The Coming Terror and A Power to Change the World

The year 2013 is going to bring unprecedented social anarchy, riots, food shortages, more mass shootings, political upheaval, economic crisis and a radical transformation of our nation. As the late Dr. Francis Schaeffer said, about thirty years ago, “An authoritarian government either from the right or left will rise to manage the chaos.”

Most of what we are seeing now fits the precise historical patterns of what happen in places like Nazi Germany, where Adolph Hitler murdered over seven million people in concentration camps. The German Jews, as well as the Christians were in such a state of psychological denial, that they repeatedly said, “It can’t happen here.” When they walking into the gas chambers, they insisted they were just getting a shower.

What is it that prevents people from seeing the obvious either on a personal level or a national level? There are a number of factors in this psychological process. First, self-deception and cognitive dissonance. A mother cannot bear the thought of her little daughter being molested by her husband, so she pretends not to notice the evidence. Finally she disassociates from the reality.
On a national level, many times the people, especially the youth, have been deliberately dumbed down through social engineering. They simply do not understand the historical patterns and how they repeat themselves. In addition, through social engineering they have been brainwashed into accepting a system of reality, rather than reality itself.

Finally, the science of mass mind control is used to program the people, through the media, entertainment, legal drugs, pornography, education and entertainment. Aldous Huxley, H.G.Wells and Thomas Pynchon and others wrote about this in their books like, The Shape of Things to ComeBrave New World, and Gravity’s Rainbow. The science of mass mind control came from Nimrod and the ancient occult religions of Babylon. They operated both spiritually and scientifically. Today scientific and spiritual mind control are so advanced that the average person does not know that they exist, let alone how advanced they have become. In America today the vast percentage of the population is under scientific mind control, where they have been programmed and live in a trance state. This is one of the primary reasons that they cannot see the obvious; they have been scientifically brainwashed. In addition to that, they live in denial and cognitive dissonance.

A key element in the science of occult-based mind control (all mind control is occult-based) is trauma-based programming. The mind is controlled through a series of traumatic shocks viewed on television or the Internet, experienced in the sociological environment, or through highly advanced technologies like EMF waves, subliminal programming, silent sound, microchip implants, drugs and mass occult rituals along with occult symbolism. Recent examples of this would be the Olympic Ceremony in Great Britain, which enacted a Satanic ritual, disguised as entertainment, with blatant Luciferian symbols that go back to Babylon. A large percentage of rock’n’roll concerts and performers perform occult rituals along with mind control. The Illuminati symbolism is blatant if you understand the meaning of the symbols.

Modern rock’n’roll concerts are simply mass occult worship. The ancient occult worship of occult gods like Molech consisted of the use of mind-altering drugs, hypnotic rhythms in the music, and sexual immorality, which were designed to summon their gods or various entities. Everything we just discussed not only programs people through occult-based programming, but acts as a powerful mechanism for mass mind control. Since the fundamental consciousness of people has been altered, they live in hypnotic and trance states, doing what they have been conditioned to do.

In addition, all of this produces spiritual deception through false messiahs and false teachers, which the Apostle Paul warned about when he referred to the Great Delusion and the Apostasy in the last days. According to the Biblical view, the world is quickly heading towards a one world government, a one world economic system, and a one world religion that is headed up by two beasts, the Antichrist and the False Prophet.

It is not an accident that Sir Francis Bacon, a Rosicrucian, planned for America to be the center of a new world order and a “New Atlantis” before America was settled. The Rosicrucian occult movement has its roots in the occult religions of ancient Babylon. The Rosicrucians became the Illuminati and it is the Illuminati who are the Satanic elite who rule the world. As I have said in numerous articles, the Illuminati pyramid on the back of the U.S. dollar is a template or occult blueprint for what is coming soon. The eagle which is really the occult bird, the Phoenix, is a symbol of the new world order rising from the ashes of chaos. The Illuminati slogan is, “Order Out of Chaos.” The rock’n’roll band, Led Zepellin, sang their famous lyrics, “Is the new world rising, from the shambles of the old?”

All of the chaos we see in our society is essentially manufactured. It is designed to lead us into the new world order. The dollar is deliberately being devalued in order to bring in a new world currency called the “Phoenix.” The occult-based elite hope to do this by 2018.

So the question is after reading this, “What can you do about it?” The person under mind control automatically says, “nothing.” But the spirit that God placed in man and the Spirit of God itself says “All things are possible.” God knew before the beginning of time about the chaos that is happening now. He downloaded into the human consciousness everything that is needed to overcome the spiritual darkness. God knew before the beginning of time that you would be here for such a time as this.

That means you came into this world to fulfill a purpose and that purpose is not to be a slave in the occult-pyramid system. In addition you must know that He has given you the opportunity to use Hispower to overcome evil. When that power is accessed by belief you then become a carrier of an energy force that is more powerful than anything in the Universe. What is called the First Great Awakening, tapped into that power and transformed America at its birth.

A Third Great Awakening is a release of cosmic energy from another dimension where the Personal God rules. Through belief and turning to Him as the Source, men and women can call down supernaturalpower from this dimension or invisible realm. In our nation today, it is scientifically possible to release what is called the dunamis, from which we get our word dynamite. When this all-powerful explosive force is released in the invisible realm, it sends a shockwave of power so strong, that entities called thekosmokratos are overwhelmed. Therefore it is possible to enter 2013, not as a victim, but as a conqueror. The choice is yours.

Jim Willie: The Coming Isolation of the U. S. Dollar

December 29th, 2012 by

Jim Willie is always at the top of my list of important reads.  This one is exceptionally good and discusses what appears to be the new flow of the tides of fortune.  I believe the U.S. dollar is being isolated – and I believe it’s one thing the egos of the high and mighty just can’t bring themselves to perceive and, thus, prepare for it.  This is one of Willie’s best columns, in my opinion.  Marilyn Barnewall

 

Jim Willie: The Coming Isolation of the USDollar

December 27, 2012 By The Doc

By Jim WillieGoldenJackass.com

The typical human reaction to any infection, vermin, danger, or toxicity is to stand back, to isolate the agent, to trap it, to prevent its further spread or release, then to remove it in a safe secure way if possible using trained professionals. Eventually decisions must be made on the level of acceptable risk on the removal, like what is willing to be lost or damaged or killed in the process. Risk analysis, cost trade-offs, and minimization decisions must be evaluated and executed. The toxic agent in global trade, global banking, and global bond market is the USDollar. In 2009, the Jackass began making a certain firm point. Those nations that depart from the entire USDollar system early will be the leading nations in the next chapter, with stronger foundations, richer solvency, emerging economies, healthier financial markets, efficient credit engines, growing wealth, stronger political helm activity, and better functioning systems generally. Imagine a contaminated blood system that infects, corrupts, and destroys all interior organs from the spread of the toxin. Those nations that stick with the crumbling USDollar system stubbornly will find a horrible fate with devastating effects, rampant economic damage, broken financial markets, sputtering credit engines, tremendous loss of wealth, wrecked supply lines, poverty spreading like wildfire, ruined political structures, social disorder, isolation from the rest of the world, and a fast ticket to the Third World. That is EXACTLY what is happening in the last several months. A division has begun, as the East has been busily installing the next generation platforms, as related to trade, banking, and commercial integration.

2013 Silver Eagles As Low as $2.59 Over Spot at SDBullion!

NEW ASIAN TRADE ZONE

The division between East and West actually accelerated when the extremely ill-advised decision for Iran sanctions was made by an increasingly desperate United States Govt and its handler on the Southern Med. The division continues, matures, and develops with each passing month. It has become a story, as the Eurasia trade zone concept has been born. It has a long way to go, but Asia however has made great strides lately in unifying commerce. The climax event of the Asian trade zone conference held in Vietnam could not have been more important, as they rejected the US-led plan. The Asians partners and players even rejected the United States from the entire Asian trade zone, but did include Australia and New Zealand. The incredibly stupid naive US-led plan, the Trans-Pacific Partnership, attempted to create a trade zone with Asia which would have blocked China. Imagine the incredibly obtuse blockheaded maneuver of trying to have all of Asia not conduct facilitated trade with China, its leading trade partner. Talk about shooting both legs and genital region with a double barreled shotgun! This is the signal flare of US political stupidity that has turned highly destructive for the USEconomy and its people. Such failed leadership and counter-productive initiatives will push the US into the Third World even faster than previously thought possible. The isolation is firming quickly. Most of Asia does not wish for strong trade ties with the United States, most likely since they do not see mutual benefit. They see a ravaging appetite to grab capital.

 

A Paradigm Shift is taking place, and the ASEAN-China summit gave proof positive in a seminal event of the vast changes in progress. The United States just suffered its worst humiliation ever as a nation on the Eastern global stage. It was exceeded only by the humiliation for a US president personally. The story went uncovered by the lapdog inept US press. The late November Asian summit meeting held in Phnom Penh included 15 Asian nations, which represent half the world’s population. They decided to form a Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership that excludes the United States. The Asians are pushing to isolate the United States. Regard it as punishment for hegemony, or a reaction to prevent further capital drainage, or to protect from central bank abuse, or to wall off continued bond fraud export, or to defend against military aggression. Regard it as confirmation that China is the regional leader in Asia, even for military security. Regard it as a response to banker criminality, or simply for being totally full to the brim of American corruption and arrogance and abuse of position, led by creation of the USDollar as an elaborate weapon and credit card whose balance is never to be repaid. Abuse of power and sponsored financial corruption will have extreme consequences in the reshaping of global commerce and banking. The US will be isolated, so as to protect the rest of the world from its fascist exhibitions and deep manifestations.

 

FLUSHED NATION

The shift is in progress, and the American people have no idea what is happening. They are too pre-occupied by the agency torture of the population, urgently needed to remove guns and to create the police state. Current events are heinous and genocide on large scale and small scale. Any comments will be limited on the orchestrated travesty, travails, and tragedy. They all have one traceable element, which connects to a certain Virginia suburb where an intelligent pillbox operates in the shadows with puppet strings to the press networks and maybe Hollywood. The security agencies turned to the dark side years ago, with full devotion to narcotics, money laundering, and collusion with the castle dwellers. When the Praetorian Guard plots to bring about a police state, the only words that come to mind are disaster, disorder, mayhem, betrayal, degradation, death. Their tools are psychotropic drugs, violent training, weather altering devices, and basic sabotage. Treason is the calling card unfortunately for much of the US leadership class, whether banking, politics, economics, pharmaceuticals, or news networks. Think Syndicate, as my work has described for several years. The United States with its harsh new visa policies, molestation at airports, heavily defended borders, sponsored gun running, has shown a vicious visible visceral fascist streak that has begun to bring memories of the national socialists of Central Europe 70 and 80 years ago. They are back, stronger than ever, not having been eliminated. They were instead assimilated within the banking and security organizations, able to plant seeds which germinated with the sons in offspring. Two sons became presidents.

 

DEUTSCHE MARK GONE

In the 1960 and 1970 and even 1980 decades, the favorite currencies off the standardized tables of commerce were the USDollar and DeutscheMark. At one time in the Soviet Union and the Soviet Bloc of Eastern Europe, more USDollars and DMarks were in circulation than official Russian Rubles or Polish Zlotys or Hungarian Forints or whatever. Those years are long gone, as in long gone, all paper alternatives lousy. Under a strange bizarre compromise arranged to assimilate East Germany and to conceal the French sovereign debt, the Euro Monetary Union and the common Euro currency was born. It is now in the process of disintegrating. So the powerfully strong and stable German DMark went away. Back in those decades, only limited travel was done by the Jackass, confined to a honeymoon in France and Switzerland with a cold woman no longer inflicting her plague-like touch in my life. The Jackass deals exclusively in Latin currency of paper and human variety. No exposure to alternative currency held under the table was discovered in beach locations to the south or modest hotels in the green hills to the north. But friends reported stories. My older brother spent two months in Germany and Czechoslavakia, with ample stories of hoarded USDollars and DMarks. Store owners and wise families were eager to obtain USD and DM currency, even young kids. He and some ambitious friends heard stories of vast black market activity in Russia, where the US$100 bill was a favorite. In that era, Gold was not an item of pursuit or stored wealth. Times have changed radically, and Gold is the new store of value.

 

Times have changed with the sunset of the DMark and the toxicity of the USDollar. The people, the shop keepers, the business men, the small financial firms, they all have been turned upside down in recent years as they struggle to find a safe place to store wealth. Money has been corrupted. The purveyors of money have lost control by accelerating its supply by central banks, lost control of bank solvency, lost control of anything remotely acting like an honest tether to money itself. As a result, all those people, the shop keepers, the business men, the small financial firms, have been discovering Gold & Silver bars and coins. Their combined actions have resulted in an implicit isolation of the USDollar, even an isolation of the Southern European sovereign debt. Swiss havens have grown, in parallel with Gold havens. The toxic monetary plague has been identified, and its toxic sources too. They are the US Federal Reserve and the Euro Central Bank. They are ruining money, undermining wealth, and destabilizing the entire world related to wealth, banking, commerce, and economies. The armies of people, the shop keepers, the business men, the small financial firms, are working to isolate the USDollar as toxic agent in a demonstration of survival.

 

FREEDOM FROM DELUSION

Many bright people within the gold community cling to hope, harbor delusions, and maintain expectations, none of which have much value in the fast changing world of fascist entanglement and full integration. The Jackass has operated without delusions, firmly in belief that the corrupt systems would flourish. That viewpoint and operating principle has proved to be correct since 2004 when the Hat Trick Letter began to spout deeply disturbing forecasts. One after the other, most of the forecasts have indeed occurred, to the detriment of the nation and its systems and its society at large. No pleasure has come from forecasting a wrecked housing market (burdened by lax underwriting and bond fraud) or a broken insolvent banking system (from bond losses and dependent upon money laundering) or a desperate chronically USGovt budget (dragged down by adopted socialism and sacred war costs) or a spreading Southern European bond crisis (addressed only by higher subordinated toxic paper).

 

No pleasure is taken from seeing vast legions of struggling Americans, including a few close friends, who have lost jobs, lost homes, lost savings, lost pensions, and lost a valuable sense of security, as they continue to hang on. Many might actually find the warmth of the official camps, only to disappear later on. Argentina and Chile had their desaparecidos, and so will the United States. My ugly expectation is that before their bodies are incinerated, vital organs will be extracted for black market gains. Inoculations upon entry will assure them of good health and fully functioning organs. Later, vaccines will infect them, just like with the swine flu vaccine. By the way, in Costa Rica a brief story to enlighten on vaccines. In early 2008, the Jackass advised a couple families with numerous children and cousins in school to reject the swine flu vaccine that was promoted by the school authorities at the urging of US officials. They took my advice after their confidence was won on several other matters. Only one of about 20 children took the vaccine. She has been sick with a mysterious cerebral disease for over two years. My mention of searching for Guillain Barre symptoms has not helped. The mothers are grateful, as they did not understand at first my emotional outburst to discourage following the school advice. The official US camps will involve forced vaccines. Later on, false stories will be promulgated that the dead bodies were the result of already sick people entering the camps for quarantine purposes. In reality, the people would only have suffered from hunger and exposure and despair.

 

Hope is not part of my forecasts, but rather the reality of the corrupt human power game mindset. The US banking, economic, and political leaders can easily be expected to continue their corrupt games, with easy forward calls. No expectation of USGovt regulatory agencies is part of my forecasts, but rather the reality of their nearly perfect track record of big bank loyalty and fraud protection. The US regulators can easily be expected to continue their corrupt games, with easy forward calls. Clinging to precious metals mining stocks is not part of my forecasts, a decision made back in early 2008. They are bound in paper wealth, subject to inflation in share dilution just like the USDollar, vulnerable to jurisdictional confiscations, and at the mercy of labor unions whose production is increasingly halted. Unfortunately, too many fine people within the gold community, including GATA, hold firm on hope, regulators, and mining stocks. Not here! The major financial networks rely upon advertisement revenue from Wall Street, fund managers, an market exchanges. GATA has a business model that has one key vulnerability, with strong links to the mining firms. It has tainted their viewpoint sadly. My support of GATA is firm on challenge of USDollar legitimacy before the Supreme Court, on challenge of US regulators to enforce the law, on challenge of the big banks to prove their solvency, on challenge of the central bank to reveal their activity. But the Jackass does not expect the Supreme Court to ever rule the USDollar as illegal, nor the US regulators to ever enforce the law, nor the big banks to ever remove themselves from corruption, nor the central bank to ever conduct business in opposition to the biggest banks under supranational orders.

 

My personal background has taught me well that a corrupt system never corrects itself. Instead, it spins out of control with broken platforms, layered mechanisms to impose its servitude and influence, complete with side projects to illicitly support itself. See the theft of Iraq gold and theft of Libyan gold. Their people will never again see that wealth. The US system will remain broken until it collapses, never to be corrected until after its collapse.

 

The Jackass does not align with the expectation of mining stock rise. The stocks are paper wealth in a new era of paper wealth implosion, during which inflation of shares through dilution is rampant. My full expectation is for physical metal prices for Gold & Silver to rise, while mining stocks continue to fall in value from dilution and reduced metal output. The leverage is a mirage when large deposits are seized by desperate foreign governments in need of income. What on earth is complicated about understanding this point?? The leverage is a mirage when workers are the focal breakdown point for a higher cost of living. If workers cannot afford to feed their families and survive, mine output will suffer. What on earth is complicated about understanding this point?? The leverage is a mirage when rising mine operation costs must be handled, by the simple practice of share dilution. Combine with regular executive stock options, and the dilution on stock shares is huge. What on earth is complicated about understanding this point??

 

POWERFUL CORRUPTION INERTIA

Corruption Inertia is a principle firmly believed in when Jackass forecasts must be made. The corruption will continue with firm immutable momentum, without an external force acting as agent of change. At times, this is simple science. When colleagues introduce hope and what must be, the OFF button is engaged quickly here in my office. Their views are out of touch with reality. Corruption will persist as long as the Syndicate continues to hold power. It will remain the constant while the USDept Justice remains, while the USDept Treasury remains, while the US Regulators remain, even while the US debt rating agencies remain. They all support the current system. They are all subject to momentum pressures. Only an external force will result in change. When the USDollar is further isolated, that change will come. To expect change from the inside due to internal forces is lunatic, kind of like expecting an alcoholic to change on his own from an awakening. Al Capone was removed not from inside the Chicago crime boss conference of dons. He was brought down by external forces related to income tax. The world will similarly reject the USDollar for its tax on the system, unwanted, discarded as a toxic agent.

 

PROTECTION FROM THREAT TO WEALTH

Again, delusion works well when fashioning a creepy little shell of existence to protect oneself from the psychological damage of a predatory government syndicate or security agency apparatus. The Jackass mocks such defense mechanisms, since a guarantee for poverty and misery. The vast legions of Americans will soon awaken to find their jobs are hanging by threads, their wealth either vanished or converted to USTreasury Bonds by force, their liberties long gone, and their ability to seek out foreign lands for residence curtailed. In fact, one nation after another is actually banning acceptance of Americans for bank accounts. See Switzerland, Panama, and Hong Kong. The US subjects are seen as persona non grata not for their own characteristics, but for the passport they hold from the United States. The USGovt as lord acts like syndicate bullies, agents to abuse embassy privileges, with imposed extra legal paperwork like an extra burden. The isolation is not only of the United States, but of its citizens, whose business is not desired. Hence the Americans will increasingly be trapped in the US along with their money. The Jackass response to threat is not to embrace delusion, and not to seek a blanket to cover my head in the basement quarters. Instead, the response has been to head for the hills with pockets filled.

 

People, both clients and colleague, inquire when the Gold price will rise with vigor, when the mining stocks will rise with gusto. They remind that with all the central bank debasement of currency from Zero Interest Rate Policy and Quantitative Easing, the ultra-cheap, artificially cheap, desperate cheap money to finance USGovt debt should make the Gold price zoom upwards with each QE official announcement. My answer is quite simple. Each new QE program gives the dark forces more motivation to slam the gold price with naked shorts in sale of paper gold and paper silver. To be sure, the true value of Gold and the true value of Silver is higher, but it is not reflected in the COMEX price. That market is the epitome of corruption. If they were in charge of measuring fevers, they would place the thermometers on ice. Instead, a vast divergence comes between the paper Gold price and metal Gold price. Unless and until the Gold market is freed from corruption and freed from the shackles of Wall Street and London and Swiss influence, it will continue to be suppressed. My full expectation is not for the system to correct itself from within. Instead, the COMEX seeks out new sources of supply, like the GLD Exchange Traded Fund. It is probably far more gutted than publicly stated. It has been converted into a bullion bank central repository for easy raided inventory. The Gold price will not rise from internal forces to push up value, in response to central bank monetary policy or shortage of COMEX inventory. The Gold price will rise from external forces in USDollar isolation, along with isolation of the big banks in the US and London. Their gold inventory will be removed, returned, and drained. In time, the USDollar will widely be rejected in trade.

 

THE NEW ISOLATION HAS BEGUN

The process of isolation is not just now beginning. It is a process well along. In fact, it has been told that immediately following the Lehman Brothers death (a deliberate exploited execution) and the adoption of toxic vats by the USGovt in the form of Fannie Mae and AIG, the major foreign players located primarily in the East began to feverishly prepare for new platforms on trade and banking. They sought to develop an alternative. For the last 20 to 25 years, a backwards principal has been at work. It dictated that the USDollar would prevail in reserves management, actually the USTBond as vehicle. The rules for trade surplus recycle were constructed to lean toward usage of the USTBonds. Therefore, the global trade would be dominated by USDollars. In other words, banking would dictate trade settlement. That is backwards, and keenly exhibits the brute force of the USDollar hegemony. Also the crude oil payments have been standardized in USDollars, ever since the Saudis cut a major deal with the USGovt and UKGovt in the mid-1970 decade after the famous embargo. Protection came to the Saudi regime and Persian Gulf emirates, in return for exclusive USDollar payment on trade for oil. The Petro-Dollar defacto standard is the primary plank behind the USDollar global trade patterns shown for over three decades. It is coming to an end, a sunset.

 

IRAN SEMINAL EVENT

The Iranian sanctions put forth by the USGovt and adopted by the EuroZone nations have contributed more to unwinding the USDollar trade system than any event in decades. It sounded the death knell for the USDollar. It hastened numerous nations to seek a US$ alternative. It provided a fertile environment to fashion new trade settlement mechanisms. It pushed Turkey into acting as a gold bullion intermediary role in the provision of gold for usage in trade settlement. See their role with India and Iran, fully described in the December Hat Trick Letter. When an independent highly reliable gold trader source was asked to confirm the role of Turkey as a test case in developing gold based trade settlement, he gave a tacit confirmation. He has mentioned Turkey in past conversations over the last couple years frequently. Just as Turkey was a swing nation in the NATO alliance against the Soviet Union, Turkey will serve in my view as a critical swing nation in the movement to create a non-US$ trade settlement system. The new system will be decentralized, meaning not funneled through the major banks, not passing through the USFed as clearing house. Turkey will be essential in the formation of the Eurasia trade zone. First comes the Asian trade zone (the US excluded), and next comes the hand shake between the Asians and Europeans to create Eurasia. Some folks have expressed doubt toward the arrival of a vast trans-continental trade region. They seem painfully unaware of an incredible network of railway lines connecting Russia to Germany and China, and of a incredible network of liquified natural gas lines connecting Russia with all of Europe and Central Asia. Across the new trade zone and its diverse commerce, the USDollar will not be at the center. It is in fact being isolated, since it is a toxic agent. Everything US$-based is crumbling, from currencies to bonds to banks to credit lines to economies.

 

CHINESE YUAN BILATERAL CURRENCY SWAPS

The advent of barter has come. It has not been noticed by the incredibly distracted, misled, deceived, poorly trained, mentally challenged, and myopic American public. They read about a currency swap accord, give it no emphasis or importance, and then turn to the fund manager opinions on rotating stocks from one sector to the next. They read about a workaround to the Iran sanctions, express some puppet-like response of anger or disgust, and then turn to IPOs and stories on Google, Apple, and Facebook shares. They do not even read about the failed Trans Pacific Partnership, since it did not make it onto the financial pages. Sadly, the Jackass is slowly adopting a cold view that vast swaths of the US populace will suffer from a Darwinian event. Their home equity has vanished. Their job security has vanished, unless they work for defense contractors. Their pension funds have been damaged. Their wealth has been over 90% dedicated to paper securities in very obedient fashion. The great majority has dismissed the arguments for sound money or gold investments. Some have a pitifully small portion devoted to hard assets like perhaps some energy companies. Only those who adopt a Gold strategy will survive the powerful storm underway, as it intensifies. Great wealth is being destroyed, and only Gold & Silver will enable that survival by the construction of lifeboats. Paper wealth is being blown away, as only hard metal assets will prevail. Add energy and farmlands.

 

When people ask about the best allocation, my standard response is at least 90% precious metals, the rest to energy deposits, but not actually stocks, perhaps farmland if possible. The best diversification in my view is for laddering of silver purchases, starting at $10/oz and moving to $15/oz then $20/oz and finally to $25/oz with continued accumulation at $30/oz and above. Gold will win the monetary war, but Silver will take the greatest gains. Gold is fine for a more stable long-term protection against toxic paper wealth, but my ongoing objection is that the New York, London, and Swiss syndicate centers play too many games. Silver is subject to global shortages, vast industrial demand, non-replaceable usage, and a much more dangerous situation that the powerful dark forces cannot manage. Silver coins will be widely used in commerce, while Gold bars will thrive in banking transactions. Besides, killing werewolves is the zinger factor with silver bullets.

 

China has made numerous bilateral swap accords with other nations. As the label indicates, they are deals cut between China and another nation to freely use Chinese Yuan from a credited account that will retain equilibrium. So far many nations have signed up and even renewed deals. The list of nations includes Brazil, Russia, Japan, and India. One might be correct to include all of Asia on the list, as nations like South Korea and Taiwan and Vietnam freely trade in Yuan transactions. The first major signal that the bilateral swaps have taken hold sufficiently to undermine the USDollar through a new trade foundation will be the complete arena of Asian trade being conducted in Yuan transactions. They have no need for USDollars in trade. They see their USTBonds held in reserves under management as vulnerable to serious loss. They see their USTBonds held as subject to grand debasement from USFed central bank monetary policy itself. They see their USTBonds held as supported by Weimar machinery in hyper-drive. They see their USTBonds held as part of a corrupted Wall Street arena and its vast trappings. They see their USTBonds held as prisoner to the USGovt debt battles and a potential crush victim on a fall from the fiscal cliff.

 

The Chinese bilateral swap accords are actually barter deals. They often represent rather balanced trade, unlike with what the nations have set up with the United States. Unless nations purchase enormous lots of military hardware, they have little need for US products. Hence the end result is a bigger batch of toxic USTBonds to purchase in order to balance the accounts and to avoid the local foreign currency exchange rate from rising enough to damage their export trade. The bilateral swap accords work to create numerous two-way ties as part of a latticework that eventually will form a transnational fabric without the USDollar as nuclear cores in each connection weld. The bilateral swaps are barter without the name in a direct confrontation against the USDollar and its catbird seat. That seat, once a throne, is being dismantled. The latticework of bilateral swaps has created the critical mass of a global blanket with no centralized control room, no choke points with bank transactions, no SWIFT code ticket taker. The bilateral swap accords work to build a critical mass that isolates the USDollar from an entirely new foundation for trade. The USDollar is being isolated.

 

COMEX PRESSURE POINT

The COMEX is under constant unrelenting pressure. They must shift around ill-gotten precious metal inventory in order to avoid a default. That would be embarrassing. The main device for maintaining order at the COMEX continues to be naked shorting of futures contracts, a blatantly corrupt practice. The naked short ambushes occur with greater frequency in recent months. The arrival of Scotia Mocatta as a provider of gold supply and naked short commitments will kill them eventually, as they have made a deal with the devils. The overnight dispatch of silver from the US to London has grown enormous. One can only suspect that the raids of GLD gold inventory and SLV silver inventory is much greater than is estimated even by its most ardent critics. The illicit sources for COMEX precious metal are fast drying up.

 

The new wrinkle to render damage to the COMEX is the arrival of the Shanghai Gold Exchange. The graphic displays the differential, a basis for potential arbitrage. Complex arrangements can be constructed that take advantage of the differential, basically buying the gold metal in New York, finding a way to make it available in Shanghai, where it is sold at a $20 to $30 higher price. The end result of the arbitrage is high volume drainage of gold in New York. The snapshot below is taken from December 7th. Several other snapshots are available, with similar price spreads. Finally COMEX based in New York, a major nucleus of corrupt financial markets, has some competition. Expect the spread to widen, the opportunity for arbitrage to grow, and pressure to build for a breakdown.

 

Sadly for the evil camp, they are fast running out of sources. They stole the entire MF Global private accounts, denied the clients their legal right to receive silver in delivery, and received legal protection by the USGovt and Appellate courts, after changing the law applied to financial firm liquidation instead of brokerage firm liquidation. It was a blatant maneuver that has depleted the COMEX of a major slice of legitimate business. The subsequent similar raid on PFG-Best had an echo effect, adding to the removal of COMEX clientele. The end result is that the risk hedge trade is finding ways to conduct their business without use of the indescribably corrupt COMEX. So the COMEX is being isolated in risk hedging just like the USDollar in global trade.

 

PETRO-DOLLAR SUNSET

The upcoming Petro-Dollar sunset has very uncertain timing indications. The assassination of Prince Bandar in Saudi Arabia, followed by the potential incapacitation of King Abdullah could work to weaken the foundation of the Petro-Dollar itself. Back in April 2010, the Saudis and other main Persian Gulf nations struck a deal with Russia and China for protection in the gulf region. That accord was not given much emphasis anywhere, nor publicity. But to the Jackass, who had a source at the meeting, the event signaled the sunset of the Petro-Dollar defacto standard. The Saudis would turn to Asia for protection and security, at a time when their crude oil trade was growing with Eastern nations, and when the North American production was made more available for the US demand in markets. The day is nigh where the Saudis accept non-US$ payments for crude oil. They might first accept Chinese Yuan, then Japanese Yen, then Korean won, then Gold itself through big Turkish bazaars. The Petro-Dollar is being isolated for sunset, and will be a key event is the removal of the USDollar as center for global trade settlement. Also, the Saudi regime in my view does not have much longer to survive. Numerous companies and financial firms and export facilitators have exited from the United Arab Emirates in preparation for the fall of the House of Saud. The Saudi Arabian royals have unstable neighbors in every border, especially Bahrain, Iraq, and Yemen.

 

WILD CARD FACTORS

Numerous wild cards float on the global trade table. Bank strictures head the list, with imposed rules on account reporting abroad, with tax information requirements, and with capital controls. It is harder each month to move large amounts of funds. The forms to complete have become onerous and imposing, acting like implicit restrictions. It is harder each month to use simple bank cards at ATM machines. With a simple rule change, the banks cannot complete these transactions. The organized and patterned restrictions work to trap USDollars within the local US borders. Consider it an internal mechanism to assist the global isolation of the USDollar.

 

LOST GLOBAL RESERVE STATUS

The described isolation on numerous fronts, whether trade or COMEX or banks, all work toward the elimination of the toxic agent in the USDollar. The world wants a more just, more functional, more efficient, more equitable global trade system. The United States has abused its global reserve custodian position too long. The world is fighting vigorously to remove it. The usage of the USDollar as a credit card to finance its consumption binge without ability to pay will come to an end. The usage of the USDollar as a device to enable powerful aggression in war to advance syndicate interests like vertically integrated narcotics will come to an end. The usage of the USDollar as a banking monopoly device will come to an end. The usage of the USDollar as an instrument for bond fraud will come to an end. The usage of the USDollar as a free lunch device to finance the USGovt deficit will come to an end. When the USDollar is no longer the global reserve currency, the door to the Third World will be opened wide. When the USDollar is no longer the global reserve currency, the supply lines will be interrupted to the USEconomy, giving off a prominent Third World stench. When the USDollar is no longer the global reserve currency, the price inflation effect will become a national topic of grand debate and extreme anger. When the USDollar is no longer the global reserve currency, the United States as a nation will experience tremendous additional isolation and hardship, as most Third World nations do. The level of corruption within the USGovt and US banking corner offices is already far more entrenched than any Third World nation. The vote fraud for US national elections is equally prevalent, but more sophisticated.

 

When the USDollar is no longer the global reserve currency, the Gold Standard will be right around the corner, if not already in the implementation stage. The Gold price will react quickly to the removal of the USDollar from its prized perch of abuse. The center of the new trade settlement system will be GOLD, which is not even being discussed by the enlightened denizens of the gold community. It will be the basis of the Letters of Credit, in the form of gold trade notes. The short-term credit that facilitates trade will have a truly magnificent grand Gold core. The common agreement will be to make the Gold price at least $5000 per ounce, probably closer to $7000 per ounce. They will in the process dismiss, overrun, and put into oblivion the COMEX and the LBMA, rendering them to the scrap heap of irrelevance.

Monetary Crash

Why they Want America DISARMED

December 27th, 2012 by

http://www.thelonestarwatchdog.com/2012/12/23/why-they-want-america-disarmed/

Government Should Disarm Itself If they Are Concerned About Mentally ill People With Guns.

By The Watchdog

If you ever watch a TV show or movie when there is a bank robbery. You see an armed guard in the bank. Before the robbers can rob a bank. They have to disarm the guard who has a gun. Then they can take all the money out of the bank. Just like when they rob an armored car. They have to disarm the person in the bank before they take the money out of the bank.

I am not going to get into the Sandy Hook massacre. We won the argument for the right to keep and bear arms. So why is the other side still trying to scream for gun control? Why do they want to have the American people disarmed? It is not because of the children. Well look what they want to do because the American people are very well armed. As long we are still armed, the tyrants hands are tied.

Starting January 1, 2013, the Bush Tax cuts expire. Taxes will be raised will stall the economy. Many IRS agents will come out to harass people who are broke. As long the people are armed. The IRS might meet resistance from people trying to keep their homes.

They want to enforce UN Agenda 21. They cannot remove people off their land in rural areas into the big cities.

People cannot be forced into FEMA camps against their will to commit genocide. If we can still resist. They cannot move.

They cannot dominate every facet in our lives if we can still fight back.

The TSA will have a hard time at Highway checkpoints because people will not tolerate it for too long.

They cannot round-up people and have them executed into mass graves if the citizens are armed.

They cannot enforce Obamacare with IRS coming out trying to make people pay for a health plan no one wants.

The cannot seize people’s private pension funds to bail out the too big to fail banks. That will make many people very angry.

The system wants the people disarmed for one reason. When this economy collapses. It’s game over. Many people will hunt down the thieves who stole their wealth. The country can only loot so much before they cross a line where bullets will start flying.

The system knows the people do not trust the government at all. People are not buying guns in record numbers because they want to go hunting. They are buying them to resist tyranny.

Do the people really trust the government will be nice to us if we all turn in our weapons? Do you think they will keep their word and protect us if we surrender our firearms? Do not bet on it. If you think the government is abusive now with the people being armed. It will be hell on earth to give up our guns to these wicked men.

Most of the world, the people are disarmed. Their governments are ruthless and do not care because the people cannot fight back. We are the last house on the block that is still armed.  When we succeed in holding the line not surrendering our guns causing the bankers to be arrested. We could see a chain reaction around the world of Banker tyranny being thrown off.

It is not Obama only who wants the guns, It’s the banking cartel that wants us disarmed so they can loot what is left of the nation and to oppress the population.

 

We are the stumbling block to the globalist because we have guns. This is why we have to hold the line and say no.

 

It is our God-given right to self-defense. It is part of our right to life and our instinct for self-preservation.

 

The second Amendment is necessary for the Security of a FREE STATE.

 

A right that shall not be infringed. It has nothing to do with duck hunting or target shooting. It is about putting down tyranny when government becomes oppressive.

 

The people in office do not want a free state. They want an empire of world domination of the people and the nations.

 

We are a threat to that power if we stand our ground being armed. As long we stay armed. We can keep our land and our families will stick together. If we disarm. Our families are broken up and all we worked for is stolen.

If we stay armed to the teeth. They cannot steal what is left of the nation. The Bankers and Authoritarians face being arrested for their fraud. Stand your ground, our guns are our liberty teeth. We have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

 

Stand your ground!

Say Goodbye To The Good Life

December 26th, 2012 by

http://www.pakalertpress.com

TRUTHER DECEMBER 26, 2012 1


Will this be the last normal holiday season that Americans ever experience?  To many Americans, such a notion would be absolutely inconceivable.  After all, in the affluent areas of the country restaurants and malls are absolutely packed.  Beautiful holiday decorations are seemingly everywhere this time of the year and children all over the United States are breathlessly awaiting the arrival of Santa Claus.  Even though poverty is exploding to unprecedented levels, most families will still have mountains of presents under their Christmas trees.  Of course a whole lot of those presents were purchased with credit cards, but people don’t like to talk about that.  It kind of spoils the illusion.  Sadly, the truth is that our entire economy is a giant illusion.  The extreme prosperity that we have been enjoying has been fueled by debt, and any future prosperity that we will experience is completely dependent on our ability to go into even more debt.  The total amount of debt in our economy is almost 10 times larger than it was just 30 years ago, but we don’t like to think about that too much.  Most Americans are way too busy living the good life to be bothered with “doom and gloom”.  Well, get ready to say goodbye to normal.  As history has shown us, no financial bubble lasts forever, and time is rapidly running out for us.

 

You know that the hour is late when even mainstream news sources start publishing articles with titles such as this: “Will 2013 Mark the Beginning of American Decline?

That article appeared on Bloomberg.com the other day, and it was written by Simon Johnson, a former chief economist at the International Monetary Fund.  He is convinced that a day of reckoning is coming for U.S. government finances, and he seems resigned to the fact that we will not be ready when that day arrives…

“Sooner or later, it will be America’s turn to fall out of favor with investors and to see its own interest rates rise. It is hard to know when that day will come, or precisely what pressures the country will face.

Let me only venture one forecast: We will not be ready.”

Other analysts are far more pessimistic.  For example, the following is what Gerald Celente said about the “bond bubble” during a recent interview with King World News

Eric King: “Gerald, I wanted to take a look at this upcoming issue you have coming out. (In here it says,) ‘Bonds Away! The bond bomb is ready to explode … threatening to make the real estate and dot-com bubbles, and even the Great Recession, look like market corrections.’ Can you talk about that?”

Celente: “Yes. This piece is being penned by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, the former Assistant Treasury Secretary under Ronald Reagan. And he is convinced that the bond bubble is about to burst. This cannot continue to go on the way it is. Everyone knows that the whole game is rigged, and so is this….”

“The whole game is rigged. It’s ready to go down, and Dr. Paul Craig Roberts believes it’s ‘Bonds Away’ in 2013 as the bond bubble explodes and brings about a financial disaster even worse than the Great Depression.”

Eric King: “He’s saying here it’s a road to financial collapse that we are going to head down when this thing bursts.”

Celente: “It is. Because the whole world is being propped up by these phony bonds and it’s going to collapse. It has to happen. Interest rates are going to start going up, and when they do the bond bubble explodes. You cannot keep interest rates at zero for this amount of time and expect anything other than disaster to follow.”

For much more on all this, you can listen to another excellent interview with Gerald Celente right here.

Our politicians just assume that we will be able to borrow trillions upon trillions of dollars far into the future at super low interest rates, but that is a very dangerous assumption.

As I noted the other day, the average rate of interest on U.S. government debt was 2.534 percent at the end of November.  If that number just rose to where it was about a decade earlier we would be in a massive amount of trouble.

Back in the year 2000, the average rate of interest on U.S. government debt was 6.638 percent.  If we were at that level today, the U.S. government would be paying out more than a trillion dollars a year just in interest on the national debt.

But our politicians just keep borrowing and spending as if we could do this forever.

From the time that George Washington was inaugurated (1789) to the time that George W. Bush was inaugurated (2001), the U.S. government accumulated about 5.7 trillion dollars of debt.

During the first four years of the Obama administration, the U.S. government accumulated about 5.7 trillion dollars of debt.

How can anyone support this kind of insanity?

You can see an excellent video demonstrating the vastness of our national debt right here.  In the end, all of this debt will absolutely destroy the U.S. dollar, our economic system and the bright futures that our children and our grandchildren were supposed to have.

As if all of that was not enough to be concerned about, there is also the threat that Wall Street could implode at any time.  Most Americans have no idea that Wall Street has been transformed into the largest casino in the history of the world.  The “too big to fail” banks are the ringleaders, and the derivatives bubble hangs over our financial system like a “sword of Damocles” that could fall at virtually any moment.

Everything will remain fine as long as the spiral of derivatives that our bankers have constructed remains perfectly balanced.  But if something happens and it becomes unbalanced and starts to collapse, the consequences could be unlike anything we have ever seen before.

A recent Zero Hedge article entitled “1000x Systemic Leverage: $600 Trillion In Gross Derivatives ‘Backed’ By $600 Billion In Collateral” detailed how there is barely any collateral backing up the hundreds of trillions of dollars of derivatives that are out there…

But a bigger question is what is the actual collateral backing this gargantuan market which is about 10 times greater than the world’s combined GDP, because as the “derivative” name implies all this exposure is backed on some dedicated, real assets, somewhere. Luckily, the IMF recently released a discussion note titled “Shadow Banking: Economics and Policy” where quietly hidden in one of the appendices it answers precisely this critical question. The bottom line: $600 trillion in gross notional derivatives backed by a tiny $600 billion in real assets: a whopping 0.1% margin requirement! Surely nothing can possibly go wrong with this amount of unprecedented 1000x systemic leverage.

Our entire economy has become a giant pyramid of debt, risk and leverage.  At some point there is going to be a giant crash.  When that happens, people are going to become very desperate.

When people become very desperate, they often accept “solutions” that they were not willing to consider previously.

We need to learn some lessons from history.  This is exactly the kind of thing that happened back in the 1930s.

For example, an elderly woman named Kitty Werthmann is telling audiences what life was like in Austria back in the late 1930s…

“In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25 percent inflation and 25 percent bank loan interest rates.”

“Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn’t want to work; there simply weren’t any jobs.”

The Austrian people were really hurting and they were desperate for answers.  When Hitler came to them with “solutions”, they were ready to embrace him with open arms…

“We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933.” she recalls. “We had been told that they didn’t have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living.”

“Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group – Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that everyone in Germany was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria. We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back.” "Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.”

“We were overjoyed,” remembers Kitty, “and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government opened up big field kitchens and everyone was fed.”

Sadly, America is already starting to go down the same path in many ways.  If you doubt this, you can read the rest of her account right here.

Right now, things are still relatively good in America.  Yes, there are a whole host of economic numbers that look really bad, but what we are experiencing right now is nothing compared to the horrific economic pain that is coming.

When our economy finally crashes, nobody is going to be able to press a button and restore things to how they were previously.  We will be told that we have to “adjust” and consider “new solutions” to our “new challenges”.  Someday we will look back on the good life that we were enjoying in 2010, 2011 and 2012 and wish that we could go back to those days.

So enjoy the relative peacefulness and prosperity of these times while you still can.  A horrific economic collapse is on the way, and once it strikes none of our lives will ever be the same.

Hard Times Ahead

The Coming Drone Attack on America

December 24th, 2012 by

http://readersupportednews.org/opinion2/282-98/15172-focus-the-coming-drone-attack-on-america

By Naomi Wolf, Guardian UK

Drones on domestic surveillance duties are already deployed by police and corporations. In time, they will likely be weaponised

People often ask me, in terms of my argument about "ten steps" that mark the descent to a police state or closed society, at what stage we are. I am sorry to say that with the importation of what will be tens of thousands of drones, by both US military and by commercial interests, into US airspace, with a specific mandate to engage in surveillance and with the capacity for weaponization – which is due to begin in earnest at the start of the new year – it means that the police state is now officially here.

In February of this year, Congress passed the FAA Reauthorization Act, with its provision to deploy fleets of drones domestically. Jennifer Lynch, an attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, notes that this followed a major lobbying effort, "a huge push by […] the defense sector" to promote the use of drones in American skies: 30,000 of them are expected to be in use by 2020, some as small as hummingbirds – meaning that you won't necessarily see them, tracking your meeting with your fellow-activists, with your accountant or your congressman, or filming your cruising the bars or your assignation with your lover, as its video-gathering whirs.

Others will be as big as passenger planes. Business-friendly media stress their planned abundant useby corporations: police in Seattle have already deployed them.

An unclassified US air force document reported by CBS (pdf) news expands on this unprecedented and unconstitutional step – one that formally brings the military into the role of controlling domestic populations on US soil, which is the bright line that separates a democracy from a military oligarchy. (The US constitution allows for the deployment of National Guard units by governors, who are answerable to the people; but this system is intended, as is posse comitatus, to prevent the military from taking action aimed at US citizens domestically.)

The air force document explains that the air force will be overseeing the deployment of its own military surveillance drones within the borders of the US; that it may keep video and other data it collects with these drones for 90 days without a warrant – and will then, retroactively, determine if the material can be retained – which does away for good with the fourth amendment in these cases. While the drones are not supposed to specifically "conduct non-consensual surveillance on on specifically identified US persons", according to the document, the wording allows for domestic military surveillance of non-"specifically identified" people (that is, a group of activists or protesters) and it comes with the important caveat, also seemingly wholly unconstitutional, that it may not target individuals "unless expressly approved by the secretary of Defense".

In other words, the Pentagon can now send a domestic drone to hover outside your apartment window, collecting footage of you and your family, if the secretary of Defense approves it. Or it may track you and your friends and pick up audio of your conversations, on your way, say, to protest or vote or talk to your representative, if you are not "specifically identified", a determination that is so vague as to be meaningless.

What happens to those images, that audio? "Distribution of domestic imagery" can go to various other government agencies without your consent, and that imagery can, in that case, be distributed to various government agencies; it may also include your most private moments and most personal activities. The authorized "collected information may incidentally include US persons or private property without consent". Jennifer Lynch of the Electronic Frontier Foundation told CBS:

"In some records that were released by the air force recently … under their rules, they are allowed to fly drones in public areas and record information on domestic situations."

This document accompanies a major federal push for drone deployment this year in the United States, accompanied by federal policies to encourage law enforcement agencies to obtain and use them locally, as well as by federal support for their commercial deployment. That is to say: now HSBC, Chase, Halliburton etc can have their very own fleets of domestic surveillance drones. The FAA recently established a more efficient process for local police departments to get permits for their own squadrons of drones.

Given the Department of Homeland Security militarization of police departments, once the circle is completed with San Francisco or New York or Chicago local cops having their own drone fleet – and with Chase, HSBC and other banks having hired local police, as I reported here last week – the meshing of military, domestic law enforcement, and commercial interests is absolute. You don't need a messy, distressing declaration of martial law.

And drone fleets owned by private corporations means that a first amendment right of assembly is now over: if Occupy is massing outside of a bank, send the drone fleet to surveil, track and harass them. If citizens rally outside the local Capitol? Same thing. As one of my readers put it, the scary thing about this new arrangement is deniability: bad things done to citizens by drones can be denied by private interests – "Oh, that must have been an LAPD drone" – and LAPD can insist that it must have been a private industry drone. For where, of course, will be the accountability from citizens buzzed or worse by these things?

Domestic drone use is here, and the meshing has begun: local cops in Grand Forks, North Dakota called in a DHS Predator drone – the same make that has caused hundreds of civilian casualties in Pakistan – over a dispute involving a herd of cattle. The military rollout in process and planned, within the US, is massive: the Christian Science Monitor reports that a total of 110 military sites for drone activity are either built or will be built, in 39 states. That covers America.

We don't need a military takeover: with these capabilities on US soil and this air force white paper authorization for data collection, the military will be effectively in control of the private lives of American citizens. And these drones are not yet weaponized.

"I don't think it's crazy to worry about weaponized drones. There is a real consensus that has emerged against allowing weaponized drones domestically. The International Association of Chiefs of Police has recommended against it," warns Jay Stanley, senior policy analyst at the ACLU, noting that there is already political pressure in favor of weaponization:

"At the same time, it is inevitable that we will see [increased] pressure to allow weaponized drones. The way that it will unfold is probably this: somebody will want to put a relatively 'soft' nonlethal weapon on a drone for crowd control. And then things will ratchet up from there."

And the risk of that? The New America Foundation's report on drone use in Pakistan noted that the Guardian had confirmed 193 children's deaths from drone attacks in seven years. It noted that for the deaths of ten militants, 1,400 civilians with no involvement in terrorism also died. Not surprisingly, everyone in that region is traumatized: children scream when they hear drones. An NYU and Stanford Law School report notes that drones "terrorize citizens 24 hours a day".

If US drones may first be weaponized with crowd-control features, not lethal force features, but with no risk to military or to police departments or DHS, the playing field for freedom of assembly is changed forever. So is our private life, as the ACLU's Stanley explains:

"Our biggest concerns about the deployment of drones domestically is that they will be used to create pervasive surveillance networks. The danger would be that an ordinary individual once they step out of their house will be monitored by a drone everywhere they walk or drive. They may not be aware of it. They might monitored or tracked by some silent invisible drone everywhere they walk or drive."

"So what? Why should they worry?" I asked.

"Your comings and goings can be very revealing of who you are and what you are doing and reveal very intrusive things about you – what houses of worship you are going to, political meetings, particular doctors, your friends' and lovers' houses."

I mentioned the air force white paper. "Isn't the military not supposed to be spying on Americans?" I asked.

"Yes, the posse comitatus act passed in the 19th century forbids a military role in law enforcement among Americans."

What can we do if we want to oppose this? I wondered. According to Stanley, many states are passing legislation banning domestic drone use. Once again, in the fight to keep America a republic, grassroots activism is pitched in an unequal contest against a militarized federal government.

Why do I need an assault rifle?

December 23rd, 2012 by

http://www.dailypaul.com/266890/why-do-i-need-an-assault-rifle

by snakepit22

Why do I need an assault rifle you ask? I don't need it for hunting. I don't need it for home protection from a single invader, or even two. So I echo the sentiment of many gun control advocates; Why do I need an assault rifle, with a high capacity clip no less?

Here is why. I need an assault rifle because I live under the rule of a government who thinks it has the right to take away my assault rifle; a government who dictates who I can marry, what I can eat, drink, and smoke; a government who uses force to take my money away from me, who charges me rent (property tax) to live in my own home: a government who commits acts of war without the consent of the people, who murders it's own citizens without probable cause or due process; a government who has monopolized the currency with which I can trade my goods and services, then devalued that currency through inflation and taxation; a government which uses the tyranny of democracy rather than the freedom of a republic.

To put it bluntly, I need an assault rifle in the event that I might have to declare my independence from a tyrannical government. I'm statistically unlikely to ever shoot an intruder in my home. I'm statistically unlikely to ever be in the position to stop one of these rare mass killings at a school, as these things happen far less often than the media would have you believe. However, whether you are Democrat or Republican, you can easily find countless instances of the government stepping all over your rights, whether it be on social issues (marriage, gay rights, religious rights, etc.) or fiscal issues (taxation, property rights, business regulations, etc.)

So, how likely is it you will use your assault rifle to prevent a school shooting? Not very likely at all. However, how likely is it that you will need your assault rifle for the purpose of protecting your rights from a tyrannical government? Well, the fact that we are having this conversation not only shows that it is increasingly likely, but it also clearly demonstrates the reason why the right to bear arms is unalienable.

When a tyrannical government uses its assault rifles to take away my rights, it would be beyond immoral to expect me to defend those rights with my grandpa's shotgun. That is why I need an assault rifle.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

In even plainer words, I need a 308 assault rifle and 10 30 rd magazine’s, a Rem 870 12 ga. Shotgun with an 8 rd tube, and an H K 45 acp elite with 6 twelve round magazine’s to make the TRAITORS who come to take my wife and I to a detention center pay a price they did not expect. It matters not if I live or die; I just want to make the bastards suffer for being TRAITORS to my country. Being armed, ready and capable of using force to protect my rights is highly preferable to living in a land of pussies, and TRAITORS. Besides that, I want to get my money’s worth from the investment of ten thousand rounds of assorted ammo and all of the other gear it takes to be a living threat to wantabe bad asses in uniform. Uniforms they don’t deserve to wear!

“Solving” mass shootings by starting a civil war. Yes, by all means, let’s have a ‘serious discussion’ about more firearm rights restrictions.

December 17th, 2012 by

 "Solving" mass shootings by starting a civil war. Yes, by all means, let's have a 'serious discussion' about more firearm rights restrictions.

By Mike Vanderboegh

It is the Sunday following the Connecticut massacre of innocents. All the usual suspects of the citizen disarmament lobby are on the talking head shows demanding a "serious discussion" about further proscribing the rights of American firearm owners. They are demanding, among other things:

1. A ban on private sales of firearms without first obtaining the federal government's permission. (This would mean that before a grandfather could hand a family heirloom to his son or granddaughter that he would have to get the government's permission to do so.) No one, and I mean NO ONE, would be able to legally transfer a firearm to ANYONE with first being entered into the government's database. This is what the antis call a "reasonable restriction." It also happens to be an infringement of individual rights that the Founders would have considered a casus belli, for not even King George the Third was so grasping.

2. A ban on "large capacity magazines", which seems to be anything over 10 rounds. The reasoning behind this is that "no one needs thirty rounds to hunt a deer," the so-called "sporting purpose" written into the 1968 Gun Control Act by Senator Thomas Dodd who apparently lifted it from the Nazi weapons law of 1938 (Dodd was a Nuremberg trials prosecutor). The Founders would have found this to be silly, for the Second Amendment is not about the right to bear arms to hunt game but rather to resist tyrannical government. Thirty round magazines come in handy for that.

3. A new "Assault Weapons Ban" like the 1994 law which was neither about "assault weapons" (those are, by definition, full automatic which can empty the magazine with a single pull of the trigger) nor was it a ban, since it merely regulated cosmetic features on military-style semi-automatic rifles (which fire one shot per pull of the trigger) and it grandfathered in all existing so-called "assault weapons," presumably because they knew that a confiscation bill would be resisted by force. Indeed, in the run up to the passage of the AWB, millions of such riles were domestically produced, imported and sold. This time, we are assured by the antis that not only will the new bill be "tougher" but that it will exempt several hundred semi-automatic rifles by name that are used for "sporting purposes." This is an attempt (and it may well work) to split off the hunters from the collectors of evil, black military-style semi-automatic rifles. How the bill will do these two seemingly mutually exclusive things is at this writing unexplained.

The fact that the weapons used to kill the little children and their teachers at the school were stolen from a legal owner in a state which strictly regulates firearm ownership (who was a crime victim herself) and that, like almost all mass shootings took place in a woefully-misnamed "gun free zone" (more like a criminal empowerment zone), makes no difference to the antis, whose only "solution" is to force lawful gun owners to surrender more of their rights. Within hours of the tragedy of unspeakable evil, these people were out in the media, social and traditional, dancing in the blood of the victims to make their points that the rest of us should submit to further circumscription of our God-given, inalienable traditional rights to liberty and property.

So now they are demanding a "serious discussion" about firearms, which translates into jaw-boning the weak-kneed GOP leadership in the House and Senate to agree to one or more of their proposals as outlined above. Yes, by all means, let's have a 'serious discussion' about more firearm rights restrictions.

My contribution to this "serious discussion" is this question that I would like the antis to answer up front: What do they intend to do with the millions of us "bitter clingers" who will disobey any more such laws? If they pass the "gunshow loophole" bill, we will simply host out own without background checks and defy the federal government to do anything about it. If they ban large-capacity, I can guarantee you that they will soon be turned out by the million in thousands of metal-working shops around the county. (Didn't anyone learn anything about Prohibition?) If they "ban" military-pattern semi-auto rifles, the same thing will happen. The only thing is, that if you make the punishment for possession of a previously-legal semi-automatic rifle (that he can no longer legally obtain) a felony, isn't that incentivizing the home gun maker to turn out small, concealable machine guns? You will have already made him a felon. What then does he have to lose?

So I'd like the antis to answer up front before their "serious discussion" — How many of us are they willing to kill to achieve their avowed purpose? A hundred thousand? A million? Two? Ten?

You may pass a law, but how will you enforce it? And, again, how many of us "bitter clingers" are you willing to kill in the process of this civil war you propose?

TO LIBERAL AMERICA, I SAY, DIVIDED WE STAND, AND DIVIDED WE’LL STAY

By OLDDOG

There are two types of gun control advocates, the intelligent manipulators of society, and the stupid assholes who believe their propaganda.

If a bunch of uneducated rag heads can convince one of their people to blow their ass up and kill a bunch of their enemies in the process, what’s to stop our rabid C.I.A. from programming some disturbed idiot to kill a bunch of children? And who in their right mind would believe the media’s presentation of the events surrounding this tragedy? I have yet to see a more staged event than this one, and the ignorant public lap’s it up, like its free candy.

Listen up folk’s, if our manipulators could cause the twin towers to pan-cake and convince an ignorant public it was done by 19 rag-heads with box cutters, killing a bunch of children in a secure building is a piece of cake for them. It was a no-risk exercise from the get go. Please crawl out of your ass and think for a minute. How many wars have they started and made you believe we were heroes for killing the other side’s civilians, including their children? What is so special about our children, and not other countries children? You don’t get all upset when our drones kill and mutilate their children do you. Just wait until they unleash their drones on your children. Can you not visualize one of those death instruments hitting one of your local kinder-gardens? Are you still so ignorant to believe America is the shinning light of society? The land of the free, and the home of the brave?????? Wake the hell up!

Instead of demanding, the butchers in D.C. steal our self-defense weapons, or limit us to muzzle loaders, how about doing a little research and learning what’s really going on in D.C. When TSHTF and starving hordes of scumbags break into your homes and rape, kill, and steal all you have, you will be glad to have someone with assault weapons living next door. In fact, you will be begging us to protect you! We will remember those who wanted the pigs in D.C. to steal our weapons and ammo, and leave us defenseless like you. Those who do not have the guts to protect their own families will sing a different tune then, and we will tell you to go piss up a rope. Never think we will give up our weapons like the stupid Australians’ did. IT WON’T HAPPEN! We would rather have the chance to kill those who come for our weapons, than lay down like a bunch of cowards like you. Dying while protecting what is mine is a hell of a lot better than living with the fear that you do. We are not your enemy, your government, and the media industry is your enemy. Why would you destroy your last chance to survive?

Never think that this diatribe is evidence that I don’t grieve for those children, because I do, and also for their parents and other family members, it’s just that I am so infuriated at your lack of common sense.

How in the hell could you be so stupid as to throw away your freedom from tyrannical governance? How could you be so naive as to think all will be well if no one had a gun? Have you ever seen a person who has been chopped up by a machete, or beaten to a bloody mess with a baseball bat? Remember, you are the jerks who believed 19 rag-heads hijacked those planes with nothing but box-cutters.

All of this self-defense aside, the founders real intent was for the people to be able to defend their self from their government, which is something that has come to pass in America. We will die fighting for our freedom, and consider it an honor. You on the other hand will kiss their ass, and thank them for eliminating those of us with the balls to call you cowards. You are a hopeless bunch of wimps, with the intelligence of a rat, and as long as we both inhabit this country there will be no peace! I pity you!

As for you scumbags in law enforcement and military who will come for us, there is no lower life form than you!

 Molōn labe!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Power Elite Bans Classic Books in US, Seeks Exclusive Narrative

December 12th, 2012 by

http://www.thedailybell.com/28438/Power-Elite-Bans-Classic-Books-in-US-Seeks-Exclusive-Narrative

by Staff Report

Catcher in the Rye dropped from US school curriculum … Schools in America are to drop classic books such as Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird and JD Salinger's Catcher in the Rye from their curriculum in favor of 'informational texts'. American literature classics are to be replaced by insulation manuals and plant inventories in US classrooms by 2014. A new school curriculum which will affect 46 out of 50 states will make it compulsory for at least 70 per cent of books studied to be non-fiction, in an effort to ready pupils for the workplace. – RT

Dominant Social Theme: Telling stories is so "last year."

Free-Market Analysis: Fahrenheit 451 and other books about censorship got it wrong. The powers-that-be don't want to ban books, they want to ban STORIES.

This is the inescapable conclusion for those of us who believe in directed history. Over the past decade of covering the world for various proprietary blogs, it's become clear to us that most human events are manipulated by a small, sociopathic elite that controls central banking around the world.

Whether such control existed in previous millennia we are not in a position to say. But it would be our perspective – avoiding a discussion of past civilizations – that the overt control of Money Power has been growing, not diminishing, of late.

Of course, perhaps these things go in cycles. In that case it is our misfortune to live at the very apex of one such cycle and our good fortune to see – thanks to the Internet Reformation – that it is ending.

How do we know it is ending? Because the top elites are increasingly turning to the bluntest weapons in their fight to maintain power. Economic depression, military conflict and authoritarian democracy are all modern tools of repression and control. The idea is to create world government and nothing is to stop that progression.

By far the most ubiquitous method of control and persuasion is what we call the dominant social theme. This is usually a scarcity-based meme disseminated by the power elite via its controlled think tanks, media and universities and then acted on via its globalist facilities and political methodologies.

Scarcity–based memes are STORIES aimed at the middle class and designed to frighten people into giving up wealth and power to specially designed internationalist institutions. Food, water and energy scarcity along with overpopulation and various military and terrorist "threats" are the favorite tools of the top elites. None of the disseminated tales are true.

But it doesn't matter whether they are true or not. The propagation and saturation of these stories – fables – are most important to the narrative that the elites want to establish.

The chief narrative is that of the "small world." The world is to be seen as inevitably becoming "one." It is an ineluctable ascension to be desired and nurtured. It is, of course, for this reason that all talk of previous high civilizations is squelched. Whether they existed or not is not debatable, as the debate will never be held.

There is only one civilization. It was launched 5,000 years ago and world government will be its crowning glory.

This is the story. This is the narrative. There cannot be any other. And it is not enough for the elites to control the CONVERSATION. Now, apparently, they want to control the story line, as well.

Of course, one could argue that with books like Catcher in the Rye they control the story line anyway. But apparently, informal control was not enough. Now the control is to be formalized. If stories are to be written, they will be written by approved authors. If they are to be read, it will be within a predetermined cordon sanitaire.

There are to be no other gods but the god of the single story – the ONE … the single, all-encompassing plotline leading inevitably towards a gaily decorated single world with one ruling, elite authority. After which, from what we can tell, genocide will begin in earnest. Here's more from the RT article:

Books such as JD Salinger's Catcher in the Rye and Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird will be replaced by "informational texts" approved by the Common Core State Standards.

Suggested non-fiction texts include Recommended Levels of Insulation by the US Environmental Protection Agency, and the Invasive Plant Inventory, by California's Invasive Plant Council.

The new educational standards have the backing of the influential National Governors' Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers, and are being part-funded by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation …

Supporters of the directive argue that it will help pupils to develop the ability to write concisely and factually, which will be more useful in the workplace than a knowledge of Shakespeare.

Poor Bill Gates! A man who once dreamt of controlling his own US$100 billion fortune, he was attacked by the US government over a putative monopoly and then stripped of control of his resources and even his professional aspirations by a banking elite that will not tolerate any other monetary control but its own.

This is the reason its button man, Warren Buffett has been going from wealthy individual to wealthy individual like a honey bee, seeking to sip the sweet nectar of their vast good fortune by suggesting full scale donations to charities he controls. It is not an eleemosynary exercise but one of confiscation.

The top elite controls trillions but mere billionaires are not to be allowed. They must "give back" to the community. You see, in the brave new world of the Elite Narrative, a mere billionaire is nothing but the lowliest peon, someone to be efficiently reduced to penury. He or she is not to leave funds to family but instead to worthy charities and reputable causes.

This is what Bill Gates now confronts. After building one of the most successful companies in the world he now finds himself denuded of his fortune while his name is attached to the blackest kind of medical engineering via vaccinations and now – if this article is correct – the initiation of purposeful illiteracy.

It is ever thus these days. Cross the top elites and they will efficiently strip you of your resources and then blacken your name by association. They do this by manipulating the sociopolitical and economic narrative. This is why storytellers are in such demand and why the ability to tell a convincing story is a ticket to wealth, fame and power in the modern day.

It is why such tales are ever more strictly controlled, as well. Copyright and other legal engineering is brought to bear to ensure that the narratives produced and disseminated are the approved ones.

It is for this reason what we call the Internet Reformation has been such a setback to the power elite. The carefully crafted universe that has descended on the world like a gigantic bubble has been pricked. As it has collapsed, truth has leaked in.

We try to purvey some of that truth every day and so do others. We would even argue a critical mass has been reached and there is nothing much the elites can do to control the narrative anymore. They are trying, too, of course. But as happened with the Gutenberg press, once the truth emerges it tends to sweep the field.

It must be a waking nightmare for the top elites. Much of the progress of the past century has been undone. Memes have been exposed. Promotions have been capsized.

Terror and intimidation are going to have to be substituted for mind control and promotional suasion.

And, of course, censorship, too. The narratives of modern civilization are now seen as too powerful to be left in the hands of amateurs.

It's kind of pitiful, actually. It has no chance of working. Tale telling is as powerful a drive as sex or hunger. It cannot be controlled by regulation or a change in curriculum.

Conclusion: It is a testimony to their desperation and a further affirmation of the power of the Internet Reformation.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Let the reader beware! There will be no let up in media manipulation, and without the people participating in the internet reformation, the elite will use government to control what you can learn, and what they are doing to us. Get involved, and forward the Daily Bell and other news sources to your friends and family.

 

SOCIAL MANIPULATION

Friendly Authoritarian Face: UN Posts New Water Website Online

December 6th, 2012 by

http://www.thedailybell.com/28413/Friendly-Authoritarian-Face-UN-Posts-New-Water-Website-Online

by Staff Report

UN Unveils New World Water Website: Promises 'Sustainable' Management … On Monday at World Water Week UN-Water and UNESCO unveiled the new website for the International Year of Water Cooperation and World Water Day 2013. The site features a contest open to all, to come up with a slogan for the international year, with the author of the successful entry winning a trip to Paris for the 2013 Kick Off Event. – UN Website

Dominant Social Theme: We want to be your friend. So have a drink before we poison you.

Free-Market Analysis: We recommend everyone who is interested in such things go to the new UN World Water website to see how far the UN has come in terms of promoting a kind and friendly modern face.

This is the "new UN" – cheery, concerned and personable. Its dizzying array of websites are in a sense serial works of art.

We think we can sense anger and frustration behind them. The power elite that we track was very slow to understand what we call the Internet Reformation. And now they are participating with a vengeance. The cheeriness is forced. The calls for "sharing" are issued behind gritted teeth.

You see, the word has gone out. The Internet has already done its work. Millions are educated about directed historyand understand the truly authoritarian intentions of Money Power. World government we shall have, one way or another, if elite plans come to fruition … The inculcation of the globalist meme is purveyed via power elite dominant social themes.

When we analyze the new UN water website, we see the subdominant social theme of "social media" is being purveyed. One is urged to use "social media," including Twitter, Facebook and YouTube to make one's "voice heard."

We're not big fans of social media. Social media is a great way of controlling what's on the Internet because social media is created by a single owner that can adjust content and even remove it if it does not conform. We believe in blogs and independent websites. These, too, are in a sense controlled but somewhat less so. It's not as easy.

When it comes to social media, we've watched the elites and their Intel facilities create and monitor these facilities. There is a reason they actively encourage their use.

On the website, as well, there is talk of "stakeholders" – as if one can have a meaningful stake in something one neither owns nor controls – and cheery encouragement to "make your voice heard."

The new website (and others like it) truly oozes concern and caring. It is easy, therefore, not to remember that the people behind this website are the same ones that authorized the use of depleted uranium weapons in Iraq and Afghanistan. The depleted uranium has caused so many birth defects in Iraq that in certain regions women are still reportedly advised by doctors not to have children.

The US stands behind the UN and provides a large part of its budget. But the Pentagon continues to obfuscate regarding depleted uranium, which in the view of senior military officials, provides an important technological advantage in terms of firing weaponry.

One should also keep in mind that the same elite complex continues to insist that vaccines are safe for everyone when it is evidently and obviously not true.

And of course, more ludicrously, there is the global warming meme: The air we breathe is dangerous! Some of it must be extracted and buried in the ground at great cost or we will somehow simultaneously burn up and starve at the same time.

Or maybe global cooling is on the way … So hard to remember.

But we can be sure that the climate will change. And it will be BAD. And only the UN and other globalist enterprises can fend off disaster. That's very clear from reading websites such as this one.

Here's some more about the new and improved UN water website and the upcoming "World Water Day" …

International World Water Day is held annually on 22 March as a means of focusing attention on the importance of freshwater and advocating for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.

An international day to celebrate freshwater was recommended at the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED). The United Nations General Assembly responded by designating 22 March 1993 as the first World Water Day.

Each year, World Water Day highlights a specific aspect of freshwater. Coming soon in this section of the website, we will present a brief overview of the different themes that have been the focus of World Water Day celebrations.

The UN has been around for 60 years, at least. We are watching it grow and change before our eyes. It is truly where the "open conspiracy" to create global governance now resides.

Everything that is done at the UN takes place in groups of 40 and 50 countries at a time. And the intimidated and thuggish rulers of these countries are constantly issuing fatuous statements supporting each authoritarian endeavor.

The UN's language is always the same as well. Words like "sustainable" are mentioned with very specific intentions. Everything about the rhetoric and presentation of the "new UN" rhetoric and 'Net presentation is immensely authoritarian if you look beneath the surface.

The UN is kept in business by creating phony problems, mostly built around scarcity. Thus, if the UN is promoting "fresh water" you can be sure behind the scenes UN officials are actually working to make fresh water scarcer. Then they will try to regulate it.

Conclusion: Eventually, life's necessary resources may only be available to those who conform to the new world being built before our eyes.

Nothing less can be said about the U.N. than, it is the most diabolical organization in the history of humanity. Only the International Banking Cartel who is responsible for its creation is a lower form of Homo sapiens. They have no other purpose than total domination of planet earth. I pity the absolute idiots who support them.

Fiscal Cliff Austerity is Just Another Meme Designed to Steal What is Yours

December 2nd, 2012 by

 

http://www.thedailybell.com/28386/Ron-Holland-Fiscal-Cliff-Austerity-Just-Another-Meme-Designed-to-Steal-What-is-Yours

 

Austerity

"Since a politician never believes what he says, he is quite surprised to be taken at his word." – Charles De Gaulle

In my home country, the United States, we are watching the German and EU austerity demands destroy economies, social structures and entire nations all to protect the leading banking elites and their profits. In 2013 the false meme of austerity is also coming to the United States. Leading GOP politicians are now announcing plans to break their No Tax pledges just as we warned they would. After all, the word and honor of all but a very few senators and house members means nothing once election season ends.

Of course, common sense tells us that all governments need to spend and borrow less but they never will. After all, the long running recession/depression of the West means less tax revenue to governments because the taxable income of individual citizens is down dramatically.

The austerity meme is the false crisis solution being propagandized by the power elite in order to build public support for benefit cuts and wealth confiscation. This fake austerity solution sounds reasonable but it isn't because governments will continue to spend and borrow. They plan to make up the difference by cutting government services and programs and increasing taxes to draconian confiscatory levels.

Equal Opportunity For Once

While the top echelons of government bureaucrats just like the privileged big business corporate elites will be exempt except for minor personal tax increases, the burden will as always fall on the poor and middle classes.

The only good news is throughout the West many low- and middle-level government employees and bureaucrats will finally get a bitter taste of what they have been dishing out to those of us in the productive private sector for decades. There are few new jobs available in the private sector and private industry will seldom hire ex-government employees, for obvious reasons.

This means those on the government dole, whether working, on welfare programs or in unions, will do anything to keep their checks coming. Therefore, as part of the "necessary" austerity measures their generous healthcare and retirement plans can be cut, as well as salaries, as most of these wards of the state will still vote for the big government parties. They have no other alternatives. Thus, their core constituency status will remain while they now take their turn being screwed.

Simply watch what is happening to benefits, healthcare and retirement benefits in Greece, Italy and Spain and you'll see the future in the United States.

Benefit Theft

Many in the US will find themselves increasingly "means tested" out of their promised and guaranteed Social Security benefits and forced back into permanent life-long contributions.

Austerity is just another word for nothing left to lose to the government. It will end when your wealth, benefits and assets are gone. This false meme will be replaced with another once all of the available wealth, income and gold can be taken and your promised benefits cut to whatever degree possible short of generating violence and revolution.

Therefore, any supposed credibility in the success of politically enforced austerity is just another excuse to get more of your hard earned dollars. Like democracyglobal warming and Keynesian economics, this is just another scam meme to con you out of personal wealth and liberties.

Austerity

 

The Bankruptcy of The United States

November 30th, 2012 by

http://www.apfn.net/doc-100_bankruptcy.htm

United States Congressional Record, March 17, 1993 Vol. 33, page H-1303

Speaker-Rep. James Traficant, Jr. (Ohio) addressing the House:

(Quote) "Mr. Speaker, we are here now in chapter 11… Members of Congress are official trustees presiding over the greatest reorganization of any Bankrupt entity in world history, the U.S. Government. We are setting forth hopefully, a blueprint for our future. There are some who say it is a coroner's report that will lead to our demise.

 It is an established fact that the United States Federal Government has been dissolved by the Emergency Banking Act, March 9, 1933, 48 Stat. 1, Public Law 89-719; declared by President Roosevelt, being bankrupt and insolvent. H.J.R. 192, 73rd Congress m session June 5, 1933 – Joint Resolution To Suspend The Gold Standard and Abrogate The Gold Clause dissolved the Sovereign Authority of the United States and the official capacities of all United States Governmental Offices, Officers, and
Departments and is further evidence that the United States Federal Government exists today in name only.
 
The receivers of the United States Bankruptcy are the International Bankers, via the United Nations, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. All United States Offices, Officials, and Departments are now operating within a de facto status in name only under Emergency War Powers.

With the Constitutional Republican form of Government now dissolved, the receivers of the Bankruptcy have adopted a new form of government for the United States. This new form of government is known as a Democracy, being an established Socialist/Communist order under a new governor for America. This act was instituted and established by transferring and/or placing the Office of the Secretary of Treasury to that of the Governor of the International Monetary Fund.

Public Law 94-564, page 8, Section H.R. 13955 reads in part:

"The U.S. Secretary of Treasury receives no compensation for representing the United States."

Gold and silver were such a powerful money during the founding of the united states of America, that the founding fathers declared that only gold  or silver coins can be "money" in America. Since gold and silver coinage were heavy and inconvenient for a lot of transactions, they were stored inbanks and a claim check was issued as a money substitute. People traded their coupons as money, or "currency." Currency is not money, but a money substitute. Redeemable currency must promise to pay a dollar equivalent in gold or silver money. Federal Reserve Notes (FRNs) make no such promises, and are not "money." A Federal Reserve Note is a debt obligation of the federal United States government, not "money?'

The federal United States government and the U.S. Congress were not and have never been authorized by the Constitution for the united states of America to issue currency of any kind, but only lawful money, -gold and silver coin. It is essential that we comprehend the distinction between real money and paper money substitute. One cannot get rich by accumulating money
substitutes, one can only get deeper into debt. We the People no longer have any "money." Most Americans have not been paid any "money" for a very long time, perhaps not in their entire life. Now do you comprehend why you feel broke? Now, do you understand why you are "bankrupt," along with the rest of the country?

Federal Reserve Notes (FRNs) are unsigned checks written on a closed account. FRNs are an inflatable paper system designed to create debt through inflation (devaluation of currency). when ever there is an increase of the supply of a money substitute in the economy without a corresponding increase in the gold and silver backing, inflation occurs.

Inflation is an invisible form of taxation that irresponsible governments inflict on their citizens. The Federal Reserve Bank who controls the supply and movement of FRNs has everybody fooled. They have access to an unlimited supply of FRNs, paying only for the printing costs of what they need. FRNs are nothing more than promissory notes for U.S. Treasury securities
(T-Bills) – a promise to pay the debt to the Federal Reserve Bank.

There is a fundamental difference between "paying" and "discharging" a debt. To pay a debt, you must pay with value or substance (i.e. gold, silver, barter or a commodity). With FRNs, you can only discharge a debt.  You cannot pay a debt with a debt currency system. You cannot service a debt with a currency that has no backing in value or substance. No contract in
Common law is valid unless it involves an exchange of "good & valuable consideration." Un-payable debt transfers power and control to the sovereign power structure that has no interest in money, law, equity or justice because they have so much wealth already.

Their lust is for power and control. Since the inception of central banking, they have controlled the fates of nations.

The Federal Reserve System is based on the Canon law and the principles of sovereignty protected in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. In fact, the international bankers used a "Canon Law Trust" as their model, adding stock and naming it a "Joint Stock Trust." The U.S. Congress had passed a law making it illegal for any legal "person" to duplicate a "Joint Stock Trust" in 1873. The Federal Reserve Act was legislated post-facto (to 1870), although post-facto laws are strictly forbidden by the Constitution. [1:9:3]

The Federal Reserve System is a sovereign power structure separate and distinct from the federal United States government. The Federal Reserve is a maritime lender, and/or maritime insurance underwriter to the federal United States operating exclusively under Admiralty/Maritime law. The lender or underwriter bears the risks, and the Maritime law compelling specific
performance in paying the interest, or premiums are the same.

 Assets of the debtor can also be hypothecated (to pledge something as a security without taking possession of it.) as security by the lender or underwriter. The Federal Reserve Act stipulated that the interest on the debt was to be paid in gold. There was no stipulation in the Federal Reserve Act for ever paying the principle.

 Prior to 1913, most Americans owned clear, allodial title to property, free and clear of any liens or mortgages until the Federal Reserve Act (1913) "Hypothecated" all property within the federal United States to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, -in which the Trustees (stockholders) held legal title. The U.S. citizen (tenant, franchisee) was registered as a
"beneficiary" of the trust via his/her birth certificate. In 1933, the federal United States hypothecated all of the present and future properties, assets and labor of their "subjects," the 14th Amendment U.S. citizen, to the Federal Reserve System.

 In return, the Federal Reserve System agreed to extend the federal United States corporation all the credit "money substitute" it needed. Like any other debtor, the federal United States government had to assign collateral and security to their creditors as a condition of the loan. Since the federal United States didn't have any assets, they assigned the private property of their "economic slaves", the U.S. citizens as collateral against the un-payable federal debt. They also pledged the unincorporated federal territories, national parks forests, birth certificates, and nonprofit organizations, as collateral against the federal debt. All has already been transferred as payment to the international bankers.

Unwittingly, America has returned to its pre-American Revolution, feudal roots whereby all land is held by a sovereign and the common people had no rights to hold allodial title to property. Once again, We the People are the tenants and sharecroppers renting our own property from a Sovereign in the guise of the Federal Reserve Bank. We the people have exchanged one master
for another.

 This has been going on for over eighty years without the "informed knowledge" of the American people, without a voice protesting loud enough.  Now it's easy to grasp why America is fundamentally bankrupt.

 Why don't more people own their properties outright?

Why are 90% of Americans mortgaged to the hilt and have little or no assets after all debts and liabilities have been paid?

Why does it feel like you are working harder and harder and getting less and less?

We are reaping what has been sown, and the results of our harvest is a painful bankruptcy, and a foreclosure on American property, precious liberties, and a way of life. Few of our elected representatives in Washington, D.C. have dared to tell the truth. The federal United States is bankrupt. Our children will inherit this un-payable debt, and the tyranny to enforce paying it.

 America has become completely bankrupt in world leadership, financial credit and its reputation for courage, vision and human rights. This is an undeclared economic war, bankruptcy, and economic slavery of the most corrupt order! Wake up America! Take back your Country."

Are you connecting the dots now, fellow patriots? Now you should understand why your house deed identifies you as a tenet. Now, you should understand why your so called elected representatives don’t give a flip what you think or say. Now you should understand who controls the elections and everything else in this land of slaves. Land of the free, and the home of the brave, MY ASS! I would bet there is not one in fifty thousand of you willing to get even. Support the three percent, as they are your only hope of regaining your freedom. Support the alternative media, we are your only source of truth. OR, you can kiss ass with the local tyrants in law enforcement. That is, until they are ordered to round you up and transport you to a detention center. SEE, http://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com/2012/11/30/800-concentration-camps-in-the-usa/

By recklessly printing, borrowing and spending money, our authorities are absolutely shredding confidence in the U.S. dollar.  The rest of the world is watching this nonsense, and at some point they are going to give up on the U.S. dollar and throw their hands up in the air.  When that happens, it is going to be absolutely catastrophic for the U.S. economy.  Right now, we export a lot of our inflation.  Each year, we buy far more from the rest of the world than they buy from us, and so the rest of the world ends up with giant piles of U.S. dollars.  This works out pretty well for them, because the U.S. dollar is the primary reserve currency of the world and is used in international trade far more than any other currency is.  Back in 1999, the percentage of foreign exchange reserves in U.S. dollars peaked at 71 percent, and since then it has slid back to 62.2 percent.  But that is still an overwhelming amount.  We can print, borrow and spend like crazy because the rest of the world is there to soak up our excess dollars because they need them to trade with one another.  But what will happen someday if the rest of the world decides to reject the U.S. dollar?  At that point we would see a tsunami of U.S. dollars come flooding back to this country.  Just take a moment and think of the worst superstorm that you can possibly imagine, and then replace every drop of rain with a dollar bill.  The giant currency superstorm that will eventually hit this nation will be far worse than that.

Most Americans don’t realize that there are far more dollars in use in the rest of the world than in the United States itself.  The following is from a scholarly article by Linda Goldberg

The dollar is a major form of cash currency around the world. The majority of dollar banknotes are estimated to be held outside the US. More than 70% of hundred-dollar notes and nearly 60% of twenty- and fifty-dollar notes are held abroad, while two-thirds of all US banknotes have been in circulation outside the country since 1990

For decades we have been exporting gigantic quantities of our currency.

So what would happen if that process suddenly reversed and massive piles of dollars started coming back into the country?

It is frightening to think about.

Well, I guess the key is to get the rest of the world to continue to have confidence in the U.S. dollar so that will never happen, right?

Unfortunately, there are lots of signs that the rest of the world is accelerating their move away from the U.S. dollar.

For example, it was recently announced that the BRICS countries are developing their own version of the World Bank

The BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) bloc has begun planning its own development bank and a new bailout fund which would be created by pooling together an estimated $240 billion in foreign exchange reserves, according to diplomatic sources. To get a sense of how significant the proposed fund would be, the fund would be larger than the combined Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of about 150 countries, according to Russia and India Report.

And as I noted in a previous article, over the past few years there have been a whole host of new international currency agreements that encourage the use of national currencies over the U.S. dollar.  The following are just a few examples…

1. China and Germany (See Here)

2. China and Russia (See Here)

3. China and Brazil (See Here)

4. China and Australia (See Here)

5. China and Japan (See Here)

6. India and Japan (See Here)

7. Iran and Russia (See Here)

8. China and Chile (See Here)

9. China and the United Arab Emirates (See Here)

10. China, Brazil, Russia, India and South Africa (See Here)

Will this movement soon become a stampede away from the U.S. dollar?

That is a very important question.

But you don’t hear anything about this in the U.S. media and our politicians are not talking about this at all.

Meanwhile, our “leaders” seem to be doing everything that they can to destroy confidence in the U.S. dollar.  The Federal Reserve is printing money like there is no tomorrow, and the federal governmentcontinues to run up trillion dollar deficits year after year.

They do not seem to understand that they are systematically destroying the U.S. financial system.

Other world leaders get it.  For example, Russian President Vladimir Putin once said the following…

“Unreasonable expansion of the budget deficit, accumulation of the national debt – are as destructive as an adventurous stock market game.

During the time of the Soviet Union the role of the state in economy was made absolute, which eventually lead to the total non-competitiveness of the economy. That lesson cost us very dearly. I am sure no one would want history to repeat itself.”

Wow.

Why can’t most of our politicians see how destructive debt is?

What the federal government continues to do is absolutely insane.  The national debt increased by more than 24 billion dollars on the day after Thanksgiving this year.  But utter disaster has not struck yet, and most Americans are not really that concerned about the debt.  So things just keep rolling along.

And of course our national debt of $16,309,738,056,362.44 is nothing when compared to the future liabilities that our federal government is facing.  Just check out what a recent article in the Wall Street Journal had to say about all this…

The actual liabilities of the federal government—including Social Security, Medicare, and federal employees’ future retirement benefits—already exceed $86.8 trillion, or 550% of GDP. For the year ending Dec. 31, 2011, the annual accrued expense of Medicare and Social Security was $7 trillion. Nothing like that figure is used in calculating the deficit. In reality, the reported budget deficit is less than one-fifth of the more accurate figure.

Other economists paint an even gloomier picture.  According to economist Niall Ferguson, the U.S. government is facing future unfunded liabilities of 238 trillion dollars.

So where are we going to get all that money?

Well, why don’t we just print more money than ever before so that the U.S. government can borrow and spend more money than ever before?

Don’t laugh.  That is actually what some of the top economists in the country are actually recommending.

The most famous economic journalist in the entire country, Paul Krugman of the New York Times, is boldly proclaiming that the solution to all of our problems is to print, borrow and spend a lot more money.  He insists that there is no reason to fear that the giant mountain of debt that we are accumulating will someday collapse the system…

For we have our own currency — and almost all of our debt, both private and public, is denominated in dollars. So our government, unlike the Greek government, literally can’t run out of money. After all, it can print the stuff. So there’s almost no risk that America will default on its debt — I’d say no risk at all if it weren’t for the possibility that Republicans would once again try to hold the nation hostage over the debt ceiling.

But if the U.S. government prints money to pay its bills, won’t that lead to inflation? No, not if the economy is still depressed.

Now, it’s true that investors might start to expect higher inflation some years down the road. They might also push down the value of the dollar. Both of these things, however, would actually help rather than hurt the U.S. economy right now: expected inflation would discourage corporations and families from sitting on cash, while a weaker dollar would make our exports more competitive.

Of course what he is prescribing is complete and utter madness.

At some point this con game is going to collapse and the rest of the world is going to say a big, fat, resounding “NO” to the U.S. dollar.

Why should they continue to use a currency that is becoming extremely unstable and that is constantly being manipulated?

And when the rest of the world rejects the U.S. dollar, the value of the dollar will drop like a rock because there will be far less global demand for it.

In addition, if the rest of the world is not using the U.S. dollar for trade any longer, other nations will cease to soak up our excess currency and huge mountains of our currency that are floating around out there will start flooding back to our shores.

At that point we will be looking at inflation unlike anything we have ever seen before.  The era of cheap imports will be over and we will pay far more for everything from oil to the foreign-made plastic trinkets that we buy at Wal-Mart.

Most Americans don’t even know what a “reserve currency” is, but when the U.S. dollar loses reserve currency status it is going to unleash a nightmare that most economists cannot even imagine.

So enjoy this holiday season while you can.  There are still lots and lots of cheap imports filling the shelves of our stores.

Once the coming giant currency superstorm strikes, we will dearly wish for the good old days of 2012.

Yes, the U.S. dollar is alive and ticking for now.  But at the pace that our authorities are abusing it, I would not say that things are looking good for a long and healthy lifespan.

Currency Superstorm

Disarming The American People: Here’s How It Will Be Done!

November 29th, 2012 by

CONFICATION

By Truther

Incrementalism has proved depressingly effective as a tool for getting most people to quietly surrender their rights piecemeal. For gradually habituating them to an ever-diminishing circle of liberty. When the circle finally closes and their rights no longer exist at all, they hardly notice – because by that time, most of their rights have already been taken.

The final surrender is met with a shrug rather than a scream of outrage.

Think how Americans have been habituated to arbitrary search and seizure. Something like the TSA would simply not have been tolerated if it came out of the blue sky circa 1980. And no, the terrr attacks ofnineleven did not “change everything.” Getting people to accept “sobriety checkpoints” beginning around 1980 changed everything. Accept that – and something like Gate Rape is inevitable.

The same process works just as well when it comes to dismantling due process – and removing limits on what the government may not do to us. We didn’t get to legal strip searches for jaywalking or littering in one fell swoop. Nor rendition, torture as policy – and presidential kill lists. It is a matter of getting them – getting us – to  tolerate “A” so that “B” will be accepted in turn.

This is how the citizens of the United States will be disarmed.

No sudden, mass ban or attempt at confiscation – because that would probably lead to open violence on a large scale and they – people like Dear Leader Obama and his Vyshinsky, AG Eric Holder, know this.

So, instead, they will first pass “reasonable” restrictions.

They will target not guns – just dangerous guns. So easy to demagogue anything with, say, a high-capacity magazine. Or which looks “military.” Think how the ground has already been ceded by mainstream “gun rights” groups like the NRA – which invariably talk about “sportsmen” and “hunting.” Who needs an AR-15 (or Sig 220) to hunt?

Open carry will be next. How many millions of Clovers would support a ban?

Next, they’ll lobby for a new law (or just issue a fatwa) that makes it much harder to get a CC permit. Such as at a judge’s discretion. And only if you have a “legitimate” purpose. Self-defense will not be considered a legitimate purpose.

But the big one – tied to Obamacare – will be the transformation of gun ownership into a public health issue.

The assault on smoking (and lately, soft drinks) should have alerted people – but as with “sobriety checkpoints,” most people readily supported the imposition of massive taxes on smokers because, after all, it is unhealthy to smoke. And of course, they didn’t smoke. So their rights were not on the table (foolish them). They – most people – never see that an attack on anyone’s rights is an attack on their rights.They are easily gulled by their moralistic fetishes – their disapproval of some concrete thing other people do which they don’t like. Not seeing that if the government can ban (or control or regulate) this than it certainly can ban, control or regulate that. The particulars don’t matter. The principle is everything.

Thus, smoking has been anathematized – and rendered exorbitantly expensive to partake of. Not an outright ban – not yet. But ever closer, every year.

And guns? It will be argued it is unhealthy to have a gun in the house. There will be talk of all the suicides and domestic violence (red herrings, these – but exceptionally effective tools of emotional manipulation).

Inevitably, the children will come into play.

It will be argued that anyone who possesses a gun must also possess insurance. Just as car owners are required to buy insurance; just as we are soon to be forced to buy health insurance. The same arguments will be used – because they’ve already been accepted. Thus, just as it is not illegal to have a car – so long as you buy insurance for it – it will not be illegal (yet) to own a gun. So long as you are “properly insured.”

That will be the first step.

The second step ought to be obvious. Legal gun ownership will rendered increasingly unaffordable.

As with collectivized car and health insurance, the insurance you will be forced to buy in order to keep a gun will be based on the costs imposed by the collective. It will not matter that you handle your gun safely. Because others have not, you will be made to pay.

People can afford to buy a $500 rifle or pistol. How many will be able to afford paying $500 a year to lawfully keep that rifle or pistol? How many will be able to afford keeping more than one rifle or pistol? Can you see where this is headed? Is it not brilliant in its subtlety?

 

CONFICATION

Insurance costs have already proved their effectiveness at limiting the number of vehicles the average person can afford to keep. I’ve written before about the effect mandatory insurance has had on hobbyists. It used to be easy (and legal) to keep a “parts car” or “project car” because other than the costs of buying it and fixing it up, there were no other costs. So long as you didn’t put it on the road, you didn’t have to insure it. In numerous areas around the country, you must now keep valid tags – and insurance – on every single vehicle, even those kept in a garage or in your back yard. If not, the vehicle is subject to confiscation.

Exactly the same tactics will be deployed against firearms. And it will be impossible to fight – because the fight over the principle was lost long ago. How will anyone argue against mandatory gun insurance when they have already accepted mandatory car insurance and now mandatory health insurance?

In a very short time, the government will have effectively disarmed most people without ever having had to push for an outright ban. The small handful of people who still possess arms will only be able to possess a few types and be very limited in what they can (legally) do with them.

Dealing with them will easy. Because there will be so few.

And because they will have already conceded the point anyhow.

Throw it in the Woods?

Global Growth Woes – Here Is Where the Blame Lies

November 28th, 2012 by

http://www.cnbc.com/id/49880480/

By: Michael Ivanovitch

President, MSI Global

When, towards the end of World War II, the British economist John Maynard Keynes led his country’s delegation to negotiate in Bretton Woods the IMF’s charter (articles of agreement), he argued that the stability of the international monetary system and world economy required that surplus and deficit countries should be held equally responsible to balance their trade accounts.

Keynes feared that America, relatively unscathed after nearly five years of brutal conflict, would be flooding Europe with its exports, creating a shortage of dollars and obstructing the recovery of a starving and war-ravaged continent.

As it turned out, Keynes’s worries about the possibility that America would selfishly pursue mercantilist policies were misplaced. Washington quickly moved to help Europe get back on its feet with a $13 billion Marshall Plan (formally known as the European Recovery Program) and kept its markets open for European goods and services.

During the three years of the Marshall Plan, the economies of 17 European countries benefiting from its assistance grew between 15 percent and 20 percent, and, largely as a result of growing imports from Europe, the U.S. trade balance recorded its first postwar trade deficit of $2.3 billion (0.2 percent of GDP) in 1971.

The US Remains Engine of World Economy

The U.S. is still the largest buyer of goods and services produced around the world. In the first nine months of this year, America’s trade deficit with China, Japan and Germany accounted for nearly two-thirds of its $559 billion trade gap. 

Keynes must be turning in his grave: Even with a feeble 2.3 percent GDP growth, America is the engine of world economy, while the second, third and fourth-largest world economies are living off their trade surpluses with the U.S. and the rest of the world.

Those wondering about what went wrong with the world economy should look no further. With their huge trade surpluses, ranging from $86 billion (Japan) to $217 billion (Germany), these three countries – one-fourth of world GDP – are making no net contribution to global economic growth.  Worse: they are, in fact, a drag on world economy.

And there is no end to this. Almost by design, Japan and Germany are export-led economies. Neither country wants to abandon this growth strategy by generating more demand and output from their domestic spending. China apparently wants to get off the export bandwagon, but it will take some time to significantly change the composition of its economic growth.

Japan’s Structurally Weak Domestic Demand

In terms of Keynes’s argument for symmetry in trade adjustment obligations of deficit and surplus countries, Japan has been – and still is – the most difficult case. Over the last 10 years, for example, about one-half of Japan’s economic growth came from its trade surpluses.  During that period, exports – 8 percent of GDP – grew at an average annual rate of 6 percent, while household consumption – 60 percent of GDP – edged up only 0.9 percent.

These numbers clearly show that it is almost impossible to grow on the basis of domestic demand if its largest component is in virtual stagnation. And Tokyo is not doing much to change that. Ever since the “bubble economy” burst in the early 1990s, a succession of Japanese governments chose to finance public sector investments – about 4 percent of GDP – by building the proverbial “bridges and highways to nowhere” instead of stimulating household consumption. No wonder the economy largely stagnated over the last 20 years with an average annual growth of less than 1 percent.

(Read More: What Will Save the Japanese Economy?)

Admittedly, it is difficult to stimulate private consumption in an economy with declining and rapidly aging population. A study, published last January by Japan's National Institute of Population and Social Security Research, forecasts that the country's population will shrink by one-third over the next 50 years as a result of an alarmingly low birthrate of 1.39 per woman of childbearing age. The study also shows that, at this point, it looks like a mission impossible to even slow down the population decline, because Japan would have to raise its birthrate to 2.1 per woman.

It is obvious that to stabilize the economy Japan would have to address, with a great sense of urgency, the problem of its worsening demography. Only a steadily rising trend in net family formation and birthrates would underpin private consumption and residential investment (63 percent of GDP) to gradually wean the economy off its excessive dependence on export sales.

But that, unfortunately, does not seem likely anytime soon. Barring more dangerous developments in Sino-Japanese relations, Japan’s sinking exports to China (down 14 percent in the year to September) will just be dumped somewhere else.

China’s Slowly Changing Growth Patterns 

China will probably do better than Japan in changing the current structure of its economy.  With an apparent determination to anchor economic growth around household consumption and investments, Beijing wants to minimize trade frictions with the U.S. and Europe as it becomes one of the key players in world commerce and finance.

These changes will take time, though. One has to remember that most of China’s manufacturing sector was set up to serve exports, based on low wages and a favorable tax treatment of joint ventures with foreign companies. 

Still, some important changes are happening already. Rapidly escalating wage and non-wage labor costs are making China increasingly expensive as a manufacturing export base. Some European companies are even repatriating their manufacturing from China due to the shortage – and rapidly rising costs – of skilled labor.

China’s current growth patterns are also likely to change as the planned reduction of large income inequalities and a more extensive welfare system – two of China’s new leader’s top priorities – are likely to stimulate household consumption (a relatively small 35 percent of GDP) since families would have to save less for education, healthcare and retirement.

(Read More: Why China’s New Conservative Leaders Will Be Reformists)

And while these structural changes are taking hold, China’s trading partners could sell more of their products and services by insisting on better access to Chinese markets. Beijing will have to yield because its own companies are seeking to establish trading and manufacturing positions in various countries around the world.

Obama’s Wrong Number in Europe

While China’s large trade surpluses are a relatively recent problem, Germany’s systematically export-led economy has been a destabilizing factor for Europe and the rest of the world since the early 1970s.

(Read More: Why the US-China Trade Spat Is Just Political Posturing)

President Obama learned all about it when he was trying to rev up the U.S. economy during his election campaign. Apparently thinking that he solved former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger’s old riddle – “Who do I call if I want to call Europe” – Obama hit the wall when he rang up that number in Berlin to ask for less austerity and more economic stimulus to protect one-fifth of American exports to the E.U.

Not only did the German Chancellor Merkel refuse to oblige, but she also haughtily dismissed American entreaties by saying that “it made no sense to be adding new debt to old debt.” And all that from a lady Obama decorated with the Presidential Medal of Freedom, America’s highest civilian honor, in June 2011.

But Obama was right to ask Germany to buy more from its trading partners, because Germany had plenty of room to stimulate the economy and stop living off the rest of the world. With a virtually balanced budget, record trade surpluses (6 percent of GDP), stable and low inflation, and borrowing costs of its public sector at a record-low 1.3 percent, Germany should temper its austerity mantra and buy more goods and services from some of the hard-pressed and heavily indebted euro zone countries.

RELATED LINKS

Germany, of course, won’t do that. A low unemployment rate, and a relatively placid social scene, will again allow Germany to ride out the euro zone recession on the back of exports.

Don’t Hold Your Breath for the G20

What can be done about the fact that 25 percent of the world economy makes no net contribution to global economic growth and acts as a drag on the economies of its trading partners?  The answer is: not much, if anything.

The irony is that the world has a forum to deal with such problems. The G20 – a group of the world’s 20 leading economies, representing 90 percent of global GDP and two-thirds of the world population – has been set up to promote economic growth through better coordination of economic policies. In other words, through policies designed to reduce destabilizing trade imbalances in the world economy.

The need to implement better coordination of macroeconomic policies was one of the key decisions of the G20 meeting in the Mexican resort of Los Cabos last June. And what happened?

The G20 sherpas (representatives of the heads of state and government) had nothing to say about that when they met in late October to monitor the implementation of their bosses’ decisions, because there were no coordinated policy measures to support the weakening world economy undermined by excessively unbalanced trade flows.

The sherpas nevertheless congratulated themselves on the “good work” and passed the baton to Russians who will take on the G20 presidency next January.

But expect no more to be done in the imperial splendor of Saint-Petersburg’s Constantin Palace in September 2013 than the repeat of empty talk – at great taxpayers’ expense – of previous meetings.

That will suit Beijing, Tokyo and Berlin just fine. As in the past, they know they can bet on one thing and win: Driven by an extraordinarily loose monetary policy, the U.S. economy will continue to be their main export market for the foreseeable future.

Capitalism, Socialism and Human Dignity

November 26th, 2012 by

As Published at the Daily Bell

http://www.thedailybell.com/28360/Tibor-Machan-Capitalism-Socialism-and-Human-Dignity

 

Socialism

 

Capitalism means human individual freedom, especially in the sphere of striving to become prosperous. To defend the system is a challenge because of its ties to individualism, even ethical egoism. For centuries the ethical and moral guidelines people have been urged to live by have been some kind of communitarianism, such as altruism, utilitarianism, socialismcommunism, etc. The individualism associated with capitalism had been thought as atomistic, seeing people as isolated from and indeed hostile toward one another.

Socialism is the political economic order that sees human beings as part of a larger entity, society, to which they are all beholden and which they must serve not of their own free will but as a matter of coerced duty.

The common sense appeal of communal systems as guiding human action comes from the historical need for collective conduct in the face of threats from groups that would overpower those who are vulnerable. (F. A. Hayekmakes this point well in his works.) Once it turned out that individuals who unite of their free will provide better protection to the group, individualism began to gain support. It is better suited to human life, with individuals being the source of solutions to most problems.

In time individualism surpassed other schools of ethical thought, especially once it became evident that voluntarily choosing to be part of a group − tribe, clan, nation − ensured greater loyalty than is possible via coercive unisons.

It also became evident that all the talk about the need to unite and sacrifice for the group has served largely to secure power for a few over the rest. Thus individualism became more civilized, less primitive. As public choice theory suggests, efforts to serve the public interest usually come to no more than serving the interest of influential, powerful people at the expense of others.

Protesting about having to serve the public or community is difficult because the alternative, of serving oneself, the individual, seems to be arbitrary and self-indulgent. But today a sophisticated ethical (as opposed to psychological) egoism, such as what we find in David L. Norton's Personal Destinies, A Philosophy of Ethical Individualism(Princeton UP, 1976), can overcome all known objections to individualism. (See, also, Tibor Machan's Classical Individualism [Routledge, 1998].) This, however, hasn't reached popular consciousness. Iinstead, most people are schizophrenic and preach collectivism while practicing individualism.

The individualism or egoism forged most fully by Norton, as well as by Ayn Rand in her book, The Virtue ofSelfishness, A New Concept of Egoism (1967), and others, stresses an Aristotelian idea of the human individual, not a Hobbesian one (which is found mostly in economics). An implication of this is that virtues such as generosity, kindness, gregariousness, etc., are entirely compatible with seeking to flourish as the human individual one is and self-interest is understood by reference to what is proper for a rational animal, not a beast driven to seek power over others.

This development, though not yet widely acknowledged, puts an end to the charge that egoism or individualism, as a central element of free market capitalism, must be a crass, anti-social viewpoint and must generate a social climate of mutual hostility and alienation.

When it comes to competition in the free market, for example, the model isn't the boxing ring, as widely assumed in caricatures of capitalism, but the marathon race! Thus, for instance, friendship would easily be seen as fully compatible with individualism, indeed, implicit in it. (See also the work of the philosopher Neera Badhwar for this.)

The dignity of the human individual is far more elevated than that of the human social animal as seen in socialism and other collectivist political regimes. The hallmark of this social-political outlook is that individuals come together voluntarily and aren't herded into communities by rulers or dictators.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

I admit that the words (Human Dignity) caught my eye while searching for today’s post because that is the most desired attribute of a society, as there is no real human dignity in any form of human relationships that impose generosity as a matter of responsibility. I either give freely, or not at all, and have no shame from judging who is worthy, and who is not. I have had too many men working for me in my life not to opine who earned their wage and who did not. I maintain that it is the prerogative of the employer to set the level of compensation, and the responsibility of the worker to accept or reject it. Once accepted, I expect the worker to get the job done right, as fast as possible without burning himself out, or risking injury. After all, IT’S MY MONEY! All other forms of communitarianism are for the dull and ignorant who refuse to accept responsibility for their actions, and have no self-respect.

Whenever I have worked for another man, I gave him more than he paid me as a matter of principal. Those people who have never performed manual labor in their life always seem to be the first to impose responsibility on others. Have you ever known a politician with a callus on his hands?

NDAA 2013 Lets Identify The Traitors to The US Constitution

November 24th, 2012 by

NOTE: Please go to this link and watch the Rand Paul video. Activist Post

By Eric Blair

By now anyone who pays attention to politics knows that the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2012 contained a provision that allows for the indefinite detention of U.S. citizens without charge or trial.

Section 1021 of the 2012 NDAA states that anyone suspected of being involved in terrorism or “belligerent acts” against the U.S. can be detained by the military under the so-called Authorization for Use of Military Force, including American citizens.

In other words, the war on terror has been officially declared on U.S. soil and everyone is now considered a potential combatant in this war.

Senator Lindsey Graham pretty much summed it up when he said, "The homeland is part of the battlefield and people can be held without trial whether an American citizen or not."

Even though this clause is a direct violation of citizen's rights under the 6th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, there was scarcely any dissent and hardly a peep from the corporate media when Obama signed it into law under the cover of darkness late on New Year's Eve 2011.

This year Senator Rand Paul once again blocked the passage of the NDAA for 2013, which the Senate hoped to rush through before the Thanksgiving recess. Using a filibuster, Paul is attempting to force a vote on his amendment to exempt American citizens from the indefinite detention clause.

Rand Paul's amendment simply reaffirms the 6th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution:

A citizen of the United States who is captured or arrested in the United States and detained by the Armed Forces of the United States pursuant to the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107–40) shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.

Compare that to the 6th Amendment of the Constitution:

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.

It's sad that it is so difficult to get elected officials to debate, let alone vote on, legislation that is in direct violation to the Constitution that they swore an oath to uphold. But these are certainly Orwellian times where normal thinking no longer applies.

As Rand Paul points out in the video below about the 2012 NDAA vote, “The senate voted 55 to 45 to allow indefinite detention of US citizens without jury trial. We have become Orwellian without even knowing it.”

When the Senate resumes after recess, the NDAA 2013 will likely pass even with a recorded vote on Paul's amendment, but at least the traitors will put themselves on display for all to see. 

If there are any true oath keepers in positions of power, this would be a perfect time to arrest those who vote against this amendment. Their treason to the Constitution couldn't be any clearer.

FREEDOM from tyrannical governance, is not a gift, it is the product of men willing to give their life through constant battle with those who seek power in government. (Olddog) One does not obtain freedom by pursuing riches or entertainment; it is taken by force and held onto like it’s a life preserver in the oceans storms. It’s the food that nourishes your children’s bodies and mind. It is the one single thing that gives your aging parents comfort as their strength deserts them. Call you congress critters and senators, and tell them to support Rand Paul’s fight for freedom, or you will spend the rest of your life denigrating their name. Tell them you will pray for the Lord God to curse them and their families, and make them terrified to walk the streets of America. Talk to them like they are the scum of the earth if they support  the NDAA-2012. Always remember, to judge a politician by what they do, and not by what they say.

 

 

CIVIL WAR IS COMING!

November 23rd, 2012 by

WASHINGTON (Reuters) –

The United States reversed policy on Wednesday and said it would back launching talks on a treaty to regulate arms sales as long as the talks operated by consensus, a stance critics said gave every nation a veto.

The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush's administration, which had opposed such a treaty on the grounds that national controls were better.

On Wednesday Obama Took the First Major Step in a Plan to Ban All Firearms in the United States. The Obama administration intends to force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for US citizens through the signing of international treaties with foreign nations.

By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama administration can use the US State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress. Once the US Government signs these international treaties, all US citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign governments.

These are laws that have been developed and promoted by organizations such as the United Nations and individuals such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. The laws are designed and intended to lead to the complete ban and confiscation of all firearms. It will never happen!

The Obama administration is attempting to use tactics and methods of gun control that will inflict major damage to our 2nd Amendment before US citizens even understand what has happened. Obama can appear before the public and tell them that he does not intend to pursue any legislation (in the United States) that will lead to new gun control laws, while cloaked in secrecy, his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton is committing the US to international treaties and foreign gun control laws.

Does that mean Obama is telling the truth?

What it means is that there will be no publicized gun control debates in the media or votes in Congress. We will wake up one morning and find that the United States has signed a treaty that prohibits firearm and ammunition manufacturers from selling to the public.

We will wake up another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that prohibits any transfer of firearm ownership.

And then, we will wake up yet another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that requires US citizens to deliver any firearm they own to the local government collection and destruction center or face imprisonment.

This is not a joke nor a false warning. As sure as government health care will be forced on us by the Obama administration through whatever means necessary, so will gun control.

Please forward this message to others who may be concerned about the direction in which our country is headed. Straight into socialism if Obama has his way…

We are being led like a lamb to the slaughter (Socialism/Dictatorship).

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

I fully realize that people who do not study the issues that have affected the demise of freedom in America, are loathe to believe that America could once again crumble into social division, where brothers kill one another, and I admit that until I diligently studied these issues, it was inconceivable to me that family and real friends could ever murder one another. NOT ANYMORE!

My eyes have been opened by learning just how despicable it is to force a one size fits all political opinion on everyone. Especially, when it makes so much sense to peacefully separate. I can find absolutely nothing-illogical about two people separating when their world-views are incompatible. So, to take away my ability to defend my person is only going to happen after I’m dead, and have taken several enemies with me. You can take that to the bank! It has happened before, and it will happen again, right here in the good ole U.S.A.

By keeping up the present rush to equip yourself with weapons and ammo, you will be making a national statement that cannot, and will not be ignored.

Some may say that I am happy to end this elusion of solidarity in America, but they have little idea how big the lie is, that we ever had it. And when I discovered that American’s had been beguiled from the get go, it produced a grief in me that will never go away. Simply because I had bought the lie too!

Loving the American elusion is like loving an unfaithful wife and son. We have never governed America, and we never will. Self-government is an elusion that is as attractive as having the most beautiful woman alive, and just as impossible to obtain. The best we can do is to try to protect our politicians from the International Investment Bankers and their corporations, and only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can accomplish that, which is something that has never existed, or ever will.

When the SHTF, you’ll need a gun in your hand!

Obamas Gun Ban List Is Out

November 22nd, 2012 by

GunLaws.com

By Alan Korwin – Author Gun Laws Of America

Here it is, folks, and it is bad news. The framework for legislation is always laid, and the Democrats have the votes to pass anything they want to impose upon us. They really do not believe you need anything more than a brick to defend your home and family. Look at the list and see how many you own. Remember, it is registration, then confiscation. It has happened in the UK, in Australia, in Europe, in China, and what they have found is that for some reason the criminals do not turn in their weapons, but will know that you did.

Remember, the first step in establishing a dictatorship is to disarm the citizens.

Gun-ban list proposed. Slipping below the radar (or under the short-term memory cap), the Democrats have already leaked a gun-ban list, even under the Bush administration when they knew full well it had no chance of passage (HR 1022, 110th Congress). It serves as a framework for the new list the Brady’s plan to introduce shortly. I have an outline of the Brady’s current plans and targets of opportunity. It’s horrific.

They’re going after the courts, regulatory agencies, firearms dealers and statutes in an all out effort to restrict we the people. They’ve made little mention of criminals. Now more than ever, attention to the entire Bill of Rights is critical.

Gun bans will impact our freedoms under search and seizure, due process, confiscated property, states’ rights, free speech, right to assemble and more, in addition to the Second Amendment.

The Democrats current gun-ban-list proposal (final list will be worse):

Rifles (or copies or duplicates): M1 Carbine, Sturm Ruger Mini-14, AR-15, Bushmaster XM15, Armalite M15, AR-10, Thompson 1927, Thompson M1; AK, AKM, AKS, AK-47, AK-74, ARM, MAK90, NHM 90, NHM 91, SA 85, SA 93, VEPR; Olympic Arms PCR; AR70, Calico Liberty , Dragunov SVD Sniper Rifle or Dragunov SVU, Fabrique National FN/FAL, FN/LAR, or FNC, Hi-Point20Carbine, HK-91, HK-93, HK-94, HK-PSG-1, Thompson 1927 Commando, Kel-Tec Sub Rifle; Saiga, SAR-8, SAR-4800, SKS with detachable magazine, SLG 95, SLR 95 or 96, Steyr AU, Tavor, Uzi, Galil and Uzi Sporter, Galil Sporter, or Galil Sniper Rifle ( Galatz ).

Pistols (or copies or duplicates): Calico M-110, MAC-10, MAC-11, or MPA3, Olympic Arms OA, TEC-9, TEC-DC9, TEC-22 Scorpion, or AB-10, Uzi.

Shotguns (or copies or duplicates): Armscor 30 BG, SPAS 12 or LAW 12, Striker 12, Streetsweeper.

Catch-all category (for anything missed or new designs): A semiautomatic rifle that accepts a detachable magazine and has: (i) a folding or telescoping stock, (ii) a threaded barrel, (iii) a pistol grip (which includes ANYTHING that can serve as a grip, see below), (iv) a forward grip; or a barrel shroud.

Any semiautomatic rifle with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds (except tubular magazine .22 rim fire rifles).

A semiautomatic pistol that has the ability to accept a detachable magazine, and has: (i) a second pistol grip, (ii) a threaded barrel, (iii) a barrel shroud or (iv) can accept a detachable magazine outside of the pistol grip, and (v) a semiautomatic pistol with a fixed magazine that can accept more than 10 rounds.

A semiautomatic shotgun with: (i) a folding or telescoping stock, (ii) a pistol grip (see definition below), (iii) the ability to accept a detachable magazine or a fixed magazine capacity of more than 5 rounds, and (iv) a shotgun with a revolving cylinder. Frames or receivers for the above are included, along with conversion kits.

Attorney General gets carte blanche to ban guns at will: Under the proposal, the U.S. Attorney General can add any “semiautomatic rifle or shotgun originally designed for military or law enforcement use, or a firearm based on the design of such a firearm, that is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, as determined by the Attorney General.”

Note that Obama’s pick for this office, Eric Holder, wrote a brief in the Heller case supporting the position that you have no right to have a working firearm in your own home. In making this determination, the bill says, “there shall be a rebuttable presumption that a firearm procured for use by the United States military or any law enforcement agency is not particularly suitable for sporting purposes, and shall not be determined to be particularly suitable for sporting purposes solely because the firearm is suitable for use in a sporting event.” In plain English this means that ANY firearm ever obtained by federal officers or the military is not suitable for the public.

The last part is particularly clever, stating that a firearm doesn’t have a sporting purpose just because it can be used for sporting purpose —is that devious or what? And of course, “sporting purpose” is a rights infringement with no constitutional or historical support whatsoever, invented by domestic enemies of the right to keep and bear arms to further their cause of disarming the innocent.

"WHAT CAN I DO?"

I get asked this all the time.
People are frustrated with the infringements and abuses they see growing.

Do you want to fight back? Chip in? Have an effect?

If you want to help protect our gun rights, and freedom in general,
you can get started right now. It's easy.

Your state gun-rights group is listed in our National Directory (blue button on home page) — JOIN if you haven’t already, go to meetings, volunteer — that's really doing something — and you start having a real effect (plus it’s fun). Write the check. Join one of the many national gun-rights groups while you're at it, to increase your clout — and their power. And check this out if you're in my home state of Arizona.

Read and learn more, like, now. Do you feel powerless? Learn how to be more effective than you are. Take a look at my Politically Corrected Glossary, or the yellow Position Papers button on home page, for ideas you can use. This helps you talk the talk. Take a look at out our books on state gun rights for even more ideas. Find out more about why gun politics works the way it does. Learn about the Heller Case and the protections it has for the right to keep and bear arms. Read Jon Haupt's fabulous Five Minutes to Freedom brochure for free. 

Important: Build up your email list so you can forward important news to people you know. I have to tell you this? They can make phone calls, get active, and help the cause (you have my permission to forward anything I circulate, or anything on this site). Political action is rapidly becoming an email thing. Get real ambitious and make an e-list of all your legislators from my directory or the tool at the NRA or GOA, and here's the list journalists recommend. Now there's a great thing to have. Do the same for radio, TV and printed news in your town, they provide their eddresses if you just look — compile your own press list. Hey, I'll take a copy of any news media contacts you have, and put it to good use, send yours to me! Please.

Learn how to watch your own state legislature online for any gun or freedom-oriented bills you need to know about (and email the news to your friends). Dress nicely on a day (wear a tie??!) and actually attend a state legislative session or especially a committee meeting to see how it works. Get alerts automatically on proposed federal gun laws, with easy ways to contact Congress.

Go to lunch or dinner once a month with like-minded friends and focus your whole conversation on, "What can we do to protect our gun rights and expand freedom in our own community?" This is so powerful, so easy, and the results will surprise you. Go to dinner, it's the right to assemble, so important it's in the First Amendment. Come up with something you can actually do, and go do it. Visit your representatives and let them know what you think. Personal appearances have real impact

Check out the blue Billboards button on our home page for a great idea that will affect the public, at a modest cost. Also from our home page, download, print and ask your own state legislator to introduce the Gun-Free-Zone Liability Act, or the High School Marksmanship Act, or the Private Property Protection Act. Model legislation makes it easy for legislators to do the right thing. Try it. 

Take someone to the range and enjoy some safe shooting. Anyone. Take a journalist, your doctor, dentist, teacher, relative or anyone who has never been, and show them how much fun it is, how it isn't connected to crime, how other people — just like themselves — go to the range and it is good clean American sport. Always start newcomers with a .22, and be careful not to scare anyone off with a cannon-caliber the first time out (a bad mistake some macho types make, it can permanently scare off some people). Oh, and bring extra ammo, everyone always asks for it.

Increasingly unpopular among freedom-oriented people is the voting process. It seems hopeless, nothing changes, what can one vote do… But elections DO matter, as you can see in the current Obama administration. And people who think like we do far outnumber the takings coalition, but they got their numbers out, and beat us by a mere 3-1/2% spread in the national popular vote for president in 2008.Register your like-minded friends and get them to the polls. Ask a group you're part of to organize a registration drive. Radical thought, eh? Want to make sure your candidate choices are better? Become a precinct committeeman. What's that? Go find out.

Is that enough for a start?
Will you actually get up and 
do something… anything?
You can make a difference, and enjoy yourself.
Get to it!

Alan.

TO THE SECESSION NAYSAYERS

This diatribe is primarily, but not exclusively directed at those ignorant scumbags who voted for Obama, as there are still many classes of human scum who deserve the same mind whipping.

The ability to divorce a government or any other group, regardless of contract, when said contract empowers another to make your life a living hell, is not a right any sane person would give up, even up too, and including death. And, when a government denies we have any rights, they can go to hell.

Unlawful Constitutional revisions be damned!

What most all of the scumbags opposing secession don’t seem to understand is it’s not just the government we want to separate from, it’s also the most putrid form of humanity to ever walk the earth, namely, the people who think the sun shines in Obama’s ass, and have not the intelligence to learn that this federal government is not ruled by their petty desires, but by the International Banking Cartel. See:

  29 Signs That The Elite Are Transforming Society Into A Total Domination Control Grid and hundreds of other articles on http://anationbeguiled.com And  http://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com

Never think that this secession movement is because of the recent election, and don’t make the stupid mistake that we believe it will induce a peaceful separation, because we don’t for a minute think it will. We did this simply to show the Bastard we are not afraid to have our names added to his kill list, and to rub our defiance in his face.

It’s kind of like telling the enemy general’s aid when delivering a demand for our surrender, to go back and tell his superior to Go Fuck His Self.

What do you dumb asses think they put that web site up for? They want proof of identity of those who still have enough balls to complain. They don’t give a shit what your complaint is, they just want to know WHO has the guts to complain, because they are terrified of self-reliant subjects.

After all, what would happen if we discovered a leader we all trusted?

They could care less about us, or our complaints, all they really want is to get a kill list established of the more vocal of us who want a government and society that is compatible with freedom of expression and living a life free from being told how we must wipe our ass. For Christ sake people! Do you really want a f*^king government that demands and claims ownership of your children? That steals your wealth? That murders anyone who they disagree with?

What you assholes really do not understand is, it’s you who approve of this kind of governance that we want to be free from, because no democracy with people like you in it will ever be a free and safe place to live in.

Read the articles I have collected, and learn what it is that free men hate with an uncompromising passion.

Secession in These Unites States

November 21st, 2012 by

http://www.survivalblog.com/2012/11/letter-re-secession-in-these-unites-states.html

BY C.L. from Montana

James,

In response to the article involving the constitutionality of secession, a few other points to consider to perhaps gain a clearer view of the secession situation.  Understanding the individual states sovereignty in relation to the United states government is crucial.
 
1.  Abraham Lincoln claimed that the Union preceded the states which gave the Federal government authority over the states.  This view is incorrect as the original 13 colonies adopted the Articles of Confederation in which each state retained its freedom, independence, and sovereignty.  Each state delegated a portion of its sovereignty to the Union, thereby making the Union a creature of the state, not the other way around.  Further each state was by name acknowledged as free, independent, and sovereign in the Treaty of Paris in 1783.
 
2.  Sovereignty is indivisible.  A portion of a states authority, or power may be delegated as is seen in the 9th and 10th amendments to the Constitution.  But the sovereign state retains the right to recall its authority otherwise it is no longer sovereign.  "The powers not delegated to the United States by the constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people."- 10th amendment. In Chisholm v. Georgia (1793) the court found "To the Constitution of the United States the term sovereign, is totally unknown.  There is but one place where it could have been used with propriety.  But, even in that place it would not, perhaps, have comported with the delicacy of those, who ordained and established that Constitution.  They might have announced themselves "sovereign" people of the United States:  But serenely conscious of the fact, they avoided the ostentatious declaration….Let a State be considered as subordinate to the People:  But let every thing else be subordinate to the State".- Chisolm v. Georgia, 2 US 419
 
3.  Shortly after the ratification of the Constitution, the federal government began its encroachment upon the states.  With the passage of the Sedition Act in 1798,  Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, (creator of the Virginia plan which evolved into the Constitution), were asked by the state of Kentucky and Virginia to  author the "Kentucky and Virginia Resolves of 1798" which nullified the enforcement of the Sedition Act within their states.  All three branches of the Federal government had conspired against the people of the states in violating their right to freedom of speech and press.  The sovereign authority of the states of Kentucky and Virginia interposed between the citizens of these states and the Federal government.
 
4.  For those states which were admitted into the Union who were not participants in the ratification, the equal footing doctrine would apply basically stating that all states shared the same powers and sovereignty as the original thirteen.  See: Pollard v. Hagan, and Permoli v. First Municipality of New Orleans.
 
5.  This now brings us to Texas v. White.  This case was decided on a 5-3 vote.  The 5 who voted as a majority were Lincoln appointees.  One of the three dissenters Justice Robert Cooper Grier, an appointee to the court by President Polk in 1846, called Chief Justice Chases opinion a "legal fiction" as he considered Texas to not be a state in the union at the time this case was being decided.  Further  Chief Justice Chase should have recused himself from this case do to himself being involved in the case in 1862 as secretary of the treasury.  There are many more details involved in this case in which one who is interested in further details should consult John Avery Emison, Ph.D. book called Lincoln Über Alles: Dictatorship Comes to AmericaSECESSION.
 
In conclusion,  as one searches out the true history of the formation of our Federal government through the eyes of the anti-federalists who foretold with incredible accuracy the results of adopting this contract known as the Constitution with its inherent flaws, one of which would be a supreme court which could interpret its own actions and laws within itself.  A court which eventually saw its actions as sovereign having no higher authority to hold them in check.  Is it any wonder that we should have such absurd decisions as that found in Texas v. White, which become the foundation for the premise of secession as being unconstitutional or at the very least, the supreme court being accepted as having jurisdiction in this area which has not been delegated to them by the states?  I would think that we have been swindled into the notion of thinking of secession as a "rebellion" and  should rather view it as a God given right which is protected under the 9th and 10th amendment to our Constitution.  In contrast the terms and phraseology used to characterize the actions of the Federal government over the past 150 years I'll leave for the reader to decide. – C.L. from Montana 

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Here are some questions for the dull and ignorant that should be contemplated as deep as your intellect can venture.

If you cannot leave a lifestyle you hate, are you free? If your government declares what you should eat, and how much, are you free. If your government decides how warm or cool your home should be, are you free? If your government intrudes on you private communications, are you free? Most people who cannot bear to read more than one sentence if it does not make them laugh, would not have read this far so, let me ask you who are still reading if you have the guts to do anything about this situation? The ability to divorce your government when it becomes intolerable is the most precious right you have! It’s not your government you should love, it’s your freedom!

I’LL TELL YOU WHAT IT MEANS

Today I picked up the newspaper and was struck by the following title lead-in to an article in regard to the election results; it said:

"HALF OF IOWA VOTERS OVER SIXTY-FIVE CAST THEIR BALLOTS FOR OBAMA"

It means that the liberal progressives have succeeded with their kindergarten thru college socialist/progressive indoctrination endeavors. It means that we, the people were too stupidly caught up in our mundane lives to push back to such an inimical neo communist stratagem. It was a contrivance that was very useful to the socialists and the death knell for a once great Constitutional Republic.

It meant that a corrupted and ignorant youth with ultra pliable minds grew into corrupted adults. It means that now, in this nation, the takers are on par and dead even with the givers. It means the absolute end to this nation; it is just a matter of a short amount of time. This nation is dead, it just refuses to fall over and be buried as it should be, given that it is no longer useful to any righteous intent or purpose.

Do I care? You're damn tootin' I do. I served in the American Military and was greatly proud to be able to do so, such is not the case anymore if I were young enough to be asked, "I would tell whoever asked to stick it." What will be done when none will be willing to take arms in defense of this nation?

A ROTTEN AND CORRUPT PEOPLE MEANS A ROTTEN AND CORRUPT NATION

It means that legalized euthanasia and infanticide can rage in the absence of any ethics or morals. It means that taxation without representation in this nation is the norm, and that the people no longer rule, but are subject to a totalitarian government. It means that vice and moral weakness has supplanted that which is good, moral, worthy, innocent, and just.

It means that our ass is grass and the progressive government is the lawn mower, when they pass over you they will sing, "so long suckers…we won, you lost."

And that dear reader is what it means. Take refuge in the Lord; He is your only escape from this demonically structured nation.
