Netanyahu and AIPAC Do Not Represent The Jews on Iran--Neither Do Romney and Santorum

Below is an article about what you will not hear on network mainstream news, or local talk radio, who pretend there is an absolute necessity of "stopping Iran from obtaining a [alleged] nuclear weapon", as if there is no dissent among Jews or Israel.  And what Americans think should be more influential to Congress and the President than AIPAC's heavy-handed lobby and the other propaganda arms to influence U.S. foreign policy (which will surely effect both gas prices and the entire economy, as well as global stability).

And in case you missed it, the former head of Mossad was interviewed on 60 Minutes, after he called a pre-emptive strike on Iran "stupid"!  Video here. 

A preemptive attack on Iran? US Jews are deeply divided.

The AIPAC conference in Washington elicited one hawkish pronouncement after another from US leaders. But American Jews are deeply split over how to deal with Iran's nuclear aspirations.

Spooky iSpy: Feds Defiantly Expanding 'Big Brother' Surveillance on Americans

The Federal power grab continues now under Obama as much as it did under Bush.  Now we did not expect any "change" for the better.  Obama has only tried to add the Nanny State to Bush's Security State, neither of which is Constitutional government.  (And the prospects for the next Presidential election are no better).  It is apparent that the Feds have found a way to circumvent the fact that Congress banned them from setting up their "Total Information Awareness" program, previously attempted under DARPA.  Under the plea of "necessity", for "counter-terrorism" purposes of course, they are resurrecting total electronic surveillance on American emails and phone calls, clearly unlawful per the 4th amendment of the Constitution.

During the Bush administration it was already proven that both AT&T and Verizon had setup a secret system for the same purpose contracted through (guess who) two Israeli companies that would tap and sort all phone data (including hi speed internet) from Americans, per this video interview (with the same author/source of the article below, James Bamford) here:

Note one of the former NSA informants in the article says its like a "turnkey totalitarianism state" being setup, very similar to the word we used to describe the NDAA 2012 act in the previous post.  Exactly!  All this while the government says it's "defending freedom" by these measures to "fight terrorism" since 9/11. 

‘Total Information Awareness’ surveillance program returns, bigger than ever | The Raw Story

 According to Bamford, the NSA’s new data center in Utah will be the most all-encompassing spy machine ever conceived, capable of breaking almost any encryption, reading any email and recording any phone call anywhere in the world, even if it’s not made over the Internet. A network of ultra-sensitive satellites enhance the center’s intelligence-finding capabilities with the unique ability to sniff electronic communications from a massive distance.

More troubling still, Bamford’s three covert sources who worked for the NSA reportedly claim that the agency is dumping Americans’ communications into the mix, knowingly violating the U.S. Constitution in pursuit of a modern-day Manhattan Project.

When Congress struck down the Pentagon’s “Total Information Awareness” program, they did, however, authorize funding for ”processing, analysis, and collaboration tools for counter terrorism foreign intelligence,” which is precisely how the NSA describes this data center.
 ...In these latest revelations, one of Bamford’s covert sources claims that the NSA is on the verge of a massive coup, putting the U.S. inches away from “a turnkey totalitarian state.”
 The full article is worth reading.  Then watch this quick video where Judge Napolitano (who knows the law and the Constitution) takes the NSA and government to task about a their new online surveillance system called "Perfect Citizen".

NDAA 2012: Cornerstone of Totalitarianism--"First they came for the [Islamists]..."


"Necessity, the tyrant's plea." --  John Milton
          "Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom.  Necessity is the plea of tyrants, the creed of slaves".  -- William Pitt

Beware of politicians making use of alarmist and inflammatory rhetoric when they propose the "necessity" of new laws "to secure the Homeland".  Here's why, with a familiar quote:
First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
Then they came for the Catholics,
and I didn't speak out because I was Protestant.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me
                     -- Pastor Martin Niemoller, 1946

First they came for the Islamists.  Now they are coming for Americans.

Now during the Obama Administration there has been significant talk about "home grown terrorists"--i.e. Americans, instead of just "radical Islamists" coming in from the outside.  It was the Obama Administration's Janet Napolitano (or Napolean-tano) that sent out watch bulletins like these just a few years ago which proves the danger of government assessments about "home grown terrorism".

Ever since 9/11 (that false-flag event done to change America completely as well as its global foreign policy) this blog has pointed out the dangers of America's post-9/11 government and its new unconstitutional superstructure, especially of the new Department of Homeland Tyranny (aka Security; a very fascist, anti-Constitutional Dept. that blends domestic, federal policing, usurping the States, with the Dept. of Defense), the so-called USA PATRIOT ACT (which violates 4th and 5th amendments toward totalitarian surveillance and arrest powers, and destroys personal privacy and makes ID theft easier), and the REAL ID Act (which coerces states to turn drivers licenses into National ID cards with biometrics) to name just three major changes.  All this was done by tricks in legislation and often with "must-pass" defense authorization bills and funding.  Whenever you hear about a "must-pass" piece of legislation in Congress be very worried and read the fine print. 

Well now President Obama signed what he knew was controversial very secretly this last New Year's Eve (while Americans were very distracted) after Congress passed it as "necessary to protect us against terrorism".  Buried in the fine print of the National Defense Appropriations Act of 2012, passed by our totally untrustworthy bipartisan Congress before the end of last year, was the most dangerous and unconstitutional provision that permits the arbitrary and absolute detention of any American citizen based upon the very fallible, and sometimes politically or sinisterly motivated, designation by someone in authority within the Federal government that said individual is a terrorism threat or "material supporter of" such--without grand jury, trial, or even a judge-signed warrant for their arrest.  The purpose of the Constitution is to keep Americans safe from the Government while this dangerous legislation permits the Feds to take any American citizen, by-passing all Constitutional provisions in the Bill of Rights that keeps Americans free. 

The Founding Fathers warned us about governments that do this which is why the wrote a Constitution to prevent it!  This is just another column and support of the creeping totalitarianism being erected in America under the exaggerated threat of "terrorism" (while many more Americans, including West Virginians, are reported in the newspapers to be killing each other daily) since that infamous (and conveniently date-labelled) 9/11 "catalyzing event".  How long will Americans continue to let this happen, while waving flags, by Presidents and Congressmen who have sworn to "defend and uphold (the supreme law of) the Constitution of the United States"?  The truth is that Americans are no longer "free" but like the proverbial gradually-boiling-frog-in-the-pot of a Totalitarian stew.


 When a letter was sent to republican Representative Shelley Moore Capito against this bill in December, this is the letter we received back, fully supporting what President Obama signed on Dec. 31st:

But contrary to Rep. Capito's letter, and writing in bold that "American citizens will NOT be detained  under this bill", while she boasted it passed the committee "with my support", the following will prove that this is not the understanding of many from both left and right politically the way this law was written!  Intentions aside, many claim that the law actually gives broad arbitrary powers to any Presidential administration or federal authority to hold any American at will contrary to their Constitutional rights under the 5th amendment.  Let us call witnesses from the right and left and let's also call Fox's Judge Napolitano (3rd video) to give their view to the reader.


We will now prove that this article is neither hyperbole nor partisan whatsoever but is concerned with the real freedom of all Americans under the Constitution by evidence showing growing alarms from both left and right about this tyrannical and sinister legislation.

EXHIBIT A--From the Right:  Surprisingly, but more likely because Obama is in office instead of Bush, even Rush Limbaugh gets it:

EXHIBIT B--From the Left.  Article from Counterpunch:

Why the NDAA is Unconstitutional

Each year, Congress authorizes the budget of the Department of Defense through a National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The NDAA of 2012, however, is unlike any previous ones. This year’s legislation contains highly controversial provisions that empower the Armed Forces to engage in civilian law enforcement and to selectively suspend due process and habeas corpus, as well as other rights guaranteed by the 5th and 6th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, for terror suspects apprehended on U.S. soil. The final version of the bill passed the House on December 14, the Senate the following day (ironically, the 220th birthday of the Bill of Rights). It was signed into law by President Obama on New Year’s Eve. With his signature, for the first time since the Internal Security Act of 1950 and the dark days of the McCarthy era that followed, our government has codified the power of indefinite detention into law.
This pernicious law poses one of the greatest threats to civil liberties in our nation’s history.
All Americans, therefore, should be concerned, yet the U.S. Media has been strangely silent about it.

Bush introduced Preventive War (not truly pre-emptive war upon imminent threat)--a dangerous foreign policy (offensive instead of defensive wars) while now Obama has signed into law Preventive Detention--a dangerous domestic policy.

2012: The Year Economic Depression Begins in West? Why Gold is Suddenly Falling, Stock Market Next?

 UPDATE (Mar. 23rd):  Note this latest 30-Day Gold Chart (from same source) since we posted the article


The UK podcast interview referred to below by this summary article will shock most hearers who thought that things were just about to get better economically.  Before you buy gold (edit: for a short term investment) because of its historic performance you should stop and consider this first, since prudence is wise. 

A prudent man seeth the evil, and hideth himself; 
But the simple pass on, and suffer for it.
Solomon - Prov. 27:12

The consequences of not looking ahead can be disastrous, as Solomon's proverb proves, calling it stupid to ignore an approaching evil.  Even the ants are busy preparing in their harvest for winter, says the preacher of wisdom in Proverbs, and bids us to learn from their example.  An Economic Winter is coming that may be a very long and severe one, even decades in the West.  This is an economic alert based upon some economists expertise that should be heard, especially to those who think they are safe for buying and investing in gold for the short term, which has been promoted much for good reason as governments print money, as a hedge to inflation.  You won't hear this from the "feel good" editors of Network News.  Government Debts and threat of Iran conflict (thanks to Israel and AIPAC's aggressive influence on Congress contrary to American interests) continues to push up oil prices, which will cause massive inflation in all consumer goods (including gas to over $5 per gallon by summer), are among the things that paint a very bad picture for this year as Western economies begin to tumble, right when the U.S. in particular thought things were getting better.  Also looked at is the real reason that Gold fell almost $100 per oz last week from 1790 to 1703, which is what provoked this interview.  As of this morning, and after a slight recovery Friday, Gold is now down to 1680.  Read on.  

Experts say, "It's no longer corporations that are economically crashing, it's governments."  Government debts are being summoned for reckoning.  Greece was only an example of more to come.  Portugal, Spain, and others are on deck.  The UK could be next after them.  The U.S. is actually, despite bailouts and tricks, "in a recession" and has massive debt that it must deal with (as Senator Rubio has foretold "must be" dealt with this year).

Outlook for West:  "Era of De-leveraging" government debt, "depression for 20 to 30 years" to clear massive government debts, Gold to fall to maybe as low as 1200 to 1400 this year, Stockmarket to "fall 30 to 40 %" this year (markets must aborb Greek default, with more coming, and European bailout).  Temporary stronger dollar this year is bad for gold and metals, due to Euro decline because of European debt bailouts (Greece).

These are just a few things mentioned on this reputable UK Gold Investment group interview.  THIS IS A MUST-HEAR PODCAST BELOW.  (You have to respect a Gold investment group that permits such a bearish outlook on gold investing to be aired with their sponsorship!)

The wealth manager in this interview says he is heavy on cash instead of gold this year (until later years) and explains the gloomy state of US and Western European governments and their economies.
