POSITIVISM AND INTELLECTUAL COWARDICE: AMERICA’S KRYPTONITE

October 29th, 2016 by

By Michael Gaddy

“As long as it is admitted that the law may be diverted from its true purpose–that it may violate property instead of protecting it–then everyone will want to participate in making the law, either to protect himself against plunder or to use it for plunder.”  ~Frederic Bastiat

Positivism is the legal philosophy that laws need not pass any type of muster such as adherence to a constitution, justice, fairness or the laws of humanity, sometimes better known as Natural rights, to be binding and enforceable on the citizens of the affected country. The belief that law is whatever the legislature proposes, the executive signs and the judicial approves, or in other words, law is whatever the government says it is, has been the precursor to the most tyrannical and heinous regimes in history. Soviet Russia, Nazi Germany, Mao’s China and Kampuchea under Pol Pot are prime examples. It is not mere coincidence that positivist regimes eventually involve mass execution of the innocents at the hands of those in charge of the government.

Bastiat wrote the quote that began this article something over 160 years ago; so how was he able to see with such clarity the type of oppressive government we have in America today? How did he know that “…everyone will want to participate in making the law…?” How does the government get those who are the most adversely affected by its policies to “participate” in the creation of laws that basically enslave them while destroying their Natural rights?

The history of the past 60 or so years in our country alone illustrates how easy it is for the government to entice everyone to participate in making laws and regulations that are the very basis of the destruction of their individual liberties. All that is required is either an emotional or a financial attachment to the actions of that governing body.

A great example of financial attachment to government is the wonderfully failed Ponzi scheme known as Social Security. This odious piece of progressive, socialistic legislation has had to be revamped (read bailed out) over 20 times since its inception. Yet, if one were to judge from the political ads on TV, even the so-called “conservative” Republicans support overwhelmingly the continuance of an obviously failed concept. Republicans and Democrats are more than willing to financially obligate our posterity to this program because they believe they should be able to recover their investment made over many years, even though they had no choice in the matter. Had these same people lost their money in real estate or the stock market, to whom would they look for satisfaction? Tyrannical government perpetuates itself with the mistaken belief that it “guarantees” a return on monies seized by force and coercion from the masses.

Obviously, an openly despotic government that continues unabated in its destruction of our personal liberty, watches our every move, reads our emails and texts, sends our loved ones to die and be maimed in unprovoked wars, places us and our posterity in smothering debt and dictates how much water goes into our toilets is acceptable as long as we believe it owes us some money; money that will be stolen from our grandchildren, plus operating expenses of course.

While the financial aspect of wanting to be involved with and even support out of control government is understandable, possibly the most virulent form of support comes through the emotional channels. First of all is the polarization of factions within our country. The government is continually promoting hate and distrust among various groups. These can be political, race-based, religious based polarization or perhaps even heritage based differences. There is hardly anyone alive who would not embrace an unconstitutional act or law by our government if it was thought that act or law would be used against those we emotionally oppose.

(In theory) Republicans would gladly support any act or law that would depose our current president while any Democrat would have been equally as happy if the act or law had gotten rid of Bush. Blacks would gladly support legislation that would help them get even with the white oppressor and whites would be equally content to bring down those who believe they are owed a living because their ancestors of 150 years ago were slaves.

Author Andrew Napolitano accurately describes Positivism thusly:

“No matter how ill-advised, unnatural, or immoral; how unlawful, unconstitutional, or hateful; how biased, self-serving, or fraudulent; under Positivism, the majority that lawfully controls the government lawfully gets its way.”

The one emotion the government cherishes and uses more than others is FEAR! They keep the populace on edge with threats of terrorism from groups that our tax dollars have created and financed. We are engaged in a never-ending war on terror, yet how many are even aware that the Director of the National Security Agency (NSA) under Ronald Reagan, General William Odom, recently stated the following: “[B]y any measure the U.S. has long used terrorism. In 1978-79 the Senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism – in every version they produced, the lawyers said the U.S. would be in violation.”

Now, of course, we face the threat of deadly viruses known as Ebola or Zika. Every news broadcast cites more and more the need for alarm and government mandated vaccinations. Does it concern anyone that the U.S. Department of Health holds a patent on an Ebola Virus? Here, take a look for yourself. Does it bother anyone that the Rockefeller Foundation owns the patent on the Zika virus? Seeing as how patents routinely cover inventions, what does this say about the US Department of Health, the Ebola virus and the Rockefeller Foundation and the Zika virus?

Now, for Intellectual Cowardice and how that plays into the mix: What is the definition of Intellectual Cowardice and how does that relate to how people rationalize their support of unconstitutional, tyrannical government?  Intellectual cowards are most often champions of Positivism which is simply Progressivism or Neoconservatism with lipstick. Seeing as how their religion is based on the principles of whatever the government says is gospel, their only arguments must be grounded in emotions rather than intellect.

When challenged on those beliefs with ideas, possibilities based on history, verifiable facts or our Constitution and Bill of Rights, the Positivist/Progressive must resort to emotional responses since their position is completely devoid of intellect. We have all encountered their patented responses. Ad hominem attacks are their weapon of choice. Anytime facts and evidence cannot be countered with intellect, the Positivist/Progressive seeks to destroy facts with emotionally based name calling. The most common are, conspiracy nut, racist, homophobe, Neoconfederate and the ever popular, anarchist. Once those magical words are uttered, the discussion is over in the mind of the Positivist/Progressive/Neocon.

We can succumb to the siren song of comfortable living espoused by the Positivist/Progressives until such time as our government, like all governments before it, becomes completely despotic. Positivist/Progressives/Neocons live quite comfortably supporting laws that take from others and destroy liberty until such time the government they support realizes the absolute need for concentration camps, firing squads, forced mass inoculations, and large ovens.

If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair” ~C.S. Lewis

WORKING WITH THE BAMBOOZLED.

By Michael Gaddy

Over the past few decades, I have learned of the dangers of contesting on intellectual grounds those who have a firm emotional opinion on any subject, especially on those of a political nature. I have witnessed the vitriol firsthand, up-close and personal. Similar criticisms have come rushing to the forefront again as I face those who have taken great exception to my lack of support for Donald Trump. One critic even went so far as to say that I was “letting” Hillary win. Never knew I had that kind of influence.

I wrote a series of questions for folks in which I asked “when the election is over” what will you do then? One man wrote that if his vote for Trump did not work out as planned that he would embark on a letter writing campaign to members of Congress. When I asked him to please provide evidence that tactic or strategy has ever worked, he became quite profane and broke off the email exchange. Oh, the vagaries of adolescence. All too many folks find it impossible to move beyond the concrete stage of human development.

I have devoted quite some time to providing an explanation of why I do not support Trump for those who are stuck on an emotional or religious attachment to government and the wild belief that one person can change the political mess which has metastasized into a life-threatening disease, not only in our country but the entire world.

So, I will endeavor to make this analogy, although I am uncertain as to whether logic, even at this level, will be able to penetrate the ecclesiastical mindset harbored by so many toward government.

Imagine if you will that you developed while taking into consideration many failed attempts, a recipe for the perfect soup. You wrote down this recipe and even started your own business specializing in this soup. As you branched out your now successful business, you insisted that all who worked for you followed this recipe for soup to the letter—no additions—no subtractions.

A few years pass and you become aware that some of your business locations are not doing as well as you had hoped. A thorough investigation into why this was happening reveals that the store manager was adding or subtracting ingredients from your recipe and customers were not liking the end product. So, you fire the manager and replace him/her with the admonition the new manager strictly adheres to the mandates of the recipe. You go so far as to have them take an oath that they will do as directed in this regard. But, your competition down the street at several locations is able to buy off several of your managers and have them constantly change the recipe so as to promote their businesses and steal your customers.

Therefore, you do a wholesale change in the management at those locations. You, incorrectly believe the answer to your problem is to replace your management team and bring in more new employees. Unfortunately for you, these new people succumb to the temptation and accept your competitor’s money and fail to follow the original recipe you worked so hard and long to create.

Finally, in disgust, you forget even asking new employees to follow the original recipe and just try to find anyone who will keep the doors open to your businesses. Predictably, your business continues to fail and you are on the precipice of complete and total bankruptcy. But–you continue to believe if you could just find one good manager who would not give in to the temptations of money and power, you could turn this thing around. You have placed more value on the manager than you have the recipe that brought you success in the beginning. You have forgotten your success depended on strict adherence to the dictates of your original recipe and that even good managers when they could be found, were not successful operating on their own. Good managers who did not follow the dictates of the recipe were as unsuccessful as the bad managers who were bought off by your competitors.

Now that I have most people thoroughly confused, let us replace the recipe in the above scenario with our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Let us also replace the “managers” with elected officials and government employees. It makes little to no difference which “managers” you hire or elect, if they do not follow the dictates of the recipe to the letter, your business will fail. We haven’t had an elected or appointed manager who followed the recipe to the letter in over 150 years but somehow we believe if we could just find the right person, even if they didn’t follow the recipe, our business (government) would flourish. This belief has destroyed the Republic that was bequeathed to us by our forefathers.

If we have the tiniest chance of turning this rapidly sinking ship around, our only hope is to return to the original recipe, our Constitution and Bill of Rights, place the entire emphasis on those, along with the principles of our Declaration of Independence, and quit worrying about hiring a good manager. When we do select a person to manage the affairs of state, it is imperative we find one who will follow the dictates of the recipe to the letter, one who is totally familiar with the original recipe and not for a manager who is the lesser of two evils. This plan will offer our only chance of enjoying the fruits of Freedom and Liberty.

Of all of the things that I see posted every day about Donald Trump, there is seldom if ever any mention of him being even remotely aware of the ingredients required to make the desired soup. (Our Constitution) Yet, since he is not the other candidate for manager, we will hire him and HOPE somewhere along the line he stumbles upon the original recipe. Good luck with that!

As I have asked several of my critics, please show me where your business plan has ever been successful? What is it Einstein said about insanity? Was it the fact those who try the same failed business plan over and over, each time expecting a different result are, in fact, insane?

People, until we return to the mandates of our Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence, it matters not who sits in the Whitehouse, in Congress or in the Supreme Court. The soup will always be rancid and unpalatable.

As long as the bamboozled reign supreme in this country, we will continue to swirl down the drain of history. A totally failed experiment in Freedom and Liberty, not because the recipe was bad, but because the people themselves didn’t care about the recipe as long as their chosen candidate gets elected to manage the store. In this regard, the “winners” will always be the “losers.”

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

(Believe me), I understand Mike’s frustration as the people in Mass, are a perfect example of insanity! It seems to me that y’all have been watching too much TV and are under the influence of your commie education. It is strange to me that anyone regardless of their education would not know by pure instinct that our government is the epitome of tyranny and no where close to what they claim to be. You can wipe your ass with the constitution because the International Investment Bankers own this shit hole we are so in love with. Not until these scumbags are in hell will you ever be able to design and control a government for freedom loving people. The more people we have, the more impossible it is to please every one, and that’s why they are opening the borders for every scumbag on earth. They have divided you with diversity, multi culturalism, and false doctrine of every imagination from the get go. They know damn well that doctrine, “ is the glue” that holds a society together! I wrote about the divided churches and governance long ago, and was proven correct by the division in both America and the Christian churches.                                     What you believe, is what you are!

Take a little of everything in your pantry and make a soup, you will find it impossible to swallow, and if you can, it will make you sick!

A CONFLICT IN THE MIND

October 25th, 2016 by

10-18-2016-9-32-40-am

By Michael Gaddy

“There is nothing new under the sun, but there are lots of old things we don’t know”~ Ambrose Bierce

To say I have been heavily involved in the movement for Constitutional government, Liberty, and Freedom for the better part of three decades would pretty well cover the subject of this rant.

A very wise man once defined Freedom as “a mind free of conflict.” Perhaps this would explain a great many of the folks who while claiming to be “conservatives” find themselves in constant disagreement with those who support our Constitution and Bill of Rights, as ratified–in its entirety–not just the parts that happen to be popular at the moment. This was well illustrated with those on the political right who became most vocal in support for the Second Amendment but seem to forget there are nine other amendments that are equally important.

A prime example of the mind in conflict paradigm are those on the political right who speak and write frequently of the principles of Nullification, yet stand proudly and recite the Pledge of Allegiance; a catchy little incantation written by a defrocked, socialist minister who composed the pledge in part to support the anti-nullification theories embraced by Abraham Lincoln, Karl Marx, and Adolf Hitler. “One nation…indivisible” is totally contradictory to the intent of our founders as the theory of a national government was repeatedly voted down in favor of a Constitutional Republic at the Convention of 1787. As can be readily seen, the pledge is itself in conflict for it mentions both a Republic and an indivisible Nation, political ideals which are diametrically opposed; one embracing nullification and the other denying it.

Interestingly, the phrase “under God” was added during the McCarthy communism scare era in 1954, but somehow the fact the author of the original pledge was himself an avowed socialist seemed to have escaped historical examination.

Pledging allegiance to a symbol, as opposed to a founding creed or Declaration is also characteristic of a nationalist form of government; the huge displays of German flags containing a Swastika during Hitler’s reign are certainly representative of this type of nationalistic worship and devotion.

This is why Hitler referred favorably to the policies of Abraham Lincoln in his seminal work, Mein Kampf. Both tyrants were violent opponents of Nullification and States’ Rights. Consequently, both were also willing to kill hundreds of thousands of innocent people in order to accomplish their political goals.

The Left Liberal in America, who most often finds political refuge and consolation in the Democratic Party, readily embraces a theory of mind in conflict when they expound that government should have as its goal the extension of welfare, education and morality throughout our country. As stated in our Declaration of Independence, government was “instituted among men” to secure their rights, not to provide social justice; something that does not exist in nature.  Here we find the bottom line to our overwhelming debt; no amount of money can purchase that which does not exist, but Left Liberals will never be convinced of this axiom because they feel much more than they think.

So-called Right Conservatives have fallen prey to the exact freedom killing dynamic; emotion over intellect when confronted with the villain du jour paradigm which has been in vogue in the Republican Party for several decades. The government provides the necessary villain; Manuel Noriega, Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden, al-Assad, Putin, al Qaeda, al Nusra, ISIS or Muslims in general to elicit the correct fear response. When activated, this fear-driven reaction leads to rampant Nationalistic flag-waving fervor and a willingness to send unlimited sons and daughters, along with all the money that can be printed or borrowed in order to secure something else that does not exist in nature: security.

Forgotten in the rush of emotions are all historical facts and cause and effect doctrines. There is a government inspired boogeyman under my bed–somebody please do something! The government which has created this problem then offers the solution, and of course, they are the only entity that can, in theory, accomplish the required goals. This solution will require copious amounts of taxpayer dollars and sons, fathers, brothers, sisters, mothers, and daughters in uniform, a good portion who, if they return, will never be the same, especially mentally. Wave that flag, Elmer!!!!

The above is a perfect example of the Socialist Hegelian Dialectic in practice.

My final example of the mind in conflict for this rant will center on the government who sends its children off to war and cares not if they are left behind in the hands of the enemy they went to fight.

There is irrefutable evidence; evidence in our National Archives and other government facilities which proves our government not only left tens of thousands of our military personnel in the hands of their enemies and created huge bureaucratic mazes to obscure the fact our government was complicit in leaving them there, but also by telling family members and this country’s citizens they were no longer alive.

  1. Hundreds from WWI, in the hands of the Russians
  2. At least 22,000 in the hands of the Russians after WWII who were “liberated” from the German POW camps and taken by troop trains to Siberia and other locations. FDR and General Eisenhower knew they were taken and did nothing so as to not upset our Russian allies. General Patton may have been killed for his knowledge of this fact, that and the powers that be had prolonged the war for a year or more in order to allow the Russian agents who had subverted FDR’s administration to secure most of Europe. Regardless of how one looks at it, the real winners in WWII were the Soviets. If you doubt that compare the land area and governments they controlled before the war with what they controlled after. For those who poo-poo such thoughts, a few hours spent with the book, Stalin’s Secret Agents: The subversion of Roosevelt’s government, should give you pause. Not only was the U.S. government penetrated at the highest level by these enemy agents but this organized Communist network also apparently controlled key positions in the U.S. opinion-molding business. (read the news media)
  3. Over 8,000 left in the hands of the Communist Chinese and Russians at the end of the Korean War. So, Eisenhower’s name appears again in this issue; this time as president. From CNN, Sept. 1996: “The public didn’t know about those left behind, but it is clear that Eisenhower did. Five months after the war, in a document dated December 22, 1953, Army Secretary Robert Stevens met with President Eisenhower and told him the Defense Department had the names of 610 Army people and over 300 Air Force prisoners still held by the North Koreans. A number of people confirmed the reports, citing their own experiences. Retired Colonel Phillip Corso, a former intelligence aide to Eisenhower, watched the exchange of prisoners at Panmunjon, and talked with some of those who came back. “Our own boys told me there were sick and wounded American boys not 10 miles from the camp, and they were not exchanged,” he said.”
  4. Those left behind in the hands of the Communists after Vietnam (North Vietnamese, Chinese, Pathet Lao, and Russians.) As explained by Col Millard Peck, who ran the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) POW/MIA office in 1989-1991, “The issue is being manipulated by unscrupulous people in the Government, or associated with the Government . [they] have maintained their distance and remained hidden in the shadows. this issue is being manipulated and controlled at a higher level, not with the goal of resolving it, but more to obfuscate the question of live prisoners and give the illusion of progress through hyperactivity. From what I have witnessed, it appears that any soldier left in Vietnam, even inadvertently, was, in fact, abandoned years ago, and that the farce that is being played is no more than political legerdemain done with “smoke and mirrors”, to stall the issue until it dies a natural death.” And from former POW, Captain Eugene “Red” McDaniel, “I was prepared to fight, to be wounded, to be captured, and even prepared to die, but I was not prepared to be abandoned.”

For the better part of three decades I have been called a conspiracy-nut, in need of a tin-foil hat and a lot of other things that could not be mentioned in polite company. But, being a hard-headed Rebel by birth, I just keep on keeping on.

I will leave you as we rapidly approach Veteran’s Day 2016 with a simple question: What about a government that would leave its fighting men behind in the hands of our enemies to be tortured and/or killed, then lie to cover it up for almost a century, would lead anyone to believe this same government would not be complicit and cover up their involvement in blowing-up buildings; shooting children and adults in schools and theaters and planting bombs at sporting events in pursuit of their socialist agenda?

WHAT WILL YOU DO WHEN IT’S OVER?

October 22nd, 2016 by

http://www.rebelmadman.com/?p=551

By Michael Gaddy

Well, it is almost over; presidential campaigns began well over one year ago. There were 17 candidates from the Republican side when it started and just three viable Democrats. But, sometime in December, (19th) when the Electoral College submits the results of their votes to the president of the United States Senate, we will have a new president.

So, all of you folks who are going to vote for Trump, primarily because he is not Hillary, what are you going to do if Trump wins? Are you going to go back to sleep and believe that Trump will follow through with all his campaign promises–you know—-like all of the presidents in the past who have made all kinds of promises which fell into the dust of victory and were also soon being rationalized away by those who voted for them? If he doesn’t follow through on those promises, what will you do then? Ignore what happens and just try to rationalize it away and then, if that doesn’t work, trot out the old reliable, “well he is better than Hillary would have been.” How does one quantify that remark? If anyone’s only attribute is they are better than Hillary, then they too are unqualified to hold any position of power and authority over others.

Then, perhaps, the tired old canard of who would be best to appoint new members to the Supreme Court will go through a test or two. Most of the die-hard Trump supporters, you remember, those who claim he will restore constitutional governance, have claimed he will appoint “constitutionalists” to the bench. Where will he find such an animal? Our Constitution as ratified has not been taught in the law schools in this country for many decades. It’s not about what our founders said, or the delegates to the ratification conventions were promised, it is about what previous clowns in black gowns have “ruled” our Constitution means (precedent), which is completely opposite of how Thomas Jefferson and James Madison stated such decisions should be determined. We place so much confidence in a group of people (black-robed oligarchy) whom Thomas Jefferson despised. How did that happen? Was Jefferson wrong and we are much smarter than he was? If the Supreme Court had not usurped its power and was acting within the constraints of the Constitution, why would we place so much importance in them?

What if Trump wins but the Democrats gain control of the Senate or the House? How many so-called conservative Republicans who hold seats in the Congress are really just like Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham and John McCain? What chance will Trump have of getting anything meaningful through Congress when he will find his programs attacked by Democrats and Republicans alike? If Trump is for real, and I personally doubt that, the entrenched cabal that runs our government from behind the scenes will not allow him to upset the apple cart they have been working decades to solidify. If you believe differently, perhaps you could find some time to thoroughly research what happened to JFK when he challenged the military/industrial/banking cabal which Eisenhower warned about in his farewell address, right before JFK took office.

What if Trump wins and the inner cities break out into violence? What if that violence spreads to more rural parts of America. If you think that will not happen, check the social welfare rolls in your county. You might be amazed at the number of people who could/would become very upset if their “entitlements” were taken away. There are currently 41 million people in this country on food stamps. How many live in your area?

What if Trump wins and nothing really changes? Where do you go politically? Do you revert right back to the “acceptable” Republicans like those mentioned above? If not, then where? History tells us that if you will just hang on until 2020, there will be some new hot-shot politician promising you whatever it takes to get your vote. Who will that be?

Hillary was asked very early in the campaign if she could be any president who would she be? She, of course, said “Abraham Lincoln.” While speaking in the black church in Detroit, Trump stated he was honored to be the nominee of the “Party of Lincoln” and wanted to “build the future of the party (Republican) on the legacy of Lincoln.” Just a small question here: If Lincoln is really Hillary’s presidential idol and Trump wants to build the party on the legacy of Lincoln, where is the difference?

All those folks who claim to support the principles and ideals of the South and fly their Confederate Battle Flags and state they are going to vote for Trump have some “splaining” to do, Lucy. I can’t imagine trying to explain to my Confederate ancestors who left their homes and families to fight against the “legacy of Lincoln,” why I voted for a man who claimed his intention to build on that legacy.  So, what is really more important to the people of the South, standing by principles or voting for a candidate who is not Hillary?

The greater majority of the folks who will vote for Trump voted for Romney and Ryan in 2012 and for McCain and Palin in 08. What about those folks judgment in picking good candidates for president and VP should I trust? Would they be supporting Jeb Bush with just as much spirit had he prevailed over Trump? How can I trust their judgment? But, they would tell me—-he is better than Hillary!!

Now, where do you turn if Hillary wins? Is there any chance at all that new groups like the Tea Party and 9/12 groups will see a resurgence? Will they sell out to the Republican Party again if they do? Where else could they turn? What if it becomes obvious the election was stolen? Who do you depend on for action, the government, The FBI who aided Hillary, or the media that helped steal the election? Good luck with that! Don’t forget for a moment that Hillary has the support of the Neocon branch of the Republican Party. How many of those have you voted for?

What if five decades or more of voter ignorance is about to totally destroy this country? Will more voter ignorance make it better? McCain was opposed in 2008 by Ron Paul who is the closest thing to an “Originalist” when it comes to our Constitution anyone has seen in their lifetimes. You smart folks went for McCain. Now you realize he was a warmongering liar. How were you fooled into supporting him over Ron Paul? Ah, Ron Paul didn’t have an acceptable foreign policy which can be translated as he didn’t support unconstitutional, tyrannical wars. Why did you vote for McCain anyway?

In 2012, the voters again rejected constitutionalist Ron Paul in favor of Willard Romney who wasn’t any different from Obama philosophically. You Second Amendment folks fell all over yourselves voting for the only presidential candidate who had signed an assault weapons bill into law. Why did you vote for him? How can I trust those of you who voted for McCain and Romney when you tell me I must vote for Trump?

Many of the people who are telling me for the sake of the country I must vote for Trump are the same people who were telling me in 2008 that I needed to drop my support for the constitutionalist candidate (Ron Paul) and vote for John McCain. Then in 2012, they were insisting I vote for Romney because their philosophy was “Anybody but Obama.” Are we not in the same place with the same tenet that I should vote for Trump because he is not Hillary?

Sadly, I do not believe I will live long enough to see an election in which the candidates are supported because of their knowledge and support of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. It will not happen because the majority of people in this country allow the bought and paid for media to direct what issues are germane to the election process. Besides that, most folks have no concept of what the people of the various ratifying conventions were told the limits on the Constitution were. Many believe that if they carry a little book on the Constitution in their pocket, by osmosis, the knowledge of why that document is important will be absorbed by their brain. After all, for many years folks could not differentiate between a constitutionalist and a Republican.

While I am in great admiration of Donald Trump for exposing the hypocrisy and mendacity of the media and the Neocons within the Republican Party, I hardly find that justification for voting for him for any public office. While I also refuse to vote for the spawn of Satan, like the last four presidential elections I will be forced to sit this one out. But, I will enjoy watching the weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth when the new president is finally seated.

While Trump is certainly not Hillary, neither are over 300 million other Americans. There has to be a constitutionalist somewhere within that vast number. Why don’t we know who they are and why aren’t we voting for them? Short answer: the masses don’t care!

THE ONLY AMERICAN CANADATE

October 21st, 2016 by

OLDDOGS PLEA TO THE SOUTH

Folks the amount of history articles I have read in the last ten years must be in the tens of thousand, and REBELS VERSUS TYRANTS: A PERPETUAL FIGHT FOR LIBERTY has been the most inspiring since the first time I read it. Mike is beyond doubt the most gifted author I know, and a southern gentleman extraordinaire. If you also love the South and your freedom I am pleading with you to go to the polls and enter Michael Gaddy as your candidate for President. There is no other person I have even heard of who has a smidgen of his freedom spirit, intelligence, memory recall, and writing ability. Few men in America even come close to his knowledge of American History and the importance of defending and repeating it to the younger generation. Granted, it may do no good, but both candidates running are globalist to the core, which is beyond doubt the total destruction of freedom. The two party system is the epitome of evil and only by standing up and making a bold statement will we ever get their attention in DC. Our infatuation with entertainment over the last fifty years has come back to bite us in the throat and we are bleeding out, as few are left who will stand up and fight back. Mike will fight until the very end, and you can be assured of that. He will also change the education system so the next several generations will grow up with the knowledge our children are now being denied. He alone will adhere to the principles of freedom from tyranny in government. If you think this will only be throwing your vote away, you are far behind in knowledge of our present circumstances. VOTES DON’T ELECT, YOU FOOLS, THEY ARE APPOINTED. THE ELECTION SYSTEM HAS BEEN UNDER THE BANKERS CONTROL FROM THE GET GO. Casting a vote for Mike is just letting them know the next step is going to be kicking ass. Besides that, if you are a real southerner, it is your duty to let the bastards know they are now on a short lease.

 REBELS VERSUS TYRANTS A PERPETUAL FIGHT FOR LIBERTY

http://www.rebelmadman.com/?p=532

Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worse state, an intolerable one.” ~ Thomas Paine

Down through the pages of time, governments have done that which they do best; they transform from necessary evil to intolerable evil. Our country has followed in those footprints and has become as tyrannical as their predecessors. Also, traversing the annals of history are those with uncompromising principles and an unquenchable thirst for freedom and liberty. I truly believe it is genetic. History tells us this unusual breed of man has been referred to most often as Rebels. He is often rebelling against tyranny masquerading as a strong centralized government. Imagine if you will the last scene in the movie Braveheart in which with his dying breath William Wallace screams “Freedom.”

As hard as it is for most folks whose strongest attachments are to the worship of government, this country owes its founding and very existence to a band of Rebels who bore the names of Hancock, Revere, and Adams, among others. Major John Pitcairn of the Royal Marines admonished those brave souls on Lexington Green who had the audacity to challenge the most powerful force on the planet by the name Rebels when he ordered them to “disperse.” Being the stalwart men they were, they refused a direct order from those in charge. Today, the majority of people in this country would condemn the actions of the Rebels as subversive and would have referred to Major Pitcairn as a “hero” who was just doing his duty. After all, he was wearing a government costume!

Then, in 1861, the people of the South rebelled against one of the most evil tyrants in history as they resisted the Yankee invader of their homes and firesides. 94% of those who took up arms to defend their states, families, and homes did not own slaves, yet revisionist court historians have painted them all as racists in order to legitimize their crimes. Ironically, it was the Rebels of the South who embraced the Constitution and Bill of Rights against Lincoln and the Radical Republicans in Congress who were working diligently to destroy them both.

After the surrender of Robert E. Lee on April 9, 1865, the tyrannical government of Lincoln, Charles Sumner, Thaddeus Stevens and William Seward, imposed martial law and the horrors of the Reconstruction Act of 1867 on the people of the South. This epidemic of treason and tyranny would be known as Reconstruction. To ensure the Rebels learned their lesson and future generations would look upon those who dared to resist the forces of a government which had become “an intolerable” evil, the Radical Republicans sent legions of “Carpetbaggers” and other useful idiots into the South to teach these Rebels a lesson. The government “of the people, by the people and for the people” referenced by Lincoln in his Gettysburg Address did “perish from the earth,” at least the earth of the South. (It had long since perished from the earth of the North under Lincoln) The Radical Republicans sent large numbers of faithful servants and sycophants into the South to take over the education of the young. The children were commanded to sing songs glorifying the Yankee cause and its servants. The children were also ordered to pray for the Yankee government each day. Just as General Patrick Cleburne had predicted, almost immediately the children of the South were taught “the history of the heroic struggle” was being taught by their enemies, and through “the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, and our maimed veterans as subjects for derision.” This paradigm continues still today.

The Yankees also sent new ministers to the churches throughout the South during Reconstruction to preach the Yankee sermons and to pray for the Yankee cause and to teach the people to repent from their Rebel proclivities.

Senator Charles Sumner, in eulogizing Lincoln, said the Gettysburg Address was more important than the battle itself. Others eulogized Lincoln as “Of the noblest personage,” comparing him to Jesus Christ. But, I believe a more accurate assessment of Lincoln and the Gettysburg Address came years later from H. L. Mencken when he wrote,

“The Gettysburg speech is at once the shortest and the most famous oration in American history. Put beside it, all the whoopings of the Websters, Sumners and Everetts seem gaudy and silly. It is eloquence brought to a pellucid and almost child-like perfection—the highest emotion reduced to one graceful and irresistible gesture. Nothing else precisely like it is to be found in the whole range of oratory. Lincoln himself never even remotely approached it. It is genuinely stupendous.

But let us not forget that it is oratory, not logic; beauty, not sense. Think of the argument in it! Put it into the cold words of everyday! The doctrine is simply this: that the Union soldiers who died at Gettysburg sacrificed their lives to the cause of self-determination — “that government of the people, by the people, for the people,” should not perish from the earth. It is difficult to imagine anything more untrue. The Union soldiers in that battle actually fought against self-determination; it was the Confederates who fought for the right of their people to govern themselves. What was the practical effect of the battle of Gettysburg? What else than the destruction of the old sovereignty of the States, i. e., of the people of the States? The Confederates went into battle an absolutely free people; they came out with their freedom subject to the supervision and vote of the rest of the country—and for nearly twenty years that vote was so effective that they enjoyed scarcely any freedom at all. Am I the first American to note the fundamental nonsensicality of the Gettysburg address? If so, I plead my aesthetic joy in it in amelioration of the sacrilege.”

Yes, Mencken too was a Rebel, albeit a literary one. He had the vision to see through the veils of civic religion and hypocrisy and to write the truth.

So, how does a government morph from a necessary evil created to protect the rights of the individual to an intolerable one of totalitarian proportions? It requires a majority of the people to accept a world in which their government becomes a proxy religion. It must especially envelop those who claim to be Christian as well as those who call themselves humanitarians and those who are considered, according to Tolstoy, as “nice and kind.”  Tolstoy speaks of this paradigm as a problem in psychology. He states to get these people to “commit the most heinous crimes without feeling any guilt” these “good Christian folk” must be made into governors, superintendents, officers or policemen.” By becoming servants of the government, these people can completely ignore their blatant acts of hypocrisy. By accepting “something that goes by the name of government service” this allows these pillars of the community to treat people of other countries and their own fellow citizens “like inanimate objects, precluding any humane or brotherly relationships, and, secondly ensures that people working for this government service must be so interdependent that responsibility for any consequences of the way they treat people never devolves on any of them individually.”

Tolstoy nails it. What better example than the “law enforcement” officer who enforces unconstitutional, immoral laws on his fellow man, taking their lives if they resist while claiming “I don’t make the laws, I just enforce them.” And “if you have a problem with that take it up with the courts.” Therefore he/she can then claim to be good “public servants” while completely ignoring their responsibilities to society which was included in their sacred oath to “uphold and defend” our rights against “all enemies foreign or domestic.” How many of them will then assume the mantle of Christian, humanitarian or a nice and kind neighbor? Of course, judges and prosecutors will use the very same excuse when taking people’s money and freedom, claiming, of course, they too do not “make the laws.”

Then for the politicians who also deviously refer to themselves as public servants. My life’s experience has taught me the most dangerous of these are those who claim to be Christians. A great example, other than George W. Bush, who claimed God told him to invade Iraq which led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands, has to be a current candidate for Vice President named Mike Pence. First of all, he demanded the government aid the destruction of religious liberties in Indiana reference the demands of homosexual activists and corporate bullies. His support for Common Core flies in the face of those who oppose that program on principle. Also having taken a sacred oath to uphold and defend our Constitution and Bill of Rights, Pence voted for the Patriot Act on several occasions and also voted as a globalist instead of a representative of the people who elected him. He consistently voted to fund the UN and the Import-Export Bank, both of which destroy our country’s sovereignty. Most revealing, this professing Christian, voted to veto an amendment to the Defense Appropriations Act that would have blocked Obama from illegally and unconstitutionally detaining American citizens without due process. Probably the most truthful thing Pence has said during the campaign is that he would model his vice presidency after Dick Cheney. Rebels throughout this country should be cringing inside knowing that if elected this man will be a “heartbeat” away from the presidency. But the majority of the species Ignoramus Americanus will judge him not by his record but how well he does debating a socialist clown by the name of Kaine. No true Rebel will ever vote for the lesser of evils, knowing full well evil can not be quantified and evil in any amount is the destruction of all he holds dear.

Rebels are the outcasts of a society as revealed by Tolstoy, but throughout history, Rebels have stood firmly for liberty and freedom and have stood steadfast on those principles in the face of monumental opposition. Undoubtedly, that is why they and their symbols are seen as apostate to those who embrace government as their god.

I stand as a proud and unreconstructed Rebel defending the principles of Liberty. Where do you stand?

Let them call me Rebel and welcome, I feel no concern from it; but I should suffer the misery of devils were I to make a whore of my soul by swearing allegiance to one whose character is that of a sottish, stupid, stubborn, worthless, brutish man.” ~ Thomas Paine, The Crisis.

Declaration Of Law – by Judge Anna von Reitz, Alaska

October 20th, 2016 by

By Anna von Reitz

The instigators kidnapped and press-ganged the people and the land assets of the Continental United States by force, fraud, and deceit into the foreign international Jurisdiction of the Sea. Our own employees did this while taking a paycheck from our hand. They cannot claim that they were “at war” with us. They were merely criminals committing fraud against their benefactors and employers.

The members of “Congress” stand notified that they do not represent the Continental United States nor the People of the Continental United States. They have not occupied their lawful public office and have acted instead to occupy private “similarly named” corporate offices at both the “federal” and the “state” levels. They have no public capacity whatsoever and no valid contract obligating any American State Citizen to obey any law, code, treaty, regulation or other legislation promoted as an “Act” of “Congress” in while failing to occupy public office and failing to act as responsible fiduciary officers.

The members of “Congress” stand further notified that they and the corporations they represent have no Lawful contract with any individual American State Citizen born on the land of the Continental United States and that all claims, liens, titles and presumptions against the living people and their assets on the land stand null and void ab initio for fraud, all the way back to April of 1862.

The members of “Congress” stand further notified that as presently constituted and operating, they have no public authority related to the Continental United States and exercise only the power any corporate entity has, so long as it acts lawfully and within its charter—-which is to say, the authority to organize their actual employees, set standards for behavior within their own corporation, and perform the functions stipulated by their charters and law-abiding commercial contracts.

The Governors of the Federal “State” franchises are similarly notified and placed under Public Lien, required to release all color of law titles and liens registered under conditions of fraud against the Continental United States assets.

The Joint Chiefs of Staff stand notified that they are obligated under the Geneva Convention Protocols of 1949 as well as The Constitution for the united States of America to come to the aid and assistance of the civilian populace of the Continental United States and to protect the civilian population and its assets at all costs and to prosecute those who have willingly violated Volume II, Article 3, of the Geneva Convention Protocols seeking to change the birthright citizenship and nationality of American State Citizens of the Continental United States by fraud, force, and coercion.

The Joint Chiefs are also under obligation to return all civilian property unharmed and unencumbered to the rightful civilian owners, to remove all color of law titles and false liens against the labor and other private property assets of American State Citizens rightfully belonging to the land jurisdiction of the Continental United States.

The Joint Chiefs are fully and hereby notified that no commercial corporation on earth has the lawful ability to declare war and that the actions engaged in by the “Congress” and the “President” are merely the actions of a private corporation engaged in police actions and mercenary activities that must be closely scrutinized for conformance to international military law and with due respect for the actual Constitution for the united States of America and the citizenry of the Continental United States.

 Barack Obama is hereby given Notice that he is merely an executive officer of a private, mostly foreign-owned for-profit governmental services corporation, not a Head of State, not eligible to represent the people of the Continental United States, and not empowered to obligate them to any military action or commercial contract. Any attempt on the part of Barack Obama or members of “Congress” to attack American State Citizens using commercial mercenary forces (NHS, BATF, NSA, FEMA, CIA, DIA, IRS, etc.) is to be immediately countered with arrest of those responsible.

The Secretary of the Treasury and the INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE are under Public Lien and demand to unblock all civilian public trust accounts and make available the entire balance of the National Credit (an amount equal to the National Debt, plus principle and interest) for the use and investment of individual Americans without constraint, excuse, or further obfuscation. This Public Declaration establishes irrevocable lien upon the assets of the United States Treasury and the International Monetary Fund and all subsidiaries and successors of the former Federal Reserve System and upon all Federal State franchises.

The Secretary General and General Secretary of the United Nations are both Notified and Given Fair Warning and Notice that the FEDERAL RESERVE and THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, two corporations recently organized under the auspices of the United Nations City State by the UNITED NATIONS, INC. are already in Breach of their Charters and acting as criminal syndicates on the shores of the Continental United States, willfully seeking to defraud the living inhabitants of these peaceful States, and to exercise unlawful control over the citizenry and their assets.

The North American Water and Power Alliance is under Public Lien and is herein identified as the recipient of purloined credit owed to the Continental United States and the Citizenry thereof, due and owing, and is under demand to unblock all individual Capital Credit accounts for the use of the American State Citizens who have been systematically defrauded and indebted resulting in the establishment of these credit accounts in their “NAMES” but retained in the control of local utility companies and the NAWP.

All fraudulent convertible debt resulting from the semantic deceits and misuse of deceptively similar names applied to people and legal fiction entities is recognized as embezzlement of credit, willful identity theft, inland piracy, currency manipulation, obstruction of bankruptcy, and as unlawful restraint of trade accomplished by personage and enforced by barratry by the perpetrators of these schemes whether foreign or domestic.

The Continental United States retains the right to prosecute claims against any and all legal fiction entities and living people responsible, the right to void all contracts in default, all titles held under color of law, all actions undertaken under conditions of semantic deceit or constructive fraud, all self- interested claims of “foreign immunity”, all restraint of trade or Natural rights owed the citizenry of the Continental United States, and all encroachment on its jurisdiction.

OLD JACK HINSON AN ACCIDENTAL TERRORIST: SPECIAL REPORT

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

Well folks I turned 76 today (10 19 40) and have finally found my kindred spirit. If I could wake up tomorrow with Mike’s brain I would consider it the same as waking up in heaven. Men such as him should be our Nations leaders, but I guess they are too few and far between. You would do well to emulate him. Although I do not have his intelligence, memory recall, and a host of other abilities, I do have his conclusions. Such as, all men should be willing to die for their freedom from tyranny, and have the ability to recognize it when forced upon him. There is no other way to live a happy life and be a productive citizen. Both of which is something we all should have the opportunity to pursue. If men with morals and intelligence like his were common, there would be no wars, no hunger, no tyranny, no financially destitute,  and all people without his ability would have their needs met from an economy that produced enough employment for everyone. If you doubt my words, compare his articles to any past and especially the present CEO of America INC. Does it not bother you that you are owned, and controlled by some far off Investment Banker who you have never known? Does it not embarrass you to tears to have obtained your present age and have never know these facts, when they have been available from the get go? Are you not humiliated beyond imagination to have been beguiled your entire life into worshiping a non existing government which made you complicit in all this mess. Do you even understand what I am telling you this very moment? In case you are waking up or just pissed off enough by my words that you want to see for your self if it’s all true? You can do that right here!

 OLD JACK HINSON AN ACCIDENTAL TERRORIST

http://www.rebelmadman.com/?p=548

By Michael Gaddy

What is the point of no return? What could possibly happen to an individual that would cause them to abandon all sense of order and seek instead violent and deadly revenge against another human being or group of people, many of whom are personally unknown to the perpetrator(s) of violence? Is this human action a devotion to some fanatical practice of religion or simply a reaction to violent stimuli?

If religious fanaticism is the answer, is it possible such religious fervor exhibited in the acts of the “terrorist” creates in its opponent an overwhelming desire to abandon their professed religion? If we are truly fighting a war against radical Islam, is it OK to abandon the tenets of Christianity, a faith professed by the great majority of the so-called conservatives who support the perpetual war for peace paradigm of our government? If that has actually occurred, have the radical terrorists not already won the war? What else could constitute acceptance of the deaths of hundreds of thousands; many of them civilians, to prosecute wars we know are based on lies hatched in the halls of our own government and nurtured to maturity by a state-owned and controlled media?

This past week I read an email written by a professed man of the cloth writing in support of one of his military heroes who is credited with killing several hundred of our “enemy” as a sniper. His statement was “we can only imagine how many soldier’s lives were saved by this man’s actions.” Unwittingly, this preacher struck at the very core of the issue. To support the actions of a government we personally claim to abhor when it comes to our individual liberty, imaginations must be employed in order to salve our collective conscience as we go about supporting wars perpetrated on government lies, deception and propaganda.

It has been stated facts are the basis for rational thought, therefore supporting wars based on official government prevarication that creates more terrorists than it eliminates requires irrational thought and/or a very healthy imagination. Supporting these wars that make slaves of us and our posterity could only qualify as some form of mental illness. Could this be the exhibition of the Stockholm syndrome on a national scale with the government as kidnapper and the citizens the kidnaped?

Only a people suffering from such an affliction could believe that a people who lose those they love such as those killed in drone strikes on wedding parties could ever embrace the tenets of our government or our faith. It is really hard to accept a “democracy” when the promoters of that form of government killed your family and blew up your country.

Over 70% of the people who died so far in Iraq as the result of our war were civilians. What kind of hate and desire for revenge resides in the relatives of those civilians? Where in our religious beliefs is there any justification for such mass genocide? We euphemistically refer to these deaths as “collateral damage,” while the people in Iraq referred to them as family, friends, and neighbors.

“Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do you even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets,” rings rather hollow, does it not?

The history of America contains similar stories and reactions to the violence of war inflicted on the innocent.

John W. (Old Jack) Hinson just wanted to be left alone. As a farmer in Tennessee, he cared nothing for the war between the North and the South and even opposed secession. He just wanted to get on with his life, enjoy his family and farm his land.

At some point in time, the area around the Hinson farm was occupied by Union forces. Occupation by armed forces in any area is not unlike occupying someone’s home by force. It just doesn’t sit well. The occupiers don’t want to be there and the occupied resent their presence. Perfect ingredients for an act of violence.

Somehow, Hinson’s two teenage sons came to be at odds with the Union soldiers. The reports of the day indicate the soldiers accused the two boys of being bushwhackers. Subsequently, the soldiers killed the two boys, beheaded them and placed their heads on poles near the entrance to their father’s farm. I’m sure the man of the cloth previously mentioned above would defend such action claiming he could only imagine how many Union soldiers lives were saved by this heinous act. After all, were these Union soldiers not wearing the uniform of the same military that now occupies much of the Middle East?

Obviously, Old Jack Hinson was traumatized by the death and beheading of his two sons. His hatred and desire for revenge led him to have a special long-range rifle constructed and he then set out to avenge the death of his sons by becoming a sniper, directing his assaults on the occupying army that had taken the lives of his sons. According to available records, at no time did Hinson engage civilians in his quest for revenge. His preference gravitated to Union officers in uniform.

I’m absolutely positive the US government and Union forces saw Old Jack Hinson as a “terrorist” or “insurgent” as he went about summarily killing more than one hundred Union soldiers and was also credited with single-handedly capturing a Union transport ship. Union Infantry and Cavalry forces and a specially equipped marine task force tried in vain to locate and eliminate Old Jack Hinson, who by all records always operated alone and was able to elude all Union forces for the duration of the war, even though he was near 60 years old at the time.

Occupying forces wearing the uniform of the United States military have created hundreds of thousands of civilian casualties in the wars being prosecuted in the Middle East. If only a small minority of their family and friends have the dedication and resolve of Old Jack Hinson, we have created a whirlwind of violence that will last for decades. Now, many officials in our government, supported by the pleas of plastic talking heads in the media and academia want to bring those people to our country and pay them money when they arrive. Where, indeed, is a better definition of insanity?

It is imperative that we understand that wars for empire, barely concealed by the rhetoric of wars to implement democracy, are in truth unwinnable on any level. As a supposed “Christian” nation we must also come to the realization that blind patriotism and Christianity are totally incompatible.

Perhaps a movie glorifying the exploits of Old Jack Hinson would constitute a beginning of understanding! How many would stand and cheer?

“Of all the enemies to public liberty war is, perhaps, the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. War is the parent of armies; from these proceed debts and taxes; and armies, and debts, and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the domination of the few. In war, too, the discretionary power of the Executive is extended; its influence in dealing out offices, honors, and emoluments is multiplied; and all the means of seducing the minds, are added to those of subduing the force, of the people. The same malignant aspect in republicanism may be traced in the inequality of fortunes, and the opportunities of fraud, growing out of a state of war, and in the degeneracy of manners and of morals engendered by both. No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.” ~ James Madison said by many to be the Father of our Constitution (Emphasis added)

“Continual warfare” and freedom cannot exist on the same plane. The last 15 years of continual warfare and the subsequent loss of Liberty and the creation of a police state unequivocally prove Madison’s warning to be true.

In our last article entitled, “Did Hillary Sacrifice the Benghazi Heroes for Money?” we wrote this:

“That the mainstream news media purposely ignores these associations and questionable past can only be construed as being complicit in a conspiracy with Hillary Clinton, or her handlers, in what appears to be a potential plot to take over America from the inside and hand it over to the world ruling class and the bankers.”

The ruling class (all politicians), mega corporations and central bankers are the globalists. Hillary is a globalist and does not care one whit about national sovereignty, or American exceptionalism, much less the U. S. Constitution. She and Bill only care about power and money and increasing that power and money by any means. Laws are only a minor inconvenience to them that can be overcome by buying off the government, law enforcement and the media, each co conspirators in the Clinton’s crooked game. Government is for sale to the highest bidder for Bill and Hillary. But then, government has always been for sale to the highest bidder since government was invented over 5,000 years ago. The only thing that keeps government from becoming corrupt and succumbing to the highest bidder is the people. But history has shown that most people don’t care, so they get corrupt government by their own in-action.

But it is even worse than what we describe.

We just received a report stating that the world debt now stands at $152 Trillion, a totally un-payable debt. Some experts put the total world debt at $230 Trillion. It is reasonable to assume that the total debt does not include massive unfunded liabilities for future promises made by the politicians in exchange for votes, especially in America and Europe. Balance the total world debt against a nominal World Gross Product (WGP) of $75 Trillion. As many have said, the debt is unsustainable. There is no economy on the planet big enough to pay off this debt, even America’s. The governments of the planet are bankrupt and their only answer is to add more debt by central bankers printing more worthless money. (Debt is just another word for slavery.)

Some of the debt comes from wars, but most of the debt is caused by the use of public money (taxes) in exchange for votes for left-leaning politicians, politicians who discovered that they could stay in power by exploiting human weakness with “other people’s money.” It’s called socialism, or more correctly, the “full employment act” for liberal politicians.

As Maggy Thatcher said ….. “Socialism works until it runs out of other people’s money.” The world has run out of other people’s money and is only left with debt, a debt that can only be paid by seizing all of the people’s private assets, if the debt is ever to be re-paid. Government will eventually seize those assets and the people won’t stop the government because the people are, for the most part, cowards.

But when the debt bubble bursts, massive famine and World War III are distinct possibilities. After the famine and wars are over, the globalists will then move in to seal the deal on one-world-government and some form of communism or socialism will be the new government, unless of course the cancer of radical Islam doesn’t kill us off first. With the weapons of mass destruction that now exist, it won’t be hard to keep the world population in control (enslaved), by whatever form of world government is finally created. If you will remember, after World War II, world governments created the United Nations, the first step to globalization. What will be created after World War III?

Besides globalism, the threats to freedom and American sovereignty just keep coming. In the title we mentioned that, “Radical Islam will kill us.” The move to infiltrate Islam and Sharia law into the American institutions of government is well underway and has been for some time. The Trojan horse implementing this infiltration is the Muslim Brotherhood, an organization that has been supported by none other than Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, the closet Muslim President of the United States. The Muslim Brotherhood is already well entrenched in North America.

From one source we learned that: “The Muslim Brotherhood is an Islamic organization founded in Ismailia, Egypt by Hassan al-Banna in March 1928 as an Islamist religious, political, and social movement. Al-Banna was a schoolteacher, to promote implementing traditional, religious, Islamic, Sharia law into government and a social regression based on an Islamic ethos of altruism and civic duty, in opposition to what he saw as political and social injustice and to British imperial rule. The organization initially focused on educational and charitable work, but quickly grew to become a major political force as well, by championing the cause of disenfranchised classes, playing a prominent role in the Egyptian nationalist movement, and promoting a conception of Islam that attempted to restore broken links between tradition and modernity.”

The Brotherhood’s ominous mission statement is quite clear:

“The process of settlement is a ‘Civilization-Jihadist Process’ with all the word means. The ‘Ikhwan’ (the Islamic brethren, a Wahhabi religious militia) must understand that their work in America is a kind of grand jihad in eliminating and destroying the Western civilization from within and ’sabotaging’ its miserable house by their hands and the hands of the believers so that it is eliminated and God’s religion is made victorious over all other religions.”

The American group CAIR (Council on American Islamic Relations) has direct ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and supports the radical Palestine terrorist group, Hamas, a group funded by terrorist-exporter Iran and followers of the Muslim Brotherhood. Based on CAIR’s history, “its major goal seems to be silencing and de-legitimizing its critics.”

But the attack on America doesn’t stop there. American communists/socialists have taken over the unions and the Democrat Party. Many members of Congress are card-carrying members of the Communist Party and its many affiliates, like the Democrat Socialists of America (DSA). At least 11 members of Congress that we know of are members of the DSA. To-wit: “John Conyers [Chairman of the Judiciary Committee], Tammy Baldwin, Jerrold Nadler, Luis Gutierrez, Melvin Watt, Maxine Waters, Hank Johnson, Steve Cohen, Barbara Lee, Robert Wexler, Linda Sanchez [there are 23 Democrats on the Judiciary Committee of which eleven, almost half, are now members of the DSA].” These Congressmen and women are outright communists and have influence over American public policy and legislation.

To understand where the DSA is coming from, one only needs to read Article II, “Our Purpose”, of the DSA Constitution:

“We are socialists because we reject an economic order based on private profit, alienated labor, gross inequalities of wealth and power, discrimination based on race and sex, and brutality and violence in defense of the status quo. We are socialists because we share a vision of a humane social order based on popular control of resources and production, economic planning, equitable distribution, feminism, racial equality and non-oppressive relationships. We are socialists because we are developing a concrete strategy for achieving that vision, for building a majority movement that will make democratic socialism a reality in America. We believe that such a strategy must acknowledge the class structure of American society and that this class structure means that there is a basic conflict of interest between those sectors with enormous economic power and the vast majority of the population.”

Bernie Sanders garnered millions of votes, mostly from naive millenials, touting the socialist/communist line. Bernie’s early history included meetings with Russian and Nicaraguan Communists. The Democrat Party and Hillary moved radically left to capture Bernie voters.

The Revolutionary Communist Party has been instrumental in fomenting agitation in places like Oakland, New York City, Missouri, Ferguson and Baltimore over the alleged shootings or mistreatment of Blacks by police. The communists and the socialists can only survive by participating in the breakdown of civil society. But they can also survive by having socialist policies passed into law by government institutions, like the U. S. Congress.

Wealthy socialist Progressives like George Soros, have funded the Black Lives Matter movement to the tune of millions of dollars, a movement that has taken the honored tradition of peaceful protesting to the next level, anarchy. The Black Lives Matter movement is just a re-birth of the radical Black Panthers.

Hillary and Bill Clinton and much of the Democrat Party are tied directly to globalism, radical environmentalism, the climate change fraud, Black Lives Matter, communism, socialism and the Muslim Brotherhood, which seek to overthrow and “fundamentally transform” America (Obama’s exact words) into a third-world socialist nation that will be forced to knuckle under to a world ruling class elite, made up of politicians, central bankers and industrialists.

So much of what we have written here has been documented in a Movie entitled, “Enemies Within.” The Movie was written and produced by Trevor Loudon and directed by moviemaker Judd Saul of Iowa. Executive Producers include Dennis Jackson and Kyle Kyllan. Rush Limbaugh, Glen Beck and several other conservatives, have promoted this powerful, revealing Movie.

We have paraphrased the DVD Trailer for the Movie: “Enemies Within zooms in on the best-kept secret of modern politics. Almost no one is aware of the fact that fewer than 20,000 U. S. communists, socialists and extreme ‘Progressives’ are able to influence the politicians and even write the laws that control the lives of over 300 million Americans. They have infiltrated the Democrat Party and the unions, they have used their lackeys in the Congress to ram through a radical socialist, communist and a union agenda, they have severely eased voting requirements and engaged in voter fraud, they have introduced mass educational indoctrination and have gutted our military.”

We have seen the Movie in its entirety and even with all we know about what is going on, we came away shocked to the core. If even half of what is exposed in the Movie is true, it spells the end of America, as envisioned by the Founders, if one of the people they document in the Movie, Hillary Rodham Clinton, becomes president of the United States.

If you are truly interested, and you should be, you can order the DVD HERE. We encourage every one of our readers to take the time to view the Movie, before the election, if at all possible.

We further encourage each and every reader to forward this article to everyone on his or her list, well BEFORE THE ELECTION. Time is of the essence. We know that Trump is not a perfect presidential candidate by any stretch, but Hillary Clinton will fundamentally destroy America with malice aforethought and with a crooked smile on her face and disdain in her heart. America will be conquered by globalism under a Clinton Monarchy. And as we all know, Bill and Hillary will profit handsomely from the destruction of America’s sovereignty and freedom.

On the other hand, Trump may actually be able to save America from the slide into socialism and global slavery. He may even be able to vigorously stir the pot and disrupt the establishment so bad, that the slide will be stopped in its tracks. At this point, what do Americans have to lose, except just about everything?

But then of course, if no one does ANYTHING, the globalists WILL enslave us and radical Islam will go on KILLING us.

We have put together a LIST OF CONSTITUTIONAL DEMANDS to government that if not met, all the things we predict in this article will come to pass. At that point the only viable alternative left to free Americans is the solution provided by the Declaration of Independence.

Please let us know that you FORWARDED the article. Constructive comments are welcome.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

Everyone keeps asking, how do they get away with all the crap they are shoving down our throats as though it has not been going on for a hundred years or more. I keep telling people it’s simply because the government is a CORPORATION,  operating under the UCC – Law of the Sea, and not under COMMON LAW, which makes them more or les free to do any damn thing they want, because there is no one to oppose them, indict them, or prosecute them. In short it is not a Constitutional Government like everyone thinks. Have you ever heard of a corporation that allows all the employees to vote for the higher offices? OBUMA IS THE SITTING CEO OF THE UNITED STATES INC. And he was appointed by the board of directors of the corporation, so if you want to call that voting go ahead because nothing is going to convince you of the truth you don’t WANT to believe. The next CEO is going to continue following the orders of the Board of Directors just like all of our so called Presidents have, regardless of what you believe. If they want Hillary in the office there’s not A DAMN THING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT, BECAUSE OVER HALF OF THIS COUNTRY IS A BUNCH OF GOD DAMNN IDIOTS. Remember this, the Declaration of Independence is useless when the majority of the people is too damn stupid to fight for their freedom, and will turn on the people who will. Just try organizing a resistance and watch the sleaze balls defend their celebrities. But then again, dying for what is right is a hell of a lot better than being a damn coward.

THE SPECIES IGNORAMUS AMERICANUS

October 18th, 2016 by

http://www.rebelmadman.com/?p=546

By Michael Gaddy

The evil that is in this world almost always comes of ignorance, and good intentions may do as much harm as malevolence if they lack understanding.” ~ Albert Camus

For quite some time now I have referred to the majority of Americans, especially those who vote, as the species “Ignoramus Americanus.” Some have taken exception to this, but, so far they have been found guilty of assuming facts not in evidence.

This morning, on social media, there was a posting which stated, “If a 12-year term limit was ratified today, 227 members of Congress would not be eligible for re-election. Time to clean up DC! Do you agree? The absolute insanity of this post is overwhelming to anyone with a basic understanding of how government and voting are supposed to function.

Perhaps this post would have been better stated thusly, “Please help me, for decades now I have voted for the lesser of two evils and now the resulting evil is destroying everything I hold dear. Would everyone please ratify an amendment to our Constitution which would enable me to protect myself and those I care about from my own ignorance and cowardice!”

Another post on social media came from someone who claimed that a vote for Donald Trump was a vote to restore our Constitution and Bill of Rights. A simple question to the one who posted this claim asking documentation of when Trump has discussed in detail any limits the Constitution and Bill of Rights places on government actions, especially the Executive Branch, or how any of his opponents promises are outside of constitutional limits, went unanswered.

Completely overlooked, especially to those who claim to support the principles of the South, was Trump’s promise to the people in the black church in Detroit: “Becoming the nominee of the Party of Abraham Lincoln — a lot of people don’t realize that Abraham Lincoln, the great Abraham Lincoln was a Republican — has been the greatest honor of my life. It is on his legacy that I hope to build the future of the Party but more important the future of the country and the community.” (Emphasis mine)

If this statement alone does not scare the bejeezus out of any person who claims any fealty at all to our Constitution and Bill of Rights, we as a relevant country are well on our way to extinction. No president in the history of this country did more to destroy the principles of our Constitution, Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence than did “Honest Abe.” The current occupant of the people’s house in the District of Criminals and his eight years of mendacity can’t hold a candle to Lincoln’s full frontal assaults on the government of Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, James Monroe, John Taylor of Caroline and others of our founders who stood for Liberty and Freedom.

Abraham Lincoln perpetrated war on the people of the North as well as the people of the South. All too many, thanks to revisionist history, are unaware of Lincoln’s military invasions of the states of New York, Maryland, Missouri, and Delaware. This was done to achieve military control of the voting process and oppose lawful dissent. Today this is not needed as the voters opt for tyranny on a regular basis every two years at the voting booth.

The sordid 12 years of history known as “Reconstruction” set the template for the total destruction of any government operating within the framework of “consent of the governed.” This was all perpetrated on the people of the South by the “Party of Lincoln” which Donald Trump is so honored to be a part of. Obviously, his knowledge of our Constitution and Bill of Rights is severely limited as is his knowledge of history.

I have had people who have defended Trump’s remarks to the black folks in Detroit as necessary to gain their votes. Wow, if anyone supports a candidate they know will lie to gain votes, how does that separate them from the liberal progressives they claim to despise?

How about my Southern brethren? How many of them will vote for a candidate who promises to bring them the government of Lincoln they have been writing and complaining about for 150+ years? Possibly, as one Magna Cum Laude graduate of the college of institutionalized ignorance wrote to me recently, “Well, I guess your criticism of Trump means you are a Hillary supporter!” No, I am not a supporter of the female spawn of satan in a jumpsuit, but as a true Southron I cannot despoil the sacrifices of my ancestors by voting for a candidate who has promised to bring me and my fellow Southerners a replica of the government they fought and died to protect their homes, country, and progeny, from assuming control of their lives, property, and fortunes.

So, what to do, exclaims the right-wing of the species Ignoramus Americanus? Well, folks, behold the end result of supporting political party over the principles of our founders for the past five or six decades. Have you not noticed the candidate you avidly supported for Vice President just four short years ago is not a “conservative” but is indeed just as bad politically as the man who won that election? Have you perhaps noticed the man you swore “kept you safe” for eight years, the brilliant man who claimed God told him to invade Iraq, is not the wonderful conservative you thought he was? Has he and his family not embraced the aforementioned female spawn of satan for the office of president? Ask yourself, how could you have been so blind to support him and his draconian, unconstitutional government for eight years? Are you not using the same criteria you used to vote for him now in your support for Trump? Four or eight years from now, if this country still exists, will you be asking yourself the same questions about Trump you are now asking about Ryan and Bush?

Only the institutionalized ignorant could believe that voting for a candidate who has little to no concept of the history and restraints of our Constitution and Bill of Rights will somehow magically produce constitutional governance with its attendant principles of Liberty and Freedom. Dream on broomstick cowboy.

One of my favorite writers in defense of Southern principles and history is Clyde Wilson. Here, in his words, are some of the reasons that define how we got in this mess in which a candidate who promises to bring to us the horrors of Lincoln is the best we have to choose from for the highest office in the land. Pay heed–professor Wilson nails it.

“Always, if you possibly can, avoid singing the praises of people who

—launch aggressive wars unrelated to national defense and in callous disregard of the suffering of innocents: Attila the Hun, the first French emperor, the chancellor of the German Third Reich,  U.S. Presidents Lincoln, McKinley, Wilson, Clinton, Bush II, etc.

—spend profligately and burden future generations with immense debts: the U.S. Congress.

—deliberately misuse and undermine the vital foundational principles and texts of a society: the Supreme Soviet, the U.S. Supreme Court, televangelists, the Hague Tribunal, etc.

—systematically distort and misrepresent public events and persons with malice aforethought:
Joseph Goebels. Pravda, U.S. television news, multicultural historians, etc.

—glorify selfish, immoral, vulgar, and decadent behaviour: U.S. entertainment media and professional sports industry.”

Ah, the total impossibility of being ignorant and free. Jefferson said it was impossible, but Ignoramus Americanus is determined to prove him wrong.

IN RIGHTFUL REBEL LIBERTY

Dear Folks, Have you ever wondered just why and how America has become such a shit hole after we were promised a wonderland of freedom by our so called wonderful Constitution? Have you ever wondered why and how our so called representatives get away with passing laws that take our freedom of choice away and rob us of our money? May I humbly suggest that you do some more research and find out how all these things are possible without the scumbags going to jail! You can do that by reading more of Mike’s articles and Anna von Reitz. Then you can get busy and inform everyone you know and inspire them to do the same. You see folks, as long as you ignore things they just get worse because the bastards you think you elected don’t work for us. They work for a corporation that rewards them for their loyalty while we get the crap laws that destroy our life. Get this through your head, they are only loyal to their masters; the International Investment banking Cartel who are the major stock-holders of the present corporation that keeps going bankrupt and restarting under a new name. Anna has documented the whole ball game and all you have to do is READ IT! She has also worked out how to rebuild our Nation States without going to war. Now, don’t go back to your stupid TV show!

Cancel your voter registration ASAP

October 17th, 2016 by

. . . FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!

https://anticorruptionsociety.com/2016/10/15/cancel-your-voter-registration-asap/#more-11231

10-17-2016-10-54-21-am

Permission is granted for redistribution if linked to original and AntiCorruption Society is acknowledged.

What we are now witnessing in the media is the Presidential Dog and Pony Show of 2016 designed to get Americans convinced that their lives will improve if only ‘their’ guy would get elected.

For many years American voters have gone to the polls, selected what they thought was the lesser of two evils, pulled the lever in the voting booth and hoped for a change.

In spite of what Clinton, Bush, and Obama promised in their election campaigns, the only changes we have gotten over the past twenty years were for the worse. More jobs have been lost, more rules/restrictions have been implemented and we now find ourselves living in a surveillance state whereby the only real terrorists are illegal immigrants and our own police. Did you know that after 9/11 Israeli loyalists paid for law enforcement personnel to travel to Israel and learn how to treat the general public as terrorists?

Here are seven reasons why voting in American is a waste of time:

1.) Presidents are CEO’s of the federal corporation who are “selected” by the Bilderburgers – they are not “elected” by the people. They are puppets for the international bankers and they must implement anti-American globalization policies (like GATT and NAFTA) on their behalf.

2.) The other so-called representatives people supposedly vote for have to promise favors to raise enough money for their election campaigns. This system is accurately referred to as “pay to play politics”. Consequently nearly all those seeking office are compromised from the get-go.

3.) Once elected, the so-called government representatives work for the interests of the city, county, state or federal corporations. They are obligated to function within their corporate charters, which allow them to set up huge rainy day funds called CAFRs. They do not work for the people and merely use the general public as a source of revenue for their own goals.

4.) Our political system is rigged to prevent third party candidates from winning. It is designed to keep the Hatfields (Republicans) and the McCoys (Democrats) doing battle as a distraction while the banksters continue to loot the country.

From the Banker’s Manifesto of 1892.

“History repeats itself in regular cycles. This truth is well known among our principal men who are engaged in forming an imperialism of the world. While they are doing this, the people must be kept in a state of political antagonism.

“The question of tariff reform must be urged through the organization known as the Democratic Party, and the question of protection with the reciprocity must be forced to view through the Republican Party.

“By thus dividing voters, we can get them to expand their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us, except as teachers to the common herd. Thus, by discrete action, we can secure all that has been so generously planned and successfully accomplished.”

5.) The voting process itself was seized by the people’s enemies quite awhile ago. Most voting machines can be electronically hacked. And, according to the author of VoteScam, James Collier (see: Voting is a Scam) the media reports the winners based on the wishes of insiders and there is no real way for the public to verify the results of any election.

6.) Congress has no real power. The so-called “agency network” (450+) and their attorneys run the country during a national emergency. The people do not elect the heads of these so-called agencies. They are all political appointees and none of them work for the people. Our country has been in a prolonged state of “national emergency” since 1933.  See: Senate Report 93-549

7.) Lawyers run the country, not the elected representatives. As Yale law professor Fred Rodell exposed back in 1939 in his book Woe Unto You, Lawyers!

“It is the lawyers who run our civilization for us – our governments, our business, our private lives. Most legislators are lawyers; they make our laws. Most presidents, governors, commissioners, along with their advisers and brain-trusters are lawyers; they administer our laws. All the judges are      lawyers; they interpret and enforce our laws. There is no separation of powers where the lawyers are concerned. There is only a concentration of all government power – in the lawyers. As the schoolboy put it, ours is “a government of lawyers, not of men.””

Why you need to cancel your voter registration

It is not enough to merely stop wasting time in a voting booth. There are presumptions built into being a registered voter.

Initially when you registered to vote, it is presumed that you believed in our form of government (a Democracy) and wanted to participate.

When you vote, it is presumed you still believe in our form of government (a Democracy) and still want to participate.

The Secretary of State for each state keeps a list of registered voters. Thus, they know how many people in their state approve of our form of government (a Democracy) and still wish to participate.

When you registered to vote, you volunteered to define yourself as a US Citizen, as only “US citizens” are eligible to vote. However, when you volunteer to be a “US citizen” you are actually defining your political character. According to the “Federalism” doctrine that CEO Bill Clinton brought into our world by signing Executive Order 13132 in 1999:

Section 2

(d) The people of the States are free, subject only to restrictions in the       Constitution itself or in constitutionally authorized Acts of Congress, to          define the moral, political, and legal character of their lives.

Defining your political character as a US Citizen creates the presumption that all of the rules, restrictions, regulations and UCC codes of the commercial corporate government – no matter how inane – apply to you.

Some claim we obligate ourselves to the current commercial legal system with our Social Security number, however getting a Social Security Card is required by employers before they are willing to hire us. We are coerced into complying.

Others say we obligate ourselves to the current commercial legal system by using Federal Reserve Notes. But, since we have no alternative currency with which we can pay our utility bills, we comply out of necessity.

However, there is no coercion nor necessity involved with voter registration. It represents a purely voluntary choice to define your political character as a US Citizen.

If you are a registered voter you have nothing to gain by maintaining that status and a lot to lose.

Canceling your voter registration

So, how do we cancel our voter registration and kill the presumptions it represents?

The National Voter Registration Act of 1993 “allows the removal of a registrant’s name from the list of eligible voters, provided the information is confirmed in writing by the registrant.” It is not difficult to locate the appropriate government office to notify, as the United States Election Assistance Commission has compiled a directory identifying the entities to contact for each state.

This is the process I would use:

Step 1

Locate the appropriate entity to notify by clicking on the Election Assistance Commission’s Election Directory for Cancellation Notices.

Here are the cancellation ‘rules’ in the Ohio Revised Code:

3503.21 Occurrences resulting in cancellation of registration.

The filing by a registered elector of a written request with a board of elections, on a form prescribed by the secretary of state and signed by the elector, that the registration be canceled. The filing of such a request does not prohibit an otherwise qualified elector from reregistering to vote at any time.

If you don’t have access to a computer, just call the office of the Secretary of State in your state. They will be able to tell you what is needed.

Step 2

Do an online search for a cancellation form for the location on the list that applies to you. If you cannot find the form, contact the entity listed in the directory and request one.

Example of voter registration cancellation notice for Ohio

Step 3

Fill out the form, sign it and make a copy for your records.

NOTE: On the cancellation form for LA County, there was a non-citizen box to check. On the Ohio form there was not. So as I live in Ohio, I wrote the following above my name:

“This cancellation represents a declaration of my non US citizen political status.”

Step 4

Mail it in.

To nullify the only truly voluntary action we take to obligate ourselves to the commercial entity currently called ‘government’ – is a very important first step towards regaining our unalienable rights.

AND THEY CALL ME A CONSPIRACY NUT

October 16th, 2016 by

www.rebelmadman.com/?p=544

By Michael Gaddy

*Author’s note: I wrote this article several years ago but find it to be relevant today as well. If our government stays true to form there will soon be another False Flag event in this country to take Ignoramus Americanus’s mind off the fact we are totally broke and this election, which is being turned into a modern-day soap opera (entertainment), has been choreographed by the power cabal known as the military/industrial/international bankers/national security complex. This government has been involved in more conspiracies against its own citizens, including the military than most are aware. Here are some of the most egregious.

“For you see, the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.” ~Benjamin Disraeli

“The real rulers in Washington are invisible and exercise power from behind the scenes.” ~Justice Felix Frankfurter

“The three aims of the tyrant are, one, the humiliation of his subjects; he knows that a mean-spirited man will not conspire against anybody; two, the creation of mistrust among them; for a tyrant is not to be overthrown until men begin to have confidence in one another — and this is the reason why tyrants are at war with the good; they are under the idea that their power is endangered by them, not only because they will not be ruled despotically, but also because they are too loyal to one another and to other men, and do not inform against one another or against other men — three, the tyrant desires that all his subjects shall be incapable of action, for no one attempts what is impossible and they will not attempt to overthrow a tyranny if they are powerless.” ~Aristotle

I openly admit I do not believe our government or their media lapdogs when it comes to what really happened involving TWA 800, the Oklahoma City Bombing, 9/11, Waco, the shootings in Aurora or Sandy Hook, the bombing in Boston or the bombing at the fertilizer plant in Waco and many other of their False Flag operations.

Sure, the easy way out is to believe anything the government says is gospel; that requires very little cognitive discourse and of course the last thing Boobus wants is anything that might require the use of a few cells in the gray matter. Not when there are sports on TV.

There are a multitude of reasons I disbelieve our government and the media when it comes to events such as those named above, but, for brevity’s sake, I will mention only one in this writing. What positive can be said or what integrity granted to a government that willingly leaves its military personnel behind in the hands of the enemy, then, not only makes no attempt to gain their freedom but instead fabricates lies to cover their crimes of omission and discredits those who attempt to reveal the truth? A government that would leave its military personnel behind to face torture and death at the hands of their enemy is totally undeserving of not only trust but even the slightest benefit of the doubt.

This pattern of overwhelming and continuous mendacity relating to our Missing in Action and Prisoners of War began almost 100 years ago in 1920. Shortly after WWI, Russia was in the midst of a terrible famine. Although previously denying they held any American POWs from WWI, when offered food and medicines, the Russians released 100 captive Americans after the first shipment of provisions. Although more food was shipped to Russia, no additional POWs were released. Rather than admit to their lack of diligence in securing the release of those POWs after the war, government officials simply declared there were no more being held; a tactic that would continue for decades.

In 1945, while marching to take Berlin, in large part due to political/military considerations granted to the Soviets by the socialist dominated FDR administration, some 25,000 American POWs were “liberated” into the hands of the Russian Army. Of that 25,000, only 4,165 of our military personnel were actually repatriated from the camp at Reisa. The Russians put the remaining 21,000+ on troop trains and took them into Russia where they were used for slave labor, medical experiments, human guinea pigs and other fates much worse than death on the battlefield. Allied political sources then went to work to alter intelligence reports to cover up these heinous acts. Both FDR and Truman issued directives there would be “no criticism of treatment by the Russians” and “no retaliatory action to Russian failure to cooperate.” (Source: A Chain of Prisoners: from Yalta to Vietnam, by John Brown and Ted Ashworth)

General George Patton knew of this betrayal of American military personnel and is reported to have confronted General Eisenhower at a train station in Germany where the argument became most heated according to an eyewitness. (Source: Bert C. Roosen an interpreter on Eisenhower’s staff) Speculation exists that this may have been the reason for Patton’s assassination. (Source: Target Patton: The Plot to Assassinate General George S. Patton by Robert K. Wilcox) Our political leadership fell all over themselves to assure the Russians were never accused of anything untoward and that millions in Eastern Europe were delivered into their hands at the end of the war.

The release of the information about 21,000+ Americans being left to a terrible fate at the hands of the Russians would have been a death knell to any political aspirations of those covering up these crimes; obviously, Eisenhower would have never been elected to the presidency.

As president, Eisenhower would continue to cover up the fate of those left to the Russians which would later necessitate a similar cover-up of those left to the Chinese and North Koreans during the Korean War. These prisoners too were used for torture, biological and chemical agent experiments as well as mind control operations. Colonel Phil Corso, a member of Eisenhower’s White House staff, would later speak to these cover ups. He would state it became a matter of national policy to ignore all intelligence concerning these acts and to simply deny any POWs were left behind.

Then came Vietnam and the madness and deceit would continue. In 1973, after Operation Homecoming, Dr. Roger Shields of the Department of Defense would tell President Nixon, “Mr. President, we have two missing for every man who came back home.” Nixon ignored the statement and then like those lying bastards before him, issued a statement that “all our POWs are home.”

To completely cover the POW/MIA issue would require a volume of books. The mendacity, prevarication and possible assassinations by our government surrounding this subject is emotionally overwhelming; that is if you care one scintilla about what happens to those we blindly send into the jaws of hell for political expediency after being driven into a patriotic frenzy by the same devils who create False Flag events which take the lives of thousands, many of them innocent children.

Hand me my Tin Foil Hat; I wear it proudly. I do not blindly believe the words of master politicians who have never seen a shot fired in anger and who are more than willing to see their fellow Americans not only die in battle but be used for torture and medical experiments after the wars are “over” for others, all in the name of “national security.” Always remember when they speak of “security” it is always their security and never yours they speak of.

If you feel compelled to believe everything the politicians and the lapdog media tell you about Aurora, Sandy Hook, 9/11, OKC bombing and the Boston Marathon bombing because you lack the courage to face the truth, you have become one of the “splendid dupes” mentioned by Chesterton: “Evil always wins through the strength of its splendid dupes; and there has in all ages been a disastrous alliance between abnormal innocence and abnormal sin.”

I find little truth or consolation in the facts presented by a government who would leave its own military personnel in the hands of its enemies to be tortured and subjected to all forms of heinous experimentation. Perhaps if it had been your brother, sister, father, mother, son, daughter, husband, wife, or friend who had been left to this fate worse than death by the government you view as trustworthy, you might not blindly believe everything you hear coming from the mouths of politicians and talking heads on the lobotomy box.

Global Elites Are Getting Ready To Blame You For The Coming Financial Crash

October 15th, 2016 by

By Brandon Smith

Those people that have any doubts about where the narrative is headed for global economic stability simply have not been paying attention lately.

As I pointed out in my pre-Brexit referendum article, Brexit: Global Trigger Event, Fake Out Or Something Else?, the story being scripted by the globalists is one of the “failures and crimes” of conservative movements. I predicted that the Brexit would pass based on this language used by international financiers and elites leading up to the vote.

The vast majority of analysts in the mainstream and in the alternative media refused to acknowledge the possibility that a successful Brexit actually works in FAVOR of the globalists, because it provides them a perfect scapegoat for a financial crisis that has been broiling for years and is now ready to burst into flames. I find still that many people will not dare to consider the idea that a successful conservative resurgence is actually part of the plan for globalist institutions. Many argue that the elites just don’t have that kind of pervasive control over the system, or that I am attributing “too much power and ability” to them.

I find this argument rather naive but also interesting, because many of the people that claim the elites do not have such influence were also the same people that argued before the Brexit that the elites would “never allow” the U.K. referendum to pass. So, do they have extensive influence, or don’t they?  This kind of selective blindness to the game being played prevents a whole host of otherwise intelligent people from grasping reality.

These folks need to finally admit to themselves that they were half right; the globalists would not allow the passage of the Brexit, UNLESS, a successful Brexit actually works in their favor.

In my post-Brexit analysis I said that the meme of bumbling and destructive conservatives and “populists” would continue into the U.S. election, and so far it would seem this is exactly the case. In numerous mainstream articles globalists have been openly telling us exactly what is about to happen.

I find that the same naivety that developed during the Brexit campaign has also developed around the Trump campaign. Too many in the liberty movement will not entertain the idea that a Trump win is in the cards. Yet, the elites are using the same language in reference to the Trump campaign that they used before and after the Brexit.

Bloomberg’s latest report on the annual meetings of the IMF and World Bank showcase numerous warnings by the elites:

The global economy has benefited tremendously from globalization and technological change,” the IMF’s top advisory panel said in a communique released on Saturday after meeting in Washington. “However, the outlook is increasingly threatened by inward-looking policies, including protectionism, and stalled reforms.”

The IMF warned in its latest economic outlook that rising political tensions over open markets and free trade could undermine a recovery already lacking a growth engine.”

In a rebuke to those advocating a turn away from trade, the members of the IMF panel redoubled their commitment to “maintain economic openness and reinvigorate global trade as a critical means to boost global growth.”

Barron’s reiterates the predictive programming, insinuating that a loss of faith in globalism and the financial elites will lead to disaster.

Leaders gathered at the International Monetary Fund/World Bank annual meeting didn’t mention Donald Trump by name this week, but they warned the anti-trade and populist movements fueling his presidential campaign, as well as Brexit, could further slow already anemic economic growth.”

“…Populist movements have not fallen on deaf ears, with German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble noting during a panel on the global economy that: “More and more, people don’t trust their elites. They don’t trust their economic leaders, and they don’t trust their political leaders.”

Globalists are telling us what is about to happen.

I continue to hold to the position I always have — that Donald Trump is going to be ALLOWED into the White House, and that this will be a prelude to economic crisis. The stage is being set for a grand finale to our ongoing financial collapse. The great villain behind the whole disaster will be revealed, and we will be told that the villain is us.

By “us” I mean conservative movements in general, though, the mainstream media and globalist spokesmen refer to us more often today as “populists”, or maybe “deplorables”. Those people who think this brand of “conspiracy” is too far fetched because it requires an inordinate level of political and economic control have not really thought the situation through.

Fact – central banks and international financiers have already created the conditions necessary for economic instability. Fact – these same elites have staved off a larger or more immediate collapse over the past eight years through the use of fiat stimulus measures, market rigging and the manipulation of public perception. Fact – the elites can easily initiate an immediate collapse if they wish by simply refusing to prop up the system any longer. Fact – the elites have showcased the ability to stifle conservative movements in the past through interference and co-option (Tea Party, anyone?). Fact – they can also give conservative movements an opportunity to gain momentum by removing some of this interference.

The truth is, at this point globalists do not need expansive or intricate control over the system in order to cause a crisis or to place conservatives in the historical hot seat. All they have to do is step aside and let the train wreck happen. And, of course, they have to position themselves as prognosticators and saviors once the crisis event occurs.

The argument also arises that “people would never take the bait;” that the masses will not be fooled by the banking cabal into scapegoating conservatives for a crash the elites created. One can only hope. However, possession is nine-tenths of the law in the minds of many, and the mainstream has already conditioned the public with the notion that the mere presence of anti-globalist conservatives in positions of political authority will negatively affect market psychology.

Of course, this notion relies on the admission of certain truths. For example, the globalists would have to admit that the fiscal system they have held together is so tenuous and fraudulent that it depends solely on false public perception and false investor assumptions. In order to blame conservatives for the destruction of the global economy, the elites will have to tell the truth about the frailty of the system before they can lie about who broke it.

This may not matter. When people are facing national or international calamity with the potential to hurt them personally, critical thinking and logic tend to go out the window.

There is also the power of distraction to occupy the minds of the masses while a crisis is taking shape, and what could be more distracting than the Trump vs. Clinton U.S. election? I have to say, I don’t think I have ever witnessed or seen a historical accounting of an election more psychotic than the election of 2016. It is truly the most divisive event in over a century, and this is why I consistently compare it to the Brexit referendum.

The tone is very much the same, with citizens on the Left side of the political spectrum being lured into rallying in support of globalism as if it is a prerequisite to peace and harmony, while citizens on the Right side of the spectrum are portrayed as knuckle dragging isolationist barbarians hell-bent on urinating in the punch bowl and ruining everyone’s global prosperity party.

Brexit supporters were painted as older, selfish, potentially racist and out of touch with the changing times. Brexit opponents were painted as young, educated and victimized by older generations taking away the supposed future benefits of globalism.

Trump supporters are labeled as older, mostly white-centric, uneducated and fearful of the changing times. They just “don’t get” that it’s 2016. Trump opponents are elevated as the academic and worldly class battling to prevent another Hitler.

During the lead up to the U.K. referendum, polls indicated a wide margin in favor of the anti-Brexit crowd and the assumption by almost everyone was that the Brexit would fail.

The lead up to the U.S. election is also rife with polls indicating in most cases a margin of victory for Clinton over Trump. Of course, only a complete idiot would take polling numbers seriously in light of what happened during the Brexit.

The Brexit campaign witnessed what appeared to some to be an unrecoverable black swan event – the killing of British MP Jo Cox. Almost everyone claimed that the murder of Cox by an apparently pro-Brexit assailant meant that the Brexit was doomed (I actually argued that the murder would be forgotten in a week and that the Brexit would pass anyway).

The Trump campaign has witnessed its own kind of “black swan” event with the release of recordings from eleven years ago in which Trump is heard making “lewd remarks” about women. It is surprising to me how many conservatives (let alone liberals) have been declaring Trump’s candidacy effectively “over” due to the scandal. These people are dupes.

Once again, I argue that the Trump tapes will be forgotten in a week and that they have no bearing whatsoever on the election. They are nothing more than bread and circus. Beyond the fact that really, almost no one cares what Trump said a decade ago, I argue that this election has already been decided. I argue that the globalists want Trump in office, just as they wanted the passage of the Brexit. I argue that they need conservative movements to feel as though we have won, so that they can pull the rug out from under us in the near future. I argue that we are being set up.

Again, the elites are openly telling us what is about to happen. They are telling us that if “populists” (conservatives) gain political power, the system will effectively collapse. To what extent is hard to say, but let’s assume that the situation will be ugly enough to influence the masses to reconsider the ideal of globalism as a possible solution. The elites are fond of the Hegelian dialectic and the philosophy of “order out of chaos,” after all.

The only way to counter this developing lie is for liberty champions to first accept the idea that our political victories might be ultimately meaningless and that we are being allowed to take charge of a ship that is already sinking. Only then can we distance ourselves from an exponential fiscal disaster by distancing ourselves from the narrative.

Perhaps I am wrong, and in November we see a dismal Trump performance and a Clinton victory. But if we see a “surprise” Trump election win, just as we saw a surprise Brexit win, then it may be time to consider that the surface of this situation is not what it appears.

Housekeeping 101: “Us and Them” by Anna Von Reitz

12-21-2015 3-19-06 PM

By Anna Von Reitz

Good morning, good evening, good wherever and whenever this finds you all.

I will be doing some extra work for the next few weeks and as a result my ability to publish will be somewhat uneven. This doesn’t “mean” anything, except that I am in meetings and teleconferences and shuttling around from place to place more than normal—-all of which takes time and detracts from communication.

Major funding for the actual government of the people, by the people, and for the people is being discussed and provided for.  As more and more people have awakened and realized the Truth— that the private, mostly foreign-owned governmental services corporation operating out of District of Columbia is not our government and its local franchises are not our states– it becomes evident that reforming or even replacing the governmental services corporation with a new one doesn’t fix the actual underlying problem. 

Read that—  it doesn’t matter if the thing in DC is called the UNITED STATES (INC.) or THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (INC.) or the NEW REPUBLIC (INC.) or CULPEPPER’S FIVE AND DIME (INC.)  It is still just a corporation in the business of providing government services. 

If our new service provider is more sensible and efficient and honest, yippee, but at the end of the day, we are still being “serviced” by a hired staff of foreign lackeys instead of governing ourselves and watching out for our own self-interest.

Imagine that you hired a firm to do all your housekeeping tasks: do the grocery shopping, laundry, cooking, take out the trash, sweep the floors, vacuum the rugs….. and imagine that you were gone for a while (150 years) and in the meantime the housekeeping staff decided, well, what ho?  Might as well move into the house, sleep in the beds, eat the food, use the credit cards…..

That is what has happened here.

So as a result of having pushed your credit cards over the limit and numerous other horrendous abuses of your power and mischaracterization of you, the housekeepers responsible are being kicked out and new housekeeping companies are competing to take over the contract.

There are no lack of wannabe replacement service providers.  SWISSINDO is funding one group and Jacob Rothschild is funding another and there will be more vying to be recognized as Successor to Contract.  This is because our Forefathers gave away control of our currency, our trade policy, and our foreign policy to their servants, the British inhabitants, who were hired to provide us with “essential government services” after the Revolutionary War. 

The odious debts accrued by the former housekeeping service can be written off, but the fundamental problem remains. They aren’t us.  It’s wacko for any nation (or as in our case, group of fifty nations) to rely on foreign subcontractors to preserve their currency, dictate their trade policies, and set their foreign policy. 

This is “why” our money has been grossly devalued, why our industry has suffered, and why we have been kept at constant war for the better part of 200 years.  One housekeeping company after another has abused its position of trust, and unless we take action in our own behalf, that is the natural result of abdicating our oversight responsibility and not controlling our employees.

Restoring Checks and Balances requires a reorganization of the actual states occupying the land jurisdiction and also a reorganization of the counties giving rise to the states.  It requires unincorporated counties and unincorporated states functioning under the Law of the Land, instead of the Law of the Sea. It requires a clear grasp of who you are and who they are.

A change in service providers is normally chaos enough, and you will necessarily see “offers” with this group and that group promising to clean up the mess in DC and promising to abide by and honor the “Constitution”—without, of course, mentioning which constitution they might be talking about.

The important point to keep in mind is that even though these people appear to be Americans, once they cross the line and become employees of the “federal corporation” they are not functioning as Americans.  They are not us.

The further point to remember is that we have a duty and responsibility to ourselves and our country and our progeny to ride herd on them and do a good, efficient job of it.  That means enforcement of the Public and Organic Law on our soil. That means running our own townships and parishes and counties as unincorporated business structures.  That means running our states as unincorporated business structures, too. 

The Alaska State is the actual state operating the land jurisdiction of Alaska; the State of Alaska and the STATE OF ALASKA and ALASKA and any other permutation the rats can dream up, are just corporations in the business of providing government services, local franchises of one or another federal parent corporations.

Its the same way everywhere else.  The Virginia Commonwealth is the actual “state” in Virginia, whereas the Commonwealth of Virginia, VIRGINIA, and COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA  are corporate franchises in the business of selling and providing governmental services.

Now that you can tell the difference between us and them, you can begin to understand why it is absolutely necessary for us to accept the responsibility of self-governance. 

We have to determine the limits of their services and billings.  We have to draw the line between their law enforcement and our peacekeeping.  We have to vet the quality of their services and act as consumers with respect to them. We have to have our states well-organized and ready to override over-reaching and mis-administration by the federal corporations. We have to keep the governmental services corporations and the government subcontractors in line the same way any employer has to keep employees toeing the line.

It’s time to step forward into the gap and fulfill our part as the unincorporated Body Politic—the “missing” employer.  Because we are doing this public service for ourselves and not for profit, we can get the job done for a lot less.  Think of it as mopping your own floor instead of paying someone else to do it. 

There are still some expenses— soap, buckets, etc., and yes, there is a need to provide support for those who can’t afford to donate their time and to pay for professional expertise we don’t have readily available. 

As crucial as all your donations are and continue to be, we have over a hundred non-bar lawyers and PAGS and as many paralegals, many of whom need some level of support, and more than nine million continental marshals and deputies in need of training, uniforms, badges, gas money, bonding, insurance, etc., etc. We have researchers and archivists, too.  We have an entire new banking system to set up.  And let’s face it, we have millions of Americans who need to be educated and brought up to speed. 

Grateful as I am and as we all are, this is going to take more than Mom and Pop donations of cookie jar money.  Even the relatively simple job of claiming and collecting American assets that are owed to us all over the globe is daunting and when it is undertaken by individuals using their own assets to pay for legal filings and travel and certified copies of documents, etc., etc., etc., it is only by the Grace of God that we have been enabled to keep going and make headway on all this.

Please be patient while we begin “mopping the floor” and consider how you can help.  There are 3100 counties in America, many of them only continuing to function as lawful governments at the township or parish level.  Get involved locally, if you can spare the time at all, form your local Jural Assembly, and start educating the people in your community.

Point out the fact that the land jurisdiction government was vacated when the county incorporated. 

As a result, there is nobody in charge and actually tasked with enforcing the public and organic law— including the guarantees of The Constitution. 

The “sheriff” isn’t really a sheriff anymore.  He’s not –in most cases— functioning as a public peacekeeping officer.  He’s functioning as a private corporation’s code and statute enforcer, instead.

This means that if you want the actual Public Law enforced, you have to take back your birthright political status and organize your local Jural Assembly and elect your own Sheriff to operate in the land jurisdiction office. 

 And while the incorporated counties are receiving “federal block grants” — those “block grants” are the result of federal corporation racketeering and pillaging carried out against your own assets, your own people, your own businesses, and your own land.  You are funding your own misery and demise.

As long as your county takes this bait and operates as a corporate franchise it has no standing and no credibility as any part of our legitimate government.  It’s just a governmental services provider for hire, like Mike’s Security Service or Fast Eddie’s Carpet Cleaning.  And it is the same way with the state government.

Remember— it’s government of the people, for the people, by the people— not government of the corporation, for the corporation, by the corporation.  And get out your brooms and scrub brushes.

REBELS VERSUS TYRANTS A PERPETUAL FIGHT FOR LIBERTY

October 13th, 2016 by

http://www.rebelmadman.com/?p=532

 

By Michael Gaddy

“Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worse state, an intolerable one.” ~ Thomas Paine

Down through the pages of time, governments have done that which they do best; they transform from necessary evil to intolerable evil. Our country has followed in those footprints and has become as tyrannical as their predecessors . Also, traversing the annals of history are those with uncompromising principles and an unquenchable thirst for freedom and liberty. I truly believe it is genetic. History tells us this unusual breed of man has been referred to most often as Rebels. He is often rebelling against tyranny masquerading as a strong centralized government. Imagine if you will the last scene in the movie Braveheart in which with his dying breath William Wallace screams “Freedom.”

As hard as it is for most folks whose strongest attachments are to the worship of government, this country owes its founding and very existence to a band of Rebels who bore the names of Hancock, Revere, and Adams, among others. Major John Pitcairn of the Royal Marines admonished those brave souls on Lexington Green who had the audacity to challenge the most powerful force on the planet by the name Rebels when he ordered them to “disperse.” Being the stalwart men they were, they refused a direct order from those in charge. Today, the majority of people in this country would condemn the actions of the Rebels as subversive and would have referred to Major Pitcairn as a “hero” who was just doing his duty. After all, he was wearing a government costume!

Then, in 1861, the people of the South rebelled against one of the most evil tyrants in history as they resisted the Yankee invader of their homes and firesides. 94% of those who took up arms to defend their states, families, and homes did not own slaves, yet revisionist court historians have painted them all as racists in order to legitimize their crimes. Ironically, it was the Rebels of the South who embraced the Constitution and Bill of Rights against Lincoln and the Radical Republicans in Congress who were working diligently to destroy them both.

After the surrender of Robert E. Lee on April 9, 1865, the tyrannical government of Lincoln, Charles Sumner, Thaddeus Stevens and William Seward, imposed martial law and the horrors of the Reconstruction Act of 1867 on the people of the South. This epidemic of treason and tyranny would be known as Reconstruction. To ensure the Rebels learned their lesson and future generations would look upon those who dared to resist the forces of a government which had become “an intolerable” evil, the Radical Republicans sent legions of “Carpetbaggers” and other useful idiots into the South to teach these Rebels a lesson. The government “of the people, by the people and for the people” referenced by Lincoln in his Gettysburg Address did “perish from the earth,” at least the earth of the South. (It had long since perished from the earth of the North under Lincoln) The Radical Republicans sent legions of faithful servants into the South to take over the education of the young. The children were commanded to sing songs glorifying the Yankee cause and its servants. The children were also ordered to pray for the Yankee government each day. Just as General Patrick Cleburne had predicted, almost immediately the children of the South were taught “the history of the heroic struggle” was being taught by their enemies, and through “the influences of history and education to regard our gallant dead as traitors, and our maimed veterans as subjects for derision.” This paradigm continues still today.

The Yankees also sent new ministers to the churches throughout the South during Reconstruction to preach the Yankee sermons and to pray for the Yankee cause and to teach the people to repent from their Rebel proclivities.

Senator Charles Sumner, in eulogizing Lincoln, said the Gettysburg Address was itself more important than the battle itself. Others eulogized Lincoln as “Of the noblest personage,” comparing him to Jesus Christ. But, I believe a more accurate assessment of Lincoln and the Gettysburg Address came years later from H. L. Mencken when he wrote,

“The Gettysburg speech is at once the shortest and the most famous oration in American history. Put beside it, all the whoopings of the Websters, Sumners and Everetts seem gaudy and silly. It is eloquence brought to a pellucid and almost child-like perfection—the highest emotion reduced to one graceful and irresistible gesture. Nothing else precisely like it is to be found in the whole range of oratory. Lincoln himself never even remotely approached it. It is genuinely stupendous.

But let us not forget that it is oratory, not logic; beauty, not sense. Think of the argument in it! Put it into the cold words of everyday! The doctrine is simply this: that the Union soldiers who died at Gettysburg sacrificed their lives to the cause of self-determination — “that government of the people, by the people, for the people,” should not perish from the earth. It is difficult to imagine anything more untrue. The Union soldiers in that battle actually fought against self-determination; it was the Confederates who fought for the right of their people to govern themselves. What was the practical effect of the battle of Gettysburg? What else than the destruction of the old sovereignty of the States, i. e., of the people of the States? The Confederates went into battle an absolutely free people; they came out with their freedom subject to the supervision and vote of the rest of the country—and for nearly twenty years that vote was so effective that they enjoyed scarcely any freedom at all. Am I the first American to note the fundamental nonsensicality of the Gettysburg address? If so, I plead my aesthetic joy in it in amelioration of the sacrilege.”

Yes, Mencken too was a Rebel, albeit a literary one. He had the vision to see through the veils of civic religion and hypocrisy and to write the truth.

So, how does a government morph from a necessary evil created to protect the rights of the individual to an intolerable one of totalitarian proportions? It requires a majority of the people to accept a world in which their government becomes a proxy religion. It must especially envelop those who claim to be Christian as well as those who call themselves humanitarians and those who are considered, according to Tolstoy, as “nice and kind.”  Tolstoy speaks of this paradigm as a problem in psychology. He states to get these people to “commit the most heinous crimes without feeling any guilt” these “good Christian folk” must be made into governors, superintendents, officers or policemen.” By becoming servants of the government, these people can completely ignore their blatant acts of hypocrisy. By accepting “something that goes by the name of government service” this allows these pillars of the community to treat people of other countries and their own fellow citizens “like inanimate objects, precluding any humane or brotherly relationships, and, secondly ensures that people working for this government service must be so interdependent that responsibility for any consequences of the way they treat people never devolves on any of them individually.”

Tolstoy nails it. What better example than the “law enforcement” officer who enforces unconstitutional, immoral laws on his fellow man, taking their lives if they resist while claiming “I don’t make the laws, I just enforce them.” And “if you have a problem with that take it up with the courts.” Therefore he/she can then claim to be good “public servants” while completely ignoring their responsibilities to society which was included in their sacred oath to “uphold and defend” our rights against “all enemies foreign or domestic.” How many of them will then assume the mantle of Christian, humanitarian or a nice and kind neighbor? Of course, judges and prosecutors will use the very same excuse when taking people’s money and freedom, claiming, of course, they too do not “make the laws.”

Then for the politicians who also deviously refer to themselves as public servants. My life’s experience has taught me the most dangerous of these are those who claim to be Christians. A great example, other than George W. Bush, who claimed God told him to invade Iraq which led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands, has to be a current candidate for Vice President named Mike Pence. First of all, he demanded the government aid the destruction of religious liberties in Indiana reference the demands of homosexual activists and corporate bullies. His support for Common Core flies in the face of those who oppose that program on principle. Also having taken a sacred oath to uphold and defend our Constitution and Bill of Rights, Pence voted for the Patriot Act on several occasions and also voted as a globalist instead of a representative of the people who elected him. He consistently voted to fund the UN and the Import-Export Bank, both of which destroy our country’s sovereignty. Most revealing, this professing Christian, voted to veto an amendment to the Defense Appropriations Act that would have blocked Obama from illegally and unconstitutionally detaining American citizens without due process. Probably the most truthful thing Pence has said during the campaign is that he would model his vice presidency after Dick Cheney. Rebels throughout this country should be cringing inside knowing that if elected this man will be a “heartbeat” away from the presidency. But the majority of the species Ignoramus Americanus will judge him not by his record but how well he does debating a socialist clown by the name of Kaine. No true Rebel will ever vote for the lesser of evils, knowing full well evil can not be quantified and evil in any amount is the destruction of all he holds dear.

Rebels are the outcasts of a society as revealed by Tolstoy, but throughout history, Rebels have stood firmly for liberty and freedom and have stood steadfast on those principles in the face of monumental opposition. Undoubtedly, that is why they and their symbols are seen as apostate to those who embrace government as their god.

I stand as a proud and unreconstructed Rebel defending the principles of Liberty. Where do you stand?

Let them call me Rebel and welcome, I feel no concern from it; but I should suffer the misery of devils were I to make a whore of my soul by swearing allegiance to one whose character is that of a sottish, stupid, stubborn, worthless, brutish man.” ~ Thomas Paine, The Crisis.

IN RIGHTFUL LIBERTY

Mike

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

There’s been some talk on the campaign trail about the “national debt,” which the government and media tell us stands at more than $19 trillion. During the vice presidential debate last week, Mike Pence stated that the national debt has doubled under President Barack Obama.

But what does the “national debt” really mean? Would you be shocked to know that we have in America the identical monetary system that Hitler had and that Russia had and has? We also have a propaganda machine that would have made Hitler blush.

Since U.S. “money” (and the money of the whole world) is bank credit and since bank credit is created by government and commercial banks, then the “national debt” represents bank credit passed or “loaned” upon an unsuspecting public for their real assets and labor.

Translated: Modern money (bank credit) expropriates wealth. In truth then, the huge reported “national debt” is how much wealth the government has stolen from the American people — not how much the government owes.

The “national debt” propaganda covers the fraud that our real assets and real wealth are flowing to the government for exchange of government-created credit. Just try to get it back!

Yes, indeed, this is witchcraft that reverses our thought processes. And yes, the national debt is an asset to the government, not a liability. Real assets stolen with bank credit are assets to the government, not debt.

Proof: When the local commercial bank “loans” you money (credit) that they create with a bookkeeping entry, this transaction appears on their books as an asset (a deposit) to the bank and a liability (debt) to the borrower who pledged real assets as collateral. Yes, your debt is the bank’s asset. This same system works with the U.S. monetary system.

Fractional reserve banking is a government-approved Ponzi scheme. Banks hold only a fraction of your money in an account, and they do not have reserves on hand to cover all the debt owed them by their customers and the savings customers have deposited. In other words, all banks are bankrupt except for their ability to “create” money.

How do they do this? Based on a formula created by the Fed, a new bank can open with a small amount of invested capital, have zero net transaction accounts (no money on deposit) and immediately “lend” up to $9.3 million by simply creating new money on a computer.

So let’s say that you borrow $200,000 at 5 percent interest on a 25-year note from the bank mentioned above (the one with no money on deposit) to buy a house. You make a monthly payment of $1,169.18 to the bank in the form of your mortgage payment. By the time you have paid off your loan, you have paid the bank a total of $350,754.02. In other words, the bank has now profited to the tune of $350,000 from you on money that never existed. And should you have defaulted on your loan, not only would you have lost whatever money you had paid prior to the default, the bank would own your home outright through a repossession.

The Federal Reserve (which is neither a federal agency nor does it hold any reserves) works this way, by “lending” money to other banks, through either a mark on a ledger sheet or by computer transfer. Real money never changes hands.

Do you think that the government and the politicians want to keep this a secret? For some reason, the Federal Reserve spilled the beans in its publication “Keeping Our Money Healthy,” published by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in which it said, “our system works only with credit.” All we have to know then is who creates credit, and how is it used?

Fact: Wealth always flows to the creators of credit. Government and banks create money (credit) for one purpose and that is to expropriate wealth. The expropriation of wealth is stealing with no payment intended.

Not only has the government stolen the national wealth and called it the national debt, they have the people believing that they still owe a national debt. Economic writers and pundits will often tell you that each American owes $61,000 (or some similar number) to pay off the national debt.

In other words, after being robbed with credit, the “national debt” implies that we owe the amount stolen from us. An entity which creates credit out of nothing and “pays” it for real assets and production is not assuming a debt by any definition. It is stealing and calling the theft debt. The creation and control of all credit in the hands of a central bank (government) is the fifth plank of the Communist Manifesto. Look honestly at the American monetary system and you are looking tyranny and slavery in the face.

In a booklet entitled “The National Debt,” published by the Philadelphia Federal Reserve Bank, we get this quote:

“The Federal Reserve, in cooperation with the Federal Government, has the inherent power to create money (credit) — almost any amount of it. This power makes bankruptcy out of the question.”

What the crowd believes is wrong and always has been. The crowd believes that there is a “national debt.” They believe this for good reason. There is a whole industry of deception in America which is promoting the national debt myth.

You have heard of vested interest. Well, this national debt propaganda is U.S. government vested interest. This is a mind-twisting myth covered by hard propaganda that nobody will even question. The reason that this is so is simply the existence of widespread ignorance of the nature of modern money (bank credit) and just how bank credit or government credit transfers real resources to the banks and the Federal Government without payment of any kind. Can you guess why nobody wants you to understand that modern money is bank credit that is created out of nothing and “loaned” or “paid” into circulation in exchange for real resources? This is why we say that modern money expropriates wealth.

Think now for a moment. The reported “national debt” has gone into the stratosphere with and since the massive creation of credit. The “national debt” drama did not blast off until all gold and silver as money were removed from circulation by government force. The federal government, with credit money, has in this generation replaced hard currency and hard money with hard propaganda. Under this mirage, they have stolen the wealth and production of the American people and impoverished them. They have stolen the national wealth and there is only one big pool left to steal. The “trillions” in pension funds Americans now hold.

Under pretense and charade from the politicians there is a great threat hanging over this reservoir of credit in private hands. Everybody who has savings or a pension fund needs to understand that nobody owns and controls credit but the federal government — an immoral federal government. If you think that you own your “money,” you need to take a sober moment and try to understand our bank credit money system. Every “penny” that we have left is at risk.

The good news is that it can be reversed if only we will stop believing government propaganda and its army of puppeteers about the “national debt.” The mystique about bank credit (money) fades once we look at the facts and revelations published by none other than the Federal Reserve bank itself.

There is a small cadre of hard core monetary realists in America who have discovered and uncovered the monolithic fraud and deception of theft with bank credit. But this deception is enshrouded with all the force of the system and there will be few who will inquire. It is only our lives, our substance, and posterity at stake. Every thought that we have, every financial decision that we make, every plan that we have for our future and our children’s future depends on our information, based on facts and reality, not “conventional wisdom.”

Moral decay, economic crisis, and all wars are created with bank credit. Needless to say, the hour is late, but not too late if only we are willing. The truth can be known.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS!

This was my first real exposure to (What really happened to America?) And I have found no credible evidence of it not being true. Although James Montgomery finally became exhausted and felt guilty for having no family time due to his excessive research, he still remains the first I have been able to find who published America’s real history. The Informer is a grumpy old fart, but I still purchased all of his books and to his credit, found many details left out by other authors. It takes no giant increase in intellect to know the difference between DeFacto and Dejure and that remains our present situation. Until I read, You Know Something is Wrong When…..: An American Affidavit of Probable Cause (Paperback) by Judge Anna Maria Riezinger & James Clinton Belcher http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1491279184/ref=cm_cr_asin_lnk  I had little hope of ever returning to a Dejure status. Now I know it remains a problem of re-education, if we are ever to be free from the International Investment Banking Cartel.

THE UNITED STATES
IS STILL A BRITISH COLONY

EXTORTING TAXES FOR THE CROWN!

A DOCUMENTARY REVIEW
OF CHARTERS AND TREATIES
August 17, 1996

PART ONE of SEVEN PARTS

An introduction by the “Informer”

This is the latest from a man who visits me quite often. He and another man researched my theory that we have never been free from the British Crown. This disc shows the results. I have stated that we will never win in their courts. This shows conclusively why. We have the hard copy of the treaties that are the footnotes. This predates Schroder’s material, my research of the 1861 stats by Lincoln that put us under the War Powers confiscation acts, and John Nelson’s material.

All our material supports that the real Principal, the King of England, still rules this country through the bankers and why we own no property in allodium. This is why it is so important to start OUR courts of God’s natural (common) Law and break away from all the crap they have handed us. This is one reason Virginia had a law to hang all lawyers but was somehow, by someone, (the King) set aside to let them operate again. Some good people put in the original 13th amendment so that without the lawyers the King could not continue his strangle hold on us.

James shows how that was quashed by the King. I am happy that James’ research of six months bears out my theory, that most people would not listen to me, that we are still citizen/subjects under the kings of England. My article called “Reality” published in the American Bulletin and the article of mine on the “Atocha case,” wherein Florida in 1981 used it’s sovereignty under the British crown to try to take away the gold from the wreck found in Florida waters supports this premise.

James makes mention of the Law dictionaries being England’s Law Dictionary. You will note it lists the reign of all the Kings of England. It never mentions the reign of the Presidents of this country. Ever wonder Why?

Get this out to as many people as you can.

The Informer.

The United States is still a British Colony

The trouble with history is, we weren’t there when it took place. Therefore, it can be changed to fit someone’s belief and/or traditions; or, it can be taught in the public schools to favor a political agenda, and withhold many facts. I know you have been taught that we won the Revolutionary War and defeated the British, but I can prove to the contrary. I want you to read this paper with an open mind, and allow yourself to be instructed with the following verifiable facts. You be the judge. Don’t let prior conclusions on your part, or, incorrect teaching, keep you from the truth.

I too was always taught in school, and in studying our history books, that our freedom came from the Declaration of Independence and was secured by our winning the Revolutionary War. I’m going to discuss a few documents that are included in the footnotes at the end of this paper. The first document is the first Charter of Virginia in 1606 (Footnote 1). In the first paragraph, the king of England granted our fore fathers license to settle and colonize America. The definition for license is as follows.

“In Government Regulation. Authority to do some act or carry on some trade or business, in its nature lawful but prohibited by statute, except with the permission of the civil authority or which would otherwise be unlawful.” Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 1914.

Keep in mind those that came to America from England were British subjects. So you can better understand what I’m going to tell you, here are the definitions for subject and citizen.

“In monarchical governments, by subject is meant one who owes permanent allegiance to the monarch.” Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 1914.

“Constitutional Law. One that owes allegiance to a sovereign and is governed by his laws. The natives of Great Britain are subjects of the British government. Men in free governments are subjects as well as citizens; as citizens they enjoy rights and franchises; as subjects they are bound to obey the laws. The term is little used, in this sense, in countries enjoying a republican form of government.” Swiss Nat. Ins. Co. v. Miller, 267 U.S. 42, 45 S. Ct. 213, 214, 69 L.Ed. 504. Blacks fifth Ed.

I chose to give the definition for subject first, so you could better understand what definition of citizen is really being used in American law. Below is the definition of citizen from Roman law.

“The term citizen was used in Rome to indicate the possession of private civil rights, including those accruing under the Roman family and inheritance law and the Roman contract and property law. All other subjects were peregrines. But in the beginning of the 3d century the distinction was abolished and all subjects were citizens; 1 sel. Essays in Anglo-Amer. L. H. 578.” Bouvier’s Law Dictionary, 1914.

The king was making a commercial venture when he sent his subjects to America, and used his money and resources to do so. I think you would admit the king had a lawful right to receive gain and prosper from his venture. In the Virginia Charter he declares his sovereignty over the land and his subjects and in paragraph 9 he declares the amount of gold, silver and copper he is to receive if any is found by his subjects. There could have just as easily been none, or his subjects could have been killed by the Indians. This is why this was a valid right of the king (Jure Coronae, “In right of the crown,” Black’s forth Ed.), the king expended his resources with the risk of total loss.

If you’ll notice in paragraph 9, the king declares that all his heirs and successors were to also receive the same amount of gold, silver and copper that he claimed with this Charter. The gold that remained in the colonies was also the kings. He provided the remainder as a benefit for his subjects, which amounted to further use of his capital. You will see in this paper that not only is this valid, but it is still in effect today.

If you will read the rest of the Virginia Charter you will see that the king declared the right and exercised the power to regulate every aspect of commerce in his new colony. A license had to be granted for travel connected with transfer of goods (commerce) right down to the furniture they sat on. A great deal of the king’s declared property was ceded to America in the Treaty of 1783. I want you to stay focused on the money and the commerce which was not ceded to America.

This brings us to the Declaration of Independence.

Our freedom was declared because the king did not fulfill his end of the covenant between king and subject. The main complaint was taxation without representation, which was reaffirmed in the early 1606 Charter granted by the king. It was not a revolt over being subject to the king of England, most wanted the protection and benefits provided by the king. Because of the kings refusal to hear their demands and grant relief, separation from England became the lesser of two evils. The cry of freedom and self determination became the rallying cry for the colonist. The slogan “Don’t Tread On Me” was the standard borne by the militias.

The Revolutionary War was fought and concluded when Cornwallis surrendered to Washington at Yorktown. As Americans we have been taught that we defeated the king and won our freedom. The next document I will use is the Treaty of 1783, which will totally contradict our having won the Revolutionary War. Footnote 2.

Esquire ??

I want you to notice in the first paragraph that the king refers to himself as ‘Prince of the Holy Roman Empire and of the United States’. You know from this that the United States did not negotiate this Treaty of peace in a position of strength and victory, but it is obvious that Benjamin Franklin, John Jay and John Adams negotiated a Treaty of further granted privileges from the king of England. Keep this in mind as you study these documents. You also need to understand the players of those that negotiated this Treaty. For the Americans it was Benjamin Franklin Esgr., a great patriot and standard bearer of freedom. Or was he? His title includes Esquire.

An Esquire in the above usage was a granted rank and Title of nobility by the king, which is below Knight and above a yeoman, common man. An Esquire is someone that does not do manual labor as signified by this status, see the below definitions:

“Esquires by virtue of their offices; as justices of the peace, and others who bear any office of trust under the crown….for whosever studieth the laws of the realm, who studieth in the universities, who professeth the liberal sciences, and who can live idly, and without manual labor, and will bear the port, charge, and countenance of a gentleman, he shall be called master, and shall be taken for a gentleman.” Blackstone Commentaries p. 561-562

“Esquire – In English Law. A title of dignity next above gentleman, and below knight. Also a title of office given to sheriffs, serjeants, and barristers at law, justices of the peace, and others.” Blacks Law Dictionary fourth ed. p. 641

Benjamin Franklin, John Adams and John Jay, as you can read in the Treaty, were all Esquires and were the signers of this Treaty and the only negotiators of the Treaty. The representative of the king was David Hartley Esqr..

Benjamin Franklin was the main negotiator for the terms of the Treaty, he spent most of the War traveling between England and France. The use of Esquire declared his and the others British subjection and loyalty to the crown.

In the first article of the Treaty most of the kings claims to America are relinquished, except for his claim to continue receiving gold, silver and copper as gain for his business venture. Article 3 gives Americans the right to fish the waters around the United States and its rivers. In article 4, the United States agreed to pay all bona fide debts. If you will read my other papers on money you will understand that the financiers were working with the king. Why else would he protect their interest with this Treaty?

I wonder if you have seen the main and obvious point? This Treaty was signed in 1783, the war was over in 1781. If the United States defeated England, how is the king granting rights to America, when we were now his equal in status? We supposedly defeated him in the Revolutionary War! So why would these supposed patriot Americans sign such a Treaty, when they knew that this would void any sovereignty gained by the Declaration of Independence and the Revolutionary War? If we had won the Revolutionary War, the king granting us our land would not be necessary, it would have been ours by his loss of the Revolutionary War.

To not dictate the terms of a peace treaty in a position of strength after winning a war; means the war was never won. Think of other wars we have won, such as when we defeated Japan. Did McArther allow Japan to dictate to him the terms for surrender? No way! All these men did is gain status and privilege granted by the king and insure the subjection of future unaware generations. Worst of all, they sold out those that gave their lives and property for the chance to be free.

When Cornwallis surrendered to Washington he surrendered the battle, not the war. Read the Article of Capitulation signed by Cornwallis at Yorktown. (Footnote 3)

Jonathan Williams recorded in his book, Legions of Satan, 1781, that Cornwallis revealed to Washington during his surrender that “a holy war will now begin on America, and when it is ended America will be supposedly the citadel of freedom, but her millions will unknowingly be loyal subjects to the Crown.”….”in less than two hundred years the whole nation will be working for divine world government. That government that they believe to be divine will be the British Empire.”

All the Treaty did was remove the United States as a liability and obligation of the king. He no longer had to ship material and money to support his subjects and colonies. At the same time he retained financial subjection through debt owed after the Treaty, which is still being created today; millions of dollars a day. And his heirs and successors are still reaping the benefit of the kings original venture. If you will read the following quote from Title 26, you will see just one situation where the king is still collecting a tax from those that receive a benefit from him, on property which is purchased with the money the king supplies, at almost the same percentage:

A New War Declared Upon America

A new war was declared when the Treaty was signed. The king wanted his land back and he knew he would be able to regain his property for his heirs with the help of his world financiers. Here is a quote from the king speaking to Parliament after the Revolutionary War had concluded.

(Six weeks after) the capitulation of Yorktown, the king of Great Britain, in his speech to Parliament (Nov. 27, 1781), declared “That he should not answer the trust committed to the sovereign of a free people, if he consented to sacrifice either to his own desire of peace, or to their temporary ease and relief, those essential rights and permanent interests, upon the maintenance and preservation of which the future strength and security of the country must forever depend.” The determined language of this speech, pointing to the continuance of the American war, was echoed back by a majority of both Lords and Commons.

In a few days after (Dec. 12), it was moved in the House of Commons that a resolution should be adopted declaring it to be their opinion “That all farther attempts to reduce the Americans to obedience by force would be ineffectual, and injurious to the true interests of Great Britain.” The rest of the debate can be found in (Footnote 4). What were the true interests of the king? The gold, silver and copper.

The new war was to be fought without Americans being aware that a war was even being waged, it was to be fought by subterfuge and key personnel being placed in key positions. The first two parts of ‘A Country Defeated In Victory‘ go into detail about how this was done and exposes some of the main players.

Every time you pay a tax you are transferring your labor to the king, and his heirs and successors are still receiving interest from the original American Charters.

The following is the definition of tribute (tax).

“A contribution which is raised by a prince or sovereign from his subjects to sustain the expenses of the state.

A sum of money paid by an inferior sovereign or state to a superior potentate, to secure the friendship or protection of the latter.” Blacks Law Dictionary forth ed. p. 1677.

As further evidence, not that any is needed, a percentage of taxes that are paid are to enrich the king/queen of England. For those that study Title 26 you will recognize IMF, which means Individual Master File, all tax payers have one. To read one you have to be able to break their codes using file 6209, which is about 467 pages. On your IMF you will find a blocking series, which tells you what type of tax you are paying. You will probably find a 300-399 blocking series, which 6209 says is reserved. You then look up the BMF 300-399, which is the Business Master File in 6209. You would have seen prior to 1991, this was U.S.-U.K. Tax Claims, non-refile DLN. Meaning everyone is considered a business and involved in commerce and you are being held liable for a tax via a treaty between the U.S. and the U.K., payable to the U.K..

The form that is supposed to be used for this is form 8288, FIRPTA – Foreign Investment Real Property Tax Account, you won’t find many people using this form, just the 1040 form. The 8288 form can be found in the Law Enforcement Manual of the IRS, chapter 3. If you will check the OMB’s paper – Office of Management and Budget, in the Department of Treasury, List of Active Information Collections, Approved Under Paperwork Reduction Act, you will find this form under OMB number 1545-0902, which says U.S. withholding tax-return for dispositions by foreign persons of U.S. real property interests-statement of withholding on dispositions, by foreign persons, of U.S. Form #8288 #8288a.

These codes have since been changed to read as follows; IMF 300-309, Barred Assessment, CP 55 generated valid for MFT-30, which is the code for 1040 form. IMF 310-399 reserved, the BMF 300-309 reads the same as IMF 300-309. BMF 390-399 reads U.S./U.K. Tax Treaty Claims. The long and short of it is nothing changed, the government just made it plainer, the 1040 is the payment of a foreign tax to the king/queen of England. We have been in financial servitude since the Treaty of 1783.

Another Treaty between England and the United States was Jay’s Treaty of 1794 (footnote 5). If you will remember from the Paris Treaty of 1783, John Jay Esqr. was one of the negotiators of the Treaty. In 1794 he negotiated another Treaty with Britain. There was great controversy among the American people about this Treaty.

In Article 2 you will see the king is still on land that was supposed to be ceded to the United States at the Paris Treaty. This is 13 years after America supposedly won the Revolutionary War. I guess someone forgot to tell the king of England. In Article 6, the king is still dictating terms to the United States concerning the collection of debt and damages, the British government and World Bankers claimed we owe. In Article 12 we find the king dictating terms again, this time concerning where and with who the United States could trade. In Article 18 the United States agrees to a wide variety of material that would be subject to confiscation if Britain found said material going to its enemies ports. Who won the Revolutionary War?

That’s right, we were conned by some of our early fore fathers into believing that we are free and sovereign people, when in fact we had the same status as before the Revolutionary War. I say had, because our status is far worse now than then. I’ll explain.

Early on in our history the king was satisfied with the interest made by the Bank of the United States. But when the Bank Charter was canceled in 1811 it was time to gain control of the government, in order to shape government policy and public policy. Have you never asked yourself why the British, after burning the White House and all our early records during the War of 1812, left and did not take over the government.

The reason they did, was to remove the greatest barrier to their plans for this country. That barrier was the newly adopted 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution. The purpose for this Amendment was to stop anyone from serving in the government who was receiving a Title of nobility or honor. It was and is obvious that these government employees would be loyal to the granter of the Title of nobility or honor.

The War of 1812 served several purposes. It delayed the passage of the 13th Amendment by Virginia, allowed the British to destroy the evidence of the first 12 states ratification of this Amendment, and it increased the national debt, which would coerce the Congress to reestablish the Bank Charter in 1816 after the Treaty of Ghent was ratified by the Senate in 1815.

Forgotten Amendment

The Articles of Confederation, Article VI states: “nor shall the united States in Congress assembled, or any of them, grant any Title of nobility.” The Constitution for the united States, in Article, I Section 9, clause 8 states: “No Title of nobility shall be granted by the united States; and no Person holding any Office or Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.”

Also, Section 10, clause 1 states, “No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque or Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but Gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto of Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of nobility.”

There was however, no measurable penalty for violation of the above Sections. Congress saw this as a great threat to the freedom of Americans, and our Republican form of government. In January 1810 Senator Reed proposed the Thirteenth Amendment, and on April 26, 1810 was passed by the Senate 26 to 1 (1st-2nd session, p. 670) and by the House 87 to 3 on May 1, 1810 (2nd session, p. 2050) and submitted to the seventeen states for ratification. The Amendment reads as follows:

“If any citizen of the United States shall Accept, claim, receive or retain any title of nobility or honor, or shall, without the consent of Congress, accept and retain any present, pension, office or emolument of any kind whatever, from any emperor, king, prince or foreign power, such person shall cease to be a citizen of the United States, and shall be incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under them, or either of them.”

From An “American Dictionary of the English Language, 1st Edition,” Noah Webster(1828), defines nobility as:

“3. The qualities which constitute distinction of rank in civil society, according to the customs or laws of the country; that eminence or dignity which a man derives from birth or title conferred, and which places him in an order above common men.”; and,

“4. The persons collectively who enjoy rank above commoners; the peerage.”

The fore-mentioned Sections in the Constitution for the united States, and the above proposed Thirteenth Amendment sought to prohibit the above definition, which would give any advantage or privilege to some citizens an unequal opportunity to achieve or exercise political power. Thirteen of the seventeen states listed below understood the importance of this Amendment.

On March 10, 1819, the Virginia legislature passed Act No. 280 (Virginia Archives of Richmond, “misc.” file, p. 299 for micro- film):

“Be it enacted by the General Assembly, that there shall be published an edition of the laws of this Commonwealth in which shall be contained the following matters, that is to say: the Constitution of the united States and the amendments thereto…”

The official day of ratification was March 12, 1819, this was the date of re-publication of the Virginia Civil Code. Virginia ordered 4,000 copies, almost triple their usual order. Word of Virginia’s 1819 ratification spread throughout the states and both Rhode Island and Kentucky published the new Amendment in 1822. Ohio published the new Amendment in 1824. Maine ordered 10,000 copies of the Constitution with the new Amendment to be printed for use in the public schools, and again in 1831 for their Census Edition.

Indiana published the new Amendment in the Indiana Revised Laws, of 1831 on P. 20. The Northwest Territories published the new Amendment in 1833; Ohio published the new Amendment again in 1831 and in 1833. Connecticut, one of the states that voted against the new Amendment published the new Amendment in 1835. Wisconsin Territory published the new Amendment in 1839; Iowa Territory published the new Amendment in 1843;

Ohio published the new Amendment again, in 1848; Kansas published the new Amendment in 1855; and Nebraska Territory published the new Amendment six years in a row from 1855 to 1860. Colorado Territory published the new Amendment in 1865 and again 1867, in the 1867 printing, the present Thirteenth Amendment (slavery Amendment) was listed as the Fourteenth Amendment. The repeated reprinting of the Amended united States Constitution is conclusive evidence of its passage.

Also, as evidence of the new Thirteenth Amendments impending passage; on December 2, 1817 John Quincy Adams, then Secretary of State, wrote to Buck (an attorney) regarding the position Buck had been assigned. The letter reads:

“…if it should be the opinion of this Government that the acceptance on your part of the Commission under which it was granted did not interfere with your citizenship.

It is the opinion of the Executive that under the 13th amendment to the constitution by the acceptance of such an appointment from any foreign Government, a citizen of the United States ceases to enjoy that character, and becomes incapable of holding any office of trust or profit under the United States or either of them… J.Q.A.

By virtue of these titles and honors, and special privileges, lawyers have assumed political and economic advantages over the majority of citizens. A majority may vote, but only a minority (lawyers) may run for political office.

After the War of 1812 was concluded the Treaty of Ghent was signed and ratified (footnote 6). In Article 4 of the Treaty, the United States gained what was already given in the Treaty of Paris 1783, namely islands off the U.S. Coast. Also, two men were to be given the power to decide the borders and disagreements, if they could not, the power was to be given to an outside sovereign power and their decision was final and considered conclusive.

In Article 9, it is admitted there are citizens and subjects in America. As you have seen, the two terms are interchangeable, synonymous. In Article 10 you will see where the idea for the overthrow of this country came from and on what issue. The issue raised by England was slavery and it was nurtured by the king’s emissaries behind the scenes. This would finally lead to the Civil War, even though the Supreme Court had declared the states and their citizens property rights could not be infringed on by the United States government or Congress.

This was further declared by the following Presidential quotes, where they declared to violate the states rights would violate the U.S. Constitution. Also, history shows that slavery would not have existed much longer in the Southern states, public sentiment was changing and slavery was quickly disappearing. The Civil War was about destroying property rights and the U.S. Constitution which supported these rights. Read the following quotes of Presidents just before the Civil War:

“I believe that involuntary servitude, as it exists in different States of this Confederacy, is recognized by the Constitution. I believe that it stands like any other admitted right, and that the States were it exists are entitled to efficient remedies to enforce the constitutional provisions.” Franklin Pierce Inaugural Address, March 4, 1853 – Messages and Papers of the Presidents, vol. 5.

“The whole Territorial question being thus settled upon the principle of popular sovereignty-a principle as ancient as free government itself – everything of a practical nature has been decided. No other question remains for adjustment, because all agree that under the Constitution slavery in the States is beyond the reach of any human power except that of the respective States themselves wherein it exists.” James Buchanan Inaugural Address, March 4th, 1857 – Messages and Papers of the Presidents, vol. 5.

“I cordially congratulate you upon the final settlement by the Supreme Court of the United States of the question of slavery in the Territories, which had presented an aspect so truly formidable at the commencement of my Administration. The right has been established of every citizen to take his property of any kind, including slaves, into the common Territories belonging equally to all the States of the Confederacy, and to have it protected there under the Federal Constitution.

Neither Congress nor a Territorial legislature nor any human power has any authority to annul or impair this vested right. The supreme judicial tribunal of the country, which is a coordinate branch of the Government, has sanctioned and affirmed these principles of constitutional law, so manifestly just in themselves and so well calculated to promote peace and harmony among the States.” James Buchanan, Third Annual Message, December 19, 1859 – Messages and Papers of the Presidents, vol. 5.

So there is no misunderstanding, I am not rearguing slavery. Slavery is morally wrong and contrary to God Almighty’s Law. In this divisive issue, the true attack was on our natural rights and on the Constitution. The core of the attack was on our right to possess allodial property. Our God given right to own property in allodial was taken away by conquest of the Civil War. If you are free, this right cannot be taken away. The opposite of free is slave or subject, we were allowed to believe we were free for about 70 years. Then the king said enough, and had the slavery issue pushed to the front by the northern press, which so formed northern public opinion, that they were willing to send their sons to die in the Civil War.

The southern States were not fighting so much for the slave issue, but for the right to own property, any property. These property rights were granted by the king in the Treaty of 1783, knowing they would soon be forfeited by the American people through ignorance. Do you think you own your house? If you were to stop paying taxes, federal or state, you would soon find out that you were just being allowed to live and pay rent for this house. The rent being the taxes to the king, who supplied the benefit of commerce.

A free man not under a monarch, democracy, dictatorship or socialist government, but is under a republican form of government would not and could not have his property taken. Why! The king’s tax would not and could not be levied. If the Americans had been paying attention the first 70 years to the subterfuge and corruption of the Constitution and government representatives, instead of chasing the money supplied by the king, the Conquest of this country during the Civil War could have been avoided. George Washington had vision during the Revolutionary War, concerning the Civil War. You need to read it. (Footnote 7)

Higher Education or Education for Hire Corporatization and the Threat to Democratic Thinking

By: Joel Westheimer  

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

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

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

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

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

The impact of the corporate campus on critical thinking

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

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

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

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

The weakening of intellectual independence and democratic faculty governance

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

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

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

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

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

The corporate benefits of the meritocracy myth

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

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

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

Conclusion

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

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

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

The Bank of England Abandons Cryptocurrencies — For Now

by George Pickering

The Bank of England recently announced that it will not be pursuing plans to introduce its own Bitcoin-style cryptocurrency in the near future. Speaking at the CREST Twentieth Anniversary Conference on 20th September, the BoE’s executive director for banking, payments, and financial resilience, Andrew Hauser, confirmed that “there is no likelihood of such an extreme revolution occurring any time soon.” The announcement was prompted by speculation following a recent consultation paper published by the Bank, which suggested that Bank stakeholders had agreed that the creation of such a cryptocurrency would be the “blueprint for the next generation of real time gross settlement systems (RTGS).”

A RTGS is a specialist funds transfer system traditionally operated by central banks, which “essentially forms the foundation” of everything the Bank of England does. It allows for high-value transfers of money or securities to be made between banks, and be settled instantly. The system is considered to be vital to keeping the banking system liquid and dynamic on a minute-by-minute basis. The current RTGS arrangement facilitates over half a trillion pounds worth of inter-bank transactions within the UK financial sector each day, a number equivalent to almost a third of the UK’s annual GDP. As things stand, the Bank of England’s RTGS system operates with a stock of £300 billion of electronic central bank reserves, and around a fifth that amount in physical bank notes.

Through its role in easing inter-bank lending, the RTGS is also vital to the Bank of England’s role in manipulating interest rates and enacting quantitative easing. By helping the central bank to lend reserves to other banks on an enormous and rapid basis, the RTGS amplifies the importance of the Bank Rate of interest paid on those reserves. The Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee, who set this Bank Rate, is thus afforded enormous power to influence interest rates and inflation throughout the economy. The RTGS system also bolsters the BoE’s ability to conjure money out of thin air and rapidly distribute it to private banks. This allows for inflation of the money supply and quantitative easing at a rate and scale which would be impossible otherwise.

So why was the Bank of England considering the introduction of its own crypto-currency, to use within its real time gross settlement system? After all, the novel technological features of private cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin have been popular largely because they have allowed users to more easily escape the strictures of the state-controlled economy, which central banks are at the very heart of. Ironically however, the central bankers are now hoping to strike back by harnessing the very same technologies and putting them in service to their own machinations. Inspired by the decentralised public ledgers used to run blockchain-based cryptocurrencies, central banks have theorised that a modified “distributed ledger” technology could enhance security and speed up settlement times within the RTGS.

If the recent consultation papers and proofs-of-concept put out by the Bank are indeed correct, and a distributed ledger cryptocurrency would benefit and strengthen central banks’ RTGS systems, then the opponents of the central banks’ influence over the world economy should certainly be concerned. Such strengthening of the central banks’ ability to manipulate interest rates would only fuel and accelerate the banks’ already dangerous power to create inflationary bubbles and busts throughout the world economy. Furthermore, the technology would allow central banks to entrench themselves and their methods even more deeply into the world’s economic framework, making the prospect of their eventual abolition seem even more distant. In June, Bank of England Governor Mark Carney ominously emphasised, in the transcript of a cancelled speech, that the technology would better allow the RTGS system to remain active even under circumstances of extreme disruption and turmoil in the financial system. “The great promise of distributed ledgers for central banks is their potential to enhance resilience. Distributing the ledger means multiple copies of the system. It can continue to operate if parts get knocked out.” If the BoE is right, and the introduction of its own cryptocurrency would indeed allow faster and more secure injections of easy money through the financial system, then the next generation of central bankers could find themselves wielding a degree of power beyond the imaginings of their predecessors.

In light of this then, the Bank’s recent announcement that it will not be pursuing this course in the near future should come as a relief. Unfortunately however, it can be expected that central banks around the world probably will eventually implement such changes. Not only have they invested significant time and resources into investigating these ideas already, with those investigations resulting in largely positive expectations, but also because several central banks have already begun to make steps in that direction over the summer and early fall of this year. While researchers at the Bank of England have been amongst the most aggressive and vocal in exploring potential applications of the new technology, the Bank of Canada appears already to be preparing similar plans for implementation. The Canadian central bank revealed this June that it, in partnership with several other major Canadian banks, was developing a blockchain based digital equivalent to the Canadian dollar, called CAD-coin. It is worth watching for developments in these plans over the next few months, as they may well provide an insight into what the future of central banking might look like.

ANSWERS REGARDING CONFUSION

http://www.paulstramer.net/2016/10/answer-regarding-confusion.html

By Anna Von Reitz

In answer to the confusion over the apparent layers of “government” it is easiest to visualize in terms of jurisdictions instead of “territories”—-which can mean many things. 

The federal corporation(s) received a delegation of our authority to provide certain (19) services to our states of the Union and they have usurped their delegated jurisdiction over on top of ours in contravention of our agreements with them and they have claimed falsely that we knew about this and agreed to it. 

Each state of the Union is also a nation (national = land jurisdiction = public ) and a state (international = sea jurisdiction = private) as well as having its part of the global jurisdiction of the air.

So, for example the state of new york has air, land, and sea jurisdictions associated with it. 

Under the Constitution agreement our states retained ALL jurisdiction on the land, retained some of their international jurisdiction on the sea, and delegated some to the “federal government” which is in fact a British-controlled corporation in the business of providing governmental services. 

Congress has meddled and futzed around with this foreign corporate entity in various ways to create multiple corporations doing various things within the District of Columbia, such as making the city of Washington a separate international city-state with its own separate municipal government and running it as an oligarchy.

All that makes it more confusing from the federal side, but from our side it is a simple “us”— the Americans and American states and “them”— the federal corporations operating out of the District of Columbia.

Please note that all the land jurisdiction is ours and that our counties and states are described as land parcels with physical borders.  These are the actual counties and states which are owed their own county and state governments.

But back in the 1950’s and 60’s “thanks” largely to finagling by J.D. Rockefeller, the then-State and County organizations were seduced into agreeing to incorporate as franchises of the federal parent corporation in order to receive their “fair share” of federal racketeering kick-backs, euphemistically called “Federal Block Grants”.  When they did this, they came under the more or less direct control of the federal corporation and the Checks and Balances that are supposed to be built into our government system were destroyed.  The foreign British-controlled federal corporation now had de facto control of our government and had basically purchased its position by illegally pillaging and plundering the American people and then bribing and buying off the state and county organizations by giving them a share of the profits.

When those then-operating organizations incorporated under the auspices of the “federal government” corporation, they started operating in its sphere— that is, in private international jurisdiction— and our public state and county governments were “vacated”.  It doesn’t mean that they were destroyed or ceased to exist, simply that the people we elected and trusted to represent us went to work for different masters without telling us.

The result is that our lawful government on the land was deserted and nobody was any longer directly responsible for enforcing the organic and public law of this country.  All the then- Sheriffs went from being peacekeepers (enforcing the law of the land) to being law enforcement officials (responsible for enforcing corporate codes, regulations, and statutes).

The heart of this conundrum was addressed by Sheriff Richard Mack in Mack and Prinz v. USA, in which the Supreme Court decided that an elected county sheriff under this new system COULD at his own volition (and according to his own judgment, not as a job duty) CHOOSE to enforce the Constitution.  But obviously, a sheriff who enforced the limits of the Constitution against the federal corporation was not likely to remain a “sheriff” in this system for long, wouldn’t get corporate bonuses, etc., so fewer and fewer of these men chose to do their public duty even though Sheriff Mack cleared the way and made it “official” that they could do so. 

Over time as people have become more ignorant and more inured to these abuses, the acceptance of federal supremacy in areas that are not rightfully delegated to the federal government has grown until we have been living with ever-increasing racketeering by this foreign corporation. 

Obummercare is a good example.  The federal corporation moved to take over the entire Health Industry sector of our economy worth hundreds of billions of dollars annually and because people ignorantly assumed that this “thing” headquartered in DC had authority to do this, the rats used our ignorance to their advantage.

Because they bought off our legitimate state and county governments decades ago, they were unopposed. They could do virtually anything they wanted to do with the resources of this country and to the people of this country, because their fraud and deceit had been accomplished without the People knowing.

And then, we began waking up…..we realized that what was posing as our country government wasn’t acting as our county government, and the same with the state governments.  They didn’t answer to the people anymore, they answered to the “federal government”—- to the District of Columbia Municipal Corporation, to be exact, and to the UNITED STATES, INC., and so on. 

Foreign investors were coming in and buying up whatever parts and pieces of our “government” that they wished to buy and running things however they pleased as privatized subcontractors.  The Federal Reserve Banks literally bought the entire court system and used it to collect whatever phony debts the banks and politicians cared to foist off on people.

And the rats in Washington, DC– the members of Congress and the various “Presidents” –sat on their rumps and let this go on and profited from it for six (6) generations while singing “Yankee Doodle Dandy”. 

So now the UNITED STATES, INC. fronted by the French-sponsored International Monetary Fund is being liquidated by the GCR Committee, which also recently took over the Vatican Bank, and heads are rolling in DC, but this is just a another changing of management over the federal corporation(s). 

We are the actual Priority Creditors of all the federal, state, county, city, and other corporate entities involved in this fiasco.

And we are also the actual beneficiaries and comptrollers responsible for the land jurisdiction of this country and its rightful government. 

So that is why our actual legitimate unincorporated Jural Assemblies are meeting in every state and being set up in every county and that is also why American Common Law Courts —- not Martial Common Law Courts—- are being restored across the nation.  That’s why nine million Americans have stepped forward to serve as Continental Marshals — what used to be called “Federal Marshals”— to enforce the public and organic law of this nation.

The Great Fraud that began in 1860 is at an end.  And all I can say to all of you is: (1) step up and grab an oar, declare and record the fact that you don’t choose to be a “United States Citizen” nor act as a “citizen of the United States” and that you instead claim your birthright as an American State National; (2) get busy setting up your own county Jural Assemblies, electing your own Public Sheriff to enforce the Constitution and the Public Law of the Land, elect your own judges, court clerks, and set up your jury pools; (3) give notice to those who have been impersonating your lawful public officials while in fact occupying private corporate offices instead— let them know that they don’t represent you and that they are not agents of any American government and have no local authority; (4) spread the word and let it be heard around the world. 

The “United States” is not America and it never has been. 

The various foreign corporate entities ensconced in the District of Columbia were supposed to be providing nineteen well-defined governmental services under contract — nothing more or less — but over time, they usurped against their employers and established a lawless and pernicious and parasitic corporate counter-culture devoted to nothing beyond their own enrichment at any cost. 

Now they are being de-funded and the odious debts they racked up against the American People are being repudiated and many changes are being made to clean up the operations and replace the management of these venal organizations—- but it remains to you, the actual American People, to get up on your hind legs and do the job of “self-governance” and to learn your own history as a nation and to defend your nation against such fraud and usurpation.

Even the Great Sacred Cow, the actual Constitution, must be addressed and addressed intelligently in days to come. The Constitution made sense when it was adopted 227 years ago, but it allowed Britain to control American currency, American investment, American Trade Policy, and American Foreign Policy—- in exchange for Britain to act as our Trustee in these matters and to protect our “shipping”— our “commerce”— in the international jurisdiction of the sea.

Britain betrayed our trust and sought to mischaracterize us as its own employees and subjects instead of honoring our birthright identity as Americans and these false Trustees then additionally acted as Executors de Son Torte to pillage and plunder and attack our innocent and unsuspecting people through the agency of the “American Bar Association” and its members.  Thus, they did not honor their part of the Constitutional Agreement and are owed no consideration from us. In fact, we are owed damages that Britain can never repay or repair. 

Since 1946, the French Government has also gotten into the act and interfered with our lawful government and undermined our traditions and practiced self-interested fraud against us. 

The time has come for us to act with very clear-eyed vision and purpose.  There is no reason that we should be delegating any of our authority or any part of our responsibility to any foreign entity or corporation whatsoever.  We are fully competent and able to provide all of our own governmental services and have been so enabled for at least 175 years.  The Constitution as we have known it must ultimately and intelligently be dismantled and a new basis for our self-government must be established so that Americans have control of all jurisdictions, air, land, and sea, related to us and our country.

This will not be an easy or instant process, but it is one that must be recognized and engaged in honestly and wisely.

Those of us who have observed these evils and studied the history must teach others and each of the men and women who now step forward to act in favor of their local counties and states must do so with no thought of their own self-interest.  They must act as Fiduciary Deputies, fully accountable for all their actions and inactions. 

Only by accepting the responsibility of self-governance can we earn the peace and the prosperity we are heir to.

Dear Vladimir: It’s Not Us!

October 7th, 2016 by

http://www.paulstramer.net/2016/10/dear-vladimir-its-not-us.html

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

We are going to say some things that you, Mr. President, are already aware of. We say them because the American People are tragically unaware of these facts and they need to know:

American foreign trade and foreign policy have been controlled by Britain for 227 years.

This is one of the results of the original states contracting for “essential government services” from the United States, which is a British-controlled corporation headquartered in the foreign international enclave known as the District of Columbia.

Most Americans have never read the Definitive Treaty of Peace, Paris, 1783, which shows that King George remained the “prince” and “Arch-Treasurer” of the “United States”. Most Americans have never read the actual Constitution and grasped the fact that this agreement gave Britain control of American Trade and Foreign Policy.

We can now see why we have been kept at nearly constant war for most of our history: Britain has used us as its Bully Boy to cause trouble and engage in war for profit throughout the rest of the world, just as it is trying to do now in the Middle East.

As a spider at the center of its web, Britain pulls the strings and through its agencies—the United States and British Crown– wrecks havoc calculated to fill its coffers with no risk and no exposure to itself. 

While directing a US foreign policy that is plainly self-destructive and insane from the American standpoint, Queen Elizabeth pretends to have clean hands and so does the Lord Mayor of London— but the historical documents and the facts are the facts.

All the trouble we are having in the Mideast is caused by Britain, not America.

And it always has been.

The Americans want free access to the Persian Gulf, unmolested by anyone, for the purposes of Free Trade.  And that is the only legitimate interest America has in the Middle East.

We trust that the EU is competent to solve its own gas and oil supply problems with no assistance from us. 

They could embrace and use free energy technology to solve a great many dependency problems.  They could use LNG and ship in supplies and develop storage capacities like Japan and China.  They could direct their re-investment capital to their already existing oil development projects in the North Sea.

Instead, British Intelligence is working to influence the outcome of US elections and trying to start WWIII.  Their recent exposure of CIA false flag activities is especially ironic, since British Intelligence controls the CIA and mandates all its actions. 

If you dig deep enough, it is always Britain at the bottom of the dog pile, causing war and destruction for the entire rest of the world. 

They have never been willing to live on their own talents and resources and have chosen to be parasites instead.  They have built their successive empires on fraud and human enslavement and legal chicanery.  They have never given up feudalism.  They have never given up colonialism. 

Most recently, they have moved their financial operations to China, with the result that 800 loyal Chinese Generals have been purged, and Russia and the “United States” are being pitted against each other at every turn while China sits smug and brags about all the gold it suddenly has. 

And nobody questions this?   

Britain disrespects the Constitutional agreements it has with the Americans on one hand, and on the other, abuses American trust.  They have used us as the front-men for British aggression and self-interest for generations,. They have deliberately confused their own puppet, the United States, with America and the American People, so as to blame us for their treachery and wrong-doing.   

Let everyone always remember that the “United States” is not America.

Let us also plainly state before God and everyone, that Britain and its corporate shadow government doing business as the “United States” is a problem for the entire world, including the Americans.

This time, if anyone goes to war, let’s make sure we get the real culprits and address the actual problem once and for all, instead of stupidly bashing each other for their benefit.

Rumors are circulating of a “tactical nuclear exchange” between the British-controlled United States and Russia.  Let us observe that there is no such thing as a tactical nuclear exchange and that if such a thing happened, it would rapidly spread to global destruction–and that destruction would be the result of British meddling, guile, and greed. 

Instead of targeting the hapless Americans whose worst sin is gullibility, please focus your fire power on Britain?  And ask your Chinese allies about their new Best Friends? 

If the Earth is to be destroyed in a firestorm of nuclear bombs unleashed because of the endless dishonesty and greed of British commercial interests, at least let’s all have the satisfaction of taking the actual perpetrators down with us?

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Dear President Putin,

If you are goaded into nuking the free States of America, please make sure the first one get’s OBUMA! The State Nationals are not your enemy, they are just ignorant of their real status and have been brain washed all their life. Patriotic lies have been a powerful tool to involve us in one war after another, while the Banking Cartel laughs their ass off counting their profits.

All the Ways You Can Comply and Still Die During An Encounter with Police

 BLESSED ARE THE PEACE KEEPERS, WHO PROTECT THE PEOPLE FROM OPPRESSION!

OLDDOG

By John W. Whitehead
October 03, 2016

Police are specialists in violence. They are armed, trained, and authorized to use force. With varying degrees of subtlety, this colors their every action. Like the possibility of arrest, the threat of violence is implicit in every police encounter. Violence, as well as the law, is what they represent.”—Author Kristian Williams

How do you protect yourself from flying fists, choking hands, disabling electrified darts and killing bullets?

How do you defend yourself against individuals who have been indoctrinated into believing that they are superior to you, that their word is law, and that they have the power to take your life?

Most of all, how can you maintain the illusion of freedom when daily, Americans are being shot, stripped, searched, choked, beaten and tasered by police for little more than daring to frown, smile, question, challenge an order or just exist?

The short answer: you can’t.

Now for the long answer, which is far more complicated but still leaves us feeling hopeless, helpless and vulnerable to the fears, moods and misguided training of every cop on the beat.

If you ask police and their enablers what Americans should do to stay alive during encounters with law enforcement, they will tell you to comply (or die).

It doesn’t matter where you live—big city or small town—it’s the same scenario being played out over and over again in which Americans are being brainwashed into believing that anyone who wears a government uniform—soldier, police officer, prison guard—must be obeyed without question, while government agents, hyped up on their own authority and the power of their uniform, ride roughshod over the rights of the citizenry.

For example, a local law enforcement agency in Virginia has started handing out a guide—developed in cooperation with a group of African American pastors—on how to interact with police. The purpose of this government resource, according to the police, is to make sure citizens feel “comfortable” and know what to do when interacting with police in order to “promote public safety and respectful interaction.”

Curiously, nowhere in the “Guide to Interacting with Police” is there any mention of the Constitution, or the rights of the citizenry, other than the right to remain silent.

In fact, the primary point stressed throughout the bilingual guide aimed at “building trust and cooperation,” is that citizens should comply, cooperate, obey, not resist, not argue, not make threatening gestures or statements, avoid sudden movements, and submit to a search of their person and belongings.

The problem, of course, is what to do when compliance is not enough.

I’m not talking about the number of individuals—especially young people—who are being shot and killed by police for having a look-alike gun in their possession, such as a BB gun. I’m not even talking about people who have been shot for brandishing weapons at police, such as scissors.

I’m talking about the growing numbers of unarmed people are who being shot and killed for just standing a certain way, or moving a certain way, or holding something—anything—that police could misinterpret to be a gun, or igniting some trigger-centric fear in a police officer’s mind that has nothing to do with an actual threat to their safety.

Killed for standing in a “shooting stance.” In California, police opened fire on and killed a mentally challenged—unarmed—black man within minutes of arriving on the scene, allegedly because he removed a vape smoking device from his pocket and took a “shooting stance.”

Killed for holding a cell phone. Police in Arizona shot a man who was running away from U.S. Marshals after he refused to drop an object that turned out to be a cellphone.

Killed for behaving oddly and holding a baseball bat. Responding to a domestic disturbance call, Chicago police shot and killed 19-year-old college student Quintonio LeGrier who had reportedly been experiencing mental health problems and was carrying a baseball bat around the apartment where he and his father lived.

Killed for opening the front door. Bettie Jones, who lived on the floor below LeGrier, was also fatally shot—this time, accidentally—when she attempted to open the front door for police.

Killed for being a child in a car pursued by police. Jeremy David Mardis, six years old and autistic, died after being shot multiple times by Louisiana police in the head and torso. Police opened fire on the car—driven by Jeremy’s father, Chris Few, who was also shot—and then allegedly lied, claiming that they were attempting to deliver an outstanding warrant, that Few resisted arrest, that he shot at police (no gun was found), and that he tried to ram his car into a police cruiser. Body camera footage refuted the police’s claims.

Killed for attacking police with a metal spoon. In Alabama, police shot and killed a 50-year-old man who reportedly charged a police officer while holding “a large metal spoon in a threatening manner.”

Killed for running in an aggressive manner holding a tree branch. Georgia police shot and killed a 47-year-old man wearing only shorts and tennis shoes who, when first encountered, was sitting in the woods against a tree, only to start running towards police holding a stick in an “aggressive manner.

Killed for crawling around naked. Atlanta police shot and killed an unarmed man who was reported to have been “acting deranged, knocking on doors, crawling around on the ground naked.” Police fired two shots at the man after he reportedly starting running towards them.

Killed for hunching over in a defensive posture. Responding to a domestic trouble call, multiple officers with the Baltimore County police forced their way inside a home where, fearing for their safety and the safety of others,” three officers opened fire on an unarmed 41-year-old man who was hunched over in a defensive posture. The man was killed in front of his two young daughters and their mother.

Killed because a police officer accidentally pulled out his gun instead of his taser. An Oklahoma man suspected of trying to sell an illegal handgun was shot and killed after a 73-year-old reserve deputy inadvertently fired his gun instead of his taser. “Oh! I shot him! I’m sorry!” the deputy cried out.

Killed for wearing dark pants and a basketball jersey. Donnell Thompson, a mentally disabled 27-year-old described as gentle and shy, was shot and killed after police—searching for a carjacking suspect reportedly wearing similar clothing—encountered him lying motionless in a neighborhood yard. Police “only” opened fire with an M4 rifle after Thompson first failed to respond to their flash bang grenades and then started running after being hit by foam bullets.

Killed for telling police you lawfully own a firearm and have a conceal-and-carry permit. Philando Castile was shot and killed during a routine traffic stop allegedly over a broken tail light. As he was reaching for his license and registration, Castile explained to police that he had a  conceal-and-carry permit. That’s all it took for police to shoot Castile four times in the presence of his girlfriend and her 4-year-old daughter.

Killed for leaving anywhere at all when a police officer pulls up. Deravis Caine Rogers was killed after starting to drive away from an apartment complex right around the same time as a police officer pulled up. Despite the fact that the police officer had no reason to believe Rogers was a threat or was suspected of any illegal activity, the officer fired into Rogers’ passenger side window.

Killed for driving while deaf. In North Carolina, a state trooper shot and killed 29-year-old Daniel K. Harris—who was deaf—after Harris initially failed to pull over during a traffic stop.

Killed for being homeless. Los Angeles police shot an unarmed homeless man after he failed to stop riding his bicycle and then proceeded to run from police.

Killed for being old and brandishing a shoehorn. John Wrana, a 95-year-old World War II veteran, lived in an assisted living center, used a walker to get around, and was shot and killed by police who mistook the shoehorn in his hand for a 2-foot-long machete and fired multiple beanbag rounds from a shotgun at close range.

Killed for having your car break down on the road. Terence Crutcher, unarmed and black, was shot and killed by Oklahoma police after his car broke down on the side of the road. Crutcher was shot in the back while walking towards his car with his hands up.

Killed for holding a garden hose. California police were ordered to pay $6.5 million after they opened fire on a man holding a garden hose, believing it to be a gun. Douglas Zerby was shot 12 times and pronounced dead on the scene.

Shot seven times for peeing outdoors. Eighteen-year-old Keivon Young was shot seven times by police from behind while urinating outdoors. Young was just zipping up his pants when he heard a commotion behind him and then found himself struck by a hail of bullets from two undercover cops. Allegedly officers mistook Young—5’4,” 135 lbs., and guilty of nothing more than taking a leak outdoors—for a 6’ tall, 200 lb. murder suspect whom they later apprehended. Young was charged with felony resisting arrest and two counts of assaulting a peace officer.

Now you can make all kinds of excuses to justify these shootings, and in fact that’s exactly what you’ll hear from politicians, police unions, law enforcement officials and individuals who are more than happy to march in lockstep with the police. However, to suggest that a good citizen is a compliant citizen and that obedience will save us from the police state is not only recklessly irresponsible, but it is also deluded and out of touch with reality, because in the American police state, compliance is no longer enough.

Frankly, as these incidents make clear, the only truly compliant, submissive and obedient citizen in a police state is a dead one.

If you’re starting to feel somewhat overwhelmed, intimidated and fearful for your life and your property, you should be.

As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, “we the people” are now at the mercy of law enforcement officers who have almost absolute discretion to decide who is a threat, what constitutes resistance, and how harshly they can deal with the citizens they were appointed to “serve and protect.”

Sad, isn’t it, how quickly we have gone from a nation of laws—where the least among us had just as much right to be treated with dignity and respect as the next person (in principle, at least)—to a nation of law enforcers (revenue collectors with weapons) who treat us all like suspects and criminals?
