Rayn: As I lament the great and senseless loss of life that took place on this day in history, I also do my best to celebrate our “Ground Zero” responders, as well. And, since so many are STILL sick and dying as a direct result of their valiant and noble efforts in the weeks and months following 9/11/01, the battles they have been fighting since then should not be ignored! Their betrayal by our federal government is nothing less than criminal, and continues to go largely unnoticed!
Rayn: These ultra-wealthy, immoral, vampire-mummies are BLATANTLY trying to fast-track THEIR WAR, before the American people catch on to their latest lies!
Betsy H.: All the protesting more than likely will never persuade the men and women to listen to the people here until the day comes when peace is more profitable than their war plans. Achieving that goal is still the dream of many here, including me, finding peaceful ways to get their attention while they play us for their votes is the challenge.
Beatris S.: INSANE.
Mehdrad S.: Thanks so much Rayn for your support.
Mehdrad S.: Many thanks Betsy for your very correct diagnosis of this fatal illness. When a democracy is turned into a corporatocracy, with the Military-Industrial-Congressional Complex at its core (assisted by a “consent- manufacturing” media), decisions -even by the peoples’ representatives!- to instigate wars of aggression should come as no surprise. As you rightly mentioned, such a war is more profitable to THEM than peace. They represent the said Complex rather than the people.
An amendment that would legalize the use of propaganda on American audiences is being inserted into the latest defense authorization bill, BuzzFeed has learned.
The amendment would “strike the current ban on domestic dissemination” of propaganda material produced by the State Department and the independent Broadcasting Board of Governors, according to the summary of the law at the House Rules Committee’s official website.
The tweak to the bill would essentially neutralize two previous acts—the Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 and Foreign Relations Authorization Act in 1987—that had been passed to protect U.S. audiences from our own government’s misinformation campaigns.
