Obama’s Orwellian NDAA Info-Inequity — Now It’s Overtly Censoring Your News
/¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
NDAA bans Iran's Press TV from U.S. airwaves — Fight Back News — News And Views From The People's Struggle — March 2, 2013
 http://www.fightbacknews.org/2013/1/5/ndaa-bans-iran-s-press-tv-us-airwaves

Chicago, IL - The massive 2013 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), signed into law by President Obama Jan. 2, contains sanctions that effectivly ban Iran's popular station, Press TV [an Iranian TV news service], from U.S. airwaves or cable networks. Press TV is still available on the internet.

[....]

Iosbaker told Press TV, "In order for there to be an anti-war movement, there has to be alternative sources of information. And they're afraid of the anti-war movement because even in just the recent history, the anti-war movement has had consequences for the rulers here."

[....]

This is not the first such move by the U.S. The U.S. currently bans the popular and progressive Lebanese TV station Al-Manar. In 2008, a New York businessman was jailed for 'material support for terrorism' for including Al'Manar in satellite TV broadcast in the U.S.

U.S.-EU Trade Deal is the Foundation For a New Global Economic Order
In the coming months, you can expect the anti-corporate globalization movement on both sides of the Atlantic to mobilize against the U.S.-EU trade agreement. It is big business and financial institutions who are pushing this deregulation agenda which threatens health, environmental and food safety standards. Just like NAFTA, the proposed U.S.-EU trade deal is also likely to include an investor-state dispute process which would give corporations the right to challenge government policies that restrict their profits.

U.S. Senate Leaders Should Be Arrested and Charged With Treason
Despite a truth many Senators were willing to vote for Charles Hagel, as more than worthy choice for Secretary of Defense, our on-the-ground facts show us that we Americans are stuck with defense contractor and Israel-firster suck-ups like Lindsey Graham—and his whiny, albeit slick, style of political correctness—such as his recent show-trial that attempted to stigmatize anything that suggested criticism of Israel's right-wing agenda. Graham's strategy-driven klieg-light approach (clever as if concocted by a backroom weasel committee) had the chutzpah to ask Hagel during a recent Senate confirmation hearing, about some previous statements, with all the solemnity of some cranky Catholic cardinal pontificating what are assumed "mortal social sins", such assertions as : 1) "... the Jewish Lobby has a tendency to intimidate people up here... " 2) "... I'm not a Israeli Senator I'm a U.S. Senator... " and 3) "... this pressure makes us do dumb things at times... ".

dichotomy
Challenge to authority from a deeper truth
Not only is this a direct challenge to the authority of science and math, but it also provides these professional communities with solutions to their most difficult problems, yet the world is lost in its own concept of bullying, which is the only behavior which the current Empire allows within its social institutions, ie bullying to protect and serve the elite (selfish) interests.
Human-value is about knowledge and creativity, and humans seem to really be, in relation to the trap of materialism, a part of an abstract creative context.
This is a positive statement, it is constructive criticism (the solutions to math and science's most difficult problems are provided), it is not anger from a failed spirit, though the bullies (in their realm of selfish conceit) will interpret that way, but this is like saying Copernicus was a failure, which in its harsh reality of extreme social violence, one could say it was [where the US revolution, basing law on equality, was a weak attempt at opposing the extremely violent traditions of western thought, and trying to push the west into a civilized and reasoned state, allowing widely diverse creative expressions].

clear
New ideas are not allowed into the media especially in the authoritative peer-review journals which are based on authoritative dogmas similar to how the Catholic church excluded the heretical ideas of Copernicus, since they were ideas which challenged the rational authority of their day, of which the church was the gate-keeper.
Peer-review is equivalent to the authority of the Catholic church.
It is only free speech which allows ideas to be expressed, but most often the indy-medias do not sustain their claim to support free speech, and they waver based on the subtle notion of an expression of ideas must be from a "competent source," ie free speech is placed into the letter of the law, and only certain funded people have been shown to be "competent sources," ie sources which are easy to manipulate. However, the media itself is mostly about expressing lies and mis-information, so "why is it the gate-keeper?"
(only one indy-media actually supports free expression of ideas.
It is the expression of new ideas which the paymasters [of the wage-slaves] fear most, since the normal operation of the media is to supply mis-information and lies, it does not pass the test of "competent source," {so why believe the science of these paymasters, when there are many good alternative ideas about measurable descriptive constructs, for one such valid alternative construct of science read-on} yet the main stream media is the designated gate-keeper (designated by the owners of society).
It is a rigged game of logical-circles which support the rich and entrap the poor, ie where the poor are those who do not adequately help the rich get ever more rich.

Progressives Are Not Being Honest About Gun Control
Few things are more dangerous to a nation's citizenry than when its leaders decide to turn on their own or selected groupings of their own people (and Jewish people should especially understand this). Tyrannical governments should be feared far more than various types of weapons—especially when tyrants have no or few restrictions on their own selection of weapons. The progressive idea of the 2nd Amendment was the notion that common people can have the right to defend themselves against tyrannical governments (including and especially when their own choose to turn on them—which has happened all throughout history). THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT AND ITS CURRENT DYSFUNCTIONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH ISRAEL DOES NOT WARRANT TRUST ENOUGH FOR THE AMERICAN CITIZENRY TO HANDOVER GUNS TO THIS CORRUPTED STATUS QUO.
