+18 Nigerian Christian Killing Muslims, Caught Live

On the video testimony below given by a Army and Police not working in aid assistance to persecuted Muslims in Nigeria who were killed on point blank in the street live.

Christian Jihadist Women in America Are Allowed Murder and Poisoning the Children On Christmas

An Arizona woman is accused of trying to poison her four children, including one who died, and of stabbing her former husband, all on Christmas.

The Mother

Casa Grande police say 35-year-old Connie Villa was arrested Sunday on suspicion of one count of first-degree murder and four counts of attempted murder.

According to police, the ex-husband called 911 after he was stabbed when he went to Villa’s residence. Officers found the body of 13-year-old Aniarael Macias, while Villa with stab wounds believed to have been self-inflicted.

Sweet Child

Autopsy and toxicology results are pending on the girl, believed to have been poisoned.

The three other children are in good condition and are now with their father’s family.

It’s not immediately known whether Villa has an attorney. A possible motive hasn’t been disclosed.

 

Billion-Dollar-a-Year Program to Deceive Public About Global Warming Is Exposed

Totally Fuck’d up Civilized Nation so Called

2012: What's the 'real' truth?

By Eric Zuesse (about the author)
opednews.com
December 30, 2013A December 2013 academic article has documented how billionaires have made suckers of millions of people, to cause them to believe that global warming is a mere hoax, and to think that the oil companies’ line on this matter is honest.

This research, by Robert J. Brulle, was published in a leading climatological journal, Climate Change, and it reports that a small number of aristocrats have collectively spent, on average, a billion dollars a year, in order to fool the American public into thinking that climate change isn’t happening, and that, even if it is, it’s not caused by burning fossil fuels. These aristocrats control fossil fuels corporations, such as Koch Industries, and ExxonMobil, but their money for this mass-deception campaign is laundered through far-right-wing foundations they control, to think-tanks they control, which, in turn, buy professors to provide…

Wounded Knee Massacre by Christians Crusaders

Wounded Knee Massacre by Christians Crusaders

Please don’t be confused with Wounded Knee Incident.

File:Woundedknee1891.jpg

The Wounded Knee Massacre occurred on December  29,1890, near Wounded Knee Creek (Lakota:Čhaŋkpé Ópi Wakpála) on the Lakota Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in the U.S. state of South Dakota. It was the last battle of the American Indian Wars. On the day before, a detachment of the U.S. 7th Cavalry Regiment commanded by Major Samuel M. Whitside intercepted Spotted Elk‘s band of Miniconjou Lakota and 38 Hunkpapa Lakota near Porcupine Butte and escorted them five miles westward (8 km) to Wounded Knee Creek, where they made camp.

The remainder of the 7th Cavalry Regiment arrived, led by Colonel James W. Forsyth and surrounded the encampment supported by four Hotchkiss guns.

On the morning of December 29, the troops went into the camp to disarm the Lakota. One version of events claims that during the process of disarming the Lakota, a deaf tribesman named Black Coyote was reluctant to give up his rifle, claiming he had paid a lot for it. A scuffle over Black Coyote’s rifle escalated and a shot was fired which resulted in the 7th Cavalry’s opening fire indiscriminately from all sides, killing men, women, and children, as well as some of their own fellow soldiers. Those few Lakota warriors who still had weapons began shooting back at the attacking soldiers, who quickly suppressed the Lakota fire. The surviving Lakota fled, but U.S. cavalrymen pursued and killed many who were unarmed.

By the time it was over, at least 150 men, women, and children of the Lakota had been killed and 51 wounded (4 men, 47 women and children, some of whom died later); some estimates placed the number of dead at 300. Twenty-five soldiers also died, and 39 were wounded (6 of the wounded would later die). At least twenty soldiers were awarded the Medal of Honor. In 2001, the National Congress of American Indians passed two resolutions condemning the awards and called on the U.S. government to rescind them. The site of the massacre has been designated a National Historic Landmark.

In the years prior to the massacre, the U.S. Government had continued to seize the Lakota’s lands. The once large bison herds (an indigenous peoples‘ Great Plains staple) had been hunted to near-extinction by European settlers. Treaty promises to protect reservation lands from encroachment by settlers and gold miners were not implemented as dictated by treaty. As a result, there was unrest on the reservations. It was during this time that news spread among the reservations of a Paiute prophet named Wovoka, founder of the Ghost Dance religion. He had a vision that the Christian MessiahJesus Christ, had returned to earth in the form of a Native American.

The Messiah would raise all the Native American believers above the earth. During this time the white man would disappear from Native lands, the buffalo herds and all the other animals would return in abundance, and the ghosts of their ancestors would return to earth — hence the word “Ghost” in “Ghost Dance“. They would then return to earth to live in peace. All this would be brought about by performance of the “Ghost Dance”. Lakota ambassadors to WovokaKicking Bear and Short Bull taught the Lakota that while performing the Ghost Dance, they would wear special Ghost Dance shirts as seen by Black Elk in a vision. Kicking Bear said the shirts had the power to repel bullets.

European Americans were alarmed by the sight of the many Great Basin and Plains tribes performing the Ghost Dance, worried that it might be a prelude to armed attack. Among them was the US Indian Agent at the Standing Rock Agency where Chief Sitting Bull lived. US officials decided to take some of the chiefs into custody in order to quell what they called the “Messiah Craze.” The military first hoped to have Buffalo Bill — a friend of Sitting Bull — aid in the plan to reduce the chance of violence. Standing Rock agentJames McLaughlin overrode the military and sent the Indian police to arrest Sitting Bull.

On December 15, 1890, 40 Indian policemen arrived at Chief Sitting Bull‘s house to arrest him. Crowds gathered in protest, and the first shot was fired when Sitting Bull tried to pull away from his captors, killing the officer who had been holding him. Additional shots were fired, resulting in the death of Sitting Bull, eight of his supporters and six policemen. After Sitting Bull’s death, 200 members of his Hunkpapa band, fearful of reprisals, fled Standing Rock to join Chief Spotted Elk (later to be known as “Big Foot”) and his Miniconjou band at the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation.

Spotted Elk and his band, along with 38 Hunkpapa, left the Cheyenne River Reservation on December 23 to journey to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to seek shelter with Red Cloud.

Former Pine Ridge Indian agent Valentine T. McGillycuddy was asked his opinion of the ‘hostilities’ surrounding the Ghost Dance movement by General Leonard W. Colby commander of the Nebraska National Guard (portion of letter dated Jan. 15, 1891):

“As for the “Ghost Dance” too much attention has been paid to it. It was only the symptom or surface indication of a deep rooted, long existing difficulty; as well treat the eruption of small pox as the disease and ignore the constitutional disease.”

“As regards disarming the Sioux, however desirable it may appear, I consider it neither advisable, nor practicable. I fear it will result as the theoretical enforcement of prohibition in Kansas, Iowa and Dakota; you will succeed in disarming and keeping disarmed the friendly Indians because you can, and you will not succeed with the mob element because you cannot.”

“If I were again to be an Indian Agent, and had my choice, I would take charge of 10,000 armed Sioux in preference to a like number of disarmed ones; and furthermore agree to handle that number, or the whole Sioux nation, without a white soldier. Respectfully, etc., V.T. McGillycuddy.

P.S. I neglected to state that up to date there has been neither a Sioux outbreak or war. No citizen in Nebraska or Dakota has been killed, molested or can show the scratch of a pin, and no property has been destroyed off the reservation.”

General Miles’ Telegram

General Miles sent this telegram from Rapid City to General John Schofieldin Washington, D.C. on December 19, 1890:

“The difficult Indian problem cannot be solved permanently at this end of the line. It requires the fulfillment of Congress of the treaty obligations that the Indians were entreated and coerced into signing. They signed away a valuable portion of their reservation, and it is now occupied by white people, for which they have received nothing.”

“They understood that ample provision would be made for their support; instead, their supplies have been reduced, and much of the time they have been living on half and two-thirds rations. Their crops, as well as the crops of the white people, for two years have been almost total failures.”

“The dissatisfaction is wide spread, especially among the Sioux, while the Cheyennes have been on the verge of starvation, and were forced to commit depredations to sustain life. These facts are beyond question, and the evidence is positive and sustained by thousands of witnesses.”

The fight and ensuing massacre

Spotted Elk lies dead after the Massacre of Wounded Knee, 1890

On December 28, 1890, Chief Spotted Elk of the Miniconjou Lakota nation and 350 of his followers were intercepted by a 7th Cavalry detachment under Major Samuel M. Whitside southwest of the badlands near Porcupine Butte. John Shangreau, a scout and interpreter who was half Sioux, advised that they not be disarmed immediately, as it would lead to violence. The troopers escorted the Lakota about five miles westward (8 km) to Wounded Knee Creek where they made camp. Later that evening, Col. James W. Forsythand the rest of the 7th Cavalry arrived, bringing the number of troopers at Wounded Knee to 500. In contrast, there were 350 Native Americans, of whom all but 120 were women and children. The troopers surrounded Spotted Elk’s encampment and set up four rapid fire Hotchkiss-designed M1875 Mountain Guns.

At daybreak on December 29, 1890, Col. Forsyth ordered the surrender of weapons and the immediate removal and transportation of the Indians from the “zone of military operations” to awaiting trains. A search of the camp confiscated 38 rifles and more rifles were taken as the soldiers searched the Indians. None of the old men were found to be armed. Yellow Bird harangued the young men who were becoming agitated by the search and the tension spread to the soldiers.

Specific details of what triggered the fight are debated. According to some accounts, a medicine man named Yellow Bird began to perform the Ghost Dance, reiterating his assertion to the Lakota that the ghost shirts were bulletproof. As tension mounted, Black Coyote refused to give up his rifle; he was deaf and had not understood the order. Another Indian said: “Black Coyote is deaf.” (He did not speak English). When the soldier refused to heed his warning, he said, “Stop! He cannot hear your orders!” At that moment, two soldiers seized Black Coyote from behind, and in the struggle (allegedly), his rifle discharged. At the same moment Yellow Bird threw some dust into the air, and approximately five young Lakota men with concealed weapons threw aside their blankets and fired their rifles at Troop K of the 7th. After this initial exchange, the firing became indiscriminate.

Soldiers pose with three of the four Hotchkiss-designed M1875 Mountain Guns used at Wounded Knee. The caption on the photograph reads: “Famous Battery ‘E’ of the 1st Artillery. These brave men and the Hotchkiss guns that Big Foot’s Indians thought were toys, Together with the fighting 7th what’s left of Gen. Custer’s boys, Sent 200 Indians to that Heaven which the ghost dancer enjoys. This checked the Indian noise, and Gen. Miles with staff Returned to Illinois.”

According to commanding Gen. Nelson A. Miles, a “scuffle occurred between one warrior who had [a] rifle in his hand and two soldiers. The rifle was discharged and a battle occurred, not only the warriors but the sick Chief Spotted Elk, and a large number of women and children who tried to escape by running and scattering over the prairie were hunted down and killed.”

At first the struggle was fought at close range; fully half the Indian men were killed or wounded before they had a chance to get off any shots. Some of the Indians grabbed rifles they had been hiding and opened fire on the soldiers. With no cover, and with many of the Lakota unarmed, this phase of the fighting lasted a few minutes at most. While the Indian warriors and soldiers were shooting at close range, other soldiers used the Hotchkiss guns against the tipi camp full of women and children. It is believed that many of the troops on the battlefield were victims of friendly fire from their own Hotchkiss guns. The Indian women and children fled the camp, seeking shelter in a nearby ravine from the crossfire. The officers had lost all control of their men. Some of the soldiers fanned out to run across the battlefield and finished off wounded Indians. Others leaped onto their horses and pursued the Lakota(men, women and children), in some cases for miles across the prairies. By the end of the fighting, which lasted less than an hour, at least 150 Lakota had been killed and 50 wounded. Historian Dee Brown, in Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, mentions an estimate of 300 of the original 350 having been killed or wounded and that the soldiers loaded 51 survivors (4 men and 47 women and children) of the massacre onto wagons and took them to the Pine Ridge Reservation. Army casualties numbered 25 dead and 39 wounded.

Eyewitness accounts

“What’s left of Big Foot’s band”: John Grabill, 1891

“… then many Indians broke into the ravine; some ran up the ravine and to favorable positions for defense.”

  • Black Elk (1863–1950); medicine man, Oglala Lakota:

“I did not know then how much was ended. When I look back now from this high hill of my old age, I can still see the butchered women and children lying heaped and scattered all along the crooked gulch as plain as when I saw them with eyes young. And I can see that something else died there in the bloody mud, and was buried in the blizzard. A people’s dream died there. It was a beautiful dream … the nation’s hope is broken and scattered. There is no center any longer, and the sacred tree is dead.”

“There was a woman with an infant in her arms who was killed as she almost touched the flag of truce … A mother was shot down with her infant; the child not knowing that its mother was dead was still nursing … The women as they were fleeing with their babies were killed together, shot right through … and after most all of them had been killed a cry was made that all those who were not killed or wounded should come forth and they would be safe. Little boys … came out of their places of refuge, and as soon as they came in sight a number of soldiers surrounded them and butchered them there.”

“I know the men did not aim deliberately and they were greatly excited. I don’t believe they saw their sights. They fired rapidly but it seemed to me only a few seconds till there was not a living thing before us; warriors, squaws, children, ponies, and dogs … went down before that unaimed fire.” (Godfrey was a Lieutenant in Captain Benteen’s force during the Battle of the Little Bighorn)

  • Hugh McGinnis; First Battalion, Co. K, Seventh Cavalry: “General Nelson A. Miles who visited the scene of carnage, following a three day blizzard, estimated that around 300 snow shrouded forms were strewn over the countryside. He also discovered to his horror that helpless children and women with babes in their arms had been chased as far as two miles from the original scene of encounter and cut down without mercy by the troopers. … Judging by the slaughter on the battlefield it was suggested that the soldiers simply went berserk. For who could explain such a merciless disregard for life? … As I see it the battle was more or less a matter of spontaneous combustion, sparked by mutual distrust …

Aftermath

Following a three-day blizzard, the military hired civilians to bury the dead Lakota. The burial party found the deceased frozen; they were gathered up and placed in a mass grave on a hill overlooking the encampment from which some of the fire from the Hotchkiss guns originated. It was reported that four infants were found alive, wrapped in their deceased mothers’ shawls. In all, 84 men, 44 women, and 18 children reportedly died on the field, while at least seven Lakota were mortally wounded. General Nelson Miles denounced Colonel Forsyth and relieved him of command. An exhaustive Army Court of Inquiry convened by Miles criticized Forsyth for his tactical dispositions, but otherwise exonerated him of responsibility. The Court of Inquiry, however, was not conducted as a formal court-martial.

The Secretary of War concurred with the decision and reinstated Forsyth to command of the 7th Cavalry. Testimony had indicated that for the most part, troops attempted to avoid non-combatant casualties. Miles continued to criticize Forsyth, whom he believed had deliberately disobeyed his commands in order to destroy the Indians. Miles promoted the conclusion that Wounded Knee was a deliberate massacre rather than a tragedy caused by poor decisions, in an effort to destroy the career of Forsyth. This was later whitewashed and Forsyth was promoted to Major General.

The American public’s reaction to the battle at the time was generally favorable. Many non-Lakota living near the reservations interpreted the battle as the defeat of a murderous cult; others confused Ghost Dancers with Native Americans in general. In an editorial response to the event, the young newspaper editor L. Frank Baum, later the author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, wrote in the Aberdeen Saturday Pioneer on January 3, 1891:

The Pioneer has before declared that our only safety depends upon the total extermination of the Indians. Having wronged them for centuries, we had better, in order to protect our civilization, follow it up by one more wrong and wipe these untamed and untamable creatures from the face of the earth. In this lies future safety for our settlers and the soldiers who are under incompetent commands. Otherwise, we may expect future years to be as full of trouble with the redskins as those have been in the past.

Soon after the event, Dewey Beard, his brother Joseph Horn Cloud and others formed the Wounded Knee Survivors Association, which came to include descendants. They sought compensation from the US government for the many fatalities and injured. Today the association is independent and works to preserve and protect the historic site from exploitation, and to administer any memorial erected there. Papers of the association (1890–1973) and related materials are held by the University of South Dakota and are available for research. It was not until the 1990s that a memorial to the Lakota was included in the National Historic Landmark.

More than 80 years after the battle, beginning on February 27, 1973, Wounded Knee was the site of the Wounded Knee incident, a 71-day standoff between militants of the American Indian Movement—who had chosen the site for its symbolic value—and federal law enforcement officials.

Drexel Mission Fight

The ‘Bloody Pocket’; location of the Drexel Mission Fight.

Historically, Wounded Knee is generally considered to be the end of the collective multi-century series of conflicts between colonial and U.S. forces and American Indians, known collectively as the Indian Wars. It was not however the last armed conflict between Native Americans and the United States.

The Drexel Mission Fight was an armed confrontation between Lakota warriors and the United States Army that took place on thePine Ridge Indian Reservation the day after the battle on December 30, 1890. The fight occurred on White Clay Creek approximately 15 miles north of Pine Ridge where Lakota fleeing from the continued hostile situation surrounding the battle at Wounded Knee had set up camp.

Company K of the Seventh Cavalry — the unit involved in the battle — was sent to force the Lakotas’ return to the areas they were assigned on their respective reservations. Some of the ‘hostiles’ were BruléLakota from the Rosebud Indian Reservation. The Seventh Cavalry was pinned down in a valley by the combined Lakota forces and had to be rescued by the Ninth Cavalry, an African American regiment nicknamed the Buffalo Soldiers.[35]

Among the Lakota warriors was a young Brulé from Rosebud named Plenty Horses who had recently returned from five years at the Carlisle Indian School in Pennsylvania. A week after this fight, Plenty Horses would shoot and kill Army Lieutenant Edward W. Casey, commandant of the Cheyenne Scouts (Troop L, Eighth Cavalry). The testimony introduced at the trial of Plenty Horses and his subsequent acquittal also helped abrogate the legal culpability of the U.S. Army for the Wounded Knee Massacre.

Medal of Honor controversy

For this 1890 offensive, the Army awarded twenty Medals of Honor, its highest commendation. While recently, in the governmental Nebraska State Historical Society‘s Summer 1994 quarterly journal, Jerry Green construes that, pre-1916 Medals of Honor were awarded more liberally, however “the number of medals does seem disproportionate when compared to those awarded for other battles.” Quantifying, he compares the three awarded for the Battle of Bear Paw Mountain’s five-day siege, to the twenty awarded for this short and one-sided action.

Native American activists have urged the medals be withdrawn, as they say they were “Medals of Dishonor”. According to Lakota tribesman William Thunder Hawk, “The Medal of Honor is meant to reward soldiers who act heroically. But at Wounded Knee, they didn’t show heroism; they showed cruelty.” In 2001, the National Congress of American Indians passed two resolutions condemning the Medals of Honor awards and called on the U.S. government to rescind them.

Historian Will G. Robinson noted that, in contrast, only three Medals of Honor were awarded among the 64,000 South Dakotans who fought for four years of World War II.

Some of the citations on the medals awarded to the troopers, at Wounded Knee, state that they went in pursuit of Lakota who were trying to escape or hide. Another citation was for “conspicuous bravery in rounding up and bringing to the skirmish line a stampeded pack mule.”

Remembrance

File:Wounded Knee 96.jpg

Wounded Knee hill, location of Hotchkiss guns during battle and subsequent mass grave of Native American Dead.

A church was built on the hill behind the mass grave in which the victims had been buried. In 1903, descendants of those who died in the battle erected a monument at the gravesite. The memorial lists many of those who died at Wounded Knee along with an inscription that reads:

“This monument is erected by surviving relatives and other Ogalala and Cheyenne River Sioux Indians in memory of the Chief Big Foot massacre December 29, 1890. Col. Forsyth in command of US troops. Big Foot was a great chief of the Sioux Indians. He often said, ‘I will stand in peace till my last day comes.’ He did many good and brave deeds for the white man and the red man. Many innocent women and children who knew no wrong died here.”

The Wounded Knee Battlefield was declared a U.S. National Historic Landmark in 1965 and was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1966.

Beginning in 1986, the group named “Big Foot Memorial Riders” was formed to continue to honor the dead. The ceremony has attracted more participants each year and riders and their horses live with the cold weather, as well as the lack of food and water, as they retrace the path that their family members took to Wounded Knee. They carry with them a white flag to symbolize their hope for world peace, and to honor and remember the victims so that they will not be forgotten.

Popular culture

Bury my heart at Wounded Knee

In his 1931 poem “American Names”, Stephen Vincent Benet coined the phrase “Bury my heart at Wounded Knee”. The poem is about his love of American place names, not making reference to the ‘battle’. However, when the line was used as the title of historian Dee Brown’s 1970 best-selling book, awareness was raised and Benet’s phrase became popularly associated with the incident, especially in music.

After the book, “Bury my heart at Wounded Knee” was used many times in reference to the battle, especially in music. In 1973, Stuttgart, Germany‘s Gila released a krautrock/psych folk album by the name.

In 1992, Beverly (Buffy) Sainte-Marie released her song entitled “Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee“, on her Coincidence and Likely Stories album.

In other music

Other artists who have written or recorded songs referring to the battle at Wounded Knee include: Walela“Wounded Knee” from their 1997 self-titled album. Nightwish (“Creek Mary’s Blood” from their 2004 album “Once” featuring John Two-Hawks); Manowar (“Spirit Horse Of The Cherokee” from the 1992 album The Triumph Of Steel ); Grant Lee Buffalo (“Were You There?” from the album Storm Hymnal2001); Johnny Cash (1972’s “Big Foot,” which is strongly sympathetic); The Indigo Girls (a cover of Sainte-Marie’s song); Charlie Parr (“1890” on his 2010 album When the Devil Goes Blind); Nik Kershaw (“Wounded Knee” on his 1989 album The Works); Southern Death Cult (“Moya”); The Waterboys (“Bury My Heart”); Uriah HeepPrimusPatti SmithRobbie RobertsonFive Iron Frenzy wrote the 2001 song “The Day We Killed” with mentions of Custard, Black Kettle, and quotes Black Elk’s account fromBlack Elk Speaks on their album Five Iron Frenzy 2: Electric BoogalooToad the Wet SprocketMarty StuartBright Eyes; and “Pocahontas” by Neil Young. On Sam Roberts’ 2006 Chemical City album, the song “The Bootleg Saint” contains line critical of the Wounded Knee Massacre. There is also a Welsh song called “Gwaed Ar Yr Eira Gwyn” by Tecwyn Ifan on this incident.

In 1973, the American rock band Redbone, formed by Native Americans Patrick and Lolly Vasquez, released the song, “We Were All Wounded at Wounded Knee”. The song ends with the subtly altered sentence, “We were all wounded by Wounded Knee.” The song reached the number-one chart position across Europe. In the U.S., the song was initially withheld from release and then banned by several radio stations.Recording artist Richard Stepp was nominated for a NAMMY award in 2008 for an album called The Sacred Journey. The last song on the album was called Wounded Knee.http://www.redbuffaloproductions.com.

In film

The battle is referenced in films such as Thunderheart (1992) and Hidalgo (2004). The 2005 film Into the West included scenes of the battle. In 2007, HBO Films released a film adaptation of the Dee Brownbestseller Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee.

In other culture

In the 1996 DC comic book Saint of Killers, written by Garth Ennis, the main character becomes a surrogate Angel of Death, reaping souls whenever men kill other men violently. The story is set in the 1880s and, near the end of chapter 4, it is said that “four years later” he was called upon at Wounded Knee.

In the 2013 video game BioShock Infinite, several main characters are veterans of Wounded Knee. The protagonist Booker DeWitt is haunted by his deeds during the battle and plunges into depression and gambling addiction as a result.

In violation of its pledge to the United Nations not to recruit children into the military, the Pentagon “regularly target(s) children under 17,” the American Civil Liberties Union(ACLU) says.

The Pentagon “heavily recruits on high school campuses, targeting students for recruitment as early as possible and generally without limits on the age of students they contact,” the ACLU states in a 46-page report titled “Soldiers of Misfortune.”

This is in violation of the U.S. Senate’s 2002 ratification of the Optional Protocol to the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Pentagon recruiters are enrolling children as young as 14 in the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps(JROTC) in 3,000 middle-, junior-, and high schools nationwide, causing about 45 percent of the quarter of million students so enrolled to enlist, a rate much higher than in the general student population. Clearly, this is the outcome of underage exposure.

In some cities, such as Los Angeles, high school administrators have been enrolling reluctant students involuntarily in JROTC as an alternative to overcrowded gym classes! In Lincoln high school, enrollees were not told JROTC was involuntary. In Buffalo, N.Y., the entire incoming freshman class at Hutchinson Central Technical High School, (average age 14), was involuntarily enrolled in JROTC. In Chicago, graduating eighth graders (average age 13) are allowed to join any of 45 JROTC programs.

“Wartime enlistment quotas (for Iraq and Afghanistan) have placed increased pressure on military recruiters to fill the ranks of the armed services,” an ACLU report says. Trying to fill its quotas without reinstituting a draft “has contributed to a rise in…allegations of misconduct and abuse by recruiters” that “often goes unchecked.”

The Pentagon also spends about $6 million a year to flog an online video game called “America’s Army” to attract children as young as 13, “train them to use weapons, and engage in virtual combat and other military missions…learn how to fire realistic Army weapons such as automatic rifles and grenade launchers and learn how to jump from airplanes,” the ACLU reports. As of Sept., 2006, 7.5 million users were registered on the game’s website, which is linked to the Army’s main recruiting website.

And when Pentagon recruiters sign 17-year-olds into the inactive reserves under the Future Soldiers Training Program, (the idea being to let them earn their high school diploma), they frequently don’t tell the children they can withdraw with no penalty.

“Over the years, we have had reports from students who were told that if they change their minds, they would be considered deserters in war time and could be hunted down and shot,” the New York City-based Youth Activists-Youth Allies said. One young woman was told if she backed out of her enlistment her family would be deported. And Bill Galvin, of the Center on Conscience and War, said one young man who changed his mind about enlisting and was told by his recruiter: “If you don’t report, that’s treason and you will be shot.”

Singled out by the Pentagon for intense recruitment drives are urban centers such as Los Angeles and New York. The latter, in which low-income students account for 51% of all high school enrollment and where 71% are black or Latino, contains three of the nation’s top 32 counties for Army enlistment. In Los Angeles, 91% of the students are non-white and 75% are low-income.

And the Coalition Against Militarism in Our Schools says the 30 JROTC programs in Los Angeles Unified School District (with 4,754 students) are “Located in the most economically depressed communities of the city.”

African-Americans make up 16% of the civilian population of military age but 22% of the Army’s enlisted personnel, the ACLU notes. It charges bluntly: “The U.S. military’s practice of targeting low-income youth and students of color in combination with exaggerated promises of financial rewards for enlistment, undermines the voluntariness of their enlistment…”

JROTC also runs a Middle School Cadet Corp for children as young as 11, that militarizes them even before they graduate elementary school. “Florida, Texas, and Chicago, offer military-run after-school programs to sixth-, seventh-, and eighth-graders…(that) involve drills with wooden rifles and military chants….and military history.” Children wear uniforms to school once a week for inspection.

While the U.S. claims “no one under age 17 is eligible for recruitment,” the Pentagon’s Joint Advertising Market Research & Studies database(JAMRS) scoops up data on eleventh graders, typically just 16. JAMRS has data on 30 million Americans between age 16 and 25 for recruitment purposes.

The ACLU says this data includes “e-mail addresses, grade point averages, college intentions, height and weight information, schools attended, courses of study, military interests, and racial and ethnic data” as well as Social Security numbers.

In the face of grim casualty reports from the Middle East, Pentagon recruiters appear increasingly desperate to make their quotas. About one in five, the New York Times reported in 2004, was found to have engaged in “recruiting improprieties” ranging from “threats and coercion to making false promises to young people that they would not be sent to Iraq.”

Given the Bush regime’s plunge into criminal wars of aggression that defy international law and the Geneva conventions, there is no reason why military recruitment of any kind should be allowed on any college campus, much less in the secondary schools. If the United States truly wished to spread democracy, (rather than seize oil fields), it would be assigning vast numbers of Peace Corps recruiters to college campuses, and the budgets of the Peace Corps and the Defense Department would be reversed.

As Eugene Debs, the presidential candidate on the Socialist ticket that went to prison for speaking against World War One, (he polled 913,000 votes in 1920) once said: “I would no more teach children military training than I would teach them arson, robbery or assassination.”

The fact that the Pentagon is having such a daunting time these days filling its ranks as it wages an illegal war speaks very well for the intelligence of the American people. That’s no excuse, though, for the Defense Department to illegally recruit impressionable children.

“News is what someone, somewhere is trying to suppress; the rest is just advertising.” – Press Magnate Alfred Harmsworth, later Britain’s Lord Northcliffe

There is a total stand down on prosecuting Israeli espionage networks here. Such a situation could never have happened unless all of our counter-intelligence, judicial and political institutions had been compromised as primary key targets of such an assault.

So why am I bringing this up again during the year end holidays? The simple answer is I am piggybacking the huge readership that Gordon Duff’s Christmas day viewpoints got, “Mossad, Bush planned, executed 9/11,” and then Kevin Barrett’s earlier piece, “9/11 truth vs. Takfiri terror.”

Press TV also did a follow up on Gordon’s article with their “Israel suppressing report on 9/11 role: Intelligence analyst,” which also got big readership.

I have been around long enough to know that is strong evidence that readers are ‘getting it,’ as they are Facebooking these important articles around. Our readers are accepting the empowerment they have through social media to leverage the work being done by the writers and Press TV in getting this critical material out to a wider audience. It encourages more people to come forward with further information so we can do deeper follow-up pieces on these long running and complicated geopolitical intrigues.

To those who might charge me with grandstanding with a provocative title, my proof is in the pudding… the stand down on prosecutions. That alone is slam dunk evidence of the depth of the penetration, when it is generally known that no one will prosecute Israeli espionage here, other than a token case every few years.

And I can share more as to how deep this goes, to the point where presidents (for various reasons) choose to support the stand down or realize they are caught in a spider web of political espionage themselves, where they do not have complete freedom of action.

When the tide turned red

The independent intelligence community knew they were dealing with a coup when Bush (43) tried to duck even having a 9-11 investigation. The lame excuse given at the time was that it would undermine national security by distracting critically needed resources to defend against the expected onslaught of new major terror acts.

We know now that not only were no terror attacks really forthcoming, but no infrastructure had been set up by the so-called terrorist volcanoes that were seething underneath their Afghanistan mountain command centers. Not a single one was ever located by any NATO unit to the present day. We got hoaxed on that. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld’s bogus presentation on CNN, complete with cartoon schematics of the non-existent al-Qaeda command centers, is part of the legend of our debased American leadership at the time, which proved itself to be our greatest national security threat.

The public outrage over Bush’s attempt to avoid any review of how 9-11 really happened forced him to pull back to his plan B, an investigation with a catch, that no testimony would be taken under oath. The intel community again was not surprised at the outrageous caveat. Our corporate media never attacked the 9-11 commission as a fraud. That showed there were playing their assigned role, an extension of the one they began on 9-11 with their bungling of reporting Building 7 collapsing while it was still standing in the back ground on live TV.

That stain on American media will never be washed off, not even with bleach. Other parts of our government went along out of fear of being targeted as a scapegoat. The ‘no testimony under oath’ gave them all a free pass to hide or give false testimony without fear of perjury charges. Its effectiveness was confirmed when 9-11 commission members afterward publicly stated they knew witnesses had perjured themselves and withheld information they claimed they didn’t have – a slam dunk obstruction of justice felony.

The US intel community… the good, the bad, and the ugly

So the loyal intel community (versus those involved with the coup) began making a Who’s Who List of 9-11 aiders and abettors. This gave them a living bread crumb trail back to the real planners and perpetrators. When the dust settled this list was in the 175 to 185 range. Then began a quiet, off-the-record series of discussions with some of the top national security and law enforcement people who were out of the Bush administration at the time, of course.

These were the results. All these top people agreed that the 9-11 investigation with no under-oath testimony was a breach of the oaths of office for everyone involved, on a scale America had never seen. They all agreed that something ‘deserved’ to be done about it, but, when looking at the names on the list, not a single person could suggest anywhere to take the information to pursue prosecutions. They frankly said no one would ever initiate prosecutions, as most of those on the list were deemed ‘Protected Entities.’

We know that teams of Israelis were arrested in New York City on 9-11 and quickly released in various ways. One included fake FBI agents showing up to take custody of one group… afterward they all just disappeared. There were two plane loads that left the country that day – one full of Arabs with the bin-Laden family – and I will let you guess who the other one was full of. Both passenger plane rosters remain classified.

Stopping the next big false flag terror attack

At this point, the focus on taking the perpetrators down shifted to trying to stop another major false flag attack when the Bush (43), neo-con, and Israeli intel teams’ push to attack Iran began losing steam. ‘They’ knew we were watching (primarily military intelligence), as word had been put out at all levels of the community to report the slightest indication that something was in progress.

The bad guys were not going to catch us flat-footed like the first time, and there are many willing to take any risk to catch them red-handed on the next try. Veterans Today editorial board member Gwenyth Todd broke up one such planned attack in Bahrain – an attack on US personnel – the usual terrorist bombing that would have killed our own people and then be blamed on Iran – which everybody knew Iran would never have done.

Iran already had a solid track record of not retaliating to provocations like their nuclear scientists being murdered because they knew that is exactly what the Western killers wanted them to do.

Gwenyth subsequently escaped an assassination attempt, the wonderful combination of quick wits and some fabulous luck. Navy personnel were involved in her attempted murder, and of course, no one has even been investigated much less charged.

Israeli espionage

The major cover for the active supporters of Israel is that intel sharing (how they like to refer to Israeli espionage here) is acceptable when done by an ally to whom we have given security pledges. But I am going to destroy that smokescreen.

Less known even among active Israel’s supporters is that one of the ways the Zios fund their intelligence operations worldwide is through their huge Walmart-sized contract espionage service. They steal everything they can, much of it with assistance of willing traitors and ideological dupes. What they don’t need themselves, they sell to the highest bidder.

Up until now, the bad guys are winning. Included among them are the major US defense companies that are transferring technology to potential adversaries, often through Israel. This is done so they can then be deemed bigger threats, which then requires more public spending on new weapons systems to protect us. This is mega-treason on the corporate level, but these same people have the red carpet rolled out for them wherever they go, especially with Congress… no guilt, no shame, no prosecution.

What are we going to do? So, you past readers all know what I am going to say now, that America’s biggest national security threat has been, and still is, right here at home. And until we decide to fight and win that war, we will never have any national security regardless of how much we spend.

The deck is rigged against us by homegrown traitors. What we have currently is an endless money-making machine that the real evil people have no intention of giving up. We are in a fight of us versus them, and yet way too many of us prefer Santa Claus do our fighting. And for those who refuse to fight back, the traitors and thieves have nothing but contempt for you. They feel you have earned and deserve the yoke. I would ask that you ponder this for your New Year’s resolution. I have already made mine. You probably know what it is.
