We know that the bankers who own the US government routinely try to kill any Latin American leader who refuses to be their puppet. We know that they have mounted thousands of assassination attempts against Latin American leaders, including more than 600 against Castro alone. We know that they have been experimenting with cancer viruses, and killing people with cancer, since the 1960s.

So if you think Hugo Chavez died a natural death, I am afraid that you are terminally naïve.

The Venezuelan president himself, before he died yesterday, wondered aloud whether the US government – or the banksters who own it – gave him, and its other leading Latin American enemies, cancer.

A little over a year ago, Chavez went on Venezuelan national radio and said: I dont know but it is very odd that we have seen Lugo affected by cancer, Dilma when she was a candidate, me, going into an election year, not long ago Lula and now Cristina It is very hard to explain, even with the law of probabilities, what has been happening to some leaders in Latin America. Its at the very least strange, very strange.

Strange indeed so strange that if you think Venezuelas Hugo Chavez, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, Paraguayan Fernando Lugo, and former Brazilian leader Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva – Latin Americas top anti-US empire leaders – all just happened to contract cancer around the same time by sheer chance, you must be some kind of crazy coincidence theorist.

Am I 100% certain that the CIA killed Hugo Chavez? Absolutely not.

It could have been non-governmental assassins working for the bankers.

But any way you slice it, the masters of the US empire are undoubtedly responsible for giving Chavez and other Latin American leaders cancer. How do we know that? Just examine the Empires track record.

Fidel Castros bodyguard, Fabian Escalante, estimates that the CIA attempted to kill the Cuban president an astonishing 638 times. The CIAs methods included exploding cigars, biological warfare agents painted on Castros diving suit, deadly pills, toxic bacteria in coffee, an exploding speakers podium, snipers, poison-wielding female friends, and explosive underwater sea shells.

The CIAs assassination attempts against Castro were like a Tom and Jerry cartoon, with the CIA as the murderously inept cat, and the Cuban president as a clever and very lucky mouse. Some might even argue that Castros survival, in the face of 638 assassination attempts by the worlds greatest power, is evidence that El Presidentes communist atheism was incorrect, and that God, or at least a guardian angel, must have been watching over Infidel Castro all along.

Theology aside, the CIAs endless attempts on Castros life provide ample evidence that US authorities will stop at nothing in their efforts to murder their Latin American enemies.

John Perkins, in his bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, supplies more evidence that the bankers that own the US government routinely murder heads of state, using private assassins as well as CIA killers.

Perkins, during his career as an economic hit man, gained first-hand knowledge about how the big international bankers maintain their empire in Latin America and elsewhere. Perkins job was to visit leaders of foreign countries and convince them to accept loans that could never be paid back. Why? The bankers want to force these nations into debt slavery. When the country goes bankrupt, the bankers seize the nations natural resources and establish complete control over its government and economy.

Perkins would meet with a targeted nations leader and say: I have a fist-full of hundred dollar bills in one hand, and a bullet in the other. Which do you want? If the leader accepted the loans, thereby enslaving his country, he got the payoff. If he angrily chased Perkins out of his office, the bankers would call in the asteroids to assassinate the uncooperative head of state.

The asteroids are the worlds most expensive and accomplished professional killers. They work on contract – sometimes to the CIA, sometimes to the bankers, and sometimes to wealthy private individuals. And though their specialty is causing plane crashes, they are capable of killing people, including heads of state, in any number of ways.

This isnt just speculation. John Perkins actually knows some of these CIA-linked professional killers personally. And he has testified about their murders of Latin American leaders. Confessions of an Economic Hit Man is dedicated to Perkins murdered friends Gen. Torrijos of Panama and President Jaime Roldos of Ecuador. Both were killed by CIA-linked asteroids in engineered plane crashes.

Do CIA-linked killers sometimes induce cancer in their victims? Apparently they do. One notable victim: Jack Ruby (née Jack Rubenstein), a mobster who was himself a professional killer, and whose last hit was the choreographed murder of JFK-assassination patsy Lee Harvey Oswald in the basement of the Dallas Police Department. Ruby begged to be taken to Washington to tell the real story of the JFK murder, but instead died in prison, of a sudden and mysterious cancer, before he could reveal what he knew.

Have the CIA-bankster asteroids ever tried to kill Latin American leaders with cancer? The answer is an unequivocal yes.

Edward Haslams book Dr. Marys Monkey proves what JFK assassination prosecutor Jim Garrison had earlier alleged: Child-molesting CIA agent David Ferrie, one of President Kennedys killers, had experimented extensively with cancer-causing viruses for the CIA in his huge home laboratory. The purpose: To give Fidel Castro and other Latin American leaders cancer. (Ferrie himself was killed by the CIA shortly before he was scheduled to testify in court about his role in the JFK assassination.)

To summarize: We know that the bankers who own the US government routinely try to kill any Latin American leader who refuses to be their puppet. We know that they have mounted thousands of assassination attempts against Latin American leaders, including more than 600 against Castro alone. We know that they have been experimenting with cancer viruses, and killing people with cancer, since the 1960s.

So if you think Hugo Chavez died a natural death, I am afraid that you are terminally naïve.

PressTV – Drones can kill Americans on US soil

Ok, I guess now we see what it’s like WITHOUT the velvet glove, huh?

Drones can kill Americans on US soil
Wed Mar 6, 2013 2:13AM

sheidayi20130306021248693.jpg

The Obama administration believes it could technically use military force to kill an American on U.S. soil in an “extraordinary circumstance” but has “no intention of doing so,” U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said in a letter disclosed Tuesday.

Holder’s March 4 letter was disclosed by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who had asked whether the Justice Department believed President Barack Obama had the legal authority to order a targeted strike against an American citizen located within the United States.

The Obama administration, Holder said, rejected the use of military force where “well-established law enforcement authorities in this country provide the best means for incapacitating a terrorist threat.” But in theory, it’d be legal for the president to order such an attack under certain circumstances, Holder said.

“The question you have posed is therefore entirely hypothetical, unlikely to occur, and one we hope no president will ever have to confront. It is possible, I suppose, to imagine an extraordinary circumstance in which it would be necessary and appropriate under the Constitution and applicable laws of the United States for the President to authorize the military to use lethal force within the territory of the United States,” Holder wrote.

“For example, the president could conceivably have no choice but to authorize the military to use such force if necessary to protect the homeland in the circumstances like a catastrophic attack like the ones suffered on December 7, 1941, and September 11, 2001,” Holder continued, referring to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. Holder said he would “examine the particular facts and circumstances” if such an emergency were to arise.

Paul, who had threatened to filibuster the nomination of John Brennan as CIA director over secrecy about the U.S. drone program, said in a statement that Holder’s “refusal to rule out the possibility of drone strikes on American citizens and on American soil is more than frightening — it is an affront the Constitutional due process rights of all Americans.” Holder’s letter was first reported by Adam Serwer of Mother Jones.

Holder is scheduled to appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee for a Justice Department oversight hearing on Wednesday morning. Earlier on Tuesday, members of the Senate Intelligence Committee said the administration had agreed to allow members of the committee to see all of the Office of Legal Counsel memos relating to the targeted killing of American citizens.

Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez dies of cancer-Press TV

As mentioned in the article below, this was not a natural occurrence. If you look up the facts of what was done to Bob Marley, this case is disturbingly similar.

Those who stand up for the poor, for the people, for peace, and coming together to make the world better for ALL whave for so long been attacked, villified, hounded, and indeed even murdered. Despite those who have been programmed to equate Socialism with Fascism(which it is not) and oppression, this is a very, very sad day.

Socialism to my mind simply does not go FAR ENOUGH. Capitalism was built on slavery and imperialism, on the oppression of the many for the enrichment of the few. Not a good background, and it’s not showing any signs of improvement. (If it was really so great why do they have to murder everyone who successfully disagrees????)

I believe in Indigenism, and decolonization. Mr Chavez, unlike his critics, was a force for these things in the world. As one of the only leaders on the entire planet who enacted policies to actually HELP and protect the indigenous people oin his nation, and support the indigenous peoples across Latin America, both the man and his helpful influence will be sorely missed by many.

It is up to those who are left to remember those who have been murdered for trying to make our world better and help the truly oppressed. It is up to us to carry on the Bolivarian Revolution not only in Venezuela, and Latin America, but across our entire world.

His compatriot in the Bolivarian Revolution, President Evo Morales passed the first law recognizing the rights of Mother Earth. Let us move this Revolution forward in every country until there is no more oppression and suffering anywhere on Earth, until the Earth is more protected than the MONEY, until the waters are clean and the children are all fed.

And let us give thanks to Creator for sending us such a spirit as Hugo Chavez to stand against the powerful and bring this to the awareness of so many. I am praying for the spirit of Mr Chavez to pass in Love and Beauty, forgetting all pain and suffering, and knowing the gratitude of so many for all that he gave while here with us. May he be blessed for his good works, and forgiven his sins.

Venezuelas Hugo Chavez dies of cancer

LAST UPDATE

Wed, 06 Mar 2013 00:18:32 GMT

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has died after a two-year battle with cancer, Vice President Nicolas Maduro has announced.

Maduro, flanked by political and military leaders, made the announcement on Tuesday evening on national television.

“We have just received the most tragic and awful information. At 4:25 p.m. (2055 GMT) today March the 5th, President Hugo Chavez died,” a tearful Maduro said, directly from a Caracas military hospital.

“Long live Chavez,” the officials surrounding Maduro chanted.

“It’s a moment of deep pain,” he said in the address.

Hours before Chavezs death, the Venezuelan vice president stated that someday there will be “scientific proof” that the socialist leader was infected with cancer by “imperialist” enemies.

“We have no doubt that commander Chavez was attacked with this illness,” Maduro said.

“The old enemies of our fatherland looked for a way to harm his health,” he noted.

On February 18, the 58-year-old Venezuelan leader returned to Caracas from Cuba, where he had cancer surgery.

Chavez traveled to Havana on December 10 for a fourth operation after his cancer reappeared, despite a year and a half of treatment.

In late March 2012, Chavez began radiation treatment in Cuba after an operation in February 2012 that removed a second cancerous tumor from his pelvic region. Chavezs first tumor, which was baseball-sized, was removed in June 2011, and then he received chemotherapy.

Chavez was born in a poor family on July 28, 1954 in Sabaneta, Barinas state, Venezuela.

He graduated from the Venezuelan Academy of Military Sciences in 1975.

Chavez became involved in revolutionary movements within the armed forces in 1977.

In 1992, he led a failed attempt to overthrow the government of President Carlos Andres Perez and was jailed for two years. Despite that fact that the coup failed, the incident launched his political career.

Chavez toured the country, electrified Venezuelans with his speeches, and won his first presidential election in 1998. He also won presidential elections in 2000, 2006, and 2012.

In 2002, a group of opposition politicians and troops backed by the United States staged a coup against Chavez. He was arrested and sent to a military base on a Caribbean island.

However, just two days later, the efforts of loyal military officers and massive demonstrations by Venezuelans swept him back to power.

Chavez founded the Bolivarian Revolution to establish popular democracy and economic independence and equitably distribute wealth in Latin America.

He was one of the key players in the progressive movement that has swept across Latin America over the past few years.

PressTV – Americans find drones unconstitutional

“Privacy advocates worry that a proliferation of drones will lead to a “surveillance society” in which the movements of Americans are routinely monitored, tracked, recorded and scrutinized by the authorities. AP” (quote from article)

The above quote would almost be comical if it weren’t so disturbing. For those who have not yet noticed, the surveillance society was fully set up after 2001 and was well on its way long before (I saw evidence that every single phone call in the Us was being routinely monitored and combed for “keywords” then retained for later perusal when the phone company’s computer systems digitized the words as early as 1992).

The more of us wake up, become aware and come together, the more this panopticon will fall apart tho-never doubt the power of the People to overcome oppression, for as MLK once said the arc of history is long, but it bends toward justice!

Most Americans find drones unconstitutional: Poll
Tue Mar 5, 2013 3:15AM

aht20130305030658190.jpg

In a stark about turn, most Americans now have significant reservations about the use of drones by government and law enforcement.

Just six months ago, a survey conducted by The Associated Press and The National Constitution Center found that more Americans supported than opposed the use of surveillance drones by domestic law enforcement agencies.

In that poll, only 36 percent said that they strongly opposed or somewhat opposed police use of drones, where as 44 percent supported the idea of police using unmanned aerial vehicles to track suspects and carry out investigations.

The poll also found that only one third of Americans were significantly concerned about their privacy being eroded by the adoption of drones by police forces throughout the country.

Now, in a Reason-Rupe national survey, sixty percent of respondents believe that, to some degree, the use of drones by local law enforcement to conduct surveillance without a warrant is an invasion of personal privacy.

In addition, 47 percent of respondents to the latest poll said they believe they have a right to destroy a UAV if it flies over their house without their permission.

Shifting to overseas use of drones, In a Pew Research Center study, conducted some five months ago, more than half of the American public were found to be in support of targeted assassinations with drones, even if that meant killing American citizens.

Now, in the latest poll, 57 percent of respondents say it is unconstitutional to order the killing of Americans overseas. Even more – 59 percent – believe that the federal government abuses its power when it comes to targeted strikes.

The latest survey indicates that along with an exponential increase in the use of drones both at home and abroad has come a sustained push back from the general public.

More attention has been focused on the use of UAVs and the potential they have for eviscerating fundamental rights to privacy and the due process of law.

More and more states and cities are advancing and/or passing laws against the use of drones in their skies by government and law agencies.

Plans to roll out drones by law enforcement agencies in Washington State, Virginia, California and New York have recently met with stern opposition. Prison Planet

FACTS & FIGURES

In a major step toward opening U.S. skies to thousands of unmanned drones, federal officials in February solicited proposals to create six drone test sites around the country. AP

According to the Department of Homeland Securitys website, the U.S. government has already been using drones domestically for several years, but remains mostly mum on their missions. RT

Privacy advocates worry that a proliferation of drones will lead to a “surveillance society” in which the movements of Americans are routinely monitored, tracked, recorded and scrutinized by the authorities. AP

A data dump of government documents secured via the Freedom of Information Act, released in August shows that the roll out of domestic unmanned drones will, for the most part, be focused solely on the mass surveillance of the American people. Prison Planet

PressTV – Obama to demand Israel withdraw from West Bank: Report

Obama to demand Israel withdraw from West Bank: Report
US President Barack Obama (R) next to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (file photo)

Mon Mar 4, 2013 1:32PM GMT

US President Barack Obama is going to demand a timetable for an Israeli withdrawal from the occupied West Bank during his visit to Israel later this month, a report says.

The World Tribune quoted on Monday an unnamed Israeli official as saying that “Obama has made it clear to [Israeli
Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu that his visit is not about photo-ops, but the business of Iran and a Palestinian state.

The implication is that if Israel wont give him something he can work with, then hell act on his own, the report quoted the source as saying.

According to the report, an Israeli pullout plan could be part of an imminent US push to form a Palestinian state in the West Bank in 2014.

More than half a million Israelis live in more than 120 settlements built since the 1967 Israeli occupation of the West Bank and East al-Quds (Jerusalem).

Meanwhile, violent acts are carried out on a weekly basis in the Palestinian territories by Israeli settlers.

The Israeli settlements are considered illegal by the UN and most countries because those territories were captured by Israel in the 1967 war, and are thus seen as being subject to the Geneva Conventions, which forbid construction on occupied lands.

The Israeli regime increased its settlement activities after an upgrade in the Palestinian status at the United Nations General Assembly on November 29, 2012. The 193-member General Assembly voted 138-9 with 41 abstentions to upgrade Palestines status to non-member observer state.
