Once a warrior, always one. Clark hasn't forgotten. His credentials are notorious. He's a war criminal. He's also a whistle-blower.
Obama's unwelcome in Berlin. He's not wanted. Many Berliners aren't pleased he came. His rhetoric fell short. Doublespeak duplicity is hollow. It doesn't sell well.
On April 5, 2009, Obama spoke in Prague's Hradcany Square. He did so duplicitously. He lied saying "clearly and with conviction America's commitment to seek the peace and security of a world without nuclear weapons."

Sadly, American actor James Gandolfini died June 19 while on holiday in Rome. Best known for his role on the HBO television series The Sopranos (1999-2007), Gandolfini was only 51 years old. A very fine performer, who often played gruff or thuggish characters, by all accounts, off-screen he was a shy and unpretentious man.

...TransCanada Corp., the Canadian owned energy conglomerate that is the backer of the Keystone XL pipeline extension...is encouraging American law enforcement agencies to treat anti-pipeline protestors like terrorists. Yes, terrorists...And what are the “terrorist” activities that TransCanada is so concerned about? They include things like monkey-wrenching, tree-sitting, and tying yourself to a construction vehicle with a device called a “dragon-lock.”
Spying on its citizenry reflects one of the most defining police state characteristics. Post-9/11, America crossed the line.

[Whistle-blower Edward] Snowden’s revelation that Washington has used Google, Facebook, Apple and other giants of consumer technology to spy on almost everyone, is further evidence of a modern form of fascism...Having nurtured old-fashioned fascists around the world...the genie has risen at home. Understanding this is as important as understanding the criminal abuse of technology.

School police are the bedrock of the school-to-prison pipeline, a system that levies harsh punishments for nonviolent behavior and, despite scant evidence of greater infraction, funnels disproportionate numbers of black and Latino students out of school and into court...The commotion over school safety has also opened space for youth organizers to push the conversation in the opposite direction.
Obama's on a fast track toward tyranny. He's heading for greater intervention against Syria. Ravaging the country entirely is planned. At issue is establishing another pro-Western vassal state.
NSA is one of 16 known US spy agencies. Perhaps others operate secretly. Black budgets conceal what's spent. Amounts are enormous. They're unconscionable.
Key Obama officials comprise a virtual rogues gallery of scoundrels.
Obama lied. He's a serial liar. He claims Syria used chemical weapons. His so-called red line was crossed. No verifiable evidence provides proof. Clear facts prove he lied.
General Keith Alexander is NSA director. He's US Cyber Command head. He's in charge of lawlessly spying. He directs illegal hacking.
