NSA Spied On Martin Luther King Jr, Muhammad Ali And Other Prominent Americans When Vietnam War Protests Peaked

on September 26 2013 8:11 AM
The National Security Agency, or NSA, pried on civil rights icon Martin Luther King, Jr., former boxing champion Muhammad Ali and several other prominent Americans in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when protests against the Vietnam War peaked, according to declassified documents published on Wednesday by George Washington University.
The NSA also targeted prominent public figures including New York Times journalist Tom Wicker, veteran Washington Post humor columnist Art Buchwald and two prominent members of Congress, Sen. Frank Church (D-Idaho) and Sen. Howard Baker (R-Tenn.), as well as civil rights leader Whitney Young.
The highly sensitive documents, which were released in response to an appeal to a government panel by the university’s National Security Archive, showed that some NSA officials, at the time, saw the operation targeting prominent personalities as “disreputable if not outright illegal.”

Iran threatens widespread retaliation against U.S. and allies

Iran is ramping up its threats to the United States even as the American effort against Iranian client state Syria has ground to a crawl.
President Obama made his case to the American people and the world community Tuesday night that Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad must not be allowed to escape the consequences of using chemical weapons on civilians as the two-year-long Syrian civil war drags on.
Iran, a staunch ally of the Assad regime, is warning that any military action against Syria will cause a military and terrorist reaction on U.S. targets and allies.

Founding Fathers must be Spinning in their graves: NSA Spied On Brazil, Mexico Leaders, Glenn Greenwald Says

RIO DE JANEIRO -- The National Security Agency's spy program targeted the communications of the Brazilian and Mexican presidents, and in the case of Mexico's leader accessed the content of emails before he was elected, the U.S. journalist who obtained secret documents from NSA leaker Edward Snowden said Sunday.
Journalist Glenn Greenwald, who lives in Rio de Janeiro, told Globo's news program "Fantastico" that a document dated June 2012 shows that Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto's emails were being read. The document's date is a month before Pena Nieto was elected.

Rigell Leads Bipartisan Effort Urging President Obama to Get Congressional Approval Before Striking Syria

Rigell Leads Bipartisan Effort Urging President Obama to Get Congressional Approval Before Striking Syria
116 Members sign letter outlining president’s constitutional requirements 
Washington – Today Congressman Scott Rigell led a bipartisan effort urging President Obama to convene Congress and receive Congressional authorization prior to using military force in Syria, noting that doing otherwise would be unconstitutional.

“I’m grateful and encouraged by the strong, bipartisan support this letter has received,” said Rigell. “It’s a clear indication that this issue is not personal to the president, but rather represents common ground in Congress and a deep respect for the Constitution.”

In a letter signed by 116 Members of Congress (98 Republicans and 18 Democrats), Members expressed disapproval at the president’s intervention in Libya without prior statutory authorization, and said that Congress stood ready to return to session to consider the facts in Syria. The text of the letter and a list of all cosigners is below.

The President 
The White House
Washington, D.C. 20500 

Dear Mr. President, 

We strongly urge you to consult and receive authorization from Congress before ordering the use of U.S. military force in Syria. Your responsibility to do so is prescribed in the Constitution and the War Powers Resolution of 1973. 

While the Founders wisely gave the Office of the President the authority to act in emergencies, they foresaw the need to ensure public debate – and the active engagement of Congress – prior to committing U.S. military assets. Engaging our military in Syria when no direct threat to the United States exists and without prior congressional authorization would violate the separation of powers that is clearly delineated in the Constitution. 

Mr. President, in the case of military operations in Libya you stated that authorization from Congress was not required because our military was not engaged in “hostilities.” In addition, an April 1, 2011, memorandum to you from your Office of Legal Counsel concluded:

“…President Obama could rely on his constitutional power to safeguard the national interest by directing the anticipated military operations in Libya—which were limited in their nature, scope, and duration—without prior congressional authorization.”

We view the precedent this opinion sets, where “national interest” is enough to engage in hostilities without congressional authorization, as unconstitutional. If the use of 221 Tomahawk cruise missiles, 704 Joint Direct Attack Munitions, and 42 Predator Hellfire missiles expended in Libya does not constitute “hostilities,” what does? 

If you deem that military action in Syria is necessary, Congress can reconvene at your request. We stand ready to come back into session, consider the facts before us, and share the burden of decisions made regarding U.S. involvement in the quickly escalating Syrian conflict.

U.S. military officers have deep doubts about impact, wisdom of a U.S. strike on Syria

Must Read: 2,400 Year Old Wisdom On The NSA, Edward Snowden, And Gun Control

Submitted by Simon Black of Sovereign Man blog,

Nearly 2,400 years ago, Aristotle wrote one of the defining works of political philosophy in a book entitled Politics.
It’s still incredibly relevant today, particularly what he writes about tyranny.
The ancient Greeks used the word ‘turannos’, which referred to an illegitimate ruler who governs without regard for the law or interests of the people, often through violent and coercive means.
Aristotle attacks tyrants mercilessly in his book, and clearly spells out the criteria which make a leader tyrannical. You may recognize a few of them:
  1. Artistotle suggests that a tyrant rises to power by first demonstrating that he is a man of the people:
    “He ought to show himself to his subjects in the light, not of a tyrant, but of a steward and a king.”
    “He should be moderate, not extravagant in his way of life; he should win the notables by companionship, and the multitude by flattery.”
  2. But once in power, a tyrant uses all available means to hold on to power, including spying on his people:
    “A tyrant should also endeavor to know what each of his subjects says or does, and should employ spies . . . and . . . eavesdroppers . . . [T]he fear of informers prevents people from speaking their minds, and if they do, they are more easily found out.”
  3. Furthermore, Aristotle tells us that a tyrant thrives by creating division and conflict– “to sow quarrels among the citizens; friends should be embroiled with friends, the people with the notables [the rich]. . .”
  4. Controlling the economy and stealing the citizens’ wealth is also another mark of a tyrant:
    “Another practice of tyrants is to multiply taxes. . . [and] impoverish his subjects; he thus provides against the maintenance of a guard by the citizen and the people, having to keep hard at work, are prevented from conspiring.”
  5. And as Aristotle points out, a tyrant also attempts to disarm the people such that “his subjects shall be incapable of action” because “they will not attempt to overthrow a tyranny, if they are powerless.”
  6. Naturally, a tyrant “is also fond of making war in order that his subjects may have something to do and be always in want of a leader.”
  7. Aristotle also tells us that tyrants hunt down those who oppose their power:
    “It is characteristic of a tyrant to dislike everyone who has dignity or independence; he wants to be alone in his glory, but anyone who claims a like dignity or asserts his independence encroaches upon his perogative, and is hated by him as an enemy to his power.”
  8. Ultimately, though, Aristotle concludes that “No freeman, if he can escape from [tyranny], will endure such a government.”
    He’s right. And in the past, people had to rise up in the streets to defeat tyranny.
Fortunately, there are many tactics available to freedom-oriented people today that don’t involve violent revolution.
For rational, thinking people who find themselves living in a state that is rapidly sliding into tyranny, one of the most important steps to take is reducing exposure to that government.
If you live, work, bank, invest, own property, run a business, hold your precious metals, store your digital data (email), etc. all in the same place, you are running some serious ‘sovereign risk’.
In many cases, you can move precious metals overseas, set up a foreign bank account, or create an offshore, encrypted email account with a few mouse clicks.
Take a look back at Aristotle’s points. If the majority of them look familiar, it may be time that you look around the world for alternatives.
