Not sure on who she is, but like the UK the neocons/libs
are consolidating their power cuz everything else is failing.

tptb don't even care how brazen the power grab is, it's
full speed ahead screw the torpedoes/icebergs.

Why should amerika have power to do this to oversea's
entities?

P.S. don't these resistance people think Pelosi etc.etc.
hate tRump but yet they give him this power, makes sense
right?

Nazi's, had it this good -sigh-

Well, as one famous UK Zionist said...
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Lights are Going Out, 1938

The Defence of Freedom and Peace"I avail myself with relief of the opportunity of speaking to the people of the United States. I do not know how long such liberties will be allowed. The stations of uncensored expression are closing down; the lights are going out; but there is still time for those to whom freedom and parliamentary government mean something, to consult together. Let me, then, speak in truth and earnestness while time remains...."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
and being a Zionist is OK, Einstein was a Zionist for example, but believed in peaceful coexistence, ... but if someone is a rabid foaming at the mouth Nazi terrorist too, I have a problem with that, some others might as well.

The conspirators of the 911 massacre were rabid foaming at the mouth Nazi terrorists without a doubt, and I am not sure they have all been caught yet... Maybe the troops being reassigned to Afghanistan by the USA democrats need to check out OBL's cave one more time to check there are no more hijackers still hiding out there.

Below is the collection of 47 "Special Envoy" jobs which already exist in the US government.

Trump has accomplished nothing useful during his time in office, so creating a ceremonial position filled by a political supporter makes it appear he's actually doing something useful for his donors.

The Trump administration has filled only 16 of these 47 envoy positions, including the position of "Holocaust Affairs Envoy", but Trumpo feels the need to throw another bone to his far-right-wing Jewish supporters, known popularly as "the Jewish Nazis". So the new "Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism" will likely be created. - congress.gov
.

Generally speaking creating an Envoy position is of little interest and significantly less important than choosing the species of national algae - a choice which could and would produce heated debate. Any member of Congress could take this off the consent calendar, but it's a nothing. Very infrequently these powerless Envoy positions are filled with someone of substance and vision who can actually effect useful change by making decision makers and the public aware of something they could do.

Lest you think this is just an American thing, in August, Vladimir Putin named film actor Steven Seagal as Special Envoy to the United States. - apnews.com Something very important to Steven Seagal, and no one else. Decades ago in a gym he was amused to discover I had no idea who he was, although I admitted I recognized his name when he told me. He's the perfect political donor to fill a useless Special Envoy posting.

As for Naomi Wolf, she's a woman with far too much time on her hands since Hillary Clinton lost the election so she apparently indulges herself creating YouTube videos that few other than yourself spend time watching. She's likely trying to create a new Google-based revenue stream for herself until she again finds something useful to do.

There seems to be a trend of reducing personal freedom, privacy, and freedom of expression, and personal rights over the last 20+ years. The USA has been leading the charge on this, and other countries including the UK have been following along.

It is of common concern.

Interesting to see if any of the Special Envoys recommend repealing this one...

there is a transcript too.

THE NDAA EXPLAINED IN 3 MINUTES
Regardless of where on this planet you live, and no matter what your nationality, the fact that the indefinite detention provisions of the NDAA are still on the books, should disturb you on a fundamental level. If not, give it three minutes.
July 04, 2014
The National Defense Authorization Act which was passed in 2012 and extended in 2013 and 2014, authorizes the U.S. military to arrest anyone, anywhere on the planet, to deny them access to a lawyer, and to detain them indefinitely without at trial. Furthermore the U.S. government claims the right to do all of this in secret.

The right to a fair trial, is gone, and without the right to a fair trial, you have no rights at all.

Of course some would argue that the NDAA only targets enemies of the United States, as if this somehow would make it ok, but that defense doesn’t hold water. (And by the way the NDAA does apply to U.S. citizens.)

It doesn’t matter who the law claims to target, and it doesn’t matter under what conditions the politicians claim it can be used. If you don’t have the right to a lawyer, and you don’t get your day in court, and if the government isn’t even obligated to disclose the fact that they dragged you from your house in the middle of the night, then who is going to make sure this isn’t abused? The soldiers? The politicians? Come on.

The power to make someone disappear without a trial is the power to make up any excuse that’s convenient. Evidence is only needed if you have to prove your case in court. That’s why we have courts.

The protections codified in the constitution were put there for a reason, but at this point it looks very much as if America is going to learn that lesson the hard way.

Land of the free right?

You can put your hand over your heart and celebrate something that no longer exists, or you can be honest with yourself.

That might be a bit painful. No one wants to believe that their kids are going to live under a military dictatorship. No one wants to see this coming. So most people put their head in the sand.

Those who don’t, always start with one question: What can we do?

The first thing you need to understand here is that our problem is psychological not material.You have the means to take your power. And you don’t need a set of specific instructions. You don’t need someone to hold your hand and explain your role. You don’t need someone to give you permission. What you need, is to turn off your tv, turn off your radio, put down the ipad, and ask yourself if you’re going to be able to look your grandchildren in the eyes and tell them honestly that you did everything in your power to turn this around.

Are you going to push this out of your mind because it’s uncomfortable, or are you going convert that discomfort into a driving force?

I’ll tell you this much: If that thought itches in the minds of enough people we’ll figure out a way to scratch it, and If that driven feeling is fully established in your heart, you’ll find a way to make it spread.

P.S. If you want a practical starting point to take action on the NDAA get in contact with the guys at People Against the NDAA. Dan Johnson (the founder) is one of those driven people who are making a difference.

I think you should start a trend of watching fewer useless videos and get out more.

You'll feel freer and you'll be freer.
.

If you're effective bringing in political donors, I'm sure the Labour Party will eventually find a Special Envoy position for you too! - How about becoming the British Special Envoy to YouTube?

Thank you for the advice. It is something I am planning to do.

Some of the b/s that is on the internet draws me in though, CO2 and Climate change is my latest fascination. I like how the Suns sunspot cycle is near the same time that Jupiter makes an orbit of the Sun. Just some interaction from another large planet like Saturn could explain a lot of Solar magnetic variation, which of course alters so many other things like cosmic ray flux that in turn can seed cloud cover thus changing the climate.

Just look at this...if you do the Google Search, and select the links, the IPCC has got zilch regarding Solar Activity effecting the Earths climate. Now I know a lot of people are not that sharp, even highly qualified climate scientists can be dumb as door stops at times, but to ignore solar output in a climate change investigation really does seem odd. It should be the first item on the menu. Only after exhaustively investigating the Sun's output characteristic, including electric & magnetic changes at all frequencies, should the sun be excluded as the primary candidate for climate change... imho.

press on any of the links shown in the google search shown below when this search comes up and well it's error code 404 more or less.

However, I have most of the information I need for some considerable time for study purposes, so yeah, maybe I need to take a break from all this stuff..



Here is a graph of the barycentre of the Sun vs. the rest of the planets over a large period of time. Saturn and Jupiter ("J" & "S") by far have the biggest impact.

I'm occasionally drawn to music videos of studio musicians and singers who have made up short-lived "bands".

The arts are fascinating, partly due to the fact I live in Los Angeles and interact with people in this industry. Autotune is the cutting edge conspiracy. Cher and others have used it as an artistic effect, while with others it's the only way they can sing.

Two studio musician "bands" Eastbound Expressway and Eria Fachin




This Charleston music-video produced by Milan-based Roberto Turatti and Miki Chieregato was lip-synched by an Italian model, Stefano Zandri who spoke little English, to a track recorded by American studio musician Tom Hooker. The producers chose an "English sounding" stage name for the model of Den Harrow, a joke based on the Italian word word for money, denaro.



The music producer Bobby Orland created band with interchangeable members like "The Flirts" still hugely popular in Mexico and Latin America. His work was also presented by short-lived "bands" like "Waterfront Home", "Barbie and the Kens" and worked with 'The Pet Shop Boys" and drag queen actor Divine.



Bobby Orlando's sound continues to greatly influence the current crop of international celebrity DJs, primarily through Latin America DJs who restructure existing music much as he did. Some even record new music with their own studio musicians, such as with Tel Aviv DJ Aron Abikzer recording Beth Sacks.

Being any "ist" is ok as long as coexistence is in play
but then again "isms" tend to exclude.

Those Nazi terrorists are definitely on the loose, is your
list any different than mine......which include the neocon/lib
WS/MIC/DC cabal being mostly run by those same Jews
who want to outlaw anti-semitism, hypocrisy knows no bounds.
