Looking Jesus in the eye

July 16th, 2011 by

 

This has been around for awhile, but it’s so good… I often think of how difficult it is to get to an unknown location without a map; how difficult it is to truly pray about heaven and envision going there without having a firm concept of what it is.  This message deals directly with those thoughts.  Marilyn Barnewall – – – -James P. Harvey aka OldDog – – – ???
 

I can only imagine…

Heaven as written by a 17 Year Old Boy

This is excellent and really gets you thinking about what will happen in Heaven.

17-year-old Brian Moore had only a short time to write something for a class. The subject was what Heaven was like. "I wowed 'em," he later told his father, Bruce. "It's a killer. It's the bomb. It's the best thing I ever wrote." It also was the last.

Brian's parents had forgotten about the essay when a cousin found it while cleaning out the teenager's locker at Teays Valley High School in Pickaway County

Brian had been dead only hours, but his parents desperately wanted every piece of his life near them, notes from classmates and teachers, and his homework. Only two months before, he had handwritten the essay about encountering Jesus in a file room full of cards detailing every moment of the teen's life. But it was only after Brian's death that Beth and Bruce Moore realized that their son had described his view of heaven.

It makes such an impact that people want to share it. "You feel like you are there," Mr. Moore said.. Brian Moore died May 27, 1997, the day after Memorial Day. He was driving home from a friend's house when his car went off Bulen-Pierce Road in Pickaway County and struck a utility pole. He emerged from the wreck unharmed but stepped on a downed power line and was electrocuted.

The Moore 's framed a copy of Brian's essay and hung it among the family portraits in the living room. "I think God used him to make a point. I think we were meant to find it and make something out of it," Mrs. Moore said of the essay. She and her husband want to share their son's vision of life after death. "I'm happy for Brian. I know he's in heaven. I know I'll see him.
Here is Brian's essay entitled:

"The Room.."

In that place between wakefulness and dreams, I found myself in the room. There were no distinguishing features except for the one wall covered with small index card files. They were like the ones in libraries that list titles by author or subject in alphabetical order. But these files, which stretched from floor to ceiling and seemingly endless in either direction, had very different headings.

As I drew near the wall of files, the first to catch my attention was one that read "Girls I have liked." I opened it and began flipping through the cards. I quickly shut it, shocked to realize that I recognized the names written on each one. And then without being told, I knew exactly where I was. This lifeless room with its small files was a crude catalog system for my life. Here were written the actions of my every moment, big and small, in a detail my memory couldn't match. A sense of wonder and curiosity, coupled with horror, stirred within me as I began randomly opening files and exploring their content. Some brought joy and sweet memories; others a sense of shame and regret so intense that I would look over my shoulder to see if anyone was watching.

A file named "Friends" was next to one marked "Friends I have betrayed." The titles ranged from the mundane to the outright weird. "Books I Have Read," "Lies I Have Told," "Comfort I have Given," "Jokes I Have Laughed at."

Some were almost hilarious in their exactness: "Things I've yelled at my brothers." Others I couldn't laugh at: "Things I Have Done in My Anger", "Things I Have Muttered Under My Breath at My Parents." I never ceased to be surprised by the contents Often there were many more cards than expected. Sometimes fewer than I hoped. I was overwhelmed by the sheer volume of the life I had lived.

Could it be possible that I had the time in my years to fill each of these thousands or even millions of cards? But each card confirmed this truth. Each was written in my own handwriting. Each signed with my signature.

When I pulled out the file marked "TV Shows I have watched," I realized the files grew to contain their contents. The cards were packed tightly, and yet after two or three yards, I hadn't found the end of the file. I shut it, shamed, not so much by the quality of shows but more by the vast time I knew that file represented.

When I came to a file marked "Lustful Thoughts," I felt a chill run through my body. I pulled the file out only an inch, not willing to test its size, and drew out a card. I shuddered at its detailed content. I felt sick to think that such a moment had been recorded. An almost animal rage broke on me.

One thought dominated my mind: No one must ever see these cards! No one must ever see this room! I have to destroy them!" In insane frenzy I yanked the file out. Its size didn't matter now. I had to empty it and burn the cards…

But as I took it at one end and began pounding it on the floor, I could not dislodge a single card. I became desperate and pulled out a card, only to find it as strong as steel when I tried to tear it. Defeated and utterly helpless, I returned the file to its slot. Leaning my forehead against the wall, I let out a long, self-pitying sigh.

And then I saw it. The title bore "People I Have Shared the Gospel With." The handle was brighter than those around it, newer, almost unused. I pulled on its handle and a small box not more than three inches long fell into my hands. I could count the cards it contained on one hand.

And then the tears came. I began to weep. Sobs so deep that they hurt. They started in my stomach and shook through me. I fell on my knees and cried. I cried out of shame, from the overwhelming shame of it all. The rows of file shelves swirled in my tear-filled eyes.. No one must ever, ever know of this room. I must lock it up and hide the key. But then as I pushed away the tears, I saw Him.

No, please not Him. Not here. Oh, anyone but Jesus. I watched helplessly as He began to open the files and read the cards. I couldn't bear to watch His response. And in the moments I could bring myself to look at His face, I saw a sorrow deeper than my own. He seemed to intuitively go to the worst boxes.

Why did He have to read every one? Finally He turned and looked at me from across the room. He looked at me with pity in His eyes. But this was a pity that didn't anger me. I dropped my head, covered my face with my hands and began to cry again. He walked over and put His arm around me. He could have said so many things. But He didn't say a word. He just cried with me.

Then He got up and walked back to the wall of files. Starting at one end of the room, He took out a file and, one by one, began to sign His name over mine on each card. "No!" I shouted rushing to Him. All I could find to say was "No, no," as I pulled the card from Him.. His name shouldn't be on these cards. But there it was, written in red so rich, so dark, and so alive.

The name of Jesuscovered mine. It was written with His blood. He gently took the card back He smiled a sad smile and began to sign the cards. I don't think I'll ever understand how He did it so quickly, but the next instant it seemed I heard Him close the last file and walk back to my side. He placed His hand on my shoulder and said, "It is finished."

I stood up, and He led me out of the room. There was no lock on its door. There were still cards to be written.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

If you feel the same way forward it to as many people as you can so the love of Jesus will touch their lives also. My "People I shared the gospel with" file just got bigger, how about yours?

 

 

 

 

 

 

AMERICA’S GRAND FINALE

July 16th, 2011 by

Jackie Juntti forwarded these words of wisdom from an old friend – Dorothy Anne Seese. Give her thanks at idzrus@earthlink.net

AMERICA'S GRAND FINALE
under the imperial Roman eagle
© By Dorothy Anne Seese

There is no doubt that the rise and fall of the United States of America bears a close resemblance to the rise and fall of the Roman Empire, from its days as a representative republic to the final collapse in its own debauchery, too weak to fight even if inclined so to do. The imperial eagle is the emblem used by both Rome and the United States, a bird of freedom and power, but also a bird of prey. How fitting.

A television series I recently watched on Rome's technological advances, engineering excellence, and moral perversion made a direct comparison between the USA and Rome, something that surprised me just a little since it was shown on a rather popular educational channel. Rome's arches made possible engineering feats centuries ahead of their time. Roman roads still exist, in part, centuries after the fall of the empire. America's transcontinental railroads, automobiles and airlines, use of laser technology and nuclear capability have made possible a republic wealthier than any since Roman times, stronger than its neighbors around the world, and now more to be feared. Sadly, the corruptive seeds inherent in the possession of power have made it a target for a fall equal to or greater than that of Rome.

While New York symbolizes the financial strength of the US, more fictional than real due to our enormous debt and interdependence on other nations, a precalculated condition brought about by the modern Visigoths who control international finance and demand cooperation from the US, Las Vegas symbolizes Pompeii, the riotous living capital of the Roman empire. Millions of people, American as well as foreign tourists, flock there to indulge themselves in every vice and leave behind billions of dollars for the luxury of such an experience. The exotic hotel complexes, more lavish than anything Pompeii could have offered, showcase restaurants where dinner for two costs the revelers over $300. And that's just dinner. It isn't difficult to drop ten to twelve thousand dollars for a single weekend in Las Vegas.

Romans also lost their identity in the growth of the empire. Roman citizenship became conveyed on any and all who would swear allegiance to, or contribute money to, the emperor's treasury. Being a "Roman" came to mean being a non-slave or a non-barbarian (generally those who spoke Slavic or Germanic languages). By so diluting the identity of Romans as being what we today regard as Italians, the empire grew weaker as it grew larger, and each language group became minimally bilingual … Latin for business, the native language for all other purposes. This cultural dilution was encouraged by the Roman emperor and his court for the purpose of gaining finances to protect their extensive borders, but every time they succeeded in gaining money, they lost power and became bankrupt. When they could not pay their huge standing army, it deserted. In the US, we're cutting and have cut our military strength, yet our military is still efficient if allowed to be so. It's being used up, decimated in fact, by useless foreign wars in places where we are accomplishing nothing. Not even Rome began a campaign with nothing more in mind than to lose!

However, not all is lost in our wars-for-nothing, other than the lives of soldiers who are as expendable as Roman soldiers or worse, the gladiators who died in the arenas of public entertainment. The US has a multinational military/industrial complex that benefits financially, at the expense of the American taxpayer, from supplying the military and gaining large contracts for "rebuilding" devastated areas, at best a ridiculous notion from an imperial standpoint. But, this is a different age and has been since the Marshall Plan. The presence of US troops is a hollow shadow of the protection once offered, and our armies are expendable if they accomplish a presence that allows the construction contracts to proceed. That isn't capitalism, it is tyranny and tyranny at its worst, disguised as capitalism. Huge monopolies form an elite that has allied itself with the global governance elite of bankers and financiers at the expense of human lives and the destruction of the Republic.

Romans, in the period of the Republic, were quite religious folks, dedicated to several deities borrowed from Babylon by way of Greece. While this is no endorsement of their pagan deities, at least the people did have some higher authorities, capricious as they were, to please. In America, founded by devout Christians seeking religious freedom from the Anglican church (those Mayflower folks), churches were built, universities and theological seminaries built to teach the essentials of the Christian faith, doctrine and practice. Whatever criticisms we might have of their intolerance for other practitioners of the Christian faith, this nation was most certainly colonized by those who were devout believers in the Christ, the Bible, and the simple Christian life.

The founders who organized, fought and won the American Revolution had respect for if not total belief in the Holy Scriptures. The idea that the vast universe just "big banged" itself into existence would have been called heresy or worse. The intricacies of design obvious in all things, and the interdependence of climate, crops, pollenization, growth cycles and times of restoration were sufficient to satisfy most colonists that man is not an accident but a direct creation of a personal God who demands accountability from His creation. While cigars were tolerated, homosexuality was absolutely forbidden by law and punishable by that law.

However, just as Rome tired of its deities and began to ignore them, Americans of the late 19th and 20th centuries tired of God's absolute rules, considered them restrictive and regressive, and thus began to chip away at the foundational Christian principles of our founders' government. The Supreme Court was used/misused to end prayer in schools, approve of abortion as a woman's "constitutional right" and is now faced with whether it shall redefine marriage to include any union. Even Rome, with its rampant homosexuality and pedophelia, never attempted to redefine marriage! While marriages were often matters of money and convenience, they were always between man and woman. In that regard, the Romans were just one baby step ahead of the United States and its redefinition of marriage.

Christianity thrived in the Roman empire, so much so that Nero found it convenient to pin his little bonfire on this "new sect" of religionists and use Christian captives as human torches to light his patio parties.

In America, we are not far from having our Bibles banned as "hate literature." Why? Because it condemns fornication, adultery, pornography and homosexuality. To condemn such can be construed as "hating" or "propagating hatred" of those involved, which happens to be a growing segment of Americans or persons living in this country. The supposed 80% of Americans who declare they are "Christian" is either a totally skewed figure or the pollsters selected their samples from the American midwest and the South. If 80% of our people were Bible-believing, obedient Christians, this nation would have had a revolt at the first Supreme Court decision in 1962 removing prayer from the schools. Only weak, careless, pew-warming churchgoers who attend for the sake of appearances would have allowed such an attack on the practices of our nation since it was a British colony to prevail.

Instead, our church are figuring out how to "get with the program" and bring in more people for more money, more offerings in the plate. Rather than serving the poor, they build grandiose buildings to "honor" God, but they are honoring the god of mammon, not the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, not the Great "I AM."

Thus, the United States, with the Imperial Eagle at the forefront, marches straight into the abyss with Rome and its predecessors that have been left in the dust by history. Babylon, or the "spirit of Babylon" jumps from one empire to another seamlessly, with its greedy commerce, false religion and corrupt politics.

Just as it was with Rome, is with the United States, so shall it be with the One World Government, the final age of human government that will incur the final judgment on man's inability to govern himself or live apart from the evil nature within him.

I have loved my country. My government lost my respect in 1965 and thereafter, a-whoring after other nations for the sake of a few unscrupulous millionaires claiming "free trade" in the stead of what should have been called treason. America's resources were great, they have been wrongfully exploited and much of our land is owned by those outside the United States, non-citizens, whose interests are to take and not give, to ruin what we built before non-citizens were permitted to own property in the United States.

Many patriots want to take back the United States, thinking that we need only fight the present government. That is limited thinking. Patriots would have mercenaries from all over the world, courtesy of the United Nations, ready to kill any American who rises up against this unjust and debauched system.

There is but One with whom these wealthy profligates have to deal, and He will deal both justly and swiftly. Those who fear Him have nothing else to fear, not even the demise of America as we knew it. After all, this life and the lifespans of nations are purely mortal, and the greatness of God's Kingdom is eternal.

Revelation 11:18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. (KJV)

The Revolution?  It's Over.
The Rest is Just Enforcement

© By Dorothy Anne Seese

The cultural revolution is over.  Without a shot being fired other than by government agents, America was changed, transformed, from a land of liberty to a nation of multicultural tolerance dolts with liberal educations and preemptive mindsets. There is still a bit of mop up work to do to clear out some radical free-thinkers (mostly pesky Christians and diehards of the Confederacy and its battle flag) but they will be eradicated within a decade. One way or another.

American heritage has been demeaned, despised and desecrated. It has also been revised by revisionists who have graduated from universities that inculcate principles of the cultural revolutionaries.  The South was uniquely regional in its character, belief system, social behavior and pride.  A new "reconstruction" is mopping up where new, lesser and quieter "Shermans" have come and taken over its cities, media, schools and political arenas. The South will one day find its biscuits and gravy have been banned by the World Health Organization as nothing but flour and grease, and replaced by baked broccoli omelettes with sliced tomatoes.  No Southerner will be permitted to refer to the Stars and Stripes as the "Union flag" and all displays of the Confederate battle flag will be banned under penalty of law. Free speech emanates from free thinking, and to control freedom of speech is eventually to change the direction and tenor of free thought.

The South has always been unique in character, something that the cultural revolution cannot permit in any area of the country.  Arizonans were once rugged individualists. That situation has been corrected by cultural revolutionaries quietly moving over from California and occupying the major cities and some of the pricier small towns. In each case the newcomers took command by vocal minorities (or majorities) and initiating activism for liberal agendas.  The only way the Arizona state seal escaped being altered for having the motto "Ditat Deus" (God provides) is that no one speaks Latin. There is no need to make an issue out of things the general public doesn't comprehend, the objective is to make issues out of what the public understands all too well, and to do it for great causes like "the children" or "the environment" or, that greatest of all masques, "the future of our country."

The Revolution is over, and Americans are desensitized to the point where nothing short of an attack on New York, Washington, or San Francisco will get their attention, a larger attack than Nine-Eleven.  Cases of outrage are few.  The government ran some tests as to the outrage threshold of Americans and found it was peculiarly dense, satisfactory to the cultural commandants, when free Americans shrugged their shoulders at:

The killing of Vicky Weaver at Ruby Ridge by an FBI sniper;

The incinerating of women and children at the Branch Davidian compound near Waco, Texas;

The institution of martial law in Georgia twice, once in 1996 for the Olympics and again in June 2004 for the G8 Summit meeting on Sea Island.

The outsourcing of American border security to Accenture, a Bermuda-based corporation (formerly Arthur Andersen and Co. of the Enron scandal infamy), to pay offshore crooks up to $10 billion to "defend" the American borders, but no one has said which way the guns will be facing.  We do know that the U.S. Marines, when questioned as to whether they would fire on fellow Americans, said "no."  Outsourcing to mercenaries is the only answer to a military that is loyal to its countrymen until they can be replaced by those whose mindset is not to protect the people but only the state and the powers that run it.

Whoever controls the firepower controls the state, which is why the insistence of the various UN and liberal American globalists that average citizens surrender their guns.  Los Angeles is out of control with gangs and a police force that is not controlling them.  Murder rates in both Los Angeles, California and Phoenix, Arizona are staggering.

It will become necessary, of course, to have some sort of martial law to provide for the safety of our citizens, and the citizens will cry for protection at any price.  After that, the success of The Second Revolution can be announced, but then it will be so obvious it will need no announcement, like daybreak. Or nightfall.

The Constitution is worth no more than the integrity of the judiciary that interprets it, so it can stand as the "living" framework for our nation as long as no one uses it to limit governmental authority over subjugated citizens. 

Education has degenerated to little more than federal indoctrination, carried out through university level, for the purpose of instilling in young minds the worthlessness of the American heritage and the future of the new order to come.  Heritage, ancestry, tradition, morality, religion, family lines and any other allegiances are worthless to statists and will be educated out of the newer generations just as they are being despised publicly and anyone who dares to speak to the contrary is expelled or otherwise disciplined for egregious behavior.  Students are the tools of the order to come, to carry on where the mortal leaders of this generation leave off.

The shot that signaled the onset of the Second Revolution was the shot that killed the late president John F. Kennedy.  The year 1963 saw prayers banned in schools, and the Christians didn't oppose it, although something over 80% of this nation declares that they are "Christian."  That probably means they do not belong to any other religion, grandma was a Christian, or they go to church twice a year.  JFK was about to do away with the Federal Reserve, which is neither part of the federal government nor a true reserve, it is a cartel of US and foreign bankers.  They control the money supply of the United States, and they took the hard currency upon which our monetary system was based.  When Kennedy announced his intentions, he did not live long. 

The Second Revolution continued with the Vietnam war protests.  Regardless of the benefit or uselessness of the war, the hippie movement, the flower children and flag burners were tolerated by Americans who shrugged as long as nothing was happening on their block.   It was just something on the news.  But it brought immorality into vogue, made way for the feminist bra-burning protests, and eventually the gay rights movement.  Then came the drug dealers and cartels from around the world.  Those were followed by an open border policy to the south, so that millions of illegal invaders could dilute the remnant of American culture by their sheer numbers and their general lawlessness.  The sex trade became part of America's corporate structure and philosophy, as was exposed during the war in Kosovo, then disappeared from journalistic sight.

Every bit of the above and more is available through the internet and breaking news wires. Such sources often yield interesting stories that are "timed out" and never picked up by major media.  People have asked how I get my information. Via the internet, from village chat out in diners and markets, wherever I can pick up American thought and global information.  The only work left to do for a writer is to connect the stories and conversations and make a coherent picture out of it, then type.  The times, trends and events are out there for all to see, but most folks are too busy to look.

Many well-meaning Americans are waiting for the right time to fight the takeover of America by the New World Order.  They are expecting a revolution.  But … the revolution came, in fact it began over forty years ago.  They were waiting for gunfire and got professors.  They were waiting for tanks in the streets before it was time, so they got gay rights parades instead.  They turned to homeschooling after the government had anticipated a small rebellion and instead merely got rules and requirements for homeschool curricula.  The list could go on, but everything the honest American patriots were waiting for had been anticipated and circumvented by a different type of revolution.

The globalists are evil, but they are not stupid.  Their planning has been better than anyone gave them credit for being able to accomplish.

It was time to "shoot the bastards" four decades ago but no one saw the handwriting on the wall. Now the wall is encircling us and everything we should like to see done to restore America.  That will take a third revolution, because the second succeeded in taking our liberties and twisting our values, our mindsets and abolishing our cultural heritage.  It was right out in plain sight, and no one saw.  Now the internet writers are corresponding with each other while major media, a mind-control system straight from Stalin's old Pravda, keeps spewing the doctrine of the new order in politically correct language and with slanted stories that the majority of Americans believe.

The Soft Dictatorship

July 15th, 2011 by

 

http://www.americanthinker.com/2011/07/the_soft_dictatorship.html

July 15, 2011

ByRobert Eugene Simmons Jr.

Imagine a hypothetical country where small groups of unelected individuals can make law by simply sitting around a conference table deciding they want a new law, even if that law violates the constitution.  Those unelected representatives could only be dismissed by the executive power and could essentially do whatever they wanted.  Furthermore, imagine if the citizens of that country were not allowed to contest these decisions in court because they did not have "standing" to do so.

Furthermore, imagine at least one of these agencies would be empowered to go seize the property and businesses of the citizenry without any possibility of outside judicial review.  In our hypothetical country, it would not matter if there were an elected body, because the agencies and executives could do pretty much anything they wanted while letting the people have the illusion of electoral control.

The country I am speaking of is not Cuba, Russia, or China.  Startlingly, the country I am speaking of is the United States of America. Bit by bit, and the resulting soft dictatorship is getting worse.  The founders of the USA knew that government would always be the enemy of freedom.  They knew that if it became easy to pass laws then the freedoms of the Constitution would be completely undermined by an avalanche of restrictive laws.  To avoid this fate, they installed checks and balances in the Constitution to make it difficult to pass laws. They would be truly dismayed by the situation we have now some 250 years later.

Currently there are literally hundreds of government agencies that have the power to "regulate" almost any aspect of our lives, from the food we ingest to the way we educate our children.  Those agencies have created nearly 200,000 pages of regulations that have the power to deprive the citizens of property and liberty.  Yet these regulations are not called law because laws, of course, have to be passed by Congress.  Regulations are agreed upon by a small group of regulators that are out of the reach of the election process.  All of this happens despite the fact that there is no constitutional basis for Congress being able to delegate the authority to make laws to a third party and the founders probably never conceived they would try to do such a thing.  However these agencies have been passing "regulations" in direct violation of the Constitution for decades.  For example, apparently Congress cannot pass laws to restrict the Second Amendment but the ATF can pass regulations that have the same effect.

One agency of the federal government in particular has been in direct violation of the Constitution for its entire existence.  The IRS has the power to force citizens to incriminate themselves, violating the Fifth Amendment, and prosecutes trials under the premise that taxpayers are guilty until proven innocent, violating the Sixth Amendment.  Finally, the IRS can seize property and businesses and sell the property and business without a court order, again violating the Fifth Amendment.

In fact, the most terrifying organization in America is the IRS.  They are universally feared, and for good reason.  However, the IRS is arbitrary in their enforcement; several people in the Obama administration have committed outright tax evasion with no consequences.  What would you call an agency with that kind of power and completely arbitrary enforcement?

The final piece to the puzzle of the soft dictatorship is the completely unconstitutional creation of executive orders.  Not only is there no basis in the Constitution for executive orders, but executive orders are often used to outright violate the Constitution.  Franklin D. Roosevelt used executive orders to demand the seizure of all gold owned by Americans and imprison all Americans of Japanese ancestry.  More recently Bill Clinton used executive orders to bypass the Senate ratification of the chemical weapons convention and to try to prevent government contracts going to companies that opposed unions by using strike-breakers. 

Republican progressives are no strangers to unconstitutional executive orders either.  George W. Bush signed executive orders that, among other things, established an alternative government in the case of a presidentially declared emergency.  Barack Obama has continued the tradition of unconstitutional executive orders by granting wide powers to Interpol in America and sealing his own records from inspection, and he is now looking for means to impose gun control through executive orders.  If we consider that an executive order can only be overridden by the Supreme Court (which has only happened twice) or a supermajority of Congress, the power of the executive order is downright scary.

Unfortunately the picture is dismal at best.  Every two years Americans elect their representatives and every six, they elect their senators.  However these elections are little more than a sham to allow Americans to think they still have a republic.  There is virtually nothing that the executive branch and regulatory agencies can't do anymore.  In fact some liberal talkers have outright called for Obama to rule by executive order and he is heeding their call.  When the Cap and Trade bill became impossible to enact, Obama directed the EPA to implement provisions similar to the core thrust of the bill anyway.

America isn't walking into a mine field; it is already deep within the field and in mortal peril of having freedom as we know it perish from the earth.  Liberty, after all, is a relatively new experiment in humanity having been around a scant 250 years of several thousand years of human history.  In fact dictatorship, autocracy, and tyranny are the norm.  The problem with America right now is that people are too anesthetized by the latest reality TV show, celebrity trial, or sex scandal to pay attention to the fact that their freedoms are being stripped from them one at a time.  The only hope is for America to finally wake up and return to the libertarian principles that founded the nation.

 

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

 

In spite of Mr. Simmons exceptionally simplified, and accurate portrayal of America’s present dilemma, I would lay my life on a bet that stated, the vast majority of American’s would not have a clue as to what he is talking about.

At this time in history, this Nation is the dumbest, self-centered, bunch of lazy cowards the world has ever seen. It makes me sick to think anyone in America is not aware of what is going on in our local, state, and federal governments after all off the crap we have endured over the last twenty years.

The truth of the matter is, America has been governed by internationally owned corporations for a hundred years. The idea that citizens with legitimate concerns could obtain the attention of their representatives, and petition for solutions to unforeseen problems, soon morphed into, what’s it worth to get this or that accomplished?, and the system became a stinking cess-pool of graft, theft, and murder. The first major death was lady liberty, and next was the principals we were founded upon. The proliferation of emotional patriotism, and ignorance of freedom principals is epidemic in this nation, and no one seems smart enough to fix it. Multiply the above with the fact that those who are aware of the problem, keep insisting on finding a peaceful solution because they don’t have the balls to counter attack. Let me be as clear as possible, America is toast because the people think they will be able to retain their comfortable lifestyle as long as they don’t cause an uproar. Nothing is further from the truth, and the sooner someone pops a few scumbag politicians, the sooner this show will get on the road. Get this through your little minds folks, AMERICA IS DEAD! Most of our citizens will support the death of the first patriots that stand and fight, and that also happened in the very beginning of this continuing fight for freedom. The powers and principalities that rule the world have no aversion to murder by any means possible, and the reason they get away with it is because, we are too cowardly to stop them.

Sadly very, very few people understand that tyranny is never permanently defeated, it is like a leviathan that can self resurrect eternally. Whenever temporally defeated it comes back like a slow growing cancer, which when defined is a body that destroys itself. Take this to the bank folks, this is not the first or last time that the masses will have to die to temporally be free.

Only a society that is constantly involved in the battle will survive, and our human nature has never allowed us to remain diligent. We are to damn lazy!

All it takes is an economic manipulation to makes us feel secure, and we throw down our weapons, kick back and enjoy the elusion of freedom. I wonder where we would be now if it weren’t for the internet.

THE BIGGEST FACTOR IN THE FUTURE PRICE OF SILVER

July 14th, 2011 by

 

THE COMING SILVER ACCIDENT

By Theodore Butler

The primary factors mandating a silver accident are excessive naked short selling and leasing. Silver has the largest short position that’s ever existed in anything. This is the key component to the coming silver accident. The total naked short position in silver measures into the billions of ounces and towers over real world supplies. This combined short position includes the COMEX, all other exchanges, forward selling and leasing, the cumulative issuance of unbacked silver bank certificates, unallocated storage programs and pool accounts. No other commodity has such a huge naked short position.

It is, basically, this bloated short position that’s at the heart of the coming silver accident. It is this same excessive short position that guarantees a financial windfall for your family. A naked short sale is the sale of something you don’t own. While common in financial markets, more than 99% of the world’s population will never sell short anything in their lifetimes. That’s because it’s an unusual and unnatural financial transaction.

Unbridled short selling can artificially depress the price. That is why we have restrictions on short selling that date back to the great stock market crash of 1929. In commodities, there must be a short for every long on every futures contract. Regulations are supposed to preclude excessive long and short speculation via speculative position limits, but these regulations have been abandoned in COMEX silver, despite the efforts of many of us to correct that.

There is one other aspect about short selling that is important to grasp. Whereas the word “sale” means closure or finality in all the billions of daily world business and financial transactions, a short sale is always an open or incomplete transaction. A normal sale marks the end of a transaction. A short sale makes the beginning of a transaction. A short sale must be completed at some point, in some way. There is no exception to this rule. Either the short sale is repurchased and closed out, or that which has been sold short is actually delivered and the open short sale is closed.

Precisely because all short sales must be closed out guarantees a silver accident. When I say that silver has the largest short position in history, I am also saying that silver has the largest number of incomplete transactions in history. Forget, for the moment, the manipulative and depressing effect this monumental short position has had on the price.

All short sales must be closed out in someway. With silver, could it be by delivering silver? Against the billions of ounces of silver sold short, how much do we have to deliver to close out these incomplete transactions? In the COMEX warehouses there’s 100 million ounces. That represents most of the known silver bullion in the world, but it’s mostly owned by investors other than the short sellers. Maybe there are a billion ounces of silver in the world, in coins, small bars and silverware, but that’s not eligible for delivery against the silver short position of billions of ounces. Not only is all the world silver in existence woefully insufficient to cover the monstrous short position, but most of this insufficient quantity isn’t even owned by the short sellers.

That’s why I’ve made such a big deal about the uniqueness of a silver short position that’s larger than existing world inventories. It eliminates one of the only two legitimate ways in which a short sale can be closed out. That’s why we’ve never seen any other commodity with a short position greater than what actually exists. How can you have a short position in anything greater than what actually exists?

The only remaining legitimate way a silver short position can be closed out is if it were bought back by the short sellers. From whom are these short sellers going to buy hundreds of millions and billions of silver ounces from? Or more correctly, at what price? Since actual delivery is out of the question, the only way the short sellers can buy back their bloated silver short position is to get every owner of real silver and every owner of paper silver to sell out. The price that would be necessary to accomplish that feat would qualify in any reasonable definition as an accident.

While there is no way to determine when the silver shorts will spook and rush to cover, time is not on the shorts’ side. They must try, at some point, to buy back and cover the silver they can’t possibly deliver. It is not important to know in advance what the actual trigger for the silver accident will be. All you need know is that with the critical and long-term physical deficit in silver, the short selling charade must end. Since we can’t determine when, don’t focus on the timing, focus on the inevitability of a delivery crunch.

From 2000 to 2004, the silver price averaged between four and five dollars. Since then, the silver price has been six, seven or eight dollars. Does this increase mean that the price has finally responded to the law of supply and demand, and therefore eliminated the chance of a silver accident?

Normally, a price increase of 50% or 100% in a commodity should be sufficient to balance any consumption deficit. That’s a big move in any commodity. But not for silver. That’s because the consumption deficit in silver is unlike any other commodity deficit. Silver has been in a structural deficit stretching back for more than a half-century. You don’t undo the damage of 60 years with a 50% or 100% gain.

There is zero evidence that production or consumption has been impacted by the price, or that the silver deficit has been cured. There has been no worldwide rush to find new silver mines in response to higher prices. Silver may have increased in price, but there has been zero effect on near-term production increases or substitutions in demand. No one has switched to gold or platinum jewelry because silver is up in price. The law of supply and demand hasn’t been affected one bit as a result of the recent price increases. The first prerequisite for the coming silver accident is very much intact. However, it takes more than a bullish supply and demand equation to cause a violent price event. Bullish fundamentals point to higher prices but not necessarily a price accident. In the silver short position, we have the needed reason, in spades, for an accident.

As a result of the 60-year structural deficit, we have exhausted just about all the world’s previously existing silver inventory. That includes just about all world governments’ silver inventory. When the unavoidable silver accident occurs, there will be no one to douse the price fire. This can’t be said about any other commodity.

This fact distinguishes between a gold and a silver accident. In gold, in a financial meltdown or currency crash (popular reasons given for a gold price accident), world governments own enough gold to extinguish a price explosion. In silver, they don’t own enough silver to put out a fire.

It’s rare to be presented with an unavoidable financial accident that you can personally benefit from. If you find my argument has merit, then position yourself in silver before the coming accident. If you wait until the accident happens, it will be too late. GOOD LUCK!

 

The Bullion Banks Scam

July 14th, 2011 by

 

By Robert Guest

What the bullion banks have done in the past is go short against all incoming long positions coming into the market as the price of gold or silver rises.  Remember it takes a buyer (long) and a seller (short) to complete a transaction in the market.   Once the bullion banks ( read JPMorgan) figure they have all the longs in that they can take to the cleaners they pull their bids.   That means they refuse to take the buyer side of transactions and start dumping some of their long positions.  This puts real pressure on the price as JPMorgans  high frequency traders provide a great deal of the trade volume in the market.  So with a high percentage of the buyers to complete the transaction missing the sellers have to lower their price to attract buyers.   As they continue to have trouble finding willing buyers the price continues to drop. The more the price drops the more sellers are brought into the market as the price drops below where they bought into the market and they want to sell to limit their losses.  When the price goes as low as JPMorgan thinks they can get it they start covering their shorts by placing bids to buy the longs positions that are for sale.  JPMorgans goal is to cover their shorts ( buy long positions to cover the positions they sold short) at a lower price than they originally sold short.  This is the opposite of a long sale where a buyers tries to sell his position at a higher price than he purchased it for to make a profit.   A short covering makes profit when the short sale is covered at a lower price than the original short sale.  Shorting the market is done on margin….the seller borrows the stock and sells it in the hopes of buying it back at a lower price.  If the stock goes up the short seller must pay or meet a margin call on the difference in his original price and the current price or be closed out by his brokerage firm at a loss if he does not have the cash to meet the margin. These forced liquidations to meet a margin call often result in “short covering rallies” that force the price up. The more the price goes up the more short sellers are forced into liquidations…it becomes a vicious self fulfilling rally scenario.   The fed often uses this tactic to start a short covering rally in the broad market when the market is oversold by buying some securities to get the progression started.  When you think about it it really is sad that there are predators in the market that are deliberately taking steps to force the market up and down to take advantage of investors and make profit.  It is not a free market at all as these predators are not buying and selling based on the value or earnings of  the security but simply doing it to force small investors (and some not so small) into a corner where they can be  picked off at the leisure of the high frequency traders. It is very difficult to be a trader as all the supercomputers belong to the high frequency traders making them so much faster than an individual can be.  That makes buying, holding for an extended period about the only way fight them, and yet that has not been a successful strategy the last 10 years unless you bought gold or silver 10 years ago. Most stock indices like the dow or sp500 are below where they were 10 years ago.  Today there are negative ETF products the mirror dow or sp500 and make money when the dow or sp500 goes down in price.  This gives the individual investor a method to make money when  the market goes down in price without having to short the index and take the margin call risks involved in shorting the index or individual stocks.

Obama’s ineligibility: When government declares war on the people

July 8th, 2011 by

 

http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/38281

 

By Lawrence Sellin 

At Lexington and Concord, the American militia was able to stand their ground against oppression because they stockpiled weapons and ammunition, created an effective local intelligence network and had the support of the populace. Those are the fundamentals of a classical insurgency.

In 1964, no one framed the choice better than Ronald Reagan:

“Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far-distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.”

But that was another era. Sadly for our country, Reagan greatly underestimated the corruption, the inexhaustible greed and the endless lust for power of future politicians.

We have an occupant of the White House, who is ineligible to be President, who has likely forged or been complicit in the forgery of official documents and who may be using a stolen Social Security Number.

There is ever increasing evidence of widespread press self-censorship and the altering of online documents to misinform and manipulate the American people in order to protect Barack Obama.

We have a rogue and dangerous Executive Branch and members of Congress who have violated their oaths of office and abdicated their responsibility to support and defend the Constitution and uphold the rule of law.

They are now all co-conspirators attempting to achieve absolute power and corrupt the government absolutely, all of which will eventually lead to the destruction of our republic.

Michael Barone calls it “Gangster Government”, where, in the Chrysler bailout, the Obama administration forced bondholders to accept 33 cents on the dollar on secured debts while giving United Auto Worker (UAW) retirees 50 cents on the dollar on unsecured debts.

That was a clear violation of the ordinary bankruptcy rule that secured creditors are fully paid off before unsecured creditors get anything. The politically connected UAW got preference over politically unconnected bondholders.

Add to that travesty, the destruction of 789 small business, dealer franchises during the Chrysler bankruptcy hearing.

Was that yet another violation of bankruptcy law to benefit the UAW? Why does it seem that Obama and his allies always side with the fat cats over small businesses and ordinary investors?

In his superb exposé “Chrysler Bankruptcy Exposes Dirty Politics”, Declan McCullagh documents the immorality, the breakdown of the rule of law and strong-arm tactics used by some politicians.

He describes how Obama, his allies and Congressional Democrats interfered on behalf of unions (the junior creditors) and publicly upbraided the senior creditors who were asserting their contractual rights.

The UAW has donated $25.4 million to federal politicians over the last two decades, with 99 percent of that cash going to Democrats. Obama’s final 2008 campaign stop on Election Day was a UAW phone bank.

Clifford Asness, managing partner at a $20 billion hedge fund named AQR Capital Management, called it “toxic demagoguery” and says “the president’s attempted diktat takes money from bondholders and gives it to a labor union that delivers money and votes for him.”

The Constitution is being violated and the rule of law eroded to benefit a rich and powerful elite who care not for their country, but only for themselves.

Our elected representatives, our courts and our law enforcement agencies are ignoring our requests for the redress of grievances and investigations of likely law violations.

America no longer has a government beholden to the people.

The Declaration of Independence stated:

“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.”

“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”

It is the dishonest and ruthless people now controlling the reins of power, who are forcing the American people toward a second Lexington and Concord.

It is those politicians and their collaborators, who force us to stand our ground, not against our Constitution, but against their perversion of it and their suppression of our liberty.

In the last paragraph of his 1964 speech, Ronald Reagan also framed our current challenge:

“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children’s children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done.”

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

By now it should be pretty obvious that we have lost control of our lives, property, and future financial security, so bare with me as I reminisce on how this all came about. I was born in 1940 and raised in one of the most prolific propaganda eras in history, and it worked much better than I have been willing to admit……………until now!

Our first television arrived in the fall of forty-eight, at just the right time to bury patriotism deep in my mind. The war movies were fascinating and before I knew it, murder was perfectly acceptable as long as hero’s did the deed. I couldn’t wait to grow up and become a warrior for my country. Had I known what was being done to me by those damn movies I would have taken a sledgehammer to it. Needless to say, it buried a love for America in my mind that has taken years of research to get rid of, and it did the same to millions of other American boy’s. At this point in life it seems ludicrous to love a nation, any nation! Human life is so much more worthy, than millions of square miles of dirt. Loving a country that was presented as a safe haven for freedom was easy to do, and damn hard to undo. The truth is hard to accept, but it is impossible to deny. Now, there is no doubt in my old mind that we are getting exactly what we deserve. Whether you like it or not, we were stupid to worship a nation, instead of God, and those of you who deny being a part of this are in denial, or theologically obtuse.

The chickens have come home to roost, and their crapping all over us.

Can this situation be reversed? Can we quickly raise a nation of young people who have been taught to worship God, and understand the depravity in human nature, with the church so fragmented with apostate doctrine, or even devoid of any doctrine? I don’t think so! There are so few left who know what Christianity really is, and soon they too will be gone. BUT! I am unwilling to bend over and kiss my butt goodbye, so I will keep on fighting the fight because the truth is, I still want America to be what I was told it was, and what I believed it was.

Unfortunately, we are going to have to completely dismantle the old America, in order to make room for fifty miniature America’s like the original plan called for. Only this time, we will protect the minds of our children with a vengeance only total failure could have created. Freedom is not free, and our generation is going to pay a hell of a premium for it. 

The Essential Rules Of Liberty

By Brandon Smith

There is nothing worse in this world than an enslaved man who naively believes himself free, except, perhaps, trying to explain to that same man his predicament. You can lay truth after truth before his feet. You can qualify your every position with cold hard irrefutable data. You can plead and scream and raise veritable hell, but before he will ever listen, he must first become aware of his own dire circumstances. As long as he views himself as “safe and secure”, as long as he imagines his chains to be wings, he will see no reason to question the validity of the world around him, and he will certainly never invest himself into changing his own deluded destiny.

Unfortunately, there are many such men crawling and scraping about here in what was once a land graced with a self sufficient and independently minded public majority. The great lie that has been perpetuated in this country over the past several decades is that we can defer our responsibilities of vigilance and place our well being and our futures into the hands of others for the sake of “collective efficiency”, or leisure. We have been conditioned to live in a state of constant indifference, a society which prizes compromise over principle and steadfast resolve. Those who refuse to compromise that which is honorable for the sake of ease and comfort are indicted as “extremist” or even criminal. The idea of personal revolution is treated with discomfort, and all we claim to stand for becomes muddled in a fog of inaction and cynicism. As Americans, we have forgotten what it means to earn and protect our own freedoms. We have forgotten that in liberty, there are standards that must be defended.

This, however, does not mean we cannot yet again remember ourselves. The desire for freedom is as inborn and natural as our own heartbeat, as our own breath. It is instinct. It cannot be erased from within, only oppressed from without. The tide has always been against tyranny, always, though we may find that hard to believe. If liberty was not ingrained into our very DNA, humanity would have succumbed to bondage and self destructed long ago. This is not the case. Stretching under the surface of our superficial force-fed mainstream culture are the roots of something real, and honest. Simmering beneath our so called “civilized” veneer, many Americans are finally rediscovering their wild and defiant origins. In the recent past we have been taught to feel ashamed of our rebelliousness. Now, we are learning to hold it quite dear.

For those of us who are awake, and for those who are on the verge of understanding, certain rules come into play that strengthen our stance and shield us from folly. Liberty is not a self perpetuating social condition. It requires guidelines, and effort, and sacrifice. Liberty will not survive without our willingness to maintain it. If you are not ready and willing to fight for your own independence, then you are not truly free.

Let’s examine some of the inherent laws and guidelines of free will and free action that will allow us to not only win back our self determination, but to keep it for generations to come. You want liberty? This is what it takes…

Rule #1: Never Take Anything For Granted

A lot of people today seem to have serious issues with expectation and assumption; what we in the alternative media often refer to as “normalcy bias”. We have grown used to the idea of abundance and relative safety. So much so, that we fail to notice when our abundance and safety begin to disappear.We assume that the condition of the world today will be the condition of the world tomorrow, and for all time. In the U.S., we have even come to expect not only that our prosperity and our freedom are inevitable, but that they will also increase exponentially with each passing generation. This is a relatively new and narrow cultural mindset likely caused by the explosion in industrial growth after WWII which seemed to erase all memory of the Great Depression in our society, leaving us with the belief that surely, our circumstances would never become so desperate again.

Those who are truly independent realize that nations, no matter how affluent, can self destruct at a moment’s notice, especially when they fail to recognize their own weaknesses and confront their own demons. Never suppose that that which is good and just will remain without your own initiative. Never wait for others to fix those problems which you could just as easily solve yourself. Never expect that freedoms won cannot also be easily lost. Always prepare for the worst outcome, and strive for the best outcome.

Rule #2: Educate Yourself

Never become a useful idiot, or a waste of oxygen. Being a part of the herd is nothing to be proud of.Strive for knowledge, and thirst for the truth every moment of every day. Many of the things we deem “important” in modern society are in the grand scheme hollow attempts to fill our lives with distraction, only wasting time until we finally bite the dust filled with regret. Pretending to further the depth of one’s life is not the same as actually doing so. I can’t think of anything more horrifying than becoming a man who rushes around frantically every waking moment, but ultimately accomplishes nothing.

Do not assume that you already have a tangible grasp of the truth, especially if all your knowledge has been handed to you. Instead, research that knowledge for yourself. Put that which you have been taught to the test. Only in this way will you finally learn. Expand your horizons. Learn something useful.Remove unnecessary distractions for at least part of your day and focus on increasing your awareness of the environment you live in. There are very few things in this world more important than this, and self education should take precedence over everything else except your family. “Lack of time” is no excuse for ignorance. Make time! The ignorant are led. The knowledgeable lead themselves.

Rule #3: Don’t Be A Pansy

Liberty is not for the faint of heart. Emotional courage is paramount to freedom, and it can be expressed to incredible effect by even the most unlikely heroes. I’ve seen children with more courage and tenacity than some full grown men.

If one recognizes the gravity of the situation we face as a people, if one understands the considerable danger involved in the fall of a Republic to the depths of fear and autocracy, but still does nothing, that person has not only failed the world, he has also failed himself. “Making waves”, or drawing the ire of “authority”, is the least of our worries. If you have utilized an objective eye, and know you are right in your position, then there is no reason to fear criticism from anyone.

Sociopolitical action, nonconformity, noncompliance, and self defense, are unavoidable aspects of a society that wishes to maintain its freedoms. There is no way around it. If you are not willing to stick your neck out and expose yourself to risk, you remove all chance of possible gain. If you are a self proclaimed activist that refuses to sacrifice, that refuses to struggle, then you have failed before you even began. Talk must lead to balanced action. Never thumb your nose at the devil without being ready to trade punches as well, or all is lost.

Rule #4: Stop Waiting For Others To Tell You What To Do

Independent people not only consider and implement the solutions of others, they also work on their own. Complaints abound lately in the Liberty Movement;

“When is someone going to do something!? What are YOU going to do about our predicament!?”

This is the question of a slave, not a free man. A free man asks, “What am I going to do about this predicament? What is MY solution to the problem?” Therein is the key to liberty; decentralized leadership and movements based on fluidity and spontaneity of action, instead of a great mass of people standing around stiffly waiting for orders on high, or a self styled messiah to engineer their world view. As soon as you place your very initiative under the control of others, you have lost the fight.Always consider the solid strategies of intelligent people, and adopt them if they are useful, but do not remain idle because you are too frightened to exert the effort to solve problems bigger than yourself.Spectators only witness history, they do not make history.

Rule #5: Cast Off What Is Unnecessary, Keep What Is Effective

Yes, I stole this rule from Bruce Lee, but it is just as applicable to social movements and economic stability as it is to the martial arts. Invasive debt creation, for instance, is a tool for subversion, and no people forced to bear the burden of liabilities they can never repay is free. Therefore, exorbitant debt must be avoided, or cast off completely.

In our personal lives, how many useless goods do we accumulate on a daily basis, instead of useful items that we may one day desperately need? How much of our life is spent accumulating garbage in order to keep up with “socially acceptable” levels of consumer behavior? How many of us cling to careers we hate in order to service our needless consumption? The ability to prioritize must become a virtue once again, and, we all need to shut off the cable television…

This rule also applies to governments. If a government no longer fulfills its sworn duties to the people, and no longer serves the purposes to which it was originally intended, then it too must be cast off and replaced with one that does serve the people, or, it must be forced to return to its inherent foundations.Today, this kind of talk is often referred to as “extremism”, or insurgency, no matter how correct it might be, which brings us to our next rule…

Rule #6: Ignore Establishment Labels

Tactical name calling is only effective if we actually care what other people think of us. Labels like “homegrown terrorist”, “extremist”, “doomer”, or “conspiracy theorist”, are designed to shame people into self censorship. That is to say, they pigeonhole movements and their participants into categories of public shame, causing said movements to fear social reprisal. They are also meant to forcefully assign “outsider” or “fringe” status to particular political positions in order to marginalize and weaken the resolve of those who hold them. Never mind that almost every powerful and honorable cultural movement in history once started out as “fringe”.

Early in our lives, we are taught that it is far better to be accepted, and to avoid standing out, even at the expense of our individualism. Unfortunately, many adults never outgrow this childish belief, and thus become vulnerable to tactics as absurd as simple ridicule. At bottom, being slandered by a thieving bureaucracy infested with soulless parasites bent on centralization at the expense of innocent human life is a bit laughable (this goes for you too, SPLC). Globalists, along with their media cronies and their think-tank sock puppets, will say ANYTHING to get what they want. Empty words and false labels cannot stop the truth, or a movement driven by the truth.

Rule #7: Cynicism Is The Path To Defeat

It is good to be critical, but not to the point of nihilism. America’s past is riddled with mistakes, bad judgments, horrible crimes, and downright stupidity; that doesn’t mean that the principles on which this country was founded are any less vital. We hear often from cynics that humanity has become too stupid and complacent to do what is right. However, stupidity and complacency are not inherent qualities. That’s an elitist fantasy with no basis in fact. Stupidity and complacency are learned behaviors, and they can be unlearned. What IS inherent is our ability to choose what path we will take.For adherents of liberty, we need only remind people that they have this choice. We can whine and cry all day long about how nobody pays attention and how there is no hope, or, we can exhaust all options before throwing in the proverbial towel. We don’t need to “like” society the way it is, but we do need to recognize the underlying potential of all people to become something much more than what they currently are (I can’t stand blind ignorance either, but I’m certainly not ready to accept it as a fact of American life). Remember, no fight is over until it is over.

Rule #8: True Authority Is Derived From Respect That Is Earned, Not Bought, Or Taken

A corrupt politician is just a criminal conman in a nice suit. A law enforcement officer who refuses to follow Constitutional Law is just a petty little tyrant in a black uniform. An economist who knowingly skews data to fit his own political bias or to serve the political biases of men above him is just a liar or an inept buffoon with an embossed piece of paper from an expensive university. A lab scientist or doctor who flubs experimentation to support the interests of the corporate world rather than the needs of the public is just a quack in a white coat. All too often, though, we find ourselves taking these cretins seriously all because they talk the talk and wear the costume. They are just people, and if they cannot do their jobs honestly, then they are useless people, who deserve our disdain, not our respect. We should never allow such men to wield positions of authority over us.

Rule #9: Take It Personally

When someone tries to steal from you, hurt you, or enslave you, unless you are some kind of nut, you take it pretty personally, right? Why should it be any different when a government commits the same grievances? Americans should be furious over the destruction of their economy, their currency, their infrastructure, and their Constitutional freedoms! They should be enraged over the endless wars overseas that are bankrupting the nation. They should be bellowing to the rooftops over the cooption of their political system by a slimy brood of corporate bankers. Is this “extremist” behavior? Who cares!?If your anger is not visible then it is not worth a damn. Don’t just get active, get emotional! This is about your life, and the lives of those you love. That’s not to say that we should take out our frustrations randomly and haphazardly, but if we can’t at least make known our anger over the misdeeds of government, then what the hell is the point of calling ourselves free?

Rule #10: You Are The First And Last Line Of Defense

Like it our not, this is our job. We have inherited a country on the verge of disaster, and we are tasked with cleaning it up, otherwise, there will be little left to pass on. We do not get to bask in illusory prosperity for the rest of our days. We do not get to feed off the entitlement program trough until we are fat and contented. We are not going to retain our rights without blood, sweat, and tears. We will not be building magical floating cities in the clouds or skyscrapers on Mars. We will NOT be remembered fondly as members of some fantastical “golden era”.

We have been thrust into the muck and the mire. We are being molded as the lost children of an age better forgotten. We have been slapped in the face with a dilemma so volatile and so incredible it may one day be called the greatest crisis of all time. We have drawn the short straw.

This could be viewed as some terrible doom. It could be held as a star crossed act of ferocious fate.We could fall to our knees and lament with despair, overcome with woe at our unbearable lot. But, this would be in violation of rule #3, and nobody wants to be a sobbing pansy. On the contrary, every “bad luck generation” is only so if they refuse to see the great fortune at their fingertips; if they refuse to seize the moment and conquer the giants of their day. The greater the hardship, the greater the enemy, the greater the heroes. We are faced with possibly the most unrelenting antagonists and the most treacherous obstacles in recent memory, or even distant memory. In the same spark of confrontation, we are also presented with unparalleled opportunity to change the course of the world forever. Whether or not we succeed, is entirely up to us.

The Declaration of Independence For Secessionists

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Clearly Mr. Longcore is among the kind of men needed to lead a new State, and help construct a new form of government. He may not be a Thomas Jefferson, but he is close enough to get my vote, which would be a new experience for me, as I have never, and will never, vote in this present tyrannical system.

July 3, 2011

By Thomas Jefferson and Russell D. Longcore

(Editor’s Note: First posted in 2009, this article is one of my most requested articles.)

I recently began contemplating the imminent collapse of the US Federal Government. In light of the insane, unconstitutional spending of the Congress and Presidents (Bush and Obama will spend the same ways), the recession/depression that the nation is presently experiencing, and the simultaneous devaluation and inflation of the nation’s currency, collapse is the only consequence that makes sense.

Ask the Soviet Union. Oh…excuse me…they’re gone! The USSR collapsed from identical causes in 1991, and the Soviet states once again became sovereign nations.

So, what will individuals and states do? Will they preemptively forsake the Union, or wait to react once the Federal Government collapses? Common sense should dictate the serious debate of secession prior to collapse. However, I do remember that the legislatures of the States are filled with politicians. Reaction seems more likely than forward planning, especially from those who have long suckled at the Federal teat.

I took the original Declaration of Independence, written by Thomas Jefferson, and added wording to customize it for the present day. Please read it carefully and contemplate its meaning and its ramifications. My new version still needs more work, but it is a place to start.

**********************

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for a people to dissolve the political and governmental institutions under which they have governed themselves, and institute new government deriving its just powers from the consent of the governed, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the institution of the new form of government.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. To secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their liberty, safety and happiness.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

Such has been the patient sufferance of these free citizens and sovereign states; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present United States Federal Government is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these free citizens and sovereign states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

In 1861, the United States declared war upon the Confederate States of America, a confederation of sovereign states that lawfully seceded from the Union and formed a government to provide new guards for their future security. The CSA was defeated in that war by the armies of the United States and the Union was unlawfully maintained:

The US Federal Government has enacted unconstitutional laws and authorized unconstitutional spending and the creation and funding of unconstitutional Federal agencies. It has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people, and eat out their substance. It has imposed taxes on us without our consent:

The US Federal Government has borrowed so many trillions of dollars that the amount can never be repaid.

The US Federal Government created the Central Intelligence Agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National Security Agency, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, and the Homeland Security Administration, which are unconstitutional usurpations of the powers of the people and the states guaranteed in the 10th Amendment:

The US Federal Government created the Transportation Security Administration, which is a clear violation of the 10th Amendment to the US Constitution. The actions of the TSA violate the 4th Amendment, which protects citizens from illegal search and seizure without warrant based upon probable cause:

The US Federal Government created the Internal Revenue Service to enforce the gigantic Federal Income Tax Code, violating Article I of the Constitution:

The US Federal Government has violated Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution in which Congress may raise and support an army, but no appropriation to that use shall be more than two years. The US Federal Government has established hundreds of military bases on American soil, quartering large bodies of armed troops among us, violating the 3rdAmendment. Additionally, it has established over one hundred military bases in other sovereign nations around the world:

The US Federal Government is at this time retaining large armies of domestic and foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the lawful government of a civilized nation:

The US Federal Government has deprived certain individuals of the benefits of trial by jury by transporting certain individuals beyond seas to be jailed and tortured for pretended offenses, violating the principle of Habeas Corpus and the 5th Amendment of the Constitution:

The US Federal Government has enacted laws infringing upon the right of the people to keep and bear arms, an overt violation of the 2nd Amendment to the Constitution:

The US Federal Government, through enacting the Patriot Act of 2001, has violated the 4th Amendment’s strictures on privacy and protection against illegal search and seizure. It has violated the 5th Amendment guarantees that no person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law:

The US Federal Government, through enacting the Patriot Act of 2001, has violated the 6th Amendment guarantees that in criminal prosecutions, the accused shall the right to a speedy and public trial, be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation, and be confronted by the witnesses against him:

The National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive, signed on May 9, 2007, places all governmental power in the hands of the President and effectively abolishes the checks and balances in the Constitution:

The US Federal Government established the Federal Reserve, a consortium of private banks, to manage and manipulate the currency of the United States. This violates Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution which provides Congress authority to coin money and regulate its value. The Federal Reserve is unconstitutional:

The Federal Reserve has created massive inflation since its inception in 1913 by issuing paper money that has no underlying value in gold and silver. Because of the attempts of the Federal Reserve to manipulate the American economy, it created an abnormal cycle of boom and recession:

In 2008, the US Federal Government approved trillion-dollar financial bailouts to financial institutions and private companies, a clear violation of Article I, Section 8 and the 10th Amendment of the Constitution:

The US Federal Government has prosecuted unlawful and unconstitutional wars, including wars in Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, Bosnia, Kuwait, Iraq and Afghanistan, violating Article I, Section 8, which grants the power to declare war only to Congress:

The US Federal Government created the Social Security Administration in 1935, a clear violation of the Article I, Section 8, and the 10th Amendment:

The US Federal Government, though its Judicial Branch, has altered legislation and created law, in violation of Article III of the Constitution:

The US Federal Government has obligated the United States to membership in the United Nations, and combined with other nations to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution, and superior by treaty to our laws; giving its assent to their acts of pretended legislation:

The US Federal Government has usurped the powers reserved to the States in the 10th Amendment as it relates to immigration and naturalization. It has obstructed the laws for naturalization of foreigners, refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and altered the conditions of lawful immigration of foreign persons:

The US Federal Government has altered fundamentally the forms of our government guaranteed to the free citizens and states by the Constitution of the united States of America.

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. An institution of government, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define tyranny, is unfit to be the designated and chosen government of a free people.

Nor have we been wanting in attention to the Legislative, Executive and Judicial Branches of the United States Federal Government. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their actions 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 citizenship to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt the quiet enjoyment of our citizenship and liberty. They 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.

We, therefore, the free citizens of the several, sovereign and united States of America, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do solemnly publish and declare, that these States are, and of right ought to be free and independent states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the presently established United States Federal Government, and that all political connection between them and the United States Federal Government, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as free and independent States, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts and things which independent States may of right do. The free citizens of the several, sovereign states reject and absolve themselves from any and all bonds between themselves and any other sovereign state under the Constitution of the United States. Those free citizens and their representatives in the sovereign States do now and should immediately cease collecting and forwarding all Federal taxes, tariffs or fees of any and every kind to the United States Federal Government.

And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

End.

DOES RAGE JUSTIFY MURDER?

July 5th, 2011 by

Http://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com

 

By James P. Harvey

 

One can safely assume that in many cases rage and murder our joined at the hip, and in some cases, the reason for the rage provides justification for the murder. In other cases, murder is committed with no rage at all, just a cold calculation that it will result in profit of some kind. Without the moral roadblock of Christianity the traffic in murder becomes epidemic. One needs only to read the daily paper to confirm this statement.

As I write this the United States Government is killing thousands of people under the orders of their Banker masters for no other reason than monetary profit, and has been since the get go. Yet we peons celebrate these atrocities as if it was the direct instructions of God. So much for, “Thou shalt not kill”.

 If you counter that God has instructed past leaders to kill, and sometimes in the most barbaric fashion, you would be correct, but to assume that God is talking directly to any of Americas leaders is really stretching cognition to the breaking point.

What has contributed to this acceptance of government murder among the peons, besides a lifetime association with murder as entertainment? One can only wonder how Americans can dare show their face in worship, while consistently supporting murderers in government. One can also wonder how any preacher can be theologically obtuse enough to fan the flames of government murder.

Unless someone has committed an atrocity that begets rage, and the evidence is unmistakable, I contend that absent direct orders from God, there is no justification for murder, and even what appears to be unmistakable evidence, or direct orders from God, must be thoroughly examined.

This is why God established governments among men, so that truth will prevail, and justice be served. What kind of lunatic would justify a government that murders for profit, even when the supporting majority is intellectually underdeveloped? Has humanity lost the basic instinct of compassion? Have American’s lost all common sense?

Did Jesus say “go and spread democracy over the whole earth? IT DOESN’T IN MY BIBLE’S, and I have all the translations. So, any Christian acceptance of government murder is lacking any biblical support, and only government manipulated RAGE must be the cause of Christian involvement.

This can only mean that American’s are intellectually incapable of inspecting the evidence, or there is evil in their soul, and probably both. Another great tragedy that confounds me is, why do Americans, especially Christians need some National Hero to serve as their leader? What is wrong with being served by an intellectually superior group of History scholars? Erudite Men and Women who can articulate lessons learned from history, and present alternatives to those mistakes of past governments. Why have American’s not demanded that all government leaders must first publish their comprehension of the laws and morals they will adhere to? Since the oath of office has become meaningless, why don’t we insist that all government leaders sign a contractual oath of performance, with clearly defined objectives, rewards, and penalties? If a man or woman cannot clearly articulate in writing and speaking how they perceive the Nation’s needs, and also clearly explain their proposed solutions to Problems, why would any thinking person support them? I conclude that America is sorely short of thinkers, and has a pandemic of self-serving ignoramuses’.

One can also construct a convincing argument that the learning disabilities so prevalent in America are the result of government planning. Ignorant people are so much easier to manage and control. But then again, what kind of intelligence is needed to perceive danger? Do people need to be educated to perceive personal danger, or is it a natural intellectual attribute? If people who borrow money from a loan shark with no intension of paying the debt need an education to prevent that mistake, then God help us. If people need an education to prevent them from strolling on a busy interstate highway, then God help them. What the hell has happened to the American comprehension of danger? Continuing to support this federal rogue government is ludicrous!

We have abandoned God, logic, and common sense in our pursuit of profit.

Money is not the only, or even a justified objective of labor, investment, or any other pursuit. Personal safety is, or should be our instinctual objective.

Now back to RAGE, and its necessity for justification of murder.

Can any learned person object to the murder of all of the international bankers, when their exploits are so well documented? Does their exploits not justify Rage? Where is there a Grand Jury that will investigate the banker’s atrocities and indict them for crimes against humanity? There is no other group of people in all of history more deserving of murder than these scumbags, and the entire population of America is sitting on their ass and allowing it to escalate. With each passing second we the people are being murdered by this evil leviathan called central banking. Its monstrosities are legendary and the most putrid example of human action. Yet, where is the cry for revenge? Where is the person who will stand up and shout “YOU ARE FOUL AND DESERVING OF DEATH?” Even Present Kennedy did not have the good sense to construct a grand jury, and instead tried to beat them at their own game and print our own money. Like Lincoln, he paid with his life for that mistake, and the cover-up that followed should have ignited a raging storm of protest, but Americans sat on their ass and accepted the bankers sovereign right to murder. If they can do it, why the hell can’t our government murder them, unless of course our government is controlled by them? Go ahead sheeple, and vote for another hero, and I guarantee you the world will not forget, or forgive our cowardly acceptance of this tyranny. We personally will suffer the consequences of our blind acceptance of these scumbags as our leaders.

Unless a hundred million Americans understand that, and become enraged enough to take action that will result in the International Bankers being indicted, prosecuted, and murdered for their global genocide, then we are the dumbest of humanity and deserving of the coming destruction.

America, the land of the free, and the home of the brave, my ass!

 

 

 

How Bushs grandfather helped Hitlers rise to power

July 3rd, 2011 by

 

George Bush and Grandfather Prescott Bush

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2004/sep/25/usa.secondworldwar

Rumours of a link between the US first family and the Nazi war machine have circulated for decades. Now the Guardian can reveal how repercussions of events that culminated in action under the Trading with the Enemy Act are still being felt by today's president

George Bush's grandfather, the late US senator Prescott Bush, was a director and shareholder of companies that profited from their involvement with the financial backers of Nazi Germany.

The Guardian has obtained confirmation from newly discovered files in the US National Archives that a firm of which Prescott Bush was a director was involved with the financial architects of Nazism.

His business dealings, which continued until his company's assets were seized in 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy Act, has led more than 60 years later to a civil action for damages being brought in Germany against the Bush family by two former slave labourers at Auschwitz and to a hum of pre-election controversy.

The evidence has also prompted one former US Nazi war crimes prosecutor to argue that the late senator's action should have been grounds for prosecution for giving aid and comfort to the enemy.

The debate over Prescott Bush's behaviour has been bubbling under the surface for some time. There has been a steady internet chatter about the "Bush/Nazi" connection, much of it inaccurate and unfair. But the new documents, many of which were only declassified last year, show that even after America had entered the war and when there was already significant information about the Nazis' plans and policies, he worked for and profited from companies closely involved with the very German businesses that financed Hitler's rise to power. It has also been suggested that the money he made from these dealings helped to establish the Bush family fortune and set up its political dynasty.

Remarkably, little of Bush's dealings with Germany has received public scrutiny, partly because of the secret status of the documentation involving him. But now the multibillion dollar legal action for damages by two Holocaust survivors against the Bush family, and the imminent publication of three books on the subject are threatening to make Prescott Bush's business history an uncomfortable issue for his grandson, George W, as he seeks re-election.

While there is no suggestion that Prescott Bush was sympathetic to the Nazi cause, the documents reveal that the firm he worked for, Brown Brothers Harriman (BBH), acted as a US base for the German industrialist, Fritz Thyssen, who helped finance Hitler in the 1930s before falling out with him at the end of the decade. The Guardian has seen evidence that shows Bush was the director of the New York-based Union Banking Corporation (UBC) that represented Thyssen's US interests and he continued to work for the bank after America entered the war.

Tantalising

Bush was also on the board of at least one of the companies that formed part of a multinational network of front companies to allow Thyssen to move assets around the world.

Thyssen owned the largest steel and coal company in Germany and grew rich from Hitler's efforts to re-arm between the two world wars. One of the pillars in Thyssen's international corporate web, UBC, worked exclusively for, and was owned by, a Thyssen-controlled bank in the Netherlands. More tantalising are Bush's links to the Consolidated Silesian Steel Company (CSSC), based in mineral rich Silesia on the German-Polish border. During the war, the company made use of Nazi slave labour from the concentration camps, including Auschwitz. The ownership of CSSC changed hands several times in the 1930s, but documents from the US National Archive declassified last year link Bush to CSSC, although it is not clear if he and UBC were still involved in the company when Thyssen's American assets were seized in 1942.

Three sets of archives spell out Prescott Bush's involvement. All three are readily available, thanks to the efficient US archive system and a helpful and dedicated staff at both the Library of Congress in Washington and the National Archives at the University of Maryland.

The first set of files, the Harriman papers in the Library of Congress, show that Prescott Bush was a director and shareholder of a number of companies involved with Thyssen.

The second set of papers, which are in the National Archives, are contained in vesting order number 248 which records the seizure of the company assets. What these files show is that on October 20 1942 the alien property custodian seized the assets of the UBC, of which Prescott Bush was a director. Having gone through the books of the bank, further seizures were made against two affiliates, the Holland-American Trading Corporation and the Seamless Steel Equipment Corporation. By November, the Silesian-American Company, another of Prescott Bush's ventures, had also been seized.

The third set of documents, also at the National Archives, are contained in the files on IG Farben, who was prosecuted for war crimes.

A report issued by the Office of Alien Property Custodian in 1942 stated of the companies that "since 1939, these (steel and mining) properties have been in possession of and have been operated by the German government and have undoubtedly been of considerable assistance to that country's war effort".

Prescott Bush, a 6ft 4in charmer with a rich singing voice, was the founder of the Bush political dynasty and was once considered a potential presidential candidate himself. Like his son, George, and grandson, George W, he went to Yale where he was, again like his descendants, a member of the secretive and influential Skull and Bones student society. He was an artillery captain in the first world war and married Dorothy Walker, the daughter of George Herbert Walker, in 1921.

In 1924, his father-in-law, a well-known St Louis investment banker, helped set him up in business in New York with Averill Harriman, the wealthy son of railroad magnate E H Harriman in New York, who had gone into banking.

One of the first jobs Walker gave Bush was to manage UBC. Bush was a founding member of the bank and the incorporation documents, which list him as one of seven directors, show he owned one share in UBC worth $125.

The bank was set up by Harriman and Bush's father-in-law to provide a US bank for the Thyssens, Germany's most powerful industrial family.

August Thyssen, the founder of the dynasty had been a major contributor to Germany's first world war effort and in the 1920s, he and his sons Fritz and Heinrich established a network of overseas banks and companies so their assets and money could be whisked offshore if threatened again.

By the time Fritz Thyssen inherited the business empire in 1926, Germany's economic recovery was faltering. After hearing Adolf Hitler speak, Thyssen became mesmerised by the young firebrand. He joined the Nazi party in December 1931 and admits backing Hitler in his autobiography, I Paid Hitler, when the National Socialists were still a radical fringe party. He stepped in several times to bail out the struggling party: in 1928 Thyssen had bought the Barlow Palace on Briennerstrasse, in Munich, which Hitler converted into the Brown House, the headquarters of the Nazi party. The money came from another Thyssen overseas institution, the Bank voor Handel en Scheepvarrt in Rotterdam.

By the late 1930s, Brown Brothers Harriman, which claimed to be the world's largest private investment bank, and UBC had bought and shipped millions of dollars of gold, fuel, steel, coal and US treasury bonds to Germany, both feeding and financing Hitler's build-up to war.

Between 1931 and 1933 UBC bought more than $8m worth of gold, of which $3m was shipped abroad. According to documents seen by the Guardian, after UBC was set up it transferred $2m to BBH accounts and between 1924 and 1940 the assets of UBC hovered around $3m, dropping to $1m only on a few occasions.

In 1941, Thyssen fled Germany after falling out with Hitler but he was captured in France and detained for the remainder of the war.

There was nothing illegal in doing business with the Thyssens throughout the 1930s and many of America's best-known business names invested heavily in the German economic recovery. However, everything changed after Germany invaded Poland in 1939. Even then it could be argued that BBH was within its rights continuing business relations with the Thyssens until the end of 1941 as the US was still technically neutral until the attack on Pearl Harbor. The trouble started on July 30 1942 when the New York Herald-Tribune ran an article entitled "Hitler's Angel Has $3m in US Bank". UBC's huge gold purchases had raised suspicions that the bank was in fact a "secret nest egg" hidden in New York for Thyssen and other Nazi bigwigs. The Alien Property Commission (APC) launched an investigation.

There is no dispute over the fact that the US government seized a string of assets controlled by BBH – including UBC and SAC – in the autumn of 1942 under the Trading with the Enemy act. What is in dispute is if Harriman, Walker and Bush did more than own these companies on paper.

Erwin May, a treasury attache and officer for the department of investigation in the APC, was assigned to look into UBC's business. The first fact to emerge was that Roland Harriman, Prescott Bush and the other directors didn't actually own their shares in UBC but merely held them on behalf of Bank voor Handel. Strangely, no one seemed to know who owned the Rotterdam-based bank, including UBC's president.

May wrote in his report of August 16 1941: "Union Banking Corporation, incorporated August 4 1924, is wholly owned by the Bank voor Handel en Scheepvaart N.V of Rotterdam, the Netherlands. My investigation has produced no evidence as to the ownership of the Dutch bank. Mr Cornelis [sic] Lievense, president of UBC, claims no knowledge as to the ownership of the Bank voor Handel but believes it possible that Baron Heinrich Thyssen, brother of Fritz Thyssen, may own a substantial interest."

May cleared the bank of holding a golden nest egg for the Nazi leaders but went on to describe a network of companies spreading out from UBC across Europe, America and Canada, and how money from voor Handel travelled to these companies through UBC.

By September May had traced the origins of the non-American board members and found that Dutchman HJ Kouwenhoven – who met with Harriman in 1924 to set up UBC – had several other jobs: in addition to being the managing director of voor Handel he was also the director of the August Thyssen bank in Berlin and a director of Fritz Thyssen's Union Steel Works, the holding company that controlled Thyssen's steel and coal mine empire in Germany.

Within a few weeks, Homer Jones, the chief of the APC investigation and research division sent a memo to the executive committee of APC recommending the US government vest UBC and its assets. Jones named the directors of the bank in the memo, including Prescott Bush's name, and wrote: "Said stock is held by the above named individuals, however, solely as nominees for the Bank voor Handel, Rotterdam, Holland, which is owned by one or more of the Thyssen family, nationals of Germany and Hungary. The 4,000 shares hereinbefore set out are therefore beneficially owned and help for the interests of enemy nationals, and are vestible by the APC," according to the memo from the National Archives seen by the Guardian.

Red-handed

Jones recommended that the assets be liquidated for the benefit of the government, but instead UBC was maintained intact and eventually returned to the American shareholders after the war. Some claim that Bush sold his share in UBC after the war for $1.5m – a huge amount of money at the time – but there is no documentary evidence to support this claim. No further action was ever taken nor was the investigation continued, despite the fact UBC was caught red-handed operating a American shell company for the Thyssen family eight months after America had entered the war and that this was the bank that had partly financed Hitler's rise to power.

The most tantalising part of the story remains shrouded in mystery: the connection, if any, between Prescott Bush, Thyssen, Consolidated Silesian Steel Company (CSSC) and Auschwitz.

Thyssen's partner in United Steel Works, which had coal mines and steel plants across the region, was Friedrich Flick, another steel magnate who also owned part of IG Farben, the powerful German chemical company.

Flick's plants in Poland made heavy use of slave labour from the concentration camps in Poland. According to a New York Times article published in March 18 1934 Flick owned two-thirds of CSSC while "American interests" held the rest.

The US National Archive documents show that BBH's involvement with CSSC was more than simply holding the shares in the mid-1930s. Bush's friend and fellow "bonesman" Knight Woolley, another partner at BBH, wrote to Averill Harriman in January 1933 warning of problems with CSSC after the Poles started their drive to nationalise the plant. "The Consolidated Silesian Steel Company situation has become increasingly complicated, and I have accordingly brought in Sullivan and Cromwell, in order to be sure that our interests are protected," wrote Knight. "After studying the situation Foster Dulles is insisting that their man in Berlin get into the picture and obtain the information which the directors here should have. You will recall that Foster is a director and he is particularly anxious to be certain that there is no liability attaching to the American directors."

But the ownership of the CSSC between 1939 when the Germans invaded Poland and 1942 when the US government vested UBC and SAC is not clear.

"SAC held coal mines and definitely owned CSSC between 1934 and 1935, but when SAC was vested there was no trace of CSSC. All concrete evidence of its ownership disappears after 1935 and there are only a few traces in 1938 and 1939," says Eva Schweitzer, the journalist and author whose book, America and the Holocaust, is published next month.

Silesia was quickly made part of the German Reich after the invasion, but while Polish factories were seized by the Nazis, those belonging to the still neutral Americans (and some other nationals) were treated more carefully as Hitler was still hoping to persuade the US to at least sit out the war as a neutral country. Schweitzer says American interests were dealt with on a case-by-case basis. The Nazis bought some out, but not others.

The two Holocaust survivors suing the US government and the Bush family for a total of $40bn in compensation claim both materially benefited from Auschwitz slave labour during the second world war.

Kurt Julius Goldstein, 87, and Peter Gingold, 85, began a class action in America in 2001, but the case was thrown out by Judge Rosemary Collier on the grounds that the government cannot be held liable under the principle of "state sovereignty".

Jan Lissmann, one of the lawyers for the survivors, said: "President Bush withdrew President Bill Clinton's signature from the treaty [that founded the court] not only to protect Americans, but also to protect himself and his family."

Lissmann argues that genocide-related cases are covered by international law, which does hold governments accountable for their actions. He claims the ruling was invalid as no hearing took place.

In their claims, Mr Goldstein and Mr Gingold, honorary chairman of the League of Anti-fascists, suggest the Americans were aware of what was happening at Auschwitz and should have bombed the camp.

The lawyers also filed a motion in The Hague asking for an opinion on whether state sovereignty is a valid reason for refusing to hear their case. A ruling is expected within a month.

The petition to The Hague states: "From April 1944 on, the American Air Force could have destroyed the camp with air raids, as well as the railway bridges and railway lines from Hungary to Auschwitz. The murder of about 400,000 Hungarian Holocaust victims could have been prevented."

The case is built around a January 22 1944 executive order signed by President Franklin Roosevelt calling on the government to take all measures to rescue the European Jews. The lawyers claim the order was ignored because of pressure brought by a group of big American companies, including BBH, where Prescott Bush was a director.

Lissmann said: "If we have a positive ruling from the court it will cause [president] Bush huge problems and make him personally liable to pay compensation."

The US government and the Bush family deny all the claims against them.

In addition to Eva Schweitzer's book, two other books are about to be published that raise the subject of Prescott Bush's business history. The author of the second book, to be published next year, John Loftus, is a former US attorney who prosecuted Nazi war criminals in the 70s. Now living in St Petersburg, Florida and earning his living as a security commentator for Fox News and ABC radio, Loftus is working on a novel which uses some of the material he has uncovered on Bush. Loftus stressed that what Prescott Bush was involved in was just what many other American and British businessmen were doing at the time.

"You can't blame Bush for what his grandfather did any more than you can blame Jack Kennedy for what his father did – bought Nazi stocks – but what is important is the cover-up, how it could have gone on so successfully for half a century, and does that have implications for us today?" he said.

"This was the mechanism by which Hitler was funded to come to power, this was the mechanism by which the Third Reich's defence industry was re-armed, this was the mechanism by which Nazi profits were repatriated back to the American owners, this was the mechanism by which investigations into the financial laundering of the Third Reich were blunted," said Loftus, who is vice-chairman of the Holocaust Museum in St Petersburg.

"The Union Banking Corporation was a holding company for the Nazis, for Fritz Thyssen," said Loftus. "At various times, the Bush family has tried to spin it, saying they were owned by a Dutch bank and it wasn't until the Nazis took over Holland that they realised that now the Nazis controlled the apparent company and that is why the Bush supporters claim when the war was over they got their money back. Both the American treasury investigations and the intelligence investigations in Europe completely bely that, it's absolute horseshit. They always knew who the ultimate beneficiaries were."

"There is no one left alive who could be prosecuted but they did get away with it," said Loftus. "As a former federal prosecutor, I would make a case for Prescott Bush, his father-in-law (George Walker) and Averill Harriman [to be prosecuted] for giving aid and comfort to the enemy. They remained on the boards of these companies knowing that they were of financial benefit to the nation of Germany."

Loftus said Prescott Bush must have been aware of what was happening in Germany at the time. "My take on him was that he was a not terribly successful in-law who did what Herbert Walker told him to. Walker and Harriman were the two evil geniuses, they didn't care about the Nazis any more than they cared about their investments with the Bolsheviks."

What is also at issue is how much money Bush made from his involvement. His supporters suggest that he had one token share. Loftus disputes this, citing sources in "the banking and intelligence communities" and suggesting that the Bush family, through George Herbert Walker and Prescott, got $1.5m out of the involvement. There is, however, no paper trail to this sum.

The third person going into print on the subject is John Buchanan, 54, a Miami-based magazine journalist who started examining the files while working on a screenplay. Last year, Buchanan published his findings in the venerable but small-circulation New Hampshire Gazette under the headline "Documents in National Archives Prove George Bush's Grandfather Traded With the Nazis – Even After Pearl Harbor". He expands on this in his book to be published next month – Fixing America: Breaking the Stranglehold of Corporate Rule, Big Media and the Religious Right.

In the article, Buchanan, who has worked mainly in the trade and music press with a spell as a muckraking reporter in Miami, claimed that "the essential facts have appeared on the internet and in relatively obscure books but were dismissed by the media and Bush family as undocumented diatribes".

Buchanan suffers from hypermania, a form of manic depression, and when he found himself rebuffed in his initial efforts to interest the media, he responded with a series of threats against the journalists and media outlets that had spurned him. The threats, contained in e-mails, suggested that he would expose the journalists as "traitors to the truth".

Unsurprisingly, he soon had difficulty getting his calls returned. Most seriously, he faced aggravated stalking charges in Miami, in connection with a man with whom he had fallen out over the best way to publicise his findings. The charges were dropped last month.

Biography

Buchanan said he regretted his behaviour had damaged his credibility but his main aim was to secure publicity for the story. Both Loftus and Schweitzer say Buchanan has come up with previously undisclosed documentation.

The Bush family have largely responded with no comment to any reference to Prescott Bush. Brown Brothers Harriman also declined to comment.

The Bush family recently approved a flattering biography of Prescott Bush entitled Duty, Honour, Country by Mickey Herskowitz. The publishers, Rutledge Hill Press, promised the book would "deal honestly with Prescott Bush's alleged business relationships with Nazi industrialists and other accusations".

In fact, the allegations are dealt with in less than two pages. The book refers to the Herald-Tribune story by saying that "a person of less established ethics would have panicked … Bush and his partners at Brown Brothers Harriman informed the government regulators that the account, opened in the late 1930s, was 'an unpaid courtesy for a client' … Prescott Bush acted quickly and openly on behalf of the firm, served well by a reputation that had never been compromised. He made available all records and all documents. Viewed six decades later in the era of serial corporate scandals and shattered careers, he received what can be viewed as the ultimate clean bill."

The Prescott Bush story has been condemned by both conservatives and some liberals as having nothing to do with the current president. It has also been suggested that Prescott Bush had little to do with Averill Harriman and that the two men opposed each other politically.

However, documents from the Harriman papers include a flattering wartime profile of Harriman in the New York Journal American and next to it in the files is a letter to the financial editor of that paper from Prescott Bush congratulating the paper for running the profile. He added that Harriman's "performance and his whole attitude has been a source of inspiration and pride to his partners and his friends".

The Anti-Defamation League in the US is supportive of Prescott Bush and the Bush family. In a statement last year they said that "rumours about the alleged Nazi 'ties' of the late Prescott Bush … have circulated widely through the internet in recent years. These charges are untenable and politically motivated … Prescott Bush was neither a Nazi nor a Nazi sympathiser."

However, one of the country's oldest Jewish publications, the Jewish Advocate, has aired the controversy in detail.

More than 60 years after Prescott Bush came briefly under scrutiny at the time of a faraway war, his grandson is facing a different kind of scrutiny but one underpinned by the same perception that, for some people, war can be a profitable business.

 

The Fed Rearranges the Chairs on the Titanic Economy

By Bob Chapman

July 2 2011: World markets set to break loose this year, pressure by insiders is building, Oil trending higher, two sets of stats, no end it sight for Greek tragedy, the credit crisis of 2008 largely unrepaired, credit ratings groups in US rejected by German banking association, reasons compound in favor of gold and silver.

World markets and especially US markets are in a state of uneasiness and it is only a matter of time before they degenerate further. The real question is will everything break loose between now and the end of the year? The answer in part is yes, and it is currently in process.

“The President’s Working Group on Financial Markets,” along with elitist insiders normally have the ability to make the stock and bond markets do what they want them to. That is, at least on a short-term basis. We believe the market is being deliberately taken down by them in order to impress upon politicians that if they do not extend the short-term cash debt limit that the market will fall even further and that in turn will reduce their ability to get reelected. If you do not think that is possible then you have no idea what is going on. At the present time with about a month to the August 2nd deadline the two political parties are nowhere near an agreement. As we draw closer to the deadline investors will become more and more concerned and the market will trend lower.

The problems that we predicted for the second half of the year are all coming together like a bad dream. This could very well be a reply of 2008, but for a different set of reasons. Obviously, Wall Street knows something others do not know as they resort to large layoffs.

For months oil prices have tended higher. The official CPI is 3.6% when in reality it is well over 10%. Unemployment officially under U3 is 9.1%, when in reality it is 22.6%.

No solution has been found for Greece’s problems, even though an agreement has been made with lenders, and as an extension of that, we see euro, euro zone and European Union problems that probably are unsolvable.

Debt ratings for sovereign nations are falling like ten-pins, which we look at very skeptically. Why were not these ratings reduced by rating agencies some time ago? We see the rating agencies, as controlled by Wall Street, and we see no coincidence that these ratings are all being lowered almost simultaneously. We think these events are being timed to force debtor European nations to heel to European bankers’ demands. By example, it is obviously the intention of Europe’s Black Nobility, which controls such banking, to rape Greece financially and enter it into financial bondage for years to come and they intend as well to render the other five hopeless EU members into the same position.

Little has been done to repair the damage done by the credit crisis, which began in 2008. The financial sector and government has temporarily been kept from failure, but little else has been done. The situations in Europe and the UK are no better. Failure of a debt extension and or default by Greece could lead to a collapse of the world financial system, as we know it. The long-term looting by the Fed, the Bank of England, and many others, day-by-day is being exposed to the public by talk radio and the Internet and the elitists are powerless to stop it. We’d say it won’t be long before the whole world knows what they have been up too for a long time. The exposure of these facts is affecting public confidence and many are saying, are we next? The entire financial sectors in the US, UK and Europe are now more vulnerable than ever and by the looks of recent economic reports things are looking worse. That is why Greece or debt extension is so important. Their failure could trigger panic. The Democrats in the US House are playing chicken and if a deal is not reached there will be no extension. Further to this China is slowing down and has major inflation problems and a real estate bubble and Japan has been devastated.

As we predicted the Feds will spend $900 billion in their QE2 program. It has injected $2.3 trillion into the financial system September of 2008. The federal government has added $1.7 trillion for a total of $4 trillion and no recovery has appeared. Over the next year $112 billion of the Fed’s government bond holdings will mature and they will use those funds to roll Treasury paper.

The Fed as well holds $914 billion in mortgage backed debt known as toxic waste, and $118 billion of debentures from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. They will maintain these levels until September. In July and August plans will be put in place to again increase money and credit in order to assist in the Treasury and agency markets and replace funds, some $850 billion that will not be forthcoming from Congress.

Real unemployment is 22.6%. That should move up to 22.8% to 23% by the end of the year.

The two political parties have been meeting for two months and have accomplished very little regarding the cash debt extension. If no compromise is reached the US credit rating will probably be lowered and interest rates will rise. Zero interest rates are still currently in place. It is not a pretty picture. As we predicted in May 2010, the second half of 2011 is going to fraught with problems.

Wall Street sees what we see, but they are not going to tell you what we will tell you. Their direction and thought process is what you have to watch. Why would the securities and banking business be planning big layoffs and payroll cutbacks? They obviously believe markets are headed lower and they see plenty of problems ahead. Wall Street is pessimistic and they should be because they see what we see. Except for gold and silver shares get out of the market as fast as you possibly can.

Food prices will probably double again over the year and OPEC says they will not raise oil production. That means over the next year oil should trade between $85 and $120 a barrel, barring any unusual events. This means based on QE2inflation should reach 25% to 30% next year.

In spite of financial problems in the UK and Europe the dollar is still unable to gain against other currencies in any meaningful way. That is understandable, considering a possible downgrade of US debt and a recent statement by Moody’s to downgrade the debt of Wells Fargo, Citigroup and Bank of America. As of late bank stocks have been hit hard and that is not a good omen. Bank stocks led the downside in 2008.

The residential real estate market is off 5% year-on-year, as new home sales soften and existing sales go nowhere. We see another 10% to 20% price drop this and next year. Even when prices bottom, how long will it be before there is a recovery, perhaps ten or twenty years? If you didn’t notice consumer confidence is lower now than it was in late 2008.

Even though Greece made a deal their second bailout would probably only last another year. The case for this kind of rescue is very weak. In the final analysis Greece has to go bankrupt along with the other five problem nations. That in turn will kill the euro and the European, UK and US banking systems. Very few people realize how serious this is, even professionals.

Complicating matters Moody’s just lowered the outlook for 13 Italian banks, and said 16 others could have downgrades as well. The German banking association said last week they would no longer accept the ratings of Moody’s, S&P and Fitch because their ratings are bogus and are used politically by Wall Street and US banking. Sometime ago China said the same thing. As a result of pressures in Spain and Italy, the ECB is flashing a red alert signal. More trouble is on the way. Needless to say, yields on bonds in problem countries are climbing, as are the costs for credit default swaps. Contagion is spreading and sooner or later it will affect the lender countries as well. These conditions will also lead to a tightening of liquidity.

Greece’s public debt as a percentage of GDP is 143% and Italy isn’t far behind with 119%. As contagion moves forward from Greece higher borrowing costs will prevail as countries like Italy, Spain, Ireland and Portugal have to rollover their debt, along with contagion comes a change in sentiment, which causes contraction, which could spread worldwide, as liquidity finds its way into gold, silver and commodities.

All nations have to have sustainable growth to produce rising tax revenues to service existing and new debt. That hasn’t and is not happening and with the policies being implemented it won’t happen in the future. Governments and central banks are only interested in funding and saving corrupt and bankrupt governments, financial sectors and select transnational conglomerates. These selective rescues are accompanied by the drums and dark clouds of war, which are deliberately created to distract the world populace. Who worries about debt solvency when you may be dead tomorrow? Without such a distraction economic and financial problems move to the forefront and that is the last thing the elitists want to happen. The public has to be kept dumb and stupid, otherwise they cannot be bilked out of everything they have worked for in their lifetime. That era is coming to an end, because people are being told the truth about who is doing what to them and why via talk radio, that now spans the globe and via the Internet as well. We are seeing the results of that in Greece today and many more countries will follow, including the US. The people of the world will eventually end this reign of banker tyranny, because they will have been educated and will have discovered the truth. Too big to fail will be cast into the dustbin of history.

The antithesis of central banks and fiat currencies are gold and silver, which have acted in the capacity as the only real money for 6,000 years. This has become even more apparent over the past 11 years. After having exited the stock market in the second week of April 2000, we told subscribers in June 2000 to begin accumulating gold and silver coins, bullion and shares. Since then, vs. nine major currencies,every year gold and silver have appreciated more than 20% annually. During that period the stock market has fallen on average 20% annually. The concentrated central bank selling of gold since 1988 has been staggering, but there were many willing buyers and during that period gold rose from $260 to $1,550 and silver from $3.50 to $50.00. The elitists impeded the upward movement in these metals to keep them from reaching their true value, but they still performed admirably. Over that time period many sovereign nations have been accumulating gold and continue to do so. Inflation began its current rise 11 years ago as the Fed and other central banks were forced to offset the deflationary effects in the fall in the stock market and then the collapse in the real estate markets, bubbles that the fed deliberately created to keep the economy from collapsing. Money and credit creation are the antithesis of deflation. This is how we arrived at where we are today. The surge of QE1 and QE2 and stimulus 1 and 2 have been the latest manifestation of wild liquidity creation, which will soon turn into high gear as quantitative easing 3.

The money war is well underway and fiat currencies are losing to gold and silver and that will continue. All the attempts to discredit gold and silver have not deterred some investors from buying these precious metals. The result is that official above ground inventories have been reduced to the extent that very little is left to impede the upward movement of these metals, especially silver. At the same time demand continues unabated and new supplies of these metals from the earth falters, as large ore bodies become harder and harder to locate and more expensive to mine due to persistent inflation caused by central banks. All the increases in margin requirements in the long run will not deter the upward path of these metals, nor will the use of paper derivatives block the long-term assent of these metals. The recently discovered rules in the Dodd-Frank Bill to reduce leverage on margined transactions will do little to discourage speculators. They will just move from Forex to another exchange and contrary to dumb sensationalist notices that this may lead to the end of the physical gold and silver trade and the purchase of shares are totally without foundation. We question the reasons why persons would concoct such extravagant fairy tales? Supplies of physical gold and silver are disappearing and the elitists are trying to chase speculators out of the market depressing prices and stopping a desire for delivery. They are going to discover that their efforts will be unsuccessful, as will their concentrated short positions that the CFTC and our government refuses to do anything about, because they have engineered the suppressions, which they are finding are not working. Obviously, today there are big hitters in these markets and they are undeterred by the manipulation and use of excessive margin requirements. That means in the future the effect of market manipulation will end and free markets will return.

It will be another four months before Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke meets the press again to tell America what has transpired in the ensuing time frame. The Fed can do as it pleases and the public will know little about its operations to save its bogus balance sheet. Events are increasing in velocity. There are reportings by states and municipalities concerning their financial positions, whether there will be a QE3 after September, after the Fed’s $900 billion has been exhausted and will Congress supply a short-term debt extension on August 2nd. These are major events and should be watched closely. At least for the next year the Greek problem has been neutralized, but not solved. That is if Greece does not have a revolution, as a result of that vote. Due to talk radio and the Internet exposure the Greek people know that the banks are financial terrorists and that it is the banker’s intent to steal as much of Greece as they can. At least for the moment there will not be a Greek default. The grievous losses by European, UK and US banks have been kicked down the road probably for the next year, but it will be interesting to see what will be attempted, if anything, to augment a slowing world economy. Europe now is the media’s focus of attention even though enabling legislation has been past. The sovereign debt problems have not and will not go away. It is not only the sovereigns, but the banks as well, which are in far worse shape. These bankers sidestepped participation in the bailout, because they own all of the European politicians. That does not make the problem go away. It could be 50 years before debt is written off or offset, so it is not surprising that the media will be forced at least in part to focus on Europe. As this transpires America’s problems will slowly become front-page concerns, especially when America and Wall Street finds out that the US government had to loot federal pensions of $275 billion to keep the government afloat until August 2nd with no ability to repay those funds. Then what happens if congress does not approve the short-term debt extension? Will government keep looting the pensions plans or get legislation passed to commandeer private pensions, 401Ks and IRA’s? $6 trillion is a tasty morsel for a bankrupt country. Passage will be simple if a bill goes forward, because our masters on Wall Street and in banking own 95% of our Congressmen. The average American has no say in government any more.

There you have it. A long hot summer. Nothing has changed except the deck chairs have been temporarily rearranged. The ship is still sinking. 

In the first ruling by a federal appeals court on President Obama’s health care overhaul, a panel in Cincinnati handed the administration a victory yesterday by agreeing that the government can require a minimum amount of insurance for Americans.

A Republican-appointed judge joined with a Democratic appointee for the 2-1 majority in another milestone for Obama’s hotly debated signature domestic initiative — the first time a Republican federal court appointee has affirmed the merits of the law.

The White House and Justice Department hailed the panel’s affirmation of an earlier ruling by a federal court in Michigan; opponents of the law said challenges will continue to the US Supreme Court.

At issue is a conservative law center’s lawsuit arguing on behalf of plaintiffs that potentially requiring them to buy insurance or face penalties could subject them to financial hardship. The suit warns that the law is too broad and could lead to more federal mandates.

The Thomas More Law Center, in Ann Arbor, Mich., argued before the panel that the law was unconstitutional and that Congress overstepped its powers.

The government countered the measure was needed for the overall goal of reducing health care costs and reforms such as protecting people with preexisting conditions. It said the coverage mandate will help keep the costs of changes from being shifted to households and providers.

White House adviser Stephanie Cutter called the ruling another victory for millions of Americans and small businesses benefiting from the overhaul.

“At the end of the day, we are confident the constitutionality of these landmark reforms will be upheld,’’ she said in a statement.

The law center predicted its case would have a good shot on appeal.

“Clearly, our case won’t resolve all the issues, because we don’t raise the state rights issue, but we are the only one that is currently ripe for Supreme Court review that raises the challenge on behalf of an individual,’’ said David Yerushalmi, an attorney for the law center.

The three-judge panel of the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit delivered a lengthy opinion with disagreement on some issues, moving unusually quickly in delivering its decision, less than a month after hearing oral arguments.

“Congress had a rational basis for concluding that the minimum coverage provision is essential to the Affordable Care Act’s larger reforms to the national markets in health care delivery and health insurance,’’ Judge Boyce F. Martin, appointed by President Carter, wrote for the majority.

A President George W. Bush appointee concurred; a President Reagan appointee who is a US district judge in Columbus, Ohio, sitting on the panel disagreed. Judges are selected for panels through random draw.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

At this point, I have noticed a few of my recipients are asking more intelligent questions, and showing considerable fear for their future. But only a few! That the majority of America is still ignorant of the coming disaster is undeniable. They still are convinced there is nothing they can do. So why get upset? There is also the stupid conviction that our federal government can set everything right if we can get the right people elected.Such stupidity is mind boggling.

THE SCUMBAG BANKERS OWN THE GOVERNMENT!

I make no pretence at being a wiz bang economic guru, but at least I finally woke up when I read Mayer Amshel Rothschild’s comment, “Let me issue and control a nation’s currency, and I care not who makes its laws.”The first time I read that I had an epiphany such as a white man would have coming home early and finding his wife of many years on the kitchen table with a black preacher. Suddenly a blinding light of knowledge connected the dots I had ignored all my adult life. Excessive compulsive research since then has legitimized my epiphany.

Let me convince you that the BANKERS strangle hold on world commerce, obtained by their strangle hold on world currency’s will not be reversed until they can find no safe place on earth to hide. Get educated, and educate your neighbor, or by God you will live a miserable balance of your life.At this point it will take a hundred million educated and infuriated American’s to regain control of our future, and there will still be many years of agony before freedom is restored. For the average American, financial security is not obtainable, and personal security is soon to be lost as well. Such is the price of ignorance and false confidence in governments!!!!!!!!!

 

Why is Gold Important to the World’s Economy?

Just like the Internet outed the global warmers who were set to run a global CO2 tax scam to siphon wealth for The Chosen again.  The crooks in Washington, unable to get congress to pass such a scheme, are currently trying to force it upon the American public with unconstitutional EPA “regulations” and “laws.”

 

Hugo Salinas Price’s article<span style="font-size:14.0pt;font-family:Arial;<br /><br /><br />

<span style="font-size:14.0pt;font-family:<br /><br /><br />
Arial;color:#333333″>that compares the gold standard and the creation and preservation of jobs and local production versus a fiat world reserve currency system dominated by one country that uprooted jobs, destroyed local production, and caused devastating trade imbalances is a must read for anyone who wants to understand how the world got to where it is economically.

His article is an accurate picture of how a small group of international bankers control the majority of the world’s wealth from The City —a square mile financial center in the middle of London where money and global economies are manipulated for profit and control—and the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) in Basil, Switzerland, which funds The City’s central banks that print and control national currencies in strategic countries throughout the world, including the U.S..

color:#333333″>Both are controlled and owned by the same bankers.

The City’s bankers have the knowledge, financial expertise, experience, and trillions to orchestrate—as they have been doing for decades—the big monetary picture that unfolds in Price’s article.

<p style="margin-top:8.4pt;margin-right:0in;margin-bottom:8.4pt;margin-left:<br /><br /><br />

color:#333333″>A couple of minor things that Price doesn’t expand on. One is that Nixon decoupled the dollar from gold and took the U.S. (and by extension, the world) off the gold standard in 1971.  He did that, but in reality was just the person who happened to be President at the time to sign the papers.  Nixon, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), was instructed to do this by the CFR—a U.S. based confederate, like Goldman Sachs, for the Rothschild global financial cabal that’s headquartered in The City.

Price also mentions the “. . . international corporations were forced to find cheap labor in order to compete.”  That was what they told the public, but in reality they coordinated the off-shoring of America’s industry because if you could make a $20 shirt that cost $10 to produce in the U.S. for 50 cents in China, and sell it back to the U.S. for the same $20, your profit handsomely; the millions of American jobs associated with the manufacture of that shirt and similar goods such as television sets and computers be damned. America’s unemployment—somewhere north of 15 million with no hope of getting better—is <span style="font-family:<br /><br /><br />
Arial”>in reality beyond 22 %<span style="color:#265E15;text-decoration:none;<br /><br /><br />
text-underline:none”> 
. The 9% number bantered about by government shills is a lie.

No, the multi-national corporations had their sights first on Mexico, then on Chinaand Bangladeshand other slave labor “resources” way back. That’s why they set about writing laws for their paid congress to pass, such as the removal of U.S. tariffs (which previously protected them from the 50 cent foreign shirt makers) before they began shipping their key manufacturing operations to overseas sweat shops “. . .in order to compete.”

color:#333333″>The bankers approached corrupt politicians in these nations to put up their country’s resources as collateral to bail themselves out of their own spending orgies, and from which there is no financial escape once the financial trap is sprung.  Upon default of their IMF/World bank loans, the bankers simply take control the country’s resources (collateral)—toll roads, food, fiber, water, minerals, mines, manufacturing facilities, banks. In this manner, The City has, over the last century, gained financial control of nations.

These banksters also attempted to bankrupt and “claim” Iceland, but the Icelandic people bowed their necks, threw the bankers out, and started sending local bankers responsible for the country’s deliberate bankruptcy to prison.

The gold standard: generator and protector of jobs

By Hugo Salinas Price

 

The abandonment of the gold standard in 1971 is closely tied to the massive unemployment the industrialized world has suffered in recent years; Mexico, even with a lower level of industrialization than the developed countries, has also lost jobs due to the closing of industries; in recent years, the creation of new jobs in productive activities has been anemic at best.

The world’s financial press, in which leading economists and analysts publish their work, never examines the relationship between the abandonment of the gold standard and unemployment, de-industrialization, and the huge chronic export deficits of the Western world powers. Might it be due to ignorance? We are reluctant to think so, given that the articles appearing in the world’s leading financial publications are written by quite intelligent analysts. Rather, in our opinion, it is an act of self-censorship to avoid incurring the displeasure of the important financial and geopolitical interests that are behind the financial press.

In this article we discuss the relationship between loss of the gold standard and the present financial chaos, which is accompanied by severe “structural imbalances” between the historically dominant industrial powers and their new rivals in Asia.

World trade before 1971

From the end of World War II through the 1960s, all well-governed nations in the world sought to maintain a constant balance between their exports and imports. They all wanted to maintain a situation where they exported more than they imported, so that they could accumulate growing Treasury reserves of gold, or in its defect dollars, which, under the terms of the United States (US) promise in the Bretton Woods Agreements of 1944, could be redeemed by any Central Bank that requested gold in exchange for its dollars.

To be precise, we cannot fail to mention one exception. The exception to the rule was none other than the US. All well-governed countries sought to export more than they imported, except the US.

The US was not overly concerned with maintaining a balance between exports and imports, because – according to Bretton Woods – the US could pay its export deficits by the simple expedient of sending more dollars to pay its creditors. As the sole source of dollars, the US had a clear advantage over the rest of the world; they could pay their debts in (redeemable) dollars that they themselves printed.

Economists of the day warned of the danger of this practice, which resulted in a constant loss of American gold. From over 20,000 tons at the end of World War II, US gold reserves dropped year by year as certain countries, notably France, insisted on redeeming their dollars for gold at a rate of 35 dollars per ounce of gold. France incurred intense displeasure in Washington and New York due to its demands for gold in exchange for dollars; some analysts attribute the unrest in France in the spring of 1968 to covert operations by the US intelligence services, in a show of America’s disapproval of the behavior of France, led at the time by General Charles de Gaulle.

The US did nothing to slow the loss of gold. In the early months of 1971, Henry Hazlitt, a solid classical economist, predicted that the dollar would have to be devalued; he said it would be necessary to increase the number of dollars that would be needed to obtain an ounce of gold from the United States Treasury. Only months after his warning, the dam burst, and in August 1971 the US was forced to devalue its currency, because the amount of gold in its reserves had fallen to a dangerous level. (Today, many doubt that the US has the 8,000 tons of gold it claims to have in its vaults at Fort Knox and the US Military Academy at West Point, N.Y.)

What Henry Hazlitt never imagined was that instead of devaluing the currency – the recommendation of Paul Samuelson, Nobel Prize Winner in Economics, published the week before August 15, 1971 – President Nixon took the advice of Milton Friedman and declared that from that time forward the US would no longer redeem dollars held by the world’s central banks at any price. The US unilaterally violated the terms of Bretton Woods. In effect, it was actually financial bankruptcy.

Since then, all world trade – or most of it, as the euro, the pound sterling, and to a lesser extent the yen all compete with the dollar – is conducted using dollars that are nothing more than fiat money, fake money. Because all the world’s other currencies were bound to gold through the dollar, the immediate consequence was that simultaneously they also became fiat money, fake money with no backing.

Consequences of abandoning the gold standard

The consequences of that fateful day have overthrown all order and harmony in economic relations among the nations of the world, while facilitating and expediting the global expansion of credit because part of the dollars exported by the US ended up in the reserves of Central Banks around the world.

Countries began to accumulate dollars as the expansion of credit in the US advanced inexorably, now free of the restraint formerly imposed by Bretton Woods. The rest of the world was forced to accumulate dollars in reserves, because having insufficient dollar reserves, or having reserves that did not grow, or worse, having falling reserves, was a clear sign for monetary speculators to attack a country’s currency and destroy it with devaluation.

As the loss of gold ceased to be a limiting factor, the last restrictions on the expansion of credit were stripped away. A heavy flow of dollars to all parts of the world spurred the expansion of global credit, which did not stop until 2007. The international banking elite always strive to obtain greater profits and to that end always seek to expand credit. Starting in 1971, freed of the restraint of being required to pay international accounts in gold, or with dollars redeemable for gold, the constant unfettered creation of credit and still more credit ensued. It was boom time in the US.

The US, which paid the rest of the world with its own irredeemable dollars of no intrinsic value, lauded the adoption of “free trade” and “globalization”. The US could buy whatever it wanted, anywhere in the world, in any quantity, and at any price. Starting in the 1990s, its export deficits became alarming, but nothing was done to reduce them; on the contrary, they grew year by year.

Mexico, following the US example, joined NAFTA – the North American Free Trade Association. Down with import tariffs! Free trade with the world! The new vision offered the enthralling, seductive picture of a globalized world without borders, where everyone could buy and sell where they liked, with no limits. The 90’s were years of unbridled optimism for globalization!

Free Trade is unquestionably beneficial for humanity at large. It is good to be able to buy goods where they are cheapest; some countries enjoy conditions that favor them in production of certain things; each country should produce those things in which it has an advantage over other countries. Thus, the whole world can benefit from the good things each country has to offer. It is an appealing and sound doctrine, but… there is a crucial catch: the doctrine of Free Trade was conceived for a world where the sole means of payment was gold. When the doctrines of “Free Trade” and the “Comparative Advantages of Nations” were developed, the economists of the day could not imagine a world that did not use gold, but instead relied on a fiat money that could be created at will by a single country.

The “globalization” of the 1980s and 1990s and to date is based on the ideas of “Free Trade”. However, in the absence of the gold standard that existed when the doctrine was conceived, “globalization” had completely destructive results, which have caused the de-industrialization of the West and the rise to power of Asia.

In the decades prior to 2007 a massive fleet of cargo ships was created, which sailed for the US and Europe – the West in general, Mexico included – bearing all kinds of inexpensive, quality products made  in Asia. The flood was so great that local factories in the Western World were forced to move to Asia, to employ cheaper labor and continue to sell their products in the West.

My readers will know how many industries, large and small, have ceased to exist in the US and the West in general, because Chinese competition killed them. They will know as well how hard it is to find a product that can be produced at a profit in the developed countries. It is very difficult to find a niche for any product to be manufactured locally. The flight of factories to Asia to take advantage of lower wages caused unemployment where local factories were closed. For the same reason job creation is slow or non-existent.

A taxi driver in Barcelona told us: “Spain is a service economy. Industry is no longer our foundation. If tourists stop coming, we’ll die.” By the same token, it has been said of Greece: “It produces olive oil and tourism, and nothing more.” The US, industrial colossus of the post-war world, has been de-industrialized. Now, what are developed countries to do to create jobs?

Diagnosis of the evils of de-industrialization and unemployment

These evils appeared because gold was eliminated as a) a constraint on the expansion of credit and the creation of money, and b) the only form of payment of international debt.

Under the gold standard all players in international trade knew that it was only possible to sell to a country that sold something else in turn. It was not possible to buy from a country that did not buy in turn. Trade was naturally balanced by this restriction. The “structural imbalances” so commonplace today were unheard of.

For example, in 1900, Mexico could export coffee to Germany because Germany, in turn, exported machinery to Mexico. Germany could buy coffee from Mexico because Mexico, in turn, bought machinery from Germany. Each transaction was denominated in gold, and as a result there was a balance based on an economic reality. Because there was balance in world commercial relationships, a relatively small amount of gold sufficed to adjust the international balance. The world financial center which acted as a “Global Clearing House” was London. A few hundred tons of gold were sufficient to meet the needs of that Clearing House. For further reading on the function of London as a clearing centre for world commerce, see “Real Bills” and associated articles by Antal E. Fekete at www.professorfekete.com

Another example: In 1930, the US could sell very little to China, because the Chinese were poor and lacked purchasing power. Because the US sold very little to China, at the same time it could buy very little from China. Although prices of Chinese products were very low, the US could not buy much from China, because China did not buy from the US – China was poor and could not afford American products. Thus, trade between China and the US was balanced by the need to pay the balance of their transactions in gold. Balance was imperative. There was no chance of “structural imbalance”.

Under Free Trade with the gold standard, the great majority of transactions did not require movement of gold to complete the exchange. The goods exchanged paid for each other. Only small remainders had to be paid in gold. Consequently, international trade was limited by the volume of mutual purchases between parties; for example, Chinese silk paid for imports of American machinery, and vice-versa.

The gold standard imposed order and harmony. If President Nixon had not “closed the gold window” in 1971, the world would be radically different today. China would have taken a century or more to reach its present level. China could not buy much from the US, because it was poor; therefore, China could not sell much to the US.

All this changed radically with the abolition of the gold standard.

Everything changed because the United States, having removed gold from the world monetary system, could “pay” everything in dollars, and without the gold standard as a limiting institution, it could print dollars ad libitum – without limit. Thus, in the 1970s the United States started to buy huge amounts of high quality products from Japan, while the Japanese boasted: “Japan sells; Japan does not buy.” A situation that was impossible under the gold standard became perfectly possible under the fiat dollar standard. The Japanese became gigantic producers, their country an island transformed into a factory. Japan accumulated vast reserves of dollars sent from the US in exchange for Japanese products. This in turn triggered the de-industrialization of the US.

Take for example the US manufacturers of T.V. Some of the famous US factories that built TV receivers by the millions were “Philco”, “Admiral”, “Zenith”, and “Motorola”. The Japanese had better and cheaper products, and since the abandonment of the gold standard allowed Japan to sell without buying in turn, and allowed the US to buy without selling in turn, the result was that all the huge factories producing these TV’s in the US were closed down. That’s how “going off gold” closed down US industry.

 Unlimited purchases from Japan flowed to the US and the world, because they were paid in dollars, which could be created in unlimited quantities. The balance the gold standard had imposed disappeared and imbalance took its place.

After 1971, the US embarked on a protracted, large-scale expansion of credit. As the nation was de-industrialized and high-paying jobs in industry disappeared, a lack of disposable income for the population was replaced with easy and cheap credit, to conceal the stagnation in per capita income. Consumer credit drove imports from Asia and furthered de-industrialization even more. The great expansion of American credit was made possible because the gold standard, which restrained the expansion of credit by the banking system, had been abandoned. It is no coincidence that some analysts have observed that in real terms, American workers have had no real increase in their income since 1970.

All mainstream economists consider the elimination of the gold standard perfectly acceptable. They still do not see, or do not want to see, that the “Law of Unforeseen Consequences” is at work: the enormous advantage the US gained by being able to pay unlimited amounts in irredeemable dollars has become the fatal cause of the industrial destruction of the US – and of the West in general. A Mexican saying applies: en el pecado llevas la penitencia – “sin brings with it its own punishment”.

The current malaise: financial crisis, industrial crisis, crisis of unemployment

Today the situation is far worse. China, with a population of 1.3 billion, has become a formidable power. No one can compete with China in price. China sells vast quantities of goods to the rest of the world, without the rest of the world having any chance of selling similar quantities to China, and China can do so, because today trade deficits are “paid” not in gold, but in dollars or euros or pounds sterling or yen, which will never be scarce: they are created at will by the USA, the European Central Bank, the Bank of England, or the Bank of Japan.

A fearful monster has been created as a consequence of the elimination of the gold standard, which imposed a limit: “You can only sell to those who sell to you; you can only buy from those who buy from you.” This limit no longer applies; everything is disarray, inequality, imbalance; “structural imbalance” prevails because we no longer have the gold standard.

The credit expansion boom has ended, and in its place we have a global financial crisis.  Today the problem of “structural imbalance” and the de-industrialization and unemployment it has produced in formerly industrialized countries acquires greater relevance with every passing day. What is to be done with the masses of jobless men and women? No one knows the answer, because the answer is not acceptable to the thinkers of today: the correction of “structural imbalances” and re-industrialization, in other words the creation of new jobs, lies in restoring the gold standard worldwide.

The “globalization” so highly praised by the financial press in recent years, has become the worst imaginable nightmare. It is no longer possible to support the unemployed with government handouts. The Sovereign State is close to bankruptcy. Thus, nature takes its revenge on those who dared violate its laws by seeking to impose false money on the world.

Richard Nixon’s elimination of the gold standard has proven to be the US’s best possible strategic gift to China and the rest of Asia. Today, China has a colossal industrial base that might have taken centuries to build, while the US is to a great extent devoid of factories and incapable of reclaiming its former glory. How tragic a fate for the US!

International and National Commerce

The word “commerce” is defined in the Concise Oxford English Dictionary as “Exchange of merchandise or services, esp. on a large scale [ French or from Latin COM(mercium frommerx mercis merchandise)]

Note that the “exchange of merchandise or services” cannot include as a complement to that exchange a fictitious payment with fiat money, which is neither merchandise nor a service, but rather a paper note or digital entry denoting a debt payable in nothing. In the case of the dollar, the debt is a debt of the Federal Reserve and registered accordingly on its balance sheet. A debt cannot be settled by tendering a debt instrument (which is payable in nothing in any case) and in effect, Balance of Payments debts have not, by any means, been settled in international commerce since 1971.

The non-settlement of international balance of payments debts has produced the accumulation of huge fictitious dollar reserves on the part of exporting countries, since 1971. The same holds for fictitious payments of export deficit debts with euros, pounds, yen or any other present-day currency. See the following graph:

 Gold, up until the Bretton Woods Agreements of 1944, figured as the complement to the international exchange of merchandise or services and did settle outstanding balance of payments deficits, because it was a merchandise or commodity used as money.

According to the Bretton Woods Agreements, the fiduciary dollar was accepted as being as good as gold, with trust on the part of Central Banks upon the ability to redeem the dollar into gold. From 1944 up until 1971 then, these fiduciary dollars were held in Central Bank reserves as a credit call upon US gold; the final payment had not been effected and was delayed as a credit granted to the US until the dollars held in reserves were to be cashed in for gold at some future date.

As it turned out, the “fiducia” or “trust” was misplaced, for in 1971 the US reneged on the Bretton Woods Agreements of 1944, “closed the gold window” and stiffed the creditor countries. No final settlement of international commerce debts took place in 1971, nor has any taken place since thenthe truth of this statement is obscured by the mistaken idea that tendering a fiat currency in payment of an international debt constitutes settlement of that debt.

Once that false idea – that fiat money can settle a debt – is accepted as valid, then the problem of the enormous “imbalances” in world trade becomes an insoluble enigma. The best and brightest of today’s accredited economists attempt in vain to find a solution to a problem that cannot be solved except by the renewed use of gold as the international medium of commerce.

Regarding national commerce, the same reasoning applies. In reality, no one engaging in commerce in any country in the world today is actually paying for purchases, that is to say, there is no actual settlement of any debt. All individuals, corporations and government entities are merely shuffling debts (payable in nothing) between themselves, in the form of either paper bills or digital banking money, whether in dollars or any other currency in the world.

For internal national commerce the smaller value of the silver coin was convenient for day-to-day transactions at the popular level and did constitute settlement of debt when tendered in payment, for silver is a merchandise or commodity which, like gold, can participate in commercial exchange.

Today, China and the other great Asian exporters have belatedly realized that the dollars they received as “payment” for their mass exports are nothing more than digits in American computers. If the Chinese do not cooperate, the bankers in New York can erase those digits in half an hour, and leave China with no reserves. For this reason, the Chinese and Asians in general are buying gold, and will continue to buy it indefinitely: computers cannot erase gold reserves.

The awful truth about China is that the Chinese acquired their formidable industrial power in the short span of thirty years at a tremendous cost: for thirty years they worked for nothing. China has $2.5 Trillion of reserves; China does not have any use for these reserves, they have no intrinsic value and China does not know how to get rid of them in exchange for something tangible of value; these reserves are nothing more than digits in computers in the Western world. Net, net, net: China worked for thirty years to provide the world with a vast quantity of merchandise, in return for: nothing! Thirty years of slavery, to build an industrial empire!

Mexico: forced to use the protectionist “Band-Aid”

Mexico has its oil, perhaps more than we are told. Let’s hope so! Our economy is less complex, less sophisticated, than the US’s. According to a Mexican Treasury study carried out in 2007, 85% of Mexicans have no bank accounts – a good sign that they can get by on paper money and are not getting into trouble with credit card debt. The Mexican economy, as we see it, is like a broad, low pyramid. It is more stable than the American “skyscraper” economy, a highly complex economy. Mexico is better equipped to survive the present crisis than the USA.

In today’s great world financial crisis of false money, we are likely to see countries around the world resort to protectionism: the leaders will be the same countries that so recently sang the praises of “globalization”. In this probable case, Mexico will have to do the same. It is a far from ideal scenario, but it is imperative for lack of the gold standard. Protectionism limits productive efficiency in any country because it limits the market for its protected products to its own national market. A limited market hampers efficiency. The supply of goods available to the population will be more limited and probably of lower quality at higher prices. (Protectionism will have similar effects in the US.)

Mexico will have to restrict imports in the near future. Otherwise, we will suffer serial currency devaluations. Protectionism is not the best policy, but Mexico will probably be forced to resort to it, for lack of the gold standard, which would be the best means of creating jobs in the US, in the rest of the “developed” world and here.

The effective cure

If Mexico aspires to anything more, we shall have to wait for the restoration of the gold standard worldwide. In the meantime, neither demagogy nor Socialism will solve our problems. Only the gold standard can do that.

For our industrial capacity to gain access to international markets – and for Mexicans to gain access to products from international markets – it will be necessary to restore the gold standard. Bilateral trade agreements are not optimum. The optimum is to have the world as a market, where payment for exports is balanced by imports and residual balances are paid in gold. Payment in gold of export deficits and collection in gold of export surpluses is sine qua non. Under the gold standard, Mexico would achieve sustainable prosperity and full employment for our admirable workforce.

Products from China and Asia in general, which today undermine our industrial capacity and create unemployment because we cannot compete with the extremely low wages of the Asian countries, would cease to be a problem under the gold standard; if the Asian countries, which today invade our markets, do not buy similar quantities of Mexican products – which today they do not – they would not be able to export their products to Mexico. The gold standard would fairly balance exports with imports; it would prevent the strategic destruction of our industry and protect us naturally, without the need for protectionist barriers.

The same therapy Mexico needs – the restoration of the gold standard – is what the world requires to regain economic health and sustainable prosperity.

Under a restored gold standard, Americans will not be able to purchase goods from China, unless China purchases American goods with a similar value. If the Chinese find nothing of value to purchase in the US, then Americans will be unable to purchase Chinese goods. It’s as simple as that! To continue selling to the West, China will have to open wide its doors to imports!

If Americans find they simply cannot purchase Chinese goods, Americans will manufacture those goods themselves. Industries and new jobs will spring up like mushrooms immediately, to satisfy American demand. International balance will be restored, unemployment will disappear.

Protectionism is not a cure, it is a Band-Aid. Mexico will not achieve the prosperity of which it is capable through protectionism nor by resorting to Socialist measures that crush the creative spirit of the individual. Nor can we succumb to renouncing our nationality and accepting absorption by the US, imitating all the (very costly) measures the current US administration imposes on its citizens. The ideal combination for Mexico includes a moderate dose of nationalism, a government that does not incur deficits, the institution of a monetized one-ounce silver coin, the “Libertad”, to stimulate and protect savings, and eventual participation in a new global gold standard, in which our nation can find the opportunity to fulfill its destiny.

“The gold standard is the generator and protector of jobs.”

POWER GRID TAMPERING WILL END AN ERA

See the update, which answers a question about DC connected main lines below this report. The entire premise of my report is based on the fact that you cannot run multiple frequencies simultaneously on the grid without separating it into sections and running them separately. That is what the AP report clearly implies when it says that clocks will run faster and slower in various regions. ____________________________________________________________________________

 A recent AP report states that there is a proposal in place to change the frequency various parts of the national electrical grid run at. The frequency differences will be minor, but will force an end to the national grid as we know it. The only way frequencies can be different at all in separate locations around the nation is to not have a grid at all.
They are attempting to childishly play this down as something that will mess up clocks. But what it really means is that they are going to dismantle the national power grid entirely.
And now I will dissect and shred this article

First of all, they are saying that this is going to be a "year long experiment". It won't be. Since dismantling the grid amounts to an act of war, once it is dismantled we will not get it back. This "experiment" is exactly what you would want to do to a nation as a pre-emptive measure before attacking it. When destroying a nation, the basics have to go. You need to destroy the water, electrical, and food supplies to force people to surrender. By running different frequencies in different parts of the grid,the laws of physics clearly dictate that it has to be run in sections, all isolated from each other.

Many readers know that one of the strengths of the internet is it's distributed data paths, which make it very difficult to take down. If a line gets cut, you can just re-route through a different line, and all is well. Our interconnected power grid, which has been in place and running synchronously with perfect phase and frequency matching across it's entireity since 1930, is an electrical equivalent of the internet, and is a marvel of the world.

Our intact electrical grid will feed power to areas that have lost it, and keep their lights on. So let's say a hurricane takes out Louisiana and all their generating facilities are damaged – the grid will provide power from Texas to help them get back on their feet. If you want to knock out power in a war, you would need to isolate Louisiana FIRST so that Texas could not feed them after you destroyed their infrastructure. This is the only truthful reason why anyone would suggest dismantling one of our greatest national treasures.

We have in America a system which would allow Hoover dam to provide power to Boston. But those days have to end before an experiment like the one this article discusses can even happen. Here is why:
The article states: "The group that oversees the U.S. power grid is proposing an experiment would allow more frequency variation than it does now without corrections, according to a company presentation obtained by The Associated Press".

Here they say they will allow "more frequency variation". Well, that means that after most of a century of having zero frequency variation, that there will now be frequency variation. America's power grid has been perfectly synchronized since 1930 and has never varied by more than 1/10th of a cycle (1/600th of a second) from coast to coast in over 80 years. This is due largely to the fact that the grid causes generating facilities to lock into each other, and mimic each other's phasing exactly. Any deviation in any one facility against the predominant phasing of the grid will cause it to lose efficiency and in extreme cases be destroyed.

To say they will allow "MORE frequency variation" is a lie, because it implies there WAS frequency variation. THERE NEVER WAS, EVER. That is why clocks have used the grid frequency as a reference for 4 generations.

Folks, you cannot have any frequency variation on an interconnected electrical grid. This is because our 60 hz AC is a rising and falling wave form which goes from negative to positive 60 times a second. Negative and positive ALWAYS have to line up. If you deviate from a 60 hz frequency by even 0.001 hz on only one part of the grid, all it will take is ten seconds for that variation in frequency to cause it to begin rising and falling opposite to the rest of the grid. That would represent a positive to negative electrical short right from within the fabric of the grid itself. So there is no such thing as a "slightly faster running grid" out east, it's a bold faced lie completely counter to the laws of physics.

HERE IS ANOTHER LIE TO SHRED:
"The North American Electric Reliability Corp. runs the nation's interlocking web of transmission lines and power plants."
No they don't. No one company manages the grid. It is managed via cooperation and understanding of the laws of physics. This company is merely now the face of the lie. The fact that they have a long history has been SHREDDED by this proposal of theirs, buisnesses come and go, and these people need to head on out the door.

I myself have had to make calls for power allocations to avoid regional black-outs when demand was predicted to be high, and I certainly never called these folks! I just called the facility feeding us and THEY handled it. If they could not handle it, they had the power routed from another area. So for the North American Electric Reliability Corp. to say they manage it all is quite a statement! How do we know they are not a front company, set up as a bogus pre-paid corporation with a purchased "history"? I have a LOT of experience, and NEVER HEARD OF THEM.

 

And now the math, which proves them liars.

Here is how you prove that the real goal is to dismantle the grid. Their claim was that they wanted an allowed deviation of 20 minutes per year on one coast in comparison with the opposite coast. So let's take 20 minutes and multiply it by 60 seconds. That's 1200 seconds. Then divide that by days in a year (365) which will give you 3.287 seconds of deviation PER DAY. Take that number and divide it by hours (24) and that gives you a deviation of 0.136 seconds per hour. Divide that by 60 minutes and the deviation is 0.0022826 seconds per minute. Divide that by 60 again. That gives you a deviation of 0.000038 seconds per second. Now MULTIPLY that by your cycles PER SECOND, which is 60. Right back to 0.0022826 phase difference per second.

Now here is where it gets interesting. Let's say I am running a 600,000 volt line. Since the frequency we are dealing with is 60 Hz, it fits perfectly into the equation. Multiply 0.0022826 as a representation of percentage by 600,000 volts. AC has a positive and negative cycle which effectively doubles that rate, for a total of 0.0045652% per second. Multiply that by 600,000 volts, and the voltage creep equals 2739 volts per SECOND. The math is pretty simple from there. One minute (60 seconds) x 2,739 volts will equal a 164,347 volt difference in phasing between interconnected coasts per minute. Major problems will happen within 15 seconds. Total phase desynchronization will occur in a little under three minutes.

This serves to prove that no frequency deviation at all can be tolerated in an interconnected grid and that this agency – the so called "North American Electrical Reliability Corp" is lying out their butt in this news release and therefore can only have been usurped by either paper trained idiots or an enemy that wants an end to the American power grid, because allowing "frequency variation" can mean only that. The AP article should finish them, OUT OF BUSINESS.

The bottom line? The American power grid, at no time ever in the last 80 years has ever been out of synchronization, by more than 0.001 second total per year coast to coast. The laws of physics will not allow it. We cannot allow ANYONE to disconnect our grid. 20 minutes a year would not cut it in tuvalu! Not even 1/60th of 1 second would. It is a mathematical impossibility to have ANY deviation on an interconnected grid.

And it gets worse . . . . .
When it comes to phase correlation, momentum can be the enemy.
The generators at electrical facilities are ENORMOUS. People may not realize how big they really are. Large electrical facilities need to be spun up before going online, it takes a long time to get the enormous mass of the generator moving and stabilized, sometimes even hours. Even modest generators are so big that the spinning mass can weigh hundreds of tons, and surface speeds of the armatures can be over 100 MPH. That's a LOT of speed on a LOT of mass. The massive size of these generators helps them be perfectly stable when running. There is so much momentum built up in a large industrial generator that even enormous peak draws from it can be soaked up without it being perceptibly slowed by the peaks at all.

If an enemy was running the government then, and people were happy to have frequencies changed for no good reason at all, electrical "tug of wars" between generators could be set up under the premise of "oops" to destroy them. Breaker disconnects under such situations are often unsuccessful due to contacts getting welded. I have seen problems happen in even tiny one megawatt units, where a controller malfunctioned and dropped them onto the same line when their phasing was only off by a fraction of a percent. One was going very slightly ahead the other, so it drove the other to go faster while the other slowed it down. The over-reactions were extreme; they ponged each other's speed up and down and the accelerations/decelerations were enormous, taking place within fractions of a second. I fully expected the windings to explode. I was blown away by how extreme their behavior was.

Even a pair of small generators can be caused to totally freak out from an initial phasing difference that is very minor. This problem would be greatly exacerbated in a power play between multiple enormous generators. Electrical explosions would no doubt result, in the case I witnessed, they both got the right bounce within a couple seconds and stabilized. It was a brief and exciting event. Things are normally not so lucky and the answer is obvious – If you want no problems in the electrical grid, a perfect standard frequency should be the norm, as it always has been for over 80 years.

However, if you were an enemy in posession of a virus like Stuxnet, a non-interconnected grid with all the switch gear from when it was previously connected still in place to play with could be lots of FUN!. To blow out two regions at the same time, all you would have to do is activate switch gear that is already in place from the old grid when both regions are out of phase with each other. Doing so would cause serious damage to equipment in both regions.

Want to blow a nuclear reactor? Here's a good way to try! SUDDENLY and without announcement, introduce a frequency difference on the grid. Suddenly that nuke plant would be forced to deal with a rapid phase inversion on the grid. With all the stored momentum in the generators available for a nice peak surge output, thousands and thousands of times higher than anything they could ever handle if suddenly the coupled phases were inverted, there would be at a minimum enormous explosions in the circuit breakers and switch gear, and most likely enormous explosions from within the generator windings themselves.

Suddenly, with the windings and switch gear blown in an instant, there would be nothing left to load the generator, which needs to be held back from accelerating by the electrical system it is feeding power into. You would get a brief period of rapid acceleration before safety shutoffs re-routed steam from the generator's turbines to an emergency bypass. Things would get sketchy after this. YOU NEED TO GET RID OF THAT STEAM.
At a minimum, safety valves should open on the reactor or whatever else (coal fired boiler) to release the sudden steam pressure buildup resulting from the turbine steam not being needed anymore. If the system was infected with Stuxnet, (85 percent of our power generating facilities can be) and Stuxnet was programmed to over ride the emergency steam release valves as was the case at Fukushima, things WILL explode. Said explosions would not be minor. The worst possible case scenario would be a nuclear reactor which was running at full output suddenly not having it's steam be needed anymore, be kept at full thermal output by a virus that also forces all the safety related equipment to not activate.

Clandestine military action is the only reason any thinking engineer would want to suggest acceptance of variances in the grid frequency. There is no possible way to derive any sort of benefit from not keeping the frequency dead on, as it has always been.

But it gets worse, even
Every motor powered device depends upon the grid frequency to regulate how hard it runs itself. All of the design characteristics involving material stress and current draw are centered around an always reliable 60 hz frequency. If the frequency was increased to 70 hz, swamp coolers would burn up from trying to run too fast, as would air conditioners, washing machines, ect. The amount they are talking about in the article would not be that high, but I believe it is the end goal and introducing the concept of tampering with the frequency is like a toe dip to see if there are any pihranas out in the public sphere to look out for while they slowly weaponize the power grid. I will happily provide the first bite. What if they choose 90 hz? 100hz? Not much would survive that, and whatever did would not be the same anymore. Welcome to the third world.

Here is a great quote to rip, this is an outright lie
Some parts of the grid, like in the East, tend to run faster than others. Errors add up. If the grid averages just over 60 cycles a second, clocks that rely on the grid will gain 14 seconds per day, according to the company's presentation."

There is zero frequency variation on the grid between east and west coasts. It is physically impossible for them to vary by even 1/10th of a cycle (1/600th of a second) per year. ANY drift will cause immediate phase cancellation with other parts of the grid resulting in immediate grid failure. The entire grid HAS TO go up or down SIMULTANEOUSLY. There is NO SUCH THING as a frequency variation in relation to another connected area.

This entire report is such a bold faced stream of BS and lies, I am blown away to think they would ever consider trying. This is downright brazen
I know many readers believe the end is near for this nation. Proposals like this prove it. Even worse is the attitude of AP. Did they not consult anyone who actually knew what this would do, other than the enemy? Are THEY the enemy?
They will do this if we do not speak up. If you want this nation to have a future, I strongly suggest you make it perfectly clear that the GRID IS NOT TO BE TAMPERED WITH.
UPDATE:
These comments are in response to people who e-mailed me telling me the grid was now running DC, which would, if true, make my main premise irrelevant.
My response follows
I know that on many of the big transmission lines they are indeed using DC on VERY LONG RUNS of 400 miles or more because it allows higher RMS throughput and minimizes inductive losses, but it is not always the case. None of the big lines in my area are that way, and AC distribution is still so predominant that playing with frequencies on a grid as great as ours is the equivalent of handing a ferarri over to a tinkering teenager. I will not budge on my major premise, that phase conflict issues will indeed force the grid to operate in isolated pockets if an experiment with different AC frequencies is allowed, and that anyone who is suggesting it should be allowed to run with frequency variations should be the subject of GREAT scrutiny and suspicion.
How much of the grid, exactly, uses DC/inverter arrangements? VERY LITTLE. And it is ALL on remotely situated lines of enormous length. You will find few of these types of lines if ANY east of the Rockies. These are mostly in the desert southwest. East of the rockies, where long runs are not needed, whether or not DC will save you money has to be calculated against cost of equipment and losses of power in that equipment. Rectifiers and inverters do not run with perfect efficiency, there are losses and if those losses add up to more than what the AC inductive losses over a stretch of line would be it makes no sense at all to use them. Furthermore, if an arc ever starts on a DC line, there HAS TO be a short power outage to extinguish it. AC lines self extinguish in one cycle automatically.
Despite a few people saying DC makes my suspicions irrelevant, upon checking for recent technology changes I found I am completely correct and I am not budging on my main premise – that there is no rational reason to tamper with the grid frequency.
Also:
Phasing is everything. Get more than 30 degrees before or behind the phase and you are toast. If you do not understand why frequency matters, stay off the subject. It's not a matter of ideal or not ideal, it's a matter of POOF!. You may think you are doing a service by going around telling people I am full of BS, but it is very common for electricians to not understand what functions frequency performs and it is beyond virtually all of them to understand that you cannot have two dominant frequencies from different sources on the same line without encountering severe problems.
Frequency matters a LOT MORE THAN VOLTAGE, INFINITELY MORE because excess voltage does not go on a continuously proceeding march forward. A high voltage on a line will stay where it is, but a different frequency will walk forward on a phase until it lands directly opposite. Things will trip out long before that happens. Any frequency deviation between two signal sources will put one source wave form negative to the other source positive very rapidly. A full phase misalignment will represent an RMS voltage difference between both sources that is TWICE the RMS voltage of each source if they are the same voltage to begin with, and they are 180 out from each other. Yes I know 3 phase is 120 degrees per phase but I was not all too excited about trying to explain three phase power in an article mostly read by people who do not deal with electricity.
I have seen countless electricians mistake harmonics for "frequency variation" and then run around saying the place runs on "70 HZ!". Harmonics can be pesky, but they are NOT the root frequency, and if your meter is telling you there is 70 hz on a 60 hz line, there is either a severe overspeed on your generator or you are picking up a harmonic. Suspect a harmonic. Meters will often do that, and it has nothing to do with root frequency. Not understanding this is very common among average electricians.
My reference was for single phase AC because I did not want to try to explain 3 phase power to average people. My report was not written for electricians, it needs to hit the masses to make a difference.
I am dead right about inverted phases and frequency creep, interconnected systems have to hit the EXACT SAME FREQUENCY DEAD ON, even being off a fraction of a percent will quickly be the equivalent of shorting opposite phases.
Leading the phase and lagging the phase DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A FREQUENCY DIFFERENCE. Lots of places might try pushing the phase to get more power out or correct a lagging power factor. That is not the same thing as producing a different frequency altogether. That is something I did not put in the report because it is far too complex for average people but I know there are plenty of electricians out there who actually think that pushing the phase requires you to run at a higher frequency; it does not. It changes the shape of the ouput wave form unless too many power facilities do it simultaneously, and then they all go up together, there is NEVER a "different" frequency on the grid in one location in relation to another. The entire premise of this report is that there can never be two different root frequencies present on the grid. It is not possible to have that happen, and if the East ever does run up to a different frequency it will require being disconnected from other parts of the grid which are running slower. On an interconnected grid that should not happen, it should all stay at the exact same frequency between interconnected regions. The AP report clearly states that they want DIFFERENT FREQUENCIES ON THE SAME GRID. THAT CANNOT HAPPEN UNLESS REGIONS ARE NOT CONNECTED.
I am sure there are a few who will comment about the fact that capacitors are used to correct a lagging power factor, but there are many ways to do it. Capacitors are ONE WAY to correct lagging power factors but when it comes to heavy duty correction, they are lacking compared to running a synchronous motor with an over excited field or a generator dedicated to pushing the lag forward. Linemen do not come across anything other than capacitors. There are other ways.

 

 

 And even if short distribution lines were running isolated regions by inverter only, For what reason would we have to accept frequency inaccuracies amounting to 14 seconds a day? Cheap dollar store watches can hit that accuracy, so what plausible reason could be offered to support accepting it when any inverter used on a distribution line would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars? Can't put a $30 part in it to keep the frequency to within a half second a day? HOGWASH! They ALL have the ability to output very accurately. Nowadays we should be demanding a MORE ACCURATE GRID FREQUENCY, if it could be done; IT CANNOT.

White House Fraud and Deception

June 30th, 2011 by

DOD Inspector General Unmasks Military Study

Mike Scruggs

 

The Department of Defense Inspector General has charged that the White House study evaluating the impact of open homosexuality on the military was a fraud and that the conclusions used to convince Congress that there would be no serious damage done to military preparedness were false.

 

 It should not come as a surprise by now that the Obama Administration would engage in deception to pass legislation harmful to national security, the healthcare of most Americans, and the economy. President Obama and his close allies in Congress have consistently placed radical social change and socialist ideology far above national security, fiscal responsibility, and traditional American values. On healthcare, immigration, military preparedness, foreign policy, and other issues, the President seems to have little regard for truth. Early in the Senate hearings on repealing DADT (Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell), Senator Jeff Sessions (R, AL) accused the President’s Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mullen, of preordaining the results to suit the President’s wishes.

 

The White House promised the military that a survey of 400,000 military personnel would be taken seriously. However, the conclusions of the study were written and shown to a “former news anchor” three days before any troops were even surveyed. The survey questions were also slanted to get the results the President wanted to show.  Many critical issues were ignored, as were previous data and conclusions from the 1993 DADT study. Unfortunately for the Obama Administration, the 2010 report was also leaked to Elaine Donnelly, President of the Center for Military Readiness (CMR).

 

Using the same data, the CMR showed that the White House’s conclusions were contrary to what factual data had been collected. Moreover, the study did not even address many substantial problems that senior military officers believe might seriously degrade U.S. military morale, preparedness, and combat effectiveness.  For example, no consideration was given to differences between combat operations and support operations. The fact that the CMR did not have access to the report except by leak ought also to ring some alarm bells about the administration’s openness

 

As I pointed out last week, much of the Obama Team’s persuasion was based on iffy anecdotal stories rather than solid statistics and analysis. In addition, White House spokespersons have tried to make military service a civil right trumping military effectiveness. This wild-liberal type of thinking could seriously jeopardize not only military effectiveness, but also the lives of thousands of soldiers, sailors, and airmen, and the freedom and safety of millions of American civilians. No one has a right to be a soldier, Marine, or pilot, any more than they have to be starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys.

 

According to World Net Daily, the Obama Administration deliberately leaked a false statistic to put Congress in a favorable mood to repeal DADT. The leak was that 70 percent of military personnel were either favorable or neutral to open homosexuality in the military. The CMR showed that the data actually indicated that 82 percent of military personnel considered the proposed changes to be negative or neutral. This would indicate that no more than 18 percent of military personnel are actually favorable to open homosexuality in the military.

 

Thinking people should also note the analytically incompetent and deceptive bunching of positive and negative opinions with neutral opinions. In addition, many military personnel felt pressured not to be negative on the change.

 

Just before passage of the DADT repeal, the Obama Administration sent in a high ranking black Army general to lecture and intimidate field grade officers and high ranking NCOs into going along with the change, indicating compliant thinking would be necessary for a successful career. His message was that allowing openly gay and lesbian lifestyles in the military was comparable to the civil rights movement of the 1960s. At least one courageous black senior NCO protested this comparison during one of the general’s lectures. Most others, however, listened in resentful or intimidated silence. The new rules will have zero tolerance penalties for discrimination against LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered) personnel.

 

The 1993 DADT study brought up several important considerations that were not addressed by the 2010 study.

 

  • Given the high cost of AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases associated with homosexual lifestyles, what would be the fiscal impact on military healthcare and the Veterans Administration?

  • What would be the cost of additional litigation by homosexual activists?
  • What would be the moral impact on chaplains and others with strong traditional moral and religious convictions? Would it discourage traditional-minded Christians from serving in the military?
  • What costs would be necessary to prevent unwanted sexual advances?
  • Will strict compliance to politically correct acceptance and enforcement of homosexual “civil rights” devastate heterosexual recruitment and retention? Independent polls, including Zogby, indicate that this will be a sizable problem.

 

The Obama Administration and homosexual activist groups have made much of favorable public opinion polls of adults—not necessarily voters or even citizens. However, basing critical military decisions on polling people who have no military

experience ought to be seen for what it is—stupid and dangerous.   

 

The Obama Administration and supporting homosexual activist groups have proudly pointed to 25 nations that allow open homosexuality in their military. The armies of most of these nations, however, rely on the United States for their defense, and could not stand up to the Chinese, Russians, or Iranians for 48 hours on their own. Every citizen is required to do military service in Israel, and the Germans, French, and British have encountered significant problems.

 

President Obama is destroying our military capability and effectiveness. Once lost, they will not be easy to fix.


OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Along with the VA no longer allowing Prayer at military funerals, my guess is that

Obama wants all Christians out of the military so when Martial Law is activated there

won't be any reluctance to kill Americans protesters.

MAMA'S DON'T LET YOUR BABIES GROW UP TO BE SOLDIERS!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Interrogatories about the Constitution and American Law

READthe yellow highlighted sections posted below this message.
FACT:  Truth is inconvenient.  It causes individuals to become uncomfortable with what they know.

COMMENT: Per a question to me last Saturday, I am rerunning two Interrogatories for those who need-to-know.  According to the research in legal and academic circles, the Zionists are Jesuits who are under the control of the Vatican/King of England/The Crown (i.e., Jesuit Rothchild bankers).  They created the modern state of Israel, through the communist/Jesuit controlled United Nations . ..for the PURPOSE of using the Jews as a shield for their activities, which is creating the New World Order.  They have always used the Jewish people as a shield . .. because the Jewish religion makes the Jew convenient.  The Protestant and Catholic memberships are totally ignorant of this fact and will always defend the Jews; thereby, providing security for the military wing of the Vatican, who is undermining every nation on earth. The Jesuit General has his office in the US Pentagon . . .  His name is Adolfo Nicholas Pachon…

Interrogatories about the Constitution and American Law
By R.E. Sutherland, M.Ed./sciences

Part One

OBJECTIVE:If you do not know where you came from, then you certainly cannot know where you are going.  It is time to review history and pull together some of the lesser known facts for edification and purification of what America was, is and chooses to become.  Seek the Truth, and then you will become aware of the shackles on your ankles and the blinders on your eyes.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

QUOTE:“The reason why [deception cannot be forced on an Individual] is because deception has to be first created, then conveyed, and then accepted by others – then only can deception succeed.  Deception can only find fertility in a human mind to the extent that mind is receptive to it; similarly, in a sense, it actually takes two people to manufacture a successful lie: the first to utter the lie, and the second to accept it as such.” –1985, Invisible Contracts, by  George Mercier.

1.  Who funded the grants for the land development in the original 13 Colonies?
ANSWER:There were several entities involved in exploring America, but the King of England was the point of contact. Other countries said that they had claim to lands; however, they were not clever enough to get the paperwork straight, nor were they strong enough to defend their legal Claim; hence, they lost both the legal and physical battle for occupation of America.

2.  What were the names,  founding dates, and connections to the King of England by the original 13 colonies?

[SOURCE: World Book Encyclopedia (WBE)]

ANSWER:
1067-Virginia – Charter by King to the Virginia Company of London
1620-Massachusetts – Charter granted by the King to the Puritans
1623-New Hampshire – King appointed Council of New England for settlement
1624-New York – Charter by King to Duke of York
1622-Connecticut – Charter by King to John Winthrop
1634-Maryland – Charter by King to Lord Baltimore
1636-Rhode Island – King granted “Charter of Rhode Island & Providence Plantations”
1638-Delaware – Charter by King to Duke of York
1643-Pennsylvania – Grant by King to William Penn
1653-North Carolina – Grant by King to Sir Robert Heath
1660-New Jersey – Grant by King to Duke of York
1670-South Carolina – Grant by King to Eight “Lords Proprietors”
1733-Georgia – Grant by King to a Corporation entitled:  “Trustees for Establishing the Colony of Georgia in America

3.  Who owned the colonies?
ANSWER: The legal contracting documents for the colonies were of three types, but all of them were under the direction of the King of England:

(a) royal – under the direct control of the King
(b) proprietary-under the control of a Proprietor, an appointed by the King
(c) corporate-under a charter obtained from the King of England by a company with stockholders. [SOURCE: WBE]

4.  Did each colony have its own form of government?
ANSWER:Each colony had a governor and a legislature; however, the King of England appointed the governor over the royal colonies.  In proprietary colonies, the King appointed the Proprietor, who appointed the governor.  In Connecticut and Rhode Island the people elected the governor; however, Connecticut was under the Fundamental Orders until it received a royal charter in 1662 and Rhode Island was under the English charter of 1663, which served as its constitution.  [SOURCE: WBE]

5.  Did the colonies have laws?
ANSWER:The laws that were passed by any of the colonial legislatures had to be approved by the English government.  Governors appointed by the King had the responsibility of carrying out his orders.  The King expected them to enforce the laws of England, especially acts of Parliament that regulated colonial trade.  [SOURCE:  WBE]

 

6.  Did Christopher Columbus discover and claim any of the original 13 colonies for Spain or Portugal?
ANSWER:No.  Columbus traveled around the areas of Jamaica, Costa Rica, Panama, etc. [SOURCE: WBE]

7.  What is a Commodity Exchange?

ANSWER: “Commodity exchanges are voluntary trade associations.  They are called organized markets, because all members must follow certain trading rules.  All business, for example, must be conducted on the trading floor within certain hours.  Rules set the commission (fee) that may be charged in a transaction, and the time within which payment must be made.” [SOURCE: WBE]

8.  Did the colonies have connections to a Commodity Exchange in England?
ANSWER: Yes, It was called the Board of Trade (1621-1970)
QUOTE:
URL: http://webarchive.nationalarchives.gov.uk/
“The1621 Privy Council, directed by the King, ‘to take into their consideration, the true causes of the decay of trade and scarcity of coin within the Kingdom and to consult the means for the removing of these inconveniences.’  As a result a committee of inquiry was set up named ‘The Committee of Privy Council for Trade and Foreign Plantations’ (this is still the formal title of the ‘Board of Trade’) and this committee can be regarded as the germ of the Board of Trade.”

“Throughout the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, trade matters remained the responsibility of Privy Council Committees.  In 1696 William III set up a body of eight paid Commissioners ‘for promoting the trade of our Kingdom and for inspecting and improving our plantations in America and elsewhere.’”

9.  Does the word “plantation” mean a large farming enterprise?
ANSWER: No.  The definition found in Burke onConciliation of the Colonies stated, “Plantations–colonies; the plantings of a new society or race.  The term is regularly so used in Acts and Charters, and has no reference whatever to cultivation of the soil.”

 

10.  Did the King of England operate on his own as a free agent in the creation of the colonies?
ANSWER:No.  The King of England was bound to the Treaty of 1213.  The following brief history explains who was actually in charge of the colonies.

QUOTE:
[ INTRO:  The King refused to accept Stephen Langton as the Archbishop of Canterbury by Pope Innocent III in 1208, and the King was excommunicated from the Catholic Church by the Pope for his disobedience to contractual agreements to the Crown.  The Pope and the King owed money to the Crown bankers, so the Pope had to reign in a naughty King in order to avoid default to The Crown.]

“Faced with defeat by the forces aligned against him by the Vatican, King John ran for cover, and sought to regain the support of the Pope.  He returned the title to his kingdoms of England and Ireland to the Pope, as vassals, swore submission and loyalty to him, accepted Langton as Archbishop of Canterbury, and offered the Pope a vassal’s bond of fealty and homage, an annual tribute of 1,000 marks (equivalent to a bit more than 666 pounds sterling) and the return of the Church property he had seized when he had rebelled against it.

“Two months later, in July 1213, King John was: absolved of excommunication, at Winchester, by the return Arch Bishop of Canterbury Langton.

“Three months later, on October 3, 1213, King John ratified his surrender of his kingdoms to the Pope, who by virtue of his position as Vicar of Christ claims ownership of everything and everyone, on earth in the tradition of the Nazarene-Communist supercapitalist superdictatorship that is true fundamentalist Christianity.

“On April 21, 1214, the Pope, in Rome, formally accepted King John’s surrender of his kingdoms and his pledge of vassal (together with the moneys paid in tribute); and three months later, in July 1214, Pope Innocent III raised the interdict against the English.

“Thus the Pope assured the English of ‘access to Heaven,’ from which they had been ‘barred’ by their king’s opposition to the church’s Nazarene, or Communist, totalitarianism and denial of civil rights to mankind.”

[SOURCE: British Museum Publication G. R. C. Davis, entitled Magna Carta (211), and American Counsel of Christian Laymen: How Red is The Federal Counsel of Churches.]

11.  Did the Treaty of 1213 actually affect the ownership of the colonies?

ANSWER:The Vatican owned the colonies, but let the King serve as the manager for the enterprise.  The Vatican was busy fighting Crusades and expanding The Kingdom.

12.  What did the Treaty of 1213 actually say?
ANSWER:The original Treaty of 1213 is located in the London Archives and is available to Ph.D.s; however, a copy of a translation has been made available.  It remains in power to this day.  It states:

QUOTE:The King’s Concessions of May 15, 1213 to the Pope–“We wish it to be known to all of you, through this our charter, furnished with our seal, that inasmuch as we had offended in many ways God and our mother the holy church, and in consequence are known to have very much needed the divine mercy, and can not offer anything worthy for making due satisfaction to God and to the church unless we humiliate ourselves and our kingdoms: we, wishing to humiliate ourselves for Him who humiliated Himself for us unto death, the grace of the Holy Spirit inspiring,not induced by force or compelled by fear, but of our own good and spontaneous will and by the common counsel of our barons, do offer and freely concede to God and His holy apostles Peter and Paul and to our mother the holy Roman church, and to our lord pope Innocent and to his Catholic successors, the whole kingdom of England and the whole kingdom Ireland, with all their rights and appurtenances, for the remission of our sins and of those of our whole race as well for the living as for the dead; and now receiving and holding them, as it were a vassal, from God and the Roman church, in the presence of that prudent man Pandulph, subdeacon and of the household of the lord pope Innocent, and his catholic successors and the Roman church, according to the form appended; and in the presence of the lord pope, if we shall be able to come before him, we shall do liege homage to him;binding our successors aid our heirs by our wife forever, in similar manner to perform fealty and show homage to him who shall be chief pontiff at that time, and to the Roman church without demur.  Concessions of May 15, 1213 to the Pope.” [END QUOTE]
End of Part 1

Part Two
OBJECTIVE: If you do not know where you came from, then you certainly cannot know where you are going.  It is time to review history and pull together some of the lesser known facts for edification and purification of what America was, is and chooses to become.  This is important.

13.  Who were the members of the British Board of Trade?

ANSWER: The Board included agents of the King of England, members of the Privy Council (i.e., legislative bodies), and the Archbishop of Canterbury who represented the Church of England. [SOURCE: World Book Encyclopedia (WBE)]

14.  Were Jews allowed on the Board of trade?
ANSWER: No.  The Board refused to allow either the Lombards or the Jewish moneylenders onto their Board.  They were segregated because their religious rules made them useful for the Board.  The following quote is an excellent explanation.
QUOTE:  The Federal Reserve Conspiracy and Rockefeller (1952)
By Emanuel Josephson

“Since commerce and money are the livelihoods of nations and their peoples, the control of money is the obvious key to the control of nations and the world. …Rome’s successor the Holy Roman Empire dissimulated its interest in money and its power.  This was in accord with its professed tenets of Nazarene, theistic Communism.

“Under ecclesiastic Canon Law, even profits in business transactions were decreed to be the cardinal sin and capital offense of ‘usury’ As late as the sixteenth century, one hundred businessmen were burned at the stake in Geneva, as a penalty under Church law, for making profits in their business transactions.  Title to all wealth , as well as to the person and lives of all the earth, are claimed by the Church, on the ground that their ownership is divinely vested in the Pope as the Vicar of Jesus Christ on earth.

“Thus theistic, Nazarene Communism, and the ‘modern’ religion that goes by the name of Communism and is supposedly atheist, both are basically supercapitalist and both mask their grab for money and wealth.

“Title to all wealth was vested in the Church and in its champion ‘knights,’ who at the same time assumed the role of so-called ‘protectors,’ much like the present day labor leaders of their vassals whom they mercilessly enslaved and looted.

“Both Churchmen and lay knights used the despised Jews for the conduct of their usurious financial operations, in order to avoid ‘sinning’ and the death penalty that it involved.  The Jews proved very useful and handy for that purpose. Their use was justified by their ‘CHRISTIAN’ masters in a manner that they were taught by their faith was incontrovertible.  Jews were damned and doomed by their faith and their failure to accept the divinity of Jesus and the perversion of His teachings by the Jewish merchant, Saul of Tarsus, alias St. Paul, opined the Churchmen; and therefore, it was ‘good work’ to hasten them to damnation.

“This they did by forcing their Jewish serfs to engage, as their pawns, in the ‘sin’ and ‘crime’ of ‘usury’ by which was meant the charging of interest as well as loan sharking and engaging in profitable commerce, for their Christian, ecclesiastical bosses.

“Often the Churchmen barred the Jews, by their orders and laws, from engaging in any other vocation than those to which the stigma of usury was attached, especially loan-sharking, as their agents.  This was a particular advantageous set up for the Churchmen.  For if the Jew was merciful and failed to extract from the victims everything that they possessed (i.e., the last drop of blood), he was burned at the stake as a ‘heretic.’

“On the other hand, if the Jew mercilessly followed orders of his priestly boss, was honest with his boss and amassed a fortune for him and for himself, there was nothing to bar his Christian master from exercising his cupidity and robbing his faithful loan-shark by charging him with the ‘sin’ of usury, confiscating the fortune he had made in his service, and with great hypocritic show of ‘piety,’ burn him at the stake—‘to ensure his salvation.’

“The victorious Lombard invaders of the Holy Roman Empire changed the financial situation in much the same manner as have the latter day Maffia extortioners and blackmailers.  Seizing control of the Church, they gave themselves ‘dispensation’ to disregard the Canon Law on usury.  They openly engaged in it from the very steps of the Vatican.

“Dispensation from the Canon on Usury was subsequently granted by the Vatican, in the 15th century, to the German Fuggers, the Rockefellers of that era.  Their profits from commerce, usury and the sale of papal dispensations, as agents of the Vatican, grew rapidly, as did their ‘payoff’ to the church.  They were heaped with Papal honors.  Both their grasping greed and merciless loan-sharking earned for them distrust and terror.  When one of their number was elevated to the rank of Cardinal, the Churchmen feared that the Fuggers would reach out and steal the Vatican itself.  They then decided that their Jewish pawn were more completely at their mercy, more amenable and safer.

“Trusteeship of the fortune of one of the wealthiest Christian rulers of Europe, whose confidence had been earned by honest and trustworthy dealings during the Napoleonic wars, is the source of the wealth and influence that the Rothechilds acquired in the first decades of the 19th century.

“Subsequently, after making a large loan to the hard pressed Vatican, that no Christian would consider making, they became the fiscal agents of the Vatican, received Papal decorations and preferments, and enforced the policies dictated by the Church.  It was largely in this sense that they were ‘international bankers.’  And the policies dictated by them were in effect the policies dictated by the Church.  They enforced those policies through their establishments in many lands.

“An amusing story is told of the earliest relations of the Rothschilds with the Vatican.  The Vatican found itself short of ready cash after almost half a century of war waged on it for the Jesuit Order by one of its unordained members, Adam Weishaupt, to avenge its abolition, in 1773, as ‘immoral and a menace to the Church and the Faith’ by short lived Pope Clement XIV in his Papal breve Dominus Ac Redemptor.

“Weishaupt and his fellow Jesuits cut off the income to the Vatican by launching and leading the French Revolution; by directing Napoleon’s conquest of Catholic Europe; by the revolt against the Church led by such priests as Father Hidalgo, in Mexico and Latin America; by eventually having napoleon throw Pope Pius Vii in jail at Avignon until he agreed, as the price for his release, to reestablish the Jesuit Order.  This Jesuit war on the Vatican was terminated by the Congress of Vienna and by the secret, 1822 Treaty of Verona. . .

“The Rothschilds sought to extend their financial and political dominion to the United States, for themselves primarily to serve their Vatican masters.  The Vatican’s interest in the U.S. Republic was clearly revealed in the Treaty of Verona, in which the Jesuit Order pledged itself, as the price of reestablishment, to destroy ‘the works of Satan’ that it had accomplished in setting up, by revolts, representative governments such as republics and so called ‘democracies.’

“Senator Robert Owen pointed out, in the Senate, that the prime target to which the Vatican and the ‘Holy Alliance’ directed the subversive and destructive activities of the Society of Jesus is the United States, [See Congressional Record, April 25, 1916], as well as other republics in the Western Hemisphere.  This plot, he related, was the target at which the Monroe Doctrine was directed.

“The Rothschild-Vatican cabal unsuccessfully attempted to gain control over the power of the purse in the U.S. through the First and Second Bank of the United States.  They were established under the emergency powers granted the President by the Constitution, as temporary institutions to tide the country through the periods of financial stress occasioned by the Revolutionary and 1812 Wars.” [END QUOTE]

15.  Did the original 13 colonies have a court system?
ANSWER:Yes.

QUOTE: “Encyclopedia of American History – “in 1697 the British Board of Trade, under the Navigation Act, established vice-admiralty courts in all the colonies.  These courts had jurisdiction over Trade, ordinary maritime cases as well as prize.  It even granted jurisdiction by the Act of 1722 over infringements concerning timber.  These Admiralty courts, set up under the Townshend Acts, centered final control in America.” [Source: The New History of America, by The Informer, page 4]

16.  What were the types of jurisdiction assigned to the courts in the colonies?
ANSWER: Admiralty and maritime.

QUOTE:“Admiralty, by Benedict, 1850:
“Its necessary effect [the Act] was, however, to start the courts on that system of practice, and really to impose upon them, in admiralty and maritime cases, the civil law practice, as that under which they must continue to administer justice, even after the expiration of that act, until further provision could be made.”

“Section 105–The Purpose of the Constitutional Grant–The Essential Harmony of the Maritime Law.  The grand purpose of the Constitution was to unify the several states , the whole people, in their national, international, and interstate relations and all other purposes were subordinate and ancillary to this.

“Section 123 – The commission to the Governor as Vice-Admiral was very full, granting, in language so clear that it cannot be misunderstood, an admiralty jurisdiction as wide and beneficial as the most zealous supporters of the English Admiralty ever claimed for it.”

17.  What is the legal meaning of the word:  “federal”?

ANSWER:The word “federal” simply put means “contract.” 
QUOTES:From The American College Dictionary, 1947:
 “Federal – 1.  Of or pertaining to a compact or a league, esp. a league between nations or states.”
“Compact–an agreement between parties; a covenant; a contract.”

NOTE:The more modern dictionaries are missing the original definitions as the university professors began to reshape society by gradually changing the definitions of words our students learn and use.

18.  Did Commercial Contracts in the United States evolve from something else?
ANSWER: Yes.
QUOTEfrom Section 065, “Invisible Contracts,” by George Mercier:
“Here in the United States, in a Commercial contract factual setting, the word ‘covenant’ is an Old English Law Merchant origin, and now means only a few clauses within a larger contract. . .”

19.  Is there a difference between Government commerce and Private commerce in law?

ANSWER:Yes.
QUOTEfrom Section 387, “Invisible Contracts,” by George Mercier:
“Admiralty Jurisdiction is the KING’S COMMERCE of the High Seas . .. But as for that slice of Commerce going out on the High Seas without the King as a party, that Commerce is called Maritime Jurisdiction, and so Maritime is the private Commerce that transpires in a marine environment.  At least, that distinction between Admiralty and Maritime is the way things once were, but no more.”

20.  Do Admiralty courts still exist today?
ANSWER:Yes, it is the United States Federal Court system.
QUOTE:
“This is the type of court that exists today and why we cannot bring a pure Article of the Bill of Rights argument into a contract [i.e., federal] court of the Law-Merchant in their civil law.  As Benedict states at Section 5,” . .. The civil law was held to be the law of admiralty, and the course of proceedings in admiralty, closely resembled the civil law practice.”  All maritime revenue cases, whether State or United States, deals in contract. …
[Source: The New History of America, by The Informer, page 5.]

QUOTEfrom Section 049,  “Invisible Contracts,” by George Mercier.
“In such administrative enforcement proceedings under grievances arising out of privileges and contracts that Congress created, Federal Judges are acting MINISTERIALLY as Legislative Court, functioning as an extension of the agency for the King, and not Judicially as an Article III Court acting like neutral and disinterested referees calling the shots as umpires between adversaries; and so some steps taken by the Judge acting MINISTERIALLY, to shorten the proceedings or otherwise silence the Defendant when irrelevant subject matter is being discussed, are largely non-reversible on appeal.  In Northern Pipeline vs Marathon Pipe Line ]458 U.S. 50 (1982)], the Supreme Court ruled that Congress can create non-Article III LEGISLATIVE COURTS in three areas: Territorial Courts, Military Courts Martial, and in disputes involving privileges that Congress created in the first place [MARATHON, id., at pages 64 et seq.].  Participating in that closed private domain of King’s [government] Commerce is very much accepting and benefitting from a privilege created by Congress.

QUOTE:
“A case in admiralty does not, in fact, arise under the Constitution or Laws of the United States.”
American Ins. Co. V Canter, 1 Pet. 511, 545 (1828).

QUOTE: “We don’t use the word constitution in this court,” said the Aiken Federal Judge during a hearing for a Freedom of Information Act violation in the City of Aiken.  This author was the Plaintiff, and was awarded damages for the failure of the city to give information per the FOIA, but no discussion about the constitutional merits of the case were allowed to be discussed..

21.  The U.S. Constitution states in Article I, Section 8, “The Congress shall have Power . .. To borrow Money on the credit of the United States; . .. To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures”.  So, why is there also paper money if it is not constitutional?

ANSWER: It all began in 1751 with the English Parliament.
QUOTEfrom  Source: The New History of America, by The Informer, page 7:
“In March of 1751, the British Board of Trade presented Parliament with a Restraining Act, which barred the Colonies, by law, from issuing paper money and letters of Credit. This gave the King’s orders the validity of formal law.  The Colonies didn’t buy it, for it destroyed their control of the trade.  You see, there was no gold or silver being mined in America.  They had to rely on gold and silver from other countries.  England had most of the gold.

“On July 10, 1754, the Confederacy was born because of this, so they could issue paper money, only on their joint order.  Ben Franklin had long advocated this.

“In March of 1775, the Pennsylvania Assembly borrowed money and issued bills of Credit without authorization of either King of Governor.  The Board of Trade tried another ploy and said that Gold and Silver have intrinsic value, and therefore, should be used by the Colonies.  Because of ‘them’ issuing ‘paper money’ it ‘ruins the Colonies,’ so said the Tories.

“Now get this people, Franklin replied to the contrary saying that paper money served as a medium of exchange and credit had made possible the growth of the Colonies and their trade.  He told the Board of Trade that the Tories argued that the paper money issued by the colonies was a dilution of their control of wealth.

“This explains why the federal government is denied the power to issue currency other than coin or to set up or charter banks.  But they do it under ‘emergency power.’  This is why the present day private Federal Reserve System, counterpart of the British Board of Trade, runs this country today.

“Now you know why the Crown initiated the coin only clause in the Constitution, so the private bankers could control the paper credit.  Paper is NOT money.”

QUOTEfrom Section 390, “Invisible Contracts,’ by George Mercier:
“However, today in the United States, all Commercial contracts that private parties enter into with each other that are under Maritime Jurisdiction, are now also under Admiralty: Reason: the beneficial use and reticulation of Federal Reserve Notes makes the King [government] an automatic silent Equity third party to the arrangements.”

Fr. Adolfo Nicholas chosen Jesuit Leader

 

Fr. Adolfo Nicolas, SJ is the new world-wide leader of the Society of Jesus succeeding Fr. Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, 79, who had asked to resign because of his age.

Fr. Nicolas was elected Superior General Jan. 19 at General Congregation 35, which has gathered Jesuits from around the globe to elect a new superior and discern and discuss the work and procedures of the Society in the future. Spanish-born Fr. Nicolas, 71, was the moderator of the Jesuit Conference of East Asia and Oceania. He was ordained to the priesthood in Tokyo and is the former Jesuit provincial of Japan. He also had served as director of the East Asian Pastoral Institute in Manila.

"About the future there is little I can say," Fr. Nicolas said in his first meeting with the media. "The reason is simple: I have just begun. When in the Congregation meeting they speak of Father General, I always think they mean Fr. Kolvenbach; I do not yet realize that it is me. My current attitude is to listen, listen and obey. As you know, the General Congregation has authority over Fr. General. During the General Congregation I am subject to the Congregation. If the Congregation tells me what needs to be done, what direction to take in the future, I should obey, that is my mission. Therefore what is important to me now is to know what the General Congregation wishes; as well as how to respond to the challenges that the Holy Father has sent us, about which we are reflecting very seriously, so as to give a response that can help the Church, not ourselves. I hope to meet with the Holy Father soon whenever he calls me to have an initial meeting. After all this, when the Congregation Fathers have gone, I will begin to work, to see how to respond and make all of this into reality."

 

The election by the 217 Jesuits came after four days of prayer, silence and quiet one-on-one conversations among the voting delegates, who were chosen to represent the more than 19,000 Jesuits around the world.

Fr. Thomas H. Smolich, SJ president of the Jesuit Conference of the United States, told Catholic News Service that Fr. Nicolas "is a great man. He is inspirational, he is holy and he represents a great bridge among the various cultures in the church."

The resignation of Fr. Kolvenbach and the election of Fr. Nicolas was just the beginning of the General Congregation's work; as it will focus on questions of Jesuit identity and governance, vocations, mission and collaboration with the laity.

Born April 29, 1936, in Palencia, Spain, Father Nicolas entered the Jesuit novitiate in 1953. After earning a degree in philosophy in Spain, he was sent to Japan to study theology. He was ordained a priest in Tokyo in 1967. After earning a master's degree in theology from the Jesuit-run Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome, he returned to Japan and taught systematic theology at Sophia University in Tokyo.

In 1978-84 he was director of the East Asian Pastoral Institute in Manila. In 1991-1993 he was rector of the program for Jesuit scholastics in Japan, and in 1993 he was appointed provincial for Japan. Before being named moderator of the Jesuit Conference of East Asia and Oceania in 2004, he spent three years working in a poor immigrant parish in Tokyo, living with and ministering to Filipino and other Asian immigrants.

Father Nicolas speaks Spanish, Japanese, English, French and Italian.

How Real Freedom Works

Tuesday, June 28, 2011 – by Staff Report

 

Managerialist America … Mark Roe … a professor at Harvard Law School, asks how capitalist America really is- in a stimulating Project Syndicate piece. Mr. Roe suggests that the level of state ownership of capital, or the level of government intervention in the economy, may offer a misleading picture of America's political economy. – The Economist

Dominant Social Theme: America is not as free as it seems to be. The government needs to pass laws to empower shareholders. Then shareholders will run corporations and America's Constitutional republic shall blossom once more.

Free-Market Analysis: The Economist is a miserable, elitist newspaper; its standards continue to decline. Read the first sentence, above (excerpted). The professor "asks how capitalist America really is." What does that mean? How America really IS? The colloquialism is so inexact that we had to read the sentence three or four times before we decided it wasn't some sort of typo.

Then there's the anonymity that The Economist continues to adopt. Anonymity has an ancient and respectable history, but The Economist regularly runs anonymous first person articles. This is ludicrous. This column, "American politics – Democracy in America," provides us with the following sentence: "To my mind, all this suggests a structural antagonism not between the rich and the not-rich, but between the corporate managerial class, the diffuse crowd of individuals who actually own the companies the managerial class so jealously control, and the rest of us …"

Whose mind is this exactly? The Economist isn't telling, or if it is, we couldn't find the byline. Usually, anonymous articles, if they introduce a personal perspective, do so using "we." This is how the New Yorker offered its witty, anonymous columns. But to run an anonymous first-person column is a kind of literary degradation in our view. Sure, it's done – but why? It's a perversion of the anonymity that the magazine seeks to use.

The Economist is increasingly perverse in any case. As a publication that was once, a hundred years ago, republican and is now a solidly ensconced elitist mouthpiece, The Economist has come on hard times from an editorial standpoint. During the current resurgence of free-market thinking, The Economist is in the unenviable position (as a self-styled thought-leadership magazine) of having to square the proverbial circle.

It has to pretend to be free-market oriented when in fact it is entirely corporatist. It is through corporations and capitalism that the powers-that-be disguise their authoritarian and anti-freedom agenda, and nowhere is this more evident and obvious than in the pages of this eminent publication.

It is, in fact, a major dominant social theme of the Anglosphere power elite – that corporations and capitalism are analogous to free-market, agrarian republicanism. We sometimes use capitalism interchangeably with free-markets, but we shouldn't. Capitalism has some fairly specific overtones and the two terms are increasingly differentiated.

A free-market is simply that, an untrammeled venue. Capitalism is much different. Capitalism implies corporatism, and the corporate state. Corporations are essentially artificial creatures, brought to life by judicial decision-making. In a free-market republic, corporations likely wouldn't exist. Business, as we have pointed out before, would have a partnership orientation (as it once did). Commerce would be a good deal more accountable.

Corporatism is in fact the great bane of free markets. Corporations shove free-markets toward gigantism and away from transparency. Without corporations, business would likely be conducted by flexible linkages of entrepreneurial partnerships. That's not how The Economist sees things, though. For Economist journos and big thinkers, capitalism CONSTITUTES a free market. The problem from The Economist's perspective is how to rationalize capitalism so that it can be further perfected.

In fact, anybody who wants to look at Western society would conclude that both Europe and America are increasingly authoritarian, police states. Corporations function within consumerist parameters set by federal governments. (See other article, this issue.) The Economist sees none of this. "One might infer that America is very capitalist," the article informs us. Really? "Capital largely controls the economy," the article adds." This is true, though the bigger question is … who controls the capital?

That's not an issue The Economist is ever likely to touch. What does concern the writer of this column, whoever he/she is, is that the current system become ever-more amenable to marketplace dictates. To this end, it quotes Mark Roe's recent research approvingly.

What concerns Roe apparently is that the ownership of capital is often extremely diffuse, "spread over many thousands of shareholders." Thus, these shareholders really have little say over the corporations they own. "The people with real power are the class of managers and executives," Roe writes disapprovingly.

Being a sincere sort, Roe wants to fix this. What America has now, he believes is a "managerial" society and he wants to give power back to the "owners." He is dissatisfied with things as they are. "The law is clear: the corporation's board of directors, not its shareholders, runs the business," he observes. Managers are insulated from market authority.

There are problems with such a managerialist society. "Managers of established firms continue money-losing ventures for too long, pay themselves too much relative to their and the company's performance, and too often fail to act aggressively enough to enter new but risky markets. "

What's the solution? "An 'ownership society' worth the name would both increase shareholders control in corporate governance and make it much easier to push out incumbent managers by means of 'hostile' takeovers."

Actually, Roe doesn't come right out and say this in the article from which The Economist column is drawn. But the conclusion is warranted; Roe implies this solution in his own article.

Ironically – there are so very many ironies inherent in modern regulatory democracy – the solution to managerial-capitalist excess is to be found not in the market but in … government regulatory authorities!

It is very clear from both The Economist column and Roe's article that the Securities and Exchange Commission in particular would have to change the rules to make corporations more responsive to shareholders.

This conclusion of course is not surprising. America has traveled almost as far away from a free-market economy as the rest of the West at this point. Between a plethora of licenses, lack of available capital, aggressive regulation, environmental laws, terrorist "concerns," hyper-active taxation and central-bank initiated price-inflation, there is not much leeway left for someone who wishes to work entrepreneurially within the system as it's constituted.

There is a solution, though. It is not strictly-speaking a formal libertarian one (as libertarianism has been formalized in recent years) and does not necessarily partake of the finer points of the non-aggression principle. It is very simple, however, and hews to what we understand of natural law.

The idea is actually based on what is already happening. In America especially, people hoping to live in a freer manner are dropping out of the system as best they can. They are reasserting their anonymity and in some cases attempting to return to agrarian roots.

This was in fact the vision of Thomas Jefferson's agrarian republicanism. It was a vision that was repudiated only by the force of the American Civil War that initiated the authoritarian and statist perspective of Alexander Hamilton and the vision of the European banks that apparently backed him.

The idea would be to return as much as possible to small, voluntary, familial oriented communities that exist outside the ambit of the regulatory state. These familial units would surely be armed for defensive purposes, use honest money and would partake of private justice wherever possible.

This sort of solution removes the libertarian conversation from the sterility of the "non aggression principal" – a principal that sounds good but that in practice seems to us increasingly unworkable. What WOULD work is to simply observe history, natural law, and how human are biologically prompted to live – in small, familial-oriented communities. In such communities, historically, there was not much conversation about the non-aggression principle.

Smaller is better, correct? (Within this context, anyway.) Family is the fundament of freedom and most people biologically can't support more than 150 relationships anyway. It is no coincidence that Western power elites have attacked farming communities and emphasized urban environments. China is doing the same, even today. And nowadays, grandparents are supposed to live separately from the family in their own retirement communities. Children are aggressively provided with their own culture to separate from their parents.

Public schools and universities undermine the age-old concept of apprenticeship and enmesh the child in a network of state-approved, authoritarian notions. Religion, a communal glue, has also been undermined. Price inflation along with "women's lib" has been engendered to ensure that both husband and wife have to work, and in fact wish for the female to work, removing her from the family.

Above all, the elites have endlessly emphasized the judicial component of the state. The state is both parent and teacher; judge and jury; enforcer and incarcerator. Morality within this context is what the state says it is. We prefer Mises' definition: morality is personal.

In fact, justice can be delivered in numerous ways. Private justice would be the preferred default in our view. What is private justice? It is justice as it was practiced for thousands of years before the modern state introduced its brand of authoritarian, monopoly justice. Private justice is likely based on the principle of the honor duel and family vendettas.

It is the threat of force that impels people to a judicial negotiation, whether one wishes to negotiate face-to-face or utilize a private third-party adjudicator. Societies that practice private justice tend to be very polite. Such a communal structure may also obviate the need for a formal non aggression principle.

If the culture is organized properly, the need for such elegant conceptualizations is greatly diminished. People, in fact, are emotional and passionate beings. Conflict is a fact of life; the Ten Commandments are regularly traduced, even though people understand them well enough and try to live by all or most of them. Conflict resolution within this context is perhaps a good deal more important than first principles.

Such private justice is laissez faire and informal. Decisions reached one time may not be reached again the same way. This sort of justice is still practiced, especially in some Islamic countries where even murder is negotiated via monetary payments. Sometimes such practices may be referred to as "common law," but the modern legal industry has done its best to confuse people over what is common law. 

Today, common law is said to refer to British Common Law of the past 500-1,000 years. Such Common Law actually encompassed a fairly complex system. But REAL common law is even more basic and simpler to enforce. It was a kind of unspoken contract law, and one could argue it made no differentiation between "civil" and criminal." When a contract was broken, justice might be demanded. If justice was not sufficient, violence might ensue. 

Much of the effort of modern Western jurisprudence is spent demonizing private justice in our view. Words have been coined to describe it. "Vigilante" is one of them. The repetitive element of American Westerns is that bad eggs are eventually brought to justice by government enforces. Civilization is dependent on state authority.

Next to central banking itself, modern monopoly justice is perhaps the most important dominant social theme that Western elites have implemented. We have always predicted it will be the last meme to come under attack in this era of Internet Reformation. Most people simply cannot imagine life without state monopoly justice. And even the anarchy movement seems to prefer the non-aggression principal as a communal building block.

We suggest natural law and, as necessary, agrarian emphases. But our proposal is aspirational, not didactic. We are not trying to preach, only point out that there is more than one kind of jurisprudence and even more than one kind of justice. We think Anglosphere elites have perverted much that is decent and good in Western culture and that a harkening back to what worked once upon a time, even referentially, isn't such a bad idea.

Most people also conflate justice with a single outcome. It is not "just" that some people end up being punished differently for the same "crime." Of course, this brings up specific questions about what crime is and how the state should go about enforcing morality. The standard answer is that the state enforces one's debt to society. But one could reasonably ask what is a "debt to society," exactly, and how is to be erased by incarceration, etc.

Conclusion: The Economist article is a good example of how the assumption of monopoly justice taints almost every observable aspect of the modern conversation as regards law, business and commerce. And mainstream media literally cannot and will not conceive of an unregulated environment. Even when the conversation turns to empowerment, it is assumed – stated – that such empowerment is a regulatory function. From The Economist, we would expect nothing else.

INDOCTRINATION: A TIMELY DOCUMENTARY

June 25th, 2011 by

http://www.newswithviews.com/Murray/randy124.htm

By R.C. Murray
June 25, 2011
NewsWithViews.com

“And David said, What have I now done? Is there not a cause?” -1 Samuel 17:29

Our last presidential elections proved you could learn a lot about a fellah by the friends he keeps (i.e., Van Jones, Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, etc.). You can also learn a lot about someone or something by its enemies. The key word though is learning.

My experience as an English teacher taught me that some folks (like the socialists who are bent on destroying this country) do not want to learn. And some folks (like the proles who put the current crop of socialists in office) cannot learn. They are functionally illiterate and hopelessly dependent on taxpayers and socialist leaders to take care of them. Our public school system is the root cause of this learning disability.

Still, if I knew nothing else about a soon-to-be-released documentary called IndoctriNation, I would eagerly watch for it because of the list of enemies it has already made. Public school apostles (teachers’ unions) and George Soros’ news media propagandists began attacking IndoctriNation months ago. With the U.S. on the verge of total economic and social collapse, this is a very timely documentary.

For those of you who have never heard of this project, IndoctriNation  is a 90-minute film that explores America’s public education system through the travels of Colin Gunn, a Scottish filmmaker, actor, and homeschooling father of seven. During the last year or so, he drove across America in a big, yellow school bus on a quest to discover what America’s public schools have done to America.

With a lot of help from co-producer, Joaquin Fernandez, this part documentary-part testimonial reveals an elaborate conspiracy to replace God’s plan for training subsequent generations with a humanistic model that deliberately fragments the traditional family and undermines the Churchand its commission given by our Lord Jesus Christ.

The DVD of IndoctriNation is set to be released on August 9, 2011. The producers are currently running a “(Turn Your) Back to School” campaign at home school conventions and other venues as a lead up to the start of the 2011-2012 school year.

To those liberals who like to browse NewsWithViews for no better reason than to vent their hatred for biblical Christianity and constitutional government, before you email me with your scornful diatribe, try to understand that when we criticize your public (government) schools, we do so based on two major flaws in The System. First, the children required by law to attend public schools belong to their parents, not the government. Secondly, today’s public school system, which is really one system controlled by federal dollars, is a direct violation of the Constitution’s 1st and 10th Amendment.

Proof is found in one of IndoctriNation’s critics, who made the following comment: “…You invite people like me, formerly indifferent agnostics, to dedicate our time to stopping people like you, the enemies of all human goodness and progress.”

Since he or she and millions like him see Christians as the enemy, it’s little wonder he justifies taking our children from us as spoils of war in order to de-program them from our dangerous moral values and subversive religious beliefs.

Documentaries like IndoctriNation, books by many of the authors interviewed for this film (like Dr. Sam Blumenfeld, Chaplain Ray MooreJohn Taylor GattoDr. Bruce ShorttKarl Priest, and others, including me) and sermons by ministers (like Franklin GrahamDr. Charles StanleyDr. Erwin Lutzer and Dr. D. James Kennedy), asks the question, “Is there not a cause?” Apparently, though, our cause is a threat to supposedly indifferent but really anti-Christian folks like the above critic.

Moreover, because we are talking about our children, there should be even greater outrage from parents. There really is a cause! These are our kids they are brainwashing!

According to the film, 90 percent of Christian parents send their kids to public schools, and 88 percent of those kids will have lost their faith by the time they graduate (if they graduate). Why do you suppose that happens? Hmmmm. Films like this one, books like mine and others, and ministers with a backbone, not only have the right but the duty to warn Christian parents about what is happening to their children when they entrust them to their local government indoctrination centers – public schools. Maybe we can save some of our kids before it’s too late!

Despite what liberals claim, when the U.S. Supreme Court’s black-robed demigods decided in favor of a secular humanist in Torcaso v. Watkins (1961), it acknowledged that Secular Humanism is in fact a religion and is protected by the 1st Amendment. Infamous Justice Hugo Black noted, “Among religions in this country which do not teach what would generally be considered a belief in the existence of God are Buddhism, Taoism, Ethical Culture, Secular Humanism, and others.”

The same court soon went on to decide that prayer (Engel v. Vatale, 1962) and bible reading (Abington v. Schempp, 1963) and eventually the posting of the Ten Commandments in public schools (Stone v. Graham, 1980) were a violation of the same amendment. But as I’ve often argued, the Fundamentals of Humanism include Darwinism, Socialism and Moral Relativism, all of which are drilled into public school children from Head Start to high school graduation (if they graduate).

Public schools violate the 1st Amendment, not only by teaching religious beliefs contrary to those of the parents (“prohibiting the free exercise thereof”), but simply teaching religious beliefs (humanism) at all.

Supposedly, public schools are under the control of local governments within each state, but in reality, that is far from true. Although parents have the façade of electing their local school board members, most of what goes on inside each school is beyond the authority of those board members.

Policies, standards and even curriculum are essentially set by unelected teachers’ unions and enforced by state boards of education, which are backed by federal dollars via the unconstitutional Department of Education. The 10th Amendment is frequently cited as proof that the DOE and therefore today’s public schools violate the Constitution.

The amendment reads, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

Do you recall seeing education enumerated as a power to the federal government by the Constitution? Me either. And for that matter, I do not see where it is delegated to the states. It would appear that the people are the ones delegated with the power to educate their own children. But this was not a power even the Constitution had the authority to delegate.

My conclusion is supported by Thomas Jefferson in the Declaration of Independence, which spoke of unalienable (God-given) rights.” Since we are talking about our children, both the right and responsibility to educate them are ours, according to our God.

The Bible tells us the training of our children is not merely our right but our responsibility. Consider first Proverbs 22:6, the verse I use to introduce my website,www.voicefromthepews.com. Whom do you think God (via Solomon) is telling to train the child, the State? God forbid! Try Deuteronomy 11:19. The Lord (via Moses) clearly tells us to teach our children, not delegate that responsibility to the government. So why do we do it? Is it any wonder then each generation grows further and further from God?

I talk a lot more about this issue in my last two books, Legally STUPiD: Why Johnny doesn’t have to read and Prole Nation. In Legally STUPID, I point out that Big Brother knew what he was doing when he kicked God out of the public schools. Without daily Bible reading, the Lord’s Prayer and the reminding presence of the Ten Commandments on the wall, he knew most children would not receive moral training at home or through today’s seeker friendly, apostate churches.

In Prole Nation, a novel, I depict our immediate future in which the federal government has begun to exercise even greater power over education by further restricting Christian schools and home schools, with an ultimate objective of closing them. If the Lord tarries, that day is coming soon.

Let me strongly encourage you to read further about the history of public schools. Find a copy of either of my books or Dr. Shortt’s The Harsh Truth About Public Schools, Gatto’s The Underground History of American Education or Priest’s Protester Voices – The 1974 Textbook Tea Party. Learn what your kids’ teachers and the news media don’t/won’t tell you, like gender training in California or especially how public schools were Goal #10 on the Communist Manifesto.

Before closing this article, let me show you what another public school advocate had to say about IndoctriNation“Biggest @#$%&* ever made. The producers of this movie should be locked up in an insane asylum and the money used to make it should be taken back and put towards something beneficial for humanity like stem cell research or a cure for AIDS.”

This statement says so much about the opposition. Beyond the need to express himself with profanity, this fellah believes he or his government has the power to lock up in insane asylums folks who believe things contrary to the State, much like the use of the gulags in the old Soviet Union or George Orwell’s Ministry of Truth in Nineteen Eighty-Four, where folks like us were cured of our thought crimes.

His hateful attitude is a clear example of political correctness run amuck and evidence of what we can expect in the near future. As I have asked in other NWVs articles, for whom do you think our government has built all those containment camps hidden throughout the country?

Notice too that he asserts that the money used to produce IndoctriNation, all of which came from individual donors or private, Christian organizations – not tax payers, can and should be taken, presumably by his government again, and re-distributed to support liberal causes, like stem cell research, which takes the life of unborn babies, or AIDS research, a disease, which, for the most part, is preventable by simply changing one’s lifestyle.

Less than 100 years ago, folks like him only wanted to teach an alternative view of creation. A generation later, that view was the only view allowed in public schools as mandated by the federal government. Almost 40 years ago, they told us the Constitution somewhere gave women the right to kill their babies. Shortly thereafter, they had taxpayers paying for that so-called right.

John Dewey, the father of today’s public schools, once argued that reading skills were key to changing those schools. Not only what children read had to be controlled but how well they could read. The 1950’s introduced us to a new method of teaching reading, then called Look-Say, now called Whole Language. Under the old Phonics method of teaching reading, children could develop a 24,000-word vocabulary by the end of the 4th grade. Under the new method of memorizing words by sight (not sound), children now develop fewer than 1,500 words by the end of the 4th grade.

By dumbing down their vocabulary, they dumbed down a generation. Most Americans can no longer focus on what they are thinking – if they are thinking – because they cannot articulate what they are thinking, much like George Orwell’s proles. Now they are dependent on the government that made them that way.

And while our public schools were cleverly dumbing us down academically, they were indoctrinating us with moral relativism and revised history. Dumbed-down children who dared come to school with Christian values were easily taught to question what their parents believed, then doubt what their parents believed, then renounce what their parents believed in favor of what the State wants them to believe.

If you are one of the millions of Americans with that learning disability caused by a public school education, and you therefore cannot understand what I’ve written in this article or my books or other such books, please watch IndoctriNation when it’s released on DVD later this summer.

In the meanwhile, try to improve your reading skills for your own sake and for your children’s sake. You may want to start by reading your Bible. After all, is there not a cause?

What Real Patriot’s Do

June 24th, 2011 by

"It is the duty of the patriot to protect his country from his government."

-Thomas Paine

In reference to the present condition of America, no truer words have ever been written, but just what can you do to protect your country from an out of control government? Just like raising children, government officers need discipline, and when they do not respond to discipline, then harsh restrictions must be imposed on them. Sadly, most American’s knowledge of what is wrong in this country is still focused on our officer’s personal behavior, and know nothing about what is really responsible for the loss of personal freedom, loss of privacy, loss of income producing jobs, loss of appreciating retirement funds, or any of the thousands of other subjects that have brought us to the brink of National, state, local, personal, and social bankruptcy. As a Nation of people once admired by the bulk of the world, we have slid down to the bottom of the respect scale, and incredibly few people can tell you why.

Those of us who have been researching the many subjects that have affected America’s downfall had no idea when we started that this would turn into a full blown obsessive profession, and if we had had any idea what we were in for we would have never started. An eighty-hour workweek would be a luxury for many of us. We do not expect many people will have the financial or personal interest level to go that far, and from experience, we know better that to expect much from the average working parents, due to their already hectic life style. What we do expect from you is some common sense and awareness of the imminent disaster if millions of American’s do not do some real homework and become knowledgeable enough to converse intelligently on some of the core problems.

Without a hundred million people focused on these core issues, we are going to experience a total loss of everything we hold dear. Out of the thousands of research sites on the net none that I know of are capable of presenting a full curriculum of disaster issue’s. The problems America faces are way to numerous for any small organization to tackle. I.B.M and the Rand Corporation would not be able to do that in anything less that a twenty-year prep time. Imagine what you would think if I said, you need to read a minimum of six hours a day for over a year to become marginally astute in the affairs of our country.

Education is most assuredly the number one problem in recovering control of our future. People have spent their entire life living in a “trust the media” culture, and getting people to change their core beliefs is not going to happen over-night. Problem is, we don’t have a year to just read anyway. Some of the most astute researchers are calling for a complete collapse of America in mid 2012, and that leaves no prep time for an education project of this size. Imagine you are in an airplane and suddenly it rolls over and begins spinning out of control, and that total lack of warning is where America is at this time.

CAN A FREE AMERICA BE SAVED?

Those of you who believe that the next election will turn things around in America are living in a dream world, because projects put in place decades ago are already dismantling our country. When a large business goes belly up, one of the first things that happens’ is the sell off of assets. Did you know that our federal, state, and local governments are selling America’s infrastructure to foreign Corporations and Communist China? Do you know that you Do Not own your house ? Do you know that preparations are in place to move hundreds of thousands of people into detainment centers, and detainment means under guard and not permitted to leave? Think Katrina on a National scale. All for your own safety of course. Did you know that plans are in place to have a National false flag disaster that will completely demoralize the uninformed population of America, and access to survival necessities will be impossible for you to buy? Regardless of your present financial security, you will not be able to continue living as you have planned, unless you get really educated, which is the only thing possible to piss you off enough to believe this warning. So, NO, America as you understand her, cannot be saved! It’s too late and once you are informed you would not want her to be saved. While you were not paying attention, she turned into a slut.

The time has come for all good men to come to the aid of their country.

Once a spouse has violated your mind and soul, and destroyed the bond you swore too, the only thing left is to start over, and that’s where we’re at right now. Soon you will see your government taking everything you thought you owned away from you, and casting you out in the street where human scum will attack you without mercy. Your only present option is to get prepared!

You do not have a choice!

It’s either sink, or swim folks, and your first stroke is getting informed of what has been going on behind your back for your entire life. Your so-called loving spouse has been busy for years planning your demise while you blissfully ignored all the signs. At this point, I’m smiling at your self righteous rage, and praying that you will have the common sense to investigate my conclusions. You can do that at Http://anationbeguiled.com

[A Nation Beguiled] publishes a number of highly controversial subjects, which often presents counterintuitive thinking about complex issues that have long feedback cycles. We are sometimes critical of the conventional thinking of organizations that continue to propagate obsolete misinformation, despite well-documented new research. In this respect, we are proud when we are called “confrontational.”

Our goal is to inform intelligent people about our own research and our multiple-source information integration. We seek to educate open-minded individuals about alternative points of view based on the best rapidly evolving evidence. We make no attempt to badger any particular individual, and offer interesting information that you can discuss with your financial planners, friends and family.

We encourage you to develop your own critical thinking skills, in the pursuit of freedom from tyrannical governance. Be open minded, objective, unbiased, impartial, and always ready to gather new evidence.

Use a more broad-based perspective to research about important topics. Be prepared to listen to conflicting opinions and viewpoints if you want to understand the good and valid arguments on all sides of a controversial issue.

Draw conclusions on the basis of the best available evidence! This important skill is more difficult to master than most people realize. It requires insight and knowledge into: (a) the subject matter, and (b) the process of critical thinking. Only by doing these things can we evaluate diverse sources of input and determine what constitutes the best evidence, and estimate to what eventual outcome that evidence leads.

Even critical thinking experts can learn from the best available modern and historical evidence to significantly improve their comprehension of America’s subjugation to diverse socio-political and economic problems. Sometimes new information flies in the face of conventional wisdom that has long been accepted as “truth” for many decades by the mediocre masses.

Lifelong learning is an ever-expanding universe of endless possibilities. As we make this journey of gathering knowledge to acquire wisdom, we must be aware of and alert to those who would weaken us by selling us the idea we deserve happiness and prosperity without the responsibility of working for, and protecting it.Freedom is not free!

We do not ask for, or accept compensation of any kind, but instead we worn you that your continued ignorance of the future plans of the International Bankers will cost you everything you own or hold dear.

In fact they already own you personally, you are an economic slave to them and do not believe it yet. They of course encourage your ignorance because it is more profitable for you to willingly work for them.

Occasionally this letter will fall into the hands of people who consider themselves Constitutional mavens, and with self-righteous rage they will construct vicious replies and accuse me of being a traitor. To them I say; I have personally been down the road of ignorance of reality, and willingness to die for America, but age and a strong sense of being a creature of God, and not a subject of man, plus having an observant nature that led to years of research has made a new creature out of the old one, and I am willing to take on any and every person who will travel the path I have and do the work!

Life is a lot different when you can see your own errors, and admit your past ignorance, and self-forgiveness only comes from learning the truth. Men killing men from trusting the government they live under is the most ignorant thing a person can do. If I am charged with the duty to kill someone, then show me the truth first, or I will tell you to go piss up a rope.

It’s kind of like this folks, the knowledge I have acquired from years of research has restored my self respect. Now, I know I have done all that I was capable of to assist the people and warn them of the tyranny ahead, and now the rest is up to you if you want to live free from tyrannical global bankers. Learn all you can, as fast as you can, because there will be hell on earth.

Intelligent replies respected and answered.
