Here Joe Cirincione, President of the Ploughshares Fund and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, applauds Obama’s commitment to the total destruction of the United States nuclear arsenal.
Cirincione also praises another leftist former GOP Senator, Dick Lugar, for his reprehensible role in the disarming of America.
The Obama Administration’s number one priority is the destruction of US defensive capability. If this is allowed to occur, the United States and indeed the entire West, will be at the mercy of the combined military might of Russia, China, Iran, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea, radical Islam and all of their growing army of allies.
Of course, all these sworn enemies of the United States would never use that overwhelming advantage to obliterate a disarmed America would they? And the Lion is about to lie down with the Lamb?
If Obama succeeds and America loses its military edge over its enemies, there is very little chance of recovery. A military rebuild would take many years with a healthy economy. How long might it take after Obama has wreaked four more years of economic havoc? Where is the infrastructure, the skill base?
When they finally have America just where they want her, will the rulers of Russia, China and Iran sit on their hands and allow the Unites States to slowly rebuild its military?
Are the tyrants of Moscow, Beijing and Tehran that stupid?
Or will they use this Obama-given opportunity to take the United States out of contention once and for all?
If you were a heavily armed anti-American dictator, with a large pool of young men you wanted to get rid of, an overcrowded country and a very comfortable deep underground bunker that could easily survive some minimal nuclear retaliation, what would you do?
This is THE issue that Americans should be most worried about.
Obama’s second term will damage the US economy and diminish American’s freedoms. But America can recover from all that. What Americans may not survive is the destruction of their military superiority. That will put America at the mercy of its numerous enemies. That will put millions of lives and the physical survival of the entire country at risk. The stakes couldn’t be higher.

“Treason doth never prosper: what’s the reason? Why, if it prosper, none dare call it treason.”

Phyllis Bennis, of the Washington DC based Institute for Policy Studies, wrote an article for The Nation, January 8, 2013, posing the question “Will Chuck Hagel’s Appointment Actually Help the Anti-War Left?”
While claiming that Hagel is a conservative, Bennis outlined advantages to leftist “peace movement” activists of Chuck Hagel becoming US Secretary of Defense. Bennis is particularly happy that Hagel’s appointment is a clear signal that Obama intends to move forward with the anti-American left’s number one priority – dramatically downsizing the US military.
Chuck Hagel isn’t anyone I’d pick to be in a position of power. He’s a conservative Republican, a military guy who volunteered to fight in Vietnam…”
At the end of the day, this isn’t about Hagel versus anybody. This is about what President Obama is signaling by his nomination of Hagel as Secretary of Defense—and about the political forces arrayed against him…
Hagel’s nomination engendered bitter, angry opposition from the moment it was floated as a trial balloon two weeks ago. And the fact that Obama went ahead with the nomination, despite the opposition and the threats that the Senate would never confirm Hagel, is a good indication that on at least some critical foreign policy issues, Obama is not prepared to allow either the pro-Israeli lobbies or the hard-core neoconservatives, in and outside of Washington, to determine whom he could and could not choose as Secretary of Defense…
And then there’s the Pentagon budget. Hagel has called it “bloated,” pretty amazing for a future Secretary of Defense. Obama may have felt that a decorated Republican military veteran would be the best choice to convince a Republican-controlled Congress that some cuts will have to be made… a Pentagon chief who actually believes his agency’s budget should be cut—that’s new.
Whatever else he is, Chuck Hagel is no leftist. Standing to the left of President Obama’s center-right military policy is not a very high bar. But again—standing up to AIPAC, the defense industry (and members of Congress accountable to them) and the still-powerful neocons makes the Hagel appointment a good move for Obama. And it gives the rest of us a basis to push much farther to end the wars, to close the bases, to cut the Pentagon funding, to tax the military profiteers.
Institute for Policy Studies approval of Hagel is highly significant. As the most influential, far left think tank in America, IPS has campaigned for 50 years to destroy US military superiority.
In “Cold War” times, the IPS was notorious for its ties to the Soviet Union, the KGB and Cuban intelligence.
In recent times, the IPS has worked with domestic Marxists to build the US peace movement and anti-military movements, including co-founding a “partner organization,” the US’ largest “anti-military umbrella group, United for Peace and Justice.
In 2008, Phyllis Bennis, a former member of the Marxist-Leninist and later pro-Soviet Line of March organization, was voted onto the United for Peace and Justice steering committee. In that capacity, Bennis Worked alongside Communist Party USA leaders Judith LeBlanc (UFPJ’s National Coordinator) and Libero Della Piana. Also on the committee was an old Obama comrade, Marilyn Katz of Chicagoans Against War and Injustice, the group which made the future president nationally famous as an opponent of the Iraq War, when he addressed one of their rallies in September 2002.
Bennis was also a sponsor of War Times, a “War on Terror” journal out of San Francisco. One of War Times key leaders was a young Maoist radical named Van Jones. In 2008, while Jones was serving on the board of another IPS “partner” organization, the New York based “think tank” Demos, IPS tagged him as a potential Obama “Green Jobs” appointee. Obama, who had been a founding board member of Demos, followed IPS’s recommendation and appointed Van Jones as his “Green Jobs Czar” in early 2009. Jones was exposed by this blog later in 2009 and was eventually forced to leave the position.
Interestingly, Ploughshares is dedicated to cutting the US military budget and scrapping America’s nuclear arsenal.
According to the Ploughshare’s website:
Ploughshares Fund is a publicly funded nonprofit foundation that believes nuclear weapons pose a unique challenge to global security. By far the most destructive weapons on Earth, the use of nuclear weapons by accident, malice or design threatens mass destruction. Even unused, however, their terrible power disrupts the international systems meant to preserve order and stability.
Ploughshares Fund seeks to reduce and ultimately eliminate the threat posed by nuclear weapons. “To that end, we partner with the most promising efforts and smartest individuals in the U.S. and abroad seeking and implementing new and innovative solutions to this international problem.
Ploughshares even claims partial credit for the New START disarmament treaty which Obama signed with Moscow, early in his first term and hopes to build on that success.
Against overwhelming odds we helped strengthen U.S. security by winning the New START treaty to reduce U.S. and Russian nuclear arms. We can build momentum for further cuts by generating ideas to overcome obstacles on issues like missile defense and tactical nuclear weapons.
Ploughshares is very happy that one of their own may soon be in a position to implement their agenda.
Chuck Hagel shares the Ploughshares board with:
- John Hoyt, who in turn serves on Organizers’ Forum Board of Social Policy, a magazine run by Democratic Socialists of America aligned Marxists such as Noam Chomsky, Janice Fine, Frances Fox Piven, Heather Booth, Peter Dreier, Ken Grossinger, Communist Party affiliate Tho Thi Do, Tides Foundation kingpin Drummond Pike and former SEIU boss Andy Stern.
- Cynthia Ryan, who has also served on the board of Van Jones’ Green For All.
- Kennette Benedict, Executive Director & Publisher, Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, a far left, anti-military organization. Among the Bulletin’s founding sponsors were two leading Manhattan Project scientists and suspected Soviet spies, Leo Szilard and Robert Oppenheimer. Obama’s “Science Czar” John Holdren, once edited the Bulletin. Ruth Young, the Marxist wife of Obama’s “former” communist/Democratic Socialists of America member, friend, mentor and personal physician Quentin Young, was a managing editor.
- David Holloway, former member of the Board of Editors for The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.
Ploughshares Advisory Board members include:
- Jayantha Dhanapala, a sponsor of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.
- Leslie Gelb, President Emeritus for the left leaning Council on Foreign Relations. Gelb also serves on the Board of Directors for the Truman National Security Project, an organization that “seeks to recruit, train and elect progressives who will impact on National Security legislation.” Another Truman Project board member is John Podesta, President and CEO, of the Soros funded Center for American Progress.
- Lawrence Korb, a former Senior Fellow and Director of National Security Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations and a Senior Fellow of the Center for American Progress. Korb also served on The Sustainable Defense Task Force, which commissioned the Democratic Socialists of America controlled Commonwealth Institute to write a 2010 report for then US reps Barney Frank (a long time Democratic Socialists of America supporter) and Republican Ron Paul, which recommended significant cuts to US military spending.
- Frank von Hippel, former member of the Board of Directors for The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists. He also serves on the Board of Sponsors of the radical left Federation of American Scientists. Obama’s friend Quentin Young was once a leader of the organization.
Chuck Hagel may well be conservative on some issues. However, when it comes to foreign policy and defense, he is right in line with of the most extreme leftist, anti-American elements in the country.
Ploughshares and the Institute for Policy Studies are not liberal pressure groups. They are pro-Marxist and unpatriotic to the core.
Their main agenda was to destroy the US military, because American power was the major stumbling block to world socialism.
Will Chuck Hagel be used to give “right wing” cover to a far left anti-defense agenda?
Will the prestige of a decorated war veteran be used to cover the destruction of America’s military superiority?
The US Senate has the power to block Chuck Hagel’s appointment. For the sake of their country’s national security, they must exercise that power.

Taking strong literary license in quoting the opening line from A Tale of Two Cities, the Dickens‘ novel that explored the people and times of the French Revolution: “They were the worst of times…they were the worst of times.”
In general, this statement applies to the humans being both fleeced by the ruling class of all they had built and acquired, then imprisoning them unjustly and often illegally for challenging the rulers theft and tyranny. While the people starve due to the excesses of the “powerful,” those in power flourished on the backs of the peasants–peasants who were made so due to the aforementioned unrestrained and hedonistic excesses by those who decreed their serfdom–in order to continue their febrile and insatiable ways.
Although it is now a worldwide phenomenon, this is precisely what is happening today to the people of the world by its patently Luciferian leaders. The following offering, however, will pertain largely–if not entirely–to what is happening in the (former) United States of America.
The Overthrow and Pillaging of the US Economy
The US economy has already been overthrown. The first overwhelming shot was actually fired by the global elite (aka New World Order”) on 11 September 2008 via an electronic run on the US banking system.
Note: I suspect this was the loud and clear announcement and signal to all of the in-power leftists that the beginning of the takeover (and “transformation”) of the USA and the world nations’ money supplies had begin.
During a video report, Rep. Paul Kanjorski said: “…the Federal Reserve noticed a tremendous draw down of money market accounts in the United States to the tune of $550 Billion dollars was being drawn out in a matter of an hour or two.
“The Treasury opened up its window to help. They pumped 105 billion dollars into the system and quickly realized that they could not stem the tide. We were having an electronic run on the banks.” And many years prior to the bank run–under President Carter–the “Community Reinvestment Act” was instituted that forced mortgage companies and banks to allow people to purchase homes they could not afford and to lend them money they could not pay back–in the interest of “fairness” (aka Marxism, National Socialism, Communism etc.). This practice, continued under President Clinton, was the elemental causation of the housing/mortgage implosion that began the 2008 US (and almost the world) economic meltdown. It had been held in the wings until a true-believer Marxist-Luciferian (please see below for links to Karl Marx’s sworn obedience and love to and for his god Lucifer…THE god of the Marxist movement) would be “selected” for the Office of POTUS. That, of course, was and is Barack Hussein Obama.
Some new media journalists–including yours truly–have written for years about these individuals, their policies and the purposeful pain they have inflicted and continue to inflict upon the USA and the American people. However, most of the “mainstream media” did not bother to report in a truthful manner–if reported at all. Rather odd, wouldn’t you say?
Since Obama has been in power as POTUS (a position which he may well decide to never leave), the deterioration of the US economy has increased exponentially. This is not and never has been either a coincidence or incompetence. As has been written since before he took the White House, the Leftist/Marxist cabal (at least since 2007 when the Marxist Dems took both Houses of Congress) had been systematically raiding the US Treasury and then transferring its assets to foreign powers, their cronies and themselves. Note: This is what they really mean by “redistributing the wealth.” Obama’s cronies, Obama and other Obama-Friends in-country and overseas are now receiving this redistribution of US wealth quite easily. The only thing that has changed is that the pace of the transfer has sped up.
Police State Explosion and Gun Ownership Bans
In the old USSR, Nazi Germany, Mao’s Communist China, Chavez’ Venezuela and every other totalitarian anti-human government that has ever existed on Planet Earth, said government began arresting citizens of those respective companies as some form of “enemies of the state” under trumped-up charges or the lack of any charges at all. This practice has already begun under the Obama syndicate’s rule.
First and foremost involve the goings-on in Monroe County, Tennessee. Monroe County is considered by many to be one of if not the most corrupt counties in the US and many of its actions since 2009 are considered to be “test cases” for the federal government on how to best stop opposition to its planned and now being implemented tyranny. On 20 April, Darren Huff was on his way Madisonville, TN to support his friend LCDR Walter Fitzpatrick III (ret) who had affected an attempted (legal in Tennessee) citizen’s arrest on Grand Jury Foreman Gary Pettway. Note: Pettway had been a GJ Foreman for over 20 years, which flies in the face of Tennessee law. Instead, Fitzpatrick was arrested. Fitzpatrick was, also, one of the first US citizens–if not the first–to file a formal treason complaint against the ineligibility of Barack Obama to be POTUS–which we suspect may be the predominant reason he was arrested. Of interest and vital importance is that another high-profile military leader–Admiral James “Ace” Lyons (ret)–has come out strongly and firmly against Obama’s “treasonous” activities.
On his way, Huff was stopped by what appeared to have been a roadblock of Tennessee law enforcement. Huff was pulled over for, ostensibly, running a stop sign. However, there were five law enforcement vehicles from no less than ten law enforcement agencies. For supposedly running a stop sign? Law enforcement asked Huff if they could search his vehicle. Huff said under the US Constitution’s right to be secure, “I respectfully decline.” Law enforcement then threatened to “bring the dogs out” if Huff did not comply. They then said they were looking for explosive devices. Huff advised them that there were no explosive devices. Tennessee law enforcement, nonetheless, brought out two sniffer dogs–who found nothing. One of the officers asked Huff to voluntarily surrender his weapon–a Constitutional right under the Constitution’s Second Amendment and for which he had a permit–and Huff said that he could not violate the US Constitution by allowing it. In Huff’s video below, he advised that the stop and search ended peaceably and even with some of the officers cordially. Huff was let go and continued on his way to the trial.
Then, on 30 April 2010, Darren Huff was arrested by the FBI under–at best–suspicious and stretching-the-truth-to-its-limits weapons charges. FBI Special Agent Mark A. Van Balen testified at Huff’s trial that both Huff and at least 14 others had brandished weapons outside of the courtroom on 20 April. That, of course, would have been insane. If it actually occurred as stated by Van Balen, why was no one else arrested for anything of that nature on the date and why have they not been arrested since? In fact, no one at the FBI has given either the names of the others “brandishing weapons” nor even issued warrants for anyone else. Strange don’t you think? Perjury? Sure sounds like it to me. At the trial–which has now become all too common-place in Monroe County–Huff was not allowed to present anything resembling a defense.
Note: Neither was Fitzpatrick allowed to present a defense during his recent trial.
Without any real ability to defend himself being permitted by the court, it took the jurors eleven hours to render a guilty verdict against Huff. He was sentenced to four years in prison on 15 May 2012 for what strongly appears to be challenging the authority of tyrants all the way to the top elected levels in the USA. This is only one example of what is now transpiring–on a daily basis–in what was once our country. Much of it has been fomented and is now being implemented by the Obama syndicate…whose tentacles appear to be everywhere. And, if you actually think the Sandy Hook massacre wasn’t planned and staged…please stay tuned.
