what does this picture say about threats



if Iran had overthrown a democratically elected leader of the US what would we say about Iran



then there was that time the US shot down that Iranian Civilian Aircraft, in their own airspace...But people don't like to talk about that much...

You may be on to something very big right there

this guy claimed to have physical evidence that the 911 pilots (Saudi
Arabians, let's not forget) were trained in the US at Pinal Airpark (down the street from where Mohamed Atta once lived-really!) and other places.

Then, right before he was going to publish a new book with what he claimed contained blockbuster evidence that would ignite another investigation, he was found with a bullet in his head, along with his 2 teenage children and his dog. Without any hard evidence, and before the investigation was complete, the local Sheriff pronounced the horrific event a "murder/suicide". No gunshot residue tests have been released to the public yet.

Reading some of his work brought me to a very interesting video shot apparently just as flight 77 hit the pentagon- look at Porter Goss (co-sponsor of the patriot act) as an explosion happens *before* flight 77 impact:



Porter Goss was a spook from way back, hanging out with Sturgis (watergate) and Barry Seal, who was found one day with his head blown off and with GHWB's personal phone number in his trunk.

The author of that book that will never be released said the key is the Saudi involvement and I think he was on to something.

Here's Porter (2nd from left) sitting next to Barry Seal with Operation 40 in a Mexican nightclub in 1963

Karen Talbot circa 1999: Backing up Globalization with Military Might

New World Order Onslaught
by Karen Talbot
Covert Action Quarterly, Issue 68, Fall 1999

--snip--
...McDonald's Needs McDonnell Douglas to Flourish

An article by Thomas Friedman in the New York Times entitled "What the World Needs Now" tells it all. Illustrated by an American Flag on a fist it said, among other things: "For globalism to work, America can't be afraid to act like the almighty superpower that it is....The hidden hand of the market will never work without a hidden fist-McDonald's cannot flourish without McDonnell Douglas, the designer of the F-15. And the hidden fist that keeps the world safe for Silicon Valley's technologies is called the United States Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps." (23)

In today's world, TNCs, and governments running interference for them, are pushing relentlessly for an end to national sovereignty and democratic rights in order to achieve total unimpeded access to acquire investments, cheap labor and consumers in every nook and cranny of the globe. This is being accomplished particularly through mechanisms such as multilateral agreements on investment, NAFTA-type free trade agreements, and the dictates of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank and World Trade Organization (WTO).

The globalization fever is running rampant. It is epitomized in the feeding frenzy taking place across the Asia-Pacific region where U.S.-based transnationals and banks are gobbling up assets at bargain basement prices in nations stricken by the Asian economic crisis. In the early weeks of that economic tsunami, the New York Times , described U.S. banks and corporations as poised to "snap up some corporate bargains...Chase Manhattan, General Electric, General Motors and J.P. Morgan are all said to be looking at ailing companies in the region."(26)

Corporations will stop at nothing

To achieve maximum profits these transnationals will stop at nothing. After all, they are non-human institutions that must expand through ever-greater profits, or go out of business. In so doing they have shown willingness to violate human rights-particularly workers' rights—to throw millions out of work, eliminate unions, use sweat-shops and slave labor, destroy the environment, destabilize governments, install or bolster tyrants who oppress, repress, torture and kill with impunity...>>

Naomi Klein, Karen Talbot-- prophets. What's that saying again?

edit to add example: Cinnabon is first U.S. franchise in Libya
http://money.cnn.com/2012/08/01/smallbusiness/cinnabon-libya/index.htm

Cinnabon, based in Atlanta, is also looking to enter Algeria, Tunisia and Morocco, said Mike Shattuck, president of Focus Brands International, parent company of Cinnabon and other brands.

"We were in every major market in the Middle East. Expanding into Libya made sense as part of our emerging market strategy," he said.

Wall Street Deregulation Garners Bipartisan Support Despite Devastating JPMorgan Report

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/19/wall-street-deregulation-_n_2910168.html

WASHINGTON -- A bipartisan cadre of House lawmakers will move on legislation to deregulate Wall Street derivatives Wednesday, less than a week after Sen. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) released a devastating report on the multibillion-dollar derivatives debacle at JPMorgan Chase. "The road to hell is paved with these bills," said Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), an advocate of financial reform.

The House Agriculture Committee will mark up several derivatives bills on Wednesday despite opposition from a coalition of public interest and consumer advocacy groups known as Americans for Financial Reform. The effort to weaken regulation of these sophisticated financial instruments follows multiple in-depth autopsies of the London Whale debacle at JPMorgan, which has already cost the company $6.2 billion and tarnished its reputation as a prudent risk manager. It also comes less than three years after the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform legislation, signed into law by President Barack Obama in 2010, set a host of new standards for the derivatives business, including heightened transparency and reduced taxpayer support.

In a statement provided to The Huffington Post, Levin expressed exasperation at the House efforts. "Last year, some members of Congress supported watering down Dodd-Frank derivative safeguards, but abandoned those efforts after the world learned that JPMorgan Chase had lost billions of dollars on derivative trades made out of its London office," Levin said. "It is incredible that less than a week after new JPMorgan Whale hearings detailed how the bank's London office piled up risk, hid losses, and dodged regulatory oversight, that some House members are again supporting the weakening of derivative safeguards."

Derivatives were at the heart of the 2008 financial collapse. The preferred financial vehicle for a host of risky bets on the U.S. mortgage market, they created artificial demand for subprime mortgages, encouraging banks and mortgage brokers to extend loans to doomed borrowers. Derivatives pushed insurance giant AIG to the brink of bankruptcy and proved a hotbed for abuse on Wall Street. Goldman Sachs famously settled with the Securities and Exchange Commission for betting against the very derivatives it created and sold to its clients...More

Lots of time for this! No time for jobs though...

the first one, and the second one and the one between and the one after

it wasn't cool to protest PNAC WAR I (the 78 day bombing and invasion of Serbia) at the time, and still many people think that we were helping people by bombing other people. And look at how fast everyone has forgotten Libya. (Veni, Vidi, Ipse Est Mortuus!)

Soon, we'll have to protest another one, it's just a matter of time. Because Washington DC has become what we were told the USSR was. Right in front of everyone's eyes.
