Obama Admin Quietly Releases $1.3 Billion In Aid To Muslim Brotherhood…

(Reuters) – Secretary of State John Kerry quietly acted last month to give Egypt $1.3 billion in U.S. military aid, deciding that this was in the national interest despite Egypt’s failure to meet democracy standards.

Kerry made the decision well before an Egyptian court this week convicted 43 democracy workers, including 16 Americans, in what the United States regards as a politically motivated case against pro-democracy non-governmental organizations.

Rights groups believe Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi is retreating from democratic freedoms, notably in a new civil society law and in proposals for judicial reform that critics see as a way to purge judges perceived as hostile to the government.

Despite stating in a May 9 memo that “we are not satisfied with the extent of Egypt’s progress and are pressing for a more inclusive democratic process and the strengthening of key democratic institutions,” Kerry said the aid should go forward.

Under U.S. law, for the $1.3 billion to flow the secretary of state must certify that the Egyptian government “is supporting the transition to civilian government, including holding free and fair elections, implementing policies to protect freedom of expression, association and religion, and due process of law.”

Pentagon Seeks Another $79 Billion for Afghan War | Already Funded With $526 Billion Including War Fund

Propaganda is now legal in the United states

Well, it’s like I always say, “There’s no real reason to NOT ask for an EXTRA $79 billion for a fake BS war that kills far more civilians than supposed “terrorists”, when you could just ask for another $79 billion for a fake BS war that kills far more civilians that terrorists.”

Actually, I don’t always say that. I just made that up.

Clever. I know…

But, really… if you are already getting $526 billion dollars in taxpayer funds to continue and unnecessary war for the benefit of the rich to the detriment of the citizens, then HOW MUCH MORE do you actually NEED?

I wonder which departments funds the propaganda machine and the government owned media?

Pentagon Seeks Another $79 Billion for Afghan War | Already Funded With $526 Billion

by Jason Ditz

Pentagon officials have submitted a new request for another $79.4 billion for “overseas contingency operations,” essentially to pay for the 2014 fighting of the Afghan War. The request is above and beyond the $526 billion the Pentagon is already seeking for 2014, which was supposed to include the war’s costs.

Propaganda is now legal in the United statesRequests for supplemental war funds are nothing new for the Pentagon, but the latest request comes in the context of a growing budget crisis in Afghanistan, with the 2013 “contingency funds” already burned through as costs continue to soar.

The Pentagon’s estimates for their costs have been much too low, as the “success” that is always supposed to be just around the corner in Afghanistan never pans out, and officials conceded in recent comments that the costs of the war may continue to rise “substantially” going forward.

Officials are bragging that the 2014 request is somewhat less than the 2013 version, but the reality is that with surge troops being withdrawn, the savings were supposed to be significant. Instead, the war continues as an all-consuming sinkhole for tax money, with no end in sight and the Pentagon’s best estimates inevitably falling far short.

Boston Marathon Bombing and the Federal Government | Your Tax Dollars at Work

boston marathon bomb sniffing detection

Ben Swann reports: That we haven’t seen these types of bombs (pressure cookers in black duffel bags filled with nails, ball bearings and shrapnel) since the 1993 World Trade Center bombing  “It was the FBI presiding over the terrorists that carried out the 1993 bombing… Virtually no one would know that if it hadn’t been for… Emad A. Salem.” Swann says.

As it turns out Emad A Salem was used by our government to penetrate a faction of Muslim extremists. Apparently, Mr Salem also secretly recorded hundreds of hours of conversations with the Feds.

According to Time Magazine, law enforcement was told about the bombs that were eventually used to bomb the world trade center well in advance.

The Feds reportedly intended to allow the bombs to be built, but then switch the explosive powder for harmless, non-explosive powder. Yet, at the last minute, the plot was called off by an FBI supervisor. doesn’t that mean that the FBI, or at least that supervisor, was complicit in the bombing? I wonder what happened to him? Probably a nice retirement in a well-0ff neighborhood. Why aren’t these people prosecuted, EVER?

And, of course, it’s all too convenient that now we have laws so that anyone suspected of terrorism can be permanently imprisoned for no reason, with no trial and without even knowing what they are suspected of.  Not that the FBI or DHS is going to be imprisoned for all of their evil deeds, but these laws are very helpful in keeping everyone quiet about these facts that buck the official story line.

Meanwhile, in Boston, everyone is guilty until proven innocent as law enforcement presence is increased.

Many people found it odd that at the Boston Marathon, there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish line ahead of time.

DHS was apparently conducting bomb “drills”‘ or “Controlled explosions”, conveniently at the scene. This was tweeted ahead of time by the Boston Globe.

“We do know that since 9/11 the FBI has recruited, trained and then taken down suspected terrorists before they could carry out their plots.” Swann asks, “And is the practice of the FBI creating terror plots only to break them up before they actually happen, really making us safer? And is that what happened here?”

Another obvious question not asked by Swann is how much does it cost to hire hundreds or perhaps thousands of federal employees to constantly become involved with terrorists, fund their plots, help them with supplies and enable them to put together a functional terror plot, only to sometimes stop them at the last minute?

What are the odds that Federal agencies such as DHS would have been on the scene conducting explosion drills near the finish line at the Boston Marathon? What about Sandy Hook? DHS was nearby there too. They happened to be conducting a mass shooting drill..

We apparently have a slow economy, burdened with trillions of dollars of unnecessary debt, and yet, all kinds of federal funding can be shuffled toward terrorizing our own citizens?

Hmmm.. Seems like a waste to me.

Here’s Judge Napolitano explaining the repeated terror plots set up by the FBI

So to recap, we pay our federal agencies to terrorize us or perhaps just to train and fund others to terrorize us. And new and improved federal laws allow terrorists to be imprisoned forever without trial. But some people who are imprisoned without trial are people who are trying to expose terror plots, that the Feds don’t want exposed?

Yeah, that makes total sense…
