Wakey, Wakey, America. Judge Napolitano gave a very easy to understand explanation today of the trick the ‘big government‘ party just played on the American public with the debt deal and why events such as the credit downgrade and market fluctuations are occurring. This information is intended for those newly awakened Americans who are just starting to realize that our debt is unsustainable and need to understand why. Regular Monster readers can feel free to send this viral, and please make sure to let them know that our debt is our greatest national security threat.
I felt that this particular show was important because Glenn covers the dog-and-pony show (or as he describes – cakes and circuses) that the media has us watching instead of paying attention to what is really important. Monster readers already are so far ahead of the curve, we just be waitin’ for everybody else to catch up, and prepping while we wait…
On a completely different but related note, I am calling Glenn out as a total hypocrite for pointing out just how much of a national security risk Anthony Weiner was due to possible blackmail, and then not uttering a single syllable when it comes to Barack Obama/Barry Soetoro/Harrison J. Bounel(?) being an un-Constitutional resident of the White House and having a Social Security number originally issued to a dead Connecticut resident (among other sketchy items). What’s up with that Glenn? What about the other seven SSNs that the PI found? Didn’t you know that Barry’s very first executive order was to seal all his records from requests from previous and future presidents? What is he hiding? How dare you use the national security argument in regards to a congressman and not tell your viewers about the ‘rest of the un-Constitutional pResident story’. (more…)
A reader sent me an article this morning which I thought would be a useful piece for my readers to incorporate into the puzzle. It was written by Jeff Nyquist of the Strategic Crisis Center which is a non-profit that he founded to help educate Americans on national security issues; mainly Russia and China. As you watch the video, keep in the mind that Russia and China recently reached an agreement to trade each others currencies without converting to the US dollar as the middle man. I ask my readers to watch the video and read the article in their entirety.

According to some experts the U.S. economy is one “event” away from a catastrophic sequence. My own variation on this sequence goes something like this: first, the dollar collapses; second, the government’s response prevents any chance for recovery; third, political unrest and destabilization begins; last, the defensive function of the state fails as external and internal enemies take advantage of the country’s weakness. This sequence would likely be nonsense if it were only my sequence. Unfortunately, it is a sequence dreamt up by Soviet strategists as far back as the 1960s. It was the entire basis of the Soviet strategic blueprint of half a century ago. The writings of at least two Soviet Bloc defectors suggest that this same blueprint dictated the controlled “collapse” of Communism in Eastern Europe from 1989-91. This would differ from the uncontrolled collapse of capitalism that Soviet strategists also anticipated.
I’ve taken a lot of heat from the right when I start bashing the Patriot Act for being the single most dangerous Act to be passed by the cowardly congress when it comes to the inherent infringement on privacy, liberty, and the amount of control the government now has over everything you do. Every time you see a camera at an intersection recording your face, your plate, and your car; think Patriot Act and the NWO globalists tracking, what they believe is, their property.
The argument is that we have to catch the terrorists at any cost, and that our national security agencies have to do whatever they deem necessary to accomplish that mission. Poppycock! The slowly awakening but too trusting sheeples are going to have to make a choice soon between standing tall or kneeling as the shackles are put on.
If you are a blogger, citizen journalist, or a tea party patriot; pay attention because the Climate of Fear just got a bit thicker.
When the Conservative Examiner presented proof in a 7-part series that the Obama government is engaging in covert activities to rob citizens of their liberties, naysayers dismissed the information as ‘inconclusive,’ despite the reliability of the unnamed sources for that information.
However, ABC News interviewed a whistleblower who exposes a massive government intrusion into the privacy of all citizens by reading their emails and Instant Messages, listening to their phone calls, monitoring their movements on the Internet, and tracking the ‘Patriot movement’ as a ‘violent threat’ to national security, although no one in the Patriot movement has engaged in such violence.
Not only that, but the government is working with a corporation–AT&T–in order to accomplish this privacy violation:
Note that this secret program was exposed in 2008, while George W. Bush was President.
Thus, we know for a fact that the government has been doing exactly what was claimed in the Conservative Examiner series on Obama’s 4th Reich. Only the faces have changed. The program is the same and has in fact been kicked up into high gear under the Obama Administration.
In fact, ‘People for Freedom‘ reports that the Pentagon’s Cyber Command is currently preparing to wage war against American citizens who insist on liberty and the adherence to the U.S. Constitution. :
Early last week the Air Force assigned approximately 30,000 “digital troops” to “the front lines of cyber warfare,” a number that represents a third of the troops in Afghanistan. “The transformation is part of the service’s larger emphasis on cyberspace operations and merging most computer system operations and network warfare functions under Space Command’s 24th Air Force, based at Lackland Air Force Base, Texas,” reported the Air Force Times on May 19.
But the bombshell that was revealed in this latest expose of secret government operations directly impacts bloggers and citizen journalists who are not ‘authorized’ by government to report their propaganda:
According to investigative reporter Wayne Madsen, at least some members of the NSA want to deal with pesky bloggers in a more direct and deadly fashion. In August of 2008, Madsen reported that an executive level NSA staff person was on record saying that significant sentiment exists within the NSA to kill troublesome bloggers and journalists.
Added to this disturbing information is the fact that at West Point last week Barack Obama called for a ‘new international order:
These various factors add up to one big concerted attack on average American citizens by the present government and its enablers in the mega-corporate world.
The jackboot is on our throats.
Today’s AYFKM? Award goes to whatever intelligence moronic agency or agencies that compiles the no-fly list. This definitely falls under the category of keeping on eye on Americans vs. catching terrorists. Hasn’t the Patriot Act that was passed without being read because of a rather convenient anthrax attack a freakin’ God-send? Don’t you feel safer?
In the category of “I can’t believe I’m asking these questions”, how long does it take to get a baby’s name off the no fly-list, and why is it necessary to frisk an eight year old boy? This is not about stupidity, this is about big brother. I hope that everybody continues to pay attention to what this 8 year old boy scout is doing, and y’all stop worrying about those jihadist training camps in New York state.
An eight-year-old boy scout has been repeatedly frisked at airports in America because he has the same name as a person on a security watch list.
Michael Winston Hicks, from New Jersey, was first singled out as a baby when his mother tried to get him on a flight in Florida. She was told by airline officials that her son’s name “was on the list”.
As a two-year-old the boy, who is known as Mikey, was patted down by security officers at Newark Airport, which reduced him to tears.
His name appears to be among 13,500 on the “selectee” list, which sets off a high level of security screening, after a man called Michael Hicks at some point triggered suspicion.
It is not on the much smaller no-fly list which has about 2,500 names, mostly of non-US citizens.
His mother, Najlah Feanny Hicks, a photojournalist, told the New York Times that Mikey was badly shaken returning from their recent holiday to the Bahamas when he was aggressively frisked re-entering the US.
“A terrorist can blow his underwear up and they don’t catch him,” she told the newspaper. “But my eight-year-old can’t walk through security without being frisked.
“I understand the need for security but this is ridiculous.”
Watching the Democratic Party’s Rules and Bylaws Committee meeting on May 31, 2008 shocked me. Being a “so-called domestic terrorist” according to Janet Napolitano’s Homeland Security Report shocked me. Being called racist, way back when, shocked me. Being asked to “flag” my neighbors to the White House shocked me. Watching a guy that has paid over $2 million dollars in attorney’s fees to fight court cases to reveal his documents shocked me. Watching the Supreme Court have a closed door meeting with Obama and Biden before his inauguration shocked me. Watching him apologize to the world for us shocked me.
Want me to go on?
I’m done being shocked. Bring it.
WASHINGTON — White House national security adviser James Jones says Americans will feel “a certain shock” when they read an account being released Thursday of the missed clues that could have prevented the alleged Christmas Day bomber from ever boarding the plane.
President Obama “is legitimately and correctly alarmed that things that were available, bits of information that were available, patterns of behavior that were available, were not acted on,” Jones said in an interview Wednesday with USA TODAY.
“That’s two strikes,” Obama’s top White House aide on defense and foreign policy issues said, referring to the foiled bombing of the Detroit-bound airliner and the shooting rampage at Fort Hood, Texas, in November. In that case, too, officials failed to act when red flags were raised about an Army psychiatrist, Maj. Nidal Hasan. He has been charged with killing 13 people.
Jones said Obama “certainly doesn’t want that third strike, and neither does anybody else.”
The White House plans to release an unclassified report Thursday on what went wrong in the incident involving a 23-year-old Nigerian man who tried to blow up a Northwest Airlines flight.
National Security with this crew is a joke, and we all know it.
MR. GREGORY: Why isn’t he be treat–being treated as an enemy combatant instead of a criminal?
MR. BRENNAN: Well, because, first of all, we’re a country of laws, and what we’re going to do is to make sure that we treat each individual case appropriately. In the past Richard Reid, the former shoe bomber; Zacarias Moussaoui; Jose Padilla; Iyman Faris; all of them were charged in criminal court, were sentenced some in–in some cases to life imprisonment. We have these tools available, whether it’s an enemy combatant avenue or to charge them criminally. We look at the cases, and in this case we decided it was best, in fact, to charge him criminally.
MR. GREGORY: Would there be additional intelligence that could be gleaned by making him an enemy combatant? And do you believe that whatever you’re learning from him, was the Christmas Day plot part of something larger from al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula?
MR. BRENNAN: Well, first of all, we have different ways of obtaining information from individuals according to that criminal process. A lot of people, as they understand what they’re facing and their lawyers recognize that there is advantage to talking to us in terms of plea agreements, we’re going to pursue that. So–and we are continuing to look at ways that we can extract that information from him. (emphasis mine)
