What our murderous thugs-in-uniform have done in Iraq: Putting it in perspective…

On my old site I had a sidebar article on what has been done to the Iraqi people.

I used the Lancet figures of, IIRC, 655,000 dead Iraqis. It’s hard to imagine that many dead people, so I came up with this:

Assume an average corpse length of 5′.

655,000 dead people x 5 feet = 3,275,000 feet total.

Divide that by 5280 (feet per mile) and that comes to 620.26 miles.

You could walk 620.26 miles on corpses laid head to toe, and never put your feet on the ground.

And for what, exactly???

Now, how many have we murdered in Afghanistan? Anyone know?

Of course, that does not include the 500,000 dead Iraqi kids we murdered through sanctions.

Collateral Murder. From wikileaks

SOURCE

WikiLeaks has released a classified US military video depicting the indiscriminate slaying of over a dozen people in the Iraqi suburb of New Baghdad — including two Reuters news staff. Reuters has been trying to obtain the video through the Freedom of Information Act, without success since the time of the attack. The video, shot from an Apache helicopter gun-site, clearly shows the unprovoked slaying of a wounded Reuters employee and his rescuers. Two young children involved in the rescue were also seriously wounded. For further information please visit the special project website www.collateralmurder.com.

Restore America Plan, being put in action now

SOURCE

Fellow Citizens and Patriots:

Margy and I encourage all of you to send this News-Letter and all News-Letters you receive from us to all of those on your email lists and encourage them to send them out in the same way. There is no charge for this News-Letter, nor is it copy written, so we humbly ask you to spread it as far, deep and wide as possible.

As most of you well know, America is in a very precarious position and has been for some time. It is up to the People, themselves, to take responsibility, on their own, or within small or even large groups, to make the differences and necessary changes which must come about if we are to save ourselves, our nation and our posterity from absolute tyranny and the evil so prevalent in all institutional systems on this earth, within all governments in this country and in most of the world.

Many among you may have been following with interest announcements by the delegates of the CC2009 regarding their Articles of Freedom, as well as the efforts by Sam Kennedy and his associates in the Restore America Plan. While it is true that efforts to restore America to De Jure government and to hold public officers accountable and responsible to the People are sorely needed, we have some reservations about CC2009’s efforts and serious reservations about the Restore America Plan.

Drastic changes back to Constitutional government are needed IMMEDIATELY, and the longer the People wait for “someone else” to do their work in this regard and assume their responsibilities, America will get worse by the hour! If you disbelieve this, take a very quick look at the multitude of freedoms that have been stolen from us since the JFK assassination in 1963. Obviously, one can go to the very beginnings of this nation to see the ongoing loss of freedoms, but we want to put this in a more contemporary and relative perspective. The loss of freedoms since the first “Emperor” Bush won the presidency have escalated rapidly to the present day, and the question we have asked many times is what are YOU, personally, doing about this? Not your neighbor, not your brother, not your leader – but what are you doing about this?

Personal responsibility in areas of importance is absolutely necessary if anything valuable and viable is to be accomplished and preserved. Remember, God helps those who help themselves and those who help others. In a like vein, the Constitution helps those who help themselves and those who help others. How many of you could truthfully face your God and say that you have helped yourselves and others to restore freedom and justice to this nation, by and through enforcing the Constitution(s) on reluctant governments? Those of you who have done this deserve the sincere gratitude of the American People.

This is not meant to be an accusation or criticism of anyone, who has not done so, but those of you who know us, know that Margy and I are completely truthful, blunt, and do not mince words, especially when it comes to saving our nation. We know this offends some people, but in our view, it will not offend those who know the truth and who realize that only the People can save America, and if they do not act, now, then, our America is truly gone. All anyone needs to do is look at what has been going on in Washington, D.C. for the past year or so, up to the present, most recent “OBAMINATION” to see that the thugs-and- thieves-in-suits, whom we pay royally for their “service”, do not give a damn about America or her People.

People will ask: “What can I do?” As Margy is fond of quoting, Margaret Mead’s statement, made a long time ago, will give them direction: “Never forget that a small group of committed Citizens can change the world; in fact, it’s the only thing that ever has.” If you, dear reader, are a sincere, true American Patriot and a believer in the founding documents of this nation, starting with the Articles of Confederation, the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, inclusive of the Bill of Rights, then, you know who and what you are and what you must do. To begin this, you could gather one or two others, who share your views and who are willing to ACT UPON THEM, who would then gather one or two more, and so on, and meet regularly each week or several times a month to practice and enforce the Constitutional methods that Margy and I have been teaching virtually all our lives.

When we began presenting seminars outside of New Mexico, we expected the seminar attendees to use these methods in their own areas and to reach the amount of success that we and our group were able to reach in New Mexico. As stated, enforcing the Constitution against evil is not easy, but if one is dedicated to that position, because that position upholds all that is right, just and Godly in this world, then it can be done. Jesus was all about freedom, truth and justice, as well as love and compassion. How can anyone claim to have love and compassion for his fellow humans, if he is unwilling to stand up for truth, justice and freedom? Remember, God helps those who help themselves and the Constitution helps those who enforce it.

We met Sam Kennedy, by and through Pastor Massad, over three and a half years ago, and we appeared together on several radio talk shows. Margy and I have presented many seminars in New England, and Sam attended the first one we presented in Massachusetts. As you well know, we are strictly Constitutional, but Sam went in a different direction. In a theoretically free country, anyone can do anything he wants, provided he does not harm others. The Constitution helps people, it does not harm them, but the methods that Sam and others have taught for years have not appeared to help people, and, in fact, have harmed many.

Sam called us in early March to see if we would consider coming “on board” with the Restore America Plan. The letter below was our answer to Sam, and we hope you will read it to have better understanding of our positions. During the preparation time for this Plan, we did not want to present this letter to the patriot community to influence anyone in one way or another. Each has to make his own choice, based upon his personal beliefs. However, since the due date for presentation of this Plan, as announced by Sam, himself, was yesterday, March 29th, and since everything would be resolved by March 31st, again, according to Sam, we now feel it is incumbent upon us to release this letter.

Yesterday evening, we listened on rbn.com to the John Stadtmiller “Intel Report” over which Sam, Ralph Winterrowd, John, and another fellow named Ron McDonald discussed the Restore America Plan. If these four people are an example of the “leaders” of the patriot community in this nation, then, this nation will never recover. People should choose their leaders wisely. The leaders who choose themselves and impose their “leadership” upon the People are not the true leaders. RememberPlato’s Republic in which leadership is given to the man who does not seek or want it. Beware of those who covet leadership and claim to represent your best interests.

During yesterday’s radio program, we heard so much equivocation, mostly from Sam, grand standing, from just about everyone, argumentation, pettiness and outright crap, that it was a waste of two hours of our valuable time! Exaggeration, off point remarks, unanswered questions, obliquely posed questions, and obscure positions abounded. It sounded like four unruly kids arguing over who was going to have control of the toys and not the remarks of erudite, well spoken presenters based in anything of substance. Sam announced, some time ago, that everything would be resolved by the 31st of March, but in “answer” to a few questions, he said that people have to be “patient” and wait another “30 to 60 days”, and then we will see changes within the next “one to two years”. That is not what he originally stated when he previously announced that everything would be resolved by March 31st. He also stated that the De Jure grand juries would not indict any politicians or government officers in the de facto governments for their actions, but rather the Plan’s intent is to show compassion, forgiveness and mercy, unless the governors, purportedly put on notice, yesterday, that their bonds have been arrested, refuse to take their oaths to support the De Jure government allegedly being restored. However, he did not say that, in that event, the grand juries would indict. He said nothing of the military role and when pressed as to how this plan would be enforced, would this be done by military force, he refused to give details, claiming that to do so could put people in jeopardy. When Sam was pressed as to who or what gave him the authority to write these orders to be presented to the governors, he danced around the question, spouted about sovereignty and being a “child of God”, equivocated that he “just signed the cover letter” that accompanied the orders, when he has stated before that he wrote the orders.

Sam made claims that the Federal Reserve Bank is being dismantled “as we speak” and that the IRS is basically “going out”. These claims, if true, would be absolutely wonderful, but Sam presented no evidence, whatsoever, to support his claims, nor is any evidence apparent of these actions having taken place. On another point, concerning Sam’s claims that the governors of all fifty states had been served notice of the intent of the Restore America Plan regarding restoration of De Jure governments, oaths and bonds, etc., Ralph Winterrowd stated emphatically that he had spoken with the office of the governor of Alaska, on several occasions, and that he was told that the governor had never heard of the Restore America Plan. Ralph did say that this could have been a false statement, but he appeared very skeptical and contentious about the Plan. How do we know if any governors have been served or not, and who is going to confirm this, if “secrecy” must be maintained to “protect people”? This whole thing sounds like wishful thinking and fantasy. Sam also mentioned in that broadcast that some of the “elite” and some of the “banksters” are “on board” with his Plan, because they know that the system cannot continue on its present course. He even claimed that the Vatican and others in the “elite” are on board because the present course will no longer benefit them. These evil entities have profited enormously from the suffering, warfare, financial shenanigans, fraud, taxation, etc. perpetrated by all of them against the People, for centuries, so why would they suddenly just abandon something so lucrative for this “Plan”? Again, folks, things just don’t add up here.

While most of us would like to see such things take place, as have been represented by Sam, the likelihood of these tyrants giving up their “gig” is, in our view, slim to zero, especially based upon the work and “orders” of approximately only 1300 or so American Citizens. Do these Citizens, no matter how well intended, speak for you? And if so, under what lawful authority? Did you extend your authority to them and give them permission to speak for you?

Those of you who have been true to the Constitution(s) and those of you willing to go back to them, can go to our website to learn the very simple, easy and direct methods we advocate and, hopefully, apply them in your own communities, wherever needed, to restore just Constitutional governance. For those of you who are interested, we have CDs of these methods, taken from a case Margy prevailed, twice, against the fourth largest holding company in America, and we also have DVDs of some of our seminars. Donations in any amount are always welcome and greatly appreciated.

The letter we sent to Sam is presented below.

Best regards,

Jack and Margy

What the US is fighting for in Afghanistan

https://i1.wp.com/whatreallyhappened.com/IMAGES/afghan-opium.jpg

Legalizing it is the only answer.

The only reason they farm and sell it is because of the money it brings. Take out the outrageous profits by making it legal and it will disappear.

And just because it’s legal doesn’t mean people will use it. The illegal status of drugs does not stop people from using them.

You’d think people would have learned from alcohol prohibition. But nooooo! They didn’t learn a damn thing.

And now we are enabling it. We are fighting for the drug dealers instead of against them. That is only because our government has a vested interest in the drug trade. They created the problem and they provided a phony solution, and they did it all for the money.

Twilight of the Psychopaths

Twilight of the Psychopaths

“Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.” – John Lennon, before his murder by CIA mind-control subject Mark David Chapman

When Gandhi was asked his opinion of Western civilization he said it would be a good idea. But that oft-cited quote, is misleading, assuming as it does that civilization is an unmitigated blessing.

Civilized people, we are told, live peacefully and cooperatively with their fellows, sharing the necessary labour in order to obtain the leisure to develop arts and sciences. And while that would be a good idea, it is not a good description of what has been going on in the so-called advanced cultures during the past 8,000 years.

Civilization, as we know it, is largely the creation of psychopaths. All civilizations, our own included, have been based on slavery and “warfare.” Incidentally, the latter term is a euphemism for mass murder.

The prevailing recipe for civilization is simple:

1) Use lies and brainwashing to create an army of controlled, systematic mass murderers;

2) Use that army to enslave large numbers of people (i.e. seize control of their labour power and its fruits);

3) Use that slave labour power to improve the brainwashing process (by using the economic surplus to employ scribes, priests, and PR men). Then go back to step one and repeat the process.

Psychopaths have played a disproportionate role in the development of civilization, because they are hard-wired to lie, kill, injure, and generally inflict great suffering on other humans without feeling any remorse. The inventor of civilization — the first tribal chieftain who successfully brainwashed an army of controlled mass murderers—was almost certainly a genetic psychopath. Since that momentous discovery, psychopaths have enjoyed a significant advantage over non-psychopaths in the struggle for power in civilizational hierarchies — especially military hierarchies.

ISRAEL: PLEASE, NO MORE BIN LADEN TAPES, NOBODY IS BUYING IT!

SOURCE

By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor

The new audio tape from “Osama bin Laden” taking responsibility for the idiotic and childish incident in Detroit where moronic Nigerian armed with a useless “bomb” is simply too much.  Now using audio tapes because, supposedly, nobody in Al Qaeda got a flash drive video recorder for Christmas is even more of a joke.  Please, with the hundreds of millions our Saudi allies have given to terrorists, a video camera the size of an Ipod might have been a nice touch.   Even funnier was releasing the audio, using algorithm software probably illegally downloaded off the internet, and giving it to Al Jazeera.

Pundit Debbie Schussell, former Mark Siljander (VT staff writer) staffer, has bitterly complained about the strong ties between Fox News and Al Jazeera.  Fox owner, Rupert Murdoch, is the most powerful “influencer” of the ultra-rightists in Israel.  Attempts by the press to present Al Jazeera of today as the “pro-terrorist” media it seemed like many years ago is an epic misrepresentation.

A further abuse, of course, is not only that we are no longer seeing the easily debunked bin Laden doubles whose video tapes were “mysteriously” released by SITE Intelligence, the Rita Katz/Israeli group that seems to find them in trash bins behind delicatessens.  The “new” audio tape itself contains statements claiming credit for 9/11 in direct contradiction to the real bin Laden videos, the only ones authenticated.  If you wondered why the FBI doesn’t list Osama bin Laden as a suspect in 9/11, I think you have your answer.  If they think the bin Laden “admissions” aren’t credibile, I wonder who the FBI is investigating or if they have simply been told to mind their own business.

Not In My Name

From  Political Theatrics

On the 25th of October I wrote an article entitled “Americans:You Did This” and with it came a plethora of support and a flood of disdain. Only a few days have gone by since the publishing of the Op-Ed piece,and as of this morning  my inbox has accumulated a staggering number of 63 hate-filled emails. What stunned me wasn’t the fact that 63 individuals took the time to send me their informal opinions in regards to my post but that they didn’t comment on the article itself. There were about 30 comments and only one was in opposition. One.

I cannot give an answer for those who decided not to comment as to why they didn’t, nor do I care to – though I have my own theories including the probability of the persons being refuted by either myself or readers of Political Theatrics.

Every single hate-mail I have since received contains the exact same theme and premise – that I was ‘taking my anger out on everyone’ and generalizing a social order in its totality. That I am putting the blame on everyone including those who “didn’t vote for Bush” or “didn’t vote for Obama” or “didn’t vote” at all.

The same individuals who are wagging their tongues over my impartial subjection of their kind due to the United States imperialist endeavors do not,at the same time, take issue with unconditionally blaming other factions for reserved areas of concern. Also, those who take issue with my contentions are suggesting I “relocate” because my opinions do not fit in with mainstream beliefs.

Mainstream beliefs concludes that the war in Iraq is not ‘ok’ anymore,as it once was,but it was a necessity at the time and this conclusion came to head with no substantiation, no evidence, and no validation.
Mainstream belief is that there is and should be a “global war on terror” led by our men and women,and this ‘war’ includes spending an infinite amount of money we do not have in order to kill and desecrate, pillage and rape.
Mainstream belief is that every dead Iraqi and Afghan for whom we then turn into a statistic is to be unashamedly brushed under the table with a headstone that reads ‘collateral-damage’.

It’s not that a majority of these people are cruel or wish to substantiate the evil that their government does, it’s that they don’t care and are at the same time shamelessly aware of their ignorance.

The premise that you don’t know or you didn’t know can’t be taken seriously anymore, especially when an abundance of information is there for you to find.

My article was not at all brutal or harsh, especially when I think of what the victims of American imperialism could say if given a chance to speak to us. Imagine what these innocent people think of us.

You’ve helped steal daughters from their fathers, sons from their siblings, husbands from their wives and your defense is that you didn’t do it by your own hands. That is why I have simply called you all accessories to war crimes instead of direct perpetrators.
54% of our taxes do not go to improve our disheveled education system, our broken healthcare structure, nor to aid the middle class and poor – no – 54% goes to war .

You are literally throwing your hard earned money into a bonfire built with Iraqi and Afghan bones, and those who still vehemently support these expansionist wars are dancing around the fires unprincipled.

There is nothing ‘un-American’ about holding a position contrary to mainstream belief nor are you in error if your premise stands in stern opposition over the wars being led by bastions of Western Occupation Forces.

The victims of our ‘America-brand’ wars have no means of speaking out to Americans,thus I am here to be their voice – this is my duty and my commitment until justice is served.

The people we are persecuting have done us no harm and what they have seen of ‘democracy’ is enough to make anyone loathe this nation and it’s apathetic masses who concern themselves with MTV instead of current and International affairs.

And I believe you, regarding the hate mail you get. You should consider them to be badges of honor.
