All it take’s is giving up your Dancing with the stars and you can escape the matrix.
Saturdays are my speed shooting practice day and I have not had the time this morning to do more article reviews, so below is my rant about: “HOW DID THIS HAPPEN TO AMERICA?” Below my article is some information you may want to follow up on. Don’t think for a second this is not going on in America because the faggots have as much influence as you do. The United Nations has an agenda to disrupt society the world over and you won’t be able to protect your children from it.
In 1940 when I was born neighbors were like family, and sometimes better. The people still believed in Jesus Christ, and most families went to Church on Sunday, and left their doors unlocked. Six years later my Mother would send me to an independent local grocery store with a dollar, and I came home with a loaf of bread, a quart of milk, and three pork-chops. Try finding a big-box discount store with those prices now! Today the cops would throw her in jail for child abuse because I was un-chaperoned.
Women only worked outside the home during World War II and when it was over they quit and stayed home to raise their children. There were lots of children during that period! America was the shinning light to the rest of planet earth. Political ignorance was pandemic and everyone voted. There was never any talk about how corrupt their leaders were and today we consider such naivety a sign of ignorance.
Today, the majority think politicians can save America and bring back an affordable economy in-spite of having a tenth of the manufacturing jobs for the blue collar class and many millions more citizens to support. If you compared life in America then to what it is today you would think that hell had arrived.
The difference between then and now is so great many back then would shoot you for telling them what was going to happen to their golden years. They loved America and believed they were the saviors of humanity. The Japs and Krauts were defeated and the young Americans were heroes. Then came the Atomic age and they were hiding under their desks in school as the government education Cartel filled their hearts with fear. I was expelled for refusing to participate in such cowardice.
To placate the people our so called government would constantly placate everyone with promises that never materialized. Then the downward spiral gained momentum and what you see today is a Nation of cowards and self centered addicts.
To die for one’s freedom is considered a crime, and there is no more unity of spirit. Nothing matters except obtaining more income to squander on a life style of pleasure and abundance. Today the average dog is a nicer person than the average person.
Some readers may take offense at my curmudgeon heart, but I find misanthropy is in theirs. To be a real human one must be willing to suffer and die for their loved ones and truth. I see very little of that these days. People nowadays will go to any extreme to obtain security, and remain ignorant that it does not exist.
Now people are finding out just how corrupt the Government they support really is and instead of taking offense they admire them and wish they were smart enough to get away with the same thing, as long as they profited from it. Being rich is their God. The mundane have no value to them and are considered contemptible.
America will never again be the Nation that the people loved, believed in and died for. Self-centeredness is now a pandemic worst than the most dangerous virus. To be independent and live a lawful life requires an inner control mechanism they have no use for. Self is their priority, and with it they feel safe.
Do I hate my fellow man, neighbors and family? No! I just cannot find an excuse to be that self concerned. I never expected a life of ease and plenty, and they cannot envision life and happiness’ without it. Their mind set is self. They could care less if an old lady neighbor fell down stairs and broke her hip without family or insurance to get good health care.
The rare event when someone goes out of their way to help the afflicted is most often with the expectation of gain. People love their bath-room mirror more than their neighbors.
Don’t believe me? Try this experiment. Ask your pastor if you have one, to prepare a sermon on the brutality of our government, and how government controlled education system is usurping Americas mind bank, and making children blind to government atrocities is the real curriculum. They are complacent factories.
Let’s consider one of the most destructive tactics the government has been using to dismantle America besides education. Consider how they use duality to destroy neighbor relations, While they pass laws making it a crime to hate, they simultaneously import more Nationalities into the country with expectations of being cared for with your nickel. They want to disarm gun owners so they become victims of terrorist they import. They use treaties to hide the destruction of blue collar jobs, and support the unemployed with your nickel. When they run out of your nickels they tax you more. I’ve never heard of a bigger scam than Immigration.
How about the lies of government being by you, and for you, when it is really a profit making corporation which has no responsibility to your constitution or the people? It’s a business dummy!
Long ago the International Banking Cartel loaned the first government money for wars, then they justified giving them permission to print the Nations Currency, and they bankrupted America so they could bail us out at the expense of losing a republican Government by and for the people. Since then the people have continued to support the people who are slitting their throats.
You can learn a lot if you are awake and read the real history of this country, and how the Bankers have made Trillions of dollars from beguiling the citizens. Oh! Before I forget, there is a lady in Alaska who has the brain power of a thousand people and she has developed a method of disclaiming this rogue government’s ability to own you and keep you in their trap. If you still have any brains left I suggest you buy this book and read it at least twice, then follow her web site for her progress. You Know Something is Wrong When…..: An American Affidavit of Probable Cause (Paperback) by Judge Anna Maria Riezinger & James Clinton Belcher
There’s over two hundred articles on her site. http://www.annavonreitz.com/
A few words from
Have I got this right?
Bill Clinton was disbarred from practicing law in Arkansas and was also disbarred from practicing law in front of the Supreme Court over his perjury in the Monica Lewinski incident.
He also paid a $25,000 fine AND a $850,000 settlement over the Lewinski incident.
He was also fined $90,000 for giving false testimony in the Paula Jones case.
So… Bill Clinton, a disbarred lawyer, a President who was impeached and fined for lying under oath, asks the American people to believe him when he says the best thing for our country is 4 years of Hillary? And Hillary says she wants to turn over responsibility for the U.S. Treasury to him?
Just wanted to make sure I had it right.

Is Obuma Going to Create Crises to Suspend The November Election
by Attorney Edwin Vieira, Ph.D., JD
Constitutionalists, patriots, and other friends of freedom in ever-increasing numbers are
expressing their fears that the present resident of the White House, Barack Obama, intends, under color of some real or contrived “emergency”, to suspend the National elections this November, declare “martial law”, and expand the ambit of his usurpatory rule from that of an arguably faux yet only temporary President to that of an authentic & permanent dictator
The American Left is Evil
The American Left is just plain evil. Not only do they not seek truth, they suppress it. Everything the Left does, including shamefully exploiting the slaughter of Americans in a nightclub, is to further their deception and power to force their unpopular agenda down our throats…….

A missionary friend of mine in Eastern Europe recently gave me a heads up regarding an excellent article written by Sebastian Swift entitled “5 Confirmed False Flag Operations And How To Spot Them In The Future.”
Swift writes, “The false flag phenomenon is distinctively modern and used as an ideological weapon to control populations with the fear of a manufactured enemy. They are used in ostensibly democratic systems where people believe they have inalienable rights. Such democratic systems–primarily the United States, Israel, and Great Britain–must shock people into sociopolitical and geopolitical consent and, as such, require sophisticated modern propaganda systems and advanced covert operations teams with highly proficient skills.”
Here are his telltale signs of a false flag operation:
~There is an immediate comprehensive narrative, including a convenient culprit. Law enforcement, government agencies, and the mainstream media immediately proffer a narrative that completely explains the event and encourages citizens to tie their intellectual understanding of the tragedy to the emotions they experience. In his lecture at Contact in the Desert, [author and researcher] Richard Dolan noted that a distinguishing characteristic of a false flag operation is that the official narrative IS NOT questioned by the media. There are often legislative, ideological and sociopolitical power plays waiting in the wings, which the government can immediately implement.
~The official narrative has obvious domestic and geopolitical advantages for the governing body. The Bush administration used 9/11 to usher in the War on Terror, which has served as a lynchpin for countless civil liberty infringements by the national security state, including ubiquitous domestic surveillance and indefinite detention.
~The narrative behind the attack serves to leverage emotions like fear, as well as patriotism, in order to manufacture consent around a previously controversial issue. For example, many of the recent domestic terror attacks, including the Aurora [and Orlando] shooting[s], have exacerbated and reinforced advocacy of gun control legislation.
~Military training drills and police drills occur on the day of and very near the attack itself, causing confusion to obscure eye witness testimony and allowing orchestrators to plant both patsies, disinformation and backup operatives. This is no small point. An incredible percentage of major domestic or international terror attacks have involved simultaneous “training drills.” This list includes, but is not limited to, the infamous NORAD drills of 9/11, the 7/7 London Bombings, the 2011 Norway shooting, the Aurora shooting, Sandy Hook, and the Boston Marathon. Though none of the aforementioned events can be confirmed or denied without a doubt, they bear a striking resemblance to previous false flag attacks and should be looked at with an investigative eye.
See the article here.
It’s time for those of us who have been reluctant to consider the possibility that our own government (and the governments of Israel and Great Britain) could actually be complicit in domestic terrorism in order to further a nefarious agenda to at least stop accepting the government and media’s version of these tragedies at face value. For the most part, the mainstream media is little more than a propaganda ministry for the federal government. We haven’t seen true objective investigative journalism since before the death of John F. Kennedy.
Granted, not every national tragedy is part of a government conspiracy–and there is a plethora of “conspiracy nuts” out there to whom EVERYTHING is a conspiracy and through which we must wade to try to ascertain the truth. These people make it difficult for all of us. The Internet has provided the Chicken Littles of the world with an opportunity to play journalist. And their “everything’s-a-conspiracy” rants only serve to mask the true conspiracies and turn the average John Doe away from the truth. That’s why I believe that many of these “conspiracy-everywhere” Internet bloggers are actually PART OF THE CONSPIRACY. Their job is to make genuine whistleblowers and researchers look like conspiracy “kooks.” Then, of course, there are genuine kooks out there, too.
Regardless, the similarities and “coincidences” of many of these national tragedies are just too numerous for rational people to ignore. I believe Mr. Swift’s analysis is very intelligent, coherent, and plausible.
Our Founding Fathers believed their government (the British Crown) was deliberately conspiring against them. Thomas Jefferson said as much in our Declaration of Independence:
“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
Read it again: “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a DESIGN to reduce them under absolute Despotism . . . .” Jefferson and the rest of America’s founders believed that there was a “design” (i.e., “plot,” “scheme,” or “conspiracy,” if you please) to “reduce them under absolute Despotism.” So, if you believe that government conspiracy is only for kooks, you must include America’s Founding Fathers in that group.
Patrick Henry may have said it best: “We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren, till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation?
“For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth–to know the worst and to provide for it.”
I submit if we deliberately “shut our eyes against a painful truth,” liberty is not long for this country. And there is plenty of blame to go around.
Obviously, the “no conspiracy” group is contributing greatly to the demise of liberty by their unwillingness to even examine the evidence suggesting government conspiracies. Truly, they are shutting their eyes “against a painful truth.” And, unfortunately, this group is most prevalent among pastors, Christians, and churches.
I find it incredible that people who supposedly study their Bibles are so completely blind to government conspiracies. The Old and New Testaments are replete with examples of government conspiracies. Jewish governments, especially, were notorious for conspiring against God’s prophets in the Old Testament and against Jesus and the Apostles in the New Testament. Plus, the New Testament plainly pictures the master conspirator, Satan, as being the “god of this world” and “the prince of the power of the air.” His offer to Christ on the Mount of Temptation to give Jesus the “kingdoms of the world” was NOT challenged by the Lord. In other words, Jesus didn’t dispute the fact that Satan controls many, if not most, of the world’s governments. The Book of Ephesians warns against the conspiracy of “principalities,” “powers,” “rulers of the darkness of this world,” and “spiritual wickedness in high places.” Every Bible commentator that I respect includes wicked civil magistrates within these personages. Yet when one brings up the possibility of government conspiracies to the average church member, he or she is treated as if they have the palsy.
Nowhere is this attitude of the denial of conspiracies more evident than in the whole Muslim versus America façade. Almost no Christian leader seems to be able to see the “man behind the curtain” in this whole affair. They have absolutely NO concept of what the governments of the U.S., Great Britain, Israel, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia are surreptitiously doing to instigate and foment this “war with Islam.” (Of course, there is no war against the Islamic states of Saudi Arabia and Turkey; they are our “allies.”) Christians aren’t even willing to study the matter. Therefore, the devil–along with the evil miscreants inside Western governments that he controls–is able to go about his diabolical work completely undetected.
But, in all fairness, the “everything’s-a-conspiracy” group must also share culpability in our country’s demise. There are too many professing “patriots” who seem to have no honesty or objectivity whatsoever. To them, everything government does is bad whether it is or isn’t. And, of course, they, the so-called “patriots,” can do NOTHING wrong.
For example, if a black kid in an inner city is unjustly killed by a police officer, these “patriots” say absolutely NOTHING. But if one of their “own” is justly killed by police, they scream “tyranny” and shout about the need for revolution. Such people seem to have no reasoning ability and no understanding of Natural Law. They are agenda driven as surely as are big-government toadies. In fact, some of these “patriot” Internet bloggers and radio broadcasters are no better than the mainstream media: they twist the truth in order to pander to the people who are supporting them financially. It’s not about principle; it’s not about truth; it’s not about the rule of law. It’s all about their financial success.
When we only condemn injustice committed by government, while overlooking and condoning injustice committed by so-called “patriots,” we lose all credibility and integrity. Everything is not a conspiracy. Every policeman or federal agent is not a Jackboot. Sometimes there are real acts of violence committed by real deranged criminals with no help whatsoever from anyone–including anyone in government. And sometimes there are so-called “patriots” who are themselves evil, using the freedom movement for their own ulterior purposes. And, of course, there are well-intentioned people who sometimes do very foolish and unwise things. And only foolish and unwise people would condone and support foolish and unwise actions, even if they are well-intentioned.
I totally agree with Sebastian Swift’s article that there are indeed false flag operations being perpetrated by rogue elements within government–including the governments of the United States, Great Britain, and Israel. I further agree that people need to honestly and objectively be alert for the identifying characteristics of these false flag operations. More than that, the American people need to begin holding our civil magistrates accountable for these operations, as they could not continue without the tacit support of our elected representatives and President.
But what we do NOT need are phony “patriots” who do nothing but distract, confuse, and incite by calling everything a conspiracy and who themselves are guilty of unlawful conduct–unlawful conduct as defined by God and Natural Law. (This is why the ignorance and silence of America’s pulpits is such an egregious crime: people do not even know how to discern lawful and unlawful conduct because pastors are not teaching them these Biblical Natural Law principles.) Plus, I am personally convinced that many of these hot-headed so-called “patriots” are in reality government agent provocateurs who are deliberately trying to incite real patriots into doing something stupid.
Again, I submit if we deliberately “shut our eyes against a painful truth,” liberty is not long for this country. And that includes admitting when a tragedy is NOT a conspiracy. But it also means admitting when evidence suggests that it IS.

When we talk about government corporations, we are talking about state-owned enterprises. The following definition from Wikipedia explains why it is so difficult to follow to fruition the articles about governments incorporating that I wrote almost two years ago. When you read the various definitions, it makes the articles easier to follow and makes understandable the West Virginia video and the Henry County, GA County Commissioner confusion – of not knowing they are one the boards of all these organizations.
American Matrix: How We Lost Our Constitution, Part 1, 1-13-15
American Matrix: How We Lost Our Constitution, Part 2, 1-16-15
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A state-owned enterprise (SOE), also called state-owned company, state-owned entity, state enterprise, publicly owned corporation, government business enterprise, crown corporation, government-owned corporation, commercial government agency, public sector undertaking, or parastatal, is a legal entity that undertakes commercial activities on behalf of an owner, the government.
The legal status of SOEs varies from being a part of the government to being stock companies with the state as a regular stockholder. The defining characteristics of SOEs are that they have a distinct legal form and are established to operate in commercial affairs. While they may also have public policy objectives, SOEs should be differentiated from other forms of government agencies or state entities established to pursue purely nonfinancial objectives.
Government-owned corporations are common with natural monopolies and infrastructure, such as railways and telecommunications, strategic goods and services (mail, weapons), natural resources and energy, politically sensitive business, broadcasting, demerit goods (alcohol), and merit goods (healthcare).

Control of American States has been accomplished by stealth. There is no denying the fact that in the beginning the transformation from a Republican form of Government was done by the Elite International Bankers by stealth. It was easy because of the ignorance of the population and patriotic disinformation. They created a myth that would appeal to the average man/woman’s sense of self image and independence. The problem with all this is, (The Corporation has no responsibility to the People because they formed legal instruments that turned the people into a negotiable contract that they used for raising cash. THEY OWN US! At least; according to the law of the sea; which was not supposed to be used against the people. They used and manipulated our ever growing ignorance through control of public education and the lure of riches in this huge resource rich country. They pandered to our sense of individualism using wars to build a sense of ownership and patriotism in America. In a nut shell, we have been BEGUILED!
This so called government of the people, by the people, and for the people means “the stock holders of the various corporate names they have used for our country”. According to them, we do not own anything, because they have a lien on it all, including your person.
Now many good intentioned individuals using the power of the internet have arisen and supposedly are devising legal means of disassociating our person-hood from their lien on us, at the expense of denying what we have believed we were all of our life.
They ignore the emotional attachment we have lived with all our lives and tell us we can be free, if we separate from the monster corporation that claims to own us. As for me and my house we declare all of their instruments to be null and void due to non disclosure, and they can go straight to hell. Now, it depends on our willingness to die in support of our opinion, and we will. So now you know why I have never voted in their phony elections, and I never will, because they are all controlled by the elite Bankers, whether they know it or not. Our politicians all know better than to shit in their own nest.
If you want to try the legal common law method of escape, you better liquidate everything you own and buy silver bullion and gold depending on your accumulation of assets they say are theirs, hide the cache off-shore if you can find a secure vault not subject to their control, then go for it. Just don’t forget to be armed to the teeth, because the majority of your fellow Americans will rat you out in a heart beat.

The foreign policy for dealing with radical Islam pursued by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton can best be described as the intersection of ideology and incompetence.
Obama’s “amore” for radical Islam began in 2009, soon after his inauguration, when he ordered his administration not to support the Iranian Green Revolution after thousands of brave Iranian democracy protesters rose up against the brutal Khamenei regime.
According to the Wall Street Journal: “Obama administration officials at the time were working behind the scenes with the Sultan of Oman to open a channel to Tehran. The potential for talks with Iran-and with Mr. Khamenei as the ultimate arbiter of any nuclear agreement,” one that would prove to be a national security disaster for the US. As it turned out, Obama’s Iran nuclear agreement only strengthen the hard-liners; since completion of the agreement, Tehran has stepped up arrests of political opponents.
In 2010, Obama ordered his advisors to produce a secret report, later known as Presidential Study Directive-11 (PSD-11), which concluded that the United States should shift from its longstanding policy of supporting stable but authoritarian regimes in the Middle East and North Africa to one backing, what Obama Administration officials considered groups such as the Muslim Brotherhood and the Turkish AK Party, now led by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, as a so-called “moderate” alternative to more violent Islamist groups like al Qaeda and the Islamic State.
The Muslim Brotherhood was founded in Egypt in 1928 as a Sunni Islamist religious, political and social movement, whose fundamental goal remains Islam’s global domination and the implementation of Sharia. Although the Muslim Brotherhood uses political instruments more than violence, its radical goals are no different from al-Qaeda and ISIS.
It has long been suspected that Obama, not only supports the Muslim Brotherhood, but that his administration is infiltrated by the Brotherhood, including Hillary Clinton’s long-serving assistant, Huma Abedin, who has enjoyed an intensely close relationship with the Islamist organization for decades.
Therein rests the motivation for the policies formulated and actions taken by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in Egypt, Libya and Syria, all of which led to the growth of radical Islam in North Africa and the Middle East.
The Tunisian revolution in December 2010 and the rise of the Islamist Ennahda Movement in that country was quickly followed by the Cairo protests that began on January 25, 2011 under the direction of Egypt’s largest opposition group, the Muslim Brotherhood. The protests and associated violence led to the resignation on February 11, 2011 of long-time US ally, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. There are now a number of reports indicating the US cooperated with and attempted to sustain the influence of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, including an alleged Brotherhood agent inside the US Embassy in Cairo.
Violent regime change in support of radical Islam began in earnest on February 15, 2011, when a rebellion broke out in Benghazi, Libya against the authoritarian regime of Muammar Qaddafi. Toppling Qaddafi had long been a goal of Islamic militant groups, including al-Qaeda and the local Libyan al-Qaeda affiliate, the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), a key player in the anti-Qaddafi rebellion.
Within a few weeks of the outbreak of fighting in eastern Libya, Obama has signed a secret order authorizing a covert CIA operation to support Islamist rebel forces seeking to oust Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi. Both inside and outside the Obama administration, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was among the most vocal early proponents of using U.S. military force to unseat Qaddafi. Seven months and thousands of more unnecessary deaths later, in October 2011, after an extended military campaign with sustained Western support, Islamist rebel forces conquered the country and shot Qaddafi dead. Many will recall Hillary Clinton, on October 20, 2011, cackling to a TV news reporter over the death of Qaddafi: “We came, we saw, he died.”
Since then, Libya has been in a constant state of chaos, with factional infighting, no uniting leader and has provided a haven for ISIS and other Islamic terrorists; culminating in the September 11, 2012 attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi and the death of four Americans.
In released, but redacted emails, Hillary Clinton expressed interest in arming Libyan opposition groups using private security contractors. In an April 8, 2011 email to her then-deputy chief of staff, Jake Sullivan, Clinton wrote: “FYI. The idea of using private security experts to arm the opposition should be considered.” It now appears probable that, in 2011, at Clinton’s urging, Obama secretly approved the arming of rebels in Libya and, later Syria by the same method, via a third party, likely Qatar, who had brokered the sale of more than $100 million in crude oil from rebel-held areas.
The rise of ISIS can be directly linked to the power vacuum left after the premature withdrawal of US forces from Iraq in December 2011 and fueled by American abdication of a foreign policy in Syria, where we sub-contracted our interests to Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Turkey. Not surprisingly, those countries pursued their own interests; the Saudis supporting radical Islamic Salafists, while the Turks and Qataris backed the Muslim Brotherhood.
By the summer of 2012, Turkey, together with Saudi Arabia and Qatar, had constructed a fully operational secret command and control center to facilitate communications and the movement of weapons to the Syrian rebel groups. The center in Adana, a city in southern Turkey about 100 km (60 miles) from the Syrian border, was set up after Saudi Deputy Foreign Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Abdullah al-Saud visited Turkey and requested it. Adana is home to Incirlik, a large Turkish/U.S. air force base which Washington has used in the past for reconnaissance and military logistics operations. Adana is in close proximity to the Turkish port of Iskenderun, a major transit point for arms destined for the Syrian rebels.
It is important to note that Obama’s friend, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, is a Sunni Islamist, a vehement opponent of Syrian President Bashar al Assad and a fervent supporter of the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood.
Assad has placed emphasis on controlling northwest Syria, which safeguards his Shia-Alawite home region and his base of support, as well as securing the strategically critical coastal area containing the Latakia airbase used by Russian forces and the important port of Tartus – a situation that has largely left eastern Syria along the Iraq border open for Islamist exploitation.
A Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) report sent to Hillary Clinton and other administration officials in August 2012 and declassified in May 2015, stated that “the Salafist, the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI (Al- Qaeda in Iraq, which became ISIS) are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria,” and being supported by “the West, Gulf countries and Turkey.”
The report goes into detail about how the West was actively helping those opposition groups control the eastern border of Syria near the Iraqi province of Anbar and the strategic city of Mosul, both of which eventually came under control of ISIS.
The stupidity of Obama’s ideological and Muslim Brotherhood-centric policy in dealing with radical Islam is only exceeded by the galactic incompetence in which it was carried out, and has left us living in a more dangerous world.

First, Dr. William Mount. I have heard numerous “reports” and watched several videos that people have sent me over the last two years all issued by this man and absolutely not one of his prognostications bore fruit.
When one considers “the fruits” one must consider whether there are any. And next, what has occurred by omission— people being scared for nothing, people being hopeful for nothing, and most importantly, people not thinking for themselves and acting in their own best interests while relying on the “intel” being fed to them by Dr. William Mount.
Second, Le Neu Republique, or is it La Neu Republique—-? “La”, I believe upon reconsideration. The French have the habit of considering all things that are changeable and secretive, like governments, to be of the feminine gender. Who knows? Perhaps they are right.
Anyway, the Truth of the matter is that the French Government allowed itself to be used as an accomplice by the British Government back at the end of the Second World War. Both countries owed a lot of money to the Americans so they were both hot to find a way to defraud us. And they did.
The French charted both the UN Corporation and the International Monetary Fund doing business as the IMF (which is an agency of the United Nations) well before the United Nations Charter was ever signed.
Think about that. Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
The UNITED STATES, Inc. which sponsored all the STATE OF OHIO and STATE OF OREGON and STATE OF WHATEVER ELSE franchises and which has been busily providing us with “governmental services” since 1944 — and providing us with a lot of services we never ordered and not providing services we did order and basically overcharging us for everything possible— is owned and operated by the IMF which is in turn owned and operated by the UN Corp which is owned and operated by the World Bank which is owned and operated by Jacob Rothschild who is the pimp for the British Crown Conglomerate.
The French supplied the corporate charters to hide the British aim, and the British provided the mechanisms and the man-power to carry out the fraud scheme against the Americans— the whole fraud of registering our births and creating these bogus corporate entities and operating them in our names and buying and trading them on the stock markets of the world is pure British crime at its best—- press-ganging, inland piracy, semantic decent, reverse trust fraud, identity theft, credit theft— all brought to you by people you thought were your friend and Allies, people you trusted to run the court system for you.
The problem for the French is that because they chartered these infamous corporations, they are responsible for their lawful operation and functioning.
Rather than own up to their responsibility and admitting their guile and culpability, the French Government is attempting to continue to usurp our lawful government and keep all this crap under the rug, by booting up another French “governmental services corporation” and (falsely) advertising it as the “New Republic”.
The advantage of the “New Republic” from their standpoint is that if we are stupid enough to go for it, they can then use it as a means to force us to pay off the odious debts owed by the first French corporation known as the UNITED STATES, Inc. And, they think nobody will be any the wiser.
The Brits are eagerly backing this plan, too, because God-forbid that their seedy underbelly and sanctimonious fraud be exposed to the rest of the world. We might then all have the good sense to throw off centuries of British Crown domination and fraud and criminality—especially their dominance of the banking and legal industry, the criminal manipulation of which is their main source of income.
We have been snookered senseless by our “Allies”, and that is the sad fact of it. General Dunford has perhaps been drawn into the net or perhaps thought he had no choice but to accept the newest con as a remedy for the old con. I certainly cannot and will not answer for him, nor even presume that he has actually agreed to play a part in this scheme. There seems to be no credible confirmation one way or another from him.
Somehow, it never occurs to crooks caught red-handed up to their shoulders in the cookie jar that they need to admit their crime. They need to come forward and just say— we were bombed out after the Second World War, our land ravaged, our cities in ruins. We had to borrow from the Americans and we did— but we did it in a dishonest way, because otherwise the debt involved would have crushed us and reduced our people to generations of misery. So that’s what we did and why we did it. Can we be forgiven?
I think the answer is— yes, but only if you straighten up your act, stop doing this crazy stuff, and finally deal with the bankers and lawyers who have been allowed –and indeed, instructed— to promote all this criminality and fraud.
Otherwise, it is inevitable that the people in all these countries throughout Europe and throughout the world are going to wake up and start tearing down banks brick by brick and gibbeting lawyers on street corners.
We have finally grown up enough to understand that these are not political, ethnic, nor religious issues. These are issues of self-interested crime being promoted by members of society in positions of trust, both public and private.
So, thumbs down on the French Neu Republique. What we need is our old American Republic fully restored with no further questions or obligations.
Third, about NESARA…. I have covered this repeatedly, but people don’t want to hear it. My Mother was intimately involved in the Farm Union Cases that gave rise to the original NESARA legislation. It was offered as remedy by a lone Congressman and it was laughed out of the Beltway.
Why, the members of Congress asked, should we pay our honest debts to the American People? We can just seek bankruptcy protection instead—- and that’s what they did.
There’s no question that they have acted as criminals, that they and the banks are guilty of fraud, extortion, personage, unlawful conversion—absolutely none. It has already been decided long ago by the Supreme Court.
But here is a little history lesson people need to take to heart— the Supreme Court can’t force the Congress to take any positive action. It can only force the Congress to stop doing a specific wrong thing. And the Congress, not the Supreme Court, holds the purse strings.
So the Supreme Court can find in your favor all day long, but if the United States of America, Inc., is bankrupt and the dodgy characters who made off with your assets are not willing to make things right using other funds, the old adage about “blood from a turnip” applies.
Of course, the rats should never have been allowed any bankruptcy protection in the first place. The crimes they committed amount to malicious fraud and should have pierced the “corporate veil” like a knife and ended the bankruptcy proceedings instantly, but instead, the Supreme Court “sealed” the cases and has sat on the whole stinking pile of manure ever since.
The members of “Congress” and Billy Boy Clinton sat there in their posh offices laughing at the defrauded farmers and the millions upon millions of other honest hard-working American families they snookered— they still do. They think that’s their job and their privilege, since we were so stupid as to vote for them and hand them our proxy as “representatives” instead of fiduciary deputies.
They can do what they like with no accountability at all— until the American People and the American Armed Forces finally wake to hell up.
But back to NESARA….. the only way that NESARA will ever be passed is if the halls of Washington, DC, are scrubbed clean with bleach and a completely new Congress composed of lawfully elected and fully accountable fiduciary deputies votes for it.
There is no way that the currently composed Congress will or even can pass the NESARA legislation.
I hear you all scratching your heads and asking— “Wait a minute, Anna, you just said that the members of Congress are free to do whatever they like, including selling us down the drain? What do you mean now that they “can’t” pass NESARA?”
They can’t pass NESARA because that would cost the already insolvent UNITED STATES, Inc., even more than it owes already. The only way they can pay their secondary creditors is by pretending that their Priority Creditors (you and I) either don’t exist or voluntarily “abandoned” our claims against them, plus, the members of Congress took their Oath to the United States—-not the united States of America.
Look up the “Oath of Office” the members of Congress have taken. They didn’t pledge their allegiance to you, their “presumed” constituents, nor to this country, either. They pledged it to the IMF doing business as the “UNITED STATES”.
That’s why they can’t do anything like pass NESARA, even if they wanted to.
Real remedy requires a lot more than “hope and spin and wishful thinking”. It requires insight and critical thought and meaningful action from all of you. Just letting the members of “Congress” and the “United Nations” and the “Joint Chiefs” and everyone on your email list know these facts might be the single best thing you could ever do.

While I might disagree that this event was not actual staged as Sandy Hook was staged, Brandon Smith makes some very valid points about your own self defense and safety.
By Brandon Smith
Numerous liberty movement analysts and proponents, myself included, have been warning about 2016 and the heightened potential for multiple terrorist events. I have written extensively on the history of ISIS, its proven ties to western governments and the disturbing program to forcefully inject millions of Islamic refugees into western nations in the name of “multiculturalism,” allowing thousands of potential terrorists into our borders without obstruction. The reality is that terrorist attacks of small and medium scale are likely to become a monthly or weekly occurrence in the U.S. and the EU as we close in on the end of the year. Get used to the idea, because this problem is not going to go away while our own governments are aiding and even funding the very psychopaths that they are supposed to be protecting people from.
The recent attack at at gay club in Orlando by a self-proclaimed ISIS advocate, killing at least 50 people and wounding at least 53 more, was not at all a surprise. The scale of the attack should have been expected. No one in the U.S. should have assumed anything less given the number of dead during events in Europe.
What is frustrating, however, is that even though these attacks are highly predictable, very few Americans seem to be preparing in any meaningful way to counter them. In fact, I happened across a clip of establishment mouthpiece Bill O’ Reilly today arguing that there “is nothing that we can do” to stop such lone wolf attacks.
Ostensibly, this is an argument against the inevitable push for more gun control by Leftists in the wake of the Orlando massacre; but it also sets a dangerous and false precedent in the minds of the public. The fact of the matter is, the American people can stop the majority of terrorist attacks of this nature anytime they wish, without the aid of government or the implementation of unconstitutional gun control measures.
On the “progressive” side of the debate, of course their only solution is to promote more gun control. But, they exploit every tragedy in order to defile the 2nd Amendment and dance in the blood of mass shooting victims in order to further their agendas. They could not care less about the people who died.
In the wacky social justice camp, a “feel good” approach is being pursued. The argument among the cultural Marxists is that we must “turn hate into love,” whatever that means. But the basic strategy seems to be to ignore the glaring problems with Islamic fundamentalism and blame straight white people for their colonial privilege instead.
All camps also seem to be overly focused on the sexual proclivities of the victims. The fact that a gay club was the target has LGBT organizations in a frenzied rush to capitalize on the hate crime train. Of course, the reality that the Left has consistently defended the integration of Islam and western culture is never brought up. I have not yet seen the social justice crowd explain how they can reconcile the jihadist contempt for homosexuals with their supposed concern for the safety of the gay community. I am certainly interested to watch the mental gymnastics in action, though.
Frankly, the sexual “identities” of those killed does not really matter much. Followers of ISIS have not necessarily shown any favoritism to any particular target group. They’ll kill just about anyone, including their own comrades in arms if there is something to be gained by it.
With all the sociopolitical blathering going on in the mainstream media, the core issue has been completely overlooked — why did those people die?
As stated earlier, they did not die because they were gay. ISIS agents kill all kinds of people for numerous reasons. They did not die because the gun control measures are not in place; Omar Mateen passed background checks when purchasing his weapons. No amount of added measures would have flagged him because he had no criminal record to speak of. And, as the ISIS attacks in Paris proved, bad guys can get their hands on guns even in countries with the most stringent gun control laws.
Perhaps the federal government could have stopped Mateen; they had already been watching him for years. But, the feds either ignored the danger or were well aware of the danger and did nothing (this seems to be a constant trend in the history of terrorism in the U.S.). In either case, the government is not going to save you from terrorism, and if your only hope is that you expect them to keep you from harm, you are probably going to die.
Leftists want to direct public interest towards the gay issue. They want to make the Orlando attack a martyr’s cry for the LGBT community and social justice warriors. But the cold truth is that most or all of the people killed in Orlando could have lived — if only they had a logical attitude of self defense.
I have enough tactical background to recognize a professional shooter. Anyone who can walk into the sheer wall of human chaos that erupts in a crowded building during an active shooter scenario and still be able to achieve the fire discipline necessary to make kill shots on 50 people and wound 53 more is highly trained. A random spraying of bullets into a crowd is not going to produce such results. This was the work of a collected and skilled person.
The only remedy to remove a skilled active shooter (or even most unskilled active shooters) is another skilled shooter. That night in Orlando ended in a bloodbath because there were no skilled civilian shooters, gay or straight, present in the building when the attack occurred.
Now, given, if a terrorist is searching for a soft target, you can’t get much softer than a gay night club. The lack of self defense instinct and a penchant for anti-gun politics make the gay community easy picking. However, the potential for self defense is present in almost every person as long as proper training is applied.
As I have pointed out in the past, even the FBI admits that the vast majority of active shooter scenarios that are stopped are obstructed by civilians present at the event, not by law enforcement. Many active shooters will even commit suicide immediately after they meet any resistance in order to avoid prolonged pain or capture. You are the first and sometimes only responder when your own life is in danger.
In the end, the great danger represented by “lone wolf” terrorism is energized by the American public’s refusal (on both the Left and the Right) to accept that the only practical solution is an armed and trained citizenry. We can argue for an eternity about “hate crime,” Islamic integration, government vigilance, etc. None of it will amount to jack. Nothing will ever be accomplished. The real debate, the debate that the establishment does not want the American public to entertain, is the debate over our level of preparedness.
The mainstream narrative demands that we argue over gun control, multiculturalism, more government and better vetting of potential terrorists. While all these issues are vital for various reasons, none of them confront the greater problem. If Americans are not interested in methods to protect themselves, then all else is futile. Each individual must decide his or her potential safety margin.
The bottom line? If you want better odds of survival, you will arm yourself, you will train regularly to handle active shooter scenarios and you will carry your weapon avidly. If you do not, then you are responsible for every consequence that you, and those you care for, suffer down the road.

America’s Gestapo: The FBI’s Reign of Terror
By John W. Whitehead
“We want no Gestapo or secret police. The FBI is tending in that direction. They are dabbling in sex-life scandals and plain blackmail. J. Edgar Hoover would give his right eye to take over, and all congressmen and senators are afraid of him.”—President Harry S. Truman
“Don’t Be a Puppet” is the message the FBI is sending young Americans.
June 14, 2016 “Information Clearing House” – “Rutherford Institute” – As part of the government’s so-called ongoing war on terror, the nation’s de facto secret police force is now recruiting students and teachers to spy on each other and report anyone who appears to have the potential to be “anti-government” or “extremist.”
Using the terms “anti-government,” “extremist” and “terrorist” interchangeably, the government continues to add to its growing list of characteristics that could distinguish an individual as a potential domestic terrorist.
For instance, you might be a domestic terrorist in the eyes of the FBI (and its network of snitches) if you:
- express libertarian philosophies (statements, bumper stickers)
- exhibit Second Amendment-oriented views (NRA or gun club membership)
- read survivalist literature, including apocalyptic fictional books
- show signs of self-sufficiency (stockpiling food, ammo, hand tools, medical supplies)
- fear an economic collapse
- buy gold and barter items
- subscribe to religious views concerning the book of Revelation
- voice fears about Big Brother or big government
- expound about constitutional rights and civil liberties
- believe in a New World Order conspiracy
Despite its well-publicized efforts to train students, teachers, police officers, hairdressers, store clerks, etc., into government eyes and ears, the FBI isn’t relying on a nation of snitches to carry out its domestic spying.
There’s no need.
The nation’s largest law enforcement agency rivals the NSA in resources, technology, intelligence, and power. Yet while the NSA has repeatedly come under fire for its domestic spying programs, the FBI has continued to operate its subversive and clearly unconstitutional programs with little significant oversight or push-back from the public, Congress or the courts. Just recently, for example, a secret court gave the agency the green light to quietly change its privacy rules for accessing NSA data on Americans’ international communications.
Indeed, as I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the FBI has become the embodiment of how power, once acquired, can be easily corrupted and abused.
When and if a true history of the FBI is ever written, it will not only track the rise of the American police state but it will also chart the decline of freedom in America.
Owing largely to the influence and power of the FBI, the United States—once a nation that abided by the rule of law and held the government accountable for its actions—has steadily devolved into a police state where justice is one-sided, a corporate elite runs the show, representative government is a mockery, police are extensions of the military, surveillance is rampant, privacy is extinct, and the law is little more than a tool for the government to browbeat the people into compliance.
The FBI’s laundry list of crimes against the American people includes surveillance, disinformation, blackmail, entrapment, intimidation tactics, harassment and indoctrination, governmental overreach, abuse, misconduct, trespassing, enabling criminal activity, and damaging private property.
And that’s just based on what we know.
Whether the FBI is planting undercover agents in churches, synagogues and mosques; issuing fake emergency letters to gain access to Americans’ phone records; using intimidation tactics to silence Americans who are critical of the government; recruiting high school students to spy on and report fellow students who show signs of being future terrorists; or persuading impressionable individuals to plot acts of terror and then entrapping them, the overall impression of the nation’s secret police force is that of a well-dressed thug, flexing its muscles and doing the boss’ dirty work of ensuring compliance, keeping tabs on potential dissidents, and punishing those who dare to challenge the status quo.
The FBI was established in 1908 as a small task force assigned to deal with specific domestic crimes. Initially quite limited in its abilities to investigate so-called domestic crimes, the FBI has been transformed into a mammoth federal policing and surveillance agency. Unfortunately, whatever minimal restrictions kept the FBI’s surveillance activities within the bounds of the law all but disappeared in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. The USA Patriot Act gave the FBI and other intelligence agencies carte blanche authority in investigating Americans suspected of being anti-government.
As the FBI’s powers have grown, its abuses have mounted.
The FBI continues to monitor Americans engaged in lawful First Amendment activities.
COINTELPRO, the FBI program created to “disrupt, misdirect, discredit, and neutralize” groups and individuals the government considers politically objectionable, was aimed not so much at the criminal element but at those who challenged the status quo—namely, those expressing anti-government sentiments such as Martin Luther King Jr. and John Lennon. It continues to this day, albeit in other guises.
The FBI has become a master in the art of entrapment.
In the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks the FBI has not only targeted vulnerable individuals but has also lured them into fake terror plots while actually equipping them with the organization, money, weapons and motivation to carry out the plots—entrapment—and then jailing them for their so-called terrorist plotting. This is what the FBI characterizes as “forward leaning—preventative—prosecutions.”
FBI agents are among the nation’s most notorious lawbreakers.
In addition to creating certain crimes in order to then “solve” them, the FBI also gives certain informants permission to break the law, “including everything from buying and selling illegal drugs to bribing government officials and plotting robberies,” in exchange for their cooperation on other fronts. USA Today estimates that agents have authorized criminals to engage in as many as 15 crimes a day. Some of these informants are getting paid astronomical sums: one particularly unsavory fellow, later arrested for attempting to run over a police officer, was actually paid $85,000 for his help laying the trap for an entrapment scheme.
The FBI’s powers, expanded after 9/11, have given its agents carte blanche access to Americans’ most personal information.
The agency’s National Security Letters, one of the many illicit powers authorized by the USA Patriot Act, allows the FBI to secretly demand that banks, phone companies, and other businesses provide them with customer information and not disclose the demands. An internal audit of the agency found that the FBI practice of issuing tens of thousands of NSLs every year for sensitive information such as phone and financial records, often in non-emergency cases, is riddled with widespread violations.
The FBI’s spying capabilities are on a par with the NSA.
The FBI’s surveillance technology boasts an invasive collection of spy tools ranging from Stingray devices that can track the location of cell phones to Triggerfish devices which allow agents to eavesdrop on phone calls. In one case, the FBI actually managed to remotely reprogram a “suspect’s” wireless internet card so that it would send “real-time cell-site location data to Verizon, which forwarded the data to the FBI.”
The FBI’s hacking powers have gotten downright devious.
FBI agents not only have the ability to hack into any computer, anywhere in the world, but they can also control that computer and all its stored information, download its digital contents, switch its camera or microphone on or off and even control other computers in its network. Given the breadth of the agency’s powers, the showdown between Apple and the FBI over customer privacy appears to be more spectacle than substance.
James Comey, current director of the FBI, knows enough to say all the right things about the need to abide by the Constitution, all the while his agency routinely discards it. Comey argues that the government’s powers shouldn’t be limited, especially when it comes to carrying out surveillance on American citizens. Comey continues to lobby Congress and the White House to force technology companies such as Apple and Google to keep providing the government with backdoor access to Americans’ cell phones.
The FBI’s reach is more invasive than ever.
This is largely due to the agency’s nearly unlimited resources (its minimum budget alone in fiscal year 2015 was $8.3 billion), the government’s vast arsenal of technology, the interconnectedness of government intelligence agencies, and information sharing through fusion centers—data collecting intelligence agencies spread throughout the country that constantly monitor communications (including those of American citizens), everything from internet activity and web searches to text messages, phone calls and emails.
Today, the FBI employs more than 35,000 individuals and operates more than 56 field offices in major cities across the U.S., as well as 400 resident agencies in smaller towns, and more than 50 international offices. In addition to their “data campus,” which houses more than 96 million sets of fingerprints from across the United States and elsewhere, the FBI is also, according to The Washington Post, “building a vast repository controlled by people who work in a top-secret vault on the fourth floor of the J. Edgar Hoover FBI Building in Washington. This one stores the profiles of tens of thousands of Americans and legal residents who are not accused of any crime. What they have done is appear to be acting suspiciously to a town sheriff, a traffic cop or even a neighbor.”
If there’s one word to describe the FBI’s covert tactics, it’s creepy.
The agency’s biometric database has grown to massive proportions, the largest in the world, encompassing everything from fingerprints, palm, face and iris scans to DNA, and is being increasingly shared between federal, state and local law enforcement agencies in an effort to target potential criminals long before they ever commit a crime.
This is what’s known as pre-crime.
If it were just about fighting the “bad guys,” that would be one thing. But as countless documents make clear, the FBI has no qualms about using its extensive powers in order to blackmail politicians, spy on celebrities and high-ranking government officials, and intimidate dissidents of all stripes.
It’s an old tactic, used effectively by former authoritarian regimes.
In fact, as historian Robert Gellately documents, the Nazi police state was repeatedly touted as a model for other nations to follow, so much so that Hoover actually sent one of his right-hand men, Edmund Patrick Coffey, to Berlin in January 1938 at the invitation of Germany’s secret police. As Gellately noted, “After five years of Hitler’s dictatorship, the Nazi police had won the FBI’s seal of approval.”
Indeed, so impressed was the FBI with the Nazi order that, as the New York Times revealed, in the decades after World War II, the FBI, along with other government agencies, aggressively recruited at least a thousand Nazis, including some of Hitler’s highest henchmen, brought them to America, hired them on as spies and informants, and then carried out a massive cover-up campaign to ensure that their true identities and ties to Hitler’s holocaust machine would remain unknown. Moreover, anyone who dared to blow the whistle on the FBI’s illicit Nazi ties found himself spied upon, intimidated, harassed and labeled a threat to national security.
So not only have American taxpayers been paying to keep ex-Nazis on the government payroll for decades but we’ve been subjected to the very same tactics used by the Third Reich: surveillance, militarized police, over-criminalization, and a government mindset that views itself as operating outside the bounds of the law.
This is how freedom falls, and tyrants come to power.
The similarities between the American police state and past totalitarian regimes such as Nazi Germany grow more pronounced with each passing day.
Secret police. Secret courts. Secret government agencies. Surveillance. Intimidation. Harassment. Torture. Brutality. Widespread corruption. Entrapment. Indoctrination. These are the hallmarks of every authoritarian regime from the Roman Empire to modern-day America.
Yet it’s the secret police—tasked with silencing dissidents, ensuring compliance, and maintaining a climate of fear—who sound the death knell for freedom in every age.
Just imagine what John could accomplish if he would drop out of the Corporate Law of the Sea, and form a common Law Firm. John, give up your esquire status and the whole damn country will be buying your books.

Life is indeed complicated and stressful! There is so much to do and so little time to do it. What with jobs, commutes, kids, homes, vacations, entertainment and sports, it’s so hard to pay much attention to what our government is doing. But just because we look the other way does not diminish the affect of government’s actions on our daily lives, much less our bank accounts.
Many of government’s actions are hard to see. Federal, state and local governments pass law after law and somehow we think we are immune from the consequences of those laws. Government is like a mosquito. You don’t feel the actual penetration of your skin, only the itch after the mosquito has withdrawn its blood-sucking straw and buzzed away. Come to think of it, government is very much like a mosquito with its blood-sucking taxes and zillions of rules, regulations, restrictions and ordinances that control every aspect of our lives. (the rules are the “itch” after the government has employed its weapon of choice by raiding your wallet ….. taxes.)
So what has government really done for you? Where do we start? Why not start with illegal immigration?
Your federal government (that’s the 545 people who control almost everything in America – a president, 435 representatives, 100 Senators and 9 Supreme Court Justices) has seen fit to encourage (indeed provide a magnet) illegal immigration by not enforcing existing law and sealing our borders, as they are mandated to do. We are absolutely convinced they have done so on purpose. And for their skullduggery we get to pay for it all. The price tag for schools, language tutors, medical treatment, anchor babies, social services and lost jobs to legal Americans by illegal aliens, has been estimated at nearly $300 to $500 Billion per year. We had no say in this policy, as our representatives and senators know what is best for us. Well, don’t they? Besides the cost, comes the premeditated, unconscionable erosion of our American sovereignty. And speaking of American sovereignty, let’s not forget NAFTA, CAFTA, the Transpacific Partnership (TPP) and the Security and Prosperity Partnership (North American Union).
Now let’s look at what the collusion of the radical, international environmentalists and the U. S. government together, have done for us.
1- The purposeful and unconstitutional theft of our property rights with environmental law after environmental law.
2- Severely restricts development of new crude oil resources on American soil for 30 years.
3- Stopped all construction of new power generation and refineries on American soil for 30 years.
4- Trying to take control of every mud puddle in America (Clean Water Restoration Act) – EPA rules).
5- Instituting an ill-conceived and dastardly policy to turn “food” into fuel.
6- Brainwashing the entire American population (including our children in public schools and colleges) into believing that we are the cause of the destruction of our planet and must give up our cars and our lifestyle and pay for CO2 emissions. (wealth redistribution)
7- Along with all this brainwashing comes the propaganda and lies of man-caused global warming.
8- The mandated institution of a National Animal Index System (NAIS) to register every animal and every premise in America, that might be harboring livestock or other animals. It’s been shelved for now but it will be back.
9- But worst of all comes the treasonous degradation of the foundation of our laws, our constitution, by integrating UN and European social and environmental policies into law by presidential executive order and without the debate and ratification of such additions to our laws by the U. S. Congress, as required by the constitution. And what is the result of the government’s collusion with the radical, international environmentalists? Rapidly accelerating costs of everything and the direct and inexcusable loss of our freedom and liberty.
Then we have the government’s monetary policy under the Federal Reserve. But then the Federal Reserve isn’t a government entity, is it? It is run by a bunch of elite bankers who tweak the supply of money (money that essentially has no intrinsic value) by moving the interest rate they charge other banks, up or down, in response to perceived events that they, in their infinite wisdom have determined that such changes are required. Unfortunately, they are usually wrong or go too far and set off a chain of events that they then try to over-correct and end up acting like a teenager just learning to drive. The Feds have the power to send us into a recession, or rapid inflation, or stagflation and they do. Who pays the price for their tomfoolery and their inability to properly make adjustments to a dynamic system? We do!
And of course, let’s not forget the government’s social policies. From the New Deal in the 1930’s to President Johnson’s Great Society, the blood-sucking government has eaten up trillions of our tax dollars to solve a problem (or is it buy votes with our money) that shows no signs of getting any better. In so doing, they have robbed the pride, self-reliance, independence and a can-do spirit out of millions of Americans who have sold their souls and their freedom for a piece of the American hard-working producer’s sweat equity. Instead of growing in independence, they have grown totally dependent. These folks that drink at the “well” of the government’s largess, become unproductive and an increasing load on the rest of us.
Finally, the good ‘Ole Federal government passes law after law that then filters down to state and local governments. This then creates law-driven symptoms that have us all running around like chickens with their heads cut off, trying to stop the state and local governments from making our lives even more miserable than the Feds have already done. In our actions to thwart these government-manufactured “symptoms”, we take our collective “eyes” off of the ball that is the direct cause of all these local symptoms; the 545 people that control everything in America. Socialists and radical environmentalists camp at government’s door, vying for any favor they can get from government, in return for money, votes, or perks offered by the lobbyists. Our system of government has become so corrupt that only a revolution can ever bring sanity to what is now hopelessly insane and out of control.
There is so much more that government has done for (or is it TO) us but there isn’t enough space here to describe them all. So what HAS government done for you? They have taken our pride, our hard-earned money and our liberty, for policies that far exceed the limits of commons sense, much less the individual, inalienable rights, that are the irrevocable gift of our creator.
But then, what with jobs, commutes, kids, homes, vacations, entertainment and sports, it’s so hard to pay much attention to what our government is doing.
Wasn’t it President Ronald Reagan who said. “The most terrifying words in the English language are: “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” He also said: “Government is not the solution. Government is the problem.”
If only government would just get out of the way and let the spirit of a free American people prosper and save themselves and the rest of the world, like some have said we were pre-ordained to do. The sad truth is that, government will not get out of the way unless the people force them.
We describe some of these conditions in our new video:

The sovereignty of America is vested in fifty nation-states. Both states and nations are political entities. Nations control the land jurisdiction. States control the sea jurisdiction.
People receive their nationality from where on the land they are born. We are Virginians, Ohioans, Wisconsinites and so on as a result. That is our “nationality”.
“Citizenship” is an entirely different thing. A “citizen” is subject (as in subject to a King or a government) to which they give allegiance.
You don’t have to be a “citizen”— that is, a subject, of anything.
When people agree to take up a public office or public employment, they agree to act as “citizens” for the term of their office.
Thus, if you work for or act as an elected official of the federal government, you agree to be a citizen of the United States. If you agree to work for the state government of Virginia, you are agreeing to be a “State Citizen” of Virginia for the term of your employment or office.
Joe Blow who is just working at a job in the private sector as a mechanic or a bank teller or a carpenter or in other professions and all the millions of small business owners are NOT naturally “citizens” of the United States and are not “citizens” of Virginia or Texas or any other state.
When you claim to be a “citizen” you are obligating yourself to obey all the laws and statutes of the corporation operating as the “United States” or the “United States of America” of the “State of Virginia” or whatever. This is essentially an employment contract. You have to obey the laws of this corporation because you agreed to be employed by them or because you were elected to an office in their organization, just like you might hold such an office in the hierarchy of Sears, or JC Penny or Walmart.
So now that it has been stated in such plain terms—- which one are you?
We Are All Indigenous Like It or Not
By Anna Von Reitz
Since I put out the call for “Caucasian Males above the age of 21” to stand up for their states of Union and assert “unimpeachable” claims on the land, I have had no end of ignorant people calling me up in a white hot lather about that, with all sorts of ugly assumptions in hand.
Just remember that the first part of “assumption” is “ass”.
Obviously, I am a woman, so I have no reason to like the idea of “only” males can do this. And also obviously, I am color blind, so I have no reason to like the idea of “white only” either.
The fact is that the treaties and agreements that need to be exercised to claim the land mass of this country were all written back in the 1700-1800s and the only people who had legal standing back then were “white males above the age of 21”.
The only people who can exercise a treaty are those who are party to it. Period.
The only ones who can exercise a treaty between the Cherokee Nation and the U.S. Government are the members of the Cherokee Nation and representatives of U.S. Government.
The government of Ireland can’t interfere.
And in this case, neither can women or blacks or Native Americans or recent immigrants. You and I and everyone outside the contract are just going to have to let those who are part of the contract have at it.
The only ones party to the statehood compacts back in the day were white males above 21 and as a result, they are the only ones who can raise their hands and claim to be successors to statehood agreements and contracts today.
That is the way it is and it has nothing to do with any racial prejudices today. It’s just a circumstance left over from things that happened 200 years in the past.
I have also had all sorts of so-called “indigenous” nations calling me up and griping and complaining and saying, —-well, we were here first!
I’m sorry. Every single Indian and Black American tested turns out to be from somewhere else in the world—– mainly Egypt and Asia and Africa—- but somewhere else. Not here. Not “indigenous”. You can go all away around the world, anywhere you choose, and the story is the same. Our ancestors moved around all over the place and nobody is truly “indigenous”. Even the true and isolated Aborigines in Australia have plenty of cross-breeding from all over the world.
And since the Doctrine of Discovery is universally recognized to be a pile of rubbish and an irrational lie from the get-go, it really doesn’t matter if your ancestors “discovered” North America 10,000 years ago or yesterday. The same is true in Africa, Europe, and Asia.
We are all here together and nobody has any more sacred claim on anything than anyone else, so everyone can stop the mad dash to claim the whole world for themselves and just their racial-ethnic-religious group.
It turns out that there is only one family of man.
Let’s pretend that the Arab nations are your left foot, and the British Nations are your right hand. Which one of them do you want to have cut off?
Tell me, please, so I can call the doctor and order the amputation right now.
My Great-Great-Grandfather owned half of Germany. His Will is 170 pages long, verified and on the public record. Want to whine to me about losses? Want to talk about claims?
But the fact remains that that was then and this is now, and he was he and I am me.
Give up these crazy delusions about living in the glories of the “past”. The past does not exist. It is dead and gone.
What we all have as a birthright is here and now.
What a lot of people seem to be missing is that “states” and “nations” co-exist. The life of one does not mean the death of the other.
The “Winnebago Nation” can and does co-exist with “Wisconsin”.
This is because these are all political entities—- associations, tribes, families, political parties, even corporations—groups, if you will, organized and recognized and peaceably doing their thing.
That is the way it should be so long as nobody is harming anyone else.
All those “indigenous” nations that are trying to beat the war drums and object to what is and questioning the rights of their white and hispanic and oriental and every other “nation” to be here and to have their homes and properties secured had better stop and think.
We all recognized you and your rights and said, yes, you have your place on the land. You have your Natural and Unalienable Rights. We all stand behind that. We guarantee that with our lives.
But please note— that doesn’t mean that you can suddenly “lord it over” anyone else. Your rights end where your neighbors begin.
Just because your Great-Grandfathers owned South Dakota doesn’t mean that you own it, anymore than I own Heidelburg. Time has moved on and so must we.
What is dead and gone, good or bad, exists only in memory and the injustices of the past do not justify creating more injustices today.
If you want to be blessed, you must be a blessing. That is the Law of the Universe and there is no other.
You can rant and rave and feel sorry for yourselves and what your ancestors suffered in the past, or you can look at what is right here and right now, and resolve to make this world a better place. You can parade around and say that because your Great-Great Grandfather owned this piece of paper or because he had a cabin here or because he had a pink pimple on the end of his nose that “entitles” you to this or that.
You can make any claim you want, and I could claim to own half of Germany, but the facts remain.
Everyone has been enslaved. Everyone has suffered. Everyone has a right and a claim to be here. Everyone.
That is not a matter of money or politics or any ancestral right nor of any external power at all. It’s simply a matter of fact that each one of us is utterly unique and that however we got here, we are here now, and it is up to us to love each other and respect the needs and rights of others if we want those same things for ourselves.
And that, too, is the Universal Law.
Think about the Inquisition, the Crusades, the 100 Years War, the Reformation, the Thirty Years War, the Civil War, the Genocide of the Indian Nations, the First World War, World War II, Northern Ireland, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and only God knows how many acts of genocide and misery and violence.
Everyone have a good nose-full of all that? Good. Now maybe we are ready and willing to leave that behind?
Let’s settle this whole claim of being “indigenous” right here and now. No matter what the color of our skin, we all came from Africa, long, long ago. So we are all Africans.
Go back far enough in the DNA chain and it all reduces down to that. That is the actual, factual, verifiable, indisputable truth.
There is one “indigenous” human race, and it is African: white Africans, red Africans, black Africans, brown Africans, Africans living in Tanzania, and Africans living in Piccadilly, Africans living in Stockholm, and Africans living in Rio and still more Africans living in Beijing.
So all the black Africans can stop hating the white Africans and the yellow Africans can stop ranting at the red, and the Muslim Africans can stop hating the Christian Africans, and we can all get our heads out of our butts.
There is nobody here but us chickens and the only unit of “human” is one each.
In truth and in fact, it’s just Anna and Joe and Sally and Xi Ping and Noriko and Esha and …… seven billion completely different, unique, beloved beings, each one the image and reflection of divinity.
When we hurt each other and steal from each other, and seek power over each other, and seek to deny the rights and needs of others—whatever the basis for that is, just or unjust, past or present—- we only hurt and steal from ourselves.
When you decide whether you want to amputate your left foot or your right hand, let me know.

I have wanted to write this for a long time but knew there are too many government addicts and it would be counter productive. Never the less, the following is my deep felt feelings about humanity and governments. First: I do believe Jesus Christ is GOD and the Bible is our only needed advice on how to live together in peace. So, if we obeyed the Ten Commandments there would be absolutely no need for any kind of government. It all boils down to, why anyone would want TO BE A CITIZEN! That is really being a subject! You have agreed to put a human being over GOD! And even if you don’t believe there is a sovereign GOD, why would you want to be a slave to another human or group of humans? Haven’t you witnessed enough stupidity in every kind of government yet? So it boils down to anarchy is really freedom, right? There is only one reason why anyone would disapprove of freedom, and that is because they want someone else to direct their lives besides GOD. Don’t think I am saying I am a good Christian because I have left plenty of proof on the internet that I’m not, but I do claim one thing and that is, I don’t need any government to be in control of my actions. I will happily help anyone I can, and defend any person I can who has not proven they deserve punishment. And I would be glad to distribute punishment to a hell of a lot of humans on this planet. Obuma, you son of a dog, the only reason I have not put a bullet between your black eyes is because of Jesus Christ: so maybe you should consider acknowledging HIM as GOD instead as alla.

Secretive group positioning itself to profit from upcoming economic meltdown
Paul Joseph Watson
For the second time in the space of ten years, the powerful Bilderberg group is plotting to trigger a financial collapse, with elitists already positioning themselves to profit from the next economic meltdown.
As we reported back in 2006 during the Bilderberg Group’s meeting in Ottawa, Canada, leaked information from an American delegate revealed that insiders were preparing for the housing bubble to burst and a global market crash.
Over the course of the next two years, that exact scenario played out, culminating in the collapse of Lehman Brothers and a worldwide recession.
As the global financial picture begins to look increasingly bleak, with worries about a Chinese stock market collapse triggering a wider panic, Bilderberg is once again scheming to benefit from the fallout, while the “precariat,” those who are living paycheck to paycheck, are set to suffer the most.
According to veteran Bilderberg sleuth and former BBC journalist Tony Gosling, globalists at this year’s confab in Dresden, Germany are scheming to re-position their assets to ensure they exploit the coming market turmoil.
“There’s another thing going on here in that these guys control most of the money in the western world….and we’re looking at the potential for a massive economic crash,” said Gosling, adding that there aren’t enough resources left to save failing banks, “so it could be a catastrophic crash.”
“Some people, like some of the people in here (Bilderberg), they can bet on which way the market’s going to go now based on derivatives and things like this and they can make a lot of money out of a crash, they can clean up a lot of distressed assets, so they will be looking possibly at making money from such a thing, which is a crazy situation for the world to be in now,” said Gosling.
Noting that the merger of large corporations has created monopolies that make it easier for those in power to control the market, especially with regard to food, Gosling said that cartels were now intent on strangling their competition.
“They know that by controlling the financial system that they can control the outcome of a crash and they can clean up on the rest of us,” he concluded.
Billionaire elitist George Soros has also stepped back into trading personally over the last few months as he prepares to exploit the chaos of Europe’s migration crisis and a possible Brexit vote for Britain to leave the EU later this month.
As Breitbart reports, Soros, who was responsible for crashing the pound in 1992, is also betting against the American stock market.
Given that Bilderberg discussed an economic collapse almost immediately before it began to unfold ten years ago, the revelation that the clandestine cabal is once again plotting to profit from a financial catastrophe should be taken seriously by everyone who will be impacted by the fallout from another market meltdown.

ICANN headquarters in Playa Vista, Los Angeles, California. (Wikipedia)
By: Glenn Chapman
TN Note: Privacy advocates, Internet users and legislators are battling the Obama Administration to stop the cessation of power to internationalists. Since the Internet is such a vital element of globalization, including the implementation of the UN’s 2030 Agenda, Technocrats see this as a necessary step. It is not yet clear where the handoff will end up, but most likely it will the the United Nations itself, although there may be one or two intermediaries in the meantime.
The Obama administration reportedly is getting behind a plan that would have the U.S. government relinquish its last bit of control over the Internet – a move Republican lawmakers are fighting tooth-and-nail.
The transfer was set in motion two years ago when a Commerce Department agency, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, said it would cede oversight over an obscure, but powerful, Los Angeles-based nonprofit called the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
The head of the agency, Lawrence Strickling, told AFP on Thursday the game plan they got back from ICANN – which would hand over the reins to a “multi-stakeholder” group, and not a single government – is now in line with what they want.
“The Internet’s multi-stakeholder community has risen to the challenge we gave them to develop a transition proposal that would ensure the Internet’s domain name system will continue to operate as seamlessly as it currently does,” Strickling said.
ICANN manages some of the most important elements of the Internet, including the domain name system and IP addressing. Domains include those tiny suffixes at the end of Internet addresses, like .com and .org; Internet Protocol addresses are the numerical sequences assigned to devices in a network.
Foreign governments had complained about the U.S. oversight, maintained through contracts with ICANN.
Yet the Obama administration has faced stiff resistance to a hand-off for months from vocal critics on Capitol Hill and in the tech community. One concern is that, in the void left by America’s transfer of oversight, other nations that don’t share the United States’ commitment to free speech and expression could make a grab at Internet influence.
On Wednesday, Republican Texas Sen. Cruz and Republican Wisconsin Rep. Sean Duffy introduced legislation to prevent the transfer of functions related to the Internet Domain Name System unless specifically authorized by Congress.
The Protecting Internet Freedom Act also aims to ensure that the U.S. maintains sole ownership of the .gov and .mil top-level domains.
“The Obama administration is months away from deciding whether the United States Government will continue to provide oversight over core functions of the Internet and protect it from authoritarian regimes that view the Internet as a way to increase their influence and suppress freedom of speech,” Cruz said in a statement. “This issue threatens not only our personal liberties, but also our national security. We must act affirmatively to protect the Internet and the amazing engine for economic growth and opportunity the Internet has become, and I urge my colleagues to support this legislation.”
In a press release, the lawmakers suggested the plan would “allow over 160 foreign governments to have increased influence over the management and operation of the Internet.”
Groups supporting the Protecting Internet Freedom Act include Americans for Limited Government, National Religious Broadcasters and Frontiers of Freedom.
Strickling reportedly is not calling his agency’s endorsement of the plan a formal “approval” yet – but if Washington stamps the plan, AFP reported, the U.S. government contract with ICANN would expire at the end of September. The plan reportedly is meant to prevent any single government from taking control and is not predicted to cause major changes for ordinary Internet users.
The push to transfer oversight dates back years.

This article was written by Joshua Krause and originally published at The Daily Sheeple
There’s one thing that all gun-grabbing politicians have in common. They are all quite adamant that they don’t want to take your guns. They’ll tell you over and over again that all they want is a few reasonable regulations. Every once in a blue moon they’ll let their guard down in front of an reporter, and reveal their true long-term intentions, but by and large they’re always trying to put a reassuring face on their gun grabbing agenda.
Obama, for instance, has consistently claimed throughout his presidency that all he wants is a few “reasonable” restrictions, and that all he intends to do is keep guns out of the hands of “bad guys.” Whenever he talks about it, however, you can read between the lines and find his ulterior motives.
At a recent Town Hall meeting, Obama was put on the spot by gun store owner, who asked him why he wants to restrict gun use for law-abiding citizens. The video has since gone viral among liberals who think that the president gave a stellar response. In reality, he merely showed us his true colors.
“First of all, the notion that I or Hillary or Democrats or whoever you want to choose are hell-bent on taking away folks’ guns is just not true,” he claims “And I don’t care how many times the NRA says it.” Obama then goes on to make the case for restricting gun ownership for people who find themselves on the no-fly list, and cites an example of someone who has been visiting ISIS websites but is still allowed to buy firearms.
So sir I just have to say respectfully, that there is a way for us to have common sense gun laws. There is a way for us to make sure that lawful responsible gun owners like yourself, are able to use them for sporting, hunting, protecting yourself. But the only way we’re going to do that is if we don’t have a situation in which anything that is proposed is viewed as some tyrannical destruction of the Second Amendment.
Unfortunately, his idea to restrict gun ownership for people on the no-fly list is exactly the kind of thing that could lead to the tyrannical destruction of the Second Amendment. In a perfect world it would be nice if we could keep guns away from terrorists, but restricting the gun rights of people who are on the no-fly list is anything but reasonable or “common sense.”
That’s because literally anyone can find themselves on the no-fly list. You don’t have to commit a crime and you don’t need to visit any suspicious websites. They can take away your right to travel freely without any due process whatsoever. At best, all the government needs to do is hear that you might have some sympathies for a terrorist organization, and you’ll be barred from being on a plane for life.
As Techdirt.com pointed out last year, more than a third of the people on the no-fly list have no known terrorist affiliations. If Obama’s plan were ever put in place, you could lose your right to bear arms over nothing more than a hunch or a rumor.
Leaks to the Intercept revealed that the “process” by which people are put on either the no fly list or the terrorist watch list basically involves hunches, and revelations from just a few months ago show that DHS still uses flim flam pseudo science to put people on the list based on hunches that the government laughably calls “predictive judgment,” but which experts have said has no scientific basis whatsoever.
If you want to understand how incredibly wrong this proposal is, you just need to replace “buy guns” with something else, like “the right to assemble” or “the right to use the internet.” It’s easy to say: “What could possibly be the argument for allowing a terrorist suspect to use the internet?” But then you remember that these aren’t actual suspects — they’re just people put on a list by law enforcement with no thorough process, let alone due process to defend themselves or to get off the list. And, of course, being a “suspect” doesn’t mean you’re guilty. Innocent until proven guilty used to actually mean something.
And let’s not forget, that our government has a very broad definition of “terrorist,” and has in the past claimed that conservatives, libertarians, veterans, and Christians should be watched closely for their supposed terrorist potential (i.e., the groups that are most likely to own firearms).
Sorry Obama, but you’re a gun grabber plain and simple. At best, perhaps, you’re ignorant of what your proposal could do to our rights, and at worse you’re lying to the American people. You know exactly what a “no-buy list” would lead to. Furthermore, the fact that more guns were sold during your administration than any other in history does not prove that you’re not trying to take our guns, it’s only proof that you’ve failed to take them. You can sugarcoat your anti-Second Amendment vision, and claim that you just want to make us all a little safer, but we know what your ideas would do to our rights.

TN Note: How do you feel about the UN’s statement that “Global citizens need to fulfill the basic values of humanity. They need to be proactively involved in solving global issues”? Are you ready to trade your U.S. citizenship for global citizenship? Well, they want you, your family and your children to do so, and they will stop at nothing to force you to comply. Will you resist?
At the opening ceremony, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon highlighted that the contribution of NGOs, academia and youth will be key to achieving the SDGs, for without the participation of NGOs and civil society groups, no initiative, however visionary, can be fully achieved.
“I am such a strong believer in NGOs, I constantly call on governments to expand space for you to operate,” said the Secretary-General in his address to conference delegates. “Four days ago, at the Jeju Forum for Peace and Prosperity, I denounced shrinking democratic space and I urged freedom for civil society organizations and human rights defenders. Unfortunately, that freedom is under threat, including at the last place this should happen: at the United Nations. I call on Member States to stop constricting NGO engagement.”
In his address, Prime Minister of the Republic of Korea, Mr. Kyo-ahn Hwang reaffirmed the country’s commitment to fostering global citizenship.
“We worked very hard so that global citizenship was reflected in the SDGs,” said Prime Minister Hwang. “Global citizens need to fulfil the basic values of humanity. They need to be proactively involved in solving global issues.
This conference, under the theme of ‘Education for Global Citizenship: Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals Together’ will encourage people to become involved.”
The conference, held from 30 May to 1 June 2016, is being underpinned by three pillars: Formal Education; Informal Education and Training; and Advocacy and Public Information, which will be examined as a means to eliminate inequalities that create barriers to learning.
Over the next three days, the round table discussions, workshops and youth caucuses will focus on education as an entry point for implementing and achieving the SDGs, culminating in an action agenda for NGOs and academia, to concentrate efforts and catalyze successful implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
Cross cutting themes such as gender equality and climate change will be a strong focus, along with importance of learning from marginalized and vulnerable groups, including indigenous people and the LGBT community.
Co-Chairs of the conference, Dr. Scott Carlin, Associate Professor of Geography at Long Island University and Dr. YuKang Choi, NGO Representative to the United Nations for Dream Touch for All, highlighted that the conference is an important opportunity to raise awareness and mobilize civil society around the SDGs.
“The NGO/DPI Conference will bring the civil society voice to the United Nations, and foster NGO support for implementation of the 2030 Agenda,” said Dr. Carlin.
“This is the first time the conference is being hosted in Asia, providing an opportunity for NGOs in the region to tap into networks and enhance their ability to lobby governments for commitment to SDG implementation,” added Dr. Choi.
More than 2000 people were in attendance for the opening session. The conference is being organized in cooperation with the NGO/DPI Executive Committee, the Government of the Republic of Korea and the National Organizing Committee of Korea.
What they are really promoting is a Global Social Cancer, that plagiarizes the works of Satan. Eventually everyone will worship the New World Order except for those few who prefer death to slavery. I find it amazing how stupid and compliant humanity has already become. If real patriotism was as alive as it was in the beginning, there would be blood in the streets of D.C.

It seems the UK government has officially turned into Big Brother.
Recently, the UK government passed a shocking piece of legislation – a “hate speech” law that prohibits “hate speech” on social media and carries a sentencing of “re-education camps” for offenders. The re-education camps were proposed in the US and circulated by an online manual,
but now the UK has actually activated them.
So who defines what is and isn’t hate speech? Is someone’s personal opinion about a politician hate speech or is it free speech?
Is it someone’s “opinion” that Downing Street bureucrats forged academic papers about WMDs to fraudulently invade and go to war with Iraq – or is it hate speech?
On top of that, Tony Blair and Bush talked about going to war with Iraq an entire year prior to the invasion – or is that hate speech?
According to the new legislation, conspiracy theories are a form of hate speech. So holding our government accountable for its asinine behavior is now hate speech punishable by law in the UK. What happened to the duty to keep tyranny in check? To make sure fascist laws like this don’t pass?
In another display of outright insanity the UK government in 2013 wanted to completely ban pornography under the pretense that it would better protect children. Hold on this is the same UK government that is embroiled in accusations of pedophilia in Parliament right? Interestingly enough, David Cameron’s aide Patrick Rock who had this brilliant idea to protect children was arrested for indecent images of children and child pornography. This bill to ban pornography was also nicely wrapped with a secret snuck in passage to “ban conspiracy theories.” Most bills usually have some legislation hidden in the piles of pages that most lawmakers in the US and UK never bother to read. This is seen by US Congressman Stephen Cohen’s reaction to Jesse Ventura’s Question about the “residential centers” and the FEMA bill text in HR645.
Cohen first continuously denies knowing anything about the bill making jokes about aliens, then he says, “Oh yes I remember now those camps are for emergency situations like Katrina I think that’s what it is.”
Jessie goes on to say speaking to the viewer:
“You think that’s what it is? You can see how things work in Washington, Congressmen sponsor bills because they are told to or they get money for their district. If we speak out maybe next time we can talk to our leaders before they sign on the dotted line.”
This is just one of several available examples of Congressmen not reading a bill and sponsoring or co-sponsoring a bill. Even recently, Congressman x admitted he never reads bills he votes on. That is exactly why we need to get rid of lobbying and why it should be viewed as legal bribery.
Back in 2014, Cameron made a little speech about how conspiracy theories fuel extremist violence. I wonder how much research David Cameron did on these so called “conspiracy theories?”
Has Mr. Cameron, who said “We Need a New World Order,” disavowed Agenda 21? Agenda 21 is an overthrow of an elected government similar to how Prescott Bush tried to overthrow FDR as warned by General Smedley Butler? Prescott Bush, the Bush dynasty father, also funded Hitler. His bank was tied to funding the Nazis. So maybe these are the psychopaths who should be in the dissident camps?
If you ever care to pick up a book or read and research, Mr. Cameron, Mossad is documented deliberately blowing up the USS Liberty , the US chiefs of Staff are Documented wanting to fly planes into buildings, and shoot civilians in Falseflag operations to go to war with Cuba – look up Operation Northwoods . Which John F. Kennedy Stopped and fired Army Chief of Staff George Decker and General Lyman L. Lemnitzer and appointed General Earle Wheeler and General Maxwell D. Taylor.
NATO is another documented agency running a Falseflag called Operation Gladio killing innocent civilians over the years. You would be insulting our intelligence if you said otherwise and wanted us to forget about such horrific historical actions because there may be as you call them “Conspiracy Theories,” but there are also very well document-able events that are bonifiable Facts.
So if you want the trust of the people I suggest you start answering and not dodging the hard questions like admitting you are a tax evading criminal. If its criminal for citizens to
evade taxes its criminal for you to horde money in an offshore account. Oh and no Mr. Cameron, this isn’t hate speech its advice, any government that opts to put its citizens in any form of a camp is a hair away from being the next Nazi SS regime and a dictatorship.
We already had a dictator named Hitler we don’t need a second Hitler. Maybe your Mama never taught you the saying but i think this ought to be taught in the UK, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”
Words are not missiles Mr. Cameron, words do not cause violent extremism, failed government foreign policy in the middle east is what causes violent extremism.
David Cameron’s quoted as saying:
“We must defeat this Ideology in all its forms, as evidence emerges of backgrounds of those convicted of terrorist offenses, its clear that many of them were influenced by preachers who claim not to encourage violence but who’s world view can be used as a justification for it.
We know this world view, the peddling of lies that 911 was somehow a Jewish plot or that the 7/7 London attacks were staged.
The idea that Muslims are prosecuted all over the world as a deliberate act of western policy. We must be clear to defeat the ideology of extremism we need to deal with all forms of extremism not just violent extremism. For governments there are some obvious ways to do this, we must ban preachers of hate from coming to our countries, we must proscribe organizations that incite terrorism at home and abroad.
We must work together to take down illegal online material like the recent video’s of Isil murdering hostages, and we must stop the so called non-violent extremist from inciting hatred and intolerance in our schools, university’s and yes even our prisons.
Of course some would argue that this is not compatible with free speech and intellectual inquiry.”
Well now David Cameron got his wish, as conspiracy theorists who deny the Holocaust, can be imprisoned. I don’t deny the Holocaust personally (I think that it happened but the death count was exaggerated), but I also feel its absolute hypocrisy that people who deny the Holocaust are being sent to a “Dissident re-training camp” which is a nice way of saying concentration camp when that’s where Jewish people were sent to die. Also who wrote such an insane piece of legislation? Why does it seem to be focused on Judaism? Do the same rules apply for the Zionist, who’s world view is everyone but them are inferior and that even fellow Jewish people are expendable? Calling out blatant Zionism isn’t anti-Semitism, if anything the Zionists are
In Fact, this Cabal has already made it self known, through you Mr. Cameron you said
“Conspiracy theories of a powerful Jewish cabal or a Western plan to destroy Islam must be challenged in efforts to counter radicalization”
Why would you say that? Very strange choice of words suspicious indeed, I don’t think there is a Jewish cabal or western plan to destroy Islam more so an elite mafia of Zionist gangsters who
want to control the world.
I hope these Internment Camps have bottom and top bunks! Will there be forced vaccination centers for all the disobeying plebians?

By P.C. Roberts:
Washington’s opportunity came when the corrupt Brazilian elite illegally removed the elected president from office in order to stop government investigations of their illegal activities. Washington approved the coup with the provision that Washington’s Wall Street allies would control Brazil’s financial offices.
The BRICS are now reduced to the RICS, and Washington also has targeted (India) and (South Africa). Russia and China should expect disinformation from Washington designed to cause mutual suspicion and to erode their alliance.

Wall Street Behind Brazil Coup d’Etat
By Prof Michel Chossudovsky
Url of this article:
Control over monetary policy and macro-economic reform was the ultimate objective of the Coup d’état. The key appointments from Wall Street’s standpoint are the Central Bank, which dominates monetary policy as well as foreign exchange transactions, the Ministry of Finance and the Bank of Brazil (Banco do Brazil).
On behalf of Wall Street and the “Washington consensus”, the interim post coup “government” of Michel Temer has appointed a former Wall Street CEO (with U.S citizenship) to head the Ministry of Finance.
Henrique de Campos Meirelles, a former President of FleetBoston Financials Global Banking (1999-2002) and former head of the Central Bank under Lula’s presidency was appointed minister of finance on May 12.
Ilan Goldfajn [Goldfein] appointed to head the Central Bank, was chief economist of Itagui, Brazil’s largest private bank. Goldfajn [Goldfein] has close ties to both the IMF and the World Bank. He is a financial crony of Meirelles.
Brazil’s currency system under the Real is heavily dollarized. Internal debt operations are conducive to a rising external debt. Wall Street is intent upon maintaining Brazil in a monetary straightjacket.
Since the government of Fernando Henrique Cardoso, Wall Street has exerted control over key economic appointments including the Ministry of Finance, the Bank of Brazil and the Central Bank. Under the governments of Fernando Henrique Cardoso and Luis Ignacio da Silva (Lula), the appointment of the governor of the Central Bank was approved by Wall Street.
Arminio Fraga: president of the Central Bank (4 March 1999 – 1 January 2003) hedge fund manager and associate of George Soros, Quantum Fund, New York, Dual Citizenship Brazil-US.
Henrique de Campos Meirelles, President of Central Bank, ( January 1, 2003 – January 1, 2011). Dual Citizenship Brazil-US.
President and COO of Bank Boston (1996-99) and President of FleetBoston Financials Global Banking (1999-2002). In 20o4, FleetBoston merged with Bank America. Prior to the merger with Bank America, FleetBoston was the Seventh largest Bank in the US. Bank America is currently the second largest bank in the US.
After having been dismissed by Dilma in 2010, Meirelles made a come back. He was appointed Minister of Finance by the “interim President” Michel Temer.
Ilan Goldfajn, chief economist of Itaú, Brazil’s largest private bank. Goldfajn [Goldfein] was appointed by Michel Temer interim “government” to head the Central Bank. (May 16, 2016). Dual Citizenship Israel-Brazil.
Goldfajn had previously worked at the Central Bank under Arminio Fraga as well as under Henrique Mereilles. He has close personal ties to Prof. Stanley Fischer, currently Vice-Chair of the US Federal Reserve. Needless to say Golfajn’s appointment to the Central Bank was approved by the IMF, the US Treasury, Wall Street and the US Federal Reserve.
It is worth noting that Stanley Fischer had previously held the position of Deputy Managing Director of the IMF and Governor of the Central Bank of Israel. Both Fischer and Goldfajn are Israeli citizens, with ties to the pro-Israel lobby.
In early 1999, in the immediate wake of the speculative onslaught against Brazil’s national currency (Real), the president of the Central Bank Professor Francisco Lopez (who had been appointed on January 13th Black Wednesday 1999) was sacked shortly thereafter and replaced by Arminio Fraga, a US citizen and employee of George Soros’ Quantum Fund in New York.
“The fox had been appointed to guard the chicken coop”.
More concretely Wall Street speculators were in charge of Brazil’s monetary policy.
Under Lula, Henrique Campos de Meirelles was appointed President of the Central Bank of Brazil. He had acted previously as president and CEO within one of Wall Street’s largest financial institutions.
FleetBoston was the second largest creditor of Brazil, after Citigroup. To say the least, he was in conflict of interest. His appointment was agreed upon prior to Lula’s accession to the presidency.
Henrique Meirelles was a staunch supporter of Argentina’s controversial Plan Cavallo in the 1990s: a Wall Street “stabilization plan” which wreaked economic and social havoc. The essential structure of Argentina’s Cavallo Plan was replicated in Brazil under the Real Plan, namely the enforcement of a dollarised convertible national currency (Real). What this scheme implies is that the internal debt is transformed into a dollar denominated external debt.
Upon Dilma’s accession to the presidency in 2011, Meirielles was not renewed as president of the Central Bank.
Sovereignty in Monetary Policy
Finance Minister Mereilles under the interim “government” supports the so-called “independence of the Central Bank”. The application of this fake concept implies that the government should not intervene in Central Bank decisions. But there are no restrictions on “Wall Street Foxes”.
The issue of sovereignty in monetary policy is crucial. The objective of the coup d’état was to deny Brazil’s sovereignty in the formulation of macro-economic policy.
Wall Street Fox
Under Dilma, the “tradition” of selecting a “Wall Street fox” had been abandoned with the appointment of Alexandre Antônio Tombini, a career government official, who headed the Central Bank of Brazil from 2011 to May 2016.
Upon Michel Temer’s accession as “interim president”, Henrique Campos de Meirelles was appointed to head the Ministry of Finance. In turn, Meirelles appointed his own cronies to head the Central Bank and the Banco do Brasil. Meirelles was described by the US media as “market friendly”.
Michel Temer’s Economic appointments:
Henrique de Campos Meirelles, Minister of Finance,
Ilan Golfajn, President of the Central Bank of Brazil, crony appointed by Meirelles
Paulo Caffarelli, Bank of Brazil, crony appointed by Meirelles
What is at stake through various mechanisms–including intelligence ops, financial manipulation, media propaganda–is the outright destabilization of Brazil’s state structure and national economy, not to mention the mass impoverishment of the Brazilian people.
The US does not want to deal or negotiate with a sovereign reformist nationalist government. What it wants is a compliant US proxy state.
Lula was “acceptable” because he followed the instructions of Wall Street and the IMF.
While the neoliberal policy agenda prevailed under Rousseff, a reformist-populist agenda was also implemented which departed from the Wall Street sponsored macroeconomic mainstay during the Lula presidency. According to IMF’s Managing Director Heinrich Koeller (2003) Lula was “Our best president”:
“I am enthusiastic [with Lula’s administration]; but it is better to say I am deeply impressed by President Lula” (IMF Press Conference, 2003).
Under Lula, there was not need for “regime change”. Luis Ignacio da Silva had endorsed the “Washington Consensus”.
The temporary demise of Henrique de Campos Meirelles following the election of Dilma Rousseff was crucial. Wall Street had not approved Dilma’s appointments to the Central Bank and the Ministry of Finance.
If Dilma had chosen to retain Henrique de Campos Meirelles, the Coup d’Etat would most probably not have taken place.
The US Proxy Regime in Brasilia
A former CEO/president of one of America’s largest financial institutions (and a US citizen) controls Brazil’s key financial institutions and sets the macroeconomic and monetary agenda for a country of more than 200 Million people.
It is called a Coup d’Etat… by Wall Street.

We hope to soon have The Puzzle Project up and running– a national level fact-finding mission in support of Public Interest Litigation before the World Court and the UN Trust Committees.
This work only suffers from the common ailment— we all face a LARGE fraud and its attendant criminality which has taken root in so many countries and in so many sectors of society that it is natural to see the “tree” — the so-called judicial system in the U.S. — without grasping the larger picture.
The problem isn’t just the judicial system running hopelessly amok.
It’s the fact that all so-called “governments” are actually nothing but privately owned and operated “governmental services corporations” being run by international banking cartels that have operated under conditions of secrecy and deceit to co-opt lawful government and instigate a vast web of fraud and criminality throughout the world. It’s not just the Federal United States. It’s the “government” of the UK, CANADA, FRANCE, GERMANY, AUSTRALIA, JAPAN….. all fakes. The truth has come out finally and conclusively.
There are so many people to thank for that, it beggars description….the rats have been fully and absolutely exposed. The criminality of the banking system has been fully documented by The Paradigm Project— Heather Tucci-Jaref and others. A few American lawyers remained true to the American cause and a few DOD employees did too, and they all did theiractual jobs. As a result, the bankers are caught, dead in the water.
And the fraud is at an end, no longer something that can be suppressed and contained by filthy politicians and bankers meeting in secret.
The rats in DC are in a bad position, and more and more of them are realizing it. 177 nations worldwide have recognized that the “Federal United States” has acted as a criminal syndicate and that it has been operating in a form and in a way forbidden by its charter and the treaty and trust documents allowing its existence, so that it has not faithfully “represented” the Continental United States and the American People, but has instead been misusing and abusing Americans at home and then also misusing American resources including the Armed Forces as Bullies against other countries, fomenting war for profit, and engaging in every kind of vice and war profiteering in “target countries.”
While we Americans have been kept ignorant and clueless by the perpetrators of these fraud schemes (all of which are easily
recognized as classic bunko schemes executed on an unimaginably large scale) what I would most like to share with the rest of the
world at this point is that the American People — the People of theContinental United States as opposed to some elements operating the Federal United States —-are good people, moral people, peace-loving, hard-working, God-fearing people. We were lied to, bullied, purposefully deceived, taxed to death, deprived of basic rights guaranteed by our actual Constitution, press-ganged into theinternational jurisdiction of the sea, and defrauded of our labor and
our actual property assets. We suffered along with the rest of the world.
Those responsible include the Crown Corporation and its agencies and subsidiaries, the government of the Inner City of London aka WESTMINSTER, the Lord Mayor, the Lords of the Admiralty, the British Monarch dba ELIZABETH II, IMF, FEDERAL RESERVE, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC., and so on. Please note that the British Monarch is the American International Trustee on the High Seas and Inland Waterways and that all the abuse we have suffered and which the rest of the world has endured, too, has been caused by British mismanagement and war-mongering for profit.
The other thing I would like the world to know is that many American government officials, even members of Congress, were kept in the dark. This entire criminal scheme was designed to be operated by just a few at the top.
Finally, I would like the rest of the world to know that preliminary estimates indicate that only about 20% of the money appropriated to fund domestic American welfare relief ever made it to any poor people, and less than 2% of the money appropriated as foreign aid ever made it to the intended recipients in other countries.
The American People have been defrauded and had the lion’s share of their intended assistance to others at home and abroad siphoned off to fund criminal activities.
The facts are now speaking for themselves. Anyone who wants to argue with me or cast aspersions and suspicions at me as an individual should be advised— I am not here to prove anything to anyone and I am not the issue. The issue is the information. The facts.
The timeline. The fraud. Everyone in receipt of the information has the basic tools necessary to research these matters for themselves and they are fully invited to perform their own due diligence.
Numerous people from around the world have been contacting me and asking for help related to their own governments. The basics of what we have learned (at least to our satisfaction) is that the System was introduced in England in 1867 by Benjamin D’israeli, with legislation resulting in the “enfranchisement” of English workers.At the time, this was hailed as a good thing by English Labor Union leaders and other Progressives who were deceived into thinking that the “right to vote” was an advancement of the position of the working class.
It was in fact a means of further and officially enslaving the working class by a process of registration.
If you look up the legal meaning of the word “registration” you will learn that anytime you register something you are giving it or some aspect of it up to the ownership or control of the entity keeping the registration. It is not the same as publicly recording an ownership interest in a piece of property, for example. Thus, when you “register to vote” you give up your natural right to elect your leaders and in effect hand your proxy over to whomever cares to exercise it.
The word “enfranchisement” relates to this undisclosed registration process, too, in terms of “enfranchised voters”, but more darkly, it is used in the context of incorporation—- and that is what D’israeli aimed at with the Acts of Parliament involving Enfranchisement.
Think of large corporations that are operating in your various countries that have local franchises. In America, it might be
McDonald’s or Dairy Queen or Sears. These corporate franchises are obligated to be pretty much in lock-step with their national and international parent corporations and they operate under franchise licenses. Anytime you see the word “license” be aware that it is official permission to do something that would otherwise be illegal— in this case, the franchises receive the license to use the name, logo, recipes, products, etc., of the franchising corporation.
What does it mean to “enfranchise” a human being, in this sense of “enfranchisement”?
It means to reduce you to an incorporated thing, a subsidiary subject to the whims of corporate management. It means enslavement, body and soul. In supposedly equitable exchange you receive the benefit of voting for your slave masters and whatever privileges they give you, the right to be taxed and regulated to death, the right to be conscripted, the right to pay for a million dollar life insurance policy with the parent corporation named as your beneficiary, and so many other so-called “benefits” it hardly pays to name them.
This is what we have been dealing with. Thanks to Benjamin D’israeli and a besotted Queen Victoria.
It also means that the banks, the Bar Associations, the Lords of the Admiralty and the Lord Mayor and the Queen engaged in a systematic program of press-ganging land assets into the international jurisdiction of the sea. This crime has been outlawed—utterly outlawed worldwide— for 200 years. It carries the death penalty and they did it anyway, using a pathetic excuse.
Once they had “converted” all the living people and their estate interests into franchises of the various governmental services
corporations, they could claim that they were justified in their actions because there is no law against enslaving a corporation.
In actual practice and fact, of course, they did enslave the living people and all their private property assets. This is how they were
able to enforce “Selective Service” and other forms of “The Draft” during the Second World War. This is how they have been able to spend uncontrollably and rack up huge amounts of odious debt against the civilian populace.
By registering your birth, seizing control of your name, and creating all sorts of corporate franchises benefiting their own corporations named after you— they–the bankers and lawyers and politicians
effectively stole your identity and your credit cards.
Now we come to the issue of Odious Debt. Odious Debt is debt created by fraud of which the victims are unaware and from which they do not benefit. Much of the so-called “National Debts” around the world are this form of debt, and Odious Debt is not collectible.
It must be written off and forgiven. This is what is behind Pope Francis’s declaration of an International Year of Jubilee beginning
December 8, 2015.
Beyond that, we also come to the issue of National Credit. All these fiat money systems have been operated as debt-credit systems. Every time you create a debt in such a system you also create a credit.
Therefore, every National Debt is counterbalanced by a NationalCredit.
Why have you never heard about your National Credit, only your National Debt? Because the perpetrators fully intended to leave the working people holding the bag while they siphoned off and absconded with not only the National Credit owed, but the underlying actual physical assets as well.
They won’t be able to do that now, because now you know the truth about “National Debts” and how those National Debts were accrued by credit fraud, and you also know that you are owed an equal National Credit.
Finally, everyone worldwide needs a lesson in the mechanisms of fraudulent convertible debt. A fraudulent convertible debt is a debt created by fraud that is converted into new ownership and used by the perpetrators as investment capital. The most typical example is the billing you receive every month for electrical service (at least in America this is true).
What appears to be a bill comes addressed to YOUR NAME in capital letters and your address. Unknown to you, this “billing statement” isn’t really a true bill and it isn’t addressed to you. It is addressed to a franchise of a governmental services corporation and the “statement” is actually a voucher allowing you to cash in a “dividend” equal to the amount shown as due and owing— but of course, you are never told this and you are never told how to fill out the coupon for credit. Instead, if you don’t submit payment you are threatened with disconnection, and in this way, you are coerced into paying the bills of a governmental services corporation’s franchise.
Of course, the utility company submits the bill each month directly
to the “government” and gets paid for servicing the franchise. That’s payment Number One. Then they send you a billing statement and coerce you to pay it.
That’s payment Number Two. They establish a “capital credits account” in YOUR name and deposit your payment in that account. They then use that money as investment capital benefiting their utility company and prevent you from accessing the capital credit account you funded. In some cases, the utilities are so crooked they set the “capital credits” aside and later claim that they are “unclaimed funds” and abscond with them directly.
Fraudulent convertible debt always involves a double-dipping system in which a charge gets paid for twice by different parties. In effect, it gets you, the consumer, both coming and going. You are on the hook to pay for the “government’s debts” — so as a group you paid for payment Number One, and as an individual you were forced to provide payment Number Two as well.
The same exact system of fraudulent convertible debt is used throughout the mortgage industry. When you create a mortgage, it is
never credited to you— it is registered in YOUR NAME— as being owned by a government franchise operated under your name, but not belonging to you. Remember that the governmental services corporation is the owner of YOUR NAME, which is the incorporated franchise they are running for their own benefit under your name without your knowledge or consent.
So you walk in to close what you are told is a loan being made to you,and what happens? The bank takes your Promissory Note, which has Actual Cash Value, just like a stack of bank notes, and they cash it.
That’s payment Number One, charged off against “the government”, which of course passes the entire cost back to you and your brethren in the form of taxation. Then the bankers come back under false pretense that they actually loaned you something, and demand that you pay them back principal and interest for thirty years and claim that you also owe them a security interest in your property (which you gave them, albeit under conditions of fraud and deceit and non-disclosure) which they can foreclose upon if you fail to perform.
That’s payment Number Two—so, in effect, the banks charge you once, then charge you twice, plus interest, plus a security interest that is undeserved—and you fund all of it. You fund the first payment through your taxes to the “government” and you fund the second through more of your labor “donated” to the account of YOUR NAME and what really, did you
You received access to credit in a bank account held in YOUR NAME, but not actually belonging to you, and you spent that credit on a home and property that is recorded in YOUR NAME but which doesn’t actually belong to you, either. Both the purported debt and the property belong to the governmental services corporation’s franchise.
You are just an unpaid volunteer, doing all the work and producing all the credit to fund these operations, for the benefit of the franchise. It’s more usury, only this time, owing to the interest payments and security interest, it’s more like quadruple dipping than double dipping.
And all this blatant fraud based on semantic deceits and coercion and racketeering and deceptively similar names has gone on under the noses of all those you trusted to regulate banking and securities, precisely because the banks were running the “governmental services corporations” behind the scenes and were “regulating themselves.”
So what is the answer? Other than becoming aware yourself, spread the word. There will be too many of us for them to silence and once people know what went on, they will be stuck for it.
And what to do about replacing these criminal enterprises
masquerading as governments? Well, we all know how our governments are supposed to be operated and by whom, and for most of us, that means we have to get involved.
The Americans are busy restoring their actual government on the land jurisdiction of the Continental United States. It’s our understanding that Mrs. Merkel is doing her best in Germany and that numerous other heads of state are grappling with the facts and trying to bring remedy without bloodshed or disruption. Help them. We are informing the members of Congress that they have been elected to private corporate offices instead of public offices which they are meant to serve and that this has been accomplished by fraud and deceit. They have to choose their true allegiance and accept their true elected office in order to serve and represent the interests of the Continental United States as deputies and fiduciary officers—-and they otherwise have no capability to enter into any valid contract in our behalf or claim to represent anyone but themselves and their own little group of cronies.
Meantime back home we are occupying the vacated public offices we are owed and we are operating our state and county governments as judges, sheriffs, bailiffs, clerks, legislators, and many other public offices under American Common Law.
Action is moving forward on an international basis to end the criminality, expose the fraud, and bring relief. Please keep your
minds and hearts fixed upon what is good and right and just, and realize that the vast majority of the people who have been employed by these corporations have been innocent of the evil they have unwittingly done. Even many lawyers and judges are completely unaware that they were doing anything wrong. To echo Jesus Christ, “Forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
–—although they are going to learn very shortly, and be offered a choice!
In closing, I would like to paraphrase King George V — “Keep calm and get even.” Don’t give way to rage or violence of any kind. Realize that your grievances have been fully documented and proven and that the Mills of God grind slowly but exceedingly fine. Those who are truly guilty cannot escape, those who have acted in error must be forgiven, and the innocent who have suffered will in the end beblessed by their own patience and kindness.

Muhammad Ali: ‘What’s My Name?’
The three-time world champion boxer Muhammad Ali has died. Current and former New York Times reporters and columnists talk about their memories of him and how he became an international icon.

Muhammad Ali, the three-time world heavyweight boxing champion who helped define his turbulent times as the most charismatic and controversial sports figure of the 20th century, died on Friday in a Phoenix-area hospital. He was 74.
His death was confirmed by Bob Gunnell, a family spokesman.
Ali was the most thrilling if not the best heavyweight ever, carrying into the ring a physically lyrical, unorthodox boxing style that fused speed, agility and power more seamlessly than that of any fighter before him.
But he was more than the sum of his athletic gifts. An agile mind, a buoyant personality, a brash self-confidence and an evolving set of personal convictions fostered a magnetism that the ring alone could not contain. He entertained as much with his mouth as with his fists, narrating his life with a patter of inventive doggerel. (“Me! Wheeeeee!”)
Ali was as polarizing a superstar as the sports world has ever produced — both admired and vilified in the 1960s and ’70s for his religious, political and social stances. His refusal to be drafted during the Vietnam War, his rejection of racial integration at the height of the civil rights movement, his conversion from Christianity to Islam and the changing of his “slave” name, Cassius Clay, to one bestowed by the separatist black sect he joined, the Lost-Found Nation of Islam, were perceived as serious threats by the conservative establishment and noble acts of defiance by the liberal opposition.
Loved or hated, he remained for 50 years one of the most recognizable people on the planet.

A Look Back at the Greatest
A Look Back at the Greatest

In later life Ali became something of a secular saint, a legend in soft focus. He was respected for having sacrificed more than three years of his boxing prime and untold millions of dollars for his antiwar principles after being banished from the ring; he was extolled for his un-self-conscious gallantry in the face of incurable illness, and he was beloved for his accommodating sweetness in public.
In 1996, he was trembling and nearly mute as he lit the Olympic caldron in Atlanta.
That passive image was far removed from the exuberant, talkative, vainglorious 22-year-old who bounded out of Louisville, Ky., and onto the world stage in 1964 with an upset victory over Sonny Liston to become the world champion. The press called him the Louisville Lip. He called himself the Greatest.
Ali also proved to be a shape-shifter — a public figure who kept reinventing his persona.
As a bubbly teenage gold medalist at the 1960 Olympics in Rome, he parroted America’s Cold War line, lecturing a Soviet reporter about the superiority of the United States. But he became a critic of his country and a government target in 1966 with his declaration “I ain’t got nothing against them Vietcong.”
“He lived a lot of lives for a lot of people,” said the comedian and civil rights activist Dick Gregory. “He was able to tell white folks for us to go to hell.”
But Ali had his hypocrisies, or at least inconsistencies. How could he consider himself a “race man” yet mock the skin color, hair and features of other African-Americans, most notably Joe Frazier, his rival and opponent in three classic matches? Ali called him “the gorilla,” and long afterward Frazier continued to express hurt and bitterness.
If there was a supertitle to Ali’s operatic life, it was this: “I don’t have to be who you want me to be; I’m free to be who I want.” He made that statement the morning after he won his first heavyweight title. It informed every aspect of his life, including the way he boxed.
The traditionalist fight crowd was appalled by his style; he kept his hands too low, the critics said, and instead of allowing punches to “slip” past his head by bobbing and weaving, he leaned back from them.
Eventually his approach prevailed. Over 21 years, he won 56 fights and lost five. His Ali Shuffle may have been pure showboating, but the “rope-a-dope” — in which he rested on the ring’s ropes and let an opponent punch himself out — was the stratagem that won the Rumble in the Jungle against George Foreman in 1974, the fight in Zaire (now the Democratic Republic of Congo) in which he regained his title.
His personal life was paradoxical. Ali belonged to a sect that emphasized strong families, a subject on which he lectured, yet he had dalliances as casual as autograph sessions. A brief first marriage to Sonji Roi ended in divorce after she refused to dress and behave as a proper Nation wife. (She died in 2005.) While married to Belinda Boyd, his second wife, Ali traveled openly with Veronica Porche, whom he later married. That marriage, too, ended in divorce.
Ali was politically and socially idiosyncratic as well. After the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, the television interviewer David Frost asked him if he considered Al Qaeda and the Taliban evil. He replied that terrorism was wrong but that he had to “dodge questions like that” because “I have people who love me.” He said he had “businesses around the country” and an image to consider.
As a spokesman for the Muhammad Ali Center, a museum dedicated to “respect, hope and understanding,” which opened in his hometown, Louisville, in 2005, he was known to interrupt a fund-raising meeting with an ethnic joke. In one he said: “If a black man, a Mexican and a Puerto Rican are sitting in the back of a car, who’s driving? Give up? The po-lice.”
But Ali had generated so much good will by then that there was little he could say or do that would change the public’s perception of him.
“We forgive Muhammad Ali his excesses,” an Ali biographer, Dave Kindred, wrote, “because we see in him the child in us, and if he is foolish or cruel, if he is arrogant, if he is outrageously in love with his reflection, we forgive him because we no more can condemn him than condemn a rainbow for dissolving into the dark. Rainbows are born of thunderstorms, and Muhammad Ali is both.”

Ambition at an Early Age
Cassius Marcellus Clay Jr. was born in Louisville on Jan. 17, 1942, into a family of strivers that included teachers, musicians and craftsmen. Some of them traced their ancestry to Henry Clay, the 19th-century representative, senator and secretary of state, and his cousin Cassius Marcellus Clay, a noted abolitionist.

My two heroes are Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali. Malcolm was perfection and Ali was flawed. But both were men. They spoke the unvarnished truth…

Ali’s mother, Odessa, was a cook and a house cleaner, his father a sign painter and a church muralist who blamed discrimination for his failure to become a recognized artist. Violent and often drunk, Clay Sr. filled the heads of Cassius and his younger brother, Rudolph (later Rahman Ali), with the teachings of the 20th-century black separatist Marcus Garvey and a refrain that would become Ali’s — “I am the greatest.”
Beyond his father’s teachings, Ali traced his racial and political identity to the 1955 murder of Emmett Till, a black 14-year-old from Chicago who was believed to have flirted with a white woman on a visit to Mississippi. Clay was about the same age as Till, and the photographs of the brutalized dead youth haunted him, he said.
Cassius started to box at 12, after his new $60 red Schwinn bicycle was stolen off a downtown street. He reported the theft to Joe Martin, a police officer who ran a boxing gym. When Cassius boasted what he would do to the thief when he caught him, Martin suggested that he first learn how to punch properly.
Cassius was quick, dedicated and gifted at publicizing a youth boxing show, “Tomorrow’s Champions,” on local television. He was soon its star.
For all his ambition and willingness to work hard, education — public and segregated — eluded him. The only subjects in which he received satisfactory grades were art and gym, his high school reported years later. Already an amateur boxing champion, he graduated 376th in a class of 391. He was never taught to read properly; years later he confided that he had never read a book, neither the ones on which he collaborated nor even the Quran, although he said he had reread certain passages dozens of times. He memorized his poems and speeches, laboriously printing them out over and over.
Muhammad Ali’s Words Stung Like a Bee, Too
Outside the boxing ring, Ali fought his battles with his mouth.
In boxing he found boundaries, discipline and stable guidance. Martin, who was white, trained him for six years, although historical revisionism later gave more credit to Fred Stoner, a black trainer in the Smoketown neighborhood. It was Martin who persuaded Clay to “gamble your life” and go to Rome with the 1960 Olympic team despite his almost pathological fear of flying.
Clay won the Olympic light-heavyweight title and came home a professional contender. In Rome, Clay was everything the sports diplomats could have hoped for — a handsome, charismatic and black glad-hander. When a Russian reporter asked him about racial prejudice, Clay ordered him to “tell your readers we got qualified people working on that, and I’m not worried about the outcome.”
“To me, the U.S.A. is still the best country in the world, counting yours,” he added. “It may be hard to get something to eat sometimes, but anyhow I ain’t fighting alligators and living in a mud hut.”
Ali would later cringe at that quotation, especially when journalists harked back to it as proof that a merry man-child had been misguided into becoming a hateful militant.

Cassius Clay Wins an Olympic Gold Medal
Muhammad Ali’s first mention in The New York Times was a piece on winners at the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome. He won the gold medal in the light heavyweight boxing division.

Of course, after the Rome Games, few journalists followed Clay home to Louisville, where he was publicly referred to as “the Olympic nigger” and denied service at many downtown restaurants. After one such rejection, the story goes, he hurled his gold medal into the Ohio River. But Clay, and later Ali, gave different accounts of that act, and according to Thomas Hauser, author of the oral history “Muhammad Ali: His Life and Times,” Clay had simply lost the medal.
Clay turned professional by signing a six-year contract with 11 local white millionaires. (“They got the complexions and connections to give me good directions,” he said.) The so-called Louisville Sponsoring Group supported him while he was groomed by Angelo Dundee, a top trainer, in Miami.
At a mosque there, Clay was introduced to the Nation of Islam, known to the news media as “Black Muslims.” Elijah Muhammad, the group’s leader, taught that white people were devils genetically created by an evil scientist. On Allah’s chosen day of retribution, the Mother of Planes would bomb all but the righteous, and the righteous would be spirited away.
Years later, after leaving the group and converting to orthodox Islam, Ali gave the Nation of Islam credit for offering African-Americans a black-is-beautiful message at a time of low self-esteem and persecution. “Color doesn’t make a man a devil,” he said. “It’s the heart and soul and mind that count. What’s on the outside is only decoration.”

Title and Transformation
Clay enjoyed early success against prudently chosen opponents. His outrageous predictions, usually in rhyme — “This is no jive, Cooper will go in five” — put off many older sportswriters, especially since most of the predictions came true. (The Englishman Henry Cooper did go down in the fifth round at Wembley Stadium in 1963, after he had staggered Clay in the fourth.) The reporters’ beau ideal of a boxer was the laconic Joe Louis. But they still wrote about Clay. Younger sportswriters, raised in an age of Andy Warhol, happenings and the “put on,” were delighted by the hype and by Clay’s friendly accessibility.
In 1963, at 21, after only 15 professional fights, he was on the cover of Time magazine. The winking quality of the prose — “Cassius Clay is Hercules, struggling through the twelve labors. He is Jason, chasing the Golden Fleece” — reinforced the assumption that he was just another boxer being sacrificed to the box office’s lust for fresh meat. It was feared he would be seriously injured by the baleful slugger Liston, a 7-to-1 betting favorite to retain his title in Miami Beach, Fla., on Feb. 25, 1964.
But Clay was joyously comic. Encouraged by his assistant trainer and “spiritual adviser,” Drew Brown, known as Bundini, Clay mocked Liston as the “big ugly bear” and chanted a battle cry: “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, rumble, young man, rumble.”

The Beatles, on their first American tour, were in town and showed up for a photo op at Clay’s training gym. Malcolm X, a leading minister for the Nation of Islam and a worrisome presence to many white Americans, was there, too, with his family members as guests of Clay, whom they saw as a big brother.
To the shock of the crowd, Clay, taller and broader than Liston at 6 feet 3 inches and 210 pounds and much faster, took immediate control of the fight. He danced away from Liston’s vaunted left hook and peppered his face with jabs, opening a cut over his left eye. Clay was in trouble only once. Just before the start of the fifth round, his eyes began to sting. It was liniment, but he suspected poison. Dundee had to push him into the ring. Two rounds later, Liston, slumped on his stool, his left arm hanging uselessly, gave up. He had torn muscles swinging at Clay in vain.
Clay, the new champion, capered along the ring apron, shouting at the press: “Eat your words! I shook up the world! I’m king of the world!”
The next morning, a calm Clay affirmed his rumored membership in the Nation of Islam. He would be Cassius X. (A few weeks later he became Muhammad Ali, which he said meant “Worthy of all praise most high.”) That day he harangued his audience with a preview of what would, over the next few years, become a series of longer and more detailed lectures about religion and race. This one was about, as he put it, “staying with your own kind.”
“In the jungle, lions are with lions and tigers with tigers,” he said. “I don’t want to go where I’m not wanted.”
The only prominent leader to send Ali a telegram of congratulations was the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“I remember when Ali joined the Nation of Islam,” Julian Bond, the civil rights activist and politician, once said. “The act of joining was not something many of us particularly liked. But the notion he’d do it — that he’d jump out there, join this group that was so despised by mainstream America, and be proud of it — sent a little thrill through you.”
The thrills gave way to darker thoughts. After Malcolm X left the Nation and was assassinated on Feb. 21, 1965, by members of the group, there was talk that Ali had been tacitly complicit. Jack Newfield, a political journalist with an interest in boxing, wrote, “If Ali, as the new heavyweight champion, had remained loyal to his mentor, and continued to lend his public support to Malcolm, history might have gone in a different direction.”

Refusing to Be Drafted
On Feb. 17, 1966, a day already roiled by the Senate’s televised hearings on the war in Vietnam, Ali learned that he had been reclassified 1A by his Louisville selective service board. He had originally been disqualified by a substandard score on a mental aptitude test. But a subsequent lowering of criteria made him eligible to go to war. The timing, however, was suspicious to some; the contract with the Louisville millionaires had run out, and Nation members were taking over as Ali’s managers and promoters.
“Why me?” Ali said when reporters swarmed around his rented Miami cottage to ask about his new draft status. “I buy a lot of bullets, at least three jet bombers a year, and pay the salary of 50,000 fighting men with the money they take from me after my fights.”
But as the reporters continued to press him with questions about the war, the geography of Asia and his thoughts about killing Vietcong, he snapped, “I ain’t got nothing against them Vietcong.”
The remark was front-page news around the world. In America, the news media’s response was mostly unfavorable, if not hostile. The sports columnist Red Smith of The New York Herald Tribune wrote, “Squealing over the possibility that the military may call him up, Cassius makes himself as sorry a spectacle as those unwashed punks who picket and demonstrate against the war.”
Most of the press refused to refer to Ali by his new name. When two black contenders, Floyd Patterson and Ernie Terrell, insisted on calling him Cassius Clay, Ali taunted them in the ring as he delivered savage beatings.

On April 28, 1967, Ali refused to be drafted and requested conscientious-objector status. He was immediately stripped of his title by boxing commissions around the country. Several months later he was convicted of draft evasion, a verdict he appealed. He did not fight again until he was almost 29, losing three and a half years of his athletic prime.
They were years of personal and intellectual growth, however, as Ali supported himself on the college lecture circuit, offering medleys of Muslim dogma and boxing verse. In the question-and-answer sessions that followed, Ali was forced to explain his religion, his Vietnam stand and his opposition (unpopular on most campuses) to marijuana and interracial dating. Now the “onliest boxer in history that people asked questions like a senator” developed coherent answers.
During his exile from the ring, Ali starred in a short-lived Broadway musical, “Big Time Buck White,” one of several commercial ventures. There was a fast-food chain called Champburger and a mock movie fight with the popular former champion Rocky Marciano in which Ali outboxed the slugger until being knocked out himself in the final round. The broadcaster Howard Cosell, one of Ali’s most steadfast supporters in the news media, was responsible for keeping him on television, both as an interview subject and as a commentator on boxing matches.
As Ali’s draft-evasion case made its way to the United States Supreme Court, he returned to the ring on Oct. 26, 1970, through the efforts of black politicians in Atlanta. The fight, which ended with a quick knockout of the white contender Jerry Quarry, was only a tuneup for Ali’s anticipated showdown with Frazier, the new champion. But it was a night of glamour and history as Coretta Scott King, Bill Cosby, Diana Ross, the Rev. Jesse Jackson and Sidney Poitier turned out to honor Ali. The Rev. Ralph Abernathy presented him with the annual Dr. King award, calling him “the March on Washington all in two fists.”
“The Fight,” as the Madison Square Garden bout with Frazier on March 8, 1971, was billed, lived up to expectations as an epic match. With Norman Mailer ringside taking notes for a book and Frank Sinatra shooting pictures for Life magazine, Ali stood toe to toe with Frazier and slugged it out as if determined to prove that he had “heart,” that he could stand up to punishment. Frazier won a 15-round decision. Both men suffered noticeable physical damage.
To Ali’s boosters, the money he had lost standing up for his principles and the beating he had taken from Frazier proved his sincerity. To his critics, the bloody redemption meant he had finally grown up. The Supreme Court also took a positive view. On June 28, 1971, it unanimously reversed a lower court decision and granted Ali his conscientious-objector status.

Resurgence and Decline
It was assumed now that Ali’s time had passed and that he would become a high-grade “opponent,” the fighter to beat for those establishing themselves. But his time had returned. Although he was slower, his artistry was even more refined. “He didn’t have fights,” wrote Jim Murray of The Los Angeles Times, “he gave recitals.”
He won 13 of his next 14 fights, including a rematch with Frazier, who had lost his title to George Foreman, a bigger, more frightening version of Liston.
Ali was the underdog, smaller and seven years older than Foreman, when they met on Oct. 30, 1974, in Zaire, then ruled by Mobutu Sese Seko. Each fighter was guaranteed $5 million, an extraordinary sum at the time. The fight also launched the career of the promoter Don King and was the subject of Leon Gast’s documentary “When We Were Kings,” which was released more than 20 years later. (Ali attended a special screening, along with hip-hop performances, at Radio City Music Hall.) The film won a 1997 Academy Award.
Ali reveled in the African setting, repeating an aphorism he had heard from Brown, his assistant trainer: “The world is a black shirt with a few white buttons.”

Milestones and career highlights of Ali, a showman in and outside of the boxing ring.
As the fight progressed, the crowd chanted, “Ali, bomaye!” (“Ali, kill him!”), first out of concern as Ali leaned against the ropes and absorbed Foreman’s sledgehammer blows on his arms and shoulders, and then in mounting excitement as Foreman wore himself out. In the eighth round, in a blur of punches, Ali knocked out Foreman to regain the title. He leaned down to reporters and said, “What did I tell you?”
On Dec. 10, 1974, Ali was invited to the White House for the first time, by President Gerald R. Ford, an occasion that signified not only a turning point in the country’s embrace of Ali but also a return of the Lip. Ali told the president, “You made a big mistake letting me come because now I’m going after your job.”
Ali successfully defended his title 10 times over the next three years, at increasing physical cost. He knocked out Frazier in their third match, the so-called Thrilla in Manila in 1975, but the punishment of their 14 rounds, Ali said, felt close to dying.
In 1978 he lost and then regained his title in fights with Leon Spinks. Ali’s longtime ring doctor, Ferdie Pacheco, urged him to quit, noting the slowing of his reflexes and the slurring of his speech as symptoms of damage. Ali refused. In 1980, he was battered in a loss to the champion Larry Holmes. A year later, he fought for the last time, losing to the journeyman Trevor Berbick in the Bahamas.
Ali was soon told that he had Parkinson’s syndrome. Several doctors have speculated that it was brought on by too many punches to the head. The diagnosis was later changed to Parkinson’s disease, according to his wife, Lonnie. She said it had been brought on by Ali’s exposure to pesticides and other toxic chemicals at his training camp in Deer Lake, Pa.

A Champion Is Celebrated
After retiring from the ring, Ali made speeches emphasizing spirituality, peace and tolerance, and undertook quasi-diplomatic missions to Africa and Iraq. Even as he lost mobility and speech, he traveled often from his home in Berrien Springs, Mich. Product and corporate endorsements brought him closer to the “show me the money” sensibilities of Michael Jordan and Tiger Woods, the heirs to his global celebrity.
In 1999, Ali became the first boxer on a Wheaties box. On Dec. 31 that year, he rang out the millennium at the New York Stock Exchange. In 2003, a $7,500 art book celebrating his life was published. His life was the subject of a television movie and a feature film directed by Michael Mann, with Will Smith as Ali. (Both productions sanitized his early religious and political viewpoints.) The same licensing firm that owned most of Elvis Presley’s image purchased rights to Ali’s.
Thomas Hauser, his biographer, decried the new “commercialism” surrounding Ali and “the rounding off the rough edges of his journey.” In a book of essays published in 2005, “The Lost Legacy of Muhammad Ali,” Hauser wrote, “We should cherish the memory of Ali as a warrior and as a gleaming symbol of defiance against an unjust social order when he was young.”

In recent years, Parkinson’s disease and spinal stenosis, which required surgery, limited Ali’s mobility and ability to communicate. He spent most of his time at his home in Paradise Valley, Ariz., often watching Western movies and old black-and-white TV shows. He ventured out mostly for physical therapy, movies and concerts. He rarely did TV interviews, his wife said, because he no longer liked the way he looked on camera.
“But he loved the adoration of crowds,” she said. “Even though he became vulnerable in ways he couldn’t control, he never lost his childlike innocence, his sunny, positive nature. Jokes and pranks and magic tricks. He wanted to entertain people, to make them happy.”
He was right all along!
HE WAS THE GREATEST!

This rule destroys neighborhoods, home values and private property rights. As I’ve reported to you before, through this rule HUD is strip searching every neighborhood in the nation to determine income levels, race and ethnic balance, even religious affiliations.
Government bureaucrats then determine if the neighborhood is “in balance” according to HUD rules. If not, HUD forces the city to build government subsidized housing and then plucks people out of their lower income neighborhoods and forces them to move into this housing.
WHERE DO YOU THINK OBUMA INTENDS TO PUT THE SO CALLED “REFUGEES” AS THEY FLOOD OUR NATION? THIS IS THE METHOD THEY WILL USE TO CHOOSE LOCATIONS!
Worse, AFFH gives federal bureaucrats the power to dictate these regulations – regardless of what your local officials want for your community.
That fact effectively eliminates local control.
YOU elected your city council or county commission to guide your community the way you and your neighbors want it run. But HUD doesn’t care. HUD intends to rule over your community and force these policies regardless of your wants.
IT’S ALL BECAUSE YOUR COMMUNITY TOOK HUD GRANTS! Now you will pay for that “free” money.
Already HUD has filed legal actions against communities like Westchester County, New York and Marin County, California simply because they did not want to participate in these HUD programs.
In Baltimore, Maryland the city has been forced to spend $30 million to target affluent neighborhoods and force low income subsidized housing onto them.
This will destroy the property values that the home owners have worked so hard to establish.
Landlords have lost their ability to decide who they want to live in their rental property.
HUD has warned communities that it intends to strongly enforce the AFFH rules. In the name of “civil rights” HUD may well force communities to “import” the lowest levels of society into middle class neighborhoods. This could actually result in drug dealers, brothels and crack houses moving onto your street.
And you will have no say in the matter.
The bottom line is this…
Unless we stand up now, the HUD AFFH program will destroy local rule and there will be no private property or single family homes left in the nation.
THAT IS THE GOAL OF AGENDA 21/AGENDA 2030!
Remember, Agenda 21 means the reorganization of human society through “social justice.” That means top down control and the enforcement of redistribution of wealth and social engineering. This is not Freedom!
This is the result of too many local representatives thinking HUD grants are FREE money.
IT IS NOT FREE MONEY – IT IS ENSLAVEMENT OF OUR COMMUNITIES!
I am working with others to build opposition to AFFH. But we need help to succeed.
U.S. Senator Mike Lee of Utah continues to try to defund the AFFH program. So far, his efforts have been stopped by Senate Leader Mitch McConnell. But Senator Lee is determined to keep fighting. I will meet with his staff next week to discuss further plans.
Within the next month the American Policy Center will sponsor a special, invitation only phone meeting for elected officials and candidates to discuss an effective plan to stop AFFH and other related Sustainable Development/Agenda 21 policies.
My goal is to help these representatives develop the tools they need to fight back and then to spread that plan across the nation.
The most positive news I can give you is that for the first time elected representatives are starting to understand the threat and seek ways to fight back.
I received two such calls today.
APC’s efforts are vital to stop this outrage and restore property rights and limited government.
Will you help me continue this fight with a contribution to APC today?
No other organization has been as dedicated or as effective in this fight as APC. My articles and publications have been the source of information for thousands of Americans who now stand against Agenda 21 policies.
Now we have hundreds of leaders speaking out across the country.
You and I have got to step up our efforts. I can only do that with your continued support. The battle is growing fierce and people are becoming more desperate as the government grows more out of control.
They need answers. And they need my help.
I know that we can and we will stop them! All it takes is an energized movement with the right tools to help citizens understand the problem so they can effectively fight back.
But only with your help can the American Policy Center supply both!

The New Republic v. The Old Republic: An Analogous Story
You decide to take your wife out for her birthday to the finest restaurant in town. At first everything seems normal. Somewhere between the second and third course, however, the head waiter and two of the waitresses strip naked. They just go on about their jobs, but you can tell from your wife’s face and the silent glances being passed by other patrons that no, you are not losing your mind and imagining things. Some other naked waiters roll curtain partititions in, sectioning off a portion of the restaurant and soon, behind that flimsey partition, a real live orgy begins. You know what is going on. Everyone in the room knows what is going on. You can hear it— the thumping and bumping, the sex talk, the moaning and sighing. It’s obvious, and yet, except for the naked waitresses, everything on your side of the restaurant goes on as normal.
You pass glances with your wife, and with the guy at the table next to you. He shrugs and goes on eating. You find yourself wondering things like— are orgies against the law in California? Does it matter if its a public or private orgy? How do you define “public” and “private”? You are in shock, but your salad is served and you pick up your fork. Your wife follows your lead. Just as you are beginning to taste the tomato and wrap your head around this circumstance, two uniformed policemen show up. You think— “Thank God!” You assume that they know the law and are going to address the situation, but no, to your amazement, they strip naked and disappear behind the partition, too.
The Governor and his wife and a group of celebrities arrive, the mayor of your fair city—- and they all do the same thing. They all strip naked in front of your incredulous eyes and disappear behind that partititon. Another naked waitress appears and asks if you would like dessert? From the catatonic look on your wife’s face you shake your head and ask for the bill. When the waitress returns with your credit card she leans way over in a suggestive manner and puts her naked nipple about three inches away from your lips. Your wife looks like she is about to stand up and smack someone— either the waitress or you, and you aren’t sure which.
Driving home your mind is still in a welter. The whole thing is so bizarre. You look up the California Statutes and yes, it would appear that orgies are illegal, but who would you tell? The police — at least some of them — are obviously participating, and perhaps more important, so is their boss and their bosses’ boss. The crime has been committed. You are a witness to it, but what can you do about it? You are just one man and you have no public office or authority—and those you elected and entrusted to enforce the law are the ones breaking it.
That’s the situtation we are all in with the Fed and the IMF and the members of Congress. We know they’ve broken the law and also failed to enforce the existing law ten ways to Sunday, but nobody knows what to do about it. Even after you come out of your daze and admit to yourself that you saw what you saw and heard what you heard, who is going to believe you? And once you do convince your friends and neighbors that you aren’t just imagining it, you are still stuck with the question of what can you do about it?
You go back to the restaurant despite your better judgment (and your wife’s objections) to snoop around. The waitresses are wearing their clothes and business appears normal. You get one of the women to talk to you and to your amazement, she tells you that this happens once a month the day after the New Moon. You ask her— doesn’t it concern you that this is against the law in the State of California? She blinks and says, yes, but it’s not against the law in Anaheim. Anaheim passed a Private Law Statute legalizing orgies once a month, so it’s perfectly legal.
Again, you mind reels. And in the days to come, you learn that the Governor suggested this to the Mayor and the Mayor defined a special population of the people living within Anaheim city limits as the voters, and they all happened to be porn shop owners and prostitutes and pimps, so of course, the measure passed by a large margin. It appears to be perfectly legal and yet it is undeniably against the Public Law.
This is analogous to the whole situation we face in this country, where private corporate law is being enforced using public funds, but the Public and Organic Law of this country is being ignored or enforced only on a “discretionary” basis.
As your research continues you learn that the orgies are all paid for out of public funds. The restaurant has a contract to provide the service once a month. All the restaurant employees who choose to participate are hired as special consultants and paid $25,000 a month plus a uniform expense allowance of $5000 each for one night of “work” per month. You keep collecting the black and white proof of all this and nobody can believe it. They look at the documents. They hear the testimony, but it all has an air of unreality to it.
As you proceed along your path as one of the Tin Hat Brigade, the shock begins to wear off and the certainty that you have been grossly disserved and defrauded grows. A sense of outrage takes root. You find out that the Governor has committed gross crimes and so has the President of the corporation he works for. You find out that the people you elected in good faith to serve in public office are serving in private corporate offices instead, and the courts and judges and police all work for this same corporation —so they aren’t going to stick their necks out and enforce the Public Law, either.
There’s nobody left to do it but you, Jaimie. Even though you go on paying the salaries of all these scum bags, you have to do to the job you hired them to do.
If you want the Public Law enforced, you have to organize your friends and neighbors and form a Jural Assembly and operate your county government on the land jurisdiction of California. Why? Because back in the 1950’s and 60’s the crooks operating the then-State of California organization agreed to incorporate that organization as a franchise of the UNITED STATES, (INC.) They did this so they could receive kick-backs called “Federal Revenue Sharing” and “Block Grants”. In doing this, they merged their version of state and county government into the federal government structure and destroyed the Checks and Balances required by our system of government and did an end-run around our Constitution—– and nobody said a word.
They all just considered it a private business management decision. The rest of us call it treason.
Your mind is still reeling when you learn that in addition to all this, the parent corporation colluded with its new franchises calling themselves the “State of….” and the “STATE OF…..” and the “COUNTY of….” to “register” you as property belonging to them—- literally claimed you as chattel backing their debts. They seized control of your name using a bogus undisclosed private adhesion contract forced upon your unknowing Mother at the hospital when you were born and they charged your credit to the limit when you were still just a babe in your cradle. When they had exhausted your credit, they started extrapolating their debts onto the backs of your unborn children. They enslaved you under a private corporate system of “law” despite the actual Public Law against slavery, just like the “private law” allowing orgies in Anaheim.
In this case, the insolvent UNITED STATES and its parent corporation, the French-chartered IMF, are utterly responsible for these outrages, and so is the French Government that chartered the IMF and allowed it to commit all these crimes on American soil and throughout the world.
So all this has been done by a private, mostly foreign-owned corporation merely under contract to provide your state of the Union with stipulated governmental services, and while they have been doing that, they have also been pillaging your wealth and mischaracterizing your political status and corrupting your courts and operating in complete disrespect of the Public and Organic Law of this country.
No wonder then, that when the IMF sponsored UNITED STATES went insolvent, those of us who were awake and proudly wearing our Tin Hats wasted no time in declining the French Government’s offers to create a “NEW REPUBLIC” for us, and instead announced to the world that we have made other arrangements and are restoring our rightful government— the Old Republic, thank you very much— on the land of these United States.
We are no longer going to pay taxes, tithes or fees for services that we are not receiving. And we aren’t going to patronize organizations that fail to operate in good faith and in accord with our Public and Organic Laws.
If this is all just “business” and “business management decisions” then consider that the actual beneficaries of the Public Trusts have put their feet down and said in very clear terms that the Public and Organic Law of this country is to be enforced against all private corporate “law” that isn’t in full compliance with it and that all the whores in Anaheim are officially off the public payroll. And although we have paid off the “National Debt” of the United States with our equal “National Credit”—– there’s going to be a helluva charge back for all the unauthorized charges to our accounts.
Our contract with the world is The Declaration of Independence. Our union of states is The Articles of Confederation 1781. Our Public Trust is the United States Trust 1779. We are the people of the fifty sovereign nation-states: Alaskans, Ohioans, Virginians, Nevadans—- not some Euro-Trash “inhabitants” merely “residing” in our states under treaties that they are ignoring and commercial contracts that they have abused and dishonored.
Every “law enforcement” agent and every “judge” in every administrative “court” and Admiralty court in America needs to be informed of these facts via Judicial Notice. Every politician, too.
