US Senate to Declare “International Martial Law” — Give President “Unlimited” Military Powers

ObamaConstitutionBy Justin Gardner

The U.S. Senate is poised to give President Obama and the next president unprecedented war powers that amount to declaring martial law upon the entire world. Majority leader Mitch McConnell surprised almost everyone last week by saying he has a war resolution ready to be voted on at any time.

The resolution is a new authorization for use of military force (AUMF) for declaring war on ISIS. It would give the president even more power than the AUMF granted to Bush after 9/11, which is still in place today.

The AUMF put forward by McConnell would not restrict the president’s use of ground troops, nor have any limits related to time or geography. Nor would it touch on the issue of what to do with the 2001 AUMF, which the Obama administration has used to attack ISIS despite that authorization’s instructions to use force against those who planned the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Considering what Bush and Obama did with the 2001 AUMF—invading and occupying countries in “pre-emptive” war, CIA black sites, extrajudicial killings, inventing the term “enemy combatants” to bypass international law, new forms of torture, drone bombing women and children, and assassinating U.S. citizens—the specter of a new and expanded AUMF is truly frightening.

“This resolution is a total rewrite of the War Powers Clause in the U.S. Constitution,” said Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn). “It is essentially a declaration of international martial law, a sweeping transfer of military power to the president that will allow him or her to send U.S. troops almost anywhere in the world, for almost any reason, with absolutely no limitations.”

McConnell’s resolution is more than what Obama asked for last year, but this is of little relevance since Obama has been carrying out a war against ISIS, including the use of special forces, with no authorization. The administration has refused to put forward a legal framework, insisting that the 2001 AUMF is enough.

As the New York Times pointed out, ISIS was created long after 9/11 and is actually a competitor to al Qaida, which means that Obama’s war on ISIS is not justified under the 2001 AUMF. Even members of Congress recognize that current military operations have no legal basis.

“I believe the war is illegal,” said Sen. Tim Kaine. “I don’t think there’s a legal justification for it. And I think the greatest danger we end up doing is allowing the president to wage a war without Congress weighing in.”

Using this rationale, Kaine and others in Congress are thrilled to know that a new AUMF could be voted on at any time. Some would prefer more restrictions, but the bottom line is that it represents and abdication of constitutional duties that would give vast military powers to one person.

Sen. John Cornyn expressed the usual platitudes in cheering for the vote, saying “the people we send in harm’s way need to know that the country is behind them” and “we also don’t need to tie the hands of the next president by restricting what the president can do.”

For some lawmakers, it’s more about giving the next president unlimited power than it is about Obama. McConnell’s about-face from December, when he expressed no interest in voting on an AUMF, may also be a ploy to make the issue a major talking point in the presidential election. There’s nothing like talk of war to whip up fear in the masses and distract them from substantive issues.

It is no coincidence that just days ago, Defense Secretary Ash Carter said about the fight against ISIS, “We’re looking for opportunities to do more and there will be boots on the ground and I want to be clear about that.”

Since ISIS is partially a product of American intervention in the Middle East, being cultivated from the Salafist sect to foment regime change in Syria, “boots on the ground” would complete another cycle for the merchants of death and destruction. The Hegelian Dialectic—create the problem, stoke the reaction, offer the solution—is a tried and true method for endless war.

We have already seen the extremely tenuous connections that war-makers use to justify their death and destruction waged around the world and on their own people. McConnell’s AUMF would clear away any feeble barriers that still stand in the way of a military dictatorship.

    “The world is still full of Magic. The magic power of Love still exercises its influence over the hearts; the magic of Imagination still makes men mournful or glad; the Will of the strong still controls by its magic power the mind of the weak, and the foolish are still ruled by the superior magic power of the spirit of those who are wise; but such wonders like that of the growth of a tree, do not surprise us, merely because we are accustomed to witness them everyday.”

      “Men are prone to jump at
      conclusions drawn from sensual observation and to regard the visible side of nature as the actual world and to reject that which is beyond sensual perception but even a superficial reflection will convince man that the terms visible and invisible are merely relative; for whether or not a thing may be seen by us, depends not merely on its own nature, but also on the construction and quality of the organs of our perception. What may be seen by one, may be invisible to another who is devoid of the organ of sight and what may be invisible to many, may be visible to those whose inner powers of perception have become open.”

    If the instructions are to use force against those who planned 9-11 then Israel would be nuked till it turned into glass and Bush/Cheney and their corrupt pals would be up against a firing squad.

    • I prefer the noose, but hey…

    • Before 9/11, Nick Rockefeller told Aaron Russo a major attack would take place and it would launch a never ending war. Rockefeller laughed about phantom perpetrators being chased in caves in Afghanistan. 9/11 was the work of the INTERNATIONAL BANKSTERS – the neocons, CIA, Mossad, Pakistan ISI, and the Democrat Neoliberals are all minions.

      • Yes sir, they are.

I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spend most of my time being a high class muscle-man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.”

        • A great book! And NO school will have it on the reading list. The American people are in shock right now. They’ve been learning that America is EXACTLY the opposite of what it has claimed to be, while it’s people still hold up that made-up ideal image as the standard to aim for. I think most Americans never encountered the thought until recently. It takes some adapting, some grieving. Then it had better take some THOUGHT… and some ACTION! We’re running out of – well, out of air, food, water; time.

          • It was Rockefeller who announced ‘we don’t want a nation of thinkers but a nation of workers’ around 1903 when he began financing ‘public education’ I think with a $100 million dollar donation. Any coincidence that for generations we’ve been dumbed down, directly by the federal re-education boot camps known as public schools? Hardly, it’s all been engineered by the elite

            Well said.

        • I picked up his book about 7 years ago and although it is a very short read, less than 40 pages, it was a truly profound moment in my life. It opened it all up to me, and I haven’t stopped reading since. Every truth seeker should read this book as a starting point to a truly eye opening moment. Next I’d advise Perpetual War for Perpetual Peace, published around 1953.

  7. McConnell’s AUMF would clear away any feeble barriers that still stand in the way of a military dictatorship.

    There you have it folks — the reason for doing this. It has NOTHING to do with keeping America safe. This will give Obama the ability to declare Martial Law and stop the election.

    • This about the next President. It has nothing to do with declaring Martial Law in the US and stopping elections, which would cause a massive revolt, not really what Obama wants. This is a Republican plan to empower the next President.

      • Do you think that the Republicans in Congress still care what the American people want? They have shown themselves to be two sides of the same coin for the past eight years and it has NOTHING to do with taking care of the people. I will point to the last spending bill that they gave to Obama as absolute proof that the Republicans care as little about the people as the Democrats. BOTH sides are pushing for Satan’s one world government and most of the American public seem to be blind to the truth. The ones who really run this country don’t care who is President as long as they can take freedom away from Americans and this is just another ploy to do that! Do you realize that under Martial Law the government has given itself the right to take EVERYTHING that EVERYBODY owns. They already have foreign troops on US soil. Remember the Jade Helm exercises? They were just preparing for the takeover and they will use foreign troops to do it. It’s said that ignorance is bliss and it must be with so many so willing to give away this country without a second thought. I prefer to hang on to what I have worked so hard for all my life and giving this President the so-called legal authority to take it from me does not sit well with me!

        • I know that Jade Help took over Texas and has imprisoned all dissidents. And now the alien reptiles have taken over our brain cells! I too am unhappy about this.

          • More sarcasm? It’s a proven psychological fact that the bigger the conspiracy the harder it is for people to believe it even when it’s the truth. The reason is that people do not “want” to believe that things they have believed all their lives could be false — like the government is looking out for the people. No one “wants” to believe that the government is selling the people down the river so they deny evidence right before their eyes. That’s okay — you’ll be allowed to think what you want for a LITTLE longer!

          • Yes, when the narrative is so full of lies, only sarcasm can express the truth.

            ARe you aware that lunatic conspiracy theories are designed to poison the well of evidence based allegations?

          • Like climate change caused by man? Of course the earth never had any other climate changes in millions of years — right? There’s proof that the North African deserts used to be tropical paradises thousands of years ago, but (hold onto your hat) the earth shifts and causes climate changes! Exactly how did “man” cause these changes thousands of years ago? It’s just another excuse for the US and the UN to steal more wealth from the little guy.

            Did you know that the US government is allowing Arabs to buy up thousands of acres right on the waterways that furnish water to states like California with no restricting on how much water they use. They’re growing crops here to ship back to Saudi Arabia and our aquifers are getting depleted in the meantime so that thousands of Americans will starve instead. Just another way that the US government is looking out for the people!

          • You seem brainwashed; I see no chance of a rational discussion.

          • If you think that Agenda 21, Agenda 30 and deliberate depopulation of the earth is a good idea — then there is nothing to discuss!

          • My last attempt to have a rational discussion with you:

            Agenda 21 seeks a sustainable world; its proposals for reducing high fertility rates and starvation for the poorest populations is
            1. create economic security for populations who, when they have it, voluntarily reduce birth rates.
            2. provide birth control to those who do not have access, often teenagers in poor countries.

            Do you have objections to raising standards of living and providing birth control to create motivation and means to reduce high ferttlity rates, where half the children die? Do you object to creating economic conditions where people voluntarily reduce birth rate to replacement or below replacement levels as in all prosperous nations? If you can give rational answers to these questions, which characterize the proposals of Agenda 21, we can discuss. If you cannot, don’t waste my time.

          • Do YOU realize that you could take every dime of wealth in America and it wouldn’t put a dent in world poverty? That information came from National Geographic. What do they want to do. Make everyone equally poor? People in the US have been sending billions to Africa for years already of there own free will. They don’t need the US and the UN taking more.

            Did you know that in 2007 Obama was co-sponsoring a bill for the US to give the UN $800 billion to help world poverty. The crash of 2008 put an end to that farse. The UN is one of the most crooked organizations on this earth or didn’t you ever hear of the oil for food scam they had going with Saddam in Iraq. Un officials were raking off millions and so was Saddam. The people never got any food! Most of the $800 billion from the US would have ended up in somebody’s pocket too. You can bet on it!

            Agenda 21 is like Obamacare — you have to read it to know what’s in it. I did read parts and I did NOT like what I saw. You are living in a dream world if you think their intentions are all benign!

          • I asked for answers to my questions. I assume you cannot answer them. Game over!

            “”According to IBD, the bipartisan bill would require the president “to develop and implement a comprehensive strategy to further the U.S. foreign policy objective of promoting the reduction of global poverty, the elimination of extreme global poverty and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goal of reducing by one-half the proportion of people worldwide between 1990 and 2015, who live on less than $1 per day.”

            The “Millennium Development Goal” refers to a United Nations declaration adopted by the U.N. Millennium Assembly and Summit in 2000 that calls for “the eradication of poverty” by “redistribution (of) wealth and land,” cancellation of “the debts of developing countries” and “a fair distribution of the earth’s resources.”

            For the last time, and then I will leave you to your ranting, do you support programs to reduce poverty and thereby reduce high ferility rates of the world’s poorest people who live on $1 a day.

            Either answer this question or consider our conversation ended by default.

            –Edward Cline, Obama’s Global Poverty Act

          • Honestly, I find it hard to believe that anyone today believes that the United Nations cares about any of the things you seem to think they are about. And I understand how thoughtful people might get sucked into this ‘rainbows and unicorns Utopian theory’, but nothing could be further from the truth. Are you aware of it’s history? That the same billionaires behind all wars, all oppression, pretty much all famines, rape and pillage of every nation’s natural resources, were behind the formation of the UN? Or many of the others like the IMF, IBS, CFR, WHO, NATO, ad naseum?
            The UN is only, exclusively, the Globalist’s tool for a one world, global Plantation. Yes they hide it well, and I understand how easy it is for caring people to buy into the concept that they’re some benevolent wonderful organization determined to bring about world peace, end hunger, end poverty, end sexism, end racism, save the planet from global warming, on and on but the real truth is that THEY WORK FOR THE SAME PEOPLE responsible for all it’s misery.
            The Only wealth redistribution coming will be done to enrich the 1/10th of the one percent.
            All of their claims of spreading joy and happiness and peace and prosperity are all propaganda lies.
            Stop believing in fairy tales, it’s all about money, power, and control, it always has been, and most likely always will be, sorry to say.

          • Couldn’t have said it better myself.

          • William Burke | January 25, 2016 at 6:03 pm |

            Ugh! You again.

          • Thank you for your civllity and brilliant analysis.

        • Jade Helm was about strengthening the Police forces that are government aligned and willing to go up against the American people and deliver them up.

          • And part of that is having foreign troops on our soil because the Constitution forbids it. Of course if we go under Martial Law the Constitution is suspended and the government thinks it can do whatever it wants to the American people!

        • This is a global thing, friend. Here in Australia, our government will follow and support anything that the USA does. Its that simple. And then it happens here, too…

      • And setting Iran (Persia) free has nothing to do with Satan sitting on the throne? We are in the greatest deceptions the world has ever known..

        • US, Israeli, and UN intelligence confirms Iran had no nuclear weapons program; the money they are getting back is their own money. Satan is lying to you, and convincing you he is the Truth.

          All nations deserve freedom. The greatest deceptions included the lies that were used to justify killing 3 million in Vietnam, half a million in Iraq.

          Please stop believing the lies Satan is telling you. The biggest lie is that Satan exists.

          • It’s strange that people will believe that there are men on earth who want a one world order and not believe what the Bible says about Satan’s one world government or that Satan exists. That makes me wonder IF you believe in God either?

            Another question is how is the money we are giving to Iran THEIR money that we are just giving back? If that is the case then it should never have been reported that we are “giving” them money, but only “returning” their money. The world thinks that we bought back our hostages that they took with OUR money and other countries are now taking hostages like Korea.

          • It’s strange that people believe in stories written thousands of years ago about talking snakes and a strange God who kills children.

            The money given back to Iran as frozen assets that belonged to them.
            In fact, we are returning their money.

          • He supports the UN, Agenda 21 and 2030, totalitarian Technocracy, mandatory vaccinations, climate change psy ops, et al. He’s an SPLC disinfo operative. He won’t tell you Iran is part of the NWO, their elites implementing the NWO IMF bankster structural reforms in the late 90s following the Iran-Iraq war, formally signing onto Agendas 21 and 2030, etc. Iran is playing a part in the Dialectic Theater.

            Watch out for professional spin. He also constantly pumps the faux left vs. right paradigm.

          • Agenda 21 is a set of voluntary, non-binding proposals to liberate women, provide birth control access to the poor who starving to death, to protect the environment, and promote a broader distribution of wealth.

            It is misrepresented as a totalitarian design by those who do not want to change the status quo in order to protect their vast fortunes, based on exploitation and degrading the environment.

            Anti-agenda-21 zealots are a brainwashed cult who when told the proposals are voluntary, regurgitate the sames lies they have fallen for.

            The solution to overpopulatioin (mass starvation, etc) is economic programs which lead to stable and prosperous economies in which the people voluntarily decrease birth rates to replacement or below levels as in all high income nations. With 68 individuals having more wealth than 3.5 billion people, it is not hard to figure out who is behind this propaganda lie about Agenda 21. What is harder to figure is why so many people are willing to be useful idiots for the roomful of people who own the world, while millions starve.

          • Operation Mockingbird was a not a “legally binding” program to facilitate the Fascist Oligarch domination of the mainstream media. And it worked quite well.

            Slow multi-generational insidious agendas are more dangerous than overt surface power grabs. Hence the efforts by TPTB to HIDE and scuttle the findings of the REECE Congressional Committee.

          • Operation Mockingbird, which was exposed by Congress in the 70’s has zero to do with Agenda 21. It was a secret and illegal black ops, not a voluntary, non-binding and public set of proposals.

            The Reece investigation into non-profits also has nothing to do with Agenda 21. It is a set of voluntary proposals. I find your efforts to link non-binding proposals aimed at liberating women, protecting the environment, and promoting a broader distribution of wealth to be
            false linkages, an attempt to smear a ideas by pretending they have something to do with secret dealings.

          • The Reece Committee findings EPITOMIZE elite directed social engineering (through non legally binding methods, analogous to the way the CIA has used NGOs in other countries) – in that situation revealing the non-publicized agendas of multiple Oligarch Foundations.

          • Some of those people who control most of the wealth also have corrupted the natural seeds that farmers harvested for centuries so that farmers have to buy this genetically engineered seed if they want their crops to grow. I think it may be one of the reasons so many bees are dying too. The seeds from Monsanto plants will not germinate and the biggest problem is the bees have spread it to natural crops, causing them to not germinate either. They started experimenting with these crops in Africa and now millions more are starving because of it. I have experienced it for myself with home grow veggies and the problem is it’s carrying over to other plants like wildflowers. I have been a gardener for over forty years and have watched how things are struggling to survive now. 70% of our food in the grocery stores have Monsanto chemicals in them with the US and the UN’s blessing. Chemicals that are causing many health problems and causing people to die earlier. So they are getting exactly the results they desire and thinning out the population — all in the name of “helping” people! You are either a fool or a shill for the NWO. The US already “distributes the wealth” of working people to millions of illegals and “refugees” that want to kill us. We don’t need any help from the UN!

          • here’s the info on a well researched book I’d advise anyone who wants to truly understand the agenda behind the genetic engineering of food:
            (Mostly Population Control)
            “Control the oil, and you control nations. Control the food, and you control the people.”* -Henry Kissenger

            “Seeds of Destruction: The Hidden Agenda of Genetic Manipulation”
            by F. William Engdahl is a skillfully researched book that focuses on
            how a small socio-political American elite seeks to establish control
            over the very basis of human survival: the provision of our daily bread.

          • Thanks. The Rockefellers started their research on controlling the world’s food supply all the way back in the 1920s. From what I’ve read they started experimenting in Africa in the 1940s and in many ways they caused much of the starvation wherever they went. It takes tons of chemicals to keep GMO seeds producing and it depletes and poisons the land. The poor farmers couldn’t afford to put in Monsanto crops and the GMOs crossed with the native crops and ruined them. I can imagine the heartbreak of these poor farmers when they could no longer get their crops to grow and feed their families. But the world sang the praises of Monsanto and their efforts to “save” the world. What a hoax! It makes me sick.

          • Yes it’s a long sad story going back as you said for almost a century. Much of it started with Eugenics and population control. It’s an incredible read if you get the chance.

          • Thousands of farmers in India borrowed money to plant GMO crops because of a promise of higher yields, then borrowed more money for the required insecticides, then because of lower yields lost their farms that had been in their families for generations.
            Thousands of farmers in India committed suicide because of Monsanto.

          • I remember reading about that too. So where is the UN on this IF they’re trying to save the environment of the world with Agenda 21 and now Agenda 30?

          • I agree with you on the dangers of GMO food production and the evil way in which the biotech industry has taken control of the government agencies meant to regulate them.

            I have a few disagreements: while 70% of all GMO crops are grown with the glyphosate, it is not true that 70% of all crops are GMO, tho probably 95% of all crops grown for meat production are.

            Many major crops have not yet succumbed to the GMO blight, including wheat and most fruits and vegetables. Corn and soy should always be bought organic to avoid GMO.

            Nor is the UN on board with the GMO crowd, as the WHO report has concluded that glyphosate is convincingly carcinogenic for lab animals and likely carcinpgenic for humans.

            You are confusing Agenda 21 proposals with Big Ag corruption.

            I am neither a shill nor a fool. I regularly write against Monsanto and other biotech corporation practices and how they have corrupted the USDA. I personally choose organic foods to avoid any use of GMO foods.

            I think you have been brainwashed to poison the well, lumping the corrupt GMO industry with Agenda 21 proposals to help small farmers, women, and to protect the environment.

            Perhaps you are paid to poison the well????

          • Helping small farmers, women and protecting the environment is only a front for the redistribution of wealth (to themselves) and an agenda to reduce the population of the earth. These same UN “leaders” allow all kinds of atrocities to the people in their own countries and do NOTHING to stop it. I don’t judge by what they say, but what they do.

            IF I could wave a magic wand and end all world poverty I would, but that is not reality. How is the UN protecting the environment when they aren’t fighting Monsanto tooth and nail. Monsanto ruined the natural crops for all the African people and now they are worse off than before. This has been going on for MANY years and the UN has NEVER done anything about it that I’ve ever heard. The UN’s idea of helping the environment is getting THEIR climate change agenda going all over the world where THEY would control what EVERYBODY could do with their own land. In other words they are pushing for world dominance through the front of humanitarian endeavors.

            The people of the US have always been ones to jump in and help when any country has a disaster and we are known for our charity by the tens of billions, but when you have such corrupt organizations like the UN handling the money it doesn’t get to where it was meant to go. I remember Christian organizations sending shiploads of food that governments took over for their armies. Did the UN step in? Of course not! I’ve already brought up the oil for food fiasco between the UN and Saddam. The list goes on and on. They do not mean what they say or say what they mean

            The UN is one of the reasons that the US has gotten into so many wars like Vietnam which has cost us dearly in lives and money. They keep calling on us to be the policemen of the world. The whole thing is politics and money and has nothing to do with world peace. It’s world “control” that they want just like the “rich”. They work with the “rich” and take the money away from the rest of us through our governments. Do I resent this — YES! It’s not helping poor people that I resent, but I want it to be MY choice what I do with MY money. I like donating to charities where the majority of the money goes where it is intended. I’ve even donated to a Christian group that is helping the refugees in the Mid East. To me, giving money to the UN is like giving money to a politician. You don’t know where it goes or what it’s used for.

            Actually I haven’t donated to a politician in years or to any political group. I tell them that when the politicians start doing their JOB that they were elected to do, I may start donating again. As you can see I am “opinionated” over many things!

            I ask how can “I” poison the well when it has been poisoned for many years already with all the propaganda put out by the US and the UN? What makes me sad is how many people like you, who seem to be intelligent, who have fallen for the lies.

          • An organic farm in my area was destroyed by gmo farm not far from it!

          • I read Agenda 21 back in the late 90’s in its entirety and I’m not going to reread it again to debate it with you. I was disturbed by it then and nothing you could say will change my opinion. Obviously you’re looking for someone who’s opinions are exactly the same as your own and good luck with that.

          • So you read it 15-20 years ago and you are too lazy even to read the 3 page Wikipedia summary? You have not stated what disturbed you or why you are unwilling to even refresh your memory.

            I am looking for intelligent people who do not hide behind lame excuses to exchange ideas with.

          • Undoubtably he is a Troll/Shill. I’ve seen it before. There’s thousands of them and they all operate the same. They bring up an agenda/subject that has little to do with the subject of the conversation going on, like ‘women’s rights, feeding the starving millions, UN Agenda 21’ etc. Often they work in tandem with another paid shill, and will then point the finger at someone who doesn’t agree with their agenda, and accuse them of working for who they work for. It’s all about causing dissent, and they’re good at it. But one of the easiest ways of sorting them out is that their opinions are so hard to take that no one could actually hold such ignorant opinions on the subject.
            At this point I can’t blame them for trying, as anyone with a functioning brain cell can’t believe one word coming out of the Ministry of Truth propaganda news agencies or the government and their control is slipping away and they’re desperate to maintain it. Ignore them

          • I believe it goes deeper than that. Many of the people you think are trolls truly believe in what they say. If you read the Bible you should understand that God has put it into their hearts and minds to give their kingdom to the beast so that the words of God will be FULFILLED. They are just as passionate about their views as we are about ours. They just don’t understand that they are being used by Satan to institute his one world government. As Jesus said: forgive them Father because they know not what they do.

          • I recently read that the money going back to Iran, I think $50 Billion dollars, was confiscated by the West on orders of the USA years ago, that it’s been their money all along, that nobody is ‘giving’ them money but returning what we illegally confiscated from them.

          • I heard the figure they are giving to Iran is somewhere around $180 billion.

          • Starting with Carter, during the hostage crisis (hostages were released the day Reagan was sworn in, a deal he had made with Iran to undermine Carter in the election….technically, treason)Iran money in the US was frozen. As a result of the deal (with all sides knowing it has nothing to do with nukes), the Iranian money is being returned.

            In addition, other Iranian properties such as their Embassy in
            Washington were seized and rented out or profit. Money frozen often earns interest. The 100 billion frozen in 1979, adjusted or inflation, is worth today 326 billion; invested in indexed funds, it would be worth today, 2.6 trilliion…so the Iranians getting back the 100 billion originally seized is only 1/25th of its true value viewed as an investment at 6% compound interest a year. So in fact, they are getting back about 4% of what the true value would be. And the US is saying they will only really get back half that:
            Jack Lew, Secy of the Treasury, said: ““We estimate that after sanctions relief, Iran will only be able to freely access around half of these reserves, or about $50 billion,” So that’s 2% of what the money, if invested, would be worth today.

            When Reagan undermined Carter to win the election, he promised Iran a better deal (Nixon had done the same with Vietnam, according to recently released archives). That is why the hostages were released the same afternoon Reagan was sworn in, having won the election after Iran took his deal and blew up Carter, who until then was leading in the polls. Reagan then secretly an illegally gave arms to Iran (at the same time arming Saddam in Iraq, ie arming both sides of a war) as a payment for their cooperation, and later he sold them arms, using the profits to fund the Contras, both of which acts were illegal. This was the Iran/Contra scandal, which he got away with by admitting it on national tv.

            Wikipedia summarizes: ” Senior administration officials secretly facilitated the sale of arms to Iran, which was the subject of an arms embargo. They hoped thereby to secure the release of several U.S. hostages and to fund the Contras in Nicaragua. Under the Boland Amendment, further funding of the Contras by the government had been prohibited by Congress.

            The scandal began as an operation to free the seven American hostages being held in Lebanon by a group with Iranian ties connected to the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution. It was planned that Israel would ship weapons to Iran, and then the United States would resupply Israel and receive the Israeli payment.”

            When leaders get away with criminal acts (undermining the negotiations of the President is treason, violating the law is criminal, arming both sides in a war is obscenely criminal), it only tempts them to lie, cheat, and break the laws they have sworn to uphold. And that’s the way it goes……………….

            HALF a million in Iraq? The trouble with such accounting is that none of them take into account civilian deaths due to starvation or medical problems arising from malnutrition.

            But I would guess that the total would exceed one million.

          • Deaths due to starvation, disease, etc caused by war are casualties of war. Of the 14 or so studies, the smallest number is from the US Military, which has a vested interest in underestimating civilians deaths.

            The media is about half a million, mostly civilians. Some serious studies, based on comparing population totals (and adjusted for emigration) and hospital data suggest a million deaths. The vast majority are civilians, tho those defending Iraq from foreign invaders may make up 10–20%.

            For thousand so years, starvation has been a means used for military purposes through seiges such as in present day Syria, where “rebels” hold towns hostage and take humanitarian aid and sell it to support their terrorism rather than give it to the people. Likewise, when Clinton imposed sanctions on Iraq for regime change, it caused the deaths of 500,000 very young children: this is economic warfare, which Gandhi called slow torture.

            I always value your insightful commentary.

            It has otherwise been said that Satan’s biggest deception is in convincing people he doesn’t exist. Which would make you…

          • No, Satan’s biggest deception is in convincing you that he is God and the Truth. Which would make you……………..

          • Read you statement, Wow… just WoW..

        • They already declared America The Great Satan. And what do you mean by “setting Iran free”? I suppose you imagine that you are free?

          Nothing could be further from the truth.

          • The people of the world see the US as the most violent and dangerous threat to world peace by a factor of 4. It is not they but the world which sees the US as the great threat.

            We are free to the degree that we oppose the lies of corporations, governments, and the media. Iran is free to the degree that it is allowed to operate freely in the world as a part of the international community. There are many levels of freedom: not being ruled or blocked by foreign powers is one of them.

            Why do you suppose you are free but others are not? That is pure hubris, which itself is a prison of the mind.

      • A Republican plan to empower Hillary Clinton, you say?

        • I didn’t say that. Clinton has voted with Repuiblicans on Iraq war,etc. She is a hawk of long standing……..

          Vote for Sanders if you want an alternative to the neo-cons in both parties.

    We are preparing to get into a war with Russia and China and other nations if this passes. No one man has control over the “world” and if someone thinks they do, they are headed for trouble. Do we actually think Putin is going to stand for this dictator?

    • Yep. I agree. There is certainly a lot more trouble brewing behind the scenes. Its like a global game of chess; and we are just spectators waiting to be wiped off the board. Yet, the world is blind to it!

    • Putin and the rest of the Russian Elites have most of their billions in western investments and offshore banks controlled by the International Bankers and Russia’s Central banks are BIS / Rothschild banks. Same with China. They are all in bed together. The good news is that means it’s very unlikely a major conflict (War) will break out between US, Russia, and China (both of which, in any case, on in big economic trouble, along with most of the world). The bad news is we have very little time to build up enough friction to slow down the NWO end game of a global digital currency and 24/7 surveillance, tracking, and monitoring. Chinese troops were training with US troops in NY last year, right? For several years, Russian troops have been hosted on US bases. There is a reason for this.

  9. No one person or government can have power the world. Each country has it;s own leaders and armies. To say this is just fear mongering. If they all Nuke each other then everybody will be gone and there will be no one left to be the winner over nothing. LOL this is stupid.

    • This is more smoke and mirrors so that the government can take EVERYTHING that EVERYBODY owns under Martial Law. It has NOTHING to do with protecting the American people. Under Martial Law the government suspends the Constitution and the people have NO rights. As the article says, it becomes a military dictatorship! IF they pass this the US will be history

    • Do you know how many nations have been overthrown and a vassal set up, look at history , our allies with us have all been doing this and they have more control then one can image. Just as the Roman Empire became a “Holy Roman Empire” to deceive people to come back into it even when it is not Holy.

      • Thats true. But none of them last either. One thing history tells us is that nobody has learned from it. They just keep repeating the same used cycle. This NWO will fall also; and, it will be the last…

    • It’s about creating a Global Military managed by a World Govt.

      That was always the plan.

  10. How about trying to discourage our young people from following in Daddy’s or Granddaddys footsteps to become cannon fodder for the elite, convince them that joining the military is a fools game, ask any former soldier how it worked out for them?! The USA military has become nothing but a poorly paid collection of mercenaries who serve the Globalists exclusively. Enough already. Maybe if nobody joins the elite will have to fight their own wars? Yeah right hahaha

    • They have already anticipated this possibility. Within 20 years, maybe less, their wars will be fought exclusively by autonomous robot warriors. Which we will have paid for by our ever-increasing taxes from our ever-diminishing wages. The two meet at about a 100% taxation rate.

      • We can still stop this. I dont know how. But we can! There has to be a way because they still fear us! However, they are moving at increasing speed because they can hear our grumble. That grumble needs to become a ROAR! And who cares if we die trying? Better to die fighting than die a slave…

      • Yes I fully agree with your post. All of the $$ and research going into AI, artificial intelligence, Google in particular, and CIA slush funds for Tech company research proves this is where it is all going

      • It is easy to support claims by making predictions. I predict in 20 years, Palestinian children will still be throwing rocks at IDF forces armed with assault rifles, that black protesters will still be confronted with militarized police who will attack them for throwing water bottles.

        Predictions of 100% taxes? Very very likely. We will be eating rats and cockroaches very very soon.

    Business as usual; “The only good soldier is a dead soldier”. Capitalism in action as the alien/military/industrial/complex forges the new world order in your neighborhood. Greed, guns, god, and the german work ethic are the obvious root causes to the destabilization of what was once western civilization.

    • Somehow your words are coming across as negative towards the US. Did you mean this as sarcasm because so many blame everything on America?

      • This is not an ‘American’ problem. This is global. Its just that the US is the worlds super power and on the most part most nations will follow the US. Those who dont get destroyed. Being Australian it disappoints me that good American citizens are cast in with the corrupt NWO government that exists there and give instructions to all other nations. We are all in this together, friend. Never before have I felt closer to the people of the world than now; because we all share a very real common problem. The loss of our FREEDOM…

        • I hope you read a Bible because it’s all in there about where the world is headed from here. According to the Bible Satan WILL get his one world order and ALL nations will fall to his influence. We are in a time of trials now and it’s going to get worse from here. People think that if we turn back to God it will change what is happening, but God is out to save individuals now — NOT nations. Thank God many are waking up and preparing themselves (by putting on the armor of God) to face what’s coming.

          • Yeah friend, Im a believer! I get peace from that, however, its a real test for sure. And, you are right it will happen as the Word says. How long? Who knows, but I reckon it will be in our lifetime. Its coming at a fast pace now..

  12. If I’m not mistaken I don’t think martial law was ever lifted when imposed during the years near or on the civil war. Don’t have the data right in front of me but you may want to check that.
    If it is true, why are there people writing articles with such bad research.

    • I read the same thing once. Actually, through executive order, Obama said that he could declare Martial Law without Congress’ approval anyway. All this would be doing is covering Obama’s azz when he does declare Martial Law because Congress is giving their permission ahead of time.

    “We are entering on the moral phase of humanity’s growth, the long struggle of the human will against the intellectual weapons and potent machinery of despots, priests, and politicians, the accursed trinity which has ever hindered our normal growth, and repressed the aspirations of man. This struggle will inevitably last long. The people must drive these tyrants into insignificance and efface them from the earth by the grandeur of their own superiority. The time has come when the people can bear the truth told them, and when that time is fully ripe, deeds worthy of America’s most valiant battles in the past and present will flash and fulminate in a new sense from her shores; deeds worthy of her noblest aspirations; for the future will utter to earth and heaven, in thunder tones, what I am here stating, that the moral phase of humanity has begun.”

  18. I’m not trying to argue your points and actually agree with your post, BUT I remember the 60’s as a young boy and the ‘peace symbol’ and always wondered how it came to symbolize peace, as it is exactly the same symbol that represents Death in Nordic and Germanic Rune symbols. whereas had they used the opposite rune symbol, which is an inverted ‘peace symbol’, that represents Life…. I’ve always wondered about that, unless all those stoned hippies were wearing it upside down by accident and it caught on that way lol.


      • I won’t argue with that! Smile


          • Our form of government is Not a ‘Democracy’ it is a Republic. But if you repeat a Lie often enough it becomes the Truth. The founders, during the Constitutional Convention decried ‘Democracy’ as no better than the oppressive Monarchies they’d lived under in Europe. Somewhere around the Early 1900’s President Wilson started calling it a Democracy. Around the same time our criminal Federal Reserve system was put in place, the First World War was engineered, the American people had the first income tax placed on them, the federal control of education began, and too many evils to list here.
            I personally don’t agree with your love of ‘Democracy’ as look at the shape of our country and how ‘one person one vote’ has turned out. So a nation of idiots get to have an equal voice. All that means is that 50.1 percent of the people get to decide how the other 49.9 percent get to live, and that’s not Freedom or Liberty by any stretch of the imagination! We have become a Nation of Sheep and are ruled by a Government of Wolves directly because of ‘democratic principles’.

          • Top to bottom hierarchy of types of governments:
            1. A Limited Constitutional Republic like the one promised in the U.S.
            2. Monarchy.
            3. Dictatorship.
            4. Anarchy.
            5. d-word and r-word government like what the U.S. has become.
            d-word is two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s for dinner.
            r-word is the same idea but slightly hidden.
            d-word and r-word governments can use government force against people that have not harmed anyone.
            Even for using a medication that the government says that they shouldn’t use. Even forcing medication and poisons that people don’t want like fluoride and non-therapeutic vaccines.
            Within a Limited Constitutional Republic, the proper hierarchy is:
            Top to bottom:
            1. Creator
            2. Rights given by the Creator that include one specified in the Declaration of Independence and ones specified in the U.S. Bill of Rights, and other that are not specified in either.
            3. The people.
            4. The Constitution for the United States of America.
            5. The branches of government.
            6. Laws passed.
            Note, our rights cannot be overruled by the people, a Constitution, any branch of government, nor the laws.

          • Good response, thanks. In my response to her comments I was disturbed by the fact that she is bashing “Retard-Repubs” and believing that voting will change anything. Anyone paying attention should see by now that there aren’t two parties, there’s only one, which serves the real ruling elite exclusively, and that voting changes nothing but perpetuate the myth that we have some say in what our rulers do, but we do not.



          • I don’t disagree that our election system is severely flawed. Direct Democracy may work in Switzerland with a total population of 8.1 million people of which 99% are White. It exists as a very cohesive population with very common shared beliefs because of those statistics. That does not exist here and never will, and will not work for that reason. I know who your apparent hero Chris Hedges is and have read many of his articles. But after reading one he wrote about how the world should become Vegan and ‘stop the Murder of animals’ I don’t hold his opinions in such high regard as I used to.

          • And as far as your CH=YUCK little girl name games, maybe when you get home from junior high school and your socialist homework is done, you could explain who the “WE” in WE DEMAND A DIRECT DEMOCRACY!! THAT’S THE CORRECT WAY! is supposed to be??

            They set up a republic because knew what the out come would be with stupid people running things. The proffe is what we have today

          • No, they set up a Limited Constitutional Republic to insure neither that the government nor to vote of other people could interfere with our rights.
            A Limited Constitutional Republic is the highest form of government known.
            But we have degraded to be below a Monarchy, below a Dictatorship, even below Anarchy. We have become the lowest of the low.
            We are a d-word and r-word government.
            d-word is one sheep and two wolves voting on what is for dinner.
            r-word is the same thing only somewhat hidden.
            Whether you call it d-word, r-word, corporatism, of fascism, it does not support individual rights and is not for the good of the people.

        • It also tends to make you not tolerate obvious bullshit, which is what their entire enterprise is, and to become more empathetic and less likely to support war and an overall violent society.

  19. A declaration of International war, the new world order cometh to serve the elite.

    • I keep repeating this with the hope that people will get the message. The Bible says that God has put it into their hearts to give their kingdom to the beast so that the words of God will be fulfilled. Satan ruling over the WHOLE earth for three and a half years with a one world government is what Revelations (God’s word) says will happen. It’s not that I’m trying to tell people to not fight Satan’s influence, but to prepare themselves for what God has said will happen. People will be saved — NOT nations! When Jesus returns to defeat Satan the whole earth will go under God’s government with Jesus as ruler. Jesus said that if you love the things of THIS world, then the love of the Father is not in you. He also told us to put on the armor of God (by learning the Bible) and pray that you are found worthy to escape all these things that are coming. Good advice no matter what happens.

  20. Are people starting to believe me now when I say: Obama/Soetoro/Soebarkah/Bounel/Gog will usurp the next U.S. Presidential term.
    Before you claim that a third term is unConstitutional, remember that his father was not a U.S. citizen when Obama/Soetoro/Soebarkah/Bounel/Gog was born so Obama/Soetoro/Soebarkah/Bounel/Gog was never
    U.S. Constitutionally eligible for the first two terms that he usurped.

  21. do you think that God is an Eraser…meaning your life NON ILLUMINATI would be that you would die (respectively speaking) then also with you is all your books and facebooks.coms? meaning that the memory of you or your books in your name would live on in RELATIVE style such as the Bristish Isle family like a Roth…sort of…and so The Beatles band when they die (respect) as a cru (Wingdings (with the dots over the top of the u) like the Microsof t 9/11 attacks on wiki “pedophile” ia) Their music wouldn’t be public nonmore and accepted anymore besides their own inheritance of family? But no one killing anyone…because money also is a reset too per person dying for instance Bill Gates having 1 million children (inoculated in a test tube) then giving them 50 grand each but his Microsoft windown not living on when he is deceased only within his (next generation) family can be used

Why not just build a fence around the place, including an electronic fence to keep all the noise they make in, and Americans can get on with putting OUR country back in order. Make Philly the Capital again, and this time follow the Constitution in forming the Congress AND in choosing who to elect President.

    I have read the People’s History of the United States, and I am currently reading a People’s History of the World. I have written extensively on conspiracies, such as the Gulf of Tonkin hoax, the murders of JFK,MLK, and RFK, and the government’s lies about 9/11. I have read Crossing the Rubicon, which documents many of the deep state operations.

    However, Agenda 21 is a voluntary, non-binding set of proposals……and so I find the far right paranoia about it totally absurd. I would appreciate your reasoning.

    Plato… who was a damn sight smarter than you, said that “Democracies inevitably descend into tyranny within 10 generations” … see what you don’t realize in your Marxist indoctrinated mind… is that these things have been pondered for thousands of years, by giants of philosophy and politics,, they aren’t entirely new concepts.. But they are Western concepts..
    Switzerland is neutral.. and also wealthy… It primarily comprised of one race, and is a united populace at present.. there is little dissent, because everyone is well off and comfortable.. America on the other hand is comprised of immigrants of many different nationalities..
    Swiss fortunes are made from “banking” and luxury items like diamonds etc . which I won’t go into the ethicality of here… A common national racial group makes it easy for everyone to remain on the same page…
    America finances are made from trade, ingenuity, and natural resources.. and the resources are running out… sadly, this is coinciding with a sharp drop in brain power as well mainly because of importing millions of uneducated immigrants… not great news for the once great USA… lowered standards for University entrance to fill diversity quotas.. and Marxist infiltration of higher education with an emphasis on indoctrination, instead of classical education… i.e. trivium and quadrivium!
