Remember they were ONLY for ‘The Borders’…
Didnt take long either. Next they will be armed… guaranteed.
It is sad that we have to get REAL news about OUR OWN COUNTRY from Foreign Media Outlets…
If you think it was an accident… watch this.
Freedom of Speech? Freedom to Assemble?
This looks like some shit out of a third world country!
This is the quote from Obama after Gaddafis killing…
“… the Gaddafi regime ruled the Libyan people with an iron fist. Basic human rights were denied. Innocent civilians were detained, beaten and killed. And Libya’s wealth was squandered. The enormous potential of the Libyan people was held back, and terror was used as a political weapon.”
Ok… now replace Gaddafi regime with BANKERS and Libya with AMERICA(N)(S)(N)… Get it Now? Pot calling the Kettle Black?
A record-high number of Americans say they are dissatisfied with the way the nation is being governed, a new poll says.
An overwhelming majority of respondents, 81 percent, said that they are not satisfied with the governance of the country, compared with 19 percent who are satisfied, according to Gallup.
Sheesh… I had lost hope for a while…
Get ready for a False Flag to reunite the Sheep..
Nearly half of the approximately $300 billion of taxpayer money the Department of Defense spent on projects in 2010 was awarded for no-bid contracts — some of which weren’t necessary, the Center for Public Integrity’s iWatch News reported on Monday.
The cost of the non-competitive contracts the U.S. military has tripled in the last 10 years, now tallying up to $140 billion of taxpayer money per year on quick solution defense spending. ***READ MORE***

U.S. federal agents allegedly allowed the Sinaloa drug cartel to traffic several tons of cocaine into the United States in exchange for information about rival cartels, according to court documents filed in a U.S. federal court.
The allegations are part of the defense of Vicente Zambada-Niebla, who was extradited to the United States to face drug-trafficking charges in Chicago. He is also a top lieutenant of drug kingpin Joaquin “Chapo” Guzman and the son of Ismael “Mayo” Zambada-Garcia, believed to be the brains behind the Sinaloa cartel.
The case could prove to be a bombshell on par with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives’ “Operation Fast and Furious,” except that instead of U.S. guns being allowed to walk across the border, the Sinaloa cartel was allowed to bring drugs into the United States. Zambada-Niebla claims he was permitted to smuggle drugs from 2004 until his arrest in 2009.
Randall Samborn, assistant U.S. attorney and spokesman for the Justice Department in Chicago, declined comment. ***READ MORE***
How’s that for your ‘Drug War’?
The federal government has supplied local police departments with military uniforms, weaponry, vehicles, and training.
Just after midnight on May 16, 2010, a SWAT team threw a flash-bang grenade through the window of a 25-year-old man while his 7-year-old daughter slept on the couch as her grandmother watched television. The grenade landed so close to the child that it burned her blanket. The SWAT team leader then burst into the house and fired a single shot which struck the child in the throat, killing her. The police were there to apprehend a man suspected of murdering a teenage boy days earlier. The man they were after lived in the unit above the girl’s family.
The shooting death of Aiyana Mo’Nay Stanley-Jones sounds like it happened in a war zone. But the tragic SWAT team raid took place in Detroit.
Shockingly, paramilitary raids that mirror the tactics of US soldiers in combat are not uncommon in America. According to an investigation carried out by the Huffington Post’s Radley Balko, America has seen a disturbing militarization of its civilian law enforcement over the last 30 years, along with a dramatic and unsettling rise in the use of paramilitary police units for routine police work. In fact, the most common use of SWAT teams today is to serve narcotics warrants, usually with forced, unannounced entry into the home.
Some 40,000 of these raids take place every year, and are needlessly subjecting nonviolent drug offenders, bystanders and wrongly targeted civilians to the terror of having their homes invaded while they’re sleeping, usually by teams of heavily armed paramilitary units dressed not as police officers but as soldiers. And as demonstrated by the case of Aiyana Mo’nay Stanley-Jones, these raids have resulted in dozens of needless deaths and injuries.
How did we allow our law enforcement apparatus to descend into militaristic chaos? ***READ MORE***
Did you know that the United States military is now bombing 6 different countries? U.S. aircraft are conducting air strikes in Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Libya, Yemen and now Somalia. There is a U.S. military base in over half of the countries on the planet and U.S. military spending is over 7 times larger than the military spending of any other nation on earth. Yes, the United States will always need a strong military. But with our national debt exploding at an exponential rate, can the United States really afford to continue to be the police of the world?
There are always going to be nutjobs in other countries that want to destroy the United States. In fact, the more we bomb the more they seem to multiply. The federal government seems obsessed with stamping out all terrorists wherever they may be found around the globe. But how will we ever know if we have gotten all of them? Does our government intend to occupy all of the countries of the Middle East eventually? Do we really have to police the entire globe in order to feel secure at home?
Trying to be the police of the world is getting awfully expensive. We have run up almost 4 trillion dollars more debt since Barack Obama was elected. Many thought that Barack Obama would reduce our foreign entanglements, but instead he has greatly expanded them.
In an article posted on a major UK news source describing the new U.S. airstrikes in Somalia, Declan Walsh noted that this is now the 6th country that the U.S. military is bombing on a regular basis….
Armed Predator and Reaper drones already operate in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen and Libya, where they are controlled by the US military or the CIA.
So are all of these airstrikes winning any “hearts and minds”?
Only 3 percent of the population of Pakistan supports our drone strikes in that country.
What we are doing is not working.
Perhaps it is time to fundamentally reassess our foreign policy.
Barack Obama seems to have gotten a real taste for using the military. He didn’t even bother to ask Congress when we started bombing Libya, and now there are persistent rumors that U.S. ground forces may soon be involved.
In fact, high ranking Russian diplomat Dmitry Rogozin says that he is convinced that NATO is beginning preparations for a ground invasion of Libya….
“I think that now we are witnessing the preparation stage of a ground operation which NATO, or at least some of its members… are ready to begin”
But Libya is not the only place that U.S. troops may be sent to.
The way that Obama administration officials are talking, war with Syria could potentially be on the horizon.
Things are getting really crazy out there. The U.S. government is absolutely drowning in debt and yet we think that we can push around everyone else in the world.
This even extends to nations that are supposed to be our allies. According to the Jerusalem Post, Barack Obama has given Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu a one month ultimatum to agree to resume peace talks with the Palestinians based on pre-1967 borders.
The U.S. government doesn’t even try to do much diplomacy in the Middle East anymore. It seems like threats, ultimatums and bombings are the preferred tools.
The rest of the world is going to remember our arrogance and our ruthlessness. When the United States needs help someday, the rest of the world might not be very inclined to give it.
Right now, the U.S. government is essentially bankrupt and the U.S. financial system is on the verge of the collapse. We have got to stop spending so much money.
The following are 16 reasons why the United States can no longer afford to be the police of the world….
#1 Prior to the beginning of the “War on Terror” our national debt was under 6 trillion dollars. Today, it has more than doubled and currently sits at a whopping 14.3 trillion dollars.
#2 Today, the U.S. military is in nearly 130 different nations and it has a total of about 700 military bases around the globe. It costs approximately 100 billion dollars each year to maintain these military bases.
#3 U.S. military spending is greater than the military spending of China, Russia, Japan, India, and the rest of NATO combined.
#4 The United States already accounts for 46.5% of all military spending on the planet. China is next with only 6.6%.
#5 If Bill Gates gave every penny of his fortune to the U.S. government, it would only cover the U.S. budget deficit for 15 days.
#6 When you throw in all “off budget” items and other categories of “defense spending” not covered in the Pentagon budget you get a grand total of somewhere between $1.01 and $1.35 trillion spent on national defense in 2010.
#7 The U.S. government borrows an average of about 168 million more dollars every single hour.
#8 The Pentagon currently gobbles up 56 percent of all discretionary spending by the federal government.
#9 Between 2007 and 2010, U.S. GDP grew by only 4.26%, but the U.S. national debt soared by 61% during that same time period.
#10 The cost for the first week of airstrikes on Libya was 600 million dollars. Keep in mind that the leader of the opposition in Libya has admitted that his forces contain large numbers of the same “al-Qaeda fighters” that were shooting at American troops in Iraq. So we are going broke and we are helping al-Qaeda take power in Libya at the same time.
#11 The total price tag for each F-22 fighter jet is approximately $350 million.
#12 Over the past decade, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have cost U.S. taxpayers well over a trillion dollars.
#13 If you went out today and started spending one dollar every single second, it would take you over 31,000 years to spend one trillion dollars.
#14 Since 2001, the total cost of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan breaks down to well over $3,600 for every man, woman and child in the United States.
#15 Just one day of the war in Afghanistan costs more money than it took to build the entire Pentagon.
#16 The United States government is now responsible for more than a third of all the government debt in the entire world.
The U.S. national debt is escalating out of control and all of these wars are not helping one bit.
Occupying and bombing all of these nations is not even making us safer. In fact, it is creating more enemies than it is destroying.
In addition, our military is now spread so incredibly thin that there are real questions about our ability to respond if a major threat did actually arise.
If you support our troops, then you should want the U.S. government to stop trying to police the world. We are getting a lot of young men and women hurt and killed and we are accomplishing a whole lot of nothing.
At the same time we are bombing nations all over the globe, Barack Obama is absolutely gutting our strategic nuclear arsenal and has made us far more vulnerable to real threats such as Russia and China.
It is almost as if our government is cursed. It just cannot seem to do anything right these days. Virtually everything that either George W. Bush or Barack Obama has tried to do has been an utter failure.
Look, I am pro-military. My father was in the military. The United States will always need a very strong military.
But trying to police the world is stupid. Occupying and bombing countries all over the Middle East is a massive strategic mistake and it is creating a lot of new enemies.
Plus all of this military spending is contributing significantly to our national debt nightmare.
If someone can explain why I am wrong I would love to hear it….
I never really paid too much attention to this guy but I am now a Fan.
We need to support ‘artist’ who are outspoken on the truth..
NOT all Obama Cheerleaders (Will.I.am, Jamie Fox, Beyonce, Common, etc.)

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration has intensified the American covert war in Yemen, exploiting a growing power vacuum in the country to strike at militant suspects with armed drones and fighter jets, according to American officials.
The acceleration of the American campaign in recent weeks comes amid a violent conflict in Yemen that has left the government in Sana, a United States ally, struggling to cling to power. Yemeni troops that had been battling militants linked to Al Qaeda in the south have been pulled back to the capital, and American officials see the strikes as one of the few options to keep the militants from consolidating power. ***READ MORE***
“…Qaeda operatives have mingled with other rebels and antigovernment militants, making it harder for the United States to attack without the appearance of picking sides.”
As the late Aaron Russo said… it will be a never ending war.
