+1. And I'd like to introduce the resolution

"Before the so-called People Government decides TO GO IN BED with the Globalist CLUBS and invites greed-drunk THIEVES to join in the BLOOD ORGY, they should THINK TWICE.

For the People WILL make them ACCOUNTABLE for their CRIMES against humanity.

Them, BEAST."

With our 'butt into everyone's business Congress,'....

there is no way. Only bankruptcy will end this tyranny, IMO.

You're absolutely right. The

You're absolutely right. The US govt. basically claims jurisdcition over the entire planet. We are the proto-one world government. And yes, those assholes actually don't realize that 16 plus trillion in debt is going to sink us while they continue to play latter day Roman Empire.

The # of co-sponsors doubled over the last 5 days. Ugh!

That's more trouble.

6 months ago I was having a feeling of a 3rd WW.

Today, I am ulmost certain that there will be a WWIII. The way I see it is N Korea will attack South Korea, US will attack Syria, Isreal will Attack Iran, China and Russia will declare war on Isreal/USA/EU, and walla, all hell breaks loose. Can I be wrong with any of this? I sure hope so, but every passing day it looks like the path we are headed towards is this very scenereo.

Thank you for this post, though.

And what you point out thru it.

Even if it was so totally predictable.

They surely will not let a staged crisis go to waste.

Ulterior motives is the name of this repeated game.

"Loyalty's worth more than wealth...in a world where...people be all for self."


This is just ridiculous! The HOUSE run on the internet platform now? Apparently a vid is all it take for us to wage war... I mean "capture random leader who has disappeared about 5-6 years ago for actions that was done since 3 thousands years ago by many other than KONY"?

Another Operation Iraqi Liberation?

Seriously, we're broke! Oh wait, the Military Industrial Complex isn't...

The Globalists want AFRICA


Who else on here viewed the film of our "Humanitarian Mission" in Libya? When our drones killed tens of thousands of Libyans...

With the neutralization of Libya, Egypt, and Somalia,.....

Africa is like an opened door to just walk through and take what's inside.

Was Kony 2012 the setup for this new adventure in madness?

What a difference one week makes.

Cyril's picture

I guess you're just teasing asking a question


you know well the answer of :

Of course Kony 2012 (trademark, Federal Reserve insured) wasn't "the setup", not the only one building block thereof, anyway.

It's just a piece. Just a bit.

Among others, in the long list of their deception tooling.




It's up to us to show them it won't work this time, at this corner stone of World History we are at now.

No, won't work for them any longer.

ugandans have no idea why people are talking about this guy who they haven't seen or heard from in five to six years

from the resolutuion:
"(A) expanding the number of capable regional military forces deployed to protect civilians and pursue LRA commanders;"


so we are about to embark on expanding AMERICAN forces in Africa.

Amen to that, ghost.

The gov. never seems to stop anything. They always either start something new or expand something that should never have started in the first place.
