Can Evil Be Defeated?

Evil abides in the Obama White House, Congress, CIA, NSA, DHS, TSA, ATF and will only be rooted out and destroyed by the direct action of The People  

STRATEGIC CULTURE FOUNDATION
By Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
04/03/2015

John W. Whitehead is a constitutional attorney. As head of the Rutherford Institute he is actively involved in defending our civil liberties. Being actively involved in legal cases, he experiences first hand the transformation of law from a shield of the American people into a weapon in the hands of the government.


American civil liberty was seriously eroded prior to 9/11 and the rise of the police / warfare state, a story I tell in How America Was Lost. Lawrence Stratton and I documented the loss of law as a shield of the American people in our book, The Tyranny of Good Intentions (2000, 2008). Whitehead in his book, A Government of Wolves (2013) and in his just released Battlefield America (2015) shows how quickly and thoroughly the police state has taken root. 


We live in an electronic concentration camp. We are addicted to images on screens that disinform and propagandize us to accept and even welcome the police state activities that have destroyed our autonomy, privacy, and independence. 

I write many columns on this subject. The advantage of a book is that it all comes together under one cover, and that is what Whitehead has done in Battlefield America. 

"The outlook for civil liberties grows bleaker by the day, from the government’s embrace of indefinite detention for US citizens and armed surveillance drones flying overhead to warrantless surveillance of phone, email and Internet communications, and prosecutions of government whistle-blowers. The homeland is ruled by a police-industrial complex, an extension of the American military empire. Everything that our founding fathers warned against is now the new norm. The government has trained its sights on the American people. We have become the enemy. All the while, the American people remain largely oblivious."


Whitehead gives it to us straight. We are continually abused in the name of protecting us. Just ordinary Americans are subject to far worst abuse from government than they ever could be from criminals and terrorists, both of which are bogymen used to justify the government’s terrorism of the citizenry. 

Four-year old children are handcuffed by police. Ninety-five year old citizens with walkers are body-slammed with their neck broken by police. 


War veterans without legs and wheelchair bound are shot and murdered by police. 

The police always justify their abuse and criminal acts by claiming they felt threatened. 


U.S. Marine Scott Olsen shot by coward Alameda County pigs
What kind of heavily armed police, usually together in gangs, is threatened by a four-year old, a 95-year old, a double amputee? The fact that police get away with this brutality shows their total lack of humanity and the total transformation of the purpose of police. Today a paranoid police protect not the public but the police state and themselves from the public. We pay them to abuse and murder us.


On September 6, 7, and 8, 2014, the Washington Post reported that state and local police had become bandits, as in Mexico, who stop drivers in order to rob them. In "Stop and Seize," the Washington Post reported that "aggressive police take hundreds of millions of dollars from motorists not charged with crimes:" http://www.washingtonpost.com/sf/investigative/2014/09/06/stop-and-seize/


Marine Corps Sergeant Ed Mayer is arrested by coward Alameda County pigs during union protest in San Francisco; pigs now targeting Marines, Veterans as possible leadership of future civil unrest, protests

There are now training courses in which police are trained in the art of highway robbery. September 11, 2001, was used to create an industry that trains police in the aggressive techniques of highway interdiction.


Coward pigs message for Americans
It is now routine for a traffic stop, whether justified or not, to result in the confiscation of your cash, other possessions, and your car itself. You can be robbed by police on the basis of their assumptions without being ticketed or charged with a crime

Whitehead reports that in fiscal year 2012 the federal government alone seized $4.2 billion in assets despite the fact that in 80 percent of the cases no charge was issued.


Did you know that the school security industry is a $4.9 billion annual business that instills in youth acceptance of tyranny and punishments for infractions that are simply the normal behavior of youth?

Did you know that in 2006 a Halliburton subsidiary, Dick Cheney’s firm, was awarded a $385 million federal contract to build concentration camps in the US?


American kids being dumbed-down, doped-up,
educationally lobotomised by the system
Did you know that Republicans have privatized the prison system and turned it into a $70 billion per year industry that demands ever more incarceration of citizens in order to drive profits. 

Consequently, 2.7 million American children now have at least one parent in prison, often on charges that would not constitute crimes in a civilized country.

US prison labor is now the cheapest form of labor available with prisoners paid between 93 cents and $4.73 per day. 




Prisoners make office furniture, work in call centers, fabricate body armor, take hotel reservations, work in slaughterhouses, manufacture textiles, shoes, and clothing, process agricultural products like milk and beef, package Starbucks coffee, shrink wrap software for Microsoft, sew lingerie for Victoria’s Secret, produce the military’s helmets, shirts, pants, tents, bags, canteens, and a variety of other equipment, make circuit boards for IBM, Texas Instruments and Dell. Sew McDonald’s uniforms, and perform labor services for Boeing, Motorola, Compaq, Revlon and Kmart. 


Even the "mainstream" presstitute media has reported the US military drills in South Florida where military teams working with local police practiced rounding up American citizens for detention. 

The media has also reported the upcoming military occupations in Texas and Utah. There are protests but not on the level that a people conscious of the threat to their liberty would mount.


It seems clear that these are federal troops practicing control of the population which is being stripped of the constitutional right to hold government accountable. 




The pointless lockdown of Boston and its suburbs and the gratuitous house to house searches, a martial law exercise clearly prepared prior to the Boston Marathon Bombing, used fear created by the bombing, possibly a false flag operation, to teach the population compliance with, and acceptance of, martial law. 

The insouciant American population went along with it. If someone points out how they were manipulated, the fools scream "conspiracy theorist."



The official explanation of the military exercises practicing population control in South Florida, Texas and Utah is that the military is practicing for overseas actions. 

Why then are local police involved? More likely we are witnessing drills described in the US Army’s 2010 publication, "Internment and Resettlement Operations." 




It is now routine for police to amuse themselves by carrying out strip searches and vaginal searches of women. 

Police go out of their way to provoke resistance so that they can beat, taser, and murder.




If they can’t provoke it, they beat, taser, and murder anyway and claim their victim resisted arrest or threatened them. Have you noticed how the police find everyone threatening? 

Whitehead shows that the educational system, entertainment, and television serve to indoctrinate and teach compliance. Television can do more than form public opinion. 


It is used to alter the worldview of the population. Our cars, household appliances, and smart homes are becoming devices designed to spy on us and report noncompliance. A society is being created in which there can be no autonomy and no freedom. 

The technology that permits the electronic concentration camp is produced by thoughtless people who have no concern for liberty. How, Whitehead asks, do we maintain our humanity in the face of technologies designed to dehumanize us?


America now has preemptive prosecution. Whitehead reports that 95 percent of those convicted of terrorism between 2001 and 2010 were prosecuted not for deeds, but for beliefs, ideology, or religious affiliations.

The two most engaging chapters in Battleground America are "The Matrix" and "The Posthuman Era," together a mere 17 pages. The fusion of machines with humans to which trans-humanists are committed will destroy human sensibility, memory, and morality, and probably humans themselves. 


Corporate America is in it for the money. 

Whitehead tells us: "With every smartphone we buy, every GPS device we install, and every Twitter, Facebook, and Google account we open, we’re helping Corporate America build a dossier for its government counterparts on who we know, what we think, how we spend our money, and how we spend our time." 


Whitehead quotes Bill Joy, a cofounder of Sun Microsystems: "I think it is no exaggeration to say we are on the cusp of the further perfection of evil."

Jim Edwards says, "we humans are now data bits."

In the penultimate chapter, Whitehead tells us what we can do, a question that I am forever asked by readers. Whitehead says that armed revolt is not an option. He believes that the tens of millions, perhaps 100 million, Americans who have pistols, rifles, and shotguns are not only unorganized, but outgunned. The 21stcentury has been used to militarize state and local police forces and to brutalize their attitude toward the American public. Even police in small towns now have helicopters, armored personnel carriers, tanks, machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades, drones, night vision, heat sensors, sensors that can see through the walls of houses and into cars. 



If this is not enough, in comes the National Guard or federal troops, Army Rangers, Navy Seals. Or simply the release of germs. Washington can deal with its citizens the same way it dealt with the indigenous peoples we call Indians. Washington has retained in its hands live smallpox, a deadly killer, and there now have been several generations of Americans who have not had smallpox vaccination, because the disease was eliminated by vaccination. All the government has to do is to release smallpox on resistant populations, and, of course, the government has numerous other such means.

How did it come to this?


Government now legislating deviancy,
homosexuality as the "new norm" in U.S.
to demoralise Americans and bring them
down to lowest common denominator
In my opinion, as I so often write, Americans are distracted by sex, entertainment, the difficulty of providing for themselves and for families. They are locked into the disinformation that sustains the American Matrix, blinded by their patriotism and the 4th of July speeches and by their indoctrination that Americans are "exceptional and indispensable." And, of course, by their ignorance and arrogance. Americans simply have no clue. 

The purpose of the evil that masquerades as a government in Washington is to prevent those few Americans who do have a clue from informing the rest of the population. Whistleblowers are arrested and falsely prosecuted and imprisoned. Journalists have been intimidated into silence.


Now, to Whitehead’s answer to what can we do. He says that we can mount "militant nonviolent resistance." This worked for Christians in the decomposing Roman Empire.

It worked for Mahatma Gandhi in India against the British colonialists. It was working for Martin Luther King in America before he was assassinated, most likely by the FBI. 




Whitehead says that the mass of the citizenry cannot be assassinated. If citizens simply stop cooperating by listening to the lies on TV, by purchasing the devices used to control them, by amusing themselves in front of propaganda screens, by learning again how to think, how to be human, how to be moral, the American police state can be defeated.

It worked in the past, and possibly it can work again. If not, Washington will remain the home of Sauron, a threat to every American citizen and to the entire world.

Obama's Dirty War On Yemen

At the cost of our military, economy and world standing Obama continues attempt to spark WWIII in Middle East, Ukraine  

THE PEOPLES VOICE.ORG
By Stephen Lendman

Candidate Obama was elected promising peace. On October 28, 2007, he said: "I will promise you this, that if we have not gotten our troops out of Afghanistan by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do."


"I will get our troops home. We will bring an end to this war. You can take that to the bank."

Instead he escalated. America's war on Afghanistan continues. Permanent occupation is planned.

Obama arguably is America's most belligerent president ever. 

He exceeds the worst of his predecessors.


Multiple direct and proxy wars continue raging nonstop throughout his tenure - against Afghanistan, parts of Pakistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, Ukraine, Somalia, partnered with Israel against Palestine and now Yemen.

He wants congressional authorization for unlimited wars - permanent ones on humanity.




So he can reign more death and destruction on planet earth. So he can turn more parts of it to rubble.

He's responsible for appalling levels of human suffering from wars, related violence, preventable diseases, starvation, and overall deprivation.


He presides over a homeland police state apparatus. He risks war with Russia. He threatens world peace. He invents threats to justify the unjustifiable. Months of preparation preceded his war on Yemen. Detailed planning went into choosing targets now terror-bombed.


Saudis and complicit Gulf states are convenient US proxies. Israel is involved. Make no mistake. Yemen is Obama's war.


Before he's done, he may rape the country like Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Donbass.

He may destroy it entirely. He'll likely slaughter many thousands. Civilians are considered fair game.

Pentagon direct or proxy terror-bombing murders them in cold blood.

US-dominated NATO calls killing noncombatant men, women and children "precision strikes on legitimate military targets."


The vast majority of deaths and injuries in all US direct and proxy wars are noncombatant civilians.

Drone attacks are indiscriminate acts of state terror. 




Civilian neighborhoods, shopping areas, rescue parties, funerals and weddings are targeted.

Extrajudicial mass murder is official US policy - state terror by any standard.


War on Yemen continued overnight. Saudi-led terror bombing targeted an Al-Marzi district refugee camp.

Dozens of noncombatant men, women and children were murdered in cold blood.

A hospital south of Sanaa was attacked. Numerous casualties followed. Precise numbers weren't reported.

A Sanaa power plant was destroyed. Reuters reported it "knocked out by air strikes."


On March 31, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marziheh Afkham categorically denied accusations about Iran sending weapons to Houthis.

She called reports circulating "complete fabrications, sheer lies." Iran sent humanitarian aid only - food, medicines and medical equipment provided by the Iranian Red Crescent.

Iranian naval commander Rear Admiral Habibollah Sayyari denied reports of an Iranian flotilla allegedly forced to retreat from the Bab Al-Mandab strait near the port of Aden.


He said it's completing its mission to provide security for shipping routes in full compliance with international regulations.

Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Consular, Parliamentary and Expatriates Affairs Hassan Qashqavi urged the International Red Crescent and other human rights groups to send beleaguered Yemenis vitally needed humanitarian aid. He denounced irresponsible accusations about Iranian intervention in Yemeni affairs - what he called "the project of Iranophobia."


Reports indicate Saudi and Egyptian-led naval forces blockaded Yemeni ports. Aggressor warships pounded coastal areas.

AP said overnight strikes were the most intense so far. A Sanaa resident said they felt "like an earthquake."

"Never in my life have I heard such explosions or heard such raids," he explained.

At least nine of Yemen's 21 provinces were attacked. Maybe they'll all be brutally targeted in coming days and weeks.


Iran condemned Obama's proxy war on Yemen. Earlier, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei urged Shiite/Sunni unity against divisive plots hatched by enemies of Islam."

"Shiites and Sunnis shouldn’t help the enemy by desecrating their sanctities and provoking one another’s sentiments," he said.


Western powers always sought to drive a wedge between Shiites and Sunnis, he explained - to deflect attention from the real enemy.

"If anyone fuels the fire in this regard, he or she will definitely be helping sinister America and Britain which are the creators of the ISIL and Al-Qaeda," he explained.

State terror is official US policy. Obama is systematically destroying Yemen - the same way he continues ravaging other regional countries.


Ground invasion looms. Expect bloodbath conditions to follow.

Expect longterm conflict without resolution. Expect another regional country ravaged and destroyed.

Perhaps Obama's war eliminates any chance for meaningful agreement on Iran's nuclear program and ending sanctions.

For sure it's another example of America's dark side.

High Political Stakes For Clinton On Iran Nuclear Agreement - What Happened To Benghazi Hearings?

MSM continues to ignore Clinton refusal to testify and continued obstruction of Benghazi hearings; attempts to paint her as still a viable candidate when in actuality she is headed to PRISON and had absolutely nothing to do with Iran negotiations

WASHINGTON (AP) — 

Hillary Rodham Clinton can claim a piece of the victory if the U.S. and other world powers ultimately complete a final nuclear deal with Iran.


Her statement after Thursday's tentative agreement suggests the soon-to-be Democratic candidate for president knows those are her stakes. She will own a piece of the failure if the negotiations collapse or produce a weak deal.

She called the framework "an important step," while cautioning that "the devil is always in the details. The onus is on Iran and the bar must be set high," said Clinton, who helped lay the groundwork for the diplomacy with Iran as President Barack Obama's first secretary of state. 


"There is much to do and much more to say in the months ahead, but for now diplomacy deserves a chance to succeed."

hearings
The issue will figure prominently in the foreign policy debate of the 2016 presidential campaign. Nearly all the expected Republican candidates said the outline agreement was dangerous to U.S. interests.

"This attempt to spin diplomatic failure as a success is just the latest example of this administration's farcical approach to Iran," said Florida Sen. Marco Rubio. He is likely to make foreign policy a centerpiece of his candidacy.

But Clinton occupies a unique space on the nuclear issue because of her role in Obama's Cabinet. 


She sent a close adviser, Jake Sullivan, to participate in the secret talks with Iran that led to the start of the international negotiations over the country's nuclear ambitions.

Clinton is also navigating delicate ties with Israel and the American Jewish community, an influential group of voters and donors. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a fierce critic of the Obama administration's outreach to Iran, described the framework deal as a threat to "the very survival" of his nation.


AP, MSM shills continue to hallucinate Clinton a viable candidate while attempting at the same time to paint her as having something to do with Iran negotiations - both are fantasy

"I don't know how you can maneuver all aspects of this politically," said Ray Takeyh, a senior fellow for Middle Eastern studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. "You can be supportive and skeptical. I suspect that's the direction."


MSM has been a propaganda tool of the Obama
administration since the beginning
The tentative agreement announced Thursday by the U.S. and its negotiating partners — Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia — is aimed at keeping Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. 

Negotiators have until June 30 to settle the technical details.

The deal would remove economic penalties against Iran once the U.N. nuclear agency verifies Tehran's compliance.



At times, Clinton has tried to play up her connection to the historic diplomacy. 

The U.S. and Iran severed diplomatic relations in 1979 after the Islamic revolution and the storming of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, where 52 Americans were held hostage for more than a year.




Clinton wrote in her memoir of how she set the negotiations in motion by facilitating back-channel discussions with Iran through the sultan of Oman, who suggested the talks after he helped free an American hiker held by Iran. 

Clinton tapped Sullivan to establish contact with the Iranians in 2012, an important step in the path to Thursday's preliminary agreement.




Sullivan has closely consulted with Clinton on policy as she prepares to announce her presidential campaign this month.

Yet Clinton also expressed doubt as the talks dragged on and she neared a return to politics.




Last year, Clinton told an American Jewish organization that while Obama had given 50-50 odds of an agreement, she was "skeptical the Iranians will follow through and deliver." She said she had "seen many false hopes dashed through the years."

Brian Katulis, a senior fellow at the left-leaning Center for American Progress who focuses on national security policy in the Middle East and South Asia, said if a full deal is reached by the summer, Clinton would be "part of something historic" because of her initial role.


Obama, Clinton, State Department, CIA responsible for consulate deaths and must be held accountable

If it failed, he predicted she still would be "in a strong position at the center of the debate, because Iran would be widely viewed as the spoiler."

With public polling showing a majority of Americans favor a diplomatic resolution to Iran's nuclear ambitions, Katulis said, "any effort by Republicans to criticize Clinton's support for diplomacy might ultimately push them to the margins of today's national security debate and away from the center." 




Clinton appears set to go on offense against the Republicans in the race on Iran. 

After dozens of Republican senators sent a letter to Iran's leaders warning that Congress could upend a deal, Clinton said the lawmakers were "out of step with the best traditions of American leadership."




"Either these senators were trying to be helpful to the Iranians or harmful to the commander in chief in the midst of high-stakes international diplomacy," she said. "Either answer does discredit" to the letter-signers.
