Watch Police Kill A Homeless Man

In this video you can watch police kill a homeless man who was "camping illegally":

As far as I am concerned, he posed no threat to them ... and they killed him anyway.

Think about this at Easter: Jesus came to save people like this homeless man, NOT people like these cops.

For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:
I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.
Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?
Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.
Matthew 25:42-46 KJV

US Court Denies Attorney-Client Privilege

No more "land of the free". Uncle Sam has the "right" to listen to everything you say and to watch everything you do:

I'm looking for a country which still provides the freedoms which Americans think they used to enjoy. Does anyone know of such a land? If you do, please tell me because I would like to move there.

Medicated to Death

Here is an eye-opener report about the role played by selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors in mass killings in the US:

The killings should not be excused because of the drugs, but it would be wise to start understanding the role played by them ... and to do something about it.

One in five US children do not have enough to eat

Here in the so-called "richest country in the world", where food is relatively plentiful, our children go hungry:

Let me guess: did Jesus die on the cross so that the rich could live in paradise?

I don't think so.

War Is Peace, Obama-Style [ad-Dajjal]

The number of countries in which the US runs covert operations, drone raids, military training exercises, and other violent interventions has soared from 60 at the end of the Bush term to 134 nations today—70 percent of the world.

Let's contrast that with what the "peace candidate" said in his Nobel Lecture:

I come here with an acute sense of the costs of armed conflict – filled with difficult questions about the relationship between war and peace, and our effort to replace one with the other.

The concept of a "just war" emerged, suggesting that war is justified only when certain conditions were met: if it is waged as a last resort or in self-defense; if the force used is proportional; and if, whenever possible, civilians are spared from violence.

I do not bring with me today a definitive solution to the problems of war. What I do know is that meeting these challenges will require the same vision, hard work, and persistence of those men and women who acted so boldly decades ago. And it will require us to think in new ways about the notions of just war and the imperatives of a just peace.

We must begin by acknowledging the hard truth: We will not eradicate violent conflict in our lifetimes.

Where force is necessary, we have a moral and strategic interest in binding ourselves to certain rules of conduct. And even as we confront a vicious adversary that abides by no rules, I believe the United States of America must remain a standard bearer in the conduct of war. That is what makes us different from those whom we fight. That is a source of our strength. That is why I prohibited torture. That is why I ordered the prison at Guantanamo Bay closed. And that is why I have reaffirmed America's commitment to abide by the Geneva Conventions. We lose ourselves when we compromise the very ideals that we fight to defend. And we honor – we honor those ideals by upholding them not when it's easy, but when it is hard.

Yes, I cherry picked excerpts from his Nobel Lecture, and you may read the rest of his gibberish here:

Clearly he told a lot of lies in that lecture, but one thing he said was true:

We will not eradicate violent conflict in our lifetimes.

By the way, I would like to point out what I believe to be the most serious lie he told that day:

But as a head of state sworn to protect and defend my nation ...

He took no such oath. The Presidential oath of office reads as follows:

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

He is not sworn to protect and defend the nation. He is sworn to faithfully execute his office (including the faithful execution of the laws) and to defend the Constitution, and he has done none of these things.

It's appalling that a former "constitutional law professor" would fail to understand the basic requirements of his office. Instead he has revealed himself to be a heartless and petty dictator who in most respects is no better than his predecessor, and who in many respects is worse.

America's Founders took great pains to ensure that traitors, criminals, and morons could not rise to the highest office of the land. They put in place strict controls on the right to vote, and they specified that an Electoral College of the wisest people in the land should choose the President. Instead we have stripped those controls away and allowed morons to elect a moron. We now live in one of the Founders' worst nightmares ... and I fear that even worse things are to come.

Once an Arab model, Baghdad now world's worst city

Here is a report which outlines the stunning destruction of Baghdad:

This city was destroyed not because of any imaginary WMDs, or even because the West wants Iraq's oil.

No, it was destroyed because it was a successful example of how the world could thrive without the influence of the United States. It was destroyed so that the world could have no alternatives to our "way of life".

And this process will be repeated around the world until all possible alternatives to the "American way" are gone:

And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Revelation 13:17-18

US Is An Oligarchy

American democracy – once a glorious thing – has devolved into an oligarchy, according to two leading IMF officials, the former Vice President of the Dallas Federal Reserve,  the head of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, Moody’s chief economist and many others.

But don’t take their word for it …

A new quantitative study by Princeton’s Martin Gilens and Northwestern’s Benjamin Page finds that America is not a democracy … but is an oligarchy.

Or, as I have put it many times before, a government controlled by bankgangsters, corporations, and their accomplices in the one percent.

And not one of them is going to do a damn thing to save us from what's coming.
