It is the duty of the Patriot to protect his country from his government. – Thomas Paine

George Washington’s Prayer at Valley Forge

War, War, War

Why? Our war machine generates such “spectacular profits that many people around the world” are convinced America’s “rich and powerful must be deliberately causing catastrophes so that they can exploit them,” warns Naomi Klein in “Shock Doctrine.” No wonder the GOP takes military spending, like tax cuts for the rich, off-the-table: The war industry is a major political donor. – Paul Farrell

Unlike Vietnam, today you hear very little news about America’s wars.  Again why?  Mat Taibbi correctly points out, “These are for profit companies and there’s no money in doing the right thing.”  So, as long as the MSM keeps it off the nightly news the people are content with America’s sociopathic spree of senseless destruction and killing of innocents.  Yet they’re captivated by sensationalized coverage when a deranged Mother kills her baby.  It’s a sad state when an isolated incident is “sold” as infotainment that trumps real news of wholesale murder and mayhem.  According to Chris Hedges; “News As Entertainment has trumped actual journalism.”  Wake up America!  Throw in the food stamps and this is the modern version of Bread and Circuses.  Our sophistication makes us either the most ignorant or hypocritical people on earth.

The media and the government, both are hijacked by big corporations and through their two identical twins they provide us with the illusion of democracy.  As Chomsky well-put, the media is in the business of “manufacturing consent” – Edip Yuksel

A popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps, both. – James Madison

Osama bin Laden’s stated intent was to embroil the US in Middle Eastern wars and to destroy our financial well being.

The USA-Inc has a magic word to hypnotize us: “Terrorists!” So that our tax dollars could be transferred to war profiteers, the military industrial complex and its allies!  – Edip Yuksel

The U.S. is entrenched in three illegal and immoral wars in the name of security.  In the latest; Libya we’re supposedly protecting the people, which of course is a lie.  First, we’ve thrown in with a group of militants with terrorist ties.  And the civilians we’re protecting; nearly 1,000 have been killed and according to UN High Commissioner for Refugees 686,422 had fled Libya as of May 4, mostly for Egypt and Tunisia.

The cost of President Obama’s unconstitutional attack on Libya has been $716 million as of June 3.  According to the LA Times Obama’s unauthorized war on Libya costs $9,421,000 a day:

“The executive has no right, in any case, to decide the question, whether there is or is not cause for declaring war.” – James Madison

It’s estimated the U.S. government has spent over 379 billion dollars on the war in Afghanistan and over 775 billion dollars on the war in Iraq (see video below for more accurate and higher $ amounts).  Worse than the raw numbers, none of this is paid for.  It’s all been borrowed from the one group who always wins when there’s war, the bankers.
 
6,114 American lives have been cut short and 44,596 have been wounded in action; many severely (http://www.defense.gov/news/casualty.pdf).  600,000 to one million in Iraq alone will not see tomorrow.

Here is a great take on our current military entanglements which is probably more accurate re: cost. via World Revolution News.

Defense accounts for 58% of discretionary spending.

Defense is 19% of the total budget and increasing, (this does not include interest).
Military expenditures have more than doubled since 9-11-2001.
Defense; we spend as much as the rest of the world combined and borrow the money to do so.  Debt-funded wars – say, in Afghanistan and Iraq – are easier to defend than pay-as-you-go wars that voters must finance up front with taxes.   See: War, Debt and Democracy

And for what?

Fact is, deaths attributable to terrorism are lower year on year than those caused by allergic reactions to peanuts.  As subsidies to the wealthiest Americans explodes upwards the Military Industrial Complex is cashing in on an ever increasing number of foreign interventions (6 to 8 depending on who’s counting) while the wealth of Americas working and middle class is in dramatic decline.  And when it comes to budget cuts; the three wars and the 777 to 1000 + US military bases (even the Pentagon won’t say for sure; is it any wonder why billions go missing?) barely get a cursory review.     See: WAR; 58% Of Discretionary Spending Is Off Limits – 1% Robs The 99%

Would not the trillions wasted on this nonsense have gone a long way toward rebuilding our infrastructure and retraining Americans for the 21st century, rather than killing those still stuck in the 20th?  Instead of strengthening our homeland for all Americans, we engage in foreign interventions which makes us less secure while siphoning off hundreds of $billions to Independent Contractors, Weapons Manufacturers and Banksters; the financiers of destruction and misery.

While millions of American people are jobless, millions are losing their homes, and millions of American children suffer from hunger and malnutrition, we are spending about to a trillion dollars for the business of destruction and creating more enemies so that the business of destruction will become even more needed and lucrative. While the so-called “elected officials” in our Federal and state governments are seriously debating of cutting vital social programs such as education and health care, they never talk about cutting the mushrooming military budget -Edip Yuksel

 

From a deep watery grave, it would seem Osama has us right where he wanted us!

 

Before any domestic austerity measures (cuts in public services and promised benefits) are imposed on the American people we must demand the draw down of troops and a timely end to these senseless and costly wars.  We must also reaffirm the constitutional process in waging war and put in check, the presidents implied Imperial Powers.

DEBT: Charge It Please

 
According to the National Inflation Association, when you factor in the unfunded liabilities of the U.S. government, total federal debt obligations now come to a grand total of 76 trillion dollars.  Other sources put the figure over $ 100 Trillion.

The facsimile of U.S. “growth” now depends entirely on Central State manipulation and stimulus of risk trades and financial slight-of-hand… we’re spending/injecting $7 (of borrowed money) to create $1 of “growth” in GDP. – charles hugh smith

It’s The DEBT Stupid!

American military spending nearly outweighs the rest of the planet combined.  Our interventions are not making us safer and costs are unsustainable.  Domestically we face serious structural challenges, a crumbling infrastructure and unprecedented social issues.  At the very top of our most important financial, corporate and governmental institutions the Rule of Law has been suspended in an orgy of fraud and corruption.  Our leadership is morally bankrupt and borrowing $1.5 Trillion + a year to continue down the same path is the definition of insanity.

In his latest piece Jim Quin at  TheBurningPlatform.com was on a tear in a piece called KEYNESIAN SOLUTIONS – AFTER TOTAL FAILURE – TRY, TRY AGAIN

I’d like to remind the Harvard educated Keynesian economists that Federal government spending is currently chiming in at $3.8 trillion per year. Federal spending was $2.7 trillion in 2007 and $3.0 trillion in 2008.  Keynesians believe government spending fills the gap when private companies are contracting. Obama has taken Keynesianism to a new level.  Federal spending will total $10.8 trillion in Obama’s 1st three years, versus $8.4 trillion in the previous three years. Even a Harvard economist can figure out this is a 29% increase in Federal spending.  What has it accomplished?  We are back in recession, unemployment is rising, forty six million Americans are on food stamps, food and energy prices are soaring, and the middle class is being annihilated.

As for the avoidance of a 2nd great depression:

The 2nd Great Depression was not avoided, it was delayed… The banks at fault could have been liquidated in an orderly bankruptcy with stockholders and bondholders accepting the consequences of their foolishness. Unemployment would have soared to 12%, GDP would have collapsed, and the stock market would have fallen to 5,000.  The bad debt would have been flushed from the system.  Instead our Wall Street beholden leaders chose to save their banker friends, cover-up the bad debt, shift private debt to taxpayer debt, print trillions of new dollars in an effort to inflate away the debt…  These strokes of genius have failed miserably.  Bernanke, Paulson, Geithner and Obama have set in motion a series of events that will ultimately lead to a catastrophic currency collapse.  Obama declared his stimulus ($862 billion) would create 3.5 million jobs, later changed to “create or save”.  There were 144 million Americans employed in January 2009. Today, there are 139 million Americans employed… We have entered the 2nd phase of the Greater Depression and there are no monetary or fiscal bullets left in the gun…  – KEYNESIAN SOLUTIONS – AFTER TOTAL FAILURE – TRY, TRY AGAIN


As the Federal governments Keynesian experiment pushes small and medium sized businesses aside, the best local economy in the U.S. is, by far, the DC metropolitan area.  Average incomes in the region top $150,000, more than triple the national average.   Since 9/11  public borrowing and spending has skyrocketed to the delight of defense/homeland security contractors and other firms providing goods and services to the government.  While the real economy economy is facing a crisis of high unemployment, stagnant wages and an implosion of private sector manufacturers, the Capitol is booming.

The latest “false flag” debt ceiling crisis was a total obfuscation.   It’s time for the PEOPLE to WAKE UP! The President’s scare tactic; threatening your SS checks may not go out, was a ruse to get you to except cuts.  He wants to break the social contract between the government and you so the richest Americans can maintain their frivolities while you choose between food and healthcare.  See: Cut Social Security: TWO PARTY OLIGARCHY VS THE PEOPLE

Yevs Smith says “The finance sector used extortion against the American people in 2007-09 and are doing it again now.”   Make no mistake this is class warfare disguised as equal sacrifice.  The fact is; both sides agree on massive cuts to social programs.  The elite, whose annual fortunes have risen by $1.5 Trillion (the size of the deficit; see below), at your expense, over the last 30 years are being asked to make token sacrifices while the working class and retirees will see huge cuts in living standards.  When the President asks you to urge your representatives to make the needed cuts, he is asking you to support legislation that lowers your standard of living while maintaining unequal benefits for the ultra wealthy.   See: Debt Crisis Ruse & PEACOCK SYNDROME

It’s said the Presidents post labor day speech will propose cuts exceeding the ‘debt ceiling’ deal of $1.5 trillion.  The ‘cuts’ however, are in the future as he will recommend new spending programs ‘for now’.   And true to the ways of Washington, the cuts are actually a reduction of proposed increases.  Regardless, the agenda is set which entails an end run around the Constitution.  Further, in a now all to familiar strategy, the President has abdicated his leadership responsibility, allowing lawmakers to form a ‘super congress’ (cat food commission) that effectively cuts “We The People” out of the process.   As such; the people be damned and with no accountability, the two party oligarchy is  free to make “their brand” of sausage, behind closed doors.  This may be the final death knell to “OUR CONSTITUTIONAL DEMOCRATIC PROCESS”.   See: Debt Ceiling Side Show Creates “CATFOOD COMMISSION”

Leave no authority existing not responsible to the people. – Thomas Jefferson

On the Presidents upcoming speech, again Jim Quin TheBurningPlatform.com

Barack Obama will stand in front of the American people and lie.  He is a born again cost cutter, who will propose new spending.  As anyone with a calculator can figure out, the two guaranteed proposals from his upcoming speech will increase spending by $165 billion in 2012.  If you go back to the handy dandy chart from the CBO showing the “horrific spending cuts” from the recent debt ceiling deal you will see  these “cuts” total $122 billion between 2012 and 2014.  Barack will wipe out all of the supposed savings through mid 2015 with his new Keynesian plan.  But don’t worry.  His plan will have huge spending cuts in 2017 after his hoped for 2nd term is finished.  Keynesians always promise to cut spending once their current emergency ends.   

IT IS TIME TO SAY NO!!!

To reestablish our Constitutional Democracy and reinstate free markets we must rally every citizen to take personal action.  Civil disobedience and or withdrawing our support from the criminal regime are our weapons.

XX century tactics of mass loitering have been proven useless over and over again.  If you want to change something, there is no need to join a crowd.  Quite the opposite: leave the crowd; disconnect from the idiots (even the best-meaning of them); make a change in your life.  – Mustafa Cohen August 25, 2011 at 2:50 pm

“You assist an evil system most effectively by obeying its orders and decrees. An evil system never deserves such allegiance. Allegiance to it means partaking of the evil.  A good person will resist an evil system with his or her whole soul. – Mahatma Gandhi

 

Anger and violence waged against each other or perceived culprits  gives these corrupt sociopaths an excuse to further curtail our rights, crack down and diminish our hopes to stand together and demand the return of our Constitutional Democracy and the Rule of Law for all American’s.  Do not give them the excuse.

As Alexis de Tocqueville said, “In a revolution, as in a novel, the most difficult part to invent is the end.”  JFK was more terse in stating, “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable.”

Suicial

In 1854 a small village newspaperman, Colonel Charles V. De Land wrote; “This is not a question of party loyalty, but a great fundamental principle of freedom, justice and humanity, a tenet of truth, law and legal right which is sought to be tampered with, and down-trod.”  From these simple words a revolution of the conscience ensued and after a tragic tumult freedom spread.  The words ring true to our patriotic duty today.

“The issue today is the same as it has been throughout all history, whether man shall be allowed to govern himself or be ruled by a small elite.” – Thomas Jefferson

As Thomas Paine  said, “It is the duty of the Patriot to protect his country from his government.”  Our leaders have failed to uphold the Constitution.  They have broken their social contract and thus, have lost the consent of the governed.  To protect our liberty and restore the republic, every Patriot must PHYSICALLY TAKE ACTION.

    The plain truth.
    If one dont understand this clipp, its hopeless. The similaritys are like, the wars are like, the economy is like, the propaganda and lies are like, even the sice is like.
    And the eventual consequencess are like.

    “Don’t tread on Me” has a loyal following who understand the issue of state power and its threat to freedom. Others who are curious about the issues may not be as aware or understand the states insidious nature. The long drawn out process is to inform the people of the need AND THEIR RIGHT to withdraw their support and demand the restoration of our legal Constitution. Unfortunately, its probably naive to think we still may have a chance before it breaks down into total chaos but it is the Patriot’s duty to try.
