Syrian Massacre: What Would Dr. Martin Luther King Do?

From Denny:  What would Dr. Martin Luther King, the famous advocate of non-violence, do about this critical moment in America's history?  Who is manipulating President Obama to remove Assad by violence so someone hidden out of sight can take power?  These are the type of questions no one seems to be asking themselves in the American government.

What if the chemical attacks were done by terrorist groups like the Taliban, al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood that have infiltrated the Syrian rebels - or infiltrated the Assad regime?  What if those terrorist groups were using the photos of dead children to so enrage the West that America would easily be manipulated into attacking the Assad regime, disabling its most potent weaponry and military might?

The way of a terrorist mind is to figure out how to leverage a position of inferior numbers and an inferior strategic position.  What could be better than to leverage two large powers to go at each other's throats to destroy their credibility in the world - America - and remove a weak Islamic secular government from power - Assad?

Then the terrorists, who have successfully infiltrated most if not all of the rebel groups - rise in the power vacuum when Assad is killed or set aside.  Worst case scenario the terrorists/rebels cannot hold power immediately but manage to abscond with all manner of dangerous weapons for resale on the black market or for use in terrorist operations...

Syrian Massacre: Will Russia Step Up To Stop Obama, End The Suffering, Offer Assad Asylum?

From Denny:  While the American public is polling as against military intervention in Syria, the Pentagon and President Obama are busy planning to do it anyway.  They never listen to the will of the people.  A good 60 percent of Americans want nothing to do with war in Syria.  Only a mere nine percent support going into Syria. Who are these people? Must be the Lobbyist Caucus.

Military intervention should be the business of the 21-member Arab League with Saudi Arabia perfectly capable of the necessary missile strikes (with over 300 combat aircraft) and other Middle East countries as this is their region of the world.  Even non-member Turkey which is nearby has over 1500 aircraft capable of intervening.  Why not send Israel who would relish the job?  They are the leading military might in the Middle East. That certainly would prove nothing if not interesting.

Why should struggling American taxpayers pay $1.2 million per cruise missile to end the Assad regime?  Syria is a member of the Arab League and the other members (Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Iraq and Egypt) should be reigning in Syria that possesses about 450 combat aircraft.  To give you perspective as to why the Pentagon loves to flex its military might every chance it gets:  America has about 15,000 aircraft.  The UK only has about 1400 aircraft.  It's all about The Boys and their Big Toys.  The ugly reality is these toys kill.

We all know the Pentagon and its war profiteers will not be content to stop at firing off just a few handy cruise missiles.  They and Scream For Blood Congress will demand the next step of committing troops into Syria and here we are at yet another Middle East war the American people never wanted but are forced to fight and pay for one more time.  President Assad is a dead man any way you look at it because his own people will kill him eventually.  We all know that said cruise missiles will also create a huge amount of unintended consequences - like killing more children than the chemical attack did...

Egypt In a Nutshell: Muslim Brotherhood Are Terrorists, Opponents To Peace

From Denny:  Violence erupts in Egypt.  The knee jerk reaction is the Pentagon howls about what they might be in jeopardy of losing.  The Pentagon never does get their priorities right.  So, President Obama hurriedly does the Pentagon's bidding and rushes out onto the international stage to make their case before he fully understands Egypt.

The State Department is collectively wringing their hands that Egypt might become another Syria with years of civil war on the horizon.  And the rest of the world is shaking their head at the inept policies coming out of the American government that seems to be rudderless in addition to clueless.

Here are the principle players in this international drama:  the Muslim Brotherhood, the people of Egypt who want a secular government and peace with their neighbors, the Pentagon and Big Business defense contractors.

Here is Egypt's current situation in a nutshell summary:

Daily Show Video, NSA Mess Deepens: No-Deliver Obama Chooses Insider Only for NSA Review

John Oliver HyperLoop video.

From Denny:  Can it look any worse that President Obama, Congress and the NSA are hiding something?  First, Obama announced that DNI Clapper would be in charge of choosing the so-called "independent" NSA Review Board of "outsiders."  There was a huge fuss from outside watchdogs and the press so Obama changed his tactic to appear as if he is actually impartial.

He decided not to have your creepy uncle in charge of picking the usual suspects to provide an echo chamber and a predictable outcome report for this White House.  Instead, Obama decided your youngest sister would be in charge of the "independent" review by "outsiders."  He knows he can control what she thinks and says because he is the Big Brother.  The White House Shell Game advances yet one more move, hoping to confuse the public who really are accurately watching where the pea is hiding...

Hey, DNI Clapper: Choose Blogger Denny Lyon To Head Bitch Slap Independent NSA Review

From Denny:  Looking for an echo chamber or a real assessment of the NSA surveillance programs? Then choose Denny Lyon as your man, er, woman to be your truth teller because God knows you all need one desperately.  After all the NSA has been spying on Americans since 1949 and the start of The Cold War.  That's right; it all started with reading every telegram that was sent out or received into America.  The illusion of privacy in our life time is just that: an illusion.

Can you believe this cover-up travesty?  President Obama leaves, well, runs away for holiday before anyone catches on, dumping like a huge turd a big announcement of how he is bringing in "outside" experts to take a look at the NSA surveillance.  These so-called "outsiders" are supposed to determine if the NSA is actually violating any privacy or civil rights, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.  Who believes this crap?  Apparently, the only true believers live in the White House and the NSA because none of the press is falling for it...

Daily Show Comic John Oliver Interviews Sen. Gillibrand: Fight To Fix Military Sexual Abuse And More

4 videos.
From Denny:  Did you know that the Daily Show's comic, John Oliver, is an American citizen?  Did you know his wife is career military?

You can easily guess who it was who suggested he interview Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand in her efforts to curb the Pentagon's so-called leadership values, refusing to give up even an ounce of command authority no matter how wide-sweeping and perverted is their corruption.  But then, that's the point, isn't it, to be able to have the authority necessary to cover-up that corruption and law-breaking.

In short, the Pentagon wants to do what they want, when they want and how they want without any real oversight or any consequences.  It's obvious those in Congress who should be exercising oversight are too busy with their fund-raising and insider trading to take the time to hold the Pentagon's feet to the fire and get those sexual assault and rape cases properly prosecuted.

That attitude has resulted in a rape culture that is at epidemic proportions in the U.S. military.  While it's clear it's acceptable to the highest levels of the military command, like Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Dempsey, it isn't acceptable or palatable to the rest of the country or women in general.

Or, as Sen. Gillibrand said, "What control? It's clear the command structure does not have true control or there would not be 26,000 sexual assaults on women AND men in just one year."  All Gillibrand is trying to do is create an objective review process for sexual assault and rape cases.  Yet the Pentagon fights it.

Check out the great discussion between John Oliver and Sen. Gillibrand.  Just to show you how screwed up and perverted is this military culture is a military judge actually went so far as to complain that when President Obama said "those guilty of sexual assault should actually be found guilty" was an overt and unlawful influence.

She also discusses Big Banks, the revolving door of politics and financial disclosures for campaigns.  Sen. Gillibrand is an attorney who specialized in securities.  Hmmm... will she pair up with Sen. Warren and help break up the Big Banks and spank Wall Street, slapping them in jail?  Stay tuned for updates.  Now check out the video clips of a great interview...

Dennys Funny Quotes: Viral Video: Huge To Go Order As Funny Bear Makes His Getaway With Yummy Garbage Dumpster

Dennys Funny Quotes: Viral Video: Huge To Go Order As Funny Bear Makes His Getaway With Yummy Garbage Dumpster: From Denny:  Bears.  What are you gonna do with them?  They have garbage gourmet tastes.  Especially this enterprising guy at a Colorado Springs, Colorado German restaurant.  What was a restaurant to do but film the bear naked thief in case they had to take him to court?

Late-night snacking is a favorite with bears and this bear was notably out for the big score.  He decided he wanted to keep snacking later in the day at his den so he hit on the idea of stealing the dumpster for an all day take away picnic lunch...

Satire: Daft Punk Disses Colbert, Teaches America How to Fight Back NSA Big Brother

3 funny Colbert videos.
From Denny:  Hey, America, take a page from Colbert's book of what to do when President Obama and Congress break their promises to you and cancel.  Democracy got shipped overseas because of low wages and tax breaks, good jobs never to be seen again as Obama waved a tepid goodbye.  Health insurance costs skyrocketed under the much touted savior ObamaCare without any regulations from the President to keep costs down low enough that minimum wage workers or the sinking middle class can afford it.  

Is the New Police State in America getting you down?  Tired of stop and frisk?  Tired of anal police probes when stopped on the highway for possibly absolutely nothing but a pervvy desire to bully?  Fed up with your DNA taken without a search warrant for a speeding ticket?

Disgusted with the pervvy NSA viewing all your texts, photographs and who knows what else when they get into your home computer?  Follow Stephen Colbert's example and dance all over the faces of the folks that dissed you.  After all, Colbert can't sue the summer megastars French electro-pop group, Daft Punk, that agreed to appear on Colbert for the Song of the Century performance and interview.

You see, Daft Punk was to "surprise" appear on the MTV Video Music Awards too, a conflict with The Colbert Report to which they made a previous commitment.  Guess what; MTV owns Comedy Central and The Colbert Report.  We all know what Colbert says to anyone who pulls rank on him, "You aren't the boss of me!" and said it to his MTV bosses.  Can't sue when you are the injured party?  What can a person do?...

Russia Steps Up: Gifts Snowden Asylum AND Whistleblower Status

Edward Snowden, Hong Kong, June 2013/Guardian

From Denny:  Russian President Putin surprised the world today and thoroughly infuriated the American government.

He stepped up, courageously smacking Obama in the face, and handed Snowden the gift of a life time: asylum from interrogation, torture and the death penalty in America.

What Putin also handed Snowden was standing in the court of international opinion, indirectly declaring Snowden a whistleblower instead of a traitor to his country.  Putin one, Obama definitely zero.  Other countries will follow suit and offer asylum as well within a few weeks because none of them were too thrilled at how shabbily Obama treated them...
