Introduction

The tragic events of September 11, 2001 constitute a fundamental landmark in American history, a decisive watershed, a breaking point. Millions of people have been misled regarding the causes and consequences of 9/11.

September 11 2001 opens up an era of crisis, upheaval and militarization of American society. The post September 11, 2001 era is marked by the outright criminalization of the US State, including its judicial, foreign policy, national security and intelligence apparatus.

9/11 marks the onslaught of the “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT), used as a pretext and a justification by the US and its NATO allies to carry out a “war without borders”, a global war of conquest.

A far-reaching overhaul of US military doctrine was launched in the wake of 9/11.

9/11 was also a stepping stone towards the relentless repeal of civil liberties, the militarization of law enforcement and the inauguration of “Police State USA”.

In assessing the crimes associated with 9/11 in the context of a legal procedure, we must distinguish between those associated with the actual event, namely the loss of life and the destruction of property, from the crimes committed in the aftermath of September 11, 2001 “in the name of 9/11″. The latter build upon the former. We are dealing with two related dimensions of criminality. The crimes committed in the name of 9/11 involving acts of war are far-reaching, resulting in the deaths of millions of people as well as the destruction of entire countries.

The 9/11 event in itself– which becomes symbolic– is used to justify the onslaught of the post 9/11 US-NATO military agenda, under the banner of the “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT), not to mention the ushering in of the Homeland police state and the repeal of civil liberties.

The crimes committed in the name of 9/11 broadly consist in two intimately related processes:

1. The launching of the “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT), used as a pretext and a justification to Wage a War of Conquest. This GWOT mandate was used to justify the 2001 and 2003 invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. The GWOT mandate has since extended its grip to a large number of countries in Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia, where the US and its NATO allies are intervening selectively under a counterterrorism mandate.

2. The derogation of civil liberties and the instatement of an Orwellian police state apparatus within Western countries. In the US, the introduction of the PATRIOT legislation and the establishment of the Department of Homeland Security in the immediate wake of the 9/11 attacks set the stage for the subsequent restructuring of the judicial and law enforcement apparatus, culminating in the legalisation of extrajudicial assassinations under an alleged counter-terrorism mandate.

The 9/11 attacks constitute what is referred to in intelligence parlance to as a “massive casualty producing event” conducive to the deaths of civilians.

The dramatic loss of life on the morning of 9/11 resulting from an initial criminal act is used as a pretext and a justification to wage an all out war of retribution, in the name of 9/11 against the alleged perpetrators of 9/11, namely the “state sponsors of terrorism”, including Afghanistan, Iraq as well as Iran.

We are dealing with a diabolical and criminal project. The civilian deaths resulting from the 911 attacks are an instrument of war propaganda, applied to build a consensus in favor of an outright war of global domination.

The perpetrators of war propaganda are complicit in the conduct of extensive war crimes, in that they readily justify acts of war as counter-terrorism and/or humanitarian operations (R2P) launched to protect civilians.

The “Just War” (Jus ad Bellum) concept prevails: The killing of civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq are “rightfully” undertaken in retribution for the deaths incurred on 9/11.

Evidence is fabricated to the effect that the “state sponsors of terrorism” had committed, on the morning of 9/11, an outright act of war against the United States.

Realities are turned upside down. The US and its allies are the victims of foreign aggression. America’s crimes of war in Afghanistan and Iraq are committed in the name of 9/11 under a counter terrorism mandate.

The 9/11 attacks are used to harness public opinion into supporting a war without borders. Endless wars of aggression under the humanitarian cloak of “counter-terrorism” are set in motion. 

Chronology of Events

At eleven o’clock, on the morning of September 11, the Bush administration had already announced that Al Qaeda was responsible for the attacks on the World Trade Center (WTC) and the Pentagon. This assertion was made prior to the conduct of an in-depth police investigation.

CIA Director George Tenet stated that same morning that Osama bin Laden had the capacity to plan “multiple attacks with little or no warning.”

Secretary of State Colin Powell called the attacks “an act of war” and President Bush confirmed in an evening televised address to the Nation that he would “make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those [foreign governments] who harbor them”.

Former CIA Director James Woolsey, without mentioning Afghanistan, pointed his finger at “state sponsorship,” implying the complicity of one or more foreign governments. In the words of former National Security Adviser, Lawrence Eagleburger, “I think we will show when we get attacked like this, we are terrible in our strength and in our retribution.”

That same evening at 9:30 pm, a “War Cabinet” was formed integrated by a select number of top intelligence and military advisors. And at 11:00 pm, at the end of that historic meeting at the White House, the “War on Terrorism” was officially launched.

The war cabinet had decided to launch an an illegal and criminal war on Afghanistan, based on essentially two interrelated concepts:

1. The 9/11 attacks although allegedly conducted by Al Qaeda were upheld as an all out military attack by a foreign power.

2. Afghanistan in allegedly supporting Al Qaeda, was responsible for an act of military aggression directed against the United States of America.

The tragic events of 9/11 provided the required justification to wage war on Afghanistan on “humanitarian grounds”, with the full support of World public opinion and the endorsement of the “international community”. Several prominent “progressive” intellectuals made a case for “retaliation against terrorism”, on moral and ethical grounds. In taking on this stance they provided legitimacy to the conduct of war crimes. The “just cause” military doctrine (jus ad bellum) was accepted and upheld at face value as a legitimate response to 9/11.

In the wake of 9/11, the antiwar movement was completely isolated. The trade unions and civil society organizations had swallowed the media lies and government propaganda. They had accepted a war of retribution against Afghanistan, an impoverished country in Central Asia of 30 million people.

The myth of the “outside enemy” and the threat of “Islamic terrorists” was the cornerstone of the Bush administration’s military doctrine, used as a pretext to invade Afghanistan and Iraq, not to mention the repeal of civil liberties and constitutional government in America. The post 9/11 era was also characterised by the development of Islamophobia, including routine ethnic profiling directed against Muslims.

Where was Osama bin Laden on September 11, 2001?

Is there any proof to the effect that Osama bin Laden, the bogeyman, coordinated the 9/11 attacks as claimed in the official 9/11 narrative?

According to CBS news (Dan Rather, January 28, 2002), “Enemy Number One” was admitted to the urology ward of a Pakistani military hospital in Rawalpindi on September 10, 2001, courtesy of America’s indefectible ally Pakistan. Rawalpindi is the Headquarters of the Pakistani military including its intelligence apparatus. He could have been arrested at short notice which would have “saved us a lot of trouble”, but then we would not have had an Osama Legend, which has fed the news chain as well as presidential speeches in the course of the last eleven years.

DAN RATHER. As the United states and its allies in the war on terrorism press the hunt for Osama bin Laden, CBS News has exclusive information tonight about where bin Laden was and what he was doing in the last hours before his followers struck the United States September 11.

This is the result of hard-nosed investigative reporting by a team of CBS news journalists, and by one of the best foreign correspondents in the business, CBS`s Barry Petersen. Here is his report.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE) BARRY PETERSEN, CBS CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): Everyone remembers what happened on September 11. Here`s the story of what may have happened the night before. It is a tale as twisted as the hunt for Osama bin Laden.

CBS News has been told that the night before the September 11 terrorist attack, Osama bin Laden was in Pakistan. He was getting medical treatment with the support of the very military that days later pledged its backing for the U.S. war on terror in Afghanistan. (transcript of CBS report, see

CBS News footage of the Rawalpindi, Pakistan, hospital where bin Laden was allegedly treated the day before 9/11. [Source: CBS News]

The foregoing CBS report which is of utmost relevance indicates two obvious facts:

1. Osama bin Laden could not reasonably have coordinated the 9/11 attacks from his hospital bed;

2. The hospital was under the jurisdiction of the Pakistani Armed Forces, which has close links to the Pentagon. Osama bin Laden’s whereabouts were known to both the Pakistani and US military.

U.S. military and intelligence advisers based in Rawalpindi. were working closely with their Pakistani counterparts. Again, no attempt was made to arrest America’s best known fugitive. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld claimed, at the time, that the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden were unknown. According to Rumsfeld: “Its like looking for a needle in a stack of hay”.

Recovering from his hospital treatment in Rawalpindi on the 11th of September, how could Osama have coordinated the 9/11 attacks?

How could Afghanistan be made responsible for these attacks by Al Qaeda? Bin Laden is a national of Saudi Arabia who, according to CBS News, was not in Afghanistan, but in Pakistan at the time of the attacks.

September 12, 2001: The Invasion of Afghanistan: NATO’s Doctrine of Collective Security

The immediate response of the US and its NATO allies to the 9/11 attacks was to the declare a war of retribution against Afghanistan on the grounds that the Taliban government was protecting “terror mastermind” Osama bin Laden, who at the time of the attacks was in Pakistan, protected by the Pakistani military and intelligence apparatus. In a bitter irony, the Pakistani government and military, which had facilitated bin Laden’s hospitalization in Rawalpindi on September 10, offered to assist the US in “going after bin Laden”. An agreement to this effect was reached on September 12 in Washington between the head of Pakistan’s military Intelligence (ISI) General Mahmoud Ahmed and Secretary Colin Powell.

Parroting official statements, the Western media mantra on September 12, 2001 had already approved the launching of “punitive actions” directed against civilian targets in Afghanistan. In the words of William Saffire writing in the New York Times: “When we reasonably determine our attackers’ bases and camps, we must pulverize them — minimizing but accepting the risk of collateral damage” — and act overtly or covertly to destabilize terror’s national hosts”.

By allegedly harboring bin Laden, the Afghan government was complicit, according to both the US administration and NATO, for having waged an act of war against the United States.

This decision was taken by the Bush-Cheney war cabinet in the evening of September 11, 2001. It was based on the presumption, “confirmed” by the head of the CIA that Al Qaeda was behind the attacks.

On the following morning, September 12, 2001, NATO’s Atlantic Council meeting in Brussels, endorsed the Bush administration’s declaration of war on Afghanistan (taken by the war cabinet at 11pm on September 11), invoking Article 5 of the Washington Treaty.

Meanwhile, on two occasions in the course of September 2001, the Afghan government –through diplomatic channels– offered to hand over Osama Bin laden to US Justice. These overtures were turned down by president Bush, on the grounds that America “does not negotiate with terrorists”.

The War on Afghanistan: First Stage of the “Global War on Terrorism”

The war on Afghanistan was launched 26 days later on the morning of October 7, 2001. The timing of this war begs the question: how long does it take to plan and implement a major theater war several thousand miles away.

Military analysts will confirm that a major theater war takes months and months, up to a year or more of advanced preparations. Confirmed by press reports, the war on Afghanistan was already in an advanced state of readiness prior to September 11, 2001, which begs the question of foreknowledge of the 9/11 attacks.

In other words, the 9/11 attacks were used as a means to trigger a military agenda which was already on the drawing board of both the Pentagon and NATO.

The repeal of civil liberties in America was launched in parallel with the bombing and invasion of Afghanistan. Immediately following 9/11, the PATRIOT legislation was adopted. The Homeland Security apparatus was launched, with a view to “protecting Americans against terrorists”. This post-911 legal and institutional framework had been carefully crafted prior to the 9/11 attacks.

Article 5 of the Washington Treaty: NATO’s Legal Argument

In invoking Article 5 on the morning of September 12, 2001, NATO’s Atlantic Council endorsed a criminal military agenda, in derogation of international law.

The legal argument used by Washington and NATO to invade Afghanistan was that the September 11 attacks constituted an undeclared “armed attack” “from abroad” by an unnamed foreign power, and that consequently “the laws of war” apply, allowing the nation under attack, to strike back in the name of “self-defense”.

On the morning of September 12, 2001, NATO’s North Atlantic Council meeting in Brussels, responded to the decision of the War Cabinet taken a few hours earlier at 11pm on 9/11, adopted the following resolution:

“if it is determined that the [September 11, 2001] attack against the United States was directed from abroad [Afghanistan] against “The North Atlantic area“, it shall be regarded as an action covered by Article 5 of the Washington Treaty”. (emphasis added)

In this regard, Article 5 of the Washington Treaty stipulates that if:

“The Parties agree that an armed attack against one or more of them in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all and consequently they agree that, if such an armed attack occurs, each of them, in exercise of the right of individual or collective self-defence recognised by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations, will assist the Party or Parties so attacked by taking forthwith, individually and in concert with the other Parties, such action as it deems necessary, including the use of armed force, to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area.” (NATO,

What is Article 5, NATO Topics – NATO and the Scourge of Terrorism, accessed 24 November 2009, emphasis added)

An act of war by a foreign nation (Afghanistan) against a member of the Atlantic Alliance (the USA) was considered as an act of war against all members under NATO’s doctrine of collective security.

Under no stretch of the imagination, can the attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon be categorized as an act of war by a foreign country. But nobody seemed to have raised this issue.

“Use of Armed Force” only “If It is Determined…”

There was an “if” in the September 12 resolution. Article 5 would apply only if it is determined that Afghanistan as a Nation State was complicit or behind the 9/11 attacks.

In practice, the “if” had already been waived prior to 9/11. The entire NATO arsenal was already on a war footing. In military terms, NATO and the US were already in an advanced state of readiness. Known to military analysts, but never revealed in the Western media, the implementation of a large scale theater war takes at least one year of advanced operational planning, prior to the launching of an invasion.

The use of article 5 of the Washington Treaty had in all likelihood been contemplated by military planners, as a pretext for waging war, prior to 9/11.

There was, however, no official declaration of war on September 12th. The Alliance waited until 3 days before the invasion to declare war on Afghanistan, an impoverished country which by no stretch of the imagination could have launched an attack against a member state of “The North Atlantic area”.

The September 12 resolution of the Atlantic Council required “determination” and corroborating evidence, that:

1) Al Qaeda led by Osama bin Laden with the support of a foreign power had ordered the “attack from abroad” on the United States of America;

2) The terrorist attacks of 9/11 constituted a bona fide military operation (under the provisions of Article 5) by an alleged foreign country (Afghanistan) against a NATO member state, and consequently against all NATO member states under the doctrine of collective security:

“Article 5 and the case of the terrorist attacks against the United States: The United States has been the object of brutal terrorist attacks. It immediately consulted with the other members of the Alliance. The Alliance determined that the US had been the object of an armed attack. The Alliance therefore agreed that if it was determined that this attack was directed from abroad, it would be regarded as covered by Article 5. NATO Secretary General, Lord Robertson, subsequently informed the Secretary-General of the United Nations of the Alliance’s decision.

Article 5 has thus been invoked, but no determination has yet been made whether the attack against the United States was directed from abroad.

If such a determination is made, each Ally will then consider what assistance it should provide. In practice, there will be consultations among the Allies. Any collective action by NATO will be decided by the North Atlantic Council. The United States can also carry out independent actions, consistent with its rights and obligations under the UN Charter.

Allies can provide any form of assistance they deem necessary to respond to the situation. This assistance is not necessarily military and depends on the material resources of each country. Each individual member determines how it will contribute and will consult with the other members, bearing in mind that the ultimate aim is to “to restore and maintain the security of the North Atlantic area”.

By invoking Article 5, NATO members have shown their solidarity toward the United States and condemned, in the strongest possible way, the terrorist attacks against the United States on 11 September.

If the conditions are met for the application of Article 5, NATO Allies will decide how to assist the United States.

(Many Allies have clearly offered emergency assistance). Each Ally is obliged to assist the United States by taking forward, individually and in concert with other Allies, such action as it deems necessary. This is an individual obligation on each Ally and each Ally is responsible for determining what it deems necessary in these particular circumstances.

No collective action will be taken by NATO until further consultations are held and further decisions are made by the the North Atlantic Council.

The Mysterious Frank Taylor Report

The final decision to invoke Article 5 in relation to the 9/11 attacks came three weeks later upon the submission to the NATO Council of a mysterious classified report by a US State Department official named Frank Taylor. The report was submitted to NATO on October 2nd, 5 days before the commencement of the bombing and invasion of Afghanistan.

Frank Taylor was working in the US State Department. He had been entrusted with the writing of a brief to establish whether the US “had been attacked from abroad”, pursuant to the North Atlantic Council’s resolution of September 12 2001.

US Ambassador at Large and Co-ordinator for Counter-terrorism Frank Taylor briefed the North Atlantic Council on October 2nd, five days before the commencement of the bombings.

On October 2nd he handed his brief to NATO “on the results of investigations into the 11 September attacks… ” NATO – Topic: Terrorism, NATO and the fight against Terrorism, accessed 24 November 2009).

The classified report was not released to the media. And to this date, to our knowledge, it has remained classified.

NATO’s Secretary General Lord Robertson casually summarised the substance of the Frank Taylor report in a press release:

“This morning, the United States briefed the North Atlantic Council on the results of the investigation into who was responsible for the horrific terrorist attacks which took place on September 11.

The briefing was given by Ambassador Frank Taylor, the United States Department of State Coordinator for Counter-terrorism.

This morning’s briefing follows those offered by United States Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage and United States Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz, and illustrates the commitment of the United States to maintain close cooperation with Allies.

Today’s was classified briefing and so I cannot give you all the details.

Briefings are also being given directly by the United States to the Allies in their capitals.

The briefing addressed the events of September 11 themselves, the results of the investigation so far, what is known about Osama bin Laden and the al-Qaida organisation and their involvement in the attacks and in previous terrorist activity, and the links between al-Qaida and the Taliban regime in Afghanistan.

The facts are clear and compelling. The information presented points conclusively to an al-Qaida role in the September 11 attacks.

We know that the individuals who carried out these attacks were part of the world-wide terrorist network of al-Qaida, headed by Osama bin Laden and his key lieutenants and protected by the Taliban.

On the basis of this briefing, it has now been determined that the attack against the United States on September 11 was directed from abroad and shall therefore be regarded as an action covered by Article 5 of the Washington Treaty, which states that an armed attack on one or more of the Allies in Europe or North America shall be considered an attack against them all.

I want to reiterate that the United States of America can rely on the full support of its 18 NATO Allies in the campaign against terrorism.” (Lord Robertson, NATO Secretary General, statement to the NATO Council, State Department, Appendix H, Multinational Response to September 11 NATO Press http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/10313.pdf, accessed 24 November 2009, emphasis added)

In other words, 2 days before the actual commencement of the bombing campaign on October 7, the North Atlantic Council decided, based on the information provided by Frank Taylor to the Council “that the attacks were directed from abroad” by Al Qaeda, headed by Osama bin Laden, thereby requiring an action on the part of NATO under Article 5 of the Washington Treaty ( NATO – Topic: Terrorism, NATO and the fight against Terrorism, accessed 24 November 2009):

NATO action under article 5, was outlined in an October 4 decision, 3 days before the commencement of the bombings.

Two days later, on 4 October, NATO agreed on eight measures in support the United States, which were tantamount to an illegal declaration of war on Afghanistan: to enhance intelligence sharing and co-operation, both bilaterally and in appropriate NATO bodies, relating to the threats posed by terrorism and the actions to be taken against it; to provide, individually or collectively, as appropriate and according to their capabilities, [military] assistance to Allies and other states which are or may be subject to increased terrorist threats as a result of their support for the campaign against terrorism;

to take necessary measures to provide increased security for facilities of the United States and other Allies on their territory; to backfill selected Allied assets in NATO’s area of responsibility that are required to directly support operations against terrorism; to provide blanket overflight clearances for the United States and other Allies’ aircraft, in accordance with the necessary air traffic arrangements and national procedures, for military flights related to operations against terrorism; to provide access for the United States and other Allies to ports and airfields on the territory of NATO nations for operations against terrorism, including for refuelling, in accordance with national procedures; that the Alliance is ready to deploy elements of its Standing Naval Forces to the Eastern Mediterranean in order to provide a NATO presence and demonstrate resolve; and that the Alliance is similarly ready to deploy elements of its NATO Airborne Early Warning Force to support operations against terrorism.

NATO – Topic: Terrorism, NATO and the fight against Terrorism, accessed 24 November 2009

Press reports of Frank Taylor’s brief to the NATO Council were scanty. The invocation of Article 5, five days before the bombings commenced, was barely mentioned. The media consensus was: “all roads lead to Bin Laden” as if bin Laden was a Nation State which had attacked America.

What stands out are outright lies and fabrications. Moreover, prior to October 2nd, NATO had no pretext under Article 5 of the Washington Treaty to intervene militarily in Afghanistan.

The pretext was provided by Frank Taylor’s classified report, which was not made public.

The two UN Security Council resolutions adopted in the course of September 2001, did not, under any circumstances, provide a justification for the invasion and illegal occupation of a UN member country of 28 million people. (see Security Council resolution 1368 (2001) Threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts, Security Council resolution 1373 (2001) Threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts).

UNSC Resolution 1373 (2001) called for prevention and suppression of terrorist acts, as well suppression of the financing of terrorism:

“(e) Ensure that any person who participates in the financing, planning, preparation or perpetration of terrorist acts or in supporting terrorist acts is brought to justice and ensure that, in addition to any other measures against them, such terrorist acts are established as serious criminal offences in domestic laws and regulations and that the punishment duly reflects the seriousness of such terrorist acts;

3. Calls upon all States to:

“(a) Find ways of intensifying and accelerating the exchange of operational information, especially regarding actions or movements of terrorist persons or networks; forged or falsified travel documents; traffic in arms, explosives or sensitive materials; use of communications technologies by terrorist groups; and the threat posed by the possession of weapons of mass destruction by terrorist groups;

“(b) Exchange information in accordance with international and domestic law and cooperate on administrative and judicial matters to prevent the commission of terrorist acts;

“(c) Cooperate, particularly through bilateral and multilateral arrangements and agreements, to prevent and suppress terrorist attacks and take action against perpetrators of such acts;

“4. Notes with concern the close connection between international terrorism and transnational organized crime, illicit drugs, money-laundering, illegal arms-trafficking, and illegal movement of nuclear, chemical, biological and other potentially deadly materials, and in this regard emphasizes the need to enhance coordination of efforts on national, subregional, regional and international levels in order to strengthen a global response to this serious challenge and threat to international security;

“5. Declares that acts, methods, and practices of terrorism are contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations and that knowingly financing, planning and inciting terrorist acts are also contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations (excerpts of UNSC Resolution 1373 (2001, See also UN Press Release SC 7178

SECURITY COUNCIL UNANIMOUSLY ADOPTS WIDE-RANGING ANTI-TERRORISM RESOLUTION; CALLS FOR SUPPRESSING FINANCING, IMPROVING INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION,

Security Council, 4385th Meeting, September 2001)

Nowhere in this resolution is there any mention of military action against a UN member State.

The US led war on Afghanistan, using 9/11 as a pretext and a justification is illegal and criminal.

The US and NATO heads of state and heads of government from 2001 to the present are complicit in the launching of a criminal and illegal war.

The Big Lie: Al Qaeda Made in America

Amply documented but rarely mentioned by the mainstream media, Al Qaeda is a creation of the CIA going back to the Soviet- Afghan war. This was a known fact, corroborated by numerous sources including official documents of the US Congress, which the mainstream media chose to either dismiss or ignore. The intelligence community had time and again acknowledged that they had indeed supported Osama bin Laden, but that in the wake of the Cold War: “he turned against us”.

Both the 9/11 Commission Report as well as the Western media have largely upheld the “outside enemy” mythology, heralding Al Qaeda as the “mastermind” organization behind the 9/11 attacks. The official 9/11 narrative has not only distorted the causes underling the collapse of the World Trade Center buildings, it has also erased the historical record of US covert support to international terrorism, while creating the illusion that America and “Western Civilization” are threatened.

Without an “outside enemy”, there could be no “Global War on Terrorism”. The entire national security agenda would collapse “like a deck of cards”. The war criminals in high office would have no leg to stand on.

After 9/11, the campaign of media disinformation served not only to drown the truth but also to kill much of the historical evidence on how this illusive Al Qaeda “outside enemy” had been fabricated and transformed into “Enemy Number One”.

This is why a legal procedure directed against the actual perpetrators of 9/11 is absolutely essential.

History of Al Qaeda

Important to the understanding of 9/11, US intelligence is the unspoken architect of “Islamic terrorism” going back to the heyday of the Soviet-Afghan war.

Bin Laden was 22 years old and was trained in a CIA sponsored guerrilla training camp. Education in Afghanistan in the years preceding the Soviet-Afghan war was largely secular. With religious textbooks produced in Nebraska, the number of CIA sponsored religious schools (madrasahs) increased from 2,500 in 1980 to over 39,000.

“Advertisements, paid for from CIA funds, were placed in newspapers and newsletters around the world offering inducements and motivations to join the [Islamic] Jihad.” (Pervez Hoodbhoy, Peace Research, 1 May 2005)

”The United States spent millions of dollars to supply Afghan schoolchildren with textbooks filled with violent images and militant Islamic teachings…The primers, which were filled with talk of jihad and featured drawings of guns, bullets, soldiers and mines, have served since then as the Afghan school system’s core curriculum. Even the Taliban used the American-produced books,..”, (Washington Post, 23 March 2002)

Under the Reagan administration, US foreign policy evolved towards the unconditional support and endorsement of the Islamic “freedom fighters”. This endorsement has not in any way been modified.

In a twisted irony, throughout the post 911 era, US intelligence in liaison with Britain’s MI6, an Israel’s Mossad, continues to provide covert support to the radical Islamist organization allegedly responsible for the 9/11 attacks. Al Qaeda and its various affiliated groups including the Libya Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) and factions within the Free Syria Army (FSA) are directly supported by the US and NATO.

In a bitter irony, the US and its allies claim to be waging a “war on terrorism” against the alleged architects of 9/11, while also using Al Qaeda operatives as their foot-soldiers.

Iraq: Alleged State Sponsor of the 9/11 Attacks

The formulation of a war of retribution conducted in the name of 9/11 was not limited to Afghanistan.

In the course of 2002, leading up to the invasion of Iraq in March 2003, “Osama bin Laden” and “Weapons of Mass Destruction” statements circulated profusely in the news chain. While Washington’s official position was that Saddam Hussein was not behind the 9/11 attacks, insinuations abounded both in presidential speeches as well as in the Western media. According to Bush, in an October 2002 press conference:

The threat comes from Iraq. It arises directly from the Iraqi regime’s own actions — its history of aggression, and its drive toward an arsenal of terror.  

We also must never forget the most vivid events of recent history. On September the 11th, 2001, America felt its vulnerability — even to threats that gather on the other side of the earth. We resolved then, and we are resolved today, to confront every threat, from any source [Iraq], that could bring sudden terror and suffering to America. President Bush Outlines Iraqi Threat, October 7, 2002)

Barely two weeks before the invasion of Iraq, September 11, 2001 was mentioned abundantly by president Bush. In the weeks leading up to the March invasion, 45 percent of Americans believed Saddam Hussein was “personally involved” in the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks. (See . The impact of Bush linking 9/11 and Iraq / The Christian Science Monitor – CSMonitor.com, March 14, 2003)

Meanwhile, a new terrorist mastermind had emerged: Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi.

In Colin Powell’s historic address to the United Nations Security Council, in February 2003, detailed “documentation” on a sinister relationship between Saddam Hussein and Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi was presented, focussing on his ability to produce deadly chemical, biological and radiological weapons, with the full support and endorsement of the secular Baathist regime. The implication of Colin’s Powell’s assertions, which were totally fabricated, was that Saddam Hussein and an Al Qaeda affiliated organization had joined hands in the production of WMD in Northern Iraq and that the Hussein government was a “state sponsor” of terrorism.

The main thrust of the disinformation campaign continued in the wake of the March 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq. It consisted in presenting the Iraqi resistance movement as “terrorists”. The image of “terrorists opposed to democracy” fighting US “peacekeepers” appeared on television screens and news tabloids across the globe.

Iran: Condemned by a New York City Court for Supporting Al Qaeda in the 9/11 Attacks

In the wake of the Iraq invasion, the same alleged “state sponsorship” of terrorism accusations emerged in relation to Iran.

In December 2011, the Islamic Republic of Iran was condemned by a Manhattan court, for its alleged role in supporting Al Qaeda in the 9/11 attacks.

The investigation into Tehran’s alleged role was launched in 2004, pursuant to a recommendation of the 9/11 Commission “regarding an apparent link between Iran, Hezbollah, and the 9/11 hijackers”. The 9/11 Commission’s recommendation was that this “apparent link” required “further investigation by the U.S. government.” (9/11 Commission Report , p. 241). (See Iran 911 Case ).

In the December 2011 court judgment (Havlish v. Iran) “U.S. District Judge George B. Daniels ruled that Iran and Hezbollah materially and directly supported al Qaeda in the September 11, 2001 attacks and are legally responsible for damages to hundreds of family members of 9/11 victims who are plaintiffs in the case”.

According to the plaintiffs attorneys “Iran, Hezbollah, and al Qaeda formed a terror alliance in the early 1990s. Citing their national security and intelligence experts, the attorneys explained “how the pragmatic terror leaders overcame the Sunni-Shi’a divide in order to confront the U.S. (the “Great Satan”) and Israel (the “Lesser Satan”)”. Iran and Hezbollah allegedly provided “training to members of al Qaeda in, among other things, the use of explosives to destroy large buildings.” (See Iran 911 Case ).

This judicial procedure is nothing more than another vicious weapon in the fabricated “War on Terror” to be used against another Muslim country, with a view to destabilizing Iran as well as justifying ongoing military threats. It also says a lot more about the people behind the lawsuit than about the accused. The expert witnesses who testified against Iran are very active in warmongering neocon circles. They belong to a web of architects of the 21st century Middle-Eastern wars, ranging from high profile propagandists to intelligence and military officers, including former U.S. officials.

But what makes this case absurd is that in September 2011, a few months before the judgment, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has questioned the official 9/11 narrative, was accused by Al-Qaeda leaders of “spreading conspiracy theories about the 9/11 attacks”. The semi-official media outlet of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, insisted that al-Qaeda “had been behind the attacks and criticised the Iranian president for discrediting the terrorist group.” (See Julie Levesque, Iran Accused of being behind 9/11 Attacks. U.S. Court Judgment, December 2011 (Havlish v. Iran),

Global Research, May 11, 2012)

Al Qaeda: US-NATO Foot-soldiers

Ironically, while Washington accuses Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran of complicity in the 9/11 attacks, the historical record and evidence indelibly point to the “state sponsorship” of Al Qaeda by the CIA, MI6 and their intelligence counterparts in Pakistan, Qatar and Saudi Arabia.

Realities are turned upside down. Al Qaeda death squads have been recruited to wage America’s humanitarian wars throughout the Middle East an d North Africa.

In Syria Al Qaeda units were recruited by NATO and the Turkish High command: “Also discussed in Brussels and Ankara, our sources report, is a campaign to enlist thousands of Muslim volunteers in Middle East countries and the Muslim world to fight alongside the Syrian rebels.” (http://www.debka.com/article/21255/ Debkafile, August 31, 2011).

In Libya, jihadists from Afghanistan trained by the CIA were dispatched to fight with the “pro-democracy” rebels under the helm of “former” Libya Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) Commander Abdel Hakim Belhadj:

Western policy makers admit that NATO’s operations in Libya have played the primary role in emboldening Al Qaeda’s AQIM faction (Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb). The Fortune 500-funded Brookings Institution’s Bruce Riedel in his article, “The New Al Qaeda Menace,” admits that AQIM is now heavily armed thanks to NATO’s intervention in Libya, and that AQIM’s base in Mali, North Africa, serves as a staging ground for terrorist activities across the region. http://www.globalresearch.ca/al-qaeda-and-natos-pan-arab-terrorist-blitzkrieg/

“Crimes against Civilization”

9/11 mythology has been the mainstay of war propaganda, which in itself constitutes a criminal act under international law.

Fiction prevails over reality. For propaganda to be effective, public opinion must firmly endorse the official 9/11 narrative to the effect that Al Qaeda was behind the attacks. A well organized structure of media disinformation is required to reach this objective. Perpetuating the 9/11 Legend also requires defying as well smearing the 9/11 Truth Movement.

Throughout the post 9/11 era, a panoply of Al Qaeda related events and circumstances is presented to public opinion on a daily basis. These include terrorist threats, warnings and attacks, police investigations, insurgencies and counter-insurgencies, country-level regime change, social conflict, sectarian violence, racism, religious divisions, Islamic thought, Western values, etc.

Muslims are presented as the perpetrators of the 9/11, thereby unleashing a Worldwide demonization campaign.

In turn, 9/11, Al Qaeda – War on Terrorism rhetoric permeates political discourse at all levels of government, including bipartisan debate on Capitol Hill, in committees of the House and the Senate, at the British House of Commons, and, lest we forget, at the United Nations Security Council. All these various bodies are complicit in a criminal project.

September 11 and Al Qaeda concepts, repeated ad nauseam have potentially traumatic impacts on the human mind and the ability of normal human beings to analyze and comprehend the “real outside World” of war, politics and the economic crisis.

What is at stake is human consciousness and comprehension based on concepts and facts.

With September 11 there are no verifiable “facts” and “concepts”, because 9/11 as well as Al Qaeda have evolved into a media mythology, a legend, an invented ideological construct, used as an unsubtle tool of war propaganda.

Al Qaeda constitutes a stylized, fake and almost folkloric abstraction of terrorism, which permeates the inner consciousness of millions of people around the World.

Reference to Al Qaeda has become a dogma, a belief, which most people espouse unconditionally. According to the media, “Muslims were behind the attacks”, thereby justifying a war of retribution against Muslim countries.

Racism and Islamophobia are an integral part of war propaganda.

Is this political indoctrination? Is it brain-washing? If so what is the underlying objective?

People’s capacity to independently analyse World events, as well as address causal relationships pertaining to politics and society, is significantly impaired. That is the objective!

The routine use of 9/11 and Al Qaeda to generate blanket explanations of complex political events is meant to create confusion.

It prevents people from thinking. It strikes at the core of human values. In a sense, it destroys civilization.

All of these complex Al Qaeda related occurrences are explained by politicians, the corporate media, Hollywood and the Washington think tanks under a single blanket “bad guys” heading, in which Al Qaeda is casually and repeatedly pinpointed as “the cause” of numerous terror events around the World.

The criminality underlying post 9/11 propaganda is of much broader nature, affecting people’s mindsets, redefining fundamental social, political and institutional relations.

“Crimes against Civilization” have been committed.

9/11 mythology precipitates the World into barbarity.

Taking America Back: Forclosing Uncle Sam!

By David A. McElroy

Nov. 15, 2012

www.OnlyWay.com

Are you, like me, mortified by the 2012 re-election of Barack Obama? Just mourning for America and lost liberty in vanishing prosperity is not enough. Congressman Ron Paul’s farewell speech to Congress lamented a “continuous march to corporatism and fascism.” We must take America back, before we are locked in camps or mass graves. What to do?

Many, like me, have signed one or more of the petitions to the White House asking that Obama respond to citizens’ requests that he allow their state to peaceably secede from the federal Union. These petitions represent citizens, but not state governments, from all 50 states mulling secession. Obama’s office policy requires his administration to respond to any petitions garnering 25,000 or more signatures within 30 days, and several secession request petitions, initiated Nov. 7th, qualified just a few days after his re-election. Do you see a tempest is brewing? What if all 50 states told the corporation known as the USA to jump in the Potomac wearing a cement overcoat? Obama must be thinking, what to do?
 

We keep hearing alarm bells about America falling off a “fiscal cliff” into a horrible economic crash of apocalyptic ruin. We know many of our businesses are failing or gone forever, including some banks. Banks are ravenously desperate, with the Wall Street boys swallowing billions of tax dollar bailouts without assisting us on Main Street at all. They are using foreclosure with reckless abandon to pad their ledgers. So recklessly, that even those who owed nothing to a bank were foreclosed upon fraudulently, and with a judge’s authority! We keep hearing how Uncle Sam is some $16 TRILLION DOLLARS in debt, deep into bankruptcy! Pensions, Social Security, Medicare, and more jobs are in danger, we’re told, even as the Obama administration continues sending billions of dollars and thousands of jobs out of the country. He continues to prosecute costly wars of aggression abroad while persecuting Americans at home. Taxes will be staggering. What to do?

 
As the current trendy fiscal remedy is foreclosure, I suggest that what is good for the goose is good for the gander. So get a gander! Let us foreclose upon federal assets, which there are in abundance. What Uncle Sam has is really ours anyway, and all of it was taken from Americans by force or fraud. Larceny is the nature of government. You might check Walter Burien’s work at www.CAFR1.com to see how government really is reaping great profits and hiding huge assets from the public with double booking techniques. And, no, I don’t think we should seize federal assets only to auction them off to the highest bidders, as this would play right into the hands of those “too big to fail” criminals who are driving us to economic ruin. We must return assets to the middle and lower classes who were so ruthlessly and deceitfully robbed, treated as mere slaves on Uncle Sam’s plantation.
 
One way to do this is wholesale, with secession. This can be either orderly and peaceful, as in Iceland’s recent case, or chaotic and riotous, as was the Soviet Union’s breakup.
 
When a state secedes, it takes back all the federal real estate, installations, facilities, military equipment, weapons systems, tools, etc., just as the states of the Soviet Union did in that empire’s collapse. States like the Ukraine and Kazakhstan even retained nuclear weapons and rocket launching facilities. Much of this largess can be distributed to the people to meet immediate needs, like food supplies, as that state or its’ militias might determine. Russian soldiers had looted many military items for the black market, more or less openly. They had not been paid for some time. Eliminating onerous federal taxes and regulations will bring relief to all the people with real opportunities for prosperous living. In this age of Emperor Obama, where the idea of Redistributing Wealth is trendy, let’s apply this remedy to the world’s biggest robber baron, Uncle Sam. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Aren’t you tired of being goosed? Get a gander.
 
Look at Iceland’s example. That nation was teetering on insolvency due to the same usury and fraudulent central banking schemes we suffer here. Those people repudiated the debts imposed upon them, and jailed the bankers and the politicians assisting them in robbing Iceland. Working class people wrote a new constitution for Iceland. Now Iceland has a vibrant and prosperous economy. Icelanders tossed their evil government and the banks that owned it out of business forever. It was a good move we should employ here in America… FORECLOSE GOVERNMENT!
 
The other way would be to pursue foreclosing upon specified federal assets through the obviously corrupt court system which is part and parcel of the government raping us. The same court system allowing banks to foreclose upon homes fraudulently because of the mortgage paper shuffling. I see no hope in that venue, as the courts long ago abandoned our Constitution. The evil National Defense Authorization Act for 2012 proved that in gutting our Bill of Rights. Supreme Court justices brazenly advocate for international (socialist) law trumping the Constitution of the United States. What to do?
 
Read Ron Paul’s Farewell Address. It is his magnum opus for Truth, Justice, & Liberty. Check it out at www.campaignforliberty.org/national-blog/transcript-of-farewell-address
Dr. Paul is “… recognizing that it’s the virtue and morality of the people that allow liberty to flourish.” Is it any wonder that socialists always seek to destroy family values, virtues and morality? Paul, speaking as a 2012 candidate for President, was booed when he spoke of applying the Golden Rule to US foreign policy. In his farewell, he noted, “A society that boos or ridicules the Golden Rule is not a moral society. All great religions endorse the Golden rule. The same moral standards that individuals are required to follow should apply to all government officials. They cannot be exempt.”
 
Congressman Paul, author of Liberty Defined, says secession is an American principle, a right identified in the Declaration of Independence. He concluded his farewell address by stating, “The best chance for achieving peace and prosperity, for the maximum number of people world-wide, is to pursue the cause of liberty.” We must secede to succeed!

Due to the intellectual diversity now prevalent in American society, I do not see any possibility of this country consolidating a worldview of any nature. We have little in common in even the smallest groups, but the fire of freedom still burns hot in the breast of hundreds of thousands scattered across the States. A fire that may soon ignite a passion in those less capable of understanding that this diversity is a part of a well thought out plan to enslave the whole world, while the people were side tracked in a standard of living never before achieved in history. David McElroy, I, and thousands of others across America have committed their lives and assets to fanning the flames of “a passion for freedom from tyrannical governance” by either our personal writing ability or increasing the distribution of others more capable. The latter is something anyone can do with a little effort, by coping erudite email, or web content, and sending it out to their friends and family. NOTE: Always give credit to the authors you copy. You will know you have grown in comprehending America’s demise when you finally understand that the pledge of allegiance was a masterful piece of propaganda. You do not understand anything about this Nation if you still think we should blindly follow our representatives, or what others think. America was intended to be a better world by promoting the individuals hatred of tyranny, and hunger for knowledge. The respect for individualism was highly prized among our ancestors, as nothing was more rewarding than being self-sufficient. Now, it seems the majority have sucked the teat of socialism so long they are intellectually deformed, and will fight to the death before giving up their free lunch. That’s good because it gives us all the justification we need to do what ever is needed to win this battle for our freedom. It takes courage to say no-thanks to a free lunch, because it destroys my initiative. And it takes a hard-earned intellectual development experience to understand that a government with a hand out is the enemy of humanity. It is despicable far beyond decent language to explain. Stand up America, or get knocked down, your choice!
If you think the first civil war was horrendous, wait till you see what modern weapons produce. There will be wailing and gashing of teeth in the streets of America that drowns out the sounds of the weapons. Why would you die when all we want is for you to stand on your own two feet?

WHY THE STATES MUST SECEDE TO SAVE AMERICA

Declaration of Independence 2.0: Restoring the Republic

Infowars

Radio host Alex Jones today called for a secondAmerican Revolution led by states who would secede from the federal government and reconstitute the Republic under the terms of theDeclaration of Independence, bill of rights and constitution. (Read the transcript here).

The call for Americans to rally behind a restoration of the Republic and the bill of rights comes on the back of a burgeoning secessionist movement that has swept the country with residents from all 50 states submitting petitions to the White House calling for states to withdraw from the union and form their own independent governments. The petitions have received a combined number of signatures totaling over a million.

 

During his nationwide broadcast today, Jones laid out the battle plan for secession, emphasizing that states must first secede from the federal government, which has gone rogue, and then use the terms of the Declaration of Independence to restore the Republic, not create a new country.

Jones stressed that he was calling for a cultural restoration in the spirit of the bill of rights – a newly unified America under the Constitution – and not a violent overthrow, noting that it was the states that created the Constitution and the federal government in the first place.

Jones noted that the only course to restoring liberty was clear – “To follow the founding document of the Republic, the Declaration of Independence, wherein it is clearly stated that it is the right and the duty of the American people, when their government becomes destructive and tyrannical, to abolish and reconstitute it in a form that protects our liberties.”

“We are not calling for secession to form new separate countries, we are calling for secession because the states created the Constitution, bill of rights and federal government, and the federal government itself has been hijacked by foreign special interests – mainly banking cartels,” said Jones.

“I am calling for people to be educated about how we can secede to restore the Republic,” said Jones, warning that the media was attempting to characterize the entire movement as a plot to bring down America when in fact America has already been captured and taken over by the political and financial elite.

“This is the states putting their foot down and saying we are going to reconstitute the federal government under the bill of rights and constitution, we’re going to kick out the bureaucrats, the lobbyists, the foreign criminals, and the Federal Reserve who have taken over,” explained Jones.

The radio host also put the call out for Congressman Ron Paul to head up such a movement and utilize his vast network of grass roots liberty-loving activists to lead the charge, as well as using his contacts in each state to begin the process of secession in the legislature.

Harvard constitutional law scholar and adviser to Ron Paul, Edwin Viera, appeared on the syndicated radio broadcast and agreed with Alex Jones’ constitutional battle plan, with the declaration of independence as the centerpiece of legal authority.

Ron Paul’s former congressional chief of staff and founder of the Von Mises institute, Lew Rockwell, also appeared on the special broadcast and concurred with Jones’ strategy that now is the time to launch our offensive and restore the republic.

The right of the people to reconstitute their government if it becomes oppressive and onerous is clearly outlined in the Declaration of Independence.

“That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

Preamble, Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776.

In the aftermath of petitions from all 50 states to secede being posted on the White House website and signed by over a million Americans, the secessionist movement has been portrayed as anti-American, unpatriotic and even treasonous. In reality, as Ron Paul has emphasized, it is as American as apple pie and George Washington.

The most popular petition out of all 50 that have been posted on the White House website applies to Texas and reads as follows;

“The US continues to suffer economic difficulties stemming from the federal government’s neglect to reform domestic and foreign spending. The citizens of the US suffer from blatant abuses of their rights such as the NDAA, the TSA, etc. Given that the state of Texas maintains a balanced budget and is the 15th largest economy in the world, it is practically feasible for Texas to withdraw from the union, and to do so would protect it’s citizens’ standard of living and re-secure their rights and liberties in accordance with the original ideas and beliefs of our founding fathers which are no longer being reflected by the federal government.”

The call for states to secede from the union, one now backed by over a million Americans, is part of a wider disenfranchisement with how the country has been infested and hijacked by a crony political elite and the principles of the founders decimated.

As over a million Americans express their disenfranchisement with the federal government by supporting a secessionist movement that has spread like wildfire, it is time to call for a new declaration of independence and a new commitment to restore the Republic in the face of an enemy that has subverted America from within.

The United States government has been seized by domestic and foreign banking cartels. This fact is so transparently obvious that talking heads on CNBC now laugh about it.

While Americans are being told to brace for tax hikes, spending cuts and a myriad of other austerity measures, the Federal Reserve has been sending trillions of dollars to foreign banks.

The federal government is supposed to represent the states, but it doesn’t, it represents the interests of the political and banking elite who themselves have no allegiance whatsoever to America.

Infowars is calling on patriots to start a movement to draft Ron Paul as the head of a brand new effort to restore the Republic, restore the bill of rights and opt out of the counterfeit America the banking elite has subverted and fashioned to serve their own interests.

The establishment media is already demonizing the secessionist movement as a rag-tag group of fringe kooks and paranoid racists, when in reality as the Daily Caller uncovered, it is comprised of former Marines, parents, business owners and ordinary mechanics.

Meanwhile, Obama supporters and other statists have called on the government to punish those putting their signatures to the secession petitions by having them stripped of their citizenship, deported and exiled.

It’s time to re-assert the narrative on secession and put it in its proper context, which is not an infantile reaction to the fact that Barack Obama won the election, but an expression of extreme uneasiness at the direction in which the country is heading, a widespread discontent that has been ongoing for long before Obama even took office, and a new commitment calling on states to nullify unconstitutional laws andregulations and secede from the increasingly tyrannical federal government.

Watch Ron Paul’s farewell speech below in which he skewers authoritarianism in all its forms and captures the true spirit of liberty which should drive the movement to secede from the federal government and reconstitute America under the Declaration of Independence.

White House secede petitions reach 675,000 signatures, 50 state participation

Less than a week after a New Orleans suburbanite petitioned the White House to allow Louisiana to secede from the United States, petitions from seven states have collected enough signatures to trigger a promised review from the Obama administration.

By 6:00 a.m. EST Wednesday, more than 675,000 digital signatures appeared on 69 separate secession petitions covering all 50 states, according to a Daily Caller analysis of requests lodged with the White House’s “We the People” online petition system.

A petition from Vermont, where talk of secession is a regular feature of political life, was the final entry.

Petitions from AlabamaFloridaGeorgiaLouisianaNorth CarolinaTennessee and Texas residents have accrued at least 25,000 signatures, the number the Obama administration says it will reward with a staff review of online proposals. (RELATED: Will Texas secede? Petition triggers White House review)

The Texas petition leads all others by a wide margin. Shortly before 9:00 a.m. EST Wednesday, it had attracted 94,700 signatures. But a spokesperson for Gov. Rick Perry said Tuesday afternoon that he does not support the idea of his state striking out on its own.

“Gov. Perry believes in the greatness of our Union and nothing should be done to change it. But he also shares the frustrations many Americans have with our federal government,” according to a statement from the governor’s office.

A backlash Monday night saw requests filed with the White House to strip citizenship rights from Americans who signed petitions to help states secede. (RELATED: Anti-secession forces fight back with White House deportation petitions)

And in a similar nose-thumbing aimed at Texas’ conservative majority, progressives from the liberal state capital of Austin responded Monday with a petition to secede from their state if Texas as a whole should decide to leave the Union.

Late Tuesday a second group of Texans, this one from Houston, lodged their own White House petition. Secession-minded Texans, they wrote, “are mentally deficient and [we] do not want them representing us. We would like more education in our state to eradicate their disease.”

Houstonian “Kimberly F” — The White House does not provide last names — submitted the petition. She told The DC in an email that ”we need both sides presented, or we all look like a bunch of fools.”

A group from El Paso, too, wants no part of an independent Texas. “Allow the city of El Paso to secede from the state of Texas,” their petition reads. “El Paso is tired of being a second class city within Texas.”

But smaller petitions like theirs are a political side show of a political side show. One effort, aimed at Missourians, called for a nationwide catered pizza party to celebrate when the Show Me State left the U.S. (RELATED: Pizza party! White House petition silliness gets cheesy)

For all of you naysayers out there, America was never intended to be a nation, it was supposed to be a confederation of independent States that retained their own sovereignty, and the federal government was to have limited responsibilities. However, over time the dull and ignorant drank the kool-aid of unity and now we have a tyrant deciding which direction to wipe our backside. That’s not advice, it’s an order, and I for one do not need that kind of bulling in my life. If American’s had enough common sense to read history and figure out why we should be sovereign States, we would not be in this mess. We are not fooled by this exercise, and expected severe blowback when we signed up, so let it come we don’t give a shit.

Florida man describes being shot by police Taser as he sprayed fire with garden hose

  BY KAMEEL STANLEY                     TAMPA BAY TIMES

PINELLAS PARK — The fire was all around Dan Jensen.

He could see it. He could smell it. He could hear it.

It was close enough to touch. It was burning down his neighbor's house. It was creeping toward Jensen's own fence 10 feet away, and he started spraying the fire with his hose.

Police ordered Jensen to get back, and he complied.

But after a few minutes passed without firefighters arriving, a frustrated Jensen stepped forward and leaned down to grab the skinny gray garden hose once again.

That's when he heard the order.

"Hit 'em! Take him down! Tase him!"

Within moments, Jensen was on the ground. He felt electric.

"It was all over me," Jensen said. "Crawling all over me."

The 42-year-old commercial fisherman is still struggling to comprehend exactly how things deteriorated so quickly Thursday. He said he doesn't understand why police shot him with a Taser that night as he tried to battle a house fire at 3420 Beechwood Ter. N.

Jensen's family, friends and neighbors have been quick to defend him and accuse police of crossing a line.

"It was wrong," he said. "There's no way around it. … I was fighting a fire. I wasn't fighting police. I thought they were here to help me. Instead, they hurt me."

Police said they can sympathize with the stress Jensen was under. But they said he put himself and officers in danger when he refused to back down from fighting the fire.

Pinellas Park Capt. Sanfield Forseth told the Tampa Bay Times authorities could have even charged Jensen with obstruction, but decided against it.

Jensen's attorney, Heidi Imhof, said she believes authorities are trying to deflect attention from their actions that night. She called the Taser use "excessive force."

"They can't just Taser anyone," she said. "He's an unarmed person on his private property trying to fight a fire."

Imhof said the officers had other options. They could have yanked Jensen away, she said, or just turned off the water.

The agency's policy says officers must issue a warning before using a Taser, "except when such warning could provide a tactical advantage to the subject."

Imhof said her client was never warned.

Jensen said he's "disappointed" in police.

He said that when they arrived on the scene, they told him to back off and let insurance take care of it. He did for a few minutes but grew impatient and irate. He picked up the hose again because he thought firefighters weren't getting there soon enough.

Officials told the Times it took six minutes for fire fighters to respond.

"That's my home," Jensen said Monday, his voice breaking. "That's my family."

Many years ago, my wife and I decided to start attending church, but which one became the issue. We decide to just visit various Churches on a weekly basis, and never gave a thought to why there were so many flavors to choose from. Needless to say, it was not long before we noticed that they were more of a social club than a place of worship.

We already had the commitment to be Christians, but it became apparent there were many kinds of Christians, and that did not make sense to us.

How can there be more than one kind of Christian, made as much sense as, how can there be more than one kind of American?

Next, I decided to study the Bible in an effort to discover what a Christian really is, and that led me to spending fifteen years accumulating a massive theological library, WITH THE RESULT BEING, there is only one way to be a saved Christian, and that is to understand and follow the doctrines in Scripture, and submit to them in all things, not relying on your own understanding, but on the Grace of the Lord God Almighty.

This idea of being called a Christian, and being a Christian are not the same thing. Just as being called an American, and being one is not the same thing, because in both cases, there are doctrines one must understand and accept as the final word. For a Christian they are in the Bible, and for Americans they are in the Constitution, the bill of rights, Declaration of Independence, and the Federalist Papers. No other sources are legitimate.

In today’s world, that is a totally rejected requirement by the majority of Christians, and Americans, and this apostasy is not just in America, but worldwide. Humanity has been infected with false doctrine and now believe they alone can decide what is right and wrong, and not just for their self, but for everyone everywhere.

For many centuries, silver-tongued preachers have distorted what being a Christian is, and likewise, for centuries, silver-tongued Politian’s with the assistance of the news media and educators have done likewise to Americans.

The result is, there are fewer and fewer real Christians and real Americans, and an over abundance of apostates who believe the human mind can decide what is true and what is false. Some even reject the existence of truth.

I’m only writing this because there may be people reading it that are confused as to why America is fast becoming a totalitarian police state, and they are being confronted by a government they no longer support, but are not sure why. Many are only concerned with their financial condition, and fail to understand why they cannot make ends meet, or afford a decent home. Many more have no clue that their freedom is under attack because their lifestyle is the constant pursuit of entertainment, and other kinds of personal pleasure. Others are so caught up in the two party political system they are blind to it being part of the problem and not the solution. Still, others are died in the wool enemies of freedom from excessive government control.

To them I say, you have no right to be in this country, and should be deported, just as I would say to an activist Muslim you have no right to attend this Church as a member. It makes no sense to let your enemies infiltrate your domain.

Now, as far as giving the reader a treatise on what America is supposed to be, I will refer you to a much higher intellect than mine, and her name is Publius Huldah, Her article is published today on http://anationbeguiled.com and I highly recommend you give it considerable thought if you want to be a free American, and not a beggar of the government.  OR, if you are reading this at some later date, go to her site at http://publiushuldah.wordpress.com/

By Publius Huldah

 

We are Americans. We are resourceful. When doors are slammed in our faces, we find another way.  Since five (5) lawless judges on the U.S. supreme Court betrayed us by failing to declare the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“obamacare”) unconstitutional; since we may be stuck with Obama for four more years; 1  and since a Democrat-controlled U.S. Senate will not repeal Obamacare, we must find another way.

There is another way. Here it is, and it comes from Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence.

Nullification Resolutions for State Legislatures

1. Resolved, That the States composing the United States of America are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to the federal government; but that, with the Constitution for the United States, they established a federal government for limited purposes only.  That they delegated to this federal government only limited and enumerated powers; and reserved, each State to itself, all remaining powers, along with the right to their own self-government.

That whenever the federal government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.

That to these Principles, each State agreed as a State, and as the Parties to the Constitution.

That the federal government is not a party to the Constitution, but is merely the creature of the Constitution; and as the mere creature, was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to it; since that would have made the creature’s will, and not the Constitution, the measure of its powers.  That as in all other cases of compact among powers having no common judge, each State has an equal right to judge for itself as to whether the creature has committed infractions, and as to the mode and measure of redress.

2. Resolved, That Art. I, Sec. 2, of the Constitution of The State of Tennessee acknowledges the Principle that the doctrine of nonresistance against arbitrary power and oppression is absurd, slavish, and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.

3. Resolved, That in the Constitution of the United States, THE PEOPLE ordained and established a Federation of Sovereign States which united only for THE LIMITED PURPOSES enumerated in the Constitution: national defense, international commerce and relations; and domestically the creation of an uniform commercial system:  Weights & measures, patents & copyrights, a monetary system based on gold & silver, bankruptcy laws, mail delivery and road building. That the 10th  Amendment to the Constitution also declares that “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.”

That nowhere in the Constitution of the United States was any power granted to Congress to make laws respecting the medical care of THE PEOPLE; and that nowhere in the Constitution are powers over this matter prohibited to the States.

4. Resolved, That Art. I, Sec. 1 of the Constitution of the United States provides that all legislative Powers granted by that Constitution are vested in CONGRESS; therefore, Departments within the Executive Branch are forbidden to make any “rules” or “laws” of general application whatsoever.

That administrative rules being promulgated by the Department of Health and Human Services, one of the executive Departments of the federal government, to be set forth in Title 45 of the Code of Federal Regulations, and which pretend to regulate the medical care of THE PEOPLE throughout the several States; are altogether void, and of no force, as in violation of Art. I, Sec.1, of the federal Constitution.

That as matters pertaining to the “medical care”, “health”, and “human services” of THE PEOPLE are nowhere delegated to the federal government by the federal Constitution; but are among the countless multitudes of matters reserved to the States or THE PEOPLE; the federal Department of Health and Human Services is itself an unlawful Department, and its mere existence an affront to the Constitution; and all of the powers it exercises are usurped powers as outside the scope of the powers delegated to the federal government by our Constitution.

That if the pretended “rules” of this spurious federal Department should stand, these conclusions would flow from them; that unelected bureaucrats within the Executive Branch of the federal government may force upon The States, THE PEOPLE, the medical profession, and The Churches their own ideas of what others must and must not do in the area of medical care; and may force upon them their own ideas of what medical treatments each person shall be provided or denied.

That this spurious federal Department will further send out swarms of officers to trespass upon hospitals, doctors’ offices, other places of provision of medical care, and premises of religious institutions, to harass providers of medical services, dictate to them as to what specific medical treatments they must provide and are forbidden to provide to their patients.

To this abomination is added the additional affront that the objects of these pretended “rules” are altogether outside the scope of the enumerated powers THE PEOPLE delegated to the federal government in our Constitution.

That the Departments within the Executive Branch of the federal government have established a pattern of unlawfully functioning as legislators, when they write “agency rules”; as executives, when they investigate and prosecute violations of “agency rules”; and as judges and juries when they decide whether violations of their “agency rules” have occurred and impose punishment.  Thus the Executive Branch unlawfully functions as legislator, accuser, judge & jury, in violation of the Constitution and of the Principles of Separation of Power and of Checks and Balances.

5. Resolved, That all aspects of the medical care of THE PEOPLE, not being anywhere delegated to the United States by the Constitution, or prohibited by The Constitution to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to THE PEOPLE.  Therefore, power over this matter is reserved solely and exclusively to the respective States and THE PEOPLE, each within its or their own territory.

6. Resolved, That to take from the States all the powers of self-government and to transfer all powers to a general and consolidated national government, in defiance of the Constitution which was ordained and established by THE PEOPLE, is not for the peace, happiness or prosperity of THE PEOPLE.

Therefore This State is determined to refuse to submit to undelegated powers exercised over them by the federal government; and rejects altogether the notion that the federal government may exercise unlimited powers over them.

That in cases of an abuse of the delegated (enumerated) powers, the members of the federal government, being chosen by the people, a change by the people would be the constitutional remedy.

But, where powers are usurped which have not been delegated to the federal government –when the federal government acts outside of, and in defiance of, the federal Constitution by exercising powers not delegated to it by that Constitution; then a nullification of the unlawful act is the rightful remedy.

Thus every State has a natural right – which pre-dates & pre-exists the federal Constitution – to nullify of their own authority all such lawless assumptions of power within the boundaries of their State.  That without this pre-existing natural and original right, they would be under the dominion, absolute and unlimited, of whoever in the federal government chooses to exercise tyrannical powers over them.

The States alone are The Parties to the compact; and thus are solely authorized to judge in the last resort of the powers exercised under it.  Congress, the Executive Branch, and the Judicial Branch are not parties to the contract; but are merely the creatures of the compact (Federalist No. 33, 5th para).  As mere creatures, they may exercise no powers other than those enumerated powers specifically delegated to them.

7. Resolved, That the misconstructions long and unlawfully applied by the federal government to the so-called “taxing”, “general welfare”, “interstate commerce”, and “necessary and proper” clauses, to the effect that these clauses bestow unlimited powers on the federal government, goes to the destruction of all limits prescribed to their powers by the federal Constitution. That the true and genuine meaning of those clauses is as follows:

 a) The “taxing” and “general welfare” clauses:  Art. I, Sec. 8, cl.1, employs “general terms” which are “immediately” followed by the “enumeration of particular powers” which “explain and qualify”, by a “recital of particulars”, the general terms. It is “error” to focus on the “general expressions” and disregard “the specifications which ascertain and limit their import”; thus, to argue that the general expression provides “an unlimited power” is “an absurdity” (Federalist Paper No. 41, last 4 paras).

 The federal Constitution declares that “the power of Congress…shall extend to certain enumerated cases.  This specification of particulars…excludes all pretension to a general legislative authority, because an affirmative grant of special powers would be absurd, as well as useless, if a general authority was intended…” (Federalist No. 83, 7th para).

 b) The “interstate commerce” clause: “Commerce” is the buying and selling of goods – only that and nothing more. Webster’s American Dictionary (1828) says “commerce” is:

“an interchange or mutual change of goods, wares, productions, or property of any kind, between nations or individuals… by barter, or by purchase and sale; trade; traffick… inland commerce…is the trade in the exchange of commodities between citizens of the same nation or state.”

Federalist No. 22 (4th para), Federalist No. 42 (9th  &10th  paras), Federalist No. 44 (at 2.), andFederalist No. 56  (5th & 6th paras), explain the two purposes of the “interstate commerce” clause: (1) to prohibit the States from imposing tolls and tariffs on articles of import and export – goods & commodities – merchandize – as they are transported through the States for purposes of buying and selling; and (2) to permit the federal government to impose duties on imports and exports, both inland and abroad.

Article I, Sec. 8, cl.1; Art. I, Sec. 9, cls. 5 & 6; and Art. I, Sec.10, cls. 2 & 3, of the federal Constitution give express effect to these two purposes of the “interstate commerce” clause.

c) The “necessary and proper” clause:  This clause merely delegates to Congress the power to pass laws necessary and proper to execute its declared powers (Federalist No. 29, 4th para); a power to do something must be a power to pass all laws necessary and proper for the execution of that power (Federalist No. 33, 3rd para); “the constitutional operation of the intended government would be precisely the same if [this clause] were entirely obliterated as if [it] were repeated in every article” (No. 33, 2nd para); and thus the clause is “perfectly harmless”, a  tautology or redundancy”(No. 33, 3rd para).  Madison writes to the same effect in (Federalist No. 44, at 1.).

The clause merely permits the execution of powers already delegated and enumerated in the federal Constitution.  No additional substantive powers are granted by this clause.

8.  Resolved, That contrary to the misconstructions long and unlawfully applied by the federal government, the federal Constitution is one of enumerated powers only:

“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.  The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected.  The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people.” (Federalist No. 45 , 9th para)

“…the proposed government cannot be deemed a national one; since its jurisdiction extends to certain enumerated objects only, and leaves to the several States a residuary and inviolable sovereignity over all other objects…” (Federalist No. 39, 3rd para from end)

“…the general [federal] government is not to be charged with the whole power of making and administering laws. Its jurisdiction is limited to certain enumerated objects...” (Federalist No. 14, 8th para)

“…It merits particular attention … that the laws of the Confederacy [those made by Congress], as to the ENUMERATED and LEGITIMATE objects of its jurisdiction, will become the SUPREME LAW of the land…Thus the legislatures, courts, and magistrates, of the respective members [the States], will be incorporated into the operations of the national government AS FAR AS ITS JUST AND CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY EXTENDS…” [caps are Hamilton’s] (Federalist No. 27, last para).

That The Federalist Papers – and not the U.S. supreme Court – is the highest authority and evidence “of the general opinion of those who framed, and of those who accepted the Constitution of the US. on questions as to it’s genuine meaning”. 2 The supreme Court is merely a creature of the Constitution and is completely subject to its terms; and when judges on that and lower federal courts – who serve during “good Behaviour” only (Art. III, Sec. 1, cl. 1) – usurp powers, as they did with their lawless opinion upholding obamacare, they must be impeached and removed from office (Federalist No. 81, 8th para).

9. Resolved, That those within the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial Branches of the federal government are sweeping away all the barriers of our Constitution; and that no ramparts now remainbetween their unbridled and insatiable lust for power over THE PEOPLE except for the several States.

That if the States do not now resist all such blatantly unlawful usurpations of power, THE PEOPLE of their States will be delivered into abject slavery subject to the unbridled control of whosoever occupies the office of President.  Our Representatives in Congress have shirked their constitutional obligation to support the Constitution (Art. VI, cl. 3), by acquiescing in the blatant usurpations by the Executive Branch; and  have failed in their duty to impeach and remove those within the Executive Branch who usurp powers (Federalist No. 66, 2nd para, and No. 77, last para).  That the supreme Court long ago took the side of those who seek to exercise unlimited control over the States and THE PEOPLE; and that Congress has failed in its duty to impeach and remove federal judges who usurp powers (Federalist No. 81, 8th para).

That pursuant to Art. VI, cl. 3 of our federal Constitution, all State legislators, State Officers and State Judges take a solemn Oath to support our federal Constitution. Therefore, they are bound by sacred Oath to protect THE PEOPLE of their States from the usurpations of the federal government whose clear object is the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over the States and THE PEOPLE.

That our Framers anticipated the dangers we now face and provided wise counsel for such a time as this.  Federalist No. 28 (last 5 paras) states that when “the representatives of the people betray their constituents”, the people have no recourse but to exert “that original right of self-defense” [The Declaration of Independence, 2nd para], against “the usurpations of the national rulers” (5th para from end).

That in a Federation of States united under a federal government for only limited purposes,

“…the people… are…the masters of their own fate. Power being almost always the rival of power, the general [federal] government will at all times stand ready to check the usurpations of the state governments, and these will have the same disposition towards the general governmentThe people, by throwing themselves into either scale, will infallibly make it preponderate. If their rights are invaded by either, they can make use of the other as the instrument of redress…” (4th para from end)

Thus, THE STATE LEGISLATURES are the ultimate bulwark of The People and The Ultimate Human Protectors of our Constitutional Republic:

“It may safely be received as an axiom in our political system, that the State governments will, in all possible contingencies, afford complete security against invasions of the public liberty by the national authority. Projects of usurpation cannot be masked under pretenses so likely to escape the penetration of select bodies of men, as of the people at large. The legislatures will have better means of information. They can discover the danger at a distance; and possessing all the organs of civil power, and the confidence of the people, they can at once adopt a regular plan of opposition, in which they can combine all the resources of the community. They can readily communicate with each other in the different States, and unite their common forces for the protection of their common liberty.” (3rd para from end)

The last paragraph of Federalist No. 28 recognizes that when the federal government seeks

“… a despotism over the great body of the people … [the people] are in a situation, through the medium of their State governments, to take measures for their own defense…”

10. Resolved, That because men are corrupt and may not be trusted with power, the federal Constitution fixed the limits to which, and no further, the federal government may go.  Would we be wise if we permit the federal government to destroy the limits the Constitution places upon its powers? Would we be wise if we permit unelected bureaucrats in the Executive Departments of the federal government to regulate every aspect of our lives?

That if those who administer the federal government be permitted to transgress the limits fixed by the federal Constitution, by disregarding the limits on its powers set forth therein, then annihilation of the State Governments, and the erection upon their ruins, of a general consolidated  government, will be the inevitable consequence.

That the several States, being sovereign and independent, have the unquestionable right to judge of infractions to the federal Constitution; and that nullification by those Sovereign States of all unauthorized acts of the federal government is the rightful remedy.

THEREFORE, This State, recurring to its natural rights in matters outside the scope of the powers delegated to the federal government, declares Obamacare void, and of no force, and will take measures of its own for providing that neither that act, nor any others of the federal government not plainly and intentionally authorized by the Constitution, shalt be exercised in any manner whatsoever within This State.

Notes:

1. The above is patterned on Thomas Jefferson’s various writings on nullification, including The Kentucky Resolutions of 1798, written by him in response to the alien and sedition acts passed by Congress which purported to grant to the President tyrannical powers with respect to aliens & “seditious” words.

2. These Resolutions focus on an Act of Congress and administrative rules being made by a Department within the Executive Branch of the federal government. This Model may be easily adapted to address Executive Orders which are outside the scope of the President’s enumerated powers; and supreme Court opinions which exceed their enumerated powersand disregard the federal Constitution, such as their lawless rulings upholding Obamacare, banning public expressions of the Faith of Our Fathers  in order to convert us into a secular humanist State, and misapplying Sec. 1 of the 14th Amendment in order to undermine the morals of the People and destroy the residuary sovereignity of The States.

3. Several attorneys, historians, and others who claim special knowledge on this subject have asserted that States have no right to nullify anything the federal government does; that the States and The People must submit to the federal government no matter what it does; that only the federal government may question the federal government; that the federal government created by the Constitution is the exclusive and final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to it; and the opinion of five supreme Court judges, not the Constitution, is the sole measure of its powers.

Such people may not understand the distinction between abuses of delegated powers (e.g., unwise bankruptcy laws – Art. I, Sec. 8, cl. 4), for which election of better Representatives is the answer; andusurpations of powers which have not been delegated and are thus outside the lawful reach of the federal government (e.g., Obamacare), for which nullification is the proper answer. When any branch of the federal government steps outside of the Constitution to make laws or “rules” or issue “orders” or “opinions” which exceed their delegated powers; the States must resort to those original rights which pre-date & pre-exist Our Constitution to nullify such usurpations by the federal government of undelegated powers.

4. Others who claim special knowledge on this subject insist that a single State may not nullify any act of the federal government; that only a majority of the States acting in concert may do so.

They overlook (among other things) the nature of the laws protested in the Kentucky & Virginia Resolutions. Those Resolutions addressed laws made by Congress which purported to grant to the President certain dictatorial powers over “aliens” and “seditious words”. The States have no means of stopping the President from enforcing such laws since the President has the raw power to send out armed thugs to arrest people by night; and then to prosecute, convict, & execute them in secret tribunals and chambers. The States may object – but they can’t stop it. The supreme Court may denounce it, but can’t stop it. Only Congress can put an end to it by repealing its usurpatious law and by impeaching & removing a usurping President (Federalist No. 66, 2nd para & No. 77, last para).

But when Congress by means of a law (which is outside the scope of its delegated powers); or the President by means of an executive order (which is outside the scope of his delegated powers); or federal executive departments by means of administrative rules (which they are altogether prohibited by Art. I, Sec. 1 from making); or the supreme Court by means of opinions which contradict Our Constitution; purport to require THE STATES  or THE PEOPLE and THE CHURCHES to do something, or stop doing somethingthen of course THE STATES – on an individual basis – have both the POWER and the DUTY (imposed by their Art. VI, cl. 3 Oaths of Office) to nullify such usurpatious acts within the boundaries of their States.

These Model Resolutions set forth the Authorities on which they are based, so that State Legislators and Citizens may propose them in their State Legislatures with complete confidence that Our Framers “have their backs”. PH

Endnotes:

1 We can get rid of him earlier if we send enough people to Congress in 2016 with the spine to impeach & convict him and Biden. The Federalist Papers (cited above) are clear that Presidents should be impeached & removed for usurpations of power.

2 See the Minutes of March 4, 1825 of the Board of Visitors of the University of Virginia  (Thomas Jefferson & James Madison were present) where they voted to make The Federalist Papers one of the texts books for the Law School:

“Resolved that it is the opinion of this board that as to … the distinctive principles of the government of our own state, and of that of the US. the best guides are to be found in 1. the Declaration of Independance, as the fundamental act of union of these states. 2. the book known by the title of `The Federalist’, being an authority to which appeal is habitually made by all, and rarely declined or denied by any as evidence of the general opinion of those who framed, and of those who accepted the Constitution of the US. on questions as to it’s genuine meaning. 3. the Resolutions of the General assembly of Virginia in 1799. on the subject of the Alien and Sedition laws, which appeared to accord with the predominant sense of the people of the US. 4. the Valedictory address of President Washington, as conveying political lessons of peculiar value. and that in the branch of the school of Law, which is to treat on the subject of Civil polity, these shall be used as the text and documents of the school.” [pages 82-83, boldface added].

America, How Did We Screw Things Up So Badly?

November 12th, 2012 by

http://www.zombie-slayer.com/neal/

Neal Ross

The title of this piece is something I have been asking myself for quite some time now. I know that I am not the only one who sees it, but sometimes I feel as though I am among an ever diminishing few who can see that our country is slowly but surely self destructing. In 1781 Thomas Jefferson provided us a hint as to what could bring this about. From his Notes on the State of Virginia, " It is the manners and spirit of a people which preserve a republic in vigor. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution."

          Be ye Republican or Democrat, like it or not, our country was founded upon certain principles which allowed us to become great among nations. As long as we adhered to those principles, did not tinker with the plan so to speak, we would continue to be great. But, unfortunately we have forgotten those principles and allowed evil and corrupt men to gain the seats of power, resulting in the mess we now find ourselves in.

          In an essay published in 1748, Samuel Adams stated that "[N]either the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt. He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who, so far as his power and influence extend, will not suffer a man to be chosen into any office of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man."

          That job, the selecting of wise and virtuous men, was bestowed upon us, the electorate. But, how are we to accomplish it with any level of proficiency when the majority of the populace are totally ignorant of the principles upon which this country was founded, and when we allow our emotions or needs dictate who we will cast our votes for?

          Now I am not saying people today are stupid, but they are ignorant. Being ignorant simply means that they are lacking knowledge or education in general or in a specific subject. But whose fault is that when knowledge is readily available? Whose fault is that when people will spend all day glued to a television watching sporting events, but they won't take the time to pick up a book and read something that may educate and inform them?

          To put it plainly, the fault lies with us, the American people. We have allowed our government to grow into this monstrous beast that devours our liberty and seeks to enslave us. We have not held those whose job it was to protect our rights and liberty accountable.

          It doesn't matter who is in office, I always hear two things, and they are quite similar. First, people say that the guy in office inherited this mess from the guy before him, and secondly, we have to give the guy a chance to fix the mess left to him by his predecessor.

          That alone shows how ignorant people are as to how our system of government was supposed to function. According to the Constitution the president cannot create law, that power is delegated solely to Congress. The president can either sign a bill into law, or veto it, nothing more. So, when people cast their vote for a presidential candidate, be they Republican or Democrat, based upon all the things this person says they will do, then they do not know how our government is supposed to work. Instead they should be voting for Senators and members of the House who will push forward bills to do these things.

          However, like it or not, we are a nation of laws, with the Constitution being the Supreme Law of the land. In the 1866 Supreme Court case of Ex Parte Milligan, the court ruled, " The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and people, equally in war and in peace, and covers with the shield of its protection all classes of men, at all times, and under all circumstances. No doctrine, involving more pernicious consequences, was ever invented by the wit of men than that any of its provisions can be suspended during any of the great exigencies of government. Such a doctrine leads directly to anarchy or despotism."

          As I was growing up I would walk down the hall and pass a framed needlepoint that my mother had made and hung on the wall. I later found out that it was a quote taken from John F. Kennedy's Inaugural Address. It said, " And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you ­ ask what you can do for your country." How many people go to the polls today and cast their vote with that thought in mind?

          There is a quote that is supposedly attributed to a Scottish Lawyer named Alexander Fraser Tytler which best describes the process that is occurring in America today, " A democracy will continue to exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury.  From then on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship." With our nation currently being $16 trillion in debt, I would say we are well on our way to fulfilling that prediction.

          Again, who is to blame for all this? You could say it is our elected officials, but that is like saying who is responsible for an unruly kid, the child, or the parents whose job it was to watch him and discipline him when he misbehaves?

          So, how did all this happen, how did we let the greatest country on earth to go from a land where our rights and liberty was of paramount importance to a land where we are controlled and regulated by the very agents who are sworn to protect our rights? It is pretty simple, and can be summed up by something Josef Stalin once said, " America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within."

          You may be saying that communism died with the fall of the Berlin wall and the ensuing collapse of the Soviet Union. Not so! Just because a person does not come down sick does not mean that viruses do not surround them. Communism is alive and well, and is slowly destroying this country.

          I know that many of those reading this do not remember the height of the Cold War, but one of the Soviet Leaders, Nikita Khrushchev once said ," I once said, "We will bury you," and I got into trouble with it. Of course we will not bury you with a shovel. Your own working class will bury you."

          There was a guy named Ernest Cuneo, who aside from being a professional football player, was a lawyer, newspaperman, and intelligence liaison. In 1969 he wrote that, in his farewell address, Vladimir Lenin stated, " Take your example from the good housewife who finds use for even a broken shoestring. A good Communist finds use for everything, and nothing is more useful than a useful idiot." And believe me, America is full of useful idiots these days.

          I wonder, how many people have sat down and read the 10 Planks of the Communist Manifesto? In this pamphlet Marx talks about how a capitalist society would eventually be replaced by socialism, and then eventually communism. In Section Two of his manifesto, Marx lists 10 things that must occur for socialism, and eventually communism, to take over in a capitalist society. Take a few moments to think about these things, and then ask yourself where America is headed.   

1. Abolition of private property and the application of all rents of land to public purposes.

What do you think the Bureau of Land Management and all the zoning laws are about? Do some research into allodial titles as well if you think YOU truly own your land.

2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.

And yet we constantly hear that the rich, or the bourgeoisie as Marx called them, are not paying their fair share.

3. Abolition of all rights of inheretance.

We're on our way with this with estate taxes or probate laws.

4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.

What have I been writing about for all these years? The Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, NDAA, all designed to label ANYONE who disagrees with the policy of their government as a terrorist threat, (rebel).

5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.

Two words, Federal Reserve.

6. Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State.

Here again we have the Department of Transportation, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Interstate Commerce Commission, and the Federal Communications Commission, not to mention a whole slew of Presidential Executive Orders, which I have also written about in the past.

7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

Department of Agriculture, the Department of Commerce and Labor, Department of the Interior, the EPA, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, National Park Service all sound like governmental control of the land to me.

8. Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.

Does minimum wage sound familiar? How about these volunteer work forces President Obama mentioned during his first run at president in 08? What about Labor Unions, don't they sound like industrial armies in that they 'urge' their members to vote for certain laws or candidates?

9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries, gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of population over the country.

What about the slow death of privately owned farms and the growth of huge entities like Monsanto? Or you could check out the Planning Reorganization Act of 1949, and Executive Orders 11,647 and 11731 as well as Public Law 89-136 all of which provide for forced relocation and forced sterilization programs.

10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.

This is where they screwed us over royally, and I'd like to take a bit more time discussing this one.

          Almost every single founding father, at one point or another, discussed the importance of educating the people as to the values of liberty and the principles upon which our republic was founded.

          Samuel Adams said, " No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved."

          John Adams said, "Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of freedom."

          Dr. Benjamin Rush said, " Freedom can exist only in the society of knowledge. Without learning, men are incapable of knowing their rights."

          Noah Webster said, " Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country."

          James Madison said, " Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives. Learned Institutions ought to be favorite objects with every free people. They throw that light over the public mind which is the best security against crafty and dangerous encroachments on the public liberty."

          Thomas Jefferson said, " I think by far the most important bill in our whole code is that for the diffusion of knowledge among the people. No other sure foundation can be devised, for the preservation of freedom and happiness…"

          And finally, James Monroe, the fifth President of the United States for those who may not have heard his name before, once said, " It is only when the people become ignorant and corrupt, when they degenerate into a populace, that they are incapable of exercising their sovereignty. Usurpation is then an easy attainment, and an usurper soon found. The people themselves become the willing instruments of their own debasement and ruin."

          So you tell me, pupils of the public indoctrination, I mean education system, how well do YOU understand the Constitution and the Bill of Rights? The easiest way for a government to assume powers over the people they are supposed to represent is if the people do not know the limits to the powers of their government in the first place. If government gains control of the educational system, they can dictate how much our children are taught about the principles upon which this nation was founded.  We trusted government to do what is right, to educate our kids regarding these vital principles, but government let us down. While we were too busy watching TV whole generations of kids have been indoctrinated into these socialist principles and now we have an army of voting youth who are of the belief that it is, in fact, the government's responsibility to take care of them, to make the playing field level for everyone. And if you care to look it up, that is what communism is all about, creating a society where everyone is equal.

          You may think that by voting Republican or Democrat you are changing directions this country takes, but you would be wrong. Since 1945 the Democrats have had complete control of government; the Presidency and both houses of Congress eleven times. Twice have the Republicans enjoyed such an advantage. Yet, on fourteen other occasions there were divisions among the powers of government. In some instance there was a Republican President with the Democrats having control of Congress, or vice versa. Other times the Democrats would hold the Senate, while the Republicans controlled the House.

          So you can't blame either party, because a sitting president has the authority to veto any legislation which is destructive to the principles upon which this country was founded. Sitting members of Congress can vote against any law which violates the Constitutional limits to their power or infringes upon our rights. Yet NONE of this has happened. BOTH parties are equally to blame, and we are more to blame because we cared more about what was on TV than reading the writings of our founders and voting according to our conscience, and not for the lesser of two evils.

          And remember what Stalin said about our resistance being threefold? Well think about the spiritual life of this nation. Look to see how God has been chased out of our schools, our thoughts, and our hearts. Is it any wonder this country is falling apart at the seams?

          From his Notes on the State of Virginia Thomas Jefferson said, " All the powers of government, legislative, executive, and judiciary, result to the legislative body…The concentrating these in the same hands is precisely the definition of despotic government. It will be no alleviation that these powers will be exercised by a plurality of hands, and not by a single one. 173 despots would surely be as oppressive as one." He may as well have been talking about the 535 members of Congress and the one President we have in our federal government, as they all seek the same thing, more power for them, and more bondage for us.

          And finally, this would not be complete if I did not mention the subject of immigration. I know that you all believe in this whole theory that this nation was built by immigrants. But in Federalist 2, John Jay had something to say about that. He stated, " With equal pleasure I have as often taken notice that Providence has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people–a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs, and who, by their joint counsels, arms, and efforts, fighting side by side throughout a long and bloody war, have nobly established general liberty and independence."

          Now you look at the influx of immigrants into this country today, both legal and illegal, do they all have the same religion, the same language, the same thoughts on the principles of government, and the same in our manners and customs? I think not.

          From the Children of the Crucible, Theodore Roosevelt said, "From the melting pot of life in this free land all men and woman of all nations who come hither emerge as Americans and nothing else. They must have renounced completely and without reserve all allegiance to the land from which they or their forefathers came. And it is a binding duty on every citizen of this country in every important crisis to act solidly with all his fellow Americans, having regard only to the honor and interest of America, treating every other nation purely on its conduct in that crisis, without reference to his ancestral predilections or antipathies. If he does not act, he is false to the teachings and lives of Washington and Lincoln; he is not entitled to any part or lot in our country and he should be sent out of it."

          But no, we must be politically correct, we must practice multiculturalism and respect the traditions of our immigrants. Would their country do the same for us? No, this is America and by God if they come here they play by our rules or they can go home! So what we have is not a melting pot where all immigrants come out as Americans, but an ethnic mix where people come here expecting America to provide them with all the benefits they have not worked a day in their life to earn, and at the same time they walk around protesting how bad this country is. It makes me sick!

          But there we have it, that is what has gone wrong in America. There are two final quotes that I would like to leave you with as I close out this long winded tirade. First, from the Declaration of the Causes and Necessities of Taking Up Arms, " Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them if we basely entail hereditary bondage on them." And secondly, John Adams once said, "But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever."

           Well, there you have it, what has gone wrong with our founders experiment as to whether a people could be trusted to govern themselves. This last election, in which Barack Obama readily won over Mitt Romney, (not that Mitt Romney was such a great choice either), proved how far this country has fallen. When a candidate whose job performance has been pathetic, at best, who still has unanswered questions as to his eligibility to even hold office, who has two current scandals to resolve, both resulting in the loss of American lives, (the Benghazi attack and the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry), yet can easily be re-elected, it shows that the majority of the voting public are totally ignorant as to what this country stands/stood for.

          America, you will be held accountable for what you have allowed to happen, either in this life, or the next. For America HAS fallen, our constitution is all but dead, and the fat lady is warming up, getting ready to take the stage.

Neal is probably the best of citizen commentators, and has the highest regard for our freedom as anyone I have ever met, or read. All citizens regardless of intelligence or education WOULD DO WELL to learn from his articles, and then email him with your support. Those of you who disagree with his logic and knowledge WOULD DO WELL to kiss my ass, and go to hell. I’m sick of American degeneracy. When the cowards are hurting bad enough, just maybe, they will defend their freedom. But, I’m not holding my breath.

Four Ways The Fake Media Creates A False Reality

November 10th, 2012 by

 

THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA HAS ABUSED ITS POWER, AND THE ALTERNATIVE MEDIA IS DEMANDING ACCOUNTABILITY

http://www.pakalertpress.com

 

MEDIA CORRUPTION

1. Hyper-attention On A Particular Event, Issue, and Mantra.

The mainstream media exclusively focuses on a single storyline about an event or an issue, which has the effect of marginalizing other points of view that are equally valid, if not more so. Narratives, not facts and objective data, have taken center stage in the aspiring journalist’s mind. Journalists and editors who oversee the making of the news play the same role as screenwriters in the filmmaking process. Their power stems from the fact that the public looks at news as “real,” whereas they know movies are totally fake. But news in the United States and the West is the farthest thing from being real.

Journalists who are in the service of the U.S. intelligence community and other government intelligence agencies are messengers for power. Their job is to repeat government narratives and government mantras. For example, Al-Qaeda is a mantra, not an international terror organization that is at war with America. Read, “Al Qaeda And Human Consciousness: Al Qaeda, Al Qaeda. . . . An Incessant And Repetitive Public Discourse,” by Prof Michel Chossudovsky. The “Arab Spring” is another mantra that Washington has used to fulfill its foreign policy objectives in the Middle East.

The latest mantra that the mainstream media is using in a domestic context is the “fiscal cliff.” Media messengers for the tyrannical establishment do not discuss how the Federal Reserve’s private moneymachine, Wall Street bailouts, and the military-industrial complex’s wars have caused the skyrocketing of U.S. debt. They just keep repeating “fiscal cliff,” and then offer bipartisan solutions that will benefit the banksters in power while destroying the living standards of middle class taxpayers and workers.

By focusing on the “fiscal cliff,” rather than the Grand Canyon of Deception that is the unconstitutionalFederal Reserve system, the mainstream media legitimizes the looting and pillaging of the American people by the transnational banksters.

2. Production of Fake News Reports.

War propaganda is not a new feature of warfare, but the modern Western mass media has taken this art to its highest technological development. What the AmericanIsraeli, and Western media accomplished on the day of September 11, 2001, is simply astonishing. 9/11 was a riveting Hollywood production, from start to finish, from morning to nightfall. It made Hitler’s propaganda team weep from the beyond. But the official 9/11 story is just one example of how news is manufactured by the government in tandem with the press.

Examples abound in Syria. Propaganda stations like CNN, Al Jazeera, and BBC have reported on fake massacres by the Syrian government, made up the size of anti-Assad protests, and generally exaggerated the intensity of the hatred for Assad within Syria. We cannot rely on the official number of the people who have died in the conflict because the malicious media routinely makes up figures and repeats them until they become accredited as facts.

Up to now, the Western media has painted a very rosy picture of the anti-Assad “rebels” who are foreign-funded Jihadist terrorists, while minimizing the suffering and needless deaths of Assad’s supporters like Syrian-Palestinian actor Mohamad Rafea.

We can clearly see that the revolution in Syria is an imagined revolution and not a real revolution. The Arab Spring is not like an organic plague that spreads from country to country. The U.S., Turkey, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia transported the Arab Spring into Syria, and it met resistance from the politically aware Syrian people and the powerful Syrian state. This is natural because there was never a demand for a violent Jihadi revolution in Syria. The anti-government sentiments in Syria never reached the level of despair, unlike in Egypt, Bahrain, and other countries in the region.

3. Omission of Facts and Alternative Opinions.

Since the mainstream media operates in a politically constructed universe, facts that contradict the word of the U.S. government are suppressed. The integrity of the fake universe is preserved at the cost of destroying the real universe.

Those who have a different opinion of events that transformed America like 9/11 and the 2008 bankster bailout are ridiculed as crazy. When you express alternative opinions that conflict with the official narratives of the U.S. government you are accused of being paranoid, conspiracy theorizing, aiding Al-Qaeda, and drumming up fear for ratings. To learn more about how media propaganda against dissent works, read,“The Propaganda Battlefield: Militants Abroad, Conspiracy Theorists At Home.”

Canceling out reality may work for a while, but it has the last word. It is getting harder for the mainstream media to ridicule independent investigators as conspiracy theorists for pointing out that the U.S. and its dictatorial allies are sponsoring Jihadi terrorism against Syria. Even mainline journalists are beginning to admit it. How can they not? It is pretty tough to cover-up reality.

There are videos of Jihadist mercenaries mass executing civilians and the Western media spin machine is powerless in the face of this kind of explosive evidence. They will just look foolish if they say mass executions by anti-government terrorists isn’t happening and that all the blame for the crisis in Syria falls on Assad’s shoulders.

4.  Mass Indoctrination of The Public Through Myth and Ritual.

The example of the 9/11 ritual proves that we think mythically, not rationally. It is easy for a totalitarian government with vast media resources to condition the public and put it under a spell indefinitely. The trouble arises with the arrival of a competing narrative, one that is actually based on scientific facts as opposed to propaganda.

But a sustained media campaign to brainwash the public in combination with the trauma of terror can effectively keep the public under the government’s spell for a very long time. Read, “Seven Ways Events Like 7/7 Empower Socialized Warfare,” to learn about the effectiveness of false flag terrorism. Also, read,“7 Reasons Washington’s Grand Counter-Terrorism Myths Persist In The Face of Evidence.”

What is it about mass public rituals that galvanize political leaders and embolden them to take radical action that otherwise would not be accepted by the majority of the public? They are trigger events that create mass panic and chaos, resulting in greater government power over the minds of spellbound citizens. Martin S. Day, author of the book, ‘The Many Meanings of Myth,’ says there are six sociological purposes of cultural and social rituals, and you can read them here.

When an entire civilization is emotionally and intellectually invested in a particular myth, it is nearly impossible to divorce the civilization from the myth. How has the 9/11 myth benefited Western civilization? In terms of war, the West has been politically able to wage aggression against numerous innocent countries in the Middle East by holding up the 9/11 myth to the rest of the world as a moral justification for its war crimes.

But America and the West has also been destroyed because of the 9/11 myth and the illegitimate global war on terrorism. Economically, politically, morally, intellectually, and spiritually, Western governments are reaching the point of bankruptcy.

 

MEDIA CORRUPTION

 

Obama Wins A Second Term Now What?

November 7th, 2012 by

http://thedailybell.com/28253/Ron-Holland-Obama-Wins-A-Second-Term-Now-What

By Ron Holland

 

I'm certainly glad the election is finally over. While I have loved politics my entire life, this presidential election has gone on for over three years, including the GOP primaries, and I've had my fill of meaningless slogans and counter-slogans, lies and counter-lies. I had to quit watching political news the last few weeks, as I thought I would become physically sick if I watched any more establishment political "experts" give their required opinions and propaganda bites.

The 2012 presidential election has been like a ballgame hyped and built up over three years. We are programed to cheer and act out our sheep-like roles in partisan politics when, like the game, unless we have money bet on the outcome the actual winner will have absolutely no impact on our lives.

This was destined to be a close, statistically tied election, as get out the vote efforts included repetitive harping on its life-changing importance and the evils of the opposition candidates and party. The bottom line is that voting percentages generate credibility for the failed American political system.

"There's not a dime's worth of difference between the Democrat and Republican parties." George Wallace, 1966 Alabama governor and presidential candidate.

Note it now takes 71 cents to equal the purchasing power of a dime in 1966 – if you believe the false inflation statistics out of Washington. Actually, I could buy a soft drink for a dime in 1966 whereas today it is closer to $1.50. Check house prices even with the pullback or college tuition if you want an accurate inflation estimate.

It is reasonable to expect from Obama's second term more of the same as the first four years. The two main US political parties promote nearly identical policies; nothing will change from earlier Bush and Clinton administration policies. Of course, there will be a burst of optimism from Democrats and the usual rallying cries for everybody to come together to meet the challenges of the moment. This is just the usual garbage fed to the voting public after every presidential election.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but both presidents and the representatives we reelect to Congress only represent the powerful banking and economic interests that control the federal government and use it to further their power elite agenda. Real, productive citizens can only look to their government representatives to solve minor bureaucratic issues on lost checks, eligibility for this program or that or to listen only to their complaints and agenda.

In reality, the Senate and House of Representatives by necessity – except in the case of those few with actual philosophical convictions on the right or the left – only represent and govern based on the financial handouts and doors opened by powerful interests. This is the only way they can be reelected.

Why Romney Lost

Romney lost for two main reasons: First, as he correctly noted during the campaign, 47 percent of American families are dependent on government handouts and they voted for what was in their own best interests. Democracy is mob rule and the 47 percent, although with the best of intentions, are still only a mob out to get what they can from others who have earned or produced the wealth in the private sector.

"There are 47 percent who are with [Obama], who are dependent upon government, who believe they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you name it." – Mitt Romney

Still, there is a positive outcome with this depressing statistic. First, many government employees and those on the dole understand the problems of bureaucracy far better than Americans in the private sector because they are caught in the government trap themselves. They often have the courage to even vote against their best interests because they see what it has done to them personally.

Every TSA agent and government employee in non-essential services outside of the armed forces, real police and fire protection and real teachers – not the hundreds of thousands of unionized, make-work employees who use the system – are simply parasites.

Second, the GOP leadership antagonized the 10 percent of the Republican Party electorate who supported Ron Paul for President. Of course, the establishment is still deathly scared of the Ron Paul movement and their harsh treatment and the subsequent blowback on November 6 guarantees any discussion here will be verboten and seldom mentioned for obvious reasons. While some voted for Romney, a few – as the returns show – voted third-party and many like me just sat home on election day disgusted at the entire political charade. Romney lost because he needed a majority of this 10 percent to win yet those controlling his campaign simply threw this voting block away because it threatened powerful central bankingneocon and moneyed interests supporting the GOP.

While Romney would have made a better president than Obama in at least his rhetoric, as he pays lip service to conservative Republican values, in reality his neocon controllers would probably have made him a disaster in foreign policy.

And so over the next four years the people will be provoked and buy more guns they will never have the courage to use to defend themselves against an all-powerful government. The GOP will raise more money using faux social issues and an agenda they never really have any interest in standing up for. Obama will be painted as an evil, Muslim-born in God-knows-where socialist when in actuality he has no more power than Romney would have had to restore the America we loved and respected.

The game will go on until the time is up for our nation. In the meantime, austerity measures will dramatically increase, benefits and promises will be lost by the poor and remaining middle class citizens who really need them and taxes will rise, as will the risk of gold and wealth confiscation. Obama will be blamed, just as Romney would have been blamed had he been elected president, for this is how our regulatory/debt democracy works today in the 21st century. A failed system of central bank control leading a failed economy, a failing currency and a controlled system totally divorced from control or limitation by the citizens of America.

The Solution is to Change the Political Structure

The solution is a return to a limited, decentralized confederation form of government like our first legitimate American government, the Articles of Confederation. One that is responsible to the people and ultimately controlled by the voters with the iron-clad political tools of initiative and referendum like exists in Switzerland today, where voters have the right to reject legislation and laws or enact laws outside the power of controlled legislative, judiciary and executive branches of government. Until we return to the Articles of Confederation, America and our liberties are doomed to extinction by the hidden control of international banking and economic elites.

After the election you can expect appeals from "so-called" conservatives or libertarians wanting your hard-earned money to support this or that cause. They will claim time is running out, the next election is the most important in your lifetime, etc. Time is not running out; it ran out long ago, and voting for either party or most candidates is just an exercise in futility supporting the corrupt system that rules over you. We are serfs and mere subjects to a system and few understand or even recognize the control over us.

If you want to be a free people again educate yourself on the Swiss system of government and work for a return to the government for which our patriot founding fathers risked their lives and property, the Articles of Confederation. Supporting anything less is just deceiving ourselves and screwing our posterity. We may deserve the kind of government we have allowed to take over our country but our posterity deserve better.

The GOP Ron Paul for President campaigns in 2008 and 2012 clearly showed how the controlled, two-party system in the United States will allow no real opposition to its approved candidates in either party. You can bet your worthless vote that new Republican Party rules at the 2012 GOP convention and at the state level in the future will control any viable opposition candidates. The only current outlets for alternative political action are in doomed-to-fail third-party activities that are little more than allowed but controlled political opposition.

To restore the original American Republic, we must change the controlled monopoly political system of government that controls and destroys internally or externally all opposition. New candidates or even attempts at party control accomplish little when the same powerful interests control the political structure. We must work to remove the system in place and restore the limited government of our founding fathers, for they had devised a system that would work well today with our ease of transportation and communication.

Remember, our children and grandchildren deserve a better, more prosperous world and nation than we have left them at this point. It is time we as a generation man up for liberty to redeem ourselves in the tear-filled eyes of future generations. The American people must work peacefully to restore the Articles of Confederation now or else suffer the permanent consequences of the fall of America.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Mr. Holland is absolutely correct in all of the above. That’s what needs be done! HOWEVER, he did not tell the whole story! The division that exists in America is something that will never be corrected, without a permanent separation of the political classes, and a massive self-study of the things that have created their worldview being intentional by the power of the international Banking Cartel. America’s have been brainwashed, and became self centered to the point of being suicidal. Call it cognitive dissonance if you want, but it boils down to just being a bunch of stupid, stubborn, lazy, bastards, who really prefer being controlled. This old misanthropic curmudgeon would not bother to piss on their graves.

43 Trillion Dollar Racketeering and Money Laundering Lawsuit

October 31st, 2012 by

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/major-banks-governmental-officials-and-their-comrade-capitalists-targets-of-spire-law-group-llps-racketeering-and-money-laundering-lawsuit-seeking-return-of-43-trillion-to-the-united-states-treasury-175828861.html

Major Banks, Governmental Officials and Their Comrade Capitalists Targets of Spire Law Group, LLP's Racketeering and Money Laundering Lawsuit Seeking Return of $43 Trillion to the United States Treasury

NEW YORK, Oct. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Spire Law Group, LLP's national home owners' lawsuit, pending in the venue where the "Banksters" control their $43 trillion racketeering scheme (New York) – known as the largest money laundering and racketeering lawsuit in United States History and identifying $43 trillion($43,000,000,000,000.00) of laundered money by the "Banksters" and their U.S. racketeering partners and joint venturers – now pinpoints the identities of the key racketeering partners of the "Banksters" located in the highest offices of government and acting for their own self-interests.

In connection with the federal lawsuit now impending in the United States District Court in Brooklyn, New York (Case No. 12-cv-04269-JBW-RML) – involving, among other things, a request that the District Court enjoin all mortgage foreclosures by the Banksters nationwide, unless and until the entire $43 trillion is repaid to a court-appointed receiver – Plaintiffs  now establish the location of the $43 trillion ($43,000,000,000,000.00) of laundered money in a racketeering enterprise participated in by the following individuals (without limitation):  Attorney General Holder acting in his individual capacity, Assistant Attorney General Tony West, the brother in law of Defendant California Attorney General Kamala Harris (both acting in their individual capacities), Jon Corzine (former New Jersey Governor), Robert Rubin (former Treasury Secretary and Bankster), Timothy Geitner, Treasury Secretary (acting in his individual capacity), Vikram Pandit (recently resigned and disgraced Chairman of the Board of Citigroup), Valerie Jarrett (a Senior White House Advisor), Anita Dunn (a former "communications director" for the Obama Administration), Robert Bauer (husband of Anita Dunn and Chief Legal Counsel for the Obama Re-election Campaign), as well as the "Banksters" themselves, and their affiliates and conduits.  The lawsuit alleges serial violations of the United States Patriot Act, the Policy of Embargo Against Iran and Countries Hostile to the Foreign Policy of the United States, and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (commonly known as the RICO statute) and other State and Federal laws.

In the District Court lawsuit, Spire Law Group, LLP — on behalf of home owner across the Country and New York taxpayers, as well as under other taxpayer recompense laws — has expanded its mass tort action into federal court in Brooklyn, New York, seeking to halt all foreclosures nationwide pending the return of the$43 trillion ($43,000,000,000.00) by the "Banksters" and their co-conspirators, seeking an audit of the Fed and audits of all the "bailout programs" by an independent receiver such as Neil Barofsky, former Inspector General of the TARP program who has stated that none of the TARP money and other "bailout money" advanced from the Treasury has ever been repaid despite protestations to the contrary by the Defendants as well as similar protestations by President Obama and the Obama Administration both publicly on national television and more privately to the United States Congress.   Because the Obama Administration has failed to pursue any of the "Banksters" criminally, and indeed is actively borrowing monies for Mr. Obama's campaign from these same "Banksters" to finance its political aspirations, the national group of plaintiff home owners has been forced to now expand its lawsuit to include racketeering, money laundering and intentional violations of the Iranian Nations Sanctions and Embargo Act by the national banks included among the "Bankster" Defendants.

The complaint – which has now been fully served on thousands of the "Banksters and their Co-Conspirators" – makes it irrefutable that the epicenter of this laundering and racketeering enterprise has been and continues to be Wall Street and continues to involve the very "Banksters" located there who have repeatedly asked in the past to be "bailed out" and to be "bailed out" in the future. 

The Havens for the money laundering schemes – and certain of the names and places of these entities – are located in such venues as Switzerland, the Isle of Man,Luxembourg, Malaysia, Cypress and entities controlled by governments adverse to the interests of the United States Sanctions and Embargo Act against Iran, and are also identified in both the United Nations and the U.S. Senate's recent reports on international money laundering.  Many of these entities have already been personally served with summons and process of the complaint during the last six months.   It is now beyond dispute that, while the Obama Administration was publicly encouraging loan modifications for home owners by "Banksters", it was privately ratifying the formation of these shell companies in violation of the United States Patriot Act, and State and Federal law. The case further alleges that through these obscure foreign companies, Bank of America, J.P. Morgan, Wells Fargo Bank, Citibank, Citigroup, One West Bank, and numerous other federally chartered banks stole trillions of dollars of home owners' and taxpayers' money during the last decade and then laundered it through offshore companies.

This District Court Complaint – maintained by Spire Law Group, LLP — is the only lawsuit in the world listing as Defendants the Banksters, let alone serving all of such Banksters with legal process and therefore forcing them to finally answer the charges in court.  Neither the Securities and Exchange Commission, nor the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, nor the Office of the Attorney General, nor any State Attorney General has sued the Banksters and thereby legally chased them worldwide to recover-back the $43 trillion ($43,000,000,000,000.00) and other lawful damages, injunctive relief and other legal remedies.

James N. Fiedler, Managing Partner of Spire Law Group, LLP, stated:  "It is hard for me to believe as a 47-year lawyer that our nation's guardians have been unwilling to stop this theft.  Spire Law Group, LLP stands for the elimination of corruption and implementation of lawful strategies, and that is what we're doing here.  Spire Law Group, LLP's charter is to not allow such corruption to go unanswered."

Comments were requested from the Attorney Generals' offices in NY, CA, NV, NH , OH, MA and the White House, but no comment was provided.

The Relentless Evil of Goldman Sachs

October 29th, 2012 by

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2012/10/27/the-relentless-evil-of-goldman-sachs/

The Common Sense Show

By Dave Hodges

In the WW II Japanese invasion of Nanking, China, General Yanagawa Heisuke, and Lieut. General Nakajima Kesago, commander of the 16th division, engaged in a beheading contest to see who could be the first to behead 100 Chinese civilian prisoners in what became the known as the Rape of Nanking. Heisuke ultimately won the beheading contest. Both men were subsequently executed by the Allies after the conclusion of the war for “crimes against humanity.”

Today, the GMO poison food producer, Monsanto, and the great profiteer from all tragedies, Goldman Sachs, are engaged in their own special version of who is the most evil corporation on the face of the earth. Who among them, have committed the most atrocious crimes against humanity? In a close contest, Goldman Sachs is the Japanese war criminal version of General Heisuke and this criminal enterprise corporation has earned the title as the most evil corporation on the planet.

It is no secret that Goldman Sachs runs Wall Street. After the first bail out, Goldman Sachs cut the head off of Shearson Lehman and several other Wall Street competitors when they used their undue influence to determine winners and losers after the first round of TARP. Even Ray Charles could see that that Goldman Sachs are in near complete control of our government as evidenced by the former Goldman Sachs gangsters who have run our economy into the ground (e.g., Clinton’s Secretary of Treasury Goldman Sachs’ Rubin, Bush’s Secretary of Treasury Goldman Sachs’ “too big to fail” Paulson, etc.).

Goldman Sachs dominates the Federal Reserve. Goldman Sachs dominates the World Bank. Goldman Sachs also dominates the IMF. And now Goldman Sachs is running the European financial system into the ground as another Goldman Sachs boy, “Super” Mario Monti, has taken over Italy to finish off what is left of the Italian financial system. Monti is also the head of the European Trilateral Commission as well as a Bilderberger. And yet another Goldman Sachs boy is finishing off the job in Greece.

Today’s events parallel the imperialists of the early 20thcentury which resulted in World War I. The Wall Street led depression of the 1930’s led to the rise of political extremism and ultimately to World War II. Today, Goldman Sachs and their fellow Wall Street cronies are currently running, or dare I say ruining the global economy and the consequences are going to result in the culmination of World War III from which these same gangster bankster’s will profit from the buildup, the death and destruction of hundreds of millions, if not billions, of innocent people as well as profiting from the lucrative clean up which follows every war. However, the ultimate prize for the coming war will be the ruination of the planet in order that it can reconstructed in a true fascist model that Hitler and Mussolini could only dream about. Remember, as the globalists like to say in reference to their favorite Hegelian Dialectic quote, “Out of chaos comes order.” Mind you, it won’t be Goldman Sachs money that pays for the destruction of humanity in the coming  world war. This war’s blood money will be your money and my money. Mind you, it won’t be Goldman Sachs children who are pressed into military service and will be sacrificed in the coming conflict. It will be your children and my children who will be sacrificed in the name of furthering the bottom line of the Goldman Sachs Mafia and the rest of the Wall Street gangsters. Meanwhile, the Goldman Sachs children will be safely tucked away attending private schools on your nickel and on the blood of your children as the devastation begins to unfold.

When that Wall Street sock puppet, Barack Hussein Obama, finally gives Israel the green light to attack Iran, the dominoes leading to the next world war have begun to topple as Russia will surely come to the aid of its trading partner, Iran. Germany, except for Merkel, is taking a stand against this international banking cartel’s planned economic destruction of Europe, courtesy of Wall Street’s derivative debt. A growing number of experts feel that Germany may leave the EU and will join forces with Russia as evidenced by the recent series of trade and manufacturing agreements between the two countries. This could mark the breakup of NATO and leave American and British forces on their own to fight the coming war. This is exactly what these banksters desire, which is the total destruction of America and her military might. America will prove to be the last man standing on this corrupt march toward a bankster dominated New World Order and we Americans must be taken down, and taken down with a vengeance, in order to achieve this end.

This swath of international destruction being promulgated by Goldman Sachs is also being visited upon the daily lives of the American public here at home. Courtesy of the Goldman Sachs gangsters, there are no more safe financial havens for American citizens. Your bank account, your pension fund, your investment accounts and your home mortgages are no longer safe. These collective funds are not at risk because of the risk of falling victim to the failing economy as much as these funds are subject to confiscation by Goldman Sachs and its shell corporations along with the complicit support of the federal government. A clear case in point lies in the recent happenings in MF Global.

MF Global, a shell corporation beholding to Goldman Sachs, was led to the slaughter by the former Goldman Sachs executive and former New Jersey Governor and senator, John Corzine. Corzine’s criminal actions have directly victimized 150,000 Americans by stealing an estimated $900 million dollars of his clients’ money from their supposedly secure private account. There is also another $600 million missing dollars from MF Global.  Meanwhile, Corzine avoids sharing a prison cell with Bernie Madoff by purchasing a “get-out-of-jail card” through the sponsorship of a $35,000 per plate fundraiser for that great Wall Street puppet, Barack Hussein Obama. And what are the government watch dogs doing to protect our money from this new generation of robber barons? The short answer is that the feds are partners with Goldman Sachs in this monumental violation of the public trust. Take Gary Gensler, a former Goldman Sachs executive partner, who like so many other Goldman Sachs gangsters, have been placed into key governmental oversight positions in order to protect the Goldman Sachs co-conspirators, from prosecution, as they continue their reign of terror upon the global economy. Gary “the gangster” Gensler is the former Undersecretary of the Treasury (1999-2001) and Assistant Secretary of the Treasury (1997-1999) and the current director of theCommodity Futures Trading Commission. In his present position, Gensler had the authority to go after Corzine for his role in the MF Global debacle and order restitution. However, Gensler has decided to protect a fellow member of the Goldman Sachs Mafia by not looking into the massive fraud and theft by Corzine and his cronies. Your tax dollars, paying the salary of federal officials who are overseeing the most massive illegal private transfer of wealth, in the history of the planet, payable to Goldman Sachs and their criminal enterprise partners on Wall Street.

You may not be one of the current 150,000 Goldman Sachs/MF Global victims. However, this Robin Hood-in-reverse-scenario, in which the rich are plundering what’s left of the middle class, will soon be visited upon your bank account , your home mortgages and your pensions. These criminal banksters are in the process of stealing it all and what are you going to do about it? Our nation of entrenched sheeple will do nothing, that’s what they are going to do about the largest unfolding criminal syndicate in human history.

While you and the rest of America are trying to collectively remove your deer in the headlight glaze while considering your next financial move, please consider that the greed and avarice of the Wall Street boys are increasingly in evidence as they are making people work on this coming Thanksgiving in their corporate stores. You would think that there would be two days, Thanksgiving and Christmas, in which the Wall Street gangsters would leave us alone. But no, the Wall Street addiction to greed and human exploitation, is a 24/7/365 affliction. To all employees in the chain stores: Call in sick on these two holidays and go be with your families as you pay homage to your Savior.

If you are still trying to figure out your next move in an effort to take some measure of power back from these gangsters, please allow me to jump start your decision making by encouraging you to not buy anything on the upcoming super shopping day known as “Black Friday.” You say you will miss out on all the deals? Well, if you must shop on that day, don’t buy anything from the chain stores. Americans need to financially break the back of the Wall Street owned chain stores because as long as we support the corporate chain stores, like the Chinese slave labor supported Walmart chain, we are going to be the ones who end up in chains! How about celebrating this Christmas in the spirit of honoring Jesus Christ? How about giving gifts from the heart? How about donating a portion of your Christmas money to the homeless and the hungry who have already been victims of these criminal activities?

Before the corporate whores on Wall Street commercialized and stole the spirit of Christmas, the upcoming holidays used to be about helping the poor, going to church and spending time with loved ones. How about taking back Christmas and not buying one corporate made gift? After all, through the bailouts, the Wall Street boys are already stealing our tax money which is supposed to be going for things like roads, defense and education. As if Goldman Sachs hasn’t stolen enough, they are showing you and me that even our investment accounts are not beyond the reach of their thieving hands. How about this upcoming holiday season you keep what little money the corporate bought and paid for self-admitted insider trader political prostitutes (e.g., Nancy Pelosi) in Washington’s District of Criminals) haven’t stolen from you and stay out of the corporate stores? How about letting this holiday season be the one in which you teach your children the value of being of service to humanity as opposed to helping to further the coffers of those who are plundering the spirit of humanity?  And while you are it, take your money out of JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, etc. Buy gold, real gold coins. This Christmas, buy things of value that you will need and then begin to trade and barter for goods and services with other members of your community outside the reach of Wall Street, the Federal Reserve and the IRS. In this manner, you keep your money out of the clutches of these gangsters.

Some, who have heard my expressed sense of outrage, have asked me if I favor a violent overthrow the United States Government. To that question, I answer in the negative. However, show me a way to be involved in the overthrow of the gangsters who have hijacked my country’s government, I will be the first in line.

I want to announce that I have an early holiday season present for the Zionist boys at Goldman Sachs during the soon-to-be upcoming holiday season. Long before the Christmas shopping season kicks off, I will reveal how the Goldman Sachs’ boys consisting of Peter D. Sutherland and Lord “Subprime” Blankenfein, orchestrated and profited from Gulf oil spill while spreading financial devastation, ecological destruction as well as a soft kill genocide to the 40 million people residing in the Gulf. I will also be revealing how Sutherland and Blankenfein took a page from the Corzine $35,000 “get-out-of-jail card” per plate presidential fundraiser when they made it possible for Obama’s Vanguard investment fund to net President Obama $85 million dollars in order to look the other way with regard to their criminal actions involving the BP, Goldman Sachs, Halliburton and Transocean’s complicity in the Gulf oil spill in a clear case of insider trading in order to cover this criminal conspiracy which resulted in the deaths of 11 oil rig workers who will still be missed this holiday season by their friends and loved ones.

Indeed, Goldman Sachs wins this modern day beheading contest of humanity as this current version of the money changers represents the worst that our species has to offer. We desperately need to starve this monster to death at is root, namely, the corporate owned stores and banks. I sincerely hope to see you this holiday season in church and not in the malls where the presumably condemned spirit of General Heisuke resides. We can take comfort in the fact that as Japanese generals, Kesago and Heisuke, were judged and condemned by the Allies following WW II, Goldman Sachs, and all who serve this blight upon humanity, will someday stand before their maker and receive a similar judgment and condemnation.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

I remain amazed at America’s apathy over their future, and their willingness to participate in the controlled elections. How intelligent does one have to be in order to see clearly, we are being manipulated into letting them kill us without a fight? We are too afraid of them to defend ourselves. We accept their unlimited rule over us because we have no courage to fight back. We have no idea of how to fight back, even as we know that all it would take to change things is if some courageous men made it impossible for these people to come and go anywhere in public, without acquiring a new hole in their head.

It takes intelligent, and courageous people, who are willing to die for their freedom, and it seems evident that America is more interested in protecting fags and illegal aliens’ from having their feelings hurt, than the future of their own families, and the few who are aware of what’s coming are making preparations to hide from their tyrannical government. What a disgrace!

LAND OF THE FREE AND THE HOME OF THE BRAVE, MY ASS!

Before any one reading this responds with vengeance, consider reading the following documents so as to justify yourself with those better men and women who have died in battle for your worthless backside.

The Americans Creed

by William Tyler Page

I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed, a democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign States; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes.

I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its Constitution, to obey its laws, to respect its flag, and to defend it against all enemies.

OBAMA (2012 – 2016) The Death of America

October 27th, 2012 by

http://www.thecommonsenseshow.com/2012/10/25/obama-2012-2016-the-death-of-america/

Totalitarianism

“If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face-forever.” George Orwell

Dave Hodges

The Common Sense Show

As November 6th fast approaches and America is again provided with the globalist menu for President candidates which repeats the same old worn out theme of choosing between the lesser of two evils; With regard to Romney and Obama, one choice is decidedly more evil than the other.

Barack Obama is an undeniable communist and this fact has been well documented as this one man has dismantled more of the Constitution than any combination of Presidents in all of American history. As evidenced by the death panel legislation in Obamacare, he is an absolute eugenicist. Obama is a ruthless dictator hiding behind the cloak of being an elected leader within a pretend Constitutional Republic. Obama has issued ten times, more executive orders (EO) than all of the Presidents in our 237 year history. These facts are enough to frighten any freedom loving American and make all us wonder that if this despot is forced upon the American people, mostly by George Soros voting machines and the from the votes of the 47% of this country that are too lazy to stop taking Obama’s welfare handouts derived from fiat money, what this country will look like at the end of another four years of descent into tyranny.

Obama has provided a strong set of clues as to what his administration will do with his installation, several months ago of the executive order, THE NATIONAL DEFENSE RESOURCE PREPAREDNESS ACT.  If Americans wonder how far this lunatic President will go towards fulfilling the dreams of his real father, and his original political handlers, Weathermen Underground and communist agitators, Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dorne, one should read this E.O. and thoughtfully consider the ramifications.  This Obamnistic portend of the future is summarized in the following paragraphs.

The Legalization of Peacetime Martial Law

The descent into total and abject tyranny is almost complete. With President Obama’s latest executive order, THE NATIONAL DEFENSE RESOURCES PREPAREDNESS ACT, he has granted himself the authority to declare peacetime martial law. This Executive Order was posted on the WhiteHouse.gov web site.

The Elimination of Private Property

This executive order is particularly draconian in that it eliminates the private ownership of everything and Obama has delegated the complete control of the nation’s resources to his cabinet level department heads (i.e. Czars). The delegation of control of the nation’s resources and people is particularly troubling because the heads of America’s resources shall have this power “under both emergency and non-emergency conditions” to control every aspect of our lives. And under this executive order, the President is to the sole decider of what constitutes an emergency (Section 201, paragraph b).”

The Legalization of Government Sponsored Cronyism and Protection Rackets

Through Sections 301b and 302, Obama’s executive order legalizes governmental cronyism in which loans/grants are guaranteed by the Federal Reserve and the related actions are not subject to any kind of review or accountability process. Further, the development and implementation of a type of economic worthiness score, related to the relative importance of companies for “national defense,” will permit the government to decide what companies prosper and will receive stimulus money and which companies will fail in a strange version of “Fabian Socialism for corporations”. This is absolute fascism in which the government will ultimately control all business activity (see Sections 302, 303, 304, 305).

Due to the outcry of massively wasteful taxpayer giveaways to the solar industry which were dispensed to companies such as Solyndra and Pat Stryker’s Abound Solar, the American people have demanded accountability for this thinly veiled misuse of the public’s money. It should be noted that both solar companies heavily donated to the Obama 2008 campaign. Pat Stryker also contributed $50,000 to Obama’s inauguration ball. Now, both companies are near bankruptcy despite the government giveaway of billions of dollars to both of these Obama donating corporations. Boss Tweed would marvel at the firmly entrenched criminal enterprise system sponsored by the Obama Administration.

Section 303 provides a nonspecific delegated power which will presumably be delegated to the President, “to enable rapid transition of emerging technologies.” This precisely ties in with what I have publicly maintained for months: One of the goals of the globalists, in their engineering of “The Great Gulf Coast Holocaust,” was to destroy the Gulf’s shrimp and oyster industries in order to pave the way for the massive development of algae farms in support of the nation’s new biofuel craze. along the Gulf Coast To this day, the Gulf of Mexico is still being carpet bombed with Corexit and this toxic substance takes the CO2 out of the water and the only substance that can proliferate in this new environment is algae. Never mind that massive sinkholes complete with explosive methane have been produced by this process which gravely threatens the welfare of Louisiana residents.

Subsequently, globalist controlled algae farms are growing exponentially in the Gulf and is beginning to spread across our country. Buffet, Gore, Stryker and Soros are only a few of the billionaire globalists to invest heavily in the biofuel algae industry.

The Literal Legalization of Slavery

As if the previous sections of the already mentioned executive order are not enough to inflame already aware Americans, Section 601 signals the most Orwellian aspect of this executive order in which “upon request by the Director of Selective Service, and in coordination with the Secretary of Defense, assist the Director of Selective Service in development of policies regulating the induction and deferment of persons for duty in the armed services” (paragraph 2). What is particularly troubling is that the Secretary of Labor will possess oversight over the Selective Service process, instead of the Secretary of Defense. This revelation left me scratching my head as I wondered why would the Department of Labor be in charge of the coming military draft?

Then it dawned upon me that we were not just talking about military conscription. I refer to the 2008 Presidential campaign in which Obama stated that “we need to construct a national civilian security force that is just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded” (as the military). Obama is clearly planning to conscript civilians, train them and send them where they are needed and will pay them whatever wage the Secretary of Commerce determines (Section 601; paragraphs 3, 4-Section 801; paragraph C). In one fell swoop, Obama has sidestepped the 13th Amendment as we are talking about the introduction of forced labor (i.e. slavery). Does anyone else find it ironic and tragic that our first black president has declared his intention to impose government sanctioned slavery upon the American people? For those that know their history, it should also remind everyone of the forced labor camps run by the Nazi’s in which Jews and other political prisoners were forced into slave labor in support of the German war effort while they were being systematically starved to death. Is this why Jesse Ventura’s FEMA camp episode was scrubbed from Television and why TruTV ‘s archives are missing the FEMA camp episode? Perhaps, America would be well advised to pay attention to the good work being done by Gary Franchi on the topic of FEMA camps. Bill Ayers, the benefactor of Obama’s Harvard education and his original political sponsor is on the record of having stated one day, in America, “we will have to send 50 million Americans to re-education camps and murder 25 million of them.

The Legalization of Sexual Assault and Illegal Searches Upon American Citizens.

The Secretary of Transportation has been authorized control over civil transportation which “includes movement of persons and property by all modes of transportation in interstate, intrastate, or foreign commerce within the United States, its territories and possessions, and the District of Columbia, and related public storage and warehousing, ports, services, equipment and facilities, such as transportation carrier shop and repair facilities.” “Civil transportation” also shall include direction, control, and coordination of civil transportation capacity regardless of ownership” (Section 801 part A). Can there be any doubt that the expanded surveillance program by of the TSA, in their unconstitutional, hands down our pants VIPER program, is designed to control all travel in the United States? The former Soviet Union used to have checkpoints every 20 miles in order to restrict travel and to prevent the congregation of “revolutionary forces” for purposes of opposing government control as well as to limit the ability of political dissidents to flee from their governmental pursuers. I feel compelled to ask, what is the government going to do that is so nefarious and so intrusive that they are seeking to set up a control grid which will accomplish these same goals?

The Legalization of Eco-Terrorism and the Deindustrialization of America.

The Secretary of Energy will have control over all “Energy” (which) means all forms of energy including petroleum, gas (both natural and manufactured), electricity, solid fuels (including all forms of coal, coke, coal chemicals, coal liquification, and coal gasification), solar, wind, other types of renewable energy, atomic energy, and the production, conservation, use, control, and distribution (including pipelines) of all of these forms of energy…” This means the government will have total control over all utility prices, the installation of smart meters along with the implementation of the smart grid and the amount of energy which can be consumed by average Americans will be severely curtailed under this new system of energy feudalism which will be imposed on the new American serfs. Obama, in the 2008 Presidential Campaign, stated that “under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.” Previously ignorant Americans will soon come to know the true meaning and the accurately prophetic meaning of these words (Section 801, part b).

The Legalization of Starving Americans Into Submission.

The Secretary of Agriculture will posses control over “fertilizer” (which) means any product or combination of products that contain one or more of the elements nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium for use as a plant nutrient.” The Secretary of Agriculture will also control “food resource facilities “(which) means plants, machinery, vehicles (including on farm), and other facilities required for the production, processing, distribution, and storage (including cold storage) of food resources, and for the domestic distribution of farm equipment and fertilizer.” This is the total control of all food. This will allow Monsanto which demonstrably controls the Department of Agriculture, the FDA and EPA to move forward, unabated, for the total GMO takeover of our food supply. Even more disturbing is that a few men will have total control over all food production and the dissenting masses who oppose this fascist takeover can be effectively starved into submission or starved to death (Section 801, parts c-f).

The Legalization and Installation of Eugenics as National Policy

Under this E.O., the Secretary of Health and Human Services shall maintain control over all “Health resources” meaning drugs, biological products, medical devices, materials, facilities, health supplies, services and equipment required to diagnose, mitigate or prevent the impairment of, improve, treat, cure, or restore the physical or mental health conditions of the population.” This is a declaration of a forced form of Codex Alimentarius. Under this provision, it will not matter if Obama Care is repealed, his cabinet appointee will maintain control over all health care, both pharmacological and alternative/natural (Section 801, part i). Can there be any doubt that the death panel provisions of Obama Care will be implemented and carried out with no oversight or regulation in an manner reminiscent of Logan’s Run nightmarish scenario?

I have long maintained on my talk show that there is a decided effort by a relatively few elite to control the nation’s water and this provision will be utilized as a form of both political and population control. Of this, there can be no doubt as the Secretary of Defense will be placed in charge of all water resources Section 801, part n). I can draw no other conclusion that placing the control of water under the DOD represents the weaponizing of water and the intended target of this full frontal assault are the American people for the purpose of imposing population control and complete compliance.

This is only a partial view of what a second term will like under the despot, Barack Obama. If America permits this lunatic to serve a second term, many of us will not be around to vote for his replacement in 2016, provided there are still elections to vote in.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

America, how could anyone be stupid enough to vote for this scumbag, when all you have to do is abandon your TV a few hours a week and get a real education? And to make matters even worse, Romney will continue with the SAME PROGRAM! Where the hell is your RAGE? Why do you continue participating in their obvious intent of your destruction?

Has The Perfect Moment To Kill The Dollar Arrived?

October 26th, 2012 by

 

http://www.activistpost.com/2012/08/has-perfect-moment-to-kill-dollar.html

 

Brandon Smith, Contributor

The idea of “collapse”, social and financial, comes with an incredible array of hypothetical consequences ranging from public dissent and martial law, to the complete disintegration of infrastructure and the devolution of mankind into a swarm of mindless arm chewing cannibals. In an age of television nirvana and cinema overload, I have found that the collective unconscious of our culture has now defined what collapse is based only on the most narrow of extremes. If they aren’t being hunted down by machete wielding looters or swastika wearing jackboots, then the average American dupe figures that the country is not in much danger. Hollywood fantasy has blinded us to the tangible crises at our doorstep.

The reality is that collapse is not a singular event, but a process. It is a symphony of doom, composed of a series of exponentially more powerful crescendos. If the past four years since the implosion of the derivatives bubble have proven anything, it is that catastrophe has the ability to drown a nation slowly like a river of molasses, rather than sweep it away like a flash flood. That said, almost every recorded collapse of modern societies in the past century has been preceded by a primary trigger event; a moment in which the mathematical certainty of failure becomes clear, even if the psychological certainty is muddled.

In 2012, we still await that trigger event, which I believe will be the announcement of QE3 (or any unlimited stimulus program regardless of title), and the final debasement of the dollar. At the beginning of this year, I pointed out that we were likely to see such an announcement before 2012 was out, and it would seem that the private Federal Reserve is right on track.

Last month, the Fed announced that it was formulating a plan to “expand its tool kit”. This includes an openly admitted possibility of a third round of quantitative easing starting as early as September:

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/07/24/us-usa-fed-tools-idUSBRE86N1G120120724

This timeline appears to coincide perfectly with the breakdown of the EU, which may also see a climax event in September. In that month, EU policymakers will return from summer holiday. German courts will make a ruling which could put an end to any chance that the country will support a eurozone rescue fund. The Dutch, which are anti-bailout, will vote in elections. Greece will be attempting to renegotiate its financial lifeline. And, the ECB will have to assess the impending chaos in Spain and Italy:

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/07/29/us-eurozone-crisis-idUSBRE86S05J20120729

As far as the Fed’s ability to remedy the fiscal situation goes, let’s clear something up right here; the Fed has NO TOOLKIT. Sorry, but central banks have only two options when attempting to shift the tide of the economy: They can lower interest rates to zero, and, they can print-print-print. That is it. We’ve had TARP, numerous bailouts, QE1 and QE2, Operation Twist, and interests rates have been kept near zero for years! These so called solutions have been strapped like millstones around our necks and absolutely nothing has been accomplished since 2008. 

Real unemployment still stands at over 20%. The housing crisis remains an unstoppable juggernaut. Europe is on the verge of meltdown (despite the trillions in American taxpayer dollars handed to EU banks). The national debt continues to grow at a pace far beyond what the Obama Administration and mainstream economists (who should have been fired long ago) predicted in 2010. There are no secret magic tricks up the sleeve of Ben Bernanke. Even if the Fed actually wanted to save our financial system, and our currency (which they don’t), there is nothing they can do except make the situation worse. Central banks are perhaps the most useless institutions ever devised, unless, of course, their true purpose is to diminish the financial health of a country and siphon away its economic sovereignty…

Enter the death of the dollar.

The IMF has been consistently calling for the end of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency, and for its replacement by the SDR (Special Drawing Rights):

http://money.cnn.com/2011/02/10/markets/dollar/index.htm

http://www.imf.org/external/np/pp/eng/2011/010711.pdf 

The new president of France, Francois Hollande, has recommended the expulsion of the dollar as the go-to reserve, a deeper relationship between France and the BRIC nations:

http://www.atimes.com/atimes/Global_Economy/NE08Dj06.html

China has been demanding an end to dollar primacy for years:

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB123780272456212885.html

And so has Russia…

http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2009-04/01/content_11109506.htm

And so has the UN…

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/currency/6152204/UN-wants-new-global-currency-to-replace-dollar.html

It’s not as if it’s a big secret that the dollar is on everyone’s hit list. Until recently, alternative economists could only point out circumstantial evidence that this sentiment was a product of collusion between the world’s central banks and elements of various governments. Suggesting that China, Russia, the UN, the IMF, and the Federal Reserve were working in tandem to devalue the dollar and replace it with a global currency has always elicited at least a few jeers and the ever present standby catch-all accusation of “conspiracy theory”. However, the times they are a’ changen’…

With the exposure of the Libor Scandal, we now have definitive proof and even open confessions from international banks, the Federal Reserve, and the Treasury, admitting that the true debt problems of major institutions have been hidden, deliberately, in tandem with multiple agencies in multiple countries, from the general public, with the full knowledge of numerous governments. The most vital and shocking element of the Libor Scandal is that it shows, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that there is indeed a conspiracy which has melded the corporate world and the political world into a single ominous creature.

The collusion has become so brazen, central banks around the globe now institute policy initiatives within the same hour of each other:

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/07/05/us-centralbanks-action-idUSBRE8640RN20120705

Years back, I wrote an article about the most important signs to watch for when facing a heightened state of collapse. One of those signs was the advent of openly admitted corruption on the part of the banks. When criminals become absolutely transparent and nonchalant about their criminality, it is usually because they no longer fear the threat of justice or reprisal. This is exactly the atmosphere we have in 2012. But, what could possibly have made the banksters so confident that they are willing to flaunt their racket to the world? I can only surmise that an event is on the horizon. One so distracting that the hucksters believe we will forget all about them. 

Looking at it from another perspective; if I was a globalist hell bent on undercutting the dollar as the world reserve and replacing it with a centralized standard while turning the U.S. into a third world pit in the process, I would probably pull the plug soon. Here are some reasons why:

Drought Crisis Provides Inflationary Cover

The drought which has struck half of the U.S. agricultural centers and which has also hit Russian production is the perfect cover event for dollar devaluation. The full view of crop production and yields will be revealed this autumn, and according to the mainstream, the numbers will be dismal. Maybe they will be, maybe they won’t, but the likelihood of inflation in food prices all over the planet is high. If the Fed announces QE3 and sets an implosion of the dollar in motion, the price spikes this will cause in commodities, especially grains and other foodstuffs, can be easily blamed on drought, rather than the destruction of the greenback. At least for a time.

Syria And Iran Theater

If the UN pulls observers from Syria, expect an attack by either the U.S., Israel, or both is on the way. Expect Russia to be quite unhappy. Expect China to respond with financial warfare. Expect Iran to fulfill its mutual defense pact with Syria and come to their aid. Expect hard core catastrophe. I have been warning about Syria as a catalyst for global crisis for quite some time. Long before anyone ever heard the name “Assad”:

http://www.alt-market.com/neithercorp/press/2010/01/will-globalists-trigger-yet-another-world-war/

Every time I catch a glimpse of the MSM, whether it be MSNBC, CNN, or FOX, they are all spewing the same rhetoric: The U.S. should have invaded Syria months ago. It would seem that the American people are being psychologically prepped for a new war, but in reality, they are being prepped to be distracted from the banking sector’s primacy in the economic calamity that is about to unfold. 

European Seesaw Of Destruction

With the EU in shambles, and only getting worse, the ECB has been attempting to work around the rules of its own charter which forbid the infusion of capital directly into governments. The latest weapon in the fight against the financial stupidity of EU member countries? European stimulus! That’s right folks, the U.S. is not the only country that will be raping its own currency this year! Be sure to catch the euro-sized version of QE:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/ezra-klein/wp/2012/08/03/maybe-draghis-speech-wasnt-a-disaster-after-all/

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-06-01/berlusconi-says-ecb-must-print-euros-or-italy-may-say-ciao-1-.html

I believe, in keeping with the collusion central banks have already shown, that the Federal Reserve and the ECB will announce new stimulus measures very close to each other, if not in tandem. The continued devaluation of the Euro will help to hide the effect of the falling dollar as the two currencies seesaw back and forth, allowing for a delayed reaction from the public as well as investment markets. Investors looking for a safe haven currency will be scrambling in confusion.

Stocks Ready To Bust

Finally, it is very likely that the Fed will wait for markets to dive in the wake of faltering demand for goods and raw materials in all major economies, as well as declines in manufacturing. As I have said in the past, the Fed wants us to beg for QE3. The only reason this decline has not occurred yet is because investors that are still participating are salivating for new stimulus and expect it shower them with riches soon. So, to put this in perspective, the Dow is above 13,000 right now because investors have already priced in a QE package not just in the U.S., but in the EU as well. If they do not get it fast, they will pull out, and stocks will plummet. The market addiction to fiat injection is so pervasive now, I cannot imagine how they would react if the pipeline was cut off. It would probably induce a fiscal bloodbath.

What Will Collapse Really Be Like?

I expect the event will be spectacular in some ways, but subdued and subversive in many other ways. Triggers may be swift and startling, but the reactions of the populace slow, uncertain, and presumptive. There will be fissures in our foundation, but the complete extent of the danger may take a few more years to become evident. While the public continues to maintain its fixation on some Mad Max nightmare scenario, the real collapse will be taking place right under their noses in the form of 25%-50% increases in food and fuel, tightened job availability with pensions swallowed by austerity, food lines hidden by food stamps until the government finally defaults and pulls the rug out from under entitlement programs, etc. For a time, it will look and feel like a slightly darker version of today, and not the cinematic melodrama that we have come to envision. The worst of times that we often find extolled in the pages of history books come at the cost of years of almost equal disparity, and usually, the lead up is far more difficult to handle than the finale…

In Amerika there will never be a real debate

By Paul Craig Roberts

God help them if Obama and Romney ever had to participate in a real debate about a real issue at the Oxford Union. They would be massacred.

The “debates” revealed that not only the candidates but also the entire country is completely tuned out to every real problem and dangerous development. For example, you would never know that US citizens can now be imprisoned and executed without due process. All that is required to terminate the liberty and life of an American citizen by his own government is an unaccountable decision somewhere in the executive branch.

No doubt that Americans, if they think of this at all, believe that it will only happen to terrorists who deserve it. But as no evidence or due process is required, how would we know that it only happens to terrorists? Can we really trust a government that has started wars in 7 countries on the basis of falsehoods? If the US government will lie about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction in order to invade a country, why won’t it lie about who is a terrorist?

America needs a debate about how we can be made more safe by removing the Constitutional protection of due process. If the power of government is not limited by the Constitution, are we ruled by Caesar? The Founding Fathers did not think we could trust a Caesar with our safety. What has changed that we can now trust a Caesar?

If we are under such a terrorist threat that the Constitution has to be suspended or replaced by unaccountable executive action, how come all the alleged terrorist cases are sting operations organized by the FBI? In eleven years there has not been a single case in which the “terrorist” had the initiative!

In the eleven years since 9/11, acts of domestic terrorism have been miniscule if they even exist. What justifies the enormous and expensive Department of Homeland Security? Why does Homeland Security have military-equipped Special Response Teams with armored vehicles?http://www.dhs.gov/photo/hsi-using-armored-vehicles-training-ice Who are the targets of these militarized units? If eleven years of US government murder, maiming, and displacement of millions of Muslims hasn’t provoked massive acts of domestic terrorism, why is Homeland Security creating a domestic armed force of its own? Why are there no congressional hearings and no public discussion? How can a government whose budget is deep in the red afford a second military force with no defined and Constitutionally legal purpose?

What is Homeland Security’s motivation in creating a Homeland Youth? Is the new FEMA Corps a disguise for a more sinister purpose, a Hitler Youth as Internet sites suggest?https://www.dhs.gov/blog/2012/09/14/welcome-fema-corps-inaugural-class Are the massive ammunition purchases by Homeland Security related to the raising of a nationwide corps of 18- to 24-year-olds? How can so much be going on in front of our eyes with no questions asked?

Why did not Romney ask Obama why he is working to overturn the federal court’s ruling that US citizens cannot be subject to indefinite detention in violation of the US Constitution? Is it because Romney and his neoconservative advisers agree with Obama and his advisers? If so, then why is one tyrant better than another?

Why has the US constructed a network of detainment camps, for which it is hiring “internment specialists”? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0gvWkHNeQs&list=UUiqRq2mT_bBPMRhHap684Ig&index=10&feature=plcp

Why does the US Army now have a policy for “establishing civilian inmate labor programs and civilian prison camps on Army installations”? http://armypubs.army.mil/epubs/pdf/r210_35.pdf

Here is Rachel Maddow’s report on how Obama criticizes the neoconservative Bush/Cheney regime for violations of the US Constitution and US statutory law and then proposes the same thing himself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L8J_lcHwkvc

How did the presidential debates avoid the fact of Predator Drones flying over us here in the domestic United States of America? What is the purpose of this? Why are the smallest police forces in the most remote of locations being equipped with armored cars? I have seen them. In small lilly-white communities north of Atlanta, Georgia, communities of sub-million dollar MacMansions have militarized police with armored cars and automatic weapons. SWAT teams in full military gear are everywhere. What is it all about? These small semi-rural areas will never see a terrorist or experience a hostage situation. Yet, they are all armed to the teeth. They are so heavily armed that they could be sent into combat against the Third Reich or the Red Army.

Any such questions run afoul of the assumption of America’s moral perfection. No such debate will ever happen. But if “it is the economy, stupid,” why is there no economic debate?

Last month the Federal Reserve announced QE3. If QE1 and QE2 did not work, why does anyone, including the Federal Reserve Chairman, think that QE3 will work?

Yet, the utterly irrational financial markets, which haven’t a clue about anything, were overjoyed at QE3. This can only be because what rules the equity market is propaganda, spin, and disinformation, not facts. The vaunted stock market is incapable of making any correct decision. The decisions are made by the fools in the market operating on a short-run basis. The only safe path to take is to run with the lemmings. This strategy insures that a portfolio manager is always in the middle of his peers and, therefore, he doesn’t lose clients.

How wonderful it would have been for Obama and Romney to have confronted in a real debate how QE3, designed to help insolvent “banks too big to fail,” can help households operating, with two earners, on real incomes of 45 years ago, which is where the current real median household income stands.

How does saving a bank, designated as “too big to fail,” help the family whose jobs or main job has been exported to China or India in order to maximize corporate profits, executive performance bonuses and shareholders’ capital gains?

Obviously the working population of the US has been sacrificed to the profits of the mega-rich.

An appropriate debate question is: Why has the livelihood of working Americans been sacrificed to the profits of the mega-rich?

No such question will ever be asked in a “presidential debate.”

In the 21st century, US citizens became nonentities. They are brutalized by the police whose incomes their taxes pay. They, for protesting some injustice or for no cause at all, are beaten, arrested, tasered and even murdered. The police, paid by the public, beat up paralyzed people in wheel chairs, frame those who call them for help against criminals, taser grandmothers and small children, and shoot down in cold blood unarmed citizens who have done nothing except lose control of themselves, either through alcohol, drugs, or rage.

Brainwashed Americans pay large taxes at every level of government for protection against gratuitous violence, but what their taxes support is gratuitous violence against themselves. Every American, except for the small number of mega-rich who control Washington, can be arrested and dispossessed, both liberty and property, on the basis of nothing but an allegation of a member of the executive branch who might want the accused’s wife’s, girlfriend, property, or to settle a score, or to exterminate a rival, or to score against a high school, college, or business rival.

In America today, law serves the powerful, not justice. In effect, there is no law, and there is no justice. Only unaccountable power.

What is the point of a vote when the outcome is the same? Both candidates represent the interests of Israel, not the interests of the US. Both candidates represent the interests of the military/security complex, agribusiness, the off-shoring corporations, the suppression of unions and workers, the total demise of civil liberty and the US Constitution, which is in the way of unbridled executive power .

In the US today, the power of money rules. Nothing else is in the equation. Why vote to lend your support to the continuation of your own exploitation? Every time Americans vote it is a vote for their own obliteration.

True to my objective, I have posted more accomplished and intelligent authors on this subject of voting in political elections, but now I’m going to fess up with my own opinion.

VOTING IS AN ADMISSION OF YOUR IGNORANCE!

In an effort to bring you up to date on how the world works, the International Banking Cartel has acquired financial power over all governments. ( “Questioning central banks about gold has never been attempted by financial market academics, analysts, and newsletter writers, nor by mainstream financial journalists because they simply take for granted that central banks operate in secret. Central banks control the value of all capital, labor, goods, and services in the world — that is, central banks exercise nearly absolute power –– but financial market academics, analysts, and newsletter writers and mainstream financial journalists seem to believe that central banks are somehow exempt from the ancient principle that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” Chris Powell, Secretary

/Treasurer Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee Inc. New Orleans Investment Conference Wednesday, October 24, 2012)

So, my dear ignorant patriots, with a little searching for information not under the control of the Bankers Main Stream Media, you will learn that the Bankers leave NOTHING to chance, and anyone running for office has been comprised, and this has been going on for longer than this generation and our ancestors. If we really want a free world, we have to eliminate
Central Banking that is under the Cartels power, and that means eliminating them. TO KILL A SNAKE, CUT OFF IT’S DAMN HEAD!

Since most of you have accepted the killing of anyone the government wants’ dead, what is wrong with adding a few hundred Banksters to the list?

You Want Me To Vote For Romney?

October 23rd, 2012 by

 

 (Here s What I Ask In Return) |
        Neal's Soapbox
http://www.zombie-slayer.com/neal/?p=857

 

I keep hearing from friends and co?workers, that I HAVE to vote for Romney to stop Obama from getting elected again. They say I have to sacrifice my principles, be a realist, not an idealist, and vote for Romney to at least slow down, the damage being done to this country by Obama.

          Okay, here’s the deal. I will vote for Romney if two things occur. First, Romney reads, and swears to uphold a speech that I prepare for him, and secondly each and every Romney supporter who has nagged at me to vote for him signs a declaration, that I will also prepare for him or her.

          Here is the speech that I would ask Mr. Romney to read, and agree too:
 
          I, Willard, Mitt, and Romney do solemnly swear to uphold and defend the Constitution, against all enemies, foreign and domestic. I will not sign into law any legislation which does not have as its foundation any of the specifically enumerated powers found in Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution. I will not abide a loose interpretation of the General Welfare, the Commerce, and the Necessary and Proper Clauses of the Constitution as a basis for enacting law.

          As President, I will reduce our national deficit and begin paying off the national debt by $1 trillion per year. If I fail to reduce our national debt by $4 trillion by the end of my first term, I will not run for a second term. Along those lines I will work to get a flat tax, or a federal sales tax implemented, doing away with the graduated income tax, until the national debt is brought under control. Once that occurs I will no longer allow government to tax the earnings of the people to fund our operations. This nation got along fine enough for 124 years before the Constitution was amended to allow for an income tax. If government lives within its means, there is absolutely no reason to ask the people to fund it.

          As President, I will hold the Bill of Rights as sacred and ensure that the rights of every American are protected. I will begin by dismantling the Department of Homeland Security and revoking every piece of legislation passed to fight the war on terror which in some fashion infringes upon an unalienable right of the people. I will reign in the Transportation Security Administration, (TSA), and find other ways of ensuring the public’s safety than by infringing upon their 4th Amendment right to be secure in their persons and property.

          As President, I will begin dismantling this behemoth that is the federal government by abolishing the following Cabinet Posts and their associated agencies; the Secretary of Education, Department of Labor, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of Energy, and the Environmental Protection Agencies. These are all areas that are best managed by the individual states, and not the federal government.

          I will also recall our ambassador to the United Nations and give the member nations 30 days to recall their respective ambassadors before I schedule the UN building to be demolished.

          I will also drastically cut back our military presence overseas unless the nations where we have military installations formally request a U.S. military presence. If that were the case then that nation will be responsible for paying the entire cost to sustain that installation, including the pay and benefits of every U.S. serviceman assigned to that installation. If not, that nation can fend for itself. It is not our place to police and defend the world. With that being said, if a rogue nation decides to attack the U.S. we will retaliate with the full force of our might but we will not invade and occupy a sovereign nation so that military contractors such as Halliburton can make a fortune off the misfortune of war.

          I will revoke the charter of the Federal Reserve Bank and give the power to coin our nation’s currency back to Congress where it belongs. The treasury department is fully capable of printing all the money required to sustain our economy without America having to be enslaved to a cartel of globalist bankers who profit for our nation’s debt.

          And finally, I will enact strict trade laws which grant no benefits to any nation, or company, which produces goods outside the border of the United States. For every item we import to America, one item will be exported to that country which is manufactured in America, or all trade with that nation will grind to a halt. We will rebuild America as a manufacturing force to be reckoned with.

          These are my promises to you as president. If I fail to uphold even one of them, I will not seek re-election. I swear this under penalty of perjury, and may God and the American people hold me accountable.
 
          That is the speech that Mitt Romney MUST give before I will vote for him. Otherwise, he can take his chances without me. And for you, the faithful republicans who nagged at me to support him, your declaration is much simpler. I would ask you to read and sign the following:
 
          I _______________________, do hereby swear that I have investigated the candidate I support, to include their past voting record and stances on the issues. I have not based my decision strictly upon party loyalty, or that my candidate is the best chance to defeat the current incumbent.
          I have also read the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and understand that these documents are sacredly obligatory upon the government, limiting their authority and power. I have applied them as a litmus test to the candidate I support and believe that said candidate will best uphold the principles contained in those documents.
          If, it is proven later, that the candidate I vote for fails to uphold the Constitution, or fails to uphold any of his campaign promises I, __________________, will rip my heart out of my chest and eat it.
 
Signed:   ___________________________________________
 
          There, that’s all you have to do to get me to vote for Mitt Romney. That wasn’t that hard, was it?

The most important thing Neal forgot was to put a limit on executive orders.

NONE would be better, and much needs be said about our Comprehensive Annual Financial Report profits being used as a rebuilding base and corporate taxation reduction. See:  http://cafr1.com/

Mitt would also have to support a real Attorney General so the $23 trillion Leo E. Wanta funds are recovered. See:  http://lucas2012infos.wordpress.com/tag/leo-wanta-official-biography-american-wanta-be-free/

Go To The Polls and NOT VOTE!

Vote For “None Of The Above”!

www.OnlyWay.com

 

By David A. McElroy

Are you sick and tired of the false choices offered at the polls? Do you refuse to vote for the “lesser of two evils”? Do you feel your voice is not heard, your vote does not count in an election system rife with corruption, intimidation, and vote fraud? Do you really want to vote for “None of the above”?
 
I recommend we go to the polls and sign in at the registration table as a voter. But in doing so, add a little note stating you refuse to participate in a system you have no confidence in. Speak for yourself. Use ink and this vote of “no confidence” in the election system will be a part of the public record. They can’t dispose of the sheets of voters’ registered signatures. Then politely explain to the election workers that you do not intend to cast a vote in a system of false choices corrupt beyond redemption. You should speak openly within earshot of other voters, but not be loud or disruptive explaining your action. Then just leave, hoping you don’t get bodily thrown out the door.
 
Rev. DeForest Soaries resigned as Chairman of the US Elections Assistance Commission, as of April 30, 2005, after being appointed by President George W. Bush. Soaries held a press conference to announce that he could not be associated with an election system that was “ripe for stealing elections and for fraud.” He characterized the election system as being a “charade” and a “travesty”. Of course, mainstream media did not broadcast or publish the videotaped statements Soaries made in his indignant resignation. Read his story on the front page of the Oct. 2006 Brad Blog. Are things any better under Obama?
 
You should recall testimony by electronics engineers that the electronic voting machines are designed to facilitate remote-control vote rigging via a perpetrator’s cell phone. They even demonstrated how this was done. See www.TomFlocco.com for Flocco’s detailed Oct. 30, 2002 expose Hacking the Presidency. Read Beverly Harris’ Black Box Voting: Tampering in the 21st Century, if you need references documenting the election frauds.
 
If enough of us register our vote of “no confidence” at the polls, the message should get through loud and clear to the electioneers and politicians. Let’s deploy this means of showing them what happens when they throw an election and nobody chooses to vote! Let’s vote against the system and register the fact that we won’t participate in the fraud! Let’s make it clear that we do not consent to be governed by either wing of the big bird of prey feeding on we the people. Reject the false promises of Dempublicans and the Repocrats and throw a monkey wrench into the turnstile of tyranny posing as democracy. Vote “no confidence” and vote “none of the above” by registering but NOT VOTING!

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

I have had a similar on going discussion with a local political columnist who advocates voting every incumbent out of office, but I cannot convince him that it’s not just the politicians, but the people who control the outcome that is the real problem. After all is said and done, the people who count the votes are the only one’s that control who wins. That is the reason all democracies have failed. On the other hand, I detest any political system that gives the majority the power to tyrannize the minority. If we had honest elections, there would be no difference in our government, as those who cannot manage their lives will always be in the majority. Only the dull and ignorant need governments to run their lives and there has never been a shortage of them in every system of government the world has tried.

Take responsibility for what is yours, protect it, have compassion for the weak, worship the Lord God, and thank Him for your abilities and abundance.

His government has always worked, try it and see for yourself! Even the dull and ignorant can remember ten laws.

Multiculturalism: As A Tool To Divide And Conquer

October 18th, 2012 by

 

http://www.louisbeam.com/Multicul.htm

 

by Louis Beam

 

No nation is born multicultured. Multiculturalism is an unnatural as well as unhealthy condition that can only afflict states in national decline. A multicultural state carries in it's geneses the seeds of eventual national destruction. 

All multicultural nations will be found to be in a state of political, moral, economic and social decay. Greed and corruption will characterize the government coupled with oppressive measures directed against citizens. Lies and deceit will be stock and trade of media, politicians, and educational institutions. Such are the bellwethers of a multiculturalist advent. 

In modern times multiculturalism is instituted from the top down as an elitist ruling class tool used to play one or more racial or ethnic groups against another. The ensuing cultural melee serves the political designs, economic goals and power needs of elitist rulers and their sponsors. This technique was developed by Marxist ideologues who used multiculturalism in Russia to divide and conquer resistance to the institution of a communist state. The end result of their successful takeover was the murder of thirty million humans in the Soviet Union alone. Many more elsewhere. 

The same internationalist cabals who sponsored Lenin, Trotsky, and Stalin as the multicultural leaders of the Soviet state from their banking houses in New York, similarly sponsor the multicultural leaders of the United States, Canada, and Europe today. An interlocking network of foundations such as Ford and Carnegie, international banking empires such as Rockefeller and Rothschild, and government agencies firmly in their control work in tandem with controlled propaganda outlets such as the New York Times, CBS, and Hollywood, to promote, foster, and institute multiculturalism today. While the examples used in this essay deal primarily with the United States the same process with the same methods is being employed elsewhere. This of itself is prima facie evidence of a cabal which promotes multiculturalism as a tool to achieve its objectives. 

Multiculturalism is being used as a hammer to forge the compliant people who will compose the obedient states of the New World Order. As a weapon of post modern political warfare multiculturalism has few equals, which, thus explains its use currently against all of Western Europe, the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Deliberate fragmentation of these nations and the resultant loss of national identity and purpose into politically disharmonious units, serves as a stepping stone to world government. And who will compose that world government? A ruling class consisting of an "economic hierarchy" that replaces the philosophy of the nineteenth century "natural hierarchy." A force that views countries and the people that live in them first as economic targets to be exploited, and second as military targets to be defeated if they resist. 

One must not let himself be confused by the window dressing of willing dupes from the left who are most often, but not always, seen as the spokesmen for the glories of multiculturalism. Liberal supporters of multiculturalism amount to nothing more than opportunist parasites riding on the back of a social fungus attacking the body politic. While some incoherent liberals have been spokesmen for multiculturalism, they should not be viewed as representing other main stream liberals any more so than do so-called conservatives like Bob Dole and Newt Gingrich speak for constitutionalists and populists. The real stimulus, unseen elitist who promote multiculturalism as a tool of warfare, are themselves anything but liberal, progressive, or democratic. Rather they are global social tyrants who seek more power, more wealth, and more control over people–and they could care less what the politics are of those they seek to rule. 

Elitists schemers envision a dictatorial world government composed of forcibly federated states, which, properly speaking, are police states without borders. The United Nations will serve as the store house front and public face of those who from behind the scenes manipulate world events. Economically envisioned is a global workers plantation overseen by transnational corporations who have no more concern for the human rights of those who produce their products or services than Stalin did for his miserable workers. Vassal states are to produce goods and insure compliance of their subjects by defining all opposition to the borderless police state as terrorism. Thus will be the good times. In bad times, when elitist multinational corporations are unable to maintain control, the armed might of NATO will be used to enforce obedience by non-compliant states.(1)

METHODS USED AND THEIR EFFECT

Just as television commercials are run by those who will profit from their airing, multiculturalism is fostered upon a country by its sponsors who intend to benefit from its acceptance. 

Those who sponsor multiculturalism are properly called multiculturalists and generally will be found to be those people with the least amount of personal culture appertaining to them. As a dying tree drops its leaves and is attacked by fungus and worms of decay, so to is a nation set upon by multiculturalists. The dominate culture is attacked from all sides. This is not so much a product of maliciousness as necessity. By vilifying, leveling, and weakening the dominant culture, an environment is created for social, political, and economic turmoil which produces change that will benefit the sponsors of a multiculturalist state. If the government and news media relentlessly pursue issues of race, gender, and diversity in preference to the real issues that need to be addressed, there will be an increasing division of society along the same lines. Which is exactly what the sponsors of multiculturalism want. 

Social instability, caused by a steady erosion of standards and values, coupled with a scramble over dwindling economic opportunities by conflicting ethnic groups, produces precisely the alienation and conflict needed to implement a multicultural state. Further, the lack of common standards and values leads to personal disorganization, resulting in unsociable behavior. This is the life support system of a multicultural state. In a word: anomie. 

As a political tool multiculturalism has several applications. It is used to prevent a national consensus among the electorate. The confluence of divergent life views, cultures, beliefs, religions, ethnic habits, etc. insures a swirling river of discontent upon which the multiculturalist rides. It is a perfect method of ensuring that there can never in the future be accord, unity, and a common agreed upon destiny among those ruled. Multiculturalism represents a basic form of divide and conquer, to the benefit of corrupt government and its sponsors. 

Multiculturalism is likewise a financial tool used to socially and economically level a targeted population. When implemented, it becomes in fact a battle over scarce resources and shrinking economic opportunities, with government weighing in on the side of cheap labour. A continual flow of impoverished workers is insured through immigration (both legal and illegal), who by working for less compensation continually drive wages down. For the vast majority of citizens the standard of living will not increase, but rather constantly decrease. 

As a general rule:

The amount of multiculturalism in any society is directly proportional to the corruption at the top of a political system and inversely proportional to national unity. 
 

This means: multiculturalism will have succeeded in so much as the country has failed. 

Multiculturalism can further be used as "transitional tool" to take a targeted population from one form of government to another. When a political condition of greed, massive corruption, and diversity of objective is coupled to a social condition of drugs, violence, and discontent, therein exists the perfect environment for governmental change to a system that more closely serves long term interests of ruling elitists. Seeing that both the problem and solution are provided by the same people makes the CIA's importation of some one hundred billion dollars worth of cocaine and other drugs into the United States understandable. While at the same time explaining FBI, ATF, and other, more secretive federal government agencies involvement in domestic terrorism or its cover-up. Suddenly, that which erroneously was previously thought to be unrelated events show their common thread and purpose. 

Within the deleterious milieu of multiculturalism exists the propaganda opportunity for re-education of the people into a more malleable entity. A targeted population will be shaped mentally by new forms of public education in the schools, media indoctrination, and by elitist pronouncements. Thus placed in a crucible of economic necessity and social pressure, once free citizens become despondent masses, adjusting to and accepting fundamentally changing national circumstances as a matter of expedient survival. For the reticent, conformity by force will ensue in the form of legal penalties disguised as ant-drug, anti-terrorism, or anti-hate laws. All of this leading toward what George Orwell so aptly predicted in his book 1984

"Almost certainly we are moving into an age of totalitarian dictatorships. An age in which freedom of thought will be at first a deadly sin and later on a meaningless abstraction."

A society is being spawned where those with the most unsociable behavior, deviant lifestyle, or personal failures are given the most by government. This is no accident! It is not government blundering, nor is it misguided liberalism; it is exactly what it is by design, purpose, and objective. A program advocated by both Republican and Democratic administrations for the elitist backers of both are the same. It is the program of a government which has fallen firmly into the hands of evil forces. Failure to recognize this salient point will result in endlessly chasing after tangents, or needlessly blaming those who have no power to change the current direction of events. Anger directed toward liberals,(2) Blacks, or people of colour is wasted. Reorganization of the government from the bottom up would be productive. 

Multiculturalism, like drugs, is an insidious weapon. Both destroy the heart and fabric of a people. All ties to family, community, and one's people as a whole are destroyed by these two opiates of the human mind. Both are sponsored from the top down by one world elitists bent upon creating a world order who's power is such that its subjects posses no potential for resistance. 

By its very nature every emerging police state seeks to harness both the power of the state and the people to its will. When calls are made for support of cryptic slogans such as war on crime, drugs, terrorism, hate, poverty, etc. what is really meant is "grant power to the state and applaud the rape of your freedom." In sum: multiculturalism is another program designed to create the subjects of a Police State Without Borders. When coupled with the "war on drugs" and "war on terrorism," Orwell's world of endless war is realized. It would be their world, their orders, and nothing new, for a lust for despotism is as old as mankind himself. 

The anti-thesis of multiculturalism is moral, religious, and cultural solidarity among the people of a nation. Belief in one's self and the ultimate good of his people. A cohesiveness that produces a national vision, with set boundaries of acceptability and unacceptability in the affairs of a nation, while allowing for the natural differences in men. Multiculturalism as a tool of warfare becomes impotent and rejected in such an environment. 

A necessary first step toward recovery is to look at politics, social policy, and government emanating from Washington D.C. with new eyes, unclouded by a lifetime of   false information and deception propagated by elitist sponsors. Pretending any longer that the bought and paid for political prostitutes in Washington D.C. represent you or anyone you know is tantamount to cutting your own wrist with a razor blade. Self-destructive behavior may qualify one for government "protected class status" under diversity laws–but it will not save you, your family, or your nation. 

America, Canada, and most of Europe are ruled by politicians about whom the best that can be said is that they are men of ill repute, each out to loot the state. One thing is clear, the American ruling elite of today are far closer in ideological viewpoint to world government ruled by a privileged few than it is to the world of the American Revolution or the Constitutional Convention of 1789. Yet still, the spirit of 1776 lives on in this land. For once again rebellion to tyrants in obedience to God is afoot. Listen closely and in the distance you can hear the ring of  liberty's bell calling gallant sons and noble daughters to her aid. They know no left, nor right, only treason. And they will not fear to answer. Let tyrants tremble. And though the heavens fall, let there be justice.

Foot Notes:

1. Those who imagine the United Nations in and of itself as a military threat are naive or deliberately mislead. Global elitist would never trust the U.N. with an army other than one on loan. Because of the U.N.'s diversity there is too great a potential for some member states taking as serious elitist propaganda of "democratic" rule and "equality" then using any military that might exist without elitist sanction. NATO on the other hand is controlled by the United States government, which is the chief force behind the establishment of the New World Order. It is, and will remain in the foreseeable future, the army of choice for insuring compliance. A quick change of hat from green to blue will make NATO troops "UN Forces" when such need is sanctioned by elitists.

2. Indeed liberal thinkers such as Daniel Brandt have written far more eloquently about the deleterious effects of multiculturalism than the present writer. Brandt's essay Multiculturalism and the Ruling Elite is a must read for those interested in the subject.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

I do not support Mr.Beams racist views, but I have a great admiration for his knowledge of Americas problems. Save your hate for those who destroy our country, regardless of their color.

MARRIAGE, DEMOCRACY, AND DICTATORSHIP IN AMERICA

"Democracy passes into despotism." – Plato

We were all born sovereign with the potential of beginning the world all over again. In 1776 a nation rose to protect the rights of the sovereign citizens from the lawless mob, by establishing a democratic republic. The kind of citizen upon which America was built is the smallest most precious member, the noble citizen core cell.

In the 1960s America began to be dismantled, and as a misguided, polite society we forgot to defend our language, culture and borders. We became a "compassionate" democracy and made everyone special and morally equivalent even to demand rights, those strange appetites and lawless behaviors. With such people elevated to our noble values of citizenship, our people allowed themselves and their children to become demoralized and dumbed down by our seeking their acceptance. And so without the checks and balances of moral versus immoral behavior, the rabble multiplied and began voting in their kind into a democratic government that would be destined to become a divided country leading to dictatorship and civil war.

In the Hearts of Men

For thousands of years, a desperate struggle for power has raged on in most homes, resulting in one partner or the other rising as a despotic dictator. One form of despotism is the willful female, with a wimpy victim husband and a terrified brood of demoralized, psychotic or violently rebellious children. Such a left leaning female dictatorship spawns the equivalent; a right leaning male, violently seeking to retrieve his lost role as the authorized head of the home, but always in the wrong way. Right wing could become the dangerously collective disenfranchised males attempting to restore order from the chaos caused by the permissiveness of female-centered homes and their socialist benefactors.

In the United States we have recently seen Democrats playing the role of willful spoiling females, with limp-wristed Republicans playing husbands, struggling and failing in the game of sexual politics, in much the same way most fail in their miserable home lives. Meanwhile, the people have become like traumatized children watching their parents fight over them and becoming polarized in their allegiances to the extreme left- and right-leaning factions as represented by mom and dad.

In most countries, this kind of relationship leads to incurable civil wars, where the winner invariably becomes the new dictator. Therefore the cure lies not in politics, but in the hearts of men. Civil War is the macrocosm in which faulty marital relationships are the microcosm.

Whenever the moral center collapses, the fringe left and the fringe right move in to fill the void, coming together in mortal conflict where innocence cannot survive. Had the United States of America, a sovereign culture, not stood its ground on the principle of freedom for everyone, we would have allowed World War II to plunge the entire world into a permanent darkness, only to end up including ourselves into the forever darkness of misery. Alas, we have retreated from such grace.

The invisible hand of social engineering has succeeded in collapsing the male center of responsibility and hence the family. Women have cunningly been taught to disenfranchise their husbands as fathers, replacing them with boyfriends and the "security" of government fathers. We are unwittingly falling into the time-honored trap, going the way of all nations before us as they dance to the tune of the Pied Piper of sexual politics. Yet there is hope: in these last hours we can still fulfill our founding fathers’ dream by understanding the universal vulnerability of women and the male weakness for them.

The Undeclared War of Masculine and Feminine Politics

Every emotional or excessively willful woman, married to a weak or equally unprincipled ambitious man, exists in a war zone, struggling like a battling dinosaur, with the biggest meanest sinner always ruling the lesser; a family of living hell. The loser filled with anxiety surrenders power to the hate object monster. Because a bigger beast is also less than a person, the tyrant likewise feels pangs for what he or she has become. Man and woman so joined live under the compulsion to destroy one another and pass the legacy of misery on to their children.

So it is with the two American political parties who war with never a peaceful solution in sight. Wherever someone rules with might masquerading as "right," there is endless struggle for power with inevitable tragedy and desolation.

In the battle of the sexes, masculine and feminine becomes left- and right-wing politics. Where both parties set aside their selfish ambitions and yield to what is right in their hearts, recognizing the inborn sense of common sense good, true peace and prosperity is never far off. This inborn order on Earth as it is in heaven, is the reverse of the order on Earth as it is in hell. Government over woman over children over man is the kingdom of hell. God in Christ, over man over woman, over children and them all loving the noble order of godly men as head of the household–that alone is the ideation of the kingdom of heaven on earth.

In the broken man-woman relationships there is an undeclared war where the lie of love causes either party to wake up only to find they are losing a war they didn't know they were fighting. The injured party rarely suspects any subversive motives until covert war is over, then off comes the gloves and the smiling "loving mask,” and this is where open, violent rebellion of the victim begins.

In a like fashion, the two political parties are bound together in an unholy matrimony, with America's treasures going to the socially-engineered left, the most deceitful party. An alien has entered into what could be a noble nation under God – and like in a bad marriage the usurped body politic has been alienating and dividing the people and stealing our freedoms waiting for a doomsday moment to strike. Just like the tyrant in every inherently programmed home, so rises a dictatorship in every adulterous nation made up of bad marriages.

The Rise of the Mob System

Bullies are not born that way; they come from loveless homes, traumatized from their original innocence. Demoralized children, having the transplanted seed of that terrorist/victim inside them, are fatally weak before the strong and strong before the weak. Neither one is capable of dealing with ever present stress due to the terror of their past. This is what unconsciously empowers tyrants to revel in a glorious rush provided by the servility of a chain gang of victims; strong before the weak and weak before the strong with everybody a coward before their own bully. America has become a dog-eat-dog country with the biggest bully of all pulling the strings at top of the political heap of sinful, mesmerized people all slouching towards Sodom and Gomorrah.

Bullies intimidate and thus harvest the innocent essence of others, redeeming a false sense of worth by doing unto others and helplessly trying to retrieve from others the innocence someone originally took from the bully. All desolate souls, deprived of God's loving validation, become nothing more than a chain gang of servants of hell on earth.

Dictatorships are built on the chain of desolate souls, offering themselves up, one into another as living sacrifices to the upside down political authority on top. All are like this—in transition and transformation and fulfilling the glory of their devil “God,” whom they have mistaken for the real God.

The desolate soul has no choice but to be consumed by the dog-eat-dog system and then spit out as a replica of the thing it hates. Those who sit atop the pyramid feed on the failure of humanity. Life force is passed up the chain of command and wicked authority passed down the chain of command. Here we find even children infecting children so that the littlest have no choice but to take out their frustration by pulling wings from butterflies or bullying their baby brothers and sisters. There is little escape from such a system, because the voices of dissent are too few and powerless before the multitudes of the mad body politic.

Standing Firm Against the Mob System

Do you see now how important it is for every person to discover redemption—something inner that will return them to sovereign freedom that is America? You can no longer afford to yield before a bully husband, a bully wife, a bully child, and the bully boss or business partner. And to do this, the first lesson you need to learn is how to never be humiliated or intimidated whereby you fall to resentment. Resentment represents the spiritual weakness that translates into the bully-coward system from which there is no hope of redemption.

In religious parlance, resentment is the handmaiden of ego, or pride. Puffing up in the resentful pride of judgment, your soul is separated from the power of good through which evil might be overcome. Bullies crave control usually because of mysterious loss of selfhood that may be traced to their own childhood traumas, and hence loss of sovereignty. Like it or not bullies replicate the identity of their tormentor and rule exponentially over a disproportionate number of victims.

The schoolteacher in a chain of command may have an innocent face towards you, as if the problem lies with your child, but the actual cause of the problem is the face he or she exhibits toward the child.

This is true with the socialist government, where social problems are created so that helpless victims are further demoralized by being subsidized by a continuum of bureaucratic passive-aggression. The problems caused by the two-faced, passive-aggressive sorts are Legion—with the tendency to create demoralized people are who are compelled to cry out for the cure to the very authorities that created the unnecessary problem in the first place. Thus do such bureaucracies create permanent job security for themselves (while you lose your job) while creating mass dependence welfare. The highest ambition of any bully is to become the government of bullies.

The Moral Decline

The demoralization of every country and society marked for destruction usually begins by the seduction that is manipulative and seductively feminine by nature. 20th century Russian psychiatrists pioneering in the destruction of family have successfully utilized this approach in their quest for world domination. They succeeded in improving upon the ancient enmity between men and women, from which arise all the horrors that have been and ever will be.

The duality of mankind's nature, especially the arrogant proclivity to rule and worship, has been multiplying itself through the generations from a common root origin–the metaphor being the serpent in the garden of Paradise lost. All men seem to inherit vulnerability to the seductive feminine essence through an unbroken lineage. And so through transference, our subjectivity to serve those who make us fail will continue to pass down to demoralizing governments. Before that can happen, we need to more perfectly understand what our collective weakness is, and for each one of us to face our personal demons.

The present (left-wing) domination of any culture marked for destruction begins with intimidation and sexual liberation, with its bottomless pit of freedom from responsibility. It all begins with what fools call freedom and what John Milton calls license. "None can love freedom heartily but good men," he said, "the rest love not freedom, but license." Thus, by way of sexual promiscuity and the hypocritical stench that rises from the pit of common iniquities, people unconsciously abandon the sovereign law of their hearts and descend into slavery. And thus it comes to pass that all hell on earth happens this way. Plato predicted this when he said, "Democracy passes into despotism."

For the devil has sworn in his rotten heart that he will multiply misery and suffering to the end that men will destroy each other and leave no one left to inherit the kingdom of God.

Tainted Love

You see, don't you, that man's inherent first need is sympathy for the inherent flawed self. It is called ego in psychology or pride in religious parlance. The love of a mother and wife, which in the untainted state would nurture husband and child in a wholesome way, tends to nurture their weakness instead. That is why the politics of liberalism with its phony compassion are guilefully feminine and create dependencies rather than freedoms. On the other hand, true love teaches a man to catch a fish—instead of feeding him fish and keeping him dependent, as the enslavers will. Likewise, it is tainted love that the egos of wrong men crave, having been perverted to need it, to the mutual detriment and downfall of themselves and their loved ones.

Just as a man will often leave his decent wife for a woman who meets those secret, lawless and unfulfilled ego needs, so does the compromised populace betray their countrymen by exchanging freedom for such compassionate offerings as the various socialist welfare entitlement programs provide. Such security is rarely seen for what it really is—a reverse order of life, with the malevolent spirit first providing and then presiding over a nation of wretched souls. America has become the welfare state of mothers and government fathers, leaving the country dangerously divided between those who are still free and loyal to the founding fathers’ values and those who are not. Understanding the pure nature of marriage would change everything back to what it was when we were a republic—one nation under God.

Can anyone question the power of a beautiful woman to deceive and seduce a man from his potential root of reason? Can anyone question the self-evident fact that all too many men are notoriously weak for the reassuring candy of lying love? Even Samson with all his strength could not see through the subtle treachery of Delilah, nor could he resist her voluptuous, overpowering pleasures—and his fall had devastating consequences.

Since the Dawn of Man, all that is bad or good culture tends to be nurtured and passed on through the female. All noble, successful cultures revolve around the properly nurturing mothers and respectful noble fathers. Mutations for all living things arise from a strictly environmental source. However, in the demoralized void of personal power there lurks a malevolent presence compelling men to revel in the false security offered by despots, first in their sexual relationships and then in booze, drugs and politics. If what has been said here is true, then what is needed are truly noble men to restore the balance of order at home and in politics. One cannot exist without the other.

The Political Breakdown

Dictatorship can usually be identified as extreme fascist-left or fascist-pseudo-religious-right wing. However, regardless of the party name or affiliation a chain of command comprised of passive aggressive individuals forms the base of every kind of dictatorial power. All passive-aggressive bullies are insecure petty dictators in their own realms of business and home lives. Family tyrants identify with any rising political party and will elect them for the license to legitimize their perverse gratification. All tyrannical governments that represent any political system are made up of passive-aggressive, power-hungry manipulators – yes, of both sexes.

Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin legitimized street thugs and criminals gathered from the prisons to intimidate and then to enforce what then became the law of the lawless. The limitless power of dictatorship, derived by playing to the mob, unleashes evil instincts with unimaginable horrors. All governments of the extreme left or right can rise to power as well—by staffing their agencies with criminals, perverts and degenerates with strange appetites to ensure the populace remains under conditioned reflex responses that keep them submissive to authoritarian rule in a mindless way. And it all begins with a government granting rights to intimidating fringe groups who slowly but surely get their way much like in broken family situations.

As a dictator, one man alone cannot possibly carry out the mass murder and mayhem inherent in such a system, all of which is necessary to create an environment of fear. The horror of despotism requires a chain of command of willing executioners, an army of like-minded clones that are rewarded for their cruelty and incompetence. In every culture there exists that conscienceless class of ambitious, power-hungry people who will unwittingly elect away their own (and others) freedoms, to form a government of the unrighteous, by the unrighteous, and for the unrighteous.

Unfortunately, the mob rises to rule where a democratic republic becomes democracy and where all men are thought to be equal when of course they are not. The laws of the heart ought to be the laws on the books, but as you can see such laws are offensive to compromised perverts of socialism whose sole aim is to bring our country down through such lawlessness as has been described.

Exploiting the confusion of what it means to be equal, virtuous or not, come socialist engineers—and the rest is history. Briefly, when you give rights to the wrong people the wrong people will take away the right rights, and the right people's rights.

Communists shroud their "democracy" with different disguises from time to time. Presently, it's the Green or environmental party causing us to forget that we are a democratic republic—an entirely different creature.

In an attempt to establish democracy and displace our Republic, Democrats called to "strengthen their democracy," by inviting the rebel of every race and color and creed to cross open borders, to change by mingling our language and culture, in an attempt to overwhelm our Republic, and they are succeeding. The goal of communism was to be achieved not by bullets, but by ballots, not by illegal, but by legal means, not by a few wicked powerful persons—but the consensus vote of a majority whose minds have been manipulated by the media.

James Madison wrote,

"In a pure democracy there is nothing to check the enforcements to sacrifice the weak party…. Hence, it is that such democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence in contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security in all rights of property, and having in general been as short in their lives, as they have been violent in their deaths."

Rome, once a magnificent Republic, declined into a democracy with the inevitable irreversible plunge into despotism that we are seeing in our country today.

To free yourself from the state where neither rebellion nor conformity helps, you must learn to deal properly, without resentment, to pressures of any kind. My Be Still and Know meditation exercise shows you how to do this and helps you practice remaining in the proper state. You can get a copy at fhu.com or by calling 800-877-3227.

Immorality

America Has Already Collapsed

October 5th, 2012 by

http://www.activistpost.com/2012/10/america-has-already-collapsed.html

 

By Brandon Smith,
 

Many of us in the liberty movement find ourselves searching for a distinct root cause of the trials and tribulations of American culture — the Holy Grail catalyst that, if unraveled, would save this country and heal the septic wounds covering the landscape of our hobbled society. The obvious answer would be to remove the global elites who are poisoning the well from the picture entirely. Yes, this has to be done eventually. However, we must also identify how those elites have been able to so thoroughly con the masses of this nation for so long.

What inherent weakness has made us susceptible to manipulation? For this question, there are NO easy answers. But, if I had to choose a single frailty of our collective psyche as paramount to our downfall, I would say that Americans most of all are confounded by their own patriotism. We often embrace the ideal without knowing what it really means.

There are in fact two kinds of patriotism: the concrete, and the imagined. Many Americans fall haphazardly into the fantasy of being patriotic. They define patriotism upon the exploits of the mainstream and of the government in control at the time. They become cheerleaders for the establishment instead of stalwart champions of their country’s founding principles. In fact, true patriotism is NOT about blindly defending one’s nation or leadership regardless of its trespasses; true patriotism is about defending the philosophy that made one’s nation possible and prosperous in the first place — even if that means standing against the power structure in place today.

I often hear the uneducated and unaware claim that America and its principles have been a bane to the rest of the world. They say America is at the center of the vampire squid, flailing its vicious tentacles against innocent foreign civilizations. This is an oversimplification at best. The crimes that these well-meaning but naïve activists scorn cannot be attributed to “America” because the American ideal has been completely abandoned by those in the seat of power in our modern era. We do not live in “America” — at least, not the America that the Founding Fathers and authors of the Constitution created. Therefore, the original philosophy that gave birth to America is not the issue, the abuse and neglect of that philosophy is.

America has been ransacked and deformed into a hideous lampoon of its former self. This has been done for the most part through the destruction of the guiding principles we pretend we still hold onto as a culture, but in reality have cast aside. If we are ever to undo the damage that has already been done, we have to rediscover what the original design of America was. Wailing and growling about the inadequacies of the present does nothing unless we also establish where it is that we have fallen from grace. What is America supposed to be? What did the Founders truly intend?

America Is Supposed To Be Controlled By The People

The concept of a Republic revolves around a reversal of the traditional narrative of power. Throughout most of history, government stood at the top of the pyramid, where the hands of a few dominated the destinies of the citizenry. The future was a matter for the elites, not the peasants, to be concerned with. The American Republic, as designed by the revolutionary colonists who defeated the old oligarchy (at least for a time), flipped the role of government to servant rather than master. The goal was to make government tangible and accountable rather than abstract and untouchable. The America of today has no such accountability anymore.

We have a two-party system that pursues the mechanizations of globalism in tandem, not in contest. When both parties have the same desires and goals, when both parties collude to remove civil liberties rather than protect them, and when both parties are funded by the same corporate backers, there is no such thing as change through the process of elections. Anyone who claims that government corruption can be punished through the ballot box hasn’t the slightest clue how our system really functions. They think we are still living in the original “America,” one that values the voice of the people.

When the government decides to push through banker bailouts, the Patriot Act, the National Defense Authorization Act, etc., all while ignoring opposition by a vast majority of citizens, it is clear that the paradigm has shifted and the American value of representation by and for the people is lost.

America Is Supposed To Prosper Through Free Markets

One of the first acts of the American Revolution in the fight against British tyranny was to decouple from British economic dominance. They stopped relying on goods produced in England and peddled by the European merchant class and began making their own. From homespun clothing to homemade rifles, Americans created a legitimate free-market environment. Free markets are systems controlled by the people, thriving on the natural functions of supply and demand. They are not administered by bureaucracies or corporate hierarchies that manipulate the economy to fit preconceived political and social ends.

Free markets are decentralized markets. Corporations, which obstruct decentralization, were never meant to exist according to Adam Smith, the architect of traditional free markets. Today’s framework operates on centralization and the removal of options and choices, which is facilitated by the imbalance and lack of accountability in the corporate legal structure.

I have to laugh every time I hear someone attack “capitalism” and free markets as the source of all our ills. America has not had the pleasure of free markets for at least 100 years (since the construction of the private Federal Reserve, a collusion between banking and government interests). No one alive today has ever seen an actual American “free market” beyond community barter, so to blame free markets for our modern failings is rather thoughtless. To summarize, the U.S. economy is nothing like what the founders envisioned and fought for.

America Is Supposed To Have A Reserved Foreign Policy

The Founding Fathers specifically sought to keep America out of foreign entanglements and haphazard alliances. They knew from experience that the elites and monarchies of Europe often used wars as a means of consolidating power and keeping populations in relative fear. They were well aware of the methodologies of Niccolo Machiavelli and knew that forced alliances were a trap used to ensnare nations into unnecessary conflict and financial dependency while keeping the masses subservient through false patriotism.

Today, our government has utterly violated the original principles of reserved foreign policy, especially in the past century. The excuse always used is that “we are under attack,” yet we usually discover later that these “attacks” were actually fabricated by our own leaders. From the sinking of the USS Maine, to the sinking of the Lusitania, to the Gulf of Tonkin and beyond, for the past 100 years, Americans have been presented with false flag threats used as leverage to convince us to become entangled in foreign engagements. This strategy has become so common that elitists now openly admit their intentions to commit future false flags in order to draw us into yet another war,this time with Iran.

The current policy of “exporting democracy” has not only been a complete failure (just look at Egypt, Libya, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, etc.), it is also a total affront to the foundation of the American dynamic. Patriotism in the name of interventionism is foolhardy and decidedly un-American.

America Is Supposed To Respect Individual Rights

The Founders witnessed the extreme abuses of government firsthand: invasion of privacy, invasion of property, wrongful arrest and imprisonment, loss of representation, overt and malicious taxation, thuggish law enforcement, and the targeting of those who dared to dissent in their speech. The excuse used by the British for their tyrannical behavior was, essentially, national security. In the end, though, the elites’ actions had nothing to do with security for the populous and everything to do with what they saw as opposition to their hegemony. Our government has become a mirror image of the elitist power-mongers of Britain in the days of the revolution. Absolutely everything the colonists fought against has been re-established by the globalists in our political structure today, once again, all in the name of national security.

We have seen the enslavement of our money supply and general economy by the Federal Reserve; invasive and violent taxation through the Internal Revenue Service; loss of privacy through the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance and the Patriot acts; loss of property rights through multiple agencies including the Bureau of Land Management, the Environmental Protection Agency, the IRS, the Food and Drug Administration, etc. (who claim their tightening fist is for our own safety, yet they constantly overlook corporate misdeeds that put the public in true danger while pummeling average citizens for minor or non-existent offenses); the militarization of law enforcement through the Department of Homeland Security and Federally dominated fusion centers; potential loss of Habeas Corpus through the NDAA; and even wrongful arrest against those who merely speak openly of their discontent (look into the case of Marine veteran Brandon Raub for a taste of what lay ahead).

What Have We Become?

Those who rally behind the modern concept of America rally behind a façade — an empty shell devoid of the heart and soul that gave life to this once great experiment. I do not support what America is. I support what America was and what it could be again if the truth is adequately smashed into the faces of the currently oblivious public. If this country is content to suckle from the putrid teat of globalism and forsake the moral force of conscience that gave it life, then it has become another place — an alien land.

I have heard the argument that America is meant to be a kind of chameleon built to change its stripes and adapt to the demands of the era. I have heard it argued that the Constitution and the principles of the Founding Fathers are outdated and inadequate for our new age of technological wizardry and terrorist ideologies. This is pure intellectual idiocy. The principles of freedom never expire. Individual liberty is inherent and eternal. It is the driving force of every great accomplishment in the history of mankind. The Constitution and the Bill of Rights embody the spirit of that eternal battle of individual liberty. There is no adaptation. There is only freedom or tyranny.

It is time for us to decide what kind of Americans we wish to be: the deluded rah-rah puppets of a desiccated totalitarian society, or the watchmen on the wall. Will we be the keepers and protectors of the vital core of the American identity, or will we be fly-by-night consumers of the flavor-of-the-day political carnival, eating every tainted sample from the elitist platter in an insane attempt to replace our free heritage with a sleek, sexy, rehashed form of top-down feudalism?

It's Over

 

U S Banks Love Real Dollars and Illegal Drug Money Comes in Cash

June 26th, 2012 by

http://truth-out.org/news/item/9937-how-the-us-government-banks-prison-industrial-complex-corrupt-officials-businesses-law-enforcement-racists-and-the-cia-benefit-from-illegal-drugs

Mark Karlin

Truthout

A recent article in The Guardian UK offers evidence that “while cocaine production ravages countries in Central America, consumers in the US and Europe are helping developed economies grow rich from the profits.”

According to The Guardian UK story, the study by two Colombian professors found that “2.6% of the total street value of cocaine produced remains within the country [Columbia], while a staggering 97.4% of profits are reaped by criminal syndicates and laundered by banks, in first-world consuming countries.”

 

One of the researchers, Alejandro Gaviria said: “We know that authorities in the US and UK know far more than they act upon. The authorities realize things about certain people they think are moving money for the drug trade – but the DEA [US Drug Enforcement Administration] only acts on a fraction of what it knows.”

“It’s taboo to go after the big banks,” added Gaviria’s co-researcher Daniel Mejía. “It’s political suicide in this economic climate, because the amounts of money recycled are so high.”

Since Wachovia Bank (now owned by Wells Fargo) was levied a fine in 2010 (but no criminal charges) for money laundering hundreds of millions (perhaps billions) of illegal drug cartel dollars, there does not appear to be any large crackdown on the practice in the United States, although lip service is often given to coming down hard on money laundering.

Indeed, more than one analyst has speculated that the billions of dollars in drug cash are vitally important to US banks because so many of their financial assets are tied up in non-fluid assets.

According to a 2011 article in AlterNet:

Antonio Maria Costa, former executive director of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime said in 2008, “there’s evidence to suggest that proceeds from drugs and crimes were the only liquid investment capital for banks in trouble of collapsing [during the financial crisis].”

If billions of dollars in drug money rescued banks and other financial institutions from closing down then it’s reasonable to argue that the economy itself is addicted to drugs.

As professor Dale Scott noted in his book, American War Machine: Deep Politics; the CIA Global Drug Connection: “A US Senate … banking committee reportedly estimated that between $500 billion and $1 trillion dollars are laundered each year through banks worldwide, with approximately half of that amount funneled through US Banks.”

In the ’70s and ’80s, Miami became known as a city that was experiencing an economic renaissance based on the flow of illegal drug money (mostly from Colombia at the time) into the city. But the cash didn’t just get laundered through banks; it was used to buy legitimate businesses; condos; houses; investments; and more than likely a lot of corrupt law enforcement, custom and government officials.

Estimated $50 Billion in Illegal Drug Sales From Mexico Can Only Occur With US Corruption

In interviews, Truthout has been told again and again that the chain of distribution for illegal drugs is changing. Whereas before it was divided primarily among Mafia families in big cities, the Latin American cartels have now set up networks within the US.

But one thing hasn’t changed; it still takes a lot of corruption to buy off virtual domestic impunity for the kingpins overseeing the domestic sale of prohibited drugs. Searching Google, you can find everything from Transportation Security Administration agents paid off to let drugs pass through airport checks, to cops who look the other way or actually steal the drug money, to border patrol agents letting drugs pass through, to local government officials overlooking illegal activity.

However, rarely does one come across the arrest and prosecution of a kingpin in the United States, or of a high-level law enforcement official in a major city or a politician being indicted. Does this mean that powerful individuals in the government and law enforcement are all squeaky clean as $50 billion in illegal drugs go whizzing through America, day in and day out? Not likely.

The emphasis of the DEA, FBI and the Department of Homeland Security is on catching the “guppies” without appearing to be working their way up to the people running the wholesale-to-retail illicit drug business in the US or their protectors. (In Latin America, however, the US is all about catching kingpins, although that doesn’t often happen.)

For instance, the El Paso Times reported last year that “two former law enforcement officers allege that they cannot get anyone to investigate allegations that the Mexican drug cartels have corrupted US law officers and politicians in the El Paso border region…. Gonzales and Dutton allege that the FBI dropped them after ‘big names’ on the US side of the border began to surface in the drug investigations.”

David Ramirez rose up the ranks of the Border Patrol to become a special agent at the Department of Homeland Security. He just wrote a book, “Beneath the Same Sky,” a candid analysis of the borderland drug war. Interviewed by the Texas Tribune, he described US customs corruption matter-of-factly:

I can only tell you my experiences and what I saw. It was the lure of the money and as I write in the book, they offer this inspector $50,000 for what I call a “wave” – a loaded vehicle to come through the port. And they guaranteed them five vehicles a week so you are talking that kind of money, which is tempting. You have to be a man or a woman who knows their moral ground to say, “No. I am not doing it….”

“It’s capitalism, I would think – supply and demand,” Ramirez said further. “The demand for the drug is here and then we say, ‘Okay Mexico or Latin America, fix your problem over there, but we still want our drugs.’”

Different Interests in the US Financially Gain From the War on Drugs 

It’s not just that some law enforcement officials are corrupt. They don’t need to be for police departments to make money from arresting minor drug offenders.

Police departments around the nation gain from laws that allow the seizing of assets that the law enforcement officers allege may be related to drug crime, without even a court case involved. The libertarian CATO institute wrote about this practice that allows the agencies to use the proceeds from the confiscated money or property to enlarge departmental budgets. The report is called “Forfeit for Profit: The Abuse of Civil Asset Forfeiture.”

Law enforcement agencies can also get extra money from federal grants if they show a high number of arrests related to drug use and selling, so it is of financial value to the department to arrest as many people for drug related offenses as possible.

Neill Franklin is executive director of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP). He calls this change to an emphasis on arrests of the drug user as a “shift to the numbers game” for police departments to receive more funding. Franklin, a 34-year law enforcement veteran of the Maryland State Police and Baltimore Police Department, said, “we worked in predominantly white areas, yet most of our cases and lock ups were minorities. There were very few cases in the outlying areas that involved whites.”

Franklin told Truthout:

“Over my career I saw a shift to a war on the users of drugs. In the ’70s when I worked narcotics it was about working your way up the chain of the sellers to the kingpins. That’s how it was. As we got further into the ’80s and ’90s, we attacked the demand side. We concentrated on locking up the usual street corner suspects and before we knew it we had quadrupled the incarceration rate and most of that increase was from us arresting users. A lot of the small time dealers sell drugs because they need to support their habit of using drugs. The day of the law enforcement concentrating on kingpins has gone. It’s all about increasing the numbers of arrests.”

To Franklin this brings up the question of why privatized prison companies are simultaneously benefiting financially from the increased incarceration, a subject that has been analyzed many times on Truthout. If the Correction Corporation of America needs a 90 percent capacity rate to make a profit on a prison, then you need to put the bodies in the beds. Franklin pointed out that the profiteering doesn’t end with the prison business. There is the drug testing industry, parole officers, prosecutors, police, lawyers, rehabilitation counselors, psychologists etc. Arresting minor drug offenders, in short, is big business.

Race, Drugs, Incarceration and the New Jim Crow

Michelle Alexander, author of the paradigm-shifting book on racism through the criminalization of being a black male, “The New Jim Crow,” recently wrote a commentary in The Guardian UK in which she persuasively argues that “the US war on drugs created a whole new generation of the dispossessed, with millions of black people denied their rights.”

Alexander wrote of the racist impact of the war on drugs in the black community, particularly among young black males:

The uncomfortable truth, however, is that crime rates do not explain the sudden and dramatic mass incarceration of African Americans during the past 30 years. Crime rates have fluctuated over the last few decades – they are currently at historical lows – but imprisonment rates have consistently soared. Quintupled, in fact. And the vast majority of that increase is due to the “war on drugs” and the “get tough movement.” Drug offenses alone accounted for about two-thirds of the increase in the federal inmate population, between 1985 to 2000, and more than half of the increase in the state prison population.

The drug war has been brutal, but those who live in white communities have little clue to the devastation wrought. This war has been waged almost exclusively in poor communities of color, even though studies consistently show that people of all colors use and sell illegal drugs at remarkably similar rates. In fact, some studies indicate that white youths are significantly more likely to engage in illegal drug dealing than black youths. They also have about three times the number of drug-related visits to the emergency room as their African American counterparts.

That is not what you would guess, though, when entering our nation’s prisons and jails, overflowing as they are with black and brown drug offenders. In some states, African Americans comprise 80-90% of all drug offenders sent to prison….

Again, not so. President Ronald Reagan officially declared the current drug war in 1982, when drug crime was declining, not rising. From the outset, the war had little to do with drug crime and nearly everything to do with racial politics. The drug war was part of a grand and highly successful Republican party strategy of using racially coded political appeals on issues of crime and welfare to attract poor and working-class white voters who were resentful of, and threatened by, desegregation, busing and affirmative action.

If you follow Alexander’s analysis to its logical conclusion, the war on drugs in the United States fulfills a racist stereotype by disproportionately sending black males (and black women) to jails, where they are branded and marginalized as felons, while white users of illegal drugs – proportionately – are treated much more leniently by law enforcement and the judicial system.

This policy misleadingly confirms stereotypes of blacks that racists love, even though they are put in prison for offenses that are nonviolent in nature and that are driven by poverty, social neglect and incentivized police department arrest numbers.

But it also serves another important purpose. When poor, stereotyped members of society can only find an entrepreneurial future in the illegal drug business, or use drugs as self-medication to allow them to escape the squalidness of vast swathes of urban America that hold little opportunity of employment, the government does not have to attend to building neighborhoods and creating jobs. Drugs become the opiate of the masses, as meth also has in many poor, rural white communities.

As with the 50,000-plus mostly poor Mexicans who have died in the failed war on drugs, certain lives are deemed of less value in the US – and if there is big money to be made out of the drug trade, it’s going to end up in banks and business ventures, not in the hood (with few exceptions). The undesirable resourceless drug users are both profitable and expendable.

US Hegemony and Military Control Over Latin America and the CIA

An established journalist, Gary Webb, wrote a series of articles for the San Jose Mercury-News in 1996 with a shocking account of how the CIA, during the Reagan administration, allowed cocaine to freely be flown into the US (particularly crack cocaine) in return for drug cartel cooperation with funding and arming the Contras against the Sandinistas in the Nicaraguan civil war. At first, the series was a bombshell, but then the CIA fought back through established Eastern newspapers and the Mercury-News retracted the series.

Webb, however, wrote an even more in-depth and credible account of the CIA condoning drugs entering the US in a 1999 book: “Dark Alliance: The CIA, the Contras and the Crack Cocaine Explosion.” However, his reputation was so slandered by CIA flacks that he eventually committed suicide in 2004.  Subsequent reports, after his death, corroborated the credibility of his investigative account.

It is not the only allegation of the US turning a blind eye or even politically using drugs entering the US as foreign policy strategic tools. Right now, the US is more or less ignoring the surge in poppy growth in Afghanistan so as not to complicate its precarious role in that nation – and the economic need of farmers there. President George Herbert Walker Bush, who headed the CIA for a time, didn’t object to Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega’s (he was a highly paid CIA asset) role in the drug trade until Noriega started to go rogue on US foreign policy, thus being perceived as becoming a threat to the Canal Zone.

In “Beyond Bogota: Diary of a Drug War Journalist,” Garry M. Leech described how the US focus on attacking the growing of cocaine in the Marxist FARC-controlled area is counterproductive, because the right-wing paramilitary area in Columbia grows more and sells it at a cheaper rate. Translated, this means that the US government is more concerned about the political threat of FARC (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) than how much cocaine ends up in the United States.

The drug war in Latin America offers the opportunity to increase US military hegemony and thus preserve markets where the US can dominate governments and obtain cheap labor and natural resources (particularly mining and oil). It also sews death, fear and chaos that stifle populist revolts against oligarchical and military rule.

Drug Cartels Are Headed by Pirate Businessmen Marketing a Commodity in Demand and the American Corporate  Class Loves Supply Side Entrepeneurs

Minus the gruesome violence in their host countries, drug cartels are just illegal businessmen, so the business class in the US can relate to them, as can the CIA. They are aggressive, ruthless and greedy, not unlike some of their bankers on Wall Street.

The cost of a drug war to achieve geopolitical objectives then is immense in the loss of life, the breakdown of civil society in the nations affected in Latin America, and in the moral grounding, racial injustice and credibility of our governmental and business institutions.

Eric E. Sterling, who wrote many of the severe anti-drug laws while serving as former assistant counsel to the House Judiciary Committee, indicated second thoughts in a recent Forbes commentary:

Excluding the significant markets in methamphetamine, Ecstasy, psychedelics and other drugs, this is a criminal retail market in the range of $300 billion annually. Most of the markup is at the retail level. This enormous market is evidence that our efforts to stop the drug supply create the incentives that have grown a global criminal infrastructure of countless drug prohibition enterprises….

All over the world, drug organizations depend upon corrupting border guards, customs inspectors, police, prosecutors, judges, legislators, cabinet ministers, military officers, intelligence agents, financial regulators and presidents and prime ministers. Businesses cannot count on the integrity of government officials in such environments.

And corrupted we have become, while publically taking the moral high ground and precipitating a blood bath in Latin America.

The New World Order in 2012 and How We Can Defeat It

June 24th, 2012 by

 

http://www.theglobalistreport.com/new-world-order-2012/

 

By Andrew Puhanic 

In 2012 very few people understand what the New World Order is all about and how the New World Order has evolved to what it is today. This lack of understanding is derived from a systematic denial by the Globalists and Politicians that the New World Order even exists at all.

When the term New World Order first came into vogue in the wake of the Gulf War, but especially following the collapse of the Soviet Union, it evoked the promise of an exciting, higher plateau of international relations, including:

  • International security, particularly between East and West, no longer based on the concept of Mutual Assured Destruction (and other equally MAD theories of deterrence) but guaranteed by the reality of a unipolar world, led by the West.
  • Freedom to travel and migrate for people confined for decades (or entire lifetimes) behind the “Iron Curtain”.
  • Opportunity for the enslaved communist economies of Central and Eastern Europe to serve primarily indigenous needs on the basis of market principles, rather than support the economy of the USSR, as required for decades by the Council on Mutual Economic Assistance (CMEA).
  • Transformation of the economies of Russia and the other former Soviet republics into market based ones.
  • The chance for Central and Eastern Europeans and former Soviet citizens to enjoy material advantages previously denied.
  • Freedom for Third World Governments from having to choose sides in the overriding bipolar political / military struggle that had dominated global relations for 45 years.
  • Optimism among Third World leaders who thought that perhaps they could now devote more energy to improving the living standards of their own citizens (the pessimists feared the opposite, now that their UN votes counted for little).
  • The assumption that inevitable regional disputes could be settled quickly on the basis of coordinated international action, possibly on the Gulf War Coalition model.
  • A new scope for collective security by the West with co-operation from much of the Arab World.

Reality of the New World Order in 2012

This view of the New World Order was a rosy one. However, It underestimated and neglected a number of vital factors. The reality of today paints a different picture.

The bipolarity of the geo-political world (one that is forced to accept blame for international tension, even while it provided the longest continuous period of peace Europe had known in the 20th Century) was succeeded not by an orderly unipolar world but by a disorderly multipolar one.

This multi-polarity has, at least, reduced the relative weight of internationalsecurity and military alliances as the currency of international relations and supplanted them with economic and commercial competition that is headed by the Globalists.

The relaxation of international tension has also permitted co-operation and diplomatic breakthrough in areas of Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and Southern Africa, probably not otherwise possible.

Throughout much of the world, the demise of Communism led to a greater acceptance of Western values relating to good government, free press and civil rights.

 

  • Regional and even local problems are tending to become more thoroughly and more quickly globalized, just as global institutions are increasingly paralysed in their attempts to deal with them. The tragic events of Rwanda were one example of how the world took it upon its self to take the blame for the conflict.
  • We face new and destabilizing non-traditional threats to world order, some a byproduct of augmented economic and commercial competition. e.g; environmental degradation, increased economic migration, rising international organized criminal activity, and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.
  • In Europe and the Middle East, the most immediate and sharply felt threat is that of ethnic conflict and civil war resulting from the release of nationalist and irredentist forces thought to have been excised from the European psyche in 1945. When one contemplates for a moment the carnage in Gorazde, in Mostar and in Sarajevo, how wrong we were!
  • The suppression of ethnicity and nationalism, the centuries-old twin scourges of Europe and the Middle East which, twice in the last 80 years blighted the continents and beyond, turns out to have been only temporary, necessitated by the overriding strategic demands of the Cold War.

Is the New World Order the Old World Disorder?

As is painfully evident in the former Yugoslavia and elsewhere, the forces of nationalism, ethnicity, racism and religious extremism are unbound and unbounded in ways that only the most cynical among us would have predicted possible.

Add to the stark communal violence from pressures of economic restructuring which affects all but the most entrepreneurial or corrupt during the painful but necessary transition from Communism to Capitalism, and the resulting sum is a glaring picture of instability that potentially threatens the security of the entire world.

It is now clear that the end of the Cold War (and the advent of the New World Order) does not mean the end of instability or threat.

What it does is allow for open conflict in regions where formerly such conflict would have been, at best, unthinkable or, at worst, successfully held in check.

How the New World Order in 2012 is Changing?

In this new climate of uncertainty, the very definition of national security has been broadened to include not only protection of traditional political and military targets, but also concern for the illicit transfer of leading-edge technology, the safeguarding of the environment and the containment, through international multilateral means, of regional and ethnic conflict, including euphemistic “civil” wars (a subject largely ignored in the past by the international community).

This approach strongly implies two phenomena: (1) interdependence and the (2) strengthening of international coordinating organizations, specifically the Globalist United Nations.

In response to these requirements of the New World Order, it appears the world is taking the following steps:

1. The world has broadened its concept of national security to include the notion of Co-operative Security. This does not mean it has neglected the narrower concept of military security. It simply recognize that in today’s world the attainment of security includes elements other than the traditional one, e.g.

  • The encouragement of integration among regional economies.
  • The granting of economic assistance over military assistance.
  • Help in the establishment of government.

2. The Globalist Elite are attempting to shift the emphasis away from “collective defence” to “collective security”. They are doing this because the mindset of countries who collaborate to defend themselves (mob mentality) usually do so in order to leverage off other countries' military expertise.

This presents a problem to the Globalists because the collective defence mentality is not primarily driven by fear like the collective security mentality. Therefore, the Globalists are in a better position when countries collaborate (break down their borders and governance via collective security) because this mindset is a self-perpetuating fear that can never be undone (i.e. Once countries collaborate due to collective security, that cooperation is nearly impossible to undo and will eventually morph into a union / world government)

What can we do about the New World Order in 2012?

It is, to an extent, in the hands of each of us; in the intelligence and tolerance with which we approach the truly difficult injustices in contemporary international relations and in the will we bring to bear to correct such inequities.

The New World Order has arrived and needs to be presented for what it is.

The global community of individuals, free from defined roles established by the State, needs to come together tosystematically remove the Globalists within our political and social circles who are intentionally planting the seeds of world governments and the New World Order.

At the moment, the only way we can stop the New World Order is via the following:

  • A systematic campaign that encompasses all types of media to present to the global community what the New World Order is all about and who are the Globalists perpetuating the New World Order ideology.
  • An organised collective that encompasses a core group of anti-Globalists who can encourage a consistent and systematic fight against the Globalists via organised means.
  • Dismantle all government-backed Globalist institutions such as the United Nations and the Council of Foreign Relations so that advocates of the New World Order don’t have an official platform to push their agenda to the unsuspecting public.
  • Take a systematic approach to document and record other lesser-known Globalist institutions such as the Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission and the Club of Rome. To the established anti-Globalist movement, these three institutions are well-known. However, to ordinary people, these institutions are still either unknown or considered conspiracy theory.
  • Stop the disinformation that is rife throughout most education systems about the banking system, economics and how political systems function. If there is a means to provide students guidance about the truth of how our banks, the political system and how our economy functions, at least they will be given an opportunity to hear the truth before being taught the lies of the Globalists and those who were seeking a New World Order.
  • Hold the corporate media accountable when it reports on the issues, stories andnews items that are specific to the Globalists and the Globalist Agenda. The fact of the matter is that 90% of ordinary people receive their news and information directly from the corporate media. The alternative media in its current capacity must continue to grow in numbers to attain a position that will influence the masses.

Final Remarks

At the moment, the Globalists have taken a significant steps backward in their objective to achieve aNew World Order and World Government. This was only achieved by the efforts of the alternative media and anti-Globalist movement.

However, due to the size and nature of the Globalists, the struggle of anti-Globalists will continue for many years to come. We need to strengthen our resolve at an order of magnitude greater than they already have done if we are to bring about a more peaceful and just world.
