SOVEREIGN IMMUNITY! (S 2040: Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act – JASTA) Congress Overrides Obama’s Veto 1st Time Allowing 9/11 Victims’ Families To Sue Saudi Arabia, Which Violates Sovereign Immunity. The President Warns USA Setting A Dangerous Precedent, Which Could Come Back To Bite USA; Obama Is Right If Your Prime Directive As President Is To Protect US World Interests Whether We Are Right Or Wrong! But Tabacco Sees Silver Lining! Just Maybe Our Politicos Have Sown The Seeds Of Our Own Comeuppance! Those, America Has Exploited & Oppressed, May Now Sue USA For Our Own Inappropriateness, Iniquitousness & Incautiousness! The World Can Now ‘Hoist US On Our Own Petard’! We Bemoan ISIS, When We Should Fear Our Own Congress & Our Own Irresistible & Unrestrained Military Superiority Combined With A Callous Disregard For The Lives Of Weaker Foreign Peoples! Has Congress Accomplished What ISIS & All Its Terror Cannot?

ZAKARIA: President Obama has been in office for 2,812 days. And that time, he has vetoed exactly 12 bills. This week, congress voted overwhelmingly to override a veto for the first time in his presidency. The law allows the family members of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia. The White House called the override the single most embarrassing thing the senate has possibly done in more than 30 years.

In return, congress wondered why the administration would stop victims from seeking justice. Let me bring in CNN’s Jeff Toobin and the former CIA director, Michael Hayden to give us some much-needed context here.

Jeff, let me ask you, what exactly does this law do and how unprecedented is it?

JEFF TOOBIN, LEGAL ANALYST: Well, the law is designed very specifically so that the 9/11 family members, victims of the terror attack, can sue Saudi Arabia and at least initially begin a lawsuit alleging involvement by the government in the attacks. Continue reading

NOAM CHOMSKY, World-Renowned Political Dissident, Linguist And Author, On American Atrocities Past & Present Including His Speech In The United Nations Blasting US Support Of Israel (You Know You Won’t See That On American MSM) From Democracy Now! Interviews, March 2-3, 2015, On Cuba, Venezuela, Edward Snowden, Drones, USA’s Terrorism And History Of Slavery & Racism. The Rest Of The Planet Already Knows America’s Hypocrisies & Abominations! It’s Time Americans Finally Knew The Unadulterated Specifics About Itself! Truth Is In The Details!

NOAM CHOMSKY: The world has been totally opposed to this. The votes at the General Assembly—you can’t do it at the Security Council because the U.S. vetoes everything, but at the General Assembly, the votes are just overwhelming. I think the last one was 182 to two, you know, U.S. and Israel, and sometimes they pick up Papua or something like that. This has been going on year after year. The U.S. is utterly isolated, not just on this issue, many others.

Finally, notice that Obama didn’t end the sanctions. In fact, he didn’t even end the restrictions, many of the restrictions on travel and so on. They made a mild gesture towards moving towards normalization of relations. That’s presented here—the way it’s presented here is; we have to test Cuba to see if our long—as Obama put it, our efforts to improve the situation in Cuba have failed, right? Big efforts to improve the situation—terrorism, sanctions! The sanctions are really incredible. So, if, say, Sweden was sending medical equipment somewhere, which had Cuban nickel in it, that had to be banned, you know, things like that. Continue reading

Bush Administration’s TOP 40 LIES About WAR & TERRORISM! There Were Of Course A Plethora Of Bushite Lies, Which Concerned Other Subject Matter. But Since You Have Forgotten Bush’s Horrific Economic Legacy, I Shall Not Include It Here – A Subject For Another Day!

2) The invasion of Iraq was based on a reasonable belief that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction that posed a threat to the U.S., a belief supported by available intelligence evidence.

Paul Wolfowitz admitted to Vanity Fair that weapons of mass destruction were not really the main reason for invading Iraq:

“The decision to highlight weapons of mass destruction as the main justification for going to war in Iraq was taken for bureaucratic reasons…. [T]here were many other important factors as well.”

Right. But they did not come under the heading of self-defense.

We now know how the Bushmen gathered their prewar intelligence: They set out to patch together their case for invading Iraq and ignored everything that contradicted it. – Common Dreams Continue reading

Letter From A Dying U.S. Soldier To His Commander-In-Chief, President George W. Bush, And V.P. Richard Cheney.

German Nazi, Joseph Goebbels Quotes

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

“The most brilliant propagandist technique will yield no success unless one fundamental principle is borne in mind constantly – it must confine itself to a few points and repeat them over and over”. Continue reading

“HUBRIS: Selling The Iraq War” Is Based On Book, Co-Written By NBC News National Investigative Correspondent, Michael Isikoff, And MSNBC Contributor & Mother jones Washington Bureau Chief, David Corn. – MSNBC Special Hosted By Rachel Maddow! Tabacco: There Is Some Hypocrisy Here, Folks: Neither NBC Nor MSNBC Made Loud Protestations In 2003 When Bush Administration Lied Us Into War For Profit! I’d Like To Say, “Better Late Than Never!” But I Cannot! However, I Will Be Watching!

Host Rachel Maddow explores the DECISIONS and DISINFORMATIONS that led the nation into the conflict, and asks questions about whether the same kind of national deception could happen again. – Tabacco: The honest among us already know “Who, What, When, Where & How”, I will be focused on whether Maddow & MSNBC have the Chutzpah to ask or investigate “WHY”! If Maddow does NOT do that, she and her Network have “Kicked The Can Down The Road” for financial, political and advertising considerations – I am blessed because I have no such restrictions to worry about!
