Stop blaming the CIA for every Latin American nation that stops socialist dictators!

October 23, 2013

Sheesh! Like the below whowhatwhy posting. Most of it is true in my opinion, but it seems liberty-minded writers in the US are good at discerning factors on domestic policy but are just starting to keep up with the changes in foreign lands:

http://whowhatwhy.com/2013/10/21/monday-morning-skeptic-ny-times-buries-cia-facts-re-latin-american-deaths/

I agree with most of the article at the link, but there is a VERY important new development in Latin America especially with respect to US meddling and undercover operations around the world. That is, nobody noticed, but now, instead of supporting so-called misnomered “right-wing” coups, and never-ending re-“election” of anti-Communists, their intelligence apparatus has begun, together with the diplomatic corps, to prop up leftist caudillos like Hugo Chavez and his fellow fascists.

In Honduras, they supported the left-wing coup by Manuel Zelaya, who became dictator while the world was ignoring the country. Even though the Congress was elected by the same electorate as himself. It started much worse when he came back from the Caribbean-Central American presidential summit in Santo Domingo in November 2008 where George Soros was keynote speaker! Kid you not.

Not only did Zelaya refuse to obey anything legislated by Congress, he also disobeyed a long series of Supreme Court orders, and lots more. That’s a coup. That’s what they called it in Peru –an auto-coup– when President Fujimoro dissolved the Congress, after it was paralyzed by the terror from the Sendero Luminoso, so-called.

The American Ambassador was in the presidential mansion the night before Zelaya planned his phony “survey” that he was going to use to justify dissolving Congress. He was helping plan this auto-coup consolidation, why else was he there, and he lent his name and office in support to this another leftist coup by phony “election”.

This is one case that I know about. Accusations that the CIA supported ousting Zelaya are a laugh riot. Hondurans wanted to get rid of him so bad, they were marching in the streets regularly, protesting him and especially his plans to consolidate his dictatorship.

Nobody needed to convince the Hondurans over this at any level. And through it all, the military forces stayed strictly obedient to the civil authorities.

Meantime, CHAVEZ was the meddling imperialist in Honduras. He’s gone now, and his successor is trying to be another one. You can blame the CIA for a lot of things around the world, but not that one.

And also adding to the international intrigue, Jose Insulza, head guy at the OAS, used their resources to order support for Zelaya’s illegal and unconstitutional “survey”, a cover for fraud and the propaganda to justify his dictatorship.

Insulza pounded at Honduras to put the coup-running president back in. And remember, as a young political adviser to Openly Marxist Salvador Allende’s regime in Chile he played a part in wreaking havoc on that attempt to install a leftist dictatorship in the continent.

And in Chile, never mind that the Cubans were meddling and intervening, pouring agents in, and helping coordinate the importation of leftists from the entire continent, no doubt with logistical and other support from the tyrants in the Soviet Union. Government embeds in the Communist government also were stockpiling large warehouses full of weapons, preparing for confrontation, no doubt. They started calling for troops to mutiny.

But Congress and their people saw the economy in the pits. Nationalizing the copper mines only provided payout opportunities for political cronies. Accidents skyrocketed over Anaconda’s record, the mines began losing money instead of paying taxes, and the nationalization was like shooting yourself in the foot to spite your leg!

So the CIA may have been involved, but the military did not intervene until their Congress passed a resolution finally, demanding that the military brass do something to stop the runaway Communist dictator!

The USA is the biggest bully and interventionist in the world, for sure. But let us remember that socialism and fascism tends to  shoot itself in the foot by its nature, and that there is a significant and numerous part of the people in Latin America who want NOTHING to do with socialism.

Government “shut down” scary words for good thing: Shut down Obamacare!

OH yes, I didn’t finish that one thought. When our cousin’s business “shuts down”, it’s not there anymore. The federal government, unfortunately, won’t “shut down”. It will still get taxes coming in. If that’s not enough to pay the bills and service the criminal federal debt, it’s because Congress in times past took stuff on credit that some future Congress would have to pay, not themselves. First, that’s “taxation without [even] representation”.

Second, we the members of the people in the hinterland pay every time that debt ceiling goes up, through the devaluation of the dollar that comes with more dollars in the money supply, whether they be paper dollars or electronic dollars.

Third, since we all pay with the stuff we can no longer buy because of the devalued dollars, therefore all debt, all debt ceiling increases, in the fiat currency dollar, are “stealth” taxation on both the poor and the middle class.

Ron Paul used to expose the Fed Chairman on this fact every time. The “Ron Paul Channel” is up and running, by the way, and so is Ben Swann‘s channel. Recommended.

 

 

Week recap, “tinfoil” vindicated, blacks demanding Obama impeachment, Hillary skeletons, more…..

MANNING

So now the Army, or someone involved with the case, publicizes Manning’s “gender-confused” past. It reminded me of the scenes in Orwell’s 1984 when dissidents and the independent-thinking were trotted onto the tube all repentant of their sins against the state, and how they now loved Dear Leader.

 

JUDGE WANTS TO SUPPRESS FREE EXPRESSION TO PUNISH FREE EXPRESSION

Now a judge has said gays can file suit for a pastor’s speech overseas:
http://www.wnd.com/2013/08/judge-foreigners-can-sue-u-s-pastor-over-sermons/

PIPA, SOPA, CISPA, and they’re trying everything they can to create thought-crime laws and censorship. Funny, the judge is saying that maybe this pastor did try to “suppress free expression” by certain groups. So he’ll entertain a suit that demands he suppress the free expression of the defendant. Nobody said statists relied very much on logic.

 

FINALLY, THE GOVERNMENT CONFIRMS DECADES-OLD “TINFOIL HAT” CONSPIRACY THEORY

Yes, Area 51 actually exists! Now that everybody knows it anyway, the truth can finally be told.
http://www.wnd.com/2013/08/govt-confirms-area-51-exists/

Is anybody apologizing to the tinfoil hat crowd yet? Of course the CIA is saying it was for the training of pilots for the secret U-2 spy plane. Nothing else, I guess. Flights of secret aircraft in the sky, they are unidentified flying objects because the military brass refuses to identify them!

 

WILL THE STATIST MEDIA NOW ADMIT THEY EXIST?

Me, I’m beginning to realize that not all cultures are ready to accept living peacefully with their neighbors, or even thinking independently. It’s hard enough for Americans in the past to do this with their tradition of small-r “republic” and free speech and the Bill of Rights. I intentionally did not say “democracy”.

 

THE NATIONAL BLACK REPUBLICAN ASSOCIATION ARE CALLING FOR OBAMA’S IMPEACHMENT
http://www.wnd.com/2013/08/black-republicans-call-for-obama-impeachment/

The NBRA (see their web site here) has posted a list of 10 articles of impeachment against Barack Obama, which you can see here:
http://blackrepublican.blogspot.com/2013/08/black-american-citizens-file-articles.html

 

 

OBAMA: WHAT ELSE WOULD AMERICANS SAY, MR. PRESIDENT?

Mr. “kill list” Obama says:

“I am comfortable that the program currently is not being abused. I’m comfortable that if the American people examined exactly what was taking place, how it was being used, what the safeguards were, that they would say, you know what, these folks are following the law and doing what they say they’re doing.”

Yeah, what else would they say, Mr. President? Your NSA now has the dirt on everybody. Now, they get to say, after the heavy chasing after reporters, confiscation of all the communications of all the citizens, brazenly searching through the emails of a hundred AP reporters, kill lists, drones… Who is going to dare you to come after them by blowing the whistle on you now? Another hero like Edward Snowden? We can only hope. Happens in the movies all the time, after all.

This makes Hillary’s Filegate scandal look like respect for the Constitution. Right. (Filegate refers to Hillary getting the FBI files on every member of Congress, yes, every one of them). But now, the feds (who’s running the show up there anyhow?) has the goods on ALL of us.

Hey, maybe there’ll be blowback like there was against Robespierre. The people in Congress may just wake up one day when they realize that going along with the program and taking them money is not going to save their behinds or their family’s either, and do something to force them to admit out loud that their real goal is to just make all their subjects bow down and obey.

Obama also said if Snowden thinks he is right he should come back and face justice and prove his case. Right. Yeah, right. Well now. We live in a country where any judge in the country could get a self-written warrant produced by a federal agent on the spot, one of those Patriot Act orders that makes it a felony for said judge to tell anybody about it.

Like the alien said to the Steve Guttenberg character in the movie Cocoon, “You don’t know who to trust.”

Yeah.

These are things people have lost their kids over, and for the milk thing gone to prison over. Already. In America.

 

3-D IS ACCELERATING THE DESIGN PROCESS FOR NEW AUTO MODELS:
See the story here:

http://individual.troweprice.com/public/Retail/Planning-&-Research/Connections/3D-Printing/Is-3D-Printing-Road-Ready?PlacementGUID=EA219823-0606-4B28-A1C9-7DC89A3AC248

The article says they still aren’t good enough to “print” a whole vehicle, or all the pars to it:

This capability has sparked talk of “printed” cars, and while printing your ride might be an interesting demonstration of the technology’s maturity, it wouldn’t result in a car many people would want to drive. According to Lee Dockstader, vice president of business development for 3D Systems, the ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) plastic body parts that can be printed would likely be non-structural items like fenders, hoods, trunk lids, and door skins, as opposed to frame rails, floor pans, and other components that need to be crash-absorbent. Furthermore, printed cars would be stylistically limited, because printed ABS plastic doesn’t allow for distinctive feature details like creases and lines.

But in another article I recently saw, metals have already been used with one 3D machine:

The Next Level of 3D printing. ” Researchers at North Carolina State University took the technology one step further with the discovery of a method for printing liquid metal (watch above)”:

REPUBLICAN PARTY BOSSES HAVE VOTED AGAINST LETTING CNN OR NBC HOST 2016 DEBATES

The story:
http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/aug/16/rnc-vote-boycott-cnn-nbc-clinton

Well, bully for them. Looks like CNN and NBC saw what was happening in the real world and that their obvious tilt toward “the left” was not helping anymore.

And Hillary “screwed the pooch” as the expression goes, with her role in Benghazi-gate, heading up the team that left Americans exposed there and then joined the push to lie to the public about a video. She had to know that the narrative was false. Looks like it was some low-level CIA analyst that contributed the false “video” blame, but the CIA quashed it lightning fast, but then the order came from –who??!– to put it back in. What is pretty clear is that the order came back to the CIA to blame the video anyway.

But there’s more than Bengazi waiting for a Hillary campaign. There’s Filegate (illegal suborning of FBI files ON Congressmen and other perceived adversaries), Whitewater, Travelgate, Chinagate, Vince Foster, the insider trading accusation on her commodities market killing, the push to shut up Juanita Broaderick, the mysterious missing Rose Law firm documents she could not find to answer a subpoena, “Hillary-care” (which was even more a blatant in-your-face nationalization of medical practice),

So maybe the cover story didn’t originate there anyway. Sometimes it helps to play a modified version of “Follow the Money”.

NBC says there’s no problem because NBC News is independent from NBC Entertainment. Oh yeah, right! And they both report to whom? They’re always saying there’s no bias, but who does the NBC News staff vote for?

http://www.journalism.org/node/2304

To read a bit more detail about a few of those scandals, click here. Yeah, email-gate too, which should have also fallen under “obstruction of justice”.

I agree with Larry Klayman, her outburst at getting exposed for her own negligence and complicity with the attacks in Benghazi, when testifying before Congress, finally gave the public a slight glimpse of her character and demeanor that Washington insiders see and tell about.

She was madder than hell that anybody would want to know how and why Benghazi happened.

 

ROBERT DRAPER DOES GOOD COVER-UP ON LIBYA AS GUEST ON C-SPAN:

He interviewed with Libby Casey on C-Span, and I listened for most of it, and it begs for an answer and some corrections:
http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/HistoryofL
His answer to two callers who called him on his anti-Gaddafi tilt in his assessment of the rebellion and the rebels was that, as he says it, his reporting is based on what Libyans think. To that, I say “So what?” That’s what Walter Duranty said when he was asked why his New York Times reporting about Stalin was so glowing. Of course now we know there was no way he could have avoided knowing about all the atrocities. Just the murders of all his fellow comrades on the ruling committee with Lenin should have been a clue.

Today, of course, the New York Times does not talk about that.

A good study on mass propaganda is the media coverage on Libya and especially Gaddafi and the recent American-led and American-financed overthrow and murder of this irritant to world hegemony everywhere and danger number one of international central bankers with his plan for a pan-African gold-backed currency. Ukrainians are demanding that the pro-Stalin NYT reporter be stripped of his Pulitzer Prize. That’s another “prize” whose decision committees have dragged through the mud by trying to praise the worst of human animals among us who deserve no honoring at all.

Where are the antiwar protestors from the Vietnam War era on this? Well, many of us are still around. Some of us, like me,are still today against all these American wars, but many are now very silent with this kind of atrocity. American rulers are now using not only other peoples’ money (ours) to finance these illegal wars, but now, it’s also other nations people to do the dirty work.

One really big lie was what he told about Towarga. That was where the anti-Gaddafi rebels (now in power in Libya) totally wiped out an entire town of black folks, population 10,000. They were such determined Gaddafi loyalists and refused to join or support the rebellion and fought the takeover. But this deceitful reporter says he spoke with rebels from nearby Misratha, and of course they told him all kinds of bad things the Towargans did against the rebels. This turns out to be what a European reporter had said about what the rebels did to the Tawargans.

He says it’s because of what Gaddafi had promised the Tawargans they did these things, but wait a minute, he promised good things to everybody who would fight on his side.

Maybe there’s a good explanation for why he thinks the way he does. There are no more Tawargans left. Some few survivors might be too afraid to venture outside certain camps where they are kept.

Tawarga is a testament to what even this reporter admitted was among the good things he had to say about Gaddafi. He treated blacks better than any of the other Arab or Muslim leaders. He treated women magnificently, they were treated as equals in his government. This Robert Draper acknowledged this when a caller demanded whether he thought anything Gaddafi had done was good.

What he did leave out was that Gaddafi had stood before the Libyan parliament and had actually repented for his supporting of terrorism previous, and renouncing it for good, and demanding that Israel and Palestine make peace, and then invited the Western nations to come and take away all his nuclear weapons.

Let’s see YOU do that. Will Obama renounce clones, or the financing of hits on enemies or stop spying on Americans?

Here you’ll find a better report on what happened to Tamarga, and in fact, what is happening to blacks all across Libya:
http://news.antiwar.com/2011/09/13/disappeared-thousands-of-libyan-blacks-turn-up-missing-in-rebel-offensives/

Sure enough, if he would have spoken to some of the Tawargan survivors of the “cleansing” (their word) that the rebels had done, he would have gotten a different story.

But then again, maybe he did talk to some of them and isn’t telling.

Tawargans are demanding that NATO and the West is to blame for their plight and that they should therefore provide protection from them. Won’t hold my breath. Now wonder some Muslims think the West is waging another Crusade. Only the warmongers among us that do the sending are not Christians.

 

KLAYMAN’S CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS AGAINST THE NSA AND THEIR BOSSES IN WASHINGTON
http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/klayman/130617
From the web page:

While James Rosen and Fox News did nothing wrong in reporting on North Korea, Obama and Biden both committed actual crimes in releasing classified information that resulted in the death of 22 SEAL Team 6 special ops forces and harmed U.S.-Israeli military operations and war plans concerning Iran. For this they both should be tried, convicted and thrown in prison.

Klayman has an interesting perspective on what he calls “Obama’s Mein Kampf”, meaning Obama’s press conference where he tried to spin around the Massive Surveillance State:
http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/klayman/130814

None of that “See nothing, hear nothing, know nothing” stuff. In Washington it’s “Total Information Awareness” (search it): “See everything, hear everything, know everything”.

Dig this bit:

Ironically though, by raising the defenses of “phony scandals” and his alleged attempts to reform “intelligence” gathering by the NSA, and create more so-called safeguards for the American people, Obama underscores the hard reality that he has been using and intends to continue using our intelligence services to obtain information to coerce and blackmail the citizenry into pliant submission.

Indeed, during the Clinton years, while Bill and Hillary vociferously disclaimed any role in the deaths of more than 80 key witnesses and others with some involvement in their myriad of scandals, they were happy to have their henchmen leave a list of these dead persons on the office chairs of inconveniently “alive” witnesses like Linda Tripp and other White House whistleblowers, who had the goods on their various crimes. On a smaller scale than Obama’s unbridled massive abuse of government power, this was a not-too-subtle attempt to intimidate and silence them from spilling the beans and providing evidence to send the Clintons to prison, which is where they belong. Outrageously, today, 13 years since the Clintons left the White House, we, the more than 300 million Americans whose confidential communications have been violated by this Muslim megalomaniac, are now the hands-on witnesses of Obama’s attempt to rule and transform the nation as he alone sees fit – by fear. And, we, the American people, are in danger.

But despite last Friday’s dog-and-pony show, We the People increasingly can no longer be fooled.

A growing number of patriots – white and black – people of faith, Christians, Jews and concerned citizens are in the process of waking up from their long slumber of the last five years in particular. We are no longer willing to be made to feel ashamed of our heritage and who we are and are thus losing our sense of guilt that Obama and his ilk have tried to instill upon us, and are preparing to legally fight back.

Ron Paul, Military Spending and Wars, the Fed, and Israel

July 9, 2013
Ron Paul, member of the United States House of...

Ron Paul, member of the United States House of Representatives from Texas. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

How often do lies and deceitful spin from Old Media get repeated before the Truth overcomes it?

Ron Paul voted consistently NO whenever he thought a bill was unconstitutional. The problem was that Congress almost NEVER offers a constitutional bill anymore. 30 years of no compromise with Crony Capitalism, no payoffs, straight up. Incorruptible. The ONLY one for 30 years. What more do we want?

Anything less IS compromise. And with the self-enforcing culture of corruption in Congress, forget persuading them! And he convinced the people that matter. For his efforts, the ideological yoke of socialist lies over the youth of America has been broken and they have joined on to the new Liberty Revolution, it’s a Love Revolution, steps toward a consciousness of Golden Rule society, freedom.

Would that the entire Congress would have voted, No, No, HELL NO!!! all those times he did. NO WE WILL NOT RAISE THE STUPID DEBT CEILING AGAIN, NO WE WILL NOT LET YOU WAGE AN UNDECLARED WAR, NO WE WILL NOT LET THE FEDERAL RESERVE CONTINUE LOOTING OUR POCKETS!!!! **** !*##%$#$

The military interventions overseas have yielded ZERO benefits for the USA and ZERO benefits for the victims of those interventions. Contrary to the Lying Sniveling Hissing Old Media, Ron Paul did NOT want to completely dismantle the military, and he even wanted to keep some nuclear submarines going I believe.

Isolationist? Snort! Another lie! Commerce with all nations, entanglements with none. It worked the first 150 of our years, and drove the Industrial Revolution here and with a domestic free market allowed the USA to become the biggest economy of the world.

ISRAEL? The US gives FOUR TIMES as much foreign aid to Israel’s enemies than it does to Israel. Ending ALL of it would be a favor to Israel. The USA has only been a ball and chain holding Israel back. Set them free! (Google Settlers of Samaria and Israel)

And we need more people yelling about the root of the problems, like the Federal Reserve money changers, fiat currency, endless unconstitutional war making, the new declaration by the Obama administration that they now only get war-making orders and permission from the UN not the American people, and the outrageous NSA spying, the criminal presidential kill orders! Compromise for 100 years has NOT worked! Never worked! Time to put backbone to conviction and yell the truth from the treetops!

NSA Whistleblower: NSA Spying On – and Blackmailing – Top Government Officials and Military Officers | Washington’s Blog:

Whistleblower Says Spy Agency Targeting Top American Leaders

 

NSA whistleblower Russel Tice – a key source in the 2005 New York Times report that blew the lid off the Bush administration’s use of warrantless wiretapping – told Peter B. Collins on Boiling Frogs Post (the website of FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds):

 

Tice: Okay. They went after–and I know this because I had my hands literally on the paperwork for these sort of things–they went after high-ranking military officers; they went after members of Congress, both Senate and the House, especially on the intelligence committees and on the armed services committees and some of the–and judicial. But they went after other ones, too. They went after lawyers and law firms. All kinds of–heaps of lawyers and law firms. They went after judges. One of the judges is now sitting on the Supreme Court that I had his wiretap information in my hand. Two are former FISA court judges. They went after State Department officials. They went after people in the executive service that were part of the White House–their own people. They went after antiwar groups. They went after U.S. international–U.S. companies that that do international business, you know, business around the world. They went after U.S. banking firms and financial firms that do international business. They went after NGOs that–like the Red Cross, people like that that go overseas and do humanitarian work. They went after a few antiwar civil rights groups. So, you know, don’t tell me that there’s no abuse, because I’ve had this stuff in my hand and looked at it. And in some cases, I literally was involved in the technology that was going after this stuff. And you know, when I said to [former MSNBC show host Keith] Olbermann, I said, my particular thing is high tech and you know, what’s going on is the other thing, which is the dragnet. The dragnet is what Mark Klein is talking about, the terrestrial dragnet. Well my specialty is outer space. I deal with satellites, and everything that goes in and out of space. I did my spying via space. So that’s how I found out about this.

Collins: Now Russ, the targeting of the people that you just mentioned, top military leaders, members of Congress, intelligence community leaders and the–oh, I’m sorry, it was intelligence committees, let me correct that–not intelligence community, and then executive branch appointees. This creates the basis, and the potential for massive blackmail.

Tice: Absolutely! And remember we talked about that before, that I was worried that the intelligence community now has sway over what is going on. Now here’s the big one. I haven’t given you any names. This was is summer of 2004. One of the papers that I held in my hand was to wiretap a bunch of numbers associated with, with a 40-something-year-old wannabe senator from Illinois. You wouldn’t happen to know where that guy lives right now, would you? It’s a big white house in Washington, DC. That’s who they went after. And that’s the president of the United States now.

 

 

Aide involved in Benghazi talking points scrubbing promoted by Obama – Washington Times

May 26, 2013

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/may/24/obama-promotes-aide-benghazi-talking-points-scrub/

Never mind having bombed and invaded Libya with the airs of an absolute monarch, never mind Obama‘s Defense Minister telling Congressmen to their faces that the administration goes to war when it wants to and does not even have any obligation to even tell Congress about it. Never mind that the United States government under Obama took out a cooperative government that it had praised for giving up its nuclear weapons program with help from the West, and for renouncing terrorism, and for helping fight terrorism –even catching some of them for the West.

Never mind all that. None of it matters. And until recently, the usual big-government political and media cheering sections acted like even lying big-time to the American people and to Congress about what happened when blowback came home to roost in Benghazi, apparently just to win an election, did not matter. And also, they have acted like it is beneath them to ask what military commander issued the order to the Marines in Tripoli to stand down and let the Americans in Benghazi die.

Well, there is a section in the News industry that is worried about leaving Americans at risk in one of the most dangerous places for them overseas, so they could yell at Congress about budgets.

Yeah, you’ve heard about the Sequester, which is an INCREASE in budgets from the year before. That’s why they have to give you worse service when you call the IRS, that’s why they had to disrupt airline schedules, oh sure. Because they only got an INCREASE over the previous year in the money they had for these things. What government department lets even one year go by without asking for more money? More! More! More! If you don’t give us more, it will be bad! An asteroid will wipe us out! More money! they cry.

Well, who knows? “What’s the difference”?

The difference is that the one who campaigned for the presidency in 2012 with an ad featuring a call at 3:00 AM, bungled that nighttime call so badly she may have been cheated out of a 2016 presidential victory. The irony may be that her consolation prize from 2012 (the cabinet office she got) may have become a ball and chain that drags her to the bottom of the lake of political embarrassment. And that she may take the fall for the actions and inactions of her own boss. Maybe.

Anyway, Ron Paul is right. The scandal now known as Benghazi-gate is a distraction from the bigger issue of the crimes committed in waging an unconstitutional and illegal war in Libya at the expense of many lives, including Americans, of whom we now have four very famous casualties. And oh yeah, muzzles on the mouths of people who survived the actual attacks in Benghazi. And a Libyan government that the United States installed in Libya that now despises the American government because the Obama administration called him a liar in their campaign statements to the Media.

America in decline, only God can save her now, but she is not calling out to him.

Isaiah 1:18
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.

The Crusades, Terrorism and the Middle East

April 28, 2013

The Crusades were an effort to take BACK by force that which had been taken by FORCE by Islamic conquest.
Wars are brutal and what’s missed in that is (1) the Crusades were opposed by many Christians of the day, including (2) St. Francis of Assisi, who brokered a peace between the two sides on one occasion.

The Inquisition was run by a *political* hierarchy that used the name of Christ for cover, just as today in the West the most vile of corrupt rulers use “democracy” as a cover, and a tyrannical Hugo Chavez used “majority vote” –and even God– as a cover (never mind the fraud).

How can anybody call the Inquisition period a “Christian” thing when a central issue was to BAN THE BIBLE AND BURN ITS ADVOCATES as witches? An identity thief can call himself anything. Kris Kringle or Santa Clause by any other lying name, no matter how much you paint lipstick on that pig.

Recently one Anders Behring Breivik shot 77 peaceful –and unarmed– campers dead in Norway (the first one was the only one armed security man) had advocated “Christian” culture on his web site. As soon as they saw the word “Christian”, CNN ran a feed at the bottom of the screen for hours on end, days, that said “Christian fundamentalist” — a criminally negligent and slanderous accusation against a great number of peaceful Christian fundamentalists. Because on the same web site where they got the word “Christian”, the shooter said that he did NOT believe the Bible and he did NOT believe in Jesus. CNN shows itself again to be “fundamentally” bigoted against the name of Jesus Christ.

It is also a sign of truncated thinking and anti-Christ bigotry to equate Christian and Islamic holy books or actions. Even militant Islamists –as they are painted in the Western media image of them–are no doubt offended at this irrational equivalency-by-monotonous-repetition equivalency meme. Atheists who do not have the need to invent such contortions, are appalled by this too. The worst horrors of history were done by officially and enforced atheist regimes that banned all religious faiths from any public expression.

In one of them, both the central figure (Christ) laid down his life to the death for unbelievers at the beginning, and millions of his followers have done the same since. In the other, the founding figure laid down the lives of unbelievers at the beginning, and 100s of thousands, maybe millions, of his followers have done the same thing since.

Most Muslims want to live in peace, and support their families. I have cultivated close friendship with Muslim co-workers, and we have talked about the principles of our faiths without even raising our voices. Many Muslims risk beheading for accepting Jesus Christ as risen Savior and many Christians risk beheading in many parts of the world for being Christians.

“Terrorism” is a very broad category of tactics used by small groups to leverage such tactics where the proponent is otherwise weak in power.We see the “blowback principle” take effect when the people targeted by such actions become enraged.

The unconstitutional undeclared “war against terrorism” was a Newspeak tactic to propel the U.S.A. and the world into a permanent state of war. All the easier to take away the “freedoms” that “they” supposedly hate us for. It all too easily expands into asking the subjects of the rulers to tell authorities about anybody who “hates the government”. We have seen this movie before.

Michael Scherer said it well, something like, They’re not over here because we’re free to enjoy a few beers at night, they don’t like us bombing and invading them. Nobody can accuse Mr. Scherer of gullibility. He was the head of the team that sought Osama bin Laden all those years and set it up for the next team to find him. I doubt he is portrayed in the Hollywood movie about the search.

He has explained many times in media interviews the established principle of “blowback”, a term often used within the CIA for such a phenomenon, where your actions have reactions. This is *NOT* a “blaming America” thing.

Who decided to bomb and invade over there? Was there ever any debate in Congress, as constitutionally required in the U.S., about a declaration of war? Was it “America”, or was it America’s rulers?

Was there ever a debate in Congress over whether to declare war on Libya? Or did America’s *rulers” decide to send in military force (Special Forces) on the ground while denying it? When the “rebels” began losing, who decided to bomb the crap out of Libyan government forces?

There were lots of talking heads that declared Gaddafi was murdering civilians. But the best evidence of massacre of civilians are the pictures of the town that is no more, obliterated, its inhabitants wiped out and “cleansed”, that the entire town of Tawarga.

It’s not that the murderers who perpetrated this racist atrocity hid anything. They bragged about it, they bragged that they were not going to let it rebuild, they bragged about wiping out the 10,000 black-skinned Africans who built it up. Towarga burning:

The world this week and the weeks to come

March 3, 2013

Race-based district maps: How are they not racial discrimination? How is the devastation of the inner city caused by their elected Democrat Party leaders, how is that not bad for citizens who just happen to have darker skin? What do miserably poor whites have to do with hurting blacks historically?

Rights are for individuals, not groups. A lynching is bad not because of somebody’s race but because the victim is a HUMAN BEING, a member of the ONLY ONE RACE, that is the HUMAN race.

Ronald Reagan was not perfect, in fact I suspect there was a very dark side to him that many “conservatives” fail to consider, but he did expose a lot that was wrong in DC, like one great truism when he said:

The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’

That’s what the recent flaps in the government-media complex remind me of. All this “help” the federal government has given our darker-skinned neighbors, how’s that workin’ out for ya? Their families are much more broken up, so many fatherless children that even Bill Cosby is appalled, clergymen begging for all the killing to stop, more black-on-black crime than ever.

Now it’s fifty years after the legislation passed that requires southern states to ask the federal government (courts) for permission to make its changes to districts that change with population. Back then, the states began implementing race-based districting, for the purpose of ending racial discrimination. Read that again.

But it still doesn’t do much for the smallest minorities, I suspect, even in areas where they have enough numbers to make a difference in an area’s voting patterns.

+===================================================+

Came across this yahoo story about a mother’s fight to get access to her late son’s Facebook page.

http://news.yahoo.com/death-facebook-photos-could-fade-away-forever-085129756–finance.html

I have some mixed feelings about it. Not so many years agone, utility companies would accommodate spouses of the people whose names were on the account. I don’t know if it held for bank accounts, but now the Internet is a new thing. Some sons and daughters and spouses don’t always want mothers or fathers or mates having access to what they do on-line, so Internet companies do have some actual basis in their opposition to opening up such data to relatives in the case of death.

So there is legal limbo where “virtual property” lives after its “virtual owners” pass on.

+===================================================+

Well, here comes another very nasty stinging surprise from the law nobody was allowed to read till they pass it:
http://thehill.com/blogs/regwatch/healthcare/285691-obama-administration-rolls-out-dreaded-healthcare-rule

If Congress had ANY integrity at all, they would require themselves to read every bill themselves before they vote on it. Better still, certify that they had read it, specifically.

Hey, how about asking them ALL to do what Justin Amash does. For every single vote he casts in Congress, he posts an explanation on-line where the public, including of course the voters in his own district, can see them. Now THAT would be a good step for the rest of them…

Some of the congressmen that voted for the unconstitutional Obamacare law are still trying to tell us that this fee is a companion to other legislation that they say will bring insurance costs down by increasing competition.

In what convoluted Alice in Wonderland world does this lack-of-logic work? In the real world, health insurance costs to businesses and people have been shooting upward with no end in sight. It’s so bad that low-wage earners in your family –if you are not a millionaire like Rep. Nancy Pelosi-D and Senator Harry Reid-D, that is– those low-wage earners are earning less because their hours have been cut to the legal part-time threshold.

How does that help poor people? Oh, they tell us, never fear, they’re going to TAKE the money from the employers of those low-wage earners in “increased revenues” (“revenues” is Doublespeak language for “taxes”, and “taxes” is Doublespeak for taking your money by force). That will show them, except the employers will have even less money left over to pay to the employee.

Thanks a lot for nothing, as the saying goes.

+===================================================+

Tariff wars put the Great Depression of the 1930s into high gear acceleration and economies into deceleration:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/china-business/9904512/China-fully-prepared-for-currency-war.html

China says it’s “full prepared” for a currency war, after Japan’s Prime Minister said he is determined to force devaluation of the yen to boost exports.

This helps illustrate the problem with political control of currencies. Without government price-fixing, resources would get allocation to production in the way that is of most optimal value to the optimum number of people, as determined by actual demand.

+===================================================+

A woman saved from a burglar by the hand of God, she says:
http://www.komonews.com/news/local/Seattle-woman-believes-God-saved-her-from-burglar-194299371.html

She was deep in prayer but yelled “Lord help me” after the man grabbed her hair. The man fell backward at that and hit his head on the fridge, and stumbled out disoriented and escaped in the getaway car waiting for him.

This reminded me of an incident told to me by a friend in missions who had lived in a property lent to the work in one of the worst areas of Chicago. A very, very big man once came literally crashing through the front door and began shouting and wreaking general havoc throughout this apartment.

My colleague sent his partner to call the police while he followed the troublemaker, who went room by room until he found the kitchen and stuffed a lot of the food into his mouth.

Then he turned his attention on my friend, backed him to the wall, and started choking him. My colleague shot up a silent prayer commanding God to stop this man. Whereupon the man’s head snapped back from the body as if from a blow that came out of thin air. It was a knockout blow that left him on the floor. The police and paramedics only had to put him on a stretcher and carry him out.

Then there is my own experiences. In one, a gang came to our community home in a three-story house in St. Louis, my home town, with the intention of doing us great bodily harm when their gang leader gave the signal.

Well, before they could get to the signal, the “shepherdess” had pulled out her guitar and poured out her heart to these tough guys, and they began whispered conversations in the stairway.

They told us that they had decided we were just “too sweet” and they couldn’t do anything to us. When we broke up to converse personally, some of them prayed with us to receive Jesus.

In Cincinnati, there was a gang, a very big gang, that followed our group when we began walking back home from a college campus we often went to in our “witnessing”. They threw down one of our group to the ground, when a “sister” who was underage but visited yelled out at her loudest voice, “I rebuke you in Jesus name!!” At that one of the leaders pulled the others away and yelled at them to leave us alone, because he knew us, and we were “with God”.

It turned out he had met us in another witnessing trip to a park the previous weekend.

+===================================================+

Wow, here goes a very interesting take on the Papal resignation:
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2287074/Pope-resigns-2013-Gay-sex-rings-The-Filth-corrupting-Vatican–Pope-REALLY-quit.html

The article noted that the “resignation” we are hearing about of six hundred years agone now, was not really a “resignation” but he was forced out when the cardinals decided having three popes, even if each of them had some significant claim to clerical and “secular” support, was too many. The “resignation” was a promise by the “resigning pope” so he could get to claim his place in the historical succession by convening the conclave to elect the next pope (“none of the above” three) and then officially resigning.

All of this just shows the political nature of this office. The international Roman Catholic Church controls a LOT of resources, a LOT of money, and a lot of people, and this always invites corruption.

As to the pedophile scandal rocking the church, and the reference by some lay Catholics and former priests recently who said the only one who could begin to clean house and clean up the reputation (such as is possible) was Pope Benedict himself, by taking some actions and resigning.

It reminded me of something from accounts of Martin Luther’s own trip to Rome before his “99 Theses”.

At the time priests jokingly laid claim to piety by saying they only engaged in dalliances with the opposite sex.

+===================================================+

An increasing number of people are giving up their United States citizenship because of the grievous and complicated tax rules. The United States imposes the same taxes on citizens living overseas as it does on those who stay inside the borders.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/expat/9904314/Americans-renouncing-citizenship-to-become-British-thanks-to-tax-rise.html

They make some accommodation by law for equivalent-category taxes paid to other governments, but this adds to the paperwork. It also has the effect of making some expatriates at least theoretically responsible for paying even more than they heavy levies of the America taxes.

+===================================================+

The Republicans have not been better than Democrats in respecting human rights or in the warmongering, but in general it seems like the publishing organs of the government-media complex feel obligated to make subtle tilts in favor of the Dem Party (along with the not-so-subtle) in their coverage just to make it even. The Repugnant Party has to live with a handicap to make it fair for the Dumb Party.

I thought I would just mention this one time I came across another examples, the principles in the Connecticut Congress involved in a lewd sexually suggestive joke by the deputy speaker of the state House were identified by name but not party affiliation. But comments condemning the remarks and demanding an apology by another member of their House was quoted with his party affiliation identified.
http://www.ctpost.com/local/article/Politician-stripped-of-title-after-lewd-snake-4317889.php

The flap also shows how much today’s political environment is increasingly sensitive to the smallest slights. Harassment used to involve actual damage. Damage caused by words (where fraud is not involved) was not cause enough to destroy a person’s life or career. And especially when only ignorance or illiteracy was the real cause of the emotional “damage”, like when the use of the word “niggardly” was taken as a racial insult instead of what it really meant.

+===================================================+

The comments can sometimes be more interesting than the articles, like this next one about an Obama pardon for a man convicted of “violating the state’s gun law”:
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/mar/1/middle-gun-control-push-obama-pardons-man-weapon-c/?utm_source=RSS_Feed&utm_medium=RSS

The article does not state what the actual infraction consisted of, which would be helpful, but it still is a strange quirk in the middle of Obama’s promise to crack down hard on gun law violators and those who sell them to criminals. Presumably his definition of criminals would include those who possess guns he disapproves of. That would no doubt include all guns, since one of the things he’s pushing is a “universal background check”, and that would set up the first steps involved in the engineering of a one-stop place to make sure you are legal.

A lot of states already have big databases listing gun owners and their names and addresses. A way to access them all converts it to a national registry database.

+===================================================+

Not all aborticide “doctors” are this dirty in their clinics, but when state authorities raided his “Womens’ Society” abortion clinic expected to find a mere “pill mill”, the shocked officials immediately ordered this filthy abortuary shut down.

Now, the villain is preparing for trial for his heartless murder of eight newborn children who refused to die inside the womb and instead came out breathing. He is also charged with the murder (“manslaughter”) for the two mothers that died on the abortion table from the medical incompetence.

It shocked the state into realizing that hey, maybe abortion “clinics” are not automatically safe.

Many of us already knew it was a killing field for legalized infanticide.

Mothers:

Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.– Isaiah 55:7

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool.-Isaiah 1:18

+===================================================+

A shocking surprise awaits in the future for confused Christian Zionists:
http://www.wnd.com/2013/03/experts-reveal-how-israel-fits-into-todays-news/

They start off by lifting up talks by people who want to combat “the new anti-Semitism”, by which they mean anybody who questions anything the secular officially Jewish Israeli state does. Being officially Jewish, they are thereby officially anti-Christ, and thereby officially anti-God. And when they say, like the false prophets of Jeremiah’s time and like the Pharisees of Jesus’ day, that they “answer only to God”, they are following false prophets.

They hinge this thing on the promise to Abraham that God will bless those that bless his people and curse those that “curse thee”.

But God made clear even to Abraham that his descendants (according to the flesh) would fail and that God would have to cast them off. Here’s the verses they hang on:

And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.–Genesis 22:18
And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed;-Genesis 26:4

In the above-linked article, the writer also goes on to mention the “harbingers” of judgement as warnings against ancient Israel, as applied to the America of today.

My question is, why are they not applying those same harbingers to the modern state of Israel. And how can a wicked nation bless Israel, whether Israel of today is good or evil, or due for its own judgment?

As someone who believes in the Golden Rule as expressed by Jesus Christ himself, I totally oppose the abuses that many generations of Jews have received in the past. Dennis Prager points out that the systematic and worst abuses have never occurred in the USA like in Europe and elsewhere, but there have been slights. I pray that if Jews were ever being hunted down for being Jews that God would give me the grace to hide them.

I think they should have the same rights and treated equally as anyone. They have no special claim over mine or yours to Abrahamic promises. Same as everyone else, they demand equal treatment before God by refusing to recognize the claim that the Lord of the Manor has over them through his own son that he sent.

Let us see what God actually promised to the usurpers of the claim of the Lord over the manor, the usurpers that he had trusted with taking care of the manor. Note that the Pharisees had no problem at all perceiving that this parable was about them. It seems they may have had more spiritual discernment than today’s major so-called Christian leaders:

Matthew 21: 33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:

34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.

35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.

36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.

37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.

38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.

39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.

40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?

41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.

42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

45 And when the chief priests and Pharisees had heard his parables, they perceived that he spake of them.

46 But when they sought to lay hands on him, they feared the multitude, because they took him for a prophet.

God the Father told them in the Tanukh, and Jesus told them as quoted in the Gospels, that the kingdom of God would be taken from them and given to “a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof”.

Is the political nation of Israel of today “bringing forth the fruits thereof”?

By the way, is the Roman Catholic hierarchy “bringing forth the fruits thereof”?

+===================================================+

What do you think?

 

That’s a bunch of Malarky!

October 13, 2012

Fact checking the liars with “fact checkers” masks….

Like salon.com for example.  [satire:] Oh yeah, count on objective “fact” reporting from salon.com

*10:15 — Taxpayer funding for abortion:* Ryan says Democrats support taxpayer funding for abortion, pointing to Obamacare. That’s completely false . The bill never contained taxpayer funding for abortion, but it was nonetheless held up for months to appease pro-life Democratic Rep. Bart Stupak and the bloc that he lead.

It turns out that funds from that bill are right now funding abortions in some states, and dual-use abortifacients/contraceptives will be paid for by conscientious objectors by force and fine. No matter what your religious or secular conviction is,  you will not be able to buy an insurance plan that excludes “contraception”, and that includes the abortifacients with the misleading “contraception” label. The “morning-after” pill is an abortifacient. Since salon.com pretends they do not know this, how can one trust them?

Stephanapolous had to know something, the contraception question at his moderated debate came out of nowhere, another puff of smoke from the government-media complex, and what Disraeli said about how there are no accidents in politics.

Stupak was right before he caved, and wrong when he caved. What did Obama really say in that private meeting? Obama and Pelosi were already saying (lying) it wouldn’t cover abortions, they still plan to cover them, same as they plan to bring everything under the command-insurance G-control model (as they also said).

After all, as a guy who opposed effective penalties for letting a baby die after it is born, is Obama going to tell the truth?

And babies are still dying by the thousands daily, under the unconstitutional legal kill order known as Roe v Wade.

Biden played the dove on Syria last night, but BOTH of them kept war open as an option. Yes they did, two mealy-mouths. They all look like warmongers to me, and Obama has a track record that added not one, not two, but three new fronts to his list of wars to add to Bush’s two.

*10:10 — Troops in Libya:* Ryan said “nobody is considering sending troops to Syria.” In August, Gov. Romney told CBS News that he would send U.S. troops to Syria if necessary to prevent the spread of chemical weapons. In his interview with CBS, Romney said, “I think we have to also be ready to take whatever action is necessary to ensure that we do not have any kind of weapon of mass destruction falling into the hands of terrorists and whether that requires troops, or whether that requires other actions by our friends and allies.”

And both insinuate they might go to war against Iran. (If they decide it’s “necessary”). They all agree that Iran is a dire threat to the national security of the United States. Even worse, they say, it is a threat to Israel. I kid you not. In the tradition of Dave Berry, I am not making this up.

*10:00 — Small Navy? *Paul Ryan says Obama would reduce the Navy to its smallest size since World War I. Politifact gave that claim a Pants on Fire and called it ridiculous.

—
Moot because they’re both warmongers covering up by expected talking points. Ryan wants to increase the military and their presence everywhere, and Obama-Biden showed their true warrior colors with the war against the Libyans and threatening Syria and Iran.

*9:55 — Sequester two-step:* Ryan attacks Biden for automatic defense cuts that will go through if Congress does not act. Those cuts come from the “sequester,” the automatic trigger mechanism created by the congressional deal to raise the debt ceiling. You know who voted for that plan? Paul Ryan <http://thinkprogress.org/security/2012/09/09/816861/ryan-i-didnt-vote-for-the-defense-cuts-i-voted-for/>.

–
So advocated Biden, to push the debt ceiling can down the road some more, and this exposes what liars the “fact checkers” are. Everybody knows that was a “compromise” anyway and everybody wanted their own toys but they had to do “something” instead of doing the only sane thing (the Ron Paul plan) so it became automatic. What do you expect from a “thinkprogress” that wants us to throw us back to feudalism and calls it “progress”?

They had to give the Tea Party guys in the House some cover. After all, the American people put them there to stop the mad spending addiction.

Welfare-warfare is a false choice, a pox on both their houses. Neither of them have any right to complain about the others’ “lies”, they all drummed the only honest candidate out of this false choice. Which one? Seabiscuit or Secretariat? Cardinals or Giants? Difference is, these guys are asses pretending to be horses.

*9:45 — Social Security and Medicare are /not/ going broke:* “Social Security and Medicare are going bankrupt. These are indisputable facts,” Ryan says. Actually both are disputable and neither are facts. People have been saying Social Security is going to go bankrupt for decades, it hasn’t yet, and it’s not going to. It’s currently projected to be fine for at least 40 years

—-


Those freebies are designed to go broke, by which I mean the design is built to break. Even the marketing is Ponzi scheme, besides which, unfunded liabilities are up to over $70 trillion by most estimates of all such programs and the national debt keeps climbing and they’ll get squeezed out by the fall of the dollar if nothing else. It’s built on paper and ink and now electronic blips.

Anyway, not one Congress has any true moral authority to lay debt on people that had nothing to do with it. Why should a future Congress be obligated to pay for today’s Congress. Today’s Congress is paying for the sins of their colleagues in the past, but they’re paying for it by committing the same theft against future Congressmen. Except that we are paying now, because every time government spends money, they have to rob us to do it.

When they pay for it with taxes, they are directly robbing the people they confiscate from. When they pay for it with borrowing, they are robbing the poor and middle class with the inflation they’re causing, robbing value from our money. After they ditched the gold base, it’s easier to print the money.

Except the evil faction of the banksters took over the printing. Treasury doesn’t print it, they borrow it from the bankers at the Fed. The bankers just print the IOU’s (we owe them) that they lend to us and it costs them virtually nothing.

*9:40 — Ryan’s healthcare plan is bipartisan? *Ryan claimed that his Medicare proposal was co-sponsored by a Democrat. He was referring to Sen. Rod Wyden of Oregon, who did create a plan to change Medicare, but once Republicans adapted it, he distanced himself from the bill this summer <http://thehill.com/blogs/healthwatch/politics-elections/243387-wyden-downplays-medicare-plan-he-crafted-with-ryan>. In response to Romney’s continued claims on the campaign trail that the bill was bipartisan, Wyden told the Oregonian <http://www.oregonlive.com/mapes/index.ssf/2012/08/sen_wyden_says_romney_is.html> in August, “Bipartisanship requires that you not make up the facts. I did not ‘co-lead a piece of legislation.’”

So it WAS bipartisan, a plan created by a Democrat, who only backed off when the Republicans took ahold of it? So who was the bipartisan and who was not?

*9:35 — What about in your own district?* Ryan attacked Biden because the unemployment rate has gone up in his hometown of Scranton, Pa., under Obama and Biden. But the unemployment rate has gone up in Paul Ryan’s home district as well during his tenure in Congress. It was 3.8 percent when Ryan first took office in 1999 and was <http://www.alternet.org/election-2012/take-look-what-paul-ryan-did-his-own-congressional-district-and-be-very-scared-your> at 9.2 percent this August.

-

-
But Biden is VP and this is Obama’s economy.

*9: 30 — Paul Ryan requested stimulus money:…It’s also worth noting that Ryan supported the 2002 stimulus package

They all did, a pox on all their houses. Americans roared back with all the Tea Party demonstrations. Problem is this horse race and all the betting on it is distracting them.

*9:25 — Cars:* “Mitt Romney is a car guy,” Ryan says earnestly. Mitt Romney also wrote an Op-Ed for the New York Times titled “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt <http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/19/opinion/19romney.html>.”

—


Meaning, they should have let them go through the normal bankruptcy process instead of making it their political football and using it to brag about government robbing Peter to save Paul.

They SHOULD have left Detroit alone. Now it’s worse. Now we even have the “leftist” regime bragging about all the corporate welfare they give out to save the big corporations.

What a con job! It’s as good as the revisionist history that has the party of slavery and Jim Crow pretending to love all the poor colored folk!

*9:10 — Marines: *Paul Ryan, noting that there’s a Marine detachment at the U.S. Embassy in Paris asks, “Shouldn’t we have a Marine detachment?” in Libya. The infatuation with the Marines belies a deep misunderstanding of the role the service members play in foreign embassies. The Corps actually protects information <http://www.salon.com/2012/10/10/romney_to_shut_up_about_benghazi_victim/>, not personnel. And with only a little over 1,000 Marines serving as guards around the world, there are very few in any diplomatic post.

—
The infuation with the Marines and having them everywhere is the usual imperialist mentality. It’s as bad as the newfound supposed Obama infatuation with special forces to do all these jobs. The special forces did so good in Libya. And it’s baloney they “only protect information”, as if they will let a guy visiting a consulate start shooting at consulate personnel, no matter what a written code says.

*9:05 — Diplomatic security: *The debate opened up with a discussion of the attacks on U.S. diplomatic posts in Libya, with Paul Ryan attacking Biden for the Obama administration supposedly not doing enough to protect diplomats.

—
So this non-factual “fact checker” wants to check the facts so they can throw them in the trash and look for something else to talk about. They also didn’t “check the fact” that there was obviously information left inadequately protected (in their own terms), since CNN reporters just wandering around found writings by diplomats themselves…

This is about LIBYA and Bengazi-gate. Obama’s State Department is now caught red-handed intentionally exposing the consulate in Benghazi to attack. The Brits had pulled out.

After having considered Libya important enough to go to war against it, how can they justify either (1) REDUCING security after requests for MORE security, or (2) if they had inadequate funding, why did they not pull out. LIKE THE BRITS DID after an attack against their ambassador?

The ambassador’s killing follows an attack in June on the UK ambassador to Libya, Dominic Asquith. Two British bodyguards were injured after a rocket was fired at Asquith’s convoy in Benghazi, hitting his security escort. There have been similar attacks in Benghazi on the Red Cross and the UN. It is not clear why the US ambassador had returned to Benghazi at a time of security concerns.

On Wednesday the British embassy in Tripoli said that after the attack in June UK diplomats were pulled out of Benghazi. “Nobody is based there permanently. We have a villa there and an office, with staff traveling there from time to time,” it said. No British staff were injured during Tuesday’s attack on the US mission, it added.

And another thing.

I just saw that the ambassador was taken out by rockets in an ambush. So of course how could it not be a spontaneous mob reaction to a movie not even the Arabs heard about until the Obama gang blamed it for this?

The same link as above, from September 12, 2012:

The US ambassador in Libya and three other embassy staff were killed in a rocket attack after the diplomat’s car was targeted in the eastern city of Benghazi, it was confirmed on Wednesday.

I just clipped it from a comment somewhere now lost in surfing memory.

But Mike’s comment has a ton of truth to it.

I warned Mike and everybody else who (I presume) was posting in favor of Obama that they would get the same of all the things they hated with Bush, and likely more, including the corporatocracy elements.

Proven true now of course. Among those points, now history:

#1.Obama not only has kept the worst core elements of the Patriot Act, his administration has expanded them. O’s Injustice Department has expanded Bush’s self-written search warrants to mean they are outside the jurisdiction of any courts, nobody can question them, nobody can sue against them.

#2. Habeus corpus continues violated.

#3. Not only did he continue both wars that Bush started to this day, he fought another one in Libya, supporting the genocide there against the town of 10,000 black folks, he supported surrogates in others, and they are providing material support to another Muslim Brotherhood-al Qaeda takeover.

#4. Not only did he continue the Bush practice of waging war without a proper constitutional Declaration of War in Congress, he proceeded to tell Congress through subordinates that he did not even have the obligation to report to Congress a new war. (A war by any other name).

Note for the gullible: Pearl Harbor was, is still today in fact, properly considered so, an act of war, like U.S. bombings in Libya and in Serbia.

So he has continued the Bush wars and added a couple of his own. MEMO: 18,000 troops will stay in Iraq and that is not a withdrawal, and the embassy is the biggest in the world ever.

#5. He continued the practice of keeping the number of warrantless searches secret.

#6. Even before he was president, he pushed for TARP, which we find out poured trillions into private banks and overseas private banks and European banks, in a blatantly unconstitutional interference in the judicial branches, and not only that, refusing to prosecute an unknown number of actors in Wall Street that should have gone to prison in the first days of the Obama administration.

Instead, the administration brought in Wall Street associates of these criminals, and chief Wall Street criminal protector Geithner brought into the Cabinet itself (who was head of the New York branch of the Fed at the time and enabler of bonuses at AIG).

#7. He continued the Bush-era practice of hiring lobbyists into the administration, only more of it.

#8. He not only continued the practice of protecting the exploding federal debt burden, he outdid the Bush era practice by orders of magnitude. NOBODY “inherits” a deficit, though. A deficit is when you spend more money THIS year than your revenues THIS same year, so a deficit has NOTHING to do with last year.

#9. He has continued the Bush era practice of doing everything possible to stop any real fix to the oncoming debt tsunami and dollar crash.

#10. He made the executive presidency even more renegade by not only continued the presumed and denied practice by previous presidents of ordering killings, surrogates have now bragged about him deciding every day who will be killed, without arrest, warrant, habeus corpus, or a trial, including American citizens.

#11. O’s administration has expanded on the list of official bad guys for police and neighbors to suspect of terrorism, to add returning veterans, Ron Paul supporters, Constitution Party supporters, conspiracy theorists, and a few jihadist groups to make it look fair.

This year it leaked that they have added “liberty lovers” to this official “unofficial” enemies list.

#12. Bush doubled the size of Medicare with the pharmacy benefits, and Obama continued the practice of taking over this huge section of the private economy with the Unaffordable Health Care Act, and huge Medicaid expansion, but added a penalty/tax to compel participation for those who engage in breaking the law by doing absolutely nothing.

And got an unappealable judicial infinite taxation permit as a side benefit of lawsuits protesting this. (Maybe they should have gambled instead on overturning the FDR commerce clause over-reach but they didn’t)

#13. Obama continued the Bush precedent of appointing relatively unknown friends from the administration, Bush with Harriet Myers, Obama with not one but two: Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.

#14. Obama has endorsed the ACTA treaty, which is another the gift for Big Corporate to add to the change in patent law. You invented it first does not count anymore, the patent goes to the company that files first. Now we find that the US is negotiating another treaty that will hurt individuals at the expense of more restrictions, the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership).

#15. Obama has continued the Bush practice of acting like the increasing persecution of Christians around the world (as compared to other religions) does not exist, including the decimation and physical assaults on Christians in Iraq and Afghanistan where presumably it would have influence, and in Libya where the presidential regime allied with the mass murderers of Christian blacks.

#16. Obama continued the interventionist policies of Bush in Latin America after promising a new era in relations, although he did modify the policy by actively trying to a slight change, to bully the nations into accepting Communist dictators like Manuel Zelaya in Honduras.

#17. THE DIFFERENCE from Bush. The one visible difference (you have to look under the covers to see it) is the Cloward-Piven difference. That idea is to demand that the government fill ALL its promises and pay everybody their due and make them spend enough to bankrupt it.

Discover the Networks says it better. Remember that Cloward and Piven wanted a full-blown socialist society on the Marxist model, overtly and explicitly:

The Cloward-Piven Strategy
By Richard Poe
DiscoverTheNetworks.org
2005

First proposed in 1966 and named after Columbia University sociologists Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven, the “Cloward-Piven Strategy� seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

Inspired by the August 1965 riots in the black district of Watts in Los Angeles (which erupted after police had used batons to subdue an African American man suspected of drunk driving), Cloward and Piven published an article titled “The Weight of the Poor: A Strategy to End Poverty” in the May 2, 1966 issue of The Nation. Following its publication, The Nation sold an unprecedented 30,000 reprints. Activists were abuzz over the so-called “crisis strategy” or “Cloward-Piven Strategy,” as it came to be called. Many were eager to put it into effect.

The strategy is to make the “enemy” live up to their own rules, except I would say they only want those rules enforced in their favor and never against them. It’s also a “Trojan Horse” movement strategy, meaning activist groups that pretend to help the poor but it’s only meant to make their lot worse and lead to a breakdown in the whole system and bring down the government.
