constituent thoughts: Syria, Putin, US

microphone2 I have a lot of constituents that send me e-mails with their thoughts on a variety of subjects. Here’s some interesting thoughts:

When Putin makes more sense than our own government does, you know we’re in trouble. And while the youth of today may not remember the USSR of old, nor grown up in that world, those of us in our 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond did recall the threat of the corrupt and control-crazy Russian Government pillage of the Russian people.

Syria is not witnessing a battle for democracy, but an armed conflict between government and opposition in a multireligious country. There are few champions of democracy in Syria. But there are more than enough Qaeda fighters and extremists of all stripes battling the government. The United States State Department has designated Al Nusra Front and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, fighting with the opposition, as terrorist organizations. This internal conflict, fueled by foreign weapons supplied to the opposition, is one of the bloodiest in the world.

Yeah, and who’s been supplying those weapons? Might the CIA be involved in that? I suspect the answer is “Yes”, and that part of the reason that Benghazi is still being covered up a year after the disaster there has to do with exactly what we were providing to whom and what got loose.
No one doubts that poison gas was used in Syria. But there is every reason to believe it was used not by the Syrian Army, but by opposition forces, to provoke intervention by their powerful foreign patrons, who would be siding with the fundamentalists. Exactly my point.

That one guy is bad doesn’t mean the other guy is good. Sometimes all the people involved are jackasses — and when your enemies are busy doing each other harm the best course of action is to stand back and let them have at it without assistance or interference.

But the true outrage is not just found here, in the words of President Putin. It is found in the violence done every single day to Americans right here, at home, by our own governments. The outrageous brutality is a daily feature these days — and yet nobody goes to jail for it.

Nor is the brutality limited to physical force. Jefferson County Alabama residents were brutalized by an outrageously-overzealous government that crammed down their throats an admitted badly-needed sewer upgrade. Then the banksters, protected by that very same government, stepped in and in concert with some crooked municipal officials financially shanked the residents out of billions of dollars. When caught, some of the crooked municipal officials went to prison but the financial gang-rape of citizens continues to this day with sewer bills that will never return to their former levels. The banksters involved were not prosecuted nor did anyone from that side of the desk face any sort of punishment. Remember Eric Holder said that he “….found no wrong doing or crimes to prosecute….”

Our state and local governments have willingly participated in the financial beatdown of the citizens through the destruction of real estate land title systems — a protection that pre-dates the Republic. These were brutalized by those very same banksters who have been written about since THEIR OWN TESTIMONY IN 2007.
Has anyone gone to jail? Nope. Yet the financial theft is not only directed at your house it’s also directed at your pension fund and personal, daily life in that 80% of your purchasing power has been destroyed through fraudulent credit emission since 1980! The FED calls it Quantitative Easing – but it is COUNTERFEITING by any name. Wake up America. While you still can.
