    The United States Empire. By Bruce Fein, TWT

    If the United States is not an empire, the word has lost all meaning. [my emphasis] ¶ No sparrow falls in the forest that does not provoke a national security assessment and response. ¶ At present, we are employing military force in six countries — Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia.
    [ ... ]
    Acknowledging this truth is the first step to curing the disease. Otherwise, self-ruination will be our fate. As Abraham Lincoln presciently lectured: “At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”

    And the US uses undue influence to make dozens of other nations bend to its will.
    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    U.S. v. Minker, 350 US 179, at page 187
    "Because of what appears to be a lawful command on the surface, many citizens, because
    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    I am astounded at the nearly universal support of these wars by the left and right both.
    I don't think I've seen a single news figure save for Stossel that does not say "bombs are not enough, we need troops on the ground".

    It's surreal.

    There's a Democrat at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

    ... and checks and balances in the Constitution. If the opposition wanted him stopped or out, they could oust him or stop him. There is not a spit of difference in the Ruling Party.

    More than surreal, it's downright frightening. IMO, that's because all the good little sheeple are told what to think by the MSM. Their indoctrination is well under way, in fact nearly complete...

    And I agree - I feel Stossel is the single voice of reason in the media today. We need more like him, those who will tell it like it is without injecting the (D or R) party line.
