    Globalization is clearly affected by the postmodern idea of power forged by global players such as corporations, powerful countries, the World Bank, MMF, UN, transnational public and secret organizations as creators of the New World Order.

    Naturally, they do not follow wishes of people who would like such creation but rather those of global players.

    The media is liberal? The power players control the media?

     REGARDING MEDIA STRATEGY, the world can be presented only according to the wishes of power structures via media as their transmission channels in function of manipulation, brainwashing and production of approval to all possible sick solutions.

    Chomsky wrote about that in many of his books. He elaborated on various strategies of manipulating public such as the strategy of ”distraction” (inversion of problem), strategy ”create problems, then offer solutions”, ”gradual strategy” in sense of gradual production of approval from the public, ”strategy of deferring” or announcement of unpopular changes, strategy ”go to the public as a little child” or wandering, strategy ”use the emotional side more than the reflection” (manipulation by fears and emotions, what Hitler’s and Stalin’s propaganda had already done),

    STRATEGY ”KEEP THE PUBLIC IN IGNORANCE AND MEDIOCRITY” in which less educated become vulnerable target for manipulation

    and production of approval, strategy of ”self-blame strengthen” to induce emotion in an individual that he/she alone is responsible for his/her position and, finally, strategy ”getting to know individuals better than they know themselves”

    TO ESTABLISH FULL CONTROL AND POWER OVER HUMAN BEHAVIOR. It all happens under the auspices of SIMULATED DEMOCRACY.

    THIS IS WHAT WE CALL DEMOCRACY OR CRAWLING TOTALITARIANISM ON THE GLOBAL SCALE. In flagranti!

    Some of these strategies can be identified on the example of manufactured refugee and immigrant crisis or Migration Period

    1. Prologue

    The trust in progress and continuation of modernization has led us into a new huge transformation of the world. Changes in all spheres of life have occured under the influence of highly developed information and communication technologies.

     THEY HAVE PAVED THE WAY FOR GLOBALIZATION AS THE PROCESS OF CONNECTING THE WORLD AS WELL AS RESHAPING IT INTO A ”GLOBAL VILLAGE”. Romantic fervor and faith in globalization have gradually diminished. Political realism, as well as every other, currently abates such romantic fervor and optimism. Globalization is clearly affected by the postmodern idea of power forged by global players such as corporations, powerful countries, the World Bank, MMF, UN, transnational public and secret organizations as creators of the New World Order.

    Naturally, they do not follow wishes of people who would like such creation but rather those of global players.

    It is evident now that anti-globalization movements have not been led by people standing on the other side of the barricade but by mighty structures which even finance movements to prevent them from crossing the line and putting everything in danger. And that is also part of the power play! The power play (technological, military, economic, informatic, media, cultural and metacultural) has indicated uneven effects of globalization, precarious balance in favor of heterogenous oligarchy, unequal distribution of wealth, uncontrolled global risk society, enormous demographic changes, mass economic and forced migrations.

     RECONSTRUCTION OF THE BALKANS IN THE AGE OF GLOBALIZATION: Power play and the power of play

    The time in which we live is marked by evergrowing influence of knowledge, information and technology, globalism and globalization as a new integration of the world at the turn of the century. It can be denoted as the postmodern condition, second modernity or liquid modernity.

    ·         Lost in the political macro cosmos of EU

    1 July 2015   The text offers a short blogosphere anatomy of a condition which I hope will turn out as a temporary failure. I intend to analyse values and provide rational guidelines for further action…

    Snippet

    Two years ago, political microcosm called Croatia has become a part of political macrocosm called the EU or the Eurosphere as a political construction of second modernity in a globalized world. And that is not irrelevant as well! THE REPUBLIC OF CROATIA BECAME A FULL MEMBER STATE OF THE EU TODAY, ON 1 JULY AD 2013.

     From that day on, in terms of phenomenological sociology focused on the analysis of everyday life, there are only few things that indicate the fact that the Republic of Croatia forms part of the everyday political reality of the EU or the Eurosphere. Croatia acts as if it is not a member of the EU and experiences serious problems with semiotics and its own interpretation to which political space does it belong. It affiliates with the Region and lives in an undefined interspace between the EU (Eurosphere) and the Region as a newly constructed imaginary geography of depersonalized states.

    snippet…

    It is a society that resembles a group of collectors of empty bottles in which there are more collectors than bottles to be found. We are not talking about a minor and insignificant sociological fact but rather an alarming one! We are talking about a poor society, a wretched and almost declassed middle class, mighty oligarchy or profiteers from war and economic transition being regarded as new pillars of society. Features of such society lost in political macrocosm of the EU (Eurosphere) include inefficient and slow public administration, high unemployment rate (in April 2015 it amounted to 17.5% or 310 936), mass emigration of younger population (around 48 000 recently emigrated) with European Comission forecast stating that 166-217 thousand of the most educated will leave the country in seven years from now on. It is a society sentenced to demographic deterioration and disappearance unless dystopian tendencies finally stop. Meanwhile prominent politicians holding executive power communicate poorly or not at all. This relates to the lack of communication from the PM and the president as well as irrational discussions on historical issues without any willingness and wish to move toward the future.

    June 30 2016 Cruz Tears Into DHS Chief Over ‘Systematic Scrubbing’ of Radical Islam

    Please read the full text for clarity and understanding

    Cruz began by comparing the number of references to “Jihad,” “Muslim,” and “Islam” found in the 9/11 commission report to the number found in several of the Obama administration’s intelligence and counterterrorism materials.

    “The word ‘jihad’ appears in that report 126 times, the world ‘Muslim’ appears in that report 145 times, the world ‘Islam’ appears in that report 322 times,” he said sternly. “And yet since that 9/11 commission report,

    DIFFERENT POLICIES HAVE COME INTO EFFECT. AND AS A MATTER OF SYSTEMATIC POLICY, THOSE TERMS ARE NO LONGER ALLOWED TO BE USED IN THIS ADMINISTRATION.”

     “And yet since that 9/11 commission report, different policies have come into effect. And as a matter of systematic policy, those terms are no longer allowed to be used in this administration.”

    BUT, CRUZ NEVER ASKED WHY

    THE UNANSWERED QUESTION IS WHY?

    Obama and his Administration have scrubbed  American History of the terms (words) associated with Radical Islamic Terrorism contained in the 2004 9-11 commission report.

    IMPORTING HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF  MUSLIMS TO THE US

    “Between 2010 and 2013, the Obama administration imported almost 300,000 new immigrants from Muslim nations — more immigrants than the U.S. let in from Central America and Mexico combined over that period… Many of the recent Muslim immigrants are from terrorist hot spots like Iraq, where the Islamic State operates. From 2010-2013, Obama ushered in 41,094 Iraqi nationals from there…

    “I take ISIS at its word when it says we want to use the refugee program to infiltrate the West,” Rep. Michael McCaul, Chairman of the House Homeland Security committee, said recently on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

    PRESIDENT OBAMA SAYS SYRIAN REFUGEES ARE LESS DANGEROUS THAN TOURISTS, AND HE’S DIRECTED HIS ADMINISTRATION TO TAKE IN AT LEAST 10,000 SYRIAN REFUGEES IN 2016.

    INDEED, Cruz Tears Into DHS Chief Over ‘Systematic Scrubbing’ of Radical Islam During Contentious Exchange

    Jun. 30, 2016 12:50pm

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) grilled Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson Thursday over the “systematic scrubbing of law enforcement and intelligence materials,” connecting the issue to the 2014 Fort Hood shooting and other attacks.

    Cruz began by comparing the number of references to “Jihad,” “Muslim,” and “Islam” found in the 9/11 commission report to the number found in several of the Obama administration’s intelligence and counterterrorism materials.

    “The word ‘jihad’ appears in that report 126 times, the world ‘Muslim’ appears in that report 145 times, the world ‘Islam’ appears in that report 322 times,” he said sternly. “And yet since that 9/11 commission report, different policies have come into effect. And as a matter of systematic policy, those terms are no longer allowed to be used in this administration.”

    Johnson told Cruz repeatedly that he has no knowledge efforts to “purge” DHS material of references to radical Islam. The DHS chief went on to claim that conceding the Islamic State is connected to Islam only gives the terrorist group what it wants.

    Cruz ultimately cut off Johnson to reclaim his speaking time.

    “You’re entitled to give speeches other times,” Cruz said. “My question was if you were aware that the information has been scrubbed.”

    Watch the entire contentious exchange below:

    Cruz also pushed back against Johnson’s assertion that removing references to radical Islam is merely a “semantic difference.”

    “When you erase references to radical jihad, it impacts the behavior of law enforcement and national security to respond to red flags and prevent terrorist attacks before they occur,” Cruz said.

    The Texas senator suggested the Fort Hood shooting may have been one of those instances. When bluntly asked by Cruz if it was a “mistake” not to respond to the “red flags” in regards to Fort Hood shooter Nidal Hasan, Johnson accused Cruz of citing incorrect information.

    “In one minute, I couldn’t begin to answer your question,” he said.

    “Pick anything,” Cruz shot back. “Pick one thing, sir.”

    “You’re assuming that the federal government in advance of the attack on Fort Hood saw all these different red flags. That’s not correct,” Johnson said.

    That’s when Cruz got specific.

    “Is it true or false that the Obama administration knew before the attack that Nidal Hasan was communicating with Anwar al-Awlaki?” Cruz asked.

    “How are you defining the ‘Obama administration,’ sir?” Johnson said.

    “The Federal Bureau of Investigation,” Cruz responded.

    “The entire Federal Bureau of Investigation? I can’t answer that question sitting here,” Johnson answered.

    “The answer is ‘yes’ and it’s public record, sir,” Cruz retorted.

    Cruz went on to cite “red flags” missed in the Boston bombings and San Bernardino attack.

    And, Cruz never asked why…

The original contains no specific mention of “Muslims” — Obama was referring to the importance of standing up for and protecting the rights of all immigrants who have become U.S. citizens, and someone altered the wording of the passage to give it a different meaning:

    ​Donald J. Trump Statement Regarding British Referendum on E.U. Membership | Donald J Trump for President

    Donald Trump8 hours ago – June 24, 2016 –
     The people of the United Kingdom have exercised the sacred right of all free peoples. They have declared their independence from the European Union and have voted to reassert control over their own politics, borders and economy. A Trump Administration pledges to strengthen our ties with a free and independent Britain, deepening our bonds in commerce, culture and mutual defense. The whole world is more peaceful and stable when our two countries – and our two peoples – are united together, as they will be under a Trump Administration.

    Come November, the American people will have the chance to re-declare their independence. Americans will have a chance to vote for trade, immigration and foreign policies that put our citizens first. They will have the chance to reject today’s rule by the global elite, and to embrace real change that delivers a government of, by and for the people. I hope America is watching, it will soon be time to believe in America again.

    UK Independence Day June 23, 2016

    The populist vote is the ONLY reason the UK got out of the EU

    What was the Silent Majority thinking?

    UK out of the EU 7 Good Reasons

    Brexit: the 7 most important arguments for Britain to leave the EU

    Vox2 hours ago Updated by on June 24, 2016, 9:10 a.m. ET

    Yesterday, Britain voted to leave the European Union— an option dubbed “Brexit. … the International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank. … and many economists believe the euro was the primary culprit.

    Argument 1: The EU threatens British sovereignty

    Argument 2: The EU is strangling the UK in burdensome regulations

    Argument 3: The EU entrenches corporate interests and prevents radical reforms

    Argument 4: The EU was a good idea, but the euro is a disaster

    Argument 5: The EU allows too many immigrants

    Argument 6: The UK could have a more rational immigration system outside the EU

    Argument 7: The UK could keep the money it currently sends to the EU

    ———————————————————-

    Argument 1: The EU threatens British sovereignty

    This is probably the most common argument among intellectual-minded people on the British right, expressed by Conservative politicians such as former London Mayor Boris Johnson and Justice Minister Michael Gove.

    Over the past few decades, a series of EU treaties have shifted a growing amount of power from individual member states to the central EU bureaucracy in Brussels. On subjects where the EU has been granted authority — like competition policy, agriculture, and copyright and patent law — EU rules override national laws.

    Euroskeptics emphasize that the EU’s executive branch, called the European Commission, isn’t directly accountable to voters in Britain or anyone else. British leaders have some influence on the selection of the European Commission’s members every five years. But once the body has been chosen, none of its members are accountable to the British government or to Britons’ elected representatives in the European Parliament.

    Argument 2: The EU is strangling the UK in burdensome regulations

    Critics like Johnson say the EU’s regulations have become increasingly onerous:

    Sometimes these EU rules sound simply ludicrous, like the rule that you can’t recycle a teabag, or that children under eight cannot blow up balloons, or the limits on the power of vacuum cleaners. Sometimes they can be truly infuriating – like the time I discovered, in 2013, that there was nothing we could do to bring in better-designed cab windows for trucks, to stop cyclists being crushed. It had to be done at a European level, and the French were opposed.

    Many British conservatives look at the European bureaucracy in Brussels the same way American conservatives view the Washington bureaucracy. Gove has argued that EU regulations cost the British economy “£600 million every week” ($880 million). (Though this figure is disputed.)

    Argument 3: The EU entrenches corporate interests and prevents radical reforms

    Labour In Rally For The Last Time In The EU Referendum Campaign Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images
    Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has been a reluctant supporter of the “remain” campaign.

    This is the mirror image of the previous two arguments. Whereas many British conservatives see the EU as imposing left-wing, big-government policies on Britain, some on the British left see things the other way around: that the EU’s antidemocratic structure gives too much power to corporate elites and prevents the British left from making significant gains.

    “The EU is anti-democratic and beyond reform,” said Enrico Tortolano, campaign director for Trade Unionists against the EU, in an interview with Quartz. The EU “provides the most hospitable ecosystem in the developed world for rentier monopoly corporations, tax-dodging elites and organized crime,” writes British journalist Paul Mason.

    This left-wing critique of the EU is part of a broader critique of elite institutions more generally, including the World Trade Organization, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Bank. Brexit supporters on the left would have a lot in common with Americans who are against trade deals like the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

    Argument 4: The EU was a good idea, but the euro is a disaster

    The United Kingdom has had a significant faction of euroskeptics ever since it joined the EU in 1973. But until recently, this was a minority position.

    “There are nearly 130 Conservative MPs who have declared for leaving the EU,” economist Andrew Lilico told me last week. “If you went back 10 years, you would have struggled to find more than 20 who even in private would have supported leaving the EU.”

    So what changed their minds? The global recession that began in 2008 was bad around the world, but it was much worse in countries that had adopted Europe’s common currency, the euro. The unemployment rate shot up above 20 percent in countries like Greece and Spain, triggering a massive debt crisis. Seven years after the recession began, Spain and Greece are still suffering from unemployment rates above 20 percent, and many economists believe the euro was the primary culprit.

    Luckily, the UK chose not to join the common currency, so there’s little danger of the euro directly cratering the British economy. But the euro’s dismal performance still provides extra ammunition to Brexit supporters.

    Many economists believe that deeper fiscal and political integration will be needed for the eurozone to work properly. Europe needs a common welfare and tax system so that countries facing particularly severe downturns — like Greece and Spain — can get extra help from the center.

    But that makes Britain’s continued inclusion in the EU awkward. Britain is unlikely to go along with deeper fiscal integration, but it would also be unwieldy to create a set of new, parallel eurozone-specific institutions that excluded the UK.

    So, the argument goes, it might be better for everyone if the UK got out of the EU, clearing the path for the rest of the EU to evolve more quickly into a unified European state.

    Argument 5: The EU allows too many immigrants

    Nigel Farage Gives His Final Speech Of The EU Referendum Campaign Photo by Dan Kitwood/Getty Images
    Nigel Farage, leader of the far-right United Kingdom Independence Party, has focused his campaign for Brexit on limiting immigration.

    The intellectual case for Brexit is mostly focused on economics, but the emotional case for Brexit is heavily influenced by immigration. EU law guarantees that citizens of one EU country have the right to travel, live, and take jobs in other EU countries.

    British people have increasingly felt the impact of this rule since the 2008 financial crisis. The eurozone has struggled economically, and workers from eurozone countries such as Ireland, Italy, and Lithuania (as well as EU countries like Poland and Romania that have not yet joined the common currency) have flocked to the UK in search of work.

    “In recent years, hundreds of thousands of Eastern Europeans have come to Britain to do a job,” British journalist and Brexit supporter Douglas Murray told me last week. This, he argues, has “undercut the native working population.”

    The UK absorbed 333,000 new people, on net, in 2015. That’s a significant number for a country Britain’s size, though according to the CIA the UK still received slightly fewer net migrants, relative to population, than the United States in 2015.

    Immigration has become a highly politicized issue in Britain, as it has in the United States and many other places over the past few years. Anti-immigration campaigners like Nigel Farage, the leader of the far-right UK Independence Party, have argued that the flood of immigrants from Southern and Eastern Europe has depressed the wages of native-born British workers. Some voters are also concerned about immigrants using scarce public services.

    “One of the causes for the great public disgruntlement,” Murray argues, is that Labour governments at the turn of the century “massively understated the numbers [of immigrants] to be expected,” creating public distrust of current pledges to keep migration under control.

    Argument 6: The UK could have a more rational immigration system outside the EU

    While many Brexit supporters simply want to reduce the amount of immigration overall, others argue that the UK could have a more sensible immigration system if it didn’t have the straitjacket of the EU.

    EU rules require the UK to admit all EU citizens who wants to move to Britain, whether or not they have good job prospects or English skills.

    “Leave” advocates argue that the UK should be focused on admitting immigrants who will bring valuable skills to the country and integrate well into British culture. They mention the point-based immigration systems of Canada and Australia, which award potential migrants points based on factors like their language and job skills, education, and age. That, “leave” advocates argue, would allow the UK to admit more doctors and engineers who speak fluent English, and fewer unskilled laborers with limited English skills.

    Argument 7: The UK could keep the money it currently sends to the EU

    The EU doesn’t have the power to directly collect taxes, but it requires member states to make an annual contribution to the central EU budget. Currently, the UK’s contribution is worth about £13 billion ($19 billion) per year, which is about $300 per person in the UK. (“Leave” supporters have been citing a larger figure, but that figure ignores a rebate that’s automatically subtracted from the UK’s contribution.)

    While much of this money is spent on services in the UK, Brexit supporters still argue that it would be better for the UK to simply keep the money and have Parliament decide how to spend it.

    —————————————————-

    The bottom line

    That  while, websites had some inaccuracies, the basic thrust of the reports was truethat a little white girl was sexually assaulted by Muslim migrants, likely refugees.

    “They got the nationality wrong and a couple of other minor points, but it was otherwise spot on,” Corcoran said.

    My code name is “Pearl Revere”
    This blog is all about US, “We the People”.

    I had hoped that setting up a blog would give “We the people” a condensed running forum, a day by day, blow by blow account from ANY American, State, County, city citizens that had knowledge or concerns?

    Where anyone could go, read, find out, relate, expose, share and comment on anything.

     ‘Nobody should be stunned’

    But nobody should be “stunned” by a criminal report involving refugees, says Ann Corcoran, who has been following the refugee program for the past nine years with the blog Refugee Resettlement Watch.

    While the original report by Infowars, bloggers and other “conspiracy”

    websites had some inaccuracies, the basic thrust of their reports was truethat a little white girl was sexually assaulted by Muslim migrants, likely refugees.

    “They got the nationality wrong and a couple of other minor points, but it was otherwise spot on,” Corcoran said.

    “And, there is no doubt that if local residents, criticized by their elected officials, hadn’t pushed this story out to the public, with a few small errors like the nationalities of the perps, the whole case would have been swept under the rug,” she said. “Heck, the assault took place almost three weeks ago!”

    CAIR says investigate sexual assault in Twin Falls, Idaho; case is a lightning rod

    Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 23, 2016

    This is what CAIR Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper said this morning on CAIR’s facebook page:

    CAIR

    3 hrs ·

    ‪#‎CAIR: Idaho prosecutor denies Syrian refugees gang-raped girl (Reuters)

    Anti-Muslim agitators and those opposed to resettlement of refugees from the Syrian civil war nevertheless seized on the incident to buttress their arguments for shutting down a refugee center in Twin Falls to prevent entry by displaced Syrians…

    Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations, said the Idaho sexual assault should be fully investigated but added the case had become a lightning rod for anti-Muslim, and anti-refugee sentiments.

    “These two forms of hostility seem to be overlapping and reinforcing each other,” he said.

    The families of the boys who are alleged to have sexually assaulted a five year old girl in Twin Falls have received eviction notices from the landlord of the Fawnbrook Apartments.  BTW, this Idaho Statesman story does admit one of the boys touched the girl and it is described as a criminal act.  (See eviction letter here)

    See also, several updates at the World Net Daily story, here, about the case (including new photo).

    Cologne attacks show Germany unprepared for migration …

    www.reuters.com/…/us-europe-migrants-germany-challenges-in-i…

    Reuters

    Jan 28, 2016 – The crowds of drunk young men had been gathering for hours outside the main railway station in Cologne on New Year’s Eve when city police .

    Cologne prosecutors say 945 complaints have been made to police over the events of that night, including 434 for sex crimes.

    The incidents have caused profound soul searching in a country that allowed in an UNPRECEDENTED 1.1 MILLION MIGRANTS LAST YEAR in what its leaders described as an act of historic generosity toward refugees.

    German media reported similar sex attacks and robberies on a smaller scale in 12 of Germany’s 16 states.

    It wasn’t what politicians promised last year. When hundreds of thousands of migrants were arriving in the European Union last year on the shores of Italy and Greece, GERMANY MADE A BOLD DECISION: ALL REFUGEES FROM THE CIVIL WAR IN SYRIA WOULD BE WELCOME, REGARDLESS OF WHERE OR HOW THEY ENTERED THE EU.

    CHANCELLOR ANGELA MERKEL SAID GERMANY WAS A RICH COUNTRY THAT COULD AFFORD TO DO ITS PART TO TAKE IN SOME OF THE WORLD’S MOST VULNERABLE PEOPLE FLEEING WAR.

    “If Europe fails on the question of refugees … then it won’t be the Europe we wish for,” said Merkel in August.

    BUT REFUGEES WERE NOT THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO ARRIVED. IN ADDITION TO THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES FLEEING SYRIA AND OTHER WAR ZONES,

    GERMANY ALSO LET IN HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE FROM OTHER COUNTRIES WITH NO VALID CLAIM FOR ASYLUM.

    Oct 4, 2015Many of the Syrian and Iraqi refugees however, do not seem to be the war and famine victims one has been exposed to in the past.

    Refugee Invasion of Europe

    By Andreas C. Chrysafis

    Oct 4, 2015

    The depressing sight of the endless exodus of migrants attempting to enter Europe raises serious questions as to why the sudden but spontaneous mass movement of thousands upon thousands of people coming from Turkey’s refugee holding camps and why now?

    The tide of more than 45,000 migrants entering EU crossings each day appear well organized and displays that the crowds know precisely where to go and how to get there. Most are landing on the shores of Greece and Italy where both of those nations are at the forefront of a refugee invasion. Is this intrusion one of desperation for survival or opportunism? It may be a bit of both…..

    Many of the Syrian and Iraqi refugees however, do not seem to be the war and famine victims one has been exposed to in the past. The majority of them are young, well educated and equipped with the latest mobile communication devices. They also paid a lot of money to human smugglers to join the various routes so they can enter Europe. Costs range between 1500 to 6000 euros and the meaning of “refugee” has now taken a new interpretation. Never in the history of mankind has such a mass movement of despairing people been experienced before.

    Is this simply a coincidence or a strategic plan of refugee dumping on others to undermine western values, social and political order? Whatever the reasons, it’s working. Member-states of the EU are now split and countries affected, are openly accusing other member states for dumping thousands of migrants on their borders.

    As civilized nations Europeans have responded positively to the unrelenting human tragedy with humanitarian aid and support BUT DEVIOUS MINDS HAVE ALSO TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF THE SITUATION.

    TURKEY, THE ISLAMIC STATE (IS) INCLUDING SMUGGLERS ARE CERTAINLY AT THE HELM OF THIS HUMAN CHAOS FOR THEIR OWN ENDS;

    BE IT POLITICAL, ECONOMIC OR RELIGIOUS FUNDAMENTALISM!

    COULD IT BE CONCEIVABLE THE IS HAS TRIGGERED A CLANDESTINE ISLAMIC INVASION AGAINST THE WEST?

    OR, COULD IT ALSO BE PLAUSIBLE THAT SOME OF THOSE HEALTHY YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN ARE EMBEDDED TERRORISTS TO UNLEASH JIHAD DEEP IN THE HEART OF EUROPE?

    SUCH QUESTIONS ARE NOT ISOLATED BUT HEADS OF STATES ARE NOW SERIOUSLY DEBATING AND QUESTIONING THE LEGITIMACY OF THE TIDE OF MUSLIM REFUGEES IN EUROPE.

    PHOBIA OR NOT, MI5 AND OTHER AGENCIES ARE ON THE ALERT AND DEFENSIVE MEASURES ARE BEING PUT IN PLACE TO COMBAT THE LIKELY JIHADIST SCENARIO FOR AN ATTACK.

    In response, Hungary has closed its borders with razor wire and has instructed its army to stop the multitudes entering its borders. That decision is in direct contradiction to the Schengen Accord principle – open borders. This demonstrates that EU policy is shambles when dealing with a crisis.

    Why are thousands of young men refusing to remain behind and defend their country against the IS evil? And, why are those young mothers risking the lives of their children climbing aboard rickety boats and crossing dangerous seas at the risk of drowning? Are they not afraid of losing their lives and if so why? That’s not normal; not unless they believe in martyrdom. If that’s the case, then a new monster is being unleashed against Europe; one that may be difficult to contain.

    Destitute refugees would normally be grateful for given safety and protection but not the current migrants. Three hundred were recently saved from drowning outside Cyprus waters, and yet,

    ungratefully refused to remain on the island by demanding to be transported to Italy;

    in Denmark they objected 700 Euros allowance as being too low;

    in Greece they angrily yelled “jihad.”

    Such questionable behavior raises more questions than answers.

    Screening thousands of those migrants at border crossings has become a nightmare and Turkey is at the epicenter of this nightmare. It is estimated that there are over three million Syrian refugees stranded and scattered throughout Turkey and most are being exploited as cheap slave labor in the farming industry. Others are trapped in holding camps across the Syrian/Turkish border. Ankara has now decided not to stop refugees leaving the camps and turned a blind eye to the trauma of tens of thousands of people on their way to the Greek islands.

    Greece, the poorest EU member-state, has been bearing the brunt of this refugee human tide, which has destabilized the entire region.

    It appears that Ankara’s refugee dumping is politically motivated and the UN including the West have failed or refused to condemn and rebuke Turkey’s behavior for triggering the current dehumanizing tsunami.

    Greece has found itself in the center of the eye of the storm. Human smugglers have systematically targeted the Aegean leaving the Greek islands to be become the frontline of the current tragedy. The humanitarian task is enormous, so enormous in fact that over 4,000 refugees keep landing each day in Lesvos alone. Providing food, shelter, and services to the swarm is becoming not only intolerable but also unsustainable.

    In fact Greece should be praised for its humanitarian contribution and support to those in need and the EU as well as the USA should start sharing the cost burden. Meanwhile, the islanders’ tranquil lifestyle has now been disrupted beyond recognition with no end in sight!

    With Turkey’s scrutiny, smugglers have now outlined a new and much safer route to northern Europe. This is a land route that would continue to dump thousands of refugees at the Thrace/Evros Greek border crossings! The destitute have been instructed through the social media to gather at the outskirts of Andrianoupolis along the Turkish-Bulgarian borders until it’s time to make the invasion into Greece and then Europe.

    Greece has once more, single handedly found itself at the frontline of this tragedy….

    All considered, there is a clear evidence of sheer hypocrisy on behalf of the United Nations when it comes to aggression. Without legal justification, they have been influenced to allow destabilization and destruction of ancient nations in the name of “democratization” and “regime change.” Starting with the Iraq war, the USA-led coalition military onslaught has been one of the major contributing factors for the current plight of millions of refugees in the Mesopotamia.

    Yet, the United States, which in fact should have behaved more civilized and mare humanely, failed to act and initiate a humanitarian program to accept its share of Syrian/Iraqi refugees in the USA. Instead, they are “passing the buck” to Europe – out of sight out of mind.

    It is absolutely incomprehensible and most brutal to allow thousands of Syrian refugees, women and children to crisscross arduous journeys across countries on foot instead of picking them up at the point of origin with safely and transport them under a well-organized UN humanitarian operation. There are solutions to their plight but certainly not the mindset to do so!

    The UN has in fact broken the fundamental principles of international law to prevent “crime of aggression” as defined by the Nuremberg Principles of “planning, preparation, initiation or waging of a war of aggression.” A war of aggression is defined as a war fought for the purpose other than self-defense defined in articles 33 and 51 of the UN Charter. Wars initiated in Iraq, Syria and Libya can be considered wars of aggression and are mostly responsible for initiating the current refugee pandemonium.

    The Nuremberg tribunal described aggression as “the supreme international crime,” and the Iraq/Libya/Syria war has caused the death of nearly one million people and has triggered the biggest refugee crisis ever seen in a civilized society. Instigated by US ambitions for “regime change” those wars rank amongst the greatest crimes the world has ever seen.

    Casus belli* has been used to justify those wars of insanity; a lunacy that nurtured and saw the rise of the Islamic State now set on a jihad against the rest of the world! If civilized nations can act so brutally, why not petty dictators or fundamentalists! Human lives simply have now become insignificant and “collateral damage” to be disposed at will because there are those who believe that: Might is Right!

    Helping nations to negotiate conflicts rather than using aggression would certainly help to defuse wars from starting.

    Foremost, helping refugees to stay in their own homeland by ending the support of rival factions would be a giant leap forward to peace and security. Stability and economic growth in one’s own country

    would certainly eliminate the need of the young to migrate abroad other than education for greater knowledge and understanding.

    Meanwhile, the merchants of death finance wars for profit by providing credit and weapons of destruction to combatants to kill one another as long as they can guarantee the loans of the loser. The current policies incite strife-torn regions to become a cesspit of brutality and the cradle of a new crop of refugees. When people have nothing to lose or aspire to, fundamentalism through hopelessness is the end result.

    Under these conditions, the exodus of refugees into Europe would not stop but would escalate unless radical changes are initiated. Unfortunately, the current problem of refugee dumping by nations is taking on a new meaning — one that nobody knows how it will end. Europe has now become the new playground…

  • Exceptionalism Made American Great

    Exceptionalism Made American Great

    American Exceptionalism stems from the United States emergence from the American Revolution.

    Political scientist Seymour Martin Lipset called it “THE FIRST NEW NATION” DEVELOPING A UNIQUELY AMERICAN IDEOLOGY, “AMERICANISM”, BASED ON LIBERTY, EGALITARIANISM, INDIVIDUALISM, REPUBLICANISM, DEMOCRACY AND LAISSEZ-FAIRE FOR BUSINESS.

    As Abraham Lincoln put it in the Gettysburg address (1863),
    Americans have a duty to see that “government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

    It is our obligation to our dead—it is our sacred obligation’ to their children and to our children-

    THAT WE MUST NEVER FORGET WHAT WE HAVE LEARNED.

    AMERICAN PEOPLE FOUGHT AND WON THE REVOLUTION, THE U.S. GOVERNMENT ACTED, WROTE, SIGNED, SEALED AND DELIVERED THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE,THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AND THE BILL OF RIGHTS TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.

    —————–
    AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM IS ONE OF THREE RELATED IDEAS.
    THE FIRST IS THAT THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES IS INHERENTLY DIFFERENT FROM OTHER NATIONS.
    SECOND IS THE IDEA THAT AMERICA HAS A UNIQUE MISSION TO TRANSFORM THE WORLD.
    THIRD IS THE SENSE THAT ITS HISTORY AND ITS MISSION GIVE THE UNITED STATES A SUPERIORITY OVER OTHER NATIONS.

    A HOSTILE TAKEOVER OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY BY DONALD TRUMP?

    A hostile takeover is the acquisition of one company (called the target company) by another (called the acquirer) that is accomplished not by coming to an agreement with the target company’s management, BUT BY GOING DIRECTLY TO THE COMPANY’S SHAREHOLDERS or fighting to replace management in order to get the acquisition …

    ON SUPER TUESDAY DONALD TRUMP’S HOSTILE TAKEOVER

    NOT BY COMING TO AN AGREEMENT WITH THE GOP’S ESTABLISHMENT

    BUT BY GOING DIRECTLY TO THE COUNTRY’S SHAREHOLDERS

    THE AMERICAN PRESIDENT MUST BE AN EXCEPTIONAL DEAL MAKER.

    TRUMP MADE AN EXCEPTIONAL DEAL WITH WORKING  AMERICAN PEOPLE.

    TRUMP- SHALL “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN”

    THE GOP HIGH COMMAND SEEMS INCAPABLE OF STOPPING HIM.

    Mar. 3, 2016, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump’s dominant start to the presidential primary process looks LIKE IT COULD CONTINUE OVER THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS, ACCORDING TO POLLS surveying upcoming state’s contests.

    Thirteen states hold primaries or caucuses over the next two weeks. Of them, TRUMP IS LEADING POLLS IN NINE, according to the RealClearPolitics average, including some of the most important, winner-take-all states.

    Polls were accurate in predicting Trump wins in New Hampshire, South Carolina, Nevada, Vermont, Virginia, Alabama, Georgia, Massachusetts, and Tennessee.

    Northern Border, Part 1

    Relations with the government of Canada remain cordial. Canadian citizens can cross into the U.S. at will, traveling and vacationing without an official visa. Even living and working in the U.S. poses little problem for the Canadian citizen; visa requirements are very lenient for our “harmless” brothers and sisters to the north.
    Soon, any American citizen wishing to fly to or from Canada and the United States will be required to present a passport.
    The Canadian border is guarded on its northern side by the Canadian Mounties.
    Anyone familiar with Canadian immigration policy will tell you that Canada is an immigrant haven and one especially desirable for those seeking some form of asylum. Permanent resident status in Canada is easy to obtain even for individuals from countries strongly suspected of supporting organized terrorism.

    Growing up in Algeria

    Ahmed Ressam was born on May 19, 1967, the eldest of seven children. He grew up in a small, poor town west of Algiers. His brother Kamel Ressam told Newsweek (May 8, 2000) that Ahmed was the first in the family to get a “modern” education. By his teenage years, according to Kamel, he had become somewhat of a “dandy,” wearing American clothes like Levi’s and Stan Smith sneakers. In 1984, Ressam developed an ulcer and was sent to Paris for treatment. In France, he read  books — banned in Algeria — about how military dictators ruined Algeria’s hopes of democracy after it gained independence from France. On his return, his brother says, Ressam was very bitter about his country. He believed that the government was corrupt and began to take up the cause of militant Islamic rebels, to his father’s dismay.

    Ressam failed the exam which would have allowed him to continue on to college after graduating from high school in 1988. He applied for jobs with the Algerian police and security forces, but was turned down. He worked for a few years in the coffee shop owned by his father. In 1992, he left Algeria and headed for France in an attempt, he testified, to find work.

    1992 + Ressam leaves Algeria for France

    In 1992, civil war broke out in Algeria when an Islamic fundamentalist party won national elections but was prevented from taking power by the military government. Many of the Islamic militants left Algeria in 1992, including Ressam. He moved to France, where he lived illegally until 1994, mostly on the island of Corsica. He says that during his time there he worked picking grapes and oranges and at a tourist resort.

    February 1994 + Ressam travels to Canada

    Using a doctored French passport with his picture crudely glued in, the 27-year-old Ressam flew from France to Montreal. At the airport, he was stopped by immigration officials who suspected that his passport was false. Ressam requested political asylum, claiming in a sworn statement that he had been tortured in Algeria and that he was falsely accused of arms trading and other terrorist activities. Apparently without checking with Algeria, France, or Interpol, Canadian immigration agents accepted his story and released him pending a hearing on his refugee status. Canada’s Immigration Minister, Elinor Caplan, later said it was not a serious offense to present a false passport to gain entry to Canada, noting that many legitimate refugees resort to doing so.

    Ressam lived in Montreal for four years. He took up residence in an apartment building later identified by Canadian and international police as the Montreal headquarters of a terrorist cell connected to the Osama bin Laden network, and, more specifically, to an Algerian terrorist organization called the Armed Islamic Group, or GIA. (See the Links and Readings section for more about GIA’s origins and activities.)

    According to Ressam’s trial testimony, during the time he lived in Montreal he worked only a week, delivering advertising leaflets. The remainder of the time, he says, he supported himself on welfare payments and by robbing tourists. Although Ressam estimates that he performed this kind of theft between 30 and 40 times during his stay in Montreal, he says he was arrested for these thefts only four times, and convicted only once. He served no jail time for that conviction, but paid a fine. Despite his arrests, he continued to draw welfare benefits of $500 per month, which he was entitled to as a potential refugee.

    During this time, Ressam says that he and an associate, Mokhtar Haouari, another Algerian refugee claimant, engaged in the trafficking of stolen driver’s license numbers, bank cards, and Social Security cards. They also provided Canadian passports and other identity documents to terrorist associates around the world.

    Read about terrorists’ use of fake passports and other identity documents.
    1995 + Application for refugee status denied

    After missing a June hearing on his application for political asylum, Ressam’s application was denied and a warrant for his arrest was issued. However, he evaded immigration authorities and was never deported. He had developed a new identity for himself by filling in the blanks of a stolen baptismal certificate form with the alias “Benni Antoine Noris.” Using the forged baptismal certificate, he then obtained a Canadian passport in that name.

    1996 + French authorities link Ressam to Algerian terrorist group

    The GIA, or Armed Islamic Group, is a violent terrorist organization based in Algeria. The first major international incident involving the GIA was the 1994 hijacking of an Air France jet in Marseilles, in which hijackers reportedly attempted to crash the plane, fully loaded with fuel, into the Eiffel Tower. The GIA also claimed responsibility for a series of bombing attacks against the Paris Metro in 1995 and 1996. In March 1996, GIA terrorists attempted to bomb the G-7 ministers’ meeting in Lille, Belgium. Evidence from a car bomb, which the police found and exploded safely, led investigators to the nearby town of Roubaix in northern France, home to a group of GIA members. When police closed in on the apartment where the suspected terrorists were, a gun battle ensued, in which one of the GIA members was shot to death. On his body, police found an electronic organizer with the Montreal telephone number of the apartment Ressam was sharing with friends from Algeria. French investigators notified CSIS, the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service, about this evidence of GIA terrorist activity in Montreal.

    According to CSIS officials, Ressam was under surveillance as part of a large investigation into a suspected terrorist ring from 1996 until he left for Afghanistan in 1998.

    March 17, 1998 + Trip to Afghanistan for jihad training

    Ressam left Montreal and headed for Afghanistan for terrorist training at the camps funded and administered by Osama bin Laden. He traveled first to Peshawar, a city in northwestern Pakistan near the Afghanistan border, and met with Abu Zubaida, a senior bin Laden lieutenant and gatekeeper in charge of the camps. According to his testimony, Ressam was approved by Zubaida and sent on to the camp in April 1998, where he received training in light arms — including machine guns and rocket propelled grenades — the use of explosives and poison gas, methods for assassination, sabotage, and urban warfare.

    It was during this time, Ressam says, that he began to plan an attack on U.S. targets in 1999. He says that he was assigned to the European-based cell of the Algerian group in the camp, and that the members of the cell planned to travel separately and meet in Canada to commence “an operation” in America before the end of 1999. Before he left for North America, Ressam says that Zubaida requested that Ressam send original Canadian passports to be supplied to other members of the network.

    February 1999 + Return to Canada

    Ressam traveled alone — on the Canadian passport under the name of Benni Noris — back to Montreal. He says that he brought with him chemicals and directions for making explosives. He flew from Pakistan to Seoul, South Korea, and then on to Los Angeles International Airport. It was this visit to the Los Angeles airport that provided him with the inspiration for his bombing target. He thought he could place a bomb, hidden in a suitcase, in the passenger waiting area. After surveilling the airport and calculating how long it would take security guards to check abandoned luggage, he caught a flight to Canada. Back in Montreal, under the name of Benni Noris, he signed a lease on an apartment and obtained a driver’s license. CSIS officials say during this period they were actively looking for Ahmed Ressam and were unaware of his alias.

    In his trial testimony, Ressam said that two members of his cell who were planning to meet him in Canada were stopped at London Immigration. As a result, they determined it was unsafe to travel. Ressam decided to continue with the operation on his own.

    April 1999 + French investigators request search warrants

    French investigating magistrate Judge Jean-Louis Bruguiere sent a formal letter to Canadian justice authorities asking for search warrants to be executed in Montreal in his investigation of Algerian terrorists, including Ahmed Ressam, who was specifically named. It took Canada six months to process the request.

    August 1999 + Plan to bomb airport takes shape

    According to his testimony, Ressam began working out the details of his plan to bomb the Los Angeles airport in the late summer of 1999. By fall, he was building timing devices for the bomb and gathering other chemical ingredients.

    During this time, he renewed an important relationship with Mokhtar Haouari, another Algerian refugee claimant living in Montreal. The two men had many political discussions, especially about the bombings which took place in the Paris Metro and at the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. Haouari expressed interest in attending jihad training in Afghanistan, and he helped fund Ressam’s activities. Haouari also connected Ressam with an associate in New York, Abdelghani Meskini, who was to be his assistant and guide in the U.S. Ressam maintains, however, that neither Meskini nor Haouari knew of the specific target of Ressam’s plan.

    Nov. 17, 1999 + Ressam goes to Vancouver

    Ressam flew from Montreal to Vancouver to gather materials and make explosives in preparation for his operation. In Vancouver, he met up with a key accomplice, another Algerian refugee named Abdelmajid Dahoumane. The two men rented a room in a motel and set up a crude bomb-making factory.

    Early December 1999 + Ressam returns to Montreal

    Ressam returned to Montreal and met with Haouari, instructing Haouari to tell his friend Meskini to meet Ressam in Seattle in a week’s time. Haouari gave Ressam a driver’s license in the name of Mario Riog. On Dec. 6 or Dec. 7, Ressam returned to Vancouver. For the next week, he and Dahoumane stayed at the Motel 2400, mixing up explosives and gathering material needed for the bomb.

    Dec. 14, 1999 + Ressam arrested near Seattle

    Ressam says that on the morning of Dec. 14, he called Meskini and told him he would be in Seattle that evening. That afternoon, he took a ferry from Victoria, B.C., to Port Angeles, Wash., with more than 100 pounds of explosives stashed in the wheelbed of the trunk of his rental car. His accomplice, Dahoumane, did not travel with him.

    At Victoria, U.S. immigration pre-clearance agents were mildly suspicious of Ressam. They made him open his trunk, but saw nothing. He presented his fake Canadian passport, and the computer check turned up no previous convictions or warrants in the name of Benni Noris. Ressam drove his rental car, with its concealed bomb, onto the ferry heading for Washington state. Upon his arrival at Port Angeles, a U.S. customs agent became suspicious of his hesitant answers to her questions, and she asked for identification. Agents began searching the car. As they discovered the explosive materials — which they at first took to be drugs — in the trunk of the car, Ressam tried to run away. He was caught and arrested.

    Aftermath and Sept. 11, 2001

    After Ressam’s arrest was televised, an urgent call to Meskini came from Haouari in Montreal. Haouari was recorded telling Meskini to change his phone number, beeper, and cell phone and to leave immediately. Police watched as Meskini ripped up airline receipts and bank machine slips and threw them into a nearby dumpster. The FBI retrieved the evidence, and both men were arrested hours later. Meskini entered into a plea agreement in which he admitted conspiring with Ressam and testified against him at trial. Haouari was extradited to the U.S. from Canada and put on trial in New York.

    On April 6, 2001, after a four-week trial in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, Ressam was convicted of nine counts, including conspiracy to commit an international terrorist act, explosives smuggling, and lying to customs officials. Facing up to 130 years in prison, Ressam agreed to cooperate with prosecutors, providing information about his activities and those of his terrorist network. As part of the agreement, he testified against Haouari at trial. His sentencing has been postponed until February 2002. Also on April 6, Ressam was convicted in absentia in France and sentenced to five years for conspiring to commit terrorist acts there.

    Abdelmajid Dahoumane escaped to Afghanistan. The U.S. State Department issued a reward of up to $5 million for information leading to his arrest and conviction. He was later caught by Algerian security forces and convicted on terrorism-related charges there.

    Just days after the terrorist attacks in the U.S. on Sept. 11, 2001, investigators interrogated Ressam at the federal detention center near Seattle. They reportedly showed him pictures of the 19 hijackers. He said he knew none of them but did provide other names of people in so-called “sleeper cells” in North America. Ressam has also added significant new information about Al Qaeda’s interest in chemical and biological weapons.
