The ATF-FBI debacles at Waco, Texas and Ruby Ridge, Idaho, in the 1990s remained isolated incidents because those attacked were fringe elements of society, assaulted in isolated areas. The Branch Davidians were an oddball religious cult, while the Weaver family were isolationist white separatists. The federal government was able to get away with the casualties they inflicted upon these people in these locations because these people were “different.”
That isn’t the dynamic in play in Connecticut.

Connecticut: The Coming Storm
Posted by Mike McDaniel
Friday, June 27th, 2014, 0-dark-thiry: The politicians have made their decision. By a twist of fate–your file simply happened to be on the top of the stack for no particular reason–you’ll be the first example. A state police SWAT team pull to the curb in front of your home, leap from their van and rush to your front door. Two black-clad men pull back a ram and swing it toward your front door, aiming just above the knob, while the rest of the team waits anxiously, their automatic weapons charged and off safe. Two hope they’ll get the opportunity to shoot. At least one wants to manufacture the opportunity.
You’ve made two major mistakes; they will cost your life and destroy your family: you live in a blue state where the governor and legislature have no respect for the Constitution and the lives and liberty of citizens, and you were foolish enough to obey the law.
Starting awake from a sound sleep by the explosion of your door being smashed open and the heavy stomping of booted feet, you stumble down the stairs and into the hallway. As you turn toward the sounds, you’re blinded by multiple bright lights and hear many people screaming at you, but their words are unintelligible. You raise your hands to shield your eyes, but you have your cell phone in your right hand. As soon as it comes into view, you’re overwhelmed by a tidal wave of explosive sounds and feel the first bullets rip into your body. There are stars, so many stars, winking and suddenly, everything goes silent and black and your last conscious thought is a feeling of falling.
The SWAT team, surprised when you suddenly appeared only five feet from them, screamed conflicting commands at you. When you raised your hands and one of them saw something dark in your right hand, he jerked back the trigger of his MP5 submachine gun and didn’t let go until the weapon was empty. Seeing him fire, four more did the same. Of the 137 rounds five of the team initially fired, only 18 actually hit you, but it was enough. The rest shredded your home from floor to ceiling and wall to wall. Six nearby homes were hit, as were four cars. As you lay dying, your heart beating ever more slowly and weakly, you were spared the horror of your wife’s death.
As she descended the stairs, she saw you hit, blood spurting everywhere, falling to the floor, she screamed loud and long and ran down the steps. When she suddenly leapt into the hallway from the staircase, the nearest officer, who had been staring in shock at your bleeding body, and most of all, at the cell phone near your right hand, was startled. One of only two who had not completely emptied his magazine, he emptied it into her. The rest tried, but with one other exception, their guns were empty, and they frantically and impotently jerked their triggers. The other exception managed to fire the remaining six rounds in his weapon. Of the final 13 rounds fired, eleven hit your wife, five in the chest, three in the head. She was dead before her body fell onto yours, the sickening thump of her head on the hardwood floor echoing in the sudden silence and roiling gun smoke.
That was when they heard screaming upstairs, and gathering their courage and slamming fresh magazines into their guns, rushed upstairs, breaking into your 7-year old daughter’s bedroom, to find her lying in a widening pool of blood on her tiny bed. One of the officers tripped over his own feet as he was charging into the house and triggered nearly a full magazine through the ceiling–into her bedroom and through her bed. One of his fellow officers caught three rounds on his bullet resistant vest, but that will be covered up for years. Your daughter will survive. She’ll be in a medically induced coma for two weeks, and when she awakens, she’ll be informed she’s an orphan, a paraplegic orphan with a single lung.
An investigation of the State Police SWAT team by the State Police done within a month of the murders will find the State Police blameless, and will proclaim them heroic paragons of SWAT virtue.
Your sister’s family gladly takes your daughter in, and after two years, years in which the State Attorney General, the Governor, many politicians and the news media depict you, your wife, and even your daughter as murderous domestic terrorists, a jury finally awards your daughter 30 million dollars. She’ll need every penny to support her the remainder of her shortened life. Unfortunately, a judge sympathetic to the state reduces the award to seven million dollars. The AG, Governor and his advisors, angry and vindictive, get authorization from a corrupt and cooperative judge to steal your daughter from your sister’s family and put her in a group foster home run by people who do it for the substantial money the state pays. The state also seizes the 7 million dollars for reimbursement for taking care of your daughter. The Speaker of the State House of Representatives pronounces it a just and fitting end for a family of domestic terrorists and swears to bring justice to all domestic terrorists.
Why were the police there? You tried to obey the law and register an AR-15 you bought. Unfortunately, you missed the deadline by two days, so the state knew you had the rifle and four magazines. What they didn’t know was that you bought the gun as a birthday present for your adult son who lives in Montana. The gun and magazines were in Montana only a week after you bought it. The state police attacked your home because they thought you had an “assault weapon” and “high capacity magazines,” all of which had been in Montana for months. They were scared to death of anyone with an “assault weapon,” so they sent a SWAT team.
Documents eventually made public during the civil suit will reveal that the state police made no attempt to verify that you still owned the weapon. They will reveal that a corrupt and cooperative judge–guess who?–signed hundreds of blank search warrants. They will also reveal that only 31% of local police departments and sheriff’s offices cooperated with the State Police; 69% refused to violate the Constitution. Not that any of that means anything to you. You screwed up and you’re dead. Your daughter will come to wish she had died that night as well.
Far-out fiction? The decision about which I spoke is being made in Connecticut as you read this article. Connecticut’s most recent gun restrictions signed into law by Governor Dan Malloy (D) include the requirement that anyone with magazines of greater than 10 round capacity must register them, and all “assault weapons,” with the state no later than January 1, 2014. Under many circumstances, violation of these laws is a felony.
As Bob Owens at Bearing Arms reports, most Connecticut residents disobeyed their legislative betters:
Only 50,000 firearms and 38,000 magazines were registered. Perhaps another 350,000 firearms belong to those who refused to register their arms. Nearly 2 million magazines are thought to remain unregistered.
These unregistered firearms and magazines are thought to belong to 80,000-100,000 gun owners who view the law as a blatantly unconstitutional infringement upon the very spirit of the Second Amendment, and a prelude to confiscation.
But what about people who did their best to obey the law? Suckers!
Those most obviously in danger of being arrested at this time are 106 rifle owners and and 108 magazine owners who tried to register their arms, too late. The government knows exactly who they are through their botched registrations, and sent them letters giving them options on how to surrender their arms and magazines.
But the police wouldn’t do that! Yes they would, at least enough of them to fire a second shot heard around the world. Let’s briefly examine what the police are sworn to do and how they think.
All police officers swear an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution and to enforce the laws of their jurisdiction. They are members of the executive branch of government, and like the President or the Governors of the several states, are responsible for seeing that the laws are faithfully enforced. There are always two potentially exclusive principals at play in law enforcement: officers are expected to fairly and uniformly enforce the law, yet may lawfully refuse illegal orders and may refuse to enforce unconstitutional laws.
Practically, this rarely becomes an imminent conflict. Officers are given a great deal of discretion, and usually don’t enforce ridiculous, unconstitutional laws. Almost always, no one says a word about it. This is so because thoughtful, professional officers know that they are the pointy end of the spear. They know that the only reason our system works–and they survive–is because most people respect the law and are willing to obey it most of the time. Were that not true, police officers wouldn’t last a day. The police need the respect and willing cooperation of the public, and smart cops understand this.
Legislators, on the other hand, often care about nothing but seizing and maintaining power. Too many come to see themselves not as public servants hired temporarily to do the people’s business, but as the intellectual and moral superiors of the people, divinely chosen–by themselves; they recognize no higher power–to tell the people what to think, what to say, what to own and how to behave. They do not react well to the people thinking for themselves or refusing to obey. They forget–if they ever knew–that no rational legislator passes a law they know will not be obeyed, because when they do, and when people ignore them, a difficult choice is forced upon them. Take it and back down from a law they should never have written in the first place, or attack and show those peasants who’s boss. Punish them for daring to challenge their betters.
And who are the enforcers for the elite legislative class? The police.
Police officers must always consider three factors in their law enforcement decisions:
(1) Maintaining the rule of law. They do this by upholding the Constitution, fairly enforcing the laws that actually have to do with public safety while honoring the rights of all.
(2) Upholding the social contract. Police officers are given their powers by the people to deal with truly dangerous and harmful people and situations. People are willing to respect and obey the police as long as they do not breach the social contract by becoming not even-handed enforcers of laws that actually protect the public and make civilized society possible, but partisan enforcers for a lawless government.
(3) Doing what is reasonably necessary to do their jobs honestly and honorably.
Smart police supervisors and executives also know they should never give an order that will not be obeyed. Even so, will the police violate the Constitution, break the social contract, act dishonestly and dishonorably in doing their jobs? Many will. Refusal might mean the loss of career and pension, discipline, even prosecution. Some buy into the idea that they are the masters of the people, not their servants. Others will go along to get along. Some will honestly, but wrongfully, believe their duty is to follow orders regardless. But enough will do it.
The decision facing Connecticut legislators, the Attorney General and the Governor is stark: do they back down, refuse to actively pursue gun owners made instant felons by their unconstitutional laws, or do they suppress the peasants, perhaps even kill a few to make the point? That would never happen? Consider the Jose Guerena case, and the case of Andrew Lee Scott. Consider this from The Examiner:
A journalist in Connecticut reports that the highly restrictive and punitive gun control laws the state passed last year carry an ominous threat for citizens.
Those who missed the deadline to register their ‘assault weapons’ and high capacity magazines, which have been outlawed, will be treated as criminals although they may have attempted to obey the law but just missed the deadline.
Ed Jacovino of The Journal Inquirer further stated that Michael P, Lawler, a top aide to Gov. Dannel Malloy, contends that the state will punish those who missed the registration deadline whether they intended to or not.
According to Jacovino: ‘And while the state won’t immediately prosecute those who missed the deadline, it isn’t ignoring that information, either. The rifle and magazine declarations will be included in information given to police responding to a certain address. ‘This would be a factor in deciding how to respond to different situations,’ Lawlor says.’
Read that statement closely. Lawlor is saying that if a citizen calls the police to report a crime in progress, officers will be able to see whether or not the person reporting the crime has registered their assault weapons and high capacity magazines, and will approach the emergency call accordingly.
Honest officers trying to do their jobs honorably would carefully consider the three aforementioned factors. They would realize that these laws are clearly unconstitutional and will, sooner rather than later, be ruled so. They would understand that pursuing honest citizens who refuse to obey an unconstitutional law is a gross and unforgivable violation of the social contract, and such violations will cause breaches that will never be healed. Trust lost is never regained. Particularly, arresting–even killing, and some will die–people who actually tried to obey even an unconstitutional law but missed a deadline by a day or two is particularly dishonorable, even evil. To do their jobs honestly and honorably, they would quietly refuse to enforce those laws. Their supervisors and administrators, usually understanding of the three factors, would say nothing and do nothing.
Because the mere possession of magazines and AR-15-like weapons is not a crime if they are registered, police officers have no probable cause to investigate people for mere possession of such things. How can any officer, by merely looking, tell if a magazine holds 10 or 11 rounds? How can they tell if a magazine or a rifle have been registered? To be forced to tear apart magazines and to examine and investigate every rifle they see exceeds an officer’s powers and reduces them to corrupt, thuggish operatives of a police state demanding to see anyone’s papers at whim. Were this lawful, were this truly a significant law enforcement priority, why not simply station State Troopers at every shooting range as a gatekeeper? Of course, actual criminals tend not to frequent shooting ranges, but one has to have priorities.
If in the course of their normal duties they find themselves in a situation where they have genuine–not manufactured–probable cause to investigate further, they might need to enforce those particular laws, particularly if they’re dealing with real criminals rather than honest citizens criminalized by a corrupt legislature, but other than that, professionals would leave it alone. There are far more pressing issues that the public will support and recognize as clearly upholding the social contract.
And this will work–it does every day–if the police are left to their own devices. But as the Examiner noted, that may not be the case. This is an issue about which the police are very much aware, and honest officers worried. Recently, a woman whose husband received a threatening letter called the State Police and spoke with Lt. J. Paul Vance, who is apparently the head of public information for the State Police. Take this link to hear her recording of their conversation.
Lt. J. Paul Vance
While the woman is somewhat naïve regarding these issues, she is asking valid questions, particularly, if ordered to go to the homes of honest citizens and seize their firearms and accessories, will the State Police do it? Will they put themselves and the citizens they serve in deadly danger to enforce unconstitutional laws? Will they put honest citizens in situations where officers will feel compelled to kill them?
As the call goes on, Lt. Vance becomes upset and defensive, very reluctant to admit that the police are even considering such things, saying, among other things:
“I don’t want to talk about the Constitution at all–at all.”
“It sounds like you’re anti-American and anti-law.”
“I’m the master.”
He repeatedly tells her to speak with her attorney and says he would never come to her home, because it’s not his job (of course not; he’s an administrator). She corrects him, noting that lower ranking officers would do it, but he wants to avoid admitting that, and pretends that the police are automatons with no control over which laws to enforce. He also pretends not to understand that police officers coming to the homes of the law abiding to seize their weapons are in any unusual danger, nor will he admit that their actions would put citizens in danger. He knows better; any competent police officer knows better.
Anyone listening to Lt. Vance should come away with the understanding that the State Police certainly will send SWAT teams to the homes of citizens, and will, if they deem it necessary, kill them over the number of rounds their magazines are capable of holding and the appearance of their rifles. They will kill people to please blood-thirsty politicians.
Some local agencies–particularly sheriff’s departments, because sheriffs are elected–will refuse to participate, but many will. Police officers on the coasts are different than those in flyover country. They are generally more anti-gun. The State Police absolutely will, and few, if any, will have any qualms about it. In law enforcement circles, state police officers are known to be rigid and inflexible. Because they generally have no ties to a particular community, many quickly develop an “us-against-them” mentality. Their training and rank structure and daily relationships also tend to condition them to think themselves superior to local officers, and to be much more militaristic than other law enforcement agencies.
Have no doubt. If Connecticut politicians decide to punish the peasants, the State Police SWAT teams will raid the homes of the innocent. People will die. The social contract will be irretrievably broken, and the police–and politicians–will be seen as, and treated as, the enemies of Americans. They will have earned it.
If Connecticut’s legislators have any common sense, any honor, any decency, they will, at the very least, leave this alone and let this ultimately be decided by the courts. If they’re actually smart, they’ll repeal these unconstitutional laws before lives are lost.
Any bets on which path they’ll take?
My fellow American’s, when these events elucidated above take place, it will be a turning point in America’s history unlike anything experienced in the past, and it will escalate from there into total chaos. People on both sides of this issue have drawn a line in the sand, and when a family like the one described is annihilated retribution is sure to come. Picture in your mind this scenario; it’s 2 am and three vans stop in front of the Sherriff’s house, the side doors slide open and three fifty caliber machine guns roar through three thousand rounds of ammo, nearly cutting the house in half, then speed away. The neighborhood is in a panic and the National Guard are called in to assist local law enforcement. Every house for five blocks is invaded the next day, families are terrorized, and the Governor declares a lock down on the city. Prudence would dictate that both sides of this issue would come together to work out a truce, but prudence was murdered that faithful night, and from then on we are once again in a civil war. Do not for one minute, think that we law abiding gun owners will surrender our weapons. It’s only safe to take our weapons when we are laying in the street dead, because we do not value life more than the freedom to protect ourselves and our family’s. Politician's beware, you are starting something that will bite you in the ass.

March 8, 2014
I am not talking about the clown puppets in Washington D.C. and their minions in the Federal Government, but the true Government of the United States, the Invisible Government that appoints presidents, buys senators and congressmen, controls the system of public education, owns most of the mainstream press, the Federal Banks, the IRS and all federal agencies such as the CIA, NSA, FEMA, DHS, TSA and the rest of the alphabet soup organizations created for the sole purpose of spying on, harassing, repressing and terrorizing the American people.
The Invisible Government of the United States is not a government of the people, by the people, for the people, but a government of the banksters, by the oil magnates, for the transnational corporations.
We the People cannot wait any longer. It is time to overthrow the Invisible Government of the U.S.
A New Declaration of Independence
When in the Course of Human Events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the Earth the separate and equal sovereignty to which the Laws of Nature entitles them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
I hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights. Cardinals among these are Life, Liberty, Property and the weapons to defend those rights.
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it by any means necessary, and to institute a new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience has shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evidences a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new safeguards for their future security.
Such has been the patient sufferance of the American people; and such is now the necessity that constrains them to alter their present System of Government. All civil venues of recourse to change the current state of things have been closed to the American people. So, it is time to overthrow the Invisible Government of the United States.
By slow, gradual infiltration, the Invisible Government of the United States has become a veritable imperium in imperio — a government within the government. A government that has never been elected by the votes of the American people. A government that is fully controlled by oil magnates, international bankers and CEOs of transnational corporations ensconced at the Council on Foreign Relations and its parasite organizations in the U.S. and abroad, such as the UN, the Trilateral Commission, the Skull & Bones “fraternity” of Yale University, the Bohemian Grove, the Bilderberg Group, the World Economic Forum, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and others.
Trough their puppets in the U.S. Government, the conspirators of the Invisible Government have been working hard to eliminate the sovereignty of the U.S. and the rest of the countries in this planet and fuse them into a world government under their control. They have opened the southern border to an invasion of illegal aliens and are taking steps to integrate the U.S., Canada and Mexico into a North American Union as a first step to fusing all countries in the hemisphere into an American Union. They encouraged transnational corporations to change well-paid jobs at home into low-paid, quasi-slave jobs abroad. They have destroyed America’s heavy industry. They have systematically poisoned the air we breath, the water we drink and the food we eat. They have turned government schools (also called “public schools”) into centers for brainwashing and political indoctrination. They have been sending our sons and daughters to remote parts of the planet to fight unnecessary wars that only benefit the spurious interests of global bankers and international corporations. They are gradually turning the American Republic into a communo-fascist totalitarian police state.
The history of the present Invisible Government is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Totalitarian Tyranny over the American people — a Totalitarian Tyranny they euphemistically call the New World Order.
But the New World Order is not new and will bring constant chaos rather than order — it is already bringing chaos. It is a return to the servitude of medieval times, where just two social classes existed: the masters living in opulence, comprising the 1% of the population, and the serfs, the 99%, living in the most abject economic and moral misery and with no rights whatsoever.
The Invisible Government has refused to Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good. It is time for the American people to abolish this aberrant creation called the Invisible Government of the United States, try the criminals for their treasonous acts and send to prison the ones found guilty. It is time for the American people to restore the Constitution and elect new leaders who respect and protect it from all enemies, foreign and domestic.
How Can We Overthrow the Illegitimate Invisible Government of the United States?
For more than a century, the CFR conspirators have been waging a psychological war of attrition against the American people. The main type of weapon used in this PsyWar is the meme. Memes are powerful ideas that take control over your mind. While some of them are good, some of them are malignant.
The U.S. military has its bacteriological warfare labs, like the one in Fort Detrick, Maryland, fully devoted to the production of lethal viruses. In the same fashion, the conspirators have their psychological warfare labs, like the Tavistock Institute, the Stanford Research Institute, the RAND Corporation, the Hudson Institute and others, where they create mind viruses in the form of malignant memes.
Therefore, if memes act like viruses, and the two main ways to avoid being contaminated by viruses are immunization and isolation, these prophylactic measures could be applied to memes as well. The best vaccination against malignant memes is to read, watch and listen critically. If you feel yourself agreeing hundred percent with everything a talk radio host, journalist or author says or writes, that is a sure symptom that you have been contaminated by a mind virus.
The other proven and effective way to avoid contagion is isolation. Viruses are usually transmitted by carriers called vectors. The main vectors for the transmission of the malignant memes created in the conspirators’ think tanks are schools —particularly government schools, the ones disingenuously called “public schools—, churches, political parties and the mainstream media.
Like ninja warriors, the main weapon used by the conspirators has been their invisibility. Therefore, in order to win this battle of the mind we need to become shadow warriors ourselves by becoming invisible to our enemies. Given the ability of the conspirators to infiltrate large organizations, the best defensive tactic is to create a multitude of small cells they cannot penetrate.
This type of small cell already exists: it is called your family, and its headquarters is your home. This is the only organization the conspirators cannot infiltrate. They know it, and this explains their efforts to destroy the family as a social unit.
In the case of education, the only sure way to avoid contagion is by not sending your children to government schools. Given the fact, however, that even private schools can be, and actually most of them are, contaminated, the only true solution is home schooling. But even the most drastic measure, no schooling at all, is much better that sending your children to public schools.
In relation to churches, if you discover that your pastor or priest has become an agent for big government disinformation, stop going to church and worship at home. Even better, create a small church at home and invite a few friends and neighbors to join you by attending your religious services.
Finally, you must be aware that the two main political parties have been infiltrated and currently are under the full control of the CFR conspirators. Creating a new party or organization would not help, because eventually the conspirators would manage to infiltrate it the way they infiltrated the Tea Party.
Even the best and well-intentioned candidates running for the Republican or Democratic Party are not good, because, if elected, they will be neutralized by the party’s machinery or co-opted by the conspirators. Moreover, by giving your vote to a Republican or Democratic candidate you are helping to legitimize a corrupt, illegitimate organization. Consequently, the best solution is to create an organization they can’t penetrate. It is called the “no party at all.” Become an independent, and give your vote only to independent candidates. If you cant’ find any candidate that can deserve your vote, run for office yourself.
The best way to fight a mind war is by refusing to let the enemy’s memes get control of your mind. How one can do that? As I have shown above, actually it is very simple and anybody can do it. The only requirement is the will to live as free men.
We are running out of time. We must overthrow the invisible government right away or be prepared to become the obedient serfs of the New World Order.
The ball is now in our court. Either we hit it back and refuse to become the conspirators’ serfs, or lower our heads and accept the yoke, or perhaps our death.
The mad CFR sociopaths in the Invisible Government are finally seeing their most cherished dream coming closer to become a reality: a big war with Russia.Unfortunately, we, not they, are the ones who most likely will pay for their madness.
On the other hand, perhaps we deserve it, for having allowed this nasty bunch of globalist anti-American traitors steal our government and our freedoms. Ultimately, people have the governments they deserve.

On one level, the struggle over the Ukraine is a deadly US/EU/Russian game of territory, involving governments, intelligence agencies, corporations, and banks.
But at a higher level, as usual, sit the elite Globalist players. And their motives are different. They see every conflict as an opportunity to negotiate the aftermath.
And that negotiation produces a codified structure of cooperation between the enemies that is larger than the previous structure.
For example, there were banks and corporations (Standard Oil, ITT, IBM, etc.) who were aiding both sides in WW2. And in the aftermath, a much larger market for goods (Europe-US) was created.
The US government, in its European rebuilding efforts, made sure of that.
Post WW2, Europe itself started on the road toward creating the current European Union, which is a vast bureaucracy that sits over the entire continent.
This is the Globalist principle: instigate conflicts, in order to build larger cooperative structures in the aftermath. And control those cooperative structures.
That way, you put more people, land, resources, and labor under the umbrella.
There is only one exception. If either of the conflicting parties, in the aftermath, refuses to build those cooperative bridges, the Globalist scheme doesn’t work.
So, vis-a-vis the Ukraine conflict, if Russia or the US, in the aftermath, says no to building new cooperative structures (either out in the open, or behind closed doors), that “defector” is now a Globalist target for further chaos and destabilization.
Until it relents and joins the Club.
Above the saber rattling and angry accusations, and characterizations of “a new Cold War,” Ukraine is a pawn in the Globalist game of bringing Russian and US power players into closer accord—kicking and screaming, if necessary.
In accord, but not in a good way. In a Globalist way.
Because the Globalist agenda is a planet of One Nation, where all borders are ultimately erased, and the ruling class of money and corporate power and political torque is enthroned.
This program is neither Left nor Right. It hides behind exacerbated conflict between Left and Right.
It engenders a reality in which Left vs. Right appears to be the only political game in town.
But it isn’t the only game.
You could call the Globalist agenda socialism, Communism, fascism, corporatism, liberal, conservative, and other names. And each one of those names would contain a kernel of truth. But in fact, Globalism is simply Control. From above. Period.
Yes, there must be certain issues on which the Left and Right disagree. There must be differences. And these issues must be hot. Hot enough to rally supporters who scream at each other across the barricades.
Because that is the kind of distraction Globalism needs to do its methodical work in secret.
If Ukraine follows the blueprint, at the end of the conflict, the US and Russia will be seething at each other. And then…a mediating figure will appear, perhaps from the Rockefeller camp.
And in a private meeting, he will say, “Boys, cool down. We have a plan. And in this plan, everybody wins. You’ll all go home with something. Look. Look at this. And this. And this.”
And then the new structure of cooperation will be larger than the previous structure.
And it will look good.
But the motive behind it will be: the taking of yet another step in the direction of welding together Planet Earth in one vast management system.
At the top of which sit the rulers.
As David Rockefeller wrote in his 2003 Memoirs:
“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

As I travel the road of life, I find it very interesting how men who lived so long ago and experienced so much of life were able to see what was coming in the future, not to mention what they saw in their own day. Aristotle could not have hit the nail on the head any closer than this:
“Tolerance and apathy are the last virtues of a dying society.”
I remember looking at a book once that was titled “What Men Have Learned from History.” As I opened the 100-page book, I found that the pages were all blank. The point was well made. Men do not learn from history. Unfortunately, society has proven this to be the case over and over again. In America today you can see the clear digression of society. What was once evil in our eyes some now call good. The high standards of virtue and morality that were once considered to be the foundation of our families are now laughed at and called “old fashioned” and “outdated.”
We now live in a nation where “tolerance” has become some sort of virtue, and “intolerance” for the things that go against God’s Word is called “hate.” The truth is God is love (1 John 4:8), and God gave His Law because He loves. Yet, America has now become so wise in her own eyes that its people have become fools (Romans 1:22).
Those who fought, bled, and died for our country to establish our Constitution, those who sacrificed to make us free were looked upon as heroes. Now, those who stick to the Constitution and fight to make sure it is adhered to are demonized, criticized by the state-run media and labeled “intolerant haters.”
We now live in a country where “evangelical Christians” are labeled by our own military as No. 1 on the list of terrorists; when if it were not for the “evangelical Christians” found in the “Black-Robed Regiment” who fought to give us this country, we would not have a nation to label anyone anything.
Then there are the do-nothings who give way to apathy. They say, “This is America, it will never happen here!” – as they look at the blank pages in the book of history once again and ignore all the signs of the times that clearly point out tyranny in our government, lawlessness and an attack against all that is good.
What has happened, America? Why have we given over to this change from the founding values of our great nation to the lawlessness we see today? The Bible clearly says in Proverbs 24:21, “… meddle not with them that are given to change.” So why are we changing?
America for the most part has cowered shamefully and refused to lawfully fight against evils.
It was Abraham Lincoln who said, “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”
Are we allowing our nation to be destroyed? Yes. Are we seeing judgment turned backwards? Yes. But the real question is, are YOU willing to stand up and do something about it? ________ (Your answer here). That remains to be seen.
It’s time for Americans to rise up, learn from the past, and say enough is enough.
Maybe we all could use a little lesson from those who are labeled “old and confused.”
One evening, a grandson was talking to his grandmother about current events. The grandson asked his grandmother what she thought about the shootings at schools, the computer age, and just things in general.
The Grandma replied, "Well, let me think a minute. I was born before television, penicillin, polio shots, frozen foods, Xerox, contact lenses, Frisbees and the pill. There was no radar, credit cards, laser beams or ballpoint pens.
Man had not invented panty hose, air conditioners, dishwashers or clothes dryers, and the clothes were hung out to dry in the fresh air, and man hadn't yet walked on the moon.
Your grandfather and I got married first – and then lived together. Every family had a father and a mother. Until I was 25, I called every man older than I, 'Sir.' We were before gay rights, computer dating, dual careers, daycare centers, and group therapy. Our lives were governed by the Ten Commandments, good judgment, and common sense. We were taught to know the difference between right and wrong, and to stand up and take responsibility for our actions.
Serving your country was a privilege; living in this country was a bigger privilege. We thought fast food was what people ate during Lent. Having a meaningful relationship meant getting along with your cousins. Draft dodgers were people who closed their front doors when the evening breeze started. Timesharing meant time the family spent together in the evenings and weekends – not purchasing condominiums.
We never heard of FM radios. And I don't ever remember any kid blowing his brains out listening to Tommy Dorsey. If you saw anything with ‘Made in Japan’ on it, it was junk. The term ‘making out’ referred to how you did on your school exam. Pizza Hut, McDonalds, and instant coffee were unheard of.
We had five and 10-cent stores where you could actually buy things for five and 10 cents. Ice cream cones, phone calls, rides on a streetcar, and a Pepsi were all a nickel. And if you didn't want to splurge, you could spend your nickel on enough stamps to mail 1 letter and two postcards. You could buy a new Chevy Coupe for $600, but who could afford one? Too bad, because gas was 11 cents a gallon.
In my day, ‘grass' was mowed, 'coke' was a cold drink, 'pot' was something your mother cooked in, and 'rock music' was your grandmother's lullaby. 'Aids' were helpers in the Principal's office, 'chip' meant a piece of wood, 'hardware' was found in a hardware store, and 'software' wasn't even a word. We were the last generation to actually believe that a lady needed a husband to have a baby. No wonder people call us 'old and confused' and say there is a generation gap.”

As I see it, if Tolerance and Apathy are the last stage, and I do believe it is, that means we are in big trouble; as in the ship’s sinking and we have no life boats. The International Investment Banking Cartel and their hundreds of thousands of elite minions have done a real number on us while we were sleeping. They stole our intellect, our courage, our will to propagate, and most all of the attributes needed to retain our freedom from tyrannical governance. I agree we’re in deep dodo, but, I cannot justify giving up till the last drop of blood is gone. It matters not if I lose all my friends because they are afraid to join the battle, and take offense when I ask them to participate. It matters not when I make grammatical blunders and expose my ignorance and it matters not when the NSA puts me on a watch list. I would be insulted if they did not. What does matter is, I stood up and fought back. It may cost me my life and or all I have accumulated in a lifetime of labor, but I cannot stand by and do nothing while my family and countrymen are being raped, murdered, imprisoned, bankrupted, and tortured. If you can justify not being involved in enraging by educating people, there are still things you could do, like do not participate in banking. But you must not sit back and do nothing. You have over three hundred million people depending on you, to fight for freedom. If you do nothing but pass this article link on to your contact list, you have done more than most so called American’s. If you are a Christian, there is nothing on earth or in Heaven that can steal your soul. To die in the act of fighting for God’s country is a joy unspeakable. Fear not!

Ladies and gentlemen WE HAVE A PROBLEM! Mr. Ewart reports that some so called American’s are complaining that he is too tough, strident and caustic in his articles, to which I say too damned bad. If his complainers had any guts they would wash their own mouth out with soap, and if they had any brains they would apologize to him, and forward his work to everyone they know. America needs a hundred thousand more authors who are even more tough, strident and caustic, to shame those who have no courage or common sense. They should be kissing his ass instead of complaining.
By Ron Ewart
Ladies and gentlemen. We have received some complaints recently that we are being too tough, strident and caustic in our articles. We submit that we aren't being tough enough. The fact is, if we are not stirring your blood, we aren't doing our job. If Americans are so timid and afraid of government that they don't want to hear the truth and from that truth, challenge the government, at any level, then America has absolutely no chance of saving itself ….. from itself. Fear paralyzes and renders the fearful impotent. Fear is the worst enslaver of all. If you fear the government, local, state, or federal, then we strongly suggest you don't read our articles. From our perspective the government, at all levels, has become arrogant, abusive and tyrannical and is fair game, especially to those of us with courage, a free mind and an indomitable spirit.
"The trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool." -Stephen King, author
"Power, without honor or trust, is tyranny." -Ron Ewart, national author and speaker
The other night we watched the Crimson Tide movie again with Gene Hackman as Captain Ramsey and Denzel Washington as Executive Officer (XO) Hunter, commanding a nuclear submarine, the Alabama. The Alabama is sent on a mission to destroy a Russian naval and missile base that had been taken over by Russian rebels who were threatening to fire nuclear missiles at the U. S. if the rebel's demands weren't met by the Russian Government. The Alabama received an order from central command to fire their nuclear missiles at the Russian naval base, but while submerged and preparing to launch, it came under attack by a rogue Russian submarine. During the attack a message came in from central command but was cut off mid message. The Alabama ultimately destroyed the Russian submarine, but in the process of the fierce battle, it lost its radio and thus could not confirm the content of the second message.
The crux of the movie was about the dispute between Captain Ramsey and XO Hunter over the decision to fire nuclear missiles and the potential dire consequences, without knowing what was in the second message. The Captain was determined to fire, but the XO was determined to not fire until the 2nd message was received in full. In the end, the radio was fixed, the message came in and central command had rescinded the order to fire the Alabama's nuclear missiles. The Captain was wrong and the XO was proved right, thankfully.
But this time as we watched the movie, it was different somehow. We were suddenly struck by the parallels between the operation of a nuclear submarine and the operation of a Constitutional Republic. A nuclear submarine has virtually more destructive firepower than all the weapons fired in World War II. With 24 nuclear tipped missiles, each having at least 10 nuclear devices in them, a nuclear submarine can rain Hell fire down on targets that will totally obliterate them, along with tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousand lives. That is just one nuclear submarine. The United States has many nuclear submarines.
The United States of America, under the command of the President, controls the firepower of the combined army, navy, air force, marines and coast guard. No nation on earth has this much power in the hands of one man that can pull the "trigger" to save the nation, or pull the "trigger" on an insane whim. The captain of a nuclear submarine and the President of the United States have the same exact awesome responsibility and it is only different in the degree of how much firepower each can unleash. The captain answers to the President. But the President answers to …..?
In theory, a nuclear submarine operates to preserve Democracy, not to practice it. In contrast, and as designed, a Constitutional Republic operates to preserve a Democracy as well, but with a different set of less-rigid instructions. The nuclear submarine operates under the intransigent and fixed Rules of Navy Regulations and a chain of command from which there can be no deviation without serious consequences for the offender. A Constitutional Republic operates under the Supreme Law of the Land, the U. S. Constitution, and the laws that are passed in concert with the Supreme Law by a representative government. Consequences to any violators of the Supreme Law are left up to the people, that is if the people care to hold the violators to account.
On a nuclear submarine, or any other American Navy vessel, the captain is the supreme leader and the supreme law, subject to the Rules of Navy Regulations. In a nuclear submarine, "boys are trained to do a terrible and unthinkable thing, and if that ever occurs the only reassurance they will have that they are doing the right thing will derive from their unqualified belief in the unified chain of command", (from the movie) as delineated in the Rules of Navy Regulations. Each member of the boat's crew (a submarine is a boat, a surface vessel is a ship) must have an undying belief in the capability of the captain to fulfill the duties for which he is charged, in the hopes that in the performance of those duties he will not needlessly sacrifice the crew, or violate the Rules of Navy Regulations. That strong belief finds its foundation in the words immortalized by General Douglas McArthur ….. duty, honor, country.
Exhaustive training hones the captain and the crew to act as one, within the capabilities of the boat, in the fulfillment of the captain's duties. The human weaknesses associated with power and ambition and the uncontrolled emotions of irrationality, anger, or overt compassion can cloud the captain's ability to fulfill those duties and so the crew is taking that risk when sailing with any captain. Nevertheless, the crew can in no way affect, alter, or modify the captain's decisions, for that would be mutiny. The captain has absolute power on the boat and his words and deeds cannot be questioned, unless he is in violation of the Rules of Navy Regulations, which did occur in the Crimson Tide movie. The fact is, it is impossible to effectively prosecute a war by a committee, governed by Robert's Rules of Order, if the goal is to win the war.
So let's analyze the contrast between a submarine crew and the American citizen. Under the U. S. Constitution, the American citizen has considerably more latitude to alter or modify the government of a Constitutional Republic than a ship's crewmember has on any water-born vessel, where the captain has absolute power. In fact, in a Constitutional Republic, the power of the government is derived from the power of the governed, if we are to believe the inviolate words of those that founded this great nation.
In a Constitutional Republic, Americans are supposed to be taught to have trust in their government to do what is necessary and right under the rules of the Supreme Law of the Land, in the direct interest of the preservation of individual liberty and in the direct interest of the preservation of the sovereignty of the nation as a whole. Americans will only have that reassurance that the government is doing the right thing, if they have the unqualified belief and trust that the government will act to preserve, protect and defend our Constitution. Each American must have an undying belief in the capability of the government to fulfill the duties for which government has been charged, in the hopes that those duties will not needlessly sacrifice any one individual, or group of Americans, or will dismantle the foundation of freedom. That strong belief finds its foundation in the meaning of the word, "trust."
If the people do not trust their government to preserve individual liberty, be honest and forthright with the people and be true to their oath to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, if they cannot trust their government to abide by the rule of law, then the entire system breaks down and we become a nation of the lawless under a lawless government. That condition is a recipe for the declaration of martial law and the path to fascism, or a dictatorship.
When the president of the United States, members of Congress, or any chief executive or members of a legislative, city, county, or state body, willfully lie to the American people to deceive them for political purposes, or ulterior motives, there can be no trust in government, or the rule of law and the system is on its way to breaking down. When law becomes so complex, complicated and undecipherable such that there is no way for the people to reasonably comply with the law, the system HAS broken down. In these trying times of a divided nation over two radically opposing ideologies, America finds itself at the merging of these two conditions. Today, government does lie on purpose for political purposes and ulterior motives to deceive the people, government has become a power unto itself where it does not respect the rule of law, it only respects its rule by fear and intimidation of the people, and finally, the laws have become so complex, complicated and undecipherable that no normal, reasonable and prudent person can comply with them, making virtually every American a lawbreaker in one form or another.
Lying by one person for whatever reason is deceit. Lying by government on purpose for ulterior motives or to increase its power over the masses is racketeering, corruption and quite possibly fascism. As Stephen King stated, "the trust of the innocent is the liar's most useful tool." If the people are so innocent, naive and uninformed, then they have no defense against a lying and corrupt government, nor do they have any redress against unconstitutional or complicated laws for which there is no way to comply.
But the fact is ladies and gentlemen, we cannot with these words change the mindset of a nation who does not care who leads them, or are collectively oblivious to their leader's existence, or the rules under which they lead. We cannot make people cognizant of reality or convince them that their "innocence and ignorance is the liar's (government) most useful tool." We cannot awaken a nation that does not want to be awakened, or a nation that is perfectly comfortable with its ignorance, apathy and mindless slumber.
You cannot by force or other means, convince an alcoholic to mend his ways if the alcoholic does not fervently want to mend his ways. And thus it stands that one person or a thousand voices cannot by force or other means, convince a nation that it lies on the path to ruin, until that nation as a whole gains the collective mindset that it wants to detour from that path. Even if ten thousand voices shouted freedom from the rooftops, as they are now doing all over America in print, on the Internet and on the air, urging the people to see the "light", it still will not be enough if a high percentage of the masses refuse to be awakened. As just one author with a limited audience, we might as well stand on the top of a mountain and blow into the east wind for all the impact we are having.
Whether a sea ship captain, or the president of the United States, the ability to govern effectively rests solely on the trust of the people over which each must command. Without that trust, without honor in the leaders and in the people, government breaks down and when government breaks down due to lack of trust and honor, so order must breakdown as well. This is what we see in Syria, the Ukraine, the Sudan and Venezuela, or any other country where trust in the government has evaporated. When trust and order break down, what takes its place is disorder, mayhem, brutality, carnage, disease and death. This is the not too distant future of America if it continues down the path it now treads.
The question remains, will that nation once conceived in liberty, gain the necessary collective mindset in time before all trust and honor are gone and disorder, mayhem, brutality, carnage, disease and death sets in, because the liars (government) used the people's innocence and ignorance to enslave them.
But then, as a humble writer with a limited audience, there is no way we can predict what the future holds. The outcome depends solely on whether enough Americans will awaken from their innocence, ignorance, apathy and mindless slumber ….. in time. All we can do is provide truthful information and sound the alarm and we are doing so with our weekly articles and on our two powerful websites HERE and HERE. But is anyone listening? If responses to our articles are any indication, it would appear not.

I am writing here of military personnel, and in particular, American military personnel. There is a good reason for this discourse, because it is a proven fact that people kill people for reasons they do not always understand or even care about, and if one is a God fearing person, or just a compassionate person, they should.
The German soldiers who were dressed in Polish uniforms, and instructed to kill their fellow Germans in the second world war, may or may not have, been given instructions to follow those orders because it was imperative to conquer Poland for the protection of the homeland, and to get the peoples support for Nation Building. Who Knows! I don’t pretend to know all there is to know about this event, and I’m using it to open the readers mind to something important in today’s political climate. Events like this do happen, (911 and the Bush administration) (Sandy Hook) (and many others) and I find it hard to swallow if we are going to claim we are compassionate human beings.
There are many so called compassionate Americans who would nuke Russia at the drop of hat, and there are also many so called compassionate Americans who would make a fortune if certain people would drop one on America so we could drop many on China, Russia, or various nations in the Middle East.
Getting rich at the expense of human lives being lost is not compassionate, and if the reader believes our government is always correct in their decisions to kill other people, then I fear for your soul, because it is surely not compassionate, or very smart, and you are close to being one of those soldiers who kill on command.
So what is a low ranking new soldier supposed to do? How about a seasoned soldier of high rank?
Let’s consider that the reason one is a soldier is to protect his country at all cost, which includes his/her life, and orders are orders, which must be followed without question. Then what? Is the chain of command so infallible they never make mistakes? I hardly think so, and we as compassionate human beings must be allowed to follow our conscience if we are to avoid being used by people with no conscience. And we cannot do that and remain ignorant. Don’t forget, our so called President is the Commander in Chief of our military, and the one who gave himself the power to kill us, in spite of having no available information on his past.
AND THAT, DEAR READER IS THE REAL REASON FOR THIS DISCOURSE.
Every human being must accept the responsibility to become informed on the methods being used by the powers that be. Otherwise we will be trapped into committing atrocities we will not be able to live with, like killing people for no good reason. Only self-defense or protection of family, and in some cases property, can justify killing a person.
Even if you just vote a tyrant into a position of power over other people, you are still responsible for their actions, because you could have researched his/her past to see what kind of person they were, (Except for OBUMA) or you could have demanded some kind of acceptable proof of their abilities and purpose.
We cannot go through life without accepting responsibility for our leaders, and if we continue doing so, we are headed for destruction. Look around, and see for yourself, our government has turned into a monster, hell bent on destroying our life with their control over every item we need for survival.
The privatization of all natural resources will subject us to an absolutely miserable life style, with no means of recourse. Is the pleasure of being uninformed worth living in a world of total subjection? Are we so ignorant we will accept tyranny, just so we can avoid a little reading? Do we want to be so desperate we will kill our neighbor for a loaf of bread? Do we give a tyrannical government our support just so we can have an excuse to sit on our ass and watch TV instead of learning how and what they are doing behind our backs; just because they say they represent America? Just by being alive we should have enough sense to see they are stealing our future, as well as our present way of life.
So, what are our options?
There are over 1,600 articles on my two sites alone http://anationbeguiled.com and http://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com , plus the internet is running over with Patriot sites, for now! These articles have been chosen because they contribute to understanding what is going on in America and the world that contributes to the destruction of freedom and Constitutional Governance. And, the number one reason these things are happening is the appalling ignorance and lack of interest in our citizens. Folks, you simply cannot remain uninformed and free. It’s either knowledge and freedom, or ignorance and no freedom!
May I humbly suggest you begin a reading program of as many dissident authors as you can find, and empty your mind of all loyalty to any of the existing political parties in America. You cannot stand in the river and get dry. We must create an informed society on the methods the International Investment Banking Cartel is using to subjugate the entire planet we live and depend on. Stop voting and start learning why. Information is to your mind, like Viagra is to your?
If you want it to work right you have to give it some nourishment.
Every minute you watch television is like an open wound bleeding your life away.
It’s true that ignorant people cannot cure a big problem, and it’s also true that an informed society can cure any problem. The people who formed our government never intended it to be like it has become, and the way it failed is because the people refused to do their part. Your part Mr. and Mrs. America is to learn why adhering to a particular set of principles is the only way we can deal with an ever expanding group of politicians who act as if they can do anything with our country they find profitable. There are rules in every society; otherwise we would be an anarchic pot of hobo soup, willing to try anything that tickles our fancy. A Democracy simply means 51% of the people can demand how the 49% live, and if you are stupid enough to want that, let me be the first to hold and protect your money. Let me be the first to keep your wife warm on cold nights while you are away. The majority is a non elected tyrant!
Laws must be made in conformance with an existing set of principles, or we have no future security in anything. What ever sounds good at the moment is no substitute for intelligent problem solving. Or Nation Building, which by the way, we were not intended to be. The founders saw the advantage in having some diversity in governance and provided it by setting up the States as limited but free to adjust to particular circumstances, and the federal Government confined to only those explicit areas elucidated in the Constitution, and further confined by the Bill of Rights which is about to die on the vine of tyranny.
Getting back to the soldiers, and their commanders demanding absolute obedience regardless of sane treatment of the people. How will we deal with a soldier who has been instructed to kill us for some perceived wrong we may or may not have done. They are not supposed to be law-men anyway. That’s yet another protection we have lost, due to diversity in governance.
There is also the nationwide problem of local police officers becoming absolute brutes and getting away with it, to the point of publically bragging about their freedom to do what ever they liked, with no fear of retribution. As a matter of fact they can now get paid leave for brutalizing some citizen, and they openly confess it’s how they get extra paid time off. Go home with pay and behave for a week until this cools down, is how they are admonished. This is AMERICA???!
Are you aware that the old practice of extortion has arisen, and police officers are demanding money if you want to remain healthy and in business? If the thugs try it they are murdered with impunity, as it’s now the officers domain.
Any one who is still convinced that America is the land of the free and the home of the brave is mentally retarded. Go to http://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com and read Mr. Whiteheads article, Free Speech RIP A Relic of the American Past!
How much will you take America, before you stand up and fight back?

Schooling plays a big role in programming the population, but the most potent and prevalent educational tools are the mass media. These are devised to reach a large audience via the broadcasting of information through natural means (spoken or written language, posters) or technological ones (radio, television, cinema, the Internet). With time, the elite has come to control all the important mass media outlets and are now able to dictate their contents.
The trick is easy. All the elite need to do is repeat the same simplistic lies in all the media and the population will believe them without a doubt. This is how lies acquire an irresistible aura of credibility. A specialist of mass brainwashing, L. Wolfe, explains it further:
“As Tavistock’s researchers showed, it was important that the victims of mass brainwashing not be aware that their environment was being controlled; there should thus be a vast number of sources for information, whose messages could be varied slightly, so as to mask the sense of external control.”
Wolfe specified that the contents had to be entertaining and leave the impression that the person always had the choice between various messages and sources. Therefore, the same repetitive information remains hidden behind different and appealing guises.
Around 1920, the Tavistock Institute became the center for the study of human behavior, mind control, propaganda, and social manipulation. Created in London, it spread overseas with the financial help of the Rockefeller Foundation. Its influence increased when it combined the study of anthropology, economy, organizations, politics, psychology, psychoanalysis, psychiatry, and sociology. For example, Tavistock organized social phenomena such as the hippie counterculture and the use of mind-altering drugs. Its primary objectives were and still remain the organization of cultural changes through the imposition of chaos and the occult manipulation of special groups. With a 2012 budget of around 6 billion USD, it is now made up of 10 institutions, 400 subsidiary companies, and 3,000 study groups. In secret, Tavistock guides powerful multinationals such as the Rand Corp. (media, politics, commerce, health, education, defense), the Mitre Corp. (defense, revenue, national security), the Stanford and Hudson Institutes,
After 90 years of research, Tavistock’s main discovery concerns child sexuality. This has a great influence on the development of personality. Early sex stimulation produces adults whose emotional development is similar to that of a neurotic child. Their second discovery is related to stress. Tavistock researchers found out that people under controlled stress became more infantile and gave up strongly held beliefs under group pressure to conform to popular opinion. That explains why the mass media insist so much on sex, violence, and fear-inducing messages. We are being turned into scared, submissive children who try to evade the stress of daily life through emotional masturbation – television, radio, CDs, DVDs, movies, and video games.
Westerners spend four plus hours a day, the equivalent of two months a year, or nine years in a lifetime, being hypnotized by a television screen without being conscious of the effects this activity has on them. They have nearly stopped interacting with friends, neighbors, community, and even family. Their free time is spent in imaginary relationships with fictitious characters on the screen.
A few US statistics will show us the extent of the phenomenon: 99 % of households own at least one TV; there are 2.24 TVs per family; the television remains open 7 hours a day; 66 % eat in front of their television sets. The addiction starts right after birth, since 30% of kids who are 0 to 1 year old and 47 % of the 5 to 8 year-olds have televisions in their rooms. A typical US child spends 3.5 minutes per week in meaningful conversation with a parent, but 1680 minutes per week in front of TV. Is this why television is called the “one-eyed babysitter”? By the time they are 65, most people have seen 2,000,000 TV ads. This phenomenon is becoming global.
The entire population of earth has become addicted to television. If one decides to quit the TV habit, they experience psychological withdrawal symptoms that can be as severe as those related to drug or alcohol abuse. There is a direct relationship between child obesity – which is severe for 11% of 6 to 17 year olds in US – and advertisements, since the most popular types of commercials are related to junk food. A study counted more than 200 junk food ads during four hours of cartoons on Saturday morning television in the US. When compared with radio listening, television is more impactful because there are pictures. The more there are to accompany a special news report, the more tangible it will seem and the lesser the chance of people questioning its accuracy. Media expert Hal Becker once said:
“I know the secret of making the average American believe anything I want him to. Just let me control television… You put something on the television and it becomes reality. If the world outside the TV set contradicts the images, people start trying to change the world to make it like the TV set images.”
How is it that the elite have been so successful in achieving full control of television programming? Through the assistance of government. Politicians vote and impose laws that favor large TV stations over smaller ones and make it difficult for independent ideas to reach the airwaves. Better yet, most countries have their own sanitized State television stations.
Mass Hypnosis and Mass Violence
Tavistock hastened to study the effects of television on human behavior as early as the 1940′s. Its researchers discovered that 30 seconds after one starts watching TV, the brain automatically begins to produce alpha waves, a modified state of consciousness. The viewer goes into a trance-like mode, a type of light hypnosis. All their attention becomes concentrated on the screen, while the rest of their environment is ignored. In this semi-conscious state, they become highly susceptible to the messages contained in the programs, especially the commercials, which are created especially for that purpose.
Television started becoming popular in the fifties, and the elite have now accumulated more than 60 years of experience spread over three generations of viewers. The results are staggering. People are no longer logical, as their opinions and ideas come directly from television. The images validate what they hear. This filter of tele-opinions gets automatically superimposed over their daily reality, and have become passive members of a plugged-in society, and can no longer think, talk, or write logically. For them, images and knowledge are synonymous.
In Europe, violence on television is as critical as in America. Specialized stations such as Baby TV and Baby First broadcast programs for babies 24/7. When toddlers are one year old, they are already watching at least one hour of television a day. Statistics from 1988 showed that during one week of TV watching, viewers witness 670 murders, 15 rapes, 848 fights, 419 shootings or explosions, 11 armed robberies, 8 suicides, 32 hostage takings, 27 torture scenes, 9 defenestration’s, 13 strangulations, and 11 war scenes. Nowadays, these types of events are not reserved to late hours. For example, Quebec’s popular TQS station presented the movie Terminator at 6:30 pm – just in time for kids.
And it’s Getting Worse!
Ever heard of Silent Sound Spread Spectrum or SSSS? It is a secret Pentagon psychotronic technology that has been operational since 1990. In 1991, it was used during the first Gulf War to manipulate Iraqi troops into surrendering en masse. Like compliant children, 200,000 men came out of their desert bunkers and fell to their knees before approaching US troops.
The SSSS is now available in your neighborhood – free of charge. It is carried to your brain with the use of several technologies, including chemtrails, cell towers and high definition digital television (HD-TV). In this way, the elite is aiming for total mind control to insure the compliance of its sheeple. Now you know why the government was so enthusiastic about letting us get digital converter boxes for a cheap price, because they want us to have access to high-quality television images.
Big Brother goes even further with digital streaming video that allows any person with a personal computer linked to the Internet to access and watch popular television programs. This is available for free through companies such as Hulu. In this way, computer monitors and HD-TV screens broadcast SSSS and combine it with subliminally-pulsed images to bring about specific emotions and physical responses to all listeners or a selected type of DNA (Blacks, Orientals, women, etc.). If the elite has a sample of a person’s DNA, it can even target selected individuals. Experimentation has shown that it is effective – with varying levels of efficiency – with about 85% of the population, while the remaining 15% seem to be immune to such mind control attempts.
What Should We Do?
What should we do now that we know? Well, truth is useless if we do not change our actions.
Number one: throw out the television. Even without this new mind-control technology, the television has always been a “box of lies.” Watching TV lowers one’s intelligence, and many statistics are there to prove it. Forget the “good educational shows” that are simply there to misinform you.
Number two: limit the time you spend in front of the computer and on the internet, and never watch TV shows from the Internet.
Number three: avoid other sources of do not use cell phones (whether ‘smart’ or not). Basically, it is like putting your head in the microwave oven and pushing the ‘ON’ button. It is difficult to avoid chem.-trails, but living a TV-free and cell-phone-free life is possible – you get so much more time to read, think (for yourself), meditate, exercise, cook, and keep good company.
The elite have hijacked our brains with their technology, but we still have our free will. We can choose to use it or not to use it. Which one will you choose?

In my life time, I have noticed that some people are more inclined to be led/instructed than others, and I have concluded that they were born followers and had very little independence or individuality. They were easy believers, naïve, and complacent by nature, which made them an easy convert to the mass mind. I feel toward them as I would a person born deformed, with pity and sympathy, for their journey has few rewards and much hardship.

To anyone who had a passing knowledge of the nature of color revolutions and destabilization efforts in years past, the recent protests in Ukraine were an obvious example of foreign meddling in the domestic affairs of yet another Eastern European nation.
From the initial spates of violence coming largely from the direction of the protesters to the pro-EU and pro-IMF demands, it was clear from the very beginning that the Ukrainian people were being callously pulled back and forth between two world powers indifferent to any interests but their own.
These powers, the United States and Russia, have been covertly jockeying for more and more control over Ukraine, a strategic location for both countries, for the last several years. Yet, as the United States’ power and influence begins to wane and Russia’s begins to increase on the world stage, the risk of both powers clashing over Ukraine in a direct fashion becomes a bigger possibility by the day.
While tensions between the United States and Russia have escalated over the last three years through the Syrian crisis, Ukraine is more than a simple sphere-of-influence region for Russia. It is a sphere-of-influence region that borders the homeland. For this reason alone, the level of importance attributed to Ukraine by Russia is obviously higher than that of Syria in the long run.
Interestingly enough, it is for this same reason that the United States considers Ukraine such a vital sphere-of-influence nation as well. That is, the fact that Ukraine lies on the doorstep of Russia.
Although the reasons for considering Ukraine an extremely important part of the world by both the United States and Russia cannot simply be boiled down to that of a border issue, the fact remains that the potential for a direct collision between two world nuclear powers is a possibility if the meddling continues.
In the meantime, as the Ukrainian people are being used as battering rams for the will of world elites, they are quite clearly the guaranteed loser no matter what decision is made. With the recent success of the Western-backed color revolution, what is also clear is that the only winner in Ukraine is austerity, Fascism, the IMF, and, of course, the world elites. International bankers, as usual, are salivating over the coming feast that will come at the expense of the living standards of the Ukrainian people and the coffers of the Ukrainian government.
Even before a ruling government can be formed by the leading color revolutionary leaders Yatsenyuk, Klitschko, and other relevant agents of destabilization, the acting President, Oleksander Turchinov, is stating that European integration is a high priority of the new government. This, of course, means that Ukraine will soon move forward in becoming a full-fledged member in good standing of the new European Soviet known as the European Union.
In addition, leading contender for the post of Prime Minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, and the Parliamentary leader of the Fatherland Party, is now calling on the rest of Parliament to immediately come to agreement on a new government so that Ukraine can now crawl to the International Monetary Fund for “emergency economic assistance.” As one may expect, the IMF has already declared that it will require harsh austerity measures and other “economic changes” in exchange for any aid to Ukraine.
The $15 billion bailout package provided by Russia to Ukraine in December has now been suspended, placing Ukraine in imminent danger of default. The Hryvna, the Ukrainian currency, has been sharply devalued and the country’s bond rating has been downgraded in such a dramatic fashion that Ukraine is no longer able to borrow on international markets. Foreign reserves have also dropped dramatically.
If conditions persist, Ukraine will soon no longer be able to pay public pensions and salaries.
Yet austerity is not the only result of the recent Ukrainian “revolution.” Subtle and even outright Fascism has come to dominate not only the demonstrations themselves but the relatively young “transitional” phase now taking place.
Indeed, this relatively new trend of Fascist rule was enunciated in a recent statement by Natalia Vitrenko of the Progressive Socialist Party of Ukraine, a party that asserts its opposition to both the Orange Revolution installment of Yuschenko as well as the polices of Yanukovych.
Vitrenko first began by describing the nature of the movement used to oust Yanukovych by pointing out that many of the most powerful elements of the anti-Yanukovych movement, or Euromaidan, were indeed fascists and neo-Nazi’s. She stated,
Washington and Brussels should hear our warnings. We hold them responsible for all they have done to transfer power to the political forces responsible for establishing this totalitarian Nazi regime in Ukraine, with the inevitable gross violation of the rights and freedoms of millions of our fellow citizens.
The U.S. and EU should know that this power grab by political parties and movements including neo-Nazi forces (such as “Svoboda – Freedom” and “Right Sector”) , announced the implementation of a national revolution under the slogans “Ukraine for Ukrainians,” "Glory to the nation – death to enemies," "Muscovite tools and Communists to the gallows!" and others.
Starting on February 22, this new government must assume all responsibility throughout Ukraine for the violation of the rights and freedoms of citizens.
Vitrenko then went on to discuss the events currently unfolding in Ukraine including the capture of government buildings as well as political intimidation, force, beatings, shootings, and even lynchings of those seen as pro-government or opposed to the positions of the Western-backed fascists. Vitrenko states,
Insurgents and terrorists continue to capture Euromaidan administrative buildings and local authorities in the South and East of Ukraine. Using terrorist methods, voters have been deprived of their rights and of the authority of their elected representatives in local councils. Civilians defending their choices have been mercilessly shot by gunmen armed with Kalashinkovs, rifles, and other combat weapons, as for example on February 22 in Lugansk.
Militants not endowed with any legitimate police authority have arrogated emergency police powers to themselves, using axes and sticks to block central thoroughfares, halting cars to carry out inspections and verification of documents of passengers, and arresting people. They have blocked the entrance to the airport and thus grossly violated the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, which guarantees the inviolability of the person, freedom of movement, the presumption of innocence, and the right to security and life. All the people of Ukraine have been humiliated and denied their dignity and rights.
Already on February 23 representatives of the new government announced the formation of the Ukrainian nation: they proclaim that anyone who uses the Russian language will be subjected to deprivation of their native-born status of Ukrainian ethnicity and will be discriminated against in civil and political rights.
The new regime has already announced their intention to ban the broadcast channels of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine, branding them as the TV channels of a hostile state . This is the way the new government defends the European values of freedom of speech and freedom of the press.
The regime is preparing lists of enemies who are subject to proscription. This mechanism will deprive of civil and political rights all those who do not share the neo-Nazi views of the new Ukrainian authorities.
Across the country, ghoulish lynchings continue. People are being beaten and stoned, while undesirable members of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine are subject to mass intimidation and local officials see their families and children targeted by death threats if they do not support the installation of this new political power. The new Ukrainian authorities are massively burning the offices of political parties they do not like, and have publicly announced the threat of criminal prosecution and prohibition of political parties and public organizations that do not share the ideology and goals of the new regime.
In addition, Vitrenko adds that “Euromaidan militants are seizing Orthodox shrines like the Kiev-Pechersk Lavra, seeking to transfer them to dissenting churchmen like Filaret. The intention is to grab all the churches of the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the Moscow Patriarchate to conform them to the Vatican.”
In other words, those few participants who at first joined the movement to fight against government corruption and for whatever they perceived to be a better political structure or simply those that were paid to fight in the streets, have been pushed out of the movement after the seizure of power was accomplished. In their place are the more militant wings of the movement such as the political parties mentioned above and the brutal thugs sanctioned by Western governments.
In the end, with the full support of the West, particularly the U.S. State Department, the recent successful “regime change” effort in Ukraine still has the potential to turn into an explosive situation in the literal sense. Aside from the moral qualms of allowing foreign powers the ability to dictate to smaller states the political direction which they must take, provoking a confrontation between two major world powers – both with nuclear capability – is a recipe for disaster!
From Syria to Ukraine, a new geopolitical race has been initiated with a clear destination firmly in the minds of the world political elites currently directing both sides of the contest. That direction, while potentially beneficial for those in positions of power, spells nothing but destruction for the rest of us.

As anyone with an instinct for danger can see, America is not the only country being manipulated by more powerful people than those who are running the different governments. In fact, the Powers That Be, are global in their actions and power bases, and the prospective government leaders are just pawns in the game of who runs the world, and where it is headed. This operand is sufficient enough to confuse the people and keep the PTB well insulated from direct attack by the militant media, sometimes called the internet reformation, and the only source of truth for the people. The sophistication of the organization that controls the world’s monetary systems and election of government leaders is such that few in this world understand who and what is happening to destroy the traditional stability of their countries. Multiply this with different methods of global mind control that results in the apathy, complacency, and narcissism of the people, and you have a near total lack of interest in regaining control of their governments. The people have been so completely dominated they have given in to accepting tyranny. If by chance the information on this web site awakens someone’s instinct for self preservation, they are still faced with untold hours of study before understanding how powerful the International Investment Banking Cartel really is., and what their objective means to the future of humanity. I have concluded that even if the Banking Cartel was assassinated they surely have protected their assets and directed them into the hands of intelligent people who will restructure what has been lost by their death. Only GOD has the power and ability to save us from destruction and slavery, and He will not protect a world that denies He exists.
EARTH, WE HAVE A PROBLEM!

on February 26, 2014
Credit is a wonderful tool that can help advance the division of labor, thereby increasing productivity and prosperity. The granting of credit enables savers to spread their income over time, as they prefer. By taking out loans, investors can implement productive spending plans that they would be unable to afford using their own resources.
The economically beneficial effects of credit can only come about, however, if the underlying credit and monetary system is solidly based on free-market principles. And here is a major problem for today’s economies: the prevailing credit and monetary regime is irreconcilable with the free market system.
At present, all major currencies in the world — be it the US dollar, the euro, the Japanese yen, or the Chinese renminbi — represent government sponsored unbacked paper, or, “fiat” monies. These monies have three characteristic features. First, central banks have a monopoly on money production. Second, money is created by bank lending — or “out of thin air” — without loans being backed by real savings. And third, money that is dematerialized, can be expanded in any quantity politically desired.
A fiat money regime suffers from a number of far-reaching economic and ethical flaws. It is inflationary, it inevitably causes waves of speculation, provokes bad investments and “boom-and-bust” cycles, and generally encourages an excessive built up of debt. And fiat money unjustifiably favors the few at the expense of the many: the early receivers of the new money benefit at the expense of those receiving the new money at a later point in time (“Cantillon Effect”).
One issue deserves particular attention: the burden of debt that accumulates over time in a fiat money regime will become unsustainable. The primary reason for this is that the act of creating credit and money out of thin air, accompanied by artificially suppressed interest rates, encourages poor investments: malinvestments that do not have the earning power to service the resulting rise in debt in full.
Governments are especially guilty of accumulating an excessive debt burden, greatly helped by central banks providing an inexhaustible supply of credit at artificially low costs. Politicians finance election promises with credit, and voters acquiesce because they expect to benefit from government’s “horn of plenty.” The ruling class and the class of the ruled are quite hopeful that they can defer repayment to future generations to sort out.
However, there comes a point in time when private investors are no longer willing to refinance maturing debt, let alone finance a further rise in indebtedness of banks, corporations, and governments. In such a situation, the paper money boom is doomed to collapse: rising concern about credit defaults is a deadly enemy to the fiat money regime. And once the flow of credit dries up, the boom turns into bust. This is exactly what was about to happen in many fiat currency areas around the world in 2008.
A fiat money bust can easily develop into a full-scale depression, meaning failing banks, corporations filing for bankruptcy, and even some governments going belly up. The economy contracts sharply, causing mass unemployment. Such a development will predictably be interpreted as an ordeal — rather than an economic adjustment made inevitable by the ravages of the preceding fiat money boom.
Everyone — those of the ruling class and those of the class of the ruled — will predictably want to escape disaster. Threatened with extreme economic hardship and political desperation, their eyes will turn to the central bank which, alas, can print all the money that is politically desired to keep overstretched borrowers liquid, first and foremost banks and governments.
Running the electronic printing press will be perceived as the policy of the least evil — a reaction that could be observed many times throughout the troubled history of unbacked paper money. Since the end of 2008, many central banks have successfully kept their commercial banks afloat by providing them with new credit at virtually zero interest rates.
This policy is actually meant to make banks churn out even more credit and fiat money. More credit and money, provided at record low interest rates, is seen as a remedy of the problems caused by an expansion of credit and money, provided at low interest rates, in the first place. This is hardly a confidence-inspiring route to take.
It was Ludwig von Mises who understood that a fiat money boom will, and actually must, ultimately end in a collapse of the economic system. The only open question would be whether such an outcome will be preceded by a debasement of the currency or not:
The boom cannot continue indefinitely. There are two alternatives. Either the banks continue the credit expansion without restriction and thus cause constantly mounting price increases and an ever-growing orgy of speculation, which, as in all other cases of unlimited inflation, ends in a “crack-up boom” and in a collapse of the money and credit system. Or the banks stop before this point is reached, voluntarily renounce further credit expansion and thus bring about the crisis. The depression follows in both instances.
A monetary policy dedicated to averting credit defaults by all means would speak for a fairly tough scenario going forward: depression preceded by inflation. This is a scenario quite similar to what happened, for instance, in the fiat money inflation in eighteenth-century France.
According to Andrew Dickson White, France issued paper money
seeking a remedy for a comparatively small evil in an evil infinitely more dangerous. To cure a disease temporary in its character, a corrosive poison was administered, which ate out the vitals of French prosperity.
It progressed according to a law in social physics which we may call the "law of accelerating issue and depreciation." It was comparatively easy to refrain from the first issue; it was exceedingly difficult to refrain from the second; to refrain from the third and with those following was practically impossible.
It brought … commerce and manufactures, the mercantile interest, the agricultural interest, to ruin. It brought on these the same destruction which would come to a Hollander opening the dykes of the sea to irrigate his garden in a dry summer.
It ended in the complete financial, moral and political prostration of France — a prostration from which only a Napoleon could raise it.

At one point in my life I had enough creditability with the younger men working around me, which resulted in many asking me how a working man could have a nice home like mine, two almost new vehicles, and no debt at 35. This is of course not an accomplishment to brag about, but to these young men it seemed like I must have done something illegal to accomplish. I told them that I had always kept my debt repayment no higher than fifty percent of my cash flow, which gave me room to maneuver my assets and provide for savings. I could have started out buried in debt as they did but it just never made sense to me to be bent over a barrel for half my life. As my business grew, I never borrowed money to operate on, and only borrowed for capital expansion (equipment that was needed to increase cash flow) I shopped around for the lowest interest and lowest prices and never purchased the best of everything. Most products needed to run a business can be located at better prices than what the biggest suppliers sell. I could go on and on about this subject, but few people will take advice that will cause them to wait until they can buy what they want without borrowing the money to buy it. Therein lies the snake that poisons they’re life. They invent excuses why they can’t. Young man/woman take this to the bank, adjust your finances so you can put 25% of your net pay in savings every week, and only use it for medical emergencies. Put you’re saving’s in something that increases in value, or earns as much interest as you would have to pay to borrow it, and don’t think you cannot buy a house without a mortgage because I did it, and it can still be done.

Stockman – $500 Trillion Derivative Bomb Threatens The World!
Today David Stockman warned King World News that a terrifying $500 trillion derivative bomb threatens the entire world. He also went on to caution about a second danger facing the world. KWN takes Stockman’s warnings very seriously because he is the man former President Reagan called on in 1981, during that crisis, to become Director of the Office of Management and Budget and help save the United States from collapse. Below is what Stockman had to say in part II of a series of powerful interviews that will be released today.
Stockman: “I think the great ticking time bomb is interest rate swaps. The last time I checked they were in the range of $500 trillion. Who knows what’s lurking underneath the surface there?….
Stockman: “The single greatest danger is that the game the central banks are playing today will come to an abrupt and destructive end. That’s the danger because the whole system is now running off the short-run maneuvers, liquidity, and guidance that the central banks are injecting into the market every day. The danger is that one of these days the whole system will fail because it is unnatural and artificial, and when that happens it’s going to be a pretty difficult (and chaotic) time.” read more!
Just think a moment, the International Investment Bankers have been sucking our country dry for more years than anyone on earth has lived. Does that make sense folks? when will the people understand they simply cannot have a life of total leisure, we must spend time learning what is going on in our government and discuss what to do about it. By now, the entire world could have financial security if it were not for these blood suckers. Please for the sake of your children and Grand children get off your ass and learn. If I can find and learn what is wrong with the world, there is no excuse for anyone to remain ignorant. There is a way to fix the world. KILL THE BANKERS, and confiscate their wealth! Does that offend you? You don’t seem to get upset when the bankers have millions killed in their wars, while you work in their war factories though, do you? Wake the hell up America!
