Chelsea Manning in the Guardian: The CIA's torturers and the leaders who approved their actions must face the law

Daily Paul - Mon, 2015-03-09 19:53 +0000

Even the most junior level intelligence officers know that torture is both unethical and illegal. So why didn’t our political leaders?

by Chelsea E. Manning | The Guardian

Successful intelligence gathering through interrogation and other forms of human interaction by conventional means can be – and more often than not are – very successful. But, even though interrogation by less conventional methods might get glorified in popular culture – in television dramas like Law and Order: Criminal Intent, 24 and The Closer and movies like Zero Dark Thirty – torture and the mistreatment of detainees in the custody of intelligence personnel is, was and shall continue to be unethical and morally wrong. Under US law, torture and mistreatment of detainees is also very illegal.

Even the most junior level intelligence officials know that this is, and has been, the case for decades.

Yet, despite such knowledge, in response to the horrific attacks on the US in New York, Virginia and over Pennsylvania on 9/11, the US developed and applied techniques (now public knowledge due to the recent US Senate report commonly referred to as the Senate Torture Report) that sought to inflict severe mental pain and suffering, or the threat of pain and suffering, on detainees in the custody of the CIA and portions of the Department of Defense. These programs were administered by officers acting under the color of law.

Rand “Pauluses and Minuses" - Netanyahu, Sheldon Adelson, “Parks & Rec”

Daily Paul - Mon, 2015-03-09 19:51 +0000

Welcome back to a new edition of Rand "Pauluses and Minuses" where I gauge the actions of the presumed 2016 Presidential candidate and assign them a positive or negative grade. This week, let's start with the non-emphatic "clap heard 'round the world."

Rand Dispassionately Claps for Netanyahu Speech

Rand Paul's response to the speech given by Netanyahu calling for an alteration to the deal that the U.S. had on the table with Iran regarding its nuclear program garnered as much coverage as the speech itself. As you can see, Rand did participate in applauding Bibi's statements, as he's largely thrown his lot in with the Neocon crowd where Israel is concerned, but didn't go out of his way to look overly enthused.

Rand Paul Signs Cotton Letter, Seeking to Sabotage Iran Negotiations 3/9/15

Daily Paul - Mon, 2015-03-09 19:37 +0000

Rand Paul has officially "made peace with the War Party" says Justin Raimondo of Antiwar.com.

Justin has, up till now, defended Rand Paul's sometimes disappointing statements by pointing to his actual voting record and actions. His argument was strong and even swayed me from giving up on him altogether.

But here is a real concrete action. Rand Paul has officially put his name into a hideous letter that seeks to completely undermine the Iran negotiations and open the doors to further sanction and war.

As Justin says, in a statement of incredible disappointment and frank surprise, this is Rand Paul's "Munich."

One Man Holds a PATENT That Could Crush MONSANTO and Change The World

Daily Paul - Mon, 2015-03-09 17:22 +0000

We can no longer deny that the pesticide industry is causing incredibly detrimental effects to the earth, people, animals, plants & insects too. The rapid decline of the world’s bee populations is being attributed to Monsanto’s chemical concoctions that are being sprayed over farmers fields around the world. (Though the number of countries who have kicked out & banned Monsanto is growing) The use of chemical pesticides is a practice that absolutely must stop and new methods must be employed before it’s too late.

Yet with Monsanto generating nearly $16 BILLION dollars in 2014, they certainly do not want anything getting in the way of that money flow. That kind of revenue gives them a lot of resources and abilities to suppress information that may be damaging to them.

IG Audit: 6.5 Million People With Active Social Security Numbers Are 112 or Older

Daily Paul - Mon, 2015-03-09 16:29 +0000

(CNSNews.com) - Many people are living longer, but not to age 112 or beyond -- except in the records of the Social Security Administration.

The SSA's inspector general has identified 6.5 million number-holders age 112 -- or older -- for whom no death date has been entered in the main electronic file, called Numident.

The audit, dated March 4, 2015, concluded that SSA lacks the controls necessary to annote death information on the records of number-holders who exceed "maximum reasonable life expectancies."

Judicial Watch in Center of Clinton Email Storm

Daily Paul - Mon, 2015-03-09 15:38 +0000

JW in Center of Clinton Email Storm

What some in the media describe as “an obscure court filing” has exploded onto the national scene in the form of a growing scandal over Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account to conduct government business. Revelations that then-Secretary of State Clinton conducted all of her official business on a personal email account have dominated national headlines this week, and your Judicial Watch is once again in the center of the storm. I have no doubt that it was Judicial Watch’s focused Freedom of Information lawsuits, the disclosures from which led to the creation of the House Select Committee of Benghazi, which led to the uncovering of a scandal that could have criminal ramifications for Mrs. Clinton.

We knew something was up. And we had gotten hints in our blockbuster litigation that uncovered the smoking-gun documents showing Hillary’s top aides at State knew that the Benghazi terrorist attack had nothing to do with “demonstrations” or Internet videos. As Politico noted this week, there is no doubt JW’s litigation was front and center as the seven-year cover-up of Hillary’s secret emails was unraveling:

Russia (Finally) Secures a Warm Water Port from Cyprus

Daily Paul - Mon, 2015-03-09 08:05 +0000

Since forever. That's how long Russia has desired a Mediterranean port for its navy. Certainly no 'match' for the U.S. Navy in number and size but, it's not ABOUT projecting a military 'footprint' around the globe anymore. One can argue weapons technology has rendered Navies 'obsolete' anyway. (submarines excepted).
It's about global trade, the Suez canal and 'projecting' its own prosperity and access to markets. Selling oil. Shipping lanes and access to goods.. and protecting that merchant fleet with a modest capability.

Found a Note In a Used Book I Bought Yesterday: Made Me Smile

Daily Paul - Mon, 2015-03-09 05:24 +0000

Yesterday I offered to drive a friend to visit her family about 45 minutes from the city we live in.

It was a family thing, so I told her I would kill time at the run-down mall a few blocks away from her family's house, since she was only going to stay for a couple of hours.

The mall I was at is one of those aging malls of the past and it was sad to see. Maybe 2/3 of the stores were empty. The food court was closed down and all that was left were a few discount types stores and a watch repair cart.

Ron Paul's Texas Straight Talk 3/9/15:Don’t Be Fooled by the Federal Reserve’s Anti-Audit Propaganda

Don’t Be Fooled by the Federal Reserve’s Anti-Audit Propaganda
by Ron Paul

In recent weeks, the Federal Reserve and its apologists in Congress and the media have launched numerous attacks on the Audit the Fed legislation. These attacks amount to nothing more than distortions about the effects and intent of the audit bill.

Fed apologists continue to claim that the Audit the Fed bill will somehow limit the Federal Reserve’s independence. Yet neither Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen nor any other opponent of the audit bill has ever been able to identify any provision of the bill giving Congress power to dictate monetary policy. The only way this argument makes sense is if the simple act of increasing transparency somehow infringes on the Fed’s independence.

Nicely done Rand! Howard Kurtz Fox news

Daily Paul - Mon, 2015-03-09 01:39 +0000

As seen on Media Buzz

As Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) gears up for a possible presidential campaign, Howard Kurtz spoke with him on "Media Buzz" about his coverage in the press, which at times has been less than positive.

"A lot of people rise up in politics from never offending anyone, either in the public or anywhere. And their skill is in being bland," Paul explained. "I was a physician for 20 years. I just sort of look at the problem and try and figure out a solution. Sometimes not everybody agrees with me on it."

Those of you who haven't seen National Geographic in a while may not realize how politicized it's become. The last decade has been less about photographing people and lands of the world and more about pushing a particular agenda.

It makes me sad really...

Garbage Man Sentenced To 30 Days In Jail For Picking Up Trash Too Early

Daily Paul - Sun, 2015-03-08 22:12 +0000

Well this is garbage.

A sanitation worker in an Atlanta suburb has been sentenced to 30 days in jail for working too early.

Kevin McGill had been working for only a few months for a company contracted to do sanitation work in Sandy Springs when he was cited for picking up trash just after 5 a.m. one morning, according to WSB-TV.

That violated a city ordinance which limits trash pickup to between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. The statute is in place because residents have complained that early pick-up disrupts their sleep.

When McGill showed up to court to answer the citation, Sandy Springs prosecutor Bill Riley sought the maximum punishment against him — 30 days in jail.

Archeology on Saudi Soil Contains What Globalists Don't Want You to See or Know

Daily Paul - Sun, 2015-03-08 17:45 +0000

In recent news, ISIS committed what seemed to the camera as the destruction of antiquities, though some reports of rebar showing up in photos made it just the destruction of replicas for another episode of Wag The Dog.

However, I don't know a globalist anywhere on earth, of any ilk, who would want these antiquities viewed, because of the obvious links to a Higher Power that they just can't compete with.
