Hellfire from above, DHS from below — a match made in the fevered imagination of a reality TV producer whose material is about to be rejected for lacking plausibility. What at first appears laughable, is a security nightmare on our borders. Napolitano has drones patrolling the Canadian border, while none are stationed on the Mexican border. We are furloughing 60,000 border agents because of a fake ‘sequestration emergency,’ while obligingly granting visas to our Jihadist enemies and denying them to those shifty Europeans. America has become a security free zone, where radical Islamists come to play in the sun and kill Americans for sport. But hey… at least they aren’t using evil black guns.
America made a horrific mistake after 9-11. Actually, several. We declared a ‘War on Terror’ which was too vague and easy to manipulate. When going to war, one should name his enemy — such as radical Islam — and take the fight to them. (Of course, the assault lawyers will be quick to point out that “radical Islam” is not a nation; well, no, but neither is “terror.”) Actual war should have been declared and Iran should have been dealt with — violently. We kept claiming that Saudi Arabia was our friend, but in reality, the majority of the terrorists on that infamous day came from there. Whether sanctioned by the government or not, at the very least all dealings with Saudi Arabia should have been halted immediately (oil or not) and sanctions should have been put in place. Frankly, to this day, no one should be allowed in this country from an Islamist state without a full background check and strict security. But that would be sanity, which is in short supply in America these days. Now, our government beds down with the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda – the very ones who killed almost 3,000 Americans in the most horrendous attack on American soil to have ever occurred. Our leadership is pervasively infiltrated with the very ones who murdered our people and somehow, America seems fine with that — as long as you accept that media-squelched dissent is the same as “acceptance” — and Barack Obama is aggressively furthering it.
From Mark Steyn:
And, in a certain sense, they’re right: Afghanistan is winding down, at best, to join the long list of America’s unwon wars, in which, 48 hours after departure, there will be no trace that we were ever there. The guys with drones are losing to the guys with fertilizer – because they mean it, and we don’t. The drone thus has come to symbolize the central defect of America’s “war on terror,” which is that it’s all means and no end: We’re fighting the symptoms rather than the cause.
Rand Paul filibustered the nomination of Brennan as head of the CIA last week. It did not stop the suicidal approval of a Muslim convert (I’m sure there is no conflict of interest there) as our chief spy (savor the irony of that for a moment), but it did bring to light the unconstitutional use of drones on American soil and the government’s claim to fame of killing Americans in the US with no warrant or due process, all in the name of the War on Terror. Our Attorney General answered Paul, saying that the US government could not blow up, mow down or generally kill Americans on US soil – sort of:
From Conscience of a Conservative:
This is attorney weasel speak – please define the use of the word ‘combat.’ And it still does not rescind the previous authority for the government to attack American citizens, arrest them and detain them without trial. Actually, this leaves the issue wide open to legal interpretation where anyone that Obama does not like can be deemed to be engaged in combat on American soil. Holder might as well have inserted ‘Tea Party’ into the wording as it is obvious to most of us exactly what he meant. It all depends on what the word ‘is’ is, a la Clinton. We are still being legally screwed by Progressives. I understand taking out bad guys on our turf, but there should be Constitutional guidelines and it should be a last resort. If someone is killing or getting ready to kill lots of people, or is getting ready to nuke middle America – then drones have a place. But taking out Joe Six-Pack? Not without due process. Hunting down and exterminating Americans should never be simple. It is a kill shot too easy to abuse by anyone in power, not to mention a megalomaniac like the current Dictator-in-Chief.
The government is ramping up a police state here in America in a big hurry. With the purchase of 1.6 billion rounds of ammo, more guns than can be counted, over 2700 heavily armored MRAPs (vehicles protected against IEDs and outfitted with gun turrets — should be handy in protecting against Ma and Pa America when they get uppity and guarding against all those landmines across rural America — cleverly disguised as potholes), warehousing food and weapons – you would think that Armageddon is due just about any old time now. The federal government is arming not only local city police forces, but the Social Security Administration, the Department of Education, the IRS, the EPA and even the Railroad Retirement Board (?!). If everyone gets their very own SWAT teams, can drones for everyone be far behind? And if you think that they’ll just use them for tickets (heinous all by itself), weather reports and traffic management, you are living in LaLa Land, waiting for SkyNet to take over.
Remember Waco? Ruby Ridge? Those will look like a walk in the park if this keeps up. Any American can be labeled a combatant – any excuse will do and after the first kill and outcry, Americans are likely to accept it just as they do the TSA feeling up their children (remember, you didn’t hear any dissent, so it must have been “accepted,” right?). Obama has violated most of our Constitutional Amendments, what makes you think that he won’t use the military against us, utilizing drones to do so? He will use clever legal linguistics to step around his limitations as President and he will use executive fiat as well. An Administration that is reluctant to restrain itself from killing suspect Americans at home, will now extend all judicial proprieties to known enemy combatants, such as Bin Laden’s son-in-law in New York awaiting a civilian trial when he should face a military tribunal. He conspired to attack America and has no rights as an American citizen. But hey, one small step for New World Order, right? It’s Progressive/Marxist incrementalization.
We now exist in Droneworld and Holder’s ‘clarification’ is no comfort at all. It is alarming. Although the Senator from Kentucky did an outstanding job of filibustering and bringing this to the forefront, nothing was gained on this issue except a solidifying of resolve on the part of our increasingly militaristic police state government. And to add to the mistrust issue, the Air Force is erasing drone strike data. But, Senator Paul did get his point across — from Diana West:
Republican Rand Paul took to the floor of the U.S. Senate this week to filibuster John Brennan’s nomination to become head of the CIA. “I will speak as long as it takes,” the junior senator from Kentucky said, “until the alarm is sounded from coast to coast that our Constitution is important, that your rights to trial by jury are precious, that no American should be killed by a drone on American soil without first being charged with a crime, without first being found to be guilty by a court.”
I imagine many Americans following news of the filibuster, which lasted nearly 13 hours, were finding out for the first time that lawmakers such as Paul, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and a handful of others are gravely concerned about a possible threat from the executive branch against these unalienable rights. This makes the filibuster a success. As Paul said, sounding the alarm from “coast to coast” was exactly his aim.
Not only can you thank Barack Obama, Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano, you can thank John McCain and Lindsey Graham for supporting and forwarding this blatant attack on Constitutional rights and the liberty of the American populace at large. Don’t believe the government and Progressives on both sides of the aisle when they tell you these are not the droids you’re looking for. No, rather, these are the droids that are looking for you. Beware the droids of March.

i completely disagree. 9-11 was done by forces within our government. what the hell did iran do? and what the hell does islam have to do with thieving bankers who are responsible for EVERYTHING? you are a fool. a blind enraged fool, blaming the wrong people for the mess we are in. good luck with this whole damn thing.
Dude, you need to watch “Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth”. Those 3, not 2, buildings were blown up. 9/11 was an Inside Job. Iran has done nothing to us, but now they will because we keep messing around in their territories. Anonymous is correct. The banksters are more of a threat to us.
It will be BIG fun to watch this mass murdering terrorist government SLAUGHTERED in the streets of AmeriKa.
Wake up Teresa 911 = INSIDE JOB. When you do bother to research the murder of 3000 people on that fateful day you will find that Islam, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran had nothing whatsoever to do with it.
However the real threat to democracy is right there over your heads in the Pentagon, Washington and Wall Street, the organised crime gang that still take their orders from the British Crown at Westminster here in the UK.
These people( i use that word vaguely) care not for our liberty, security or even our right to exist. What they do care for however is THEIR SECURITY to carry on bombing the planet for their brand of democracy which is in effect TYRANNY. If we lived in a true republic of the people with constitutional rights and freedoms there would be no CIA, M16 and Mossad running around committing terrorism upon us in the name of Islam. There would also be a true investigation into 911, not the whitewash lies we always get.
Agree with Anonymous.9/11 was a false flag.Iran is no threat to us.
Looks like the commenters have much more intelligence the writer of the article. The only terrorist threats are from three letter agencies and their co-opted cartoon media, as well as anyone with an R or a D after their name. This author probably believes Obama and his Navy Squeals killed bin Laden! I say cut the military and DHS budget 90% and stop paying taxes to the foreign banks. With comments like those above mine, I have great hope in the people. They are not being fooled anymore. The MSM is dying. The Administration is so scared of the people that they need 2 Billion rounds of ammo, armored vehicles and armed drones.
Meanwhile, the Nuclear Industry continues to create radiologic hell with no solution to dispose of these deadly isotopes and elements. As for Iran,
there is no such thing as a peaceful nuclear program. There is no way around the fact that there is no solution to nuclear waste. This waste WILL render the planet uninhabitable for the 9 million species that live here. No one has a “right’ to a technology that will kill everything. Stop the madness. Iran is in a position to say, “We have explored nuclear power production and found it to be too dangerous to pursue.” That would send a message to the world and send the Ziocontrollers scrambling for a new reason to attack a peaceful nation. Hopefully this will awaken the world to the Lie-o-nist leaders and their cartoon media!
911 was a false flag black op perpetrated on America by Israel and their fellow neocon travelers in the Bush Administration. The democrats came along for the ride and are complicit. Who does the writer think is behind the gun confiscation and the tyranny build up.
The dems and repubs all work for the same banks and corporations!
War is A Racket!

You are a disinformation shill and an ignorant warmonger.
Did you do any research or are these the talking points given at the lodge by your master?
Do you work for FOX News? Because you certainly sound like them.
Please don’t have children because they will be as brainwashed as you are.
In the article you mentioned John Brennan as a “muslim convert”. I would like to know where you found this very interesting piece of information.
Teresa, Teresa, Teresa….tsk tsk tsk. Girl, you are drowning in the kool-aid. The others are right, you are sadly misinformed, a deluded tool, or a deliberate disinfo shill. Pitiful.
Wow. Wow, where did you people come from? Did you share this article at a party of occupiers or extreme Libertarians?
My husband is a nuclear engineer and we actually looked into all the inside job claims and they are without basis. They are conspiracy theories, nothing more – do your research!
If you want me to share actual facts with you. I’ll be hanging out behind the grassy knoll.
To all the 9-11 truther America-hating commenters above… this informative, detailed, factual and sourced article has clearly struck a nerve with you. Why? Because you don’t want people to know what’s really going on. But how ironic… while you blast away claiming the US government was in on 9-11, you dispute the possibility that they are violating our rights and, through their actions, moving the US toward a police state despite their clear actions.
It’s sad to see that common sense and logical analysis of the actions of our government escapes you so completely. Keep living in your dumbed-down fantasy land, ignore what your own eyes can see, defend what the US government is doing while, at the same time, saying they pulled off 9-11. Rational thinking and logical debate just isn’t possible with you.
Attention TROLLS and TRUTHERS. You have nothing to fear from the government because you are not included in the potential terrorist list issued by DHS. If you want to do some real research, check out the DHS documents mentioned below. By the way, excellent article, Terresa.
Lets not forget that the Dept. of Homeland Security has already described and defined who they believe to be the “enemies of the government”. It isn’t the Islamic terrorists who attacked us on 9-11, it is the people who support the 2nd Amendment, Pro-Life and third-party candidates and our returning veterans. As I wrote on Feb. 13, 2010 in my blog: What is wrong with the Patriot Act http://oldironsides-thesilentmajority.blogspot.com/2010/02/what-is-wrong-with-patriot-act.html : You have probably heard about Dept. of Homeland Security’s controversial document that was published in 2009. It was one of the first things Obama had his DHS do. It is called (U//FOUO) Rightwing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment. It is available here: http://www.fas.org/irp/eprint/rightwing.pdf Two weeks before this was published, Dept. of Homeland Security published another document called (U//FOUO) Domestic Extremism Lexicon, that described the definitions it was using. It is available here: http://www.tdbimg.com/files/2009/04/30/-hsra-domestic-extremism-lexicon_165213935473.pdf
The DHS document (U//FOUO) Domestic Extremism Lexicon also includes precursors to the ill-fated “Right-wing Extremism: Current Economic and Political Climate Fueling Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment” report, which prompted outrage from legislators and a campaign calling for the resignation of DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano. For example, the lexicon contains virtually the same broad-stroke language the right-wing extremism report used. And all right wing extremists are considered domestic terrorists
“Right wing extremism,” the lexicon defines as those “who can be broadly divided into those who are primarily hate-oriented, and those who are mainly anti-government and reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority. This term also may refer to right wing extremist movements that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.”
The left wing Democrats in Washington want to tie all their plans into a neat bundle. Taking into consideration that DHS has virtually declared that you and I are both “Right Wing Extremists” now consider that Atty Gen. Eric Holder has proposed legislation to prohibit any person considered a domestic terrorist or right wing extremist from owning a firearm.

ALL airliners have hundreds of serial numbers tatooed on all their parts,a little checking and you will discover ,ALL the missing airliners are now in foreign hands,meaning “on the morning of 9-11” some one did a lot of paint work on stolen airliners,and the passengers were taken off at columbus,international airport in Ohio,all 265 of them, who were all on one airliner?? how’d that happen, loaded into black military PRISON buses and hauled out of the airport to where??? and what happened to them??? the military knows………..AND everyone of them were whisle blowers,from different defence companies,imagine that………………….
NOTHING,that has happened in the last 50 years,will matter if OBAMA signs an agreement to divide THE LORDS CITY, JERUSALEM,everyone was warned in the good book what will happen if ANYONE does that,total destruction will come upond them………………………THINK I’AM KIDDING,read JEREMIAH chapters 50-51-52,this is whats going to happen……………………………
Sarah Noble and Nancy. You are the only ones here living in your dumbed down fantasy land of mindless goyim cattle that nod their heads and wag their tales at everything their govt tells them including the ludicrous official conspiracy theory about how Bin Laden and his 17 Saudi hijackers(that never were) pulled off 911 armed with plastic scissors and box cutters when they couldn’t even get a cessna off the round lol.
Quite frankly it is you who are a disgrace to America and American values of freedom and liberty that affords the pubic the right to question the govt and hold them accountable for their actions and if so take up arms against corruption in power. Indeed whilst the sheep drank the fluoride and slept, their govt slowly took away our freedoms, ripping up the constitution and now we have a tyranny of unelected evil despots hellbent on bringing a world communist govt based on feudalism and rule by despotic theocracy(Zionism).
Remember Thomas Jefferson one of the greatest patriots of America and a founding father? I will admonish with two of his most cautionary quotes:
“The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is to protect themselves from tyranny in govt”.
“The beauty of the Second Amendment is that it may not be needed until they try to take it”.
And yes Nancy, tyranny has now come to America and we must challenge it and depose it before it spreads like a cancer throughout the planet, no doubt it already is. Please wake up from your COGNITIVE DISSONANCE and face the FACTS.
Yeah, it is pretty much a waste of time reading articles by folks that are still in denial about the facts that OUR leaders are the guilty party. The only mistake Americans made after 911 was not hanging the people that pulled it off. Lies don’t have a leg to stand on. The truth stands on two legs.
Miss T, you certainly hit a nerve.
Look at all the flak from the trolls. “If you’re taking flak, it means you’re over the target.” Somebody really wants to deflect attention from the possibility that a) this administration is hostile to our nation, and b) this administration has aligned itself with external forces hostile to our culture.
We have a regular crew of Sunstein style “cognitive infiltration” types here making the rounds, sowing what disruption they can, doing their weak misdirection thing, waving their poorly constructed straw men, shouting, “No! Don’t look over there! Look over here instead!”
Miss T, if I had any doubts about the vector and color of your article, those doubts have certainly been removed by the hysterical protestations of the digital “seminar caller” crowd.
You know what’s ironic? They’re slamming you for questioning the integrity of the government . . . and doing it by accusing the government of misconduct.
You just have to love that.
I have a “Birthday Book” and when I looked up Janet Napolitano’s birthday (November 29), it said “those born on this day have a knack for provoking others–sometimes to thought, at other times to conflict. They like to stir up the pot and usually their presence alone leads to some change in the status quo. Sometimes branded as troublemakers, they are not overtly concerned with what others think of them. They know how to push emotional buttons. They may in fact regard themselves as watchdogs of the truth, and woe to anyone who presumes to depart from it! Their capacity to punish such transgressors can be frightening, since they know exactly where and when to strike. They must beware, however, that just punishment does not turn sadistic and lose its underlying integrity.” The strengths of the people born on this day are “provocative, dynamic and influential” their weaknesses are “troubled, disturbing, stressed.” How true.
The US has become a psychotic superpower, high on paranoia induced by its own poisonous propaganda. This unstable, lawless rogue state, armed to the teeth and deluded by its own self-righteousness, poses the greatest risk to world security.
The US government, and its Bankster owners, have been overthrowing and/or murdering the best leaders in Latin America, and the world, for decades. Iran’s Mossadegh, Guatemala’s Arbenz, the Dominican Republic’s Trujillo and Bosch, Ecuador’s Velasco and Roldos, Zaire’s Lumumba, Indonesia’s Sukarno, Cambodia’s Sahounek, Chile’s Allende, and Panama’s Torrijos are just a few examples.
The same killers, and the institutional forces they represent, murder the best American leaders too. John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Senator Paul Wellstone are notable victims. Two excellent books have appeared in recent years proving, to any reasonable reader, that a shadow government working through the CIA, FBI, and organized crime killed JFK and Dr. King. Those books are JFK and the Unspeakable by James Douglass, and An Act of State by William Pepper.
When the most powerful empire on earth insists on resolving disputes through murder, rather than reasoned dialogue, that empire has become a cancer on the world.
