Washington DC Is Insane Paul Craig Roberts Infowars.com June 18, 2013 In the 21st century the two hundred year-old propaganda that the American people control their government has been completely shattered. Both the Bush and Obama regimes have made it unmistakenly clear that the American people don’t even influence, much less control, the government. As far as Washington is concerned, the people are nothing but chaff in the wind. Polls demonstrate that 65% of the US population opposes US intervention in Syria. Despite this clear indication of the people’s will, the Obama regime is ramping up a propaganda case for more arming of Washington’s mercenaries sent to overthrow the secular Syrian government and for a “no-fly zone” over Syria, which, if Libya is the example, means US or NATO aircraft attacking the Syrian army on the ground, thus serving as the air force of Washington’s imported mercenaries, euphemistically called “the Syrian rebels.” Washington declared some time ago that the “red line” that would bring Syria under Washington’s military attack was the Assad government’s use of chemical weapons of mass destruction against Washington’s mercenaries. Once this announcement was made, everyone with a brain immediately knew that Washington would fabricate false intelligence that Assad had used chemical weapons, just as Washington presented to the United Nations the intentional lie via Secretary of State Colin Powell that Saddam Hussein in Iraq had dangerous weapons of mass destruction. Remember National Security Advisor Condi Rice’s image of a “mushroom cloud over American cities?” Propagandistic lies were Washington’s orders of the day. And they still are. Now Washington has fabricated the false intelligence, and president Obama has announced it with a straight face, that Syria’s Assad has used sarin gas on several occasions and that between 100 and 150 “of his own people,” a euphemism for the US supplied foreign mercenaries, have been killed by the weapon of mass destruction. Think about that for a minute. As unfortunate as is any death from war, is 100-150 deaths “mass destruction?” According to low-ball estimates, the US-sponsored foreign mercenary invasion of Syria has cost 93,000 lives, of which 150 deaths amounts to 0.0016. In other words, 92,850 of the deaths did not cross the “red line.” But 150 did, allegedly. Yes, I know. Washington’s position makes no sense. But when has it ever made any sense? Let’s stretch our minds just a tiny bit farther. Assad knows about Washington’s “red line.” It has been repeated over and over in order to create in the minds of the distracted American public that there is a
real, valid reason for attacking Syria. Why would Assad use the proscribed weapons of mass destruction in order to kill a measly 100-150 mercenaries when his army is mopping up the US mercenaries without the use of gas and when Assad knows that the use of gas brings in the US military against him? As the Russian government made clear, Washington’s accusation is not believable. No informed person could possibly believe it. No doubt, many Americans wearing patriotism on their sleeves will fall for Washington’s latest lie, but no one else in the world will. Even Washington’s NATO puppets calling for attacking Syria know that the justification for the attack is a lie. For the NATO puppets, Washington’s money overwhelms integrity, for which the rewards are low. The Russians certainly know that Washington is lying. The Russian Foreign Minister Larov said: “The [Assad] government, as the opposition is saying openly, is enjoying military success on the ground. The [Assad] regime isn’t driven to the wall. What sense is there for the regime to use chemical arms– especially in such small amounts.” Larov is a relatively civilized person in the role of Russia’s main diplomat. However, other Russian officials can be more pointed in their dismissal of Washington’s latest blatant lies. Yury Ushakov, an aide to Russian President Putin said: “The Americans tried to present us with information on the use of chemical weapons by the [Assad] regime, but frankly we thought that it was not convincing. We wouldn’t like to invoke references to [the infamous lies of] Secretary of State Powell [at the UN alleging Iraqi WMD], but the facts don’t look convincing in our eyes.” Aleksey Pushkov, the chairman of the Russian Duma’s Foreign Affairs Committee, cut to the chase. “The data about Assad’s use of chemical weapons is fabricated by the same facility that made up the lies about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction. Obama is walking George W. Bush’s path.” Here in America no one will ever hear straight talk like this from the US presstitutes. Orwellian double-speak is now the language of the United States government. Secretary of State John Kerry condemned Assad for harming “peace talks” while the US arms its Syrian mercenaries. Washington’s double-speak is now obvious to the world. Not only Assad, but also the Russians, Chinese, Iranians, and every US puppet state which includes all of NATO and Japan, are fully aware that Washington is again lying through its teeth. The Russians, Chinese, and Iranians are trying to avoid confrontation with Washington, as war with the modern nuclear weapons would destroy all life on planet earth. What is striking is that despite 24/7 brainwashing by the presstitutes, a large majority of
the American population opposes Obama’s war on Syria. This is good news. It means more Americans are developing the ability to think independently of the lies Washington feeds to them. What the neocon nazis, the Bush/Obama regime, and the presstitute media have made clear is that Washington is going to push its agenda of world hegemony to the point of starting World War III, which, of course, means the end of life on earth. Russia and China, either one of which can destroy the United States, have learned that the US government is a liar and cannot be trusted. The Libyan “no-fly” policy to which Russia and China agreed turned out to be a NATO air attack on the Libyan army so that the CIA-sponsored mercenaries could prevail. Russia and China, having learned their lesson, are protesting Washington’s assault on Syria that Washington pretends is a “civil war.” If Syria falls, Russia and China know that Iran is next. Iran is Russia’s underbelly, and for China Iran is 20% of its energy imports. Both Russian and Chinese governments know that after Iran falls, they are next. There is no other explanation for Washington surrounding Russia with missile bases and surrounding China with naval and air bases. Both Russia and China are now preparing for the war that they see as inevitable. Washington’s crazed, demented drive for world hegemony is bringing unsuspecting Americans up against two countries with hydrogen bombs whose combined population is five times the US population. In such a conflict everyone dies. Considering the utterly insane government ruling in Washington, if human life exists in 2020, it will be a miracle. All the worry about future Medicare and Social Security deficits is meaningless. There will be no one here to collect the benefits.

NORAD’s Falcon Virgo Exercise Rolls Out in D.C. Today Kurt Nimmo Infowars.com June 18, 2013
Pentagon’s commitment to “rapid response” decimated by 9/11 stand down On June 17, the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs announced a NORAD exercise for the Washington, D.C. area to be held between June 18 and June 19. The Defense Department press release states: Exercise Falcon Virgo is designed to hone NORAD’s intercept and identification operations as well as operationally test the NCR Visual Warning System and certify newly assigned command and control personnel at JADOC. Civil Air Patrol aircraft, a U.S. Coast Guard MH-65 Dolphin helicopter and a Dover Air Force Base Aero Club Piper Seneca III will participate in the exercise. These exercises are carefully planned and closely controlled to ensure CONR’s rapid response capability. NORAD has conducted exercise flights of this nature throughout the U.S. and Canada since the start of Operation Noble Eagle, the command’s response to the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. Previous Exercises Did Nothing to Prevent 9/11 Previous “carefully planned and closely controlled” exercises failed to protect the capitol and New York City on September 11, 2001. Because of this, it is reasonable to conclude current and future exercises will also fail to protect American cities.
The Pentagon has longed claimed that the FAA did not inform it that American Airlines Flight 11 was hijacked until 8:40 on the morning of September 11. Appearing before the Kean Commission, the FAA disputed the Pentagon’s assertion. “The FAA claimed that regardless of the official notification times claimed by NORAD, phone bridges were established immediately after the initial attack (at 8:46). NORAD was informed in real time throughout of all developments, including about the plane that ultimately hit the Pentagon, the FAA said,” writes Nicholas Levis. The Pentagon claim ignores the fact that the National Military Command Center, situated in the basement of the Pentagon, monitors the airspace over the northeastern seaboard and would have detected aircraft deviating from assigned flight patterns. Additionally, military commanders would have also seen Flight 175 deviating from its flight pattern. It had done this in 1999 when it detected the Lear jet of pro golfer Payne Stewart suddenly depart from its flight path en route to Dallas. “If NORAD had been as quick to scramble or divert airborne fighters on Sept. 11, two ‘anti-terrorist’ F15′s on armed alert could have been sent south from Otis Air Force Base on Cape Cod,” notes William Thomas for 9-11 Visibility Project. “Flying at full afterburners without edging over the Atlantic to disperse their sonic footprint, two of the fastest fighters on the planet would have broken a few windows. But all the glass in the Twin Towers might have stayed intact had the ‘fast-movers’ intercepted Flight 11 over the Hudson River at least six minutes from Manhattan.” In 2003, a Democrat senator from Minnesota, Mark Dayton, accused NORAD of lying. If the air defense timeline promoted in the Kean Commission book was correct, Dayton said, then the timeline presented by NORAD at the time was wrong. “When the official story of
9/11 can be changed repeatedly without anyone ever being held accountable, we have no right to ever again expect honest government,” writes Levis. The Pentagon’s failure to communicate excuse was put in doubt by former Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta’s testimony before the National Commission On Terrorist Attacks Upon the United States on May 23, 2003. Mineta told the commission then vice president Dick Cheney had issued a stand-down order: I was made aware of it during the time that the airplane coming into the Pentagon. There was a young man who had come in and said to the vice president, “The plane is 50 miles out. The plane is 30 miles out.” And when it got down to, “The plane is 10 miles out,” the young man also said to the vice president, “Do the orders still stand?” And the vice president turned and whipped his neck around and said, “Of course the orders still stand. Have you heard anything to the contrary?” Mineta’s testimony was corroborated by counter-terrorism chief Richard Clarke. Reporter Bob Woodward also corroborated Mineta’s testimony and destroyed the government’s claim it could not track the allegedly hijacked plane because it had turned off its radar transponder. Pentagon Drills: Window Dressing for Martial Law In is reasonable to conclude that no number of “carefully planned and closely controlled” exercises will prevent another 9/11 attack, as the Pentagon claims, if NORAD is ordered to stand down as it obviously was on September 11, 2001. Falcon Virgo is another post-9/11 window dressing event designed to make it appear the Pentagon is ready and able to defend America against terrorists. It is one of a large number of similar exercises that have become routine for the Pentagon and post-9/11 planners who harbor an agenda for America. As an Infowars.com resource page on martial law demonstrates, the Pentagon is far more interested in acclimating the public to the presence of troops on the street and destroying the remnants of Posse Comitatus than defending the nation from phantom terrorists.
