The Project for a New American Century
What is it? What Has it Done? Who is Involved?
NewsFocus, by Tim Watts - 072016 

The PNAC stands for Project for a New American Century. Formed in 1997 by conservative commentator Bill Kristol and Robert Kagan through the NCP, it is a secretive organization of neo-conservative US politicians, government officials, and private individuals of wealth, all holding strong ties and loyalties to Israel.

The group reached infamous notoriety when knowledge of their pre-9/11 wish for a "new Pearl Harbor" in the US went public, as documented in their policy paper, "Rebuilding America's Defenses."

The document was essentially a manifesto for world dominance. "Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a new Pearl Harbor."

This essential key point was not lost on this group.

Extreme doubt was cast as to how fast these aims could be achieved, even under a right-wing administration. They needed a catalyst that would force Congress and the public to go along with their plan for imperialism and power.

By their own numerous admissions, they needed a new Pearl Harbor. ...  (Read more)

NewsFocus Gets an Updated Facelift
YouTube Video to be treated differently
NewsFocus, bty Tim Watts - 041116

NewsFocus is getting a long overdue facelift. The site has been slowed down and encumbered by YouTube video over the years. With the advent of new security threats to YouTube, NewsFocus will only feature two or three embedded videos per page, from now on. All other YouTube video will be linked with a YouTube graphic, that will take you to a separate page to view the video. That will help with page loading times.

The idea is to clean the page up, get rid of old code, and make the pages load quicker. This will be an extended update, lasting for some time. Hopefully most site links are already working. Other new pages will be built out over the next few months.

The old site is still accessible on the new menu bar under "Archives." (The menu bar is also still under construction as new pages are added.)

The RSS News Feeds that used to be along the left column now have their own page. They too are linked above on the new menu bar, under "News Feeds."

We apologize for any inconvenience during this site update. We also thank you, not only for visiting this website, but for taking the time to look at news outside the interpretative mouthpiece of the mainstream corporate media, whose main primary task seems to be producing nothing more than butt-covering lies and PR spin.

...And the world became corrupted. Mankind was divided up into two classes, the conquered and the conquerors. And in the hearts of the people there was also a divide, between goodness and evil, altruism and avarice. The conquerors worshipped greed, and saw themselves as superior to the conquered, who they held as inferior. The conquerors enslaved the conquered, beguiling them of their wealth and resources, while forcing them to build a great civilization, with many technological inventions and weapons. With those weapons, other people were soon conquered. Eventually, an automated society was erected, facilitated by computers and technological mechanization, which ironically would further enslave the conquered, while also providing for their workforce replacement. One day, the conquered learned of their deception by the conquerors, and it was then that a great fear arose in the world, that the conquerors would try to escape prosecution for their immoral crimes, by killing off the conquered, out of their sheer indifference for them, in an act of shameless self preservation.

Was MO Auditor Tom Schweich Given an SSRI "Mickey?"
It's Highly Plausible: The Common Side Effect of SSRI Drugs Is Suicide
NewsFocus.org, Op-Ed by Tim Watts - 030615

Suspicious Circumstances Raise Eyebrows

The newest information in the death of Tom Schweich is undeniably a horse of a different color, the late revelation that he actually shot himself. This is now a whole different story with wholly new concerns to consider.

 

The first question out of the box would be, why was this information not presented eight days ago, in such a high-profile case?

 

The story reports that this critical new information was released on Thursday, as in March 5. That's exactly eight days later.

 

That's well over a week since this whole thing began, because Schweich died on February 26.

 

Wouldn't you think this information would have come forth sooner?

 

Think about that.

 

They've already buried the poor guy, and now suddenly this new blockbuster key information pops out two days after the funeral?  ... (Read more)

Who Killed David Crowley and Family?
Filmmaker of Controversial FEMA Martial Law Movie 'Gray State' is Found Dead in Home Along With Wife and Child
NewsFocus, Op/Ed by Tim Watts - 012215

Media Fails to Mention, Sliding Glass Door to Back of House Was Already Open (in winter) When Police Arrived

On Saturday, January 17, 2014 at around 1pm, police were called to the 1000 block of Ramsdell Drive in Apple Valley, Minnesota, to the home of filmmaker David Crowley, after neighbor Collin Prochnow reported seeing bodies and a black handgun lying in view of the front living room window.

Prochnow immediately called Apple Valley police.

He said that initially it appeared that his neighbors of over one and a half years hadn't been seen at home for weeks, and they had Christmas delivery packages that were piling up on their doorstep.

He also said that he "never heard any yelling, never heard any screaming--a husband and wife fight, or anything like that."

Upon arriving at the scene, police found the family dog, Paleo, inside the home, quite frantic and very upset.

After further inspection of the one-story rambler, police found three dead bodies on the floor of the living room, 29 year old David Crowley, his 28 year old wife Komel, and their 5-year-old daughter, Raniya.

All three had suffered gunshot wounds to the head.

The Hennepin County medical examiner's office is the official coroner of record, and they confirmed the identities of the bodies, saying that all three died of a gunshot to the head.

Raniya and Komel Crowley's deaths were ruled homicides, yet David Crowley's death was ruled a suicide.

The interesting thing about this case is that even though police officials immediately pronounced the deaths as an "apparent" murder-suicide, they did so despite the glaring, overwhelming fact that the sliding glass door in the back was suspiciously found open (in the wintertime) when police arrived, a fact that was exposed by the police dispatch recordings fom the event, as collected by MnPoliceClips.com.

This evidence has surprisingly enough not been reported by the mainstream media, or has been tragically downplayed. ... (Read more)

NewsFocus: Another alleged "murder-suicide" from someone with something tangible to say against the US government. David Crowley lived just minutes from me, here in Minnesota.

And so let me take this opportunity to publicly say, just for the record, that this reporter does not believe in murder or suicide. The same can be said for my family. With the way things are going here in the US with alleged "suicides," you can never be too careful. Enough said.

Note: There is a movie being circulated on the internet that claims to be an unreleased director's rough-cut version of Gray State, however, it is NOT the intended final production. The new video appears to be a promotional film, in documentary form, meant to help promote the eventual release of the larger film. Crowley even talked about releasing it before the new year. The short version of this promo piece is pasted above on this page, while the longer unfinished version is linked here.

The film Gray State, as depicted by the trailer, is a wholly much different production, along the lines of a big budget action-drama film, with real actors. and elaborate sets. You can actually watch the filming of the movie here and get a pretty good feel for how much effort was going into this project and what type of film it was going to be.

Again, it's clear that "Gray State: The Rise" was not going to be a documentary film. Don't be fooled. The newly released video, which claims to be an unreleased version, is nowhere close to the intended production. It's simply a pre-movie promotional piece, to be released in advance to help market the film.

Obama Continues 9/11 State of Emergency Order
When Does the Orchestrated Fear and Nonsense End?
NewsFocus, Op/Ed by Tim Watts - 091115

For the 15th time since September 14, 2001, a US president has signed a National Emergency Order regarding the attacks of 9/11. President Barack Obama made it official on September 10th, extending the state of emergency from 9/11, 2001, to September of 2016.

George W. Bush signed the emergency order eight times, every year from 9/11, 2001 through 2008.

Barack Obama has fulfilled his obligation to the powers that be by continuing to sign this document a total of seven times, every year that he has been in office.

Any bets on whether or not Obama will sign it again in September of 2016?

This is the proclamation that more Americans should know about, because it is an official State of Emergency Order (SOE) which carries the power and ability to gravely threaten or wholly rescind your Constitutional rights. ... (Read more)

Is Secret Technology Covertly Being Used on the US Population?
What Do You Think? Maybe You Don't, if DARPA and the CIA Have Their Way About It
NewsFocus.org, by Tim Watts - 022413

There is a rumor out there that is so insidious, so terrifying to entertain, that it truly makes you wonder about the credibility of the report, but yet, it does have some patent teeth to it. That's the scary thing. A new dark technology that can affect the human animal on a cerebral level, without them even knowing about it.

I first wrote about this technology on my NewsFocus.org website in 2005, but new reports continue to crop up... about one of our favorite three-letter intelligence services possibly using such a technology here at home, to potentially create domestic assassins or disposable terrorists. If you think that doesn't appeal to the CIA, you can quite reading right here.

Some have insinuated that the CIA, long known for creating and coveting their  brainwashed assassins, are using a new technology to create domestic assassins. Many people have asked whether the CIA might be clandestinely deploying this technology for select situations and events here in the US, to stir up trouble. There have been suggestions that dark technologies have been put into strategic use here in the US, for the purpose of creating havoc and chaos.

With electronic medical record access, it would be altogether too easy to select test subjects, based on their psychiatric disposition and their medication list.

A great many of these things more than likely have their roots deep within the MKULTRA program, or worse, a little-known hidden technology, such as SSSS. (And if the latter is true, it will blow your mind. Pun not intended.)

This new devious technology known as SSSS, Silent Sound Spread Spectrum, or S-Quad for short. This US patented technology (# 5,159,703), developed by Dr. Oliver Lowery of Georgia, is said to have the ability to implant thoughts into the human brain. Newer patents (# 6,470,214) from October 22nd, 2002 and (# 6,587,729) from July 1st, 2003, attributed to JP O'Loughlin and DL Loree, are purported to center on a technology described as synthetic telepathy.

While this indeed may sound s far fetched as anything you've ever heard, how can you discount any hideous technology from DARPA? With the patents that are out there, there appears to be some basis of foundation to the rumor.

Surprisingly enough, this technology is rumored to be easily mobilized for quick transport, while some is reported to utilize GWEN towers to broadcast their signal. Jesse Ventura's crew did a show on that, but after their Fusion Center episode, they decided not to go into too many details.

It's a very scary proposition to entertain, yet one with some interesting patent abstracts to help possibly make an argument. All we can say is, there is much information out there that this technology does exist. Follow the links above, or do your own search. It is indeed very dark subject matter. That much is certain.

 

Federal Reserve Secrecy Over Bailouts is a Violation That Could Legally Revoke its Charter
Despite the Widespread Rumor, the Fed Charter Does Not Run Out In 2012
NewsFocus.org, Op-Ed by Tim Watts - 120312
  
One thing that many Americans have come to grips with since the financial collapse of 2008 is that the Federal Reserve System is indeed a huge problem in the US, however, many still have no idea that the Federal Reserve is not owned by the US government. It is a private entity controlled by the ultra wealthy, such as the Rockefellers and Rothschilds, two scourges of parasite that have afflicted this world for many years.

The Fed was not concocted to help the US Treasury, but rather to take over the US government by bankrupting it, something that actually happened in 1933. Ever since its takeover of the US currency system in 1913, the Fed has led this nation into every war we've fought since, and profited its owners obscenely with illicit gains.

The Federal Reserve has pushed this country to the brink of disaster, with some feeling that this economic collapse was meticulously orchestrated. People are waking up to the idea that the Fed has not been acting in our best interests.

Case in point... the Bush and Obama administrations both gave lucrative bailouts, to the tune of around $700-billion and $800-billion, respectively. That is roughly in the 1.5-trillion dollar mark, but apparently the Fed went behind our backs and doled out far more than that.

After much effort from Congressmen such as Ron Paul (R) and Dennis Kucinich (D), a partial audit of the Federal Reserve was held for the first time in 98 years, secured by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. What the Sanders Report found out was that the Fed secretly and illegally gave out $16-trillion in zero interest loans to the largest banks and corporations, for which the Fed says US taxpayers are now on the hook for.

Many of the banks and corporations receiving these trillions coincidentally had at least 18 past and present directors from the Federal Reserve in their management. Sound like a conflict of interest to you?

The Fed bankers may have plundered the nation, but they also set up the potential for their own demise, because they acted in secret, illegally, behind the backs of Congress and the American people.

First off, the unfounded rumor that the Federal Reserve will expire on December 21st of 2012 is just that, a misinformed fairytale with no basis in fact. The following will clarify this:

U.S. Code TITLE 12 CHAPTER 3 SUBCHAPTER IX § 341. Second states:

“A Federal reserve bank shall become a body corporate and as such, and in the name designated in such organization certificate, shall have power—

First. To adopt and use a corporate seal.

Second. To have succession after February 25, 1927, until dissolved by Act of Congress or until forfeiture of franchise for violation of law.

So you can see, the original twenty year charter was extended indefinitely. There was no 99 year lease given to the Fed.

To be clear, the Federal Reserve does not lose its charter on December 21st of 2012, but we do now have the legal means to end their reign of terror, because of their blatant violation of their charter. The opportunity exits to finally kill the Fed.

The point here is that the Federal Reserve violated the law, committing Federal felonies by embezzling trillions of dollars without telling the Congress. This very clear violation of their charter gives Congress the legal authority to abolish this aberration from the US currency system.

The $16-trillion dollar question though is, will they?

Why Secession And Revolution Are Not The Best Ideas For The United States
NewsFocus.org, Op-Ed by Tim Watts - 111812

The idea has been floated that states should secede from the union and we should have a new American Revolution. Let me offer a few reasons why that is not our best option and should be a very last resort. First off, the only thing standing in the way of the new world order is the heavily armed people of the US. The criminals behind the evil NWO, like the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers, would like nothing more than to dissolve the United States. That makes their job that much easier.

Remember our forefathers' warning, "United we stand, but divided we fall?" Secession plays right into the hands of the new world order crowd. It's what they want, to destroy the union first and then pick us all off one by one. Our strength is our unity and they know that.

As for the 2nd American Revolution, those advocating such an instant bloodbath forget one thing, it's not an even fight.

When our forefathers fought against the British crown, the fight was somewhat of a level playing field as both sides fought with muskets and cannons. Today, that is not the case due to an incredible arsenal of high-tech weaponry and biological agents available to the powers that control the shadow government of the US. The 2012 NDAA insured that military force can now be used against "we the people" like it has never been used before. Last time I checked, they had tanks, fighter jets and helicopter gunships. Not an even fight by any means.

The addition of HR 658 and its 30,000 drones over America poses the most serious threat of all, because every home in America was GPS'd during the last census. Long story short, they have the coordinates to bomb your ass back into the stone age from 30,000 feet. You'll never see it coming. Sure we have lots of guns, but the first revolution was said to be fought by only 3% of the populace. Even if you bump that figure up today, it is still a lopsided fight that could end ugly, in a real hurry.

So please think about these things before you jump into something you can never retreat from. Talk of secession and armed revolution at this juncture in time only aids those wanting to divide and conquer this nation. It should be a last resort only, not a first strike. There are still other avenues to be traveled first, rather than just jumping emotionally right off the bridge into complete chaos.

Please don't get me wrong, we never give up the fight, but we also never let a superior foe force us into a fight that we are physically not ready for. Any military leader will attest to that. Those wishing for secession and revolution need to think these salient points through, very carefully, before acting impetuously with rash emotion, instead of reasoned intellect.

Again, dissolving the United States is their goal. Killing opponents of the new world order is their fervent dream. Don't let them manipulate your emotions to serve their agenda. Think first before you throw the baby out with the bathwater. Just sayin'.

 

Obama Quietly Signs EO Allowing for Shutdown or Takeover of US Communications Systems
NewsFocus.org, by Tim Watts - 07
0712

The surging US Police State gained another new Orwellian oppressive capability as President Obama signed into law a new Executive Order that allows for the takeover, or the shutdown, of all communications systems in the US.

As with NDAA 2012, the SIP, NDRP, and numerous other anti-Constitutional acts, Obama quietly signed the new order without publicity or any political fanfare on Friday, July 6th. The 2,205 word document states,

“The Federal Government must have the ability to communicate at all times and under all circumstances to carry out its most critical and time sensitive missions.

The covert signing is just another red flag that our government is going out of its way to amass more and more oppressive power, without the approval of We The People.

Unless specific provisions can be inserted to guarantee that the new EO has restrictions against government abuse, how can we be certain that this will not be used against us?

One thing is certain, Orwell is smiling from his grave.

I never thought that in my lifetime I would ever see a war that would outlast the Viet Nam War. How pitifully wrong I was.

Like all wars, you have to question the political and financial motivation, the latter being the most prominent impetus for war. With that said, we didn't attack Afghanistan because the Taliban wouldn't turn Osama bin Laden over. (They were prepared to, if we could provide proof of his involvement.) We attacked Afghanistan for pure imperial, capitalist exploitation.

The facts are glaring for those that care to look.

WAKE UP AMERICA! YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS!
Basic Stuff That Most Americans Are Embarrassingly Clueless About
NewsFocus, by Tim Watts 122309

Let's face it, Americans, for the most part the middle and upper classes, enjoy a pretty comfortable life. We own lots of cool things to make us feel good about our lives and we have oodles of fancy technology to provide us with modern conveniences never before ever imagined by our grandparents. Most of all, we are the most overly entertained society in the world. If you think that's a good thing, you would be remiss in understanding how the desire for comfort and pleasure has dumbed-down most of the lemming herd to the point that our only intellectual challenge these days comes from mindless trivia games that test our knowledge of pop culture.

There once was a time when the education of science, mathematics and history were the keys to knowledge, real knowledge that you could grow a society upon. Sadly enough though, that concept has now given way to what I like to refer to as mental minutia. What was Jimmy Walker's favorite catch phrase on Good Times? Who were the main pilots in Top Gun? How many kids did the Brady's have and what were their names? Americans appear to know more about inconsequential bullshit than we do about the inner workings of our political system, or the convoluted mechanisms that drive our economy and financial institutions. We have become disinterested in matters of the real world, accepting instead a narrow view provided by the talking heads of our overly glorified media. We have become complacent in our intellectual curiosity. We have become dangerously gullible and overly trusting of our politicians, but most threatening of all, we trust our media talking heads implicitly, with little question for the real news that affects us all. America has lost its way and we ourselves must shoulder a great deal of that blame.  ... (Read More)

3 Things You Should Know About the "Stupid Virus"
Recently, disease researchers yet again have discovered an emerging virus
Activist Post, by Heather Callaghan

Scientists at Johns Hopkins Medical School and the University of Nebraska stumbled on to chlorovirus ATCV-1, a DNA virus which comes from algae, while doing an unrelated test on throat microbes. Forty-three percent of patients tested had it in their throats. Among other things, it is found to lead to cognitive problems. You can read some mainstream articles here, here, here and here.

I think the headlines should have read a lot differently. This discovery could have big implications for people for a few reasons. Yet, where is the media panic now? No...now it's been made cute and funny by dubbing it the "stupid virus."

Nearly half of the people on the U.S. government’s widely shared database of terrorist suspects are not connected to any known terrorist group, according to classified government documents obtained by The Intercept.

Of the 680,000 people caught up in the government’s Terrorist Screening Database—a watchlist of “known or suspected terrorists” that is shared with local law enforcement agencies, private contractors, and foreign governments—more than 40 percent are described by the government as having “no recognized terrorist group affiliation.” That category—280,000 people—dwarfs the number of watchlisted people suspected of ties to al Qaeda, Hamas, and Hezbollah combined.

The documents, obtained from a source in the intelligence community, also reveal that the Obama Administration has presided over an unprecedented expansion of the terrorist screening system. Since taking office, Obama has boosted the number of people on the no fly list more than ten-fold, to an all-time high of 47,000—surpassing the number of people barred from flying under George W. Bush.

“If everything is terrorism, then nothing is terrorism,” says David Gomez, a former senior FBI special agent. The watchlisting system, he adds, is “revving out of control.” ... (Read more)

Facebook is Caught Doing Psychological Experiments Connected to Department of Defense Research on Civil Unrest
It turns out that one of the researchers who ran Facebook's recent psychological experiments received funding from the U.S. Department of Defense to study the contagion of ideas
SCGNews.com - 070114

There has been quite a bit of chatter this past week after it was revealed that a recent Facebook outage was the result of a psychological experiment that the company conducted on a portion of its users without their permission. The experiment, which was described in a paper published by Facebook, and UCSF, tested the contagion of emotions on social media by manipulating the content of personal feeds and measuring how this impacted user behavior.

Over 600,000 users were used as guinea pigs without their consent, which raises a number of serious ethical and legal questions (particularly due to the fact that this study received federal funding), however there is an even more disturbing angle to this story. It turns out that this research was connected to a Department of Defense project called the Minerva Initiative, which funds universities to model the dynamics, risks and tipping points for large-scale civil unrest across the world. ...

74% of Americans Don’t Believe They Have to Give Up Privacy for Security
CNSNews.com, By Paul Lagarde - 070114
(CNSNews.com) --Seventy-four percent of Americans across the ideological spectrum believe they don’t need to give up their privacy and freedom in order to be safe from terrorism, according to a new report from the Pew Research Center.

This view is shared across all seven political categorizations ranging from “steadfast conservatives” to “solid liberals,” making it one of the rare issues that a large majority of Americans can agree on.

Eighty percent of those Pew identified as “steadfast conservatives” and “young outsiders” believe that Americans should not have to give up privacy in order to be safe,  exceeded only by 83 percent of "hard-pressed skeptics."

Seventy-two percent of those identified as“solid liberals” agree. ... [Read more]

Newly Released Documents Show Outgrowth of ‘Homeland Security’ Is Corrupted Federal and Local Law Enforcement

Last week, the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF) released a trove of some 4,000 documents it obtained under the Freedom of Information Act showing that the movements of the mostly peaceful participants in the Occupy Wall Street protests were subjected to an “enormous spying and monitoring apparatus” that included coordination between the Pentagon, FBI, Department of Homeland Security, local police, private security contractors and corporate interests.

Increasingly, Americans’ time-honored First Amendment rights to peacefully assemble and dissent are playing out as open-season on protesters and mass arrests, followed by years of evidence destruction or tampering in court cases. ... (Read more)

 

Illegal NSA Surveillance of Americans: Secret Authorizations Granted by Bush and Obama
Global Research, By Eric Zuesse - May 15, 2014

The May 13th PBS “Frontline” documents that on 4 October 2001, President George W. Bush signed a secret authorization for the NSA to see the “metadata” (the to-whom, and from-whom) records for all phone calls, and also “a lot of content of phone calls. They’re actually recording the voices — not for all of our calls, but for a lot of U.S. telephone calls.”

Titled “United States of Secrets,” this documentary reports that only about a half-dozen people were informed of this operation, which was called “the Program.” NSA chief Michael Hayden was informed of it, and he supported it. Attorney General John Ashcroft was informed of it, but he opposed it as being illegal, a direct violation of the 4th Amendment, and also possibly of the 1st Amendment. The Justice Department was sidelined from it. President Bush’s order was drafted not by the President’s lawyer, Alberto Gonzales (though he supported it), but by David Addington, VP Dick Cheney’s Legal Counsel, who was not so much asked whether it was Constitutional...

From Rothschild to Koch Industries: Meet the People Who "Fix" the Price Of Gold
ZeroHedge.com, by Tyler Durden - 051414

Earlier today many were stunned when the historic, 117-year old, London Silver Fix announced that in three months it would no longer exist. However, silver is only one half of the world's two best known precious metals. Which is why we decided to take a long, hard look at that other fix: gold.

The reason for this particular inquiry is because in the aftermath of the rapid and dramatic departure of the world's largest bank by outstanding notional derivatives, and Europe's biggest bank by any metric, Deutsche Bank, from the precious metal fix, something felt out of place: almost as if the participants of the "fixing" process which for so many years took place in the office of none other than Rothschild on St. Swithin's Lane in London, were suddenly scrambling to disappear without a trace. ...

Regime Change: US is Global Source of Poverty and War
NSNBC.me, By Finian Cunningham - 121913
3 The latest bilateral deal between House Republicans and Democrats on the US federal budget is a shocking reminder3of the monstrous priorities for the American ruling class.

(PTV) , – Poverty, hunger, sickness and homelessness for millions more ordinary Americans; while unbridled US militarism stalks the globe like a demented Leviathan, casting a shadow of war and destruction into every corner.

American-dominated capitalism is a global scourge of poverty and war. It is much less American dream and much more humankind’s nightmare.
 

The disclosure this week that Russia is to deploy Iskander ballistic missiles in the Baltic region, and the double think, inverted accusations ensuing from Washington that Moscow is destabilizing global security, is part of this monstrous American-induced global dysfunction – more on that later.

US Republicans and Democrats – two sides of the same oligarchic coin – congratulated themselves on the recent federal budget package, which amounts to nearly $1 trillion in US government spending for each of the next two years.

But of that annual $1 trillion, the money allocated for military spending amounts to some $633 billion. That is, nearly two-thirds – more than 63 percent – of the total US government’s budget is consumed by the means of war and killing.

To give this some perspective, the US spends ten times more on weapons and the means of destroying and killing other human beings than it does on educating its entire nation.

What kind of economy, or more to the point, society, is that? A cynic might say that’s just what the American ruling class wants. Keep the majority uneducated and misinformed, while the military-industrial oligarchs and their political minions keep devouring the nation’s wealth.

This US war machine entails the maintenance of over 1,000 military bases around the world, patrolling of Chinese seas with nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers, expansion of missile systems across the Eurasian steppes encircling Russia, and the never-ending assassination drones that end up killing more civilians than “terrorists” in remote, barren countries. ...

Federal Reserve Audit Shows $16-TRILLION Given To Richest!
The Federal Reserve Audit
$16-Trillion Secretly Given Out By The Fed
"Oh Lucy, you got some 'splainin' to do."

Sanders.Senate.gov - 072111

The first top-to-bottom audit of the Federal Reserve uncovered eye-popping new details about how the U.S. provided a whopping $16 trillion in secret loans to bail out American and foreign banks and businesses during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. An amendment by Sen. Bernie Sanders to the Wall Street reform law passed one year ago this week directed the Government Accountability Office to conduct the study. "As a result of this audit, we now know that the Federal Reserve provided more than $16-trillion in total financial assistance to some of the largest financial institutions and corporations in the United States and throughout the world," said Sanders. "This is a clear case of socialism for the rich and rugged, you're-on-your-own individualism for everyone else." ... (Read More)

Bernanke’s 29 Trillion Dollar Fog of Deceit

GAO Audit Proves that Federal Reserve Bank is Crooked Gather.com

$8.4 Trillion Hidden PROFIT For Federal Reserve Cartel MarketOracle.co.uk

NewsFocus: I suspect that there is a much larger sum involved here, because these elite bankers are very adept at controlling their own money game. If they have allowed $16-trillion to be uncovered, it is a worthy bet that they are hiding far more than that. Case in point: The Rothschild family has hidden its immense wealth from the world for years. They control the fiat money game, so they know how to hide wealth. Since they also control the Federal Reserve and the World Bank, it is entirely within their realm to hide the extent of their latest money bomb on the world. For the record, this audit says nothing about the Federal Reserve's money laundering and financial scams that have been perpetrated since the Fed's inception in 1913. NewsFocus is willing to wager that the $16-trillion bailout scandal is but just the small tip of an enormous, still submerged, mammoth monetary iceberg.

Update: Since this story broke, it is interesting to note the publications that have gone out of the way to diminish the amount that was truly given out. Some are trying to say that the Fed has only doled out a mere $1.6-trillion, but that can't possibly be all of it, if the GAO audit indeed truly uncovered extra hidden payouts, because we already knew about that figure from the Bush ($700-billion+) and the Obama ($800-billion+) bailouts. It looks as if the cover-up and disinformation campaign is underway. (Bloomberg article)

9/11 and the Orwellian Redefinition of "Conspiracy Theory"
Global Research, by Paul Craig Roberts - 061911

While we were not watching, conspiracy theory has undergone Orwellian redefinition.

A “conspiracy theory” no longer means an event explained by a conspiracy.  Instead, it now means any explanation, or even a fact, that is out of step with the government’s explanation and that of its media pimps.  

For example, online news broadcasts of RT have been equated with conspiracy theories by the New York Times simply because RT reports news and opinions that the New York Times does not report and the US government does not endorse.

In other words, as truth becomes uncomfortable for government and its Ministry of Propaganda, truth is redefined as conspiracy theory, by which is meant an absurd and laughable explanation that we should ignore.

When piles of carefully researched books, released government documents, and testimony of eye witnesses made it clear that Oswald was not President John F. Kennedy’s assassin, the voluminous research, government documents, and verified testimony was dismissed as “conspiracy theory.”

In other words, the truth of the event was unacceptable to the authorities and to the Ministry of Propaganda that represents the interests of authorities. ... (Read more)

That made me start to take note of how the government went after the people. I wondered if it would be the same here, if the government ever declared martial law against "we the people."

Many were alarmed at just how quickly the Egyptian government was able to somewhat isolate its people and restrict their communications ability. The sad fact is, it really didn't take that much effort, so it is worth noting the methods used by the Egyptian government to suppress its people. ... (Read More)

A team headed by award-winning journalist Lulu Fries’dat, statistician Anselmo Sampietro, and professor Fritz Scheuren (100th President of the American Statistical Association) has found irregularities in the overwhelming majority of the twenty-one presidential primary states that they analyzed. Their data indicates, in particular, that the totals reported on the Democratic side in the race between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders may not be correct. In state after state, independent examination by two separate analysts found suspect statistical patterns giving Clinton inflated percentages that, in all likelihood, are not fully based on actual votes, and showing Sanders with what appear to be artificially depressed totals.

If we as a nation, are truly serious about saving the dream of our forefathers' republic, then I would  suggest we seriously get busy, because yesterday is already behind us, and yet each and every day more is done to take more of our freedoms away from us.

Since 9/11, more laws have been enacted in the US to restrict personal freedom and constitutional rights, than at any other time before in this nation's history.

As recent history has clearly shown us, we can no longer expect our elected representatives to write good laws for us. It appears that we now have to do that ourselves. That is the topic of this article.

As an example, just look at what your Congress has done to you under the guise of saving democracy and making you safe, through the shameless use of fear and unchecked terror...

How Does the DOJ Continue to Ignore 9/11 and Larry Silverstein, and a do it With a Straight Face?
Two Public Admissions That Fail to Raise the Slightest Curiosity

NewsFocus, by Tim Watts - 061216

How is it that no one has investigated 9/11 on just Larry Silverstein alone?

The guy that bought the World Trade Center just six months prior to 9/11, had it heavily insured for terrorist attacks and consequently made over $4-billion in profit, then publicly admitted he had building 7 pulled "after such terrible loss of life."

He originally created much controversy with that single statement. He then tried to somewhat recant his admission by saying that what he actually meant was to have the firefighters pulled from the building.

The only problem is, firefighters were never sent en masse to fight fire at building 7.

Oops.. faux pas numero uno. Stepping in kaka-pile number one.

Silverstein then apparently slipped badly once again, this time while giving a speech to a pro-Israel group in 2014. He was nonchalantly talking about the reconstruction of building 7, recounting the chronological process of the rebuild, when he stated that the plans for the new building 7 were drawn up in April of 2000.  ...

The country has grown by millions of people during that time.

Gun sales have also grown, exponentially, by the millions.

Yet, murder by gun... has dropped... by an unbelievable 50%!

Murder by gun has literally been cut in half, despite a swelling population and exploding gun sales.

The current rate of death by gun is a paltry .003%, not even 1%!

Every oppressive regime, from Mussolini - to Hitler - to Pinochet, has kept a list of those who stood against them. Most criminal government cabals always like to keep tabs on those who know their sins.

Such a system has been in effect here in the US, since the attacks of September 11, 2001.

The US has secretly been keeping track of those who question or stand opposed to the atrocities of a government gone awry since 9/11, first by Bush-Cheney and now afterwards by the Obama-Biden regime.

United States citizens are being monitored and scrutinized, simply because they've been reflective or critical of a rogue government and its criminal element - treasonous US officials who have literally gone batshit crazy, off-the-chain since 9/11.

These are just some of the news investigations that NewsFocus is currently involved in...

Proclamation 7463 - This State of Emergency Order (SOE) went into effect immediately after 9/11. It has been resigned continually, eery single year since then, by both George W. Bush and Barack Obama. This is much concern that this SOE suspended the US Constitution and implemented a shadow government under recently revised Continuity of Government (COG) plans through the auspices of NDAA.

Trancelerate Biopharma - The pharmaceutical companies have come together in collusion to form a bastard offspring corporation whose primary objective is to help Big Pharma companies escape Federal regulations. Funded by the major pharmaceutical corporations, the first job of this entity is getting rid of drug ads that reveal known human safety issues. Though little known to the public, company officials call Transcelerate Biopharma an industry "collaboration," when in all reality it is nothing more than corporate "collusion."

Suicide Is On The Rise In The US 30%, in key adult demos, according to CDC statistics. Given the myriad number of suicide prevention groups in the US, it's quite alarming that this number is not going down, it's going up, and quite significantly! This rise in suicide coincidentally matches a 400% rise in SSRI drug use in the US during the same time period, and SSRI drugs carry a primary side-effect of suicide. As a caveat: the US now has a program called "Healthy People 2020," whose stated goal is to identify more psychologically stressed and mentally challenged people, all so they can dispense more dangerous mood altering SSRI medication to the US populace. This initiative will more than likely continue to raise the suicide statistics further, all the while directly benefiting Transcelerate Biopharma and its Big Pharma owners with billions in obscene, immoral profits.

Astana - There is an engineered city being built as the new capital of Kazakhstan, called Astana. Nestled between Russia and China, it's the futuristic, modern day Dubai of Eurasia. Astana is supposed to mean "capital," but some say the name is actually an anagram for Satan. That's because the interesting thing about Astana is that it's been laid out and designed with tremendous occult symbology. Because of that, some are also calling this "Illuminati City." Much of its recruited population is under the age of 40. The question is, how does the ongoing city construction of this Eurasian wonder relate to the current war going on there?

Phillip Anschutz - There are unreported questionable relationships to the Aurora, Colorado theater shootings through intertwined business associations, such as sponsorship of a University of Colorado research lab facility, the Anschutz Medical Campus in Denver, reportedly involved in experimental cognitive conditioning for the creation of super-soldiers (of which James Holmes was a study participant), and also as majority owner of Regal Entertainment Group, the largest movie theater chain in the world, with approximately 7,000 screens.

US Mass Shooting Cover-Ups - Aurora, Colorado Theater, Wisconsin Sikh Temple, and Sandy Hook Elementary... these shootings all had FOUR people involved, not just one, as the corporate media has reported. Secondly, deranged people do not go to schools to act out their aggressions, as has been suggested by the media. Deranged people predominantly seek those who have offended them. Only someone with an agenda goes to a school, multiple times. The only thing that makes sense is that those are coordinated attacks from black-op intelligence, seeking to create a mass public fear over guns. It would appear that covert psyop events such as these are being planned and executed to further a no-guns agenda in the US, to make people think there is a gun problem, despite the fact that there isn't. Fact: murder by gun is only .003 percent of the US' 310-million person population, even though its citizens own well over 300-million+ guns. This documented FBI national statistic clearly and undeniably proves that US gun owners are actually quite responsible with their firearms. There is no gun problem. It appears that the only issue with guns in the US is that someone seems hell-bent on manufacturing a reason to take them away.

Militarization of US Law Enforcement - The unjustified expenditure of billions of tax-payer dollars to militarize local law enforcement, at a time the FBI says violent crime and gun violence has been dropping dramatically in the US. This was all started by former CIA Director George HW Bush while he was president, creating the 1208 Program under NDAA 1990-91. Bill Clinton later expanded the practice under two new NDAA's, creating a new 1122 program in 1994, and then rolling 1208 into a new 1033 program in 1997. Both 1122 and 1033 are redundant programs. The current US police state was carefully crafted, orchestrated and erected against US citizens at a time that it clearly was not needed, and at taxpayer expense.

Urban Warfare Training in US Metropolitan Cities - This post-9/11 military training, in conjunction with local and state law enforcement, is a direct violation of US Posse Comitatus law. These are unnecessary dangerous maneuvers which threaten dense civilian metro populations, because the US military already has access to at least 13 tax-payer funded multi-million dollar state of the art training facilities specifically built and designated for such activity. These raids are planned with strict secrecy, with very few city officials ever knowing until it happens. They undeniably place civilians in harm's way, in deference to the military's agenda. That's ass-backwards for a free society.

These are stories that NewsFocus is currently investigating. Further reports and updates will be published on this website.

 

 

Techno Murder: The New Weapon for Assassination
Reporter Hastings Death Is Another Instance To Ponder
NewsFocus.org, by Tim Watts 080113

The bizarre death of reporter Michael Hastings has many in the alternative media pointing fingers, with accusations of murder being directed by some towards the US intelligence community. Interestingly enough, some in the mainstream media have taken note as well, and perhaps that was meant to be - to send a signal to the press, that if anyone should try to expose them, this is what they can expect.

There are many ways to control the media. It's really very simple to understand. Either you buy it up, or you instill fear into those you can't buy out. Fear is the same powerful tool that they use against everyone. Reporters and members of the media are no different than anyone else, and as such, they are also not immune to the fear threat.. ...

Why Do They Want To Take Our Guns Away?
What They Don't Want You To Know--There Is NO Problem With Guns In The United States!
NewsFocus.org, by Tim Watts - 032813
 

Despite the fact that all of the mass shootings in this country have nefarious origins, beyond what has been reported in the media, there is no reason to take our guns away. In Wisconsin, Colorado and Connecticut, all of the mass shootings were the work of multiple shooters. That's a fact that the media hasn't told you. (See the video below)

 

The FBI says that murder by gun has gone down for five straight years in a row, even with the questionable mass shootings included. Now, here are the real numbers that they do not want you to know. In a country of 310-million people we had only 8,583 murders by gun. That comes down to just 0.003% of the population. Not even 1% !! That is an infinitesimally diminutive number. It's laughable!

 

So ask yourself, where is there a gun problem in the US?

 

Then ask yourself another question, why didn't the corporate mainstream media tell you this?

 

No one has ever talked about this statistic, until now.

 

Just remember, you heard it here first.

 

Please see the two exclusive stories below for the real facts on gun crime in the United States...

 

The Gun Control Issue
Media Deception: False Gun Claims

 

DHS, Feds, Load Up On Hollow Point Ammo
Many Are Questioning: Why Is The US Government Preparing Deadly Force Against Its Own Citizens?
NewsFocus, by Tim Watts - 032813
 

At a time when most Americans, including local police, are finding it impossible to buy ammo, the US government is continuing to stockpile extra lethal hollow point ammunition, prohibited for use in warfare by the Geneva convention.
 

So why is the US government loading up on extra-lethal ammo that is obviously intended for domestic use?
 

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has tried to say the ammo is for target practice and that they are buying in bulk to save money, but hollow points cost far more than full metal jackets, and no one uses expensive hollow points for target practice. So much for that excuse.
 

Over 2-billion rounds have been purchased in the last ten months, with 240-thousand rounds bought just last month. Now, DHS is buying another 360-thousand rounds. When totaled, this is enough ammo to pump at least seven rounds into every single man, woman and child in America.
 

At a time when many are concerned about an ever growing US police state, some have suggested that the purchases also serve another function, limiting the amount of ammo that is available for the American public, at a time when Congress is trying to implement public gun control.

The addition of HR 658, which authorizes 30,000 drones for US airspace, has some wondering why the Congress and our government is turning against the American people. During the Bush-Cheney era alone, Federal law enforcement agencies grew by nearly 30-percent from 2004 to 2008.

 

One thing appears certain, DHS and the US government are preparing for a deadly fight with the American people, and our elected representatives have done nothing to stop it.

 

Subjecting Congress to the Same Checks That They Hold us to
If They Can Infringe on Our Rights, for Others' Crimes, Then They Need to be Held Accountable for the Crimes of Their Peers as Well
NewsFocus.org, by Tim Watts - 030113

With the gun debate raging in the US, many Americans have been outraged by the temerity of Congress in calling for restrictions on our 2nd amendment Constitutional right. After all, the 2nd amendment specifically says that this right "shall not be infringed," so why do our elected representatives think that they are able to go over our heads and ask for something that the greater majority of We The People did not call for?

The attacks in Aurora, Colorado and Newtown, Connecticut are alleged to be attacks from lone gunmen, one person that flipped out and decided to just start shooting innocent people. While that premise is a bit far fetched, and also considering that there is ample evidence from both shootings to prove that accomplices were involved, how is it that Congress feels it has the right to make us pay for someone else's crimes, by restricting our Constitutional rights?

They did this to us after 9/11, taking away our Constitutional rights because of someone else's crimes, especially crimes that have indubitably nefarious government connections. Congress took it upon themselves to restrict and infringe upon our rights with the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, and the Homegrown Terrorism Act, to name but just a few.

The Bush-Cheney administration and the US military were clearly guilty of numerous faux pas on that fateful day, with former officials such as President George W. Bush, Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and General Richard Myers, who was acting Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, all intimately involved in the circle of failure to defend the US, yet not one person in our government or military were reprimanded, indicted, or stripped of rank due to their own personal failures on that fateful day.

No one in the government or the military was made to pay for their lack of proper action or their failure to fulfill their duties to We The People on 9/11, yet they made us pay the price by going after our Constitutional rights.

How the hell is this a proper course of action?

A Different Take on Global Warming
Is it Possible 'Naturally,' or is it Engineered?

NewsFocus, by Tim Watts - 012414

Why is it that when it gets cold, FOX News viewers ignorantly start to scream about how there is no global warming? They couldn't be any farther from the truth if they tried.

There is global warming happening. Temperature records show it.

So, the real question is, is it natural or man-made?

Is it temporary or permanent?

I have to say up front, it's not really totally fair to pick on FOX viewers per se, because the disinformation comes from FOX itself and its Murdoch corporate overlords who have done everything possible to support the march to the heinous  new world order.

What the skeptics and the naysayers at FOX News don't seem to understand is that severe cold in North America is the result of global warming. The cause of it... now that's the real question.

There is a whole twist to the global warming argument that many people are missing... the earth's response to extreme temperature increases.

Many are remiss in recognizing basic geo-science, something known as the Atlantic Engine. It is the great ocean conveyor of current that circles the Atlantic in a clockwise fashion. This current is responsible for helping regulate temperatures across the northern hemisphere.

The problem comes when temperatures at the poles rise and melting snowcaps start dumping cold, fresh ice-water into the Atlantic current; this comes primarily from the Labrador current, which brings the ice-cold water along the east coast of Canada and the US. When this water is introduced into the Atlantic engine near Greenland, it slows it down. That is a very bad thing for anyone hebetating the north, man and animal, because when the Atlantic Engine slows down, it starts to get colder across the northern hemisphere. ... [Read more]

Poll: 60% Say US Gov Has Too Much Power
Over Half of Americans See The Problem At Hand
NewsFocus.org, by Tim Watts - 092613

A new Gallup poll says that 6 out of 10 Americans think the Federal government has far too much power, up from the previous year. Since 2005, at least half of Americans have said the US government has had too much power, despite two administrations where both Republicans and Democrats have had a hand at the helm. The number of those who are discontent has now grown to well over half the US populace, rising to 60% of the country, a very decisive majority.

According to the poll, Republicans and Democrats were  surprisingly closer on the issue under Bush than they are under Obama, with far more Democrats refusing to admit that there is a problem. The deception of Hope & Change still has yet to hit home for some. You can see the survey here: Gallup Poll

 

Know Thine Enemy
Understanding Their Drive and Their Fear Can Help You Beat Them
NewsFocus.org, Op/Ed by Tim Watts -
030113

The true enemies of this world are not adversarial nations or terrorist organizations. As a matter of fact, these two factions are actually driven by the real evil in this world, the ultra-wealthy who control everything.

Granted, within this equation are nobility and aristocracy - kings and queens, emperors, barons, tycoons and magnates - those of unfathomable opulent wealth, but it's not always the position you hold as much as it is the money.

As Mayer Amschel Rothschild once said, "Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws."

Rothschild was absolutely correct, because those who control the money supply  of a nation control that nation. In today's world, the central bankers do appear to have supreme rule over all.

Make no mistake about it though, bankers or not, the true controllers of this world are without a doubt those possessing unimaginable obscene wealth, the billionaires and trillionaires who have looted their vast fortunes through either thievery, unsavory business dealings, and/or the unscrupulous exploitation of free-for-all unregulated capitalism.

If you doubt such a premise, perhaps you have not given much thought as to how the machinations of evil are perpetuated upon society. ... [Read more]

 

When the War on Terror Turns on us All
Silence is Golden; Is the NDAA Used as a Way to Get Rid of "Threats" to the State?
NewsFocus Op/Ed, by Tim Watts - 120511

Part I

As if our American civil liberties haven't been assaulted enough, there is a new and very dangerous threat that has presented itself from Capitol Hill. Our conniving politicians in Washington DC, the "District of Corruption," have once again passed anti-Constitution legislation against "we the people" without our consent. It's called the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

The irony of this new bill is that it's directed at domestic terrorism, all the while it seemingly punctuates a very good argument that the main source of terrorism in this country hasn't come from a foreign threat, but from our corporate tit sucking politicians.

The legislation of NDAA is a foreboding threat if ever there was one. ... (Read More)

Identifying the True Terrorist Threat
Who Gets to Say Who the Real Domestic Threat is to the United States?
NewsFocus Op/Ed, by Tim Watts - 121611

Part II

As the fictitious newscaster Howard Beal said to his captive studio audience in the 1976 movie Network, "Woe is us, we're in a lot of trouble!" He then went on to elaborate on his dire warning by saying, "Because you people and 62-million other Americans are listening to me right now. Because less than three percent of you people read books. Because less than fifteen percent of you read newspapers. Because the only truth you know is what you get over this tube. Right now, there is a whole --there is an entire generation that never knew anything that didn't come out of this tube."

And so it goes with today's society. The Oscar nominated movie was right on the mark with its characterization of modern America. It was no accident for that assessment to be made. They knew full well 35 years ago about the threat that a corrupt media posed to an open society.

Call it blind trust of our media, lack of intellectual curiosity, blinding ignorance, or blatant stupidity, it is because of these shortcomings that we are held in the dark on matters of politic and state. ... (Read More)

FEMA DOC AND NDAA COULD BRING MARTIAL LAW CRACKDOWN
An Engineered Collapse of the Economy Would Trigger a US Police State
NewsFocus Op/Ed, by Tim Watts - 122111

Part III

In September I wrote a piece titled The Fascist Takeover of the United States. It was my assessment that the current economic meltdown was no accident. It was a devious,  meticulously calculated plot to sink the United States and the world to its knees, to bring about the long planned new world order dreamt about by the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers. It wasn't rocket science to figure out. All you had to do was look at the facts of the crisis and then examine the recourse taken by the Federal Reserve. Our best and brightest financial minds took a 180 away from the best option to stimulate the economy, choosing instead to bypass the taxpayer, retail and manufacturing, and going right to the crooks that created the disaster in the first place. Please see my article which is linked above for more on this.

That was my first clue that something was awry, that something was terribly amiss. It is impossible to think that our best and brightest economic minds somehow missed the impending collapse of 2008. It is unfathomable to consider that the financial geniuses of this country, people highly educated with master's degrees in economics and finance, didn't see this coming, nor understand the proper approach in how to dig ourselves out. The fact that they took the backasswards approach to the bailouts was a huge tip-off for this reporter. They chose to compound the problem with hyperinflation and to reward the crooks that are responsible for the collapse. So that was question one for me that something was terribly wrong.

The next red flag that stood out was the renewal of the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2012 (NDAA). Normally a defense spending bill, but this time it had a new twist added, the indefinite detention of people "suspected" to be terrorists, including American citizens.  ... (Read More)

 

White House Prepares Martial Law Plans
Conscript
ed  Service, Takeover of Personal Property, And Natural Resources
NewsFocus, by Tim Watts - 031712

The White House has struck again with another Executive Order to stifle life as we know it in the US. Not surprisingly, the new order was released on Friday, prior to the St. Patrick's Day weekend. Whenever the powers that be want to hide news, they do it on the weekend, when the news cycle is slow due to low viewership.

This weekend they released an announcement of the NDRP, the National Defense Resources Preparedness plan. In this new Executive Order they claim the right to force people into service camps, to take our personal property and all of our natural resources. This is a total overhaul of the US, with a new government structure, without the approval of "we the people."

This is a total takeover of absolutely everything! This new Executive Order redefines and reorganizes the United States government in a most radical fashion, one that could very well be deemed oppressive to its people.

This last Executive order is outrageous in its scope and egregious in the temerity and hubris with which they re-shape our society. The government has given itself the ability to steal our personal property and take our natural resources, as well forcing service without compensation.

As you read along in this Orwellian restructuring of the US, you have to gasp and ask yourself, under what dire conditions do we have to endure for this EO to be enacted... but then you notice the language that says all of these drastic nation restructuring acts are allowed under peacetime as well!

Excuse me, but why the hell do we need to drastically restructure the nation in peacetime? Does this make any sense to you?

Of course they will probably say they will never use such power against we the people, but how do we accept their word for it, in light of all the times we've been lied to by our government?

The new NDRP, just enacted on March 17th, is as deadly as the Patriot Act or the recently passed NDAA. Once again, the mainstream media has let this martial law-style Executive Order slide by, just as it did with NDAA and HR 658.

This new Executive Order needs to be read by every single American! ...  (Read More)

 

The People's Oath
Our Rights Have Been Oppressed by the Ultra-Wealthy for Long Enough
NewsFocus.org - Op/Ed - 041511

It's about time that Americans adopted the same position that those who oppress them have taken.

"We the people" reserve the right to do unto those that have afflicted us.

To the central bankers, the ultra wealthy, and the multinational corporations... we reserve the right to do unto them and their families as they have done to us.

To our corrupt politicians and leaders, we recognize no laws that you have made in secret against us. Any such laws made against the people shall be considered as treason by "we the people," and thus considered null.

We refuse to recognize any government of tyranny, for it is an unlawful affair.

"We the people" recognize ourselves to be the only authorized form of legitimate government, a legal authority given to us by our forefathers, and guaranteed through the U.S. Constitution and its Bill of Rights.

Don't tread on us and we won't tread on you. 

 

The Current Depression Was Carefully Engineered
Economic Statistics Paint A Damning Picture Of Forethought And Treason
NewsFocus Op/Ed, by Tim Watts - 091411

Let me start this piece out by stating that the current economic depression that we are currently in was meticulously orchestrated and skillfully engineered. If you haven't come to this conclusion on your own yet, perhaps you are not paying close enough attention to the cold hard facts that have come forth from this economic nightmare. The proof is in how the Fed handled, or mishandled, the matter. The notion that our best and brightest economic minds did not see this coming is pure bullshit. The fact that no one has been indicted or jailed for allowing this is disturbing on every level.

Plenty of folks are pointing the accusing finger at unscrupulous Wall Street practices, and rightfully so. Wall Street and its soulless parasitic minions of greed are a huge part of the collapse. The truth is, this meltdown was a mammoth raging tsunami nearly a mile high that couldn't be missed. This in itself is a telling indicator that the fix was in. There were so many destructive mechanisms in place, that it is impossible for the financial brain trust of Wall Street and the Federal Reserve to deny foreknowledge of this catastrophe, ...

Taking Our Country Back: Regaining Our Forefather's Republic
These Are Important Steps To Regaining Our Constitutional Rights In The U.S.
NewsFocus, by Tim Watts - 081911

Our forefathers are more than likely rolling in their graves as they watch our government turn into a police state. A country that they worked hard to perfect, and fought and died to protect, is no longer the land of the free. Despite the cries of uneducated pundits, we are not moving to a system of socialism, we are moving to a strengthening fascist state. The only socialism threatening our country is the bail-out of the ultra-wealthy. The only welfare state dragging this country down is clearly corporate welfare. "We the people" have been passed over for the privileged few.

If we ever hope to regain what we have lost, here are five points that we can start with:

1) Take back the media! Under the current corporate media we have no watchdog to save us from corrupt politicians, rich oligarchs and government tyranny. Without this necessary overseer of democracy we have no accountability for the truth.

2) End the Federal Reserve System and restore the power to issue money to the U.S. Treasury Dept. End the illicit bank cartel that has bankrupted our country.

3) Enact sweeping campaign reform and get the big money out of politics, particularly corporate money. Politicians are elected to serve "we the people." not corporations.

4) Kill HAVA! Until it is gone, we have no ballot box accountability. Electronic voting has been proven to be highly vulnerable to hacking. Every election cycle since HAVA has had documented cases of hacking where votes have been stolen, or added, to influence the outcome of key elections. Give us back our right to representation through honest, free elections.

5) Get rid of the PATRIOT Act, the Military Commissions Act, and all other Constitution threatening legislation that have neutered, if not killed, the dream of our forefathers.

These five points would be positive steps in restoring the republic of the United States.

Media Deception: You Are Not Getting The Truth
The Corporate Media And Network News Is Controlled And Works Against Us
Truth Must Spread By Word of Mouth, By We The People, Or Else It's Never Told
ATN Op/Ed, by Tim Watts - 080611

If you've never seen the 1976 movie "Network" you've missed one of the best Oscar nominated films on the power of the media over people. The media is supposed to be the watchdog over the American republic and our democracy, but few know or realize that it was usurped nearly 100 years ago and has been completely stolen from us in the last thirty years since the advent of Reagan deregulation.

Don't believe it? Put down the TV remote and do some research on your own for once, instead of being spoon-fed your news, or disinformation, as it truly is.

In 1917, Congressman Oscar Callaway documented in the official Congressional record that multi-millionaire JP Morgan infiltrated the U.S. media for the sole express purpose of controlling it. Morgan hired twelve of the top news managers to help him determine the most influential newspapers in America. The idea was to find the primary key news institutions that other news outlets looked to and were thus influenced by. (This is documented by Callaway in the official US Record, volume 54, February 9, 1917.)

Once the editors arrived at a consensus, Morgan then bought or infiltrated the top 25 news organizations reported to him by his task force of news managers. An editor was assigned to run each paper, making sure that all news stories were controlled and that the watchdog for freedom was officially castrated. ... (Read More)

 

My Favorite Wall St. Protest Sign

This one pretty much sums it all up for most Americans.

 

NewsFocus has put together a useful webpage of some important things you need to know about 9//11. If you've been wondering what all the fuss is about, but never took the time to look, here's a webpage to get you going on the inside scoop.

Don't think for a minute that the corporate media has told you the truth when it comes to 9/11, and the ensuing trillion dollar wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Over 50% of Americans are uncomfortable with the official explanation of 9/11 and are calling for a new investigation.

All Americans need to be united together in this endeavor, because no truer statement has ever been made about our country, "united we stand, and divided we fall." Make no mistake about it, this was an attack on the United States as we used to know it, with our Constitution set squarely in the target sight. We are all going to have to fight together in order to save the democracy that we so proudly cherished.

Educate yourself on the facts and evidence of 9/11. Once you realize that there is a concerted effort to cover-up the whole event, you will understand why you've been misled from the start. Learn who was responsible for 9/11 and recognize the changes that have been forced upon us all. Most of all, become vocal and educate others.

Muslims Are Not the Issue in this World!
An Entire Community of People Ostracized and Lumped Into One Hate Group
NewsFocus.org, Op-Ed by Tim Watts - 031611

If there is one thing that I loathe, it's the hate that came forth from the evil Bush-Cheney administration regarding Muslims and Hispanics. Nothing was said about these two groups, until the Bush-Cheney "fear machine" set upon us all. Goebbels would be so damn proud, because those two dumb-asses were able to convince the rest of America that these two groups of people were "evil-doers." I cannot even say that intellectually deficient phrase without laughing, but I also cannot get past the remorse I feel over those who bought that ridiculous, asinine lie.

Is this really the America we stand for now? We are, have been, and always will be a "melting pot" in this country. It is one of the single best things that has made this country great, that we can have multiple cultures existing peacefully together. It has undeniably made us a great nation. At least, we were at one time.

How about a reality check folks. Unless you're a descendant from the native American Indians, we are all descended from immigrants. We slaughtered the real Americans when we stole this land from not only them, but the Mexicans as well. Learn history.

First and foremost, study the religion of Islam. Muslims are arguably the most devout God worshipping people on the face of the earth. Jews may think they have that market cornered, but they are merely a close second, for no group as a whole is as religious as Muslims. They are on their knees praying more times in a day than anyone, all the while overly pious Americans sit on their fat asses and worship the almighty tube and the dollar.

What is it folks? Is it because they call their God Allah, is that what scares you so much? If that's the case, you must have issues with those that say Jesus was God, or those that use YHWH, YHVH (Yahweh) or JHVH (Jehova.) Most of American idiots think His name is "God," and that shows their true ignorance. God is a "title," period. Argue all you want, but when you call on "God" you may as well be praying to Tupperware.

Get your facts straight if you're going to buy into the hate crimes.

We as a people claim to despise those that lump entire races together as evil, and yet most of you have been suckered right into the ruse. Those with all the money and power in this world are indeed the true evil. They are responsible for all the wars, and for fomenting division among nations. They are the ones that need to keep the people in control through fear. They want you to be scared, because they need you to be scared. They understand that unless there is an enemy to be feared, they lose much of their power and control over you. When you buy into the hate that they propagate, you buy into their evil plan for control of us all.

And just how religious can you be when you openly hate someone else, for no reason whatsoever, other than because some dumb-ass, bought-and-paid for politician, or TV pundit told you so? How much do you personally know about Muslims or the religion of Islam? From the discourse that has arisen in America, apparently nothing!

You are being coerced into hate crimes, and most people ignorantly go right along and comply with the lie. We claim it's "anti-Semitic" to bash Jews, yet we arrogantly think we have the free right to unload our personal ignorance and hate onto Muslims, all because of their religion. How patently absurd and morally disgraceful. ... (Read more)

 

What is the Truth About HAARP?
Is it a Defensive Shield as Alleged, an Offensive Weapon, or Both?
NewsFocus.org, by Tim Watts - 031511

A lot has been said about the giant HAARP array in Gakona, Alaska. Begun in 1990 and completed in 2007, HAARP stands for High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program. Their stated purpose, from the website FAQ... "The goal of this program is to further advance our knowledge of the physical and electrical properties of the Earth's ionosphere which can affect our military and civilian communication and navigation systems."

They also state, "The fundamental goal of research conducted at HAARP is knowledge; to explore and to understand natural phenomena occurring in the Earth's ionosphere and near-space environment. Information derived from this research will have major value in the design of future communication and navigation systems for both military and civilian use."

Pentagon Preparing for US Economic Civil Unrest
Military Plans Drawn Up to Thwart Civilian Uprisings Over Economic Collapse
NewsFocus.org - Op/Ed by Tim Watts - 011011

Lest anyone think the government isn't doing everything they possibly can about the current economic crisis, the US is currently in the midst of planning and drills for a possible downturn in the economic crisis. The problem for many is, it's the Pentagon and the military doing the planning. The US is currently running military exercises and domestic drills... to battle upset Americans, in the event the economy should worsen. A Pentagon plan named "Operation Quest" is currently underway which deals with using military force to control the population, in the event of a total economic collapse. The Pentagon is reportedly preparing for a variety of scenarios, which includes "large scale economic breakdown," and "domestic order amid civil unrest." Essentially, preparing for a police state against the people who lost it all.

Nothing at all about combating the ultra-wealthy Wall Street fat-cats and bankers, or the preceding piss-poor government regime that allowed this all to happen in the first place. So long as the obscenely rich and the corporate elite get to maintain their "government insured" opulence, that appears to be all that our in-the-pocket government appears to care about. They will fight to protect the ultra-wealthy elite, their corporate holdings, Wall Street, the banks and their sundry financial institutions, but not us. It's us they're preparing to stand against, not the rich. Our Pentagon is standing for those who engineered and profited from this economic holocaust. The internment camps are for us.

Americans may find it in their best interest to make their own plans, in the event our former government "of the people" decides to go off on "we the people," right after they've personally helped bankrupt us and ruin our economy.

This could very well turn out to be robbery and a mugging. ... (Read More)

U.S. Military Prepares For Economic Collapse

Marines Train in Mock City as Big as San Diego
AP | Yahoo News - 012511

NewsFocus: You have to question the motive when our government invests this much of our taxpayer money to train our soldiers to fight in city settings. This has nothing to do with urban warfare per se, as much as it has to do with an urban assault, preparing to use force for civilian control. We've fought wars in cities for decades now. (See WWII) Our military really doesn't need the further expertise, not with all of their history in urban warfare, so for many, this training setup is entirely suspicious. Coupled with the already vast number of nationwide FEMA internment camps, this is indeed very, very disturbing. Whatever happened to Posse Comitatus? Oh yeah, the Patriot Act and the Military Commissions Act... all that stuff that is supposed to "defend our freedom." Ever read either of those heinous "terror" acts? You should. You wouldn't like what our Congress allowed, without their ever reading this voluminous Constitution killing bill.

Obama Continues 9/11 State of Emergency Order, 15 Years After
NewsFocus, by Tim Watts - 090916

For the 15th year in a row, a US president has extended the State of Emergency (SOE) in this country. This time he did it 11 days early. The order continues the post-9/11 emergency, which extends the secret emergency powers that were grabbed by the government and keeps a special regiment of US National Guard soldiers in active duty, and the president with the power to dismiss any military official the rank of 1-star general and under. This amounts to a serious power grab. (Read the order)

Like you, we don’t all think the same, feel the same, love, learn, live or even die the same.

But there’s one thing most of us agree on: We don’t want cops to be executed at a peaceful protest. We also don’t want cops to kill us without fear that they will ever face a jury, much less go to jail, even as the world watches our death on a homemade video recording. ... (Read more)

These Emails Show How Upset NSA Spies Were with the 'Enemy of the State' Film
BusinessInsider.com, by Paul Szoldra, Tech Insider - 012116

Employees at the secretive National Security Agency were not too happy about the 1998 blockbuster film "Enemy of the State," which starred Will Smith.

That shouldn't come as a surprise — the spy agency was portrayed as the villain — but now BuzzFeed News has obtained internal emails that prove it.

"I saw a preview for the new movie 'Enemy of the State' and to my surprise found out that NSA were the 'bad guys' in it," one NSA employee wrote in a question to the agency's public-affairs team.

Directed by Tony Scott, the film was highly critical of the NSA. The plot began with agency operatives killing a congressman who was opposed to a surveillance bill — an action that was caught on tape — setting off a cat-and-mouse game between attorney Robert Dean (played by Smith) and agents trying to pursue him. ...

New Book Reveals DARPA is Implanting Computer Chips in Soldiers’ Brains
New Technology Brings "Operation Treadstone" Into Reality
Fusion.net, by Kristen Brown - 092715

For decades, DARPA, the secretive research arm of the Department of Defense, has dreamed of turning soldiers into cyborgs. And now it’s finally happening. The agency has funded projects that involve implanting chips into soldiers’ brains that they hope will enhance performance on the battlefield and repair traumatized brains once the fog of war has lifted. ... (Read More)

NewsFocus: DARPA is one of the most heinous organizations on the face of the earth. Their slogan should be, "Always looking for new ways to kill people." If you honestly think this technology won't be abused by the gatekeepers of the military industrial complex, you might also be interested in some Florida swampland. It is the height of unbridled naiveté to think that the "powers that shouldn't be" wouldn't stoop to such further new lows. That's what they do best, dispelling morality for their own orchestrated, perverse causality.

This is literally "The Bourne Conspiracy" coming to life right before us. It's Operation Treadstone, right off the silver-screen. Knowing the unscrupulous, immoral character of those behind the funding for these dark projects doesn't give one a good sense of confidence that this won't become another nightmare to haunt an increasingly oppressed post-9/11 society.

Everything is Fake: Top 40 Pieces of Fakery in Our World (Part 1)
The Freedom Articles , by Makia Freeman

Everything is fake in our society today – or at least a great many things are. Our world is filled with an extraordinary amount of lies, deception, disinformation, misinformation, fakery, fraud, facades, mirages, propaganda and brainwashing. The good thing though is that once you awaken to the deception, you can use it as a tool for raising your consciousness. The idea that virtually everything is fake can be empowering rather than depressing. Sure, we’ve all felt overwhelmed, sad, angry and impotent at times when we’ve seen just how easily our (mis)leaders can fool the masses with sophistry and empty rhetoric, but they’ve all been placed there to challenge us to wake up more quickly and fully, and reclaim our world.

Private Prison Firms Buy Access to Public Officials at Lavish Industry Conferences
By Mike Ludwig, Truthout

The prison industry in the United States has grown so large that there are no less than seven professional associations for people who work at prisons and jails. The industry conferences held by these associations provide a perfect venue for private corrections companies to influence government officials with little public oversight, according to a recent report by the watchdog group In The Public Interest (ITPI).

The biggest names in the prison business spend millions of dollars sponsoring these conferences and wooing prison officials with free massages, awards ceremonies, luxury dinner cruises and plenty of corporate schwag. Over the past week, one of the most prominent associations, the American Correctional Association (ACA), held its summer conference in Indianapolis, where major sponsors included private prison companies Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), GEO Group and food services giant Aramark. ...

Are DHS 'Front' Companies Capturing Your Kids Irises and Fingerprints?

The iCAM 7100 iris cameras, made by ColorID, take a high-definition photo of the user's iris and then identify 220-plus unique points. It then generates a number, which is associated with that individual meal plan holder's iris.

Mysterious Low-Flying Plane Over Twin Cities Raises Questions of Government Surveillance
Small Aircraft Circled Downtown Mpls, Plus Two Shopping Malls for Hours

Aviation buff John Zimmerman was at a weekly gathering of neighbors Friday night when he noticed something peculiar: a small plane circling a route overhead that didn’t make sense to him.

It was dark, so a sightseeing flight didn’t make sense, and when Zimmerman pulled up more information on an aviation phone app he routinely checks, he had immediate concerns.

The plane’s flight path, recorded by the website flightradar24.com, would eventually show that it circled downtown Minneapolis, the Mall of America and Southdale Center at low altitude for hours starting at 10:30 p.m., slipping off radar just after 3 a.m. ... (Read more)

The person or persons behind the litany of mysterious deaths of bankers worldwide in the last two years must have their motives, but I doubt they are philanthropic.

Invisibility Cloaks Now Shield People from Sight
Visible wavelength metamaterials get active
EE Times, by R. Colin Johnson - 1/31/2015 04:27 PM EST


PORTLAND, Ore. -- Invisibility cloaks began in the microwave regime using arrays of metamaterials to bend light around an object, thereby rendering it invisible to microwaves. While useful for hiding missiles and the like from radar, no one -- until now -- has successfully made one work like Harry Potter's to cloak people in the visible spectrum of light.

Now one lab, proving the concept with microwaves, has used an inexpensive 3D printer to make their cloak, which it claims can be extended to the visible spectrum. And a second lab, reporting on the same day, has used ordinary lens to achieve a cloaking effect at visible wavelengths. ... (Read more)

Homeland Security Blunder Opened Door to Cybersecurity Attacks on Power, Water Systems
AllGov.com - 010515

Sometimes even when it’s trying to do the right thing, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) steps on a rake. A recent miscue by the department could make it easier for someone to bring down the nation’s power grid.

A Freedom of Information Act request was filed with DHS for documents on Operation Aurora, which was a cyber-attack on Google. The department responded with 800 pages of documents, according to Patrick Tucker at Defense One. However the documents weren’t about Operation Aurora, but were instead on the Aurora Project, which in 2007 demonstrated how easy it would be to disable the nation’s electric and water supply grids. ...

NewsFocus: Oh, but how is this possible? DHS is supposed to be the almighty law enforcement "authority," the supposed link that we were missing to prevent 9/11... and yet here they are, making this nation more unsafe. That is criminal. Someone needs to lose their job over this, BUT... just like on 9/11 when your government failed you miserably... when they failed all of us pathetically... NO ONE ever lost their rank or their job. No one!

 

Police in the US Kill Citizens at Over 70 Times the Rate of Other First-World Nations
TheFreeThoughtProject.com, By Matt Agorist on January 8, 2015

In case you’ve been under a rock lately, it is becoming quite clear that police in the US can and will kill people, even unarmed people, even on video, and do so with impunity.

The tallying methods, or rather lack thereof, used by both the FBI and individual police departments to count the amount of people killed by police, have been shown to be staggeringly inaccurate. 

However, this inability of the government to count the number of people it kills, has been met with multiple alternative means of calculating just how deadly the state actually is.

One of these citizen run databases, is the website www.killedbypolice.com. The site is basically a spreadsheet that lists every person killed by cops in the years 2013 and 2014. In addition to naming those killed, it also provides a link to media reports for each of the killings, age, sex and race if available.

The tally for 2014? 1,100 people killed by those sworn to protect. That is an average of three people a day. ... (Read more)

According to the 2014 Legatum Prosperity Index released in November, in the measure of personal freedom, the United States has fallen from 9th place in 2010 to 21st worldwide.

FBI: Violent U.S. Crime Drops Again, Reaches 1970s Level
Reuters, By Ian Simpson - Mon Nov 10, 2014 2:43pm EST

(Reuters) - U.S. violent crimes including murders fell 4.4 percent in 2013 to their lowest number since the 1970s, continuing a decades-long downturn, the FBI said on Monday.

The law enforcement agency's annual Crime in the United States report showed the country had an estimated 1.16 million violent crimes last year, the lowest number since 1.09 million were recorded in 1978.

All types of violent crimes were lower, with murder and non-negligent manslaughter off 4.4 percent to 14,196, the lowest figure since 1968. Rape was down 6.3 percent and robbery fell 2.8 percent, the Federal Bureau of Investigation data showed. ... (Read more)

NewsFocus: Like 've been saying... violent crime has been dropping for 50 years in this country. So, why the militarization of US police from the 1990's onward, if violent crime has been dropping in this country for decades now? A police state has been enacted at great expense, while crime was dropping in the US for half a century. Gee, how hard is that to figure out?

Also, what about all those nasty, violent guns that are being purchased? The gun naysayers try to make people think crime goes up when gun sales go up, but if they'd just take the time to do the research, they see that is entirely false and not true.

 

Johns Hopkins Scientist Reveals Shocking Report on Flu Vaccines
Posted on

A Johns Hopkins scientist has issued a blistering report on influenza vaccines in the British Medical Journal (BMJ). Peter Doshi, Ph.D., charges that although the vaccines are being pushed on the public in unprecedented numbers, they are less effective and cause more side effects than alleged by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Further, says Doshi, the studies that underlie the CDC’s policy of encouraging most people to get a yearly flu shot are often low quality studies that do not substantiate the official claims. ...

For most people, says Dr. Blaylock, flu vaccines don’t prevent the flu but actually increase the odds of getting it. The mercury contained in vaccines is such a strong immune depressant that a flu shot suppresses immunity for several weeks. “This makes people highly susceptible to catching the flu,” he says. “They may even think the vaccine gave them the flu, but that’s not true — it depressed their immune system and then they caught the flu.”

Mercury over-stimulates the brain for several years, says Dr. Blaylock, and that activation is the cause of Alzheimer’s and other degenerative diseases. One study found that those who get the flu vaccine for three to five years increase their risk of Alzheimer’s disease 10-fold. ... (Read more)

NewsFocus: People who are immune compromised should not  receive these vaccines. People getting the shots can actually give the virus to those not getting the shot. This flu season, they missed tragically. The vaccines that are out do not cover the viruses for this winter. This year, the state of Minnesota is the worst affected, by far.

 

The Prison State of America
TruthDig.com, by Chris Hedges - Dec 28, 2014

Prisons employ and exploit the ideal worker. Prisoners do not receive benefits or pensions. They are not paid overtime. They are forbidden to organize and strike. They must show up on time. They are not paid for sick days or granted vacations. They cannot formally complain about working conditions or safety hazards. If they are disobedient, or attempt to protest their pitiful wages, they lose their jobs and can be sent to isolation cells. The roughly 1 million prisoners who work for corporations and government industries in the American prison system are models for what the corporate state expects us all to become. And corporations have no intention of permitting prison reforms that would reduce the size of their bonded workforce. In fact, they are seeking to replicate these conditions throughout the society.

States, in the name of austerity, have stopped providing prisoners with essential items including shoes, extra blankets and even toilet paper, while starting to charge them for electricity and room and board. Most prisoners and the families that struggle to support them are chronically short of money. Prisons are company towns. Scrip, rather than money, was once paid to coal miners, and it could be used only at the company store. Prisoners are in a similar condition. When they go broke—and being broke is a frequent occurrence in prison—prisoners must take out prison loans to pay for medications, legal and medical fees and basic commissary items such as soap and deodorant. Debt peonage inside prison is as prevalent as it is outside prison. ... (Read more)

Presidents Are Gods
WarIsACrime.org, by davidswanson - 010515

A former Governor of Virginia is expected to be sentenced to a long stay in prison. The same fate has befallen governors in states across the United States, including in nearby Maryland, Tennessee, and West Virginia. A former governor of Illinois is in prison. Governors have been convicted of corruption in Rhode Island, Louisiana, Oklahoma, North Dakota, Connecticut, and (in a trumped-up partisan scam) in Alabama. The statewide trauma suffered by the people of states that have locked up their governors has been . . . well, nonexistent and unimaginable.

Locking U.S. presidents up for their crimes is a different story. Former President Richard Nixon's understanding that whatever a president does is legal has not been challenged since he made that comment. The Washington Post -- not exactly a Nixon supporter -- has the same understanding now. The Post recently justified the latest proposal to re-ban torture by explaining that even though torture was already banned, President George W. Bush tortured and therefore had found a legal way around the law. In other words, because he hasn't been prosecuted, what he did was legal.

The New York Times, which urged prosecuting former President George W. Bush for torture six years ago, recently wrote ... (Read more)

 

Illinois Just Made it a Felony for its Citizens to Record the Police - and the Media is Silent

Only a government that lives like cockroaches in the darkness would pass a law criminalizing the act of turning on the light.

linois — In March of this year the Illinois Supreme Court struck down the state’s eavesdropping law, and rightfully so, as it was touted as the most unconstitutional law of its kind in the country.

But Illinois, being the the corrupt and violent police state that it is, couldn’t let their police and other government officials be held accountable by its citizens. ... (Read more)

An ‘Entertaining’ Lesson on How Cops Can ‘Win the Media’ After They Kill
Global Research, by Jim Naureckas - 120814

The St. Louis County and Municipal Police Academy held a special class on October 24 for “upper-echelon law enforcement professionals.” The subject:

"OFFICER-INVOLVED SHOOTING — YOU CAN WIN WITH THE MEDIA"

The class, taught by PR agent Rick Rosenthal, focused on such topicsRead more as “Managing the Media When Things Get Ugly (Think Ferguson).” A flyer promoting the class promised, “In addition to the Ferguson case study, this fast-paced class is jam-packed with the essential strategies and tactics, skills and techniques that will help you WIN WITH THE MEDIA!”

Sound boring? Not at all! “The training is also highly entertaining,” the flyer emphasized. “You will learn a lot, and you’ll have fun doing it!”

That does sound like fun–learning how to best manipulate the media after your colleagues have killed a human being? ... (Read more)

NewsFocus: This is soooooo obviously wrong... on all levels of human decency... and this truly highlights the disconnect that today's law enforcement has adopted toward the citizens it is paid to protect; purposefully using the media... to fool you.

The Militarization of U.S. Police: Finally Dragged Into the Light by the Horrors of Ferguson
FirstLook.org, by

The intensive militarization of America’s police forces is a serious menace about which a small number of people have been loudly warning for years, with little attention or traction. In a 2007 paper on “the blurring distinctions between the police and military institutions and between war and law enforcement,” the criminal justice professor Peter Kraska defined “police militarization” as “the process whereby civilian police increasingly draw from, and pattern themselves around, the tenets of militarism and the military model.”

The harrowing events of the last week in Ferguson, Missouri – the fatal police shooting of an unarmed African-American teenager, Mike Brown, and the blatantly excessive and thuggish response to ensuing community protests from a police force that resembles an occupying army ... (Read more)

Militarized Police and the Threat to Democracy
HuffingtonPost.com, by Dennis J. Kucinich - 081814

As a former big city mayor of a racially diverse city, Cleveland, Ohio, I can understand the cross currents sweeping through Ferguson, Missouri.

We are at a moment of national crisis in the way our domestic law enforcement is being conducted. The killing of an unarmed civilian by a law enforcement officer is, sadly, not unique. But the police response to the protests has provided a powerful cautionary moment for America. The militarization of local police has led to the arrival today in Ferguson of the actual military, the National Guard. ... (Read more)

US Tragedy: Americans Killed by Cops Now Outnumber US Soldiers Killed in Iraq War     
500 innocent Americans are murdered by police every year - 5,000 since 9/11, equal to US soldiers lost in Iraq
TheFreeThoughtProject.com - 070714

The increase in police brutality in this country is a frightening reality. In the last decade alone the number of  people murdered by police has reached 5,000. The number of soldiers killed since the inception of the Iraq war, 4489.

What went wrong? In the 19070’s SWAT teams were estimated to be used just a few hundred times per year, now we are looking at, conservatively, over 40,000 military style “knock and announce” police raids a year, with some saying that number is twice as high at 80,000 per year.

Either number is unwarranted and very disturbing in the US.

The police presence in this country is being turned into a military with a clearly defined enemy, anyone who questions the establishment.

If we look at the most recent numbers of non-military US citizens killed by terrorism worldwide, that number is 17. You have a better chance of being killed by a bee sting, or a home repair accident than you do a terrorist. And you are 29 times more likely to be murdered by a cop than a terrorist! ... [more]

Obama Allows Great Lakes Water to be Sold to China as Half the U.S. Faces Extreme Water Crisis
BlackListedNews.com, by Michael Snyder - 121713

What in the world is Barack Obama thinking? At a time when the United States is facing the greatest water crisis that it has ever known, Obama is allowing water from the Great Lakes to be drained, bottled and shipped to China and other countries around the globe.

Right now, the Great Lakes hold approximately 21 percent of the total supply of fresh water in the entire world. Considering the fact that global water supplies are becoming extremely tight, that is an invaluable resource. One recent UN report projected that two-thirds of the people in the world will be dealing with “water stress” and 1.8 billion people will be facing “absolute water scarcity” by the year 2025. So why are we allowing foreign corporations such as Nestle to make millions upon millions of dollars pumping water out of the Great Lakes and selling it overseas? Considering the massive worldwide water crisis that we know is coming in the years ahead, shouldn’t we be doing everything that we can to protect this precious natural resource? [Read more]

 

Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph. -Haile Selassie

Nine years have passed since five people were killed and 17 sickened by anthrax spores mailed to lawmakers and news outlets, and it's been nine months since the FBI closed its investigation into those attacks.

But new information about the anthrax, the investigation and the suspect still continue to emerge.

On Nov. 29, the University of California's Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation hosted a seminar on the Amerithrax investigation. Experts have spent years doubting that Fort Detrick scientist Bruce Ivins committed the crime, as the FBI alleges, but they have never gathered to share their knowledge and theories until Monday's meeting at the university's Washington Center. ...

Microbiologist: Anthrax Numbers Don't Add Up
Impossible For Ivins To Grow That Many Spores In Short Amount of Time

ProPublica.org, by Gary Matsumoto - 042310

Other biodefense scientists who didn't work with Ivins have done the same calculations and reached the exact same conclusion as Dr. Heine

A microbiologist who supervised the work of accused anthrax killer Bruce E. Ivins explained to a National Academy of Sciences panel Thursday why the arithmetic of growing anthrax didn't add up to Ivins' mailing deadly spores in fall 2001.

"Impossible," said Dr. Henry S. Heine of a scenario in which Ivins, another civilian microbiologist working for the Army, allegedly prepared the anthrax spores at an Army lab at Fort Detrick. Heine told the 16-member panel that Ivins would have had to grow as many as 10 trillion spores, an astronomical amount that couldn't have gone unnoticed by his colleagues. ... (Read more)

WASHINGTON — A former Army microbiologist who worked for years with Bruce E. Ivins, whom the F.B.I. has blamed for the anthrax letter attacks that killed five people in 2001, told a National Academy of Sciences panel on Thursday that he believed it was impossible that the deadly spores had been produced undetected in Dr. Ivins’s laboratory, as the F.B.I. asserts.

Asked by reporters after his testimony whether he believed that there was any chance that Dr. Ivins, who committed suicide in 2008, had carried out the attacks, the microbiologist, Henry S. Heine, replied, “Absolutely not.” At the Army’s biodefense laboratory in Maryland, where Dr. Ivins and Dr. Heine worked, he said, “among the senior scientists, no one believes it.”
