OpEdNews - Article: Romney's Prep School Bully Portrait And Why "Dumb Things" Doesn't Wash: A Very Personal View.

OpEdNews - Article: Romney's Prep School Bully Portrait And Why "Dumb Things" Doesn't Wash: A Very Personal View.: He knew. He remembered ... and he knew. Bullies always remember their exploits: they brag about them enough to keep them fresh for a long while. They especially brag about their exploits in terms of sexuality: beating up fags is as much of a right of passage as having intercourse with members of the opposite sex. In extreme cases, sometimes sodomizing (gang-raping) an effeminate boy was also a right of passage. Showers and locker rooms were not always the safest places to be, especially if you had a limp wrist.

Hillary Clinton's Silence Is Deafening on Massive Palestinian Prisoner Hunger Strike

Hillary Clinton's Silence Is Deafening on Massive Palestinian Prisoner Hunger Strike: Writing in Salon about President Obama's historic declaration that gay marriage should be legal, Glenn Greenwald makes a point that should be obvious, but seems to have escaped many people who consider themselves savvy about politics: if you support the Obama administration no matter what it does, or oppose the Obama administration no matter what it does, you are likely to be an impotent political actor. Sometimes, the Obama administration is good, and sometimes it's bad, and the point is to increase the good and decrease the bad: "power concedes nothing without a demand."

People without valid information are helpless, and that is where Western peoples are. The new tyranny is arising in the West, not in Russia and China. The danger to humanity is in the nuclear button briefcase in the Oval Office and in the brainwashed and militant Amerikan population, the most totally disinformed and ignorant people on earth.

 American Atrocities: Not Who We Are? Really?       : Information Clearing House

 American Atrocities: Not Who We Are? Really?       : Information Clearing House: The same kind of thing happens in the case of police and federal law enforcement officials. Increasingly militarized themselves, they are trained to believe not that their duty is to “protect and serve” or to uphold the nation’s freedoms and liberty, but rather that they are centurions tasked with enforcing “order” and protecting property--generally government property and the property of the wealthy. The general public then becomes a kind of “enemy” to be subdued with whatever force is necessary. Those who stand up for their rights under the law are perceived as threats to the authority of the enforcers, and are dealt with as enemies, to be beaten, pepper-sprayed in the face, spied upon and locked up.

   US attack kills 5 Afghan kids     : Information Clearing House

   US attack kills 5 Afghan kids     : Information Clearing House: Yesterday — a week after it leaked that it was escalating its drone strikes in Yemen — the Obama administration claimed that the CIA last month disrupted a scary plot originating in Yemen to explode an American civilian jet “using a more sophisticated version of the underwear bomb deployed unsuccessfully in 2009.” American media outlets — especially its cable news networks — erupted with their predictable mix of obsessive hysteria, excitement and moral outrage. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer last night devoted the bulk of his show to this plot, parading the standard cast of characters — former Bush Homeland Security adviser (and terrorist advocate) Fran Townsend and its “national security analyst” Peter Bergen — to put on their Serious and Concerned faces, recite from the U.S. Government script, and analyze all the profound implications. CNN even hauled out Rep. Peter King to warn that this shows a “new level” of Terror threats from Yemen. CNN’s fixation on this plot continued into this morning.

As you can clearly see, these evil geniuses were a clear and present threat to America's national security. If the FBI hadn't stopped them in Cleveland, no doubt they would have gone on to break the Pentagon's high security encryption, acquire the launch codes to nuclear missiles, and unleash a global thermonuclear war through sheer brain power alone.

OpEdNews - Article: Disinformation On Every Front

OpEdNews - Article: Disinformation On Every Front: James W. Douglass in his documented book, JFK and the Unspeakable, attributes the assassination of President John F. Kennedy to the CIA, Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Secret Service. Douglas reports that these powerful government institutions were concerned by Kennedy's refusal to approve Operation Northwoods, to back the CIA's invasion of Cuba, and to confront the Soviets militarily over the Cuban missile crisis and by Kennedy's plans to end US military intervention in Vietnam. JFK also told his brother Robert that after his re-election he was going to break the CIA into a thousand pieces.
