What if they had a 4th of July party and no one showed up?

What if – we didn’t go to the parades, didn’t have the normal 4th of July gluttonous fair, didn’t light off a single firework, and didn’t watch A Capitol Fourth?

Is it possible that if we, the people, did not participate in celebrating Independence Day all across America that our government might take notice and worry just a little bit?

Independence Day is the day we celebrate having spectacularly, but at great cost of blood and treasure, liberated ourselves from the shackles of Great Britain.

And why on earth would we not celebrate this day you ask?  Because Independence Day is a shadow of its former patriotic, magnificent self.  Both political parties would probably agree on that, but for differing reasons.

A progressive would probably tell you that like the Constitution and Bill of Rights, they have all outlived their usefulness.

A conservative would tell you that we have forgotten our pledge to be constantly vigilant in our commitment to freedom, liberty and limited government.  The unintended consequences/price – we now have a new king.

What if – what if we stood up and outed the lie that we are a free people?

By so doing, we can shatter the illusion that this government operates with anything remotely approximating our consent. This is absolutely essential. The 4th of July pantomime requires that we deny the obvious – that we instead pretend we’re free people living in a free country; one in which the government is accountable to the people, one in which the government is limited by law. One in which people can’t simply be dragooned into prisons without due process, held incommunicado, tortured. A country with a president who doesn’t have kill lists – or use the instruments of state power to punish and intimidate his political opponents. One in which citizens must be suspected of a crime before their personal correspondence is filched through and recorded for later use against them. One in which a traveler is free from arbitrary and random searches of his person and effects. One in which the attorney general of the United States isn’t able to get away with providing guns to gangs or brazenly lie about his use of the power of his office to go after political “enemies” rather than pursue justice.
All these things are everyday realities. And the reality is that the America we once celebrated on the Fourth of July is gone, replaced by something dark and ominous.

It is painfully obvious – so why pretend otherwise?

More to the point, why should we celebrate this ugly transformation?

I hope you will continue reading every word HERE.
I am guilty, guilty, guilty of participating in the 4th of July celebration for many years and have loved every minute of every bit of it.  I am also guilty of having taken my eye off what was pledged that day and am therefore, as one citizen, responsible for where we are now.

My pledge today, to America, is – I will no longer partake of the lie that we are a free people by celebrating this upcoming Independence Day.  And I do solemnly swear to all those long gone who fought for this country and who fight today – to do everything in my power to help restore what we once were.

I got this answer wrong!

The question is – Who fought in the 1776 Revolutionary War?

My answer, the British and the Americans.  WRONG!  I knew the answer of course but I still answered it incorrectly for lack of thinking clearly.  

This is a great little five minute history lesson.

Fans for sale by PatriotUSA and yes this is a real post

Many who tread here know that I am for lack of better words, an orthopedic wrecking yard. The details at this point matter but no need to mention anything save for three spinal fusions and eight right shoulder surgeries and PatriotUSA is banged up. The end result of the mentioned surgeries is that I cannot really work now and may not be able to return to work. My part time job of three plus years I had with the State has officially ended and me and my family are pretty damn broke. Extremely so. There is a silver lining to the above, so please keep reading. This post remain up top for a few days.

One of the really good  things that happened  back in 2000 was I got into buying, selling, collecting, restoring, servicing antique and vintage electric fans. This was when I was recovering from spinal fusion #1. I have liked electric fans since I was a little kid. Fast forward to today and I have over 150 fans in my inventory. I have started selling fans again and some of them are below that I have listed on Ebay. I am a perfectionist in most things and any fan I sell has been THOROUGHLY overhauled, restored, completely serviced and any fan I sell MUST pass a 20 hour bench test of continuous running. My oldest fan is a 1912 General Electric and the best fans were and still are Emerson. I have sold over 175 fans. I have NEVER had one complaint, nor a fan returned for any reason. I prefer to keep the fans in fine ORIGINAL condition when possible. I have many in blade sizes from 8" to 16". A lot of these are works of art, the craftsmanship is just stunning. I have my personal collection of Emerson's that are not for sale, at least not right now. Many of these are cast iron with brass blades and cages.

Name of my business is Pacific Time and Breeze Company. My Ebay name is Westclox426.

If you need a fan, consider an older vintage, antique fan. They will run forever if properly serviced and maintained. We use them year round here at Casa Homer. A website and Facebook page dedicated to my fans is in the works, thanks to a kind and generous friend.
If you are interested, let me know in the comments, give me an idea of what you might like and I can get you some pictures.

Report on Campus Anti-Semitism

Gary Fouse

Hat tip Israel National News (Arutz Sheva) and JJ (T.E.A.M. San Diego)

Jerry Sobol, writing in Arutz Sheva, describes the problem of campus anti-Semitism in the US. Not surprisingly, most of it is focused on the University of California campuses and describes specific  incidents, many of which I am familiar with.



In the interest of full disclosure, Tammi Rossman-Benjamin and Leila Beckwith are friends and colleagues, with whom I have worked on this issue. I have also had the pleasure of meeting and corresponding with Jessica Felber. They are all mentioned in the above report.

I should also mention that for the past few years, the Muslim Student Union, when they hold their anti-Israel week every May at UC Irvine, always open with a preamble, if you will, that they are not anti-Semitic just anti-Zionist. They also make it a point to bring in speakers who are anti-Israel Jews. The problem is that some of the speakers they bring in often make anti-Jewish remarks or have a previous history of anti-Semitic rhetoric.  I refer specifically to Amir Abdel Malik Ali, Abdul Alim Musa, and Mohammed al Asi, all of whom have spoken  at UCI on behalf of the MSU over the years-and in my presence.

Is there a problem of anti-Semitism on US college campuses? You bet there is. Is it being ignored or swept under the rug by university administrators and the media? You bet it is.

The TRUTH aqainst the sons of Obama-Light of TRUTH Is Crossing The Tree Tops

To any and all who doubted, laughed at me, us, those who decided to make the stand for truth, to stand in the gap for George Zimmerman and AGAINST the blatant racism of the Black Grievance Industry, against the sons of Obama (spit), against the plantation system pushed by the likes Sharpton, Jackson, Crump, Julison, Gutman...you are having your teeth bashed in by the truth. Now even the MSM has said that The Last Refuge, The Conservative Treehouse, a ragtag bunch of CONSERVATIVES who seek nothing but the truth in all matters, has changed the face of the George Zimmerman trial with 18 months of relentless pursuit of the TRUTH. The truth is their passion at TLR, nothing more, nothing less. Pedal to the metal until there is nothing left of those who would lie, scheme and cheat their way, just to make money. Political correctness is being shown as truly evil. TM is being exposed for what he was, bully, thug, thief, drug dealer. He is not the baby faced angelic kid portrayed by the, MSM, BGI, the racists like Obama and Sharpton. No time to ease off or slow down. Run the BGI over, back over them with the truth and nothing but the truth.

As stated in the post below: "This is not a time to gloat or be prideful, this is the exact moment when you are empowered to chase the shadow dwellers while carrying a sword reflecting the blinding light of truth." 

A special, very special Thank You and tip of the hat must go to Sundance, who is the person responsible for the existence, building of, and relentless pursuit of the truth in all matters but especially for seeking, researching, requesting and delivering the TRUTH over the last 18 months regarding George Zimmerman at The Conservative Treehouse. Sundance has done a masterful job and will continue to do a masterful job in seeking the truth. The Last Refuge is blessed with the finest group of administrators I have encountered at ANY site. The people who live at TLR are fondly called TREEPERS. You can count me, call me a TREEPER as I have been one for over two years now. Some very intelligent, serious minds make up TLR and I do NOT count myself in that very intelligent group. I am a very serious thinker, one who is driven and supported by my foundation of morals, values, honesty, an extreme of common sense, ethics and a very strong compass built upon Jesus and the Founding Fathers.

And yes, for those who seek the truth, so much more is yet to come!

Sorry about being AWOL from here. I am spending A LOT of time out in my shop working on fans for my website. I have always wanted to become a master craftsman and fans are my passion. So this is it, a line has been crossed. How I will do this with my back? The pain is horrific, I keep falling but I know this is what I WANT TO DO for a living. I do not care about making a lot of money, just being able to take care of my family is all. All things are POSSIBLE with Jesus. No worries about this site or me. Neither one is going any place.

Shout Outs – The Sunrising Light of TRUTH Is Crossing The Tree Tops…..

Congratulations to YOU.     Because of your efforts the light of a sun rising truth is moving steadily across the ground, and through the tree tops.   After 18 months of painstaking research, and righteous push back to bring forth the light of truth, the media is now paying attention.


As MSM reporters begin using google to research the people behind their articles “there you are”, the gold mine of all dot connections, The Last Refuge.   It’s wonderful to see their eye lids peel back as they finally begin to explore the same pathways we have all walked and understand with comfortable familiarity.

The funniest quote I have ever read about this case, and our research upon it, was:
Well, I don’t want to say too much else about this stuff – But I will say:   you damn sure don’t want those CTH folks on your ass…
From a Police Officer (citation omitted purposely)

The Washington Times follows the story around Benjamin Crump

Pat Dollard picks up on the corruption within the Miami-Dade School Police Dept

Jack Cashill writes up another expose’.  This time on Matt Gutman

The Times also picks up on the REAL Tracy Martin

(left to right) Tracy Martin, Benjamin Crump, Brandi Green, Natalie Jackson, Stephen Martin
(left to right) Tracy Martin, Benjamin Crump, Brandi Green, Natalie Jackson, Stephen Martin

…. And yet there is so much more to come out.

So, so, so much more……  This is not a time to gloat or be prideful, this is the exact moment when you are empowered to chase the shadow dwellers while carrying a sword reflecting the blinding light of truth.

It was wonderful to see Alicia Stanley on Anderson Cooper 360.   Her full story is one which shows how self-centered, manipulative, hate filled, and intentionally self-serving the entire construct of the false narrative actually was, and still is.

Tracy Martin 2

While we may diverge in many aspects from Alicia Stanley, one thing we are in total agreement on is how incredibly false the entire life story of Trayvon Martin was in the telling - from the mind and manipulation of Ryan Julison.

She absolutely represents the biggest risk to the Scheme Team dreams of a lucrative payday.  Stanley was, for all intents and purposes, Trayvon’s real mother.  [We will write upon this aspect next].

More Beheadings in Syria-Why We Should Stay Out

Gary Fouse

Hat tip Atlas Shrugs and Live Leak

Viewer warning

Another day in Syria; another day of beheadings. The al Qaeda-connected group carrying out this gruesome act is reportedly one of those groups we will be providing arms to -or at least knives.



According to Atlas Shrugs, there are Russian voices in that tape, apparently with accents indicating they come from Chechnia or Daghestan. Remember the Brothers Tsarnaev? They got into our country and are not only now known as the Boston bombers, but are suspects in an earlier murder of three Jews in Boston, whose throats were slashed.

And note the presence in the video of so many children. They are the next generation. Are we going to bring them to the US as "refugees" also? How many Americans will die in that cause?

Once again, I ask the question: What if these three men seen in the video were American troops-your son. your husband, your father, your brother? Would you still want us to send troops into that region? Granted, Bashar Assad is a horrible dictator and his troops have killed tens of thousands of innocents in Syria. So how many American soldiers are you willing to lose in this fashion to get rid of Assad?

"Oh", but you say, "those fighters wouldn't do that to us. They are on our side."

So were the killers in Benghazi, we thought.

So shoot me and get over it. There is much at stake.

Like most Americans, I saw a photograph that went viral on the internet the day Boston was closed down by martial law.  A policeman told by a young mother that her child desperately needed milk, went out, found it, and brought it back.

Running thru my mind was - how the heck did he find two half-gallons of milk when the whole city was shut down except for donut  shops?

For the purpose of the point I want to make here, it matters not a whit to me that this story may be entirely true.  The alleged mother, Trish Sommers pleaded with an officer for milk for her son.  That alleged Brooklyn police officer, John Bradley, found milk for that child, good on him.  What matters to me is this -

Had a PR firm devised a subliminal message to America of the nanny state role it is trying (successfully we all know) to establish there could have been nothing more impressionable than this photo.

This is another of those “government is going to have to step in” moments.  It is called psyops.  We will take care of it!  We will take care of all of the approved aspects of your needs.  Your housing, clothing, finances, schooling, transportation - your damn I-phone, the air you breath.  Your child's milk!  It is for the greater good.  A very, very clear message IMO.

We are from the government - and we will take care of everything!

Ann Barnhardt on Cowardice and Courage

From Ann Barnhardt's post dated 6/10 she quotes Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn:

To stand up for truth is nothing. For truth, you must sit in jail. You can resolve to live your life with integrity. Let your credo be this: Let the lie come into the world, let it even triumph. But not through me. 

The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie. One word of truth outweighs the world. 

In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations. 

If I were asked today to formulate as concisely as possible what was the main cause of the ruinous revolution that swallowed up some 60 million of our people, I could not put it more accurately than to repeat: ‘Men had forgotten God; that is why all this has happened.’
A decline in courage may be the most striking feature that an outside observer notices in the West today. The Western world has lost its civic courage . . . . Such a decline in courage is particularly noticeable among the ruling and intellectual elite, causing an impression of a loss of courage by the entire society. 

And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.

Four Arabic words every Infidel must know

Truthsite has the story:

Hat Tip: 1389 Blog

If you read or share just one internet article today, let it be this one. We in the West have almost no concept of the fact of how there is no lie too outrageous, offensive or incredible such that a Muslim will not tell it.

— Zenster —

In 539 BC, King Belshazzar of Babylon saw a dismembered hand-written four prophetic words on the wall. This "handwriting on the wall" was finally interpreted by the prophet Daniel as predicting the fall of the kingdom. He was right. Babylon fell to the Medes-Persians that very night.

Like the “handwriting on the wall” that Prophet Daniel had interpreted, there are four Arabic words, which could lead to submission of the entire world to Islam, if non-Muslims do not fully understand their meaning and implications. Those words are taqiyya, tawriya, kitman and muruna.

Each of these words describes a different style of deception used by Muslims when discussing Islam or their activities as Muslims.

Mohammed famously said, “War is deceit.” (Sahih Bukhari, Vol. 4, Book 52, Nr.268). The Quran boasts that Allah is the “master of all scheming” (Quran 13:42) and that he is “profound in his machinations” (Quran 8:30). Western civilizations are not accustomed to dealing with people, who have developed deception into an art form. Knowledge is power, and the best way to combat the Islamist agenda is to say, “We are used to your lying. Knock it off!”


Taqiyya is defined as dissimulation about ones Muslim identity. It comes from the verse in the Quran that says, “Let believers not make friends with infidels in preference to the faithful – he that does has nothing to hope for from Allah – except in self-defense (illaan tattaqoo minhum tuqatan (Quran 3:28).

This “self-defense” justifies dissimulation.Islamic Sharia Law provides, “When it is possible to achieve an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible, and lying is obligatory if the goal is obligatory.”

Reliance of the Traveller. Section r8.2 PERMISSIBLE LYING. The Prophet said: "He who settles disagreements between people to bring about good or says something commendable is not a liar"). Examples include lying to protect Islam or a Muslim.


Tawriya is defined as concealing, and it could be called “creative lying” or where appropriate "lying under oath". It is OK to break the intent of the oath, as long as you don’t break the letter of the oath.

Reliance of the Traveller. Section o19.1 If one swears "I will not eat this wheat," but then makes it into flour or bread (and eats it), one has not broken one's oath.

Reliance of the Traveller. Section o19.5 When a person swearing an oath about something (in the future, affirming or denying that it will occur) includes the expression "in sha' Allah ("if Allah will"), before finishing the oath, then the oath is not broken in any event if he thereby intends to provide for exceptions.

How does this work? Suppose someone protests that Surah 1 of the Quran demeans Christians and Jews, because it is a supplication Muslims make to Allah seventeen times a day to keep them from the path of“those with whom God is angry” and “those who have lost their way”.

A Muslim might respond, “Surah 1 never mentions Jews or Christians.” He is practicing tawriya, because while Surah 1 does not mention Jews and Christians by name, but he knows full-well that the words “those” refer to Jews and Christians.

Another example would be when a Muslim responds to your greeting of “Merry Christmas!” He might say, “I wish you the best.” In your mind,you think he has returned a Christmas greeting. In actuality, he has expressed his wish for you to convert to Islam; he wishes the best for you which, in his view, is becoming a Muslim.


Kitman is characterized by someone telling only part of the truth. The most common example of this is when a Muslim says that jihad really refers to an internal, spiritual struggle. He is not telling “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth”, as witnesses are sworn to do in U.S. courts.

Often, kitman results in a gross distortion of the truth. In the example given, the Quran uses jihad and its derivatives 59 times. Of those, only 16 (27%) could be considered “internal” with no object as the target of the struggle based on the context of the surah.

Another common form of kitman is to quote only the few peaceful passages from the Quran, knowing full-well that that passage was later abrogated by a more militant,contradictory verse.

Here is an example: “There is no compulsion in religion” (Quran 2:256)

“Are they seeking a religion other than Allah’s, when every soul in the heavens and earth has submitted to Him, willingly or by compulsion?”(Quran 3:83)

Another example:Permission to take up arms is hereby given to those who are attacked, because they have been wronged.” (Quran 22:39)

When the sacred months are over, slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them and lie in ambush everywhere for them.” (Quran 9:5)

And another example: „Anyone who kills a human being... it shall be as though he has killed all mankind. ...If anyone saves a life, it shall be as though he has saved the lives of all mankind...“ (Quran 5:32)

„The punishment of those who wage war against Allah... that they should bemurdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned;“ (Quran 5:33)


Hillary and Huma

Muruna means using “flexibility” to blend in with the enemy or the surroundings. The justification for this kind of deception is a somewhat bizarre interpretation of Quran 2:106, which says, “If we abrogate a verse or cause it to be forgotten, We will replace it by abetter one or similar.”

Thus, Muslims may forget some of the commands in the Quran, as long as they are pursuing a better command. Muslims striving to advance Islam, therefore, can deviate from their Islamic laws in order to cause non-Muslims to lower their guard and place their trust in their Muslim counterpart.

At times, Muslims practice muruna in the same way a chameleon changes colors to avoid detection. Muslims will sometimes shave off their beards, wear western clothing, or even drink alcohol to blend in with non-Muslims. Nothing is more valuable these days to the Islamists than a blue-eyed Caucasian Muslim willing to engage in terrorism.

Another common way of using muruna is for a Muslim to marry a non-Muslim or to behave like a non-Muslim so their true agenda will not be suspected.

The 9/11 hijackers visited strip clubs and bars during their off-times while taking classes in the U.S. to fly airplanes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon,and the White House. Many Americans believe Hillary Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin, married Jewish Congressman Anthony Weiner at least in part to burnish her security credentials so she could infiltrate the highest levels of the Administration.

The implications of these highly-honed tactics of deception could be enormous for unassuming Western societies. Twenty years ago, psychologist Paul Ekman wrote an insightful book, “Telling Lies”, which demonstrated that people give off recognizable clues when they are practicing deceit. Their consciences cause them, involuntarily,to sweat or raise their voices or make other recognizable gestures.

However, Dr. Ekman’s research was exclusively with people from Western cultures. Muslims, on the other hand, show no discernible signs when they are being deceitful because there is no feeling of guilt. In their minds they are doing exactly what Allah wants them to do to advance Islam. Because any Western person who has raised children knows almost intuitively when someone is lying, so they assume they can do that in all cases. Unfortunately, those same Western people can be easily duped by Islamic deceit because there are no tell-tale signs in the deceiver.

Mosab Hassan Yousef
Mosab Hassan Yousef

Another example of playing muruna till perfection is Mosab Hassan Yousef, the „Son of Hamas“.

Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of a jailed Hamas terrorist leader and MP, Sheikh Hassan Yousef, the most popular figure in that extremist Islamic organization. Mosab, as a young man, assisted his father for years in his political activities.

He converted to Christianity and operated under cover in the service of Israel's intelligence agency for a decade. Yousef reveals this information in his book, Son of Hamas: A Gripping Account of Terror, Betrayal, Political Intrigue, and Unthinkable Choices. Mosab however, did not convert to what the West would recognize as Christianity, but to a fiery, Palestinian brand of the faith that is vehemently anti-Israel. According to Mosab, his main goal in coming to the U.S.is to infiltrate the main source of international support for Israel: the American church. From an interview with Al-Arabiya:

"During my tours in universities and even churches, [I found] the real support for Israel stems from the church in the West..... We need to understand the difference between "revenge" and "resistance" and once the Palestinians do, we will have our victory against Israel."

Hopefully, this article will be a wake-up call to the unsuspecting infidels. Trust but verify – as was an old American strategy in dealing with potentially hostile parties – is the way to go in dealing with Islamists.

You can call me a racist right along with Mr. Weston. Islam, sharia law and the cowardly Muslims who refuse to speak up against the Islamofascists are one  problem. The other is how the West overall is so sick with political correctness and fear of offending Islam and or Muslims. I have no such problems and Islam is offensive and disgusting to me. PatriotUSA

"...government is going to have to step in."

When the director of the NSA speaks, he is listened to.  We little people need to listen also.  There is no other way to brace/prepare ourselves.

Via Business Insider - The Director Of The NSA Wants The Internet Under His Control

In his telling, the threat is so mind-bogglingly huge that the nation has little option but to eventually put the entire civilian Internet under his protection, requiring tweets and emails to pass through his filters, and putting the kill switch under the government’s forefinger. “What we see is an increasing level of activity on the networks,” he said at a recent security conference in Canada. “I am concerned that this is going to break a threshold where the private sector can no longer handle it and the government is going to have to step in.”  Read all HERE.

And in the meantime - PumaBydesign001 posted this video this morning.  Laugh, weep - prepare.

A Million Muslim March on 9-11-13?

Gary Fouse

The American Muslim Political Action Committee is planning a Million Muslim March on Washington DC on September 11 to demand an end to discrimination against Muslims in America.

Or something like that. here is their announcement:


"It is time for us as Muslims in America to stop being defensive and start being proactive by using our right to vote and our freedom of assemble and let our voices be heard by our country and the world. Stand with us help us fight the injustices being committed against us." 

How dare they?

How dare they use this day in American history to rub our noses in what 19 Muslims did in the name of Islam? Where is any sense of humility? Where is any sense of solidarity with America and the victims of 9-11? Instead they demand the government release the 9-11 Commission Report to the American people??!!

"We are demanding that laws be enacted protecting our 1st amendment . We are asking President Obama to fulfill his promise from his first campaign for Presidency of a transparent government. Lastly we are asking for the release of the 9/11 commission report to the American people." 

You mean the one I have sitting on my bookshelf? I guess AMPAC can borrow mine.

And what about their First Amendment rights? Seems to me they have exercised it plenty including mosques preaching hatred toward the West and non-Muslims. People like Abdul Alim Musa, Amir Abdel Malik Ali, Siraj Wahhaj, and Mohammed al Asi have had no problem whatsoever spewing their hatred publicly.

Moreover I seriously doubt there will be anything close to one million Muslims taking part in this outrage. Oh, to be sure, CAIR, ISNA, ICNA, MPAC and MAS types will the there as will the radical imams. Louis Farrakhan will be there, as will probably the new Black Panther Party, Jewish Voice for Peace, Code Pink, the ACLU and all the other radical, America-hating left-wing types that march in sympathy with extremist Islamists.

But they will not get one million ordinary American Muslims to Washington to take part in this travesty. If they do, we have a bigger problem than I ever imagined.

What I propose on September 11 is a million man Coptic Christian march to protest and ask our government to speak out about the plight of their brethren in the Middle East. How about a million-Jew march to protest the anti-Semitism playing out every day in the Middle East and Europe? How about a million Baha'i march to protest the inhuman treatment of Baha'i in Iran? How about a million gay march to speak out about the inhuman treatment of gays in Muslim countries?

Instead this.

Were I an American Muslim, I would think this is a bad idea which can only heighten the feelings of suspicion and distrust toward Muslims.

Italy's "Martyr in Syria"

Gary Fouse

Hat tip Vlad Tepes

An Italian convert to Islam, 20-year-old Giuliano Ibrahim Delnevo of Genoa, has died in Syria fighting on the side of the rebels. The Italian media is treating him with great sympathy.

This foolish young man tells his government to get out of Afghanistan. Fair enough, but what was he doing in Syria? Euronews reports he was under investigation in Italy for terrorist recruiting at the time of his death.


DHS Insider update-Doug Hagmann

Make of these reports what you wish. I just cannot, refuse to look the other way with what has been covered in these Insider reports. Look at the past four plus years

There have numerous attempts to discredit Doug Hagmann by the government and media, which is completely controlled by the government. MY PERSONAL opinion is this: There is much to be concerned about within these reports. Maybe Doug Hagmann is a government operative, maybe not. I am thinking no but I have been wrong before. Master manipulators is the term that gives me the coldest, deepest chills that run right into my morals, ethics, values and belief in what our Founding Fathers gave us with the Constitution. I REFUSE to compromise. The price you and I pay may be very high but what price do we put on our children, grandchildren? What is the cost of TRUE freedom and liberty

Time, it is just a matter of time and the government, those in power are master manipulators who are receiving a lot of FOREIGN assistance to help the cause of the global destruction of the United States.  To borrow a phrase of sorts from Historian; Evil is alive and well  in Mordor-on-the-Potomac.

More DHS insider from DC
By Doug Hagmann

As noted in my June 7, 2013 report titled DHS Insider: It’s about to get very ugly, the additional information provided to me that was temporarily withheld from publication is now being released. The methodical and incremental release of information was (and is) deliberate, to allow other things to play out, such as the public exposure to the name Edward Snowden and his revelations regarding just how extensive the domestic surveillance apparatus is—and who the surveillance is actually targeting.

Back to the early hours of June 7, 2013

“You’ve got to understand that they are trying to find the likes of me,” stated my source. Pretty soon, no one is going to be talking to anybody, especially in the alternative media, even about the damn weather. They won’t risk it, and I’m not just talking about a risk to their careers, either. There has been a systematic method of intimidation with some known and even “approved” media contacts, not just against them, but against their families,” he emphasized.

“Just give it two weeks at most, it will come out that no one will talk to the media,” he added. [Author note: See this article about AP CEO confirming their sources won’t talk anymore, dated 19 June 2013]. “But let me give you some details about some things I was told too. I know this is second-hand information, but it was from someone in a position of authority to know, someone I trust, and someone who I expect to reveal to [name of elected official deleted] the true extent of what has and in some cases, still is taking place. This individual is preparing to disclose much, and has obtained legal counsel, but the problem is that one misstep could be fatal in a literal sense, and [this source] knows that. If not fatal, there are other legal challenges, especially under a corrupt judiciary. By the time this appears in print, the disclosures will likely have already been made, just not made public.” The Holder hammer & the Chicago plumbers

“The revelation last month that the Justice Department seized two months of telephone records from the Associated Press (AP) last year is only a small part of the story. The public admission is that the Holder Justice Department obtained only telephone records from three locations, something like 20 lines, and records of calls from the House press gallery for about two months. That’s one of the biggest lies ever told,” stated my source. “The truth is that it was not limited to AP, and not limited to just number identification and call duration, but was an extensive and active wiretapping operation that included every reporter’s telephone conversations, landline and cell, text messages from their personal and business cellular telephones and other electronic devices. The primary focus is on the press gallery, where everything was monitored in real time.”

“Not only were the communications of reporters compromised, so were the private communications of congressmen and their aides. Listen to what I am saying,” he stressed, “the operation was much larger than anyone can imagine. Recordings, actual voice recordings, were turned over to the Obama administration, along with transcripts of texts, other communications and contacts.”

“NSA assets wer

e used, with the NSA acting as the collection agency for their intermediate client, the DHS. Then, at the highest levels of DHS, they sifted through the information collected. But the ultimate client or recipient of the information was the Obama White House. I don’t know if other agencies were involved in sorting through the material, but DHS, and this was limited to the highest of levels at DHS under the personal direction of Janet Napolitano, provided volumes of data directly to the Obama administration. One person inside the administration I know received the data was Valerie Jarrett,” he stated. “The other part of the lie is that this operation lasted only two months. That’s a lie. It went on well into late last year, was halted shortly after the election, but then picked back up sometime in January,” he said. Something happened in January where there appeared to be another active wiretapping operation started, but this one appeared to be more focused, or more limited in scope. Maybe, and I’m just guessing here based on some of the things I heard, that the Obama people had narrowed their interests based on the fruits of the previous operation.”

Now the ‘Holder hammer’ is coming down on anyone who opens their mouth, or previously leaked any information that could have been or be detrimental to Obama. I can tell you that Valerie Jarrett is working, out of the White House, with DHS and other agencies to co-ordinate their efforts with Justice,” the latter a reference to the Eric Holder Justice Department. “At the same time, on the media side, there is a ‘plumbers team’ headed out of Chicago, with a long reach to the New York and Washington press correspondents. So they are not only going after those on the inside, but the journalists from the other side.” “The intimidation factor is huge if a media contact is outside of a small circle of ‘vetted’ journalists who are completely loyal to Obama and his agenda. If you are not part of that inner circle, you are a target, it’s that simple. You are seeing the formation of a state-run media and an administration that will intimidate, punish or prosecute anyone considered unfriendly to the Obama camp from the inside and the outside. Like I said, this also involves elected officials, their staffs and even in some cases, their families. And it is all being done under the color of authority and the pretext of national security,” he added. Loyalty to the man, not the office

It was at this point I asked my source, what were or are they looking for?

“Anything and everything,” he responded. “Obviously, it’s about loyalty to the man, damn the country and damn the law. Protect the man and the agenda, which is not just his agenda, but the people who put him in office.”

Like who? I asked.

“Who benefits? This is about dismantling the United States and nothing less. This is about foreign interests who have taken over our government without a shot. Look at Syria and our economy, both issues that are expected, at least as discussed within DHS, to play out this year. You had it correct on both counts when you wrote about our involvement in Syria, by way of weapons shipments from Benghazi, to open another war. You also had it correct when you wrote about the killing of the U.S. Dollar. You want to know how I know this? Because the blowback from those two issues alone, one foreign and the other domestic, are what DHS is gearing up for in our ‘homeland,’” he stated.

“Unless there are enough people who wake up fast enough, we will become involved in a war in Syria, with boots on the ground, facing not only Syrian troops but Russian forces. There will be blowback here in the United States. Along with this, you will see the U.S. dollar ‘collapse’ as the reserve currency, and social uprisings here in the U.S. over both. It will be DHS teamed with other federal agencies who will meet, with force, the uprisings. There will be chaos here, but it is expected to be different depending upon where you are at. Big cities will have the most problems, and plans are being made to cordon off cities and restrict travel at the time when these uprisings start. I really didn’t want to use this phrase, but expect martial law to be used ‘for the security’ of those affected by the turmoil.”

“Then, you will see the internet being regulated in a manner that will serve only the agenda of this administration. Either right before or during these events, so-called citizen journalists will be particularly vulnerable. Watch for a serious crackdown of bloggers, online news publications and websites, but not in the way that will be immediately obvious. The ‘plumbers team’ have coordinated their efforts with Internet Service Providers to identify the people like you and others who publish their information on web sites. At first they will cite violations of terms of service. Then, they will select a few ‘troublemakers’ and identify them for criminal prosecution. Others will experience hacking and other electronic attacks. And during all of that, there will be the Obama team flooding the internet with misinformation and disinformation. In fact, that is already taking place.”

During our conversation, I started to ask about certain journalists and bloggers who died, either from ‘natural causes’ or in accidents, suicides, and under other strange circumstances. My source interrupted before I could finish my question.

“Don’t even go there, don’t bother asking me, because I just don’t know, he stated in a rather agitated manner. I do have my suspicions about one, maybe two who got a bit too close to the truth and foolishly trusted certain people, but I really don’t know for sure.”

So, what will all of this look like, I asked, when it all comes down.

“I’ve thought about that myself, and have seen some DHS documents outlining different scenarios. Maybe not what you think,” he replied. “Outside of the rioting in certain urban areas, the low stocks at your local stores, and rationing of gas, maybe not as dire as you imagine. My best guess is a combination of the riots of the 1960s along with the gasoline rationing of the 1970s, at least at first. Once people who want to save the country, those with good intentions begin to organize, it will become incrementally worse,” he stated.

“Like a car careening off a cliff, but not hitting the bottom right away. It will hit jagged edges first, each time suffering more damage. Each blow will be worse than the next.” Centralization

“Let me try to sum it up for you. It’s getting late, and I mean it’s getting late this morning and late for our country. This is all about centralization of power and pursuing an agenda that makes no sense or has any benefit to the United States. All of the things we are seeing are related. The IRS, Syria, Benghazi, the NSA, and just about everything you can name is about one thing: the consolidation of power and the centralization of authority. This party did not start with Obama, and might not end with him either.”

I interjected my surprise at this point, noting that I thought the worst, like others, that we might not see another presidential election. “When did I mention anything about an election?”

“You’re not thinking big enough,” he admonished. Nobody is thinking big enough, or has been thinking at all, which is why we’re in this position. This is a global agenda, or an agenda of the global interests, the money interests. Do you think for one second that if a person, and I don’t give a damn who it is or what position they hold, becomes a liability to those interests that they wouldn’t get rid of them? Don’t you think those in power know this?

Cryptically, he spoke of Obama’s apparent infatuation with Abraham Lincoln and asked, rhetorically whether that means anything. A country that will fall into a civil war of sorts, and all of the things common to both. Does Obama know something, or feel something? Is that playing in to his desire for oaths only to him, and not the country? Think about it.” Time frame

As we were parting, I felt a bit like Peter Falk playing Columbo in the 1970s television series when I said that I had “just one more question.” When is all of this going to start?

What? He turned and looked at me as if I had uttered an insult.

“It’s already begun. You’re seeing it now. If you want to know a date when our money will tank, or when the war goes hot, or when you won’t be able to get food or gas, I can’t tell you, and I don’t think anyone can. But remember what I said before, about the metals taking a hit and something happening after that. Look at the metals market. The U.S. has very little gold. Everything you see is being manipulated, from the economy to the metals to foreign policy. I believe that most politicians know how dire things are, and most are clawing their way for a seat at the global table. But if I had to answer you, and I guess I will so you’ll let me leave, I’d look for something to happen in early July as a precursor to the more major events later in the summer or fall, maybe in October.”

“But don’t try to look at dates for answers, look at events, even the small ones. Remember, their objectives haven’t changed, only their plans to adapt to the right conditions. To the unaware, it will look like everything was just one big unfortunate coincidence.”

Big Three Networks Have Stopped Reporting on IRS Scandal 
By Warner Todd Hutson

Apparently the Big Three TV networks have decided that the IRS intimidation scandal is over and it seems that reporting on the issue has disappeared from the airwaves.

When the story first broke after IRS official Lois Lerner admitted that the taxing agency had unfairly targeted conservatives and Tea Party groups seeking a tax status, the Big Three jumped into the story with both feet. But now, only a month later, coverage of the matter has slowed to a trickle.

A new review by the Media Research Center of the first month of coverage of the IRS scandal shows that three quarters of the stories hit in the first two weeks after the news broke.

MRC analysts reviewed each of the morning and evening newscasts on ABC, CBS and NBC from May 10 through June 12 (ABC’s World News, Good Morning America, CBS’s Evening News and This Morning, and NBC’s Nightly News and Today show), and found 127 full stories, interviews or anchor briefs that focused on the IRS scandal. Analysts determined that 76 percent of the IRS stories were aired within the first two weeks, while 24 percent of the stories arrived in the latter period, a huge drop-off.

MRC found that CBS hit the story the most (49 stories), while NBC came in second (at 44), with ABC brining up the tail (with 34).

Finally, during the week of June 10, only one mention of the scandal was heard anywhere on network TV.

The main angle the Big Three took while reporting the IRS scandal was to note that it was damaging to Obama’s reputation and his presidency. Perhaps, then, it shouldn’t be a surprise that the networks completely dropped the story as quickly as possible to give Obama time to recover.

Open Letter to UC Regents Re: Sadia Saifuddin Nomination

Gary Fouse

Recently, I posted news about the nomination of Sadia Saifuddin of UC Berkeley to serve as student regent on the University of California Regents-a questionable choice given her campus activism with the Muslim Student Association and Students for Justice in Palestine. Today, David Horowitz and Jeff Wiener of the David Horowitz Freedom Center are posting an open letter to the Regents to reconsider this nomination. You can add your name to the letter below. I have and I hope you will as well.


Can you trust the government?

Emmmm, that would be a NO Judge.

The new East Germany: The United States Of Amerikka

As a life time student of history, I was deeply drawn to the history of the Soviet Union, Germany and East Germany. I never cared for European history until I was fortunate enough to take two years of Germany and Russian history in college. The rest of Europe could have burned to hell for all I cared but the die was cast and I have studied these countries for my entire adult life. Of course I have forgotten quite a bit but I keep reading and researching.

East Germany was very interesting, especially the East German secret police, the Stasi. No polite way to state this but the Stasi were brutally efficient in monitoring and controlling the population of the former East Germany. The Stasi and KGB were joined at the hip and the way the Stasi infiltrated every corner, aspect of life in East Germany compares to what has been happening here with our own government spying on us in every conceivable way. One thing is for certain, it is much worse than has been 'leaked'. The regime, er ah, I mean our government has offered up one excuse after another why they need to do this. They are all LIES, deceptions and of course now we have a new proxy war against Russia and Iran with the United States foolishly getting involved in Syria. How are you brainwashed sheeple feeling about Obama now? Syria will be another Libya and there are no winners in Syria now, especially the Syrian people. Will the pussy whipped  Democrats and limp dick Republicans stand up to Obama and stop this madness? No they will not. War is fine as long as a commie Democrat wages it or will this be Bush's fault too? Distractions, distractions. Look a squirrel here, a maggot over there, skunks everywhere.

Protecting us from ourselves?

Now comes this and I ask YOU, loyal, steadfast readers, (all five of you,snark) what are we being protected from? Who will protect us from the tyranny of this regime and the new generation Hitler that we have in Obama. Do not like that comparison then keep reading. Offended? I do not care. Politically incorrect? GOOD. Then I have perhaps I have done my job for tonight. PatriotUSA

Imagine if a Republican tried to pull this

The Obama administration in invoking an obscure "special privilege" to stop scrutiny of data mining. Here's the thing. Obama has scrubbed all counter terror materials of jihad. Obama has said that al qaeda is defeated. Obama called the Fort Hood Jihad "workplace violence." Obama has said of Islam, "respect it!"

So who exactly is the diabolist going after? And who does the philo-jihadist in the White House think is the enemy?

Off topic but related: where is the American lapdog media on this? Hiding under their smelly desks. All these Obama o-bombshells are coming from foreign media sources.

Obama and like minded Louis Farrakhan

US government invokes special privilege to stop scrutiny of data mining The Guardian, June 16, 2013

The Obama administration is invoking an obscure legal privilege to avoid judicial scrutiny of its secret collection of the communications of potentially millions of Americans.

Civil liberties lawyers trying to hold the administration to account through the courts for its surveillance of phone calls and emails of American citizens have been repeatedly stymied by the government's recourse to the "military and state secrets privilege". The precedent, rarely used but devastating in its legal impact, allows the government to claim that it cannot be submitted to judicial oversight because to do so it would have to compromise national security.
The government has cited the privilege in two active lawsuits being heard by a federal court in the northern district of California – Virginia v Barack Obama et al, and Carolyn Jewel v the National Security Agency. In both cases, the Obama administration has called for the cases to be dismissed on the grounds that the government's secret activities must remain secret.

The claim comes amid a billowing furore over US surveillance on the mass communications of Americans following disclosures by the Guardian of a massive NSA monitoring programme of Verizon phone records and internet communications.
The director of national intelligence, James Clapper, has written in court filings that "after careful and actual personal consideration of the matter, based upon my own knowledge and information obtained in the course of my official duties, I have determined that the disclosure of certain information would cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security of the United States. Thus, as to this information, I formally assert the state secrets privilege."

The use of the privilege has been personally approved by President Obama and several of the administration's most senior officials: in addition to Clapper, they include the director of the NSA Keith Alexander and Eric Holder, the attorney general. "The attorney general has personally reviewed and approved the government's privilege assertion in these cases," legal documents state.

In comments on Friday about the surveillance controversy, Obama insisted that the secret programmes were subjected "not only to congressional oversight but judicial oversight". He said federal judges were "looking over our shoulders".
But civil liberties lawyers say that the use of the privilege to shut down legal challenges was making a mockery of such "judicial oversight". Though classified information was shown to judges in camera, the citing of the precedent in the name of national security cowed judges into submission.

"The administration is saying that even if they are violating the constitution or committing a federal crime no court can stop them because it would compromise national security. That's a very dangerous argument," said Ilann Maazel, a lawyer with the New York-based Emery Celli firm who acts as lead counsel in the Shubert case.

"This has been legally frustrating and personally upsetting," Maazel added. "We have asked the government time after time what is the limit to the state secrets privilege, whether there's anything the government can't do and keep it secret, and every time the answer is: no."

Virginia Shubert, a housing expert from Brooklyn who is the first named plaintiff in the case, said she joined it because she considered the vast monitoring of telecommunications and emails in the wake of 9/11 to be an erosion of her rights. She called the use of the state secret privilege in blocking the action "absurd. When the government faces allegations that it has violated the constitution, it cannot hide behind state secrets to avoid accountability."

The Shubert lawsuit, first lodged with the courts in May 2006, alleges that the US government has operated a massive dragnet of private citizens' communications across the country. Drawing on the testimony of several whistleblowers, the suit accuses the Bush and then Obama administration of having broken the fourth amendment of the US constitution that guards against unwarranted searches and seizures by intercepting "en masse the communications of millions of ordinary Americans".

In the course of protracted legal argument the government has invoked the military and state secrets privilege no fewer than three times. The privilege was originally laid down in 1953 in a case in which the widows of Air Force personnel involved in a secret test run of a B-29 bomber that crashed sued to see a copy of the accident investigation report and were rebuffed under a claim of privilege that disclosure of the document would "expose military matters … in the interest of national security".

In court motions, the Obama administration has set out the information that it claims is exempt from legal scrutiny under the privilege, including "information that may tend to confirm or deny whether the plaintiffs have been subject to any alleged NSA intelligence activity" and "any information concerning NSA intelligence activities, sources, or methods that may relate to or be necessary to adjudicate plaintiffs' allegations."

The government goes further and says that the state secrets privilege also covers "allegations that the NSA, with the assistance of telecommunications carriers such as AT&T and Verizon, indiscriminately intercepts the content of communications and also collects the communication records of millions of Americans."

The second case, Jewel versus National Security Agency, was lodged in 2008 following the disclosures of an AT&T whistleblower, Mark Klein. He revealed in 2006 that the telecoms firm had set up a secret NSA room within its San Francisco office in which all phone calls from the region were passing through a splitter cabinet that sent a copy to the NSA.

Mark Rumold, an attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation working on Jewel, said that this week's disclosures by the Guardian would make it increasingly difficult for the administration to claim the state secrets privilege.
