Muslims Unite: Mass Media fuels the flame of Dis-information

Keep in mind the source of this video above, RT, is Russia Today and in itself is a propaganda machine as well. I have not been able to prove it, but I highly suspect that RT is somehow connected to Rupert Murdoch (News Corporation), because it has all the trademarks of FOX news. Albeit, the entire spectrum of Mass Media has been perpetuating the lie that an Anti-Islam movie is the source of the mayhem across Muslim countries. This is a sentiment that I do not support. I did some tweeting over the weekend of headlines just prior to the US embassy attack in Benghazi that leads me to believe that the source of the new wave of uprising is due to heavy loss of innocent lives was caused to Drone attacks, executed by the US (illegally). This is one aspect of a greater and deeper coordinated attack on American xenophobia.

Mass Media Fueling the Flames

Every mainstream media source I’ve heard or read from the first day until over the weekend continues to attribute the riots, attacks, and protesting on the film, “Innocence of Muslims;” a crude, poorly directed, and cheaply produced “movie” about Muhammad. The media leaves out the fact that the United States has been using drones to attack Al Qaeda in many of these countries where the protesting is starting. Also, the US via NATO, is also the source of sowing discord among the various factions of Islam within those countries to set them in motion for overthrowing the government that is in charge. The US lies to the “rebels” and tells them that if they overthrow their own leaders “organically” without the US obvious help at some point in time the UN or world at large will beg the US to intervene and then they will come in and support the opposition, but what ends up happening is something entirely different.

Case in point: Egypt. Egyptian rebels and separatists were encouraged to rise up against Mubarak. Why? The US has/had a working relationship with this country and probably couldn’t just back out without due cause. The people rose up, the government of Mubarak was removed, but rather than allowing the Muslims establish their own country the way they wanted, using Islamic Rule, rather than a Democracy or a Republic such as the US, they (The US) installed their own crony and seized control once again via military. This has infuriated the youth and those who were promised to have their own country. Mubarak was already in the US pocket and was helping to keep the peace between the radicals and Israel in that portion of the country. Why remove him? He was actually protecting the Christians as well. Since Mubarak was removed the persecution of Christians rose and is not stopping. You can see the same scenario play out in Iraq, Sudan, Libya, etc. It appears that our US government is the one igniting the wild fire.

Here’s an Example: (Egypt)

“Coptic Christians have been in Egypt for thousands of years. During Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year rule, they were often excluded from government, but their religious leader Pope Shenouda III publicly endorsed and campaigned for Mubarak. In exchange, the Muslim Mubarak passed laws favored by the church, like this strict divorce law that applied only to Christians. In return, the dictator had the reluctant backing of Egypt’s 8 million Copts.

But even though Shenouda continued to support Mubarak throughout the uprisings, many Christians took part in the Tahrir Square protests.

This year, even before Mubarak was deposed, Coptic Christians were the target of a suicide bombing. Just last week, 26 died during violent protests that were sparked by an attack on a Cairo church.

With Mubarak gone, Egypt’s Copts lost a protector.”

(Iraq)

The Christian community in Iraq is one of the oldest in the region, dating back about 2,000 years, well before the introduction of Islam.

Since the start of the Iraq war in 2003, however, much the community has fled the country, diminishing its population within Iraq’s borders by about half.

Under Saddam Hussein, Iraq was ruled by the Baath party, a secular government. Hussein himself was a Sunni Muslim; Sunni Muslims comprise about 35 percent of Iraqis.

Since Hussein’s government was a minority government. Other minorities, including Christians, “felt much more protected under the Hussein regime than they do currently,” says Brian Katulis of the Center for American Progress.

(Syria)

Syria is a minority rule system, with Shia Alawite Muslims — who comprise only a small percentage of the population — wielding the most power, and with the Druze, Ismailis and Christians also playing important roles.

As the rest of the world turns on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who is an Alawite, Syria’s Christian population is steadfastly pulling for the dictator – and has for years.

What’s in it for them?
Christians get “very good business contracts, positions in government and the Syrian military,” says Andrew Tabler of The Washington Institute. “They get preferential treatment and protection of their places of worship.”

Because of this, Syria’s Christians have access to scholarships and opportunities to study abroad.

What’s in it for Assad?
For one thing, Syria’s Christians are “some of the most strident supporters of Assad,” according to Tabler. “They’re bridges to other countries and the international community. Assad thinks that helps the broader public perception of his regime.”

How does Assad keep them loyal?
Besides ambassadorships?

The regime stokes fear of Muslim violence among the Christian minority. Tabler says “It’s part of priming the pump. In Syria they do this by spreading fears (among Christians) that Islamists want to kill them … It’s an old divide and rule tactic.”

In Libya and in other countries where these protests and riots are happening there are counter rallies. There are people lifting up handmade signs showing support for America, and condemning the attacks. There are people who do not wish to be bombed into annihilation over the attacks on the embassies. The angst in the US is and has been fostered to be one of anti-Islam as well. I hate to admit that the lefties have one right but they do. When I heard this weekend one commentator state that this issue is not a political one, “Remember,” he said, “On September 11th 2001 we were attacked while President George W. Bush was in office so it was not something that had to do with political party.” True. The attack on the USS Cole happened on Clinton’s watch, I remember that. I remember being perplexed at the fact that two guys on a boat could get that close to a US Carrier and attack our ship that way. Hmmm, I hope the US government is not “allowing” by default not protecting us on credible information, simply to use these attacks as “opportunities” to twist them to their own self seeking gain!

How the Church is fueling the flames as well

Sine September 11th there has been a thwarted effort within the church (Christian Church at large in the US) to feed propaganda to American Christians. I’ve heard the false teachers, the shysters who are quick to sell a book by banking on our fears and our own patriotism, that the evil Muslim people are hell bent to kill all of America. I’ve heard it with my own ears and seen it with my own eyes, various movies, books, speakers, all spouting that there is a movement within the Islamic world to bring forth a Caliphate and they will stop at nothing to kill every blue eyed blonde haired red blooded American in their sleep if the US “Church” doesn’t rise up to stop them. I will go as far as to say that there are a few “generals” and “knights” who have had their sole purpose to militarize the American Christian. These people have swords in their logos and crests and terminology that leads you to believe you need to be signed up for the Christian Army (if we had one they’d sign up in a heartbeat) and arm themselves for battle.

The Corrupt US Government and the Apostate Church Working in conjunction will spell Ethnic Wars abroad and at home, S-O-O-N.

If you stop to consider that the “Axis of Evil” and those “Dictators” were actually staving off full blown Christian Persecution you might ask yourself, “Why then would the US government (the one that claims to be “Christian” based) seek to remove protection of the Christians there to allow the people of those countries in turn to place an Islamic Rule based Government? Could it be, as I have suggested already, that the corrupt US government is actually facilitating the “divide and rule” ideology?

Never mind what doctrine says, “Let’s roll,” is the sentiment. We battle not against flesh and blood brethren. (Ephesians 6:12)

And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10:28

US drone strike ‘kills 16′ in Pakistan- http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-19368433

“Drone attacks frequently target Pakistan’s restive tribal areas, where many insurgents have taken shelter.

The frequency of the attacks has increased since President Barack Obama took office in 2009.

A number of militants, some of them senior, have been killed in the raids, but many civilians have also died.”

Pakistan deaths in ‘US drone strike’– http://www.aljazeera.com/news/asia/2012/07/201272914340207132.html

“There has been a dramatic increase in US drone strikes in Pakistan since May, when a NATO summit in Chicago could not strike a deal to end a six-month blockade on convoys transporting supplies to coalition forces in Afghanistan.

Washington regards Pakistan’s semi-autonomous northwestern tribal belt as the main hub of Taliban and Al-Qaeda fighters plotting attacks on the West and in Afghanistan.

Drone strikes are likely to be a major issue discussed by Pakistan’s spymaster, Lieutenant General Zaheer ul-Islam, and his CIA counterpart, when the former visits Washington on August 1-3.

Islam’s trip on Wednesday marks the first Washington visit in a year by the head of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence and signals a thaw in relations beset by crisis since US troops killed Osama bin Laden near Islamabad in May 2011.

On July 3 however, Islamabad agreed to end the blockade after the US apologized for the deaths of 24 Pakistani soldiers in botched air strikes last November.

In protest at US drone attacks, local Taliban and Pakistani warlord Hafiz Gul Bahadur have banned vaccinations in North and South Waziristan, putting 240,000 children in the region at risk.

They have condemned the immunization campaign as a cover for espionage. In May, a Pakistani doctor was jailed for 33 years after helping the CIA find bin Laden using a hepatitis vaccination program as a cover.”

*Just as a side note, because I’m so infuriated with this it bears repeating at least to those who aren’t brainwashed. From day one, even on 9-11-2012 when I put up my post on remembering 9-11, I had tied the link between the US government’s use of CIA and black ops in the countries where we are now seeing all this chaos. One the day (late evening)  of the Embassy attacks, rather that Tuesday morning following, the Glenn Beck site, “The Blaze,” was already quickly pumping out propaganda that the sole reason for the upheavel was the (fake) film. Now, Glenn Beck has had an epiphany and is touting his “intel” that leads him to believe that this was and has been a “coordinated” attack. He’s a liar and he’s used by the same people the MSM take their orders from. This man makes me sick with his propaganda. Sure, now he is on the right track but it’s not because he has any “discernment” nor is it even his “intel;” but rather, this man is handed a script to read and other people tell him what to say. The same people who tweeted his Blaze stories within the first days are now awe struck and sickened at his suggestion that this was “OUR” (the US Government’s) doing. Well, grab a notepad folks and do some of your own research. You’ll find that GB takes his truth lives here serum from other websites. Don’t think for a second that this guy doesn’t have trolls meandering the web and social media for his “intel.” Anyway, Please, if you’re a Beckbot–consider a fast and get away long enough from him to test his spirit.

The Mexicans are Coming!

Let me start by stating this disclaimer: I am an American of half Mexican and half Colombian descent and not ashamed to say it.

This post will likely make everyone angry– I’m an equal opportunity offender. Of course you heard about Obama’s recent political (tactical) move yesterday right, if not where have you been? I will sum up: Janet Napolitano the Secretary of Department of Homeland Security recently modified immigration status of “Dreamers” by giving leniency to those immigrants/illegal aliens who do not pose a threat to National Security, who are under a certain age, etc. (the fine details will be listed below) the opportunity to stay in the US. After she stated this Barack Obama the following day, yesterday, conducted a circus show, I mean a “press briefing” from the Rose Garden to restate what she stated but it was him saying it and it looked presidential and like he passed a new law or drew up an Executive Order (which he did not), he merely gained votes in the eyes of the Hispanic community (maybe).

Friday morning I was awakened to texts from a fellow Christian Conservative friend who was asking me random questions about illegals and immigration. Without having a clue that she was posing these questions based on the impending Potus Statement on this “modified immigration” stance I replied telling her not to worry, that all presidents play with immigration and it’s basically condoned and controlled slave labor and when they issue sweeping amnesty it’s usually to solidify votes for said party who’s granting the amnesty. I mean really are we that easily duped by FOX news that we can’t recall when Ronald Regan did this? Or how about when after World War ll then President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Mexican President  Manuel Ávila Camacho hammered out plans to allow Mexicans into the US to help in the labor force: Google the Bracero Program. Our young Latinos often don’t know American History let alone how we are interwoven in American History. Let’s face it,  American History is specifically rendered to give an impression that this country was overrun with Native Savages before the Colonists came to rescue them from pagan third world living. I remember two pages in a history book that covered the entire span of Slavery and racial bigotry in the US, and wanted to throw the book through my college window. Back to Barack.

Obama did not effectively “Legalize” 800,000 Mexicans ok. Let’s just get that straight people. I know the Conservative Right wants you to fear everyone, fear the gay and lesbian, fear the Muslims, fear the Mexicans, but try not to swallow the blue pill just yet, try using some good old fashion discernment and logic if nothing else.

Janet Napolitano, yes probably at the directive of Obama or whomever lobbyist requested this, is calling for a smarter approach to Immigration. I do not claim to know all the issues or the ins and outs of policy right now. What I do want is to draw to your attention that there was never an Executive Order by Barack Hussein Obama, and there’s no legal status being given, it is a political ploy that’s designed to meet certain specifications. First, in it’s outward appearance Latino’s y Latina’s may think that Obama is for amnesty of legalizing some Hispanics, sorry–he’s not, he likes keeping them illegal for obvious reasons. Second, the Conservative right can start their propaganda that Obama is going to turn the good ole’ USofA into Mexico and conversely spread racism, fear, and hatred of brown people.

What Janet and Barry did; here is the Official Announcement of what was done

Secretary Napolitano Announces Deferred Action Process for Young People Who Are Low Enforcement Priorities

Release Date: June 15, 2012

For Immediate Release
Office of the Press Secretary
Contact: 202-282-8010

La Secretaria Napolitano Anuncia Proceso De Acción Diferida Para Jóvenes Que Sean De Baja Prioridad Para La Aplicación De La Ley

WASHINGTON— Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano today announced that effective immediately, certain young people who were brought to the United States as young children, do not present a risk to national security or public safety, and meet several key criteria will be considered for relief from removal from the country or from entering into removal proceedings. Those who demonstrate that they meet the criteria will be eligible to receive deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and will be eligible to apply for work authorization.

“Our nation’s immigration laws must be enforced in a firm and sensible manner,” said Secretary Napolitano. “But they are not designed to be blindly enforced without consideration given to the individual circumstances of each case. Nor are they designed to remove productive young people to countries where they may not have lived or even speak the language. Discretion, which is used in so many other areas, is especially justified here.”

DHS continues to focus its enforcement resources on the removal of individuals who pose a national security or public safety risk, including immigrants convicted of crimes, violent criminals, felons, and repeat immigration law offenders. Today’s action further enhances the Department’s ability to focus on these priority removals.

Under this directive, individuals who demonstrate that they meet the following criteria will be eligible for an exercise of discretion, specifically deferred action, on a case by case basis:

  1. Came to the United States under the age of sixteen;
  2. Have continuously resided in the United States for a least five years preceding the date of this memorandum and are present in the United States on the date of this memorandum;
  3. Are currently in school, have graduated from high school, have obtained a general education development certificate, or are honorably discharged veterans of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States;
  4. Have not been convicted of a felony offense, a significant misdemeanor offense, multiple misdemeanor offenses, or otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety;
  5. Are not above the age of thirty.

Only those individuals who can prove through verifiable documentation that they meet these criteria will be eligible for deferred action. Individuals will not be eligible if they are not currently in the United States and cannot prove that they have been physically present in the United States for a period of not less than 5 years immediately preceding today’s date. Deferred action requests are decided on a case-by-case basis. DHS cannot provide any assurance that all such requests will be granted. The use of prosecutorial discretion confers no substantive right, immigration status, or pathway to citizenship. Only the Congress, acting through its legislative authority, can confer these rights. (emphasis mine)

While this guidance takes effect immediately, USCIS and ICE expect to begin implementation of the application processes within sixty days. In the meantime, individuals seeking more information on the new policy should visit USCIS’s website (at www.uscis.gov), ICE’s website (at www.ice.gov), or DHS’s website (at www.dhs.gov). Beginning Monday, individuals can also call USCIS’ hotline at 1-800-375-5283 or ICE’s hotline at 1-888-351-4024 during business hours with questions or to request more information on the forthcoming process.

For individuals who are in removal proceedings and have already been identified as meeting the eligibility criteria and have been offered an exercise of discretion as part of ICE’s ongoing case-by-case review, ICE will immediately begin to offer them deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal.

So the Mexicans aren’t coming, but if they did leave you’d know it!

For a full explanation on what “Prosecutorial Discretion” is and isn’t please don’t tune to FOX news, they are a propaganda machine, when it comes to exposing ‘the right’ it will never happen there. I know this will freak some of my staunch conservatives out but bear in mind it’s teaching you what Prosecutorial Discretion is ok, click here: http://mediamatters.org/research/201206160002

There’s nothing to be ashamed about being Hispanic, or being American, or being both!
