Gang Stalking World

United we stand. Divided they fall.

The American President bows to no one.

This article has nothing to do with Gang Stalking, but I felt it was worth commenting on.

I came across this article the other day, and the wording of it surprised me. It was not vulgar, the language was not racist, yet it’s one one of the most hard hitting critiques of the American President I have come across.

I am at times not too bad with checking the temperature of the net, and this article surprised me. It was a recap of what the writer felt was an unforgivable action and that is the American President bowing to the Japanese Emperor and Empress.

[quote]A little traveling, like a little learning, can be a dangerous thing. Barack Obama on the loose in a foreign land is enough to frighten protocol officers and embarrass the rest of us.[/quote]

I did notice that American’s were upset with his bowing before foreign royalty.

See I think Americans see the president in their own way as royalty. Sure the ties to monarchy on the outside have been removed, but inside American’s want to feel proud, they want to feel that the person that is representing them will do so well. They want to know that American views and values will be upheld.

I was surprised by some of the comments, but the general consensus on some of the forums is that the President should bow to no one.

I think in my personal opinion a bow of respect can be given, but it’s all about how it is delivered that makes the difference.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/financetopics/g20-summit/

 

In the above file footage of his meeting with the King and Queen of England, he does bow, but it’s a moderate bow and it is respectfully returned in kind. Equals of sorts and I don’t recall hearing any recriminations about this bow.

I also suspect the country he was bowing to did play a role. I know many mentioned the War time dead of WWII and felt that it was disrespectful to them as well.

I believe with this President people very much wanted back the good old days. The days they felt proud, the days that they felt that they had their own royalty. The Kennedy years.

I think in part one of the reasons Obama was a shoe in for president is that he did remind many of the Kennedy days. Jackie was queen and it felt as if there was royalty. The Kennedy’s wore no crown, but many felt that they were royal in their own right.

Americans came off of feeling embarrassed at times by the last Administration, I recall many times where the last president did something goofy, or made and error, and the American people cringed with him. When the world hated his policies, they felt hated right along with him.

With this administration one of the things that was promised not overtly, but in it’s own way was good representation. People liked that fact that he had come from a good school, had a degree, and wanted to be represented well. Americans are known for being a proud and arrogant people. Most would deny it, but many in the world want to come to America and be American and that is part of the reason.

After the horrible stimulus package, where they felt that they were violated, but were not quite sure, (You were violated.) they wanted to feel secure again, proud, they don’t want more debt or wild spending being tacked on to themselves or their kids. I think that is in part why they are so cautious with this health care bill. The last previous eight years was a lot for many Americans to deal with.

With this Administration they wanted to put the wars behind, the some degree of shame they might of felt with some previous polices and actions, and I think that is why they are quick to react when they see signs of the previous admin shining forth.

The bow wounded the pride of some. Most Americans would not admit it, but they are a proud and somewhat arrogant people, which is not a bad thing. I think they just want that pride back, and this bow hurt that pride, for some.

Most people will read this article and view it as a bad thing but I don’t fully. It shows me that Americans are a loyal people, it shows me that they take their representative seriously, and it tells me that they want to feel proud and full of hope again.

It means that if the president fails to represent the American people’s well, they will be a disloyal, hurt and angry subject, but if the president represents the American people well, they have the capacity to be loyal, faithful, and to stand with him, and feel pride with him.

To me it shows that they want the president to do well, but were hurt, and again not everyone even cared about this, but some did, and those are people worth listening to. It’s struck me as one of the more strongly worded articles I had come across and I felt that it was worth noting.

Some more highlights.

[quote]This is not the way an American president impresses evildoers that he’s strong, tough and decisive, that America is not to be trifled with.[/quote]

Americans like their tough guy image. Most countries do. They want that don’t mess with our country.

It makes them feel safe, like someone will be capable of looking after their best interests.

[quote]His predecessors learned with no difficulty that the essence of America is that all men stand equal and are entitled to look even a king, maybe particularly a king, straight in the eye……

John F. Kennedy, on the eve of a trip to London, sharply warned Jackie not to curtsy to the queen.[/quote]

I take it that Jackie did not curtsy. Respecting all traditions is a fine line to walk. I know the number of times I have read that this president is narcissistic, yet a narcissist would not bow before another would they? I think sometimes it can be damned if you do, and damned if you don’t.

I would highlight more, but you will have to read the rest.

I believe Americans when represented well will let a lot go, I am not sure who handles protocols for these trips, I think it’s not a bad idea to have more than one opinion, or suggestion as to proper protocol.

Traditions can be a very limiting thing, and can hold a nation back from progress, but they can also be a beautiful thing, and everyone loves when their’s are respected and adhered to.

Ring the alarm?

A few weeks ago, I provided a post that looked like this.

[quote]

“In the democracy, they came first for the Extremists, but I did not say anything because I was not an extremist.

Then they came for the conspiracy theorists and the denialists, but I did not say anything because I was not a conspiracy theorist or a denialist.

Then they came for a the Targeted Individuals, but again I did not say anything because I was not a Targeted Individual.

Then they came for the outspoken and the some of the Christians, but I did not say anything then either, because I was not outspoken or a Christian.

Then they came for me, and by this time there was no one left to speak. ”
[/quote]
I think that this is a real breakdown of what we will see if history should start to repeat itself. Based on that, I have been spending a lot of time getting to know, via observation a specific group on the net, that is considered to be extreme, and who might be at the epicenter of such an event if they did go after extremists first.

I have been learning what they believe, why they think and feel the way they do, and looking for signs that their communities are going to be following the script above, in getting targeted first, just like the communists were first targeted in Germany.

 

Would they really come for the extremists first?

Well like many others I have been paying attention to news articles. What I would expect to see is an increase in extremist killings, kind of like how we had those mysterious killing sprees that were suppose to get us all so scared, guns would be banned. Anyways, what I have been on the alert for is an increase in this type of media hype in regards to extremists a) and b) and increase in demonizing the community.

Remember in Germany it was the communists that they came for first. That group was easy to pick on and they were the first to be attacked. Once this was left to happen, it was easy to go after other political enemies, create laws, etc, which eventually lead to rounding up of several other groups. So what I have been wondering is, could it be happening again, using different groups?

I first noticed an increase in articles, such as the Tiller killing, trying to paint him as right wing, a lone wolf, and the new domestic threat. Then there was the extremist who said he was going to kill Obama. Then in the UK, an alleged international plot by extremists to kill ethnic minorities with ricin. Keep in mind the UK, plot involved only a father and son, and the so called ricin was in a jam jar, and had been there for two years.

[quote]The two men were taken to the county jail where, the next day, in the presence of FBI agents, they began to reveal their intentions. Cowart went first, saying they planned “to go from state to state on a killing spree. Paul had mentioned a total of 88 people and beheading 14 of them.” In Schlesselman’s account, their aim was “to kill 88 people and kill 14 blacks”: either way, the numbers are symbolic among white supremacists. The eighth letter of the alphabet is H, so 88 translates as HH, “Heil Hitler”; 14 refers to the number of words in a message, legendary among the faithful, left by the white supremacist leader David Lane when he was jailed for murder: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.”[/quote]

[quote]The perennial question in such tragedies is what motivates the perpetrators. In most cases, answers are hard to find, not least because those behind the trigger are not around to give their side of the story. In the case of Cowart and Schlesselman that impediment does not exist, but there are plenty of other conundrums, not least the issue that will no doubt prove central at their eventual trial: how serious were they? Was their talk of a killing spree and dying in a hail of bullets at the feet of Obama a plot they took seriously? Or was it the ranting of two infantile fantasists?[/quote]

[quote]Federal authorities are searching for a man who has at least eight guns registered to him and has threatened to kill President Obama.
President Obama walks towards a car at the airport on Thursday in Dresden, Germany.

 The man, identified as Daniel James Murray, is charged with making threats against the president of the United States.

He recently withdrew $85,000 from a Utah bank and told a teller: “We are on a mission to kill the president of the United States,” according to court papers.

Murray is originally from New York, but was seen several times in late May in St. George, Utah, making bizarre statements at a bank.

According to a criminal complaint filed in federal court in Utah, Murray opened an account at Zions First National Bank on May 19 with a $85,000 check.
[/quote]
[quote]

“Not to be disrespectful, but if I don’t get this money, someone is going to die,” Murray said, according to the criminal complaint.

Murray would not accept a check and demanded bills no larger than $50, the complaint says.

“We are 94 million miles from the sun, and are in between the sun and moon, and the eagle that flies between them and it’s a giant step for mankind. … I have traveled thousands of miles to be here and know things that are going to happen. … the banking system will fail and people will die. … there will be chaos in the world,” Murray said.

He then made his threat against the president, the complaint says.

The next day, Murray returned to the bank, withdrew the rest of his money and closed the account.

Authorities do not know where Murray is and said he has been seen driving a blue 2001 Buick LeSabre with New York license plate number ERL 1445.

[/quote]

I was trying to look into this more, when I was again interrupted by another white supremacist plot. This case bothered me, because I know what happens when you make a large deposit such as this, investigations, etc, and then he was just allowed to withdraw the money. It sounded staged, but I did not have time to look into it further.

http://www.propeller.com/story/2009/06/05/feds-hunting-for-right-wing-extremist-39on-a-mission-to-kill-the-president39/

Allegedly he is mentally ill, but the fear has been set. But there are lot’s of questions about that story that still did not make sense.
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,525299,00.html

[quote]A teenage boy and his father are being held in Britain under the Terrorism Act over a suspected ricin poison plot by white supremacists.

Nicky Davison, 18, was arrested after police found the deadly poison ricin in a jam jar at his father Ian’s home this week.

Ian, a 41-year-old former DJ, is also being held after the anti-terror raid at the terraced house, on Myrtle Grove, Burnopfield, Durham Durham.

Nicky was initially arrested at his home in Grampian Court, Annfield Plain, on suspicion of inciting racial hatred but now both father and son are being detained under the Terrorism Act 2000.

Senior police say they believe the two could be part of worldwide terror plot targeting ethnic minorities.

Durham’s assistant chief constable Mike Barton said: “This shows that the terrorist threat in the U.K. is real and present.”

“We believe the people involved to be white supremacist extremists and one of our lines of inquiry was that they were going to target people from ethnic minorities.

[/quote]
I saw this plot and I called it bs. The son was initially arrested for inciting racial hatred, grant it not a good look, but an international plot? They searched the house and found a jam jar, that had been sitting there for two years, and it had traces of ricin. No clear evidence at the time that they were going to poison anyone with the ricin, and if that was their intent, why have it sitting in the cupboard for two years?

How they got that this is an international plot is what I am not clear on. So far they have a father and son, and every article that I had seen was just saying a father and son had been arrested, but the intent to spread fear, hatred, and racial division was there. Don’t get me wrong, I am sure this kid got himself into trouble, but the news sources are taking every opportunity to exploit these cases, to point us in the direction of the new terror threat, and yes this is what I was expecting and looking for.

So at this stage I was like, should I sound the alarm, write an article or is it just too soon? No one ever wants to sound like that lone nut on the internet alerting the audience of the deliberate intent to create a new threat, the extremist. That willy domestic terrorist that is more hard to predict that external terrorist, thus necessitating more laws, to take away our freedoms, specifically hate speech laws, but this is what I thought I was seeing.

As it was the weekend, and my image needs no further hits, I thought, maybe just wait and see. What I found was in addition to that, I found a video of Obama telling people to not question the official version of 9-11. Exhibit A.

Obama Warns not to challenge Official 9/11 Story

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cuASoVK8f9c

Now maybe Obama really does believe that 9-11 was done by terrorists, and that Osama Bin Laden is still alive, I don’t know. However for many others they do believe that 9-11 was an inside job, and as the years go by, they are not alone in that belief. It seems more and more people are joining into the speculation that 9/11 was indeed and inside job.

Whatever you believe, in a free thinking society people should be able to look for answers to questions that they have, they should be able to question, without fear of draconian laws, and labels. It seems 9-11 truthers are also a target for new labels, as some try to link them in with extremism. I also expected to see this pattern, again 9-11 truthers fall into the second category I expect to see attacked, and that’s the conspiracy theorists.

Anyways after seeing all this, I was still undecided. Then the weekend passed, and I was again in my observation mode, because I thought that with the 911 truthers being highlighted and the sudden media blip of evil extremists on the loose, I might be seeing what I had expected, but wanted to wait a little longer. Well I did not have to wait too long, because the holocaust museum shooting happened and a bit of hell broke loose.

This guy was a poster child and wet dream for extremist watchers everywhere. He was a hate filled white supremacist, had been for years. He had a history of jail time spent for taking hostages. (He claims it was a citizen arrest for the federal reserve.) Either way 4.5 years in jail. He was a supporter of the BNP. A British extremist party, who many claim have extremist or racist views. He was a 9-11 truther, and he also wanted to look into the Obama birth certificate issue. I can’t remember if there was anything else that I missed. Oh yeah he hated black people and Jewish people, and thought the world was run Jewish persons. He also ran a website, which some had listed as a hate site. I don’t know how this guy managed not to have links to Al Qaeda. Anyways, the stories were flying, and I spent days trying to monitor threads about this, articles, to get a better picture of what had happened.

So far many of the stories that I had come across were suspect in some ways, eg, the British ricin plot, the guy who seemed to have deposited money with no other intent than getting people to hear that he was threatening the president, and then this.

So the first question is was he really a hate-filled extremist that was hell bent on wipeing out someone black or Jewish before his last hurrah? On the surface it looked pretty cut and dried. His ex-wife says he wanted to go out with his boots off, his son says his hate-filled ways destroyed their life, he has a history of convictions, he is hate filled, what else do we really need to know?

Yeah I can see where most people would stop there, but as a targeted individual, and someone who looked deeper into the Jiverly Wong case, this is what I see.

Some weeks before the shooting, he told a friend that his social security had been cut, he felt that someone in Washington had visited his website saw something he posted, did not like it and then had his security benefits cut.

Most times this would sound like the ramblings of an old man who is a bit of a conspiracy theorist, or paranoid but is it possible someone was visiting his site, and saw something they did not like? Someone with the connections to have his benifits cut?

He is under investigation, many articles have made this clear, if nothing else his arrest for the hostage taking or whatever it was, would leave him on a watch list probably for life. Remember when under investigation your family and friends are contacted, and they make it almost impossible for you to have the means to support yourself.

Based on articles that I have read, this is what I put together. Sometime ago, he moved in with his son and his sons room mate when his sister had cancer. It seems that his security could not cover their home and they had to move in with the son and room mate.

http://www.cnn.com/2009/CRIME/06/11/dc.von.brunn.housemate/index.html

[quote]

“I think it was financial reasons” that led the father and his sister Alice, who was being treated for cancer, to move from their home in Maryland into a 1,800-square-foot, three-bedroom house shared by the two managers of a store renting furniture, appliances and computers, Aulbach said. With Social Security payments his sole income, von Brunn “couldn’t support himself,” Aulbach added.

Aulbach said he and the younger von Brunn agreed to share the master bedroom so his roommate’s father and aunt could have separate bedrooms, but he still paid half the $1,500 monthly rent.

[/quote]

That was several years ago.
[quote]Soon after, Eric lost his job and the von Brunns returned to Maryland, where Alice died of cancer. Eric moved in with his father in Easton, returning to Florida once in 2006 for a vacation, Aulbach said. The former roommates talked “maybe once or twice after that,” but the conversations ended when Aulbach lost Eric’s telephone number.[/quote]

From what I understand, the dad Van Brunn moved in with his son and his son’s fiance, or his son later acquired a fiance and he paid them $400.00 a month for rent.

He lived like that and ran his website. Then recently this is the part that’s tricky because I don’t have exact dates, but recently he said that his social security had been cut back. By how much I don’t know, but in one of the articles that I read, it said the cut meant that he would not be able to pay for his monthly internet connection and would have to go offline.

I have other articles saying that he told his online friends that they would not be seeing him anymore, and one final article confirming that he sold his domain name, or transferred it to another gentleman on June 01, 2009.

So we have an octogenarian, who is barely making it, living hand to mouth, who’s pleasure is talking his hate online to those who visit his site. He is hate-filled, but the hate is going into his website, till the means are cut back for whatever reason, he believed it to be someone in Washington.

The other articles say he had become despondent, talking about giving away his computer and other items. Can’t pay your internet bill, no more access, no point in keeping the computer. Was he suicidal? I don’t have the answer to that question, just what I found in the articles.

http://www.adn.com/nation/story/827687.html
[quote]At least one acquaintance said he suspected that von Brunn was preparing for a violent end.

Von Brunn had talked about giving up “precious things” – even the computer from which he spread his angry diatribes against Jews, interracial dating and the government, said fellow white supremacist John de Nugent.

“He said he had gone offline,” said de Nugent, who last spoke to von Brunn on the phone a few weeks ago.

De Nugent said von Brunn complained that his Social Security benefits had been reduced, and he suspected that his white supremacist views were the reason.

“He was unhappy with his living situation,” de Nugent said.[/quote]

I think he was more than unhappy, the other article described him as despondent. I have no idea what the cut to the social security cheque meant, or what it was going to do to his living circumstances, but the internet loss would suggest that it hit him someone what badly.
[quote] Winchester Model 6, .22 caliber rifle — a type of gun manufactured between 1908 and 1928[/quote]

He had two guns that he owned, but oddly decided to take with him, the gun that would cause the lesser damage. Why not take the other gun if he intended to go on a killing spree or go out with a bang?
[quote]Investigators found 10 rounds in von Brunn’s rifle and a signed, handwritten screed in his car. “You wanted my weapons – this is how you’ll get them,” von Brunn wrote.[/quote]

I don’t know how many rounds a winchester holds, he fired at least a few according to the reports, but there were still rounds left. I don’t like guns, and I could not find this information via a quick web search, so I left it for the time being.

If the note really is his, and not faked. (Let’s remember the Martin Luther King suicide note in his own hand writing, which was faked.) It it’s his, it might give some indication as to why he finally snapped and let the hate spill over into the real world. He said that if they wanted his guns, this is how you’ll get them. Who wanted his guns? Was he speaking in general terms or specific terms? Remember he is a convicted felon and is not allowed to own guns except on the downlow. If someone really did cut his security like he claimed, did they also find out about his guns? Did he get a letter from the tobacco and fire arms, or some other agency asking him to turn in his guns?
“It was a desperate move,” said de Nugent’s girlfriend, Margaret Huffstickler, “by a man who thought he couldn’t do any more.”

http://www.commercialappeal.com/news/2009/jun/11/von-brunn-charged-murder-holocaust-museum-shooting/

[quote]In his car, officers found a notebook with a handwritten note saying, “You want my weapons — this is how you’ll get them. The Holocaust is a lie. Obama was created by Jews,” according to a court affidavit.[/quote]

 
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/06/10/AR2009061003495.html
[quote]”He said his Social Security had been cut and that he was barely making it,” de Nugent said. “He felt it was the direct result of someone in Washington looking at his Web site.”

In one of his e-mail blasts expressing his white supremacist views, the man police sources say shot and killed a security guard yesterday at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum told readers that they shouldn’t expect to hear from him again. Von Brunn was shot and critically wounded by museum guards.

He was about to give away his computer, his primary connection to the fringe world of radical racists. He was living hand to mouth. [/quote]

His primary connection to being social with others, to being human. Though I have read that he visited neighbours, and lived with his son, his real connection to others like him, like minded people was online. Having that taken away from someone who is already hate-filled, means having their outlet taken away. Having him online is like having a cage where you can openly monitor his views and opinions, but it also gives many of these an outlet, an outlet that might other wise be expressed in other none productive ways.

In the end Van Bran is responsible for what he did, so is Jiverly Wong and all the others, but let’s not discount any other roles or factors that society might play. By this I mean killing is wrong, and their is no excuse for the actions, but let’s examine what we know about this case.

If left to spill his hatred on the internet, Van Brann, much like many other keyboard warriors, (it’s not my term, but I like it) would be just that. Keyboard warriors. The majority of people who come on the internet and spill their views, hatred what have you in my research are more likely to take action online, then offline. It gives them an outlet. Without the internet many of these people posting on extremist sites, conspiracy sites what have you, would do what people use to do, they would go out and they would find each other offline, and then maybe form movements, and then you really would have fringe groups all over the place.

As it is, most people online, not everyone, but the majority will spill their hate, opinions, and conspiracies on the internet and keep it that way. If this man had been allowed to stay online, would this shooting have happened? I don’t know the answer to this question, but my suspicion is possibly not. Was there a final trigger that sent this man over the edge into unplanned rage? I don’t have the answer to this question, just the picture that had been painted of an old man, conspiracy theorist, extremist, who spilled his opinions on the internet, where his hate was in someways more contained then we realise. This outlet due to a social security cut, which he blames on someone in Washington, was removed from him, he told the people online, whom he seems to have connected with, his community, that he would not be seeing them anymore. He then transferred his domain to someone else, and talked of giving away his computer. Remember it does not sound like he wanted to quit being online, it sounds like he had to, and I will not make excuses for what he did, but this left a hate-filled person with no outlet. I also don’t know if the cutbacks were going to interfere with any other life necessities, I have no way of knowing this.

There is a hand written note where he talks about his guns being taken away, if the letter really is his, we have to wonder if there was an actual threat? Did someone know he had these guns? He is not allowed to under the law because of his conviction. Did someone turn him in? Did he mention that he had guns on his site? Did this set him over the edge, or was it just his natural years of being hate-filled as we are lead to believe?

When I see these stories, I try to understand what is behind it, what is the story we are not being told, the picture we are not being painted. I now realise what the mainstream tells you, and the picture they paint is hardly ever the full, real, or true story, and I often go looking for the answers that others do not.

Being under investigation myself for God knows what. Remember first I was supposedly crazy. Then I have heard danger to society. I know from what I have heard back, my handing out activism material was recently used to paint me as crazy. I am none of the above.

Then I know for a fact that my recent research into extreme communities was used to paint me as something  that I am not. Me of all people. Welcome to 1984, any websites you visit, even just for research purposes, or to better understand the communities, can and will be used against you. Keep in mind that me and 109,000 other recent visitors to this site could potentially have this crap used against us, not for ever posting, but just for visiting.

So I always try to see that others side. These people could paint a saint as a demon, and this man gave them a lot of material to work with. He was clearly no saint, but was he the heartless fully unredeemable character being portrayed? Hellbent in a fit of racist glory on destroying others?

There are two sides to every story. I have read and gathered evidence and this is the side of the story that I think we are not seeing, and that might be worth examining.

As far as the fallout is concerned, it’s just what I expected. Calls for rounding up of extremists, for limiting free speech, it’s being used to attach 9-11 truthers. For the truthers, I say hang in their guys, you must be getting close to your goals or they would not be attacking you this much.

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.” Mahatma Gandhi

With the 9-11 truthers there is a scare campaign that I see happening. I see people posting stories such as “oh I was in a bar the other day and started talking about 9-11 and people tried to have me arrested,” or “oh I was talking about conspiracies, and someone tried to have me committed to a mental hospital.” I am seeing stories like this and I am thinking either the stories are fake and being used to scare people into not talking about 9-11, or people are getting desperate to shut them up. I kind of think it’s the former, but who knows.
The fall out is interesting and I am still just getting caught up on that, but here are some of the highlights.
I see people talking about rounding them up, the extremists.

I see people wanting to push ahead the hatecrime bill, that bill needs to be stopped. It will kill free speech and not stop hatecrimes. It will allow them to take down blogs they don’t like, and go after anyone who has an opinion they don’t like. Free speech is under attack and we have to all work together to stop this.

They are comparing 9-11 truther to terrorists.

They are saying that the lone wolf terrorist is harder to predict than Al Qaeda terrorists and thus more laws are needed, it’s not true, but while they have your attention this is what they are pushing forward.

This is what I was expecting, but the speed to which is came down, did catch me out of the blue. I really thought there would be a bit more time before this action came on like this, but I guess I was wrong, but on the other hand, I was watching for it, and expecting it, and this is what I can report back.

America does not torture?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/5395830/Abu-Ghraib-abuse-photos-show-rape.html

[quote]Abu Ghraib abuse photos ‘show rape’
Photographs of alleged prisoner abuse which Barack Obama is attempting to censor include images of apparent rape and sexual abuse, it has emerged.
 
At least one picture shows an American soldier apparently raping a female prisoner while another is said to show a male translator raping a male detainee.[/quote]
This article is very important. The reason it’s important is in part because it shows what happened in Abu Ghraid and in part confirms what many of already knew about the allegations of rape. There have been allegations of rape for men, women, and children. Some sites a few years back showed video of rapes, though some videos may have been false, many others are believed to have been real. This has been a disgusting and disgraceful time in American history and it’s a time I am sure many would like to forget and sweep under the rug, but if you do that, doesn’t that make you just as monstrous as Germany when they tried to cover up a lot of the Atrocities after WWII? They lied about a lot of what had happened and tried to cover it up.

I watched Obama stand before a group of Congress and declare that America does not torture.

I watched them stand up and clap in regards to this speech. I think most people like and respect Obama, but to say that just hit me. When I saw the speech I was thinking does he mean right this moment as he is saying it? Does he mean they have never tortured? I couldn’t help but think about all the Targeted Individuals men, women and children that were getting burnt in their homes on a daily basis. Who are being tortured in America and other nations. I could not help but think about what I knew about the prison Camps Abu Ghraid and Guantanamo Bay. About the pictures I had seen and some of the things that had gone on their, but here was this President, someone who America listens to and I think trusts, saying that America does not torture. How do you reconcile that? I know most countries would rather keep their dark deeds hidden, it’s the nature of the beast. It took many years for them to even admit to and then finally apologize for other dark times in American history such as the Tuskegee experiments that they conducted on Black men in the south, but eventually they did apologise.

Living your values makes safer and stronger, but apparently those values involve living in a state of denial and I don’t see how that can make anyone stronger. I think it would make you far stronger to step up to the plate as a nation admit fully what had happened, no holds barred and then apologise for it, and then let the nation start the healing process. Saying that there will be no torture under your administration does not change the past, and failing the victims, and not letting their abuse and tortures be known, still hurts and I daresay tortures them on a psychological level, the same way not dealing with slavery affected the America psyche for years down the line.

Germany is in many ways just now starting to recover from their Hitler time and have pride and love again for what Germany was, I just saw and article about that and I think it’s good, because they have finally dealt with and acknowledged some of what happened during that time period. What would the world be like in America now if people denied Slavery happened or said that it was not that bad? Well many Americans are still psychologically grappling with the legacy that left behind and when people try to brush it under the carpet, some get upset and offended, well is denying or not fully confronting the events of the last several years any better? Isn’t it just as offensive to deny the extent to which torture happened? To try to brush it under the carpet?

I think America needs to heal for what happened, but I don’t think America will heal by underplaying and denying what when on, just like slavery or any of your other dark past, you have to find a way as a nation to step up to the plate, take ownership and acknowledge what happened,  then apologize and only then can you truly start to heal as a nation.

Most would like to forget what happened, but I don’t think that will make you stronger or better in the long run, it’s not a healing or a healthy mentality to have. After 9-11 you felt hurt, violated and so you lashed back, even though Iraq was not the enemy, you did what you thought would make you feel safe, but in the end violations were committed, grievous violations and to heal, that has to at some point in the American psyche has to be dealt with.

Obama a call to service 2

https://gangstalking.wordpress.com/2008/09/25/obama-a-call-to-service/

Did everyone see this article it just came out?

Phase I

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090421/ap_on_go_pr_wh/us_obama_national_service

[quote]
By ANN SANNER

WASHINGTON – Calling on Americans to volunteer, President Barack Obama signed a $5.7 billion national service bill Tuesday that triples the size of the AmeriCorps service program over the next eight years and expands ways for students to earn money for college.

“We need your service, right now, in this moment in history. … I’m asking you to stand up and play your part,” said Obama, a former community organizer in Chicago. “I’m asking you to help change history’s course.”

Joining Obama was Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, who has been battling brain cancer. Kennedy championed the legislation with Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and the bill was named in honor of the Massachusetts Democrat.

Kennedy told the audience that included former President Bill Clinton, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former first lady Rosalyn Carter that Obama’s efforts echoed that of his late brother, former President John F. Kennedy.

“Today, another young president has challenged another generation to give back to their nation,” Kennedy said, citing his brother’s advocacy of the Peace Corps.

The service law expands ways for students and seniors to earn money for college through their volunteer work. It aims to foster and fulfill people’s desire to make a difference, such as by mentoring children, cleaning up parks or buildings and weatherizing homes for the poor.

Bolstering voluntary public service programs has been a priority of Obama, who credits his work as a community organizer in his early 20s for giving him direction in life. The president cited his work in Chicago as an example of how one person can make a difference.

“All that’s required on your part is a willingness to make a difference,” Obama said. “That’s the beauty of it; everybody can do it.”

[/quote]

I refer you to the earlier post about the Youtube video Obama a call to service, and the first post on this topic, with some key points of the speech addressed.

https://gangstalking.wordpress.com/2008/09/25/obama-a-call-to-service/

Finally a reminder about what the ACLU said.

http://blog.aclu.org/2009/04/09/show-us-your-body-or-well-feel-you-up/
[quote]One of the points that Saletan makes is that what was formerly voluntary is now mandatory. We hate to say “I told you so,” but this is the classic way that invasive technologies reach us: the authorities make them as palatable as possible to get the public to swallow them (they’ll say it’s “voluntary,” or “applied only in certain cases,” and tell you it’s chock-full of privacy protections). Then once they’re accepted, they become more and more intrusive in all the ways the ACLU always warns against. [/quote]

This model works with other things, not just invasive technologies. Today what is voluntary, might not be tomorrow, it may well be mandatory.

Man arrested for Obama threat

http://www.news24.com/News24/World/News/0,,2-10-1462_2454736,00.html

It’s finally happened. We have someone linked to conspiracy websites, that did something crazy. You knew it was coming ever since the What’s behind the conspiracy empire articles.

I am serious just glad that there was no blood shed involved, or lone gunman theory type thing.

Let’s look critically at this however. Some guy named Stevie something or other, allegedly wrote that he wanted to kill Obama.

So we can assume that he is maybe crazy? Ok, that a possibility, but since being a part of these conspiracy websites, is suppose to mean critical thinking, remember what that was and thinking outside the box, let’s look at some other theories.

I am going to say that I visit the odd conspiracy website and in the years that I have visited those sites, I have never heard anyone threaten to kill George W. Bush, and he was not a well liked president on some of these websites, but people were always like let’s impeach him, or file charges, I can’t think of any who threatened violence against him.

If Stevie what’s his name is not a complete whack-job, then could he be a government shrill, or some type of military person who was set up to do this, and could this be what the conspiracy sites have been waiting for?

Eg. On one of the main conspiracy websites, right after this happened, I saw a thread that said that they thought he was a whackjob because he believed in some type of inverted sky theory. There you have it, because you believe in weird theories you are a dangerous whack job. Watch out David Icke. They also again tried to say that sites like that draw the mentally ill, which is the same argument they tried after the what’s behind the conspiracy empires article came out. Now instead of critical arguments people are just silent, which is not a good thing.

They also distanced themselves from him, which is normal, but they asked no critical questions. There was no thinking outside of the box.

This guy had no gun, and no way of getting to the president, so why did he make the threats, was he put up to it?

When I saw his pictures I thought either of someone who was former navy seals, (military like Jessie the body) or you know one of those people that’s not too bright and could be put up to something?

Then he was also really playing up for the cameras is the other thing that I noticed right away. Even when he was being arrested, he just kept rambling trying to give the impression that he was unstable, which might have been the deliberate idea.

If the conspiracy sites don’t critically investigate this incident like they do the school shootings, then they are not doing their due diligence.

I know conspiracy theory right? Not really I draw your attention to the protest movements and what these people try to do there to give them a bad reputation. Watch this video and you will see not one, but three cops, try to incite a riot. They get stopped and fake arrested by their own, but had they succeeded, they would have ruined the reputation of that specific protest.
http://ca.youtube.com/watch?v=gAfzUOx53Rg

 

These people are on these conspiracy websites, and if they are not sprouting off garbage of their own, then they are trying to encourage others to do so, so you have to watch out. What sounds like an innocent discussion today, could be used to paint you as crazy tomorrow.

The other thing about this guy, which is hear say at this moment, but I will blog it anyways is that he allegedly harassed the former owner of Godlike Productions, till the owner thought of selling the site. If this is true, then he could be a shrill who set out to do this, so one of theirs could take over. (I am not saying this happened, cause I still have to confirm this story, but let’s start thinking critically.)

We were all or should have been waiting for an incident like this to happen, something to paint some member of the conspiracy community as crazy. I was personally expecting some kind of armed stand off, but this is worst ofcourse, cause everyone is Obama crazy, and they could use this to enact laws against these sites, so keep that in mind.

Silence is not golden

I recently saw the news that Israel had used air-strikes on Palestine and had killed over 200 people.

There were discussions about this on the forums and all over the place, but what was also being discussed was the fact that President Elect Obama had remained silent.

He apparently at the time of those postings had not come out and commented. To say that this was disappointing would be an understatement. Some of the comments were things like, is this the change he promised us? Another poster was like, I knew we could not trust him, another was more hopeful and thought maybe he was just waiting to say something. I personally don’t know what the truth is, personally I am just going to wait and see.

I can tell you however a few things that I have been seeing lately. After Obama pulled that shirt off stunt, some of the people more than ever, have been  expecting their Camelot back. At a time when things are really not looking good, something about Obama reminds these people, and I say these people, because it’s not just Americans, it remind and makes many people hopeful. They don’t just like him, many of these people, seem to love him.

The other thing about this incident is people are disappointed because they are looking to him for leadership. I know he is only the president elect currently, but that does not seem to matter to many, they are looking to Obama, for guidance and leadership.

The other thing about Obama is he reminds some people of Martin Luther King Jr, but Martin Luther King Jr, knew that “injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere”, that’s why he could not remains silent about Vietnam. If he had not spoken about Vietnam, they might have let him live, but he did not remain silent, he knew that “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy”, and thus he spoke up and spoke out, and the people loved him for it, and many are again expecting a similar type of leadership.

I just think that if Obama is not going to be that type of leader, he should speak now or forever hold his peace, cause he is just going to end up breaking their hearts, and that’s not cool. These people believe in him, and as far as the polls are concerned, he is the most popular President in the last three decades. That says a lot.

http://electronicintifada.net/v2/article6619.shtml
[quote]
Israel is “our strongest ally in the region and its only established democracy,” Obama said, assuring his audience that “we must preserve our total commitment to our unique defense relationship with Israel by fully funding military assistance and continuing work on the Arrow and related missile defense programs.” Such advanced multi-billion dollar systems he asserted, would help Israel “deter missile attacks from as far as Tehran and as close as Gaza.” As if the starved, besieged and traumatized population of Gaza are about to develop intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Obama offered not a single word of criticism of Israel, of its relentless settlement and wall construction, of the closures that make life unlivable for millions of Palestinians.

There was no comfort for the hundreds of thousands of people in Gaza who live in the dark, or the patients who cannot get dialysis, because of what Israeli human rights group B’Tselem termed “one cold, calculated decision, made by Israel’s prime minister, defense minister, and IDF chief of staff” last summer to bomb the only power plant in Gaza,” a decision that “had nothing to do with the attempts to achieve [the] release [of a captured soldier] nor any other military need.” It was a gratuitous war crime, one of many condemned by human rights organizations, against an occupied civilian population who under the Fourth Geneva Convention Israel is obligated to protect. [/quote]

As for me and my opinion. I don’t know how to not be outspoken, so let me tell you that I think air-strikes on Palestinians is wrong, it’s not nice and I condemn it. I know that Palestine is not always innocent in their actions, but I also know that they are also provoked into taking action and lashing out. The knife cuts both ways, and no party is innocent here. However one party has airplanes, and tanks, and more fire power than a bunch of rockets.

I know many people are saying well then Palestine should sit back, shut up and take it, cause they know they are going to get their butts kicked, but it doesn’t work that way. As a target of Gang Stalking and the underdog in a really horrible situation of state oppression, I am in the unique position to be able to sympathise with the underdog.

The same way I consistently hope that my fellow citizens will raise up their voices and condemn what is happening to me and other targets as unjust and do something about it, is the same way I am speaking up and saying that what is happening to these people is unjust.

Two things come to mind. Recently this year Israel closed the borders with Palestine. I found out recently what this meant. This meant that organizations like the Red Cross could not get food and other supplies into the people of Palestine. This also means that no one can leave and no one can enter, that’s means you turned them into a prison. A prison where people are starving and dying, and the people can’t leave to save themselves, and the people who are trying to get in to help them can not. That is unjust and not nice.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DSzn7XLLM7c

The other thing I found out recently is that Israel are trying to get the people of Palestine to become snitches. You know how I feel about this. If they can turn those people into snitches, then this global surveillance society is just one step closer. The U.S. has accomplished this in Iraq, and Palestine is one more area where this needs to be accomplished. Apparently imprisoning and starving people is a good way to do this. Uncool.

Israel’s secret police pressuring sick Gazans to spy for them, says report·

Treatment only offered to would-be informants

Monday 4 August 2008

Israel’s secret police are pressuring Palestinians in Gaza to spy on their community in exchange for urgent medical treatment, according to a report released today by an Israeli human rights organisation.

Physicians for Human Rights says the Shin Bet began interrogating Palestinian patients seeking permission to travel from Gaza to Israel for crucial medical help after Israel blockaded and then declared the tiny territory an enemy entity more than a year ago.

Typically, patients are taken to a small, windowless room, underground, beneath the security terminal at Erez, the only passenger crossing that remains open between Gaza and Israel, where they are questioned by Shin Bet agents for hours, the report says.

Refusal to cooperate often results in the denial of medical treatment. Based on the testimonies of more than 30 Palestinians – 11 of which are published – the report says the Shin Bet is using coercion and extortion to force patients to collaborate.

“They took me through underground passages and made me sit in another waiting room for almost 45 minutes. A man approached me and called me to another room for interrogation. He asked me to sit down and presented himself as Moshe,” Bassam al-Wahidi, a Fatah-aligned journalist, said in his affidavit to Physicians for Human Rights.

“After all my responses he said to me: ‘I want to talk to you openly when you return from Israel so that you will have an acceptable reputation on the Israeli side. Either you make contact with me and agree to my demands, or you will not get any medical treatment which will cause you to be blind and you will become a burden to your family and friends,'” Wahidi said in his affidavit.

But he said he refused and was forced to return to Gaza without receiving any treatment. Now the 28-year-old, who married a year and a half ago, is completely blind in his right eye and losing the vision in his overstrained left eye.

“I might divorce because I can’t stand in front of my wife as a disabled person,” Wahidi said .
[/quote]

I don’t have a problem condemning unjust actions when I see it. I know both parties have been at fault in the past, but this air-strike was unkind and cruel.

As a target of Gang Stalking I am the underdog at times against state oppression, my fellow citizens are used to provoke me, and other Targeted Individuals, if we lash out in public at anytime, it is the target who will be portrayed as the aggressor, and the belligerent one, who is causing all the trouble, but the unseen side of that, the side that is not reported, is that our lives are being messed with and interfered with on a daily bases, in unspeakable ways. Yet if we lash out, we are the aggressors.
The situation in the middle East is not an easy one. I often think, what would King Solomon do if he was alive today, and having to deal with this situation? For those who don’t know Solomon was an old testament King, he is famous for helping two women who both claimed a baby was theirs, he decided to see how they would react if he split the baby in half, the real mother said no go ahead and give the baby to the other woman, and the other woman was ok with splitting the baby apart. He is known for his vast wisdom, his leadership, and he was an amazing king, probably one of the best old testament Kings that Israel had. He was a just king, his wisdom endeared him to not only the people of Israel but to those far and wide, even causing the Queen of Sheba to come from her nation to pay him a visit.

I often wonder what such leaders of the past would say about the situations in this time period. What would Martin Luther King Jr say? What would Solomon do? We can only guess in some cases, but we do have leaders in this time period, some of which the people are counting on to make the right decisions for them and others. History will remember this time and the actions or in actions that accompanied it. I would like this time to be remembered as a time of change for the better, not for it’s silence and in actions.

The Unforgivable Word

http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/al_qaida_obama

I woke up to this headline. Al-Qaeda attacks Obama. Terrorist group uses racial slur to attack president elect.

I am going what? So I delve further into the article, because I am pretty sure, terrorist in the desert or not, whatever you want to think of them. I am hoping they know better than to use the other N word.

[quote]
Ayman al-Zawahri’s message appeared mainly aimed at persuading Muslims and Arabs that Obama does not represent a change in U.S. policies.
He said in the message that Obama is “the direct opposite of honourable black Americans” like Malcolm X, the 1960s African-American rights leader.
In al-Qaida’s first response to Obama’s victory, al-Zawahri also called him – along with former and current secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice – “house Negroes.” [/quote]

So he didn’t use the unforgivable word. Also this argument is one that I have heard from several other people, black or white. Some people do think that there is no change. Democrat or Republican, black or white it’s the same agenda.
I also remember recently that Jesse Jackson had to apologize for his remark where he said he felt that Obama was talking down to black people.

http://articles.latimes.com/2008/jul/10/nation/na-jackson10

[quote]“Barack, he’s talking down to black people,” Jackson said in a short clip the network aired this afternoon on “Special Report with Brit Hume.”

[/quote]
Now it’s not as flattering as being called the Magic Negro, which I still don’t see how that was meant to be flattering, but apparently it was, when used by the L.A. Times.
http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/la-oe-ehrenstein19mar19,0,5335087.story?coll=la-opinion-center

[quote]

But it’s clear that Obama also is running for an equally important unelected office, in the province of the popular imagination — the “Magic Negro.”
The Magic Negro is a figure of postmodern folk culture, coined by snarky 20th century sociologists, to explain a cultural figure who emerged in the wake of Brown vs. Board of Education. “He has no past, he simply appears one day to help the white protagonist,” reads the description on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magical_Negro .

[/quote]
This follows on the heals of Lindsey Lohan, getting some heat for using the term Colored. I didn’t watch the video, but even if she used the term colored, it’s antiquated, but not generally in many circles considered racist.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/11/11/lindsay-lohan-calls-obama_n_143087.html

[quote]Lindsay Lohan is happy Barack Obama got elected after campaigning for him this year. But, she referred to the President-Elect with a mumbled adjective at the beginning of an interview with Access Hollywood’s Maria Menounos that some say is offensive. Does she say “good” or “colored?”

“It’s an amazing feeling. It’s our first [mumble] president.”

[/quote]
So let’s recap here people, so I don’t keep seeing those crazy headlines.

Colored is an antiquated word, but at the time of it’s popularity was I don’t think primarily a negative word. (Though it was used as a divisive word)

Black the preferred term outside of America, and the Afro American term. In Canada, the UK, and many other parts of the world Black is the preferred term.

Negro, Not a popular term in this time period, but still not considered a racist word. In fact the term is still used by the United Negro College Fund. Because a mind is a terrible thing to waste.

The last and final word which I will not debate here, but I still think falls into the unforgivable word category. The N_gger word. Used by some urban kids and some adults, the word has throughout history had a negative connotation. It still does in many circles. Urban culture has tried to reclaim and recapture the term and often use it amongst themselves, much to the shagrin of people like Oprah and many others in the black community and outside, who find the term highly offensive.

The term is a dubious one, because depending on who uses it, it’s often over looked in some cases, Eg. If used by a black person, vs if used by another race. Some people think that the term should be not used by anyone. (I am in agreement with this.)

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/6406625.stm

[quote]The city council of New York has voted to ban the use of the word “nigger”.

The resolution to ban the so-called “N-word” is largely symbolic as it carries no weight in law and those who use the word would face no punishment.

But it reflects a growing unease that the racial slur is now part of everyday conversation and that the taboo against its usage has been swept away.

The word is in common usage among sections of the younger generation in the United States.

‘Throwback to slavery’

For many years the “N-word” has been used by young African Americans who have appropriated it as a, perhaps ironic, term of endearment.

Now, other ethnic groups have started to use it in a similar context, and those who insist it should be banned are growing increasingly outraged.

Many African American community leaders, with the backing of fellow lawmakers, say it is offensive in every context and that is a word which should never be said.
[/quote]

So that’s a little bit of a history lesson on words that are popping up left right and center and dubious headlines that I keep coming across. Let’s not go crazy people. Obama hopefully will not be the last black (bi-racial) president ever. I think it’s great the media is taking care to make sure that he feels welcome and people are being sensitive on his behalf, wither it’s making sure that the colored term is not used again, or other precautions, but let’s keep things in context here.
Here are some pics of Obama with his grand parents.

Obama. A call to service.

These are Obama’s plans for American Citizens. I would like to get some general feedback from American’s and others about what they think of Obama’s plans for the future and their children’s futures.

 

Quote:
I will ask for your service and your active citizenship when I am President of the United States.

Quote:
This will not be a call issued in one speech or one program – this will be a central cause of my presidency. We will ask Americans to serve. We will create new opportunities for Americans to serve. And we will direct that service to our most pressing national challenges.

Quote:
That’s why I will call on a new generation of Americans to join our military, and complete the effort to increase our ground forces by 65,000 soldiers and 27,000 Marines.

Quote:
Today, AmeriCorps – our nation’s network of local, state and national service programs – has 75,000 slots. They tap America’s greatest resource – our citizens.

Quote:
As President, I will expand AmeriCorps to 250,000 slots,

Quote:
People of all ages, stations, and skills will be asked to serve. Because when it comes to the challenges we face, the American people are not the problem – they are the answer.

Quote:
We’ll call on Americans to join an Energy Corps to conduct renewable energy and environmental cleanup projects in their neighborhoods. We’ll enlist veterans to help other vets find jobs and support, and to be there for our military families. And we’ll also grow our Foreign Service, open consulates that have been shuttered, and double the size of the Peace Corps by 2011 to renew our diplomacy.

Quote:
And we’ll use technology to connect people to service. We’ll expand USA Freedom Corps to create an online network where Americans can browse opportunities to volunteer. You’ll be able to search by category, time commitment, and skill sets; you’ll be able to rate service opportunities, build service networks, and create your own service pages to track your hours and activities.

Quote:
So when I’m President, I will set a goal for all American middle and high school students to perform 50 hours of service a year, and for all college students to perform 100 hours of service a year. This means that by the time you graduate college, you’ll have done 17 weeks of service.

Quote:
At the middle and high school level, we’ll make federal assistance conditional on school districts developing service programs, and give schools resources to offer new service opportunities. At the community level, we’ll develop public-private partnerships so students can serve more outside the classroom.

For college students, I have proposed an annual American Opportunity Tax Credit of $4,000. To receive this credit, we’ll require 100 hours of public service. You invest in America, and America invests in you –

Quote:
To marshal their talents in building a new energy economy, I will launch an initiative to give our veterans the training they need to succeed in the Green Jobs of the future. It’s time to end our energy dependence at home so our national security isn’t held hostage to oil and gas from abroad.
Quote:
And we will not leave out the nearly 2 million young Americans who are out of school and out of work. We’ll enlist them in our Energy Corps,
