It Might Be a Conspiracy…BUT it All Went Wrong

Could it have been "the October Surprise" that didn't work? Crazy as it might sound at this late date in December, could there have really been an October Surprise planned to insure the re-election of Obama to the Presidency?

Target Iran: America and Israel to Officially Unleash MEK Terrorist Cult

SIBEL EDMONDS: Let It Cut Both Ways-US Foreign Aid & State...

In June 2010 our rights and liberties suffered a major setback.

Ms. Clinton Says Iran Headed For Military Dictatorship

Well may Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warn students in Qatar that “Iran is moving toward a military dictatorship.” She is, after all, an authority on the subject, representing a country where the Pentagon has long been ascendant. Her comment was followed up by Robert Gibbs, President Obama’s press secretary, who, at a February 16th news conference refused to deny the possibility of the U.S. taking military action against Iran, stating, “I wouldn’t rule out anything.”
