Recognizing 9/11 as an evil US CRIME: an analogy

9/11 began a fraud by the US upon the world through unlawful Wars of Aggression. The crime of 9/11 as to who did what, when, where, and related facts for analysis of why is a separate, challenging, and revealing topic I defer to others (such as here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, for your consideration).
I’ll stick to the easy explanation and documentation to prove US/UK/UN unlawful Wars of Aggressionafter 9/11.
In this effort, analogies can help put facts into perspective; the following population analogies are mathematically accurate representing the US (United City), Afghanistan (Afghan City), Iraq (Tigris City), and Iran (Tehrangeles) as having a population of 100,000. Documentation of the facts are after the analogy.
Once upon a time… you live in United City with a population of 100,000. On September 11, 2001, a reported ‘suicide’ car driver downtown kills one person and injures two. Media and your mayor, Dick Tator, blame a ‘terrorist’ who resides in Afghan City, and demand extradition. The mayor of Afghan City expresses condolences, and agrees to arrest anyone of the crime of 9/11, or any other crime, upon presentment of evidence. The FBI claim jurisdiction, and order cooperation for factual discovery of all involved to have lawful arrests and prosecutions for this crime. Dick Tator refuses to provide any evidence, then violates the FBI order with the following actions against Afghan City, nearby Tigris City, and Tehrangeles:

More Lies: NFL Had Rice Tape In April

In a world of no consequences and where lying is justified “when it’s serious enough,” it is hardly surprising that mere hours after stating unequivocally that none of the law enforcement entities the league approached “was permitted to provide any video or other investigatory material to us,” AP reports that, in fact, a law enforcement official says he sent a video of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee to an NFL executive five months ago. More lies – but then we are sure, just as we have heard many times before, Roger Goodell was ‘unaware’ of the situation…

Elizabeth Warren: Jamie Dimon Gets $8.5 Million Raise for Illegal Conduct at JPMorgan

Sparks were flying yesterday in what is typically a snooze-worthy Senate session. It felt like alien body snatchers had decided to remove the zombies and return the real U. S. Senators to their chairs on the Senate Banking Committee. Senators, right and left, asked tough, probing questions of the nation’s banking regulators, leaving many squirming in their chairs.
The session was so unusual that Senator Elizabeth Warren, a Democrat from Massachusetts, and Senator Richard Shelby, a Republican from Alabama, closed out the session in complete agreement that there is something seriously broken about the justice system in America.
Senator Warren told the hearing that in the past year, three of the nation’s largest banks – JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup and Bank of America – have admitted breaking the law and settled the claims for $35 billion. The Senator continued:
‘As Judge Rakoff of the Southern District of New York has noted, the law on this is clear. No corporation can break the law unless an individual within that corporation broke the law. Yet, despite the misconduct at these banks that generated tens of billions of dollars in settlement payments by the companies, not a single senior executive at these banks has been criminally prosecuted. Now, I know that your agencies can’t bring prosecutions directly, but you’re supposed to refer cases to the Justice Department when you think individuals should be prosecuted. So, can you tell me how many senior executives at these three banks you have referred to the Justice Department for prosecution?’

OBAMA SET TO IGNORE CONGRESS, ANNOUNCE SYRIA STRIKES TONIGHT

President Barack Obama is set to ignore Congress once again by launching military strikes inside Syria without consulting lawmakers, a move that threatens to enflame the entire region given that the Assad government has repeatedly insisted it will consider any military activity inside Syrian territory as an act of war.
‘President Obama is prepared to use U. S. military airstrikes in Syria as part of an expanded campaign to defeat the Islamic State and does not believe he needs formal congressional approval to take that action, according to people who have spoken with the president in recent days,’reports the Washington Post.
Obama is set to deliver a prime time speech tonight during which he will make the case for U. S. air strikes inside Syria in the name of targeting ISIS militants.
In citing ISIS, which was armed and funded by the United States’ biggest allies in the region, as a justification for a military campaign inside Syria, Obama is set to accomplish what the administration failed to achieve last year after the chemical weapons attack in Ghouta was blamed on the Assad government, despite a subsequent MIT report which concluded the incident was more likely the work of US-backed rebels.

Mapping Record US Obesity By State

Adult obesity rates remained high overall, increased in six states (Alaska, Delaware, Idaho, New Jersey, Tennessee and Wyoming) in the past year, and did not decrease in any. According to a new report, despite the plunge in McDonalds’ Sales, rates of obesity now exceed 35% for the first time in two states, are at or above 30% in 20 states and are not below 21% in any. Mississippi and West Virginia tied for having the highest adult obesity rate in the United States at 35.1%, while Colorado had the lowest at 21.3%. Nine out of the 10 states with the highest obesity rates are in the South.

Staged Foley, Sotloff Beheading Videos ‘Not Evidence’, US Determined to Wage War of Fear on Its Own People

To those who were paying attention, the ‘beheading’ videos of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff do not actually show anyone being beheaded, but that hasn’t stopped the entire US government machine from shifting into full-blown overseas war mode this week.
Much has been made of these two videos, yet, both are nothing more than crudely constructed propaganda videos, designed to start a new war at home, and abroad.
The beheading videos have been accompanied by hundreds of hours of ISIS footage and reports of ISIS violence in Iraq and Syria. Predictably, the public reaction is outrage and fear. With the help of US and European multinational-owned TV networks, the videos have triggered an artificial tidal wave of national hysteria, and for the first time in history, America has a declaration of war based on two YouTube videos created and uploaded by persons unknown.
Is is possible that both these video could be depicting brutal murders? Yes, of course it’s possible, but there are still many unanswered questions.
Perfect PR
For both ISIS and the Pentagon, the PR campaign has been nothing short of masterful.
This latest ISIS crisis has been flawless in terms of media execution and timing, as the anniversary of Sept. 11th approaches again and as other major global stories have expended themselves.

NEW POLICE ‘COMPLIANCE WEAPON’ BLINDS TARGETS

A firm that provides non-lethal equipment to law enforcement is set to release a new ‘compliance weapon’ that temporarily blinds targets for up to 15 minutes, amidst a national conversation about the militarization of police in the aftermath of unrest in Ferguson, Missouri.
Shield Defense Systems, LLC, a company based in Reno, Nevada, is currently developing the Z-RO ‘retinal obfuscation’ gun. According to the firm’s website, the weapon, ‘Obstructs the target’s vision temporarily for up to 10-15 minutes via proprietary technology when deployed on engaged mark.’
Or in other words, despite coming under intense scrutiny over their treatment of protesters and journalists in Ferguson, militarized police departments are about to get their hands on a new toy that blinds people. The weapon will be available for purchase in December.
The company claims that the weapon inflicts no lasting damage on the target and does not harm their retina and cornea, although we heard the same thing about taser weapons which have killed over 500 people in the United States since 2001.

The Psychological Reasons Why American Soldiers Would Fire On American Citizens

We live in chaotic times. Many feel that our fragile economy could come crashing down at any time. One devastating terrorist attack, false flag attack or natural disaster could lead to an unprecedented disaster and martial law would be declared. Some Americans would take to the streets and the only remaining question is whether or not American soldiers, called to the scene, would restore order by firing upon American citizens when ordered to do so?
This scenario and the resulting public execution of American citizens for engaging in protesting has happened many times in our past. For those old enough to remember, the 1970 Kent State massacre should come to mind as the Ohio National Guard opened fire on protesting college students on the campus of Kent State University. But for those who believe that this was merely an anomaly, let’s examine what the field of psychology has discovered about the answer to this question.
The Oath Keepers Cannot Save Protesters
Some our citizens are deluded into a false sense of security by the group known as Oath Keepers. It is a well-intentioned effort to remind both law enforcement and the military to uphold the Constitution and to disobey unlawful orders which would bring harm to American citizens. Under this false sense of security, many in the American public really believe that American troops will not fire upon American citizens. Unfortunately, the field of psychology demonstrates why only a minority of soldiers will actually resist committing atrocities against the American people.
Conformity to Group Norms: The Solomon Asch Experiment
Do you think of yourself as a conformist or a non-conformist? If you ask most people the same question, you would find that most people consider themselves to be a non-conformist and would be able to stand up to a group when they know they are right. However, can nonconformists actually resist the peer pressure to blend in with the rest of their peers?
In the 1950′s, Polish born psychologist, Solomon Asch, conducted a conformity study. The participants signed up to participate in a psychology experiment in which they are asked to complete a vision test. This was a deception. The real experiment attempted to answer the question, can people resist peer pressure to conform to a false belief?
Seated in a room with the other participants, the research participants are shown a line segment and then asked to choose the matching line from a group three segments of different lengths.

Why the Ukraine Crisis Is the West’s Fault: Foreign Affairs

According to the prevailing wisdom in the West, the Ukraine crisis can be blamed almost entirely on Russian aggression. Russian President Vladimir Putin, the argument goes, annexed Crimea out of a long-standing desire to resuscitate the Soviet empire, and he may eventually go after the rest of Ukraine, as well as other countries in eastern Europe. In this view, the ouster of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych in February 2014 merely provided a pretext for Putin’s decision to order Russian forces to seize part of Ukraine.
But this account is wrong: the United States and its European allies share most of the responsibility for the crisis. The taproot of the trouble is NATO enlargement, the central element of a larger strategy to move Ukraine out of Russia’s orbit and integrate it into the West. At the same time, the E.U.’s expansion eastward and the West’s backing of the pro-democracy movement in Ukraine — beginning with the Orange Revolution in 2004 — were critical elements, too. Since the mid-1990s, Russian leaders have adamantly opposed NATO enlargement, and in recent years, they have made it clear that they would not stand by while their strategically important neighbor turned into a Western bastion. For Putin, the illegal overthrow of Ukraine’s democratically elected and pro-Russian president — which he rightly labeled a “coup” — was the final straw. He responded by taking Crimea, a peninsula he feared would host a NATO naval base, and working to destabilize Ukraine until it abandoned its efforts to join the West. 
Putin’s push back should have come as no surprise. After all, the West had been moving into Russia’s backyard and threatening its core strategic interests, a point Putin made emphatically and repeatedly. Elites in the United States and Europe have been blindsided by events only because they subscribe to a flawed view of international politics. They tend to believe that the logic of realism holds little relevance in the twenty-first century and that Europe can be kept whole and free on the basis of such liberal principles as the rule of law, economic interdependence, and democracy.

Serve and Protect is Now ‘Search and Destroy’

Anyone who has been paying attention is aware that we have a growing domestic terrorism problem here in America.
And by domestic terrorism, I mean our militarized police departments.
Here’s how the FBI defines domestic terrorism, from their website:
‘Domestic terrorism’ means activities with the following three characteristics:
Involve acts dangerous to human life that violate federal or state law; Appear intended to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; Occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the U. S. Indeed, uniformed thugs police officers kill more Americans every year than terrorists do. In fact, we are eight times more likely to be killed by a cop than by a ‘terrorist.’

Trump Entertainment Files Bankruptcy For Fourth Time: Even The Donald Is Embarrassed To Be Associated

When it comes to the slow-motion cataclysm that is Atlantic City, where as we reported recently the Revel Casino recently filed its second and final liquidation bankruptcy, no other name has seen more bankruptcies than Donald Trump. Or rather Trump Entertainment, because nowadays the two are anything but synonymous. In fact, the Donald is so embarrassed of his namesake legacy that a month ago he filed a lawsuit demanding that his name be stripped from the hotels making up the former.
As the AP reported at the time, “the real estate mogul said he had sued Trump Entertainment Resorts, a descendant of a corporate entity he once controlled, because it has allowed its two Atlantic City casinos, the Trump Plaza and the Trump Taj Mahal, to fall into disrepair, tarnishing his personal brand and confusing customers. “I want it off both of them,” Trump said Tuesday evening. “I’ve been away from Atlantic City for many years. People think we operate [the company], and we don’t. It’s not us. It’s not me.”

Scotland’s Independence Movement Gains Lead in Polls

Oops! Globalists everywhere must be horrified. It seems the Scots might after all go for becoming an independent nation. It should be remembered here that Scotland only joined the Union in the early 1700ds – and did so voluntarily, sort of. Actually, many Scottish nobles had been bankrupted in the ‘Darien Scheme’ – an attempt to establish a trading colony named Caledonia in Panama, which went horribly wrong – which weakened their resistance to signing the Act of Union.
Numerous attempts to incorporate Scotland into a larger political entity by military force had failed since Roman times. The Romans probably realized that the North wasn’t worth it when the Picts on one occasion almost completely destroyed the 9th Legion. Even though the Romans later won the battle of Mons Graupius, they never succeeded in actually subduing the area. The Romans then decided to erect Hadrian’s Wall, so as to simply keep the Picts and other tribes out, many of which had acquired a fearsome reputation.
A later rather famous conqueror of England, William of Normandy, proved very successful in his conquests and soon had England under control, ending the line of the Wessex kings. While he actually defeated Malcolm III of Scotland in battle in 1072, he didn’t get Scotland – instead, it is considered likely by historians that he only got Malcolm’s son Douglas as a hostage to ensure the former’s adherence to the peace treaty.
Anyway, until the Act of Union in 1707, Scotland has always been an independent country. Even after the union, it retained its own legal system (which is based, curiously enough, on Roman law). From the beginning of the 19th century onward, political devolution was increasingly demanded, and granted bit by bit, until Scotland finally got a parliament of its own again in 1998 (incidentally also in the wake of a referendum).
In short, Scotland is actually uniquely well positioned for independence, as it has all the institutions in place that are widely held to be required for statehood. Obviously, it would be even better for it to become a capitalist anarchy, but one must take whatever one can get. In Dr. Walker’s article on Scottish Independence, many of the philosophical and economic questions surrounding the issue were already discussed in great detail (See ‘Scottish Independence’ Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3).

DHS Wants to Tag Us Before They Bag Us: The Enhanced Drivers License

On Steve Quayle’s ‘Q Alert’ page, he recently posted the following warning from an Arizona resident:
Q Alert
Hi Steve,
I live in Az and just went to get my drivers license renewed. They handed me a paper with my photo on it and said my new license would be mailed in about 2 weeks. It says it is an ENHANCED DRIVERS LICENSE or EDL. A cursory internet search reveals at least 6 other states are implementing it and that it has a microchip in it that can be read up to 30 feet away. Contains your fingerprint and biometric data and is linked to multiple databases. In other words it is a REAL ID just under a diffrrent name! The American people wholeheartedly rejected the REAL ID yet they are going forwad with it anyway by giving it a different name. Please get the warning out. JK in Az
Sep 5, 2014
Official Existence of the EDL Program I have searched the local media archives in Arizona and cannot confirm the authenticity of this report. However, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has validated the existence of this program with an admission that the Enhanced Drivers License is indeed a reality in a July, 28, 2014 report. Additionally, an extensive search revealed that Arizona Revised Statutes section 28-3153(D) provides information and the rationale for the existence of the EDL.
I live in Arizona and there was no media coverage of this whatsoever. It is as if someone just placed this law into Arizona’s Revised Statutes. This was totally done by stealth and history shows that this is a very bad development!
In effect, this, virtually unpublicized national and soon-to-be global ID card will serve as a permission slip to do all of the ordinary things that you presently have the right to do as an ordinary American citizen. Of course, if you are one of the governmental traitors who have perpetrated this fraud upon the people of the United States, and your intention is to eliminate U. S. sovereignty by requiring American citizens to become a part of a global identification system, then this is a requisite step in this treasonous give away of our country.

1,500 mental health patients have been drugged and sent to die alone by Nevada-run hospital since 2008, lawsuit claims

The mental healthcare systems in this nation are even worse than the hospital system. Staffs are underpaid, and institutions release mental patients to cut expenses. These people are sent out onto the streets with a handful of psychiatric drugs, adding to the homeless, among whom many are vets that the VA Hospital system can’t or won’t handle. Many of the vets, even those who are not homeless, wind up committing suicide, up to 22 per day! Many of the non-veterans wind up with nowhere to go but the streets and become victims of brutal crimes or land in jails themselves, which is the worst place for mentally ill patients to be. According to the sources below, state-run mental institutions started shutting down in the 1950s as part of changing social attitudes and a movement to de-institutionalize mental illness. And the Federal Government wanted to cut out funding state-run mental institutions. Medicaid announced that they would only finance care for the mentally ill in private mental institutions or nursing homes. But state-run mental institutions have been where the majority of mentally ill and insane people were committed. Not anymore. They’re being released out into the public domain, even if they have no job skills or nowhere to go or no one to help them. In other words, onto the streets or into jails.

Under Pressure From Democrats, Obama Delays Immigration Action Until After Midterm Elections

In June, President Obama promised executive action on immigration.
He lied.
With polls showing a mere 26% Approval Rating for Obama’s Immigration Reform Policies, the president bowed to political pressure from his own party and delayed his immigration cram-downs until after the mid-term elections.
Please consider Obama to Delay Executive Action on Immigration.
President Barack Obama will delay executive action on immigration until after the midterm elections, White House officials said Saturday, a bow to political pressure from Democrats in tough Senate races who had complained the action could hurt their campaigns.
The delay breaks Obama’s promise, broadcast from the Rose Garden in June, that he would act on his own by summer’s end to fix as many problems of the immigration system as the law allows.

SCHOOL COPS ACROSS TEXAS RECEIVING SURPLUS MILITARY GEAR

Militarized police pose greater threat to students than terrorists
Law enforcement units policing public schools in Texas have acquired tons of used military gear, including M16 rifles, armored vehicles and scores of ‘high capacity magazines,’ all in alleged efforts to keep students safe.
Citing the shootings at Columbine and Sandy Hook as pretexts for the need to militarize school police, an investigation launched by CBS affiliate KHOU recently found that cops in at least 10 different Texas school districts are seemingly gearing up for war.
‘In all, the departments received 64 M16 rifles, 18 M14 rifles, 25 automatic pistols, and magazines capable of holding 4,500 rounds of ammunition as well armored plating, tactical vests, and 15 surplus military vehicles,’ reports KHOU.
It’s likely schools across the state and as far south as the Rio Grande Valley have been equipped, at little or no cost, through the Department of Defense’s Section 1033 weapons transfer program, which has also facilitated the distribution of used high grade weaponry, such as grenade launchers and tracked tank vehicles, to various local police departments in the U. S.

Europol Chief Takes Instructions on Document Access from Americans

The head of the E.U. police agency Europol is taking instructions from the Americans on what EU-drafted documents he can and cannot release to E.U. lawmakers.
The issue came up over the summer when U.S. ambassador to the E.U. Anthony Gardner told E.U. ombudsman Emily O’Reilly she cannot inspect an annual Europol report drafted by the agency’s own internal data protection review board.
The report describes how data concerning E.U. citizens and residents is transferred to the US.

Barclays is Launching Finger Scanner that Scans a Person’s Blood Flow to Access Account

It’s hard for an article to be simultaneously disturbing and amusing, but this morning’s article in the UK Telegraph about Barclays’ new blood vein finger scanner does just that.
What’s truly incredible about the article is Ashok Vaswani’s (chief executive of Barclays personal and corporate banking) purported obsession with fighting criminality, when in reality there appear to be few bigger criminal enterprises on earth than Barclays itself.
We are told the following about Barclays’ ostensible commitment to the rule of law:
Mr Vaswani said Barclays was improving technology and security, but criminals were also getting more sophisticated.
‘You can’t let these guys create a breach in the dam. You’ve got to constantly stay ahead of the game,’ he told Reuters.

The American Bankers Association and the Quiet War on Students

College students and graduates around the nation are buried in debt and trying to succeed in an extremely difficult and competitive economic environment. Many people are graduating only to find that they are unable to get the jobs they want either due to the small number of available positions or, more usually, the problem that they lack ‘experience’ – and are thus reduced to working menial jobs while paying back exorbitant loans.
So far very little legislation has been passed to aid students in paying back their loans, and many blame politicians. However, the situation goes deeper than this and lies, in part, with a little-known institution called the American Bankers Association.
According to its website, the ABA is ‘the voice of the nation’s $14 trillion banking industry, which is composed of small, regional and large banks that together employ more than 2 million people, safeguard $11 trillion in deposits and extend nearly $8 trillion in loans.’ The ABA believes that ‘laws and regulations should be tailored to correspond to a bank’s charter, business model, geography and risk profile.’
While it’s obvious that the American Bankers Association works in the interest of bankers, the organization has an intriguing history regarding student loans and the way it has actively fought against the interests of students.
