Video Report: Russian Military Enters Ukraine - Special Report

By Susan Duclos

Via The Mass Tea Party YouTube channel, a special report on the military response by Russia to the ousting of the Ukraine president and Barack Obama's threat about the "costs" to any military actions, after reports and videos were shown of Russian troops moving enmasse.

It is an in depth 11 minute plus report and well worth watching to see what is happening at the moment as tensions between the US and Russia hit new levels.

Celente: Global Wake Up Call

By Susan Duclos - Originally posted at Before It's News

ABC Australia's Ian Henschke is joined by Gerald Celente to discuss world events. They start with the massively high unemployment as Celente asserts that college degrees these days are degrees in "worthlessness."

The headlined topic though is the situation in Ukraine and how in the February 5, edition of the Winter Trends Journal, Celente predicted, and has been proven correct, how the revolution in the Ukraine would intensify to the point where it is now.

Celente makes the point that the whole fiasco in the Ukraine is the US and EU's attempt to weaken Russia. He expands on the point and how this is a fact not conspiracy theory, and provides the evidence backing his belief, so please listen to the entire segment, which starts at the 4:45 mark for those that do not want to hear the unemployment portion.

WW3 On Our Doorstep? Russia Spy Ship In Cuba As Tensions Rise Between US And Russia (Video)

By Susan Duclos

The Obama administration is playing a very dangerous game with Russia, destabilizing the Ukraine, helping oust a Moscow-backed president from power to insert a pro-western puppet, then threatening Russia's President Vladimir Putin when it becomes apparent that he may involve the Russian military.

The Obama administration warned Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday not to react too aggressively to the fast-moving developments in Ukraine, where pro-Western demonstrators forced the nation’s Moscow-backed president from power over the weekend. 
National Security Adviser Susan E. Rice said the situation unfolding in Kiev “reflects the will of the Ukrainian people and the interests of the United States and Europe,” and that Russia would be making a “grave mistake” if it sends in military forces to try to reverse the developments — or to seize control of pro-Moscow eastern Ukraine.

In response, a Russian spy ship, with electronic eavesdropping equipment and weaponry, including AK-630 rapid-fire cannons and surface-to-air missiles, parks itself within firing distance to the US, in Havana Cuba.

We already know from previous reports that Russian troops have trained on US soil for the first time, in 2012. Arrangements have been made to have Russians "help" in emergency situations on US soil, meaning they have to be close enough to be part of the first response teams and that is public knowledge.

Consider how open our borders are and we truly have no idea how many private, covert operatives are in the US just waiting for orders should a war start between the US and Russia.

We also do not know what their battle plans are and how they have changed after our interference and likely our help in destabilizing the Ukraine, as we did in Syria and Egypt.

Will the Ukraine be the match that lights the powder keg just waiting to blow?

Nigeria: Twenty nine students murdered..does anybody notice?

That 'religion of peace' strikes again.

From CBS:
February 25, 2014

Boko Haram Islamic militants storm Nigeria boarding school, kill 29 children

DAMATURU, Nigeria -- Gunmen from Islamist group Boko Haram stormed a boarding school in northeast Nigeria overnight and killed 29 pupils, many of whom died in flames as the school was burned to the ground, police and the military said on Tuesday.

Some of the students bodies were burned to ashes,รข€ Police Commissioner Sanusi Rufai said of the attack on the Federal Government college of Buni Yadi, a secondary school in Yobe state, near the state's capital city of Damaturu.

Female students were spared in the attack, said spokesman Abdullahi Bego. The attackers went to the female dormitories and told the young women to go home, get married and abandon the Western education they said is anathema to Islam, he said. He was relating to The Associated Press what survivors and community leaders told Gov. Ibrahim Gaidam when he visited the now-deserted and destroyed Federal Government College at Buni Yadi, a secondary school 45 miles south of the state capital, Damaturu..

Soldiers guarding a checkpoint near the government school were mysteriously withdrawn hours before the attack, said Abdullahi Bego, the spokesman for the governor of Yobe state....

Go here for more gruesome details.

Allen West says this:

 Some may read this story and ask who cares?

 I’m not advocating the United States police the world but if we refuse to comprehend the global threat of Islamic totalitarianism, we are only fooling ourselves. 

This is not about occupation warfare but strike operations against these non-state, non-uniform belligerents, and we must interdict their flow of financial and materiel support. Along with that we must stop the PC mantra of not attacking their ideology, stop calling them extremists and refer to them as who they are, jihadists, Islamic terrorists. 

I am waiting to hear condemnation from President Obama. Not holding my breath.

No, me neither.  Go read Allen West here.

 From Jihad Watch:

Nigerian students trying to escape college attack were “slaughtered like sheep” by Islamic jihadists who slit their throats
 February 25, 2014

Remember: when you hear Leftists and Islamic supremacists going on about “Islamophobia,” demonizing those who call attention to atrocities like this, this is what they are enabling: students burned alive, and having their throats slit when they tried to escape. This is, apparently, what the “Islamophobia” industry — the real one that pushes the concept, not the counter-jihad one that Hamas-linked CAIR imagines to exist — wants to see: heaps of dead Infidel bodies....


Adamu Garba said he and other teachers who ran away through the bush estimate 40 students died in the assault that began around 2 a.m. Tuesday at the Federal Government College at Buni Yadi.

It is a co-ed school about 70 kilometres south of Damaturu, the capital of Yobe state, and difficult to communicate with because extremists last year destroyed the cellphone tower there.

Soldiers still are gathering corpses so he could not give an exact number of dead, said military spokesman Capt. Eli Lazarus....

Pollster Warns 'It's Coming' To America - RE: Kiev-Style Revolt

By Susan Duclos

In a panel discussion on Fox News, shown in the video below, pollster and former presidential advisor Pat Caddell warns that a Kiev-style revolt is "coming to America." 

Transcript quotes from InfoWars:

• What we’re seeing in the world… in Kiev… is American values at work. These people and the rest of the world are saying ‘we’re not putting up with this and we’ll put our lives on it.

• “In this country a populace equally dissatisfied with its political class and its leadership. We don’t have the same overt oppression, but we have a very soft oppression of complacency and corruption.

• And the American people… what you’re seeing there… they need their own outlet for that… it is a warning… because it’s coming.

Caddell is not the only one talking about Americans revolting, a possible second American revolution or civil war, and if the government is aware of the level of dissatisfaction by Americans over how the US is being run, and they have to be aware of it, then it would explain the preparatons we have been seeing the government make with weapons, ammunition, the military purge, etc....

It's Coming.

13,000 MRAPs Patrolling US City Streets

By Susan Duclos originally posted at Before It's News

In the video linked below from Bloomberg News, we see that the Army is giving away 13,000 MRAPs (Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected) trucks and the lion's share are going to U.S. law enforcement agencies. These trucks are estimated to cost $500,000 each and weigh 20 tons. The trucks were built to "save U.S. soldiers from roadside bombs in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars," according to the video details.

Ask yourself the following question..... why on Earth would US local law enforcement agencies need trucks built for war?

Lee Rigby killers get life

From the Beeb:
26 February 2014

Lee Rigby murder: Adebolajo and Adebowale jailed

 Michael Adebolajo has been given a whole-life term and Michael Adebowale has been jailed for a minimum of 45 years for murdering Fusilier Lee Rigby.

 Adebolajo, 29, and Adebowale, 22, drove into Fusilier Rigby with a car before hacking him to death in Woolwich, south-east London, in May last year.

The judge, Mr Justice Sweeney, said Adebolajo's case was one of those "rare cases" warranting a whole-life term.

The pair were absent during sentencing after a scuffle in the dock.

As Mr Justice Sweeney began to sentence the men they started shouting and scuffling with court security guards. They had to be forced to the ground and were removed from court.

Sentencing the killers in their absence, the judge said they had been convicted on "overwhelming" evidence of the "barbaric" murder of Fusilier Rigby...
Much more here.

The family is quoted as saying that no other sentence would have been acceptable, and I have to agree....

Rest in Peace, Fusilier Rigby.  Rest In Peace....

Americans Rising Up Against Gov’t.. And Winning!

By Susan Duclos - Originally posted at Before It's News

Glenn Harlan Reynolds provides three very important examples of how Americans have already started rising up against a tyrannical government, without violence or a shot fired, and have seen some big wins as we stand together and speak in one voice.

One was the DHS nationwide license plate database which has been canceled with the excuse that it was all a "mistake."

The second example was the FCC plans to intimidate newsrooms and print news outlets by placing government "monitors," to question independent editorial decisions. Again the plan was scrapped after public outrage was expressed.

The third example is the passive resistance shown in Connecticut where the majority of gun owners that were told they must "register", did not and won't.

These may seem like small wins to some, but they are actually extremely important because the people have shown they can bypass the MSM, spread the word, get the message across and put a stop to the antics of administrations, local, state or federal, that would strip our rights guaranteed under the US constitution.

Every person that shared a story about one of these events, every comment they made on any forum which helped the word bypass the MSM, every conversation, every article written.... all helped.

Be careful and be prepared though because when tyranny is thwarted, those in charge become dangerous.

Gerald Celente On Bankster Suicides In Newly Released Video Report On ‘The Conspiracy Show’

Top Level American Bankster Dies - #9? (Video)

By Susan Duclos

Not sure how many lower level banksters have died, whether by "suicide" or mysterious death, but according to reports showing the names of the top level banksters that have died in rapid succession, we were at eight and I just ran across an article about a "prominent" American banker that has expired.

Before getting to that article, let me remind readers that "V" The Guerrilla Economist issued an alert, shown over at Steve Quayle's website which explicity warned "Word on the "street" watch for a top level American bankster to expire," on February 5, 2014, when the number of top level bankers that had  supposedly committed "suicide"  was only four that were known about.

We now have nine.

A successful Lincoln businessman and member of a prominent local family died last week. Former National Bank of Commerce CEO James Stuart Jr. was found dead in Scottsdale, Ariz., the morning of Feb. 19.

My Stuart's resume was long and showed how prominent a name in the banking industry he was:

In 1969, Stuart joined Citibank in New York City and served as a loan officer until 1973, when he joined First Commerce Bancshares (then NBC Co.) as executive vice president. He was named president in 1976, chairman and CEO in 1978, and also became chairman and CEO of National Bank of Commerce in 1985. Stuart spent his life building the organization into an important business voice in Lincoln, friend and colleague Brad Korell said.
“He was a very successful banker,” said Korell, who worked with Stuart for more than 30 years. “I always felt that he was a visionary. He really did build one of the most successful and admired banking organizations in the Midwest.”
Stuart spent much of his career with First Commerce Bancshares, a $3 billion multi-bank holding company headquartered in Lincoln. First Commerce was sold to Wells Fargo in 2000.

Is this the top level American banker that "V" warned us of? Are there more coming? Exactly how huge is this thing and how many have we not heard about?

The other eight:

1. William Broeksmit

2. Karl Slym,

3. Gabriel Magee

4. Mike Dueker

5. Richard Talley

6. Tim Dickenson

7. Ryan Henry Crane

8. Li Junjie

[Update] For those that have been asking:

He was 70… here is the obit –

At 70, with his business history, I would think he had contacts that most would dream of having. This could be coincidence, could have been a natural death…. or could have been part of this whole banker thing.

Until we know for sure, every single banker death is suspect.

Termination Squads Targeting Veterans Before Martial Law?

By Susan Duclos

A day after a piece I did about Obama preparing for civil war, planning a false flag event, a  shooting, in order to move bills that are sitting in the Senate to strip veterans of their weapons, because they would be our first line of defense against martial law and a tyrannical government, two alerts hit the Steve Quayle alert pages about drones and blue ford trucks conducting surveillance on vets and their families in rural areas.

Then the following day, February 24, 2014, another alert, confirming the first two, which makes all this far more than just coincidence.

In rural areas people know the vehicles that should be in the area and for three separate areas, three different families, all seeing these "blue ford" trucks with people blatantly watching these people, means things are coming to a head sooner rather than later.

More about these instances in my video below and the links to each alert will be beneath that.

One point should be considered here: Veteran suicides over the last few years has hit records and are being headlined as "alarmingly high." 

How are we sure they are all suicides and some of them not the government picking them off because they pose a danger to plans for martial law?

Op/Ed on WI Honor Guard: Words (and pictures) Matter

*cross-posted from Assoluta Tranquillita*

 Words have power: Use them wisely.

Last week social media was abuzz with news, and commentary,  of a series of photos taken by a  group of National Guards. The msm soon jumped in, and copies of those photos, and the accompanying cut-lines, became the topic du jour.

I first became aware of the gathering storm via a social media group of Gold Star Families, some of whom I have known and loved for many years.  Witnessing their pain and anguish in reaction, I followed the trail back to the origin of the offending - and offensive - pictures.   As often in the past, when any of our Troops have been cast in a bad light in the msm, I had no intention of writing about this specific incident. I usually choose not to join any public lynch mobs. However, as I watched and heard the Gold Stars,  I knew I had to share their perspective on the disrespect laid bare for all to see..  They gave me permission to share their thoughts, and that was this column.  

Within that column, I chose not to reprint the offensive photos, (unlike most msm reporting)  and instead chose to share pictures of the Fallen Heroes represented by the Gold Star Families' words.  As always, I was determined to give voice to those we rarely hear from, at least in print, in public.

The following day, the Adjutant General of the Wisconsin National Guard issued a public statement, with assurances that an investigation would be underway, and appropriate consequences  would occur. Despite my initial scepticism of any need for an investigation - to me, the photos  were all I needed for proof - since then,  I understand that some of the participants of those ill-chosen words and deeds has been suspended as the investigation proceeds.

All good, right? and we can be confident that these latest delinquents will feel the wrath of their Military command.   Yes, I really DO have confidence in our Military leadership (well, for the most part,) and the mainstream media seems to have moved on to the next headlines.

However, since I published the original column, my thoughts have been not only with our Gold Stars, but also with the hundreds of thousands of men and women of our Military, both Active Duty and Veterans. 

In short?  I feel as if I failed all our Military (past and present) and I am sorry.   As the furore raged this last week,  many Veterans (from all our recent Wars) commented both publicly and privately.  Their outrage and their condemnation was unanimous.

I feel that by my choice not to acknowledge the effect of these photos on all of our Military, I could be perceived as one of those who only ever writes about our Troops and Veterans when they have something negative happen.

Yes, I am well aware that it was not my photos/comments that caused the storm, and yes, I know that my complete body of work over the years clearly demonstrates my unwavering support for our Troops.  However,  by my own ill-chosen words in that one column,  I added to the arsenal of those who always salivate over anything they can find to smear all our Troops in a bad light.  As many in the new and old media know,  some stories drive up readership, and affect the bottom line.  On the former, I can report that this is true right here on this site.  The day my headline was "WI NG..." I had more daily readers than I have had on any other single day for the past year. 

I can safely deduce that many who found my column were not regular readers, but were driven here on a quest to feed their need for negative news about our Military..  By my perhaps poorly chosen words, I feel that I gave those fly-bys more ammunition, to reinforce their own anti-Military biases. I regret that.

By my own editorial comments, (and omissions) I know I did a disservice to our men and women, who never makes the headlines, as they Serve with integrity.   Through my own lapse in judgement, I fell into the 'he we do not name' school of hack journalism. I have edited the original now (the joy of being an independent!) and removed what I consider inappropriate and unacceptable.

Over the years of online writing,  I have learned a few lessons, which I suspect those young National Guards are discovering the hard way: the internet is forever (and never private); once you have put something out there, you lose all control over it, and whilst you the originator know what you meant by any specific posting - your intent -  you have no control over any future readers/viewer's interpretation. Once a word or image is on the internet, its reach becomes global, often to places unimagined by the poster. Those who insist on posting pictures of their youthful indiscretions on the internet, discover that they will come back to haunt them (Mouth In Chief, anyone?)  I guess these young miscreants never read This Ain't Hell who, when these incidents occur,  frequently advise: don’t act a fool, and certainly, don’t take pictures of it and post it to the internet, FFS

Our Military has many enemies,  both foreign AND domestic. Those enemies drool at any opportunity to portray our Serving men and women in a negative light, all the while totally ignoring the good they do day in, day out, for years.   No matter that this current group of jack asses represent but a tiny 'smidgen' of the majority wearing the uniform; our Military's enemies never miss a chance to use any propaganda tool to cover all our Troops with the cloak of the usual inaccurate vitriol that they so delight in to paint anybody in a Military uniform. Oh and yes, murderers in international Terrorist networks do use the internet, and use any negative press about our Military as weapons against us.  It seems that every time a small handful of our Troops (or Veterans) is caught on camera during a momentary lapse of judgement, anti-Military politicians, and the msm, also rush to heap a full measure of scorn on the entire Military community.   (John Murther ring a bell?)

This latest example of  'letting loose' by a handful of our Troops disrespected all our Fallen Heroes and was in direct contradiction of the expectations of the training and mindset they are expected to uphold.  Every Military member I know (Veteran and Active Duty,)  strongly condemns as 'indefensible' the behaviour of the latest delinquent Soldiers. As we all should.

I don't know these particular Soldiers,  so I cannot say what was in their minds when they a) took the pictures, or b) when they posted them...I have no clue of any of their backgrounds.  However,  I do know this:  these photos and their actions, are now the public - permanent - record of their infamy.   I also know that when any recruit swears an oath upon enlistment  into our Military, they then become the representative of the whole profession.  It is no longer about one individual, but of the common goal to serve a larger ideal.

Our Fallen Heroes, their families, all our Troops,  have earned our respect.  I apologise if any of MY previous words fed into the festering pus that is the anti-Military crowd. Our Troops deserve better from me.

Words have power - I will use them more wisely in the future...

(H/T Deb)

[Bratnote This one is for all who have paid the ultimate Sacrifice - and those Troops and Veterans who continue their honourable Service - protecting my rights to free speech and my rights to prove what an ass I also can be! : Sgt Major MacKinder, SSG Cowdrey, SSG Arnette, SGT Stokely, SSG May, MAJ Galloway, and so many more that I am privileged to know and love..  Thank you.]

Dead Banksters 'Harbinger To The Economic Collapse' - "V" The Guerrilla Economist (Video)

By Susan Duclos

Coast to Coast AM has a variety of issues discussed from their February 20, 2014 show and after the 10 minute mark, "V" The Guerrilla Economist comes on and is well worth listening to as he explains the ins and outs of what we have been seeing with global economics, the trifecta of issues he believes is behind the series of bankers deaths where the list continues to grow.

The key headlined quote from "V" comes at around the 30:35 minute mark where he states the death of these banksters are a "harbinger to the economic collapse" coming our way.

He connects the dots going back to 2012, so listen carefully because as he says, their deaths are telling the tale they can no longer tell.

Iran: Poet, Activist Hanged

From The Clarion Project:

Iran Hangs Well-Loved Human Rights Activist, Poet

Israel: MUST READ Open Letter to John Kerry

John Kerry MAY be the current US Secretary of State, but just about daily, he proves what a clueless moron he is. As we have seen, his boss - the Mouth In Chief  - also demonstrates on a daily basis just how dangerous, to all of us, this wilful ignorance about world affairs really is.

Now from Israel comes an open letter to John Kerry; you know, giving him FACTS from the Israeli point of view.

From The Times of Israel:

Greater Men have Tried

February 2, 2014

Paula R. Stern

Dear Secretary of State John Kerry: 

Because of my respect for the United States, I will attempt to afford you the honor you think you so richly deserve. It’s hard to speak to you with anything but anger, hard to feel the need, again, to start from the beginning because you clearly choose to ignore history in your quest for glory. It is a quest destined to fail but its outcome, even, or more accurately especially, in failure, will hurt Israel.

Greater men than you have tried to make, to force, peace on the Middle East. I promise you, you will fail too. You will fail because you are not addressing the root cause of the problem. You, like so many before you, take the easy way out. Blame Israel. It is so easy to do, and so stupid.

I could speak to you of history – a history longer and greater than you can imagine. I could speak to you of injustices – yes, our land is filled with the graves of those murdered for the unjust reason that they lived here, or traveled abroad, or ate in the wrong restaurant, or took the wrong bus.

I could speak to you of justice – of a population exchange similar to those that have taken place throughout history as nations settle between war and peace. They left their lands to go there, most voluntarily so that their invading brothers would have a clear path as they pushed the Jews into the sea. And our people, who left their homes and possessions in Arab lands, most forced, not voluntarily, and came here...

I prefaced this post by calling it a MUST READ.  Sadly, John Kerry, and others in this administration who should read this and learn, will not.  You can find the rest of this letter here.

12 Banker 'Suicides' Linked To JP Morgan Investigation For Forex Manipulation

By Susan Duclos

AMTV's Christopher Greene has connected 12 banker "suicides" to the Forex division of not just JP Morgan banks but other banking institutions. The higher death count ranges from 8 to 12 deaths and Greene explains the links and leaves it to the listener to decide on a few of them but he does conclusively connect five of them.

This is a must-see video.

Remember the connection was first made by "V" The Guerrilla Economist, as well as the initial warning when these men mysteriously "suicided," that there would be more... then the alert that there were 43 on the "hit list."

It is good to see others delving into this and making even more connections.

AMTV's previous bankster video below:

West Coast Residents: Dead Men Walking From Fukushima Radiation (Video)

By Susan Duclos

"When the West Coast finally understands the danger they are in, there will be a 'panic exodus' that's unimaginable! "- Via Steve Quayle

As I say in the video, by then it will be too late, it probably already is.

The media almost complacently reports yet another 100 tons of radioactive water has leaked from a holding tank at Fukushima, this is in addition to the hundreds of tons pouring into the Pacific ocean daily.

In the first video below I attempt to show the undeniable and obvious evidence that residents along the West Coast are nothing more than dead men walking at this point and the governments of those areas, along with the media are complicit in their deaths by refusing to inform the public of the dangers, the radiation levels and the truth of what is happening.

Below are the headlined stories from ENENews recently that I use in the video:

Study: Fukushima airborne plumes “caused significant deposition of radioactivity over North America” — Especially for West Coast and eastern U.S. — Around 13% of all radioactive iodine released into atmosphere was deposited over USA and Canada

Study: Daily release from Fukushima of 100+ Quadrillion becquerels of cesium-137 early on in crisis “seems reasonable” — Chernobyl total release was ~70 Quadrillion Bq of cs-137

Gov’t map shows highest radiation levels were directly over Salt Lake City, Utah and surrounding area on March 20, 2011 — Most intense concentration of anywhere in world, including Fukushima (GRAPHIC)

TV: Bald eagles dying at rate “much higher than normal” and it’s not from West Nile virus as previously claimed — Now around 60 dead in Utah since December — “We feel helpless, we don’t have a lot of answers” (VIDEO)

The headlines alone tell the story, but read each, learn it, understand it because when the next little tidbit is quoted below from Global Research on January 27, 2014, it should be a hard smack in the face to understand the level of duplicity coming from our very own government.

What we don’t really know is how fast and how much is being transportedacross the Pacific. Yes, models tell us it will be safe, yes the levels we expect off the US West Coast and Canada we expect to be low, but we needmeasurements — especially now, as the plume begins to arrive along the West Coast and will actually increase in concentration over the next 1 to 2 years.Despite public concern about the levels, no public agency in the US is monitoring the activities in the Pacific. 
Without careful, extensive, consistent monitoring, we’ll have no way of knowing how much radiation from Fukushima is reaching our shores, and how it could affect life in the ocean.

Are you freaking kidding me?

Either they are lying and are monitoring but do not wish to officially announce the results because they are so bad people will panic or the US government and those along the West Coast are simply the most incompetent ever seen throughout history.

Video below says in the details that the nuclear radiation detector you will see in the short 16 second video was "filmed at 36k feet on route from Taipei to Seattle, Feb. 12th, 2014."

In the video below we see quite a few DEAD MEN WALKING

GITMO: USS Cole Tribunal on hold - again

 Remember the USS Cole bombing in October 2000?  

On Thursday, October 12, 2000, while refueling at a port in Aden, Yemen, the U.S. Navy destroyer Cole was attacked by a two suicide bombers navigating a small motorboat full of explosives. The explosion occurred at 11:18 a.m. Bahrain time, killing 17 crew members and wounding 39 others....
The ship, which was carrying a crew of 293, was en route to the Persian Gulf to help enforce an oil embargo against Iraq.  (source)

Those charged with the attack have been held in GITMO, and are currently facing hearings in a Military Tribunal: 

Abd al-Rahim Hussein Muhammed Abdu Al-Nashiri (Saudi Arabian)
Al-Nashiri is charged with perfidy, murder in violation of the law of war, attempted murder in violation of the law of war, terrorism, conspiracy, intentionally causing serious bodily injury, attacking civilians, attacking civilian objects, and hazarding a vessel. The charges arise out of an attempted attack on the USS THE SULLIVANS in January 2000, an attack on the USS COLE in October 2000, and an attack on the MV Limburg in October 2002.

A charge is merely an accusation; an accused is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

Thirteen years after the USS Cole attack, the families of those murdered still wait for justice.

This last Monday, the current round of Tribunal Hearings in this case - which was scheduled to last eight days - was abruptly halted. From

USS Cole Bombing Hearing Halted at Guantanamo

Miami Herald | Feb 18, 2014

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVY BASE, Cuba -- An Army judge abruptly recessed the first military commission session of the year Monday because the alleged architect of al-Qaida's 2000 USS Cole bombing may want to fire his lawyer. '

One-time waterboarded Saudi prisoner Abd al Rahim al Nashiri, 49, is scheduled to face trial in September. The judge, Army Col. James L. Pohl, had scheduled eight days of hearings to address defense and prosecution representation questions, efforts by Nashiri's lawyers to narrow the case -- as well as postponing the trial until at least February 2015.

But Nashiri's death-penalty defender, Rick Kammen, a civilian, told the judge moments into the hearing that the prisoner had lost confidence in him, and wanted to fire him. He asked for two days to work with the accused on preserving the relationship. Pohl agreed. He recessed until Wednesday and said, if the hearings go forward, he'll hold Saturday and Sunday sessions to make up time.

Nashiri, who could be executed if convicted as the mastermind of the suicide bombing of the $1 billion warship off Yemen in October 2000, sat silently in the courtroom for the 10-minute hearing. Seventeen sailors were killed in the attack, and the fathers of three said later that the recess was proof that the United States was bending over backwards to give the accused terrorist a fair trial.

"I'll be here no matter what. We owe this to our son to make sure this happens," said John Clodfelter, 65, whose sailor son Kenneth, 21, was killed in the blast. He's made the pilgrimage to this remote base in southeast Cuba for each hearing, and declared himself "past disappointed a long time ago."

Jesse Nieto, 70, whose son Marc, 24, was also killed, echoed long-held sentiment that the accused was engaged in stalling tactics. "Anything he can do to gum up the work's he's going to do it," he said.

 No report out of GITMO yet as to the outcome today, but you can read the rest of the above account here.

As with the ongoing Military Tribunal relating to the 9/11 terrorist attack, the wheels of justice are grinding exceedingly slowly.  For some sense of why, you might want to check out the 'unofficial/unauthorised transcript' of the USS Cole proceedings posted on the Military Commission's own website.   

 Mr Nieto, quoted above in the story is not alone in his perception that the accused "was engaged in stalling tactics. "Anything he can do to gum up the work's he's going to do it," ...

I would be hard-pressed to argue their observations. However, even as we all watch the ongoing tactics of the accused, I continue to hold to the belief that for the USS Cole and 9/11 survivors, there WILL be ultimate justice.

Video: The absurdity of Amnesty

As Obama continues to threaten us all with his "I have a pen and a phone,' comes a video from Top Right News .

Just over three minutes long, it is a very simple demonstration of the implications of MIC's determination to give amnesty to the millions of illegal aliens living in plain sight in the US.

Wisconsin National Guard: Adjutant General responds

Yesterday I shared some of the Gold Star Families' reactions to a few of the WI NG actions.

Today, Wisconsin Adjutant Major General Donald P. Dunbar issues a statement. 
A statement from the Wisconsin Adjutant General to the entire military family:
 February 19 2014

The recently revealed inappropriate photos and commentary posted to a social media site by a Soldier under my command are unacceptable. I am taking this matter very seriously. Upon learning of this incident, I ordered an investigation and we will wait until that is concluded to evaluate appropriate action.

Military funeral honors are a sacred trust, and that is why this issue has generated such a public outcry. The general public is understandably upset, and I understand the anger and response that it has caused. For those of us who wear or have worn the cloth of our nation’s uniform, this story cuts like a knife. I fully understand why so many veterans have expressed outrage. Lastly, I am acutely aware of the pain that this story must have caused for our Gold Star family members.

I deeply regret the pain this has caused, and personally apologize to the entire military family.

Donald P. Dunbar Maj Gen, Wisconsin National Guard
The Adjutant General


I am assured by somebody who knows Major General Dunbar that he is sincere, and will pursue this matter.  

This is not going away.  Stay tuned.

Obama Takes Control Of 'Free' Media!!! (Video)

By Susan Duclos

Americans are poised to lose even the pretense of a free media as the Obama administration proposes placing "government monitors" in newsrooms across the country" to grill reporters, editors and station owners about how they decide which stories to run."

According to Federal Communications Commissioner Ajit Pai, "The purpose of the CIN, according to the FCC, is to ferret out information from television and radio broadcasters about "the process by which stories are selected" and how often stations cover "critical information needs," along with "perceived station bias" and "perceived responsiveness to underserved populations."

There is so much wrong with that one paragraph I don't even know where to start.... who determines what information is "critical" for the purpose of the Obama administration's proposal? Who determines bias? Isn't that percieved by what side of the political aisle you are on? Also, how dare them attempt to decide who is deserving and who is not?

Via Mr. Pai's WSJ op-ed:

How does the FCC plan to dig up all that information? First, the agency selected eight categories of "critical information" such as the "environment" and "economic opportunities," that it believes local newscasters should cover. It plans to ask station managers, news directors, journalists, television anchors and on-air reporters to tell the government about their "news philosophy" and how the station ensures that the community gets critical information. 
The FCC also wants to wade into office politics. One question for reporters is: "Have you ever suggested coverage of what you consider a story with critical information for your customers that was rejected by management?" Follow-up questions ask for specifics about how editorial discretion is exercised, as well as the reasoning behind the decisions. 
Participation in the Critical Information Needs study is voluntary—in theory. Unlike the opinion surveys that Americans see on a daily basis and either answer or not, as they wish, the FCC's queries may be hard for the broadcasters to ignore. They would be out of business without an FCC license, which must be renewed every eight years.

There is much more in the op-ed, go read it.

For those that think this is just a proposal, the first feild test starts this spring in Columbia, SC.

In the video below I go over this in more depth and Obama's prior attempts at controlling the media in the video below.

Alternative Media is the wave of the future folks, putting everything out there, trusting readers to decide for themselves what to pay heed to, research more, or even discard rather than the government controlling what is brought to their attention.

The Banksters Are In Serious Trouble - Steve Quayle & "V" The Guerrilla Economist

By Susan Duclos

Hagmann and Hagmann is joined by "V" The Guerrilla Economist and Steve Quayle to discuss the recent slew of banker deaths, to which "V" predicted would happen, then sounded the alarm that more were coming... and they did right up until this morning, February 18, 2014 when reports broke the news of another dead banker.

"V" alerts coming to us via Steve Quayle's alerts, have been completely accurate, so it is chilling to hear him say that as more bankers' deaths pile up, we are seeing a "major sign that we are close to the end."

Quayle finds it interesting that the public is "watching the total destruction of the global economy." 

Above are just small quotes from their opening statements, you should watch the full clip below so you know what is coming, what to expect, so you can prepare accordingly.

The problem is that many still do not understand they are watching it all unfold right before their eyes.

The MSM has dropped the ball on this or are complicit in the cover-up, but either way, there are going to be some very unprepared, surprised people when everything collapses.

Videographer Last Chance Truth titled the video below "The Bankers Are In Serious Trouble."

China Drops Bombshell On US - Bankers Deaths, Bank Runs, Financial Bigwigs Running Scared - It Is All Connected!

By Susan Duclos

Fabian4Liberty breaks the news that China has started dumping the US dollar and says if you look around and all the heavy hitters in the financial world they are all saying "the time has come," for the dollar to cease to be the world's sole currency.

The Chinese has dumped almost  $50 billion of US treasuries, the Japanese have dumped about $4 billion. What Fabian points out is that China is sitting on a record amount of surplus but are not buying US debt with it as they have always have.

The dollar is being phased out.

Add to that the slew of bankers' deaths, the latest reported just this Tuesday morning, the high level financial workers who have told Fabian they were leaving the country because it is better for their families and better for "their personal safety," the bank runs in multiple countries and riots in others, and we see it is all coming to a head.

As Fabian highlights, the average American is so dumbed down, they are clueless about the reality of what this complete collapse of the dollar will mean for them.

Wisconsin National Guard: Where is YOUR Honor? Gold Star Families need to know

Late yesterday, a series of pictures hit social media, of a group of  Military 'trainees' displaying for all the world to see,  their utter contempt for the Fallen Heroes of America.  These Soldiers were apparently in training to be part of the Honor Guard:  the group charged with escorting our Fallen Heroes on their final journeys home as they are laid to rest, after giving their full measure of Sacrifice in Service to our country.

I watched for many hours as the storm of condemnation swiftly followed the emergence of the irrefutable evidence of the DIShonoring of our Fallen, and their families.  I found most of it on the Wisconsin National Guard FaceBook page.

When it became obvious to the WI NG that this issue was not going to go away, they issued a short statement:

'May have'????????  Hell no!  No 'may have' about it,  despite one of the NCO's trying to excuse  the INexcusable. For the Gold Star Families (and other Military members and their families - and those of us who love them) the pain ran deep as the condemnation continued unabated.

I refuse to share the disgusting, offensive pictures here, but I have been given permission to share some of the Gold Star Families' responses.

THEY are not buying any milque toast excuses  for what is obvious disrespect, dishonor in that most solemn and sacred duty of laying our Fallen to rest.  The Gold Star Families - and any Military I know  - are not accepting one of the NCO's feeble attempt to explain away the deeply wounding, and irreparable  actions laid bare right across the internet.  This is not acceptable to  any of the Gold Stars, and rightly so.:

You will know I had a few choice words for him.

Brian Jopek, Gold Star dad of Fallen Hero SGT Ryan Jopek (and himself a retired SSG) wrote the following in a Gold Star Family group:

Since you're bound to see this, please know the Wisconsin Army Guard is looking into this whole thing as apparently, one of those involved is a member. They were at class to learn how to be Honor Guard and supposedly, this photo was taken as a way to let off steam since its pretty stressful. However, a Wisconsin Army Guard Soldier also posted a pic of her in her blues and posting it was too cold for a funeral. Her NCO had said in response to all this that she had joined the Honor Guard because she understood the commitment and all that. Again, please know the Wisconsin Guard and I'm sure the different states the other troops belong to will be looking into the matter.

"With regard to the photo of the troops at PEC for Honor Guard and other photos of your troop. First off, as a retired NCO myself, I'm pretty disappointed in your defending what happened. Look, I get the whole 'needing to let off steam' thing. That detail is stressful. But you DON'T do it with a US flag draped casket. And then you DON'T go posting 'We put the FUN in funeral' in your blues and you DON'T bitch on social media about how it's too cold for a funeral. THAT, sarn't, is anything BUT selfless. I have the utmost respect for Honor Guard personnel. My son, Ryan David Jopek, was a cav scout who was KIA in Iraq two years after I was there myself. This behavior is NOT acceptable. I'm really very sorry you have apparently no comprehension of the shit storm your troop and her cohorts cooked up with their little stunt and her subsequent postings on social media as a member of an Honor Guard.

Now, I don't know what, if anything, you and your chain intend to do about this. Let's hope that whatever is done your troop truly understands the severity of the whole thing and can somehow grasp the importance of being part of such an esteemed detail.

If she doesn't, then you have failed her as her NCO.

" ...Let's hope that whatever is done your troop truly understands the severity of the whole thing and can somehow grasp the importance of being part of such an esteemed detail. ..."

Brian was not the only Gold Star who was distressed, offended by this apparent misunderstanding by these morons as to just how wrong their actions were.

Gold Star Widow Karin Windorski (herself a Veteran) wrote an open letter:

Karin Windorski Cruz Please feel free to pass this letter on to[...] the soldier in question.

Are you the owner of the "traaww" Instagram account (screen shot attached)? If so, please let me introduce myself.

My Name is Karin Windorski. I am the widow of CW3 Philip Windorski, Jr. I became a Gold Star Widow when my beloved gave his life on the battlefield in Iraq on 25 January 2009. He spent just over 17 years in the Army, serving our country with HONOR, DIGNITY and RESPECT. I met Phil at Fort Hood when we were both stationed there. (Yes, I too have worn the uniform of our United States Army.) Together we built a life and a family.

On a very frigid February morning, hundreds gathered outside in BITTER BELOW FREEZING TEMPERATURES in upstate Minnesota as the Minnesota National Guard Honor Guard soldiers stood proudly by my husband's casket. (I could tell they weren't having any FUN at this FUNeral. Maybe we should have asked for you and your team to perform the duties instead?)

The Honor Guard soldiers took the time to show my beloved the respect HE EARNED during his almost two decades worth of selfless service to our county. Those same soldiers carefully folded the flag that just moments before was draped over the casket that held all that physically remained of my beloved and presented that sacred symbol to me, passing on the respect I HAD EARNED by standing by my husband's side for 11-1/2 years. And then those same soldiers presented our three children each with their very own folded flag and showed them the respect THEY HAD EARNED by giving up their dreams of having their father there at their baseball games, soccer games, high school graduations, weddings, birth of their own children, etc... (And just so you know, not one of those Honor Guard soldiers "jacked up" our flags simply because they had to perform their duties in the dead of winter. Out of all five flags presented to me, my children, and my mother-in-law that day, not one bit of red was showing.)

Ms. Harrison, it is one thing to be so incredibly disrespectful to our heroes and their families, but to do it WHILE IN UNIFORM and to post it on the Internet is UNCONSCIONABLE, UNETHICAL, INDEFENSIBLE and WRONG! Your actions are a disgrace to yourself, your unit, the Wisconsin National Guard and to the United States Army. I pray that this grievous error in judgement will be the last you will have when it comes to dishonoring our country's fallen heroes and their families.

I truly hope that this message speaks to your heart. And I hope that you will see how much hurt you have caused to many as your pictures are now floating all over Facebook and they will not be going away anytime soon. Out of respect for all of the good and honorable soldiers who wear the uniform for the right reasons, please consider whether or not you can learn how to respect what it means to be on the Honor Guard and what it means to be a United States Soldier. If not, I implore you, leave the military ASAP and pursue your goals and dreams in the civilian sector.

Karin Windorski

Mrs Windorski is not the only Gold Star Widow to share her sorrow.

 Deborah Iverson May, Gold Star Widow of SSG Donald May Jr, told me this:


Letting off steam is not a good excuse for the widows... That woman has no respect for the role she has in the military...We don't find any of the photos at all amusing. I guess that comes from our angst and sadness at understanding she's joking about someone's husband and soulmate, or daddy, or someone's child.  

I think to even function properly in the military you have to have a sense of pride at what you are doing. That girl doesn't belong in that role and it's quite possible she shouldn't be in the military.
Nothing takes away the pain but BOY, you can add to it! And that girl sure did!

 The Gold Star community was - understandingly - unanimous in their outrage..

Mickey Bryant, Gold Star Mom of SSG Jason Arnette, shared her thoughts with me:

Wow and not in a good way. How can people be so disrespectful to our fallen heroes, especially those to wear our military uniforms. It's a good thing I'm not standing closer..
 This is who they have totally disrespected and so many more like my son. 

What they all deserve is an Article 15 Commanding Officer's Non-Judicial Punishment with maximum sanctions under that article. Then if they do the same or something similar, a Court Martial. 
Letting off steam, my ass.  NEVER is there a proper time for this behavior.  Make no difference if it was an empty casket. It is still representing a Family and a Fallen Hero who stood in worst condition than the cold so she could be an idiot of disrespect. 

Military members are held to high standards, this is an act of foolishness and lack of pride for what and whom they represent and it is just not about the pictures but about how they carry themselves on a day to day basis, it should and must be addressed... 

What matters? Our Fallen Military members matter, and should NEVER be disrespected in this manner. Once this NO LONGER MATTERS, is when this country has big issues!What matters? Our Fallen Military members matter, and should NEVER be disrespected in this manner. Once this NO LONGER MATTERS, is when this country has big issues!

  This was just sent to me,  and it is the response from Holly at Arlington (who is well known to many of our Gold Star Families): 

I've looked on the calendar (5 at work here) and nowhere do I see it is officially " National Nothing is SACRED Week"..So here's to putting an end to the notion that anything done in a uniform is okey dokey as long as you can find someone else to grin at it. My dad used to say, "Don't say anything you don't want to read in the POST"... same goes for lifting your iphone and posting in the ether.. it IS in the Post then. I've seen enough in 2 days to lose all feeling in my face, but I have a clarity to share. 

Howzabout zero tolerance for acting a fool while in any class of uniform,.. and for the folks who see the fault in the outting, not in the deed.-- Howzabout a thresh-hold for behavior that anything done in uniform (photographed or not) rest on this criteria alone..--- Would you be proud to be holding a framed copy of the image of that moment ? Would you be equally proud in your uniform to hand it to your CO/Commander/Chief of your Branch or Commander in Chief? Would you be proud to take it to the WALL, Iwo, KWM, WWII Memorial, or stand central in 60 holding it at Arlington? If the answer is no to any of those things,.. it's likely that what's initially wrong with the picture is that there is a person in it who isn't proud of that uniform, and should be relieved of it.

 As the hours marched on yesterday, and as more became aware of these pictures, many more Military members and their families spoke up.

Military Mom Leah Petrilli  said this:

As the mother of a deployed Marine I am completely outraged by the actions and lame explanations of these individuals. They are not worthy to serve in our military. Kick them all out. Disgraceful.
They [Chain of Command] better do something severe to placate the Gold Star Families. And quickly.

An Army wife and veteran advocate said this - and yes, I am quoting her directly:

This is what happens when HONOR is no longer a teaching code. They get rid of the soldiers who learned honor, respect, and love of country, and soon it will be a military of whiny titty babies...

[I asked her:  do you think honor, respect and love of country can be taught? To the Troops? Surely, they should already have that? ]

Not always. If it is buried, and the Drill Sgt will 'find' it.  In basic training, they are taught a different way. Not every soldier joins because of love of country. But after Basic they better.   

The Veterans spoke out loudly with their comments raging from hope that they never had these morons as their Honor Guard if they had been killed in action, to suggestions as to what they believe the punishment should be.  Those 'behavior corrections'  ranged from specific physical damage being rained down upon the offenders, 'to wall to wall counseling, ' to Dishonorable Discharge.

One USN Veteran said this:

Seriously, FIX YOURSELVES!!! This is unacceptable at the BEST of times and shouldn't be considered at the worst. If you cannot instill a better moral compass in your soldiers then they and you need to seek life elsewhere.

That was his public comment, and his private comments to me?  Yes, I have his permission to quote directly:

Ever notice this keeps coming up with these subpar jackasses?.....I guess you can take the rat out the hood but not the hood out the rat...just because affirmative action and lowered standards ensures them a job among us, we cant make them be worth a shit.
And on my ship, [...] and many many more......we would have had out attitude changed for us if we even THOUGHT about this bullshit.

 His comments were certainly representative of the Veteran community's highly vocal condemnation of the ongoing disrespect by members of our Military who, above ALL, should understand how they are expected to behave once they don the US Military uniform, and swear an oath to Serve.

As always, the Veterans over at This Ain't Hell... had much to say, as they join the universal discussion about this latest public airing of what is going on within our Military these days.

Bottom line is that this behavior, whether made public or not, is NOT ACCEPTABLE.  It has been pointed out that it is not just the Wisconsin National Guard that is represented by these latest pictures.  As has been demanded above, swift action needs to be taken - across the different branches of our Military - to address this mindset which seems to be like a virus pervasive in the Military.  This must be checked.  

There are some who attempt to excuse these latest revelations as a momentary lapse in judgement by people doing stupid things because they are too young to know better.  I do not accept that.  Yes, we have all done stupid crap in our youth. But luckily for most of us, pictures of our actions are not surfacing on the internet - which does last forever.  

FACT:  The Gold Star Families' Sacrifice and grief is also forever, and they deserve so much better.

Thus far, more than 18 hours after these pictures spread like wildfire across social media, no further public statement has been issued by the Wisconsin National Guard.

 There was this headline from about CST: 

Soldier suspended over 'inappropriate' pictures from funeral honors duty

That is certainly a good start. However, as is evident by the sampling of reactions shared above, severe corrective actions MUST be taken to cut out this perception of the acceptance of inappropriate behavior by those who cannot show all due respect and HONOR to our Fallen Heroes.

Honor is one of the bedrocks within all our Military.   Day in, day out, the thousands of our Military men and women act with integrity and honor.  Time for WI NG to clean house.
