The violent police assaults across the US are no coincidence. Occupy has touched the third rail of our political class’s venality
US citizens of all political persuasions are still reeling from images of unparallelled police brutality in a coordinated crackdown against peaceful OWS protesters in cities across the nation this past week. An elderly woman was pepper-sprayed in the face; the scene of unresisting, supine students at UC Davis being pepper-sprayed by phalanxes of riot police went viral online; images proliferated of young women
Gordon Brown gives a press conference where he tells the world that all of a sudden after public outcry, he’s all in favour of IRA victims to getting compensation from Libya, and he all of a sudden did not do a dirty deal to get his hands on cheap Libyan oil. Except what he says in this clip is the giveaway.
He tells everyone that the government will not be negotiating a deal for the victims, the victims should meet up with the Libyan government and sort out compensation by themselves. Unlike how the American government got compensation from Libya, the US government sorted out on behalf of their citizens.
A Malaysian tribunal has found former US President George W Bush and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair guilty of committing crimes against humanity during the Iraq war, Press TV reported.
The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal found the former heads of state guilty after a four-day hearing. A seven-member panel chaired by former Malaysian Federal Court judge Abdul Kadir Sulaiman presided over the trial.
The five panel tribunal unanimously decided that the former US and British leaders had committed crimes against peace and humanity, and also violated international law when they ordered the invasion of Iraq in March 2003.
The prosecutors at the hearing ruled that the invasion of Iraq was a flagrant abuse of law, and act of aggression which amounted to a mass murder of the Iraqi people.
This vid contains one of the most awesome, inspiring and truthful speeches ever given by a president. This very speech must have caused a lot of panic among the higher echelons of the elite. John F. Kennedy had been in office for only 3 months and he was already taking unprecedented steps to empower ordinary people. Kennedy did more for civil rights than any other president since Abraham Lincoln. Kennedy was a big supporter of the constitution, he was against the tyranny of big government. He wanted to withdraw US troops from Vietnam. He wanted to abolish the CIA and Federal Reserve, and he warned us of criminal elements within the establishment who wanted to cease an opportunity to restrict peoples freedoms. He urged the press to be more open and to fulfill its obligation to inform the American people about pertinent facts. And on top of that he spoke openly and candidly about the dangers of secret societies and their influence over the way government works. So is it any wonder that he was dramatically silenced only two years after making this epic speech?
The Occupy Wall Street movement has been under fire in the past week. Police in riot gear have raided camps from coast to coast. And again videos and photos have surfaced of the police brutality that has been taking place towards the non-violent protester. Some reports say the Department of Homeland Security is spying on the occupiers and have been sending the homeless and criminals to demonize the movement. Alex Jones, radio host of The Alex Jones Show, helps us understand who is really behind the crackdowns.
