“There s no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people.”—Howard Zinn
The horrific December 14, 2012, massacre of innocent victims in Newtown, Connecticut, now joins a litany of horrible massacres—including the Columbine massacre (Colorado) on April 20, 1999, the Virginia Tech massacre (Virginia) on April 16, 2007, the Geneva County massacre (Alabama) on March 10, 2009, the Fort Hood massacre (Texas) on November 5, 2009, and the Aurora massacre (Colorado) on July 20, 2012. In other words, in the past twelve years there have been at least six very publicized massacres in this nation, four of which have occurred since the year 2009 alone.
Why is massive violence increasingly so prevalent within this nation, and does it have a connection to the sustained and enormous violence carried out by the U.S. government against ordinary people and sovereign countries in other parts of the world?
There is indeed a connection—a very real and dangerous connection.

Since taking office, Obama authorized numerous police state measures. They follow earlier ones under George Bush. They're heading America for full-blown tyranny. It's already a hair's breadth away. It could arrive any time full force. It's been wrapped in the American flag all along. Most people don't know how seriously their rights are compromised. Thousands of political prisoners in America's gulag hell testify about police state harshness. Much worse ahead looms.
On March 7, 2011, Obama's Executive Order 13567 authorized indefinite detentions and military commission trials. Doing so violated America's Fifth Amendment. It states:
"No person….shall be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law…."
The popular notion that anti-Semitism caused the Zionist movement makes the mistake of post hoc ergo propter hoc - "after the fact, therefore because of the fact."
Sixty-six years ago, on November 29, 1947, the United Nations General Assembly adopted resolution 181, which partitioned the land of Palestine into two States: the “birth certificate” for Israel, and the “death certificate” for Palestine.
Native Americans held a special knowledge of the land and its inhabitants, and believed they were only a small part of the whole circle of life, and that each part of creation played a significant role in the contentment and survival of the other.
The assassination of the President of the United States on national television by the “lone” assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald—who according to authorities used an obsolete bolt-action WWI rifle that was not capable of firing bullets fast enough to wound John F. Kennedy—who is then assassinated the next day by another “lone” assassin, is so stupid that whoever is behind the assassination didn’t expect you to believe it.
Would the planet be at serious risk, according to a massive United Nations Environmental Report, due to “the dangers of climate change, water scarcity, dwindling fish stocks and the pressures on the land and the extinction of species,” had John F. Kennedy not been assassinated on Friday, November 22, 1963.
