US Government Against Humanity - Against America  
Government Against Humanity
Knowing that the US foreign policy is directed by the private Council on Foreign Relations that is "guided" in its direction by (the Rothschild-Rockefeller-Goldman etc henchman) Soros, where has their policy led? The author of Washington's blog has a good take on the situation and the surface reasoning behind it. Some recent articles by him illustrate well the relentless and callous pursuit of money, power and control at any cost in human life and suffering and regardless of damage to the climate and nature itself. In defining the principals, architects and their servants, misanthropic, psychopathic and sociopathic do not adequately describe their total lack of conscience. Their servants include leaders and whole regimes of many countries as illustrated by the support for the illegal destruction of Libya given by Australia, NZ, Canada, the Scandinavian countries and others as well as the main actors appropriately acronymed F UK US and their client regimes in the Middle East. The UN is a major participant in progressing the war to subjugate humanity. The following exerpts are supported by many examples and links to other articles at the sources -

Endless War Is a Feature – Not a Bug – of U.S. Policy
We are in the middle of a perpetual series of wars.
As just one example, in 2010 the war in Afghanistan became the longest war in U.S. history.  But - no matter what you've heard - there are no plans to get out any time soon.
[...] Why is the war of terror being waged indefinitely?
Many have said that “war is the health of the state”,  and Thomas Paine wrote in the Rights of Man:
"In reviewing the history of the English Government, its wars and its taxes, a bystander, not blinded by prejudice, nor warped by interest, would declare, that taxes were not raised to carry on wars, but that wars were raised to carry on taxes."
[...] James Madison said:
"In time of actual war, great discretionary powers are constantly given to the Executive Magistrate. Constant apprehension of War, has the same tendency to render the head too large for the body. A standing military force, with an overgrown Executive will not long be safe companions to liberty. The means of defence against foreign danger, have been always the instruments of tyranny at home. Among the Romans it was a standing maxim to excite a war, whenever a revolt was apprehended. Throughout all Europe, the armies kept up under the pretext of defending, have enslaved the people."
Madison also noted that never-ending war tends to destroy both liberty and prosperity
[...] Greenwald noted in October:
"As the Founders all recognized, nothing vests elites with power – and profit – more than a state of war."
[...] Indeed, top American military officials and national defense experts say that our specific actions in the “war on terror” are creating more terrorists and more war.
As Greenwald points out today, the endless nature of the war on terror is a feature, not a bug:
"There’s a good reason US officials are assuming the “War on Terror” will persist indefinitely: namely, their actions ensure that this occurs."
[...] Indeed,  the American government has directly been supporting Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups for the last decade.
[...] And the American government lies – and even kills its own – to justify new wars.
Top American economists say that endless war has ruined our economy.  It benefits a handful of elites, while levying a tax on the vast majority of Americans.
Congress members – part of the super-elite which has made money hand over fist during this economic downturn – are heavily invested in the war industry, and routinely trade on inside information … perhaps even including planned military actions.
No wonder the American government is making the state of war permanent, and planning to unleash new, widespread  wars in the near future.
Postscript: Under Bush, it was the "war on terror". Obama has re-branded the perpetual fighting as "humanitarian war".
But - underneath the ever-changing marketing and branding campaign - it's really just the good 'ole military-industrial-and-banking complex consolidating their power and making money hand over fist.

The War On Terror Spreads to Africa: U.S. Sending Troops to 35 African Nations
The U.S. is sending troops to 35 African nations under the guise of fighting Al Qaeda and related terrorists.
Democracy Now notes:
"U.S. Army teams will be deploying to as many as 35 African countries early next year for training programs and other operations as part of an increased Pentagon role in Africa. The move would see small teams of U.S. troops dispatched to countries with groups allegedly linked to al-Qaeda, such as Libya, Sudan, Algeria and Niger. The teams are from a U.S. brigade that has the capability to use drones for military operations in Africa if granted permission. The deployment could also potentially lay the groundwork for future U.S. military intervention in Africa."
[...] Glenn Ford writes:
"The 2nd Brigade is scheduled to hold more than 100 military exercises in 35 countries, most of which have no al-Qaida presence. So, although there is no doubt that the U.S. will be deeply involved in the impending military operation in Mali, the 2nd Brigade’s deployment is a much larger assignment, aimed at making all of Africa a theater of U.S. military operations. The situation in Mali is simply a convenient, after-the-fact rationale for a long-planned expansion of the U.S. military footprint in Africa."
[...] Timothy Alexander Guzman argues:
"AFRICOM’s [the U.S. military's Africa command] goal is to eliminate China and other countries influence in the region."
[...] In reality – as we’ve repeatedly noted – the U.S. sends in the military to fight “terrorists” in any country which has resources we want
And the U.S. is not shy about backing our “mortal enemies” to topple those standing between us and resources we pine for.
Anthony Carlucci argues that the overthrow of Gaddafi (largely through American support of terrorists) was really the opening salvo in the war for African resources

What Obama’s Nominations Mean: The Military Is Being Downsized … But Covert Operations Are Gearing Up
The CIA Is Taking Over the Dirty Work in Fighting America’s Wars
Obama has nominated a veteran – not a chickenhawk – to serve as Secretary of Defense.
[...] Indeed, while all of the neocon warmongers are chickenhawks who dodged service to their country, many veterans and active-duty service men are opposed to the endless wars, which only weaken our national security and increase terrorism.
No wonder Hagel is more moderate than those who want to start conflagrations all over the world.
The Washington Post reports:
"Last year, Hagel endorsed a report by the advocacy group Global Zero that called for an 80 percent reduction in the U.S. nuclear-weapons arsenal. Such a cut could save $100 billion over 10 years, the group estimated."
[...] On the other hand, Obama’s nominee for CIA director – John Brennan – endorsed torture, assassination of unidentified strangers without due process, and spying on all Americans. He also spouted complete though highly influential falsehoods to the world in the immediate aftermath of the Osama bin Laden killing, including claiming that bin Laden “engaged in a firefight” with Navy SEALS and had “used his wife as a human shield”. Brennan has also been in charge of many of Obama’s most controversial and radical policies, including “signature strikes” in Yemen – targeting people without even knowing who they are – and generally seizing the power to determine who will be marked for execution without any due process, oversight or transparency.
What do these two nominations tell us?
That the Obama administration doesn’t plan on fighting as many conventional wars with men in uniform – soldiers, sailors, pilots and marines – but does plan to crank up assassinations, drone strikes and other covert operations worldwide.

A commenter at Zerohedge (link) wrote -
The American government took the peoples tax money and gave it to the CIA who backed and funded Castro (in the late 1950's) before their several attempts at waging war on Cuba in the 1960's.
The CIA did the exact same thing with Saddam.
The CIA did the exact same thing with Osama and the Taliban.
The CIA did the exact same thing with Pakistan.
The CIA did the exact same thing with Panamanian dictator/CIA asset Manuel Noriega.
The CIA working for corporate America through both Democrat and Republican parties always, always, always funds and sets up the next enemy. That is the only way to ensure that the USA's number one business (WAR for PROFIT) can continue in perpetuity.
The Sheeple seem to be stuck in a simplistic unreal fantasy world where there is actually some difference between the Mafia Familys of the Dems and Repubs.[...]
Wall Street and the City of London declared war on the resource-owning world centuries ago. Nicaragua used to be called the "Republic of Brown Brothers". The CIA and the US military in general have staged coups in over 50 countries since WWII, successfully in over 35, all to facilitate the acquisition of their resources — armed robbery on the ultimate grand scale. These wars going on right now are for Middle Eastern hydrocarbons, though less to get than to deny China getting (for all the good it will do us — we're toast and China knows it.)
"The Association for Responsible Dissent estimates that from the CIA's inception in 1947 to 1987, 6 million people had died as a result of CIA covert operations."
Throw in another 2 million from 1987 to 2007, interpolated from the above estimate.
"At least 869,720 people have been killed in Afghanistan and Iraq since the U.S. and coalition attacks, based on lowest credible estimates." So let's call that another 1 million.
That makes 9 million total.
Government against the electorate
There have been many examples of Western regimes acting against the country hypothetically in their charge. Recent actions that have reinforced the US regime against the public -
U.S. Government Using Terrorism Against the American People
[...] For example, the U.S. government is doing the following things to terrorize the American public into docility and compliance:
Labeling peaceful protest as terrorism
Using homeland security laws to crush dissent
Spying on all Americans
Threatening to indefinitely detain American citizens without cause and without any due process
Even threatening to kill any U.S. citizen on a whim
U.S. constitutional law has taught for hundreds of years that chilling the exercise of our liberties is as dangerous to freedom than directly suppressing them.
[...] Any reporters who don't censor themselves are harassed .  Whistleblowers are prosecuted ... or even tortured by the government.
The fact that the government is spying on all Americans - and using the information to launch political witch hunts - makes us all watch what we say, and makes us careful about who we talk to.
[...] The bottom line is that - like Stalin, Mao or Hitler - the U.S. government is using  violence and threats to intimidate and coerce its own people for political purposes ... to consolidate power and suppress dissent.
Source http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2013/01/u-s-government-using-terrorism-against-the-american-people.html
Maybe that last should read "the US gov is being used and through it by means of violence and threats..."

Government and Big Banks Joined Forces to Violently Crush Peaceful Protests
The definition of fascism used by Mussolini is the “merger of state and corporate power“.
Government and the big banks are in a malignant, symbiotic relationship. And our economy now exhibits a merger of
state and bank power.
[...] The government and banks use anti-terror laws to stifle dissent.
As Naomi Wolf reports, they joined efforts to violently crush the occupy protests - link
Peaceful Protest Treated as Terrorism By the FBI
[...] Yves Smith notes that newly-declassified documents prove that the federal government treated peaceful protesters as terrorists - link
[...] In fact, according to Department of Defense training manuals, all protest is now considered “low-level terrorism”. And see this, this and this.
And an Army colonel has written a paper advocating military methods for “crushing” a Tea Party type insurgency.
Indeed, doing anything to challenge government or big bank policies can get you labeled a potential terrorist in America today.
Source http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2012/12/government-and-big-banks-joined-forces-to-violently-crush-peaceful-protests.html

Overt Martial law, (covertly already mostly established) is the objective. Various means are in place to drive insurrection to that end, the impending runaway inflation is the least harmful, more immediately damaging are hunger driven by poverty - 128 million get gov't handouts, and increasing food prices (ethanol from corn, taxing energy etc.), overruling the constitution (e.g. patriot act, rifle ban etc.), increasing tax, and so on.
The flashpoint hasn't been achieved. Yet. When it does it will likely be another SNAFU. Participants in an insurrection would likely target the tools that have been used against them, i.e. those in the facade regime, rather than their controllers, e.g the Pilgrims Society upper hierarchy and its CFR and Bilderberg, CoR, AIPAC etc.

Public university professors join ranks of Sandy Hook conspiracy theorists
Two professors at mainstream, respected state universities are advocating conspiracy theories about the Dec. 14 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School.
James Tracy, a tenured associate professor of media history Florida Atlantic University and a one-time union leader, has claimed that the school shooting didn’t happen as it was widely reported and perhaps didn’t happen at all, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
“As documents relating to the Sandy Hook shooting continue to be assessed and interpreted by independent researchers, there is a growing awareness that the media coverage of the massacre of 26 children and adults was intended primarily for public consumption to further larger political ends,” Tracy wrote on his blog, according to the Sun-Sentinel.
Tracy said he believes that the Sandy Hook shooting could have been constructed to increase public support for gun control.

German Journalist: West-led Armed Opposition in Syria will Fail
[...] Meanwhile, the strategic situation has changed. Syria refuses to fall and defends itself while radical foreign mercenaries infiltrate Israel’s neighborhood from almost all borders. Maybe Tel Aviv tries to support some of the groups with arms and intelligence, and as you said, it’s already reported that Israeli weapons were captured in Syria by the security forces.

US heading for point when 'military pursuit of al-Qaida should end'
Fight against terrorist group on course for Obama to stop using legal authority given by Congress to wage war, says lawyer
The US is heading for a "tipping point" beyond which it should no longer pursue al-Qaida terrorists by military means, one of the Obama administration's most senior lawyers has said.
Jeh Johnson suggested the group would become so degraded that a time would come when the legal authority given to the White House by Congress should no longer be used to justify waging the war that has been fought since 2001.
Johnson said that when this happened, America had to "be able to say ... that our efforts should no longer be considered an armed conflict against al-Qaida and its affiliates".
Instead, the responsibility for tackling al-Qaida should pass to the police and other law enforcement agencies.
