Congress Pushes Obuma backed National Biometric ID for Americans

After largely failing to prod state governments into developing a national identification system known as “REAL ID,” Republican lawmakers in Congress are once again pushing an Obama-backed scheme that would force every American to have a national ID card containing sensitive biometric data. The controversial plan, embedded in an immigration-enforcement bill, has been in the works for years, but has consistently been met with stiff opposition from liberty-minded grassroots organizations and activists. While the plan has failed in previous Congresses thanks to a groundswell of opposition, critics of the measure say that without prompt action, the unconstitutional scheme could soon become a reality.

The legislation, officially dubbed the “Legal Workforce Act” (H.R. 1147), is ostensibly aimed at preventing illegal immigrants from obtaining jobs in the United States. Among the most troubling elements highlighted by critics, though, is that the bill would purport to mandate a national ID card for every American as a condition of working. It would also force every employer in America to purchase and use so-called “E-Verify technology” to check with Washington, D.C., as to whether potential employees have government permission to work. Finally, it would create a massive federal database containing sensitive data on virtually every person in the country — a database that could easily be expanded to include even more information.

While establishment lawmakers on both sides of the aisle seem fond of the measure, critics are sounding the alarm about the bill and its implications for liberty. In an e-mail to supporters urging them to help crush the unconstitutional legislation, for example, former Congressman Ron Paul (R-Texas), in his capacity as chairman of Campaign for Liberty, warned that the national ID scheme would be a nightmare. Among other concerns, the two-time GOP presidential contender noted that it would allow federal bureaucrats to include biometric information — potentially including fingerprints, retinal scans, and more — that could and likely would be eventually used as a tracking device. It would also make it illegal for anyone to work in the United States without obtaining the national ID.

“Every time any citizen applies for a job, the government would know — and you can bet its only a matter of time until ‘ID scans’ will be required to make even routine purchases, as well,” Dr. Paul warned, adding that “statists in both parties have been fighting to ram their radical national ID-database scheme into law” for years. “In fact, this scheme was a key portion of the infamous so-called ‘Comprehensive Immigration Reform’ bills both parties have tried to ram through.” Now, Paul said, the statists believe they have found a way to impose their national ID: Drop the amnesty provisions and focus on immigration “security.”

According to Dr. Paul, a constitutionalist who served in Congress for more than 20 years, the term “security” is being used as “nothing more than a buzzword meant to trick Americans from all over the country into thinking that Congress is finally going to seal our southern border.” In reality, though, it means something much different. “The ‘security’ members of both parties in the U.S. House want doesn’t target any U.S. border,” Paul added. “Instead, it’s meant to create an all-out police state within them.”

Paul also warned that the national database required for the ID regime could easily expand to include information on gun ownership, medical records, political affiliation, and “virtually anything else at the stroke of a President’s pen.” In fact, the stakes are so high, he said, that this type of battle is often decisive in “whether a country remains free or continues sliding toward tyranny.” Existing abuses such as lawless NSA spying, IRS harassment, and more offer further evidence that the feds cannot be trusted with such Orwellian tools to track, monitor, and ultimately control Americans.

Despite the dangers, the legislation has already been passed out of the House Judiciary Committee, getting a vote just three days after it was introduced — and the markup took place before the text of the bill was even available online. “The speed with which this bill was rushed through Committee means the House leadership is very serious about passing this bill into law as soon as possible,” warned Paul, urging Americans to fight back immediately to prevent the bill from passing. He also warned about potential “bipartisan compromises” that could be even worse than the original.

The legislation was introduced by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), who has a dismal 54 percent in the Freedom Index, a tool provided by this magazine that scores lawmakers’ votes based on adherence to the U.S. Constitution they all swore to uphold. The controversial bill already has dozens of co-sponsors in the House, too. It is being publicly touted by Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), who claimed it would bring the “nation’s employment eligibility system into the 21st century,” as well as chief sponsor Smith.

“The Legal Workforce Act turns off the jobs magnet that attracts so many illegal immigrants to the United States,” Rep. Smith said in a statement promoting the measure, ignoring the fact that amnesty and the porous borders have been crucial in encouraging illegal immigration. “The bill expands the E-Verify system and applies it to all U.S. employers. Equally important, the American people support E-Verify,” Smith argued, citing polls showing that Americans overwhelmingly support stronger laws to stop businesses from hiring illegal immigrants. “This bill is a common-sense approach that will reduce illegal immigration and save jobs for legal workers. It deserves the support of everyone who wants to put the interests of American workers first.”

The bill also has the support of several major lobbying powerhouses — including some, such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, that are infamous for their support of granting amnesty to illegal immigrants. Other organizations backing the bill include immigration enforcement-focused Numbers USA, the National Restaurant Association, the National Association of Homebuilders, and several others. However, in the past, similar national-ID schemes have met with major opposition from groups including Downsize DC, the Rutherford Institute, the American Policy Center, the Taxpayers Protection Alliance, the Republican Liberty Caucus, the U.S. Bill of Rights Foundation, Conservative Republican Women, and many more.

In a letter to lawmakers about the same legislation in the 112th Congress (2011-2012), that broad coalition of organizations blasted the bill as an affront to freedom and the Constitution. Among other concerns, they said it “violates individual civil liberties such as the right to work and free speech; mandates a costly job-killing regulatory burden that cripples small business; requires employers to become enforcement agents of the federal government; and encourages identify theft of law-abiding citizens.” The bill should never have even left committee, according to opponents.

“It is anathema to limited government, the right to privacy, free enterprise and prosperity,” the coalition said in the letter to members of Congress. “It violates the philosophy of the Constitution and intent of the Framers by subordinating the liberty of citizens to the administrative convenience of government. And the Founding Fathers would have rebelled against such a staggering Federal intrusion into every workplace in the nation and our personal civil liberties.”

As The New American reported as far back as 2010, the same plot to impose a national ID on America has been pushed before by some of the leading Big Government-mongers in Congress. The “bipartisan” amnesty-national ID legislation pushed by Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and backed by Obama in 2010 eventually failed due to a massive uprising against legalizing illegal immigrants. Back then, though, promoters of the biometric national ID scheme were boasting about their machinations.

“Our plan has four pillars: requiring biometric Social Security cards to ensure that illegal workers cannot get jobs; fulfilling and strengthening our commitments on border security and interior enforcement; creating a process for admitting temporary workers; and implementing a tough but fair path to legalization for those already here,” wrote Graham and Schumer in a joint op-ed promoting their legislation. “We would require all U.S. citizens and legal immigrants who want jobs to obtain a high-tech, fraud-proof Social Security card.” At the time, Obama called the proposal “a promising, bipartisan framework which can and should be the basis for moving forward.”

With the amnesty provision now out of the more recent bill — Obama is using executive decrees funded by the GOP Congress in a bid to provide amnesty anyway — analysts say the national ID plot stands a much greater chance of coming to fruition. In addition to being unconstitutional by virtue of the fact that the Constitution grants no power over identification systems to the federal government, history shows that national ID schemes are dangerous and very often abused by authorities. Considering the U.S. government’s track record, Americans can be sure that, if the plot becomes law, the ID regime will be eventually be abused as well.

If solving the illegal immigration crisis is truly the goal, there is a much simpler solution. Rather than foisting an unconstitutional national ID scheme on Americans and building a massive database, Congress could stop funding Obama’s amnesty decrees and ensure that the borders are secure. For that to happen, though, Americans who value liberty and the Constitution must get involved.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Dear Mr. Congresscritter:

 According to the lies my generation were told when growing up, the Constitution was composed to protect American’s from assholes like you. For whatever reason, we believed the lies with our whole being all of our life, and now we are supposed to accept all the bullshit you are forcing down our throat as though it never existed. Please take this to the bank, we are not going to live out our lives being told which hand to use, and which direction to wipe our ass. You will pay for your treason one way or another. You will have to live out your lives underground and surrounded by armed guards, and if you become over-confident and emerge from your hole some hot head will end your miserable existence with a Malakoff Cocktail, or a well aimed brick. I am not saying it will be me because I am too old and feeble, but I assure you when I read about it I will have an orgasm that beats anything ever experienced from copulation. If there is any chance that you have just a thimble full of intelligence left, may I suggest that you start enforcing the Constitution for your own protection. And, if it’s possible you have family that you love, please consider what some out of control nasty S.O.B. might do to them. Real American’s have shed their blood and loved one’s for their freedoms, so don’t make the mistake of thinking they will lay down and be exterminated with no resistance. They are not afraid of dying and will persevere with or without guns, knives or ball bats. Can you say the same for yourself? I doubt it! You were born cowards, and will die the same way. America will never die! Olddog said that, and if you don’t like it, go piss up a rope, or OBUMAS ass.

Madness Coming To Gold Market: “There Are Thirty to Fifty Owners For Each Ounce of Gold That’s Out There”

March 28th, 2015 by

Though the price of gold has seen a significant drop over the last two years from its all-time highs of about $1900 per ounce, many experts and analysts believe that Western central banks and their colleagues at major financial institutions have been manipulating the price.

The rampant manipulation is believed to stem, in part, from the formerly Rothschild-owned London Gold Fix, an organization made up of five large banks that make a daily determination of what the price of gold should be.

It is this unilateral control by Western banks that recently prompted the Chinese to create their own Shanghai Gold Exchange. What separates the two is that the Chinese will be using their currency, the Yuan, as the reserve rather than the U.S. Dollar. Moreover, unlike their European counterparts, the Chinese will be trading in actual physical dollars.

The Daily Coin explains:

The product is gold. When gold is bought or sold [on the Shanghai Gold Exchange] a person actually takes delivery of the gold.

That is not the case in London. In London the price is based two factors:  1) the “futures” market in New York. This is where people buy a contract for future gold. Gold that may or may not exist today but they are willing to purchase today and take “delivery” in the future. 2) The other factor is a very small group of banksters sitting around and determining what the price should be. You know, good-ole-boys club.

 

It is this process by central banks in the West that will ultimately lead to the destruction of the paper gold market as it exists today.

The banks operating in these paper markets do so with gold that they don’t own. They trade in paper receipts. The reason that’s a problem is that there are anywhere from thirty to fifty “owners” for every ounce of gold out there.

Craig Hemke of the TF Metals Report discusses the Western gold scheme in a recent interview withThe Daily Coin and says that when the music finally stops there are going to be a lot of people who think they own a certain amount of gold but all they’ll really be holding is a worthless paper ticket:

There’s a lot of central bank gold…and even privately held gold… that has been leased through these bullion banks. These bullion, they say ‘we’ll pay you one percent because your gold is just sitting there collecting dust but we’ll pay you interest if you lease it to us.’

And then they go and they dump it, they move it physically in the market in the hopes that they’ll be able to, when that lease comes due, they’ll get the gold back and then repay it back to whoever loaned it to them in the first place. And they try to match all those up.

And the hole that they’re digging just keeps getting deeper and deeper.

There was news last week that now after about a year and a half after Venezuela repatriated their 80 or 90 tons of gold that now Goldman Sachs and Credit Suisse are down there trying to talk them into leasing it back out. Boy, they’d be crazy if they did.
That’s all part of the process.

‘Hey, give us that and we promise we’ll give it back to you a year or two from now, no problem at all… we can manage this’

[…]

You know, the first rule when you’re in a hole is to stop digging. Right? That’s not what they’re doing. They’re digging away frantically trying to maintain the status quo.

I firmly believe there are multiple… thirty maybe fifty beneficial owners for each ounce of gold that’s out there… Thirty or fifty folks that think they own that ounce and they’re all going to show up when the music stops thinking that they’re going to take delivery or lay claim to that ounce.

And that’s when the madness really starts.

When will that be? Probably not tomorrow. But as any confidence scheme eventually unravels, and this one will unravel too. It’s just a matter of time.

The problem is easy to see. Should just two people show up claiming the same ounce of gold one of them is coming home empty handed. What Craig Hemke describes is a scenario where as many as fifty different people are going to claim ownership for the same ounce of gold. The same is likely true for the silver market.

And now that the Chinese are dealing directly with physical gold it is only a matter of time before the entire scheme collapses. In fact, the Chinese and Russians know it’s coming and that’s why they’ve been furiously purchasing gold on the open market.

The solution should be obvious: If you invest in gold make sure you hold the physical asset in your hand.

HOUSE BILL SEEKS TO ABOLISH PATRIOT ACT

March 27th, 2015 by

http://www.infowars.com/house-bill-seeks-to-abolish-patriot-act/

Would block NSA snooping, protect whistleblowers

3-27-2015 1-02-57 PM

by STEVE WATSON | INFOWARS.COM | MARCH 26, 2015

 

Legislation introduced into the House of Representatives Tuesday is designed to abolish the draconian PATRIOT Act and restore protections under the Constitution that have been violated, according to its authors.

The bill, dubbed The Surveillance State Repeal Act, H.R. 1466 [PDF], would also prohibit US spooks from plating backdoors into technology, as well as provide extended protections for whistleblowers such as Edward Snowden.

“The Patriot Act contains many provisions that violate the Fourth Amendment and have led to a dramatic expansion of our domestic surveillance state,” said Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY), who co-authored the legislation with Representative Mark Pocan (D-WI).

“Our Founding Fathers fought and died to stop the kind of warrantless spying and searches that the Patriot Act and the FISA Amendments Act authorize. It is long past time to repeal the Patriot Act and reassert the constitutional rights of all Americans.” Massie noted.

In addition to repealing the PATRIOT ACT, passed three days after the 9/11 attacks, the legislation would also abolish the 2008 FISA Amendments Act, which the NSA has largely used to claim it’s mass spying program is legal.

H.R. 1466 states that any future snooping involving American citizens would be subject to strict oversight and require warrants in all cases, as well as probable cause.

“The warrantless collection of millions of personal communications from innocent Americans is a direct violation of our constitutional right to privacy,” said Congressman Pocan.

“Revelations about the NSA’s programs reveal the extraordinary extent to which the program has invaded Americans’ privacy. I reject the notion that we must sacrifice liberty for security- we can live in a secure nation which also upholds a strong commitment to civil liberties.” Pocan added.

The legislation would also prohibit the government from forcing tech companies to install backdoors in their products to enable NSA surveillance. Law enforcement lobbying groups have been pushing for this for sometime, while security experts and those within the tech sector say it would be disastrous.

The new legislation would also provide for an independent controller to receive complaints from whistleblowers, and to protect them by reporting any valid information to Congress on their behalf.

Unfortunately, the bill stands very little chance of passing, given that so many bought and paid for representatives in Congress largely support the unconstitutional PATRIOT act and do not wish to rock the surveillance state boat.

All those who support freedom from government snooping should be encouraged to express their support for this legislation. Representatives can be identified and contacted here.

Do Russia NATO Military Drills Signal Something Ominous?

March 26th, 2015 by

While most individuals assume that both historical and future events arise as a result of a series of massive and seismic actions, the truth is often that a whimper precedes the bang. While many events are indeed sparked by a single definitive act, it is also true that, in the events leading up to the defining moment, rarely does the general public realize that they are walking along the path to such an event. Even rarer is the individual who realizes that this path was already carved out by high-level players in the halls of banks, corporations, governments, and secret societies long before the destination is ever reached. 

For instance, most scholars present the events leading up to World War I as an immediate reaction to the assassination of Franz Ferdinand by a shadowy semi-secret society that was not fundamentally connected to any other secret establishment. The truth, however, is that not only was the Black Hand a part of a Revolutionary Freemasonic structure and the war itself a carefully orchestrated plot that involved the personal attention and assembly of King Edward VII as well as British and French Freemasonic Lodges, but it was not solely a reaction to the assassination of Ferdinand. 

More importantly for the context of this article is the fact that, for thirty days after the assassination, life, for the most part, continued on without any apparent changes in the lives of the general public. Indeed, in the month after the assassination of Ferdinand, the majority of the world’s population hadreturned to what has been described as a “dreamlike trance” of ignorance even as the declarations of war were being prepared behind the scenes. 

The time of this “dreamlike trance” – July 1914 – may very well bear relevance to the time in which we find ourselves today. While we must do our best to avoid sensationalism, the question of US-Russia relations, US imperialism, and the geopolitical imperatives of the US, Russia, China, and NATO compounded by the overwhelming ignorance of the general public is one that should cause some concern as to whether or not we find ourselves in a similar situation today. 

 

For instance, over the last few months, Russian and NATO war games have become increasingly aggressive despite being largely ignored in the mainstream media except for the obvious propaganda opportunities. Any real and legitimate discussion about what these drills may actually mean has obviously been left out with the Western mainstream press using them to simply promote the infantile narrative that NATO’s drills are for readiness and protection of the free world against the aggressive Hitlerian Russians while the Russian drills are preparations to storm Eastern Europe and re-impose the Iron Curtain.

Virtually since the conflict began, US/NATO have provoked the situation even further (quite the feat after having engineered the Euromaidan color revolution to begin with) by arming and training Ukrainian fascists and by holding military “drills” across Eastern Europe and even Western Ukraine.

While the fact that the Euromaidan movement and the subsequent ouster of Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych was initiated by the United States and NATO is clear enough, which side of the geopolitical tug of war initiated the first round of military drills over Ukraine is not as easily determined. While Russia’s position is undoubtedly defensive in regards to Ukraine, both sides of the geopolitical conflict have been flexing their muscles since the crisis began in earnest.

Early on, of course, these drills appeared as mere “muscle flexing” between to world powers intent on showing off each other’s military strength as well as their commitment to their respective positions. Yet, as time moved on these military “drills” developed into something more physically imposing, suggesting that the drills were in fact a public but subtle warning that military force would be met with equal or greater military force.

Despite reports by the Western mainstream press suggesting a “Russian Troop Buildup Along the Border with Ukraine” which was, in actuality, nothing more thanphotographs of drills that had taken place in August of 2013 (months before the US-backed protests toppled Yanukovych), military drills appear to have been conducted in tandem with one another and by both sides of the conflict equally. 

For instance, in May, 2014, both the United States and Russia conducted large-scale nuclear war drills within a week of one another. Despite the apocalyptic nature of the drills, the maneuvers were largely seen as a show of strength and veiled threat between the two countries.

The next month, Vladmir Putin ordered snap military drills to take place across central Russia which were the largest since Russia annexed Crimea a few months earlier. In August, Russia took part in another drill near the Ukrainian border.

In September, 2014, the United States and NATO then went further to stage military drills inside Western Ukraine even as intense fighting was taking place in the countries’ eastern region. It was during this Rapid Trident exercise that MH17 crashed over Ukraine. Another NATO drill, BREEZE 2014, concluded on July 17th, the day that MH17 crashed and involved commercial traffic monitoring as well as “reaction to asymmetric threat warnings, anti-submarine warfare and artillery firing.” BREEZE 2014 also involved “commercial air traffic monitoring.”

The most assertive and concerning military drills from the Russian side (only to be eclipsed by the drills of the American side taking place at the same time) came after nine-day absence of Vladmir Putin and involved the infantry, Air Force, Spetsnaz troops, and other military branches all across the country. The drills were set to practice repelling a land-sea-air military invasion on its western, northern, southern, and eastern fronts. 

As RT reported at the time,

Motorized infantry, combat aviation and Spetznaz troops have been put on alert in all nine time zones of the Russian Federation, including the Volga region, Urals, Western Siberia, the Far East region and the Pacific, the North Caucasus and along the borders of NATO member states from the Arctic through to the Baltic and Black Sea.

RT reports the “drill” deployments as follows:

The operational zone of the Northern Fleet’s drills has been expanded to the Norwegian Sea, and the number of deployed naval task groups has been increased to five, the Defense Ministry reported. 

“The commanding staff of the Northern Fleet has decided to build up the contingent involved in training missions to defend Russia’s borders in the Arctic,” the ministry said in a statement. 

More than 20 ships of the Russia’s Baltic Fleet are out at sea conducting defense drills, the Russian Western Military District’s press service announced on Wednesday.

A tactical group of the Russian Black Sea fleet will hold military exercises on Thursday, targeting decoy enemy bombers and battleships.

Paratroopers from the Ivanovo Airborne Division have been relocated inside the Arctic Circle next to the Norwegian border on Ilyushin Il-76 airlifters to train countering subversive groups, maintain anti-aircraft defense, perform engineering and radiation reconnaissance and sharpen field camouflage skills.

The Defense Ministry reported on Wednesday that Russian marines from Temryuk in south Russia’s Krasnodar region have been put on full combat readiness and are training next to the Kerch Strait connecting the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov. The units are conducting exercises in conditions similar to real military activities, using simulation tools to train counteracting subversive groups and repelling enemy amphibious assault landings.

Russia’s strategic command has put mechanized troops of the Eastern Military District, deployed on the island of Sakhalin in the Pacific, on the highest levels of combat alert. Up to 3,000 troops and nearly 1,000 military vehicles are training defense of the coast in close cooperation with the Air Force.

Over 30 army aviation crews are being relocated from airfields in the Leningrad and Smolensk regions to a military airfield in the Arctic. Mil Mi-24 and Mi-8 helicopters are set to cover over 1,500 kilometers with a stopover for refueling in the Karelia region.

About 80 military pilots of the Eastern Command are taking part in ‘Airdarts’ contest that includes performing air stunts, bomb-dropping and unguided missiles firing, using Su-25, Su-27SM, Su-24M2 assault and fighter jets.

Assault helicopter pilots are training live ammo shooting, ultra-low flying and evading air defenses.

Over 2,000 engineer troops and 350 special vehicles of the Central Military Command are training in demining all types of military explosives, using brand-new standoff IED detection vehicles.

The ongoing snap check of the military involves about 76,000 troops, over 10,000 units of military hardware and special equipment, 65 battleships,16 support vessels, 15 submarines, 200 warplanes and helicopters.

The drills being held in Russia are the largest yet and represent an escalation in the crisis despite a shaky ceasefire in Ukraine.

Still, the American side has responded concurrently with drills of its own, flooding a number of Baltic states with US/NATO military personnel and equipment. Operation Atlantic Resolve has resulted in thousands of US troops alone and hundreds of US tanks flooding several of these Baltic countries receiving a mixed welcome from the locals. This drill has resulted in what has been referred to as a “line of troops.” 

RT quotes Col. Michael Foster of the 173rd Airborne Brigade as stating that, “As you connect countries, there is almost a line of US troops.” 

The host nations include Latvia, Lithuania, and Estonia as well as Poland, Romania, Bulgaria and Western Ukraine. The Black Sea is also a site of US/NATO “drills.”

These troops are being deployed not only in countries that border Russia but in areas that themselves are physically close to the Russian borderline. 

Thus, with the Russian forces on high alert and with virtually the entire country being put in place under the pretense of “drilling” to repel any land, air, or sea based force that may try to invade Russia (as well as “subversive” groups) and the US military’s “line of troops” placed right at Russia’s doorstep, one would be justified in wondering whether or not Russia and the US/NATO are truly taking part in legitimate military drills – even for the show of strength and deterrence – or if they are actually putting their military personnel in place for a direct military conflict.

In other words, it is a legitimate question to wonder whether or not Russia and NATO are engaging in troop placement under the guise of drills for a real war. 

Indeed, one would be entirely justified in wondering whether we are seeing the chess pieces being set for a major military confrontation beginning in Eastern Europe but finding its way to North America and eventually enveloping the entire world.

Given the track record of both governments, it is entirely plausible to believe that, if both nations were indeed placing their military personnel in strategic positions, the cover of “drills” could and would be used so as not to forewarn the general public or cause panic in society and hamper the war effort. In addition, the cover of military drills and exercises is obviously a tactic available to governments whereby they are able to position military personnel in prime locations before any actual combat has taken place.[1] 

With all of this in mind, we must begin to ask ourselves, “Are the American people in a dreamlike trance?” 

“Are we in July, 1914?”

Why Hillary Clinton Must Not Become President

THE INTERNATIONAL FORECASTERWhy Hillary Clinton Must Not Become President
by James Corbett
corbettreport.com
March 21, 2015

As any number of recent derailments will bear witness, some freight trains are so big, so unstoppable, and carry so much forward momentum that putting the brakes on them is virtually impossible. They’re coming, like it or not, so the only way out is to plow ahead or fly off the rails. Such is the case with the Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential run.

No one should be surprised that the campaign is already soaked in scandal before it has even officially begun. And no one should be surprised when she goes ahead with it anyway. Like it or not, here she comes.

The list of reasons why Hillary must not be allowed in the Oval Office is lengthy, but any list that did not include the “Clinton Body Count” at the very top would be burying the lede. The body count (newly updated for Hillary’s 2016 run!) is a list of murders, “suicides” and suspicious deaths of people who have crossed paths with the Clinton political machine and not lived to tell the tale. Although some of the people included on the list are questionable or rely on speculative leaps to associate with the Clintons (JFK, Jr., anyone?), some, like Vince Foster, are by now widely recognized to be examples of politically-motivated assassinations.

As I elaborated in a previous episode of The Corbett Report podcast, Vince Foster was a former partner with Hillary at her Rose Law Firm in Arkansas who, as White House Deputy Council, had been tasked with forming the Presidential Blind Trust. After an unusually lengthy 6 months of work on the trust, and after penning a memo stressing that Whitewater is “a can of worms that you shouldn’t open” and giving a speech about personal integrity, he confided to his wife that he was thinking of resigning the position. He scheduled a personal meeting with President Clinton on July 21, 1993, presumably for the purpose of tendering his resignation, but he never made it to the meeting; he was found dead at Fort Mercy Park the evening of July 20th.

There was no White House logbook entry of his exit from his office that day. His office was looted by Clinton’s Chief of Staff before police had even identified the body as Foster’s and his documents (including those from his personal safe) were taken to the Clintons’ private quarters. The position the body was found in was so unusual that investigators were forced to note that in their decades of experience they had “never seen a weapon or gun positioned in a suicide’s hand in such an orderly fashion” (an opinion backed up by independent forensic experts). Neither Foster’s fingerprints nor his blood were on the gun, and his wounds contained no gunpowder or bullet fragments that could be matched to the gun. His wife wasasked to identify a different gun than the one found at the crime scene. Witnesses claimed altering of testimony by the FBI and even filed lawsuits for witness tampering. His death, needless to say, was ruled a “suicide” and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit not only prevented the Wall Street Journal from publishing a story about a sealed report on the case, it stopped them from publishing the court’s own ruling.

Foster’s death is illustrative of the types of cases found in the Clinton Body Count. Journalists, lawyers, political associates and underlings, bodyguards, fundraisers, witnesses, mistresses, victims of harassment; some of the highly suspicious deaths surrounding the Clintons may be explicable, but the list in total, like the list of dead JFK witnesses, stretches the bonds of “coincidence.”

Sadly, the Clintons’ political record offers no divergence from the bloodthirsty quest for power that such a body count would suggest. Needless to say, both Bill and Hillary areadmitted globalists, committed to “Poppie” Bush’s vision of the New World Order. Bill (admittedly) attended the 1991 Bilderberg conference shortly before his surprise election and Hillary (secretly) attended the 2008 Bilderberg conference where a backroom deal was (allegedly) struck to make her Secretary of State in return for conceding the presidency to (hand-picked puppet) Obama. Hillary “joked” that the CFR offices being so close to the State Dept. office meant she didn’t have far to go to receive her orders. One CIA source hasasserted that Bill was recruited by the CIA as part of “Operation Chaos” during his student days at Oxford and another confirmed that he had filed a CIA informant report for the agency at a peace event in Oslo in 1969.

No surprise, then, that the years that Bill presided as Governor of Arkansas with Hillary as his partner-in-crime saw the state racked by scandal, cover-up and controversy. One of the most egregious of these connections is the drug running that went on in Mena, Arkansas as part of the CIA’s Iran-Contra connections. Terry Reed, one of the infamous Air America pilots running opium and heroin out of Laos for the CIA during the Vietnam war, talked openly about the CIA’s operations in Mena, and Barry Seal, a confirmed covert CIA pilot and drug smuggler, moved his operation to the Mena airport in the early 1980s. All of this occurred under Clintons’ (allegedly vacuum-like) nose during his time of governor, a fact that has been repeatedly brought out and covered up in the decades since.

The Mena connection is only the most spectacular of Clinton’s many scandals during his time as governor, however. The Arkansas Development Finance Authority (ADFA), created in 1985 at Clinton’s urging, was, as chief issuer of the state’s bonds, a license to print money. Its structure had been drafted specifically to keep its decision-making process opaque to the public, but the main recipients of ADFA money was no secret: Bill’s election campaign, his circle of friends, and Hillary’s Rose Law Firm. According to longtime Clinton associate Larry Nichols in The Clinton Chronicles:

“If you needed a million dollars, you had to get your application handled by the Rose Law Firm, pay them $50,000. There were five other companies in the state of Arkansas that were actually more qualified in bond structuring and applications, but Rose Law Firm got ‘em all. I started checking around, and I kept asking, well you know, one thing’s bothering me — to the comptroller, Bill Wilson. ‘You know, how did people make payments on these loans?’ He looked at me, he said, ‘They don’t.’”

Hillary’s own record as legislator is no less defined by controversy and scandal, and her hands are no less covered in blood than her husband’s. A war hawk who seemingly has never seen an opportunity for American military involvement that she didn’t like, she voted for theAuthorization for Use of Military Force that is the carte blanche for Bush, Obama and any future president to wage any type of war, invasion, or “kinetic military action” they like in the name of the “war on terror.” She voted for the Iraq War (before she pretended to be against it). She presided over the NATO destruction of Libya as Secretary of State and openly gloated about the assassination of Gaddafi while the TV cameras were rolling. She is infamously neck deep in the Benghazi scandal and has been a rabid supporter of the State Department neo-Nazis who led the Ukraine coup.

Give her extra points for occasional honesty, though. At least she admits that the US created Al Qaeda and has supported them in their struggle against their mutual enemy, Assad.

3-25-2015 12-55-24 PM

Against a record like this, Hillary’s other transgressions — transgressions that would be enough to scuttle any other candidate all on their own — seem minor in comparison. She is abominable to those who serve under her, with assignment to her Secret Service detail considered a form of punishment. Her press team is infamously secretive and hostile to reporters and the public. She is an inveterate liar, going so far as to adoptridiculous fake accents to ingratiate herself to any given audience. She ordered diplomats to spy on UN officials.

Some would wonder how she could still be a serious contender for president given all of the foregoing. Those who know how the two-party duopoly really works will know that this resume in fact makes her the perfect candidate for the banksters and well-connected globalists who actually control the Oval Office. The real question is how can the nightmare of a Hillary Clinton presidency be averted before it comes to fruition.

If you believe the press surrounding an upcoming film on Barry Seal, it may be a movie that blows the lid off the Clintons’ deep dark secrets. The movie is to be directed by Ron Howardand may star Tom Cruise as Seal. Although Hollywood can occasionally tell these types of stories in non-whitewashy ways, as Kill The Messenger supposedly did (I haven’t seen it), I’m personally very doubtful that any big budget Ron Howard/Tom Cruise popcorn flick is going to indict two living presidents as drug runners for the world to see, especially in an election year. In other words: don’t hold your breath for the Barry Seal flick to even get made, let alone get into the intricacies of Bush, Clinton and CIA drug running.

As I discuss in my most recent video at corbettreport.com, Bill Clinton’s seemingly never-ending list of sexual molestation and harassment allegations could disgrace the Clintons and keep Hillary out of office…if the story gains traction. Of course all it takes is for a relatively obscure comedian to tell a comedy club to “google Bill Cosby rape” for Cosby to become the number one story in America for weeks on end and to effectively end the comedian’s career. But a president who has almost the exact same record of rape allegations and out-of-court settlements? Hardly a peep in the media. There is the occasional story about this in the establishment press, but unless “google Bill Clinton rape” goes mega-viral, don’t hold your breath for the New York Times or 60 Minutes to do an in-depth story on this either.

Of all the Clintons’ many Achilles heels, perhaps the one that is most likely to actually gain traction is Hillary’s email woes. As we all know by now (heck, even Obama knew), Hillary set up a private email server to conduct official government business. As we also know by now, this is likely illegal. Not Clinton Body Count illegal, of course, or CIA drug running illegal, but hey, it was tax evasion that brought down Capone, so you never know. And this scandal has the added bonus that it plays into the Republicans’ show trial on Benghazi so there is some left/right meat to be chewed on here. Of course, if this is the crime that ends up as Hillary’s undoing, it will likely be dealt with in such a way that the deeper scandal involved — that of the pay-for-play at the Clinton Foundation — never gets revealed, let alone the Clinton mafia’s real crimes. But at this point, any derailment of Clinton 2016 would have to be welcomed.

3-25-2015 12-57-26 PM

Sadly, though, it is quite possible that none of these scandals are brought out into the open. It is equally possible that the establishment has already selected their candidate for 2016, or, testing the winds of public sentiment, they decide that Hillary is too much of a liability and decide not to back her. In that case we can expect some meme to enter into the establishment media through the usual Mockingbird channels, perhaps that she’s too old and out of touch, or that her head injury is worse than she let on. And just like that, she’ll be discarded like yesterday’s newspaper and the Clintons will be put out to pasture.

The other possibility, of course, is that Hillary actually prevails and gets elected. But that is an outcome almost too ghastly to contemplate.

One thing is for certain. If we are to have any hope in bringing any of the Clintons’ true crimes to the public’s attention, we can’t wait for the media to do it for us. We’ll have to roll up our sleeves and do it ourselves.

Top US Commander Under Arrest For Refusing To Fire Nukes At Russia

By Truther,

Pakalert Press

A new report circulating in the Kremlin today prepared by the Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) for the Ministry of Defense (MoD) states that President Barack Obama’s nuclear war communication commander has been arrested and relieved of her command after failing to transmit launch codes authorizing an atomic weapons first-strike attack upon the Federation in coordination with a similar “surprise” attack planned by the United Kingdom.

According to the SVR, US Navy Captain Heather E. Cole was the commander of the US Navy’s Strategic Communications Wing 1 located at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma whose E-6B Mercury aircraft provide the communications links allowing President Obama and US Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter to directly contact the submarines, bombers and land-based missiles that comprise the United States strategic nuclear force.

On Monday, 16 March, this report states, Captain Cole received from the Pentagon a launch order authorizing a “limited” nuclear strike against the Federation, but which failed due to a critical Permissive Action Link (PAL) failure thus causing her to abort this planned attack.

As a PAL is a security device for nuclear weapons whose purpose is to prevent unauthorized arming or detonation of the nuclear weapons, SVR experts in this report explain, the critical failure in this instance was an added security measure ordered by the former US Secretary of Defense, Chuck Hagel, prior to his being forced out of office last month over his refusal to have any part in this attack against Russia.

This report further explains that Secretary Carter was not aware of Secretary Hagel’s PAL security changes thus allowing Captain Cole to abort this planned nuclear attack.

For her failure to communicate the launch authorization to US nuclear forces, this report continues, Captain Cole was arrested on Tuesday, 17 March, relieved of her command and then taken by armed guard to US Naval Air Station (NAS) Miramar in San Diego (California) where she remains incommunicado.

The SVR in their report on Captain Cole’s refusal to start World War III further states that her actions mirrors those of Soviet Naval Captain Vasili Arkhipov, who during the Cuban Missile Crisis, in 1962, also refused to obey orders to launch nuclear weapons against the United States.

Upon Captain Cole being arrested, a MoD appendix to this SVR report says, President Putin ordered the Federations strategic nuclear bomber forces to their “fail-safe” locations in the Arctic (the fastest air route to the US from Russia), an expansion of the Northern Fleet’s combat operations into the Norwegian Sea, and continued combat air operations against NATO forces on the northern border.

Important to note, and as we had stated in our 14 March report, Russia Warns “State Of War” Exists As UK Nukes Prepare First Strike, President Putin and the MoD had been made aware of the planned nuclear attack against the Federation weeks ago thus allowing the Federation to move its own nuclear forces to the NATO border.

Likewise, and as we had reported on 15 March, Obama Meets With Top Russian Spy, Warns He Can’t Stop War, neither President Putin or the MoD have any confidence that President Obama is even in control his military forces anymore, thus necessitating the Federations greatest defensive war moves since World War II, and as we reported on in our 17 March report, Moscow Bomb Shelters Begin To Fill As Russia Prepares For War.

And, perhaps, most appalling…as President Putin, after greeting over 100,000 cheering citizen-supporters in Red Square earlier today, meets with close aide to Chinese President Xi Jinping to update China on the Federations war preparations, there remains no evidence that the West, particularly the United States, are preparing their own people for the horrific catastrophe soon to come.

The fate of Captain Cole, however, is much more known as it will be exactly like Captain Arkhipov’s… a relegation to the dustbin of history as a failed officer, at best, or her early suicide/death to prevent her from telling what she knows.

The Last Word on Overpopulation

March 23rd, 2015 by

https://www.corbettreport.com/the-last-word-on-overpopulation/

James Corbett
The Corbett Report

Welcome. This is James Corbett of corbettreport.com with the last word on overpopulation.

As human beings, we are hard wired to be constantly on the lookout for potential dangers. This is to be expected. Thousands of years ago, our ancestors had to be ever-vigilant to the threat of natural predators, contagious disease and inclement weather, or suffer the consequences. Today we have largely overcome many of the natural dangers which plagued our forebears, but the same instincts compel us to guard against threats both real and imagined, and heed the call of those who raise the alarm of potential new threats.

This concept has been well understood for thousands of years by those who have sought to control populations.

Before the modern understanding of our solar system had been articulated, the ancient Egyptians believed that the sun itself was a god named Ra who was devoured every evening by an evil snake god named Apep. It was by no means assured that Ra would be able to escape Apep to return in the morning, and the priest class manipulated this basic fear by developing elaborate rites for warding off the snake god. These rites, of course, could only be properly administered by the priests themselves, thus assuring them a central role in ancient Egyptian society.

We may laugh at the gullibility of the ancient Egyptians, but for them the existence of Apep and the importance of the rituals were instilled from an early age and reinforced by the pronouncements of the priestly class. To question the reality of the sun god myth would have been akin to questioning the fabric of Egyptian society itself.

To think that we are not capable of being similarly manipulated in our modern “enlightened” era would be the grossest form of historical naïveté.

In the 20th century, fears over the red menace of the Soviet Union and its supposed military juggernaut were used to steer the course of American society. Jack Kennedy himself became president campaigning on the notion that the Eisenhower administration had allowed a dangerous missile gap to build up between the Soviets and the Americans. According to this scare story, fed to the Kennedy campaign by RAND Corporation analysts, the Soviet Union had 500 Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles ready to fire at America at a moment’s notice. In reality, the Soviets only had 4 such missiles at that time, but that did not stop the military-industrial propaganda machine from convincing Americans that they had to pump ever more of their resources into arms purchases from defense contractors in order to counter the Soviet threat.

Incredibly, in some cases the same threat has been touted for centuries, always coming with the same dire warnings that the end of the world is nigh unless the public is willing to give up money, sovereignty, or even their lives in order to avert it.

In the late 18th century an Anglican priest named Thomas Malthus demonstrated with “mathematical certainty” that the world was heading toward demographic disaster. After all, human population increases exponentially while food supply increases arithmetically. From this it logically follows that it is only a matter of time before the world population outstrips our ability to feed ourselves.

Of course, just as a parent might look at his infant son’s first year of growth and extrapolate that he will be 20 feet tall by the time he’s 30, over 200 years of the expected population crisis failing to arrive has demonstrated that there are fundamental flaws in Malthus’ reasoning. The earth is not a zero-sum game and human ingenuity has always and in every generation managed to bake a bigger pie even as they take a bigger and bigger slice of it. Now even the United Nations’ most alarmist predictions admit that global population will level off and begin declining in 2050, and Malthus is now understood to have been a third-rate scholar spreading Chicken Little sky-is-falling fantasies for the benefit of the British East India Company that employed him.

Amazingly, though, despite every one of the doomsday predictions of Malthus and his Malthusian acolytes proving to be false decade after decade for two centuries on end, Malthus’ ideas are still being taken seriously and still being hyped and promoted by the moneyed oligarchs who benefit from the idea that there are too many useless eaters using up the world’s resources.

3-23-2015 10-57-08 AM

Malthus himself, an Anglican minister, wrote that “We are bound in justice and honor formally to disdain the Right of the poor to support,” arguing for a law making it illegal for the Anglican church to give any food, clothing or support to any children. Not content with consigning thousands of children to death for the misfortune of being born poor, however, Malthus also advocated actively contributing to the deaths of more of the poor through social engineering:

“Instead of recommending cleanliness to the poor, we should encourage contrary habits. In our towns we should make the streets narrower, crowd more people into the houses, and court the return of the plague. In the country, we should build our villages near stagnant pools, and particularly encourage settlement in all marshy and unwholesome situations. But above all we should reprobate specific remedies for ravaging diseases; and restrain those benevolent, but much mistaken men, who have thought they are doing a service to mankind by protecting schemes for the total extirpation of particular disorders.“

The horrific nature of this idea is made all the more preposterous by the fact that Malthus was encouraging the spread of disease and plague in order to “save” humanity from the diseases and plagues that overpopulation fosters. But this self-contradiction is completely lost on those whose bloodlust drives them to support such drastic population reduction schemes to kill of the poor and downtrodden of society.

As repulsive as Malthus’ ideas are to our sensibilities, they have provided an ideological framework for those with a psychopathic urge to dominate others for the past two hundred years.

In his infamous 1968 book, The Population Bomb, Paul Ehrlich and his wife Anne wrote: “A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells; the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people…We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer. The operation will demand many apparently brutal and heartless decisions.” He felt the cancer of newborn babies was so potentially devastating to humanity that in 1969 he actually advocated adding sterilants to the food and water supply. Lest there were any doubt about his remarks, he further elaborated on them in Ecoscience, a 1977 book that he co-authored with Obama’s current science czar, John Holdren, where they once again advocated adding sterilants to the water supply.

In 1972, ex-World Bank advisor and UN functionary Maurice Strong advocated government licensing for women’s right to have children.

In 1988, Prince Philip uttered his deplorable comment “In the event I am reborn, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation.”

In the 1990s, Ted Turner told Audubon magazine that “A total world population of 250-300 million people, a 95 percent decline from present levels, would be ideal.”

Of course, the overpopulation myth itself crumbles under the slightest scrutiny. No one, not even the UN, is projecting limitless growth of the human population. Even the most alarmist projections show the world population leveling off within 40 years. What’s more, the birth rate in every major industrialized nation in the world is now below the replacement level of 2.1, meaning that they are in fact dying nations of aging populations that require an ever-increasing influx of immigrants just to maintain their population level. In addition to the well-known phenomenon of industrialization reducing the sizes of families, there are now indications that chemicals called endocrine disruptors which are mysteriously ending up in our foods, plastics and drinking water are limiting our biological ability to reproduce, with sperm rates among Western men declining a staggering 50% in the last 50 years with 85% of the remaining sperm being abnormal.

But still, even if we were to take the hysteria over population size at face value, the “solutions” suggested by the Malthusians—forced sterilization programs, de-industrialization, and even genocide—represent the biggest fraud of all: the idea that merely reducing the size of a population will somehow reduce the inequalities and iniquities within that society.

But therein lays the secret. The people who fret over the overpopulation non-problem cannot be reasoned with because their concern for humanity is only a pretense. The way they approach the problem itself displays their bias. Most people see an increase in the number of people on the planet not as a scourge, but as an opportunity to increase our understanding of the human species and its capabilities. In the twisted vision of the overpopulation fear-mongers, however, newborn babies are not a joy to behold, not a gift, not the living, breathing potential of the future of the human race, but a cancer that must be killed.

The Malthusians are not interested in increasing food production, lifting the poor out of poverty or developing technology to increase our ability to share in the abundant wealth of the world. Instead they wish for the forcible sterilization of the poor, the consignment of billions around the world to grinding poverty and the elimination of vast swathes of the population. They do not wish to reduce the pain and suffering in the world, but to increase it. In short, the overpopulation hysteria is a convenient lie for the Chicken-Littles who stand to benefit from the panic they themselves cause.

For the rest of us, it comes down to a simple question: After 200 years of the sky failing to fall, isn’t it time to stop listening to Chicken Little?

For The Corbett Report in western Japan, I am James Corbett.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Please consider for a moment how easy it will be for the psychopathic Banking Cartel with their control over our public education and media to bend the minds of the next generation to the point of them requesting public funded humane euthanization.  There seems to be no limits on how homo-sapiens can be manipulated into self destructive social structures, murder, and thievery.

One Last Look At The Real Economy Before It Implodes-Part 3

By Brandon Smith

In the previous installments of this series, we discussed the hidden and often unspoken crisis brewing within the employment market, as well as in personal debt. The primary consequence being a collapse in overall consumer demand, something which we are at this very moment witnessing in the macro-picture of the fiscal situation around the world. Lack of real production and lack of sustainable employment options result in a lack of savings, an over-dependency on debt and welfare, the destruction of grass-roots entrepreneurship, a conflated and disingenuous representation of gross domestic product, and ultimately an economic system devoid of structural integrity — a hollow shell of a system, vulnerable to even the slightest shocks.

This lack of structural integrity and stability is hidden from the general public quite deliberately by way of central bank money creation that enables government debt spending, which is counted toward GDP despite the fact that it is NOT true production (debt creation is a negation of true production and historically results in a degradation of the overall economy as well as monetary buying power, rather than progress). Government debt spending also disguises the real state of poverty within a system through welfare and entitlements. The U.S. poverty level is at record highs, hitting previous records set 50 years ago during Lyndon Johnson’s administration. The record-breaking rise in poverty has also occurred despite 50 years of the so called “war on poverty,” a shift toward American socialism that was a continuation of the policies launched by Franklin D. Roosevelt’s ‘New Deal’.

The shift toward a welfare state is the exact reason why, despite record poverty and a 23 percent true unemployment rate (as discussed here), we do not yet see the kind of soup lines and rampant indigence witnessed during the Great Depression. Today, EBT cards and other welfare programs hide modern soup lines in plain sight. It should be noted that the record 20 percent of U.S. households now on food stamps are still technically contributing to GDP. That’s because government statistics make no distinction between normal grocery consumption and consumption created artificially through debt-generated welfare.

This third installment of our economic series will be the most difficult.  We will examine the issue of government debt, including how true debt is disguised from the public and how this debt is a warning of a coming implosion in our overall structure.  National debt is perhaps one of the most manipulated fields of economics, and the layers surrounding what our country truly owes to foreign creditors and central banks are many.  I believe this confusing array of disinformation is designed to discourage average Americans from pursuing the facts.  Here are the facts all the same, for those who have the patience…

First, it is important to debunk the mainstream lies surrounding what constitutes national debt.

“Official” national debt as of 2015 is currently reported at more than $18 trillion. That means that under Barack Obama and with the aid of the private Federal Reserve, U.S. debt has nearly doubled since 2008 — quite an accomplishment in only seven years’ time. But this is not the whole picture.

Official GDP numbers published for mainstream consumption do NOT include annual liabilities generated by programs such as Social Security and Medicare. These liabilities are veiled through the efforts of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), which reports on what it calls “debts” rather than on the true fiscal gap. Through the efforts of economists like Laurence Kotlikoff of Boston University, Alan J. Auerbach and Jagadeesh Gokhale, understanding of the fiscal gap (the difference between our government’s projected financial obligations and the present value of all projected future tax and other receipts) is slowly growing within more mainstream circles.

The debt created through the fiscal gap increases, for example, because of the Social Security program – since government taxes the population for Social Security but uses that tax money to fund other programs or to pay off other outstanding debts. In other words, the government collects “taxes” with the promise of paying them back in the future through Social Security, but it spends that money instead of saving it for the use it was supposedly intended.

The costs of such unfunded liabilities within programs like Social Security and Medicare accumulate as the government continues to kick the can down the road instead of changing policy to cover costs. This accumulation is reflected in the Alternative Financial Scenario analysis, which the CBO used to publish every year but for some reason stopped publishing in 2013. Here is a presentation on the AFS by the St. Louis branch of the Federal Reserve. Take note that the crowd laughs at the prospect of the government continuing to “can kick” economic policy changes in order to avoid handling current debt obligations, yet that is exactly what has happened over the past several years.

Using the AFS report, Kotlikoff and other more honest economists estimate real U.S. national debt to stand at about $205 trillion.

When the exposure of these numbers began to take hold in the mainstream, media pundits and establishment propagandists set in motion a campaign to spin public perception, claiming that the vast majority of this debt was actually “projected debt” to be paid over the course of 70 years or more and, thus, not important in terms of today’s debt concerns. While some estimates of national debt include future projections of unfunded liabilities in certain sectors this far ahead, the spin masters’ fundamental argument is in fact a disingenuous redirection of the facts.

According to the calculations of economists like Chris Cox and Bill Archer, unfunded liabilities are adding about $8 trillion in total debt annually. That is $8 trillion dollars per year not accounted for in official national debt stats.  For the year ending Dec. 31, 2011, the annual accrued expense of Medicare and Social Security was $7 trillion of this amount.

Kotlikoff’s analysis shows that this annual hidden debt accumulation has resulted in a current total of $205 trillion. This amount is not the unfunded liabilities added up in all future years. This is the present value of the unfunded liabilities, discounted to today.

How is the U.S. currently covering such massive obligations on top of the already counted existing budget costs? It’s not.

Taxes collected yearly in the range of $3.7 trillion are nowhere near enough to cover the amount, and no amount of future taxes would make a dent either. This is why the Grace Commission, established during the Ronald Reagan presidency, found that not a single penny of your taxes collected by the Internal Revenue Service is going toward the funding of actual government programs. In fact, all new taxes are being used to pay off the ever increasing interest on current debts.

For those who argue that an increase in taxation is the cure, more than 102 million people are unemployed within the U.S. today. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Current Population Survey (CPS), 148 million are employed; about 20% of these are considered part-time workers (about 30 million people). Around 16 million full time workers are employed by state and local government (meaning they are a drain on the system whether they know it or not).  Only 43 percent of all U.S. households are considered “middle class,” the section of the public where most taxes are derived. In the best-case scenario, we have about 120 million people paying a majority of taxes toward U.S. debt obligations, while nearly as many are adding to those debt obligations through welfare programs or have the potential to add to those obligations in the near future if they do not find work due to the high unemployment rate that no one at the BLS wants to acknowledge.

Looking at reality, one finds a swiftly shrinking middle class paying for an ever larger welfare class.  Do the math, and an honest person will admit that no matter how much taxes increase, they will still never make up for the lack of adequate taxpayers.

Another dishonest argument given to dismiss concerns of national debt is the lie that Domestic Net Worth in the U.S. far outweighs our debts owed, and this somehow negates the issue. Domestic Net Worth is calculated using Gross Domestic Assets, public and private. It’s interesting, however, that Domestic Net Worth counts ‘Debt Capital’ as an asset, just as GDP counts debt creation as production.  Debt Capital is the “capital” businesses and governments raise by taking out loans. This capital (debt) is then counted as an asset toward Domestic Net Worth.

Yes, that’s right, private and national debts are “assets.” And mainstream economists argue that these debts (errr… assets) offset our existing debts. This is the unicorn, Neverland, Care Bear magic of establishment economics, folks. It’s truly a magnificent thing to behold.

Ironically, debt capital, like the official national debt, does not include unfunded liabilities. If it did, mainstream talking heads could claim an even vaster supply of “assets” (debts) that offset our liabilities.

This situation is clearly unsustainable. The only people who seem to argue that it is sustainable are disinformation agents with something to gain (government favors and pay) and government cronies with something to lose (public trust and their positions of petty authority).

With overall Treasury investments static for some foreign central banks and dwindling in others, the only other options are to print indefinitely and at ever greater levels, or to default. For decades, the Federal Reserve has been printing in order to keep the game afloat, and the American public has little to no idea how much fiat and debt the private institution has conjured in the process. Certainly, the amount of debt we see just in annual unfunded liabilities helps to explain why the dollar has lost 97 percent of its purchasing power since the Fed was established. Covering that much debt in the short term requires a constant flow of fiat, digital and paper.  Not only does REAL debt threaten our credit standing as a nation, it also threatens the value and full faith in the dollar.

The small glimpse into Fed operations we received during the limited TARP audit was enough to warrant serious concern, as a full audit would likely result in the exposure of total debt fraud, the immediate abandonment of U.S. Treasury investment, and the destruction of the dollar. Of course, all of that will eventually happen anyway…

I will discuss why this will take place sooner rather than later through the issues of Treasury bonds and the dollar in the fourth installment of this series. In the fifth installment, I will examine the many reasons why a deliberate program of destructive debt bubbles and currency devaluations actually benefits certain international financiers and elites with aspirations of complete globalization. And in the sixth and final installment, I will delve into practical solutions – and practical solutions only. In the meantime, I would like everyone to consider this:

No society or culture has ever successfully survived by disengaging itself from its own financial responsibilities and dumping them on future generations without falling from historical grace. Not one. Does anyone with any sense really believe that the U.S. is somehow immune to this reality?

AS THEY SAY IN MISSOURI, WE’RE A-FIXIN TO ESPLAIN IT TO YOU

We deal in realities, not wish lists. We don’t pull any punches and never will. We write what many others are afraid to write. We say what others don’t have the courage to say, in a climate of fear that has made “politically correct” a retreat for cowards. In the end, it is up to the reader to determine for him or herself whether we have the best interests of a free America and the individual rights of all Americans, at heart. Each reader of what we write has the option to accept or reject our arguments, premises, or opinions. If the reader is offended by what we write, it is their issue to resolve, not ours. It is their right to make that judgment but it is not up to us to care one way or another. Because, in a free society, it is the fearless expression of ideas, whether benign or controversial, that stirs the pot of free thought and gives it life, as well as advancing the principles of liberty.

So let’s face it ladies and gentlemen. Freedom is a facade, an illusion, a fantasy, a mirage. You have the perception and the presumption of being free in America but the perception is a lie. Freedom means having the freedom to choose and making decisions for your self and those in your charge. Freedom also means taking responsibility for your actions and respecting the rights of others.

But if you are so free, then why do you need a Social Security number at birth? The reason is because government tracks you from birth with that number. Why does the government need to track you from birth in a free society? Because the government needs the money you will earn to pay its debt to its borrowers, including the Federal Reserve. You and your earnings during your lifetime are nothing but collateral for what government borrows. How do you like the idea that your worth as a natural born sovereign citizen is to collateralize the debt of your government? That makes you just chattel, like a domestic animal grown for food, not a human with unalienable rights, bestowed upon you by nature, not by man or government.

Why do you need a license to get married? Why do you need a driver’s license? Why do you need a fishing and hunting license? Why do you need a permit to build a home? Why are you being forced to buy health insurance? Each question can be answered in one sentence, “to charge you for the privilege granted to you by government to do something you have the right to do anyway and to track you from birth to death and control your behavior while alive and tax you even after death.”How people live with and accept this knowledge is anyone’s guess. The problem is, the people by in large, don’t even know they are being cajoled, manipulated and controlled and most of them don’t care.

The fact is that in America, you have freedom of choice up until you bump into the millions of government laws, regulations, restriction and ordinances. You don’t have to go very far with free choice before you hit the wall of government regulations. Just try starting a business or figure out your income taxes. Government allows you to operate “freely” within a bubble they have prescribed for you within the confines of a zillion laws. But there is life outside government’s imposed bubble that they don’t want you to see.

Why are your children being indoctrinated and brainwashed in school? Their education is not to foster freedom and make them ready for an adult life with a broad education in a free land. It is to (teach) promote a specific agenda. The agenda is socialism, social justice, multi-culturalism, environmentalism, collectivism and diversity and to eliminate the idea of individualism and individual rights, not to mention property rights. Your children are being “schooled” in the art of being compliant little robots to a new world order collective. If you don’t think so, start reading their textbooks.

If you think No Child Left Behind and Common Core State Standards are for improving the learning experience in K-12, you are suffering from a grand illusion, planted there by government. Check out this mother from Arkansas that takes real issues with Common Core. Her testimony is compelling.

Everything you believe about government is an illusion and a lie. Government is not benevolent and it cheats, lies and steals with abandon. It does not exist to protect your individual rights. Government is about control of the masses by force of law and force of violence. The longer government power goes unchallenged, the more powerful it gets and boy is the American government, at all levels, powerful.

If you are so free, why do you put up with paying taxes to a government that wastes 20% of what you pay them and a government tax collection agency that is wholly corrupt and acts more like the Nazi Gestapo? Why do you allow government to run up $18 Trillion in debt and run a $1 Trillion annual deficit well into the future? Why do you just roll your eyes with a wide-open border and a flawed situation that allows illegal aliens to get money from the government (your money) on the child tax credit and the earned income tax credit by the billions of dollars when they pay little or no taxes?

Did you know that Chinese women will pay $80,000 to come to America to have their “anchor babies” so that all their Chinese relatives can come to America on visas and then overstay their visas and live here in the shadows taking advantage of your tax dollars? That’s right! They are living off of you.

Why is it OK with you that your president grants amnesty to 5,000,000 illegal aliens by changing the law with an executive order? He has no authority to change the law under our Constitution. He can only enforce the law. Only Congress can write new law or change old law. Do you think Congress represents you under the Constitution? Then why hasn’t Congress or the U. S. Supreme Court stopped the President?

Why do you sit back and watch as government bureaucracies pass millions of laws to control your behavior when under the Constitution only the Congress has the power to make law?

Why do you allow your tax money to be paid to dictators, despots and our enemies under the guise of foreign aid?

Why do you let radical environmental laws, lobbied by rich international environmental groups and passed by your government, TAKE your property rights from you and not put up a fight? If you don’t have property rights, you have no rights.

And finally, why did you let the government take over your health care? They nationalized one sixth of the American economy without your permission and they did it for political and monetary reasons, not because it benefited you.

Under our constitution, government has an obligation and a duty to protect your individual rights but they haven’t been doing that since the ink was dry on the Constitution. They swear on oath that they will do so and then they violate that oath every time they open their mouth or pass a law.

But laws are only for the people. Politicians, judges and bureaucrats are above the law and show a reckless disregard for the law and a reckless disregard for your money.

What are the people going to do about it? Mostly nothing. But only the people can reverse what is wrong with America and the people are not in the mood! As long as “other people’s money” holds out and they can be entertained with mindless violence and debauchery, they are just fine with the way things are going. Hey! Why try to stop a good thing? Right?

It is all about power ladies and gentlemen, but most people don’t get it. These socialist policies we have described above, promoted by government, buy votes and it is the votes that perpetuate their power, especially in a Democracy, which America has become. A Democracy is nothing more than mob rule as manipulated by government where the mob is essentially a clueless herd and basically ignorant! Democrats have become masters at manipulating mob rule for votes and dividing us so that we fight with each other.

Socialism is a massive Ponzi scheme that plays on the innate weakness of man. But it is doomed to fail, as it did for the Romans and every other country that has tried it. Eventually, there is no money to distribute and those providing the money revolt and those not getting the money riot. Government then steps in and declares martial law, a direct path to a dictatorship.

Once the socialism cycle begins, there is no turning it off until it fails on its own accord, or the people arrest the system before it fails. If socialism isn’t arrested by the people history repeats itself ….. AGAIN! It would appear that repeating history is in our immediate future.

But this we can guarantee. The longer the people wait to stop government and rein in its rising power, the greater the chance that the only alternative left to the people will come out of the muzzle of a gun, the outcome of which is totally unpredictable.

Based on the foregoing we have decided to drop our idea of the“Exclosers” organization to expose government corruption. After over a month of promoting the idea, the response was not just underwhelming it was almost non-existent. By now we expected at least a hundred people or more would join the effort. Only FOUR did!

The book we wrote on “How To Free America in 5 Years”will go to the shredder and the website has been taken down. After eight years of trying, this is our last overture to get people involved in the effort to preserve their freedom.

People love to talk or write about freedom, but they don’t have the will or the courage to do anything about it. Sure there are a few, but way too few. Maybe sometime in the future the people will rise up en masse but by then the government will really be all-powerful. We wish those that try, God speed. However, victory will not be assured. The forces that are pushing all people and all nations toward a one-world-order are more powerful than the will of the people to challenge that power.

A free nation like America will probably never rise again. The planet will have been conquered by an elite few who control the money, the land, the food, the water, the energy and health care. The people will be subjugated and become nothing more than subjects without rights. They will have done it without a shot being fired. This was the dream of all megalomaniacs of the past, like Genghis Khan, Attila the Hun, Alexander the Great, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and now Al Queda, the Muslim Brother Hood, ISIS Putin and who knows, maybe even Obama. That dream is on the verge of coming true. The American people could still stop it, but right now most of them are apathetic, disengaged and too comfortable to lift a finger. It’s just easier to ignore reality and people are pre-programmed to take the easy path.

And that is what we were “A-Fixin to Esplain To You.”

The Wolf Is Guarding the Hen House The Governments War on Cyberterrorism

March 17, 2015

The game is rigged, the network is bugged, the government talks double-speak, the courts are complicit and there’s nothing you can do about it.”—David Kravets, reporting for Wired

Nothing you write, say, text, tweet or share via phone or computer is private anymore. As constitutional law professor Garrett Epps points out, “Big Brother is watching…. Big Brother may be watching you right now, and you may never know. Since 9/11, our national life has changed forever. Surveillance is the new normal.”

This is the reality of the internet-dependent, plugged-in life of most Americans today.

A process which started shortly after 9/11 with programs such as Total Information Awareness (the predecessor to the government’s present surveillance programs) has grown into a full-fledged campaign of warrantless surveillance, electronic tracking and data mining, thanks to federal agents who have been given carte blanche access to the vast majority of electronic communications in America. Their methods completely undermine constitution safeguards, and yet no federal agency, president, court or legislature has stepped up to halt this assault on our rights.

For the most part, surveillance, data mining, etc., is a technological, jargon-laden swamp through which the average American would prefer not to wander. Consequently, most Americans remain relatively oblivious to the government’s ever-expanding surveillance powers, appear unconcerned about the fact that the government is spying on them, and seem untroubled that there is no way of opting out of this system. This state of delirium lasts only until those same individuals find themselves arrested or detained for something they did, said or bought that runs afoul of the government’s lowering threshold for what constitutes criminal activity.

All the while, Congress, the courts, and the president (starting with George W. Bush and expanding exponentially under Barack Obama) continue to erect an electronic concentration camp the likes of which have never been seen before.

A good case in point is the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), formerly known as CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act). Sold to the public as necessary for protecting us against cyber attacks or internet threats such as hacking, this Orwellian exercise in tyranny-masquerading-as-security actually makes it easier for the government to spy on Americans, while officially turning Big Business into a government snitch.

Be warned: this cybersecurity bill is little more than a wolf in sheep’s clothing or, as longtime critic Senator Ron Wyden labeled it, “a surveillance bill by another name.”

Lacking any significant privacy protections, CISA, which sacrifices privacy without improving security, will do for surveillance what the Patriot Act did for the government’s police powers: it will expand, authorize and normalize the government’s intrusions into the most intimate aspects of our lives to such an extent that there will be no turning back. In other words, it will ensure that the Fourth Amendment, which protects us against unfounded, warrantless government surveillance, does not apply to the Internet or digital/electronic communications of any kind.

In a nutshell, CISA would make it legal for the government to spy on the citizenry without their knowledge and without a warrant under the guise of fighting cyberterrorism. It would also protect private companies from being sued for sharing your information with the government, namely the National Security Agency (NSA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), in order to prevent “terrorism” or an “imminent threat of death or serious bodily harm.”

Law enforcement agencies would also be given broad authority to sift through one’s data for any possible crimes. What this means is that you don’t even have to be suspected of a crime to be under surveillance. The bar is set so low as to allow government officials to embark on a fishing expedition into your personal affairs—emails, phone calls, text messages, purchases, banking transactions, etc.—based only on their need to find and fight “crime.”

Take this anything-goes attitude towards government surveillance, combine it with Big Business’ complicity over the government’s blatantly illegal acts, the ongoing trend towards over-criminalization, in which minor acts are treated as major crimes, and the rise of private prisons, which have created a profit motive for jailing Americans, and you have all the makings of a fascist police state.

So who can we count on to protect us from the threat of government surveillance?

It won’t be the courts. Not in an age of secret courts, secret court rulings, and an overall deference by the courts to anything the government claims is necessary to its fight against terrorism. Most recently, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear a case challenging the government’s massive electronic wiretapping program. As Court reporter Lyle Denniston  notes:

Daoud v. United States was the first case, in the nearly four-decade history of electronic spying by the U.S. government to gather foreign intelligence, in which a federal judge had ordered the government to turn over secret papers about how it had obtained evidence through wiretaps of telephones and Internet links.  That order, however, was overturned by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, whose ruling was the one the Justices on Monday declined to review…. One of the unusual features of the government’s global electronic spying program is that the individuals whose conversations or e-mails have been monitored almost never hear about it, because the program is so shrouded in secrecy — except when the news media manages to find out some details.  But, if the government plans to use evidence it gathered under that program against a defendant in a criminal trial, it must notify the defendant that he or she has been monitored.

It won’t be Congress, either (CISA is their handiwork, remember), which has failed to do anything to protect the citizenry from an overbearing police state, all the while enabling the government to continue its power grabs. It was Congress that started us down this whole Big Brother road with its passage and subsequent renewals of the USA Patriot Act, which drove a stake through the heart of the Bill of Rights. The Patriot Act rendered First Amendment activists potential terrorists; justified broader domestic surveillance; authorized black bag “sneak-and-peak” searches of homes and offices by government agents; granted the FBI the right to come to your place of employment, demand your personal records and question your supervisors and fellow employees, all without notifying you; allowed the government access to your medical records, school records and practically every personal record about you; allowed the government to secretly demand to see records of books or magazines you’ve checked out in any public library and Internet sites you’ve visited.

The Patriot Act also gave the government the green light to monitor religious and political institutions with no suspicion of criminal wrongdoing; prosecute librarians or keepers of any other records if they told anyone that the government had subpoenaed information related to a terror investigation; monitor conversations between attorneys and clients; search and seize Americans’ papers and effects without showing probable cause; and jail Americans indefinitely without a trial, among other things.

And it certainly won’t be the president. Indeed, President Obama recently issued an executive order calling on private companies (phone companies, banks, Internet providers, you name it) to share their customer data (your personal data) with each other and, most importantly, the government. Here’s the problem, however: while Obama calls for vague protections for privacy and civil liberties without providing any specific recommendations, he appoints the DHS to oversee the information sharing and develop guidelines with the attorney general for how the government will collect and share the data.

Talk about putting the wolf in charge of the hen house.

Mind you, this is the same agency, rightly dubbed a “wasteful, growing, fear-mongering beast,” that is responsible for militarizing the police, weaponizing SWAT teams, spying on activists, stockpiling ammunition, distributing license plate readers to state police, carrying out military drills in American cities, establishing widespread surveillance networks through the use of fusion centers, funding city-wide surveillance systems, accelerating the domestic use of drones, and generally establishing itself as the nation’s standing army, i.e., a national police force.

This brings me back to the knotty problem of how to protect Americans from cyber attacks without further eroding our privacy rights.

Dependent as we are on computer technology for almost all aspects of our lives, it’s feasible that a cyberattack on American computer networks really could cripple both the nation’s infrastructure and its economy. So do we allow the government liberal powers to control and spy on all electronic communications flowing through the United States? Can we trust the government not to abuse its privileges and respect our privacy rights? Does it even matter, given that we have no real say in the matter?

As I point out in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, essentially, there are three camps of thought on the question of how much power the government should have, and which camp you fall into says a lot about your view of government—or, at least, your view of whichever administration happens to be in power at the time, for the time being, the one calling the shots being the Obama administration.

In the first camp are those who trust the government to do the right thing—or, at least, they trust the Obama administration to look out for their best interests. To this group, CISA is simply a desperately needed blueprint for safeguarding us against a possible cyberattack, with a partnership between the government and Big Business serving as the most logical means of thwarting such an attack. Any suggestion that the government and its corporate cohorts might abuse this power is dismissed as conspiratorial hysterics. The problem, as technology reporter Adam Clark Estes points out, is that CISA is a “privacy nightmare” that “stomps all over civil liberties” without making “the country any safer against cyberattacks.”

In the second camp are those who not only don’t trust the government but think the government is out to get them. Sadly, they’ve got good reason to distrust the government, especially when it comes to abusing its powers and violating our rights. For example, consider that government surveillance of innocent Americans has exploded over the past decade. In fact, Wall Street Journal reporter Julia Angwin has concluded that, as a result of its spying and data collection, the U.S. government has more data on American citizens than the Stasi secret police had on East Germans. To those in this second group, CISA is nothing less than the writing on the wall that surveillance is here to stay, meaning that the government will continue to monitor, regulate and control all means of communications.

Then there’s the third camp, which neither sees government as an angel or a devil, but merely as an entity that needs to be controlled, or as Thomas Jefferson phrased it, bound “down from mischief with the chains of the Constitution.” A distrust of all who hold governmental power was rife among those who drafted the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. James Madison, the nation’s fourth president and the author of the Bill of Rights, was particularly vocal in warning against government. He once observed, “All men having power ought to be distrusted to a certain degree.”

To those in the third camp, the only way to ensure balance in government is by holding government officials accountable to abiding by the rule of law. Unfortunately, with all branches of the government, including the courts, stridently working to maintain its acquired powers, and the private sector marching in lockstep, there seems to be little to protect the American people from the fast-growing electronic surveillance state.

In the meantime, surveillance has become the new normal, and the effects of this endless surveillance are taking a toll, resulting in a more anxious and submissive citizenry. As Fourth Amendment activist Alex Marthews points out,

Mass surveillance is becoming a punchline. Making it humorous makes mass surveillance seem easy and friendly and a normal part of life…we make uneasy jokes about how we should watch what we say, about the government looking over our shoulders, about cameras and informers and eyes in the sky. Even though we may not in practice think that these agencies pay us any mind, mass surveillance still creates a chilling effect: We limit what we search for online and inhibit expression of controversial viewpoints. This more submissive mentality isn’t a side effect. As far as anyone is able to measure, it’s the main effect of mass surveillance. The effect of such programs is not primarily to thwart attacks by foreign terrorists on U.S. soil; it’s to discourage challenges to the security services’ authority over our lives here at home.

The God of the Bible is anathema to secular leftists.  As evidence of that, we see a troubling rise in anti-Christian and anti-Semitic bigotry from the political left, both at home and abroad.  To push the faithful farther out of the mainstream, it is now chic to target Christians and Jews for verbal and physical abuse, and worse in many places, because those who deny the biblical God are in power or rising to take it.  Corrupt human power and Divinity are mutually exclusive. 

As a manifestation of this rising aggression toward Western religious values, atheism and secularism have become cool and trendy among those making the absurd case for the shabbiness of human nature as the planet’s preeminent force.  Though the Founders foresaw the need to constrain such force via the Constitution, secularists have decided that this is their time to rise and forcibly convert the rest of us, or punish or re-educate us.  Their influences and voices are becoming louder and angrier, and their attacks more confident.  They are empowered by the fact that the dominance of the left in politics, the media, and entertainment means that they are largely free to do or say any offensive or vile thing they wish, since the watchdogs endorse their crimes and make it unpopular and painful for anyone who might oppose them.

The denial of the biblical God in America has been a decades-long work in progress.  After all, the elimination of a Divine Being from the equation leaves deeply flawed humans as the sole arbiters of what constitutes acceptable human behavior.  When one does not have to answer for his cruelties, hatred, bigotry, violence, etc., life becomes a lot more pleasant for the aggressor.  Similarly, if there is no God, the treatment of His believers as mindless simpletons is more easily justified, since who else but a backwards hick would believe that something other than man, or random chance, created all that is around us, in measures of complexity and symmetry that humans still have not yet deciphered?  Sure, we all get that species evolve over time to adapt, but no one has yet explained plausibly why, if we magically grew from single-celled entities in the muck, new humans don’t continue to magically “evolve” under the same conditions.  We still have muck and have had eons of time.  Where are the new evolving humans?

The Christian concept of a human soul is offensive to those who recoil at the thought that their existence might derive in any way from a Divine Being to whom they will one day answer.  If they admitted to that, then they might also have to concede that the God from whom their soul derived has rules, and they hate rules they didn’t write, rewrite, or make up on the spot, depending on their need to get away with something.

With God replaced by humans as nature’s biggest and best, other behaviors become easier to rationalize.  If there are no rules imposed by God for human behavior, then morality is a manufactured concept and is purely optional.  Truth and honor, as manifestations of morality, are artificial and therefore are silly.  What matters are the ends.  But with God gone, whose ends are dominant?  Why, the left’s ends, of course.  But don’t worry.  If there were a God, they tell us, he would side with them, because they have deigned to label their oppression “moral.”

This belies another odd fallacy of secularism as the left practices it.  If there is no God, from where does the virtue arise that is so often pushed as the leftist’s justification for tyranny?  From leftists, of course.  With God out of the way, leftists will decide for us what is best, what crumbs they will allow us to have, what we will be allowed to do.  It’s not that leftists don’t like moral codes being imposed upon mankind.  It’s that leftists have figured out that it must be a flexible moral code that protects them as they coldly force their preferences on others, against their inferiors’ will.

This brings us to a fact the left simply cannot abide.  Every human is endowed with free will.  The concept that each life is sacred is based in part upon the fact that each is blessed with the ability to rationally weigh moral choices and, based on concepts like future consequences and a greater good, choose right from wrong.  No other species can foresee, for instance, the disastrous effects of a bad moral decision extending in perpetuity.  Many Christians recognize that the vehicle for this trait is the human soul, an inexplicable gift connecting us to the Divine, by which we exercise free will either to move closer to Him or move farther away.

Because each of us is endowed with this gift, no one is better or more entitled than another.  As such, we are likewise endowed by God with the inherent gift of autonomy, with unalienable rights to be free from the false human gods who have denied the actual God in order to replace Him with their own presumed superiority.  Deny God, and those truths magically vanish from the discourse, to be replaced with the argument that rights derive from man, and are gifted to man by other men.  If there is no God, no soul, no Divine spark, there is no autonomy.  Human power is all there is, and the rules are whatever other humans decide they will be for those they intend to rule.  At this point, inherent rights can and will be rescinded by man.

And here we find ourselves now.  God is the left’s most hated enemy, though they will cynically invoke God to mislead the gullible.  They protest that their secularism, and their goals of dominance and control of other humans, are altruistic and are thus Godly.  They ignore that their rationalization of altruism is itself an act of tyranny, in which they have made themselves and their values superior to those whom they seek to control or victimize.  As they pretend to be motivated by charity and kindness toward society, they advance only those who swear obedience to the power they wield.  Oaths are mere formalities, since there is no God who will hold them to account for their infidelity.  Honor is foolishness, since only the accomplishment of dominance over those who disagree matters.  There is no greater good, no higher call, than power over others.

Good has always warred with evil.  So it is now.  God and Satan are forever vying for human souls.  Those who swear allegiance to human vice are increasingly feeling free to attack those who don’t.  No matter.  To surrender to evil is not only to lose our innate freedom, but to dishonor the Divine spark that was gifted to each of us.  The farther we get from God, His rules, His virtues, His essence, the worse it becomes.

Rather than abandon God because the cool kids are all doing it, while threatening us with rescission of rights, curtailment of religious freedom, “hate” laws, bigotry, and prejudice, we must ask His help.  God has blessed America.  When we have had enough of man and turn back to God, we may be worthy of true success, rather than the failure that has come to every other nation that has placed the corrupt power of man over the divinity of God.

The God of the Bible is anathema to secular leftists.  As evidence of that, we see a troubling rise in anti-Christian and anti-Semitic bigotry from the political left, both at home and abroad.  To push the faithful farther out of the mainstream, it is now chic to target Christians and Jews for verbal and physical abuse, and worse in many places, because those who deny the biblical God are in power or rising to take it.  Corrupt human power and Divinity are mutually exclusive.

This belies another odd fallacy of secularism as the left practices it.  If there is no God, from where does the virtue arise that is so often pushed as the leftist’s justification for tyranny?  From leftists, of course.  With God out of the way, leftists will decide for us what is best, what crumbs they will allow us to have, what we will be allowed to do.  It’s not that leftists don’t like moral codes being imposed upon mankind.  It’s that leftists have figured out that it must be a flexible moral code that protects them as they coldly force their preferences on others, against their inferiors’ will.

This brings us to a fact the left simply cannot abide.  Every human is endowed with free will.  The concept that each life is sacred is based in part upon the fact that each is blessed with the ability to rationally weigh moral choices and, based on concepts like future consequences and a greater good, choose right from wrong.  No other species can foresee, for instance, the disastrous effects of a bad moral decision extending in perpetuity.  Many Christians recognize that the vehicle for this trait is the human soul, an inexplicable gift connecting us to the Divine, by which we exercise free will either to move closer to Him or move farther away.

Because each of us is endowed with this gift, no one is better or more entitled than another.  As such, we are likewise endowed by God with the inherent gift of autonomy, with unalienable rights to be free from the false human gods who have denied the actual God in order to replace Him with their own presumed superiority.  Deny God, and those truths magically vanish from the discourse, to be replaced with the argument that rights derive from man, and are gifted to man by other men.  If there is no God, no soul, no Divine spark, there is no autonomy.  Human power is all there is, and the rules are whatever other humans decide they will be for those they intend to rule.  At this point, inherent rights can and will be rescinded by man.

And here we find ourselves now.  God is the left’s most hated enemy, though they will cynically invoke God to mislead the gullible.  They protest that their secularism, and their goals of dominance and control of other humans, are altruistic and are thus Godly.  They ignore that their rationalization of altruism is itself an act of tyranny, in which they have made themselves and their values superior to those whom they seek to control or victimize.  As they pretend to be motivated by charity and kindness toward society, they advance only those who swear obedience to the power they wield.  Oaths are mere formalities, since there is no God who will hold them to account for their infidelity.  Honor is foolishness, since only the accomplishment of dominance over those who disagree matters.  There is no greater good, no higher call, than power over others.

Good has always warred with evil.  So it is now.  God and Satan are forever vying for human souls.  Those who swear allegiance to human vice are increasingly feeling free to attack those who don’t.  No matter.  To surrender to evil is not only to lose our innate freedom, but to dishonor the Divine spark that was gifted to each of us.  The farther we get from God, His rules, His virtues, His essence, the worse it becomes.

Rather than abandon God because the cool kids are all doing it, while threatening us with rescission of rights, curtailment of religious freedom, “hate” laws, bigotry, and prejudice, we must ask His help.  God has blessed America.  When we have had enough of man and turn back to God, we may be worthy of true success, rather than the failure that has come to every other nation that has placed the corrupt power of man over the divinity of God.

The Russians Are Ready to Initiate Red Dawn Against America

March 14th, 2015 by

http://beforeitsnews.com/war-and-conflict/2015/03/the-russians-are-

ready-to-initiate-red-dawn-against-america-2456248.html

3-14-2015 11-06-42 AM

Dr. Walker Todd, former 20 year consultant to the Federal Reserve.

On Thursday night, airing on Randy Yarbrough’s radio show on 1360AM out of Johnstown, Colorado, Dr. Walker Todd called in into the show and offered a stunning prediction. Dr. Todd stated that the U.S. economy has about “60-90 days of life in it as the dollar is on the verge of collapse”. 

The dire prediction from only man would not ordinarily carry much weight, however, Dr. Todd was a an economic consultant with 20 years of experience at theFederal Reserve Bank of New York and the Federal Reseve Bank of Cleveland. He is also a member of the Cato Institute‘s new Center for Monetary Financial Alternatives as one of its Adjunct Scholars.  Given his background, his expressed opinions should be given very serious consideration.

If Dr. Todd’s prediction is accurate, this fits in with what other sources are saying is coming in the very near future. It has always been my position that a false flag even would be used as a pretext to invoke martial law. Martial law would then be used as the excuse to begin gun confiscation. Gun confiscation will be used disarm American citizens prior to subjugating the country by using foreign mercenaries in what could be labeled as a “Red Dawn” scenario.

 Amerika the Miniseries

 Many have been quick to point out that the movie miniseries, Amerika, portrays the Soviet Union conducting a bloodless takeover of our country. This was a takeover made easy by the apathy of Americans to defend freedom as clearly stated by the Soviet leader in the movie: It (the coup) worked because you lost your country before we ever got here”.  The more things change the more they say the same. 

It is highly recommended that all Americans watch this movie about the country we would could soon be “fundamentally transformed” into, Amerika. It is chilling to watch the parallels of this 1987 miniseries and what is taking place now with ever increasing rapidity.

 Through a series of Executive Orders, President Obama has rendered Congress to be an impotent body. Here in the move, Amerika, the President of Amerika, enacts the final solution against Congressional interference against the communist takeover of our country.

3-14-2015 11-07-49 AM

More efficient than an Executive Order. 

EvenSenator Lindsay Graham is now advocating for a military dictatorship on the eve of some very ominous events which lie in our immediate future.

 Red Dawn

3-14-2015 11-09-05 AM

Let’s dust off some old evidence from last year when a rash of UN vehicles were being spotted as they were being transported to places unknown. In retrospect, it is clear that these vehicles are being stored for future use.

3-14-2015 11-11-02 AM

Sightings of these vehicles have been widely reported beginning last Spring. And this has led some to suspect that an occupation force is being mobilized.

Given what is to be revealed in the rest of the article, these UN vehicles were being transported to staging areas in preparation for a later roll out, such as the implementation of a real Red Dawn scenario.

What Lies Ahead?

As I have written multiple times, America will be taken down according to the following scenario: (1) A false flag, more than likely a scenario resulting in economic collapse and the destruction of the dollar. This is in line with what Dr. Todd stated on the radio on March 12, 2015; (2) The implementation of martial law rule, perhaps involving the use of foreign troops; and (3) All out conflict.

There are clear economic, political and military reasons why the Russians would want to occupy Alaska. My interest in this topic surfaced quite serendipitously as a couple of listeners to my radio program sent me information on the Agenda 21 invasion of small Alaska communities, and oh, by the way, they also reported that they were seeing Russian troops in their respective communities. The adjacent maps reveals the towns where Russian troops, or there is a large contingency of Russian civilians in Alaska.

3-14-2015 11-12-21 AM

The sighting of Russian troops in small Alaskan towns such Ketchikan, Alaska, got my undivided attention. Ketchikan is the southeastern most city in Alaska. With an estimated population of 8,050. Ketchikan is the fifth-most populous city in the state. Another area where there are civilian sightings of Russian troops is in Sitka, Alaska. The City of Sitka, formerly New Archangel under Russian rule, is located on Baranof Island and the southern half of Chichagof Island in the Alexander Archipelago of the Pacific Ocean. Additionally, one military veteran reports seeing Russian submarines, on a frequent basis, just off the coast. Further, there are civilian reports of Russian vehicles and troops moving through Alaska north of Anchorage. Because of the multiplicity of the reports, these are indeed verifiable, reported accounts of Russian troops on American soil.

3-14-2015 11-13-46 AM

Russian and American troops at Fort Carson, May 2012

The presence of Russian troops on American soil is very troublesome. America does not need to rely on the anecdotal accounts of Alaskan civilians to be concerned about the presence of Russian troops on American soil. Russian commandos are also “training” at Fort Carson, in Colorado Springs.

There are additional reports of Russians in and around the Alaskan town of Wasilla.

3-14-2015 11-14-46 AM

 I have learned, from multiple sources that the Russians have moved at least one, and probably two divisions of troops into the Eastern Arctic just outside of Alaska. This dovetails with another Russian military/political actions in recent times as we know that the Russians have established a very large presence in the Arctic, just above Alaska.

3-14-2015 11-15-41 AM

I have also learned that Russians, in large numbers have crossed over into Alaska. Many are in civilian clothes and many are being housed in several closed Alaskan military bases and abandoned motels. I am told that Russian troops are being maintained in the following two closed Alaskan bases.

3-14-2015 11-16-52 AM

Further, it is not a secret that some of these forces have worked with DHS on abduction exercises in which hypothetical members of the Independent Media and uncooperative and influential politicians (i.e. just like the movie Amerika) are snatched by troops offloaded from low-flying helicopters in the middle of the night. These drills have been coordinated in multiple locations which leads one to believe that when this scenario is acted upon, these abductions will take place on the same night.

More Supporting Documentation

I have repeatedly stressed the importance of seven Islands that Obama gave away to Russia. Please note their location. Two of the Islands are ideal for launching an invasion of Alaska. The other five Islands are serving to block access to the American navy in and around the Arctic interests of Russia.

3-14-2015 11-18-01 AM

Multiple reports from Alaskan fisherman have observed that Russian troops are occupying US/Alaska’s Wrangell Island in the Arctic which was one of the seven Islands given to Russia by Obama.

Interestingly, Google posted the following pictures and labeled them as “Russian military troops sighted in Alaska”

3-14-2015 11-19-16 AM

3-14-2015 11-20-07 AM

Maybe someone should be asking Google where they got these photos of what Google labels “Russian troops in Alaska”. If one does not believe that Obama is capable of facilitating this kind of treason, perhaps Obama would care to explain what happened when  In March of 2012, with a microphone left on. Obama made an unguarded comment to Russian leaderDmitry Medvedev to be “more lenient on nuclear issues” because he could be more flexible “after the November election (2012)”. Does more flexible mean killing the Keystone Pipeline prior to giving away seven rich Alaskan Islands to the Russians? Obama did indeed do that.  Does more flexible mean letting the Russians train in Colorado Springs and in Alaska? Obama did indeed do that too.  Does being more flexible mean compromising our defense of Alaska? This is absolutely the case, as Alaska is being prepared to know exception.

There is yet another rumor that is persistently being reported and it is that Putin has disappeared. This led to an Internet rumor, yesterday, that Putin was dead. The more credible sources states that Putin has, instead, retired to his nuclear bunker in the Ural Mountains at Yamanatu. What we do not know is if Putin is carrying out a drill, or is this the real thing? Either way, his retreat to his bunker should signal to the rest of us, his true intent.

Former Soviet Union Defectors Have Warned US

Anatoliy Golitsyn, a high-ranking KGB defector who fled to the United States in order to warn Americans about the secret Russian plan to attack the United States. Golitsyn is generally considered to be among the first and most revealing on the subject of the secret Russian plans to attack. Having authored the The Perestroika Deception in which Golitsyn wrote about the deceitful intent behind the Leninist strategy in which the present-day Communists are actively pursuing as they fake American style democratization efforts in Russia. According to Golitsyn, the short-term strategic objective of the Russians is to achieve a technological convergence with the West solely on Russian terms and mostly through a series of one-sided disarmament agreements. According to Golitsyn, after the United States military is eliminated as a strategic threat to Russia, the long-range strategic Russian plan is to pursue Lenin’s goal of replacing nation states with collectivist model of  regional governments as a stepping stone to global governance. In order to achieve their final goal, Golitsyn states that Russia, after lulling America to sleep, will join with China in order to attack the United States from both the outside and inside as he detailed that the Soviets and the Chinese will be officially reconciled and enact a “scissors strategy” in which China will attack the US through the southern border and Russia through northern border by way of Alaska. As the reader will clearly see in the following paragraphs, Obama is the catalyst in making these long-range communist plans come to fruition. Has Obama already signed Amerika’s surrender papers?

Is Dr. Todd correct? Do we only have 60-90 days left before everything unravels?

One Last Look At The Real Economy Before It Implodes – Part 2

March 13th, 2015 by

http://www.alt-market.com/articles/2534-one-last-look-at-the-real-economy-before-it-implodes-part-2

3-13-2015 3-05-52 PM

By Brandon Smith

Consumer spending in the U.S. accounts for approximately 70 percent of gross domestic product, though it is important to note that the manner in which “official” GDP is calculated is highly inaccurate. For example, all government money used within the Medicare coverage system to pay for “consumer health demands,” as well as the now flailing Obamacare socialized welfare program, are counted toward GDP, despite the fact that such capital is created from thin air by the Federal Reserve and also generates debt for the average taxpayer. Government debt creation does not beget successful domestic production. If that was a reality, then all socialist and communist countries (same thing) would be wildly enriched today. This is simply not the case.

That said, the swift decline in manufacturing jobs in the U.S. over the past two decades, including a considerable 33 percent overall decline in manufacturing jobs from 2001 to 2010, leaves only the consumer and service sectors as the primary areas of employment and “production.” The service sector provides about three out of every four jobs available in America, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

The truth is that America actually produces very little that is tangible beyond Big Macs, pharmaceuticals and the occasional overpriced fighter jet that doesn’t function correctly and is filled with Chinese parts. All three will kill you at varying degrees of speed…

In the first part of this article series, I discussed the true state of global demand, along with the unstable situation within numerous indicators from exports to retail. Swiftly falling global demand for raw materials as well as consumer goods is an undeniable reality. This is a distinct problem in terms of the U.S., which has been, up until recently, the primary consumption driver for much of the world. As I plan to show, U.S. demand is about to fall even further into the abyss as real unemployment and personal debt take their toll.

Now, it is probably important to address the lies presented in the mainstream and by the BLS in terms of unemployment statistics because even after years of alternative analysts debunking establishment stats and how they are calculated, we STILL end up hearing the same arguments parroted by disinformation agents and unwitting useful idiots.

Such people continue to parade around boasting about the latest BLS reports on job creation claiming that “all is well” because the unemployment rate has dropped to 5.5% and all other talk to the contrary is “doom and gloom.” So, once again, I must relate the fact that the current BLS numbers are an utter sham.

Official unemployment stats are arrived at through disingenuous methods of calculation that were introduced in the 1990s, just before the bursting of the dot com bubble; the introduction of artificially low interest rates, which created the derivatives crisis; and the steady derailment of the U.S. financial system, which has occurred ever since.

So who is actually counted as employed and who is NOT counted as employed by the BLS?

Of the 102 million working-age Americans without work today, only 8.7 million are counted by the BLS as unemployed. Out of all working-age Americans, over 92 million are without jobs and are not counted by the BLS as unemployed. Why?

Well, if you ever read establishment-leaning propaganda websites like Factcheck or Poltifact, the argument is essentially that these 92 million Americans are not counted because they “refuse to participate,” not because they can’t find adequate employment and not because the government is misrepresenting the numbers. Yes, that’s right, 92 million Americans don’t count because they clearly must not want work.

So, first, I would ask how it is that the BLS comes to the conclusion that nearly one-third of the U.S. population does not want to work? Is it through its so called “household surveys?” Surveys, just like public polls, can be easily manipulated to affirm any particular bias merely by changing how questions are phrased. I would certainly love to see the raw data from such polls before the BLS adds its own spin.

Second, even if such claims were true and tens of millions of Americans did not want to work, why would this matter? Shouldn’t they still be counted as unemployed in order to draw the most accurate picture of our economic situation? Wouldn’t 92 million Americans apparently on a long-term labor and productivity strike have a severe negative effect on real GDP? And obviously, they must be surviving somehow. Wouldn’t 92 million people eventually require government assistance through food stamps and welfare? Does none of this matter to the BLS in terms of the overall economic picture?

Third, if the assertion is that 92 million people do not want jobs, then by extension the BLS would have to show that those millions of people could in fact get a job if they simply tried. Where are these tens of millions of jobs that Americans are refusing to apply for and what do they pay?

Fourth, a common misrepresentation attached to the claim of “refusal to participate” is that many of these Americans are teens in school (16 to 18) and possible “retirees” (55 or older). The BLS and the mainstream media simply assume these people do not want a job and should not be counted as unemployed. Of course, the BLS includes such people in its stats when they DO have jobs. So, according to the BLS, if you are 16 or 55 or 65 and you have a job, then you count. If you are 16 or 55 or 65 and don’t have a job, then you don’t count. See how that works?

Fifth, millions of Americans are losing long-term unemployment benefits every quarter and are being removed from BLS statistics. Many of them are not teens or retirees. These are average-working-age adults who now no longer have any real launch pad to progress in their career or life, and who should be fully motivated to obtain work if jobs are so readily available. Again, where are these jobs that said prime-working-age people refuse to accept?

The BLS also invariably discounts the number of working-age Americans who enter the market as well when boasting of jobs created to the public. Job growth numbers do not weigh the number of new participants each month with the number of supposed jobs made available, thus creating a misconception about how many new jobs are actually needed to keep the economy functional.

Another important factor to observe in government labor statistics is the issue of part-time work. When the BLS releases its monthly stats on unemployment, it does not widely promote or discuss the fact that 18 percent to 20 percent of those labeled “employed” are considered “part-time employed.” The BLS defines “part-time employed” as anyone who works 1 to 34 hours per week. Yes, if you work one hour per week, you have helped to bring down the overall unemployment rate of the U.S. to a fantastic 5.5 percent, even though you likely have zero ability to support yourself financially, let alone a family.

What does the 5.5 percent unemployment number actually represent on a fundamental level where the real world actually matters rather than the world of hypothetical calculations? Not a damn thing. The number is absolutely and unequivocally meaningless.

If one were to calculate unemployment using pre-1990s methods, as websites like Shadowstats.com do, counting U-6 measurements as well as the underemployed, you would come up with a U.S. jobless rate closer to 23 percent.

Many of those workers in the service sector on the higher end of the part-time and full-time spectrum still cannot support themselves adequately due to falling wages, rising prices and growing debt obligations, which brings me to the next problem at hand.

Beyond unemployment as a destroyer of consumer demand, there is also personal debt. Much of the focus within the mainstream and even alternative economics revolves around national debt (I will cover the many lies surrounding national debt in my next article). However, effects on fundamental demand are far clearer when one examines household liabilities. According to averages supplied through government stats (meaning the real numbers are likely far worse), the average American household suffers from between $10,000 to $15,000 in credit card debt, $155,000 in mortgage debt and $32,000 in student loan debt.

Americans owed nearly $12 trillion overall in 2014, an increase of 3.3 percent over 2013. Declines in some debts, including a decline in credit card debts since 2011, are attributed to numerous defaults, not repayments.

What we have here is a deadly fiscal combination; namely the combination of real unemployment at permanently high levels and real personal debt at unsustainable levels. This is the core reason behind the collapse in global demand that was discussed in the first installment of this series. With U.S. consumers no longer able to support their historical consumption habits and with the inflexible skeleton of the U.S. economy in particular dependent on past consumer dynamics, the system has little financial plasma left circulating.

This is not necessarily a new trend; but 10 years ago, Americans were able to offset their dwindling buying power by taking on massive debts through easy Federal Reserve fiat fueling questionable bank loans. They no longer have this option; thus, consumption is going to degrade (and is degrading) to the point that the current financial structure, stuck in its rigid and fragile dynamic, will collapse. There is no way around it.

As stated in my last article, the numbers given here are in most cases establishment-generated statistics. A common argument among state apologists and propagandists is that we in the alternative economic field should be labeled “hypocritical” if we debunk some mainstream stats while using others as reference points. I would make clear yet again that it is the contradictions within the government’s own numbers and claims that alternative analysts are most concerned with. My view is that when mainstream numbers actually reflect negative economic trends, they should be multiplied according to other prominent factors. That is to say, when the government bureaucrats and fantasy masters finally admit things are bad, they are actually much worse than indicated.

Some mainstream statistics are outright fraudulent; some are half true; others are factual yet hidden in plain site from the general public. In between the lines of all of this information, good and bad, alternative economists attempt to discern as much foundational truth as possible. As this series continues, I believe readers new to the Liberty Movement, as well as longtime activists, will come to view a wider and fuller picture of our fiscal situation and come to the same conclusion I have – That the manner in which we live today is about to drastically change, and that this coming change is being hidden from us deliberately by those who wish to use a tactic of financial shock and awe to their ultimate advantage.

SOME THOUGHTS ON LIBERTY, AND HOW TO GET IT BACK

March 9th, 2015 by

By Olddog

“Government is instituted for the common good; for the protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness of the people; and not for profit, honor, or private interest of any one man, family, or class of men; therefore, the people alone have an incontestable, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity, and happiness require it.”- John Adams   

Last Saturday the 03 07 15 I Re-Published two articles at these addresses

 The Cataclysmic Conflict Yet to Come And What We Can Do To Stop It

and ROLLING STONE  ROTHSCHILD CORRUPTION GOES MAINSTREAM

Those of you who have read both articles should well understand that the principles on which we were told America was founded on are now relics of the past. We who survive the next few years are going to have a life of living hell. I have no doubts that this condition is the results of our own apathy, and voracious pursuit of pleasure, but neither do I intend on accepting the living hell as though there is no other alternative. That “alternative” is something I am willing to die for!

Again, if you have read both articles, you have probably been reading others of similar content, but are now convinced that we are facing an enemy so powerful that we cannot even begin to recover our once free status as law abiding citizens. Do you see as I do that nothing can possibly be done to correct the present system of governance? There is no hope! America is lost!

So what do we do now?

The only acceptable answer is that we start over the same way we were told our ancestors did, by telling the powers that be to shove it up their ass, and refuse to comply, with the objective of rebuilding another America with the principle of freedom as the soul objective of a new set of rules that will control the new government from ever being coerced again. We have learned the hard way that to take our eyes off the government is to invite tyranny to creep back in, and that is why we will draft a document that leaves nothing to be questioned. We are a hell of a lot more experienced from having experienced this disaster, and know for certain that contracts will be broken just as soon as we take our eyes off of those who swear their allegiance to uphold them and protect our freedom. We are now ready to form a bullet proof document that will keep our administrators on the straight and narrow path of obedience, or lose their life in a very painful and unhurried manner.

We now know that it is not possible for hundreds of millions of people to govern their actions based only on their own desires, and a central concept of obedience to law is imperative to the security of our Nation and the people who populate it. That is what written doctrines are for, to explain in no uncertain terms what is and what is not permitted, and they should be written in the common mans vernacular, so as to leave no room for misinterpretation.

Today’s society has been brain washed to object to permanent and inflexible doctrines, and that leaves open the door of tyranny to creep in by the use of linguistic gymnast posing as judges and lawyers. We know better now. One cannot do or say everything that suddenly pops in our head, such as; I am going to beat that old bastard next door senseless for cussing out my children, just because they stepped on his flowers. NO YOU CANNOT DO THAT WITHOUT BEING SUED AND OR THROWN IN JAIL! OR, I AM GOING TO KILL THAT QUEER FOR RAPING MY SON, which means we must address the divisive problem of marriage and homosexuality. As human beings we are subject to various levels of intelligence and personal beliefs and inflexible laws are difficult for some people to obey, but never the less, every one must accept.

Those are the kind of problems we must address in our new Constitution in minute detail, so as to leave no room for error. A good example is the way commerce was left open to enumerable interpretations in our first Constitution. Read it, and see for yourself how lacking it is in determining what is and what is not lawful. Maybe the framers had writer’s cramps, or maybe they were paid to leave the door open for future profit. Who knows?

We are going to have to address the problem of multiple interpretations in how we conduct commerce, personal relations, Banking, currency, and many more subjects, but we simply cannot have any law that is not completely expanded and explained, and expect it to govern effectively, fairly and not have to wade through thousands of freedom limiting laws only lawyers can understand. We must also address the problem of international relations, and how to keep our Nation, our people, and our States as sovereigns, and make restitution for the atrocities we have committed to other Nations.

Whether we want a national government at all, or just a department must be examined. To leave open the door to hell because we have many thousands of opinions on every subject ever thought of is to admit we have not the intelligence or commitment to build a just and orderly society, because we want to do as we please, when we please, and to hell with other peoples idea of what is acceptable behavior. Suck it up Americans; we have work to do, and enemies to subdue.

OH, one more thing, if you think we can do this without Gods help, you have excrement for brains!!! God given rights means, no government, person, or other bodies, can override them, and (NO God) means, NO PERMANENT RIGHTS! That’s how we got in this mess. If you don’t like what I have written here, give me a better solution, and be prepared to participate in the rebirth of the greatest nation on earth. This time it will really be the people who design our future.  olddog@anationbeguiled.com

I am not stupid enough to be unaware that some people will be very angry with me for this article, but I am ready and willing to take on all who are too stupid or bull headed to participate in a gentlemanly manor. Don’t F#$k with me! If you have nothing constructive to say, piss off!

The Cataclysmic Conflict Yet to Come And What We Can Do To Stop It

March 7th, 2015 by

http://www.activistpost.com/2015/03/the-cataclysmic-conflict-yet-to-come.html

Tony Cartalucci

Activist Post

Corporate-financier interests driving US foreign policy have long ago conspired to use Al Qaeda and other sectarian extremist forces to create a Pan-Arabian mercenary force with which to fight their enemies. Warned about in 2007 in a prophetic 9-page report by veteran journalist, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner Seymour Hersh, then exposed through documented evidence over the course of the past four years, and now incontrovertibly unfolding before the world’s eyes, this criminal conspiracy against world peace and all of humanity can be seen in its full, horrific form.

3-7-2015 3-07-01 PM

The war special interests in the United States along with its co-conspirators plan to wage across the planet encompasses not only the Middle East and North Africa, but also Russia, China, and beyond. It threatens the lives, peace, and prosperity of all on Earth. If it is not exposed, and the special interests driving it not undermined, uprooted, and purged from humanity, none will escape the dark days that inevitably lie ahead.

The Unheeded Warning 

It was in 2007, in the New Yorker, that veteran journalist Seymour Hersh published his lengthy, prophetic report, “The Redirection Is the Administration’s new policy benefiting our enemies in the war on terrorism?” Within it, Washington, Riyadh, and Tel Aviv were exposed amidst a criminal conspiracy to use sectarian extremists in a proxy war against Iran and its allies in Syria and Lebanon. The impending conflict was described as “cataclysmic.”

 

The report stated explicitly that (emphasis added):

To undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the Administration has cooperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda.

And because the conspiracy was exposed during the administration of US President George W. Bush, attempts by the establishment to compartmentalize current, and increasingly more obvious support by the US of Al Qaeda and the so-called “Islamic State” by characterizing it as a misstep or even “treason” by the administration of US President Barack Obama, is merely a political ploy. It is clear that instead, the policy and its execution across two supposedly diametrically opposed political parties, is an example of “continuity of agenda.”

And while the political “right” in the United States in particular feigns outrage and suspicion over the Obama administration’s ties and support for sectarian extremist organizations, including the Muslim Brotherhood and factions with direct ties to Al Qaeda, it was exposed in Hersh’s 2007 article that the Bush administration had in fact initiated this support.  Obama keeping the Oval Office’s chair warm while this policy continues.

Hersh’s report would state:

There is evidence that the Administration’s redirection strategy has already benefitted the Brotherhood. The Syrian National Salvation Front is a coalition of opposition groups whose principal members are a faction led by Abdul Halim Khaddam, a former Syrian Vice-President who defected in 2005, and the Brotherhood. A former high-ranking C.I.A. officer told me, “The Americans have provided both political and financial support. The Saudis are taking the lead with financial support, but there is American involvement.” He said that Khaddam, who now lives in Paris, was getting money from Saudi Arabia, with the knowledge of the White House. (In 2005, a delegation of the Front’s members met with officials from the National Security Council, according to press reports.) A former White House official told me that the Saudis had provided members of the Front with travel documents.

[Walid] Jumblatt said he understood that the issue was a sensitive one for the White House. “I told Cheney that some people in the Arab world, mainly the Egyptians”—whose moderate Sunni leadership has been fighting the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood for decades—“won’t like it if the United States helps the Brotherhood. But if you don’t take on Syria we will be face to face in Lebanon with Hezbollah in a long fight, and one we might not win.”

This support would manifest itself both in Egypt and Syria, where the Muslim Brotherhood, its political networks, and armed groups built within them, served as the foundation of unrest and violence that took place under the cover of regional US-engineered political subversion often referred to as the “Arab Spring.” In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood would succeed temporarily in seizing power. In Syria, the Brotherhood would trigger violence and eventually devastating, protracted war.

Perhaps throughout Hersh’s 9-page report, the most sobering warning came from a former CIA agent in Lebanon. Hersh’s report would state:

Robert Baer, a former longtime C.I.A. agent in Lebanon, has been a severe critic of Hezbollah and has warned of its links to Iranian-sponsored terrorism. But now, he told me, “we’ve got Sunni Arabs preparing for cataclysmic conflict, and we will need somebody to protect the Christians in Lebanon. It used to be the French and the United States who would do it, and now it’s going to be Nasrallah and the Shiites.

3-7-2015 3-09-37 PM

And this is precisely what is now unfolding all across the Middle East and North Africa. A cataclysmic conflict driven by sectarian extremists waging war on minority groups across the region, with only Iran, Syria, and Hezbollah left to defend them – and with the United States and its allies doing everything imaginable to stop them from doing so.

Clearly the “French and the United States,” cannot reprise their role as protectors of the region’s minorities, since they have openly thrown in their lot – as predicted by Hersh in 2007 and as is evident today – with Al Qaeda and ISIS.

ISIS is Al Qaeda – And America is Backing them Both 

Attempts to compartmentalize political responsibility for the rise and perpetuation of extremists across the Arab World is not the only game being played by Western special interests. They have also attempted to compartmentalize the extremists themselves.

3-7-2015 3-12-46 PM

In Syria, Al Qaeda in the form of Jabhat al-Nusra, has been the prevailing armed faction throughout the conflict, beginning in 2011. This isn’t according to the Syrian government and “Bashar al Assad’s propaganda,” this is according to the US State Department itself which listed them as a foreign terrorist organization in 2012. In their official statement, “Terrorist Designations of the al-Nusrah Front as an Alias for al-Qa’ida in Iraq,” they reported:

Since November 2011, al-Nusrah Front has claimed nearly 600 attacks – ranging from more than 40 suicide attacks to small arms and improvised explosive device operations – in major city centers including Damascus, Aleppo, Hamah, Dara, Homs, Idlib, and Dayr al-Zawr. During these attacks numerous innocent Syrians have been killed. Through these attacks, al-Nusrah has sought to portray itself as part of the legitimate Syrian opposition while it is, in fact, an attempt by AQI to hijack the struggles of the Syrian people for its own malign purposes. AQI emir Abu Du’a is in control of both AQI and al-Nusrah. Abu Du’a was designated by the State Department under E.O. 13224 on October 3, 2011, and by the United Nations under UN Security Council Resolution 1267 on October 5, 2011. Abu Du’a also issues strategic guidance to al-Nusrah’s emir, Abu Muhammad al-Jawlani, and tasked him to begin operations in Syria.

3-7-2015 3-13-54 PM

For readers who may have believed the US State Department’s claims that “al-Nusrah has sought to portray itself as part of the legitimate Syrian opposition while it is, in fact, an attempt by AQI to hijack the struggles of the Syrian people for its own malign purposes,” they may be shocked to discover that now, apparently, al-Nusra is considered by the US and its allies among the “legitimate Syrian opposition.”

In order to make this possible, Nusra is carrying out a public relations campaign with the aid of American and European media monopolies – including Reuters who in their report titled, “Insight – Syria’s Nusra Front may leave Qaeda to form new entity,” would claim:

Leaders of Syria’s Nusra Front are considering cutting their links with al Qaeda to form a new entity backed by some Gulf states trying to topple President Bashar al-Assad, sources said.

Sources within and close to Nusra said that Qatar, which enjoys good relations with the group, is encouraging the group to go ahead with the move, which would give Nusra a boost in funding.

Of course, Nusra is already harbored, aided, armed, and abetted by NATO, using NATO territory in Turkey as a base of operations. And while Reuters attempts to portray Nusra as “the enemy of our enemy,” claiming the rebranding and boost in funding would help them fight the “Islamic State,” by all accounts Nusra and ISIS are already one in the same.

What’s worse is that this trick of portraying Al Qaeda as a bifurcated movement at odds with itself to compartmentalize and use the same organization for multiple, and at times, opposing objectives, was already seen during the US occupation of Iraq.

The New York Times in its article, “Leader of Al Qaeda group in Iraq was fictional, U.S. military says,” would admit:

Brigadier General Kevin Bergner, the chief American military spokesman, said the elusive Baghdadi was actually a fictional character whose audio-taped declarations were provided by an elderly actor named Abu Adullah al-Naima.

The ruse, Bergner said, was devised by Abu Ayub al-Masri, the Egyptian-born leader of Al Qaeda in Mesopotamia, who was trying to mask the dominant role that foreigners play in that insurgent organization.

The ploy was to invent Baghdadi, a figure whose very name establishes his Iraqi pedigree, install him as the head of a front organization called the Islamic State of Iraq and then arrange for Masri to swear allegiance to him. Ayman al-Zawahiri, Osama bin Laden’s deputy, sought to reinforce the deception by referring to Baghdadi in his video and Internet statements.

Indeed, the “Islamic State in Iraq” was fictional. It was Al Qaeda all along, just like the “Islamic State in Syria and Iraq” or “ISIS” is also fictional, a functionary of Al Qaeda and the foreign interests sponsoring it.

The reality of this couldn’t be illustrated any more perfectly than with the case of Libyan terrorist Abdelhakim Belhadj. Having been a member of the “Libyan Islamic Fighting Group” or LIFG for decades, he would literally travel to Afghanistan where he would fight American soldiers in the wake of 9/11. He was even captured and enrolled in the United States’ infamous “rendition program.” Upon release from prison in Libya, he would promptly organize and lead armed rebellion against the government Muammar Qaddafi, with extensive NATO arms, cash, and even air cover.

2007 West Point Combating Terrorism Center (CTC) report examining the demographics of foreign fighters caught in Iraq fighting then occupying US troops would reveal that the NATO-backed rebels in Libya led by Belhaj were in fact fighters drawn from the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) listed by both the US State Department and UK Home Office as a foreign terrorist organization.

3-7-2015 3-15-11 PM

In essence then, the United States and its NATO partners knowingly and willfully handed the nation of Libya and its people over to Al Qaeda. Despite Belhaj’s documented terrorist past and present, US politicians would meet with him, showering upon him accolades, praise, and continued political and military support. Among these politicians were US Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham who met and literally shook Belhaj’s hand while standing upon the ruins of Libya.

That McCain and Graham are both Republicans supporting terrorism, alongside a Democrat US President also allegedly supporting terrorism, illustrates perfectly that special interests own and control both sides of the political aisle, using opposing rhetoric to appeal members on either side, while both sides carry forward the exact same agenda.

More recently, US news sources claimed Belhaj was now leading Libya’s branch of ISIS. The Washington Times would report in an article titled, “U.S. backed rebel reportedly leads Islamic State in Libya,” that:

Major news out of Libya as Abdelhakim Belhadj, the former head of the al Qaeda-linked Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, and a major player in the U.S.-backed overthrow of Moammar Gadhafi, has reportedly joined the Islamic State and is leading its forces there. This according to The Blaze National Security journalist Sara Carter on Twitter, and Fox News’ Catherine Herridge in a Fox News report.

Western news sources had reported as early as November of last year that many of the so-called “rebels” in Libya had begun forming under the banner of ISIS. CNN in an article titled, “ISIS comes to Libya,” claimed:

The black flag of ISIS flies over government buildings. Police cars carry the group’s insignia. The local football stadium is used for public executions. A town in Syria or Iraq? No. A city on the coast of the Mediterranean, in Libya.

Fighters loyal to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria are now in complete control of the city of Derna, population of about 100,000, not far from the Egyptian border and just about 200 miles from the southern shores of the European Union. The fighters are taking advantage of political chaos to rapidly expand their presence westwards along the coast, Libyan sources tell CNN.This means that US politicians served a direct role in propping up ISIS in Libya, whether they claim it was incidental rather than intentional – a cautionary tale to be told as these very same politicians attempt a repeat performance in Syria and beyond.
The rebranding of NATO’s terrorist proxies in Libya and attempts to literally back and arm Al Qaeda’s Nusra front in Syria portend an impending conflict of a scale yet to be seen – one involving Libya’s neighbor Egypt, and Syria’s neighbor, Iran.

The “Cataclysmic Conflict” Yet to Come 

Egypt narrowly escaped subjugation by the West through the very same Muslim Brotherhood networks used to destabilize and destroy Syria. After initially bending to the sociopolitical currents unleashed by the 2011 “Arab Spring,” the Egyptian military sprung back, ejecting the Muslim Brotherhood from power amid a military coup.

Egypt’s new military-led government moved with merciless lighting speed in suppressing the Muslim Brotherhood domestically. Hundreds of Muslim Brotherhood members, including leaders have been rounded up, tried, and sentenced to death. The military-led government has exhibited zero tolerance both for militant groups within their borders, and street demonstrations agitated by US NGOs and used for cover behind which militants operate.

3-7-2015 3-17-09 PM

All of this was carried out, as drastic as many of the measures may seem, with the intention ofsparing Egypt the same protracted conflict Syria is now suffering.

The failure of the West’s “Arab Spring” putsch with the fall of the Muslim Brotherhood, and its subsequent inability to stoke sufficient unrest from within Egypt’s borders has led to the sudden and convenient conjuring of ISIS in neighboring Libya. Already, heinous acts of barbarity have been carried out against Egyptian citizens residing in Libya for the sole purpose of stoking sectarian flames within Egypt’s borders.

Egypt has responded by supporting military factions in Libya fighting Belhaj’s sectarian extremists, now operating under the banner of ISIS. Egypt has also conducted airstrikes on Libyan territory itself.  As NATO’s proxies commit to ever bolder acts of provocation, the conflict is set only to expand.

What is to come, and the purpose of unveiling ISIS in Libya, is a torrent of terrorism and militancy, backed by NATO, aimed directly at the Egyptian military and – if possible – into the heart of Egypt itself.

Egypt, with a population of over 80 million people, if made to suffer the same sort of protracted conflict Syria is now suffering at the hands of Western backed terrorists, would cost an immeasurable loss in life and destabilize not only both North Africa and the Middle East – across which Egypt’s sphere of influence lies – but also endanger international shipping through the Suez Canal and threaten Europe with an influx of refugees fleeing what would be a war zone of unprecedented modern day dimensions.

3-7-2015 3-18-07 PM

Either as part of a strategy to destabilize and destroy Egypt, or to excise from Cairo geopolitical concessions including the abandonment of Syria as well as Egypt’s backing amid increasing hostilities toward Iran, the West’s use of ISIS in Libya is yet another manifestation of what veteran journalist Seymour Hersh warned about in his 2007 report.

ISIS will form the foundation of a regional mercenary force aimed conveniently at the hearts of each and every one of Wall Street and Washington’s enemies, while suspiciously, ISIS spares all of the West’s allies.

The ongoing violence in Libya and Syria is only the beginning. Should Egypt and Iran be mired in the same widespread violence, fueled by billions upon billions in cash, equipment, and weapons flowing from all corners of the Earth into the region, the “cataclysmic conflict” warned about in 2007 will finally come to pass.

3-7-2015 3-19-07 PM

It will not end in the Middle East. If successful in establishing hegemony there, the chaos will spread to all corners of the globe. First to southern Russia and western China, then beyond. The question of whether or not one will eventually be affected by this conflict is not a matter of if, but a matter of when.

Uprooting the Conspirators 

This is not “Obama’s” war. Nor is this a “Republican” or “Neo-Con” war. This is a war for global hegemony waged by the corporations, banks, and institutions upon Wall Street and in Washington that transcend elections and own parties on all sides and in all corners of the current, prevailing political paradigm. Appealing to a political party controlled by these interests is the very definition of futile.

3-7-2015 3-20-13 PM

ImageGrowing your own food locally can be profitable and satisfying. It is also one of several means of localization with which to undermine and redistribute the immense concentration of unwarranted power and influence enjoyed by the corporate-financier interests driving chaos globally. 

In order to undermine and uproot these special interests, these corporations, banks, and institutions must be replaced by local alternatives – on a national level around the planet, and on a provincial, state, and local level within each nation.

It is not merely “Walmart,” “Pepsi,” or “Exxon” themselves as corporations, but rather the concentration of power, wealth, and influence these corporations collectively represent. Often it is the same board members and financial interests holding stakes in each corporation, and it is this handful of shareholders that in turn, fund policy think tanks behind policy papers engineering wars of aggression, including the current proxy war being waged through “ISIS” and “Al Qaeda.”

3-7-2015 3-21-22 PM

Decentralizing these vast monopolies through the creation and proliferation of local alternatives will systematically undermine their capacity to wield the unwarranted power and influence they currently enjoy. Whether it is decentralizing big-retailbig-telecombig-pharma, or big-auto in general, or targeting specific monopolies like Facebook, there are already people working around the world to make this happen and simply need more people to leave the perpetual distractions and diversions of global politics, and begin paying into localization.

The alternative media has already proven the power of people turning from consumers and into producers, and the redistribution and balance of power and influence it creates. Imagine tackling all monopolies in a similar manner.

While the conflicts ravaging the Middle East and North Africa seem “remote,” the fact that similar chaos is now being sown by NATO on the doorstep of Europe in Ukraine, means that if left unchallenged, it is only a matter of time before these conflicts affect everyone directly, no matter where one lives. Rather than organizing protests or taking up arms in an impossible, fictional future battle against tyranny, decentralizing massive monopolies globally, and building up our communities locally is something we can begin doing today – with something as simple as planting a garden to first reduce our dependency on big-agriculture.   In the near future, these activities could become profitable, and before that, certainly satisfying and constructive.

We have nothing to lose by trying, and everything to lose if we don’t.

PCR Interviewed by pravda.ru about America History Curriculum

 

PCR Interviewed by pravda.ru about the attempt by the Advanced Placement History Curriculum to introduce some honesty into the teaching of US history

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/10/03/pcr-interviewed-pravda-ru-attempt-advanced-placement-history-curriculum-introduce-honesty-teaching-us-history/

By PCR & pravda.ru editor

The tendency of US history textbooks is to justify any US atrocity from the point of view of the defense of US interests. “Exceptional” America is exempt from laws of morality applied to other countries.

Republicans are attempting to prevent the introduction of the Advanced Placement curriculum until the textbook can be “revised” in order to ensure that students are propagandized rather than informed.

The editors of pravda.ru asked PCR for his view of the matter. This is what he said:

“In my opinion, the Republican Party today and a majority of Americans who think of themselves as conservatives are not, in fact, traditional American conservatives.  They comprise a form of brownshirts who are intolerant of dissent and want to impose social control.  They support government instead of the Constitution, and they frown on civil liberty as a form of legal permissiveness that coddles criminals and terrorists.

“These so-called conservatives attribute the US defeat in Vietnam to student protests and to journalists who disputed Washington’s lies. They regard protests as a threat to the status quo, and not as a way to express public dissent from government policies.  Conservatives are for democracy only as long as they control behavior in the democracy.

“In the 1940s and 1950s public school courses such as history and literature were largely up to the individual teacher. Consequently, there was a lot of diversity in what was taught. As time passed, especially after the 1964 Civil Rights Act and school integration, courses became increasingly standardized, partly in order to judge school performance with standardized state or national testing, and partly, according to some, to ensure that minorities were not offended by course content.  The obvious consequence is that a form of national brainwashing was put in place that instilled in the young acceptable beliefs  about their country.

“For the so-called conservatives, any criticism of America is an unpatriotic act.  In the 21st century it has become increasingly difficult to protest in the US.  The former Director of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano, declared that the new department had shifted its focus from terrorists to “domestic extremists,” a group she defined as war protesters, environmentalists, and animal rights advocates.  Indeed, a national police force called Homeland Security itself indicates an increasing concern with protecting those in control from dissent.

“The increasing gratuitous violence of police against members of the public is also an indication that there has been a fundamental shift in the position of the government in relation to the people.  The purpose of government in the US is not to serve the will of the people, but to conform the behavior of the people to the will of the government.

“The same thing appears to be the case in Australia, Canada, the UK, and Europe.  For example, in the UK, 99% of the people are opposed to fracking, but the government has ignored the people and permits fracking to take place under the homes of people without their consent.

“In the West, I think that the idea of democracy is dead.  Democracy is no longer a respected value.  Elections serve as a cloak to mask the death of democracy.”

LESSONS FROM THE BEGINNING (III)

March 6th, 2015 by

montezumaconstitution@gmail.com

 By Michael Gaddy

(Authors note: Several readers have asked about the importance of covering the fact Madison, Hamilton and others were pushing a nationalist form of government. This information is critical because the nationalist/monarchial form of government that was introduced and supported by Madison, Hamilton and others was repeatedly defeated, both in the Constitutional Convention of 1787 and the subsequent State Ratifying Conventions. Unfortunately, what our founders intended, a Republic, has long since been abandoned for the nationalist form of government the majority opposed. In fact, our government has morphed into a National Socialist form of government not ideologically different than the National Socialist government of Germany in the 30’s and 40’s.)

Regardless of how many times you read it, or how many revisionist court historians write it, there is absolutely no evidence available which indicates there was a groundswell of support among the people for abandoning the Articles of Confederation.

 Where might one go to discover the truth of my allegation? Why not to the words of the man who most wanted to change the limitations of the Articles to a form of government much more to his liking; a monarchy, and failing that, a strong centralized national government: Alexander Hamilton. Here it is in his words.

Men of intelligence, discovered the feebleness of the structure, [Articles of Confederation] but the great body of the people, too much engrossed with their distresses to contemplate any but the immediate causes of them, were ignorant of the defects of their Constitution.”

Patrick Henry of Virginia saw through the deception; he did not believe the Articles were weak. Speaking on the subject he said:

“The Confederation; this same despised Government, merits, in my opinion, the highest encomium: it carried us through a long and dangerous war. It rendered us victorious in that bloody conflict with a powerful nation: it has secured us a territory greater than any Monarch possesses. And a government which has been thus strong and vigorous be accused of imbecility and abandoned for a want of energy…Why then tell us dangers to terrify us into an adoption of this new Government? And yet who knows the dangers this new system may produce; they are out of sight of the common people. It is for them I fear the adoption of this new system. Sir, it is the fortune of a free people, not to be intimidated by imaginary dangers. Fear is the passion of slaves.”

We know that the framers of the Articles of Confederation had included the following in Article II of our first Constitution.

“Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every power, jurisdiction, and right, which is not by this Confederation expressly delegated to the United States, in Congress assembled.”

This was one of the conditions present in the Articles that the nationalist/monarchists knew they had to eliminate. The nationalist/monarchist did not want to contend with the ideas, questions and objections from 13 different colonies, but instead wanted to have one people in aggregate (a nation) controlled by a central all-powerful form of government, which they would lead. This would leave the states having very little to no voice in how they would be governed. Is any of this beginning to sound familiar?

The states, “retaining their sovereignty, freedom and independence” from the control of “men of intelligence” as Hamilton had described himself and his cronies, would have as their government a confederated republic, the complete antithesis of a nationalist form of government. In addition, none of the “men of intelligence” wanted a government that would be limited to those powers which would be “expressly delegated” through the “consent of the governed.”

Again, understanding the difference between “expressly delegated” powers and “granted” powers is to understand the crucial difference in tyranny and limited, representative government. Expressly delegated means there is little to no room for “interpretation” by government employees and bureaucrats and clearly defines the intent of our founders.

It is of the highest importance that one understands that the federal government, in the Articles of Confederation, could operate only on the states; it had no control or power over individuals.

If an egregious or tyrannical law was passed by the federal government, the state had the ability to simply ignore it. The federal government could not arrest or imprison a state. Therefore, the “intelligent men” in Hamilton’s view realized they must have a national form of government that could and would act on the individual.

I believe this to be the very first confrontation between nationalists and advocates of State’s Rights, a battle that would surface again in the 1830’s with Justice Joseph Story and Senator Daniel Webster on the side of nationalism and Senator John C. Calhoun on the side of State’s Rights. (This battle of words and ideas will be covered later in our studies) This battle of ideas would eventually lead to an open, bloody war in 1861; a war that would take the lives of over 700,000 individuals and permanently install a nationalist form of government in our country.

Every malady and malaise that faces us in our country today can be traced to the implementation of nationalism instead of a strict adherence to the rights of the people of a state to nullify acts of government. Ah, but ignorance reigns supreme, for on any given day you can find a group of people somewhere, who mistakenly believe they are being “patriotic,” robotically pledging allegiance to “One nation…indivisible” a phrase written by a national socialist.

It is also of importance that when the Constitutional Convention of 1787 opened in May of that year, a time when representatives of only 6 states were in attendance, the first resolution adopted stated, “a national government ought to be established.” Again, to confirm that the idea of a national form of government was repeatedly voted down in the Constitutional Convention of 1787, once representatives from other states had arrived, the record of the proceedings as recorded by Robert Yates, delegate from New York, commonly known as “Yates Minutes,” stated the following:

“Ellsworth. [Oliver Ellsworth, delegate from Connecticut] I propose, and therefore move, to expunge the word ‘national’ in the first resolve, and to place in the room of it, government of the United States,’ which was agreed to nem con.”

Hopefully, this session has clearly illustrated that our current form of government which is totally nationalist in nature, though it was proposed and supported by several of our founders who declared themselves to be “intelligent men,” is not the form of government favored by the majority of our founders and ratified by the several states.

To be continued.

In Liberty

The How and Why Behind Obamas Mysterious Rise to the Presidency

March 5th, 2015 by

http://globalwarming-arclein.blogspot.ca/2015/03/the-how-and-why-behind-obamas.html


3-5-2015 9-27-00 AM

Posted by arclein

I have a more important question.  Why are these claims never answered?   We are slowly collecting more and more pieces of a serious puzzle and this paints a picture of a tightly trained and brain washed individual who truly lacks critical intellectual skills as well.  That would have been too tricky.

My deathly concern is that this deadly cliche who have lived their entire lives wrapped up in a political dream will really attempt to seize control through a coup de etat.  We have had one already with the killing of Kennedy.   This item outlines the edges of a plausible conspiracy that was financially deep and able to utterly control the press.   That latter detail was blindingly apparent from the beginning and gave me serious disquiet.  It still allowed this president.

Now we see him making less ad less sense in terms of policy as he faces real challenges

 He lived in a Muslim household until he was about ten years of age.  Then he was indoctrinated by a communist for the next decade.  Then he landed in Chicago were his christian exposure was as convincing as the church in south Africa during Apartheid.   It is impossible for this child to have a christian sensibility.  Worse he then took his degree in sociology which was all about Marxism.  He has had as close to a Marxist education as it is possible to get in the USA.   Then he was trained as a political organizer and skated with powerful assists into the presidency while remaining utterly unexamined.

Is it any wonder he cannot say Christian nor do anything except apologize for Islam. Yet he is not a fanatic either and he is not an intellectual.  For all that he had an excellent ghost writer in bill Ayers.

What he is is a stalking horse for all those communist  fanatics still living out their secular version of Islam.  That makes him potentially very dangerous.

I never thought that i would see the need  for a complete cleansing of the USA political system, but it has truly come to that.  Something very wrong has occurred here and it is treason that hundreds if not thousands of individuals who crossed the line most unwittingly.

The How and Why Behind Obama’s Mysterious Rise to the Presidency

12 Nov, 2014 by Dave Hodge

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2014/11/12/the-how-and-why-behind-obamas-mysterious-rise-to-the-presidency/

How does a man get elected President after serving less than one full term as a U.S. Senator? Does being a community activist/antagonist qualify one for the highest office in the land? Were the Soviet defectors correct in that Obama is the manifestation of a multi-generational plot to bring America to her knees? It is easy to comprehend how and why Putin would want to destroy America. But is Obama is his accomplice in this mission which could imperil all of us?

Who is he?

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2014/11/12/the-how-and-why-behind-obamas-mysterious-rise-to-the-presidency/

Former FBI Weatherman Task Force supervisor, Max Noel, noted that the FBI utilized a CARL test when it conducted background checks on various suspects. The acronym CARL stands for Character, Associates, Reputation, and Loyalty is used to assess candidates fitness to hold the highest office in the country. On each of these four points of power, Obama fails and fails miserably. Like many FBI law enforcement agents and officials, Noel was alarmed by the fact that someone like Barack Obama could capture the presidency. For some unexplained reason, Obama was never vetted before he became a candidate for the presidency by the FBI. This is an unacceptable result of our national security system and is wholly suggestive of internal plot to allow the installation of a blatantly communist advocate into the highest political position in America.

Soviet Defectors Warn of Deception and the Emergence of a Manchurian Candidate

Did you really think Alger Hiss would be the last communist traitor to serve in a high level US governmental position?

Through the testimony of high-ranking Soviet defectors, it can clearly be established that the Russians have been engaged in a multi-generational plot to destroy the United States from within and from without. Domestically, the Russian communists are in the midst of completing a coup d’état, with the help their communist stooge, Barack Obama. In the following paragraphs, the verbatim statements of high ranking Soviet defectors are offered as proof of these claims. The first three defectors tell how the Soviets are setting the table for America’s demise. Stunningly, the fourth defector warns our country of a Manchurian candidate type of leadership whose job it will be to hand over a weakened America to the Russians (see Part Two).

Today, many people have been in a position to now vet the President after Obama’s first six years in office and observed his “fundamental transformation of America“. This particular series will continue to connect the dots of the secretive and nefarious communist background of Barack Hussein Obama.

Obama Moves To Obscure His Background

With the general warning by Russian defectors that a traitor was waiting in the wings, it is time to reveal the true nature of the Manchurian candidate who sits in the Oval office through a brief examination of his family members with CIA affiliations along with their exposure to the MKULTRA mind control experiments being conducted at the University of Hawaii.

With the stroke of his executive order pen, President Obama quickly moved to seal off his records from public view after his election. However, he was too late to completely hide his background as researchers, such as Wayne Madsen, have found significant information to demonstrate that what Obama has omitted, is that his rare rise to power can only be explained by his family’s CIA roots.

The election of Barack Hussein Obama is the culmination of what the Soviet defectors have been warning America about for decades in that Obama’s ascendency to the Presidency was part of a documented long-term strategic plan to recruit selected candidates into intelligence, while guiding these individuals and their families into high-ranking intelligence community positions before executing the meteoric rise to power by one of their own. For example, George H. W. Bush was a former CIA director, and CIA member going back to the 1950’s and thanks to Wayne Madsen, we now know that Obama’s family was CIA and not just CIA, but a CIA mind controlled family.

Obama is the Soviet messiah as he will eventually become known as the Second Coming of Stalin. He has been prophesied by Soviet defectors Lunev, Golitsyn, Suvorov and Bezmenov, and now he is here to fulfill his mission.
Phase I of Obama’s Grooming for Treason: The Obama Family’s CIA Background

Question: What does Barack Obama and the “Unabomber” Ted Kaczynski have in common?

Answer: Both Kaczynski and Obama had significant exposure to the MK-ULTRA experiments;Kaczynski at Harvard and Obama at the University of Hawaii and the Ford Foundation much earlier. Outrageous?

The following paragraph represents quoted excerpts from Wayne Madsen’s exceptional investigation into the Obama family CIA background:

“President Obama’s own work in 1983 for Business International Corporation, a CIA front that conducted seminars with the world’s most powerful leaders and used journalists as agents abroad, dovetails with CIA espionage activities conducted by his mother, Stanley Ann Dunham in 1960’s post-coup Indonesia on behalf of a number of CIA front operations, including the East-West Center at the University of Hawaii, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Ford Foundation. Dunham met and married Lolo Soetoro, Obama’s stepfather, at the East-West Center in 1965. Soetoro was recalled to Indonesia in 1965 to serve as a senior army officer and assist General Suharto and the CIA in the bloody overthrow of President Sukarno…. Soetoro worked for the elitist Ford Foundation, World Bank, Asian Development Bank, Bank Rakyat (the majority government-owned People’s Bank of Indonesia), and the CIA-linked USAID while she lived in Indonesia and later, Pakistan….. Barack Obama, on the other hand, cleverly masked his own CIA connections as well as those of his mother, father, step-father, and grandmother (there is very little known about Obama’s grandfather, Stanley Armour Dunham.“

Madsen painstakingly and conclusively demonstrated that virtually all of Obama’s relatives were CIA operatives. Madsen has found even more CIA connections to Obama’s first employer. Madsen further went on to describe how Obama’s family was clearly exposed and was intimately connected to MK-ULTRA’s mind control program at the University of Hawaii. Info Wars also carried Madsen’s expose and it is available here.

It’s a Small World, After All

President Obama’s family and former Ex-Goldman Sachs executive, Ex-Treasury Secretary and World Bank leader,Tim Geithner and his family have been joined together at the hip for decades. Tim Geithner’s father worked for the CIA in the Rockefeller funded Ford Foundation in Asia. Geitner’s father was in charge of micro-finance for the Ford Foundation for all of Asia. From Wayne Madsen’s work, we know that President Obama’s mother was in charge of micro-finance in Indonesia. The Hollywood producers could not make this plot up. Geithner’s father was Obama’s mother’s boss. It is likely that Geithner’s father tagged Obama as a potential presidential CIA Ford Foundation, well-groomed Manchurian candidate.

Additional information comes from the discovery that the two universities that Obama attended, Harvard and Columbia, were prime CIA recruiting grounds. The Ford and Rockefeller Foundations continued to fund Columbia’s Soviet studies programs through the early 1980s, where Obama was a student. And would anyone care to guess what Obama was studying?

Trilateral Commission co-founder, former National Security Adviser to Carter and Obama’s former professor and now political handler.

Obama was enrolled in a Soviet studies program taught by Zbigniew Brzezinski. And to those who are new to NWO conspiracies, one might wonder who is Brzezinski? Brzezinski was the former National Security Adviser under President Carter. But more importantly, he was also the co-founder of one of the most influential globalist organizations in all of history, the Trilateral Commission. If you know your New World Order history, you have chills going up and down your spine as you read these words. We should be mindful that Brzezinski, in his book, Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technetronic Era (1970), that he laid out the NWO conspiracy to control all nation states and usher in a totalitarian world government.

There are two chilling quotes by Brzezinski in his aforementioned book that come directly to bear on Obama and his meteoric rise to power:“In the technetronic society the trend would seem to be towards the aggregation of the individual support of millions of uncoordinated citizens, easily within the reach of magnetic and attractive personalities exploiting the latest communications techniques to manipulate emotions and control reason.”

In the second quote, Brzezinski is clearly calling for the installation of CIA/MKULTRA mind control leaders. Today, Brzezinski would his former understudy, Obama, a President with an undeniable “magnetic and attractive personality exploiting the latest communications techniques designed to manipulate emotions and control reason.”

Comrade Obama’s ascension to the presidency has been a long time in the making. Interestingly, Barack Obama’s past associates especially the communist terrorists which funded his Harvard legal education and ultimately launched his political career as an Illinois state senator, namely, Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn, have been in lockstep with Obama his entire adult life. However, Dohrn and Ayers were not the first to indoctrinate Obama with the Marxist communist philosophy. For that information, we have to begin with Frank Marshall Davis.

Obama’s real father, Frank Marshall Davis, was a member of the Communist Party and a former Soviet Agent who was under FBI investigation for a total of 19 years. In 1948, Davis moved from Chicago to Hawaii leaving behind a colleague named Vernon Jarrett, father-in-law of Senior White House adviser, Valerie Jarrett. Yes, the Jarrett’s are communists as well. Both Jarrett and Davis wrote for a left wing newspaper called the Chicago Defender in which they espoused a communist takeover of the United States Government. In 1971, Davis, according toJoel Gilbert, reunited with his then nine-year-old son, Barack Obama, and schooled him in the ways of being a good communist for the next nine years.

The Final Stages of Training the Manchurian Candidate

Adding more fuel to this communist fire, it is interesting to note that both Senior White House Advisers, David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett were both also “Red Diaper Babies, in which they were the sons and daughters of well-to-do parents who desired communism and lived out their dreams through their children’s revolutionary activities. Other notable red-diaper babies also include such notables as Rahm Emanuel and Eric Holder. Jarrett’s situation is particularly interesting in that her family and the Ayers family have been multi-generational friends which also included a marriage between the two families. Much of the Obama administration is a nest of well-established communists and this should serve to gravely concern every American citizen.

Following the nine years of mentoring and parenting by Frank Davis, Obama made some very important communist connections which ultimately led to him obtaining an impressive college education financed by some very familiar communist activists, namely, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn. You remember Bill and Bernardine, don’t you?

The Prairie Fire book was co-authored by Dohrn and Ayers, and, quite unbelievably, it was dedicated to Sirhan Sirhan, Robert Kennedy’s assassin. A former FBI informant, while appearing on The Common Sense Show, Larry Grathwohl, revealed that he testified in a court of law that Ayers and Dohrn had direct involvement in a terrorist plot which killed San Francisco police sergeant, Brian V. McDonnell, by a bomb made and planted by these Weathermen Underground terrorists. How are Bernadine Dohrn and husband Bill Ayers not in prison? The only logical explanation is that Ayers and Dohrn are and were CIA assets whose mission it was consisted of guiding the young communist, Barack Obama, and his legal education and later, launching his political career. If Dohrn was not a CIA asset, then how can anyone explain how she teaches at a prominent university with her felony background, conviction and the time she briefly served in prison?

Grathwohl also revealed on The Common Sense Show that he asked Ayers, in a meeting of about 25 well-to do Weatherman, most with advanced degrees from Ivy League Universities, what the Weathermen planned to do when they achieved their goal of a communist take over the government. Grathwohl stated that Ayers paused for a moment and then said that it was likely that about 50 million Americans will have to be re-educated in concentration camps located in the American Southwest and that about 25 million would have to be eliminated, meaning that they would have to be murdered. Bill and Bernardine’s Weather Underground had the support of Cuba, East German intelligence and the North Vietnamese. I believe that Obama could end up being the fulfillment of the Ayers “re-education prediction, and with the power granted to Obama by the NDAA, that he will fulfill Ayers’ promise to Grathwohl to murder 25 million Americans who cannot be “re-educated”.

During the Vietnam war era, Ayers championed black civil rights and he and Dohrn further chastised white society for their treatment of blacks. Grathwohl also revealed that Ayers wanted to support the beginning of a race war by killing whites, from supposed black villains, and then blaming whites in order to begin a race war. How eerily similar does this sound to the Charles Manson Family and their Helter Skelter plans to execute that very same objective? While Grathwohl was infiltrating the Weathermen, Ayers ordered FBI infiltrator, Grathwohl, to blow up a Detroit police substation to which Grathwohl said that a nearby restaurant, where many blacks ate would suffer many casualties. Ayers replied that some have to die for a revolution to proceed.

3-5-2015 9-28-14 AM

Ayers and Dohrn raised a foster son, Chesa Boudin, who worked for the late Hugo Chavez, communist dictator in charge of Venezuela. Chesa Boudin was the child of Kathy Boudin and David Gilbert, members of a Weather Underground spin-off group who went to prison for an armored car robbery that resulted in the murders of two police officers and a security guard. Dohrn served seven months for her role in the robbery and this is the reason that she is ineligible to become bar certified as an attorney. Is anyone else uncomfortable with the fact that  

Ayers and Dohrn were the ones primarily responsible for educating Obama with the communist funds and then subsequently launched his political career from their living room? Well, it is true, please read on.

Allen Hulton, a 39 year veteran of the postal service, provided a sworn affidavit to Maricopa County, AZ. Sheriff investigators, led by Sheriff Joe Arpaio, in an effort toward determining whether or not former FOREIGN college student, Barack Obama, was eligible to be placed on Arizona’s 2012 election ballot. After reviewing Hulton’s affidavit, it is apparent that Ayers and Dohrn were in fact the de facto adoptive parents to this foreign student destined to become the first illegitimate President of the United States. As a result, Obama was treated to the finest Ivy League education that communist backed money could buy as Hulton maintains that the Ayers’ repeatedly told him that they were financing the education of a promising young black FOREIGN student at Harvard. Hulton also testified that he met Obama while at the Ayer’s home and he asked Obama what he was going to do with all his education, to which Obama politely answered:

“I am going to become the President”. Readers should take note that this is an affidavit, and as such, is formally considered to be evidence, not conjecture or hearsay. There can be no other conclusion that the communist terrorist, Bill Ayers, and his father, the former head of Con Edison, Tom Ayers, began grooming Obama to become America’s first communist President. Bill Ayers and President Obama’s relationship continues into the present time as it is on record that Ayers visited the White House in August of 2009.

3-5-2015 9-29-18 AM

I think it is likely that the Weatherman Underground was a CIA created false flag operation simply designed to assist the communist inspired group with the ability to undermine the country and that Obama represents the

Weatherman’s finest achievement. The Weathermen were nothing more than mere Soviet collaborators that Soviet defectors had previously us warned about.

We also know that Obama’s communist affiliations continued well into his adulthood because of the good work of Joel Gilbert who discovered that Obama was active with a Weathermen Underground support group known as The May 19th Communist Organization, in New York.Perhaps, this is why Ayers was visiting the White House in 2009.

The Communists Openly Declare Victory Upon Obama’s Election

Frank Chapman, a communist activist and a member of the communist front group known as the World Peace Council. Chapman clearly used the term “mole” to describe Obama. He said Obama’s political climb and subsequent success in the 2008 Democratic presidential primaries was “a dialectical leap ushering in a qualitatively new era of struggle.” Chapman further stated that, “Marx once compared revolutionary struggle with the work of the mole, who sometimes burrows so far beneath the ground that he leaves no trace of his movement on the surface. This is the old revolutionary ‘mole,’ not only showing his traces on the surface but also breaking through. The Communist Party USA backs Obama to the hilt.” It is clear that Obama is their man!

Conclusion

Because of the psychological principal, cognitive dissonance, no amount of direct or circumstantial proof would convince some people that the highest political position in the country has been compromised by a communist plot spanning several decades. The term cognitive dissonance refers to a person who received information so shocking, so upsetting, that they cannot adequately process that information and then instead deny the validity of the proof that anyone else could see. If you are one of the cognitive dissonance types, please allow me to ask you a few questions.

3-5-2015 9-30-34 AM

Who was Obama’s basketball coach in high school? The President has some degree of basketball skills as he defeated former NBA player and sports broadcaster, Clark Kellogg, in a game of pig (how appropriate) in front of a national TV audience. Who was Obama’s history teacher in high school? Why don’t we see interviews with his former professors, teachers, coaches, childhood friends and his first girl friend? Who in the hell is he?

There are no visible answers to these questions are there? But still the cognitive dissonance crowd still persists with their abject denials. To them, I say let’s judge a man by his actions, not his words. Has Obama’s actions served to help or hurt America? Do his Presidential actions match up with his communist background? It is an easy, perhaps, groundless accusation that Obama is truly the manifestation of what Soviet defectors warned us about when these stated that America’s leadership would become compromised and lead America down the path of destruction.

Ask yourself America, how could we collective allow a person with Obama’s very limited political background into the White House? More importantly, how could Obama’s questionable background escape public scrutiny? And the most important question lies in understanding the the answer to this question, “Can anyone clearly demonstrate his intention to bring America down by his own actions?” The answer to this question is unquestionably YES, and this will be covered in Part Four of this series! When we put Obama’s misdeeds side-by-side, it will become easy to see how Obama is deliberately trying to dismantle America prior to entering martial law followed by World War III.

FEMA CAMP IN CHICAGO IT IS TIME TO MAKE A STAND!

March 4th, 2015 by

-to-make-a-stand/ utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_

By  TRUTHER

Countless of brave and selfless reporters risk their lives on a daily basis to bring the public the news on how we are systematically losing our freedoms as we rush headlong into a police state unlike what the world has ever seen. This is a dangerous profession, just ask the families of Hastings, Breitbart and Clancy.

3-4-2015 8-38-20 AM

And what are we all risking our lives for? Are we are risking our lives trying to save people who would rather watch the NFL than stand up to the tyranny that is destroying their country and ultimately their family?

If the reporters from the Guardian and Infowars who uncovered the following information were not risking their lives to bring the public this information, then who would stand at the gate? And what did these brave reporters risk their lives for?

I Do Not Recognize America

America has lost her soul because it has lost Jesus. As a result, America has lost her sense of morality. Our nation has but a few who possess true courage! As a people. we stand for nothing. We accept tyranny as if it is normal and that is the way that it is supposed to be. When CIA rendition camps are exposed in the news, the public does not pay attention as they fast forward the DVR to the weather and the sports. And now that these same camps have come to roost on American soil and are run by local law enforcement, Americans collectively turn the page and pretend it does not matter. Only this time, it is Americans that are being tortured, not foreign terrorists.

What did we Americans think was going to happen when we allowed DHS to militarize the police underProgram 1033? If we allow the Federal government, in the name of the CIA, to torture suspects, how long did we think it is going to be until the militarization of the police would lead to the same thing at the local level? That day has arrived as we have the Gestapo, in the form of local police running concentration camps inside of our cities.

Police Torture Center In Chicago

With regard to law enforcement in Chicago, we are acquiescing in the face of tyranny. We are accepting thuggery and the existence of torture programs which are supported and funded by our locally elected leaders. For those of you that do not think that FEMA camps are real, you may want to pay close attention to the rest of the contents of this article. To those who are blinded by cognitive dissonance, rest assured that we have operational FEMA camps torturing and killing Americans today. The proof resides in the following paragraphs.

In an investigative report, The Guardian boldly alleges that rogue units of the Chicago Police Department maintains a secret interrogation compound in Homan Square. Citizens have accused the Chicago police of having subjected Americans to rendition. Victims are unable to be found by family or attorneys while undergoing enhanced interrogation similar to the CIA.

Take the case of Brian Church. He was not processed and he was shackled to a bench for a day. Nobody knew where he was at and he was not allowed to speak with anyone. However, Brian was luckier than many, he came out alive.

Of course, the police deny all claims. However, if the Chicago police are innocent of the charges, then why did they harass Infowars reporter, Joe Biggs, for attempting to investigate the alleged scene of illegal detention and torture?

In the following two videos, Infowars reporter Joe Biggs, describes  how he was harassed by Chicago undercover police and kicked off of a public sidewalk outside of a secret black torture site in Chicago. If the police have nothing to hide, then they should have opened the doors of this alleged “black site” and allowed Mr. Biggs the right to investigate the allegations with the full cooperation of the police. Secondly, Biggs summarizes his findings with regard to this facility. A tip of the hat to Mr. Biggs and the Infowars team for some very “gutsy” reporting. I just cannot help wondering if this kind of quality reporting isn’t wasted on a soulless nation of sheep who will likely deny the content of the reports because it is easier to stay in denial than it is to actually do something.

Stunning Revelations by Alex Jones

If you fit the definition of a sheep, you may not want to watch this stunning and informative report prepared by Alex Jones and Infowars because the following 13 minute video clip contains court documents which shows that the Chicago PD denies due process, tortures subjects and suspects and prisoners have died while inside of the Homan FEMA camp facility. Alex’s report is not for the faint of heart. Do you realize that, like so many other people in the Independent Media, that Alex Jones and Joe Biggs are risking their lives to bring you this information. America owes them the respect of watching every minute of their report. Then you need to ask yourself why you are not doing anything about this?

The fact that this is out in the open with irrefutable proof, makes it impossible to deny the truth. Gone are the days when the brave colonists at Lexington and Concord would oppose a superior military force. Gone are the days when the defenders of the Alamo fought to the last man in defense of their liberty. Gone are the days when young college students would be dragged off to jail as they were protesting an illegal war in Vietnam.  If Americans do nothing, then they are accomplices to this tyranny. If you are unwilling to stand up to the Chicago PD and all like them, then you may as well as don Swastika armbands because you are a thug through acquiescence. For those of you who are reading these words, have watched the evidence be presented and you continue to do nothing, you are a willing accomplice to torture and murder.

It has always been my policy to not be drawn into posture of advocating violence. But that does not mean that we should not act. And like the Nazis, the KGB and the Stasi, if they start coming to our homes to drag us to these facilities, then the prohibition to violence will be lifted.

The Public Has Options

One does not have to be a man’s man to confront the beginning of the use of the NDAA.  Even a sissy can become an activist. Even the 98 pound weakling has viable alternatives. First, they can unelect all incumbents and subsequently fire the Chicago Police Chief. Secondly. Chicago activists can keep this site under surveillance and videotape all who enter and leave. But if we do not have the guts to stand up to this tyranny, then we can at least protest passively and in a manner that will exact a cost against the thugs running the city of Chicago.

Nationally, the public can boycott Chicago. Yes, that’s right. If you are planning a trip to Chicago cancel your trip. Even a sissy can do that. Even a sissy can write a letter and not travel to Chicago.

Chicago Tourism

I am not proposing that that boycotting Chicago is the final answer to their police department operating a FEMA camp. However, I am pointing out that even the weak in body and mind can do something to oppose this tyranny. Please allow me to provide you with an example.

The public can be outraged all day long. Until the Chicago officials are made to feel the heat, they have no motivation to change. The opportunity to have an impact on Chicago tourism is great. If the traveling public stayed away and made their reasons known, the merchants would be screaming at city government to do something. The public holds all the cards.

Chicago Tourism: 2013 VISITOR VOLUME

The Chicago tourism industry is flourishing and is a mainstay source of support for the people and businesses of Chicago.

Total visitation in 2013 was 48.48 million, an increase of 4.2% over the previous record of 46.51 million, achieved in 2012.

Domestic visitation in 2013 was a record 46.96 million, an increase of 4.4% over 2012 levels.

Overseas visitation for 2013 achieved a record 1.378 million, a gain of 0.7% over 2012 levels.

A plan so simple and risk free that even a sissy can do it. And when someone does something like this, they are no longer a sissy because they have done something.

 Turn’em In

There is one more thing to consider. We have a civic duty to report criminal behavior. To report these despotic actions on the part of the Chicago Police Department, we can all report this gang activity to the following phone number: Gang Hotline Telephone: 312.746.GANG (312.746.4264) ; TTY: 312.746.4276. In other words, you can even put their tyranny back in their face.

This is activism for sissies, yet it could be effective if we made it our mission to punish Chicago for this thuggery. Write one letter, make one phone call and encourage others to boycott Chicago. How hard is that? One doesn’t have to have much courage to do that!

The Price of Apathy

Alex Jones mentioned a quote from Solzhenitsyn that I have used many times to point out the cost of not acting.

3-4-2015 8-36-35 AM

“And how we burned in the camps laterthinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? 

Edmund Burke accurately said “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”.

OBAMA UNVEILS NATIONAL OBAMALAW PLAN

March 3rd, 2015 by

http://dailycaller.com/2015/03/02/obama-unveils-national-obamalaw-plan/

NEIL MUNRO

White House Correspondent

President Barack Obama today introduced his plan for a progressive takeover of state and local policing.

“We have a great opportunity… to really transform how we think about community law enforcement relations,” he said Monday.

“We need to seize that opportunity… this is something that I’m going to stay very focused on in the months to come,” Obama said, as he touted a new interim report from hisTask Force on 21st Century Policing.

Obama also instructed his media allies to help a federalization of policing, and to sideline critics of centralized policing rules. “I expect our friends in the media to really focus on what’s in this report and pay attention to it.”

Obama is using the crisis sparked by the August 2014 shooting of Michael Brown, who was killed after assaulting a shopkeeper and a policeman in Ferguson, Mo. Obama and his deputies stoked the subsequent controversy in the run-up to the 2014 election, in the hope of boosting African-American turnout. The mobilization effort failed, partly because local law-enforcement officials released a video showing Brown’s strong-arm robbery of a store shortly before the fatal shooting.

Now Obama is trying to expand progressive control by attaching more conditions to federal funding of state and local law-enforcement efforts. “We can expand the [federally-funded] COPS program… to see if we can get more incentives for local communities to apply some of the best practices and lessons that are embodied in this report,” he said.

Those best practices likely will eventually include rules that restrict police investigations of groups that are part of the Democratic coalition, and rules that try to level convictions and penalties among various sub-groups of the United Stats, regardless of actual conviction rates.

“I think communities [with police forces] across the board are going to need to consider… recommendations around prohibiting racial profiling [and] that’s a step that we’ve already taken at the federal level,” Obama said.

The report also calls for government to collect more data about state and local policing. That data will help federal officials impose new rules. “We need more information to find out how to take to scale best practices when it comes to training so that police officers are able to work in a way that reduces the possibilities of bias,“ Obama said.

State and local policing may need to be subordinated to federal social policy, Obama suggested. “Our approach to our drug laws, for example, and criminalization of nonviolent offenses rather than taking more of a public health approach — that may be something that has an impact in eroding trust between law enforcement and communities.”

Those political goals are echoed in the tasks force’s interim report.

“Law enforcement agencies should acknowledge the role of policing in past and present injustice and discrimination and how it is a hurdle to the promotion of community trust,” the report says. “The Federal Government, as well as state and local agencies, should encourage and incentivize higher education for law enforcement officers.”

Other recommendations include “Law enforcement agencies should engage community members in the training process…. [government] should ensure that basic recruit and in-service officer training include curriculum on the disease of addiction… Law enforcement agencies should implement training for officers that covers policies for interactions with the LGBTQ population, including issues such as determining gender identity for arrest placement, the Muslim, Arab, and South Asian communities, and immigrant or non-English speaking groups, as well as reinforcing policies for the prevention of sexual misconduct and harassment..”

Obama’s strategy matches the progressive playbook, which continuously expands progressives’ power by gradually adding more conditions to federal aid. That same strategy is implemented in education via the “Common Core” education plan, in the health-sector via Obamacare, in the banking industry via the mortgage rules that caused the damaging property bubble and in housing via Obama’s“regionalism” plan.  

That’s strategically different from prior Democratic administrations, which cited poverty as a justification for expanding federal aid. The unemployment rate for African-Americans in Ferguson is roughly 16 percent.

In his Monday statement, Obama did not mention unemployment.

Obama hinted that his plan to centralize policing rules is likely to face widespread opposition. “Law enforcement is largely a local function as opposed to a federal function…A lot of our work is going to involve local police chiefs, local elected officials, states recognizing that the moment is now for us to make these changes.”

Obama pushed the media to aid his takeover.

“Often we see an event that’s flashy; it makes the news; people are crying out for solutions. And by the time recommendations are put forward, our focus has moved on and we don’t actually see and pay attention to the concrete ways that we can improve the situation,” he said.

“There’s some good answers to be had if we don’t make this a political football or sensationalize it, but rather really focus on getting the job done,” he told the media. “So I appreciate everybody’s efforts. I’m going to be focused on it. I hope you will be, too.”

Mainstream globalist propaganda reveals East/West conflict is a farce (Update 1)

March 2nd, 2015 by

http://redefininggod.com/2014/09/mainstream-

globalist-propaganda-reveals-eastwest-conflict-is-a-farce/

For anyone who might still believe that the US/NATO versus Russia/BRICS geopolitical confrontation is real

here is a little blast from the past

3-2-2015 7-09-15 AM

It is the cover from the January 9, 1988 issue of The Economist magazine. Note the phoenix rising from the ashes of burning national currencies, including the dollar.

The cover relates to an article on pages 9-10 titled Get ready for the phoenix, which foretold the financial drama we are now watching unfold in real time. Upon stumbling across them, I found the cover art and the article so striking that I thought they might be an online forgery, so I verified their authenticity with a research librarian at the Newspaper and Current Periodical Room of the Library of Congress. Both the cover and the article are quite real. Here are some excerpts (not necessarily in the order in which they appear in the article)…

>>> THIRTY years from now, Americans, Japanese, Europeans, and people in many other rich countries, and some relatively poor ones will probably be paying for their shopping with the same currency. Prices will be quoted not in dollars, yen or D-marks but in, let’s say, the phoenix. The phoenix will be favoured by companies and shoppers because it will be more convenient than today’s national currencies, which by then will seem a quaint cause of much disruption to economic life in the last twentieth century…

The phoenix would probably start as a cocktail of national currencies, just as the Special Drawing Right is today. In time, though, its value against national currencies would cease to matter, because people would choose it for its convenience and the stability of its purchasing power

The phoenix zone would impose tight constraints on national governments.There would be no such thing, for instance, as a national monetary policy. The world phoenix supply would be fixed by a new central bank, descended perhaps from the IMF

…Governments are far from ready to subordinate their domestic objectives to the goal of international stability. Several more big exchange-rate upsets, a few more stockmarket crashes and probably a slump or two will be needed before politicians are willing to face squarely up to that choice

Pencil in the phoenix for around 2018, and welcome it when it comes. <<<

It’s all there: the SDR “cocktail” (basket) of currencies, the IMF’s central role, and the need to create “exchange rate upsets, stockmarket crashes, and economic slumps” to make the public accept it. Seeing such an accurate forecast/blueprint, one wonders who was behind its publishing. So if we look into The Economistmagazine, we find it is headquartered just a few blocks from the City of London and is owned by The Economist Group, which itself is owned by some rather interesting characters…

“The Economist Group is 50% owned by Pearson PLC via The Financial Times Limited. The bulk of the remaining shares are held by individual shareholders including theCadbury, Rothschild, Schroder, Agnelli and other family interests as well as a number of staff and former staff shareholders.”

Beyond the Rothschild and Agnelli families, who are widely rumored to be part of the Illuminati, the Schroder family is particularly worth noting. The Schroders(also spelled Schroeder) are an old German ruling class family from Hamburg. One of the Schroder brood, Johann Heinrich Schroder, settled in London and founded J. Henry Schroder & Co. (now known simply as “Schroders,” one of the UKs largest investment banks) back in 1818. Later, in 1923, the firm expanded into New York by establishing J. Henry Schroder Banking Corporation. It is here that they joined with the Rockefeller family through Avery Rockefeller.

According to Avery’s bio…

“In 1928, Rockefeller joined the storied J. Henry Schroder Banking Corporation and became Assistant Treasurer in 1931. On 8 July 1936, Rockefeller co-founded Schroder, Rockefeller & Co., Inc. Its purpose was to take over the underwriting and general securities business formerly carried out by the J. Henry Schroder Banking Corporation.”

Schroder, Rockefeller & Co. is widely viewed as having been an integral part of the globalist bankers’ financial support infrastructure for the Nazis. And another of the Schroders, Johann Heinrich’s great-grandsonBaron Kurt von Schroeder(shown here in his Nuremberg picture)…

…played a pivotal role..

“Schroeder was an important member of the Freundeskreis der Wirtschaft, which provided Adolf Hitler and his party with enough financial support to survive through the early 1930s. He also hosted a critical meeting on 4 January 1933 between Papen and Hitler that eventually led to Hitler’s appointment as Chancellor of Germany.”

The Nazis had (and continue to have) deep ties to the Anglo-American banking establishment, and also to The Economist. So this article came from a publication connected to the supposed “Nazi/Zionist Cabal.” Keep this in mind as we take a look at what that Cabal’s supposed enemies, the Chinese, are saying about the currently-unfolding global financial drama.

The Blueprint Revealed

I recently ran across a China Daily article titled Bracing for next big financial crisis, written by Giles Chance (a former World Bank staffer who is a professor at the Guanghua School of Management at Peking University). I strongly recommend following the link and reading the entire article, because it succinctly lays out the globalist plans and talking points for the next economic crisis. Once you correct for the article’s spin, it tells you everything. Here are some select passages, with my commentary added in brackets…

>>> Above the central banks, including the PBOC [People’s Bank of China], stands the Bank of International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, which oversees the activities of national banking and monetary systems. The integration of markets and economies in a globalized world has given the BIS an increasingly important role in providing global financial stability… <<<

[So here we have a Chinese propaganda organ telling us that the BIS is in charge of all the central banks, including China’s. This is in spite of the fact that the BIS was a joint creation of the London bankers and the Nazis (who are supposedly the bad guys the BRICS are fighting). I will share more about the BIS later in the article.]

>>> In 2007, the year before the financial crash, the BIS warned that the global financial system was becoming overstretched and that the banking systems in the developed world were coming under pressure. But although the BIS has great influence, it does not have the power to compel any central bank. It can advise and warn, but it cannot give orders, and it does not issue its own money. As we know, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the European Central Bank in Brussels did not act on the well-timed warning from the BIS. <<<

[This passage establishes the BIS’s wisdom and foresight, as opposed to the foolishness of the national central banks. It also carries the implication that the BIS should be given the power to compel the national central banks to follow its wise guidance. Not mentioned is the fact that the financial crash was deliberately triggered by the very bankers he’s writing about, and that the foolishness of the national central banks’ responses was quite calculated. It allowed the banksters to harvest enormous wealth from the public and set up the pretext for the global institutions to step in and “provide stability.”]

>>> Against that background, you would expect today that if the BIS issued another warning, the world would pay attention. At the end of June, BIS General Manager Jaime Caruana gave a speech at its headquarters that contained a strong note of caution: “A new policy compass is needed to help the global economy step out of the shadow of the global financial crisis…” <<<

[By  “a new policy compass,” he means a transition from the current dollar-based global financial system to the new, more centralized SDR-based multipolar/multilateral financial system]

>>> In his speech, Caruana blamed the continued dependence by the advanced economies, led by the United States, on ultra-loose monetary policy in place of the necessary deep-seated structural changes. <<<

[Here, he’s setting up the Federal Reserve (and the EU and Japan) to take the blame.]

>>> Caruana’s warning was reinforced by William White, head of the Economic Review and Development Committee at the headquarters of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development in Paris. As one of the very few experts who accurately forecast the 2008 crash, while head of research at the BIS, White is listened to with respect around the world.

In a recent interview, he said: “Riskfree bond rates are at enormously low levels, spreads are very low … it all looks and feels like 2007. And frankly, I think it’s worse than 2007…” <<<

[Here, another “wise” person from the BIS is warning that we’re approaching another financial crisis (that he and his buddies are engineering). It’s pretty easy to be a forecaster when you’re in on the plan. So if this year looks and feels like 2007, will next year be the next 2008?]

>>> But the US Federal Reserve Bank, the controller of the dollar-based global economy, does not agree with the BIS or William White. Several days after Caruana’s speech, Fed Governor Janet Yellen made it clear that she does not think thatextremely low interest rates were the main culprit in the 2008 financial crisis, nor constitute the main problem now. <<<

[This is a very instructive passage. Note how the author specifically mentions the “dollar-based global economy.” Also note how he again paints the Federal Reserve as the morons who won’t listen to the sage globalists at the BIS. In this, he is setting up Janet Yellen for her upcoming scapegoat role, and he is tying interest rates to what will bring her down. The author says all this while failing to disclose that Janet Yellen is a member of the Board of Directors of the BIS, as is PBOC governor Zhou Xiaochuan]

>>> The disagreement between these two powerful financial institutions, the BIS and the New York Federal Reserve, has increased the risk that markets will crash as interest rates rise. Can China’s stability withstand another financial crash? Or would China emerge stronger? <<<

[Bingo! Here we are shown the trigger for the next financial crisis: Yellen will raise interest rates either “too soon” or by “too much” and crash the markets. “If only the wise BIS had had the power to rein in the Fed’s foolishness sooner, we could have avoided this,” they’ll say.  Now let’s read on and see if China will emerge stronger.]

>>> China certainly has economic problems… But the forward-looking, courageous determination of its government to grasp some important nettles in its economic reform program will make it a key part of any solution to another Western financial crisis. <<<

[Here, the author does the requisite ass-kissing to his Chinese hosts, then boldly states that China will be “a key part of any solution to another Western financial crisis.” Solution, as in problem – reaction – solution. And the article has already shown us who caused the problem part of the equation: the unruly Western central banks, especially the Fed.]

>>> With the BIS and the US Federal Reserve Bank on opposite sides of the fence about global financial stability, the likelihood of another global financial crisis grows. But next time would indeed be different, because Western taxpayers would refuse to pay for another huge bank bailout, as they did in 2008-09. <<<

[So again, in case you missed it: BIS = good = wise = solution and US Federal Reserve Bank = bad = problem = another global financial crisis.]

>>> The emerging world, led by China, is economically in a much stronger position relative to the advanced countries than six years ago. Although in 2009 China may not have expected its sudden promotion to world power status, the country’s emergence since the crash as a global pillar of growth has significantly increased its global influence. <<<

[China didn’t expect its promotion to world power status? Au contraire, they knew it was coming because the globalists promised it to them, just like they promised what comes next…]

>>> Another crash on Wall Street would reinforce the attraction of the renminbi as a store of value and anchor of stability for other regional currencies

It would underpin China’s global appeal as a peaceful force for stability in a volatile and troubled world, and hasten the re-engineering of shareholding in the major organizations of global governance, particularly at the World Bank and the IMF. Prepared or not, in the event of another crash China would find itself in a position of even greater global leadership and responsibility than today. <<<

[So here we are told that the next crash will be China’s gateway to top dog status, and it will “hasten the re-engineering of shareholding in the major organizations of global governance, particularly at the World Bank and the IMF.” This is exactly what I’ve been warning about. When the next crash comes, watch them break out their gold and other commodities to underwrite the global financial system in exchange for the governance changes.]

Now that we are done de-spinning the article, there are two things it brings up that deserve to be examined: the BIS and the Fed’s raising of interest rates…

The Bank for International Settlements (BIS)

This is the cover art for the BIS Archive Guide

…It proudly features Montagu Norman (the Bank of England Governor from 1920-1944, circled in pink) and Hjalmar Schacht (the President of the Reichsbank from 1923-31 and 1933-39, and Hitler’s Economics Minister from 1934 – 1937, circled in red). You’ll hear more about these two a little later in the article. But first, let’s have a look at a little piece of BIS history

>>> Between 1933 and 1945 the BIS board of directors included Walther Funk, a prominent Nazi official, and Emil Puhl, who were both convicted of war crimes at the Nuremberg trials after World War II, as well as Hermann Schmitz, the director of IG Farben, and Baron [Kurt] von Schroeder, the owner of the J.H.Stein Bank, which held the deposits of the Gestapo. There were allegations that the BIS had helped the Germans loot assets from occupied countries during World War II.

As a result of these allegations, at the Bretton Woods Conference held in July 1944, Norway proposed the “liquidation of the Bank for International Settlements at the earliest possible moment”. This resulted in the BIS being the subject of a disagreement between the American and British delegations. The liquidation of the bank was supported by other European delegates, as well as the United States (including Harry Dexter White, Secretary of the Treasury, and Henry Morgenthau), but opposed by John Maynard Keynes, head of the British delegation.

Fearing that the BIS would be dissolved by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Keynes went to Morgenthau hoping to prevent the dissolution, or have it postponed, but the next day the dissolution of the BIS was approved. However, the liquidation of the bank was never actually undertaken. In April 1945, the new U.S. president Harry S. Truman and the British government suspended the dissolution, and the decision to liquidate the BIS was officially reversed in 1948. <<<

So why were the British bankers so opposed to shutting down a bank with strong Nazi ties, you ask? Well, have a look at this UK Telegraph article (use this Internet Archive link if the direct link isn’t working)…

3-2-2015 7-17-17 AM

I recommend reading the whole article, as it contains more juicy information than I can include in this post. Here are the most relevant excerpts for the topic at hand (with my comments in brackets)…

>>> The BIS was founded in 1930, in effect by Montagu Norman and his close friend Hjalmar Schacht, the former president of the Reichsbank, known as the father of the Nazi economic miracle. Schacht even referred to the BIS as “my” bank. The BIS is a unique hybrid: a commercial bank protected by international treaty. Its assets can never be seized, even in times of war. It pays no taxes on profits…

A key sentence in the Bank of England documents is found on page 1,295. It reads:“The general attitude of the Bank of England directors of the BIS during the war was governed by their anxiety to keep the BIS to play its part in the solution of post-war problems” [the bankers created the problem (World War 2), and they used the BIS to institute their solution (more centralized control of the world’s financial systems)]

…And here the secret history of the BIS and its strong relationship with the Bank of England becomes ever more murky.

During the war the BIS proclaimed that it was neutral, a view supported by the Bank of England. In fact the BIS was so entwined with the Nazi economy that it helped keep the Third Reich in business. It carried out foreign exchange deals for the Reichsbank; it accepted looted Nazi gold; it recognised the puppet regimes installed in occupied countries, which, together with the Third Reich, soon controlled the majority of the bank’s shares.

Indeed, the BIS was so useful for the Nazis that Emil Puhl, the vice-president of the Reichsbank and BIS director, referred to the BIS as the Reichsbank’s only “foreign branch”…

Every other month it hosts the Global Economy Meetings, where 60 of the most powerful central bankers, including Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England, meet. No details of meetings are released, even though the attendees are public servants, charged with managing national economies.

The BIS also hosts the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, which regulates commercial banks, and the new Financial Stability Board, which coordinates national regulatory authorities. The BIS has made itself the central pillar of the global financial system. <<<

Speaking of these Global Economy Meetings, guess who attends them? According to the BIS website

“The GEM comprises the Governors of 30 BIS member central banks in major advanced and emerging market economies that account for about four fifths of global GDP. The members of the GEM are the central bank Governors from Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong SAR, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey, the United Kingdom and the United States and also the President of the European Central Bank and the President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Governors from several other central banks attend the GEM as observers.”

So as you can see, beyond the public theater offered in Ukraine and the Middle East, and beyond all the East versus West propaganda offered in the mainstream and alternative media, China and the BRICS are dancing to the tune of the BIS puppetmasters just like everyone else. There is NO CONFLICT between “Nazi/Zionist” transatlantic bankers and BRICS bankers. In fact, Chinese and Russian banks (along with everyone else) are in the process of implementing the Basel 3 bank reforms put out by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, which is hosted by the BIS.

According to this China Daily article

Under China’s implementation of Basel III guidelines, systemically important banks need a minimum Tier 1 capital ratio of 9.5 percent, with total buffers of 11.5 percent, before the end of 2018.”

…and according to this Russia Today article

Basel III – a new set of global banking standards scheduled to come into force in Russia this year – should become another stimulus for the country’s lenders to rely on its own funds rather than State support. One of the key Basel III requirements is tighter rules for a banks’ own capital.”

The whole East versus West propaganda campaign is aimed at giving the hypnotized public a fairytale storyline for all the changes they’re going through. It also offers them scapegoats on whom they can pin all their problems. The international bankers are going to crash the current system and blame it on the Federal Reserve, then they’re going to introduce the BRICS as the heroes who save the day.

In fact, part of the purpose for the recent creation of the BRICS Bank is to give the BRICS a lifeboat while the West founders from the crash. The BRICS Contingent Reserve Arrangement

“is a framework for the provision of support through liquidity and precautionary instruments in response to actual or potential short-term balance of payments pressures.

The objective of this reserve is to provide protection against global liquidity pressures. This includes currency issues where members’ national currencies are being adversely affected by global financial pressures.

The Bank would also provide assistance to other countries suffering from the economic volatility in the wake of the United States’ exit from its expansionary monetary policy.

All this being said, when will the crash begin, and how long will it last? Given that the last crash lasted from 2007-2009 and contained a shocking “Lehman Moment,” it stands to reason that the next crash would also be a slow-motion train wreck with an even more shocking Lehman Moment. If the propaganda setup for the collapse is any indicator, the train wreck and New Lehman Moment will involve the raising of the Fed interest rate by Janet Yellen and perhaps a black swan event like a false-flag cyberattack or terrorist attack.

Looking at the interest rate component, the Fed will be meeting this Tuesday and Wednesday (September 16-17), and that could give us an indication of when things might kick off. The general consensus of the Fed watchers seems to be that interest rates will go up starting in the summer of 2015, with some estimates saying as early as March 2015. Will this start the train wreck? And since the BRICS bank isn’t scheduled to start lending until 2016, the New Lehman might not happen till then. But then again, they can always surprise us.
