Sweden To Impose Martial Law ???

Now here is an interesting report:

Sweden wants to use the army at home in the fight against criminal gangs.

Although the MSM seeks mightily to prove this has nothing to do with immigration, is such a claim believable? Are "home grown" gangs really more powerful than Swedish police?

Whatever happens, I wish them well.

I'm rooting for Austin, TX. I could use a bump in my real estate value in the near future.

We in the US need to jump on this bandwagon, and soon.

Is The Intercept A Honey Trap For Whistleblowers ???

That's part of what this report alleges:

FBI Whistleblower on Pierre Omidyar and His Campaign to Neuter Wikileaks

FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds asserts Pierre Omidyar decided to create The Intercept not only to take ownership of the Snowden leaks but to also continue his blockade against WikiLeaks and to create a “honey trap” for whistleblowers.

I cannot vouch for all these claims, but I do know one thing - the philosophy of Wikileaks is to release everything and to let the public sort it out, while the philosophy of The Intercept seems to be to release only that which The Intercept sees fit to print.

Which of the two do you prefer?

By the way, I like Sibel Edmonds. I believe she has just one agenda - to tell the truth. I'm not so sure about these other guys.

Who We Really Are

"Man is not what he thinks he is, he is what he hides."
André Malraux

What have we been hiding?

A year after he was released from captivity in Guantánamo, Binyam Mohamed received a letter from Christina Cowger, an agricultural researcher from North Carolina. Enclosed was a petition of apology signed by nearly 800 visitors to the North Carolina State Fair.

It was “a small gesture”, Cowger acknowledged, but her 2010 letter came with a commitment. North Carolina Stop Torture Now, an organization she co-founded, had been conducting protests, petition drives and legislative campaigns seeking an official investigation into an obscure firm operating flights out of her local airport.

The firm, Aero Contractors, was the CIA front company that operated the Gulfstream business jet that delivered Mohamed to a secret prison in Morocco to be tortured.

Though few government officials supported such an investigation, she wrote, the group pledged “to work toward true transparency and accountability in the United States for the crimes against you and other survivors”.

Seven years later, Cowger sat in the front row of a makeshift hearing room in the Raleigh Convention Center as 11 volunteer commissioners of the North Carolina Commission of Inquiry on Torture “upped the ante”, as she put it, on that pledge.

Over the course of two days, this “citizen-led truth seeking commission” called 20 witnesses to testify on the damage done by Aero’s rendition operations.

"Our" government is not what we think it is, it is what it hides. It hides torture, it uses secret evidence (or no evidence), and it hides its many crimes against humanity.

I commend this group in North Carolina. Maybe if the rest of us had a similar conscience and the courage to go with it, organizations like the CIA wouldn't be able to commit these outrageous acts.

US Civil War Has Many Fronts

Face it - a second civil war is underway in the United States.

And what is it about? The powers that be are attacking We The People and our constitutional form of government. They want something else, something "new", a government in which THEY have all the power and in which the "outdated" ideas of freedom and civil rights embodied in the US Constitution and common law are replaced by whatever it is THEY want.

This civil war had its beginnings in the National Security Act of 1947. It expanded as if on steroids following the 9/11 attacks and their related state of emergency declared by President George W. Bush, a state of emergency which has been renewed annually ever since. Some say that "continuity of government" measures are now in place, measures which effectively override our constitution. Few people can know for certain whether that is true, since We The People don't have a high enough "security clearance" to be told what "our" government has been and is doing. But the signs are everywhere, and they seem quite ominous:

(1) A former president openly seeks to disrupt the agenda of the sitting president through the potentially seditious actions of his group "Organizing For Action". You can read about it here:

https://www.ofa.us/

(2) The MSM attacks and mocks the president and his policies on a 24/7 basis.

(3) Hollywood and social media mock the president mercilessly and seem to urge the use of violence to remove him from office.

(4) On an almost daily basis, police and sheriff deputies around the country shoot, injure, and/or kill We The People, often for ridiculous reasons (or for no reason), and are hardly ever punished for it.

(5) Public school systems use violent coercive measures against our children, often sending them to jail for the commission of harmless pranks.

(6) University professors are compiling "hit lists" of those whom they disapprove and sharing those lists with potentially violent gang-like organizations. You can read one such example here:

All these and more appear to me to be fronts in the on-going US civil war. And what are We The People doing in response to these often violent outrages? NOTHING ... absolutely nothing.

Read the US Bill of Rights. There you will find the tools The Founders gave us to preserve our freedoms and curb our government's lust for power. But guess what? Just about each and every one of those tools has been rendered useless. Where does that leave us?

Long ago, a famous US naval officer gave this response when he was asked to surrender:

"I have not yet begun to fight!"

Like him, We The People haven't begun to fight either. But we had better find a way soon, a NONVIOLENT way, to fight back on all these many fronts, or our cause is doomed.
