The American Way of Life: Kill Lists and Torture


From Sott.net, an article by Joe Quinn, seems to cover the situation accurately. “Go figure” INDEED!

Soon-to-be CIA director, John Brennan, and one of the CIA drones he wants to introduce you to.

How many Americans are aware that their government has claimed the authority to arbitrarily kill their fellow citizens when it chooses, and that it can do so ‘legally’, without any evidence that the citizen in question posed any threat to anyone, let alone the US government or its ‘interests’?

How many Americans are aware that the US government has responded to court cases brought by the ACLU questioning the US government’s authority to engage in targeted assassinations of US citizens by saying that this is a political question and that US courts and judges have no say in the matter (“There exists no appropriate judicial forum to evaluate these constitutional considerations“)? I’d wager not many. But that’s precisely what the US government has done, according to a leaked unsigned and undated Justice Department white paper, obtained by NBC News. You can read the white paper here. The actual legal justification as defined by Justice Department lawyers in 2010 is being kept secret by the government, but the ‘white paper’ explains that, not only has the government decided that targeted assassinations without due process are legal, but that no evidence of any imminent threat from a target is necessary for the target to be deemed an imminent threat. (Go figure).

    Sounds like Adolf talking ….. “this is a political question and that US courts and judges have no say in the matter”.

    • A dictatorship! And an evil one! Doesn’t need to be one person, in this case it is a group.
      Disregarding the Constitution, flaunting moral values, playing God, abandoning respect and care for the people. All very sick and very wrong.
      Problem is – where is the opposition? .Russia and China do not seem to be part of this world domination and population control agenda. But if they are saying much, it doesn’t show, They certainly are well aware of what is going on, that is clear, but no overt opposition, verbal or otherwise. Not to say that they don’t have something in mind..

        We, the ordinary people. Are the opposition. They can take our government, our wealth. We have, is what is right; on our side. It does not feed or clothe us. But, it does sustain spirit.

        Sick, wrong and demonic; my friend. Just stay true, to your own “self”. Once we start playing like them, we lose.

        No, Russia and China are a part of the prison planet. Always have been. Controlled by Rothschilds. With their central banks.

        The ‘golden age” is closer than we know. Evil knows, which is why the “endgame” is being played so desperately. Their lies and evil deceptions are beginning to crumble like so many castles in the sand. As ordinary people start to understand. Say “NO” and stay the course. Thanks for your blogs and kind replies, Jamie.
