“Before there was Benghazi, there was Extortion 17.”  These are the chilling opening words spoken by Billy Vaughn, the broken-hearted father of Navy SEAL Aaron Vaughn.  Aaron was one of 17 Navy SEALs, almost 30 American servicemen in total, killed when their antiquated Chinook helicopter was shot down during a raging battle in Afghanistan on August 6, 2011.  To have lost their sons in war is tragic enough; but as they discovered the very dubious circumstances surrounding the operation and the subsequent deception and cover-up by the military under the Obama administration, a truly gut-wrenching and highly suspicious picture emerged.  Several families of the fallen, military experts, elected representatives, and concerned others held a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington D.C. on May 9th, 2013.

Larry Klayman, founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, calls Extortion 17 “perhaps the biggest disaster since 9-11 as far as Naval and Special Ops operations.”  Before the dust had even settled on the operation that killed Osama bin Laden, President Obama and Vice President Biden revealed the classified identities of SEAL Team 6 and other servicemen; and as a result, these men “literally had targets on their backs.”  Three months later, these men and others were sent in on archaic outdated equipment without support and ambushed.

“We demand to know who sent our sons into hostile territory where evidence proves a shoot-down attempt had been in full force for weeks, in less than adequate, antiquated airframes documented to be in very poor condition,” declares Karen Vaughn, Aaron’s mother. “We also demand to know who made the call to mix conventional aircraft and forces with Special Warfare Operations.”

Charles Strange, father of fallen Navy SEAL Michael Strange, says, “Michael knew what he was getting into.  Michael knew what he was fighting for.  Michael knew that someday he might have to give the ultimate sacrifice.  But not like this.  To put my son and the most elite SEAL team in the world in a Chinook helicopter over an active battle that’s going on for three and a half hours?  Unacceptable! Somebody has to answer for this.”

Here are the heart-wrenching details of the labyrinth that is Extortion 17:

  • The servicemen were put in a slow helicopter that is never used for combat operations, built in the early 1960s and last retrofitted in 1985, with no answer as to who made that decision.
  • The helicopters they would normally have used and that they had trained with their entire careers were not available because under Obama, the pace of Special Operations aviation climbed from an average of 56 per month in 2009 to a break-neck 334 per month in 2011.
  • The mission was considered to be so dangerous that the decision had to be made from a commander out of theater.  Yet still it is not known, even after an investigation that yielded a 1200 page report, what commander made the call or why.
  • The Tangeen Valley in Afghanistan was known to be a hotbed of insurgent forces, and U.S. Intelligence knew that there were one hundred or more enemy forces gathering there that night intending to shoot down American forces.  As early as May 11, they knew that SEAL Team 6 was going to be targeted, but did not share this information with the appropriate people.
  • The flight manifest was changed at the last minute, removing seven Afghani security force members who had been slated to fly.  In fact, there is still some uncertainty as to who was on the flight.
  • The men were flown in unescorted and dropped into a battle that had already been going on for over three hours, without any suppressive fire support.
  • Even in the pitch black, General Colt told the families they could see two men on the rooftop.  “They call up the Afghan administration to find out at two o’clock in the morning what these guys are doing on the building,” Charles Strange explains.  “You know what they told them?  ‘They’re hanging crops.’” At 2am on a rooftop?
  • The Chinook was shot down by Afghanis who were waiting for it in the perfect position and at the perfect time to strike when the aircraft was its most vulnerable, during landing.
  • “Perhaps the most disturbing piece of evidence that Billy and I came across in our search for truth was uncovering the fact that the Afghan National Army, the Afghan National Police, and the Afghan Security Ministry have been and still are involved in the planning of every single stage of every single Special Operation that takes place in that country.  And yes, these plans include flight routes and landing zones,” says Karen Vaughn.
  • The “eye-in-the-sky” predator feed over the area was turned off.  It took the military ten minutes to figure out which aircraft had been shot down.
  • American forces were not permitted to take out the attackers.  The families were told that new Rules of Engagement dictated that we couldn’t shoot down any attacker even after being attacked because, as one high-ranking admiral put it to Billy Vaughn, “We want to win their hearts and minds.”  Karen says, “We were recently told by a Special Forces operator that under the current ROE’s if the enemy fires on you, then runs back behind a rock, when he pops his head up from behind the rock you’re not allowed to engage him unless you can verify that he has not laid his gun down.  In other words, you must be fired on twice now or your actions will be questioned by your government when you try to defend yourself or the lives of your teammates.”
  • To add desecration to injury, the standard ramp ceremony at Bagram Air Base was presided over by an imam who gave a prayer damning the fallen to hell before their remains were sent home.  No priest, pastor, or rabbi gave any prayer or said any words.  Klayman says, “The funeral that was held in Kabul where you couldn’t even mention the name of our lord and savior Jesus Christ, but yet a Muslim cleric gets up and damns these fallen heroes to hell as infidels.  Unbelievable that our military brass would allow this to happen!”  And whereas it is standard practice that all parents of the fallen are given a transcript from the military of that ceremony, the families of Extortion 17 were not.
  • In classified meetings, elected officials were lied to about Extortion 17 by top military brass.  The families were lied to by these and other military officials.  “When we were first visited by one of the highest level admirals in our nation [Admiral William McCraven] on January 4th…the most shocking thing we experienced is that he lied to us so continuously that if we had not studied our documentation and known the truth he would have made a mockery of everything our sons died to represent.  It got to be actually embarrassing.”
  • The families were told that the chopper’s “black box” was “blown away in the flood” and was supposedly never recovered.  A flood? “In Afghanistan?” Charles Strange asks, exasperated.
  • “They told me my son had to be cremated, everybody had to be cremated,” Charles says, weeping.  “I called the commander: ‘Why did you cremate my son?  My son didn’t want to be cremated!  I’ve got pictures of him.  When I asked for the autopsy report from Dover they sent me a disc with pictures.  He’s sitting there fighting! ‘Everybody was burned beyond recognition.’  No, everybody wasn’t burned beyond recognition!  Another lie!”
  • No Afghani officials were involved in the investigation of the shoot-down, even though they are involved in the planning of every mission and were consulted during the mission.
  • When asked how they assessed the crash, our military revealed that all sorts of support materialized.  They told the families, “We had 30 planes to assess the crash.  We had Black Hawks, we had Pathfinders, we had 140 men go in.”  Yet there had been no air or other support for the men as they flew in.

“As we searched we became tragically aware that perhaps the cruelest, most deceitful acts of this administration have been perpetrated against the very ones fighting and dying to protect and defend it,” Karen says.

Charles recalls the day Obama greeted the families at Dover where the remains of the fallen were brought home.  “He went to give me a hug and I whispered in his ear, ‘Mr. President, is there going to be a congressional inquiry?’ And Mr. President whispered in my ear, he said, ‘Mr. Strange, we’re gonna look into this very, very, very deep.’  Well, I haven’t heard nothing.”  It is now nearly two years since Extortion 17.

Watch the video of the press conference below, and please share it with others. Each unanswered question, each deception that was revealed, and each reckless – if not outright sinister – decision that was uncovered is a stab in the heart for these families.  They deserve answers.

But more, we should take each as a stab to our own hearts and demand those answers as if these sons were our very own.  Indeed, they are America’s brave sons.  If Benghazi and Extortion 17 are any indication, our servicemen today face just as much treachery from the Obama administration and our military under his command as from America’s enemies on the battlefields in faraway countries.  In Benghazi, our personnel’s pleas for support while under attack went deliberately unheeded; and then the truth was and continues to be covered up.  In Extortion 17, our servicemen were sent into a battle not to win, but to be deliberately sacrificed to our enemies.  These words of Karen’s should serve as a dire warning: “The hearts and minds of the enemy are more important to this government than my son’s blood.”

Doug Hamburger, father of fallen SEAL Patrick Hamburger, says, “It’s a shame that we have to ask for a congressional investigation to find out answers…We’re pleading with the American people to put the pressure on your congressmen and senators to make sure that that investigation does get started up and we do get some answers as to what was going on – not so much that we can do anything for our families or our boys.  But we want to make sure that our military is taken care of in the future.  We love our military…We want to make sure that their sons and daughters are protected and allowed to fight at the top of their abilities.”

These are more than just scandals; they are high treason.  Nothing like Benghazi or Extortion 17 has happened in America’s history, military or otherwise; but we’re seeing that atrocities like these are common for the Obama administration.  Treachery doesn’t begin to cover it.  This is a betrayal of the highest order.  It is a betrayal of our brave servicemen who gave everything for America, the very men who killed Osama bin Laden.  It is a betrayal of America’s sons and daughters fighting for her today, and of their families who raised these heroic warriors and who now survive them as parents should never survive their children.

In the words of Billy Vaughn, “We must change the hearts and minds of the leaders in Washington and the high-ups in the military, or we must see that they are removed.  Those responsible must be brought to justice.”

Senator warns of ‘astounding assault on Constitution’ by NSA

author-image

NSA

The FBI wants back doors to all communications equipment and software. The NSA is grabbing trillions of phone records of American citizens. And reporters’ research apparently is a subject of interest at the Department of Justice.

All of this and more has triggered a surge of renewed interest in a recent video by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., in which he declares that “1984,” the George Orwell novel about ultimate government disinformation, manipulation and control – is here.

Dystopian novels were just that, bad utopias,” he said, “but not practically possible. One could always sigh in relief that such surveillance, such invasion of privacy, was not technologically possible.

“Until now.

“Now we have the technology. Drones that measure less than an inch, weigh less than an ounce and hover noiselessly outside your bedroom window are not a dystopian future but today’s reality,” he said.

“The individual who feared ’1984′ when it was written in 1949 need now shout from the top of his or her lungs, for technology had made the unthinkable, thinkable,” said Paul.

What are the recent developments that prompted the interest?

The National Journal raised questions over confirmation that Verizon, which has more than 100 million Americans as customers, secretly has been handing over documentation of its telephone calls to the National Security Agency.

“Calibrating the appropriate level of outrage will probably occupy us for most of the day,” the report said.

WND reported that the FBI wants changes made in industry requirements so that the agency would possess a back door to all communications software and hardware.

The FBI has complained that its agents cannot always get a court order and obtain access to the communications they want.

And the Department of Justice’s pursuit of telephone records for reports – to the point of alleging that one prominent Fox News reporter possibly engaged in criminal activity – is now just one of the major scandals plaguing the Obama administration.

Paul cited the term “doublethink” from George Orwell’s novel that was so influential that government policies and actions considered oppressively invasive and a violation of rights are called “Orwellian.”

“The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war, the Ministry of Truth with lies, the Ministry of Love with torture and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation.”

That, Paul notes, was fiction. “It could never happen in America.”

But then he cites his own battle over provisions of the recent National Defense Authorization Act, which would allow indefinite detention of Americans without a trial on the whim of a president.

But another point proposed is one Paul believes even fewer Americans know about: The idea of indefinite detention even after a jury acquits a defendant.

It was late in the evening when the amendment was proposed and a voice vote sought.

A “flicker of rebellion” swept through his thought process, recalls Paul. They “wanted to limit [the right to] trial by jury by voice vote.”

So he questioned it.

“I was accused of obstructing proceedings.”

Other senators counseled him not to worry about – it would all get taken care of. All it did, they said, was confirm what current law already allowed.

He wasn’t reassured.

“If current law allows people to be found innocent by a jury and still be held indefinitely, shouldn’t we do something about it?” he wondered.

So he demanded a recorded vote on the amendment.

With a public record of senators’ votes, the amendment failed.

Regarding the NSA’s access to Verizon customer phone data, Paul said:

The National Security Agency’s seizure and surveillance of virtually all of Verizon’s phone customers is an astounding assault on the Constitution. After revelations that the Internal Revenue Service targeted political dissidents and the Department of Justice seized reporters’ phone records, it would appear that this administration has now sunk to a new low.

When Sen. Mike Lee and I offered an amendment that would attach Fourth Amendment protections to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act last year, it was defeated, and FISA was passed by an overwhelming majority of the Senate. At the time, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid remarked that FISA was “necessary to protect us from the evil in this world.”

The Bill of Rights was designed to protect us from evil, too, particularly that which always correlates with concentrated government power, and particularly executive power. If the president and Congress would obey the Fourth Amendment we all swore to uphold, this new shocking revelation that the government is now spying on citizens’ phone data en masse would never have happened.

The fight over the NDAA continues, with a number of states taking action to block its controversial sections 1021 and 1022 that allow for indefinite detainment of U.S. citizens without due process.

It has generated opposition ranging from former Al Gore consultant Naomi Wolf to Ronald Reagan Justice Department official Bruce Fein.

Under the law adopted by Democrats, “Journalists aren’t safe. Union leaders aren’t safe. Activists aren’t safe, Liberty is not safe,” said Wolf, an author of half a dozen books.

Among the states opposing it are Indiana, South Carolina, Virginia, Nevada and Michigan.

Groups including the Tenth Amendment Center, The Bill of Rights Defense Committee, The American Civil Liberties Union and Demand Progress have all been working since early 2012 to oppose the NDAA. And last year, federal District Judge Katherine B. Forrest ruled that Section 1021 was facially unconstitutional because it had the potential to violate the First Amendment.

A group of journalists and activists sued President Obama, Leon Panetta and a host of other government officials claiming that they were forced to curtail some of their reporting and activism due to fear of violating the NDAA. Among the individuals were Pulitzer Prize-winning former New York Times foreign correspondent Chris Hedges, MIT linguist Noam Chomsky and “Pentagon Papers” activist Daniel Ellsberg.

In the following interview, Hedges explains what has happened in the Hedges vs. Obama NDAA lawsuit to date, the next steps and what he sees in America’s future.

Hedges v obama

A campaign also has been announced by PANDA, or People Against the NDAA, to build a backlash against the Washington power grab.

Spokesman Dan Johnson said, “The goal of this operation is to stop the indefinite detention provisions of the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) in all 50 states across America by Dec. 31st, 2013.”

In her order, Forrest wrote, “The government put forth the qualified position that plaintiffs’ particular activities, as described at the hearing, if described accurately, if they were independent, and without more, would not subject plaintiffs to military detention under Section 1021.”

But she continued, “The government did not – and does not – generally agree or anywhere argue that activities protected by the First Amendment could not subject an individual to indefinite military detention under Section 1021.

“Here, the stakes get no higher: indefinite military detention – potential detention during a war on terrorism that is not expected to end in the foreseeable future, if ever. The Constitution requires specificity – and that specificity is absent from Section 1021,” the judge wrote.

Obama Forward SC 690x1024 If Your Hometown is on This List, Youre Screwed

In case you missed parts one and two of our series, we’re exploring what America will look like after a government collapse. Today, we turn our eyes toward the federal government itself.

First, you need to understand that some areas of the country – some states, some localities – will fare much better than others.

If your city or state is highly indebted, they’ll be forced to cut back on services. Look around your community. See more pot holes? Are the parks looking trashed? Is graffiti staying around longer?

It’s the result of deferred maintenance and already-installed austerity measures. For example, many police and fire departments have already seen major budget cuts.

This has already happened in financially fragile cities such as the bankrupt city of Stockton, California. In fact, Stockton is a good microcosm of the fallout from a government collapse. The AP describes the situation there:

Stockton has tried to restructure some debt by slashing employment, renegotiating labor contracts, and cutting health benefits for workers. Library and recreation funding have been halved, and the scaled-down Police Department only responds to emergencies in progress. The city crime rate is among the highest in the nation.

So after a collapse, don’t expect the government to give you the same service you’ve experienced in the past. Every unit of government will be affected, and the already-poor customer service is going to get even worse.

By the Numbers

It’s my belief that some unexpected event – an oil shock, a Lehman Brothers-type banking collapse, or a sovereign debt crisis – will trigger a monumental collapse in the not-too-distant future. It’s the inevitable result of 30-plus years of misguided economic decisions. Finally, all of our overspending and our mistaken ideas have left no room for error.

Just over 30 years ago, the U.S. national debt was less than $1 trillion. In those days, the total amount of all debt in the United States was only $2 trillion. Now the national debt is over $16 trillion, and our debts are collectively more than $56 trillion.

Let’s face it… This level of debt can’t possibly be paid by our sluggish economy.

That’s not all, either. Our power to grow wealth has been decimated, too. America’s share of global GDP has slumped from 31.8% in 2001 to 21.6% in 2011. Since 2001, the United States has lost more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities. Not just jobs… actual factories. Millions of good jobs have been shipped overseas, and they’ll likely never return.

Subhead

Right now, the Fed is working desperately to forestall the inevitable. But Ben Bernanke and company won’t be able to hold back the tidal wave of reality forever.

If the United States took radical, immediate corrective action, they might be able to forestall a total debacle. But I’m not optimistic.

On the bright side, the U.S. government actually takes in more revenue now than at any time in recorded history. If they just controlled spending, they could pay the bills. Here’s how it could work.

Currently, the federal government brings in $200 billion in revenues each and every month. If they prioritized spending, they could pay interest on the national debt of more or less $30 billion. Then, they could pay their liabilities to Social Security, which currently costs around $50 billion. Medicare and Medicaid cost another $50 billion. Active-duty military pay costs about $2.9 billion, and veterans’ benefits cost about $2.9 billion. A pay-as-you-go system would be tight, but it would work. Out would go Obamacare, the Department of Education, farm and green energy subsidies, and much more. But it would work.

A collapse is inevitable, and it’ll happen. The question everyone needs to ask is: will it happen in an orderly fashion, or after a complete and total economic collapse akin to the Soviet Union collapse in 1989? I know which one I’d prefer.

Will the Gun-Grabbers Create a No Buy List; Using Your Prescription Records?

Who decides if you are too crazy to have your second amendment rights protected?

by
PAULA BOLYARD

Could the Feds potentially use your prescription drug history to curtail your Second Amendment rights? In the wake of President Obama’s list of 23 executive orders — saying “If there’s even one thing that we can do to reduce this violence…” — the potential exists for the Department of Justice to use Federal drug databases to screen for “mental illnesses.”

While the idea may sound far-fetched, state and federal agencies already cooperate to share information about your history of prescription drug use, including the use of medications for “psychiatric disorders.” Your doctor, your pharmacist, and your local emergency room already know a lot more than you think they know about your prescription drug history if you take a drug on the Federal Controlled Substance list

It began in 2005 when President George W. Bush signed the National All Schedules Prescription Electronic Reporting Act (NASPER) into law to combat illegal prescription drug abuse, including doc-shopping and so-called “pill mills.” State authorities began compiling databases of individuals who use certain drugs most often abused. Those databases are now being linked on the federal level.

The Bureau of Justice Assistance, a division of the Department of Justice, now sponsors a website to assist states in linking cross-referenced prescription information to catch suspected drug abusers who cross state lines. According to the Alliance of States with Prescription Monitoring Programs, the sheer volume of data they collect is stunning. In the data section for my home state of Ohio, the site claims it compiled 21 million prescription records on 11.4 million citizens in 2008.

In 2011 the White House issued a report called Epidemic: Responding to America’s Prescription to America’s Prescription Drug Abuse Crisis which outlined the goals of the Obama administration in battling this problem:

“PDMPs [Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs] can and should serve a multitude of functions, including: assisting in patient care, providing early warning of drug abuse epidemics (especially when combined with other data), evaluating interventions, and investigating drug diversion and insurance fraud.” [emphasis added]

They set a goal to:

“Expand upon DOJ’s pilot efforts to build PDMP interoperability across state lines, including
leveraging state electronic health information exchange activities. Work to expand interstate
data sharing among PDMPs through the Prescription Drug Information Exchange (PMIX).”

In response, the Behavioral Health Coordinating Committee of the Department of Health and Human Services issued its own report, called An Action Plan for Improving Access to Prescription Drug Monitoring Program Through Health Information.

“The ambition is to provide clinicians and pharmacists with real-time information about patient’s prescription drug histories from the PDMPs, which can reduce the risk of opioid-related drug abuse and deaths. The Action Plan encourages collaboration across federal, state and local governments, State HIT [Health Information Technology] Coordinators, State PDMP Administrators, providers, pharmacists, health care professionals’ associations, and vendors to pilot ways to improve access to PDMP data through the use of HIT.”

Of course, this meshes nicely with the Affordable Care Act’s goals of standardizing electronic medical records.

What does any of this have to do with the gun-grabbing Feds? On Tuesday the New York State Assembly passed a controversial law restricting gun ownership, part of which included a mental illness section. The law “…will require mental health professionals, in the exercise of reasonable professional judgment, to report if an individual they are treating is likely to engage in conduct that will cause serious harm to him- or herself or others.”

While the NY bill gives a great deal of latitude to mental health professionals, at least it limits the provision to “mental health professionals.”

NY Bill video

President Obama’s executive order wish list includes several “mental health” points that could potentially work their way into the administrative policies of the unelected bureaucratic agencies that presently exercise unprecedented control over the lives of Americans:

1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.

2. Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system.

3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system.

4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.

16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.

17. Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities.

Is it completely absurd to envision an overreaching Department of Justice — via the Bureau of Justice Assistance — putting “at risk” Americans on a “no buy list” for guns, similar to the TSA’s “no fly list”? 

Shortly after the President’s announcement at the White House on Wednesday Wolf Blitzer told Rep. Steve Toth (R-TX) on CNN, “Right now you can be on a “no fly list.” You’re not allowed to board a plane and you can go to a gun show to buy a gun. Is there a contradiction?”

Hypothetically, would you be on the “no buy list”?

Perhaps you would be asked, “Do you now, or have you ever taken Xanax or Ativan for anxiety?” (of course, there’s no need to ask, the authorities already know).

If the answer is, “Yes,” you might make the “no buy list” because the side effects for those drugs can include thoughts of suicide, agitation, rage, and hostility. Or maybe you’re OK, but your teenager takes Adderall for attention deficit disorder. Perhaps the DOJ would justify confiscating your guns because the side effects of Adderall can be pretty serious: extreme nervousness, paranoid delusions, mood swings that include hostility and severe aggression. If you’re taking Ambien for your sleep problems you should probably just go to your nearest gun turn-in event, hand your guns over to authorities and take the gift card right now before Eric Holder shows up at your door. The gun-grabbers will have grave concerns about sleepwalking semi-automatic gun owners staging midnight raids on their refrigerators.

And technology is making it increasingly easier to track your prescription drug use. The NY Daily News reported this week that the city will be equipping “bait bottles” with GPS technology to track stolen OxyContin. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said, “We’re also asking industry researchers to explore the possibility of applying nanotechnology in such a way that individual ‘bait’ tablets could be tracked by GPS.”

Perhaps this all sounds like the stuff of the conspiracy theory crowd. But we live in an era when our president issues executive orders usurping his Constitutional authority with immunity. I heard an interview the other day with a hero of the conservative movement (and a hero of mine), Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), in which he said he also believes the president is usurping his Constitutional authority with some of these executive orders. What I didn’t hear him say is that he and his colleagues plan to do anything about it. Congress is one of our last stands for preserving the separation of powers — and our liberty, for that matter — and there is no apparent political will for that battle.

Anything seems possible in Obama’s brave, new second term. We cannot allow Obama to rush unimpeded into this flurry of executive orders that could potentially enable the government to grab guns from law-abiding citizens in an unlawful manner without due process. We must ask important questions about patient privacy and rights, the definition of mental illness, and also, who will have access to these expansive drug databases.

Michael Moore video

“How else do you explain two otherwise decent kids, very smart, no history of violence to other kids in the school….why them? Why did this happen? It’s an extremely legitimate question to pose and it demands an investigation.” — Michael Moore on the role of prescription drugs in the Columbine shootings.
