Key findings of the report include:

  • In Pakistan, 24 men were reported as killed or targeted multiple times. Missed strikes on these men killed 874 people, including 142 children.
  • In Yemen, 17 men were reported killed or targeted multiple times. Missile strikes on these men killed 273 others and accounted for almost half of all confirmed civilian casualties and 100% of all recorded child deaths.
  • In targeting Ayman al Zawahiri, the CIA killed 76 children and 29 adults. They failed twice, and Ayman al Zawahiri is reportedly still alive.
  • It took the US six attempts to kill Qari Hussain, a Pakistani target. During these attempts, 128 people were killed, including 13 children.
  • Each assassination target on the US government’s so-called Kill List ‘died’ on average more than three times before their actual death.

The US government’s drone programme has come under increasing scrutiny after a number of strikes that hit large numbers of civilians by mistake. It was recently revealed – as a result of investigations by Reprieve – that the US government compensates civilian victims of drone strikes in Yemen.

Jennifer Gibson, Staff Attorney at Reprieve who compiled the report, said: “These ‘high value targets’ appear to be doing the impossible – dying not once, not twice, but as many as six times. At the same time, hundreds of unknown men, women and children are also caught in the crosshairs. President Obama continues to insist drone strikes are ‘precise’, but when targeting one person instead kills as many as 128 others, there’s only one conclusion that can be drawn – there’s nothing targeted about the US drone programme.”

Obamacare Already Employs Serco, British Company Under Investigation for Fraud

http://21stcenturywire.com/2013/10/05/british-company-under-investigation-for-fraud-hired-to-oversee-obamacare/

British outsourcing giant Serco has managed to construct a corporate state running parallel to the governments in Europe, Australia and the US. Now they are lined up to oversee large compartments of Obamacare in the US.

There’s only one problem: Serco is currently under investigation in the UK for invoicing fraud – billing the UK government for phantom services, including charging for electronic tagging of prisoners who did not exist. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg…

Praying for No More War with Syria, and Putin, and No Nuclear False Flag

Current indications suggest that Congress could reject the Obama administration’s draft resolution on Syria, setting up a potential constitutional crisis if Obama goes ahead and launches the attack anyway, as Secretary of State John Kerry has clearly suggested will happen.

Exclusive: High Level Source Confirms Secret US Nuclear Warhead Transfer

Anthony Gucciardi & Alex Jones
Infowars.com
September 3, 2013

“A high level source inside the military has now confirmed to us that Dyess Air Force base is actively moving nuclear warheads to the East Coast of the United States in a secret transfer that has no paper trail.

 

“According to the high level military source, who has a strong record of continually being proven correct in deep military activity, the Dyess Air Force Commander authorized unknown parties to transfer the nuclear warheads to an unknown location that has been reported to be South Carolina, where the warheads will then be picked up and potentially utilized.This is of particular interest not only due to the fact that the Syrian situation has escalated to the point of a very realistic hot war scenario, but due to the fact that Dyess has repeatedly denied the existence of nuclear warheads inside the base.

The brief report from the top level military source, which was written in a rush to get the information out, reads:

“Dyess is beginning to move out nuclear war heads today. I got a tap from DERMO earlier. He said it was the first time they have been even acknowledged since being put there in the 80′s. No signature was required for transfer… There was no directive. He said that Dyess Commander was on site to give authority to release. No one knew where they were going really, but the truck driver said to take them to South Carolina and another pick up will take them from there.”

The fact that this transfer was not signed for and there were no papers is key. It shows how the military is now secretly operating with the transfer of nuclear weapons, and what’s more, we know that DERMO (a military base in Florida) is a hotbed of special operations. Why is DERMO operating the nuclear warheads out of Dyess Air Force base with no paper trail? This shows that this is a highly secretive, black ops style move here that the military does not want on record.

The fact is that they don’t move all of these assets unless they plan on using them. Nuclear warheads are not simply moved to the East Coast for no reason, and the bottom line is that these missiles are likely being used for something even much greater than Syria.”

When All Else Fails, Go to War, $2,000,000,000,000. Debt to FED

“War, what is it good for? Absolutely nothing!”

No justice nor freedom nor creation of goods to the betterment of mankind will come from this war industry owned by the central bank corporations of the world.

 

Only blood, carnage, destruction, homelessness, poverty, disease, mayhem, pain, and misery will result in yet another United States of America/United Kingdom/NATO war theater being blasted open upon Syria.

 

The United States of American slave debt that the government office holders have agreed to with the Federal Reserve but that mankind does not owe to the Federal Reserve, $2,000,000,000,000. (two thousand billion dollars) was created out of thin air. It is bogus. It is counterfeit.

 

It is a debt that is unconstitutional and illegal and it therefore is an imaginary monster that cannot survive the light of day. Expose it! Fling open the closet door and look under the bed and turn on the light, for heaven sake don’t let it torment these United States of America and the rest of the world another moment!

As long as Private Central Banks are allowed to exist, inevitably as the night follows day there will be poverty, hopelessness, and millions of deaths in endless World Wars, until the Earth itself is sacrificed in flames to Mammon.

The path to true peace on Earth lies in the abolishment of all private central banking everywhere, and a return to the state-issued value-based currencies that allow nations and people to become prosperous.

 

 

Arrest the bankers, I say! Take back the stolen powers to create money back to the Congress. If the present members of Congress don’t want the responsibility, then throw them out of office and elect those who will be fiscally accountable.

 

 

To attempt to comprehend the magnitude of and how enslaving this $2,000,000,000,000. debt is look at the following explanations from

http://ihtd.org/festivalguide/resources/how-much-is-a-trillion-dollars/

 

 

If a person’s salary is $40,000 per year it would take:

25 years to earn $1 Million
25 Thousand years to earn $1 Billion,
25 Million years to earn $1 Trillion

If you lived to be 80 years of age, to have:

$1 Million you would have to save $34 each day of your life,
$1 Billion you would have to save $34,000 each day of your life,
$1 Trillion you would have to save $34 Million each day of your life
If you stack a trillion-worth of $1000 bills together, then:
1 million dollars = 4 inches high
1 billion dollars = 364 feet high
1 trillion dollars = 63 miles high
(give or take a foot or two)
Note that this is a STACK, not laid end-to-end.
If you count backward, then:
1 million seconds = 12 days ago
1 billion seconds = 31 years ago
1 trillion seconds = 30,000 B.C.
(give or take a decade or two)
Slavery is the only payment the bankers really will accept because they know we are in too much debt to them.
But we do not really owe this debt to them at all after all is said and done the bankers have reaped a century and a half of payments through the wars and deaths of millions upon millions of human beings the world over.
The End Game is here and the age of the bankers is over. There is hope! A few like Ron Paul know what we could do to regain our fiscal sanity.

IN TIMES OF WAR: A PRAYER FOR PEACE – CLAIRE K. RIVERO

http://whatreallyhappened.com/node/264445

http://investmentwatchblog.com/moodys-puts-major-u-s-biggest-banks-on-review-for-downgrade/

ATTENTION RIVERO’S RANGERS! This is a call to keyboards.
Everyone needs to go out to their social media, email lists, and the corporate media websites, and post the following two questions.
1. Why would Syria’s Assad invite United Nations chemical weapons inspectors to Syria, then launch a chemical weapons attack against women and children on the very day they arrive, just miles from where they are staying?

2. If Assad were going to use chemical weapons, wouldn’t he use them against the hired mercenary army trying to oust him? What does he gain attacking women and children? Nothing! The gain is all on the side of the US Government desperate to get the war agenda going again.

As I type these words, US trained and equipped forces are already across the border into Syria, and US naval forces are sailing into position to launch a massive cruise missile attack into Syria that will surely kill more Syrians than were claimed to have died in the chemical attack.

Obviously, we cannot stop this madness. The US Government is listening to Wall Street and Israel and cares not what the American people think.

But what We The People can do, must do, is send a message to the world that we do not believe the war-starting lies by the US Government. We know this is a repeat of the same lies we were told about Saddam’s nuclear weapons.

The US Government is lying, and people are dying.

Send a message to the world that the American people do not support this latest aggression, and we will not stay silent while more innocents are murdered.      http://whatreallyhappened.com/node/264622

By ANI | ANI – Wed 30 Jan, 2013

The Obama administration gave green signal to a chemical weapons attack plan in Syria that could be blamed on President Bashar al Assad’s regime and in turn, spur international military action in the devastated country, leaked documents have shown.

A new report, that contains an email exchange between two senior officials at British-based contractor Britam Defence, showed a scheme ‘approved by Washington’.

NSA’s XKeyscore gives one-click real-time access to almost any internet activity

Keep this information front and center, sooner or later the sleeping sheep (those whose brains aren’t completely deadened) will have to wake up to their personal need to know how this affects every person whether they think they have ‘nothing to hide’ or not. Publish, publish, publish these revelations just like water drops upon the rocks break them down into grains of sand eventually.

New revelations about NSA surveillance systems show that it was enough to fill in a short ‘justification’ form before gaining access to any of billions of emails, online chats, or site visit histories through a vast aggregation program called XKeyscore.

The structure of XKeyscore, leaked by the UK’s Guardiannewspaper, is sourced from a classified internal presentation from 2008 and a more recent Unofficial User Guide, presumably obtained by Edward Snowden when he was a contractor for the National Security Agency in the past year.

It shows that XKeyscore – then located on 750 servers around 150 sites worldwide – is a vast collection and storage program that served as the entry point for most information that was collected by the NSA. The Guardian claims that in one 30-day period in 2012 the program acquired 41 billion records.

The information is not just metadata – depersonalized analytical usage…

I spent the summer of 1961 behind the Iron Curtain. I was part of the US-USSR student exchange program. It was the second year of the program that operated under auspices of the US Department of State. Our return to the West via train through East Germany was interrupted by the construction of the Berlin Wall. We were sent back to Poland. The East German rail tracks were occupied with Soviet troop and tank trains as the Red Army concentrated in East Germany to face down any Western interference.

Fortunately, in those days there were no neoconservatives. Washington had not grown the hubris it so well displays in the 21st century. The wall was built and war was avoided. The wall backfired on the Soviets. Both JFK and Ronald Reagan used it to good propaganda effect.

In those days America stood for freedom, and the Soviet Union for oppression…

Snowden, from Whistle-blower to Leaker to Renegade

If the false left/right paradigm has its way the only thing the ‘average citizen’ will get from main stream media from both neoconservative (FOX and those ‘fair and balanced’ organizations) and pseudo liberal outlets (MSNBC ‘lean forward’ organizations) will be the question, “Where is Edward Snowden?”

As time goes forward we have witnessed the steadily changing adjectives used to describe Edward Snowden by these gatekeepers for the NSA run government lackey ‘news’ outlets are extremely revealing;

1st Whistle-blower

2nd Leaker

3rd Renegade
