NDAA: The Law That Sparked A Revolution In Public Perception of Washington
January 25, 2012
“Alex Jones: I have seen this NDAA and the SOPA bill and all of this wake people up who were asleep like nothing I’ve ever seen before. I mean, I’ll say the response is ten, fifteen times what the Patriot Act was. A) Are you seeing it wake people up? And b) Why do you think it’s starting to wake people up?
Chris Hedges: Well, I think, you know, there’s all sorts of intrusions into our life that are no longer theoretical. The passage of the FISA reform bill in essence makes legal what under our Constitution has traditionally been illegal and does so retroactively. The warrantless wiretapping monitoring and eavesdropping of tens of millions of Americans, the SOPA bill as you pointed out, I mean I think it’s just too hard to ignore. My understanding is that the polling on the NDAA is that only between two and nine percent of the American public supports it. This has no public support. The FISA Reform Act didn’t have any public support either. There are powerful corporate forces that want to ram it through because it protects them and this narrow oligarchic elite. But it’s left a really bad taste in the mouths of the vast majority of the American public. And this is not a left/right issue.” – An excerpt from radio host Alex Jones’sinterview of journalist, author, and former New York Times war correspondent Chris Hedges on Tuesday, January 24, 2012. Hedges discussed his suit against President Obama over his signing of the NDAA. Read his article: Why I’m Suing Barack Obama.
“I’ve talked tonight about the deficit of trust between Main Street and Wall Street. But the divide between this city and the rest of the country is at least as bad – and it seems to get worse every year.” – President Barack Obama, 2012 State of the Union address, January 24, 2012.
Washington’s back is against the wall. Its fiat petrodollar system is collapsing. Its high-tech witchhunt against terrorists that began in the fall of 2001 is absurd and criminal. The majority of the global public now understands that the official 9/11 story is fiction.
President Obama can assert all he wants that Al-Qaeda was responsible for 9/11 and that the death of Osama Bin Laden happened under his watch, but the facts do not bear this out. The truth is Al-Qaeda did not do 9/11 and Bin Laden died in late 2001, long before President Obama declared his death on television.
