Last month, President Obama placed more stringent sanctions on Iran’s oil sales and financial transactions. And in the next breath, he claimed that because Iran is supposedly developing a nuclear weapon, Obama will “once again reaffirming [the US government’s] commitment to hold the Iranian government accountable for its actions.”
While Israel is threatening to attack Iran pre-emptively to “knock out” nuclear facilities, Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli Prime Minister asserts that “all the sanctions and diplomacy so far have not set back the Iranian (nuclear) program by one iota And that’s why I believe that we need a strong and credible military threat coupled with the sanctions to have a chance to change that situation.”
Sanctions placed against Iran are directed at their economy and value of their currency because Iran has been using gold instead of the US dollar to trade with other nations for their oil.
Obama’s latest round of sanctions, by executive order, is aimed at preventing “payment mechanisms for the purchase of Iranian oil to circumvent existing sanctions.” By targeting specific banks, Bank of Kunlun of China and Elaf Islamic Bank of Iraq, Obama wants to make sure “transactions worth millions of dollars on behalf of Iranian banks that are subject to sanctions for their links to Iran’s illicit proliferation activities.”
Obama warned that the US will “expose any financial institution, no matter where they are located, that allows the increasingly desperate Iranian regime to retain access to the international financial system.”
Working for the banking Elite, Obama has made his position clear. He is using the might of the US military to stop Iran from further devaluation of the US dollar; and now threatening all other financial institutions and nations that deal with Iran or facilitate payment in any currency other than the US dollar.

Members of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) are not just tied to al-Qaeda, the CIA-funded fake Islamic terrorist group, they ARE al-Qaeda. In a video of members of the FSA, these men are brandishing AK-47s provided to them by the CIA and have al-Qaeda flags flying in the background.
Al-Qaeda has been used by the US government in insurgent recruitment and in destabilizing Middle Eastern governments. The new recruits, being trained by the CIA in Turkey, then being allocated to the FSA and being used to destroy the Syrian government are directly tied to al-Qaeda. In the mainstream media, al-Qaeda is still touted as a separate terrorist organization with no ties to the US government.
Tayyip Erdogan, the Turkish Prime Minister, is now decrying that his involvement in assisting the CIA has created a backlash of violence in his own country and compromised their national security.
Erdogan is reluctant to continue to cooperate with CIA training facilities that create more “troops” for the FSA who are released into Syria through the Turkish border. The further involvement of Turkey in attempting to “handover Assad” to the US government through the use of fake terrorist organizations is causing a Kurdish outcry while military training camps are turning out “a good number of Kurds” who have been taught how to covertly support the US and Israel movement toward forced regime change in Syria.

Last week, the delegates who attended the Arms Trade Treaty Conference (ATT) reportedly did not come to a consensus to ratify the ATT, but rather will come back to the issue later this year.
Further talks will likely take place at a UN General Assembly (UNGA) meeting wherein 192 nations could achieve the 2/3rd majority vote for ratification of the ATT.
According to the British delegation: “We feel that we could have agreed (a treaty). It is disappointing that more time is needed. But an arms-trade treaty is coming – not today – but soon. We’ve taken a big step forward.”
Although activists in support of a convention for global gun control advocated the need to prevent illicit trade of guns into conflicted zones, such as in Syria, those same activists blamed the US and Russia for causing a stalemate during the negotiations process.
Victoria Nuland, US Ambassador to the UN released a statement on the US State Department website wherein it was admitted that “the illicit trafficking of conventional arms is an important national security concern for the United States.”
The US has committed to an ATT that works towards a contribution “to international security, protect the sovereign right of states to conduct legitimate arms trade, and meet the objectives and concerns that we have been articulating throughout the negotiation” and the US government believes that the ATT “will make a valuable contribution to global security by helping to stem illicit arms transfers, and we will continue to look for ways for the international community to work together to improve the international arms transfer regime so that weapons aren’t transferred to people who would abuse them.”
The stance of the US government, in rejecting signature of the ATT over the trafficking of illicit arms directs the purpose of the CIA and Obama administration’s involvement in arming terrorist groups in order to facilitate foreign policy objectives in the Middle East with regard to the current situation in Syria and ultimately Iran.
Of recent, the Obama administration is focusing on increasing proliferation of arms, intelligence and training to the Free Syrian Army and other oppositional factions to facilitate a forced regime change in Syria.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) “is a key trade initiative” that the Obama administration claims is “seeking to support jobs for American workers by boosting American exports to the dynamic Asia-Pacific region, promote manufacturing, innovation, and entrepreneurship, and at the same time, reflect in the agreement important values on key issues such as worker rights and the environment.”
However, the agenda of the TPP is a securitization of customs and border patrol services, telecommunications, corporate competition policy that directly effects immigration, corporate investments, and the addition of intellectual property rights with focus on copyright limitations.
The TPP, held in secret, is in actuality a multi-national trade agreement that seeks to extend intellectual property rights across the globe; creating an international enforcement scheme.
In a White House statement , Obama seeks to incorporate America with Canada and the other TPP countries in a “next-generation regional agreement that liberalizes trade and investment.” The press release explains that TPP will build upon “the commitments of NAFTA.”
The TPP defines intellectual property as:
• Geopolitical indicators
The leaked document drafted as the US TPP Intellectual Property Rights Chapter clearly states that negotiators for Obama are actively pushing for the adaptation of copyright measures that further restrict that is outlined in the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) and other similar international treaties.
There is an initiative to control global IP enforcement by the UN under signatory treaty wherein nations will be mandated to enact domestic laws that have been worded to reflect the provisions in the TPP agreement.

The UN International Arms Trade Treaty Conference (ATT) is wrapping up in New York and their final draft is completed .
In 2009, Hillary Clinton, US Secretary of State, proudly announced that the Obama administration was in full support of the ATT. It was the intention of the US government to assist the UN in implementing and establishing “common international standards for the import, export, and transfer of conventional arms to help prevent the acquisition of arms by terrorists, criminals, and those who violate human rights or are subject to UN arms embargoes.”
Clinton stated that “the United States is prepared to work hard for a strong international standard” concerning global gun control. “The United States is committed to actively pursuing a strong and robust treaty that contains the highest possible, legally binding standards for the international transfer of conventional weapons.”
In 2010, the US began talks with the UN regarding the initial drafting of the ATT.
With perfect globalist rhetoric , the UN claims that it is “not pursuing a global treaty to ban gun ownership by civilians.” But rather a “tightening controls over the international import, export and transfers of conventional arms, because without such controls it is easier for weapons to be diverted from the legal trade into the illegal market, and into the hands of terrorists, drug traffickers and criminal cartels.”

The Israeli government is bracing for an attack from Iran during the 2012 Olympic Games being held in London, England. The supposition, although without factual backing, is agreed to be a possibility by politicians, diplomats, security officials and organizing committee personnel.
Israeli alarmists are seeking to frame Iran to justify a future military strike by claim that England is within missile range from Iranian posts. UK officials have reportedly shown their apprehension over the possibility that Iran could be planning an attack.
An Israeli special team has released a number of steps to be taken in response to such an attack. They have prepared a special command center, secret safe houses for foreign leaders and emergency evacuation routes for dignitaries.
British police have been given these recommendations and focused on practicing for mass protests should war break out.
The UK government has charged thousands of employees to patrol their borders; which are now threatened by strikes due to massive shortage of private security staff.

In a sold-out theater, showing the new Batman film “Dark Knight Rises”, an anonymous gunman entered in a gas mask, threw two gas canisters into the crowd and opened fire with an assault rifle, shotgun and a .40 caliber Glock pistol. The result: 12 people dead and 59 injured. The mainstream media is hailing this unprovoked assault as “one of the deadliest mass shootings in recent US history”.
Tayler Trujillo, who was in the audience, remembers: “He didn’t say anything. He kicked the door open with his foot and held it open with his foot and he threw something and it landed in the row in front of me. Then it, like, went off — kind of like a firework — and gas filled the room. All you heard was ‘Get down! Get down! I felt like I couldn’t breathe, my eyes were really super watery. And then shots just started being fired, so many, and it stopped for a second, and everybody was, like ‘Go! Go! Go!’ but then he started to fire again and then I had to go back down. Honestly, I just started praying. I thought I was going to die.”
The gunman wore complete SWAT team gear (including a tactical armored vest, throat protector, groin protector, a gas mask and a ballistic helmet) and fired with a steady and seemingly trained hand, as witness Jennifer Seeger recalled. “Every few seconds it was just boom, boom, boom,” Seeger said. “He would reload and shoot and anyone who would try to leave would just get killed.”
The suspect has been identified as James Holmes, a 24 year old, quiet, anti-social medical school dropout from the University of Colorado.
Police in Denver claim to have traced James’ weapon purchase of a Remington shotgun and a Glock handgun to a Bass Pro Shop in Denver. A second Glock is supposed to have been procured at Gander Mountain store in Aurora, Colorado.
Law enforcement in Denver are claiming that James’ apartment was “booby trapped” with potential explosives and had to evacuate surrounding residents in adjacent buildings. Bomb technicians were brought to the scene to decipher how to disarm “flammable material”. Dan Oates, Aurora police chief, asserts that James’ apartment interior was fairly disturbing, containing “devices that look to be sophisticated”.
The propaganda building around the shooter is simply to support the coming attacks on the 2nd Amendment in conjunction with the UN’s agenda of global gun control.

The global Elite’s puppets are beginning to show their true alliances and rat out each other in an obvious move to find some sort of false sense of security.
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann recently accused Huma Abedin, aide to Hillary Clinton US Secretary of State, as being an infiltrated spy for the Muslim Brotherhood (MB). Bachmann says that the US government has been compromised by the MB and Abedin is working for “America’s demise”.
Bachmann pointed out that Abedin has “routine access to [Clinton] and policymaking.”
While her peers have been denouncing her claims, Bachmann asserts that her investigations into federal agencies has turned up conclusions that there is an obvious influence over intelligence operations with regard to foreign policy by the MB within the US government.
Abedin, who is of Pakistani decent, is married to House Representative Anthony Weiner who is Jewish. Weiner is aself-proclaimed Zionist , as he proudly stated: “Support for Israel was always a very big focus in my household growing up. I am a Zionist.”

A recent study by alarmist Philip W. Mote, director of the Oregon Climate Change Research Institute at Oregon State University claims that global warming is 20 times more likely the cause of last year’s heat wave in Texas which was directly causational to the overwhelming emissions of CO2 into the atmosphere.
The study, which covered the 2011 weather events , was rushed to be ready for publication by February of 2012.
The study entitled, “Did human influence on climate make the 2011 Texas drought more probable?” surmised that even though it was probable that the drought was responsible for the heat wave, Mote decided to interject that it was more probable that human influence was the ultimate cause of the extreme temperatures.
Mote is convinced that while scientists are not 100% sure that human influence is an encompassing cause of “extreme events” and they are not without doubt about the response the biosphere has to “the stuff we’re putting into the atmosphere”, nevertheless, “We are, in a sense, setting up our descendants for a set of weather events that may cause varying degrees of harm. And the less greenhouse gases we put into the atmosphere, the less harmful those events will be.”

The United Nations is polishing up a global Arms Transfer Treaty (ATT) this month in a New York convention that would create a global registry of private ownership of firearms. This treaty — which would also mandate creation of a national collection agency for those guns and is contrary to the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment — has the long-standing and enthusiastic backing of the Obama State Department, headed by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“Conventional arms transfers are a crucial national security concern for the United States, and we have always supported effective action to control the international transfer of arms,” Hillary Clinton noted as early as October 14, 2009. Clinton boasted that “the United States regularly engages other states to raise their standards and to prohibit the transfer or transshipment of capabilities to rogue states, terrorist groups, and groups seeking to unsettle regions.” Of course, that speech was delivered at the same time the Obama administration was transferring some 2,000 small arms to Mexican drug gangs in the “Fast and Furious” gun-walking scandal.
The State Department website nevertheless absurdly continues to boast that “The United States has in place an extensive and rigorous system of controls that most agree is the ‘gold standard’ of export controls for arms transfers.”
In view of such obviously false public statements, one may question the sincerity of Obama State Department promises about“redlines” to the UN ATT, which supposedly protect the Second Amendment: “The Second Amendment to the Constitution must be upheld. There will be no restrictions on civilian possession or trade of firearms otherwise permitted by law or protected by the U.S. Constitution. There will be no dilution or diminishing of sovereign control over issues involving the private acquisition, ownership, or possession of firearms, which must remain matters of domestic law.” The Obama State Department also promises “There will be no mandate for an international body to enforce an ATT.”
So America’s Second Amendment rights are safe, right?
