This analytical series will serve as a Warning Intelligence series that sounds an alarm on a disturbing shift in American worldview, values, and morality. This series may evolve into a Current Intelligence series depending on future events.
The point of the series isn’t to persuade anyone on any position on the same-sex agenda; the point of the series is to note the signs that the U.S. is officially warring for sodomy politically, and note the signs that indicate it eventually might use force to implement the same-sex agenda throughout the world.
The series will start by noting stories in three categories, with the reader free to analyze and assess them on his own: Samantha Power and Her Role as Ambassador to the U.N., Demonizing Opposition to Sodomy While U.S. Engages in Actual Tyranny, and Declaring Opposition to Sodomy as a “Crime against Humanity.”
The push to change national and global perceptions of what the purpose of the U.S. armed forces is, along with views on sodomy and the concept of human rights, are key to understanding where society is heading.
Samantha Power and Her Role as Ambassador to the U.N.:
- “Endless War’s Pin-Up Girl” (American Spectator, June 13, 2013) – “Once an aberration, humanitarian military intervention is now the norm. . . .
For Ms. Power and her ilk, campaigns and press releases are for wimps. Real human rights demand military intervention. That means a larger presence for the U.S. military abroad. In this respect, Ms. Powers’ heroes are the great imperialists and disparagers of national sovereignty of yore — men like William Ewart Gladstone (“Do not let me be told that one nation has no authority over another. Every nation, and if need be every human being, has authority on behalf of humanity and of justice”) and Teddy Roosevelt (Nations sometimes commit crimes “on so vast a scale and of such peculiar horror” that we have a duty to step in. Depending on the “degree of the atrocity and upon our power to remedy it” it may require the “force of arms…to put a stop to intolerable conditions”). . . .
MS. POWER MADE her name with her 2003 Pulitzer Prize–winning book, A Problem From Hell: America and the Age of Genocide. In its pages she chastised America for its reluctance to use the G word. So distant are fears of American imperialism that even a Harvard liberal can excoriate America for its failure to ride to the rescue during the Rwandan genocide, the Srebrenica massacre, and numberless other humanitarian crises. In order to work out this contradiction in her mind she wrote A Problem From Hell. Her conclusion? Since America has an excess of tanks, planes, and disposable young men it is our moral obligation to be the world’s cavalry. And since the Finns, Argentinians, Canadians, et al. do not have as many tank and helicopters and their young men are not nearly as disposable, they can stay home with a clear conscience.”

- “UN Nominee Disavows Past Comments on ‘Crimes’ Committed by U.S.” (CNSNews.com, July 17, 2013) – “During a hearing Wednesday before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Power said that although the U.S. has a “national security interest and a moral responsibility to respond to cases of mass atrocity...that does not mean the United States should intervene militarily every time there’s an injustice in the world.”
Instead, she advocated the use of other “tools in the toolbox,” including “diplomatic, economic, arms embargos, radio jamming,” and other alternatives to military intervention. Intervention considerations are guided by the Obama administration’s policy to “Verify, then trust. Deeds, not words,” she added.
But when Rubio asked President Obama’s former foreign policy advisor about interviews and articles she had written that urge U.S. intervention in the Arab-Israeli conflict, she disavowed her own previous comments.”
- “On Russia’s ‘Anti-Gay Laws,’ Americans Are Nobody to Criticize” (American Thinker, August 09, 2013) – “A great deal has been made of Obama’s invocation of gay and lesbian rights as a reason to chill relations with Russia. Without getting into Snowden or Syria, it is the epitome of bad faith for Americans to slam Russia based on their laws regarding homosexuality. Here is why.
As this LifeSiteNews article points out, the law at the center of this controversy imposes a penalty of roughly US $156.00 on people who promote the gay lifestyle to minors. In California, there is currently a law forbidding mental health professionals from promoting the ex-gay lifestyle to minors. Similar laws are now pending in Massachusetts and New Jersey. Since anyone counseling minors to avoid homosexual inclinations would be breaking these state laws, he or she would be a criminal and a derelict professional, subject (I presume) to losing his or her license. Hence, such professionals face penalties far more severe than $156.00.
African-American Christians like Crystal Dixon, Julea Wade, and Angela McCaskill have been driven out, or almost driven out of their careers, for making even the slightest statements questioning the notion that homosexual acts are natural-born civil rights equivalent to the rights of black people to overcome the legacies of slavery and Jim Crow. Despite the lack of any scientific evidence that homosexuality is biologically inborn, and in spite of copious evidence that sexual orientation exists on a spectrum (hence the oft-forgotten B in LGBT), gays and lesbians remain a “protected class” in many jurisdictions. Therefore, people who criticize their lifestyle are constantly at risk of being fired or suspended without pay -- or else hounded in the court of public opinion -- resulting in financial losses far in excess of $156.00.”
- “Donnie McClurkin does not appear at King Memorial concert” (The Washington Post, August 10, 2013) – “Gospel singer Donnie McClurkin, who has said God delivered him from “the curse” of homosexuality, did not appear in a Saturday evening concert celebrating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, after several gay rights activists objected to his participation in the event.
“There should be freedom of speech as long as it’s done in love,” McClurkin said in the video, adding that he believes it is unfortunate that in today’s world, “a black man, a black artist is uninvited from a civil rights movement depicting the love, the unity, the peace, the tolerance.””

- “Post v. Putin – Whose Side Are You On?” (Patrick Buchanan Column, August 13, 2013) – “What this reveals is the distance America has traveled, morally and culturally, in a few short years, and our amnesia about who we Americans once were, and what it is we once believed.
Only yesterday, homosexual sodomy, which Thomas Jefferson said should be treated like rape, was outlawed in many states and same-sex marriage was regarded as an absurdity.
Was that America we grew up in really like Nazi Germany?”

It’s funny, but my legal and accurate whistleblowing has been completely ignored while traitors and law-breakers such as Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden have received massive attention, sympathy, and even praise for their release of selective intelligence of which the public doesn’t really understand.

The ruling means that the case brought by the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) on behalf of Sexual Minorities of Uganda (SMUG), a Uganda-based coalition of LGBTI rights and advocacy groups, can move forward over defendant Scott Lively’s request to dismiss the lawsuit.”

• 14 hours ago
Excellent news: the Center for Constitutional Rights has just won a federal court ruling that makes sure Scott Lively, the prominent U.S. anti-gay extremist behind both Uganda’s ‘kill the gays’ Bill [ANALYST’S COMMENT: This is untrue] and Russia’s no LGBTI ‘propaganda’ Law, will face a court where he is being sued for crimes against humanity under the Alien Tort Statute. . . .
Michael Ponsor, the US District Judge in Springfield, Maryland, said: ‘Widespread, systematic persecution of LGBTI people constitutes a crime against humanity that unquestionably violates international norms. The history and current existence of discrimination against LGBTI people is precisely what qualifies them as a distinct targeted group eligible for protection under international law. The fact that a group continues to be vulnerable to widespread, systematic persecution in some parts of the world simply cannot shield one who commits a crime against humanity from liability.’”
