WND by BOB UNRUH (MY TWO SENSE: It never ceases to amaze me-no, confound me, how simple-minded those on the left can be. There is not one shred of evidence that connects the Tea Party to domestic terrorism and absolutely no evidence of Tea Party groups indulging in violence or strong-arming others in the way the White House thugs do. This maneuver is just that—a tactic designed to spread fear and hatred against those who want nothing but to keep America free. It’s unthinkable that Obama’s campaign to malign the Tea Party is working, but what’s unfathomable is that folks take the charges as facts when there has never been an iota of proof and not one incident that directly relates an act of violence to the Tea Party. What this poll has done is to ask questions that are designed to elicit responses that skew the outcome toward a favored premise. What questions did poll takers use? What people did they use? What political party did they use? What socioeconomic group did they use? How many more questions used were geared toward the favored outcome ! When poll-takers want to support a claim/hypothesis they use an old statistical model of trick questions that result in a predetermined outcome. That’s typical for those on the Obama band wagon! Facts are facts, and I dare anyone to substantiate those claims of the Rasmussen poll. This warring tactic, and the fact that Obama supporters are so easily swayed is no proof. Regardless of how many times a lie is told, it never becomes truth. If it weren’t so bad for the future of this country, I’d say let them go down in flames and see for themselves just how bad things will get if we allow it. I’m tired of this game of progressives making mincemeat out of Conservatives because it’s the only way they can win. I’m tired of the lazy asses who sit idle and suck up false information because it’s easier than looking for the truth. And I’m tired of being on this sinking ship with a terrific view of a sure-to-come, future that is taking us all down! It’s beyond time to stand up and fight this warring collective. Either tell the media what you think of this evil tactic or join the opposition because you are of no use to the rest of us. JM)


Tea party called ‘top terror threat’ in U.S.

Poll: Obama supporters fear political movement more than radical Islam

Published: 1 hour ago

Bob Unruh joined WND in 2006 after nearly three decades with the Associated Press, as well as several Upper Midwest newspapers, where he covered everything from legislative battles and sports to tornadoes and homicidal survivalists. He is also a photographer whose scenic work has been used commercially.

One in four of those across America who support President Obama believe the tea party is the biggest terror threat to the United States, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll.

The survey was conducted over last weekend and included 1,000 likely voters. It has a margin of error of 3 percentage points, with a 95 percent level of confidence.

It asks a number of questions about America’s security on topics include nuclear weapons, an anti-missile defense shield – and just exactly who is the nation’s top terror threat.

Twenty-six percent of Obama’s supporters say that would be the tea party – the grass-roots political effort to limit the size of government, get bureaucrats out of the average family’s life, and crack down on corruption and graft.

“Among those who Strongly Approve of the president more fear the tea party than radical Muslims,” the survey report said.

Across the nation, about half of the voters believe radical Muslims are the bigger terrorist threat.

The telephone survey revealed 51 percent of likely U.S. voters think radical Muslims are the bigger threat today to the U.S. Thirteen percent of those across the nation put the tea party in that category, and another 13 percent say other political and religious extremists are the danger.

Six percent point to local “militia” groups and 2 percent say Occupy Wall Street is the threat.

“Among those who approve of the president’s job performance, just 29 percent see radical Muslims as the bigger threat. Twenty-six percent say it’s the tea party that concerns them most. Among those who Strongly Approve of the president, more fear the tea party than radical Muslims,” the report said.

“As for those who disapprove of Obama’s performance, 75 percent consider radical Muslims to be the bigger terrorist threat. Just one percent name the tea party,” Rasmussen reported today.

Rasmussen reported that it was curious that even though the “Occupy” movement targeted the upper “1 percent” in the nation, members of that group “are more likely than others to see the tea party as the bigger terror threat.”

“Among those who earn six-figure incomes, 21 percent consider the tea party the bigger threat, while just two percent say the same of the Occupy movement. Among Americans who earn less than $30,000 a year, 12 percent see the tea party as the bigger threat, and seven percent say that description best applies to the Occupy movement,” the poll revealed.

The report said conservatives “overwhelmingly” view radical Muslims as a danger while liberals are split between radical Muslims and the tea party.

A full 1 in 5 government workers “see the tea party as the nation’s bigger terror threat. Twelve percent of private sector workers hold that view.”

Two-thirds of the respondents believe terrorist groups soon will get nuclear weapons, including half of that group that believes it is “very likely.”

TO ALL POLITICAL BLOGGERS by JUST ME (MY TWO SENSE: If you would like to help me spread the word, please feel free to copy and paste any, or all, of my posts. I don’t get my panties in a twist when bloggers do thatand I believe this comes under the Fair Use Notice. Below is a list of videos that show how this country is changing and why. JM)

Obama has been significantly successful in his Presidential efforts.  What most folks are missing is the relative understanding of his actual agenda and goals.  When he said the would “fundamentally transform America,” he meant exactly that, and, starting on day one of 2008, he has pushed forward on those goals.  He never intended to create jobs, he never intended to support our freedoms, he never intended to work on the deficit, and he never wanted anything positive for our nation.  He meant to take us down, strip our liberties from us, and control as much as he could all the while expanding his wealth and vision for the New World Order. 

When we look at Obama’s history in the White House, we clearly see that he is following Saul Alinsky’s teachings in his book, Rules For Radicals; that he is using Cloward and Piven’s 1974 design for, Regulating the Poor.  Overload the welfare system, remove a significant portion of members in our society using obamacare, control every aspect of life, and you are at the doorstep of the New World Order.  Obama means to become the overseer of a global society of human drones.  There are many things he and his cronies have done to hurry this change along, and all should become well aware of what they are.

Obama Administration Thugs Threaten State Department Whistleblower … And Her Kids ~> Video



src=”” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” background=”#333333″ width=”425″ height=”279″ allowFullScreen=”true” allowScriptAccess=”always” FlashVars=”si=254&contentValue=50148587&shareUrl=” />

State Department whistleblower Aurelia Fedenisn, who accused the Obama State Department of covering up eight investigations including accusations of child prostitution, says she is being threatened and so are her kids.

Fedenisn released documents that show the State Department may have covered up allegations of illegal and inappropriate behavior within their ranks.

Now her kids are being threatened.
The PJ Tatler reported, via Free Republic:

The State Department whistleblower is Aurelia Fedenisn. She worked in the department’s inspector general’s office until her retirement in December 2012. According to USA Today, she has sought protection as an official whistleblower after the State Department directly threatened her, once at her home. It threatened her with criminal charges when she turned over documents to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) showing evidence that the department had watered down her report, in which she alleged that the department at the highest levels had scuttled eight investigations into a range of criminal wrongdoing.

Dallas lawyer Damon Mathias, who represents Fedenisn, said Fedenisn hired him after two diplomatic security agents spoke in a threatening manner to her teenage children at her home in a Virginia suburb of Washington. The agents arrived at the home to talk to Fedenisn about documents Fedenisn had given to Cruz and told the teens that they demanded to speak to their mom immediately, Mathias said…

…Mathias says Fedenisn’s claim is that agents from State’s Diplomatic Security and other divisions engaged in very questionable and possibly criminal conduct; the Inspector General has been hampered in performing its oversight role; “and the findings they wanted to put in the report end up being left out,” Mathias said. “So you have a coverup of the coverup.”

When Fedenisn and her lawyers met with lawyers for the Office of the Inspector General, the government lawyers demanded she hand over the documents or they would refer the matter to the Department of Justice and Fedenisn would face criminal prosecution, Mathias said.

“They made it clear that they would go after her criminally,” he said.

“We refused to turn over the documents” and Fedenisn is now seeking whistle-blower protection, he said.

Immigration Bill Easily Clears Key Senate Test

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sweeping immigration legislation has cleared a key Senate hurdle with votes to spare, signaling likely passage later in the week for stepped-up security along the border with Mexico and a chance at citizenship for millions living in the country illegally.

The vote was 67-27, well above the 60 needed to advance.

Immigration Bill Easily Clears Key Senate Test

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, holds a meeting just off the floor of the Senate prior to a vote on a border security amendment to the immigration bill, at the Capitol in Washington, Monday, June 24, 2013. It is a Senate test vote on a bill calling for more than $30 billion worth of new security measures along the border with Mexico and offering a chance at citizenship for millions living in the country illegally. Credit: AP

The vote came as President Barack Obama campaigned from the White House in favor of the measure, while outnumbered conservative critics attacked it without letup in speeches and electronic appeals.

Senate passage on Thursday or Friday would send the issue to the House, where conservative Republicans in the majority oppose citizenship for anyone living in the country illegally.

Immigration-Reform Scare Tactics

The GOP will wither and die, supporters threaten, if it fails to pass reform measures.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.)
John Fund

The scare tactics on the immigration bill moved into a higher gear on Sunday. Senator Chuck Schumer, a member of the Gang of Eight who designed the comprehensive bill now before the Senate, says that Republicans will face massive demonstrations and be politically punished if they fail to pass something similar in the House.

Schumer told Candy Crowley on CNN’s State of the Union that “this has the potential of becoming the next civil-rights movement.” He went on to warn that if Speaker John Boehner tries to bottle up the bill or eliminates a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, “I could see a million people on the mall in Washington — on the platform would not be the usual suspects but the leaders of business, the leaders of the Evangelical movement, the leaders of high tech as well as most Americans pressuring the House to act. I think they’re going to have to act whether they have a majority of Republicans [in the House] or not.”

Speaker Boehner announced last week that he would not support any immigration bill that didn’t accord with the “Hastert Rule,” which holds that a majority of the majority party must support a measure for it to be brought to the House floor.

The very real prospect that House Republicans won’t pass the Senate bill without making major changes of their own has many in the news media warning that failure could mean the very death of the GOP. Sunday, on CBS’s Face the Nation, the first question that host Bob Schieffer asked Alabama senator Jim Sessions, the ranking Republican on the Judiciary Committee and a critic of the Gang of Eight bill, was a blatantly political one:

Do you think Republicans get it on immigration? Because people like Lindsey Graham are saying if you don’t do something, reaching out to Hispanics, you — it might not — you might not need to run anybody for president next time, because with the demographics changing in this country, it’s going to be impossible to elect a Republican president if you don’t get substantial Hispanic support.

Senator Sessions gamely pointed out that a new Congressional Budget Office study has found that the Gang of Eight bill would probably reduce illegal immigration by only 25 percent. “And CBO concludes that the legal immigration will be dramatically increased and we’ll have — in addition to that, we’re going to have lower wages and higher unemployment according to the CBO analysis of this bill,” Sessions said. “Why would any member of Congress want to vote for a bill at a time of high unemployment, falling wages, to bring in a huge surge of new labor that can only hurt the poorest among us the most?”

Polling numbers on immigration vary enough that one can find support for nearly every position on the issue. But what is clear is that the country isn’t waiting with bated breath for a comprehensive immigration bill. In a January 2013 Pew Research survey of voter priorities, immigration came in 17 out of 21 issues, falling below “moral decline” and the “influence of lobbyists.” Only 44 percent of Republicans and 35 percent of Democrats thought it a top priority. In 2007, the last time Congress debated illegal immigration, a full 69 percent of Republicans and 50 percent of Democrats thought it a top priority.

What killed immigration reform then was Ted Kennedy’s insistence on keeping union priorities in the bill, as well the secrecy surrounding the legislation. The bill was written behind closed doors, bypassed the Judiciary Committee, and was rushed to the floor for a vote. Then-senator Pete Domenici of New Mexico, an early backer of the bill, told the New York Times that the secrecy of the process left people confused and “caused it to flop.”

This time around, the bill did go through Judiciary Committee hearings, but the bill that passed that committee has now been superseded by 1,200 pages of amendments offered up by Republican senators Bob Corker of Tennessee and John Hoeven of North Dakota. Senators will barely have time to read much of the bill before the floor vote that Majority Leader Harry Reid has scheduled for June 24.

And it’s not even clear that Hispanics who want immigration reform believe that a path to citizenship is the most important part of any reform package. Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas), the son of a Cuban immigrant, says it’s a myth that Hispanics insist on including amnesty (or something resembling it) in any bill. He told me last week that his own polls showed that 68 percent of Hispanics in Texas supported more border security; when they were asked if they supported a pathway to citizenship or work permits without citizenship, a plurality of 46 percent of Texas Hispanics supported the permit system and only 35 percent favored a pathway to citizenship. “It’s a fraud being perpetrated on Republicans — that citizenship is the linchpin of immigration reform,” he says. “In reality, it’s the linchpin of Democratic efforts to expand their voter base.”

Comprehensive immigration reform is always the path Democrats insist we follow as the price for their backing any reform effort. But there are other ways to approach reform.

Indeed, the cause of reform could be fatally undermined if a comprehensive bill passes the Senate on short notice without adequate debate and little time to explain it. House members will be understandably miffed that they are expected merely to vote on what the Senate dumps into their lap.

It’s telling that the scare tactics deployed by the proponents of comprehensive immigration reform all revolve around politics: massive rallies on the Washington Mall and an angry Hispanic electorate. In reality, it might be the folks using the scare tactics who are the ones running scared. Maybe they’re afraid that the longer their bill is debated and the more sunshine it’s exposed to, the less likely the American people are to support it.

Gun-Rights Rallygoers Defy Local Law, Confront ‘Police State’ Actions

Protesters showed up to a gun-rights rally in Erie, Pa., with their firearms out in the open—purposely defying a local ordinance that prohibits guns at city parks.

“We are American patriots, and we are a force to be reckoned with!” yelled Pastor George Cook of North Bangor, Pa. (350 miles away) at the Perry Square park gazebo Saturday, WSEE-TV reports.

“First, our constitution…says that the right of people to bear arms in defense of themselves and the state shall not be questioned,” said Cook. ”The preemption clause in our state law…says that local towns like Erie can’t make other laws concerning firearms.”

Cook was one of about 80 who showed up to support “Open Carry Pennsylvania.” Erie police estimated there were 15 to 20 people carrying firearms in the crowd, and they issued citations to some of them, noted the Erie Times-News.

Rally organizers tried to get an injunction against the city ordinance, but failed.

More from the Erie Times-News:

Those at the rally carrying guns, both handguns and semiautomatic rifles, are subject to a fine of between $100 and $300 and up to 90 days in prison if they fail to pay the fines.Police walked around the crowd and noted license plate numbers of parked cars in an attempt to identify people carrying weapons. They said they would mail citations to people carrying weapons who were successfully identified.

“They’ve been going around writing down everyone’s license plate number…” said attorney Joshua Prince, a lawyer for Justin Dillon, the founder of Open Carry PA. “They said they’re going to be querying the JNet [Justice Network] system to basically try and do facial recognition…and then proceed from there in issuing citations.”

Prince told WSEE-TV that he hopes to defend those who brought firearms to the rally: “I filed an emergency appeal to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court that has now issued an order to the city to file an answer by June 28th, which is next Friday.

“There’s all types of towns and cities that have actually dismissed their ordinances just for a simple letter from an attorney or the DA saying ‘hey we’re not gonna enforce it.’ Why can’t I get that same support here?” Dillon asked. “I’m hoping and I’m sure that the Supreme Court may probably go on our side.”

As for the police writing down license plate numbers on vehicles parked near the rally, Cook described them as “Mayor [Joe] Sinnott’s private Gestapo force,” according to the Erie Times-News.

Some interaction between police and observers was caught on camera.

“Without any reasonable suspicion you can run license plates?” one observer asked an officer. “Is that your statement?”

When the officer didn’t reply, the observer asked, “You understand the [state] Supreme Court also just recently said that your silence can be used against you.”

One off-camera voice can be heard saying, “Just following orders,” to which one cameraman replied, “Yeah, it didn’t work at Nuremburg, either.”

Other voices say, “This is what a police state looks like” and “Do they have ‘SS’ on them?”

Here’s video of the exchange between the officers and the observers:

Rand Paul Warns: ‘Nothing But Bad’ for Snowden if He ‘Cozies Up’ to the Russians or the Chinese

Paul, who has been a defender of Snowden’s, spoke as the former NSA contractor was en route from Hong Kong to Moscow. Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Paul said Director of National Intelligence James Clapper “lied to Congress…in the name of security” while Snowden “told the truth in the name of privacy.”

“I do think for Mr. Snowden, if he cozies up to the Russian government, it will be nothing but bad for his name in history,” Paul said. “If he goes to an independent third country like Iceland and if he refuses to talk to any sort of formal government about this, I think there’s a chance that he’ll be seen as an advocate of privacy. If he cozies up to either the Russian government, the Chinese government or any of these governments that are perceived still as enemies of ours, I think that will be a real problem for him in history.”

CBSNEWS by SHARYL ATTKISSON (MY TWO SENSE: It’s too bad that journalists/reporters did not speak out when others’ rights were being violated. That unwillingness to defend a document everyone turns to, when personally affected, is a huge part of why this nation is in the shape it is. Defense of another, who is persecuted to any degree by an out-of-control government, whether or not self is also persecuted, is the only weapon we have, and that, when wielded, binds us all together and secures us a free nation. Defense of another, in the name of Founding Principles, is a necessary mandate, and anything less is a compromise we can no longer afford. Once the infrastructure of this once free Republic were negotiated and compromised to any degree, liberty, in its entirety became the very chains and shackles in which we find ourselves today. What happened in Benghazi, September 11, 2012, is a clear reflection of how seditious our government has become; how selfishness and gain are now the measures of success. Liberalism is no longer an ideology that all mankind should be free but now is a collective of incendiary agitators ever ready to subvert by rabble-rousing with those who hate for a living and tear down institutions for the pleasure of seeing them fall. JM)

First State Department Benghazi photos released

src=”” scale=”noscale” salign=”lt” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” background=”#333333″ width=”425″ height=”279″ allowFullScreen=”true” allowScriptAccess=”always” FlashVars=”si=254&&contentValue=50148758&shareUrl=” />

After being sued under Freedom of Information (FOIA) law, the State Department released its first photos Thursday showing the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on Benghazi.

Play Video

Why the Benghazi controversy is “absolutely not” over

According to the watchdog group Judicial Watch, which filed the lawsuit against the government, the seven photos “seem to depict portions of the so-called ‘Special Mission Compound’ in Benghazi, including: what appears to be a burned and ransacked building; at least two burned vehicles; and Arabic graffiti with militant Islamist slogans.”

On their face, the photos seem to provide no great revelations. Nonetheless, the images are the first ones provided by the State Department under FOIA and only after Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit. It’s unclear why the State Department previously withheld the images from public disclosure.

Last year, CBS News filed a FOIA request for the images and other images, video and documents related to the Benghazi terrorist attacks, but the State Department still has not responded to that request.

Scottish Police Worry Breakup of 2 Muslim Paedophile Rings Will “Increase Community Tensions”


There’s so much tiptoeing around this story that you might get the impression that you’re at the Bolshoi Ballet instead of reading an article about the breakup of two major paedo rings.

Unfortunately for the police, the paedos in question appear to originate from a religion whose prophet had a thing for little girls. Naturally the Scottish Express can’t bring itself to say this, the prophet part or the Muslim part. The closest it can come to saying that is to mention that there is an ethnicity involved that “extremist” elements will capitalize on.

And it’s a safe bet that it’s not the Welsh we’re talking of here. (via Religion of Peace)

In another, utterly appalling example of child abuse, two 13-year-old Scots girls were groomed and raped by a network of “numerous” paedophiles across Britain.

This operation resulted in 37 arrests and the identification of 108 further potential victims and perpetrators. Again, all of those involved are still awaiting trial.

The details of the crackdown were revealed by Assistant Chief Constable Malcolm Graham to a Holyrood inquiry into the scale of child abuse. Concern is growing that the problem has been grossly underestimated for years, with police and prosecutors failing to take victims seriously.

Senior officers also fear the involvement of ethnic minority offenders in child sexual exploitation (CSE) will lead to “significant community tension”.

Ah, the dreaded backlash. No sooner does the Religion of Peace do something horrible, than we must all brace for the backlash.

So who are the ethnic offenders? The Express’ paper lips are sealed, but there is one hint.

According to a police source, “There are groups of foreign nationals involved in this and maybe respect for women isn’t seen as being a high priority in their country of origin.”

It’s nice of the Scottish cops to be so understanding of the cultural differences involved.

Mr Graham said: “In two large scale CSE investigations in Scotland a significant proportion of the identified perpetrators were from ethnic minority communities. It is not possible to draw conclusions from this relatively small dataset and more accurate data and wider research is required.

Naturally. We mustn’t jump the gun. Perhaps Mr. Graham would care to expand his dataset by abandoning his daughter in the vicinity of some moderate mosques and seeing how that goes.

“It is acknowledged extremist groups have attempted to associate CSE with wider immigration issues and this has the potential for significant unrest.”

Right, yes. The extremists are the ones who think filling Scotland with people whose religion was founded by a child molester might be a bad idea. The moderates are the ones who want to expand the dataset.

Mr Graham, formerly the top murder detective in Edinburgh, said the force was determined to “tackle this emerging threat to Scotland”.

Just not by talking about it or being extremist about it.

(I did an article on the SNP’s flirtation with Islam a few years ago. These are the wages of it.)

As immigration rules funnel more Muslims to Scotland to replace the native population, the Scottish National Party is aligning itself with an Islamist agenda. Mosques are clashing with traditional pubs. Scottish medical workers have been barred from eating at their desks during Ramadan. The Burka is being promoted and Scottish Muslims have been planning to set up an Islamic state in some remote part of Scotland. But they might as well do it in Glasgow.

THE BLAZE by BECKET ADAMS (MY TWO SENSE: Ted Cruz may be our only gladiator. His voice is the loudest and strongest and I’m wondering where Rand Paul is on this immigration bill. We are in the middle of quick sand, going down, and now that the DC 70 have committed themselves to freedom fighting, in America, we should begin hearing their voices as well.

‘Americans Are Fed Up’: Ted Cruz Rips Republicans and Democrats Over ‘Disaster’ Immigration Bill

For the first time in his political career, Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined conservative talk radio host Rush Limbaugh on Wednesday to discuss the immigration reform bill currently being debated in the U.S. Senate.

Rush Limbaugh and Sen. Ted Cruz Discuss Gang of Eights Immigration Reform Bill

“Sir, you’re the real deal.  You’re fearless. You’re a freshman. You’re acting like you’ve been there three terms,” Limbaugh said.

“As you know, a lot of Americans are fed up. They’re fed up with Democrats and they’re fed up with Republicans. They’re fed up with politicians in Washington who don’t stand for anything,” the Texas senator responded.

“And it’s how we’ve gotten in this mess. It’s how we’ve gotten $17 trillion in debt, and if we keep doing business as usual, it’s how we’re gonna pass yet another amnesty bill that doesn’t fix the problem. And I think Americans are really fed up with that and we need to stand up and stop it,” Sen. Cruz added.

The radio host then asked Sen. Cruz to explain to the audience why certain politicians and pundits are referring to the immigration reform bill as “amnesty.”

“This Gang of Eight bill is a disaster,” Sen. Cruz explained. “What the Gang of Eight bill does is it grants legalization now. It takes everyone who’s here illegally and says, ‘You’re legal,’ and then just like in 1986 it promises, ‘sometime in the future, trust us, wink-wink, we’ll secure the border.’”

“I don’t think the American people are that foolish. You know, fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. If this bill is enacted, it will make the problem worse. If this bill is enacted, in another decade or two we’re going be back here not with 11 million, but with 20 million or 30 million people here illegally.

“This is a broken system.  I think what Americans want is fix the problem, stop playing political games, actually secure the border and make a legal immigration system that works,” he added.

The two continued, discussing everything from the possible impact the bill may have on the national deficit, to the so-called Washington “consultant class” and its support for the bill, to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s curious wish to see the bill passed before July 4th.

Today, Inside They Dedicated A New Statue Of Another American Giant, Fredrick Douglas – A Man Born Into Slavery, But Who Knew Instinctively That He Was Not Born A Slave. No Man Is.

To Keep A Man A Slave You Do Much The Same As The Cruel Circus Masters Did To The Elephant Around The Turn Of Last Century. Clamp Heavy Chains Around Their Legs And Stake Them To The Ground. Then Beat And Terrorize Them. After A While You No Longer Even Have To Stake The Chain, The Elephant Gives Up And Just The Mere Rattle Of The Chain Convinces The Elephant There Is No Hope, So They Give Up And Do What Ever It Is The Circus Requires.


Fredrick Douglas Was Lucky Enough To Live In A House Where He Was Taught To Read, Write And Think. He Knew God Did Not Make Men Masters Over Others. Nor Did He Ever Intend Any Man To Impose Unrighteous Dominion Over Another Man Or Beast.
It Is Time We Remind Ourselves Of This Truth Again And Begin To Rise Up Against The Intimidation Before The Handful Of Peanuts From Our New Political Circus Masters Is Considered A Kindness And Not The Symbol Of Evil Cruelty.


In The Building Behind Me, They Are Now Excusing Storing All Data, Phonecalls, Financial Transactions, Geo Tracking On Every American For Our “Safety” While Allowing Anyone To Cross Our Borders Either On Foot Or In Underground Tunnels Without Any Worry Or Consequence.


They Have Not Suspended Or Fired But Promoted Those At The Irs Who Rattled The Chains Of Control To Any Group That Disagreed With Their Policies, And Now After Pushing Misery And Death Through The So Called Arab Spring In Country After Country They Are Plotting A New War With Syria. This Will Bring Death And Destruction The World Over. We Are Told That We Need To Pick Sides And Arm Those Who Are So Far Down The Scale Of Decency That Even Vladimir Putin Asked Americans If They Even Knew That Those We Are Arming Have Literally Eaten Their Enemies On The Battle Field.


The Fact That He Even Needed To Ask That Question, And That Most Have Never Even Seen The Video Of The Commander Of The Rebel Troops On Tv Engaging In This Ungodly Horror, Is An Inditement Of Our Government Officials And Our Media.



I Am Surrounded Today By Some Modern Day Spiritual Giants. All From Different Faiths, Different Backgrounds And Many Different Views. But We All Have One Thing In Common. We Don’t Recognize Our Country Anymore And Because We Know That God Is Just, We Tremble For Our Childrens Future.


We Wonder, Are We Even Worth Defending Anymore? If So, Why? Who Are We? And Will We Even Notice Or Care When The Chain Is Finally Snapped Around Our Legs.


What Will Be Written About Us? The Greatest Generation Has Passed. We Are Who Historians Will Watch.


Will It Be Said That None Called For Justice Not One Pleaded For Truth. They Trusted In Vanity And Spoke Lies. They Concieved Mischief And Brought Forth Iniquity.


What Is It We Even Believe As A People Anymore? Where Did We Get These Ideas That Now Seem So Popular?


Our Forbears Came To These Shores Not For Free Stuff But For Freedom. The Chance To Make Their Own Way, Create A Different Life. They Came Here Because They Knew That God Made Them Free To Make Their Own Way In Life, Take The Risk, Do Their Best And Take Responsibility For Their Own Lives.


They Came Here Because They Wanted To Serve Him In The Way They Believed, Not As They Were Told.


But How Many Care About Our History?


And, Of Those Who Do Care, How Many Really Still Believe?


Some Things Are Worth Believing In:


That The Little Guy Can Make It,
Every Single Life Has Value And Is Worth Living,
That Honor And Integrity Do Matter,
That Justice Will Prevail – If Not In This Life – Then The Next, And God Does Exist
And What We Do In Our Lives Matters.


It Is The Meek And The Humble That Enherit The Earth. Have We Forgotten?


We Have Declared Ourselves Masters Of The Earth,
Spread Our Troops All Over The World,
Taught The World How To Do Banking Like We Do It Here In America,


Even Though, We Cant Even Master Our Own Homes,
Protect Our Neighborhood
And Simply Balance A Check Book.


How Grotesque & Garish We Must Appear To Those Looking In.


I For One Still Believe In The Silly Notion Of Truth, Justice And The American Way. Since Our Founding A Good Percentage Of Our Fellow Citizens Closed Their Eyes To The Civil Rights Of All Americans.


“I’m Okay, I Dont Want To Think Of The Bad Things Going On, I Am Busy, It Doesnt Effect Me, It Can’t Be That Bad, And Even If It Is, I Am Just One Person And What Can I Do About It Anyway?


Nothing Has Changed. Except The Chairs At The Table.


Someone Has Always Been On The Losing End Of The Stick Of Power. Blacks Are The Most Obvious, The Chineese, The Native American But Lets Not Forget The Irish, The Catholics, The Mormons, The Jews And Now It Seems All Those Of Faith That Will Not Conform.


For Those That Think Men Make Progress Collectively, I Warn You, History Teaches: You Couldn’t Be More Wrong.


We Are Redeemed One Man At A Time. There Is No Family Pass Ticket Or Park Hopping Pass To Life. One Ticket, One Life At A Time.


Man Doesn’t Vanquish Hatred Or Bigotry. The Target Keeps Moving. From The Blacks To The Irish. Aethists To Christians.


But As Always There Are A Few Leaders: Ben Franklin, John Quincy Adams, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Abraham Lincoln, Fredrick Douglas, Booker T Washington, Ghandi And Martin Luther King.


They Know That The March Toward Freedom Never Ends, Man Must Be Ever Vigilant And Pray Less With His Lips And More With His Legs.


They Never Forget That Truth, Justice And Freedom Are The Well Spring From Which The Waters Of Mans Civil Rights Come. And So They Must Be Upheld For All Men – Those You Know, Those You Do Not And Maybe More Importantly They Must Be Upheld For Those Who You Do Know But Do Not Like Or Agree With At All.


If They Are Lost For One, In The End They Are Lost For All.


In The Past These Historic Stands, Which We Now Call Civil Rights Movements, Were Done By A Small But Dedicated Portion Of Our Citizens Which Led To Great Shifts In Our Culture.


But Those Movements Always Came From The Same Institutions … The Church.


And Usually Not The Church With The Popular Preacher,
But The One Who Put It On The Line To Tell The People The Truth.


Preachers Like These Men, Who Know That We Are All Born Free, But That Freedom Comes A Great Price,
A Profound Resposibility …


To Stand Against Injustice, Hatred And Bigotry.


Our Pulpits Have Gone Quiet Out Of Arrogance, Fear And Apathy. Their Faith Is Found In The Wisdom Of Man And Not In The Power Of God.


For Some, Losing Tithing Checks Or The Gold Rolex Watch Has Become More Important Than Losing Mans Freedom.
Whatever The Reason Too Many Are No Longer Willing To Call Evil By Its Name,


There Is No Vision. And When There Is No Vision The People Perish.


I Humbly Suggest To You That Martin Luther King Knew The Answer And He Lost More Than Congregants During His Long March.
Students Are Taught, That His Vision Came From The Ideas Ghandi. Maybe A New Radical 20th Century Progressive Philospher Was The One That Taught Mlk That
“Although We Be Free Of All Men, When We Choose To Make Our Selves Servants To All We Gain The More.”
Let’s Get A Couple Of Things Straight. What Mlk And Ghandi Did Was Not Progressive Or New. It Was An Ancient Idea.


Hollywood, Woodstock Nor The Hippy Culture Was The Source Of Power Of The 1960s Freedom Movement.


God Was.
He Was Leading Those Who Risked Their Lives Over That Bridge In Selma, Not Janice Joplin, Columbia University Or A Labor Union.


It Wasn’t John Lennon That Taught People About Love And Peaceful Resistance, That Job Fell On The Shoulders Of A Jewish Carpenter.


And It Is There That We Will Find The Answers That Will Break The Chains That Are Being Forged For A New Generation Of Slaves.


The Rights That So Many Americans Ignorantly Preach About So Often, Are Not Really Their Rights. They Belong To God And They Are Given To Us For Stewardship. They Are Pretty Important And Obvious. So Obvious That We Used To Say They Were Self Evident.


Meaning That Humans Don’t Need To Be Taught, You Instictively Know That You Have A Right Not To Be Executed Without A Trial, Held Without Charge, Searched Without Warrant Or Spied Upon Without Cause.
The Govenment Is No Longer The Protector Of Those Civil Rights And So We Must Be.


When We Are Told That It Is Okay For The Irs, Epa, Atf, Fbi Or Anyone To Hassle, Threaten Or Intimidate Others Because Of Their Skin Color, Religion Or Political Belief We Stop Being The Country That We All Want To Build


And Start Being The Country The World Should Fear.


The Long Train Of Abuses Regarding These Rights Are The Same Mlk Marched Against And The Very Same Our Dusty Founders Warned Us About Losing.


Men May Make Progress, But Man Never Changes.


Man Loves Power And Money. No Matter The Skin Color, Religion Or Income Level. These Symbols Of Our Nation Make Men Drunk With Power Who Then Justify Their Lust For More By Claiming They Are Public Servants.


The Only Difference Between Las Vegas And Washington Dc Is That At Least Vegas Has The Decency To Admit The Town Is Full Of Hookers And Crooks.


We Must Sober Up And Admit, Too Many Of The Republicans And The Democrats Have Played Us, Lied To Us And Stolen From Us While The Get Away Car Was Driven By The Media. A Media That Can No Longer Claim With A Straight Face The Role Of Journalist.


Journalists Print The Things The Powerful Don’t Want Printed.


What They Do, Is Done By A Public Relations Firm.


Those Pr Firms Will Not Print The Truth About The Average American Who Finds Himself Concerned With The Direction Of Our Country Today. So We Must:


We Are Not Violent,
We Are Not Racist,
We Are Not Anti Immigrant,
We Are Not Anti Government
And We Will Not Be Silent Anymore.


Those Who Wish To Use Unrighteous Dominion Over Mankind Are Not Enemies Of Ours They Are Enemies Of God And He Will Not Be Silent Much Longer Either.


We Will No Longer Accept The Lies, The Corruption, Or The Information And Data Gathering.


It Is Evil.


And We Come Here Today To Send A Message That We Will Surround All Of Those Who Wish To Stand And Break The Cycle Of Corruption.


We Will Use Ourselves As Shields To Protect Those In The System, The Elected Officials Or Whistle Blowers With The Courage To Stand.


We Come Here Today To Respectfully But With The Power Of The Spirit Demand To Be Treated As An Equal Member Of Society.


I Am A Man And I Will Be Treated As Such.


I Answer To Only One King And His Kingdom Will Come, His Will Be Done. We Have Chosen Sides And We Choose God. America As A Nation Must Do The Same As Well.


We Come Today To Declare Our Independence. Reaffirm Our Founding Principles:


We, As A Nation, Acknowledge A Creator;


We Acknowledge That He Gives Certain Natural, Guaranteed Rights To Man;


We Declare That Government Exists Primarily To Protect These Natural, God-Given Rights


He Has Established Right And Wrong
He Is Just And Therefor, Man Must Pay For His Mistakes Either Now On Earth Or Through Gods Justice Later
There Is No Such Thing As Social Justice. Only God Can Balance Things Out


And We Are Not God.
But Honest And Decent Men Can Fight For And Establish Equal Justice
There Is No Such Thing As Collective Salvation
We However Are Going To Be Judged On How We Treat Our Fellow Brothers And Sisters. Thus We Must Serve Them, Help Them With Charity Toward All.
Malice Toward None, Lincoln Said. God Said It Slightly Differently – Vengence Is Mine.


Any One Who Speaks Of Punishing Their Political Enemies In On The Wrong Side. It Is Clearly Evil And We Have A Responsiblitly To Say So.


America It Is Now Your Time To Rise Up And Boldly Declare Those Same Self Evident Truths That Changed The World And Demand That Those Truths Remain The Basis Of Our Laws.


My Civil Rights Will Not Be Trampled, And I Say This Not For Me But For My Children And All Those Who Yearn To Breath Free. Those Who Make Your Apple Products At Foxxcon, Those Who Langish In Prisions In Cuba, North Korea And Venasula.


Those Homosexuals Who Are Stoned To Death In The Streets Of Egypt, Or Iran, While Our So Called Civil Rights Leaders Hold Coffee Clatches With Third Graders In The White House.


We Will Stand Not For Our Job, House Or Income But We Will Standfor Those Immigrants Who Came Her The Right Way And Not Have Their Dreams Destroyed By Increasing Competition At The Lowest Rung Of The Ladder While Keeping The Brightest And Best Minds Out Of The Visa Pool Allowing For Little Competition At The Top.


We Will Not Pervert Womans Rights And Twist It Into A Gross Silent Defense Of Abortion Doctors In Philly And Houston While Turning Our Eyes From The Forgotten Women Who Have Never Had The Civil Right To Walk Alone On A Street Without A Man, Or To Drive A Car In Pakistan Or Saudi Arabia And Even Those Who Now Cower In Fear With Their Faces Covered In States Like Florida, Virginia, New York And Minnisota.


We Will Not Waste Another Second Shadow Boxing The Demons Of The Past When The Fight To End Actual Slavery Is Still Happening Today. Call It What You Will, But Those Who Make Your Ipad In China – Those Who Make Your Cute Little Mao Purses – Are The Very People You Claim To Care So Much About. They Are The Ones Yearning To Breath Free.


And Worse There Is The Oldest Form Of Human Degradation Man Has Ever Known, The Sex Slave Trade That Currently Has In Its Coils Over 2 Million Children. The Biggest Source Of This Evil Is A Wide Open Whole In Our Arizona Border.


We Beg The American People To Wake Up And Help The 8 Year Old Children Being Sold Into Sex Slavery.


The Press May Say How Dare These Men Declare Themselves The Next Martin Luther King Or Civil Rights Leaders.


How Blind To Believe The Civil Rights Movement Ever Ended.


The Civil Rights Movement Never Ends And It Never Will. It Has Been Marching Since The Beginning Of Time. Where Martin Luther King Started Is Where Ghandi Left Off, And Where He Started, Abe Lincoln Left Off And Before That Whitfield All The Way Back To Moses. God Has Not Moved. We Have.


But It Is Never Too Late. We Are Not At The Mercy Of These Events. We Can Alter The Course Of History. We Can Stand Against The Dangerous Arc Of This Story.


But We Need People Who Are Willing To Speak Truth.
The Last Century Was A Century Of Genocide. A Century Where Collectivist, National Socialist, And Communist Evil Rose Up Again And Again… Swallowing Up The Lives Of Millions.


It Happens Every Time Man Says The Collective Is More Important Than The Right Of The Individual. That One Phrase Becomes In The End – Everytime – A Licence To Kill Anyone Deemed Standing In The Way Of Progress.


But Evil Met Its Match. Goodness Eventually Prevailed. People Like Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Martin Luther King Jr. And Lech Walesa And Mother Theresa Awoke The World.


They Gave Their Lives To The Pursuit Of Human Rights. They Took The Side Of Justice Against Injustice, They Held Aloft The Torch Of Freedom To Push Out The Darkness Of Hate.


These Men And Women Lived Difficult Lives. They Often Lived Shortened Lives. They Were Often Born To Relative Privilege, But Willing To Take On Suffering.


They Did Want Not To Martyr Themselves. They Would Have Happily Lived To The End Of Their Natural Lives In Comfort… But To The Righteous, There Is No Comfort When Evil Has Taken Root.


But The Cause Of Human Rights Has Been Taken Over By Organizations Who Share Little With The Individuals Who Led The Movement.


Human Rights Was Once A Cry For Justice. Now It Used As A Threat.


These Organizations Have Become Bullies And Grotesque Parodies Of The Principles They Pretend To Represent.


They Criticize Free Nations And Spare The Unfree. They Denounce Nations Like Israel And America, Who Have High Standards For Freedom, And Leave Alone Nations That Have No Freedom At All. They Are Nearly Comical In Their Double-Standards.


They Are No More Than The Enforcers Or The Attack Dogs Of Those Who Wish To Keep Men Confined In Spaces They Design.
Whatever Moral Force They Once Had Is Spent. Their Time Is Up. And So, We Dismiss Them.


Today, We Take Back The Phrase “Human Rights” And Place It Where It Belongs, As The First Half Of God’s Plan For Humanity. The Second Half Is Responsibility.


If We Want To Be Endowed With Rights – Real Human Rights, We Have To Act With Responsibility. We Must Not Be Comfortable With Rights. We Must Be Comfortable With Responsibility.


Who Will Protect Your Rights Better? A King, President Or You?


Who Will Protect The Truth? A Reporter, A Labor Union Or You?


Who Will Protect And Teach Your Children To Seek Truth? A Textbook Committee, An Education Bureaucrat, Or You?


Did A Commission Of Wise Men Stop The Holocaust? Did A Committee Of Congress End Jim Crow?


No. In Each Case, The Work Was Done By Individuals Who Would Not Abide Convenient Lies.


They Saw Injustice And They Called It Out. They Saw Their Nation Wage War Against A Single Group And They Said “Not In My Name.” They Didn’t Wait For The Conventions Of Society To Catch Up To God’s Laws. They Pushed. They Pressed. And They Were Victorious.


Each Of Us Have Been Waiting For A Leader To Rise From Among Us. And None Have. How Many Have Been Called And Refused To Serve? How Many Must Have Failed To Heed The Call For The Lord To Make It All The Way Down To Us?


I Pray Now That Those Who Have Heard The Call To Rise Up In The Tradition Of Peaceful Resistance Do So Now Before, As It Was With Bonhoeffer, It Is Too Late.


I Beg Those With Eyes And Ears To Heed The Call And Begin To Train Under The Exact System Used By Mlk. Search His Words Out. You Will Find That Your History Professors And Civil Rights Activists Left Out The Real Author Of The Words Of Ghandi, King And Bonhoeffer.


Read Them, Ponder Them And Risk Living Them. Even Though They Will Make You A Target Of The Nsa, Having Your Name On Their List As An Enemy May In The End Be The Way Your Name Is Forever Etched In His Book Of Life.


Pastors, Priests And Rabbis, I Challenge You. What Have You Done With Your Knowledge And Priesthood Power That Those Without Have Not Done This Week. If You Can Not Answer That With Power Every Day, What Does That Say About You?
Average Citizens And College Students. I Challenge You. Martin Luther King Didn’t Take A Class, Get A Certificate And A Bunch Of Permits. He Saw Injustice, Studied Eternal Truths, Excersized Disapline And Marched.


If You Don’t Find A Leader Perhaps It Is Because You Were Meant To Lead.


Christians, I Believe In The Free Market. If Your Preacher Is Too Afraid To Preach It From The Pulpit, Maybe You Should Preach It From The Street Corner. Many Are Called. Will You Answer?


Our Spiritual Body Is Out Of Shape And We Need Intensive Training Right Now.


Get Back To God


And Know That Somethings Are True And Worth Believing In.


The Good Guys Do Win In The End. Evil Does Not Stand Unless Good Men Never Rise Up.


The Time Is Now And We Are The People The World Is Waiting For. We Must Never Stop Being The Shore That Others Can Come To For Shelter And Hope.


But To Do So We Must Reliagn Ourselves With Truth And Rise Up And Stand.


This Is The Vision.


We Must Preach Good Tidings To The Meek, Bind Up The Brokenhearted, And Proclaim Liberty To Those Held Captive. To Declare Vengence Belongs To God And God Alone.


We Must Give Unto Those Who Mourn — Beauty For Ashes And Water The Trees Of Righteousness.


We Shall Not Perish


I Can’t Help That Most Of Us Don’t Like To Hear The Truth, But Hear It We Must: George Washington Told Us Religion And Morality Are The Only Stable And Lasting Basis Of Individual Life And Public Policy. If We Are To Survive They Must Be Part Of Our Public Policy Rather Than Driven From It


It Is No Longer Enough To Just Be A Good Person, We Must Work To Be The Next Abraham Lincoln Or Martin Luther King. It Is Noble To Strive To Be The Size Of The Bronze Giant They Dedicated This Morning In The Building Behind Me. Fredrick Douglas’ Time Was In The 1800, Kings Time Has Passed. This Is Our Time, This Is The Next Long March Toward Civil Rights And We Shall Overcome.


Stand Without Fear, Lock Arms And Stare Down The Bullies That Wish To Enslave Mankind Yet Again.


Honor, Courage And Love Are What Is Required And They Are Contageous, Spread The Word And Proclaim Liberty Throughout The Land.


“Let Us, Today, Raise A Standard To Which The Wise And Honest Can Repair; The Rest Is In The Hands Of God

NSA Deception Operation? Questions Surround Leaked PRISM Document’s Authenticity

Was Edward Snowden spotted before he decided to leak documents, and set up by the NSA?





“I can’t in good conscience allow the US government to destroy privacy, Internet freedom and basic liberties for people around the world with this massive surveillance machine they’re secretly building.” – Edward Snowden


Intelligence services have been feeding false information to known enemy informants in their own ranks for a long time, and they are very good at it.


Today, the potential whistleblower is one of the most dangerous informants an intelligence service can confront.


Was Edward Snowden spotted before he decided to leak documents, and set up by the NSA?


Substantial evidence supports the possibility that he was. Numerous questions cast doubt on the authenticity of the Power Point slide show describing PRISM, but the UK Guardian has not seen fit to release it to the public. Perhaps Glenn Greenwald should anonymously leak this file: In the words of Snowden himself, “The public needs to decide.”


Was Edward Snowden under surveillance at intelligence contractor Booz Allen in advance of releasing the PRISM document?


In the wake of the Wikileaks scandals, the U.S. intelligence community has answered “Who shall watch the watchmen?” by introducing active surveillance and detailed profiling of their own analysts and contractors, looking for potential whistleblowers.[1] By his own account, Snowden often discussed perceived Agency wrongdoing with his co-workers, which suggests that he should have been profiled and flagged as a potential leaker by the NSA’s internal surveillance process.


Interviewd by Glenn Greenwald, Snowden described his workplace behavior in the time leading up to his decision to leak documents:


“When you see everything, you see them on a more frequent basis and you recognize that some of these things are actually abuses, and when you talk about them in a place like this, were this is the normal state of business, people tend not to take them very seriously and move on from them. But over time that awareness of wrongdoing sort of builds up and you feel compelled to talk about it, and the more you talk about it, the more you’re ignored, the more you’re told it’s not a problem, until eventually you realize that these things need to be determined by the public, not by somebody who is simply hired by the government.”[2]


Questioning The Document


Classified DoD briefing files are created to meet formal style specifications and are subject to stringent internal reviews. After the publication of pages from the PRISM presentation, independent analysts were quick to notice and report substantial deficiencies in the document.[3] Others have expressed serious doubts about the PRISM slide show’s pedigree, including the NSA’s former top attorney:


“Stewart Baker, the NSA’s general counsel in the 1990s and now an attorney at Steptoe and Johnson, said he was not familiar with PRISM or similar government activity, but the leaked Powerpoint presentation sounds “flaky,” as do the initial reports.

“The Powerpoint is suffused with a kind of hype that makes it sound more like a marketing pitch than a briefing — we don’t know what its provenance is and we don’t know the full context,” Baker said. He added, referring to the Post’s coverage: “It looks rushed and it looks wrong.” – Declan McCullagh, Wired, June 7, 2013[4]


The logos of major U.S. IT and communication service providers are splashed across the top of PRISM power point slides like sponsor patches on a NASCAR driver’s jacket. Vendor logos often do appear next to product illustrations in DoD briefing documents, and are sometimes used to indicate a vendor’s position in process or procurement flow charts. But the “ad banner” format present in the leaked PRISM slides is very unusual and apparently unique to the PRISM document. All of the vendors named have vehemently denied knowledge of the PRISM program described in the slides.[5] Some of these denials, such as those by Twitter and Google, are from companies which have previously fought court battles against arbitrary disclosure of their users’ data to Federal agencies.[6]


A second PRISM?


Unclassified documents available on the Internet identify a completely different PRISM program, a powerful integrated network communications tool for Department of Homeland Security counter-terrorism crisis management. This PRISM integrates incident reporting, GPS tracking of emergency service and law enforcement vehicles, “outbound 911″ public alert networks, CBN and other technical sensor data, etc. A detailed, unclassified 2004 description of the “DHS PRISM” is available at Cryptome.[7] A 2007 report from the RAND Corporation defines PRISM as a “Planning Tool for Resource Integration, Synchronization, and Management”[8]. It seems unlikely that two network-centric programs as large and different as the DHS and NSA PRISMs, both operating inside the United States, would bear the same name. Only Monty Python calls everyone Bruce “to avoid confusion.”


Would the NSA lie to us?


The National Security Administration is one of the country’s most officially secretive agencies. In the Washington press corps, its popular nicknames have included “No Such Agency” and the “Never Say Anything” agency.


It is against long standing Agency policy to comment directly on any classified matter, and its Directors have consistently refused to confirm or deny any Agency activity when questioned by the press. But when the UK Guardian broke the story of the PRISM leak, the Director of National Intelligence promptly confirmed the document as authentic, calling the leak “reprehensible”:


“The unauthorized disclosure of information about this important and entirely legal program is reprehensible and risks important protections for the security of Americans.” – James R. Clapper, Director of National Intelligence[9]


This very unusual confirmation raises more questions about the PRISM document than it answers.


Is it possible that the PRISM leak was set up by the NSA as a deception operation in support of the Obama Administration’s ongoing wars against whistleblowers and the 4th Amendment? Documents from Federal intelligence contractor HBGary, published in 2011 by anonymous hackers, include a Power Point presentation proposing methods for attacking Wikileaks, and this document names Glenn Greenwald, who broke the PRISM story, as a specific target:


“The presentation, which has been seen by The Independent, recommends a multi-pronged assault on WikiLeaks including deliberately submitting false documents to the website to undermine its credibility, pioneering cyber attacks to expose who the leakers to WikiLeaks are and going after sympathetic journalists.

“One of those mentioned is Glenn Greenwald, a pro-WikiLeaks reporter in the US. Writing on Greenwald stated that his initial reaction was “to scoff at its absurdity.” – Jerome Taylor, The Independent[10]


The UK Guardian released the PRISM story on the opening day of PFC Bradley Manning’s court martial. The leaked PRISM document will certainly influence public debate on both whistleblower protections and State surveillance – and influence is one of our intelligence community’s regular daily chores. Some commentators have been very quick to present forceful talking points in favor of free and unrestrained State surveillance[11], and there is growing consensus that reports depicting PRISM as a mass domestic surveillance dragnet were a false alarm. The Washington Post, which broke the story at the same time as the UK Guardian, has walked back its position on the civil rights implications of the PRISM materials.[12] Meanwhile, it seems that everyone has forgotten about Romas/COIN.


Universal Surveillance: Romas/COIN, Odyssey and beyond


The same security breach at HBGary that revealed formal proposals to plant false leaks and target reporter Glenn Greenwald personally, also disclosed the existence of a real surveillance program with dramatically more dangerous civil liberty implications than PRISM: Romas/COIN, and its planned successor, Odyssey. Barrett Brown summarizes what is known about this program in an article on the Project PM website:


“A successful bid for the relevant contract was seen to require the combined capabilities of perhaps a dozen firms – capabilities whereby millions of conversations can be monitored and automatically analyzed, whereby a wide range of personal data can be obtained and stored in secret, and whereby some unknown degree of information can be released to a given population through a variety of means and without any hint that the actual source is U.S. military intelligence. All this is merely in addition to whichever additional capabilities are not evident from the limited description available, with the program as a whole presumably being operated in conjunction with other surveillance and propaganda assets controlled by the U.S. and its partners.”[13]


According to its internal e-mail from 2010 and 2011, HBGary was a prime contractor coordinating bids from Google, Apple, AT&T and others to build an expanded, upgraded version of the Romas/COIN information warfare system. Minor publicity attending the naming of these high profile vendors in the HBGary documents may have inspired the NASCAR-style sponsor logos decorating the dubious PRISM slides.


When HBGary’s e-mails were disclosed, the Odyssey bid was on hold with HBGary and its partners waiting for a revision in program requirements from the DoD. Two years have passed since HBGary was preparing to bid against Northrop Grumman for the prime contractor position on the Odyssey program. Odyssey should now be completed or nearing completion.


Is it possible that the PRISM leak was intended to mislead the American people into dramatically under-estimating the real domestic surveillance capabilities of our National Security Agency? You might well think so, but this reporter could not possibly comment.

BREITBART by MIKE FLYNN (MY TWO SENSE: Remember when obama wrote an executive order removing our right to gather near any politician or on federal grounds that belong to the People? This EO was after the Tea Party protest rally against obamacare and around the same time obama publicly asked children and adults to send the names and addresses of anyone known to be against obamacare? He asked for friends and relatives be turned in so that he could “explain” the bill to them, thereby removing their angst? In no way was this evil man ever eligible to be a US president! He is a traitor, and was from the first day in office! JM) )

Capitol Hill Police Block Tea Party Activists from Immigration Rally

Capitol Hill police are trying to block activists attending Wednesday’s “Audit the IRS” rally from also attending a nearly day-long press conference on immigration, hosted by Reps. Steve King and Louie Gohmert. The IRS rally is on the west side of the Capitol, while the immigration event is on the east side. Organizers for the IRS event were told by Hill police that “your people” can only assemble on the west side. Organizers were told to remove the activists from the immigration event.

Capitol Hill police left a voicemail for Kevin Mooneyhan, Deputy Executive Director of Tea Party Patriots, saying that “your people” only are permitted to assemble for the event on the west side of the Capitol. The activists’ presence at the immigration event on the east side, supposedly violates the terms of the Tea Party’s permit. Mooneyhan was instructed to move any activists who planned on attending the Tea Party rally away from the immigration event.

Keep in mind, the immigration event is hosted by sitting members of Congress. The notion that citizens can’t attend an event featuring duly elected Representatives in a public space is absurd.

“The Capitol police are violating our rights to assembly and association,” Mooneyhan told Breitbart News. “How does our permit limit the rights of individuals to attend public events. It’s intimidation.”

Mooneyhan added, “How do they even know these are ‘our people?’ Did they look them up through PRISM?” PRISM is the controversial NSA program that reportedly tracks internet and email communication.

UPDATE: According to Mooneyhan and Breitbart News’ Matthew Boyle, the Capitol Hill police have now backed off their attempts to block activists from attending the immigration rally.

Syrian forces training to storm Israel’s border

Comes amid stepped up U.S. support for ‘rebels’

TEL AVIV – Thousands of Syrians are currently training in Iran to serve as a force ready to storm Israel’s northern Golan Heights, according to informed Middle Eastern security officials.

The officials said between 3,000 and 5,000 Syrian men were being trained in the event Syrian President Bashar al-Assad decides to open a front against the Golan Heights, which borders Syria.

The training is being overseen by the Al Quds Force, the elite unit of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard responsible for the country’s extraterritorial operations, the sources said.

The Syrian forces are slated to return to their country next month, the sources added.

This is not the first report of Iran aiding Syria in preparations for ground attacks against Israel.

In May, WND reported the Iranian-backed Hezbollah was establishing training camps near the Syrian capital of Damascus to prepare for possible guerrilla warfare targeting the Golan Heights, according to informed Middle Eastern security officials.

The officials said the camps are training Palestinian groups as well as special units connected to Assad’s Baath party for operations against Israel if such actions are green-lighted by Syria in the near future.

The officials said that for the time being, Russia has urged Assad against taking any action targeting Israel.

The reports come as the U.K. Independent reported on a purported military strategy taken by Iran to send a first contingent of 4,000 Iranian Revolutionary Guards to Syria in support of Assad’s drive to defeat the so-called rebels.

On Saturday, the New York Times reported that as a way to keep the pressure on Assad, American warplanes and antimissile batteries will remain in Jordan following a military drill currently underway.

The Times further reported on CIA training for the rebels in Jordan under a covert program as well as a U.S. campaign to send weapons to the rebels via Jordan.

The Washington Post further reported on a U.S. decision to send weapons to the rebels through Turkey.

THE BLAZE by DAVE URBANSKI (MY TWO SENSE: What a double-dealing, lying sack of you know what, is playing rich with a G-u-N!! OMG! What more proof does anyone need that this Administration would explode if any members would tell the truth for a change. Not only does bobama set the national standard for ethics and morality, he and his, are playing the parental game of “Do As I Say, Not As I Do,” the whole time they’re not playing “Hide The Truth.” Obviously they are all gathering as much power and wealth as they can, and this “Me” generation is right in there giving it all up to the big guys in the red diapers. JM)


‘You Should Be Suspended’: Obama Skewered for Playing with an Object That’s Spelled Trouble for Many School Kids



Considering the flurry of punitive measures taken against youngsters lately who dare:



And it’s no surprise that President Obama is getting roundly ridiculed for the photo of him brandishing a pretty lethal-looking water gun during daughter Sasha’s birthday party at Camp David.


The 2011 photo is part of a White House web site gallery that shows Obama just “being a dad” in honor of Father’s Day:


Obama Ridiculed for Photo of Him Playing with Water Gun

Most prominent of the mockers was Laura Ingraham, who tweeted:

She was joined by a chorus of fellow “isn’t this ironic” revelers:

The Top 20 Subversive Goals for the U.S.A.

As we list just 20 of the 45 subversive goals here, ask yourself if the entire Democrat Political Party Machine and some of our Republican politicians, known as RINOs, are complicit in carrying out the schemes of the radical subversives detailed in the official Congressional Record from 1963:
Note: The underlined and italicized sections below are the actual goals of the subversive entities listed in the Congressional Record of 1963. The content between the [brackets] expounds on further research documented from numerous sources since the goals were originally exposed.

GOAL: Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press. [Their goal over the past seven decades was to pervert the minds of the American people to cause a rejection of our traditional American Judeo-Christian cultural heritage in order to allow easy accomplishment of their objectives to “FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM” America from within.]



GOAL: Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV. [They executed a multifaceted attack to demoralize the citizenry so their goals toFUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM” the American culture away from its Judeo-Christian heritage could be implemented without resistance. Don’t you agree that sick perverse content is ingrained into prime-time TV, pop music and in print?]


GOAL: Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”  [The subversives enacted a plan several decades ago to indoctrinate all American children in government schools with a scheme called “Safe Sex” to promote sexual promiscuity with the mantra “you’re going to use each other for sex anyway, so use a condom.” 





The Artificial Contraception Mandate: 


Payback to the Abortion Industrial Complex



This message is for both Pro-Life and Pro-Choice Americans because the undeniable facts presented herein are straight forward and given without judgement. The subversives know that no child will use “artificial contraception” correctly 100% of the time and thus every incident of misuse exposes “Safe Sex” practitioners to the resulting Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) and unplanned pregnancy risks. Now the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that 80% of sexually promiscuous people will acquire the incurable HPV STD of which condoms are ineffective at eliminating the risk.

GOAL: Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for [our] propaganda [designed to “FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM” the American people away from their Judeo-Christian heritage and Capitalist economic system]. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations [unions]. Put the party line in textbooks.

Note: Now 89% of our children attend government schools. Of the 99,000+ government schools in America tens of thousands are failing or poorly performing systems. These failing government schools result in a 30% national dropout rate and fail to teach 65% of our students that do graduate to read at the 12th Grade level. 

Big Money Union Boss:
We are Only About Power and Money

Here is a SHOCKING 1 minute video where a Big Money Teacher Union Boss proclaims that quality schools and educating our children is not their goal. NO, he clearly states that POWER is their ultimate weapon against their enemies and INDOCTRINATING our children with their Liberal social agenda is their goal!

Secular Humanism Forced On Our Children

Here is a summarized paraphrase of the writings of the subversives that infiltrated the ranks of early government education planners as they arrogantly proclaimed:

places of worship only have children for 1 hour per week, while we have them 5 full days per week as captive audiences in our mandatory government schools; we will control the children and wean them away from the Judeo-Christian influence of their parents.

In this next video you will hear an American expound on the outrageous fact of Secularist Humanist indoctrination in America. Won’t you agree that this represents the voice of millions of American citizens that are finally hearing these truths for the first time?

GOAL: Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce [a plank of Humanist Manifesto II]Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to the suppressive influence of parents. [The family unit consisting of a mother, father and children is the greatest obstacle to achieving their subversive goals to FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM” the American culture, so they must tear apart families and encourage policies that cause children to be born out of wedlock and raised in single parent homes.

The Fundamental Transformation of the Family Unit


Question: Would you agree that the subversive goal to “FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM” the family unit worked exceedingly well because children raised in fatherless homes skyrocketed from a low 6% in 1960 to the current 43% of all households and a shocking 70% in our black communities? Check out this 1 minute video to learn the real statistics about the devastation this is causing on our our society.

The results have been large numbers of teen pregnancies annually and continuously increasing numbers of fatherless homes; furthermore, the “try it before you buy it” sexual mentality is gradually eliminating marriage from our society and thus furthering the objectives of the subversives to “FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM” Americans away from our Judeo-Christian heritage. As you can see they have been horrifyingly successful at dismantling the traditional family unit consisting of husband, wife and children.

GOAL: Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press. [Their goal over the past seven decades was to pervert the minds of the American people to cause a rejection of our traditional American Judeo-Christian cultural heritage in order to allow easy accomplishment of their objectives to “FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM” America from within.]



GOAL: Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV. [They executed a multifaceted attack to demoralize the citizenry so their goals toFUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM” the American culture away from its Judeo-Christian heritage could be implemented without resistance.

Video Warning:


Parental Discretion Required


The Promiscuous Sex Culture 

The results have been large numbers of teen pregnancies annually and continuously increasing numbers of fatherless homes; furthermore, the “try it before you buy it” sexual mentality is gradually eliminating marriage from our society and thus furthering the objectives of the subversives to “FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM” Americans away from our Judeo-Christian heritage. As you can see they have been horrifyingly successful at dismantling the traditional family unit consisting of husband, wife and children.

The Constitutional Right to Kill Americans?

The subversives devised a plan to teach several generations of Americans that it is permissible to kill unborn American citizens, thus terminating their rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The intent of the subversives was to totally demoralize the entire nation, and we explain why in our FREE report. Our report also links to a video from an ex-subversive agent revealing that his hierarchy considered the demoralization of America complete by 1985. Do you agree? Let’s look a little further before you answer.

The Power of the Abortion Industrial Complex

Our report details how the Abortion Industrial Complex pressures government officials to promote Safe Sex to children in order to drum up new clients via the resulting unplanned pregnancies when artificial contraception is misused. Power-players in this industry know that children will not use artificial contraception correctly but promoting the government sponsored “Safe Sex” propaganda will give them a false sense of security. This 3 minute video clip provides an important but brief explanation from an ex-clinic director exposing their goal of 3-5 abortions per each girl aged 13-18. ]

GOAL: Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States [These subversive entities have accomplished this goal by infiltrating the major American political parties with their operatives and sympathizers. They also took control of political ideological platforms to meet their objectives to “FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM” the American culture away from its Judeo-Christian heritage and Capitalist economic structure.]

The Democrat Party Rejects God and Israel

GOAL: Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights. [Over the past several decades these subversive elements infiltrated the Judicial Branch with activist judges that illegally “legislate from the bench” and provide unchallenged FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION of the American culture away from its Judeo-Christian heritage.]



GOAL: Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, and policymaking positions. [These subversives gradually work to advance their operatives and sympathizers into positions of leadership. They use the Mainstream Media (MSM) news outlets as their indoctrinating propaganda machine to “FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM” Americans away from our Judeo-Christian heritage and Capitalist economic structure.]

Obama gun-runners ‘got away with it’

Critics say intimidation keeps shops, others, from complaining about lack of progress

Published: 12 hours ago

A congressional committee chaired by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., may have moved on to other Obama administration scandals, but Arizonans still want answers to the Fast and Furious gun-running project that sent thousands of weapons to drug lords in Mexico.

Will they get them?

Not if a reported conspiracy of intimidation and enforced silence wins.

Arizona State Rifle and Pistol Association President Noble Hathaway said it angers Arizonans that it looks like the federal officials involved with Fast and Furious “got away with it.”

“To Arizonan’s it looks like they all got promotions and were commended for executing this scheme. I hope I am wrong but that is the appearance it had,” Hathaway said.

“By having the top people in management saying they did not know about it, this is worse than just saying they made a mistake and moving on. Not many in this administration preach personal responsibility though so it’s par for the course,” Hathaway said.

A former U. S. intelligence and State Department Security officer who still has connections in the State Department says he knows why “they got away with it.”

The operative, who asked not to be named, said silence is part of the deal.

“It is highly likely that gun shops in Arizona were forced to assist the U. S. government [in] getting the Fast and Furious guns and ammunition out of the country into Mexico,” he said. “As a result, the gun shops don’t dare elucidate in public on this issue.”

He said many of Arizona’s gun shops were intimidated into cooperating with the federal government and now are being intimidated into silence.

“The government intimidation process included a threat to restrict gun shops’ acquisition of these products through stiffer regulations of the products. This was done by executive action,” he said.

There is evidence that the former intelligence operative and security officer’s claims are on target.

A gun shop owner who declined to allow WND to use his name said he believes that the reason the issue has faded from public and that no gun shops will talk to the media is political pressure.

One gun shop owner refused to speak on record and referred WND to House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform spokeswoman Becca Watkins.

WND contacted several gun shops in the Phoenix and Tucson areas and all but one declined to be interviewed about the Fast and Furious investigation. Their response was, “We’re not interested.”

Hathaway says he’s aware that other issues have taken center stage in the country, but because Arizonans want answers, he wants the Fast and Furious investigation to remain alive.

“I hope that after all the other government scandals have been resolved that some focus will again be turned to this issue. Its just one more reason that the U.S. citizen is becoming very distrustful of their government,” Hathaway said.

“In this instance (it’s the government) wanting to keep the honest citizen from owning a certain firearm but giving 2,000 of them to the drug cartels and bandits south of the border. Go figure,” Hathaway said.

One gun shop owner was willing to go on the record. Black Weapons Armory spokesman Tommy Rompel said he believes some firearms dealers refused to talk to the media because they fear the media more than the government.

“My sense is that they’re paranoid about talking to the press. They’re afraid the media will take their words out of context,” Rompel said.

Hathaway said even though Fast and Furious it not in the headlines every night, “I believe we Arizonans are still concerned with this.”

“I would say we are still vigilant on this matter and have not forgotten this misguided venture by the Justice Department,” Hathaway said.

Hathaway says the people of his state have a practical reason to be concerned.

“We are the ones most likely to be killed by this bad element south of our borders which had so many guns put in their hands by the U.S.,” Hathaway said.

He said he doesn’t believe more such sales are occurring.

“Every dealer I knew and do know was and is very conscious of not putting firearms in the hands of drug dealers and other vermin,” he said. But the drug dealers now already have the guns.

He said, “We want good citizens to be armed and our families protected from these violent people operating in and out of our state.”

BREITBART by MIKE FLYNN (MY TWO SENSE: EIT functions as a coalition of politically motivated minority groups and others who support the President’s amnesty bill. The Huffington Post can no longer call itself a “news” medium as the author of the article was dishonest, leading, and had a progressive political agenda. Shame on Huff Post. It is now among the ranks of the gossip rags sold at the checkout line in grocery stores. Also deserving a spankin’ is and JM)

Evangelical Group Pushing Immigration Reform Doesn’t Legally Exist

Late last week, The Huffington Post reported that the Evangelical Immigration Table, a coalition of evangelicals supporting the Senate immigration bill, had announced a $250,000 ad buy in support of the legislation. It was part of the Table’s 92-day Pray for Reform campaign that also included newspaper and radio ads. Curiously, however, the Evangelical Immigration Table doesn’t legally exist as an incorporated political entity or non-profit organization.

On Thursday, Breitbart News contacted the Evangelical Immigration Table (EIT), asking about the organization’s structure, how it is governed and where it receives funding. The organization responded Friday in an email to Breitbart News:

The Evangelical Immigration Table functions as a coalition of partners and does not exist as its own non-profit.

The principal organizations that serve as the coalition’s leadership are listed on our website and include Bread for the World, the Christian Community Development Association, CLUE Orange County, Esperanza, the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, the National Association of Evangelicals, the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, the National Latino Evangelical Coalition, Sojourners, World Relief and World Vision.

That invites an obvious question: Who paid for its ad campaign? The email continued:

The organizations that make up the leadership of the Table are predominantly 501(c)3’s but some have affiliated 501(c)4’s.

Funding for our work comes from a variety of sources including the organizations that make up the leadership of the Table as well as other individuals and institutions that believe in our message.

Early in the formation of the Table’s work, the leadership sought a neutral third-party institution, the National Immigration Forum, to help facilitate our work.

So, the EIT is made up of a coalition of (c)3’s and (c)4’s but isn’t itself a legal non-profit organization or corporation. How did it launch the ad campaign reported in the Huffington Post? Loose, informal coalitions cannot purchase advertising. There are also strict limitations on what activities (c)3’s and (c)4’s can undertake, and clear prohibitions on them coordinating on an issue campaign.

EIT says it selected National Immigration Forum to “facilitate” its work. That statement makes it likely that the ad campaign was paid for by NIF. They are certainly free to undertake an issue ad campaign, but not in someone else’s name.

Most Americans, including Evangelicals, support reforming our nation’s immigration system. That isn’t the same as supporting the legislation currently in the Senate. The members of the Evangelical Immigration Table may believe the Senate bill is the best course of action. They should, however, make that support known in a transparent way.
