Every time Microsoft releases a new version of an operating system, there�s always a few users bitterly unhappy at the company�s decision not to support new features on older products. Microsoft has finally listened to these die-hard devotees of older operating systems. If you felt like Windows 7 and Windows 8 offered you a little too much privacy, rejoice: Microsoft is updating those operating systems with the same telemetry gathering software it deployed on Windows 10.
What? You wanted DirectX 12?
Ghacks.net has discovered four KB updates for Windows 7 and 8, each of which is described as an �Update for customer experience and diagnostic telemetry.� Each is detailed below:
KB 3068708: This update introduces the Diagnostics and Telemetry tracking service to existing devices. By applying this service, you can add benefits from the latest version of Windows to systems that have not yet upgraded. The update also supports applications that are subscribed to Visual Studio Application Insights.
KB 3068708 is listed as collecting diagnostics about functional issues on systems that take part in the Customer Experience Improvement Program. Determining whether or not you are a member of the CEIP, however, is less than obvious. The KB also notes that �Most programs make CEIP options available on the Help menu, although for some products, you might have to check settings, options, or preferences menus.� This is a recommended Windows update.
KB 3022345: This update has been superseded by KB 3068708, but previously provided the same telemetry-tracking services. It�s not clear how the two updates differ, but if you want to remove all traces of telemetry tracking, you�ll want to remove this update as well.
KB 3075249: This update adds telemetry points to the User Account Control (UAC) feature to collect information on elevations that come from low integrity levels. What this appears to mean is that MS wants more information about the kinds of applications that trigger UAC in the first place, presumably because it wants to know what they do and why they need that access. This update is classified as Optional.
KB 3080149: This update is described in identical language to the first two. �This package updates the Diagnostics and Telemetry tracking service to existing devices. This service provides benefits from the latest version of Windows to systems that have not yet upgraded. The update also supports applications that are subscribed to Visual Studio Application Insights.� It is provided as an Optional update, even though the first was classified a �Recommended� update.
Hard-coded phoning home
One of the assumptions made by various privacy advocates and journalists, including me, is that third-party utilities would be able to shut down the tracking Microsoft deployed in Windows 10. To some degree, that�s already happened, but there are certain new �features� of Windows 10 that can�t be blocked by any OS-level tweaks, including the hosts file. The updates listed above connect to vortex-win.data.microsoft.com and settings-win.data.microsoft.com. These addresses are hard-coded to bypass the hosts file and cannot be prevented from connecting. It�s been reported that software firewalls aren�t sufficient to block them, though this is unclear. (See update above).
It�s not clear if setting this flag in Windows 7 still disables all telemetry with the new patches installed.
The only way to block some of these connections is if your router has a firewall you can configure and if that firewall allows you to block HTTPS connections instead of simply passing them through. Some users have reported that they can block these connections, but plenty of other devices can�t, at least not completely. It�s still possible to reduce the amount of information flowing to Microsoft, but disabling it completely seems to be impossible unless you build a software router or replace your current hardware with a dedicated box.
Windows 7�s GPEdit.msc contains a setting that allows users to disable all application telemetry, and another setting that can shut off user participation in the Consumer Experience Improvement Program. Whether these options continue to function after the latest patches isn�t known. Users who do not wish to send Microsoft their own telemetry should uninstall the updates and tell Windows Update to hide them from now on.
Update (8/31/2015): This post originally reported that a firewall can�t be used to block the Windows connections that bypass the hosts file. There appears to be confusion on this point as to whether the ranges can be blocked on Windows 10 or not and conflicting reports on how the Windows Firewall treats such rules. We discussed the situation with Ars Technica�s Peter Bright, who has confirmed that these new connections can be blocked. Reports that they can�t be may have been confused or related to different OS settings.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS ON COP SHOOTERS
Whoa there folks. The solution to tyranny, is not being a tyrant, it’s being an informed American with enough guts to go to the top with your complaints. It’s the jerks at the top of the food chain that need to be done away with………………..IN A COMMON LAW COURT!
Killing cops is not going to do anything but create more killer cops. It is the fault of the jerk in the white house, and his advisers, and the State Governors who want more and more federal money.
You do not gain anything with murdering cops that have been brain-washed. All you do is make them feel justified.
Don’t misunderstand what I am saying here because I am as infuriated with these ass-holes as much as anyone, because they should know better than to lower their public standing, and their superiors should be fired for letting it happen. I don’t for a second support these rogue cops and would love to be their legal executioner, but you gain nothing by lowering yourself to their level. It’s the assholes at the top; and don’t forget it. Human nature, and the propaganda we have been exposed to is going to make it impossible to recover if we do not exercise some self-control. As for the attitude of low level police, it is apparent that they feel justified because of constant exposure to the criminal element and their training. Take this to the bank!, retaliation is going to cost us a lot more than the damage we do.

BRICS create “New Silken World Order” to bypass West’s monetary stranglehold.
By Ronald L. Ray —
In July, world-changing events occurred, portending the approaching end of Zionist-Anglo-American financial and geopolitical hegemony, but they were ignored deliberately by most Western media. On July 8-9, the seventh summit of the BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa) took place in Ufa, Russia. There, the long-heralded New Development Bank (NDB) was brought finally into existence. However, it was not until July 21, following the official opening in Shanghai, that a few media outlets could force themselves to report half-heartedly about it.
Thanks, however, to analysis by the German-language website “National Journal,” AMERICAN FREE PRESS can bring to readers the deeper significance of the above events.
Die Welt set the tone on July 25: “Now the battle begins for the global monetary system. The foundation of the ‘New Development Bank’ could cause the global financial system to totter.”
As its own website states, the NDB is a “multilateral development bank operated by the BRICS countries . . . as an alternative to the existing U.S.-dominated World Bank and International Monetary Fund [IMF].” It is thus a sort of declaration of financial war against the international banking cartel owned and controlled by the Rothschild family.
The NDB’s stated goal is in direct opposition to the Zionist stranglehold on nations, their peoples and their resources: “The purpose of the bank shall be to mobilize resources for infrastructure and sustainable development projects in BRICS and other emerging market economies and developing countries to complement the existing efforts of multilateral and regional financial institutions for global growth and development.”
Since the infamous Bretton Woods agreement after World War II, which created the IMF and World Bank, the U.S. dollar has been the world’s reserve currency—the one nations have needed to engage in international trade, especially for oil. This has been a boon for the bankers, but not for smaller nations. The final knot in the financial noose was deregulation of commodities futures under former President William Jefferson Clinton, enabling the derivatives insanity.
As “National Journal” points out, IMF and World Bank “help” for developing countries always requires those nations to punish their people through “austerity,” while imposing “free trade” and “privatization” of various government enterprises, like public utilities and water supplies, to the detriment of the populace. Basically, the banksters become hidden dictators and seize the nation’s wealth. Multiple African countries that formerly fed themselves, for example, became dependent on giant multinational corporations, as local businesses were forced out and high prices starved the masses.
By contrast, the NDB is a positive alternative, whose charter prohibits wild speculation with funds and thus prevents profiteering. Mutual benefit for all parties is sought, not the unbridled exploitation and impoverishment of the common man exercised by the IMF and World Bank. The NDB is intended to create real wealth, not a mere transfer of wealth. As such, it may soon become the lender of choice for those nations tired of IMF piracy.
There is also no doubt that the NDB is intended to break the spine of Zio-American world hegemony. Former German Finance Minister Oskar Lafontaine once quoted former Treasury Secretary Lawrence Henry “Larry” Summers: “The IMF is an instrument of American global policy,” intended to preserve U.S. economic and military supremacy in the world. And it is no secret that the BRICS nations seek to break free of that enslavement.
But the effort to create a Eurasian economic community, free of Western financial shackles, does not stop with the NDB. Russia and China are developing an alternative gold market, founded on physical possession of that commodity, not pieces of paper.
More significantly, there is ever-broadening military coordination and mutual support through the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), which currently comprises China, Russia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, India and Pakistan. Recently, Egypt and Iran have expressed interest in joining.
That has the weasels of Wall Street terrified. The Rothschilds never take threats to their debt-slavery empire lying down. The idea of billions of people free of their usurious chains is intolerable, but billions of free people with massive military might to defend themselves have the financial pharaohs frantic.
“National Journal” suggests this explains Barack Hussein Obama’s opening to Iran, which is a critical geostrategic crossroads. In order to save their empire, the banksters have left even Israel in the lurch. That same terror may also be behind many of the recent “spontaneous” demonstrations by “hundreds of thousands” of Brazilians against their president.
It is consequently no surprise that the sycophantic U.S. military taunts Russia and China on their very borders and is preparing to wage a war of aggression, which can only bring about the—most likely nuclear—annihilation of billions of men, women and children.

A former Arizona police officer, who killed six people during his 12-year career before it ended after the latest shooting, is now selling firearm training simulators that jolt people who hesitate to shoot.
James Peters, former police officer with the Scottsdale PD, applied for “accidental disability retirement” in 2012 after he shot a 50-year-old man in the head with a rifle. The deceased, John Loxas, who was holding his baby grandson in his arms at that moment, had a record of threatening neighbors with firearms.
Peters reported seeing a black object in Loxas’ trouser pocket, believing it to be a handgun. It was actually a phone, but Peters learned that only after killing the man in what he called an action necessary to protect the baby.
The officer left the service and was not charged over the shooting, although Scottsdale paid a $4.25 million settlement to Loxas’ family. Prior to that incident Peters, who served some of his career as a SWAT team member, was involved in six other shootings, it was reported at the time. Five of them were fatal, with none of them ending in prosecution.
EX-COP WHO KILLED 6 PEOPLE NOW TEACHES OTHER OFFICERS
Less than a month after retirement with a $4,500 monthly pension, Peters was hired by a Tempe-based company called VirTra Systems. He is now selling and instructing customers on the use of its products – firearm shooting simulators meant to train police and military of how to handle themselves in a firefight, reported the Arizona-based blog Down and Drought.
The company’s flagship product is V-300, a simulator that places a trainee between five video screens arcing 300 degrees that create a virtual reality around him/her, complete with powerful audio. The trainee is also required to wear electrodes that jolt him every time he or she sustains a wound in the simulator. VirTra Systems says the feedback enhances the training process.
“The trainee knows they could experience pain during training, so they take the training far more seriously, leading to more effective training. In addition, the extra stress and pressure during training helps better prepare the trainee for a real life or death situation where a mistake could have dire consequences,” it says in a press release.
The report however is highly critical of the approach, arguing that it basically encourages people to shoot first and ask questions later.
“VirTra’s pain compliance training operates on the theory that officers who hesitate to take action, die,” it said. “The pain conditioning kicks in when the officer fails to react quickly enough, with the goal of reinforcing training. In essence, it recreates being shot, an outcome that VirTra’s officer-safety-first-and-foremost training strongly implies is the losing outcome.”
VirTra Systems says it supplies its products to some 200 police and military organizations around the world. V-300s may cost up to $300,000 apiece.

Corporations are taking the retirement savings of elderly public employees and using them to inflate their stock prices so wealthy CEOs and their shareholders can enrich themselves at the expense of their companies. And it’s all completely legal. Under current financial regulations, corporate bosses are free to repurchase their own company’s shares, push stock prices into the stratosphere, skim off generous bonuses for themselves in the form of executive compensation, and leave their companies drowning in red ink.
Even worse, a sizable portion of the money devoted to stock buybacks is coming from “massively underfunded public pension” funds that retired workers depend on for their survival. According to Brian Reynolds, Chief Market Strategist at New Albion Partners, “Pension funds have to make 7.5%,” so they are putting their money “in these levered credit funds that mimic Long-Term Capital Management in the 1990s.” Those funds, in turn, “buy enormous amounts of corporate bonds from companies which put cash onto company balance sheets…and they use it to jack their stock price up, either through buybacks or mergers and acquisitions…It’s just a daisy chain of financial engineering and it’s probably going to intensify in coming years.” (“How a Public Pension Crisis Is Driving an Epic Credit Boom“, Financial Sense)
So, once again, ordinary working people are caught in the crosshairs of a corporate scam that could blow up in their faces and leave them without sufficient resources to muddle through their retirement years.
The amount money that’s being funneled into buybacks is simply staggering. According to Dave Dayen at the Intercept:
“Last year, companies spent $553 billion to repurchase outstanding shares, just short of the record $589.1 billion in 2007. Large companies like Apple, General Motors, McDonald’s, Pfizer, Microsoft and more have engaged in buybacks in recent years.
Returning profits to shareholders through buybacks and dividends accounted for 95 percent of all earnings in 2014. As a result, each additional dollar of corporate earnings now translates to under 10 cents of reinvestment, according to a study by J.W. Mason of the Roosevelt Institute.”
(“SEC Admits It’s Not Monitoring Stock Buybacks to Prevent Market Manipulation“, Dave Dayen, Intercept)
This explains why business investment (Capex) is at record lows. It’s because the bulk of earnings is being recycled into buybacks, over $2.3 trillion dollars since 2009 to be precise. And it’s all connected to the Fed’s zero rate policy. Zero rates have created an environment in which corporations no longer look for ways to grow their businesses, expand operations, hire more employees or improve productivity. Instead, they look for the quick fix, that is, load up on debt, buy more shares, goose the stock price, and walk away with a bundle.
It’s all about incentives. The Fed has created incentives that encourage financial engineering and stock manipulation as opposed to growth and productivity. And keep in mind that repurchasing shares is a form of margin buying, the same type of margin buying that triggered Stock Market Crash of 1929.
According to Dayen: “Prior to the Reagan era, executives avoided buybacks due to fears that they would be prosecuted for market manipulation. But under SEC Rule 10b-18, adopted in 1982, companies receive a “safe harbor” from market manipulation liability on stock buybacks if they adhere to four limitations.”
We won’t go over the regulations now because, as you can see, they obviously don’t work or these corporations wouldn’t be $2 trillion in the hole. But it is interesting to note that, at one time, policymakers saw how destructive buybacks were and were prepared to prosecute offenders for manipulation. I doubt that any of our regulators today would even dream of bringing a case against these corporate behemoths, after all, they pretty much own the whole show lock, stock and barrel.
The real danger of this buyback phenomenon is that the corporations have piled on so much debt that any sharp decline in the market could push one or two of these giants into default. That, in turn, could quickly take down other counterparties touching off another financial crisis. So, the question regulators should be asking themselves, is how much red ink are these corporations hiding on their balance sheets and what are the risks to the public if they’re unable to repay their debts. According to Henry Blodget at Business Insider:
“As corporations have borrowed more and more money, the level of corporate debt relative to the size of the economy has continued to increase. As the chart below shows, this ratio is now at its highest level ever — even higher than it was in 2007, before the last debt-fueled economic implosion. Importantly, corporate net debt — the amount of debt that corporations are carrying minus the cash they have on hand (green line below) — is also at its highest level ever as a percent of the economy.”
(“Now It’s Time To Think About What Will Happen When Companies Stop Buying Back So Much Stock“, Business Insider)
- Buybacks are driving the stock market higher.
- Corporations purchase buybacks with credit.
- “The level of corporate debt relative to the size of the economy… is now at its highest level ever.”
What can we deduce from these three observations?
First, that stock prices are a bubble and, second, that a significant stock market shakeout could leave some of the nation’s biggest corporations teetering towards insolvency.
Of course, none of this is going to stop corporations from engaging in the same risky behavior. Heck, no. In fact, CEOs are actually looking for ways to speed up the buyback process. I’m not kidding. Check clip from yesterday’s Wall Street Journal:
“Companies are increasingly turning to accelerated share repurchase agreements…to return cash to shareholders and secure an immediate boost to per-share profits…..But these turbo-charged stock buybacks can backfire, especially when a steep market plunge—such as the 5.3% drop in the markets over the past two trading days. That’s because a steep plunge in stock prices can force the companies to potentially pay more to buy the shares through an ASR than what they would pay if they purchased the shares over time on the open market.
“Things can go wrong,” said Robert Leonard, head of specialty equity transactions at Citigroup Inc….
(“Accelerated Buybacks Less Favorable During Market Swoons“, Wall Street Journal)
You’re darn right, they can go wrong, but who gives a rip? Not America’s insatiable CEOs, that’s for sure. They’re just looking for faster ways to cash in, that’s all that matters to them. These guys aren’t even thinking about the health of their companies, let alone their customers. ‘Making widgets for the masses, is for suckers’, right? Corporate honchos have bigger fish to fry, like leveraging up their whole operation to its eyeballs, skimming the cream off the top, stuffing the moolah in an unmarked Caymans account, and slipping out the backdoor before the whole rickety structure comes crashing to earth. That’s modern-day capitalism in a nutshell. Slash and burn, Baby, just like big boys at the Pentagon.
One last thing: Just to show the extent to which these corporate mandarins will go to enrich themselves at their company’s expense, check out this blurb from this 2014 article at Bloomberg:
“International Business Machines Corp. (IBM) is reducing stock buybacks after an $8.2 billion first-quarter splurge… IBM said last week it won’t sustain its rate of share repurchases in the first quarter, when buybacks more than tripled from a year earlier to the most since 2007. The company plans to spend less than $5.8 billion total in the final nine months of this year….
IBM’s sales have fallen from a year earlier for eight straight quarters…Declining sales and rising buybacks have squeezed IBM’s free cash flow…The repurchases, meanwhile, have taken a toll on IBM’s balance sheet. Total debt climbed to $44 billion in the first quarter, up from $33.4 billion a year ago….
During the first quarter, IBM issued $4.5 billion of new bonds, clearly used to fund buybacks, Black said….
“The company tapped the bond market five different times last year, then you have a pretty sizable February issuance,” Black said in the interview. “I feel like there is investor fatigue on the name.”
(“IBM End to Buyback Splurge Pressures CEO to Boost Revenue“, Bloomberg)
Okay, let’s translate this into English: IBM spent $8.2 billion in first-quarter on stock buybacks, even though “sales have dipped “from a year earlier for eight straight quarters”; even though “declining sales and rising buybacks have squeezed IBM’s free cash flow”; even though buybacks “have taken a toll on IBM’s balance sheet”; and even though “Total debt climbed to $44 billion in the first quarter, up from $33.4 billion a year ago.”
Unbelievable, right? And that’s not even the best part. The best part is the fact that “The company tapped the bond market five different times last year.” In other words, they went to the bond market with ‘cup in hand’ and appealed to gullible investors to lend them more money to pay their lavish executive bonuses, to shower more dough on their worthless, do-nothing shareholders, and to keep this whole ridiculous farce going on a bit longer.
Talk about balls!
Tell me this, dear reader, when can we stop referring to this activity as “buybacks” and call it by its real name; looting?

By Joyce Rosenwald
On the night of December 23, 1913 the United States Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act and thereby committed the greatest act of TREASON in history. It surrendered this nation’s sovereignty and sold the American people into slavery to a cabal of arch-charlatan international bankers who proceeded to plunder, bankrupt, and conquer this nation with a money swindle.
The “money” the banks issue is merely bookkeeping entries. It cost them nothing and is not backed by their wealth, efforts, property, or risk. It is not redeemable except in more debt paper. The Federal Reserve Act forced us to pay compound interest on thin air. We now use worthless “notes” backed by our own credit that we cannot own and are made subject to compelled performance for the “privilege”.
From 1913 until 1933, the United States paid the “interest” with more and more gold. The structured inevitability soon transpired: the Treasury was empty, the debt was greater than ever, and the United States declared bankruptcy. In exchange for using notes belonging to bankers who create them out of nothing on our own credit, we are forced to repay in substance (labor, property, land, businesses, resources, life) in ever-increasing amounts. This may have been the greatest heist and fraud of all time.
When a government goes bankrupt, it loses its sovereignty. In 1933 the United States declared bankruptcy, as expressed in Roosevelt’s Executive Orders 6073, 6102, 6111, and 6260, House Joint Resolution 192 of June 5, 1933, confirmed in Perry v. United States, (1935) 294 U.S. 330-381, 79 L.Ed 912, as well as 31 USC 5112, 5119, and 12 USC 95A. The bankrupt United States went into receivership, reorganized in favor of 115 creditors and new owners.
In 1913, Congress turned over America… lock, stock and barrel to a handful of criminals whose avowed intent from the beginning was to plunder, bankrupt, conquer, and enslave the people of the United States of America and eliminate this nation from the face of the earth. The goal was, and is, to absorb America into a one-world private commercial government, a “New World Order.”
On March 9, 1933 President Roosevelt called for the passing of The WAR POWERS ACT TITLE 12 USC. Section 95 (a) and 95 (b). This act declared all United States Citizens to be the enemy of the United States Government, and placed us under permanent Emergency Rule, bypassing Constitutional constraints on government.
With the Erie R.R. v Tompkins case of 1938, the Supreme Court confirmed their success. We are now in an international private commercial jurisdiction in colorable admiralty-maritime under the Law Merchant. We have been conned and betrayed out of our sovereignty, rights, property, freedom, common law, Article III Courts, and The Bill of Rights has been statutized into “civil rights” in commerce. You have destroyed the Republic. America has been stolen. We have been made slaves, i.e. permanent debtors, bankrupt, in legal incapacity, renderedcommercial “persons,” “residents,” and corporate franchisees known as “citizens of the United States”
Since 1933 what is called the “United States Government” is a privately owned corporation of the Federal Reserve/International Monetary Fund. It is merely an instrument whereby the bankers administer their ongoing subjugation and plunder of what was once considered “the last great hope of human freedom.” All “public servants,” officials, Congressmen, politicians, judges, attorneys, law enforcement officers, States and their various agencies, etc., are the express agents of these foreign principals – see Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938; 22 USC 286 et seq, 263A, 185G, 267J, 611(C) (ii) & (iii); Treasury Delegation Order #91 – who have stolen the country by clever, intentional, and unrelenting fraud, trickery, treachery, non-disclosure, miss-representation, intrigue, coercion, conspiracy, murder. If there is a greater tragedy in human history it is hard to know what it is.
An insidious aspect of this is that “officials” like you may think you are “public servants,” are upholding the “law,” or other hoaxes. In truth you are conscientiously and assiduously serving the archenemies of yourselves, your own rights, your fellow citizens, continued human rights, life, and freedom in general. YOU are seditiously administering the plunder, bankruptcy, conquest, destruction, dismantling, and elimination of your country. YOU are systematically defrauding, extorting, impoverishing, and injuring human life on the basis of crimes and lies of such magnitude, depth, and proportions as to be beyond human comprehension.
Now you believe you can sell this nation to foreign powers with the stroke of a pen by Executive Order 12803, April 30, 1992.
By so doing, you are committing TREASON and PERFIDY so immense as “to make the angels weep.” If you and your fellow “officials” do not understand the real situation, you are ignorant, naive, deceived, and conned. You are sheer dupes. If you do know and are parties to it, you are guilty of evil and heinous BETRAYAL. You are in such case TRAITORS and CRIMINALS. All of you “in power” are therefore, either fools or knaves, either of which eminently invalidates your “authority” and renders null and void absolutely all-moral obligation to pay allegiance or to obey the TREASONOUS SYSTEM you enforce with such mechanical viciousness.
If, you, “public servants” had any shred left of humanity, awe, heart, clarity, sanity, access to your true being and conscience, you would instantly resign and do everything possible to inform the American people of their plight and help us retrieve our rights and our country. Only by such means can you even begin to atone for your endless crimes against humanity, the lives you so arrogantly and mindlessly butcher with the “meat-grinder of the law.”
What do you think the American people will do as they discover that they have no more country, that they are slaves to mortal enemies, that they have been tricked and betrayed by their “leaders” who sold them out? What do you think they will do when they realize that all their alleged “public servants” are willing or stupidly compliant parties to the plunder, bankruptcy, subjugation, and ruin of their lives and country?
There is no acceptable excuse for what you have done. You cannot engage in bringing harm to life and, like the Nazi’s defense at Nuremberg, presume that because you do so under the “authority” of an imaginary, abstract, unreal legal fiction called “government” you are freed of the consequences of your acts. Moral and natural law are not obviated by ignorance, hubris and self-righteous militancy. Your entire system – from the ground up – is deceit and fraud. It is illicit in essence and ab initio. As Broom’s Maxims 297, 729 put it: “A right of action cannot arise out of fraud.” Honor is earned by honesty and integrity, not under false and fraudulent pretenses. The color of the cloth one wears cannot cover up the usurpations, lies, and treachery. “When black is fraudulently declared to be white, not all will live in darkness.”
More and more Americans are awakening to the truth. What do you think the American people will do as they discover that they have no more country, that they are slaves to mortal enemies, that they have been tricked and betrayed by their “leaders” who sold them out? What do you think they will do when they realize that all their alleged “public servants” are willing or stupidly compliant parties to the plunder, bankruptcy, subjugation, ruin and destruction of their lives and country? Thomas Jefferson wrote: “An honest man can feel no pleasure in the exercise of power over his fellow citizens.” Lincoln said: “Just as I would not be a slave, neither would I be a master.”
I will not participate in your corrupt, arrogant, and cruel fraud, either as perpetrator or victim. I will no longer sit here and writhe. The TYRANNY over this nation MUST END! End Emergency Rule. Repeal all laws passed under Emergency Rule. Give us back our substance and our law. Give us back our Republican form of government.
If you continue with this course, you will have natural and moral law and higher powers to answer to, not to mention all those you have wronged under color of law. You will have your own laws turned against you, as you have turned the law against us. To transform the shield of protection into a sword of exploitation, subjugation, and plunder is perfidy. I am an American. My destiny is to live as a freeman on the land my forefathers conquered and that I will fight to keep.
You have now been placed on notice. All further actions on your part will be willful!
Resolutely, from an American who demands their country back

It’s 3:00 in the morning. Your wife and young children are asleep. You hear a commotion outside, followed by the sound of a window rattling. You get up, grab your 12 gauge and creep down the stairs. You hear window glass breaking. A black-clad man scrambles in, and while he does, you exercise your right to defend your house and shoot. The man dies.
In a free society, this would be an acceptable, indeed, admirable, use of force in defense of your home and family. There’s only one catch: the man you shot is a cop. In a free, sane society, the benefit of the doubt would be given to you. You saw a masked thug climbing into a broken window, and for all you knew, intended to kill you and your family. You used justifiable deadly force to repel an attack against your home.
The fault would lie with the team of officers who attempted a highly dangerous operation that got a fellow officer killed, and they would be punished accordingly for acting so stupidly. Am I right? BUT, we don’t live in a sane society do we? We live in a 50k SWAT raid-per-year society, a society that worships police and when something like this does happen, the police are given a pass and the man defending his home from an unknown threat is charged with murder.
Killeen, Texas resident, Marvin Louis Guy, is just such a man, in just such a situation. You see, the Killeen SWAT team thought it would be a grand idea to execute a no-knock raid on Guy’s house at 5:30 in the morning. As they were breaking through his window, Guy opened fire on them, killing Charles Dinwiddie and wounding three other officers. They were acting on a bogus tip from an informant who promised that bags of cocaine would be found. Nothing of the kind was recovered. Charges against Guy do not stem from any drug crime, but solely from his successful attempt to fend off an attack on his home.
From KDH News: In Texas, anyone who kills a peace officer who is acting in the lawful discharge of an official duty can be charged with capital murder and could face the death penalty, if convicted.
Texas officials should be far more concerned with the lawfulness, and wisdom, of allowing officers to engage in this type of behavior than whether to sentence Guy to life or the needle. Stories like this always bring the mind back to the senseless, artificial nature of the Drug War. The Drug War paved the way for Dinwiddie to meet his demise on that early morning. Without the Drug War he would still be alive. Guy’s life wouldn’t currently be hanging on the slender threads of fate in Texas. The Drug War is the most reality-denying public policy being pursued today, and the body count daily climbs higher as it is allowed to continue.
Back to the beginning hypothetical: If black-clad men were breaking into your home in the middle of the night, would you use lethal force to defend your home? And if you did, and the dead intruders turned out to be police, what would it say about the society you lived in when you were sentenced to death? How much criminal activity can hide behind a badge? How far can an officer go before a citizen of a free republic has a right to intervene? And if those who are officially tasked with enforcing the law become the principal threat to the law of a free society, when will citizens put an end to the contradiction?
A man breaks into a home and the owner pulls a trigger to end a threat to his property and life. That is law; that is just. A society that recognizes it as such will draw nearer to the ideal of liberty. A society that turns a blind eye when innocent men and women are prosecuted for defending their homes will not remain free for long.
When police break into homes in the middle of the night, unannounced, they are taking their lives into their hands. It’s dangerous and stupid in the extreme, and as a result, many end up dead. There are many other examples of police killing and getting killed by barging into houses in the middle of the night. It seems senseless, but these SWAT raids are a direct outgrowth of the War on Drugs.
End this ridiculous crusade against the personal choices of citizens and the SWAT raids will end. Departments will have to give up their warzone goodies, as they won’t be needed any more. People will get high safely, and ditch the synthetics and prescription drugs, which have been given a market due to the War on a Plant.
The government knows this; however, the Drug War is their means into our wallets and lives, and a backdoor to our liberty. It’s their cash cow, their Golden Goose, it justifies billions in government jobs and departments. It’s the excuse for the Police State itself. The black-market crime wave that the Drug War gins up gives state and federal government the excuse for more legislation, more police, more abuse. It incentivizes employing more violent, authoritarian personalities in law enforcement positions. If you are in search of the hive, the Mother Brain of the American Police State, you will find it residing within the Drug War bureaucracy. Attack that bureaucracy by attacking the Drug War itself.
Legalization will deal the mortal wound to the hydra that has coiled itself around our lives and liberties. We can use its reaction as a compass. If full legalization gains steam throughout the country, every base emotion will be appealed to in order to prevent it. The creature will appeal to your fear, your anger, your patriotism, vanity, envy, pride … everything will be summoned to prevent the stake from being driven home. Ignore its screams, and act knowing full well that you act for the liberty of not just your generation, but the generations to come.
There is only two ways that cops are getting in my home alive, and that is to knock on the door with a warrant in their hand, or stepping over my dead body. If the reader disapproves of this, and finds solace in being compliant to tyranny, I pity your family.

Trapped within the fanfare Chinese Black Monday and the American stock market plunging almost 600 points yesterday, suspicious explosions in China and on an American military base, there has been a very important, but quiet development ,which is escaping the attention of both the American people and the Independent Media.
The Corker Bill Spells the End of the Second Amendment
We are safe from the ravages of the UN Small Arms Treaty, aren’t we? In fact, many Senators have openly stated that they refuse to ratify this controversial treaty. Well, that is not exactly true. There is a new process established by the new Corker bill may very well have changed the way treaties are passed from here on out.
Under our Constitution, a full two thirds vote from senators for ratification to approve any kind of a treaty. This provision of the Constitution is very clear on this point and it is designed to prevent a treasonous subversion of the Constitution. However when one is living under a criminal enterprise, such as the one presented by the present criminal enterprise in power, who worries about following the rules? As a case in point, under the Corker bill, in order to have stopped the Iran nuclear deal, a two thirds vote to stop it from being implemented by the White House. This is not what the Constitution says and this out and out treason against the people of the United States as the Corker bill is a back door to taking our guns while nullifying the second Amendment.
Under the Corker bill, the following paragraphs describe what we are in for.
The Plot to Disarm America Is Commencing
The evidence is mounting that Obama and his colleagues at the United Nations are preparing for complete gun confiscation of civilian owned American guns. There is a new document, previously held secret, which has surfaced and clearly signals the intention of the United Nations to engage in gun confiscation in the relatively near future. The document is damning, however, the existence of the document is not even needed to prove the point that there is a major confrontation brewing between the American people and an international peace-keeping UN force, and it’s coming right around the corner.
Another Nail In America’s Coffin
The following is a smoking gun document that presents seven sequential steps designed to culminate in the total disarmament of the American nation. For those of you that know your history, you will note that there were 17 genocides in the 20th Century and in each case, these genocides were preceded by gun confiscation by the host government. According to theDemocide Project located at the University of Hawaii, governments killed far more people, an estimated 26o million victims, than even war. History shows that if we ever allow government, the UN, or the U.S., to ever be able to seize our guns, we are signing our death warrant!
The following document is a declaration of war against the United States people. For those who find the document to be on the blurry side, scroll down to the Appendix to view a clearer copy.
The UN and its cohorts have accomplished steps 1-5 (see below). They are now working on steps 6 and 7 which would constitute complete disarmament of the American people.
If one examines the first five steps of the plot, it is easy to ascertain the pattern of gun confiscation that Obama has attempted to follow. I do not believe that Obama has to completely implement steps 1-5 before moving to enforce steps 6 and 7. Therefore, even though Obama has not completely implemented the first five steps across the country, he has done enough to usher in Steps 6 and 7 in this United Nations disarmament plan. Steps 6 and 7 are listed below:
“6. Finally, codification of laws to completely makes any and all firearms illegal to own, possess or use outside of military and law enforcement usage.
Creation of a United Nations Police Taskforce with the specific mission of assisting member nations with the collection of weaponry from civilian hands”.
The proof for the validity of the intentions signaled by this document does not lie in the authenticity of any single document. The smoking gun evidence that Obama is progressively moving towards seizing all 300,000,000 civilian guns in this country, lies in the ubiquitous manner in which Obama has pursued sequential and progressive steps toward the disarming of the American people. As it has been said, “Judge a man by what he does, not by what he says”. The cases in point would be what Obama has tried to accomplish after the Boston Marathon Bombing, the Batman Aurora, CO. shootings and the Sandy Hook event. With some very sloppy bootstrapping steps following these events, Obama has progressively attempted to make guns more difficult to obtain and he has greatly expanded what is defined as “military grade weapons” and to limit what is considered to be “appropriate” for hunting as he has tried to block Americans from obtaining as many of these weapons as possible.
“1. Classification of military grade weapons to be made illegal for possession”.
“4. Codification of laws to begin the restricting and strict licensing of hunting grade firearms.”
I am certain that most people familiar with present Second Amendment debates will recognize the various and omnipresent “gun buy-back” programs funded with your tax money designed to remove guns from civilian hands.
“2. Creation of programs to provide reasonable compensation for voluntary surrender of said arms”.
How many times have we witnessed Obama standing before the cameras and national press corps and threaten to take unilateral action against our gun rights following each one of the false flag events mentioned above? In each instance, Obama has used thinly veiled excuses that he only wants to take away guns that “military grade weapons”.
“1. Classification of military grade weapons to be made illegal for possession.
- Codification of laws to restrict the sale of, and possession of ammunition and components to manufacture ammunition”.
Connecting the Dots for Gun Confiscation
Even if the the UN document designed to disarm America, listed above, was not genuine (and it is), the following, very public document has been proven to be very authentic.
Under the heading, “Hiding in plain sight”, the United Nations has been advertising for the following position for over a year:
Posting Title: Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Officer, P4
Job Title Code: DISARMAMENT, DEMOBILIZATION AND REINTEGRATION OFFICER
Department/Office: Department of Peacekeeping Operations
Duty Station: New York
Job Description: A minimum of seven years of progressively responsible experience in disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration or related area. Experience working within peacekeeping, peace-building or development programmes operations is desirable. Experience with small arms control, conflict/post-conflict crisis management, economic recovery is desirable. Experience coordinating multiple partner agencies, funds or programmes is desirable.
Secretary of State, John Kerry, signing away America’s freedom, security and longevity as he signs the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty.
There is even more fuel to throw on this raging fire as we consider the fact that, at the behest of President Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry illegally, and in direct violation to the Constitution of the United States, signed the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. The UN Arms Trade Treaty contains all 7 provisions listed above in the Disarmament Commission of the United Nations.
We should also be focusing on the military invasion that is about to unfold in this country. This will be the military invasion that will be UN sponsored and it will be the one that seizes our guns. Take a look at the following images of UN military vehicles spotted and photographed in our country in the past 14 months.
An occupation force is being mobilized.
Thanks to Congress, Obama has found a backdoor way around the Second Amendment by subverting our treaty process. The stealth in which this is occurring is mind-boggling. I hope that many of the readers will share this information with friends and neighbors. Americans cannot comply with the treason that will arise out of this act.

August 24, 2015
(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, The Matrix Revealed, click here.)
The powerful Globalist players at the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group, and the Trilateral Commission are certainly watching the presidential campaign of Donald Trump.
Trump has already made statements about immigration they find troubling. They may or may not be taking Trump’s presidential run seriously. They may or may not view him as an inconsequential blowhard, a shoot-from-the-hip cowboy who forgets today what he said yesterday—but today the New York Times has made reference to Trump in a way that will make these Globalist heavy hitters pause and blink while drinking their morning coffee (Here in “As Stock Market Plunges, Donald Trump Takes a Worldview” by Alan Rappoport):
“Mr. Trump has said that bad trade deals with China and Mexico are to blame for a sluggish American economy and weak job creation. He has promised to make ‘great’ deals with other countries to protect American workers and has threatened to raise taxes on imports to the United States to bolster domestic production.”
It’s the last part that rings alarm bells and shoots firecrackers into the sky:
“[Trump] has threatened to raise taxes on imports to the United States to bolster domestic production.”
Taxes on imports. Also known as tariffs.
Every significant trade-treaty negotiated since 1945 has been aimed at lowering or eliminating tariffs, in order to establish Globalist “free trade.”
Treaties like GATT, NAFTA, CAFTA, for example; as well as the current TPP and its cousins.
Free trade is code for: mega-corporations and banks can roam the planet and set up shop anywhere they please. They can bankroll and build production facilities, produce cheap goods, and sell them anywhere in the world without paying tariffs.
Tariffs would make that whole operation useless. It would defeat mega-corporate greed and ambition internationally.
“We’ve got these factories making gizmos in East Nowhere, we’re paying workers four cents an hour, we’ve got no environmental/health regs and rules that would raise production costs, there are no worker unions, and we’ve therefore got a big edge on our smaller competitors, because we can ship these gizmos anywhere in the world and sell them cheaper than they can, and all of this is possible because we pay no tariffs. If there were stiff tariffs, we’d have to shut down the whole scene, pack our bags, and leave…”
Globalism, at one level, is all about erasing tariffs.
Whether in a momentary fit, or by serious intent, Trump has crossed swords with the Globalists.
President Nixon tried that for a few moments in the early 1970s, and betrayed his main sponsor, David Rockefeller. Nixon erected a few tariffs to save American-based companies.
Rockefeller was and is Globalism personified.
Soon, Nixon found himself on a helicopter heading away from the White House for the last time.
Trump might want to think about pumping up his security detail.
He’s just stumbled into the Twilight Zone where money makes money for money making money. Trump $$$ is nothing compared with Globalist $$$.
He’s just pulled the pin on a quiescent grenade in the world of mainstream media, where the subject of tariffs is a no-no.
“Reggie, Klaus here. I was just reading the Times this morning. Did you see the reference to Donald Trump? Tariffs? Maybe we should take a second look at this lunatic. If he presses forward with the idea of protecting American businesses, and it catches on, and people figure out what he’s saying…if he figures out what he’s saying…we could have a problem. If all sorts of business people—I don’t mean people like us—but ordinary business people see a chance to come back to life…with tariffs to protect them…Trump’s campaign could take on a new dimension. We’d have to do whatever it takes to stop it…”
Yes, if the American people figure out that the new normal economy, as miserable as it actually is, is linked like a lock and key to the Globalist plan; if the American people figure out that no recent American president, including Obama, had any ambition whatsoever to lift up the American economy; that all these presidents are liars of the first order; something might happen.
If Trump, jumping and leaping and cavorting, suddenly grabs on to that secret and that issue, and tells the American people that their jobs really disappeared because of Globalist trade deals and no-tariffs…and he keeps growling and slathering and foaming…
He’s definitely caught the attention of the big-time Globalists at the CFR, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderberg Group.
Note to The Donald: Step up your security, and watch all the bankers you do business with very carefully. They will try to find a way to cut you off at the knees. You just stumbled into the Globalists’ private game preserve. They don’t like that shit.

I am sorry to tell all you good folks that your hope and change dream just turned into nightmare, because “The Donald” just stepped on the wrong toes.

The International Banking Cartel owns everything and they will nuke the whole earth before handing over our freedom to govern ourselves. You can take THAT to the bank! This shitstorm is the result of the people being too lazy to keep an eye on the bankers in the beginning, and continues to this day. Ignorance is not BLISS, it’s suicide!
Something might change.

By Michael Massey, who is a black writer in LA.
The below summary of Barack and Michelle Obama’s 6- year reign in the White House is by far the best I’ve ever read as it squarely hits the nail on the head.
And it took a black female reporter writing it to make it as effective as it is. A white man’s account would be instantly criticized by the liberal media as pure racism. But, how can anyone scream Racist when an exacting description of the Obama’s is penned by a well- known journalist of color?
BEST SUMMATION OF BARACK AND MICHELLE OBAMA EVER!
(Mychal Massie is a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles ..)
The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn’t like the Obama’s. Specifically I was asked: “I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama’s? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture.”
The truth is I do not like the Obama’s, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I’ve made no secret of my contempt for the Obama’s. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don’t like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.
I don’t hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama’s raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.
I don’t like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress. I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President, and a love of our country and her citizens, from the leader entrusted with the governance of same.
President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagan’s made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish.
Obama’s arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing Congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?
Presidents are politicians, and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie. But even using that low standard, the Obama’s have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility.
I do not like them because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to now being able to be proud of America. I view that statement and that mind set as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world.
Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do that. I have a saying, that “the only reason a person hides things is because they have something to hide.” No President in history has spent over a million dollars to keep his records and his past sealed. (AND THE ‘SILENT MAJORITY’ REMAIN SILENT!)
And what the two of them have shared has been proven to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother’s death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father’s military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address.
He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today. (DON’T FORGET THE ‘DEVOTED MUSLIMS’ HE’S PLACED IN GOV’T) He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel.
His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.
I don’t like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.
Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card. I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white President and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.
As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, “Nero In The White House” – “Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his Presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequaled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood.
Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected President, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a First Lady who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America ‘s people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.
Please resend to all your address book.
America has to wake up before it is too late!
Just more evidence that a persons mind is more important than their race!
YOU GO GAL!

Since Jan. 1, 2015, police in the United States have killed a staggering 745 people.
According to statistics provided to Mic by research collective Mapping Police Violence, American police are on track to kill around 1,200 people in 2015 if the slayings continue at the same pace through the remainder of the year.
The map below shows how many individuals have died in each of the 50 states and D.C. While there’s a clear correlation between the number of officer-involved homicides and the population size, a few states stand out as having extremely high numbers of deaths.
The 745 deaths documented through Aug. 17 includes more than 142 additional deaths from Mic’s last version of this fatality map, compiled July 10.
In California, police killed over two dozen people in those 40 days. Since mid-July, California’s count has risen at a rate of nearly five killings per week, from 95 to 121. Texas officers killed 17 people over the same time frame, rising from 64 killings to 81. Florida police killed seven, for a total of 50 deaths this year.
Rhode Island, South Dakota and Vermont all continue to have a year free of police killings.
A review Mapping Police Violence did of unarmed police victims between January 2013 and August 2015 found that the five states with the highest numbers per capita of unarmed people killed by police are Oklahoma, Arizona, Maryland, Florida and South Carolina. California, with its 512 overall deaths (and 96 unarmed victims) comes in sixth by this metric. In most states, unarmed victims of police shootings were disproportionately black.
Source: Seth Wenig/AP
Some states are killing many times more individuals on an absolute basis than entire countries are. In Norway, which has a population of 5.2 million, police have shot dead just two people since 2002, firing their guns just 33 times since then, and not at all in 2007. In Arizona, population 6.7 million, police killed 31 people so far this year alone. On a single weekend in August of this year, U.S. police ended more lives than all the police in Germany, Norway, Japan, Singapore and England and Wales did combined throughout the entirety of 2014.
Vocativ has previously reported U.S. police kill more people per capita than there are criminal homicides in 19 out of 34 OECD countries. A USA Today investigation from Nobember revealed at least 1,581 U.S. police departmentsarrest minorities at rates “more skewed” than the highly investigated Ferguson, Missouri, police department, which arrests “black people at a rate nearly three times higher than people of other races.”
What’s more, police in other countries tend to be more cautious even when they do use their firearms. Of the 85 bullets fired by German police in 2011, Der Spiegel reported 49 were warning shots. In just one 2014 incident in Stockton, California, U.S. law enforcement fired more than 600 rounds at a trio of bank-robbery suspects holding three hostages in a Ford Explorer, hitting one of the hostages 10 times. She died from her wounds.
Does this sound like a constitutionally protected Nation to you? It sounds more like a repeat of Soviet Russia or WW2 Germany to me. When will you folks wake up to your duty to learn and teach about the tragic transformation of America? A hundred million informed people would put a stop to this shit.

FAVE FIVE FRIDAY
How I educate myself – what caught my eye this week
Friday, August 21, 2015
By Rebecca Cope
One thing I learned through the frenetic 15 months I worked with Sacha Stone to co-create the ITNJ: No Tribunal, no matter how structured, can overcome the defects if you don’t know the law and know when the rule of law isn’t being followed.
When all is said and done, that’s why I walked away from the ITNJ. We discovered that a model that had never been discussed in a single foundational meeting had been substituted for the one we had been promoting. Rather than discuss the changes, Sacha Stone, and those who advise him, used 72-hour Contract Law to attempt a power grab. I was not impressed. How I answered that “Public Notice,” and why I decided that it was impossible to continue working with them, is #4 on the “fiver” list for today.
I thought it would be fun to share what caught my eye this week. Rod Class states it best: “Know THEIR rules, THEIR laws they are supposed to obey. That’s the only possible defense.” How can you hold anyone accountable unless you can all agree on what the Rule of Law is?
1. In that vein, I loved this video from “What Lies In Your Debt.” Jesse and his team have put together a system to: “Help people help themselves and become better people for it. Not only are you fully capable, with a little effort, you can be on your way to knowing when and how to use the Federal Debt Practices Act against them – and win” If you are dealing with Foreclosures, or Credit Card Debt, or harassment from debt collectors, don’t miss this video.
2. My second pick is the most comprehensive understanding of Law that exists on the planet, imho. Frank O’Collins has nailed a homerun out of the ballpark with his last 9-part series on “The Law Explained.” His blog posts have an audio, a comprehensive set of slides, and the written word to help you understand now only law, but how life itself works according to Universal Law. DO NOT MISS THIS SERIES.
3. I talked with Rodger Dowdell this week. He has a most comprehensive understanding of WHY the Grand Jury Movement is the most important answer we, the people have to put the Rule of Law back in our hands. Visit the website often as we rebuild it to accommodate our new show format and content, and look for our video series coming soon.
4. How do you answer a PUBLIC NOTICE that cuts to the heart of the Power Grab that resulted in my leaving the ITNJ to it’s own fate? Here’s my paperwork.
5. No list is complete without a reading of Anna Von Reitz’s latest offering. Our team intends to offer an affiliate marketing program to help her get this book out there everywhere. If you don’t do anything else, READ THIS BOOK. It is the most important step to open your mind and heart to the deception that now passes for “government” by corporate few who grabbed power and continue to act as if they have “Delegated Authority” from us to do so. It’s time we wake up and TAKE BACK OUR POWER.
I hope you enjoy this series. I continue my education every week. Commit to one night a week, one hour a day, whatever works for you, but begin. I will continue sharing my picks for people who do the best job of putting good material together. Become an informed and inspired proponent to restore the rule of law before it is too late. It truly is up to the people. Nobody else can or will do it for us.

The ‘Asset Development Plan’ for Greece is out and it’s all go for the privatization of the country. Hellenic sea ports, air ports, motorways, petroleum companies, water and gas supply, real estate, holiday resorts – it’s all for sale……………………. Is America Next?

Occupy Greece: Germany Wins Bid to Run Regional Airports
Debt laden Greece has been forced to sell the family silver in an all too familiar tale with ancient history repeating itself.
The Hellenic Public Asset Development Fund has been published by German Green MEP Sven Giegold who said the Greek people “hardly know” what will be sold off and that they have “the right” to know.
The selling of Greek assets to raise $56 billion (€50bn) was demanded by Greece’s creditors, the Troika. The document reveals that 66 percent of a gas distribution and processing firm will be sold to Azerbaijan; 35 percent of Greece’s first oil refinery firm will be sold off along with 17 percent of its electricity distributor and 65 percent of gas distributor Depa.
All rail and bus services will go under the hammer — along with the Greek telephone and postal service.
Even before the bailout deal was completed and the money arrived safely in the Greek banks, the Germans had won their bid to take over 14 Greek airports for the next 40 years, paying $1.36 billion (€1.23bn) for the privilege.
FRAPORT will own and operate Greece’s most popular tourist island airports.
Of the $56 billion (€50bn) needed in asset stripping and bank shares, only $8.69 billion (€7.7bn) has been agreed so far.
Nick Dearden, economic expert and campaigner, says it makes “no sense to sell off valuable assets in the middle of Europe’s worst depression in 70 years.”
Writing in Global Justice Now, Dearden says: “The vast majority of the funds raised will go back to the creditors in debt repayments, and to the recapitalization of Greek banks.
“From German airport operators and phone companies to French railways — who are getting their hands on Greece’s economy. Not to mention the European investment banks and legal firms who are making a fast buck along the way.
“The self-interest of European governments in forcing these policies on Greece leaves a particularly unpleasant flavor…workers will be sacked and their conditions made worse, while the elite of Europe profits.”
Dearden continues to offer a scathing attack on the asset stripping of Greece.
“Privatization in the context of the bailout accord is tantamount to expropriation, like forcing a bankrupt to sell the family silver in order to pay off debts…the victorious Northern European governments are now inviting their companies to partake in the spoils.”
It seems ancient history is repeating itself.
In 1871, the ancient Greek city of Troy was crudely excavated by German businessman and archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann using dynamite which destroyed many significant artifacts; his exploration methods condemned.
But the spoils of Troy always remained in Schliemann’s hands — who in 1884 handed the entire collection to Berlin. Today’s Greek spoils are in the hands of the Troika which will oversee every deal made and decide where the money goes.
This is the results of the monopoly frenzy that’s been going on all over the world in the last hundred years. Now the major stock holders of the consolidation project (“The International Banking Cartel”) are going to own the majority of world commerce. This is what it’s always been about. Control of the energy, food, natural resources, and currency will give them absolute control of all the people. Those people now planning a family are going to be contributing to slave production. That is, IF they are allowed to reproduce. The only possible recourse we have is to eliminate the Cartel! OR! BEND OVER AMERICA , YOU’RE NEXT!

Can anyone stop the overweening lunacy of the banking oligarchs? No more than anyone can stop pythons from devouring rabbits at play. Our bankers are not honorable. They are not farsighted. And they have set in motion forces that no human effort can avert. Moreover they long ago formed a deathly co-op with history’s most deplorable criminal element – the state. This has given them a free pass to indulge in ugly asset corpulence and hideous irresponsibility. It has hidden the true state of their criminality from realization by good men and women. The banking oligarchs and the power they have over us today are the result of a long train of poisonous ideas descending upon the American republic over the past 120 years.
It began with the coming of socialism to Europe and its Fabian migration to America at the turn of the century. Capitalism, the Fabians preached, is the root of all evil with its insistence on gold as money. Its freedom is no longer possible in the modern world. It brings to mankind uncontrollable booms and busts and horrific poverty. There is no cure for capitalism. It must be burnt at the stake of its egregious altar – free banking. Free banking is responsible for wild cycles, and gold stifles productivity when needed. Only by centralizing the great network of free banks that capitalism creates and shifting from rigid gold money to flexible paper money can abundance and stability be brought to modern life. Thus was ushered in America’s reign of “easy money” with the inception of the Federal Reserve in 1913.
The Lure of Easy Money
Prior to 1913 we had resisted the lure of easy money, a curse that goes back to early civilization. Governments of history have always partaken in monetary debasement to create the illusion of prosperity. Our Founders realized this and preached against any kind of paper money. But their wisdom lasted only 125 years.
Easy money is like promiscuous sex. The two lures promise sensual delight and prosperity, and they do deliver such for various periods of time to their partakers. But ultimately they erode self-worth (for the female) and degrade the store of value that money represents for society. Bleakness and disaster are their ultimate denouements.
The media of the day, however, were eager to endorse this glorious shangri-la of perpetual prosperity that was sold to them as the Federal Reserve. “All progressive thinkers now realize,” they hammered home to us, “that banking must be centralized and controlled in Washington. Only then can booms and busts be eliminated. Only then can true stable wealth be produced.”
The fact that just the opposite has taken place over the past 100 years of this maniacal experiment in giving to government the power to create money escapes the awareness of pundits on the political left because clarity and reason do not move pundits on the left. Getting more out of life than they are willing to put in moves them. Denying the existence of Natural Law moves them. These two obsessions blind them to the irrational mega-statism that they so ritualistically worship in face of every problem that life thrusts upon us. Their worldview belongs to Alice in Wonderland. Words mean what they want them to mean. Objective reality is optional in their mind.
Because the pundits of the left have been taught the misconceptions of socialism, they fell prey to John Maynard Keynes in the 1930s who believed that capitalism had reached its “mature stage” and would never again be able to “generate sufficient demand.” Thus it needed massive government intervention into banking and the creation of money by those in Washington.
But capitalism has no such thing as a “mature stage.” It is eternally renewable as long as it is left free to recharge itself. The flaw in Keynesianism is that it was not capitalism that brought us the Great Depression; it was government intervention into capitalism via the Federal Reserve and its irresponsible inflation of the money supply that created a massive boom throughout the 1920s that had to eventually crack up and collapse.
All Keynesianism does is to exacerbate the normal cycles of laissez-faire and turn them into dangerous monster cycles via massive injections of credit, i.e., DEBT. If left on a gold standard, this cannot happen. Only the normal cycles of laissez-faire will come about, which quickly self-correct if left alone. Keynesianism is the classic case of government intervention creating economic distortions that it then uses as an excuse for more interventions, which then create more distortions. Eventually the distortions reach epic proportions such as we have today.
The solution is to restore a free market in banking. Take the control of money out of government hands and let the marketplace determine what is to be used. It will always pick gold and silver, which cannot be inflated and thus will not bring about massive booms and busts. Keynes was catastrophically wrong in thinking that gold and the free market caused the Great Depression. The cause was the paper inflation that came from the creation of the Fed in 1913. Numerous Austrian economists have demonstrated this quite brilliantly – Murray Rothbard in America’s Great Depression and Ludwig von Mises in Human Action, for example. It is this crucial mindset that our intelligentsia must grasp if we are to get back to a free society and avoid the New World Order being prepared for us by the banking oligarchs.
The Tragedy of Modernity
Thus the tragedy of modernity. Political collectivists have swept over our country like a plague of infected rats in the days of Black Death. And they are destined to bring the same degree of upheaval to us that came to Europeans in the 14th century because of the rodents infesting their societies. Pathogenicity is not limited solely to physical life. It also plays a very prominent role in ideological life and comprises the evil factor in forming the tidal waves of history that sweep the shores of human endeavor over the millennia. The other side of the equation is that of salubrity and heroism which drive humans toward truth and propriety. Herein lies the great clash of good and evil that we find to be the metaphysical base of all meaning for our lives.
Unfortunately, the pundits of the left like Paul Krugman and Thomas Friedman, and talking heads like Chris Matthews and Rachael Maddow dominate the scene and are lost in the utter irrationality of their philosophical fundamentals learned long ago in the formative years of their Fabian youth. Together with the equally warped neoconservatives, they control ten times the air space that the American freedom movement controls. Thus the country drifts toward an apocalyptic collapse.
What is coming is the end of the world as we know it. There will be no recovery from the Marxian-Keynesian disease and its vast rodent spawn of minds like Krugman, Friedman, Matthews, Maddow and their 20th-century mentors. There will be only chaotic economic crashes mixed into a steady, drizzling dissolution of culture and hope, prosperity and faith, politics and freedom proceeding from now into an indeterminate future.
But out of every downfall comes the inevitable effort to right the requisites of existence. Humans are seekers of truth in the long run. They desire the good rather than the evil even though they get hypnotized by the latter for long stretches of time. So for those of us who grasp the overwhelming idiocy of the collectivist Weltanschauung, sanity drives us to seek out one of two avenues: 1) drop off the grid and find a safe haven to ride out the coming storm, or 2) attempt to forge a resistance movement to fight the purveyors of what surely will be a Tyrannical World Order foisted upon us by the banking oligarchs in the coming storm. Both avenues have their appeal. One’s particular persona will dictate which is the preferred.

The average person is a statist, whether he realizes it or not. It is important that liberty activists recognize and accept this fact because the truth of our limitations as a movement determines the kinds of solutions into which we should ultimately put our time and energy. The fantasy of a final grand march of an awake and aware majority on the doorsteps of power is just that: a fantasy. Some people might argue that given more time, such an event could be organized or could happen spontaneously. But these people seem to forget that the immediacy of any crisis inspires awareness and cuts the bindings of complacency for only a certain percentage of any given population. With “more time” often comes more complacency, not less.
So, history becomes a kind of balancing act, with crisis generating the necessity of intelligent and moral action in some people but rarely, if ever, in most people (even during the American Revolution, in which patriots represented a stark minority). The reason that the culture of freedom consistently plateaus and remains stuck at underdog status is because human beings are, first, often acclimated to the idea that crises are things that only happen to other people, and, second, they are obsessed with the idea that governments should retain prohibitory and administrative power over the public as a means to “prevent” crisis from occurring (the sheepdog and sheep mentality).
Not all people necessarily “love” their current government, but many citizens tend to see the idea of government as an inevitability of a stable society. They assume pre-eminence of the state because they have never known anything else. Not only that, but as people separate into political and ideological factions, often based on false paradigms (such as the false left/right paradigm), they covet government as a kind of tool or weapon that can be used for “the greater good” if only their side had total control of it. Very few people in this world want to shrink government down to a manageable size comparable to that which existed just after the American Revolution, and even fewer would entertain the idea of erasing central governments entirely. The allure of the federalized state as a means to impose ideological control over others is intoxicating.
Central planning acolytes see society as a a single unit, or engine, in which all the people are parts rather than autonomous individuals. They believe that if any part acts outside of the bounds of the engine, the entire machine could break. According to their fuzzy logic, everything you do as an individual affects everyone else, therefore, the collective state must mold and control each individual’s behavior in order to ensure that what you do as a singular person does no harm to the whole. This philosophy is the primary rationale for EVERY push for centralization, but it is based on a faulty premise.
Governments are run by people, people commonly more flawed and corrupt than the average citizen. Central planners adore the use of government as a means to rein in populations and to compel conformity and “oneness”, but centrally planned systems always revert to a divided structure in which a criminal minority separates itself from the collective in order to rule over that collective. The elites actions violate the integrity of the engine as they attempt to drive the engine according to their own twisted ideals, leading to disaster and the end of the supposedly safe environment which the central planners had originally claimed was the benefit of central planning. Thus, the central planning model is an inherently self destructive and foolish one.
At bottom, the only viable purpose of any central government is to safeguard individual liberty. All other claims and supposed benefits are irrelevant. Infrastructure, food and water, health, education, public security, etc: All of these issues can be provided for voluntarily at a local level by common people without the aid of a central authority. The original intent of the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights was to LIMIT government to the job of ensuring the continuance of a free citizenry. One could certainly argue that that role has been lost; not because of the constitution itself, but because of the lack of vigilance needed to defend the integrity of the constitution. One could also argue that the very nature of a federal government is one of inevitable corruption; many of the founding fathers did as the document was drafted, after all.
I will say that the constitution and the Bill of Rights are representations of natural law and inherent conscience, and it has taken elitists over two centuries to mostly dismantle them. At this point, a complete end to any form of federalization may be called for, but the founders certainly tried their best to create a government system that could be controlled by the people.
It was war, of course, that was used to dismantle constitutional protections…
Most of the outside or foreign threats we face today as a nation (threats often used to rationalize centralized government and standing armies) or have faced in the past century were directly or indirectly CREATED by our own government apparatus and by the banking class through covert means. Funding and training of Americas future enemies has been a grand pastime for the power brokers and politicians that reside in this very country. Without such people and the structures they exploit, it is not outlandish to suggest that the past hundred years could have been a period of peace and prosperity rather than mass death through engineered war, state culling, and mass enslavement through artificial debt constructs.
In a culture where vigilance is encouraged rather than labeled paranoia, in a culture where productivity is enabled rather than obstructed, in a culture where free thought is treated with interest rather than disdain, government holds no value.
The only people who understand the true nature of government and still value the existence of an overreaching state are the people who would like to take advantage of the unchecked power such a state affords. We often call these people “elitists.” They often call themselves elitists. Big government serves only the interests of these elites. Everyone else is either a hapless victim of it, a useful idiot in service of it, or a revolutionary opposed to it.
When a government becomes a power mechanism for a select few, it has lost all relevance. When a government like ours here in America violates the tenets of individual liberty despite its constitutional mandate, in the name of “protecting” individual liberty, that government no longer serves any purpose. Even further, when a government’s policies are designed only to ensure its own continued dominance rather than the freedom and prosperity of the citizenry, that government becomes separate from the people and is, by extension, an enemy to the citizenry.
Governments and the elites behind them retain control over populations through the use of central planning. Central planning is essentially a bureaucratic structure that bottlenecks productivity, resources, academia and ideas until all progress and expression require approval. That is to say, central planning is a machine that turns rights into privileges. It also sets up bureaucracy as the final arbiter of who is considered an authority in any particular field and who is a “layman.” These designations are not based on individual ability, intelligence or accomplishment. Rather, they are based on subservience and the level of blind faith in the establishment each person is willing to display in order to attain professional status.
Some of the most ignorant people in any given field or profession are often those deemed “experts” by establishment institutions, from politics, to law, to medicine, to economics, to science, to history, etc. The sad fact is mainstream experts are rarely the most knowledgeable, but they are the most indoctrinated.
As central planning gains ground, it moves away from more subtle institutional dependencies into full-bore tyranny. The line between permission and despotism is razor-thin, and this is where we in the U.S. stand today. Most nations around the globe are socialized nations, with central planning as the very foundation on which their societies stand. For the most part, these cultures are disarmed and servile with a modicum of perceived freedom that is treated as a privilege granted by the state rather than an inborn right of natural law. Yes, many societies have “freedoms,” as America does; but the difference is that these societies can have their freedoms confiscated at any given moment on the whim of the political elite. They have no recourse to obstruct such an action and no power to remove the offending system that rules over them when they finally get fed up.
In the U.S., central planning is surely prevalent and socialization is on a fast track. But Americans, whether they know it or not, still retain the ability of independent response — as we saw at Bundy Ranch, for instance, or in the defense of shopkeepers in Ferguson, Missouri, despite threats from government. We will lose our advantage of independent action if we allow the following changes to occur within our culture without a fight.
A disarmed population is utterly useless, philosophically and organizationally impotent, and easily ruled. Take a look at simpering weakling societies like the U.K., which prohibits anyone under the age of 18 to purchase plastic knives and punishes victims of crime for physically defending themselves. Governments that seek to undermine personal liberty ALWAYS disarm their respective populations if they can get away with it. In America, the only reason we have not yet been disarmed is because the establishment understands that revolution would immediately follow any attempt and that revolution would be seen as justified. I believe ultimately that disarmament in the U.S. will not be fully attempted until after a national crisis has been triggered.
Centralized Health Standards
The real purpose of Obamacare was not to provide universal health insurance. Such a task is utterly impossible in an economic system that is in the midst of decline with an aging population and reduced profit opportunities for the young. Socialism works only as long as there is someone from whom to steal money and resources. No, the purpose of Obamacare was to bond the healthcare industry to government in such a way as to make it an official appendage of the state.
Already, we have seen the push for the use of doctors as government informants, the issuance of forced vaccinations regardless of religious orientation or philosophical objection, increased taxation in the name of “harmonization” of care, etc. Beyond all this, the system must continue to perpetuate its own usefulness. And, I have no doubt that one day we will see such things as mandated health appraisals of individuals up to and including psychological health, as well as restricted care based on age, life habits or even ideological orientation. If the state can have your flight status restricted merely for your political beliefs, then why not one day have your access to medical care restricted?
We have heard it said many times that people should be required to attain a “license” before they are allowed to have children, but who gets to decide who is eligible for the “privilege” of children? Well, under a population planning scenario the state and its central planners do, of course. And what makes such people so ethically competent as to deserve this power over the right to family? Not a thing. In many cases, bureaucrats are the most psychopathic and unintelligent people in any given society.
Some people might argue that this kind of development is unthinkable in America and not a legitimate concern. But already in the U.S. we have seen instances of Child Protective Services abducting children belonging to parents with political conflicts with the existing establishment and living habits outside of the mainstream. We also live in a system in which many parents are forced by law to hand over their children to state-controlled schools for half of every weekday (as home-schoolers are attacked as aberrant child abusers). We are only a short step away from a world in which having a child invites as much government intrusion and restriction as rearing a child.
Overt Militarization Of Police
Yes, many people would claim that overt militarization of police has already occurred. I would say that they haven’t seen anything yet. We do not yet live in a country where jacked out cops with armor and M4 carbines stand on every street corner 24/7, but it won’t be long before this becomes our everyday environment. With politicians openly suggesting extreme measures to combat “lone wolf terrorists,” up to and including internment camps for “disloyal Americans” (thanks for at least being honest about your intentions, Wesley Clark), all it would take is one large-scale attack to inspire enough confusion in the population to provide cover for a full-blown police state. Central planning survives and thrives through fear. Fear is defeated through preparedness, planning and mindset.
A person cannot plan or prepare for crisis if he is not allowed to manage his own resources. In Venezuela today, the government has locked down all food production and is rationing out necessary supplies through sophisticated electronic tracking due to economic crisis. Make no mistake, America is just as vulnerable to financial disaster as any Third World nation, if not more so. Resource management will be the inevitable result. In fact, the Obama administration has already positioned itself for resource management through his National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order. Government officials will call preppers “hoarders” and argue that no one person should be allowed to have more than he needs. Once again, the argument will be that the self preservation mentality of individuals actually harms the collective.
We already have a centralized and socialized economy for the most part, but private trade and production are still possible. Central planning is designed to wipe out alternative forms of trade and subsistence so that all people can be made dependent on the singular state. As in Venezuela, we should expect that economic declines will be used as a rationale for a clampdown on individual trade. The only way to fight these kinds of measures is for average people to become avid producers and be willing to fight back physically against confiscation and government-controlled rationing.
Beyond trade controls, centralization will culminate in economic “harmony” through multilateral currency schemes, ending in a one-world currency. A single currency system by default calls for a single economic authority, and this by default calls for a single political authority. A one-world currency is not only a fiscal coup for central planners; it is also a stepping stone toward world government.
A cashless system is a kind of unholy grail for central planners because it allows for total control of economic trade. Electronic-based currency systems can be dictated from the comfort of a computer, and savings can be erased or limited arbitrarily. Cashless systems also allow banking structures to operate without the normal consequences of supply and demand fundamentals. Today, even in our massively corrupt financial system, one cannot get around the concrete effects of diminishing demand, endless debt obligations and criminal fiat creation. We are seeing these effects vividly so far in 2015, just as we saw then in 2008. In a completely cashless system, though, debts can vanish, capital can be stolen and shifted away from the public in a more precise manner, taxes can be excised without waiting for taxpayers to comply, and demand can be artificially generated with digital fiat directed to the correct accounts without any trail to follow.
Of course, there will be damages. But, those damages will be foisted upon the general public incrementally until Third World living standards become normal, and no one will be the wiser after a couple of generations. Control of the population would be absolute, while any dissent could be met with immediate financial reprisal, as activists are sentenced to starvation.
The examples listed above may be measured as extreme, but every single one has support within our existing government structure either legally or through actual programs already being implemented. The speed at which they might occur is an unknown, but the desire for them by central planners is absolutely certain. There is no good or benevolent form of central planning. There is no scenario in which the system will not be abused because such power concentrated in the hands of any group of human beings invites abuse. Therefore, the only prudent course, the only solution to the absolute terror of complete state power, is to reduce government down to a shell of its current size or to remove its existence entirely and focus on localized systems and independent trade and infrastructure development. If the federalized state as an edifice no longer exists, then it can no longer be exploited by evil people.

Those who believe the U.S. Constitution is still the supreme law of the land are just as delusional as those who believe America has free and honest markets.
The Constitution is selectively enforced by government corporations, acting in obedience to the international bankers, just as our founding fathers predicted.
American’s are totally beguiled by THE UNITED STATES CORPORATION, which is a Washington D.C. Corporation acting as elected politicians, with the sole objective of draining America of its natural resources, devaluing its currency through the excessive accumulation of national, and personal debt, and indoctrinating each generation into a dependency on the government to solve their problems, and take care of them.
Our present concern is for getting arrested for not obeying all the un-constitutional laws being passed by a rogue Congress, preserving the ability to earn a living, and stopping the transformation to a Global Electronic Currency, and Global Government.
As each generation of indoctrinated children mature, and each generation of self reliant individuals die off, America becomes a nation of intellectual cowards who obediently accept economic slavery.
Communitarianism then becomes America’s GOD, technology will no longer be needed to update character databases, and personal freedom will no longer be desired. Americans will be happy slaves!
I started researching on American sovereignty in 2004, and in 2008 I started a blog named http://inpursuitoffreedom.blogspot.com/ then shortly after that I started http://olddogsletters.blogspot.com/ then I started http://anationbeguiled.com/ and https://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com/ as a backup, and even with the proliferation of other patriot web-sites over these eleven years, the vast majority of American citizens still don’t have a clue about the real state of the union. They don’t know that America is NOT a sovereign Nation of Independent States, they don’t know that their brain washed children went off to Profit making wars and died for the International Banking Cartel, they don’t know that they are listed as assets, and not as free living persons, or their personal possessions like houses, cars, trucks, and bank and saving accounts are not their own private possessions, and this is just the short list of how they have been robbed, raped, and mutilated! Will someone please tell me just what the hell it takes to reach their little minds? Are the majority of my fellow Americans so stupid they have no survival instinct? No Pride! No Rage for having been beguiled their entire life! Is one hour of daily reading too much of a burden? If that is too much, will you at least read one 276 page book? I have been trying to make sense of the fiasco in America for several years and re-publishing articles showing the vast number of un-constitutional actions preventing us from enjoying a Constitutional Government. Finally I found a Retired Lady Judge through http://scannedretina.com/ (Anna von Reitz) in Alaska and discovered her book which brings all the pieces of the puzzle together. This book will change your life and help you understand the degree of tyranny you have suffered. It is available here: http://www.amazon.com/You-Know-Something-Wrong When/dp/1491279184

This Saturday marks one full year since the US military began its still-undeclared war against Islamic State that the government officials openly acknowledge will last indefinitely. What do we have to show for it? So far, billions of dollars have been spent, thousands of bombs have been dropped, hundreds of civilians have been killed and Isis is no weaker than it was last August, when the airstrikes began.
But don’t take it from me – that’s the conclusion of the US intelligence community itself. As the Associated Press reported a few days ago, the consensus view of the US intelligence agencies is that Isis is just as powerful as it was a year ago, and they can replace fighters faster than they are getting killed.
Like it does for every stagnant and endless war, this inconvenient fact will likely will only lead others to call for more killing, rather than an introspection on why continuing to bomb the same region for decades does not actually work. Perhaps we’re not firing missiles at a high enough rate, they’ll say, perhaps we need a full-scale ground invasion, or perhaps we need to kill more civilians to really damage the enemy. – The Guardian, Aug. 8, 2015
Like the proverbial frog in a kettle, the American public is almost completely unaware that its president is waging an illegal war. President Obama has been spending American blood and treasure in and around Syria for a full year now.
Whether attacking the Islamic State is necessary or advisable is beside the point. The War Powers Resolution clearly requires the president to withdraw from hostilities within 60 days unless Congress consents. It has not.
The administration contends that the 2001 authorization for military force against al Qaeda gives it authority to attack the Islamic State as an allied force. Yet al Qaeda and Islamic State are not even remotely allied. They are bitter enemies, in fact. By bombing the Islamic State, the U.S. is actually helping al Qaeda.
Why does Congress not defend its prerogative? Because our representatives and senators are cowards. Taking a vote would mean taking a stand, either for or against the action. The members fear (correctly) that opponents will use this stand against them in subsequent elections. Dodging responsibility is far easier. They retain the option to either claim credit or blame Obama, whichever is more expedient.
Keep in mind, this same Congress claims Obama has overstepped his authority in other areas and has taken many symbolic votes to prove it. They have filed lawsuits against him on matters far less serious than an illegal war. Yet in this case, they are happy to let him keep bombing. Why?
The real answer is that war is very profitable. The Pentagon must replace the expended weaponry, buy parts for its aircraft and pay contractors for all sorts of tasks. One man’s waste is another man’s profit margin. Those who profit from U.S. military action use their influence to make sure it continues.
War is a racket. It always has been and will always be so. The racketeers succeed because they have help from a cowardly Congress and a public obsessed with its bread and circuses.
Any Nation obsessed with immorality, diversity, self-centeredness, and cowardice will not survive if WAR is their only attribute. Sadly, America is at the point of imminent destruction and no-one seems to care enough to stand up and publically declare the right to reorganize its own Government. Let it be clear that we were given that right the second we were born, so why are you standing on the tracks while waiting on the train? I don’t mean to say that every person has the ability to be a leader, and to be honest a real leader is few and far between, but if the majority do not believe that the present danger exist, that capable person is certainly intelligent enough to avoid certain death. My fellow Americans, unless you find a capable person to rally around and pledge your life to protecting him/her, and show the deadheads you will die for your freedom from economic tyranny and immorality then you most certainly will have to accept slavery FOREVER! It could begin by finding a capable Governor for each State who can organize a resistance in his/her own State against the tyrannical Corporation in D.C. and together compose a new contract between each State, and then appoint potential candidates for protector of the contract. We don’t need an all powerful nation to show the world our strength, all we need is to be a good neighbor. That begins by EDUCATING THE PEOPLE and being honest with ourselves.

By James Corbett: War On Terror
Syria is once again the center of attention with Washington and Ankara agreeing on “ISIS-free zones” that each partner is interpreting in its own way. Joining us to explore those interpretations is Sibel Edmonds ofBoilingFrogsPost.com, just back from the region with intel on a possible timeline for increased military action in the country.
In this conversation James and Sibel discuss Turkey’s battle against the Kurds and how the Kurdish population are being used by the US and Israel as pawns in a complex chess game. We also examine the recent bombing in Suruc and signs that it was a false flag provocation.
It’s amazing the psychopaths in Nato and the us can read from the same broken playbook over and over and the American people can figure it out.
It is my opinion that the average American has been conditioned to be a complete idiot.
Soon, the oppressors will turn on the American people for their cowardice alone.
Acting like a doormat only brings about boots on your face.
Just remember this America, you can cower in fear to avoid the bullies for now, but when they run out of victims they will come for YOU.

And so are our schools . . .
See also: What is Our Government . . . Really?
We are living in a duality that most don’t recognize. Many suspect things aren’t going well as jobs are outsourced, public utilities and roads are privatized, and our elected officials keep passing bills they don’t read and that don’t solve any of the “real” problems we face. Most of us feel that our elected officials don’t really represent us anymore. Why is that?
Because they don’t! They represent corporations aka our state, local and federal governments; GOVERNMENT, INC.
The corporatization of our governments (which started long ago) changed the role in government our elected officials play. Once they take office, they no longer represent the folks who voted for them, but become trustees (or employees) of the federal, state, or local corporations. 
This scam has been going on a long time , but we feel the results of it more each year.
- Have you noticed how our elected officials are distant and difficult to reach once in office?
- Have you noticed how no matter how valid our complaints are – we are ignored?
- Have you noticed how few people ever get justice in our court system?
This is because we are primarily living under admiralty, maritime or business “contract” law not Common Law or Constitutional Law.
Many years ago (1851) the Ohio Constitution was created. From the Ohio Constitution:
We, the people of the State of Ohio, grateful to Almighty God for our freedom, to secure its blessings and promote our common welfare, do establish this Constitution.
Article 1: Bill of Rights
§1 INALIENABLE RIGHTS.
All men are, by nature, free and independent, and have certain inalienable rights, among which are those of enjoying and defending life and liberty, acquiring, possessing, and protecting property, and seeking and obtaining happiness and safety. (1851)
Unfortunately that document does not represent the primary legal system currently being implemented. Instead, we are now living with the ‘rules’ aka ‘statutes’ that corporate government entities (i.e. the STATE OF OHIO) pass to govern ‘society’ and to ensure their control and revenue streams. And the police force has become the rule enforcement officers for ‘Government, Inc.’ To serve and protect the public, in most cases, is no longer their primary function. It is critical to remember that a corporation’s PRIMARY GOAL is to produce profits for that corporation. It is literally their legal “fiduciary” responsibility.
The definition of an act or a statute:
A legislative rule of society given the force of law by the consent of the governed, as a rule, by a corporation.
By its own definition it is not law, it is only given the FORCE of law by the CONSENT of the GOVERNED. The only way to get CONSENT is through the implementation of signed contracts. Corporations are bound by the law of contracts, i.e. the Uniform Commercial Code.
Statutes are the rules made by incorporated government bodies so they can “do business”, i.e: extract money from and control the population.
The H1N1 flu “pandemic” and the pandemic response system, that has been constructed in Ohio over the past seven years , helps demonstrate how our current legal/government system works. Each legal entity involved has two names; one is the common name we are familiar with and the other is their commercial or business name as listed on the Dun and Bradstreet  web site.

Corporate government entities involved with public health and vaccination programs
In 2006-2007 the UNITED STATES government gave OH $13.8 million (as payment per contract aka cooperative agreement) for the pandemic planning that the STATE OF OHIO had completed. This pandemic planning included 1) the passage of Senate Bill/House Bill 6 redefining public health “rules” aka “statutes” in 2003 and 2) the completion of a pandemic policy manual, Limitations of Movement and Infection Control Practices, in 2005 by HEALTH, OHIO DEPARTMENT OF. This was a business/contractual arrangement between the UNITED STATES and the STATE OF OHIO. [details]
Senate Bill/House Bill 6
The CEO (director of health) of HEALTH, OHIO DEPARTMENT OF  (Ohio Revised Code: 3701.03) was granted authority to:
- raise money for Ohio Department of Health  (ORC 3701.04) by selling their services to anyone they choose
- accept and spend money raised as a gift, bequest or contribution for the purpose the gift, bequest or contribution was made  (ORC: 3701.04)
- order home or business invasions of those who are suspected of violating their “health rules” with little or no justification (violation of Article 1, §15 of the Bill of Rights – Ohio Constitution)  (ORC: 3701.06)
- quarantine and/or isolate anyone with little or no justification  (ORC: 3701.13). This is in direct violation of Article 1, §1 and §8 of the Bill of Rights – Ohio Constitution.
Limitations on Movement and Infection Control Practices sites the “statutes” that public health officials can refer to as legal authority to enforce actions against the public regarding forced vaccinations, property searches and quarantine/isolation
Then in April 2009, the STATE OF OHIO and OHIO DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH accepted $7.5 million from the UNITED STATES government for OH’s statewide H1N1 vaccination program, which included the
School-located Vaccination (SLV) program.
In Sept 2009 I contacted the elected Board Members (BOARD OF EDUCATION) of my local school district and expressed my grave concerns regarding the dangerous/untested H1N1 vaccine and the implementation of their mass school vaccination program. I received a formal letter as a response. The President of the BOE stated their intentions to proceed with the mass vaccination program. She also acknowledged that a business arrangement had been entered into with Franklin County Board of Health (FCOH). ” . . . our school district and all school districts in the central Ohio area have a memorandum of understanding with the Board of Health . . . ” As I have not seen the actual Memorandum of Understanding the BOE signed, I do not know the date. But, essentially these memorandums precede cooperative agreements. School districts have entered into business contracts whereby they will get paid after allowing the mass vaccination program of the children in their schools. The school districts were incorporated by legislation passed in Ohio in the 50s. However, it is important to remember that no law or “statute” allows for the school board to authorize child endangerment , which is a felony.  The H1N1 vaccine is an experimental untested vaccine and the risk of vaccine injury is quite high. 
While the public naively believes Government, Inc. represents the taxpayers, Government Inc. is much like Business Inc., i.e. “They have no soul to save and they have no body to incarcerate” . But, unlike Business Inc, Government Inc. can (and does) pass statutes giving themselves legal immunity from most of their unscrupulous business arrangements that cause harm to the general public – and there are many! This is the mechanism that allows those who are profiting from (Business Inc) and those who are administering (Government Inc) the dangerous/experimental H1N1 vaccination programs to our school children – to do so with impunity. . . so far.

Effective Date: 02-12-2004
 3701.13 Department of health – powers.
The department of health shall have supervision of all matters relating to the preservation of the life and health of the people and have ultimate authority in matters of quarantine and isolation, which it may declare and enforce, when neither exists, and modify, relax, or abolish, when either has been established. The department may approve methods of immunization against the diseases specified in section 3313.671 of the Revised Code for the purpose of carrying out the provisions of that section and take such actions as are necessary to encourage vaccination against those diseases.
Effective Date: 02-12-2004; 05-06-2005
 To surrender children to public health officials, while they are in school, for the purpose of the administration of dangerous untested vaccines (that have harmed many children) is not protecting the child but exposing him/her to potentially serious injury.

If you want a recent, vivid example of the corrosive effect the Drug War has on the character of law enforcement, look to the actions of the officers who raided Sky High Holistic, a medical marijuana dispensary located in Santa Ana, California, on May 27th of this year. The video footage shows officers, clad in black masks, barreling through the door of the dispensary, guns drawn, and proceeding to wreak havoc once inside. They destroyed an estimated$100,000 worth of business equipment, along with what they believed at the time to be all the surveillance cameras. Lucky for us, they missed a camera or two and allowed us a peek into what officer behavior is like when they think no one is watching.
According to the OC Weekly article, after destroying the place they proceeded to play darts, and even helped themselves to what could possibly have been pot-laced edibles. From the article: “The video footage shows an officer stuffing something into his mouth and handing something to another cop, who asks him “What flavor?” The officers then laugh. The footage is too grainy to be certain that the item that the officer picks up from the counter of the cannabis shop is in fact a pot edible, although the behavior of the officers suggests this is the case.”
The thuggish behavior doesn’t end there: “Also in the footage: a female police officer joking that she wanted to kick Marla James—a marijuana activist and wheelchair-bound amputee who was present during the raid—in her “nub.” Marla was shocked upon learning that the officer joked about assaulting her: “James struggled to understand why the female officer in the video would make fun of her disability. “You know what, I was really nice to that woman,” James said. “I even complimented her on her hair. I treated that woman with respect and I have no idea why she wanted to kick my stump.”
It may astonish Marla that officers of the law would conduct themselves in such a crude manner, but it shouldn’t be astonishing to anyone who understands the environment that the Drug War imposes upon both law enforcement and citizenry. It has increasingly become one of jailer/inmate, or king/serf, rather than citizen/republic. Our dangerous servant becomes our master when given the authority to police what we are free to consume. More laws necessitate more police, and more discretion on the part of the police to be effective. “Effectiveness” here means greater, and more frequent use of, coercion, to get results.
This inevitable phenomenon of increasingly brutal tactics used to enforce all the various “plans” that government foists onto the public was described in chapter ten of The Road to Serfdom, entitled, Why the Worst Get on Top. Hayek states:
To be a useful assistant in the running of a totalitarian state, it is not enough that a man should be prepared to accept specious justification of vile deeds; he must himself be prepared actively to break every moral rule he has ever known if this seems necessary to achieve the end set for him.
The more laws, rules, regulations and outright prohibitions that our government enacts requires for their effective enforcement the deputizing of individuals whose character more closely resembles the reflexively violent, amoral nature of real criminals.
The side effects of making it policy to hire those violent enough to fight a Drug War are illustrated fairly well in the actions of the police at Sky High Holistic, but there are plenty of examples elsewhere. Take the phenomenon of “puppycide,” the immediate shooting of a dog that clearly poses no threat to the officer. The shooting of a non-threatening family dog, more so if the family is begging you to do otherwise, seems to me to be the true mark of a barbarian, a thug who could only find a career in law enforcement in an artificially violent environment such as the one the Drug War blankets our society with. And there are so many examples of police killing dogs that a mailman could easily handle more humanely. There are equally as many examples of police endangering those around them in their zeal to execute the animal. It’s the quality of the officer as a moral individual that is at issue here. A government that insists on planning society requires the services of those with a moral compass that allows gunning down family pets.
Hayek goes on:
Yet while there is little that is likely to induce men who are good by our standards to aspire to leading positions in the totalitarian machine, and much to deter them, there will be special opportunities for the ruthless and unscrupulous. There will be jobs to be done about the badness of which taken by themselves nobody has any doubt, but which have to be done in the service of some higher end, and which have to be executed with the same expertness and efficiency as any others. And as there will be need for actions which are bad in themselves, and which all those still influenced by traditional morals will be reluctant to perform, the readiness to do bad things becomes a path to promotion and power.
We, as citizens, are on the receiving end of the predictable brutality of low-IQ thugs, whom the government increasingly employs to do the dirty work of enforcing a growing list of do’s and don’ts that are enshrined into law without a thought to the unintended consequences. The unintended consequences of the Drug War have taken center stage, from black market violence, the ascension of dangerous synthetic drugs, bulging prisons, a criminal underclass, a totalitarian overclass and the intentional selection of enforcers who have no qualms about using force to compel unconditional obedience.
Liberty humanizes us, markets humanize us; voluntary cooperation humanizes us. It is government that nudges out the barbarian in our nature.

I get a real kick out of young people with the golden gift of wordsmithing, and this kid has it in spades. I would give everything I own to have his skill so I could make plain as day all the information on humanity and governments I have digested over the years, but alas I’m stuck with the vocabulary of a rabid dog, a drunken sailor, and mental midget. It is up to each of you to learn all you can on how to stimulate everyone you know, to read and learn the truth about how Americans were beguiled from the getgo. Maybe I’ll send him a copy of You Know Something is Wrong When…..: An American Affidavit of Probable Cause by Anna Maria Riezinger and Paul Alan Snover, and see how he responds. Read this review: Anna and James should receive National support for this gift to America. Now there is no excuse to continue supporting the political system that enslaves us, and every reader should make it a personal obligation to promote this work. I envision a hundred million people reading this book over and over until they can recite verbatim the skullduggery used to rob, rape, and pillage millions of unsuspecting Americas; not to mention the trillions of dollars these Tyrant Bankers have made from our ignorance. This fiasco is akin to a Preacher in a mega Church raping the women thereof and getting away with it for years, because they had so much faith in him. I will demand every family member and friend read this magnificent piece of research. More praise and info on this book will continue to be available at http://scannedretina.com/ and http://anationbeguiled.com This book is vital in comprehending the breakdown of western civilization as it covers suppressed US history & discusses the broken treaties & ignorance of jurisdictions! It also gives proper insight to writing Tort Affidavit and where to notify! Bravo! Many will be able to overcome the tyranny of ignorance and start living in peace! Order it here:
