Senators Dismiss Treasonous NSA Attack on Fourth Amendment

June 7, 2013
After The Guardian outed the NSA and its unprecedented violations of the Fourth Amendment, members of Congress took to the limelight to defend the government’s tyrannical behavior.
San Francisco Democrat Dianne Feinstein led the pack. She said the massive intrusion into the private affairs of Americans minus court-issued warrants is on par with the TSA sticking its hand down the pants of travelers.
“I read intelligence carefully, and I know that people are trying to get to us,” she said during a press conference following a super-secret Intelligence Committee meeting. “This is the reason why we keep TSA doing what it’s doing. This is the reason why the FBI now has 10,000 people doing intelligence on counterterrorism. This is the reason for the National Counterterrorism Center that’s been set up in the time we’ve been active. It’s to ferret this out before it happens. It’s called protecting America.”
In order to underscore the fact support for the fraudulent war on terror and the erosion of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights is not limited to the deceptive ramblings of Democrats, Sen. Saxby Chambliss, a Republican said to represent Georgia, threw in his two cents. “Let me just emphasize, this is nothing particularly new. This has been going on for seven years under the auspices of the FISA authority and every member of the United States Senate has been advised of this,” he said.
In short: Nothing to see here. Move along. “To my knowledge, we have not had any citizen who has registered a complaint relative to the gathering of this information.” In other words, since nobody beefed about a program that was secret until Wednesday, we shouldn’t be worried about the government wantonly violating our constitutional rights. After all, according to the senator, the NSA is just collecting harmless meta data, so no worries. “It is simply what we call metadata that is never utilized by any governmental agency unless they go back to the FISA court and show that there’s real cause as to why something within the metadata should be looked at,” he explained.
Never mind that FISA is itself an unconstitutional secret court designed to skirt the Fourth Amendment. Chambliss’ smug dismissal and apology for over-the-top treason is undoubtedly linked to the Senate’s vote to extend the FISA Amendment Act for five years, well into the term of the next teleprompter-reader-in-chief. Our supposed representatives rejected out of hand “all the proposed amendments that would have brought a modicum of transparency and oversight to the government’s activities, despite previous refusals by the Executive branch to even estimate how many Americans are surveilled by this program or reveal critical secret court rulings interpreting it,” as the Electronic Frontier Foundation put it.
Chambliss seems to have shared the same crib notes Feinstein used. “That’s been very clear all along through the years of this program. It is proved meritorious, because we have gathered significant information on bad guys, but only on bad guys, over the years.”
Predictably, the reformulated Tea Party also supports the Stasi state. “I try not to comment on the results of a program or its effectiveness,” said Sen. Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican who has been dubbed the “crown prince of the Tea Party movement” by the establishment media. He said “programs like this have great utility.”
Rubio sidestepped comments made by Senate colleague Rand Paul of Kentucky, who said on Wednesday: “After revelations that the Internal Revenue Service targeted political dissidents and the Department of Justice seized reporters’ phone records, it would appear that this Administration has now sunk to a new low.”
“If the President and Congress would obey the Fourth Amendment we all swore to uphold, this new shocking revelation that the government is now spying on citizens’ phone data en masse would never have happened,” Paul added.
However, despite the outrage and facile explanations – replete with images of bad guys who participate in phantom (and FBI orchestrated) terror plots – the latest revelations concerning NSA surveillance are hardly shocking considering the agency’s checkered past.
“For almost 30 years, copies of most international telegrams originating or forwarded through the United States were turned over to the National Security Agency,” Senator Frank Church said way back in the 1970s during congressional hearings exposing Operation Shamrock and other programs.
Beginning in 1945, Operation Shamrock, and its sister program Operation Minaret, allowed the NSA’s predecessor – based in the Pentagon – to search millions of telegrams. “Intercepted messages were disseminated to the FBI, CIA, Secret Service, Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, and the Department of Defense.” No court authorized the operation and there were no warrants, the Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities reported on April 23, 1976.
It should be more than obvious now that ever increasing and technologically more sophisticated surveillance is a key feature of the national security state established under the National Security Act of 1947 reorganizing the military establishment and creating the CIA and the National Security Council. The NSA was established two years later in 1949.
Edward Snowden, the Booz Allen Hamilton staffer with a top-secret security clearance who leaked details of NSA surveillance, is welcome to seek asylum in Iceland, according to lawmaker Birgitta Jónsdóttir and Smari McCarthy, executive director of the International Modern Media Institute, an organization dedicated to protecting whistleblowers.
Snowden is currently staying in a Hong Kong hotel. In an interview appearing in the Guardian, the 29-year old intelligence analyst said his “predisposition is to seek asylum in a country with shared values. The nation that most encompasses this is Iceland. They stood up for people over internet freedom.”
Hong Kong shares an extradition treaty with the United States. “The only thing I can do is sit here and hope the Hong Kong government does not deport me,”Snowden told Glenn Greenwald of the Guardian. “I have no idea what my future is going to be.”
“Over the last few days we at the International Modern Media Institute have watched alongside the rest of the world as the US government’s enormous encroachments on privacy and information security have been exposed in the media,” a statement issued by Jónsdóttir and McCarthy’ reads. “These exposures have verified our greatest fears about the state of global intelligence gathering, and yet again highlighted the need for strong privacy protections and government transparency.”
“Whereas IMMI is based in Iceland, and has worked on protections of privacy, furtherance of government transparency, and the protection of whistleblowers, we feel it is our duty to offer to assist and advise Mr. Snowden to the greatest of our ability,” the statement continues. “We are currently attempting to get in touch with Mr. Snowden to confirm that this is his will and discuss the details of his asylum request … and will over the course of the week be seeking a meeting with the newly appointed interior minister of Iceland, Mrs. Hanna Birna Kristjánsdóttir, to discuss whether an asylum request can be processed in a swift manner, should such an application be made.”
Booz Allen released a statement stating it will work with authorities to investigation Snowden. “News reports that this individual has claimed to have leaked classified information are shocking, and if accurate, this action represents a grave violation of the code of conduct and core values of our firm. We will work closely with our clients and authorities in their investigation of this matter,” the statement reads.
Meanwhile, authorities in the United States are preparing to go after Snowden. “Any person who has a security clearance knows that he or she has an obligation to protect classified information and abide by the law,”Shawn Turner, a spokesman for the director of national intelligence, James Clapper, said on Monday.
Republican Rep. Peter King of New York promised to extradite Snowden. “If Edward Snowden did in fact leak the NSA data as he claims, the United States government must prosecute him to the fullest extent of the law and begin extradition proceedings at the earliest date,” King said in a written statement. “The United States must make it clear that no country should be granting this individual asylum. This is a matter of extraordinary consequence to American intelligence.”
Birgitta Jónsdóttir, a member of the Icelandic Parliament representing the Citizens’ Movement, has appeared on the Alex Jones Show. She now represents The Movement in the Icelandic Parliament. She is a poet, writer, artist, editor, and publisher, and has worked as an activist and a spokesperson for a number of groups, including Wikileaks, Saving Iceland, Friends of Tibet in Iceland, and currently the Icelandic Modern Media Initiative.
Michael Snyder has provided details on Main Core, a list of some 8 million or more names compiled by the CIA and U.S. intelligence. The individuals on the Main Core list, he writes, will be rounded up after the Constitution is suspended and and martial law imposed.
Main Core is not a secret. Snyder points to a Wikipedia entry describing the database:
Main Core is the code name of a database maintained since the 1980s by the federal government of the United States. Main Core contains personal and financial data of millions of U.S. citizens believed to be threats to national security. The data, which comes from the NSA, FBI, CIA, and other sources, is collected and stored without warrants or court orders. The database’s name derives from the fact that it contains “copies of the ‘main core’ or essence of each item of intelligence information on Americans produced by the FBI and the other agencies of the U.S. intelligence community.”
Senator Feinstein, Rep. Mike Rogers and the apologists for high-tech tyranny insist the NSA’s Prism and and Boundless Informant are about protecting us from terrorists. If you are a student of history, however, you will realize this is nonsense. If you know anything about Continuity of Government measures implemented following September 11, 2001 and earlier programs like Rex 84 and Operation Garden Plot, you already have a sneaking suspicion the NSA’s massive surveillance operation has nothing to do with al-Qaeda. It’s about collecting data on American citizens, specifically the eight or so million compiled in the Main Core database.
Following Edward Snowden’s revelations on the NSA, Washington’s Blog posted a quote from investigative journalist Christopher Ketcham, who wrote five years ago that our private information
…seems to be fair game for collection without a warrant: the e-mail addresses you send to and receive from, and the subject lines of those messages; the phone numbers you dial, the numbers that dial in to your line, and the durations of the calls; the Internet sites you visit and the keywords in your Web searches; the destinations of the airline tickets you buy; the amounts and locations of your ATM withdrawals; and the goods and services you purchase on credit cards. All of this information is archived on government supercomputers and, according to sources, also fed into the Main Core database.
Ketcham of Radar Magazine arrived at the following conclusion, well before the New York Times and the rest of the corporate media reported the latest revelation about the NSA and peddled the lame excuse that it is all about saving us from stereotypical Muslim terrorists who hate us for our freedom:
There exists a database of Americans, who, often for the slightest and most trivial reason, are considered unfriendly, and who, in a time of panic, might be incarcerated. The database can identify and locate perceived “enemies of the state” almost instantaneously. He and other sources tell Radar that the database is sometimes referred to by the code name Main Core. One knowledgeable source claims that 8 million Americans are now listed in Main Core as potentially suspect. In the event of a national emergency, these people could be subject to everything from heightened surveillance and tracking to direct questioning and possibly even detention.
Te NSA’s Prism and Boundless Informant represent only the latest details of a story stretching back decades. The national security state has spent years and expended billions of dollars in a coordinated effort to categorize and monitor enemies of the state.
“Investigations this past winter by groups such as the ACLU and some media outlets have revealed numerous occasions of FBI, Defense Department, and local police infiltration and monitoring of domestic peace groups,”Andy Dunn wrote in March, 2006. “Further, some of the details surrounding the NSA program and other surveillance operations point to a new paradigm in intelligence operations, which involve massive ‘datamining’ reminiscent of the government’s supposedly shelved Total Information Awareness program.”
Dunn notes that the state, beginning with the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798, has consistently spied upon and regularly persecuted a large number of official political enemies, an effort that realized its nadir with the FBI’s COINTELPRO beginning in the 1960s, a counter intelligence program consisting of illegal, violent and unethical tactics designed to stifle legitimate political activism in the United States. Evidence reveals that COINTELPRO was not dismantled, as the FBI and the government maintained, but was continued.
“Additionally, the now huge ‘national security state’ of dozens of federal and military intelligence agencies conducted similar acts, sometimes coordinated with and sometimes competing against COINTELPRO,” Dunn writes. “The names of these operations sound like something from a 1960s spy show, like ‘The Man From Uncle’: Operation CHAOS, Projects RESISTANCE, MERRIMAC, MINARET, and SHAMROCK.”
Of course, the establishment media fails to draw the correct conclusion when it purports to cover the NSA surveillance program. Instead of national security state bureaucrats gone wild in a zealous drive to ferret out al-Qaeda and other bad guys, the massive NSA surveillance program is about discovering domestic enemies of the state that will be dealt with after martial law is declared under the ruse of a false flag attack or a catastrophic natural emergency.
Google-Berg: Global Elite Transform Itself For Technocratic Revolution
May 14, 2013, 11:13:am
Authoritarian, anti-democratic power networks are being re-branded as trendy, philanthropic-style forums
Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones
May 13, 2013
The secretive Bilderberg Group is currently undergoing a major transformation that will see it and other high profile networks merge under the banner of Google as the elite accelerates its plan to consolidate its technocratic agenda.
This past weekend, Infowars reporters Paul Joseph Watson and Jon Scobie visited the luxury Grove Hotel in Watford, UK, site of the 2013 Bilderberg Group conference set to take place June 6-9, a clandestine annual gathering of over 100 of the world’s most influential power brokers in the fields of politics, academia, technology, business and banking.
The investigation was prompted by our sources, who advised us to visit the Grove in advance of Bilderberg 2013. This is part one of what promises to be a developing story as the pieces of the jigsaw fall into place backed up by years of Bilderberg tracking and research.
What we discovered was groundbreaking and represents one of if not the most important development in Bilderberg’s 59 year history.
Put simply, Bilderberg is merging with Google under the stewardship of Google CEO Eric Schmidt, a regular Bilderberg attendee. Google’s annual Zeitgeist conference, which has been based at the Grove since 2007, immediately precedes the Bilderberg Group conference by a matter of days.
Backed up by prior research, we were able to confirm in conversations with hotel managers and others that the Grove is now a central base for Google’s agenda to control the global political and technological landscape.
The talk in the Grove is not of Bilderberg, that is barely a footnote, the real excitement centers around Google Zeitgeist, which was described by the London Independent as, “a cuddlier version of the Bilderberg Group, the supposedly shadowy network of financiers that holds a private annual assembly, recast in the image of our new tech masters.”
Bilderberg is indeed being recast as ‘Google-Berg’ – partly because of efforts on behalf of activists to tear away the veil of Bilderberg’s much cherished secrecy, and partly as a means of re-branding authoritarian, undemocratic secret gatherings of elites as trendy, liberal, feel-good philanthropic-style forums like Google Zeitgeist and TED.
In reality, behind the scenes Google is using such forums as proving grounds on which to form the consensus that shapes the globe. We were told directly that the organizers behind the so-called “Arab Spring,” which began in Tunisia and Egypt, which as we have documented is in fact a series of contrived western-backed color revolutions masquerading as organic uprisings, were recruited by Google and subsequently attended the Zeitgeist conference at the Grove.
It’s also well documented that the man responsible for kick-starting the “revolution” in Egypt, which led to the installation of a Muslim Brotherhood dictatorship which the west can now use as a justification for further intervention, was Google employee Wael Ghonim.
Google’s growing influence within both the British and American governments is also well documented. Eric Schmidt was a campaign advisor and a major donor to Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns. He was also reportedly offered the post of Treasury Secretary within the Obama administration. In Britain, Google representatives have met no less than 23 times with Conservative Party officials since the general election in 2010. David Cameron addressed the inaugural 2006 Zeitgeist conference before going on to become Prime Minister four years later. British Chancellor George Osborne paid a visit to Zeitgeist just weeks before he also attended Bilderberg 2011 in St. Moritz, Switzerland.
The crossover between Zeitgeist and Bilderberg has deepened in recent years, with the London Telegraph comparing the power of the Google confab to the World Economic Forum in Davos, “attracting figures of global significance to talk and to network.”
Google is clearly positioning itself to become a force more powerful than governments in controlling and monitoring people’s behavior across the globe through all manner of different means, from cars that drive themselves (and are constantly tracked by a centralized Google database), to Google Glass which is akin to having a Google microchip in your forehead, to Google’s deep involvement in manipulating mass movements through social media as they did in Egypt and Tunisia.
The Grove Hotel is a perfect staging ground for such machinations given its role in World War 2 as a “secret wartime HQ for the London, Midland & Scottish Railway” named “Project X”.
The direction in which this is all heading can clearly be surmised from remarks made by Eric Schmidt himself, who has repeatedly made it clear that he thinks privacy is a relic of the past and plans to turn Google into the ultimate Big Brother that makes George Orwell’s 1984 look like a children’s fairy tale.
“We don’t need you to type at all. We know where you are. We know where you’ve been. We can more or less know what you’re thinking about.”
“I actually think most people don’t want Google to answer their questions [...] They want Google to tell them what they should be doing next.”
“If you have something that you don’t want anyone to know, maybe you shouldn’t be doing it in the first place.”
“We need a [verified] name service for people,” he said. “Governments will demand it.” (Chinese-style Internet control).
“We know everything you’re doing and the government can track you.”
“We will know your position down to the foot and down to the inch over time…Your car will drive itself, it’s a bug that cars were invented before computers…you’re never lonely…you’re never bored…you’re never out of ideas.”
In numerous speeches, including those made at Google Zeitgeist, Schmidt has outlined his vision for a collectivist, permanently networked world in which individuality and privacy are ostracized and those who refuse to sign up to the new religion of transhumanism are shunned as sub-human savages.
That is the primary agenda now being formulated by Google Zeitgeist luminaries in concert with the Bilderberg Group, which shares many of the same members.
A Busy Time at the Grove
Our source told us that there were “four or five big conferences” coming up at the Grove in May, June and July, but intimated that Google Zeitgeist was clearly considered the biggest, with the 227 room hotel not even large enough to accommodate all the guests and administrative staff required to be in attendance, adding that they had to be put up in London hotels.
Huge temporary structures, watched by security guards, were also being constructed on grounds near to the hotel when we visited. These are set to be used for Google’s ‘Big Tent’ event, which is a more public showcase than their private ‘Zeitgeist’ confab. Whether the facilities will also be used by the Bilderberg Group remains to be seen.
The source emphasized that Grove staff had been told not to disclose any information about the Zeitgeist conference and that Google only released information they wanted the public to know. However, the upcoming confab was the talk of the bar and both employees and guests were clearly excited about it.
The source said that security for the event was the same as when heads of state would visit and that the hotel was coordinating with “state security” to run the conference, which inevitably means that taxpayer money will be used to fund the operation, as it is admittedly being used to provide security for Bilderberg. He added that the likes of Google and Bilderberg chose the Grove as a venue because security was far easier to provide compared to hotels in London which are surrounded by high-traffic streets.
Bilderberg’s 2013 Agenda
In terms of Bilderberg’s agenda for the 2013 confab, early indications from our inside source have thrown up a number of different issues that will be up for discussion before Bilderberg instructs its members to implement the agreed upon consensus in each of their fields of influence.
Bear in mind that the motivation behind Bilderberg’s scheming can probably best be encapsulated by remarks made by Bilderberg luminary Henry Kissinger which recently came to light thanks to Wikileaks.
“Before the Freedom of Information Act, I used to say at meetings, ‘The illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer.’ [laughter] But since the Freedom of Information Act, I’m afraid to say things like that,” said Kissinger.
At least some if not all of the following issues will be discussed and agreed upon at Bilderberg 2013.
- Targeting Iran’s nuclear processing facilities for destruction via air strikes within the next 3 years if Tehran refuses to give up its nuclear program.
- Prolonging the war in Syria by arming the rebels and overturning recent military victories by Assad’s forces.
- The threat of a global pandemic, caused in part by rising resistance to antibiotics, which given the role of some of the pharmaceutical companies represented at Bilderberg in “accidentally” releasing viruses is somewhat rich.
- The manufacturing revolution of 3D printing and ways to control it and prevent the democratization of production.
- So-called “cyber resilience,” which means more state control over the Internet. There is much talk of “Digital Wildfires” – they are scared stiff about losing control over information dissemination.
- Setting up a Ministry of Truth for the Internet similar to that advocated by Bill Clinton. Controlling what can be published on the Internet.
- Advancing so-called “smart cities” that spy on every aspect of public behavior. Installing systems like Intellistreets that record street conversations. Rolling out the landscape of the technocracy.
- The threat caused to social stability by declining living standards and wealth.
- A desperate last gasp move to prevent Britain from leaving the EU and crushing the dream of a centralized European federation.
- More bailouts to prop up the euro.
- Minimal economic growth in 2013.
- Increasing the amount of power obtained by central banks under the guise of “bank reform”.
- Organizing more aggressive powers of tax collection
- Managing a growing credit bubble that threatens runaway inflation in Europe.
We will expand more on Bilderberg’s 2013 agenda as and when more information is obtained from our sources.

The Federal Reserve plan to crash the economy and make room for world government and an authoritarian globalist economic and accompanying police state control system will necessitate a sufficient prerequisite – and that prerequisite may very well be a new war on the Korean peninsula.
If you’d like to get a handle on what Federal Reserve policy will ultimately mean, read David Stockman’s article published in the New York Times last Sunday.
“Funny money cranked out by the Fed has stayed trapped in the canyons of Wall Street, where it is inflating yet another unsustainable bubble,” Stockman writes. “And when the Wall Street bubble bursts, there will be no new round of bailouts like the ones the banks got in 2008. Instead, America will descend into an era of zero-sum austerity and virulent political conflict, extinguishing even today’s feeble remnants of economic growth.”
Economic depressions are highly scripted affairs and the banksters use them to initiate big wars – not only because wars are remarkably profitable for the military-industrial complex, but because they serve as an ideal tool for wealth consolidation and fire sales held in their aftermath. Big wars are also exploited to enforce rigid discipline on the masses. It gives the plebs an excuse to accept grinding poverty and servitude.
World War II followed the last Great Depression – directly caused by the Fed, as Helicopter Ben has admitted. Communism, as the late Antony C. Sutton has documented, was created and franchised by Wall Street. The arch globalist kingpin David Rockefeller has praised its ruthless effectiveness in China under the mega-mass murderer Mao.
“As the economic crisis escalates and the debt-based central banking system shows it can no longer re-inflate the bubble by creating assets out of thin air, an economic and political rationale for war is easy to come by,” writes Justin Raimondo.
“It is said that FDR’s New Deal didn’t get us out of the Great Depression, but World War II did,” Raimondo continues. “The truth is that, in wartime, when people are expected to sacrifice for the duration of the ‘emergency,’ economic problems are anesthetized out of existence by liberal doses of nationalist chest-beating and moral righteousness. Shortages and plunging living standards were masked by a wartime rationing system and greatly lowered expectations. And just as World War II inured us to the economic ravages wrought by our thieving elites, so World War III will provide plenty of cover for a virtual takeover of all industry by the government and the demonization of all political opposition as ‘terrorist.’”
It will also provide cover for the “global governance” scheme the globalists are itching to install.
Next Up: A New Korean War
It certainly looks like the elite are planning a war against North Korea. Consider the following remarkable events over the last few days (h/t to Moon of Alabama for contributing).
North Korea said on Tuesday that it would put all its nuclear facilities… to use in expanding its nuclear weapons arsenal, sharply raising the stakes in the escalating standoff with the United States and its allies.
The Unified Quest war game conducted this year by Army planners posited the collapse of a nuclear-armed, xenophobic, criminal family regime that had lorded over a closed society and inconveniently lost control over its nukes as it fell. Army leaders stayed mum about the model for the game, but all indications — and maps seen during the game at the Army War College — point to North Korea.
South Korean and U.S. forces have been carrying out naval drills in seas around the peninsula with a nuclear attack submarine as part of their annual exercise, military sources said Wednesday, in a show of power against North Korea’s threat of nuclear attack.
Halfway through the around-the-clock Key Resolve drills Friday, 8th U.S. Army Commander Lt. Gen. John D. Johnson remained full of energy as he underscored that the allied forces were ready to cope with North Korean threats.
Around 10,000 ROK troops and 3,000 US soldiers, including 2,500 reinforcements from US Pacific command in Hawaii, are taking part in the military exercise, which will continue through Mar. 21. Another 10,000 US soldiers will be deployed by the end of this month for the Foal Eagle exercises. Also flown in to participate in the exercises were B-52 bombers and F-22 stealth fighters, which boast the world’s highest levels of performance. These two kinds of aircraft can maneuver throughout Korean airspace without landing. In addition, the 9750t Aegis destroyers USS Lassen and USS Fitzgerald arrived in South Korea.
For the first time in 15 years, 2nd Infantry Division and Eighth U.S. Army soldiers tackled the rigorous Air Assault Course at Camp Hovey, South Korea…. The course qualifies soldiers to conduct air assault and helicopter sling-load operations and proper rappelling and fast-rope techniques.
Marines from I Company, 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, slog through wind and snow during a joint training exercise with Japanese troops at the Hokkaido-Dai Maneuver Area in northern Japan last week.
[T]he rhetoric sets up an especially tense period on the Korean Peninsula, with the U.S. and South Korean militaries planning joint training drills that the North considers a “dangerous nuclear war” maneuver, and with the U.N. Security Council deliberating new sanctions to limit Pyongyang’s weapons program.

President Barack Obama is now the global head of Al-Qaeda – bankrolling, arming and equipping terrorists around the world in order to achieve his administration’s geopolitical objectives – while simultaneously invoking the threat of terrorists domestically to destroy the bill of rights.
Since it has now been established that those merely suspected of engaging in terrorism are subject to targeted drone strikes, under the terms of his own prosecution of the war on terror, Obama must immediately order a drone strike on the White House.
As the New York Times reported, these very same terrorists killed U.S. troops in Iraq and yet western backing for the insurgency against Bashar Al-Assad has enabled violent extremists to seize power in Syria.
In supporting Al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria as part of the effort to impose regime change, the Obama administration is following the same disastrous policy it pursued in Libya, backing the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, which also killed U.S. troops in Iraq, to overthrow Gaddafi.
Given all this, it’s abundantly clear that the Obama administration has easily outstripped other targets of drone strikes in its zeal to support terrorism around the world.
American citizen Anwar Al-Awlaki was killed by a drone strike simply for producing propaganda videos and communicating with accused terrorists. His 16-year-old son was similarly slaughtered for merely sharing his father’s surname. Other American citizens like John Walker Lindh were imprisoned and tortured in Guantanamo Bay for fighting with the Taliban.
By backing terrorists in Afghanistan, Libya and now Syria, Barack Obama has carved out a role as the global head of Al-Qaeda. Wherever on the map his administration wants to dominate geopolitically, Al-Qaeda terrorists flood in to to the dirty work – and it’s all paid for with your tax dollars.
By ordering a drone strike on the White House, Obama would be targeting the primary source now responsible for most of the world’s global terrorism – his own administration.

For sedition against the Constitution
January 15, 2013
“When a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.
There can no longer be any doubt – the forces of tyranny are running wild across our once great Republic. The time has come for all good men and women to rally to the aid of their country. We have now entered a historic crossroads that will decide the destiny of the United States. Arrogance and corruption has long festered in Washington DC, but the last decade has seen an extreme acceleration of criminal looting and attacks on liberty – every freedom is under sustained assault.
We the People, the rightful masters of this Republic, will either rise up through Congress and the states or we can trade in our birthright of liberty for the chains of a technocratic slavery. Below we list some of the more egregious acts of seditious treason against the Republic of the United States. Anyone who wishes to continue to live in a free country and to pass that birthright on to their children must research this document and then lobby state legislatures and the Congress to do their duty and remove the would-be dictator.
The time has now come for a bill of impeachment to be introduced and debated in Congress. Obama’s crimes are public, and the debate in the House will serve as a court in which to display the tyrannical activities of President Obama and his cohorts. As in the case of Richard Nixon, the exposure of Obama’s crimes may cause him to resign in disgrace. If he does not step down, the full House will then vote to begin the impeachment trial in the US Senate. The time has now come to make your decision – to stand up to evil or get on your knees as a willing slave.
Articles of Impeachment Against Barack Hussein Obama – Filed by Citizen Alexander Emric Jones, January 15, 2013.
- He has clearly communicated his intent to eviscerate the second amendment rights of American citizens by pursuing executive orders to curtail the right to keep and bear arms without congressional authorization and in violation of the second amendment.
Below, Congressman Stockman has pledged to move for impeachment against Obama. I am standing up against Obama right beside him, will you?
“The President’s actions are an existential threat to this nation,” reads a statement by Rep. Steve Stockman. “The right of the people to keep and bear arms is what has kept this nation free and secure for over 200 years. The very purpose of the Second Amendment is to stop the government from disallowing people the means to defend themselves against tyranny. Any proposal to abuse executive power and infringe upon gun rights must be repelled with the stiffest legislative force possible.”
- He has lied to the American people by overseeing a cover-up of the Benghazi attack which directly led to the deaths of four American citizens. The cover-up has been called “Obama’s Watergate,” yet four months after the incident, no one in the administration has been held accountable.
- He has brazenly undermined the power of Congress by insisting his authority came from the United Nations Security Council prior to the attack on Libya and that Congressional approval was not necessary. “I don’t even have to get to the Constitutional question,”said Obama. This is an act that “constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under article II, section 4 of the Constitution,” according to Congressman Walter Jones.
- He has signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act which includes provisions that permit the abduction and military detention without trial of U.S. citizens, violating Habeas Corpus. Despite Obama claiming he would not use the provisions to incarcerate U.S. citizens, it was his administration that specifically demanded these powers be included in the final NDAA bill.
- He has violated Article II of the Constitution by using signing statements as part of his executive usurpation of power.
“I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of impeachment.”
Rep. Steve Stockman, Texas.
For these, and other offenses which constitute high crimes and misdemeanors, including perjury of oath, abuse of authority, bribery, intimidation, misuse of assets, failure to supervise, dereliction of duty, conduct unbecoming and refusal to obey a lawful order, we call for the immediate impeachment of Barack H. Obama.
Alex Jones to Piers Morgan: “You Are NOT Going to Take Our Guns”
January 8, 2013
Alex Jones appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight last night to deliver a clear message: “You are not going to take our guns.”
While Piers attempted to ask leading questions peppered with isolated gun statistics to paint a false picture of reality in the wake of the Connecticut school shooting, Alex educated Piers on the real reason America has a Second Amendment and why it is necessary to preserve it.
Globalism is trying to overthrow our Republic and take over the world.
After stating his position on the banning American citizens from owning semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines in the wake of the Sandy Hook massacre, Piers Morgan began his interview with Alex Jones on CNN last night by asking, “Why do you want to deport me?”
Alex’s answer? “We did it to point out this is globalism.”
The reason our forefathers penned the Second Amendment was to keep the power in the hands of the people and stave off a tyrannical government. America is one of the last bastions of freedom when it comes to private firearm ownership.
The U.S. government is armed to the teeth against its own people.
Just last week, Infowars reported that DHS just purchased another 200,000 rounds of ammunition in addition to the over 1.6 billion the agency has already bought over the last year.
All the bullets bought will be added to the hundreds of pieces of riot gear, monstrous armored SWAT trucks, bulletproof guard shacks, and 24 predator drones DHS owns. DHS does not fight foreign wars; it is a domestic-only operation. These purchases are not meant to be used engaging foreign enemies in some faraway land. Many people falsely believe that ‘Homeland Security’ is for securing the homeland.
Protecting the homeland really means maintaining continuity of government, not protecting the public.
And the DHS is just one armed U.S. government entity.
As Alex mentioned to Piers, Operation Fast and Furious was perpetrated by the U.S. government to demonize the Second Amendment in a treasonous attempt to disarm the American people on record.
Again, the Second Amendment was deemed necessary to ensure the balance of power – to ensure government is not the only one with guns. As Alex told Piers, “The Second Amendment isn’t there for duck hunting. It’s there to protect us from tyrannical government.”
Statistics show more guns – not gun control – equals less crime.
Paul Joseph Watson reported yesterday the number of guns in America has increased over the last four decades while serious violent crimes have decreased. The FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports show violent crime has consistently plunged over the last five years.
We have also reported that statistics show gun control laws do not prevent crime. While Piers’ home country does report less gun murders because of draconian police state citizen disarmament, the U.K. has also been deemed “The violent crime capital of Europe,” with one of the highest reported violence rates in the world.
Legal prescription drugs kill more Americans every year than guns.
A 40-year trend is hard to easily dismiss, so gun grabbers like Piers Morgan have to politicize events like the Sandy Hook shooting and isolate and spout a single statistic: the number of people killed in America every year by a gun.
However, guns are nowhere near the biggest killer in America each year.
Half of all firearm deaths in the U.S. are actually suicides. More guns are fired during suicides than during homicides in America.
Many mass shooters have been on dangerous prescription antidepressants.
Here’s another fact the mainstream media isn’t talking about: antidepressants, or Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs), have been linked to many of the mass shootings that have occurred here in the U.S. in the past decade.
The Second Amendment is meant to protect us against tyrannical government, but what it ultimately protects us from is death by democide.
Alex: “I’m here to tell you 1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms.”
As Alex told Piers, “Just because there are criminals, I don’t lose my guns.”
As we’ve reported again and again, gun control would not have stopped the Sandy Hook shooting or any criminal shooting. Stealing guns to break into a supposedly gun-free zone and murder children…these are crimes. Criminals who commit crimes obviously do not obey laws. That is why they are called criminals. Laws do not prevent crime, they are merely there to punish it.
Bringing up a single, standalone statistic like the number of gun deaths is a ploy to pull on people’s heartstrings while ignoring the whole truth about what is really going on here: disarmament.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, who was later implicated in the anti-Second Amendment Operation Fast and Furious even attempted to start a campaign to, “really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way” back in 1995.
This plan to disarm America in a bid for a total takeover has been in the works for a long time, but exposing this agenda as Alex did on CNN last night is one way to fight this treason and take our Republic back.
Alex’s outrage is absolutely justified.
While Alex has garnered criticism for his demeanor on Piers’ show last night, America is facing a truly dark hour.
If someone’s house is burning down, the time for calm discussion has long passed. It’s time to bang on the door, yell and scream, raise the house, and get people to listen to help save their lives.
As Mike Adams’ explains, “If our only aim is to remain polite and ‘proper,’ we will all be quietly enslaved, disarmed, bankrupted and corralled into the dark depths of government corruption and coercion. The time to be polite is over. It’s time we all got fired up and called the bluff of the corrupt, criminal elite.”
We have to contact our politicians and tell them to uphold our Constitution and Second Amendment.
Even the White House has put up a page to “Share Your Thoughts on Reducing Gun Violence” following the Connecticut shooting to “get something meaningful done.” Contact them and let them know this tragedy does not mean they can dismantle the Constitution!
Demonizing Alex Jones, CNN Urges ‘Move to the Middle’ on Gun Control
January 8, 2013
Predictably demonizing radio host Alex Jones as extremist after his fiery appearance on Piers Morgan’s CNN program last night, the cable network urged its viewers to ‘compromise’ and ‘move to the middle’ by giving support to President Obama’s ‘reasonable’ gun control measures.
Meanwhile, Piers Morgan was portrayed as a victim after weeks of belittling firearms advocates. Once again, the collaborator media is trying to place guilt on gun owners for defending the right to keep and bear arms, pleading for compromise.
You cannot compromise on principle, and you cannot compromise on the 2nd Amendment — it ‘shall not be infringed.’
Piers Morgan and Guests Discuss Shooting Alex Jones
Daily Beast writer Buzz Bissinger says Piers Morgan should “pop” Alex Jones with a semi-automatic weapon.
January 8, 2013
CNN and the gun grabbing media are now calling for Alex Jones to be shot the day after his heated appearance with Piers Morgan.
In a segment on Piers Morgan’s CNN program, sports columnist for the Daily Beast, Buzz Bissinger, shockingly states:
“I don’t care what the justification is that you’re allowed in this country to own a semi-automatic weapon – much less a handgun. But what do you need a semi-automatic weapon for? The only reason I think you’d need it is, Piers, challenge Alex Jones to a boxing match, show up with a semi-automatic that you got legally and pop him.”
Abby Huntsman (Huffington Post) : “I’d love to see that… [laughter] in uniform.”
Piers Morgan: “I’ll borrow my brothers uniform.”
The other guests laugh and say they’d like to see it. Without a doubt, this amounts to a veiled threat.
Earlier in the episode, another guest expressed hope that Alex Jones’ children would not be killed, which Jones’ says terrorized his children and family as they watched on from home.
CNN Guest Says Kill Alex Jones! FPS Russian Executed
This call to violence from those demanding gun control is nothing new.
White House Formally Responds to ‘Deport Piers Morgan’ Petition
Jay Carney defends first amendment while Obama attempts to eviscerate second
Paul Joseph Watson
January 9, 2013
The White House has issued a glib response to the petition to deport CNN host Piers Morgan, claiming Morgan’s rhetorical assault on the Constitution is protected by the first amendment, despite the fact that Morgan is not a U.S. citizen and therefore does not enjoy a first amendment right.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney responded to the petition, which has reached over 109,000 signatures, with the following statement;
“Let’s not let arguments over the Constitution’s Second Amendment violate the spirit of its First. President Obama believes that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. However, the Constitution not only guarantees an individual right to bear arms, but also enshrines the freedom of speech and the freedom of the press — fundamental principles that are essential to our democracy. Americans may disagree on matters of public policy and express those disagreements vigorously, but no one should be punished by the government simply because he or she expressed a view on the Second Amendment — or any other matter of public concern.”
The rest of the response is merely a re-hash of Barack Obama’s gun control rhetoric in the aftermath of the Sandy Hook massacre.
In lazily arguing, “Let’s not let arguments over the Constitution’s Second Amendment violate the spirit of its First,” Carney is implying that Piers Morgan’s anti-gun crusade is protected by free speech under the first amendment when it clearly isn’t since foreign nationals do not have absolute first amendment rights.
The fact that the first amendment does not apply to non-citizens was established in the Supreme Court’s affirmation of Bluman v. FEC in January 2012. The court’s decision rubber-stamped a District Court decision which found under its first amendment analysis that, “The United States has a compelling interest in limiting the participation of foreign citizens in such activities, and thereby preventing foreign influence over the U.S. political process.”
Legal precedent also dictates that foreign nationals can be deported from the United States for subversion against the Constitution. In Harisiades v. Shaugnessy (1952), the US Supreme Court upheld Harisiades’ deportation by ruling that the first amendment did not protect Harisiades’ membership of the Communist Party.
In issuing its glib response, the White House has completely failed to even address these cases and has erroneously claimed that the first amendment applies to non-citizen foreign nationals like Piers Morgan, when it does not.
The fact that the White House’s response was timed to coincide precisely with the national media furore over Alex Jones’ appearance on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight is also curiously synchronous, given that Jones was the author of the original petition and Morgan is a personal friend of the Obama’s.
The Obama administration has also revealed yet another side to its rampant hypocrisy – defending the first amendment while aggressively attempting to eviscerate the second via gun control measures that were planned well in advance of recent events.
Obama to Put “Full Weight” Behind Feinstein Gun Confiscation Plan

December 30, 2012
President Obama went on Meet the Press Sunday and said he will put his “full weight” behind passing new restrictions on the Second Amendment in 2013.
“I’m going to be putting forward a package and I’m going to be putting my full weight behind it,” he said. “I’m going to be making an argument to the American people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again.”
During the interview with David Gregory, Obama focused on “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines. Second Amendment foes routinely describe semi-automatic weapons with cosmetic military features as assault weapons.
“I’ve been very clear that an assault rifle ban, banning these high capacity clips, background checks, that there are a set of issues that I have historically supported and will continue to support,” said Obama.
Obama stressed that he will push legislation within the first year of his second term. “I’d like to get it done in the first year,” he said. “I will put forward a very specific proposal based on the recommendations that Joe Biden’s task force is putting together as we speak. And so this is not something that I will be putting off.”
The president told NBC he believes “responsible gun owners” will agree to the recommendations put forward by vice president Biden’s task force.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who promised to enact draconian anti-Second Amendment legislation following the Sandy Hook massacre, said on Sunday America needs to “bite the bullet” and restrict the gun rights of Americans.
“America has to bite the bullet of what these incidents mean to our people, to our nation and our nation’s standing in the world,” Feinstein told Fox News Sunday. “When you have someone walking in and slaying in the most brutal way, 6-year-olds, something is really wrong.”
Feinstein said the firearms of law-abiding Americans need to be placed under “appropriate authority.”
On December 27, we reported that Feinstein is in favor of passing legislation that would treat American gun owners as criminals. On her Senate web page, Feinstein stated her proposed legislation will add fingerprinting and photo identification to the National Firearms Act.
The effort to expand firearms registration will include weapons grandfathered prior to the enactment of Feinstein’s proposed legislation.
On December 20, New York governor Andrew Cuomo said the state may confiscate firearms. “Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it,” the governor said.
Sorry about my lack of existence here lately, I was really busy with work, but I was gone for like two months and no one even sent me a message? What the hell guys D: I could've died and no one would have even asked. >.<
Communist Chinese Government Calls For Americans to be Disarmed
December 21, 2012, 12:24:pm
China can keep its draconian police state, Americans will keep their guns
Paul Joseph Watson
December 20, 2012
The Communist Chinese government, via its state-run media front Xinhua, has called for Americans to be disarmed, arguing that the Sandy Hook school massacre demands “no delay for U.S. gun control.”
Xinhua is virtually the press agency for the Communist Chinese government. The organization, “is subordinate to the State Council and reports to the Communist Party of China’s Propaganda and Public Information Departments.”
In other words, Xinhua represents the pinnacle of Chinese state-run media. Whatever is printed in its editorial pages represents the opinion of the ruling Communist Party leaders.
The article calls on Obama to exploit the tragedy to push his gun control agenda, adding that his lame duck situation represents “the best position to promote it,” while blaming the National Rifle Association for curtailing previous attempts to regulate firearms in the United States.
Noting that after previous mass shootings efforts to impose gun control measures “disappointingly always fail,” the editorial expresses the desire that the “gunman’s cruelty and evil may provide a strong momentum and broader public support for the restart of gun control efforts.”
The article adds that Barack Obama should begin “to make preparation for a protracted war,” with a massive political cost if he wants to eviscerate the second amendment.
As Brandon Darby points out, “The current Chinese government, the communist People’s Republic of China, was established in a revolution led by Mao Zedong, who killed an estimated 40-70 million people with starvation, executions, and re-education camps.”
Indeed, it was Mao himself who said “political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.”
This should provide a hint as to what happens when tyrants are unleashed upon a disarmed population, and why China’s call to repeal the Second Amendment rings chillingly hollow.
If you want to get a taste of how a state treats citizens who refuse to submit to big government tyranny yet who are completely disarmed, look no further than China itself.
As we reported earlier this year, a villager in northern China attempting to resist a forced government relocation by remaining on his land was brutally crushed to death by a road flattening truck on the orders of a Chinese government official.
China is routinely rocked by riots staged by residents furious at the arbitrary theft of their land by the state, which under the Communist system claims that the government owns all land and that private property rights are non-existent. However, the state-owned media ensures that news of the protests does not reach a national audience.
Since the state has all the guns, the idea of government thugs arbitrarily kicking people off their own property is a routine occurrence in China. The kind of massive land grabs and forced relocations that occur almost every day in China is not a situation that has yet been visited on America primarily because Americans have the second amendment with which to protect their private property rights.
China can keep its forced relocations, its summary execution of political dissidents, its mobile execution vans, and its draconian police state. Americans will keep their guns, no matter how many times the Communist Chinese government – and all its political allies within America – talk down the second amendment.
