It is 2017. There are no more fusion centers. There are no more “top secret” clearances. There are no more wars. And there is no need for them.
There was never any need for them. But a lot of people had mistakenly believed so, until a few years ago, when high-level government whistleblowers disclosed top secret documents through the journalist organization WikiLeaks that revealed how a criminal cabal in charge of the United States government misled the whole world about the September 11 terrorist attacks.

(Rense) – 2010 has thundered past the half way mark and is galloping into history. What will the rest of the year hold?
Most of the “Top Ten Trends for 2010” forecast by Gerald Celente this past winter in the Trends Journal® have either come to pass or are about to manifest. Celente predicted:
The Afghan surge would fail.
The economic recovery would never materialize.
Terrorist threats would increase.
Tea parties would gain strong momentum.
Obama’s popularity would wane and/or plummet.
Anti-Immigration sentiments would intensify.
In 2009, “experts” rejoiced at the sight of the impending recovery’s “green shoots” and predicted the advent of a roaring bull stock market run.
Bull market or BS? Celente called the green shoots a mirage and recovery “a cover up.” Sure enough, the Dow is now trading at 1999 levels. He also wrote “Geopolitical and sociological fallout will threaten the entire European Union” and he forecast the “Crash of 2010.”
Will the “Crash” happen at all? Will it happen on schedule? Events conspiring in that direction are explored in detail in the Summer Trends Journal®, just sent to subscribers. Continue reading →
(AlterNet) – Last month, the Supreme Court exposed Americans to jail sentences of up to 15 years just for giving advice to groups the U.S. government considers untouchable. In Holder v. Humanitarian Law Project, the court ruled that the USA Patriot Act’s expanded definition of “material support” for “foreign terrorist organizations” passes Constitutional muster. The broad wording of the statute not only makes it a crime to support violent activities, but also prohibits Americans from offering “services” or “training, expert advice or assistance” to any entity designated as a terrorist group.
Providing weapons, materials or know-how that might help terrorists commit violent acts has long been a crime, but it was only with the rushed passage of the Patriot Act just weeks following the 9/11 attacks that “expert advice or assistance” was added to the definition of “material support.” Continue reading →
In a case pitting free speech against national security, … on Monday upheld a federal law that makes it a crime to provide “material support” to foreign terrorist organizations, even if the help takes the form of training for peacefully resolving conflicts.
Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., writing for the majority in the 6-to-3 decision, said the law’s prohibition of providing some types of intangible assistance to groups the State Department says engage in terrorism did not violate the First Amendment.
(CNN) – A divided Supreme Court has ruled the government’s power to criminalize “material support” of a terrorist organization is constitutionally permissible.
The 6-3 ruling preserves a key provision of the 2001 Patriot Act, amid claims it threatens the free-speech rights of Americans who would assist non-violent activities of certain militant and terror groups.
At issue was whether the federal law allows prosecution of those with knowledge of “any service, training, expert advice or assistance” to a foreign terrorist organization, as designated by the U.S. government. – Source: CNN

It all began when Bruno was sitting in the audience at a civil hearing for another WACLA member.
