Load Up On Hollow Point Ammo Many Are
Questioning: Why Is The US Government Preparing Deadly Force
Against Its Own Citizens? NewsFocus, by Tim Watts -
At a time when most Americans,
including local police, are finding it impossible to buy ammo,
the US government is continuing to stockpile extra lethal hollow
point ammunition, prohibited for use in warfare by the Geneva
So why is the US government loading
up on extra-lethal ammo that is obviously intended for domestic
The Department of Homeland Security
(DHS) has tried to say the ammo is for target practice and that
they are buying in bulk to save money, but hollow points cost
far more than full metal jackets, and no one uses expensive
hollow points for target practice. So much for that excuse.
Over 2-billion rounds have been
purchased in the last ten months, with 240-thousand rounds
bought just last month. Now, DHS is buying another 360-thousand
rounds. When totaled, this is enough ammo to pump at least seven
rounds into every single man, woman and child in America.
At a time when many are concerned
about an ever growing US police state, some have suggested that
the purchases also serve another function, limiting the amount
of ammo that is available for the American public, at a time
when Congress is trying to implement public gun control.
The addition of HR 658, which authorizes 30,000 drones for US
airspace, has some wondering why the Congress and our government
is turning against the American people. During the Bush-Cheney
era alone, Federal law enforcement agencies grew by nearly
30-percent from 2004 to 2008.
One thing appears certain, DHS and
the US government are preparing for a deadly fight with the
American people, and our elected representatives have done
nothing to stop it.
Why Do They Want To Take
Our Guns Away? What They
Don't Want You To Know--There Is NO Problem With Guns In The
United States! OrionTalkRadio, by Tim
Watts - 032813
Despite the fact that all of the
mass shootings in this country have nefarious origins, beyond
what has been reported in the media, there is no reason
to take our guns away. In Wisconsin, Colorado and Connecticut,
all of the mass shootings were the work of multiple shooters.
That's a fact that the media hasn't told you. (See the video
The FBI says that
murder by gun has gone down for five straight years in a row,
even with the questionable mass shootings included. Now, here
are the real numbers that they do not want you to know. In a
country of 310-million people we had only 8,583 murders by gun.
That comes down to just 0.003% of the
population. Not even 1% !!
That is an infinitesimally diminutive number. It's laughable!
So ask yourself, where is there a
gun problem in the US?
Then ask yourself another question,
why didn't the corporate mainstream media tell you this?
No one has ever talked about
this statistic, until now.
Just remember, you heard it here
Congress To The Same Checks That They Hold Us To If They Can Infringe On Our Rights, For Others'
Crimes, Then They Need To Be Held Accountable For The Crimes of Their Peers As
NewsFocus.org, by Tim Watts - 030113
With the gun debate raging in the US, many Americans have been
outraged by the temerity of Congress in calling for restrictions on our 2nd
amendment Constitutional right. After all, the 2nd amendment specifically says
that this right "shall not be infringed," so why do our elected
representatives think that they are able to go over our heads and ask for
something that the greater majority of We The People did not call for?
The attacks in Aurora, Colorado and Newtown, Connecticut are
alleged to be attacks from lone gunmen, one person that flipped out and
decided to just start shooting innocent people. While that premise is a bit far
fetched, and also considering that there is ample evidence from both shootings
to prove that accomplices were involved, how is it that Congress feels it has
the right to make us pay for someone else's crimes, by restricting our
They did this to us after 9/11, taking away our Constitutional
rights because of someone else's crimes, especially crimes that have
indubitably nefarious government connections. Congress took it upon themselves
to restrict and infringe upon our rights with the Patriot Act, the Military
Commissions Act, and the Homegrown Terrorism Act, to name but just a few.
The Bush-Cheney administration and the US military were clearly
guilty of numerous faux pas on that fateful day, with former officials such
as President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense
Donald Rumsfeld and General Richard Myers, who was acting Chairman of the Joint
Chiefs of Staff, all intimately involved in the circle of failure to defend the
US, yet not one person in our government or military were reprimanded, indicted,
or stripped of rank due to their own personal failures on that fateful day.
No one in the government or the military was made to pay for
their lack of proper action or their failure to fulfill their duties to
We The People on 9/11, yet they made us pay the price by going after our
How the hell is this a proper course of action?
If a criminal robs a grocery store, do you penalize the store
owner by taking away their business license?
If a woman is raped, is she then required to cover up and wear
sack cloth for the rest of her life.
These are of course very simple analogies, but I trust you
understand the premise, you don't penalize the victim for the crime.
So you better ask yourself why it is that Congress once again
seeks to make its constituents pay with the loss of Constitutional rights after
a crime is committed by someone else.
If this is the tactic that they wish to pursue each time there is
a crime committed in this country, then its about time that we did the same to
them. ... [Read more]
Federal Reserve Secrecy Over Bailouts Is
A Violation That Can Legally Revoke Its Charter Despite Rumor, Fed Charter Does Not
Run Out In 2012
by Tim Watts -
One thing that many Americans have come to grips with since
the financial collapse of 2008 is that the Federal Reserve
System is indeed a huge problem in the US, however, many
still have no idea that
the Federal Reserve is not owned by the US government.
It is a private entity controlled by the ultra wealthy, such
as the Rockefellers and Rothschilds, two scourges of
parasite that have afflicted this world for many years.
The Fed was not concocted to
help the US Treasury, but rather to take over the US
government by bankrupting it, something that
actually happened in 1933. Ever since its takeover of
the US currency system in 1913, the Fed has led this nation
into every war we've fought since, and profited its owners
obscenely with illicit gains.
Case in point... the Bush and
Obama administrations both gave lucrative bailouts, to the
tune of around $700-billion and $800-billion, respectively.
That is roughly in the 1.5-trillion dollar mark, but
apparently the Fed went behind our backs and doled out
far more than that.
After much effort from
Congressmen such as Ron Paul (R) and Dennis Kucinich (D), a
partial audit of the Federal Reserve was held for the first
time in 98 years, secured by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
Sanders Report found out was that the Fed secretly and
illegally gave out $16-trillion in zero interest loans to
the largest banks and corporations, for which the Fed says
US taxpayers are now on the hook for.
Many of the banks and
corporations receiving these trillions coincidentally had at
least 18 past and present directors from the Federal Reserve
in their management. Sound like a
of interest to you?
The Fed bankers may have
plundered the nation, but they also set up the potential for
their own demise, because they acted in secret, illegally,
behind the backs of Congress and the American people.
First off, the unfounded
rumor that the Federal Reserve will expire on December 21st of 2012 is
just that, a misinformed fairytale with no basis in fact.
The following will clarify this:
“A Federal reserve bank
shall become a body corporate and as such, and in the name
designated in such organization certificate, shall have
First. To adopt and use a
Second. To have
succession after February 25, 1927, until dissolved by Act of
Congress or untilforfeiture of franchise for
violation of law.”
So you can see, the original
twenty year charter was extended indefinitely. There was no
99 year lease given to the Fed.
To be clear, the Federal Reserve
does not lose its charter on December 21st of 2012, but we
do now have the legal means to end their reign of terror,
because of their blatant violation of their charter. The
opportunity exits to finally kill the Fed.
The point here is that the
Federal Reserve violated the law, committing Federal
felonies by embezzling trillions of dollars without telling
the Congress. This very
clear violation of their charter gives Congress the
legal authority to abolish this aberration from the US
The $16-trillion dollar
question though is, will they?

Why Secession And
Revolution Are Not The Best Ideas For The United States
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
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.
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.
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.
20 Lies Everyone Should Know
Why Are We Still In Afghanistan If Osama
Trade Have Anything To Do With Occupation?
by Tim Watts -
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
reasonable conclusion that one can draw from this is that
some US officials appear to want this crop intact. Just one more

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

White House Implements Martial
Law Plans Conscripted
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
Excuse me, but why the hell do we need to
drastically restructure the nation in peacetime? Does this make any sense to
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.
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

FEMA Doc And NDAA Could Bring
Martial Law Crackdown An Engineered Collapse Of The Economy Would
Trigger A US Police State
NewsFocus Op/Ed, by Tim Watts -
In September I wrote a piece titled The Fascist Takeover of the
United States. It was my assessment that the current economic meltdown
was no accident. It was a devious, meticulously calculated plot to sink
the United States and the world to its knees, to bring about the long planned
new world order dreamt about by the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers. It wasn't
rocket science to figure out. All you had to do was look at the facts of the
crisis and then examine the recourse taken by the Federal Reserve. Our best and
brightest financial minds took a 180 away from the best option to stimulate the
economy, choosing instead to bypass the taxpayer, retail and manufacturing, and
going right to the crooks that created the disaster in the first place. Please
see my article which is linked above for more on this.
That was my first clue that something was awry, that
something was terribly amiss. It is impossible to think that our best and
brightest economic minds somehow missed the impending collapse of 2008. It is
unfathomable to consider that the financial geniuses of this country, people
highly educated with master's degrees in economics and finance, didn't see this
coming, nor understand the proper approach in how to dig ourselves out. The fact
that they took the backasswards approach to the bailouts was a huge tip-off for
this reporter. They chose to compound the problem with hyperinflation and to
reward the crooks that are responsible for the collapse. So that was question
one for me that something was terribly wrong.
The next red flag that stood out was the renewal of the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year
2012 (NDAA). Normally a defense spending bill, but this time it had a new twist
added, the indefinite detention of people "suspected" to be terrorists,
including American citizens. ... (Read

unnecessary: the president already has the power and flexibility
to effectively fight terrorism.
One provision would authorize the military to
indefinitely detain without charge people suspected of
involvement with terrorism, including United States citizens
apprehended on American soil. Due process would be a thing of
the past. Some claim that this provision would merely codify

Forethought And Treason NewsFocus Op/Ed, by Tim Watts - 091411
Let me start this piece out by stating that the current economic
depression that we are currently in was meticulously orchestrated and skillfully
engineered. If you haven't come to this conclusion on your own yet, perhaps you
are not paying close enough attention to the cold hard facts that have come

NewsFocus: This story, though not well
documented, tends to make sense on many levels. With the OWS protests in an
uproar about the Federal Reserve,
and anti-Fed Congressman Ron Paul's presidential run gaining huge grassroots
support, this cabal is not going to go willingly. The first phase of war is to
disrupt an enemy's communication lines, hence impeding gun-toting US citizens
from effectively organizing into militia groups to defend our nation from the
bankster gangsters and their Xe/Blackwater mercenaries. With this said, the
nuclear reactor scare is less probable, if indeed they are on secure
communication lines, as they are supposed to be, although the extent of the
national readiness drill on November 9th is known only by FEMA and DHS. Many
claim a secret war is being waged amongst US intelligence circles, essentially
the white hats versus the black hats (Federal
Reserve cartel). One can surmise that the "change" we were promised may very
well be on its way, whether we like it or not.
An audit of the Federal Reserve has
revealed in the
Sanders Report that the privately owned Federal Reserve secretly and
unlawfully doled out more than $16 trillion in zero interest loans and concealed
electronic funds transfers to some of the largest financial
institutions and corporations in the United States and throughout the world.
The non-partisan, investigative arm of Congress determined that the Federal
Reserve acted illegally. In fact, according to the report, the Federal Reserve
knew their financial transactions were illegal and provided conflict of interest
waivers to its employees and private contractors so they could keep investments
in the same financial institutions and corporations that were given emergency
loans. The report is evidence that reveals major securities fraud in the
embezzlement of $16 trillion by the Federal Reserve. Securities fraud and
embezzlement are both felony criminal offenses. Any criminal offense committed
by the Federal Reserve forfeits the Federal Reserve franchise –
U.S. Code TITLE 12 CHAPTER 3 SUBCHAPTER IX § 341. Second
Embezzlement is the act of dishonestly
appropriating or secreting assets by one or more individuals to whom such assets
have been entrusted. Embezzlement is performed in a manner that is
premeditated, systematic and/or methodical, with the explicit intent to conceal
the activities from other individuals, usually because it is being done without

The Adversary Facing The
Occupy Protests Illegal Police Coordination From The "Federal" Level Serves A Purpose NewsFocus Op/Ed, by Tim Watts - 112811
The occupy protests, like their Arab spring counterparts, are a
revolt by the people against an oppressive system. While the genesis of the
American movement is very much in question, no one doubts the sincerity or the
intentions of the brave citizens who are participating in it, however, some have
questioned the message of the movement.
What does the movement want?
If you can't figure this out by now, then you watch too much TV
news. I mean that, quite literally.
The mainstream corporate media has waged a disinformation campaign
against the protests right from the start, trying to portray the group as thugs,
or just indolent sponges that expect more free handouts from the system. That
characterization is patently disingenuous at best, if not outright character
assassination at the worst.
After two months of peaceful "Occupy"
protests in the US, it would appear that a new coordinated effort has been made
to encourage violence in the movement, however, those advocating and
initiating the violence are not coming from within the movement, but from the
Overaggressive city officials are
mandating arrests and demanding brutal attacks on the demonstrators, even though
those in attendance have done nothing to warrant such hostile behavior from
police officials whose number one task is officially supposed to be "to protect and to serve."
Their duty is not to protect the corporate state, but to protect the well being
of the people. That is job one.
The only thing the Occupy Protest
can be charged with is exercising their
right to assembly. The Constitution
expressly grants "we the people" the legal lawful rightto
peacefully assemble, and to petition our Government of the people, by the
people and for the people for a redress of grievances, as explicitly stated

It's On! "We The
People" Stand Up To The Fed & Wall St. Protests Sweep Federal Reserve Banks And Wall Street
NewsFocus Op-Ed, by Tim Watts - 100611
Make no mistake about it, the ultra-wealthy bankers are the
real evil in this world. The United States has been decimated with ponzi schemes,
derivatives scandals, predatory lending and just about every other white collar
crime imaginable, yet to this day, no one from Wall Street, Goldman Sachs,
or the banking elite has gone to jail for the brutal rape and pillaging of our
Fortunately, the American people have
taken notice and are starting to wake up.
Those who have paid attention and
studied history know full well that the Rothschilds,
Rockefellers, JP Morgan family, Warburgs, and Kuhn-Loeb bankers are the wretched
in-bred psychopaths/sociopaths that have instigated all the suffering of the
last 100 years, and beyond. They do it for money and power. They wrongly believe
they are somehow better than the rest of us, yet by their actions they prove
themselves to be less than human, inferior in moral character, and devoid of
decency and integrity.
There is an old saying that behind
every great fortune stands a great crime. It would be easier to count those who
made their money honestly, versus those who haven't.
The sins of these rich, and many more
like them, have only bought themselves a one-way ticket to hell. These vermin of
humanity are nothing more than parasites, feeding off the backs of mankind.
Their plan has been to
extinguish the greater portion of us, sparing only those needed to serve
them and run their corporate factories. It's time now for "we the people"
to exterminate the real pests that infest our planet. It's time for us to eradicate the pestilence
that has plagued us all for too many years.
We are tired of
their wars. We are tired of their greed. We are tired of the burden
they have placed upon us. We are tired of them.
The Bush tax-cuts saw these
mega-rich double their wealth in
less than six years time. Since the second great depression started in 2008,
they have actually made money, all the while we grow poorer.
The top 500
companies in the U.S. have increased their holdings by 60% during a depression!
That tells you the game is rigged in their favor, and working against the rest
of us. This is the exact same scam they ran on us during the first great depression.
This economic crisis has been
strategically engineered and meticulously orchestrated to destroy the middle class and drive
us into their servitude.
Federal Reserve is NOT federal
folks. It is a private cartel, a cabal of mega-rich bankers who have racketeered
our country and our economy. That is a fact that most of the TV addicted
lemmings in America are clueless to. We need to get educated folks.
It's time to say no to these people and
incarcerate them for their crimes. Our bought and paid for politicians,
including the Bush family and the Clintons, need to be prosecuted for their part
in this overthrow of our republic. Barack Obama must be included for his
complicity in this crime against humanity. He had his chance to prosecute the
obvious crimes of the past two administrations. The only "change" we have is
what little is left in our pockets.
Our blow-combed talking heads of
the media, and their corporate masters,
must also pay for their lies of denial and their silence of the truth, for
they have been accomplices in this
crime against the people.
Throw off your yoke (turn off your
TVs) and stand together now, while we still have the opportunity to do so. The
police state is upon us. If you don't recognize this by now, your ignorance will
become your bondage. Wake up people! Fight for your exodus from the Pharaohs of
the modern world. Let the revolution to free humanity begin!

Trillions to big corporations and financial

The first top-to-bottom audit of the Federal Reserve uncovered
eye-popping new details about how the U.S. provided a whopping
$16 trillion in secret loans to bail out American and foreign
banks and businesses during the worst economic crisis since the
Great Depression. An amendment by Sen. Bernie Sanders to the
Wall Street reform law passed one year ago this week directed
Accountability Office to conduct the study. "As a result
of this audit, we now know that the Federal Reserve provided
more than $16-trillion in total financial assistance to some of

NewsFocus: I suspect that there
is a much larger sum involved here, because these elite
bankers are very adept at controlling their own money game. If
they have allowed $16-trillion to be uncovered, it is a
worthy bet that they are hiding far more than that. Case in
point: The Rothschild family has hidden its immense wealth from
the world for years. They control the fiat money game, so they
know how to hide wealth. Since they also control the Federal
Reserve and the World Bank, it is entirely within their realm to
hide the extent of their latest money bomb on the world. For the
record, this audit says nothing about the Federal Reserve's
money laundering and financial scams that have been perpetrated
since the Fed's inception in 1913. NewsFocus is willing to wager
that the $16-trillion bailout scandal is but just the small tip
of an enormous, still submerged, mammoth monetary iceberg.
Update: Since this story broke,
it is interesting to note the publications that have gone out of
the way to diminish the amount that was truly given out. Some
are trying to say that the Fed has only doled out a mere
$1.6-trillion, but that can't possibly be all of it, if the GAO
audit indeed truly uncovered extra hidden payouts, because we
already knew about that figure from the Bush ($700-billion+) and
the Obama ($800-billion+) bailouts. It looks as if the cover-up
and disinformation campaign is underway. (Bloomberg
A War On Evil? The War On Bad?
A War On Scary Stuff? A Nondescript Vague Enemy
That Promotes The Threat Of Never Ending War
NewsFocus Op/Ed, by Tim Watts -
We all have a pretty
good idea. We know that it's a very bad thing for humanity.
We've been through enough of them in our lifetime to understand
the horror of war, but what actually is the true definition of
the concept, of the word itself?
a (1): a state of

or nations (2): a period
of such armed conflict (3):
state of war
2b: a struggle or
competition between opposing forces or for a particular end
<a class war>
<a war against disease>
this clarification in mind, how do we reconcile the "War
On Terror" by such a simple definition? Never in
the history of warfare have we had such a vague description for
a state of war.
War On Terror is very unique and new to the American
experience. The overall ramifications of this constitutionally
heretical concept are huge. Never before have we encountered
such a personal threat, unless maybe you were a
Japanese-American during World War II.
of this in mind, let's first take a quick historical review of
what is war and our experience with it. Let us first digress
about the state of war and why we fight.
again, to reiterate, we've never had such a vague outline for
war as we have with that of the War On Terror. Our wars
have always been defined. Our enemies have always been
identified, until now. ... (Read

Taking Our Country Back: Regaining Our
Forefather's Republic These Are Important
Steps To Regaining Our Constitutional Rights In The U.S. NewsFocus, by Tim Watts - 081911
Our forefathers are more than likely rolling in
their graves as they watch our government turn into a police
state. A country that they worked hard to perfect, and fought
and died to protect, is no longer the land of the free. Despite
the cries of uneducated pundits, we are not moving to a system
of socialism, we are moving to a strengthening fascist state.
The only socialism threatening our country is the bail-out of
the ultra-wealthy. The only welfare state dragging this country
down is clearly corporate welfare. "We the people" have been
passed over for the privileged few.
If we ever hope to regain what we have lost,
here are five points that we can start with:
1) Take back the media! Under the current
corporate media we
have no watchdog to save us from corrupt politicians, rich
oligarchs and government tyranny. Without this necessary
overseer of democracy we have no accountability for the truth.
2) End the Federal
Reserve System and restore the power to issue money to the
U.S. Treasury Dept. End the illicit bank cartel that has
bankrupted our country.
3) Enact sweeping campaign reform and get the big money out of
politics, particularly corporate money. Politicians are elected
to serve "we the people." not corporations.
4) Kill HAVA! Until it is gone, we have no ballot box
accountability. Electronic voting has been proven to be highly
vulnerable to hacking. Every election cycle since HAVA has had
documented cases of hacking where votes have been stolen, or
added, to influence the outcome of key elections. Give us back
our right to representation through honest, free elections.
5) Get rid of the PATRIOT Act, the Military Commissions Act, and
all other Constitution threatening legislation that have
neutered, if not killed, the dream of our forefathers.
These five points would be
positive steps in restoring the republic of the United States.

driving company stocks way down, then swooping in later to buy
up the fledgling companies for mere pennies on the dollar.

Dylan Ratigan is the only one in the media with the guts and the

Americans earning $1 million or more paid no income taxes.
I've said it before, white collar corruption far eclipses
any lower class fraud of welfare, by literally trillions of
dollars. The August 2008 GAO Report is all you need to read
to understand. Those that claim that welfare fraud and social
programs are the root cause of economic disparity are either
uneducated or horribly misinformed. The number one killer of the economy is
overly excessive military budget. The number two cause for our
dilemma is the rich not paying their way after bilking society
for their enormous wealth. The
wealthy feel they owe nothing for the privilege of exploiting
our system of unchecked capitalism. They reap excessive

It started out by stating that
since 1992, the bottom 90% of Americans have had their
incomes rise by a mere 13%, compared with an outlandish
increase of 399% for the top 400. Damn near a 400% increase for
the richest 400! That is perversely obscene on many levels,

multi-millionaires that profited heavily under Bush-Cheney, it
was the multi-billionaires!

the richest 400 Americans doubled their personal wealth, while
at the same time cutting their tax rate in half. After taxes (if

double. Think about that for a moment. You're a

News of Osama bin Laden Death
Comes Years Too Late The US Government And Corporate Media Try Desperately To
NewsFocus, Op-Ed by Tim Watts - 050211
NewsFocus refuses to give this story the time of
day, other than to say it is absolute pure bullshit.
Osama bin Laden has been dead for many years now, and officials
the world over have known about it and openly remarked about it
publicly. (See the stories below.)
First off, Osama bin Laden was a U.S. CIA
asset, right up to the day of 9/11, when the U.S. government
turned on him and made him their Lee Harvey patsy. Former
FBI translator Sibel Edmonds testified about this, but was
gagged by the Bush-Cheney regime for eight years so that she
could not tell her story. They did not want Americans to know
that bin Laden was an operative working for the U.S., nor did they
want them to know that
the U.S. started the Al Qaeda organization.
Those smart enough to spot the fake immediately
caught the U.S. and CIA lie when the government propped up their
fake bin Laden tape shortly after 9/11, allegedly showing Osama taking
credit for the 9/11 event. In case you missed it, it is now one
of the most hidden videos by YouTube and Google, companies which
are alleged to be
data mining organizations for the CIA. (NewsFocus has a
RealPlayer version of the fake bin Laden video
for your downloading.)
In the video that U.S. officials from the
Bush-Cheney administration said was the real deal, there
were many glaring discrepancies that anyone with half a
brain could easily
spot. Osama eating, drinking and writing with his right hand, when he
is known by the FBI to be left handed. He was also wearing
forbidden gold jewelry, a ring and a watch, etc. (Read
more about the fake Osama video here.)
In fact, those blatantly obvious key points were
so absolutely ridiculous, NewsFocus believes they might very
well be the work
of good intelligence operatives within the U.S. intelligence
community who were trying to tip the world off that a deliberate ruse
was being perpetrated by darker forces within U.S. intel. (Much like they did with the
9/11 NY lottery.)
There is really no other way to explain the absurd numerous
errors that were apparent in that clearly fake Osama
video, unless perhaps those behind that deceptive video were
simply just too
stupid to know any better.
The question is, how did our government
intelligence agencies, and our intrepid (bought and paid for) corporate media,
all miss those glaring errors? The
only answer can be that they were not looking for any errors
because they were too busy falling all over themselves to sell
the American people a blatant lie.
The tape was sanctioned by US intelligence, even though
the figure in the video looked nothing like Osama and was clearly
right-handed. (The FBI says he is left-handed on his
wanted poster. They also do
not implicate him for 9/11.)
Why did US intelligence
claim that it was Osama when it was an obvious phony tape? Again,
because they were too busy selling us a bald-faced lie.
Immediately following the 9/11 attacks, Osama
did not take credit, but vehemently denied any involvement.
was not involved in the September 11 attacks in the United States nor did I
have knowledge of the attacks. There exists a government within a government
within the United States. The United States should try to trace the
perpetrators of these attacks within itself; to the people who want to make
the present century a century of conflict between Islam and Christianity.
That secret government must be asked as to who carried out the attacks. ...
The American system is totally in control of the Jews, whose first priority
is Israel, not the United States. --Osama bin Laden
So why deny, then turn around and admit that he was responsible?
Download the video and you will see for yourself just how
pitiful this attempt at deception truly was.
Lastly... this was supposed to be the most wanted fugitive of
all time, even though the FBI did not want him for 9/11, because
they said they had no proof that he had anything to do with the
attacks. (See the FBI wanted poster at the link above.) So
why, after ten years of supposedly searching for this most
wanted fugitive, would the U.S. immediately dispose of the body at sea
before anyone could officially verify that it truly was Osama bin Laden?
This is the most laughable, pathetic excuse ever conceived, next
to the President Kennedy assassination "magic bullet theory."
Maybe it's also because many people are now looking into
eco-weaponry and the rash of earthquakes that are threatening
the world, as well as the U.S. and the New Madrid fault region.
Maybe it's because those that truly control this world, the
Rothschilds, the Rockefellers and the Morgans, are a little
upset that the sheeple of this world are finally waking up and
catching on to these true "evil-doers" and their crooked
scheming for a new world order that would be run by them. Just
maybe those same wretchedly corrupt, evil, greedy, inhuman
bloodsuckers want you looking at the right hand, so you don't
see the left hook coming that might knock us all out.
This Osama bin Laden story is nothing more than a well placed
distraction, another ruse to fool the few people left that are
willing to buy the lie.
As the Wizard once said, "Pay no attention to that man behind
the curtain. The great and powerful Oz has spoken."
This false tale of Osama bin Laden being killed is pure bullshit
and nothing more than a distraction, but don't take our word for
it. Turn off the corporate TV news machine and start looking
into the truth for yourself.
As the X-Files used to say, "The truth is out there." All
you have to do is look.

His quote is somewhat muddled, but he says, "I don't think he is alive."
While we were not watching, conspiracy theory
has undergone Orwellian redefinition.
A “conspiracy theory” no longer means an
event explained by a conspiracy. Instead, it now means any
explanation, or even a fact, that is out of step with the
government’s explanation and that of its media pimps.
For example, online news broadcasts of RT
have been equated with conspiracy theories by the New York Times
simply because RT reports news and opinions that the New York
Times does not report and the US government does not endorse.
In other words, as truth becomes
uncomfortable for government and its Ministry of Propaganda,
truth is redefined as conspiracy theory, by which is meant an
absurd and laughable explanation that we should ignore.
When piles of carefully researched books, released government
documents, and testimony of eye witnesses made it clear that
Oswald was not President John F. Kennedy’s assassin, the
voluminous research, government documents, and verified
testimony was dismissed as “conspiracy theory.”
In other words, the truth of the event was
unacceptable to the authorities and to the Ministry of
Propaganda that represents the interests of authorities.
The purest example of how Americans are shielded from truth is
the media’s (including many Internet sites’) response to the
large number of professionals who find the official explanation
of September 11, 2001, inconsistent with everything they, as
experts, know about physics, chemistry, structural engineering,
architecture, fires, structural damage, the piloting of
airplanes, the security procedures of the United States, NORAD’s
capabilities, air traffic control, airport security, and other
matters. These experts, numbering in the thousands, have been
shouted down by know-nothings in the media who brand the
experts as “conspiracy theorists.”
This despite the fact that the official
explanation endorsed by the official media is the most
extravagant conspiracy theory in human history.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Federal

The EAS is a national alert and warning system established to enable the

Muslims Are Not
The Issue In This World! An Entire Community of People Ostracized And Lumped Into
One Hate Group
NewsFocus.org, Op-Ed by Tim
Watts - 031611
If there is
one thing that I loathe, it's the hate that came forth from the
evil Bush-Cheney administration regarding Muslims and Hispanics.
Nothing was said about these two groups, until the Bush-Cheney
"fear machine" set upon us all. Goebbels would be so damn
proud, because those two dumb-asses were able to convince the
rest of America that these two groups of people were
"evil-doers." I cannot even say that intellectually
deficient phrase without laughing, but I also cannot get
past the remorse I feel over those who bought that ridiculous,
Is this really the America we
stand for now? We are, have been, and always will be a
"melting pot" in this country. It is one of the single best
things that has made this country great, that we can have
multiple cultures existing peacefully together. It has
undeniably made us a great nation. At least, we were at one
How about a reality check folks.
Unless you're a descendant from the native American Indians,
we are all descended from immigrants. We slaughtered the
real Americans when we stole this land from not only them, but
the Mexicans as well. Learn history.
First and foremost, study the
religion of Islam. Muslims are arguably the most devout God
worshipping people on the face of the earth. Jews may think they
have that market cornered, but they are merely a close second,
for no group as a whole is as religious as Muslims. They are on
their knees praying more times in a day than anyone, all the
while overly pious Americans sit on their fat asses and worship
the almighty tube and the dollar.
What is it folks? Is it because
they call their God Allah, is that what scares you so
much? If that's the case, you must have issues with those that
say Jesus was God, or those that use YHWH, YHVH (Yahweh) or JHVH
(Jehova.) Most of American idiots think His name is "God," and
that shows their true ignorance. God is a "title," period. Argue
all you want, but when you call on "God" you may as well be
praying to Tupperware.
Get your facts straight if you're
going to buy into the hate crimes.
We as a people claim to despise
those that lump entire races together as evil, and yet most of
you have been suckered right into the ruse. Those with all the
money and power in this world are indeed the true evil. They are
responsible for all the wars, and for fomenting division among
nations. They are the ones that need to keep the people in
control through fear. They want you to be scared, because
they need you to be scared. They understand that unless
there is an enemy to be feared, they lose much of their power
and control over you. When you buy into the hate that they
propagate, you buy into their evil plan for control of us all.
And just how religious can you be
when you openly hate someone else, for no reason whatsoever,
other than because some dumb-ass, bought-and-paid for
politician, or TV pundit told you so? How much do you
personally know about Muslims or the religion of Islam? From
the discourse that has arisen in America, apparently nothing!
You are being coerced into hate
crimes, and most people ignorantly go right along and comply
with the lie. We claim it's "anti-Semitic" to bash Jews, yet we
arrogantly think we have the free right to unload our personal
ignorance and hate onto Muslims, all because of their religion.
How patently absurd and morally disgraceful.
You can't be too devout or
religious if you are willing to openly follow the word of man,
versus that of the printed bible, a book that so many claim
to revere and follow. What ever happened to "love one
Whatever name you call your God
by, make no mistake about it, he/she is ashamed of you. Count on
that. However you regard Jesus (Yeshua), he too is no doubt
repulsed by your ignorance and inability to understand what he
tried so hard to teach us all.
If you want to think that Muslims
are bad people, or Hispanics for that matter, then I would offer
that you are the real evil in this world, for you sew a
discourse that is unfounded in fact and rooted in nothing more
than blind ignorance and pure hate.
Wake up America. Pull your
collective heads out of your ass and get your facts straight
when it comes to the real evil in this world, bad people
of any nationality who would discriminate against
And for those that do truly hate
America, maybe for once try to understand their position and
learn about the tyranny that has been imposed upon their
countries and people, all in the name of the almighty dollar and
"American interests." We are arguably the most oppressive empire
the world has ever known. (Thank you CIA.)
Again, learn history and
understand that we are just as much the terrorists as anyone
else in this world. Those who deny this, without first looking
into the facts, are sorely and tragically mistaken.
Muslims did not attack us on
9/11. They did not start the Iraq war for no reason whatsoever,
on a bald-faced lie. They have not persecuted millions around
the world for the sake of capitalism and the almighty dollar.
The real reason that they have
been vilified is because the ultra-wealthy bankers that rule
this world are going after the middle east for their resources.
Muslims are forbidden from charging interest in their banking
practices. (Yes, they do have a heart, unlike the greedy
bastards that have enslaved us all.) THAT is the main reason
they have become scapegoats, because they refuse to play ball
with the international bankers, and that pisses the Rothschilds
off. The IMF wants to control the money supply in the middle
east. It's as simple as that.
Have you ever stopped to notice
that those countries being touted as the "Axis of Evil" are not
part of the international banking cartel and the central banking
If you want to know who kills
elected leaders, has started all of the wars, and who really was
behind 9/11, look to the obscenely wealthy international banking

the military industrial complex. They are the only ones with the
true power to wreak havoc on this earth. The real

The U.S. Army illegally ordered a
team of soldiers specializing in "psychological operations" to
manipulate visiting American senators into providing more troops
and funding for the war, Rolling Stone has learned
– and when an officer tried to stop the operation, he was
railroaded by military investigators.
The orders came from the
command of Lt. Gen. William Caldwell, a three-star general in
charge of training Afghan troops – the linchpin of U.S. strategy
in the war. Over a four-month period last year, a military cell
devoted to what is known as "information operations" at Camp
Eggers in Kabul was repeatedly pressured to target visiting
senators and other VIPs who met with Caldwell.

In a speech at D.C.’s George
Washington University — one full of glowing references to the Egyptian

funding tools that allow online activists, dissidents and ordinary
citizens to circumvent internet censorship in repressive countries. If
that means setting up proxy sites for online dissidents or employing
tools like those of the U.S. military to
get bandwidth into denied areas, Clinton declined to say, arguing
that there’s “no silver bullet” against internet repression.
Since “there’s no app for that,”
Clinton said the U.S. would instead work with technical and policy
experts to develop a “portfolio of technology, tools and training” for
getting around firewalls. As repressive governments adapt their

Pentagon Preparing For US Economic Civil Unrest Military Plans Drawn Up To Thwart Civilian
Uprisings Over Economic Collapse
NewsFocus.org - Op/Ed - 011011
Lest anyone think the government isn't doing
everything they possibly can about the current economic crisis, the US
is currently in the midst of planning and drills for a possible
downturn in the economic crisis. The problem for many is, it's the
Pentagon and the military doing the planning. The US is
currently running military exercises and domestic drills... to battle
upset Americans, in the event the economy should worsen. A
Pentagon plan named "Operation Quest" is currently underway
which deals with using military force to control the population, in the
event of a total economic collapse. The Pentagon is reportedly preparing
for a variety of scenarios, which includes "large scale economic
breakdown," and "domestic order amid civil unrest."
Essentially, preparing for a police state against the people who lost it
Nothing at all about combating the
ultra-wealthy Wall Street fat-cats and bankers, or the preceding piss-poor
government regime that allowed this all to happen in the first place. So
long as the obscenely rich and the corporate elite get to maintain their

in-the-pocket government appears to care about. They will fight to protect
the ultra-wealthy elite, their corporate holdings, Wall Street, the
banks and their sundry financial institutions, but not us. It's us
they're preparing to stand against, not the rich. Our Pentagon is
standing for those who engineered and profited from this economic

Americans may find it in their best interest
to make their own plans, in the event our former government "of the
people" decides to go off on "we the people," right after
they've personally helped bankrupt us and ruin our economy.

and a mugging.

Monitoring America A Washington Post Investigation:
'Top Secret America'
Washington Post, by Dana Priest And William M.
Nine years after the terrorist attacks of 2001, the United States
is assembling a vast domestic intelligence apparatus to collect
information about Americans, using the FBI, local police, state homeland
security offices and military criminal investigators.
The system, by
far the largest and most technologically sophisticated in the nation's
history, collects, stores and analyzes information about thousands of
U.S. citizens and residents, many of whom have not been accused of any
wrongdoing. ... (Read

In George Orwell’s
1984, Britain is depicted as a totalitarian police state that is
ruled by the Party, or Big Brother– an enigmatic, ubiquitous elite that
controls society through heavy surveillance, nationalist propaganda and
historical revisionism. The concept seems like a far-fetched portrayal
of a Democratic nation’s demise into totalitarianism, but in America’s
“post 9/11” climate of fear, the United States government has been
building a comprehensive grid of surveillance and control that bears
frightening similarities to Orwell’s fictional narrative. (Read

It's official: A university study reveals that FOX News dumbs down voters.
The troublesome record of spin by conservative
television station Fox News has long been a cause for concern to many
Americans, who frequently allege that the nation's most viewed "news"
network has the effect of dumbing down voters.
Turns out, they were right.
A University of Maryland study
(PDF) published earlier this month found that people in the survey who
had the most exposure to Fox News were more likely to believe falsehoods
and rumors about national and world affairs when compared to those who
paid attention to other news outlets. ...
services company Halliburton is in negotiations with the Nigerian
government to keep its former CEO, Dick Cheney, out of prison, according
to a news report.
Sources inside Nigeria's Economic and
Financial Crimes Commission
told GlobalPost this week that a settlement keeping the charges
against Cheney out of court could cost as much as $500 million.
filed charges against Cheney this week in an investigation of
alleged bribery estimated at $180 million. Prosecutors named both
Halliburton and KBR in the charges, as well as three European oil and
engineering companies -- Technip SA, EniSpa, and Saipem Construction.
The charges allege that engineering
contractor KBR, until 2007 a subsidiary of Halliburton, was among
companies that paid bribes to secure a $6 billion contract for a natural
gas plant. KBR
guilty to the same bribes in a US court in 2009, and agreed to pay a
$382 million fine. The Nigerian charges appear to stem from the US case
-- though, in that trial, Cheney was never directly charged.
Gee, let's get this straight... Cheney and Halliburton are in trouble
for bribing Nigerian officials in a pipeline deal, however, they are now
negotiating an out of court "settlement" to keep Cheney out of prison.
Excuse me for asking perhaps a stupid question, but isn't that two
payoffs now for Halliburton to Nigeria? What's the difference between
the original bribe and the out of court settlement? <sigh>
The latest one snared Osman Mohamud, a
Somali-American teenager in Portland, Oregon. The Associated Press
report by William Mall and Nedra Pickler (11-27-10) is headlined in
Yahoo News: "Somali-born teen plotted car-bombing in Oregon."
This is a misleading headline as the
report makes it clear that it was a plot orchestrated by federal agents.
Two sentences into the news report we have this: "The bomb was an
elaborate fake supplied by the [FBI] agents and the public was never in
danger, authorities said."
The teenager was supplied with a fake
bomb and a fake detonator.
Three sentences later the reporters
contradict the quoted authorities with a quote from Arthur Balizan,
special agent in charge of the FBI in Oregon: "The threat was very
The reporters then contradict Balizan:
"White House spokesman Nick Shapiro said Saturday that president Barack
Obama was aware of the FBI operation before Friday's arrest. Shapiro
said Obama was assured that the FBI was in full control of the operation
and that the public was not in danger."
Then Shapiro contradicts himself by
declaring: "The events of the past 24 hours underscore the necessity of
remaining vigilant against terrorism here and abroad."
The story arrives at its Kafka
highpoint when President Obama thanks the FBI for its diligence in
saving us from the fake plot the FBI had fabricated.
After vacillating between whether they
are reporting a real plot or a orchestrated one, the reporters finally
come down on the side of orchestration. Documents released by US
Attorney Dwight Holton "show the sting operation began in June."
Obviously, the targeted Portland teenager was not hot to trot. The
FBI had to work on him for six months. The reporters compare "the
Portland sting" to the recent arrest in Virginia of Faroque Ahmed who
was ensnared in a "bombing plot that was a ruse conducted over the past
six months by federal officials."
Think about this. The FBI did a year's
work in order to convince two people to participate in fake plots.
The jury in the Bronx synagogue bomb plot case was told Wednesday that the
informant who provided the four suspects with phony bombs and missiles was paid
$97,000 by the FBI.
The FBI gave Pakistani immigrant Shahed Hussain $44,000 for expenses and
$53,000 for "his services" over a three-year period, agent Robert Fuller said.
Fuller, the first prosecution witness in the trial that started Tuesday,
showed the jury one of the unexploded bombs the would-be terrorists planned to
use to blow up one of two Riverdale synagogues.
Defense lawyers contend that without the informant - who they say entrapped
the suspects - their bumbling clients would never have tried to blow up two
synagogues in Riverdale and shoot down airplanes. ...
NewsFocus:And finally, let's not forget the first World
Trade Center attack, the
1993 bombing by Ramzi Yousef.
Salem was an ex-Egyptian army officer who was an FBI informant.
Salem was to
assist Yousef and others build a bomb, but supply them with fake
explosive powder, per a FBI sting operation. Salem testified that the
FBI knew about the attack beforehand and told him they would prevent it
by substituting the explosives with harmless powder instead, but his
FBI supervisor called off the plan, and the bombing was carried out
for real against the World Trade Center. Salem suspected a
double-deal, once it was clear that the
FBI was providing real
explosives. He began
taping his telephone conversations with FBI agents. Salem testified
about the bomb, saying, "It
was built by supervising supervision from the Bureau (FBI) and the D.A.
and we was all informed about it and we know that the bomb start to be
Those tapes were admitted in the trial
and are now part of the public record. For his role in the plot, Yousef
got life, plus 240 years in prison.
How bad did they want him put away? Interestingly enough, U.S. District Judge Kevin T. Duffy also
recommended that Yousef be kept in constant solitary confinement, limited to
visits with his lawyer.
So, I guess he won't be telling anyone about the FBI cooperation and
planning in that attack.

employed by the FBI are nothing more than entrapment. This is not
skilled intelligence or quality hard nosed police work. It is quite
simply, "terrorist seduction." We entice them and encourage them, when
in reality, if they were left on their own, they would have never had
the physical means to coordinate such crimes.
The brokerage firm that's faced the most scrutiny from regulators
in the past year over the shorting of mortgage related securities seems to have
had good timing when it came to something else: the stock of British oil giant
According to regulatory filings, RawStory.com has found that
sold 4,680,822 shares of BP in the first quarter of 2010. Goldman's sales
were the largest of any firm during that time. Goldman would have pocketed
slightly more than $266 million if their holdings were sold at the average price
of BP's stock during the quarter.
Earlier, when observing the US AG disclosure of a civil and
criminal investigation into BP plc, we noted in passing that BP's former
Sutherland, who left the firm is a Chairman of Goldman Sachs International.
Mr. Sutherland holds some other interesting titles, including a position on the
Trilateral Commission ...
NewsFocus:Since when does an
investment group pull its money from a $5.6-billion 1st quarter profit cow??
How coincidental is it that the head of BP sold off significant shares of his
own stock, just weeks before the disaster? Again, before the massive spill,
British Petroleum was a huge profit leader, making billions of dollars in
just three months time.
Like the 9/11 put options, this story reeks and needs to be investigated, but
this possibly orchestrated diversion keeps the public from looking into more
relevant issues... 1) the finding of military grade cutting charges (thermate)
in four separate World Trade Center dust samples, 2) the anthrax attacks and the
finding that not only were the spores created at Ft. Detrick, but the colleagues
of patsy Bruce Ivins saying it was impossible for him to produce the anthrax, 3)
the call by many within Congress for an audit of the crooked Federal Reserve, 4)
the Bush-Cheney war crimes, 5) the engineering of the global financial collapse,
etc, etc, etc. It's hard to discount coincidence out of hand when man
conveniently profits in excess from it.
This story of the Goldman Sachs BP
(British Petroleum) sell off smells immensely. Add to that the chief operating
officer of the company selling off significant shares of his own stock and you
have huge questions that need to be answered. You don't ignore a story like
this just because you might personally find it hard to believe. You investigate
it to assure that isn't a coincidence. Selling millions of dollars in very lucrative
stock before the disaster and the demise of BP smells worse than the oil tainted
A Russian government report, which
corroborated allegations that Ronald Reagan’s presidential campaign interfered
with President Jimmy Carter’s Iran-hostage negotiations in 1980, was apparently

investigated the charges a dozen years later.
Lee Hamilton, then a congressman from
Indiana in charge of the task force, told me in a recent interview, “I don’t

cooperation in the first place and the extraordinary Russian report was
addressed to him. ... (Read
NewsFocus: This was the
straw that broke the camel's back for me with the highly hypocritical Republican
party. Reagan and Bush were caught red-handed making a deal to keep American
hostages held longer in Iran, just so they could damage Carter's re-election
chances. The Walsh Commission indicted many, only to have all of the guilty pardoned by
Bush. Then Clinton did one of the worst things of his Presidency (aside from
undoing the Glass-Steagal Act), he let Reagan and Bush off the hook for
irrefutable treason against America. And how did Republicans thank him? By going
after Clinton for consensual oral sex with Monica Lewinsky. Clinton was guilty
of lying about a personal affair, while Reagan and Bush were clearly guilty of
treason, an offense punishable by prison or execution. (And don't
call this reporter a Clinton sympathizer. I voted independent that election.)
This was the beginning of the GOP
revolution and the Gingrich "Contract on America." It has been downhill with
Republicans ever since. They fight dirty and have proven time and again that
they will lie about anything to get
elected. Ron Paul is one of the few Republicans who is honest and has a moral
center. Long story short, not only is George HW Bush guilty of war crimes in the
first Iraq war, he is guilty of treason and should be held accountable and
punished with imprisonment or execution for the continued torture of Americans in Iran. And could we
please get off the "St. Reagan" soapbox? He lied about the Iran-Contra deal, only
admitting to it after he and Bush were caught red-handed.
And to be perfectly fair, the Obama
administration must also now be accountable for its myopic continuation of bad
Bush policies that have kept us in this horrible position.

the 16-member panel that Ivins would have had to grow as many as 10 trillion
spores, an astronomical amount that couldn't have gone unnoticed by his
According to FBI calculations, Ivins accomplished
this working after-hours in a special suite for handling lethal agents
designated B3, for Biohazard Level 3. A
bar chart released by the bureau  (PDF)
when it closed its nearly 9-year-old Amerithrax case in February showed that in
August and September 2001, the months immediately before the first anthrax
letters were mailed, Ivins logged 34 more hours in the B3 suite than his
combined total for the previous seven months.
"That's more than 8,000 hours (close to a year)
short of what he would have needed to grow the anthrax," Heine told ProPublica
in an interview after his NAS presentation. ...
Asked by reporters after his testimony whether he
believed that there was any chance that Dr. Ivins, who committed suicide in
2008, had carried out the attacks, the microbiologist, Henry S. Heine, replied,
“Absolutely not.” At the Army’s biodefense laboratory in Maryland, where Dr.
Ivins and Dr. Heine worked, he said, “among the senior scientists, no one
believes it.” ...

Ellsberg in the 70s and again recently with the New York Time's Judith Miller,

They always try to say how horrible it is for a government to endure getting
ratted out. Perhaps a more accurate statement would be, how horrible for a
crooked government. A good government has nothing to hide from the people it
is elected to serve. Truth and virtue have never had to worry about
hiding in the shadows.

BREAK-IN ARE CIA AGENTS
By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor -
Last week’s break-in at Senator Mary
Landrieu’s office in the New Orleans Federal Building was more than it seemed,
much more. All of the 4 arrested had been trained by the CIA and, possibly,
Israel. One arrested, Stan Dai, is listed as an Operations Officer of the
Department of Defense Irregular Warfare Program and a known expert and
lecturer on, not only surveillance but explosives training, assassinations and
“false flag operations.” If you wanted a plane to crash, an enemy to get sick
and die or a building to blow up, Dai would be the man to know how to make it
happen. Problem is, his skills were being used as part of a criminal conspiracy
inside the United States against members of our own government.

If true, what then is saving us from all of that solar

pretty odd indeed.
Ask yourself this... if the government and NASA were truly

we could be using all of that money to enhance and strengthen infrastructure

the belief that the Mayan calendar does not mark the end of all mankind, it
is merely the end of a solar age, merely a measurement of time, a
cycle if you will. Just like finding a calendar with December 31st as
the last day. It doesn't mean that will be the end of time and life as we
know it. It's just the end of that calendar period.
In light of the government's potentially
meaningless expensive wars, coupled with the outrageous expenditures of
bail-out money to the bankers, Wall Street and the numerous corporations,
how seriously worried is our government about 2012?
We can only hope and pray that this is indeed
another false doomsday scare that will once again pass without consequence.
One thing is certain for sure though, many
will exploit this alleged coming event and make tons of money as they once

The very word "secrecy" is repugnant in a free

historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to
secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of
excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far
outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even
today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed
society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today,
there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if
our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave
danger that an announced need for increased security will be
seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very
limits of official censorship and concealment.

intelligence has concluded that the document published recently by the Times of

fabrication, according to a former Central Intelligence Agency official.
Philip Giraldi, who was a CIA counterterrorism official from 1976 to 1992, told
IPS that intelligence
sources say that the United States had nothing to do with forging the document,
and that Israel is the primary suspect. The sources do not rule out a British
role in the fabrication, however.
The Times of London story published
Dec. 14 did not identify the source of the document. But it quoted "an Asian
intelligence source" - a term some news media have used for Israeli intelligence
officials - as confirming that his government believes Iran was working on a
neutron initiator as recently as 2007.

U.S. and European support for tougher sanctions against Iran and reminders of

American creation of the 3rd World War. "We are not attacking our enemy, we are attacking the third world."
Let's face it, Americans, for the
most part the middle and upper classes, enjoy a pretty
comfortable life. We own lots of cool things to make us feel
good about our lives and we have oodles of fancy technology to
provide us with modern conveniences never before ever imagined

point that our only intellectual challenge these days comes from
mindless trivia games that test our knowledge of pop culture.
There once was a time when the education of
science, mathematics and history were the keys to knowledge, real knowledge
that you could grow a society upon. Sadly enough though, that concept has now
given way to what I like to refer to as mental minutia. What was Jimmy

appear to know more about inconsequential bullshit than we do about the inner
workings of our political system, or the convoluted mechanisms that drive our
economy and financial institutions. We have become disinterested in matters of
the real world, accepting instead a narrow view provided by the talking heads of
our overly glorified media. We have become complacent in our intellectual
curiosity. We have become dangerously gullible and overly trusting of our
politicians, but most threatening of all, we trust our media talking heads
implicitly, with little question for the real news that affects us all.

Former Reagan Staffer: Break The CIA In Half
Ray McGovern122209 Editor’s Note: Exactly 46
years ago, President Harry Truman looked back on the still-young CIA, which he
had helped create, and was alarmed at how its original purpose – to provide
unvarnished information to top policymakers – was being perverted by the
agency’s growing role in covert operations.
Nearly a half century since
Truman’s warning, former CIA analyst Ray McGovern marvels at Truman’s prescience
and suggests that the only answer today is to separate out – and protect – the
agency’s core analytical function:
After the CIA-led fiasco at the Bay of Pigs in April 1961,
President John Kennedy was quoted as saying he wanted to “splinter the CIA into
a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds.” I can understand his anger,
but a thousand is probably too many.
Better is a Solomon solution; divide
the CIA in two. That way we can throw out the bath water and keep the baby.
Covert action and analysis do not
belong together in the same agency — never have, never will. That these two very
different tasks were thrown together is an accident of history, one that it is
high time to acknowledge and to fix. ...

their media appearances, as part of a 'psyop' on the American public to sell
the 'post-9/11 world', the 'War on Terror', Guantanamo, torture, and the
continued occupation of Iraq. These 'analysts', many of whom had undisclosed
conflicts of interest such as financial ties to defense contractors,
appeared over 4500 times in the media, as part of this campaign. The media
outlets responsible for participating in the program- which includes the NY
Times- have generally not acknowledged any fault on their own part, and some
commentators attempted to spin the psyop as simply the Pentagon telling
their side of things. A DOD Inspector General investigation found no wrong

bin Laden was a US asset right up to 9/11. This statement alone casts a

translator for the FBI shortly after 9/11. She was hired to listen to
wiretaps in the counter-intel department and to translate those tapes. She
gave her sworn deposition inside the National Whistle-blowers Center in

During her deposition, Edmonds has said that
she also answered questions on Dennis Hastert (R-IL), Dan Burton (R-IN),
Stephen Solarz (D-NY), and Dick Gephardt (D-MO), as well as questions on
other high-ranking officials and lobbyists. She apparently did not have good
things to say about Hastert, now a lobbyist for Turkey. She implicated
Burton in espionage for the Turkish government and also for accepting
bribes. She was not able to talk about the illegal activities that Mr.
Burton committed against U.S. interests.
According to Edmonds' attorney David

come out of this. There are current members of Congress that she has

Congresswoman caught in a 'hooking' exercise. Nefarious figures
placed electronic surveillance bugs in the Congresswoman's apartment and

One year after the
global banking system collapsed the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) 16th
Annual Executive Excess report -- "America's
Bailout Barons" -- shows that the perverse system of executive
compensation which contributed to the
is still thriving for top bailout recipients.
As a result historic inequality in pay is still prevalent
and the neo-Gilded Age tycoons are raking it in. According to the report, a
generation ago top execs rarely earned more than thirty to forty times the
pay of the average American worker. But now top execs make an average of
319 times more than the typical worker. For the top twenty financial
industry execs the divide is even greater -- 436 times more than the
average worker in 2008. In the past three years, the top five execs at
the twenty US financial firms receiving the most Bailout Bucks took home pay
packages worth a staggering $3.2 billion -- an average of $32 million each.
In 2008 those cats averaged nearly $14 million each--even though their
twenty firms laid off more than 160,000 people since January of that year.

Cheney linked to secrecy of CIA
program At the direction of the then-vice
president, Congress was not notified of a highly classified
counter-terrorism program for eight years, sources say.
LA Times, By Greg Miller - July 12, 2009
The CIA kept a highly classified
counter-terrorism program secret from Congress for eight years
at the direction of then-Vice President Dick Cheney, according
to sources familiar with an account that agency Director Leon E.
Panetta provided recently to House and Senate committees. The
sources declined to provide any details on the nature of the
program, but said that the agency had opened an internal inquiry
in recent days into the history of the program and the decisions
made by a series of senior officials to withhold information
about it from Congress. ...
The CIA assassination program that was recently
in the media was actually first partially revealed by the
Washington Post in 2005, when details enabling his originator to
be identified were published. The program made news in the last
few days as CIA Director Leon Panetta admitted that the agency
withheld information about it from Congress, although the CIA
never actually used it to assassinate anybody. Nevertheless, the
program’s “duties” seem to have been taken over by something
journalist Seymour Hersh called an “executive assassination
wing” that was run out of the Office of Vice President Dick
Cheney, and this grouping did go on missions and kill people.

Cheney Is Linked to Concealment of CIA Project New York Times, by Scott Shane
The Central Intelligence Agency withheld information about a
secret counterterrorism program from Congress for eight years on
direct orders from former Vice President Dick Cheney, the
agency's director, Leon E. Panetta, has told the Senate and
House intelligence committees, two people with direct knowledge
of the matter said Saturday. The report that Mr. Cheney was
behind the decision to conceal the still-unidentified program
from Congress deepened the mystery surrounding it, suggesting
that the Bush administration had put a high priority on the
program and its secrecy.

Scientists find active 'super-thermite'
in WTC dust
We Did It, Here's How It Happened Current - Apr 5, 2009
A team of nine scientists have unearthed startling data from
dust gathered in the days and weeks after the World Trade Center towers
collapsed on 9/11.
The Smoking Gun Scientific Report
'We have discovered distinctive red/gray chips in all the samples we have
studied of the dust produced by the destruction of the World Trade Center.
Examination of four of these samples, collected from separate sites, is
reported in this paper. These red/gray chips show marked similarities in all
four samples. One sample was collected by a Manhattan resident about ten
minutes after the collapse of the second WTC Tower, two the next day, and a
fourth about a week later.'

Judiciary Committee in June 2002: “Foremost, we owe it to the

honest. I can only imagine what these crime and terrorism
victims continue to go through. They deserve nothing but the
complete, unfettered truth.”

A 'Fraud' Bigger Than The Madoff Scandal Senior US soldiers investigated over missing Iraq
Independent, UK, By Patrick
Cockburn in Sulaimaniyah, Northern Iraq - Feb
In what could turn out to be the greatest fraud in US history,
American authorities have started to investigate the alleged role of senior
military officers in the misuse of $125bn (£88bn) in a US -directed effort to
reconstruct Iraq after the fall of Saddam Hussein. The exact sum missing may
never be clear, but a report by the US Special Inspector General for Iraq
Reconstruction (SIGIR) suggests it may exceed $50bn, making it an even bigger
theft than Bernard Madoff's notorious Ponzi scheme.

The Difficulty of Being an Informed American
By Paul Craig Roberts January 08, 2009
The American print and TV media has never been very good.
These days it is horrible. If a person intends to be informed, he must turn

available on the Internet, or to alternative newspapers that are springing
up in various cities. A person who sits in front of Murdoch's Fox "News" or
CNN or who reads the New York Times is simply being brainwashed with
Before conservatives nod their heads in agreement, I'm not
referring to "the liberal media." I mean the propaganda that issues from the
US government and the Israel Lobby.
It was neoconservative Bush regime propaganda fed to
America through Judith Miller and the New York Times and through
Murdoch's Fox "News" that convinced Americans that they were in danger from
a small secular Arab country half way around the globe called Iraq. It was
the American media that convinced Americans that getting rid of dangerous
"weapons of mass destruction," weapons that did not exist in Iraq, would be
a cakewalk paid for by Iraqi oil revenues. ... (
