The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) will inspect Iran’s under-construction nuclear energy refinement facility on Sunday, October 25. The US public has been subjected to war-mongering propaganda from both parties’ “leadership” and the media oligarchy over this issue, which has a simple legal basis. This article will serve as a hub for my legal and political analysis to date regarding rhetoric for war with Iran. Below are linked titles with one-paragraph summaries. Most articles have helpful video. Following is an outstanding 3-minute analysis from John Perry.

Declaring independence from US psychopathocracy: disobey unlawful orders to kill Iranians: I’d like to point to two excellent columns among hundreds in agreement with my article that the American people have been duped into Hitlerian Wars of Aggression, with new beguilement to include the killing of Iranians. First, Paul Craig Roberts was Assistant Secretary of the Treasury during President Reagan’s first term. He was Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal. He has held numerous academic appointments, including the William E. Simon Chair, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Georgetown University, and Senior Research Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University. His article, “Another war in the works” gives the following prelude before laying out the facts that Iran is in complete compliance with the law while the US is in complete violation.

Iran's Nuclear Program: Iran truthful, in treaty compliance; US/Israel lying, in treaty violation: The title is of this article is alarming, and accurate. It will brief you on:

· the treaty that manages Iran’s nuclear program,
· the status of compliance with Iran, the US with the UK and now France, and Israel,
· analysis for the disinformation delivered by the US, UK, France, Israel.

An attack on Iran from US and/or Israel is a WAR OF AGGRESSION: Thousands of mainstream media articles are discussing a US and/or Israel attack of Iran. They discuss “inevitable conflict,” “crippling sanctions against Iran,” “Iran getting the bomb,” “Israel acting in its own defense,” “Iran attacking American targets,” and Iran’s scary-sounding “nuclear program.” Let’s review the facts and the law, with these topics explained in detail through the links.

Military & Govt. oath: Defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC: Here’s the short and sweet point: once the facts of our government’s “leaders” are revealed (and you’d damn better do your research if you call yourself a citizen), then every man and woman who’s sworn an oath to protect and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and DOMESTIC, must act to incapacitate those who violate the Constitution. Laws are supposed to be as easy to understand as rules in sports because they’re meant to be obeyed. The US currently has fascist policies such as invading countries who pose no threat, torture, indefinite imprisonment, $2.3 trillion of our dollars “missing” from the Department of Defense: these are OBVIOUS violations against the Constitution that kills millions and destroys the joy of life from the rest of us.

Abraham Lincoln on unconstitutional US wars of invasion: courageously standing against OBVIOUS lies: Most people do not know that Abraham Lincoln is a hero for his acts as a freshman member of the House of Representatives in the Congress of 1847-1849. Lincoln demanded that the President of the US provide specific evidence justifying the US invading a foreign country, suspecting that the President’s claims of a defensive war were lies to propagandize an offensive war for territorial control against a weaker nation. He did so despite the lack of support from most of his own political party. He demanded the facts despite his being painted by political opponents and the press as “unpatriotic.” The propaganda defeated Lincoln at his next election; his name slurred as “spotty Lincoln.” We now know that Lincoln was correct that the US President had indeed lied about the cause of war.

What to do with US traitors who wage Wars of Aggression? 1: Truth & Reconciliation. 2: Prosecution. A traitor is one with allegiance to the US who wages war against the United States. Lying the American public into war that takes trillions in long-term costs and kills over 5,000 US troops is treason. US political “leaders” who wage illegal and horrific Wars of Aggression, the worst crime a nation can commit, are actively attacking our Constitution and values. Neither political party will prosecute these crimes. So what do we do? Offer Truth and Reconciliation.

9/11: Support our troops by ending these illegal wars: If you do not know the two simple laws of when a nation may attack another, you are NOT being a responsible citizen. There are not many laws responsible citizens MUST understand, but committing our troops into harm's way, sending our flag and reputation oversees, spending billions of our collective dollars ($3 to $5 trillion long-term), and causing suffering and death through collateral damage to MILLIONS of civilians demands your informed civic voice.
Are US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan well-intended mistakes? What we now know from the evidence: If there was credible evidence of imminent threat to US national security, then the wars were justified under the UN Charter for self-defense. However, if the evidence was not credible, or fabricated, then these wars are illegal Wars of Aggression. So which is it?

George Washington's advice to YOU on defending the US Constitution today: After 45 years of service to the newly created United States, George Washington published a message to the American people. This is the summation of his observations and what he most wanted to contribute to Americans' understanding of defending our Constitutional government.

Strategy for national security: Department of Peace or Wars on Terror? How about a Department of Peace to contribute to national security strategy in addition to the Department of War Defense? Let’s consider our government's argument that the US military's use of force after invading other countries that did not attack us is an effective strategy for our national security. And then let’s step outside the box of war, and consider the potential contribution that a Department of Peace might make for US national security.

Understanding corruption and our appropriate response through a Pingu cartoon: In the cartoon, consider our human condition of recognizing corruption when it is not readily apparent, appropriate outrage, intelligent action to isolate the criminal, and the ideal outcome of Truth and Reconciliation.

Best video explaining Constitutional limits of power: I teach US Government. Every curriculum of what America means (America is a political distinction) includes these principles: limited government and rule under the law. Unlimited government is a dictatorship, literally whatever the government dictates (says) at any particular time. The idea of everyone playing by the rules is also critical. Without it, we have an elitist oligarchy. As I've documented in previous articles, the US is now under key policies that are unlimited by the US Constitution; meaning the dictate of a collusion of our two political parties' "leadership." The best teaching tool I've come across in my 25 years of teaching is the following 10-minute video.

Abraham Lincoln on defending the US Constitution: his message to YOU today: Given that these are Wars of Aggression, that our Constitutional rights have been destroyed through torture, the 2006 Military Commissions Act accepted by Mr. Obama that allows the President to slur American citizens as “unlawful enemy combatants” and detain them forever without rights, Mr. Obama's defense of a War of Aggression in Afghanistan, and further rhetoric for war with Iran (and here), how would Abraham Lincoln advise you today? We have a pretty good idea, as follows.

Waking people from tranquilized obviousness: the paradox of patience in an emergency: The recognition of facts, even when in plain sight, is challenging. Res ipsa loquitur, the facts do speak for themselves, but getting people to notice may not be easy. Joshua Bell, one of the world’s elite violinists whose CDs Romance of the Violin sold over 5 million copies, played for 45 minutes at an entrance to a Washington, D.C. subway during rush hour. Hardly anyone stopped. The reporting of this phenomenon by Washington Post writer Gene Weingarten won a Pulitzer.

Endless and contrived US wars against "communism" and "terror": what are we really buying? Let's take a moment to look at our last war against an ideology and compare with our current ideological war with particular focus on how much of our funding is vanishing, even according to our own Department of Defense records.

ENDING US Wars of Aggression: advice from 20th Century heroes and villains: Senator Lieberman, Secretary of State Clinton, and former UN Ambassador John Bolton have resumed rhetoric of a United States attack upon Iran. As my other articles have demonstrated, that rhetoric is false and intentional propaganda attempting to justify another US War of Aggression. Americans respectfully look to history in admiration of the founders of this nation. May I point out that they are patriots BECAUSE THEY ACTED FOR A NEW GOVERNMENT WHEN THAT GOVERNMENT BROKE THEIR COUNTRY’S CONSTITUTION, or more accurately, the rights expected for the governed. Let’s look at some 20th century statements pointing to what we really have with government propaganda and how we might respond.

ENDING US Wars of Aggression: advice from our forefathers: Let’s consider the wisdom of Americans we all look to for guidance on American principles and courage: our founding fathers, Abraham Lincoln, and up to Teddy Roosevelt. If you respect their contributions to American ideals of freedom and Constitutional rights, please give each of them a few minutes of your attention to consider their reflections.

US Wars of Aggression: cost in money and lives: This title is self-explanatory.

Cognitive dissonance, Hitler size US war lies, and Truth & Reconciliation: In psychology, “cognitive dissonance” is defined as the understandable human response of rejecting difficult facts and instead choosing to believe a pleasant fantasy. The preponderance of Americans are suffering from cognitive dissonance regarding current US wars and many related topics. I’ll end this brief article with Hitler’s own explanation.

Wars of Aggression: Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran: Senator Lieberman, Secretary of State Clinton, and former UN Ambassador John Bolton have resumed rhetoric of a United States attack upon Iran. This article will define “War of Aggression” and explain when a war is justifiable under US and international law. Laws are meant to be understood and obeyed. Among the most important for governments and citizens to understand is when war is authorized, and when responses other than war are required. If we wish to call ourselves civilized, we MUST understand the rule of law before we threaten a nation for destruction, death, and cruel physical, emotional and mental agony.

War with Iran: oil, lies and evil: The focus of this article is to explore US interest in having a war with Iran.

Iran and "wiping Israel off the map": Wikipedia admits to “controversy” over the interpretation of Iranian President Ahmadinejad’s meaning of an October, 2005 speech.[1] However, Wikipedia doesn’t mention the context within which it was spoken to help our understanding. In his speech, Ahmadinejad was discussing how people once thought it was impossible to remove the Shah as Iran’s dictator, but it was done. He then said that people thought the Soviet government and Saddam’s government would never fall. He then quoted Ayatollah Khomeini’s words from speeches he gave encouraging Iran’s persistence to oppose the Shah’s government that translate awkwardly into English as, “erase from the page of time.” Unless Khomeini and Ahmadinejad were advocating for the destruction of their own country, the speech’s meaning is to encourage the Iranian people to persist for change in Israel’s government.[2] Again, please don’t believe me. Look at the evidence; read the speech. If you have Persian friends as I do, talk with them to gain their perspective of the discrepancy between our government and major media reporting of the meaning of the speech and what Ahmadinejad actually said. My Persian friends are understandably outraged by US threats to attack Iran, and frightened that what has happened in Iraq will happen to their friends and families in Iran.

Iran, nuclear weapons, nuclear energy and the law: the Non-Proliferation Treaty[5] (NPT) was designed to limit nuclear weapon development, facilitate availability of nuclear energy, and lead to global nuclear disarmament. The treaty allows any country to develop nuclear material for energy, receive the assistance of the nuclear countries to do so (US, UK, France, Russia, and China), and then be inspected by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to verify they do not refine fissionable material beyond energy-grade (3-5%) to weapons-grade (over 85%). To date, no NPT country with a nuclear energy program has developed nuclear weapons. Iran and the US are signatories of NPT. Therefore, the legal and Constitutional US response is to help Iran develop nuclear energy.

sugarcoated 9/11 truth with map added at the end

here at 911blogger were in a hard core of researchers of a certain set of topics- it might seem repetitive to send a simple message to the public but i believe someone completely new to this needs a hook- a pretty face, a catchline, a videogenic clip

Enough of the Farrakhan already

Nearly every post on blogger is being spammed by Douglas Hilton

Farrakhan as far as I'm concerned is a charismatic leader, his information is culled from many sources including far right racists, personally I don't need charismatic leaders and I'll do my own research, we are our own leaders, this kind of worship is what we, the human race, should be moving away from in our (r)evolution.

Ok Doug you've made your point (too many times IMO) it's getting boring.
