SITE: Look who "found" those ISIS beheading videos

Since mid-August 2014 major news organizations have conveyed videos allegedly found online by the SITE Intelligence Group. Unsurprisingly the same media have failed to closely interrogate what the private company actually is and whether the material it promotes should be accepted as genuine.

The Search for International Terrorist Entities Intelligence Group was co-founded by Rita Katz in 2001. Katz is an Iraqi-born Jew. Her father, an Israeli spy, was executed by Iraqis as a result of his intelligence activities.

ISIS™ Drives Texas-made Toyota Trucks Apparently Modified for U.S. Special Forces

Full story: http://willyloman.wordpress.com/2014/09/10/isis-drives-texas...

The now iconic white Toyota trucks we see ISIS™ driving around look scarily familiar to ones purchased here in the states and outfitted by special forces which puts to rest the notion that ISIS™ simply ran up to a dealership in Iraq and made off with 30 or so vehicles. They aren’t even SOLD in Iraq and certainly not with these modifications. At least not as an entire fleet.

This Appalling Practice Is Only Used in Two Nations—And the US Is One of Them

This Appalling Practice Is Only Used in Two Nations—And the US Is One of Them

"The UN has condemned one country for “using extortion, threats of violence” to collect taxes. It then turns a blind eye to another country doing exactly the same thing… but much worse."

Justin Amash states his position on Syria

From Amash's Facebook Page:

What have we learned from the last decade of war?

Those years should have taught us that when going to war, our government must:

(1) be careful when defining a military mission,

(2) speak forthrightly with the American people about the sacrifices they will be called to make,

(3) plan more than one satisfactory end to the conflict, and

(4) be humble about what we think we know.

These lessons should be at the front of our minds when Congress votes today on whether to arm groups in Syria.

Ron Paul: "We don’t need the likes of Senator Cruz to protect us by supporting wars that are..."

Cruz said, “We should not permit them to return to America.” Those joining a violent group would automatically lose all of their rights as Americans citizens and are to be labeled traitors. Maybe so, or maybe not, but the constitution speaks to the serious nature of convicting an American citizen of treason.

An Unbearable and Choking Hell: The Loss of Our Freedoms in the Wake of 9/11

By John W. Whitehead | September 15, 2014
The Rutherford Institute

“I tell you, freedom and human rights in America are doomed. The U.S. government will lead the American people in — and the West in general — into an unbearable hell and a choking life.”—Osama bin Laden (October 2001), as reported by CNN

What a strange and harrowing road we’ve walked since September 11, 2001, littered with the debris of our once-vaunted liberties. We have gone from a nation that took great pride in being a model of a representative democracy to being a model of how to persuade a freedom-loving people to march in lockstep with a police state.

What began with the passage of the USA Patriot Act in October 2001 has snowballed into the eradication of every vital safeguard against government overreach, corruption and abuse. Since then, we have been terrorized, traumatized, and tricked into a semi-permanent state of compliance. The bogeyman’s names and faces change over time—Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein and now ISIS—but the end result remains the same: our unquestioning acquiescence to anything the government wants to do in exchange for the phantom promise of safety and security.

Ironically, just a short week after the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, we find ourselves commemorating the 227th anniversary of the ratification of our Constitution. Yet while there is much to mourn about the loss of our freedoms in the years since 9/11, there has been little to celebrate.

Ron Paul Says Rand Speaks for Himself on Attacking ISIS

Ron Paul and Rand Paul agree on a lot, but they don’t agree on what the U.S. should do about the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria.

Ron Paul, the former Republican congressman from Texas, tells U.S. News he would “definitely not” vote to give President Barack Obama authority to wage war against the jihadi militants.

Fighting the group, he says, "will just hurt us and it will end when we go bankrupt.”

Rand Paul, the Kentucky senator and possible 2016 Republican presidential candidate, held a non-interventionist stance for much of the Syrian Civil War, but told Fox News Monday he would vote to bless Obama's use of force after the group beheaded two American journalists.

I have highlighted the inhumanity of the Saudi regime frequently recently in order to demonstrate the incredible hypocrisy of U.S. foreign policy.

The Dark Road: The Worst Tax Law You've Never Heard About

It broke Ruth Freeborn’s heart to give up her U.S. citizenship that fateful day last year. Unfortunately for the Oklahoma native, though, it was either that, or her family. Ruth’s Canadian husband of 33 years, who earns all of the middle-class family’s income, “simply could not go along with this situation,” she explained. “To find myself suddenly not able to live, bank, save or to keep peace in my marriage while being American at the same time was shocking at first and deeply disturbing to me.”

If Assad dares to defend his country from illegal American airstrikes...America will bomb him for that too!

This kind of rationale reminds me of all the people here in Amerika being arrested for resisting arrest. Assad must sit by and allow the US Air Force (and drones) to bomb his nation...or else Amerika will double down and bring MORE death and destruction to Syria. Kind of like a parent telling some child to "stop that crying or I will really give you something to cry about". Unflippingbelievable!
