Congress Okays Obama’s Tactics to Arm Rebels in Syria and Elsewhere — Will America Ever Learn Its Lesson?

President Barack Obama wants to do something about ISIS, but he is scared to death to go too far.  Boots on the ground (even though almost everyone in America already knows there already are and will continue to be boots on the ground everywhere in the Middle East) would cause a major political backlash, he fears, and with a critical election just around the corner, nobody wants to look like the latest one to step on the war machine revolving door.  So, Obama is employing a different tactic.  America will bomb ISIS to pieces every chance it gets, regardless of which nation’s toes it has to step on to do it.  And America will continue a time-honored tradition of failure:

The problem with training Syrians to fight ISIS is they still remember the training later when they decide to fight America.  Oh, and they still have the guns too.

arming rebels and other factions that happen to agree with Obama on this particular issue.

You don’t have to look back too far in history to see what happens when you spend money and resources arming a group of people who agree with you at this moment, but don’t necessarily agree with you in general as a way of life.  Remember everyone’s favorite terrorist Osama bin Laden?  He was our friend once, remember?  Oh yeah, no one remembers that part.  Remember Iran?  Iraq?  America seems to not be able to think but one move ahead on the chessboard.  Arming Syrians and Iraqis to help stamp out ISIS sounds like a great plan that will save tons of American lives by allowing us to throw stones from afar instead of being on the front lines.  However, if one could flash forward five, maybe even ten years, one shouldn’t be surprised to find that those same weapons and resources we are giving these factions may very well be turned against us.

America is proving once again that it does not learn lessons from anything it does.  Once again, President Obama is getting America involved in a conflict that at this present time seems to have little or nothing to do with America.  Is ISIS a threat to America?  Well, it depends on who you ask.  The government made it pretty clear that they don’t believe there is an imminent threat of an attack on American soil at the hands of ISIS, even though others have said that there are probably already operatives here just waiting and biding their time.  As with most things in American politics, no one can seem to agree on anything, but at least Congress and Obama see eye to eye on one thing:  they are going to arm people that aren’t necessarily really our friends outside of wanting to escape the clutches of ISIS.

It would be nice to say that this is going to be a hard lesson learned for Americans, but unfortunately, there is no reason to think that America will learn the lesson this time either.  Find the names of these factions that America is arming.  Write them down.  Today they are friends.  Four, five years down the road, you will hear the mainstream media emblazoning them as the new big bad boy terrorist network gunning for America.

Entire Leadership of Opposition to ISIS Wiped Out in Explosion Just After Obama’s Pledge to Help Them

The mainstream media isn’t having much to say about this. It seems that an “unexplained explosion” wiped out most of the leadership in opposition to the terror organization ISIS or ISIL or the Islamic State or crazy ass mo-fo’s (whichever you prefer). This was just after President Obama pledged to fight the Islamic State everywhere and anywhere and to give tons of weapons to these guys who are now dead. You would think something like that would be a pretty big story in the mainstream media. I mean, a major part of President Obama’s “coalition” is dead already. Without leadership, who are we giving our money and arms to? Do we really just trust an unorganized group of other Muslims with no leader to take our things and do what we want them to do to the other bad Muslims that we have decided are our enemy presently? Yet, no mention of it anywhere, whatsoever. Why do you think that is?

Asteroid 2014 RC Passes Very Close to Earth — Only Discovered Five Days Ago?

All sources agree.  Asteroid 2014 RC is going to pass so close that it will be shorter than the distance between the Earth and the Moon this weekend, but despite the astronomical close shave, there is little chance that the asteroid strikes the Earth in a cataclysmic event.

Go ahead.  Let out that sigh of relief.  Now for the bad part.

Asteroid 2014 RC was only discovered five days ago!  So, if it had been just a slightly different distance, this could be a much more troubling story.  What do you think?  Is it something to worry about that we are routinely discovering asteroids this close to the Earth only a few scant days before they pass by?

CISPA is Back — Your Computer is the NSA’s Latest Greatest Spy

It’s pretty much never-ending at this point.  Each year, a new acronym for a bill presented to Congress that will put the ratchet down on Internet freedom rises to the surface as millions aim to shoot it down.  It’s become tiresome.  That’s exactly why they keep pushing these things.  Remember SOPA and the countless others?  CISPA is just the latest version, but they are counting on the American public to finally have gotten tired of this or to think that the new version is the same one that has already been defeated.  They want to slip it through, and then when it hits the books, they can all pat themselves on the back at having worked another clever con job on the American public.  Just look at what CISPA means in the infographic below:

Many Question Official Story from Police From Supposed Fireworks Set Off at West Alabama State Fair — Gunshots?

The West Alabama State Fair held in Sokol Park in the town of Northport, AL was interrupted by what many believed to be gunshots Saturday night.  As you might imagine, people reacted by making a mob run at the exits.  However, police have vehemently denied the reports of gunshots, saying that instead someone set off fireworks in trash cans, causing the illusion of gunshots and mass panic.  Not only did the fair reopen quickly, but it is now offering free admission the next day to try to regain attendance after the incident.

People on the ground in Northport are telling a much different story, however.  There are literally dozens of accounts of the incident making their way on social media, and many are questioning the official story being given.  The police gave the story and local newspaper The Tuscaloosa News is reporting it as if the police story were fact.  There is no mention in local news stories of the possibility that the police aren’t telling the whole story.

String together a narrative from several eyewitness accounts, it appears that a couple of girls were in a dispute around the time of the shootings.  Nearly everyone’s account agrees that gunfire erupted.  The fight apparently had escalated to a very violent state leading up to the first gunshot.  Many eyewitness accounts indicate that there was no trash can anywhere near the incident, which police say is the method by which the fireworks were set off.  Some even observed people returning later to pick up the shells.  What’s more, many have went on to say that fireworks did go off later, but this was several minutes after the incident and didn’t have anything to do with the mobs seeking the exits.

The real question is why would the police there on the scene in Northport be covering up a shooting?  As far as anyone knows, no one was killed or injured.  Instead of covering it up, it seems it would have been just as advantageous to give the details of the incident, blame it on the guilty parties, and remind everyone that it was an isolated incident and no reason to not enjoy the fair.  However, now there is so much doubt about the incident that it is probably backfiring on them, causing even more people to wonder what exactly is going on in Sokol Park.

Rick Perry Says ISIS Operatives Already in the United States — Real Threat or Preparing Us for False Flag?

In between getting booked into jail and making political speeches, Texas governor Rick Perry has some dire warnings for the American public.  In the ongoing border crisis (you know, the one that has been going on for your whole life), Perry says that it is entirely possible that operatives of everyone’s new favorite terror organization ISIS have hopscotched right over the border and into the United States.

Maybe politicians in the United States should just have mug shots taken as soon as they go into office, just to make things easier.

He’s right.  It is entirely possible.  ISIS is a relatively new terror organization on the scene.  They are making a splash fast with their bloodbaths in Iraq and Syria and now the very public beheading of an American journalist.  That’s what makes it even more scary.  ISIS seems to have sprung up from nowhere, but they didn’t really.  This ball started rolling a long time before these latest atrocities, and if they played it smart, ISIS may very well have gotten boatloads of their operatives into the United States before the average citizen had ever even heard of what they were.  Remember our friends at Al-Qaida.  They sent in the 9/11 hijackers who literally infiltrated our nation and spent years getting the education and experience they needed to carry out their mission (this all assuming you believe that is what happened, but that’s another story).  Sure, it got really difficult for them to get in post-9/11, but up until then, it was pretty easy.  The same was probably true for ISIS.

Perry’s motivations are another story.  Why is he bringing this up?  Is he supposed to be talking about this?  It is assumed that the CIA, FBI, and the federal government in general have to know that this was a distinct possibility.  Certainly Obama should not be surprised at this revelation.  So, is Perry using political motivations to spill a threat to the American public that isn’t supposed to be discussed?  Or is this a carefully orchestrated moment for America to start being spoon-fed the information that will ultimately be a false flag terror attack on our soil once again.

Much like Al-Qaida, it’s hard to get a lot of support from the average American citizen because ISIS is committing atrocities half a world away in Iraq.  But when things strike close to home, it’s a whole different story.  Could we be bracing ourselves for 9/11 Part II?

Are We Seeing a Martial Law Declaration in Ferguson, Missouri?

President Barack Obama weighed in on the events in Ferguson, Missouri by doing what Presidents generally don’t do in such situations: completely taking one side over the other. He made it clear that he believes that 18-year-old Michael Brown was killed by a white police officer who abused his authority. This is kind of messed up if you think about it. The President in one sentence is calling out to the people of Ferguson, Missouri to stop dismantling the town with

violent rioting and looting, but in the next sentence, he takes a side that will only make them feel more entitled to keep doing what they are doing. Another great example of really knowing how to heal the divisions in America. But could there be more at work here?The situation in Ferguson is now so bad that the governor of Missouri has indicated the Eric Holder and the President that the local police will be removed from power and state authorities will secure Ferguson, Missouri. We assume that means the national guard and other state agencies. With Obama already pledging plenty of federal support, how far are we from a full militarization of the zone around Ferguson, Missouri? With Obama doing little more than stoking the fire with his commentary, it almost seems as if the government wants this situation to spiral even further out of control. Will we see a martial law declaration in Ferguson, Missouri?

Representative John Lewis from Georgia is calling on President Barack Obama to do just that. He wants to see martial law imposed because he says that the police not only are doing a terrible job of keeping control and safeguarding the town, but they are actually stepping on the rights of citizens to peacefully protest. Apparently, not everyone in Ferguson, Missouri is using this event as an opportunity to rape and pillage, and some are gathering peacefully. How Lewis thinks martial law would help this, we can’t even imagine. If martial law is imposed, there will be absolutely no protests, peaceful or otherwise. Him calling for this is just propaganda. He knows that martial law is not an answer. The only thing martial law will guarantee is that the violence stops, at least among civilians and the police. But thinking that martial law is a way to fix citizen’s liberties being stepped on by police and government? That’s the dumbest thing we’ve heard yet.
There is a machine at work here, and it seems that all the moving parts are eagerly pushing for a common goal. What exactly that goal is is hard to say. If martial law is imposed, officially or unofficially, it could be have many effects on the situation. Imagine if the military executes a black person. This could cause unrest across the entire nation, not just in an obscure town in Missouri. If the military executed a white person, of course, nothing would happen, because everyone knows that when something like that happens to a white person, the world goes right on without incident.
It is amazing to think how quickly this is becoming a national issue, and it could even have more far-reaching effects on down the road. What if this springboards into a conflict between the people and the government nationwide? With the affairs currently underway in the Middle East and Russia, it would be a great time for someone to make a move while America can’t even keep a little town in Missouri under control. Whatever the situation, rest assured of one thing. They know exactly what they are doing, and this is not an accident. Stay tuned to Common Sense Conspiracy as more information becomes available.
