No-Fly Zones, Attack on Press, Ushers in New Brutal
Police State Tactics

“The problem, U.S. counter-terrorism and intelligence officials tell The Daily Beast, is that there are just so many jihadists with Western passports traveling to fight in Syria that they worry some of them may slip back into the United States without being detected,”
He then quotes Matthew Olsen, the director of the National Counter-Terrorism Center, who told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in March hundreds of terrorists have Western passports and they “could return to their home countries to commit violence on their own initiative or participate in al Qaeda-directed plots.”
CIA’s Saudi Visa Mill
Prior to the September 11, 2001, attack the CIA arranged passports and visas for veterans of its covert war in Afghanistan. This was confirmed by the former head of the American visa bureau in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, Michael Springman, who told then BBC journalist Greg Palast in November, 2001, he “was repeatedly ordered by high level State Dept officials to issue visas to unqualified applicants” who were allowed to enter the United States.
“What I was protesting was, in reality, an effort to bring recruits, rounded up by Osama Bin Laden, to the US for terrorist training by the CIA. They would then be returned to Afghanistan to fight against the then-Soviets,” Springman said.
Springman talked about this CIA terrorist visa factory with Alex Jones in February, 2010:
Months before the September 11 attacks Shayna Steinger, a consular official, issued 12 visas to the alleged hijackers at the consulate in Jeddah. A State Department memo states Steinger issued 11 visas to the hijackers, but one additional visa was issued by a second consular officer.
Terrorists Trained by the U.S. Military
Earlier this week, Aaron Klein, reporting for WorldNetDaily, revealed that members of ISIS fighting against the al-Assad government in Syria were trained by U.S. military instructors in Jordan. According to Jordanian officials, the trainees “were first vetted for any links to extremist groups like al-Qaida.”
ISIS emerged from the ranks of al-Qaeda in Iraq and is considered more militant and extremist than al-Qaeda.
Following the attacks of September 11, 2001, it was reported – and subsequently relegated to the memory hole – that a number of the purported hijackers were “trained in strategy and tactics” at the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida, and the Air War College in Montgomery, Alabama, according to Newsweek.
CIA Created Terrorists
The CIA has a long history of hands-on experience with terrorists who have allegedly attacked the United States. Ramzi Yousef, the supposed mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the planned Bojinka attack, was recruited by the CIA and fought with the Mujahideen in Afghanistan.
Ali Mohamed, a major in the Egyptian army recruited by the CIA,
“trained most of al-Qaeda’s top leadership – including bin Laden and [Ayman] al-Zawahiri – and most of al-Qaeda’s top trainers. Mohamed taught surveillance, counter-surveillance, assassinations, kidnapping, codes, ciphers and other intelligence techniques,”
U.S. prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald told the 9/11 Commission in 2004. “For five years he was moving back and forth between the US and Afghanistan.”
“It’s impossible the CIA thought he was going there as a tourist. If the CIA hadn’t caught on to him, it should be dissolved and its budget used for something worthwhile,” Nabil Sharef, a university professor and former Egyptian intelligence officer, told The Wall Street Journal in November, 2001.
Returning members of ISIS, now hyped as the next wave of domestic terror, are not tourists, either. If, as predicted by a range of offcials, including Rep. Peter King and Sen. Lindsey Graham, ISIS attacks inside America it will be part of a larger plan to expand and extend the war on terror and put the finishing touches on the surveillance and police state in America.
This apparatus is not designed to protect against al-Qaeda or ISIS terrorists. The purpose is to spy on the American people, who are the real enemy, and make certain they cannot effectively challenge the political monopoly of the global elite.

How about his Six Monsanto people, his Secret Kill Lists, his NDAA which Carl Levin, on the floor of the Senate said that Obama pressured him to keep it in the bill? How about the opening up of Africom as a War Front, and calling it humanitarian? How about he and Kerry lobbying for an attack on Syria, potentially WWIII?
How about all the droning with Nazi V2 Drones, the torture of Chelsea Manning, the record amount of Whistleblowers prosecuted, us all being data mined and tapped, the completion of the NSA SuperSpy Center in Utah, the microphones in municipal buses, “border” checkpoints 100 miles from the border, renewing the Patriot Act for 4 years?
How about receiving the Nobel Peace Prize, and now the Shoah Humanitarian prize from Steven Spielberg, while John McCain, as a Fascist Avatar for Obama in Ukraine, visited the Neo-Nazi “rebels” we support there..McCain, as part of his “Fascist Greatest Hits” tour, previously visited Syria, where he posed with the head “rebel” there..who is AL QUAEDA.
Who IS Jay Rockefeller? Until recently, he was head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, where secrets are bottled up from Americans in the Name of National Security. Occupying that spot now is Dianne Feinstein, the richest APPARENT member of Congress (Rockefeller is, back to that in a moment). Jay Rockefeller is the Senior Rockefeller now, David is mostly doddering now. A tip of the iceberg family holding is JP Morgan/Chase Bank..notice how a Chase Bank is opening up on every corner? David Rockefeller founded and funded organizations which promoted and got passed GATT, NAFTA, CAFTA….and he co-founded the Trilateral Commission with Zbigniew.
Jay Rockefeller is promoting the Race Card to Balkanize us so that we don’t look at the reality of this government..don’t fall for it.

The “rebels” we supported in Libya were Radical Islamists, including Al Quaeda..and they run the place now. That fact alone puts the lie to the War on “Terror”. We airlifted a bunch of them to Syria, and John McCain, who shows up in Syria and then the Ukraine, is our number one Republican Fascist..and he shows up there posing with a Syrian “Rebel” leader…who turns out to be Al Quaeda. McCain shows up as a representative of Obama and this government. They think we are stupid..and if you watch Mainstream Media, or read the NY Times….you are.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden’s son was just appointed to the Board of Ukraine’s largest Gas Company, and the people feeding us propaganda think you are so stupid that when Jay Carney says that Biden is a “private citizen” and when the White House says “Joe Biden does not endorse this”…they think you will be stupid enough to not realize this for the corruption it is, while telling many that only Republicans are corrupt.
It used to be, as outlined in The Shock Doctrine and in Economic Hitmen, that only Third World countries were in the gunsights of the IMF/World Bank/CIA…now, it is First World countries. Look to Detroit as the model of the first city taken down by Globalist Fascist interests, and note that GM cars are made in South America, Russia, China..and not so much here anymore. Pensions, Unions, Health Care ruined when Obama, in a Mussolini move, “saved” the auto industry by throwing them into a bankruptcy, pre-packaged, which took 45 days to complete, a record for such a large bankruptcy. Bankruptcy Lawyers are still scratching their heads trying to figure out how that happened so fast. Also note that Detroit needed 20B to save it, and that we are launching three aircraft carriers which have a total price tag of 52 BILLION Dollars. Chrysler is in the hands of the Agnelli Family, Fiat, in Greece, Agnellis being the good Friends of Henry Kissinger. Detroit is a ruined city. Get ready for more….This is CFR Thomas Friedman’s Flat Earth, in which his job was to justify the Feudalism/Serfdom which is coming to all countries.
Jobs under Republicans and Democrats have been shipped overseas, and the only new jobs created, for the most part, are minimum wage jobs. McDonalds workers, WalMart workers…they need welfare.
The saying used to be “As goes GM, so goes the Nation.” That was when GM was the largest employer in the country. Now, the largest Employer is WalMart, and we know what happens to THEIR employees. “As goes WalMart, so goes the country”….a frightening thought.
Give yourself a real graduation present: cut the interest on your student loans to 0.75%!
Make sure your commencement ceremony helps to pass S.897, Senator Elizabeth Warren’s Bank On Students Loan Fairness Act!
As every college student knows, the crushing burden of student loan debt poses the single greatest obstacle to anyone seeking a good education. An undergraduate degree frequently means $30,000-$50,000 and up in debt. An advanced degree starts at twice that, and medical and law degrees can saddle the student with six-figure loans. For the nation as a whole, student loan debt is a social crisis set to exceed $1 trillion. Interest rates vary, but they are always far too high for young people starting out in life. And things are scheduled to get worse, with the interest rate on one key type of student loan set to double from 3.4% to 6.8% on July 1. A whole generation of young people is being forced to put their lives on hold, prevented by high interest debt from continuing their schooling, from renting or buyinga home, from getting married and having children. This is simply intolerable.
At the same time, Wall Street banks can borrow from the Federal Reserve Discount Window for a mere 0.75%. That’s right – just three quarters of 1%. Why should students be crushed when the bankers who caused the present economic crisis with their wild and irresponsible derivatives speculation get a sweetheart deal?
Fortunately, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has now offered a bill – S.897, the Bank on Students Loan Fairness Act – which would force the Federal Reserve to fund federal Stafford loans through the US Department of Education at an annual interest rate of just 0.75%; the discount rate the Fed offers banks. Do the arithmetic and you can easily figure out how much interest this bill will save you every year. But this bill faces an uphill battle to become law, since it is likely to be opposed by Wall Street lobbyists, the congressional leadership of both parties, and by the Obama White House. The only hope for the Warren bill lies in a massive outpouring of support, starting with the graduation ceremonies of the classof 2013. That means a big part of your economic destiny is now in your hands.
Graduation ceremonies are often marked by boring platitudes from overpaid and cynical celebrities. But now you can use your graduation day as a springboard to cutting your monthly loan payment.
Make sure in advance that your commencement speaker is going to deliver a stirring call to make Senator Warren’s bill into law right now, before July 1. If your current speaker won’t actively support the bill, fire them and find a speaker who will. Your college or university president knows better than anybody what a huge problem student loan indebtedness represents for individual borrowers and for the country. They need to actively organize to support the Warren bill. If they refuse, then something is very wrong. The same goes for the rich fat cats who often sit on boards of trustees. If they can’t support Senator Warren, they are not interested in higher education. Influential professors should be encouraged to come forward as public spokespersons for Senator Warren’s approach. Use your college radio and newspapers to alert the entire student body. And don’t forget to mobilize debt-ridden recent alumni coming back for reunions.
Plan to have your commencement ceremony pass a strong resolution demanding the immediate passage of the Warren bill. Make sure this resolution goes to the relevant congressmen and senators, along with the demand that they co-sponsor Senator Warren’s measure and get more votes for it. If they drag their feet, assure them that they will soon be voted out of office. On more militant campuses, it may be appropriate to demonstrate or to occupy a building and stay there until the Warren bill is signed into law by Obama. Make sure you tell the local media in advance. The general public will be with you on this one.
Senator Warren would also benefit from feedback. All of her arguments in favor of a Fed-assisted 0.75% interest rate on Stafford loans apply to all other categories of student loans as well. Everyone without exception should be able to refinance at 0.75%, including holders out of Perkins loans, Federal Direct Student Loans, and Plus Loans taken out by parents. The Department of Education must be given the means to re- finance all private student loans at the new lower rate.
This may be your only chance to help Senator Warren cut the interest rates you will be paying for a long time. The end of the semester is coming soon. If you let this chance slip by, you will have only yourself to blame.
