A reading of the FEC’s website puts into question the legality of Jesse Lee’s job as ‘Terminator’ for the White House

America 20xy

5/29/11

By Andrew Steele

Obama’s Internet campaign troll– whose appointment and job description as one of providing “aggressive defense of the president and his policies” was reported last week– is off and running, and already things are rocky.

The Twitter account opened by Jesse Lee—which features an image of a Terminator robot as its first post, (apparently how Jesse Lee thinks of himself and his role)– already has a number of followers excitedly ready to do battle in the blogosphere.

“Still trying to figure out why a government employee would use the symbol of tyrannical overloads and murderers as his first post” twittered one person, commenting on the Terminator picture.

“Was a stint at Pravda a prerequisite for this job? If it doesn’t work out, Castro may be hiring” wrote another.

It’s not likely that these people, who are mostly right leaning, will get a response. Fox News has reported that the focus of Jesse Lee’s Terminator activities is going to be left-of-center blogs, which strategically makes sense because President Obama has little chance of converting rightwing blog readers and desperately needs to reignite the rabid 2008 “Hopeium” high he squandered after brazenly going back on the important promises he made to his base regarding no more war mongering, restoring civil liberties, and closing Gitmo.

Though the President of course has the right to campaign, Jesse Lee’s position is one working for the White House, not the DNC, as verified by the Washington Post’s “Who Runs Government?” webpage, which lists his employer as White House Communications Director, Daniel Pfeiffer.

This means that taxpayer money is being used to pay for his activities, which are directed at reelecting the President. Though I’m not a lawyer and can’t vouch for every single legal loophole the President might have found and slithered through, I can say that the Federal Election Commission’s website states in bold, underlined letters: Money for public funding of presidential elections can come only from the PECF. If that Fund runs short of funds, no other general Treasury funds may be used.

What’s the PECF? It’s a small amount of cash you can voluntarily give when paying your protection money….I mean federal taxes…each year which goes towards funding for presidential elections. It’s on your tax forms for you to check yes or no if you want to do it or not. If you use corporate accounting firms like H&R Block you may have heard your accountant ask you if you want to contribute to it as she typed it into the computer. According to the FEC webpage the current amount that you would pledge if you chose to do so would be three dollars.

Obama opted out of using public funds in 2008. So far I’ve found no indication in the media of whether or not he plans to use public funds in 2012 but, playing the odds, it’s unlikely.

Since I never contribute to the PECF myself, what Jesse Lee needs to answer and provide documentation to prove is whether or not his activities are being paid for with money from this fund or with my money?

Using simple logic it would seem that if Jesse Lee was being funded with taxpayer money from somewhere other than the PECF, and the FEC took the time to underline the words on their webpage stating that no other general Treasury funds may be used for a presidential election, then we have a problem.

Of course, to cover its tail the White House may try to argue that Jesse Lee’s Internet activities won’t constitute campaign work. That instead of campaigning he’s “setting the record straight” on behalf of the President, like a press secretary would.

However, press secretaries usually put out statements and answer questions from the press on behalf of the President conducting United States business. Sometimes it might get political depending on the questions asked, or the issue of the day, but press secretaries are not supposed to be used as a campaign mouthpiece or as a microphone to attack political critics or promote a political ideology. Once a person is the President of the United States he represents everybody, and can’t use tax money unless it’s for government business.

Indeed members of the President’s administration have the right to go on TV or be interviewed by magazines and give their own point of view. Yet these people, like Hillary Clinton for example, are active members of the administration with jobs that are based on representing the interests of the United States in functional matters, not solely on defending the President’s record. Jesse Lee’s official White House title– Director of Progressive Media & Online Response—clearly shows that his position is one conducting political business, not government business. Progressive, after all, is a political ideology, like conservative, anarchist, or communist.

For those who haven’t yet worked enough of the “Hopeium” out of their system from 2008 to understand this, let’s say hypothetically that a Libertarian became President and hired me with your money as his White House Director of Libertarian Media & Online Response, carrying out the same kind of activities that Jesse Lee is going to be doing. Around reelection time I would be collecting your money and trolling the Internet, either going after you on your blogs or (closer to Jesse Lee’s situation) going after libertarians calling the President a hypocrite for using taxpayer money in such a fashion (which in this scenario it would be hypocritical if a libertarian president did such a thing).

A simple change of Jesse Lee’s title wouldn’t erase the fact that it’s part of a political campaign. The White House has already shown the true nature of the job in the title Jesse Lee now has.

Some people have asserted that the President has a right use the “bully pulpit” to promote his views and because of that Jesse Lee’s position at taxpayer expense (outside the PECF) would be justified, However, the “bully pulpit” is just an expression meaning that the President, having an influential position, has the ability to bring attention to certain issues himself by talking about them while in the public eye. It’s not an official power listed in the Constitution and certainly doesn’t give the President the right use public funds to pay for an official propagandist.

Now let’s look at the job itself.

Jesse Lee’s new position is to go on the Internet and do battle with the President’s political detractors. It’s much like a campaign volunteer interrupting a rival’s rally or speech, which in the wild west of the blogosphere is of course part of the game, but again– it’s political. Unless the money to pay Lee comes from the PECF, then essentially Obama is aiming the loaded gun of federal tax power at people who speak out against his policies, taking their money to use against them for political gain.

Not to mention the fact that Lee’s position wasn’t created until the election season started and after a number of Republican candidates had already announced that they were running. To say that the President is not running for office right now and that Lee’s new job has nothing to do with the election would be absurd.

Jesse Lee’s job is absolutely political, absolutely being done as part of the President’s reelection push, and absolutely something I, and countless others, don’t want to pay for. The fact that donating to the PECF is voluntary proves that Obama can’t just use taxpayer money for his own reelection activities without following clearly stated rules, (like the one underlined on the FEC’s webpage) no matter how noble he thinks his policies are and how much he thinks America will benefit from another four years of seeing his face on TV.

It’s not a new insight that Obama and many of his supporters operate under the philosophy that because the man won an election (in a race tightly controlled by a media highlighting only a selected few points of view), that the President and the once Democratic Congress somehow received a mandate to impose their will on every American, regardless of their constitutional limitations. A good example of this is the mandate that U.S. citizens must purchase health insurance, which is unlike auto or home insurance, or the income tax because theoretically it’s possible to live your life without driving a car, owning a house, or having a job. With the mandate a person is forced to buy a product against his or her own will and is unable to avoid it. This wildly unconstitutional law was born from a mentality of mob rule and a form of governance that the founders wisely hindered when establishing our constitutional republic, the basic rules of which don’t change just because some guy won an election. The President doesn’t have the right to use taxpayer money (with the exception of the PECF) to promote a political philosophy or himself just because voters put him in charge of the Treasury, no more than a bank president has the right to use bank money to pay a consultant to polish up his resume.

If Jesse Lee wants to fight the attacks, then he needs to start with this one and address this troubling question of funding. Not just Jesse, but the FEC too. Again, I have seen no indication that Obama has taken PECF funds for his 2012 campaign.

In case Jesse has missed this article, please share it with him at his Twitter page, and also “follow” him on it so you can ask these questions yourself.

Comic Book Writers unite to help survivors of Joplin, MO tornado

America 20xy

5/27/11

By Andrew Steele

“I could complain about it or I could do something about it,” writes comic book writer and activist Katrina Joyner, speaking of the relief needed for the people of Joplin, MO. “…there’s already someone local inside of Joplin doing what they can. That someone is Hurley’s Heroes, the comic shop that hosts that lovely little convention. They’re taking donations of food, clothing, water, and comics for the people in the shelters. They’re offering their own building as a shelter! But in order to be more effective, they need more help.”

Katrina has started Joplin Aid in order to raise money and get needed goods for the victims of the tornado that devastated that town earlier this week. Donations of money, food, and water, as well as toys and comic books are being accepted. The campaign is quickly spreading across the blogosphere, especially among the graphic designers and comic book artists, who are participating in a unique form of advertising by spreading a web banner that each new bearer changes, featuring their own cartoon characters urging their readers to help.

As of the this writing the death toll in the Joplin is officially 132 people, though the search isn’t over and that number may rise. Scores of others have been left homeless, their possessions lost destroyed or under piles of rubble.

Donations are needed. Even if you can’t send food or water, sending your grown up kids’ old toys or books may help keep give the shaken children of Joplin (and their parents) a welcome distraction from the trauma they’ve endured. The survivors are going to have to rebuild their lives again from the bottom up. Even if the donation is small, every little bit counts.

If you want to make a cash donation you can go to PayPal HERE and send it to hurleysheroes@gmail.com .

For other types of donations please send to:

1515 W. 10th Ste. C
(10th & Maiden Ln.)
Joplin, MO 64801

Texas standing up to blockade threat would have forced Obama to show his true face

America 20xy

5/26/11

By Andrew Steele

As President Obama was in Great Britain being praised by the British monarchy for using the U.S. military to not only babysit but also expand its old empire, and as the relationship between the United States and its historic imperial master was being celebrated as “special”, back at home his administration was initiating events similar to those that helped ignite the American Revolution over two hundred years ago.

This week the Department of Justice threatened to blockade Texas by canceling flights going to and from the state if its legislature passed a bill that would prevent TSA agents from groping innocent passengers. The law would have made it a criminal act for security personnel to touch a person’s private areas without probable cause as a condition of travel or as a condition of entry into a public place. Despite being passed in the Texas House of Reps, because of the threat the bill was killed in the Senate.

Obviously the threat is an act of financial terrorism, and a telling reminder that the 10th Amendment is being held captive by a domineering Federal Government headed by a dictatorial executive branch and enabled by a castrated, codependent legislature, each overstepping their constitutional authorities in order to ram a police state control grid down the American peoples’ throats.

The paralyzing fear generated from the blockade threat was a knee-jerk reaction from state politicians who are used to pandering to those of higher political castes in order to further their own careers. Fearing controversy and attack from media windbags like those on MSNBC, they failed to realize that standing up to the White House on an issue as black and white and as bipartisan as this one (hardly anyone likes the TSA groping them or their children) could have actually knocked over the first domino in stopping the out control TSA dead in its tracks.

Let’s look at reality:

First of all, the assertion that the TSA is out of control is not an exaggeration. The idea of officers sticking their hands in an old lady’s pants to prevent terrorism is ridiculous on its face, especially since Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab—the underwear bomber who is used as the justification for all this—was turned in to the U.S. authorities by his father as a potential terrorist before the near bombing event even happened. He was allegedly on the “terror watch list” and was helped onto the plane by a guy in a suit, as witnessed by attorney Kurt Haskell, who was on the same flight that Abdulmutallab tried to blow up.

The Director of the National Counter terrorism Center, Michael E. Leiter, said when he was speaking to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on January 20, 2010: “I will tell you, that when people come to the country and they are on the watch list, it is because we have generally made the choice that we want them here in the country for some reason or another.”

Like a malignant tumor the agency is quickly invading more and more areas of American life. Openly there’s talk now of stationing the TSA at train stations and at malls. Recently the TSA was almost at a high school prom in Santa Fe, New Mexico. (Luckily the powers that be backed down following push back from citizens.)

Second of all, President Obama’s hypocrisy and rhetoric have made his administration more vulnerable in the war of public opinion. Right now Obama is overseas preaching about the supposed nobility of American wars by invoking “human rights” and “democracy” and condemning foreign leaders like Gaddafi for allegedly attacking their own people. If the President suddenly blockaded one of his own states and brought large parts of its commerce to a screeching halt over its exercising of a constitutional prerogative, the people of the United States and the rest of the world would see beyond a shadow of a doubt the clay feet on which Obama stands. Blockades are an exercise of force, so the question would then have to be asked– how far are you willing to go, Mr. President, in enforcing this blockade? Let’s say hypothetically that Texas had passed the bill and decided to allow private airlines operating there to fly in and out of the state at their own risk despite the blockade? Would Obama be prepared to arrest the pilots of these airlines? Shoot them down even?

Another question President Obama would have had to answer is how long he planned on carrying out his war against his own people if Texas didn’t back down?

The reality is that in order to carry out the threat, President Obama would have to become what he pretends to stand against. He is a coward who is only as strong as the hired muscle and media spin masters standing in front of him, planning his every movement and word. Such a nature is a prerequisite for anyone who aspires to gain the elevated status that he now enjoys, being shoved onto the American people by a carefully coordinated media campaign and put in office by a strategically controlled political process that seeks only to maintain continuity of agenda for the Anglo-American Empire. Blockading Texas could only succeed in putting Obama in the history books as the reincarnation of King George III, and further ignite the human will of Americans to stand up against the erosion of civil liberties and the continued dismantling of the U.S. Constitution, demonstrating to everyone how low our government is willing to sink in order to stamp out the voice of its people.

“Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God.”

If Texas had passed the anti-groping bill, the Obama administration would have been forced to show its true face– either as despotic emperor overseeing the planned destruction of the American political system, or as a paper tiger backing away like a whimpering bully with a bloody nose.

“Post 9/11 World” continues as Senate passes renewal of Patriot Act provisions

America 20xy

5/26/11

By Andrew Steele

Earlier today the Senate passed a bill to renew three expiring provisions of the Patriot Act, ignoring calls by Rand Paul to include changes that would provide some safeguards to protect 4th Amendment rights.

The vote was 72-23.

The provisions, which were set to expire at midnight tonight, allows the government to order roving wiretaps, search business records, and watch non-American “lone wolf” suspects who have no ties to terrorist groups.

Rand Paul’s proposed changes to the Patriot Act and his speech regarding them a few days ago on the floor of the Senate can be viewed HERE.

Ten years after the false flag event that served as the pretext for the Patriot Act and endless war, and shortly after the alleged kill of the manufactured boogeyman that the American people were told orchestrated it, the “post 9/11 world” continues.

Career conscious and fear mongered politicians wouldn’t dare let it fade.

Obama’s Internet Brownshirts to carry out “aggressive engagement” of bloggers critical of the President

America 20xy

5/25/11

By Andrew Steele

Facing a new election with little to run on but a questionable (to say the least) story of killing Osama bin Laden, and unable to inspire many independent bloggers to voluntarily defend the President’s record of war mongering and record deficit, Obama’s campaign team has created a position within its communications shop designed to provide “rapid response” to unfavorable stories on the net for “more aggressive engagement in the online world”.

What this implies is that Obama’s reelection team is planning to hire trolls to lurk about the Internet and insert talking points into comment boards on blogs critical to the President and his policies.

Cass Sunstein must be proud. He once called for a similar strategy in confronting “conspiracy theorists” on the web.

According to an internal memo obtained by the Huffington Post from the White House:

“This week, Jesse Lee will move from the new media department into a role in the communications department as Director of Progressive Media & Online Response….For the last two years, Jesse has often worn two hats working in new media and serving as the White House’s liaison with the progressive media and online community. Starting this week, Jesse will take on the second role full time working on outreach, strategy and response.”

As Obama’s team, and the rest of the entrenched government and media establishment, lose more and more ground in the information war and become more brazen in their contempt for the U.S. Constitution and the international community (most recently answering the War Powers Resolution deadline by bombing the hell out of Tripoli) they’ve struggled to hold back the growing flood of public outrage over the situation that Obama and his predecessor have led this country into. Having underestimated the will of many Americans who are using the Internet to commandeer the influence of the mainstream media and tell the truth, the machine is now trying to play a game of catch-up…like a demoralized occupying army attempting to mimic their more successful guerilla opponents, deep down lacking the moral high ground, and thus the motivational edge, to make it work.

Facts are facts. Obama has maintained the erosion of our civil liberties by reauthorizing the Patriot Act, has played games of semantics and legal twister in ignoring constitutional requirements for him to receive permission from Congress when it comes to waging war, gone back on his promises of closing Gitmo, hired lobbyists when he said he wouldn’t, tortured Bradley Manning for exposing inconvenient truths about the war in Iraq, and committed the U.S. to more war by backing up rebels in Libya who are carrying out genocide, as well as maintaining the callous policy of slaughtering innocent Pakistanis with drone bombings and creating further hatred against Americans overseas

Along with that, Obama’s foreign policy in Pakistan has also put our nation in a potentially precarious situation with China. Just last week, as a result of Obama’s clandestine actions in Pakistan and the escalation of propaganda within the United States drumming up contrived outrage against that country, China issued an ultimatum to the United States telling the White House that an attack on Pakistan will be considered an attack on them.

The idea of a Nobel Peace Prize winner bringing us closer to World War 3 than we’ve ever been since the Cold War would be considered ironic if not for the fact that the Nobel Committee is just an extension of the same elite world fraternity that helped Obama get into the White House in the first place.

On top of his destructive foreign and domestic policies Obama has chosen to cling to the same destructive Keynesian economic policies that plunge the United States into its current mess, all at the expense of devaluing the dollar further and eroding the purchasing power of Americans’ savings.

Obama offers nothing but empty campaign slogans and all out lies. If his hired trolls really want to know how to be successful in the information war here’s some advice– switch sides and start telling the truth. It may not get you free White House lunches, but it will make your job easier and you’ll sleep better at night.

CRIMINAL DOJ THREATENED TO CANCEL ALL FLIGHTS TO AND FROM TEXAS IF STATE PASSED ANTI-GROPING BILL

America 20xy

5/25/11

By Andrew Steele

In an amazingly naked act of tyranny the Department of Justice has threatened to cancel flights going to and from Texas if that state’s legislature passes HB 1937– a bill that would protect the 4th Amendment rights of Americans traveling by air in Texas by curtailing the power of TSA agents to grope innocent passengers and making it a “criminal act for security personnel to touch a person’s private areas without probable cause as a condition of travel or as a condition of entry into a public place”. Right now it seems efforts to pass the bill have been halted because of this threat.

A letter from U.S. Attorney John E. Murphy sent to various members of Texas’ legislature read:

“If HR [sic] 1937 were enacted, the Federal Government would likely seek an emergency stay of the statute…Unless or until such a stay were granted, TSA would likely be required to cancel any flight or series of flights for which it could not ensure the safety of passengers and crew….We urge that you consider the ramifications of this bill before casting your vote.”

(The entire letter can viewed HERE )

This would obviously have serious financial ramifications for the state of Texas and people traveling through there.

To begin with, despite the fact that certain criminals in government have fear mongered and managed to intimidate the nation into accepting submission to their demands, as well as unconstitutional legislation like the Patriot Act, according to the 4th Amendment the Federal Government has no authority to mandate that people undergo invasive searches without reasonable cause. On top of that, states have the individual right to determine what constitutes a sexual assault, meaning that if Texas wants to pass a law telling TSA agents that they can’t stick their hands in peoples’ pants they have the power to do that.

As Paul Joseph Watson at Prison Planet has properly expressed, this amounts to a U.S. Federal Government blockade of Texas. In fact, it’s an act reminiscent of the early days of the American Revolution when the British blockaded Boston Harbor after colonists protested the Tea Act by dressing like Indians and storming a ship, dumping the cargo into the water. However, unlike that incident, the Federal Government’s blockade of Texas doesn’t even enjoy the superficial excuse of claiming to be a response to an aggressive act of vandalism. Instead it’s an act of financial terrorism against a state government for carrying out a legal action designed to uphold basic constitutional protections for all Americans.

During his broadcast on May 25th, radio host Alex Jones called for people in Texas to arrive at the Texas State Capitol and peacefully protest, as well as call local radio and TV stations to report the story.

This has the potential of being a “line in the sand” moment in the battle for 4th Amendment and state rights if the media chooses to pick up on it. If Texas gives in to the demands of an administration trying to ram police state conditioning down Americans’ throats, it will only embolden the DOJ, TSA, and White House to increase their threats and up their attacks later on.

After Obama ignores War Powers Resolution deadline, NATO bombs the hell out of Tripoli

America 20xy

5/24/11

By Andrew Steele

As the War Powers Resolution deadline for Obama’s crusade in Libya passes, NATO has desperately stepped up its bombing campaign, striking at least 15 different targets in Tripoli in what the New York Times has called the heaviest attack yet on the capital in the two months since Obama thrust the United States into the conflict.

According to the War Powers Resolution the President is given a 60 day limit to wage wars that haven’t been declared by Congress. The deadline passed last week and President Obama has brazenly chosen to ignore it, playing games of semantics as he callously wipes his feet on the Constitution and makes it clear that the presidency is now a dictatorship and that Congress is just a rubber stamp.

The NATO bombing, which is part of a so called “humanitarian mission” to support rebels that are carrying out their own brutal atrocities in an attempted power grab from Gadhafi, created explosions and fireballs that shot up high in the sky over Tripoli. One outraged Libyan was quoted by the New York Times as saying, “We thought it was the day of judgment.”.

The International Red Cross has said that the war in Libya could drag on throughout the end of the year. Indeed, even after the bombs stop falling the effects of the war will linger on permanently for many people caught in the conflict as it appears NATO has chosen to use depleted uranium bombs in its takeover of the nation. Depleted uranium use by the United States and its allies is responsible for cancer and birth defects in Fallujah, Iraq, a nation that still suffers as a result of the United States’ invasion in 2003.

The latest “shock and awe” like campaign in Tripoli is a desperate attempt by NATO to break Gadhafi’s military control of the country and install a puppet regime that will be more subservient to a planned new global world order. Previous to Libya, nations like Tunisia and Egypt fell like dominos as a result of the globalist planned revolutions, the momentum hitting a snag as Gadhafi proved to have a bit more staying power than anticipated. The U.S. backed Libyan rebels have already gone about the work of establishing a central bank to indebt the nation and open it up to foreign pillage once Gadhafi is gone. Meanwhile, Obama has kept his eye on staged revolutions happening in other Middle Eastern countries like Syria and Yemen, as well as antagonizing Pakistan with more drone bombings in preparation for a future conflict there…most likely after his Libya problem is resolved.

Disney ride is latest propaganda weapon used to sell body scanners and overbearing TSA

America 20xy

5/23/11

By Andrew Steele

The police state indoctrination process continues, teaching the public to embrace overbearing TSA screening procedures and body scanners.

Disney’s “Star Tours Star Wars” simulator ride, which apparently was closed for renovations, has now been re-opened to include a “parody of TSA checkpoints”.

From Gizmodo, 5/23/11…

“The second room of the queue is now a security check area, similar to a TSA checkpoint. The two G-series droids are still there, G2-9T scanning luggage and G2-4T scanning passengers…

While we won’t tell you why, you’ll enjoy paying a lot of attention to what the scans of the luggage show is inside. When it’s your turn to go through the passenger scan (a thermal body scan), you may be verbally accosted by a security droid. Also, keep an eye out in the queue for an earlier version of RX-24 (“Captain Rex”) from the original Star Tours; he’s labeled “defective” and has some familiar dialogue.”

The campaign of using fear, mass peer pressure, entertainment, and propaganda disguised as news to teach the American public to embrace body scanners (which themselves train Americans to be servile to their government’s demands and the people in uniform that carry them out) has been in full swing ever since federal agents allowed Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab onto an airplane in December, 2009 so he could set his underwear on fire and light the spark for the engineered mass hysteria the government needs to sell Americans their surrender.

Earlier this month my local news played the following report, using a bombing in Pakistan as the springboard for subtly telling the viewers of Oneida and Herkimer counties in Upstate New York that they need to give up their liberties (including embracing the body scanners) out of fear of a possible Al-CIA-da attack.

VIDEO: Irish citizen told by Irish police that she can’t bring Irish flag near site of British Queen’s visit

America 20xy

5/20/11

By Andrew Steele

In the first of the the videos below a police officer stops an activist from going past the barricade on her way to watch the Queen, telling her that she can’t bring the Irish flag in. The officer at first doesn’t offer any further explanation as to why it’s not allowed. After the activist voices her protest to the crowd of people waiting outside the barricade the officer seems to change her explanation, claiming that the flag is banned because it’s attached to a stick (which is still a weak and baseless justification). As you’ll see in the second video, however, other non-Irish flags on similar sticks appear to have been allowed in (it shows an Australian flag with the Union Jack on it waving near the Queen’s motorcade.) The video includes a picture of Irish police throwing Irish flags exclusively into a truck.

San Francisco man cured of HIV-AIDS during bone marrow transplant

America 20xy

5/18/11

By Andrew Steele

Finally some good news.

For the first time ever somebody has been cured of HIV-AIDS. His name is Timothy Ray Brown, who was diagnosed with the fatal disease 15 years ago, along with being diagnosed with Leukemia years later.

His luck changed during a stem cell bone marrow transplant when he was cured of HIV-AIDS, it was later discovered.

The stem cells themselves came from someone who was immune to the disease, a fortunate minority which accounts for up to 1 percent of the world’s Caucasian population.

“If you’re able to take the white cells from someone and manipulate them so they’re no longer infected, or infectable, no longer infectable by HIV, and those white cells become the whole immune system of that individual, you’ve got essentially a functional cure,” said Dr. Jay Levi, who is an HIV-AIDS researcher at the University of California-San Francisco.
While Levy has called the discovery a “functional cure”, more study needs to be done. Bone marrow transplants themselves present mortal dangers and are not an ideal method for battling disease. Doctors aren’t sure what part of Brown’s treatment allowed the virus to be purged from his body but at least a path has been laid towards finding the ultimate cure. No doubt, this discovery will reawaken the ambition and dedication of researchers everywhere seeking to cure a disease that just in 2009 infected 2.2 million people and killed 1.8 million worldwide.

Rupee News also identified fake bin Laden in video as “Akbar Khan, the landord”

America 20xy

5/16/11

By Andrew Steele

I discovered another news source that identifies the man in the “bin Laden watching TV” video as Akbar Khan, listing him as the landlord of the house where the raid happened.

During a BBC report an Abbottabad local by the name of Shabir looked at a picture in a newspaper, taken from the video put out that the U.S. government claims is of Osama bin Laden. Shabir identified the man as Akbar Khan, who he said was his neighbor that he knew very well, and who owned the house where bin Laden was allegedly killed by Seals on May 1st, 2011. Shabir was ignored by reporter Orla Guerin, who went on to lament about how Pakistani locals were refusing to swallow foreign propaganda and the White House’s shady story about the raid. Most of the mainstream media has identified the owner of the compound as Arshad Khan–bin Laden’s alleged courier–who was shot in the raid and whose death photos have been released. (He looked nothng like the old man in the so called “bin Laden watching TV” video…neither did Osama bin Laden for that matter). Now other stories reporting that ”Akbar Khan” was one of the co-owners of the compound (along with his brother Rashid) are being discovered, backing up Shabir’s claim. Along with Anwar Shakir’s story on Bloomberg’s website published May 4th, we now have this from the Rupee News, May 10th, 2011…

Didn’t Osama Bin Laden have a black beard?

All pictures of Osama Bin Laden show him with a black beard–albeit, some pictures show him with a few gray hairs. The recently released video shows a man sitting on the floor with a white beard. Local Abbottabadis recognize the man as Mr. Akbar Khan, the landlord of Waziristan House where the Navy Seal raid took place. The CIA narrative is that it is a video of Mr. Bin Laden watching his own video. The man with the white beard has no mustache reflecting the Hanafi school, while OBL had a mustache that follow Wahabi or Salafi doctrine.

Financial Times story verifies that Akbar Khan (man named as actual person in ‘seized bin Laden video’) really existed and owned the residence

5/16/11

By Andrew Steele

On May 3rdFarhan Bokhari of the Financial Times wrote a story titled ”Awoken by deafening roar of helicopters” about a nearby neighbor of the compound where Osama bin Laden was allegedly shot on May 1st, living 200 yards away with a 2 acre plot full of wheat between them. The neighbor’s name was Ihsaan Bashir, a 20 year old college student. According to the story he woke up to the sound of gunfire and climbed up on the roof of his house to see a U.S. helicopter flying over his head as flames raged at the compound.

From that article:

Mr Bashir understood that the cavernous, concrete house was “a residence belonging to a low-profile businessman”. Akbar and Rashid Khan, two Afghan émigrés, lived at bin Laden’s residence and were known to his neighbours. The two exchanged pleasantries but kept their distance.

The article states that the whereabouts of Akbar and Rashid Khan are unknown.

A BBC report taped many days after the raid featured an Abbottabad local named Shabir who looked at a picture in a newspaper that was taken from the supposed video of bin Laden watching himself on TV, which was put out by the U.S. government to try to prove that Osama bin Laden had indeed lived at the compound. However, Shabir identified the man as his neighbor–Akbar Khan– who he said he knew very well, and who owned the house where bin Laden was allegedly killed by Seals on May 1st, 2011.

Washington Post article attempts to acclimate Americans to the idea of selling off the nation’s gold, land, and utilities

America 20xy

5/16/11

By Andrew Steele

On the day the United States reaches its debt limit, with Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner having recently threatened a supposed financial catastrophe if the debt ceiling isn’t raised by August 2nd (just as we were threatened with economic Armageddon before the doomed bailout was hastily passed in 2008) the Washington Post has come out with an article designed to plant the seed in its readers minds suggesting that we should sell the nation’s gold as well as its land and utilities in order to buy time before the orchestrated of the United States collapse happens.

Just as international bankers who manipulated Greece were able to get the nation to put islands once owned by its government up for sale during thaits planned collapse, bankers are using the crisis they created to seize real assets in the United States in the name of paying off the fake debt…stealing the true wealth of a once great nation out from under its peoples’ noses.

The article features a slideshow of American landmarks such as the Grand Canyon and Mt. Rushmore, along with captions like, “The United States may have run up a huge debt, but it is not a poor country by any stretch of the imagination. The federal government owns roughly 650 million acres of land, a million buildings, electrical utilities and an interstate highway system. What could it sell?”

The article itself reads much like a late night infomercial encouraging gullible viewers to sell the gold “scraps” lying around their houses to some company for a measly sum of Federal Reserve notes, which are losing value as gold rises, quoting Ron Utt– a senior fellow at the Heritage Foundation– who says of the gold in Fort Knox, “It’s just sort of sitting there. Given the high price it is now, and the tremendous debt problem we now have, by all means, sell at the peak.”

Claiming that the selloff is the idea of “conservatives”, the next paragraph goes on to present the supposed counter argument from the Obama administration…which doesn’t actually counter the sickening idea of selling the nation’s gold to criminals, merely the method.

But that’s cockamamie, declares the Obama administration. Mary Miller, Treasury’s assistant secretary for financial markets, said the United States should sell assets in an orderly, “well-telegraphed” manner, not in a “fire sale” atmosphere with a debt limit deadline accelerating the process.

One paragraph, quotes an unnamed Obama administration official who calls the idea, “…one level of ’crazy’ away from selling Mt. Rushmore”. This sentiment being expressed from a member of the White House might provide some hope if not for the fact that the article goes on to subtly imprint in the readers’ minds the notion that the nation’s gold supply is a worthless relic of the past, like a grandfather’s dusty golf clubs sitting in the attic after he’s been dead for years. Adding to Ron Utt’s sentiment that the gold “is just sitting there” the article states ”the country does not use the gold for anything”. The only concern expressed at the idea of selling the gold is that a sudden sell off would yield firehouse prices and would signal desperation on the part of the United States.

Throughout human history nations have fallen and currency systems have collapsed, however gold has maintained a steady worth, usually spiking just as a country’s fiat money is devalued. When the dollar collapses and the United States is transitioned into a regional or world currency system, as is the stated plan of the world’s elite, those holding onto the gold after having bought it with fiat money right before it hyper inflated will continue to control the world’s wealth, simply translating the gold into its equivalent value under the new currency system. Not only that, but buying up land and utilities would place the assets elite owner in the position of modern day feudal lords overseeing a nation of serfs. This would usher in a new Dark Age across the planet, held together by the technological slave grid being put in place by computers, drones, and by a nation of people finding mostly intelligence and security jobs as the only ones left in the shadow of America’s continuing economic collapse.

That is, of course, if we let the globalists get away with it.

Writers attacking Rashard Mendenhall invoke neurotic emotion and lies, showing they know nothing about 9/11

America 20xy

5/14/11

By Andrew Steele

The corporate media’s assault on Rashard Mendenhall is continuing, publicly crucifying the man over his tweets on May 1st, 2011 when Osama bin Laden’s alleged kill by Navy Seal Team 6 was announced. While drumming up contrived outrage over the fact that Mendenhall questioned whether or not it was right for cheering crowds to be celebrating a person’s death, the media is also asserting that it is somehow unpatriotic and “disrespectful to the 9/11 victims’ families” to question the collapse of the Twin Towers and World Trade Center 7, which was not hit by an airplane but collapsed completely in free fall. (See the video below)



At this stage it is mostly sports writers that are maintaining this attack. While invoking 9/11 families and patriotism in their diatribes, many writers are saying that Rashard Mendenhall shouldn’t have commented on matters which he knew nothing about. In this regard, these writers should follow their own advice because it’s clear from their articles that they themselves know nothing about the subject of which they are writing, and that Rashard Mendenhall is more educated on the matter than they are.

First, the myth that questioning the government’s explanation for the collapse of the Twin Towers and WTC 7 on 9/11 is somehow disrespectful to the victims’ families is designed to instill immediate guilt into the person that does so and strengthen the emotional brick wall of this manufactured taboo. In fact, there are a number of 9/11 victims’ family members who have the same questions about the improbable collapses, and are even more vocal about them than Rashard Mendenhall was in his tweets. They have formed a group called “Remember Building 7” (Formerly Building What?). Their commercial has run in New York City and the organization has been featured on Fox News. (See the clips below) This group includes Pennsylvania resident Bob McIlvain who lost his son in one of the towers on 9/11.





Second, unlike sports writers who have had their nationalistic views fed to them by Army commercials played during TV timeouts, Rashard Mendenhall’s questions about the collapse of the Twin Towers are backed by (as of this writing) 1,497 verified architectural and engineering professionals. Their names and backgrounds can be viewed on the petition they’ve signed HERE.

Along with its scientifically credentialed supporters, the organization Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth currently includes 11,972 other supporters and volunteers (including myself). It has successfully raised awareness of this issue, including holding a press conference in Washington DC last year with former Alaska Senator Mike Gravel in which evidence for the controlled demolition of the Twin Towers and WTC 7 was presented. The head of the organization—Richard Gage—has travelled the world educating people about the science of 9/11 and the impossibility of the government’s story. The film “Blueprint for Truth” features Gage’s 2 hour presentation and can currently be viewed for free on Google Video. (Click HERE to watch).

Investigators at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have been forced to acknowledge the free-fall descent of WTC 7. As well, according to AE911Truth’s press release for the conference in Washington DC last September:

* The Twin Towers suffered total destruction in 10 to 14 seconds in near free-fall accelerations which can only occur as a result of pre-set demolition explosives.

* More than 100 first responders reported explosions and flashes consistent with pre-set demolitions.

* 90,000 tons of concrete and metal decking was pulverized in mid-air, creating the signature dust clouds of controlled demolitions.

* A massive debris field 1,400 feet in diameter, along with the absence of “pancaked” floors, indicates a very explosive destruction of each tower.

* The presence of several tons of molten metal found in the debris is consistent with the extreme temperatures generated by the use of thermite – an incendiary used to cut through steel like a hot knife through butter.

* An international team of scientists found nano-thermitic composite material in World Trade Center dust samples, providing hard evidence of the presence of advanced energetic materials in the disaster debris.

Whether or not he meant to step into an ongoing national controversy, the fact is that Rashard Mendenhall is on the right side of it. Claiming that somebody is wrong for questioning the government’s explanation for the collapse of the Twin Towers and WTC 7 is like saying 2+2=5. Though it’s clear that a large number of the nation’s political and scientific journalists have chosen to either ignore this inconvenient evidence, lie to themselves, or participate in a cover-up, the clearly demonstrated ignorance of America’s sports writers most likely has less to do with intellectual dishonesty than the fact that most of the country itself has fallen under a dangerous net of neurotic mass denial– of which these writers are a part– refusing to look at the reality of extremely dark truths and their implications.

Unfortunately, for the sake of this country and the future of our children, we can’t afford the luxury of this cowardice any longer.

Bloomberg named “Akbar Khan” (aka fake bin Laden watching TV in video) as co-owner of supposed bin Laden compound

RELATED:

*Financial Times story verifies that Akbar Khan (man named as actual person in ‘seized bin Laden video’) really existed and owned the residence

*Could the fake bin Laden watching TV in video, referenced as “Akbar Khan” on BBC, be related to Arshad Khan?

*Rupee News also identified fake bin Laden in video as “Akbar Khan, the landord”

By Andrew Steele

On May 4th Bloomberg published a story by Anwar Shakir which reported that the compound where Osama bin Laden was allegedly killed on May 1st, 2011 was owned by Rashid and Akbar Khan, who the article indirectly implies were buying groceries for bin Laden, (though the evidence presented for that particular implication seems to be based simply on the observation by a local that the men bought a lot of food).

As some may know, “Akbar Khan” was the name that an Abbottabad local by the name of Shabir told reporter Orla Guerin of the BBC was the actual man in the video watching television that we’ve all seen, whom the press has tried to assert was Osama bin Laden, despite the fact that the person in the video looks nothing like him.

With fake bin Laden kill, U.S. to use pretend treasure trove of “seized info” to justify future police state policies and international aggression

5/13/11

Andrew Steele

The first part of the headline– that the seized info is being used to justify police state policies– is proven by the fact that it’s happening right now. Based on all the lies that have been told about the operation and the quick destruction of evidence, it’s obvious that Osama bin Laden wasn’t killed on May 1st 2011 and that the story we’ve being handed is a lie. Therefore, it’s safe to assert that the “treausre trove of info” seized is also an imaginary cog in this elaborate hoax. Currently the government is using a so-called plan to attack railways on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 that they “discovered” in bin Laden’s compound to push for a no ride list on trains just as they’ve done with airplanes. This expansion is designed to control peoples’ free movement about the United States and intimidate anyone that the U.S. government deems to be a personal enemy. There are numerous cases of people who are merely political opponents and critics of U.S. policy– not “terrorists”– being on the terror watch list and unable to fly. The watch list is not a tool used for protection, but to strike back at dissenters using their free speech with baseless accusations of supporting terrorism. The “no ride” list would just be the next step of this plan.

The second part of the headline regarding aggression against other countries is explained in this interview with Webster Tarpley on Press TV. The transcript is below. The actual interview can be watched by clicking HERE.

‘US seeks to divide Pakistan’

The US has released videos of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden allegedly found during a raid on his hideout in Pakistan’s Abbottabad.

In an interview with Press TV, author and historian Webster Griffin Tarpley elaborates on a US ploy to divide Pakistan.

Press TV: The US has shown some pictures without saying when they have been taken. How does the Pentagon expect people to buy its bin Laden story?

Tarpley: Through the force of repeated affirmation. We have to remember we are in the land of completely unsubstantiated claims. We’re in the land of no proof of anything.

And I think what we have to focus on is this treasure trove, as they call it. The so-called cache that they claimed to have found: hard drives, disk drives, thumb drives, all these terabytes of information.

Their immediate goal is to build credibility for this treasure trove so the technique that they’ve chosen is the human interest story, you might say: reality television, bin Laden at home, home movies, candid camera, or for voyeurs the “bin Laden cam” – the candid shot of bin Laden sitting in his easy chair. This is designed to get people interested in the story.

The idea, though, is that second or third waves of this information will then be released. It’s all doctored, manufactured, and it will target countries like Pakistan, number one, Iran, number two, and quite possibly Hezbollah. It will target individuals that the US is interested in attacking like Gaddafi, Assad of Syria, or Saleh of Yemen.

And the technique here is the one that was used in the well known CIA hangout operation known as Wikileaks where they start with information which is shocking. In this case, they start with information which is human interest.

Then they go to a second wave. And then finally they go to a third wave where you can see who the targets really are. This is pretty much what happened with Wikileaks last year. So, I’m looking for successive waves of so-called revelations of this fake treasure trove that will then show you the targeting procedure of US and British intelligence.

Press TV:Since this happened in Pakistan, we’re looking at riles in public between the Pakistani government and Washington. But we’re also hearing that relations between the two countries has deteriorated over US drone strikes but also the latest attack on bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad that killed him. Are the relations between the US and Pakistan as bad as they are portrayed to be?

Tarpley: I think they’re very bad. They could be going in the direction of open war. The war against Pakistan was basically declared by Obama in his West Point speech in December of 2009.

This has now been escalated. We’ve had the Ray Davis affair. We’ve had a series of acrimonious exchanges between General Kayani and Admiral Mullen at this Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The US plan to make peace with the Taliban in reality involves the idea that the US can gain control of the Pashtun population and play that ethnic group in a cross-border civil war into Pakistan with the idea being the same one it’s always been: wake up Pakistan into the Sindh, Punjabi, the Baluchistan area, the [Pakhtunkhwa] area.

In other words, fragment Pakistan in four ways, which will mean that you’ll never have a Pakistan energy pipeline with an oil pipeline from Iran into China. And that is the big strategic goal.

So the breakup of Pakistan is at the top of the agenda. And it has to be done indirectly because Pakistan, of course, has nuclear weapons. In a certain way, nuclear deterrence is operative against the United States in several military realms.

But the US has chosen this oblique warfare, this irregular warfare – guerrilla warfare, if you like – with this pseudo bin Laden being a part of it.

The Police State conditioning comes home, (specifically to mine)….

In light of the recent bombing in Pakistan, supposedly the work of the Taliban to avenge the fake bin Laden death, WKTV in Utica NY ran the following report:



UPDATE: The first couple paragraphs of the comments which had been up have now been deleted by the page administrator at WKTV though nothing offensive was written.

As of this writing my entire comment hasn’t been published on WKTV yet, however if you’ve come across this page after seeing the portion that has been publshed and Googling “America 20xy” wondering where it came from, here is my full message to the people of CNY…

*****

The frog boils and the police state solidifies incrementally as Americans are trained like children to believe that the Muslim boogeymen are under their beds and that their paternal government needs to stick its hands in their pants and naked body scan their kids in order to protect them.

I’m sure that the people interviewed, and the reporter in this video are nice and sincere folks. However this is conditioning. The reality is that the top offices of our federal government have been hijacked by people using our military as hired muscle to overthrow foreign governments that don’t play ball with the Anglo-American Empire.

Abdumatalleb—the underwear bomber—was turned in to the CIA by his father as a potential terrorist before the near bombing event even happened. He was allegedly on the “terror watch list” but not only did they let him on the plane, he was helped onto it by a guy in a suit, according attorney Kurt Haskell, who was on the airplane Abdumatalleb tried to blow up and witnessed it. The feds hardly showed any interest in investigating this, however. The Director of the National Counter terrorism Center, Michael E. Leiter, said when he was speaking to the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee on January 20, 2010, “I will tell you, that when people come to the country and they are on the watch list, it is because we have generally made the choice that we want them here in the country for some reason or another.”

Former Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff is making money off the body scanners. (Google that) The purpose for this body scanner campaign isn’t just to make money though…it’s to train you to accept unreasonable search and seizure and keep you redrawing the line in regards to what you’re willing to put up with until you just give up.

As far as the alleged bin Laden killing is concerned, so far we’ve received no hard evidence that this took place on May 1st, 2011. We’re told his family is being held somewhere in Pakistan but we haven’t seen them. The story of the alleged raid has changed so much so quickly, and now it’s admitted that President Obusha didn’t even watch the raid happen, even though they staged a photo of his cabinet watching and released it as part of carefully planned narrative. The forensic evidence of the bin Laden kill was quickly dumped at sea, (allegedly) saying that it was part of Islamic custom even though it’s not…and as if the United States would really care about the religious dignity of its number one enemy. The alleged death photos are not going to be released, of course, either. The only thing that has been released is a video of an old man watching TV that we’re told is bin Laden, except for the fact he’s right-handed (bin Laden was left-handed, according to the FBI) his ears and cheekbones are different. His facial hair growth pattern is too.

Basically it’s a different guy.

The Pentagon is trying to carry America’s War of Terror from Afghanistan to Pakistan. (Go to Tarpley.net) . That’s what all of this is about. Even if you believe Muslims are out to get you, (despite the fact that you have a greater chance of dying from something mundane than a terror attack) we’ve been bombing North Waziristan with predator drones for years, callously wiping out entire villages and killing innocent women and children based on flimsy intel. One person dies here we freak out into 2 minute hate mode (read 1984) and become bloodthirsty. But if it happens to someone overseas in a country we haven’t even admitted we’re at war with…well that’s just collateral damage. Now that they say they’ve killed bin Laden they can exploit this pretend “treasure trove” of info they supposedly found at his compound to fear monger even more and justify police state legislation like the “Do Not Ride List” for trains proposed by our dear Senator Chuck Schumer (the already existing “Do Not Fly List” includes people who are not terrorists and whose only crime is speaking out against all of this…the government just wants this intimidation weapon to expand) and to manufacture justifications for future international conflicts. They can make up anything and say it came from this “treasure trove” and most people will just believe it and ignorantly march into another endless war.

Just like it’s been admitted now by Robert McNamra that the Gulf of Tonkin incident didn’t happen, but it was used by our government in order to get us deeper into Vietnam.

But we were attacked on 9/11 right? Doesn’t this justify everything happening now?

Sure we were attacked, but not by the people you think. Did bin Laden get steel framed skyscrapers– for the first and only time in history– to completely collapse because of fire? Look at WTC 7. It wasn’t even hit by an airplane. NIST says it fell because of fire but use your own common sense.




Did bin Laden get steel beams to shoot out from the towers over 500 feet and embed themselves in other buildings even though it was supposedly a gravitational collapse? Jet fuel doesn’t get hot enough to melt steel but pools of molten metal are documented being found at the base of the towers, and the fires at Ground Zero burned for weeks. Even with that, most of the jet fuel was spent in the huge fire balls that erupted from the sides of the buildings when the planes hit. The official story for why these buildings collapsed doesn’t match up with the realities of physics and there’s a lot more you can find out about this issue if you go to Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth’s website: http://www.ae911truth.org/

America in under a massive psy-op and we better stop living in fear and address this because we’re lost on a very dark path. I know we’re all good people deep down but we can’t afford to let this mass peer pressure campaign keep us silent because then it’s not going to stop. The historical norm for most governments in the world is tyranny, and what we had here in America was rare and precious. We must not let our rights be stripped away further because a bunch of criminals hijacked our government, blew up things, blamed it on brown skinned people, and then told you to trust them and give up your rights. We’re stronger people than that.

At least we used to be.

The Corporate State’s public image execution of Rashard Mendenhall

America 20xy

5/9/11

By Andrew Steele

Last week, after Americans ripped the last bit of meat off the bones of the alleged bin Laden kill, the herds turned their rage onto football star Rashard Mendenhall for tweeting his opinions regarding the death celebrations and his suspicions about the collapse of the Twin Towers on 9/11. Though Mendenhall’s words reflect the opinions of many Americans, because of his celebrity status the media control machine quickly jumped into action, making sure that his public image execution was swift and brutal, and that other celebrities who might consider speaking their minds about 9/11 and the moral decline of America get the message loud and clear– shut up and smile…you even think about mentioning this stuff, your name is dead.

As USA Today stated in a paragraph that sounds more like a threat than an insight:

“The Steelers have also run away from Mendenhall’s comments. Mendenhall issued a clarification Wednesday. But it didn’t help. Just more proof that athletes and celebrities should be careful before they hit the send button on their tweets.”

Though as words written on paper, the First Amendment remains in the books (for now), in reality the statist culture of 21st century America and the corporate media’s control over public perception neutralizes free speech through pysops (like the bin Laden “death”) and mass peer pressure. Like a wired piece of cheese that electrocutes the mouse that bites it, anyone who uses their free speech to express what the state deems “unpopular” opinion is imprisoned behind walls of manufactured public scorn. Though the government still occasionally gives lip service to constitutional rights of free speech (though less and less as time passes and as public indoctrination urging acceptance of the police state continues) the reality makers on TV and in newspapers have seized total control of a decadent mainstream American culture, turning it against anyone who dares to tell the truth.

People who question the official story of 9/11 have been featured as dangerous fictional villains on TV crime shows, have been falsely accused of supporting mass shooters by fake patriot mouthpieces like Glenn Beck, and associations with them have been portrayed as potentially criminal by vacant windbags like Bill O’Reilly. This is not by chance. It is part of a continuing media campaign designed to quarantine the 9/11 Truth Movement and squash any reasonable questions about the event that the general public may have before those questions catch fire and the nation’s common sense is reawakened.

This is why, in a country that quickly forgives athletes who abuse women and do drugs, one who dampens the jubilation of the bin Laden death celebrations by holding a mirror to America’s face, and who points out the obvious impossibility of the government’s explanation for the Twin Towers’ collapse, is essentially spat upon and crucified for all to see. As the intent of these image attacks become more obvious and more vicious…and as the lies and inconsistencies regarding events like 9/11 and the bin Laden “death” get bigger and bigger…the establishment shows its hand even more.

Years in the future Americans may look back on this period of history with a more critical eye as an era of darkness and deceit, however many who lived it will likely lie to their offspring and themselves about who they were during these years, secretly ashamed of their once narrow view of the world and their inability to acknowledge the reality of the situation in front of them until it became more popular to do so. The solace for people who tell the truth, like Rashard Mendenhall, is that they’ll have nothing to apologize for…not to the people overseas and at home who have died because of the American public’s willful retreat from reality (as well as their consciences’ surrender to brazen criminals), or to themselves for choosing to hide in the hollow embrace of acceptance by a culture that has now rebranded ignorance, death, and empire as “humanitarian” and patriotic.

That’s something more important than fame, and which no amount of money can ever buy.

White House won’t release bin Laden death photos…they know they’ve gone too far on this one

America 20xy

5/4/11

By Andrew Steele

According to the mainstream media, President Obama is not going to release any photos supporting the claim that Osama bin Laden died on May 1st, 2011. This statement was made during an interview for CBS’s show 60 Minutes which is going to air on Sunday.

On Tuesday, White House spokesman Jay Carney claimed that they were worried about “sensitivities” in making the decision of whether or to not release the photos– (the same “sensitivities” Obama worries about when having people tortured overseas and while drone bombing villages, murdering scores of innocent people?).

Trying to backup the White House and keep the people from pushing back against the smoke machine that is the modern U.S. government, some lawmakers claim to have seen the photos, supporting the president’s retreat from the demands of the public by asserting that their release will put our soldiers– who are fighting in endless, illegal wars overseas– in more harm than they’re already in because of a destructive U.S. foreign policy.

“I don’t want to make the job of our troops serving in places like Iraq and Afghanistan any harder than it already is,” said Rep. Mike Rogers, who is the chair of the House Intelligence Committee. “The risks of release outweigh the benefits. Conspiracy theorists around the world will just claim the photos are doctored anyway, and there is a real risk that releasing the photos will only serve to inflame public opinion in the Middle East.”

In reality, the military/political establishment realizes that they’ve gone too far with this particular lie, questioning the intelligence of the American people by suddenly claiming that, as the 2012 election begins, Obama took out America’s boogeyman and then, after ten years of fear mongering propaganda and endless searching, the U.S. government quickly dropped the body in the ocean because they cared about respecting the religious traditions of their most hated enemy. This notion is ridiculous on its face, and the public is correct to suspect a cover up.

Obama says White House won’t release Osama bin Laden photos

“No” on the death photos? How about releasing the burial at sea video?

America 20xy

5/4/11

By Andrew Steele

Earlier today it was announced that the White House is not releasing the bin Laden death photos, with the “official” reason being concern over “sensitivities” and the worry that the supposedly gory pictures may enflame Muslims, putting our troops who are engaged in illegal wars overseas in more jeopardy.

Days ago, as the media and the White House discussed the possibility that the death photos might be released, the possibility that the burial at sea video might be released was also mentioned. While the White House is trying to cower behind its flimsy excuse of concern over Muslim outrage to justify not releasing the death photos, this excuse doesn’t provide any justification for not showing bin Laden wrapped in a sheet and being eased into the water, as news reports indicate happened. After all, if the burial were truly done in respect of Islamic tradition, wouldn’t such an image actually make us seem more respectable to Muslims?

The President needs to address the burial video as well as the death photos, since his excuse doesn’t apply to this important piece of alleged documentation. There would be nothing gruesome in this evidence since the body was supposedly covered. The longer Obama waits to release this video (if he ever does)…the more time passes…the more people will believe that it’s a fake.

And justifiably so.

Pentagon planned to move many drones from Pakistan to Libya and Pacific Command before Bin Laden’s “official” death

America 20xy

5/2/11

By Andrew Steele

Prior to the news that the United States had allegedly killed Osama Bin Laden on the already notorious day of May 1st, reports were coming out that the Pentagon was planning to move its predator drones out of Pakistan 1) to assist the takeover of Libya, and 2) to move into the Pacific to monitor China’s building forces, as well as protect Taiwan against China in the event of a surprise attack. Predators and Reapers will also be stationed in Japan and South Korea, providing more “persistent” coverage of the Chinese coasts.

Already U.S. Global Hawk drones have been flying over Japan to survey the quake damage. Prior to the earthquake in Japan, China had announced a 12.7 percent hike in its defense budget, causing Japanese leadership to push for a strengthening of its forces in the southwestern Okinawan islands. Many in Japan feared that the United States would be unable to defend the country from China if conflict arose. Japan has faced intrusions of its airspace by China in the past, as well as an incident over a coastguard ship that was hit by a Chinese trawler near the Senkaku islands. The Japanese arrested the Chinese captain and China detained members of a Japanese construction company that were working in China. China also halted its rare earth mineral exports to Japan as a negotiation weapon.

Earlier in the year Chinese workers living in Libya fought with looters in an uprising that the CIA and MI6 have been involved with even before the U.S. and its allies “officially” intervened. The rebels attacked at least 27 Chinese work camps. Over 30,000 Chinese workers were evacuated from Libya and Chinese companies were forced to suspend projects worth billions of dollars.

On the night of Bin Laden’s alleged death, cable news networks were talking politics, using the line “Obama got Osama” and speculating about how this will help the president’s re-election campaign. Ten years of police state legislation has been secured as law by a corrupt and mostly useless Congress. Thus the false flag event of 9/11 has had its desired effect.

With preparations ready to move the United States’ drones from Pakistan to stare down China even before Bin Laden was unthawed and then shelved as the national boogeyman, the question should be asked– is the U.S. wrapping up the outdated story of the “War on Terror” in preparation for a new one?

Known Liars Saying “Trust Us” is Not Proof

5/2/11

By Andrew Steele

On May 1st the American people were told that Osama Bin Laden had been killed and that his body was conveniently lying at the bottom of the ocean, while the compound he was allegedly killed in has been burned. The “burial at sea” was described as being in line Islamic tradition, though ABC News has admitted that such a custom is not part of Islamic tradition, and it has not been explained why a U.S. government that tortures Muslims and throws them into black holes for years without trial would suddenly care about the religious dignity of their supposed number one enemy.

Given the fact that the U.S. government has admittedly lied numerous times to its people when it comes to war (and just about everything else), it would seem that a legitimate killing of Osama Bin Laden on May 1st, 2011 would yield an offering of conclusive proof to the people that the deed was done just as the uniforms say it was. As more people now question the official story of 9/11, offering the body up for an independent investigation outside the government’s clutches would have been an easy way to alleviate any “conspiracy theories” regarding Bin Laden’s real fate. In the days of Photoshop and special effects, politicians and military men offering pictures (which at the time of this writing they’re debating whether or not they’ll even show…new ones, not the fake one that’s already been put out and debunked) and “DNA” evidence (which could have been taken at any time in the past) without outside verification means nothing . To believe that the globalist mafia behind Bush and now Obama has earned the benefit of the doubt is as laughable as the notion that fire brought down this building.



The question isn’t so much whether or not Bin Laden is still alive, as many smarmy pundits on TV indicate when doing their pre-emptive strike on “conspiracy theorists”, knowing that the government would be called out for its quick destruction of evidence. In all likelihood Bin Laden died years ago, his memory kept alive only by a vast media/government propaganda machine using the illusion of his continued existence as a fear generator for a 9/11 psyoped public. Rather the question is whether or not this was a fake ”Wag the Dog” event designed to boost the popularity of an increasingly unpopular president before an election, and/or to bring closure to the “War on Terror” narrative so that the U.S. can move onto the next stage of a larger global empire plan.

The U.S. government has not proven anything happened on May 1st other than a building burned down in Pakistan. Right from the moment the story broke the media cogs aligned perfectly to control the narrative and send the message to the viewer that everyone believes the boogeyman died that day, and that if you question the lie then you’re alone. Bloodthirsty Americans have been shown doing their real life “Two Minute Hate”, celebrating as if it’s VJ Day (despite the fact that war hasn’t ended) while critical analysis has been brushed aside.

In reality, those questioning this obvious hoax are not alone. News stories on the net that allow comments are filled with those calling the U.S. government on its lie. This is a time for truth tellers not to retreat but to step forward and shove their collective finger into the U.S. government’s face.

Known liars saying “trust us” is not proof. Even if some people have been brainwashed, many more are beginning to smell a rat. Instead of bringing closure to the 9/11 false flag event Obama has blown open a new can of worms with his dismissive conclusion to the Bin Laden death story, and the starkly apparent timing of it. If the powers that be believe that this will put to rest the controversy surrounding 9/11, they have another thing coming. No doubt, if such an announcement had been made in the Soviet Union, we here in the West would have rolled our eyes and said, “yeah right”.
