Just look at the conflicted expression in this poor man’s face. Executed yesterday in Libya by a mob, probably instigated by controlled elements, there is not one part of his face that coordinates with another.
His eyes are lying and confused, his chin and lips are clenched as if muzzled, and the stare and seeming resisted squint tells you he’s trying to look open when everything in his natural mind and body says to quit the charade and get the hell outta there.
His storied forehead tells another tale altogether; of a life of tension, worry and carefully dictated deception, level upon level.
And this picture is from a year ago while negotiating within Libya well before the US led NATO overthrow that led to all this destruction, death and chaos. Continue Reading
Lawyers for three protesters arrested on terrorist-related charges ahead of the Nato summit have accused police of entrapping them and encouraging an alleged bomb-making effort.
The three were arrested on Wednesday night when members of the Chicago police department battered their way into an apartment in the Bridgeport area of the city.
According to court documents released on Saturday, the three men considered targeting Barack Obama’s re-election headquarters and the home of Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel.
The Chicago police department said the men, described as self-proclaimed anarchists and members of the “Black Bloc” movement that has disrupted international gatherings in the past, were arrested on Wednesday and charged on Friday with conspiracy to commit terrorism, providing material support for terrorism and possession of an explosive incendiary device.
The three men charged were listed as Brian Church, 22, of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Jared Chase, 27, of Keene, New Hampshire, and Brent Betterly, 24, from Massachusetts.

This is a little unusual and unexpected. While the Occupy protests were systematically ignored by the corporo-sycophant media, this has appeared rather abruptly.
I don’t trust any of it, as they are always up to stuff. But pitting these brave demonstrators against the NATO Summit machinery amidst such militarization is something to take note of. And even they took note. For once.
Or most likely is this how they’re programming us with how to see it? Worth a healthy skeptical look at.
Here’s the article:
1000s protest the Chicago NATO summit
(CBS News) CHICAGO – Whatever NATO’s ultimate withdrawal timetable from Afghanistan is, it won’t be speedy enough for demonstrators outside the current summit in Chicago.
Thousands of protesters walked the sweltering streets of Chicago on Sunday to vent their opposition to NATO and the government leaders meeting just a few hundred yards away.
“We’re spending $2 billion a week killing people who are very far away and really haven’t don’t anything to us,” said protester Jeri Sparks…
The ranks of the more violence-prone participants had been thoroughly infiltrated by undercover officers days ago, including three arrested last week who prosecutors accused of conspiracy to commit terrorism. Continue Reading
Russia has threatened Nato with military strikes against in Poland and Romania if a missile defence radar and interceptors are deployed in Eastern Europe.
General Nikolai Makarov, Russia’s most senior military commander, warned Nato that if it proceeded with a controversial American missile defence system, force would be used against it.
“A decision to use destructive force pre-emptively will be taken if the situation worsens,” he said.
Gen Makarov has threatened to target Nato bases hosting an anti-missile system designed by the US to protect European allies against attack from states such as Iran.
He said that Russia would counter Nato deployment by stationing short-range Iskander missiles in the Russian Kaliningrad exclave near Poland, creating the worst military tensions since the Cold War.
“The deployment of new strike weapons in Russia’s south and northwest – including of Iskander systems in Kaliningrad – is one of our possible options for destroying the system’s European infrastructure,” he said. Continue Reading
I will keep this short as possible. A single nuclear weapon has “gone missing” as of last week, one of four missing but this one “more missing” than the others.
The Thames Valley Police, famous for their fictional representations in the Colin Dexter detective novels, detained a high ranking government security officer, department to remain unnamed, at the behest of what we are told is the Home Secretary.
Time we put a call in to Inspector Lewis? Morse, played by John Thaw, would never have allowed such a thing. John Thaw was always a favorite and his pub of choice, The Trout outside Oxford is a nice stop off, you can misplace a nuke, torture a spy, this time one of your own, and make it home with fish and chips. I do so love Britain.
Now, to put this is American English.
A nuclear weapon that wasn’t supposed to exist, a single 500 kiloton hydrogen bomb, one of four being tracked, was seen being loaded at the German port of Bemerhaven, Germany.
The groups assisting in what we were informed was a counter-terrorism surveillance operation were the American NSA, British MI 6, the Office of Naval Intelligence and the British Royal Navy. The “device” was loaded onto a Germany built “Dolphin” submarine and left the harbour doing 7.5 knots.
The submarine disappeared while being tracked by every sophisticated device NATO seems to be able to own or borrow. Continue Reading

End the Lie
Today the Unite States House of Representatives and Senate both passed their final versions of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2012, or H.R. 1540.
This represents the complete destruction of everything that America is supposed to stand for, the most essential of rights have been stripped away and we are left wondering what the traitors in Washington will do next.
It has become painfully clear that the true terrorists are not hiding in caves in Afghanistan shooting at NATO troops with rusted second-hand assault rifles, but instead wear $5,000 suits and stroll happily through the halls of power in the United States.
The House passed their final version of the NDAA with a massive majority of 283 to 136 and the Senate passed it with a vote of 86 to 13, once again proving that our so-called Representatives do not represent us in any way and in fact are traitorous criminals and enemies of freedom.
No longer do we need to fear our country being attacked by foreign forces hell bent on destroying the American way of life, as these forces can be found calling themselves our “Representatives” while living large on the backs of the American people.
The signing of the NDAA with the detention provisions – that is, sections 1031 and 1032 most importantly – intact represents the final nail in the coffin of our once Constitutional Republic.
I can honestly say that I previously thought that the PATRIOT Act would be the worst legislation I would ever see in my lifetime and quite unfortunately, I was wrong. Dead wrong. Continue Reading

Western security firms – a polite term for mercenary outfits – are cramming planes into Libya to make the country safe for an invasion of western capitalists, the real beneficiaries of NATO’s war. So frenzied is the crush of war capitalists and their hired gunmen seeking to cash in on the Libyan catastrophe, the New York Times tell us a $5 cab ride from Tripoli’s airport to downtown hotels now costs $800. The head of the U.S.-Arab Chamber of Commerce calls it a “gold rush,” as officials of the government established by force of NATO airpower lay out the red carpet for the foreign hordes. Libya’s nominal new rulers in the Transitional National Council are in a rush to sell off the nation’s birthright before they’ve even got it in their hands.
The huge influx of big, burley western mercenaries is most ironic, since the so-called rebels’ principal call to arms was that Moammar Gaddafi was maintained in power by paid gunmen from sub-Saharan Africa. They used the false specter of a black mercenary presence to turn the rebellion into a race war that claimed the lives of untold thousands of black Libyans and immigrant workers – an ethnic cleansing that no doubt still unfolds and will forever mark the new regime as racist to its core. That same regime now embraces a real world invasion of Euro-American mercenaries. White and money, indeed, makes right, in the new Libya. Continue Reading

Video and photographic evidence obtained by Global Postdemonstrates that Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was literally sodomized before being murdered by NATO/U.S.-backed Al-Qaeda rebel forces.
An analysis of video obtained by Global Post from a rebel fighter who recorded the moment when Col. Muammar Gaddafi was first captured confirms that another rebel fighter, whose identity is unknown, sodomized the former leader as he was being dragged from the drainpipe where he had taken cover.
The footage reveals the mindset of the NATO backed forces, violent thugs that U.S. taxpayers are funding as their homes are foreclosed. It is a mindset that clearly knows no bounds and has been unleashed on sovereign nations worldwide.
Just weeks ago it was believed that the first act of Al-Qaeda’s new “democratic” Libyan government was shooting Gaddafi in the head at close range without due process or formerly charging him with any crime. No, the first act was sodomy with a foreign object on a wounded man.
Of course, the Al-Qaeda backed rebels would not have been successful in capturing Libya and murdering Gaddafi absent massive NATO air bombardment of Tripoli, which resulted in thousands of civilian casualties. Shortly after the start of the conflict in March, Abdel-Hakim al-Hasidi, the leader of the anti-Gaddafi rebel army, admitted that the rebel ranks include Al-Qaeda terrorists who have killed U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
This all makes sense when you realize that Al-Qaeda is run by the Pentagon and is used as a tool of regional destabilization against governments like Gaddafi’s that oppose globalist objectives.
While Gaddafi may have been a tyrant and dictator, he was also an eccentric nationalist that opposed Western colonization of resource-rich Libya. Continue Reading
I’m raising three sons in a world that I don’t want them to live in. A world of hate, deception, war, injustice, and serfdom. A world that seems out of our control to change. If given a choice, who would want to live in that world?
Yet, we try to live the change that we want to see. We don’t have TV, we homeschool our boys, and we’ve opted out of the system as much as possible. We eat healthy, don’t use dangerous household chemicals, and shop almost exclusively at the local level. We grow food, keep chickens, recycle, and live as simply and independently as feasible. And we’ve taught our children that the principles of peace and love carry more weight than patriotism or any other manufactured beliefs.
But sometimes personal change doesn’t seem to be good enough to counteract a powerful establishment intent on having more war and more power.
The idea of peace doesn’t seem to be strong enough to prevent these engineered conflicts. What do we tell our children of the absolute destruction of Libya over so-called humanitarian concerns? When dragging the bloody body of the toppled leader through the streets is being hailed as some sort of victory. This, in the same week that Iraq, after all the tragedy there, was deemed mission accomplished for the umpteenth time.
Any peace-loving person who knows the real score of NATO’s Libya invasion must be incredibly disheartened. Continue Reading
At an October 11 press briefing, NATO spokesperson Oana Lungescu claimed Operation Unified Protector (NATO’s aggression on Libya) “has been a great success. We’re pretty close to the end, but we’re not there yet.”
“We did the right thing. We saved countless lives. We did it the right way, fast, with flexibility, involving Partners from the start, and we did it for the right reasons; to fully implement the mandate of the United Nations Security Council.”
“Now we will make sure the end of the operation will come when the time is right. We will not leave the job half done.”
“Our mission, as you know, is to prevent attacks and threats against civilians, so we will terminate the mission once we assess that there is no longer a systematic and significant threat….”
NATO military spokesperson Col. Roland Lavoie followed Lungescu with similar comments, claiming “we have witnessed a significant evolution of the situation in Libya.”
He added that “NATO is exercising air power only when necessary and always with caution, discernment and precision.” Continue Reading
Fake Radicals: Police Provocateurs
Undercover police officers have been caught trying to provoke protesters to attack cops during demonstrations (2007 Quebec protests; 2009 London G20-protests). Undercover police have even been caught on video breaking public and private property (Greece 2008). Masked undercover cops, some with sticks/clubs in their hand (Greece 2011), or dressed as a “black-bloc anarchist” (2010 Toronto G20), have been filmed passing police safety lines.
..and these are just few examples of agent provocateur-cops in the western world
You can find articles and videos on the subject by doing Google-searches, and going through YouTube with search terms like: ‘police agent provocateurs Greece’. Continue Reading
“We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth… For my part, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst; and to provide for it.” - Patrick Henry
Yesterday I came across a video clip depicting a gruesome hospital scene in Libya. I watched the video, and then watched it again. The children in a literal blood bath; torn limbs and ripped bodies. The excruciating pain. The ear-scratching wailings. The realities of a war. Not a declared war or a justified one. Not one waged in self defense or induced by any conceivable necessity. More like a one-sided assault waged by a big fat bully with heavy bats and sticks against unarmed little ones- an assault inside the victims’ home after a forceful break in. I believe this pretty much sums up the ugly truth depicted in the video clip – representative of thousands more that were never filmed and distributed.
I saved the video. I made a note. I thought about publishing it here at Boiling Frogs Post. But then I paused. I considered the reaction; at least the reaction of the majority. The same ole common reaction to be expected whenever ugly truths and uncomfortable realities are presented. The despise and hatred targeted at the bearer of the bad news and the illustrators of the ugly truths. Continue Reading
IMPORTANT: Controlled opposition scam alert….The “OCCUPY AMERICA MOVEMENT”.
It’s everywhere! Just like Arab Spring for North America! and it’s sooooooo grass roots and spontaneous!

COINTELPRO was the FBI acronym for ‘Counter Intelligence Program’. COINTELPRO not only infiltrated domestic antiwar and civil rights protest groups, it also created them. By 1968, the largest leading ‘counterculture’ groups were entirely FBI/CIA controlled.
In fact the leading ‘Anti-Establishment’ figures of the late 60′s early 70′s were outed years later as having been double agents for the CIA.
