Bill Clinton Supports Occupy Movement

Sunday, January 8th, 2012

Add one more prominent figure throwing their support behind the Occupy Wall Street movement. This time, it’s former US President Bill Clinton, who offered his praise to the people’s uprising while answering questions at a book signing.

“I think what they’re doing is great,” Clinton said. “Occupy Wall Street has done more in the short time they’ve been out there than I’ve been able to do in more than the last eleven years trying to draw attention to some of the same problems we have to address.”

Yes! Occupy has most definitely changed the discussion. But more than that, the movement represents a huge step in the process by which humankind will reclaim control over the planet. Finally, the people are starting to unite and fight back!

For thousands of years, a small but vocal segment of the population has chimed about the persistent, institutionalized injustices. But now, as these same messages get refined and encapsulated into an easily consumed form ready for the general public, the stage is set for what keeps our global establishment’s elites up at night: the thought that dissenting ideas will go viral.

Yet this is exactly what is already happening. Now, there will be no stopping humankind from tearing down the corrupt house of cards to build up a far more just global civilization.

Hillary Clinton OKs Attack on Humanitarian Flotilla

Saturday, June 25th, 2011

When it comes to attacking the humanitarian flotilla bound for Gaza, it’s green lights go, says US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Here’s what Clinton said in remarks at the State Department on 23 June:

We think that it’s not helpful for there to be flotillas that try to provoke actions by entering into Israeli waters and creating a situation in which the Israelis have the right to defend themselves.

Of course, few nations consider Gaza or its waters to be sovereign Israeli territory, not that it would stop the Israeli Defense Force. Last May, the IDF attacked a similar Gaza-bound flotilla in INTERNATIONAL WATERS, killing 9 activists and imprisoning hundreds more.

Apparently, it’s an act of war just to try and help the people being held captive by the State of Israel. So, regardless of whether or not the freedom flotilla enters Israeli space, they’re likely to meet with heavy resistance.

Best of luck to these brave freedom fighters. Here’s hoping for no casualties and that the world hears of their courage.
