Obama-bows-to-Saudi-King

- How the NSA is Actively Helping Saudi Arabia to Crackdown on Dissent (Liberty Blitzkrieg, July 25, 2014):

It is not an exaggeration to say Saudi Arabia is one of the most oppressive, authoritarian regimes on the planet. Despite having been the main foreign instigator pushing for conflict in Syria, as well as its increasingly disturbing ties to the attacks on 9/11, it remains one of the U.S. government’s closest allies.

I’ve covered some of the human rights abuses of the Saudi regime on several occasions due to the fact that it so clearly exposes the total hypocrisy of U.S. foreign policy. The most recent example was the recent sentencing of human rights lawyer and activist Waleed Abu Alkhair to 15 years in prison for “inciting public opinion,” i.e., effectively utilizing free speech. I covered this in detail in the post: Saudi Human Rights Lawyer and Activist Jailed for 15 Years for Free Speech Under New “Anti-Terror” Law.

Thanks to revelations from Edward Snowden, we now know that our taxpayer money is directly funding the ability of this autocratic regime to brutalize its citizenry.

Obama-War-On-Whistleblowers

- The “Insider Threat Program” and the Government’s War on Whistleblowers (Liberty Blitzkrieg, July 24, 2014):

The Obama Administration’s Orwellian government employee snitch network, dubbed the “Insider Threat Program,” first made headlines about a year ago. I found it to be so disturbingly significant I wrote a post about it titled: The 3 Key Takeaways from the Ridiculous “Insider Threat Program.” Those 3 key takeaways were that it…

  1. Creates a horrible and counterproductive work environment where everyone distrusts everyone else.
  2. Solidifies the fact the government is not interested in solving problems, but rather is focused on continuing the cronyism and criminality and merely covering it up.
  3. Exposes how completely hopeless and terminal the status quo is.

Fast forward a year, and it appears that several members of Congress are also becoming increasingly concerned. Some are starting to ask questions, but as usual, the “most transparent administration in history” is entirely nontransparent. We learn from the Washington Post that: Continue reading »

So the Obama administration does not require “concrete facts” or “irrefutable evidence” to brand Americans or foreigners as suspected terrorists.

Does the Obama administration then also not require “concrete facts” or “irrefutable evidence” to put somebody on Obama’s assassination list and dispatch an assassination team or drone under Obama’s assassination program?

- How the US’s terrorism watchlists work – and how you could end up on one (Guardian, July 24, 2014):

Long-withheld document provides insight into secretive system in which people can be placed on terrorism databases with astounding ease, and without any way to get off

Placement on a terrorism watchlist is a life-changing event. Your travel is monitored and in many cases restricted. If overseas, you could be stranded, costing your employment or reunion with your family. You could be detained and, certain lawsuits allege, tortured by foreign governments.

Yet the ease with which someone can be placed on US watchlists and terrorism databases contrasts markedly with the impact placement has. A long-withheld document published on Wednesday by the Intercept detailing the guidelines for placement shows that the standards for inclusion are far lower than probable cause, and the ability for someone caught in the datasets to challenge their placement do not exist. In 2013, the government made 468,749 nominations for inclusion to the Terrorist Screening Database, up from 227,932 nominations in 2009; few are rejected. Continue reading »

From the article:

“In sum, the American police state is a multi-billion dollar boondoggle, meant to keep the property and the resources of the American people flowing into corrupt government agencies and their corporate partners. For those with any accounting ability, it’s clear that the total sum of the expenses being charged to the American taxpayer’s account by the government add up to only one thing: the loss of our freedoms. It’s time to seriously consider a plan to begin de-funding this beast and keeping our resources where they belong: in our communities, working for us.”


- The Stealing of America by the Cops, the Courts, the Corporations and Congress (The Rutherford Institute, July 21, 2014):

By John W. Whitehead

“What the government is good at is collecting taxes, taking away your freedoms and killing people. It’s not good at much else.”
- Author Tom Clancy

Call it what you will—taxes, penalties, fees, fines, regulations, tariffs, tickets, permits, surcharges, tolls, asset forfeitures, foreclosures, etc.—but the only word that truly describes the constant bilking of the American taxpayer by the government and its corporate partners is theft.

We’re operating in a topsy-turvy Sherwood Forest where instead of Robin Hood and his merry band of thieves stealing from the rich to feed the poor, you’ve got the government and its merry band of corporate thieves stealing from the poor to fatten the wallets of the rich. In this way, the poor get poorer and the rich get richer. All the while, the American Dream of peace, prosperity, and liberty has turned into a nightmare of endless wars, debilitating debt, and outright tyranny.

What Americans don’t seem to comprehend is that if the government can arbitrarily take away your property, without your having much say about it, you have no true rights. You’re nothing more than a serf or a slave. Continue reading »

Dianne-FeinsteinOrganized crime

- Meet CISA – Dianne Feinstein’s Latest Attack on Privacy, Civil Liberties and the Internet (Liberty, Blitzkrieg, July 15, 2014):

There’s not much good you can count on Congress to accomplish, but when it comes to introducing and passing oligarch protecting, civil liberties destroying legislation, our “representatives” are absolutely relentless in their determination. Unsurprisingly, the only “distinctly native American criminal class,” as Mark Twain described Congress, is at it again when it comes to institutionalizing spying and attempting a legal run around the Bill of Rights.

One thing that has become crystal clear since the Edward Snowden revelations, is that much of Congress has no problem at all with unconstitutional spying. Rather, they are primarily upset it was exposed and are dead set on making sure no other whistleblower can ever do the same. Enter CISA, or The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act.

I’ve spent much of today reading about the bill, and have compiled what I think are the most astute observations. First, from the ACLU: Continue reading »

Well, at least that explains the exponential rise of brain-dead people all around us, doesn’t it?

ePUB Ahead of Print

Abstract

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Chips have been used extensively in wildlife ecology and conservation to identify and track individual specimens in a population. It has been unknown, however, how often RFID chips have been implanted in human populations for the tracking and identification of individuals. This study analyzed the prevalence of RFID Chips in 3 geographically discrete populations and found that, on average, 1 in 3 individuals carried an RFID Chip. Interestingly, there was a strong correlation with RFID Chip presence and previous dental work.

Materials and Methods

Populations
Three discrete human populations, defined by geographic location, were assessed for the presence of RFID Chips.

1 in 3 Americans Is RFID Positive

Population Midwest (MW) contained 958 individuals from Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin. Population Northeast (NE) contained 987 individuals from Maine, Rhode Island, and New Jersey. Population South West (SW) contained 1,010 individuals from Arizona and Nevada. Volunteers were recruited using standard methods and compensated in a manner consistent with industry standards. All test subjects were treated in compliance with institutional codes of ethics and standards. Continue reading »

- CIA employee’s quest to release information ‘destroyed my entire career’ (Washington Post, July 4, 2014):

His CIA career included assignments in Africa, Afghanistan and Iraq, but the most perilous posting for Jeffrey Scudder turned out to be a two-year stint in a sleepy office that looks after the agency’s historical files.

It was there that Scudder discovered a stack of articles, hundreds of histories of long-dormant conflicts and operations that he concluded were still being stored in secret years after they should have been shared with the public.

To get them released, Scudder submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act — a step that any citizen can take, but one that is highly unusual for a CIA employee. Four years later, the CIA has released some of those articles and withheld others. It also has forced Scudder out.

His request set in motion a harrowing sequence. He was confronted by supervisors and accused of mishandling classified information while assembling his FOIA request. His house was raided by the FBI and his family’s computers seized. Stripped of his job and his security clearance, Scudder said he agreed to retire last year after being told that if he refused, he risked losing much of his pension. Continue reading »

As Brandon Smith wrote,

“Regardless of what they might say about us in the future, these are the reasons why we will fight, and our pledges to resist are not empty assertions.  We will stop the course of tyranny from completing in this country and in this era, one way or another.  If this makes us “extremists”, or “terrorists”, then so be it.  I, for one, am tired of the long running game of lies and reserved rhetoric.  They know a fight is coming, and we know a fight is coming.  Let’s just admit it and be done with it.

Their greatest weakness is that they have to use deceit, propaganda, media monopoly, and false flag violence in order to convince the public that they are the “right side”.  All we have to do is continue telling the truth, and stand fast…”

Britain’s Home Secretary is pushing for new spying powers to access social media and email accounts. Theresa May argues that it’s a “matter of life and death,” and has dismissed claims the government wants to spy on citizens.

The British Home Office is pushing for changes to the law that would radically expand powers to monitor citizens. The communications data bill, which has been branded ‘the snooper’s charter’ by opponents, would allow authorities access to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.

In addition, services like Facetime and Skype would also be accessible to the UK authorities. Continue reading »

- FBI Raids Home of Dangerous Doomsday Prepper: Agents Find Legally Owned Firearms, Barrels of Food (SHFT Plan, June 22, 2014):

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and other law enforcement agencies blasted alerts all over the country earlier this week advising Americans to be on the lookout for ‘Doomsday Prepper’ Martin Winters, who police say was stockpiling over fifty “high powered” rifles, deadly booby traps and food in preparation for an “end times” event. Neighbors interviewed by mainstream news were terrified about the allegations, leaving some with the impression that Winters was “crazy” because he allegedly claimed that he would kill federal agents if necessary.

While SWAT officials indicated the likelihood that they would have to engage Winters in a firefight was high, friends and family suggested otherwise, saying that Winters may have had views different from most people but insisting that he is a “good guy” who wouldn’t hurt others unless it was necessary to do so in self defense.

- Netanyahu Orders Israel Army To Prepare For Possible Military Strike Against Iran In 2014

My commentary:

(First my apoogies for not proofreading my comment. Hope you can nevertheless understand what I want to tell you.)

Unlike stated in the video the elitists do have plans for WW3.

Keep in mind that I do not want you to get scared.

I just want to help you to get prepared spiritually, mentally and physically.

That’s all.

I know for a fact that … “life is an echo, what you send out comes back”.

And so I better be very careful what I am telling you.

Does WW3 really have to happen?

NO!

The question really is:

Will we allow it to happen???

( … like we have allowed the Patriot Act, the NDAA, all those (NWO) executive orders, GMOs, vaccines, water fluoridation, chemtrails, depleted uranium & genocide, food additives like Aspartame & MSG, Fukushima, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria, deficit spending, quantitative easing and the greatest bank robbery in world history.)

If your answer to that question is that we will probably allow WW3 to happen, then I suggest you better prepare.

Many seers have seen very similar WW3 scenarios and the reason for that is that WW III is planned, which could cause all those normally infinite future timelines to collapse into a predictable future:

When you see civil war breaking out simultaneously in Germany, France and Italy (probably because of the financial/economic collapse), then we are getting very close to the beginning of WW3 as it has been predicted.

If you see Pope Francis (= Petrus Romanus) fleeing the Vatican and Italy, then the start of WW3 is very close.

Right before or better immediately before the outbreak of WW3 (by then it is too late to prepare yourself if you haven’t done so yet) there will be an assassination taking place of up to 3 people in leading positions (Could be Putin, Obama or …).

(Probably by then NATO has provoked the Russians ‘enough’, because then …)

The next thing those seers saw were Russian tanks running all over Europe, destroying everything in their path. 

The big fight will take place in Germany.

The Russians will be stopped and defeated (… probably with the help of a third power coming (back) right out of the Inner Earth?).

The beginning of the real earth changes will also put a sudden end to the fighting.

Shortly after the fighting has stopped the real earth changes will take place.

3 days of darkness are coming (asteroid impacts?), where you shouldn’t leave the house and better be in the safest and airtight place that you know of and have available to you.

Don’t go outside, don’t open the windows as the air outside will be deadly.

Water and food stored in safe rooms (metal shielded) should be safe, otherwise all food and water that is not stored in sealed metal containers will turn bad.

(Living near the ocean and at sea level is not the place you want to be. Also living next to steep mountansides is not a good idea.)

Why do I give credence to those seers?

Alois Irlmaier for example clearly foresaw smartphones and drones in a time when they did not exist.

He foresaw rising inflation, hyperinflation, the people getting taxed into oblivion and the collapse of the euro, when he couldn’t even possibly know that the euro was planned.

I myself have seen the future several times as it came to pass. So I know that it is possible to do these things.

One of my best friends grew up as a young child with a real master who taught his parents (his father being a bank manager!) and some other people. Among them several medical doctors.

A real master?

After my friends mother had a full abortion of her sixth child this master said that she has put the child back into the womb, because the child belongs to the family and the family belongs to this child.

The next months went by and my friends mum wasn’t sure if she really was pregnant.

Then at a birthday party that master was the one who felt the labour pains and sent my friends mum to the hospital.

Where she gave birth to a healthy girl.

This master could heal the sick instantly (but she also said in some cases that the disease was due to Karma and told them when it will go away and it did) and could manifest out of thin air.

Whenever she needed money she pulled a brandnew dollar note out of her pocket.

These are just some of so many, many stories that I’ve been told.

Here is why this is important …

Many, many years ago this master predicted that after the earth changes you can choose your land wherever you want to (because there are obviously not many humans left).

As young children she showed my friend and his brothers & sisters ‘her friends’ that are here to help us (unlike the ones our governments are currently dealing with) and he remembers that she took them outside during a starry night and the stars were moving like they were riding in a rollercoaster. She told them that this are UFO’s. My friends dad (the bank manager!) saw one of these UFOs landing in close proximity.

When studying acupuncture in China I came to know my good friend (from the other side of the planet) and got told all these wonderful stories from him and later also from his entire family.

Having already experienced some tiny, tiny miracles (in comparison) myself, I had no reason to doubt him, especially because there were several stories that pointed to her being the real deal.

When her students started getting attached to her she warned them, but when they did not listen she left them.

A real master will never allow people getting to attached to him, or even start to worship him, as he only wants to show them the way, helping to speed up their spiritual growth.

If then the students become too attached to the teacher the whole purpose for the master being there in the first place is lost …

… and so he has to go. Usually that’s the beginning of a new religion. When the truth is getting lost religion appears.

If all hell breaks loose and  you don’t know where to go and turn to, go inside and connect yourself to the source, the creator, God, your inner self or whatever you may want to call it.

Know you are protected, know you are eternal.

I do not pretend to know what will happen and when, but this master said that it will come like a thief in the night.

Hopefully we can find ways to avoid WW3 and to minimize the earth changes.

If you think all of this is comlete BS then why have the elitists built the Doomsday Seed Vault?

Meet The “Minerva Research Initiative” – The Pentagon’s Preparation For “Mass Civil Breakdown” (ZeroHedge, June 14, 2014):

About a month ago we showed photos of the Chinese police engaged in a drill designed to crush a “working class insurrection”, in which the police did precisely what would be required to end a middle class rebellion. It made us wonder: what does China know that the US doesn’t. As it turns out, nothing.

Because long before China was practicing counter-riot ops using rubber bullets, all the way back in 2008 the US Department of Defense was conducting studies on the dynamics of civil unrest, and how the US military might best respond. The name of the project: “Minerva Research Initiative” and its role is to ” “improve DoD’s basic understanding of the social, cultural, behavioral and political forces that shape regions of the world of strategic importance to the U.S.Continue reading »

- BOSTON: This Is What Martial Law In The U.S. Looks Like: Americans Ordered Out Of Homes At Gunpoint By SWAT Teams (Videos & Photos)

A significant portion of the billions of rounds of ammo purchased by Homeland Security are hollow point rounds.

Under the Geneva convention, hollow points are illegal to use in war, because they cause far greater tissue damage.

And so those hollow points can and will only be used domestically, inside the United States, in the coming civil war.

Homeland Security has enough ammo for (at least) a ’24-Year Iraq War’.

- Revealed: How Obama administration arms police to the teeth with battlefield weapons (RT, June 10, 2014):

The Pentagon has an awful lot of leftovers, but luckily for law enforcement agencies across the United States they aren’t going to waste.

Millions of dollars’ worth of military gear is distributed to local police forces on an annual basis, and these regular exchanges are occurring from coast to coast in towns and cities that are hardly considered epicenters of violent crime, let alone on par with the foreign warzones where these hand-me-downs — machine guns, armored cars and other made-for-battle items — were originally intended to be used.

Over the weekend, the New York Times took a look at some staggering statistics concerning a Congress-created military-transfer program in which items in the Department of Defense’s massive inventory are routinely supplied to small-town police departments for free. Continue reading »

Across America, Police Departments Are Quietly Preparing For War (ZeroHedge, June 9, 2014):

At first blush, the title of this post could be perceived as somewhat hyperbolic by those who still have an impression of America’s police departments as bastions of safety, designed “to protect and to serve” the population of the “land of the free.” However, said impression would be promptly washed away upon reading an article in today’s NYT which citing Pentagon data, reveals that under the Obama administration, “police departments have received tens of thousands of machine guns; nearly 200,000 ammunition magazines; thousands of pieces of camouflage and night-vision equipment; and hundreds of silencers, armored cars and aircraft.

Which begs the question: just who is America’s police force, and by extension the Obama administration, which is behind this quiet militarization of local police forces with weapons that would normally be seen in a warzone, preparing for war against? Continue reading »

Police abuses in Miami Gardens, Florida, are staggering, but few Americans seem to care.

Last year, police in Miami Gardens, Florida briefly made headlines after surveillance video captured their harassment of a black clerk at a convenience store. They stopped and questioned the man, Earl Sampson, a ludicrous 258 times. On 62 occasions, they arrested him for trespassing at his place of employment, a pattern of abuse that confounded his employer, the store’s owner. After the Miami Heraldexposed this story, it made national headlines at numerous journalistic outlets, then quickly faded into obscurity at the end of one news cycle. The scope of the abuse taking place in the police department remained unknown. The vast majority of outlets that covered the story cared too little to follow up.

- 16 Reasons Why the United States is Going to Hell in a Handbasket (The Survivalist Blog, May 14, 2014):

A couple of weeks a go after expressing an urgency to put our preps into high-gear, several readers asked why that I felt so strongly, about it, and why I felt the “the end” was getting close. I think that is a good and reasonable question, so I decided to do a write up, and offer an explanation. As you can see, I don’t think any one problem or event will cause the collapse of the American empire, but a number of separate but interlocking events and issues.

Another point to consider is that the U.S. government has the resources, and inside information that would allow them to foretell when a major disaster or complete collapse is coming and they have been prepping and building underground bunkers on a mass scale and despite the fact our tax dollars are being used to build those bunkers we are not invited.

Obama-2012-NDAA-Indefinite-Detention

- Congress reaffirms indefinite detention of Americans under NDAA (RT, May 22, 2014):

The US House of Representatives approved an annual defense spending bill early Thursday after rejecting a proposed amendment that would have prevented the United States government from indefinitely detaining American citizens.

An amendment introduced in the House on Wednesday this week asked that Congress repeal a controversial provision placed in the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 that has ever since provided the executive branch with the power to arrest and detain indefinitely any US citizen thought to be affiliated with Al-Qaeda or associated organizations.

“This amendment would eliminate indefinite detention in the United States and its territories,” Rep. Adam Smith (D-Washington), a co-author of the failed amendment, said during floor debate on Wednesday, “So basically anybody that we captured, who we suspected of terrorist activity, would no longer be subject to indefinite detention, as is now, currently, the law.”

“That is an enormous amount of power to give the executive, to take someone and lock them up without due process,” Smith added. “It is an enormous amount of power to grant the executive, and I believe places liberty and freedom at risk in this country.” Continue reading »
