Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Program

originalBy Derrick Broze

While much of the media has focused on the recent violence in Paris, Georgia, and San Bernardino, as well as the escalating conflicts in Iraq and Syria, another profound and troubling domestic issue seems to have been overlooked.

Indeed, the issue at hand was first reported on November 24th — and covered for roughly a day — before it was quickly forgotten in the daily barrage of news stories. But we should not be so quick to dismiss the possibility of a future president (maybe one with fascist leanings?) choosing to exercise “targeted killings” against the American public. This practice, of course, is embodied by the Obama administration’s program of assassinating individuals suspected of terrorism, also known as the “disposition matrix.”

The Washington Post first reported on the disposition matrix in 2012:

Over the past two years, the Obama administration has been secretly developing a new blueprint for pursuing terrorists, a next-generation targeting list called the ‘disposition matrix.’

The matrix contains the names of terrorism suspects arrayed against an accounting of the resources being marshaled to track them down, including sealed indictments and clandestine operations. U.S. officials said the database is designed to go beyond existing kill lists, mapping plans for the ‘disposition’ of suspects beyond the reach of American drones.

Although the matrix is a work in progress, the effort to create it reflects a reality setting in among the nation’s counterterrorism ranks: The United States’ conventional wars are winding down, but the government expects to continue adding names to kill or capture lists for years.

For the last four years, New York Times journalist Charlie Savage has waged a legal battle against the Obama administration, seeking to reveal the government’s legal justifications for assassinating terror suspects without a trial. Specifically, Savage sued the Obama administration in an attempt to obtain details about the murder of al-Qaeda affiliated cleric, Anwar al-Awlaki. Al-Awlaki was born in New Mexico and eventually found himself on the U.S. government’s radar under suspicion of terrorism.

Senator Graham Justifies Murdering Americans, Military Law, and Drone War with Eric Holder 3/6/13

https://www.facebook.com/events/20512…

NDAA 2012 (H.R. 1540) allows Americans to be classified as unlawful enemy combatants and indefinitely detained by the military, without access to an attorney or a trial by jury, on orders of the executive branch. Amendments to exclude American citizens were rejected by the Obama administration and senate vote (See numerous links below).

Our Congressmen have declared that America is part of the battlefield. As such, President Obama and congress believe the laws of war apply to us. The last time America was declared a military zone President Roosevelt authorized the internment of Americans with Executive Order 9066, issued February 19, 1942.

Sections 1021 and 1022 of the NDAA 2012 allow the indefinite military detention of Americans without due process. Congress needs to repeal sections 1021 and 1022. Call your congressmen today – contact and voting information below.

NDAA 2012 is unconstitutional. Sections 1021 and 1022 repeal the 1st,4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, and 14th amendments to the Constitution. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land and declares our right to due process. No law can supersede it. We have a right to our day in court with a jury of our peers.

U.S. Constitution Article III Section 2

The trial of all crimes, except in cases of impeachment, shall be by jury; and such trial shall be held in the state where the said crimes shall have been committed.

From Oath Keepers:

We will NOT obey any order to detain American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” or to subject them to trial by military tribunal.

One of the causes of the American Revolution was the denial of the right to jury trial, the use of admiralty courts (military tribunals) instead, and the application of the laws of war to the colonists. After that experience, and being well aware of the infamous Star Chamber in English history, the Founders ensured that the international laws of war would apply only to foreign enemies, not to the American people. Thus, the Article III Treason Clause establishes the only constitutional form of trial for an American, not serving in the military, who is accused of making war on his own nation. Such a trial for treason must be before a civilian jury, not a tribunal.

The international laws of war do not trump our Bill of Rights. We reject as illegitimate any such claimed power, as did the Supreme Court in Ex Parte Milligan (1865). Any attempt to apply the laws of war to American civilians, under any pretext, such as against domestic “militia” groups the government brands “domestic terrorists,” is an act of war and an act of treason.

http://oathkeepers.org/oath/2009/03/0…

Our Declaration of Independence also states our right to trial by jury.

Senator Graham said that America is part of the battlefield, and as such, Americans can be captured, interrogated, and killed with no due process. Senators Graham, Kyl, and McCain say the laws of war (military law) apply to us.

The senators argue the 2001 AUMF is in accordance with 1971 Non-Detention Act and allows Americans to be detained indefinitely without access to an attorney.

Non – Detention Act 1971:

No citizen shall be imprisoned or otherwise detained by the United States except pursuant to an Act of Congress

The senators say the act of congress that allows us to be detained indefinitely is the AUMF 2001. So, no, the paragraph below from NDAA 2012 Section 1021 (d) does not protect you. We are talking about the laws of war applied to American citizens, not criminal law, which includes due process. You can now be considered an unlawful enemy combatant.

(d) CONSTRUCTION.—Nothing in this section is in
tended to limit or expand the authority of the President
or the scope of the Authorization for Use of Military
Force.

Senator Kyl on the section D amendment:

Unfortunately, on December 1, when the defense bill was considered on the Senate floor, an amendment was approved that added language providing that the bill does not expand or contract “existing law or authorities.” I opposed this meaningless amendment.

http://files.meetup.com/1275333/Lette…

Senator Graham: Under domestic criminal law, we can’t hold someone indefinitely.The only way to do that legally is under the law of war.

http://files.meetup.com/1275333/Senat…

Senator Kyl – I ask unanimous consent to have printed in the Record a statement that makes very clear where military detention is necessary: to allow intelligence gathering that will prevent future terrorist attacks against the American people.

US senator says 4,700 killed in drone strikes

Revelation by Lindsey Graham marks the first time any US official has given a number

for drone fatalities.

Last Modified: 21 Feb 2013 12:06

Graham’s office insisted that the senator did not disclose any classified information [EPA]
A US senator has said that an estimated 4,700 people have been killed in America’s secretivedrone war, the first time a government official has offered a total number of fatalities caused

by nearly a decade of drone strikes, local media reported.Republican senator Lindsey Graham,

a staunch supporter of the drone raids, revealed the figure in a speech on Wednesday in his home

state of South Carolina.

“We’ve killed 4,700,” Graham was quoted as saying by the Easley Patch, a local website covering

the small town of Easley. “Sometimes you hit innocent people, and I hate that, but we’re at war,

and we’ve taken out some very senior members of al-Qaeda,” he told the local Rotary Club.

Graham’s office did not dispute his reported remarks, but said that he had not divulged any

classified information.

A spokesman told the AFP news agency that the senator “quoted the figure that has been

publicly

reported and disseminated on cable news.”

US officials have sometimes hinted at estimates of civilian casualties, but never referred to an

actual

total body count.

“Now this is the first time a US official has put a total number on it,” said Micah Zenko, a fellow

at the Council on Foreign Relations.

‘Tactical weapon’

If there was an official death toll estimate, it would be classified as secret, he added, raising the

prospect that Graham could have broken secrecy laws.

Several organizations have tried to calculate how many militants and civilians may have been

killed in

drone strikes since 2004 but have arrived at a wide range of numbers.

The figure cited by Graham matches the high end of a tally by the London-based Bureau of

Investigative Journalism. It says the number killed in drone strikes in Pakistan, Yemen and

Somalia is between 3,072 and 4,756.

The Washington-based New America Foundation says there have been 350 US drone strikes

since 2004, most of them during Barack Obama’s presidency. And the foundation estimates the

death toll at between 1,963 and 3,293, with 261 to 305 civilians killed.

US intelligence agencies and the White House have refused to divulge details about the strikes,

which are officially termed classified, but officials have suggested that few if any civilians have

been killed inadvertently.

In confirmation hearings this month for John Brennan, Obama’s nominee to lead the CIA, senator

Dianne Feinstein said she understood that the number of civilians killed was in the “single digits.”

Despite criticism from lawmakers and rights advocates who have questioned the secrecy and the

legality of the drone attacks, Graham defended Obama’s reliance on the unmanned, robotic aircraft.

“It’s a weapon that needs to be used,” Graham said. “It’s a tactical weapon. A drone is an unmanned

aerial vehicle that is now armed.”

The Obama administration has insisted the “targeted killings” are “a last resort” against those plotting

to attack the United States but who cannot be captured.

Opponents, however, say drone strikes amount to extrajudicial assassinations that sow resentment

among local populations and lack oversight by Congress or courts.

Cheney Admits that He Lied about 9/11

Created on Friday, 08 March 2013 18:45

 

What Else Did He Lie About?

The New York Times

In a documentary soon to appear on Showtime, “The World According to Dick Cheney,”

[Cheney said]  “I got on the telephone with the president, who was in Florida, and told him

not to be at one location where we could both be taken out.” Mr. Cheney kept W. flying

aimlessly in the air on 9/11 while he and Lynn left on a helicopter for a secure undisclosed

location, leaving Washington in a bleak, scared silence, with no one reassuring the nation in

those first terrifying hours.

“I gave the instructions that we’d authorize our pilots to take it out,” he says, referring to

the jet headed to Washington that crashed in a Pennsylvania field. He adds: “After I’d given

the order, it was pretty quiet. Everybody had heard it, and it was obviously a significant moment.”

When they testified together before the 9/11 Commission, W. and Mr. Cheney kept up a pretense

 that in a previous call, the president had authorized the vice president to give a shoot-down

order if needed. But the commission found “no documentary evidence for this call.”

In other words, Cheney pretended that Bush had authorized a shoot-down order, but Cheney

now admits that he never did … and Cheney acted as if he was the president on 9/11.

Cheney lied about numerous other facts related to 9/11 as well.  For example, Cheney:….

USA Has A History Of Attacking Themselves To Go To War!

RevolutionNewzRevolutionNewz

Uploaded on Feb 3, 2010

http://www.RevolutionNews.us — This film exposes how every major war in US history was based on a complete fraud with video of insiders themselves admitting it. Battleship Maine, Sinking of the Lusitania, Pearl Harbor, Gulf of Tonkin, USS Liberty (not covered in this clip), 911 … The film is “The New American Century”.

be sure to watch this video as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aepfsJ

This film goes in detail through the untold history of The Project for the New American Century with tons of archival footage and connects it right into the present.

This film exposes how every major war in US history was based on a complete fraud with video of insiders themselves admitting it. This film shows how the first film theaters in the US were used over a hundred years ago to broadcast propaganda to rile the American people into the Spanish-American War.

This film shows the white papers of the oil company Unocal which called for the creation of a pipeline through Afghanistan and how their exact needs were fulfilled through the US invasion of Afghanistan. This film shows how Halliburton under their “cost plus” exclusive contract with the US Government went on a mad dash spending spree akin to something out of the movie Brewster’s Millions, yet instead of blowing $30 million they blew through BILLIONS by literally burning millions of dollars worth of hundred thousand dollar cars and trucks if they had so much as a flat tire.

“A stunning film. It should be seen as widely as possible, in cinemas, bars, clubs, at meetings and, of course, through the internet. I’m sure the film will continue to be a source of debate and political education for many years.

Maybe until the war criminals have been brought to trial.” – Ken Loach

While Massimo Mazzuccos first political documentary, GLOBAL DECEIT (2006), focused on the long list of inconsistencies in the official version of the 9/11 attacks, THE NEW AMERICAN CENTURY explores the historical, philosophical and economic background that suggests a matrix for such events that is much closer to home than the so-called “Islamic terrorism”.

The film provides solid evidence for the true reasons behind the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, whose unfolding is described in chilling detail in a document called “Project for the New American Century”, published in the year 2,000, that seems to have served as the actual blueprint for such dramatic events.

Watch the entire film:

The Lusitania – Pretext for WW1
Pearl Harbour – Pretext for WW2
Gulf of Tonkin – Pretext for Vietnam War
USS Liberty – Israeli attack on USS Liberty – Pretext to bring the USA into Israel’s war with Egypt (Fail) resulting in 34 unnecessary US deaths and 141 casualties
9/11 Pretext for war with Iraq and Afghanistan
What’s next? USS Enterprise as a pretext for war? USA + Israel vs Iran + Russia + China? India vs Pakistan?
All the above with the exception of the USS Enterprise (as yet) have been false flag or attacks with foreknowledge used as pretexts for war with the exception of the USS Enterprise. This is how the USA gain public support for war with countries that have never posed a threat to America.

Iran haven’t acted as the aggressor with any country for over 200 years so why would they start now? But the USA and Israel’s war drums are beating.

When are America and Israel going to cease their endless aggression with the rest of the world? Even when they are not physically warmongering they are still quite happy bankrupting nations with their worthless fiat currency. Concerns about the soundness of U.S. credit and financial markets in 2008 led to tightening credit around the world and slowing economic growth in the U.S. and Europe.

Internment of Americans of Japanese Descent during WWII

Uploaded on Nov 26, 2011

Over 100,000 Japanese Americans were put into “internment camps” during WWII, a crucial yet often overlooked part of US history. We are joined by Madeleine Sugimoto, whose family was sent to Camp Jerome; this segment also features the paintings of her father, Henry Y. Sugimoto, documenting life inside the camps. From “The Broader Implications of War,” a series directed and co-produced by Gloria Messer for the Manhattan Neighborhood Network. Host and co-producer: Heather Wokusch.

Third Reich Began Persecutions
Years Before Laws Enacted in 1935

The Nuremberg Laws made official the Nazi persecution of the Jews, but the “legal” attack on the Jews actually began two years earlier.

After the Nazis took power in Germany in 1933, they became increasingly engaged in activities involving the persecution of the Jewish and other minority populations. They did it under the color of law, using official decrees as a weapon against the Jews.

In 1933 Jews were denied the right to hold public office or civil service positions; Jewish immigrants were denaturalized; Jews were denied employment by the press and radio; and Jews were excluded from farming. The following year, Jews were excluded from stock exchanges and stock brokerage.

During these years, when the Nazi regime was still rather shaky and the Nazis feared opposition from within and resistance from without, they did nothing drastic, and the first measures appeared, in relative terms, rather mild.

After Germany publicly announced in May 1935 its rearmament in violation of the Versailles Treaty, Nazi party radicals began more forcibly demanding that Hitler, the party, and the government take more drastic measures against the Jews. They wanted to completely segregate them from the social, political, and economic life of Germany. These demands increased as the summer progressed.

On August 20, 1935, the U.S. embassy in Berlin reported to the secretary of state:

To sum up the Jewish situation at the moment, it may be said that the whole movement of the Party is one of preparing itself and the people for general drastic and so-called legal action to be announced in the near future probably following the Party Congress to be held in Nuremberg beginning on September 10th. One has only to review the statements made by important leaders since the end of the Party’s summer solstice to realize the trend of affairs.
