27AUG2013: Mayday! CIA Documents Show the U.S. Helped Saddam Hussein Use Chemical Weapons


Mayday .. Lies leading to perpetual war..

(libertyblitzkrieg) – But the CIA documents, which sat almost entirely unnoticed in a trove of declassified material at the National Archives in College Park, Md., combined with exclusive interviews with former intelligence officials, reveal new details about the depth of the United States’ knowledge of how and when Iraq employed the deadly agents. They show that senior U.S. officials were being regularly informed about the scale of the nerve gas attacks. They are tantamount to an official American admission of complicity in some of the most gruesome chemical weapons attacks ever launched.

 From Foreign Policy’s excellent article: CIA Files Prove America Helped Saddam as He Gassed Iran

Remember all of the propaganda ahead of the USA’s “democracy unleashing” invasion of Iraq in 2003. It went something like this: “We have evidence that Saddam Hussein has stockpiles of weapons of mass destruction, and even worse he has a histroy of using them, even against his own people!”

Well unsurprisingly, Mr. Hussein had a little help from his friends. The United States of America. Let’s bear this in mind as our Noble Peace Prize winning President attempts to involve us in another unconstitutional war based on the fact that chemical weapons have been used.

Let’s be adults here and recognize that every single thing we have been told about Syria has been a lie. Let’s also admit that the “rebels” that we are allies with have al-Qaeda elements to them, and that Saddam Hussein was a close ally in the 1980′s before we decided he was the most evil dictator on the planet 20 years later for engaging in chemical attacks we were actually a party to.

Please spread this far and wide, since I believe we can avoid this useless war if enough people get the joke. From Foreign Policy:

The U.S. government may be considering military action in response to chemical strikes near Damascus. But a generation ago, America’s military and intelligence communities knew about and did nothing to stop a series of nerve gas attacks far more devastating than anything Syria has seen, Foreign Policy has learned.

Next you’re going to tell me Santa Claus isn’t real.

The Iraqis used mustard gas and sarin prior to four major offensives in early 1988 that relied on U.S. satellite imagery, maps, and other intelligence.These attacks helped to tilt the war in Iraq’s favor and bring Iran to the negotiating table, and they ensured that the Reagan administration’s long-standing policy of securing an Iraqi victory would succeed. But they were also the last in a series of chemical strikes stretching back several years that the Reagan administration knew about and didn’t disclose.

U.S. officials have long denied acquiescing to Iraqi chemical attacks, insisting that Hussein’s government never announced he was going to use the weapons. But retired Air Force Col. Rick Francona, who was a military attaché in Baghdad during the 1988 strikes, paints a different picture.

“The Iraqis never told us that they intended to use nerve gas. They didn’t have to. We already knew,” he told Foreign Policy.

According to recently declassified CIA documents and interviews with former intelligence officials like Francona, the U.S. had firm evidence of Iraqi chemical attacks beginning in 1983. At the time, Iran was publicly alleging that illegal chemical attacks were carried out on its forces, and was building a case to present to the United Nations. But it lacked the evidence implicating Iraq, much of which was contained in top secret reports and memoranda sent to the most senior intelligence officials in the U.S. government. The CIA declined to comment for this story.

War is Peace. Freedom is Slavery. Ignorance is Strength and Not Commenting is Transparency.

In contrast to today’s wrenching debate over whether the United States should intervene to stop alleged chemical weapons attacks by the Syrian government, the United States applied a cold calculus three decades ago to Hussein’s widespread use of chemical weapons against his enemies and his own people. The Reagan administration decided that it was better to let the attacks continue if they might turn the tide of the war. And even if they were discovered, the CIA wagered that international outrage and condemnation would be muted.

But the CIA documents, which sat almost entirely unnoticed in a trove of declassified material at the National Archives in College Park, Md., combined with exclusive interviews with former intelligence officials, reveal new details about the depth of the United States’ knowledge of how and when Iraq employed the deadly agents. They show that senior U.S. officials were being regularly informed about the scale of the nerve gas attacks. They are tantamount to an official American admission of complicity in some of the most gruesome chemical weapons attacks ever launched.

Top CIA officials, including the Director of Central Intelligence William J. Casey, a close friend of President Ronald Reagan, were told about the location of Iraqi chemical weapons assembly plants; that Iraq was desperately trying to make enough mustard agent to keep up with frontline demand from its forces; that Iraq was about to buy equipment from Italy to help speed up production of chemical-packed artillery rounds and bombs; and that Iraq could also use nerve agents on Iranian troops and possibly civilians.

The declassified CIA documents show that Casey and other top officials were repeatedly informed about Iraq’s chemical attacks and its plans for launching more. “If the Iraqis produce or acquire large new supplies of mustard agent, they almost certainly would use it against Iranian troops and towns near the border,” the CIA said in a top secret document.

But it was the express policy of Reagan to ensure an Iraqi victory in the war, whatever the cost.

By 1988, U.S. intelligence was flowing freely to Hussein’s military. That March, Iraq launched a nerve gas attack on the Kurdish village of Halabja in northern Iraq.

26JUL2013 – Shocking ‘Extermination’ Fantasies By the People Running America’s Empire on Full Display at Aspen Summit


(Alternet) – Security Forum participants expressed total confidence in American empire, but could not contain their panic at the mention of Snowden.
Seated on a stool before an audience packed with spooks, lawmakers, lawyers and mercenaries, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer introduced recently retired CENTCOM chief General James Mattis. “I’ve worked with him and I’ve worked with his predecessors,” Blitzer said of Mattis. “I know how hard it is to run an operation like this.”
Reminding the crowd that CENTCOM is “really, really important,” Blitzer urged them to celebrate Mattis: “Let’s give the general a round of applause.”

Following the gales of cheering that resounded from the room, Mattis, the gruff 40-year Marine veteran who once volunteered his opinion that “it’s fun to shoot some people,” outlined the challenge ahead. The “war on terror” that began on 9/11 has no discernable end, he said, likening it to the “the constant skirmishing between [the US cavalry] and the Indians” during the genocidal Indian Wars of the 19th century.

“The skirmishing will go on likely for a generation,” Mattis declared.

Mattis’ remarks, made beside a cable news personality who acted more like a sidekick than a journalist, set the tone for the entire 2013 Aspen Security Forum this July. A project of the Aspen Institute, the Security Forum brought together the key figures behind America’s vast national security state, from military chieftains like Mattis to embattled National Security Agency Chief General Keith Alexander to top FBI and CIA officials, along with the bookish functionaries attempting to establish legal groundwork for expanding the war on terror.

Partisan lines and ideological disagreements faded away inside the darkened conference hall, as a parade of American securitocrats from administrations both past and present appeared on stage to defend endless global warfare and total information awareness while uniting in a single voice of condemnation against a single whistleblower bunkered inside the waiting room of Moscow International Airport: Edward Snowden.

With perhaps one notable exception, none of the high-flying reporters junketed to Aspen to act as interlocutors seemed terribly interested in interrogating the logic of the war on terror. The spectacle was a perfect window into the world of access journalism, with media professionals brown-nosing national security elites committed to secrecy and surveillance, avoiding overly adversarial questions but making sure to ask the requisite question about how much Snowden has caused terrorists to change their behavior.

Jeff Harris, the communications director for the Aspen Institute, did not respond to questions I submitted about whether the journalists who participated in the Security Forum accepted fees. (It is likely that all relied on Aspen to at least cover lodging and travel costs). CNN sponsored the forum through a special new website called CNN Security Clearance, promoting the event through Twitter and specially commissioned op-eds from participating national security figures like former CIA director John McLaughlin.

Another forum sponsor was Academi, the private mercenary corporation formerly known as Blackwater. In fact, Academi is Blackwater’s third incarnation (it was first renamed “Xe”) since revelations of widespread human rights abuses and possible war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan threw the mercenary firm into full damage control mode. The Aspen Institute did not respond to my questions about whether accepting sponsorship from such an unsavory entity fit within its ethical guidelines.

‘Exterminating People’

John Ashcroft, the former Attorney General who prosecuted the war on terror under the administration of George W. Bush, appeared at Aspen as a board member of Academi. Responding to a question about U.S. over-reliance on the “kinetic” approach of drone strikes and special forces, Ashcroft reminded the audience that the U.S. also likes to torture terror suspects, not just “exterminate” them.

“It’s not true that we have relied solely on the kinetic option,” Ashcroft insisted. “We wouldn’t have so many detainees if we’d relied on the ability to exterminate people…We’ve had a blended and nuanced approach and for the guy who’s on the other end of a Hellfire missile he doesn’t see that as a nuance.”

Hearty laughs erupted from the crowd and fellow panelists. With a broad smile on her face, moderator Catherine Herridge of Fox News joked to Ashcroft, “You have a way with words.”

But Ashcroft was not done. He proceeded to boast about the pain inflicted on detainees during long CIA torture sessions: “And maybe there are people who wish they were on the end of one of those missiles.”

Competing with Ashcroft for the High Authoritarian prize was former NSA chief Michael Hayden, who emphasized the importance of Obama’s drone assassinations, at least in countries the U.S. has deemed to be Al Qaeda havens. “Here’s the strategic question,” Hayden said. “People in Pakistan? I think that’s very clear. Kill ’em. People in Yemen? The same. Kill ’em.”

“We don’t smoke [drug] cartel leaders but personally I’d support it,” remarked Philip Mudd, the former deputy director of Bush’s Counterterrorism Center, earning more guffaws from his fellow panelists and from Herridge. Ironically, Mudd was attempting to argue that counter-terror should no longer be a top U.S. security priority because it poses less of a threat to Americans than synthetic drugs and child obesity.

Reflection was not on the agenda for most of the Security Forum’s participants. When asked by a former US ambassador to Denmark the seminal question “This is a great country, why are we always the bad guy?,” Mudd replied, “They think that anything the U.S. does [in the Middle East], even though we helped Muslim communities in Bosnia and Kuwait, everything is rewritten to make us the bad guys.”

The clamoring about U.S. invasions, drone strikes, bankrolling of Israel’s occupation, and general political meddling, could all be written off as fevered anti-Americanism borne from the desert canyons of the paranoid Arab mind.

And the wars could go on.

Delusions of Empire

Throughout the three days of the Security Forum, the almost uniformly white cast of speakers were called on to discuss recent geopolitical developments, from “Eye-rak” and “Eye-ran” to Egypt, where a military coup had just toppled the first elected government in the country’s history.

Mattis carefully toed the line of the Obama administration, describing the overthrow of Egypt’s government not as a coup, but as “military muscle saddled on top of this popular uprising.”

Warning that using terms like “coup” could lead to a reduction in U.S. aid to Egypt, where the military controls about one-third of the country’s economy, Mattis warned, “We have to be very careful about passing laws with certain words when the reality of the world won’t allow you to.”

Wolf Blitzer mentioned that Egypt’s new military-imposed foreign minister, Nabil Fahmy, had been a fixture in Washington during the Mubarak days. “These are people the West knows, the U.S. knows,” he said of the new cabinet in Cairo. “I assume from the U.S. perspective, the United States is so much more happy with this.”

Later, one of the few Arab participants in the forum, Al Jazeera DC bureau chief Abderrahim Foukara, claimed that the Arab revolts were inspired by the U.S. invasion of Iraq. “The iconic image of Saddam being pulled out of a hole did something to the dynamic between ruler and ruled in the Arab world,” Foukara claimed.

With the revolts blurring the old boundaries imposed on the Arab world during the late colonial era, former CIA director John McLaughlin rose from the audience to call for the U.S. to form a secret, Sikes-Picot-style commission to draw up a new set of borders.

“The American government should now have such a group asking how we should manage those lines and what should those lines be,” McLaughlin told the panelists, who dismissed the idea of a new Great Game even as they discussed tactics for preserving U.S. dominance in the Middle East.

ABC’s Chris Isham asked Jim Jeffrey, the former U.S. ambassador to Iraq, why, with a recession on its hands and Middle Eastern societies spiraling out of control, should the U.S. remain militarily involved in the region. Without hesitation, Jeffrey rattled off the reasons: Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Israel, and “world oil markets.”

“What could we have done better?” Isham asked the ambassador.

“Probably not too much.”

NSA Heroes, Saving Lives of Potential Consumers

While participants in the Security Forum expressed total confidence in American empire, they could not contain their panic, outrage, and fear at the mere mention of Snowden.

“Make no mistake about it: These are great people who we’re slamming and tarnishing and it’s wrong. They’re the heroes, not this other and these leakers!” NSA chief General Keith Alexander proclaimed, earning raucous applause from the crowd.

Snowden’s leaks had prompted a rare public appearance from Alexander, forcing the normally imperious spy chief into the spotlight to defend his agency’s Panopticon-style programs and its dubious mechanisms of legal review. Fortunately for him, NBC’s Pete Williams offered him the opportunity to lash out at Snowden and the media that reported the leaks, asking whether the “terrorists” (who presumably already knew they were being spied on) had changed their behavior as a result of the leaks.

“We have concrete proof that terrorists are taking action, making changes, and it’s gonna make our job harder,” Alexander declared, offering nothing to support his claim.

Alexander appeared in full military regalia, with colorful decorations and medallions covering his left breast. Casting himself as a stern but caring father who has the best interests of all Americans at heart, even if he can’t fully disclose his methods, he turned to the crowd and explained, “The bad guys…hide amongst us to kill our people. Our job is to stop them without impacting your civil liberties and privacy and these programs are set up to do that.”

“The reason we use secrecy is not to hide it from the American people, but to hide it from the people who walk among you and are trying to kill you,” Alexander insisted.

Corporations like AT&T, Google and Microsoft that had been compelled to hand over customer data to the NSA “know that we’re saving lives,” the general claimed. With a straight face, he continued, “And that’s good for business because there’s more people out there who can buy their products.”

Self-Reporting

So who were the “bad guys” who “walk among us,” and how could Americans be sure they had not been ensnared by the NSA’s all-encompassing spying regime, either inadvertently or intentionally? Nearly all the Security Forum participants involved in domestic surveillance responded to this question by insisting that the NSA had the world’s most rigorous program of oversight, pointing to Congress and the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) courts as the best and only means of ensuring that “mistakes” are corrected.

“We have more oversight on this [PRISM] program than any other program in any government that I’m aware of,” Alexander proclaimed, ramming home a talking point repeated throughout the forum.

“I can assure these are some of the judges who are renowned for holding the government to a very high standard,” John Carlin, the Assistant US Attorney General for National Security, stated.

But in the last year, FISA courts received 1,856 applications for surveillance from the government. In 100 percent of cases, they were approved. As for Congress, only two senators, Ron Wyden and Mark Udall, demanded the NSA explain why PRISM was necessary or questioned its legality. Despite the fact that the entire regime of oversight was a rubber stamp, or perhaps because of it, none of those who appeared at the Security Forum to defend it were willing to consider any forum of independent civilian review.

“You have to do [domestic surveillance] within a closed bubble in order to do it effectively,” Dennis Blair, the director of National Intelligence conceded under sustained grilling from the Washington Post’s Barton Gellman, one of the reporters who broke Snowden’s leaks and perhaps the only journalist at the Security Forum who subjected participants to tough scrutiny.

When Gellman reminded Alexander that none of the oversight mechanisms currently in place could determine if the NSA had improperly targeted American citizens with no involvement in terror-related activity, the general declared, “we self-report those mistakes.”

“It can’t be, let’s just stop doing it, cause we know, that doesn’t work,” Alexander maintained. “We’ve got to have some program like [PRISM].”

The wars would go on, and so would the spying.

Reinstituting Public Confidence

During a panel on inter-agency coordination of counter-terror efforts, Mike Leiter, the former director of the National Counterterrorism Center (NCC), suggested that one of the best means of preserving America’s vast and constantly expanding spying apparatus was “by reinstituting faith among the public in our oversight.”

Even as current NCC director Matthew Olsen conceded, “There really are limits in how transparent we can be,” Leiter demanded that the government “give the public confidence that there’s oversight.

Since leaving the NCC, Leiter has become the senior counsel of Palantir Technologies, a private security contractor that conducts espionage on behalf of the FBI, CIA, financial institutions, the LAPD and the NYPD, among others. In 2011, Palantir spearheaded a dirty tricks campaign against critics of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, including journalists, compiling electronic dossiers intended to smear them. Palantir’s target list included progressive groups like Think Progress, SEIU and U.S. Chamber Watch.

In the friendly confines of the Aspen Institute’s Security Forum, Leiter did his best to burnish his company’s tarnished image, and do some damage control on behalf of the national security apparatus it depends on for contracts. Like most other participants, Leiter appeared in smart casual dress, with an open collar, loafers, a loose-fitting jacket and slacks.

“Just seeing us here,” he said, “that inspires [public] confidence, because we’re not a bunch of ogres.”

UPDATE 19OCT2012: MAYDAY! CIA’s Petraeus Tells White House: ‘We Want More Predator Drones’

Spy agency requests highlights a focus on expanding, not curtailing, controversial US programs

(Common Dreams staff)-  Not content with the size of the current fleet and tired of asking to “borrow” from the Pentagon, CIA chief and former US Army General David Petraeus has requested more armed Predator drones in order to broaden the spy agency’s targeted killing program that now operates in several countries across the world.

This, according to a report by theWashington Post, which says Petraeus wants at least 10 more drones for the CIA, an increase of 30 percent, and says that fulfillment of that request, would have “broad implications for counterterrorism policy and whether the CIA gradually returns to being an organization focused mainly on gathering intelligence, or remains a central player in the targeted killing of terrorism suspects abroad.”

The report indicates that the CIA is already planning for expanded operations in North Africa and one official was quoted by the paper as saying, “We’re actually looking forward a little bit,” when talking about future contingencies and likely destinations for US drones.

Critics of the CIA drone program—which continues to be veiled in secrecy despite an ongoing battle with the ACLU and other groups over the agency’s refusal to provide details on its “targeted assassination” program in Pakistan, Yemen, and elsewhere—contend that the rise of armed drones by the US government is fraught with dangers, questions of morality, and international law.

A recent study by the Columbia University Law School’s Human Rights Clinic said that the government’s refusal to release details about its drone program masks the ‘true impact or humanitarian costs’ of the campaign and their study found that the number of innocent people killed by US drones is likely vastly underestimated.

Another recent study by researchers at the Stanford and NYU schools of law says that the program itself is “terrorizing” and that its overall impact is “counterproductive” when it comes to addressing international law, security, and human rights.

Officials interviewed for the Washington Post story say that the Petraeus request for more drones “would have to be evaluated by a group led by President Obama’s counter­terrorism adviser, John O. Brennan.”

The report added:

The U.S. military’s fleet dwarfs that of the CIA. A Pentagon report issued this year counted 246 Predators, Reapers and Global Hawks in the Air Force inventory alone, with hundreds of other remotely piloted aircraft distributed among the Army, the Navy and the Marines.

Petraeus, who had control of large portions of those fleets while serving as U.S. commander in Iraq and Afghanistan, has had to adjust to a different resource scale at the CIA, officials said. The agency’s budget has begun to tighten, after double-digit increases over much of the past decade.

“He’s not used to the small budget over there,” a U.S. congressional official said.

The Culprit, the Lies, and the Uprise


 The Culprit, the Lies, and the Uprise



Stephanie Sledge | The Government Rag | 03 Feb 2011| The Culprit, the Lies, and the Uprise

  

On the 25 Jan 2011, the People of Egypt rose up against their 30 long-years of dictatorship by President Hosni Mubarak citing oppression, starvation, no jobs, no housing, no means of taking care of themselves, or even defend themselves. The Egyptian people spoke loud and clear that they want their government gone and have grown tired of the ongoing stripping of their God-given rights. As the world is glued to mainstream over the weekend, cheering for the people of Egypt, constant flashes of the Obama’s emblem colors of the rising sun”  of light blue and orange appeared all over television. The same puppet masters have slithered in the back door and hijacked the Egyptian revolution. Several indications including the police retreating and military changing sides, the immediate power change to appointed vice-president and CIA pointman Omar Suleiman, the provocateurs that the citizens captured were carrying Military identification and CIA issued weapons, U. S. funding for military, U.S companies supplying the military and police tear gas and tanks, troops heading to Egypt, and finally the government letting 60,000+ people out of prison with instructions to loot the cities wealthy areas. Will the people of Egypt rise up above the puppet masters or will they retreat to accept the same regime?

  

With very close similarities to our current American economic situation including the unemployment rate, sky rocketing food prices and shortages, desecration of the Peoples rights, governmental corruption, the hostile takeover of the mobster central banking cartel, and the continual expansion of the military complex, a revolution on the horizon appears inevitable here in America. The only question we must ask is will we be deceived when they stick a new puppet in and make promises that they won’t keep to advance the pre-planned agenda and the total looting of America by the octopus giant central banking cartel? As the majority appears to support the people for freedom in Egypt, the dark side smells like a design for the beginning of a worldly hostile take-over. It is becoming a worldly problem and it seems this economic crash and global insurrection is now taking place on a global scale.

  

Protesters as of this morning say they will not accept the newly appointed Omar Suleiman to represent them even for a transitional period. The protestors voice that he is the same as the old regime and strong ties to U.S. forces and criminal activities. Suleiman was born in 1936 in southern Egypt. He enrolled in the military and received additional training in the Soviet Union. Along with being a CIA pointman, he was involved in the war in Yemen in 1962, 67, and 73 against Israel and was recognized as a military strategist. Suleiman has been director of EGIS and plays a prominent public role in diplomacy. He acted as a mediator in the Israel-Palestine conflicts. He has strong ties and built relationships with the U.S government and intelligence officials. He has had access to Egypt’s political security files and was classified as a mastermind behind the fragmentation of the Islamist groups who were responsible for the uprising in the state in the 1990’s. The people do not want the same puppets working for the same New World Order Agenda. The people have cried, “we will not be silenced, I will die today.”

  

The U.S is quick to come to the aid of Israel and played it off that the U.S. is concerned about the Egyptian people’s “universal rights” while temporarily blacking out to the hard facts that the US uses Egypt as a Rendition Center for secretly torturing people, so that they do not get the blame. In an article written by Crooks and Liars, Hillary Clinton is quoted over the weekend saying, “We believe that democracy, human rights, economic reform are in the best interests of the Egyptian people. Any government that does not try to move in that direction cannot meet the legitimate needs of the people. And in the 21st century, it is highly vulnerable to what we have seen in the region and beyond. People are not going to stand by any longer and not be given the opportunity to fulfill their own God-given potential.” Democracy? That’s a laugh in the face to the Egyptian people when Omar Suleiman, the newly appointed vice president, was the CIA’s point man on extraordinary rendition in Egypt. Could these revolutions taking place across the world be CIA-driven that points to the New World Order’s Agenda to bring the world under one command in the name of Peace and Security? Vice-president Biden is quoted telling Americans through mainstream, “Egypt’s Mubarak no dictator, he shouldn’t step down” This statement is just asinine to the world.  Is this a U.S. uprising? Are the people of Egypt sending a message that they are tired of the United States policing and controlling the people for the Fascist Elites hiding behind the curtain?

The US relationship with Egypt can be traced by following the money. In 2004, The Christian Science Monitor reported,

“Aid is central to Washington‘s relationship with Cairo. The US has provided Egypt with $1.3 billion a year in military aid since 1979, and an average of $815 million a year in economic assistance. All told, Egypt has received over $50 billion in US largesse since 1975. The money is seen as bolstering Egypt‘s stability, support for US policies in the region, US access to the Suez Canal, and peace with Israel. But some critics question the aid’s effectiveness in spurring economic and democratic development in the Arab world’s most populous country – a higher US priority after Sept. 11, 2001.”

In another report in 1991, The New York Times reports,

PARIS, May 26 — The United States and its allies have decided to forgive half the $20.2 billion that Egypt owes them, partly in thanks for the support it gave the anti-Iraq coalition during the Persian Gulf war, Egyptian officials said today.”

On The Power Hour News on the GCN Network, Joyce Riley expressed concern over how the U.S. forgave debt to Egypt in exchange for their support of the Gulf War.

“7.1 billion+ in military debt was forgiven by the U.S. for the Egyptian support of the Gulf War. Since when have we been forgiven for our own debts? Tax the backs of the American people, but forgive Egypt in exchange for the war.” Israel, Egypt, and Pakistan…what are we thinking listeners? “The people had to protect themselves – they grabbed golf clubs, knives, tools out of their cars, machetes – anything to protect themselves…listeners, second amendment! second amendment! second amendment!!”

What about the military and the police suddenly retreating and switching sides?  When the riots first broke out, the people were hit with heavy police forces resulting in many injuries and deaths. Suddenly, they pulled out and they were out of there…are they really supporting the people or were they asked to stand down? They were then left with the military from Egypt who is also heavily protecting the US embassy. CNN’s Ben Wedeman reports, “saw a truckload of riot police leaving Cairo this morning. They looked defeated and scared. people say “they should be.” Then, in another report , The Wall Street Journal is quoted, “According to a top news source from Egypt, the military meanwhile seems to have switched sides; as protesters swarmed over Cairo’s central square, the officers stationed there threw off their helmets and joined them, crying, “The army and the people are one hand in hand”. Protesters hoisted the officers on their shoulders in triumph. One professor said, “The government is trying to transform the people’s revolution into looting mobs so they can justify cracking down”. President Mubarak still has allies like Saudi Arabia today condemned the protests, with King Abdullah calling the ring-leaders “infiltrators” who were trying to destabilize the country.”

  

Were they standing down to pacify the people as the regime makes way for the arrival of American occupation? Recent reports surfaced that Connecticut National Guard Detachment 2, Company I, 185th Aviation Regiment of Groton has mobilized and will deploy to the Sinai Peninsula, Egypt, to support the Multinational Force and Observers two weeks ago. Another example of how the agenda was already in the works to deploy American troops before the riots broke out is when the USS Kearsarge left a week or two ago heading for Egypt. Smells like a preplanned engagement on the part of the U.S. when occupancy in Egyptwas planned prior to the riots! The NWO regime is now just bringing total tyranny to the world in plain sight. Secret US document discloses support for protesters -“the American Embassy in Cairo helped a young dissident attend a U.S. sponsored summit for activists in New York, while working to keep his identity secret from Egyptian state police. On his return to Cairo in December 2008, the activist told US diplomats that an alliance of opposition groups had drawn up a plan to overthrow President Hosni Mubarak and install a democratic government in 2011.”

  

Provocateurs (police or military personnel) have been spotted, captured, and exposed looting and causing prep-planned violence throughout the crisis. Paid provocateurs seem to be in every major rally, protest, or demonstration that we have seen lately in the news. These thugs are responsible for the acts of violence in many incidences as they dress in plain clothes or ski-masks. They are used so that the liar media can drill into the heads of their viewers that the protestors are at fault and lure the public into believing peaceful protests are violent by the people. According to an article by Daily Paul

“You would think that our “ally” using part of his $1.5 billion a year in US military aid to pay convicts and security forces to cause mayhem would be a big story, but I guess not in the American major media.”
  
 “At FDL: Mubarak Tries to Sow Chaos, Egyptians Still Say No , Ayman Nour, opposition leader and head of the Ghad Party, told Al-Masry Al-Youm that his fellow party members have caught several thugs who work for the Interior Ministry. After capturing them in downtown Cairo and Heliopolis, Nour’s followers found ministry of interior IDs on them, Nour said. “The regime is trying to project the worst image possible to make it clear to people that they have only one of two alternatives: either the existing order or chaos,” he said.
  
In Nasr City, an Eastern Cairo neighborhood, residents attempting to restore security told Al-Masry Al-Youm that looters were caught yesterday. “They were sent by the government. The government got them out of prison and told them to rob us,” says Nameer Nashaat, a resident working alongside other youths to preserve order in the district. “When we caught them, they said that the Ministry of Interior has sent them.”
 
 Infowars reported: [Al Jazeera reporter] Ayman Mohyeldin reports that eyewitnesses have said “party thugs” associated with the Egyptian regime’s Central Security Services – in plainclothes but bearing government-issued weapons – have been looting in Cairo. Ayman says the reports started off as isolated accounts but are now growing in number.

In a report by Raw Story, U.S. companies are providing the tear gas being used by police to disperse onto protesters in Cairo, Egypt and were made in America, according to a television news report. The labels on canisters say that the tear gas was produced by Combined Systems International (CSI) of Jamestown, Pa., Egyptian protesters with photographic proof told ABC News Friday.

  

The Muslim Brotherhood was blamed and exploited across the mainstream media worldwide as the culprits since the beginning of the riots. CNN has been using “keywords” regarding the brotherhood, insinuating that the Muslim brotherhood is the next Al-Qaeda.  “Should we call them a terrorist group or anti-american?” As Americans and the world wake up to the facts that Al-Qaeda was never real and was a U.S. CIA creation, the government now has to find a new group to pin the terror attacks on.  See how this is a false flag arising? They are trying to paint them out to be the next worldly Boogie-man as much as they can so they can be the next imaginary terrorists to keep the fear mongering and wars going. It’s like a giant real life video game for these people. Well, now that everyone knows that Al-Qaeda is not really real in a sense, they need another group to put the scapegoat on and blame to detour the people from the truth. The people of the world need to point the finger in the direction that the money flows.

 

Where is the heartbeat of America? I tried to listen but it has disappeared. Where are the veterans? Is it going to take the American people loosing everything and half their family members jailed for unconstitutional laws, or even better, disarm the people before we demand change? When will we realize that we are the boss of our own government and that we the people have allowed the creation this psychopathic entity to terrorize the world?  When will the people who are awake going to slap the people who are dumbed down? We have to go beyond the lies and pull the curtain back to expose these puppet masters and NWO evilists. Guess what people, we are supporting both sides of the fence. It is important for us to see the true facts about how this is coming down. Across America, a tunneling sound is roaring across the networks urging the American public, “do not turn your weapons in or give away, we cannot be disarmed or we will be like the Egyptians.” 

 

Continuous civilian chatter relay messages through networking forums that the feel of a spiritual war is coming. It is a fight against good and evil, but not like we have ever seen before – – this time, it is a spiritual war. A fight for the soul. I am sure as Google, Facebook, and other networking sites that are tracking and spying for the powers-to-be, already know this and that is why the Internet Kill Switch  is coming to America. They have to shut the people up. The only thing they really haven’t taken into account is shutting the Internet might help them temporarily, but that is not going to stop Americans from communicating in other means across world. Remember, we still have time to get our land-lines back, stock up on the shortwave radios, and if all else fails, find Paul Revere!

Watergate Exposed:  Set-up of President Nixon, assassinations, cover-ups, and Grand Jury corruption

Douglas Caddy, the original attorney for the Watergate burglars, and Earl Robert Merritt Jr. aka Butch Merritt, a confidential informant for the Washington Metropolitan Police Department Intelligence Division, came together to expose the hard realities of corruption beyond comprehension in a manuscript called, Watergate Exposed: How the President of the United States and the Watergate Burglars were Set up As Told to Douglas Caddy, original Attorney for the Watergate Seven, appeared as guests on The Power Hour with Joyce Riley on the GCN Network in an attempt to disclose  new factual material about the Watergate scandal and how historical consciousness have been altered to obscure the truth about a set-up so organized and manipulated uncovering  new players and puppet masters behind the event that led to President Richard Nixon’s resignation. As new details exposed by Caddy and Merritt emerge, America wakes up to more governmental agency corruption, agency set-ups, lies, cover ups, and assassinations.

Douglas Caddy, LLD, is an attorney, the cofounder of Young Americans for Freedom, and served as the criminal lawyer for the burglars in the Watergate break-in. He is also admittedly homosexual and was targeted to be assassinated by the CIA using recruited confidential informant Robert Merritt (Butch Merritt) because of the CIA believed he knew too much about the agency.  He claims we need to revisit Watergate because the outcome of the Vietnam War,  all the people killed, and the (CIA) Central Intelligence Agency’s  involvement and role setting up President Nixon and the burglars resulting in Nixon’s resignation in 1974.

Robert Merritt (Butch Merritt),  was a man who became a confidential informant or tool for the CIA, was an admitted assassin and had association with Cointelpro. He came from an alcoholic family with a background of being sexually molested by a deranged Catholic Church priest at the age of 17. He was also a petty criminal offender that had a few run-ins with the police in his hometown in West Virginia. Merritt became a top figure on the totem pole in the Watergate scandal when he was targeted and recruited to be a confidential informant in 1970.  After being fired from his job, he was approached by Detective Carl Shoffler at his apartment at 2121 Pace Street in Washington, D.C. and given $1000 in cash to compensate him.  Merritt says that he feels the sexual abuse from the Catholic Church priest when he was 17 might have been a planned preparation for his future assignments as a confidential informant and assassin because he fit the description of a gay molested boy with a low self-esteem and nobody to talk to.

Detective Carl Shoffler was a hard-wired officer who was assigned to the Washington Metropolitan Police Department’s Intelligence Division by the Military Intelligence Agency. He also worked for the CIA and Interpol. Shoffler recruited Merritt as a confidential informant to spy on activists, blacks, the gay community, straights, the jews, anti-war activists, or anyone who the government thought was a potential threat or enemy. Merritt was to gather intelligence on people that fit the description of the enemy. Officer Shoffler began a sexual relationship with Merritt and moved himself, his wife, and kids into Merritt’s home which later became a central gathering station for the police department. Merritt and Shoffler continued a sexual relationship for two years. It ended just shortly after the Watergate break-in when Shoffler moved out of his apartment.

Two weeks prior to the Watergate  break-in on June 1, 1972, Merritt was given confidential  information by James Reed aka Rita, a drag queen friend of Merritt and operator for a telephone switchboard, who listened in on telephone calls and overheard people who identified themselves as “The Crimson Rose.” These conversations revealed that  Watergate was going to take place.  Merritt then tipped off Detective Shoffler with the information. Instead of preventing the break in, Shoffler decided to bring in Intelligence and set-up the burglars by sending them in a second time to get an envelope with a key to a safe deposit box that contained confidential information. Shoffler’s intention was to gain fame as the “officer that arrested the burglars” and get rid of President Nixon using a method of wiretap triangulation that he had learned from his prior training at the National Security Agency’s Vint Hill Farm Station in Virginia. Originally the break-in was planned for June 18th but Shoffler sent a message across to the Watergate burglars who were tapping the DNC’s phones that led the burglars to believe that there was something in there so important that it could not be left behind. The date was changed from the 18th to the 17th – which was also Shoffler’s birthday. He wasn’t scheduled to work that shift but he took on another shift and was parked a block away in a police car when the call came in reporting the burglary resulting in the immediate arrests.

After the arrest of the five burglars at the Watergate Complex at 2:30am, a call came in to Douglas Caddy, attorney for E. Howard Hunt (former client and friend of Caddy) at his office in Washington. Hunt then came to Caddy’s home at 3:35am and was immediately retained as their attorney by E. Howard Hunt, G. Gordan Liddy, and the five arrested burglars. Caddy claims that Hunt and Liddy were in charge of the burglary operation by the CIA and was across at the Watergate Hotel next door to the Democratic Headquarters. When the arrests of the five burglars took place, Hunt and Liddy were able to avoid entrapment. Caddy then called one of the partners in his law firm to help obtain a criminal attorney the  following morning in court. E. Howard Hunt worked in the White House in an investigative capacity and G. Gordan Liddy was with the Finance Committee for Reelection of the President and reported to higher up people. Caddy claims it was not Hunt or Liddy’s idea and did not orchestrate the plan to get rid of President Nixon but were the principles in carrying out the assignment.

Caddy knew E. Howard Hunt prior to the Watergate arrests. After graduating from New York University Law School in 1966, he went to work for General Foods, Inc. which was the largest food manufacturer. After a year, General Foods wanted Caddy to open up an office in Washington but first, they wanted him to go to work at their public relations office which was at the Robert Mullen Company so he could get to know Washington better. Caddy went to work for the Mullen Company and became aware later that the company was a CIA front doing business with and organized by the Central Intelligence in 1949. The Mullen CIA front Company had been associated with doing business with American Bar Association, Church of Jesus Christ and Ladder Day Saints, American Automobile Association, General Foods, Dept of Health, Dept of Education, and Welfare and many more. Caddy claims that General Foods was well aware of this and was part of the CIA operations staffing offices all over the world with agents. Howard Hunt, who was retiring from the CIA (so-do-speak), was placed at the at the Mullen Company by Director Richard Helms about six months after Caddy. After discovering that they had a lot in common, including knowing former CIA agent (Bill) William F. Buckley, they became friends.  He left Mullen Co in 1979 and went to work at a Law Firm where Hunt asked for Caddy to be his attorney on other issues.  Hunt also admitted he was a bench warmer for the Kennedy assassination in a taped confession to his son.

Two days after the arrest, Caddy claims that Detective Shoffler had approached Merritt with two FBI agents. They asked Merritt to get to know Caddy more intimately because they knew he was homosexual and wanted him to establish a relationship with him to find out what he knew. Merritt claimed later it repulsed him but thought it was practical and did it anyway. Merritt claims that 11 days (June 28th) after the break in, Detective Shoffler again came to him with four more Intelligence agents and asked him to kill Caddy by inserting a tainted suppository inside him during sexual relations. The CIA was paranoid because they were convinced the attorney had too much information about the Central Intelligence Agency due to his personal and professional relationship with Howard Hunt. The CIA was also afraid that Caddy might have looked into files while working at the Mullen Company and might have had knowledge about the murder of President Allende of Chili which made him an extreme threat to the agency. Caddy denies ever looking at files at Mullen Company while he worked there but also explains that just two months prior to the Watergate break-in that Howard Hunt had invited him to a cocktail party with the General Counsel of the CIA and wanted him to join the agency and take an assignment to open a hotel in Nicaragua to lure the Sandinistas there. He declined the offer because he knew he couldn’t take the assignment  because he was gay. Merritt was then told that he was to take the two blue pills that they gave him after he inserted the suppository to make him nauseous so that he would have an excuse to leave. Obviously, Merritt did not carry this part of the operation out and later the blue pills were found to be poisonous and would have killed Merritt as well.  

On the same day that Merritt was approached to carry out the assassination, (June 28th), Caddy was at the courthouse and was handed a subpoena by the Assistant District Attorney Donald Campbell. He was literally taken by the arm to appear before the Grand Jury making him the first witness in the case. He was the attorney for the defendants and was pulled before the grand jury to be the first witness. As the case progressed, on July 12th, Judge John Sirica openly accused Caddy of being one of the principles in the crime – which later turned out to be the crime of the century. Caddy claims the accusations were a complete shock to him and for his law firm. Judge Sirica told him unless he answers the 38 questions before the Grand Jury he would be held in contempt of court. He felt this was a violation of client-attorney privilege and the right to counsel so he resisted and on July 13th he was held in contempt and incarcerated for not answering the questions.

The  Court of Appeals a few days later ordered Caddy to testify and answer the questions before the Grand Jury or be held again in contempt and face further incarceration. Caddy claims that this was discussed in the Oval Office and Nixon asked his assistant,  John Daniel Ehrlichman, “You mean the Circuit Court ordered an attorney to testify? Why didn’t Caddy appeal to the US Supreme Court?”  These claims are recorded on Oval Office tapes. Caddy replies by explaining that the reason he didn’t was because “they thought they had built enough record against them for falsely accusing the defendant’s attorney of being a participant in the crime when in-fact Caddy had no participation in it at all that even if they were convicted they would probably get off on an appeal.”  Howard Hunt said in his own Biography, “If Judge Sirica was treating Caddy, an officer of the court so summarily when he was not involved in Watergate,  then those that were involved could expect neither fairness or understanding from him. As the events unfolded, this conclusion became tragically accurate.”

Why did the cover-up take place? Howard Hunt felt responsible for recruiting the five involved that were arrested and four were Cubans. He believed that they would not get a fair trial so they embarked on a cover-up. Caddy goes on to say that, ” one reason why he was targeted and did what they did to him was because he was homosexual and they were out to destroy him. This was the  primary motivation for the Court of Appeals to do what they did to him because they found out he was gay. I feel the story of Watergate is that if they would have just allowed me and Merritt to testify to what we knew, this cover-up would not have had to take place, but instead, they paraded our homosexuality and were subjected to things we should have never been subjected to. The primary intention of Watergate was to get rid of the President.”

Why would they want to get rid of President Nixon? Caddy explains that was the reason Shoffler brought in the Intelligence agency into the situation. “They wanted to get rid of Nixon because they were afraid as he was calling for the reorganization of the CIA and over 3000 Appointee  resignations. Nixon also asked for the files on the Kennedy assassination and was advocating for national healthcare. The CIA became scared and began exerting their powers to get Nixon out of office.  Officer Shoffler had a personal agenda to become the most famous detective of the world. Shoffler allowed it to happen even though he had two weeks prior knowledge to stop the break-in.” In a 1984 best seller, Secret Agenda, by Jim Hougan, Shoffler confesses in an interview of having prior knowledge of the Watergate break in and admits to the relationship he had with Merritt. “The crime of the century was the way Shoffler set up his triangularization and send the burglars in a second time by telling him there was an envelope left there that had key to a safe deposit box that had credible information and could not be left behind,” Caddy says.   Shoffler in essence set the burglars up by changing the date of the burglary from the June 18th to the June 17th.

Caddy also explains that  “the whole world has suffered because of what Detective Shoffler and the Intelligence agents did and it is the primary reason there  is no cooperation in Washington today. It is the Legacy of Watergate.”  When asked by Joyce Riley if he felt this behavior was going on today in Washington, he replied, ” we have to assume after the 9/11 Patriot Act that they have files on everyone in Congress and the citizens to gain intelligence and blackmail people who have criminal backgrounds and those that exhibit what they consider unacceptable behavior.” Later, Merritt confirmed in the interview that part of the operation was to just make up lies and call people to spread false rumors. “These were cold calculation campaigns.”  Most shocking Caddy said, “He never appeared before the Senate Watergate Committee but that Hunt did in an Executive Session. Hunt testified for three days, nearly 8 hours under oath in 1973. The first question was about his homosexuality and followed by moral condonation. Hunt told Caddy that the transcriber was asked to leave the room by Senator Howard Baker and no transcripts have been found on his testimony. Caddy claims that Hunt told him that “he was stopped by staff member, Senator Ted Kennedy and threatened with jail time prior to the testimony if he disclosed everything he knew.”

Another shocking example, Caddy says,  “when I was forced to appeared before the Grand Jury I was the first to be offered the “hush money” but I refused it. I was unable to testify to the “hush money”  because I was under oath and was cut off by prosecutors on July 19th, 1972.  The transcripts were altered and the transcripts of  Baldwin, one of witnesses, who was across the street in the Howard Johnson Hotel transcribing the wiretapping. “When you want to get to the truth – when they alter grand jury testimony, it gets to the heart of how the system operates. When I had to answer the 38 questions that incriminated Hunt and Liddy in the break in, that’s when the cover-up began because at that point, they didn’t believe they would get a fair trail.”

Merritt claims that he did what he did because he thought it was a RED, WHITE, and BLUE issue. He is the first confidential informant that has come out and spoke the truth about the horrific corruption taking place in the CIA, FBI, and the government. He claims that he got involved with intelligence because they made him feel that it was a way for him to serve his country. He also claims that they beat it into his head that anyone who was against what they were doing was in fact a terrorist – an enemy of the government. He believed these lies and carried out horrific crimes and assassinations for the powers-to-be. Merritt claims to this date, there are people sitting in prison who he falsely testified against that are innocent but feels there is nothing he can do about it now because too much time had passed and he does not have the money to hire attorneys to change these outcomes. Merritt also believes that Detective Carl Shoffler was the real “Deep Throat” in the case because he had to many contacts at the Washington Post and that it was not Mark Felt who was identified by Vanity Fair Magazine. Merritt has been diagnosed with a rare cancer and is wanting to reveal the hidden information to the world to make amends for his destructive damage he caused to people. He claims that he passed out tainted candy to people, carried out assassinations, and participated in other criminal acts when he was being used by Carl Shoffler and the CIA. Merritt wrote a letter to Senator Bond admitting to all these crimes that he was assigned to do as a confidential informant.

Americans Counting on California to End the Deceptive Reefer Madness Campaign 2010

Marijuana is Medicine

Americans Message to California: Grow Backbone and End The Fake “Reefer Madness” Campaign”

The deceptive campaign for “Reefer Madness” exploded in the 1930’s when the federal government founded the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN) headed by Commissioner Harry Anslinger. The Bureau launched a deceptive misinformation campaign about Marijuana while recruiting the services of Hollywood and tabloids to exploit and persuade the American public that the drug belonged to the devil causing an increase in violent sexual and criminal acts across the nation. As time has passed and history tells a story, the Americans have awakened to the phony drug war and are counting on California to lead the Nation this November to end the “governmental reefer madness” and stand up to the Feds scare tactics and threats. As citizens across the nation walk out of the spoon-fed false belief system on the make-up Marijuana effects, the Feds are stepping up action on the war front to jail, fine, punish, and bring down those that are exposing the deceptive propaganda campaign. 

In the 1930’s the recreational drug Marijuana was mostly used in the American-Mexican and African-American jazz musician communities. When the FBN launched its deceptive campaign of propaganda to the public, they targeted the parents of young children. In a Norml article written on the history of Marijuana prohibition, the lies fed down the tube to the citizens were of ” Exaggerated accounts of violent crimes committed by immigrants reportedly intoxicated by marijuana became popularized. Once under the influence of the drug, criminals purportedly knew no fear and lost all inhibitions. For example, a news bulletin issued by the FBN in the mid-1930s purported that a user of marijuana “becomes a fiend with savage or ‘cave man’ tendencies. His sex desires are aroused and some of the most horrible crimes result. He hears light and sees sound. To get away from it, he suddenly becomes violent and may kill. Similar reports swept the country. A widely publicized issue of the Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology asserted that the marijuana user is capable of “great feats of strength and endurance, during which no fatigue is felt. … Sexual desires are stimulated and may lead to unnatural acts, such as indecent exposure and rape. … [Use of marijuana] ends in the destruction of brain tissues and nerve centers, and does irreparable damage. If continued, the inevitable result is insanity, which those familiar with it describe as absolutely incurable, and, without exception ending in death.” A Washington Times editorial published shortly before Congress held its first hearing on the issue argued: “The fatal marihuana [marijuana] cigarette must be recognized as a deadly drug and American children must be protected against it.” This steady stream of propaganda influenced 27 states to pass laws against marijuana in the years leading up to federal prohibition and set the stage both culturally and politically for the passage of the “Marihuana Tax Act in 1937.”

Due to massive profits to be made off prohibition, Hollywood exploited the establishment’s interests and promoted the propaganda to the public. The following two videos are early Hollywood Marijuana propaganda movies put out to convince the public that the drug would kill you, turn you into a vampire, murder, rapist, become sexually permissive, and lead you to harsher drugs.

 

What do American’s want California to do? In a Marijuana debate held earlier this year, Retired Superior Court Judge James P. Gray testifies in favor of a marijuana legalization bill in the California Assembly on October 28, 2009. Judge Gray is a member of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition and encourages the legalization to end the vicious cycle of prison time and violations being executed upon the American people and wastefully spending money on Marijuana and less on real violent crimes. He explains that undercutting the price and taking the control out of the hands of the cartel would stop the nonsense violence and killings over the drug war. Legalizing it would allow more time to focus on real crimes and would stop the prisons from being packed full of people who are Marijuana smokers.

But not all agree with the legalization of Marijuana whether it is for medical or recreational use. A heavy debate with Drug Free America Foundation and Students for Sensible Drug Policy appeared on a RTAmerica video over the legalization issue America is facing today.

 
As Elections 2010 approaches, Americans are keeping their eyes and ears on California voters to make the bold decision to stand up to the Feds or to remain in fear over the marijuana issue. Regardless, the Americans are counting on California to take a stand and end the deceptive campaign of “Reefer Madness” that the government created and marketed to the American people for over 70 years.

Mainstream Blackout on Obama Crimes: March to Washington 2010

Mainstream Blackout on Obama Crimes:  Americans Greatest March to Washington 2010

As evidence mounts against President Obama/aka Barry Soetoro/aka Saebarkah, Americans are growing more unrest over his true identity of what millions of citizens believe to be that of a modern-day con man. As more cover-ups continue on the governmental front, the sleeping giant of American people are marching to Washington, D.C., October 23, 2010 to expose this new evidence to the world. It all started with Philip J. Berg, Esquire, the first Attorney who filed suit against Obama challenging his lack of “qualifications” to serve as President of the United States. Like a Halloween hunt, clues surfaced over Obama’s real birth certificate origins which could determine who this man really is and alleged ties to the establishment. As American’s find out more and more lies and cover-ups being exposed to the public, the mainstream remains silent over the Obama crimes issue.

In an immediate release by ObamaCrimes, the hunt for the truth has also exposed an alleged cover up questioning motives behind the State of Hawaii’s involvement in suppressing evidence and questions why one man is so important that Hawaii is willing to commit Misprision of Felony for him.

“Hawaii is covering this up for political reasons to protect Obama. Only they know the ultimate reasons they are all willing to commit Misprision of Felony at this point in time given the mounting evidence that Obama was not physically born in Hawaii. Obama may have amended his record since 1961 to try to reinforce and cover up the original fraudulent filing. But his online COLB clearly shows that when it was FILED it was never finally ACCEPTED. This is a national disgrace that our entire system of laws including the Constitution and all legal records are being subverted and subordinated to cover up for Obama’s continued fraud on the nation as to his true legal identity. What is so important about this one man that Hawaii is willing to see the nation destroyed by his corruption and lies from birth by his family and continued on all his life by Obama. The man is a grifter and conman.”

The March takes place on September 23, 2010 at the U.S. Capital on the West Front. Thousands of Americans are due to stand up and demand exposure to what some believe to be the greatest National Security threat America faces today and questions whether or not our government is being run by a con, a fake, a phony.  In a video by Philip J. Berg, he gives an overview of alleged evidence that is mounting against Obama and the reasons for the mass march to Washington.
