FBI SPY FLYER

When I stopped laughing long enough to be wipe my eyes and breath, I thought I would add a fourth part to this series of posts.
Remember that flyer from the FBI that was posted on WND that I showed and talked about in my post “FBI’s most wanted list Part II”?

I just wanted to Hi-lite a few things from that flyer, and a few of the many reasons why it is so incredibly stupid.

Obviously whoever wrote it never took a class on Critical Thinking 101 or ever learned about logical errors or even has any logic for that matter.

1. According to the flyer, as you can see, Crocodile Dundee has to be a terrorist worthy of being arrested. He is not only interested in using dynamite for a purpose other than it was intended for, he did use it…
Pay close attention to the end of this video for proof that Crocodile Dundee is a terrorist.

2. According to this section, I must be a terrorist because I’m missing parts of two of my fingers on my right hand. Never mind the fact that they were severed on a gasket cutting machine in an industrial accident when I was only nineteen.
3. According to this section, FEMA has to be infested with terrorists. Look at the official FEMA website… http://www.fema.gov/areyouready/assemble_disaster_supplies_kit.shtm
Look at this snip from their website:

According this this flyer it’s a sin to just be a wise steward of their money, who isn’t stupid enough to use a credit card for everything and spend a tremendous amount on interest rates when you don’t have to.

And sense when is it a criminal act to protect your identity from everyone who asks for it.
I went to a medical clinic and they asked for my social security number and I told them they didn’t need it. Am I a terrorist? Don’t think so Tim!

Ever since its inception, the FBI has been one of the most respected Law enforcement agencies in the world.
I highly respect law enforcement for all that they do for us. They are to be honored for protecting citizens all across the country. However, unfortunately, it seems the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has changed itself drastically into the Federal Bureau of Idiots.
The previous two posts were about the FBI putting out a flyer encouraging owners and workers of hotels, motels, sporting-goods stores and surplus stores to spy and report on their fellow Americans.
Why this flyer should make you laugh, scream with anger, and cry with sadness all at the same time.
1. This is America home of the brave, not Amerikka home of the snitch!
2. Our country was founded by people who thought the very thing that the FBI is calling terrorism was the principle on which this country was founded.
3. Are we going to get arrested for going backpacking or camping now? Think about it, they want stores to report purchases of waterproof matches and meals ready to eat.
4. They want stores to report people who are buying something and don’t know anything about what they are buying. (Am I the only one who thinks this is incredibly stupid?) We’d have to report and arrest everyone over the age of 55 who buys a computer for the first time, or women who buy sports equipment for their husbands. Who would be left?
5. If the founding fathers that wrote, signed and fought for the Declaration of Independence were still alive, the FBI would apparently want them spied on and probably arrested for terrorism.
6. The majority of gun owners and sporting-goods stores and “surplus” stores hate liberals and believe in the patriotic American way of life. What makes the FBI think that they would go out of their way to spy on American citizens like a bunch of communists in cold war Soviet Union?
7. Why should we spy on born and bred US Citizens when the Federal Government has turned a blind eye to people that aren’t even from this country who have known ties to terrorists, if not terrorists themselves?
When did it become a crime in America to be proud of your patriotic roots? When did it become a crime to speak your mind?
The First Amendment of the United States Constitution states:
Amendment 1 – Freedom of Religion, Press, Expression ratified on 12/15/1791. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Does any part of that flyer smell like the stench of Anti American governmental control to anyone else?
Yet sadly, most of America is more concerned about what outfits Lady Gaga (who’s no lady) and Heidi Klum are going to wear, than they are about their rights being slowly swiped out of their grasp by their own government which is supposed to protect those rights.
It’s no wonder Obama rushed to induct Kegan into the Justice Hall of shame aka our Supreme Court. She not only violated a federal law and got away with it (as Dean of Harvard Law she denied the US military recruiters space to recruit on campus), she also was the first dean in the history of Harvard Law to remove Constitutional law from the curriculum and add European style law.

  • Angie’s good deeds continue!

     Angelina Jolie touches down in Altinozu, Turkey, on Friday afternoon, where she’ll meet with nearly 10,000 refugees from war-torn Syria.

    The Associated Press reports that 36-year-old Jolie, Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner, will be greeted at the refugee camp with a 16-yard banner reading “Goodness Angel of the World, Welcome.”

     The refugees have fled Syria due to a violent crackdown on anti-government protesters.

     Jolie, whose last humanitarian visit was to Tunisia (where thousands had fled from Libya) in April, is currently staying with Brad Pitt and their six kids in an $11 million mansion in Malta. Pitt, 47, is filming “World War Z” in the southern European nation.


  • While I feel sorry for the People of Syria that had to flee to Turkey, they obviously have no clue what an angel is!

A greek jackass, who's name potentially could be Chris.


A guy named Chris, who is an American Jackass.


Hey Matthews –
Are you being intentionally stupid, or worse, are you just pushing the Whitehouse’s official bye-line straight from Washington.
You seriously don’t get it that someone, who’s entrusted with working for American citizens, did something that shows stupidity, an extreme lack of morals and ethics, and betrayed the trust of his wife and his marriage vows. Like Clinton, this has nothing to do with what a man has done in the secrets of his bedroom, although he was incredibly wrong in what he did. It has everything to do with, if his own wife can’t trust him to stand up to his wedding vows, how can the citizens that voted him into office trust him? I don’t trust most politicians as far as I can throw a feather, but one who shows beyond a shadow of a doubt that he can’t be trusted by his actions, deserves to be evicted from his job. If I sent inappropriate and lewd pictures from a work computer in an office at a regular employer I would be fired without a moment’s notice. This man is also under investigation for sending these pictures to an underage female. What brilliant subterfuge do you want to spew to distract from that piece of news Chris?
Belows is an article that has to be evidence of one of the stupidest things ever said by an American so called journalist.

Matthews: Weiner in Trouble Because His Behavior Offends ‘Culturally Backward’ Christian Conservatives

By: Geoffrey Dickens
Friday, June 10, 2011 11:42 AM EDT

On Thursday’s Hardball, Chris Matthews determined that Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner could be in danger of being forced out of Congress by Blue Dog Dems who face uphill battles in red states because, as he put it, “people in the rural areas of this country who are Christian conservative culturally – you can say backward if you want…don’t like this kind of stuff.”

During a discussion about Weiner’s chances of survival, after being caught sending lewd pictures to women via Twitter, the MSNBCer claimed the liberal congressman didn’t have to worry about his, according to Matthews, culturally superior constituents in New York – the “56 percent in Brooklyn and Queens” who “can live with this guy.” Instead he had to be concerned with his Democratic colleagues fearful about re-election in the “conservative culturally part of the country.”

The following excerpt was aired on the June 9 edition of Hardball:

CHRIS MATTHEWS: If you’re a Blue Dog Democrat from a conservative culturally part of the country, where you’re fighting out every election with two or three points to spare, if you’re a — if you’re are [Jim] Matheson from Utah or you’re from Oklahoma and you’re a [Dan] Boren — and he’s leaving Congress – your life’s getting difficult enough defending the East Coast and the left coast Democratic Party. They’re too far left. Look at what happened in Arkansas last year. It’s getting very, very hard to defend the behavior, politically, of the party. Now you throw on top of that immoral behavior, indiscrete behavior, embarrassing behavior, gross behavior like this, and you still have him in your midst. And that’s my question to you. If you’re Steny Hoyer, who does speak for the Blue Dogs, if you’re Nancy Pelosi, the former Speaker, who has to deal with them, don’t you have to deal with the fact – you’re losing any chance of getting back a 218 majority?

I want you to pick this up, Ben. This is, to me, the stakes here. If he stays, they never get the leadership back. They never get the Speakership back because the people in the rural areas of this country who are Christian conservative culturally – you can say backward if you want – but they don’t like this kind of stuff at all. They’re not part of that 56 percent in Brooklyn and Queens who say, “okay, we can live with this guy.” Your thoughts, Ben? Isn’t that the cutting edge of this?

Adolph Hitler giving a speech

If you read my recent article First they came… Part I and you are under 40, you are probably asking yourself, “What’s this conservative old goat talking about.” “Why do I care what happened to some stupid German preacher over 50 years ago, in another century?”
You would do very well to ask yourself that.
History to some is a very boring subject, filled with yawns and annoying test questions. But to anyone with the ability to have a cognitive thought swimming around in that soup called grey matter… you know that those who have forgotten the past are doomed to repeat it.
Again, you are probably thinking what does this have to do with me? The answer my friend is not blowing in the wind… Again, the answer is those who are ignorant, and entertainment happy enough to forget history, are destined to repeat it.
Well if you are under the age of 40, especially if you are attending college, I would suggest you delve into a place called a library and do some research.
While technically Nazism was Fascism and there is a slight difference between Fascism in its goals and Socialism, the way they go about achieving their goals are very similar, frighteningly and shockingly similar.
As described so well in an essay article in the archives of Lawrence University, under the heading Lawrence University Students of “Objectivism” on http://www.lawrence.edu/sorg/objectivism/socfasc.htm
A common definition of fascism: “A governmental system with strong centralized power, permitting no opposition or criticism, controlling all affairs of the nation (industrial, commercial, etc.)” (American College Dictionary, New York: Random House, 1957).
Socialist states have included the USSR(1), Communist China, socialist Sweden, socialist England, Cuba, North Korea, and a handful of lesser regimes in Eastern Europe, East Africa, and Southeast Asia. Once again, there is a prima facie difficulty in determining what factor these various states held in common. After all, some socialist regimes (like Sweden’s and England’s) were elected democratically. Others, like the USSR’s and the PRC’s, were the result of popular violent revolutions. Still others were the product of either military coup (Cuba, Ethiopia, Vietnam) or foreign invasion (the Eastern Bloc). The trait common to all of these is provided, once again by the definition of socialism: “a theory or system of social organization which advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means or production, capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole” (American College Dictionary).
Once we remember the possibility of the existence of such a system, the differences between socialism and fascism become trivial, superficial and, above all, non-essential. Differentiation of socialism and fascism from capitalism permits the recognition of their similarity. They do differ from each other, but only in the way in which the scalene and the isosceles differ from each other: in degree, but not in kind. Socialism and fascism are each forms of statism,(sic) forms of government in which the government is given complete or extensive control over the lives of its citizens.
This theoretical consideration has massive consequences in the practical realm: The differences we noted before turn out not to be as important as we once might have thought.
Adolph Hitler himself stated,
I have learned a great deal from Marxism, as I do not hesitate to admit. The difference between them and myself is that I have really put into practice what these peddlers and penpushers have timidly begun…I had only to develop logically what Social Democracy repeatedly failed in because of its attempt to realize its evolution within the framework of democracy. National Socialism is what Marxism might have been if it could have broken its absurd and artificial ties with the democratic order.
(Hitler to Rauschning, The Voice of Destruction, pg. 186).
________________________________________
As discussed in the first article, Adolph Hitler took advantage of a cultural, economic, and religious vacuum in post WW I Germany. He was a master strategist. He was megalomaniacal and believed to be frightfully mad, and an occultist with almost no equal in the early twentieth century, but he was equally ruthless and cunning and an excellent recruiter of like-minded individuals. He was excellent at delegating tasks amongst a protected and private group of party leaders. ________________________________________
He was a brilliant orator. Even sixty plus years later, when one listens to an old film reel of Hitler speak, the hairs stand up on the back of your neck.
Hitler knew enough to speak accordingly to different audiences. He promised tax cuts to farmers, and in rural areas spoke of redistribution of wealth. Despite being severely outnumbered by his critics and opponents, Hitler became the Chancellor in January 1933. The main reason for his victory once again was the horrific economic conditions and spiritual unrest of the nation after the nation’s defeat in WW I. The night that Hitler was named Chancellor was fortuitous for the Nazi party as many of the leading industrialists came forward and called for Hitler because they said he was the only one strong enough as Chancellor to keep the coming Bolshevik revolution from overtaking Germany. ________________________________________
The Nazi Party was originally the German Workers Party (GWP). In the spring of 1920, Hitler suggested that they change their name to the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP). Hitler hated the socialists and communists and Russians in general. However he was politically savvy enough to know that after WW I Socialism was a popular philosophy. But he wanted to maintain the integral part of his belief that Jews and non-Germans were inferior, the NSDAP published its programme which became known as the 25 points. The party refused to accept the terms of the Treaty of Versailles, and to reinforce their ideas on Nationalism, equal rights were only for German citizens.
In an appeal to the working class and socialists, the programme included several measures that would redistribute income and war profits, profit sharing in large industries, nationalization of trusts, increases in old age pensions and free education. ________________________________________
Hitler was such a fantastic orator, that many times the large crowds that followed him and gathered at his speeches would erupt in violence. On one such occasion the crowd erupted in violence and brutally beat a rival politician. Hitler himself was imprisoned for three months for having a part in the riot. When Hitler was released he began forming his own private army called the Sturm Abteilung (Storm Section) These brutes and thugs were also known as Storm Troopers or Brown Shirts. They were soon to be led by one Hermann Goering. ________________________________________
Hitler and his thugs were seen by many to be too aggressive and violent in his speeches to entice violence against the liberal socialists. In the 1928 German National elections, less than 3% voted for the Nazi Party.
In 1929 Hitler and the Nazi party found themselves blessed by fortune, in that the Wall Street Crash of October 1929 caused a United States, desperate for capital, to begin to recall loans from Europe. One of the consequences was rapid unemployment and an economy which relied heavily on investment from the United States collapsed worse than any other European nation. Before the 1929 crash, 1.25 million people were unemployed in Germany. Towards the end of 1930, the numbers reached over 4 million.
Hitler who had been considered a dangerous fool in 1928 when he had predicted an economic disaster was now being seen as brilliant.
There were many times where Hitler was called a Messiah of his time.

 Martin Niemöller had at one point in the early 20th Century been in the military and was a strong supporter of German Nationalism. After WW I there was mass poverty and social unrest. There were many attempts to settle Germany and return to a nation of power and pride. There were many failed attempts at taking over the German government. Enter into the world scene one Adolf Hitler. Hitler had enough military power behind him because he had a charismatic persona. His ideas and ultimate goals were to take advantage of the crises sweeping across the nation of Germany. The crises of spiritual and political unrest after the carnage of a plummeting economy brought on by the ravages of defeat in WW I. The crisis that Hitler was able to take advantage of most effectively was the political vacuum that arose between WW I and WW II.

After leaving the military Niemöller attended seminary and went into service as a Protestant pastor.

As Hitler began to gather strength, he began manipulating the church in Germany. He convinced many church leaders, like Niemöller, that Nationalism and utter commitment to the flag of Germany was of utmost importance and should be a rallying cry of the church in Germany. When Hitler stressed the importance of Christianity to German nationality and Christianity’s role in the renewal of national morality and ethics, Niemöller enthusiastically welcomed the Third Reich.

In early 1934 Niemöller and two Protestant Bishops met with Hitler to discuss what Hitler saw as the role of the German Protestant church (the only true church according to the Nazi party). The two Bishops signed the statement giving unconditional loyalty to the Führer.

By 1934 Niemöller and a few others, had begun to see how Hitler and the growing Nazi party had been taking advantage of Church leaders who were passionate about their country. Many Gestapo agents had infiltrated churches to help lead them in the right direction and to monitor them and encourage others to spy on their own families and friends. By this point, many who had not previously seen the evil behind the mask of German Nationalism were now too afraid to stand up and voice the truth.

Niemöller refused to bow to the coming tide of evil. Between 1934 and 1937 he was arrested by the State Police many times for speaking out against the growing influence of neo-paganism and the growing evil of anti-Semitism (At one point late in life, Niemöller admitted that Hitler’s own anti-Semitic viewpoints were similar to his own if not more extreme). This caused Niemöller and a few others to create the Confessing Church in May 1934. This group declared itself the one true Lutheran Church in Germany, only deriving inspiration from God himself (Not Adolf Hitler).

Niemöller became well known in Berlin. He was warned constantly by police for his critical sermons against the growing neo-paganism of the Nazi movement. He was repeatedly arrested between 1934 and 1937.

In the summer of 1937, Niemöller was arrested by the Gestapo. He was charged with “treasonable utterances”. He was in a Berlin prison for seven and a half months, until his trial where he was put in solitary confinement.

In early 1938, he was convicted under the law “For the Prevention of Treacherous Attacks on State and Party and the Law for the Maintenance of Respect for Party Uniforms”. He was sentenced to pay 2,000 Reichsmarks, and serve seven months detention (which he had more than already served while awaiting trial).

The Gestapo placed him under Protective Detention, and placed him in the Sachsenhausen (Saxxon’s Houses) concentration camp of Kristallnacht fame (or infamy).

Sachsenhausen prisoners from Laborcamp

After a few years in Sachsenhausen, Niemöller wrote a letter to an old acquaintance from his military experience, an Admiral of the German fleet. He asked for liberation so he could return to service. Awhile after, he was removed from one of the worst hellholes filled with psychotic, sadistic, murderous Nazis, and moved to Dachau.

After approximately seven years of imprisonment, for merely standing up for his belief in what is right, and against evil…

Niemöller was sent by German troops to Austria and during the transfer by freight train with other prisoners, he was set free by American Occupation forces.

Despite the hardships, and attrocities perpetrated on him and those around him in the concentration camps, despite his notoriety from the pulpit, he was virtually unknown and unheard of until the 1950’s. In the 1950’s, Niemöller returned to the very concentration camps he was forced to survive in, and it is reported that while facing Dachau from outside the old gates,

Dachau from the outside

that Niemöller began the thought which has become one of the most far reaching quotes in all of free humanity.

 

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Socialist …

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a trade Unionist …

Then they came for Jews, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Jew …

Then they came for me, and there was no one left to speak for me…
