America is committing government-assisted suicide

by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD February 16, 2015

The United States is under direct and sustained attack by the combined forces of the tyrannical far left and radical Islam, punctuated by humiliation abroad and despair at home.

We are losing because unlike Walter Mitty, whose delusions were confined to his own head, Barack Obama has been permitted to play out his most destructive leftist and pro-Islamic fantasies in real-time from the most powerful office on the planet.

Obama behaves like a dictator not just because he is a narcissist, but because his political beliefs are, at their core, authoritarian. He represents a perfect anti-American storm, the amalgamation of twin totalitarian ideologies, Marxist-Leninism and Islamic extremism, both dedicated to the destruction of Judeo-Christian civilization.

Obama cannot counter threats from abroad because he is sympathetic to them, while simultaneously pursuing domestic policies that generate economic malaise, fiscal bankruptcy, and social chaos; conditions that undermine American democracy and are the foundation of his fundamental transformation of the country.

Obama would not be a problem, nor would he even be President, if we did not have a hopelessly corrupt political-media culture.

We are losing because the federal government has become an entity unto itself, no longer reflecting the consensus or the consent of the American people, operating outside of Constitutional restraints and, like Obama, promoting policies largely in conflict with the best interests of the country.

It is a government no longer designed to represent the people, but one solely dedicated to self-perpetuation. To politicians and journalists, truth has become a fungible commodity and, for the sake of political expediency, they have become generators for the mass production of misinformation.

Like the context of George Orwell's "Nineteen Eighty-Four," we are beginning to live in a country in perpetual crisis, growing government surveillance, misinformation and manipulation by state-sanctioned media; all governed by a privileged and oppressive political elite led by a quasi-divine party leader who enjoy an intense cult of personality and considers personal liberty as a source of unhappiness.

In essence, our government is embracing the very political and social attributes we should be opposing.

For example, speaking about the Islamic State (ISIS), Major General Michael K. Nagata, commander of U.S. Special Operations forces in the Middle East said "We do not understand the movement, and until we do, we are not going to defeat it."

Or, more to the point, perhaps we no longer understand ourselves and the values and traditions we represent; since we now appear to have difficulty defining the nature of a threat that beheads innocent civilians, immolates prisoners on camera, makes school girls sex slaves, murders religious minorities and seeks to destroy the United States.

The Obama Administration consistently genuflects at the altar of political correctness and broadcasts the diplomatic desire not to offend, seemingly more concerned with protecting the sensitivities of Islamists than the lives of their victims. This administration's egotism is only exceeded by their inability to grasp the extent of their own ignorance.

In contrast, U.S. Marines did not struggle to understand or combat the fanaticism and brutality of the Imperial Japanese military during World War Two, dampening the enthusiasm for such savage behavior with overwhelming firepower.

In the apparent attempts to dismiss Islamic extremism, Obama frequently engages in equivocation and moral equivalency as he did recently at the National Prayer Breakfast comparing the actions of the Islamic State to those of the Christian crusaders a thousand years ago.

It is the systematic suppression of facts or the altering of history that advances and sustains the self-defeating policies of the Obama Administration. It is as if the government has enlisted in the ranks of our enemies and is bearing arms against us.

When incompetence is ruled out, only mendacity remains.

  • Is it possible for you to provide some evidence to back up your position?  That is all I am asking. Really!  Having said that, I don't think any one person or country is "pure" through-and-through.  We are all sinful beings and the only one who was perfect was crucified on the cross!

  • Was not Jesus' most notable angry display in physically throwing the "money-changers" out of the temple?? Are not the people now the temple of Spirit, co-creators with Source of  "heaven upon Earth", or otherwise as we may ChOOSE??   Does not one (in unity with The One) have Much More Power & authority than we may now realize to use for either light or darkness?

    When one points a finger at another, is not usually 3+ pointing back at oneself?  Does not one recognize without what one may harbor within?  Let peace and reformation begin with me, & each one that chooses same...  Blessings 2 ALL Liberty-Lovers BEing & DOing same as each is empowered & led... each one reach one (or more) with liberating Truth that can set one free... by Grace, in Love, Peace, Joy & much More  :D

  • Are We Seeing History Repeat Itself?

    World War

    Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it” is the famed quote of George Santayana, a Spanish philosopher (1863-1952).

    I am beginning to think that the world is making its way toward a future that repeats the horrors of the last century’s wars and earlier times when Europeans battled Islam to free Jerusalem, to protect their homelands in Europe, and to eject Muslims from Spain.

    In his book, “Jihad in the West: Muslim Conquests from the 7th to the 21st Centur... ( ) historian Paul Fregosi documented the history of Islam and its attacks on European nations, characterizing jihad as “essentially a permanent state of hostility that Islam maintains against the rest of the world.” It is a Muslim sacrament, a duty they must perform.

    Occurring at the same time is the agenda of the global environmental movement and on February 4 Christina Figueres, the executive secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, said “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves; which is to intentionally transform the economic development model, for the first time in human history.”

    “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for the, at least, 150 years, since the industrial revolution.” (Italics added)

    Figueres was wrong. The objective of the 1917 Communist revolution that began in Russia and Mao’s “Great Leap Forward” (1958-1961) was the same that is now being openly embraced by the United Nations in 2015. The result of both was the death of millions.

    Humanity is under attack from an Islam that intends to impose its barbaric seventh century Sharia law and from the environmental movement’s intention to end capitalism and replace it with the income distribution central to Communism.

    Both spell a terrible future for the people of the world.

    The President of the United States is devoted to pursuing both of these goals as the defender of Islam and the opponent of “income inequality.” We have twenty-two months to survive Barack Obama’s remaining time in office.

    Obama was first elected on the promise to end the U.S. engagement in conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. After many years Americans welcomed the prospect of ceasing the loss of lives and billions those wars represented. With the rise of the Islamic State (ISIS) they are now seeing the true price of that policy. Just because we don’t want to fight a war doesn’t mean our enemy will cease to pursue it.

    We are at a critical moment in time because it is evident that Obama wants to provide Iran the opportunity to build its own nuclear weapons arsenal. It is a time as well when the military capability of the U.S. has been diminished to what existed before the beginning of World War II. All of Europe and much of Asia would have fallen under the control of Nazi Germany and the Empire of Japan if the U.S. had not stepped up to the task of defeating them.

    Relentlessly, Obama has done everything he can to reduce the size of our military fighting force and the ships, planes and other weapons needed to protect our security or support that of our allies. He has withdrawn the U.S. from its position of global leadership and left behind allies that no longer trust us and enemies who no longer fear us.

    Raymond Ibrahim of the Middle East Forum wrote on February 5 that “approximately 100 million Christians around the world are experiencing the persecution by Muslims of all races, nationalities, and socio-political circumstances.”

    At the same time, we are witnessing a new exodus of Jews from Europe, mindful of the Holocaust in the 1940s. According to the Pew Research Center, as of 2013 the Jewish population worldwide was approximately 14 million. Just over 6 million reside in Israel, another 6 million are U.S. citizens, and the rest are in Europe and elsewhere around the world. What has not changed from the last century, however, is the level of anti-Semitism and it appears to be on the rise.

    What we are witnessing is a full-scale attack on the West —Christianity and Judaism— and upon Western values of morality, democracy, and freedom.

    Whether it will erupt in a new world war is unknown, but if history is a guide, we are moving in that direction.

      Benjamin Fulford – 2/17/2015
  • You're  blind as a bat just the way you were programmed by the media. The Col has more intelligence than to block the TRUTH ! Just because it upsets a Zionist.

  • Dear Patriots, while it is very good to be informed because people perish for lack thereof. Im grateful for you brave men. I want to know how we can get out Armed forces to perform they're duties and arrest half of Congress, the Supreme Court and Obama ? I cannot call him out by his Government position name. He is not my POD. I do not recognize him. He broke his oath and broke our Laws. He is in default and commits treason every day. I want to storm the halls ofWashington.
  • I want to add something here that needs to be said... Before this discussion goes off into a Jew-Bashing tangent and Hate Israel mode. What Dr. Williams said was that the banks are owned primarily by all the same groups of people. Those people have been known by several different names; Bilderberg, Illuminaties, and a half dozen more. Many of the "Controllers are Jewish - Yes, and many are also English and or Scottish. Basically the groups of people we are really referring too here number around 250 - 300. Believe it or not that's about all there are, but these people control most of the world money supply and the flow of money around the world. Yes, Some of them are Jews. But not all the Jewish people are to blame and not all the Jewish people are included as members of these groups. Once again we see the "guilt - by-- association" attacks. We do that because it's always easier to blame a specific group or type of people for what ever is going wrong. And once again the Jews are easy to blame for everything. I'm not throwing anybody under the buss here, I'm just as angry at the money controllers are anyone else is. (Including any that happen to be Jews.)

    Now if you want to point a finger at one of them (perhaps one known by the name of George Soros, I'm all open to that)
    As I said before - To the best of my knowledge there are around 250 - 300 people involved in these major banking systems. Go back to around the 1787 to 1913 time frames and look at who was involved in trying to create a privately owned banking system that Benjamin Franklin warned us about. It was England. Ask yourselves today - Who owns the Federal Reserve? Even Congress has asked that question and they were told they were not allowed to know. But thanks to the power of the Internet, we do know. And Dr. Williams spelled it out for us. And he didn't say it was Israel and the Jews, but he did say some of them are jews, not the whole nation or people or Israel.

    • S.O.B. Soros is the major problem of America ; he was kicked out of Russia , England , France and he came here to destroy this Nation . Some Jews are bad just like Bad Americans ; but that is not an Excuse to bash all Israel .

      • Hello again brother.  Your right, except that Soros is only one of the major problems here in America. People like Obama, Biden, Holder, Pelosi, Clinton and Boehner (to name a few) have done some major damage to the American People.  They all need to be lined up in front of a firing squad!....Stay Well, Tom

        • Indeed my friend ; correct again ; I remember seeing a sign in a small town in North Texas  : nuke the district of corruption .
          Bless you Soriano , be safe my friend .
