North Korea has threatened to target US airbases in Okinawa and Guam as it issued an air raid alert on Thursday and ordered its military to stand ready, the country’s state media reported.
"The United States is advised not to forget that our precision target tools have within their range the Anderson Air Force base on Guam where the B-52 takes off, as well as the Japanese mainland where nuclear powered submarines are deployed and the navy bases on Okinawa," the North Korean command spokesman was quoted as saying by KCNA news agency.
The threats came as a response to the use of nuclear-armed US B-52 bombers in joint war games South Korea held with the US. "We cannot tolerate the US carrying out nuclear strike drills, setting us as targets, and advertising them as strong warning messages," the spokesman said.

The air raid alert was issued at 9:32 am local time (00:32 am GMT) with military units and civilians told to take cover, Korean Central Television said.

A news report by South Korea’s Yonhap news agency suggested that the warning appears to be a part of a military drill, though this has not been confirmed by Pyongyang.
This comes amid growing tensions on the Korean Peninsula and ongoing saber-rattling that followed the UN Security Council's imposition of strict sanctions on Pyongyang over its third underground nuclear test in February.

On Monday, the US said that every military resource at its disposal, including its nuclear arsenal, would be available to South Korea in the event of a confrontation with the North.

Earlier in March, Pyongyang threatened all-out nuclear war with the US and South Korea after the two countries began joint military drills on the Korean Peninsula. The North also nullified the 1953 armistice that ended the Korean War, claiming the drills were preparations for an invasion.

New York State Sets Up Gun Snitch Line With $500 Award

New York State Sets Up Gun Snitch Line With $500 Award

New York State is now offering $500 to people who snitch on gun owners.
Menrec has the story.
And, The Troy Record also has news on the tip line on their Facebook page – It is real. There is actually someone there to take your tips… So that state officials can come take your guns.
NY State has established a toll-free tip line – 1-855-GUNSNYS (1-855- 486-7697) to encourage residents to report illegal firearm possession. The tip line also allows for information to be submitted via text – individuals can text GUNTIP and their message to CRIMES (274637). The New York State Police staff the tip line 24 hours a day. Upon receiving a call, troopers will solicit as much information as possible regarding a firearm tip then contact the appropriate police agency with the lead to initiate an investigation. If the information leads to an arrest for the illegal possession of a firearm, the “tipster” will be awarded $500.
This is like something you’d read about in China or Cuba, not America.
Pat Bailey from CBS6 has more on the snitch line.
A program aimed at rewarding people who blow the whistle on illegal gun owners has yet to show significant results, says three police agencies in the New York.
In February of 2012, 11 months before the passage of the NY SAFE Act, Governor Cuomo’s office announced a four pronged initiative to curb gun violence. One of the programs was a cash reward for citizens who lead police to the arrest and confiscation of illegal fire arms.
Known as the “Gun Tip Line”, New Yorkers can call a toll free hotline to alert police if they believe someone they know has an illegal gun. The call would be picked up by state police and local law enforcement would be notified if the tip seemed reliable.
If there was an arrest the tipster would receive as much as $500.

Biden Smears Americans Worried About Gun Rights As “Black Helicopter Crowd”… March 20, 2013 Vice President Joe Biden says requiring Americans to register guns would “cross a cultural line” that would incite conservatives and conspiracy theorists. “The idea that you register your guns – it may make logical sense to say this, but there isn’t a constitutional right to own an automobile. There is a Second Amendment Constitutional right to own a weapon: the right to have and bear arms,” he said in an interview with NPR’s “All Things Considered.” “When you go to registration, it raises all the black-helicopter-crowd notion that what this is all about is identifying who has a gun so that one day the government can get up and go to the house and arrest everyone who has a gun, and they’ll cite Nazi Germany and all that.” Continue reading via Politico...

Social Security Official Presents Plan B: Raid The Retirement Fund

Social Security Official Presents Plan B: Raid The Retirement Fund


Stephan Goss, the chief actuary for Social Security (SS) provided a detailed report on the status of the SS Disability Fund (DI) to the House of Representitives. The short story is that DI is going bust in a few years. The options to fix this problem were spelled out in the report. The extremes of the required “fix” range from an immediate cut in DI benefits of 16%, or an increase in DI payroll taxes of 20%.
Nothing new there. But, there is aPlan B” for the DI Fund. The solution is to raid the SS Retirement Fund for the deficits at DI:
A simple tax-rate reallocation between OASI and DI, as was done in 1994, could equalize the financial prospects of the trust funds avoiding reserve depletion until 2033.
Note: “Simple tax-rate reallocation” means $40+b a year….
Bingo! The raid on the retirement fund results in no cuts in benefits, and no new taxes. What’s not to like about that result? The gutless wimps in D.C. would love to kick the can down the road a decade, therefore the Raid solution is an obvious choice. (The consequence of the Raid would be to reduce the expected life of the Retirement Trust Fund by as much as five years.)
This is not the first time this has come up. The Congressional Budget Office, in its 2/5/13 report on the SS Trust Funds had these words in a footnote:
CBO’s baseline assumes that the Commissioner will pay DI benefits in full even after the trust fund is exhausted.
Note: For a discussion of the CBO report, see my article from 2/10/13 (Link).
Okay, we now have two legs of the government who have (functionally) suggested that a raid on the OASI fund is a possible fix for DI. Lightening does not strike twice in the same place very often, especially in Washington. The idea of raiding one fund to preserve another, has just gotten another big supporter. If the folks at AARP understood what was being proposed – they would flip their wigs!
++
The True Cost of the Disability Program
I have a list, (it’s pretty short) of the folks who I think are “doing the right thing” in Washington. Stephen Goss was on that list. I’m disappointed with him and his presentation of the “Facts” about the DI program.
Mr. Goss’s report to the House ran nineteen pages;  there are 14 charts. (Link) Everything a Congressman (or the public) could ever want to know about the DI program is spelled out in detail.
But, Goss completely left out the most critical cost of DI. The Chief Actuary failed to identify a cost directly related to DI. The numbers are big – $80b in 2012. The estimate is for more than a trillion of over the coming decade. If you look beyond that time horizon, the costs that Goss failed to identify are in the mega-trillions.
Goss failed to provide the full picture when he did not disclose the DI costs to Medicare. Every individual who gets DI benefits ALSO gets Medicare.
In a report dated 3/14/2013 (Link), the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) accurately described the real costs of DI:

Total government spending on DI beneficiaries is substantially higher than DI expenditures alone.

Disabled beneficiaries receive coverage under Medicare, regardless of their age.

The cost of Medicare benefits received by DI beneficiaries was about $80 billion in 2012; CBO expects that it will be $130 billion in 2023.
I give Stephen Goss an “F” for failing to provide all of the information needed to evaluate the DI program. How do you sweep a trillion dollars under the carpet?

Letter to Judge Guilford seeking a leave to file antiSLAPP
Dr. Orly Taitz ESQ
29839 Santa Margarita, ste 100
Rancho Santa Margarita, CA 92688
03.19.2013

Hon Judge Guilford,

Defendants “Defend Our Freedoms Foundation”, Law offices of Orly Taitz and Orly Taitz, inc are  respectfully requesting a leave of court to file a motion to dismiss the First Amended Complaint under the antiSLAPP statute. 425.16
Previously this court denied the motion to dismiss the original complaint in antiSLAPP and refused to give defendants a leave of court to file an antiSLAPP motion to dismiss the Amended complaint. The 9th Circuit has reversed and stricken the ruling by this court denying the motion to dismiss the original complaint in antiSLAPP  and remanded the case to this court for further proceedings. This court requires a leave of court prior to filing any motions, therefore a request for a leave of court is being filed herein.  This court has already granted Orly Taitz, as an individual, a leave of court to file an antiSLAPP motion to dismiss (strike) the FAC and currently DOFF,   Orly Taitz, inc and Law Offices of Orly Taitz are seeking a similar leave to file an antiSLAPP motion.   ”Motion to strike a state law claim under California ‘s anti–SLAPP statute may be brought in federal court.Vess v. Ciba-Geigy Corp.USA, 3L1 F. 3d 7091 , 1109 (9th cir. 2003). The antiSLAPP statute was enacted to allow for early dismissal- “of meritless first amendment cases aimed at chilling expression through costly, time consuming litigation.” Batzel v Smith, 3331 F. 3d 1018, IO24 (9th cir. 2003). The statute should be construed broadly, ” Cal. Civ. Proc. Code 5425.16 (a) interpreted “in a manner favorable to the exercise of freedom of speech, not its curtailment, ” Briggs v Eden Council for Hope and Opportunity, 19 Cal 4th 1106-1119 (1999).
For antiSLAPP motion to succeed following requirements need to be met:
1. SLAPP law suit was filed to limit public participation in free speech
2.Plaintiffs cannot meet the burden of probability of prevailing on the merits
1. Speech in question represented posting by Taitz, providing supporters with truthful information that her old website was taken over by former volunteer webmaster Lisa Ostella, who is currently working with another attorney Berg, who in turn uses as his legal assistant Lisa Liberi, who was recently convicted of 10 felony counts of grand theft and forgery. This was a protected speech and had a great public value, alerting the donors and supporters. The law suit at hand was filed based on fraud, where Plaintiffs attempted to defraud the public and this court and create an impression that Liberi was a different person, not a convicted forger and thief, that  posting of a criminal record defamed her and Berg. The law suit was filed with an intent to intimidate Taitz into silence. Additional intent was Berg’s desire to keep Liberi’s criminal record under wraps, intimidate Taitz not to talk about it, as Berge was being sued by the Disciplinary Board of Pennsylvania and Liberi was his witness and alibi. (The board has already ruled that Berg should be suspended from practice of law and Berg is appealing this decision. Recently a motion was filed for the Supreme Court of PA to render its’ decision.
2. The Plaintiffs cannot meet their burden of prevailing  as this court has already dismissed this complaint against most other defendants, finding that Liberi was indeed convicted and all the information came from public records and was entered into public records by Liberi, herself, therefore there was no defamation and no invasion of private information. Additionally the case cannot succeed as the 12b(1) motion has not been adjudicated on the merits yet, the case was filed on May 4, 2009 based on diversity of state citizenship. Prior judge, Judge Robreno, ordered Liberi and Berg to file with the court Liberi’s drivers license to prove diversity of state citizenship and for four years Liberi and Berg have been in contempt of court and never filed Liberi’s license and never proved diversity. For that reason alone the Plaintiffs cannot meet their burden of succeeding, and the case has to be dismissed, and Plaintiffs have to be severely sanctioned for 4 years of contempt of court. Additionally, this case cannot succeed on the merits against Orly Taitz, inc, as Orly Taitz inc is a Dental office of Dr. Orly Taitz, who is both a dentist and an attorney and there is no connection between the dental office of Dr. Taitz and the dispute at hand. Additionally, Law office of Orly Taitz is not a legal entity. There is no corporation or LLC or any other entity by the name Law Offices of Orly Taitz. one has zero probability of succeeding against the legal entity, which does not even succeed.
For all of the above reasons the leave to file the antiSLAPP should be granted.
Respectfully
/s/ Dr. Orly Taitz ESQ

Statement of the Attorney General on Litigation Involving the Defense of Marriage Act
WASHINGTON – The Attorney General made the following statement today about the Department’s course of action in two lawsuits, Pedersen v. OPM and Windsor v. United States, challenging Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which defines marriage for federal purposes as only between a man and a woman:
 
In the two years since this Administration took office, the Department of Justice has defended Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act on several occasions in federal court.   Each of those cases evaluating Section 3 was considered in jurisdictions in which binding circuit court precedents hold that laws singling out people based on sexual orientation, as DOMA does, are constitutional if there is a rational basis for their enactment.   While the President opposes DOMA and believes it should be repealed, the Department has defended it in court because we were able to advance reasonable arguments under that rational basis standard.  
 
Section 3 of DOMA has now been challenged in the Second Circuit, however, which has no established or binding standard for how laws concerning sexual orientation should be treated.   In these cases, the Administration faces for the first time the question of whether laws regarding sexual orientation are subject to the more permissive standard of review or whether a more rigorous standard, under which laws targeting minority groups with a history of discrimination are viewed with suspicion by the courts, should apply.
 
After careful consideration, including a review of my recommendation, the President has concluded that given a number of factors, including a documented history of discrimination, classifications based on sexual orientation should be subject to a more heightened standard of scrutiny.   The President has also concluded that Section 3 of DOMA, as applied to legally married same-sex couples, fails to meet that standard and is therefore unconstitutional.   Given that conclusion, the President has instructed the Department not to defend the statute in such cases.   I fully concur with the President’s determination.
 
Consequently, the Department will not defend the constitutionality of Section 3 of DOMA as applied to same-sex married couples in the two cases filed in the Second Circuit.   We will, however, remain parties to the cases and continue to represent the interests of the United States throughout the litigation.   I have informed Members of Congress of this decision, so Members who wish to defend the statute may pursue that option.   The Department will also work closely with the courts to ensure that Congress has a full and fair opportunity to participate in pending litigation.  
 
Furthermore, pursuant to the President ’ s instructions, and upon further notification to Congress, I will instruct Department attorneys to advise courts in other pending DOMA litigation of the President's and my conclusions that a heightened standard should apply, that Section 3 is unconstitutional under that standard and that the Department will cease defense of Section 3. 
 
The Department has a longstanding practice of defending the constitutionality of duly-enacted statutes if reasonable arguments can be made in their defense.   At the same time, the Department in the past has declined to defend statutes despite the availability of professionally responsible arguments, in part because – as here – the Department does not consider every such argument to be a “reasonable” one.   Moreover, the Department has declined to defend a statute in cases, like this one, where the President has concluded that the statute is unconstitutional.  
 
Much of the legal landscape has changed in the 15 years since Congress passed DOMA.   The Supreme Court has ruled that laws criminalizing homosexual conduct are unconstitutional.   Congress has repealed the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy.   Several lower courts have ruled DOMA itself to be unconstitutional.   Section 3 of DOMA will continue to remain in effect unless Congress repeals it or there is a final judicial finding that strikes it down, and the President has informed me that the Executive Branch will continue to enforce the law.   But while both the wisdom and the legality of Section 3 of DOMA will continue to be the subject of both extensive litigation and public debate, this Administration will no longer assert its constitutionality in court.

Opening Comments
Why does it matter who Barak Obama’s father really is ?
It matters because Barack Obama sold himself to America as the multi-cultural ideal, a man who stood above politics. His father was a goat herder from Kenya, so he would bring people together, so the story went. As a result, the public perceived Barack Obama as a nice man with an inspiring family story.

However, as shown in Dreams from My Real Father, Barack Obama in fact has a deeply disturbing family background, which he intentionally hid, in order to obscure a Marxist political foundation. While voters will overlook some fudging by politicians, promoting a false family background to hide a Marxist agenda irreconcilable with American values is a totally unacceptable manipulation of the electorate.
At age 18, Barack Obama admittedly arrived at Occidental College a committed revolutionary Marxist. Based on Obama’s own accounts, there can be no doubt that Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party USA Propagandist, and former Soviet Agent, indoctrinated Obama with a Marxist world view during his formative years. This is a known phenomenon amongst the radical left, referred to as “Red Diaper Babies” or “hand-me-down Marxism.” Much of the leadership of the SDS and Weather Underground were children of Communist Party USA members, including Katherine Boudin, Jeff Jones, and many more. David Axelrod is also a “Red Diaper Baby”, his mother was a Red journalist.
The Journalist’s Creed
Obama’s election was not a sudden political phenomenon. It was the culmination of an American socialist movement that Frank Marshall Davis nurtured in Chicago and Hawaii, and has been quietly infiltrating the US economy, universities, and media for decades.
As I speak today, here at the National Press Club in Washington DC, what strikes me as most disturbing is that any one of the hundreds of American journalists in this building could win the Pulitzer Prize, just by writing about the evidence presented in Dreams from My Real Father.
So today, here at the National Press Club, a great American Institution, I would like to recall the Journalist’s Creed. The Journalist’s Creed is a code of ethics for the profession of Journalism. It is posted on the wall in the lobby of this building in bronze. It was written by Walter Williams in 1906, when he founded the Missouri School of Journalism. The Journalist’s Creed stipulates:
1) That journalists must be public trustees with the full measure of responsibility to the public
2) That accuracy and fairness are fundamental to good journalism
3) That a single standard of truth must prevail for all
4) That suppression of the news is indefensible
5) And that journalism must be independent, unbiased by personal opinion, and always unafraid.
I Accuse
I accuse all major American Television networks and most Cable News networks of gross violations of the Journalists Creed.
I accuse ABC, NBC, and CBS network news Divisions of violating the public trust by refusing to cover my documentary film, and for ignoring all the revelations about Obama’s background that other researchers have produced.
I accuse MSNBC of an intentional and often vile campaign of lies and misrepresentations to protect Barack Obama’s false narrative.
I accuse Newmax.com of censorship and suppression of the news. On May 2 of this year, I paid Newsmax $ 4,350, in advance, for an advertising campaign. They pulled it at the last second. “Why?” They said it was because they wanted “to move to the Center”.
I accuse all leftist website-based news organizations of intentional bias – like Talkingpointsmemo.com. On April 26th, they requested a review copy of Dreams from My Real Father, which we provided, but instead they illegally copied parts of the film and put them You Tube, and wrote that now people don’t need to buy the film.
I also accuse all the main stream print media, like the Washington Post, the New York Times, Newsweek, Time Magazine, all their ilk, of intentionally suppressing the truth about Barack Obama’s history and agenda and refusal to cover my findings.
The public looks to all of the news organizations in this building, the National Press Club, for truth. However, an astounding number, almost all of them, have all failed to live up to the Journalist’s Creed, and thus failed their responsibility to the public. Only a very few news organizations, like WorldNet Daily, Drudge Report, USA Survival and a handful of independent journalists like Jack Cashill, have done their jobs as journalists – with courage and honesty.
Report the Truth Now
My message to the journalists, then, here at the National Press Club is:
Don’t suppress the truth, it is vitally important.
America needs a truthful press, unafraid.
America is worth it!
Take any risk to expose the truth, about a candidate or even a sitting President.
And what is the truth?
- All evidence points to Barack Obama building his political career upon a fairy tale. There was no Obama family, he is not the son of a Kenyan goat herder.
- All evidence points to a sham marriage to cover an illicit affair between Ann Dunham and Frank Marshall Davis.
- All evidence indicates that Barack Obama was raised and indoctrinated by Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist Party USA Propagandist, during his formative years.
- All evidence indicates Barack Obama has pursued the Dreams from his Real Father.
And what are those dreams?
They are the forced imposition of a classic Stalinist Marxist agenda upon America at home and abroad.
And what is the history of Marxism?
Ladies and Gentlemen, the results are already in!
Marxism leads to economic ruin, and the biological destruction of the populations in societies that have employed the Marxist model.
American Journalists have a key role to play in revealing the truth, and they must do so immediately without further delay. Obama’s style is to minimize, misdirect, and outright lie about damaging information about his past. America needs honest journalism now more than ever, so the public can the public understand what Obama means by “change” and “fundamentally transforming America.”
I call upon all news organizations and journalists in this building, the National Press Club, to live up to the Journalists creed. Nothing is more important at this late hour – not playing it safe, not worrying about advertising contracts for medications, nothing. The future of America is at stake.
Obama and the Subprime Mortgage Crisis
Not only does the media refuse to look at Obama’s personal and political foundations, they refuse to even look at simple facts of the current campaign. For example, when speaking of the economy, Obama says:
“My opponent wants to go back to the policies which got us into this mess.” and
“The Free Market doesn’t work”
A journalist only has to recite simple facts:
1 – The major cause of the economic meltdown was the subprime mortgage debacle, and Obama was in on it, on the ground floor.
2 – Obama was asked about his role with Acorn during the 2008 campaign.  He was not truthful when he said his law firm only represented Acorn to sue the State of Illinois to implement the Motor-Voter Act – and recall that nine of the 9/11 hijackers used this to registered to vote, allowing them to get US Identification.
2 – In 1995 Obama alsop represented Acorn in suing Citibank, forcing them to lower their lending standards to lend to minorities even if they were unqualified borrowers. Acorn immediately took this model to HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros, who convinced President Clinton to require Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to force all banks across the system to lower their lending standards. This Acorn model, that Obama helped create, crashed the economy 12 years later, no the free markets.
This was all by design. It was part of the socialist strategy taught at the socialist conferences Obama attended in the early 1980’s, to use minorities and the poor to “collapse Capitalism”. “Problem solving” and “fair play” were the new code words that socialists learned. The strategy was to move the Democratic party to the far left, and embrace socialism as their natural ideology. Obama now uses terms like “helping middle class families”. Simply speaking, socialist economies do not have a middle class! They have just one big lower class with a handful of political elites controlling the wealth.
Going Direct to the American People
I have received hundreds of emails from concerned Americans, the following is from a Vietnam Veteran:
Dear Mr. Gilbert,
I was very mad after I watched your DVD. You have cracked the code surrounding Obama and the Marxist mission he is on.
We are the verge of losing the constitution. Freedom and liberty are in jeopardy. As a Vietnam war veteran, I ask, what did I fight for?
Please, can you get this information out to millions? We Americans need it. It is our only hope!
Bern Nilson
Denver, Colorado
Because of great Americans like Bern, and because almost all levels of the media are suppressing the information in Dreams from My Real Father, I am announcing today that my distribution company is planning to send a free copy of the DVD in the US mail direct to millions of households. The process has already begun. Within three weeks, hundreds of thousands DVDs will be mailed across the United States until every American sees this DVD and understands the deadly Marxist dreams Obama has for us, from his real father, Frank Marshall Davis.
Again, for any journalist in this building, here at the National Press Club, a Pulitzer Prize can be yours, just report the facts.
Please visit the film website, there is the breaking news every week, and you can also order the DVD at obamasrealfather.com
Thank you, and God Bless America.

The CIA, James Holmes, MKULTRA, and truth-serum torture

The CIA, James Holmes, MKULTRA, and truth-serum torture

  •   The Alex Jones Channel Alex Jones Show podcast Prison Planet TV Infowars.com Twitter Alex Jones' Facebook Infowars store
Jon Rappoport
Infowars.com
March 18, 2013
In 2002, author Martin Lee wrote an article for Common Dreams: “Truth Serum and Torture.”
It could have been written yesterday, because now a Colorado judge has stated that, if James Holmes pleads not guilty by reason of insanity to the Aurora murders, state psychiatrists can subject him to drugs that will “help him remember his state of mind” at the time of the shootings. The drugging will reveal whether he really was insane that night last summer at the Aurora theater.
Well, when it comes to so-called truth drugs like sodium pentothal, sodium amatyl, scopolamine, mescaline, LSD, and hypnotic benzodiazepines, where are the pros with real experience?
At run-of-the-mill psychiatric wards? No. Those hacks in the Colorado state hospital system have rarely if ever tried out the drugs for the purpose of getting at the truth.
But the CIA has up-to-date interrogators around, and thousands of pages of MKULTRA (mind control) literature, that constitute the best experience in this dark art.
Therefore, it’s highly probable the CIA or their independent contractors will be sitting in on James Holmes’ drug-induced sessions, supervising them, giving advice. It’s the Ghostbusters motto: “Who ya gonna call?”
Martin Lee points out that, even before the CIA was created, its forerunner, the OSS, tried out a cannabis extract as a truth serum. This was back in the 1940s. Lee goes on to trace US intelligence-agency and military “leadership” in truth-drug testing.
In 1947, the US Navy Project Chatter, borrowing from Nazi studies, moved on to experiments with mescaline as a truth drug.
Shortly after its inception, in the late 1940s, the CIA used drugging with sedatives, plus hypnosis, to extract secrets from agents. This method, and barbiturates alternated with amphetamines, were soon rolled up into the infamous and overarching MKULTRA mind-control program, with its hundreds of sub-projects. MKULTRA was all about developing chemical means of eliciting truth from prisoners, along with creating unconscious assassins.
In the 1950s, the CIA employed LSD in Operation Artichoke. People don’t know or forget that, while LSD failed to qualify as a reliable truth serum, its use in very high doses produced extreme terror in people being interrogated. It was this effect, as straight-out torture, the CIA capitalized on. The idea was simple. Demand the truth and threaten with extreme-dose LSD as the alternative.
We shouldn’t discount the possibility that James Holmes, once he enters an insanity plea, and is sent away to a secure hospital for psychiatric eval, will be given drugs that produce the kind of mad panic that will convince him to say, in court, exactly what his handlers want him to say.
Back in 2002, Martin Lee wrote that William Webster, former head of the CIA and FBI, was recommending the use of truth drugs on terrorism suspects under US detention. This statement spurred a significant amount of media coverage at the time.
But in the ensuing years, very few people have bothered to ask the key question: Why should we assume that waterboarding and isolation tanks and sleep deprivation are the only torture methods the CIA/military are employing on these prisoners? What about the drugs?
In particular—because no drug has ever been found to reliably elicit the truth—what about the use of drugs to produce panic and wild terror, as a way to force people to tell what they know, or confess to what they’re told to.
It’s obvious, given the history, that US interrogators have, in fact, been using these drugs on detained terrorism suspects.
Lee ends his prescient article with a chilling quote from former CIA chief of counterterrorism, Vince Cannistraro, that reflects directly the James Holmes situation in 2013:
“Once you’ve used [truth drugs] for national security cases, then it becomes a standard. Sodium pentathol is not that effective, and so you have to use something stronger, It’s a short skip and a hop to LSD, or something worse.”
These drugs are certainly being used in national security cases. Therefore, as Cannistraro predicts, they are now entering the mainstream as the standard. The astonishing statement from the court judge in the James Holmes case, ordering his truth-drug interrogation, couldn’t be a clearer signal:
full-speed ahead in chemically inducing a suspect to give up his right not to incriminate himself;
forget the fact that such truth-drug interrogations are notoriously unreliable;
forget the damage suspects can incur from the effects of the drugs;
and most of all, forget the fact that, although truth drugs don’t work reliably, they can be used to create such terror that the suspect will do or say anything to escape more dosing.
Many people have observed that James Holmes already looks like a man who has been heavily drugged, while in custody.
Whatever Holmes knows about what happened last summer at the Aurora theater; whatever he doesn’t know; whatever role he played or didn’t play; whether he was in the theater doing the shooting or was the patsy set up by professionals to take the fall for the murders…
All of this can be twisted, on strong enough drugs, to cause him to say anything his handlers want him to say in court.
The psychiatrists who are working on Holmes will need advice on methods. They’ll go to, or be approached by, the people who have the track record, the history, the experience: the CIA.
And once that move is made, it will be very much like saying the Holmes case has national-security implications.
In so far as the Aurora murders have been used to try to snuff out the 2nd Amendment, the case is definitely the gun-grabbers’ version of national security. They want no mistakes in Holmes’ performance.
They want him to enter a plea of non-guilty by reason of insanity. Then they want him, after his stay in a mental hospital for”testing and observation,” to come back to court, and state that is now aware he killed and wounded many people. Then the State will dispose of him one way or another and he will never again see the light of day.
Na├»ve people place false barriers between the practice of psychiatry, institutional confinement, coerced admissions of guilt, torture, brain-twisting drugs, and the CIA’s MKULTRA. They swim together in the same stream far more often than Americans want to admit, or want to know about.
This horrendous stream flows through the James Holmes case.
Other than using drugs to force him to follow orders, what possible value can this “narcoanalytic review” have in a court of law? Think about it. If Holmes enters an insanity plea, thus triggering the ensuing truth-drug interrogation, he’ll already be stating he is crazy. So the drugs will be administered to a crazy man, on the premise that can he recall correctly, or reveal correctly, his state of mind at the time he committed murders.
Is there any defense lawyer in the country who couldn’t cast doubt on the reliability of such evidence?
No, the Holmes case is now being used to put straight-out drug-torture of defendants, in order to gain confessions, into the mainstream of American legal practice.
There is one more long-shot factor here. It’s nearly unthinkable, but it should be mentioned. Many people have found evidence that the Aurora murders were staged. Without recounting the details, suppose there is one more piece of stagework left: the truth drugs used on Holmes are shown to have created brain damage.
If Holmes’ lawyers claim that the prosecution irreparably destroyed their client, they can move for a mistrial.
Can you imagine the uproar, chaos, and destabilization that would result from a declaration of a mistrial, a no-verdict in the case, and Holmes walking out of prison? Or his remand to a psychiatric facility as a permanently damaged person—but without a guilty verdict?

Washington, NATO seen as top global threats


Editor’s Note: The following report is excerpted from Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin, the premium online newsletter published by the founder of WND. Subscriptions are $99 a year or, for monthly trials, just $9.95 per month for credit card users, and provide instant access for the complete reports.
WASHINGTON – The Russian military doctrine adopted in 2010 after the “reset” with the Obama administration considers the U.S. and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, or NATO, the main threats Moscow must be prepared to fight, according to Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.
This is the assessment of Alexei Arbatov, a former Duma, or parliament, deputy and currently head of the Center for International Security of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Recent events have underscored the prospect due to the firing of Russian Defense Minister Anatoly Serdyukov, who served under then-President Dmitry Medvedev, who now is the Russian prime minister.
Russian President Vladimir Putin replaced Serdyukov with Sergei Shoigu, who is more in line with Putin’s outlook on the future role and capabilities of the military.
Under Medvedev, Serdyukov had a different approach, which was to more closely work with the West in an effort to obtain Western technologies and know-how to modernize not only Russian infrastructure but also the military.
All of that went away with Putin’s more confrontational approach with the U.S. and his efforts to blunt American nfluence in Central Asia, which Moscow claims is in its sphere of influence.
Putin also aims to recreate a post-Soviet empire by incorporating the former Soviet republics into a Eurasian Union, a duty-free zone that he sees rivaling the European Union in years to come.
According to Arbatov, Russia’s defense and foreign policies now reflect that Russia is surrounded by enemies led by the U.S. Moscow is concerned that the U.S. and its NATO allies will invade Russia at any time.
Arbatov said the U.S. is using the pro-democracy opposition inside Russia to subvert Putin’s regime and intends to use that opposition to invade Russia.
In addition, he said that the West intends to use military power to seize Russia’s natural resources.
Instead of looking to the West for modern technologies, Arbatov said Moscow will use its own technologies to improve Russian military capability in the future.
Already under Putin, there has been an increase in the work to target and divert militarily critical Western technologies, reminiscent of its actions at the height of the Cold War during the Soviet period.
To offset NATO’s eastward expansion, Moscow intends to bolster its security arrangement under the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, or SCO, which is comprised of China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan.
Just as the 2010 Russian military doctrine still holds a nuclear weapons deterrent as the cornerstone of Russian security, there have been increasing indications that Moscow will be looking to develop more of a conventional force to counter what it perceives are new, more conventional threats.
WND/G2Bulletin recently pointed out that Putin doesn’t just want to reform the Russian military but to boost its capabilities and to deal with the new realities stemming from the Arab Spring and its military experiences based on the 2008 Russian invasion of Georgia.

Democrats throw in towel on assault weapons ban

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., has significantly weakened gun control legislation, stripping a provision that would have banned assault-style weapons and high-capacity gun clips.
The move will make it easier for the Senate to pass a milder gun control bill that deals mostly with controlling who can purchase a gun. It also spares red-state Senate Democrats running in 2014 from having to vote on a bill that could cost them re-election.
"An assault weapons ban was always a poison bill that was great for the White House to talk about but politically damaging for those vulnerable Democrats representing red states to support," Ron Bonjean, a Republican political strategist and former House and Senate leadership aide, told The Washington Examiner.
The Senate will vote on a gun control bill measure in April, but it won't include a proposal authored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., that would have made it illegal to purchase military-style assault weapons and gun clips that can hold more than 10 rounds.
Feinstein announced the provision in the weeks following the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting, standing with shooting victims and law enforcement agents near a wall displaying some of the 157 assault-style weapons she hoped to make illegal. Feinstein's measure cleared the Senate Judiciary Committee last week with the support of the panel's Democratic majority, but no Republicans voted for it. Beyond the committee, some Democrats from pro-gun states were against it.
Reid told Feinstein there was not enough support to pass the weapons and gun clip ban in the full Senate, where 60 votes are required to stop a filibuster. Democrats control 55 votes.
Feinstein's measure, "using the most optimistic numbers, has less than 40 votes," Reid said Tuesday. "That's not 60. I have to get something on the floor so we can have votes on that issue and the other issues that I've talked about. And that's what I'm going to try to do."
The Senate, Reid said, will most likely vote on the bill "sometime after Easter." That bill would likely widen background checks, increase federal funds for school security and raise penalties for gun trafficking.
Feinstein's gun control and gun clip provisions may be voted on separately as amendments, lawmakers said. The amendments would have little chance of passing but would at least make it possible for Congress to pass the more moderate gun control legislation by not attaching it to Feinstein's proposal.
Feinstein told reporters she is disappointed, but the move did not surprise political strategists, who note that even President Obama has suggested in recent weeks that a ban on assault weapons would be politically impossible.
Reid, a gun owner from one of the most pro-gun states in the nation, always refrained from a pledge to put the assault weapons ban on the Senate floor, even in the days following the Sandy Hook shooting.
"Reid has never been a fan of the assault weapons ban," said Jon Ralston, a political commentator and columnist based in Las Vegas.
"Not only does this move dovetail with Reid's own beliefs on gun control," Ralston said, "but it allows Democrats to vote on something that most people support, even in red states, and it allows them to vote against things viewed unfavorably by their constituents."

Losing Our Sovereignty

Losing Our Sovereignty


Written by on Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 1:01 PM EDT in Articles
nascoOn January 19, 2011, Kansas City Mayor, Mark Funkhouser, through the presentation, “Kansas City’s economic future: Creating jobs by replacing government meddling with organic growth”, called for opening city transition into the North America SuperCorridor Coalition’s (NASCO) vision.  Kansas City Mayor Sly James declared the week of May 16 World Trade Week. At the national level, President Barack Obama declared the week of May 15–21, 2011, National World Trade Week.
Due to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) signed into law in 1994, Congress and local governments are working against the people and sovereignty of our States and Nation through the funding of non-profit organizations looking to unite Canada, Mexico, and the United States.  Both NAFTA and the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America center on how America is to correspond with Mexico and Canada in order to “improve cooperative efforts among the three countries in areas related to economic prosperity and the protection of the environment, the food supply, and public health.”  There has yet to be a signed treaty or document, signifying the final step in becoming what some call “The North American Union.”
However, the layout from NASCO may be why the Midwest may not see an economic collapse. NASCO, born under President Bill Clinton and NAFTA, describes prosperity yet forgives the sovereignty and freedom we as citizens lose. NASCO is a political ploy to keep the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America alive and breathing.
According to NASCO, North America’s Corridor Coalition members have been leaders at the forefront of uniting public and private sectors to address critical national and international trade, transportation, security and environmental issues.  NASCO’s goal is to improve the existing highways, freight lines, and canals in order to stretch transportation from the very base of Mexico, through the Heartland of the United States (Kansas City), and branching across Canada.  NASCO is devoted to uniting public and private sectors to address critical national and international trade, transportation, security and environmental issues.
Our country’s sovereignty is under attack due to Congress, local governments, and private companies funding non-profit organizations with international goals involving Canada, United States, and Mexico.

DHS questioned over decision to let Saudi passengers skip normal passport controls








A Department of Homeland Security program intended to give "trusted traveler" status to low-risk airline passengers soon will be extended to Saudi travelers, opening the program to criticism for accommodating the country that produced 15 of the 19 hijackers behind the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
Sources voiced concern about the decision to the Investigative Project on Terrorism, which issued a report Wednesday on the under-the-radar announcement -- which was first made by Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano after meeting in January with her Saudi counterpart. According to the IPT, this would be the first time the Saudi government has been given such a direct role in fast-tracking people for entry into the United States.
"I think you have radical Wahhabism in certain elements in Saudi Arabia, and I think to be more lenient there than in other places would be a mistake," Rep. Frank Wolf told the Investigative Project on Terrorism. "There were 15 [hijackers] from that country, and there is a lot taking place in that region."
Only an exclusive handful of countries enjoy inclusion in the Global Entry program -- Canada, Mexico, South Korea and the Netherlands. According to the IPT, some officials are questioning why Saudi Arabia gets to reap the benefits of the program, when key U.S. allies like Germany and France are not enrolled; Israel has reached a deal with the U.S., but that partnership has not yet been implemented.
Any Saudi travelers cleared through the program will be able to bypass the normal customs line after providing passports and fingerprints. The status lasts for five years.
The decision is a turnaround, the IPT notes, from when Saudi Arabia was briefly placed on a list of countries whose U.S.-bound travelers would face higher scrutiny, in the wake of the failed Christmas Day bombing attempt in 2009.
But Napolitano spoke highly of "the bond between the United States and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia" when she announced the change in January.
"By enhancing collaboration with the government of Saudi Arabia, we reaffirm our commitment to more effectively secure our two countries against evolving threats while facilitating legitimate trade and travel," Napolitano said.
The Global Entry program was launched in 2008 to expedite pre-approved passengers through the airport customs and security process when they arrive in the U.S. The program is designed to weed out low-risk passengers and enable authorities to zero in on those who may be more likely to pose a threat.
But the program has sparked controversy in the past. Critics objected in late 2010 when Mexican citizens were included in the program, raising concerns that drug cartels would quickly learn how to exploit loopholes in the plan. DHS officials, however, insisted at the time that people who attain trusted traveler status don't get a free pass and are still subject to random searches.
The program allows travelers who have undergone a thorough vetting process -- fingerprinting, background checks, interviews with customs agents, etc.-- to attain a low-risk status that allows them to skip the line at customs and complete their entry process at an automatic kiosk.
