N.J. Wants to Outsource Radioactive Garbage to South Carolina

In yet another example of how the nation’s waste management methods are absolutely unsustainable, a long-running debate between two waste disposal companies and a South Carolina environmental regulatory agency regarding the shipping of 300 railcars containing about 60,000 to 78,000 tons worth of radioactive dirt from New Jersey to South Carolina landfills is beginning to heat up yet again.

The waste at issue would be coming from a housing site in Sayreville, New Jersey that is currently being redeveloped and “cleaned up” for future purposes. The soil was originally recovered from an industrial cleanup site by the Raritan River, located south of New York City.

While it is claimed that the majority of the dirt contains “natural radiation,” SC regulators claim that radiation has been “technically enhanced” and has become more concentrated while at the site in New Jersey. This would, of course, cause the material to become more radioactive.

Yet Sayreville Seaport Associates, the company currently housing the contaminated soil, is still determined to outsource its own radioactive garbage to the Lee County, South Carolina dump that sits off of Interstate 20.

Unfortunately for Sayreville, the Lee County garbage dump, which is operated by Republic Services, is not designed for radioactive industrial waste – it is only designed to hold household garbage. Indeed, even the household garbage that it currently holds has become somewhat of a local issue regarding the overwhelming smell caused by the landfill.

With that in mind, it is fortunate that some South Carolina environmentalists and some state lawmakers are opposing the new dumping effort.

As Sammy Fretwell of The State wrote in his article entitled, “N.J. still targeting S.C. garbage dump for nuclear waste disposal,”
Disposing of out-of-state waste, particularly toxic waste, has for years been a sore spot among Palmetto State residents. The state at one point was home to a national nuclear waste landfill in Barnwell County, a regional hazardous waste dump at Lake Marion, hazardous waste incinerators in the Upstate and a medical waste incinerator outside Hampton. Many of those facilities have closed or ramped down operations since the 1990s, but big garbage dumps remain an issues.
In this case, however, even the dump itself appears to be resisting the waste.

Still, according to Fretwell’s article, records show that Republic was initially supportive of receiving the waste, and the Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) even approved the disposal last year. However, DHEC soon changed its mind and stated that the dirt was too radioactive to be placed in the Lee County dump.

Fretwell writes that DHEC then changed its mind once again, stating that the dirt was not too radioactive but that it did need to be handled with extra safety precautions and should not be allowed to sit for a long period of time.

Sayreville Seaport has appealed the decision made by DHEC, arguing that the agency is violating a federal law that prevents one state from keeping another state’s waste disposal out of its borders. Fretwell writes that Sayreville’s appeal claims DHEC’s decision “is considered a violation of the federal commerce clause.”

However, while it is unclear if Sayreville’s appeal will be successful, Repbulic Services has stated that the Lee County landfill “will not accept these soils,” even if Sayreville wins the legal battle.

Jamey Amick, a Republic executive told The State newspaper, “They [Sayreville Seaport] are trying to relax the guidelines enough where you could get Republic to huddle back up and say, ‘OK, yeah, we think we might can do that.’” He went on to say that “Republic will not accept this material under the current stipulations DHEC has asked us to modify.’”

Of course, to those who have any modicum of understanding of how interactions and agreements work between corporations and government agencies, Amick’s statement “under the current stipulations DHEC has asked us to modify” sounds anything but reassuring.

However, this writer was able to obtain an official statement from a media spokesperson at Republic which reads, 
Lee County Landfill, LLC (LCL), the owner and operator of the Lee County Landfill near Bishopville, South Carolina will not accept these soils at the Landfill. LCL is not associated with Sayreville’s effort to gain DHEC approval for disposal of the soils in South Carolina.
The statement also reads:
Due to the extremely low levels of radioactive constituents, it is our understanding that the soils are not harmful to human health or the environment.
Thus, one must hope that this claim is not merely another corporation leaving itself an out; while, at the same time, making backroom deals to accept the soils.

Interestingly enough, as Fretwell reports: 
South Carolina has a low-level nuclear waste dump near Barnwell that is available to New Jersey’s radioactive waste, but atomic waste experts have said it is cheaper to dispose of material in a garbage landfill. Burying the waste in South Carolina also would be cheaper than disposing of it in some Northeastern states, where dumping fees can be twice as high.
Obviously it’s cheaper to dump the dirt in a landfill designed for household garbage than it is to properly dispose of it in a facility designed to handle radioactive waste. It’s even cheaper to dump it right where you got it from to begin with. However, this issue is about the effect on the environment and the health of those who live near the waste – not what is more convenient or cost effective for a corporation.

Indeed, there is also little doubt that dumping the dirt in the Northeastern states would bring much higher costs than it would in South Carolina. However, South Carolina didn’t make the waste.

Is it the fault of South Carolina that the disposal of waste created by companies located in the Northeastern states actually costs more in the Northeastern states? If so, then it seems we are setting a very disturbing trend for South Carolina and other states to become the dumping grounds of the more populated and heavily taxed Northeastern part of the country.

This entire issue, however, only serves to illustrate an even larger concern which is that waste management has become an entirely privatized “service” that has been left in the hands of for-profit companies that care only about the bottom line – not providing services; and certainly not about the health and well-being of the environment and the people that might suffer as a result of their decisions.

The truth is that the entire system of waste management in the United States is wholly unsustainable.

Producing materials that are not biodegradable, or that have a life of radioactivity measuring in the billions of years cannot continue to be buried in a hole in the ground and forgotten about.

As I wrote in my book, Five Sense Solutions, the United States urgently needs a Manhattan Project-scale effort to discover new and affordable ways of recycling all forms of waste, be it household or radioactive; and a program implemented to make sure that recycling takes place. Of course, this program should be conducted without the help of trash can spies or garbage police; and it should also be implemented as a public service – not a private asset-stripping operation. Ultimately, even waste that has been buried in the past should become a candidate for recycling.

Digging a hole for collective refuse has never been a successful means of waste disposal in human history – digging bigger ones will not change that fact.

Evidence Contradicts Whooping Cough Pro-Vaccine Propaganda

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 23, 2012

In the traditional manner of annual pro-vaccine propaganda, a recent report by Laura L. Myers of Reuters published on July 20, 2012, continues the seasonal fear-mongering by the vaccine industry and the medical establishment in an attempt to stampede Americans into receiving the DTaP (Diptheria, Tetanus & Pertussis) vaccine.

Entitled, “U.S. whooping cough outbreak could be worst in half century,” the article repeats the warning that has undoubtedly come straight from the vaccine industry and the public health agencies they control, that 2012 “is on track to be the most severe [Pertussis outbreak] in over half a century . . .”

The culprit for the next outbreak that will kill us all? You guessed it – the lack of vaccination.

In her article Myers states (repeats) the claim that “possible waning vaccination” is the cause for the alleged increase in the numbers of Pertussis cases occurring in the United States in 2012.

Myers (and every other mainstream media outlet that reprinted this drug company and medical agency press release) goes on to repeat the following statistics in a manner that is clearly intended to frighten the less-informed into rushing to their nearest clinic and begging for the DTaP shot. She writes,
Washington State, which declared an epidemic in April, and Wisconsin were particularly hard hit, with each reporting more than 3,000 cases, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 
Nine people have died overall and the number of cases was already more than double than at the same time last year.
The article continues by quoting Dr. Anne Schuchat of the CDC as stating that the current outbreak could actually overtake the most severe outbreak that allegedly occurred in 1959, “when 40,000 cases were reported.” 

At this point, it is difficult not to be reminded of the Swine Flu “pandemic” that would eclipse the previous outbreak in 1976 and cause widespread death the world over. Obviously, the answer to this public health crisis was vaccines, vaccines, and more vaccines – even if they were untested and filled with toxic chemicals. But while the fearful masses rushed to their doctors and health departments to receive the shots, it was determined later that not only was the Swine Flu risks overinflated, but that the entire affair was concocted by the drug companies and health agencies[1] in an effort to boost the vaccine industry.

Nevertheless, it is important to look at the new propaganda push centered around the DTaP or Pertussis/Whooping Cough vaccine in 2012.

First, through cleverly worded statistics, the individual who put these reports together was indeed able to make the cases of Pertussis seem to be a public health emergency. Yet, although the numbers may be high, the speculation that those numbers will rise to the levels of the alleged 1959 peak is just that – speculation.

In fact, in pointing out that 9 people have died so far- although it sounds terrifying - does not necessarily mean that this year will bring about even more deaths. While 1959 does represent somewhat of a peak in the statistics presented by the CDC, the fact is that even if the number of deaths in 2012 double to 18, the death rate would still not equal that of the years 2004 or 2005.

This is not to say, however, that cases of Pertussis are not on the rise. It is merely to show that the population should not engage in immediate panic and emergency measures.

Indeed, there is cause for concern regarding the disturbing trend of increasing cases of Pertussis, not just in 2012, but overall since the late 1990s. However, this concern should not be expressed for the reasons we are fed by the mainstream media and medical establishment, i.e. “waning vaccination rates.”

In fact, we should all be concerned for an entirely different reason – the fact that it is not waning vaccination rates that is causing the uptick in cases of Pertussis, but increased vaccination rates.

Keep in mind, the recent increase in cases of Pertussis occurring from the mid-1980s to the present, (as represented by the statistics provided by the CDC on page 220 of the CDC PinkBook pdf “Pertussis”) has taken place in the most vaccinated population in history.

However, the fact that the morbidity and mortality rates of Whooping Cough have decreased as a whole since its once legitimately-feared status as child killer in the late 1800s and early 1900s is not debatable. What is debatable is the reason for this decrease.

To clear up any confusion in the statistics provided by the CDC in the PinkBook “Pertussis” booklet, it is important to note that the statistics provided on page 219 allegedly demonstrating the effectiveness of the Pertussis vaccine have been cleverly cropped in order to present false data.

In this graph, we see the steep decline of cases of Whooping Cough in the ten-year period that the vaccine was itself introduced. However, the graph actually begins in the same ten-year period in which the vaccine was introduced, thus preventing us from seeing whether or not there was in fact a decrease (or even an increase) in the rates of Whooping Cough at the time the graph begins.

Of course, when the full numbers are shown, the information actually demonstrates that the rates of Whooping Cough in the U.S. had already declined in a decisive fashion before the vaccine was ever introduced. The same trend is shown in the statistics of England and Wales.[2] Thus, the vaccine cannot be credited with the reduction of Whooping Cough.

More likely, it was improved sanitation standards coupled with the recovery from the Great Depression and gains made by the labor movement (health, safety, working condition laws and rules, etc.) that actually ended the reign of Pertussis.

But while the fact that the CDC would intentionally create statistics that misrepresent the truth regarding the efficacy of the Pertussis vaccine should be alarming, what is even more concerning is the fact that the efficacy of the vaccine itself has never been proven. In fact, there has never been a study proving any vaccine to be effective that wasn’t funded or conducted by a drug company or vaccine maker.[3]

Even the mainstream media outlet Reuters has had to admit that GlaxoSmithKline “has never studied the duration of the vaccine’s protection after the shot given to four- to six-year-olds.”

Indeed, even more concerning than the basic efficacy of the vaccination are the dangers associated with the shot. For instance, as Alex Loglia explains, the potential side effects of the DTaP (labeled DPT in his paper) vaccine are:
  1. Severe temperature elevations 105 degrees or higher.
  2. Collapse with rapid recovery.
  3. Collapse followed by prolonged prostration in shock-like state.
  4. Screaming episodes.
  5. Isolated convulsions with or without fever.
  6. Frank encephalopathy, which is brain damage, with changes in the level of consciousness, focal neurological signs, convulsions with or without permanent neurological and/or mental deficit.
And these are just the side effects which are admitted and listed on the vaccine insert.

In addition, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), has also been linked to the DTaP vaccination.

Yet, ironically, one of the more common side effects of the Pertussis vaccination is that it may actually cause Pertussis. In fact, in the Reuters article quoted earlier, Dr. David Witt of the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in San Rafael, California actually admitted that Pertussis was more likely to occur in vaccinated individuals than it is in those who are not vaccinated. Obviously, to Dr. Witt and to many low-level vaccine proponents, this may seem counterintuitive.

Nevertheless, the article reads,
In early 2010, a spike in cases appeared at Kaiser Permanente in San Rafael, and it was soon determined to be an outbreak of whooping cough -- the largest seen in California in more than 50 years. Witt had expected to see the illnesses center around unvaccinated kids, knowing they are more vulnerable to the disease. "We started dissecting the data. What was very surprising was the majority of cases were in fully vaccinated children. That's what started catching our attention.
Regardless, even in the latest Reuters article, and in the many other propaganda pieces repeated throughout the mainstream media, it has been admitted that the cases involving the highest illness rate had, in fact, been vaccinated with the DTaP shot.

When one understands the preceding facts, then it becomes easier to understand why the rates of Pertussis have been climbing along with the rate of vaccinations.

Furthermore, the fact that the United States economy is crumbling along with its infrastructure and almost every other traditional aspect of American life, adds to the danger of legitimate outbreaks as well as those caused by vaccines and medical obstinence.

Lastly, it must be noted that the idea of vaccination against Pertussis is not necessarily a logical one. This is because Pertussis is not caused by a virus, but a bacteria. In addition, Pertussis is an illness which can be treated with antibiotics.

The recent media barrage of fear regarding the potential 2012 Pertussis “outbreaks” which may have been caused by the vaccine itself, is nothing more than a recycling of tried and true propaganda designed to deceive the general public into accepting yet another toxic and dangerous vaccine.

Every year, the American people are subjected to the hyping of a coming epidemic that will decimate humanity and, of course, kill their children if they do not rush to their doctor's office or the local health department for a deadly shot.

In reality, it is the vaccine that is more likely to cause the disease(s) and/or side effects that will kill them or their children.

Swiftly Blaming Bulgaria Terror Attack on Iran Spells False Flag

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 19, 2012

Almost immediately after a bus full of Israeli tourists exploded outside of the airport in Burgas, Bulgaria, both Israel and the United States began hurling accusations that Iran was behind the violence. According to the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry, at least six people were killed and approximately thirty were wounded.

Nicolas Kulish and Matthew Brunwasser of the New York Times wrote:

Photographs and video taken at the airport showed billowing black smoke from the explosion that left the bus a blackened skeleton, scorched several buses nearby, shattered windows and forced the airport to temporarily close. Eyewitnesses quoted by Israeli news media said some victims were on fire as they tried to escape the flaming bus and that many had suffered severe burns.
In a formal statement, President Barack Obama condemned what he called “today’s barbaric terrorist attack on Israeli’s in Bulgaria.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu went much further in his condemnation and stated that “All signs point to Iran.”

While there was no immediate statement from Iran, Netanyahu was quick to point out that the Bulgarian bus explosion came on the 18th anniversary of a bombing that took place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, at the Argentine Jewish Center that killed 85 people. Argentine prosecutors also blamed this attack on Iran.

Netanyahu further stated that “Over the last few months we have seen Iran’s attempts to attack Israelis in Thailand, India, Georgia, Kenya, Cyprus, and other countries.”

He continued by calling these alleged attacks a pattern of a “global Iranian terror onslaught and Israel will react firmly to it.”

Indeed, Israel has been trying it’s best to “react” to Iran for several years, at the very least ever since the years of the Bush regime.

However, as more and more facts emerge regarding the Bulgarian bus explosion, the more and more reasons we have for concluding that Iran was not responsible for it , just like the other attacks supposedly committed by Iran.

To begin with, the very fact that both Israel and the United States had such immediate knowledge as to whom was responsible for the attacks seems questionable at best. However, the fact that this information would point to Iran after both the United States and Israel have been so vocal and open with their desire to harass, provoke, and attack the Middle Eastern nation, is even more suspect.

Just taking a look at some of the most basic facts of this incident seem to incriminate Israel or even the NATO/Anglo-American (Mossad/CIA/MI-6) intelligence agencies much more so than it does Iran.

First, one must ask the obvious question of cui bono? Or, “who benefits?”

Would Iran, encircled by U.S. military bases, located near an increasingly destabilized Syria, and in the crosshairs of the most powerful military powers on the face of the earth, really benefit by committing a solitary act of terror that, beyond killing 6 civilians, has no military objective whatsoever? Indeed, the only thing such an act would accomplish would be to whip up political and public support for an action against Iran on behalf of those nations who already had their finger on the trigger and have only been looking for public justification to pull it.

However, if one flips the subject nation of this question around and looks at what Israel or the United States/Anglo-American empire would have to gain by such an event, the bombing tends makes much more sense. Indeed, the increase in public support for military action against Iran would only serve to boost the ability of the political forces and shadow government machines to wage their long-desired war against Iran.

Let us not forget that false flag attacks which were designed to be blamed on Iran have been attempted on at least two occasions that we know of in the last several years. The first was the plan by then Vice President Dick Cheney to replicate the Gulf of Tonkin incident with boats and marines painted up with Iranian colors which would then stage a shootout with American naval ships. This would have provided the rally cry of national defense needed to launch an attack against the “aggressor” nation which would have been bombed into the stone age and WW3 begun long before any real revelation of the true nature of the event came to light.

The second was the absolutely hilarious staged attempt by a so-called “Iranian used car salesman” planning to engage in acts of terror inside the United States.

But while both of these incidents were unsuccessful, it appears that the Bulgarian bombing incident may have more traction. Propaganda efforts have, for the most part, been increased in the years since Cheney boat incident.

Nevertheless, it should also be mentioned that both Israel and the United States would benefit immensely from the fact that the all of the victims (with the exception of the tour guide) were Israeli, thus completing the necessity of the false flag to be perceived as an attack upon oneself.

“Certainly,” members of the public are thinking, “Israel wouldn’t bomb it’s own citizens, would they?”

Although the attacks were apparently carried out by a suicide bomber, this should not serve to dampen suspicions of the involvement of Western or Israeli intelligence in the bombings. After all, it is well-known that “fundamentalists,” fanatics, and jihadists like those in al-Qaeda, Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, or the Free Syrian Army are completely controlled by CIA/MI-6 and a small contingent of other Western intelligence agencies. Some even have strong ties to Israeli intelligence.

One other interesting note concerning the technical aspects of the attacks. After the bus had exploded, Oren Katz, an Israeli onlooker, was forced by circumstance to assume the role of emergency worker. This is because the Security agents themselves were essentially doing nothing, another strange circumstance that may, or may not, indicate a possible false flag.

Katz recalls, “It was strange that there were so many security people around but none of them seemed to be focused on actually helping the wounded people, and I couldn’t believe that I of all people was the one taking care of this burning woman and stopping her from burning up.”

Strange indeed. However, it is not only strange that the “security people” would not be focused on helping the wounded people, it is strange that they would be there to begin with. More than one Bulgarian citizen has told this writer that security presence – any security presence – at public bus terminals in Bulgaria is an extremely rare event.

In fact, it was stated to me that, “there would be no security at all. They [security personnel/police] would not have been there at all unless they had prior knowledge of something going on.”

So, with this in mind, one encounters yet another interesting “coincidence” that involves security personnel that just “happen” to be in the exact location of an unforeseen terrorist attack. Such an occurrence is reminiscent of the many terror drills occurring on both 9/11[1] and 7/7.

At this point, the claim that Iran is responsible for the Bulgarian bus bombing seems ludicrous. The only beneficiaries of such an act would be the aggressor nations of Israel and the United States as well as the rest of the world army currently known as NATO, itching to plant its boots on Iranian soil.

As for the technical aspects which, at this point are still being revealed, it is safe to say that no nation is immune to the methods of false flag terror employed by the shadow government factions which themselves exist inside every country on earth.

If the United States, the UK, Russia, and virtually every other country in the world has, at some point, fallen victim to false flag terror, there is no reason to believe that Bulgaria would be any different.

As another Bulgarian citizen recently stated to me after hearing of the bus bombing, “with enough money you can make anybody do anything in this country.”

New Enhanced Virus Emerges After Vaccine Combination

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 19, 2012

According to a report by Clare Peddie of Adelaide Now, the administration of two different vaccines to chickens in order to “control infectious disease” has resulted in the creation of an entirely new virus strain in the Melbourne and Sydney areas of Australia. The new strains were highly virulent and had a relatively high mortality rate according to researchers.

Chickens are routinely vaccinated in Australia for laryngotracheitis virus (ILTV) which is itself an infectious disease. There are three available types of ILTV vaccines in Australia.

Recently, however, the application of two or more types of vaccines resulted in a recombination of the DNA of two virus strains which were administered in separate doses and thus an entirely new strain of the virus.

Asia-Pacific Centre for Animal Health researchers examined the DNA sequence of the virus against the DNA sequence of the existing strains contained within the three vaccines and were “surprised” to find that the new virus was an entirely new strain.

The fact that the virus is so highly communicable is also extremely concerning. But the mortality rate associated with the new virus is even more worrisome.

In this case, 17% of the chickens infected with the new virus were killed. The New York Daily News reports a mortality rate of 20%.

Indeed, University of Melbourne lecturer Dr. Joanne Devlin stated that it was “more virulent and never before seen in the field.”

Previously, many researchers were under the impression that such an occurrence was not possible, particularly as a result of vaccinations.

Researchers are claiming that the new viruses cannot be transmitted to humans and are thus no cause for concern in terms of human health or food safety. Of course, this is stated with a great deal of confidence considering the fact that the new virus strain is . . . well . . . new.

In fact, until recently, these researchers didn’t even believe that the creation of this virus was possible. So should they really be so reassuring over the effects of something they don’t fully understand?

Commenting on the research which was published in the journal Science, Professor Ian Gust stated that, although the recombined new virus as a result of multiple vaccination was an “interesting finding,” the administration of herpes vaccine in chickens is conducted via a much different process than it is in humans.

While Gust admitted that “live attenuated vaccines” are used in humans, he said “it would be extremely unusual for a doctor to use different strains of the same virus in succession.”

Of course, describing the application of two different strains of virus in human vaccines as “extremely unusual” is similar to how the description of the possibility of virus recombination and transmission via vaccine in chickens would have been described only a short time ago.

Obviously, “surprises” like the creation of novel forms of viruses are to be expected when the scientists and researchers themselves are wholly dedicated to the faith-based field of vaccination.

Regardless, this recent incident only demonstrates further that vaccines containing “attenuated” viruses are indeed capable of transmitting the virus it has allegedly been designed to prevent. It also goes to show that, in contrast to erroneous claims made by doctors and vaccine promoters the world over that “attenuated” means “dead,” the viruses contained in the vaccines are very much alive.

In fact, it has been well-established that vaccines are capable of transmitting disease by virtue of their infection to the individual who received it.

However, as this recent “surprising” case of new virus creation illustrates, the administration of vaccines may also cause side effects which may have even bigger consequences than the harm done to the unfortunate vaccine recipient.

Indeed, the knowledge that recombinant can recombine again and, as a result, form novel viruses, is not new at all. Because “recombination” is just another term for “genetic engineering,” it has been well-established that the modified DNA may act in an unpredictable fashion, with one of the possibilities being the creation of new viruses.[1]

While many in the medical industry may be surprised at this “new” development, the truth is that the myth of vaccine safety and effectiveness quickly falls apart once real science is applied. We can only hope that a sizeable portion of the general public begin to realize this fact.

Mega Stun Gun Introduced to DOD's Non-Lethal Arsenal

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 16, 2012

If 500 hundred deaths and countless abuses at the hands of taser-friendly police is not enough to garner any concern by the average American, then perhaps the new “Nano-Second Electrical Pulse” Mega Stun Gun being introduced by the Department of Defense might do the trick.

The new stun gun was recently unveiled at the DOD’s Non-Lethal Weapons Industry Day and it works by hitting the target individual with alarmingly high voltage for a very short amount of time – i.e. billionths of seconds. However, the amount of electricity fired into the person’s body, while not specified in terms of exact voltage, will be enough to not only stun the individual but render them unconscious.

The victim is supposed to be able to regain consciousness as soon as the flow of electricity stops. However, the Pentagon is predictably working on yet another version of this “improved” stun gun that will render the victim unconscious for several minutes.

The ethical issues surrounding the invention and deployment of such technology, particularly on the streets of the United States are legion. As Lorenzo Franceschi-Bicchierai writes for Wired,

How dangerous a device like that could be is unclear. Stun guns have a long and well documented history of abuse — even students and grandmas have been victims of overzealous, Taser-happy police officers. And their use, despite being labeled “non-lethal,” can be deadly. According to Amnesty International, at least 500 people have died after being shocked with tasers. In 2008, a jury in San Jose deemed the company that produces the stun gun, Taser International, responsible for the death of Robert Heston, a 40-year-old man who was shot by the cops multiple times. The jury found that the company failed to warn the police that repeated discharges could have a deadly effect on the target.
Of course, while the technology itself is obviously dangerous, it is not so much the devices that are responsible for the deaths, as it is the fact that they have been placed in the hands of persons wholly incapable of operating them in a responsible manner.

Nevertheless, while the new stun guns are merely in the “conceptual” phase, make no mistake that they will be rolled out against the American people in the very near future. Keep in mind, anything that is revealed to the general public in any form by the Pentagon, DARPA, or other “scientific” agency has long been understood, studied, and perfected. The only step left is the introduction of the technology to citizenry on a wide enough scale so that they will eventually come to accept it as normal.

Thus, this technology is in much more than the “conceptual” phase – it is in “introductory” phase.

For instance, in his own write-up in Wired, Franceschi-Bicchierai states that “If the Pentagon ever wants this device to see the light of day, it will have to strike the right balance between disabling power and potential damage.”

Yet, the very fact that tasers have been distributed to virtually every police department in the country, and police themselves are apt to use these devices with impunity and without regard to the safety of the victims, already indicates that a major imbalance exists. Repeated and well-documented cases of damage and death should further demonstrate to the reader that the only balance that needs to be struck is one which removes the unbridled power of force and coercion held by the State over the average citizen who is treated as a member of a herd to be corralled by whatever means necessary. The State, in essence, is never satisfied until it has a total monopoly of power.

It should be noted, however, that this new technology is not the only device being introduced to the general public by way of the Department of Defense’s Non-Lethal Weapons Industry Day held in Quantico, Virginia on June 22, 2012.

The Pentagon’s Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate, the DOD agency responsible for such projects had long been researching such technologies and has been proposing such devices as sticky foam guns, sonic cannons, and machines that produce voices inside the victim’s head, reproducing the effects of schizophrenia.

Other technologies include the use of laser beams to blind victims or make them feel unbearable heat. Both of these devices have either been introduced or are in use today, using slightly different technological mechanisms.

The “dazzling laser” mentioned above is designed to work from over 500 meters (0.3 miles) away.

The Non-Lethal Thermal Laser, which is designed to produce a powerful heating sensation in the victim’s body is similar to the Active Denial System which is already completed and uses microwaves to achieve the same effect.

The Pentagon is also working on technologies that could affect machines, boats, and other vehicles. These technologies “would use radio frequency, high powered microwaves or high-voltage waveforms [that] would disrupt or damage the target’s engine controls, potentially shutting them off. These immobilizing rays could even be delivered from the air by a drone.”

Franceschi-Bicchierai concludes his report for Wired by stating:
In short, don’t get your hopes — or fears — too high. Some of these projects will end up being labeled either ‘too ambitious,’ or ‘too deadly’…and they’ll never go from a cool presentation to reality.
In other words, Franceshi-Bucchierai’s statement is merely a spin-off of the traditional “It couldn’t happen here” statement - the famous swan song of every society that ever descended into tyranny.

The problem is that it can happen here and that it is happening here. We need only open our eyes and look around us to see it.

Facebook Banking on a Cashless Society

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 15, 2012

As if the current methods of evaporating privacy and pushing a world toward the Cashless Society were not moving fast enough, Facebook is now developing and beta testing an app that would allow users to “pay their utility bills, balance their checkbooks, and transfer money at the same time they upload vacation photos to the site for friends to see.”

Essentially, the new application which is currently in beta phase with the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, allows for interactions regarding banking and financial services over alleged secure and private connections.

A similar, albeit attenuated program, is already in existence in India which was created by ICICI Bank in conjunction with Facebook that allows users, “through a secure SSL connection,” to “view account details and mini statements as well as apply for debit cards and request chequebooks.”

See the ICICI Bank Facebook App Demo Video here.

Indeed, KeyPoint Credit Union also has its own Facebook app that allows for many of the same features including the user’s ability to access all of their KeyPoint accounts via the app.

Facebook is obviously known for many things – but none of them are its respect for privacy. In fact, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been very open about his disdain for even the concept of privacy, stating openly that he simply doesn’t believe in it.

Still, both Facebook and the participants in this emerging app are assuring future customers that there is no need for concern regarding leakage of personal data. Commonwealth Bank, for instance, holds that it will not launch the program without a 100% guarantee of security.

With this in mind and, given the track record as well as the open declarations of disregard for privacy by Facebook and its directors, would anyone in their right minds trust their online banking and financial information to the social networking giant?

Unfortunately, the answer is likely to be a resounding “Yes.”

Regardless of the stampede toward yet another privacy-destroying program, Ana Kasparian of The Young Turks accurately summed up some of the concerns regarding online banking privacy and the new Facebook app during a recent TYT broadcast. She said;
And I’ll tell you what my conspiracy theory is. Facebook makes money by selling ads. And the way that they sell ads is by telling the advertisers what their users are spending their money on. If they have the ability to see what you’re spending your money on via BillPay, on their website, then they’re going to sell that information to a third party. And then they’re going to be like ‘What? What privacy? What are you talking about?’
Kasparian should give herself more credit. Her deductions are merely logic based on previous experiences and the historical behavior of Facebook – not conspiracy theories.

 In keeping with the concerns regarding privacy, however, it is clear that these ridiculous apps will no doubt be able to be accessed via smartphones in addition to personal computers and will therefore be subject to even more hacking possibilities.

Indeed, the increasing number of “apps” and remote-smartphone related programs dealing with personal financial, banking, and payment information will undoubtedly produce an increase in the number of hacking and identity theft incidents. Thus, the public that was so easily enticed to use these programs under the guise of convenience will be calling for an increased level of security to reduce the ability of hackers to access the data they freely offered online once their poorly thought-out decisions come back to bite them.

Enter biometrics – the only sure way to protect against theft and hacking.

Unfortunately, however, such concerns as those expressed by Kasparian are almost guaranteed to go unheeded. If they are even addressed by Facebook or the respective participating banking institutions, it will only be discussed as a public relations move designed to placate those on the fence and the holdouts who will themselves be caught up in the dragnet in a matter of just a few years.

In the end, the new Facebook banking app is just one more step toward the ultimate goal of the Cashless Society and the requirement that even the most personal individual information such as iris scans, fingerprints, vein scans, facial photographs, and even DNA swabs be surrendered for the purpose of data security.

As I have stated on many occasions, these types of programs are always introduced under the guise of convenience. Then, as more and more people take the bait, the older methods of payment are seen as cumbersome and, eventually, are phased out completely. Mandates then replace what was once a personal choice.

Yet, what is so ironic about the Facebook banking app is that, while the program is touted as providing so much more convenience, even when putting privacy and Cashless Society issues aside and, with the program running at its optimum, the app really isn’t that much more convenient.

As one commenter on the TYT video quoted above wrote, “You can already do online banking at the same time as Facebook. It’s called opening a second tab you morons.”

WMD Drill 'Operation Four Aces' Underway in SC

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 12, 2012

In keeping with the alarming increase in the number of “drills” and “exercises” being conducted all across the country which simulate terrorism, civil unrest, and natural disasters – all situations which involve an overwhelming law enforcement or military response – the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina area is now conducting WMD “training exercises” in populated areas complete with all the accessories.

Described as an “exercise” designed to “help police, fire and emergency officials be better prepared for such a disaster,” the South Carolina Weapons of Mass Destruction Specialized Response Team exercise, which is called Operation Four Aces, began on Monday, July 9 and will continue until Friday, July 13.

According to Leslie Yancey, spokeswoman for the Horry County Fire Rescue, “officials” from all over South Carolina will take part in the exercise in order to “test the interoperability of specialized response teams in the event of an actual terrorist event in our state.”

The specialized response teams Yancey is referring to are agencies like SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics), EOD (Explosive Ordinance Disposal), USAR (Urban Search and Rescue), and HAZMAT (Hazardous Materials). Other departments may be taking part in the exercise as well but they were not announced in the initial reports coming from the Myrtle Beach area news sites.

The organizers of the event are calling on volunteers to participate and play the roles of doctors, nurses, students, faculty, and “casualties,” during the course of the exercise. The organizers have put out a special call to members of churches and civic groups.

All in all, Operation Four Aces will take place near the South Strand Medical Center, the Conway shooting, range or the Horry County Public Works Department.

Operation Four Aces is funded by a grant from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED) which then distributed the money to Horry County Emergency Management. The original grant is part of the DHS WMD Exercise Grant Program.

Even though the exercise will largely be taking place in plain view and with the help of citizen volunteers, Horry County Fire Rescue’s Chief of Training Matt Smith, who emphatically supports the program, states that he cannot reveal any further details about the event.

Interestingly enough, while the military is not openly participating in this exercise, the consortium of participants have put out a call for “civilians” to act as volunteers – apparently under the mistaken impression that because they have assumed a position of perceived power and authority, they are no longer civilians themselves.

Yet, although the military is not participating in this exercise outright (Operation Four Aces is designed to train State agencies, not Federal), the military seems to be overseeing the exercise in a more indirect sense.

This is because the training will be conducted by Red Tail Tactical Technology Inc., a private “tactical instruction” firm founded and operated by Don Hollenbaugh. The firm is based out of two locations, one being Meridian, Idaho and the other Fayetteville, North Carolina, right outside of Ft. Bragg.

Don Hollenbaugh, the founder of Red Tail, spent eight years of his military career with the 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta. In other words, Hollenbaugh is a former member of Delta Force who is now emerging in the private sector to provide “tactical instruction” to both military and law enforcement.

Although Red Tail is a private firm, it should be noted that the outsourcing of military duties (legal and otherwise) has increased exponentially in the last several years. Furthermore, it is important to remember that Delta Force has been one of the more visible military detachments involved in “domestic warfare training” as well as actual operations.

The fact that Red Tail is officially a private contractor should not deter anyone from understanding that there is a concerted effort to militarize the police and other government agencies and direct them towards the American people.

Of course, Operation Four Aces is not a martial law drill, nor is it a detention exercise. For those who are unaware, this event appears to be designed as merely yet another acclimation effort in order to train the American people – this time the citizens of Horry County – to accept SWAT teams, HAZMAT suits, and otherwise blatant police state procedures as the new normal.

Unfortunately, Horry County is only the latest in a string of acclimation exercises being conducted all over the country.

Mysterious Lethal Illness Strikes Cambodia

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 10, 2012

A mysterious illness responsible for the death of dozens of Cambodian children has remained unidentified since cases were first reported in April.

According to the World Health Organization and the Cambodian Health Ministry, the illness has taken the lives of 52 people and has sickened many others.

The disease is known to cause paralysis, brain swelling, neurological symptoms, severe respiratory distress leading to rapid shutdown, and death. In some cases, victims were described as having their lungs “burned.”

Most of the affected individuals were children under the age of 3.

Medical investigators are now suggesting that they may have identified the cause of the disease – the EV-71 virus – after conducting a series of lab tests on some of those stricken with the illness.

EV-71 (Enterovirus 71) is largely known for its ability to cause Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease (not to be confused with Foot and Mouth Disease which occurs in cattle and other animals). As Alexandra Sifferlin of TIME writes, Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease 

gets its name from a rash that appears on infected persons’ palms and soles (sometimes with blisters), along with painful, red, blister-like lesions on the tongue, gums and inside of the cheeks.
Early symptoms of hand, foot and mouth disease include fever, followed by sore throat and sometimes a poor appetite and malaise. One or two days after the fever begins, painful sores may develop in the mouth or throat, and rashes may then appear within one or two days after that. The usual incubation period – the time from infection to first symptoms – is about three to seven days.
It is also interesting to note that enteroviruses are of the same family as the polio virus. 
The symptoms prompting the hospitalization of the children with the disease are generally high fever, breathing difficulty, and encephalitis. Over a matter of a few hours, the conditions greatly worsen, with death occurring within only a matter of days. 

However, it is important to note that the evidence supporting the claims of enteroviruses as the cause of the mystery illness is rather scant. For instance, it is admitted that, in many cases, “relevant medical information may have been omitted and not all the children were tested before they died.”

In fact, samples were collected from only 24 people with just 15 of them coming back positive for EV-71. This should suggest that much more evidence is needed before claims that the EV-71 is the cause of the illness.

Dr. Nima Asgari, the leading WHO investigator, recently told the Associated Press that, to his knowledge, EV-71 has never been identified as a virus in Cambodia before. Thus, we must also begin to wonder – if EV-71 is the cause of the illness, why is it suddenly appearing in Cambodia now and why is it producing such devastating effects?

Because EV-71 is of the same family as the Polio virus, one must also wonder whether or not there is a correlation between EV-71 (if it is the cause of the illness in the first place) and recent polio vaccination programs ongoing in Cambodia.

Furthermore, the description regarding the sudden “burning” of the victims’ lungs bears an eerie similarity to the mystery “lung disintegration” virus which occurred in Eastern Europe and Norway only a few years ago. 

At this point, we simply do not know what is causing this new illness, or even if it something to be concerned about outside of Cambodia. After all, we can remember the Swine Flu propaganda that was pushed worldwide before it was finally revealed as a hoax designed to enrich major vaccine manufacturers.

Regardless, this new “mystery illness” will be something to keep an eye on as time progresses.

Katerina Jeleva Continues Legal Battle to Rescue Son From Child Protective Services

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 9, 2012

Back in May, I wrote an article entitled, “Utah Woman Has Son Stolen By DCFS Agent Despite Declaration of Innocence by Court and Social Services,” where I discussed the case of Katerina Jeleva, a Utah mother who has been victimized by an out-of-control Child Protective Services system. If you are new to this case, I encourage you to go to the article linked above in order to understand the background behind this update.

In short, when Katerina was served with a Protective Order by her ex-husband during the midst of a divorce proceeding, Katerina’s son was immediately taken from her by DCFS agents along with armed police. Yet, after repeated interviews and investigations by psychologists, sex abuse investigators, and other DCFS agents, it was determined that there was absolutely no evidence that Katerina had abused her son.

Soon after her son was returned to her, however, Katerina was served with yet another Protective Order by her ex-husband – this time with the help of rogue Guardian ad Litem, Amber Ruder. Once again, after the filing of the second Protective Order, Katerina’s son was forcibly removed from her, with police literally taking the child from his mother’s arms.

The process of interviews and investigations thus began anew and, again, Katerina was exonerated. Yet, after being ordered to organize and facilitate the family therapy sessions, Guardian ad Litem Amber Ruder has flatly refused to obey the judge’s orders, telling Katerina that she “cannot and will not do this for you.” Ruder has since been claiming that Katerina’s son may not be returned to her at all because the two have been separated for such a long time that it might traumatize the child to return to his mother.

Ever since the second Protective Order, Katerina has been fighting an uphill fight in what seems like a never-ending legal battle where she is forced to represent herself despite having very little time and money at her disposal. In addition, Katerina is having to contend with a Guardian ad Litem who is not only being uncooperative, but is actively sabotaging and opposing Katerina’s efforts to be reunited with her son.

Now, however, Katerina claims that even individuals within the court system have been playing a role in confounding her legal efforts. For instance, when a court issues an order, copies of the order go out in three different directions – the defense, the prosecution, and the court (which keeps a copy).

Yet, in Katerina’s case, only the court and the legal team of her ex-husband have been receiving the orders. Katerina claims that this is because the orders that should be going to her are being sent to the offices of the attorney she had hired some time ago but has subsequently ceased to obtain services from. But, since she is now representing herself and is no longer using this attorney’s services, the office doesn’t bother to contact her when they receive the orders.

Katerina says that, even though she has clearly stated to the court – presided over by Judge Sansbury (who handles hearings dealing with the Protective Orders) – that she was representing herself and that the new court orders should be delivered to her personal address, the documents are still being delivered to her previous attorney. Thus, she is in a constant state of surprise regarding her hearing dates, as she must either call or visit the offices of the court in order to find out whether or not a new court order has been filed.

You can hear Katerina discuss this aspect of her legal situation with Alan Watt of Cutting Through The Matrix on June 25, 2012 by clicking here.

Not only that, but Katerina also claims that the legal team of her ex-husband, consisting of his attorney Jere Reneer and the ever-present Amber Ruder (who is legally only supposed to represent the child), have become increasingly arrogant and dismissive not only of her rights, but also of the authority of the court.

The case regarding the petition to terminate parental rights which was filed by Reneer is a perfect example. Katerina states that, when the original petition came before Judge Mary T. Noonan, the judge in charge of custody hearings, Katerina’s ex-husband and Amber Ruder were told that they needed “clear and convincing evidence” in order for the petition to be accepted. According to Katerina, the judge stated clearly that this petition did not contain the requisite “clear and convincing evidence.”

So, Katerina says, Reneer filed for a “motion for leave to amend the petition.” This is simply a request for permission to be granted by the court to amend or update the petition already filed. This motion for leave was filed on March 1, 2012. However, on the very same day, Reneer filed an updated version of the petition with the court as well.

This is important because, if both the motion for leave to amend and the amended petition itself were filed on the same day, it shows that Reneer did not even wait for the permission of the court which is required before the petition can be amended. It would, indeed, show an alarming amount of arrogance on the part of this legal team – as they have obviously assumed that the permission would be granted. It also shows a brazen disregard for the legal process and authority of the court.

Regardless, Katerina states that this amended form of the petition contains even more embellished accusations and even less evidence than the original. She also states that it contains a new demand that, in the event that Katerina’s parental rights are not terminated, sole physical custody should be awarded to her ex-husband and that she would have to pay child support to him.

Obviously, these are ridiculous demands. Yet they were also reasserted by her ex-husband during the mediation period held on June 28, 2012. Katerina’s counter-proposal was the option of a co-parenting agreement (both parents being equal), no child support, and that the ex-husband must drop the allegations. Unfortunately, no agreement was made.

As a result, Katerina is now being forced to go on the offense and has indicated that she is now in the process of filing a lawsuit with the District Attorney’s Office of Utah, requesting a full investigation of her ex-husband for filing multiple false Protective Orders, a serious criminal charge. She is also filing a libel suit against him.

Katerina also states that the day after the mediation fell through, Amber Ruder filed a verbal motion with the court claiming that the original interview DCFS interview with Katerina’s son had been compromised and requesting that another interview take place, this time on camera. However, Judge Noonan rightly denied this motion.

Ruder has been truly persistent in the quest to separate Katerina and her son; and even though Ruder was given the responsibility to organize and facilitate therapy sessions for Katerina’s son and for sessions with the two together, Katerina claims Ruder is continuing her obstinate behavior by making the process as difficult and impractical as possible. Because Ruder is not fulfilling her court-ordered responsibility to facilitate these meetings, the work once again has fallen on Katerina to organize appointments with the agreed-upon therapist.

Yet, according to Katerina, even when the appointments are made and agreed upon, other parties back out at the last minute, or make the process much more difficult than it should be.

In the end, when the other parties (like her ex-husband) do not show up to appointments, Ruder replies simply by stating “too bad,” as if it were Katerina’s responsibility to ensure that her ex-husband, who would gain nothing by cooperating with her, show up for the appointments.

This has left Katerina with very little choice but to file a claim against Ruder in the 4th District Juvenile Court of Utah, requesting that Ruder be replaced with another Guardian ad Litem. Katerina is citing “incompetence, prejudice, and negligence and otherwise inappropriate behavior” as her reasons for this request.

Indeed, according to Katerina’s filing, Ruder has been removed and replaced as Guardian ad Litem in another case for similar reasons.

One bit of positive news, however, is that Katerina has finally been able to have the first joint therapy session with her son after a marathon of stalling attempts by her ex-husband and Amber Ruder. Indeed, from Katerina’s report regarding the session, one might see why Ruder has been attempting to sabotage the process at every step.

According to Katerina, the session could scarcely have gone better, with her son overwhelmed with excitement and joy at the opportunity to finally see his mother after eight months of separation. Katerina describes her son as being “all giggles and smiles” and “beaming” as they tried to catch up on what they had missed during their time apart. At the end of the session, Katerina says that he ran up to her, hugged and kissed her, and told her that he loved her. Overall, the session was a success.

Indeed, it seems clear that the only “trauma” suffered by the child was that caused by Amber Ruder, Katerina’s ex-husband, and the CPS-style system itself. It is also clear that, after false accusations have been made on two occasions, Katerina has been broken financially, and her son is being robbed of any modicum of a healthy childhood largely due to a rogue power-tripping government agent, someone must be held accountable.

But let’s not start holding our breath just yet.

This is because, according to Katerina, the current Protective Order has been extended four times since November 2011 and remains in place until September 31, 2012. Thus there is the very real danger of an attempt to extend the Protective Order yet again on the part of Amber Ruder and the ex-husband, which would only lengthen the time that Katerina and her son are forced to spend apart.

With this in mind, I have included contact information for Amber Ruder in case any readers would like to contact her and explain to her why she should give up on her attempts to separate a son from his mother or, in addition, simply resign from her position before she destroys anyone else’s life.

I have also included the contact information for Amber Ruder’s boss, Rick Smith, the Director of the Office of Guardian Ad Litem of Utah if any readers would like to contact him and request that he investigate the behavior of Amber Ruder.

Also included in this article is the contact information for Judge Mary T. Noonan, the judge in charge of the custody hearings.

Media PSYOP to Justify NATO Invasion? 'Crimes Against Humanity' Cited in Report on Syria's Torture Network

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post
July 3, 2012

In what appears to be the latest effort by NATO forces to justify a military invasion of Syria, George Soros-funded Human Rights Watch is now reporting that the Assad regime is overseeing a vast network of torture centers all across the country.

Human Rights Watch (HRW) claims it has identified 27 locations that Syrian intelligence agencies have been using ever since March 2011 when “Bashar al-Assad’s government began a crackdown on pro-democracy protests that have grown into an armed revolt.” 

The group claims that tens of thousands of people have been captured and detained by the Syrian Air Force Intelligence Directorate, General Intelligence Directorate, Political Security Directorate, and the Department of Military Intelligence. 

Human Rights Watch reports that it has gained this information by conducting over 200 interviews with individuals who claim to have been tortured. One of these individuals, a 31 year-old man who was allegedly detained in the Idlib area in June, states that he was forced to undress.

According to a Reuters report, he then recounts his alleged experience by stating,

Then they started squeezing my fingers with pliers. They put staples in my fingers, chest and ears. I was only allowed to take them out if I spoke. The staples in the ears were the most painful.
They used two wires hooked up to a car battery to give me electric shocks. They used electric stun-guns on my genitals twice. I thought I would never see my family again. They tortured me like this three times over three days.
The United Nations human rights investigators are also getting in on the public relations act by stated that they, too, have been witnessed extensive torture programs. 

Rupert Colville, U.N. human rights spokesman, stated in a news briefing in Geneva on Tuesday that “Torture is one of the most extensively and best documented of the many awful human rights violations taking place in Syria over the past 15 months.”

Human Rights Watch has stated explicitly that, due to the methods of torture it has documented, the acts “clearly point to a state policy of torture and ill-treatment and therefore constitutes a crime against humanity.”

Acting in lockstep, and repeating the same statements almost verbatim, the U.N. human rights spokesman also stated that there has been “a constant stream of very consistent information about widespread systematic use of torture, and of course if it is widespread and systematic, that amounts to a crime against humanity.”

Of the methods of torture being reported by the U.N. mission and Human Rights Watch are “beatings, electric shocks, cigarette burns, mock executions, and sleep deprivation.”

So with this new report, it appears that the new line against Syria and Bashar al-Assad will be that the country is engaging in widespread torture and crimes against humanity.

Of course, whether or not Syria is engaging in the torture of death squad suspects is open to question. It is certainly possible. Yet, considering the source of information, it is equally possible that the entire set of claims is nothing more than NATO propaganda. Keep in mind, elaborate media PYSOPS regarding Syria and Assad have been in the works for some time. 

Thus, it must be made clear that the description of the Syrian “rebels” as “pro-democracy protestors” which grew into an armed revolt is itself a clear and complete fabrication. The “rebels” are violent terrorists and have always been violent terrorists. The rebels have been armed from the very beginning and have engaged in indiscriminate killings long before any crackdown by Assad.

A report that characterizes the “rebels” as anything but NATO-backed death squads should be immediately looked upon with heavy skepticism. Indeed, such a claim should do catastrophic damage to the report’s credibility and should likely be dismissed as disinformation.

Regardless, look for the term “Crimes Against Humanity” to be repeated ad nauseum in the mainstream media over the course of the next few weeks as a push for increased public support for military action in Syria intensifies. 

The most ironic, hypocritical, and Orwellian aspect of this report, however, is the fact that Syria and Assad are being targeted as having committed “crimes against humanity” for allegedly doing the very things that the United States is admittedly doing in places like Guantanamo BayBagram Air Force Base, and numerous black sites all across the world. Indeed, the United States government has even claimed the right to imprisontorture, and kill American citizens at its own discretion. 

So does this mean that Barack Obama is guilty of “crimes against humanity?” 

Something tells me I shouldn’t hold my breath for the human rights campaign.
