Courage, Change & Chance

It takes courage to take a chance on change.

Terrorists "R" Us

by Stephen Lendman

State-sponsored terrorism defines US policy. Doublespeak duplicity conceals it. Doublethink manipulates public opinion to ignore inconvenient truths. Howard Zinn once asked: "How can you make war on terrorism if war is terrorism?"

 Waging war on terrorism "gives government a perpetual war and a perpetual atmosphere of repression." "And it generates perpetual profits for corporations. But it's going to make the world a far more unstable and dangerous place." "Terrorism replaced communism as the rationale for the militarization of the country, for military adventures abroad, and for the suppression of civil liberties at home."

Since WW II, "there has not been a more warlike nation in the world than the United States." Zinn added that "(g)overnments are terrorists on an enormously large scale." None in world history match America. Waging war on humanity is official policy. US law calls "international terrorism" activities involving:
(A) "violent acts or acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State, or that would be a criminal violation if committed within the jurisdiction of the United States or of any State;"
(B) are intended to - (i) "intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and
(C) occur primarily outside the territorial jurisdiction of the United States...."

The US Army Operational Concept for Terrorism (TRADOC Pamphlet No. 525-37, 1984) called it "the calculated use of violence or threat of violence to attain goals that are political, religious, or ideological in nature....through intimidation, coercion, or instilling fear." Merriam-Webster calls it "the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion."

The Oxford Dictionary calls it "the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims." In his book "Terrorism, Theirs and Ours," Eqbal Ahmad called state-sponsored terrorism most important of all. It includes "torture, burning of villages, destruction of entire peoples, (and) genocide" on a massive scale. It's called "self-defense," protecting "national security," and/or "promoting democracy." Doing so conceals America's dark side. War on humanity follows. "Who will define the parameters of terrorism, or decide where terrorists lurk," asked Ahmad? "Why none other than the United States, which can from the rooftops of the world set out its claim to be sheriff, judge and hangman, all at one and the same time."

In his book "The Real Terror Network: Terrorism in Fact and Propaganda," Edward Herman discussed US-backed authoritarian states advancing a free-market "development model." It's done for corporate gain through state-sponsored terror on homegrown resistance. Earlier it was about protecting the "free world" from communism. Always it involves manufactured threats, fear-mongering, and creating enemies when none exist. Terrorists are them, not us.

Martin Luther King called America "the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today." He did so for good reason. Today it's more menacing than ever. Humanity's survival is at stake. In his book "The Culture of Terrorism," Noam Chomsky cited the "Fifth Freedom." He called it "the freedom to rob, to exploit and to dominate society, to undertake any course of action to insure that existing privilege is protected and advanced." Doing so entails manufacturing consent. Fear-mongering replaces truth. Patriotism and democratic values are highlighted. People are manipulated to support what harms their own self-interest.

Imperial aggression is called humanitarian intervention. Civil liberties are suppressed for our own good. Patriotism means going along with state-sponsored lawlessness. Myths substitute for truth. So do big lies. They're weapons of mass deception. They're key in advancing America's imperium. Post-9/11 policies headed the nation toward full-blown tyranny. Last week's Boston bombings perhaps advanced it closer. People are manipulated to go along.

 Gore Vidal once said: "As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action." "You liberate a city by destroying it. Words are used to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests."

Orwell envisioned a dark future. He called it "a boot stamping on a human face - forever." America's war on terror reflects it. The fullness of time will explain what's next. Michel Chossudovsky asked: "Do the Boston Bombings constitute a point of transition, a watershed which ultimately contributes to the gradual suspension of constitutional government?" This type threat is real. In 1933, Nazism replaced Weimer republican democracy.

 In 1973, Augusto Pinochet's reign of terror followed Salvador Allende's social democracy. In his book "Friendly Fascism," Bertram Gross described a slow, powerful "drift toward greater concentration of power and wealth in a repressive Big Business-Big Government," Big Brother alliance. Its friendly face conceals raw power heading America "toward a new and subtly manipulative form of corporatist serfdom."

In his 1935 novel titled, "It Can't Happen Here," Sinclair Lewis discussed a self-styled reformer/populist/demagogue exploiting human misery during hard times. Candidate Merzelium "Buzz" Windrip promised prosperity. Doing so hid his dark side. In office he established militarism and unconstitutional governance. He convened military tribunals for civilians. He called dissenters traitors. He institutionalized tyranny. He put political enemies in concentration camps. He created Minute Men paramilitaries. They terrorized public opposition. He destroyed democracy, declared martial law, usurped dictatorial powers, and circumvented Congress. He made himself supreme ruler. Indeed it can happen here. Perhaps it's closer than most people realize.

Events post-Boston Bombings demand close scrutiny. Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were convicted in the court of public opinion. Obama pronounced guilt asking "why did young men who grew up and studied here….resort to such violence? How did they plan and carry out these attacks, and did they receive any help?" Mossad-connected DEBKAfile called both brothers "double agents." They were "hired by US and Saudi intelligence to penetrate the Wahhabi jidadist networks which….spread across the restive Russian Caucasian." "Instead, the two former Chechens betrayed their mission and went secretly over to the radical Islamist networks. (They became) the first terrorist operatives to import al Qaeda terror to the United States through a winding route outside the Middle East - the Caucasus." The so-called Chechen connection and claims about both brothers having links to radical Islam don't wash. They reflect media manipulated deception. No evidence suggests it. They were born in Kyrgyzstan. They moved to Dagestan. Over 10 years ago, they came to America with their family. They were too young to have ties back home.

A previous article said Senators Lindsey Graham (R. SC), John McCain (R. AZ) and Kelly Ayotte (R. NH), as well as Rep. Peter King (R. NY) want Dzhokhar held as an "enemy combatant." They want him denied fundamental rights. In Hamdi v. Rumsfeld, the Supreme Court ruling said: "There is no bar to this Nation’s holding one of its own citizens as an enemy combatant." Earlier, Francis Boyle said the four Geneva Conventions superseded the “long-defunct World War II" designation. Bush administration officials targeted "unlawful enemy combatants." Obama calls them "unprivileged enemy belligerents." Language changed but not intent or lawlessness. King also wants more surveillance. He claims "It keeps us ahead of the terrorists who are constantly trying to kill us."

 Big lies repeated enough are believed. Monday headlines claimed both brothers planned other attacks. No credible evidence suggests they planned any. None except for what's fabricated. Doing so links them to Boston. Without cold, hard, verifiable facts, it doesn't wash. It doesn't matter. They're both pronounced guilty. Dzhokhar hasn't a chance in court if he gets there. Jurors will be intimidated to convict. On April 21, The New York Times headlined "Suspects Seemed Set for Attacks Beyond Boston," saying: Both brothers "were armed with a small arsenal of guns, ammunition and explosives when they first confronted the police early Friday, and were most likely planning more attacks, the authorities said Sunday." Planting incriminating evidence reflects longstanding police policy. Doing so conceals their own crimes. Anzoro Tsarnaev said both his sons had nothing to do with terrorism. They had no training or knowledge of explosives or firearms, he said. They were set up. US "special services went after them because my sons are Muslims and don't have anyone in America to protect them." Zubeidat Tsarnaev called her sons innocent. She said FBI operatives hounded Tamerlan for perhaps five years. They monitored his actions. They knew what Internet sites he accessed. Without justification, they called him an extremist leader. He was being set up for what followed.

What happened begs the question. How could both brothers plan a terrorist act without FBI operatives knowing? Numerous times they entrapped Muslims. They did so illegally. Charges alleged they were planning what they never intended. Always the FBI and/or local authorities intervened in time to stop them. Why not Boston? Evidence suggests neither brother was involved. Previous articles explained. If Dzhokhar survives, he'll likely face life in prison or the death penalty. It won't be the first time injustice substituted for judicial fairness. It's longstanding US policy.

Global awakening to false-flag terrorism, Copernican revolution

This article by Dr. Kevin Barrett reminds us of all the lies that most of us have forgotten.   In our efforts to expose every new false flag they pull on us, we need to remember the history of the NWO and the tactics, both old and new, they continue to use.

Terrorism or Tyranny? Preludes and Provocations

By Jean Bush The purpose of this article is not to prove this was a false flag, that has been covered by more competent researchers than I, but to show how these events are being used to condition Americans for the coming dictatorship.

  The above post is nearly impossible to read so I will quote it from another site: Anonymous: 4/15/13 shortly after the bombings.

“WARNING: Laws are being written to screw you. I work on a security commission and I’ve just received word to start campaigning on a campaign we’ve been working on for the last two months and now it all makes sense. I’ll keep it as short as I can.

They’re going to pin this on a male late teens to early 20’s and say he did it because he’s unstable. They are going to find firearms and a NRA book in his home. They are going to say he used reloading powder for the explosion and that reloading powder shouldn’t be on sale to the public.

 They are going to say that because the powder in ammunition can be used for explosions that the number of rounds you can buy should be limited and taxed to help pay for these events. I can’t do anything or I’ll lose my job and possibly face criminal charges.

  Please don’t let them get away with it. They won’t find the suspect til later this week and the raid is issued to occur on Friday. This was a staged event. The people hurt were real but the event was planned.

   Don’t let them hurt our rights.

I am at work so I used a copy of a picture from another thread. Also please don’t mention me, it will seriously hurt me.”

As you can see by now, there were two suspects, one supposedly dead and the other, a young teenage boy of 19. There was no gunpowder found, at this point, but pressure cookers filled with ball bearings and nails. No word yet on how the devices were activated. It is very suspicious how the FBI (Frauds Bullies & Idiots) managed to pinpoint these two young men immediately after the bombings, when there are literally dozens of men with backpacks roaming the areas of the bombings. The photos in the above link will bear this out.

The lock down of Watertown and Boston proper, with the FBI, SWAT Teams, and Special Forces and local police belies the fact that a wounded, bleeding and frightened 19 year old boy could be the focus of such a massive militarized turnout. If I remember correctly, NO part of any city in Los Angeles was locked down while authorities pursued cop killer Dorner. This lock down of Boston for hours was premeditated to instill fear and "terror," as the media adoringly calls this, and in so doing, enacts immediate and total obedience from the public. It was a very successful dry run of Martial Law.

Now let’s define our terms:

Terror, from French terreur, from Latin terror meaning "great fear", a noun derived from the Latin verb terrere meaning "to frighten",[1] is a policy of political repression and violence intended to subdue political opposition. The term was first used for the Reign of Terror imposed by the Jacobins during the French Revolution.[2][3] Before the advent of modern terrorism, the term "terrorism" in the English language was sometimes used interchangeable with terror. The modern definition of terrorism refers to criminal or illegal acts of violence at randomly chosen targets, in an effort to raise fear. It is practiced by extremist groups with a limited political base or parties on the weaker side in asymmetric warfare. Terror on the other hand is practiced by governments and law enforcement officials, usually within the legal framework of the state. (Wikipedia)

As our police become more militarized, they will be practicing their “legal” brand of terrorism more and more. Under U.S. law, authorities have 72 hours after Tsarnaev's arrest to file a criminal complaint against him. When Immediately after Dzhokhar’s capture, federal prosecutors stirred controversy in legal circles by refusing to grant Dzhokhar his Miranda rights against self-incrimination, citing public safety concerns. What public safety concerns??? He’s been caught, he’s injured, what the hell else can he do? "He is not going to be read the Miranda warnings," ABC News Senior Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas said Sunday. "They are going to use the Public Safety Exception, and dive in without advising him of his right to remain silent. They are taking this extraordinary step because there could be an imminent threat still out there. ... There's deep, deep concern about the amount of ammunition, guns and working bombs these men had." (Dylan Stableford, The Lookout)

Even if there are other explosions out there waiting to happen, they have nothing to do with reading this man his Miranda rights. I firmly believe that he will “die” in hospital; if not, they will charge him with using “weapons of mass destruction” which carries the death penalty. Either way, he will die before he can speak his mind.

A weapon of mass destruction (WMD) is a weapon that can kill and bring significant harm to a large number of humans (and other life forms) and/or cause great damage to man-made structures (e.g. buildings), natural structures (e.g. mountains), or the biosphere in general. The scope and application of the term has evolved and been disputed, often signifying more politically than technically. Coined in reference to aerial bombing with chemical explosives, it has come to distinguish large-scale weaponry of other technologies, such as chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear. This differentiates the term from more technical ones such as chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear weapons (CBRN). (Wikipedia)

The fact that they are focusing all attention and resources on this one, young man, shows the great length they are going to prevent the public from realizing the true source of the bombings. These psyops will continue, jerking people out of their dazed and shallow realities and forcing them to cower in fear, waiting for the next attack.

   As the Elites, Illuminati, Freemason, Jews or whatever you want to call them, keep up these attacks, distorting our commonly shared perception of reality, more and more laws will be enacted to restrict our freedoms and bring a total dictatorship ever closer to the only reality we will one day all share. And as the “See something, say something” ad campaigns permeate our subconscious, more people will be innocently convicted and hauled away without trial or justice. Neighbor against neighbor, children against parents and husbands against wives until we can do nothing but grovel hysterically. And when they finally come for us, we will be glad.
