So says Obama even as he makes threats that checks to Social Security beneficiaries and military veterans would cease and maybe trigger a global economic crisis.unless we increase the debt ceiling. I think we’ve heard all of that talk before.
There is also talk about invoking the 14th amendment. Let’s take a look at what that says.
Section 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.
If I’m a lawyer I’m going with the illegal and void part because any interest paid to the federal reserve, all bailouts to banks, criminal illegal wars for profiteers and Israel and any number of other debts could legitimately be called insurrection or rebellion against the United States if we define the US as ‘we the people.’
It’s worth repeating that much of the US debt is odious debt,
In international law, odious debt is a legal theory that holds that the national debt incurred by a regime for purposes that do not serve the best interests of the nation, should not be enforceable. Such debts are, thus, considered by this doctrine to be personal debts of the regime that incurred them and not debts of the state. In some respects, the concept is analogous to the invalidity of contracts signed under coercion.
Of course no one in any position of power is going to agree with that analysis. They work for the insurrection.
No, we should not be a deadbeat`nation. Neither should we be a war pig, war whore nation but we are. A government that kills its own in false flag attacks, that attempts to spy on all of its citizens and portrays them as an enemy, that forces the common people to pay tribute to bankers and calls it income tax is not legitimate.
A government that has as one of its major purposes to divide the population against one another to make them easier to control and steal from them is especially odious…another word for extremely repulsive.
As if we don’t have enough on our plate, Leon Panetta, speaking for the administration, has pledged to help the French who are fighting Islamist militants in Mali, and that assistance could include air and other logistical support. Just who is supporting Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, or AQIM in Mali? The controlled media says they are funding themselves through kidnappings. If the truth be known it is the US, Saudis and the financial thugs looking for more money…as always.
Wherever they conjure the ghost of an imaginary “Al-Qaeda-linked” local terrorist outfit, it is the next stop in the Pentagon plan for a worldwide commando war (something I have referred to as “limited World War III“).
In changing strategies from fighting conventional wars to fighting guerilla warfare instead, the Joint Chiefs and their co-conspirators have in fact, initiated a worldwide terrorist operation, run largely by the CIA, which has been responsible for training 99% of all Sunni “Islamist” terrorists active in the world today, or during the past thirty years (SEE: UN Security Council Unanimously Approves Another Armed Intervention Against Another American “Islamist” Terror).
The CIA is also prosecuting a war of negative information as a second prong in America’s multi-prong offensive. This negative information is shaped specifically to counter local information or beliefs, in order to alter those local and national patterns of communication and to replace them with new CIA created “facts.” In a blatent and explicit trampling of Congressional authority (specifically, Smith-Mundt Act barring CIA or military from broadcasting such propaganda at the people of the United States), all Western media has been transformed into instruments for transmitting CIA disinformation to Western augiences, accomplished either by military-friendly corporate takeovers, or CIA and military “liasing” with news bureaus, or outright government censorship.
This militarizing of the national news of all Western countries has made all news suspect to any discerning reader or viewer, but it has had the opposite effect on the majority of all Westerners, reinforcing their adolescent views and opinions on world-shattering news and events happening all around them, nearly every single day. The majority of us are thrilled to worship at the altar of “nightly news,” trusting them to keep un informed. We sleep soundly at nights, knowing in our hearts that they are there serving as the “watchdogs” of freedom.
This is how the Imperialist powers get away with their terrorism and assorted criminal activities. The majority of the people are willfully blind to such facts and their ears are plugged to anyone speaking the truth of such earth-shaping events. That is how the Pentagon can slowly, over a period of 3-5 years, turn a mildly warlike country like Mali into a new battle ground for fighting a small-scale “world war,” involving trouble-making egotist neo-Fascist European regimes and American air power. All of the current crisis events in Mali have been engineered by American Special Forces “Civil Affairs” trainers, who have been there since some time in 2007, allegedly on a “humanitarian mission.”] more – Peter Chamberlin
Then there’s Syria as a gateway to World War III. Odious debt be damned. Arm the torpedoes…..
From Vietnam to today…it’s what we know…..and are

No place in America is safe from dangerous people armed with guns. Not elementary schools or universities. Not playgrounds or churches. Not malls or movie theaters.
