Imagine that you despised your brother-in-law and wanted to kill him. But you didn’t have the guts to do it yourself so you hired a hit-man to do the job for you.

Would you still be guilty of murder?

You’re darn right, you would be. So let’s apply this same rule to US foreign policy: Would it be just as wrong to invade a country, kill its people and topple its government with militants that you funded, armed and trained as it would be with your own US troops?

Yep, it sure would be. So while some people might think that it was smarter for Obama to use a proxy-army in Syria instead of US soldiers, morally or legally speaking, there’s really no difference between what he did and what Bush did in Iraq. A US invasion is a US invasion. Period. It doesn’t matter if you use for-hire killers or your own guys. It’s all the same. Obama is just as guilty as Bush.

Why does it matter?

It matters because Obama’s Syrian policy has resulted in the deaths of 250,000 people and created 11 million refugees. That’s more refugees than Iraq. And the funny thing is, the media doesn’t even talk about it, in fact, there’s not one major media outlet in the entire country that has stated what everyone knows to be the obvious truth; that the United States is 100 percent responsible for the refugee crisis. 100 percent! Assad had nothing to do with it. US policy and our buck-passing president are entirely to blame.

The point is, the Democrats pursue the same policies as the GOP with some minor-tweaking at the edges. So if the hard-charging, but dimwitted Republicans decide to drag the country to war on a pack of lies, then the shifty Dems will try to be smarter about it; they’ll try to micromanage the public relations, preempt antiwar marches in US cities and avoid US casualties at all cost. Obama has succeeded in all of these things. There’s nobody in the streets protesting, the media has convinced most people that Syria is in the throes of a civil war, and there have been no flag-draped coffins returning to Andover Airbase because their are no US boots on the ground.  For all practical purposes, the Democrats have created our first completely invisible war. That’s quite an accomplishment, don’t you think?

The only glitch is that, after 4 years, Obama’s plan for toppling Bashar al Assad has failed. True, he’s destroyed the world’s oldest civilization and condemned its people to a hardscrabble existence for the next 20 years or so, but he’s failed in his primary objectives; to remove Assad, partition the country, and secure the territory he needs for vital pipeline corridors. So, you see, all the sneaky, underhanded methods the Democrats have used to secretly prosecute their war on Syria have backfired because the US is going to lose the war anyway.

Why is the US going to lose the war?

Because the Russian-led coalition has stopped Washington dead-in-its-tracks and sent the terrorist vermin fleeing for cover, that’s why.

On Tuesday, the Syrian Arab Army (SAA), the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and fighters from the feared Lebanese national militia, Hezbollah,  recaptured  the strategic Kuweires military airbase in North Syria killing hundreds of ISIS terrorists and liberating 250 Syrian soldiers who had been holding out at the base for more than two and a half years. The battle was downplayed in the western media mainly because it represents a critical turning point in the conflict. The Russian-led coalition is now the drivers seat while the “US-backed” jihadis are on the run.   The war’s momentum has totally shifted in Putin’s favor which means that Putin’s going to win and Obama’s going to lose.

Kuweires is Syria’s Stalingrad, the famous WW 2 siege which lasted from August 1942 to February 1943 when the German Wehrmacht was repelled by the ferocious Red Army in the largest and bloodiest battle in the history of warfare. While the scale of Kuweires is smaller by many orders of magnitude, it’s importance can’t be overstated. It wasn’t ISIS that was defeated at Kuweires; it was US foreign policy, a policy which has reduced a large swathe of the planet, extending from North Africa, across the Middle East and into Central Asia, into smoldering rubble. Kuweires was a key node in Washington’s plan to topple Assad and plunge Syria in failed-state anarchy. That strategy has now been rolled back, not by people waving signs in the streets or politicians appealing for peace and sanity, or diplomats at the UN “talking shop” who have become the de facto rubber stamp for US aggression. No. US policy was rolled back by Russian warplanes, heavy artillery, armored vehicles and highly-motivated, stiff-neck fighting grunts who put their country before their own personal safety. Get the picture?

For the last 15 years, the US has ruled the world through force of arms. Well, guess what; other people have weapons too, and they’re ready to use them. That’s the meaning of Kuweires. Other nations are refusing to accept a model of global world disorder where one country unilaterally arms, trains and deploys homicidal jihadi psychopaths to achieve its own narrow geopolitical goals. That’s a model that is seriously broken and needs to be replaced ASAP.  This is the task to which Putin and his fellow terror-liquidators have applied themselves, and they’re doing a pretty fair job of it too.

In the last week, the Russian-led coalition has made great strides in ending this madness and turning the tide on the imperial project.   As a result, Washington has been forced to rethink its approach and adapt to the rapidly-changing conditions on the ground. The evidence of this is everywhere, like this goofy article which ran at Huffington Post on Thursday. Check it out:

Supported by U.S.-led airstrikes, Kurdish Iraqi troops on Thursday seized part of a highway that is used as a vital supply line by the Islamic State group, a key initial step in a major offensive to retake the strategic town of Sinjar from the militants….

Hours into Thursday’s operation, the Kurdish Regional Security Council said its forces controlled a section of Highway 47, which passes by Sinjar and indirectly links the militants’ two biggest strongholds — Raqqa in Syria and Mosul in northern Iraq — as a route for goods, weapons and fighters….

“By controlling Highway 47, which is used by Daesh to transport weapons, fighters, illicit oil and other commodities that fund their operations, the coalition intends to increase pressure … and isolate their components from each other,” a coalition statement said.

(“U.S.-Backed Kurds Launch Offensive To Retake ISIS-Held Iraqi Town Sinjar”, Huffington Post)

So they launched a major ground offensive and cut off ISIS vital supply lines?

What a novel idea? Too bad no one in Washington thought about that before wasting the last 18 months blowing up camels in the dessert or whatever the hell they were doing.   And why has the Pentagon been playing circlejerk for the last year and a half while these freaks raped women, lopped off heads and wreaked havoc across the countryside when they could have pulled the plug on them long ago?

“Why”? Let me explain “why”?

It’s because ISIS is Washington’s favorite windup toy. They just let these hooligans “Do their thing” as long as they advance US geopolitical goals and, when they’ve served their purpose,  they stomp them out like a stag beetle. That’s the basic program. That’s how it works. Only now that Putin has been mowing down these gobshite takfiris like a combine-harvester slashing thorough the corn patch, the Obama crew has had to move on to Plan B: Liquidate ISIS and hold-on to those areas that were under ISIS control. That will give Uncle Sam the territory he’s going to need to set up his “safe zones” that’ll be protected by US aircover and serve as sanctuaries for  more troublemaking sociopaths who can be deployed back into Syria to perpetuate the conflict deep into the future. That’s the US strategy in a nutshell.

Washington knows now that the war is lost, so it’s looking for a way to keep a foothold in Syria for future mischief. The same is true on the Turkish-Syrian border where Sultan Recep Tayyip Erdogan is conspiring with Obama to set up a buffer zone on Syrian territory. Check this out in Today’s Zaman:

In the run-up to the Nov. 1 election, signals were given that if the Justice and Development Party (AKP) won, Turkey might well start up a land military operation in Syria….

Looking at statements from top Ankara officials in the days prior to the upcoming G-20 summit in Antalya, it does appear that we’ll have action in Syria sometime soon. No matter how often government officials signal Ankara’s desire to cooperate in air operations over Syria, the real fact of the matter is, Ankara would like to see Turkish troops enter Syria by land in warfare situation….

Signals are now coming in fast and furious that Turkey will enter into this war. What’s more, the signals are not limited to AKP statements; the assumption is spreading in the West, too, that this will be Ankara’s course. (“Is war on the horizon?“, Today’s Zaman)

Erdogan is a megalomaniac and a menace which is why Putin  had better keep an eye on him. And the same goes for Obama too. Obama may be down, but he’s not out just yet. He still has a few more tricks up his sleeve and he’s sure to use them before this thing is over.  Even so,  the advantage definitely goes to Putin at this point. He took on the entire Washington braintrust and beat them at their own game.

Like him or not, you got to tip your hat to a guy like that.

The Paris Terrorist Attacks, “9/11 French-Style”, “Le 11 Septembre à la Française”

By: Prof Michel Chossudovsky

Terrorist attacks have been carried simultaneously in several locations in the Paris metropolitan area, according to early report.

According to reports (at the time of writing) 100 people were killed in the Bataclan Concert Hall, when terrorists opened fire with automatic weapons. Another 15 were killed at the Stadium of France outside Paris.

Official reports at the time of writing (21.oo ET) point to more than 140 deaths. Our thoughts are with the family members of the victims, who have lost their loved ones.  

Within minutes following the attacks, which were launched simultaneously, and prior to the release of a preliminary report by the police, France’s media went into overdrive. News commentators and intelligence analysts on France’s network TV stated with authority that the attacks emanated from Syria and Iraq.

The media coverage of these tragic events was casually linked up with the war in the Middle East, highlighting France’s commitment –alongside its allies– in waging a “humanitarian war” against the terrorists.

The Islamic State was identified as the architect of the attacks.

The attacks were described without evidence as an act of revenge and retribution against France for having bombed ISIS strongholds in Syria and Iraq as part of Obama’s counter-terrorism air campaign.


Paris Match on October 2nd predicted a French Style 9/11, “un 11 septembre à la française”.

The threat is real, according to Judge Trévédic in an interview with Paris Match.  ”The attacks in France will be on  a scale comparable to 9/11″ (see below)

Click on image to enlarge

None of the early news reports on November 13th, mentioned the fact that a large scale and well organized terrorist attack had been predicted. The title of the media report below is:

“Intelligence services fear a 9/11 French Style”

Yet in a bitter irony the October report stated that these forthcoming attacks were difficult to avoid:  ”impossible a dejouer”, suggesting that French intelligence is inept and unable to prevent a forthcoming catastrophe.

What was the role of this media hype by Paris Match?

Media disinformation? Create an atmosphere of fear and intimidation?

Click on image to enlarge

 France’s president Francois Hollande no doubt was aware of the October warnings. He had been briefed by his intelligence advisers.

Shortly before midnight local time on November 13, president François Hollande announced drastic police state measures against an alleged terrorist network operating nationwide.

It is highly unlikely, however, that Hollande took this decision spontaneously in the evening of November 13, on the spur of the moment in response to the attacks and prior to the holding of a cabinet meeting The decision to enact a State of Emergency had no doubt been envisaged in advance of the attack in relation to a potential terrorist attack scenario.

As we recall, the last time a State of Emergency was enacted was in May 1961 in response to the Algiers putsch (Putsch d’Alger), a failed coup d’état to overthrow President Charles de Gaulle’s government.

Hollande’s midnight speech had the appearances of having been scripted –i.e with regard to the adoption of a State of Emergency, a far-reaching political decision:

My dear compatriots

As I speak, terrorist attacks of unprecedented proportions are underway in the Paris area. There are dozens killed, there are many injured. It is a horror.

We have, on my decision, mobilised all forces possible to neutralise the terrorists and make all concerned areas safe. I have also asked for military reinforcements. They are currently in the Paris area, to ensure that no new attack can take place.

I have also called a cabinet meeting that will be held in a few minutes. [the measures are announced before consultation with the Cabinet]

Two decisions will be taken: a state of emergency will be declared, which means that some places will be closed, traffic may be banned , and there will also be searches which may be decided throughout Ile de France (greater Paris). The state of emergency will be proclaimed throughout the territory (of France). 

The second decision I have made is to close the borders. We must ensure that no one enters to commit any crimes and that those who have committed the crimes that we have unfortunately seen can also be arrested if they should leave the territory. 

This is a terrible ordeal which once again assails us. We know where it comes from, who these criminals are, who these terrorists are. 

In these difficult moments, we must – and I’m thinking of the many victims, their families and the injured – show compassion and solidarity. But we must also show unity and calm.

Faced with terror, France must be strong, it must be great and the state authorities must be firm. We will be.

We must also call on everyone to be responsible.

What the terrorists want is to scare us and fill us with dread. There is indeed reason to be afraid. There is dread, but in the face of this dread, there is a nation that knows how to defend itself, that knows how to mobilise its forces and, once again, will defeat the terrorists.

French citizens, we have not completed the operations. There are still some that are extremely difficult. It’s at this moment that the security forces are staging an assault, especially in a place in Paris.

I ask you to keep all your trust in what we can do with the security forces to protect our nation from terrorist acts.

Long live the Republic and long live France.” (emphasis added)

France is under attack. we must defend ourselves.

The political discourse is in some regards reminiscent of the 9/11 attacks and the statements of George W. Bush et al.

The media immediately started comparing the November 13 attacks in Paris to 9/11, intimating that France was at war and that the alleged Islamic State attack was from abroad, i.e. the Middle East.

Police State Measures

President Hollande had ordered by decree without debate or consultation with France’s National Assembly the enactment of a State of Emergency throughout France, coupled with the closing of France’s borders allegedly to prevent terrorists from coming in, and from terror suspects from leaving the country.

The measures also included procedures which enable the police to conduct arbitrary arrests and house searches without a warrant within the Paris metropolitan area opening up the development of a potential hate campaign directed against France’s Muslim population.

These drastic police state measures (including the repeal of habeas corpus) ordered by president Hollande were decided upon prior and in the absence of a police report. Initial reports confirmed the involvement of half a dozen terrorists. There was no evidence of a nationwide terror network.

But as we mentioned above, Hollande had no doubt been briefed by French intelligence which had, according to reports, “predicted” the possibility of a 9/11 style attack. (October 2 media reports).

France had been heralded in Paris Match, October 2, 2015 as the Number One Target of the Islamic State, “a terrorist army with unlimited potential…” The threat and diverse forms it can take suggest that our counter-terrorist abilities are no longer effective as they used to be”

President Hollande assumed that jihadists were behind the attacks, but when he made his speech, there was no evidence from police sources to support his statements.

Moreover, with regard to the Bataclan Concert Hall where there were more than one thousand people at a Rock concert, the reports confirmed that there were four kamikaze terrorists, all of them were killed. As in the case of Charlie Hebdo and the Kosher Grocery Store terrorist attacks in January 2015, the terrorists were killed rather than arrested and indicted.

Was there an attempt on the part of the police to capture them alive?

Moreover, the media was held at bay, they were not allowed to report what was happening within the Concert Hall, they were prevented from talking to the witnesses underlying this tragic event.

Meanwhile a curfew was imposed.

President Obama made a declaration early in the evening (ET) largely sustaining the “war on terrorism” narrative:

THE PRESIDENT:  Good evening, everybody.  I just want to make a few brief comments about the attacks across Paris tonight.  Once again, we’ve seen an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians.  This is an attack not just on Paris, it’s an attack not just on the people of France, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share.

We stand prepared and ready to provide whatever assistance that the government and the people of France need to respond.  France is our oldest ally.  The French people have stood shoulder to shoulder with the United States time and again.  And we want to be very clear that we stand together with them in the fight against terrorism and extremism.

We’re going to do whatever it takes to work with the French people and with nations around the world to bring these terrorists to justice, and to go after any terrorist networks that go after our people.

We don’t yet know all the details of what has happened.  We have been in contact with French officials to communicate our deepest condolences to the families of those who have been killed, to offer our prayers and thoughts to those who have been wounded.  We have offered our full support to them.  The situation is still unfolding.

This is a heartbreaking situation.  And obviously those of us here in the United States know what it’s like.  We’ve gone through these kinds of episodes ourselves.  And whenever these kinds of attacks happened, we’ve always been able to count on the French people to stand with us.  They have been an extraordinary counterterrorism partner, and we intend to be there with them in that same fashion.

… (emphasis added)

Obama is committed to helping the French people, in going after the terrorists.  France is a partner of  Obama’s bombing campaign initiated in August-September 2014 which theoretically is directed against the ISIS.

Hollande is described by Obama as an “extraordinary counterterrorism partner”. In turn, Hollande referring to the Islamic State says “We know where [Syria, Iraq] it comes from, who these criminals are, who these terrorists are”.

The clash of civilizations is implicit in Obama’s statement: “this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share.”

Who is Behind the Terrorists? 

What the French media in its coverage of these tragic events fails to mention is that both the US and France, not to mention Britain, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Israel are covertly supporting various Al Qaeda affiliated terrorist formations in Syria and Iraq including al Nusrah and the Islamic State.

France is the victim of the Islamic State, but at the same time the US and its allies including France are “State sponsors” of the Islamic state which is an Al Qaeda affiliated entity.

Lest we forget, the US has supported Al Qaeda and its affiliated organizations for almost half a century since the heyday of the Soviet Afghan war.  CIA training camps were set up in Pakistan.  In the ten year period from 1982 to 1992, some 35,000 jihadists from 43 Islamic countries were recruited by the CIA to fight in the Afghan jihad.  Since the Reagan Administration, Washington has supported the Islamic terror network.

In recent developments in the Middle East, the terrorists are recruited and trained by the Western military alliance. NATO and the Turkish High Command have been responsible for the recruitment of ISIS and Al Nusrah mercenaries from the outset of the Syrian insurgency in March 2011. According to Israeli intelligence sources, this initiative consisted in:

“a campaign to enlist thousands of Muslim volunteers in Middle East countries and the Muslim world to fight alongside the Syrian rebels. The Turkish army would house these volunteers, train them and secure their passage into Syria. (DEBKAfile, NATO to give rebels anti-tank weapons, August 14, 2011.)

There are Western Special Forces and Western intelligence operatives within the ranks of the ISIS. British Special Forces, and MI6 have been involved in training jihadist rebels in Syria.

The Islamic State (ISIS), the alleged architect of the Paris attacks, was originally an Al Qaeda affiliated entity created by US intelligence with the support of Britain’s MI6, Israel’s Mossad, Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) and Saudi Arabia’s General Intelligence Presidency (GIP), Ri’āsat Al-Istikhbārāt Al-’Āmah ( رئاسة الاستخبارات العامة‎).

China unlikely to join Obama's anti-ISIS coalition: Report

The ISIS brigades were involved in the US-NATO supported insurgency in Syria directed against the government of  Bashar al Assad. Since August-September 2014, they are the object of Osama’s fake counter-terrorism campaign. The evidence, however, amply confirms that ISIS is protected by the Western military alliance.

With regard to France, a Washington Post  2011 report entitled “France sent arms to Libyan rebels,” confirms the role of the French government in support of the Al Qaeda affiliated Libya Islamic fighting Group (LIFG).

French officials announced Wednesday that they had armed rebels in Libya, marking the first time a NATO country has said it was providing direct military aid to opponents [LIFG]… 

According to Tony Cartalucci (Global Research: January 8, 2015)

While Hollande’s predecessor, former French President Nicolas Sarkozy would be the one to set foot in decimated Libya in the wake of NATO’s intervention there – which included in addition to French arms sent to terrorists, French planes providing these terrorists air cover as they carried out atrocities and genocide – Hollande would continue policies enacted under Sarkozy, both in Libya, and currently in Syria.

In early 2013, France joined its coalition partners in sending weapons to jihadist rebels in Syria including the Al Qaeda affiliated Al Nusra Front which France’s Le Monde identified as “moderate”:

The UK Foreign secretary William Hague, and his French counterpart Lauren Fabius, are leading an isolated charge within the EU to lift a supposed arms embargo to self-described ‘rebels’, hitherto destroying Syria for over two years. Several underlying factors need to be addressed before these diplomatic (some would say military) manoeuvres are put into context.

Firstly, the most obvious issue with allowing the UK and France to freely arm ‘rebels’ of their choosing inside Syria is that this policy is against all international law, and will, as proven already to be the case, continue to vastly exacerbate the growing death toll and displacement in Syria. As the head of arms control at Oxfam noted: “Transferring more weapons to Syria can only exacerbate a hellish scenario for civilians. If the UK and France are to live up to their own commitments – including those set out in the new arms trade treaty – they simply must not send weapons to Syria.”

In recent developments, the ISIS and Al Nusrah have joined hands. (Philip Greaves, Under the Disguise of The “Battle against Terrorism”: The U.S., Britain and France Support “Al Qaeda in Syria”, Global Research, May 28, 2013

The evidence amply confirms that while Russia is targeting ISIS strongholds in Syria, the Western military alliance is supporting the Islamic State terrorists.

The notion that the Paris attacks was an act of retribution and revenge directed against France is questionable and contradictory inasmuch as the evidence confirms that France has been channeling weapons to jihadist rebels in Syria including Al Nusrah and ISIS.

Concluding Remarks

On November 13, France was the victim of a carefully organized terrorist attack in different locations in the Paris metropolitan area, resulting in more than 140 deaths. The Islamic State was identified as the architect of this criminal undertaking.

What is intimated in the media reports of these tragic events is that the jihadists are attacking France.

But at same time, the countries which claim to be the victims of terrorism including France are involved through their intelligence services in supporting terrorist organizations in the Middle East. It’s called America’s “Global War on Terrorism”.

This contradiction has to be meaningfully addressed at the political level. The Global War on Terrorism is a lie which provides legitimacy to police state measures.

The state of emergency gives the police a green light to arrest on mere suspicion throughout France.

A telephone hotline is opened. Citizens  are invited to call and report anything which they consider suspicious.

Civil rights have been suspended.

Arbitrary arrests are occurring in Paris without warrant.

The attacks could potentially contribute to a new wave of Islamophobia.

Gazing Into the Abyss

Inder-ComarCommentary by: Inder Comar

Is it impossible to conceive of a peacetime USA?

Culturally and politically, American leaders with both political parties have declined to provide a vision to the American people of a country that has declared an end to war in the Middle East and the resumption of a peace time society.

Instead, the last 14 years of war have produced an overgrown Executive branch, unconstrained by law, by Congress or the judiciary.If nothing is done, the Executive branch, as a domestic institution, will almost certainly overwhelm Congress and the courts and will permanently disrupt the careful checks-and-balances system that is the hallmark of the American constitutional order. There is a real threat that unending war will create a domestic monster.

The hallmark of this overgrown Executive is the continued and unabashed violations of law with respect to military action.

Today, the Executive branch wallows in an aggressively militant governmental apparatus that routinely violates law and expands the boundaries — both legally and culturally — of permissible violent government conduct.

bush criminalBush-era illegality in the form of wars of aggression, torture, war crimes and domestic spying caused outrage amongst the public when these crimes were initially revealed.

But outrage without an outlet has, through some reverse osmosis, transmuted itself into a permanent cultural numbness.

The continued silence amongst members of the cultural, social and governmental elite with respect to Bush-era crimes permits a similar silence to surround illegal activities by the Obama Administration.

For example, the public seems to willingly accept the notion that the use of drone strikes (which in some instances may constitute illegal acts of aggression and crimes against humanity), the continued use of indefinite detentions at Guantanamo Bay and the normalization of domestic surveillance powers under national security auspices are the “new normal” — no matter whether laws are broken.

There is very little legal basis for Obama’s bombing of Syria, both internationally and domestically. In a functioning democracy, the bombing of a sovereign country would create widespread political discussion. Yet the decision in the US to bomb Syria was made practically overnight.

The same was true of the recent announcement — again, met with silence — that US ground forces would begin to enter Syria.

Even the bombing of a hospital in Kunduz, in what appears to be a clear prima facie war crime, produces mute commentary.

Carl Schmitt, the philosopher most associated with the intellectual defense of National Socialism, applauded a strong, law-breaking executive on the grounds of what he termed the “state of exception.”

Schmitt believed that in times of crises, a sovereign had to act outside of the normal constitutional framework in order to save society from existential threats. Schmitt thus defended the sovereign who violated the law, if in so doing, the sovereign could help a society delineate between friends and enemies, and give meaning to its citizens.

Nothing upset Schmitt more than the weakness of societies that had adopted liberalism, societies he viewed as hopelessly depoliticized and without the glory associated with a strong state.

Schmitt’s foul logic does much to explain the current “state of exception” in US politics. The supposed and ever present threat of terrorism is used as a means for the Executive branch to act outside of the law in order to save the law. Whether it is a Democrat or Republican in the White House, the law breaking remains the same.

Meanwhile, such illegal international actions threaten to shatter the remaining shards of what is left of the global peace. In attempting to “defend freedom” by the “war on terror,” the American government and its allies create further instability, which in turn creates additional violence directed against Americans. The CIA refers to this as “blowback.” It is not a difficult concept to grasp, and the fact that US leaders refuse to alter their conduct in the face of blowback means they are either too dense or too intentional in their use of military action abroad. Either conclusion should be frightening to a thinking person.

It is Hannah Arendt, another German thinker,  whose 20th century insights are even more profound in this current time. In her classic, Eichmann in Jerusalem, she coined the “banality of evil” as a phrase that described the seeming stupidity (or at least the clumsiness) of people like Adolph Eichmann, who were responsible for countless atrocities and yet were able to defend their actions with trite rationalizations that they were simply doing their jobs, or following orders. Today, there is a similar caustic fog that shrouds the culture, a darkness that no one speaks of, and an acceptance of criminal conduct by those in power. Empathy towards the countless innocent victims (perhaps millions at this point) who have been killed in their homes, their schools, or even at their own weddings, all in the name of the War on Terror, is entirely absent from everyday discourse.

Americans need only look to their Founders to understand the consequences of illegal warmaking. James Madison, the chief drafter of the US Constitution, observed, “Of all the enemies of true liberty, war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few.

“In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force, of the people.”

As Madison observed, war itself becomes a threat to domestic security and individual liberty. It acts as the pretext for an overgrown Executive and the beginnings of a criminal state.

Madison’s classical liberalism is now threatened by the views of Schmitt and other statists, who seemingly welcome the growth of the “unitary Executive” and the beginnings of domestic despotism.

So long as Americans give their leaders carte blanche to wage war in their name, to break laws domestically and internationally, and to avoid scrutiny or oversight for such conduct, then criminality will only increase, and with it, an increase in the potential for sudden instability in the global economic and political order.

“He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you.” Frederick Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil, aphorism 146.

WW III Inevitable & the US Cannot Win

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

The wheels are coming off of Obama’s flawed foreign policy as it relates to Syria. Congress has now heard testimony that the United States is not ready for World War III while Russia is chomping at the bit to “get it on”. Further Congress has learned that Obama has been once again been badly outmaneuvered by Putin, the master chess player.

Obama’s Duplicity Is Exposed By Putin

The Cold War was never this hot except 53 years ago during the Cuban Missile Crisis. But in that particular instance, the U.S. faced a potential Soviet nuclear attack upon the United States, by Soviet missiles being placed near the U.S. in Cuba. However, this march towards World War III is different, Putin has repeatedly requested the U.S.’s cooperation with the war against Mudlim jihadists in Syria, but Obama has steadfastly refused, and for good reason. Presently, Russia is the only foreign nation inside of Syria that is legally operating inside of  Syria. The Syrian government, headed by Assad, has invited Russia into his country. The great interloper, the United States, has invented and continues to support rogue terrorist organizations such as ISIS and the Syrian rebels in an attempt to unseat Assad in a desperate move to save the Petrodollar. The Syrian rebels and ISIS are illegitimate, rogue entities supported by the United States CIA. Under international law, the United States is a criminal nation supporting an illegal takeover of the Assad regime.

Putin continues to be a tactical genius. By inviting the United States to join his forces in ridding Syria of the criminal ISIS, Putin exposes America’s bad guy role in Syria.

Congress Has Finally Realized That the United States Is Going to be Attacked by Russia

putin hellbent on starting ww3At least some in Congress have set aside their insider trading ways long enough to contemplate how many different ways that the Chinese and the Russians are going to kick America’s rear end in the upcoming war.

In the coming weeks and months, look for a Congressional to invest in the construction of their of their soon-to-be hideaways while they create a safe haven, in places like Paraguay,

This past Tuesday, there were three congressional hearings that spelled out the future of America. In the first meeting of the morning, the Senate Armed Services Committee held a lengthy hearing on cyber-warfare and the possibilities of our enemies to take down our cyber infrastructure. In the afternoon, a second meeting was convened and it consisted of a subcommittee of the House Armed Services Committee which discussed the present size and deployment of the US fleet of aircraft carriers as well as their vulnerability to attack. Yet, another Senate subcommittee of the same panel discussed the modernization of US nuclear weapons in what I would dub a “day late and a dollar short discussion”.

Very disturbingly, there is a growing awareness, among Congress, that the United States cannot win World War III.

There was only discussion, in these congressional meetings, as to whether, or not, the U.S. could prevail in World War III, not win the conflict. In other words, Congress wants to know if it can expect its gravy train to continue courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer, to hell with winning the war.

Undeniably, the idea of World War III is being both implanted and normalized in the minds of policy planners. How would you like to be a fly on the wall as these double-dealing Congressman realize that their days of impromptu Congressional pay raises, increased medical benefits while they stick the nation with failed Obamacare policies, could be coming to an end?

Impediments to American Success In World War III

The people of the United States are vehemently critical of military intervention in Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, Syria, potentially Iran, Yemen and in North Africa. Americans are questioning why the present administration is willing to wreck the nation’s economy in order to carry out these imperialistic wars of occupation. The all-volunteer force is insufficient to carry on sustain these war efforts.

In the event of war, it is likely that the President would be forced to impose both a civilian and military draft in order to meet the needs to the country’s coming war efforts. The government would be drafting the same working class people, with declining pocketbooks, to serve in a military whose mission is already being negatively judged by the people who would be forced to serve in the coming war. This is a very tough sell for citizens who feels that their government has already abandoned them.

This kind of involuntary mobilization and servitude would result in a huge deterioration in the American standard of living for most Americans. And did I mention that many of these soon-to-be drafted men will die in combat fighting in a war that they are ill-equipped to win? And as  stated, these young men tend to be the children of the working class. This is the stuff that revolutions are made of.

A Stark Realization


While compiling data for this story, it dawned on me, that Obama has already prepared for these contingencies. This preparation took the form of Executive Order 13603.

If you desire to understand the implications that these events will have on you and your family, may I suggest that you take a moment and read about Executive Order 13603. If there is a silver lining to these events,  most of Congress will be in the same boat as the citizens that they have been plundering for years.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke has opened up about the recent gun control push by the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and Obama’s talks regarding an Australian-style gun confiscation plan here in the united States.

In an exclusive interview with Breitbart, Sheriff Clarke was asked about the recent focus change by the IACP from longer prison sentences for criminals to exclusively pushing gun control, partnering with the National Law Enforcement Partnership to Prevent Gun Violence (NLEPPGV).

“I was extremely disappointed when I heard that my fellow law enforcement executive colleagues had gotten into bed with Obama and his gun confiscation mission,” said Clarke. “That’s really what it’s about. It’s not about reducing violence, it’s not about reducing mass murder or suicides. The real intent of Obama and these gun groups is gun confiscation and they know they are going to have to do it step by step. They’re not going to be able to go after that today, as there would be fierce blowback. So they are doing it in stealth ways and this IACP meeting is one of those ways.”

Though Clarke said that police chiefs who met in Chicago “speak for themselves” and not for “the law enforcement profession,” he was saddened that the IACP had aligned themselves with the NLEPPGV.

“We, in law enforcement, have an obligation to be on the side of crime victims,” he told Breitbart. “Not on the side of the criminal element. Gun control has nothing to do with the crime and violence that these chiefs see in their cities on a daily basis and they know it. But many of them, especially in your large urban centers, are under the thumb of anti-gun, soft on crime, mayors. And they have to sing from the same sheet of music that their mayors are singing from.

“But the crime and violence we see in our cities and counties is not the result of a lack of background checks, and these chiefs know that,” he continued. “The research and data are there. Criminals don’t care about laws in general and they don’t care about gun laws or gun restrictions. They will find a way to get around those.  And that’s why I ultimately say that the chiefs’ push for more gun control has nothing to do with reducing violence. Rather, it has to do with gun confiscation.”

Clarke also made reference to Obama’s speech to the IACP last week, in which he not only made the ridiculous statement, “I reject any narrative that seeks to divide the police and the communities they serve,” which is clearly the opposite of what he has been doing (just look at Ferguson, New York, Baltimore, etc.), but also said, “It is easier for young people in this city and [communities around the country] to buy a gun than it is to buy a book.”

Clark believes this type of rhetoric is being used to manipulate the people of America into accepting more illegal gun control measures. So far though, the people have withstood against that temptation, and rightly so.

Both Barack Hussein Obama and Hillary Clinton have made reference to Australian-style gun bans and open talk of repealing the Second Amendment following the shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon at the first of October.

Sheriff Clarke doesn’t believe that Obama will be able to see gun confiscation during his term in office. However, he did show concern if Clinton were to be elected.

“But even they know it’s down the road,” he said. “I don’t know how far, but these people are slick, they are stealth in how they go about it. What they do is lay the groundwork, they pave the road approaching their ultimate goal of confiscation.”

“What Obama will try to do with his remaining time in office is further weaken the Second Amendment and frustrate the ability of people to keep and bear arms and purchase guns without having to jump through unreasonable hoops,” he added. “Then the next person will take it step further, then the next person, then the next, and suddenly you realize gun confiscation is within reach. And that is their goal.”

Finally, Clarke warned, “Between now and then they will go step by step, slowly conditioning the American people to buy into the lie.”

Already, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals has opened the door to an Australian-style gun ban in a recent ruling regarding the New York SAFE Act. These tyrants are moving slowly but surely in a manner reminiscent of the tyrants of our forefathers. Let us remember what our forefathers did when Britain came a calling for their arms… they gave them the lead first!

American wars

By: Roger Landry (TLB)

I have stated many times in the past that We The People are by virtue of our silence, complicit in the imperialistic warmongering perpetrated by our (so called) leaders! I have also stated that when the world tires of US dominance and brutality, they will rise up against us and We The People will not be pardoned for that silence.

You see the world is well aware of the (supposed) structure of governance in America, being government by the people … So our failure to hold our government accountable for its crimes against humanity, is by default (in the eyes of the world) our complicity in its very actions. Far too many times we have been told that our military escapades are meant only to bring freedom and Democracy to nations that wish this, but are denied it, or to protect our freedom and way of life.

American Interventionism and its Ramifications

Lets look at this lie in a historical context.

Please name me one nation in the last fifty years of US global military action, that we have invaded and beaten down militarily, that enjoys a truly free, prosperous and Democratic society today?

Is it Libya, bombed back to the stone age and fractured into a nonfunctional state?

Is it Afghanistan, bombed back to the stone age and fractured into a nonfunctional state?

Is it Iraq, bombed back to the stone age and fractured into a nonfunctional state?

Is it Vietnam, where we killed millions and is now ruled by a communist totalitarian government?

Is it Sudan, Ukraine, Lebanon, or Syria?

Shall I go on including all the sovereign nations in Eurasia, Africa, Central or South America that the US has interfered in and dominated for the last few generations?

Is there ANY country that is better off for the exercise of American imperialism within their borders … or are the only winners the Global Corporatist Elites who own, control and command our government and powerful military machine?


Now answer me this question. Please name any sovereign nation in the prescribed time frame, that we have decimated militarily, that ever had the power to rob you and I of our inalienable rights and God given freedoms … I hear crickets chirping …

So as we can see, the lies meant to sell the military actions perpetrated by the puppets of a global elite, are just that … LIES. And far too many of us bought the entire package hook, line and sinker.

America in all her imperialistic splendor has a mind bending death toll attributed to her quest to bring freedom and democracy to the world … estimated to be between 20 and 30 million (I would error to the higher number) as is well laid out in this article “Deaths In Other Nations Since WW II Due To Us Interventions”.

Here is a gentleman who puts it out as it is … Reality

Now here we go again with what may turn out to be the most disastrous military intervention in our entire history … Boots on the ground in Syria!

Syria is an entirely different animal then the weak, poor sovereign nations we have imposed our will on in the past. Is Syria strong enough militarily to oppose the US military might … NO. Is Assad a prince among men and a benevolent leader … NO. But that does not really matter in the eyes of most of the world today. Putin sees all this and more and is stepping up to short circuit US imperial dominance and interventionism in the region.

You can see that Syria is aligned politically and militarily with two of the most powerful nations on this planet, those being Russia and China … with Iran thrown in for good measure. Combined these nations constitute the most powerful military force on this planet with capabilities, strategic location, technology, weaponry and manpower that far surpasses anything Imperial America (and her minion nations) can field.

Yet even against these odds, and even with the real possibility of instigating a global war the likes of which this planet has never see … All Out Nuclear War … The US is preparing to put boots on the ground in Syria (or already has and with a Russian presence, finally has to admit it) … REALLY ???

Russia was “invited” into Syria (and now Iraq as well) by its government, but the US and her allies are not welcome (since when has the ever stopped them), making any incursions on Syrian soil by our forces a violation of international law in ANY fashion. Add to that the inevitable clash with Russian forces and you have a situation that WILL ignite the global war so many have been predicting.

The world is quickly tiring of US global military Dominance

America now faces off against Russia, China and their allies in both Iraq and Syria, and Russia condemns the US incursions into Syrian soverign territory without Syria’s approval!  There has never been the basis for a more disastrous scenario in modern history. The future looks very bleak right now for American imperialism and the world in general.

So the bottom line is … Stopping a US invasion of Syria before another Libya is created, is a priority in the worlds eyes, Why? And is Russian involvement enough to accomplish this? Or is this the gateway for global war?

We as a nation rose up in massive numbers to protest one war, Vietnam. Today we are involved militarily in well over 150 nations (some say as many as 170) globally, overtly or covertly. Isn’t it about time you got off your ass and said something … or, what will you tell your children when they ask … “Daddy why did the world rise up and bomb America back to the stone age”!

If or when this happens We The People will NOT be absolved, because in the eyes of the world, as a Constitutional Republic, it was OUR responsibility to keep our government in check, and by not doing so via ignorance, apathy or complicity … are just as guilty as those who pulled the triggers, fired the missiles or dropped the bombs!

The attached article will put this into a clearer focus for you in understanding just how the world sees America today … You may not like what you are about to read, but reality whether liked or not … remains reality.

Please read on …



US Invasion of Syria Begins

By: Tony Cartalucci

As previously warned about in June of 2015, the United States has announced that it will officially begin ground operations in Syria through the use of special forces. The Washington Post in its article, “Obama seeks to intensify operations in Syria with Special Ops troops,”would report that:

President Obama is sending a small number of Special Operations troops to northern Syria, marking the first full-time deployment of U.S. forces to the chaotic country. 

The mission marks a major shift for Obama, whose determination to defeat the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria has been balanced by an abiding worry that U.S. troops not be pulled too deeply into the in­trac­table Syrian conflict. 

The latest deployment will involve fewer than 50 Special Operations advisers, who will work with resistance forces battling the Islamic State in northern Syria but will not engage in direct combat, Obama administration officials said.

Admission of Special Forces in Syria is Just the Beginning 


While the US claims this move is to “defeat the Islamic State (ISIS),” it is instead clearly a move to establish long-sought “buffer zones” or “safe zones” in Syria where the Syrian government can no longer operate. US airpower will also undoubtedly be used to cover these special forces, creating a defacto no-fly-zone wherever they operate.

The map accompanying the Washington Post article clearly shows ISIS territory straddling the last remaining supply corridor being used to supply the terror group as well as others including Al Qaeda’s al Nusra Front from NATO-member Turkey’s territory. US special forces will likely begin operating in these areas, and zones carved out as US operations expand.

The eventual outcome, if these operations are successful, will be the division and destruction of Syria as a nation-state. This is more than mere speculation – this is a conclusion drawn by signed and dated policy papers produced by the Brookings Institution, who has called for such zones since as early as 2012, but under different contrived pretexts.

In the March 2012 Brookings Institution”Middle East Memo #21″ “Assessing Options for Regime Change” it is stated specifically (emphasis added):

An alternative is for diplomatic efforts to focus first on how to end the violence and how to gain humanitarian access, as is being done under Annan’s leadership. This may lead to the creation of safe-havens and humanitarian corridors, which would have to be backed by limited military power. This would, of course, fall short of U.S. goals for Syria and could preserve Asad in power. From that starting point, however, it is possible that a broad coalition with the appropriate international mandate could add further coercive action to its efforts.

More recently, in a June 2015 Brookings document literally titled, “Deconstructing Syria: A new strategy for America’s most hopeless war,” it is stated that (emphasis added):

The idea would be to help moderate elements establish reliable safe zones within Syria once they were able. American, as well as Saudi and Turkish and British and Jordanian and other Arab forces would act in support, not only from the air but eventually on the ground via the presence of special forces as well. The approach would benefit from Syria’s open desert terrain which could allow creation of buffer zones that could be monitored for possible signs of enemy attack through a combination of technologies, patrols, and other methods that outside special forces could help Syrian local fighters set up.

Were Assad foolish enough to challenge these zones, even if he somehow forced the withdrawal of the outside special forces, he would be likely to lose his air power in ensuing retaliatory strikes by outside forces, depriving his military of one of its few advantages over ISIL.Thus, he would be unlikely to do this.

Unfortunately for US policymakers, it is no longer only Syria that US special forces and accompanying airpower must worry about. Russia, by invitation of Damascus, is now operating militarily across Syria, including along Turkey’s border where the US has long sought to establish its “safe zones.”

The US has openly committed to the invasion and occupation of Syrian territory. It does so with the intent of carving Syria up into a series of dysfunctional, weak zones to literally “deconstruct” Syria as a functioning nation-state. It is doing this unable to cite any credible threat Syria poses to US national security and without any semblance of a mandate granted by the United Nations. It also does so with the prospect of triggering direct war with nuclear-armed Russia in a region Russia is operating legally.

A Desperate Move to Save a Bankrupt Agenda 

America’s latest actions are a desperate move sought by an increasingly hysterical political and corporate-financier establishment in Washington and on Wall Street. Recent hearings conducted by the US Senate Committee on Armed Services have struggled to produce a credible response to America’s unraveling criminal conspiracy aimed at Syria, particularly in the wake of Russia’s recent intervention. The committee and witnesses brought before it, have struggled to formulate a response – however – no-fly-zones and US troops on the ground have been discussed at length.

It is a poorly calculated bluff. The presence of US special forces and US airpower operating illegally in and above Syria, meant to deny Syria access to its own territory will take time to implement. The official number of US special forces being sent into Syria is said to not exceed 50. Syria and its allies could insert an equal or larger number of forces into these same areas to essentially create a “safe zone” from “safe zones.” Bringing America’s illegal actions before the UN would also be a sound measure ahead of potential confrontations with US forces operating uninvited in Syria.

The premise that ISIS must be fought and defeated by striking them in Iraq and Syria is betrayed by America’s own admission that the organization has already spread far beyond the borders of either nation. ISIS is clearly not supporting itself on the limited resources found within either country. Were the US truly interested in stopping ISIS, it would strike at its sponsors in Ankara and Riyadh. Of course, it was clear, well over a year ago, that the appearance of ISIS would be used intentionally to accomplish US geopolitical objectives in both Syria and Iraq, serving as a pretext for wider, long-sought after direct Western military intervention.

The myth that dividing and destroying Syria while deposing its sitting government will somehow alleviate the violence in Syria and reduce the ongoing migrant crisis Europe faces, is betrayed by the fact that a similar premise used to sell intervention in Libya has only led to greater chaos in North Africa, and the creation of the migrant crisis in the first place.

If the world, including Europe, seeks to prevent the spread of ISIS and the expansion of an already growing migrant crisis, stopping the United States and its partners before they create another “Libya” in the Levant must become top priority. And while it is unlikely that Europe will show any resolve in doing so, it would be hoped that Syria and its allies realize the consequences of failing now, at this juncture, and to whom’s borders the chaos will attempt to cross over into next.

A new species have risen from the poisonous American environment of arrogance, hubris & paranoia

The Rise of the Inhumanes – By: Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

America’s descent into totalitarian violence is accelerating. Like the Bush regime, the Obama regime has a penchant for rewarding Justice (sic) Department officials who trample all over the US Constitution. Last year America’s First Black President nominated David Barron to be a judge on the First US Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston.

Barron is responsible for the Justice (sic) Department memo that gave the legal OK for Obama to murder a US citizen with a missile fired from a drone. The execution took place without charges presented to a court, trial, and conviction. The target was a religious man whose sermons were believed by the paranoid Obama regime to encourage jihadism. Apparently, it never occurred to Obama or the Justice (sic) Department that Washington’s mass murder and displacement of millions of Muslims in seven countries was all that was needed to encourage jihadism. Sermons would be redundant and would comprise little else but moral outrage after years of mass murder by Washington in pursuit of hegemony in the Middle East.

Barron’s confirmation ran into opposition from some Republicans, some Democrats, and the American Civil Liberties Union, but the US Senate confirmed Barron by a vote of 53-45 in May 2014. Just think, you could be judged in “freedom and democracy America” by a friend who legalized extra-judicial murder.

While awaiting his reward, Barron had a post on the faculty of the Harvard Law School, which tells you all you need to know about law schools. His wife ran for governor of Massachusetts. Elites are busy at work replacing law with power.

America now has as an appeals court judge, no doubt being groomed for the Supreme Court, who established the precedent in US law that, the Constitution not withstanding, American citizens can be executed without a trial.

Did law school faculties object? Not Georgetown law professor David Cole, who enthusiastically endorsed the new legal principle of execution without trial. Professor Cole put himself on the DOJ’s list of possible federal judicial appointees by declaring his support for Barron, whom he described as “thoughtful, considerate, open-minded, and brilliant.”

Once a country descends into evil, it doesn’t emerge. The precedent for Obama’s appointment of Barron was George W. Bush’s appointment of Jay Scott Bybee to the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. Bybee was John Yoo’s Justice (sic) Department colleague who co-authored the “legal” memos justifying torture despite US federal statutory law and international law prohibiting torture. Everyone knew that torture was illegal, including those practicing it, but these two fiends provided a legal pass for the practitioners of torture. Not even Pinochet in Chile went this far.

Bybee and Yoo got rid of torture by calling it “enhanced interrogation techniques.” As Wikipedia reports, these techniques are considered to be torture by Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, medical experts who treat torture victims, intelligence officials, America’s allies, and even by the Justice (sic) Department.

Others who objected to the pass given to torture by Bybee and Yoo were Secretary of State Colin Powell, US Navy General Counsel Alberto Mora, and even Philip Zelikow, who orchestrated the 9/11 Commission cover-up for the Bush regime.

After five years of foot-dragging, the Justice (sic) Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility concluded that Bybee and his deputy John Yoo committed “professional misconduct” by providing legal advice that was in violation of international and federal laws. The DOJ’s office of Professional Responsibility recommended that Bybee and Yoo be referred to the bar associations of the states where they were licensed for further disciplinary action and possible disbarment.

But Bybee and Yoo were saved by a regime-compliant Justice (sic) Department official, David Margolis, who concluded that Bybee and Yoo had used “poor judgement” but had not provided wrong legal advice.

So, today, instead of being disbarred, Bybee sits on a federal court just below the Supreme Court. John Yoo teaches constitutional law at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law, Boalt Hall.

Try to imagine what has happened to America when Harvard and Berkeley law professors create legal justifications for torture and extra-judicial murder, and when US presidents engage in these heinous crimes. Clearly America is exceptional in its immorality, lack of human compassion, and disrespect for law and its founding document.

Hitler and Stalin would be astonished at the ease with which totalitarianism has marched through American institutions. Now we have a West Point professor of law teaching the US military justifications for murdering American critics of war and the police state. (Also here & the professor’s article is here)

William C. Bradford, the professor teaching our future military officers to regard moral Americans as threats to national security, blames Walter Cronkite for losing the Tet Offensive in the Vietnam War by reporting the offensive as an American defeat. Tet was an American defeat in the sense that the offensive proved that the “defeated” enemy was capable of a massive offensive against US forces. The offensive succeeded in the sense that it demonstrated to Americans that the war was far from over. The implication of Bradford’s argument is that Cronkite should have been killed for his broadcasts that added to the doubts about American success.

The professor claims to have a list of 40 people who tell the truth who must be exterminated, or our country is lost. Here we have the full confession that Washington’s agenda cannot survive truth.

I am unaware of any report that the professor has been censored or fired for his disrespect for the constitutionally protected right of freedom of expression. However, I have seen reports of professors destroyed because they criticized Israel’s war crimes, or used a word or term prohibited by political correctness, or were insufficiently appreciative of the privileges of “preferred minorities.” What this tells us is that morality is sidetracked into self-serving agendas while evil overwhelms the morality of society.

Welcome to America today. It is a land in which facts have been redefined as enemy propaganda, a land in which legally protected whistleblowers are redefined as “fifth columns” or foreign agents subject to extermination, a land in which America is immune from criticism and all crimes are blamed on those whom Washington intends to rule.

Barron, Bybee, Yoo, and Bradford are members of a new species—the Inhumanes—that has risen from the poisonous American environment of arrogance, hubris, and paranoia.

Christians and Americans, as a whole, on the endangered species list.

 By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you this way because of my name, for they do not know the one who sent me.”  John 15:18-21

The Anti-Christian Terrorist Network

Recently, and while campaigning in Massachusetts, Donald Trump stated that America was “going to hell”. Truer words were never spoken.

We are now five days removed when the low-life Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), and they are ordered to watch Christians and anyone else who might dare to disagree with the government.

Assistant Attorney-General John Carlin, head of the Department of Justice’s (DoJ) National Security division, announced this unholy deal with the SPLC on Wednesday.

The announcement was very specific as Carlin announced the government was going to persecute and prosecute the KKK, people who would engage in violence and anyone who held anti-government views. Most disturbingly, Carlin expressed frustration with having to follow due process when prosecuting the newest definition of domestic terrorism. If you have been away on vacation and missed this Gestapo type message, may I suggest you click here and here and catch up on the news you missed over the past few days.

Christians and the Obama Administration Are Natural Enemies

Who could ever forget the Hobby Lobby debacle in which Obamacare’s policies attempted to make any organization, including Christian organizations and private business interests acquiesce to its anti-Christian world-view and forcibly dispense birth control to its employees.

Although no officials are calling persecution of gays, Christian church doctrine is quite clear on the subject. Yet, Christians are being forced to not only accept the tenants of the LGBT, Christians are being forced to enthusiastically embrace the lifestyle in its business practices (e.g. the making of wedding cakes for gay marriages to the indoctrination being offered by some educational institutions to newest form of perversion which has come to America in the gender neutral bathrooms in which any pervert can invade the restroom of the opposite gender). Tolerance is one thing, forced acceptance is quite another. When Christians speak out against this forced acceptance, which emanates from liberal bureaucrats in Washington DC, this casts Christians in the untenable position as being anti-government. And according to the SPLC and Assistant Attorney General Carlin, this makes Bible-Believing Christians a band of domestic terrorists.

The Six Stages of Religious Persecution

Monsignor Charles Pope along with Johnette Benkovic developed a systematic theory of religious persecution. Both men point out, that the persecution of a targeted faction of society begins slowly and incrementally increases stage by stage. According to this theory, American Christians should be very cognizant that they are well into the first stages of extreme religious persecution which is sponsored by the Obama administration.

Stage one commences with attempts to stereotype the targeted group. In the aforementioned paragraphs, it is quite clear that Obama views Christians with disdain. After all, Obama announced that America is no longer a Christian nation. Also, in 2008, he categorized working-class voters in the following way: “It’s not surprising, then, that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”

According to Obama’s world view, people of faith are the inhibitors of “progress,” and they deserve being described as Bible-thumpers, and therefore ignorant, intolerant followers of Jesus Christ. With Carlin’s proclamations, our Christian views will soon come under extreme attack.

The second stage of persecution involves justifying hatred of a particular group. Just as soon as Carlin’s DOJ domestic terrorism task force swings into action, Christians will receive the terrorist label that the Obama administration believes that they so badly deserve. It is interesting the Carlin’s forces have partnered with the SPLC. They are so radical and so violent that even the FBI stopped using them as a source of information.

Stage three involves the marginalizing of Christians’ role in society. This is what Hitler did to the Jews as he first denied them employment in key areas of banking and education. It is at this time that every wrong act committed by a Christian will be highly vilified and publicized. It will be at this point that astute and aware Christians will be forced to go underground to practice their faith. With the church increasingly following under the domination of the Clergy Response Team, in which your pastor is an employee of the Department of Homeland Security, the church could soon be an unsafe place for Bible-believing Christians. Oh, there will still be churches, just not any churches that we would recognized as being Christian. I firmly believe that Carlin’s task force will usher in the first three stages of this approach to Christian persecution.

The fourth stage of Christian persecution involves criminalizing Christians and their churches, businesses, and educational institutions. Christians will be held up as the model for what is wrong with America with its intolerance for the free expression of every deviant lifestyle and social expression of sinful behavior. Hillary Clinton, who recently stated at the Sixth annual Women in the World Summit that “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed” for the sake of giving women access to “reproductive health care and safe childbirth.

Stage six ushers in the direct persecution of Christians. The time for marginalizing Christians stops and the outright, undeniable persecution begins. Churches will be forced to marry gays and will be forced to formally accept the validity of the teaching of every other religion (e.g. Islam), or be found guilty of a hate crime. Pope notes, even jail time for Christians is quite possible: Already in Canada and in parts of Europe, Catholic clergy have been arrested and charged with ‘hate crimes’ for preaching Catholic doctrine on homosexual activity.” Stage six will mark the beginning of the elimination of Christianity as a mainstream, viable religion.

Open Doors stated that Christians are the most persecuted religious group worldwide. An average of at least 180 Christians around the world are killed each month for their faith.


Who is Next?


Is this religious tolerance?

The United States Department of State stated that Christians in more than 60 countries face persecution from their governments or surrounding neighbors simply because of their

Open Doors also stated that in 41 of the 50 worst nations for persecution, Christians are being persecuted by Islamic extremists. As previously noted by this author, the Obama administration is filled with high ranking government employees who have ties to the terrorist group known as the Muslim Brotherhood.

Under the coming edicts of Carlin, Christians will soon be faced with a choice between standing up for one’s beliefs and be “fed to the lions”, or, to take their religious practices underground. Going underground seems to be the wisest of all choices. However, how far behind can the Mark of the Beast be?

It is so strange when you find in you the means to understand something, and you wonder where it came from. You may try to retrace your steps, but time and age distorts, and can’t be trusted. But then, in retrospect, one can see how change for the sake of change is foolish, and that is how the past becomes the good old days.

The thought here is profound, and not easily explained. It journeyed for thirty years with a barrier to overcome back in university called Plato’s Republic. There, to understand a conversation Socrates had with two young Athenians, Glaucon and Adeimantus, was the goal. They spoke of a chief psychological phenomenon that all men possess, a noble association with what is called courage, and the reasoning behind a reality where one will willingly risk everything, even one’s own life, for such a nebulous ideal.

In echoing marble halls, they studied and discussed the motivation of the solder, whose main objective in life was defense of the city. They wondered what would make a man risk his life for little or no pay, march in punishing conditions, sometime with meager nourishment, and danger. What was his motivation?

It was hard for children to study the writings of Hume, Alexander Hamilton, Hobbs, Machiavelli, and Nietzche, who spoke of “the beast with red cheeks.” In my early days, I just wanted to take pictures. Glad for it later, as those ideas became apparent in a simple but intense conversation in an Internet coffee shop of Czech Republic. It was like a ghost from the past…

My young Czech friend, Martin, Maddy and I, in from the snow, was discussing the human condition of pre-democratic Bohemia. Mind you, this was long before my country was given away, before I could identify with words like Socialism, Nationalism, Communism, or a declaration like Fascism.

Martin mentioned a man named Vaclav Havel, who became president of Czechoslovakia in 1998. He had been previously jailed as a dissident, and became the founder of a human rights organization there called, Charter 77, long before the democratic revolutions of Eastern Europe were achieved. He saw it as inevitable. He realized that men have in them, and assign to the world about them, a degree of worth. Plato called this worth, thymos, where men seek recognition based on what worth they assign to themselves and the world. While in prison, Havel formulated astonishing ideas as to the nature of the evil that was the core of the system that jailed him, and he published these thoughts in the 80’s in an essay called “The Power of the Powerless.” There he tells the story of the greengrocer, and although there isn’t the space to put it all here, in a nutshell it is about a grocer in a totalitarian society who has a sign in his window, “Workers of the World, Unite.”

Havel thoroughly questions the many various reasons why the greengrocer would agree to put that sign in his window. It protects the greengrocer, to a degree, from informers, and it gives a message to his superiors that it reflects their agenda and interests, while amazingly shields its real meaning. This meaning is evident to all who live by the enslavement of the spirit, and know that the sign should read, “I am afraid and therefore unquestioningly obedient,” but indeed it is the semantics that leaves the greengrocer a bit of dignity. It leaves the greengrocer with what is called “disinterested conviction” and allows him to express: “What is wrong with uniting the world?” Havel wrote: “Thus the sign helps the greengrocer to conceal from himself the low foundations of power. It hides them behind the facade of something high. And that something is Ideology.”

And why not just admit that he was afraid? The reason is quite simple. The greengrocer believes that he has a certain amount of worth. This is the real reason that totalitarian communism didn’t work. The greengrocer believed that he was more then his fear and need, and even though he didn’t know how to articulate it, he felt stronger, and possibly a bit smarter then those who tried to control him. He displayed that sign because he is capable of choice, no matter how subtle, and sorely for the sake of principle. He is, however, according to Havel, fooling himself, but non-the-less believes he is of sound principle, rather then being entirely fearful. But I think it really doesn’t matter, even if, because of fear, he didn’t express it at all. Survival is important, but if there is just a small glimmer of hope, freedom of the spirit surfaces. It is the nature of man.

Havel wrote: The essential aims of life are present naturally in every person. In everyone there is some longing for humanity’s rightful dignity, for moral integrity, for free expression of being and a sense of transcendence over the world of existence.” And then on the other hand he wrote: “…each person is capable, to a greater or lesser degree, of coming to terms with living within the lie.”

Is this our true reason for being: dignity, and its opposition, humiliation? Both are so evident in our daily lives, and yet those two words are the description Havel gives for life in communist Czechoslovakia! Though Brezhnev totalitarian states attempted to make the populace complicit, not so much by terror, but by the constant dangling of the features, advantages and benefits of modern consumerism,. It is a lie, as socialism, the redistribution of wealth, eats up motivation and pride.

This was the fuel, this desire for a better life, of material possessions, i.e., a vacation in the Alps, a refrigerator, and a foreign car, You see, materialism is the catalysts that pits the desiring part of the soul with the thymotic part. Once that hunger is there, nothing else will quench it. A true Totalitarian Government must constantly oppress free will, and when it can no longer function in its tyranny, it is doomed.

So here we finally come back to Plato’s thymos. It is defined in The Republic as an innate human psychological set of virtues like bravery, courage, idealism, principle, morality, self-sacrifice, and honor. Thymos is the process of evaluating these principles by putting value on them, and this value can be so powerful it can outweigh life itself.

As we evaluate ourselves in relation to how we perceive others to be evaluating us, whether accurate or not, we may then assign a value to ourselves based on that. Indignation is a feeling one gets when self worth is not balanced with what we perceive another’s set of values to be. This, in and of itself is what made some Americans so angry when Obama apologized to the world. We have assigned value to ourselves, and he took that from us. But then, those who didn’t see or understand the significance are slaves to the system.

Perhaps this model can help us ascertain the twisted reasoning that motivated the shootings these past few years in our American schools. These murdering individuals seem to have lost, or displaced, their value or self worth, considered themselves irrevocably separated, and placed that same negativity on the others they massacred. As the value they have for themselves are not shared by their peers, the indignation is too much to bear. So there is a desire here, for simple recognition, and it arises from the thymos.

The thymos phenomenon is a psychological attempt to balance by justice and selflessness, but at the same time is itself selfish in nature, and as Socrates pointed out, it has a potential to be an alley of reason, suppressing wrong or foolhardy desire. This duality can twist us into reacting to the world in anger and violence, and its understanding is paramount to getting control of our emotions. When our perceived values of both ourselves and the world are not recognized by others the thymotic self-assertion kicks in with feelings of frustration, questions of self-worth, and then anger. And also then, if a person become angry, for instance by indignation, he may react without regard for anything else, including his own safety. The Tea Parties are an example of this, but so far in control. It will change when the children are left home.

There are some that suggest that thymos is also the starting point for conflict, and the fundamental source of evil. On the other hand if the thymos is nurtured with positive affirmation, it can flower with untold conviction. As an evaluation of one’s self-worth, it can mean the difference between self-esteem or self-reproach.

Author’s note: I have been told that I care too much for what others may think of me. This is something that was taught perhaps in Mother’s lap. What control we have of these emotions, and the thoughts they induce, is proportional to the understanding we have of them, and the effort we set forth. A modification of the values that we held close as a child surely should be reevaluated to fit our adulthood. I’m not saying it’s easy. There are other avenues of the thymos that expands its understanding too. Megalothymia is the thymos at work in the authoritarian, or tyrannical type of person, and it’s opposite the isothymia. It defines a person’s need to be recognized as an equal. To learn more about values and how much of a role they play in how we think and act, there are several sources to go to, beside the ones I’ve mentioned. Read: “The End of History and the Last Man,” by Francis Fukuyama, “Nietzsche’s view of Socrates,” by Werner J. Dannhauser, and “On History” by Immanuel Kant.

And our own Velvet Revolution, a must see…

Police-State 1

 By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges

This article explores the latest in the ongoing implementation of more police state policies being implemented under the rule of law. This article will expose, through a careful examination of Assistant Attorney General, John Carlin’s announced intention to criminalize free speech as it relates to criticism of the government for its unconstitutional acts.

CNN Exposes a Very Dangerous Agenda

“Washington (CNN) Domestic terror groups pose a greater threat to America than ISIS or al Qaeda, a Justice Department official said Wednesday.

To help combat them, the department has created a new counsel that will coordinate the investigation and prosecution of anti-government and hate groups”. (Editor’s note: It is legal to be anti-government in one’s speech and this attitude does not imply the subsequent use of violence).

 From CNN, “Assistant Attorney General John Carlin, who oversees national security at the Justice Department, announced the new position — the Domestic Terrorism Counsel — following a number of violent attacks or plots against the U.S. that he said were motivated by “anti-government views, racism, bigotry and anarchy, and other despicable beliefs.”

Take note of the use of the strategy often referred to as incrementalism. Carlin vilifies groups that most Americans do not approve of (e.g.  the KKK, overt practices of racism, acts of violence etc.). However, Carlin slips into his rhetoric that anyone that characterizes any person harboring any expressed  anti-government views, as a domestic terrorist. This is a thinly veiled attempt to end all criticism of the government and government officials.

It is in the DNA of America to oppose governmental tyranny and that is precisely what we are witnessing in today’s Obama administration. It is our duty to protect and defend the Constitution. However, these “Anti-government” views and activities are being characterized as the actions of a domestic terrorist.


From the NDAA, to the plethora of illegal and unconstitutional Executive Orders, the present (Obama) administration has made a mockery of the Constitution. However, in the words our occupied government (i.e. analogous to the French Vichy WW II Nazi collaborators), this administration wants to declare you to be a terrorist for the simple act of disagreeing with the government’s mandates. If traditional, Bible-believing Christians oppose gay marriage, they are members of a hate group cult. No matter how offensive these Christian world views may appear to some, it is the Constitutional right of these conservative groups to hold and express these beliefs. Yet, these beliefs are being criminalized and the holders of these beliefs are being set up for persecution. The Constitution is dead, long live the Constitution! The world has turned upside down.

Again, the CNN coverage of Carlin’s inflammatory comments continues, “Groups such as ISIS and al Qaeda, who are inspired by religious extremism, are designated by our federal government as terror organizations, which makes it illegal to support or assist them. But no such statute exist to prosecute white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan or anti-government extremists, forcing federal law enforcement to find more concrete charges to lock them up”.

Did the Assistant Attorney General of the United States subtly ridicule the fact that law enforcement must have “concrete charges” before locking up a criminal”? Is the number two person in charge of our legal system mocking due process and characterizing it as a handicap to proper law enforcement practices?

Please also take note of the “guilt by association strategy” being employed by Carlin. Reasonable Americans do not sanction the actions of white supremacists groups, such as the Klan. However, in the same series sentence, Carlin throws in the term anti-government extremists. Therefore are we to conclude that if American citizens oppose the wealth redistribution strategies of the Obama administration which has led to the largest income gap in the history of this country, then we are to be considered to be a domestic terrorist? If Americans oppose the unconstitutional Trans Pacific Partnership, then these Americans are to be considered to be home-grown terrorists? Please note that all Americans who oppose the communist inspired actions of this administration are not white supremacists or planning to blow up buildings. Therefore, being a supporter of the Constitution is what is being criminalized here.

 Who Will Enforce the Attacks on the First Amendment?

Lisa Haven describes the newly announced the Strong Cities Network whose job it is to combat home-grown domestic terrorism. Here is Haven’s description of this program.

Americans Have Lost the Capacity to Resist

Last night, I received an email communication from broadcaster and ex-Green Beret, John Moore, which encapsulates where America is presently at with regard to possessing the capacity to resist this unfolding tyranny.

John Moore the host of the John Moore Show and a former Green Beret. I’m in my fifth decade of professional involvement with the Criminal Justice System. Up until a few years ago, a person accused of committing a crime was just a “criminal suspect” and the crime itself was just a “crime”.

Now it can also be a “hate crime” or “an act of terrorism” as if the additional verbiage makes the crime worse, more heinous, or deserving some special treatment, or additional punishment, over and above what this crime would be worthy of otherwise. Of course, the person accused is no longer just a criminal suspect. No, he or she is now a “Suspected Domestic Terrorist”.

As a side note, through the ease and (for us older folks) near magic of Netflix, I’m incrementally watching the entire “Twilight Zone” series from the late 1950’s, early 1960’s. I watched many of them when they were originally broadcast.

If there was a 1960 Twilight Zone episode portraying American adult men and women wearing PJ’s in public, bodies covered in tattoo’s, pieces of metal piercing their faces, nearly all adults being obese, men and women wearing tee-shirts as socially acceptable outer garments, about half of all adults being semi, or completely, illiterate, about 1/4 of all adults with prescriptions for psychotropic drugs, 8% of all adults being diabetic with nearly 50% being pre-diabetic, where 73% of 18 to 25 year old’s are either too fat, too dumb, too unhealthy, or have criminal records thus being unable to qualify for any branch of the U.S. Military, homosexuals can marry each other, sexual deviants are allowed to enter the locker rooms and restrooms of the opposite sex, our precious young women being raised to believe that they should embrace, as a fact, the concept of their being able to face a full-grown man in hand-to-hand combat as part of the U.S.M.C. or U.S. Army, et cetera, the show would have been regarded as a wild fantasy from the minds of Rod Serling and the show’s writers.

Obviously, we are sadly (and quite literally) living that fantasy in the early 21st Century.

May God help us.

            John Moore


I could not have said it any more clear than John Moore. The majority of Americans are slowly but surely abandoning their roots, the foundation of our culture. Many Americans have been pushed into a corner where they feel compelled to deny Jesus, forsake the law of the land and acquiesce to every perversion known to mankind.

My father’s family had roots in pre-Nazi and the post-Nazi takeover of Germany. I grew up hearing the stories from my German grandmother. This is exactly how the Nazis set the stage to legitimize the persecution of the Jews, homosexuals, gypsies and government dissidents. The same is taking shape here. I have a bad feeling that these philosophies, combined with some very concerning events, are pushing America towards her final solution.

To some unaware individuals, the use of the term “final solution” will seem extreme. However, we have psychological data and subsequent experiments that demonstrates just how easily these totalitarian goals could be achieved. This will be the topic of a future story.
