“The irony is that the U.S. is protecting a pro-Iran Shiite regime in Baghdad against a Sunni-based insurgency while at the same time supporting a Sunni-led movement against the Iran-backed dictatorship in Syria,” Hayden wrote. “The U.S. is caught in the contradictions of proxy wars, favoring Iran’s ally in Iraq while trying to displace Iran’s proxy in Syria.”
Our Nation’s founders warned against entangling alliances and meddling in the affairs of other nations. But the beat goes on, and on, and on. War Drums.

I’m sure the television news told you all about the U.N. Small Arms Treaty being passed. (See Last Post) No??? The Rothschild Zionist network at ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, FOX and MSNBC were busy following the Protocol 12; Control the Press to the point that even newspapers didn’t report the event on the last page. The reason television news and newspapers are not informing the American citizens is to prevent the militias of the several states from forming and beginning to train. A very clever idea; don’t you think? They want to keep you in the dark until it is too late.
The old argument that the Senate will not ratify this treaty, can easily be debunked, when you remember that the Senate did not pass the U.N. Agenda 21. In fact they refused to pass it, but it got passed by an Executive Order of Bill Clinton. The same will be true with this treaty and it really doesn’t matter who wins the presidential election.

Per Rand Paul:
And while I have received a classified briefing on the extent of the spying, I can’t share with you the exact size and scope of the undercutting of our right to privacy, but believe me, it extends beyond your wildest imagination.
So I hope you’ll take a few moments to read Judge Napolitano’s op-ed below.
Sen. Rand Paul’s government reckoning
By Andrew Napolitano
Gazillions. That’s the number of times that the federal government has spied on Americans since Sept. 11, 2001, through the use of drones, legal search warrants, illegal search warrants, federal agent-written search warrants, and just plain government spying. This is according to Sen. Rand Paul, Kentucky Republican, who, when he asked the government to tell him what it was doing to violate our privacy, was given a briefing that was classified. The senator — one of just a few in the U.S. Senate who believes that the Constitution means what it says — was required by federal law to agree not to reveal what spies and bureaucrats told him during the briefing in reply to his inquiries about the government’s violations of the right to privacy.
The rules for classified briefings of members of Congress on areas of government behavior that the government wants to keep from its employers — the American people — are a real Catch-22. Those rules allow representatives and senators to interrogate government officials about government behavior that they are afraid to reveal, and it requires those officials to answer honestly and completely, but the rules keep the interrogations secret and they expressly prohibit members of Congress from telling anyone what they have learned.
So Mr. Paul and his colleagues who joined in the secret briefing now know the terrible truth about the government watching us, but they cannot reveal what they know. Mr. Paul, who is the son of Rep. Ron Paul — the greatest congressional defender of limited government in our era — when asked what he learned at these secret briefings, and aware that he could be prosecuted for telling the truth, chose a fictional word to describe the vast number of violations of privacy at the hands of federal agents revealed to him in the briefings — gazillions. Mr. Paul’s personal courage in using a word like gazillions to convey an oblique message of truth in the face of an unjust law that commanded his silence reminded me of St. Thomas More’s silence in the face of an unjust law that commanded his assent to the king’s headship of the Church.
The feds are no more happy with the senator’s personal courage than the king was with St. Thomas More’s, but there is not much they can do about it. If you check out your dog-eared Webster’s Unabridged you will find that it does not list the word “gazillions” or any form of it. Yet most of us hearing or seeing that word understand it to mean some huge — perhaps even incalculable — number.
The point here is terrifying. If the government derives its powers from the consent of the governed, how can it do things to us for which we have never given consent? And when it does these things — like send a drone over your back yard to learn who is coming to your Saturday barbeque or to see what fertilizer you are using in your vegetable garden or to take a peek into your living room or bedroom — and when the laws that the government has written prevent our elected representatives from telling us what it is doing, we are at the doorstep of tyranny. The government gave Mr. Paul the distinct impression that it was afraid of our exercise of our personal freedoms and thus it needs to watch us as we do so. This is the same government whose stated principal purpose is to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution, and thus personal freedom.
What has become of the Jeffersonian value of the primacy of the individual over the government in a free society? How have we lost the American value that the government works for us, we don’t work for the government? What remains of the constitutionally-guaranteed right to be left alone?
The answer to these questions goes to the nature of human freedom and personal courage. Freedom lies in our hearts, but to survive it must do more than just lie there. Its essence is the exercise of unfettered choices and those we make address our perpetual yearning for truth. This is a natural process that — just like the muscles in our bodies — will atrophy if unused.
So, when the government scares us into the nonuse of freedom, we have only ourselves to blame when Big Brother comes calling. And when he does come, on his face there will be no smile.
When it comes to the MSM (CNN, FOX, MSNBC, BBC) I don’t believe a word of anything they say. I always encourage people to aggressively seek alternative sources of information. Online News, Forums, iReports, YouTube ….
The war drums are alive and well. This arty on RT is of note.
… I have information that a military invasion of Western forces into Syria is expected to take place in August-September. But there’s hardly any reason for justifying such invasion. They’ve searched for this reason for the whole year. But they didn’t give any information about the exact deadline. Now it’s done – and we should expect new provocations and new information during the time that is left. If the world believes this, it will empower the aggressor.
RT: What kind of information regarding this decision is there? What is the reaction to it in Syria?
AK: I’m not going to reveal my sources. I have no doubt about their reliability. In Syria there’s no panic or certitude about such an attack. People in Yugoslavia, Libya and Iraq didn’t believe in the possibility of such invasion until recently. One of the indirect pieces of evidence regarding the information I have is the widely spread news that Russia and China allegedly agreed to remove Assad. This is as much a lie as all the trash that the media sells to its audience.

Just another connect the DOTS report. Today, Barack issued yet another Executive Order focused on CRISIS, EMERGENCY, NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS and HOME LAND SECURITY.
The focus is on Communications this time around. Maybe it is just another E.O. or maybe when you start connecting the dots, does one wonder what may, or may not, be going on.
NDRP, NDAA (Not an E.O.) and H.R. 347 … are they being proactive on what they are assuming might go down ?
Sec. 5.2. The Secretary of Homeland Security shall: (a) oversee the development, testing, implementation, and sustainment of NS/EP communications, including: communications that support Continuity of Government; Federal, State, local, territorial, and tribal emergency preparedness and response communications; non-military executive branch communications systems; critical infrastructure protection networks; and non-military communications networks, particularly with respect to prioritization and restoration;
There is mention of ‘wired communications’ which could include cable television, the internet, et al.
There is reference to Communications Act of 1934
In the event of a general war and attack upon the Nation, a national telecommunications capability must exist that will support telecommunications requirements with respect to national security, survival and recovery. The development of survivable telecommunications to support essential functions (including an emergency broadcasting system), and technical compatibility of signaling methods, transmission modes, switching facilities, and terminal devices to permit exchange of communications over the surviving media of all systems, government or commercial, are crucial elements of such a national capability.
Section 706 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, confers authority to the President in the matter of suspension of all rules and regulations pertaining to the use and operation of telecommunications facilities, public or private during wartime emergencies.
