David and Goliath

The way to beat the monster of corrupt and overbearing government, lies in the individual.

Throughout history we have had many examples of this.

David felled Goliath

One man stood up to the tanks in Tiananmen Square, and helped expose the brutality of the communist China regime.

Gandhi stood up to the British Empire and helped India realize independence.

George Washington lost many battles, but won by taking smaller victories where he could with what he had. Over time he was able to wear out the British forces who were far superior to the motley crew of American Patriots.

And so today, here we are again. It is no longer Great Britain who is the Goliath, but the very government imposed to protect us from such a giant. The American government today is perhaps one of the must tyrannical entities on the planet. Especially when you consider the power and wealth at their disposal.

We learn how to tame this beast in the writings of David and Goliath. We take our victories where we can. The big battles won’t be one immediately, and not in the form of elections for president (unless Ron Paul wins), but in local elections, in state laws, in the people coming together to protect themselves and their neighbors from encroaching government.

Our victories on the battlefield for information lies with the internet, on blogs such as these, where philosophy and politics is laid out for everyone to see.

Do not sit down and allow Goliath to stomp down on you. Stand up, speak out, do something! Take the small victories where you can, and realize that many battles lie ahead in this increasingly bitter war.

In the end, freedom prevails, when there are enough David’s in the room to stand up and stick spears in the beast.

Just as the original American revolution was a hard won battle, so this one will be also. The war was won by a group of individuals who stood up and got together, and stuck through all the hardships, in order to prevail.

The question is; are you prepared to be David?

Military Police and Drones

When asked the question ‘how on earth could you do that?’ is asked. Their answers are all the same; ‘I was just doing my job’ or ‘I’ve got bills to pay’. They were just doing their ‘duty’. The problem with collectivism, is that it is so rampant, and so widespread, that it affects everyone’s lives. It is easy to hide behind, and is the cause of millions of deaths and suffering in the world.

Portrait of a Drone Killer: ‘I Have a Duty, and I Execute My Duty’

One wonders if drone pilot Col. D. Scott Brenton listens to Louis Armstrong in the suburban Air National Guard Base in Syracuse from which he murders people 7,000 miles away.

“I see mothers with children, I see fathers with children, I see fathers with mothers, I see kids playing soccer,” Brenton tells the New York Times. Drone operators see their intended targets “wake up in the morning, do their work, go to sleep at night,” explains Dave, another high-tech murderer who killed from an office cockpit at Nevada’s Creech Air Force Base and who now trains new recruits to the cyber-killer corps at New Mexico’s Holloman Air Force Base.

When instructed to kill someone he has stalked from the air for a prolonged period, “I feel no emotional attachment to the enemy,” Brenton insists. I have a duty, and I execute my duty.” When the deed is done, he points out, nobody “in my immediate environment is aware of anything that has occurred.”

“There was a good reason for killing the people that I did, and I go through it in my head over and over and over,” insists another drone operator named Will, who — like Dave — served a deskbound “combat” tour at Creech and now trains others to do likewise at Holloman Air Base.

 

Like the soldier Bates in Henry V, it’s sufficient for Will — and others of his ilk — to render obedience to their Leader, confident that “if his cause be wrong, our obedience to the king wipes the crime of it out of us.” The more concise and notorious formula, of course, is: We are only obeying orders. Besides, drone operators (who insist on being called “combat pilots”) are carrying out an indispensable function by picking off Afghan “militants” — or at least those “suspected” of such tendencies — who unreasonably resent the presence of foreign military personnel in their country.

The New York Times profile is part of a campaign by the state-aligned media to “humanize” the state functionaries who murder by remote control — and to normalize this mode of mass murder as drones become part of the domestic apparatus of surveillance, regimentation, and repression. Readers are invited to share the anguish of these conflicted people, who for reasons of duty have to do terrible but necessary things.

In her book Eichmann in Jerusalem, Hannah Arendt offered a glimpse into the mindset of SS personnel who were given a somewhat similar assignment. To carry out their killing errand, she explained, something had to be done “to overcome not so much their conscience as the animal pity by which all normal men are affected in the presence of physical suffering.”

“The trick used by Himmler … was very simple and probably very effective; it consisted in turning these instincts around, as it were, in directing them toward the self,” Arendt recounted. “So that instead of saying: What horrible things I did to people!, the murderers would be able to say: What horrible things I had to watch in the pursuance of my duties, how heavily the task weighed upon my shoulders!”

Not everybody attached to the Regime’s Cyber-Killing Corps is haunted by the horrors he has inflicted on defenseless people halfway around the world. In a 2009 U.S. Naval Academy lecture, Dr. P.W. Singer of the Brookings Institution made reference to what he called “predator porn” — footage of drone attacks proudly circulated by the people who committed those acts. In a typical offering, Dr. Singer relates, “A Hellfire missile drops, goes in, and hits the target, followed by an explosion and bodies tossed into the air.” Singer described one clip of that kind, sent to him by a joystick-wielding assassin, that “was set to music, the pop song ‘I Just Want to Fly’ by the band Sugar Ray.”

“It’s like a videogame,” one deskbound drone jockey told Singer. “It can get a little bloodthirsty. But it’s f****g cool.”

Singer describes asking a drone pilot “what it was like to fight insurgents in Iraq while based in Nevada. He said, ‘You are going to war for 12 hours, shooting weapons at targets, directing kills on enemy combatants, and then you get in the car and you drive home. And within 20 minutes, you’re sitting at the dinner table talking to your kids about their homework.” Meanwhile, somewhere in Iraq (or Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, or another country yet to be identified), other families are desperately looking through the rubble of their own homes in search of survivors.

Although drone strikes occur daily, most Americans pay little heed to them — beyond occasionally taking inconsolable offense when a dissident publicly describes them as acts of murder, and insults the Dear Leader by daring to compare him to less prolific killers.

This may change soon: As the Times points out, the Pentagon — driven by “a near insatiable demand for drones” — is training hundreds of operators to join the corps of more than 1,300 currently stationed at more than a dozen bases across the country. Surveillance drones operated by domestic police agencies are already plying the skies above us. Those robot aircraft can be upgraded to airborne weapons platforms, and they soon will. The people being trained to feel “no emotional attachment” to foreigners designated enemies of the state will feel no particular burden when ordered to kill fellow Americans on that list. I’m sure that the “combat pilots” who murdered U.S. citizen Anwar al-Awlaki and his 16-year-old son Abdulrahman would testify to that fact — that is, if the “heroes” who committed those acts were man enough to acknowledge their deeds in public.

Evil men and their puppets are able to hide behind technology now, but it is harder for the police ‘on the street’. The evidence of militarized build up of police forces is now rampant. The problems arise when innocent people get shot by cops who cross the line, like the events in Anaheim a few days ago.

The people who protest against police brutality and the militarization of police forces are heroes. Now how exactly is this young man threatening anyone?

‘Tempers continued to flare in Anaheim on Sunday afternoon as a group of about 250 protesters stood directly in front of the Police Department, the latest demonstration the city has seen after two fatal police shootings last weekend. Heavily armed and militarized forces were patrolling the streets and nine people were arrested including this man.’

Why is it, in a civilized nation, that we need the police force to become militarized? Is it because we are heading straight toward total anarchy? Or a total police state? I would say we already have a police state. There are security cameras being put up at new intersections all over the country. The police have become militarized, and the TSA has become an ever increasing parasite, including not only airports now, but bus services, and road checkpoints. This country truly is becoming the spitting image of Nazi Germany of the 1930’s.

When you hear news pundits talk about the ‘greatness of America’ and of patriotism and ‘serving your nation’. They are talking of serving the state, for the sake of the state, and not for the responsibility of liberty. Freedom comes at a cost, but not in wars over seas. We have lost more freedoms since our armed forces have been in Iraq and Afghanistan, than any other point in our nation’s history.

Take a look around you, what do you see? Is this still the home of the brave and the land of the free? Or do you notice the 450 million rounds of ammunition going to homeland security, an agency that didn’t exist a few years ago. And do you see all the horrible constitution denying documents that are being passed by congress?

Nazi Germany came about slowly over the course of a decade, in a similar way to this country over this previous decade.

What is your definition of patriotism? Do you support and defend the Constitution and your own individual liberties, or do you support the nation state and the collective?

At what point should the police and military stop taking horrific orders? Will they stop at the sight of Americans themselves being killed? Or is their training so ingrained that they will go along with whatever their masters tell them to?

And what will you do? How far will you go? Will you stand up and stop this from happening? Or will you go along with the nation, for the greatness of the nation state?

As Yoda said in star wars; “you must unlearn, what you have learned”

What Really Happened; and false flags

For a while now I have mentioned the site www.whatreallyhappened.com

I have mentioned the site because Mike Rivero does a great job at displaying hundreds of articles a day from various alternative news sites, that you won’t see on the ‘mainstream media’. Recently, viewings of such channels as CNN have plummeted so far that ‘what really happened’ has over taken over in number of viewers/readers.

Also, you have seen me mention false flags and Zionism.

I now believe that 9/11 was a false flag attack, for many reasons. And that there are, and have been many false flag attacks throughout history.

The Olympics, while being held not too far from where I was born, may well be a major distraction, and become a false flag event. Never in my life have I seen Britain so militarized for any event.

Does it not seem odd that our presidential candidates always go to Israel before becoming president?

All the events that are going on right now, seem to be adding up. I think people such as Glenn Beck, Alex Jones and others all have peices of the puzzle, but that they don’t completely add up. I think Mike Rivero is closer than anyone right now to understanding ‘what really happened’.

I have studied the American Revolution and the declaration of independence, and I have studied the ‘tea party’ groups and ‘occupy wall street’ groups. It seems a little too convienient that one ‘side’ is declared to be ‘conservative’ and the other ‘side’ declared to be ‘liberal’. I agree with the Tea Party groups that we are taxed too much and that government has too much control. But I also agree with the Occupiers that there are criminals in some of the banks and in government. There are members of the 1% who do need to be brought to justice. But I have no problem with capitalism, I do not want some kind of socialist society. Equally, I’m not interested in serving in the military or praising God every sunday, as many of the Tea Party group advocate. I think what both groups are really grasping at; is that they want government off their backs and want to be free to create their dreams again. I believe that sooner (hopefully with the election of Ron Paul) or later, there will be another revolution in this country. Between the individualists and the collectivists.

I would say, check your premise. What are you actually supporting? Are you part of a collective, or a band of individuals, working together for mutual advantage?

And as for the media and current going’s on, I would say, as Sherlock Holmes did; “when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth”

Here are a few articles to keep you busy:

The Jews do control the media

Romney courts donors

70 Million voters ignored

London Olympics – False Flag, Diversion or Prelude?

These are but a blip of information of what is going on right now. Take each with a pinch of salt, and try to keep an open mind. An emotional electorate will elect anyone, and allow anything to happen.

Oh, and remember what I said about WWIII?

Yeah, check these two articles out:

Chinese Destroyer Enters Suez Canal

Iran, Syria, Russia, China plan naval drill in Mediterranean

The world is waking up, and it’s doing so in the form of blogs like these (perhaps that’s why so many members of congress wanted PIPA and SOPA to go through, to silence the masses)

The Joker: another false flag?

The dust has settled a little from the tragic event in Colorado on early Friday morning.

What doesn’t add up is how calm the defendant is, and how spaced out he is. He looks like he’s under hypnosis or on drugs or something.

Also; where did he get tear gas from?

How did he manage to shoot 71 people with a semi automatic weapon, in just 1 1/2 minutes?

And how was his adrenaline not in overdrive when the police arrive?

Also, all the evidence is now destroyed at his apartment because of the controlled explosions.

And it seems that he already has a layer of lawyers.

And one more thing; why would a successful PhD student just drop out and go and do this? He doesn’t look angry, he just looks possessed.

A couple of gun owners clubs say that he had a guttural sounding voice over the phone, that sounds like someone who is possessed.

Why did the news reports say there were multiple shooters, then immediately turn around and say there was only one?

All of this is too strange and too neat to simply gloss over and say he was just psycho. I now think there was more to it.

When you consider that the UN small arms treaty is being ready to be signed soon, it seems a little too convenient to have a mass murder occur in one of the strongest supporting nation’s of firearms, right before the treaty is signed.

In other news, the only other things we heard over the weekend from the mainstream news channels, was the escalation of violence in Syria, and the prime minister of Israel; Benjamin Netanyahoo; blaming Iran immediately after the bombing in Belarus, when no evidence was even gathered, and Iran denied having anything to do with it.

When you take into consideration that the Olympics is starting in a few days in what is now highly militarized London, and the security was provided by an Israeli owned security company (which failed to hire enough security guards) everything that is going on right now seems mighty fishy.

Over the last few months I have been doing a lot of research into what has gone on in the US and the rest of the world in the last couple of decades and I can see many sickening coincidences.

It seems that 9/11 was a false flag event also, and that Israel is behind a lot of the bad things going on in the world and particularly the middle east right now. To be specific, it is the extremist faction in Israel called the Zionists, who seem to be behind everything.

Now I’m no conspiracy nut, but when you do enough research and use an analytical mindset, it isn’t hard to see the truth.

Stay vigilant, keep an eye on the mainstream news, but keep reading independent news articles and blogs. I sense a bigger plot about to happen.

Time is running out for the Israeli Empire

This is a very interesting perspective, and covers many areas. Make sure you read the whole thing and look up the resources. This article touches on many of the things I have found out myself over the last few months.

‘Syria is do or die for Israel.’

There are lies, great lies and then there is 911.’

Sheikh Imran Hosein

Dr Alan Sabrosky is a ten year veteran of the United States Marine Corps and has a PhD from the University of Michigan. He was a Director of Studies at the US Army War College. He is partially of Jewish descent. He has been telling his former colleagues in the Marine Corps and at the Army War College that Israel did 911.  He accuses American Jews of a lack of loyalty to their native land and giving their allegiance to Israel.  He said that being loyal to America is a non-negotiable part of citizenship. By attacking America on 911, the Israelis and the traitors in America who defend them set in motion a series of events that led to 60,000 American casualties and more if you count the suicides.

The Batman Blood Bath

I was deeply saddened to read the news about the massacre in Colorado late Thursday night at the premier of the third Batman movie. As a regular movie goer myself, I can only imagine how the victims and witnesses must have felt.

The mainstream circus media as usual is covering this tragedy with minute to minute reports, while subliminally sliding in their agendas. Politicians are already calling for tighter gun measures, and many other nations are scoffing at the United States’ policy of allowing its citizens to own guns.

Now is not the time for political measures and media circuses. What happened was a tragedy. Yes guns can be deadly, but they are not death rays, of the 71 people shot, 12 died. 80% of the people shot survived. When England experienced a similar incident in the 90’s handguns were banned outright not long afterwards in a knee jerk ruling in parliament. Since that fateful day handgun crime has sky rocketed, and more people die by guns than ever before, in a nation that cannot legally poses firearms.

Please do not allow the politicians and media turn this tragic event at the hands of a mad man, to turn into a ploy to take your weapons from you. Learn how to shoot a gun, get a concealed carry permit if you feel comfortable doing so. Help promote safe firearms handling and understanding, and promote the carrying of weapons for self defense. Don’t allow the parasitical elements of society to turn this into a way to take your last freedom from you.

Mourn the victims, help their families and friends in their moments of need, but celebrate the lives of the ones lost by living yours to its fullest potential. Show spite at the mad man by continuing to buy your own guns for self defense. And let the government know that just because of a few nut cases, does not mean you should allow all the criminals a free hand in society by disabling the protections of innocent people by banning their gun owning and constitutional rights.

I will mourn for the victims of this massacre, but I will not watch the news any more, and I will get on with my life. I will go and see the movie, with a moment of silence and a prayer at the beginning of it, then I will enjoy it for what its worth. I will do this because there are many tragedies in the world, there are shootings, rapes and mass murders every day throughout the world in many different countries. There are gangs on poverty stricken streets in America, and there are dictators of pariah regimes in other nations who order summary executions. There is death and despair all over the world, but there is also hope.

Always think of the good things in life, advocate freedom in the world, and live life to the fullest, tell your loved ones what they mean to you, and spend time with them. Life is short. If you’re lucky you’ll get old, but there are many short endings that pop up, whether it be at the end of a madman’s gun or from an accident or disease.

Remember that the point of terrorism, whether domestic or international, is to change one’s point of view, to gear a nation up for war, or to change an election. Don’t allow this event to change you or your country or its ideals of freedom and the right to protect that.

I will mourn the dead, as I do for other areas and nations, and move on.

Turn off your TV

Have you ever watched the movie ‘They Live’?

My wife and I cancelled our cable service over six months ago now, and what a joy it has been. We still watch certain shows and movies on Netflix, but it was such a relief to get away from the ‘regularly scheduled programming’ (pun intended) especially from the news channels, which are bias beyond belief.

I’m lucky, I come from another developed nation that speaks the same language, and is similar in almost every way to this one. Having been raised in a similar yet different enviornment, it wasn’t hard for me to get disconnected with the ‘mainstream’ since I could sense something was out of place already, having grown up under a different culture.

When I was in school in the UK, I was taught critical thinking. When we learned about journalism in English class, we were taught not to be bias, but to judge the information presented from a neutral point of view.

The US media is so bais that it no longer takes a lesson in real journalism to see it. All you have to do is switch off the television and look up some articles online, to see true journalism in effect. When you turn the TV back on, all you see is ‘Liberal this’ and ‘Conservative that’ and you see talking heads on news channels, where they rarely go outside the studio. You see panels of people talking about a subject, but not actually investigating it, or going out in the field. All American news channels take a sound bite, or a clip, or hearsay, and expand it for many minutes out of the hour with a heated discussion about the supposed subject. It’s like watching a gang of high school teenagers discuss which brand has the worst pair of tennis shoes.

Recently I read this article that explains that only 20% of Americans trust the media anymore:

A recent Gallup poll shows that an all time low of on only 20% of the public trusts the news as citizen journalism continues to rise.

Bias and bungled reporting on US news networks are behind plummeting audience numbers, according to the Gallup Poll.

As far as the 20% who do still trust the news I would suppose they simply either don’t have internet access or when they go online the don’t dare stray to far from sites owned by the corporations that own the corporate media.

For anyone who happens to land here that still believes the news is trustworthy these will instantly make you non-believers as well: Caught: Staged CNN Syria Interviews Faked By Activist Danny and Wag The Dog – Media Caught Faking Syria News Stories.

Of course that isn’t even the tip of the iceberg.

RT reports on the Gallup Poll and the continual decline of the corporate media in the video below which also looks at a cutting-edge project that’s encouraging ordinary Americans to drive our country’s news agenda instead.

I challenge you to turn your TV off, and start doing some of your own research outside of the Mainstream Media.

My favorite site to date is www.whatreallyhappened.com

Good luck, and I hope you start seeing what I, and many others are seeing out there right now, that ‘they live’ and that we are no longer informed properly by the media on any channel, and that it is up to us to report the real news out there.

Oh, and coincidentally, does anyone else think that Mitt Romney looks remarkably like one of the aliens in the movie?
