“If a bunch of people get together and say the world is flat, NASA does not have to engage them.
There have been DOZENS of engineering studies done on how the Towers collapsed. All by private engineering firms, groups, etc. Guess how many studies 9/11 Truth has done on how a top down synchronized demo is done? Guess? In 12 years, how many? ZERO. Why? Because that is nuts.”
When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe."
Such government by thieves is a kleptocracy; such a kleptocratic government is manipulated by corporate interests, and functions mostly as ceremonial government that is unaccountable to its nation
The national legislature is, in effect, for sale
Influential government employees illegitimately exploit their posts for personal gain (by embezzlement, fraud, bribery, etc.), and the resulting government budget deficit is repaid by the country's working people who earn wages rather than making profits
Oligarchy "new" Rule is upon us and oh so cleverly the state needed an enemy in (Snowden) to focus the people's anger against so they didn't get mad at the state”

Cass Sunstein, an Obama friend and former regulatory czar, advocated an approach for governments to fight the problem of "conspiracy theories" that help erode confidence in central governments.
Ironically, he advocates govenrments utilize clandestine operations to infiltrate groups that are suspicious of the government party line
"What can government do about conspiracy theories? Among the things it can do, what should it do? We can readily imagine a series of possible responses. (1) Government might ban conspiracy theorizing. (2) Government might impose some kind of tax, financial or otherwise, on those who disseminate such theories. (3) Government might itself engage in counterspeech, marshaling arguments to discredit conspiracy theories. (4) Government might formally hire credible private parties to engage in counterspeech. (5) Government might engage in informal communication with such parties, encouraging them to help. Each instrument has a distinctive set of potential effects, or costs and benefits, and each will have a place under imaginable conditions. However, our main policy idea is that government should engage in cognitive infiltration of the groups that produce conspiracy theories, which involves a mix of (3), (4) and (5). "
“Yeah? So what's the point in this link? If you're trying to show me that the Taliban are a bunch of terrorists who think they can get people to bend to the will of their way with the threat of killing - I already knew that. I've been to Afghanistan 6 times over the last 3 years and am well aware of what the Taliban is capable of. They're terrorists and have been killing innocent people for years - long before the drone strikes started. The Taliban have killed far more innocent civilians than drone strikes have so I find it somewhat hypocritical that they would use this as a reason for retaliation. On my trip to Kabul back in March of this year we had an insurgent IED blow up under one of our vehicles injuring 3 people severely. On a previous trip in May of last year, a Taliban attack on Green Village left 7 civilians dead - including 2 school children. I've stayed at Green Village on 4 separate occasions. Finally, on another trip the Taliban attacked the US Embassy in Kabul as well as attacked in four other locations in the city including a school bus filled school girls and indiscriminate RPGs being fired from Massoud Circle at the Embassy grounds.”
The Obama administration is responsible for at least 18,274 air strikes in Afghanistan since 2009, including at least 1,160 by pilotless drones.
The U.S. conducted at least 116 air strikes in Iraq in 2009 and about 1,460 of NATO's 7,700 strikes in Libya in 2011.
While the U.S. military does not publish figures on "secret" air and drone strikes in other countries, press reports detail a five-fold increase over Bush's second term, with at least 303 strikes in Pakistan, 125 in Yemen and 16 in Somalia.
Aside from the initial bombing of Afghanistan in 2001 and the "shock and awe" bombing of Iraq in March and April 2003, the Obama administration has conducted more air strikes day-in day-out than the Bush administration.
Bush's roughly 24,000 air strikes in seven years from 2002 to 2008 amounted to an air strike about every 3 hours, while Obama's 20,130 in four years add up to one every 1-3/4 hours.”

“Thanks for the out of context, mindless copy and paste job, pumpkin. Now go back to your blog.”
“...that's exactly why they like your thought process - easier to control
Obama was picked and groomed before hand by the elite
He was sold as the alternative to Bush
They knew people were fed up with the 8 years Bush administration and that a good Republican was unlikely to win a presidental race.
So, "what to do?" SIMPLE, you bring on an alternative who would talk a game of "Change"
➡➡ yet a man who would double down on the Bush agenda, while selling the liberals and democrats his false agenda
Throw them a bone or two that really benefited other interests, like Health Insurance Companies under the guise of a fake health cae reform bill - The Health Insurance plan itself was written by the Insurance Industry Lobby. Quite frankly, no word got into the law that was no either written or approved by the major Health Insurance Executive Boards
Meanwhile - Obama is doubling down on the police and secret police state at home
He has upped the military spending. upped the spy spending, upped the surveillance spending, and is poised to cut social benefit spending while feeding printed trillions to bankers and hedge funds via the Fed
