Leno Slams Regime Media (pka MSM) In Monologue: ‘Dangerous To WH If Journalists Start Asking Real Questions’ | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

LBN:

I sure wish the mainstream media would start asking real questions!!

 

Obama would never have won in 2008 if the media would have done it's job and stopped being a partisan, propaganda machine for the Democratic/communist party.

 

 

Do you support a recount of the 2012 election, but also unification of teaparty orgs,etc to take legal action against the mainstream propaganda media?? http://sco.lt/78C6c5  Click here and help me get at least 10,000 to take legal action against the media...it might be a long shot&tough fight but at least we can stir the pot and expose the media by demanding more journalist integrity and less unethical bias and propaganda.

Obama Slaps 3.5% Tax On Premiums In States That Don't Comply With Obamacare

Obama Slaps 3.5% Tax On Premiums In States That Don't Comply With Obamacare | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Residents of states that refuse to set up health insurance exchanges under Obamacare are set to be hit with higher premiums under new rules announced by the Health and Human Services Department.

 

Insurance companies will be charged 3.5 percent of any premiums they sell through the federal exchanges, the department announced Friday.

And insurers are likely to pass that surcharge on to clients, leaading to higher premiums.

 

The only states to be affected are those that refuse to set up their own exchanges because of opposition to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. They are almost certain to be those under Republican control. In those states, HHS will set up the exchanges

 

The regulations also show how the government plans to redistribute money to help insurers with expensive clients stay afloat, as Obamacare provides fees to help companies offset the costs of taking on numerous unhealthy patients. The Obama administration says the process is designed to make sure one insurance company doesn’t get stuck with an unhealthy risk pool.

Jon Smith's curator insight, December 21, 2012 5:00 PM

A good chunk of the states have refused to comply with some of obamacare’s provisions. The count of these states is now at 17. One thing they have been refusing to do is set up health insurance exchanges under obamacare. Now, insurance companies will be charged “3.5 percent of any premiums they sell through the federal exchanges.”

 

It does not say in the Constitution that everyone has a right to conformed, mediocre healthcare (which is or what Obamacare will inevitably become). What if I have a million dollars and I want to pay for a special surgery that I need that will correct the alignment of my leg (if I actually did need it). Obamacare will say no, you must go to the doctor we tell you. But what if I don’t want to? Well, that sucks for me. It’s the same with the insurance companies. Medical attention should be left to the states with federal interventoion allowed only in the most extreme cases since the Constitution give them that power. It doesn’t matter though, Obama is just going to bully to get what he wants since he is too worried about popularity and doing whatever he pleases. Eventually, the government might even tell us what we should eat and drink. Oh yeah, it already does (that soft drink law in New York).

New Version Of NDAA Makes It Easier To Detain Citizens Indefinitely??

New Version Of NDAA Makes It Easier To Detain Citizens Indefinitely?? | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
At first glance it looked like the 2013 version National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) did more to protect Americans against indefinite detention. We and several other news organizations reported as much yesterday.

 

But on closer examination the new NDAA actually makes it EASIER to detain citizens indefinitely.

Here’s the added clause in question:

 

“Nothing in the AUMF or the 2012 NDAA shall be construed to deny the availability of the writ of habeas corpus or to deny any Constitutional rights in a court ordained or established by or under Article III of the Constitution for any person who is lawfully in the United States when detained pursuant to the AUMF and who is otherwise entitled to the availability of such writ or such rights.”

 

Yesterday we focused on the line “nothing … shall be construed to deny … any constitutional Rights …”

 

But today we offer another interpretation from Bruce Afran, a lawyer for the group of journalists and activists suing the government over the 2012 NDAA.

 

Afran explained that the new provision gives U.S. citizens a right to go to civilian (i.e. Article III) court based on “any [applicable] constitutional rights,” but since there are are no rules in place to exercise this right, detained U.S. citizens currently have no way to gain access to lawyers, family or the court itself once they are detained within the military.

 

“The new statute actually states that persons lawfully in the U.S. can be detained under the Authorization for the Use of Military Force [AUMF]. The original (the statute we are fighting in court) never went that far,” Afran said. “Therefore, under the guise of supposedly adding protection to Americans, the new statute actually expands the AUMF to civilians in the U.S.”

 

The suit against the government challenges the indefinite detention provisions of section 1021 of the 2012 NDAA—which allow the military to indefinitely detain anyone who commits a “belligerent act” or provides “substantial support” to the Taliban, al-Qaeda or “associated forces”—on the grounds that certain terms were unconstitutionally vague and could chill free speech.

 

The newest version of the NDAA seems to be equating the AUMF and section 1021 of the 2012 NDAA—which the government has argued all along—and thereby codifies precisely what the plaintiffs are fighting in court.

 

The bottom line, according to Afran, is that the NDAA “is still unconstitutional because it allows citizens or persons in the U.S. to be held in military custody, a position that the Supreme Court has repeatedly held is unconstitutional.”

NYT:Oct 2, 2012 Liberal Maureen Dowd:Complicity in Duplicity--Even She Admits Obama Admin&Amb Rice Lied!

NYT:Oct 2, 2012 Liberal Maureen Dowd:Complicity in Duplicity--Even She Admits Obama Admin&Amb Rice Lied! | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Who’s cherry-picking now? Two different Rices, in two different administrations, spinning two different national security stories.

 

Comment:"The murder of Stevens... is the result of arming thugs to get rid of a hated dictator, failing to disarm them afterwards, and then throwing our hands up in shock and horror at the resulting bloody anarchy."
Nils Wetterlind, Stockholm, Sweden

 

LBN:

This commenter from Sweden included above has the issue pin pointed. The US, NATO led, support of the terrorists in Libya to overthrow Gaddaffi led to the death of Ambassador Stevens, after the US armed the 'rebels' against Gaddaffi and failed to keep track of the weapons or retrieve them, resulted in the death of four Americans! But, you don't hear the mainstream media talking about this issue or the fact that Obama illegally went into Libya without Congressional approval, yet DEMs have the nerve to say GWB did that when we went into Iraq, despite having Congressional approval.

 

Obama used NATO to go into Libya illegally&armed terrorists that killed Gaddaffi, that is not the Constitutional procedure for going to war against another country/government. But, he did it anyway. 

 

Arming and aiding terrorists to overthrow Gaddaffi also proved to be a fatal mistake and one I believe led to the murder of US Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans.

 

Nobody is asking the questions that should be answered, instead we are still three months later talking about who did what, when and why.

 

As others have said, we know more facts about Patreaus mistress than we do about the events that led up to the attack in Benghazi and who gave UN Ambassador Susan Rice the misleading talking points, even though she had access to the Presidential daily briefings which would have indicated there were continuous threats made my Al Qaeda and threats against the US Ambassadors life and other Western diplomats in the months prior to the attacks. 

 

We still don't know who denied the additional security before the 9/11/2012 attacks and we still don't know who told the CIA operatives, Glen Doherty and Tye Woods to stand down. 

 

What we do know is that the State Dept was responsible for providing proper security, but it was denied..by who we don't know.

 

The CIA was responsible for protecting their staff and providing backup support during the attack, but they told their operatives to stand down and the former SEALs risked their lives anyway, saving 32 other Americans from the consulate/mission and then dying under a mortar attack on the CIA annex up to six or seven hours later.

 

We still don't know who directly changed the intelligence talking points, the State Dept denies it, the CIA says they didn't, the WH says they didn't and UN Ambassador Rice says she only said what she was given from the intelligence agency/military,yet the talking points were provided to her by the White House, as Obama admitted to this in his first press conference in eight months. 

 

The bottom line is that Obama is the President and Commander in Chief and he is ultimately responsible for all actions taken by his administration or inaction. He admitted that he sent UN Ambassador Rice out to Sunday talk shows to repeat the misleading story that an unknown youtube video mocking Mohammed was the reason for the attacks, instead of saying that it was a terrorist attack as a result of failed security leading up to the attack. Of course to admit failure to secure the Ambassador and other Americans abroad would be admitting to dereliction of duty by Obama and that will never happen from a President who thinks he is the master of the universe and prince of peace. 

 

As even liberal colulmnist Maureen Dowd, of the NYT, even admits, the Obama administration failed and used political image making to make Obama's narrative that Al Qaeda was decimated after OBL's death for political gain before the election. 

 

She tries to compare this to the narrative used by Condelezza Rice when defending GWB for going into Iraq, however, GWB went into Iraq under Congressional approval and intelligence that said Sadaam had WMD and had bipartisan support from the DEM party, including Hillary Clinton at the time.

 

Here is an excerpt from Maureen Dowd's Oct 2, 2012 Column at the NYTs, which also points out that the Obama admin supplied weapons to the terrorists who overthrew&killed Gadaffi, yet you don't hear anything about this in the media, even from Republicans!:

Excerpt:

Accusations that intelligence on Al Qaeda links in the Middle East was cherry-picked by American officials to create a convenient reality.

A national security apparatus that becomes enmeshed with the political image-making machine.

Sound familiar?

 

Last time it was Condoleezza Rice helping her war-obsessed bosses spin their deceptive web, as they recklessly tried to re-engineer the Middle East. This time it was Susan Rice offering a noncredible yarn as the Obama team desperately tries to figure out the Middle East.

 

W.’s administration played up Al Qaeda ties, exploiting 9/11 to invade Iraq, which the neocons had wanted to do all along. The Obama administration sidestepped Al Qaeda ties in the case of the Libyan attack to perpetuate the narrative that the president had decimated Al Qaeda when Osama bin Laden was killed, and to preclude allegations that they were asleep at the switch on the anniversary of 9/11. Better to blame it all on a spontaneous protest to an anti-Islam video on YouTube.

 

It’s remarkable that President Obama, who came to power abhorring the manipulative and duplicitous tactics of the Bush crowd, should now be vulnerable to similar charges.

 

You know you’re in trouble when Donald Rumsfeld is the voice of reason. “The idea of sending a United Nations ambassador for the United States out to market and peddle and spin a story that has, within a matter of hours, demonstrated to be not accurate, I think is inexcusable,” the former defense secretary told Fox News on Tuesday. “I can’t imagine.”

 

His imagination fails him even though he, his pal Dick Cheney and his ward W. sent then-Secretary of State Colin Powell to the U.N. to market a story that fell apart one invasion later. Rumsfeld said that if the Obama administration’s critics are right, that perhaps officials were “bureaucratic and unwilling to respond promptly to a threat report.” Like when W. was unwilling to respond promptly to that threat report screaming “Bin Laden Determined to Strike in U.S.”?

 

There was something off-kilter about the tragic saga of Christopher Stevens from the beginning. Even for a highly regarded ambassador with a dash of Lawrence of Arabia’s empathy and mistaken sense of invulnerability, Stevens was obviously too lightly guarded in a region roiling with threats and hatred; he was in a susceptible complex without enough armed security and basic emergency equipment. Even afterward, the place was so unprotected that a CNN staffer could walk in and pick up Stevens’s private diary, which reflected the ambassador’s fear about never-ending attacks and being on an Al Qaeda hit list.

 

There were, after all, Al Qaeda sympathizers among the rebels who overthrew Muammar el-Qaddafi with American help.

But of course: Nancy Pelosi supports giving Obama unilateral debt ceiling authority

**Written by Doug Powers
This isn’t a surprise at all, especially considering that Pelosi not only believes there shouldn’t be a debt ceiling (during Democratic administrations only), but that having a debt limit is unconstitutional.

 

LBN:

If DEMs could have their way...which they just might get with our do nothing House of Representatives bending over backwards for the Obama admin, they would rather a dictatorship than a free republic. They claim to support democracy around the world, yet the type of Democracy they support ends up supporting tyrants&Islamists like Morsi in Egypt, Hamas in Gaza, and negotiations with Amanutjob in Iran. 

 

This admin is so weak on dealing with Islamic jihad and terrorism they don't even want to use the words. They have removed all references to Islamic terrorists from our military training manuals, fired Generals over using the terms and still refuse to call the Ft. Hood terror attack by Nidal Hasan an Islamic terrorist attack by a homegrown jihadist who was influenced and in contact with Anwar Alwalki, who Obama had killed with a drone strike in 2011, along with his American teen age son who had nothing to do with declaring jihad against the US.

United Nations Declares Contraception Access a "Human Right"

United Nations Declares Contraception Access a "Human Right" | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
In the United Nations Population Fund’s (UNFPA) recent State of World Population report, access to contraception is described as a “universal human right.” While the report has no legal force, it declares that cultural and financial barriers to...

 

LBN:

In that case, food is a human right...are we to pay for everyones food too??&house and medical care&clothes??When does the demand for providing for the needs of others end?? Those who don't want to work hard to pursue life, liberty and happiness are burdens on society and cause the government to become their nanny and create a dependent state. The more dependent on govt society becomes, the less productive they become and eventually the less stable the economy becomes.

 

Socialism/collectivism/redistribution of wealth have been tried for decades in other countries, you'd think the US would learn from the past and the mistakes of others. But, not Hussein Obama and his administration of czars&incompetents.

 

Well maybe they are not so incompetent as they are intentionally trying to overwhelm our financial system and economy and bring the US down from grace. They don't think the US should be exceptional but on equal ground with third world countries. They see the US as a powerful oppressor who has kept the poor down in other countries, rather than as a humanitarian provider. Yet, the US is always the first country refugees&immigrants run to when they try to escape oppression, socialism and communism.  See http://2016themove.com for the best comprehensive overview of what makes Obama tick and why he has such an anti-American, anti-colonialism ideology.

 

Under Obama and his anti-American administration and policies we will all become equally poor, because everyone needs to "pay their fair share".

Article examines the United Nation's believe that access to contraception is a "human right" and should not be denied.

Juliet Stanton's curator insight, November 18, 2014 10:10 PM

This article is arguing that it does not want the UNFPA to make access to contraceptives a human right, particularly for young women. However I disagree as I think that being protected from STIs is as important as having sufficient food, water and shelter, especially in places where these infections are quite common. This relates to the way that we have been talking about the importance of contraception when having sex, especially before marriage.

Charli Morelli's curator insight, November 21, 2014 2:04 AM

In this article it is brought to our attention the argument is; that it does not want the unfpa to make access to contraceptives a human right mainly for young women. although it is a hard argument to take sides on however i belive that having sufficient food and water is equally important as being protected from STIs. Expessially in places where infections such as this are more common. This relates to the way that we have been talking about the importance of contraception when having sex, especially before marriage.

City Attorney Tells San Bernardino Residents To ‘Lock Their Doors,’ ‘Load Their Guns’ Because Of Police Downsizing - CBS Los Angeles

City Attorney Tells San Bernardino Residents To ‘Lock Their Doors,’ ‘Load Their Guns’ Because Of Police Downsizing - CBS Los Angeles | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The city attorney of San Bernardino is under scrutiny for telling residents to “lock their doors and load their guns” during a city council meeting.

 

The official explained that because the city is bankrupt and slashing public safety budgets people will need to start protecting themselves.

City Attorney Jim Penman said he doesn’t regret what he said.

 

“You should say what you mean and mean what you say,” Penman said.

 

The city attorney said approximately 150 residents came to a council meeting to voice their concerns about recent crimes in the area, including the murder of an elderly woman last week.

 

“You could tell the swell of frustration was coming over a lot of folks. They did not feel like they could get an officer out as quickly to some of the quality-of-life issues that they were dealing with as they would have preferred,” said councilwoman Wendy McCommack, who organized the meeting and was present that night.

 

“Well, if I remember right, I told them to ‘lock their doors and load their guns,’” Penman said.

 

 

The city attorney said it’s important for people to be smart about protecting themselves and their families.

“I’m not advocating that people go out, who don’t have any training, and buy firearms. I certainly strongly caution anyone who has children at home not to have a loaded gun in the house,” Penman said.

 

LBN:

This is what happens when liberals run society,cities/states&countries...they go bankrupt and can't even protect their own people! Then you have crazy liberals who want to disarm Americans&deny them the right to protection&self defense.

Video:Obama Admin. Was Likely Running Arms To Islamic Jihadists Through Benghazi.

CHECK THIS LINK: http://beforeitsnews.com/home/recent/ "It appears that the Benghazi "consulate" wasn't really a consulate at all, but a station for funnelin...

 

 

November 3rd, 2012 JERUSALEM – The U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, actually served as a meeting place to coordinate aid for the rebel-led insurgencies in the Middle East, according to Middle Eastern security officials.

 

The U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, actually served as a meeting place to coordinate aid for the rebel-led insurgencies in the Middle East, according to Middle Eastern security officials.

 

Among the tasks performed inside the building was collaborating with Arab countries on the recruitment of fighters – including jihadists – to target Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria.

 

The distinction may help explain why there was no major public security presence at what has been described as a “consulate.” Such a presence would draw attention to the shabby, nondescript building that was allegedly used for such sensitive purposes.
Since the mission was attacked last month, countless news media reports around the world have referred to the obscure post as a U.S. consulate. That theme continues to permeate the media, with articles daily referencing a “consulate” in Benghazi.
U.S. officials have been more careful in their rhetoric while not contradicting the media narrative that a consulate was attacked.

 

In his remarks on the attack, President Obama has referred to the Benghazi post as a “U.S. mission.” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has similarly called the post a “mission.”

 

A consulate typically refers to the building that officially houses a consul, who is the official representatives of the government of one state in the territory of another.

Diplomatic missions, on the other hand, maintain a more generalized role. A diplomatic mission is simply a group of people from one state or an international inter-governmental organization present in another state to represent matters of the sending state or organization in the receiving state.

 

The State Department website lists no consulate in Benghazi.

According to Middle Eastern security officials speaking to WND, the so-called consulate was more of a diplomatic meeting place for U.S. officials, including Stevens.

The security officials divulged the building was routinely used by Stevens and others to coordinate with the Turkish, Saudi and Qatari governments on supporting the insurgencies in the Middle East, most prominently the rebels opposing Assad’s regime in Syria.

 

Last week, the State Department gave a vivid account of Stevens’ final day during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. It was disclosed that about an hour before the attack began, Stevens concluded his final meeting of the day with a Turkish diplomat. Turkey has been leading the insurgency against Assad’s regime.

Last month, WND broke the story that Stevens played a central role in recruiting jihadists to fight Assad’s regime in Syria, according to Egyptian security officials.

Stevens served as a key contact with the Saudis to coordinate the recruitment by Saudi Arabia of Islamic fighters from North Africa and Libya. The jihadists were sent to Syria via Turkey to attack Assad’s forces, said the security officials.

 

The officials said Stevens also worked with the Saudis to send names of potential jihadi recruits to U.S. security organizations for review. Names found to be directly involved in previous attacks against the U.S., including in Iraq and Afghanistan, were ultimately not recruited by the Saudis to fight in Syria, said the officials.

 

Stevens and three other American diplomats were killed on Sept. 11 in an attack blamed on Islamists.

 

As WND reported, questions remain about the nature of U.S. support for the revolutions in Egypt and Libya, including reports the U.S.-aided rebels that toppled Muammar Gadhafi’s regime in Libya consisted of al-Qaida and jihad groups. The U.S. provided direct assistance, including weapons and finances, to the Libyan rebels.

 

Similarly, the Obama administration is currently aiding the rebels fighting Assad’s regime in Syria amid widespread reports that al-Qaida jihadists are included in the ranks of the Free Syrian Army. Earlier this month, Obama announced $50 million more in aid to the Syrian rebels.

 

During the revolution against Gadhafi’s regime, the U.S. admitted to directly arming the rebel groups.

 

At the time, rebel leader Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi admitted in an interview that a significant number of the Libyan rebels were al-Qaida fighters, many of whom had fought U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

 

Adm. James Stavridis, NATO supreme commander for Europe, admitted Libya’s rebel force may include al-Qaida: “We have seen flickers in the intelligence of potential al-Qaida, Hezbollah.”

 

Former CIA officer Bruce Riedel went even further, telling the Hindustan Times: “There is no question that al-Qaida’s Libyan franchise, Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, is a part of the opposition. It has always been Gadhafi’s biggest enemy and its stronghold is Benghazi. What is unclear is how much of the opposition is al-Qaida/Libyan Islamic Fighting Group – 2 percent or 80 percent.”

 

In Syria, meanwhile, the U.S. may be currently supporting al-Qaida and other jihadists fighting with the rebels targeting Assad’s regime.

 

In August, WND quoted a senior Syrian source claiming at least 500 hardcore mujahedeen from Afghanistan, many of whom were spearheading efforts to fight the U.S. there, were killed in clashes with Syrian forces last month.

 

There have been widespread reports of al-Qaida among the Syrian rebels, including in reports by Reuters and the New York Times.


WND reported in May there was growing collaboration between the Syrian opposition and al-Qaida as well as evidence the opposition is sending weapons to jihadists in Iraq, according to an Egyptian security official.


The military official told WND that Egypt has reports of collaboration between the Syrian opposition and three al-Qaida arms, including one the operates in Libya:
Jund al-Sham, which is made up of al-Qaida militants who are Syrian, Palestinian and Lebanese; Jund al-Islam, which in recent years merged with Ansar al-Islam, an extremist group of Sunni Iraqis operating under the al-Qaida banner and operating in Yemen and Libya;
Jund Ansar al-Allah, an al-Qaida group based in Gaza linked to Palestinian camps in Lebanon and Syria.


U.S. officials have stated the White House is providing nonlethal aid to the Syrian rebels while widespread reports have claimed the U.S. has been working with Arab countries to ensure the opposition in Syria is well armed.

“It appears that the Benghazi “consulate” wasn’t really a consulate at all, but a station for funneling Libyan arms and recruiting jihadists to overthrow Assad in Syria:”

 

October 23, 2012
It doesn’t get more serious than a sitting president funneling arms to Al Qaeda terrorists!
Mysterious Libyan ship linked to deadly terror attack?

Frighteningly, it may be because Obama didn’t want anyone to know that he was using the Benghazi station to funnel arms to jihadists:
During the 2011 Libyan revolt against Muammar Qaddafi, reckless U.S. policy flung American forces and money into the conflict on the side of the rebels, who were known at the time to include Al Qaeda elements. Previously the number two official at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, Christopher Stevens was named as the official U.S. liaison to the Libyan opposition in March, 2011.

 

Stevens was tasked with helping to coordinate U.S. assistance to the rebels, whose top military commander, Abdelhakim Belhadj, was the leader of the Al Qaeda affiliate, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG). That means that Stevens was authorized by the U.S. Department of State and the Obama administration to aid and abet individuals and groups that were, at a minimum, allied ideologically with Al Qaeda, the jihadist terrorist organization that attacked the homeland on the first 9-11, the one that’s not supposed to exist anymore after the killing of its leader, Osama bin Laden, on May 2, 2012.

 

[...] The New York Times reported in July, 2012 that CIA officers were operating out of southern Turkey to help channel weapons to fighters supposedly not allied with Al Qaeda or other terrorist groups. In a October 14 piece, though, the Times asserted flatly that “Most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar al-Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups…” And while U.S. officials continue to stick to claims that they are not providing arms directly to the Syrian rebels, but only channeling weapons that come from Saudi Arabia and Qatar, reports that those rebels now have surface-to-air missiles call to mind the thousands of such weapons looted from Muammar Qaddafi’s stockpiles during and after the revolt that ousted him in October 2011.

The evidence suggests that part of Ambassador Stevens’ mission was to recruit jihadists to fight in Syria:
Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador murdered in Libya, played a central role in recruiting jihadists to fight Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria, according to Egyptian security officials speaking to WND.

 

Stevens served as a key contact with the Saudis to coordinate the recruitment by Saudi Arabia of Islamic fighters from North Africa and Libya. The jihadists were sent to Syria via Turkey to attack Assad’s forces, said the security officials.

Fox News has chronicled how the Al Entisar, a Libyan-flagged vessel carrying 400 tons of cargo, docked on Sept. 6 in the Turkish port of Iskenderun. It reportedly supplied both humanitarian assistance and arms -- including deadly SA-7 man-portable surface-to-air missiles -- apparently destined for Islamists, again including al Qaeda elements, in Syria.

 

We know that Stevens' last official act was to hold such a meeting with an unidentified "Turkish diplomat." Presumably, the conversation involved additional arms shipments to al Qaeda and its allies in Syria. It also may have involved getting more jihadi fighters there. After all, Mr. Klein reported last month that, according to sources in Egyptian security, our ambassador was playing a "central role in recruiting jihadists to fight Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria."

 

It gets worse. Last week, Center for Security Policy senior fellow and former career CIA officer Clare Lopez observed that there were two large warehouse-type buildings associated with the so-called "consulate" whose purpose has yet to be disclosed. As their contents were raided in the course of the attack, we may never know for sure whether they housed -- and were known by the local jihadis to house -- arms, perhaps administered by the two former Navy SEALs killed along with Stevens.

Tunisia says it has a 28-year-old Tunisian national in custody who is linked to the attack on the US consulate in Libya that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, reports the AP. Details are sketchy, but the suspect has been identified as Ali Harzi. It's unclear exactly what role he played, but Eli Lake of the Daily Beast says Harzi posted about the attack on social media shortly after it began, drawing the attention of investigators. He reportedly fled to Turkey afterward, where he got picked up and handed over to Tunisia. One source tells Lake that Harzi belongs to "violent extremist networks."

of whom were heroically involved in "preparing for and executing myriad operations to rescue or recover detained or threatened fellow Americans²" wrote an open letter to the House of Representatives. They said, in part:

"This was the most severe attack on American diplomatic facilities and personnel since the attacks on the US Embassies in Tanzania and Kenya in 1998. Thus far it appears that there has been no serious effort to determine critical details of this attack. This is inexcusable and demands immediate attention by the Congress. Congress must show some leadership and provide answers to the public as to what actually occurred in Benghazi. Americans have a right to demand a full accounting on this issue."

Newest NDAA Legalizes The Use Of Propaganda On The US Public--MSM Already Uses Propaganda on Public

Newest NDAA Legalizes The Use Of Propaganda On The US Public--MSM Already Uses Propaganda on Public | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The newest version of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) includes an amendment that would legalize the use of propaganda on the American public, reports Michael Hastings of BuzzFeed.

 

The amendment — proposed by Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) and Adam Smith (D-Wash.) and passed in the House last Friday afternoon — would effectively nullify the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948, which explicitly forbids information and psychological operations aimed at influencing U.S. public opinion.

 

Thornberry said that the current law “ties the hands of America’s diplomatic officials, military, and others by inhibiting our ability to effectively communicate in a credible way,” according to Buzzfeed.

 

The vote came two days after a federal judged ruled that a counter-terrorism provision in the annual defense bill was unconstitutional.

 

Lt. Col. Daniel Davis, who released a highly critical report regarding the distortion of truth by senior military officials in Iraq and Afghanistan, dedicated a section of his report to Information Operations (IO) and states that after Desert Storm the military wanted to transform IO “into a core military competency on a par with air, ground, maritime and special operations.

 

Davis defines IO as “the integrated employment of electronic warfare (EW), computer network operations (CNO), psychological operations (PSYOP), military deception (MILDEC), and operations security (OPSEC), in concert with specified supporting and related capabilities, to influence, disrupt, corrupt or usurp adversarial human and automated decision making while protecting our own.”

 

IO are primarily used to target foreign audiences, but Davis cites numerous senior leaders who want to “protect a key friendly center of gravity, to wit US national will” by repealing the Smith-Mundt Act to allow the direct deployment of these tactics on the American public.

 

...officials given that clearance were required to stick to “talking points” given to them...

 

If the NDAA goes into effect in its current form, the State Department and Pentagon can bypass manipulating mainstream media outlets and directly disseminate campaigns of misinformation to the U.S. public.

 

Another reason I want to get at least 10,000 citizens to defeat the mainstream media and govt lies by filing a class action lawsuit against media companies like: ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC who have become propagandists for the Democratic party.

Dems want to be the 'mommy&daddy'. They want to be the 'village' that takes care of your kids...remember Hillary and her 'it takes a village to raise a child'. 

 

They believe in more government and claim entitlement,social programs&collectivism are to help the poor&middle class, yet this is false and only keeps the poor more poor. Look to Indian Reservations for an example. They are subsidized by the govt for health care and their cost of living yet they live in substandard housing and poverty. The more govt aid, the less productive they are and instead the greater health problems they have from alcoholism to diabetes and obesity. Their school system is a failure, just as the majority of public schools under federal control. Instead of letting the free market and capitalism thrive, those living on govt subsidies and in poverty tend to stay on govt subsidies and in poverty.

d. In 1980 a quarter of the population
of American Indians lived on reservations. Most of these
reservation Indians lived in what could, by one definition or
another, be described as underclass communities.
One criterion used to define an underclass area is that over
40 percent of the households have incomes below the pov-
erty line. By this criterion alone, 18 of the 36 Indian reserva-
tions which had populations of over 2,000 in 1980 were
underclass areas. The largest American Indian reservation,
the Navajo reservation, had a poverty rate of over 50 percent
in 1980

Native American Poverty

http://www.spotlightonpoverty.org/ExclusiveCommentary.aspx?id=0fe5c04e-fdbf-4718-980c-0373ba823da7

 

...Reservations are often structured in ways that discourage private investment. Tribal lands often aren’t deeded to individuals but are common property, and tribal law means that outside investors can’t rely on uniform commercial codes and may have no reliable recourse if they are cheated.

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/10/opinion/kristof-povertys-poster-child.html?_r=0&nbsp;

 

 

To explain the poverty of the reservations, people usually point to alcoholism, corruption or school-dropout rates, not to mention the long distances to jobs and the dusty undeveloped land that doesn’t seem good for growing much. But those are just symptoms. Prosperity is built on property rights, and reservations often have neither. They’re a demonstration of what happens when property rights are weak or non-existent.

The vast majority of land on reservations is held communally.

 

“Markets haven’t been allowed to operate in reserve lands,” says Jules. “We’ve been legislated out of the economy. When you don’t have individual property rights, you can’t build, you can’t be bonded, you can’t pass on wealth. A lot of small businesses never get started because people can’t leverage property [to raise funds]."

 

A bigger obstacle....the culture of the reservations and the generations after generations of dependency. Indeed, a notice on a bulletin board in Garryowen, Montana, inside the Crow reservation and near the site of Custer’s Last Stand, announces when the next round of “per capita payment checks”—derived from Crow Nation trust income–will be mailed.

 

“Privatizing land is fine but it falls far short of the answer,” says Yellowtail. “Our people don’t understand business. After 10 or 15 generations of not being involved in business, they’ve lost their feel for it. Capitalism is considered threatening to our identity, our traditions. Successful entrepreneurs are considered sell-outs, they’re ostracized.

 

We have to promote the dignity of self-sufficiency among Indians. Instead we have a culture of malaise: ‘The tribe will take care of us.’ We accept the myth of communalism. And we don’t value education. We resist it.”

Watch:Longtime Maine News Anchors Cindy Michaels And Tony Consiglio Resign Live On Air | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

The Blaze Reports:

Two Maine news anchors resigned together at the end of Tuesday’s broadcast after “a longstanding battle with upper management over journalistic practices” including being expected to do politically unbalanced news, the Bangor Daily News reported.

 

Cindy Michaels and Tony Consiglio announced at the end of WVII-TV’s 6 p.m. newscast that it would be their final broadcast together. They had been the stations longest running news anchors in Bangor, Maine according to a report from AOL.com. http://jobs.aol.com/articles/2012/11/21/maine-tv-news-anchors-cindy-michaels-and-tony-consiglio-quit-on/  ;

 

“And finally tonight, this will be Tony and my final show together here on ABC 7,” Michaels said. “The last six years have been an interesting and enjoyable time for both of us as we have been the longest running news team in Bangor.”

 

Consiglio said “some recent developments have come to our attention though and departing together is the best alternative we can take.”

 

The Daily News reported both anchors were frustrated with the way they were told to do their jobs.

 

“I just wanted to know that I was doing the best job I could and was being honest and ethical as a journalist, and I thought there were times when I wasn’t able to do that,” Consiglio said.

Per Fox...Staten Island Sandy victims demanding answers from FEMA...they are still without power&living w/o plumbing;at least 1,000 attended town hall expressing anger today... In the meantime Obama is planning a $4 Million dollar vacation on taxpayers money and trying to blame GOP for taking the middle class hostage over the 'fiscal cliff' he is creating because the DEMs won't pass a balanced budget and cut spending!

 

Taxing the rich to death won't be enough pay off the debt and sustain the spending levels Obama and the DEMs want. They want an unlimited debt ceiling and no budget yet hold sequestrian over the military, the middle class/Bush Tax cuts and more and want to blame the GOP! What hypocrites! They should all be suspended without pay&without pensions if they continue this game of manipulation!

 

Math is hard for Obama...and so is the truth. He is trying to make it look like it is the Republicans fault should we go over the fiscal cliff. Obama&the DEM Senate is the one holding the Bush tax cuts hostage over the middle class;all because they want to tax the rich;it didn't work in Greece!

What Today's UN Vote Means For Israel& The US---The UN Has Become More Illegitimate&PA Still Not An Official State

What Today's UN Vote Means For Israel& The US---The UN Has Become More Illegitimate&PA Still Not An Official State | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

Excerpt: Today, with its vote to recognize Palestine as a non-member state the UN creates something out of nothing just as the Roman's did two thousand years ago, when they changed the name of the Jewish State from Judea to Palaestina. As a slap in the face to those stiff-necked "Jews" who revolted against Roman rule too many times. They renamed their homeland using the name of an ancient Israelite Aegean enemy who disappeared from the region over five centuries before--all to ensure that the land lost its Jewish identity.

 

Today the UN attempts to move that Heritage process along by taking a group of refugees who were forced to fester by the King of Jordan and the President of Egypt until they were radicalized. Today the UN is creating something out of what has never been. There was never a country of Palestine, only a territory controlled by Rome, the Ottomans and the British. Yasser Arafat was its first official leader; it has no boarders or capital. Its only “ancient history" was as the Israelite land of Judea and Samaria. There was never even a call for a Palestinian State in the years Egypt controlled Gaza and Jordan controlled Judea and Samaria.

 

Today neither Fatah the terrorist organization controlling Judea and Samaria, or Hamas (which is biblical Hebrew for violence and chaos) recognize the Jewish people's right their historic homeland but today they are approaching the UN to give them a State with no history.

 

This Palestinian entity, which will be called a state by the UN today, has none of the above. It is simply a band of terrorist thugs, born out of the hatred of Jews, forced to live in camps, left to fester by Egypt and Jordan who would not allow them to become citizens of their countries even though those countries controlled the land they lived in, and finally they were unleashed on the world to commit violence against innocents.

 

Today the United Nations will recognize Palestine a name created by Rome to destroy the heritage of the Jews, and give it to a people whose goal is the same---to destroy the heritage of the Jews. In doing so this world body continues with what they started in 1974 with the invitation of a mass-murderer to the General Assembly--- to nurse terrorism and promote hatred of the Jewish people.

 

 

LBN:

However, according to this article from Heritage, "the International Court of Justice issued an advisory opinion on this very issue in 1950 after the General Assembly formally requested an answer to the following question:
Can the admission of a State to membership in the United Nations, pursuant to Article 4, paragraph 2, of the Charter, be effected by a decision of the General Assembly when the Security Council has made no recommendation for admission by reason of the candidate failing to obtain the requisite majority or of the negative vote of a permanent Member upon a resolution so to recommend?[9]


In its advisory opinion, the ICJ stated that it “has no doubt as to the meaning” of Article 4, paragraph 2, which established a Security Council recommendation as “the condition precedent” to the General Assembly decision that effects admission.[10] The court dismissed arguments that the General Assembly had the power to admit a member without a Security Council recommendation because it “would almost nullify the role of the Security Council in the exercise of one of the essential functions of the Organization.” It similarly rejected the argument that the absence of a recommendation could be treated as the equivalent of an unfavorable recommendation, thereby permitting a General Assembly vote. In conclusion, the Court ruled 12 to 2 that:


[T]he admission of a State to membership in the United Nations, pursuant to paragraph 2 of Article 4 of the Charter, cannot be effected by a decision of the General Assembly when the Security Council has made no recommendation for admission, by reason of the candidate failing to obtain the requisite majority or of the negative vote of a permanent Member upon a resolution so to recommend.[11]


In short, the procedures for granting U.N. membership require a recommendation from the U.N. Security Council before the General Assembly can take action. Without a Security Council recommendation, a General Assembly resolution calling for the U.N. membership for Palestine or its recognition as a state has no relevance beyond that of the annual U.N. General Assembly resolutions on “the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination.” The most recent version passed the U.N. General Assembly with a vote of 177 in favor to 6 opposed, including the U.S., on December 21, 2010, and stated that the General Assembly:


Reaffirms the right of the Palestinian people to self-determination, including the right to their independent State of Palestine;
Urges all States and the specialized agencies and organizations of the United Nations system to continue to support and assist the Palestinian people in the early realization of their right to self-determination.[12]


These resolutions have been offered annually in the General Assembly since the 49th session of the General Assembly in 1994 and have never received less than 140 votes in favor. In recent years, more than 170 member states have supported the resolutions.

 

Yet, without a Security Council recommendation, they have never been deemed sufficient to justify Palestine’s membership in the U.N., despite receiving more than the two-thirds vote of the General Assembly required to admit a new member."

 

However....."Under the U.N. Charter and General Assembly rules, a Security Council recommendation is clearly necessary before the General Assembly can vote to admit a member. Any permanent member of the Security Council can veto the recommendation, and President Obama expressed earlier this year that the U.S. would veto such a recommendation:
No vote at the United Nations will ever create an independent Palestinian state. And the United States will stand up against efforts to single Israel out at the UN or in any international forum. Because Israel’s legitimacy is not a matter for debate.[13]


Recognizing that a Security Council recommendation is impossible, Palestinian Foreign Affairs Minister Riyad al-Malki floated the notion that the Palestinian Authority could avoid the Security Council and seek recognition of the Palestinian state by the United Nations through a special session of the General Assembly. The basis for this strategy is the “Uniting for Peace” precedent."

 

"Presumably, the effort to circumvent the Security Council by using the United for Peace resolution would be pursued within the framework of the ongoing 10th session. The grounds for using the 10th emergency special session or, more broadly, the Uniting for Peace resolution to overrule the requirement for a Security Council recommendation for membership or to recognize a Palestinian state are dubious for several reasons.
Reason #1: The Uniting for Peace resolution has nothing to do with U.N. membership.
The Charter is very explicit in the procedures for membership, and attempting to circumvent the Security Council would violate those strictures. No General Assembly resolution, even one adopted under the auspices of the Uniting for Peace resolution, can obviate the Charter. Overriding the Charter-defined role of the Security Council in admitting a new member requires a Charter amendment."

 

Attempting to use the Uniting for Peace precedent to circumvent the strictures of the Charter on membership would go far beyond previous practice and clearly violate the terms of the Charter.

 

General Assembly resolutions are often portrayed as reflecting the “will of the international community,” but in terms of substance and effect, they are nonbinding and meaningless except those that apply to the General Assembly itself, the funds disbursed by the body, or those bodies beholden to the General Assembly. The Security Council is, at the very least, co-equal to the General Assembly and is not subject to its resolutions when they intrude on its Charter-designated authority. In fact, the Security Council is generally regarded as the most powerful body in the U.N. because all U.N. member states and the General Assembly are subject to its resolutions if adopted under Chapter VII of the U.N. Charter.

 

Under no circumstances could a General Assembly resolution compel U.N. member states to recognize the state of Palestine. On the contrary, member states may completely ignore or disregard any General Assembly vote on recognition of Palestinian statehood as they often do other resolutions. For proof, one need look no further than the 22 U.N. member states that do not recognize Israel as a state, including founding U.N. members Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, and Lebanon, despite the fact that Israel was established through U.N. actions supported by the Security Council and the General Assembly and was admitted as a member of the organization in 1949 by the General Assembly upon recommendation of the Security Council.

 

There is little reason to believe that U.N. membership or recognition of a Palestinian state by the General Assembly would help to resolve the international peace and security issues in the Israeli–Palestinian conflict.
The resolution, authored by the Palestinian Authority and preferred by its allies in the General Assembly, would inevitably be biased toward the Palestinian position. If that position becomes the baseline for Palestinian negotiations, it could irredeemably make a lasting peace, which requires acceptance and recognition by both parties, unattainable. For instance, the resolution would reportedly call for what most Israelis and the Israeli government consider to be a non-starter: “recognition of a Palestinian state based on the pre-1967 armistice lines, which would put all of Judea and Samaria and the eastern half of Jerusalem in Arab hands.”

 

 

"Prime Minister Netanyahu has made clear that the 1967 borders are indefensible and pose a serious security threat to Israel and, therefore, a strict recognition of those borders is unacceptable. Thus, the resolution would set conditions for peace that Israel could not and would not accept.

 

A unilateral declaration of statehood would also undermine all internationally accepted frameworks for peace, including past U.N. peace efforts. It would violate U.N. Security Council Resolution 242 and the Road Map for Peace, which call for the creation of a Palestinian state and delineation of borders through a negotiated mutual agreement, not through unilateral declarations.

 

U.N. resolutions, U.N. membership, and other actions by the U.N. do not confer statehood or legitimacy upon a government. The traditional measure of statehood is based on a government’s actions and authority over the territory that it claims and the respect that the government receives from other states, usually measured in the extent of official recognition by other states. Sovereign states are members of an exclusive club, and they, not the United Nations, are the judges of the merits of aspiring candidates and indicate their determinations through their actions.

 

 

Somalia became a member of the U.N. in 1960, but has had no meaningful legitimate government since its central government collapsed in 1991. Despite various U.N. resolutions asserting that various political constructs are the official government of Somalia and ongoing U.N. membership since the dissolution of the Somali government in 1991, virtually no one considers Somalia to be a legitimate state, and the number of active foreign embassies in Somalia can be counted on one hand. In fact, autonomous regions within Somalia are better governed and have sounder, albeit flawed, claims to statehood than the Transitional Federal Government backed by the United Nations.

 

 

It could, however, have implications on how Palestine is treated within the General Assembly and, thereby, have political ramifications for Israel and the United States. The General Assembly could decide to elevate Palestine’s status in the General Assembly to a non-member state observer, equivalent to the Holy See. Because it is not included in the Charter, the rules guiding the “observer status” are entirely up to the General Assembly, and the U.S. cannot block it with its veto in the Security Council.

 

Palestine lacks nearly all of the characteristics of a modern, functioning state. It is a ward of the international community, nearly entirely dependent on it for revenue, services, and sustenance. The Palestinian Authority is either unable or unwilling to police and govern its territory, which terrorists and other extremists use to incite and commit violent acts against Israeli civilians. The Palestinian authorities have historically refused to abide by the U.N. goal dating back to the late 1940s of a Palestinian state peacefully coexisting with the Jewish state of Israel.

 

A U.N. General Assembly vote on a resolution involving recognition of the state of Palestine is legally nonbinding. Furthermore, it cannot be admitted as a U.N. member state without a Security Council recommendation.


Diplomatically and rhetorically, however, Palestine will portray the vote as support for its unilateral declaration of statehood, attempt to use it to impose unacceptable conditions on Israel by circumventing bilateral negotiations, and refer to it as evidence in its ongoing assault on the legitimacy of a U.N. member state. This is a serious misuse of the U.N. By treating this effort seriously, the U.N. would further undermine the degraded standards of statehood, beyond the damage it has already done by accepting failed states among its membership. Such an action would reflect badly on those member states willing to misuse the U.N. in this fashion and, more broadly, damage the credibility of the U.N. in a manner reminiscent of the “Zionism is racism” in the 1970s. Finally, this would further discredit the U.N. in the eyes of many Americans.

 

The General Assembly has no authority to override the U.N. Charter, which specifically requires a Security Council recommendation before admitting a new member state. The Uniting for Peace precedent has no bearing on this matter and is similarly unable to override the U.N. Charter. Moreover, the U.N. role in state recognition is nonexistent beyond being a reflection of the sovereign decisions of the member states. If the Palestinians push forward with their unilateral statehood scheme, they will escalate tensions with Israel and the United States, while hurting the prospects for negotiating a comprehensive peace agreement, the only realistic path to Palestinian statehood."

 

 

Source: http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2011/07/how-the-us-should-respond-to-the-un-vote-for-palestinian-statehood

 

 

LBN:So because they sought 'non-member state' status Palestine will receive some recognition by member states,the same as the Holy See, but it will not have full recognition of statehood since the US, a member of the Security Council, did not vote in favor of today's vote.

 

"A unilateral declaration of statehood would also undermine all internationally accepted frameworks for peace, including past U.N. peace efforts. It would violate U.N. Security Council Resolution 242 and the Road Map for Peace, which call for the creation of a Palestinian state and delineation of borders through a negotiated mutual agreement, not through unilateral declarations."

 

In the end this vote further undermines the UN and discredits the UN in the eyes of many Americans...which I would say should further affirms the need for the US to defund the UN and get the UN out of the business of the US government. They have admitted and recognized countries that support terrorism like Gaza and Hamas and Somalia, it is time to stop funding and recognizing an organization that votes against US interests and Israel a majority of the time.

 

Long article....within but worth reading over to understand what today's UN vote means for Israel and the US.
