Only the Sheeple Are Sane

This post is about an issue that is by now a bit dated (though the topic as such certainly isn’t), but we have only just become aware of it and it seemed to us worth rescuing it from the memory hole. In late 2013, the then newest issue of the American Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM for short) defined a new mental illness, the so-called“oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD.

As TheMindUnleashed.org informs us, the definition of this new mental illness essentially amounts to declaring any non-conformity and questioning of authority as a form of insanity. According to the manual, ODD is defined as:

[…] an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” symptoms include questioning authority, negativity, defiance, argumentativeness, and being easily annoyed.

In short, as Natural News put it: According to US psychiatrists, only the sheeple are sane.

Every time a new issue of the DSM appears, the number of mental disorders grows – and this growth is exponential. A century ago there were essentially 7 disorders, 80 years ago there were 59, 50 years ago there were 130, and by 2010 there were 374 (77 of which were “found” in just seven years). A prominent critic of this over-diagnosing (and the associated over-medication trend) is psychologist Dr. Paula Caplan. Here is an interview with her:

Allen Gregg in conversation with psychologist Dr. Paula Caplan

As MindUnleashed notes:

“Are we becoming sicker? Is it getting harder to be mentally healthy? Authors of the DSM-IV say that it’s because they’re better able to identify these illnesses today. Critics charge that it’s because they have too much time on their hands.

New mental illnesses identified by the DSM-IV include arrogance, narcissism, above-average creativity, cynicism, and antisocial behavior. In the past, these were called “personality traits,” but now they’re diseases. And there are treatments available.”

Edward Abbey on what happens when no-one ever stirs things up

 There is an obvious danger involved with such loose definitions such as the one employed in identifying the alleged illness of “ODD”. A chilling example was provided by the Soviet Union in the 1960s and 1970s. In a 1959 speech, Nikita Khrushchev made the following remark:

“Can there be diseases, nervous diseases among certain people in the communist society? Evidently there can be. If that is so, then there also will be offenses which are characteristic of people with abnormal minds. To those who might start calling for opposition to communism on this ‘basis,’ we say that now, too, there are people who fight against communism, but clearly the mental state of such people is not normal.”

Obviously, questioning the best socio-economic system ever devised had to be a sign of insanity, and after Khrushchev’s speech Soviet psychiatrists immediately went to work to discover and institutionalize all those mentally ill “communism deniers”.

The road to what followed had already been paved in 1951, when in a joint session of the USSR Academy of Medical Sciences and the Board of the All-Union Neurological and Psychiatric Association, several leading neurologists and psychiatrists were accused of pursuing an “anti-Marxist and reactionary” deviation from the teachings of Pavlov. The session took place on Stalin’s behest so as to “free Soviet psychiatry of Western influences”.

The psychiatrist who wrote the policy report associated with this purge was Andrei Snezhnevsky, who invented (err, “discovered”) a new mental illness, which he termed “sluggish schizophrenia”. After Khrushchev’s 1959 speech, the term was widely adopted and the illness was diagnosed throughout the Eastern Bloc. The symptoms of the alleged “illness” were such that even the slightest change in behavior patterns could henceforth be interpreted as a sign of mental derangement. Political dissent was for instance considered to by a symptom of “sluggish schizophrenia with delusions of reform”.

Snezhnevsky personally signed a decision declaring several prominent dissidents legally insane – among them also neurophysiologist Vladimir Bukovsky, who was the first to expose and criticize the abuse of psychiatry in the Soviet Union and spent altogether 12 years in prisons, forced labor camps and locked up in psychiatric hospitals for his efforts.

Snezhnevsky’s theories became the only ones acceptable in Soviet psychiatry, and it was obviously held to be quite dangerous to oppose them. Ironically, in 1970, one year before Vladimir Bukovsky managed to smuggle out 150 pages that documented the silencing of political dissenters with the aid of psychiatry in the Soviet Union, the American Psychiatric Association named Snezhnevsky a “distinguished fellow” for his “outstanding contribution to psychiatry and related sciences” at its annual meeting in San Francisco.

 Money and the Invention of new Categories of Disease

There is a basic problem with psychiatry and psychology: they are largely thymological, as opposed to natural sciences. If you break your arm and visit 10 different medical doctors, you will get the same diagnosis from every single one of them – they will all tell you that your arm is broken. A standardized treatment exists for dealing with a broken arm.

Make a list of psychological problems you are experiencing and visit ten different psychiatrists, and chances are very good that you will receive 10 different diagnoses coupled with 10 different proposals for treatment (including prescriptions for very powerful psychotropic drugs). Genuine severe mental disorders may be connected with chemical imbalances in the brain to some extent (no conclusive proof for this actually exists), but by and large there is little that can be objectively “measured”. The psychologist or psychiatrist must largely rely on the same ability that also characterizes the work of the historian – i.e., what Mises called “understanding”. They can only judge behavior.

So why have so many former “personality traits” been transformed into symptoms of mental illness? One major reason is money. Here are a few data points that shed light on the monetary side of the psychiatry business; the data are by now slightly dated, but they suffice to get the point across. As of 2010:

Global sales of anti-depressants, stimulants, anti-anxiety and anti-psychotic drugs had reached more than $76 billion per year.

Globally, 54 million people were taking anti-depressants that are known to cause addiction, and often violent and homicidal behavior.

In the US, 20% of all women were taking mental health medication in 2010. Essentially every fourth female is prozac’d into quietude.

20 million children worldwide had been diagnosed with mental disorders and were prescribed stimulants and/or powerful anti-depressants.

In 2002, more than 100 million prescriptions were written for anti-depressants alone (cost: $19.5 billion nominal)

In France, one in seven prescriptions is for a psychotropic drug and more than 50% of the employed were taking such drugs (as of 2010, 1.8 million people).

Between 1986 and 2004, combined spending on anti-psychotic drugs and anti-depressants jumped from $500 million to $20 billion.

In the US, the mental health budget, adjusted for inflation, has soared from $33 billion in 1994 to $ 80 billion in 2010 (similar increases have occurred elsewhere).

(data via Stefan Molyneux)

Stefan Molyneux whom we got the above data from also reports that according to the US National Institute of Mental Health (in 2010) “26% of Americans suffer from mental illness” and “nearly 58 million Americans will suffer from an episode of mental illness in any given year”. There you have it – we’re literally surrounded by lunatics. As Molyneux rightly points out: if there is a disease for which we have effective cures, then application of this cure should reduce the prevalence of the disease.

For instance, a number of infectious diseases have been nearly, or completely exterminated by effective vaccines. We should therefore expect that with the arrival of psychiatric medications that allegedly “correct chemical imbalances in the brain”, there should be a decline in the number of mentally ill people. The first such medications were introduced in the mid 1950s. So what happened? In 1955, there were 355,000 adults confined to mental hospitals all over the US on account of being diagnosed as mentally ill by psychiatrists. After 50 years of medical treatment with anti-psychotic drugs, that number has risen to more than 4 million patients (as of 2007). Some success!

While the prescription of psychiatric medications to children soared from the mid 1980s to today, so did the number of youth receiving disability payments from the government for mental disability. It rose from 16,200 in 1986 to 561,569 in 2007 (a 35 fold increase). It appears that all those meds prescribed to “ODD” and “ADHD” children have had the exact opposite effect from that advertised.

 1-23-2015 11-59-17 AM

Again, there exists no convincing proof as of yet for any chemical, biological or genetic causes of mental illness. The categorizations found in the DSM are arrived at by “peer consensus”, not by any objective measurements. And yet, drugs that alter chemical balances in the brain are prescribed as treatment. The greater the number of new diseases manufactured by said consensus, the more treatments can be prescribed. As Dr. Thomas Dorman, internist and member of the Royal College of Physicians of the UK, and Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Canada, put it:

“In short, the whole business of creating psychiatric categories of ‘disease,’ formalizing them with consensus, and subsequently ascribing diagnostic codes to them, which in turn leads to their use for insurance billing, is nothing but an extended racket furnishing psychiatry a pseudo-scientific aura. The perpetrators are, of course, feeding at the public trough.”

It is not too difficult to see the enormous monetary incentives that are driving this business of declaring as many people as possible to be mentally ill. There no longer is such a thing as a harmless “eccentric”. Any deviation from the norms laid out by the psychiatric profession mean one is in need of treatment. Only the sheeple are sane.

Stefan Molyneux’s podcast on mental illness from which we have taken most of the statistics presented above can be seen here:

 Stefan Molyneux on mental illness.

 Freethinkers Medicated Into Silence by Good Serfs

However, there may be another reason why anti-authoritarianism specifically has made it onto the list of behaviors held to be symptomatic of mental illness. Psychologist Dr. Bruce Levine has laid the problem out in an article entitled “Why Anti-Authoritarians are Diagnosed as Mentally Ill”. A few pertinent excerpts follow below. First Dr. Levine explains why there seem so few anti-authoritarians in the US. The reason in his opinion is that many have been medicated into silence:

“Anti-authoritarians question whether an authority is a legitimate one before taking that authority seriously. Evaluating the legitimacy of authorities includes assessing whether or not authorities actually know what they are talking about, are honest, and care about those people who are respecting their authority. And when anti-authoritarians assess an authority to be illegitimate, they challenge and resist that authority—sometimes aggressively and sometimes passive-aggressively, sometimes wisely and sometimes not.

Some activists lament how few anti-authoritarians there appear to be in the United States. One reason could be that many natural anti-authoritarians are now psycho-pathologized and medicated before they achieve political consciousness of society’s most oppressive authorities.”

(emphasis added)

But why does this happen, apart from the monetary incentives discussed above? Why are psychiatrists so eager to medicate anti-authoritarians into a stupor? In Dr. Levine’s opinion, the reason is that the career of most psychiatrists involves an extraordinary degree of compliance with authorities, to the point where they are not even aware anymore of how obedient they have become. When confronted with patients who aren’t exhibiting a similar degree of obedient behavior, they immediately suspect that there is something to diagnose and treat:

“The selection and socialization of mental health professionals tends to breed out many anti-authoritarians. Having steered the higher-education terrain for a decade of my life, I know that degrees and credentials are primarily badges of compliance. Those with extended schooling have lived for many years in a world where one routinely conforms to the demands of authorities. Thus for many MDs and PhDs, people different from them who reject this attentional and behavioral compliance appear to be from another world—a diagnosable one.

I have found that most psychologists, psychiatrists, and othermental health professionals are not only extraordinarily compliant with authorities but also unaware of the magnitude of their obedience. And it also has become clear to me that the anti-authoritarianism of their patients creates enormous anxiety for these professionals, and their anxiety fuels diagnoses and treatments.  (emphasis added)

It is probably a good bet that a Haldol-addled Einstein wouldn’t have excelled at much. Well, he even looked crazy: theoretical physicist and reputed anti-authoritarian Albert Einstein, who invented a few unimportant little formulas like E=mc2. Rumor has it he also invented gravity, which we have been struggling against ever since.

As Dr. Levine points out, once they are diagnosed as mentally ill, anti-authoritarians are especially likely to become victims of a vicious cycle:

“Many anti-authoritarians who earlier in their lives were diagnosed with mental illness tell me that once they were labeled with a psychiatric diagnosis, they got caught in a dilemma.

Authoritarians, by definition, demand unquestioning obedienceand so any resistance to their diagnosis and treatment created enormous anxiety for authoritarian mental health professionalsand professionals, feeling out of control, labeled them “noncompliant with treatment,” increased the severity of their diagnosis, and jacked up their medications.”

(emphasis added)

Dr. Levine then concludes that the direction in which the system has evolved is indeed reminiscent of a “Sovietization”; just as the ruling classes once employed an authoritarian religious establishment to enforce compliance with the status quo, they can nowadays rely on psychiatry to do the job:

“What better way to maintain the status quo than to view inattention, anger, anxiety, and depression as biochemical problems of those who are mentally ill rather than normal reactions to an increasingly authoritarian society.

So authoritarians financially marginalize those who buck the system, they criminalize anti-authoritarianism, they psychopathologize anti-authoritarians, and they market drugs for their “cure.”

(emphasis added)

Evidently the system provides ample scope for both intentional and unintentional abuse.

Conclusion:

In order to prevent misunderstandings, we should point out that we don’t want to assert here that there exists no such thing as mental illness, or that psychiatry is completely useless in diagnosing it or providing effective treatment. The same holds for psychotropic medication: there certainly exist medications that can be helpful in alleviating symptoms of severe mental conditions and allow people to lead fairly normal lives that would otherwise be out of reach for them (i.e., we don’t fully agree with Stefan Molyneux’s conclusions; this is simply based on the fact that we personally know of two cases in which appropriate medication helped people exhibiting severe symptoms associated with schizophrenia).

However, it is important to realize that the sciences dealing with the human mind are thymological in nature and cannot make claims based on objectively measurable physical quantities. And yet, the field has turned into a “growth industry” in every respect; the number of behaviors regarded as “abnormal”, as well as the number of medications prescribed for treating such behaviors has grown exponentially. This is a dangerous development and the fact that almost every quirky personality trait is suddenly deemed a sign of disease is certainly giving one pause (it is dangerous in several respects: consider for instance the great number of mass murderers who were prescribed psychotropic drugs. Correlation is not always causation of course, but still…)

The psychopathologizing of anti-authoritarian behavior is yet another step on what looks like an increasingly slippery slope and it strikes us as especially harmful. As Dr. Levine inter alia points out: “It has been my experience that many anti-authoritarians labeled with psychiatric diagnoses usually don’t reject all authorities, simply those they’ve assessed to be illegitimate ones.”

In other words, the term “anti-authoritarian” does not necessarily stand for a blanket rejection of all authorities, but rather a healthy questioning of the legitimacy of existing authorities. This seems all the more necessary today, when governments in the name of providing all-encompassing security (a task at which they are predictably failing) are seeing fit to let individual liberty die a death of a thousand cuts.

AMERICAN MATRIX HOW WE LOST OUR CONSTITUTION PART 2

COLORABLE MONEY, COLORABLE LAW, COLORABLE LIBERTY

Before providing you with the following information, I must state that I am not an attorney and have not studied the law. I’m a retired banker who has done a lot of research on this subject.

What we learned in Part I is that federal, state, county and city governments and most of the departments and divisions that are part of them are incorporated. We learned that corporations function under Articles of Incorporation, not a Constitution and that’s how we lost our constitutional rights and courts that support them.

We learned that corporations are governed by business laws having to do with Maritime Law (also called Law of the Seas or Admiralty Law both of which are historically very old) and the Uniform Commercial Code. We learned that Constitutional Law is based on Common Law (which is based on substance and the will of the people — the Will of God, too, many people say). For example, under Common Law we are provided the alternative of not testifying against ourselves; that is not part of Maritime Law.

To understand the damage that has been done to our nation, we need to define the word “colorable” – its meaning, its impact on our currency, our courts, and our constitutional liberties and the limits the Constitution places on government. It is from the meaning of the word “colorable” that the virus of death infecting our nation breeds and keeps breeding… like Ebola, it dissolves every major life-giving organ in its path until death ensues.

COLORABLE MONEY – COLORABLE COURTS

To be “colorable,” is for something to appear to be what it is not. It looks real, you are told by your government that it is real and, in the example of currency, it is used or behaves as if it’s real, but it is not. Take what you are told is a dollar bill from your billfold. It looks like a dollar bill. You can spend it like a dollar bill. But it is not a dollar bill. It is a Federal Reserve Note. It says so, right on the face of it – at the top, above George Washington’s picture.

In the world of banking, what is a note? Answer: It is a loan. It is credit. According to the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, fiat money has no value in and of itself, but it can be exchanged… like Monopoly money. A direct quote from the Minneapolis Fed: …(fiat currency can be exchanged) “for goods and services… because (the people) are confident it will be honored when they buy goods and services.”

Money and currency are not the same. We used to have money in America but when the dollar was no longer backed by gold or silver our “money” became a fiat currency. These things called a “Federal Reserve Note” became colorable currency, something that behaved like money because people could use it to buy groceries, cars, electronics, etc., and also pay for services like health care and life insurance. But it was not money. It was colorable… it just serves as a paper currency. Money is something of substance – like gold or silver. For Common Law to exist, money of substance must exist.

If a (colorable) Federal Reserve Note becomes part of a contract, the contract also becomes colorable. Colorable contracts, in turn, must be adjudicated under a “colorable” jurisdiction (system of justice – our courts). So when the colorable currency called Federal Reserve Notes was created, the government had to create a jurisdiction (court system) to cover colorable contracts. The incorporated governments called this new form of jurisdiction Statutory Law because though it was based on the Uniform Commercial Code which is based on Admiralty Law, “Statutory” is neither. Thus, Statutory Jurisdiction is colorable.

It sounds complicated, but if you think about it for a few minutes, it is really quite simple. Public Law was used in Common Law courts; Public Policy is used in Statutory courts… and that’s what gave bureaucrats control of our courtrooms. That’s what gave them the ability to prosecute members of the public because a regulation passed by a government agency rather than a law passed by Congress or your State Legislature, was violated.

So our courts have changed… how many times in the past years have you heard the term “The Petitioner does not have Standing to file this case… dismissed!” We have been unable to file cases against our government even when clear abuses of power exist. How many juries have been given rules they are told they must follow in determining a verdict, leaving them no choice other than “guilty” or “not guilty” regardless of what the evidence indicates? How many judges have withheld evidence from a jury? It has brought topics like “Nullification” to the forefront of the politically active. Nullification deals with a jury’s right to dismiss from its decision of guilt or innocence the judge’s directions as to what the jury may or may not consider in reaching its decision. Juries are empowered to nullify the judge’s directions if they feel it is justified.

All of this and more has been caused by the change from Common to a colorable form of Maritime Law called Statutory Law… a form of law required when our various governments incorporated — which, in turn, was required when the Federal Reserve System presented us with a “colorable currency.”

What have we Americans been taught by our government-subsidized education about the cause of our Revolutionary War? Mostly we were told about the Boston Tea Party, the Midnight Ride of Paul Revere, and other nice stories.

Many people say the Revolution began because of the Crown’s Declaratory Act which taxed tea, taxed stamps, forced colonists to quarter in their homes members of the English military, etc. No. It began because of the Rothschilds and their central bank system which, in today’s world, has driven us to the brink of another world war.

It’s true that all those things were great irritants, but the real core problem involved central banking – the Bank of England. The colonists were forced by England’s King to use a paper currency issued by the Bank of England which demanded we use it – and we were to cede our colonial banking and monetary systems and pay interest to the Bank of England for using their paper money.

It sounds eerily like the way the Federal Reserve System in America works today, doesn’t it? It is, in fact, quite similar. So we must start with the assumption that what made our ancestors go to war in the 1700s is quite acceptable to Americans today because we have embraced what they were willing to die to prevent: Central banks and a fiat currency.

The Rothschilds were around when America was a colony of Great Britain and the fact that we were founded on the basis of Common Law troubled them. Why? Common Law is based on substance and rejects “colorable money” and “colorable courts.” Article 1 Section 8 of our Constitution describes for you what “substance” relative to Common Law means: “Gold and silver,” not a meaningless fiat currency that has nothing backing it. That is a currency with no substance and violates Common Law.

Prior to the forming of the Federal Reserve System, America’s Constitutional Republic required the nation to pay its debts in gold or silver and Rothschild banks did not loan gold or silver. Thus they did not like our newly-formed government which rejected a fiat currency with nothing backing it (what we have today). As described above, the Rothschilds allowed the King of England to borrow paper money from them and got repaid in gold and silver.

Our Constitution declared gold and silver as the official currency of the United States of America and that’s why the Rothschilds financed the War of 1812. They wanted America as part of the United Kingdom so they could expand into the New World their Bank of England scam. They of course lost the War of 1812 and began seeking other ways to further their “we’ll loan you paper and you pay us back in gold and silver” scheme and began working on what we now have as a central banking system, the Federal Reserve, founded on December 23, 1913, 100 years after the War of 1812. And how legitimate is the Federal Reserve Act of 1913? Not very. Read the history.

Our ancestors in North America began to revolt against the Brits but we had Common Law in the Colonies at the time. When the King’s tax collectors made their rounds, however, they imposed Admiralty Law on the people. It enabled them to arrest and quickly try people, denying to what were mostly Englishmen and women the common rights due them as citizens of the Crown. That is what caused the Revolutionary War.

Perhaps the most interesting part of our history is that almost exactly the same thing has happened to us once again. What’s the old saying about what happens if we don’t learn from history? By incorporating federal, state, and county governments (because of the Federal Reserve’s colorable currency), the U.S. Government made it possible to remove the Common Law supported by our U.S. Constitution and implement a prostituted form of Maritime (or Admiralty) Law called Statutory Law. Our ancestors refused to tolerate it and it will be interesting to see if today’s society which seems more motivated by security and comfort than by right and wrong and liberty will accept the Law of the Seas.

To make sure we’re all on the same page, let’s start with some definitions and let them guide you to an understanding of how we got in our current mess. Only if we understand the history behind these massive problems will we be able to solve them.

To explain how the loss of Common Law robbed us of our independence and our Republic and how incorporating federal, state, and county governments made it possible, we need some definitions. You’re about to get a graduate school crash course in business and finance (and a little law):

JURISDICTION: 1. The right of a court to hear a particular case, based on the scope of its authority over the type of case and the parties to the case. 2. Authority or control. 3. The extent of authority or control. 4. The territorial range of authority or control.

While researching the jurisdiction of our courts, I came upon an article that was so well done, so easy for a non-lawyer to understand, I decided to reprint portions of it here. One of the difficult things about writing both Parts I and II of this article is stating things in a way that can be understood by non-bankers and non-lawyers. Since I’m not a lawyer, I particularly appreciated this article and recommend that you read it in its entirety HERE. I am not publishing the entire article below, just those parts that apply to this topic.

The article is a condensed story about a man named Howard Freeman and is based on a seminar Freeman gave in 1990. The article is written in ham and eggs English and is not filled with legal terminology that forces you to look every-other-word up in a legal dictionary. The following definition about Common Law, Equity Law, Admiralty/Maritime Law, Courts of Contract, Colorable Money and Colorable Courts, and the Uniform Commercial Code is taken from that seminar and the article written about it.

The Constitution of the United States mentions three areas of jurisdiction in which the courts may operate:

COMMON LAW

Common Law is based on God’s law. Anytime someone is charged under the Common Law, there must be a damaged party. You are free under the Common Law to do anything you please, as long as you do not infringe on the life, liberty, or property of someone else. You have a right to make a fool of yourself provided you do not infringe on the life, liberty, or property of someone else. The Common Law does not allow for any government action which prevents a man from making a fool of himself. For instance, when you cross over the state lines in most states, you will see a sign which says, ” BUCKLE YOUR SEAT BELTS – IT’S THE LAW. ” This cannot be Common Law, because who would you injure if you did not buckle up? Nobody. This would be compelled performance. But Common Law cannot compel performance. Any violation of Common Law is a CRIMINAL ACT, and is punishable.

EQUITY LAW

Equity Law is law which compels performance. It compels you to perform to the exact letter of any contract that you are under. So, if you have compelled performance, there must be a contract somewhere, and you are being compelled to perform under the obligation of the contract. Now this can only be a civil action – not criminal. In Equity Jurisdiction, you cannot be tried criminally, but you can be compelled to perform to the letter of a contract. If you then refuse to perform as directed by the court, you can be charged with contempt of court, which is a criminal action. Are our seatbelt laws Equity Laws? No, they are not, because you cannot be penalized or punished for not keeping to the letter of a contract. (BARNEWALL NOTE: You may have signed an insurance contract agreeing to always wear your seat belts or otherwise obey all traffic laws and, of course, your state requires automobile insurance coverage.)

ADMIRALTY/MARITIME LAW

This is civil jurisdiction of Compelled Performance which also has Criminal Penalties for not adhering to the letter of the contract, but this only applies to International Contracts. Now we can see what jurisdiction the seatbelt laws (all traffic codes, etc) are under. Whenever there is a penalty for failure to perform (such as willful failure to file), that is Admiralty/Maritime Law and there must be a valid international contract in force.

However, the courts don’t want to admit that they are operating under Admiralty/Maritime Jurisdictions, so they took the international law or Law Merchant and adopted it into our codes. That is what the Supreme Court decided in the Erie Railroad case (Erie Railroad v. Tompkins, Supreme Court, 1938) – that the decisions will be based on commercial law or business law and that it will have criminal penalties associated with it. Since they were instructed not to call it Admiralty Jurisdiction, they call it Statutory Jurisdiction.

COURTS OF CONTRACT

You must ask how we got into this situation where we can be charged with failure to wear seatbelts and be fined for it. Isn’t the judge sworn to up hold the Constitution? Yes, he is. But you must understand the Constitution, in Article I, § 10, gives us the unlimited right to contract, as long as we do not infringe on the life, liberty or property of someone else. Contracts are enforceable, and the Constitution gives two jurisdictions where contracts can be enforced – Equity or Admiralty. But we find them being in Statutory Jurisdiction. This is the embarrassing part for the courts, but we can use this to box the judges into a corner in their own courts.

CONTRACTS MUST BE VOLUNTARY

Under the Common Law, every contract must be entered into knowingly, voluntarily, and intentionally by both parties or it is void and unenforceable. This is characteristic: It must be based on substance. For example, contracts used to read, “For one dollar and other valuable considerations, I will paint your house,” etc. That was a valid contract – the dollar was a genuine, silver dollar. Now, suppose you wrote a contract that said, “For one Federal Reserve Note and other considerations, I will paint your house….” And suppose, for example, I painted your house the wrong color. Could you go into a Common Law court and get justice? No, you could not. You see, a Federal Reserve Note is a “colorable” dollar, as it has no substance, and in a Common Law Jurisdiction, that contract would be unenforceable.

COLORABLE MONEY – COLORABLE COURTS

Colorable: That which exists in appearance only, and not in reality; not what it purports to be, hence counterfeit, feigned have the appearance of truth. Black’s Law Dictionary, Sixth Edition.

It is “colorable” Admiralty Jurisdiction the judges are enforcing because we are using “colorable money.” Colorable Admiralty is now known as Statutory Jurisdiction. Let’s see how we got under this Statutory Jurisdiction.

UNIFORM COMMERCIAL CODE

The government set up a “colorable” law system to fit the “colorable” currency. It used to be called the Law Merchant or the Law of Redeemable Instruments, because it dealt with paper which was redeemable in something of substance. But, once Federal Reserve Notes had become unredeemable, there had to be a system of law which was completely “colorable” from start to finish. This system of law was codified as the Uniform Commercial Code, and has been adopted in every state. This is “colorable” law, and it is used in all the courts.

(End of text from Howard Freeman’s seminar.)

Do you see how the Federal Reserve Notes were the basic cause of the problems we now see in our courts, our financial system, our Republic, our Independence as a people? They created a fiat currency backed by nothing. Keep in mind, the word “Note” means “Loan.” It is “colorable currency.”

The Common Law, as embodied in the US Constitution, for the protection and security of persons and property, is Substantive Common Law – [substantive right: a right {as of life, liberty, property, or reputation} held to exist for its own sake and to constitute part of the normal legal order of society] – the intention of the Founding Fathers being the assurance of access to this law by the people.

The most important thing we the people can work to achieve is Constitutional Counties. This system was imposed on us from the top down and must be unwound from the bottom up.

As I said in Part I of this article, corporations can be dissolved – and we need to do that. It’s not difficult to achieve… get enough signatures on a petition to get the initiative on your county ballot and vote the corporations out of existence.

It is, however, more difficult than it sounds. It requires extensive planning because you must remember how we got from a Constitutional Republic to Crony Capitalism. Here’s what I think happened.

The Federal Reserve came into being in 1913. Our money was turned into a fiat currency when President Nixon took us off of the gold standard. The U.S. Government was based on Common Law which made colorable money (money lacking substance – Common Law is based on substance) and that made it impossible for it to continue issuing Federal Reserve Notes. So the federal government incorporated itself which made it possible for them to continue with the issuance of Federal Reserve Notes. It became clear that the states could not accept colorable money from an incorporated federal government unless they, too, were incorporated – and the same thing happened to our counties. To gain access to a colorable currency, an entire system had to be created. How much simpler our lives would be if the Treasury Department had taken over America’s monetary system rather than build this octopus so the Federal Reserve System could be maintained! This attests to the power of the Rothschild central banking system. We might want to keep in mind that one of the primary problems in the Middle East is that Islam does not allow loan usury (interest) and not all of the nations in the Middle East have central banks. Libya didn’t have one – until Muammar Gaddafi was removed from office and killed. Libya now has a central bank. (The Stylebook at the Washington Post spells it “Gaddafi.” The Stylebook at the Associated Press spells it “Gadhafi.”)

Though it is not difficult to dissolve the corporations if it is the will of the people to regain their constitutional rights, a great deal of thought must go into how a county that dissolves its corporations will survive without federal and state dollars. Some of the questions that arise are:

  1. If Common Law is returned to our court system and our governing bodies, it requires a currency that has substance and contracts based on that substance. Fiat currency – Federal Reserve Notes – has no substance. How can those people being paid by the federal, state, or county governments get paid in a currency of substance? How about people receiving Social Security and Medicare benefits? How about veterans receiving retirement and VA benefits? They are being paid in Federal Reserve Notes (as we all are) which, since they are not redeemable in gold or silver, are deemed as having no substance and contracts with no substance are rejected by Common Law. This part of problem resolution is complex – but with good planning it can be done.
  2. Can fiat currency be used at all in a Constitutional County?
    3. Is there a way to reject the colorable Statutory Laws created by federal and state governments and build a bridge between Common Law and the Uniform Commercial Code, Admiralty/Maritime Law, Equity Law, etc.?

There are many other questions, but to ask and answer them requires a book, not an article. The purpose of this two-part article has been to explain to you what I believe happened and what I believe the solution to be. It will not be easy. Nor will it be free.

Liberty is never free. How much you value it will determine the price you are willing to pay to regain it.

[The book: The Coming Battle, published in 1899, documents how the politicians of that period didn’t want the debt to be paid off. They wanted the debt to be rolled over from generation to generation. It continues to this day. It’s a must read.]

The Missing 13th Amendment

January 8th, 2015 by

http://anticorruptionsociety.com/2015/01/07/the-missing-13th-amendment/#more-9579

THE ORIGINAL CONSTITUTION BARRED THE BAR’S

‘ESQUIRES’ FROM HOLDING PUBLIC OFFICE!

By Judge Dale, retired 

From the ACS Editor: Judge Dale also explains how the momentous Supreme Court decision, Bond v. US (2000), was intentionally buried to prevent the people from finding out about the faux USA corporate government that has been unlawfully ‘slid’ into place.

1-8-2015 10-22-19 AM

On or about March 20, 2013, the New Hampshire Legislature passed HB 638, recognizing Article XIII, known by few as: “The Missing 13TH Amendment,” missing from the organic Constitution of the United States of America and the legislative analysis that was offered, described a trite but secret history of this mystical amendment, which I have encapsulated as follows:

RE: During the American Civil War, the country was under Martial Law by President Lincoln and after the War, Lincoln’s policies were to be abated and everything was supposed to return to normal but it didn’t happen quite that way. Congress passed the Organic Act of 1871, which created a government corporation within the District of Columbia, called: UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. This new government corporation replaced the Municipal Charter for the District of Columbia, a move that egregiously led to the fraudulent rewrite and adoption of what appeared to be the organic American Constitution. This erroneous rewrite is described as a corporate “mission statement” with the original 13TH Amendment “omitted” and it was this Constitutional rewrite that was inadvertently published for all to see.

Members of royalty, PhD’s, lawyers, squires and bankers, “Titles of Nobility,” have left an historic wake of deceit, destruction and corruption behind them on this planet and I would like to believe that it was the majority intent of the Founding Fathers and the first federal convention, to shield America from those proven elements of destruction and corruption. In so doing they proposed and ratified several amendments, one being Article XIII or the 13th Amendment, specifically designed to bar candidates who held such “Titles of Nobility,” from ever holding a seat in government! Each year since 1871, Lincoln’s Martial Law has been renewed by Congress and currently, all state and federal governments are dominated by legislators with, “Titles of Nobility.” What was once regarded as a service to country is now a political career.

Quote: “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens at all, you can bet it was planned that way.” Franklin D. Roosevelt

The described “omission” of Article XIII [the missing 13th Amendment] and the “mission statement” the fraudulent copy of the organic constitution initiates the following [ten] questions, which I will attempt to answer as succinctly as I can.

QUESTION 1: How do you “omit” a Constitutional Article when they are all sequentially numbered?

ANSWER 1: Obviously this is a lawyer’s response by the New Hampshire Legislature because you cannot simply “omit” a Constitutional Amendment, they are sequentially numbered! The original Article XIII was intentionally and methodically removed from existence, which took a number of years to complete and was NOT simply “omitted.” It required a conspiracy; a federal rewrite; the removal of all former texts and references to the original Article XIII and the domination of all the various state government legislatures by candidates holding, “Titles of Nobility,” who would be willing to save their careers at any cost, thus proving that this was all intentional on their part to complete and sustain its demise.

QUESTION 2: Why didn’t Lincoln’s Martial Law policies abate and the government return back to normal following the Civil War?

ANSWER 2: The federal government for the American Republic had IMPLODED when the southern states decided to secede from the Union and walk out while Congress was still in session. Absent the presence of those southern state delegates, Congress could not adjourn and could not move forward for lack of a quorum! President Lincoln became the federal law under Martial Law until a new federal government could be assembled.

QUESTION 3: President Lincoln was a lawyer, a Title of Nobility, and several delegates and predecessors’ were lawyers! Now how can that be, given that the original 13th Amendment prohibited persons possessing a, “Title of Nobility,” from ever holding a seat in government and given that the 13th Amendment had not been “omitted” until 1871, during the Lincoln Administration?

ANSWER 3: The Truth is that the American Republic never enjoyed a Constitutional government beginning with the election of George Washington. George took office one year before the Constitution permitted; he subsequently overthrew the organic Constitution; reinstated the British owned Virginia Colony Corporation; altered the Oath of Office requirements; installed a corporate Military government in place of a Civilian government and replaced the Common Law with a commercial law known as “Admiralty” or “the law of the sea.” George then declared that: “All of America is now under water!” George was a 32nd Degree Freemason and a descendent of William, the Prince of Orange, the Sovereign King of America, according to the signed copy of the, “Paris Treaty of 1783.” This gave him the notion that he too could become King of America!

We all have been taught to think and believe that George Washington was this great military man of honor; a hero and “The father of this country.” If you were a Congressman and part of that Great Political Conspiracy and knocking down approximately three to four million a year, you might be inclined to believe that hogwash too but in actuality, George was the first traitor to the American Republic and who was memorialized by Congress by the construction of the Washington Monument, a 555 foot tall sea level obelisk, representing that: “America is now under water!”

QUESTION 4: Why was President Lincoln forced to declare Martial Law and exercise Executive Privilege to create policy during and after the Civil War, when Martial Law was always intended to be a temporary solution?

ANSWER 4: Martial Law was imposed rather than admit that the Union was dissolved. Under Martial Law, Lincoln became the federal law until he and Congress could regroup, and war was then declared as a distraction.

Note: The Civil War was never about the slave question but that is what we were taught in order to conceal the historic truth and Lincoln subsequently became the second memorialized traitor to the American Republic. I cannot find any evidence to support the notion that the southern state governments were a part of this grand conspiracy however their secession and attack on Fort Sumter was both convenient and timely! When the southern delegates rejoined the corporate federal government they to shared in the fruits of the piracy of American labor and industry.

QUESTION 5: Why did Congress feel the need to renew Lincoln’s Order of Martial Law, every year since the Civil War?

ANSWER 5: The federal government has committed an ongoing treason against the American Republic from day ONE and the organic Constitution would have severely restricted the Congress and the President. Under Martial Law those restrictions are suspended, which in turn grants the Corporate “alleged” President the power of Executive Privilege to create policy without Congressional oversight. Since Martial Law can only be invoked during War or during Acts of Civil disobedience, the corporate federal government has obviously declared War upon the American Republic ever since 1781. Hence, their reason to renew Lincoln’s Martial Law each year!

NOTE: By 1933, the Roosevelt Administration passed the Emergency Banking Act. Concealed within this act is a modification of the Trading with the Enemy Act, wherein Congress has declared that the American people are the enemy of the federal government! Also concealed within this Act, Roosevelt dissolved the Virginia Colony Corporation.

QUESTION 6: How could Congress pass the Organic Act of 1871, when the US Constitution absolutely prohibited government corporations?

ANSWER 6: The Organic Act set the stage for a new federal corporation and prevented the Lincoln Administration from having to disclose to the American public that the federal government was dissolved and never was constitutional, which would have exposed that the Civil War was used as a distraction and treasonous solution to their problem.

NOTE: I believe that Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address was completely heartfelt and was the act of a repentant man who felt totally responsible for all the death and destruction that had occurred. I also believed that a guilt ridden Lincoln constantly placed himself in harms way, hoping that he would be dispatched with prejudice.

QUESTION 7: Why did Congress feel the need to create a new Municipal Charter for the District of Columbia?

ANSWER 7: Had Congress disclosed that secession by the south had legally dissolved the federal government, the American public probably would have demanded that a new Constitutional government be created, with new elections held because of a lack of faith in the previous delegates and that would have destroyed their federal careers; positions of power and visions of grandeur. So the Organic Act was passed and a new commercial corporation created having a Constitutional appearance and reference (ie) UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, under which was concealed the original private foreign Virginia Colony Corporation. Under this new corporation, all of them could profit from the commercial piracy of American labor and industry.

QUESTION 8: Why did Congress copy and modify the organic Constitution to create a “mission statement”?

ANSWER 8] Congress was better able to maintain the “illusion” of a constitutional government for the American Republic, by using and modifying the organic Constitution as a “mission statement” without officially touching the organic Constitution! The federal officials regarded this plan as plausible deniability and business as usual. All they ever had to claim was that a mistake had been made by omitting Article XIII. Congress’s new “mission statement” can also be easily modified to suit their collective preference without convening a Constitutional Convention. Hence: The adoption of the Civil Rights Act and Tax Laws, etc. were all a corporate ruse! It was the corporate “mission statement” that was actually being modified by all their new amendments and NOT the organic Constitution and this is how it appears lately that Congress has unlawfully repealed several Constitutional amendments without convening a Constitutional Convention! Everything that has happened in government during the past 224 years has been an “illusion” and the original organic Constitution remains in tact and valid!

NOTE: The US Printing Office reprints the organic Constitution; the Articles of Confederation; the Declaration of Independence and the Northwest Territorial Treaty, every four years. These four documents are the laws of the land or the foundation of all American law and can be researched at the US Printing Office.

QUESTION 9: Why was this “mission statement” published and taught by all government controlled public and parochial schools, as the one and only organic Constitution of America?

ANSWER 9: The purpose behind this decision and their procuring educational control, was to dumb down the American public and control what we are taught, know and believe using fraudulent information and various other constructive forms of propaganda through altered publications, the media, the press and movies. The organic Constitution needs stricter controls but would have actually prevented the federal usurpation, propaganda, oppression, fraud, commercial slavery and theft that has occurred throughout the years but no one in the American Republic was paying attention to what was to happening and they placed far too much trust in their elected representatives! In all fairness, we were a nation of immigrants and the bulk of our ancestors were illiterate, so it was actually quite easy for Congress to carry out this usurpation and conspiracy.

NOTE: If you incurred a lot of debt for an education, you’re going to really be upset to learn that in a free society your college degree and most of your education will be absolutely worthless. You will probably need to be deprogrammed and then re-educated.

QUESTION 10: Up to the year 1871, why is it that out of the sixteen US Presidents, who had previously served, was Washington and Lincoln, the only US Presidents memorialized by the Congress?

ANSWER 10: The corrupt efforts of Washington and Lincoln’s Administration did the most to undermine the American Republic and to further the goals of the private foreign corporate partnership and their commercial piracy of American labor and industry! That made Washington and Lincoln hero’s in the eyes of the Congress and so we were taught and conditioned like trained monkeys, to laud these two Presidents’ as Great American Hero’s! The Nobility regard us as their slaves and so we are conditioned to celebrate their beliefs, holidays and hero’s!

How could this have happened, you ask? Certainly somebody should have caught on to this federal plot before now? Well they did, and all it took was a little government propaganda claiming that those individuals are mentally ill, drug dealers or are involved in a terrorist organization and plot to destroy this country! Next, incorporate the full weight of the FBI, to take those Patriots into custody on false charges and everyone stops paying attention to the message and the evidence these true Patriots were attempting to expose!

Still don’t believe that this was all possible? Well, consider this: What is the first thing we do when a baby cries? We distract them with funny faces, baby talk, rocking or play peek-a-boo and if we discover the right distraction, the baby stops crying! This is exactly how our state and federal politicians “handle” us and the three best distractions they discovered were, “fear, debt and war!”

These Traitors and Pirates don’t do anything in a hurry because time is always on their side. Some of their plans have taken as long as one hundred years to fulfill and some will never be fulfilled but that has never deterred them.

HISTORIC SYNOPSIS: In 1871 the “slave question” and “Lincoln’s election” divided a Nation and set the stage for a conspiracy to create a new private foreign corporation designed to convert the federal government into a business and pirate America’s labor and industry. The next step was to divert the public’s attention by creating a distraction using fear, debt and war. Hence, the south secedes; the federal government implodes; Martial Law is imposed and Lincoln suddenly enjoys the power of a Dictator by and through “Executive Privilege.” [Sounds allot like today, doesn’t it!] Fort Sumter is attacked, War is Declared, and patriotism and prejudice is force fed to the American public! Fear, Debt and War creates hardship for the Republic while Commerce flourishes and fills the pockets of the Politicians and their partners in crime, the European Royal and Elite owners of the Virginia Colony Corporation!

During all this distraction, the private foreign corporation called, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is created and filed; the organic Constitution is copied as a corporate “mission statement,” absent Article XIII and both replace the Municipal Charter for the District of Columbia! All that remained was to destroy all copies and references to the organic 13th Amendment and then convince the American public that this fraudulent rewrite is the one and only Constitution of the United States of America! CHECKMATE! And this devious example became a paradigm for all future historic events!

The New Hampshire Legislature was coy and subtle in their recent effort at transparency, by suggesting that the removal of Article XIII [the missing 13th Amendment] was merely an “omission” and that the fraudulent Constitutional rewrite in 1871 was intended to be used only as a corporate “mission statement” for the District of Columbia. Obviously some habits are hard to break!

What they haven’t said is that: We AMERICANS are really SOVEREIGN and that all American governments, courts and agencies are unconstitutional private foreign CORPORATIONS for profit; that have absolutely NO authority or jurisdictional power over the SOVEREIGN AMERICAN REPUBLIC! The Supreme Court admitted this in the year 2000, in their decision of [Bond v. United States, 529 US 334, 2000] and our government controlled media swept it neatly under the carpet! In an attempt to avoid repercussions, the government created a false case and decision titled [US v. Bond] before the federal appeals court reversing the US Supreme Court. Some of you would never realize that there is NO body of law that can reverse the US Supreme Court; it’s the highest court in America even under their corporate regulations but then creating “illusions” and lying to the American Republic is second nature to them!

I choose to believe that these New Hampshire Legislators are subtlety circumventing a nefarious history in which they and their brotherhood continue to play an integral part in! I also believe that the members of that state legislature now foresee their future arrest, loss of liberty and political demise and that this recent attempt at transparency, is actually an intelligent attempt to solicit some degree of leniency and forgiveness from the American public. You be the Judge!

Blessings, Judge Dale, retired

 From the ACS Editor:

Let’s not forget that in 2000 the so-called Supreme Court was pressured into unconstitutionally deciding the Gore v Bush election.  So by then, the Bush cabal had the ability to manipulate the Supreme Court.  The fact that this criminal regime (in control of the federal corporation) could and would bury a court decision like Bond v. US (2000) is certainly within the realm of probability, just as Judge Dale reported. 

 

BATFE Ruling Creates New Hurdle To Private Gun Manufacture

January 7th, 2015 by

Activist Post

It only took two days before the anti-gun American bureaucracy began chipping away at the Second Amendment in areas where Congress and the President, despite being backed by billion dollar NGOs and Foundations, have so far been unsuccessful.

On January 2, 2015, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE) issued its ruling regarding “whether Federal Firearms Licensees (FFL), or unlicensed machine shops, may engage in the business of completing, or assisting in the completion of, the manufacture of firearm frames or receivers for unlicensed individuals without being licensed as a manufacturer of firearms.”

The ruling that was made in order to address the issue that ATF Ruling 2015-1 has called into question – whether or not the ability of American citizens to produce their own weapons, pass them down, and modify those weapons in specific capacities will remain a viable option.

Thankfully, the BATFE is not attempting to entirely eliminate the ability of individuals to manufacture their own weapons, but the agency is attempting to limit that ability.

So far, the policy of the BATFE’s Firearms Technology Branch (now called the Firearms Technology Industry Services Branch) as it was enumerated in 2010 remains the same. The BATFE states that “For your information, per the provisions of the GCA, an unlicensed individual may make a ‘firearm’ as defined in the GCA for his own personal use, but not for sale or distribution.” The FTB continued by stating “Also, based on the GCA, manufacturers’ marks of identification are not required on firearms that are produced by individuals for personal use.

Prince Law Offices analyzed the policy statement and concluded that “it is completely lawful, as acknowledged by ATF, for one to manufacture his/her/its own firearm, provided there is no intent to sell or distribute it.” However, the lawyers’ blog also asked another pertinent question, “but what about when that individual is incapable of turning a block of metal or 80% lower into a functioning firearm?

Regardless, the ruling from the BATFE was justified on the grounds that the agency had been receiving “inquiries from the public” on the issue of private gun manufacture. Of course, given the history of the BATFE, one would be justified in wondering whether or not these “inquiries” in fact existed.

Nevertheless, the BATFE began its ruling by explaining part of the issue at hand – that some individuals purchase “castings or machined/molded or other manufactured bodies (sometimes referred to as “blanks,” or “80% receivers”) that have not yet reached a stage of manufacture in which they are classified as ‘firearm frames or receivers’ under the Gun Control Act of 1968 (GCA).” Many of these individuals are not able to complete the manufacture of the gun, particularly the fire control cavity, and, for that reason, seek out a Federal Firearm Licensee (FFL) or a machine shop in order to assist them in the remaining steps of the procedure.

True to form, the BATFE has ruled that not only are FFLs and gunsmiths not allowed to complete the process of manufacturing these guns, but private machine shops are not allowed to complete the process either, even if the machine shop is merely allowing its equipment to be used by the individual producing the gun.

The ruling states,

An FFL or unlicensed machine shop may also desire to make available its machinery (e.g., a computer numeric control or “CNC” machine), tools, or equipment to individuals who bring in raw materials, blanks, unfinished frames or receivers and/or other firearm parts for the purpose of creating operable firearms. Under the instruction or supervision of the FFL or unlicensed machine shop, the customers would initiate and/or manipulate the machinery, tools, or equipment to complete the frame or receiver, or entire weapon. The FFL or unlicensed machine shop would typically charge a fee for such activity, or receive some other form of compensation or benefit. This activity may occur either at a fixed premises, such as a machine shop, or a temporary location, such as a gun show or event.

A business (including an association or society) may not avoid the manufacturing license, marking, and recordkeeping requirements under the GCA simply by allowing individuals to initiate or manipulate a CNC machine, or to use machinery, tools, or equipment under its dominion or control to perform manufacturing processes on blanks, unfinished frames or receivers, or incomplete weapons. In these cases, the business controls access to, and use of, its machinery, tools, and equipment. Following manufacture, the business “distributes” a firearm when it returns or otherwise disposes a finished frame or receiver, or complete weapon to its customer. Such individuals or entities are, therefore, “engaged in the business” of manufacturing firearms even though unlicensed individuals may have assisted them in the manufacturing process.

Held, any person (including any corporation or other legal entity) engaged in the business of performing machining, molding, casting, forging, printing (additive manufacturing) or other manufacturing process to create a firearm frame or receiver, or to make a frame or receiver suitable for use as part of a “weapon … which will or is designed to or may readily be converted to expel a projectile by the action of an explosive,” i.e., a “firearm,” must be licensed as a manufacturer under the GCA; identify (mark) any such firearm; and maintain required manufacturer’s records.

Held further, a business (including an association or society) may not avoid the manufacturing license, marking, and recordkeeping requirements of the GCA by allowing persons to perform manufacturing processes on blanks or incomplete firearms (including frames or receivers) using machinery, tools, or equipment under its dominion and control where that business controls access to, and use of, such machinery, tools, or equipment.

Held further, this ruling is limited to an interpretation of the requirements imposed on persons under the GCA, and does not interpret the requirements of the National Firearms Act, 26 U.S.C. 5801 et. seq.

While not a ruling on the level of a gun ban or a direct ban on the private production and manufacture of guns, it is nonetheless an example of the chipping away of the Second Amendment rights of American citizens bit by bit, minuscule ruling by minuscule ruling.

While I can understand the rationale behind the determination where the individual is under the “instruction or supervision ” of an unlicensed machine shop, as the machine shop or its employees would seemingly be causing the machine to perform the modifications to the 80% lower, I cannot understand or see any (legal) rationale, where the non-licensed machine shop only makes available the equipment and does not provide any instruction or supervision. If the machine shop merely offers individuals the opportunity to utilize its equipment for either a set fee or hourly rate, as a number of machine shops and vocation technical schools offer, the business or school is not involved in any distribution of the firearm nor is it engaged in the business of manufacturing firearms, as the individual retains absolute possession and control in the manufacture of the firearm. The ridiculousness of this determination and logical outgrowth suggests that any manufacturer of drills, drill presses, drill bits, CNC machines, 3d printers…etc is also involved in the distribution of firearms and engaged in the business of manufacturing firearms, even though they only sold a product that the end user elected to utilize in a particular way. If the machine shop only offers its equipment for rental, and does not provide any supervision or guidance, it is no different than the manufacturer of the equipment being utilized.

To be clear, this ruling does not end the practice of manufacturing one’s own firearm. It does, however, put a serious financial dent in the process not only for the individual producing their firearm but for the myriad of companies that produce what is known as “80% lowers.” By ruling that individuals must be able to complete the entire process with their own tools, the number of individuals able to do so (due to their lack of all the proper tools) is likely to go down drastically and thus, the amount of firearm parts and accessories sold and manufactured will be vastly reduced.

The Prince Law Offices, the organization that was largely responsible for revealing the recent BATFE ruling, commented further on the “plethora of concerns” raised by the ruling by asking,

What if the individual borrows a tool from a neighbor? What if the equipment utilized is jointly owned (such as marital property)? Can a company offer membership, whereby any member is entitled to utilize the company equipment for free, and the member complete his/her/its firearm on the company equipment since the business would not be engage in the business? Do machine shops now need to inquire of the individual as to what he/she/it is going to be utilizing the machinery for?

In addition to an analysis of the ruling from a legal standpoint, the blog for Prince Law Offices provides an excellent appraisal of the ruling from more personal, Constitutional perspective. The blog states,

Clearly, there is opportunity for anyone or entity aggrieved to challenge ATF’s Ruling but will anyone from the Industry step up to the plate? With a few recent exceptions, our Industry has generally declined to push-back against ATF’s overarching determinations. Many in the Firearms Industry believe that they can make a deal with the devil and not get burnt (ATF-41p anyone?) or that if they make any waves, they’ll be in the cross hairs of the out-of-control agency known as ATF. Unfortunately, both of those positions have led us to where we are today. We take it on the chin, time after time, and allow ATF to do as it wishes. Either, we need to start pushing back (as some are now doing) or there won’t be an Industry to fight for and our Industry isn’t just an industry, its the Second Amendment.

While the reports of this new ruling will undoubtedly produce a chorus of criticism against those concerned by and opposed to it, with proponents and apathetic observers suggesting that the ruling is no big deal and that, if you can afford to pay the machine shop you can afford the tools, it should be remembered that the issue is not owning tools or mere changes in minor details, it is the ability of free individuals who have a Constitutional and a natural right to own and produce guns for purposes of self-defense that we should be concerned with. What could not be accomplished (yet) with laws passed by Congress or even Executive Orders signed by the President is being accomplished bit by bit as a result of minute rule changes by any one of the myriad organizations that govern the private facets of gun ownership, transfer, and production.

1-7-2015 12-06-49 PM

The game is simple – what cannot be accomplished by law or decree can be accomplished through small and incremental rule changes that go largely unnoticed and unopposed at the time of their implementation. As time progresses, America acclimates to the “rules.” We may not like them but that’s the way it is. It should be clear enough by now that it is high time for Americans to straighten up their backs and change “the way it is.”

2015 Reminder: Government Word is Worthless

January 5th, 2015 by

government-word-is-worthless/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=

email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+pakalert+%28Pak+Alert+Press%29

By Robert Barsocchini

As US government figures and departments, such as the “FBI” (which, according to its own documents, tried to “destroy Martin Luther King, Jr.”), continue to make and act on “official pronouncements”, let’s remember that these people have less than no credibility.  They have used lies, extreme violence, and stolen property to build themselves the most massive garrison/exploitation/surveillance state in human history, and are thus the very last people who should be taken at their word.

1-5-2015 10-59-40 AM

 

We can review innumerable current and recent lies and their consequences, but we should always keep in mind that they are nothing new.

Here are two grave examples of lies by the US government industry that we must continue to talk about, as most people are still entirely unaware of them thanks to a corporate/government information system that benefits from fostering nationalistic support for US global terrorism.

1.

Pentagon historians write (ch. 18) that in June, 1964, a top US official relayed a secret message to the military commander of the brutal and hated US puppet-dictatorship in South Vietnam that “…the United States Government would in the immediate future be preparing U.S. public opinion for actions against North Vietnam.

Within two months, on August 2, 1964, the United States Government carried out its planned, coordinated Gulf of Tonkin disinformation campaign.  US officials fabricated an entire event, then announced the fake event to the US public via various media outlets, to justify a massive escalation of the USA’s ongoing genocide against the people of Vietnam and Indochina generally.

US officials said, straight to the faces of the US public, that Vietnam attacked a civilian US ship in international waters.  In reality, it was a US military ship illegally invading Vietnamese territorial waters, andit was never attacked.  The US followed this up by entirely fabricating yet another such story.

Having thus “prepared” US public opinion through mass, coordinated, brazen lying, the US proceeded to kill millions more people in Indochina and send tens of thousands more young US men (many under forced death-labor, or “draft”, “laws”, which US officials also made up) to their violent deaths.  At the same time, the US was persecuting and brutally repressing people at home for peacefully speaking out against the war, jailing them as well as firing live rounds into crowds, killing or crippling several young people.

2.

After the biggest instantaneous terrorist attack in world history, the nuclear wipe-out of the bustling civilian city of Hiroshima, Truman looked straight into the faces of the US people and said the US had just detonated the first atomic bomb “on Hiroshimaa military baseThat was because we wished in this first attack to avoid, insofar as possible, the killing of civilians.

This should tell you something about the value of such official statements.  They are not only worth nothing, but are in fact poison, justifying and “preparing US public opinion”, through coordinated, outright deception, for the continued killings of millions of people.  These preposterous lies about wishing to avoid the killing of civilians continue today, repeated essentially verbatim by US government/industrial figures at all levels regarding every crime and massacre they perpetrate.  The stolen Pentagon Papers show that the only effective check on intentional US mass-killings of civilians is how much they can get away with without causing a revolution at home or utter denouncement internationally, the latter of which they have beenincapable of avoiding.

On PBS, a WWII “documentary” I happened to catch (one of innumerable dishonest, nationalistic, US-state-terror-propagating WW2 “documentaries” produced for US TV) featured the above, televised statement in which Truman announced the US nuking of Hiroshima.  However, PBS cut out the part where he lied and said Hiroshima was a military base and that the US chose to attack it because it was trying not to hit civilians.  Clearly, they didn’t want to show how wholly and brazenly the highest, most exalted “leader” will calmly, casually, confidently lie to the face of every captivated, heavily taxed outsider.

What these documentaries and Hollywood movies never reveal is that the US government did not enter WW2 to help the Jews or the Chinese.  The US, for profit and power reasons and knowing very well what the fascist groups were doing (persecuting Jews, bombing/exploiting civilians), supported both the Japanese fascist/colonial invasion of China and European fascism/colonialism (Hitler, Mussolini, Franco).  Support continued (Hitler was – you guessed it – a “moderate”) until US government-industrial planners determined that these groups were starting to get too strong, to horn in too much on raw materials (natural resources) and labor markets that the US wanted to dominate, potentially enabling these countries to shake off their dependency on US industry.  Had these fascist groups curbed their ambitions a bit, they would today very likely still exist as US puppet/client regimes, like the fascist Saudi theocracy, which became a US client in the 1930s when Saudi oil was discovered, and remains one today.

LIARS – LIARS – LIARS

WE ARE DROWNING IN LIARS

Since most of you folks believe you put these scumbags in office, instead of the International Investment Banking Cartel. Who is to blame for your continued participation in this game of “fool the people”? The people are running around like headless chickens, while the Banker-Butchers laugh their ass off. If you really want honest government in America, I suggest you get involved in research and wake up a few thousand sheep. Remember; the big corporations are also controlled by the Banker-Butchers! Also remember that the best way to stop a war is to get rid of the generals. In this case it’s the Banker-Butchers. If you want to continue living the good life, EARN IT!

The Four Things You Can Count On Following the Collapse of the Dollar

It is easy to misinterpret the signals of our economy from afar when we see people driving cars everywhere and we tend to think that our economy as not being that bad. However, the fact remains that 40 years ago Americans owned those cars that we see them driving. Today, we are renting them as 40% of us are leasing our vehicles. As we drive up and down our neighborhoods, we see people living in houses and we lie to ourselves and use this as a  false barometer to convince ourselves that everything is OK. However, many of these homes we see people living in, have lost all of their equity. The logical answer to the question “When will we have a depression”, should be answered by stating “We have an $18 trillion dollar annual deficit and that is the good news. We have $240 trillion dollars of debt from unfunded liabilities and we have a stunning $1.5 quadrillion dollar debt. So, you better grab all the food, water, guns and ammunition that you can and run for the hills”!  But as long we see people driving in cars and living in houses, most Americans are going to deny the truth. And the last thing that I wanted to do on the first day of a new year, was to be the harbinger of doom and gloom. Yet, I feel compelled to speak the truth, on this New Year’s Day, because I might be able to get one more person to take the steps necessary to help increase the odds of their survival in response to what is coming. History shows that one can count on four things occurring following the collapse of the dollar.

 The Last Great American Garage Sale

On multiple occasions in this column, I have thoroughly documented the following facts which demonstrate that the banksters are stealing our assets in preparation for them to economically survive what is coming:

  1. The Seventh Circuit Court of Appealsruled that when you put money into the bank, you have transferred ownership of that money to the bank. This ruling represents government sponsored theft in the highest order, yet most of us are unaware that this happened.
  2. TheG20 nationsdeclared the money in your bank account to not be money. Therefore, the FDIC insurance for your savings.
  3. The MERS mortgage fraud is ongoing and homeowners are still having their homes stolen without legal justification.
  4. The Federal Reserve, in 2012, began to print money to the tune of $40 billion dollars a month in order to purchase mortgage backed securities.
  5. The banksters have practiced stealing the secured accounts of American in the MF Global (MFG) scandal, resulting in the loss of $6.3 billion dollars of secured investment funds.Nobody went to jail.
  6. In April of 2013,  the banksters are manipulating the price of gold as evidenced by the actions of “Goldman Sachswho told their clients earlier that they recommend initiating a short COMEX gold position.” After investors were duped into panic selling, the banksters bought up massive sums of gold. The banksters were buying gold while getting out the American Stock Market and the megabanks. Why? Because the dollar is on the verge of collapse.
  7. This past week, the banksters signaled that they were no longer attempting to gain control of any more gold as they began to repatriate goldwith their rightful owners in Europe. This means that the crash could happen at any time.

The only thing left to do is for the banksters to steal your bank accounts. The correct “crisis” will bring about the collapse of the dollar now that the wealth transfer has largely been accomplished.

What America Will Look Like Following the Collapse of the Dollar

The aftermath of an economic collapse can take different forms, however, history demonstrates that there are some universal things you can count on:

#1 Obamavilles

1-1-2015 2-59-54 PM

1-1-2015 3-00-49 PM

#2 Dramatic Food Shortages

1-1-2015 3-05-33 PM

Because of “Just In Time” deliveries, the American food industry operates on quick and multiple deliveries and survives only as the result of the rapid payment of invoices. As the failing economy reaches to the service industry, most of these business will fail in very large numbers. Who then, will be delivering the food?

#3 Food Riots

1-1-2015 3-08-08 PM

1-1-2015 3-09-08 PM

Because of the food shortages, riots and organized gang violence will occur. The military is trained to isolate these areas, but will not intervene. If you call 911, nobody will be answering. This will be the time that you wished you had listened to many in the alternative media because this is the time that America will begin to see a large loss of life.

  1. Martial Law Will Be Declared

DHS and the military have already practiced for this development. Travel will be limited and it will stopped all together in areas where the civil unrest is at its worst.

The  2012 and 2014 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), will allow government officials to “disappear” anyone they want to and for any reason, or no reason at all.  The NDAA suspends habeas corpus, provides for indefinite detention and this is done on the premise that certain kinds of Americans are threats (e.g. Second Amendment supporters, Bible-believing Christians). This is where the present harassment of Christians will turn into the outright persecution of Christians.

I think the public has a right to know how its government plans to handle future protests. Is America the new Venezuela, Egypt, or Ukraine?  A previously secret document which was leaked online; entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations (PDF).

RIOT FORMATIONS

H-42. Quick-reaction force teams should be established with a minimum response time. Because of the physical nature of riot control, individuals in riot control formations should not carry rifles. Nonlethal attachments should follow closely behind the riot control formation. Lethal coverage must be provided for this entire formation. (See FM 3-22.40.)

DESIGNATED MARKSMEN

H-43. During a nonlethal engagement, the use of designated marksmen provides confidence and safety to those facing a riot. If a lethal threat is presented, the designated marksmen in overwatch positions (armed with appropriate sniper weapons mounted with high-powered scopes) can scan a crowd and identify agitators and riot leaders for apprehension and fire lethal rounds if warranted. Additionally, they are ideally suited for flank security and countersniper operations. (See FM 3-22.40.).

1-1-2015 3-11-22 PM

Travel restrictions will be a part of this process.

Government Control Over All Fuel and Transportation

These are some of the things that government can do to you courtesy of several executive orders.

Executive Order 10990

Allows the government to take control over all modes of transportation, highways, and seaports.

Executive Order 11003

Allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.

Executive Order 11005

Allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways, and public storage facilities.

Executive Order 10997

Allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels, and minerals.

Government Control Over All Food and Water

Executive Order 10998

Allows the government to take over all food resources and farms

 The Ability to Enslave the American People

Executive Order 11000

Allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.

Executive Order 11001

Allows the government to take over all health, education, and welfare functions.

Executive Order 11002

Designates the Postmaster General to operate national registration of all persons.

Executive Order 11004

Allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.

Ability to Grant the President Total Dictatorial Control

Executive Order 11051

Specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.

Executive Order 11310

Grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.

Executive Order 11049

Assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued over a fifteen year period.

There are more examples, but I think you get the idea. Your government has practiced to subjugate and even murder you in times such as these.

Conclusion

Is there anything that can be done to stop the egregious violations of our civil liberties? The short answer is no! However, there are some things that can be done to mitigate the threat and to soften the landing following an economic collapse and this will be the subject of my next article in this series.

 

US Power Centers Splinter as Chaos Rises

December 24th, 2014 by

http://www.thedailybell.com/news-analysis/35933/US-Power-Centers-Splinter-as-Chaos-Rises/

By Staff News & Analysis

Investigators Said to Seek No Penalty for C.I.A.’s Computer Search … A panel investigating the Central Intelligence Agency’s search of a computer network used by staff members of the Senate Intelligence Committee who were looking into the C.I.A.’s use of torture will recommend against punishing anyone involved in the episode, according to current and former government officials. Its decision not to recommend anyone for disciplinary action is likely to anger members of the Intelligence Committee, who have accused the C.I.A. of trampling on the independence of Congress and interfering with its investigation of agency wrongdoing. The computer searches occurred late last year while the committee was finishing an excoriating report on the agency’s detention and interrogation program. – New York Times

Dominant Social Theme: Government officials should have more legal leeway than the average person because they make more important decisions.

Free-Market Analysis: The US is splitting apart: Some 60 years of expanding authoritarianism has created political and economic facilities that are now beginning to face off against each other.

There are dozens of intel agencies, hundreds of military specializations, vast bureaucracies at local, state and federal levels – all supported by a worldwide dollar economy that virtually forces other nations to hold dollars in order to buy oil.

Increasingly, as the struggle for resources grows more pronounced, each of these entities will involve themselves in growing “turf wars.” It is not, of course, just a Western problem. Europe has similar woes and its fringe parties are becoming more extreme.

What is going on in the US is both significant and rapid. We can see that the CIA is now in a confrontational position regarding Congress, according to the New York Times. In fact, CIA officials who wiretapped Senators will not be punished.

This is just one of several newsworthy items reported over the weekend. Another was the aggregate shooting of three policemen over the weekend, two in New York and one in Tarpon Springs Florida.

While these are terrible tragedies from a purely human perspective, there is good evidence that such incidents are increasingly being used as fodder for power struggles. The New York Times reported on tensions between the Mayor and police in the aftermath of the New York Shooting:

For de Blasio, Attack Comes Amid Tension Over Police … Mayor Bill de Blasio spoke in sober terms at a news conference on Saturday at Woodhull Hospital after two police officers were shot and killed in Brooklyn … It is the sequence that every mayor dreads: the ominous report, the scramble to the hospital and the confirmation that, yes, an attack against the police has proved fatal.

But for Mayor Bill de Blasio, the tragedy on Saturday — when two police officers were shot and killed in an ambush in Brooklyn, according to the authorities — arrived at a particularly trying moment, amid an already fractious relationship with the police.

Police union leaders and officers could be seen turning their backs to the mayor and the police commissioner, William J. Bratton, as they walked past, in a video taken at the hospital where the two held a news conference on Saturday.

A written message from Edward Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, addressed the mayor directly. “Mayor de Blasio,” it read in part, “the blood of these two officers is clearly on your hands.”

The anger seems unusually fierce between the mayor and the police. Meanwhile, the tension between police and local communities, especially communities of color, seems to be growing. AP reported the following yesterday:

New Jersey‘s state police union has issued an email alert to the group’s 33,000 members warning them to take extra caution after two NYPD officers were murdered.

New Jersey State PBA Executive Vice President Marc Kovar said in the email Sunday morning that all members and officers should take extra caution and change up routines in the coming weeks.

He cites heightened hostility from nationwide protests that he says has led to a “fever pitch of anti-police sentiment.”

Our interpretation involves dominant social themes and what we call “directed history.” To be blunt: In our view, the West is being leveled by historical forces as well as elite determination to expand global governance.

For over a decade the BRICS have been celebrated as a group of increasingly powerful countries capable of creating a kind of capitalism that can compete with if not win out over Western capitalism. In fact, recently, China surpassed the US in various measures of industrialization and output.

The US dollar is gradually being replaced in Asia and, of course, Russia, too, as tensions rise between the US and Russia over Ukraine and other military and industrial issues.

Various measures such as NAFTA and CAFTA have drained US industrial might while an increasingly intrusive regulatory and tax regime has further splintered US industrialism and entrepreneurialism.

The US now seeks to collect taxes from its citizens all over the world and to penalize banks that don’t cooperate with its new policies. Is it unfair to conclude that US political and banking elites are actually working against the best interest of the US as a successful country? Is that too harsh?

We have believed for a long time that US political, economic and military problems are in some sense manufactured and then exacerbated. The mainstream media, for instance, inflames problems by reporting on them copiously and repetitively.

And the system itself, corrupt as it is, is yet borne up on tidal waves of money. The Pentagon has never even made an effort to discover the US$2 trillion Donald Rumsfeld admitted to losing before 9/11. Meanwhile, US intel continues to multiply with some 16 separate spy agencies, many of them focused on the citizenry itself.

The FBI and Homeland Security have issued advisories declaring certain “constitutionalist” views to be questionable and even suspicious. The upshot of all of this is an alienated citizenry and increasing governmental paranoia. Here’s more from The New York Times:

The computer search raised questions about the separation of powers and caused one of the most public rifts in years between the nation’s intelligence agencies and the Senate oversight panel, which conducts most of its business in secret. It led to an unusually heated and public rebuke by Senator Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat who is the committee’s chairwoman.

Three C.I.A. technology officers and two lawyers had faced possible punishment. In their defense, some pointed to documents — including notes of a phone call with Mr. Brennan — that they said indicated that the director supported their actions, according to interviews with a half dozen current and former government officials and others briefed on the case.

… The panel’s specific conclusions are still being finalized, and it could be weeks before they present a report to the C.I.A. But officials said that the five agency employees had been informed that the panel would recommend that they not be disciplined. …

“What did he know? When did he know it? What did he order?” said Senator Carl Levin, the Michigan Democrat who is a member of the Intelligence Committee, said in an interview last week. “They haven’t answered those basic questions.”

There have been other times in US history when the nation and its institutions seemed to be divided against themselves. Most notably, of course, the Civil War comes to mind. But today’s adversarial situations are complicated, in our view, by the Internet.

As a result, those who have in mind socioeconomic destabilization of the US can create the necessary elements but they cannot control the outcomes.

As events unfold, the potential is for more chaos not less. Lately, we’ve been writing about various ways that people ought to position themselves and their loved ones given Western societies’ evolving difficulties.

Second passports, purchases of precious metals, overseas business and residential locations are all suggestions that people are acting on as Western economic progress continues to sputter while social stresses build. (See other article this issue for more on High Alert’s planned expat community in Colombia.)

People – especially those with means – increasingly anticipate urban unrest and diminishing domestic economies; but what has not been clear until recently is the possibility that the US’s many elaborate sociopolitical and economic power centers may take to quarreling with each other.

The result will surely be even more chaos and polarization, where people gradually give up the concept of fair outcomes under the law and expect increased levels of authoritarianism.

As governance begins to fail, there will arise cries for yet more authoritarianism and this will surely further the expansion of a kind of police state, not just in the US but throughout the West.

Conclusion

The failure of governmental legislative and enforcement agencies will likely feed on itself and the outcomes cannot be seen as positive.

Second Base – What “They” Have Done “For” – You By Anna von Reitz

December 23rd, 2014 by

http://scannedretina.com/2014/09/22/second-base-what-they-have-done-for-you-anna-von-reitz/

 Posted by arnierosner

Written By Anna von Reitz

At first base you learned that what you have been thinking of as “your government” is in fact a private, foreign, for-profit governmental services corporation called the UNITED STATES. This entity is owned and operated by the INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND, which is an agency of the UN. The UNITED STATES, INC. has fifty “STATE” franchises doing business as the “STATE OF OHIO” and the “STATE OF WISCONSIN” and so on, just as Burger King or Sears or Dairy Queen have local franchises.

An earlier private, for profit governmental services corporation known as the United States of America, Incorporated, functioned from 1868 to 1933 when it entered into bankruptcy reorganization and remained in Chapter 11 from 1933 to July 1, 2013. It had fifty “federal state” franchises operating as the “State of Ohio” and “State of Georgia” and so on, too—-all part of the “Federal Reserve System”.   The Federal Reserve was organized under the auspices of a foreign nation calling itself the United States of America (Minor) composed of what are more normally thought of as the “federal territories and possessions”—-Guam, Puerto Rico, American Virgin Islands, American Samoa, et alia.

So at the same time during most of your life there have been two “federal governments”—that is, “federal” governmental services corporations— operating side by side in collusion to defraud you.   When FDR bankrupted the United States of America, Inc. he and his “Governors”— the federal State franchise owners—pledged the “good faith and credit” of “their states and the citizenry thereof” as “sureties” backing the debts of the bankrupt corporation during its reorganization.

The UNITED STATES, INC. took up where the United States of America, Inc. left off, and simply passed through all its charges for services directly to the presumed sureties—- us.   The problem is that we never consented under conditions of full disclosure to be “federal” states nor “federal” citizens.   It was merely self-interested “policy” of these corporations and their creditors to “presume” that we were all “voluntary sureties” and to plunder our estates and “indebt” us for their spending.

They never told us all the lies and processes they employed to justify and accomplish this identity theft and fiduciary trust fraud used to usurp our natural position as beneficiaries of our own estates and to instead name their corporations as both the comptrollers and beneficiaries of our labor, our lives, our relationships, our businesses, our homes, and our land.

Now, you are going to learn and thoroughly understand that part of it.

Let’s use the name of the present “Secretary of the Treasury”—- “jacob joseph lew” as the name in our example, in hopes that he may get the point.

First, let’s look at Secretary Lew’s birth state: New York.

This is the original “State of New York” one of the original Thirteen (E)states that joined together as the united States of America. Notice that “united” is just an adjective describing a union or association or as they put it, a “perpetual confederation” of these landed “(E)states”   The actual name of this country is the “States of America”.   The actual and still very much in effect document binding the states together is The Articles of Confederation (1781).

Any idea that any “Constitution” dissolved or replaced the Articles of Confederation is a self-serving lie perpetuated by those who would defraud and enslave you. The “Constitution” —-the real Constitution— is an equity contract and public trust indenture that neither describes the states in terms of their geography nor binds them together in any way except as mutual subscribers to the governmental services to be provided by the “contract government”.

The 1824 Edition of the Webster’s Dictionary clearly states that the word “federal” was a synonym for “contract”, a usage and convention used repeatedly in relation to other documents of the time.   It will help you to de-program if every time you see the words “federal government” you instead insert “contract government”—-for that is what it is. It is and has always been a foreign, maritime entity under contract to provide nineteen enumerated governmental services to the subscribing American states. The Constitution, like all Constitutions, is a debt agreement stipulating the services under contract, the limits of the authorities granted, and the payment terms.

This commercial contract is NOT what created your country and formed the Union of States. It merely helped to “perfect” the Union by providing common defense, common currency, and common administration of certain mutually agreed upon services. It also set common limits on the “federal government” in its administration of these mutual services to be provided to the subscribing states.

When we talk about a “state”, even a geographically defined “state” we must be aware that we are talking about a fictional entity.   It doesn’t really exist, except via social agreement and convention. In truth there are no state borders established by God, no painted line etched by Heaven to separate New York from New Jersey, and when you go to Court and are accused or judged by anything calling itself the “State of New York” or “STATE OF NEW JERSEY” it is not the land and water of these states that levels the charges or claims to be injured or rises up to accuse you.

All such “States” are fictional in nature, including the original States of the Union bound together by The Articles of Confederation.

Little baby “jacob joseph lew” is born on the land of the American organic, geographically defined New York State. He is given his individual name— his “given name” which is “jacob joseph” by his parents and he inherits his family surname “lew” from his father. Properly, his name as a living baby must be either denoted in all small letters as shown here, or he must be described, as in “Joseph-Jacob of the House Lew”. These are the only proper and lawful ways to name a living freeborn child, and it has been that way since the days of ancient Rome.   He is born as a civilian on the jurisdiction of the land, and as a natural –born American, he has complete civil authority. Even as a baby little jacob joseph lew possessed more civil authority on the land of New York State than the entire federal government, but he was blissfully unaware of that fact.

So we’ve already learned some important arcane information here: how to properly and lawfully name a living baby, how to name a land-based geographically defined “state”—-it’s “New York State”— versus a legal fiction political state—the “State of New York” created by social agreement and convention. Little jacob-joseph:lew was thus born on the land of New York State, and, at the same time, inthe State of New York.

We’ve already determined that he was born on the land as a civilian and with complete civil authority on the land, but what does this additional status of being born in the “State of New York” confer? We walk on the land and we swim in the water.   This second, political status falls under maritime jurisdiction. Jacob-joseph is still a civilian, so the “State of New York” operates in civil maritime.

To denote this fundamental difference in jurisdiction between the land and the sea, jacob joseph lew’s name on the land is “restyled” as “Jacob Joseph Lew”.

So you now have one baby, two names, and two completely separate jurisdictions— jurisdictions that are as absolutely and endemically separate from each other as the land and the sea.

Civil maritime is the jurisdiction in which merchant mariners and commercial “vessels” trade and sail the seas, so perhaps it is not awfully surprising that Federal Title 7 considers “Jacob Joseph Lew” a “vessel” and the Internal Revenue Code describes him as a warrant officer in the Merchant Marine Service when he exercises his “office” as a “withholding agent” working for an offshore Puerto Rican trust operated under the name “JACOB JOSEPH LEW”.

This third version, “JACOB JOSEPH LEW” appears shortly after “Jacob Joseph Lew” is “registered” by agents under contract to the Federal Reserve System as a vessel belonging to the United States of America, Incorporated.

Say, what?   Yes, those nice people at the New York Bureau of Vital Statistics aren’t working for the New York State. They are working for the State of New York. And the “State of New York” is a “federal state franchise” of the United States of America, Incorporated, which was owned and operated by the Federal Reserve System under the auspices of a foreign nation calling itself “the United States of America (Minor)”—–though they very rarely bother to include the word (Minor). This “other United States” is composed of a consortium of “American” “States” more often thought of as federal territories and possessions, including Guam, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, American Virgin Islands and “Other Insular States”. It’s a private corporation organized under the auspices of a foreign country operating “state” franchises in our midst.

All your life you have never used your real name or enjoyed your birthright or your God-given freedom, because these interlopers came to your Mother under conditions of non-disclosure and self-interested deceit by committing fiduciary trust fraud, they pushed your Mother to unknowingly donate you as chattel “entrusted” to their corporation— their “state” franchise” doing business as the “State of New York”, which allowed them to claim that you were “voluntarily” renouncing your birthright status as a civilian on the land of the New York State, and agreeing instead to be “enfranchised” and made “subject” to the “territorial jurisdiction” of the United States of America (Minor).

In one stroke, your misled and purposefully entrapped Mother gave this foreign, for-profit, private “State” franchise of the bankrupt United States of America, Incorporated (and their owners, the Federal Reserve Banks) legal title to you. Mrs. Lew was never told anything about the nature of the paperwork she was signing, but the “State of New York” became the trustee of little jacob joseph lew. And their very first act was to abuse the right of usufruct— the right of trustees to use the name of the beneficiary, so long as no harm is done to the beneficiary or their reputation.

You be the judge of the ultimate harm they have done to you and millions of others.

They immediately “redefined” jacob-joseph (and you) as a “US citizen” subject to the whims of the “United States Congress” acting as the government of the United States of America (Minor), a foreign, maritime, legislative democracy. This removed him— literally kidnapped him—from his natural jurisdiction on the land of New York State where he was born free and entitled to all his Natural and Unalienable rights—-and “subjected” him—as in “subject to a king” to the laws and jurisdiction of this foreign nation and its “territorial jurisdiction” and also made him a “surety” for the debts of the same “United States Congress” and the bankrupt “United States of America, Incorporated”.   They enslaved him and you and millions of others.

Instead of acting as his Trustee, the “State of New York” acted as a predator and changed the baby’s name to “Jacob Joseph Lew”. This is the way he was taught to refer to himself and the way he was taught to sign his name and that allowed the legal presumption that he was knowingly and willingly and voluntarily operating in their foreign civil maritime “territorial jurisdiction” as a “vessel in commerce” belonging to the “State of New York” —a franchise of the bankrupt United States of America, Incorporated, organized under the auspices of the United States of America, (Minor).

This is a sophisticated form of identity theft carried out against unsuspecting women and babes in their cradles by international banking cartels operating governmental services corporations under conditions of gross self-interested fiduciary trust fraud and deceit.

Next, the operators of this fraud scheme issued bonds based on jacob-joseph’s estimated lifetime earnings, next, they had the baby born on the land declared “legally dead” and committed probate fraud against him, then, they acted as creditors against his earthly estate and filed maritime salvage liens against his “vessel” for his estimated “share” of the expenses of the United States of America, Incorporated—-known as the “National Debt”.

All this was done to jacob-joseph and to you and virtually every other child born on the land of the State of America before anyone left grade school.   You were systematically entrapped, defrauded, kidnapped, transported to a foreign jurisdiction, suffered identity theft and mischaracterization, and were robbed of your natural rights and immunities by corporations in your employment and by individuals and institutions pretending to “represent” your lawful government and to act as your “trustees”.

This was done without your knowledge or consent on the basis of Third Party contracts (entered by the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Administration and your Mother) and under conditions of semantic and material deceit resulting in tainted, unilateral, undisclosed and grossly inequitable contracts serving to demean and enslave you.

After they killed off the baby born on the land via this legalized identity theft, the perpetrators settled in as parasites to feed off your labor and to “hypothecate” debt against your land, your homes, your businesses and everything else naturally belonging to you. The hired help— governmental services corporations merely under contract to provide stipulated services to the States—stole your identity, your credit cards, and your earthly estate—and proceeded to lord it over you, all without your knowledge or consent.

The facts of the fraud are revealed by “your” Birth Certificate, which is actually your fraudulent Death Certificate. Look at this document closely.   It is issued by the Registrar, an Officer of the Probate Court— proof positive that your earthly estate has been probated.   It is issued on bond paper, representing a debt and “promise to pay” bonds that have been issued based on the value of your earthly ESTATE, all numbered and securitized to benefit the United States of America, Incorporated and the very bankers and lawyers and politicians responsible for this deplorable criminality. It is issued to your given name styled in all capital letters, or in our example, to “JACOB JOSEPH LEW”.

This particular incorporated entity is an ESTATE trust created under Washington, DC Municipal Statute, Chapter 2, Vital Statistics, Section 7-201, paragraph 10. It is created under the auspices of the Washington, DC Municipality, a separate, independent, international city-state ruled as a plenary oligarchy by the members of the US CONGRESS, which acts as a Board of Directors for the UNITED STATES, INCORPORATED, which as you learned at First Base, owned and operated by the INTERNATIONAL MONETARY FUND, an agency of the UNITED NATIONS CORPORATION.

Right now, because the bankruptcy of the United States of America, Incorporated, finally settled on July 1, 2013, the parasites are setting up shop with new hosts—-the United Nations City State located in New York State.   They are booting up a new “FEDERAL RESERVE” under UN auspices and launching a new UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, INCORPORATED, and attempting to roll over the old ESTATE trusts operated under names styled as in “JACOB JOSEPH LEW” and to “redefine” what is left of “you” as a transmitting utility operated as “JACOB J. LEW”.

If we don’t put a stop to this craziness ourselves every commercial corporation and petty despot on earth will be misusing our names and naming legal fiction entities after us and claiming to have contracts and relationships with “them” and us that don’t exist and accusing us of owing their debts or owing them for services we never ordered, and similar outrages.

We will have not only the New York State and the State of New York (old Federal Reserve version) and the STATE OF NEW YORK (IMF version) and NEW YORK (their latest outrage), but we will have The state of new York, and the State of new York, and the New State of York and the State of New york and the new state of york, and as many permutations of style and spelling and order of words you can imagine —–all of which are created for the sole purpose of semantic deceit, identity theft, and criminal fraud.

It’s time to bluntly accuse these false trustees of the crimes they have committed and continue to commit against the Americans, Australians, Canadians, most Europeans, Japanese, and others who have been victimized by the same or very similar “Systems” of fraud and enslavement perpetuated by these international banking cartels, the Bar Associations, and criminal politicians.

Right now, the push is on to “consolidate sovereign debt” and use it as leverage against all the nations and governments of the world and to give control of this leverage to the handful of evil geniuses running the UNITED NATIONS CORPORATION.   The problem is that no such legitimate debts exist, and because of the fraud involved, no valid claims can be addressed to any of the people of any country. This mammoth faux pas and accounting nightmare has been caused by criminally corrupt governments, bankers, and lawyers—-and yes, by people who have been complacent and who have bought into the propaganda and the lies spun by these self-interested con artists for generations.

Now you know how the spiders spin their webs and you know how you wound up “removed” to Puerto Rican jurisdiction, paying debts you don’t owe, and so much more.

Tell your friends. Tell your neighbors. Set up your Grand Juries. Elect your Sheriffs and Judges to execute the Law of the Land against these hyenas. Boycott them and refuse service and refuse to pay any taxes for unwanted services. Serve your Notices to the members of Con- Gress that they do NOT “represent” you and do NOT represent your organic state. Do the same with the so-called Governors. Don’t let anyone or anything “represent” you. Show up and present yourself. Bring suit against the probate court for fraud perpetuated against you. File liens and commercial affidavits against these corporations, judges, clerks, lawyers, bankers, politicians—-the whole kit and caboodle.   They aren’t “public officials”. None of them have taken a single proper oath of any public office. They are nothing but private corporate “officers” impersonating lawful public officials—-criminals, in other words. They are all con artists knowingly or unknowingly occupying vacated public offices and abusing the assumed “powers” of those offices for private gain.

Most of all, inform the sheriffs, police, provost marshals, militia members, and members of the military. Educate them so that they have no excuse for condoning, supporting, or enforcing the “acts” and “orders” of these charlatans.

Rutherford Institute Asks U.S. Supreme Court to Reject Politically Correct Censorship, Protect Right of Students to Wear American Flag T-Shirts to School

December 19th, 2014 by

 http://us4.campaign-archive1.com/?u=f6eb78f457b7b82887b643445&id=c11472a24c&e=84f74f6a6a

WASHINGTON, D.C —The Rutherford Institute has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to reject a lower court ruling that declared it unsafe for California public school students to wear American flag t-shirts to school. In asking the Supreme Court to hear the case of Dariano v. Morgan Hill, in which several students were ordered by school officials to cover up their American flag t-shirts on May 5, 2010, allegedly because officials feared that other students celebrating the Mexican holiday Cinco de Mayo would be offended, Rutherford Institute attorneys note that the school should have focused on controlling unruly students and not on stifling patriotic speech protected by the First Amendment.

The Rutherford Institute’s petition for certiorari in Dariano v. Morgan Hill is available at www.rutherford.org.

“There are all kinds of labels being put on so-called ‘unacceptable’ speech today, from calling it politically incorrect and hate speech to offensive and dangerous speech, but the real message being conveyed is that Americans don’t have a right to express themselves if what they are saying is unpopular or in any way controversial,” said John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute and author of A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State. “Whether it’s through the use of so-called ‘free speech zones,’ the requirement of speech permits, or the policing of online forums, what we’re seeing is the caging of free speech and the asphyxiation of the First Amendment.”

On May 5, 2010, three Live Oak High School students wore patriotic t-shirts, shorts and shoes to school bearing various images of the U.S. flag. During a mid-morning “brunch break,” the students were approached by Assistant Principal Miguel Rodriguez, who told the students they could not wear their pro-U.S.A. shirts and gave them the option of either removing their shirts or turning them inside out. The students refused, believing the options to be disrespectful to the flag. Rodriguez allegedly lectured the group about Cinco de Mayo, indicating that he had received complaints from some Hispanic students about the stars and stripes apparel, and again ordered that the clothing be covered up to prevent offending the Hispanic students on “their” day. Principal Nick Boden also met with the parents and students and affirmed Rodriguez’s order, allegedly because he did not want to offend students who were celebrating Cinco de Mayo.

Arguing that the decision by school officials constituted viewpoint discrimination against pro-U.S.A. expression, Rutherford Institute attorneys filed suit on behalf of the students and their parents seeking a declaration that the action violated the First Amendment and injunctive relief against a vague school district policy allowing prior restraints on speech to be imposed upon students. The lawsuit asserted that school officials violated the students’ rights to Free Speech under the First Amendment, and their Due Process and Equal Protection rights under the Fourteenth Amendment. In November 2011, the district court ruled in favor of school officials, citing a concern for school safety. That ruling was affirmed by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in February 2014. Although the appeals court acknowledged that other students were permitted to wear Mexican flag colors and symbols, it ruled that school officials could forbid the American flag apparel out of concerns that it would cause disruption, even though no disruption had occurred. Three of the nine judges on the Ninth Circuit agreed with The Rutherford Institute that school officials violated long-standing Supreme Court precedent forbidding suppression of protected expression on the basis of a “heckler’s veto,” which occurs when the government restricts an individual’s right to free speech in order to maintain order.

Affiliate attorney William J. Becker is assisting The Rutherford Institute in its defense of the students.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

SO, it’s alright for the wet backs to offend American students, but it’s not alright for the American Students to offend the wet backs. And they call this LAW? The Judges should be required to eat the T-Shirts!

Supreme Court, you can K.M.A!

GOVERNMENT ARRESTING PEOPLE FOR ANTI OBAMA FACEBOOK POSTS!

This article will make you angry. The US Government is actively seeking those who criticize government, specifically Barack Obama, and arresting them without charging them. They are remanded to mental health institutions where they are given “training” on how to view the world.

Remind you of a little book that George Orwell wrote?
It gets worse.
Most of the victims of the government’s kidnapping scheme are veterans.

From The Rutherford Institute:

In the four years since the start of Operation Vigilant Eagle, the government has steadily ramped up its campaign to “silence” dissidents, especially those with military backgrounds. Coupled with the DHS’ dual reports on Rightwing and Leftwing “Extremism,” which broadly define extremists as individuals and groups “that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely,” these tactics have boded ill for anyone seen as opposing the government.

One particularly troubling mental health label being applied to veterans and others who challenge the status quo is “oppositional defiance disorder” (ODD). As journalist Anthony Martin explains, an ODD diagnosis

“denotes that the person exhibits ‘symptoms’ such as the questioning of authority, the refusal to follow directions, stubbornness, the unwillingness to go along with the crowd, and the practice of disobeying or ignoring orders. Persons may also receive such a label if they are considered free thinkers, nonconformists, or individuals who are suspicious of large, centralized government… At one time the accepted protocol among mental health professionals was to reserve the diagnosis of oppositional defiance disorder for children or adolescents who exhibited uncontrollable defiance toward their parents and teachers.”

The case of 26-year-old decorated Marine Brandon Raub—who was targeted because of his Facebook posts, interrogated by government agents about his views on government corruption, arrested with no warning, labeled mentally ill for subscribing to so-called “conspiratorial” views about the government, detained against his will in a psych ward for standing by his views, and isolated from his family, friends and attorneys—is a prime example of the government’s war on veterans.

Raub’s case exposes the seedy underbelly of a governmental system that is targeting Americans—especially military veterans—for expressing their discontent over America’s rapid transition to a police state.
Here is a news story by RT (Russian Times) about Brandon Raub. Apparently the corporate media in the United States won’t tell his story:

To underscore how big this story truly is, John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute is the lead attorney defending the innocent victims targeted by the Obama Thought Police. Whitehead is quite famous for his defense of the Bill of Rights for the past several decades.
This is big. 
Obama wants everybody to think like a brain-dead zombie while he transforms America into Orwell’s 1984. 
Wake up.

Outcry after military veteran detained for anti-government Facebook posts

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/08/20/outcry-after-military-veteran-detained-for-anti-government-facebook-posts/

A former Marine involuntarily detained for psychiatric evaluation for posting strident anti-government messages on Facebook has received an outpouring of support from people who say authorities are trampling on his First Amendment rights.

Brandon J. Raub, 26, has been in custody since FBI, Secret Service agents and police in Virginia’s Chesterfield County questioned him Thursday evening about what they said were ominous posts talking about a coming revolution. In one message earlier this month according to authorities, Raub wrote: “Sharpen my axe; I’m here to sever heads.”

Police — acting under a state law that allows emergency, temporary psychiatric commitments upon the recommendation of a mental health professional — took Raub to the John Randolph Medical Center in Hopewell. He was not charged with any crime.

A Virginia-based civil liberties group, The Rutherford Institute, dispatched one of its attorneys to the hospital to represent Raub at a hearing Monday. A judge ordered Raub detained for another month, Rutherford executive director John Whitehead said.

“For government officials to not only arrest Brandon Raub for doing nothing more than exercising his First Amendment rights but to actually force him to undergo psychological evaluations and detain him against his will goes against every constitutional principle this country was founded upon,” Whitehead said.

Raub’s mother, Cathleen Thomas, said by telephone that the government had overstepped its bounds.

“The bottom line is his freedom of speech has been violated,” she said.

Thomas said her son, who served tours as a combat engineer in Iraq and Afghanistan, is “concerned about all the wars we’ve experienced” and believes the U.S. government was complicit in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. One of his Facebook posts, she said, pictured the gaping hole in the Pentagon and asked “where’s the plane?”

Whitehead said he found nothing alarming in Raub’s social media commentaries. “The posts I read that supposedly were of concern were libertarian-type posts I see all the time,” he said.

The big concern, Whitehead said, is whether government officials are monitoring citizens’ private Facebook pages and detaining people with whom they disagree.

Dee Rybiski, an FBI spokeswoman in Richmond, said there was no Facebook snooping by her agency.

“We received quite a few complaints about what were perceived as threatening posts,” she said. “Given the circumstances with the things that have gone on in the country with some of these mass shootings, it would be horrible for law enforcement not to pay attention to complaints.”

Whitehead said some of the posts in question were made on a closed Facebook page that Raub had recently created so he questioned whether anyone from the public would have complained about them.

“Support Brandon Raub” Facebook pages have drawn significant interest, and other Internet sites had numerous comments from people outraged by the veteran’s detention.

Raub’s supporters characterized the detention as an arrest, complaining he was handcuffed and whisked away in a police cruiser without being served a warrant or read his rights. But authorities say it wasn’t an arrest because Raub doesn’t face criminal charges.

Col. Thierry Dupuis, the county police chief, said Raub was taken into custody upon the recommendation of mental health crisis intervention workers. He said the action was taken under the state’s emergency custody statute, which allows a magistrate to order the civil detention and psychiatric evaluation of a person who is considered potentially dangerous.

He said Raub was handcuffed because he resisted officers’ attempts to take him into custody.

Guess What Happened The Last Time The Price Of Oil Crashed Like This

December 1st, 2014 by

http://www.activistpost.com/2014/11/guess-what-happened-last-time-price-of.html

12-1-2014 7-55-44 AM

Michael Snyder
Activist Post 

There has only been one other time in history when the price of oil has crashed by more than 40 dollars in less than 6 months.  The last time this happened was during the second half of 2008, and the beginning of that oil price crash preceded the great financial collapse that happened later that year by several months. Well, now it is happening again, but this time the stakes are even higher.

When the price of oil falls dramatically, that is a sign that economic activity is slowing down.  It can also have a tremendously destabilizing effect on financial markets.  As you will read about below, energy companies now account for approximately 20 percent of the junk bond market.  And a junk bond implosion is usually a signal that a major stock market crash is on the way.  So if you are looking for a “canary in the coal mine”, keep your eye on the performance of energy junk bonds.  If they begin to collapse, that is a sign that all hell is about to break loose on Wall Street.

It would be difficult to overstate the importance of the shale oil boom to the U.S. economy.  Thanks to this boom, the United States has become the largest oil producer on the entire planet.

Yes, the U.S. now actually produces more oil than either Saudi Arabia or Russia.  This “revolution” has resulted in the creation of  millions of jobs since the last recession, and it has been one of the key factors that has kept the percentage of Americans that are employed fairly stable.

Unfortunately, the shale oil boom is coming to an abrupt end.  As a recent Vox article discussed, OPEC has essentially declared a price war on U.S. shale oil producers…

For all intents and purposes, OPEC is now engaged in a “price war” with the United States. What that means is that it’s very cheap to pump oil out of places like Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. But it’s more expensive to extract oil from shale formations in places like Texas and North Dakota. So as the price of oil keeps falling, some US producers may become unprofitable and go out of business. The result? Oil prices will stabilize and OPEC maintains its market share.

If the price of oil stays at this level or continues falling, we will see a significant number of U.S. shale oil companies go out of business and large numbers of jobs will be lost.  The Saudis know how to play hardball, and they are absolutely ruthless.  In fact, we have seen this kind of scenario happen before

Robert McNally, a White House adviser to former President George W. Bush and president of the Rapidan Group energy consultancy, told Reuters that Saudi Arabia “will accept a price decline necessary to sweat whatever supply cuts are needed to balance the market out of the US shale oil sector.” Even legendary oil man T. Boone Pickens believes Saudi Arabia is in a stand-off with US drillers and frackers to “see how the shale boys are going to stand up to a cheaper price.” This has happened once before. By the mid-1980’s, as oil output from Alaska’s North Slope and the North Sea came on line (combined production of around 5-6 million barrels a day), OPEC set off a price war to compete for market share. As a result, the price of oil sank from around $40 to just under $10 a barrel by 1986.

But the energy sector has been one of the only bright spots for the U.S. economy in recent years.  If this sector starts collapsing, it is going to have a dramatic negative impact on our economic outlook.  For example, just consider the following numbers from a recent Business Insider article

Specifically, if prices get too low, then energy companies won’t be able to cover the cost of production in the US. This spending by energy companies, also known as capital expenditures, is responsible for a lot of jobs.

“The Energy sector accounts for roughly one-third of S&P 500 capex and nearly 25% of combined capex and R&D spending,” Goldman Sachs’ Amanda Sneider writes.

Even more troubling is what this could mean for the financial markets.

As I mentioned above, energy companies now account for close to 20 percent of the entire junk bond market.  As those companies start to fail and those bonds start to go bad, that is going to hit our major banks really hard

Everyone could suffer if the collapse triggers a wave of defaults through the high-yield debt market, and in turn, hits stocks. The first to fall: the banks that were last hit by the housing crisis.

Why could that happen?

Well, energy companies make up anywhere from 15 to 20 percent of all U.S. junk debt, according to various sources.

It would be hard to overstate the seriousness of what the markets could potentially be facing.
One analyst summed it up to CNBC this way

This is the one thing I’ve seen over and over again,” said Larry McDonald, head of U.S strategy at Newedge USA’s macro group. “When high yield underperforms equity, a major credit event occurs. It’s the canary in the coal mine.

The last time junk bonds collapsed, a major stock market crash followed fairly rapidly.

And those that were hardest hit were the big Wall Street banks

During the last high-yield collapse, which centered around debt tied to the housing sector, Citigroup lost 63 percent of its value in the following 60 days, Kensho shows. Bank of America was cut in half.

I understand that some of this information is too technical for a lot of people, but the bottom line is this…

Watch junk bonds.  When they start crashing it is a sign that a major stock market collapse is right at the door.

At this point, even the mainstream media is warning about this.  Just consider the following excerpt from a recent CNN article

That swing away from junk bonds often happens shortly before stock market downturns.

“High yield does provide useful sell signals to equity investors,” Barclays analysts concluded in a recent report.

Barclays combed through the past dozen years of data. The warning signal they found is a 30% or greater increase in the spread between Treasuries and junk bonds before a dip.

If you have been waiting for the next major financial collapse, what you have just read in this article indicates that it is now closer than it has ever been.

Over the coming weeks, keep your eye on the price of oil, keep your eye on the junk bond market and keep your eye on the big banks.

Trouble is brewing, and nobody is quite sure exactly what comes next.

Police Power Is The Foundation Of The State

November 20th, 2014 by

http://www.alt-market.com/articles/2406-police-power-is-the-foundation-of-the-state

 http://personalliberty.com/police-power-foundation-state/

11-20-2014 3-33-27 PM

This article was written by Bob Livingston and originally published at Personal Liberty Digest

“Government is not reason; it’s not eloquence; it is force. Like fire, it’s a dangerous servant and a fearful master…”                          George Washington

If there are two words in the English language that we need to understand, they are the words “police power.”

Government is police power. Government by definition, by nature, by history and by practical existence is police power. Government would not and could not exist without police power. When governments lose their police power, they collapse.

Every act of government and its politicians is motivated by its police power. Government police power is awesome, and it is a hush-hush subject.

Let’s look at the sixth edition of “Black’s Law Dictionary,” which defines police power as: “The power of the state to place restraints on the personal freedom and property rights of persons for the protection of the public safety, health and morals or the promotion of the public convenience and general prosperity. The police power is subject to limitations of the federal and state constitutions, and especially to the requirements of due process. Police power is the exercise of the sovereign right of a government to promote order, safety, security, health, morals and general welfare within constitutional limits and is an essential attribute of government.” Marshall v. Kansas City, MO. 355 SW 2nd 877,883.

Government’s promotion of “order, safety, security, health, morals and general welfare” is the essence of its “public policy.” The term “public policy” is a very innocent and disarming term which in reality is the very opposite of the public impression.

“Public policy” is actually the police power in action. It is the manifestation of police power the implementation of government force. Back to “Black’s Law Dictionary” on public policy: “That principle of the law which holds that no subject (that’s you) can lawfully do that which has a tendency to be injurious to the public or against the public good. The principles under which the freedom of contract or private dealings is restricted by law for the good of the community. The term ‘policy,’ as applied to a statute, regulation, rule of law, course of action, or the like, refers to its probable effect, tendency, or object considered with reference to the social or political well-being of the state…”

There you have it: a police state. Do not be deceived by Black’s mention of “limitations of the federal and state constitutions…” Police power is not limited and does not come about by due process but by usurpation and wrongful seizure of your mind and body through deception.

If you read this “Black’s Law Dictionary” definition closely, you will see that the interest of the state in all matters prevails over you, the individual.

When politicians and bureaucrats talk about democracy and public policy, they speak with a forked tongue. They want you to believe that these terms refer to personal liberty. They do not, and the politician knows that they do not. They know that they refer to the police power and enforcement of state authority over the individual. They are code words for government force.

Police power is physical force. If you fail to file and pay your income tax, you will be introduced to the police power of the government.

But it is no longer even necessary to “break the law” to see the police power of government. Now your assets can be seized simply because the state does not like the way you are depositing your own funds into your own bank accounts. The IRS is now seizing the bank accounts of businesses and individuals because they regularly made deposits of less than $10,000, which is a perfectly legal practice.

Under U.S. civil asset forfeiture laws, IRS agents can seize property they suspect of being tied to a crime even if no charges are filed, and the agency can keep a share of the property whether a crime is proven or not.

Police power goes far beyond the definition given above from “Black’s Law Dictionary.” We speak of the subtle and hidden power of government to persuade the public mind.

Government persuasion is the indoctrination of the individual through his church, his public school, his fraternities and the media to sacrifice his person, his individuality and his property for the “greater good” of the group. Group is translated as government authority.

Once we yield our minds to government force under the pretense of “the greater good” or “the national interest,” there is no need to concern ourselves with our rights, for we have surrendered them to the state. Police power is sovereignty of the state over mind, body and soul. To believe otherwise is to live by illusion.

During our public (non)education indoctrination, we learned about the abolition of slavery in America. However, we learned nothing about the nationalization of slavery with police power as outlined above. Statutory freedom shackled with mental marriage to the beast is a study in the pathology of the public mind. This means that we are guaranteed certain freedoms by way of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights on one hand and brainwashed into servitude on the other.

Such a thought process creates what I call a “double-minded” person. By definition, double-mindedness is the mental state of believing or attempting to believe two opposing thoughts at the same time.

11-20-2014 3-34-39 PM

This simple and brief teaching of James 1:8 in the Bible on the double-minded man is most profound. The teaching is limited to this one sentence. There is no description or revelation as to what exactly a double-minded man is, but describes him as unstable. The above definition of double-mindedness is our definition.

The scriptural charge of being unstable is of serious importance. The “American Heritage Dictionary” defines “unstable” as “fickle” and “lacking control of one’s emotions; marked by unpredictable behavior.”

Double-mindedness is a recognizable psychological phenomenon and it is used to neutralize human thought and action. It is very subtle because it almost defies description. Herein lies its power to deceive and control human emotions.

There is both collective and individual double-mindedness. Almost all politicians are aware of this phenomenon and use it to deceive the electorate.

An example of collective double-mindedness is last week’s national elections. Every American who voted would tell you, if asked, that he or she believed in life, liberty and property. Yet regardless of how he or she voted, he or she voted for a political cabal that is progressively undermining basic liberty and transferring property to the state without payment. The only reason that people could be seduced into destroying their own liberty is because, over time, they have unknowingly adopted the morality of the state. Their double-mindedness has numbed their senses so that they do not know that political oratory is an appeal for sanction of their own plunder. The electorate never knew the real issues and none were ever stated.

The individual or group is double-minded when it clings to a philosophy that denies and is contradictory to reality, regardless of its name or label. Political parties were never intended to be different in substance, only in name and oratory. Before any third and fourth party devotees smugly agree, the same applies to all political parties. A rose under any name is still a rose.

No, there is no difference. That hope is based on illusion and illusion on double-mindedness. The great deception goes on.

The double-minded man forever seeks liberty under party labels. There are two illusions here. The first is that political parties appear different simply because they have different names. The second great illusion is that political parties lead to political freedom. The opposite is true. Collective plunder does not lead to human liberty, but to human conformity. When Americans had freedom, there were no political parties.

WE DECLARE OPEN RESISTANCE TO OBAMA’S TYRANNY

November 19th, 2014 by

http://www.newswithviews.com/Ewart/ron179.htm

“Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There has never been a democracy that did not commit suicide.” —John Adams, 2nd President of the United States

“Dominance. Control. These things the unjust seek most of all. And so it is the duty of the just to DEFY dominance and to challenge control.” —Robert Fanney, contemporary author

11-19-2014 12-11-41 PM

For six long, torturous years, Obama, the Democrats and the environmentalists have declared open warfare on the American people and on the U. S. Constitution. From the lies and the deceit behind the passage of Obama Care; to the unconstitutional, unilateral actions by Obama on immigration and his failure to comply with immigration law and close the borders; to his severe climate change restrictions that will devastate our economy when there is no climate crisis; to the EPA’s and the BLM’s attempts to take over every mud puddle and lock up every acre in America; to the in-action by Obama when his red lines are crossed and to his open defiance of the two other branches of government and the American people, Obama, the Democrats and the environmentalists are ripping the guts out of America!

Where is the outrage?

When a government grows more powerful, as the American government has, its power feeds upon itself and it becomes arrogant and secretive. The more secretive it becomes the more it will silence those who want to expose the secrecy. It becomes a power unto itself and it recognizes no restraints or limits. We are dangerously close to this condition, if in fact we aren’t there already, no matter which party is in power. The final condition is absolute power. Sadly, dealing with the government (at any level) is not unlike changing a baby’s dirty diaper. It is distasteful, frustrating, disgusting and it smells.

This “power” over the people of America is being controlled by one president, 435 Representatives in the House, 100 Senators in the Senate, 9 justices on the U. S. Supreme Court and half a hundred federal bureaucracies that answer only to the President. This doesn’t include local and state government. The President, 545 politicians and the un-elected directors of federal bureaucracies, with a growing iron fist, are controlling approximately 315,000,000 Americans. Since the adults of that 315,000,000 people get to vote, you would think that it wouldn’t be that difficult to control the President, 545 politicians and the un-elected directors.

But tragically, the American people are hopelessly divided, divided between those that are self-reliant, productive, independent and responsible (the producers)and those who are surviving off of the productivity of the producers. (the takers) The producers are forced to pay for the takers by an all-too powerful, arrogant government who recognizes no restraints or limits on its power. Unfortunately, the takers can vote themselves a share of the producer’s productivity and the producers don’t have enough votes to counter the takers’ plurality, with the government exploiting the takers’ vote to increase its power. 

In effect, the producers have become de facto slaves to the takers, at the hands of government.

Under the rules of Saul Alinsky, Obama’s hero, this condition becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy and the number of takers grows and grows until it overwhelms the ability of the producers to “feed” the growing number of takers. Add in millions of illegal aliens and what you get is the current condition in most third-world countries.

Where is the outrage?

But this issue has been hashed and re-hashed so many times by so many different authors it has become boring. What’s the solution? What can the producers do so that they don’t end up being slaves to the takers and all-powerful government? How do they break up the cabal between the government and the takers? How do they sever the entangled ties between big government, big business, big labor, big bankers and the one-world-order crowd that want to dissolve American sovereignty, steal our wealth and resources, cut off our energy, flood America with illegal aliens, repeal parental rights and confiscate our land?

Remember the town hall meetings in August of 2009, where the people displayed their anger over the impending Obama Care legislation? That was about the time the grass roots Tea Party erupted on the national stage. Although these events led to a resounding defeat for House Democrats in the 2010 election, we still got Obama care from the Democrat Party by lies and deception. Apparently, the 2009 town hall anger and the defeat of a few House Democrats wasn’t enough to make a needed course correction to a national path that will surely lead to economic collapse, chaos and anarchy. Maybe the 2014 mid-term elections will.

The government and the takers seem hell bent on propelling us into oblivion and there is no current political will to change the suicidal direction we are on. So how do we trigger a course correction that will truly be effective in restoring our freedom, our national pride and prevent the dissolution of American sovereignty? We can’t seem to do it by votes. The takers have an apparent plurality. And even if all 545 politicians were replaced with new blood, would that by itself be enough to slow down the run-away train we are on? Not if the politicians pander to the takers in order to keep being re-elected because the takers have the most votes.

So the solution becomes changing the national mindset on a large enough scale, such that the politicians will end up doing the right thing in the interest of saving America from murdering itself ….. OR, the solution could simply be a dedicated minority that will “Declare Open Resistance” against growing government tyranny and will have the commitment and courage to stir the pot so vigorously, at every level of government, that the national mindset will have to shift towards survival rather than self-induced suicide. That’s a tall order but it has already happened in small parts of America.

It happened at the Jarbidge River in Nevada with the Jarbidge Shovel Brigade. It happened on the Klamath River in Southern Oregon and Northern California with the Klamath Bucket Brigade. It happened at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada just recently. It is going to happen in Washington State shortly when it is anticipated that over 5,000 gun owners will openly defy the new “I-594 Back Ground Check Initiative” that was just another egregious deception by government and the billionaire backers of the Initiative. The Initiative was nothing more than a back door into pure gun control.

In the 12-step AA program, the first step is to recognize and acknowledge that there is a problem. The next 11 steps provide a blue print on how to “fix” the problem. If an afflicted person won’t acknowledge the first step, the next 11 are moot. And so it is with our national dilemma. If we won’t acknowledge we have a problem, any steps to fix a problem we won’t even recognize, are dead on arrival.

To not recognize that America is in a state of moral decay and cultural decline and headed for national bankruptcy, is putting one’s head in the sand. However, if you are a taker, you don’t care, just so long as the government checks arrive at your mailbox and you get to vote to keep the checks coming. This does not apply to Social Security or Medicare recipients because they were forced to pay into the account that now pays them.

However, as a producer, with your income steadily declining to pay for the takers, the problem is paramount. You know that even if government took all of your income, it would never be enough. This run-away insanity has to stop and stop soon if national collapse is to be avoided.

Where is the outrage?

If you recognize the problem and the dire implications it has for the nation and for the future of your children and grandchildren, how can you not “Declare Open Resistance” against this growing government tyranny? America’s salvation rests in the hands of a dedicated minority that WILL “Declare Open Resistance” and has the commitment and courage “to stir the pot so vigorously, at every level of government, that the national mindset will have to shift towards survival as a free nation, rather than self-induced suicide ….. or abject slavery.”

  •  Are YOU ready to “Declare Your Open Peaceful Resistance” against a government that has lost all allegiance to the U. S. Constitution and to the principles of freedom and liberty? 
     Are you ready to take the pledge to save your country from a government that fully intends to increase its power over the people to the point of absolute power? 
     Are you ready to defend your country against the merging of America into a hopelessly corrupt global government? 
     Are you ready to take back your local government from the influence of the United Nations Agenda 21 policies and the U. S. government that is working in collusion with the United Nations against you? 
     Are you ready to stop the brainwashing and indoctrination of your children in the public school system and our national colleges? 
     Are you ready to work towards a sane national energy policy that works to increase our efficient energy sources for our growing energy needs and stop the subsidizing of alternative energy sources that are inefficient and costly?
     Are you at a point where you will work to repeal Obama Care and lobby your legislators for a sane health care solution that recognizes the sanctity of the doctor/patient relationship? 
     And you rural landowners, are you ready to draw a line in the sand and defend private property rights from all those who would take those rights from you, or your neighbor? 
     Are you ready to stiffen your back against the rising national debt and deficits and work to stop the profligate spending, at all levels of government? 
     Are you ready to exert your influence on federal policy makers to cut back on foreign aid to despots and dictators, restore America’s “Walk Softly But Carry A Big Stick” foreign policy and fully defend our borders against drugs and illegal alien invasion?

If you are ready to do these things and we are sure that many of you are, we strongly encourage you to take that pledge and make that declaration in writing, HERE. This is one simple action (that costs nothing) you can take that will let government know where you stand as a sovereign American citizen. On a grand scale this action will succeed. On a small scale, it is doomed to fail.

Help make this “Declaration of Open Peaceful Resistance” go viral.

Ladies and gentlemen, because we care so much about this country, we have taken the lead on this Declaration. We have sent a signed copy to some high profile elected officials at the federal level to start, including the President. We will continue to send our signed Declaration to more politicians and bureaucrats across the country over time so that they know exactly where we stand. We have made our Declaration. We have told them, “Not just NO! But HELL NO!” Will you?

As our 2nd President said: “Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There has never been a democracy that did not commit suicide.”

It remains to be seen whether John Adams’ prediction will hold sway for America. America’s survival could very well rest on those who have the courage to “Declare Their Open Resistance” to the tyrants, educated idiots and political hacks that now rule us. If you do not think they are tyrants, educated idiots, or political hacks, you do not know history, or you haven’t seen MIT Professor Gruber on TV yet.

But then if you are satisfied with what Obama, our government, the United Nations and the environmentalists are doing to America, no action is required.

“A DECLARATION OF OPEN RESISTANCE AGAINST
UNCONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT ACTIONS”

(You use the following for your own personal Declaration.)

        Whereas, for far too many decades, government, at all levels, operating almost virtually unrestrained by the U. S. Constitution and lobbied by socialists, radical environmentalists, special interests, corporations, bankers, unions and foreigners, has far exceeded its constitutional authority and has continuously assaulted or taken away our constitutional rights, as guaranteed and protected by the Declaration of Independence and the U. S. Constitution, and

        Whereas, all natural born or naturalized Americans are sovereign and free citizens of the United States of America and are only bound by the Constitution of the United States (and laws not in violation thereof) and by the Constitution of the state in which each individual resides, and

        Whereas, corrupt legislatures and bureaucrats, at all levels, in violation of their oath of office to preserve, protect and defend the U. S. Constitution, have, by lies and deceit, passed and are continuing to pass, voluminous, unreadable, incoherent acts, ordinances, regulations, restrictions, rules, edicts, laws and ratify treaties that are in direct violation of the strict and literal interpretation of our federal or state constitutions, pursuant to the intent of the framers of said constitutions, and

        Whereas, the President of the United States and the U. S. Congress have colluded with the United Nations to adopt UN resolutions and policies into American law without any treaty being debated and ratified by the Congress, in violation of the U. S. Constitution, and

        Whereas, the U. S. and state supreme courts have failed in their duty to literally interpret our Constitutions as the supreme law of the land and have inserted, in some cases, radical political, environmental, socialist, or international bias into their decisions, and

        Whereas, the net result of these acts by government, at all levels, is that all American citizens have lost many of their freedoms, their liberty and property rights, to the corrupt, unconscionable and unconstitutional violations of the supreme law of the land, at the hands of federal, state and local politicians, lawmakers and bureaucrats.

        NOW THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, that I, a lawful signatory to this petition and an independent, natural born, or naturalized, sovereign and free citizen of the United States of America, being of sound mind and body and of legal age, do hereby decree, ordain and affirm that I am not a slave, nor will I become a slave of the federal, state or local government, in any respect, or in any regard, and I will only be bound by the federal and state constitutions and by such laws that I interpret to not be in violation thereof, and

        BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that I will openly resist, by all peaceful means, and join others of like mind in a “Culture of Open Resistance”, against any attempts by the President of the United States, the U. S. Congress, federal or state bureaucracies, state legislatures and/or county or city councils, to violate my unalienable rights, as established by the Declaration of Independence and codified into law under the U. S. Constitution and the Constitution of the state in which I reside, and

        BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that I hereby place government, in all forms and at all levels, on notice that I stand ready to defend my sovereign, individual, natural, unalienable, God-given rights in open resistance by all legal means. However, if it becomes necessary and peaceful means are not successful to preserve my unalienable rights, “I may just decide to pledge my life, my fortune and my sacred honor to the United States of America and to all other American free men and women who will defend constitutional liberty and sovereignty.” 

         Signed, executed and affirmed by me, this __ day of ________, 201_.

An Engineered Collapse Of The Economy Would Trigger A US Police State

FEMA Doc And NDAA Could Bring Martial Law Crackdown

An Engineered Collapse Of The Economy Would Trigger A US Police State

NewsFocus Op/Ed, by Tim Watts – 122111

In September I wrote a piece titled The Fascist Takeover of the United States. It was my assessment that the current economic meltdown was no accident. It was a devious,  meticulously calculated plot to sink the United States and the world to its knees, to bring about the long planned new world order dreamt about by the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers. It wasn’t rocket science to figure out. All you had to do was look at the facts of the crisis and then examine the recourse taken by the Federal Reserve. Our best and brightest financial minds took a 180 away from the best option to stimulate the economy, choosing instead to bypass the taxpayer, retail and manufacturing, and going right to the crooks that created the disaster in the first place. Please see my article which is linked above for more on this.

That was my first clue that something was awry, that something was terribly amiss. It is impossible to think that our best and brightest economic minds somehow missed the impending collapse of 2008. It is unfathomable to consider that the financial geniuses of this country, people highly educated with master’s degrees in economics and finance, didn’t see this coming, nor understand the proper approach in how to dig ourselves out. The fact that they took the backasswards approach to the bailouts was a huge tip-off for this reporter. They chose to compound the problem with hyperinflation and to reward the crooks that are responsible for the collapse. So that was question one for me that something was terribly wrong.

The next red flag that stood out was the renewal of the National Defense Authorization Act for fiscal year 2012 (NDAA). Normally a defense spending bill, but this time it had a new twist added, the indefinite detention of people “suspected” to be terrorists, including American citizens. This was puzzling to me because there are already other acts that allow for this, such as the Patriot Act and the Homegrown Terrorism Act, among others. So I spent a couple of weeks studying the NDAA. What became readily apparent to me, aside from the strange redundancy among terrorism bills, was one key difference, that law enforcement was omitted and replaced with the military. This was a deafening siren of alarm for two reasons. Number one, it went against the long standing Posse Comitatus Act which expressly forbids the military from civil law enforcement in the US. Number two, with only one terrorist attack in ten years, it was totally unnecessary.

The House version of the bill was HR-1540 and the Senate version was S-1867. Both legislative bodies passed the bill with flying colors, despite the reservations raised by many, including this author. Fortunately some in Congress, such as Congressmen Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) and Ron Paul (R-TX), both had a keener insight than their  peers, choosing to vote no on the bill. Nevertheless, both versions of the bill passed and went through reconciliation and they now sit on President Obama’s desk awaiting his signature. Obama had threatened to veto the bill over the harsh language of citizen detention, but the bill’s initial sponsor, Carl Levin (D-MI), revealed that it was the White House that insisted on the verbiagebeing added to the bill in the first place.

With all of the above in mind, this author came to the conclusion that the NDAA had a more sinister intent. It didn’t take long to put the puzzle pieces together and surmise that the impending economic collapse was going to be tied to the NDAA. One only has to think for a moment of the repercussions when the economy crashes,totally, and there’s no food, no gas, possibly no utilities. People will indeed rise up en masse at that time, as expected… and planned for by the powers that be. At that point the military will be set forth upon the cities and streets of the US and martial law will be declared. And don’t be surprised if part of that military presence won’t be the cut-throat infantries of Academi, formerly known as Xe, and Blackwater.

Armed Police State – The 1033 Program

I need to back up for a moment and explain one more reason why I found the NDAA’s designation of the military as being suspicious. Those that follow the fascist changes in our government since 9/11 know all too well of the militarization of this country’s local police force. For the last ten years our government has been militarizing local police forces with some of the most state of the art equipment imaginable through a program known as the 1033 Program, passed in 1997 by Congress to provide law enforcement agencies with offensive assault equipment for fighting terrorism.

 

Police officers or heavily armed infantry assault soldiers?

This has been an arming of local law enforcement the likes of which has never been seen in this country’s history. US police have been provided with M-16 assault rifles, bulletproof Kevlar body protection, with kneepads, vests and helmets. They’re received flash grenade and tear gas grenade launchers, armored personnel carriers with battering rams, tear gas launchers and turrets on top. They’ve also got armored tanks, and even Shadowhawk drones equipped with night vision capabilities and possible grenade launcher addition. Other Army equipment includes remote controlled inspection robots, riverboats, helmet-mounted infrared goggles, mobile command units and Puma armored tactical vehicles.

Probably the most popular military item by far is the 10-man armored personnel carriers, weighing 16,000 pounds with a top running speed of 80 mph and costing anywhere from $256,000 to $270,000 a piece.

Folks, this is equipment normally used in war, or for Rambo. Some even go so far as to wear the actual camo-combat uniforms, admittedly to provide a shock and awe aspect.

The Pentagon dispersed $500-million in equipment in 2011, over double the $212-million doled out the previous year. This apparently doesn’t even take into account thebillions disseminated through federal grant money for anti-terrorism. Homeland Security awarded more than $2-billion in grants to local police in 2011. Advance orders for 2012 have risen 400 percent, according to the Pentagon Defense Logistics Agency.

Over 17,000 law enforcement agencies are currently stocking up on military equipment. Since 9/11, nearly $35-BILLION (34.8) in Federal grants have been awarded.

When gung-ho testosterone coursing cops get powerful new assault toys, they look for any chance to use them. As an example, just look at the proliferation of taser use. Even though they can be deadly and well over 400 people have died from them, they have become the hands down popular choice of police departments nationwide. Another example that indicates police look for reasons to use their new toys, figures show that SWAT team activity has risen significantly since the 1033 Program began, despite statistics showing that US crime rates have dropped to 40-year lows. Police appear to be getting more aggressive since receiving their new technical military power.

 

This is what the American people are being threatened with, armored forces controlled by political hacks.

Some people are asking why police officers need tanks and grenade launchers anyway.

The first question that comes to mind for me is, why have the purchase numbers gone up so high in 2011, and even higher yet for upcoming 2012? Why is the proliferation of police armament growing exponentially larger at this time?

I think the point is well made that these cops are armed to the teeth. These are not the police that your parents grew up with. They are more than capable to deal with terrorist attacks. The government has poured billions into this effort, so why make the investment and then forsake it for a military presence with NDAA? Does that make sense to invest billions of dollars and then suddenly say that we now need the military instead?

The NDAA Threat

So now that you know our law enforcement has been beefed up with military power, you have to ask yourself why the US military would possibly be needed for a few random terrorists? Why did the NDAA have to be amended to stipulate that military force should be used in the US if our police force has every bit the same capability?

They claim that we had 19 terrorists involved on 9/11, so how many are they expecting now? Are they expecting whole infantries of bazooka toting Muslim terrorist radicals? (An oxymoron if ever there was one.) If LA and New York could put up over a thousand police against simple Occupy protestors (1,400 at LA OWS), surely they can handle a terrorist threat with their new military-style armor.

More often than not, dealing with terrorist attacks is a post disaster issue. The few times that we are lucky enough to break up plots before the attacks, police SWAT teams have done the job. (And most of those were FBI-led terror plots to begin with.) We didn’t have to call in the Army. We certainly didn’t do it for 9/11 or the anthrax attacks. If, God forbid, we should ever have a nuclear or biological attack on US soil, the Army wouldn’t be needed since we already have able bodied citizen National Guard units for this. Face it folks, Armies are for an overwhelming show of force against a large body of people.

Exactly what is our government expecting?

So, given the current overly weaponized state of US law enforcement, what is the new impetus to put military soldiers on our streets for the occasional terrorist? We’ve had one terrorist attack on domestic soil in ten years. Aside from the alleged 19 terrorists on 9/11, it’s not like we have teams of radicals threatening everyday life in the US. So why the sudden push for the military, especially now, a decade after 9/11?

My thought is that it’s not about terrorists at all, but a much larger force that they fear, us! It would seem that they want the new amended NDAA law in effect for when the US economy crashes, to suppress “we the people.”

Quite frankly, the biggest threat to the US is the economy. The deadliest villain we face comes from within, the Wall Street pariahs and the Federal Reserve banksters.

Let’s be clear about the main issue, the military use in America is the key aspect of the NDAA bill. The ACLU is currently waging an all out campaign against thislegislation because it has the ability to be the last component of a permanent US police state.

FEMA COG Plan

Now, here comes an integral piece of the puzzle that ties the economic collapse and the newly amended NDAA bill together.

At the same time that the Senate was debating S-1867, the NDAA for fiscal year 2012, it appears that according to a recently uncovered Federal Emergency Management Agency document, FEMA was hammering out its own plan which appears to outline a martial law takeover via Continuity of Government (COG) through the engineered collapse of our economy. The nefarious powers that bemight very well employ use of the Hegelian principle, whereby they create a seemingly insurmountable problem (collapsed economy), then wait for the pained reaction (people desperate for food), before eventually offering a secretly prearranged solution (new currency system) which wouldn’t normally be accepted under non-threatening circumstances.

New government guidelines say that if you have more than a week’s worth of food, you could be suspected of being a terrorist. You have to seriously question why anyone in the US government would dare try to restrict its citizens from having more than a week’s worth of food. You would think that a caring government would want its people to have as much food as possible. It just makes good sense. As a matter of fact, FEMA has long been an advocate of having extra food on hand, just in case of emergency. Many people get paid every two weeks, so when they shop for groceries, they tend to shop for two weeks at a time. So why all of a sudden does the government not want its citizens to have more than seven days of food on hand? Perhaps they want to keep people in short supply in order to control them in a time of crisis? Nothing else about the seven day food limit makes much sense.

As Henry Kissinger once said, “Control oil and you control nations. Control food and you control people”

The FEMA document outlines new COG contingency plans for establishment of support personnel and administrative officials. On page three it lays out directives for dealing with the general public through use of Blue Force Situational Awareness (BFSA), a military identification system designed to designate friend and foe. It also talks of Geospatial Information Systems (GIS), as well as Command and Control. These are all warfare designations and terminology that have no legitimate reason for being used on US soil.

This is obviously why the NDAA says the US is now considered part of the battlefield. Under the Blue Force Situational Awareness, all COG, FEMA and military personnel would be designated with a blue code for friendly. One can only guess who then gets the red designation, since this applies to the US. It is a good bet that the general populace would be given a red code for enemy, or adversary.

The big question looming is, why on American soil do we have to implement procedures for combat, such as the Blue Force Situational Awareness (BFSA) protocol?

Under the plan all communication systems would come under authority of FEMA and the COG. This very well might explain the first ever national emergency alert drill that was recently held back in November. Perhaps they were testing the new network so that they had the capability in place to inform all Americans that martial law was being enacted and to remain inside their homes. The uncanny questionable timing with the NDAA amendment and this newly uncovered FEMA plan certainly gives one pause to wonder.

Recently uncovered government documents show that US FEMA detention camps have been put on 72 hour standby, waiting to spring to life at a moment’s notice.

The plan even reveals a long denied government emergency operations base, called a DUMB facility, short for Deep Underground Military Base. It is a 564 acre Homeland Security center 64 miles west of Washington DC called Mount Weather Emergency Operations Center(MWEOC).

If you think this is all a bit unsettling, or too bizarre to be real, then you should take a good look at the recently unearthed document which came from a publicly accessed government procurement website,www.FedBizOpps.gov which details this secret plan.

Connecting The Dots

This uncovered FEMA document could very well explain why the NDAA was amended to give the military authority to intervene in domestic law enforcement activities and detain US citizens indefinitely, usurping long standing Posse Comitatus laws in the process. It offers a reason why the economy was engineered to collapse, to become the catalyst for the destabilization of the US government as we used to know it. If so, this provides the mechanism for a global takeover by the ultra-rich Rothschild-Rockefeller central banking cartel, to bring about their new world order, a one world rule by the ultra-rich oligarchs. This is the culmination of the most treasonous plot this country ever knew, which began in 1913 with the enactment of the Federal Reserve system.

 

Some wonder why there is the need for a new Continuity of Government plan (COG) when there is already an existing plan in place. In the 1980s, Rex84 was uncovered during questioning of Colonel Oliver North at a hearing over Iran-Contra. On 9/11 the COG went into effect and to this day no one knows for certain if it was ever dissolved. Bush and Obama both have continued to sign and maintain the state of emergency order that was put into effect after the attacks.

So why are we now crafting a new COG, the 2011 NCP? What is so secret about the document that our government doesn’t want citizens to know? Could it perhaps be the reference to the long denied Mt. Weather facility? One could argue that this knee-jerk reaction is all for not, considering that most of our adversaries already have as much or more general intelligence on Mt. Weather as the American public has.

Whatever the reason, many are seriously questioning the government’s effort to now hide the recently discovered FEMA document.

Another curiosity from that document regarding Mt. Weather… if it’s supposed to be an internal classified government document, why do they go out of their way to describe the facility in travel brochure style if it’s for government agencies that already have access to the information? (“A 546 acre facility approximately 64 miles west of Washington, DC.”) It appears as if they’re introducing it for the first time. It certainly doesn’t sound like they’re being too secretive about it.

The timing of this uncovered continuity of government plan at this point in current history is certainly very circumspect to many who have taken note of the document. Many government readiness initiatives have already been implemented in the last year, with a significant portion coming together just since November.

November 9… the government conducted its first ever nationwide test of the EAS, the Emergency Alert System. Essentially the same as the EBS (Emergency Broadcast System), many questioned the impetus of a nationwide alert test at that time because we went through the entire cold war era without ever having a coast to coast test, plus another ten years after 9/11. So why all of a sudden did they decide to have a test in November? Seems kind of odd to go a decade after 9/11 before ever considering this.

November 18… FEMA publishes its Continuity of Government Plan NCP / PAMSS. This is the document that has stirred the recent fuss.

November 28… the Senate passes the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for fiscal year 2012, S-1867. The bill was sent to the reconciliation committee to be joined with the House version of the bill, HR-1540.

December 8… the White House releases its Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP) to address ideologically-inspired violent extremism in the Homeland. The document states, “As a government, we are working to prevent all types of extremism that leads to violence, regardless of who inspires it.” -President Barack Obama. This dovetails with the Empowering Local Partners To Prevent Violent Extremism In The United States which was released on August 1st.

December 16… the House and Senate Reconciliation Committee passes the NDAA, National Defense Authorization Act, sending it on to President Obama to sign.

December 31… Obama waits until a national drinking holiday to sign a bill that was ready for his pen since November 18. Why did he wait so long? He said it was “with a heavy heart” that he signed the bill, yet the actions taken by the administration prove that they were attempting to hide the signing under the guise of the New Year’s holiday.

February 8… Congress passes HR-658 a bill that allows for the use of 30,000 spy drones over the United States to spy on Us citizens. The initial plan is reproted to cost $63.4 billion dollars.

March 13… FEMA Corps announced regarding disaster preparedness which ties FEMA to CNCS.

March 17… NDRP  (National Defense Resources Preparedness) Executive Order is issued which details a takeover of personal property and all natural resources. It is for wartime, natural disaster and surprisingly enough,peacetime. It is released late Friday evening of the St. Patrick’s drinking holiday, just like NDAA on News Year’s eve.

The fact that all of this has come together all at once is hard to accept as coincidence. Couple that with the“Cocked Pistol” maximum readiness alert drill on September 27th and you have to wonder what all the fuss is about.

It would seem that our government is preparing for something.

As if all of this isn’t a big enough assault on “we the people” and what few rights we still have left, we are now threatened with losing our right to free speech on the internet through SOPA HR 3261 (October 26) and PIPAS.968 (May 12). These acts portend to be about copyright infringement and online piracy, but as with many bills, the devil is in the details. Underneath it all, the focus seems to be more about internet free speech infringement and website piracy than anything else.

It’s also extremely interesting to note that once the FEMA NCP/PAMSS continuity of government document was discovered, it was immediately pulled down from the internet. Curious indeed.

Regarding the new SIP program, a question that seems pertinent to ask is who gets to define “extremism” in America? Will the definition of extremism be limited to citizens lawfully expressing concern over government crimes of state, or will it extend to include Wall Street and Federal Reserve policies that endanger the economic state of the nation while a select few profit? Will the definition of violent extremism include an administration that conducts illegal invasions and unprovoked wars with sovereign nations, or will they once again target 9/11 truth members and Occupy protestors?

So, the big question is, what is going on? What is our government preparing for?

If you follow the criminal cabal that runs this country, you probably recall new world order poster boy ZbigniewBrzezinski’s forecast of civil unrest in early July. He predicted at the time, with a half smile and a glint in his eye, that it would begin with the lower middle class and those who perceived social injustice had befallen them.

When the economy has been purposefully imploded to bring about economic disparity, Brzezinski isn’t really prophesying as much as he is announcing what is sure to come.

Make no mistake about it folks, we’re purposely being steered on a pre-mapped course for destruction. It is the educated opinion of many that the ultra-rich powers that be have engineered every bit of this to drive us into theirnew world order. An orchestrated plan is unfolding for our demise and their benefit.

•        Economy is tanking badly, sliding into a complete collapse.

•        NDAA provides for indefinite detention and military law enforcement.

•        SOPA and PIPA threaten internet free speech.

•        White House initiates SIP to guard against “extremism.”

•        FEMA NCP plan outlines US continuity of government takeover.

If you’re not alarmed about all of the sudden new legislation in 2011 that threatens our freedom and our bill of rights, then you’re just not paying attention.

What is our government really planning for? This bookthat Obama carries is revealing.

Summation

It would appear that those ultra-wealthy powers that are hell-bent on destroying the United States in order to achieve their new world order, are doing so not under one act, but under many cleverly hidden pieces of legislation. The foundation for our republic and our democracy is being meticulously assaulted and torn away with cunning and deception. Carefully crafted legislation has undermined our Constitution and eroded our liberty, ironically under the guise of preserving both. A complicit media has been a key linchpin in the coup, but a servile populace, lulled to sleep by the media, has enabled its own peril.

The cabal that controls our politicians and our government has shifted their takeover plan into 5th gear. They are racing ahead at breakneck speed and appear to be in fear of losing the control they’ve worked to accrue. They have been moving quite fast and as a result have exposed themselves out of their fear. They see a Ron Paul campaign gaining steam, and that’s the last thing they want. Dr. Paul and Congressman Dennis Kucinich are both outspoken critics of the Federal Reserve and both want to have it turned over to the US Treasury. As Paul’s star begins to shine brighter on the campaign trail, this crooked cartel seems to be pulling out all the stops to try and save their patient 98 year plan for world domination. They know full well that a Paul presidency would be the end of their criminal regime.

NewsFocus has alerted key trustworthy Congressional members in regards to what is unfolding. It is hoped that the white hats of Washington can prevail on our behalf before it is too late. With the good Lord’s help, the criminal rat bastards of wealth that are behind this coup will be arrested for their high crimes and finally see prison time. It is our fervent hope and prayer that their long treasonous coup will finally fail. These imperial forces must be stopped at all cost for our republic to prevail. The situation is indeed that dire.

Not only did Angie Joseph uncover the FEMA COG plan, but she also uncovered a newly discovered Executive Order, National Defense Resources Preparedness, (NDRP) a plan which allows the government to take whatever it wants, personal and private property, as well as all domestic natural resources, during wartime, natural disaster… but also PEACETIME.

For what good reason do we need to restructure the United States under peacetime conditions? Think about that, because they’ve already designated wartime and natural disasters, so why the specific designation during “peacetime?”

This EO was released on March 17, the Friday evening, not only the best time to bury news, during the weekend news lull, but it was also St. Patrick’s Day, a national drinking holiday when many would be under the influence of alcohol, and more likely than not, hung-over the next day. The perfect window of opportunity to attempt to bury a story.

Whatever is going on, make no mistake about it, our government is using our tax money to prepare a defense and an offensive assault against “we the people.”

If indeed their plan should blow up on them, the world will have many brave people from the alternative media to thank, people like Joe and Angie Joseph and so many other good American patriots like them. It was the Joseph’s who uncovered the smoking gun FEMA NCP document and EO NDRP. They have given us all a fighting chance to stop this coup before it happens. Joe and this author co-host a two-hour program called Freedom Link Radio which broadcasts Tuesday and Thursday night from 9:00 to 11:00 and Sunday from 7:00 to 9:00pm on Orion Radio. Please check out Joe’s YouTube site at Freedom Link Radio. (There is more on this story at Alex Jones InfoWars website.)

This story will be updated as more information becomes public. You may have noticed by now that the one place you won’t find this story discussed, much like NDAA and SIP, is the mainstream media. As details present themselves, NewsFocus will post updates.

It’s Time to Strike At the Root

November 17th, 2014 by

 http://www.pakalertpress.com

 Yes, it’s time to strike at the Root Cause of all the Evil that has engulfed the United States of America Our Republic and most of the World.

11-17-2014 11-46-31 AM

The City of London Banksters have used their main Cutout the Federal Reserve System to engulf the whole World in a sinister Web-of-Debt of US Petro Dollars that has led to numerous continuing wars accompanied by mass-death, maimings and unimaginable human sufferings. This Web-of-Debt and its related pernicious usury now threatens the well-being and economic survival of the whole World including America and “We The People”. To give the reader and example of how vicious this asset stripping of the American people has been, the Official figures of the General Accounting Office which reports to Congress but has no prosecutorial authority reported in 1981 that the  top 1% controlled 20% of the US economy, and the lower 99% controlled 80% of the economy. In June of 2012 the GAO reported that the top 400 men (which is far less than 1% of the population now controlled 95% of the economy which they accomplished in 31 years). Most of these 400 were either Banksters or associated with them. For specific names of the top twelve known as the “Commission” refer to Stew Webb’s website. Thanks to the Internet, for the very first time Folks all over the World are now understanding how any Entity that controls the Manufacture and Distribution of Money is able to control the Top Policy-Makers in many nations and orchestrate History step by step. And if this Entity that has control over most of the World’s monetary production and distribution systems  is notably Evil, it can do maximum damage to humanity because it has the money and accrued power to appoint and coerce Top Policy-Makers to enact a notably Evil Agenda on the World. And if they have all the money they choose to issue at will, they can buy up and control the Major Mass Media and use it to dispense false narratives which effectively keep their crimes of State and incredible Evil hidden in plain sight. Now for the first time in the last hundred years, the Worldwide Internet is creating a worldwide Consciousness and complete awareness of the Evil Power that the Rothschild private Zionist Banksters from the City of London and their main Cutout the Federal Reserve System have wrought against the World.

11-17-2014 11-46-11 AM

Johannes Gutenberg, Inventor of the Gutenberg Press in 1439 which brought previously hidden knowledge to the public-at-large for the very first time. The Worldwide Internet is the New Gutenberg Press and spreads information at the speed of light rather than the speed of paper and ink. Thanks to the Worldwide Internet, the New Gutenberg Press, the Banksters Evil World Agenda has now been completely uncovered and is now in the Public Domain for all to study and know for the first time ever. And it turns out this has happened and the Banksters Evil World Agenda is to asset strip the fruits of the labors of most humans, create continual wars in order to foment mass their deaths by the millions accompanied by incredible human pain, loss and suffering. It is now known beyond any shadow of a reasonable doubt that this is all part of their Evil Agenda for the whole World. And what is the Evil Agenda of the Rothschild City of London World Zionist Banksters, Insiders call the New Crusaders for their creation of Israel as their slave state, main action agent used to further their agenda and as their personal Masonic haven. Without the support of naive Freemasons who want the fellowship, protection and jobs. And now these same Evil Banksters have deployed sophisticated means of Eugenics, soft-kill and hard kill against humanity designed to reduce the population of America and the World by 90%. And now it is certain beyond any shadow of a reasonable doubt, that this Entity which has been in control of the Money Production and Distribution of most of the World since the 1800’s has either failed miserably in acting responsibly, or been the most evil, sinister group of men that ever walked the face of the Earth. Major substantial evidence has been emerging for the last 100 years years now, especially the last ten that the latter is the case, that these Men who have been in control of most of the World’s production and distribution of FIAT money made from nothing have done so to gain more and more control over mankind so that they can attain their most Evil Agenda, an Agenda so Evil that it is unimaginable to most normal humans. It is very difficult for this kind of truth to fit into a normal person’s consciousness because it is so bizarre, so inextricably Evil that only inhuman monsters would ever hold such an Agenda of Evil.

11-17-2014 11-45-40 AM

These World Banksters aka “the Moneychangers” have gained this control by their prolific use of pernicious usury and their imposition of debt-slavery on almost the whole World. Rather than harness such incredible power over the People of the World for good, they have harnesses it and used it for grotesque, unimaginable Evil that is so deviant the average person just cannot fit it in to their head and has tended to reject such truth when Insiders have leaked it. They have created the money which was supposed to owned by the nations using it, illegally lent it to them, and then charged them onerous illegal interest for folks using what should have been their own money in the first place. Inside America these Rothschild controlled Banksters AKA the private Federal Reserve System, have hoodwinked the masses and had an easy time controlling Congress through an unlimited elastic checkbook filled with unlimited issuing of money with no real backing, that is no Gold, no Silver nothing but more Debt-notes and promises to pay with more debt-notes, each of which must be paid back with accrued pernicious interest. In the United States of America these crimes of the Banksters are easily discernible because they are crystal clear violations of the US Constitution, Common Law and now RICO law which provides some real teeth necessary to take down these greatest financial fraudsters in history. All we need is an honest US Department of Justice which has been compromised ever since 1913 when these City of London Banksters took over the American Monetary Production and distribution system and set up illegal practices including pernicious usury charged to We The People for using what was still actually our own money. All this is covered in the article PuppetGate from which the following descriptive drawing is taken from:

11-17-2014 11-45-17 AM

These City of London Banksters aka the Rothschild World Zionists have been a very crafty bunch.

11-17-2014 11-44-42 AM

Bernie Madoff, was a Director of the the Nasdaq Exchange. When arrested for his massive Ponzi scheme that was crashing, he confessed and claimed this is what all the Wall Street banks do and if it hadn’t been for the recession he wouldn’t have gotten caught. Nobody bailed out Madoff, but US Public bailed out the the Wall Street Banks twice with over 20 Trillion Dollars. US Dollars are no longer backed by Gold or Silver or anything but lots  more Debt-notes and “house-of-cards” derivative systems. The US Dollar is a Debt-Note which you promise to pay back in principal and accrued interest, yes the Federal Reserve System fraudulently issues our money to us and charges we must pay back the principal and the interest to them. This is the biggest fraud in history. The private Federal Reserve System started out in America using US Currency backed by Gold and Silver. In progressive steps they removed the backing and converted the US Money to strictly paper debt-notes backed by nothing but access to future tax collections from We The People which have not become incredibly limited compared to the phony kited-up so-called deficit. Technically, We The People cannot legally be charged to use our own money, for such to occur is massive Financial Fraud to which there is no statute of limitations. And if the Federal Reserve System issues Our Own Money then we can take it back anytime we want and seize all their accrued assets which were taken by fraud in the first place. The US Federal Reserve System is a private bank franchised from the City of London Rothschild Banksters.

11-17-2014 11-44-21 AM

And of course as many realize the Federal Reserve System, little more than the largest franchisee and Cutout of the City of London Private Rothschild Banksters, has issued so many debt-notes that the whole world is now engulfed in their Web-of-Debt which has actually diluted the value of the US Dollar (USD) to the point when all the USDs go into play they are essentially going to be worthless. The US Dollar loses Gold and Silver backing and becomes the US Petro Dollar and the World’s Reserve Currency, but that is all coming to a sudden catastrophic end.

11-17-2014 11-43-55 AM

At the time the USD was taken off of the Gold standard completely in 1971, President Nixon at the urging of Heinz Kissinger was able to negotiate that all Mideast oil Sales (and all world Oil sales) be made using the USD. This established the US Petro Dollar as the World’s exchange currency and then all the Banksters had to do to create their worldwide Web-of-Debt was to radically increase the amount of USD in circulation. Once the most of the World was caught up in this Web-of-Debt from their massive holdings of US Petro Dollars, many felt trapped. The Mideast nations had made an agreement to spend many of their massive oil earning buying American products, especially expensive defense related armaments. What they got in exchange for supporting the US Petro Dollar System was a promise to be protected along with Israel which is the personal action-agent nation state established by the Rothschild family for their own World Zionist haven and location of the World Ruler they have planned to appoint for centuries. Most of the World now wants out of the Rothschild/Federal Reserve System Web-of-Debt and the BRICS Development has arisen as a suitable counter-measure.

11-17-2014 11-43-29 AM

Now that so many nations realize that they have been caught up in this pernicious worldwide Web-of-Debt of the Rothschilds, they have have been working hard to find solutions to free themselves from this debt-slavery without completely crashing out their economies forever, which has been the Rothschild’s built in system protection. This rejection of the US Petro Dollar has already happened in some nations who have started the BRICS Development Bank. Unless Americans wake up and deliver justice to put the Federal Reserve System out of Business and fully prosecute its owners and chief officers the whole World will eventually turn against We The People and blame us for the massive Evil the Federal Reserve System has unleashed on the World as agents of the Rothschild City of London Banksters.

11-17-2014 11-43-07 AM

And when the financial bubble created by the Rothschild Banksters popped in Iceland in 2008 like it did in America,  the Icelandic Legislators prosecuted and jailed some of the top Banksters and granted mortgage forgiveness to almost every homeowner with a mortgage in Iceland because of fraudulent banking practices. This action to enforce the financial fraud and counterfeiting laws in Iceland were the opposite of what was done in America because the American US Department of Justice was completely compromised and corrupted with all honest Federal Prosecutors either driven out or dis-empowered by the Banksters and their Cutout and kingpins. And it was announced that even in England, home of the City of London Financial District where the Rothschild’s Banksters run their system out of, has now organized talks on how money is manufactured and distributed and if it is being done effectively. This is an historical first and shows that everybody around the whole World has had enough of the Rothschild’s unimaginable evil imposed on them. Some believe that a few of the more sensitive Bankers in the UK who are shareholders of the Bank of England are getting afraid of the coming pitchforks and are attempting to come clean and be part of an equitable solution. YouTube – Veterans Today - The solution that 137 nations have selected, many more coming all the time is to establish their own Development Bank called the BRICS Development Bank (which will eventually operated without the use of any Rothschild produced money especially the US Petro Dollar). Some of the nations which have joined the BRICS have already started direct trading of oil, natural gas and other commodities without the use of any Rothschild manufactured money or use of the US Petro Dollar. Numerous economists have claimed that this shift to BRICS will eventually doom the US Petro Dollar and probably bring the Rothschild Central FIAT Banks and Federal Reserve System into complete collapse. The purpose of the BRICS is to decouple now before this collapse takes them with it. Once this Rothschild Debt Bomb is detonated it could easily take America back into the stone age the collapse would be so total and so devastating. The clear solution is to strike at the Rothschild/Federal Reserve System root now and enforce ALL the valid laws and the Constitution of United States of America our Republic. 11-17-2014 11-42-41 AM “This is great fun shaking down the dumb American Sheeple for Bailouts to cover our Trillion Dollar gambling losses!” This means we need to reconstitute the US Department of Justice. The most corrupt Attorney general in the history of America has resigned but hasn’t left office yet. He should be hauled off in leg shackles and cuffs for his Treason, Sedition and RICO crimes running protection for the Banksters and all their PuppetMasters, like the two that tried to shake down Lee Wanta for 30 Billions Dollars and then conspired to murder him. There has been substantial evidence provided to Eric Holder of all the fraud of the Banksters related to the Mortgage Bubble and all he did was extract minimal “normal cost of doing business” proportionally small fines from these major Wall Street banks who defrauded millions of homeowners and sucked USG mortgage insurance programs dry. And now the evidence of his part in the criminal coverup is his new job at Morgan Banks for an annual salary of 77 million USD. This is a slap in every American’s face and must be mitigated by his prosecution and arrest under RICO and numerous other valid US Statutes. What exactly is the unimaginably Evil Agenda of the Rothschild Banksters and their Kingpins, Cutouts and PuppetMasters?

11-17-2014 11-42-20 AM

What is the incredible Evil that these Banksters have created and unleashed on the world to further their Agenda which is now known to be a completely Anti-human Agenda? Their Agenda is now known because Insiders have leaked accurate information that the Agenda of these World Banksters is to minister mass painful death and destruction, repeated major wars and now perpetual wars, and a program of sinister practices of programmed Eugenics, mass Mind-Control by ultra high-tech Psychotronics, accompanied by massive soft-kill and hard-kill programs. Many now wonder how such a few Men were able to get control over the most of the World’s Monetary Production and Distribution and have been able to hijack History. But an even more difficult matter to understand is why such men just happen to be the most Evil creatures that ever walked the face of the earth caring only for themselves and their anti-human mass Death and Human suffering Agenda.

11-17-2014 11-41-58 AM

If an entity or person is so evil they will pay to murder any dissenter or whistle-blower that tries to make the Public aware of their immense evil, these perps can amass tremendous wealth with which they can buy almost every single Politicians and Federal judge.

11-17-2014 11-41-32 AM

The answer that has emerged from insiders at the periphery of this group is that it is their absolute evil and complete criminal psychopathology that has enabled them to kill anyone who got in their way, if they couldn’t buy them off first. It is their absolute evil and complete lack of feeling for any other persons that has enabled them to be absolutely ruthless in their lust for more and more Gold, Silver, and precious metals and complete control over mankind and all his institutions of government. These are the most powerful, richest men in the World and undoubtedly by far the most evil that ever lived. It is their absolute Evil, lack of any workable conscience and complete lust for wealth and power that drives these men and makes it possible for them to create all the wars, mass painful deaths and maimings of war, starvations and endemic corruption that plagues most nations caught in their worldwide Web-of-Debt. Once the World’s top Military Commanders and soldiers who are not part of their Occult Circles understand this, they will of course began to make plans to strike at the root of all this Hell on Earth. Because the Rothschild run occult circles and this provides legions of those who protect them, many innocently naive about what these masonic organization really represent. Once the lower ranked Freemasons find out that the very top Freemason refer to them as the “unwashed”, and “porch monkeys” and claim that they are all told inaccuracies to protect the real Secrets of their Craft and that these very top Masonic leaders have a completely evil agenda to destroy almost all of the human race, they will abandon Freemasonry in droves. It has been known for years that Freemasonry has been used for cover and for a means to exert control by the Rothschilds and their Federal Reserve System. Once they realize they have been duped by those that intend to  mass murder them and their families and take everything they have worked for they will wake up and get free. What needs to be done for We The People to take back control over what should be their own Monetary Production and Distribution System? 1-Eric Holder needs to be indicted and arrested under RICO and hauled off in leg shackles and chains. He needs to be made an example of never to use the US Department of Justice to cover up the crimes against We The People by the Banksters.

11-17-2014 11-59-50 AM

The Rats Nest of corruption at US Department of Justice and the FBI needs to be completely cleaned out and numerous top officials and agents fired, many must be arrested under RICO for numerous prior crimes including coverups, cointelpro crimes, harassments and even murders of whistle-blowers, and some must be arrested for Treason for serving an foreign power such as Israel instead of honoring their Oath of Office to We The People and the Constitution. The PuppetMasters, that is folks like the Two that tried to shake Ambassador Lee Wanta down for 30 Billion Dollars must be arrested under Rico, some for Treason for serving an foreign power such as Israel instead of honoring their Oath of Office to We The People and the Constitution. If the US Department of Justice and the notably corrupt FBI cannot be cleaned up and immediately start doing their job, indicting Banksters for massive counterfeiting and financial fraud, then the US Military must step in because over 90% of Congress and five Supreme Court Judges have been bribed and/or completely compromised. Many in Congress need to be arrested under RICO and espionage laws for aiding foreign entities in their espionage against America (Rothschild Banksters and their federal reserve System). Do not expect Congress to do anything because they are almost completely bought, owned, bribed and compromised (with between 39 and 42% pedophiles according to prior investigations). Give the Banksters 48 hours to reports to their nearest US Magistrate to surrender after a quick indictment, otherwise go after them with the US Marshals, the Provost Marshals assisted by the First and Fifth US Armies and navy Seal Teams. Indict the Rothschilds and order them to return all the Gold, Silver and other assets they defrauded and stole from America. Given them 48 hours to make arrangements to surrender themselves and it. Then if they don’t comply, attack and subdue them with the full force of the US Military. Using RICO and espionage laws, arrest all members and assets of the Bush Crime Cabal (IZCS) and the International Zionist Crime Syndicate (IZCS) and all AIPAC officers and any other related groups members who have been buying, bribing, coercing and blackmailing Members of the US Congress and the USG and Federal Judges. Fire and arrest all Federal Judges who have been corrupted by either the BCC or the IZCS. Arrest the secret CIA which is the center of the Bush Crime Cabal and which has been running massive private armies and terrorists to start wars (as under ISI/ISIL cover in Iraq and Syria now) and which trafficks in massive amounts of illegal narcotics and illegal weapons. Outlaw any Dual, triple or multiple Citizenship and deport any who have served another nation first, no exceptions. Make the rest take a loyalty oath  to the US Constitution and our Republic the USA and forbid them from ever holding any American public office ever. Immediately declare the Federal Reserve System a RICO criminal enterprise specializing in financial fraud, theft of taxpayers assets, and is the largest Counterfeiting operation in History and the source of all wars and the mass suffering of many Americans, especially American Soldiers who they betrayed and used as mere cannon fodder. Their blood cries out from the ground for revenge and may it be granted asap. Seize and federalize the Federal Reserve System, make it an asset of the USA and claw back all it profits, assets and all assets of those owners who gained from it. If they are foreigners go after them where ever they are and bring them back one way or another. Immediately cancel all fraudulent elections such as any the Bush family won because of the Preston Bush (Scherf) immunity agreement and immediately rescind all laws which Congress passed or any court concocted which are clearly Unconstitutional and Illegal. Congress cannot pass a law to break another pre-existing valid law. Immediately rescind the Federal Income Tax which was never properly ratified and immediately re-install Glass-Stegall. there will be so much money, gold and assets clawed back from the Banksters that there will be plenty of money for a long time. Immediately enforce all Antitrust Laws and break up the Controlled Major Mass media comprised of six major international news corporations. Prosecute their key officers and owners under US espionage laws since they are either owned or controlled by agents of the Rothschilds.

11-17-2014 11-41-01 AM

Provide Ambassador Wanta his money and allow him to complete his Agenda to rebuild, revitalize and re-industrialize America and build his inter-coastal High Speed Maglev Railroad System which will produce an immediate 2 million good paying job opportunities. Offer him job as a top USG economic adviser. Set up a new Congress made up of We The People and restrict terms to one term only and set up rigid rules preventing revolving door jobs used for bribery. Until a new honest Congress can be elected, the US Military High Command will be responsible for running all governmental matters. Immediately prosecute all major Defense Contractor CEOs and Officers under RICO who have bribed Congress or offered extremely lucrative revolving door jobs promised to Members of Congress to induce cooperation.

11-17-2014 11-40-39 AM

Immediately cut off all US foreign aid and any US Dollars flowing to Israel which is a purely Freemasonic state set up by the Rothschilds as their own personal haven, main action-agent, and means to start wars and destabilize the Mideast and foment false-flag terror. Any American financial support of Israel is an international crime against the Palestinians to support the Israeli Apartheid and mass-murder/genocide against Palestinians. Europe and most of the World is now divesting and turning against Israel for this Apartheid, mass-murder and genocide against Palestinians and massive theft of their land in complete violation of numerous UN Rulings. And every day, more and more Americans are finding out Israel with the help of the BCC, IZCS and Traitors in the JCS, USAF, NORAD and the FCC attacked America on 9/11/01 by deploying “decommissioned” nukes stolen from the US nuclear arsenal. Set up Peoples Grand Juries all over the USA run by We The People and not sidetracked by compromised, crooked prosecutors. Make sure that every single Jury is instructed of their right to nullify any charges they think are wrong and any judge who ever tries to stop this right of any juror or refuses to inform them of jury nullification shall be immediately arrested for obstruction of justice. Note: Readers can create their own list, perhaps taking this list as a starter and adding to it. Hundreds of creative things can be done to “Strike at the Root” including sharing this story will all your family, your trusted friends and associates and numerous other constructive and legal actions such as mass campaigns with calls to the Whitehouse, Congress and the US Department of Justice. It’s a fact that the current Internet users that read article like this are the brightest and the best student of USG corruption in history. If the public wakes up in mass, a firestorm of dissent can be imposed on this criminal system and they can be brought down.

11-17-2014 11-40-14 AM

Conclusion:

Right now the USA is on the brink of total financial collapse and like most of the World has been caught up in a massive Web-of-Debt created by the US Congress and the elastic checkbook of phony FIAT dollars provided to them by  the Federal Reserve System, the greatest fraud in history. Unless this shell game is stopped soon this worldwide Debt-Bomb will detonate and could take the USA back to the stone-age. And America is now fighting a secret Civil War in Iraq and Syria against ISIS/ISIL, which is a BCC/IZCS controlled CIA paramilitary group being supplied by a criminal portion of the US Military. This secret army is army made up of American purchased Mercenaries with support from Israel, the Saudis and others and is called Al Qaeda 2 aka “Al CIA Duh” version 2 by insiders who know all the details. The rest of the World has already figured this out, that the Rothschild System and their chief Cutout the Federal reserve System has generated a phony money Debt-Bomb comprised of a worldwide Web-of-Debt and is now working to de-couple from the Rothschilds and their Federal Reserve System. The Banksters are attempting to counteract this by goading President Putin and Russia into a nuclear WW3 which would provide suitable cover and advance their plan to mass-murder up to 90% of the World Populace and aid their installation of their NWO Ruler in Jerusalem, which was the same dream of the Teutonic Zionists aka the First Crusaders. The Rothschilds are viewed as the New Crusaders by Intel Insiders for their obsession with acquiring control over Jerusalem and all of Palestine and the setting up of their own private nation state called Israel in 1947. If the Federal Reserve System and all the USG Officials and elected Officials it has corrupted are not stopped with many arrested under RICO and US espionage laws, the rest of the World has started de-coupling enough to probably survive any Debt-Bomb detonation. But unless these Banksters are stopped cold now, it is America and Americans that will suffer complete economic and financial collapse, accompanied by mass-starvation, internal civil war and mass death, all for nothing. For years starvation was the secret and official policy of the Banksters and their Kingpins, Cutouts and Top Policy-Makers. Now Population Reduction of Americans by 90% is the new goal of the Banksters.

Rather than allow our American families and children and countrymen to be destroyed as pawns in the Rothschild’s system of hatred for all Mankind, why not all work together to publicize what they have done to defraud America since 1913 and work together to route them out and bring them to justice? You can bet the rest of the World is going to do so some day, but why should be allow them to destroy America and Our people first?

11-17-2014 11-39-22 AM

And here is a suggestion for all Police Officers and their superiors. Be very careful to make sure you are known in your communities as being there to Protect and Serve the Community, rather than acting like Agents of a Criminal State or being there only to protect the Banksters and their criminal establishment. If your citizens see you as an Agent of the State, part of a militarized machine built up by the same traitors that started DHS who work for a foreign power, you and your officers will likely be attacked as agents of the State when and if TSHTF. If you act like you only work for DHS and are willing to oppress your citizenry with the enforcement of Unconstitutional laws and continue to misuse Swat Teams as many departments have, many will see you as the enemy and will act accordingly when TSHTF which in practical means many will target and fight your Officers who will be greatly outgunned and outnumbered, if everything collapses from the Debt Bomb becoming detonated. Start now and work hard to establish friendly, positive relationships with your citizens and let them know you work for them to Protect and Serve them, and then act like it. It’s time for We The People at all levels to rise up and support our new High Militarily Command and demand that they strike at the root of the greatest financial fraud in History that has been parasitizing the United States of America since 1913. yes, it time for the Rothschilds and their Federal reserve System to be taken down and for America to reabsorb all Federal reserve System functions back into our own Government, where it should have always remained in the first place as was the core belief of President Andrew Jackson.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Olddog does not agree with this commentary………………………..YET!

Not until millions more in America wake up by learning the true nature of our government and it’s history. To start the above list of actions will only result in civil war, or a fast defeat by the existing butchers in office, and I firmly believe in the benefits of a free society which would disappear in short order if we start something without more National support. Today, we still have millions and millions of cognitive dissonant slackers who are too lazy to read and learn, or who’s association with government benefits puts them firmly on the other side. The truth about America includes those who are dead-set against return to Constitutional law, as they simply have too much to lose. The bottom line here folks is to Never Start Something You Cannot Finish Unless It’s A Guaranteed Knockout Punch.  There is no clear majority of supporters yet. Keep Educating the People Until There is an Overwhelming Majority ready to die for their freedom.

Obama’s Blueprint for the Destruction of America The Decimation of Military Leadership

By Dave Hodges

Since even before Obama assumed the Presidency, his mere presence in the 2008 election was an affront to every member of Congress that has Presidential aspirations. The foreign born and disbarred Barack Obama, who never held a real job in his life, and did not even serve one full term as a senator, was a slap in the face of our political system and all of those with much more experience were passed over for a “community activist”.

 Obama Worse Than Woodrow Wilson

11-14-2014 8-58-16 AM

Obama and Wilson separated by a century but not by a desire to dismantle America.

As I have pointed out in Part Three of this series, Obama was not even vetted as a Presidential candidate by the FBI as required by law. Not since J. Edgar Hoover was complicit in the assassination of JFK, and we  have seen the FBI so manipulated and compromised in terms of validating Obama’s candidacy.

The day that Barack Hussein Obama took the oath of office, in January of 2009, was the day that the sun set on America. I never thought the country would ever see a President as corrupt, immoral and incompetent as Woodrow Wilson. After all,  in 1913, Wilson worked towards eliminating tariffs, the American government’s mainstay of economic support since the country’s inception. Wilson, on behalf the globalists, replaced tariffs with the corrupt and unconstitutional income tax and of course the Federal Reserve which has eroded the dollar to a net value of 3 cents of worth today. Wilson lied us into World War I, he jailed legitimate protesters and he helped make it possible to usher in the direct election of senators which handed over the Senate to the globalists. Wilson even tried to sacrifice the nation’s sovereignty by handing over our nation’s political authority to the League of Nations which was the globalist’s first attempt at world governance and he would have succeeded had it not been for the Ron Paul of his day, Henry Cabot Lodge. I never thought that there could be anybody worse for the country than Woodrow Wilson, until now. Obama is the most treasonous and destructive force to ever occupy the White House.

Just how destructive is Obama? Is he just incompetent? I have said it before and I will say it again, Obama, like Wilson, is following a systematic plan. Wilson’s agenda was relatively tame compared to Obama’s. It was Wilson’s mission to hand off the control of America to the banksters and economically enslave the nation in debt. Obama’s mission is much more nefarious as his objective is clearly based upon the goal of the total destruction of the United States as we have known it. The following paragraphs will provide a mere snapshot of how complete Obama’s destruction of America has been and make no mistake about it, Obama is not done with the American people. Before we move on to Obama’s blueprint to destroy America, please allow me to ask all of the Obama apologists who are defending this despot one question:

CAN YOU NAME JUST ONE THING THAT THIS PRESIDENT HAS DONE TO HELP THE AMERICAN PEOPLE?

10-15-2013 5-26-05 PM

   Because the scope of Obama’s attack upon America is complete and far-reaching, this part of this series is limited to Obama’s destruction of the American military as a prelude to invasion by Russia and possibly China.

The Destruction of the American Military

Obama is the Commander-in-Chief over a global military power that had no equal when he came into office. For Obama to destroy America, he must significantly weaken America.  Our main adversary, Russia, is merely a regional military power. If America is ever going to be conquered, the American military must be significantly weakened and this is precisely what Obama has done.

Destruction of Military Leadership

11-14-2014 9-01-09 AM

Obama has fired more commanders in a theater of war than any other president in American history.

 

If a foreign power were to assassinate 300 senior command officers, we would collectively recognize that we were in a state of war and the effectiveness of our military had been gravely diminished.    This is exactly what  Obama has done to the military as he has fired nearly 300 senior officers since moving  into the White House. The major reason that an officer gets fired in today’s military, is for the failure to enthusiastically embrace the subjugation of both the military and the country by the globalists. The military has fought back and Benghazi is an excellent case in point.

Benghazi

11-14-2014 9-02-25 AM

The late Ambassador Stevens

Most of the country does not know how close the country came to experiencing a military coup over the Benghazi affair in which Obama allowed, at minimum, Ambassador Chris Stevens to be murdered by the very al-Qaeda forces that he was supplying arms to on behalf of the CIA in Libya and Syria. Coincidentally, Stevens murder took place just two months before the election when word on his arms deals were being rumored. Of course, this is just a coincidence.

   There is now proof that Obama was warned in advance of the coming attack in which Stevens begged for more protection and his impassioned plea was denied by Clinton on behalf of Obama.

11-14-2014 9-04-00 AM

The former commander of AFRICOM who tried to rescue Chris Stevens.

Two of the top four military commanders in the Middle East, AFRICOM commander, General Hamm and Carrier Strike Force Three Commander, Admiral Gaouette tried to launch a mission to rescue Stevens. This was a coup attempt in response to the reign of terror being perpetrated by Obama against the viability of our military.

 11-14-2014 9-05-04 AM

Admiral Gaouette provided surveillance for General Hamm’s attempted rescue of the ambassador.

   The American people have failed to recognize the sacrifice made by these two leaders.  As Stevens was begging for help after the attack had begun, General Hamm had activated a special forces team within minutes of learning that the embassy, which was really a CIA safe house, was under attack. When General Hamm received his “stand down” orders from Obama, he made plans to go ahead with the rescue and was arrested within minutes of contravening the order by his second in command, General Rodriquez. Admiral Gaouette, the commander of Carrier Strike Group Three, was preparing to provide intelligence and  air cover for General Hamm’s rescue team in violation of his standing orders and he was promptly relieved of command for allegations of inappropriate leadership judgment.” Stevens and his security team were subsequently murdered.

   Do not make the mistake in minimizing the fall of Hamm and Gaouette. The positions held by Hamm and Gaouette are so powerful and so sensitive, that their replacements required approval from the Senate. Make no mistake about it, this was a military coup being conducted at the highest level of our combat forces.

   We can only imagine the headlines if Hamm and Gayoutte were successful in saving Stevens?  Can you imagine the reaction of America had it been revealed that an ambassador, on behalf of the administration, was running guns to terrorists and was financing the operation with child sex trafficking  and the selling of guns and drugs? Would you have liked to have had a front row seat at the press conference when Stevens told all under an agreement of immunity? One of two things would have happened: (1) A military coup would have taken over the White House; or (2) The House of Representatives would  have brought articles of impeachment against Obama and a trial would have been held in the Senate. The globalists, seeking to destroy America, through the destruction of the military, would have suffered a tremendous setback.

   Oh, and by the way, let’s not forget about the hacking of reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s computer: It’s not clear who hacked the CBS reporter’s computer as she investigated the Benghazi scandal, but the Obama administration has been very successful in covering its tracks on a number of scandalous fronts.

   Ultimately, why did Hamm and Gaoutte stand up to Obama?  They were acting in self-preservation mode. The entire military leadership in this country knows that it is under attack from this administration.

Following this watershed event, Obama stepped up his reign of terror against our military.

 

The Dismantling of our Nuclear Weapons Leadership

   In a series of unprecedented moves, the Obama administration fired several military commanders of the U.S. Nuclear Weapons system. The Air Force is reporting the firing is due to the current administrations “loss of trust”.  Yet, these officers have some of the highest clearances one can get, and have been in charge of the nation’s most sensitive nuclear arsenals and now they are being taken down on bogus allegations of using “fake” poker chips. We are sacrificing our most important command structure in the military over poker chips. In the context of Obama’s other actions against the military it is difficult to conclude that Obama is not deliberately weakening our ability to respond to a Russian nuclear attack. Intentional or not, that is precisely the net effect of these reckless actions against these leaders.

 

Russian Troops Training On Our Soil

11-14-2014 9-06-17 AM

Obama’s great giveaway

   In the ultimate act of betrayal, Obama gave away seven strategic Islands to Russia without explanation.

   I have previously and extensively covered the presence of Russian soldiers training on American soil.  When one considers the fact that Putin has twice threatened to nuke the United States in the past two years, one has to wonder about Obama’s motives with regard to Russian soldiers on American soil.

 

The Deliberate Scuttling of Military Discipline

   Women have served valiantl, but not in combat. Women are ill-equipped to be fighters because they lack the physical characteristics that provide for masculine strength. The presence of  homosexuals, who undermine 200 years of military discipline in this area, subvert unit cohesion at the squad and platoon level. We are not talking about IBM or your corner drug store, where one can argue preferences don’t matter. They matter greatly in the military. Is it not interesting that a soldier who happens to be a Christian runs the risk of being persecuted while a homosexual soldier is honored?  Also, far too many people who join the military for government benefits do not make for a quality fighting force. A weak military is a useless military, and Obama is keenly aware of this fact.

      The net effect of this attack upon the military has served to weaken it to the point to where we are vulnerable to attack from Russia and possibly China.

   In the next part of this series, I will summarize how Obama has attacked the American people through the deliberate degradation of our economy.

Former Presidents Warn About the Invisible Government Running the United States

November 11th, 2014 by

http://www.stage2omega.com/former-presidents-warn-about-

the-invisible-government-running-the-united-states/

 

( None of us can say that we have not been warned…  Seems like they’ve been shouting this to us for years and years…  /dt )

“Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” – George Santayana

Past presidents of the United States and other high profile political leaders have repeatedly issued warnings over the last 214 years that the U.S. government is under the control of an “invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.”

According to six of our former presidents, one vice-president, and a myriad of other high profile political leaders, an invisible government that is “incredibly evil in intent” has been in control of the U.S. government “ever since the days of Andrew Jackson” (since at least 1836). They “virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties… It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.”

As a result, “we have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized world—no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.”

The sources for the above quotes (and more) are listed below. All of the quotes in this article have been verified as authentic and have associated links to the source materials. Also included below are statements made by David Rockefeller, Sr, former director of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), and Federal Reserve Chairman’s Alan Greenp and Ben Bernanke that appear to confirm some of the warnings.

 

WARNINGS ABOUT THE INVISIBLE GOVERNMENT RUNNING THE U.S.

The warnings listed below, which appear in chronological order, began with our first president – George Washington. The last president to speak out was JFK, who was assassinated. Read what they and other political leaders have said about the invisible government.

George Washington wrote that the Illuminati want to separate the People from their Government

“It was not my intention to doubt that, the Doctrines of the Illuminati, and principles of Jacobinism had not spread in the United States. On the contrary, no one is more truly satisfied of this fact than I am. The idea that I meant to convey, was, that I did not believe that the Lodges of Free Masons in this Country had, as Societies, endeavoured to propagate the diabolical tenets of the first, or pernicious principles of the latter (if they are susceptible of seperation). That Individuals of them may… actually had a seperation [sic] of the People from their Government in view, is too evident to be questioned.”

– George Washington, 1st President of the United States (1789–1797), from a letter that Washington wrote on October 24, 1798, which can be found in the Library of Congress. For an analysis of Washington’s warning, see the article “ Library of Congress: George Washington Warns of Illuminati

“I sincerely believe, with you, that banking establishments are more dangerous than standingarmies.” —Thomas Jefferson, 3rd President of the United States (1801–1809) and principal author of the United States Declaration of Independence (1776), in a letter written to John Taylor on May 28, 1816

“A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves, consisting of many and various powerful interests, combined in one mass, and held together by the cohesive power of the vast surplus in banks.” – John C. Calhoun, Vice President (1825-1832) and U.S. Senator, from a speech given on May 27, 1836

Note that it appears that Washington’s and Jefferson’s concerns regarding bankers and separation of the people from the government was realized by 1836. This fact was confirmed in a letter written by FDR in 1933 (see below) in which he wrote that “a financial element in the large centers has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.”

Jackson was the seventh president of the United States (1829-1937). Calhoun served as Jackson’s vice-president from 1829-1832.

“Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of the day.”— Theodore Roosevelt, 26th President of the United States, Theodore Roosevelt, An Autobiography, 1913 (Appendix B)“

A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men… [W]e have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated, governments in the civilized world—no longer a government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and the duress of small groups of dominant men.” – Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States, The New Freedom, 1913

“Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men’s views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” – Woodrow Wilson, 28th President of the United States, The New Freedom, 1913

“The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation… The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties, … and control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country. They use the columns of these papers to club into submission or drive out of office public officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government. It operates under cover of a self-created screen [and] seizes our executive officers, legislative bodies, schools, courts, newspapers and every agency created for the public protection.” – New York City Mayor John F. Hylan, New York Times, March 26, 1922

“Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a Government board, has cheated the Government of the United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt… Mr. Chairman, when the Federal Reserve act was passed, the people of the United States did not perceive that a world system was being set up here… and thatthis country was to supply financial power to an international superstate — a superstate controlled by international bankers and international industrialists acting together to enslave the world for their own pleasure.” – Congressman Louis T. McFadden, from a speech delivered to the House of Representatives on June 10, 1932

“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know,that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.” — Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd President of the United States (1933–1945), in a letter to Colonel Edward M House dated November 21, 1933, as quoted in F.D.R.: His Personal Letters, 1928-1945.

“Today the path to total dictatorship in the U.S. can be laid by strictly legal means… We have a well-organized political-action group in this country, determined to destroy our Constitution and establish a one-party state… It operates secretly, silently, continuously to transform our Government… This ruthless power-seeking elite is a disease of our century… This group…is answerable neither to the President, the Congress, nor the courts. It is practically irremovable.” – Senator William Jenner, 1954 speech

“The individual is handicapped by coming face-to-face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst. It rejects even the assumption that human creatures could espouse a philosophy which must ultimately destroy all that is good and decent.” —J. Edgar Hoover, The Elks Magazine, 1956

The very word “secrecy” is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies , to secret oaths and to secret proceedings… Our way of life is under attack. Those who make themselves our enemy are advancing around the globe… no war ever posed a greater threat to our security. If you are awaiting a finding of “clear and present danger,” then I can only say that the danger has never been more clear and its presence has never been more imminent…

For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies primarily on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day.It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried, not headlined.

Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.” — John F Kennedy, 35th President of the United States, from a speech delivered to the American Newspaper Publishers Association on April 27, 1961 and known as the “Secret Society” speech (click here for full transcript and audio.“

THE ROCKEFELLERS AND THEIR ALLIES

Have, for at least fifty years, been carefully following a plan to use their economic power to gain political control of first America, and then the rest of the world. Do I mean conspiracy? Yes, I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent. ” Congressman Larry P. McDonald, November 1975, from the introduction to a book titled The Rockefeller File.

“There exists a shadowy government with its own Air Force, its own Navy, its own fundraising mechanism, and the ability to pursue its own ideas of national interest, free from all checks and balances, and free from the law itself.” – Daniel K. Inouye, US Senator from Hawaii, testimony at the Iran Contra Hearings, 1986

THE FEDERAL RESERVE

“A power has risen up in the government greater than the people themselves…” – John C. Calhoun

“… owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.” – Theodore Roosevelt

“… one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve Bank.“ – Louis T. McFadden

In an interview with Jim Lehrer that was aired on PBS’ News Hour on September 18, 2007 that you can watch on YouTube, formal Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenp said, essentially, that the Federal Reserve was above the law and that no agency of government can overrule their actions:

Jim Lehrer: “What is the proper relationship, what should be the proper relationship between a chairman of the Fed and a president of the United States?”

Alan Greenp:

“Well, first of all, the Federal Reserve is an independent agency, and that means, basically, that there is no other agency of government which can overrule actions that we take. So long as that is in place and there is no evidence that the administration or the Congress or anybody else is requesting that we do things other than what we think is the appropriate thing, then what the relationships are don’t frankly matter.”

The fact that the Fed is above the law was demonstrated by current Fed chairman, Ben Bernanke, during his appearance before Congress on March 4, 2009 ( as shown in this video ). Senator Bernie Sanders asked Bernanke about $2.2 trillion in American tax dollars that was lent out by Federal Reserve. Bernanke refused to provide an answer:

Senator Sanders:

“Will you tell the American people to whom you lent $2.2 trillion of their dollars? … Can you tell us who they are?”

Bernanke: “No”

DAVID ROCKEFELLER AND THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS (CFR)

“We have a well-organized political-action group in this country, determined to destroy our Constitution and establish a one-party state…” – William Jenner

“The Rockefellers and their allies have, for at least fifty years, been carefully following a plan to use their economic power to gain political control of first America, and then the rest of the world.” – Larry P. McDonald

In 1921 the stockholders of the Federal Reserve financed an organization called the “Council on Foreign Relations” (CFR). A full discussion on the CFR is beyond the scope of this article. Suffice it to say that the CFR likely plays a prominent role in the invisible government that we have been warned about.

 The CFR is alleged to be the arm of the Ruling Elite in the United States. Most influential politicians, academics and media personalities are members. The CFR uses its influence to push their New World Order agenda on the American people.

David Rockefeller, Sr is the current patriarch of the Rockefeller family. He is the only surviving grandchild of oil tycoon John D. Rockefeller, founder of Standard Oil. Rockefeller began a lifelong association with the CFR when he joined as a director in 1949.

In Rockefeller’s 2002 autobiography “Memoirs” he wrote:

“For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions.

Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as internationalists and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

James Warburg, son of CFR [Council on Foreign Relations] founder Paul Warburg, delivered blunt testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on February 17, 1950: “We shall have world government, whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest.”

COGNITIVE DISSONANCE

“The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst. It rejects even the assumption that human creatures could espouse a philosophy which must ultimately destroy all that is good and decent.” —J. Edgar Hoover

Because of a deep rooted beliefs that the U.S. government is “for the people” and the protector of the free world, many will reject the notion of an evil shadow government. When our beliefs are challenged or when two beliefs are inconsistent, cognitive dissonance is created. It’s human nature to try to hold our beliefs in harmony with our world view and avoid disharmony (or dissonance).

For those of you who having difficulty believing the information presented in this article, I fully understand. For the first 57 years of my life, I would not have believed in the possibility that a shadow government could exist. Three years ago my world view changed. While on vacation in Mount Shasta, I came across a book titled “Global Conspiracy” that seemed strangely out of place in a metaphysical book store. I had never heard of the author before – some guy named David Icke. I scanned through the book and frankly didn’t believe 99% of what I read. But, I saw one thing that caught my attention in that I knew that I could easily verify Icke’s assertion. I did my own research and turned out what Icke had stated was true. That led me down a rabbit hole and many, many hundreds of hours of independent research.

So, keep an open mind, do your own research, and use discernment. Beware that there is a ton of disinformation on the internet, much of which is intentionally placed to confuse the public. At a CFR meeting on geoengineering (see the article “ Millions Spent to Confuse Public About Geoengineering“), M. Granger Morgan stated (it’s captured on video for you to see and hear for yourself):

“First of all, of course, there is a lot of money getting spent to make sure that a very substantial portion of the public stays totally confused about this. And, I mean, it’s been really quite pernicious. But there’s been literally tens of millions of dollars spent on every little thing that comes along that might, you know, relate to some uncertainty.”

WHAT CAN WE DO?

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead

In addition to doing your own research, please spread the word, and get involved. The Thrive Solutions Hub is an excellent place to join with others who are taking positive action steps expose corruption and to create a world in which we can all thrive. You can watch the full Thrive movie on YouTube here.

By now we should have returned to a Republic; alas the people love bread and circuses more than freedom. Their brain is something out of sight and out of mind. Therefore, study your ass off if you want to be free again, and see if you can find a gallon of courage somewhere. We are in the final count-down.

EXCLUSIVE Allah in the Public School Classroom. Public School Parents Frantic As Allah and Muhammad Replace Secular Studies

November 1st, 2014 by

http://freedomoutpost.com/2014/10/exclusive-allah-public-school-classroom-public-

school-parents-frantic-allah-muhammad-replace-secular-studies/

  By Pamela Geller In my book Stop the Islamization of America, I describe and warn of the Islamization of the curriculum and the school room. The book was a primer on how to fight the encroaching Islamic supremacism and sharia. The past few days, I have published news stories here and here of parent protest to Islamic dawah in the classroom.

11-1-2014 7-49-44 AM

I have been fielding calls from distraught parents all week — two moms today — reeling from the proselytizing for Islam in their children’s “Social Studies” or “World History” classes. They are not teaching the children “world history,” which would include the 1,400 year history of jihadi wars, land appropriations, cultural annihilations, and enslavements, not to mention the extermination of the entire Jewish Banu Qurayza tribe of Arabia. Instead, children are forced to recite the shahada (it’s what one says in order to convert to Islam). Instead, they are forced to learn the five pillars of Islam. Department of Education, Pearson, the Gates Foundation, publishing companies, and the testing companies have been hijacked by Islamic supremacists and have hijacked our public school curriculums and textbooks (i.e., Common Core). Jesus was mentioned once as a Jewish prophet in the first chapter and the second chapter briefly discussed the division within the Christian Church.  Chapter three is dedicated completely to Islam and the story of Muhammad, with multiple quotes from the Qur’an throughout the chapter. The book even goes on to say that “. . .Muhammad revealed the purest version of God’s truth” and that Muhammad is the final prophet of God’s truth with the most complete version of that truth.  This is a violation of the establishment clause, and maybe a mass class action suit should be filed. This is something we are looking at. One mom whom I spoke to earlier told me that her 12-year-old son came home from school yesterday “depressed” and “sick.” Coming from a “good Christian home,” he was confused and “hurt” that he had to write and say the Muslim declaration of faith (the shahada) and write it repeatedly. The mother was beside herself. When Muslims force Christians to convert, they are forced to say the shahada (the Muslim declaration of faith). The Arabic writing on the black flag of jihad (also known as the al Qaeda flag or ISIS flag) is the shahada. This chant of supremacism and imperialism is being forced on American school kids.

Another mom told me that one of her son’s friends who was raised as an atheist said that, after these lessons, she began to think differently. So now the schools are converting children to Islam.

One parent on Facebook wrote, “Parents be concerned and check your child’s assignments. My son came to me last night to get help with his Social Sciences assignment about the one God (Allah) and the Five Pillars of Islam. As you can imagine, we were completely shocked. Now to clarify, I have no problem with my child learning about the various cultures around the world and the religions they practice, but for a school to emphasize and actually teach a single religion to children while discouraging the others is beyond deplorable. If you are worried that your child may be forced to endure these teaching please see the ACLU website. By law children are allowed to be excused from any lessons or discussions they object to on religious grounds without consequence. We will be opting out of this one. The ACLU ain’t going to help you, lady. They are part of the problem. EXCLUSIVE: Here is what happened to one family. The mother writes:

11-1-2014 7-47-52 AM

I want to share my story with you and I hope that I can be a shining light of hope. About a month ago my daughter asked for my help with her homework.  She is in 7th grade and usually does not ask me for help. She gave me her vocabulary words for Social Studies and simply asked me to type it for her. I started typing the first few words, and then I came to Qur’an, Mosque, Alms, Caliph, Jihad, Sunnis, Shiites. I instantly became alarmed and asked to see her Social Studies book. My husband and I spent the next 3 hours reading through her book and I have to tell you that my life changed on that day. I kept my daughter home from school for the next two days and met with the principal. I attended my daughter’s class when she went back to school. Her assignments continued; draw detailed pictures of the 5 pillars of Islam and write a word collage of all that is good with Islam. We met with the teacher and principal together and questioned the curriculum. We received the party line responses of “state standards” and “Common Core” for every question we had.  I was concerned with the nature of the material that was being taught in the classroom, and whether it was being presented in a truthful manner and that all aspects were told.  This was not happening.  Simply from viewing the Table of Contents one can see that Islam is the dominant religious focus throughout the book.  I was amazed upon further review of the book how they were able to slip Muslims into China, and how Spain is only referred to as Muslim Spain.  The chapter on West African Civilization contains The Growth of Islam in West Africa.  The teacher explained to me that they had discussed Christianity in the first two chapters, but when I reviewed them personally, I found that Jesus was mentioned once as a Jewish prophet in the first chapter and the second chapter briefly discussed the division within the Christian Church.  Chapter three is dedicated completely to Islam and the story of Muhammad, with multiple quotes from the Qur’an throughout the chapter. The book even goes on to say that “. . .Muhammad revealed the purest version of God’s truth” and that Muhammad is the final prophet of God’s truth with the most complete version of that truth.  As I mentioned, my life changed that day. That was October 6, 2014. I began writing letters to the ACLU, all of my state and US legislators, journalists, anyone who would listen to me. I contacted our school board and I started daily postings on Facebook about what was happening. Through Facebook I connected with a local parent who in turn connected me to a Trustee on our School Board. I met with that Trustee last night. He is appointing me to our Material Review Committee for our school district which oversees 50,000 students. He is also putting the book in question, Prentice Hall’s Medieval and Early Modern Times published by Pearson Publishing, on the agenda to be reviewed. Through my daily research I came to the Center for Public Education’s website at www.centerforpubliceducation.com and found the following statement: The Constitution uses 16 words—known as the “religion clauses”—to create rules about how faith and government interact. One clause gives citizens the right to freely exercise religious convictions; the other prohibits government (including taxpayer-funded public schools) from establishing religion, meaning granting favorable treatment. I believe that the book in my daughter’s classroom is in direct violation to this clause as described above, and thus violates our First Amendment rights.  This is the argument that I have presented to the ACLU, however, I have not had a response from them to date. The book in question was adopted to our district in 2007, they only keep books for about 7 years so the timing will be perfect to have it removed. I am now on the Material Review Committee and will have a direct influence on the next book that is chosen to replace it. Beyond having this book removed from my children’s school district I hope to have this book removed from the California Department of Education’s list of approved materials. I will then seek to remove any other books of this bias nature from our school system in California and across the nation.  By bias I specifically mean that this book provides favorable treatment to the Islamic faith and does not provide the same treatment to Christianity or Judaism. Over the last few weeks I have learned that this is a national issue of indoctrination of our children and I want to be able to shed light on this issue nationally and locally. We need to;

  1. Become aware and change the narrative in our schools
  2. Become involved in our children’s education and understand exactly what is being taught to them and why.
  3. Question curriculum when we feel that it is not presented in an unbiased manner.

I am just one parent in one school district in America, but if we each begin to stand up in our communities and take action to be the agents of change we will be able to make a collective difference in our country. I am in the process of developing a web page at www.parentsunitedforamerica.com, and I have created a Facebook page under Parents United For America.  I am hoping that we can connect and work towards the change we wish to see.  Please join me, and together we will be the shining hope of light that America needs to restore our values and our beliefs in our education system.

Technocracy One More Elite Hustle

October 28th, 2014 by

http://www.thedailybell.com/news-analysis/35769/Technocracy-One-More-Elite-Hustle/

 

By Staff News & Analysis – October 28, 2014

 

The Fed has its critics, of course, and its unique constitutional dispensation is challenged from time to time, but its political independence is mostly seen as a good thing. Yet the idea of replicating that idea, and creating other permanent, semi-independent policy-making agencies, almost never comes up. There’s a reason for that. It’s hard to imagine that an independent fiscal agency, for instance, would ever be allowed to do for U.S. budget policy what the Fed does for interest rates. Decisions about taxes and spending – about who gets what and who pays – are too contentious, too close to the core of democratic politics. Congress will never permanently delegate them the way it’s delegated monetary policy. However, a bit more power-sharing might be possible, and that would be better than nothing. – Bloomberg

Dominant Social Theme: Technocracy is the hope of the future.

Free-Market Analysis: Call technocracy, the idea of a select group of private individuals running public affairs privately, the meme that will never die.

Now again, almost randomly, comes a call for action.

This one is uttered by someone called Clive Crook who has attended all the right colleges, worked for all the right internationalist publications and has decided absurdly that the example of the “independent” Federal Reserve ought to be extended to various failing government agencies.

We can see from the above excerpt that Mr. Cook is well aware that his affection for technocracy will not translate into reality, not fully anyway. But, he suggests, “a bit more power sharing might be possible.” In this case, he means between private implementation of public policy and government implementation.

Before going further, let’s look at the modern history of technocracy. We write “modern” because this idea goes back all the way to Plato and his idea of “philosopher kings.” Plato believed that philosophers, whom he differentiated from ordinary people because of their access to “wisdom,” were most fit to rule society.

By making this distinction, anointing some as better able to rule and wield power than others, Plato assured himself literary immortality. This is because every man or woman who has risen to a seat of great power has wished to use Plato’s formulation to justify their ascension.

At the same time, Plato’s formulation has created problems. From Wikipedia:

Karl Popper blamed Plato for the rise of totalitarianism in the 20th century, seeing Plato’s philosopher kings, with their dreams of ‘social engineering’ and ‘idealism’, as leading directly to Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler (via Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and Karl Marx).

In addition, Ayatollah Khomeini is said to have been inspired by the Platonic vision of the philosopher king while in Qum in the 1920s when he became interested in Islamic mysticism and Plato’s Republic. As such, it has been speculated that he was inspired by Plato’s philosopher king, and subsequently based elements of his Islamic Republic on it.

Platonism has a much more modern incarnation that began in the 1930s with Marion King Hubbert, a geoscientist who worked for Shell. He is perhaps most well known for the “Hubbert peak theory” that predicts humanity will eventually run out of oil, or at least find the economics so unappealing that using oil will become prohibitive.

In order to combat the disasters predicted by his theories, Hubbert introduced the idea of “technocracy” – the rule by a wise few scientists who are skilled and knowledgeable in their fields.

Here’s how Wikipedia describes it:

The technocracy movement is a social movement which arose in the early 20th century. Technocracy was popular in the United States and Canada for a brief period in the early 1930s, before it was overshadowed by other proposals for dealing with the crisis of the Great Depression. The technocrats proposed replacing politicians and businesspeople with scientists and engineers who had the technical expertise to manage the economy.

The movement was committed to abstaining from all revolutionary and political activities. The movement gained strength in 1930s but in 1940, due to an alleged initial opposition to the Second World War, was banned in Canada. The ban was lifted in 1943 when it was apparent that ‘Technocracy Inc. was committed to the war effort, proposing a program of total conscription.’ The movement continued to expand during the remainder of the war and new sections were formed in Ontario and the Maritime Provinces.

In the post-war years, perhaps due to continued prosperity, membership and interest in Technocracy decreased. Though now relatively insignificant the Technocracy movement alone among the collection of radical movements of the 1930s survives into the present day, publishing a newsletter, maintaining a website, and holding member meetings.

Wikipedia downplays the popularity of technocracy. It is among the most popular and influential memes that the power elite has produced in the past century. We have, of course, an example of technocracy in the Federal Reserve and its management by good, gray men.

But the affection for technocracy has infected the entire gamut of modern, mainstream-media punditry, and this is no new phenomenon. In fact, notably, when Bill Clinton was running for president, one of his more praiseworthy characteristics was seen to be his “wonkery” – his ability to immerse himself in the details of various federal government programs to figure out how to improve them.

“Wonkery” is praiseworthy because it implies that the individual in question understands the details of fedgov programs and is able to improve upon them through rigorous analysis and strategic regulatory improvements.

Crook is all for this sort of advancement. He apparently believes in the reign of philosopher kings and wants to accommodate it where possible. Here’s more:

In recent years, many countries have created independent or semi-independent “fiscal councils” with open-ended reporting, oversight and advisory roles. Economists at the International Monetary Fund recently surveyed these efforts.

The U.S. Congressional Budget Office was one of the fiscal councils they reviewed. The CBO is an interesting case. Though very different from the Fed, it’s another remarkable institution. It’s much the best staffed and most generously financed of all the fiscal councils; and its reputation for probity and analytical excellence is unsurpassed.

Yet, as a creature of Congress designed to serve the interests of Congress, its powers are minimal. It estimates the budgetary cost of legislative proposals, and it reviews the fiscal outlook. But its work is strictly bounded (by rules which Congress has become adept at gaming). It doesn’t give advice, much less make policy. Perhaps this constraint is the price of independence — but it would be good to see the limits tested.

… Giving technocrats more power is undemocratic, you say? True. That’s the point. It isn’t a transformative proposal, but a little more authoritative non-aligned expertise and a little less brainless politicking really couldn’t hurt.

The operative phrase in the above paragraph is “a little more authoritative non-aligned expertise … couldn’t hurt.” Really?

Plato, Hubbert and other proponents of technocracy base their support on the idea that the wise man has access to innate understandings about the future that others don’t possess. Of course, a quick look at history shows that this isn’t so. And Austrian, free-market economics contradicts this sort of perspective as well.

One may be able to perceive trends generally when it comes to economic or sociopolitical predictions, but trying to create detailed models is another thing entirely. Over and over again, detailed models, even ones that only extend a few weeks or months, are proven to be unreliable.

In the private sector, companies produce reams of such predictive analyses, but corporate execs are often wise enough not to trust such models and treat them with the skepticism they deserve.

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for government officials and for government/ technocrats who create similar models that are used to distribute millions and even billions of dollars.

The technocracy meme is an invidious and expansive one because it buttresses aggressive internationalism. When one inquires how a truly global economy with one monetary system and one legislature is going to operate successfully on behalf of 7-10 billion people, the answer is inevitably a technocratic one.

Selfless “experts” will administer a global state. These experts will be educated at the best schools and have the most impressive degrees. They will have written erudite books and sat on high-level corporate and NGO boards.

Unfortunately, there are no such things as “experts.” No man can foresee the future, not even Hubbert who was very evidently wrong about peak oil – as thanks to fracking the world seems to be virtually swimming in the stuff.

Still, the technocracy meme will persist despite its obvious falsity. It provides too much in the way of justification for further internationalist expansion.

The regulatory state, despite its failures, continues to be the modern paradigm. Technocrats are the anointed ones that will plumb the depths of this state and maneuver its vast bulk.

There is no other way forward, no other methodology that justifies leaving power in the hands of a few to be wielded on behalf of the many.

There is no room for Austrian human action in such a model, which is one reason why Austrian economics is seen as such a threat by those of the globalist persuasion. Beyond that, any commonsensical discussion of regulation or technocracy will almost immediately yield up fundamental contradictions.

There really is no way to justify these memes or their implementations. But since they are so important to erection of an ever-expanding state they will continue to be popularized and promoted.

For this reason we are not surprised to see a major media force like Bloomberg presenting the meme. In fact, if repetition could create competency, then technocrats would be competent indeed. But they are not.

Conclusion

Insisting that certain philosopher kings can foretell the future is not the same as providing evidence. Unfortunately, the technocratic meme is just one more elite hustle.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Technocracy is just one more example of the rich and strong taking advantage of lesser people which history proves will never end, as their egotistical infatuation with their advanced intelligence is a driving force they cannot control. One would think that just by being observant of human nature they would be more inclined to accept we lesser mortals as a necessary component of diversity. However, that will never happen, and we lesser souls must keep them in their place or submit to absolute totalitarianism. No one with an inch between their ears would want to be totally dominated in every facet of their lives, and that is exactly what they are seeking. All this will lead to exterminating the dull and ignorant to preserve natural resources for their future prodigy.

Are We Ready for the Fall of Baghdad?

October 26th, 2014 by

http://www.thedailybell.com/editorials/35748/Ron-Holland-Are-We-Ready-for-the-Fall-of-Baghdad/

10-26-2014 7-26-32 AMBy Ron Holland

I recently was in Vietnam and spent some time in prosperous, capitalist Saigon, now called Ho Chi Minh City, and toured the American War Museum. I believe there are a number of parallels between the Vietnam and Iraq War and that history could repeat itself now in Baghdad. Who can forget the former Vietnamese supporters of America being left behind as the last helicopter left the roof of the US embassy?

Today, America still has the strongest military in the world but our manufacturing capacity and financial situation shows the US is on a downhill slide like earlier over-extended and bankrupt empires throughout world history.

We’ve already watched the frightening incompetence of the Obama Administration and the CDC in dealing with the Ebola virus. One would have to be blind not to see the petrodollar deathwatch as Russia, China and the BRIC countries build new trading alternatives to avoid using the dollar world reserve currency when trading energy and other financial dealings.

This is simple payback for Washington’s threats, banking fines and penalties against institutions and nations de jure that fail to march to the US tune of dictating trade and financial arrangements. The world is now ganging up on the United States because Washington has terrorized smaller nations around the world for decades as the big bully on the block.

We’ve had the misfortune of watching ISIS – originally funded and equipped by the US, Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf allies, as was Bin Laden – turn on their benefactors out to destroy Assad in Syria because of a pipeline deal and take over much of Iraq. My point is just as the pro-US South Vietnamese government could not survive without major US forces, neither will the present government in Baghdad. So what could happen to the massive, fortified Baghdad US Embassy in the Green Zone that rivals the Vatican in size? What are the possible military objectives of the Islamic State fighters (ISIS) in regard to the Iraqi capitol?

While the US media elites and the Air Force concentrates on a meaningless ISIS backwater diversionary attack on Kobane on the northern Syrian border with Turkey, their real target is Baghdad and this will likely become very apparent between now and the end of the year. Our military experts confidently state that ISIS does not have enough troops to take and hold Baghdad, a city of 7 to 9 million people. They are correct unless ISIS wants to destroy its forces like the German Wehrmacht squandered its strength fighting in Leningrad or Stalingrad.

But they can win major PR victories without getting bogged down in street-to-street fighting in the Shiite areas in the north and east. Baghdad has been a city in transition since the Bush invasion created a power vacuum and endless violence in the capitol. Historically full of neighborhoods with a mix of Sunni and Shia, the population division is now almost complete with most Shia concentrated in the north and east of the river and most Sunni in the area stretching from the airport to the American Green Zone. Here lies the problem: The western Sunni neighborhoods are perfect cover for the Islamic fighters to slowly infiltrate the area around the Green Zone and embassy compound and mix in with the population. After all, this is a Sunni insurrection against the majority Shia government.

Hence the ISIS advance in Anbar province to just outside the airport is a direct threat to the Green Zone because their forces will be moving through predominantly Sunni neighborhoods all the way east to the American embassy. They could but surprisingly have not attempted to shut down the airport and here is where the situation gets interesting. Late this week, the Iraq army leadership basically said that unless US forces arrive to help them defend the western approaches to the city, they will throw down their weapons and go home – and I believe they will.

The scenario I see is the first attack will likely be against the most heavily defended target, the US embassy and the Green Zone. The ISIS fighters are not strong enough to take the heavily fortified green zone by direct assault and so it will probably fail.

The US will then attempt to fly in reinforcements to the airport and this will be when ISIS will start mortar fire and attempt to close the Baghdad airport as well as attack any convoys through the Sunni neighborhoods heading to the Green Zone. They will likely be able to shut down the airport, thus forcing reinforcements and embassy staff leaving to use helicopters for transportation to airfields further south in Iraq or maybe even to Kuwait. Closing the airport will be a major public relations victory for ISIS.

A siege of the Green Zone and American embassy will likely then take place and the US will be forced to destroy by air the Sunni neighborhoods surrounding the area from the zone west to the airport at a minimum resulting in heavy Sunni civilian causalities. Once again, more bad PR for the United States.

Eventually, the US may well be forced to close the embassy and withdraw from the Green Zone, which will result in videos that remind the American public of the Saigon collapse back on April 30, 1975. This would be a tremendous PR victory for the extremists, resulting in more fighter recruits.

Finally, if the US is forced to withdraw from their fortified embassy then, of course, ISIS will take over America’s largest embassy in the world. Note, this embassy compound can hold 35,000 American personnel and is basically a small city-state within Baghdad that is massively defended.

This, again, is another victory for ISIS. Finally, the US may well decide to destroy the entire Green Zone and embassy by air to prevent its occupation by the terrorists. This will provide yet more videos – the US destroying its biggest embassy in addition to our earlier air attacks directed at our own tanks and trucks taken by ISIS troops when the Iraq army ran away from Mosul and northern Iraq.

Although the Bush invasion of Iraq has been a costly tragic mistake for all involved, we would do well to never again put US troops back on the ground there. Otherwise, our other economic and financial weaknesses and major threats to our national interests, including the end of the dollar as the world reserve currency, could happen far sooner when combined with a major military defeat and loss of prestige that does not have to take place.

I will be writing more about what happens on the home front to private wealth, prosperity and property when empires collapse and why American investors should look now at possible safe haven opportunities and global investment alternatives to survive and prosper in the future. Remember, all empires die but – although seldom covered in the history books – it is never a pleasant experience for the citizenry.
