Why Secession And Revolution Are Not The Best Ideas For The United States
NewsFocus.org, Op-Ed by Tim Watts - 111812

The idea has been floated that states should secede from the union and we should have a new American Revolution. Let me offer a few reasons why that is not our best option and should be a very last resort. First off, the only thing standing in the way of the new world order is the heavily armed people of the US. The criminals behind the evil NWO, like the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers, would like nothing more than to dissolve the United States. That makes their job that much easier.

Remember our forefathers' warning, "United we stand, but divided we fall?" Secession plays right into the hands of the new world order crowd. It's what they want, to destroy the union first and then pick us all off one by one. Our strength is our unity and they know that.

As for the 2nd American Revolution, those advocating such an instant bloodbath forget one thing, it's not an even fight.

When our forefathers fought against the British crown, the fight was somewhat of a level playing field as both sides fought with muskets and cannons. Today, that is not the case due to an incredible arsenal of high-tech weaponry and biological agents available to the powers that control the shadow government of the US. The 2012 NDAA insured that military force can now be used against "we the people" like it has never been used before. Last time I checked, they had tanks, fighter jets and helicopter gunships. Not an even fight by any means.

The addition of HR 658 and its 30,000 drones over America poses the most serious threat of all, because every home in America was GPS'd during the last census. Long story short, they have the coordinates to bomb your ass back into the stone age from 30,000 feet. You'll never see it coming. Sure we have lots of guns, but the first revolution was said to be fought by only 3% of the populace. Even if you bump that figure up today, it is still a lopsided fight that could end ugly, in a real hurry.

So please think about these things before you jump into something you can never retreat from. Talk of secession and armed revolution at this juncture in time only aids those wanting to divide and conquer this nation. It should be a last resort only, not a first strike. There are still other avenues to be traveled first, rather than just jumping emotionally right off the bridge into complete chaos.

Please don't get me wrong, we never give up the fight, but we also never let a superior foe force us into a fight that we are physically not ready for. Any military leader will attest to that. Those wishing for secession and revolution need to think these salient points through, very carefully, before acting impetuously with rash emotion, instead of reasoned intellect.

Again, dissolving the United States is their goal. Killing opponents of the new world order is their fervent dream. Don't let them manipulate your emotions to serve their agenda. Think first before you throw the baby out with the bathwater. Just sayin'.

20 Lies Everyone Should Know About

Why Are We Still In Afghanistan If Osama Is Dead?
Does Heroin Trade Have Anything To Do With Occupation?
NewsFocus.org, Op-Ed by Tim Watts - 120112

I never thought that in my lifetime I would ever see a war that would outlast the Viet Nam War. How pitifully wrong I was.

Like all wars, you have to question the political and financial motivation, the latter being the most prominent impetus for war. With that said, we didn't attack Afghanistan because the Taliban wouldn't turn Osama bin Laden over. We did it for pure imperial, capitalist exploitation. The facts are glaring.

One of the first things that Bush and Cheney did after stealing office was to invite the Taliban to the US to discuss an oil and gas pipeline route across Afghanistan to the Caspian sea. The Taliban said no deal. For that reason they became enemies of the Bush-Cheney administration.

One thing should be noted about United States involvement in Afghanistan... the poppy crop now flourishes once again, and US soldiers now guard these lucrative opium and heroin producing fields, rather than burning them. You have to ask yourself, why?

Perhaps the answer becomes more apparent when you realize that the "evil Taliban" had eradicated the Afghan supply of opium-poppy production in just one year. This was reported in May of 2001, a full four months before 9/11.

Now, after over a decade of US occupation, the opium and heroin market thrives once again in Afghanistan, supplying three fourths of the world's opium and most of the heroin to Europe.

The only reasonable conclusion that one can draw from this is that some US officials appear to want this crop intact. Just one more reason why the War On Terror is a fraud.

The Coup On FDR That Our Schools Don't Teach
Proof That The Ultra Wealthy Turned Against The US
NewsFocus.org, by Tim Watts - 111112

If you don't know about the 1933 coup by the ultra-wealthy on the United States, let me suggest one reason why. Two enormous historical figures, Napoleon Bonaparte and Sir Winston Churchill, both warned us of one thing that still applies to this day, "The victor always writes the history."

That may seem rather trite to some, but nothing could be more true. When you understand this premise, it's easy to understand how the unscrupulous rich of this country could take over our currency system in 1913, or topple Wall Street in 1929 and start the great depression; because they owned the newspapers, printing presses and the major publishing firms. Do you really think they would detail their crimes for us in their newspapers, books and publications?

As the saying goes, those that don't understand history are doomed to repeat it. So maybe Americans might want to look a little harder at the 2008 Wall Street crash and today's economic collapse. Folks, they are running the exact same scam today that they did in their first attempt to takeover in 1933. The push here is not towards socialism, but a fascist state that favors corporate control and big money. After all, who got bailed out, the bankers and corporations, or US homeowners? The billionaires of this country doubled their income under the Bush-Cheney administration, and now they want even more. Don't believe it? Just look back at history.


Congress Approves 30,000 Spy Drones Over America
Media Fails Us Once Again; US Police State Tightens With 24/7 Surveillance
NewsFocus Op/Ed, by Tim Watts - 020812

Once again, another shocking story that threatens the personal privacy of US citizens has been kept from us by our politicians and the mainstream media. Did you know that a bill, HR 658, the FAA Air Transportation Modernization and Safety Improvement Act, has just passed both the House and the Senate that authorizes the use of 30,000 spy drones over America? Like the anti-Posse Comitatus NDAA legislation that passed in November, this bill was not widely reported by the mainstream media.

Don't feel bad for not knowing about this, because like the anti-Constitutional NDAA legislation, they purposefully tried to hide this from the American public. The corporate controlled mainstream media was once again complicit and was an integral accessory in this crime against "We the People." The corporate mainstream media failed us all miserably.

Think about the enormity of this for a second... 30-THOUSAND drones flying overhead surveilling the US. If you divide that by 50 states, that is 600 drones per state! Most states don't have even have one-third of that in counties, so 600 drones, or more per state is a bit overwhelming. And considering that some states are very small, such as Rhode Island and Connecticut, it won't take that many to spy on those diminutive territories, leaving far more drones to cover the larger states.

This is an outrage, plain and simple. If you're not pissed off about this, you've got shit for brains. There is no good reason why we should have 24/7 surveillance of American citizens. This creates a police state! It is an invasion of our personal privacy.

Of course the advocates for creating this intensified police state will proffer that this is neeed "to fight terrorism," but let's examine that issue for just a moment. ...

Rise of spy planes exposed after FAA is forced to reveal 63 launch sites across US
Unmanned spy planes are already being launched from locations in 20 states and owners include the military and universities
DailyMail.co.uk, by Julian Gavaghan - 042412

There are at least 63 active drone sites around the U.S, federal authorities have been forced to reveal following a landmark Freedom of Information lawsuit.

The unmanned planes some of which may have been designed to kill terror suspects are being launched from locations in 20 states.

Most of the active drones are deployed from military installations, enforcement agencies and border patrol teams, according to the Federal Aviation Authority. ... (Read More)

White House Implements Martial Law Plans
ed Service, Takeover of Personal Property, Natural Resources
NewsFocus, by Tim Watts - 031712

The White House has struck again with another Executive Order to stifle life as we know it in the US. Not surprisingly, the new order was released on Friday, prior to the St. Patrick's Day weekend. Whenever the powers that be want to hide news, they do it on the weekend, when the news cycle is slow due to low viewership.

This weekend they released an announcement of the NDRP, the National Defense Resources Preparedness plan. In this new Executive Order they claim the right to force people into service camps, to take our personal property and all of our natural resources. This is a total overhaul of the US, with a new government structure, without the approval of "we the people."

This is a total takeover of absolutely everything! This new Executive Order redefines and reorganizes the United States government in a most radical fashion, one that could very well be deemed oppressive to its people.

This last Executive order is outrageous in its scope and egregious in the temerity and hubris with which they re-shape our society. The government has given itself the ability to steal our personal property and take our natural resources, as well forcing service without compensation.

As you read along in this Orwellian restructuring of the US, you have to gasp and ask yourself, under what dire conditions do we have to endure for this EO to be enacted... but then you notice the language that says all of these drastic nation restructuring acts are allowed under peacetime as well!

Excuse me, but why the hell do we need to drastically restructure the nation in peacetime? Does this make any sense to you?

Of course they will probably say they will never use such power against we the people, but how do we accept their word for it, in light of all the times we've been lied to by our government?

The new NDRP, just enacted on March 17th, is as deadly as the Patriot Act or the recently passed NDAA. Once again, the mainstream media has let this martial law-style Executive Order slide by, just as it did with NDAA and HR 658.

This new Executive Order needs to be read by every single American!

The fact that a bill of such dire consequence would be released on a Friday prior to a drinking holiday is certainly less than forthcoming on the part of the administration.

Sadly enough, this is exactly what they did when Obama signed the NDAA bill on New Year's eve. That too was a drinking holiday that just happened to fall on a weekend when the news cycle is slow. The perfect time to bury big news.

The corporate mainstream media is a partner in this news sleight of hand. We'll see how they treat this story after the weekend is over. This reporter's guess is that we will instead talk about possible war with Iran or Syria, but no one in the mainstream media will dare talk about this new Executive Order.

Mark my words, the mainstream media will fail us all in their duty to report the real news. They will not report this story.

Since 2011, many acts have taken place to threaten the US Constitution and create a US police state. ...  (Read More)

Bush Administration Planned Seven Wars Right After 9/11

Absolutely criminal. Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Rice should be prosecuted.

There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can't take part; you can't even passively take part, and you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you've got to make it stop. And you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you're free, the machine will be prevented from working at all! -Mario Savio Dec 2, 1964
