Assassinating Americans - The DOJ Memo

The DOJ's rationale for assassinating American citizens.

The Obama administration has not only asserted exactly that power in theory, but has exercised it in practice. In September 2011, it killed US citizen Anwar Awlaki in a drone strike in Yemen, along with US citizen Samir Khan, and then, in circumstances that are still unexplained, two weeks later killed Awlaki's 16-year-old American son Abdulrahman with a separate drone strike in Yemen.

Like yesterday's news, or the prophets words

"There is nothing new under the sun"...

"What wilt thou say when he shall punish thee? for thou hast taught them to be captains, and as chief over thee: shall not sorrows take thee, as a woman in travail?
)And if thou say in thine heart, Wherefore come these things upon me? For the greatness of thine iniquity are thy skirts discovered, and thy heels made bare.
)Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.
)Therefore will I scatter them as the stubble that passeth away by the wind of the wilderness.
)This is thy lot, the portion of thy measures from me, saith the LORD; because thou hast forgotten me, and trusted in falsehood." Jeremiah 13:21-25

Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them. - Frederick Douglass

I find it refreshing

Even though it is old, the issue is more potent as we watch those among us who continue to give love and adoration to this man.

Do these people love and adore the killers of Sandy Hook more? What does one have to do to receive the love of these people who continue to work to avoid transparency on this admitted child killer and his undeniable act of murder of a US Citizen?

"Old news" oh, my bad... ok, I'll get back in line with the tribe.

If you can't do anything with this.... you can't do anything and are just wasting all of our time.
If we can't all agree this murder is more important to get action on, we don't deserve a place in society.

Go back to NY.

Simply Put - Emotionally Invested Brainwashing Works

I recently created a YouTube channel with the intention of creating and publishing some conspiracy related information, I just haven't had the time to start creating any films. Anyway, in this quoted channel description - that I after realized is too many words for a YouTube channel description lol so I'll have to put it in the About for any content I publish - the bolded quote is relevant to how most of those who are emotionally invested in Obama, can't break the Hype & Changeless or Hype & Change for the Worse programming they were subjected to. They're emotionally invested and won't easily - or at all - admit they were wrong & conned by the CONmander-in-chief, so they still support Bushbama regardless.

Ask Questions, Demand Answers.

But when your questions are answered, quit continuing to ask the same questions again and again because you didn't like what the answers were.

A main facet of the trick that fake information disseminators count on is that you'll become emotionally invested in repeating what they've told you.

Then you're snagged:

- you won't want to admit being wrong;
- you won't want to admit being conned.

The majority who repeat fake information they were conned to believe, then fight to defend said fake information even after it's shown to be wrong. Emotionally invested brainwashing works.

Also when you've helped to spread fake information, if you have to retract or admit that it was false, your pride, reputation, and public perception of your intelligence take a significant hit.

That's why this channel is named [name withheld].

I hate misiniformation, disinformation, lies, half truths, fake facts, stupidity and definitely the "leaders" - or most visible - in "movements" who purposely mix bad info with good info.

That said, it is well established fact that conspiracies are real; many wealthy and poor people are in prison for participating in or plotting conspiracies of: Murder, Fraud, Robbery, etc.

Conspiracy Conviction US

https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=Conspir...

The basic definition of 'Conspiracy' is: two people - or more - committing a crime that they agreed upon in secret ahead of time.

Conspiracies have happened all throughout history and most have been exposed fully, they're no longer mysteries.

That doesn't mean that everything is a conspiracy or any crazy s*** that people says is a "conspiracy."

But people murder other people then lie and say they 'didn't do it'; and people try to cover up their crimes, so don't be stupid.

Nobody likes to admit they were tricked, especially when it isn't a joke. Nobody likes to admit they were wrong - pride is a strong emotion. Millions were emotionally conned by Obama, that is why it is so difficult for so many of them to break the emotional programming. Emotionally Invested Brainwashing Works.

Thank you for posting this. Though I am aware of all of this, I somehow missed this particular article, which means that many more have not seen it either. The article is well written, I can certainly share this at our next event :-)

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

Another very old article presented as current

If you post shit that is a year old...please indicate the date. Those of us trying to provide CURRENT accurate info to the sleeping masses lose credibility if we get snookered.

I noticed the date prior to reposting or forwarding to anyone but it still wasted my time.

I'm not being an ass. I've done the same thing before but I now pay much closer attention to dates.

Incredible article though. Just stunning.

Mea Culpa

Wow, well my apologies, I certainly only looked at the month and day, oops. Although I too somehow missed seeing the actual memo last year.

However, it should be noted this still remains the CURRENT operating procedure of the US government.

It was a good read.

If Glenn has info on US state sponsored terrorism, from the Edward trove, I sure hope that he releases at least some of it. Other than the already known US drone program that IS terrorism and also technically state sponsored.

Catching up on 2013 reading?

I thought it was recent too. It's from Feb 2013. Fantastic writing. So thankful for Greenwald's principled arguments here!

How Please Tell Me How

Please, I beg of thee minarchists, pray tell how THIS disgusting STATE can be reformed by pulling a lever in a voting booth?

Please tell me how such a murderous vile regime can retain a shred of legitimacy?

And, please tell me how you can possibly GIVE consent when the government flatly states it demands your obedience?

Since you question

Since you question minarchists, am I right to assume you are an anarchist?

If so, I am still trying to get an answer from one on the issue of a power vacuum and gangs. I know you do a show, although I have not yet heard it.

Hypothetically if we snapped our fingers and tomorrow all power structures were gone, how would the forming of gangs to steal from productive people be prevented? Would a gang need to be formed to counter those gangs, how would power not corrupt them, and would those gangs not become a defacto government themselves? How would the issue of power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely, be dealt with? With force?

Don't take this as an endorsement of centralized power, I seriously do not understand how anarchy does not grow into centralized power. Whenever I ask these questions, I am basically accused of being a statist, rather than anyone giving practical answers to the problems that exist with humans.

We already have the government gang doing this

The only difference is that you comply with the theft and don't fight back.

This could happen now, like flipping a light switch on.

I know you are asking Allison, but if I can offer you my thougts on your question with the following: There would have to be an accompanying psychological change, a leap in consciousness that understands the fair value exchange principles that forbids the initiation of force, threat of force or fraud.

The irrationality disease and those infected with it could no longer compete, and would have to grow or die off by one means or another, maybe at the hands of one who defends against irrational force.

The creation, production and fair exchange of values is the business of evolving consciousness, love and life.--Craig Johnson

"There would have to be an

"There would have to be an accompanying psychological change."

I think this comment illustrates the point that anarchy will not work. How can you get everyone to agree on something? Do you think you could get all democrats to join the republican party, or vice versa, through salesmanship? People operate in what they "perceive" to be their own best interests.

How do you get a poor person to not want food stamps and how do you get a rich person to not want tax breaks? Enforcing anarchy through force is not an option, because then you would no longer have anarchy, you would have a centralized authority.

Anyone else want to chime in on my original comment above this one? How do gangs not form in an anarchy?

You provided your own answer.

'People operate in what they "perceive" to be their own best interests.'

No need to get "everyone to agree", the psychological change is happening now.

Look at how they have to pay shills on the internet to try an keep the light from shinning through and they are failing, and not because of or "through salesmanship".

Honesty and integrity is in harmony with real prosperity and with our nature, look at how the internet has changed so much and so many since I first got online in 1996.

The fact that no external authority exist and that we have to integrate the facts of reality as accurately and honestly as possible will become more evident as survival pressure increases.

The solution has always been the same. The creation, production and fair exchange of values through fully integrated honesty and wide scope accountability.

The anti-civilization that we are in now will collapse, we have to survive it, outcompete it and obsolete it.

Freedom and honest value exchange nourishes prosperity. And that is in everyones best interest.

No need for gangs, that will be self-evident and so yesterday.

They have no legitimacy.

They do not operate under authority of law.

They do not have my consent or obedience.
