NOTE FROM OLDDOG!
I apologize for being off schedule recently, but numerous ignored Honey Do items
have stretched a very important person’s patience. All done now!
Obama’s High Noon
The “supremacy clause” is dealt with in Mack/Printz, in which the U.S. Supreme Court stated once
and for all, that the only thing “supreme” is the Constitution itself. Where by the powers, the Sheriff
reigns supreme above the president.
Does there remain any governmental Horatius who can stand in the gap; who can lead the Battle for
America and restore the Constitution? There is. Lock and load, mount up and prepare for the return
of the Sheriff

- Local Sheriffs are Under Oath to Support the Constitution Before Federal Gun Control Laws
My guess is that in the minds of many Americans the sheriff is an antiquated figure who lives in the movies.
In the older movies he is the hero; he is Gary Cooper in “High Noon,” awaiting the train that will bring killer
Frank Miller back to town. In the new ones, he is the southern sheriff, even bigger than Rosie O’Donnell,
sneering, sadistic, racist, violent, etc. He has no modern relevance.
But now here comes Sheriff Richard Mack, elected and re-elected in Graham County, Arizona, where he
served for eight years. During his tenure, three federal agents came to a meeting of Arizona sheriffs and
told them in certain terms how they would be dragooned as unpaid federal bureaucrats and administer
the new, federal Brady gun registration law.
The law was named of course for Ronald Reagan’s press secretary, who was severely wounded in the
immensely suspicious attempt to assassinate the President. Since then, Mrs. Brady has become a leader
of the campaign for Nazi gun confiscation. I don’t know whether she was as crazy before the shootings as
she is now. Just one more increment of lunacy and they would have to lock her up.
Sheriff Richard Mack
Richard Mack and the other Arizona sheriffs at the meeting rebelled. Sheriff Richard says the language
he heard – in which he did not participate – could not be repeated in the presence of genteel Christian
ladies, so we can’t tell you here what the sheriffs said. But Sheriff Mack did take the government to court.
He sued the United States, and Sheriff Jay Printz of Montana joined him as plaintiff.
On June 27th, 1997, the sheriffs won; in Printz v. U.S. (521 U.S. 898) the U.S. Supreme Court struck Brady
down. Associate Justice Antonin Scalia wrote the ruling for the Court, in which he explained our system of government at length. The justly revered system of checks and balances is the key:
U.S. Justice Antonin Scalia
“. . . The great innovation of this design was that ‘our citizens would have two political capacities, one state
and one federal, each protected from incursion by the other’” – “a legal system unprecedented in form and
design, establishing two orders of government, each with its own direct relationship, its own privity, its own
set of mutual rights and obligations to the people who sustain it and are governed by it.” (P. 920)
Scalia quotes President James Madison, “father” of the Constitution: “[T]he local or municipal authorities
form distinct and independent portions of the supremacy, no more subject, within their respective spheres,
to the general authority than the general authority is subject to them, within its own sphere.” The Federalist,
No. 39 at 245.
President James Madison Founding Father
Again and again, Justice Scalia pounds the point home (page 921): “This separation of the two spheres is
one of the Constitution’s structural protections of liberty:
‘Just as the separation and independence of the coordinate branches of the Federal Government serve to
prevent the accumulation of excessive power in any one branch, a healthy balance of power between the
States and the Federal Government will reduce the risk of tyranny and abuse from either front.’. . .”
Gregory, 501 U.S. at 458.
He quotes President Madison again: “In The compound Republic Of America, the power surrendered
by the people is first divided between two distinct governments, and then the portion allotted to each
subdivided among distinct and separate departments.
Hence a double security arises to the rights of the people. The different governments will control each
other, at the same time that each will be controlled by itself.” (P. 922)
No one could make this any clearer. The primary purpose of the Fathers was to prevent someone from
grabbing all the power. When that happens, they knew, the result is arbitrary, confiscatory, government,
the kind Thomas Jefferson described in the Declaration of Independence. We would call it totalitarian.
Madison explains: “The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands,
whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced
the very definition of tyranny.” Federalist No. 48, February 1, 1788.
To prevent that from happening, they divided the power. First, they divided the federal power into three
parts: the executive, the legislative and the judicial. They would bicker among themselves, so that no one
of them could seize all the power the Constitution grants to the federal government.
The Founders divided the power even more. They set the limited power the Constitution grants the “general authority,” Madison’s term for the federal government, against the vast residual powers of the states.
Each sphere of government, state and federal, would be supreme in its own sphere. Neither could control
the other. Each protects itself from intervention by the other. Each has its own laws and rules.
Madison says this: “Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over
the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which
the people are attached and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier
against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government
of any form can admit of.” Loc. Cit.
What does all this mean today in the Battle for America? Sheriff Mack says it proves that the sheriff is the
highest governmental authority in his county. Within that jurisdiction – inside his county – the sheriff has
more power than the governor of his state. Indeed, the sheriff has more power in his county than the
President of the United States. In his county, he can overrule the President and kick his people out. Remember,
the President has few and limited powers.

With Q3 of the 2015 fiscal year just around the corner, one cannot help but notice unprecedented unease in both financial and social spheres, and perhaps with good reason; with alternative media forecasters, national banks, and supranational institutions alike heralding the coming of “global depression” by the end of 2016, this consensus of seemingly strange bedfellows almost universally agree that something wicked this way comes.
These dire economic prognostications exist simultaneously in a world in which energy and development prospects, both nationally and transnationally, are being reworked – with equally profound implications as the aforementioned financial trend analysis.
Be it the Obama Administration’s “Clean Power Plan” or the EU and China’s planned Neomalthusian 2030 carbon emission cutbacks, national entities the world over are positioning themselves for profound shifts in energy, development, trade, and even currency ahead of COP21 in Paris this December, or as some have deemed it, “Agenda 2030.”
The convergence of both engineered economic crisis and an engineered “sustainable development” crisis in late-2015 are hardly coincidental, nor are they insignificant.
While the alternative finance community seems destined to eternally squabble about the mechanics of a coming global depression, few have set themselves to the task of projecting what the character of such a post-depression society will look like – and the “New World Economic Order” it has the potential to initiate.
It is this author’s contention that the character of this coming era can only be understood when financial calamity is viewed in tandem with Agenda 21’s faux-ecological insidiousness; and you, Reader, deserve the knowledge and documentation of this sagacious plot.
It’s pervasive, it’s global, and has existed (in its modern form) since at least the 1970s.
Seeking to contextualize this historical continuity, we must first examine the writings of erudite anti-Technocracy researcher, Patrick Wood, and his pioneering work on the Trilateral Commission’s “New International Economic Order” of the 1970s.
Technocracy and the “New International Economic Order”
As an integral decade in this ongoing “Age of Transitions,” the 1970s brought with it previously unimagined sociopolitical and economic shifts. Deflation was prevalent.
The decade also saw the rise of the Petrodollar and the end of the gold-backed Bretton Woods era, as well as the seeding of eugenic “environmental catastrophe” memes propagated by works like the Club of Rome’s 1972 publication, Limits to Growth, or John P. Holdren’s equally Neomalthusian and lauded Ecoscience.
It also saw the birth of the Trilateral Commission, co-founded by David Rockefeller and Zbignew Brzezinski in 1973, who, among other things, pushed forth the concept of a “New International Economic Order” to quell the world’s ailing economic and environmental “doom and gloom” forecasts.
While the nature of this “New International Economic Order” at the time evaded Mr. Wood and his research partner, Dr. Antony Sutton, the perspective granted by the passage of time has lead Patrick Wood to declare Technocracy to be the true aim of this New Order. He writes:
“It is plainly evident today, with 40 years of historical examination behind it, that the “New International Economic Order” was really “new” and envisioned historic Technocracy as replacing Capitalism altogether. Technocracy was based on energy rather than money and its system of supply and demand that regulates pricing. Some distinctives of Technocracy include:
• Elimination of private property and wealth accumulation
• Replacing traditional education with workforce training
• Micromanaging all energy distribution and consumption
• Driving people to live in a limited number of cities and off of rural land
• Enforcing a balance between nature’s resources and man’s consumption of them.
“Are you thinking that this list is vaguely familiar? You should, because it represents the modern manifestation of programs like Agenda 21, Sustainable Development, Smart Growth, Smart Grid, Cap And Trade, Climate Change, Common Core, massive surveillance operations and a whole lot more. All of this has been brought to us by the machinations of the Trilateral Commission and its members since 1973, and it is all part of its master plan to completely replace capitalism with Technocracy. This is their “New International Economic Order“! — Patrick Wood, Endgame of Technocracy (Patrick Wood’s book, Technocracy Rising, is available on Amazon).
The Trilateral Commission, however, was not alone in the propagation of the “New International Economic Order” ideal. As with all things global and “sustainable,” the United Nations is sure to be lurking nearby.
The UN’s “Council on Trade and Development” (or UNCTAD) was the chief multinational institution (in cooperation with the Trilateral Commission) in proudly promoting such a New Order throughout the decade:
As noted in my previous article about COP21 and the coming Agenda 21 “update,” documentation on what this “binding and legal agreement” entails directly from UN sources related to the Conference is sparse; that is, until one abandons searching for literature on the “green” facade and goes straight to the source of the “New International Economic Order” itself – that is, global trade governance, as documented by UNCTAD
It is within UNCTAD’s 2015 policy briefs that we begin to find some semblance of clarity as to what a post-global depression geopolitical and economic environment has in store for us; and as all burgeoning Hegelians know, global problems invite (engineered) global solutions.
UNCTAD and the “Sustainable Multilateral” Vision of Humanity
Over the past 40 years, the “New International Economic Order” has changed its name and structure, but never its primary objectives. Its old name cast away in favor of representing our increasingly captive and globalized world, “Multilateral Global Trade Governance” is its new moniker.
The threats of population bombs, peak oil, and Global Cooling prevalent in the ’70s, too, have given way to the phantom foes of carbon emissions and “unsustainability” so overtly propagandized to us in the 21st Century.
In true Technocratic fashion, UNCTAD declares the new face of “transformative” and “multilateral” global governance to be underpinned by none other than sustainable development in their 2015 Policy Brief No. 31:
This shift towards “multilateralism” is more than rhetorical, representing a structural change in the nature of globalism. It’s also not limited to UNCTAD, as the IMF, BIS, World Bank, and yes, even the BRICS have been calling for a “New Multipolar World Order” for quite some time.
This new form of globalism is slated to be seemingly inclusive, allowing nations like China, Russia, India, and Brazil some measure of regional control, while ultimately being subservient to the “binding and legal agreement” of COP21. Continuing with Policy Brief No. 31
We see that these new “inclusive multilateral mechanisms” are anything but voluntary, as UNCTAD goes on to conclude that such mechanisms would “preclude competitive liberalization;” in other words, multilateralism is designed to prevent Second and Third World nations from seeking a development structure outside the UN’s “sustainable” vision.
If any are still in doubt as to whether the BRICS alliance and its New Development Bank represent this globalist multilateral trap, UNCTAD steadfastly declare the BRICS to be an integral regional component in this plot:
This latest forecast echoes UNCTAD’s 2014 publication, A BRICS Development Bank: A Dream Coming True? which also holds the BRICS NDB as a key partner in Agenda 21 and its global Technocratic serfdom, written about at length by this author previously.
This bank-against-bank dialectic is the Globalist version of Coke vs. Pepsi. Republicans vs. Democrats. East vs. West. BRICS Bank vs. World Bank. Multilateral vs. Monopolar. All result in the synthesis of “global trade governance” aspired to by the Anglo-American Establishment and Agenda 21.
In UNCTAD’s Policy Brief on Climate Change No. 4, the structure of this new system of governance was enumerated upon by none other than Chinese (Editorial Correction: S. Korean) UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon. If his description does not represent “multilateral globalism,” I don’t know what does:
Supposedly sovereign nations will be subservient to regional entities (BRICS, NAFTA, EU, etc). Regional entities will abide by a commonly agreed upon set of global development and economic standards (COP21).
The city, town, and community, long subsumed by ICLEI’s “sustainable development” principles as set forth by Rio ’92, are already in lock-step with this “multilateral globalism.”
“And what of the individual,” one may ponder? Such an “outmoded” concept has no place in the eternal Cybernetic feedback loop of “green” global trade governance as outlined by UNCTAD:
The aforementioned “knowledge sharing,” “peer reviewing,” and “accountability” standards will be handled not wholly by governing bodies, but governing algorithms, as such banal tasks are likely to be managed by our increasingly “smart” cities, metering devices, homes, and cars; a shift destined to portend the increased control such devices will bring to everyday life within this “New Multilateral Economic Order.”
It is unlikely that such sweeping alterations to global as well as social interaction will take place unless “motivated” by periods of crisis. In UNCTAD’s Policy Brief No. 36, the importance of our last global crisis of 2008 in creating the prerequisites for “Green” Globalism is noted:
It therefore stands to reason that the activation of these bilateral, regional, and megaregional trade agreements created in the wake of the 2008 Depression will likewise require economic calamity to activate; calamity that alternative media and the Bank for International Settlements alike are predicting as inevitable.
If such a “transformative” global structure is to be initiated in advance of or around COP21 this December, the remainder of 2015 is likely to be wrought with continued economic uncertainty.
The brief goes on to note a number of transnational corporations complying with this new Green Globalism, some of whom should be familiar to the astute Deep Political reader and researcher:
All have been intimately involved in the Neomercantile “opening of China” and the rampant technological buildup of the East by Western capital since the 90s, with IBM’s insidious participation in programs as varied as the Holocaust, police precrime algorithms, and the invention of the “smart city” concept being well documented. Of Lucent Technologies and IBM specifically, James Corbett of The Corbett Report writes:
“In the same time period, China rose from the 30th-largest target of US R&D investment to the 11th on the back of a doubling of US affiliates in the country. The list of companies that started major R&D activities or facilities in China in the 1990s reads like a who’s who of the CFR-nested Fortune 500 set: DuPont, Ford, General Electric, General Motors, IBM, Intel, Lucent Technologies, Microsoft, Motorola, and Rohm and Haas all had a significant stake in China by the beginning of the 21st century.” — James Corbett, The Great Decoupling: How the West is Engineering its Own Downfall
So it would seem this same set of “CFR-nested Fortune 500” companies responsible for building up China’s industrial and technological capacity are now pushing forth sustainable development with the UN as well as within the BRICS nations themselves.
Have these Western entities bolstered China’s modern economic stature out of sheer goodwill? Merely self-interested profiteering? Or is the fulfillment of this greater collectivist agenda the “quid pro quo” demanded by the West in exchange for such niceties as increased regional power in the Asia-Pacific?
This year’s demise of the BRICS economies (most notably China) as well as key Western markets, if not overtly coordinated, certainly provide a unique opportunity to bring about these proposed “global (green) solutions” to “global crises.”
As this blog has set out to demonstrate since its inception, globalism is indeed what its title claims – global. It knows no borders, nations, or ideologies, save complete and utter transnational subjugation of autonomous human beings – globally.
Technocracy – rule by a class of entrenched elites and “snitch society” technologies – will be the character of this coming global era. Sustainable development (Agenda 21) is its vehicle.
It doesn’t reach the “End of the Road” without a transition from the “Old Economic World Order” to the New, a divergence impossible without a global economic crisis the likes of which has not been seen in nearly a Century.
Agenda 21 and the prospect of economic calamity have been inseparable concepts since the ravings of former UN Under-Secretary General and co-Agenda 21 architect, Maurice Strong, became a matter of public record back in 1992. In talking with late activist George Washington Hunt at a UN Environment Conference in Colorado, Strong, under the auspices of a fictional book he hoped to pen, mused casually about how such a “New World Order” could take shape:
“What if a small group of these world leaders were to conclude the principal risk to the earth comes from the actions of the rich countries? In order to save the planet, the group decides: Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring this about?
“This group of world leaders forms a secret society to bring about an economic collapse. It’s February. They’re all at Davos. These aren’t terrorists. They’re world leaders. They have positioned themselves in the world’s commodities and stock markets.
“They’ve engineered, using their access to stock markets and computers and gold supplies, a panic. Then, they prevent the world’s stock markets from closing. They jam the gears. They hire mercenaries who hold the leaders at Davos as hostage. The markets can’t close.” — Maurice Strong
Strong abruptly ended his tale by concluding that he “probably shouldn’t be saying things like this.” Not that he had to continue, as from where we stand in 2015, we can see how this tale ends: With Strong’s world on the horizon.
The next engineered economic crisis, ready to be sprung with a proverbial “flip of the switch,” will certainly be a global one. Yet Strong’s fantasies of Davos hostage takings of over twenty years ago may prove entirely unnecessary at COP21 in our modern era, as nearly all opposition to Agenda 21 on the global stage has been subsumed by its promise of complete technological control and a seat at the “multilateral table.”
You, though, Reader, have no seat at this table. An ostensibly insignificant cog in an international machine; but armed with the knowledge of what is to come, perhaps a cog that may someday soon decide to grind to a halt. This machine, after all, is each and every one of us.

WELCOME BACK CM Pedersen
Heads up folks, this lady is an old friend and activist from my early days in this war of freedom lovers vs. tyrants, and requires your attention when she writes. Believe me; she is qualified to debate any and all subjects about the globalist takeover of planet earth. Without people with her intelligence we would be up the creek without a paddle. She also recommends this 12 minute video, to further support her article below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=josKPWSGpY4
By CM Pedersen
When the 9/11 Commission Report was published the seed of a potential small time bomb was planted in the form of 28 classified pages that we are told explore the question of who financed the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Bankster minion and Globalist Senator Bob Graham has been one of the most vocal politicians of late to float the issue of the redacted pages pointing a finger to intimate “The Saudis did it!” Senator Graham must have forgotten when you point a finger three fingers point back at you.
The mainstream media narrative of this unfolding drama has been to make us believe that the Saudi elites threatened Obama with blackmail in the form of dumping their Treasury bill holdings if members of congress went forward with declassifying the 28 pages. If you think about it, as a blackmail threat goes, it doesn’t make any sense that the Saudis would threaten to sell Treasury bills when far more damage could be done by revealing they were serving the CIA and larger US government apparatus. Why would the US government risk opening that can of worms and why would the Saudi elites risk the wrath of the self-described Masters of The Universe after having witnessed time and time again the brutal repercussions of thumbing a nose at the Global Elite as happened to Hussein and Gaddafi? Saudi Royals must also know the Globalists have the technology to create devastating “natural” disasters, pandemics, and targeted economic crises. Reality is hard ball, not soap opera politics.
The fact of the matter is the Saudi oligarchs have been loyal minions to the New World Order architects for many decades and have been in their clutches to one degree or another since the first Saudi oil fields began production. Saudi elites would not disobey their Masters and therefore as junior globalist mafia members in very good standing would not be targets to be “thrown under the bus”. Case in point, at the behest of their international banker masters. the Saudis spearheaded the formation of the Middle East Regional Governance system in 2011, called the Gulf Cooperation Council with 7 nation members and additional members proposed, modeled after the EU to include harmonization of laws and cultural practices, and a new regional currency – similar to the EU and Euro and the proposed NAU and “Amero”, stepping stones or as Putin approvingly calls regional governance essential “bricks” to build the new international economic order. This strongly indicates Saudi elites are therefore also willing actors in this charade of geopolitical theatrics, the first major scene in the denouement of the dollar reserve system and the rise of Agenda 2030.
So what was the big bugaboo behind this faked geopolitical soap opera spat between the US and Saudi Arabia that sent many alternative media writers into a tizzy? As with all large psychological operations, the motives are many with countless layers of deception folded in. The Saudi red herring narrative has the potential to achieve several objectives. One would be to shake the foundation of trust in the political system to prepare for a new one and weaken a sense of national identity. In this regard, it is important to note as an example of the Globalists‘ increasingly in-our-faces boldness, using their connections in the Establishment Media, last year they floated the notion of the US breaking apart in a Peggy Noonan Wall Street Journal column in which she described a conversation with a very powerful yet unnamed mover and shaker who said a break up of the United States may be on the horizon.
Another motive would be to create more social fracturing given 9/11 as an inside job tends to be a highly volatile issue. This social fracturing is something we are seeing in the Presidential election cycle, an engineered fracturing of Republican voters as well as Left versus Right showdowns as in the instances of Sanders supporters egged on by some Moveon.org organizers to disrupt Trump rallies with Globalist George Soros being a financial contributor to Moveon and other organizations that sponsor raucous protests in the US and around world. The most important rationale would have to be to create a smokescreen for the end of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency. If Americans understood this process was planned long ago by the international bankers to force them on their knees to accept a global currency and loss of sovereignty under a UN world government system of rule, then there would be much greater resistance.
Finally, consider the timing of the bolder re-surfacing of this now old story on the redacted pages. We know we’re on a runaway train headed towards a cashless society, an international bankster controlled global digital currency and global governance. Is it a coincidence the cover article of a 1988 issue of The Economist (a Rothschild publication) displayed an image of a rising Phoenix atop a pile of burning world currencies telling readers to get ready for a global currency dubbed The Phoenix is supposedly set to roll out in the target year 2018.
Just recently the media reported UN Executive Secretary on Climate Change Christiana Figueres announced plans to accelerate implementation of accords signed at the Paris climate summit to go into effect two years earlier, beginning in 2018 rather than 2020. Figueres and her colleague UN IPCC co-chair (2008-2015) Ottmar Edenhofer have both admitted global climate change policy is not about the environment, it is, instead, about transforming the global economic order to “redistribute the world’s wealth by climate policy” and in the process track and monitor every thing you do using RFID biometric technologies – yes, the chip they still want to insert in your body, starting with your pets as being mandated by law in the UK.
Climate Change policies are the drivers of UN Agendas 21 and 2030 and the Paris Climate Pact and virtually every nation state has been implementing these policies economically, socially, politically, and in their infrastructure for more than two decades, since the 1992 Rio Summit and structured by IMF and World Bank dictates. All nations are going down this path, including our supposed enemies, with perhaps the only exception being North Korea kept isolated providing the Globalists with a boogeyman to pull out of their box when needed.
To reiterate, the Saudi Elites are on board with the new global currency and the New World Order Train. They have always been obedient and very compliant junior members of the global mafia – there is no rift, the narratives don’t add up except as a multi-layered psychological operation. Moreover, the Saudis know what is coming and their Mafia Godfather handlers clearly must have given them a heads up when it was time for oil prices to crash because right before oil prices began plummeting, suddenly, the Saudis began feverishly rounding up one million immigrant workers with another million rounded up in subsequent months, two million out of a population of 30 million – on scale equivalent to 22 million immigrants deported out of the US within weeks to months. It was a chaotic scene of angry low level foreign workers shoved into crowded camps for deportation, done so hastily that one media report described a disastrous overflow at a large municipal plant when many of its workers were taken away by authorities.
The Saudi Royals have also been creating a large sovereign investment fund to survive the global economic austerity and strict rationing of energy use to come that will largely dry up their major income source as outlined by Agenda 2030. They know what’s coming. In sharp contrast, the vast majority of humanity doesn’t see the big curve balls coming right at them because they are being distracted with elaborate theater on the national and international stages. It’s time to wake up, get busy, and help others connect the dots. Let’s roll! If you agree, please share this article far and wide. Americans need to find their backbones and derail this madness while we still can.
Footnote: Senator Bob Graham along with Congressman Porter Goss longtime CIA officer recruited in college at Yale, later becoming Director of Central Intelligence and the CIA 2004-2006 and prior to that was appointed ambassador to the UN, met with Pakistan ISI General Mahmud Ahmed on the morning of 9/11 and shortly after the attacks it was discovered that General Mahmud Ahmed was behind Ahmad Umar Sheikh’s $100,000 money wire transfer to 9/11 terrorist ringleader Mohammed Atta. The only action taken against the Pakistani ISI General was he was fired from his position at the insistence of US political leaders and was apparently not questioned about his role as the public was not informed of any investigation into the matter, the original details having been revealed by investigative journalists rather than US officials.

By Peter Koenig
April 24, 2016 “Information Clearing House” – On 19 April 2016, China was rolling out its new gold-backed yuan. Russia’s ruble has been fully supported by gold for the last couple of years. Nobody in the western media talks about it. Why would they? – A western reader may start wondering why he is constantly stressed by a US dollar based fiat monetary systems that is manipulated at will by a small elite of financial oligarchs for their benefit and to the detriment of the common people.
In a recent Russia Insider article, Sergey Glaziev, one of Russia’s top economists and advisor to President Putin said about Russia’s currency, “The ruble Is the most gold-backed currency in the world”. He went on explaining that the amount of rubles circulating is covered by about twice the amount of gold in Russia’s Treasury.
In addition to a financial alliance, Russia and China also have developed in the past couple of years their own money transfer system, the China International Payment System, or the CIPS network which replaces the western transfer system, SWIFT, for Russian-Chinese internal trading. SWIFT, stands for the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, a network operating in 215 countries and territories and used by over 10,000 financial institutions.
Up until recently almost every international monetary transaction had to use SWIFT, a private institution, based in Belgium. ‘Private’ like in the US Federal Reserve Bank (FED), Wall Street banks and the Bank for International Settlements (BIS); all are involved in international monetary transfers and heavily influenced by the Rothschild family. No wonder that the ‘independent’ SWIFT plays along with Washington’s sanctions, for example, cutting off Iran from the international transfer system. Similarly, Washington used its arm-twisting with SWIFT to help Paul Singer’s New York Vulture Fund to extort more than 4 billion dollars from Argentina, by withholding Argentina’s regular debt payments as was agreed with 93% of all creditors. Eventually Argentina found other ways of making its payments, not to fall into disrepute and insolvency.
All of this changed for Argentina, when Mauricio Macri, the new neoliberal President put in place by Washington, appeared on the scene last December. He reopened the negotiations and is ready to pay a sizable junk of this illegal debt, despite a UN decision that a country that reaches a settlement agreement with the majority of the creditors is not to be pressured by non-conforming creditors. In the case of Argentina, the vulture lord bought the country’s default debt for a pittance and now that the nation’s economy had recovered he wants to make a fortune on the back of the population. This is how our western fraudulent monetary system functions.
China’s economy has surpassed that of the United States and this new eastern alliance is considered an existential threat to the fake western economy. CIPS, already used for trading and monetary exchange within China and Russia, is also applied by the remaining BRICS, Brazil, India and South Africa; and by the members of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), plus India, Pakistan and Iran, as well as the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU – Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia and Tajikistan). It is said that CIPS is ready to be launched worldwide as early as September 2016. It would be a formidable alternative to the western dollar based monetary Ponzi scheme.
The new eastern monetary sovereignty is one of the major reasons why Washington tries so hard to destroy the BRICS, mainly China and Russia – and lately with a special effort of false accusations also Brazil through a Latin America type Color Revolution.
In addition, the Yuan late last year was accepted by the IMF in its SDR basket as the fifth reserve currency, the other four being the US dollar, the British pound, the euro and the Japanese yen. The SDR, or Special Drawing Right, functions like a virtual currency. It is made up of the weighted average of the five currencies and can be lent to countries at their request, as a way of reducing exchange risks. Being part of the SDR, the yuan has become an official reserve currency. In fact, in Asia the yuan is already heavily used in many countries’ treasuries, as an alternative to the ever more volatile US dollar.
It is no secret, the western dollar-led fiat monetary system is on its last leg – as eventually any Ponzi scheme will be. What does ‘fiat’ mean? It is money created out of thin air. It has no backing whatsoever; not gold, not even the economic output generated by the country or countries issuing the money, i.e. the United States of America and Europe. It is simply declared “legal tender’’ by Government decree.
No pyramid scheme is sustainable in the long run and eventually will collapse. It was invented and is used by a small invisible upper crest of elite making insane amounts of profit on the back of the 99% of us. Since these elitists are in control of the media with their lie propaganda, as well as the warmongering killing machine, US armed forces, NATO, combined with the international security and spy apparatus, CIA, MI6, Mossad, DGSE, the German Federal Intelligence Service (BND) and more, we are powerless – but powerless only as long as we ignore what’s really going on behind the curtain.
Our western monetary system is based on debt has all the hallmarks of a failing global monster octopus. The US banking system was deregulated in the 1990’s by President Clinton. The European vassals followed suit in the early 2000’s. About 97% of all the money in circulation in the western world is ‘made’ by private banks by a mouse click in the form of ‘loans’ or debt. Every loan a private bank hands out is a liability on that bank’s books; a liability that bears interest, the key generator of the banks’ profits. Profit from thin air! No work, no production, no real added value to the economy.
If and when the banks within this web of debt begin recalling their outstanding liabilities, they may set a non-stoppable avalanche in motion – leading to a chaotic end of the system. This end-run may have just begun. We have seen a gradual build-up since the end of WWII with the armament of the Cold War farce, and a high point with the manufactured sub-prime crisis of 2007 / 2008 / 2009, prompting an artificial and endless global economic crisis which may come crashing down in 2016 / 2017.
The damage may be humongous, leaving behind chaos, poverty, famine, misery – death. With the invisible ruling elite having cashed in, remaining on top and being liable to start again from scratch. – If we let them. It always boils down to the same: An uninformed people can be manipulated at will and is left in awe when hit by unexpected events, like acts of terror by bombs or banks.
Let us be crystal clear – we are all uninformed as long as we listen to and believe in the mainstream media – which are controlled by six Anglo-Zionist media giants, feeding the western public with 90% of the information, the so-called ‘news’ that we consume so eagerly every day; the barrage of lies that repeat themselves in every western country every hour on the hour – and, thus, become the truth. Period.
We must get out of our comfortable armchairs, listen to that innermost spark in the back of our minds, telling us against all avalanches of lies that there is something wrong, that we are being fed deception. We have to dig for the truth. And it is there – on internet, on alternative media, like Global Research, Information Clearing House, VNN, The Saker, NEO, Russia Today, Sputnik News, PressTV, TeleSUR – and many more credible sources of truth-seekers.
Back to the impending collapse. – The ground rules for our pyramid monetary scheme have been laid in 1913 by the creation of the FED. Again, the FED is an entirely private, Rothschild dominated banking institution that serves as the US Central Bank. It is the omnipotent dollar making machine. It was fraudulently and secretly conceived in 1910 on Jekyll Island, Georgia, and described by Jekyll Island history (http://www.jekyllislandhistory.com/federalreserve.shtml ) as the “duck hunt” which
“included Senator Nelson Aldrich, his personal secretary Arthur Shelton, former Harvard University professor of economics Dr. A. Piatt Andrew, J.P. Morgan & Co. partner Henry P. Davison, National City Bank president Frank A. Vanderlip and Kuhn, Loeb, and Co. partner Paul M. Warburg. From the start the group proceeded covertly. They began by shunning the use of their last names and met quietly at Aldrich’s private railway car in New Jersey.”
The concoction of these secretive “duck hunters” became in 1913 the privately owned Rothschild dominated Federal Reserve System, the US central bank by deceit.
After signing the FED act into existence, President Woodrow Wilson declared,
“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.”
The Anglo-Saxon system had a central bank in England since way back in 1694. It was then already controlled by the Rothschilds, as was the entire banking system. Baron Nathan Mayer Rothschild once declared:
“I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man that controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.”
The Rothschild family’s fortune cannot be properly estimated, but it must be in the trillions. What Baron Nathan Mayer Rothschild may have said some 300 years ago, still holds true to this day.
No wonder, breaking loose of this sham monetary scheme is number one priority of most countries that treasure sovereignty, autonomy and freedom, though they do not dare say so openly, lest the empire lashes out at them punishing them with the very financial terror they want to escape from. And lashing out at the unaligned world the empire does, like a dying beast, attempting to pull with it much of the living world into its own shoveled grave.
Is it therefore coincidence or a rather a purposefully planned convergence of several events as a last ditch effort first to ravage then to salvage as much as possible before the collapse?
On 10 April, Zero Hedge reports “Austria Just Announced A 54% Haircut of Senior Creditors in First “Bail In” Under New European Rules”. The Austrian “bad bank”, the failed Hypo Alpe Adria, that became Heta Asset Resolution AG after the government’s nationalization, found a US$ 8.5 billion hole in its balance sheet, enough to trigger the new European ‘bail-in’ rule. Is it coincidence that also in Austria a major bank failure triggered the Great Depression also on a 10th of April – in 1931? – This is a first in Europe. Be prepared for others to follow, as over-extension of European banks is estimated in excess of a trillion dollars.
On 15 April, the New York Times reported that – Five of Wall Street’s eight largest banks are in defiance of the US banking regulator. The FED and FDIC said that “JP Morgan, Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, State Street and Bank of New York, all lacked ‘credible‘ plans to enter bankruptcy in the event of a financial crisis.” These banks have until October 2016 to comply. Under the new rules a tax-payer bail-out would be unlikely. Hence ‘bail-ins’ could affect millions of depositors and shareholders, their funds being stolen in order to self-rescue the too-big-to-fail banks. After all, non-compliance with the regulator’s requests, or insolvency, can easily be manufactured as a legal base for stealing common people’s savings. No worries, the TBTF banks will not go away, but your savings may.
The CIA released Panama Papers (for who still doubts about the CIA involvement in the release of the Panama Papers,
read here http://journal-neo.org/2016/04/09/the-panama-papers-the-people-deceived/),
aimed in a most rudimentary way at defaming the ‘usual suspects’, Presidents Putin and Assad, as well as Iran, Venezuela, Brazil, of course – and others. Strangely no notable EU or US citizens or corporations were on the list. Would anybody seriously believe that Mr. Putin, a former KGB agent, would be so ignorant as to putting his fortune (even if he had any to hide) into Panama, the epitome of a US puppet state, where you can’t flush a toilet without Washington knowing it?
Some token neocons appear in the published papers, like Argentina’s new ‘Washington appointed’ President Mauricio Macri, who is running amok ruining his country. Within less than four months he has rolled Argentina’s economy back by ten years, raising poverty from below 10% in November 2015 to 34% by the end March 2016. The Empire needs him to keep gradually turning Argentina into chaos, however not too quickly, lest he may be ‘deposed’ and replaced by a US adversary – that would not at all be appreciated in Washington. For the types of Macri that made it on the list, the Panama Papers are a warning signal to keep them in-check.
The publication of the Panama Papers may also be an incentive for US citizens and corporations to bring home trillions of undeclared dollar holdings stacked away in overseas tax havens into homeland financial shelters like those in Delaware, Wyoming, South Dakota and Nevada, thereby helping strengthen the gradually decaying dollar.
Simultaneously, some European countries and Japan introduced negative interest rates, so as to increase monetary liquidity, thereby hoping stimulating an ever stagnant economy. That’s the pretext. In reality however, negative interests are but a precursor to a wholly bank controlled financial system. Normally ‘bail-ins’ and negative interest would cause a run on the banks. This has not happened yet.
In Switzerland, one of the first countries to introduce negative interests, the Swiss National Bank reported that the demand of the 1,000 franc notes – one of the world’s highest value denominations (apparently to be maintained despite ECB Draghi’s call for elimination of high denomination bank notes) – increased by 17% (by CHF 4.7 billion – US$ 4.85 billion) in December 2014, the month following the introduction of negative interests. May it be an indication that the Swiss have quietly started hoarding big-denomination cash?
Future hoarding and runs on the banks will be countered by the introduction of a cashless society, i.e. all monetary transactions will gradually become electronic. The process has already begun. In Sweden and other parts of Europe, as well as Japan, cashless supermarkets and department stores claim big success, especially with the young consumers, who happily play along paying electronic cashiers by swiping their cell phones in front of an electronic eye.
The Young and Innocent – if they only knew that the banking oligarchs want to control their money and enslave them with a ‘fun gadget’, they may decide to resist. But well know those who control the system that the young are the drivers of the future. We, the old resistance will eventually die out. Problem solved. – But we are not dead yet. The Times are A-Changing… (Bob Dylan, 1964).
The nefarious trio – ‘bail-ins’, negative interests, and a cash free society – will make living in the industrialized ‘first world’ a sheer nuisance, a stressful dance on toes, as the emperor’s proverbial Damocles Sword hangs intimidatingly above us.
Washington may have one last joker up its sleeve – reintroducing the ‘gold standard’, the very gold standard that Nixon abandoned in 1971. The US have also been accumulating huge amounts of gold over the past 25 years. A new US dollar gold standard would most likely be set at a ratio that would wipe out all US debt, including future ‘unmet obligations’ (GAO – General Accounting Office) of about US$ 125 trillion. It would attempt to keep the western industrialized world in Washington’s orbit, but might lose most of the developing world owning natural resources coveted by the west. These countries oppressed and colonized for centuries are likely to gravitate to the new China-Russia alliance – leaving the outsourced and outwitted west alone without workforce – and with a massive but outdated military power.
To counter the build-up of this criminal last ditch sham by the western Zionist banking czars, China and Russia have been preparing over the last few years an independent financial system, delinked from the US dollar and which now incorporates the BRICS, the SCO nations, as well as the Eurasian Economic Union. This association of countries and economies account for about half the world’s population and at least one third of the globe’s economic output; a fact totally ignored by the mainstream media, for obvious reasons. The Machiavellian sinking ship does not want its passengers to jump to safety.
The 19 April 2016, announcement by China of its gold-backed yuan, no longer convertible into dollars, may just trigger an economic shift into the ‘eastern camp’. Many countries are wary and tired of western exploitation, enslavement, threats of sanctions, oppression and an ever present danger of invasion by the killing machine. The decoupling of the dollar by a third of the world economy may indeed open new horizons, creating new alliances, new hope for a more equal and just world.

TN Note: The infiltration of Technocratic thinking into the media has resulted in a dumbing-down of journalists everywhere. Lies are mistaken for truth, certainty replaces uncertainty, blind acceptance replaces skepticism. Investigative journalism does not investigate any more.
World press freedom deteriorated in 2015, especially in the Americas, advocacy group Reporters Without Borders said Wednesday as it released its annual rankings, warning of “a new era of propaganda”.
The World Press Freedom Index ranks 180 countries on indicators such as media independence, self-censorship, the rule of law, transparency and abuses.
This year’s report warned of a climate of fear that has seen world leaders “developing a form of paranoia about legitimate journalism.”
Christophe Deloire, secretary general of the Paris-based group told AFP there had been a decline in all parts of the world, with Latin America of particular concern.
“All of the indicators show a deterioration. Numerous authorities are trying to regain control of their countries, fearing overly open public debate,” he said.
“Today, it is increasingly easy for powers to appeal directly to the public through new technologies, and so there is a greater degree of violence against those who represent independent information,” he added.
“We are entering a new era of propaganda where new technologies allow the low-cost dissemination of their own communication, their information, as dictated. On the other side, journalists are the ones who get in the way.”
The situation was particularly grave in Latin America, the report said, highlighting “institutional violence” in Venezuela and Ecuador, organised crime in Honduras, impunity in Colombia, corruption in Brazil and media concentration in Argentina as the main obstacles to press freedom.
Among the lowest ranked countries were Syria, at 177th place out of 180, just below China (176th) but above North Korea (179th) and last placed Eritrea.
Japan slumped to 72nd due to what the watchdog identified as self-censorship towards Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, while Finland retained its top spot for the sixth consecutive year, followed by the Netherlands and Norway.
– Europe on ‘downhill course’ –
While Europe remained the region with the most press freedom, Reporters Without Borders warned that the misuse of counter-terrorist and counter-espionage measures and conflicts of interest had put it on “a downhill course”.
You do not have to take my word for it, and only your lack of attention is why you are losing your freedom of speech everywhere, not just on the internet. The constant barrage of social control is not always apparent to the more liberal minded, or entertainment junkies. And once you have acquiesced to the lost of freedom you never recognize life is any different. It is like a slow growing cancer that eats your brain. It is high time you demand your first amendment rights and support freedom of the press and speech everywhere. The technocrats are insatiable in their pursuit of absolute social control. Their methods are slow and relentless so as not to shock us, and deal with rebellion. You simply cannot continue ignoring our subjection.

The Best of Jack Perry
I’ve received emails from folks asking my opinion on “How’s it all going to end?” As in, what major crisis is going to finally cause the American Giant to fall down and go boom? Guess what? There won’t be a major crisis that does it. It’s going to be a slow cascade reaction of crisis and disasters. What’s more, it has already begun. We’ve already seen several of these disasters. More are on the way. The end has begun and is upon us.
Now, if you want to see what it will look like, have a look at Detroit. Here’s a city that was THE epicenter of American vehicle manufacturing. The pride of American can-do hoo-ha and all that jazz. In fact, I’m going to coin that phrase into a word to describe American arrogance: American Candohooha. I know, it sounds like a river back east, but let’s use it anyway. American Candohooha supported a population of over a million people in Detroit. All kinds of snazzy buildings and houses. They thought it’d last forever. Kind of like the ghost towns you find out here where I live. They thought that would last forever, too, and now you need a topo map to find these places.
Detroit now has about 700,000 people. They had something like 70,000 abandoned buildings. People starting fires left and right in them, sometimes up to 30 fires a night. The fire department was stretched to the limit and finally, a new fire commissioner said let fires in abandoned buildings just burn. Don’t fight them. Wake up, America: This is your future. Detroit declared bankruptcy. This is where all major cities are eventually headed. AmericanCandohooha is the past. What, the federal government is coming to save you? Did they save Detroit? Think about it. If the federal government really cared about Detroit, do you think they’d have let an epidemic of arson like that continue? No. They’d have called it “terrorism” and there would have been tanks and troops patrolling those neighborhoods with orders to shoot arsonists on sight and they’d have sent in a thousand fire engines and an army of federal firefighters. But Detroit has no value to the feds. Obviously.
The federal government knows something many of us don’t want to admit. Eventually, several regions in the United States are going to cascade into collapse a lot quicker as they gain momentum. It’s like an avalanche. It begins with the loss of manufacturing economies in cities where that is the lifeblood of that city. Once that’s gone, the tax base that supports the infrastructure goes away. Thus, you can’t really afford to take care of it anymore. Then with all the abandoned buildings, the fires begin. Before you know it, the place looks like Berlin in 1945. That’s what happened to Detroit. That is the future of America as a whole.
The feds are probably trying to figure out exactly what they’re going to be able to hold onto and consolidate as the “United States”. Some regions are probably going to slowly move towards secession not because of political ideology, but for mere survival. Look, the feds sat there and let Detroit burn night after night and couldn’t care less. Not every state or region is going to accept that from them. Not the Southwest I know. I would say we could look to probably Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and possibly Utah and Colorado forming a new nation of their own once their major cities start burning. California will be crapping bricks within a couple years because we’ll block them from the Colorado River water. Arizona is already saying we need to start pinching off California’s access to that water because of an epic drought we’ve got going on here.
See, some regions are going to have to shake themselves out into a new nation that can pursue its own economic future. The United States federal government is fresh out of ideas. What, another housing boom? Huh, that’ll buy them, what, six years at best? Let me say this: The feds are looking for their own survival, not the survival of the nation as a whole. Detroit proves it. That right there is what they’re going to do. They’re going to basically let everything happen and think they can hold on to some power center and the military and force us to pay taxes. That’s easier planned in the Pentagon than done.
The feds control nuclear weapons, yes. But understand this: Every state that has a nuclear power plant can build them. Yes, even the predominantly liberal state of California could have a nuclear weapon probably within a year if they decided they needed one. Delivery vehicles are not that hard to build, either. Any state with a railroad would be able to construct a basically un-targetable system such as the old MX was supposed to be. The military even studied using railroads for that back during the Cold War. Therefore, it won’t be the 1860s all over again like the Civil War. It’ll be a domestic Cuban Missile Crisis. But with a twist.
The natural resources are going to be up for grabs. The feds will want to control it, but they can’t. Not if autonomous regions spring up and declare themselves to be nations because the feds basically sat there and let their cities burn to the ground. Those states that become nations will control those resources—water, food, oil, and natural gas—and the feds based in the East will be SOL for the most part. Why and how? Because when a region declares itself to be an independent nation, they will probably build themselves a military alliance with Russia, who’ll get perhaps a naval base on the coast of Texas, plus an air force base. Would Russia do that? Why not? There would be a chance to carve the United States juggernaut into manageable pieces and negate them as a future threat. If a large chunk of what was America became an ally of Russia, so much the better for the Russians.
The mistake the Confederates made was not seeking a powerful ally before the war. They also didn’t have the industrial power the North had. But times are different now. The home field of the federal government—the East—is no longer an economic powerhouse. It’s a financial powerhouse. Once the federal money has no value beyond tinder, they will have no power at all, save for a few nuclear weapons they were able to fly into the area. They won’t have the industrial base they had in the past. Look at Detroit. The industrial power now is spread out. The agricultural regions are also quite far off. The feds will not hold on to power more than a decade or two once this process starts gathering momentum.
The end is not near. The end has begun. You wanted to know how it will end? Well, take a look around. You’re living in it. If you live in a major city, you already know this or suspect this. If you live in a rural area, you already know the federal government could disappear tomorrow and it wouldn’t affect you that much. We’re not going to fall into some dystopian dog-eat-dog future. We’re going to cease to be the United States and become a collection of different countries. The Southwest will be one. California will probably be its very own, or combine with Oregon and Washington state. The Midwest might be another. They’ll all gather up National Guard resources and abandoned federal military equipment and create their own militaries. Each will pursue international relations of their own. They might all sign a non-aggression pact, but California will learn the Southwest has them outgunned and have to find other water resources. Or trade for it.
The trade between these autonomous regions would be a true trade. Not exchange of happy meal toys for pieces of paper called “dollars”. Oil would be directly traded for food, food for water, and so forth. Each region would be able to create its own currency and here is where we’d finally see a return to gold and silver currency. I daresay other countries in the world would clamor more to trade with these countries than they did with the former United States. Lots of trade can be done without the feds saying, “You can’t do that!” or “There’s a 65% excise tax on that product!”
People have this idea that the United States must remain united. Why? Many regions have different interests. Like a relationship that went sour, this federal government thing was nice when times were good, but we need to move on. We need to see other people, or rather, see different flags flying above our state capitols. We’re different people now. That’s not a bad thing, it just means we need to stop trying to pound every square and triangular peg into the round hole. The federal government cannot administer this entire country anymore. Look at Detroit. Look at the blighted areas of every major city. Not to mention the aggressive nature of the federal government in terms of cataclysmic wars it starts all over the planet.
Soon, it will become apparent all over America that the future for them looks like Detroit. Detroit was the first sign of the terminal illness that will fill the federal government. In time, regions will learn they need to break away for their own survival. Political ideology will not sell people on secession. But half the supermarkets empty and the other half on fire will. Because the cascade towards that has begun and cannot be stopped. It’s nothing to be afraid of. Nothing is permanent. Governments arise and pass away, like the Romans. Rome is gone, but Italy is there. The United States, too, will pass away. But new nations with better futures will arise.

Please understand that I am not a “tub-thumper”, an enthusiast, or an apologist for Donald Trump. But his electrifying emergence on the scene represents a sea-change in American politics far more consequential than his own pyrotechnic personality, bold campaign-style, and receipt of popular enthusiasm suggest. He is, as it were, the surfer who—perhaps by accident, perhaps by insight, but in any event in a timely fashion—has caught the first of the really big waves rolling towards shore. The significant aspect of the present situation is not the surfer, however, but the wave: namely, the upsurge of popular disgust for the “two”-party political vessel in which this country is sailing on a collision-course into the rocks of despair. This first big wave threatens all of the ships riding at anchor in the Establishment’s harbor. So the Establishment needs to throw up a breakwater, in a manner both fast and furious.
As anyone with 20-20 political vision can see, America’s domestic enemies have taken off their velvet gloves to reveal the iron fists underneath, by employing against Trump directly, and America ultimately, the modern Bolshevistic strategy of socio-political destabilization through so-called “non-violent direct action”, “weathermen” tactics, and “color revolutions”—all in line with the old Leninist/Stalinist slogan, “there are no fortresses which Bolsheviks cannot storm”. Please refrain from chiding me that the contemporary Establishment is not, to one degree or another, made up largely of Bolsheviks. The opposite is obviously true. Some are retreaded Trotskyites (who call themselves “neoconservatives”). Others are watered-down Mensheviks (who call themselves “social democrats” or “moderate socialists”). Others are the equivalent of NEP-men (better known here as “corporate socialists”, because they rely on governmental intervention in the economy to guarantee profits for themselves, while offloading losses onto the backs of the general public). And all of them are doctrinaire Leninists, inasmuch as they subscribe to his notion that “[t]he scientific term ‘dictatorship’ means nothing more nor less than authority untrammeled by any laws, absolutely unrestricted by any rules whatever, and based directly on force”. Vladimir I. Lenin, “A Contribution to the History of the Question of the Dictatorship, A Note” , in Collected Works (Moscow, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics: Progress Publishers, 4th English Edition, 1966), Volume 31, at 353. None of these people gives a tinker’s dam for the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution—indeed, they believe themselves to be “untrammeled by any laws”. And all of them enthusiastically promote the present-day global “war on terrorism”, under color of which a para-militarized police-state apparatus, “absolutely unrestricted by any rules whatever, and based directly on force”, is being built up within this country in order to wage a domestic “war of terrorism” against the American people. See my book By Tyranny Out of Necessity: The Bastardy of “Martial Law” for the particulars on this.
If I may base my appreciation of the present situation upon an historical parallel drawn from Germany’s dolorous experience under the Weimar government in the 1920s and 1930s (which is probably familiar to most readers of this commentary), the advent of these bare-knuckled mass assaults on this country amounts to our own home-grown Bolsheviks’ declaration of ein Kampf um die Macht auf Leben und Tod (a struggle for power to the death). They will employ their Rotfrontkämpferbund (Red Front fighters’ league) to try to derail Trump’s nomination, through die Herrschaft des Pöbels auf der Straße (mobocracy in the street). If he is nominated, they will use der Bund to try to deny him election. If he is elected notwithstanding all of their efforts before November, they will then turn der Bund loose to stifle any major reforms which he attempts to put through after his inauguration, whether with or especially without Congress, the Judiciary, and the bureaucracy behind him. And please spare me the innuendo that, by drawing upon this parallel, I am somehow suggesting that Trump is a modern American “Hitler” figure. Rather, my intuition tells me that Trump is the sort of individual, perhaps rough-hewn but basically honest, who might have saved Germany from Hitlerism, as well as from Bolshevism, had the good Germans who came forward in der Wiederstand (the resistance-movement) after 1933 been more prescient and better organized before then.
One may ask why America’s Bolsheviks have decided to come out of the closet to exhibit their true coloration by unleashing mobocracy in the street, when they can (and surely will) employ every kind of old-fashioned fraud familiar in American politics to steal the election. The answer is that they anticipate their inability to put into practice Stalin’s apperçu that who votes is less important than who counts the votes, and are prudently preparing for the worst possible eventuality—namely, that in these unsettled times even widespread electoral fraud may not deprive Trump of victory if the polling-places are inundated by a true “revolt of the masses”. Moreover, even the most effective techniques of electoral fraud will be useless after the election. No further elections of consequence will be held during the first two years in which Trump holds “the Office of President”. If he cannot be stifled during that period, perhaps “the Trump phenomenon” will prove its worth in successful Presidential actions, and then will demonstrate its longevity and strength in the next elections—with the Bolsheviks suffering defeat after defeat. Between elections, the Bolsheviks will not be able to rely exclusively upon their co-conspirators, fellow travelers, dupes, useful idiots, and assorted fools in Congress, the Judiciary, and the bureaucracy to stand up to Trump. For the righteous anger of legions of patriotic Americans lined up behind him will give all of them pause. To put iron in their cronies’ backbones, the Bolsheviks will need to provide them with muscle in the streets: namely, hordes of well-funded, well-drilled “protesters” and “dissenters” deployed to shout down, or violently shut down, every popular manifestation of support for Trump.
So, as President, Trump—and all of the patriotic Americans in his camp—will desperately need the Militia:
(i) to awaken, energize, authorize, mobilize, organize, equip, train, and deploy on his behalf those whom the Declaration of Independence styles “the good People”;
(ii) to protect Trump himself—because no part of the present governmental apparatus at any level of the federal system can be trusted to do so;
(iii) to put through fundamental reforms that can be accomplished by the President alone (“to execute the Laws of the Union”, including both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, perforce of Article I, § 8, cl. 15 and such statutes as 8 U.S.C. § 1182(f); 10 U.S.C. §§ 332 and 333; and 18 U.S.C. §§ 241 and 242), in particular against entrenched, recalcitrant, hostile, and disloyal bureaucrats and subversive private factions and other NGOs and special-interest groups; and especially
(iv) to leave puissant governmental institutions for “the good People” to use on their own at the State and Local levels in the event of an unavoidable and utterly destabilizing national crisis, probably centered in banking and haute finance, which breaks out during his Presidency.
With respect to points (ii) and (iii) in particular, one might recall the wisdom of General William Tecumseh Sherman who, when importuned to make himself a candidate for the White House, replied that “I would account myself a fool, a madman, an ass, to embark anew, at sixty-five years of age, in a career that may, at any moment, become tempest-tossed by the perfidy, the defalcation, the dishonesty or neglect of any of a hundred thousand subordinates utterly unknown to the President of the United States.” Quoted in Burke Davis, Sherman’s March (New York, New York: Vantage Books, 1988), at 298.
Inasmuch as der Rotfrontkämpferbund is now being deployed, a counterrevolutionary “white” force must be mobilized to oppose and defeat it. If loyal Americans want to avoid witnessing the rise of some extreme “right-wing” (actually, “right-socialistic”) “brown” force such as die Sturmabteilung (by default the main counterweight to the Communist street-gangs in Weimar Germany during her time of troubles)—which many desperate Americans will demand, and not a few will surely join, if they are offered no other powerful alternative—something else must be provided for them. This force must be raised from among “the good People”, there being no other source with the necessary loyalty, legal authority, self-interest, and sheer numbers requisite for the task at hand. Especially, it must be a force with explicit and unequivocal authority under the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, an establishment within the government, not a force the provenance of which can be traced only to some private political party, movement, or group.
Therefore, if Trump actually intends to be a constitutional “Commander in Chief” in the fullest sense in both law and fact—and, Heaven knows, if he does not intend as much then he should emulate General Sherman by not seeking “the Office of President” at all—he needs to promote the exercise of that high authority against America’s domestic enemies, through exhortation for and mobilization of what the Constitution itself declares to be uniquely “necessary to the security of a free State”, and to which it explicitly assigns the authority and responsibility “to execute the Laws of the Union”—and he must do this, in both words and deeds, immediately if not sooner. This is no time to play for time; for, as the old saying has it, time brings all things, bad as well as good. During his campaign, he must advocate revitalization of the Militia; and, after his election, he must take every action necessary and proper to that end. I suspect that, if he does grasp that nettle, he will be able to say of the contemporary Establishment what General Sherman said of the old Confederacy: “pierce the shell, and it’s all hollow inside”.
On the other hand, if—Heaven forfend!—Hillary Clinton should seize “the Office of President”, either by her own devices or (more likely) with the aid of anti-Trump back-stabbers in the Republican Party or some third-party “spoiler” candidate (from such as the Libertarian Party, which disastrously split the conservative vote in favor of a dyed-in-the-wool Clintonite in the last gubernatorial election in Virginia), she and the Bolsheviks behind her will not sit on their hands. Instead, emboldened by their triumph in scotching Trump, they will turn out der Rotfrontkämpferbund to advance their revolutionary agenda by deploying das Faustrecht (mob rule by the fist) against all of the “constitutionalist”, “patriotic”, “conservative”, “traditionalist”, and other politically, economically, and culturally “right-wing” groups in the country: First, to intimidate them and anyone who even tangentially supports them. Second, to turn the undecided citizenry against them when they try to defend themselves (denouncing even their verbal self-defense as “incitement to violence”). And third, to unleash para-militarized police-state oppression, some species of “martial law” jury-rigged under color of “emergency powers”, Vyshinsky-type prosecutors, and the kangaroo courts to suppress whichever Americans try to stand up for their natural and constitutional rights. This, the Bolsheviks expect, will bring about die Endlösung (the final solution) of the problems of popular sovereignty and popular self-government which so vex all totalitarians.
Be forewarned. One need not be a dabbler in the occult to foretell the future in this respect. Neither need one be much of a student of modern history to fear the accuracy in these times of the old adages that “no one learns anything from history other than that no one ever learns anything from history”, and that “we grow too soon old and too late smart”. (Personally, too, I appreciate the wisdom of the observation that “no man is ever taken for a prophet in his own country”. For I have long been struggling to educate Americans about the Militia—and, most recently, about the utter illegality of “martial law”—with about as much success as if I had been trying to sell a twelve-step program in humility and reticence to the Kardashians.)
Nonetheless, I believe that Mao Tse-tung was correct (albeit perhaps only accidentally or hypocritically so) when he wrote that “[t]he people, and the people alone, are the motive force in the making of world history”, that “[t]he masses have boundless creative power”, and that
[a]ll reactionaries are paper tigers. In appearance, the reactionaries are terrifying, but in reality they are not so powerful. From a long-term point of view, it is not the reactionaries but the people who are really powerful.
Quotations from Chairman Mao Tse-tung (Peking, China: Foreign Languages Press, 1966), at 118, 118, and 72. Thus, to turn the Bolsheviks’ own slogan to the purpose of America’s salvation: “There are no fortresses which ‘the good People’ cannot storm.”
In the final analysis, it is critically important that Trump should turn to “the good People”, trust “the good People”, empower “the good People”, and rely upon “the good People”. Not only for his own sake (which in the great scheme of things amounts to little), but also for their sake first and foremost (which amounts to everything). As modern Presidential campaigns illustrate, this country is steeped in its own bastard version of das Führerprinzip (the leader principle). As early as 1933, America had her “Chief” (Roosevelt), just as Germany had her Führer (Hitler), Italy her Duce (Mussolini), and Russia her Vozhd’ (Stalin), to be followed not long afterwards by Red China with her “Great Helmsman” (Mao). Today, all too many Americans view a President as someone whose purpose is to advance the agenda of their political party or special-interest group, not someone who should act unselfishly with and through WE THE PEOPLE so that THE PEOPLE themselves can become permanently the masters of their own destiny.
Such approval of, or at least acquiescence in, rule from “the top down” must in short order prove fatal to popular self-government. In principle, it denies the precept of the Declaration that “Governments * * * instituted among Men derive their just powers from the consent of the governed”—not from acceptance by “the governed” of “the leader’s” mere assertions of authority. In practice, it generates increasingly uncritical support for “the leader’s” program, then increasingly blind obedience to his dictates. Until society arrives at the terminal stage of suicidal political regimentation: Führer befehl, wir folgen (leader command, we follow).
Just as the strength of any pyramid resides at its base, not at its apex, so, too, with popular sovereignty—and with the Power of the Sword in WE THE PEOPLE’S hands for the purpose of “execut[ing] the Laws of the Union” through the Militia. In a constitutional republic, true authority and legitimate power never descend from “the top down”, but always arise—indeed, can be generated and exercised only—from “the bottom up”. Trump’s greatest achievement (were he capable of any truly great achievement) would be to put this truth into action. By one segment of the population he will be damned if he does; and, by another segment, damned if he does not; so he may as well be taken for a goat rather than a sheep. That goes for the rest of us, too.

It is exceedingly depressing that so many otherwise intelligent citizens have entered this election circus with renewed hope that a savior is in the race. I would bet all of my Children, Grand Children, and Great Grand Children’s lives that every single person running for President is under the thumb of the Banking Cartel. For those poor souls who still believe they are electing anyone, shame on you! The evidence that America is an oligarchy made-up of International Bankers, and the people have no power to elect a garbage pickup crew is the only sure bet in this Nation of beguiled fools. There is one, and only one way for America to elect their own leaders and Mr. Vieira has laid it all out above. If America does not have the guts to form a Constitutional Militia it is a Nation of fools, because that is the only way this Cluster F#$k will be fixed. Not in a day, and not in a year, but slowly like grass growing in summer; power will be transferred to the people.

Saint or Sinner, Government Eyes Are Watching Every Move You Make
By John W. Whitehead
April 18, 2016
This commentary is also
available at www.rutherford.org.
“The way things are supposed to work is that we’re supposed to know virtually everything about what [government officials] do: that’s why they’re called public servants. They’re supposed to know virtually nothing about what we do: that’s why we’re called private individuals. This dynamic – the hallmark of a healthy and free society – has been radically reversed. Now, they know everything about what we do, and are constantly building systems to know more. Meanwhile, we know less and less about what they do, as they build walls of secrecy behind which they function. That’s the imbalance that needs to come to an end. No democracy can be healthy and functional if the most consequential acts of those who wield political power are completely unknown to those to whom they are supposed to be accountable.” ― Glenn Greenwald
Government eyes are watching you.
They see your every move: what you read, how much you spend, where you go, with whom you interact, when you wake up in the morning, what you’re watching on television and reading on the internet.
Every move you make is being monitored, mined for data, crunched, and tabulated in order to form a picture of who you are, what makes you tick, and how best to control you when and if it becomes necessary to bring you in line.
Simply by liking or sharing this article on Facebook or retweeting it on Twitter, you’re most likely flagging yourself as a potential renegade, revolutionary or anti-government extremist—a.k.a. terrorist.
Yet whether or not you like or share this particular article, simply by reading it or any other articles related to government wrongdoing, surveillance, police misconduct or civil liberties is enough to get you categorized as a particular kind of person with particular kinds of interests that reflect a particular kind of mindset that might just lead you to engage in a particular kinds of activities.
Chances are, as the Washington Post reports, you have already been assigned a color-coded threat score—green, yellow or red—so police are forewarned about your potential inclination to be a troublemaker depending on whether you’ve had a career in the military, posted a comment perceived as threatening on Facebook, suffer from a particular medical condition, or know someone who knows someone who might have committed a crime.
In other words, you might already be flagged as potentially anti-government in a government database somewhere—Main Core, for example—that identifies and tracks individuals who aren’t inclined to march in lockstep to the police state’s dictates.
The government has the know-how.
As The Intercept recently reported, the FBI, CIA, NSA and other government agencies are increasingly investing in and relying on corporate surveillance technologies that can mine constitutionally protected speech on social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram in order to identify potential extremists and predict who might engage in future acts of anti-government behavior.
Now all it needs is the data, which more than 90% of young adults and 65% of American adults are happy to provide.
When the government sees all and knows all and has an abundance of laws to render even the most seemingly upstanding citizen a criminal and lawbreaker, then the old adage that you’ve got nothing to worry about if you’ve got nothing to hide no longer applies.
Apart from the obvious dangers posed by a government that feels justified and empowered to spy on its people and use its ever-expanding arsenal of weapons and technology to monitor and control them, we’re approaching a time in which we will be forced to choose between obeying the dictates of the government—i.e., the law, or whatever a government official deems the law to be—and maintaining our individuality, integrity and independence.
When people talk about privacy, they mistakenly assume it protects only that which is hidden behind a wall or under one’s clothing. The courts have fostered this misunderstanding with their constantly shifting delineation of what constitutes an “expectation of privacy.” And technology has furthered muddied the waters. However, privacy is so much more than what you do or say behind locked doors. It is a way of living one’s life firm in the belief that you are the master of your life, and barring any immediate danger to another person (which is far different from the carefully crafted threats to national security the government uses to justify its actions), it’s no one’s business what you read, what you say, where you go, whom you spend your time with, and how you spend your money.
Unfortunately, privacy as we once knew it is dead.
George Orwell’s 1984—where “you had to live—did live, from habit that became instinct—in the assumption that every sound you made was overheard, and, except in darkness, every movement scrutinized”—has become our reality.
We now find ourselves in the unenviable position of being monitored, managed and controlled by our technology, which answers not to us but to our government and corporate rulers.
Consider that on any given day, the average American going about his daily business will be monitored, surveilled, spied on and tracked in more than 20 different ways, by both government and corporate eyes and ears. A byproduct of this new age in which we live, whether you’re walking through a store, driving your car, checking email, or talking to friends and family on the phone, you can be sure that some government agency, whether the NSA or some other entity, is listening in and tracking your behavior.
As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, this doesn’t even begin to touch on the corporate trackers that monitor your purchases, web browsing, Facebook posts and other activities taking place in the cyber sphere.
For example, police have been using Stingray devices mounted on their cruisers to intercept cell phone calls and text messages without court-issued search warrants.
Doppler radar devices, which can detect human breathing and movement within in a home, are already being employed by the police to deliver arrest warrants and are being challenged in court.
License plate readers, yet another law enforcement spying device made possible through funding by the Department of Homeland Security, can record up to 1800 license plates per minute. Moreover, these surveillance cameras can also photograph those inside a moving car. Reports indicate that the Drug Enforcement Administration has been using the cameras in conjunction with facial recognition software to build a “vehicle surveillance database” of the nation’s cars, drivers and passengers.
Sidewalk and “public space” cameras, sold to gullible communities as a sure-fire means of fighting crime, is yet another DHS program that is blanketing small and large towns alike with government-funded and monitored surveillance cameras. It’s all part of a public-private partnership that gives government officials access to all manner of surveillance cameras, on sidewalks, on buildings, on buses, even those installed on private property.
Couple these surveillance cameras with facial recognition and behavior-sensing technology and you have the makings of “pre-crime” cameras, which scan your mannerisms, compare you to pre-set parameters for “normal” behavior, and alert the police if you trigger any computerized alarms as being “suspicious.”
State and federal law enforcement agencies are pushing to expand their biometric and DNA databases by requiring that anyone accused of a misdemeanor have their DNA collected and catalogued. However, technology is already available that allows the government to collect biometrics such as fingerprints from a distance, without a person’s cooperation or knowledge. One system can actually scan and identify a fingerprint from nearly 20 feet away.
Developers are hard at work on a radar gun that can actually show if you or someone in your car is texting. Another technology being developed, dubbed a “textalyzer” device, would allow police to determine whether someone was driving while distracted. Refusing to submit one’s phone to testing could result in a suspended or revoked driver’s license.
It’s a sure bet that anything the government welcomes (and funds) too enthusiastically is bound to be a Trojan horse full of nasty, invasive surprises. Case in point: police body cameras. Hailed as the easy fix solution to police abuses, these body cameras—made possible by funding from the Department of Justice—will turn police officers into roving surveillance cameras. Of course, if you try to request access to that footage, you’ll find yourself being led a merry and costly chase through miles of red tape, bureaucratic footmen and unhelpful courts.
The “internet of things” refers to the growing number of “smart” appliances and electronic devices now connected to the internet and capable of interacting with each other and being controlled remotely. These range from thermostats and coffee makers to cars and TVs. Of course, there’s a price to pay for such easy control and access. That price amounts to relinquishing ultimate control of and access to your home to the government and its corporate partners. For example, while Samsung’s Smart TVs are capable of “listening” to what you say, thereby allowing users to control the TV using voice commands, it also records everything you say and relays it to a third party, e.g., the government.
Then again, the government doesn’t really need to spy on you using your smart TV when the FBI can remotely activate the microphone on your cellphone and record your conversations. The FBI can also do the same thing to laptop computers without the owner knowing any better.
Drones, which are taking to the skies en masse, are the converging point for all of the weapons and technology already available to law enforcement agencies. In fact, drones that can listen in on your phone calls, see through the walls of your home, scan your biometrics, photograph you and track your movements, and even corral you with sophisticated weaponry.
Technology has upped the stakes dramatically.
All of these technologies add up to a society in which there’s little room for indiscretions, imperfections, or acts of independence—especially not when the government can listen in on your phone calls, monitor your driving habits, track your movements, scrutinize your purchases and peer through the walls of your home.
In such an environment, you’re either a paragon of virtue, or you’re a criminal.
This is the creepy, calculating yet diabolical genius of the American police state: the very technology we hailed as revolutionary and liberating has become our prison, jailer, probation officer, Big Brother and Father Knows Best all rolled into one.
Thus, to be an individual today, to not conform, to have even a shred of privacy, and to live beyond the reach of the government’s roaming eyes and technological spies, one must not only be a rebel but rebel.
As Philip K. Dick, the visionary who gave us Minority Report and Blade Runner, advised:
If, as it seems, we are in the process of becoming a totalitarian society in which the state apparatus is all-powerful, the ethics most important for the survival of the true, free, human individual would be: cheat, lie, evade, fake it, be elsewhere, forge documents, build improved electronic gadgets in your garage that’ll outwit the gadgets used by the authorities.
There is no gray area any longer.

By Anna Von Reitz
Who is Karen Hudes? An attorney for the World Bank who left employment with them in 2007 but continued to represent herself as a World Bank employee. This finally resulted in the World Bank bringing suit against her in their efforts to distance themselves from her and the Global Debt Facility.
Who does she really work for? The Global Debt Facility, sometimes called the World Bank Global Debt Facility. So you see, Ms. Hudes does, in a sense, work for the World Bank and any pretension otherwise on either part is just a question of political liability.
Exactly what is a “global debt facility”?
“A facility that issues debt securities, denominated in both United States dollars and foreign currencies, to investors around the world, using a variety of clearing systems to issue and administrate the securities. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are examples of global debt facilities.”
What does this mean? It means that all the money and credit that Karen Hudes is handing out to people is financed on bonds (as in “bondage” and “bondservant”) that are based on your labor and your public and private assets.
She is spreading your wealth around to keep you enslaved. Isn’t that nice of her?
Functionally, the Global Debt Facility is a “Drop Box” where the guilty banks can off-load stolen assets and continue to use them and invest them in behalf of “unknown” owners.
You are the unknown owners.
You are also the Priority Creditors of the United States of America, Inc., the UNITED STATES, INC., and THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INC.
What is really going on? Two gigantic international banking cartels are staging a “war” with each other for our benefit. One gang of thugs is appearing to push for the continuance of the fiat money system and the other gang of thugs is pushing for a gold-backed system. They are accusing each other of all sorts of things, but they are actually on the same team and working in collusion with each other.
Ms. Hudes is converting bonds into gold, because debt — your debt, supposedly—-is what the Global Debt Facility holds as assets.
This is in line with the original plan the Federal Reserve set up in 1913: consolidate ownership of all gold reserves, devalue the fiat currencies through inflation, and then sell the gold back to the grandchildren of the men you stole it from for 4,000-10,000% profit. This is why FDR confiscated American gold in the 1930’s. This is what happened in Germany in the 1920’s.
This artificially manufactured profit is the prize that the bankers, including Ms. Hudes, are after. That profit can only be achieved by forcing you to pay for it with your labor and your natural resources and that requires forcing you back onto the gold standard.
To the bankers. it doesn’t really matter if the product they are selling is gold or paper. Gold has little practical use, and isn’t actually valuable. They just make it seem valuable by making it scarce and cutting it in rounds and stamping an image on it. Nor, strictly speaking, is it “constitutional”. If you read the Constitution you will see that the States are the only ones limited to paying their debts in gold or silver coin. Back in 1789, the federal (that is, international) bankers were on the gold standard and didn’t want to accept any fiat money from the States. The same thing is happening now for different reasons.
So the ITC/OITC is playing the Good Guy, and Ms. Hudes and the World Bank and the Global Debt Facility are playing the Good Guys also, and we are left in the middle watching them sling lies at each other and at us—- but it is up to us to discern the Truth.
Neither “side” in this drama is operating out of anything but the most venal kind of self-interest and they are in fact nothing but two sides of the same coin. They are acting in collusion for mutual profit at the expense of the people they are supposed to serve, just like the Democrats and the Republicans.
Several months ago, the people of Switzerland got fed up with it, just like the people of Iceland. They told their government to clean up the banks. And now Ms. Hudes is attacking Switzerland. Go figure.
Anna von Reitz informed Karen Hudes of the Priority Creditor standing of the American People back in July of 2014 in an epic Facebook battle that Karen Hudes lost. Anna told Ms. Hudes that the Americans are “coming to breakfast” along with all the other people who are in fact owed trillions and who are in fact NOT responsible for the so-called “National Debt”.
For an understanding for why this is true and why you do NOT owe $18 trillion dollars of trumped up odious debt, get a copy of “You Know Something Is Wrong When…..An American Affidavit of Probable Cause”.
And then tell Ms. Hudes to stop spending your money and stop using it to buy off petty crooks and stop promising immunity to her pals in your names. You are the victims of this scam and she is an attorney acting in behalf of the rats who have defrauded you. Of course, she wants to give her bosses immunity and she wants you to assume their debts and she wants you to buy whole-hog into their gold-backed currency system.
Just remember that they are selling a product like everyone else and it truly does not matter to them if it is made out of gold or toilet paper. Also remember that we are the source of all this wealth and that we are perfectly capable of issuing our own currency —as we are supposed to do under the Constitution— all by ourselves.
When you see someone like Karen Hudes suddenly appearing as the leader of NLA and Oathkeepers and the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association —– ask yourselves this question: why? Could it be that these organizations were funded from the start by the same banks Ms. Hudes works for? Could it be that she bought some people off?
What does Karen Hudes— an attorney and a foreign bank attorney at that— have anything to do with our Grand Juries? Our actual Constitution? Or our Peacekeeping forces?
Ask yourselves— do you really want to be kept down on the farm paying off debts you don’t owe for foreign banks, or do you want them to pay off their own debts?
Do you want your country back and operating as it is supposed to, or are you content to be fed a pack of lies and Free Lunch stories and bribes instead?
Over the past five years Karen Hudes has fed the world a lot of bunko and it is thankfully archived all over YouTube and Google. Our favorite involves a Fairy Godfather named “Wolfgang Struck” who supposedly held a vast amount of gold that had been sitting gathering dust in the basement of the New York Federal Reserve Bank since the 1930’s. Ms. Hudes travelled the world telling people how Wolfgang, this wonderful philanthropist, was going to give them all $100,000 in gold just for the asking.
There was just a small detail omitted. In exchange for the $100,000 in gold, you gave up your claim forever to own your own body, your other public and private assets, and you also gave up any interest in a much larger fortune you are the lawful heir to.
That’s who and what Karen Hudes is.
And now you really need to take the time to find out who Anna von Reitz is and who Bruce Doucette is and who Gary Darby is —and why they are doing what they are doing and under what authority they are acting and most of all— you need to know that they are not arresting “all the Governors” or any other such nonsense as Ms. Hudes has been promoting.
Start researching and acting and thinking for yourselves and don’t trust anyone else to do it for you. Read the sworn public affidavit detailing the history of the crimes that have been committed against you and against your lawful government by the banks Ms. Hudes works for—- “You Know Something Is Wrong When……An American Affidavit of Probable Cause”
And then ask yourself again— how did Karen Hudes suddenly become Dictator in charge of NLA, Oathkeepers, and CSOPA?
See this article and over 100 others on Anna’s website here: www.annavonreitz.com
Unfortunately most of you reading this article will consider it a waste of time, but it is really like someone just gave you a suitcase full of gold coins. You see, if you considered this information valuable, you would read more of Anna’s work and realize how you have been robbed of everything you think you own, including your person, and you would devour every word on her site. There is a way to regain your personhood and your sovereign Nation, if only you would spend some time learning how. Now go back to your favorite TV show!
