In this explosive interview, Alex talks to Tucker Carlson, the founder and editor-in-chief of The Daily Caller, on a multitude of topics concerning the current state of affairs both abroad and domestically.

Alex provides Carlson a hard-hitting crash course on the lies surrounding 9/11, covering everything from the stand-down of NORAD, the eyewitness accounts that run contrary to the official story and the bevy of evidence surrounding the implosion of Building 7:

Alex and Carlson also dive into the importance of the Second Amendment, Obama’s dictatorial power grab, the death of the mainstream media and the rising tide of libertarianism, as you can see with the complete interview here:

America has been seized by an executive dictatorship

History has witnessed almost every kind of dictatorship imaginable, but what Americans are facing in the 21st century is a form of totalitarianism so pernicious that it is able to camouflage its unified agenda behind a veil of contrived partisan politics that tricks people into believing they have choice and freedom, when in reality the entire country and the office of president has been seized by a cabal of corporate looters.

This cabal manufactured Brand Obama just as they will manufacture future presidents as mere figureheads for Totalitarianism 2.0 – a new form of tyranny which places large corporations and military-industrial complex titans above the law with diplomatic immunity, while exploiting the office of president to achieve a fusion of corporate and state dictatorship via executive fiat.

“The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extensive shifts in policy.” Georgetown University Professor Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope.

The office of president is now merely a rubber stamp for the machinations of a global elite that rule the world through secret societies, private organizations, think tanks and huge transnational corporations, all of which combine to form the “military-industrial complex” and the “technological elite” that Eisenhower warned Americans about in his farewell speech over 50 years ago, the same special interests Barry Goldwater outed during his presidential campaign.

“The Trilateralist Commission is international…(and)…is intended to be the vehicle for multinational consolidation of the commercial and banking interests by seizing control of the political government of the United States. The Trilateralist Commission represents a skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers of power – political, monetary, intellectual, and ecclesiastical.” Barry Goldwater.

These special interests could not have successfully consolidated executive power without the aid of the mainstream media in covering it all up, keeping Americans distracted, deluded and decadent, as arch-elitists like David Rockefeller set about their business.

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years….It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supernational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination practiced in past centuries.” David Rockefeller.

Rockefeller himself even bragged that he was “guilty” and “proud” of being part of “a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States” in his own book.

“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure–one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” David Rockefeller, Memoirs.

Easily the most impressive marketing campaign in the history of mankind, enthusiastically sold by the corporate media which Rockefeller thanked, was the manufacturing of Brand Obama. While Obama, a constitutional law scholar, vowed to reverse the constitutional train wreck that was the Bush administration and restore America’s global image, the cabal who put him in office planned to use that cloak of empty promises to achieve the exact opposite.

As Jon Pilger warned shortly after Obama was elected, “President Obama does one thing and brand Obama gets you to believe another. This is the essence of successful advertising. You buy or do what the advertiser wants because of how they make you feel…. and so you are kept in a perpetual state of childishness.”

This “perpetual state of childishness” still dominates many on the political left nearly five years after Obama took office. Millions of Americans remain under the delusion that Obama is fighting against an obstructionist Congress as he tries in vain to fix the country. In reality, the media has invented the myth of an obstructionist Congress in an effort to justify and legitimize Obama’s dictatorial crusade against the Constitution as he continues to enrich the executive branch with unbridled power.

 

Examples of how totalitarianism 2.0 has been expanded under Obama are innumerable.

– After failing to pass gun control measures via Congress, Obama has vowed to savage the 2nd Amendment through executive orders as part of an end run around the right to keep and bear arms. This agenda stems from a March 2011 White House meeting when Obama promisedto launch a sneak attack against the 2nd Amendment “under the radar”.

– The Obama administration, as part of its pursuit to “bankrupt” the coal industry, has used the EPA to shut down coal-fired plants across the country, driving up prices for consumers and increasing America’s dependence on foreign oil. This assault on the free market has been achieved via arbitrary and extra-legal “regulations” invented by the EPA in the name of halting global warming, which is a completely fraudulent hoax. However, Obama has provided his corporate backers like General Electric with waivers so that they are exempt from the regulations.

“The great concern I have for this body [Congress] is that it is not only being circumvented, but it is also being denied the ability to enforce its inherent powers. … [T]he president is outside the line, but it has to go before a court, and a court has to grant review, and that’s where we have the most serious constitutional crisis I have viewed in my lifetime. And that is, this body is becoming less and less relevant.” George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley.

– After passing the Affordable Care Act, Obama moved to selectively enforce provisions of the law completely outside the purview of Congress, a totally unconstitutional move that sets the precedent of rendering Congress virtually irrelevant.

“If the people come to believe that the government is no longer constrained by the laws then they will conclude that neither are they.” Michael Cannon, Cato Institute.

– After Congress rejected the DREAM Act, Obama moved to allow illegal immigrants brought into the United States by their parents to be exempt from law enforcement actions, a power grab characterized by Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) as an “unprecedented level” of executive fiat.

“Congress had a chance to provide a path to citizenship for children and they refused to do so. So Congress refused to act and the president substitutes his judgment for Congress’s and does by executive fiat what the legislative branch refused to do.” Rep. Trey Gowdy.

– Obama has brazenly undermined the power of Congress by insisting his authority came from the United Nations Security Council prior to the attack on Libya and that Congressional approval was not necessary. “I don’t even have to get to the Constitutional question,” said Obama. This is an act that “constitutes an impeachable high crime and misdemeanor under article II, section 4 of the Constitution,” according to Congressman Walter Jones.

– Obama ignored Congressional rejection of the cybersecurity bill and instead indicated he will pursue an unconstitutional executive order.

– Obama signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act which includes provisions that permit the abduction and military detention without trial of U.S. citizens, violating Habeas Corpus. Despite Obama claiming he would not use the provisions to incarcerate U.S. citizens, it was his administration that specifically demanded these powers be included in the final NDAA bill.

“This is precisely the kind of egregious distortion of justice that Americans have always ridiculed in so many dictatorships overseas. A great man named Solzhenitsyn became the hero of so many of us when he exposed the Soviet Union’s extensive gulag system. Is this really the kind of United States we want to create in the name of fighting terrorism?” Congressman Ron Paul.

 

– Obama violated Article II of the Constitution by using signing statements as part of his executive usurpation of power.

“The danger is quite severe. The problem with what the president is doing is that he’s not simply posing a danger to the constitutional system. He’s becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid. That is the concentration of power in every single branch.” Jonathan Turley.

– Obama violated the Constitution’s Takings and Due Process Clauses when he bullied the secured creditors of automaker Chrysler into accepting 30 cents on the dollar while politically connected labor unions and preferential others received better deals.

– Obama has violated federal law by overseeing a cover-up surrounding Operation Fast and Furious, the transfer of guns to Mexican drug cartels direct from the federal government.

– Obama has aided America’s enemies, violating his oath, by sending funds to insurgents in Syria who are being commanded by Al-Qaeda terrorists.

This isn’t a partisan issue, it isn’t a matter of left versus right. This is about how the office of president itself has been seized by corporate interests who have wrecked the Constitution while the figure of president himself has been replaced by nothing more than a teleprompter reading sock puppet.

Only by embracing the true understanding of the fact that the government is completely illegitimate and withdrawing our consent en masse can we as Americans successfully put the country back on the right course and turn the cabal that currently rules the nation into a relic of history to be reviled in the same context as the onerous totalitarian systems of decades and centuries beforehand.

PrivateSky developers speak out after being issued national security warrant

Steve Watson
Infowars.com
December 12, 2013

GCHQ, the British counterpart and facilitator to the NSA, has forced a privacy focused email service to shut down because it could not effectively spy on the encrypted emails people were sending.

As the blog IT Security Guru reports, a beta version of the PrivateSky service from London-based web security firm CertiVox was shut down early in 2013 following a government order.

The secure email encryption service, which worked with both web based email and Outlook, had “tens of thousands of heavily active users” before it was targeted by government spooks, according to the developers.

Brian Spector, CEO of CertiVox, tells reporters “Towards the end of 2012, we heard from the National Technical Assistance Centre (NTAC), a division of GCHQ and a liaison with the Home Office, [that] they wanted the keys to decrypt the customer data.”

“So they had persons of interest they wanted to track and came with a RIPA warrant signed by the home secretary. You have to comply with a RIPA warrant or you go to jail.” Spector adds.

“It is the same in the USA with FISMA, and it is essentially a national security warrant.” Spector further notes.

Because the PrivateSky system works by splitting the root key between the company and the user, CertiVox was simply unable to wholly fulfil the government demand to hand over the data.

“So as far as I know we are the first to do that so if the NSA or GCHQ says ‘hand it over’… they cannot do anything with it until they have the other half, where the customer has control of it.” Spector notes.

The CEO also says that his company could only have continued to offer the secure email system by allowing government spies to have backdoor access to it – completely defeating the point of PrivateSky.

“So in late 2012 we had the choice to make – either architect the world’s most secure encryption system on the planet, so secure that CertiVox cannot see your data, or spend £500,000 building a backdoor into the system to mainline data to GCHQ so they can mainline it over to the NSA.” Spector notes.

“It would be anti-ethical to the values and message we are selling our customers in the first place.” he adds calling it a “catastrophic invasion of privacy” of users.

“It was all too heavy, and all too cloak and dagger for what we wanted to do, and the worst thing was we could have built a backdoor in but we are selling out our customers and the security of the service.”

“We are business people but we believe in privacy, internet freedom and responsible government.” he adds.

Clearly in the same position, Google, Yahoo and Microsoft are not going to shut down their email services, and hence, have likely complied, to varying degrees, with the NSA and its partners.

Earlier in the year, two otehr secure email services, Lavabit and Silent Circle, were also forced to shut down their encryption services. Lavabit was suspended by the government because it was the service that NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden was using.

Lavabit owner Ladar Levison said that he refused to be complicit in “crimes against the American people”, rejecting a court order demanding that the company work with the NSA, allowing it to spy on its customers’ communications data.

Silent Circle followed suit, with a spokesperson stating that while it had not yet received an order from the NSA, “the writing is on the wall”.

Referring to the PrivateSky service, CertiVox CEO Spector adds “We did it before Lavabit and Silent Circle and it was before Snowden happened.”

While clearly dismayed with the situation, Spector explains why he shut down PrivateSky: “…you don’t have any recourse on it or [means to] let the subject know that you have been approached to monitor their communications, as that is also against the law.”

“Whether or not you agree or disagree with the UK and US government, this is how it is and you have to comply with it,” he concludes.

Meanwhile, in a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday, General Keith Alexander said that there is “no other way” to protect Americans than to collect billions of phone and internet records.

“There is no other way that we know of to connect the dots. … Taking these programs off the table is absolutely not the thing to do.” Alexander told the committee’s chairman, Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy.

Seattle head coach Pete Carroll hosted a retired four-star general at the Seahawks facility last spring and blitzed him with questions about whether the 9/11 attacks “had been planned or faked” by the government, according to Deadspin.com.

Decorated general Peter Chiarelli, who had just called it a career, was discussing football andbrain injuries with Carroll before the conversation took a turn, Deadspin reported.

“Every 9/11 conspiracy theory you can think of, Pete asked about,” former NFL linebacker Riki Ellison told Deadspin.

Former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds has been deemed credible by the Department of Justice’s Inspector General, several senators (free subscription required), and a coalition of prominent conservative and liberal groups.

The ACLU described Edmonds as:

The most gagged person in the history of the United States of America.

And famed Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg says that Edmonds possesses information “far more explosive than the Pentagon Papers”.

Edmonds translated terror-related communications for the FBI right after 9/11. In that capacity, she read communications between terrorists and other radicals.

Edmonds said last week that Bin Laden – and his number 2 Al Qaeda lieutenant – Ayman al-Zawahiri – worked with the U.S. government for 3 months after 9/11 to coordinate destablization in the Caucus region:

By way of background, the former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligence admit that NATO, with the help of the Pentagon and CIA, carried out terror bombings in Italy and other European countries in the 1950s and blamed the communists, in order to rally people’s support for their governments in Europe in their fight against communism.

As one participant in this formerly-secret program stated: “You had to attack civilians, people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security” (and see this)(Italy and other European countries subject to the terror campaign had joined NATO before the bombings occurred).

This was codenamed “Operation Gladio”. And watch this BBC special. And see this for background.

Edmonds says that some portions of Operation Gladio are continuing to this day, and that Ayman al-Zawahiri and Bin Laden worked for NATO and the Pentagon as part of Operation Gladio:

Edmonds told us:

For the past 11 years I have been emphasizing that my State Secrets Privilege & Gag Orders had to do with the FBI files (covering period 1996-2002 February) on covert-terrorist operations in Caucasus and Central Asia backed, managed and armed by US actorsThese US-NATO directed operations in the region involved Bin-Laden and mainly Zawahiri …..

The FBI documents contained damning evidence (audio and written) collected between 1996-2002 tying these terror operations directly to the U.S. persons in the State Department/CIA and Pentagon. Also, how the State Department got Congress to grant huge amounts of funds to “front’ NGOs and businesses (mainly Turkish companies in US-listed/members of ATC) to funnel money to the terrorist cells in this region.

If this sounds crazy, please remember that the former U.S. National Security Adviser (and a top Obama foreign policy adviser) admitted that the U.S. created, organized and armed the Mujahadeen in Afghanistan – including Bin Laden – to fight the Soviets.  (The Mujahadeen eventually morphed into Al Qaeda.)

And the same National Security Adviser wrote a book in 1997 saying that the Caucasus and Central Asian regions – the same 2 regions which Edmonds told us that NATO and the U.S. deployed Zawahiri and Bin-Laden to influence – were the key to geopolitical power.  For example, he wrote:

  • The Eurasian Balkans include nine countries that one way or another fit the foregoing description [of regions vital for the U.S. to control] (p.124)
  • “[The Central Asian Republics] are of importance from the standpoint of security and historical ambitions to at least three of their most immediate and more powerful neighbors, namely Russia, Turkey and Iran, with China also signaling an increasing political interest in the region. But the Eurasian Balkans are infinitely more important as a potential economic prize: an enormous concentration of natural gas and oil reserves is located in the region, in addition to important minerals, including gold.” (p.124)
  • “Ever since the continents started interacting politically, some five hundred years ago, Eurasia has been the center of world power.”- (p. xiii)
  • “It is imperative that no Eurasian challenger emerges, capable of dominating Eurasia and thus of also challenging America. The formulation of a comprehensive and integrated Eurasian geostrategy is therefore the purpose of this book.” (p. xiv)

And the U.S. has backed the most dangerous and radical Muslim terrorists for decades.

And the mainstream French paper Le Figaro alleged that the CIA met with Bin Laden 2 months before 9/11.

And 9/11 Commissioners admit that they never got to the bottom of 9/11. For example:

THE SPECIFIC INDICTMENT of  Bush Jr/Obama/CIA/US Military “Torture of 9/11 Prisoners” at GITMO—FINALLY CONFIRMED as a “WAR CRIME”— Equivalent to Prosecuted Nazi War Crimes and the Torture/ Internship Of Japanese Americans During WWII.

  Nothing beats a sensational front page news story like a Boston Marathon Massacre!  Most readers would miss the incidental but far more serious implication for the moral compass of America than the  NY Times story by Scott Shane, entitled, “U.S. Practiced Torture After 9/11,  Non Partisan Review Concludes”. (posted earlier)
  In this article, both Asa Hutchinson [Republican/Bush Jr Administration] and James R. Jones [Democrat, Congress] indict the interrogation and tortures committed by Presidents Clinton [Rendition], Bush Jr [full menu of tortures], Obama [Bush Jr in Black Face].
In essence,  this bipartisan report,  along with 6,000 pages of still classified docs  IMPLICATES THREE ADMINISTRATIONS of INTERNATIONAL WAR CRIMES—RENDITION, TORTURE, ENHANCED INTERROGATION.
  What does this mean in the midst of our frenzy to find ‘supposed terrorists’ of the Boston Marathon Massacre?
It means that, as I have previously repeated time and time again, we have had and still have Presidents who have willingly committed acts of International War Crimes Punishable by Death and / or Life Imprisonment.
Furthermore, to make matters even worse, the extensive investigations showed that the abominable, criminal activities of interrogation, torture, water boarding committed by the CIA, US military, US mercenaries and sanctioned by three presidents were like the wars themselves- totally useless.
In short, the USA is GUILTY of COMMITTING USELESS WAR CRIMES!!!
Have I, an experienced counter –terrorist expert with thirty years experience who had never had to touch even one detainee,  let alone torture or ‘interrogate’ anyone, suddenly had a fit of righteous indignation or just decided to vent his RELENTLESS FURY for UNREPENTANT SINS of our THREE PRESIDENTS and their MINIONS?
The answer lies not in the headlines nor in the hysterical media distractions of a tragic occurrence which I might have been able to predict (I think Patriarch did predict this),  had I known beforehand that this report would come out on the same day as the BOSTON MARATHON.
  That’s right! You’ve got it! Once again, Obama in concert with FEMA, CIA, FBI, and other National Security minions—the usual ‘choir boy suspects’—decided to OFFER A DISTRACTION.
  Bloody! Macabre! Inane!! Insensitive!
  But please place this Boston Marathon along side the sacrifices that Bush jr was willing to make in terms of dead American bodies in 9/11—close to 3,000 innocent Americans in the World Trade Center alone.   The Boston Marathon Massacre is small potatoes in the theater of distractions for war crimes.
  A decade ago,  Bush Jr had no qualms, of course along with his close pal Cheney, of sacrificing a few thousand US military men in the useless Iraq War.  Don’t forget the hundreds of thousands of innocent Pakistanis, Yemenis, Afghanis, and Iraqis that Obama, Panetta, Tenet, Hayden, Brennan et al, are willing to sacrifice in the name of ‘terror’ or, excuse me, the ‘war on terror’. 
BTTSo what’s a few Americans who were killed and injured in the Marathon Race?  Nothing, really,  in comparison to the full scope of the extent of the horror that Clinton, Bush jr  and Obama collectively had engaged in maiming the innocent; torturing the prisoners;  injuring and killing the countless thousands of innocent civilians; destroying societies and countries; and creating world wide MAYHEM and CHAOS—all for the sake of NATIONAL SECURITY??
Let me be more precise and list some of the issues that are relevant to the ‘torture’, ‘interrogation’ and ‘the legal consequences’ of those actions over a thirty year period since the Clinton Administration.
  But first let’s go back, a bit further to WWII.
–A Japanese General was summarily executed by the US allies for waterboarding pilots who had been caught in the Jimmy DoLittle Raid on Tokyo.
— US Army soldiers during the Vietnam War summarily placed in prison for waterboarding Viet Cong prisoners of war.
–In 1948,  Norwegians executed German SS officers practicing ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ called ‘Versharfte Vernehmung’ developed by Gestapo Chief Heinrich Muller, using ‘sleep deprivation’, ‘extreme cold’, ‘suspension in stress positions’ and ‘deliberate exhaustion’.
 –Navy Captain Albert Shimkus Jr, who ran a hospital for the prisoners at Gitmo protested the unethical behavior.
— Bill Clinton, Sandy Berger approved rendition.
–Bush jr, Rumsfeld, Cheney, Condi, Steve Hadley, Elliot Abrams, Gen. David Petraeus, Jose Rodriguez [head of CIA Covert operations], John Brennan, David Addington [WH staff],  all approved the use of severe interrogation methods including hypothermia, waterboarding, stress positions, abdominal beatings, genital torture, and other bodily and psychological harm according to Department of Justice Concurrence of Attorney General John Ashcroft as written in the paper by John Yoo.  Also concurring to these aforementioned methods were NSA Director General Michael Hayden, SecState Collin Powell, and DCI George Tenet .
–The only official to dissent officially and was subsequently reprimanded was Philip Zelikow, PhD who wrote a memo contesting the DOJ’s Torture Memo written by John Yoo  and others in “Justice”.
— Karl Rove told BBC in 2010: ”I’m proud that we kept the world safer than it was, by the use of these techniques. They’re appropriate, they’re in conformity with our international requirements and with US law”. 
–Cheney: ” I was and remain a strong proponent of our enhanced interrogation program.”
–Congresswoman, later Speaker of the House,  Nancy Pelosi [D, Cal. San Francisco] in a meeting with the CIA/Bush Jr Administration—WHOLEHEARTEDLY SUPPORTED ENHANCED INTERROGATION AND TORTURE!
There goes our in-house LIBERAL—ALL THE WAY WITH TORTURE, PRINCESS NANCY! What happened to the infamous University of Berkley WAR PROTESTORS-IT’S ONE OF YOUR OWN !!! And what about your Pacific Heights Liberal Constituents?  Do they know that you are true blue SADIST and WAR CRIMINAL?
–But Congresswoman Jane Harmon also from California and a Democratic Liberal had the guts to dissent and object. But she was in the minority.
 –James Steele, in charge of the US Death Squads [Paramilitary] in El Salvador where 75,000 civilians were killed was placed by Cheney and Rumsfeld as ‘OUR MAN IN IRAQ’ to train the counter insurgency.  Also involved with Elliot Abrams and Ollie North in the Iran Contra Affair. War criminal!!!
— Jose A, Rodriguez Jr,  the former Director of the National Clandestine Service for the CIA [served 31 years] and author of “Hard Measures: How Aggressive CIA Actions After 9/11 Saved American Lives”
  This Puerto Rican “Torture Wonder” from the University of Florida could not stop lauding his incredible efforts at engaging in constant torture of 9/11 victims to such an extent that he rode the celebrity circuit promoting his book of absurd observations: ”About 30 out of the 100 or so detainees that the CIA held were subjected to some harsh treatment.”
It’s this same ‘pobrecito’ who literally gave dictation to Kathryn Bigelow for her fictional film rendition of ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ and then after being reprimanded by me in an email to my contacts, Jose quickly recanted his story.  What an dishonorable, cowardly pobrecito!!!
General David Petraeus, who would become the DC I and tried to distance himself from Steele was deeply involved and knowledgeable about the torture and paramilitary death squads in Iraq. My bad!! 
Even yours truly could be fooled by the presumed integrity of a man who had been shot by his friend on a shooting range and claimed that he was the innovator of the thousand year old counter insurgency theory.  What a liar, well, someone saw fit to put Petraeus in his proper place of ignominy.  Too bad for the honorable men and women who served him and were fooled by him as I was.  Petraeus is an example of how rampant sociopathy and self aggrandizement rages through our so called warrior leaders.
BTW, in most cases of enhanced interrogation, one often needs the presence or advice of a physician, psychiatrist or psychologist.  I would recommend consulting my former psychiatric colleague who presents himself as an expert in the mind of a terrorist- Dr. Jerry Post.  He also trained at Harvard Medical College.  However, unlike myself, he was the founder and director of the Center for the Analysis of Personality and Political Behavior at the CIA for over 20 years.   In fact, he was so good at questioning terrorists or suspected terrorists that he was awarded the Intelligence Medal of Merit in 1979 and received the studies in Intelligence Award in 1980!  Atta boy!  He then received the Nevitt Sanford Award for Distinguished Professional Contributions to Political Psychology in 2002.  He was a consultant for the CIA for a long time and probably still is!  He presently resides as many academic CIA assets do at the George Washington University Department of Political Psychology on E Street in DC.  I am certain he knows a lot more about enhanced interrogation than any other psychiatrist or medical doctor….including me!
  By now, my dear readers, I am certain you get the idea.
  Falls flags galore.  Deaths abound.  Non-deaths are opine as in Sandy Hook.  At least, in the Boston Massacre, one can see how much of a ‘false flag’,  Sandy Hook was, without any pictures of blood, guts and death.   Remember that scene in Chicago where you have to razzle-dazzle them???  Distraction from the REAL story.
But the point is quite simple!
  Once again,  Executive tyranny reigns supreme over our Republic.
  It started with Slick Willy and Rendition and his corrupt political and economic cronyism.  Then it accelerated and deteriorated with Bush Jr and company.
 And now the President of “NON-TRANSPARENCY” and “NIXONIAN SECRECY” and “DRONE WARS” has continued the slide of our republic into a criminal civilization worthy of an international tribunal placing our leaders in jail or worse.
  As for me,  as I once said to a former governor who accused me of tyranny acting against his brother, Bush Jr,  I replied very calmly, “In times of tyranny, treason is PATRIOTISM”!!!

Vox Populis! Vox Deus!!
