The American Way

 

 

From The Intel Hub

August 16, 2012

Past and present leaders reveal the soul of their nations.

Arguably America never had one.

Current domestic and foreign policies provide convincing evidence.

Police state harshness targets defenders of right over wrong everywhere.

National resources go for militarism, belligerence, and making super-rich elites richer.

Corporations are licensed to steal, exploit, and plunder.

Wars ravage one country after another.

Humanity is ruthlessly destroyed.

Battlefields shift from one theater to another.

Gangsterism writ large reflects official policy. Syria is ground zero.

Months of Western generated violence left thousands dead, many more injured, and countless numbers displaced.

Nothing deters America’s war machine madness.

Bloodlust defines it.

Dominance matters most. Body counts mount.

Rule of law principles and democratic values are considered quaint and out of date.

Stomping on people is policy.

Concern for human and civil rights is off the table.

Winning hearts and minds was never America’s game.

Crushing the will to resist is more important.

Repression enforces the message harshly.

Death squad diplomacy eliminates non-believers.

Where it ends, who knows!

Despite ongoing direct and proxy wars, hawkish US lawmakers want more.

John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Joe Lieberman are three of America’s worst. Peace they believe is abhorrent.

Death squad massacres in Syria aren’t enough.

As a 2008 presidential candidate, McCain’s advocated bombing Iran.

“Bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iran,” he sang on his “Straight Talk” tour to the tune of a popular Beach Boys song.

Lunatics like this run America.

Now McCain wants more.

So do Graham and Lieberman.

They’re not alone.

On August 5, the Washington Post gave them op-ed space.

Together they headlined “The risks of inaction in Syria,” saying:

Provide “robust assistance” to opposition fighters.

Establish and reinforce safe zones.

Use “airpower and other unique US assets.”

Damn the risks. (I)naction carries” greater ones. “(S)trategic” aims matter most.

Failure to intervene more aggressively “jeopardiz(es) both our national security interests and our moral standing in the world.”

Fact check

Official US policy calls for replacing all independent governments with pro-Western ones.

War is America’s national pastime. Dominance alone matters.

Sovereign rights can’t be allowed to interfere.

Washington planned war on Syria years ago.

It’s orchestrating events on the ground.

It’s been involved from day one.

It’s recruiting, arming, funding, training, and directing mercenary killers.

It’s not good enough so let’s bomb, say McCain, Graham and Lieberman.

With these type lawmakers influencing policy, don’t bet money on humanity surviving.

Don’t expect America to renounce war.

Don’t imagine embracing democratic values is planned.

Hunker down for worse to come.

Get involved and try to stop it.

Syria is about to go up in flames.

Iran is next, then other nations.

No good ending comes from this.

Wars beget more of them.

Permanent ones assure self-destruction.

Perhaps America will take humanity with it.

It’s not far-fetched. Partnered with Britain, other key NATO allies, Israel, and regional despots, chances of armageddon are too high to risk.

Chances for homeland tyranny are virtually certain. Militarism writ large heads it there.

It’s closer than most people imagine.

It’s not pretty now. Expect much worse ahead.

It could come any time.

Battleground Syria could shift venues to America if popular resistance erupts.

Daily violence and atrocities there could become commonplace domestically.

Some neighborhoods already experience low intensity versions of what could easily ratchet higher.

Hammering one country after another draws it closer.

Former State Department official Anne-Marie Slaughter mimicks McCain, Graham and Lieberman.

Halting Syrian violence depends on increasing it, they believe.

People like this run America. They’re interviewed on US television.

They’re given feature op-ed space.

Earlier, Slaughter called for “no-kill zones.”

Pentagon officials call them “buffer zones.”

They’re ground-based no-fly zones.

If established, they assure full-scale war.

Slaughter supports no holds barred escalation.

On July 31, her Financial Times article headlined “We will pay a high price if we do not arm Syria’s rebels,” saying:

She wants that and more.

“It is time for bold action,” she said. She suggests Libya 2.0. Go for broke, she urges.

Other hawks echo her sentiment.

“Syrians will remember those who remember them,” she said.

The longer fighting rages, the greater Assad’s support grows, the more America is hated.

Syrians aren’t stupid. They know what Washington did to Iraq and Libya.

They know what’s gone on in Afghanistan since 2001.

They understand that wherever America arrives, death, destruction, and unspeakable human misery follow.

If Washington wins, they lose.

They’re willing to die to prevent it.

America plans full-scale war.

Imagine how many more will die. Imagine the vast destruction.

Imagine any nation ravaging others. It’s the American way.

Permanent wars are waged for wealth, power and dominance.

At the same time, homeland needs go begging.

Out-of-control militarism heads America for tyranny and ruin.

Along the way, millions suffer and die.

Obama follows in the tradition of previous warrior presidents.

Over time, stakes and risks grow exponentially.

State-of the art weapons threaten everyone.

Obama’s National Security Strategy “reserve(s) the right to act unilaterally if necessary to defend out nation and our interests.”

In other words, preemptive wars with weapons of mass destruction is policy.

Obama claims it’s “to keep the American people safe (and advance the nation’s) values and ideals.”

It threatens other countries to bend to Washington’s will or else.

In the process it destroys freedom. Chalmers Johnson called war profiteering “the most efficient means for well-connected capitalists to engorge themselves at the public trough.”

Expect more of it, he warned. Expect tyranny to replace democracy.

Expect hell on earth so globalists can control it.

Maybe they’ll destroy it instead.

Ammo? What Ammo? : DHS Takes Unprecedented Step Of Redacting Mass Ammunition Purchase

 

 

From Alexander Higgins Blog

Alexander HigginsPosted by  – August 16, 2012

If there were ever a red flag, we think this is it as the DHS has issued a blackout surrounding its mass latest mass ammo purchase..

The Department of Homeland Security has redacted information relating to the quantity of bullets it is buying following a controversy concerning the agency’s purchase of over a billion rounds of ammo, which many fear is a sign the federal government is preparing for civil unrest in the United States.

Despite the fact that documents are only supposed to be redacted if authorized by Congress or for national security reasons, a solicitation posted on the FedBizOpps website yesterday concerning ammunition purchases made by the DHS on behalf of Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) contains numerous blacked out sections.

The Department of Homeland Security’s decision to black out sections of the document, including the number of bullets being purchased, is likely to be related to a massive controversy which has snowballed over the last few weeks pertaining to concerns as to why the federal agency has purchased well over a billion rounds of bullets over the last 6 months alone.

Given the fact that the DHS is also acquiring riot gear in preparation for civil unrest which could take place at the upcoming DNC, RNC and presidential inauguration, the purchase of ammunition in such massive numbers has stoked fears that the federal government could be preparing to use force against the American people.

This screenshot illustrates how the DHS has blacked out information pertaining to the amount of bullets being purchased.

The trigger for this could be an economic collapse that causes angry Americans to flood the streets similar to scenes witnessed across Europe over the last two years.

As Mike Adams writes, “The U.S. government clearly sees the writing on the wall. What lays ahead for America is a day of unbearable reckoning.

The financial collapse will wipe out savings accounts, pensions, investment funds and equities of the working class, all across the nation.

Imagine bank accounts being reset to zero, “bank holidays” enforced at gunpoint.

That will unleash a wave of violent protests, social chaos and even talk of revolution.

The government will almost certainly respond with a declaration of Martial Law, the rolling out of highway checkpoints, and before long, the use of live ammo on unruly protesters.”

One possible reason behind why DHS is now trying to erase any record of how much ammunition they are purchasing is newly proposed legislation in California that would red flag anyone who purchases more than 1,000 rounds of ammunition in a five (5) day period.

Perhaps Homeland Security’s redaction is an effort to stay off the red list (of which so many of our readers are certainly now members of).

All kidding aside, there must be something to this.

For what reason would a public agency redact a public purchase order without the approval of Congress?

Perhaps there is already a national security issue in place that we have not yet been made aware of.

As DHS notes in their order, there is an “unusual and compelling urgency” to purchasing this ammunition.

Apparently the one billion rounds already purchased in the last twelve months isn’t enough and Homeland Security is planning on running out.

Either they’ve been doing some serious target shooting across the country to burn through that much ammo, or they plan on using it soon and expect that a billion just isn’t going to cut it.

What could possibly be so urgent that they are running low given how much they have already stockpiled?

Congressional members are looking into banning online ammunition sales on a national level and now states are starting to red flag people for acquiring ammo in bulk, yet not a peep from Congress, the President or any mainstream media organization on why our government is stockpiling hundreds of millions of bullets.

If there were ever a red flag, we think this is it.

Police Release ‘Suicide’ Reenactment Video Of Handcuffed Man Who Shot Himself In The Head

 

 

From the Trenches World Report

Posted on August 15, 2012 by Clark Kent

Infowars  

Arkansas – Police in Jonesboro investigating the death of a man they detained in the back of a squad carhave released a video that they say explains how he could have shot himself in the head while his hands were handcuffed behind his back.

The story hit the headlines earlier this month as officers claimed that 21 year old Chavis Carter killed himself after being searched on suspicion of possessing marijuana.

Officers double-locked the handcuffs, making it harder for the lock to be picked, but claimed that Carter was able to pull out a hidden gun, raise it to his head and pull the trigger while they were temporarily away from the car.

The officers say they found a small, .380 caliber handgun and a spent cartridge in the backseat next to Carter’s slumped lifeless body.

They claim that the weapon must have been overlooked when they searched Carter, twice.

As part of the investigation into the death, and perhaps also in response to claims of foul play, police released a video, depicting several officers of different heights and builds being cuffed, but still being able to raise a concealed replica gun to their heads.

In a message at the beginning, the video is described as “non-evidentiary reproduction of facts and circumstances associated with the pending investigation of the Chavis Carter in-custody death.”

The message states that the scenes depicted were intended to investigate “the possibility that an individual, hand-cuffed behind his back, may or may not have the ability to use a concealed firearm in a manner that would give rise to his or her death.”

“The circumstances displayed are not intended to illustrate the only means by which an individual could injure themselves but merely to determine the feasibility of these actions,” the video states.

“The investigation is active and awaits forensic and other investigative material that will be used to complete a full inquiry into this matter.” the message concludes.

“The fact of it is, it’s very possible and it’s quite easy.” said Police Chief Michael Yates in response to CNN reporter Randi Kaye’s question of whether anyone could shoot themselves while handcuffed.

With regard to the mystery of the hidden gun, Yates said “It’s obvious they did miss the weapon on the first search. It is likely, since he was placed into the car unhandcuffed the first time, that he had an opportunity to stash the weapon in the car. The second search, which was more thorough and inclusive, did not disclose the weapon either.”

Sergeant Lyle Waterworth has attempted to deflect accusations of murder by claiming that officers could have easily missed the gun during the search.

“Any given officer has missed something on a search, be it drugs, knife, razor blades, this instance it happened to be a gun” said Waterworth.

Local activists have called for Yates’ resignation, saying that past racially motivated run-ins with black residents make him unfit to lead the investigation.

The Jonesboro Sun has also reported that only three of 145 members of the police force under Yates are black.

Carter’s family and supporters in the community say they have dismissed the suicide explanation as a cover-up for murder.

“I think they killed him, my son wasn’t suicidal,” said Carter’s mother Teresa Carter.

She has also noted that Chavis was shot in the right temple and yet he is left-handed.

Carter also points out that Chavis called his girlfriend while pulled over and assured her that he would be in contact again when he got to jail.

The AP reports that Russell Marlin, a Memphis, Tenn.-based attorney representing Carter’s family, does not believe that Carter was suicidal.

“By all accounts, he was a healthy, happy guy. There’s no reason to think he would have killed himself,” Martin said.

The officers involved in the incident remain on leave pending the investigation.

As police brutality in America escalates to new heights of violence and abuse, more and more unprovoked deaths are occurring, but punishments for officers who shoot victims dead are often miniscule.

In January 2009, 22-year-old Oscar Grant was shot in the back by policeman Johannes Mehserle as he lay on a platform at a railway station in Oakland California.

Mehserle was charged with involuntary manslaughter after he claimed he had meant to use his Taser and not a gun and ended up serving just two years in jail for killing Grant.
