Teaching critical thinking is the university’s democratic mission, argues the University of Ottawa’s Joel Westheimer, and today’s universities are failing to deliver. Universities need to reverse the trend that has them focusing on workforce preparation and the commercialization of knowledge and resurrect higher education’s public purpose.

Ten years ago, I was fired, which is not in and of itself interesting. After all, many people lose their jobs every day, especially in times of economic turbulence. For better or worse, however, most endure such indignity in privacy. The New York Times, under the headline “New York University Denied Tenure to Union Backer,” reported that the U.S. government’s National Labor Relations Board “charge[d] New York University with illegally denying tenure to a professor who had testified in favor of allowing graduate students to unionize.” The Chronicle of Higher Educationheadline read “A Promising Professor Backs a Union Drive and Is Rejected for Tenure.” Smaller papers and magazines made similar observations. I was more concerned at the time with wanting my job back than with thinking about the broader implications (the cacophony of negative publicity heaped on NYU offered a sense of just deserts to be sure). But thrust into the public position as I was did raise one particular concern for my scholarly interests in democratic education. Nearly every news story cast my lot as an isolated incident of vengeful retribution by a few university administrators rather than as a case of something much larger than one professor (me) or one university (NYU).

For the past 10 years I have been happily employed by the University of Ottawa and I am pleased to report that my children have not gone hungry. But whether others view my earlier dismissal as scandalous or justified, I find the following irrefutable: the forces that set the process in motion and enabled it to continue are an inevitable byproduct of dramatic changes the academy has been facing in the past several decades. These changes have little to do with  individual university employees and much to do with changes in the structures and workings of the academy itself – not only NYU, but also private and public universities across the United States and Canada. Universities now model themselves after corporations seeking to maximize profit, growth, and marketability. As a result, the democratic mission of the university as a public good has all but vanished. And many of the (never fully realized) ideals of academic life – academic freedom (in my case, freedom of political expression), intellectual independence, collective projects, and pursuit of the common good – have been circumscribed or taken off the table altogether on a growing number of college and university campuses across North America.

The effects of corporatization on the integrity of university research – especially in the sciences – has been well-documented elsewhere. Readers of Academic Matters are likely  familiar with the many cases of scientific compromise resulting from private commercial sponsorship of research by pharmaceutical and tobacco companies. Indeed, faculty throughout North America are already deluged with requests or demands to produce research that is “patentable” or “commercially viable.” Sometimes these entreaties are couched in gentler (some might argue more insidious) terms such as “knowledge mobilization” or “knowledge use.” What I want to focus on here, however, are implications that are less well explored but equally dangerous: the ways the academy’s shift towards a business model of education delivery impedes our collective ability to preserve and promote a democratic way of life. As in so many other arenas in our society today where democratic interests are pitted against economic ones, democracy seems to be losing.

Three developments stemming from the pursuit of a corporate model of education pose  threats not only to the historic ideal of a liberal democratic education but also to the future of democratic thinking itself. They are the elimination of critical thinking and a culture of criticism; the weakening of intellectual independence and democratic faculty governance; and the promotion of a meritocracy myth that drives the work of graduate students, junior and senior faculty alike. The first two erode democratic thinking by curbing the habits of mind and heart that enable democracy to flourish – what John Dewey called the “associated experience[s]” essential to democratic life. The last – the meritocracy myth – attacks the heart of these associated experiences by diminishing the power of the community to nurture collective meaning and worth.

The impact of the corporate campus on critical thinking

Within the unique university context, the most crucial of all human rights…are meaningless unless they entail the right to raise deeply disturbing questions and provocative challenges to the cherished beliefs of society at large and of the university itself…It is this human right to radical, critical teaching and research with which the University has a duty above all to be concerned; for there is no one else, no other institution and no other office, in our modern liberal democracy, which is the custodian of this most precious and vulnerable right of the liberated human spirit.

This excerpt from the mission statement of the University of Toronto might be hailed as a shining example of the centrality of university campuses in promoting and preserving critical thinking as the engine of progress in any democratic society. Except for one thing: institutional leaders at the university whose faculty drafted these words do not believe them and do not abide by them. The University of Toronto is the site of two of the most notoriously blatant violations of these principles in the past decade: the well-publicized cases of Nancy Olivieri and David Healy, involving the university’s unwillingness to stand up to corporate funders and protect academic freedom and the integrity of critical inquiry.

Unfortunately, the Olivieri and Healy cases do not stand alone. Scores of examples of scientific and social scientific research essential to public welfare are undermined by private influence. In fact, more than 52 per cent of funding for clinical medical research is now from corporate sources. The trend is easiest to spot and most publicly alarming in the medical sciences, since lives are at stake. But there is cause for concern as well in the humanities and social sciences, where publication of inconvenient truths can be discouraged by university higher-ups.

The harm to the reputation of the university as a reliable source of (especially “scientific”) information untainted by private conflicts of interest has been documented extensively. But the ways these changes affect the campus life of faculty and students has been considered far less. As universities turn to business models– becoming certification factories rather then institutions of higher learning – democratic educational ideals are fast becoming  obsolete. Consequently, professors find it more difficult in their teaching to foster critical thinking as a necessary underpinning of democratic participation. The “shopping mall” university where students seek the cheapest and fastest means for obtaining the basic skills and certification they need is becoming a familiar metaphor and model for university administrators, students, and parents. Courses not directly related to job-training look more and more like useless dust to be eliminated. Meetings among faculty about which program of courses might yield the most robust understanding of a field of study and of the debates and struggles that field entails are rapidly being replaced by brainstorming sessions about how to narrow the curriculum to fit into, for example, two weekends in order to incentivize matriculation and increase student enrollment.

The weakening of intellectual independence and democratic faculty governance

The state of affairs I describe above pertains mostly to the emaciated pedagogical potential of the newly corporatized university. But ultimately, what faculty—and especially junior faculty—are being asked to give up is their own intellectual independence. The creeping corporate climate of some university departments and schools can easily lead to the substitution of bureaucratic allegiance, in the form of “budget alignment” or “optimization” in the new parlance, for scholarly inquiry as the cornerstone of academic life. In some cases, the effect on the intellectual life of a department might be plain to see. In some schools and faculties, elected department chairs—who traditionally served terms of a few years and then eagerly returned to their intellectual pursuits within the department—have been replaced by chairs appointed by university higher-ups with no or at best perfunctory input from department faculty. Some stay in these positions for a decade or more with ever-diminishing interest in or focus on scholarly inquiry. In the Social Text article, “Tenure Denied,” (where I described more fully my experiences at NYU), I told of a colleague at a mid-western university whose department chair suggested to the faculty that research questions that the department wanted investigated should be agreed on by a committee (of senior faculty and administrators) and posted on a Web site—and that faculty should align their research with one of those questions. Requiring research to be streamlined according to central criteria (doubtless related to funding opportunities) makes perfect sense if one treats an academic department as a profit center. But it turns scholarly life into something less than we all hope it to be.

At times, the mere fact that departmental faculty are pursuing an active, diverse and uncontrolled set of research agendas may be perceived negatively by school administrators. While such departments continue to recruit promising scholars on the basis of their research production, the departmental leadership is caught in a bind. They need such scholars for the department’s reputation and grant-getting ability, but once there, these scholars may pose some threat to the order of business within the department (and to the security of the chair who has likely already traded the kind of professional security earned from scholarly inquiry and production for the kind won by allegiance and loyalty to university higher-ups).

Appointed chairs can slowly and steadily shift faculty focus from scholarly pursuits that advance a field to those that advance the chair, a possibility especially troubling to junior faculty seeking tenure. Much as external pressures on the corporate university constrain and refocus academic research, so too do internal incentives on the departmental level. As in much of university politics, junior faculty are the most vulnerable. Faculty governance in departments that have remade themselves along corporate culture lines can become little more than a parody of pseudo-democratic (or simply non-democratic) governance, in which faculty simply (and always) endorse administrative positions. Faculty managers’ and department chairs’ only convictions are those that do not ruffle administrative feathers of those higher up. And the chill that blankets departments in which power has been centralized results in the further entrenchment of anti-democratic tendencies.

Under these conditions, the university starts to look less like a place of free exchange of ideas and more like a Hobbesian Leviathan, a place that boasts, as former SUNY New Paltz president Roger Bowen warns, “a settled, conforming, obedient citizenry—not dissenters who challenge convention.” In these departments, junior faculty either conform or withdraw from departmental life after being tenured. The bottom line is raised to the top. Research that promotes the financial and hierarchical health of the administration is rewarded while independent scholarly thought is punished. Institutions of higher education become ones of education for hire. Undue administrative influence over research agendas, appointed department chairs and the further erosion of democratic governance, and the hiring of part-time and clinical faculty with no time for scholarly inquiry and little job security are all threats to both critical inquiry and university democracy.

Before moving on to my final point, I want to point out that these conditions are created not only by university administration but also by a complicit faculty who would rather not sacrifice research time to engage in something as time-consuming as democratic governance. In other words, a repressive hierarchy is not required for non-democratic decision-making to flourish. Were university administrators to honour democratic faculty governance fully, would faculty step up to the plate? Under a corporate model of governance, appointed department chairs may stay in their positions for a decade or more. A democratic model, however, would require those deeply engaged in scholarship and research to be willing (or required) to take on leadership positions in administration, in addition to their roles as teacher and scholar. Countering an increasingly hierarchical and corporatized model of university governance requires commitments of time and energy that many faculty now shun but that a just workplace requires.

The corporate benefits of the meritocracy myth

One final characteristic of the newly corporatized campus I want to address is the complicity of the professorial (and graduate student) culture. The pervasive culture of increasing individualism results in a story we tell ourselves that goes something like this: “We work in a merit-based system.  If I do my job correctly — if I’m a good graduate student or a good professor and I’m smart and I do my work well — I will be rewarded with a plum teaching assignment, and I will be part of the academic elite and get a job.” This is an unfortunate state of affairs for two reasons. The first is economic and concerns the entrenched system of academic labour. The simple reality is that for the majority of disciplines, the claim that the system is merit-based is just not true. There are vastly more qualified, hardworking individuals than there are tenure-track and tenured academic positions for them to fill. At a certain level of proficiency, it becomes the luck of the draw.

But the second cost of an emphasis on individualism in the form of the meritocracy myth might be more insidious. Faculty focused only on individualized measures of professional success miss out on the collective action that has an extensive history in democratic societies and that has sustained and driven countless scholars, artists, scientists, and activists: working together towards a common end. Merit-based rewards encourages faculty to work behind office doors, estranged from colleagues. As Marc Bousquet points out in his book, How the University Works, believing in the fantasy of merit results in a great loss to everyone, including those dubbed meritorious.

The corporate university, on the other hand, advances and benefits from the illusion that each of us will attain rock-star status in the academy. Some readers might recall the episode of the television show West Wing when fictional President Jeb Bartlett explains why Americans seem to vote against their own interests by protecting a tax system that benefits only the super rich. “It doesn’t matter if most voters don’t benefit,” he explains, “They all believe that someday they will. That’s the problem with the American dream. It makes everyone concerned for the day they’re going to be rich.” And so it goes for the star system in the academy. The more graduate students and professors believe that their hopes for professional satisfaction lies in superstar recognition for their individual work rather than in collective meaning-making and action, the easier it is for democratic life in the university to be compromised.

Conclusion

The language of individual entrepreneurship has become all-pervasive across many sectors of society.  It has, therefore, become increasingly difficult for faculty, administrators, students, and public officials even to talk about the public role of universities in a democratic society. This was not always the case. Universities in Canada, as elsewhere, were founded on ideals of knowledge and service in the public interest. Universities had a noble mission – if not always fulfilled – to create knowledge and foster learning that would serve the public good and contribute to the social welfare. Academic workers at all levels and of all kinds need to fight to regain this central mission. What is the role of the university in fostering civic leadership, civic engagement, and social cohesion? How can education re-invigorate democratic participation? How can colleges and universities strengthen our communities and our connections to one another?

I sometimes ask my education students to consider how schools in a democratic society should differ from those in a totalitarian nation. It seems plausible that a good lesson in chemistry or a foreign language might seem equally at home in many parts of the world. Every nation wants its educational institutions to prepare students for active participation in the workforce. So what would be different about teaching and learning in a Canadian classroom than in a classroom in a country governed by a one-ruling-party dictatorship? Most of us would like to believe that schools in a democratic nation would foster the skills and dispositions needed to participate fully in democratic life; namely, the ability to think critically and carefully about social policies, cultural assumptions and, especially, relations of power. Many schoolteachers and university professors, however, are concerned that students are learning more about how to please authority and secure a job than how to develop democratic convictions and stand up for them.

There are many powerful ways to teach young adults to think critically about social policy issues, participate in authentic debate over matters of importance, and understand that people of good will can have different opinions. Indeed democratic progress depends on these differences. If universities hope to strengthen democratic society, they must resist focusing  curriculum and research on skills-training, workforce preparation, and the commercialization of knowledge to the benefit of private industry. They must instead participate in the rebuilding of a public purpose for education. How to do so is a matter of professorial imagination.

OLDDOGS OLD EYES

October 6th, 2016 by

By OLDDOG

Those of you who keep track of things will have noticed I missed publishing anything yesterday-10 05 16. You will also have noticed that has not happened in many years, and the reason for my delinquency was I had the second of two cataract surgery’s yesterday and the results were considerably more painful and disorienting, not to mention the aggravation of reading a couple dozen articles to select from, but the follow up visit today convinced me it will soon settle down and I will enjoy the improvement in both eyes.

Perhaps my addition to speed shooting increased the mental trauma this morning as I had banked on having neer perfect vision in both eyes again and retiring my glasses. The surgeon set my mind to rest on my expectations of instant success and I have regained the confidence of lowering my five shot string to consistently being in the 2.74 seconds range, which is phenomenal for a 76 year old man.

If the first surgery had not been so perfect in all details I would not have been so upset, which is apparently all attributed to my expectations for instant gratification in all things; as patience is not one of my few virtues. The timer just activated so it’s time for more eye drops. Have a good day, and feast your eye’s on Brandon Smith’s mind candy below.

How the FBI and DOJ criminalize honest citizens while allowing the criminals in Washington to get away with treason

October 1st, 2016 by

http://www.federalobserver.com/2016/07/06/how-the-fbi-and-doj-criminalize-honest-citizens-while-allowing-the-criminals-in-washington-to-get-away-with-treason/#more-28633

10-1-2016-9-27-38-am

By Mike Adams

Regardless of your political affiliation, this is a must-read article because it describes in raw, naked detail how the FBI / DOJ justice scam really operates in America. Remember, thanks to the absolute corruption of Washington D.C., “justice” really means “just us.” In other words, the politically connected elite write laws and carry out the selective prosecution of laws solely to serve their own self-interest.

And if you’re not part of the politically connected elite, you’re automatically guilty and will sooner or later be prosecuted under some wildly exaggerated, arcane rendition of a law that’s never applied to people like Hillary Clinton.

Here’s exactly how the FBI and DOJ carry out their “justice theater” that’s essentially nothing more than gross injustice that exists in violation of the rule of law.

Step 1: Generate hundreds of thousands of laws and regulations that ensnare anyone who might be targeted for scrutiny
The first step in achieving selecting prosecution is to pass so many laws that no human being can possibly be innocent of them all.

Read the book Three Felonies a Day to learn the startling truth that the average American unknowingly commits three felony crimes each day (thanks to all the insane laws on the books).

The point is that no ordinary person can survive scrutiny without being arrested, prosecuted and jailed.

Step 2: Practice selective prosecution to target your political enemies while looking the other way for your political friends
Since everybody is guilty of three felonies a day, the job of the politically-motivated FBI or DOJ simply becomes one of choosing whom to target.

Since every person in America can be brought up on criminal charges if their actions are sufficiently scrutinized, the goal of criminalizing the government’s enemies is achieved in the simplest manner possible: Focusing surveillance and scrutiny on those individuals the political regime wants to imprison.

And now that the federal government has all your financial records, email records, search engine queries, web surfing activities and even your careless social media posts, they can easily easily link you to any number of crimes you unknowingly committed by violating the multitude of confusing laws you didn’t even know existed.

While people like Hillary Clinton get away with treason by claiming they “didn’t mean to do it,” when the FBI comes knocking on your door, they’ll calmly explain to you that “ignorance of the law is no excuse.”

See, laws are for the little people like you and me… not for the Washington elite.

Step 3: If your political friends happen to get caught breaking the law, refuse to prosecute them… problem solved!
Despite the best efforts of the corrupted mainstream media to cover up the criminal behavior of the political establishment, every once in a while some member of the political elite gets caught engaging in a violation of law that’s so heinous, it can’t be swept under the rug.

What to do in such situations? Just “pull a James Comey” and announce to the world that you refuse to prosecute the person who violated those laws. After all, prosecutorial discretion means that “career prosecutors” who work for DOJ can decide to ignore the criminality of all their friends.

And who are their friends? Remember that all the prosecutors who work for DOJ are paid by the government. They know where their paychecks come from, and they fully realize that if they ever attempted to prosecute someone with sufficient power in government, their own careers would be destroyed.

Thus, the primary function of the DOJ becomes one of suppressing the sheeple while protecting the criminal class of Washington political operatives.

Step 4: Arm up all federal departments with military weapons while calling for the complete disarmament of the population
Another important step in accelerating the FBI / DOJ war against the American people is to call for the mass disarmament of the citizenry while ramping up the paramilitary wings of every major government agency with a huge influx of military weapons.

Today, right now, the EPA runs its own paramilitary organization, complete with weapons of war to be trained upon U.S. citizens. From Circanews.com:

The U.S. Agriculture Department’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service doesn’t seem like a Wild West sort of federal agency since its biologists mostly check on the human health impact of animal and plant species.

But it reported buying $4.7 million in high-powered weapons, ammunition and military gear during the last decade, including shotguns, night vision goggles, and propane cannons, according to federal purchasing records reviewed by the nonpartisan government spending watchdog openthebooks.com.

It turns out that U.S. federal agencies are spending between $150 million and $200 million per year on military gear and weapons. While this is happening, the very same government criminals who are granted selective immunity against prosecution for treasonous acts are all over the mainstream media calling for the complete disarmament of the population.

All the guns in America, it turns out, belong solely in the hands of the government… according to government. Funny how that always leads to genocide and tyranny, isn’t it?

Step 5: To sweep up even more citizens into prosecutions, plot acts of domestic terrorism, then recruit low-IQ citizens who you then “catch” in the act
Here’s an irrefutable fact about the FBI that very few people realize is true: The agency routinely plans domestic terrorism attacks and draws up the plans and equipment to carry them out. FBI agents then run around the bad parts of town, recruiting hapless (and sometimes even HOMELESS) victims to carry out those acts of terrorism so they can be conveniently “caught in the act.”

Right before the bomb goes off, the FBI swoops in and declares victory for “stopping domestic terrorism.” Yet, in all these cases, it was the FBI that masterminded the acts of terror in the first place.

We have extensively documented this fraudulent phenomenon here on Natural News, including in this article review of the book “The Terrorist Factory: Inside the FBI’s Manufactured War on Terror.” The New York Times has ever covered the FBI’s fake terror plots, believe it or not.

Also, check out these stories: FBI intercepts its own terrorist plot against US Capitol, Pentagon and FBI halts terror plot dreamed up by the FBI, then claims victory against terrorism.

Like almost everything else done by the fraudulent federal government in America, the FBI is mostly a theatrical production company engaged in elaborate street theater. We now know that most of the so-called “crimes” that are halted by the FBI actually consist of drugged-out patsies who were recruited by the FBI to carry out FBI-inspired terror attacks. Meanwhile, any actual criminals who commit actual crimes ­ like Hillary Clinton ­ are given a free pass even when their crimes violate national security.

The FBI, much like the DOJ and every other federal agency, has become a joke… a hollow shadow of its former self and the laughing stock of informed citizens everywhere. The public perception now is that the only crimes the FBI seems to be able to stop are those crimes its own agents dreamed up in the first place. Yet the agency can’t seem to nail the worst criminals of all… the ones in power in Washington who commit the most heinous crimes against the entire nation by selling out the White House to foreign interests.

Why the citizens are nearing REVOLT
This is how it all works today in the corrupt America we are all desperately trying to save from sinking into despotism. The rule of law has been abandoned everywhere in Washington, and now the agencies of the federal government clearly exist for no other reason than to consolidate power in Washington, no matter what methods of tyranny and totalitarianism must be unleashed against the citizenry.

Those citizens, it turns out, are nearing a state of mass revolt. The obvious criminality in Washington has gone too far. The cover-ups are too numerous. The weaponization of government against innocent people is modeled after totalitarian regimes that almost always end in genocide. Today in America, there are journalists who sit in prison for no reason other than the fact that the government did not like what they reported. There are ranchers in prison who were convicted of the same “crime” the BLM carries out routinely (accidentally burning too much acreage in a controlled burn of rural ranch land). There are whistleblowers in prison who tried to warn the public, but the Obama administration has prosecuted more whistleblowers than all the other presidential administrations combined… across the entire history of America.

The last straw is now the government’s brazen attempt to completely disarm the citizenry ­ an effort aided by the truly retarded verbal grunts of Hollywood morons like Matt Damon (who now insists that only government officials should have guns, not citizens). This effort will be accelerated in the near future with larger and more numerous false flag shootings, staged by the same theatrical production agencies that already stage fake terror plots to claim victory for “stopping terrorism.” Do you think you know the real story of the Sandy Hook massacre? Watch this video to learn about the ACTORS who played key roles as both parents and FBI swat team members (yes, the same guy plays both roles in all the media coverage).

Elaborate theater to weave a prison for your mind
It’s all theater, friends. The media, the FBI, the DOJ, the U.S. Senate, the Federal Reserve and even the rule of law. It’s all elaborate theater carried out as a prison for your mind, to keep you occupied, confused and manipulated so that you never figure out the greater truth that threatens the entire corrupt establishment.

What greater truth is that? The simple fact that all government power is granted by the People and can be instantly taken away by the People with nothing more than a consensus decision. Government and the rule of law exist as nothing more than consensus mental constructs ­ structural delusions of the mind that are widely shared and thus believed to be real. But government can collapse in an instant when the fraudulent promises of government suddenly collapse in the minds of the populace. Hence the need for drastic, elaborate financial theater to create the illusion of a booming economy even as we teeter on the verge of global, systemic economic collapse.

(By the way, “faith” in fiat currency is also a mental construct that can be shattered in an instant. The only reason another person accepts your green paper dollars as money is because you both share a false believe in the agreed-upon underlying value of the digits printed in cheap ink on near-worthless fiber. If that illusion of value is shattered in both your minds, dollars immediately collapse into worthlessness because they have no tangible value. All fiat money systems are run entirely on FAITH… and faith is fleeting when it comes to money.)

The illusion of government power depends on the continued indoctrination and intimidation of the enslaved masses
Those who run government fully realize that they are a tiny minority who rule only by fiat. Their rule depends entirely on the masses believing in the delusions played in for their minds by the ruling elite. If that delusion were to ever be shattered and the people realized how they were being fraudulently manipulated and exploited, the political elite wouldn’t survive even 24 hours (and there would be a dire shortage of rope in the D.C. area in particular).

That’s the bigger, deeper picture of what’s really happening around you right now. You are living in a nation that’s run by a corrupt, criminal elite who carry out campaigns of elaborate delusion to enslave and manipulate the clueless masses who keep robotically voting for their very own slave masters. Any person who attempts to free the slaves is deemed an enemy of the state and is subjected to selective prosecutorial scrutiny to have them imprisoned (as described above).

In fact, the only reason I am still allowed to function as a relatively free citizen in this nation is because my articles simply aren’t popular enough to warrant the effort of oppression. I’m relatively safe, in other words, because my reach is so tiny compared to the mainstream media. Interestingly, that also means that you who are reading this are among the top 1% of the most informed individuals in the world. You are reading and learning about these eye opening, fundamental truths that 99% of the population will never encounter (partly because the 99% don’t have the mental fortitude to even face reality in the first place, since believing in popular fairy tales requires no real effort… and besides, there are Oreo cookies that need licking, right?).

As long as the system can continue to censor my message and keep it restricted to less than 1% of the population ­ via Google and Facebook censorship, mostly ­ then I will be “allowed” to continue my work because it doesn’t legitimately threaten the establishment in any serious way. But if my message ever somehow explodes in popularity and breaks through 10% of the population, then I would be in serious danger and would be silenced in one way or another. Remember, selective prosecution can target ANYONE and indict them for unknowingly committing three felonies a day.

10-1-2016-9-27-58-am

Have no fear, however: My message of truth is not of much interest to 99% of the population. They are far too happy in their Golden Corral, GMO-infested junk food eat-a-thon fairy tale illusions to ever bother investigating reality. There is virtually zero risk to the establishment that my words will ever be embraced by more than a tiny fraction of the population. Deep truth, it seems, has never really been that popular in delusional societies.

You may now return to your regularly scheduled programming…

WHAT AND WHO IS A NIGGER

September 25th, 2016 by

By Olddog

 

Up until about 1970 many white people who had been raised by prejudice parents still referred to Black people as niggers and even today the lower class black people refer to some blacks as niggers, but over-all the term has surrendered to public pressure and blacks are called blacks or black people.

It is unfortunate that our ancestors were so inconsiderate and greedy as to enslave another race regardless of their ancestry, but that was then and this is now, which makes things a lot different, and I personally have changed my habitual slandering of all races, and consider it a social requirement to be non condemning vocally as well as mentally. Well, at least I try!

One must consider the horror and the social responsibility to rectify our past inconsideration of any person regardless of their ethnic origin, their social position and any other circumstance that may affect their life, liberty, happiness and opportunities. We are all human beings, regardless of some who have advanced physical or mental abilities.

That said! There still remains the problem of hatred for a particular person who has done or said something unforgivable to ourselves or our neighbors and loved ones. And on that score I will call someone I hate any damn thing I please, and it pleases me to define the title of this rant by explaining what and who is a nigger.

Obuma is a nigger! but not because of his skin color. He is a nigger because of who he is as a person. That is my unforgivable opinion of this asshole some uninformed people call the President of the United States when in fact, he is the CEO of a corporation that has usurped our Constitution and subjected us to the whims of the International Investment Banking Cartel, and they’re United Nations corporation.

He has destroyed America’s good name and reputation world wide and is one step away from causing a global holocaust. He has defrauded his position and the American people in every way possible. So in my mind he’s a NIGGER, and I will not ever apologize to anyone regardless of the cost. I use this term because it has migrated into the most hated of all vocalizations. I sincerely hope he suffers the most long lasting, mentally agonizing, and physically painful death possible. NUFF-SAID!

The Nightmare World of a Hillary Clinton Presidency

September 12th, 2016 by

http://newstarget.com/2016-09-09-the-nightmare-world-of-a-hillary-clinton-presidency.html

9-12-2016-8-19-53-am

The nation is a proverbial derriere hair away from the deluded, twisted, hell on earth world of a Hillary Clinton Presidency.

Article by Ray Starmann

Make no mistake about it. Hillary Clinton isn’t just another Democrat, a political rival of Republicans. She is a lying criminal who exhibits sociopathic traits. Hillary Clinton is a dangerous, reckless narcissist who believes the world owes her the Presidency and who bows to globalist policies and operatives like the demonic, George Soros.

Let us hope that the nightmare scenario below never develops:

Donald Trump rallies in the polls the last 75 days of the election. He and Hillary Clinton are neck and neck by Election Day. The Clinton campaign conducts widespread voting fraud and is able to secure victory on the night of November 8 th . Trump files numerous lawsuits, but they are stalled in federal courts and will never see the light of day.

President Hillary Clinton’s first act as President is to turn the Clinton Foundation back on. Instead of shutting its doors, it is running at full speed, turning the Oval Office into a casino for pay to play schemes, where the house always wins and the dealer is Bill Clinton.

You can’t have the Clinton Foundation without a couple private, non-secure servers. This time the servers are set up in the bathroom stall of a Fairfax, Virginia, Starbucks.

President Hillary Clinton chooses a radical, left wing socialist judge to replace Judge Scalia on the Supreme Court. With a combination of executive orders, a Democratic run Congress and the Supreme Court tilted toward the left, the Second Amendment is eviscerated in a matter of weeks. Universal gun control is now the law of the land, a law that many Americans on the right refuse to obey. A pro-gun resistance group called 1776 gains popularity and begins to push back against the gun control laws. Pockets of patriot resistance begin to dot the land from Maine to Alaska.

The stock market continues to be nothing more than a chimera, representing only the speculative trades of too big to fail investment banks, while the hopes and dreams of the average American are crushed under the weight of globalist economic policies that outsource American jobs and companies.

The Coal Industry is shut down; thousands lose their jobs and join the ranks of over 130 million Americans who are out of the workforce. Seventy million Americans are now on food stamps and 75 million Americans live under the poverty level.

Jorge Ramos is chosen as the first Secretary of Open Borders, becoming the man who throws away the key to America’s national security, subsequently allowing tens of millions of undocumented Hispanics and Muslims into the country.

Obama Care rolls along with its obscene premiums and lousy health care companies. Any reputable health insurance companies are long gone from this government monstrosity. It is a horrendously expensive train wreck, a gigantic facade that offers insurance for all and provides for none.

Across the land, veterans continue to wait for treatment and die. All calls for privatizing the VA are laughed at and silenced. The VA hospitals become more corrupt and inefficient, sucking millions out of the government that line the pockets of criminally inept VA officials.

Planned Parenthood operates 24/7, conducting late term abortions, selling body parts and organs and dealing in death like a modern day Nazi Concentration Camp Medical Clinic run by modern day Dr. Mengeles.

A Black Lives Matter anarchist is named head of the Department of Homeland Security. Other Black Lives Matter members regularly meet with Hillary Clinton in the Oval Office.

Blackmailed for years by the Chinese and Russians, Hillary Clinton operates at the whim and fancy of President Xi and Putin. They have her by the proverbial long johns. She inadvertently becomes the first communist agent to sit in the White House since Harry Hopkins.

FBI Counter-Intelligence has damning evidence that Huma Abedin is a Saudi Intelligence officer, who has been passing on top secret information to the Saudis for years, while posing as Mrs. Clinton’s faithful all around gopher. The evidenceand the investigation disappear like Vince Foster and his files at the National Archives .

Obama’s disastrous Iran Nuclear Deal marches on. Iran continues to finance terrorism across the world, taking more US hostages and harassing a severely weakened US Navy in the Persian Gulf.

ISIS goes on a rampage across the world, knowing there is no one to stop them. Bombs explode from Berlin to London to Miami. Meanwhile, President Hillary Clinton still refuses to say the words, “Radical Islamic Terrorism.”

The feminist destruction of the military is now a done deal. The US military looks great on a power point presentation, but in actuality is a feckless paper tiger and simply incapable of winning any wars. A Berkeley professor and four star female Coast Guard Reserve admiral becomes the Chairwoman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Common Core continues unabated, educating no one, frustrating teachers and costing the US government millions in wasted funds.

Breitbart, Drudge and Infowars are shut down by the government under false charges of tax evasion and inciting hate and violence. Matt Drudge, Alex Jones and Stephen Bannon sit in federal prison, awaiting trial.

President Hillary Clinton’s health becomes more of a mystery. Rumors seep out of the White House about her seizures, bed wetting, dementia and violent outbursts. President Hillary Clinton has not conducted a press conference for 708 days. She does call Anderson Cooper regularly from her Oval Office couch though, and conducts weekly fireside chats by Skype audio to a perplexed nation.

This country is at a tipping point. There has simply been no election in recent  history that is as important as the current one. If Hillary Clinton is elected, it will be a victory for the globalist criminals that fund her campaign, direct her every action and more importantly, who seek to bring America to its knees, by weakening our economy, our national security, our family structure, our churches, our military and our way of life.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

Please notify all of your liberal friends and family that Olddog from anationbeguiled.com says anyone stupid enough to vote for Killary Clinton has shit for brains. And there are plenty of them in America. If they had any brains at all, they would not vote for anyone, as it is nothing more than a method for the Investments Bankers to verify the success of their mind manipulation in America. The decision was made long ago to bleed Americans dry and then eliminate them.

 Meaning of “United States person”

http://supremelaw.org/cc/hicks/memo04.htm

The meaning of “U.S. Individual” as that term occurs

on IRS Forms 1040 is a very important clue.

We explained it carefully and with sufficient detail

in this MEMORANDUM:

To prove this in the IRC, combine IRC 7701(a)(1)

and IRC 7701(a)(30).

In those 2 statutes, federal citizens and resident aliens

are the only living, breathing human variants of

“United States person”; all other variants are

artificial, juristic entities like corporations.

The hardest part to understand, for those not familiar

with any of the deliberate deceptions built into the IRC,

is the correct legal meaning of “citizen of the United States”.

After much research and litigation, and Courts which concur,

a “citizen of the United States” is a “citizen of the federal government”:

http://supremelaw.org/rsrc/twoclass.htm  (particularly the most recent cases)

The larger issue concerns the historical origins of federal citizenship,

which is expressly defined as such in multiple Editions of

Black’s Law Dictionary:

http://supremelaw.org/ref/dict/federal.citizenship.htm

And, of course, there is also substantial proof that

the Regulation implementing IRC section 1

attempted to create a specific liability for

federal citizens and resident aliens, but withOUT

the required Act of Congress:

http://supremelaw.org/cfr/26/26cfr1.1-1.htm#b

A thorough review of the relevant history can be

found in this essay:  “Citizenship for Dummies”:

http://supremelaw.org/authors/mitchell/citizenship.for.dummies.htm
http://www.supremelaw.org/authors/mitchell/comments.on.citizenship.for.dummies.htm

And, our 31Q&A has been consistently the most popular

file among over 120,000 discrete files now archived on the Internet

in the Supreme Law Library:  www.supremelaw.org

http://supremelaw.org/sls/31answers.htm
http://supremelaw.org/sls/31Q&A.in.evidence.htm

And, the rest of that story can be found in the extensive

documentation in “The Federal Zone” first published in 1992:

http://supremelaw.org/fedzone11/
http://supremelaw.org/fedzone11/fedzone.in.evidence.htm

Lastly, the required perjury jurat on all Forms 1040

is a very important reason why Americans should NOT

be executing that Form if they are neither federal citizens

nor resident aliens:

http://www.supremelaw.org/letters/irs.perjury.jurats.htm

The format for Form 1040 perjury jurats is the one for

verifications made INSIDE the federal zone:

http://supremelaw.org/sls/31answers.htm#Q16

The 50 States are OUTSIDE (without) the federal zone.

Are You a Mind Controlled CIA Stooge?

September 1st, 2016 by

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2016/08/31/are-you-a-mind-controlled-cia-stooge-paul-craig-roberts/

By Paul Craig Roberts

Do you smirk when you hear someone question the official stories of Orlando, San Bernardino, Paris or Nice? Do you feel superior to 2,500 architects and engineers, to firefighters, commercial and military pilots, physicists and chemists, and former high government officials who have raised doubts about 9/11? If so, you reflect the profile of a mind-controlled CIA stooge.

The term “conspiracy theory” was invented and put into public discourse by the CIA in 1964 in order to discredit the many skeptics who challenged the Warren Commission’s conclusion that President John F. Kennedy was assassinated by a lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald, who himself was assassinated while in police custody before he could be questioned. The CIA used its friends in the media to launch a campaign to make suspicion of the Warren Commission report a target of ridicule and hostility. This campaign was “one of the most successful propaganda initiatives of all time.”

So writes political science professor Lance deHaven-Smith, who in his peer-reviewed book, Conspiracy Theory in America, published by the University of Texas Press, tells the story of how the CIA succeeded in creating in the public mind reflexive, automatic, stigmatization of those who challenge government explanations. This is an extremely important and readable book, one of those rare books with the power to break you out of The Matrix.

Professor deHaven-Smith is able to write this book because the original CIA Dispatch #1035-960, which sets out the CIA plot, was obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request. Apparently, the bureaucracy did not regard a document this old as being of any importance. The document is marked “Destroy when no longer needed,” but somehow wasn’t. CIA Dispatch #1035-960 is reproduced in the book.

The success that the CIA has had in stigmatizing skepticism of government explanations has made it difficult to investigate State Crimes Against Democracy (SCAD) such as 9/11. With the public mind programmed to ridicule “conspiracy kooks,” even in the case of suspicious events such as 9/11 the government can destroy evidence, ignore prescribed procedures, delay an investigation, and then form a political committee to put its imprimatur on the official story. Professor deHaven-Smith notes that in such events as Kennedy’s assassination and 9/11 official police and prosecutorial investigations are never employed. The event is handed off to a political commission.

Professor deHaven-Smith’s book supports what I have told my readers: the government controls the story from the beginning by having the official explanation ready the moment a SCAD occurs. This makes any other explanation a “conspiracy theory.” This is the way Professor deHaven-Smith puts it:

“A SCAD approach to memes assumes further that the CIA and other possibly participating agencies are formulating memes well in advance of operations, and therefore SCAD memes appear and are popularized very quickly before any competing concepts are on the scene.”

The CIA’s success in controlling public perception of what our Founding Fathers would have regarded as suspicious events involving the government enables those in power positions within government to orchestrate events that serve hidden agendas. The events of September 11 created the new paradigm of endless war in behalf of a Washington-dominated world. The CIA’s success in controlling public perceptions has made it impossible to investigate elite political crimes. Consequently, it is now possible for treason to be official US government policy.

Professor deHaven-Smith’s book will tell you the story of the assassination of President Kennedy by elements of the US military, CIA, and Secret Service. Just as the Warren Commission covered up the State Crime Against Democracy, Professor deHaven-Smith shows why we should doubt the official 9/11 story. And anything else that the government tells us.

Read this book. It is short. It is affordable. It is reality preparation. It will innoculate you against being a dumbshit, insouciant, brainwashed American. I am surprised that the CIA has not purchased the entire print run and burned the books. Perhaps the CIA feels secure from its success in brainwashing the public and does not believe that American democracy and accountable government can be restored.

Well what the hell is happening to us?????

August 31st, 2016 by

By Marilyn Barnewall

Personal Mail

I got an email from a friend.  It bothers me in two ways… the fact that what it identifies as problems is accurate and the fact that those who made the problems possible are not properly identified.  So I’m giving you my editorial analysis of the email before you read it.

 All of the written words contained in the email after my comments here do make me angry… but what insults me is the placing of total blame on those who are elected to office to serve.  Do I believe any of them have done a good job?  Maybe a handful, but certainly not many.  How did they get elected?  They were chosen and financially supported by the RNC and the DNC.  Who gave the money to the RNC and DNC to support Republican or Democrat candidates without really checking to find out who they are?  THE PEOPLE!  Who is supposed to select political candidates?  THE PEOPLE!  They are supposed to find and support men and women of character who won’t look at being sent to Washington as a career, rather just a temporary job.  Who got so lazy they gave up involvement with their political system and gave the RNC and the DNC the power to select political candidates?  THE PEOPLE!  For 50 years, Republicans have voted for anyone who was a Republican, same for Democrats. 

 That was the great weakness that allowed this silent shadow coup of our government… all “they” had to do was gain control of the RNC and the DNC then make sure the only candidates that got financial support (which translates to “elected”) were the morally compromised who could be made to do whatever was asked of them by the RNC and DNC.  The number one responsibility of being an American citizen is not voting — they sold everyone on that lie so they could achieve their power takeover of both political parties.  The number one responsibility of an American citizen is finding the highest quality political candidates available to run for office and then support them.  You do not send money — and continue to send money — to the very organization which has filled our Congress with thieves, crooks and otherwise morally compromised people.

 What is said in this email is accurate as it relates to the problems.  What is said as to who is to blame is inaccurate.  We, the People, are specifically to blame for letting the RNC and DNC gain so much power.  How many people who read this will attend their Republican or Democrat monthly luncheon and become involved in making sure that those who run the local political system have stong moral character?  Very darned few!  It’s not that hard to take back control of the political parties and their leadership… you just have to attend Party functions and make sure to get strong candidates for office within the Party nominated and supported.  This isn’t hard.  It doesn’t require going door-to-door to get petitions signed or putting signs in your yard.  It just requires getting enough people who are concerned about their nation to go with you to attend Party functions at the County level.  The Officers of each County are the ones who select the State Party officials.  Thus, changing things at the County level changes things at the State level. You go to a luncheon once a month.  You take friends who are also concerned about their country with you.  So you go to a political lunch once a month.  You get on their mailing list and attend one Party function every six weeks!  Wow!  A horrible price to pay to maintain your freedom… your right to keep having barbecues and boy’s out card nights! 

 That’s how you change the character of the political parties who have pulled off a coup… a takeover of our government with little in the way of Civil War.  MB 

Well….., what the hell is happening to us?????

Democrats and Republicans
“””””(‘different’ ONLY in name)”””””

Someone please tell me what the HELL’s wrong with all the people that run this country!!!!

 Both Democrats and Republicans Say, “We’re broke” And can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless, Etc.,?????

But, over the last several years THEY have provided direct cash aid to….
Hamas – $351 M,

Libya- $1.45 B,

Egypt- $397 M,

Mexico- $622 M,

Russia– 380 M,

Haiti-  $1.4 B,

Jordan- $463 M,

Kenya- $816 M,

Sudan- $870 M,

Nigeria- $456 M,

Uganda- $451 M,

Congo- $359 M,

Ethiopia- $981 M,

Pakistan- $2 B

South Africa- $566 M,

Senegal- $698 M,

Mozambique- $404 M,

Zambia- $331 M,

Kazakhstan- $304 M,

Iraq- $1.08 B,

Tanzania- $554 M,

…with literally Billions of Dollars, and those buttheads still hate us!!!!
But on the other hand, Our retired seniors, Living on a ‘fixed income,’

Receive NO aid!

Nor do they get any breaks, while our government and religious organizations will pour

Hundreds of Billions Of $$$$$$’s and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries!

Someone needs to explain to them that Charity begins AT HOME!!!

 And another atrocity….

We have Hundreds of adoptable American Children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption OF Foreign   Orphans.

AMERICA: A country where we have
Countless Homeless without shelter,
Children going to bed hungry,
Elderly going without needed medication
and the Mentally ill without treatment — etc.

YET……….
 They will have a ‘Benefit’ Show For the people of Haiti , on 12 TV Stations; Ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents  clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies.

 Now Just Imagine if Our own *GOVERNMENT* Gave ‘US’ the same support they give to foreign countries.

One of the things at the top of Trump’s list (America First).  They’re scared silly of him and worried their gravy train will be gone if they allow him to be elected! I’m not a fan of his mouth, but his opponent is already part of the problem and hasn’t done anything about it, and won’t.

Sad, isn’t it?

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

THE ANSWER IS SIMPLE:

The International Investment Central Banking Cartel is using all this money to build their New World Order. There is not one politician world wide that is immune from their wrath when refusing to comply. At this point, non-cooperation is suicide or imprisonment.

One solution remains, and that is for some government to order the bankers extermination.

Dito for the education and media heads.

The elimination of corporate governments and the return to a republican form of government world wide.

The cooperation of all governments to issue a universal commodity backed currency.

Follow the government building method described by Marilyn above.

Follow the advice of our founders and avoid entanglements with other governments.

Do not let sympathy smother common sense. One must be strong and capable before nursing the world. Make the introduction of other forms of Government a capital offense and there is to be only one political party in America, THE FREEDOM PARTY!

Introduce a world wide instruction manual as a suggestion to the world why instilling freedom in the minds of every child should be a global responsibility.

Promote the universal acceptance that humans are born depraved and must be instructed on accountability.

The legal structure of Corporations must be reorganized and be without personhood.

The Pope and Queen of England must withdraw all liens on corporate government’s world wide.

Every human being on earth should have a Freedom Birth Certificate and no passports are required anywhere.

If any government encounters one or more terrorist,

Post their heads on a stake.

There should be little if any difference between governments world wide, as every human being deserves freedom from tyranny. When individuals world wide are thinking alike there will be peace and prosperity.

The above is the only New World Order I will accept.

Update on Living Law Firm Progress

August 30th, 2016 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2016/08/update-on-living-law-firm-progress.html

12-21-2015 3-19-06 PMby Anna Von Reitz

Foreclosures:
We expect that by the end of this week we will have the actual structure and mechanism of the foreclosure fraud detailed out, step by step, in a way that average non-accountants can follow along and grasp. That step by step will give the citations to the patents and trademarks and other public records that are all admissible evidence in any court. We are going to release this to the general public, for free, and let you have at it in your individual cases— at the same time that we pursue remedy in behalf of all Americans. (Flag donations to this effort as: “End Foreclosure Fraud”)

Non-Citizen Status:

We have determined that we, living, breathing Americans are called “United States Nationals” in Federal-eze when it comes to international affairs and are called “American State Nationals” or simply “Nationals” when it comes to business here at home. “National” refers to the land jurisdiction of this country.
So if you are talking to the Passport agencies, tell them you are a “United States National, not a United States Citizen” (unless, of course, you are actually employed by, dependent on, or voluntarily chartered as a corporation by the federal government) and if, for example, you are talking to the Governor of the State of New Mexico, tell him that you are a Texan (not a Resident) who has established residency (which is different) in New Mexico—and you’d like to know what is being done about illegal immigration?
We hope to have routed through the correct process for American State Nationals to obtain correct passports very soon and will publish that info as soon as we are sure we’ve nailed it down and have resource contacts for you. (Flag donations to this project as: “Correct Passports”)

Name Change:
All research and all feedback received to date demonstrates the necessity of claiming back your Trade Name and re-conveying it to the land jurisdiction of the United States— and recording the deed to your own Name. Otherwise, technically, you are a “disregarded entity” and these foreign corporations claim to own YOU — and use the ACCOUNT NAME as a convenient handle to lay false claims against your assets. Once you have your own Trade Name back in your control and operating in proper jurisdiction you can use it to reclaim everything else. Several people have written and been distressed over more complex or expensive name-change processes in their states. Though I recommend getting a formal name change decree — which puts the court on record as agreeing to your action—if at all possible, you can also try a simple Deed of Re-conveyance, laying claim to your Trade Name and removing it to the land jurisdiction of your actual state—- Arkansas State not State of Arkansas— for example. Record it, and if necessary give a land description– “land assets and moveable fixtures generally located at:________________________”. (435 St. Mary’s Street, Hoboken, New Jersey, for example).

Federal Marshals Education:
There are “Federal Marshals” tasked with peacekeeping on the land jurisdiction and there are “United States Marshals” tasked with law enforcement in the foreign, international jurisdiction of the sea. One executes the Public Law and the other executes private international corporate Statutes. Educating these men and women (and also their parallels in state and local government positions) is essential. Even our locally elected Sheriffs are in desperate need of education on these topics. We’ve launched an effort to write a quick-and-easy handbook for those responsible for protecting our communities. We are looking for people who have experience with e-publishing to help expedite this process and also for donations toward printing hard copies for free distribution of these materials. (Flag donations to this project: Law Education Fund.)

American States and Nations Bank:
We have a core group of banking experts working on three different but related tasks— (1) creating a safe depository for American assets, especially those being returned from overseas; (2) creating secure international banks competent to work with both IEX and FOREX transactions and currency exchanges; (3) beginning to build actual State National Banks again, which are run by local bank associations. Along with this goes a lot of technical and security work—and we are doing the best we can to move it forward with limited start-up resources. This project also involves negotiations to receive long-stalled treaty funding owed to the actual States and Nations and recoupment of other property interests that have been held in abeyance—-in some cases since before the Civil War. There are an estimated 45,000 accounts at the national level that have to be secured and audited—which does not begin to deal with the same job that needs to be done at the county and state levels. (Flag donations to this effort: ASAN)

Jural Assemblies:

Building knowledgeable and effective Jural Assemblies is the key to building competent and honest county governments to operate the land jurisdiction of this country. If you have a Jural Assembly already started in your county, join and support it. If not, contact the Michigan General Jural Assembly, and use their proven methods to start one. Bear in mind that members must make a decision and declare that they are not “United States Citizens” but are instead “American State Nationals” before they can regain their lawful status and act as American Common Law Jurors.
(Donate time and money locally.)
****Please Note**** when you act as a juror you are for the time you serve considered an “American State Citizen” because you are occupying an office of the actual State. The same is true for the judges, clerks, bailiffs, sheriffs, and others you elect to serve in your County. The word “citizen” always implies an obligation to serve the government. In this case, you are offering to serve as a Juror.
So, a member of a County Jural Assembly must be an American State Citizen during the time they serve as Jurors and when the people come together to serve on a “Citizens Common Law Grand Jury” this is the kind of jury referenced as the Fourth Branch of Government in Justice Antonin Scalia’s famous ruling. This is American Common Law— the Law of the Land— in operation.
This is different from a Jural Society—which is what lawyers and “United States Citizens” belong to and use to operate the incorporated Counties in the international jurisdiction of the sea. When these people come together they also form what can be called a “Citizen’s Common Law Jury” — but they are operating under Martial Common Law, not the Law of the Land, and have no business pretending to be the Fourth Branch which was created to be a safeguard against usurpation and mismanagement by federal officials and employees, not just another fox to guard our hen house.

Jural Assembly = land jurisdiction (national) unincorporated
American State National = a man without obligation to government.
American State Citizen = man serving the government of his actual state on the land, for example Wisconsin State, Pennsylvania Commonwealth, etc., as a Juror, Clerk, Sheriff, etc.
Jural Society = sea jurisdiction (international) incorporated
United States Citizen = federal employee, dependent, or corporation serving that government, includes those operating the federated “State of” and “County of” franchises.

Always pay attention to the exact words being used. There is a world of difference between a “United States National” and a “United States Citizen” and an equally huge difference between a “Jural Assembly” and a “Jural Society”.
You must educate yourselves to avoid being misidentified, victimized, or entrapped by all this duplicitous wordplay. You must also do this to be able to properly and lawfully run the powerful people-based government you are owed.

International Outreach:

I call it this, because with the exception of our Native American representatives in the United Nations there are no competent people able and willing to speak for America and the American States at this time who have been lawfully elected or otherwise granted ambassadorial capacities –except that as sovereigns of the land jurisdiction we have and individually retain the ability to speak for our states on the land and for the Union of these States of America formed by The Articles of Confederation— under Article X.
This is the capacity in which I and my husband have been able to act as Judges and Ambassadors and Fiduciary Deputies for our States of America, and while—in theory at least—any living American can do this, not many of us have the education and capacity to do so at this time.
We find ourselves triple-tasked to: (1) find competent people in each state to enter into this work; (2) bring them up to speed and give them the information and tools they need; (3) get the current work done.
We have published many pieces of correspondence, both official correspondence when acting as Judges or Fiduciary Deputies, and private correspondences written to foreign leaders, so you have cause to know how important and time-consuming this effort to communicate with the rest of the world is.

Before we can solve problems we have to recognize what they are.
We have been able to detail where in history the train went off the track—- in England, during the reign of Queen Victoria, acting under the influence of Benjamin D’Israeli, leading to the subjugation of the English people by deceit and the subjugation of India by force.
This situation would be a Major Faux Pas if it were just the United States involved, but fortunately or unfortunately, most of the known world is involved in this mess.
The American People have to weigh in now to save their own bacon because they are being defrauded and mischaracterized and suffering extortion and racketeering at the hands of international banks and other commercial institutions. In raising our objections we must inform all the other people of the world who are similarly being run-ragged by gangs of officially sanctioned pirates and thieves.
And we must also “fully inform” those responsible. This means Congress. This means the United Nations. This means the IMF. This means the British Parliament. This means Queen Elizabeth. This means the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. And many, many, many, many more officials and corporate officers. This means, most especially, Pope Francis in his role as Roman Pontiff. Why? Because he can pull the charter on any incorporated entity that violates its charter and functions in a criminal manner—-and he has the obligation to do so.

This is why members of the Catholic Church and Catholic Clergy have a crucial role to play in correcting this horrific situation, both in terms of manpower and outcry, and in terms of enforcement against the offending corporations. These corporations are only allowed to exist by consent. They have no natural basis for their being. When they get out of control, living men must be responsible for (a) correcting their administrators; (b) imposing fines and penalties for bad behavior; (c) liquidating them.
By very long standing international convention and agreement, the responsibility for that oversight has always been with the Roman Curia and the Pope functioning as the Pontiff of Rome. That’s where it remains to this day.
My husband, I, and a dedicated group of others scattered across the United States and around the globe have spent incalculable hours engaged in this kind of forthright communication with “the entire world” for years at a time in order to raise the alarm, report the crime, and shine the light on the subversion of our treaties and agreements.
Now, maybe you feel overawed by the prospect of writing a letter to the President or the Pope or Queen Elizabeth or the Congress or Chief Justice Roberts or the Joint Chiefs of Staff—- but unless you do, who is going to? Just me and the chickens back home?
Everyone—-absolutely everyone on this planet needs to know the Truth. Everyone needs to take up their oar and open their mouth and run their printing presses. I don’t advise any blanket accusations or blaming. Just stick to the facts, which have been abundantly shared.
Along with all the written and verbal communication there is need for actual meetings with people— and international travel. We have had to send researchers and for lack of a better word, agents, abroad, both to meet with members of foreign corporations and governments and banks and so on and on.
Not all the non-Bar attorneys are involved in this part of the effort, but the Senior Team Members are and we have funded the whole thing ourselves out of pocket. So— you can see my private letter to Pope Francis and UN Secretary Ban Ki-Moon to get a taste of what is going on with all that and if you want to help fund these efforts, please flag donations as “Foreign Outreach”.

Finally, thank you, all of you, who are waking up and waking others. Thank you for your efforts and your researches and your prayers and your donations. Please understand that this is all coming to a boil and I am now over my head in work.

8-29-2016 11-35-05 AMAgain, thanks to OBAMA, he has or is giving away control of the Internet, and the one’s who might just take over control, are the United Nations.
Thats right, Our fearless cocksucker in chief has yet again fucked every American over.

When the Obama administration announced its plan to give up U.S.
protection of the internet, it promised the United Nations would never
take control. But because of the administration’s naiveté or arrogance,
U.N. control is the likely result if the U.S. gives up internet
stewardship as planned at midnight on Sept. 30.

Without the U.S. contract, ICAAN would seek to be overseen by another
governmental group so as to keep its antitrust exemption. Authoritarian
regimes have already proposed ICAAN become part of the U.N. to make it
easier for them to censor the internet globally. So much for the Obama
pledge that the U.S. would never be replaced by a “government-led or an
inter-governmental organization solution.”
The only thing worse than a monopoly overseen by the U.S. government is a
monopoly overseen by no one—or by a Web-censoring U.N. Congress still
has time to extend its ban on the Obama administration giving up
protection of the internet. ICAAN has given it every reason to do so.

THE UNMISTAKABLE RUMBLINGS OF AN AMERICA ABOUT TO POP

August 24th, 2016 by

http://www.newswithviews.com/Ewart/ron265.htm

By Ron Ewart

“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.” — John F. Kennedy

Put two people in a room and disagreement, at times, is a virtual certainty. Put 320,000,000 people in a nation and disagreement, sometimes violent, is a daily fact of life. Now add to the mix a heavy dose of multi-culturalism and the brew gets even more volatile. Then add 86,000,000 Americans being forced to pay for the livelihoods of 148,000,000 unproductive Americans and the brew becomes explosive. (Those 148,000,000 Americans think everything is just fine and they can vote to keep it that way.)

In that same nation, millions of illegal aliens are allowed to enter, almost unimpeded and encouraged by a liberal government. They get on the welfare rolls thus costing those 86,000,000 productive Americans billions of dollars in taxes for illegal-alien subsistence and millions of lost jobs, not to mention the drugs, rape, robbery and murder brought to America by the fairly large illegal-alien criminal element.

Let’s not forget the effects of radical environmentalism on the cost of goods and the loss of property rights, fueling rising distrust and anger in our rural communities all across America. We know a lot about that anger and discontent of rural landowners by the calls and e-mails we get every week from besieged landowners. We try to help them with the tools our organization (NARLO) provides, but it isn’t enough. The ability of the government, local, state, or federal, to harass and abuse landowners is greater than our ability to counter it. (See “Rural America In the Crosshairs”)

Add a Federal Reserve that is neither federal or a reserve and an exploding national debt to pay for over one hundred years of liberal, give-away policies, a debt that could lead to a devastating financial collapse and you have a recipe for not only anger and discontent, but the potential for rising violence.

Americans have had difficulty remaining united under any circumstances, except when it is threatened by a foreign enemy. But today, almost eight years of President Obama, it would seem the nation is coming apart at the seems. The great “Uniter” is in fact the great “Divider” and he has done so with malice afore thought to implement his twisted vision of America.

Obama’s Blacks think they are getting a raw deal and invented Black Lives Matter for non-existent injustices, with a giant boost from the nation’s wealthy liberals. They are stirring up trouble, chaos, violence and riots in every big city in America just for the Hell of it. Blacks voting in a block for Democrats is not because Blacks like liberal policies. It’s because they like the Democrats stealing from everyone else to give to the Blacks. It’s there form of reparations for past American sins.

Latinos are all upset because millions of legal Americans are finally saying enough is enough to illegal immigration, whether it is from Mexico, Central and South America, or the Middle East. The INS and ICE have lost control of the immigration process and are instead just throwing billions of our tax dollars at it, releasing tens of thousands of criminal aliens into the general population and failing to keep track of the millions of visas given out to foreigners.

The Indians are angry because of losing the war 150 years ago and are getting even with the White man by erecting casinos all over the place and confiscating land and water rights using ancient treaties, with the help of the government and radical environmentalists.

On top of that, radical Islam (ISIS and Al Qaeda) is threatening to annihilate our very way of life and our government, sworn to protect us from all enemies, foreign or domestic, is doing so little to crush the enemy that the enemy is free to come to America and kill Americans. Obama’s policies of appeasement and non-confrontation at any cost, are reaching out to bite us in a very big way, with the prospects of it only getting worse. Do you think twice now before going to the mall or the theater?

Then there are the laws. The America government, at every level, has passed so many laws against every human activity to the point that Americans have become lawbreakers every day of their lives, without knowing it …. that is until they get caught.

The wide-eyed, radical academic environmentalist Bill McKibben wants to give wartime powers to government against climate change, giving government the absolute power to do anything it deemed necessary, including confiscation of property, coercing businesses into supporting the effort, telling businesses what to do, when to do it and whom to hire, along with strict control over the economy. Bill has millions of groupies, academia and the news media on his side. But waging war, at any cost, including the loss of liberty, against a boogieman, backed up by unsettled or bad science, is the epitome of tyranny.

But worse, we have allowed growing secularity and worldly forces to rip out the cultural fabric of our Judeo-Christian heritage by allowing certain minorities rights that are in direct conflict with cultural norms and the natural order.

Our public schools and colleges have become institutions of liberal propaganda and indoctrination. Each generation learns less and less about America’s beginning and foundation of freedom. This is born out by millions of young Americans finding socialist Bernie Sanders a fitting presidential candidate. Then you have millions more Americans eager to put one of the most corrupt individuals in American politics, on the Clinton dynasty throne.

Soon the old ones will die off and their perspective of a free and prosperous America will be lost forever. With no heritage of liberty available from the seniors in our midst and no teachings of freedom in our schools, liberty will surely die.

We can’t imagine why proud, self-reliant, responsible Americans are so angry, frustrated and ready to do harm to someone or something. We can’t imagine why millions of those same Americans are listening to Donald Trump and liking what they hear. Or, can we?

Donald Trump, as flawed as he is, is channeling America’s anger, however imperfect his style and demeanor. For the millions of Americans that are sick and tired of business as usual and the institutional corruption, Donald Trump has given them a voice. But Trump is not a Superman that can leap tall buildings in a single bound. He cannot, with a wave of his extended hand, eradicate poverty, provide everyone with a job and kill our enemies. But most of all he cannot change the mindset of a “gimee!” national mentality that has become accustomed to sucking at the teat of mother government. Unfortunately, that “gimee!” mentality can vote to keep the “milk” flowing and they are in the majority.

But there is more to the problem than just an out-of-control government. We as individuals cannot just abdicate our responsibility to hold government accountable if we want to remain free. We cannot give a pass to our kids when they misbehave or act out. If we don’t set standards for them and demand they meet those standards, they end up derelicts on the street, criminals, or workers and businessmen without a moral compass …. or God forbid, Democrats.

John Scolinos, a famous baseball coach, gave a speech at a coach convention in Nashville, TN back in January of 1996. John stated that: “This is the problem in our homes today, with our marriages, with the way we parent our kid and with our lack of discipline. We don’t teach accountability to our kids, and there is no consequence for failing to meet standards. This is the problem in our schools today. The quality of our education is going downhill fast and teachers have been stripped of the tools they need to be successful, and to educate and discipline our young people.”

If our young people are not brought up with true knowledge, discipline, standards and moral underpinnings, they will be incapable of holding government accountable and will be easily manipulated by or become dependent on government.

We are running out of time. So just how long will self-reliant, independent, responsible Americans, worried about the loss of their freedoms and the collapse of the Republic, put up with:

The government erecting a multitude of new offices, and sending hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

The government has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving its assent to their acts of pretended legislation:

For imposing huges taxes on us without our consent to pay for the unconstitutional promises they have made to millions of our citizens for their votes.

For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments:

In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury.
We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us.

We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred. to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

Millions of Americans have not seen this language before, or know the vital importance of its words, because they have no knowledge of how America came into being and the fundamentals of liberty contained in its beginning documents. They are truly freedom ignorant. How can they defend or care about what they don’t know?

The first reaction to tyranny is resistance. The final reaction to tyranny is revolution. We are in the first stages in the reaction to tyranny and we strongly urge Americans to resist wherever they can before the second stage becomes unavoidable? All it takes is a flash point and the whole experiment with freedom could begin to unravel overnight, if it hasn’t already.

But then how can we peacefully stop a tyrannical government and the mob mentality it created, if we don’t have the votes? Short of revolution, there is only open and defiant resistance.

Ladies and gentlemen, the colonials broke with England in revolution for far less than what the American government has heaped upon its citizens in the quest for power, lust, greed and control over the masses. If government continues this abuse and usurpations upon its citizens, eventually they will make “peaceful revolution impossible and make violent revolution inevitable.”

America is about to boil over, especially if Hillary Clinton is elected President. That 86,000,000 minority that is paying for everything, the rich and middle class alike, may just decide to stop paying. Some of the wealthiest among us already have. If that 86,000,000 minority wants to be free from the yoke of liberal servitude they had better start resisting and they better start now because their vote means nothing against the liberal mob.

When the checks don’t show up at the welfare or unemployment office, or there is no food at the local Albertson’s store, we guarantee you there will be riots, mayhem and burnings in the street in every city in America. That leads to insurrection and civil war. In such an event, what is to stop the government from declaring martial law and suspending the constitution and all of the rights it promises? Absolutely nothing! Abraham Lincoln and Congress suspended Habeas Corpus during the Civil War. It’s only a small step to suspend the whole constitution, or to confiscate all your money you have in the bank, or in your retirement accounts.

The fate of America, freedom or tyranny, is in the hands of its people that is if the people have even the slightest concept of what freedom means or place any value on it. We’re not convinced they do because of several generations of Progressive and one-world-government brainwashing.

As always Ron hits the nail on the head again, and those who do not prepare will perish in the holocaust to follow. If you love your life, you will lose it is one passage from the bible I have never forgotten, and maybe that time has come for the majority, because they are certainly in love with their life. As for me and my house we will die fighting for the love of freedom, not worldly possessions, or fear.

Entering Perfect Storm of Every Facet of our Lives

August 15th, 2016 by

Bill Holter & Greg Hunter

http://beforeitsnews.com/economy/2016/08/entering-perfect-storm-of-every-facet-of-our-lives-bill-holter-greg-hunter-video-2846477.html

8-14-2016 10-01-24 AM

By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com

WATCH https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfhA2_xWzT8

Financial writer Bill Holter warns the world faces multiple problems, not just one. Holter explains, “We are entering a perfect storm of every facet of our lives.  This is not just financial.  This is social, and it has to do with the breakdown of the rule of law.  In the U.S. and globally, you can look at this as a breakdown of morals.  Society is breaking down.  You’ve got false economic numbers supported by the press that’s telling the people that all is well.  You are seeing, for lack of a better term, revolt all over the world.  Brexit was a revolt.  Donald Trump running for President is a revolt.  You are seeing people get truly pissed off because they know something is wrong, and it’s a worldwide phenomenon.”

So, is the world headed for a “Mad Max” future? Holter says, “I think the chances are better than a coin flip that we have societal breakdown.  If you are asking should you hold cash, my opinion is yeah, you should have some cash and very little bank balances because that is going to go away.  You are going to have to have some physical cash, which will actually . . . after the system shuts down, become more valuable.  The dollar will purchase more real goods for several weeks simply because if all the banks are closed and nobody has cash, then cash is scarce.  That will work up until, all of a sudden, the light switch gets flipped and people understand that cash has no real value.  People are not going to trade real eggs or real tomatoes for dollars.  They will say I want something real for something real.  That’s where your dollar collapses.”

A possible trigger comes in late September, according to Holter. Holter contends, “There is an IMF meeting.  I believe you are going to see the Yuan become a fully functioning part of the SDR (IMF currency).  That’s a big step backward for the dollar. . . . Whatever portion the Yuan takes, whatever slice of the pie the yean takes, the other currencies lose.  I think predominantly it will come from the dollar.”

On gold, the math is simple. Holter says, “The punch line to this is the system has never been risker and more leveraged than it is today.  Yet, the price or the cost of insurance (gold and silver) has never been cheaper than it is today with the exception of late last year in October, November and December of 2015.”

Holter goes on to point out, “They have purposely diluted the price of gold in order to portray a strong dollar. . . The reason they need to portray a strong dollar is to continue confidence in the system. It allows dollars to continue to be accepted.  It also allows the U.S. Treasury to turn around and continue to borrow.  That’s not working so well because the Federal Reserve has had to step up and buy major portions of auctions.”

How does it end? Holter says, “I have said many times that we are going to have a reset of the system.  All currencies, all bonds, all interest rates, stocks, commodities, gold, silver, etcetera.  This is a very, very dangerous time.”

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

If the world does not wake up to the atrocities of the Banking Cartel, and demand their heads on a spike, the whole damn world is going to turn upside down. Never in the minds of normal people have they conceived of tyranny on the level we are facing, Imagine billions of people starving to death, eating their neighbors and their children. Such is to come shortly if we do not put an end to these government controlling tyrants. There should not be any forgiveness of governments either, for they could have protected the people from these monsters just by saying no. They knew what would happen if they let the Bankers rule the world’s economy. They want the whole earth as their own playground. Below is a story of one of their best pets.

Uncle Remus Rodham

 Truth or fiction, it’s a heck of a story.

8-14-2016 10-22-55 AM

Judy Wallman, a professional genealogical researcher, discovered that Hillary Clinton’s great-great uncle, Remus Rodham, was hanged for horse stealing and train robbery in Montana in 1889. The only other known photograph of Remus shows him standing on the gallows. On the back of the picture is this inscription: ‘Remus Rodham; horse thief,  was sent to Montana Territorial Prison 1885, escaped 1887, robbed the Montana Flyer six times. Caught by Pinkerton detectives, convicted and hanged in 1889.’

Judy e-mailed Hillary Clinton for comments. Hillary’s staff of professional image adjusters (read that ‘liars’) sent back the following biographical sketch: 
‘Remus Rodham was a famous cowboy in the Montana Territory. His business empire grew to include acquisition of valuable equestrian assets and intimate dealings with the Montana railroad. Beginning in 1883, he devoted several years of his life to service at a government facility,  finally taking leave to resume his dealings with the railroad. In 1887, he was a key player in a vital investigation run by the renowned Pinkerton Detective Agency.  In 1889, Remus passed away during an important civic function held in his honor  when the platform upon which he was standing collapsed.

And THAT is how ‘SPIN ‘ is done, folks!]

THE MYTH OF GOVERNMENT

August 11th, 2016 by

https://steemit.com/government/@borisheir/the-myth-of-government

by borisheir

Overview

What I have to say today is not news. Most of it has been said before – by prehistoric philosophers, and more recently by Lysander Spooner, Benedict de Spinoza, Henry David Thoreau, Frederique Bastiat, John David Garcia, Robert McGee, Larken Rose, and many others. Perhaps the greatest tragedy of human history is the fact that the writings of these thinkers has yet to permeate and inform the awareness of the general public. It is for this purpose that I add my voice to the list, in hopes that I can further simplify the core message contained in what might be called the philosophy of government, so that everyone with even half a brain can understand it and apply it to their own lives.

In the same sense in which Isaac Newton’s Laws of Motion can be thought of as “classical”, the ideas that I share in this writing are likewise “classical”. Newton didn’t have adequate observational instruments to anticipate the development of Special Relativity or Quantum Mechanics – so he couldn’t even attempt to describe the physics of very fast moving objects or very small objects. In his time, the laws of motion that he accurately described mathematically were totally adequate for theworld he was able to observe.

In similar fashion, I’m limiting my discussion to the practical and the obvious, and beg the forbearance of the deep thinkers who recognize that my logic is incomplete. Were I to attempt a deeper analysis of government, I’d be writing a book rather than an article – and it would be a very long book indeed.

To whet your appetite for what follows, here are a few conclusions that will be explained in what follows:

  • Government only exists in the mind. It has no factual existence whatever. It is accurate to describe it as a hallucination hypnotically implanted in your mind by those who would control you in order to plunder your wealth and render you subservient.
  • Everything else you believe about government is a lie.

◦ It is neither of, by, nor for “the people”.
◦ It is not a “necessary evil”. It’s just evil.
◦ The only obligation you have to obey government is that which you impose upon yourself.◦ Taxation is a form of slavery…literally.
◦ The concept of a tacit “social contract” was invented for the sole purpose of manipulating and plundering you.
◦ The purpose of police agencies isn’t to “serve and protect” you – it is to rob and control you.
◦ Government “gives away” nothing that it hasn’t stolen from you and others like you.
◦ There is nothing that government “provides” that could not better be
provided without government. And furthermore:

  • You have an absolute moral “right” to defend yourself against government – including the right to:

◦ Refuse to vote,
◦ Ignore laws forbidding victimless “crimes”,
◦ Evade taxes of every kind,
◦ Engage in ethical private contracts,
◦ Communicate using strong encryption,
◦ Travel freely anywhere on the planet,
◦ Sell your services without obtaining licenses or permits,
◦ Homestead unused land,
◦ Perform any ethical act without anyone’s permission, permits, or licenses,
◦ Do anything you wish to your own body – including taking drugs, aborting a fetus, or committing suicide,
◦ Inform potential jurors of their legal right to nullify unjust laws,
◦ Own weaponry equal to that used by law enforcers – including machine
guns, grenades, and rocket launchers, and finally:

  • Once you understand that there is no “crime” so trivial that law enforcers will not kill to enforce it, it becomes evident that you can be murdered by them for jay-walking, holding a cell phone, walking your dog, taking pictures, selling a cigarette, having your hands in your pockets, taking a shower, walking under the influence of colored skin, driving with a broken taillight, or just crossing their path. This is just a small sample of actions for which people have actually been killed by our most violent criminal class.

Police have often claimed, in recent years, that the public is at war with the police. If this were actually true, we’d all be better off; but in fact it is not true. There is no war on police. The assertion is a classical “projection” – attributing to others an attitude actually held by the person making the assertion. The cops are emphatically not the victims. They are in fact the terrorists of whom we’ve all been warned – for it is the government that makes war on the rest of us.

A Few Pertinent Facts

  • In parts of South and Central America, there have been instances in which ordinary folks have observed local cops beating up people who have been guilty only of “contempt of cop”. Not infrequently when this happens, the witnesses band together and kill the offending cop. Then they hike down to the local police station, kill the cops they find there, and burn the building to the ground. Now that’s making war on cops who abuse their “authority”. If people in this country made war on cops, it would probably only last for a day or two…and then there would be no more cops.
  • It is an established fact that all of the ordinary criminals in this country, the muggers, burglars, robbers, etc., have collectively stolen less money from the public than the cops have stolen under the legal umbrella of “civil asset forfeiture”. But even this phenomenon pales in comparison with the resources stolen from us by the courts, the politicians, and the ultra-wealthy who own the whole system –including the politicians. Their plunder of the public can only be measured in trillions of dollars annually.
  • It is also a well documented fact that in the last century governments around the world have slaughtered almost 300,000,000 of their own citizens – a number that doesn’t even count the ones killed in wars by the minions of foreign governments.
  • Seen objectively, law enforcement agencies at all levels of government are criminal gangs. The men in black dresses who preside over courtrooms are their low-level managers. The suited nobility who call themselves politicians or legislators are the mid-level managers. And the owners of the central banks, like the Federal Reserve, are the modern-day royal families who claim to own the whole system.
  • It is a valid principle of ethics that the individual most responsible for an act (a crime for example) is the one who had the last opportunity to prevent the act. In fact, Buffy Sainte Marie pointed this out back in the sixties, when she wrote, “The Universal Soldier”, a song exhorting soldiers worldwide to stop pulling triggers.

From this it follows that it isn’t the royalty who are most responsible. It’s the low-life servants who pull the triggers, apply the handcuffs, pilot the drones, wield the clubs, or otherwise enact the actual violence who are the biggest villains today. And they wouldn’t engage in those acts if doing so was really dangerous to themselves. They are inherently cowardly, and would stop in a heartbeat if they seriously thought they wouldn’t make it home or live to get their next paycheck.

What if…….?

The following scenario could be the basis of a work of fiction…because, realistic or not, it is totally plausible.

  • In the course of 2016 a worldwide network of small ethical cells is formed for the purpose of defending the public against the violent atrocities of governments everywhere. The members of this network agree that at midnight on December the 31st the current violent dominance by government will end on a basis of ethical self defense.
  • A few wealthy entrepreneurs, who recognize the opportunities and advantages to be gained thereby, fund a massive PR effort that takes many forms, not the least of which is the distribution of millions of free books, like “Freedom”,

“The Most Dangerous Superstition”, “Justifiable Homicide”,
“FLOURISH!”, “Swarmwise”, and the works of Lysander Spooner, Murray Rothbard, Frederique Bastiat, H.D. Thoreau, and John David Garcia.

  • Over the course of the year, the culprits, whose depredations are to be stopped, are personally identified and located…their daily habits mapped…and their vulnerabilities assessed.
  • On the 4 th of July (or another suitable date) all of the targeted culprits are notified that they must stop their depredations voluntarily or they will be stopped involuntarily.
  • At the same time every individual involved in collecting taxes is told to stop. IRS agents, every license bureau, every property tax collector, every retail clerk who charges sales taxes is warned.
  • The network also creates organizations that will provide the public with all of the essential services over which governments have traditionally held a monopoly, and offers them to the public at rates that cost less than the taxes that the public has been paying and without penalties for opting out.
  • On the date agreed (April the 15 th , 2017?), all of the activists, self-defenders, and ethical warriors take action – everywhere, at the same time. The forces of evil are destroyed and the plundering stops.
  • And finally, when the defending forces are no longer needed, everyone goes home. This story does not end with the formation of a new government.

Instead it ends with an ethical system of self-governance that yields peace, prosperity, and freedom for all. (see https://www.titanians.org/ethics-law-government – automatic!)

In Conclusion

The story outline above is obviously incomplete. There are vast numbers of details and decision-points to be filled in. These are left as “an exercise for the student”. It is ultimately up to you, the reader, to actually write the story. I believe in you. Go for it!

THE BATTERED STATE SYNDROME

August 9th, 2016 by

http://www.rebelmadman.com/?p=497

3-27-2016 1-48-28 PM

Olddog says, this is Mike’s Masterpiece

By Michael Gaddy

Any semi-conscious individual with a modicum of intelligence would advise anyone caught up in an abusive relationship of any kind to sever all ties to the opprobrious partner. Yet, almost to a person, these same people would readily inform you that secession by a state is unlawful and should be met with the appropriate force and violence to prohibit such an irresponsible act on the part of a state and its sovereign people, regardless of the proclaimed reasons for the separation.

One of the most critical subjects which our founders faced both in the Philadelphia Convention of 1787 and the subsequent state ratification conventions was where did sovereignty reside, was it with the people, the states or the newly proposed government? In the vernacular of today, who would be the boss of whom?

It is of significant import that one view the wording of the Treaty of Paris when discussing this topic. In Article 1, the United States was acknowledged to be 13 “free, sovereign and independent states.”

But, where does the “ultimate sovereignty” sit in residence? Is it with the federal government, the state governments or with the people? Most of the colonists understood the belief in Great Britain, prevalent since 1640, that the ultimate sovereignty resided in Parliament. This concept is confirmed in the words of Sir William Blackstone in his description of Parliament, “the place where that absolute despotic power which in all governments reside somewhere, is intrusted by the constitutions of these kingdoms. The power and jurisdiction of Parliament” was so “transcendent and absolute that it cannot be confined… True it is that what Parliament doth, no authority upon Earth can undo.” Using this same paradigm, the majority of people in this country today, especially cops and judges, believe that our central government has the ultimate sovereignty, that nothing can undo its will and often point to Article VI Section II of our Constitution (Supremacy Clause) as the basis for confirmation of their beliefs. But to believe thusly is to completely dismiss a crucial element in why the colonists fought an eight-year war in order to gain their independence from such a Parliament.

We also have those who believe that true sovereignty, in some cases ultimate sovereignty, lies with the states.  To believe that ultimate sovereignty lies with either the central or state governments is to discount the very concept and purpose of our Declaration of Independence.

Our basic organic document, The Declaration of Independence, is a document of secession, the proof of which can be found in its words and phrases. “dissolve the political bands, … assume among the powers of the earth, declare the causes which impel them to the separation … it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it and institute new government … it is their right, it is their duty to throw off such Government and to provide new Guards for their future security … that all political connection between them is and ought to be totally dissolved.” 

To refuse to accept the Declaration of Independence as an article of secession is to call attention to one’s own ignorance. The demanded separation contained in our Declaration is a complete refutation of any government being the ultimate sovereign over the people.

Our founders, including those on both sides of the Federalist/Antifederalist divide, wrote and spoke often of the ultimate sovereignty of the individual. James Wilson of Pennsylvania was a delegate to the Philadelphia Convention of 1787 as well as a delegate to the Ratification Convention of his state. It was during that ratification debate James Wilson stated the following as to the forms of government that might be created.

“The United States may adopt any one of four different systems. They may become consolidated into one [National] government, in which the separate existence of the states shall be entirely absorbed. They may reject any plan of union or association and act as separate and unconnected states. They may form two or more confederacies. They may unite in one federal republic. Which of these systems ought to have been formed by the Convention? To support, with vigor, a single government over the whole extent of the United States would demand a system of the most unqualified and the most unremitted despotism.” (All emphasis mine)

Patrick Henry also addressed the issue of a consolidated government during the Virginia Ratification Convention when on June 5, 1788, Henry rose to speak and said this about the new proposed government.

“Here is a revolution as radical as that which separated us from Great Britain. It is radical in this transition; our rights and privileges are endangered, and the sovereignty of the states will be relinquished: And cannot we plainly see that this is actually the case?”

Thomas Jefferson and James Madison both stated the actual meaning of the Constitution was to be found in the debates at the various state ratification conventions. Reading through these debates one will find the descriptions and meanings of the proposed constitution are very well stated by those who advocated for ratification and were “selling” the constitution (Federalists) to those who had questions (Anti-federalists) or those who opposed ratification outright. The Federalists were most clear; the government would not be a national government, the powers “delegated” to the government would be few and limited; the states would at the very least have an equal say in the actions of the government. I list below just a sampling of what form of government was promised to the states and to the people.

“It is the opinion of the greatest writers, that a very extensive country cannot be governed on democratical principles, on any other plan than a confederation of a number of small republics, possessing all the powers of internal government but united in the management of their foreign and general concerns. It would not be difficult to prove, that anything short of despotism could not bind so great a country under one government; and under whatever plan you might, at first setting out, establish, it would issue in a despotism.” ~ George Bryan of Pennsylvania

In this one simple paragraph, George Bryan describes not only what was happening at the time of the ratification conventions but also perfectly describes how unconstitutional and tyrannical our government has become since its creation. Mr. Bryan mentions first “a very extensive country.” Please remember that at that time our “country” only contained the 13 original colonies. Then there is the mention of “democratical principles’ which is a reference to a democratic form of government which if you asked the common person on the street what form of government we have today, the majority would answer “a democracy.” If 13 colonies or states would be too large for a democracy, what makes anyone believe a democracy would work for 50 states? (57 if you believe our current chief magistrate)

Mr. Bryan then spoke to the proposition that all smaller parts of this confederacy (the states) would possess all the powers of “internal government.” Is that true today? Absolutely not! Bryan then states “nothing short of despotism” would issue from the implementation of any other form of government other than what the people were guaranteed would be created with the ratification of the constitution.

“Any law … of the United States, for securing to Congress more than a concurrent right with each state is usurpation and void.” ~ Theophilus Parsons, Massachusetts, 1788

“Any law,” says Mr. Parsons, is void if passed by Congress and does not provide a “concurrent right” to the states. I would begin to cite for you the hundreds of laws that should be void and unenforceable, but time and logistics of such a listing prohibit such.

“If the gentleman will attend, he will see this is a government for confederated states; that, consequently, it can not meddle where no power is given.” ~ Archibald Maclaine, North Carolina, 1788

Mr. Mcclaine states very clearly that the government cannot meddle where no power is given. Again, time and space do not permit an accurate listing of all of the laws passed by Congress that “meddle” where no such power was ever delegated by the states and the people to the central government. Of, course any such list would include the Affordable Care Act and the many variations of the Patriot Act.

“The State governments can put a veto, at any time, on the general government, by ceasing to continue the executive power.” ~ William Richardson Davie, North Carolina, 1788

Is what Mr. Davie so clearly stated in 1788 true today? If, not our government has been perverted, stolen and used to enslave us all. Are we any more subjects than were our founders in 1775 and who declared their grievances and separation in our most famous of founding documents?

John Adams predicted what would occur should the tenets and principles of what the people of their respective states were promised if these principles were violated and usurped by the central government.

“It is not even said in our Constitution that the People shall be guarranteed in a Free Republican Government. The Word is So loose and indeffinite that Successive Predominant Factions will put Glosses and Constructions upon it as different as light and darkness, and if ever there should be a Civil War which Heaven forbid, the conquering General in all his Tryumphs may establish a Military Despotism and yet call it a constitutional Republic as Napoleon has already Set him the Example. The only Effect of it that I could ever See, is to deceive the People: and this practice my heart abhors, my head disapproves, and my Tongue and my Pen have ever avoided.” (Spelling and capitalization in the original)

John Adams was most knowledgeable of history and he correctly predicted usurpations on the part of the government which included the assumption of powers the states and the people were guaranteed would never occur would eventually lead to a “civil war.” Adams also predicted a triumph in such a “civil war” by military forces of the central government would lead to a military despotism such as that of Napoleon. He also correctly predicted that such a government would continue to call itself a “constitutional republic.” This is precisely why the Pledge of Allegiance, written by an avowed socialist, is embraced by those who support a continuation of the Napoleonic constitutional republic mentioned by John Adams.

The type and form of government promised to the people and the states in their ratification conventions ceased to exist well before the election of Abraham Lincoln and the assumption of power by the so-called Radical Republicans. The election of Lincoln simply brought all of the simmering resentments to a full boil in 1860. With the assumption of power by the Lincolnites, the government promised 72 years prior to the people and the states had ceased to exist.

The people from Virginia who ratified the Constitution by a very slim margin in 1788, were still very suspicious of the intentions of those who would be assuming the mantle of power and possible future usurpations of the powers of the individual states by an overreaching central government. To this end, they placed the following in their ratification agreement.

“Do in the name and in behalf of the People of Virginia declare and make known that the powers granted under the Constitution being derived from the People of the United States may be resumed by them whensoever the same shall be perverted to their injury or oppression and that every power not granted thereby remains with them and at their will …” 

Here, in plain and simple words is established the authority of the states and the people to withdraw from a government of their own creation “whensoever that government shall be perverted to their injury or oppression.” The wording also clearly indicates the people of the states are the ones to determine when that injury and oppression has occurred; not the Congress of that government, the executive of that government or the judicial element of that government.

The original ratification documents were presented and discussed during the first Convention of Secession in Virginia in which the people of Virginia, acting the same as those who had ratified the Constitution in 1788, at first voted to remain in the Union. It was the actions of Abraham Lincoln and his radical republicans who forced the acts of secession on Virginia, Arkansas, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Missouri.

The states who seceded, did so in an effort to recapture and retain the form of government promised to them 72 years prior. Yet, Lincoln chose to deal with a constitutional issue, not with the courts, mediation or reconciliation, but through the use of force and coercion, both of which comprise the very essence of tyranny.

The only path left to those who wish to oppose the overreach of government enforced tyranny is first nullification, as well outlined in Jefferson’s Kentucky Resolution, and should that fail, a full and complete withdrawal from the forces of tyranny: Secession.

Regardless of who is elected in November, the tyranny and oppression will continue to increase. Such is the natural course of history, for the form of government promised at the ratification conventions totally ceased to exist under the fusillade of bullets, bayonets, and cannons, delivered courtesy of Abraham Lincoln to the people of at least 12 states who only wanted the form of government their ancestors had been promised in 1787-1788.

Delaware Senator James Bayard III stated on the floor of the US Senate in 1861,

” … to warn gentlemen that the system of government adopted in 1787 is inconsistent with the prosecution of war for the subjection of the South: and yet you cannot execute the laws as you claim to do within the Confederate States without their entire conquest and subjugation. You must, if successful, convert, and it has been threatened by many leading papers, and at least one leading member of the administration, that you will convert this government into a single government, and absolve all the state lines. In answer to such a purpose, and as an all-sufficient objection to it, I give you the general truth enunciated by Mr. Wilson, that a government of that kind, to exist over the extent of the this country must be a system of the most unqualified and unremitting despotism.”

The government employees, media shills and useful idiots in academia and the common street idiot, all of whom would guarantee the right of an individual to escape an abusive relationship, would deny the same to the states and its citizens. The government that was promised to our ancestors has long since ceased to exist—-Nullification and Secession are our only options.

Given the power and ability to do so, I would corral every born in America person in groups and not let them leave their chairs until they totally understood the significance of Mike’s words, whether they crapped on them selves or starved to death matters not to me. They could die in their chair or become a real American ready to die a horrible death before allowing this damnable government to continue.

EVERYTHING IS RIGGED:

August 3rd, 2016 by

http://www.naturalnews.com/054857_rigged_elections_fake_media_fairy_tales.html#

8-3-2016 9-58-37 AM

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger

NaturalNews) After witnessing how Reuters just blatantly cooked the presidential election polls this week to favor Clinton and how the mainstream media is so terrifyingly biased in favor of Clinton that the very foundation of democracy is now in crisis, it’s time to tell you something that perhaps a lot more people are finally ready to hear:

EVERYTHING IS RIGGED.

Every institution in America is sold out, corrupted and politically rigged to favor Big Government and Big Business. “America is a lost country,” explains Paul Craig Roberts. “The total corruption of every public and the private institution is complete. Nothing remains but tyranny. And lies. Endless lies.”

CNN, Reuters and the Associated Press are all now shameless promoters of every big lie across every sector of society, from vaccines and GMOs to elections and politics. The federal government itself is incapable of doing anything other than lying, and it has totally corrupted the entire realm of science by pulling the strings of funding via the National Institutes of Health and the NSF.

The FDA is entirely corrupt, as is the USDA. Both function now as little more than marketing propaganda pushers for Big Pharma and Big Biotech. Similarly, Google, Facebook and Twitter are all rigged, too, censoring the voices they don’t want anyone to hear while highlighting the establishment lies they wish to promote.

Here’s what “rigged” really means… the tools of tyranny

8-2-2016 5-58-57 PM

When I say “everything is rigged,” what does that mean, exactly?

• All “official sources” are ordered to constantly lie about everything, weaving illusions to push a chosen narrative rooted in fiction (from “there are no Islamic terrorists” to “carbon dioxide is poison to the planet”).

• All voices of reason and sanity are silenced. Only the most insane, irrational voices are allowed to be magnified through any media (including social media). This is also true across the sciences, where real science has been all but snuffed out by political agendas (biosludge, GMOs, glyphosate, mercury in dentistry, etc.).

• All facts are obliterated by propaganda. Facts have no place in any debate, and those who invoke facts are shamed and silenced (or even fired from their jobs, expelled from their schools or bullied into a state of suicide on social media). Anyone who invokes facts on things like the actual statistics of police shootings is told they are “part of the problem” because they have the “wrong attitude” about social justice.

• Every branch of government is weaponized against the people and used as an assault tool against political enemies who threaten the status quo. (IRS, FDA, FTC, DEA, EPA, USDA, etc.)

• All science is distorted into absurd, politically-motivated conclusions about everything the government wants to use to control the masses: Vaccines, climate change, GMOs, fluoride, flu shots, chemical agriculture, carbon dioxide and so on.

• Every branch of medicine is hijacked by globalist agendas to make sure medicine never makes anyone healthier, more alert or more cognitively capable of thinking for themselves.

• Every “news item” that’s reported from any official source is deliberately distorted to the point of insanity, turning many facts on their heads while attacking anyone who might offer something truly constructive to the world. (Such as reporting that Clinton was “cleared” by the FBI when, in fact, she was indicted by the very facts the FBI presented!)

• All voices of truth are silenced, then replaced by meaningless, distracting babble (Kardashians) or meaningless, tribal sports competitions (the Rio Olympics). The point is to dumb down the entire population to the point of cultural lunacy.

• Any true reports that contradict any official narrative are immediately censored. For example, radio host Michael Savage just got blocked by Facebook for posting a true story about an illegal alien who committed murder in America.

• Emotions are used as weapons to manipulate the masses. For example, when the mom of a Benghazi victim shares her grief with the world, she is ridiculed and shamed. But when a radical Muslim father who’s trying to bring Sharia Law to America attacks Trump by expressing his loss of his soldier son, the media turns him into an instant celebrity, praising his “courageous voice” for daring to speak out. The media hypocrisy is enough to make you vomit…

What exactly is rigged?

  • The entire mainstream media
    • Google search engine and Google News
    • Facebook and Twitter
    • The DNC and the RNC (both 100% rigged by globalists)
    • Every federal agency (EPA, FDA, etc.)
    • The entire justice system (makes a total farce of real justice)
    • Interest rates and the value of the money supply (central banksters)
    • Academia (all public universities)
    • EPA’s “safe” limits on pesticides (all rigged by Big Biotech)
    • Food and food labeling (all run by corrupt food companies)
    • Public education (rigged into Common Core anti-knowledge idiocy)
    • Banking and finance (all controlled by globalists)
    • Government economics figures and statistics
    • Medicine and pharmaceuticals (rigged to maximize profits)
    • Big Science (totally rigged by government agenda pushers)
    • The music industry (most top singers can’t sing at all)
    • Weapons manufacturers and war corporations
    • The illegal drug trade (it’s run by the government)
    • Political elections (all 100% rigged at the federal level)
    • Political polls (now rigged by Reuters, too)
    • The health insurance industry (rigged by Obamacare)
    • College admissions (legally discriminates against Whites and Asians)
    • 9/11 and domestic terrorism (all rigged “official stories”)
    • Oil and energy industries
    • The rule of law (rigged in favor of the rich and powerful)
    • Infectious disease and the CDC (a constant stream of lies)
    • Hollywood (all run by globalists)
    • Climate change science (all a grand science hoax)
    • Press release services (they only allow official narratives)
    • History (what you are taught is mostly a lie)
    • Government grants (only given out to those who further the agenda)
    • Government bids (only awarded to those who kick back funds to corrupt officials)
    • Consciousness and free will (we are all taught consciousness doesn’t exist)
    • Ethnobotany (medicinal and spiritual use of healing plants)
    • Life on other plants (the obvious truth is kept from us all)
    • The origin of the universe (the official narrative is a laughable fairy tale) As a fantastic example of how everything is rigged, consider these paragraphs from this Breitbart.com news story published today:

    Over the weekend and for the past few days since Khan spoke alongside his wife Ghazala Khan about their son, U.S. Army Captain Humayun Khan, who was killed in Iraq in 2004, media-wide reporters, editors, producers, and anchors have tried to lay criticism on Trump over the matter. They thought they had a good one, a specific line of attack that pitted Trump against the military—and supposedly showed him as a big meanie racist in the process.

    But, as Breitbart News showed on Monday midday, that clearly was not the case. Khizr Khan has all sorts of financial, legal, and political connections to the Clintons through his old law firm, the mega-D.C. firm Hogan Lovells LLP. That firm did Hillary Clinton’s taxes for years, starting when Khan still worked there involved in, according to his own website, matters “firm wide”—back in 2004. It also has represented, for years, the government of Saudi Arabia in the United States. Saudi Arabia, of course, is a Clinton Foundation donor which—along with the mega-bundlers of thousands upon thousands in political donations to both of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2016—plays right into the “Clinton Cash” narrative.

America‘s transformation into Communist China is nearly complete

If you’re pondering where all this is headed, look no further than Communist China, where all independent news has been outlawed by the state. Political prisoners across China have their organs harvested to enrich black market organ traders, and nearly one out of every three urban citizens is a secret spy who snitches on friends for the totalitarian communist government.

Hillary Clinton is the embodiment of Communist Chinese totalitarianism. She’s such a perfect fit for their disastrous model of human rights abuses, government corruption and systemic criminality that I’m surprised she doesn’t live in Beijing. If Clinton gets elected, America is gone forever, replaced by a criminal regime of totalitarians who violate the RICO Act as a matter of policy.

If this entire rigged system of biased media, Facebook censorship, Google search result manipulations and twisted science ends up putting America’s most terrifying political criminal into the White House, it’s lights out for the American we once knew. Almost immediately, the nation fractures into near Civil War, with calls for secession growing unstoppable as state after state seeks to escape the political wrath of an insane regime of D.C. criminals and tyrants. 

We now live in two Americas: Half the country is tired of everything being rigged, and the other half can’t wait to be exploited by yet another crooked leftist LIAR who rigs everything

America is now essentially two nations. On one hand, we have the pro-Trump America, filled with people who are tired of being cheated, censored, punished, stolen from and lied to about everything under the sun. Donald Trump supporters are people who realize everything is rigged… and they’re demanding an end to the corruption and criminality of the fascist system under which we all suffer today.

Hillary Clinton supporters are people who are too busy chasing political rainbows to realize everything is rigged. They still believe the lies and the propaganda (the “hope and change” that never came, but is still promised by empty politicians). They’re living in fairy tale delusional worlds that have been woven into their gullible minds by the skillful social engineers of the radical left. These people still think the government cares about them… or that CNN only reports truthful news. They can’t wait to see another globalist in the White House because they are pathetic, weak-minded empty shells of non-consciousness who are wholly incapable of thinking for themselves.

These two camps of Americans can no longer coexist. They have almost nothing in common when it comes to knowledge, wisdom, ethics, morals or philosophy. One camp believes in the rule of law (Trump); the other camp believes that people in power should be above the law (Clinton). One camp believes in states’ rights and individual liberty (Trump) while the other camp believes in the consolidation of totalitarian power in the hands of a centralized, domineering government (Clinton). One camp believes in a level playing field, free market competition and rewarding innovation and hard work (Trump), while the other camp believes in free handouts, government “equality” mandates, and the ludicrous idea that “there should be no winners or losers in society.” (Clinton)

In other to try to win this election, the Clinton camp has already rigged EVERYTHING from the very start, including the coronation of Hillary, the scheduling of televised debates to minimize their viewership, the surrender of Bernie Sanders to the DNC machine, the mass organization of illegal voting schemes to make sure illegal aliens vote in November, and so much more. No doubt they’re also working extremely hard to rig the black box voting machines all across the country.

If you’re tired of everything being rigged, this November vote against the rigged system by voting for Donald Trump. This is truly your last chance to save America from being overthrown by a totalitarian regime of criminals who will crush every last iota of freedom and liberty in America.

They Stole Our Names – And Now They’ve Lost Them.

What I am going to tell you all today is going to blow your minds— if they aren’t staggered already. 

First, the rats under FDR pretended that our Trade Names, the Upper and Lower Case names we were taught to use in grade school styled like this:  Felix Morton Morganthau —- were actually Foreign Situs Trusts belonging to the “Federal Government” doing business as the United States of America (Inc.) and represented franchises of that bankrupt private, mostly foreign owned governmental services corporation. 

So, those entrusted to act as public servants instead acted as public hogs and placed false claims against the American nation-states and the American People.  And our parents and grandparents were so trusting they didn’t catch on. 

Year after year, they toiled away, paying debts for crooks—-debts they never owed. They didn’t even get a thank you for it.  The perpetrators snuck off with their buddies in the Beltway and snickered to themselves and patted themselves on the back and sucked up and siphoned off the wealth of America while sending our young men and women off to war for profits—and not even profits for themselves, but profits for the perpetrators of these abuses. 

So they stole our names and bankrupted them and now, they’ve lost all record of them.  

You have to go back to court and do an adult name change from FELIX MORTON MORGANTHAU back to Felix Morton Morganthau. 

Even worse, they’ve done the same thing with the States.  

Where does this bunko stop?  Where in the name of Jesus does it end?  

You have to adopt your own given Name and then you have to seize upon and reconvey the bogus franchise trust NAMES, too.  And Expatriate them.  And bring suit against the rats in the proper venue.  

And you have to do this to save yourselves and your country.  

Do you hate this situation yet?  Do you feel betrayed yet?  

You’ve been subjected to the greatest fraud and identity theft in human history and the people you have relied upon to protect you and your interests and paid well to do so—- are the ones that have done this to you and yours.  

If you aren’t righteously angry enough to get up off your couch and start talking and walking, too, then I don’t know what I can say to you.

Psychologists Explain Why People Refuse to Question the Official Version of 9/11

July 30th, 2016 by

http://www.wakingtimes.com/2016/06/30/psychologists-explain-people-refuse-question-the-official-version-911/

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

If you think 9/11 is hard to accept for the dissonance crowd, try convincing them the entire government corporate system is a sham. Every thing we have been taught since childhood is a damn lie. School teachers are the dumbest assholes in America!!!!! AND, the media industry are a bunch of LIARS extraordinaire. The Pastors of our Churches have been whipped into line by the IRS. OUR medical and Medicine Industries are the scum of the earth. They all are under the  Central Banking Cartels thumb. AND TOO STUPID TO SEE IT!!!

7-30-2016 10-55-35 AM

September 11th is the most polarizing event in modern world history. After looking at the aggregate of the accumulated facts and analysis that has emerged since the day itself in 2001, many people find it impossible to believe the official version of events, and since no serious government investigation is considering new evidence or professional analysis, people are left to decide for themselves if there is more to the story.

Due to the sheer volume of information that defies the government’s explanation of events, to believe the official story it now requires some sort of trick of the mind, or some sort of subconscious unwillingness to even entertain a contrary possibility. Regarding 9/11 truth, people will say the most absurdly illogical things, such as:

“I wouldn’t believe what you’re telling me, even if it were true.”
“I don’t need to look at the evidence.”
“I don’t want to know the truth, or I’d become too negative.”
“If that were true, someone would have leaked it by now.”
“That’s ridiculous, there is no way our government would harm us.”
“What makes you think we even deserve to know the truth?”

So, why is it that people have such a hard time even questioning the official version, and why is it difficult for them to even look at alternative information about the events of 9/11?

“At this point we have nine years of hard scientific evidence that disproves the government theory about what happened on September 11th, and yet people continue to be either oblivious to the fact that this information exists, or completely resistant to looking at this information. So the question becomes, why? Why is it that people have so much trouble hearing this information?

From my work  I think we would be remiss not to look at the impact of trauma.” – Marti Hopper, Ph.D.

Trauma Based Mind Control Works

Firstly, it is critical to bring attention to the severity of trauma incurred when witnessing and processing an event of this magnitude. The nation, and much of the world, is still suffering from mass, collective PTSD, and as time goes by, our exposure to more acts of terror only amplify our attempts to bury this trauma within the psyche.

The darker and more horrifying the affront to our humanity, the more effective we are at burying it. The shock and awe theory of consciousness.

“Many people respond to these truths in a very deep way. Some have a visceral reaction, like they’ve been punched in the stomach. To begin to accept the possibility that the government was involved is like opening pandoras box. If you open the lid and peek in a little bit, it’s going to challenge some of your fundamental beliefs about the world.” – Robert Hopper, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist

Protecting Worldview Home

Psychologists highlight how the human mind has a tendency to look out for its own security, protecting itself from ideas that challenge core beliefs. When your worldview comes into serious doubt, it can feel like everything is crashing down, and that you’re being thrown into the great wide open with no security. Much as the body shifts into fight or flight mode when danger is clear and present, so too, the mind has tools of evasion from harm.

“When we hear information that contradicts our worldview, social psychologists call the resulting insecurity, ‘cognitive dissonance.’” – Frances Shure, M.A.

The mind tries to survive by allowing conflicting information to exist simultaneously, unconsciously choosing to bury that which causes the most disruption to the comfort of held beliefs.

In the case of 9/11, and other events where the media plays a critical role in creating a narrative of what happened, one cognition is always the official narrative which typically supports presently held beliefs about society, and the other cognition can be based on fact and evidence, but since it challenges to undermine the safety of such illusions, it is thusly over ridden.

“9/11 truth challenges the beliefs that our country protects us and keeps up safe, and that America is the good guy. When your beliefs are challenged, fear and anxiety are created. In response to that, our psychological defenses kick in, and they protect us from these emotions. Denial, which is probably the most primitive psychological defense is the one most likely to kick in when our beliefs are challenged.” – Robert Hopper, Ph.D

The result is disharmony, the collapse of a very important worldview and a source of psychological protection. What is left in its place is insecurity, vulnerability, and confusion, triggering a survival mechanism.

7-30-2016 10-56-58 AM

Final Thoughts

9/11 is a crime and a public trauma so grand, that for one to look deeply into it will require them to change or adjust at least some of their fundamental beliefs about the world. Cognitive dissonance, which can lead to the most bizarre reactions to controversially true information, is the mind’s way of hunkering down and weathering the storm in self-protection.

“The terror associated with our unstoppable annihilation creates a subconscious conflict or anxiety called cognitive dissonance. We try to cope with having to accept two contrary ideas. – Gary Vey

This is why the 9/11 issue is so important in our collective awakening. It is so big, and so well-documented that it can lead to a complete reevaluation of our entire worldview and social systems, and a huge leap forward in consciousness and awareness.

If we can think of our world view as being sort of our mental and emotional home, I think all of us would do just about anythign to defend our homes, defend our families…” – Dorothy Loring, M.A., Counseling Psychologist

Take a look at the following presentation looking at why our minds tend to shut down when confronted with the alternate view of 9/11:

THE REAL AMERICANS! WHO ARE THEY, AND WHAT DO THEY BELIEVE?

July 27th, 2016 by

Note! Revisions have been made so please start from the beginning.

 By Olddog

 To be a real American, one must understand the history of the different kinds of governments, and insist on lawful protections for the people and their assets. That sentence is the epitome of freedom from tyranny, because history has documented how tyrannical most governments have been to their constituents.

Unless the children are raised up with this knowledge being the focus of their attention, sooner or later they will fall pray to demented desires and lean toward democracy because they want to make the world to suit them.

This is called human nature, and the correct teaching of Christian scripture authenticates all humans are born with a depraved nature, and must seek God for redemption. This ideology was prevalent in the beginning of America, but was denigrated by depraved Pastors UNDER THE CONTROL OF THE GOVERNMENT, and the ever present desire to be in charge of ones depraved mind. Also, many parents were too lazy to study scripture and allowed these depraved Pastors to “bend their minds” so to speak.

This entire problem human beings have with getting along with one another is directly due to their depraved desire to make their own rules, do their own thing, and be in charge, and the results is always chaos. An understanding of this principal early in life would give each competent person more reason to study the history of tyrannical governance.

Any intelligent person can and should study real history so as to know what human traits to follow and avoid, because those who have the compulsion to lead are usually depraved.

Not all men/women are tyrants, but most will struggle with, and find the ability to get people to obey His/Her dictates until they are holding power over the people. Hence, unbreakable provision must be in place before any government comes to power. This is available in plain English in the Bible, and is the not a hindrance to government, or the unbeliever.

I have never heard of a Church forcing people to attend as the depraved know full well they must have a system of division to play one group over another. So, how can a group of doctrinally ignorant people choose a pastor?

THEY CANNOT! Therefore raising up a child in a godly home and school is of upmost importance. Homo sapiens must be converted before they can live in peace and obedience.

I do not write this with the confidence I am a born-again Christian, but from the knowledge gained from a compulsive life of studying the train-wreck of demented human-beings that were never educated on the history of man-kind.  How can one avoid tyranny if they know not what it is and looks like?

Surreptitious men and women prowl the world looking for followers, knowing full well the power of their gymnastic word-smithing, and these liars abound everywhere, and the only protection from their linguistic narcotics is knowledge of the past.

I believe coupled with the events this generation has personally witnessed; what I have claimed above should be easy to accept. Even if Christianity is no longer acceptable to the majority of this country and generation, something must convince them to avoid being ignorant of the past failures of the Church, the government, and the morals of the people.

Being convinced that only moral people can lead a group of people if freedom is to prevail, I will now itemize some absolutes that history has authenticated must be followed.

As stated above only intelligent and informed people are    equipped to be leaders and that should apply to those

who vote. One cannot escape the necessity of having learned from past history that a democracy equalizes everyone regardless of their knowledge and negates the votes of the learned person. The results are catastrophic! The person who wants to vote their self some benefit they have not the skill or intelligence to acquire on their own is a burden to everyone else, denigrates freedom, and is detrimental to the Nation. Supporting the poor is the obligation of the Christian community and those who have more than they need.

A performance bond should be required by all who occupy government offices, from the President on down. The people must demand total compliance to the Constitution by their elected representatives and all government employees, and anyone with reasonable evidence of fraud or coercion may bring charges before the courts.

As the need for more and more communication between other Nations has increased from the out of control world commerce the Bankers forced on us, an import export equalization must be designed and adhered to, and only bonded people  with prior international commerce experience should be allowed to represent the States.

The people’s militias must be reinstated by the states with no control by the National Government and after a period of time if it becomes a necessity a National army-Navy may be formed with permission of all the States, but never allowed to exercise operations falling under the state Militias’ obligations. Only foreign wars are the obligation of the National armed forces and it is the equal by population obligation of the States to finance an Army-Navy.

From past experience it is foolish for the States to surrender any authority to a National government, and must establish said national government with State governors, leaving the obligation of state operations to the deputy Governor. The remaining 49 Governors will be the legislators as no more than that should be needed to comply and protect the Constitution for the States of America.

Public education facilities should be funded and maintained by State Governments but have no authority over the Teachers, curriculum, or administration and every community should have a school staffed by teachers who have attended and excelled in constitutional law. The number of Government supplied buildings for education must conform to each neighborhood population requirements. An agreed on number of students per buildings should be established by a County/City Government and controlled by County/City Commissioners. All physical maintenance needs should be by the private sector. School supplies are the responsibility of the parents and when necessary by the County.

All possible means of eliminating control over the people by powerful organizations, both private, Corporate, and Government must be applied in the States Constitutions.

Presidential Eligibility SHALL BE LIMITED to those who have been a State Governor for a minimum of one term, and then a Senator of at least one full term, and appointed by the Body of Governors with a majority vote of 70% of the Governors. No such person may occupy the office of President for more than one four year term unless a 100% vote by the Governors is accomplished.

Voters are appointed by their county commissioner and must receive a 100% vote. This privilege is limited to those who have proven by writing at least ten letters to the Commissioners that they fully understand the Constitution and all of the citizen’s rights. No citizen may be refused voter status who has accomplished proof of his/her constitutional comprehension, and has remained an honest person. This may not seem fair to those who have not the intellect or education to compose a convincing letter, but all diligence must be kept if the system is to work. This is no place for lesser intellects to make demands, but care must be taken less tyrants arise in the commissioners. A group of one hundred voters may change the commissioners vote to protect the denied person.

NOTE:

This is going to be an on going project and all readers are welcome to participate with suggestions by email. I will publish your name with each suggestion or withhold it per your choice. Time prevents me from committing to the full and complete document, and it is your country and future to help protect also, besides no one person has the intelligence and experience to be a lone author of this project.

Part 2

NOTE: AS OF       I HAVE RECEIVED NO SUGGESTIONS FROM MY RECEIPIENTS OR BROWSING READERS. WHERE ARE YOU, AMERICANS?

In part one I laid out a partial outline for a Government for the States of America whereby the people’s State Governors were voted as president, under the assumption that they, being competent and experienced executives in State governance, would continue in a more National position. However much was not addressed on why and how this system would be more controllable by the people.

The first thing that came to mind was having someone experienced and approved by his pears in governing the State he belonged to with a higher desire to govern on a National level without showing favoritism to his State of origin. It makes sense to vote the best of the best to a higher office, and who else besides his peers would know his capabilities? Let them decide who is or would be the best President.

I also have concerns about keeping the uninformed from voting, as history proves that they will always vote for the biggest giver of favors and benefits. The objective is to maintain control over other people trying to force democracy into the system.

I have since revised my position on the Congressional level of government by keeping the forty nine former governors as the Senate, and populating the congress with ex State Deputy governors. Here again, keeping the best of the best in power, and as small as possible. SO WHO OR WHAT BODY IS REALLY KEEPING EVERYONE HONEST?

 With that problem in mind I suggest that the traditional acceptance of the President being the stud duck of the Nation is fallible with full support of past atrocities. 

Therefore, I suggest that the number one person in the hierarchy of government should be a professional in Common and International law and the traditional President should be more of a International Secretary of State, and overseer of the legislators.

The stud duck of the Nation should be more of what we presently perceive as an Attorney General as his /her specialty should be in Common Law for the peoples protection, and International Law for International Commerce and Nation to Nation obligations.

His/Her obligations should be to keep erroneous laws from arising from the legislature and States, plus International Relations/obligations. The hero worship of just one leader is more appropriate in comic books.  

If all this seems chaotic, consider that the Supreme Common Law Court and the Supreme International law Court would have little to do other than indict and try the more complicated cases. NO MORE REVISSIONIST INTERPETATIONS OF THE LAW. SINCE ALL ELECTED REPRESENTATIVES WERE IN AGGREMANT ON DEFENITIONS BEFORE TAKING OFFICE. Then, we could be confident that our understanding of our Constitution and their understanding was one and the same.

The following is an outline of this system of governance.

At the top is the people’s court of appeal who are unpaid 1000 members of each fifty States and designated as (The Peoples Court of appeal), and voted in office by the people of their States who are holders of State certifications of born in America by parents with born in America certificates. They alone hold the power over American jurisprudence. So if a 90% majority of fifty thousand learned citizens decide what the rest of us are subjected to, there is little chance of tyranny reigning. This assembly of learned citizens have the obligation of providing proof of education and jurisprudence knowledge and a life time history of a passion for freedom from tyranny, and may be expelled only by a majority vote of the entire Nation of qualified voters. A qualified voter must be acknowledged as a legitimate citizen and produce evidence of it, and have obtained the age of between 21 years and 65 years. We as a Nation shall not be subject to the whims of our children.

The Attorney General is at the top of the elected paid offices and subject only to the people’s court of appeal. It is his obligation to override lower courts and political organizations, such as Congress, the Senate, and Supreme Court decisions. He faces the wrath of the People’s Court of appeal only, and is paid the highest salary of any office. Hint $500.000 per year.

The number two office is a Senator, who shall be obligated to evaluate the brain farts of Congress as to being compatible with the Constitution for the united States of America, and submitting to the Attorney General their decision. Each Senator and only one per State shall be compensated according to their State governance decisions. They each have a four year term of office, with no re-election possible.

The next lower Office is that of the People’s Congress and they are responsible to the people of their State for their understanding of what the States Majority requires from the Senate. They have a four year term in office and may not be re-elected, which requires an educational system in each State that meets the Standards of ten principals’ of freedom from tyranny which is written from the true history of America. Each subject they are presenting to the Senate must come from the majority of the State citizens as a request for consideration. This allows for a buffer between the ignorance of the people and the reliability of the Congress-men/women. No Congress-person may submit a consideration of the Senate of they’re own design, as the people must be served first and only. Their ideas must be approved by their constitution before falling under the dominion of the people. SO! WHO IS THE REAL MAJORITY?

Next is the supreme Court, and they consist of Common Law and Admiralty law educated and authenticated specialists in both fields of law, and are required to decide and determine the compatibility of laws passed by Congress and the senate as to their compatibility with the Constitution FOR the united States of America. When their decisions are ignored they may indict and try those who supported such laws that they alone agreed were not compatible with the Constitution. They are not only decision makers of the law but punishers also, and are voted into office by the majority of legal citizens of each State. This is the method used to get the people educated and responsible for the control of their government. Short of paying people to be educated and involved in governance methodology, this is the only logical method I can imagine.

As you can plainly see, I am convinced that homo sapiens are not necessarily compatible with being governed as the individual in us all cries out for recognition. The desire to choose ones path in life is strong and not always well thought out. Many get lost in their pursuit of happiness, and one thing is undeniable; they all want to live free from tyranny. I also understand this proposed system of governance appears or maybe borders on forced servitude, but if your children refuse to do their fair share of the work in the family, do you let them slide and force more labor on those who will? If you want to be free remember this, freedom is not free!

One must come to terms with the truth of human nature!

Which the rest of us rely on.

 As I stated in the beginning of this project, I expected feedback and suggestions from my readers. None did!

It Looks Like the Global Debt Bomb Is Ready to Blow

July 22nd, 2016 by

http://www.thedailysheeple.com/it-looks-like-the-global-debt-bomb-is-ready-to-blow_072016

7-22-2016 7-48-48 AMBy Joshua Krause

In recent years we’ve seen global debts soar to heights never before seen in human history. Before the financial crisis of 2007 and 2008, public and private debts were already out of control, but when the governments of the world tried to keep the global economy together with all their might, they did so by going into debt, to the tune of over $200 trillion. And that’s just what the numbers looked like the last time anyone checked back in 2014. Who knows how much debt the world is in now.

And that $200 trillion by the way, amounts to around 300% of the world’s GDP, and it’s still growing. Obviously this isn’t sustainable. If you had a credit card debt worth three times as much as your yearly salary, and it continued to grow year after year, you’d be bankrupt in no time.

At some point, these debts are going implode the global economy. It’s a certainty. The only question that remains, is when will this happen?

One of the signs that suggests this event is fast approaching, can be found in the way that governments are issuing their bonds, which are essentially debt contracts that can be bought by investors. Traditionally, a government or institution will sell bonds to an investor, with the promise that they will pay them a certain interest rate. After 10 or 20 years, the investor will get all of their money back in addition to the interest rate they’ve been accumulating. It’s basically a loan given to governments by investors.

But now governments are starting to issue bonds with negative interest rates. Imagine if a bank gave you a loan, but instead of having to pay an interest rate, the bank paid you. So after ten years a $100,000 loan may only cost you $99,000. Except in this case, you the bond buyer, are the bank.

Make sense? Of course not. You’d have to be crazy to make that deal. But that hasn’t stopped these negative interest yield bonds from becoming obscenely popular over the past couple of years.

Now it’s $13 trillion.

That’s the total amount of government bonds in the world that have negative yields, according to calculations published last week by Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

Given that there were almost zero negative-yielding bonds just two years ago, the rise to $13 trillion is incredible.

In February 2015, the total amount of negative-yielding debt in the world was ‘only’ $3.6 trillion.

A year later in February 2016 it had nearly doubled to $7 trillion.

Now, just five months later, it has nearly doubled again to $13 trillion, up from $11.7 trillion just over two weeks ago.

Think about that: the total sum of negative-yielding debt in the world has increased in the last sixteen days alone by an amount that’s larger than the entire GDP of Russia.

Think about the implications of this. There are investors out there who are actually buying bonds that are guaranteed to lose them money if they sit on them. They are basically donating money to governments, so they can continue to operate. Who in the hell would ever make that deal?

The truth is that for some investors, buying negative yield bonds makes sense, albeit for horrible reasons that do not bode well for the future of the global economy.

These investors are basically betting that the economy is going to tank so badly that no investment will be safe, and that the governments who issue these bonds will still be standing when the dust settles to fulfill their bond contracts. They think that the safest investment, is not one that will earn them money, but one that will lose them the least amount of money, all things considered. Most Western governments have a stellar track record of paying back their bonds (though whether they’ll be able to in the near future is yet to be seen), so these investors figure that losing a little money on bonds is a better bet than any other asset, including stocks, real estate, or any entrepreneurial pursuit.

Can you imagine a world where literally everything is going to lose value? These investors view that as a possibility. They may even think that they can make money on these bonds when the economy tanks, because in a crisis, other investors may be willing to pay top dollar for the relative safety of these bonds.

And now we’re in bubble territory, because there’s no way that investors are going to buy these bonds indefinitely. Let’s be real now, they’re not safe at all. They only appear that way to people who think that the current state of affairs will go on forever, and that there’s no way their government could go bankrupt.

However, the fact that these negative bonds exist, means that governments are growing desperate to keep the lid on the debts they already have. The only reason why a government would issue negative yield bonds, is if they didn’t have enough money to pay the interest rates on the bonds they had issued before. They’re just hoping and praying that people will be dumb enough to buy them.

But once the trust is gone, and these investors realize that their governments are hopelessly broke, nobody will buy these bonds. And once that happens, these governments will be forced to admit that they can no longer manage their debt obligations. Not now, not tomorrow, and not in a million freaking years. And just like that, trillions of imaginary dollars will disappear from electronic spreadsheets all over the world.

Much like how the financial crash of 2008 started with the collapse of real estate in the United States, but eventually cascaded into a global disaster, the implosion of the global debt bomb will start small before burning everything to the ground. Major companies, municipalities, pensions, schools, and entire nations will go bankrupt, and John Q. Public will lose everything as well. They’ll lose everything, right when the institutions that provide essential services start to cut everything back. You can bet that the welfare state will be hollowed out as well, and suddenly millions of people will be hurled into a Darwinian state of affairs.

It’s going to be the most horrific disaster that any of us in the developed world have ever seen. It’s going to make 2008 look like a golden age. And not only is this event inevitable, it’s closer than you think.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

Are you unaware that this is a carefully planned and executed event by the International Investment Bankers? Are you unaware of their plan to use a financial   mega blowup to create tyranny worldwide? Can you believe any group of human beings could be intelligent enough to plan and execute such an event? If all your answers are no, then you have had your head up your ass as long as you have lived. Why, in light of the atrocities we have all been exposed to, are you still slack-jawed over this event? You must be among those who do not yet know that rain gets you wet. Why are these monsters still alive and enjoying their victories? Is there no human being on earth capable of understanding what they have done and put a bullet up their ass? You can start with the Rothschild’s and Rocker-fellows. The list of tyrants is longer that a horse’s dick.

THE REAL AMERICANS!

 WHAT DO THEY BELIEVE?

By Olddog

 To be a real American, one must understand the history of the different kinds of governments, and insist on lawful protections for the people and their assets.

Unless the children are raised up with this knowledge being the focus of their attention, sooner or later they will fall pray to demented desires and lean toward democracy because they want to make the world to suit them.

This entire problem human beings have with getting along with one another is directly due to their depraved desire to make their own rules, do their own thing, and be in charge!

Any intelligent person can and should study real history so as to know what human traits to follow and avoid, because those who have the compulsion to lead are usually depraved.

Not all men/women are tyrants, but most will struggle with, and find the ability to get people to obey His/Her dictates until they are holding power over the people. Hence, unbreakable provision must be in place before any government comes to power. This is available in plain English in the Bible, and is the not a hindrance to government, or the unbeliever.
