Americans Are Living In 1984 – No Future For People This Gullible

leave a comment »

May 10, 2011: Paul Craig Roberts / Prisonplanet.com – May 10, 2011

We are at a crossroads in this country as to which direction we turn– SJH

The White House’s “death of bin Laden” story has come apart at the seams. Will it make any difference that before 48 hours had passed the story had changed so much that it no longer bore any resemblance to President Obama’s Sunday evening broadcast and has lost all credibility?

So far it has made no difference to the once-fabled news organization, the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), which on March 9, eight days later, is still repeating the propaganda that the SEALs killed bin Laden in his Pakistani compound, where bin Laden lived next door to the Pakistani Military Academy surrounded by the Pakistani army.

Not even the president of Pakistan finds the story plausible. The BBC reports that the president is launching a full-scale investigation of how bin Laden managed to live for years in an army garrison town without being noticed.

For most Americans the story began and ended with four words: “we got bin Laden.” The celebrations, the sweet taste of revenge, of triumph and victory over “the most dangerous man on the planet” are akin to the thrill experienced by sports fans when their football team defeats the unspeakable rival or their baseball team wins the World Series.

No fan wants to hear the next day that it is not so, that it is all a mistake. If these Americans years from now come across a story that the killing of bin Laden was an orchestrated news event to boost other agendas, they will dismiss the report as the ravings of a pinko-liberal-commie.

Everyone knows we killed bin Laden. How could it be otherwise? We – the indispensable people, the virtuous nation, the world’s only superpower, the white hats – were destined to prevail. No other outcome was possible.

No one will notice that those who fabricated the story forgot to show the kidney dialysis machine that, somehow, kept bin Laden alive for a decade. No doctors were on the premises.

No one will remember that Fox News reported in December, 2001, that Osama bin Laden had passed away from his illnesses.
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,41576,00.html

If bin Laden beat all odds and managed to live another decade to await, unarmed and undefended, the arrival of the Navy SEALs last week, how is it possible that the “terror mastermind,” who defeated not merely the CIA and FBI, but all 16 US intelligence agencies along with those of America’s European allies and Israel, the National Security Council, the Pentagon, NORAD, Air Traffic Control, airport security four times on the same morning, etc. etc., never enjoyed another success, not even a little, very minor one? What was the “terror mastermind” doing for a decade after 9/11?

The “death of bin Laden” serves too many agendas that cover the political spectrum for the obvious falsity of the story to be recognized by very many. Patriots are euphoric that America won over bin Laden. Progressives have seized on the story to excoriate the United States for extra-judicial murder that brutalizes us all. Some on the left-wing bought into the 9/11 story because of the emotional satisfaction they received from oppressed Arabs striking back at their imperialist oppressors.

These left-wingers are delighted that it took the incompetent Americans an entire decade to find bin Laden, who was hiding in plain view. The American incompetence in finding bin Laden simply, in their minds, proves the incompetence of the US government, which failed to protect Americans against the 9/11 attack.

Those who ordered, and those who wrote, totally incompetent legal memos that torture was permissible under US and international law, thereby setting up George W. Bush and Dick Cheney for the possibility of prosecution, are riding the euphoria of bin Laden’s death by declaring that it was torture that led the American assassins to bin Laden. All of a sudden, torture, which had fallen back into the disrepute in which it had been for centuries, is again in the clear. Anything that leads to the elimination of bin Laden is a valid instrument.

Those, who want to increase the pressure on Pakistan to shut people up about Americans murdering Pakistani citizens in Pakistan from the air and from troops on the ground, have gained a new club with which to beat the Pakistani government into submission: “you hid bin Laden from us.”

Those who want to continue to fatten the profits of the military/security complex and the powers of Homeland Security, such as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, use bin Laden’s second, or ninth, death as proof that America is being successful in its war on terror and that the war must continue on such a successful path until all enemies are slain.

Most ominous of all was the statement by the CIA director that bin Laden’s death would lead to new attacks on America and new 9/11s from al Qaeda seeking revenge. This warning, issued within a few hours of President Obama’s Sunday evening address, telegraphed the inevitable “al Qaeda” internet posting that America would suffer new 9/11s for killing their leader.

If the Taliban knew in December 2001 that bin Laden was dead, does anyone think that al Qaeda didn’t know it? Indeed, no member of the public has any way of knowing if al Qaeda is anything more than a bogeyman organization created by the CIA which issues “al Qaeda” announcements. The evidence that al Qaeda’s announcements are issued by the CIA is very strong. The various videos of bin Laden for the last nine years have been shown by experts to be fakes.

Why would bin Laden issue a fake video? Why did bin Laden cease issuing videos and only issue audios? A person running a world-wide terrorist organization should be able to produce videos. He would also be surrounded by better protectors than a couple of women. Where was al Qaeda, which according to former Pentagon chief Donald Rumsfeld, consists of “the most dangerous, best-trained, vicious killers on the face of the earth.” Had these most dangerous men alive abandoned their leader?

The CIA director’s warning of future terrorist attacks, followed by a suspect “al Qaeda” threat of the same, suggests that if the American public continues to lose its enthusiasm for the governments open-ended wars, which are conducted at the expense of the US budget deficit, the dollar’s exchange value, inflation, Social Security, Medicare, income support programs, jobs, recovery, and so forth, “al Qaeda” will again outwit all 16 US intelligence agencies, those of our allies, NORAD, airport security, Air Traffic Control, etc. etc., and inflict the world’s only superpower with another humiliating defeat that will invigorate American support for “the war on terror.”

I believe that “al Qaeda” could blow up the White House or Congress or both and that the majority of Americans would fall for the story, just as the Germans, a better educated and more intelligent population, fell for the Reichstag Fire – as did a number of historians.

The reason I say this is that Americans have succumbed to propaganda that has conditioned them to believe that they are under attack by practically omnipotent adversaries. Proof of this is broadcast every day. For example, on March 9, I heard over National Public Radio in Atlanta that Emory University, a private university of some distinction, treated its 3,500 graduating class to a commencement address by Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security.

This is the agency that has goons feeling the genitals of young children and adults and which has announced that it intends to expand this practice from air travelers to shopping malls, bus and train stations. That a serious university invited such a low-lifer, who clearly has no respect for American civil liberty and is devoid of any sort of sense of what is appropriate, to address a graduating class of southern elite is a clear indication that the Ministry of Truth has prevailed. Americans are living in George Orwell’s 1984.

For those who haven’t read Orwell’s classic prediction of our time, Big Brother, the government, could tell the “citizens” any lie and it was accepted unquestioningly. As a perceptive reader pointed out to me, we Americans, with our “free press,” are at this point today: “What is really alarming is the increasingly arrogant sloppiness of these lies, as though the government has become so profoundly confident of its ability to deceive people that they make virtually no effort to even appear credible.”

A people as gullible as Americans have no future.

Al-Qaeda 100% CIA And Pentagon Run: The “War On Terror” Fraud

leave a comment »

March 31, 2011: Alex Jones & Aaron Dykes / Infowars.com – March 31, 2011

This should be required reading and viewing for all Americans– SJH

In a special video address, Alex Jones terms the al Qaeda intelligence operation a ‘Swiss army knife’ for destabilization. Simply put, it is a tool to foment crisis that allows the globalists to offer up a solution in variable contexts.

Today, freelancers in Libya; yesterday, terrorists in the “War on Terror.” Before that, allies against Serbia; in the 80s, Freedom Fighters.

The shadowy enemy supposedly run by Osama bin Laden and top jihadists like Anwar al-Awlaki is really an extension of U.S. foreign policy and the Pentagon.

Al Qaeda shifts across the geopolitical chessboard at the will of its masters in the allied-international intelligence ring. It is perhaps government’s greatest hoax… but the tactic is one of the oldest tricks in the book for any power-seeking State…

Al-Qaeda 100% Pentagon Run

For the average person who has lived through the phony ‘War on Terror’, a post-9/11 age of fear that has swirled around the persona of bin Laden, it may be quite confusing to now read headlines like Libya: the West and al-Qaeda on the same side. Indeed, the rebel forces trying to topple Gaddafi admittedly include more than 1,000 al Qaeda soldiers while enjoying total backing – weapons, planes, funding and forces – from the U.S., Britain, NATO and other allies. The CIA and British SAS forces that are now “officially” entering Libya as ground support were covertly operating at least a month ago.

Alex expanded on his Russia Today rant where he covered this topic…

Alex Jones: Al-Qaeda Created By CIA

However, the Pentagon-run al Qaeda hoax has a deeper history than can be covered in just a few minutes of airtime. As we cover some of the highlights of al Qaeda’s duplicitous history, consider these conflicting statements from two U.S. Presidents about the Taliban / al Qaeda (albeit from different points in time):

“They hate our freedoms — our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other.”
– George W. Bush, Address to a Joint Session of Congress and the American People, September 20, 2001

“These (Taliban) gentlemen are the moral equivalents of America’s Founding Fathers.”
— Ronald Wilson Reagan in 1985 while introducing the Mujahideen leaders to media on the White House lawn

The answer to the contradiction is learning to embrace the deception as truth, whenever the State says to do so, just as Winston Smith finally “learns” in 1984 – when he is compelled to find that 2+2=5. His torturer, O’Brien, tells himYou are a slow learner, Winston.’

‘How can I help it?’ [Winston] blubbered. ‘How can I help seeing what is in front of my eyes? Two and two are four.’

‘Sometimes, Winston. Sometimes they are five. Sometimes they are three. Sometimes they are all of them at once. You must try harder. It is not easy to become sane.’

Karl Rove, a key architect of the Bush Administration, known glowingly as “Bush’s Brain”, chastised reporters in 2002 who tried to appeal to the “reality-based community” in the face of a President who, according to Ron Suskind of the NY Times expressed to high level members of Congress, aides and the like that he didn’t need the facts:

The aide [Rove] said that guys like me were “in what we call the reality-based community,” which he defined as people who “believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.” I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. [Rove] cut me off. “That’s not the way the world really works anymore,” he continued.

“We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality — judiciously, as you will — we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors . . . and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”

Unbeknownst to the media at that time, Rove was operating on behalf of a government that was not only arrogant, but had taken a page directly out of George Orwell’s 1984. America’s enemy Osama bin Laden and his al Qaeda were remarkably like Emmanuel Goldstein, arch-villain of Oceania in 1984.

Goldstein [or bin Laden] was “commander of a vast shadowy army, an underground network of conspirators dedicated to the overthrow of the State.” An enemy that couldn’t be found, killed or slowed from influencing new conspirators at every turn. “Somewhere or other,” Orwell wrote, “he was still alive and hatching his conspiracies.”

“Goldstein was delivering his usual venomous attack upon the doctrines of the Party — an attack so exaggerated and perverse that a child should have been able to see through it, and yet just plausible enough to fill one with an alarmed feeling that other people, less level-headed than oneself, might be taken in by it… Goldstein produced fear and anger automatically. He was an object of hatred more constant than either Eurasia or Eastasia, since when Oceania was at war with one of these Powers it was generally at peace with the other. But what was strange was that although Goldstein was hated and despised by everybody… his influence never seemed to grow less.”

In 1984, it was rumored that Goldstein, whereabouts unknown, might even be taking refuge somewhere within their own superstate itself; consequently, “a day never passed when spies and saboteurs acting under his directions were not unmasked by the Thought Police.”

In contemporary America, the Department of Homeland Security now takes that possibility as its directive, screening and searching ordinary people everywhere in search of shadowy al Qaeda or “homegrown terrorists.” Just as in 1984, children were trained to be spies to rat out suspicious adults.

Behind the hoax contrived to control party members and maintain power, Winston’s torturer and member of the inner-party, O’Brien, confessed that he had personally taken part in writing Goldstein’s outlawed book – a lie to serve the State. It was necessary for the controlling party to create a living myth that portrayed Goldstein as a classic, evasive “external enemy”.

The utility of the external enemy has been noted by many, including the Club of Rome, who wrote in 1991 that “Humans only truly unite when faced with a powerful external enemy…At this time a new enemy must be found, one either real or invented for the purpose.” Henry Kissinger likewise quipped at Bilderberg in 1991 that the United Nations might seize upon an “outside threat from beyond” to unite the peoples of the world.

Thus, the steady diet of propaganda, including the Two Minutes Hate that daily featured new installments of Goldstein’s crimes and heresies. In 1984, Goldstein was:

“…almost on a level with Big Brother himself, and then had engaged in counter-revolutionary activities, had been condemned to death, and had mysteriously escaped and disappeared. The programmes of the Two Minutes Hate varied from day to day, but there was none in which Goldstein was not the principal figure. He was the primal traitor.”

O’Brien proclaimed during Winston’s torturous re-education sessions that: “Goldstein and his heresies will live for ever. Every day, at every moment, they will be defeated, discredited, ridiculed, spat upon and yet they will always survive.” Bin Laden has been patently the same archetypal enemy – despite being wanted dead or alive (Bush, Sept. 18, 2001), armies can’t find him [TIME 2002] after a decade.

Admittedly fake videos with bad look-alikes and audio recordings supposedly sent by bin Laden surfaced routinely just before elections (Tom Ridge later admitted that terror threats were elevated to help Bush’s re-election bid) or when the American people needed a reminder of the threat of terror. Prior to the admissions, analysts correctly suspected that al Qaeda video logos matched the signature of the CIA-linked Intel Center, revealing an unholy connection at the source of the video-taped threats.

Despite the fact that bin Laden had reportedly died and had been in the hospital on kidney dialysis in 2001, Osama bin Laden remained a nearly omnipotent villain in Bush Administration communiques. His survival as the external enemy, like Goldstein, was almost guaranteed because it empowered the State’s official fairytale and enabled action on wide-ranging controversial policies with little scrutiny. Ultimately, in 1984, Goldstein is of no material relevance; his real purpose is to induce submission to the party-led Oligarchical Collectivist State.

Doublethink: Al Qaeda The Ally – Al Qaeda The Enemy

The real Osama bin Laden is a Western-trained CIA asset with the declassified code-name “Tim Osman.” He was chosen to lead the Mujahideen / Taliban in Afghanistan, in part, because his wealthy family has been a long-term business partner to key families in the West, including the Bush family (Carlyle Group). In fact, George H. W. Bush, the father, had been meeting with one of Osama bin Laden’s brothers on the morning of 9/11. The real Mujahideen has been used for a variety of Western-backed political purposes, namely upheaval and regional-destabilization.

Back in 1979, al Qaeda, in the form of the Mujahideen / Taliban, were America’s secret weapon in Operation Cyclone. It was geopolitical strategist Zbigniew Brzezinski, then National Security Advisor under Carter, who schemed to draw the Soviet Union into a trap that might bleed them dry. [Declassified documents authorizing action A / B]

Brzezinski gave an interview to France’s Le Nouvel Observateur in 1998, unapologetic about their covert aid to the Mujahadeen six months before the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan. Here is a segment of that interview:

Q: You don’t regret anything today?

Brzezinski: Regret what? That secret operation was an excellent idea. It had the effect of drawing the Russians into the Afghan trap and you want me to regret it? The day that the Soviets officially crossed the border, I wrote to President Carter: We now have the opportunity of giving to the USSR its Vietnam war. Indeed, for almost 10 years, Moscow had to carry on a war unsupportable by the government, a conflict that brought about the demoralization and finally the breakup of the Soviet empire.

Q: And neither do you regret having supported the Islamic [integrisme], having given arms and advice to future terrorists

Brzezinski: What is most important to the history of the world? The Taliban or the collapse of the Soviet empire? Some stirred-up Moslems or the liberation of Central Europe and the end of the cold war?

Q: Some stirred-up Moslems? But it has been said and repeated: Islamic fundamentalism represents a world menace today.

Brzezinski: Nonsense!

Zbigniew Brzezinski (1979)

During the Reagan years, they were Freedom Fighters, public heroes heralding the possibility for democracy to spread overseas in resistance to Communism. Reagan even dedicated the launch of the space shuttle Columbia to the Afghans, in the name of the ‘highest aspirations of freedom.’ In 1985, Ronald Reagan said the men in the Taliban’s ranks were “the moral equivalents of America’s Founding Fathers.” These men were supported openly for a decade as the Soviets met ‘their Vietnam’ in Afghanistan…

Freedom Fighters In Afghanistan

As Kurt Nimmo writes: “Osama bin Laden ran MAK (Maktab al-Khidamat), an organization created by Pakistan’s ISI at the behest of the CIA. It funneled money, weapons, and internationally recruited fighters into the war created in part by Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski. Osama was closely tied to the Afghan warlord and ISI stooge Gulbuddin Hekmatyar who ran drugs for the CIA. In the 1980s, emissaries from the United States met with Osama. The CIA paid Osama to train the militant group Abu Sayyaf and others at his CIA-built camps in Afghanistan. In New York, Osama’s MAK operated the CIA-connected al-Kifah Refugee Center that was involved in the 1993 WTC bombing. The U.S. government would later call the al-Kifah charity the “precursor organization to al-Qaeda.””

The 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center was exposed as another cruel hoax. In 1993, the FBI became, at best, dangerous enablers as they undertook a “sting” operation to allegedly prove the culpability of the suspects. Even Wikipedia admits that harmless powder was swapped with real bomb material. FBI informant Emad Salem became alarmed at the introduction of real explosives and recorded his conversations with the F.B.I. proving they enabled and allowed the bombing to go forward that killed 4 people.

Simultaneously, by the late 80s and early 90s, al-Qaeda, under U.S. orders, “migrated to Bosnia, hoping to assist their Islamic brethren in a struggle against Serbian [and for a time] Croatian forces.” Al Qaeda was still a U.S. and Saudi-backed ally circa 1999 that backed the Albanian KLA in terrorist acts in the war-torn Yugoslavian region, even up to the time of NATO’s bombings, despite growing concerns about terrorism, including the impact of the 1993 WTC bombing. See also: Mega Oil and Mujahidin from the Balkans to the Caucasus

With Serbia – former Yugoslavia still fresh in the public mind but the Pentagon-al Qaeda connection largely in the shadows – the USS Cole was bombed in October 2000 in a Yemeni port. The act of terror against the United States would be blamed on Osama bin Laden, rogue heir to the wealthy family known for their business with big Western players (like the Carlyle Group, etc.).

The 9/11 attacks hit. It was instantly blamed on Osama bin Laden. Endless contradictions to the official government account emerged over the coming hours, days, weeks and years for now almost a decade, without any sign of accountability or truth in the officialdom anywhere in sight. In addition to gross contradictions to the laws of physics in the collapses of WTC towers 1, 2 and 7, details came forward about how the accused hijackers were trained at U.S. bases, lived with FBI informants, were given VISAS and let past borders despite being on the watchlists; the hijackers were identified by U.S. intelligence agencies [Able Danger, et. al.], but their warnings were ignored (and much, much more: prior knowledge, warnings, drills, etc., etc., etc.).

While rallying the public behind a war in Afghanistan, and soon in Iraq as well, the Bush Administration clandestinely let members of the bin Laden family quietly fly out of the United States, even while all other flights were grounded. It would be revealed in articles about the “Airlift of Evil,” that U.S. forces also covertly exported Taliban forces from Afghanistan to Pakistan; meanwhile, U.S. soldiers where geared up to search in caves and rugged terrain for a shadowy enemy in the “graveyard of empires“; as of 2011, the deadline for leaving Afghanistan continues to roll back.

As noted earlier, embarrassing leaks emerged casting doubt on the validity of al Qaeda’s jihad against America, as the Bush Administration continued to hype the threat of terror without pause. Controversial measures, including the Constitution-shredding Patriot Act, warrantless-wiretaps of U.S. citizens, torture (Obama refused to investigate the crimes of the Bush Admin.) and indefinite detention and other devastating attacks on the “hated freedoms” of Americans continued seamlessly under Barack Obama.

Nearly every major terror plot uncovered domestically has, in fact, turned out to be a contrivance by the FBI where it sets-up a sting and encourages its patsies to carry out an attack. The “close calls” on American soil since 9/11 have largely been connected to Anwar al-Awlaki, who it was revealed, dined with Pentagon brass in the months after 9/11.

The Underwear Bomber who tried to blow-up a Detroit-bound plane was given VISA clearance by the State Dept. despite being on the watchlist; witnesses Kurt & Lori Haskell watched Abdulmutallab being helped on the plane by a “sharp-dressed man” who was most likely an intelligence agent. They also witnessed other suspects/patsies who were never mentioned in the mainstream media.

The key questions their verified account raises may never be addressed, as the accused Abdulmutallab is attempting to represent himself in court. Hoaxes and inconsistencies have been raised around the cases of the Fort Hood shooter, the Times Square bomber and many, many others. Even Geraldo Rivera of Fox News has noted that the FBI’s pattern of sting operations are ‘bogus’.

Homeland Security took on a greater role, imposing absurd and unpopular TSA body scanners and groping pat-downs on travelers. DHS has furthered rolled out checkpoints, mobile x-ray vans on public streets and highways (including pedestrians), on trains, buses and boats, as well as at sport stadiums, hotels and shopping malls and beyond.

In 2011, George Orwell’s “War is Peace” mantra is upgraded once again, as the Nobel Peace Prize winner President Obama expands war into Libya under the Orwellian-guise of a “humanitarian crisis,” imposing a no-fly zone (which immediately gave way to full scale bombings and then ground forces).

Americans, Westerners and the world at-large must scratch their heads once again as wars in Iraq and Afghanistan not only continue, but the West finds an unlikely ally against Col. Gaddafi in rebels made up of al Qaeda forces. The Lie has not stopped, as Western intelligence continues to wield one of its most powerful client-weapons– the al Qaeda hoax, invariably friend or foe, as the situation demands.

In classic doublethink, the same week the public learns its anti-Gaddafi allies include al Qaeda, over-the-top, grandiose threats are made by mail claiming that al Qaeda has some 160 nuclear bombs buried at strategic locations across the United States; if there’s any truth at all to the claim, you can be certain the nuclear material was delivered via Western intelligence.

Napolitano Says Terror Threat In US “Most Heightened” Since 9/11

leave a comment »

February 9, 2011: Jason Ryan and Devin Dwyer / ABC News – February 9, 2011

The threat of terrorism is at “its most heightened state” since the 9/11 attacks nearly a decade ago, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said today.

“The terrorist threat facing our country has evolved significantly in the last ten years — and continues to evolve — so that, in some ways, the threat facing us is at its most heightened state since those attacks,” she said before the House Homeland Security Committee.

Her comments were a sobering reminder that the potential of another attack is real and growing, most notably from individuals radicalized inside the United States, despite elaborate security measures implemented by the government since 2001.

“One of the most striking elements of today’s threat picture is that plots to attack America increasingly involve American residents and citizens,” Napolitano said, referring to so-called homegrown terrorists fueled by the Internet and connections with operatives overseas.

More than two dozen Americans have been arrested on terrorism charges in the past two years, according to government statistics.

Fifty individuals involved in 32 high-profile terrorism plots involving al Qaeda-like ideology in the past decade were U.S. citizens at the time of their arrests, according to a study by the New York State Intelligence Center. Most were natural-born.

“[We] are now operating under the assumption, based on the latest intelligence and recent arrests, that individuals prepared to carry out terrorist attacks and acts of violence might be in the United States, and they could carry out acts of violence with little or no warning,” Napolitano said.

Napolitano made the remarks before the House Homeland Security Committee, where she testified with National Counterterrorism Center Director Michael Leiter.

“This shift is a game changer,” Republican committee chairman Rep. Peter King of New York said. “We must confront this threat.”

FBI and Justice Department officials have reported a spike in the number of terrorism-related investigations and prosecutions involving U.S. residents since 2009.

Many of the suspects — including Najibullah Zazi, who plotted New York City subway bombings in September 2009, and Faisal Shahzad, the convicted would-be Time Square bomber — lived and worked for years inside the United States before preparing their attacks.

David Headley of Chicago was convicted of a role in the November 2008 Mumbai attacks that killed more than 170 people, and Colleen LaRose, more commonly known as “Jihad Jane,” was implicated in a plot to kill a Swedish cartoonist for drawing the head of the Prophet Muhammad on the body of a dog in 2007.

Leiter said the evolution of domestic radicalism has been aided by propaganda developed by extremists and pushed on the Internet.

“This narrative — a blend of al Qaeda inspiration, perceived victimization and glorification of past homegrown plotting — addresses the unique concerns of like-minded, U.S.-based individuals,” he said.

Yemen Focus of Counterterror Effort

Homeland security officials said Yemen remains the “battleground” from which al Qaeda operatives are actively planning attacks against the United States, training recruits and coordinating plots.

The country is also home to radical Islamic cleric Anwar al Awlaki, a Yemeni-American who has used the Internet to encourage attacks from abroad.

Asked by chairman King to compare Osama bin Laden and Awlaki, Leiter said he considers Awlaki and the group al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, which he leads, “probably the most significant risk to the U.S. homeland.”

Awlaki had ties to the attempted 2009 Christmas day bombing of Northwest flight 253 and last fall’s cargo bomb plot, Adam Gadahn, a top propaganda master for al Qaeda, and Omar Hammami, a U.S. citizen from Alabama turned top recruiter and lieutenant in the al Qaeda-linked Al Shabaab terrorist network in Somalia.

“He’s an extremely dangerous man. He has shown a desire to harm the United States, a desire to strike the homeland of the United States,” U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said in December. “He is a person who — as an American citizen — is familiar with this country and he brings a dimension, because of that American familiarity, that others do not.”

Holder said that as a threat to the United States, Awlaki ranks alongside bin Laden. “He would be on the same list with bin Laden,” the attorney general said. “He’s up there. I don’t know whether he’s one, two, three, four — I don’t know. But he’s certainly on the list of the people who worry me the most.”

Napolitano and Leiter sought to reassure members of Congress and the public today that the agencies were actively working to counter the evolving dangers, including Awlaki.

Leiter said the agency’s new “pursuit groups,” created after intelligence officials failed to connect the dots and detect the 2009 Christmas Day bomb plot, have “repeatedly identified key leads that would have otherwise been missed amidst a sea of uncorrelated data.”

He also said the government has bolstered its terrorist watch lists and enhanced its search capability with a “Google-like” function. Previously, the databases could not be quickly searched or cross-referenced.

Authorities said that while the threat of homegrown terrorism remains acute, the capabilities of al Qaeda have been successfully degraded to “one of its weakest points in the past decade.”

“During the past two years, al Qaeda’s base of operations in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas [of Pakistan] has been restricted considerably, limiting its freedom of movement and ability to operate,” Leiter said. “The group has been forced to react continuously to personnel losses that are affecting the group’s morale, command and control, and continuity of operations.”

Ventura May Stop TSA Violations With His 4th Amendment Lawsuit

leave a comment »

February 9, 2011: Jennifer Abel / Guardian – February 1, 2011

Things have come to a pretty pass if our best hope is a former pro wrestler’s lawsuit against the TSA’s violations of privacy…

Desperation is when once-proud and free Americans like me are reduced to pleading, “Save us, Jesse Ventura, you’re our only hope.”

It’s over three months now since the unelected political appointees heading the TSA made their sexually abusive Hobson’s choice mandatory for American airline customers: either step through a scanner whose potentially cancerous radiation lets TSA agents view your nude body, or adopt guilty-criminal, hands-in-the-air poses, while agents grope you head to toe, genitalia included.

Two months since Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano suggested expanding this to all forms of mass transit. Eight weeks since the House of Representatives voted 417 to 3 in favour of House Resolution 28, supporting exactly that TSA expansion. And mere days since Barack Obama joked about the patdowns in his state of the union address. (Easy for him to laugh, as one of the privileged few exempt from the humiliations TSA imposes on his countrymen.)

What about the rest of us Americans? I’m one who insists, along with others, “We won’t fly”, so long as TSA abuse remains part of the experience. Yet much of the media insists that makes us stubbornly selfish at best, prudishly insane at worst.

Then, there’s Jesse Ventura, the former pro wrestler and Reform party governor of Minnesota. He doesn’t belong to the “boycott flying” contingent; indeed, he flies several times each week in order to host his TV show, Conspiracy Theory. But Ventura, like millions of Americans, has health problems that force him to rely on medical implants or prosthetics – in his case, a titanium hip replacement that’s set off metal detectors ever since he got it in 2008.

Ventura had no objections when the TSA used a handheld wand to clear him through security, but that changed with the “nude-scan or grope-down” policy last autumn. So, on 25 January 2011, he filed a lawsuit against Homeland Security and TSA for violating his fourth amendment rights against unreasonable search and seizure, claiming the patdowns “exposed him to humiliation and degradation through unwanted touching, gripping and rubbing of the intimate areas of his body.”

No comment from the TSA, though, a few days later, Administrator John Pistole made the unrelated announcement he won’t allow any more airports to opt out of TSA staffing.

Though they did blink last Thanksgiving eve, when the National Opt-Out Day protest was scheduled; the plan called for fliers to refuse the scanners en masse, so the TSA turned them off at major airports. Then, spokeswoman Ann Davis gloated over her “overall sense that passengers seem to be opting out of Opt Out.” The agency has since refused all freedom of information requests demanding to know why those allegedly essential security procedures were ignored on Opt-Out Day.

Meanwhile, we learned that the scanners can’t discern between “plastic explosives” and “human flesh”. The TSA has yet to find a single terrorist, though they have no difficulty detecting menstruating women, or cancer patients with colostomy bags, or prosthetic breasts.

When gropings make small children scream in terror, TSA director James Marchand advised agents, “If you can come up with some kind of a game to play with a child, it makes it a lot easier” – advice, akin to paedophile “grooming”, which has caused alarm among sex abuse experts.

The lawsuits keep coming; the TSA keeps losing, yet the agency presses ever forward rather than backing down. It’s too early to predict how Ventura’s lawsuit will be decided, although the TSA hasn’t been faring well in court lately: last week, Phil Mocek was acquitted of the four charges the TSA brought against him after he (legally) videotaped agents at work and refused to show his ID. TSA’s case was so weak, Mocek’s defence didn’t even need to call witnesses. Two weeks before that, the TSA settled another lawsuit brought by Lynsie Murley, after agents in Texas allegedly pulled down her blouse, exposing her breasts to all, then teased her about it.

American taxpayers – who actually paid for that settlement – weren’t told how much it was for. TSA spokesman Luis Casanova also refused to name the agents responsible, but did say they hadn’t been fired or disciplined. “When a settlement is reached, there is no disciplinary action,” Casanova said. “It’s a no-fault kind of settlement.”

It always is where the TSA’s concerned.

America Through The Looking Glass: Journey On A Greyhound Bus

with 5 comments

January 8, 2011: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – January 8, 2011

Rather than get porno scanned or sexually molested by the TSA, I decided to take a Greyhound bus cross-country. This was the first leg of my four part 5000 mile journey… I was shocked at how many people were traveling by bus nearly a week after the New Year. The stations were packed, there were numerous delays, buses were sold out, and extra buses and drivers had to be called in at nearly every stop in order to accommodate the overload in what Greyhound continually apologized for by saying it was due to the end of the holiday travel season.

However, with the exception of a group of soldiers whom I’ll mention later, not one person ever mentioned to me, nor did I overhear anyone say, that they were returning home from the holidays. They were all going somewhere. Did they opt to ride instead of fly due to the TSAs unconstitutional police state tactics? Because the savings to take Greyhound were insignificant compared to flying at the time.

Anyway, having crisscrossed America countless times, I couldn’t help but notice on this trip just how rundown and seemingly desolate so many of the cities and towns appeared to be that we had either passed by while on the highway or when we actually stopped in a town that was a scheduled stop. It eerily reminded me of Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand… “Who is John Galt?”

Maybe part of it was that I was not flying at 30,000 feet or preoccupied with actually driving myself, and maybe it was also due to the fact that there was no snow anywhere and thus everything and everywhere was a dreary and brown painting of bare desolation.

If my recollection serves me correctly, this may have been the only time I had ever traveled between the upper Midwest and the far Southeast in January and saw no snow along the entire trip, even though it was unseasonably cold all the way down to Florida. But there was more to it than that.

The highways were typically strewn with litter, mostly old food packages, tossed out coffee and soda cups, plastic bags, beer cans and broken bottles which all stood out on the barren landscape like beacons of poverty atop the lifeless terrain. And every so often a handmade cross with a name written on it had been erected marking the death of yet another unfortunate motorist along the roadside.

Dilapidated billboards advertising their outdated products or services from days long past left a lasting image of a once thriving country now succumbing to decay, as did the countless empty shops and store fronts in the strip malls along the way.

On occasion there was a glimmer of hope with fleeting signs of some semblance of a bygone American quality of life as I noticed a spattering of golfers hitting the links, which more resembled poorly designed martian landscapes in a low-budget sci-fi movie in the January emptiness of vacant dormancy.

Heading up into the carved out mountains of Tennessee showed evidence of once great engineering feats from decades ago. A time when America still actually created and built things. Today this country only builds insurmountable debt and poverty while creating nothing but unending wars and destruction.

The mountains were also surprisingly absent of any snow, even as giant icicles dangled from the cliff sides as we passed through the man-made canyons as potholes continually rocked the bus with bone jarring jolts. Another sign of perpetual decay in an America that once stood as a pillar of progress and ingenuity. A country the world round that others once strived to emulate, is now a skeleton of greed.

The sky is no longer the deep dark blue of my youth, but rather the all too typical milky white haziness we have all become so accustomed to as chemtrails slashed the sky with their poison that were clearly visible literally every mile along the way until the leaking horizon kissed the ocher earth.

The stars overhead in Georgia however were unusually bright, until you looked down to 45 degrees from the horizon where they disappeared behind the manufactured wax paper that now shrouds the atmosphere in a ghostly white. The bus rolled on… “I said be careful his bowtie is really a camera.”

On one of the buses there was a group of Army recruits returning from the holidays to Ft. Benning outside of Atlanta to complete their basic training. While having a smoke at one of the stops somewhere in Tennessee, or maybe it was Kentucky, I told them about the notorious School of Assassins (School of America’s) at Ft. Benning.

The young men, most just boys really, looked at me sheepishly and repeated a phrase that all of us who have served in the military have heard before… “We don’t know anything. We’re on a need to know basis.” I laughed, told them I was a former Marine and that I understood completely.

I then went on to say that I wanted them all to remember one thing during their tour of duty, “Remember the oath you all took… to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against both foreign and domestic enemies.”

I then said, “There’s a lot of bad guys running this country.” Most were silent, but a few chimed in in unison and said, “We know.”

They were all seemingly good kids, much like I was at that age when I joined, but if deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan, they will invariably return vastly different, if at all, than the innocence I encountered during our journey that day.

While traveling through Florida I engaged in a fascinating conversation with a gentleman who admitted to being a Master Mason after I brought up Freemasonry and the Illuminati while in another conversation about the Bible with someone else. I was pleasantly surprised with his knowledge concerning the Masonic and Illuminati symbology on the back of the dollar bill, as well as many other aspects of secret societies and the New World Order.

We talked for hours while several others listened intently as we discussed everything from Project Blue Beam to the Bible to the Federal Reserve to the slaughter of Palestinians by Israel and a number of other related topics as the bus rolled on from Ocala to Orlando at three something in the morning. I hope a seed was planted amongst them who were listening. That is how liberty grows.

Finally, in Orlando, America reared its ugly police state fascism during a four hour layover before heading to Melbourne. I had just traveled via Greyhound through six states, totaling 31 hours at that point with no searches or violations of my Fourth Amendment.

I walked in the station from the bus platform, put the bulk of my luggage at my next departing gate, then walked past two gun toting rent-a-cops searching incoming passengers from the front entrance and walked out to the smoking area with my laptop and another small back pack.

I had a smoke and walked past the people in line being searched, since I had obviously already been in the “secure” zone, when the shortest of the two rent-a-cops told me to stop and go to the end of the line to be searched.

I said that I had just walked out to have a smoke, when he repeated in a contemptuous tone to get back to the end of the line. Needless to say, after 31 hours of riding buses, I was incensed at this point. I waited nearly 20 minutes before it was my turn to empty my pockets into a tray, place my laptop and bag on a table, then stand spread eagle as I was wanded both front and back, then asked to remove my hat.

The shorter of the two rent-a-cops, who was the officer in charge of this Stasi checkpoint, had that typical psychopathic attitude of superiority burning in his napoleanic eyes. He rifled through my personal belongings in both bags, then checked the contents of the tray, including looking inside my cigarette pack.

Afterward, when nothing of interest was found and my bags and the tray were handed back to me, I asked this little prick, “So, are you going to do this every time I go out to have a smoke during the next four hours?” He responded flatly, “Yes.”

I then said in a rather authoritative tone, “So what you’re telling me is that I can’t smoke while I wait here for the next four hours until my bus arrives without getting searched every time I come in… Correct?”

“No, go ahead and smoke. We’ll just leave you out there until the end when we’re done searching everyone else…Do you have any knives?” “Nope.” I answered just as flatly as he had earlier. “Do you have any drugs?” “Nope.” I took my belongings and walked away letting him clearly know by my glare of contempt and disgust that I was not at all pleased with this unconstitutional treatment.

This blatant violation of my Fourth Amendment happened two more times during the course of four hours with this little jackboot Nazi piece of shit searching me again and again each time I came back in from having a smoke.

The last time I was out smoking, I had just returned from getting a cup of coffee across the street, when this simpleton with a badge and a gun came up behind me outside and said, “I don’t believe I checked your ticket.” I said, “What? You saw it twice when I put it in the tray.”

He said, “I just did a ticket check of all the passengers inside and I did not check yours.” At this point I just pulled out my ticket and handed it to him. He inspected it, handed it back and turned to go inside where I was then promptly searched for the third time when I re-entered the station.

During the entire four hours I was inside the Orlando bus station, I just glared at him as he would periodically march around the area with all the self importance of an SS officer while always glancing over my way. So, I thought I would have a little fun…

I kept moving around to see if he was purposely watching me, and each time I moved he would look around to see where I was, and each time he did he was met with a glare until he would finally turn away. When he did, I would move again. These are the punks who are supposedly keeping us safe from the invisible boogeymen lurking amongst us? Welcome to Amerika!

I got on my bus without further incident, and when I arrived in Melbourne, a Limo service was awaiting to take me to my final destination on this leg of the journey.

It truly was sad as I peered out at America through the looking glass, a country I once honorably served as a US Marine and yet no longer recognize… – SJH
