A Summary of the U.S. Senate’s Draconian Gun Control Proposals
Georgia police acquired $200 million worth of military-grade vehicles and weapons through DoD
WHY IS GOVERNMENT STOCKPILING GUNS, AMMO?
Is the U.S. government getting ready for a war we don’t know about?
And, if that’s why Washington is stockpiling massive amounts of ammunition (hollow points, by the way), why is Homeland Security doing the buying instead of the Defense Department?
Here’s what presidential candidate Barack [...]
They are not calling for denial of service attacks on government websites or protests as is their normal modus operandi, but for freedom activists to join them in full-blown war to overthrow the US Government and return it to the control of the people.

In the latest video from Anonymous, they have called for the most aggressive action yet. They’re asking the American people to join them in a “call to arms” for the destruction and overthrow of the US Government.
In the statement, Anonymous says the government is calling them “terrorists” because they truly fear a people’s uprising.
“The United States Government insists on labeling us as terrorists. The question is, “who do we terrorize?” [...]
The cesspool known as Chicago probably has the toughest gun laws in the country, yet despite all the shootings, murders, and bloodshed, you never hear a peep about this from the corrupt state run media. In Chicago, there have been 446 school age children shot in leftist utopia run by Rahm Emanuel and that produced Obama, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, etc. 62 school aged children have actually been killed by [...]

Members of the Trilateral Commission’s North American Group and congressmen who attended the gathering struggled hard to hide their meeting in Washington, D.C., November 30-December 3. They wanted no public viewing of their efforts to get yet another war started in the Mideast.
The North American Group is a regional subgroup of the Trilateral Commission (TC), founded in 1973 by billionaire David Rockefeller to expand ties among North America, Europe and Asia.

Despite Barack Obama’s apparent hesitancy to politicize last week’s Aurora massacre for election points scoring, his supporters have been far less reserved, urging the President to hijack such attacks in order to secure re-election.

Syrian troops clashed with rebels in the city of Aleppo for a second day today, forcing residents to flee to safer areas in some of the fiercest fighting to date.

Friday, we read in the New York Times and elsewhere about one of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s most important supporters and allies having defected. The impression one gets is that Assad’s government is in a state of collapse— and this gives credibility to those pushing for Assad to turn over power.
But what the media are not mentioning is that Brigadier General Manaf Tlass did not defect directly from the [...]

Following Soviet Russia’s dissolution, everything changed but stayed the same. US aims remained hard-wired. Today it’s back to the future.
Cold War politics were reinvented. Russia’s again the Evil Empire. Today’s stakes are much greater. World peace is threatened.
Preemptive aggression is official US policy. America’s duopoly power wages permanent wars. Israeli Lobby and Christian Right extremists support them. The fuse is lit for trouble.
Beating up on Russia [...]
Moscow’s arms shipments to Syria will aggravate the continuing bloodshed in the Arab country, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday. “We are concerned about the latest information we have that there are attack helicopters on the way from Russia to Syria, which will escalate the conflict quite dramatically,” she said.

Russia said on Tuesday that President Bashar al-Assad could leave power as part of a settlement to end bloodshed in Syria, as Saudi Arabia called on Moscow to end its support for his embattled regime.

How Wall Street & London Manufacture Tragedy to Sell War & Regime Change.
In the wake of the Houla massacre in Syria, and evidence exposing the West’s initial narrative of Syrian troops “shelling to death” around 100 people to be categorically false, people are struggling to understand just what happened. The Guardian has chosen to post unverified witness accounts produced by the Free Syrian Army, seemingly custom tailored to refute [...]
The benchmark S&P 500 index is not really down by that much from its highs. The decline is on the order of 7%, which is significant, but not a massacre.
However, there are massacres happening in this market if you look at the right places, and especially if you look at some areas which are very economically sensitive.

(Reuters) – Iran is helping its ally Syria defy Western sanctions by providing a vessel to ship Syrian oil to a state-run company in China, potentially giving the government of President Bashar al-Assad a financial boost worth an estimated $80 million.
Iran, itself a target of Western sanctions, is among Syria’s closest allies and has promised to do all it can to support Assad, recently praising his handling of the year-long uprising [...]
In an army of 150,000 US and Nato soldiers in Afghanistan one rogue solider who massacres sixteen civilians, including nine children, does not necessarily mean that discipline and morale of the whole force is breaking down. However, when the spate of recent incidents are put together – US soldiers burning copies of the Koran, footage apparently showing US Marines urinating on bodies of dead Taliban fighters and a spate [...]
The Pentagon is readying for the possibility of intervention in Syria, aiming to halt Syrian President Bashsar Assad’s violent crackdown on protesters, the newspaper Asharq Al-Awsat reported Saturday, citing a US military offical.
