The Patriot Act is up for renewal. Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Richard Burr says we must renew as we are in more danger than ever.
He is right about the danger part. All the US efforts since Desert Storm have made the Middle East go from mildly bad to incredible disaster.
The Patriot Act and its FBI, DHS, CIA, NSA enablers have been a complete failure in bringing peace. A figure I heard on the Scott Horton show (Philip Giraldi interview) was 2 million dead in the war on terror. Read the rest of this entry »

FIB Rule Number Three-Get convictions
Rule Number one-Do nothing to embarrass the bureau
Rule Number two-Do not violate rule one
Justice for the innocent and arresting the guilty are somewhat further down the list.
The recent string of sting operations against FIB coerced, half-wit “terrorists” being portrayed as investigative success stories illustrates the level of government honesty and integrity for which we are paying.
Now comes this Guardian story where the FIB admits their famous hair analysis technique is completely worthless.
In July 2013, the FBI admitted that the foundations of what it called “hair comparison evidence”…were scientifically invalid. Read the rest of this entry »

I am always amazed when someone says: “I haven’t done anything wrong. I have nothing to fear.” If you have nothing to fear from the government, why did the Founding Fathers put the protections in the Constitution that Bush and Obama have stripped out? Unlike the Founding Fathers who designed our government to protect the citizens, the American sheeple trust the government to their own demise.
In the famous play, “A Man For All Seasons,” Sir Thomas More, Chancellor of England, asks: So, you would have me to cut down the law in order to chase after devils? And what will we do, with the law cut down, when the devil turns on us?
From Paul Craig Roberts here.
I too wonder what people aren’t thinking when they say “it will never happen to me”.
The patriot act is used more for drug arrests than terrorism arrests. Who knows what flimsy excuse is being made to invade our privacy to justify an arrest. You have to remember all these spy agencies and as well as the DHS, FBI, DEA, ATF have to justify their existence. That means arrests. Pay raises and promotions depend on it. Actual guilt is a secondary consideration.

This was obviously an election year dog and pony show. No honest evaluation of the Secret Agreement is available. The administration did more jukes and jives than OJ Simpson when describing what the Secret Agreement contained. The article in the 2 May Erie Times is from the Associated Press. It is drivel, spoon fed by the administration. Let’s take it point by point.
The US commits to supporting Afghanistan’s etc, etc. This means you and I are bankrolling fiascos and lining the pockets of a world-class corrupt government. Throwing good money, ten years worth, after bad is what government does best. The US does this better this anyone. “Commitment” sounds Samaritan-like. The sheeple will buy in.

The people I read have said David Ignatius is the government’s mouthpiece. I haven’t read much of his work, but today’s column in the Erie Times News has me convinced. Ignatius could have written the script for the Arab ambassador murder plot. Read the rest of this entry »

The CIA and Pentagon have become “partners” as the government issued news scripts tell us. What does that tell us about the tilt of information fed to the Pentagon and us. The Pentagon’s reason to exist is to kill people and break things. Who best keep to provide them with reasons to stay in business than their brothers in the CIA? Read the rest of this entry »
