Obama Warns Isis Terrorists 'Will Target U.S. Cities And Kill With Abandon"

White House criminal announces next false-flag attack in America - "terror" and crises the only thing holding impeachment at bay as scandals of IRSGate, VAGate, NSAGate and a long list of others smoulder and threaten to burst into flame

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned.


"Be SCARED, be VERY SCARED!!!"
Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil.

The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley.



“This is a group of people who are extraordinarily dangerous,” said Senator Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat who leads the upper house intelligence panel. “And they'll kill with abandon.”

In a separate TV interview, Mike Rogers, leader of the House Intelligence Committee warned that leaders of Isis are looking for a spectacular attack that would help them raise money and recruit more fighters.

“Isis would like to have a Western-style attack to continue this notion that they are the leading jihadist group in the world,” said Republican Mr Rogers.

The politicians, who have access to some of America's most sensitive secrets and receive regular detailed briefings from the nation's spy agencies, offered dire predictions of an attack on the United States or its European allies if the militants were not confronted.


“They have announced that they don't intend to stop,” Ms Feinstein said. “They have announced that they will come after us if they can, that they will, quote, 'spill our blood'.”

The threat, Mr Rogers said, could include Americans who have trained with Isis fighters. He said there were hundreds of Isis-trained Americans who could return to the US with their American passports.

“I'm very concerned because we don't know every single person that has an American passport that has gone and trained and learned how to fight,” he said.


Mr Rogers said US intelligence agencies were tracking Americans known to have travelled to the region. If they helped Isis fighters, he said, they should be charged under laws that ban Americans from aiding terrorists.

The top Democrat on Mr Rogers' intelligence panel, Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland, was more sceptical. He said more needed to be known before judging whether extremists planned to commit terrorist acts in the US any time soon.




He said the group's priority now seemed to be to hold on to territory it had gained, rather than export violence.

“It is extremely urgent, but you don't just rush in,” Mr Ruppersberger said.

It was a view shared by Adam Smith, a Washington state Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee: “We can't simply bomb first and ask questions later,” he said.

Will American People Ever Rise Again?

Given their performance to date, most likely not

Labor Day is a holiday that has outlived its time. Like Christmas, Labor Day has become a time-out period. As Christmas has become a shopping spree, Labor Day has become the last summer holiday.


The holiday originated in 1887 to celebrate the contribution made by American workers to the strength and prosperity of the United States. 

The first Monday in September was chosen by President Grover Cleveland to avoid a May date that would keep alive the memory of the previous year’s Haymarket Massacre in which workers striking for an eight-hour day suffered casualties from the Chicago police. As time passed union leadership became a career rather than a movement in behalf of a cause, but the labor movement in its initial years was reformist. 


It brought safer working conditions into industry and manufacturing. Unions served as a countervailing power and constrained the exploitative power of capital.

An industrial or manufacturing job was a ladder of upward mobility that made the US an opportunity society and stabilized the socio-political system with a large middle class. 


People being told by corporate MSM it is now O.K. to eat trash
A large and thriving industrial and manufacturing sector provided many white collar middle class jobs for managers, engineers, researchers and designers, and American universities flourished as did their graduates.

The labor unions provided the Democratic Party with a financial base in labor that served as a countervailing power to the Republican base in manufacturing and finance. Whether it was a plot or unintended consequence, jobs offshoring wrecked the industrial and manufacturing unions and destroyed the Democrats’ independent financial base.


The two-party system that had maintained a reasonable balance was transformed into a one-party system in which both parties were dependent on the same monied interests and thus answered to the same masters.

The consequence was the demise of the middle class and rise of the One Percent. Today the US has the most unequally distributed income and wealth of all developed economies and one of the worst in the entire world. Few Americans other than the One Percent have a stake in the American economic and political system.




The imbalance in the distribution of income and wealth cannot be corrected through the tax system. The imbalance is due largely to the loss of the jobs that provided the economic basis for the middle class. Correction requires a retreat from globalism and the return to a largely self-sufficient economy, which the US economy was during its glory decades. Globalism is a scheme for impoverishing First World labor and taking power and influence from the hands of the many and putting them in the hands of the few. The champions of globalism are the champions of America’s destruction.

Today the Republicans are demolishing the public sector unions. These jobs can’t be outsourced, but public schools can be replaced with charter schools, prisons can be privatized, and many public services can be contracted out to private businesses.


Homeless Seniors, Veterans eating dog food to survive
Public sector unions never had as strong a case for their existence as manufacturing and industrial unions. Moreover, strikes by firemen, police forces, school teachers, and trash collectors undermined public support for public sector unions as did many unpleasant experiences with the licensing bureaucracies of state and local government departments. 

Nevertheless, public sector unions could serve as a check on ambitious executive and legislative power.


Whether one has a favorable or unfavorable opinion of unions, their demise is also the demise of countervailing power. A system in which there is no countervailing power is a tyranny in which power is unconstrained and unaccountable.

The American people have been subdued and turned into a flock of sheep. Will they ever rise again?

"Record Number Of Americans In Extreme Poverty" : U.S. Economist

Americans have only themselves to blame; they could have stopped this bullshit a decade ago however beer and circus took precedence as cowardice, illiteracy, complacency and ignorance won out over action

Poverty and unemployment is worsening in America, with a “record number” of US households in extreme poverty and depending on government benefits to survive, an American economist tells Press TV.


“The United States has problems with unemployment and has problems with poverty and a record number of people meeting the standard of extreme poverty,” said Mark Thornton, senior fellow with the Ludwig von Mises Institute in Alabama and a research fellow with the Independent Institute in California.

“Extreme poverty in the United States is now over 4 percent, that means they have less than $2 cash per person, per day,” Thornton said in a phone interview on Monday. “We also have over 20 percent of Americans on food stamps with a record number of households receiving food stamps and other government welfare benefits,” the economist stated. “So the direction of change in the United States has been negative with respect to poverty over the last several years and that doesn’t seem to be turning around anytime soon.”




“We have just as much people in poverty today in the United States as we did 50 years ago with nearly one third of the US population qualifying at below the poverty level at any one point during the year, so the conditions for poor Americans have gotten worse and there’s very little light at the end of the tunnel with respect to Americans getting jobs and getting out of poverty.”




A study published last year by two US economists showed slightly more than one in every 25 American households with children is surviving on less than $2 per day of income from all sources. The findings were originally published in June 2013 by Social Science Review, but have not been reported in the mainstream media.


Titled, “Rising Extreme Poverty in the United States and the Response of Federal Means-Tested Transfer Programs,” the researchers reported that there has been “an increase in the prevalence of extreme poverty among US households with children between 1996 and 2011.”


Furthermore, the study said, “The prevalence of extreme poverty has risen sharply since 1996, particularly among those most impacted by the 1996 welfare reform,” which was signed into law by President Bill Clinton and which embodied numerous elements of President Ronald Reagan’s views on poverty.
