“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.
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.

“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
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.”

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.
Check Out The Reading Material of Obama – The Post American World?
What is our government really planning for? This bookthat Obama carries is revealing.
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.

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

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
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?
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
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.
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.
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.
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
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.

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

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.
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:
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;
- Become aware and change the narrative in our schools
- Become involved in our children’s education and understand exactly what is being taught to them and why.
- 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. VOCABULARY WORDS

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.
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.
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.

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.

By Anthony Martin
Within the last two weeks several tips came into the Examiner indicating pending dangers to certain groups of citizens. These tips led to a source who, speaking on condition of anonymity, alleges that just after the election a major initiative will be launched against citizens whose values are diametrically opposite to that of Barack Obama and the current Washington elitist leadership in Congress. According to the source, the Department of Homeland Security(DHS) will greatly intensify its attacks on freedom oriented citizens.
The source indicated that the those within DHS and the rest of the Obama Administration who support a massive crackdown on the liberties of citizens are ready to make a dramatic move once the midterm elections in November are over. These particular government employees, particularly those at the top levels, believe that Christians, Tea Party participants, and those who support the Constitution and oppose Obama and his “progressive” agenda are dangerous and need to be subjected to a purge.
This purge would be in the form of prosecution through the courts. The objective would be to silence their voices and remove them from society by tossing them into prison where they could spend years and a ton of money attempting to get out of jail and defend their reputations. The “progressives” in the administration and Congress believe that the lame duck period just after the November midterm elections is the time to move swiftly to get these things done. Obama doesn’t have to face reelection. And if the internal polling being done by both Democrats and Republicans is true, the Democrats will be forced into minority status in the Senate in addition to the House. Thus, in the two months after the election prior to the time when the new Congress is sworn in in January of 2015, a golden opportunity exists for the “progressive” elitist tyrants to make their move. After all, they have nothing to lose.
Although the tip concerning this information came within the last two weeks, the publication of it was on hold until more verification could be received. That verification came today in an article written by colleague David Codrea, who is the National Gun Rights Examiner.
Shortly after the election of Barack Obama, it became all too clear that DHS intended to lay the foundation for a massive purge of Christians and liberty oriented citizens. Internal memos were discovered that referred to these citizens as “potential homegrown terrorists.” The objective was to crank up the propaganda machine in an effort to malign, demonize, and ruin the reputations of otherwise good citizens so that eventually it would be easier to persecute and prosecute them without running too far afield of public opinion.
In 2012 the Examiner received at least one document from DHS that listed the various categories of citizens that would be deemed as “potential homegrown terrorists.” This document is one of the most important, but as you will see, it has been revised to include an apologetic to counteract the heavy criticism the report received. DHS used this report to compile its policy on “potential homegrown terrorists.”
But not once was Islamic extremists mentioned. Those whom DHS mentioned specifically is very telling — Ron Paul supporters, gun owners and gun rights activists, those who promote the Constitution as the final rule of law, U.S. war veterans returning home from overseas, those who support the right of Israel to exist, evangelical Christians and others who are pro-life and who believe the Bible and take it seriously, Tea Party activists, conservative voters who take to the streets to march or to demonstrate in opposition to high taxes, runaway government spending, Obamacare, and other programs of the “progressives” in the current administration. Michelle Malkin provided this report on the issue at the time.
So controversial were these DHS pronouncements that angry citizens began calling their elected representatives. When it became clear that this mindset at DHS may become a political liability for Democrats seeking election or reelection, the agency backed off its public statements concerning “potential homegrown terrorists.” It did not help matters for the elitists that a series of high profile terrorist actions, conducted by Islamic extremists, made the news and only confirmed in the minds of most Americans that DHS had its eye on all of the wrong people. While they were watching us “conservative Christians clinging to our guns and Bibles,” the Islamo-fascists were busy at work behind the scenes planning a resurgence. And now, at least half of what our men and women in the military fought for, and gave their lives for, have fallen back into the hands of Islamic extremists who behead their opposition. Not only does this denote a failed Obama foreign policy but it clearly demonstrates that the current administration does not care about the spread of extremist Islam. They had rather go after ordinary citizens who disagree with their warped view of the world.
Against that backdrop, David Codrea reports that DHS issued a report Friday that once again places the spotlight on an odd group of people to be tracking — ordinary U.S. citizens who once again are being tarred and feathered verbally as “potential homegrown terrorists.” This time, however, their specific target is U.S. gun owners, 99 percent of whom never use their firearms to commit crimes.
DHS tipped its hand when it cited as a basis for its report the discredited and dangerous Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which never saw a gun owner it did not hate nor a conservative Christian it did not view as deranged. This organization is a million times worse than anything Joe McCarthy did in the Senate in the 1950s when he warned that Communists had infiltrated the U.S. government. They had. And his charges were confirmed when the old KGB was forced to open its books after the demise of the old Soviet Union, and the new Russian president Boris Yeltsin ordered that those secret records be made public. It turns out that McCarthy was 95 percent correct. But the SPLC can claim no such accuracy. They have maligned and falsely charged a plethora of individuals as “racists” or “anti-government extremists” with absolutely no basis upon which to issue such a charge.
Codrea notes that one of the incidents that SPLC is now using to malign gun owners is the standoff at the Bundy Ranch. Not only did SPLC get many of its facts wrong but it claims that supporters of Bundy prove that they are dangerous homegrown extremists who wish to attack the government. Many gun owners went to the Bundy Ranch to provide protection for Bundy as dozens of government snipers took aim at the Bundy family, ready to blow them all away. Thus, they were there to protect a fellow citizen from government snipers who apparently were ready to initiate another Ruby Ridge or Waco.
Apparently SPLC is oblivious to the possibility that citizens can support the right of a fellow citizen to keep and bear arms and have control over his property without supporting all of that citizen’s political views. Bundy’s views may be problematic for many gun owners, but that does not prevent us from protecting his right to be on that property and to keep and bear arms.
In spite of its dubious agenda, SPLC was used as an important source for Friday’s report issued by DHS. This does not bode well for the next step. If the anonymous source mentioned above is correct, this is all a precursor to massive government action to silence all of the administration’s most effective critics.

If the United States is not an empire, the word has lost all meaning.
No sparrow falls in the forest that does not provoke a national security assessment and response.
At present, we are employing military force in six countries — Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia.
In 2011, we reduced Libya to rubble after Muammar Gaddafi did our bidding in abandoning weapons of mass destruction and in paying more than $1 billion to compensate for the Pan Am Flight 103 bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland.
We are assisting Ukraine in its conflict with Russia.
We are deploying predator drones in Niger, Djibouti and the Seychelles.
We are assisting Uganda in its fight with the Lord’s Resistance Army.
We are assisting Nigeria in its conflict with Boko Harem.
We are committed to war against Iran if we decree it has acquired a nuclear capability.
We have tens of thousands of troops stationed in Japan 70 years after the conclusion of World War II.
We have tens of thousands of troops deployed in South Korea more than 60 years after the Korean War ended.
We have tens of thousands of troops in Europe seven decades after the defeat of Hitler and more than two decades after the disintegration of the Soviet Union.
We are committed by treaty to defending approximately 50 nations from attack, including the defense of Japan in the event of a conflict with China over a few uninhabited islands in the East China Sea.
We dot the planet with hundreds of military bases.
We police the oceans with aircraft carriers, submarines and battleships.
We dominate the skies with spy satellites, stealth aircraft, and hundreds of fighters and bombers.
We have outstanding economic sanctions against 20 nations for bad behavior.
We control cyberspace with the ubiquitous collection, retention, and search of electronic communications of friend and foe alike.
We expend $1 trillion annually on national security, a sum more than the collective defense expenditures of the rest of the world.
We honor secrecy more than transparency, a quest for a risk-free existence more than liberty.
We bedeck the presidency with the trappings of a Roman emperor, including a bloated Pretorian Guard and a White House staff approaching 500. Roads are closed and traffic stops whenever the president travels.
In his July 4, 1821, address to Congress, then-Secretary of State John Quincy Adams indicated the difference between then existing empires and the American republic.
The republic spoke of equal rights among nations.
Empires spoke of double standards.
The republic influenced events abroad by example.
Empires dictated to foreign nations by military force or financial manipulation.
The republic knew that chronic embroilment in foreign wars would change the fundamental maxims of her policy from liberty to force.
Empires embraced foreign wars as an earmark of greatness.
The republic glorified liberty.
Empires glorified domination.
In sum, the United States has become a full-fledged empire.
Acknowledging this truth is the first step to curing the disease. Otherwise, self-ruination will be our fate. As Abraham Lincoln presciently lectured: “At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”

Summary of False Flag Operations and False Flag Terrorism
Definition of False Flag
“False flag terrorism” occurs when elements within a government stage a secret operation whereby government forces pretend to be a targeted enemy while attacking their own forces or people. The attack is then falsely blamed on the enemy in order to justify going to war against that enemy. Or as Wikipedia defines it:
False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as if they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of a country other than one’s own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations, and have been used in peace-time; for example, during Italy’s strategy of tension.
The term comes from the old days of wooden ships, when one ship would hang the flag of its enemy before attacking another ship in its own navy. Because the enemy’s flag was hung instead of the flag of the real country of the attacking ship, it was called a “false flag” attack.
9/11 Note: For those wanting to explore the possibility of 9/11 as a false flag operation, click here.
Historical False Flag Attacks
There are many examples of false flag attacks throughout history. For example, it is widely known that the Nazis, in Operation Himmler, faked attacks on their own people and resources which they blamed on the Poles, to justify the invasion of Poland. And it has now been persuasively argued — as shown, for example, in this History Channel video — that Nazis set fire to their own parliament, the Reichstag, and blamed that fire on others. The Reichstag fire was the watershed event which justified Hitler’s seizure of power and suspension of liberties.
And in the early 1950s, agents of an Israeli terrorist cell operating in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including U.S. diplomatic facilities, then left behind “evidence” implicating the Arabs as the culprits (one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to identify the bombers). Israel’s Defense Minister was brought down by the scandal, along with the entire Israeli government.Click here for verification.
The Russian KGB apparently conducted a wave of bombings in Russia in order to justify war against Chechnya and put Vladimir Putin into power (see also this essay and this report). And the Turkish government has been caught bombing its own and blaming it on a rebel group to justify a crackdown on that group. Muslim governments also play this game. For example, the well-respected former Indonesian president claimed that their government had a role in the Bali bombings.
This sounds nuts, right? You’ve never heard of this “false flag terrorism,” where a government attacks its own people then blames others in order to justify its goals, right? And you are skeptical of the statements discussed above? Please take a look at these historical quotes:
“If tyranny and oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.” – U.S. President James Madison
“Why of course the people don’t want war … But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship … Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” – Hermann Goering, Nazi leader.
What about the U.S.?
Is it logical to assume that, even if other countries have carried out false flag operations (especially horrible regimes such as, say, the Nazis or Stalin), the U.S. has never done so? Well, as documented by the New York Times, Iranians working for the C.I.A. in the 1950’s posed as Communists and staged bombings in Iran in order to turn the country against its democratically-elected president (see also this essay).
And, as confirmed by a former Italian Prime Minister, an Italian judge, and the former head of Italian counterintelligence, NATO carried out terror bombings in Italy with the help of the Pentagon and CIA and blamed communists in order to rally people’s support for their governments in Europe in their fight against communism. As one participant in this formerly-secret program stated: “You had to attack civilians, people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple. They were supposed to force these people, the Italian public, to turn to the state to ask for greater security.”
Moreover, declassified U.S. Government documents show that in the 1960s, the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff signed off on a plan code-named Operation Northwoods to blow up American airplanes (using an elaborate plan involving the switching of airplanes), and also to commit terrorist acts on American soil, and then to blame it on the Cubans in order to justify an invasion of Cuba. The operation was not carried out only because the Kennedy administration refused to implement these Pentagon plans.
For lots more on the astonishing Operation Northwoods, see the ABC news report; the official declassified documents; and watch this interview with James Bamford, the former Washington Investigative Producer for ABC’s World News Tonight with Peter Jennings. One quote from the the declassified Northwoods documents states: “A ‘Remember the Maine’ incident could be arranged: We could blow up a US ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba. Casualty lists in US newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation.”
What about Al-Qaeda?
You might think Al-Qaeda is different. It is very powerful, organized, and out to get us, right?Consider this Los Angeles Times article, reviewing a BBC documentary entitled The Power of Nightmares, which shows that the threat from Al Qaeda has been vastly overblown (and see this article on who is behind the hype). And former National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski testified to the Senate that the war on terror is “a mythical historical narrative.”
And did you know that the FBI had penetrated the cell which carried out the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, but had – at the last minute – cancelled the plan to have its FBI infiltrator substitute fake powder for real explosives, against the infiltrator’s strong wishes? See also this TV news report.
Have you heard that the CIA is alleged to have met with Bin Laden two months before 9/11? Did you know that years after 9/11 the FBI first stated that it did not have sufficient evidence to prosecute Bin Laden for 9/11? (See also this partial confirmation by the Washington Post) And did you see the statement in Newsweek by the CIA commander in charge of the capture that the U.S.let Bin Laden escape from Afghanistan?
Have you heard that the anthrax attacks – which were sent along with notes purportedly written by Islamic terrorists – used a weaponized anthrax strain from the top U.S. bioweapons facility? Indeed,top bioweapons experts have stated that the anthrax attack may have been a CIA test “gone wrong.” For more on this, see this article by a former NSA and naval intelligence officer and this statement by a distinguished law professor and bioterror expert (and this one).
It is also interesting that the only Congress members mailed anthrax letters were key Democrats, and that the attacks occurred one week before passage of the freedom-curtailing PATRIOT Act, which seems to have scared them and the rest of Congress into passing that act without even reading it. And though it may be a coincidence, White House staff began taking the anti-anthrax medicine before the Anthrax attacks occurred.
Even General William Odom, former director of the National Security Agency, said “By any measure the US has long used terrorism. In ‘78-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism, yet in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation” (the audio is here).
Why Does This Matter?
Please read what the following highly respected people are saying:
Former prominent Republican U.S. Congressman and CIA official Bob Barr stated that the U.S. is close to becoming a totalitarian society and that elements in government are using fear to try to bring this about.
Republican U.S. Congressman Ron Paul stated that the government “is determined to have martial law.” He also said a contrived “Gulf of Tonkin-type incident may occur to gain popular support for an attack on Iran.” Former National Security Adviser Brzezinski told the Senate that a terrorist act might be carried out in the U.S. and falsely blamed on Iran to justify yet another war.
The former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration, Paul Craig Roberts, who is called the “Father of Reaganomics” and is a former editor and columnist for the Wall Street Journal, BusinessWeek, and Scripps Howard News Service, has said:
“Ask yourself: Would a government that has lied us into two wars and is working to lie us into an attack on Iran shrink from staging ‘terrorist’ attacks in order to remove opposition to its agenda?
Retired 27-year CIA analyst Ray McGovern, who prepared and presented Presidential Daily Briefs and served as a high-level analyst for several presidents, stated that if there was another major attack in the U.S., it would lead to martial law. He went on to say:
“We have to be careful, if somebody does this kind of provocation – big violent explosions of some kind – we have to not take the word of the masters there in Washington that this was some terrorist event because it could well be a provocationallowing them, or seemingly to allow them to get what they want.”
The former CIA analyst would not put it past the government to “play fast and loose” with terror alerts and warnings and even terrorist events in order to rally people behind the flag.
General Tommy Franks stated that if another terrorist attack occurs in the United States “the Constitution will likely be discarded in favor of a military form of government.” Former UN Weapons Inspector Scott Ritter stated before the Iraq war started that there were no weapons of mass destruction. He is now saying that he would not rule out staged government terror by the U.S. government. And British Parliament Member George Galloway stated that “there is a very real danger” that the American government will stage a false flag terror attack in order to justify war against Iran and to gain complete control domestically.
The abundance of reliable information in this essay suggests that not only has the U.S. in the past conducted false flag operations, but there is a possibility that 9/11 involved some element of this deceit, and a future false flag operation cannot be ruled out. Let us spread this news to all who care so that we might build the critical mass necessary to stop these secret operations and work together for a more caring civil society.

One might think that by now even Americans would have caught on to the constant stream of false alarms that Washington sounds in order to deceive the people into supporting its hidden agendas.
The public fell for the lie that the Taliban in Afghanistan are terrorists allied with al Qaeda. Americans fought a war for 13 years that enriched Dick Cheney’s firm, Halliburton, and other private interests only to end in another Washington failure.
The public fell for the lie that Saddam Hussein in Iraq had “weapons of mass destruction” that were a threat to America and that if the US did not invade Iraq Americans risked a “mushroom cloud going up over an American city.” With the rise of ISIS, this long war apparently is far from over. Billions of dollars more in profits will pour into the coffers of the US military security complex as Washington fights those who are redrawing the false Middle East boundaries created by the British and French after WW I when the British and French seized territories of the former Ottoman Empire.
The American public fell for the lies told about Gaddafi in Libya. The formerly stable and prosperous country is now in chaos.
The American public fell for the lie that Iran has, or is building, nuclear weapons. Sanctioned and reviled by the West, Iran has shifted toward an Eastern orientation, thereby removing a principal oil producer from Western influence.
The public fell for the lie that Assad of Syria used “chemical weapons against his own people.” The jihadists that Washington sent to overthrow Assad have turned out to be, according to Washington’s propaganda, a threat to America.
The greatest threat to the world is Washington’s insistence on its hegemony. The ideology of a handful of neoconservatives is the basis for this insistence. We face the situation in which a handful of American neoconservative psychopaths claim to determine the fate of countries.
Many still believe Washington’s lies, but increasingly the world sees Washington as the greatest threat to peace and life on earth. The claim that America is “exceptional and indispensable” is used to justify Washington’s right to dictate to other countries.
The casualties of Washington’s bombings are invariably civilians, and the deaths will produce more recruits for ISIS. Already there are calls for Washington to reintroduce “boots on the ground” in Iraq. Otherwise, Western civilization is doomed, and our heads will be cut off. The newly created propaganda of a “Russian threat” requires more NATO spending and more military bases on Russia’s borders. A “quick reaction force” is being created to respond to a nonexistent threat of a Russian invasion of the Baltics, Poland, and Europe.
Usually it takes the American public a year, or two, three, or four to realize that it has been deceived by lies and propaganda, but by that time the public has swallowed a new set of lies and propaganda and is all concerned about the latest “threat.” The American public seems incapable of understanding that just as the first, second, third, fourth, and fifth, threat was a hoax, so is the sixth threat, and so will be the seventh, eighth, and ninth.
Moreover, none of these American military attacks on other countries has resulted in a better situation, as Vladimir Putin honestly states. Yet, the public and its representatives in Congress support each new military adventure despite the record of deception and failure.
Perhaps if Americans were taught their true history in place of idealistic fairy tales, they would be less gullible and less susceptible to government propaganda. I have recommended Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick’s The Untold History of the US, Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the US, and now I recommend Stephen Kinzer’s The Brothers, the story of the long rule of John Foster and Allen Dulles over the State Department and CIA and their demonization of reformist governments that they often succeeded in overthrowing. Kinzer’s history of the Dulles brothers’ plots to overthrow six governments provides insight into how Washington operates today.
In 1953 the Dulles brothers overthrew Iran’s elected leader, Mossadegh and imposed the Shah, thus poisoning American-Iranian relations through the present day. Americans might yet be led into a costly and pointless war with Iran, because of the Dulles brothers poisoning of relations in 1953.
The Dulles brothers overthrew Guatemala’s popular president Arbenz, because his land reform threatened the interest of the Dulles brothers’ Sullivan & Cromwell law firm’s United Fruit Company client. The brothers launched an amazing disinformation campaign depicting Arbenz as a dangerous communist who was a threat to Western civilization. The brothers enlisted dictators such as Somoza in Nicaragua and Batista in Cuba against Arbenz. The CIA organized air strikes and an invasion force. But nothing could happen until Arbenz’s strong support among the people in Guatemala could be shattered. The brothers arranged this through Cardinal Spellman, who enlisted Archbishop Rossell y Arellano. “A pastoral letter was read on April 9, 1954 in all Guatemalan churches.”
A masterpiece of propaganda, the pastoral letter misrepresented Arbenz as a dangerous communist who was the enemy of all Guatemalans. False radio broadcasts produced a fake reality of freedom fighter victories and army defections. Arbenz asked the UN to send fact finders, but Washington prevented that from happening. American journalists, with the exception of James Reston, supported the lies. Washington threatened and bought off Guatemala’s senior military commanders, who forced Arbenz to resign. The CIA’s chosen and well paid “liberator,” Col. Castillo Armas, was installed as Arbenz’s successor.
We recently witnessed a similar operation in Ukraine.
President Eisenhower thanked the CIA for averting “a Communist beachhead in our hemisphere,” and Secretary of State John Foster Dulles gave a national TV and radio address in which he declared that the events in Guatemala “expose the evil purpose of the Kremlin.” This despite the uncontested fact that the only outside power operating in Guatemala was the Dulles brothers.
What had really happened is that a democratic and reformist government was overthrown because it compensated United Fruit Company for the nationalization of the company’s fallow land at a value listed by the company on its tax returns. America’s leading law firm or perhaps more accurately, America’s foreign policy-maker, Sullivan & Cromwell, had no intention of permitting a democratic government to prevail over the interests of the law firm’s client, especially when senior partners of the firm controlled both overt and covert US foreign policy. The two brothers, whose family members were invested in the United Fruit Company, simply applied the resources of the CIA, State Department, and US media to the protection of their private interests. The extraordinary gullibility of the American people, the corrupt American media, and the indoctrinated and impotent Congress allowed the Dulles brothers to succeed in overthrowing a democracy.
Keep in mind that this use of the US government in behalf of private interests occurred 60 years ago long before the corrupt Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama regimes. And no doubt in earlier times as well.
The Dulles brothers next intended victim was Ho Chi Minh. Ho, a nationalist leader, asked for America’s help in freeing Vietnam from French colonial rule. But John Foster Dulles, a self-righteous anti-communist, miscast Ho as a Communist Threat who was springing the domino theory on the Western innocents. Nationalism and anti-colonialism, Foster declared, were merely a cloak for communist subversion.
Paul Kattenburg, the State Department desk officer for Vietnam suggested that instead of war, the US should give Ho $500 million in reconstruction aid to rebuild the country from war and French misrule, which would free Ho from dependence on Russian and Chinese support, and, thereby, influence. Ho appealed to Washington several times, but the demonic inflexibility of the Dulles brothers prevented any sensible response. Instead, the hysteria whipped-up over the “communist threat” by the Dulles brothers landed the United States in the long, costly, fiasco known as the Vietnam War. Kattenburg later wrote that it was suicidal for the US “to cut out its eyes and ears, to castrate its analytic capacity, to shut itself off from the truth because of blind prejudice.” Unfortunately for Americans and the world, castrated analytic capacity is Washington’s strongest suit.
The Dulles brothers’ next targets were President Sukarno of Indonesia, Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba of Congo, and Fidel Castro. The plot against Castro was such a disastrous failure that it cost Allen Dulles his job. President Kennedy lost confidence in the agency and told his brother Bobby that after his reelection he was going to break the CIA into a thousand pieces. When President Kennedy removed Allen Dulles, the CIA understood the threat and struck first.
Warren Nutter, my Ph.D. dissertation chairman, later Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs, taught his students that for the US government to maintain the people’s trust, which democracy requires, the government’s policies must be affirmations of our principles and be openly communicated to the people. Hidden agendas, such as those of the Dulles brothers and the Clinton, Bush and Obama regimes, must rely on secrecy and manipulation and, thereby, arouse the distrust of the people. If Americans are too brainwashed to notice, many foreign nationals are not.
The US government’s secret agendas have cost Americans and many peoples in the world tremendously. Essentially, the Foster brothers created the Cold War with their secret agendas and anti-communist hysteria. Secret agendas committed Americans to long, costly, and unnecessary wars in Vietnam and the Middle East. Secret CIA and military agendas intending regime change in Cuba were blocked by President John F. Kennedy and resulted in the assassination of a president, who, for all his faults, was likely to have ended the Cold War twenty years before Ronald Reagan seized the opportunity.
Secret agendas have prevailed for so long that the American people themselves are now corrupted. As the saying goes, “a fish rots from the head.” The rot in Washington now permeates the country.
Since most American’s simply cannot accept the truth, or are too busy enjoying what’s left of the good life, I will present you with an analogy to show how ridiculous your apathy is.
I once knew a man named Fred who had three beautiful daughters, and an even more beautiful wife who were childhood sweethearts. He never knew any other lovers besides her, and the man was completely in love with her even after thirty-five years of what he considered heaven on earth. He worked his whole life as a iron worker which was grueling labor, and he often came home too exhausted to eat dinner.
One day his life long best friend finally told him the truth about his supposed heaven on earth and the four angels he shared his life with.
It seems his loving wife had been prostituting not only herself but the three daughters as well for over twenty years. All this, just because they could not live the life they wanted on Pops salary, and they were all four nymphomaniacs to boot. None of them could be satisfied either sexually, or monetarily.
On hearing the truth about his family, Fred shot his friend dead.
That ladies and gentlemen is a perfect likeness of the average American. They would rather kill than face the truth!

The new sanctions against Russia announced by Washington and Europe do not make sense as merely economic measures. I would be surprised if Russian oil and military industries were dependent on European capital markets in a meaningful way. Such a dependence would indicate a failure in Russian strategic thinking. The Russian companies should be able to secure adequate financing from Russian Banks or from the Russian government. If foreign loans are needed, Russia can borrow from China.
If critical Russian industries are dependent on European capital markets, the sanctions will help Russia by forcing an end to this debilitating dependence. Russia should not be dependent on the West in any way.
The real question is the purpose of the sanctions. My conclusion is that the purpose of the sanctions is to break up and undermine Europe’s economic and political relations with Russia. When international relations are intentionally undermined, war can be the result. Washington will continue to push sanctions against Russia until Russia shows Europe that there is a heavy cost of serving as Washington’s tool.
Russia needs to break up this process of ever more sanctions in order to derail the drive toward war. In my opinion this is easy for Russia to do. Russia can tell Europe that since you do not like our oil companies, you must not like our gas company, so we are turning off the gas. Or Russia can tell Europe, we don’t sell natural gas to NATO members, or Russia can say we will continue to sell you gas, but you must pay in rubles, not in dollars. This would have the additional benefit of increasing the demand for rubles in exchange markets, thus making it harder for speculators and the US government to drive down the ruble.
The real danger to Russia is a continuation of its low-key, moderate response to the sanctions. This is a response that encourages more sanctions. To stop the sanctions, Russia needs to show Europe that the sanctions have serious costs for Europe.
A Russian response to Washington would be to stop selling to the US the Russian rocket engines on which the US satellite program is dependent. This could leave the US without rockets for its satellites for six years between the period 2016 and 2022.
Possibly the Russian government is worried about losing the earnings from gas and rocket engine sales. However, Europe cannot do without the gas and would quickly abandon its participation in the sanctions, so no gas revenues would be lost. The Americans are going to develop their own rocket engine anyhow, so the Russian sales of rocket engines to the US have at most about 6 more years. But the US with an impaired satellite program for six years would mean a great relief to the entire world from the American spy program. It would also make difficult US military aggression against Russia during the period.
Russian President Putin and his government have been very low-key and unprovocative in responding to the sanctions and to the trouble that Washington continues to cause for Russia in Ukraine. The low-key Russian behavior can be understood as a strategy for undermining Washington’s use of Europe against Russia by presenting a non-threatening face to Europe. However, another explanation is the presence inside Russia of a fifth column that represents Washington’s interest and constrains the power of the Russian government.
Strelkov describes the American fifth column here: http://slavyangrad.org/2014/09/
Saker describes the two power groups inside Russia as the Eurasian Sovereignists who stand behind Putin and an independent Russia and the Atlantic Integrationists, the fifth column that works to incorporate Russia in Europe under US hegemony or, failing that, to help Washington break up the Russian Federation into several weaker countries that are too weak to constrain Washington’s use of power. http://vineyardsaker.blogspot.com
Russia’s Atlantic Integrationists share the Brzezinski and Wolfowitz doctrines with Washington. These doctrines are the basis for US foreign policy. The doctrines define the goal of US foreign policy in terms of preventing the rise of other countries, such as Russia and China, that could limit Washington’s hegemony.
Washington is in a position to exploit the tensions between these two Russian power groups. Washington’s fifth column is not best positioned to prevail. However, Washington can at least count on the struggle causing dissent within the Eurasian Sovereignists over Putin’s low-key response to Western provocations. Some of this dissent can be seen in Strelkov’s defense of Russia and more can be seen here:
Russia, thinking the Cold War ended with the collapse of the Soviet Union, opened herself to the West. Russian governments trusted the West, and as a result of Russia’s gullibility, the West was able to purchase numerous allies among the Russian elites. Depending on the alignment of the media, these compromised elites are capable of assassinating Putin and attempting a coup.
One would think that by now Putin’s government would recognize the danger and arrest the main elements of the fifth column, followed by trial and execution for treason, in order that Russia can stand united against the Western Threat. If Putin does not take this step, it means either than Putin does not recognize the extent of the threat or that his government lacks the power to protect Russia from the internal threat.
It is clear that Putin has not achieved any respite for his government from the West’s propaganda and economic assault by refusing to defend the Donbass area from Ukrainian attack and by pressuring the Donetsk Republic into a ceasefire when its military forces were on the verge of a major defeat of the disintegrating Ukrainian army. All Putin has achieved is to open himself to criticism among his supporters for betraying the Russians in eastern and southern Ukraine.
The European politicians and elites are so deeply in Washington’s pocket that Putin has little chance of courting Europe with a Russian show of good will. I have never believed that this strategy could work, although I would be pleased if it did. Only a direct threat todeprive Europe of energy has a chance of producing within Europe a foreign policy independent of Washington. I do not think Europe can survive a cutoff of the Russian natural gas. Europe would abandon sanctions in order to guarantee the flow of gas. If Washington’s hold on Europe is so powerful that Europe is willing to endure a major disruption of its energy supply as the price of its vassalage, Russia will know to cease its futile attempts at diplomacy and to prepare for war.
If China sits on the sidelines, China will be the next isolated target and will receive the same treatment.
Washington intends to defeat both countries, either through internal dissent or through war.
Nothing said by Obama or any member of his government or any influential voice in Congress has signaled any pullback in Washington’s drive for hegemony over the world.
The US economy is now dependent on looting and plunder, and Washington’s hegemony is essential to this corrupted form of capitalism.

Indiana passes rational legislation concerning ‘public servants’ unlawfully entering another person’s private property.
Its Now LEGAL to SHOOT POLICE in Indiana if you believe The Cop Is Unlawfully Entering Your Home!
It’s becoming a daily occurrence when we see examples of cops breaking into the wrong house and shooting the family dog, or worse, killing a member of the family.
Now Indiana has taken action to “recognize the unique character of a citizen’s home and to ensure that a citizen feels secure in his or her own home against unlawful intrusion by another individual or a public servant.”
Indiana’s special amendment is no revolutionary new thought, only common sense.
Self-defense is a natural/God given right; when laws are in place that protect incompetent police by removing a persons ability to protect one’s self, simply because the aggressor has a badge and a uniform, is a human rights violation. Indiana is leading the way by recognizing this right and creating legislation to protect it.
Of course cops have already begun to fear monger the passage of this bill, “If I pull over a car and I walk up to it and the guy shoots me, he’s going to say, ‘Well, he was trying to illegally enter my property,’ ” said Joseph Hubbard, 40, president of Jeffersonville Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 100. “Somebody is going get away with killing a cop because of this law.” Well now imagine how the victims of police abuse/murder feel. Welcome to the real world, if it is going to take the police to fear the people before they cease and desist to violate their oaths to office, then so be it. Why should the public fear their public servants?
Instead of looking at the beneficial aspect of this law, which creates the incentive for police to act responsibly and just, Hubbard takes the ‘higher than thou’ attitude and is simply worried about himself.
How about questioning the immoral laws that you are enforcing in the first place? Or how about sympathizing with the innocent people whose pets and family members have been slain, due to police negligence?
How do you feel about Indiana’s new law?
AN ACT to amend the Indiana Code concerning criminal law and procedure.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Indiana:
SECTION 1. IC 35-41-3-2, AS AMENDED BY P.L.189-2006, SECTION 1, IS AMENDED TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE UPON PASSAGE]: Sec. 2. (a) In enacting this section, the general assembly finds and declares that it is the policy of this state to recognize the unique character of a citizen’s home and to ensure that a citizen feels secure in his or her own home against unlawful intrusion by another individual or a public servant. By reaffirming the long standing right of a citizen to protect his or her home against unlawful intrusion, however, the general assembly does not intend to diminish in any way the other robust self defense rights that citizens of this state have always enjoyed. Accordingly, the general assembly also finds and declares that it is the policy of this state that people have a right to defend themselves and third parties from physical harm and crime. The purpose of this section is to provide the citizens of this state with a lawful means of carrying out this policy.
(b) As used in this section, “public servant” means a person described in IC 35-41-1-17, IC 35-31.5-2-129, or IC 35-31.5-2-185.
(c) A person is justified in using reasonable force against another any other person to protect the person or a third person from what the person reasonably believes to be the imminent use of unlawful force.

The New York Times blasted out the headline yesterday, Obama Pursuing Climate Accord in Lieu of Treaty. In short, Obama will use one or more Executive Orders to entangle the U.S. in a global treaty on climate change, without consulting the U.S. Senate. However, the Constitution requires the Senate to vote on all treaties and the bar is high: It takes a two-third vote to approve.
The Constitution is out. The Rule of law has collapsed. Reflexive law has surpassed it all. The balance of this article will show you how and why.
If you are saying “Huh?”, you had better read every word of this report and figure it out, because this might be the most important shard of evidence ever revealed about the wrenching transformation of American society.
Obama’s principal adviser and “negotiator” on this so-called climate accord is John Podesta, and this whole “treaty-by-executive-order debacle can be laid squarely at his feet. Until just recently, Podesta was a member of the Trilateral Commission. He was Bill Clinton’s chief-of-staff in the 1990s and the original instigator of Executive Branch policy of using Executive Orders to bypass Congress on certain issues. Clinton, also a Trilateral member, created many such EO’s to side-step Congress, and Congress unfortunately let him get away with it. Well, Podesta is back: I have stated publicly on several radio programs since his recent appointment to Senior Policy Adviser To The President that Podesda is the most dangerous man in Washington.
Enough about Podesda. Just remember that he is the prime mover in what I am about to reveal.
The NYT article states,
To sidestep that requirement [of a 2/3 Senate vote], President Obama’s climate negotiators are devising what they call a “politically binding” deal that would “name and shame” countries into cutting their emissions. The deal is likely to face strong objections from Republicans on Capitol Hill and from poor countries around the world, but negotiators say it may be the only realistic path.
Several weeks ago, while doing some research for my upcoming book, Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation, a book had caught my eye and so I impulsively bought it. The title was Greening NAFTA by Markell and Knox and published in 2003 by Stanford University Press. According to the book, there was a supplemental agreement to NAFTA (1992) called the North American Agreement on Environmental Cooperation (NAAEC), which established the North American Commission for Environmental Cooperation (CEC). The CEC was“the first international organization created to address the environmental aspects of economic integration.” (1)
I intended to put the book in my library for some future date, but since I more recently had a five hour plane flight and needed something to do, I hastily threw it into my briefcase on the way out the door. On the first leg of the flight, I skimmed the book, underlining a few things, but otherwise it generally put me to sleep. On the return flight 10 days later, I picked it up again and flipped the pages thinking it would be more of the same, only to fall on a chapter toward the back titled, “Coordinating Land and Water Use in the San Pedro River Basin.”The San Pedro River is in southern Arizona, and it just so happened that I had owned a ranch on that same river when I first got out of college in 1968, and so I knew the area like the back of my hand. Now I was really interested!
The San Pedro River Basin was the first instance of CEC involvement because it was a small and relatively unimportant area, and because the headwaters of the San Pedro River originated in Mexico, just south of the U.S. border. Greening NAFTA explains,
Under Articles 13 and 14, the Secretariat can accept and review citizen submissions alleging that one of the three countries is not enforcing its existing environmental laws. (2)
In fact, the San Pedro submission (i.e., complaint) came not from a citizen at all, but from the radical left-wing environmental group based out of Tucson, theSouthwest Center for Biological Diversity (SCBD). The mere accusation that the area was in violation of their preconceived ideas of normalcy was enough to set off a chain of events that changed the San Pedro River Basin forever. Here is where the plot thickens. The authors explain,
Article 13 can be characterized as an example of postmodern, “soft” or “reflexive” international law because it seeks to influence public and private behavior without the threat of the enforcement of traditional, sanction-based “hard” law. (3)
I had only heard (obviously not understanding) the term “soft law” before, but what is “reflexive law?” The author treats them as synonyms. After a another round of digging, I found the fountainhead of reflexive law in the following article, Towards a Theory of Law and Societal Development, written by a professor of international law in Sweden:
Another sociologist of law who have dealt with legal development in stages is Günther Teubner. He has in an article in Law and Society Review 1983 put forward a theory that the law moves from formal to substantive law and onwards to something he calls reflexive law. Teubner agrees with Nonet-Selznick that we have passed a stage of formal law, which is consistent with the concept of autonomous law, and after that have entered a stadium of material law. Teubner does think the transition from formal to material law should be divided into two types. A “genuine” material law which is used to realize specific, concrete values, what Teubner calls for substantive law and another type of material law which Teubner has labeled reflexive law. This latter legal form is characterized by constitutive and procedural rules that put limits on legal developments without specifying concrete material values to be realized. Teubner summarizes the characteristics of reflexive law by putting it in relief to the formal and substantive law as follows:
Reflexive law affects the quality of outcomes without determining that the agreements will be reached. Unlike formal law, it does not take prior distributions as given. Unlike Substantive law it does not hold that certain contractual outcomes are desirable. (4) [Emphasis added]
So we see that reflexive law is just over 30 years old, and yet it has since become the principal means by which to collapse the Rule of Law, based on actual laws, in the United States and in the Western world. Furthermore, reflexive law starts without first determining exactly what agreement will be reached, but pushes forward anyway to see how far the participants can be pushed.
Hard law, which we are all familiar with, specifies clear outcomes when it is violated. If you speed, you get a ticket. If you commit armed robbery, you go to jail for a specified period. This is the traditional Rule of Law upon which our Republic and Constitution is based. Laws are created by a Legislative Branch, executed by the Executive Branch and adjudicated by the Judicial Branch.
Greening NAFTA now explains exactly what reflexive law entails:
Reflexive law tries to align systematically legal rules with norms that the relevant actors will internalize. It builds on the realization that the reasons why people actually obey law ultimately lie outside formal adjudication and the power of the state to enforce rules. (5)
Again, reflexive law starts out with desired outcomes, created by unelected and unaccountable actors, for which there are no laws. Yes, they could appeal to Congress to create legislation, as would be required by the Constitution. At the end of the reflexive process, described below, the actual outcomes depend on how well the stakeholders “internalize” what is proposed. In other words, there is no actual legal process at all, but rather a jawboning process that cons actors into compliance.
“Information disclosure” is a principal policy instrument of reflexive law. That is, the analysis produced is presented with its “recommended outcomes.” Public meetings are then held to build consensus between individual citizens and other “actors”. In the case of the San Pedro River Basin study, the CEC enlisted the University of Arizona’s Udall Center to hold these public meetings. In sum, there was zero consensus among actual citizens of the area, as the book simply notes, “Public comment was emotionally divided on the reduction of irrigated agriculture.” (6) Really? In fact, the farmers and ranchers in the area were beyond livid, but the real purpose of the public meetings had nothing to do with getting their voluntary consensus. Rather, the meetings were designed to publicly abuse them until they submitted.
The Greening NAFTA authors are very blunt about this:
This experience reveals two powerful incentives at work: shame and thedesire to be virtuous while saving money or increasing profit margins. In a post-Holocaust world, human rights NGOs have effectively used shame to induce compliance with universal human rights norms. Also, voluntary pollution reduction has been achieved when it is internally profitable for an industry to reduce its discharges or an industry anticipates increased regulatory or public pressure to reduce them from the disclosure, such as through public shaming. Shaming works well with pollution, especially toxic pollution, because it draws on deep, perhaps irrational, fears of exposure to the risk of serious illness and an innate abhorrence of bodily injury.(7)
What of the farmers and ranchers who refused to be shamed into consensus during the Udall Center public hearings? After all, they had zero input into the CEC’s study and subsequent “recommendations”, nor were they consulted prior to the Southwest Center for Biological Diversity’s original complaint. Well, they were simply offered other incentives that they were helpless to refuse or refute:
Two concrete incentives that have successfully induced landowner cooperation under the U.S. Endangered Species Act are fear of a worse regulatory outcome and immunity from liability for changed conditions.(8) [Emphasis added]
In the end, the farmers and ranchers succumbed to the reflexive law process when the regulatory bullies showed up with threats of what would happen to them if they did not buckle under to the CEC’s demands. These actors included the Bureau of Land Management, manager of the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area (SPRNCA) and the U.S. Department of the Army. Accompanying them were several NGO’s, including the Nature Conservancy and the Southwest Center for Biological Diversity. The federal threat was “We will bankrupt you with regulations.” The NGO threat was “We will bankrupt you with lawsuits.”
This is “reflexive law” and it is 100 percent antithetical to the American Republic, the Rule of Law, the U.S. Constitution and the entirety of Western civilization. Because compliance has always been posited as voluntary, nobody has been alarmed enough to look any further at it. However, I will point out that almost every global imposition has been based on the voluntary aspect of reflexive law. Agenda 21 depended upon voluntary compliance, which is often referred to as “soft law” among its critics, who have not perceived the deeper meaning of reflexive law. Common Core education standards were introduced as a voluntary program. Sustainable Development in general is always proposed to be a voluntary program. All of these are based on reflexive law. But, once it gets its tentacles into your personal property and local community, you will be involuntarily squeezed until you “voluntarily” comply. There is no legal process available to defend yourself, your property, or your rights.
Now let’s examine the NYT article mentioned at the start of this article.
To sidestep that requirement [two-third vote of the Senate], President Obama’s climate negotiators are devising what they call a “politically binding” deal that would “name and shame” countries into cutting their emissions. The deal is likely to face strong objections from Republicans on Capitol Hill and from poor countries around the world, but negotiators say it may be the only realistic path. (9) [Emphasis added]
Did your alarm bells ring? Obama is delivering us into an international reflexive law treaty that has no actual legal basis in fact, and that is why they think they are justified in ignoring the Senate. After all, the Senate deals with “hard law” while Podesta and gang deals with “reflexive law.” Furthermore, they will use the principal “name and shame” policy tool of reflexive law to smoke out the resistance for public shaming. Subsequently, from what you now know about how reflexive law is enforced in the end, those holdouts will be offered a “deal that they cannot refuse”, namely, much worse regulatory outcomes, international lawsuits and entanglement, trade sanctions, etc.
The NYT elaborates further:
American negotiators are instead homing in on a hybrid agreement — a proposal to blend legally binding conditions from an existing 1992 treaty with new voluntary pledges. The mix would create a deal that would update the treaty, and thus, negotiators say, not require a new vote of ratification.
Countries would be legally required to enact domestic climate change policies — but would voluntarily pledge to specific levels of emissions cuts and to channel money to poor countries to help them adapt to climate change. Countries might then be legally obligated to report their progress toward meeting those pledges at meetings held to identify those nations that did not meet their cuts. (10) [Emphasis added]
There is not a single shred of doubt that anything other than reflexive law is pictured here. It spits in the face of traditional Rule of Law that our country was founded upon and operated under until 1983 when this treasonous legal system was conceived — by a German, no less. For all intents and purposes, reflexive law has caused the utter collapse of Rule of Law as we know it.
Don’t even begin to think this is anything less than blatant, for the article concludes with the frank braggadocio :
“There’s some legal and political magic to this,” said Jake Schmidt, an expert in global climate negotiations with the Natural Resources Defense Council, an advocacy group. “They’re trying to move this as far as possible without having to reach the 67-vote threshold” in the Senate.(11) [Emphasis added]
Magic, indeed: Merriam-Webster defines magic as “the art of producing illusions by sleight of hand.”
To copycat Paul Harvey’s famous radio program sign-off, “Now you know… therest of the story.”

When a government no longer follows the rule of law, imposing instead it’s own law by decree – history teaches that a society becomes ruled by the gun.
Legitimate government bound by the rule of law has the moral authority to uphold the law and impose justice. A government the discards the rule of law, for it’s own rules and laws, no longer has any moral authority. As such, the rule of law is always replaced by the rule of the gun – either to force compliance with a government’s dictates and whims, or in resistance to the government’s dictates and whims. Regardless which is employed (usually both) – rivers of blood follow as history teaches that civil wars and conflicts are usually the most brutal.
Obama and his party (and to a minor degree the GOP leadership oligarchy) – are setting the stage for that exact consequence to be visited upon what used to be the home of the free.
What we are witnessing, is the devolution of the civil society into tyranny prompted by the incitement of anarchy. The stoking of unrest in Ferguson by the White House, it’s attorney general and assorted race pimps like Sharpton, illustrate this fact in the local sense.
In the larger sense, the Ruling Class pass laws upon the people that they absolve and exempt themselves, at the same time they use a corrupted judiciary to strike down the will of the people to impose the will of the Leftist State. This includes the domino fall of nearly every state’s Constitutional ban on Homosexual marriage or those laws limiting marriage to the biblical and natural law.
A despotic Executive who when not playing golf, decides what laws he will ignore and no longer enforce, while decreeing policy as law that contravenes existing law. This was once understood to be the definition of a dictatorship, but today the people are ignorant of facts, history and current events for the latest cultural fad via social networking. For a people fast asleep to what is happening to them, the awakening to the cage they are shackled to will be violent, as history teaches.
Arbitrary laws mean there is no longer any common respect for the law – by either the government, or those it demands to rule. Law is then determined by the end of a gun. By those seeking to impose compliance or by those resisting it. The cost of which is beyond the comprehension of most when one considers not just the violence – but the privation, starvation and brutality that lies in the wake of civil war.
But America is being shoved headfirst off the cliff by the man who holds the White House and those in government.
Rejecting The Rule Of Law Means Inviting The Rule Of Guns
Kurt Schlichter – Townhall.com
What is the alternative to the rule of law? We may be on the verge of re-learning that ancient lesson the hard way. Of course, those of us who is served in places where there was no law, where leftists and other aspiring totalitarians ignored the rules and norms of civil society, already know.
The alternative to the rule of law is the rule of power. And the rule of power is always the rule of men with guns.
The disgraceful indictment of Rick Perry in Texas is just the latest example of this trend, albeit one that carries the seeds of hope. The judicial lynching under way in Ferguson offers less reason for optimism – our disgrace of an Attorney General and that clown masquerading as Missouri’s governor are practically salivating at the idea of sacrificing the police officer on the altar of indignation, facts and law be damned.
Liberals are committed to destroying the rule of law because law, by treating all equally and recognizing their inalienable rights, frustrates their fascist impulses. This isn’t just another annoying manifestation of the left’s utter failure as functioning ideology. It’s a trend that should terrify everyone concerned with the state of our union.
History shows us where this leads. We now have a President, an alleged constitutional law professor, who believes that if the people’s elected representatives in Congress refuse to bend to his will he can just do what he likes anyway. At least when Caesar finally destroyed the Republic, ancient Rome ended up with a dictator who knew how to win wars.
This guy golfs while the world burns.
We have government agencies like the IRS and EPA simply ignoring laws, like the ones that that require them to maintain records so they can be held accountable to the people they purport to serve. Where are the consequences for their conscious failure to do so? The problem is that those sworn to uphold the law are the very ones undermining it. Can’t Eric Holder take a break from telegraphing to his progressive pals that his lackeys won’t be deterred from crucifying the Ferguson officer by obstacles like facts, evidence and law, and do his job?
He never will. Today, there are no consequences for those whose law-breaking aids the establishment.
And when not actively ignoring the law, the liberal establishment seeks to change the foundations of our law to strip the civil rights from those who oppose it. It is mind-boggling: We now have one of our two major political parties that, as a key policy position, believes that the First Amendment allows too much freedom of speech. The Democrats literally wish to amend the Constitution to restrict our right of free expression.
Yeah, that’s America’s problem – too much free speech by people critical of the government. That and gender specific bathrooms. And global warming, which science teaches comes from unicorn flatulence.
This isn’t a surprise. In the name of “campaign finance reform” – that is, the protection of largely Democrat incumbents – the Obama Administration actually sent an attorney representing theUnited States of America into the Supreme Court to argue that the government has the right to ban a book critical of a politician.
The clowns are to your right to read and think what you wish as John Lithgow was to dancing in Footloose. Which makes conservatives Kevin Bacon.
So what happens when the government is not restrained by law? What happens first is that the government does what it wants, as it wants, without accountability. That provides those left unprotected by the law two ugly choices. On one hand, they can submit, and allow themselves to be oppressed, existing at the pleasure, and subject to the whims, of their masters.
The alternative is to fight. Look at the Declaration of Independence. It’s largely a chronicle of English lawlessness, though the members of this administration no doubt consider that document unworthy of study because the Founding Fathers were cisgender, phallocentric racists or something.
Chairman Mao, who is a big favorite of the half-wits in the White House, said it best: “Power comes from the barrel of a gun.” If there is no law, there is no moral reason not to pick up a rifle and take what you want. The moral imperative of the law is that you will obey and respect it even if you disagree with it because it was justly imposed and will be fairly enforced. But if the law is neither justly imposed nor fairly enforced, that moral obligation disappears.
I walked through the burnt-out villages of Kosovo after the moral imperative of the law there had disappeared. The baffling concept that half of America will simply shrug their shoulders and submit to the dictatorship of the other half is as dangerous as it is misguided and foolish. When you toss out the law, bad things happen. This is a major theme of my new book, Conservative Insurgency, a speculative future history of the struggle to restore our country, and the consequences of short-sighted attacks on the rule of law for short-term political gain are not pleasant.
But there is hope. When that drunken Democrat convict of a district attorney indicted Rick Perry for doing his job – and that is exactly what she indicted him for – even some liberals swallowed hard and shook their heads. Perhaps this was the bridge too far that finally made a few liberals re-think their comrades’ chosen path downward into chaos.
The reaction of a few liberals to this charade is a sign of hope, but sadly many other leftists are clapping their soft, pudgy hands like trained seals, eagerly welcoming this latest step towards their liberal fascist Utopia. Somehow they got the impression that the American people will accept whatever they do, whatever injustice they impose, whatever whims they choose to enforce. That is an unbelievably dangerous notion. The sooner we stomp it out and return to the rule of law, the better.

Education is all about head-shrinking. A perfectly normal head or, to be more precise, mind, is taken before it can form important concepts and gather life-saving knowledge, and it is reduced to the size of a pea through concept-shrinking educational activities. Then after twelve, sixteen and even twenty years of such education, these shriveled and minuscule minds are released unfocused to society for the strongest voice and the most powerful hand to lead. – Joe David – The Fire Within
Today, everywhere, we are seeing the results of decades of such education. While extremists invade all areas of our society, deconstructing our culture with hateful slogans and deeds, the majority of Americans ignore them. They don’t understand – or care to understand what is happening. They are too absorbed in their artificial world, created with Silicon Valley’s high-tech gadgetry and Hollywood’s special-effects entertainment, to note what is happening around them. Those few who do understand and dare to identify the enemy are usually discredited.
A huge organization of thinkers (and pundits) do this by overloading the public with volumes of words, often contradicting the truth, blaming everyone but those guilty for what is happening today in America. By inundating the public with confusing information, they are allowing our truly dangerous enemy, bent on burning our Constitution and stealing our freedom and prosperity, to continue their schemes, unnoticed. Disguised by respectability and entrenched in three primary areas of our culture, this enemy with laser-like precision is surgically turning the land of the free and the home of the brave into the land of the mindless and the home of the submissive.
The most respected and perhaps the most destructive enemy of American culture are the educators. While promising to liberate us, they are instead enslaving us with their weapon of mass-mental self-destruction. This weapon is called pragmatism, a philosophy bequeathed to them by the father of modern “education.” What makes this philosophy threatening to healthy minds is its non-ideological approach to problem-solving. Translated, this simply means students are encouraged to seek immediate, not moral solutions to important problems. Such quick-fix solutions to urgent problems rarely address their underlining cause, leaving them free to haunt us periodically until, if ever, they are corrected. (Almost everything the government does these days exemplifies this approach to problem solving.)
This deadly philosophy responsible for this crept into our schools through the teachings of John Dewey. It is his progressive ideas on education that have directly (and even indirectly) influenced the outcome of modern education (i.e., the abandonment of phonics, the creation of anti-intellectual classroom exercises, the new math system, cultural relativism, historical revisionism, political correctness, and the list goes on). After years of such education, the results are seen almost everywhere. It is most obvious among public school graduates who leave school unable to read, write or think independently. Instead of having mastered higher-level reasoning skills, the opposite has occurred. Tossed into the gutter educationally, they have been left to find their way out without any intelligent guidance. The primary conversation of such aborted mental misfits centers around the mating habits of their favorite celebrity, the latest cool “action” movie, or the most popular mind-blowing recreational drug. When young adults do attempt to lift themselves to higher levels of thinking, they usually find themselves sinking in quicksand, because their ideas are often built on faulty premises. Our schools in their eagerness to mass-produce ignorance have successfully created students who can only reverberate memorized clichés, unprocessed cerebrally.
When I began to write for the general markets in the sixties, certain taboos existed among publications. These taboos were clearly communicated to writers. The reason was to make certain everyone understood who his audience was. Within the perimeters of these taboos, though, the writer was able to write freely, restrained only by good taste and reason. Today, unfortunately, such freedom has been lifted. What we are facing, in lieu of a taboos, is wide-spread censorship. The market available to responsible writers has shrunk significantly. If writers want to be published widely, they must maintain an acceptable bias. They are only allowed to tell the truth up to a point, and only then if they give the content the right spin. Success in this new market is determined by the skill with which a writer can make his spin believable.
Because of such growing censorship, we are reaching the end of free speech. Dark clouds are hovering over America. The leaders in communications are shamelessly making certain to this by giving preference to writers with troubled and muddled minds who have no problem building a case against a victim without first a fair trial (the George Zimmerman case, for example). Their reason for this is to take us into a New World where law and order is replaced by mob rule.
Thomas Jefferson once said, “A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have.” Every day in so many different ways Americans are voting for more government expansion without realizing they are creating more opportunity for tyranny. The scandals in government (which even the powerful media aren’t always able to hush up) are occurring regularly at an unbelievable rate. Those noble programs which have been created to help the unfortunate have become money-laundering enterprises that make a few select people very rich at the public’s expense. Instead of having a government that protects us, we have one that is bankrupting us both financially and morally with lucrative scams.
Thanks to the dumbing down of America by the schools, today the big three are able to get away with this, and, at the same time, divide Americans (whites against blacks, Christians against Muslims, rich against poor, immigrants against natives, and the list goes on, ad infinitum). By creating divisiveness, they are setting up the dynamics for the final stage of their plan, a civil war which will give the government the excuse it needs to crush Americans through military rule. Like Germany during the time of Hitler, we are presently being identified (phone taping and email hijacking by NSA), and silenced (the Tea Party scandal and the censorship of the pulpit by the IRS). These three important segments of our society, which are capable of lifting us to the highest level of achievement by protecting our rights and expanding our minds, are effectively leading us to our enslavement.
Right now our borders are broken and the terrorists are flooding the land. While this is occurring, Americans are overdosing on sex, drugs, and mindless entertainment. Any day, any time, the enemy will rise up and take action, armed for modern warfare, with the complete support of the big three.
The big question: Will America survive?
The answer to that is DEFENITLY NO! In fact, what we have always believed America is, has been subverted until nothing recognizable is left. The land of the free, and the home of the brave is now, with few exceptions, the land of voluntary slaves, and the home of narcissistic cowards. We have been surreptitiously invaded by the very best minds the International Investment Banking Cartel could find to lead us to self destruction.

By David Horowitz
Let me begin by acknowledging that this inspirational title is lifted from a tweet by screen actor James Woods. And now I will explicate his tweet.
Every sentient human being whose brain isn’t stuffed with ideological fairy dust can see that Obama is behind every major scandal of his administration from Benghazi to the I.R.S. disgrace. How can one know this? Because the culprits haven’t been fired. Moreover, if they are serial liars like Susan Rice, they’ve actually been promoted to posts where their loyalty to the criminal-in-chief can do America and its citizens even more damage, if that is possible.
A president faced with a scandal created by underlings behind his back would be naturally furious at their misbehavior, and want heads to roll. This didn’t happen in any of these scandals because their point of origin was the White House itself. Promoting the culprits is a way of keeping them quiet.
And what exactly is the I.R.S. scandal about — to take just one case? It’s a plan unprecedented in modern American politics to push the political system towards a one-party state by using the taxing authority of the government to cripple and destroy the political opposition. The administration’s campaign to promote voter fraud by opposing measures to stop it (and defaming them as “racist” is guided by the same intentions and desire).
And why shouldn’t Obama want to destroy the two-party system since he is also in utter contempt of the Constitutional framework, making law illegally, and defying an impotent Congress to stop him? Of course every radical, like Obama, hates the Constitutional framework because, as Madison explained in Federalist #10, it is designed to thwart “the wicked projects” of the left to redistribute income and destroy the free market.
The same desire to overwhelm and permanently suppress the opposition drives the war that Obama and the Democrats have conducted against America’s borders and therefore American sovereignty. Their plan is to flood the country with illegals of whatever stripe who will be grateful enough for the favor to win them elections and create a permanent majority in their favor. The immediate result of these efforts is that we have no secure southern border, and therefore no border; and therefore we have effectively invited criminals and terrorists to come across and do Americans harm.
Which brings us to the deepest level of Obama’s hell, which is his anti-American foreign policy. When Obama was re-elected in 2012, the very first thought I had was this: A lot of people are going to be dead because of this election. How disastrously right I was. Since their assault on George Bush and their sabotage of the war in Iraq, Obama and the Democrats have forged a power vacuum in Europe and even more dramatically in the Middle East, which nasty characters have predictably entered with ominous implications for the future security of all Americans.
Take one aspect of this epic default: Obama’s lack of response to the slaughter of Christians in Palestine, Egypt and Iraq. Hundreds of thousands of Christians have been slaughtered and driven from their homes in Iraq – over half a million by some counts. This is the oldest Christian community in the world dating back to the time of Christ. What was Obama’s response to this atrocity until a group of Yazvidi along with the Christians were trapped on a mountain side, and politics dictated he had to make some gesture. His response was to do and say nothing. Silence. Even his statement announcing minimal action to save the Yazvidi and the Christians mentioned the Christians once in passing while devoting a paragraph to the obscure Yazvidi.
What this unfeeling and cold response to the slaughter of Christians tells us is that Obama is a pretend Christian just the way he is a pretend American. What he is instead is a world class liar. That is because his real agendas are anti-American, anti-Christian, and anti-Jewish, and obviously and consistently pro America’s third world adversaries to whom he is always apologizing and whom he is always appeasing. Obama lies about his intentions and policies because he couldn’t survive politically if he told the truth,
The socialist plot against individual freedom called Obamacare was sold as a charitable attempt to cover the uninsured (which it doesn’t), to lower health insurance costs (which it doesn’t) and to allow patients to keep their doctor and their plan (which it doesn’t). What it actually does is to take away a major piece of the freedom that Americans once enjoyed — the freedom to choose their plan and their doctor, and not to have the government control their health care or have easy access to all their financial information.
This devious, deceitful, power hungry administration is just as James Woods described it. But it is also a mounting danger for all Americans. Thanks to his global retreat, the terrorists Obama falsely claims are “on the run” are in fact gathering their strength and their weapons of mass destruction until a day will come when they will cross our porous borders and show us what years of perfidy not only by Obama but by the whole Democratic Party have wrought.
