Bump

for brave Jeremy.

I hate to say it but , there

I hate to say it but , there seems to be sick people, with sick excuses..
They will have NO excuse when the KING is revieled..
Good people do Good deeds
and are no respecter of person

"Renta cops to protect fiefdoms of Agenda 21"

Our country has been usurped by propaganda, thievery and thuggary.
Not a single military present. What a sick joke.
Add to that, wilderness extinction and corporate food.

fief·dom (ffdm) noun
1. The estate or domain of a feudal lord.
2. Something over which one dominant person or group exercises control: "long the independent head of a powerful fiefdom within the Police Department" (David Burnham).

And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”

and then some...

Don't get hung up on Blackwater (Xe). There are many other contracting companies doing the same thing, namely Triple Canopy and DynaCorp.

Then there are those that are building infrastructure and fleecing the US taxpayer.

Bechtel Corp.
Halliburton Co.
American International Contractors Inc.
Fluor Corp.
Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co.
Vinnell Corp. (a Northrop Grumman Corp. subsidiary)

Now, only if Jeremy can apply the same journalistic integrity...

to doing a REAL 9/11 investigation, and suspend all his "a priori" prejudices, plus learn a thing or two about Austrian economics...

Asking too much? Sure, but why not? But, anyone claiming to be for "seeking the truth," must follow it wherever, or whomever it may lead to, no?

I understand, everyone has their own set of limits. However, for the life of me, while I "get it," but still don't "get" how it is that people assume a priori that it is unfathomable that factions within gvt, or those whom have hijacked govt can possibly commit such atrocities upon itself, when history and facts tell us that false flagging is gvt's damn near bread and butter?

The REAL question some of these people should ask is: what difference does it make for the same group people who are willing to LIE and torture to MISlead a whole nation to CONgressionally undeclared wars/occupasions, to have 3000+ our own, murdered, make TRILLIONS in the process, in a span of THREE years, vs. murdering 3000+ of our own, make TRILLIONS thereafter, in a span of ONE day? Really, what is the difference, as far as "they" are concerned?

They honestly "cannot believe some people would be THAT evil?" No wonder they're naive enough to believe ANYTHING gvt says; NOT read HR3200 and accept whatever the gvt tells them, propagandize them to believe anything, at face value.

Regardless, Big Ups to Scahill, nevertheless, for pointing out the obvious on national TV/cable.

Seems the only honest "liberal/progressives" still stuck in the false "left vs. right" paradigm, who are willing to hold Lord oBUSHma to the same standard of criticism as the last village idiot, are BOTH Constitutional scholars and attorneys Jonathan Turley and Glenn Greenwald, and Scahill, and Naomi Wolf.

Ms.Wolf is still a work in progress, when it comes to acknowledging just how big the extent of the martial law apparatus and COG plans have been in effect for a long time, by the NWO in our Republic. However, I can think of no better ally in the "left" who has come along the furthest, by far; I still would like to approach her as a potential liberty/FREEDOM anit-NWO ally, rather than an entrenched ideologue.

Glenn Greenwald, however, really has proven himself to be THE BEST out of all of them. Not to mention, giving OUR Good Doc. credit, wherever and whenever it is warranted, when the Doc. makes a stance FOR the Constitution(which is everyday), especially during W's reign.

After watching the WHOLE hour of that episode of Real Time...

one thing I really would wish Jeremy Scahill would do, is simply come out and say, that BlackWater, for all practical purposes, IS de facto, CIA. Not "acting as a paramilitary," or "the [Bush] Administration's private military wing." Should simply just state the obvious: BlackWater IS a CIA operation. Period.

There should be no more pretense about what BlackWater is, or has always been: like, Air America, during Vietnam era, it's just another CIA black op. PMC/Mercs exist for the sole purpose of skirting CONgressional oversight, and to legitimize plausible deniability so The Executive Branch and CIA do not get into trouble.

Calling BlackWater a "private military contractor," is like calling RAND Corp. an independent thinktank. IT's just CIA's upper echelon's CON to make REAL money off of what they'd normally do at the CIA. Clever murderous thieves, so they delude...

On Real Time, Chuck the other "journalist" kept saying "story," when referring to reporting "news." As if to say, "fact," or truth is irrelevant, but HOW one frames a "news" into a "Story," that is his paramount concern: as in, how best to LIE to the American audience.

Scahill kept countering Chuck by saying "yeah, it's called the truth." Of course, I would have added "Maybe you should try it sometimes, Chuck."

What was even more sickeningly hilarious was Chuck's body language: he literally seemed aghast that Jeremy does not understand the "story" part. He actually seemed surprised that Scahill did not "get" that he should edit and throw the "idiot public" a softball. As if, incredulously telling himself 'Jeremy, you mean, you don't understand that this is how this game is played?' As if the more he mumbled to himself the repetitive rationale of "...well that's the [story] you were [told] to frame..." that, that will somehow make it come true, and make himself feel like a real journalist for a change. I guess such concept is foreign to an indy journalist like Jeremy. Utterly pathetic of that daft lad, Chucky boy.

If you guys get a chance, you should watch the rest of that episode. But, please have a nerfball ready, in case you feel the need to throw something after hearing a concentrated dose of ignoramuses deluding they're geniuses; as if acting like you know something is same thing as ACTUALLY knowing something.

Some GLARINGLY apparent impressions: the Dem.CONgresswoman from IL has NO business being in CONgress. Sam Harris? The Mr. Atheist-in-Chief reactionary to the predicatable pro-Romans:13 Christian Dominionists and pro-faith based initiatives fake-ass christians lemmings of the BushRegime, is an arrogant turd. Maher? NEVER was funny. Leno? Actually funnier when not reading off what his writers at TonightShow scribed for him to teleprompt off of. Chuck is, NO where NEAR being even remotely considered a journalist (no surprise there). Scahill, wins more and more respect from this Ron Paul Constitutionalist every time I hear him speak, though I still reserve my disdain for him for avoiding 9/11 like a plague, not to mention, like a typical false paradigm stuck "liberal," don't understand proper Cause vs. Effect, when it comes to economic issues and really getting the real culprit behind the malaise, as well as solutions.

Let us not even get started on the pathetic jabs the entire panel took, moronically, and frankly lame attempt to disparage gunowners. I mean this was kindergarten comedy hour. If you're gonna come after us, at least match Bill Hick's level of gusto.

On a side note, Arthur Frommer, the famed DIY how to travel on a budget travel guide publisher wants to boycott AZ, because of Chris, the Constitutionally aware citizen who donned an AR15. http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=1121568...

I think Arizonans, as well as ALL gunowners should return the favor.

As Maher commented on Hewitt, the CBS exec.prod. of 60 Min, he spoke of Rooney's commentary: Maher praised the notion that "news should TELL us what we OUGHT to know." Oh, you know, We, the moron Americans, cannot, or ARE NOT supposed to think on OUR own without the gvt or the media's explicit permissions. Gee, thanks for clarifying our role, Bill Maher, ya Napoleonic, uncouth midget! This elitist arrogant prick's pussified disposition is a glaring example of his deep worship of the STATE, and the Master-Slave dynamic: needing permission, siding with the bully in hopes he'd leave him alone. This idiot, while grateful that he had the Dr. on THREE time, but has no business calling himself a libertarian. Period.

I don't know if any of you remember his overreaction to the three or four 9/11 Truthers sneaking into his show about two years ago, after he on a previous episode basically called them mentally ill for DARE questioning the State. His body language and his verbal overreaction was typical of a slave living in relative comfort: he ordered his security to basically beat them up, like a little turd taking cover behind a meathead, all the while screaming like a toughguy, "kick his ass [for me]."

Worse, the idiots in his audience CHEERED for the studio security to take the Truthers away, by force. This is always something one observes in an oppressed population: their internal need to project strength to cover their obviously weak physical disposition, as manifest outwardly, however NOT against their tyrants, or their prisonguards, but against one of their own, just as the Romans did cheering the demise of gladiators. This is a true sickness of a forcefully disarmed populace, where the STATE and its enforcers reign supreme and its "subjects" cheer at the sight of one of their own being abused. Not surprised so many in jury these days, cannot seem to reflect on the suffering of citizen victims, in court cases regarding police brutality, civil disobedience, or tax protesters.

Oh no, Bill, we wouldn't want to repeat you losing job over a "Politically Incorrect" comment about 9/11 like you did on ABC, now would we, Bill?

My fellow DP'ers, we should, however, all take heart, to the extent to which NWO & their sycophants in gvt routinely LIE, create excuses, write legalese RATIONALIZING their illegal acts: it is because they NEED OUR POWER to grant them legitimacy. They NEED OUR APPROVAL. They need to CONVINCE us that their evil acts are just. Key word being "convince" us. Meaning we have to give them something they do not yet possess: OUR APPROVAL, our ACCEPTANCE.

Look how far they go to avoid being found out. Or, propagandizing to us, for approval, like a child caught in a lie, or acting like he/she doesn't want to be caught AFTER a lie. That alone should tell us of how much inherent powers that WE have.

Thanks

for all these insights.

Truth really IS treason in an empire of lies. Occasionally something "profane," something true, slips out...amazing how much Scahill was able to say. Then again, truth might be getting out more now, as we approach the time when government can very easily stifle dissent by incarceration and worse. What do they care, if people know how bad they are ahead of time?

They need our

approval for their power, thank you so much for writing this. WE HAVE THE POWER and we will become stronger and we continue to expose them to others.

Prepare & Share the Message of Freedom through Positive-Peaceful-Activism.

Scahill actually got a lot in there. Pretty impressive video.

At around 5:35 where he counters Obama's ridiculous "let's look forward, not backward" stance about the torture that took place, I like what Scahill said:

"You prevent future torture by prosecuting past acts."

reedr3v's picture

The reporters are all dodging the blame that

Scahill lays on BOTH Obama & Bush. The Christian thing is irrelevant. Blackwater would be impotent if it weren't funded for the Empire's wars.

Maybe you're a Christian ... Maybe Not

However, we Christians see a persecution coming in our near future. So, excuse us if we're a little worried about how this is being portrayed. The guy's a ZIONIST not a Christian!

Brave, but not too smart

Don't be surprised if you see this guy obituary pinned on the MSM one day.

I would like the World to

I would like the World to realize that This group in NO way is an example of Christian principles.Offensive armed force is Totaly against a true Christian principle.. Christ taught the complete opposite...The Crusades were wrong & this is wrong, as any connection to Christianity..Someone does not have a clue..
.Christ gave himself for everyone, Mulim,Hindo, Buddist, Jew & Gentile..HE came for ALL that realize they cannot possibly keep the 10 Commandments. In that Realm there is no respecter of person with GOD.
Christ taught to love & pray for our enemies..This does not mean become weak minded.
I want to hear about the re-establishment of the Knights Templar within Blackwater ranks ..The ones who were trying to recover Temple artifacts ..There is only one reason anyone would want these items ..It is not a Christian excuse....Christ himself has fullfilled all the LAW there is no more glory there..The glory is in the EMPTY tomb..OUR body is now the TEMPLE..Any other teaching if FALSE.. Not my words, either.
Good people do Good deeds
and are no respecter of person

The problem with your declaration is that Christian principals

have changed since 9/11. Talk about worshiping false gods, for a people that put their faith in God it amazes me that they allowed Bush to not only murder hundreds of thousands, but did so while fearing for themselves due to forked tongues and lies. What do they have to fear if God protects his children and has their final day set in his plan? Yet they take a man at his word that "he" is going to protect them by defying Gods very word? My family left the church due to hypocrisy, and I am glad that I can stand on the outside and look in to be honest to myself at what has occurred. There was a time when we “worshiped” Bush and Fox news, wanted all Muslims dead as the media preached, and then we awoke. Sickened at what we were, we strive now to be better people and to not take the bible as lip service but as a guide. We dropped connections to any denomination and simply worship in our own way.
Perhaps this book will enlighten any believer to what has occurred and is occurring. I don’t think anyone could have imagined that the most devout would be taken in, but in reality they have been, for fear of truth which was warned against in the bible. Check out this link to explain what would take me an hour to type out, and has led us out of fear and into a grander plan.

Christian principles did not change, people who identify

themselves as Christians did. My christian values stayed exactly the same after some tuesday a few years back. When have Americans EVER "stood up and stopped" anything??

I am pretty sure Americans "stood up", and among other

Items, blocked the amnesty bill for a single example of many. Pre 9/11 Christians would not have stood for Americas armed forces to preemptively move against another nation for energy resources and attacking innocents, without a catalyst. This is where the "principals" of those who identify themselves as Christians did in fact change in mass. I am not saying that all Christians changed, but were sold a bill of goods when threatened with the loss of their lives by the Bush administration from the terrorists, and sold a “global war on terror” that the majority supported. Also fed fear that Muslims (another religion) was basically after them, perhaps not directly, but indirectly they made the Iraqi people enemies of the Christian faith.

The owner of Blackwater himself has been accused of stating that his goal was to attack the Muslim faith, not much unlike a quasi crusade. So while I am with you on the fact that there are a minority that did not follow Bush's and the MSM propaganda, but in fact the majority did and continues to do so being led by partisan reigns. Being led by the likes of Hannity, Boortz, and other neo- conservative mouthpieces, the masses on the right still support not only both wars, but the preemptive policies that are in place, sold to them under the guise of fear, propaganda, and lies.

I speak of the people in the South that I know that are devout Christians, and to speak against these policies it is obvious that their minds are made, and like anything with these people, they will never admit fault or error. In my opinion, when “people who identify themselves as Christians” values change in a majority, then the principals themselves follow, and hence I hold my origianl "opinion" from what I have personally observed here at home, and across the nation.

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.

Christian Zionists have always been pro Israel, pro starting ...

Armageddon, to bring on their fictitious rapture. In other words, they're trying to bring on WWIII in the Middle East and think they will be sitting out the bloodbath on Cloud #9 while the rest of us suffer and die. A slew of televangelists preach this ... regular household names, keeping the myth alive ... the late Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Billy Graham (I believe), not to mention Tim LaVey (Left Behind series) and others who have made millions on books and speaking engagements.

It will be cold comfort to us (assuming they are successful in starting that war) that they'll be in the same pickle we'll be in.

Anytime you see a Protestant mouthpiece bowing to the politicians, you can assume it's one of them.

By the way, the crusades were not about attacking the Muslim faith, they were about regaining the Holy Land from Muslim invaders who were destroying all the holy places. The Muslims (often with Jewish help) were overrunning Christian Europe. Wherever they took over you got to convert or die.

Just had a thought ... check out how long the Christian Zionist movement has been around. I think you'll be surprized. Maybe it grew a bit after 9/11, but they've been the stooges of the Israelis a lot longer than that.

Falwell, Robertson, Graham, LaVey

All Masons, every one of them. Modern-day Pharisees.

Not surprised!

Thank you.

I applaud Scahill for bringing this issue to our attention. He is the only one brave enough to do it!

Bill Maher... tsk, tsk...

I hate to be the devil's advocate here and be the the negative nancy, but I seriously cant stand Bill Maher. Seriously (I am very open to hear people's thoughts on my comment), he is soooo left leaning and will turn everything left as fact and never has any good conservative or libertarian to debate him. I know nobody likes Bill Oreilly or Sean Hannity and ESPECIALLY Michael Medved, but AT LEAST, they ALWAYS have people on to debate them and I give them respect for that. Bill Maher, I have zero respect for because of this reason. Every time I hear his show, he makes us look like asses and even me, an un (Harvard, Princeton or Yale) graduate regular joe can whoop this guy in debate. I want to write his show and bet them an entire 3 month salary that I could refute 75% of his beliefs that always go unquestioned and hyper cheered and congratulated...

... Ok, now with Blackwater... I see what this guy is saying, but there was nobody on that could defend Blackwater, either! Bill Maher always believes if there is a problem, then we just need government to fix it. Even Ron Paul supported a bill that would authorize a private company to go find Bin Laden (ie Blackwater and others)! I am not saying Blackwater is good, I am just being neutral. Anything that is on Bill Maher's show, I automatically become skeptical just because of what I mentioned before. Its not a bad thing to have private industry do anything (even war). I am not saying that the founder of Blackwater is not a Christian supremiscist. My point is that we also cant prove that he is or isnt and just simply take the word of a left wing loon from Bill Maher's show (a left wing loon? On Bill MAHER'S SHOW?!?!? Shocking!!!). Thats all I have to say. Other than that, Bill Maher is actually a very intelligent guy! Imagine if he could put those brains to use in the liberty movement! Great things would happen! Too bad he is all about HUGE government and is completely unapologetic about it.

not everything coming out of

not everything coming out of the mouth of your friend is right

not everything coming out of the mouth of your enemy is wrong

not everything coming out of the mouth of an idiot is stupid

some day, you'll reach a point, where you can pull in information from any source, and on a case by case basis, decide if there's merit or truth to any given piece of information.

in this case, the damning discussion on blackwater is only the tip of the iceberg.

I like the way you put that! Excellent.

"I keep talking about equanimity. I can't stress how important it is. Equanimity is the ability to see Godliness in people whether they compliment us or insult us and so not react to the content of the comments, but strive to hear the message their Soul" - Doreen Dotan

Perhaps...

Once you are free from the false left/right paradigm and actually understand what Ron Paul and the the Freedom Movement are all about, you will understand.

You might think Hannity brings on people to debate, but it is a controlled debate ,and he and his writers know exactly how to work it so it fits into a set process. I have always been good recognizing propaganda techniques. Trust me, once you are actually awake, take the red pill, whatever, you will see things differently.

Plus, compare the interviews of Ron Paul with Hannity and O'Reilly and then watch the one with Maher and then tell me what propaganda techniques are used and how often. Maher may be to the left, frankly I don't even know what that means anymore since the NeoCons (Hannity, Limbaugh, Cheney, Bush, etc...) are extreme left as well (they just believe in Communism as opposed to socialism). But, this clip was almost completely about the guest and Maher didn't say much at all in the video - so I don't know how you can condemn him. I don't agree with Maher's positions most of the time - but he is an entertainer and I think he is very funny. As opposed to being on a "news" channel.
