On the Alex Jones Show on February 10th, Lyndon LaRouche struck a raw nerve when he made the point that all of the current Republican candidates for President pose a threat to civilization if they were to be elected. Obama, clearly, is no alternative.

Wayne Madsen Reports on Alex Jones Show: Santorum’s Strange Ties to Sandusky / Penn State Child Molestation Scandal
Alex talks with investigative journalist Wayne Madsen about the situation in the Persian Gulf. Madsen has written numerous articles for the alternative and so-called mainstream press, including the Miami Herald, Houston Chronicle, Philadelphia Inquirer and others. Madsen edits and publishes the Wayne Madsen Report.
Wayne Madsen is chasing a story (he actually practices real journalism) that might indicate Rick Santorum has peripheral involvement in the child molestation scandal at Penn State. Apparently Santorum’s potential involvement is through a program that placed wayward kids in a position to work for congressmen as pages and such. Also, there was apparently a man who helped Santorum start the Young Republicans organization at Penn State University in the late 70s, who was a caught soliciting a young black child.
Resolved: The World Hates Us For Our Freedom!
While written before the dasterdly Senate vote, Jim Kirwin’s analysis is excellent and should be read by all.

WE LET THE CONSTITUTION BE DESTROYED!
Thus reported the Washington Post already in 2002.
The war on terror has no doubt had unintended consequences onAmerican freedom. But recent talk has escalated the already prevalent fears of a police state, and the story is indeed compelling. When the best of the liberal leftists and the best of the conspiracy theorists agree, you know it’s at least going to be interesting.Today Alex Jones updated his promotion of the ACLU’s monitoring of Senate Bill 1867, the National Defense Authorization Act. The ACLU reported already last Wednesday, The bill itself specifically says that
“The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States.”
This is the very language Amash says is misleading:
“Note that it does not preclude U.S. citizens from being detained indefinitely, without charge or trial, it simply makes such detention discretionary.”
After reading the text of the bill, I believe Amash is essentially correct. The two sections of the 680-page bill which have drawn all the attention are 1031 and 1032. Section 1031 gives “authorization”for detention, and 1032 gives the “requirement for military custody.”The special exemption for U.S. citizens is under section 1032, and specifically says it refers to “this section.”
This means it does not apply to the previous section in which lies an abuse just as egregious-the “authorization” to detain all “covered persons” in “disposition” which includes, Detention under the law of war without trial until the end of the hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force.-Sec.1031(c) (1) There is no exemption for U.S. citizens in this section.
This threat to our liberties-while it could be defended as only pertaining explicitly to 9-11 type terrorists is definitely an expansion of the Federal police and military power into the civilian life of the U.S. It is dangerous, and should be opposed on principle. Further, the bill was crafted secretly without hearing or debate by a liberal Democrat, Carl Levin, along with John McCain, and purports to besimply a Defense spending bill. Deep in its behemoth 680 pages lies this attackon civil liberties. Sen. Lindsey Graham bragged it will
“basically say in law for the first time that the homeland is part of the battlefield.”
Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) seconded,
“America is part of the battlefield.”
But if America is declared a battle zone, then the rules of war apply in this land. This means de facto that some form of martial law applies.This means, as WaPo said at the beginning of this article, that there’s an alternate system-and perhaps it can apply to any of us. This has been going on already since 2001:” (1) “I am sometimes baffled by how quickly many people quickly assume that because they were not personally named in some piece of legislation, that somehow the provisions of that legislation do not and could not apply to them.
Having spent a great deal of time over the years dissecting changes to code & title and the ever popular “redefinition ofterms” used to change the entire common understanding of what a word or phrase means within these tortured constructs called legislation, I knowbetter. My recent article on S.1867 elicited comments to the effect that a few commenters’ had read the bill and that I was simply being inflammatory and emotional. Yes, of course. That must be it. Lest anyone forget: The insidious Patriot Act followed by
The Security Enhancement Act of 2003,
the infamous Military Commissions Act 2006,
followed by the John Warner Defense Authorization Act 2007 and,
which called for the suspension of habeas corpus (4th Amendmentdue process)
all of which gave the president the power to arbitrarily determine on his own, that any one of us was a “domestic terrorist”and going even further to
allow the president to strip us of our citizenship at his discretion with no oversight.
Each of these unconstitutional bills was a piece of the puzzle being constructed incrementally as the Constitution and our rights were being trashed. These anti-American laws were not the only affront to the Constitution, our rights and the advancement of the police state. Now why, you might be asking, would anyone want to give the president of the United States the arbitrary authority to strip any US citizen of their citizenship with noevidence other than his/her belief that one of us is a terrorist, or supports terrorism, without the evidence supporting that contention, or being officially charged with a crime? Most recently, Obama has approved a new program which allows him to authorize the targeted killing of people in foreign countries that the administration decides is a threat (to them) and includes targeting of UScitizens right here at home and abroad.
This program, which is nothing more than sanctified murder, is a violation of international laws which prohibit the killing of individuals outside of armed combat zones. The program will allow the CIA or the military the unchecked authority to murder at will, US citizens and others, around the globe without any evidence of crime, threat or violent activity towards the United States, other than they said so. The intent through all of these assaults on the Constitution andour protected rights has been to find the means to redefine any one of us as anon-military enemy combatant to facilitate the police state. Once redefined, once the definitive description of who and what we are has been altered to suit the government agenda, it is open season on any one of us.” (2) These two articles outline just part of the problem that this pending legislation (it won’t be voted on for awhile yet); presents for all of us. What is clear is that this SECRET piece of legislation was clearly TREASON.The Congress cannot write legislation that criminalizes free speech or thatends (without debate) their congressional duty to represent the public in thisgovernment. We already have a government that has stripped away so many things that it seems impossible to enumerate them all. (3)
But we might want to begin to think about some of what this could mean for the government, and for us: Given that the government now believes that they are living in a State that is suddenly filled withTerrorists, instead of loyal citizens.
There is no precedent for this government to assume the entire nation is potentially criminal, until each of us has proven that we are innocent, each and every time a government thug wants to talk to anyone here: This is unprecedented, and there is absolutely no reason for this behavior. Also we were in business with the US government. That arrangement has gone from paying the government a token percentage of what each of us earns to a whopping 85%^ of everything we make.
And on top of that we must ask government before we are “allowed” to do anything.
At the very least we must STOP paying taxes, because the entitythat is charging us those taxes is no longer legal.
We no longer have a Constitution; ergo we no longer have the Republic, in which this compact was created.
This government is a privately held corporation and not a government:
Officially it’s called United States Incorporated so there is no reason to pay them taxes, since none of us gave them permission to”privatize” us ~ so in reality they cannot and do not own us! They (USI) went to war illegally and unilaterally; then they sought to find a way to by-pass the legal system so that they could detain people without trials, primarily because they have NO EVIDENCE!
This government created the operation on 911 that gave them hypothetical reasons for war, without proof for any of their allegations. Now they want the effects of their WAR-Crime to spill over onto their critics of these global wars for Colonial power, for resources, and for pure unadulterated-greed.
Since that could not be done by using the existing court systemthey have set out to create a whole new and illegal system by SECRETLY writing new regulations and making new rulings without bothering about the actual international rules of war; which include torture and indefinite detention.
On top of all of this they have invented out of a file drawer in CIA headquarters something called Al Qaeda; which has never existed except as a CIA operational group, prior to 911.
Now in concert with Zionist television programming and films, as well as government psy-ops releases they would have the whole world believe that Al Qaeda actually exists:
That is just another lie to keep the public under their collective feather-beds.
But in practical terms what does it mean if we no longer have a functioning congress, legally binding courts, or even the supposed bedrock ofthe Republic-the Constitution?
That means that we don’t have a country anymore.
And since the government is no more ~ why would anyone chose to pay them taxes?
For that matter what does this do to all those corporations which this so-called government has supposedly backed since the founding of the country? On the bright side would be that without a government all corporate charters would be null and void and probably 80 % + of the corporations would be gone over night.
Without a functioning government who then owns all that land that the USG says belongs to them?
The government (USI) is limited to ten-square-miles INSIDE Washington D.C.?
Beyond that ten mile by ten mile square, this “government has no power at all, except whatever people choose to give it?
We have paid for all of it, from police equipment to the roads and bridges to the parks and open range; that all belongs to us, not to them.
The so-called cops are just rented uniforms that no longer come with either badges or names, so they too are corporate-slaves with no power of their own.
If you think that’s extreme then just remember that this government only “rules” by the consent of the governed and that hasn’t happened since Gee W. Bush stole the Tarnished House on 12-12-2000! Like it or not the USA has become just another cheap and backward Empire that has an ego the size of the Colossus of Rhodes (The 8th wonder of the World which has of course disappeared into the mists of history).
Moreover what will happen when someone finally tells our troopson the frontlines that “there is no longer a US Constitution!
No more freedoms (of any kind) exist in America and there is no reason to fight to protect a so-called country that doesn’t exist”?
Here’s what Obama himself has said about this topic! :
“My administration has begun to reshape the standards that apply to insure that they are in-line with the rule of law. We must have clear defensible and lawful standards for those who fall into this category.
We must have a thorough process of periodic review so that any prolonged detention is carefully evaluated and justified. Our goal is justify a legitimate legal framework for the remaining Guantanemo detainees that come out to be transferred. Our goal is not to avoid a legitimate legal framework. In our constitutional system prolonged detention should not be the decision of any one man. If and when we determine that the United States must hold individuals, to keep them from carrying out an act of war, we will do so within a system that involves judicial and congressional oversight. And so going forward my administration will work with congress to develop an appropriate legal regime so that our efforts are consistent withor values and our Constitution.
(The Threat that Obama says makes indefinite -detention necessary) Right now in distant training camps in other cities there are people plotting to take American lives.
That will be the case a year from now, five years from now, and in all probability ten years from now.” Watch the entire tape, because it is literal dynamite! (4)
I wonder if we can get them home before BLACK CHRISTMAS, 2011?

The greatest public health threat can no longer be denied
Paul Joseph Watson & Alex Jones
Monday, November 14, 2011
The fact that the planet is being bombarded with chemicals from high-altitude spraying as part of numerous geoengineering programs being conducted by U.S. government agencies and universities that have been approved with no oversight whatsoever can no longer be denied.
The re-classification of global warming, a highly contentious and often scientifically fraudulent pseudo-science, as a “national security threat” has been exploited by governments as an excuse to play God, green lighting secret experiments on a massive scale that carry innumerable dangers to humans and their environment.
However, now that increasing awareness of geoengineering as a result of the chemtrails phenomenon has propagated widely, authorities are slowly being forced to disclose certain aspects of the program. We are now not far away from full disclosure of the true extent of geoengineering experimentation.
Scientists now admit that vapor trails from aeroplanes are creating “artificial clouds” that block out the sun. This is no longer a matter of debate. The chemtrail “conspiracy theorists” were proven correct.
Reading University’s Professor Keith Shine told the Daily Mail last year that the clouds “formed by aircraft fumes could linger ‘for hours’, depriving those areas under busy flight paths, such as London and the Home Counties, of summer sunshine.”
“Experts have warned that, as a result, the amount of sunlight hitting the ground could be reduced by as much as ten per cent. Professor Shine added: “Over the busiest areas in London and the South of England, this high-level cloud could cover the sky, turning bright sunshine into hazy conditions for the entire area. I expect the effects will get worse as the volume of air traffic increases.”
The report also makes reference to a 2009 Met Office study which found that high-level winds did not disperse contrails that later formed into clouds which covered an astonishing 20,000 miles.
Of course, only the completely naive would suggest that there is no connection between chemtrails that block out the sun, a phenomenon that has been ongoing for over a decade, and open calls on behalf of scientists to ‘reduce global warming’ by injecting the atmosphere with aerosols.
Mainstream science and academia has gone from dismissing chemtrails as a fantasy of paranoid conspiracy theorists to now accepting that they exist but claiming that they are natural and not artificially induced, despite numerous patents and scientific proposals that focus around using man-made dispersal of aerosols to alter the atmosphere.
The proposal to disperse sulphur dioxide in an attempt to reflect sunlight was discussed in a September 2008 London Guardian article entitled, Geoengineering: The radical ideas to combat global warming, in which Ken Caldeira, a leading climate scientist based at the Carnegie Institution in Stanford, California, promoted the idea of injecting the atmosphere with aerosols.
“One approach is to insert “scatterers” into the stratosphere,” states the article. “Caldeira cites an idea to deploy jumbo jets into the upper atmosphere and deposit clouds of tiny particles there, such as sulphur dioxide. Dispersing around 1m tonnes of sulphur dioxide per year across 10m square kilometres of the atmosphere would be enough to reflect away sufficient amounts of sunlight.”
Experiments similar to Caldeira’s proposal are already being carried out by U.S. government -backed scientists, such as those at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Savannah River National Laboratory in Aiken, S.C, who in 2009 began conducting studies which involved shooting huge amounts of particulate matter, in this case “porous-walled glass microspheres,” into the stratosphere.
The project is closely tied to an idea by Nobel Prize winner Paul Crutzen, who “proposed sending aircraft 747s to dump huge quantities of sulfur particles into the far-reaches of the stratosphere to cool down the atmosphere.”
In 2008, scientist Tim Flannery also warned that “mankind might need to pump sulphur into the atmosphere to survive,” adding that, “gas sulphur could be inserted into the earth’s stratosphere to keep out the sun’s rays and slow global warming, a process called global dimming.”
Such programs merely scratch the surface of what is likely to be a gargantuan and overarching black-budget funded project to geoengineer the planet, with little or no care for the unknown environmental consequences this could engender.
Given that sulphur emissions cause ‘global dimming’, is it any wonder that the emergence of the chemtrails phenomenon coincided with an average 22% drop in sunlight reaching the earth’s surface?
What is known about what happens when the environment is loaded with sulphur dioxide is bad enough, since the compound is the main component of acid rain, which according to the EPA “Causes acidification of lakes and streams and contributes to the damage of trees at high elevations (for example, red spruce trees above 2,000 feet) and many sensitive forest soils. In addition, acid rain accelerates the decay of building materials and paints, including irreplaceable buildings, statues, and sculptures that are part of our nation’s cultural heritage.”
The health effects of bombarding the skies with sulphur dioxide alone are enough to raise serious questions about whether such programs should even be allowed to proceed.
The following health effects are linked with exposure to sulphur.
- Neurological effects and behavioral changes
– Disturbance of blood circulation
– Heart damage
– Effects on eyes and eyesight
– Reproductive failure
– Damage to immune systems
– Stomach and gastrointestinal disorder
– Damage to liver and kidney functions
– Hearing defects
– Disturbance of the hormonal metabolism
– Dermatological effects
– Suffocation and lung embolism
In an outrageous repeat of Katrina, the federal government has moved into wildfire-stricken Texas and turned away firefighting trained volunteers who had converged on Bastrop and Smithville to combat the out of control flames.
According to The Gonzales Cannon, federal officials arrived at the scene and assumed command of the operation under the pretense “local officials never made a formal request for volunteers.”
Jennifer Jones, a spokesperson with the U.S. National Interagency Incident Center, confirmed that a federal group comprised of several agencies would be assuming command in Bastrop County.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, FEMA refused to allow volunteer firefighters from around the nation, as well as trucks loaded with donated water, from entering New Orleans as troops, police, and mercenaries went house-to-house confiscating weapons.
Officials in Louisiana accused FEMA of making the situation worse with red tape and a hesitant response immediately after Katrina blasted into the coasts of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, the Los Angeles Times reported on September 5, 2005.
Alex Jones was contacted on Tuesday by firefighters who confirmed that FEMA is blocking volunteer assistance and has frustrated local attempts through the U.S. Forest Service and its maze of bureaucratic red tape.
The firefighters and other volunteers report that the Forest Service is not responding to their efforts to clear federal hurdles put in the way of a response to the worst fire in Texas history.
In the past, the first line of defense during emergencies was the state National Guard. Since 9/11, however, the federal government has taken control of the Guard away from the states and has merged its operations with the Pentagon.
In 2008, then Secretary of Defense Robert Gates commissioned a study proposing recommendations to merge the National Guard and Reserves into the U.S. armed forces.
In January 2010, Obama moved the process forward when he issued an executive order establishing a Council of Governors. “In other words, the Pentagon and Homeland Security will give hand-picked governors their marching orders under the guise of ‘synchronization and integration of State and Federal military activities in the United States,’ a direct violation of Posse Comitatus,” we wrote at the time.
In 2005, Jefferson Parish President Aaron Broussard told the national media that FEMA and the feds had abandoned New Orleans after the hurricane. He described how trucks with water delivered from Wal-Mart were turned back and FEMA cut emergency communication lines.
Investigative journalist Wayne Madsen said FEMA’s actions during Katrina amounted to information warfare. “Jamming radio and other communications such as television signals is part of a Pentagon tactic called ‘information blockade’ or ‘technology blockade.’
The tactic is one of a number of such operations that are part of the doctrine of ‘information warfare’ and is one of the psychological operations (PSYOPS) methods used by the US Special Operations Command,” he told Prison Planet.com on September 6, 2005.
It appears FEMA and the feds are attempting a repeat in Texas.
“The mission of FEMA has never in reality been to bring people food and water and help in times of crisis. Alex Jones has attended numerous FEMA drills where the whole point of the exercise is to round people up, break up families and institute a brutal police state crackdown,” Paul Joseph Watson wrote after the devastating storm in the Gulf.

The global elite’s plans to wage war against the population was described in their document “Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars“.

First, in a meeting . . . or not first if they’ve gone full dictatorship… Jennifer Jones was arrested for Freedom of Speech during a town hall meeting; the Mayor tried to stand up for her, even ordering the police not to arrest her but those oath traitors take their orders from the buttrammers on the council.
POLICE STATE 2011: Woman arrested for speaking at city council meeting
Quartzsite, AZ – The Mayor is challenged under a recall election beginning next month. Accusations have been made. The city council is persecuting the Mayor for giving the people a voice. The Chief of Police is also involved in the scandal.
Jennifer Jones is given the floor at a city council meeting open to the public. While she is speaking the council realizes she’s about to air their dirty laundry and quickly beckons their henchman to cart her off.
The Mayor steps in and says Jones has been recognized to speak and has not violated the council’s rules, but the council ignores him and has the woman removed even as the Mayor continues to contest. The police officers ignore the Mayor of the city and remove the woman. It’s obvious who those cops work for, and it’s not the people.
Ms. Jones is the publisher of the local newspaper, had just filed to run for mayor, AND had recently been physically injured by the local police! She, apparently, has been VERY active in the local community of Quartsite, AZ and is concerned enough to get off her duff and try to do something about a situation that she perceives. http://www.quartzsitearizona.blogspot.com/
Quartzsite Police Chief Gilbert assaults man for videotaping

Mayor Ed Foster Comments On The State of Emergency In Quartzsite
Political tyranny in Quartzsite, AZWe’ve written about the goings-on in Quartzsite Arizona, including the YouTube video showing the arrest of a local woman who was authorized by the mayor to speak at a recent town council meeting. Now the council has ousted Mayor Ed Foster from power and declared a state of emergency.
Mayor Foster asserts that the town council held a last-minute meeting that was closed to the public — in violation of the open meetings law — Sunday night, after declaring a state of emergency in the 3,600-person western Arizona town.
Compounding matters, the council issued a declaration putting controversial police Chief Jeff Gilbert in charge. Foster referred to the act as making him the “deputy chief executive of nothing right now.” The declaration also allows the five-member council to meet without public notice and suspend all public comment at the meetings until they declare the state of emergency over.
The videos have gotten thousands of views and have people near and far sending messages of support to Foster and messages of outrage to the council. Foster’s supporters have launched a Facebook page and website.
Foster was elected in May 2010 on a campaign promise to investigate allegations of corruption in the La Paz County town.
He said since being in office, he has discovered that every pay period, eight to 10 paychecks go to unnamed people and that he has been denied access to financial records to find out where the money actually goes. He said that’s been happening since 1991 and amounts to $250,000 every year. “That’s literally millions of dollars,” Foster said.
Yeah, they tore up an airfield out of sheer spite.
Some thoughts from A Well Regulated discussion: http://www.awrm.org/ubbcgi/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=44&t=000368
You want a Lexington?
Go down to Arizona and defend Ms. Jones. Next time she speaks be there with your rifle… or rifles.
Then try to cart her off, defend her. Could you throw your lives and everything you’ve built up into the fire? See that’s what most people have a problem with; when it’s crunch time they think of family and losing everything and the enemy plays off that. Then when you give up they’ll kick you about, tase you and have a jolly laugh in the locker room before they get busy in the showers.
You wave the black flag you’d better just start shooting.
If you can get past yourselves to do that, you’d better have a Concord ready at that moment. In this situation as you get out of there how will you deal with pursuit-attempt to flee, or use the pursuit as a series of ambush opportunities.
And can you get more than yourself in on this?
Looks like we got a Lexington whether we want it or not in Quartzsite AZ. We don’t always get to choose the battles we participate or demurr from.
The mayor gets canned in a recall election-fine. Do likewise for this corrupt council. They want to bully Americans about with their oath traitors? Fine, time for some militia action.
Protests, tax strikes, shunning. Choose your tactics but it is obvious the public servants of Quartzsite are at WAR with the People of Quartzsite.
Oh, from Stewart Rhodes’ Oath Keepers:
Quartzsite Police Officers Refuse to Follow Unlawful Orders. Read Their Official Letter
57ShareNOTE FROM STEWART:
Full disclosure — I am now the official legal counsel for both Jennifer Jones and for Ed Foster, the Mayor of Quartzsite, Arizona, regarding all of the many well documented abuses of their civil rights, and in particular, their First Amendment protected rights of free speech, assembly, as well as their rights to take part in the political process, by the Quartzsite Chief of Police and Town Council. This is in my individual capacity as a lawyer, not as the President of Oath Keepers. I want to make that clear. But I do see this as part of my responsibility to keep my oath, and in particular the oath I swore as a lawyer, to defend the Constitution. Sometimes the law can indeed be used as a sword of justice, so please wish me luck in helping them hold the town council and the Chief of Police accountable!

In a June column, I concluded that “conspiracy theory” is a term applied to any fact, analysis, or truth that is politically, ideologically, or emotionally unacceptable. This column is about how common real conspiracies are. Every happening cannot be explained by a conspiracy, but conspiracies are common everyday events. Therefore, it is paradoxical that “conspiracy theory” has become a synonym for “unbelievable.”
Conspiracies are commonly used in order to advance agendas. In the July issue of American Rifleman, a National Rifle Association publication, the organization’s executive vice president, Wayne Lapierre reports on a congressional investigation led by Senator Charles Grassley and Representative Darrell Issa of a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives and Department of Justice conspiracy to further gun control measures by smuggling guns across the border to Mexican criminals and blaming it on American firearm sellers.
“Thanks to federal agents coming forth with evidence on the gun smuggling operation, this government sanctioned criminal conspiracy has been exposed.
“Leading an administration-wide cover up–marked by an arrogant dismissal of Congress’ constitutional role–is Attorney General Eric Holder, who has blocked all efforts to get to the truth. His minions have directed federal employees with knowledge of the gun-running scam to refuse to cooperate with congressional investigators.”
Many Americans will find the uncovered conspiracy hard to believe. The US Federal agency, BATFE, with the DOJ’s participation, has been providing firearms to Mexico’s drug cartels in order to create “evidence” to support the charge that US gun dealers are the source of weapons for Mexican drug gangs. The purpose of the government’s conspiracy is to advance the gun control agenda.
Attorney General Eric Holder’s stonewalling of the congressional investigation has resulted in Rep. Issa’s warning to Holder: “We’re not looking at the straw buyers, Mr. Attorney General. We’re looking at you.”
The most likely outcome will be that Grassley and Issa will have accidents or be framed on sex charges.
Conspiracies are also a huge part of economic life. For example, the Wall Street firm, Goldman Sachs, is known to have shorted financial instruments that it was simultaneously selling as sound investments to its customers. The current bailouts of EU countries’ sovereign debt is a conspiracy to privatize public domain.
Economic conspiracies are endless, and most succeed. NAFTA is a conspiracy against American labor, as are H-1B and L-1 work visas. Globalism is a conspiracy against First World jobs.
The sex charge against Dominique Strauss-Kahn could turn out to have been a conspiracy. According to the New York Times, the hotel maid has bank accounts in four states, and someone has been putting thousands of dollars into them.
Sometimes governments are willing to kill large numbers of their own citizens in order to advance an agenda. For example, Operation Northwoods was a plan for false flag terrorist events drafted by the US Joint Chiefs of Staff and signed by General Lyman Lemnitzer. It called for the CIA and other “black op” elements to shoot down Americans in the streets of Miami and Washington, D.C., to hijack or shoot down airliners, to attack and sink boats carrying Cuban refugees to the US, and to fabricate evidence that implicated Castro. The agenda of the Joint Chiefs and the CIA was to stir up American fear and hatred of Castro in order to support regime change in Cuba.
Before the reader cries “conspiracy theory,” be apprised that the secret Operation Northwoods was made public on November 18, 1997, by the John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Review Board. When the plan was presented to President Kennedy in 1962, he rejected it and removed Lemnitzer as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.
Wikipedia quotes extensively from the plan’s menu of proposed false flag terrorist acts. Those who distrust Wikipedia can obtain a copy of the plan from the National Archives.
When I tell even highly educated people about Operation Northwoods, they react with disbelief–which goes to show that even US government-acknowledged conspiracies remain protected by disbelief a half century after they were hatched and 14 years after being revealed by the government.
An example of a conspiracy that is proven, but not officially acknowledged, is Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty in 1967. Captain Ward Boston, one of the two US Navy legal officers ordered to cover up the attack, not investigate it, revealed the Johnson Administration’s conspiracy, and that of every subsequent administration, to blame mistaken identity for what was an intentional attack. The unofficial Moorer Commission, led by Admiral Tom Moorer, former Chief of Naval Operations and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, proved conclusively that the Israeli attack, which inflicted massive casualties on US servicemen, was an intentional attack. Yet, the US government will not acknowledge it, and few Americans even know about it.
Even the event Americans celebrate on July 4 was a conspiracy and was regarded as such by the British government and American colonials who remained loyal to King George. If we don’t believe in conspiracies, why do we celebrate one on July 4?
