The Iraq Cash Cow: Part I

Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has refused to accept a salvation government as his army continues to conduct mop-up operations against ISIL Takfiri militants. Press TV reports that ISIL forces were trained at secret CIA camps inside Jordan. ISIL uses US and Saudi-supplied weapons.

As Republican war hawks call for yet more blood and treasure to be spilled on the sands of Mesopotamia, oil prices spike and military-industrial overlords prepare to milk the US Treasury for yet more contracts.

War is business and business is good. For the banksters, permanent war has been the antidote to a deflationary death spire and the jail time that would surely follow.

Swine Flu Confirmed at Shelter for Unaccompanied Minors

The shills and the trolls are busy in the comments section!

HOUSTON, Texas--An unaccompanied minor from Central America who entered the U.S. illegally has been confirmed as having the Swine Flu, also known as the H1N1 flu.

A spokesperson from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services confirmed that the sick child is at the Lackland Air Force base in San Antonio, according to KRGV. 2,000 H1N1 vaccinations are being brought to the air base, where more than 1,000 illegal immigrant minors are currently staying.

Congressman Louie Gohmert told Breitbart Texas that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services--the agency currently caring for many of the unaccompanied minors--is not doing an adequate job of screening and treating diseases.

Can Putin’s Diplomacy Prevail Over Washington’s Coercion? — Paul Craig Roberts

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is trying to save the world from war.

We should all help him.

Putin has placed his future and that of his country on a bet that Russian diplomacy can prevail over Washington’s bribes, threats, blackmail, and coercion. Putin is appealing to Western Europeans. Putin is saying, “I am not the problem. Russia is not the problem. We are reasonable. We are ignoring Washington’s provocations. We want to work things out and to find a peaceful solution.”

Washington is saying: “Russia is a threat. Putin is the new Hitler..

Special Report, FBI Killed Franklin Scandal Investigator from Wayne Madsen Report

A very knowledgeable source involved with what became known as the “Franklin Scandal” told WMR that Caradori flew to Chicago ostensibly to attend the All Star game on July 10 at Wrigley Field. In reality, the trip to the game was a cover for Caradori to meet with a source who handed him photographs that proved that Nebraskan children, some from the famed Boy’s Town orphanage, were being used for the sexual gratification of important political leaders in Washington, including Vice President and President George H W Bush.

Caradori phoned his wife and another investigator shortly before the All-Star game and told them the same thing: “I got what I came after. I got ‘em by the balls. I’ve got pictures. I will take them to the game and bring them back to Nebraska.”

U.S. Archivist David Ferriero: the IRS “did not follow the law”

Rep. Trey Gowdy hammered IRS Commissioner John Koskinen when he said that he found the IRS of no wrong doing. Gowdy pressed Koskinen on how he knows there was no criminal wrongdoing when he hasn’t looked at criminal statutes.

Gowdy blasted Koskinen and shouted, “You don’t have any idea of criminal wrongdoing or not!”

Gowdy, a former persecutor, told Koskinen that there is a “negative inference” because of the inability of the IRS to retrieve the Lerner emails that the IRS claim were destroyed.

It turns out though the IRS did break the law according to U.S. Archivist David Ferriero.

According to FreeBeacon.com, U.S. Archivist David Ferriero of the National Archives and Records Administration told Rep. Tim Walberg (R., Mich.) that the IRS “did not follow the law” when they failed to notify his administration that they had lost Lois Lerner’s email records.

And why has the media failed to inquire about this massive Intelligence failure?

Israel Raids Russian TV Offices

Israeli forces have raided a building in Ramallah Palestine where the offices of several media outlets, including Russia Today’s RT Arabic channel, are located.

The IDF raided the Palmedia company building in the West Bank city overnight on Friday. The troops broke down the doors of several offices, destroyed some of the equipment and confiscated records, RT’s correspondent Yafa Staiti reported.

“Due to the actions of the military there is no Internet connection in the office. We’ve lost the archive of video footage and other materials. Office furniture and computers have been damaged,” she said.

It was not clear who exactly fired the anti-tank missile that hit the Israeli border from an area contested by the Syrian army and the rebels.

The strikes on targets in Golan Heights were carried out shortly after midnight, Haaretz reports citing an IDF official, who called it a direct response to Sunday’s deadly incident when an anti-tank projectile fired from Syrian territory struck near the border fence on the Israeli occupied Golan Heights.

Trey Gowdy a Congressman from South Carolina and is obviously an excellent lawyer. He grilled IRS Commissioner Koskinen and made Koskinen admit to not knowing much about the law or anything else and how the White House lied.

This is an awesome video and I wish all the Congressional officials were as him with finding the truth of all things in the government.

A new resolution has been filed in the house, Steve Stockman from Texas has filed the resolution "The dog at my tax return" in the house.

WASHINGTON -- Taxpayers who do not produce documents for the Internal Revenue Service will be able to offer a variety of dubious excuses under legislation introduced by Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX 36) a week after the IRS offered an incredibly dubious excuse for its failure to turn documents over to House investigators.

THE SONASOFT SAGA - THE IRS HAS A CONTRACT WITH A COMPANY THAT BACKS UP ALL OF THEIR EMAILS!

John Koskinen's testimony before the House Ways & Means Committee basically came down to "The Dog Ate My Emails", infuriating when you consider that the IRS demands all Americans keep all financial records for up to 7 years for possible review by the IRS, while the IRS was free to dispose of embarrassing and criminal evidence at their discretion. Worse, apparently emboldened by Attorney General Eric Holser's steadfast refusal to allow the Department of Justice to open a criminal investigation into the IRS' actions (possibly to to the DOJ's own complicity in siccing the FBI on Obama's enemies), Koskinin refused to even apologize for the lost emails, barely able to keep the smirk off of his face!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The story is going viral across the net today. By tomorrow the corporate media will have to cover it. That means Issa and Ryan will have no choice but to call the IRS on their obvious lie that there are no backups for the missing emails. Please share with all of your social media. I will keep this story at the top of the main page for a while, New stories will start just below.

Netanyahu Endorses ISIS Invasion of Iraq

The current conflict, while regional, has the ability to spill over borders and adversely effect nations outside of the Middle East, most obviously through a disruption of oil supplies transiting the Persian Gulf. The effect on the world economy would be catastrophic and would undoubtedly precipitate a world war.

Netanyahu told the United States to stay out of the fight currently developing in Iraq and allow both sides to annihilate each other. “Don’t strengthen either of them. Weaken both,” he advised.

Their solution to the crisis that has been orchestrated with escorts advertised to help shuttle the people illegally crossing the border go anywhere in the USA without proper screening. The solution by the politicians is trying to make the American people accept a solution they will not accept. Remember what Rham Immanuel said” Do not let a good crisis go to waste.”

A third-generation ISP officer, Klitch patrols an area laden with potential lucre, a stretch of I-84 in western Idaho bordering Oregon, where medicinal marijuana use is legal. Forty percent of all pot confiscated in Idaho is medicinal marijuana legally obtained in Oregon. Kendall Jeffs, a medical marijuana user who lives in western Idaho, describes the anxious trip home from Oregon as being akin to “crossing the Berlin Wall. It's like going into another country.”

The Glories of America’s Wars: “Made in Hollywood” by the Pentagon’s Propaganda Machine

A short time after the worst US war defeat in the nation’s history – the Vietnam War – a growing wave of films began emerging in attempts to grapple with America’s open war wounds. Some focused on allegorical cautionary tales such as “Apocalypse Now,” an epic masterpiece showing the war in Southeast Asia as a nightmare of misguided confusion and terror, and ultimately its senseless brutality. The caricatures depicted left an indelible imprint on viewers with Robert Duvall’s perverse character proclaiming that napalm in the morning “smells like victory.” Or the decorated war hero-West Pointer renegade colonel played by Marlon Brando who saw the evil Empire war for what it was worth and jumped ship to the other side to become a hero worshipped, warrior God to the indigenous deep jungle inhabitants. Francis Ford Coppola’s 1979 tour-de-force of an anti-war film became both a box office smash as well as Oscar nominated Best Picture with Coppola himself nominated as Best Director.

Splitting up Iraq….. It’s all for Israel

The only reason to dissolve Iraq, is Israel. Israel does not want a unified Iraq. Israel does not want an Iraq that can stand on its own two feet. Israel wants to make sure that Iraq never remerges as a regional power. And there’s only one way to achieve that goal, that is, to follow Yinon’s prescription of “breaking up Iraq …along ethnic/religious lines …so, three (or more) states will exist around the three major cities: Basra, Baghdad and Mosul.”

BACK TO BAGHDAD!

One would think the neoconservatives who engineered the Iraq War – the worst disaster for the United States since Vietnam – would never emerge from hiding.

Not so. With dazzling chutzpah, former Vice President Dick Cheney, the real power in the Bush administration, just claimed President Barack Obama was responsible for the growing mess in Iraq.

Obama is a wimp allowing America’s foes to run rampant across the Mideast and Eastern Europe, growled Cheney. He wants US troops to reoccupy Iraq, and maybe Syria. Cheney’s blustering was applauded by another over-the-hill dotard, Republican party leader Sen. John McCain.

Out from the Washington woodwork crept a swarm of neoconservatives. They joined Cheney in blasting Obama over Iraq and calling for more wars against the Muslim world.

Iraq ISIS Crisis — The Zionist Treason that Has Led Syria, Iraq and Ultimately America to Disaster

In the most hypocritical statement to date, one of the most radical supporters of aid to the terrorists in Syria, made the following statement quoted by a CBS News article, “Will ISIS plan a 9/11-style terror plot against the U.S.?”

“Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” Sunday that U.S. officials have warned the next major attack on U.S. soil could emanate from the region.

“The seeds of 9/11s are being planted all over Iraq and Syria,” Graham said. “They want an Islamic caliphate that runs through Syria and Iraq…and they plan to drive us out of the Mideast by attacking us here at home.”

‘Blair should be lecturing on Iraq from the dock at the International Criminal Court’

It has been heartening to witness the backlash against former British Prime Minister Tony Blair over his attempt to deny any responsibility for the chaos and carnage that has engulfed northern and eastern Iraq in recent days.

When it comes to the region, it is time for the West – in particular, the US and the UK – to abandon their nonsensical policy of supporting the opposition in Syria and instead acknowledge that the government of Bashar al-Assad is playing a key role in stemming the flood of Sunni extremism and has been over the last three years. In fact, without the resilience of the Syrian Arab Army the region would have been plunged into even more chaos and destruction than it is at present. For three years, the Syrian government, the Syrian people, army and allies have stood against this de facto Islamic Khmer Rouge in Syria otherwise known as ISIS (ISIL), an organization and ideology so beyond the pale that its defeat and destruction is absolutely vital.

Burn, Men in Black, burn

We interrupt this desert catwalk to announce they will NOT invade Baghdad. On the other hand, they are busy accelerating the balkanization – and eventual partition – of both Syria and Iraq. They are NOT a CIA brainchild (how come Langley never thought about it?); they are in fact the bastard children of (disgraced) Bandar Bush’s credit card largesse.

Terror in Iraq; Roots and Motivation

“A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.” John F. Kennedy

Terrorism*, directly or sponsored, has long been America’s weapon of mass destruction – its weapon of choice. As a strategy, it outdates ‘human rights’ and ‘democracy promotion’ and has proven itself to be far more effective by creating mayhem and fear, removing resistance to intervention. The events of 9/11 justified this age-old tactic. Although the tentacles of America’s terror tactic reach back far and spread wide, this article seeks to address the presence of ISIL (or ISIS).

Will ISIS Create al-Sham Caliphate & Liberate Palestine?

ISIS appears uniformly contemptuous of the Zionist regime and its army and also appears eager to fight them in the near future despite expectation that the regime will use nuclear weapons.

“Do you think that we do not have access to nuclear devises? The Zionists know that we do and if we ever believe they are about to use theirs we will not hesitate. After the Zionists are gone, Palestine will have to be decontaminated and rebuilt just like areas where there has been radiation released.”

IRAQ, ISIS, AND INTERVENTION: JUST WHAT IS GOING ON?

ISIS is a perfect mechanism for two American goals, the first being to assist in the disposal of Maliki, something which would make Israel very happy because it would cut the Iran connection. Second, ISIS can be used as an excuse for American intervention by air attacks into Syria, perhaps even the insertion of limited ground forces there. Assad and the Syrian army have foiled the elaborate secret effort to topple him.

BEX ALERT - Russia is getting ready to repeat Gleiwitz incident

Heightened rhetoric by RF (Russian Federation) representatives about “allegedly repeated” invasions of Ukrainian armed forces reminded similar tactics of Nazi Germany that started World War II.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This supports the idea that the US, as the war to force the world back to Bretton-Woods and the Petrodollar crumbles, is looking to try to create outright war with Russia and China, whose Rubles and Yuans are rapidly displacing the self-destructing dollar for international trade and banking.

Let us be clear; Russia does not want or need to invade anyone. It is the United States that has been invading, bombing, drone-striking, and no-so-covertly overthrowing governments to install puppet rulers friendly to US financial interests. 17 nations so far on two continents. Technically the US has already started a new world war. Plus operations are underway to overthrow elected governments and replace them with puppet regimes in many other nations, including the US overthrow of Ukraine's elected government last January which is why we are in this mess now.

It is the US that wants to start a war with Russia, but want to make it look like it is Russia's fault!

The Death of Vincent Foster - My article

This is the story that nobody dares touch.

Despite having reported the discovery of Dr. Haut's signed report confirming the existence of a second wound to Vincent Foster's neck, radio host Rush Limbaugh to this very day refers to Vincent Foster's death as a suicide.

Even Matt Drudge, when presented with the FBI records proving that the FBI fraudulently manufactured Lisa Foster's recognition of the gun found at Fort Marcy Park, refused to get involved, opting instead for a story accusing Sidney Blumenthal of domestic violence (for which Drudge was then sued).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is also the story that brought my career in Hollywood to an abrupt and 20 years ago and launched my "career" as a truth activist and eventual talk-radio host. I was working in film production in 1994 when I stumbled quite by accident on evidence of FBI cover-up in the murder of White House deputy Counsel Vincent Foster, and got myself blacklisted out of Hollywood for it. With so much free time on my hands I started researching into more cover-ups and launched the website that today is whatreallyhappened.com. Eventually my wife and I were forced to leave Southern California, as the death threats were tiresome and for a while we lived in Washington State. I was still doing visual effects work, but only in other countries. Then I got a call from a Japanese company that was doing a film here in Hawaii, and they didn’t care that the White House hated me, and that is how we wound up here in Hawaii. I kept up the political website, started doing radio in 2007, and worked my way back into a career in visual effects, serving as a VFX supervisor for four seasons of “LOST.” Then, during the first season of “Off The Map” I realized that I was getting a bit old to carry the workload and could not do both TV and peace activism, so I quit film work to focus all my energy on stopping WW3. Maybe when peace and prosperity breaks out I will try to return to film, or maybe I'll just spend the rest of my life being Claire's "roadie."

IRS head won't apologize for lost Lerner e-mails

The commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service refused to apologize to Congress Friday for losing e-mails related to its targeting of conservative groups, saying it's still attempting to recover the data and it's too soon to know how many e-mails are missing.

"I don't think an apology is owed," Commissioner John Koskinen told the House Ways and Means Committee.

Secret Trade in Services Agreement (TISA) - Financial Services Annex

Today, WikiLeaks released the secret draft text for the Trade in Services Agreement (TISA) Financial Services Annex, which covers 50 countries and 68.2%1 of world trade in services. The US and the EU are the main proponents of the agreement, and the authors of most joint changes, which also covers cross-border data flow. In a significant anti-transparency manoeuvre by the parties, the draft has been classified to keep it secret not just during the negotiations but for five years after the TISA enters into force.

Chocolate King’s «Peace Plan» With a Hard Centre

Suspicions are deep among ethnic Russian populations in the South and East that Poroshenko is not preparing a peace initiative, but rather an intensification of the two-month-old offensive.

Indeed, the premise of the Kiev peace proposal marketed by Poroshenko this week is based on an insidious false premise. Poroshenko said the ceasefire would be short-lived and the purpose was «to allow Russian mercenaries to leave our territory». This premise promotes the propaganda myth put out by Kiev and amplified by Washington and its NATO allies that the conflict in the East and South of Ukraine is all down to Russian subversion and annexation of territory by stealth.

The Obama Death List: A Staggering Account of Suspicious Deaths and ‘Working Theories’

Deaths connected to the Obama White House

Jun 21 06:28

Bush Death List

This is a list of bodies, a roster of the dead, who might have been called Witnesses had they not met their untimely ends. Some of the names on this list will give you pause. Some are rumor. Some you may find incredible, and some frightening. Do your own research. You will draw your own conclusions.

The above paragraph began the last edition of the Bush Body Count. In previous editions, there were no special criteria for adding bodies – only that they could be related to the Bush family in some way, and be dead. In fact, the original Bush Body Count started as a parody of the so-called Clinton Death List.

Times have changed. The Bush Body Count is no longer a parody, and many of the names have been removed. This edition examines the scandals and misdeeds of the Bush family generations, and lists the corpses they leave in their wake.

Sonasoft Software Licenses and Software Maintenance Support

Synopsis:
Added: Sep 12, 2008 1:01 pm
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) intends to award a sole source purchase order to Sonasoft Corporation, for the purchase of the software licenses related to Exchange Disaster Recovery capabilities. These items and services have been determined to meet the definition of commercial items in accordance with Part 2.101 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation.

The IRS has a need for the following items:

CLIN 0001 – Sonasafe Application, Item Number SC, Quantity 4

CLIN 0002 – Exchange Standby License, Item Number SC-B, Quantity 4

CLIN 0003 – Exchange Agent, Item Number SE, Quantity 8

CLIN 0004 – Exchange Standby Agent, Item Number SE-S, Quantity 8

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This page at fbo.gov shows the renewal of services and licenses from Sonasoft for the IRS. Note that some of the products interface with Microsoft Exchange Server. This means that Lois Lerner's (and the other six IRS officials) emails did not reside solely on her local hard drive, but were archived by the built-in system of exchange as well as the added products from Sonasoft.

White House: ISIS Airstrikes Won't be Confined to Iraq

What can I say! Major Brain Disorder! Syria through the back door.

White House spokesman Josh Earnest confirmed that when the Obama Administration begins to launch air strikes against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), they won’t actually be confined to Iraq.

Other officials had indicated President Obama wouldn’t hesitate to launch strikes in Syria, but Earnest’s comments suggest the whole world is the battlefield once again and that President Obama might conceivably strike anywhere he wants.

Earnest also ducked questions about needing Congressional authorization for such strikes beyond Iraq, insisting that the President had long attacked other countries without it being a big deal.

There is nothing left to lose anymore and more to gain if we all become bold based on our moral convictions to do what is right.

Reviving the ‘Successful Surge’ Myth

The hard truth is that the bloody folly of the Iraq War was not “salvaged” by the “surge” – despite that preferred Washington narrative. As thrilling as it might be to think back on the heroic President Bush and the brave neocons bucking the anti-war pressures in 2007 and saving the day, the harsh reality is that another 1,000 U.S. soldiers and many more Iraqis were sent to their deaths in the cause of creating a politically useful myth.

Further, since almost no one who promoted this criminal and bloody enterprise was held accountable after Mission Accomplished wasn’t, these opinion leaders were still around in 2007 at the time of the “surge” and thus in a position to cite any positive trends as proof of “success.” Many are still around voicing their august opinions – the likes of Sen. John McCain, former Vice President Dick Cheney and neocon theorist Robert Kagan – so they still get to tell the rest of us how really great their judgment was.

It is not new to history that even in tight circles of power fierce fighting could break out and killing of competing members of that circle was common place in History. Especially when the power of the ruling circle is no more really challenged within its home society, as this is the case with the US and its extended system of manipulation of the masses, and when at the same time there´s much to win and much to lose because of outside factors the struggle for strategies could become very fierce.

Once upon a (very recent) time, the US government used to help only "good terrorists" (in Syria), instead of "bad terrorists". That was an echo of a (less recent) time when it was supporting only "good Taliban" and not "bad Taliban".

So what happens when Brookings Institution so-called "experts" start blabbering that the Islamic State of Iraq and Sham (ISIS) is

really the baddest jihadi outfit on the planet (after all they were cast out of al-Qaeda)? Are they so badass that by warped newspeak logic they're now the new normal?

ISIL backed by US, Israel, KSA

MEET THE PLAYERS
For eight years, Dick Cheney and his Israeli/Saudi friends wielded the world’s largest military force, America’s two million men, $1.5 trillion dollar per year juggernaut.

Intelligence sources now tell us that this same trio, hiding behind the ISIL, is waging a corporate war across the Middle East, a surrogate war backed by corporate billions.

Military and intelligence analysts conclude that ISIL operations continue to enjoy full intelligence and logistical support, port and rail facilities through Aqaba, Jordan, safe transit for militants through Israel. All other claimed sources of supply, particularly those through Turkey are a fabrication, deception and cover.

The sudden collapse of the Iraqi state is presented by the international press as a result of the attack of the terrorist group ISIL.

Besides, who can believe that those who support ISIL in Syria sincerely condemn its actions in Iraq? Thierry Meyssan reveals what’s in the cards.

Iraqi hydrocarbon prize of U.S. invasion in danger

“Before the 2003 invasion, Iraq’s domestic oil industry was fully nationalized and closed to Western oil companies. A decade of war later, it is largely privatized and utterly dominated by foreign firms,” the CNN report concluded, indicating that, “From ExxonMobil and Chevron to BP and Shell, the West’s largest oil companies have set up shop in Iraq. So have a slew of American oil service companies, including Halliburton, the Texas-based firm Dick Cheney ran before becoming George W. Bush’s running mate in 2000.

US changes nuclear strategy to first strike: Analyst

The United States has changed its military doctrine in favor of using nuclear weapons for preemptive purposes, an analyst writes for Press TV.

“US war doctrine has been changed. US nuclear weapons are no longer restricted to a retaliatory force, but have been elevated to the role of preemptive nuclear attack,” Paul Craig Roberts wrote in a column for Press TV website.

The analyst’s article comes against the backdrop of ongoing tensions between Russia and the US over Ukraine.

Washington has long accused Moscow of interfering in Ukraine by providing arms and support to pro-Russian protesters in the East European country. Russia dismisses allegations of involvement in Ukraine’s unrest.

“Washington has begun the run-up to the Third World War, and Europeans seem to be onboard,” wrote Roberts, adding that the US government has been “demonizing Russia…with shameless lies and propaganda” in an attempt to prepare Americans and its allies for “war with Russia.”

Obama to Congress: I don't need new permission on Iraq

I'll let you know what's going on, but I don't need new congressional authority to act, President Barack Obama told congressional leaders Wednesday about his upcoming decision on possible military intervention in Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

New authority? You don't have an old authority! Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution gives to the Executive Branch the command of the nation’s armed forces, while Article I, Section 8 gives to the Legislative Branch the power to decide when the United States goes to war.

Unless you are referring to that "AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF MILITARY FORCE AGAINST IRAQ RESOLUTION OF 2002" . Because there is a bit of a problem there. That authorization passed by Congress contained two conditions that had to be met. First was that UN resolutions against nuclear weapons in Iraq had to be enforced. Second that the use of force was pre-authorized against Iraq for direct threats to US security.

On March 18th, 2003, President Bush submitted a letter of transmittal to the US Congress activating the Congressional Authorization for the use of force in Iraq. In that letter Bush stated that Iraq was in defiance of the United Nations' ban on weapons of mass destruction, and that the invasion of Iraq was needed to punish those responsible for 9-11. In hindsight, Bush lied on both points. Bush himself later admitted that Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11, and there never were any weapons of mass destruction. President Bush lied to the US Congress when he claimed to have proof of both of those assertions. The forged Niger "Yellow cake" documents, actions by the White House to keep the fact of that forgery secret, the "Dodgy Dossier", etc. all prove the lie was intentional with malice aforethought. That makes the first invasion of Iraq a war crime, illegal and unconstitutional, committed by President Bush.

It also means that 2002 authorization is null and void, since the conditions in it were never met. Iraq was fully in compliance with UN resolutions on weapons of mass destruction, and Iraq was not part of the 9-11 attack on the United States. The 2002 Authorization was never legally in effect and still isn't.

Under the War Powers act the President can deploy US military forces to respond to a direct threat to America, such as your soldiers protecting the embassy, but you cannot invade an entire nation. The President's War Powers authority only lasts 30 days, after which the decision to continue reverts to the Congress.

No, Mr. President, you may not take this nation to war without an Act of Congress. You don't have the authority to start a war on your own and you never did.

Iraq: The US Sponsored Sectarian “Civil War” is a “War of Aggression”, The “Supreme International Crime”

More than 11 years ago, high ranking government leaders in the United States and Britain likely broke international law in planning and waging the Iraq War.

The great command of the Nuremberg Tribunal convened after the Second World War to punish the evil that had shaken Europe was to abolish the “supreme international crime” – the planning and waging of wars of aggression. “War is essentially an evil thing,” the Tribunal held as it passed judgment on German leaders. “Its consequences are not confined to the belligerent states alone, but affect the whole world.”

'He’s just absolutely ignoring the Constitution': Republican Representative says there's 'probably' enough votes in the House to impeach Obama

President Barack Obama has acted so unlawfully that he 'probably' wouldn't survive an impeachment vote in the House of Representatives, Republican Rep. Lou Barletta told a radio host on Monday.

'He’s just absolutely ignoring the Constitution, and ignoring the laws and ignoring the checks and balances,' the Pennsylvania lawmaker told News Radio 910 WSBA personality Gary Sutton yesterday.

'The problem is, what do you do?' Barletta continued. 'For those that say impeach him for breaking the laws or bypassing the laws — could that pass in the House? It probably could.'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Then we get Biden, which I don't see as a significant improvement.

Impeaching Obama doesn't change the systemic problems. We will all be told that the problem has been solved, but the NSA will go on spying on you, the FBI trying to entrap you, Wall Street will stall want their wars for Bretton-Woods and the Petrodollar, and Congress will continue to whore themselves to Israel. The looting of the American people to prop up Wall Street will not even hesitate, and Biden will go on waving human-caused global warming at us to impose a carbon tax, then a methane tax, then a water vapor tax, then an oxygen tax, then a sunlight tax, etc. etc. etc.

I think the entire US federal Government needs to be impeached for having violated the restrictions imposed on them under the Constitution.

Obama Eyes Long Campaign of ‘Selective’ Airstrikes for Iraq

According to senior administration officials, President Obama’s latest notion on intervention in Iraq is to model it after the ongoing Yemen drone war, launching “highly selective” airstrikes against ISIS forces in Iraq rather than engaging in a full-scale air war aimed at changing the situation on the ground.

The IRS scandal explodes

Norman Cillo, an Army veteran who worked in intelligence and a former program manager at Microsoft, argued it is very difficult to lose emails for good and laid out six reasons why he believes Congress is “being lied to” about the Lerner emails:

1. I believe the government uses Microsoft Exchange for their email servers. They have built-in exchange mail database redundancy. So, unless they did not follow Microsofts recommendations they are telling a falsehood. You can see by the diagram below that if you have three servers in a DAG you have three copies of the database.

2. Every IT organization that I know of has hotswappable disk drives. Every server built since 2000 has them. Meaning that if a single disk goes bad it’s easy to replace.

Disappointment for Hillary Clinton as sales for her memoir 'struggle in its first week'

Hillary Clinton's new book 'Hard Choices' is a 'bomb', according to a publishing source.

The former first lady's memoir - detailing her time as secretary of state under Obama - has sold just 60,000 hardcover copies and 24,000 e-books, the source told The Weekly Standard.

The results come after publisher Simon & Schuster's 'hoping and praying' that 150,000 print copies would be sold in the first week after the book went on sale on June 10, the source added.

'Between us, they are nervous at S&S,' the source said. 'Sales were well below expectations and the media was a disaster... It's a bomb, but it will be interesting to see how they spin it.'

The US must really be desperate in Iraq to so openly undermine their own anti-Iran propaganda this way.

CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller was simply doing his job when he tweeted President Barack Obama‘s weekend plans. Little did he know that his effort would unleash a wave of criticism directed at the president.

With the situation in Iraq at critical mass and Baghdad on the verge of falling into the hands of the Islamic militant group known as ISIS, and the impending humanitarian crises unfolding on the southern border with Mexico, folks were simply astonished at what they were seeing.

VIRTUAL 9-11: Will the US & Israel Hack The US Banking System Computers and Falsely Blame It On Iran (or Syria or Russia or China)?

Such a cyber false-flag also gives the US Government the excuse to take total control of the internet so that those pesky truth-seeking bloggers don't give the slaves uppity ideas that this is just another war-starting hoax like the attack on the USS Liberty or 9-11 or the Boston bombing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All of a sudden we are seeing an almost obsessive "promotion" of cyber-attack in the media, coupled with a flood of major newsworthy hacking on various servers (including my own) while the NSA, which purports to monitor all computer traffic, strangely unable to identify even a single one of the perpetrators.

The latest is the story of a Chinese hacker using the name "ghost" and password "hijack" (which let us be honest, does not sound like a real Chinese person) playing games with a US utility.

Is the US Government preparing a false-flag takedown of the internet to silence those who ask questions as a prelude to escalating WW3?

IRS to lawmakers: Subpoenaed Lois Lerner conspiracy emails are missing

During one of this year's busiest news days , which included coverage of the crisis in Iraq, the transfer of Sgt, Bowe Bergdahl from Germany to a hospital in Texas, and the deluge of illegal alien children coming across the U.S.-Mexican border, the Internal Revenue Service decided to spring its bad news on GOP lawmakers on Friday. IRS officials claim that they lost their former worker Lois Lerner's emails covering the years 2009 through 2011 that were subpoenaed by House of Representatives committee chairman.

The roots of Eric Cantor’s defeat

The charge might surprise some on Capitol Hill, who view Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, as far more eager to negotiate with the enemy than his No. 2. Yet many on the right, in Washington and the Old Dominion, also see Cantor as a squish — a supporter of immigration reform who voted to raise the federal debt ceiling in 2011 and pass the TARP bank bailout in 2008, the measure that helped spark the entire tea party movement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

FOX News is reporting that Cantor's defeat will revive the debate over raising the debt ceiling for the Federal Government. This IS an issue all Americans need to pay attention to as we head into the November elections. But all Americans need to understand that the visible debate is a smokescreen for the real question every American needs to be asking right now.

The Constitution of the United States

The Congress shall have Power ... To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution gives to the Executive Branch the command of the nation’s armed forces, while Article I, Section 8 gives to the Legislative Branch the power to decide when the United States goes to war.

Congress attempted to shirk their duty to decide when the nation goes to war by passing the "AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF MILITARY FORCE AGAINST IRAQ RESOLUTION OF 2002"

On March 18th, 2003, President Bush submitted a letter of transmittal to the US Congress activating the Congressional Authorization for the use of force in Iraq. In that letter Bush stated that Iraq was in defiance of the United Nations' ban on weapons of mass destruction, and that the invasion of Iraq was needed to punish those responsible for 9-11. In hindsight, Bush lied on both points. Bush himself later admitted that Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11, and there never were any weapons of mass destruction. President Bush lied to the US Congress when he claimed to have proof of both of those assertions. The forged Niger "Yellow cake" documents, actions by the White House to keep the fact of that forgery secret, the "Dodgy Dossier", etc. all prove the lie was intentional with malice aforethought. That makes the first invasion of Iraq a war crime, illegal and unconstitutional, committed by the President, with Congress as accessories to that crime.

The President is not allowed to lie to the people of the United States, certainly not to the Congress. The Congress, having been lied to, was duty bound to initiate impeachment proceedings at that point against President Bush. It was, after all, not sex for which Bill Clinton was impeached, but lying about it. Lying to Congress under any situation is a high crime or misdemeanor by any reasonable definition of those phrases. Lying to start a war is the worst crime a leader can commit against their own people. It is the highest of all High Crimes and Misdemeanors possible.

So here we are with the people of Iraq taking back their nation (just as Iran did in 1979), and Obama is all set to order the US military forces to re-invade Iraq and teach those uppity people that the US now owns their nation and its oil. And once again, the President is starting a war without a formal declaration from Congress, and worse, Congress is refusing to obey their duty to call the President on his illegal and unconstitutional actions.

It was illegal for the US to invade Iraq in the first place, and equally illegal to invade it again!

 

As a side note, whenever a politician gets caught using government assets for private use, they are forced to reimburse the treasury. The same should hold true for the Presidents when they use public property, in this case the military, for private little wars of their own. Why should We The People pay for the costs of war (along with its ruinous interest) when the war is illegal? I think former President Bush should be billed for all of the material costs of the war(s) in Iraq. I know it is a lot of money, but I understand that the Bush family is fairly rich! :)

Obama Regime 'proactively facilitating human-trafficking' over Mexican border

It is now estimated that 99,000 children have been transported through our border with Mexico and into the United States since the beginning of this year. It has been suspected that Barack Obama is deliberately allowing and condoning this, as a way to apply the Cloward-Piven strategy to immigration and overwhelm our Southern border with so many Mexican children and illegal aliens that it will force Congress to capitulate to his demand to pass amnesty. Now this has been proven true.

NY Times: President Obama Should Unilaterally Raise the Tax Rate on Carried Interest Earned by Hedge Fund Managers

President Obama could change the tax treatment of carried interest with a phone call to the Treasury Department. But the White House will need a precise understanding of the regulatory landscape to make a change that is fair, easy to administer, and will hold up in court.

The administration has increasingly relied on executive branch rule-making authority to make policy without waiting for a gridlocked Congress to act. The White House has made significant changes to education policy, immigration policy, environmental standards and climate change policy, and, most recently, student loans. And it has the legal authority to unilaterally change the tax treatment of carried interest. ...

FLASHBACK - THE LIE OF THE (LAST) CENTURY

There is nothing new in a government lying to their people to start a war. Indeed because most people prefer living in peace to bloody and horrific death in war, any government that desires to initiate a war usually lies to their people to create the illusion that support for the war is the only possible choice they can make.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wrote this article way back when the US Government was still trying to justify the invasion and conquest of Iraq by claiming that Saddam Hussein had nuclear weapons. It is a detailed breakdown of all of the obvious lies, frauds, and falsehoods used to trick Americans into supporting that war. The real agenda, long hidden, was to punish Iraq for daring to sell their oil for the Euro and to install a puppet regime that would enforce the sale of Iraq's oil for the US dollar.

So, as Obama cranks up the drones and sends the troops back into Iraq for "Invasion: The sequel - This time we'll get it RIGHT!", expect a second helping of highly odoriferous bovine excrement served to you by the US corporate media.

Phony scandal? IRS information on tax exempt groups sent to FBI

With most of the nation's news media covering what President Barack Obama and his minions like to call the latest phony scandal -- namely the prisoner swap which entailed trading five top Taliban terrorists for one suspected deserter -- the American people probably missed the latest revelation on Monday involving Obama's IRS "phony scandal," according to documents from a Beltway watchdog group.

After the U.S. Justice Department in June turned over an IRS database to the House Oversight Committee in their response to a subpoena issued by the committee's chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the Justice Department now says it was informed by Internal Revenue Service officials that the database contains confidential, legally protected information on taxpayers that shouldn't have been submitted to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the first place, according to Judicial Watch.

UPDATE: To Well Sourced List of Examples of Obamas Lying, Lawbreaking, Corruption, Cronyism, Etc.*(Now at 694)*

Every President, every politician, and every human being tells lies and engages in acts of hypocrisy. But Barack Obama does these things to a far greater degree than anyone else that I have ever known of. His campaign promises were so much better sounding than anyone else’s – no lobbyists in his administration, waiting five days before signing all non-emergency bills so people would have time to read them, putting health care negotiations on C-SPAN, reading every bill line by line to make sure money isn’t being wasted, prosecution of Wall St. criminals, ending raids against medical marijuana in states where it’s legal, high levels of transparency. Obama’s promises of these wonderful things sounded inspiring and sincere. They sounded so much better than the promises of any other President. So when Obama broke these promises, it felt so much worse than when other Presidents broke their promises.

Harf even suggested that Mitchell and others were attempting to “recreate” the history of the bin Laden raid by insisting that members were briefed on it before it was executed.

The other Cold War that no one talks about

As usual, the biggest story in America is suppression of news. There has never been a time when the media has taken such an aggressive position, not even after 9/11. It’s more than Ukraine or Syria. The US has not only outraged Russia and China but other nations that were once afraid of the US are now ready to hit back. The simplest way to go after the US is to release classified intelligence showing the US as an aggressor nation or worse, a dupe, violent, dangerous and uncaring.

We forget what it was like, the carefully orchestrated orgy of hate after the nuclear demolition of the WTC and the missile attack on the Pentagon. This is one of many shameful moments in American history, where a nation abandoned common sense and backed a gang of traitors whose common purpose, all can see now, was and is the destruction of the United States and “her freedoms.”

The New McCarthyism

Once again vast sums of money are being spent on a war, this time a hot one and getting hotter. Once again parties with a vested interest are out to smear and destroy anyone who dares ask if the wars are worth the sacrifice of our young people (not to mention the money), indeed if there really is any point at all to the wars aside from justifying the flow of money to defense contractors.

But the Soviet Union has gone out of business. The word "communist" doesn't carry the same psychological impact it used to, so the war hawk smear squad has come up with a new one, "Anti-Semite." Like "Communist", "Anti-Semite" is used to ruin the lives of people who have not actually done anything wrong other than to challenge the war profiteers. It is a new word for an old trick, and I am amazed that they are still playing the same old game, but I guess the FBI can always find some dumb-assed idiot to fall for it and do their dirty work of wrecking a career for them.

Hillary Clinton Won't Second Guess President Obama's 'Very Hard Choice' On Bergdahl

In an exclusive interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer, Hillary Clinton defended President Obama’s decision to swap five Taliban prisoners for U.S. solider Bowe Bergdahl, saying she won’t second guess him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All of a sudden, the lockstep defense of Obama by Democrats starts to make sense. Obama's latest PR stunt, bringing back Bergdahl to offset the damage from the VA scandal, has blown up in his face with the revelation that Bergdahl was a deserter and defector. Standing with Obama on this issue mere months before the November elections is not going to help the re-election chances for Democrats. But with Obama in his last term of office, it doesn't make sense to rick ones own career to protect him.

But it makes perfect sense if they are protecting Hillary for 2016.

As things stand, Hillary looks to handily win the 2016 Democratic nomination. And short of bringing back Ron Paul, the GOP is unlikely to find a candidate who can keep Hillary from the White House.

But if Obama is impeached, or resigns, or removed under the Twenty Fifth Amendment, then Joe Biden steps into the Oval Office and enters the 2016 primaries already being the President, an advantage that could easily sweep Hillary off to one side. If Biden replaces Obama more than half way through Obama's second term, then he is legally eligible to run for two terms on his own, taking him to 2024, by which time Hillary will be too old to run again.

So I think what is going on is that the Democrats who support Hillary are trying to protect Obama in order to protect her chances for 2016.

The Twenty Fifth Amendment & Barack Obama’s Mental Illness

What I have concluded from watching this administration and Congress through all their shenanigans is every person in Congress, the Obama administration and the alphabet agency department heads all have a mental disorder. The mental disorders vary, but it is evident in their very actions these people epitomize the phrase, "the patients are running the asylum."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have another theory.

During his first term, Obama was reported to suffer from depression. What does a doctor do when someone says they are depressed? They write a prescription for anti-depressants! Along with the well-known tendency for these drugs to trigger paranoia and violence, they generally cloud your thinking as well. If Obama's advisers follow the current American trend, then roughly 20% of them are also on these medications. Given that the White House is a high-stress environment, it would be reasonable to presume the percentage of staffers on these mind-altering medications may be much higher. This goes a long way towards explaining the poor quality decision making coming out of the government. Benghazi. Bergdahl. The launch of the Obamacare website when it was clearly not ready. These indicate a White House making decisions based on what they want the world to be, rather than how it really is. And that is troubling behavior to see in the people with the keys to the nuclear missiles!

FLASHBACK - Vietnam MIAs: Ghosts Return to Haunt McCain and the US Press

The briefing took place in 1973, right before the final peace agreement between the US and Hanoi. What the Vietnamese general told the Russians was that his government was intent on getting war reparations, $3.25 billion in reconstruction money, pledged by the US in peace negotiations headed on the US side by Henry Kissinger. The general told the Russians that Hanoi would hold back a large number of POWs until the money arrived. It seems the Vietnamese had successfully used the same tactic with the French, to elicit promised funds, after which POWs were transferred.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama is on TV now, justifying his bypass of Congress to trade five Taliban officials from Guantanamo for Bergdahl, using as his justification the "sacred principle" that we do not leave anyone behind.

This is, of course, nonsense. The US abandoned 600 POWs in Vietnam to avoid paying $3.25 billion in war reparations.

This trade for Bergdahl was another desperate PR stunt by the White House to offset the VA scandal, and with Bergdahl's being revealed as a deserter and defector, has become a scandal in itself.

The Veterans Affairs scandal engulfing the Obama administration has spread into Kansas, Missouri, Illinois and Indiana, but only ABC's Good Morning America on Wednesday found time to cover the latest developments. GMA news reader Amy Robach revealed, "We're learning those secret waiting lists were also kept at ten facilities in these four Midwestern western states with nearly 100 veterans waiting more than three months for treatment." [See video below. MP3 audio here.]

Despite the eight hours of air time available to the three network morning shows, CBS and NBC avoided the story. ABC allowed 21 seconds. Obviously, the prisoner swap involving a U.S. soldier and five Taliban terrorists has rightly dominated the news. However, The four-hour-long Today show still found time to devote five minutes and 13 seconds on the subject of "six months to six pack" abs. CBS This Morning offered three minutes and 50 seconds to the phenomenon of "urban farming." Clearly, time was available.

Gold Star mom: 'This guy was worth my son's life?'

“It gets really hurtful when I think, this guy was worth my son’s life? My son who was patriotic? Who was a true soldier? Who defended his country with his life?” Andrews told Army Times via phone on Monday. “That guy was worth that? I don’t think so.”

Friend or foe?

Currently, according to the agreements made after World War II, 94 U.S. military bases are deployed in Japan which is about 47 thousand American soldiers and officers. And their main goal is "to provide security for Japan and maintain peace and stability in the Asia-Pacific region".

And two-thirds of all U.S. troops in Japan are deployed on a small island of Okinawa (34 U.S. military facilities, part of which were built in the city), which is less than 1% of whole Japan. Even a joke appeared among locals that "not U.S. bases are located on Okinawa, but Okinawa is located on U.S. military base". And behavior of U.S. militaries often causes resentment of local population and demands for withdrawal.

Fmr. Soldier: Military Told Unit to ‘Not Tell the Truth’ About Bergdahl

In an appearance on Fox & Friends on Wednesday, retired Army Spc. Josh Fuller, a soldier who served with Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl since 2008, said that the military informed him and other soldiers that the “narrative” they should maintain is that Bergdahl was captured by the Taliban rather than that he intentionally left his base.

War Meat

And there was President Obama, grinning and shaking hands. Our crowd seemed delighted and respectful, but not at all surprised. However, one guy spoke up kind of loudly: "I hear we're not having any more wars next year, Mr. President."

Obama turned on him, not unlike that predator drone turning toward us, and with a somewhat similar reaction. "That's all right," he said. "That's all right. Let me repeat a principle I put forward at the outset of my presidency. Let me be clear. The United States will use military force, unilaterally if necessary, when our core interests demand it -- when our people are threatened, when our livelihood is at stake, or when the security of our allies is in danger."

Oliver North: I Know A Ransom Of $5 6 Million Was Paid To Free Bergdahl

Obama Deploys ‘Sacred Rule’ To Justify Prisoner Swap

The U.S. has a “sacred rule” that it does not leave any prisoners behind in warfare, regardless of circumstances, President Barack Obama claimed in a June 3 press conference in Poland.

Tell that to all the Vietnam POWs abandoned when the US reneged on paying war reparations after the war was over.

Revealed: Bowe Bergdahl left letter telling comrades at Afghan base he was 'leaving to start new life and didn't want to fight for America' as Army announces he DOES face desertion charges

Bowe Bergdahl left a note saying he had gone to start a 'new life' and a former comrade broke his military gagging order today to tell MailOnline of the jaw-dropping moment he discovered the Taliban POW had walked off from their Afghanistan base.

The soldier, who requested anonymity as he is still in the military, said: ‘Everyone looked at me like I was crazy but I was right, he had walked off.’

The New York Times reported Bergdahl also left behind a note in which he said he did not want to fight for America any more, did not believe in the war - and was leaving to start a new life.

The revelation came as it emerged the Army may still pursue charges against Sgt Bergdahl for desertion.

We Now Know Why President Obama Traded Five Top Taliban For Bowe Bergdahl

Bowe Bergdahl would detail his disillusionment with the Afghanistan campaign in an e-mail to his parents three days before he went missing.

“I am sorry for everything here,” he wrote. “These people need help, yet what they get is the most conceited country in the world telling them that they are nothing and that they are stupid.”

Bergdahl also complained about fellow soldiers. The battalion commander was a “conceited old fool,” he said, and the only “decent” sergeants, planning to leave the platoon “as soon as they can,” told the privates — Bergdahl then among them — “to do the same.”

“I am ashamed to be an American. And the title of US soldier is just the lie of fools,” he concluded. “I am sorry for everything. The horror that is America is disgusting.”

His dad, who looks like a Taliban convert, responded to the email with this exhortation: “OBEY YOUR CONSCIENCE!” It appears he did.

US fears 'Pearl Harbor' in space

Former U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has repeatedly warned of a possible second "Pearl Harbor" recently, citing the country's huge vulnerability to cyberattacks by China.

In fact, China is now expanding its U.S. targets for cyberattacks, which have so far been primarily aimed at getting access to corporate secrets related to the nuclear, steel and other industries.

According to U.S. Congressional research, the control systems of multiple U.S. artificial satellites responsible for air traffic control and global positioning systems have suffered waves of cyberattacks that are believed to have originated in China.

Special forces located Bergdahl and his captors but wouldn’t risk rescue for ‘deserter’

The Pentagon on several occasions had ground-level intelligence on where ArmySgt. Bowe Bergdahl was being held captive at various times — down to how many gunmen were guarding him — but special operations commanders repeatedly shelved rescue missions because they didn’t want to risk casualties for a man they believed to be a “deserter,” sources familiar with the mission plans said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama's PR stunt has just exploded in his face, just like Benghazi!

Army to investigate desertion claims against Bergdahl: Gen. Martin Dempsey

Gen. Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said Tuesday the Army may still pursue an investigation into the conduct of Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was recently freed after nearly five years of being held captive in Afghanistan.

Gen. Dempsey told the Associated Press that U.S. military leaders “have been accused of looking away from misconduct” but said “it’s premature” to assume they would do so in Sgt. Bergdahl’s case.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like Obama's latest PR stunt is about to explode in his face, just like Benghazi!

White House Aides Define Obama Doctrine: ‘Don’t Do Stupid Sh*t’

Still trying to figure out what President Barack Obama’s foreign policy doctrine is? Search no more. The White House has got you covered.

“For those pining for an Obama Doctrine victory for the president, here it is: ‘Don’t Do Stupid Shit,’” Politico’s Mike Allen wrote in his daily tip sheet, the Politico Playbook, Saturday. “Playbook rarely prints a four-letter word — our nephews are loyal readers. But we are, in this case, because that is the precise phrase President Obama and his aides are using in their off-the-record chats with journalists.”

Washington Wants Maduro Dead

He's Venezuela's democratically elected president. It doesn't matter. Washington's dirty war continues.

It's done so since Chavez's December 1998 election. He became president in February 1999. He served until his March 5, 2013 death.

He survived Washington's April 2002 coup attempt. A 64-day 2002 - 03 general strike and oil management lockout.

A failed August 2004 national recall referendum. He was Washington's main hemispheric enemy. It wanted him ousted.

It wanted him dead. Obama killed him. Most likely by poison or cancer causing substances. Four major surgeries in 18 months couldn't save him.

He knew he was marked for death. He said so numerous times. So did Maduro, saying he "was poisoned by dark forces in order to hit at the Venezuelan people and Latin America."

Washington targets all independent nations for regime change. It wants subservient pro-Western governance replacing them.

Illinois Legislature Passes on $100M for Obama Library

On April 17, the Illinois legislature floated the idea of spending $100 million in Illinois tax dollars on an Obama Presidential library, despite that the President has made no decision on where his library will be. Almost immediately the idea drew criticism. Now, as the Illinois legislative session ends, the plan is stalled.

‘Threats and instigation’: China lashes out at US Defense Sec's remarks in Singapore

As US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel used a security forum in Singapore to criticize Chinese “intimidation” tactics in the South China Sea disputes, Beijing rebuked the US for its “completely non-constructive” comments “full of hegemony and threats.”

“Hagel’s speech was full of hegemony,” said Lt. Gen. Wang Guanzhong, as quoted by The Financial Times. “It was…filled with instigation, threat and intimidation, which wanted to incite the destabilizing factors of Asia-Pacific region to stir up disputes.”

Six Memorable Quotes From Edward Snowden's NBC Interview

"The Iraq war that I signed up for was launched on false premises. The American people were misled," Snowden said. "Now, whether that was due to bad faith or simply mistakes in intelligence, I can't say for sure. But I can say it shows the problem of putting too much faith in intelligence systems without debating them in public."

FLASHBACK - The Lie Factory

It's a crisp fall day in western Virginia, a hundred miles from Washington, D.C., and a breeze is rustling the red and gold leaves of the Shenandoah hills. On the weather-beaten wood porch of a ramshackle 90-year-old farmhouse, at the end of a winding dirt-and-gravel road, Lt. Colonel Karen Kwiatkowski is perched on a plastic chair, wearing shorts, a purple sweatshirt, and muddy sneakers. Two scrawny dogs and a lone cat are on the prowl, and the air is filled with swarms of ladybugs.

TRADITION NO LONGER SACRED IN THE HOLY LAND

One of many traditions that seemed to have gone astray is the handling of notes placed in the Western Wall by worshipers. Tradition has it that these notes are meant for God’s eyes ONLY ….

In fact, Based on the cherem of Rabbeinu Gershom which prohibits reading another person’s mail, it is halakhically forbidden for a Jew to read a note that has been inserted in the Western Wall.

BUT ...

In the case of a note left by Barack Obama, it was not only removed from the Wall, but it was made public.

He KNEW! Obama told of Veterans Affairs health care debacle as far back as 2008

The Obama administration received clear notice more than five years ago that VA medical facilities were reporting inaccurate waiting times and experiencing scheduling failures that threatened to deny veterans timely health care — problems that have turned into a growing scandal.

Veterans Affairs officials warned the Obama-Biden transition team in the weeks after the 2008 presidential election that the department shouldn’t trust the wait times that its facilities were reporting.

DOJ & DHS want to keep secret databases & drone documents from the public

The Justice Department plans to ask a federal appeals court to delete additional material from a drone-related legal opinion before it's made public—redactions that would go beyond those the court approved last month, a government lawyer said in a legal filing.

Last week, officials speaking on condititon of anonymity said the Obama Administration had decided not to appeal the pro-disclosure ruling from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit. Word of the decision to acquiesce in the the appeals court ruling and release the Office of Legal Counsel memo in redacted form came on the eve of a Senate vote on the confirmation of former DOJ official David Barron to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit. Indeed, word of the decision to make some of the legal opinion public may have helped clear the way for Barron's confirmation by the Senate, 53-45.
