  1. Informative and precise

    Its difficult to find informative and accurate info but here I noted

  2. Title

    […]very few websites that occur to be detailed below, from our point of view are undoubtedly properly really worth checking out[…]

    NB. Final sentence:
    “First, they target a Muslim: not due to any evidence of intent or capability to engage in terrorism, but rather for the “radical” political views he expresses. In most cases, the Muslim targeted by the FBI is a very young (late teens, early 20s), adrift, unemployed loner who has shown no signs of mastering basic life functions, let alone carrying out a serious terror attack, and has no known involvement with actual terrorist groups…
    Having crazed loners get guns and seek to shoot people is, of course, a threat. But so is allowing the FBI to manufacture terror plots: in the process keeping fear levels about terrorism completely inflated, along with its own surveillance powers and budget…

    Something has to be done to justify all that terrorism spending. For all those law enforcement agents
    with little to do, why not sit around and manufacture plots to justify those expenditures, giving a boost to their pro-surveillance ideology to boot? Media outlets have a responsibility to investigate the FBI’s claims, not mindlessly repeat them while parading their alarmed faces and scary graphics.”

    It’s getting harder and harder for me to watch this and read about it, because no matter how much people try to tell others to wake up and research and investigate these types of allegations by the government, it has little affect. And the gov’t knows it.
    The Gov’t (elements within it, anyways) are getting sloppier in their lies and deeds, but they obviously don’t care, which means they already know it takes very little to convince the masses of pretty much anything they want.
    I’m working on finding work in another country. If I can’t do that I will have to wait 6 years to get an “early” retirement and will then leave. I just simply cannot take living around this anymore. The people never woke up folks. Only a few of us (relatively speaking) seem capable of forming another opinion outside the hive-mind that is permeating the USA.
    These atrocities will continue and they will always get pinned on some patsy or group. The masses are too lazy to think for themselves, and maybe they always have been….seems throughout history the masses have been herded around with their own approval.

  5. Just the fact that the prosecution has inserted the argument that “this was the second worse ‘terrorist’ attack on the country since 9/11” makes it very bad for this person to get a fair trial because it still remains to be seen just what happened on 9/11 since the official government account is riddled with lies and deception, therefore should not be used to ‘sway’ the jury. There really is “something rotten in Denmark”!!

    “Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow,
    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
    To the last syllable of recorded time;
    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
    The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
    Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
    And then is heard no more. It is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing.”

      This trial is a charade..all actors playing a role with the phony actor defendant in an induced stupor. (without a public competency hearing)

      Once you ACCEPT that, the entire exercise makes sense.

      This trial is a charade..a play within a Shakespearean tragedy starring an overly medicated actor-defendant, who for some unknown reason was coerced into the role.
      Once you accept what appears to be, the entire exercise makes sense.

      It was done by Craft, Chris Kyle’s company. They forgot about the pictures people take from their phones and pictures all over with the guys from Craft. Two guys had backpacks that were jam packed with something. Tsarnaev’s backpack had hardly anything in it, and was obviously very light.

      Rumor has it that Kyle was not going along with the plan and they killed him.
