Lupe Fiasco: Obama 'The Biggest Terrorist

via Huffington Post

"In my fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama, and the United States of America," Lupe told host Shira Lazar. (Scroll down to watch the interview.) He went on to explain the comment:

"I'm trying to fight the terrorism that's actually causing the other forms of terrorism. You know, the root cause of terrorism is the stuff that the U.S. government allows to happen, and the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. And it's easy for us because it's just some oil."

Watch the interview with Lupe ("terrorist" comments begin around 2:10)

Patriot Act Extension Signed By Obama

Patriot Act Extension Signed By Obama

MAY 27, 2011

JIM ABRAMS 05/27/11 07:37 AM ET

WASHINGTON — Minutes before a midnight deadline, President Barack Obama signed into law a four-year extension of post-Sept. 11 powers to search records and conduct roving wiretaps in pursuit of terrorists.

“It’s an important tool for us to continue dealing with an ongoing terrorist threat,” Obama said Friday after a meeting with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

With Obama in France, the White House said the president used an autopen machine that holds a pen and signs his actual signature. It is only used with proper authorization of the president.

Congress sent the bill to the president with only hours to go on Thursday before the provisions expired at midnight. Votes taken in rapid succession in the Senate and House came after lawmakers rejected attempts to temper the law enforcement powers to ensure that individual liberties are not abused.
The Senate voted 72-23 for the legislation to renew three terrorism-fighting authorities. The House passed the measure 250-153 on an evening vote.

A short-term expiration would not have interrupted ongoing operations but would have barred the government from seeking warrants for new investigations.

Congress bumped up against the deadline mainly because of the stubborn resistance from a single senator, Republican freshman Rand Paul of Kentucky, who saw the terrorist-hunting powers as an abuse of privacy rights. Paul held up the final vote for several days while he demanded a chance to change the bill to diminish the government’s ability to monitor individual actions.

The measure would add four years to the legal life of roving wiretaps – those authorized for a person rather than a communications line or device – of court-ordered searches of business records and of surveillance of non-American “lone wolf” suspects without confirmed ties to terrorist groups.

The roving wiretaps and access to business records are small parts of the USA Patriot Act enacted after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. But unlike most of the act, which is permanent law, those provisions must be renewed periodically because of concerns that they could be used to violate privacy rights. The same applies to the “lone wolf” provision, which was part of a 2004 intelligence law.

Paul argued that in the rush to meet the terrorist threat in 2001 Congress enacted a Patriot Act that tramples on individual liberties. He had some backing from liberal Democrats and civil liberties groups who have long contended the law gives the government authority to spy on innocent citizens.
Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said he voted for the act when he was a House member in 2001 “while ground zero was still burning.” But “I soon realized it gave too much power to government without enough judicial and congressional oversight.”

Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., said the provision on collecting business records can expose law-abiding citizens to government scrutiny. “If we cannot limit investigations to terrorism or other nefarious activities, where do they end?” he asked.
“The Patriot Act has been used improperly again and again by law enforcement to invade Americans’ privacy and violate their constitutional rights,” said Laura W. Murphy, director of the ACLU Washington legislative office.

Still, coming just a month after intelligence and military forces tracked down and killed Osama bin Laden, there was little appetite for tampering with the terrorism-fighting tools. These tools, said Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, “have kept us safe for nearly a decade and Americans today should be relieved and reassured to know that these programs will continue.”

Intelligence officials have denied improper use of surveillance tools, and this week both FBI Director Robert Mueller and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper sent letters to congressional leaders warning of serious national security consequences if the provisions were allowed to lapse.

The Obama administration says that without the three authorities the FBI might not be able to obtain information on terrorist plotting inside the U.S. and that a terrorist who communicates using different cell phones and email accounts could escape timely surveillance.

“When the clock strikes midnight tomorrow, we would be giving terrorists the opportunity to plot attacks against our country, undetected,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said on the Senate floor Wednesday. In unusually personal criticism of a fellow senator, he warned that Paul, by blocking swift passage of the bill, “is threatening to take away the best tools we have for stopping them.”

The nation itself is divided over the Patriot Act, as reflected in a Pew Research Center poll last February, before the killing of bin Laden, that found that 34 percent felt the law “goes too far and poses a threat to civil liberties. Some 42 percent considered it “a necessary tool that helps the government find terrorists.” That was a slight turnaround from 2004 when 39 percent thought it went too far and 33 percent said it was necessary.

Paul, after complaining that Reid’s remarks were “personally insulting,” asked whether the nation “should have some rules that say before they come into your house, before they go into your banking records, that a judge should be asked for permission, that there should be judicial review? Do we want a lawless land?”

Paul agreed to let the bill go forward after he was given a vote on two amendments to rein in government surveillance powers. Both were soundly defeated. The more controversial, an amendment that would have restricted powers to obtain gun records in terrorist investigations, was defeated 85-10 after lawmakers received a letter from the National Rifle Association stating that it was not taking a position on the measure.

According to a senior Justice Department national security official testifying to Congress last March, the government has sought roving wiretap authority in about 20 cases a year between 2001 and 2010 and has sought warrants for business records less than 40 times a year, on average. The government has yet to use the lone wolf authority.

But the ACLU also points out that court approvals for business record access jumped from 21 in 2009 to 96 last year, and the organization contends the Patriot Act has blurred the line between investigations of actual terrorists and those not suspected of doing anything wrong.

Two Democratic critics of the Patriot Act, Sen. Ron Wyden of Oregon and Udall of Colorado, on Thursday extracted a promise from Senate Intelligence Committee chairman Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., that she would hold hearings with intelligence and law enforcement officials on how the law is being carried out.

At the site of the 9/11 memorial, a forum is being held called, "9/11 Conspiracy Theories: Why They Exist and What Role They Play in Society."

Link to RSVP (YOU MUST RSVP BEFORE EVENT)
http://www.911memorial.org/events/911-conspiracy-theories-why-they-exist-and-what-role-they-play-society

"Professors Kathryn Olmsted and Michael Barkun address broader questions of why conspiracy theories exist and how they should be viewed in the context of post-9/11 communities. Both have written books on the subject and will discuss the psychological underpinnings of these theories, their historical roles in shaping public opinion and how we should view or evaluate their relevance today".

Here's a video of Prof. Olmsted talking about her book on Conspiracy's.

Jesse Goes Space Beams

I had a bad feeling about this.

I'm on the train listening to Jesse Ventura lose the last of his mainstream 9/11 credibility on Alex Jones.

About a month ago, Richard Hoagland was a guest on Coast to Coast, and he was thrilled that he had sent Dr. Judy Woods book to the other cast member of Predator who's held office, Jesse Ventura. I was hoping Jesse would lose it somewhere in Mexician surf. Alas that's not the case. Today he came out for spacebeams.

Today on the Alex Jones show, Jesse came out in favor of Dr. Judy Woods "microwave" theory.
Alex doesn't exactly call him out, but you can feel Alex discomfort.

I'll post the video when I get home, or maybe someone can in the comments.

Sigh.

QUESTIONS ABOUT DR. STEVEN PIECZENIK by Joel Skousen

(http://www.worldaffairsbrief.com)
partial quote
…...

"His most attractive claim, which is irresistible for believers in conspiracy, is that 9/11 was a false flag operation--which is true. But, for such a smart guy, he can't seem to come to any logical conclusions that leads him to suspect there is systematic evil lurking deep in the government that is capable of doing such an act. To him this seems to be something "new" and disturbing. But without the proper and broader implications of the 9/11 attack, which point to a much larger conspiracy against liberty, his charges are shallow.

MIKE RUPPERT German radio interview a week before Barack Obama announced the killing of OBL.

The German radio interview which follows was recorded approximately a week before Barack Obama announced the killing of OBL.

Dr. Steve R. Pieczenik "OBL died from marfan syndrome in late 2001"

"For over an hour yesterday, Dr. Steve Pieczenik told the Alex Jones Show how Bin Laden, whom he personally met, died from marfan syndrome in late 2001, and how the entire account of his supposed murder on Sunday is a total fabrication and an insult to the intelligence of the American people.

He returned to the show again today to re-iterate the fact that the entire war on terror is a complete fraud based on the lie that 9/11 was anything other than an inside job.

9/11 TRUTH: Hollywood Speaks Out (2011 Bill Pullman Trailer)

!!! COMING TO YOUTUBE JUNE 9, 2011 !!!

A Decade After 9/11, Hollywood Is Ready To Speak Out.

Are You Ready To Listen?

DISCLAIMER:

This film is NOT about the RESPECTABILTY or CREDIBILTY of any one person (celebrity or not). If I wanted that, I would have made a boring film about the dozen or so ACADEMICALLY ACCREDITED scientests who have actually tested the World Trade Center dust and found UN-EXPLODED military grade NANO-THERMITE.

This film is about Hollywood's GUT FEELING that something is just not right, and the dozens of UNASWERED QUESTIONS they have - like why, after 7 years, did NIST finally have to admit WTC7 fell at FREE FALL SPEED?

"How the World Works" with Barack Obama

 

www.rawstory.com/rawreplay/2011/04/obama-on-bradley-manning-he-broke-the-law/

 

“I can’t conduct diplomacy on an open source. That’s not how…the world works. If you’re in the military, and — I have to abide by certain classified information. If I was to release stuff that I’m not authorized to release, I’m breaking the law…We’re a nation of laws. We don’t individually make our own decisions about how the laws operate… He broke the law.”

Matt Taibbi "Justice Department Has No AppetiteTo Take ANY Cases Against .."

NIST?

Wall Street Executives.

It's funny how the mind works.

On the one hand, Taibbi reports proof of illegal malfeasance and corruption from a group that is beyond Justice Department procedure, something that is beyond dispute.

One the other hand, 9/11 Activists are kooks for asking questions about associations and strategic placement of actors in a global ponzi.

Useful idiot indeed.

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed To Face Military Tribunal

Khalid Sheikh Mohammed To Face Military Tribunal

PETE YOST 04/ 4/11 12:48 PM ET

WASHINGTON — Professed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and four alleged co-conspirators are being referred to the system of military commissions for trial, a federal law enforcement official said Monday.

The decision by the Obama administration is an about-face from earlier plans to have the five go on trial in civilian federal court in New York, which created intense political opposition among Republicans and even some Democrats, particularly in New York.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity about the switch, which Attorney General Eric Holder was expected to announce at an afternoon news conference.

Republican critics have roundly assailed the administration, first for the decision in late 2009 to try the men in New York City, then for a long delay in making a decision on whether to have them face military commission justice instead.

The UN, Israel-Palestine and 9/11 Scholarship: A Discussion with Prof. Richard Falk

Dr. Richard Falk is Professor Emeritus of International Law at Princeton University. He is the author, co-author or editor of about three dozen scholarly books. In 2008 Professor Falk was appointed to a six-year term as Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian Territories occupied since 1967. Professor Falk has been attacked recently by UN Watch, by UN General-Secretary, Ban Ki-moon, and by the US Ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice. In this discussion, Professor Falk gives his assessment of the political context of the criticisms he is facing for identifying Israeli crimes in the treatment of Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank, and for referring positively to the scholarly contributions of Professor David Ray Griffin and other academics who have identified serious shortcomings in government and mainstream media interpretations concerning the contested events of 9/1
