Israeli Citizens Uprising Will USA Intervene??? & Mitt Romney "Corporations Are People" & Rick Perry's Dominionist 'Prayer Warriors'

"According to the through-the-looking-glass cosmology of mass media elitists, when a poor person commits a crime of opportunity, his actions are a threat to all we hold dear and sacred, but, when the hyper-wealthy of the entrenched looter class abscond with billions, those criminals are referred to as our financial leaders."

Woody Guthrie summed up the situation in these two (unfortunately) ageless stanzas:

"Yes, as through this world I've wandered
I've seen lots of funny men;
Some will rob you with a sixgun,
And some with a fountain pen.

"And as through your life you travel,
Yes, as through your life you roam,
You won't never see an outlaw
Drive a family from their home."
--excerpt from Pretty Boy Floyd.

"...Here's the paradox in this whole concept of "corporate personhood." When it comes to rights, Republicans say corporations are people. But when it comes to the responsibilities of personhood - like paying taxes, being sued for negligence or criminal manslaughter, that sort of thing - their response is "Are you crazy? We're talking about corporations here, not people." Quote from:" Shiny Happy Corporate People"

"If this guy prints more money between now and the election, I dunno what y'all would do to him in Iowa but we would treat him pretty ugly down in Texas. Printing more money to play politics at this particular time in American history is almost treasonous in my opinion." Rick Perry

In a bit of irony Israelis in their hundreds of thousands protest against government cuts to entitlement programs.
While President Obama and the GOP Tea Party Gang are gutting entitlement programs America's best friend Israel is experiencing  an uprising by its citizens who are demanding more entitlement programs from the cradle to the grave for all Israeli citizens.

The People of Israel VS The American Ultraconservatives

The demonstrators appear to be demanding the very things that the American elites and establishment are insisting on destroying.
President Obama's Uberconservative pro-elite economics would not play well in Israel
Yes Israelis citizens are demanding not less but more help from their government .
Will the Iron fisted black-booted IDF start shooting and straffing vcrowds with gunfire from Helicopter gunships as they have done over the years to the Palestinians , the Lebonese , Syrians, Iraqis, iranians and so on.
And will these massive crowds finally ask for Justice for their fellow citizens who are Arab or Palestinian or who are Christian -not so much. I don't hear them calling for taking down the Apatheid Wall or opening the borders to the people of Gaza or other neighboring states.
If Israel adopts an economic plan which would please these demonstrators ie raise taxes for the rich, extend welfare and  unemployment benefits, and promise to make education free for all citizens from age pre-school to graduate studies-will the US then place sanctions on Israel if the Israeli government and IDF refuse to round up all these Commie /Anarchist who believe in thew Welfare or Nanny state as a good thing.

Will the GOP insists US intervene militarily to put down this Commie insurection in Israel???

'Corporations Are People' - Mitt Romney

Uploaded by TheYoungTurks on Aug 11, 2011
2012 Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney took questions at the Iowa State Fair including one that led him to argue for corporate personhood (corporations are people). Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Since he announced his candidacy on Saturday, Texas Governor Rick Perry has been hailed as the great GOP hope of 2012. Perry's entry into the chaotic Republican primary race has excited the establishment in part because he does not have Michele Bachmann's reputation for religious zealotry, yet can likely count on the support of the Religious Right.

Another advantage for Perry is support from an extensive 50-state “prayer warrior” network, organized by the New Apostolic Reformation. A religious-political movement whose leaders call themselves apostles and prophets, NAR shares its agenda for control of society and government with other “dominionists,” but has a distinctly different theology than other groups in the Religious Right. They have their roots in Pentecostalism (though their theology has been denounced as a heresy by Pentecostal denominations in the past). The movement is controversial, even inside conservative evangelical circles. Nevertheless, Perry took the gamble that NAR could help him win the primaries, a testament to the power of the apostles’ 50-state prayer warrior network.
While it may not have been obvious to those outside the movement, Perry was publicly anointed as the apostles’ candidate for president in his massive prayer rally a few weeks ago, an event filled with symbolism and coded messages. This was live-streamed to churches across the nation and on God TV, a Jerusalem-based evangelical network.

There’s little doubt that Perry is NAR's candidate -- its chosen vehicle to advance the stated agenda of taking "dominion" over earthly institutions.

The Prayer Warriors and Politics

Perry’s event is not the first time NAR apostles have partnered with politicians. (See previous AlterNet articles by Paul Rosenberg and Bill Berkowitz.) Alaskan Apostle Mary Glazier claimed Sarah Palin was in her prayer network since she was 24 years old and Glazier continued to have contact with Palin through the 2008 election. Prior to running for governor, Palin was “anointed” at Wasilla Assembly of God by Kenyan Apostle Thomas Muthee, a star in promotional media for the movement. The Wasilla congregation is part of a Pentecostal denomination, but it’s leadership had embraced NAR’s controversial ideology years before and has hosted many internationally known apostles...
