Obama Declares State of Emergency through yet another Executive Order

From the Trenches

Posted on May 16, 2012 by Henry Shivley


 May 16, 2012, the United States Premier Barack Obama AKA Barry Soetoro AKA Barry the Rat signed Executive Order Blocking Property of Persons Threatening the Peace, Security, or Stability of Yemen, declaring a State of Emergency in the United States and activating his new dictatorial powers, including the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) (NEA), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code.

Obama says he is going to exercise these powers on the sovereign country of Yemen and “others”

This is a seizure of all Yemenis owned properties in the United States and the properties of any American with business ties to any interest in Yemen.  This is an act of war.

This is, once again, Obama circumventing our Congress and declaring himself as dictator as he is absolutely dictating foreign policy using unconstitutional lawswhich were put in place through his prior dictates.

Will our Congress even so much as put up an objection?  Or is the foreign insurgency so embedded there within as to represent a majority being complicit? 

Make no mistake, Obama is acting absolutely as a dictator and has now begun writing executive orders off of his executive orders.

Everyone had better be advised.  There now exists within the United States a declared State of Emergency. 

Under this State of Emergency, Obama can now issue orders that create law as the words are coming out of his mouth without so much as a “by your leave” from our Congress.

Why this issue has not been in the mainstream news is cause for concern. 

If Obama can just, out of the blue, change US foreign policy, he can change any federal law and or create new federal law on a whim.

One might be prudent to ask who that “other” is he refers to in the executive order.

Executive Order — Blocking Property of Persons Threatening the Peace, Security, or Stability of Yemen

BLOCKING PROPERTY OF PERSONS THREATENING
THE PEACE, SECURITY, OR STABILITY OF YEMEN

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) (NEA), and section 301 of title 3, United States Code,

I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, find that the actions and policies of certain members of the Government of Yemen and others threaten Yemen’s peace, security, and stability, including by obstructing the implementation of the agreement of November 23, 2011, between the Government of Yemen and those in opposition to it, which provides for a peaceful transition of power that meets the legitimate demands and aspirations of the Yemeni people for change, and by obstructing the political process in Yemen. I further find that these actions constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat.

I hereby order:

Section 1. All property and interests in property that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of any United States person, including any foreign branch, of the following persons are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in: any person determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, to:

(a) have engaged in acts that directly or indirectly threaten the peace, security, or stability of Yemen, such as acts that obstruct the implementation of the agreement of November 23, 2011, between the Government of Yemen and those in opposition to it, which provides for a peaceful transition of power in Yemen, or that obstruct the political process in Yemen;

(b) be a political or military leader of an entity that has engaged in the acts described in subsection (a) of this section;

(c) have materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services to or in support of, the acts described in subsection (a) of this section or any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; or

(d) be owned or controlled by, or to have acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order.

Sec. 2. I hereby determine that the making of donations of the type of articles specified in section 203(b)(2) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1702(b)(2)) by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to section 1 of this order would seriously impair my ability to deal with the national emergency declared in this order, and I hereby prohibit such donations as provided by section 1 of this order.

Sec. 3. The prohibitions in section 1 of this order include but are not limited to:

(a) the making of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services by, to, or for the benefit of any person whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order; and

(b) the receipt of any contribution or provision of funds, goods, or services from any such person.

Sec. 4. The prohibitions in section 1 of this order apply except to the extent provided by statutes, or in regulations, orders, directives, or licenses that may be issued pursuant to this order, and notwithstanding any contract entered into or any license or permit granted prior to the effective date of this order.

Sec. 5. Nothing in section 1 of this order shall prohibit transactions for the conduct of the official business of the United States Government by employees, grantees, or contractors thereof.

Sec. 6. (a) Any transaction that evades or avoids, has the purpose of evading or avoiding, causes a violation of, or attempts to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.

(b) Any conspiracy formed to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in this order is prohibited.

Sec. 7. For the purposes of this order:

(a) the term “person” means an individual or entity;

(b) the term “entity” means a partnership, association, trust, joint venture,corporation, group, subgroup, or other organization; and

(c) the term “United States person” means any United States citizen, permanent resident alien, entity organized under the laws of the United States or any jurisdiction within the United States (including foreign branches), or any person in the United States.

Sec. 8. For those persons whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to this order who might have a constitutional presence in the United States, I find that

because of the ability to transfer funds or other assets instantaneously, prior notice to such persons of measures to be taken pursuant to this order would render those measures ineffectual. I therefore determine that for these measures to be effective in addressing the national emergency declared in this order, there need be no prior notice of a listing or determination made pursuant to section 1 of this order.

Sec. 9. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, is hereby authorized to take such actions, including the promulgation of rules andregulations, and to employ all powers granted to the President by IEEPA as may be necessary to carry out the purposes of this order. The Secretary of the Treasury may redelegate any of these functions to other officers and agencies of the United States Government consistent with applicable law. All agencies of the United States Government are hereby directed to take all appropriate measures within their authority to carry out the provisions of this order.

Sec. 10. The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, is hereby authorized to submit the recurring and final reports to the Congress on the national emergency declared in this order, consistent with section 401(c) of the NEA (50 U.S.C. 1641(c)) and section 204(c) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1703(c)).

Sec. 11. This order is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

BARACK OBAMA

Banks Notified By DHS Of Unannounced Warrantless Looting Of Personal Accounts Or Safe Deposit Boxes

=============================

{ XANIEL’S NOTE : This was posted Fri Mar 30 2012, but is very relevant right now if you just got done reading the above story ! }~~ Xaniel777

=============================

The Last Official Act of Any Government is to Loot the Nation..
According to in-house memos now circulating, the DHS has issued orders to banks across America which announce to them that “under the Patriot Act” the DHS has the absolute right to seize, without any warrant whatsoever, any and all customer bank accounts, to make “periodic and unannounced” visits to any bank to open and inspect the contents of “selected safe deposit boxes.”

Further, the DHS “shall, at the discretion of the agent supervising the search, remove, photograph or seize as evidence” any of the following items “bar gold, gold coins, firearms of any kind unless manufactured prior to 1878, documents such as passports or foreign bank account records, pornography or any material that, in the opinion of the agent, shall be deemed of to be of a contraband nature.”

DHS memos also state that banks are informed that any bank employee, on any level, that releases “improper” “classified DHS Security information” to any member of the public, to include the customers whose boxes have been clandestinely opened and inspected and “any other party, to include members of the media” and further “that the posting of any such information on the internet will be grounds for the immediate termination of the said employee or employees and their prosecution under the Patriot Act.” 

If people have their emergency money in a safe deposit box or an account in a bank that closes, they will not be allowed into the bank to get it out. They can knock on the door and beg to get in but the sheriff’s department or whoever is handling the closure will simply say “no” because they are just following orders. 

Deposit box and account holders are not warned of the hazards of banking when they sign up. It is not until they need to get their cash or valuables out in a hurry that they find themselves in trouble. 

Rules governing access to safe deposit boxes and money held in accounts are written into the charter of each bank.

The charter is the statement of policy under which the bank is allowed by the government to do business. 

These rules are subject to change at any time by faceless bureaucrats who are answerable to no one.

They can be changed without notice, without the agreement of the people, and against their will. 

People can complain but no one will care because this is small potatoes compared to the complaints that will be voiced when the executive order that governs national emergencies is enforced.

Globalist Plan to Disarm America:

 

PL87-297 Arms Control and Disarmament Act /
State Department Publication No.7277

 


by 
Bernadine Smith

 

If someday your children or grandchildren ask you how Liberty died in America and what happened that caused the demise of the Nation, read this and you will be able to answer them.

If they ask you why the Citizens have been disarmed, you’ll know.

If you want to know why, go to your local library, no matter where you live in the United States.

Tell the librarian to show you where the ‘United States Code books’ are shelved. There are 25 books in the set.

They are reddish-brown in color. They are printed by the Government Printing Office in Washington, DC.

These hard-covered books are printed every 8-10 years.

They are updated with annual soft-back supplements each year until a new hard cover issue comes out. At the present time, the 1988 hardbacks are on library shelves.

OPEN VOLUME 9. The page numbers are in the center near the middle binding. The section numbers are along the edges.

TURN TO PAGE 651. Here you will find Public Law 87-297 which calls for the United States to eliminate its armed forces.

This law was signed for the United States in 1961. John F. Kennedy signed it and every president since has worked to enact its provisions.

The government knows you will not  approve which is why they want to take away your firearms. (This is Title 22 USC section 2551)

TURN TO PAGE 652. Here you will find the definition of what the government means by “disarmament.” The disarmament calls for the elimination of  our armed forces. It also calls for the elimination of weapons of all kinds.

(This is Title 22 USC 2552 (a).

TURN TO PAGE 654. Here you will find it stated as item (a) “control, reduction and elimination of armed forces…” and as Item (d)” …Elimination of armed forces….” What you need to know is that your armed forces are being eliminated and relinquished from national control which, in turn, wipes out our sovereignty as a nation. In two stages, we will have no more army, no more navy, no more air force. In the third stage, we shall have a “zero” military. Before Stage I closes, all citizen owned guns are to be banned.

(This is Title 22 USC Section 2571 (a).

Public Law 87-297 is further explained in the State Department Document called Publication 7277.

Your librarian can also furnish you a copy.

Also ask the librarian to get you a copy of “The Blue Print for the Peace Race.” It is a 35-page booklet printed by the United States Arms Control and Disarmament Agency as Publication No. 4 – General Series 3 – Released May of 1962. Publication No. 4 is the unabridged version of State Department Document 7277.

Both of these booklets explain how our military is to be reduced to 2.1 million men. China and the Soviets are to be reduced to that level also.

At this point, we are at Stage I at which time we are to transfer (on a permanent basis) one-half of our armed forces to be merged with the Russian and Chinese armies.

In Stage II, the remaining one-half of our armed forces is then turned over to this same Security Council of the United Nations. The person in charge of the merged armies must, by agreement, always be a Russian.

The world’s smaller nations turn 100% of their armies over to the same under-secretary of the Security, Council in Stage II. President George Bush and Admiral Wm. J. Crowe [have referred] to this process as being “in transition.”

TURN TO PAGE 655. On this page in Volume 9 of the United States Code, read “Policy Formation.”

The directives there (written in 1963 to pacify objectors) are supposedly to restrain anyone from disarmament, reducing or limiting our armaments, or taking guns away from the people unless it is pursuant to the treaty-making power of the president, or if it is authorized by further legislation by the Congress. (This is title 22, Section 2573.)

Every couple of years the House of Representatives votes to appropriate funds for this on-going program.

Since P.L. 87-297 was first passed into law in 961, there have been 18 updates to it – all bad – with no deletions of these issues I lay before you now. The Congress knows that the plan includes the policing of the United States by foreign troops. (The world army they are forming in Europe.)

The Congress is allowing our military bases to be closed down, except for those that will be used by the world army.

You will find that plan in Publication 7277 and in “The Blueprint for the Peace Race.”

FBI Launches Investigation Of JPMorgan Chase For Illegal Speculation

FBI Launches Investigation Of JPMorgan Chase For Illegal Speculation

The FBI has confirmed they have launched a criminal investigation into JP Morgan Chase over their recently announced $2 billion loss in ‘synthetic’ securities.

The FBI has confirmed recently reported rumors that they are launching a criminal investigation into JP Morgan Chase over a $2 billion loss on trades in ‘synthetic’ securities which as Washington’s Blog reports below is nothing more than double speak for illegal speculation.

The announcement makes the FBI is the fourth government agencies investigating the scandal. The DOJ, the CFTC and the SEC who each have launched their own investigation.

The news also comes as JP Morgan just announces the London Whale, who is being used as the scapegoat for the scandal, is said to be leaving the firm.

The entire story is still fishy as their still is no explanation of what those ‘synthetic’ securities actually were but there are plenty of stories doing damage control for JP Morgan claiming that The Whale was just the victim of hedge funds who sought to profit by placing bets against the whale’s trades.

The scandal continues to steal headlines as the European debt crisis spins out of control with a run on Greek banks being the latest development.

Washington’s Blog reports:

JP Morgan Used “Hedginess” to Engage in Illegal Speculation

Jamie Dimon Thumbs Nose at Volcker Rule by Pretending that Big Speculative Bets are Hedges

Smart people like Sajiat DasKarl DenningerTyler DurdenYves Smith andJanet Tavikoli have all demolished JP Morgan’s argument that it’s recent multi-billion loss was caused by a hedge gone wrong.

But former senior S&L prosecutor – and current professor of economics and law – Bill Black provides the best take-down of the faux hedges:

The claim from out of JPMorgan is nobody was looking very carefully at the supposed hedge, and the hedge didn’t perform to offset losses, instead it increased the losses and increased the losses dramatically.

And supposedly, no one was looking, and no one adjusted for this. And they woke up, and they had a $2 billion loss. So that’s the story from JPMorgan [which] doesn’t make sense.

***

If you have distressed European debt [the underlying asset holding that Dimon against which JPM’s so-called “hedge” was made], you’re supposed to have already reserved against the losses in it.

So, why hedge the position at all? Just sell it. Get rid of these incredibly risky assets before they can suffer any additional losses.

If you’ve already got loss reserves, you don’t even have to recognize a loss, because you’ve already reserved for it. So, you shouldn’t have had to hedge, period.

Second, if you were going to hedge, he should have hedged. And the way you would hedge something like this is to buy a credit default swap protection against the bad assets. That would hedge.

In other words, if you lost on the value of the European debt, the credit default swap would go up in value, and you would be protected against loss.

Instead, they have allegedly bet in the opposite direction by buying this derivative of a derivative. If the European debt lost value, the derivative of the derivative was also likely to lose value.

Well, that’s not a hedge. That’s a double speculation in the same direction. You’re doubling down on the bet.

And the reason you’re calling it a hedge is because it’s illegal, under the Volcker Rule, to speculate in this fashion. So the story coming out of JPMorgan doesn’t make any sense as a financial matter.

It seems reasonably clear that this is faux hedges. This is, you know, to hedging like truthiness is to truth. So this is hedginess: not really a hedge, but you call it a hedge to evade the law.

***

Even when the Volcker Rule was adopted, over their opposition and over the opposition of the Federal Reserve and of Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, who remains true to his former boss, Jamie Dimon, after that, they gutted the rule—at least the draft rule to implement the Volcker Rule.

And unless it is changed, the Volcker Rule will be essentially unenforceable, because you’re allowed, under the current draft, to simply call something a hedge, even though it operates in the exact opposite of a hedge. And voilà, this hedginess is OK, and the losses just mount up and produce the next disaster.

RT Reports:

FBI begins investigation of JPMorgan Chase

Executives at JPMorgan Chase might not be too up in arms over their recent $2 billion trading boner, but that doesn’t mean the FBI is ready to let the Wall Street giant walk away without reprimand.

RT  Executives at JPMorgan Chase might not be too up in arms over their recent $2 billion trading boner, but that doesn’t mean the FBI is ready to let the Wall Street giant walk away without reprimand.

In the wake of an in-house trading goof that cost JPMorgan Chase billions and brought one of their top execs to resign as chief investment officer, the US Federal Bureau of Investigation says that they are now examining the events surrounding the snafu and are in the early stages of a probe into the bank.

The investigation, which was only confirmed on Wednesday by the New York Times, is expected to consider various accounting practices and public disclosures regarding the trades that lent to the recent multi-billion-dollar blunder.

In their report, the Times claims that no execs at JPMorgan are specifically linked to any allegations of wrongdoing, but that such investigations are commonplace in cases where such large amounts were at stake.

That doesn’t mean, however, that anyone is exactly in the clear.

“The FBI looks for evidence of crimes and goes after people who it alleges are criminals. They want to send people to jail. The SEC pursues all sorts of wrongdoing, imposes fines and is half as scary as the FBI,” Erik Gordon, a professor in the law and business schools at the University of Michigan, tells Reuters.

The newswire confirms that both the US Federal Reserve and Securities and Exchange Commission have already opened up inquires of their own into the matter, in addition to the FBI’s preliminary probe being conducted on behalf of the Justice Department.

Earlier this week, JPMorgan Chase Chairman and CEO Jamie Dimon addressed the issue with shareholders and said, “This should never have happened.”

“I can’t justify it. Unfortunately, these mistakes were self-inflicted,” added Dimon.

After the initial fallout, disclosed on Friday, shares in JPMorgan plummeted tremendously, costing the company as much as $17 billion in market capitalization.

For Dimon, the timing couldn’t have come at a worse time — the bank’s top execs descended on Tampa, Florida on Tuesday for their annual shareholders summit where it was impossible to ignore the latest mishap.

“There are many lessons here and many changes in policy and procedures that are already being implemented, and in addition, all corrective actions will be taken as necessary,” said to the audience in Tampa this week.

Although Dimon walked out of Tuesday’s meeting clinging to his role as CEO, it might not last for much longer.

“We’re weary of mistakes,” shareholder activist Seamus Finn told Dimon, reports NPR. “As shareholders, we will continue to hold you to a very high standard. But we can’t help wondering if you’re listening and hearing the many voices that have been speaking out on these issues.”

“I would suggest that JPMorgan take their business to Las Vegas because it’s just a gamble,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid added to reporters this week.

Intelligence Chiefs Slam Israeli Leaders for Lying about Iran

From FARS News Agency ( english )

May 15, 2012

TEHRAN (FNA)- The very public disagreements between the Israeli leadership and its intelligence services over the Iranian nuclear program indicate disarray at the top of the regime, writes Ismail Salami.

Releasing a paper which contained a biblical quotation from Prophet Zachariah, former chief of the Israeli Shin Bet intelligence service Yuval Diskin said, “I will tell you things that might be harsh. I cannot trust Netanyahu and Barak at the wheel in confronting Iran. They are infected with messianic feelings over Iran,” thereby dealing a heavy blow to the Israeli regime.

A rift the size of a potential coup is taking shape between the Israeli government and the country’s military and intelligence apparatus over Iran, a fact which threatens the ruling Israeli political apparatus on the one hand and exonerates Iran of groundless allegations on the other, Salami says in his article.

Iran has become an obsession with past and present Israeli intelligence staff, to the extent that the very mention of its name is enough to cause them anger.

However, the present fire started when Israel’s chief of intelligence Benny Gantz said he did not believe that Iran was pursuing nuclear weapons, after years of efforts made by Tel Aviv and its allies to convince the world otherwise.

In an interview with the Israeli daily Haaretz, Gantz described Iran’s leadership as “very rational,” adding that this being so it was unlikely to be pursuing a nuclear weapons program.

Also speaking at the Majdi Forum in Kfar Saba, a Tel Aviv suburb, at the end of April when the announcement was made, was Diskin, who said that Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu were deluded in believing that they had a “messianic” mission and that they were lying about the effectiveness of a possible Israeli strike against Iran.

“There’s a false image being presented to public, and that’s what bothers me. They [Netanyahu and Barak] are giving the impression that if Israel doesn’t act, Iran will have nuclear weapons. This part of the sentence apparently has an element of truth. But in the second part of the sentence, they turn to the — sorry for the expression — the ‘stupid public’ or the layman public… and tell them if Israel acts, there won’t be [an Iranian] nuclear program. And that’s the incorrect part of the sentence,” Diskin said.

Iran is a taboo word in Israel, and anyone who speaks in defense of the Islamic Republic is considered an enemy of the country.

For this reason, Diskin’s comments were interpreted as stemming from “personal desperation” by Israeli commentators, some describing him as being the latest in a line of “moronic intelligence chiefs.”

Israeli transport minister Yisrael Katz called the remarks “crude and inappropriate,” adding that it was “clear that the timing and style of his comments stemmed from personal rather than substantive motives.”

However, Israeli opposition leader Shaul Mofaz said that he at least took Diskin’s criticisms of Netanyahu and Barak seriously, rejecting claims that they had been made as a result of personal or political considerations.

Some Israeli military and intelligence officials also joined in support of Diskin in his criticism of Netanyahu. Former Mossad chief Meir Dagan expressed his support for Diskin by saying that he was a serious man who spoke his own “internal truth”.

Former Israel Defense Force (IDF) chief of staff lieutenant general Gabi Ashkenazi defended Diskin, saying, “I know Diskin, and he spoke what was in his heart out of genuine concern.”

In the meantime, Former Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert joined a chorus of voices warning against rushing into war with Iran by saying that “there is enough time to try different avenues of pressure to change the balance of power with Iran without the need for a direct military confrontation.”

Two different groups have emerged in Israel in the Diskin affair.

The first includes those who have served in the country’s intelligence agencies and are cognizant of the true nature of Iran’s nuclear program and therefore either silently or loudly criticize their government for its bomb-Iran rhetoric.

The second group includes those who follow the country’s present leaders, including Netanyahu, who lie about the Iranian nuclear program and play an important role in misleading the international community on Iran.

Meanwhile, a feeling of fear is eroding the Israeli regime from within and without.

On the one hand, it has come under scrutiny from its own intelligence services, which have been exposing its lies about Iran.

On the other hand, it is fearful that talks slated for 23 May in Baghdad between Iran and the P5+1 group of the world powers could ultimately end with a deal that would allow Tehran to continue its uranium-enrichment program.

At all events, the Israeli regime is on a political razor’s edge, and it is already caught between a rock and a hard place.

In an attempt to try to sabotage the P5+1 talks, the Israeli government has sent its national security adviser, Yaakov Amidror, to Europe to hold talks with European Union officials.

Amidror arrived in Brussels on 30 April and held talks with Helga Schmid, EU deputy secretary-general for political affairs, who is responsible for preparatory talks with Iran ahead of the Baghdad meeting.

Amidror was also expected to travel to Berlin later, where he was to meet top German officials, among them Hans-Dieter Lucas, Germany’s representative to the Iran talks.

A top Israeli official has described Amidror’s Europe tour as “extremely sensitive,” saying his visits are aimed at obtaining more information about the content of the previous round of talks in the Turkish city of Istanbul and the P5+1’s strategy in the Baghdad meeting.

What is happening is not in the best interests of Israel.

By way of countering the anti-regime remarks made by top military and intelligence staff in Israel, Netanyahu and Barak have embarked on toning up their war rhetoric against Iran, steadfast in their attempts at sowing the seeds of extremism, fear and hatred in order to give a cloak of legitimacy to a possible Israeli strike against the Islamic Republic.

COMMENTS FROM : Mike Rivero of WRH.com

” Unfortunately, Yuval Diskin is painfully correct in his assessment of the current Israeli Prime Minister and Secretary of Defense.

When it comes to their scenario, or narrative, about a potential strike against Iran, everything just absolutely works perfectly; there are a couple of surgical strikes at suspected targets; no Iranian counterstrike; no regional involvement in such a war, and the desired regime change at the end of the day.

I would, however caution these men very strongly that hubristically magical thinking has led to many military disasters, and Iran could well be one of them, should Israel attack it.

What happens if this is not a blitzkrieg, carried out with deadly precision, but the war is a prolonged one?!?

The Iranian counter attacks against Israeli and US military assets could be intense, and Israeli casualties could well be enormous.

And US assistance may well not insure a military victory, because the US government does not have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome here.

And lastly, leaders of m nuclear-armed Russia, China, and Pakistan have stated very publicly that should Iran be attacked by the US and/or Israel, they will come to its aid militarily.

So what we have here is the potential for a global thermonuclear war over an alleged Iranian weapons program which cannot, to date, be proven to exist.

So to those in the bowels of power in Tel Aviv and DC, please be very careful what you wish for here in terms of an outcome.

The potential for horrific, unintended and irreversible consequences from such a military strike must encourage sane people right back to where they should be on this issue; and that is to the negotiating table with Iran, resolving any issues with Iran’s nuclear programs with intelligent and honest diplomacy.” ~~ Mike R.

Panetta, Barak to Announce More US Military Aid to Israel

(‘Special Package’ of $680 Million to Be Announced in DC)

============================================

{ XANIEL’S NOTE : Once again our treasonous ( U.S.) Government Officials ignore the fact that the U.S. citizens are broke, unemployed, homeless and hungry.

That our countries infrastructure is collapsing from neglectfulness by our leaders.

BUT BY ALL MEANS,  let’s give even more taxpayer money, ( on top of the Billions and Billions in taxpayer monies we’ve already given these ungrateful racist people ), who will use it to murder and /or remove even more innocent people from their homes and lands.

THAT IS,  when their not busy using our own taxpayer money to LOBBY/ BRIBE / PAYOFF  our own political ( treasonous ) officials.

This is the norm in the world and has been every since Israel stole all of that Palestinian land and declared itself a State.

For Israel keeps taking and taking and our Government ( as well as the Palestinians ) keeps giving and giving, at our expense and without our approval.

And while were at it, WHY does the U.N. ( United Nations ) do nothing?

Because the U.N. much like ‘ The League of Nations ‘ is just as corrupt and a complete and utter failure. Bought and paid for by the Elites of the world.

In all honesty, the rest of the world should start a new United Nations and call it ‘ The Global Nations Council ‘! Where every Nation in the world is recognized ( even those that Israel and the U.S. refuse to recognize ) and every Nation has a vote on every world issue.

No longer will the upper  handful of economic and military powers be the ones to decide the fate of the rest.

From the highest to the lowest, every Nation would be equal and have equal votes and say over how our world affairs are handled.

Majority rules by equal and fair paper voting and all would watch and/or take part in the counting of those votes!

This should remove voter fraud completely.

 The General Assembly would be all that the world would ever need anymore.

With this structure, the idea of a One World Order would have a whole new meaning , as it will be run by the ‘ ALL ‘ and not just by the

‘ Special Few ‘

But, right now I have another question and that is :

” What do we get for our taxpayer money and sacrifice of our children in wars started by these EVIL ISRAELI ZIONIST BUGS ???”

 The answer is simple :  ” NOTHING !!! “

As Israel contributes ‘ NOTHING OF VALUE ‘ to the world except lies, propaganda, greed, theft, murder, maham, chaos and death.

And all the while taking the position of  ‘ HOLOCAUST VICTIMS ‘ to get away with it all.

Saying Israeli Zionist is another way of saying Third Reich, which was the Nazi regime, 1933–45.

So once again allow me to say,” LET ISRAEL STAND ALONE, SO THAT THE U.S. CAN STAND BACK UP !”} ~~Xaniel777

Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak is headed to Washington DC on Monday, with plans for him and his US counterpart Leon Panetta to officially announce $680 million in additional US military aid to Israel.

The Pentagon initially cooked up this most recent plan to increase aid to Israel, pushing for the House Armed Services Committee to authorize the funding for the “Iron Dome” missile defense program in late March. The committee quickly did so.

Officials pushed for the new funding to increase the number of such defensive missiles along the border with the Gaza Strip, after Israel’s March bombardment of the strip and subsequent return-fire ended with a “malfunction” and rockets causing minor damage.

The Pentagon insists that the Iron Dome “saved many lives,” despite it failing to stop a good portion of the rockets and those rockets not being particularly deadly at any rate (mostly doing minor damage to buildings or landing harmlessly in fields).

The Iron Dome program was initially defunded by the Israeli military in 2010 for being a waste of money, and the US has since picked up 100% of the costs.

    COMMENT FROM : Mike Rivero of WRH.com

    Memo to SecDef Panetta: a nuclear-armed, state-of-the-art militarily sufficient Israel does not need one more cent of US taxpayer dollars.

    In case, sir, you have managed to not notice it, the US is in the worst depression since the 30s, and perhaps is in even a worse shape, were the true numbers actually dared be spoken. 

    The money would be far better spent on the American people, thank you very much.

    Our alleged “ally”, Israel, is home to leadership with a consistent record of relieving themselves on American politicians begging for some reasonable rapprochement with the Palestinians toward a just and lasting peace, and them informing them it’s raining.

    A nuclear-armed Israel, which steadfastly refuses to become a signatory to the NNPT, and refuses to allow its nuclear sites to be inspected, is one of the most dangerous countries in the Middle East, and in fact, the world.

    That its leadership is currently talking openly about a military strike against Iran, an NNPT member whose nuclear sites are consistently inspected by the IAEA, should be reason enough to hold it in contempt and shun it, and yet – the US government simply forks over more and more money to sustain it.

     And I will suggest, sir that a US/Israeli invasion of Iran to effect regime change will be about as effective as was the US invasion and occupation of Iraq; you do remember just how well that went for the United States government, do you not?!?

    Secretary Panetta, as you are well aware, leaders of nuclear armed China, Russia, and Pakistan have gone on record as stating that should Iran be attacked, they will come to its aid militarily.

    So what we have here, Secretary Panetta, with Israel beating the drums for such a war with ear-splitting velocity, is the potential for a global thermonuclear war over an alleged Iranian nuclear weapons program which cannot, to date, be proven to exist.

    And lastly, sir, I would very strongly caution you and Israeli Defense Secretary Barak to be very, very careful what you wish for, as an outcome of such a war.

    The potential for horrendous, and irreversible unintended consequences, is far too great not to consider the sane alternative, which is consistent, just, and responsible negotiations with the Iranian government.~~Mike Rivero of WRH.com

Iceland’s Amazing Peaceful Revolution – Still Not in the News (backstory)

From CrazyEmailsAndBackStories

by voice13 May 12, 2012

Iceland’s peaceful revolution is a stunning example of how little our media tells us about the rest of the world.

 Read details about Iceland’s wonderful social evolution at DailyKoshere.

Another great article is  on Bloomberg.com.

 The  following summation has been posted by countless people on Facebook; I’ve reposted it in its entirety:

ICELAND (GP) – No news from Iceland? Why?

Last we heard, people were rising up and overthrowing the bankers. Then, no news on the television or newspapers for two years.

What happened? Why won’t the papers and TV tell us how the bankers successfully crushed or minimized another rebellion?

Because… THEY DIDN’T! This time, the people won.

The people of Iceland have overwhelmingly risen up and forced their government puppets of the banks to resign.

Primary banks have been nationalized.

The debt scam imposed by Great Britain and Holland money printers was declared null and void.

A public assembly has been created to rewrite Iceland’s constitution.

The best part is, all of this happened without violence or bloodshed.

A whole country’s revolution succeeded against powers that created the current global crisis without a shot being fired.

 A very good reason exists for the apparent failure of television and newspapers to provide any publicity on this unprecedented event: what would happen if the rest of the EU and the United States took this as an example?

The following is a summary of the facts:

2008 – The main bank of Iceland is nationalized.

The Krona, the currency of Iceland devaluates and the stock market halts. The country is in bankruptcy

2008 – Citizens rise up at Parliament and succeed in forcing the resignation of both the prime minister and the effective government. New elections are held.

Yet, the country remains in a bad economic situation.

A Parliament act is passed to pay back 3,500 million Euros to Great Britain and Holland by the people of Iceland monthly during the next 15 years, with 5.5% interest.

2010 – The people of Iceland again take to the streets to demand a referendum.

In January of 2010, the President of Iceland denies approval, instead announcing a popular vote on the matter by the people.

In March, a referendum and denial of payment is approved by popular vote of 93%.

Meanwhile, government officials initiate an investigation to bring to justice those responsible for the crisis.

Many high level executives and bankers are arrested. Interpol dictates an order to force all implicated parties to leave Iceland.

An assembly is elected to write a new constitution (based on the Denmark’s) to avoid entrapments of debt based currency foreign loans. 25 citizens are chosen — with no political affiliation — out of the 522 candidates.

The only qualifications for candidacy are adulthood and the support of 30 people.

The constitutional assembly started in February of 2011. It continues to present ‘carta magna’ from recommendations provided by various assemblies throughout the country.

Ultimately, it must be approved by both the current Parliament and the one created through the next legislative election.

In summary of the Icelandic revolution, we saw:

-resignation of the entire corrupt government of the country
-nationalization of the bank
-referendum enabling the people to determine their own economic system
-incarceration of responsible parties, and
-a rewriting of the Iceland Constitution by its people

This is significant stuff.

Have we been informed about this through the main stream media?
Has any political program on radio or TV commented on this?

Not that I’ve seen. 

The Icelandic people have demonstrated a way to beat the international money printers and controllers of information.

The last thing entrenched usurers would want is for you to think you could also free yourself from their chains.
