Media Blackout As Obama Appoints First Ever Assassination Czar
AlexanderHiggins.com ^ | 5.23.12 | Alexander Higgins

Posted on 05/23/2012 5:27:26 PM PDT by Whenifhow

Corporate news blackout as Obama designates John Brennan as the sole person in charge of designating people to be assassinated.

John Brennan, Obama’s chief counterterrorism advisor was a name that you did not see on the Mainstream media today as the continue to run stories that serve to distract the masses from stories that matter.

Most recently he publicly spoke about the drone program calling it moral and ethical and just.

According to reports from the Associated Press, John Brennan has now seized the lead in choosing who will be targeted for drone attacks and raids and Obama has delegated him the sole authority to designate people for assassination under the United States top-secret assassination program.

Yes, if it such a secret program then why is the associated press running a story on it? Because it is only a “top-secret” matter of National Insecurity when the public and organizations such as the ACLU request more details on it than the propagandized reports the public is fed through the corporate media.

While this story deserves to have been put before the eyeballs of every U.S. citizens, it was merely a side note ran by the Associate Press that didn’t make corporate news headlines anywhere.

According to the AP, under the new plan, Brennan’s staff compiles the potential target list and runs the names past agencies such as the State Department at a weekly White House meeting.

At the same time ACLU lawsuits and requests for information about the decision-making process behind the government’s assassination program repeatedly get denied with the government claiming the programs are so top secret that they can neither confirm nor deny the programs even exist.

So this is what we end up with? A Czar?

We need reps from other branches of the government involved. Then some degree of disclosure of the decision process.

This can be done without compromising our ability to be effective.

And only a few years ago we were so upset about pouring water on someone’s face; because Dick Cheney may be involved.

Laughable now.

Sounds like GOD. He decides who lives and who dies. Maybe in 40 years there’ll be a World Court and he’ll be hanged.

Hey John!

What up, Dude? If you guys need like a practice run for your Death Star gig, could I, ya know, volunteer? I've been married for almost 30 years and waiting to die for the last 25. Fine, it's the last 28 but I didn't want to sound pathetic. If you could give me a heads up maybe 10 minutes before, that'd be great as I'd really like to start smoking again before I start smoking... See what I did there? Heh, heh.

Just remember, wars, death Tzar's that violate rules established as far back as Ford, these sort of actions which the Democrats entirely opposed when in opposition to the Bush administration are OK according to Newsweek, Time, CNN, MSNBC if it's a Democrat in the White House. lol

It’s also pretty laughable that, back in the 70’s, we reined in all the intelligence agencies for doing stuff like this. They operated at the discretion of the President, but they still, even before the oversight committees, had less independance than these “czars”.

Here’s a scary scenario. A talk show host who is hated by the administration walks from his house to his car and is hit by a bullet. The official investigation finds it was a stray bullet and was not intended for the victim. When in reality it came from a drone.

Another gutsy call by the pretender backed up of course by a CYO memo blaming the “Ax” and Val if it backfires.

My ex-wife who rents the spare bedroom went to stay with our daughter because she expects Obama thugs to show up and kill me due to my postings on many forums.

Obama is a Marxist communist who has attained that prize most coveted for over one hundred years by the worlds communists, The office of president of the United States. Of course Nancy Pelosi then lied to every SOS about his eligibility. Harry Reid then had to reassure the racist element within the party that although Obama was black, he was clean and articulate and did not sound like a negro so it was ok to vote for him. Obama has voiced his displeasure with our form of government and said china being a dictatorship is easier to govern than the United States. He has voiced contempt at our poorly written and unusable constitution. He was unhappy that we where paying less than two dollars a gallon for gas. He is feeling better now that he has pushed that past four dollars a gallon. He really... really... really hates that we, this nation, is so productive and as a result wealthy and is working his hardest to make us unproductive and as poor as any other third world country. Isn’t that so so special?

Now that’s funny.

But on the serious side, I was at a Republican meeting last night and someone mentioned this very thing happening to all of us.

Wow, take a look at this.

Given the NDAA’s suspension of Habeus Corpus, “in the name of public safety” (the only legitimate way according to the Constitution), we now have the situation where a citizen can be detained indefinitely w/o charges, and where drones can be used to gather evidence against citizens in secret, BOTH perfectly legal*.

Since the NDAA passed without much guff, that is only minor ‘alarmist’ ramblings, the government must believe that people don’t care about the sixth amendment... and, given the widespread acceptance of the 2005 Kelo decision being a-ok**, we must not care about the fifth either. Since we don’t care about the fifth, we must not care if the Government is or is not prohibited from taking lives without the involvement of the Grand Jury.

All that combined with the media controlled by the government and I doubt we’d ever hear about either the drones assassinating or people being snapped up.
Interesting times.

* — If you ignore the sixth amendment; though they might say “technically they aren’t charged with a crime, therefore there is no criminal prosecution.”
** — Kelo’s decision was utterly laughable, the USSC said [basically] that the Government could seize any property as long as they could ‘project’ [read imagine] that it could bring public benefit... and that wholly separate from any actual benefit, given that the Kelo land has NEVER been developed.

So when will we start seeing the use of RPGs and other types of missiles being used in our homeland to thwart the drones?
