Another Nuremberg in the Making? Our Intelligence Agencies Use Physicians for Torture!

In Activist Post, John Galt writes of a series of revelations by our American Intelligence Agencies which are employing Physicians to Torture our country's Detainees. Americans seem largely unaware that our country, supposedly founded upon principles of due process and individual rights, now appears to have been overthrown by Gestapo-like factions of government that uses trained physicians to carry out torture, in the supposed defense of this nation. Although what has been uncovered so far does not yet approach the scale of Nazi Germany or the Soviet Union's Gulag's, the methods are surprisingly similar. State sanctioned torture is a hallmark of tyranny, and inevitably leads to the collapse of the country that legalizes it. An AP exclusive report recently released, reveals that detainees in the "War on Terror" were whisked away from Gitmo before the American judicial system could account for them. The AP article states that the "transfer"allowed the US to interrogate the detainees in CIA black sites for two more years without allowing them to speak with attorneys or human rights observers or challenge their detention in US courts. Had they remained at the Guantanamo Bay prison for just three more months, they would have been afforded those rights. Please the entire sordid story at http://www.activistpost.com/2010/08

Dr. Thomas B. Manton, Gulf Human Rights Hero Murdered

Dr. Thomas B. Manton was apparently too much of a critic for British Petroleum, so the logical plan of those who needed him out of the way, was to hire a local thug in the correctional facility in which he was incarcerated. Dr. Manton had been leading the "Gulf Truth Movement", and the heat from his investigation was apparently too much for those with a lot of money to spend. Was BP behind this murder? Who knows! For the walls in the "Liberty Correctional Facility" are currently unable to talk, fearing that a smear campaign against them would lead to their defacement. Nevertheless, Dr. Manton is dead, and the person who murdered him is not talking. Please click on Jeff Rense's huge website to read the full story about this murder so foul, to cover up the despicable destruction of our gulf coast, and the murder of so many Americans who have no other option than to live there. Meanwhile, I recommend you stay away from our Gulf Coast, and the polluted sea life, which still struggle to survive in its polluted waters!


Is it true that the "New Perps" in the White House are Worse than the Old Ones??

Robert Sheer, whom I thank for this analysis of our problems with the Obama Administration, points us toward the banking meltdown, which has left enormous pain and political upheaval, read-suffering-in its wake, but it is indeed amazing that the folks who created this mess are rewarded with ever more important positions in our government. Yet the recent appointments of Gene Sperling and William Daley, key Wall Street-connected perps of this crisis,,to the most critical positions in the Obama White House have not generated much controversy. The justification for the media's indifference appears to be that the new appointees can hardly be worse than the hustlers they replaced. From the beginning, the Obama administration has been flooded with veterans of the Clinton White House, who pushed their agenda of radical deregulation that Wall Street had long sought, and were rewarded with fat fees from the big banks when they left government. Sperling was a key component, back in the Clinton Treasury Department, of the deregulation of the financial industry, that precipitated this crisis, but his then-boss, Lawrence Summers, the man he will now replace as Barack Obama's top economic adviser, was certainly even more culpable. Both were well rewarded for their efforts. Summers received $8 million in Wall Street compensation back in 2008, while he was an adviser to candidate Obama, and at the same time, he also got $2.2 million from his various consulting activities, mostly for banks that ran into trouble.

Even Lost Wars Make our Corporations Rich

Chris Hedges, having been there, done that, knows enough about wars to understand that power does NOT rest with the electorate, nor does it reside with either of the two political parties. It is NOT arbitrated by a judiciary that protects us from predators. Power rests with corporations, and these gain a very lucrative profit from war, even wars that we have no chance of winning. All polite appeals to the "formal" systems of power will NOT end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. We must physically obstruct the "war machine", or accept a role as its accomplice. The moratorium on anti- war protests in 2004 was designed to help elect the Democratic presidential candidate, Senator John Kerry. It was a foolish and humiliating concession. Kerry snapped to salute like a windup doll, when he was nominated, and talked endlessly about victory in Iraq, assuring the country that he would not have withdrawn from Fallujah, but by the time George W. Bush was elected for another term, we had another sad lesson in incredulity. The Democratic Party, once in the majority, funded and expanded the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and Barack Obama in 2008 proved to be yet another advertising gimmick for the corporate and military elite. All our efforts to work within the political process to stop these wars have been abject and miserable failures. While we wasted time, tens of thousands of Iraqi, Afghan and Pakistani civilians, as well as US soldiers and Marines were traumatized, maimed and killed.


NOW, the Morons in our "Government" Want War against China!!

"Our" propaganda assault against China stinks to high heaven, though the "average" American hasn't bought in to this false advertising "yet"! But selling wars takes time, and "our" arms manufacturers are already licking their chops about the possible profits from the pain and suffering of others. Nevertheless, the average American has not bought into this false advertising "YET". So the big lie will be repeated until its roots are deeply sunk into the American psyche: China, says the US government, is a threat that needs to be "dealt with." Unfortunately for our government, which has a nasty habit of spreading these lies, China has no military bases outside its borders, nor has it started wars in other countries, while our United States has made a hobby of war, probably to satisfy the production needs of our giant military weapons industry. Our US, under Obama, will spend $725 billion in 2011, while China will spend, by comparison, a measly $80 billion. Let's compare our human rights records, and compare ourselves to China: Has Clinton forgotten that Guantanamo Bay remains open, filled with tortured people who are charged with no crimes? Has she forgotten that Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan continues to deny the International Red Cross access to its "black site" detention center, since they would discover the torture chambers described by ex-detainees? I rest my case!!


Is Our Country Stupid - or What - Washington To Rearm Georgia For New Conflicts??

Last time "Georgia" fought the Russian Army, they got their ass kicked BIG-TIME !! So now these idiots are going to try again?? If there is any sanity remaining in our government, someone should put a stop to this foolishness!!Let's pretend that the "Pentagon" is still capable of identifying Russian military capabilities, and that Obama is still in charge! Has Obama asked the right questions of his generals, and have our generals approached him with the truths of such a hazardous event, or are they all on psychological drugs? Recent reports in the Russian news media have detailed plans by the US to provide the Mikheil Saakashvili government in Georgia with tens of millions of dollars worth of anti-aircraft and anti-tank weapons. The Russian government's Itar-Tass news agency and Voice of Russia have confirmed the arms package with officials from the Russian special services and the Joint Staff of the armed forces. An official from the second source responded to the proposed arms sale by stating: "We deeply regret that the reset of the US-Russian relations declared by the administration of Barack Obama does not change anything in Washington's military support for the Georgian leadership, which began the war in the Caucasus in August 2008, and which is continuing to mastermind aggressive plans against the independent states of Abkhazia and South Ossetia." The Georgian- South Ossetian- Russian war of 2008 was preceded by Georgian artillery barrages against the South Ossetian capital of Tskhinvali on August 1, which killed six people including a Russian peacekeeper stationed there. The defense rests!

Our Government's Modern Methods of Mind Control

Good News, Sport Fans: There are now at least ten Modern Methods of Mind Control, and here they are: 1.) Education. This is the most obvious, yet still remains the most insidious. It has all ways been a would-be dictator's ultimate fantasy to 'educate' naturally impressionable children, thus it has been a central component to Communist and Fascist tyrannies throughout history. (How about our CIA's relationship with our Nobel-Prize winning president Obama? To get you started along the right path, I recommend Charlotte Iserby's book, "The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America", which you can download free as a PDF version. Her excellent work lays bare the role of Globalist foundations in shaping a future intended to produce servile drones lorded over by a fully educated, aware elite class of super-humans and their undoubtedly worthy progeny!! 2.) Advertising and Propaganda. Edward Bernays (and, no, he did not invent a sauce which bears his name), but he has been cited as the inventor of the consumerist culture that was designed primarily to target people's self-image (or lack thereof) in order to turn a want into a need. This was initially envisioned for products such as cigarettes, for example, but I quit anyways, when I noticed, while serving as Advisory Team Leader for the Mountain Tribesmen at Ngo Trang, (a small village north of Kontum), that the tribesmen, which smoked only casually, could move like mountain goats during my operations, while I had a hard time keeping up with them. At the time, we were given free cigarettes by our wonderful army, and I thank them for it! But I digress: Media, print, movies, television, and cable news can now work seamlessly to integrate an overall message which seems to have the ring of truth because it comes from so many sources simultaneously. When one becomes attuned to identifying the main message, one will see this imprinting everywhere. 3.)Predictive Programming. Many still deny that predictive programming is real. I would invite anyone under that delusion to examine to examine the range of documentation put together by Alan Watt, and come to any other conclusion. Predictive programming has its origins in predominately elitist Hollywood, where the big screen can offer a BIG vision of where society is headed. Just look back at the books and movies which you thought were far-fetched, or "science fiction", and take a close look at society today! For a detailed breakdown of specific examples, Vigilant Citizen is a great resource that will probably make you look at "entertainment" in a completely different light. There's more, a LOT MORE, so please go to http://www.activistpost.com/2010/12/10-modern-methods-of-mind-control for the details.


Bombs Make No Moral Distinction Where They Fall

Robert Fisk was in Mannheim for its annual film festival, when he observed "Armadillo", a documentary on a Danish NATO unit in Afghanistan. On the screen, there were real bullets whizzing past one of the bravest directors of photography in the world, real soldiers falling wounded, and one with a Wilfred Owen pallor of death on his face. That soldier survived, but others did not. After storming a Taliban position, the Danes find at least Afghans, apparently still alive. Then, there is a crack of gunfire, and they are all dead: "We eliminated them in the most humane way possible," said one of the Danish says afterward, right there on the soundtrack. The word "war crimes", one of the Danes says afterwards, right there on the soundtrack. Robert Fisk is stunned, and the word "war crimes" comes to mind. Then, Fisk stumbles out into the cold afternoon to walk back into his hotel, past the 19th-century "Kunsthalle", and its gashes on the red stone walls, showing damage from the British fire raid of 1940, or the first attempts to raze the city on 16 April 1943, or the American raids of 1944. Well protected with underground bunkers, only 1,700 Germans were killed there, a mere ).6 per cent of its residents. War crimes? The winner in a war is impervious to those things - after all, he was on the "winning side."


UN Human Rights Council condemns Israeli human rights violations!

The United Nations Human Rights Council on Wednesday condemned Israel for 'summary executions' of passengers 0n board of the aid ships to Gaza. UNHRC approved by a majority a Resolution endorsing the critical findings of a UN fact-finding mission of Israeli attack on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla in May. The resolution, introduced by members of the Islamic Conference, was adopted by a 30-1 vote, with the United States, as usual, voting against it, and 15 countries, including all of the council's European members, abstaining. The Council endorsed the conclusions contained in the report of the mission, and called upon all concerned parties to ensure its immediate implementation. It also recommended that the General Assembly consider the report of the Mission. Following the vote, Turkish Ambassador to UN Mustafa Oguz Demiralp said that the resolution represented 'concensus against those who seek immunity despite all the unlawful acts they have committed in defiance of the council.' The Human Rights Council established a three-member committee of independent experts on June 2 to investigate violations of international law in an Israeli commando raid May 31 on the Mavi Marmara, an aid ship from Turkey, in international waters. Nine Turkish activists, including Furgan Dogan, a 19-year-old Turkish-American, were killed in the raid. In its 56-page report, the fact-finding mission said there was clear evidence to support prosecution against Israel!!

Did Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. have a dream to go to war?

"BraveNew World Foundation" has disputed the absurd claim by our "Pentagon", that, if King were alive today, he might support the war in Afghanistan. Nothing could be further from the truth: When he was alive, Dr. King said VERY clearly: "A true revolution of values will lay hand on the world order and say of war: "This way of settling differences is not just. A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs is approaching spiritual death." More than 10,000 people died in the Afghanistan War last year alone. This year, our government plans to spend $107 billion on the war. We believe that if Dr. King were alive today, he would repeat his admonition to US polcymakers on their responsibility: "I speak as one who loves America. The great initiative in this war is ours. The initiative to stop it must be ours." Martin Luther King, Jr. was a national hero who called on us to have the moral courage to stop another war that wasn't making us safer, and that wasn't worth the cost. Sergeant Brown, the gentle and highly trained medic of my Advisory Team in Ngo Trang, north of Kontum was one of Dr. King's disciples. Every night, he would read the worn-out bible which his family had sent him to seek solace after the insane butchery around us. A scrawny and tiny chicken, which he had nursed to health with Army furnished Tetracycline, became one of his constant companions. Life, no matter how small and, to the un-initiated unimportant, was always worth saving, but most of all, he saved my team, and me, from becoming too emotionally hardened in that terrible conflict, which often succeeded in making us mere robots in an evil cause.


The War Around Us

About war much has been written.
More must yet be said by those who saw them die,
so that the dead may rest, and sight be gained,
to see war for what it was, and is:

War is not fighting, though fighting's what we see,
nor is it death, for death is but it's end.
It is the rancor of disunited hearts,
the death of love, the end of hope.

The war around us echoes in our hearts, and grants it life.
Once, mortals dared to tame this ancient beast, and yet it thrives.
Each age must fight this force again, or pay its price!
Wolfgang P. May - http://home.earthlink.net/~wam/
