With Friends Like Americans - Who Needs Enemies?

Take a look at this vid before you get mad at me:



Folks - at a personal, national, and international level - it is hard for me to understand why in the hell anyone would want an "American" - meaning U.S. Citizen (I am one) as a friend.  After all - we really suck - right?  Actually NO - it seems that way.  Give us a chance to come out of our hypnotic trance.


Oh - regarding hypnotic trance - I don't use that term loosely.  Consider the following audio - listen from beginning to end - then listen again.  Then one more time.

The Egyptian people throw out a guy that had 29 years to be a statesman and make Egypt whatever it is that the Egyptian people want.  What does the American government do?


Joe Biden - US Vice Prez - (this means his job is to STFU until something bad happens - obviously this clown is a bad choice given his history) - Joe Biden says:

" Never shy about sharing his opinion, Vice President Biden had some controversial comments about Egypt’s 30-year ruler Hosni Mubarak.When asked if Mubarak should step down, Biden said “no.”  Instead, Mubarak should be more “responsive to some of the needs of the people out there.”"


So Joe Biden, doesn't think the guy the Egyptians are throwing out had enough time? 


 I don't think "out of touch" is good enough for Joe Biden.  I don't think "obviously pro-dictator" is enough to describe Biden. 


 Perhaps - "one who should be superannuated" is a good description for this remnant from a past time where there was no information available for the public that allowed them to see through the facade presented by the "Masters of the Universe" that control the media and Biden.  


Those "Masters" would be international bankers, corporations, PACS and anyone else with the money to buy United States Senators, Representatives, Presidents, Vice-Presidents, and just about anything else they want.  


Yes - Joe is bought and paid for - and he just put his foot in his mouth - hopefully for-real-this-time - exposing himself for the enemy of liberty he was chosen to be as vice-prez.
Getting back to Americans.  Who am I talking about at a personal level.  I am talking about YOU.  Look in the mirror.  That is YOU.  I make this clear because I know I am dealing with drugged mental patients who are suffering from a mass-hypnosis - the latest stressor starting with the real "shock and awe" of the 911 attacks - the event that placed them into the state of mind necessary when those in charge of the lying corporate fascist media in the United States need to brand their minds with the next orders to follow.  


The next enemy to hate.  The next religion to despise.  The next people to bomb.  The next war for their kid to die in.  The next reason to surrender unsurrenderable rights.  The next reason to pay more taxes and leave their homes while making generous donations to Israel - a country that just got off the hook again after murdering more Americans at sea.  (I don't ever forget the USS Liberty)
Yeah - who needs Americans for friends - fair-weather friends we call them.  There when you don't really need them - but when the storms rise - time to run away and watch you drown.  That's the way it seems - but the wake-up-calls - thanks to those like Barry-O and Biden - are doing their work.  The "sleeping giant" that is America - always awakens.  It just takes a louder alarm clock than most require.
If you took the time to watch the live Al Jazeera feed - probably blocked from the internet where you work - for unexplained reasons - you would see non-American news - and possibly some propaganda.  But you would get another window into the sea of ideas the internet affords us.  As a tax-paying adult - don't you think you should have access to all information - on a system you paid for via taxes that was born of DARPA?  Or do you have a basketball game to watch?
Let me ask anyone - who doesn't believe it - to hang in there and keep the faith.  We Americans are - for the most part - and it may not yet be apparent - the best friends you can ever have.  Presently  - we have been taken over by a cabal of crooks, cheats, thieves, murderers, liars - and propaganda-well-heeled-marketing specialists of an immoral level the world has not had to face for some time.  But once we get some traction - they are toast.  They will be gone - and our welcoming nation - coming out of the hypnotic trance - partially drug-induced, partially scientifically-dictatorship-induced - once we come out of this trance - the rats, who are the first to know the ship is sinking, will not find a safe haven in the ocean of liberty they were the last to realize.  Justice will come - via natural law - one way or the other.
Americans - the vast majority of us - are unrepresented in our war-monger, torturing, wasteful government.  We have all been at work.  Sounds a bit simple-minded - but that explains a lot if you think about it.  The manipulators are showing their true colors - and we will show ours.
Are you with "us" or against us?  
Military and police - think about that question.  Realize that your families are...well...just like me.  Why all the division.  Aren't you supposed to be ....."us?"
Read the Bill of Rights - NOW - if you haven't.
If ignoring those "lines in the sand" becomes the "law of the land" we are in for violent civil unrest.  The military and police will be called upon by the rats to suppress those of us trying to point out that the captain and officers have been poisoned and are out of their minds.
The Bill of Rights serves as a list of "symptoms" allowing anyone - anyone meaning YOU - to determine who the irrational one is.  Who the dictator is.  Who the real Patriot is.
Duty to country, citizenship means not only taking a side - but taking the right side.
Get on the right side of this thing now.
Disobey illegal orders like torture now.

Robbery suspect shot after taking hostage outside Takoma Park bank

""Fortunately the suspect slipped [on ice] and the hostage was able to escape," he said. "... Three of our [Prince George's] officers and three Takoma Park officers opened fire, and the suspect was killed."

Officers took the shots because they believed the hostage's life was endangered, Ellis said.
"He had the gun to her head," he said. "He clearly presented an imminent threat to the hostage, because he could have shot her as she was running away.""

Note:  Biden wants to support the 29-year dictator?  It seems they are having an "election" and he lost.  The guy had 29 years to run the place - look how great of a job he's done!  Biden is insane.

One thing I gather from watching this footage - nobody except the police have guns.  This could be really ugly here in the US where people are armed.

Our leaders have got to get real.  Our media is cooked and not serving peaceful change.  We need things fixed here before this happens here in the 'States.

We Need Peaceful Change - I know...

The torture, wars, and killing are getting to me.

I don't see enough people speaking out.

I really don't want to see harm come to anybody - and sometimes express anger on this blog.

Wishing the devil will harm people is really ugly.

Sorry folks.  I get a little crazy once in a while.

Anyway - please - if you are not involved in stopping the torture, wars, killing, and stripping of our unalienable rights - or are participating in the stripping of our rights - think about what you are doing or not doing and get on the right side of this thing now.

Our Constitution/Bill of Rights are in peril.  What to do?

Anyway - I hope readers will understand my rage once in a while and realize that I know that more harm won't do anybody any good.

It would all be so easy if I didn't love this country so much...

We all have to obey our own laws - that starts with the law of the land and it needs to apply to EVERYBODY.

There is no other flag - other than the Constitution itself to rally around if we are to come together as a nation for now.  I don't know anybody that wants their Constitutional rights taken,

I want the torture, wars and killing to stop.

I just wish it would be sooner rather than later.

UPDATE APRIL 4, 2012:vid below was disabled somehow so I replaced it with the one above


And people wonder why there are questions regarding Obama's home country?

I found the above video after hearing this audio discussion regarding the next-most off-the-table topic since three buildings fell straight down after airplanes hit two of them on 911.

Give this a listen - then ask yourself what in the world is going on - after all - the man claiming he heard there are no birth certificate records retracted what you are about to hear shortly after this audio came out - bear with the Hollywood claptrap at the beginning:



Some study on YouTube leads one into a labyrinth of information, misinformation, and disinformation.  One thing seems clear to me - the "Certification of Live Birth" document on the internet is cause for grave concern.  Start fishing around and take a look at it.  The father's race field says "African."  What the heck does that mean?  African .... what?  Is African a race?  I thought it was a continent.

There are other certifications, and certificates - big difference out there each with a set of questions.

But the problem remains, in the United States, no one is supposed to be above the law.  The law of the land here is supposed to be the expletive sheet of paper Bush and Obama love to ignore.  That is the root of all our problems here in the United States - and why we are so divided.  We are not following the Constitution - period.  And the buck stops right in the White House.

If the president continues his resistance on this issue dividing the nation - the only thing to do is make it a  must to show eligibility to be placed on the ballot.  After all - isn't that what Rahm is entangled in right now up in Illinois?

Do some digging on your own and keep an open mind.  But leadership by example is a great way to set the tone of the nation.  So Obama, Soetoro, or whatever your name is - please do what we all have to do as Americans and GIVE US YOUR PAPERS.  We've all got better things to do - so when people ask their government for something - especially regarding the Constitution - it should be given to them - period.  Even if you are the President.

*pic from Wiki Obama Birth conspiracy theories


Bonus:  Go to this Wikipedia link HERE:

"Sun Yat-sen was born on 12 November 1866 to a Hakka family in the village of Cuiheng, Xiangshan (later Zhongshan) county, Guangzhou prefecture, Guangdongprovince (26 km or 16 miles north of Macau), in the Empire of the Great Qing of China.

As a child, Sun Yat-sen listened to many stories about the Taiping Rebellion from an old Taiping soldier named Lai han-ying (賴漢英). After receiving a few years of local school, at age thirteen, Sun went to live with his elder brother, Sun Mei, in Honolulu. Sun Mei, who was fifteen years Sun Yat-sen's senior, had emigrated to theHawaiian Islands as a laborer and had become a prosperous merchant. Though Sun Mei was not always supportive of Sun's later revolutionary activities, he supported his brother financially, allowing Sun to give up his professional career. Sun Yat-sen studied at the ʻIolani School where he learned English, mathematics and science. Originally unable to speak the English language, Sun Yat-sen picked up the language so quickly that he received a prize for outstanding achievement from King David Kalākaua. While at ʻIolani, he befriended Tong Phong, who later founded the First Chinese-American Bank. After attending Iolani School, from which he graduated in 1882,[9] Sun enrolled in Oahu College (now Punahou School) for further studies for one semester.[10] He was soon sent home to China as his brother was becoming afraid that Sun Yat-sen was about to embrace Christianity, which he did, but he returned to Hawaii at least twice, in 1900 and 1901.[11] In March 1904, he obtained a Certificate of Hawaiian Birth,[12] issued by the Territory of Hawaii, stating he was born on November 24, 1870 in KulaMaui.[13]"




Conspiracy Theory? Authorities Fear Cops Being Targeted After at Least 11 Officers Shot in 24 Hours

I hope this isn't another one of Cass Sunstein's "false conspiracy theories."  But it's the "authorities" with the conspiracy theory this time - so sit up in your seats, perk up your ears, put on your thinking caps and listen as the great ones speak:


"Authorities are worried a recent wave of police officer shootings may not be a coincidence.
In just 24 hours, at least 11 cops were shot around the country.
The most recent incident at a fugitive's house in St. Petersburg, Fla., left two officers dead and a U.S. marshal wounded Monday. Hours earlier, an Oregon officer was critically wounded after being shot multiple times during a traffic stop."  You can read the rest of this conspiracy theory 
here


So it seems a bunch of police shootings occurred and before all the evidence is in - a conspiracy theory develops that somebody sat down in the proverbial "smoke-filled-room" and planned to kill a bunch of cops.  Why would anybody want to do that?  After all - cops are here to "serve and protect."  It is that simple right?


I wonder if the following video has any relevance regarding this matter?



...or maybe this elderly woman "giving blood?"


...or maybe this student?




Here is another recent shooting:
UPDATE APRIL 4, 2012:  INSERTED THIS VIDEO AFTER THE ORIGINAL (BELOW IT) MYSTERIOUSLY STOPPED WORKING

...he wasn't facing the cop?
UPDATE APRIL 4, 2012:  following video added after video below it stopped working



..but the officer feared for his life...  CLICK HERE FOR "ANSWERS"

It goes on and on and on.  Click the "keeping the police honest" and other police links in the archives of this blog to find too many instances of police abusing their out-of-control power here in the land of the sheep...wait...are we seeing signs that the people are not sheep?  Are we seeing signs that somebody is fighting back?  That's what the "authorities" pushing this conspiracy theory tell us.  I agree with them.  I think they are in big trouble.


It is obvious the shootings, Taserings and other brutal instances go on and on and on and there is never ever any justice showing that the officer was at fault.  So now we hear from the "authorities" that they are afraid that the public is taking the law into their own hands since the entire legal system is corrupt from the judges and lawyers to the cops to the robbers.  Why in the world would anybody do that?  Obviously the judges, crooked lawyers, and cops-on-the-take fighting phony wars on "terrorism" (define that I dare you), fighting a "war on drugs" (define that I dare you), etc...  obviously it is all a scam to take your money and your rights away - and as predicted - there are segments of this heavily armed-to-the-teeth population that will "live free or die."


I never wanted things to come to this - that's why I've spent years blogging and trying to inform, criticize, and bring out the problems, that like every situation in a cause-and-effect world have consequences.  Police brutality is meeting the effect it is causing.  That is my unpopular opinion unfit for publication, but I'll stick with it.


One more thing...  our police are the last people you want to call if you have trouble - they may even kill your dog for nothing.  Handle it on your own or you might get somebody killed.  That is a demonstrable fact.
-----Bonus Video----


see here where our "protectors"








Police shoot family dog during 'felony stop'




and here where some whackjob cop pulls a gun on a guy for doing wheelies...


...but...but...they are keeping us "safe" right?  Why in the world do the authorities have this conspiracy theory that any group of sheeple would conspire in a smoke-filled room intent on their harm?  It really boggles the mind.


I think they are in big trouble.  I am against violence - but I'll say it again - since the political process in dysfunctional, the legal system is dysfunctional - the legal system is corrupt, nonsensical and a cash-cow praying upon the masses - that natural law will ensure that justice is served.  Natural law trumps badges, judges, lawyers, bankers and propagandists.  And I really don't care to hear complaints when natural law takes its course.


The police are supposed to set the standard for tolerance and non-violent excellence.  Shooting, tasering and brutalizing a public of impoverished robbed people can only result in a backlash of violence.  Oh - and some "false conspiracy theories" that as Cass Sunstein would characterize them - are false I hope.


Cops - clean up your act and remember that you are PUBLIC SERVANTS - NOT PUBLIC SERPENTS.  You are supposed to be with the public - not acting like an occupying army.


Police yourselves or you will answer to the hands that feed you.  Please police yourselves and listen to reason.

update jan 27 2011  Houston officer accused of handcuffing and raping woman on squad car 







Notre Dame researcher holds out hope for son convicted of espionage

"THE documents that Pollard turned over to Israel were not focussed exclusively on the product of American intelligence -- its analytical reports and estimates. They also revealed how America was able to learn what it did -- a most sensitive area of intelligence defined as "sources and methods." Pollard gave the Israelis vast amounts of data dealing with specific American intelligence systems and how they worked. For example, he betrayed details of an exotic capability that American satellites have of taking off-axis photographs from high in space. While orbiting the earth in one direction, the satellites could photograph areas that were seemingly far out of range. Israeli nuclear-missile sites and the like, which would normally be shielded from American satellites, would thus be left exposed, and could be photographed. "We monitor the Israelis," one intelligence expert told me, "and there's no doubt the Israelis want to prevent us from being able to surveil their country." The data passed along by Pollard included detailed information on the various platforms -- in the air, on land, and at sea -- used by military components of the National Security Agency to intercept Israeli military, commercial, and diplomatic communications. "  (Read more here)


Maybe I'm old fashioned - but I thought passing defense secrets to a foreign country was serious enough to deserve the death penalty.  After all - traitorous spies stab us all in the back since they undermine our national security in ways that no one else can.  


I have good news for spies intent on the betrayal of the United States - our own elected officials may be your best friends if you get caught!  The following snippet is from the article this blog post borrows it's title from: 

"Titled "Why is Jonathan Pollard in Prison?" the letter presents a case for clemency for the 56-year-old junior Pollard, a South Bend native sentenced to life in prison in 1987 for passing defense secrets to Israel as a civilian intelligence analyst for the Navy.


According to the elder Pollard, a cancer researcher and director of the Lobund Laboratory at the University of Notre Dame, Weinberger's sealed testimony regarding the extent to which Jonathan damaged the United States contributed to the harsh sentence Judge Aubrey Robinson Jr. imposed in the case.

Sen. Charles Schumer, a Democrat from New York, later viewed the testimony under the condition he not disclose its contents, the elder Pollard says. He concluded the document contained no evidence to justify Jonathan's life sentence.
"  (Read more here)


Hmmmm....  How unbiased is Senator Chuck "gun-grabber" Shumer when it comes to putting America first when he offers his analysis of a case involving the release of a spy for Israel?  Take a look at the video below and listen for yourself what is important to Chuck Shumer:

"It's one of the most important things I do - to watch - be the guardian of Israel."



I believe Senator Shumer.  


There are others petitioning for the release of Jonathan Pollard:

"On Thursday, Democratic lawmakers, joined by Jewish communal leaders, held a Capitol Hill press conference presenting a letter to President Obama that called for Pollard’s release. The letter, signed by 39 House Democrats, argued that Pollard had received a disproportionate punishment for his actions and that after 25 years in prison, it is time to set him free.


“It is indisputable in our view that the nearly twenty-five years that Mr. Pollard has served stands as a sufficient time from the standpoint of either punishment or deterrence,” the lawmakers stated. The letter stressed, however, that presidential clemency would not be interpreted as clearing Pollard from guilt.
But the letter was signed only by Democrats.
Rep. Barney Frank of Massachusetts, who was among the authors of the letter, said in Thursday’s press conference that he had tried to get Republican members to sign on, but to no avail. According to a JTA report, Jewish officials confirmed that Frank attempted to reach out to Republicans on this issue. Pollard was convicted during the Reagan administration, and since then Israeli leaders have appealed to both Democratic and Republican presidents in requesting his release from prison. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu almost succeeded in convincing President Clinton to pardon Pollard as part of the 1998 Israeli-Palestinian Wye River memorandum. But last minute opposition from then-CIA Director George Tenet derailed the deal."  (Read more here)

The Glock 19: Perfect for the Arizona shooting



""I don't think anyone was surprised it was a Glock 19," says Scott Patrick, owner of Shoot Straight gun shop in Tampa. "That's our most popular gun. We sell about 30 a month.""(Read more here)


Here's another interesting tidbit about this weapon...


"The New York Police Department and Israel's Shabek are two notable forces that use a modified Glock 19 as its standard issue service pistol. The NYPD has 12 point NYD connectors in its pistols; and the Shabek, uses the Glock 19C which features an extended slide stop, meprolight night sights, an extened magazine release and a 3.5 pound trigger." read more here


Despite the howls from the gun-grabbers - it seems that the Glock 19 is a weapon worthy of your tax dollars - that is - when it comes to arming the enablers of tyranny.  If you are an American citizen you'd better get'em while they're hot.  


But what else is "interesting" when it comes to the Arizona shooting?  After all - isn't it something that there is no video of anything?  I mean damn - with all the cell phone video cameras etc... there is a dearth of expected footage.  But - maybe folks in Arizona don't carry video equipment.


When the shooting happened we were told the shot to the Representative's head came from the back then they changed their tune to say that the shot came from the front - or maybe it was the other way round?  Whatever.  We must expect incompetence when it comes to medical care in the United States.  And we should give a little latitude to the docs since the whole situation was a mess and they were probably busting ass trying to save lives.  But for me - I haven't seen any evidence of anything.  Nothing.
It is all hearsay - TV talk - but I haven't seen anything but the usual shills using this event to eliminate the Bill of Rights from Americans.  Pretty sad.  


Wait - that's an interesting thought - what if this shooting was planned?  I'm not saying it was or wasn't - but look who benefits from this tragedy.  Those intent on re-upping the NAZI PATRIOT ACT need an emergency to serve as smokescreen in the media while scaring the soccer moms into sending their kids into yet another war for oil, drugs, or other natural resources:


"Rep. Mike Rogers (R-MI) has introduced a little-noticed bill that intends to once again renew controversial provisions of the Bush administration's USA Patriot Act that are due to expire this year.
When the act was first signed into law, Congress put in some "sunset" provisions to quiet the concerns of civil libertarians, but they were ignored by successive extensions. Unfortunately, those concerns proved to be well founded, and a 2008 Justice Department report confirmed that the FBI regularly abused their ability to obtain personal records of Americans without a warrant."  read more here - (it should be mentioned that Mikey Rogers is a former FBI agent)


   Let's be honest with ourselves - the US public is sick of this police state and they want their "representatives" to stop the madness.  Although the cowardly congress would prefer to ignore the ever-awakening public - they are realizing that they will be unemployed soon if they don't start to do what they were hired to do - represent WE THE PEOPLE.  


But the puppetmasters that bankroll our representatives-in-name-only - know that they must do something to ensure that the representatives remain more scared than the US propagandized-public.   And when it comes to herding the Congress of the United States like the sheep they are- what better to get said sheep to run like "Chicken Little" and pass anything in a paroxysm of fear than for a "lone gunman" to shoot a Congressperson?  Mighty convenient huh?  And what a weapon to do it with - that is - if you had a coupla' shooters there to make sure the body count and intended victims dropped as necessary:

Justin Urquhart Stewart, co-founder of Seven Investment Management, said: "This is going to have some serious repercussions in America, because they do not take kindly to Russia taking serious control in any areas.
"But in terms of BP, it gives them fantastic access to the large oil fields in the Arctic."
