Was Obama’s CIA Chief Behind Journalist’s Murder?
1980 – 2013
According to a hacked email from Defense contractor Stratfor that was reported on by San Diego Channel 6’s Kimberly Dvorak, it was former counter terrorism czar and now CIA chief John Brennan—and not Eric Holder’s Department of Justice—who was behind the recently revealed media witch hunt. Per the email, written by none other than Fred Burton, the president of the huge military contractor Stratfor, “Brennan is behind the witch hunts of investigative journalists…”
Hundreds of phones were tapped and emails gone through at the Associated Press and Fox News, all in a witch hunt to find out who was leaking information that was making the Obama administration look bad. James Rosen, a seasoned reporter at Fox News for years, was even named as an enemy of the state, charged under the Espionage Act. It turned out to be a ploy to get a judge to okay tapping Rosen’s work and personal phone, along with the phones of friends and family members.
Brennan, then as now in charge of Obama’s drone assassination program, has targeted American citizens on foreign soil, specifically the murder of Anwar al-Awlaki and his 16-year-old son, Abdulrahman, in Yemen, along with five other Yemeni teenagers.
The question is, did Brennan take the witch hunt of journalists to the next level? That is, did Brennan order the assassination of an American journalist? It’s really not that far of a stretch, as deeming an American citizen an enemy of the state, guilty of violating the Espionage Act—as was done with Fox’s James Rosen—carries the death penalty.
According to the widow of Michael Hastings, the Rolling Stone reporter killed in a suspicious car crash, Hastings was working on an exposé of John Brennan. Given that the official story of Hastings’ death is falling apart, do we need to look at John Brennan for answers?
According to the official story, Hastings was traveling at 100 miles per hour when he hit a tree, causing his 2013 Mercedes Benz C250 to explode and burst into flames. San Diego Channel 6’s Kimberly Dvorak contacted a San Diego State University professor of Mechanics to analyze newly unearthed video of Hastings’ vehicle seconds before the so-called crash. The professor stated that Hastings was only traveling 35 miles per hour, not 100 miles per hour as investigators claim. Further, according to Dvorak, a witness states that the vehicle blew up before it hit the tree. The unearthed video seems to corroborate this, as multiple explosions occur prior to the vehicle coming to rest at the base of the tree, not to mention the fact that there was minimal damage to the tree. Further, the engine and drivetrain were ejected several hundred feet from the vehicle at a ninety degree angle to the direction of travel. According to the laws of physics, this is impossible. This proves the vehicle exploded before hitting the tree.

Adding further fuel to the conspiracy fire, Hastings sent out a frantic email hours before his death, stating that he was working on a big story and needed to go into hiding, adding that the FBI was investigating him. When the email became public, the FBI vociferously denied investigating Hastings; but friends of Hastingsnot only confirm that the FBI was investigating him, but that the FBI had visited Hastings’ home the day before his death!
The question is not was Michael Hastings murdered, but who did it?
Did the head of the CIA—John Brennan—order the assassination of an American citizen on American soil?
Did John Brennan call for Michael Hastings to be tried under the Espionage Act, and did that prove to be too inconvenient for the head spook? Sources close to Hastings state not only that Hastings was investigating Brennan and his rogue CIA agency, but the NSA as well.
Of course, the NSA is playing damage control right now, being caught with their hand in the cookie jar, vacuuming up virtually all electronic communications. Just-opened mega database facility the Utah Data Center is storing virtually all the world’s communications. As revealed by whistleblower Edward Snowden, under the two NSA programs—PRISM and XKeyscore—the NSA is gorging itself with virtually everything that travels over wire, fiber optic cables, or satellite: Phone calls, emails, Facebook posts and chats, Skype, financial transactions, travel arrangements, even online web browsing and Google searches.
Did Michael Hastings discover that John Brennan had his hand in this or that he was involved in some other nefarious activity, and this needed to be hushed up fast?
Perhaps this is all a conspiracy theory.
Or perhaps not.

Dear concerned American,
I have a troubling situation to discuss.
I’ve seen the poll results, and they’re shocking.
Thank you for your time on this urgent matter,

I’ve written for a couple years that Barack Hussein Obama is guilty of high treason according to the US Constitution and that he needs to be impeached. Once impeached, he needs to be removed from office and imprisoned for the rest of his life without any of the retirement benefits that retiring presidents receive. Obama and his fellow liberal Democrats consider me to be a right wing conservative, radical and to be honest, I don’t mind the description at all. But be prepared for a black organization to be referred to as Uncle Toms and other racially derogatory terms. Why? Because they have seen the true Barack Obama and what he has done since taking office in January 2009. The National Black Republicans Association, headquartered in Sarasota, Florida have done exactly what I’ve been advocating someone in Congress do. They have filed articles of impeachment against Obama. They list a number of high crimes and misdemeanors that he has committed. Their document reads: “We, black American citizens, in order to free ourselves and our fellow citizens from governmental tyranny, do herewith submit these Articles of Impeachment to Congress for the removal of President Barack H. Obama, aka, Barry Soetoro, from office for his attack on liberty and commission of egregious acts of despotism that constitute high crimes and misdemeanors.” They specify the impeachment power and articles of impeachment, followed by the list of crimes. Under each article, they give the details supporting their accusations. Included in their articles of impeachment are: “ARTICLE 1 He has covered up, delayed, impeded and obstructed the investigation of the Benghazi Battle…. ARTICLE 2 He has disclosed secret grand jury material by exposing the existence of a sealed indictment of one of the Benghazi attackers in violation of Rule 6(e) of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure that clearly states: “… no person may disclose the indictment’s existence except as necessary to issue or execute a warrant or summons.’’ ARTICLE 3 He has authorized and permitted the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, a division of the Justice Department, to conduct Operation Fast and Furious, wherein guns were sold to Mexican drug trafficking organizations that were used to kill innocent Mexican civilians and two rifles sold to a smuggler in January 2010 ended up at the scene of the murder of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry in December 2010. ARTICLE 4 He has authorized and permitted confidential income tax returns information from the Internal Revenue Service to be provided to unauthorized individuals, organizations and agencies. ARTICLE 5 He has caused investigations and audits to be initiated or conducted by the Internal Revenue Service in a discriminatory manner, including harassment and intimidation of conservative, evangelical and Tea Party groups applying for non-profit status between 2010 and 2012…. ARTICLE 6 He has (1) authorized and permitted the National Security Agency to conduct or continue electronic surveillance of over 300 million average Americans; (2) given access to National Security Agency surveillance data to other intelligence units within the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Secret Service, the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security in violation of the law; and (3) conducted the surveillance of average Americans unconstrained by Congress, the United States Supreme Court or the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court which has, to this date, functioned as a rubber stamp, having approved every request made of it in 2012 and rejecting only two of the 8,591 requests submitted between 2008 and 2012. ARTICLE 7 He has authorized and permitted the Department of Justice to wiretap and secretly obtain two months of telephone and e-mail records of Fox News Reporter James Rosen and over one hundred Associated Press journalists. ARTICLE 8 He has thwarted Congress by (1) failing to enforce all or parts of laws duly enacted by Congress, including the Defense of Marriage Act, the No Child Left Behind Act, and the Affordable Care Act; and (2) after Congress refused to pass his Dream Act, unilaterally issuing an executive order directing immigration officers to no longer deport an entire class of illegal immigrants who came here as children, regardless of individual circumstances, and to give them work-authorization permits. ARTICLE 9 He has violated the Constitution when, on January 4, 2012, (1) he bypassed the U. S. Senate to appoint three members of the National Labor Relations Board, actions that were ruled unconstitutional by the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit which affirmed previous decisions by the Court of Appeal for the D.C. Circuit and the Third Circuit; and (2) he bypassed the U. S. Senate to appoint Richard Cordray to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. ARTICLE 10 He has intimidated whistleblowers and brought twice as many prosecutions against whistleblowers as all prior presidents combined. Egregiously, while refusing to prosecute anyone for actual torture, he prosecuted former Central Intelligence Agency employee John Kiriakou for disclosing the torture program. Wherefore Barack H. Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, by such conduct, warrants impeachment and trial, and removal from office. Contact: Frances Rice, Chairman National Black Republican Association 4594 Chase Oaks Drive, Sarasota, FL 34241” To their list of charges, I would add the charge of treason in aiding and abetting our enemy. Obama bypassed Congress to free up hundreds of millions of dollars to the Egyptian government run by the Muslim Brotherhood. He also provided them with weapons and fighter jets. A live camera feed from a meeting of the Egyptian counsel clearly recorded them as saying that the United States was an enemy just like Israel and needed to be destroyed. Since they consider us an enemy and Obama continued to provide them with money and arms, that constitutes treason according to Article 3, Section 3 of the Constitution which reads: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” An additional charge that should be included would be his refusal to comply with the US Constitution and election laws by refusing to provide proper and authentic proof of meeting all of the requirements necessary to hold the office of President of the United States. In my opinion, this is the most egregious crime of all because if Obama is truly not eligible to hold the office, then he has illegally acted at president and none of these other crimes should have taken place. He would be an imposter and fraud to the highest degree. The ironic part of this is that the articles of impeachment are being filed by blacks. Obama’s mousy little puppet Eric Holder can’t holler racism like he usually does against any non-black that criticizes Obama. Instead, it wouldn’t surprise me to see him use terms like Uncle Toms and other derogatory terms. What I call them are honest Americans trying to stop the gross injustices committed by a man who should never have been allowed in the White House to begin with.

Leewardrodco: A Dying Senior Citizen Tells It Like It Is…
This is well written!
It will be well worth the two minutes it requires to read this. It is quite impressive.
You can be Republican, Democrat, Liberal, Conservative, Independent or Libertarian and I bet this will hit a nerve. Our country is in real trouble.
This gentleman is obviously quite smarter than the two senators he sent it to. All I can say is amen to everything he said. A very articulate letter sent to the two U.S. Senators from Washington State .
April 3, 2013
Senator Patty Murray
Senator Maria Cantwell
Washington, DC, 20510
I have tried to live by the rules my entire life. My father was a Command Sergeant Major, U.S. Army, who died of combat related stresses shortly after his retirement. It was he who instilled in me those virtues he felt important – honesty, duty, patriotism and obeying the laws of God and of our various governments. I have served my country, paid my taxes, worked hard, volunteered and donated my fair share of money, time and artifacts.
Today, as I approach my 79th birthday, I am heart-broken when I look at my country and my government. I shall only point out a very few things abysmally wrong which you can multiply by a thousand fold. I have calculated that all the money I have paid in income taxes my entire life cannot even keep the Senate barbershop open for one year! Only Heaven and a few tight-lipped actuarial types know what the Senate dining room costs the taxpayers. So please, enjoy your haircuts and meals on us.
Last year, the president spent an estimated $1.4 billion on himself and his family. The vice president spends $ millions on hotels. They have had 8 vacations so far this year! And our House of Representatives and Senate have become America’s answer to the Saudi royal family. You have become the “perfumed princes and princesses” of our country.
In the middle of the night, you voted in the Affordable Health Care Act, a.k.a. “Obama Care,” a bill which no more than a handful of senators or representatives read more than several paragraphs, crammed it down our throats, and then promptly exempted yourselves from it, substituting your own taxpayer-subsidized golden health care insurance.
You live exceedingly well, eat and drink as well as the “one percenters,” consistently vote yourselves perks and pay raises while
making 3.5 times the average U.S. individual income, and give up nothing while you (as well as the president and veep) ask us to sacrifice due to sequestration (for which, of course, you plan to blame the Republicans, anyway).
You understand very well the only two rules you need to know – (1) How to get elected, and (2) How to get re-elected. And you do this with the aid of an eagerly willing and partisan press, speeches permeated with a certain economy of truth, and by buying the votes of the greedy, the ill-informed and under-educated citizens (and non-citizens, too, many of whom do vote) who are looking for a handout rather than a job. Your so-called “safety net” has become a hammock for the lazy. And, what is it now, about 49 or 50 million on food stamps – pretty much all Democratic voters – and the program is absolutely rife with fraud with absolutely no congressional oversight?
I would offer that you are not entirely to blame. What changed you is the seductive environment of power in which you have immersed yourselves. It is the nature of both houses of Congress which requires you to subordinate your virtue in order to get anything done until you have achieved a leadership role. To paraphrase President Reagan, it appears that the second oldest profession (politics), bears a remarkably strong resemblance to the oldest.
As the hirsute first Baron John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton (1834 – 1902), English historian and moralist, so aptly and accurately stated, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” I’m only guessing that this applies to the female sex as well. Tell me, is there a more corrupt entity in this country than Congress?
While we middle class people continue to struggle, our government becomes less and less transparent, more and more bureaucratic, and ever so much more dictatorial, using Czars and Secretaries to tell us (just to mention a very few) what kind of light bulbs we must purchase, how much soda or hamburgers we can eat, what cars we can drive, gasoline to use and what health care we must buy. Countless thousands of pages of regulations strangle our businesses costing the consumer more and more every day.
As I face my final year, or so, with cancer, my president and my government tell me “You’ll just have to take a pill,” while you, Senator, your colleagues, the president, and other exulted government officials and their families will get the best possible health care on our tax dollars until you are called home by your Creator, while also enjoying a retirement beyond my wildest dreams, which of course, you voted for yourselves and we pay for.
The chances of you reading this letter are practically zero as your staff will not pass it on, but with a little luck, a form letter response might be generated by them with an auto signature applied, hoping we will believe that you, our senator or representative, has heard us and actually cares. This letter will, however, go online where many others will have the chance to read one person’s opinion, rightly or wrongly, about this government, its administration and its senators and representatives.
I only hope that occasionally you might quietly thank the taxpayer for all the generous entitlements which you have voted yourselves, for which, by law, we must pay, unless, of course, it just goes on the $17 trillion national debt for which your children and ours, and your grandchildren and ours, ad infinitum, must eventually try to pick up the tab.
My final thoughts are that it must take a person who has either lost his or her soul, or conscience, or both, to seek re-election and continue to destroy this country I deeply love and put it so far in debt that we will never pay it off, while your lot improves by the minute, because of your power. For you, Senator, will never stand up to the rascals in your House who constantly deceive the American people. And that, my dear Senator, is how power has corrupted you and the entire Congress. The only answer to clean up this cesspool is term limits. This, of course, will kill the goose that lays your golden eggs. And woe be to him (or her) who would dare to bring it up.

Esto me gusta tanto que no puedo resistir la tentacion de ponerlo de cuando en cuando. ¿Estan ustedes de acuerdo? A veces me parece que la gente no vive en el mismo mundo que yo vivo… ¿Sera por eso que me busco tantos problemas?
I have been wondering about why Whites are racists and no other race is?
Proud to be White Michael Richards makes his point…Michael Richards better known as Kramer from TVs Seinfeld does make a good point.
This was his defense speech in court after making racial comments in his comedy act. He makes some very interesting points…
Someone finally said it. How many are actually paying attention to this?
There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, etc.. And then there are just Americans.. You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction.
You call me ‘White boy,’ ‘Cracker,’ ‘Honkey,’ ‘Whitey,’ ‘Caveman’… And that’s OK…
But when I call you, Nigger, Kike, Towel head, Sand-nigger, Camel Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink ..You call me a racist.
You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you….
So why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?
You have the United Negro College Fund. You have Martin Luther King Day.
You have Black History Month.
You have Cesar Chavez Day.
You have Yom Hashoah.
You have Ma’uled Al-Nabi.
You have the NAACP.
You have BET….
If we had WET (White Entertainment Television), we’d be racists.
If we had a White Pride Day, you would call us racists.
If we had White History Month, we’d be racists.
If we had any organization for only whites to ‘advance’ OUR lives, we’d be racists.
We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce. Wonder who pays for that??
A white woman could not be in the Miss Black American pageant, but any color can be in the Miss America pageant.
If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships… You know we’d be racists.
There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US…Yet if there were ‘White colleges’, that would be a racist college.
In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights. If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists.
You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, Homosexual, Lesbian and you’re not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.
You rob us, car jack us, Rape and shoot at us.
But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.
I am proud…… But you call me a racist.
Why is it that only whites can be racists?? There is nothing improper about this e-mail..
Let’s see which of you are proud enough to send it on. I sadly don’t think many will.
That’s why we have LOST most of OUR RIGHTS in this country.
We won’t stand up for ourselves! BE PROUD TO BE WHITE!
It’s not a crime YET….But getting very close!
“EN MI OPINION” LA ECONOMIA AMERICANA SE DESINTEGRA EN CAIDA LIBRE, EL INDICE DE CONSUMO SE DESPLOMA UN 1.8 %, MUCHOS DE LOS EMPLEOS QUE SE CREAN NO SON DE TIEMPO COMPLETO, HAY MAS DE 20 GRANDES CIUDADES DE LOS USA QUE ESTAN EN BANCARROTA, EL PRECIO DE LAS GASOLINA SIGUE SUBIENDO ABRIENDO UN HUECO EN LOS BOLSILLOS DE LOS NORTEAMERICANOS, EL REAL ESTATE SIGUE ESTANCADO, LAS CASAS SIGUEN EN FORCLOSURE Y LA CONSTRUCCION NO DESPEGA, MAS DE 40 MILLONES DE AMERICANOS ESTAN EN PLAN DE FOOD SATAMP U OTROS PLAN DE AYUDA DEL GOBIERNO.

Recibí una acusación vieja COMO NUEVA… “Los VIVOS”
Desde 1959… hay muchos que han hecho millones con Castro… de siempre había agentes que tramitaban permisos de salidas de Cuba… eran la mayoría de las veces… COMUNISTAS que el partido les había ordenado infiltrar como políticos los gobiernos auténticos y batistiano… y estando maculados… eran mas útiles en el exilio que en Cuba…
Para solo tener una idea de cómo se fracturo la familia cubana… solo se necesita un ejemplo… Raúl Martínez… el alcalde de Hialeah… tenía un tío GENERAL… y tiene ahora todavía DOS PRIMOS GENERALES… Lincoln Díaz Balard es primo de Fidelito… CLARO que no se tratan… pero hay miles de cubanos parientes… en los dos bandos…
Los Castristas… desde que se cerraron los envíos directos de Paquetes… establecieron negocios de envíos… copia del famoso“Socorro Rojo” organizado en Cuba para ayudar a los comunistas españoles en 1936… El “Almacén El Español” otro es “VA CUBA”esas compañías de enviar paquetes operaban y siguen operando con permisos “ESPECIALES” otorgados por la dictadura… Si un “No Autorizado” ponía ese negocio… el régimen se encargaba de arruinarlo con solo NO PERMITIR LA DISTRIBUCIÓN DEL PAQUETE…
Se acuerdan del “Agente Ramón Donestevez” No sé cómo se le infiltró a Maurice Ferre… nunca Ferre lo explicó… consiguió que este le prestará su yate personal… para ir a negociar a Cuba… al final… “El Agente Ramoncito” después de 3 viajes a Cuba (dos de los viajes en barcos propiedad de Maurice Ferre y en uno acompañado del administrador de sus negocios Cesar Odio… quien después fue administrador de la ciudad de Miami ) y de entregar a Cuba una copia del barco de la Beltran… al que le llamaron “PIRAÑA” por haber sido el modelo (Pirañado = robado)… apareció ASESINANDO EN SUS OFICINAS… sin que nunca se supiera quien lo asesino…
Recuerden los primeros viajes a Cuba… los permisos se dieron UNO A UNO… los viajes a Cuba es una historia muy larga… Castro le dio laEXCLUSIVIDAD a su agente “ESTRELLA” a quien ordenó infiltrarse en Miami en Marzo de 1959… y secuestro a Rafael del Pino… esta es otra historia MUY LARGA y sangrienta…
Para Negociar Con Los Castro/Comunistas
Se Necesitan “Condiciones Especiales”
Cuales son esas “Condiciones Especiales” no las se… pero tiene que“Ser De Todo Un Poco” condiciones que no todos tenemos…
Recibí esta NUEVA- VIEJA ACUSACIÓN… la paso… pues Roger Pérez debe de ser nuevo en el exilio… EL NOS DICE:
Hace rato que detrás de bastidores vienen afilándose los dientes grandes inversionistas para sacar provecho de la coyuntura económica de Cuba.
La mesa esta puesta por el Castrismo y parece esta vez no son ellos, sino los de acá los que forzaran el cambio económico inevitable.
Al régimen de la Habana parece le está saliendo bien la jugada; así no sólo los octogenarios en el poder puedan terminar sus días con sus privilegios, sino también asegurarle a sus hijos y nietos su dinastía. Incluyendo parte de la cúpula militar que ya tiene su parte en la “piñata” castrista.
Acá como siempre lo que importa es obtener jugosas ganancias personales, al igual que allá los que mantienen el poder. Así que olvídense de derechos humanos y democracia!
Lo único que quedara para la historia será la ilusión de una república que bien pudo ser una de las mejores del hemisferio.
Ahora se dan los pasos para aniquilar lo que quedaba de la “Nación Cubana”, su patrimonio de historia, cultura, arte y bienestar democrático, para convertirse en otra “China”
Y como más de medio siglo de dictadura ha logrado desfigurar el carácter e idiosincrasia del Cubano..,
Ya a nadie le importa ni a los de allá ni a los de acá que Cuba sea libre, democrática y soberana. Y lamentablemente el régimen a neutralizado o aniquilado a los disidentes y opositores que son los ÚNICOS que luchando dentro de Cuba han tratado de mantener vivo ese ideal.
El Castrismo a muy pesar nuestro ha apuntalando esa “Finca privada” en las mismas narices de quienes tampoco le interesó mucho preservar una Cuba Libre, democrática para el bien y prosperidad de su pueblo.
‘IS EVERYBODY BLIND?’: CITY COUNCIL MEETING ERUPTS IN APPLAUSE AFTER RETIRED MARINE ISSUES DIRE WARNING ABOUT U.S. ‘BUILDING A DOMESTIC ARMY’ [UPDATED] Aug. 15, 2013 10:25pm Mike Opelka
Editor’s note: This story has been updated with significant additional information. See below.
A former member of the United States Marine Corps on Monday night voiced his serious concerns about the U.S. “building a domestic Army” during a local city council meeting in Concord, N.H. In his impassioned testimony, the retired Marine said he believes that the recent push for local police forces to bulk up on military-grade equipment is disturbing and represents a very real threat to Americans.
His fears bring to mind something President Barack Obama actually suggested while running for president in July 2008:
“We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”
That statement from then-Sen. Obama may have been on the mind of one participant at the recent Concord City Council meeting.
This past Monday night, Concord, N.H. held its monthly city council meeting. At the end of the fairly typical gathering, during the public session, citizens were allowed to give testimony (stand and speak to the council and the citizens gathered). One speaker’s comments have started to go viral on the web.
These comments reportedly came from a former colonel in the United States Marines Corps. The still unidentified former military man said he was concerned about the way America’s domestic police forces have started looking more and more like the U.S. military. His statements were in response to the local police chief’s request for the military grade vehicle – a Ballistic Engineered Armed Response Counter Attack Truck. These vehicles are also known as BearCats.

The council was supposed to vote on this request for the BearCat during the meeting.
The speaker claimed to have worked as a military defense coordinator – someone who wastraining the Iraqi army. You can watch the 3:09 video and read a full transcript below.
A full transcript of what the former Marine said to the crowd reads:
We don’t need this.
I’m a retired… I was a retired Colonel in the Marine Corps.
I saw a sign hanging in the back that said we want “More Mayberry, Less Fallujah.”
I spent a year in Fallujah. You know what, when I first got there, I didn’t have armored Humvees.
I spent…I traveled over 10,000 miles over there. Sometimes you had to deal with and go with what you had. That’s part of the job, for one.
And second thing was… I was a Ministry of Defense Coordinator. Where job was to man, train and equip the Iraqi Army…and I can tell you right now…Somebody had the idea to get rid of the Iraqi Army…When we rebuilt it, we did everything we could to make it as strong as possible. And I’ll tell you right now, Homeland Security would kick their butts in a week.
What’s happening here is we’re building a domestic military because it’s unlawful and unconstitutional to use American troops on American soil. So what we’re doing is building a military.
My best friend, who is a SWAT officer in Nashua (NH), came to Iraq with me to train the Iraqi police, sent me a picture of him in the media, on the streets of Watertown, MASS, wearing the exact same combat gear we had in Iraq, only was a different color.
The way we do things in the military is called “task organization.” You take a command and then you attach units to it in order to accomplish the mission. What’s happening is, Homeland Security is pre-staging gear, equipment. What they’re trying to do is use standardized vehicles, standardized equipment.
I saw a picture in the Boston Globe during the Boston Marathon bombing, where there was a State police officer…actually there were two officers, they both had identical helmets, flak jackets, weapons, everything I wore in Iraq, only it was all blue. The officer on one side had a big patch that said Massachusetts State Police…the other officer next to him…his patch said Boston Police.
What we’re doing here, and let’s not kid about it, we’re building a domestic army and we’re shrinking the military because the government is afraid of it’s own citizens.
The last time more than 10 terrorists were in the same place at the same time was September 11th. And all these vehicles in the world wouldn’t have prevented it or helped anybody.
So I don’t know where we’re gonna use this many vehicles and this many troops. Concord is just one little cog in the wheel. We’re building an army over here and I can’t believe people aren’t seeing it.
Is everybody blind? (crowd erupts in applause – “thank you” is heard from someone close to the camera).
The colonel offered to take questions from the crowd. None were asked. As he left the mic, Martino closed by stating, “My wife always tells my kids — there’s always free cheese in the mousetrap.”
One video posted online claims that a scheduled vote on the purchase of the BearCat truck has been postponed until a meeting on September 9th.
TheBlaze has contacted the municipal offices in Concord and requested a copy of the transcripts in order to identify and contact the mystery Marine. As soon as we receive the transcript, we will update the story with more from the Marine.
Update: Several Blaze readers have reached out to TheBlaze with additional information on this story, including the identity of the retired Marine, Col. Pete Martino. We have reached out to Martino and are still waiting for a reply.
We also heard from Carla Gericke, the President of the Free State Project. She describes her group as, “a peaceful movement to concentrate 20,000 liberty lovers in New Hampshire.” According to Gericke, her group was also cited as a “domestic terror threat” by the Concord city council’s petition for a grant to purchase the $258,000 Leno BearCat vehicle pictured above. You can see the mention of “Free Staters” in Section 1, paragraph B of the application.

The Free Staters were in attendance at the Concord city council meeting. And as you can see from this photo of them approaching the building, they appear to be a well organized, and well heeled group. Not exactly along the lines of the typical OWS crowd.
Carla was one of the 48 people who testified at the city council meeting. She reports to TheBlaze that 44 of the 48 were against the proposed purchase of the BearCat, with only 4 people speaking in favor of the idea.

A Florida-based organization of black Republicans is calling for Barack Obama’s impeachment, releasing “Articles” that charge him with “egregious acts of despotism that constitute high crimes and misdemeanors.”
According to the Florida WatchdogWire, there are 10 articles including obstruction of the investigation into the Benghazi, Libya, murder of four Americans; the scandal of the administration’s running guns to drug ring lords in Mexico and the Internal Revenue Service’s campaign to obstruct the operations of conservative and Christian organizations.
The National Black Republican Association is an organization that is dedicated to returning “black Americans to their Republican Party roots by enlightening them about how Republicans fought for their freedom and civil rights, and are now fighting for their educational and economic advancement.”
The organization said the articles were delivered to Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker John Boehner, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and the Judiciary Committee of the U.S. House of Representatives.
THINGS JUST GOT REAL PERSONAL IN FEUD BETWEEN BILL O’REILLY AND AL SHARPTON
Aug. 15, 2013 9:27pm Jason Howerton
Bill O’Reilly took his feud with Al Sharpton to the next level on Thursday, alleging that the so-called civil rights leader came to him and asked for money to benefit his broke Harlem charity a few years ago, a request that O’Reilly was happy to grant. But that hasn’t prevented Sharpton from going on MSNBC and slamming the conservative TV host as anti-poor and even insinuating that he is a racist.
O’Reilly began on Thursday by claiming Sharpton lied about a report he did on food stamp fraud when he took his comments completely out of context. On his show Tuesday, Sharpton accused O’Reilly of attacking the poor after he did a report about a healthy man receiving food stamps so he can surf all day and not have to worry about employment.
“Sharpton, obviously taking my comments totally out of context, not even mentioning Jason the surfer and basically not telling the truth once again,” O’Reilly responded on Thursday.

He then dropped the “crusher” about Sharpton, who he says has been portraying him as a “racist and a brutalizer of the poor.”
“A few years ago, Sharpton told me that his charity in Harlem, N.Y., was out of money and that it could not provide Christmas presents and Christmas dinner to hundreds of poor people in Harlem,” O’Reilly explained. “So I gave Sharpton a $25,000 donation to prove the gifts and food.”
“I never mentioned it, because it wasn’t necessary to mention it. But now it is. To prove exactly what kind of person Sharpton is,” he added.
RNC votes to block CNN, NBC from hosting debates
By Associated Press/AP Online August 16, 2013 12:09 pm
BOSTON – The Republican National Committee has approved a resolution to block two television networks from hosting GOP presidential primary debates.
Friday’s vote affirms RNC chairman Reince Priebus’s (ryns PREE’-bus) threat against CNN and NBC unless the networks drop plans to air programs about possibleDemocratic presidential contender Hillary Rodham Clinton. The vote at the committee’s summer meeting in Boston was unanimous.
Priebus said that the networks have, quote, “an obvious bias.”
Even before the Clinton dispute, Republican leaders favored plans to have fewer presidential debates with more friendly moderators. They believe their 2012 presidential candidates spent too much time beating up each other in last year’s months-long primary season, which contributed to Mitt Romney’s loss.
And more from Fox News:
The RNC claims that a Clinton-themed documentary and a separate miniseries — in the works from CNN and NBC, respectively — will put a “thumb on the scales” in the upcoming 2016 presidential election.
The draft resolution, obtained by Fox News in advance and later voted on by RNC officials, calls on CNN and NBC to cancel what it describes as “political ads masked as unbiased entertainment.”
And if they don’t, the resolution states, “the Republican National Committee will neither partner with these networks in the 2016 presidential primary debates nor sanction any primary debates they sponsor.”
As Fox News reports, “Last month, CNN Films announced it was producing a documentary on Clinton to premiere next year, first in theaters and then on CNN. NBC also announced a four-hour “Hillary” miniseries starring Diane Lane, on the life of the former secretary of State and first lady.
BEHIND BENGHAZI: MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD AND OBAMA ADMINISTRATION
By: Raymond Ibrahim
Evidence that Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood was directly involved in the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, where Americans including U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens were killed, continues to mount.
First, on June 26, 2013, I produced and partially translated what purported to be an internal Libyan governmental memo which was leaked and picked up by many Arabic websites. According to this document, the Muslim Brotherhood, including now ousted President Morsi, played a direct role in the Benghazi consulate attack. “Based on confessions derived from some of those arrested at the scene,” asserted the report, six people, “all of them Egyptians” from the jihad group Ansar al-Sharia (Supporters of Islamic Law), were arrested. During interrogations, these Egyptian jihadi cell members:
confessed to very serious and important information concerning the financial sources of the group and the planners of the event and the storming and burning of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi…. And among the more prominent figures whose names were mentioned by cell members during confessions were: Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi; preacher Safwat Hegazi; Saudi businessman Mansour Kadasa, owner of the satellite station, Al-Nas; Egyptian Sheikh Muhammad Hassan; former presidential candidate, Hazim Salih Abu Isma’il…
Four days after this memo appeared, the military-backed June 30 Egyptian revolution took place. Many of the Islamists in the Libyan document have either been arrested—includingSafwat Hegazi and Abu Isma’il—or have arrest warrants under terrorism charges.
Walid Shoebat followed up with some important investigative work concerning the Libyan document, including by documenting that Western sources had finally acknowledged that there is a group called Ansar al-Sharia operating in Egypt with a cell in Libya, and that, with the ouster of Muhammad Morsi, it (along with al-Qaeda) had declared jihad on Egypt’s military (not to mention regular civilians in general, and Coptic Christians in particular).
The fact is, days after the Benghazi attack back in September 2012, Muslim Brotherhood connections appeared. A video made during the consulate attack records people approaching the beleaguered U.S. compound; one of them yells to the besiegers in an Egyptian dialect, “Don’t shoot—Dr. Morsi sent us!” apparently a reference to the former Islamist president.
Most recently, on July 29, 2013, Ahmed Musa, a prominent Egyptian political insider and analyst made several assertions on Tahrir TV that further connected the dots. During hisprogram, while berating U.S. ambassador Anne Patterson for her many pro-Brotherhood policies—policies that have earned her the hate and contempt of millions of Egyptians—Musa insisted that he had absolute knowledge that the murderer of Chris Stevens was Mohsin al-‘Azzazi, whose passport was found in Brotherhood leader Khairet al-Shatter’s home, when the latter was arrested. According to the firm assurances of political analyst Musa, ‘Azzazi is currently present in Raba‘a al-Adawiya, where he, the seasoned terrorist, is preparing to do what he does best—terrorize Egypt, just as the Brotherhood have promised, in revenge for the ousting of Morsi.
But why would Morsi and the Brotherhood attack the consulate in Libya in the first place? The day before the embassy attacks, based on little known but legitimate Arabic reports, I wrote an article titled “Jihadis Threaten to Burn U.S. Embassy in Cairo,” explaining how Islamists—including al-Qaeda—were threatening to attack the U.S. embassy in Cairo unless the notorious Blind Sheikh—an Islamist hero held in prison in the U.S. in connection to the first World Trade Center bombing—was released. The date September 11 was also deliberately chosen to attack the embassy to commemorate the “heroic” September 11, 2001 al-Qaeda strikes on America. (Regardless, the Obama administration, followed by the so-called mainstream media, portrayed the embassy attacks as unplanned reactions to an offensive movie.)
The theory is this: in order to negotiate the release of the Blind Sheikh, the Islamists needed an important American official to barter in exchange. And while the violence on U.S. embassiesbegan in Egypt, it seemed logical that kidnapping an American official from neighboring Libya would be less conspicuous than in Egypt, where Egyptians, including Morsi, were calling for the release of the Egyptian Blind Sheikh. Thus the U.S. consulate in Libya was attacked, Chris Stevens kidnapped, but in the botched attempt, instead of becoming a valuable hostage, he wound up dead.
Add to all this the fact that, despite the very serious charges filed against them—including inciting murder and terrorism, and grand treason—the Obama administration, first with Anne Patterson, and now with Senators John McCain and Lindsay Graham, keep pressuring Egypt to release Brotherhood leaders; McCain personally even visited the civilian al-Shatter, whose raided home revealed the passport of ‘Azzazi, whom Musa claims is the murderer of Stevens.
Needless to say, at this point, tens of millions of Egyptians are convinced that U.S. leadership is fully aware of the Brotherhood’s connection to Benghazi—and hence desperately pushing for the release of Brotherhood leadership, lest, when they are tried in Egypt’s courts, all these scandals become common knowledge.
Meanwhile in the United States, to a mainstream American public—conditioned as it is by a mainstream media—all of the above is just a “conspiracy theory,” since surely the U.S. government is transparent with the American people—except, that is, when it’s not.
GOOD AFTERNOON TO VERYONE!
President Obama’s position on domestic spying has been that it’s not happening, and if it is, it’s all being handled with the greatest of care. Both of those talking points died when theWashington Post released the results of a secret NSA internal audit, provided to them by the notorious Edward Snowden. It turns out there have been over 2,000 violations of protocol, privacy laws, and in at least one case, the Constitution. The NSA says not to worry, because they’re harvesting so much data that 2,000 mistakes is a tiny percentage. That’s… not really very comforting.
Scale has always been one of the disturbing aspects of the “surveillance state” controversy. The American people generally support measures designed to fight terrorism and improve domestic security. But they don’t imagine those measures will be directed at everyone, producing millions of intercepts and meta-data collections instead of targeting surveillance at thousands of suspects. To turn the NSA’s defense of this audit report on its head, common sense tells us that acceptable margins of error become troubling when the size of the program increases by several orders of magnitude.
Also, even the most security-conscious Americans expect strict oversight and due process, respecting both the right to privacy and the presumption of innocence. But this eyebrow-raising internal audit was kept so far under wraps that even Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, didn’t know about it. That’s also not very comforting to know.

Y ahora, quien me va a sacar la tanguita?
Todos los presentes gritaron a coro:
!Se vive, se siente, Ramiro con los dientes!

Alejandra no aguantó más. Salió corriendo y se metió en un taxi.
Ramiro la siguió dentro del vehículo. La mujer empezó a pegarle y trató de arrojarlo fuera.
!Eres el hijueputa mas grande de toda la historia!
Alejandra se sacó un zapato e histérica, comenzó a pegarle en la cabeza y a gritarle groserías.
En esas el taxista se dio la vuelta y exclamo: MIRE QUE HEMOS LLEVADO PUTAS BRAVAS…, DON RAMIRO… !PERO, COMO ESTA, NINGUNA!!!!!
