Boston Marathon bombing2.jpg
The Boston Marathon bombings were suspicious events with an even more suspicious effort at cover up.
A year of increasing lawlessness by the US government, expanding the 'might is right' ethos in historically unprecedented ways.

2013 was a year of increasing lawlessness by the US government. On July 17, 2013 an objection to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 was struck down, giving the US government the legal right to detain anyone indefinitely without charge.[1] Philip Marshall was found dead as he was completing his 4th book about the events of September 11, 2001[2], while investigative journalist Michael Hastings died in a car crash in June after mentioning that he thought that his car was being tampered with.[3] However, Mark Gorton published Fifty Years of the Deep State, a highly recommended expose of the cabal which organised the JFK assassination and lies at the heart of the US Deep State to this day.

Google Trends reveals a spike in search interest in the term "hate speech" in January 2013 - of unknown origins. This term was to be frequently used by those seeking to legitimize internet censorship

Edward Snowden Affair

Full article: Edward Snowden Affair

An NSA contractor, Edward Snowden, leaked documents which revealed that mass surveillance was much more widespread than earlier realized. He confirmed the accounts of earlier whistleblowers such as William Binney and Russ Tice.

"National Security"

Full article: Rated 4/5 “National Security”

In 2013, the core mission of the FBI was changed quietly from law enforcement to "National Security". This reflects a wider shift away from explicitly defined, clear laws which are subject to review and challenge towards an opaque and deliberately ill-defined basis for the exercising of personal power.

The Boston Marathon bombings

Full article: Boston Marathon bombings

The Boston Marathon bombings were followed by an unprecedented city wide lock down which lacked even a purported legal basis. This appears to have been a further step down the road of conditioning people to the US Police State logic of "we have more guns than you, do as we say". WhoWhatWhy has been active in challenging the US government's official narrative of the event.


Full article: Rated 5/5 Document:Fifty Years of the Deep State

50 years on from the JFK assassination, Mark Gorton published Fifty Years of the Deep State, an expose of the cabal which lies at the heart of the US Deep State. This was broadcast in 2014 by Unwelcome Guests.[4]

CIA Admission

A 2013 declassified document was used to admit that the CIA was involved in the 1953 Iran coup d'état, ending 60 years of official silence on the topic.[5]

Hedges v. Obama13 January 2012 - 28 April 2014The plaintiffs challenged the 2012 NDAA contending that indefinite detention on "suspicion of providing substantial support" to groups such as al-Qaeda and the Taliban was so vague as to allow unconstitutional, indefininte detention of civilians based on vague allegations. The Court of Appeals struck down an initial agreement, and the US Supreme Court concurred, arguning that the plaintiffs could not prove they would be affected by the law, so had no standing to contest it.
Clapper v. Amnesty International USA29 October 2012 - 26 February 2013James Clapper sought to dismiss Amnesty International's challenge of the Fisa Amendments Act. They Supreme Court ruled that dragnet surveillance could not be challenged since the plaintiffs were unlikely to be targets of surveillance - something that was revealed a few months later by the Edward Snowden leaks to be untrue. The decision appear to be nevertheless unchallenged.
