“In the report, a product of a 5-year investigation, Senate investigators reveal sordid details of the systemic and individual failures by the agency personnel who ran the “enhanced interrogation program” — the government’s euphemism for systematic torture — during the George W. Bush administration. The program involved capturing terrorism suspects and shipping them to secret overseas prisons, where they were subjected to techniques such as waterboarding.”

“The CIA’s program has long been criticized as un-American and a chilling departure from the nation’s values. Opponents allege that it resulted in gross abuses and inhumane treatment of detainees, some of whom were eventually revealed not to have been involved in terror organizations.”

Check it out— According to an article published by the Guardian:

“CIA admits to spying on Senate staffers!”

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jul/31/cia-admits-spying-senate-staffers

  • CIA director apologises for improper conduct of agency staff
  • One senator calls on John Brennan to resign in wake of scandal

“I have no choice but to call for the resignation of CIA director John Brennan,” Mark Udall said after a briefing on the inspector general’s findings.

“The CIA unconstitutionally spied on Congress by hacking into Senate intelligence committee computers. This grave misconduct is not only illegal, but it violates the US constitution’s requirement of separation of powers. These offenses, along with other errors in judgment by some at the CIA, demonstrate a tremendous failure of leadership, and there must be consequences.”

 Below is a transcript from my book Surprise:

WAKE Up - When Ignorance is Ignored, Stupidity is justified!

WAKE Up – When Ignorance is Ignored, Stupidity is justified!

What about the CIA – operating in the shadows with impunity? Is our government getting ready to exercises rigid and repressive controls over our social, economic, and political lives in the name of National Security? In 1933 Germany amended it constitution with the ‘Enabling Act;’ which played a critical role in the rise of Adolf Hitler to become the dictator and Fuhrer of Nazi Germany by August, 1934.

Are we enabling our own Demise of America as we knew it? Is there an American Gestapo? How about a THOUGHT Police?

According to an article published on March 6, 2014 by the Wall Street Daily, the U.S. Government is not only spying on We the People, it is also spying on itself. “More specifically, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has been monitoring the computers used by Congress’ Senate Intelligence Committee. (Not coincidentally, that’s the same Senate group responsible for overseeing the CIA’s actions.)”

Imagine that! Does the CIA have something to hide? Damage Control?

Alas, “If it turns out that the CIA was spying on the Senate committee that oversees the agency, it would be an outrageous violation of separation of powers. The CIA is prohibited from spying in the United States itself, and there can be few greater violations of that rule than spying on congressional staff carrying out the constitutional duty of being a check on the CIA’s powers. CIA surveillance of Congress would be another sign that the intelligence community has come to believe that they’re above the law and should get only deference from the other branches of government, not the meaningful oversight that’s required by the Constitution.” – Christopher Anders (Senior legislative counsel with the American Civil Liberties Union.)

Do we have an Enabling Act of our own here at home in the USA? Believe it or not, we have something just as scary. On December 31, 2011, President Barack Obama signed into law the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA); “for the defense of the United States and its interests abroad.” Amongst the many Powers that it has been granted to deal with and address conflict in the Name of National Security, is a controversial provisions entitled “Counter-Terrorism”.

Counter-terrorism authorizes the indefinite military detention of persons the government SUSPECTS of involvement in terrorism, including U.S. citizens arrested on American soil. Although the White House and Senate sponsors maintain that the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) already grants presidential authority for indefinite detention, the Act states that Congress “affirms” this authority and makes specific provisions as to the exercise of that authority.What about the two Boston Bombing Suspects? People’s houses we searched without their permission?

How dare we question authority in the Name of National Security as Congress “affirms” this Unconstitutional, indefinite military detention of US citizens based on Suspicion? Whistle blowers, rebel rousers — Beware! The SHADOW KNOWS! Gitmo? It reminds me of the East German Ministry for State Security (MfS), commonly known as the Stasi.Stasi has been described as one of the most effective and repressive intelligence and secret police agencies in the world. The Stasi motto was “Schild und Schwert der Partei” (Shield and Sword of the Party). Incidentally, the detention provisions of the Act have received critical attention by both the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and the Bill of Rights Defense Committee.

What about the ‘War Powers Act’? In March of 2012 at a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey brazenly admitted that their authority comes not from the U.S. Constitution, but that the United States is subservient to and takes its marching orders from the United Nations Security Council and NATO, when it comes to taking military action.

They don’t give a damn about the War Powers Act? They can invade whomever they chose without consulting or getting permission from Congress just like they did when President Obama ordered the USA to invade Libya; which was against the US Rule of Law. I guess the world is now ruled under International Law in the Name of the New World Order? What happened to the ‘Supreme Law of the Land’? Destination — the Rule of Unconstitutional Law?

Is the USA turning into a Police State? Are there spies amongst us? Are we being set up, labeled, organized into categories and casted with Suspicion? Unfortunately, the agenda is on a need to know basis. Far too people are now considered Guilty; Until Proven Innocent?  Ironically, the situation is getting worse and worse little by little especially since the Supreme Court decided in June, 2013 that Police can takeyour DNA upon arrest?

Justice Antonin Scalia was appalled as he argued that the case paves the way for increased DNA testing, which he claimed violates the Constitution’s protection against unreasonable searches.

“Make no mistake about it: because of today’s decision, your DNA can be taken and entered into a national database if you are ever arrested, rightly or wrongly, and for whatever reason,” Scalia wrote. “This will solve some extra crimes, to be sure. But so would taking your DNA whenever you fly on an airplane.”

Incidentally, the Federal Government has funded checkpoint surveys— to stop US citizens and draw their blood for cash in cities all across America. Some citizens are even secretly tested if they refuse to cooperate, by a breath analyzer— which operates while they are talking to the police. The results go to some federal contractors, who are working to complete a 3 year, $7.9M USD survey on behalf of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). They are allegedly collecting medical data to be used in combatting drunk driving. According to one lawyer, the search constituted an unconstitutional search and seizure.

A Spy Among Friends: Kim Philby and the Great Betrayal…WoW

By BEN MACINTYRE. Check it out on AMAZON!

” Kim Philby was the greatest spy in history, a brilliant and charming man who rose to head Britain’s counterintelligence against the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War—while he was secretly working for the enemy. And nobody thought he knew Philby like Nicholas Elliott, Philby’s best friend and fellow officer in MI6. The two men had gone to the same schools, belonged to the same exclusive clubs, grown close through the crucible of wartime intelligence work and long nights of drink and revelry. It was madness for one to think the other might be a communist spy, bent on subverting Western values and the power of the free world.

But Philby was secretly betraying his friend. Every word Elliott breathed to Philby was transmitted back to Moscow—and not just Elliott’s words, for in America, Philby had made another powerful friend: James Jesus Angleton, the crafty, paranoid head of CIA counterintelligence. Angleton’s and Elliott’s unwitting disclosures helped Philby sink almost every important Anglo-American spy operation for twenty years, leading countless operatives to their doom. Even as the web of suspicion closed around him, and Philby was driven to greater lies to protect his cover, his two friends never abandoned him—until it was too late. The stunning truth of his betrayal would have devastating consequences on the two men who thought they knew him best, and on the intelligence services he left crippled in his wake.”

REVIEWS

“Working with colorful characters and an anything-can-happen attitude, Macintyre builds up a picture of an intelligence community chock-full of intrigue and betrayal, in which Philby was the undisputed king of lies…Entertaining and lively, Macintyre’s account makes the best fictional thrillers seem tame.” –Publishers Weekly [starred]

“Gripping and as well-crafted as an episode of Smiley’s People, full of cynical inevitability, secrets, lashings of whiskey and corpses.” –Kirkus Reviews [starred]

“Ben Macintyre has a knack for finding the most fascinating storylines in history. He has done it again, with this spellbinding tale of espionage, friendship, and betrayal. Written with an historian’s fidelity to fact and a novelist’s eye for character, A Spy Among Friends is one terrific book.” —David Grann, New York Times bestselling author of The Lost City of Z

Dr. Mary’s Monkey…

 

by Edward T Haslam is a must read— “story of the century.” 

Book Description
Publication Date: July 21, 2014

The 1964 murder of a nationally known cancer researcher sets the stage for this gripping exposé of medical professionals enmeshed in covert government operations over the course of three decades. Following a trail of police records, FBI files, cancer statistics, and medical journals, this revealing book presents evidence of a web of medical secret-keeping that began with the handling of evidence in the JFK assassination and continued apace, sweeping doctors into cover-ups of cancer outbreaks, contaminated polio vaccine, the arrival of the AIDS virus, and biological weapon research using infected monkeys. This new edition includes a foreword from author Jim Marr.

Book Review of Dr. Mary’s Monkey by Edward T Haslam:

“This is the best kept secret of the last 60 years with more subplots and surprise situations (with no endings in sight). Haslam is a very modest and humble man calling for what should be an obvious formal investigation into many issues still unresolved. He claims he’s NOT the investigation, but his exposure is enough that if one reads the work entirely with an open mind, they will understand why 60 Minute TV Magazine Producers call this the “story of the century.” Haslam introduces us to an unsolved murder of one of the leading cancer researchers of the last 75 years, Mary Sherman. Her autopsy was sealed for around 30 years, and Haslams explanation of how she died makes far more sence than the official police report written under questionable police procedure. Most importantly, Haslam introduces us to the dark side of the Polio Vaccine and the complications it went through during it’s development and the lasting problems we are now struggling with because of it — the SV-40 VIRUS. It’s all over your interest, but ask your doctor or a med school faculty doctor about the SV-40 Virus, and you’ll learn, they know nothing about it. Their education and training has been so carefully compartmentalized and they know nothing of these issues, but they are all over the internet if you choose to look. Haslam teaches us about many doctors who lost their careers trying to blow the whistle on these issues.

In short the polio vaccine made from monkey kidneys carried the SV-40 virus which remains dormant inside baby boomers who received the polio vaccine until the immune system is weakened to the point where the SV-40 Virus can transform into one of the major cancer’s: lung, breast, soft tissue, bone cancer, etc. In the early 50’s 22,000 new cases of polio was called an epidemic, and Ed Haslam now ask, how come around a million new cases of cancer each year is NOT being called a cancer epidemic? I think it’s a fair question.
Hopefully, you will read Haslam’s work and get your family, friends and associates to read it. Main stream media had a chance to share this with us in 2000 when 60 Minutes had spent more time and money on this story than any other segment of the TV Magazine’s history according to their producer, but the network producers would not permit the program to air. Hmmm? Don’t you want to know why? Read DR MARY’s MONKEY, and you’ll begain to have your eyes openened. Edward T. Haslam and Judyth Vary Baker are modern American heros, and only until you have read their works will you even begin to understand why I hold them in such high esteem. Only until you read their works can you begain to understand the price they have paid, the risk they bear; so you and I can learn the truth and demand something be done about it for us, our children, and our children’s children to the nth generation.”



Ed Snowden – HERO

Wake-Up-Greeting-cards US_Flag Logo Spotlight

“The most pathetic person in the world is someone who has sight, but has no vision.”  Helen Keller 

“But you must remember, my fellow-citizens, that eternal vigilance by the people is the price of liberty, and that you must pay the price if you wish to secure the blessing. It behooves you, therefore, to be watchful in your States as well as the Federal Government.” — Andrew Jackson, Farewell Address, March 4, 1837

Edward Snowden has both insight and vision and a Set of BALLS! He is an American HERO, Champion of our Civil Liberties and HOPE for America. Mr. Snowden is the former CIA employee who was privy to Secret No-No’s and blew the whistle on the NSA and leaked its Secret Surveillance without probable cause on its citizens. He told the TRUTH – and exposed government wrongdoing! He proclaimed:

“I understand that I will be made to suffer for my actions, but I will be satisfied if the federation of secret law, unequal pardon and irresistible executive powers that rule the world that I love are revealed even for an instant… My sole motive is to inform the public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them.” 

Mr. Snowden walked away from a near$200,000 salary and “paradise” job in Hawaii to “do the right thing.”  “I don’t see myself as a hero, because what I’m doing is self-interested. I don’t want to live in a world where there’s no privacy, and therefore no room for intellectual exploration and creativity.  I’m willing to sacrifice [my income and career success] because I can’t in good conscience allow the U.S. government to destroy privacy, Internet freedom and basic liberties for people around the world with this massive surveillance machine they’re secretly building.”

Unfortunately, Mr. Snowden is in hiding and the US government is looking for him; ready to charge him with Espionage and theft of government property (secret classified data of its own citizens). In the Name of National Security, Ed Snowden is being charged with a crime for reporting a crime (NSA’s violation of the constitutional rights of all Americans) and to make an example out of him for the sole purpose of silencing dissent! Unfortunately, when a whistle-blower exposes government waste, fraud corruption and criminal conduct; they are then deemed as “enemies” and targeted for prosecution because the US Government fears the “Truth” coming out and going public.

According to Daniel Ellsberg, the man who leaked the Pentagon Papers in 1971, Edward Snowden is Saving Us from the United Stasi of America”He also states that:In my estimation, there has not been in American history a more important leak than Edward Snowden’s release of NSA material – and that definitely includes the Pentagon Papers 40 years ago. Snowden’s whistleblowing gives us the possibility to roll back a key part of what has amounted to an “executive coup” against the US constitution.”

On his website at: http://www.ellsberg.net/, Mr. Ellsberg stated that:

“Since 9/11, there has been, at first secretly but increasingly openly, a revocation of the bill of rights for which this country fought over 200 years ago. In particular, the fourth and fifth amendments of the US constitution, which safeguard citizens from unwarranted intrusion by the government into their private lives, have been virtually suspended.”

And,  in an interview on August 21, 2013, Ellsberg told the Huffington Post Live that the United States is on the verge of becoming a police state as evidenced by the National Security Agency’s data collection programs and the treatment of secret document leakers Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning.

“When people understand that their every conversation of every kind on phones, email, chat logs whatever, is being recorded and can be retrieved, that will certainly curtail people’s freedom of speech over any digital means,” Ellsberg continued in an interview carried on Huffington Post Live.

“It gives the government blackmail capability over the population at large . . . With the digital stuff alone, we have a surveillance capability that outmatches any police state in the history of humanity.” 

“We have not only the capability of a police state, but certain beginnings of it right now,” he continued. He also stated that: “I absolutely agree with Edward Snowden. It’s worth a person’s life, prospect of assassination, or life in prison or life in exile — it’s worth that to try to restore our liberties and make this a democratic country.”
