RIGHT Before The Saudi Oil Attack THIS Happened and It’s The KEY To Everything


In the realm of Conservatives such as Paleocons and Neocons, there are concerns about the verifiable act that Saudi Oil Fields were attacked. The disagreement among pundits is, “Who attacked?” Was it Iran? Was it the Shi’ite Houthi Rebels in Yemen? Did the Houthis attack Saudi oil wells under the direction of Iran? More ridiculously, did the U.S. attack the oil wells to false flag Iran to start a war? Did the Saudis attack their own oil wells to false flag Iran so the U.S. would attack Iran?

Lisa Haven

The latter two is a bit unbelievable to me! YET a couple of days ago I ran into a Lisa Haven video/article where she puts forth a credible scenario of the Saudi oil well attack. I think you will be interested as well.

RIGHT Before The Saudi Oil Attack THIS Happened and It’s The KEY To Everything

 

Saudi Oil Fields Ablaze

Saudi Aramco’s Abqaiq refinery, the largest oil processing facility in the world, and the Khurais oil field were attacked by a barrage of cruise missiles and drone strikes on Saturday.

 

Not surprisingly, United States President Donald Trump warned that the U.S. is “locked and loaded” to respond to the attack, but insisted that he was still waiting to verify who was responsible. U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo immediately rushed to blame Iran, even while Yemen’s Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for it.

But what’s really happening with the Saudi Oil attack? I believe the key can be found in what happened days before the entire event transpired. All that and more below…

Islam Is America’s Enemy

September 11th: A Day Like No Other

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 8/28/2019 1:13 PM

 

A day like no other, the pain and the hurt from the September 11th 2001 Islamic attack on the United States and the destruction of the Twin Towers and the Pentagon — the murders of 2977 Americans [Blog Editor: Other sources may list the number as 2,996 as the number of deaths. This number adds the Islamic terrorist hijackers to the dead] — is still just as fresh in the minds of many Americans, as if it had only happened yesterday. The sun shone bright and the sky was blue and clear, and a beautiful September morning was transformed into horror and death, with nearly 3,000 innocents murdered for simply loving the freedom of living and working in America, and the anguish remains.

 

I learned everything I needed to know about Islam on September 11th 2001, to use a coined phrase, even though I was already well versed in the Koran and the cultural proclivities of the adherents of Islam, and I suspect this sentiment is still firmly held by a vast majority of Americans. We all watched as Evil kicked in America’s door with one swift blow that morning, and the images of this horrific tragedy have remained with us for these past eighteen years, as we recall hundreds of Americans jumping to their deaths to escape the inferno unleashed inside the Twin Towers, forever searing the harsh realities of that infamous day into our memories.

 

News networks across the board carried live footage, as bodies began falling from the blazing, smoke-filled North Tower, hit by American Airlines Flight 11 at 8:46 A.M. (EST), and  shortly followed by the image of US Airlines Flight 175 flying into the South Tower at 9:03. The South Tower collapsed at 9:59, and the North Tower collapsed at 10:28, with the unforgettable incandescence of the images, acts of war, forever burned into America’s memories. The images of the Towers of the World Trade Center collapsing into a pile of smoke and rubble, within only 102 minutes shocked all the world and shook America to its core.

 

Today, too few Americans have held onto the righteous anger and fury they felt on 9/11.

 

In the face of destruction everywhere and much work ahead, for many Americans life simply moved on. The president was still alive, the global balance of power hadn’t shifted and the terrorism threat was the same as it was on September 10th, and the Muslim bastards had just been lucky. And from then ’til now, this day was mourned, commercialized and finally trivialized to the point that amnesia has set in, evidenced by thousands of Muslims still immigrating into our country and the fact that hundreds of Muslims are being supported in runs for public office and hundreds more are being appointed, as one Islamic terrorist plot after another unfolds, in an America where the memory of 9/11 has apparently died.

 

Many Americans promised each other they would never forget. Memorials to that defiant pledge echo the words “Never Forget”. But America has forgotten, and it is a shame that must be cleansed away.

 

Due to the 1993 attempt to destroy the World Trade Center, by the Blind Sheikh and his band of Islamic terrorists, on September 11th, 2001, my eyes were already wide open to the existential threat of Islam. Most of America still chose to close their eyes to the threat, as hard as they could, even after the horror of September 11th 2001. They now say “Oh … I remember that day” as if it’s just another day from eighteen years ago.  And it’s time to remind America again.

 

American Airlines Flight 11 flew into the North Tower at 440 miles per hour, and within minutes, searing heat coursed through the Tower at roughly 1600 to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit. Americans were trapped inside, and they died in sheer torment and agony as their flesh was burned away from bone.

 

At 9:37 American Airlines Flight 77, from Dulles International Airport, flew into the Pentagon, the command center of our military forces. Minutes later, at 10:03, United Airlines 93 went down, in a field near Shanksville, PA, killing all aboard, as heroic passengers fought with their Islamic hijacker terrorists.

 

As fate would have it, the ringleader of 9/11, Mohammed Atta, was overheard in a radio transmission just before Flight 93 went down. Quoting the Koran, Atta said, “No prophet should have prisoners until he has soaked the land with blood.” As the fight continued inside the airliner, shouts of “Allahu Akbar” are heard.

 

By all accounts, in the aftermath, anyone close to the smoldering ruins of the towers could taste the air, and breathing felt strange, since the air had a texture, and it felt as if one were breathing particles of sand and glass mixed with the oxygen. The air tasted like burning rubber, putrid and toxic.

 

Millions of Americans watching the horror of it all unfold had the same thought, that “this can’t be happening in America — don’t these terrorists know this is the most powerful nation on earth?”

 

At the 59th Street bridge, Manhattan looked like a scene from the movie ‘Deep Impact’, with crowds of shocked people walking across the bridge and trying to leave the tiny island of Manhattan as quickly as possible. No matter where one looked, that scene was the same on other New York City bridges, and all of a sudden, the United States of America, the “Shining City On The Hill” seemed vulnerable.

 

As our people trudged over bridges or went uptown to escape danger, millions of Muslims delighted in the massacre of our brothers, sisters, husbands, wives, friends and fellow countrymen, and all across the Islamic world they cheered the strike that these Sons of Allah had made against this America I love so well, seen in videos and firsthand, from Gaza and the West Bank, Egypt, and right here in America where large crowds of Muslims were cheering “Allahu Akbar“, dancing and handing out candy. Celebrations occurred on John F. Kennedy Blvd. in New Jersey and on Atlantic Ave. in Brooklyn, and they were confirmed by Peter Gallagher, then a police sergeant, and former New York City Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, as well as former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

 

And everyone surely recalls, that it wasn’t long before our houses of God filled with the faithful, from “sea to shining sea”, and they stayed packed for months thereafter.

 

In the years between then and now, and despite having a president who understands the terrorists must be defeated, our nation is still largely led by people not too concerned with defending America against all enemies, and America’s leadership, especially in the Democratic Party, wrings its softened hands in fear of offending the mullahs, ayatollahs, sheikhs and imams of Islam and the Islamic world that brought so much death and destruction to our shore eighteen years ago; House Democrats have forgotten the collective national pain and the reasons America was attacked, and they would return to the appeasement that gave way to Islam’s most recent ascendancy, if the American people allow it.

 

Let us remember too, that immediately after the 9/11/12 Islamic terrorist attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, Libya, Pres. Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told America it wasn’t a terror attack. They hid behind the lie that an angry mob rioted over a Youtube video that insulted Islam. During that despicable tragic attack that resulted in the murders of four more fine Americans, our “leaders” tried to make it seem as if America was to blame.

 

There are still those — the “Coexist” nutcases in our government and the media — who insistently suggest that it’s intolerant to suggest the most intolerant vile and evil ideology of Islam is in any way, shape or form the problem. Heaven forbid that anyone reveals the cry of “Allahu Akbar” means that Allah is greater than the gods of non-Muslims; the people must not be forced to reflect on the evil of Islam and the terrorists responsible for 9/11, and Heaven forbid America offends them now.

 

Muslim delight was rubbed quite literally in the face of all America, at the very moment our people were in shock and mourning in the immediate aftermath of the attacks. And yet, so many Americans still don’t dare to draw cartoons, make speeches, or even offhand remarks, or pen articles that might offend Islam.

 

If anything, America should place a ban on all Muslim immigration , since nothing good comes of bringing Islam into a Western nation; nobody with any sense of love for America wants any new Muslim immigrants, while those anti-Americans in the Democratic Party who thrive on the disruption Muslims and Islam bring to America demand millions more be granted entry.

 

For America’s sake, stop falling for the damnable lie that Islam is “a religion of peace” or that we can “coexist” with Islam, especially when the historical record and the empirical data prove otherwise. Muslims are only concerned with justice for all and minority rights, when they are in the minority; after their numbers grow sufficiently, through immigration and procreation, and they become the majority, minority rights cease to exist, and all are forced to submit to Islam and the will of Allah. And this is reason enough to sever our country from all Middle Eastern entanglements and leave the Muslims with fair warning to leave us be and in peace, or suffer the heat of a thousand suns, in a manner suggested by Lt Colonel Matthew Dooley, in June 2011 at the War College. [Blog Editor: Very informative article related to LTC. Dooley – Off with their heads! By Tabitha Korol; Renew America; 11/25/13]

 

This fateful day of September 11th should be a day to reflect on what America is becoming, when so many of Her people continue to reject absolute truths and the very idea of self-evident truths and inalienable rights, and so many decision makers have been neutered and emasculated by multiculturalism. The evil done in the name of Allah and Islam on that day and the heroic response of America’s Ground Zero heroes calls us to assess the direction of the nation, regarding the continuing menace from the evil ideology of Islam, our war with Islam.

 

The Islamic attack on 9/11 and the subsequent Islamic attacks that followed taught me everything I needed to know about Islam, without ever having to peek at the first page of the Koran, whether one looks at Boston, Ft Hood, San Bernardino, Orlando or New York and on to Islamic terrorism like Charlie Hebdo and the Bataclan. Muslims see liberal democracy and America and the West as evil, and they hate everything about us, seeking to murder us not by the dozens, but by the thousands — without any regard for human life — all in the name of Islam, at the end of rifles, a suicide bomb and the bloody, shining edge of a beheader’s blade, in their certain belief and zealotry that they will save the world for their children and Islam, and as such, this is a war between Islam and the United States, and it’s just beginning.

 

America came together in unity that day, to fight the long war, after witnessing Islam’s soulless savagery, with many awakened to the reality of Islam’s intent to murder us all when it could. However, eighteen years later and still faced with this evil ideology, that is still growing and spreading and focused particularly on Christians and Jews in America, with murder in mind, far too many people have forgotten the chaotic sights and sounds of 9/11, the taste of the air, the curtain of black smoke, the scenes of horror and the acts of bravery, and the impenetrable black cloud that replaced the Towers, as our world was changed forever.

 

September 11th 2001 only reaffirmed for me the truth I reached on my own, after the 1979 takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Iran, hardening my resolve to keep my white-hot fury burning, until this war with Islam is decisively won. I became more certain than ever that Islam is the enemy of all non-Muslims and infidels, of all Americans. And that is something no one can afford to forget.

9/11, GWOT, Osama & Hamza Killed


By John R. Houk

© August 1, 2019

 

Way back on September 11, 2001 Osama bin Laden headed the Islamic terrorist organization responsible for killing 2,977 people instantaneously in New York City, the Pentagon building, Shanksville PA airline crash and the passenger victims on three other flights.

 

Art Moore reported in September 2018:

 

More than 2,000 first responders have died from diseases related to the toxic fumes and dust at Ground Zero in New York City.

 

Thousands more, perhaps as many as 10,000 people, have been diagnosed with 9/11-related diseases such as cancer and severe respiratory disease.

 

The Daily Wire in September 2018 used some USA Today statistics to report:

 

  • In 2017, 23 current or former members of the New York City Police Department died of 9/11-related diseases. That’s the same number of NYPD members that perished on Sept. 11, 2001.

 

  • The FDNY lost a stunning 343 members on Sept. 11, 2001. Since then, line-of-duty deaths linked to 9/11 are approaching 180, now well over half lost on the day of the attacks. So many have died since the attacks that last year, a new tablet had to be added to the Hall of Heroes at 1 Police Plaza to accommodate all the names of the fallen.

 

  • One FBI agent was reported killed in Sept. 11, 2001, attacks; as of this August, the FBI reports a death toll of 15 from cancers linked to toxic exposure during the subsequent investigation and cleanup.

 

  • According to John Feal, founder of the Feal Good Foundation that supports 9/11 rescue and recovery workers, there have been more losses so far this year – 163 – than in any year since he started tabulating them in 2008.”

 

American-hating Muslims followed the dictates of their revered writings to make the entire world submit to Islam or kill those who refuse to submit led to nearly 3,000 immediate deaths on American soil. Those attacks way back in 2001 are still killing Americans in 2019. That day on a September morning made Roosevelt’s day that would live in infamy – where “2,403 U.S. personnel, including 68 civilians” not as infamous in comparison to 9/11. I wonder how many Americans continued to die from the affects of that Pearl Harbor attack for years to come – even after WWII. Now 65,811,500 died as a result of WWII, all those millions died to combat or massacre scenarios. Not one (excluding the Pearl deaths) of those WWII millions died from the post-affects of the Pearl Harbor attack at least not in the same way FIRST RESPONDERS from 9/11 are still dying today.

 

THANK GOD a significant majority in Congress passed and President Trump signed September 11th Victim Compensation Fund on July 29.

 

According to Brown University’s Watson Institute, American and Allied troops that have “ died fighting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan had passed 6,900 at the end of 2018.” Those numbers relate to 17 years of an eighteen year old war still happening. WHY?

 

Because an Islamic Supremacist from Saudi Arabia in his perceived safe have in Afghanistan decided to kill people on American soil for the glory of the moon-deity turned into a monotheistic god called Allah. It is my suspicion more Muslims who may or may not publicly agree with the global dictates of Islam shouted Allahu Akbar on 9/11.

 

So yes, as what Leftists, Multiculturalists and far too many Muslims would guess by now, I am not very friendly toward any part of the ideology inherent in Islam thus calling me with their epithet of Islamophobe.

 

As such, I was quite pleased with one thing accomplished in the Obama Administration: The demise of the perfidious instigator of this current war on terrorism, specifically Navy SEALS killing Osama bin Laden in his Pakistan hideout in an Abbottabad compound on May 2, 2011. Just in case you are not privy to the location of the Abbottabad compound, it was remarkably close to a Pakistani elite military academy leading many – including myself – to believe Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) was hiding bin Laden from the USA.

 

Even though Afghanistan is hardly a unified nation. It is my humble opinion America should began pulling out of Afghanistan after the 9/11 perpetrator faced American justice. I have no doubt the reason the U.S. Military has maintained its Afghan presence because of the common belief the still powerful Taliban would ultimately reassert control of the nation enforcing Islam’s draconian Sharia Law brutalizing all who do not submit to said Islamic Sharia. Also Afghanistan would again become a haven for globalist-Caliphate-minded Islamic terrorists taking potshots not only at American and Israeli interests but toward anything portraying Western Culture. Europe’s idiotic Multiculturalist policy has already disrupted the European rule of law towards trying to add incompatible Islam, think how much worse for those folks with an Afghan protected terrorist haven aimed at the West.

 

At any rate, I had heard Al Qaeda had been grooming Osama bin Laden’s son Hamza bin Laden to take the reigns of terrorist leadership. From a 1600Daily.com alert I have learned that Hamza bin Laden has been killed. Al Qaeda will have to look for another loony Muslim for charismatic leadership.

 

The media outlets reporting Hamza’s death are mum on the details of the how, where and when. I’ve only found the BBC willing to report Hamza’s death was accomplished by a U.S. airstrike. My guess details may be lacking because an actual body hasn’t been spotted and perhaps only distant drone video footage has led to the assumption of death.

Published on Aug 1, 2019

 

Hamza Bin Laden, the son of al-Qaeda founder Osama Bin Laden, died in an air strike, US media outlets report, citing intelligence officials. The place and date of death were unclear. The Pentagon did not comment. Bin Laden, thought to be aged about 30, had released audio and video messages calling for attacks on the US and other countries. As recently as February, the US government offered $1m (£825,000) for information leading to his capture.

Hamza bin Laden Dead: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

 

Central Intelligence Agency –  Hamza bin Laden pictured in a video released by the CIA in 2018.

 

By Paul Farrell

Updated Jul 31, 2019 at 4:33pm

Heavy.com

 

Hamza bin Laden, the son of Osama bin Laden, is dead, NBC News reported on July 31. Hamza had been expected to take over as al Qaeda leader. He was 30 years old. His death has not been officially confirmed. The NBC report was later confirmed by the New York Times.

 

Hamza bin Laden is one of Osama bin Laden’s living wives, Khairiah Sabar. Sabar was present during the raid on Osama bin Laden’s Abbottabad compound that resulted in the death of the 9/11 mastermind. Hamza was at a training camp at the time of the raid. The current leader of al Qaeda is Egyptian eye surgeon Ayman al-Zawahiri.

 

The NBC report says that Hamza’s death was confirmed by three U.S. officials. The New York Times reports that the U.S. was involved in Hamza’s death. In February 2019, the CIA offered a $1 million reward for information regarding Hamza’s whereabouts.

 

Here’s what you need to know:

  1. Hamza Was Born to a Child Psychologist Mother in Saudi Arabia in 1989

The Associated Press reported in March 2019 that Saudi Arabia, where Hamza was born, in the city of Jeddah in 1989, had revoked his citizenship. That AP article identified Hamza’s mother a child psychologist who was also from Jeddah. Jon Gambrell wrote, “She gave birth to Hamza, their only child together, as al-Qaida took its first, tentative steps toward the Sept. 11 attacks.”

 

FBI Seeking Info Hamza bin Laden

FBI Hamza bin Laden’s wanted poster.

 

Hamza’s latest wanted poster from the FBI says that he was suspected to be in either Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, or Iran. The poster concludes with the lines, “Hamza bin Laden is wanted for questioning in connection with his membership in the Al Qaeda organization and his public declarations threatening the security of the United States.”

 

  1. Hamza Is Said to Have Been Extremely Popular Among Rank-and-File Jihadis

Published on Mar 1, 2019]

 

Former FBI agent Ali Soufan wrote in September 2017 that “Hamza is being prepared for a leadership role in the organization his father founded. The article said that Hamza was looked upon fondly by “rank-and-file” jihadis. Soufan added that Hamza was seen as a new figure who could unite jihadis across the world due to the collapse of ISIS. The article’s title referred to Hamza as being “al Qaeda’s Leader in Waiting.”

 

Those writings were echoed by Professor Fawaz Gerges told the BBC in August 2017 that Hamza was “the new face of al-Qaeda – he is charismatic, he is very popular with the rank and file. He was his father’s favorite son – everyone, even for the last ten years, has been talking about Hamza succeeding his father.”

  1. Hamza Is Rumored to Have Married to the Daughters of Al Qaeda Leaders

The FBI said in 2018 that Hamza had married the daughter of Al Qaeda senior leader Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah, aka Abu Muhammad al Masri. al Masri has been indicted for his involvement in the bombings of the United States Embassies in Tanzania and Kenya.

 

The Guardian reported in August 2018 that Hamza was also married to the daughter of Mohammed Atta. Atta is considered to have been the lead hijacker on 9/11. Hamza’s uncles, Ahmad and Hassan al-Attas told the newspaper that their nephew had taken a senior role within Al Qaeda and was planning revenge on the U.S. for the death of his father in 2011. Ahmad said in the interview, “We have heard he has married the daughter of Mohammed Atta. We’re not sure where he is, but it could be Afghanistan.”

The act of promoting Hamza was an attempt to capitalize on the 30-year-old’s last name. Security analyst Peter Bergen told CNN at the time, “Obviously, he has the family name. He’s now playing a propaganda role, and he’s a lot younger than some of the other leaders of al Qaeda, in their 50s or their 60s.” In 2008, the Daily Telegraph reported that Hamza made similar calls for war against the United Kingdom.

In the confusing aftermath following the SEAL Team 6 raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound in May 2011, the New York Times reported that one of those killed in the firefight was Hamza bin Laden.

 

On May 6, three days after the raid, the Guardian reported that Hamza’s remains had been removed from the compound. By May 11, the Daily Beast was reporting that Pakistani authorities were saying that Hamza had not been at the compound at the time of the raid and was considered to be on the run.

Intro to Culper’s ‘Imminent Second USA American Civil War’

Second USA American Civil War (2) – thetylt.com [photo from ConservativeRightWingNews.com]

 

Samuel Culper [bio in Forward Observer Mission Statement] has made three videos about an “Imminent Second USA American Civil War”. Culper’s videos originate on his blog the Forward Observer. However, I discovered via email alerts from Conservative, Right Wing News. And so the CRWN route is how I’m going to proceed in this cross post.

 

In the first video Culper asserts that civil war is in operation – NOW. He points out this civil war has not broken into conventional warfare, BUT the American Left is engaging the Right with misinformation, lies, calling ALL Conservatives extremists to brainwash the everyday American, destroy freedom, use lawfare strategies to bankrupt Conservatives and so on. The Leftist aim is to win the war without going to war.

 

The first video is about Leftist strategies. The second video is an attempt explain the Conservative response to Leftist strategies with the assumption Conservatives will NEVER control the government or perhaps never as long as the current bureaucracy is dominated by the Left. Culper believes the Conservative response will be regional in a balkanized scenario. Culper divides the balkanization into three scenarios:

 

  • Secessionist

 

  • Separatist

 

  • Resistance

 

I am uncertain if Culper views these scenarios evolving progressively or in sporadic simultaneous movements across the nation.

 

The third video is predictive in nature but with the caveat there is no certainty in predictions. Culper uses Sir John Glubb’s book on “The Fate of Empires” as the predictive paradigm. Culper views America’s westward expansion as empire building and so there is an American Empire. My personal objection to the concept of empire by conquest is at least since 1865, the USA was involved in foreign wars by conquest was never the objective. The Spanish American War resulted in territorial acquisition but when the people in those acquisitions chose self-determination, independence was granted without conflict. Cuba and the Philippines come to mind. Puerto Rico has been offered independence or statehood several times, but to date Puerto Rican voters have opted to remain a U.S. Territory.

 

The point Culper makes about the USA is its time as a world power has an expiration date. The allusion is the American Left/Right conflict that may deteriorate into balkanized conflict will be the demise of the America as we know it.

 

Trust me, I have done little justices to Culper’s envisioning of a Second American Civil War. You should watch to form your own opinion. Also the third video ends somewhat open ended with the implication Culper has more to add on the subject on future short talk videos.

Liberty Suppressed

Freedom and Liberty Are At Risk

 

By Justin O. Smith

Independence Day is a now a day that has no real meaning for far too many Americans today, as nearly half the nation works tirelessly to destroy our republic and the principles it was founded upon, and the rest of us can barely believe that some who want to lead the nation, Democrat communists and Republican globalists (RINOs), hold a vision, that would reduce us all to serfs serving the government rather than the government serving the will of the people; and a good portion of both sides simply want a barbecue and a good time.  America’s domestic enemies see state power as paramount over individual liberty, and unless America’s youth starts standing up and remembering how much blood was shed for their freedom and the rights they so casually abuse as they trash America in so many ways, from their anti-American speeches to their attempts to destroy the basis of America and our Judeo-Christian principles, everyone, my children and grandchildren and yours too, face dangerous times ahead.

 

Anyone who listened to Presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren share her horror over states making gains in halting abortion understand that true liberty and individual rights, even states’ rights, mean nothing to the Democrats. Warren called for a federal law that codifies Roe v Wade, with the certain knowledge that the federal government treasury would be used to coerce states to fall in line, as has been done regarding so many other federal laws.

 

Even at the local city and county governments, citizens witness elected officials, claiming to be “conservatives”  — who think they know better than the people — go against the will of the people, just as the city council in Murfreesboro, TN and  also Rutherford County council did recently when they voted a thirty-five percent and six percent tax increase respectively to pay for services and pay raises and to preserve a government “savings account”.

 

Our republic uses democratic mechanisms to govern, while certain checks and balances and the Bill of Rights were also put in place to protect the individual’s rights. The principle of good governance as set forth by Thomas Jefferson and many of the Founding Fathers acknowledges that the rights of the individual are paramount over anything else one might consider in any government.

 

Read the unredacted parchment drafted by Thomas Jefferson. It presents an important distinction, in that it reads the “Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America”, not the “Declaration of the United States of America.

These were thirteen independent states, on that hot summer day in 1776, not a “United” States in the singular, a State to be held together at gunpoint or through coercion, and these sovereign states were comprised of sovereign individuals who gave their consent to be governed, not ruled. However, today a stark contrast exists between the single State governed by the central authority of the federal government and the once sovereign states that have become nothing more than administrative districts.

 

Since 1865, “consent of the governed” has become a heretical phrase and must not be spoken of due to its implications. No one now living consented to such an all-powerful centralized government, and if consent is a moral prerequisite to legitimate government, the government of the United States — the singular behemoth, the Leviathan — is illegitimate on the face of it. And we have allowed ourselves to become subjects, not citizens, speaking holistically, since some of Us have fought government intrusions on individual liberty and states’ rights all our adult lives.

 

Think You’re “free”? Try not paying excessive taxes, as we recall that the War of Independence was fought, in part due to the Stamp Act of 1765 and the Tea Act of 1773 and three pennies added to the cost of a pound of tea.

 

The fact that government can levy an excessive tax against Us today and take any amount of our money it arbitrarily determines is “fair” belies the notion we are free. Whatever of our own finances we retain is only by sufferance and not by right.

 

Even though you are an adult, who is responsible for your own choices concerning your safety, try not fastening your seat-belt as you cruise down the highway on a sunny Saturday drive.

 

One never really owns their property either. No matter how much one paid for it or how many years it has been paid off in full, one is forced to continue paying money to a government whose exactions and existence were never consented to by him.

 

And for many Americans, such as President Trump and even myself, who have often stated, “America will never be a socialist country”, America is already well on its way to being just that, if not an authoritarian fascist state, noted by Italian dictator Benito Mussolini to be “corporatism” and the “merger of corporate and state power”. Think of “too big to fail“, Bear Stearns and American International Group and the 2008 economic collapse and today’s Big Tech subsidies.

 

America began a major slide into fascism around 1913, and from that point on, when America enacted many of the ideas enumerated in Marx’s ‘Communist Manifesto’,  like a progressive income tax, a national centralized bank,  government ownership of land, government ownership and control of communications and transportation, government schools, regulation of installment buying, price controls and farm subsidies (corporate farms), government housing, social security and “free” education, and several other items. This has essentially resulted from a convergence of capitalism and socialism, a bit at a time, and not only has it slowly destroyed our economy (note that the current economic “boom” won’t last) education and the nation’s moral compass, it gave rise to the utter corruption of our political system and the Deep State.

 

By contrast, in a true capitalist system an actual free-market exists that is unfettered by government interference, finding its own level as the market demands at any given time. Supply and demand are self-regulating, and government controls are unnecessary limitations on economic freedom.

 

Today, far too many Americans have come to see government as their “rescuer” in their longing to have every need met by someone else. They expect government to solve all their problems, and that’s a real problem, since everything the government “gives” us exacts a price from our individual liberty, not to mention that D.C. draws sociopaths to it like a pile of cow manure draws flies.

 

Just as in Venezuela, our Deep State actors, in cooperation with billionaire socialist George Soros, have been most thorough in representing the current economy as a “capitalist economy”, even though America has not had a truly free-market capitalist system in over a hundred years, and they have facilitated full socialism into the political realm. And, when our economy finally does collapse under the weight of the current out-of-control spending and the ever growing fascism and socialism, these anti-American, anti-freedom authoritarians will attempt to fool Americans that capitalism is the problem and socialism is the cure, laying the blame at the feet of capitalism.

 

The socialist Presidential candidates, such as Bernie Sanders, who wants to forgive all university tuition debt and make healthcare “FREE” also, argue that “capitalism” has failed, and while it is true that the gap between the rich and poor is greater today than it has ever been in modern times, and that the middle class is shrinking and the elite oligarchy of the upper class is growing wealthier, it is due to the insertion of socialist policies into the economy. Pointing to capitalism as the problem is based on more falsehoods and fallacies than I can list; such claims are undeniably false.

Capitalism has not failed, but rest assured that the socialists’ dream of making education and healthcare — the two largest rackets in America — “free” only further ensures that Americans will be turned into debt slaves and bankrupts; and, to date, socialism has always failed in the basic mission to prepare young minds for life’s reality and to “first do no harm.”

 

All of the socialists’ policies in education and healthcare would still do nothing to reform the patent idiocies of the gender studies departments and the current misinterpretation and application of Title IX that infringes on heterosexual rights. Those policies also cannot rescue the “victims” of self-inflicted obesity and diabetes from their toxic consumption of Big Macs, Frosty dairy desserts and fries, since these dynamics rest on the wheels of futility, often depression and self-loathing, for which there is no happy ending outside of drastic changes in behavior.

 

One must also fully understand governments, especially under Obama and even under President Trump, always move in a direction of more control; just look the politicization of the IRS, FBI and the DOJ and the passage of the FISA Reauthorization, bump stock regulation and various new bill proposals. Given enough time, governments always create a state of despotism, and historically, governments never voluntarily reverse their level of control and introduce greater liberty.

 

Although the number is disputed by some, even President Ronald Reagan once noted that there are roughly 20,000 laws regarding gun control alone, and that’s just the federal illegitimate “laws”. So many other “laws” exist that it’s been estimated the average American commits approximately three felonies each day, and this makes the authorities’ task very simple, if for any reason they wish to victimize you. Just ask the Bundy Family, Hammond father & son, LaVoy Finicum’s Family, Lt. General Michael Flynn and Michael Cohen and a few others.

 

Thomas Jefferson once stated: “Even under the best forms of government, those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.”

 

God help America if the Democrats take the majority in the Congress and the Oval Office anytime in the near future and implement a more stringent and authoritarian form of the morally corrupt, economy destroying and de-civilizing ideology of socialism and the sick social system it embodies. Their system must be exposed for all the obnoxious, abhorrent and hellacious ideas it represents.

 

Too large a segment of America no longer cares for individualism, free markets, personal freedom and free minds, and in fact, they now mock the very virtues America was founded upon. They may have some ill-formed, nebulous notion on ethics that they borrowed from the Boy Scouts, but they basically assert that socialism and communism are as equally good as capitalism, while their reigning philosophy is a mixture of Marxism, identity politics, anti-male feminism and anti-white racism.

 

The institutional damage along the way has been epic, and the scene today is a debris field of broken ideas, that strayed far and away from the Founding Principles and the Original Intent of the U.S. Constitution. The far left still advocates the failed Marxist vision as having national support and purpose, as they rush to implement and organize a chaotic demolition of pretty rigorous American values and traditions and even historic monuments and paintings, in their insane desire to eradicate our republic, a country that still may be the “home of the brave” but is now barely recognizable as the “land of the free”.

 

America is the only country in the history of mankind that was founded on the principles of individualism and personal freedom, that manifested in the early rugged American independent nature of America’s people. America is still special, still unique and still that Oh So Exceptional nation that has millions across the globe rushing towards Her shores, even if it’s becoming harder to see the fact and the light of liberty shining from Lady Liberty’s torch is growing dimmer each day.

 

As the Founders’ spin in their graves, America is now rapidly nearing the point of the ultimate inversion, where the government is free to do anything it pleases and our individual liberty is suppressed and we must bow to the altar of the state and beg permission to act. And this is the stage of the darkest times of human history, the stage of total dominance and rule by violence and brute force.

 

Is it too late to restore and save our beloved America? Nothing is ever too late if it serves a righteous cause, and I defy anyone to name any better causes for Us to firmly stand together and defend than our God Given Rights, the Bill of Rights and individual liberty in America, even if it takes us into the streets of our nation in armed conflict and civil war.

 

A certain chapter in American history is closing and the future of America and freedom is at risk. Those of Us who love freedom and liberty and America must grab hold of the moment to seize the 21st century for our children’s children and their children and generations beyond to ensure their economic prosperity and liberty and a 21st century that becomes all the Founders envisioned, full of an appreciation for life and all America originally represented, God’s glory and grace.

A Forty Year Rush to War


Do you remember the old oil filter ads when the car mechanic told listeners, “You can pay me now or pay me later”? Those concerned about a war instigated by Iran should keep that axiom in mind. Do I advocate an Afghanistan/Iraq style military invasion? NO. Or at least not yet.

Shooting an unmanned drone out of international air space might not seem significant enough spank Iran, BUT an Iranian terrorist history of belligerence that often caused American deaths since 1979 should be taken into consideration after the Iranian military shoots at anything American.

 

The U.S. can start by destroying Iran’s military capabilities and going from there depending on Iranian idiocy.

A Forty Year Rush to War

Killing Americans Never Bothered Iran

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 6/21/2019 9:55 PM

 

Avoiding a U.S. military strike by a mere ten minutes recently, Iran has long danced across the razor’s edge and pushed the limits with America, from the first days of the Ayatollah’s revolution to the present, and despite anything to the contrary portrayed by the anti-American Communists and Democrats in our country, no one is to blame for Iran’s current sorry state of affairs, other than Iran’s mullahs and the rogue regime they head, a regime that should have been eradicated long before America ever had to enter Afghanistan.

 

Since May 12th and the Iranian attacks on four oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, close to the port city of Fujairah, the world has witnessed Iran also use mines to attack two other oil tankers on June 13th, the Kokuka Courageous and the Front Altair, while on that same day, according to CENTCOM, they attempted to shoot down a U.S. MQ-9 drone with a SA-7 surface-to-air missile. And now, on June 20th, Iran shot down a $187 million dollar unmanned MQ-4C Triton drone, the Navy’s version of the RQ-4A Global Hawk, over the Straits of Hormuz, the international waterway so vital for the world’s commerce and economy and the transport of oil and food.

This is Iran’s answer to President Donald Trump’s sanctions, and although they are hurting Iran’s economy and creating a steep rise in inflation and the ability to purchase much needed everyday items, they are not really affecting the Mullah’s policies, nor will they. President Trump and the free world seem to forget that this is the same regime that sent unarmed children into machine-gun fire [actual purpose: fodder to clear minefields] against Saddam Hussein during that prolonged war, 1980 to 1988, once their armaments ran short, rather than surrender or admit defeat.

 

Let’s not forget that the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and his Revolutionary Guard took our U.S. Embassy in 1979 and held fifty-two Americans hostage for 444 days; don’t forget that from that day forth, Iran has been the number one exporter of terrorism across the globe, as its terrorist acts still persist today, in the here and now, and through its Revolutionary Guard and Hezbollah, it has taken Lebanon, while it tries to take Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Yemen.

 

Let’s also not forget that Iran is responsible for the bombing of the U.S. Marine Barracks and 241 dead Marines in 1983, through its Hezbollah proxy, the U.S. Embassy bombing in Beirut and 17 dead Americans [actually 63 killed of which 17 were Americans], the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing and 19 dead Americans, not to mention disappearing U.S. citizens like Bob Levinson in 2007 and plotting to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador to the United States at a Washington, D.C. restaurant.

 

President Trump will make a terrible miscalculation for the country’s future, if he is holding back out of fear that any retaliation may be seen as “unpopular” and cost him the election, because that is just what Iran is hoping he will do. For forty years they’ve subverted U.S. policy in the Middle East, killed hundreds of American soldiers and always waited for the more malleable Leftist Democrats to take the Oval Office, so they could continue on, business as usual.

 

On December 2nd 2013, I wrote something that is even more true today: Does anyone really believe that Iran will ever stop attacking the U.S. and Israel and their interests across the globe, as long as the mullahs, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and Islam — the Mother of All Totalitarian Theocracies — keep Iran in a stranglehold?

 

Many so called experts say we can afford to wait, until Iran collapses under the weight of sanctions, or the people rise up an overthrow the Mullahs. This is unlikely to happen soon, since the Revolutionary Guard has infiltrated all sectors of Iran’s society and murder dissenters at the slightest provocation. The Mullahs are far too willing to sacrifice Iranians so long as they can stay in power and continue with their agenda to create a greater Iranian influence and control of most of the Middle East, especially Shia areas.

 

Do we wait at the expense of thousands of more deaths, in order not to alienate a certain “friendly” segment within Iran, or do we act and end the threat for all time, freeing those “friendlies” from their Islamic masters in the hopes they will understand?

 

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani recently warned: “We have always guaranteed the security of this strait. Do not play with the lion’s tail. You will regret it forever.”

 

And in the meantime, Iran continues at a furious pace to improve its nuclear weapons program. Some experts, such as James Woolsey (former Director of the CIA), William Graham (Pres. Reagan’s NASA administrator) and Fritz Ermarth (Special Assistant to the President under Reagan and former CIA), suggest that Iran already has nuclear weapons and that America should not be too hasty to enter a war with a regime that may not hesitate to use them, if threatened with a final defeat. They add that any retaliatory bombing would only start a war that would be far more difficult than anything seen in Afghanistan and Iraq.

 

I don’t think Iran has a fully functional nuclear weapon yet, or at least not one that they are able to deliver to the United States. If they did, I believe they would have already found a way to strike the U.S. — the Great Satan — by giving it to a terrorist and being able to deny any knowledge of it in the aftermath of the radioactive fallout.

Whatever America does, at some point in the future, Iran will not hesitate whenever they decide to deliver a murderous strike on our shores. No one should forget that former Iranian President  Ahmadinejad once warned that some 70,000 Revolutionary Guard were living in the U.S. as sleeper agents prepared to do their worse, ready to conduct widespread terror, if ever called upon by him or the Ayatollah. The unfolding chaos would be worth the risk, as it would smoke these domestic enemies from hiding, with their deaths being the final results and hopefully with few of our own dying.

 

Make no mistake. The Iranian attack on our drone was no “mistake” as Trump hopefully mused.

 

Shortly after the Triton drone was downed, President Trump tweeted: “We were cocked & loaded to retaliate … I asked, how many people will die. 150 people, sir, was the answer … 10 minutes before the strike I stopped it, not proportionate to shooting down an unmanned drone.”

 

America recently learned a retaliatory attack was in the works, over the drone downing, and it was focused on specific targets linked to Iran’s nuclear facilities. As such, those potential 150 potential casualties that prompted President Trump to back off of any retaliation were military personnel, for the most part. Iran has never had any compunction over inflicting U.S. casualties, and it never will.

 

No, we don’t need to rush to war, but I wouldn’t call accepting forty years of murders of Americans and destruction of American property a “rush”. America’s waste of time in this situation only assures us that whenever the time does arrive that we must deal with Iran militarily, it will be infinitely harder than it should have been, especially with Russia and China currently helping them circumvent sanctions.

 

On June 20th, Senator Lindsey Graham told reporters on Capitol Hill: “Here’s what Iran needs to get ready for: Severe pain inside their country”, adding his warning that if Tehran is “itching for a fight, they’re going to get one.”

 

Senator Graham also suggested the U.S. is “a lot closer today (to military conflict) than we were yesterday, and God only knows what tomorrow brings.” He also suggested the likelihood of a U.S. intervention in the region increases greatly if Israel launches its own campaign against Iran.

 

Rather than allow them to acquire viable nukes and missiles with enough range to hit America, or to be smuggled into a U.S. city by a proxy, the United States should mount a sustained bombing campaign, similar to the one used against Hanoi, that hits every nuclear facility and every government building and military installation, sooner rather than later, and without any “boots on the ground” or invasion; let the Iranians pick up the pieces as they will. And although a good many civilians might die too, most of the casualties will be those deserving of death.

 

America must gather up the democratic courage, the intellectual honesty and the willingness to act, or the consequences that so many are afraid of now will pale in comparison later. America must soon act to stop any and all threats from Iran, or the world that evolves ten years down the road will be infinitely more dangerous and deadly than the one we have today.

Trump accuses NY Times of ‘virtual treason’…


President Trump is accusing the New York Times of treason because the Leftist rag told the world about a classified U.S. mission to mess with Russia undoubtedly due Russian cyber warfare being conducted against the United States. The most public of which is cyber meddling in U.S. election cycles.

 

I would not be surprised to find out some day the USA and Russia have been exchanging cyber barbs for quite some time. Is it ethical or even legal for the NYT to expose clandestine and probably Classified cyber missions intended as bloodless reprisals to Russian cyber-crimes? It’s definitely not ethical! If exposing Classified actions against a foreign enemy isn’t illegal, IT SHOULD BE!

 

Justin Smith pointed this post on my Facebook Group Social Media Jail Conversations for Conservatives & Counterjihadists

(yeah I know, lengthy title. I had just emerged from Facebook jail and was quite annoyed at the time. So I created the group. Feel free to join the still relatively small group). The group URL to Justin’s share is HERE.

 

Justin did not include the URL from whence he found the post. Justin’s reason: The “URL is being banned by Facebook”. The banned website is The Patriot Brief. Interestingly The Patriot Brief picked up the article from The National Sentinel. It is from the original source I am cross posting below. In case you are curious The Patriot Brief link to the article is HERE.

Trump accuses NY Times of ‘virtual treason’ after report exposing U.S. cyber-targeting of Russian infrastructure: He’s right

 

By Jon Dougherty

June 16, 2019

The National Sentinel

 

NYT Building

 

(NationalSentinel) We have made the observation before that in the age of Donald Trump, the establishment media has become a national security liability due to the fact that major outlets will publish just about anything in order to undermine him.

 

But in doing so, these same outlets also undermine our country — and some 312 million American citizens — making them as big a threat to our security as any foreign power.

 

The New York Times did it again Sunday with a story claiming that the Trump administration has escalated attacks on Russia’s power grid:

 

The United States is stepping up digital incursions into Russia’s electric power grid in a warning to President Vladimir V. Putin and a demonstration of how the Trump administration is using new authorities to deploy cybertools more aggressively, current and former government officials said.

 

In interviews over the past three months, the officials described the previously unreported deployment of American computer code inside Russia’s grid and other targets as a classified companion to more publicly discussed action directed at Moscow’s disinformation and hacking units around the 2018 midterm elections.

 

Advocates of the more aggressive strategy said it was long overdue, after years of public warnings from the Department of Homeland Security and the F.B.I. that Russia has inserted malware that could sabotage American power plants, oil and gas pipelines, or water supplies in any future conflict with the United States.

 

But it also carries significant risk of escalating the daily digital Cold War between Washington and Moscow.

 

“It has gotten far, far more aggressive over the past year,” one senior intelligence official told the Times. “We are doing things at a scale that we never contemplated a few years ago.”

 

You know what else carries “significant risk?” Reporting classified information that provides valuable insight and intelligence for a nuclear-armed adversary.

 

So much for “Russia collusion,” right?

 

The revelations infuriated POTUS Trump, and rightfully so. He said on Twitter the paper committed “a virtual act of Treason” over its report, The Hill noted.

 

“Do you believe that the Failing New York Times just did a story stating that the United States is substantially increasing Cyber Attacks on Russia,” Trump tweeted. “This is a virtual act of Treason by a once great paper so desperate for a story, any story, even if bad for our Country.”

 

“Anything goes with our Corrupt News Media today,” he added. “They will do, or say, whatever it takes, with not even the slightest thought of consequence! These are true cowards and without doubt, THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!”

 

He also claimed the Times report was “NOT TRUE.”

 

The fact is the Times report most likely is true. Rational people understand that in light of report after report regarding Russia/China/Iran/North Korea targeting U.S. infrastructure, it makes sense for America — which is a cyber superpower — to respond in kind.

 

But these kinds of operations are not meant to be revealed. Doing so not only compromises said operations, but foreign intelligence agencies gleaning details from published open source information very often learn things that help them counter our moves.

 

Which, again, puts our country at risk.

 

The Times editors know this. They understand full well what revealing this kind of highly classified information can mean to an adversary.

 

And yet, they published it anyway. Just to ‘get Donald Trump.’

 

What does that say about them? It says — again — that the president has been right about our own press since he took office: They are more of an enemy than some of our adversaries. Or at least the equivalent.

 

Even though we have speech protections written into our Constitution via the First Amendment, you still can’t slander someone, libel them, yell ‘fire’ in a theater, or engage in various forms of “hate” speech.

 

Publishing highly classified information that provides ‘aid and comfort’ to an adversary should be legally actionable as well. Doing so harms our country by weakening our national security.

 

Think about it: Does anyone believe that FDR would not have punished the NYTimes or the Washington Post if either paper had published plans for the D-Day invasion, just because their editors believed Americans ‘had a right to know’?

 

Granted, we were in an actual war then, and we’re not fighting Russia — now. Though you could argue that in places like Syria, where Russian-sponsored mercenaries from the Wagner Group attacked U.S. forces and their allies early last year, amounts to a real conflict. Or Russia putting forces into Venezuela, in our hemisphere. Or encroaching on NATO’s eastern flank.

 

We have argued before that reporting the details about these highly classified operations are harming our national security at a time when the world is more dangerous than ever, not less, and for no good reason. The Times is just as guilty, in our view, as the U.S. officials who leaked the information. If they can be charged under the Espionage Act, then the ‘paper of record’ that published the information should be equally culpable.

 

The president is right.
