U.S. Adds Forces in Persian Gulf, a Signal to Iran – NYTimes.com

U.S. Adds Forces in Persian Gulf, a Signal to Iran – NYTimes.com.

WASHINGTON — The United States has quietly moved significant military reinforcements into the Persian Gulf to deter the Iranian military from any possible attempt to shut the Strait of Hormuz and to increase the number of fighter jets capable of striking deep into Iran if the standoff over its nuclear program escalates.

 

The deployments are part of a long-planned effort to bolster the American military presence in the gulf region, in part to reassure Israel that in dealing with Iran, as one senior administration official put it last week, “When the president says there are other options on the table beyond negotiations, he means it.”

 

But at a moment that the United States and its allies are beginning to enforce a much broader embargo on Iran’s oil exports, meant to force the country to take seriously the negotiations over sharply limiting its nuclear program, the buildup carries significant risks, including that Iran’s powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps could decide to lash out against the increased presence.

 

The most visible elements of this buildup are Navy ships designed to vastly enhance the ability to patrol the Strait of Hormuz — and to reopen the narrow waterway should Iran attempt to mine it to prevent Saudi Arabia and other oil exporters from sending their tankers through the vital passage.

 

The Navy has doubled the number of minesweepers assigned to the region, to eight vessels, in what military officers describe as a purely defensive move.

 

“The message to Iran is, ‘Don’t even think about it,’ ” one senior Defense Department official said. “Don’t even think about closing the strait. We’ll clear the mines. Don’t even think about sending your fast boats out to harass our vessels or commercial shipping. We’ll put them on the bottom of the gulf.” Like others interviewed, the official spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the delicacy of the diplomatic and military situation.

CNBC Admits “We are absolutely slaves to central banks.”

28 Jun

About ten days ago, I had a revelation and was going to do a piece on all the foreign policy experts’ and NGOs’ statements and reports I’ve come across, as well as other indicators that global governance is here. Within 10 days of realizing that the shadow government is willingly revealing itself, the mainstream media admits that we are indeed “absolutely slaves to central banks.” This has never been a secret, but people just can’t believe it until the t.v. says it is okay to do so. Now back to your regularly scheduled programming

Words Well-Said: Thoughts From Around the Web ‘Fast & Furious’ (with video)

24 Jun

Sometimes I see bits of wisdom, new perspectives, clever humor, and other fearless ways of dropping  serious knowledge bombs on FaceBook, comment sections, twitter, etc and I’d like to start sharing them.

This came from the FaceBook wall of a reader who wishes to remain anonymous. In a comment on a post about Fast and Furious on the reader’s wall, someone brought up “the race card,” in regards to the Eric Holder contempt charges, accusing the “other side” of using it. I personally have not seen any evidence indicating that this busted conspiracy is about race. I’ve heard theories supposedly held by right wing nuts, but they were so far from any popular theory I’ve heard, and didn’t come close to what the majority of the liberty movement  believes, that the ideas seem to have been propagated, or at least perpetuated, by the left to discredit those willing to say “the emperor has no clothes.”   This is what the TimeTimes reader had to say:

English: Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder o...

English: Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder opened an Interagency Working Group meeting of the White House Initiative on Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders hosted by the Department of Justice on October 18, 2000, which addressed LEPissues. In the immediate background, White House representative Irene Bueno, Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Bill Lann Lee, and Community Relations Service Director Rose Ochi look on.

“All I’ll say on that is that I have seen both Caucasians and African Americans throw it around. It’s a ridiculous, intentionally divisive distraction that incites the nastiest side of humans, and prevents us from getting down to the real issue, which is that Eric Holder is a traitor and conspirator against the US. And with Obama having used executive privilege to hide what could be (is) incriminating documents, more suspicions are raised. It’s US the PEOPLE vs THEM the GOVERNMENT. We have to forget this petty shit. Oh and check it out, looks like Obama has used exec privilege with Holder in the past.”

Excerpts From thedailycaller.com:

“According to the Los Angeles Times, Holder drafted an “options memo” that allowed Clinton to grant commutations to the terrorists in the late 1990s when several high-ranking Department of Justice officials opposed the move. That options memo effectively facilitated clemency for those terrorists. Holder went against the DOJ’s Pardon Attorney Roger Adams’strong opposition to any clemency in several internal memos and a draft report recommending denial” and pushed to get the terrorists’ sentences commuted.”

“Though that memo itself is still protected by Clinton’s executive privilege and has not been made public, members of Clinton’s administration, including Holder, were allowed to talk about it and anything else to do with the pardons, commutations and grants of clemency after Clinton waived the executive privilege after leaving office.”

“Fast-forward to shortly after President Barack Obama was elected. He had nominated Holder to be the United States Attorney General and Cornyn was pressing him to testify about the details of those FALN terrorist commutations. When asked to testify about the options memo, Holder claimed under oath in the congressional record that he was “not authorized” to do so.” (my emphasis added)

LOST is Centralized Control of the World by the UN

June 9th, 2012

The UN’s Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST) will deliver American sovereignty and seven-tenths of the world’s surface through allocation of oceans and seas to the UN by way of the entanglement of global bureaucracy.

Over three decades ago, then President Ronald Regan rejected LOST, saying “no national interest of the United States could justify handing sovereign control of two-thirds of the Earth’s surface over to the Third World.”

The writers of LOST want to give the UN power to draw oceanic boundaries to impose environmental regulations and restrict business on the high seas.

LOST would give critical US naval and drilling operational decision making and final word to the UN.

Regan believed LOST was an “effort to promote global government at the expense of sovereign nation states — and most especially the United States.”
On Capitol Hill, supporters of LOST include Senators Richard Lugar (who now heads the Senate Foreign Relations Committee), Chuck Hagel, John Warner, Trent Lot.

The coalition of the US Navy, multi-national oil corporations led by Shall and radical environmentalist lawyers are providing advocacy for the UN’s usurpation of our individual rights as an independent nation.

Big oil supports LOST because of its provisional extension of jurisdiction over the continental shelf beyond the current 200 mile limit.

However, LOST requires that royalties of between 1 and 7% be paid to the International Seabed Authority (ISA) on the value of oil and minerals produced from those waters.

Effectively, the UN would regulate offshore and deep-sea production all over the world. The financing would come from American taxpayers. The taxation collected by the ISA would be redirected to the UN.

Larry Bell of Forbes magazine wrote that “as much as 7 percent of U.S. government revenue that is collected from oil and gas companies operating off our coast” and then reallocated by the UN to “poorer, landlocked countries.”

In the name of environmental justice, trillions of dollars would be siphoned from Americans.

Arrested For Spitting, Is this Singapore or the U.S.A.? Neither (And other ways we’re screwed)

6 Jun

Read “Florida Man arrested for Spitting on Sidewalk“and see video at TBO.com

Warning:  This piece is riddled with personal opinion, sarcasm, insults, political incorrectness, bad attitude, and a little foul language, but it does provide a nice handful of important information as well.  Enjoy!

Joseph Stoiber, a self-proclaimed insomniac, was out for an early a.m. stroll, talking on his cell phone, when a police officer approached him and questioned his motives for…gasp…walking around a supposedly free country.  The officer asked to pat him down, as he legally has the right to do, even though it is absurd and repugnant to the Constitution, but Joseph Stoiber refused, as he has every legal right to do because the cop had no probable cause.  The cop and the Stoiber started disputing the really simple, obvious legality of  Stoiber, an American citizen guilty of no crime, nor suspicious of committing any crime, walking about his own country in the morning hours and refusing a warrantless search.

“Things got heated” (read: Cop’s ego couldn’t handle legally being told “no” by a lowly citizen) and Stoiber was handcuffed.  He then committed the unthinkable crime of spitting on a sidewalk because he had chewing tobacco in his mouth.   Stoiber was then arrested, because it is illegal to spit on the sidewalk in Florida

World Economic Forum on the Middle East, North Africa and Eurasia 2012

Bridging Regions in Transformation
Istanbul, Turkey 4-6 June 2012

Blue Mosque and Bosphorus

The pace and complexity of global change in recent years have been unprecedented, with Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia emerging as a key mega-region of the future.

The World Economic Forum on Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia will therefore convene over 1,000 leaders in Istanbul, Turkey, to catalyse new partnerships for growth and human development.

  • In light of the global economic contraction, how can governments and business leaders design and deliver new models to drive innovation and economic agility across this mega-region?
  • How can the region strengthen energy cooperation and deliver the high-value trade and investment in science and research that are critical to knowledge economies?
  • How can the social dynamism unlocked by developments in the Middle East and North Africa be transformed into a decade of entrepreneurial opportunity, human security and good governance?

Iran-Contra Documentaries and Seymour Hersh 2007 Video: Iran-Contra Has Returned, U.S. Funds Al Qaeda

29 May

Here is another example showing that a ruling elite is not a secret.  Our government is NOT “our government” any longer.  Watch this, and then view the Iran-Contra documentaries below it.  If you don’t have time to watch them now, be sure to bookmark them and watch them later.  The information is vital to understanding the current situation in the world.

This is an older documentary but it’s really informative.  It discusses the Iran-Contra affair and the shadow government that has taken control.   It’s not sensational.  MUST-see.

 

This segment specifically discusses the shadow government, although it is a constant theme throughout the entire film.

 

This is a great documentary explaining the connections between Iran-Contra and the drug war, specifically the crack epidemic.  It also explains Afghanistan, opium, the war on terror, and the war on drugs.  It’s another MUST-see.

 

Sinking in yet?

  • Our government is not “our government” any longer.  It has been taken over by powerful, rich elites, primarily bankers and those in the business of war, who work outside the laws of the U.S. without any oversight.  In the Iran-Contra documentary, they refer to the group  as “The Enterprise.”
  • This government, or “The Enterprise”, has used terrorism to take away our freedom.
  • This government funds the terrorists they claim to protect us from.
  • This government does not care about me or you.  They care about keeping control of me and you.
  • A vast majority of “our” representatives are bought off and fearful of the elites.
  • The DHS’s new mission is to focus on the American people, not terrorists, as it was created to do.
  • All electronic communications are monitored, recorded, and stored.  This includes phone calls, text messages, instant messages, email, every website visited, Skype, any voice programs, e-wallets, and anything else I have forgotten or that has yet to be introduced or created.
  • This government overthrows democratic and non-democratic foreign governments, often by proxy, using “rebel forces” that are sometimes imported.
  • George W. Bush wasn’t a conservative; he was a puppet of the elite.
  • The destabilization and takeover of the middle east was planned in the 1970’s, with credit going to Henry Kissinger
  • The story lines you have been fed about terrorist attacks have morphed over the years.  Looking back on old news articles and T.V. news reports, it is very clear that we have been manipulated, that the narratives have changed to fit the agenda of the elites.
  1. We see this happening today with the CIA agent who stopped the new underwear bomber by giving a bomb to the would-be terrorist and then bravely (sarcasm)  taking it back.  The CIA agent has since turned into a double agent for Saudi Arabia, and the non-plot turned into a grand scheme to blow up an airliner.
  2. In Syria, the “U.S.” aka shadow government is funding the terrorists who murdered at least some of the 90 people killed in the Houla massacre.  The massacre is now blamed on the Syrian government, even though the Syrian people and Russia are accusing foreign countries, Syria naming the U.S., of funding imported terrorists.  Some of the people who were killed in the massacre were shot at close range, some in the head and face, suggesting they weren’t murdered by shelling from tanks, as the shadow government wants us to believe.
  • Environmentalism is used to take control of the people.  The Smart Grid, smart appliances and the intelligent transportation system will be the final nail in the coffin once fully implemented, monitoring every aspect of life, complete with rationing laws and remotely controlled water and electricity.
  • Things will not get better unless we come together, utilize our combined strength (which is our new ideas and the power of many voices shouting in unison), and make things better.  The ruling powers will not one day just return our freedom to us.
  • Nearly all media is controlled by six corporations and is highly censored.  See infographic below from frugaldad.com

We are not free.  It is time to start thinking of solutions for serious government reform.   Capitol Hill and the White House need to be swept clean and sterilized from top to bottom, in my 100% non-expert opinion.  There are a few representatives who seem worthy of keeping their positions, but the majority need to step down or be removed.  Laws need to be retracted, prisons need to be taken out of the private sector, petty arrests and imprisonment must stop, the police forces must be de-militarized, the military budget must be reduced, the DHS, TSA, NSA, and FEMA must be eliminated.  Of course, I am not knowledgeable enough to have any real ideas or strategies, and I honestly have no business speaking on a subject that I am so ignorant about, but my point is we need real change, not the kind peddled by Prez B.O.  To me this means no longer compromising integrity by working within the corrupt system, but wiping the current program from the hard drive of America and firing the programmers, essentially, we must have some form of revolution.  Perhaps there is a way to do this less dramatically, again, I do not have the expertise to voice any real ideas (but I’ll continue to do so anyway.)

Regardless of what kind of revolution, I believe a great change will be trying, stressful and bring certain negative consequences, but I have no idea to what degree we will suffer or sacrifice.  We may enter a period of destabilization, while highly undesirable, it seems it could be  a possible outcome of trying to establish a government “of the people, by the people, for the people,” a system that is more than an illusion of freedom.   However, I fear many will choose to be comfortably numb slaves over bleeding freedom fighters.  I do not think they’ll even be aware that they are not free.  And I fear they may indeed “love their servitude.”  Again, I don’t really know what I’m talking about so please don’t judge my rambling too harshly.
