Time out? It was a deranged "attack" (which seemed more dyslexic than dangerous) that anyone with the least bit of hide should be able to laugh off.

All right. I'm done baiting you, Alex. Seriously, go through this person's history and tell me it wasn't just a typo. You got such a fucking persecution complex man.
posted by SeizeTheDay at 6:54 PM on October 5, 2005


No no no! Iw wasn't an accident - it was a conspiracy!!!!! don't you see:

America has been reacting with overwhelming revulsion over the past two days to the Supreme Court's decision that local governments can force property owners to sell out and make way for private economic development when officials decide it would benefit the public, even if the property is not blighted, and the new project's success is not guaranteed.

However, shocking details that cast this entire farce in its true light have flown under the radar of mainstream media reports.

Those details came to the fore today during an interview on The Alex Jones Show, nationally syndicated on the Genesis Communications Radio Network, on which Michael Cristofaro, one of the New London Connecticut homeowners fighting the unconstitutional decision, appeared as a guest.

Cristofaro's family have lived in New London for forty two years and the city had already previously seized his first home by imminent domain in 1971.

Cristofaro related a series of actions by local government officials and their hired New London Development Corporation thugs that amount to nothing less than outright intimidation, harassment and extortion.

These include:

- An insulting offer of $60,000 from the government on a home worth $215,000. The government would condemn the house years in advance then offer a pittance for it.

- Unannounced visits to Cristofaro's elderly parent's home demanding they sign a contract to hand over their property.

- Intimidating and harassing phone calls at all hours of the day.

- Parking bulldozers and wrecking balls outside the houses pointing at the property with threats of "your house is next."

- Revving the engines of the bulldozers outside the houses in the early morning hours of the morning. Just picture that for a second, revving bulldozers while threatening old people to sign papers handing over their home.

Several foreign news reports stated that at 11:20 the Army were dispatched onto the streets of London. If this actually happened, were we under martial law? and why were the British people not informed. I have not heard or seen any eyewitness accounts stating the presence of soldiers on the streets, but no one is denying it occurred either.

-In early 2001, the Baltimore Sun and ABC News reported on a newly-declassified operation code-named Northwoods, where the Joint Chiefs of Staff proposed hijacking jets by remote control and crashing them, bombing DC, committing sniper attacks in Miami and DC, having the CIA attack the Guantanamo Bay Marine Corps base with mortars, and how to blame all of this terrorism on Cuba and the Soviet Union, giving the Pentagon the pretext to start World War III.

The plan was green-lighted all the way up to President Kennedy who vetoed the plan. The bottom line is that the US government planned to terrorize its own cities as a pretext for war.



- Cristofaro's mother becoming distraught and suffering a heart attack after being served with condemnation papers that said she no longer owned her property and had ninety days to leave.

- A death bed plea from a 93-year-old resident begging "what about my house, what about my house?" The man had been living in his home for 80 years. The contractors would park construction vehicles on his property, make his house literally shake and would, Waco-style, shine bright floodlights into his home as his blind wife cowered in fear.

- A threat to charge residents back rent if they lost the case, effectively meaning the homeowners will have to pay the city to be kicked out of their own homes. One resident, William von Winkle (pictured above), would owe the city $200,000 in back rent.

A consultancy agency with government and police connections was running an exercise for an unnamed company that revolved around the London Underground being bombed at the exact same times and locations as happened in real life on the morning of July 7th.

On a BBC Radio 5 interview that aired on the evening of the 7th, the host interviewed Peter Power, Managing Director of Visor Consultants, which bills itself as a 'crisis management' advice company, better known to you and I as a PR firm.

Peter Power was a former Scotland Yard official, working at one time with the Anti Terrorist Branch.

Power told the host that at the exact same time that the London bombings were taking place, his company was running a 1,000 person strong exercise which drilled the London Underground being bombed at the exact same locations, at the exact same times, as happened in real life.

- When the Supreme Court decision was made on Thursday, the city had police cruisers and a fire truck casing the neighborhood because they feared the residents would riot. "What were they planning on doing? Hosing us down?" stated Cristofaro.

The first inconsistency to emerge, and to date the most compelling, is that of advance warning and prior knowledge. The police and the government have said unequivocally that there was no advance warning or indicative intelligence and that the attacks came "out of the blue". Yet early AP and Israeli radio reports clearly stated that Scotland Yard had given warning to the Israeli Embassy in London that an attack was imminent BEFORE any explosions had taken place.

Listening to many Federal Agents (whether they be IRS, ATF, FBI or any other agency), those of us who are angry at their abuse of power, their contempt for the Constitution (most of these agencies have no Constitutional authority to operate) or their ungrateful attitudes towards we the taxpayers who fund their illegal activities apparently are kooks or just angry little people. Too many of them have apparently operated all their adult lives within a police state as the privileged authoritarians wielding power with little if any accountability. Accountability to the Federal Government means that if a citizen actually proves his or her case for having been abused, they will be paid off with taxpayer dollars; the individuals responsible for the abuse will most likely be promoted to the next highest level of incompetence.



This is a precedent setting case for national gun confiscation. This is a clear declaration of war by the Federal Government against the American people. This is exactly how Lexington and Concord started the Revolutionary War in 1775.”

– Alex Jones

The federal government has been chomping at the bit for decades to disarm the American people, and now an amalgamation of state and local police led by the BATF are having their deepest desire fulfilled in New Orleans.

Major newspapers are reporting that in middle-class neighborhoods undamaged by floodwaters paramilitary police are going door-to-door demanding citizens’ firearms.

The New York Times even admitted that this is so the citizenry cannot resist when they are physically forced to leave their homes.

Most of the residents are contentious nurses and power plant employees who are currently working in key areas of infrastructure. Others refuse to leave because early on they were told they would have to break up their families to do so. Still more refuse to leave and give up beloved family pets.

Hold outs, many of whom have a year’s supply of food and water filters, tell the police, “We’re the people who stopped the looters when you guys were nowhere to be seen in the first six days.”

So the Federal Government does a horrible job delivering food and water to people they told to go to the Superdome, and now, almost two weeks later, they say the city is under their control. Their main mission: going door-to-door and confiscating American citizens’ lawfully owned firearms. This is treason. This is sedition against the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and our way of life.

Alex Jones appeared on Coast to Coast AM to discuss this story and he made it clear that we were simply reporting on issues that others had raised, we were not the source of the story and our aim was twofold. One, to ascertain how accurate the story was and two to head off any possibility of this drill becoming live, by simply giving the story attention we had already achieved the second aim.

I have been to over 10 urban warfare training drills where the military and the police work together. The national news always reports that it’s disaster relief training, when the truth is that they greedily train to subdue peaceful populations, disarm them and break up families.

It is now time for all governments who still operate outside of the control of the Globalists to come forward and join humanity in unveiling the real terrorists who are attempting to deform the world into a prison planet.

The message is clear, if you do not surrender all national sovereignty and control to the new world order, you will be targeted for elimination. They are coming for you. Sitting back and hoping it never comes to fruition is merely delaying the inevitable. The only hope your country and its future generations have will be protected by you standing up in unified opposition to the Globalists and helping to expose their state terror paradigm.

It is better to die on your feet than live on your knees.

This is a beacon call to all government officials in every sector of the command structure. You will be the first ones to be fed into the meat grinder when the bell tolls. They have no compassion, no loyalty towards you. You are safer out here in the light with the rest of us than skulking around in the dark continually seeking justification for your ignorance and obliviousness.

While the threat of terrorists attacking the US is regularly one of the top news headlines on a daily basis, real terror that has already claimed the lives of 600 people this year is being routinely ignored or downplayed by the mainstream media.

Mexican drug commando organization los Zetas has been carrying out kidnappings of American citizens and politically motivated assassinations which have stretched from the border town of Nuevo Laredo through to Dallas, Houston and San Antonio all the way to Nashville, Tenn., and Atlanta, Ga.

If Al-Qaeda had infiltrated the US and carried out hundreds of assassinations and kidnappings including those of FBI and DEA agents as well as police chiefs, do you think the media would be interested? Of course they would and yet this very scenario is being played out with scant coverage in local newspapers and the occasional wire blurb.

A February 2005 wire report describes just two of the incidents that have claimed the lives of over a hundred people just in the last month.

"Federal and Dallas authorities have blamed the following incidents on the Zetas: At 1:20 a.m. on Dec. 5, a gunman stepped out of a red sports car with a semi-automatic weapon and opened fire on three suspected drug traffickers as they played pool in the open garage of a home in the 5100 block of Mimi Court in Oak Cliff. Christian Alejandro Meza, 26, alias Juan Antonio Ortega, a parolee from Wichita, Kan., who was wanted on weapons charges, died of multiple wounds to the abdomen. Two other men were severely wounded and are being held on drug charges."

Don't assume motivations just to make yourself feel better. I can speak for what's in people's heads, but my comments were basically telling him to merely consider the source and blow it off (and, yeah, I should listen to my own advice more often). I don't think that's taunting.

I do have an agenda. It's "quit being an asshole".

Bullshit. One complaint is not "constant whining".

Is that what happened to quonsar? I was traveling for several weeks and, when I came back, he was gone from MeFi. Kinda wondered what had happened.

Quonsar still posts mecha.

Not sure what his or her problem is, but whoever that sock puppet belongs to, not cool.

Yeah, whatever "poltroon"

Dude just doesn't get it and keeps posting in this thread. Hiiilarious.

I urge you to keep passionately defending your position here, Alex. I'll be back in a minute with some more popcorn.

Alex, buddy, we've been through a lot together. And I want to impart something, man to man—it's time to step away from the 'puter. This won't end well. No more self-pity, no more drama, no more persecution paranoia. Just step away and go make some music. Seriously. That, you're good at.

I changed my behavior

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Folks, at this point it's like making fun of the village idiot who has befoulded himself and does not realize it. Eventually, it stops being funny and just becomes kind of sad.

Let it go.
