The Truth About the National Defense Authorization Act

Orwellian Nightmare Law Empowers Cover-Ups


Honor - Where Did it Go ?

by Gordon Duff,  Senior Editor


Every year we pass a National Defense Authorization Act.  Each year, it has something hidden in it, secret tax breaks for big party contributors, pork barrel projects but this year we have gone too far. 

This year’s bill officially recreates the equivalent of the East German or North Korean police state here at home, as usual, “to protect us from terrorism.”

Here, Senator Rand Paul makes it clear as day as does Senator John McCain.  It is quite obvious, John McCain has totally broken with reality.   Problem is, he stands here with the majority.  What does this tell you?

I want protection from our own government, me and, thus far, about 250 million other Americans.  We have seen what they can do, and many of us know they are willing to go much further, we don’t just think it, we know it and we know why.

Trust Us - We Will Take Care of Everything - You Don't Need a Constitution Anymore - You Have Us

The Senate, all Republicans and too many key Democrats are pushing through the most insane legislation in our history, at a time when America hasn’t had a functioning Supreme Court for years.

The law, how do we describe it, is very clear.

It creates a permanent state of martial law in the United States, unlimited wire tapping, unlimited warrant-less searches, “stop, search and question” checkpoints at state borders, no more right to legal counsel.

It also authorizes torture, it authorizes transfer and detention of American citizens at “offshore” prisons, Europe, Africa, who knows?

Why?  Why now?  What is driving this, is this really about terrorism, is America facing a massive terrorist threat despite all reports to the contrary including estimates by CIA Director Leon Panetta that Al Qaeda may be down to less than 12 members?

There are, of course, those who believe there never has been an “Al Qaeda.”  The BBC almost imploded when this piece was released and, of course, later suppressed:

Veterans Today - We Will Not Be Silent - What About You?

Let’s be clear.  There is a threat, not against America but against our politicians.

The threat is that if they don’t bow down to special interests by protecting Wall Street from “Occupy” or by attacking Iran though “proof” of Iran’s weapons programs has again been “debunked,” a flood of what used to be illegal cash will go to their opponents.

Nobody wants to leave their seat on the “gravy train.”

If a very real version of “Arab Spring” comes to America and the people get a real whiff of democracy, the American people will set on their politicians like ravaging dogs.

After watching government after government fall, only starting with the Middle East, including a very viable threat against the current ultra-nationalist military dictatorship in Israel..

Oh, you didn’t know Israel was a military dictatorship and that 500,000 Israeli Jews are in the streets demanding Netanyahu’s ouster?  We call this “censorship.”

Why are Jews leaving Israel and being replaced with Russian non-Jews?  Why is Israel aligning itself away from the United States and becoming closer and closer to Russia each day?

The Ruling Class Wants Direct Access to Our Military - To Use it Here!!

This has nothing to do with the Jewish people, its geopolitics, its preparing for the global financial meltdown and quite perhaps a global Armageddon as well.  However, the realignments have nothing to do with people or politics.

The folks at “Occupy” have it right, 100%, its about a global ruling class and the spats every now and then between power groups over the remains of what is left of the rest of us.

They are fighting over our bones and we are stupid enough to do the fighting for them.

You may have heard something about Egypt and Syria but, chances are, you were too busy watching Libya to realize that that the entirety of the world has changed in the past 3 months.

Europe is broke, utterly defenseless and the European Union is coming apart.  NATO will die with it.

Russia is being reassembled under Putin, with “former republics,” one after the other rejoining a new Soviet Union, this time one with more money, more efficiently run and very very angry at the United States.

America is surrounded, Mexico in upheaval to the south, Canada sick of us to the north, Europe dismembered as an economic and military unit.

France, Britain and Italy were overwhelmed by the very minor UN operation in Libya.  Any  real enemy and they would fail entirely.

Italy and Greece just had groups of “international bankers” walk in and appoint new heads of state, no election, both new national leaders former executives of Goldman Sachs, the most corrupt and predatory financial organization on earth.

This is why America is pushing through what I would like to call “stealth legislation” that totally abrogates our constitution.  There is nothing “stealth” about it, it is being done in plain sight.


Where Did The Money You Owe Go? - You Don't Really Want to Know

The idea of the military running America is a joke.  Fighting in Iraq, after years of stalemate, a war planned by morons, was reached by paying off the enemy and agreeing to keep ourselves locked up on our own bases like prisoners of war.

By that standard, 48,000 American troops are POWs in Iraq, a war that goes into the “loss” column like none other.  Vietnam was a “big win” in comparison.

Nothing whatsoever came of Iraq other than 6000 dead, 400,000 wounded and disabled, 2 million Iraqis dead and 3 trillion dollars of debt.

We left behind a country in total chaos that will hate us until the end of time, perhaps longer.

Do we want to discuss Afghanistan?  What have we done there?  Our ally for 65 years, Pakistan, hates us now.  Why?

Our Afghan allies, almost all members of the Taliban, tricked us into attacking our own ally, and not for the first time.  Afghanistan hates us, like no other nation on earth but is also dependent on us as well.  Why?

Afghanistan produces $80 billion in heroin, not opium, that was the past.  They produce heroin.  Their cut is around $2 billion, enough to enrich warlords across the country.  Who gets the rest?  We checked.  400 members of congress get million in drug money laundered through offshore corporation as “soft money contributions.” 

“Fat envelopes” to go Pentagon officials who “look the other way” and the rest goes to the CIA and its bankers.  As to who they are, they are, we could simplify things and call them “Wall Street.”

They want protection and the new Defense Authorization Act will give them that and more, much more.

They Aren't Afraid of Terrorists - They Are Afraid of What We Are Going To Do To Them When We Find Out What They Have Really Done To Us.

Best of all, America’s military during its worst failures, under its worst management, facing massive cutbacks, is now maneuvering itself to take over police powers inside the United States.  Why?

The “War on Terror” is over.  Did we win or lose?  Neither, we made the whole thing up, invented it as a cheap replacement for the Cold War.  Who has that power?

Ever hear of the “Military, Industrial Complex?”  Add huge international drug cartels, the Israel lobby and Wall Street to it and you have all the power in the world and all the bad intentions with it.

What do they want?  I can tell you what they don’t want.

The don’t want free elections, they don’t want an America with a constitutional government, they don’t want peace and plenty, they don’t want “civilians” and “intellectuals” telling them what to do.

They don’t get along well with lawyers and courts and things like “justice,” words that mean nothing to them but represent “freedom” and “liberty” to the rest of us who don’t seem to matter a hill of beans anymore.


They Are Always Conspiring

There is always a conspiracy somewhere.  After all, America has 880,000 people in the military, government and industry with “top secret” security clearances.  As many as half of these are in the private sector.

What do they do, the private ones, any of them?  I can tell you.  We don’t know and never will but if you did know you would stop it immediately.

That’s the whole reason for secrecy.

Did you think it was about spying?


F-35 Technology Stolen - As It Usually Is

American nuclear secrets, battle plans, space technology and such has been peddled around the world on an open market for so many years it is a joke.  Here is a classic.

We spent $300,000,000,000 developing the F 35 Joint Strike Fighter.

Before the first one went into production, 67.9 Tb of data, every plan for every aspect of the system from metalurgy to stealth to weapons systems was stolen and sold.

India, China and Russia have the plans, having bought them from Israelis spies who were given security clearances and simply uploaded the whole thing.

Now anyone can build one and be a superpower.  Remember to thank the American taxpayer and the gang at the Pentagon that leaves the “super-secret plans” drawers open when “dual citizens” are on the prowl.

Now our “air superiority” for the next 40 years is gone, as is $300 billion in research and development and potential enemies have moved forward 3 generations in technology overnight.  You didn’t hear it?  Want to see the Chinese version?

YouTube - Veterans Today -

Jonathan Pollard - Game Over - Kind Of

Every bit of technology you see here is American.  Duplicating the engines will take a bit longer so the Chinese borrowed Russian engines to test their new American technology which they bought from certain Israeli/American defense specialists at bargain basement prices.

There was no investigation nor will there ever be one.  Jonathan Pollard was the last Israeli spy the US was allowed to arrest and he turned over the names of every CIA intelligence asset, all our nuclear codes, our war plans, our weapons systems to Russia.

This is why he is doing life in prison and still, members of congress are trying to get him released, many of the same members of congress who are now trying to pass the new “no more America” law.

Why? Simple.  They are being bribed or blackmailed.  What can you give a congressman, someone who has had an inside track on theft for years?  Here’s one for you.  You offer them organ transplants for them or any member of their family. 

This is just one of the things put on the table, confirmed, very confirmed.  They also get enough money to stay in office for life, protection against prosecution and a guarantee that no scandals will ever reach the press.

Who has this kind of power?  You don’t know?


Lee Wanta - Ronald Reagan National Security Director

Why does the government want the ability to arrest any American that they choose to label a “terror suspect?”  What is a terror suspect?  I have 4 friends accused of terror crimes.  I used to work for the Reagan Administration in an unspecified capacity.

Other friends did as well.  Lee Wanta, who was imprisoned served as President Reagan’s Director of National Intelligence.  He was sent to prison for siding with President Reagan against the wishes of the Bush family.

The issue was money.  Wanta sided with America and, though he spent his life working for the President of the United States and the CIA, went to prison without any real trial at all.

Anther friend, a close friend, former member of Congress, good friend to President Reagan, former US Ambassador to the United Nations was charged with 52 counts of terrorism.

His crime?  He privately submitted “slam dunk” proof to the President of the United States that information that was leading the United States into invading Iraq was false.

Another friend, Director of Intelligence for a major ally, a nuclear power, was put on a “terrorist list” for publicly announcing that the 9/11 attacks were performed with full complicity of the Bush administration. 

He can prove it as can so many more.  They will never be asked. 

He was, at one time, perhaps the most valuable friend the US had.  Then he decided to place honor above all else.  That make him a “terrorist.”

Others around me have been put under house arrest, one locked in a mental hospital, others silenced or worse.  Why?

These were people with high security classification who learned of plots against America by other Americans and tried to stop them.

Some day a memorial will be built to such people.  Will it have more names than the Vietnam Wall?


Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested for murdering President John F. Kennedy.  Recent research done by Dr. James Fetzer of the University of Minnesota, which includes an analysis of the confession of former Watergate figure and top CIA operative Howard Hunt, debunks the Oswald theory.

So does physics, witness statements and years of credible research.  Nobody really has taken the “Oswald theory” seriously since congress officially cast it aside in 1975.  Oh, you didn’t know?

$2 billion in scanner profits and great newspaper sales as well

Oswald, when arrested said:  “I am just a patsy.”

YouTube - Veterans Today -

A “patsy” is someone conveniently available, often carefully selected and groomed, some we are told are subjected to “mind control” or simply drugs and hypnosis, people used as tools so powerful groups can commit acts of terror, assassinations and have someone to blame.

A “patsy” has to be silenced.

Oswald was killed by Jack Ruby who was then sequestered and silenced.

The Detroit “crotch bomber,” Abdullah Mohammed was a “patsy” as was the “Times Square Fizzler.”  Their phony terror attacks were carefully timed to news cycles and funding authorizations.

The supposed 9/11 hijackers, the 19 who proved invisible to airport cameras, 10 of whom claim they are still alive despite a fiery death, were patsies.

They had to be sequestered, drugged, intimidated and manipulated in order to provide the useful “service” that we seem to so often need, the carefully timed terror threat or news story, like so many of the Osama bin Laden videos we were subjected to after his untimely death in 2001.

Oh, you didn’t know?  There is no more secure patsy than one already dead.

First "official" bin Laden death photo released to congress quickly debunked

When you are done with him, you simply have to pretend to kill him again, throw his non-existent body into the sea and then kill off anyone who might rat you out in a series of helicopter crashes. 

Now we want to take it a step further, no more risks of trials and lawyers, no more embarrassing Arab hijackers on talk shows proving they aren’t as dead as they are supposed to be.


America has never been as militarily weak as we are now.  Last week, Germany tried to sell a few billion in bonds and had few buyers.  They have the world’s highest credit rating.  The lesson?  If America went to war, it would be unable to borrow money to support our military because our ability to market treasuries, how we finance debt, is at an end.  If Germany can’t borrow, we can’t.

Our primary NATO allies are even broker than we are, have no money even for ammunition.  We stand alone, not just because, as with Bush, we are a pariah state fighting an aggressive war for drugs, oil and Israel but because we no longer have the economic capacity to support military power.

Our military, as we know it is temporary.  It will be going away, the process has already begun.

Our only hope for new wars and new wars are the only hope that some have, that “some” being the ruling class that is pushing the new Defense Authorization Act forward, with its martial law provisions, are based on our ability to fool the world into believing America has been attacked.

Our plan, as with 9/11, is to attack ourselves.  Britain did it on 7/7.  Britain was caught, a jury decided it but you will never read it, not in any newspaper you will be able to buy without a transaction that looks like a drug deal.

For those who don’t know, the proof on the 9/11 conspiracy, Israel’s part, the Pentagon missile, all of it has leaked onto the internet and into some of the world’s press.  You may learn about it next week or next year but you will learn about it.

“They” don’t want you  to ever be able to find out the truth again and this is what this bill is about.  America won’t be able to go to China and Japan and ask for billions, even trillions of dollars to invade Iran or fight Russia, where we are really heading unless you haven’t been paying attention, without being able to claim that terrorists used a nuclear weapon to attack an American city.

We’ve all been hearing the horror stories about economic collapse.  With that collapse goes all military power as well.  Even China can collapse, they are sitting on the edge themselves.  What the ability to stage terror attacks, even nuclear false flag terrorism can do is act as a giant “reset” button.  Borrowing, if anything is left, is one ploy but, as things stand, debt repudiation and restructuring of currencies, that New World Order we hear about, control of governments, control of economies, centralized control of money and all resources becomes an “easy sell.”

Maybe it won’t be a big bomb, only a hundred thousand dead or so.  Maybe “they” have something else in mind, 9/11 was certainly dramatic, it will be hard to top.

The only way that “they” can maintain “damage control” over a story like this with government credibility totally non-existent is to use martial law to jail the phony terrorists, to “disappear” investigative journalists, to “pull the plug” on the internet, it is all heading one way.

It is all part of the same thing.

Just hope you and yours don’t live close to “ground zero” when the “Masters of the Universe,” the puppeteers pulling John McCain’s strings decide to push the button.

    Hi all, I just got through reading this. I do not normally go along with “conspiracy theories” as there are always some obscure details and/or loopholes in the story. Nevertheless, if this is indeed all the case why can’t we stop it? I mean, there is one severe flaw in the “mastermind” plan and that is us. If we don’t vote for people that are hooked in then it can’t work right? I have been wondering why we, as a people, don’t create a pledge or something that determines who even has a chance of being voted for. I made one here: although it probably isn’t as detailed or formal as it should be.

    My point is that if we force politicians to conform to our rules, such as being transparent with funds and things of that nature, or they don’t get voted for, then it’s really simple. Well, maybe not simple, but it at least attempts to wrangle some control back into our hands.

    A stunning factual analysis of America´s woes, how they have been generated and by whom. Thanks Gordon. It brought to my mind what Thomas Jefferson has been so foresighted to warn us about:

    “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” –
    Thomas Jefferson

    Nobody can call him anti-Semite. He passed on-signed the bill that gave the Jews civil rights, because he was a true DEMOCRAT.

    He didn’t stop there though, he went on: “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing
    power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.

    —Thomas Jefferson, 1802

    “Paper is poverty,… it is only the ghost of money, and not money itself.” –Thomas Jefferson to Edward Carrington, 1788.

    “Experience has proved to us that a dollar of silver disappears for every dollar of paper emitted.” -Thomas Jefferson to James Monroe, 1791.

    “The trifling economy of paper, as a cheaper medium, or its convenience for transmission, weighs nothing in opposition to the advantages of the precious metals… it is liable to be abused, has been, is, and forever will be abused, in every country in which it is permitted.”–Thomas Jefferson to John W. Eppes, 1813. (read more at

    From any focus point, I try to look at the dire situation the USA is in, which has been cleverly-Machiavelliously engineered to hijack the nation and ALL its institutions, the bottom line would be: Control of the MEDIA, the MONEY and the FELONIOUS-TRAITORS POLITICIANS.

    Now they want direct control on the PENTAGON too.

    A good article Gordon, and timely.

    During WWII, Britain and Canada started atom bomb development in southern BC. When the US found out about the bomb, they demanded it be moved to the USA for ‘improved’ security. Russian spies penetrated the defenses within weeks and shortly after WWII detonated their own. This theft of technology has been going on for a very long time.

    A little story about a Private Security Firm that sprang up thanks to the 9/11 theatrics; Out of the 480+ employees a handful were Supervisors, some of these supervisors were females with the occasional one having some military background. A couple others had, not only criminal records, but were also salaried. These 3 female supervisors (that I knew of) not only drew salaries but also were “punching” the clock. A supervisor making around 70k for overseeing the NAVY Sea yard (which housed some Nuclear Subs) was also clocking in for an additional 90 hours every 2 weeks (with the occasional OT) which brought her to roughly 178k a year. DHS paid this company for the contracts and the taxpayer was on the hook for this.

    This was a common thing and still is with most firms. Just so you know how serious DHS is about protecting US installations and Federal buildings…Criminals and Thieves carrying 9mm sidearms and maybe a handful had actual training (Military/Law Enforcement) but the Majority went to a Range and qualified by shooting a piece of Paper!!! It was okay if you failed, you got 3 chances….

    You want protection, plan on providing it yourself. Half of these people are friends of friends who drop a gun or turn it sideways while running out the door…

    The American People have been fleeced at almost every turn, time to rub your eyes and wake up gang.

    “Why? Why now? What is driving this, is this really about terrorism..?”

    Could the timing have anything to do with imminent worldwide financial collapse? The economies of the world all have a date with destiny. It has been temporarily forestalled by the hyper-inflationary actions of the loathsome Federal Reserve and European central banks but a dark day of reckoning is coming soon. It is a mathematical certainty.

    And let’s face it. The whole purpose of the police and military is to protect the banksters and politicians from the wrath of the people once they wake up and discover how totally and ruthlessly they’ve been fvcked.

    So they’ve got their FEMA concentration camps ready. They’ve got a 20,000 man combat brigade deployed on American soil and ready for crowd control duty (M16’s on full auto?) and gun confiscation. They have their NSA fusion centers keeping track of all us malcontents who know the truth about 9/11.

    And now they have S-1867 which ‘legitimizes’ what they are about to do.

    Meanwhile the sheeple are duking it out in the aisles of Walmart over two dollar waffle makers made by Chinese slave labor. Please tell me this is all a bad dream.

    @ Dave-O

    “…The deal will include what Gordon mentions above and the Canadian Government having full assess to every Americans government files and visa versa.”

    I think that what you meant was “…full access…”

    Or did you mean what you typed — that the citizens of both the US and Canada are expected to bend over and take it, without complaint or opposition?

  16. kelli  December 2, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    Oh my god, Foo you and I were thinking alike on this. I was wondering if someone is as sarcastic as I am. It reminds me of a cartoon where the tyrant orders his minion to shoot the criminal,so the minion shrugs his shoulders and shoots the tyrant. Our military will the authority to round up the true perpetrators of 9/11 and it ain’t AlQueda!

  17. Dave-O  December 2, 2011 at 11:09 am

    This upcoming week December 7, 2011 Obama will meet with the Canadian Prime Minister to sign the Security Perimeter Deal which is the biggest move towards the North American Union since 9/11.

    You won’t find any mention about it anywhere on Obama doesn’t want the gun toting American bible thumping hillbillies protecting the American way of life. The deal will include what Gordon mentions above and the Canadian Government having full assess to every Americans government files and visa versa.

  18. Brian  December 2, 2011 at 8:36 am

    Excerpts from an article:

    The bill was drafted in secret by Senators Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and John McCain (R-Ariz.), before being passed in a closed-door committee meeting without any kind of hearing, the ACLU added.

    This means Americans could be declared domestic terrorists and thrown in a military brig with no recourse whatsoever.

    Given that the Department of Homeland Security has characterized behavior such as buying gold, owning guns, using a watch or binoculars, donating to charity, using the telephone or email to find information, using cash, and other instances of mundane behavior as potential indicators of domestic terrorism, such a provision would be wide open to abuse, critics say.

    Brian: Perhaps AIPAC pushed this legislation. After the Mossad does a nuclear false flag in the United States this legislation if passed will allow AIPAC through its blackmailed stooge Obama to toss writers and people from the comment section at VT and elsewhere who blame the Mossad for the terrorist attack into prison. They can make things up or say we are aiding the Muslim terrorists by blaming the Mossad.

    The russian resurgence is part and parcel of bankster games and the “bible prophesy” crap of Armaggedon; it will happrn but has nada to do with twisted bible bunk; we been had: people have been conquered by TV/radio repitition. folks who can see it too few, too weak.
    The only revenge/fun comes when the plotters must live in the shit and ash of their arrogant creation, with no producers left to steal from.

  20. foo  December 2, 2011 at 5:55 am

    One can always tell when he’s written good satire: People take it seriously.

    On the other hand, it does give us the opportunity to force the 9/11 Truth issue. Something in the realm of, “As a 9/11 Truther, I commend the Congress for finally acknowledging…”

    Play it straight, and restrain yourself from breaking out into uncontrollable giggles. When they correct you, express confusion, as in “You mean that they don’t want the real culprits to face justice?”

    If you go in with outrage, they will screen you out or insult you and cut you off. Instead, you act naive and innocent; you don’t let them suspect that you’re pulling their leg.

    Have fun with it. And, BTW, Trudy, you don’t have to be on drugs to do so.

    The EU countries will not be buying any weapons from the US any time soon nor will they be involved in any new wars. So I believe that America’s interest in the EU is very low and will remain so for decades.

    I have been watching Hillary Clinton over the last couple of months and she looks like she’s having one long continuous bad hair day – its like she going through the motions but she does not believe a word of what she is saying. I feel sorry for Hillary because she is an intelligent woman.

    I visited the US and Canada for 19 days recently and I have to say that the airport security people were very efficient and also very friendly and I was travelling with the traveller from hell – too much checkin luggage, didn’t want to pay for excess luggage, too much hand luggage, loads of containers with liquids, she didn’t communicate very well with officials and she complained about the airports.

    The new security laws in the US are preparation for something and I do not believe that it is about business economics because the US Government is good at fudging numbers. A couple of months ago when the jobs numbers were over 100,000 apparently one company Verison had people on strike and when 28,000 of them returned to work they were added back onto the payroll as new employes and this added to the 100,000.

  22. NavyBrat  December 2, 2011 at 4:49 am

    As much as I would like to agree with you, any ” person who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored those responsible for those attacks” could be prosecuted under existing laws, so why the need to put the country under military law to do this?
    This is like the lambs being led to the slaughter thinking that perhaps they are being led to greener pastures.
    This sort of thinking led us to where we are today.

    “(1) A person who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored those responsible for those attacks.)

    I find it most distressing that no one seems to “get” the true intent of this bill. We 9/11 Truthers are not the actual targets of this section.

    Read this section again. It is directed at the people who really pulled off 9/11. Congress has opened the door for the arrests of the officials in the US government and in the various neocon think tanks.

    Let us thank and praise Congress for giving us this long-awaited opportunity to press for 9/11 Justice!

    Let us go public with our gratitude. Call in to radio talk shows, write letters to the editor, email the congress critters themselves.

  25. Jim  December 1, 2011 at 9:45 pm

    Yes, definitely one of the best articles ever to appear on VT or anywhere else. Senior Editor Gordon Duff cuts through the political BS and concocted storylines of these traitors like a red hot knife through butter. And he is 100% on the mark with his assertion that these professional career politicians are pushing this nazi crap to protect THEIR money supply and continued power.

    These Senators and Representatives are the lowest of the low, they have sold their souls for money and power and then use that power to beat down the public in order to appease and bootlick their masters who are the pedophile drug dealers at the head of the international syndicate, some call the “octopus”.

    These folks are apparently so totally compromised by bribes (“grease”), absurd salaries and benefits, sexual perversions that most of the time they don’t even need to be blackmailed anymore or even mindkontrolled. One of the Senators behind this is now allegedly being blackmailed, ie has gotten the message that his perversion will get wide play in the major network media if he doesn’t “take care of business” (to his ruin), thus he is pushing hard for the bill with his southern drawl while also drooling at the same time too (too much drug use at night?). Another is called the “manchurian candidate” by high level insiders because of his little stay in a Hanoi hotel where he was visited by top Russian and Chinese mindkontrol experts.

    Allegedly though he didn’t require much work or even need to be “bagged” since he was so willing to quickly side with his captors and after all dadda was an admir. so he deserved special treatment? And of course he has a few pretty big skeletons in the closet like the “keating 5” schtick and favors due a very large liquor syndicate, allegedly, folks who were supposedly committed to the belief “never again” but have been the chief perps of this nazi/stasi stuff of the New American Gestapo (homeland insecurity and its very loving fusion centers–all here to keep us all warm and fuzzy and safe from terrible terrorists which are supposedly on the loose everywhere hiding under every rock).

    If these folks were really serious about stopping int’l terrorist acts against the US, they should stop providing training, supports and high powered weapons tio the mexican cartels (Operation Fast & Furious and other similar long term ops), stop working with these cartels to bring in the drugs for a very big cut, seal the southern border and use whatever means to stop mexican drug trafficking in to the US. This would mean arresting perhaps more than a hundred US officials and wall street banker/money launderers. But heck these folks are partners in crime so of course they would never clean up their own house.

    What these Potomac two steppers inside the beltway are trying to pass in stealth is about as Nazi as it can get. But hey they already pushed through the Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, so this is really just another means of continuing their sociopathy. And parts of the Patriot Act are so secret that Congress and the public is not allowed to know what they state (only a few Congressman and Senators with above top Secret security type clearances know and they are scared to death to talk about it (must be pretty bad, huh, something right out of the movie Soylent Green or such, or perhaps about Fema camps, gas chambers, red, green and blue lines, etc?)

    Whenever these career Constitutional violators and treasonous scum ever talk about the need to pass laws to “keep the public safe” this must be translated as “we need to pass this to keep ourselves from being arrested, jailed and hung for treason by a french revolution type uprising” or “this is necessary to protect our lifetsyles and power”.

    You can bet that certain intel groups have scared these folks to death with such tales that they will be individually targeted by returning vets and civilian gun owners who become disgruntled with them (you can imagine all the “eyes only” top secret memos being “leaked” to these folks to view that claim their only hope for survival from being individually targeted is passage of Section 1034).

    And as many remember, the scare tactic that was used to manipulate Congress was the “veiled threat” that the US and world economies would quickly fail without a bailout being immediately passed in a few days, followed by a martial law declaration that would never be rescinded. And yet three days after the bailout was signed and enacted, Paulson changed his mind where the money was to go and showed everything he said to be a falsity. That whole schtick was high tech blackmail.

    But Congress responded to it again one more time! Now once again the blackmail machine has been started up and the usual threats are perhaps being delivered by the int’l syndicate to its subjects, the career politicians.

    Many of these career politicians have an inner sense the “jig is about up” and the public has had it with their corruption, greed and perversions, and complete lack of concern for maintaining the “rule of law” and the US Constitution and Bill of Rights, or Habeas Corpus (many surveys show this).

    How nuts have these folks become to believe that warrantless sexual groping of airline passengers is okay, kidnapping and torture of suspected terrorists is okay, as well as taking these usually innocent victims to secret black sites and prison ships for warehousing and many to be killed? Answer: nuts beyond words as in criminally insane. We now know that at least half those supposed al quaeda captured and bagged and tagged and taken to black sites were innocent young teenage boys kidnapped and sold to US intel by competing warlords for “bounties”.

    No grandjuries, indictments, no evidence, no cross examination, no attorneys, no warrants and this is what our illustrious criminals inside the beltway want for any US citizen that believes in the rule of law and the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. These criminals traitors want to create a nazi/stasi style police terror state run by an offshore criminal narcotics syndicate that is a death cult and “worships death” (not their own deaths , but everyone elses including us).

    Have these politicians all been mindkontrolled using drugs, the fine arts of human compromise, honey traps, perversions, drugs and high tech psychotronics or that age old standby bribery with favors, money, benefits or secret “grease”? For many of them perhaps bribes and the “washington lifestyle” are enough especially if they are sociopaths and have no capacity to care for the welfare of others (ie no conscience).

    For others these syndicate demands may seem so outrageous, so anti-american that they must be coerced by human compromise ops and high tech mindkontrol. Think that high tech mindkontrol with such capabilities to change behaviors doesn’t exist? Well guess again, there are over 200 classified patents and several unclassified ones which teach such and some experts have leaked information about these, suggesting that it can be very effective in certain controlled situations.

    It almost seems like the folks at the top of the pyramid that control this offshore based syndicate actually want to start another American civil war, but this one would be in every major city and would perhaps result in the balkanization of the USA and its final destruction. After that what would remain (and it wouldn’t be much) could be folded into the new global one world system.

    Highest commendations to Gordon Duff for this very timely and most excellent analysis of this very sad episode in the apparent intentional dismantling of the US Republic by career criminals with no consciences or any allegiance to the US Constitution and Bill of Rights. OATH BREAKERS, traitors and the “enemy within” is what they are and that is how we should refer to them.

    ? More than a few weeks ago, we interviewed bin Laden’s CIA handlers and published.


  27. Jim W. Dean  December 1, 2011 at 9:23 pm

    Now is the time. They are nailing down any openings that can be used to go after them.

    Some good news this week though. The mortgage fraud judge in the Citicorp and BofA case threw out the agreed financial settlement with the SEC.

    My idea for Financial Terrorism statues does not seem to be going over well. I think it’s the penalties and the treatment they get.

    Protecting Israel from our eventual and inevitable realization that 9/11 and so much more originated there…..

    there is nothing they won’ t do

  30. Debbie Menon  December 1, 2011 at 8:36 pm

    Great piece Gordon. Several friends have written to me about this. “Discouraged” doesn’t begin to sum up how they are feeling.

  31. RK  December 1, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    Man, Gordon, as someone who has disagreed with some things you said… I just want to say that you nailed it on this one.

    This is the best synopsis that I have seen about the entire situation in America, and worldwide.

    I registered just for this. Kudos to you. This is an absolute must-read, and should be spread far and wide, to anyone that any of us know who are willingly, or unwillingly, turning a blind eye.

    I hate that so many of “us” spend our days circling the same drain, and preaching to the choir.

    We need to challenge ourselves right now, to break through in a non-condescending way… for our friends, our kids, or families, our grandkids. They are depending on us, even if they don’t yet know it.

    A tip of my glass to you, brother

    According to section 1031 of the legislation:

    “Congress affirms that the authority of the President to use all necessary and appropriate force pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force includes the authority for the Armed Forces of the United States to detain covered persons pending disposition under the law of war.”

    With “covered persons” are defined as:

    (1) A person who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001, or harbored those responsible for those attacks.

    (2) A person who was a part of or substantially supported al-Qaeda, the Taliban, or associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners, including any person who has committed a belligerent act or has directly supported such hostilities in aid of such enemy forces

    Given the bizarre (under the circumstances) wording of paragraph (1), there’s only one context in which this legislation makes any “sense”:

    This legislation is clearly aimed at the 9/11 truth movement. I suspect our Jewish supremacist Masters are worried that the “Occupy Wall St.” movement might take up the cause of 9/11 truth, and that scares the hell out of them. That will simply not be allowed.

    9/11 truthers have already been labeled as “anti-semites”, “extremists” that may be “prone to violence” by the Weisenthal Center and by Cass Sunstein et al. According to Michael Chertoff, anyone who refuses to accept at face value the preposterous 9/11 commission report is basically the equivalent of a “holocaust denier”.

    If 9/11 truthers are such kooks and their ideas so outrageous, I wonder why Jewish extremists seem to be so afraid of the 9/11 truth movement?

    Anyway, given that the “official” 9/11 narrative blames “Al Qaeda” (whatever that exactly is) for 9/11, anyone who opines that 9/11 was an inside job, as the evidence clearly shows, could be, and at some point probably will be deemed to be “aiding” the imaginary 9/11 attackers.

    One of Gordon’s best in some time, I’d say. The comments quoting Solzhenitsyn are prophetic, and like the prophets of old our prophets will be destroyed for lifting the veil from evil as Gordon points out. It’s coming here, and the minuscule cabal of evil men who now control our country will do to us what the Bolsheviks and Stalinists did to the Russians.

    Congress is beyond evil when a crime syndicate thug from Detroit like Levin and an enemy collaborator like McCain whose lily-livered cowardice sent American airmen to their deaths in Vietnam can rule the Senate and rescind the Constitution. Candidate Gingrich must be licking his chops at the thought of using these powers.

    The irony is that the first people singled out for internment, torture, and extermination may well be the conservatives who support this grinning apparatchik of the NWO who’s probably been inserted in the race to preside over WW III and our transformation into a police state.

    The graphics alone make it worth checking VT, like that recent photo of a Palestinian toddler lying face down dead in the dirt with his little arms outstretched who a minute before could have been running with his arms outstretched like that with a beaming smile into the arms of his parents.

    Every member of Congress who supports Israel and these wars is guilty of this horror and yet nearly all of them are clamoring for more, more, more, this time in Iran.

    America is heading straight to perdition, regardless of the economy or the military’s depletion, when a monster like McCain who jokes about “bomb, bomb, bomb…bomb, bomb Iran” in front of the cameras can persuade the Senate to pass legislation authorizing the same against Americans.

    Note to the NYC District Atty. and the NY State Atty. General:

    Dear Sir:

    Even if you don’t see it (or pretend to not see it), there are signs that the Russians and Chinese are starting to see it. I am of course referring to the criminal insanity of our Masters and their obvious genocidal/suicidal gamble for complete world domination and control.

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I feel I have a moral and civic duty to inform you that the Russians are building – or have already built – a massive bomb shelter under Moscow. What do the Russians know that you don’t know, Mr. District Atty.?

    Please allow me to tell you: They know that the “people” you’re protecting are leading the world to a nuclear cataclysm. They know that the “people” you’re protecting are not only criminally insane and evil beyond words, but have also painted themselves into a corner. That’s what they know and you don’t.

    You may have temporarily ingratiated yourself to your political overlords by not doing your duty to investigate 9/11, but that won’t stop the nuclear missiles coming your way. You see, although I don’t know which U.S. cities will be hit, I do know that your city, NY City, will be one of them.

    I wonder, will you be sitting in your office when that fateful day finally arrives? Or will you be at home, getting vaporized together with your family? When that day finally comes when our Masters push too far, and the missiles fly, and you have 20 minutes to live, what will your final thoughts be? Will it have all been worth it?

  35. NavyBrat  December 1, 2011 at 4:50 pm

    Thanks for this Gordon.
    It summarizes what I’ve been thinking for years, beginning with JFK, “Catch 22”, Al McCoy’s “Politics of Heroin in SE Asia”.

    I was briefly fooled by the Watergate theatrics, only to be brought back to reality with the assassinations of Pope JP1, John Lennon, Ronald Reagan (almost), Harry Chapin and Bob Marley.

    Both Chapin and Marley were very politically active.

    By the summer of 2001 I was knew something like 9-11 was going to happen, re-enforced by an article written by Lyndon Larouche in July, when he declared that due to the collapsing financial markets and “a bunch of geo-political crazies in Washington DC trying to start a ME war”, the US would be at war and/or in a state of finacial collapse by the end of 2001.

    What ever you may think of Larouche, call him correct on that one..

    For what it’s worth – a couple of nights ago I had a dream that St.Louis MO. had been 9-11’d.
    Let’s pray it was only a dream ….

    Sure, it all sounds “peach keen” but what does McCain (and his fellow terrorism mongers) define as “pose a threat to security”? Do I pose a threat because I think he’s a war monger?
    It reminds me of when Clinton started redefining English for us with “I did not sleep with that woman, Monica Lewinski” and continues with O’Bummer’s definition of “transparency”.

  38. larrybrayboy  December 1, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    You meant Jack Rubenstein didn’t you?

    Gordon several weeks back you mentioned that hard evidence linking bin laden to the CIA would emerge
    in the next week did it? and if so where?
