Barry says an attack on Syria is a go. But first let’s have a debate in Congress so they can vote as Israel tells them to. Money and threats of blackmail are now being offered.
Right makes might. It’s the American way. So what if it’s all lies? When psychopaths rule and do the bidding of their masters…there is no will of the people.
Speech starts @ 2 Minute mark.
– ‘overwhelming evidence’
– Blamed Assad off the bat
– Citing dead children to appeal to emotion
– These attacks ‘Harms our National Security’
– Possibility of ‘Assad giving weapons to terrorists’
– United states IS going to take strikes
– ‘No boots on the ground’
– ‘Limited duration and scope’
– The US needs to ‘hold Assad Accountable’
– We are prepared to strike ‘whenever we choose’
– Not time sensative, but prepared,
– President calls our form of gov’t a ‘constitutional DEMOCRACY’
– He WILL seek authorization for use of force from congress
– Spoke with the 4 congressional leaders to schedule that ‘hearing’
– Comfortable with going forward WITHOUT UN, citing them being ‘paralyzed’
– Obama is mad about UK not supporting
– He then cites that he has the ‘authority’ to start a war without authorization
– A few closing quotes
‘We must acknowledge the costs of doing nothing’
‘What message would we send if we do nothing while children are being gassed!?’
‘I know well we are weary of war… that’s why we are only going to pressure Assad regime… After WWII, We built an international order to establish peace, so I ask you congress to take a vote FOR authorization of force to keep the peace’.
WASHINGTON, DC – House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) today issued the following joint statement.
|The American people say NO!|
“Under the Constitution, the responsibility to declare war lies with Congress. We are glad the president is seeking authorization for any military action in Syria in response to serious, substantive questions being raised. In consultation with the president, we expect the House to consider a measure the week of September 9th. This provides the president time to make his case to Congress and the American people.”
The Israeli-neocon 9/11 coup d’état allowed the pro-destabilization, Zionist faction of the US elite to seize the reins of power. Since then we’ve seen the implementation of the Destabilization Doctrine.
Many are naively asking “will it be the al-Qaeda affiliated opposition or President Assad’s government who will rule Syria?” From the perspective of the Zionist West the answer is neither. Israelocentric policy makers don’t want there to be a “Syria” to be ruled at the end of this chapter of history. It is the balkanization of the Middle East into microstates which is the long term goal, as expressed by Oded Yinon and his acolytes.
Certain Neocons have effectively argued for the Rothschildesque backing of both sides in Syria to perpetuate the carnage to the benefit of Israel. Neocon guru Daniel Pipes in a recently televised interview contended that in Syria the West should “keep them fighting each other,” adding “we are best off strategically when they are focused on each other.” This supports the contention that the Zionists want nobody to rule Syria. They want nobody to rule Iraq. They want nobody to rule Iran. They want sectarian civil war and carnage so Arabs, Persians and Muslims are fighting each other rather than the Zionist cuckoo in the nest. more
The crisis in Syria could possibly become totally out of control if the US takes direct interventionist measures. We can only imagine the chaos that could arise. What will Russia do?
The Sunday talking head warmongers have been doing their best to please their masters by interviewing every crazed psychopath they can get to come on their lie machine. My own senator, the inhuman Bob Corker, is calling for action now.
Assad is allowing UN inspectors to go to the site of the false flag chemical attack but an unnamed US official says ‘it’s too late baby now it’s too late,’ Syria’s credibility is shot and there was little doubt the government was to blame. Obama and Cameron have been plotting. They want Iran too and are a danger to the world.
So is there anything we the people can do? We have not stopped the push to war at all for the last hundred years. At the best it has only been slowed down a bit. The ‘seven countries in five years,’ the Oded Yinon plan and ‘A Clean Break’ are behind schedule. The PNAC manifesto is still a work in progress.
The anti-war left is dead. There will be little protesting in the streets but for what it may be worth there needs to be although a few ‘domestic terrorist’ events may be necessary to to put an end to any peacenik endeavors
The neocons, bankers and Israeli vampires are baring their blood stained fangs.
Israel wants the fall of Hezbollah so that Lebanon will be any easy take and guess what, they have Al Qaeda on their side. AIPAC is pushing some buttons with more ‘oh my god’ rhetoric that “Dozens of Holocaust survivors came very close to being struck by one of the four Katyeusha rockets fired at Israel from southern Lebanon on Thursday.” How come these little bottle rockets always miss? I’ll give you one guess. The Sinai is another prize the Israelis want and a big distraction would come in handy.
Are the christian zionist end-timers having an orgasm right about now? That’s a sick thought but we are dealing with sickness here. Praise the Lord and pass the nuclear weapons.
It is all lies all the time and there are no pretty words to spin what is happening.
Rocker may sum it up…
I just want to be on record before the fact as a human being of planet earth and citizen of the criminal AmeriKan regime that I preemptively condemn the actions that are being telegraphed, and damn to hell for all eternity Obama and his coterie of War Cabinet criminals.
What is amazing to me is the insane psychopaths making policy think that they will be able to carry out a three-month bombing campaign with absolutely no consequences with Russia, China, and Iran.
Of course, WWIII is exactly what they have been working on and this will simply be the last act that will make it official in the official narrative of history. Only one problem. The “good guys” are going to lose this one.
We do want to stop the carnage in the middle east but we also need to admit to ourselves that we have selfish interests in this. If you want inflation/deflation, the destruction of both the middle class and the poor and the downfall of the US, by all means shout from the rooftops to attack Syria now. If you like the thought of World War III, tell your politicians now to get on with the program. But if you cherish your life, those of your family and friends as well as millions of others all over the world, something needs to be done. Is it too late? Maybe cooler heads will prevail and perhaps this Syria thing is a lot of fear-mongering but for all practical purposes it may be out of our hands. Judging by our past failures, it is.
It seems as if I’ve been fighting poison ivy all my life.
You can pull it, dig it, burn it, herbicide it but it always comes back.
The victories in the battles are only temporary. Vigilance is a necessity. Turn your attention elsewhere for too long and it overtakes.
The analogies of poison ivy to our society and culture are many and varied. Mind poison invades and creeps into every crevice it is allowed to take hold. Words against it are only a partial solution. You dig it out and remain watchful or it destroys, slowly but surely.
Syria is the latest poison du jour. Lies are slopped onto our plates and we are expected to eat it and like it and ask for more. To question the ingredients leaves one open to ridicule, accusations of anti-American, anti-semite, conspiracy theorist and even terrorist. You can turn off the tv and ignore the propaganda but it doesn’t go away. The poison will eventually affect each of us exactly as it always has.
Locally we all have to deal with invasive poisons. Militarization of the police force is one. Indoctrination of little kids with agendas not of their making is another. The ACLU is pressuring a middle school, 3rd through 8th grades, to put back up a poster saying this is a safe space for all the little LGBT children there. I can hear a 3rd grader asking the teacher, “Am I gay? Do I need to go to my safe space now?”
I’m all for education on these matters but perhaps the setting should be agreed upon by the parents and not mandated by outsiders.
How about a ‘Propaganda Free Zone?’ A safe space where students can go to get away from the deluge of social engineering and lies of textbook history. A place where war is not peace, where freedom is not slavery, where ignorance is not strength. A place where creativity, objectivity and truth are what matters.
A place where poison ivy does not grow.
For those who never got to see Linda Ronstadt live, let me just say that her voice could fill an auditorium like few others. Her announcement that she has Parkinson’s disease is cause for reflection. Here’s my favorite song by Linda.
American Empire again strikes at Middle East with Egyptian coup
One again…”Empire Strikes Back!”
Egypt like most of the “Third World” has been suffering because of the neoliberal, capitalist policies thrust upon them by Western countries over the past century.
Two years ago, the Egyptian people rose up, threw out their Western-propped dictator and elected Islamically oriented President Mohamed Morsi.
Morsi turned out to be a huge disappointment as he continued existing capitalist policies (but added an Islamic flavor to them) that still oppressed the Egyptian people while enriching multi-national corporations.
If democracy had been allowed to work its evolutionary course, the Egyptian people would have eventually replaced their foreign-imposed capitalist system with one that works for its people.
But before that could happen the Egyptian military, beholden to the United States through the $1.5 billion in foreign aid it receives annually, seized power in a violent coup d’etat this month, butchering thousands of Egyptians in the process and ensuring the continuation of neoliberal capitalism in the largest Arab country in the resource-rich Middle East.
As Brian Becker of the Answer Coalition recently said: “It may be Egyptian soldiers that are pulling the trigger, but the guns, the bullets and the bombs are paid for by the Washington government and our tax dollars.”
It’s a shame that U.S. politicans and gullible Americans are always accusing Muslims in America of “imposing Shariah law” here when in fact it is our government using our tax dollars that is violently imposing neoliberal capitalist law and disorder around the world to satiate American Empire.
Salina is the only local Muslim I know of who dares to put into writing some of the same thoughts that many of us have. The above letter to he editor was published in the Daily News Journal but guess what, at the same time they also published a screed from an islamophobe. In the spirit of ‘fair and balanced’ I suppose. .
Salina also doesn’t shy away from calling out some of the leaders of her religion.
—An imam of national standing organized a “Global Qiyam (prayer) for the People of Syria” in May but has never condemned the U.S. government or Middle East monarchies for equipping the foreign fighters who have brought death and destruction to Syria for over two years now. What a missed opportunity to expose the hypocrisy of the West’s War on Terror!
She is not afraid to state the obvious about 9/11 although this quote from a letter to the DNJ seems to have been removed.
“The truth is Muslims were not behind 9/11.”
A line from an old song of mine comes to mind.
“Just stay in your place and maybe you’ll be safe.”
Staying ‘safe’ doesn’t always aid in promoting truth and positive change. We need a few more Salinas in the Muslim community as well as an outpouring of courage from the rest of us. It’s too late for ‘safe.’ We passed that point a long long time ago.
I’ve recently published a new novel, Your Love Incomplete, and I’m offering it as a free download. I decided to offer for free because I feel charging for it would seriously limit its readership.
Here is the link:
The story follows a Silicon Valley internet marketer mildly obsessed with conspiracy theories and the shift that occurs within him after he encounters an esoterically oriented friend of his father.
So often in our media the person interested in the non-official version of history is portrayed as unbalanced, but in Your Love Incomplete conspiratorial thinking is the catalyst for the main characters journey to spiritual awakening.
There is a strong anarchist flavor to the book, it goes under the hood of the online marketing world and there is plenty of esotericism as the story carries the main character from the SF Bay Area, to New York City, Spain and the Russian Far East.
This is the tale of someone who woke up to the Matrix, but not until he lost everything and wound up in a very strange land. I think this story will resonate with many of the who follow Smoking Mirrors and The Red Lion, which I discovered here, was a big inspiration. I offer it as my contribution to that transformation we are all seeking.
I hope you enjoy it and all the best.
It’s fiction but from what I’ve read so far it’s an interesting read and it’s a free download which is always a plus.
Where have I been all these years? I’ve never even heard of Marina. It’s a learning process. Better late than never. Thank you gaga for enlightening us.
Forget the wars, the crimes against humanity, the surveillance state. Gaga’s new album is coming soon and all is well. Please play a concert in Israel gaga and show those boycotters where to shove it. What a wonderful world.
Now where can I get those cool blindfolds?
There is no law beyond

The great kids game is again tarnished. The very rich think they can do what they will. Now can we do something with other New York scammers and criminals, Jamie Dimon, Lloyd Blankfein, etc? Not to excuse Alex Rodriguez, but they make him look like a choir boy.
While on the subject of drugs…..
“by a New York specialist”
1. Afraid to experiment with anything, lest…
2. Enslaved by anything that appeals to them.
3. Able to use anything without damaging themselves.
It is possible, perhaps even probable, that for a month or two there would be an increase in the number of fools who killed themselves in their folly, though personally I doubt it. But I have no shame in saying that, after a war in which we sent our sturdiest sons as sheep to the slaughter, we should not miss a few score wasters too stupid to know when to stop. Besides this, we see, on the one hand, that the people who want the drugs manage to get them in one way or another, at the cost of time, trouble, and money which might be used more wisely, and on the other that the infernal suggestions of the Press, and the vile venality of the villains attracted to the traffic by the immense profits, are deliberately creating new addicts every day of people who in the normal course of affairs would no more think of indulging in narcotics than a cat in a cold bath.
