Obama nominated John Brennan says: "Drones are just the beginning of it"

Robert Greenwald, director and founder of Brave New Films: "No jury, no lawyers, no protection. 65 year old woman in a field, 178 children killed by drones... think about the number of parents and relatives of those children..."

perpetual war

so true, thats what i was thinking. they KNOW that drones cause more harm and make more new enemies. that is why they are increasing drone strikes. what better option to make new enemies and continue this endless war, than to do this from the comfort of your command center !?

We don't need to get through

We don't need to get through to the liberals. We greatly outnumber and outweapon them. Fuck them.

My Thoughts Exactly

Sometimes I wish I hadn't ever read 1984 because it is too real. I honestly think that Orwell had a guide to go by and didn't make his book up. The elite have had plans for a long time. Who's to say Orwell didn't get the inside scoop and write a book on it? Just a thought.

skippy

He had a very easy plan to go

He had a very easy plan to go by, Communist Russia. All of these totalitarian states are the same. He knew very well as we all do how the USSR was founded and how they treated their populous. We see it happening here, yes. But Orwell was not some great mystic. He could see it all around him. I like Orwell, but you give him a bit too much credit.

Makes me think of Hitler's V2 rockets coupled with "1984".

And of course, it will just be a matter of time until they are built and used by some terrorist organization other than the federal government.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.

Drones

I'll bet the CIA wishes they had these drones in Dallas, November 22, 1963. they could have killed JFK AND all of the witnesses and blamed it on Barry Goldwater. Just think! No need for patsies! Zapruder and his camera would be just some residue on the grass in front of the Texas Schoolbook Depository. The possibilities for eliminating political enemies are endless! You are only limited by your conscience. drone on!!

“...taxes are not raised to carry on wars, but that wars are raised to carry on taxes”
Thomas Paine, Rights of Man

That gave me the chills. What

That gave me the chills. What an amazing newpeice. one of the most responsible newspieces i have ever seen before. He presented the issue and took to moral highground and called out the president. THAT is how it is done guys. That is how you start the revolution. If they wanted to, the media could stop the corruption and put the human race on the path to the greatest happiest and most prosperous period in human history. It is all up to them. Its the opposite, the fearmongering and the lies, that takes us to what we have today.

You know

while I support your sentiment, I actually think it is wrong to point fingers at any particular group. I believe that the ones that seem to have the power are only there because of the people infrastructure that puts them there. Meaning that if everyone as a collective didn't support the values which perpetuate the current system, we'd have a different one !

Freedom is a byproduct of acceptance - judge not.

I hope everybody has listened CAREFULLY to ObaMARX

I hope everybody has listened CAREFULLY to ObaMARX when he said:

"[...]We need a legal architecture[...]and we'll need congressional help in order to do that[...]"

He really meant it.

Between-the-lines translation info complement:

"we need to find some more sources of money to steal from, for the bribes of corrupt Congress we'll keep buying, or to find some more excuses to keep printing and not put in the books."

He/they don't even bother HIDING their plans FOR A SECOND any more.

I'm now past being speechless on THE STUNNING CONFIDENCE they have in their PACE OF PLANS TO GRIND DOWN THE CONSTITUTION.

TRAITORS.

No prob

The senate is working on ending fillabuster by not fillbustering as their own rules call for-

the smartest thing i've ever

the smartest thing i've ever heard Ed say probably

All paper money eventually returns to its real intrinsic value, zero. - Voltaire

Even democrats have a hard

Even democrats have a hard time rationalizing this policy. Many don't, but still rationalize Obama, probably feel he is misguided. This might be true, but of all the irrational policies, our foreign policy murders innocent blood. The cries of the innocent goes up to God and there will be a reckoning for that blood. Those who are responsible might be ignorant and justify the collateral damage. Obama must be ignorant to hire Brennan. How long will this excuse go on before someone tells him? Or if he has been told, how long before repentance? Or is is true ethos that politicians have a "license to kill"?

.

Ed is very careful to say "WE" when referring to the felonies this adminstration is committing.
Never ONCE does he say "The obama administration".
They say CIA at one point but always "we" are commiting these acts like we are all a part of it, and should be blamed.

Just like when smucklebee said at the debates:
"when we make a mistake we make it as a country united".

"NO! When we make a mistake we have the responsibility to correct the mistake through representatives- not continue it" Ron Paul shot back.

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

It is only "we" if you are

It is only "we" if you are admitting that you are still complicit in the behavior. If you disagree and attempt correct your mistakes then you are no longer responsible. Was Schindler responsible for the Germany's actions? Would he say "we" are doing this?

.

"It is only "we" if you are admitting that you are still complicit in the behavior."

you continued where my brain stopped.
That was perfect.
ED SHULTZ IS COMPLICIT and hope a jury finds that slob and all the others GUILTY AS CHARGED!
They should lock oreilly, limbaugh, hannity and levin in the same cell with maddow, mathews, shultz and odonell.
and have a continuously operating video in their gitmo dayroom running on cspan 24/7.

"What if the American people learn the truth" - Ron Paul

Opinion will change

But unfortunately it won't be until the drones are targeting us. Then we will see the full picture of the monster we let grow. And maybe then the term collateral damage will be traded in for the word VICTIMS.

Never heard the MSM talk like

There's a point at which hypocrisy reaches critical mass and the hypocrite must finally address it. That's what happened here.

Especially from Obama's biggest butt licker, Ed Schultz

I wonder why he is doubting and disliking his saviour's policies.

The truth has a way of even opening the eyes of the blinded

journalists!

Its good to see Ed Schultz and others questioning this madness. However, he might lose his job.

However again...if that were to happen...at least he can sleep at night.

Good for him to call this into question. Although I can't stand him, I salute him for this.

Time to INVESTIGATE the investigators of 9/11. PROSECUTE the prosecutors. EXPOSE the cover-up.

Desensitization, perhaps.

That's all I can think of.

Well duh!

Ron Paul explains the damage that an interventionist policy can have when it comes to violent blowback.

Or will it take another 178 dead children for them to get it?

I wonder if Japan will ask for some drones to use against China?

We are going to see very soon just how stupid America can be. With western economies crumbling under fiat currency systems, the appetite for banker-caused war increases.

Japan Warns It May Fire On Chinese Aircraft Over Disputed Islands; China Retorts: "There Will Be No Second Shot"

Moments ago, Japan says it may fire warning shots and take other measures to keep foreign aircraft from violating its airspace in the latest verbal blast between Tokyo and Beijing that raises concerns that a dispute over hotly contested islands could spin out of control.

If private banks profit from wars today

what will prevent truly private banks from starting wars (against weaker opponents with rich natural resources) under free society? Would that be private security firms, private arbitration or US military?
