False Flag - Coming Soon!

Highly toxic squalene MF59 adjuvant that caused Gulf War syndrome in military servicemen now being added to some civilian flu vaccines

Compulsory vaccination has long been a requirement to serve in the U.S. armed forces, and it is well documented that many of the vaccines administered to servicemen over the years have been experimental in nature, meaning they contained untested adjuvants and other questionable additives. But it has recently come to our attention that the highly toxic vaccine adjuvant squalene MF59, which was first given to servicemen back during the first Gulf War and later linked to causing Gulf War syndrome, is now being added to some civilian flu vaccines.

At a 2010 gathering of the American Rally for Personal Rights in Chicago, registered nurse and retired Air Force Captain Richard Rovet warned his listening audience about the dangers of squalene MF59, the devastation and horrors of which he witnessed first hand during his time in the service. The experimental oil-in-water adjuvant, which was forced on all servicemen beginning in 1999 via the mandatory anthrax vaccine, caused many of Capt. Rovet's comrades to suffer severe and permanent side effects. One of Capt. Rovet's closest friends, in fact, was actually killed as a result of squalene MF59.

"For the past 64 years, the United States Military and other agencies within our government have used our servicemen and women as test subjects, oftentimes in secret and without informed consent," explained Capt. Rovet. "In December of 1994, the United States Senate released a report titled, 'Is military research hazardous to a veteran's health? Lessons spanning half a century' ... [that] outlines the unethical use of servicemen and women as test subjects, guinea pigs."

After establishing that squalene MF59 was admittedly experimental, Capt. Rovet went on to explain how the U.S. government willfully ignored all documented evidence showing that the anthrax vaccine, and squalene MF59 in particular, was directly responsible for triggering an epidemic of Gulf War syndrome that left hundreds of thousands of servicemen seriously injured or dead. Not only this, but the U.S. Department of Defense actually ordered that both the anthrax vaccine and a related botulism toxoid vaccine, both of which contained experimental squalene MF59, not be annotated in soldiers' medical records -- they were instead generically identified as "Vac A" and "Vac B" in order to conceal their identity.

"Roughly one in four of the 697,000 veterans, my brothers and sisters who served in the first Gulf War, are afflicted with Gulf War illness ... [and] study after study shows a higher rate of Gulf War illness in vaccinated veterans. That's a fact," added Capt. Rovet. "Military members can be ordered to take medicines and vaccines against their will, or be imprisoned and discharged from the armed forces with a criminal record for the rest of their lives, right up there with rape perpetrators."

Novartis now using MF59 in Fluad influenza jab, investigational swine and bird flu vaccines

Just before bursting into tears while recalling the atrocities he witnessed as a result of this experimental vaccination conspiracy, Capt. Rovet urged those in attendance at the rally to be on the lookout for squalene MF59, as he believed at the time that it would soon be added to civilian vaccines. And sure enough, Switzerland-based drug giant Novartis admits that squalene MF59 is currently being used in its Fluad influenza vaccine, which is used in Italy, as well as in pandemic influenza vaccines like Aflunov that are currently in development.

You can view a Novartis document admitting its use of squalene MF59 here:

It is important that the public be made aware of the true history behind squalene MF59, and its pattern of causing serious injury and death. Novartis has obviously whitewashed the adjuvant's safety record, and the mainstream media has yet to address this very serious issue. But the science speaks for itself.

"Folks that fought alongside us in the Gulf War who did not take the anthrax vaccine have no incidence of Gulf War illness," concluded Capt. Rovet.

Students Banned from Passing Out Constitutions on Constitution Day at Modesto Junior College

Cop Says to Terrified Woman After Shattering Her Car Window: “You wouldn’t comply”

“Because I said so, that’s why.”
That is the creed of authoritarians and thugs in jackboots the world over and that was basically what occurred in this traffic stop gone terribly wrong.
A simple traffic violation ended up with an angry cop shattering a terrified woman’s car window and forcing her to the pavement face down simply because she only wanted to roll the window down half way. In true “serve and protect fashion” the officer said to terrified woman, “If you don’t open the window I”m going to break the window.”
The woman made no attempt to roll the window up on his fingers. She didn’t wave around a weapon. She didn’t attempt to put the car into gear and flee. She kept her hands in plain sight on the steering wheel throughout the encounter (until, of course, she was cringing away from the flying glass). She simply refused to open the window all the way, a tactic that is often recommended to women alone when they are in a situation with police that makes them feel uncomfortable. This particular cop must have missed the PSA advising women to be cautious because her attempt to politely maintain her safety apparently enraged him.
When the woman calmly and reasonably asked why he insisted the window be rolled down more than halfway, while steadfastly refusing to cave to his raised voice and threats, the uniformed bully escalated, shattering her window and sending glass all over her as she visibly cringed away from him. She was then dragged from the car and placed face down on the pavement before being cuffed.
When she asked why, the answer was simply, “You wouldn’t comply.”

One man's ObamaCare nightmare

Andy and Amy Mangione of Louisville, Ky. and their two boys are just the kind of people who should be helped by ObamaCare. But they recently got a nasty surprise in the mail.
"When I saw the letter when I came home from work," Andy said, describing the large red wording on the envelope from his insurance carrier, "(it said) 'your action required, benefit changes, act now.' Of course I opened it immediately."
It had stunning news. Insurance for the Mangiones and their two boys,which they bought on the individual market, was going to almost triple in 2014 --- from $333 a month to $965.
The insurance carrier made it clear the increase was in order to be compliant with the new health care law.
"This isn't a Cadillac plan, this isn't even a silver plan," Mangione said, referring to higher levels of coverage under ObamaCare.
"This is a high deductible plan where I'm assuming a lot of risk for my health insurance for my family. And nothing has changed, our boys are healthy-- they're young --my wife is healthy. I'm healthy, nothing in our medical history has changed to warrant a tripling of our premiums.
"Well I'm the one that does the budget,” said his wife. "Eventually I've got that coming down the pike that I gotta figure out what we're gonna cut what we're gonna do, to afford a $1,000 a month premium."
Their insurance company, Humana, declined to comment, but the notice to the Mangiones carried this paragraph:
" If your policy premium increased, you should know this isn't unique to Humana -- premium increases generally will occur industry-wide.
"Increases aren't based on your individual claims or changes in health status," it continued. "Many other factors go in to your premium including: ACA compliance, including the addition of new essential health benefits."
ACA, of course, is the abbreviation for the President's new law, the Affordable Care Act -- which for the Mangiones will be anything but affordable because the law adds a new tax on every insurance policy and requires a list of additional benefits the Mangiones didn’t want to pay for.
Robert Zirkelbach, spokesman for American Health Insurance Plans, which represents insurers,explained that "for people who currently choose to purchase a high deductible, low premium policy that's more affordable for them, they are now being required to add all these new benefits to their policy.
That," he says, "is also going to add to the cost of their health insurance premiums."
This comes amid a huge debate over whether ObamaCare will raise or lower insurance rates.
For the Mangiones, that answer is abundantly clear.

Why is Obamacare so unaffordable? Because it was conceived as a political weapon of mass economic destruction

Right now, all across America, employees are receiving notices that their insurance coverage is being dropped because it isn't "compliant" with Obamacare. Simultaneously, employers everywhere are slashing jobs, cutting hours and downsizing their operations just to stay afloat by avoiding the most punishing requirements of Obamacare. Across the economy, Obamacare is devastating American workers and casting tens of millions of people into a state of despair.

Why is Obamacare -- the "Affordable Care Act" -- so unaffordable? Why is it causing jobs, hours and insurance policies to be gutted all across America? Because it was designed as a political weapon to destroy private sector jobs so that more people would become dependent on government entitlements, food stamps and welfare programs.

Mass victimization is a political strategy, and Obamacare is the weapon

It's time you learned the truth about Obamacare and how victimization is a political "weapon of mass destruction." The Democratic party thrives primarily on victimization. The more destitute workers become, the more they demand handouts from politicians, and no party is more willing to widely distribute handouts than the Democratic party. Ensnaring people in a cycle of poverty and dependence is the democrats' long-term re-election strategy. The more people who live in poverty, in other words, the more powerful the Democrats become.

(In fairness, the Republicans' long-term re-election strategy is to ensnare nations in endless wars, conflict and engineered terrorism. But that's another article altogether. For the record, I endorse the platform of the Canary Party.)

Because of this dynamic, the Democratic party is terrified by individuals who can take care of themselves. Self-empowered people quickly learn they don't need as much government in their lives, and they tend to vote for smaller government. But people who are in a state of constant crisis from losing their job, getting their hours cut or losing their health insurance automatically turn to big government for help. They demand more government and more assistance programs, and this reliably translates into more democrats getting voted into office on election day.

From the very start, the Obamacare plan was to thrust American workers into a state of despair and panic by making health insurance all but unaffordable to employers. To top off the scheme, the entire charade was named the "Affordable Care Act" to fool the masses into initially supporting it. (Beware of the name of any 1,000-page act passed by Congress. They are almost universally named the opposite of what they actually accomplish...)

The ploy succeeded, and now millions of American workers are just beginning to wake up and realize, "Hey! We've been lied to!"

The real disaster begins October 1

Just how bad is Obamacare, really? It's so bad that Congress recently conspired with the White House to make sure all members of Congress are exempted from its core mandates. This means Congress won't be using the same health care system they have forced upon everyone else. How's that for integrity?

In just a few days, the nation is going to find out just what a mess Obamacare really is. October 1 is the day the so-called "Obamacare exchanges" are supposed to be open for business. It's also the day when the train wreck really begins, so expect all sorts of glitches, failures, privacy breaches and other electronic problems to appear.

In the exchanges that do work, you're going to find sky-high prices for coverage that, in many cases, double or triple what you've been paying. How's that for "affordable care?"

In an effort to cover up the reality of all this, the Obama administration has been cherry picking numbers from selected examples and publicizing those to try to deceive the country into thinking those are the rates everyone else will be paying, too. In reality, health insurance rates are going to shock the nation in a week or so, and at that point the false cover-up can no longer be maintained. Expect the mainstream media to pull another Orwellian sleight-of-mind trick and try to convince people that their doubled or triples health insurance rates are somehow "lower." (This trick might actually work, since most voters are utterly unable to do math anyway. Concepts of "higher" or "lower" may no longer be comprehended by the average American worker / voter.)

As I write this, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz is engaged in an all-night action in the U.S. Senate that looks a lot like a filibuster. He's demanding that Obamacare be de-funded as a condition for passing a higher debt ceiling for federal spending. The House has already voted to de-fund Obamacare, and it looks like Republicans and Democrats are once again playing chicken to see who will take the blame if the government really does get shut down.

The correct answer is that Republicans will be blamed because the mainstream media is still in Obama's back pocket even as he has pushed America's national debt way past $16 trillion. But because mainstream reporters can't do math and have no idea what a "trillion" really is, these mathematical realities don't compute with them, and the brush off the whole concept of national debt as if the laws of economics could be selectively ignored at will.

Obamacare is only the first wave of economic destruction headed our way

The bottom line in all this comes down to the following:

1) Obamacare is unleashing an economic nightmare across America. Workers are being punished across the board, losing their jobs, their work hours and their insurance policies. This is happening precisely because Obamacare makes it unaffordable for many employers to cover all the required health care costs. Welcome to the "part-time society!"

2) For most people -- but not everyone -- Obamacare insurance rates will be much higher than what they've been paying. Why is this the case? Because the Obamacare system preserves and protects the Big Pharma monopoly, shoveling billions of dollars into drug companies each year under the guise of "medical treatment." Instead of reducing health care costs, the Obamacare system is actually focused on helping Big Pharma profit from a sick-care system of ongoing chronic disease.

3) Ultimately, the financial end of America grows ever closer with each passing day. This system of unlimited debt, unlimited entitlements and unlimited spending will, of course, come to a catastrophic end. How do I know this? Because it is a simple fact of reality that all things which are unsustainable must, at some point, end. And when it comes to debt, the longer the denial, the more devastating the wake-up call.

Today, the federal government's out-of-control debt spending is, by all accounts, unsustainable. The only real question is how long they can keep the faith-based Ponzi scheme running before the world's central banks decide to start dumping U.S. treasury debt on the open market, at which point the house of cards implodes almost overnight.

4) Because of point #3, above, the final fact on all this is that Obamacare won't really matter in the long run anyway because the entire federal government is headed for a debt implosion which will very likely end in some sort of wholesale downsizing of government. The insanity you are witnessing right now is indicative of the final chapter of a failed government on the verge of collapsing into ruin. When that day arrives, expect short-term social chaos followed by long-term abundance as principles of economic liberty are finally restored.

Have a backup plan

Please understand there is no turning back for America now. Power-hungry politicians and a brain-dead mainstream media have held us all hostage to an agenda of planned economic destruction. At this point, there is no reform that can halt the inevitable implosion. The dominoes are falling and cannot be stopped. As much as I admire the backbone of real constitutional leaders in Washington like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, they are nonetheless too little, too late.

As I've said for the past year or so, the real focus for the rest of us should be how to survive the day that the federal food stamp program is turned off. The day the food stamp benefit cards stop working is the day a countdown is initiated that will end in riots rolling out across every major U.S. city. That countdown might be somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 - 9 days, give or take. It all depends on how hungry people get and whether the weather is hot or cold. (Hot weather leads to far more riots. Cold weather tends to keep people inside. The most dangerous scenario is economic collapse during the summer months.)

I urge you to realize that America is quite literally one database away from collapsing into social chaos. (The SNAP food stamp database.) When the funds are turned off from that database, and tens of millions of SNAP debit cards stop working across America, that's the day you'll understand just how much damage Obama and others like him have done to our nation.

Are You Prepared For An Extremely Bitterly Cold Winter? Solar Activity Is At A 100 Year Low-Mini Ice Age On the Way?

By Michael Snyder

Snowpocalypse - Photo by E4117Are you ready for bone chilling cold this winter?  The Old Farmer’s Almanac and other weather forecasters that rely on solar activity as a factor in their weather forecasts are projecting that this upcoming winter will be bitterly cold.  Solar activity is at a 100 year low, and even though we were supposed to be in the midst of a solar maximum this year, our sun has been eerily quiet.  So precisely what in the world is going on?  There have been other periods throughout history when solar activity has been extraordinarily quiet, and those times have corresponded with periods of extreme cold.  For example, the “Maunder Minimum” which stretched from 1645 to 1715 corresponded with the most bitterly cold period that the earth experienced in the last 1000 years.  So could we be heading toward another “mini-ice age”?  That is a question that some scientists are now beginning to ask.
Clearly, something unusual is happening with our sun.  The following is from a Universe Today article that was posted back in July
Our nearest star has exhibited some schizophrenic behavior thus far for 2013.
By all rights, we should be in the throes of a solar maximum, an 11-year peak where the Sun is at its most active and dappled with sunspots.
Thus far though, Solar Cycle #24 has been off to a sputtering start, and researchers that attended the meeting of the American Astronomical Society’s Solar Physics Division earlier this month are divided as to why.“Not only is this the smallest cycle we’ve seen in the space age, it’s the smallest cycle in 100 years,” NASA/Marshall Space Flight Center research scientist David Hathaway said during a recent press teleconference conducted by the Marshall Space Flight Center.
In a previous article, I noted that scientists are absolutely baffled by this.  So far, nobody can explain why this solar cycle is so weak
The Sun is acting weird. It typically puts on a pageant of magnetic activity every 11 years for aurora watchers and sungazers alike, but this time it overslept. When it finally woke up (a year late), it gave the weakest performance in 100 years.
The good news is that this kind of thing has happened before.
The bad news is that when solar activity slows down dramatically it tends to correspond with extremely cold weather as the Times of India recently explained…
Predictions that 2013 would see an upsurge in solar activity and geomagnetic storms disrupting power grids and communications systems have proved to be a false alarm. Instead, the current peak in the solar cycle is the weakest for a century.
Subdued solar activity has prompted controversial comparisons with the Maunder Minimum, which occurred between 1645 and 1715, when a prolonged absence of sunspots and other indicators of solar activity coincided with the coldest period in the last millennium.
Certainly solar activity is just one of the factors that influences our weather and many other factors are involved as well.
But it is undeniable that during the last “Little Ice Age” in Europe there were very few sunspots
Times of depressed solar activity seem to correspond with times of global cold. For example, during the 70-year period from 1645 to 1715, few, if any, sunspots were seen, even during expected sunspot maximums. Western Europe entered a climate period known as the “Maunder Minimum” or “Little Ice Age.” Temperatures dropped by 1.8 to 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit.
Conversely, times of increased solar activity have corresponded with global warning. During the 12th and 13th centuries, the Sun was active, and the European climate was quite mild.
And the lull in solar activity that we are experiencing now is causing many,including the Old Farmer’s Almanac, to project that we have a bitterly cold winter ahead of us…
The Farmers’ Almanac is using words like “piercing cold,” “bitterly cold” and “biting cold” to describe the upcoming winter. And if its predictions are right, the first outdoor Super Bowl in years will be a messy “Storm Bowl.”
The 197-year-old publication that hits newsstands Monday predicts a winter storm will hit the Northeast around the time the Super Bowl is played at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands in New Jersey. It also predicts a colder-than-normal winter for two-thirds of the country and heavy snowfall in the Midwest, Great Lakes and New England.
“We’re using a very strong four-letter word to describe this winter, which is C-O-L-D. It’s going to be very cold,” said Sandi Duncan, managing editor.
That doesn’t sound very fun.
So has the Old Farmer’s Almanac been accurate in the past?
According to their website, they claim an 80 percent accuracy rate…
The Old Farmer’s Almanac, first published in 1792 during the first term of George Washington, has always watched the weather. Our famous long-range weather forecasts are traditionally 80 percent–accurate.
We will see what happens this year.
For North America, the Almanac is predicting that we will see “below-normal temperatures” and “above-normal snowfall”…
According to the newest edition of North America’s oldest continuously published periodical, a decline in solar activity combined with ocean-atmosphere patterns in the Pacific and Atlantic will result in below-normal temperatures and above-normal snowfall during most of the winter across much of the United States.
“This winter is shaping up to be a rough one,” says Janice Stillman, editor of The Old Farmer’s Almanac. “Sweaters and snow shovels should be unpacked early and kept close by throughout the season. The good news is that the extra precipitation—which will fall as rain or snow depending where you are—will help with any drought issues left over from the summer.”
So if you like winter weather, it looks like this will be a good year for you.
For the rest of us, we will just have to wear lots of warm clothing and stay inside a lot.
But of course the much bigger story is what this could mean for the years ahead.
Are we now moving into a time similar to the “Maunder Minimum” when solar activity will be very low and global temperatures will decrease?
Could it be possible that Matthew Penn of the National Solar Observatoryand others are correct and that we are heading into a new mini-ice age?
Let’s certainly hope not, but without a doubt something very strange is happening to our sun.
Only time will tell what that means for our future.

More Americans estimated to die from hospital mistakes than from strokes and accidents combined

Going to the hospital is increasingly a risky proposition, considering that more Americans die from mistakes in the hospital than those killed by strokes and accidents combined.

A new study published in the Journal of Patient Safety estimates that between 210,000 and 440,000 patients annually don't make it out of hospitals because of some kind of preventable harm.

These figures eclipse those reported in earlier studies that blamed bad hospital care for 98,000 deaths (1999, Institute of Medicine) and 180,000 fatalities (2010, Office of Inspector General for Health and Human Services, which only focused on Medicare patients).

The new study, produced by John T. James, a toxicologist with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in Houston who runs an advocacy organization called Patient Safety America, means hospital deaths are now the third leading cause of death in the U.S., behind only heart disease (No. 1) and cancer (No. 2).

When asked about James' conclusions, a spokesman for the American Hospital Association told ProPublica that the organization was inclined to stick with the Institute of Medicine's lower number of 98,000 deaths.

However, ProPublica reached out to three prominent patient safety researchers about James' research, "and all said his methods and findings were credible," Marshall Allen wrote.

James, who got involved in patient safety after his teenage son died from what he claims was negligent hospital care by cardiologists in central Texas, said his numbers demonstrate the need to adopt a national patient bill of rights for hospitalized patients.

"All evidence points to the need for much more patient involvement in identifying harmful events and participating in rigorous follow-up investigations to identify root causes," he told ProPublica.

And just in case you are one of those poor government or media people who are not as well educated in history as the average American citizen, here is a comprehensive but by no means complete list of just how many times We The People have been made total fools of by the US Government and the corporate media.

When the USS Maine exploded in Havana harbor in 1898, the Captain, Charles Sigsbee, reported it as an accident resulting from an on-board fire. President McKinley and the newspapers of the day claimed it was an attack with a Spanish mine and told that lie to trick the American people into supporting war with Spain.

In 1975 the USS Maine was examined by a team of investigators led by Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, the father of America's nuclear navy, and their conclusion was that Captain Charles Sigsbee had been correct. The ship was destroyed by an on-board fire and there was no evidence of an external attack.

On May 7th, 1915, a German U-Boat U-20 torpedoed and sank RMS Lusitania, a passenger ship operated by the Cunard line.  Like many ships built during that time, Lusitania was heavily subsidized by the British Government and designed to be easily converted into a military auxiliary cruiser in time of war.  Although the United States was officially neutral, Germany declared that Lusitania was being used to transport military cargoes to England, which made her a legitimate target of war. Germany even went so far as to take out ads in the American newspapers warning civilians not to take passage on the Lusitania.

The ad placed by Germany warning passengers not to take passage on the Lusitania
The United States and Britain denied that Lusitania carried war materials, and the story of the Germans sinking a helpless passenger ship turned public opinion against Germany and allowed the United States government to convince the American people to enter WW1 against Germany.

In 2008, divers finally entered the hold of Lusitania, and proved once and for all that she had been smuggling military munitions to England. Germany had been legally in the right to sink her. The US Government and the media deliberately lied to the American people to trick them into WW1.

FDR claimed Pearl Harbor was a surprise attack. It wasn't. The United States saw war with Japan as the means to get into war with Germany, which Americans opposed. So Roosevelt needed Japan to appear to strike first. Following an 8-step plan devised by the Office of Naval Intelligence, Roosevelt intentionally provoked Japan into the attack. Contrary to the official story, the Japanese fleet did not maintain radio silence, but sent messages intercepted and decoded by US intercept stations. Tricked by the lie of a surprise attack, Americans marched off to war.

Honolulu newspaper warning of the attack on Pearl Harbor one week before it occurred. It was no surprise.
Documents declassified in 1994 revealed that Roosevelt spent 1941 following an 8 step plan to provoke Japan crafted by ONI Lt. Cmdr. Arthur H. McCollum, as a back door to war against Nazi Germany. Far from being a surprise, British agent Dusko Popov, code-named Tricycle, delivered a copy of the complete Japanese plan for the attack to the FBI in August of 1941. While the public was told that the Japanese fleet maintained radio silence, the reality is that they were broadcasting all the way across the ocean, and intercepted by the government's Station-H on windward Oahu (which intercepted Admiral Yamamoto's order to set sail for the attack on November 25th) and by Leslie Grogan, the civilian radio operator on the Matson steamship SS Lurline, who was able to plot the progress of the fleet towards Japan, and handed a map to the Hawaiian Navel Intelligence office when the Lurline arrived in Honolulu, three days before the attack. Roosevelt, along with ordering all the newer ships away from Pearl Harbor ahead of the attack, ordered a Navy training cruise, Exercise 191, that happened to lie directly in the path of the oncoming Japanese fleet, back to Pearl without explanation. Had Exercise 191 been allowed to continue, the japanese fleet would have been discovered and the planned attack thwarted.

Gulf of Tonkin Resolution
President Johnson lied about the Gulf of Tonkin to send Americans off to fight in Vietnam.

USS Maddox
On August 4th, 1964, an inexperienced sonar operator on the USS Maddox, rattled by an encounter with North Vietnamese patrol boats trying to keep US ships out of their territorial waters just two days previously, picked up the sounds of his own ship's screws and mistakenly interpreted them as incoming torpedoes. Although the Captain of the Maddox immediately reported the error up the chain of command, the initial report of an attack garnered headlines which President Johnson used to goad Congress into escalating the Vietnam War.

As for 9-11, there is ample evidence of deception. Here are just two out of many.
The official report does not mention WTC building 7 at all, which although not hit by an airplane, collapsed into its own footprint just like a controlled demolition.

The collapse of WTC Building 7.
One of the surviving videos actually captured the sound of the explosives.
Unedited video of WTC-7 collapse reveals sound of explosion as collapse starts at Penthouse at the 12 second mark
Here is an MP3 of the relevant portion, with the higher frequencies reduced by 10db.

Here is the audio spectrogram for the above, indicating the start of the explosion.
9/11/2001 radio broadcast: "...I was just standing there, ya know... we were watching the building [WTC 7] actually 'cuz it was on fire... the bottom floors of the building were on fire and... we heard this sound that sounded like a clap of thunder... turned around - we were shocked to see that the building was... well it looked like there was a shockwave ripping through the building and the windows all busted out... it was horrifying... about a second later the bottom floor caved out and the building followed after that... we saw the building crash down all the way to the ground... we were in shock."

Prior to 9-11 and since, no steel-framed building ever totally collapsed from a fire, and because WTC Building 7 contained Federal Government offices, it was built to much higher standards than the normal building codes in New York.
BBC, CNN, and Fox news all reported the collapse of WTC building 7 twenty six minutes BEFORE it happened.
The two screen shots below show WTC 7 behind the reporter.
Given that no steel-framed building had ever collapsed from fire prior to 9-11, how is it that Rudy Giuliani was warned to move his emergency staff out of the building because it was going to collapse? He is on video reporting being told the building would collapse ahead of time (and also on video later denying he ever said such a thing). There are videos, including in the Naudet Brothers' documentary "9-11" of police warning people to get away from Building 7 because of an impending collapse. Sounds like people were following a script!

2. On the day of 9-11, President Bush was at Booker Elementary School in Sarasota Florida, reading about pet goats.

Video shows White House aid Andy Card walking in to whisper to Bush that a second plane has hit the WTC, and Bush himself claimed that was the moment when he knew the nation was being attacked.

Bush also claimed to have seen the first impact into the WTC on TV, and said it twice, once on CNN. The second impact took place while Bush was inside the classroom reading about pet goats, so there is no possibility of confusion.
Obviously, the only way Bush could have seen the first impact was over a closed-circuit system, since video of the first impact, shot by the Naudet brothers for their firehouse documentary, was not broadcast until late that night.
In theory, there are an unknown number of hijacked planes in the air, flying over the eastern half of the United States, crashing into buildings. Bush's presence at Booker Elementary School was announced in the media three days before in the Sarasota Times, giving the planners of 9-11 ample time to target the President. Other media also announced his plan to visit the school ahead of time.

And there is an airport just 4 miles away from Booker Elementary School.

Everyone knew the nation was under terror attack form crashing airplanes, but we did not see the Secret Service take a single step to protect the President! They didn't grab Bush and toss him in that armored limo and start driving in a random direction to foil a possible inbound plane. From their inaction, it is clear the United States Secret Service KNEW FOR A FACT that President Bush was not a target that day. And the only way the Secret Service could know for a fact that the President was not a target is that they all knew what the targets were going to be.

Then there were the lies used to trick the US into war with Iraq.
First off was Tony Blair's "Dodgy Dossier", a document released by the Prime Minister that made many of the claims used to support the push for war. The dossier soon collapsed when it was revealed that much of it had been plagiarized from a student thesis paper that was 12 years old!
The contents of the dossier, however much they seemed to create a good case for invasion, were obsolete and outdated, having been plagiarized from a 12-year old student thesis paper.
Iraq lies: Mobile Bioweapons Labs

British balloon inflator system, presented to the public as a mobile biological weapons lab
Then there was the claim about the "Mobile biological weapons laboratories". Proffered in the absence of any real laboratories in the wake of the invasion, photos of these trailers were shown on all the US Mainstream Media, with the claim they while seeming to lack anything suggesting biological processing, these were part of a much larger assembly of multiple trailers that churned out biological weapons of mass destruction.

Illustration on how a balloon inflator is supposed to be part of a system to make weapons of mass destruction
The chief proponent of this hoax was Colin Powell, who presented illustrations such as this one to the United Nations on February 5th, 2003.
This claim fell apart when it was revealed that these trailers were nothing more than hydrogen gas generators used to inflate weather balloons. This fact was already known to both the US and UK, as a British company manufactured the units and sold them to Iraq.
Colin Powell's speech to the UN was itself one misstatement after another. Powell claimed that Iraq had purchased special aluminum tubes whose only possible use was in uranium enrichment centrifuges. Both CIA and Powell's own State Department confirmed that the tubes were parts for missiles Saddam was legally allowed to have. Following the invasion, no centrifuges, aluminum or otherwise were found.

Ariel photos with fictitious labels
Powell also claimed to the United Nations that the photo above showed "Decontamination Vehicles". But when United Nations inspectors visited the site after the invasion, they located the vehicles and discovered they were just fire fighting equipment.
Powell claimed the Iraqis had illegal rockets and launchers hidden in the palm trees of Western Iraq. None were ever found.
Powell claimed that the Iraqis had 8,500 liters (2245 gallons) of Anthrax. None was ever found.
Powell claimed that Iraq had four tons of VX nerve gas. The UN had already confirmed that it was destroyed. The only VX ever found were samples the US had left as "standards" for testing. When the UN suspected that the US samples had been used to contaminate Iraqi warheads, the US moved quickly to destroy the samples before comparison tests could be carried out.
Powell claimed that Iraq was building long-range remote drones specifically designed to carry biological weapons. The only drones found were short-range reconnaissance drones.
Powell claimed that Iraq had an aggregate of between 100 and 500 tons of chemical and biological warfare agents. Powell gave no basis for that claim at all, and a DIA report issued the same time directly contradicted the claim. No biological or chemical weapons were found in Iraq following the invasion.
Powell claimed that "unnamed sources" confirmed that Saddam had authorized his field commanders to use biological weapons. No such weapons were ever used by the Iraqis to defend against the invasion and, of course, none were ever found in Iraq.
Powell claimed that 122mm warheads found by the UN inspectors were chemical weapons. The warheads were empty, the corroded remains of weapons given to Iraq by the US to use against Iran, and showed no signs of ever having contained chemical weapons.
Powell claimed that Iraq had a secret force of illegal long-range Scud missiles. None were ever found.
Powell claimed to have an audio tape proving that Saddam was supporting Osama Bin Laden. But independent translation of the tape revealed Osama's wish for Saddam's death.

"That dot is a chemical weapons dump. Honest!"
Colin Powell's UN debacle also included spy photos taken from high flying aircraft and spacecraft. On the photos were circles and arrows and labels pointing to various fuzzy white blobs and identifying them as laboratories and storage areas for Saddam's massive weapons of mass destruction program. Nothing in the photos actually suggested what the blobby shapes were and during inspections which followed the invasion, all of them turned out to be benign.
In at least one case, the satellite Powell claimed had taken one of the pictures had actually been out of operation at the time. And many questioned why Powell was showing black and white photos when the satellites in use at the time over Iraq took color images.

Forged Niger uranium sales document
Another piece of evidence consists of documents which President Bush referenced as in his 2003 State of the Union Speech. According to Bush, these documents proved that Iraq was buying tons of uranium oxide, called "Yellow Cake" from Niger.
Since Israel had bombed Iraq's nuclear power plant years before, it was claimed that the only reason Saddam would have for buying uranium oxide was to build bombs.
This hoax fell apart fast when it was pointed out that Iraq has a great deal of uranium ore inside their own borders and no need to import any from Niger or anywhere else. The I.A.E.A. then blew the cover off the fraud by announcing that the documents Bush had used were not only forgeries, but too obvious to believe that anyone in the Bush administration did not know they were forgeries! The forged documents were reported as being "discovered" in Italy by SISMI, the Italian Security Service. Shortly before the "discovery" the head of SISMI had been paid a visit by Michael Ledeen, Manucher Ghorbanifar, and two officials from OSP, one of whom was Larry Franklin, the AIPAC Israeli spy operating inside the Pentagon's Office of Special Projects, from which many of the Iraq fabrications came.
In July, 2005, the Italian Parliament concluded their own investigation and named four men as suspects in the creation of the forged documents. Michael Ledeen, Dewey Clarridge, Ahmed Chalabi and Francis Brookes. This report has been included in Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation into the outing of Valerie Plame, and Paul McNulty, the prosecutor of the AIPAC spy case.
A recently declassified memo proves that the State Department reported the fact that the Niger documents were forgeries to the CIA 11 days before President Bush made the claim about the Niger uranium based on those documents.
In the end, the real proof that we were lied to about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction is that no weapons of mass destruction were ever found. That means that every single piece of paper that purported to prove that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction was by default a fraud, a hoax, and a lie. There could be no evidence that supported the claim that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction because Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction. In a way, the existence of any faked documents about Iraq's WMDs is actually an admission of guilt. If one is taking the time to create fake documents, the implication is that the faker is already aware that there are no genuine documents.
What the US Government had, ALL that they had, were copied student papers, forged "Yellow Cake" documents, balloon inflators mislabeled as bioweapons labs, and photos with misleading labels on them. And somewhere along the line, someone deliberatly decided, with malice aforethought, to put those misleading labels on those photos, to pretend that balloon inflators were portable bioweapons labs, and to pass off an outdated stolen student paper as a contemporary analysis.
The President of the United States and his Neocon associates lied to the people of the United States to send them off on a war of conquest.
Saddam's Nuclear Weapons did not exist.

In 2011, President Obama sent in covert operatives to create civil unrest in Libya, then lied by claiming it was a revolution to trick the American people into war with Libya (similar to the failed attempt to do the same in Iran in 2009.

Syria combines two of the lies, a covert overthrow masquerading as a revolution, coupled with unfounded claims of weapons of mass destruction.

The question is not whether the US Government is lying about Syria. History shows that the US Government lies all the time to trick Americans into wars. The claim that Iraq had nuclear weapons was not an isolated case, but business as usual. The US government lies about everything, and uses every trick they can (including obedient presstitutes and whorespondants in the corporate media to prop up failed lies and ridicule those who think for themselves) to trick the nation into war after war after war.
So, to recap..
If you think military intervention is a good idea..

Here's your rifle..

Here's your parachute..

We ran out of the desert camo, but here is a bright day-glo orange jumpsuit left over from Gitmo..

Watch your head climbing into that transport plane..

And we'll call whoever it is you are telling us needs to be invaded this week and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But given the very long history of the United States government and the corporate media lying and tricking us into wars, you will forgive We The People if we sit this one out and keep our children safe at home.

P.S. Just in case you want to demonstrate your commitment to this military action you endorse, here is the official enlistment form for the United States Armed Forces. Just fill it out, and email it back to me, and I will be happy to deliver it to the recruiting offices next time I head down to the shopping mall!
