Senator: Clapper’s Crimes More Harmful to America than Snowden’s

Director of National Security James Clapper is in trouble. For example:


Clapper and master Obama going to the can
The author of the Patriot Act and former chairman of the House Judiciary Committee – Congressman James Sensenbrenner – says that Clapper should be prosecuted for lying to Congress and the American people about NSA spying.

One of the co-chairs of the 9/11 Commission – Lee Hamilton agrees.

As does Congressman Tom McClintock.

 
NSA propagandist John Schindler
7 members of the House Judiciary Committee (Sensenbrenner, Issa, Franks, Farenthold, Gowdy, Labrador and Poe ) have asked the Department of Justice to investigate Clapper for perjury.

And Senator Rand Paul says that Clapper’s crimes have hurt America far more than Snowden’s.

And a huge majority of Americans agree that Clapper should be prosecuted for perjury.

Bill O’Reilly Warns That Rich People Are "In Danger," Asks That You Pray

For once and the very first time, O'Reilly is right

THE WIRE
By Philip Bump
12/19/2013

Fox News' demure 8 p.m. host Bill O'Reilly took a serious moment on Wednesday night to warn the country that rich people are in imminent danger, because one time a lottery winner got murdered. Yes, the myth of the embattled rich is back, thanks to the news peg of a half-billion-dollar Mega Millions jackpot.


The rich get too rich, and O'Reilly is getting nervous
In the wake of the Occupy Wall Street movement and, more importantly, in the run-up to the 2012 election, rich people found themselves under attack. In 2011, well before he became a vice presidential candidate, Rep. Paul Ryan worried that the "politics of division are making a big comeback," concerned about a trend toward trying to "exploit fear and envy." As President Obama has turned new attention to income inequality, the rich are again in need of champions. (Well, not "in need of," but being nice to rich people has never been a losing strategy.) 


On Monday, National Review's Kevin Williamson called envy (of the rich) "the most embarrassing" sin. You should be embarrassed of being angry at inequality, America!


Enter Bill O'Reilly. To be fair, the argument he made in his segment was slightly more complicated than our articulation above. Slightly. The tweet at right, which tipped us off to the segment, is the golden center of O'Reilly's argument. As that was on-screen, O'Reilly somberly intoned, "Every affluent person in America is in danger. Every one." Really hammering it home.



How he gets to "pity the rich" from "two people won the lottery" is pretty terrific / creative / amazing. Here's some key quotes so you can walk through the arguments.

"We have two new one-percenters in America tonight. …

Here's what happens when a person is wealthy. First, he or she becomes a target … so rich people have to hire lawyers. Lots of lawyers because they will be sued, extorted and stolen from. …

Take the case of 42-year-old Abraham Shakespeare, who won $30 million in the Florida lottery four years ago. … One year ago this woman, Doris Moore, was convicted of murdering Mr. Shakespeare, part of a scheme to get his money. …

There are legions of lawyers lined up to bludgeon wealthy Americans and corporations. They work for a piece of the action. They don't charge you up front. So ruthless people can hire them to try to extort money in civil court. If they lose, so what? Every affluent person in America is in danger. Every one." 

See that? One, some people won the lottery. Two, lottery winners get murdered and are stolen from. Three, the rich — at large — are in danger. Bill O'Reilly, who is rich — note the "us" when he notes that half of America makes more than $52,000 a year — used the occasion of people winning the lottery to complain about things that he doesn't like, but mostly to garner sympathy for him and other rich people. Nicely done.

It's an innovation that Ryan and Williamson can only envy. People want to kill the rich and steal their money! It's practically feudal. And here poor dumb America didn't even realize this risk existed, assuming that wealth was a lark. "Yes, we are a rich nation," O'Reilly concluded, "but the cost of living well is out of sight." He had one request of his audience, only 29 percent of whom earn more than $75,000 a year, one thing that he asked they do for those unfortunate lottery winners and, presumably, their wealthy brethren. Pray.

SEAL Team 6 Murdered

SEAL TEAM 6 WILL BE AVENGED BY THEIR SPECIAL FORCES BROTHERS

FORBIDDEN TV
By Alexandra Bruce
12/16/2013

The members of SEAL Team 6 were all squashed together in a 50-year old helicopter in Afghanistan and flown right into an area where the Taliban would be able to take a perfect shot at them - which is exactly what happened - and all aboard the rickety craft perished and their bodies quickly disposed of, similarly to how the body of "Osama bin Laden", who the group were alleged to have killed in Abbottabad, Pakistan was quickly disposed of, just a few months earlier.


The announcement of this group's involvement in such an operation was a breach in their own security and Operational Security, in general.

First, that 30 men, who had cost the government millions of dollars to train were all squashed together in the same aircraft went contrary to security procedures. Members of elite forces are usually split up into smaller groups during transport, exactly for the purposes of avoiding the mass-murder of these fighters, who are very important military assets.


SEAL Team 6 will be avenged by their SF Brothers
Second, it was highly unusual that they should all have been inside an ancient relic of a transport helicopter, when regulations call for them to travel by modern aircraft capable of quick, evasive maneuvers.

Third, the family members of those who died do not believe any of the government's rationalizations for why any of the above happened. 
So, why should we?





The filthy cowards in this image will all be held accountable for the murder of SEAL Team 6

Moreover, the claim that it was "Osama bin Laden" who was assassinated during their raid of Abbottabad is specious on numerous counts, as bin Laden had been long been considered dead by the Arab press and the former Prime Minister of   Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto accidentally let it slip that he had been assassinated by bin Laden's "special son" in al Qaeda, Omar Sheikh, during this 2007 interview with David Frost at around 6:15 into this clip:




Bhutto, herself was assassinated soon after this interview.

Omar Sheikh, the British-born son of Pakistani immigrants was said by former Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf in his book, 'In the Line of Fire' to be: "...originally recruited by British intelligence agency, MI6, while studying at the London School of Economics," and "at some point, he probably became a rogue or double agent".




A report by the Pittsburgh Tribune stated that there "are many in Musharraf's government who believe that [Omar] Sheikh's power comes not from the ISI [Pakistan's intelligence agency], but from his connections with our own CIA."




Of course, we have all heard that Osama bin Laden, himself worked for the CIA, during Russia's war with Afghanistan.

The moral of this story is that if you work at a high security job for the US government, you may easily end up murdered by your boss.

As for Omar Sheikh, he is currently being held in Hyderabad Central Jail in Pakistan.

Saudi Arabia Threatens To Torch Region

Apostate Saudi scum try on nutcase Netanyahu's Armageddon option; will wind up a province of Iran or Syria

PRESS TV
By Finian Cunningham
12/19/2013

Within hours of Saudi Arabia warning its Western patrons that it would “act alone” in pursuing its regional interests, three Iranian Revolutionary Guards were killed in a roadside bomb blast in the country’s southeast province.


Goat-herding Saudis now threaten the world with destruction
Is this Saudi Arabia delivering on its veiled threat to sabotage recent Western diplomacy and to torch the Middle East?

The three Iranian soldiers killed on Wednesday are the latest victims in a spate of covert military attacks to have hit the Sistan-Baluchistan Province bordering Afghanistan and Pakistan.




At the end of October, 14 Iranian border guards were killed in an attack near the city of Saravan. Two weeks later, the provincial prosecutor, Ebrahim Hamidi, and his driver, were shot dead in a hit-style assassination in the regional capital of Zabol.

The groups behind the upsurge in violence in Iran’s remote border area – so-called Jaish al Adl and Jundallah – share the same extremist religious beliefs as the Takfiri militants that Saudi Arabia is bankrolling and arming in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon and Yemen. All these Takfiris have an overlapping relationship with the Al Qaeda network – which was created originally by Saudi, American and British military intelligence during the 1980s.


Obama/CIA owned Saudi spy "Chemical Bandar"
It is therefore reasonable to conjecture that the latest terror attacks to have hit Iran are being sponsored by Saudi Arabia. The intelligence, logistics and extremist ideology – in particular the venomous hatred towards Shia Islam – are consistent with Saudi control. An added factor is motivation.




This week the House of Saud reiterated its bitter sense of betrayal by Washington and London with regard to recent geopolitical developments.

In an opinion article published in the New York Times on Tuesday, the Saudi ambassador to Britain was scathing in remarks about mercurial American and British foreign policy in the Middle East.


Saudis responsible for CIA/FSA gas attacks in Syria

Mohammed bin Nawaf bin Abdulaziz al Saud complained about how a century-old alliance with Washington and London was being strained to breaking point, and that Saudi Arabia would be forced to “go it alone” to safeguard its regional interests.


Al Saud wrote: “We believe that many of the West’s policies on both Iran and Syria risk the stability and security of the Middle East. This is a dangerous gamble, about which we cannot remain silent, and will not stand idly by.”

This outburst, laced with veiled threats of sinister dissenting action, is but the latest wave of fury emanating from the House of Saud.


In recent weeks, similar acrimonious comments have been issued by Saudi spymaster, Prince Bandar bin Sultan, the foreign minister Prince Faisal and former interior chief, Prince Turki.

The Saudi bone of contention is their perception that the Western powers are dropping the regime-change agenda towards Shia allies Syria and Iran, both of which are seen as a nemesis by the Wahhabi House of Saud.


CIA owned "King" of Jordan will fall with Saudi apostates
The P5+1 interim agreement over Iran’s nuclear energy program and the possible normalization of relations between Washington and Tehran is causing the Saudi rulers to lose sleep.

They fear that in time the diplomatic process will serve to bolster Iran’s influence in the Middle East at the expense of Saudi demise.



As for Syria, the Saudis have been livid ever since US President Barack Obama backed away last September from his initial plan to launch air strikes against the government of Bashar Assad in Damascus.

As the Saudi diplomat commented in the New York Times: “The West has allowed one regime to survive and the other to continue its program for uranium enrichment, with all the consequent dangers of weaponization. What price is ‘peace’ though, when it is made with such regimes?”


Iran, Syria will turn Saudi Arabia into a parking lot
It’s cloyingly rich for the absolute, feudal monarchy of Saudi Arabia to refer to elected governments in Syria and Iran as “regimes”. It’s even richer coming from the Saudi regime that has fomented and fuelled much of the bloodshed in Syria with its support for myriad Takfiri terror gangs – the latest incarnation of which is the so-called Islamic Front.


Saudi angst at Western betrayal will have hit volcanic proportions after Washington and London are now reportedly relenting on the Assad government being part of the political transition in Syria. This, however, is not any benign conversion by the West. It is simply tacit acknowledgment by them that the covert terrorist regime-change agenda has been defeated – after nearly three years of mayhem and more than 100,000 dead.


What the Saudis (and Israelis) are mistaking is the perception of a fundamental change in Western policy.

Earlier this month, speaking at the Brookings Institute, both President Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry spoke of “tactical change” not “strategic change”.

That suggests that what the West is aiming at is to exercise its geopolitical objectives towards Syria and Iran through different means, that is, politically not militarily.



The trouble with the Saudis (and Israelis) is that they are stuck in a single-groove mentality of aggression, unable to “appreciate” the more sophisticated arts of political machination.


But like a spurned mistress, there seems to be no way to assuage Saudi anguish at being “betrayed”.

Given Saudi Arabia’s growing collaboration with the Israeli regime in military intelligence and the already rampant covert terrorism that these two are sponsoring across the region, the House of Saud’s threats of “going it alone” are a matter of deep concern.

The explosive sectarian tensions that Saudi Arabia and Israel are recklessly detonating could so easily ignite into all-out regional war.



When the Saudis talk about wanting “regional stability and security” what they really mean is the diametric opposite for it is only through conflict and division that this despotic regime can maintain itself.

“We will act to fulfill [our] responsibilities, with or without the support of our Western partners,” wrote the Saudi diplomat.

Ominously, al Saud added: “Nothing is ruled out in our pursuit of sustainable peace and stability in the [region].”

Are the latest terror attacks in Iran evidence that the Saudis are indeed “going it alone” – in a desperate attempt to drive the region over a precipice so that their despotic regime can survive?
