How can any citizen express fidelity to their own kind when they accept that resistance, even if misguided, needs to be practiced? The following passage speaks from the grave:
“The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive. It will often be exercised when wrong, but better so than not to be exercised at all.”
Is this the correct course for freemen or is this a formula for disaster? The answer lies in the next quote:
“When wrongs are pressed because it is believed they will be borne, resistance becomes morality.”
The justification for defiance is because it is moral. What radical spoke these words? Must have been some malcontent criminal disgruntled with his own failures blaming society for his inability to get along with his peers. The reaction to fixing wrongs, perceived or real, is natural and universal. A response to a political condition may not on the surface seem to be proactive. Hitherto, on closer examination, standing up to injustice and righting wrongs is steeped in courage and fortitude. The great confusion that persists in political discourse arises from a distorted sense of involving a society into areas that were never meant to correct. The entire ethos that professes interventionism into the affairs of others is the source of error that has brought more pain and suffering to humanity than most are willing to acknowledge. Understanding the distinctions of what and when to take up the crusader cause or the missionary gospel is the delicate task of pursuing and achieving political knowledge.
Still the other ingredient that needs to be observed is that rebelliousness must be rooted in morality. Moral principles need not be codified with any particular religious sect. Yet, even a prolific atheist ethicist like Ayn Rand could not bridge the great divide to oblige civil conduct in the absence of a creator authority. Misrepresentation that fosters an exact separation of church and state has become a public poison that undermines and emasculates the moral fiber of society. Perverting history is the goal of cultural relativists. Progressive progress is their creed. Both are toxic, the former giving illusions the status of fact and the later the seed of societal destruction.
Reactionaries are called intractable not because they are wrong, but because they oppose the idiotic course that secular humanism has superimposed upon humanity. Essentially, at the end of the day, what matters is that the values and principles of traditional Western Civilization are founded upon rational honesty and spiritual compliance. Both are necessary to achieve a healthy and vigorous society. Revelation has become suspect and reviled by the social reformers who seek to expel any limiting factor on the excess of human behavior. Morality within a “Politically Correct” culture requires the removal of God from the political landscape. Establishing a total separation of church and state is actually a social requirement in order to bury God and make Man omniscient.
Radical actions are easily understood compared to reactionary principles. The notion that championing tradition means preserving the status quo is beyond absurdity. The current condition has become a callous chaotic cauldron. Maintaining the norms of a culture gone mad does not defend civilization or protect a society. All that has been cherished and worthy of preservation has been demeaned, denigrated and defamed by irresponsible clones that apply a “Totalitarian Collectivism”, designed by hieratical elites and practiced by fanatical “True Believers”. These are the real subversives.
Breaking All The Rules in your own personal life is the moral social equivalent to witnessing one’s faith in Supreme Being authority. Exercising humility to divine providence, while practicing proactive civil disobedience, has become the formula to combat the malicious forces that seek the ultimate destruction of our most unique nation. “So to avoid confusion and to re-establish and capture a clear and elegant interpretation of the essence in the paleoconservative, Old Cause, Populism, America First, Washington “farewell address” mindset, we are coining the term: Revo-Ami. Revo – for revolutionary, Ami – for friend of America.” This concept was first presented back in 2003. How many have been motivated to put into practice the revolutionary spirit of our forbearers? RADICAL REACTIONARY is a project that will boldly put forth the case for the OLD RIGHT heritage that founded America.
“Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue”, in the entire citation from Barry Goldwater. Is this viewpoint consistent with the quotes in the beginning of this Preamble? Does it not drive home the need for both liberty and justice within the same society? Legitimate wrongs are often overlooked or seldom emphasized by counterfeit conservatives. The phony NeoCons are betrayers of the true legacy of limited government, individual liberty and personal responsibility. The genius that wrote this admonition message of distrust for centralized despotism and state tyranny was none other than Thomas Jefferson. Both Goldwater and Jefferson would now be considered kindred cousins. Both would be deemed radical reactionaries. And in the era of Patriot Act newspeak, both would be condemned as potential terrorists.
Posterity will not forgive the sins of omission. How many citizens deserve the opportunity to follow in the footsteps of the brave patriots that fought at Lexington and Concord? Each person should have that chance, but few earn the right to become guardians of our heritage. Reactionary is not a dirt word or a dishonored person. The traditionalist is an enlightened diehard in the defense of individual liberty and social justice. Knowing what that means and how to aggressively achieve the original promise of America is the purpose of this series. The adventure is not based upon jingoistic hubris or deviant greed; but rests upon an unerring faith in divine providence as our guide.
Often attributed to Alexis de Tocqueville: “America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great”, has rung true for generations. Today, the essential fabric of society is in turmoil. No longer does governance value being good and is consumed with only being great. The demise of America is real. The reversal of fortunes won’t be based upon financial wealth or military entanglements. The solution to restoration of goodness requires traditional ideals and radical deeds. Join in this renaissance journey for the sake of the nation, your neighbors and family.

There is one undeniable fact that is emerging from the world of international finance, if you want to retain the money that you have earned, you are going to have to leave the country or you are going to have to overthrow the bankers that have hijacked your government.
I will not mince words, this means revolution in which your primary foe will be DHS and their 2.2 billion rounds of newly acquired ammunition and their 2700 armored personnel carriers. There is no middle ground, it is either fight or acquiesce. And the bad guys know this and this is why they have a plan to incrementally steal your money under false pretenses so as not to alert the masses and rouse them into a state of revolution. .
How We Got In the Present Mess
The threat to your financial well-being has far less to do with the persistent and incremental theft of your money by the Federal Reserve, which has resulted in the value of your dollar eroding to a value of less than 4 cents over the past 100 years. The present day threat has to do with the outright theft of your bank account by new IMF policies.
These same bankers, who have deflated the dollar and wrecked the economy, are coming after your pensions, as I have written about; and now the banksters want your bank accounts.
The IMF Is the Enforcer of the Global Elite
IMF director, Christine Lagarde, has been recklessly advocating for a wholesale seizure of 10% of all accounts in the Eurozone, but because there may be riots and even a revolution if there are wholesale bail-ins, the IMF has settled on a more incremental plan of economic subjugation in a which a 10% tax will implemented against all bank account holders in order to pay down the debt.
What the IMF and the central bankers are not telling you is that the debt can never be paid down because the primary source of the debt comes from the derivatives market which totals a minimum of one quadrillion dollars which is 16 times the entire value of the planet. In short, these banksters are merely trying to stay one step ahead of the burning bridge by stealing your pensions and bank accounts. And does anyone truly believe that these banksters will stop at looting just 10% of your bank account? When does 10% become 20%, which becomes 30%, which becomes 100%? This will be followed by the bankers issuing a neo-feudalism style of welfare to all citizens. Mark my words America, the 10% “tax” is just the starting point.
Selling the “Tax” As a Tax on the Rich
The ultimate “gold-digger”
The IMF has repackaged Lagarde’s recommendation for a 10% tax on all banking accounts and is recommending that all developed countries make up their debt load by “taxing the rich”. This is the same game, just a different name. This game of semantics is based upon the belief that the people of ordinary means will accept a 10% initial hit on their savings so long as the rich are sharing in the pain. Really? Since when have the rich ever shared in the burden for anything? Last year, Warren Buffet bragged that his secretary paid more tax than he does. The rich do not pay tax, they are allowed by the IRS to accept payment for their services in off-shore foreign banks that the IRS does not solicit information from. You and I do not have access to the same tax evasion schemes because it often takes a minimum of $30-50 million dollars to open such an account in places like the Cayman Islands. Therefore, when Lagarde’s IMF tells you that you are going to be taxed (i.e. 10% of your bank account stolen) at the same rate as the rich, do not believe Lagarde and the IMF because they are lying through their teeth.
The coming global tax will be instituted through the central bank of each nation. This means that in the US, the Federal Reserve Banks of Bank of America, Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase et al., will be impacted. This means that the tax-dodge banks used by the global elite in the Cayman Islands will be exempt from this “tax” because they are not under the direct authority of a central bank.
Ask yourself, when you have been standing in the teller lines at the Bank of America, how many times have you seen Bill Gates, David Rockefeller, Warren Buffet, George Soros and Donald Trump in the same teller line next to you? These banksters will not pay one dime in tribute to the IMF. This entire burden, just as it is with the tax system, will be paid by the middle class of each nation. The elite do not bank where you do.
Global Elite Finance As a Second Language
If you want to truly understand where this is headed, you must become fluent in the language of the global elite and the first prerequisite understanding that you must acquire is that no developed nation is taxing the rich to any significant degree. A nation can say they are taxing the rich and they can even pass laws which state that they are taxing the rich, but no nation is truly taxing the rich. If a nation was to decide to actually to tax the rich, the money of the rich, and their corporate assets, would leave that country so fast that your head would spin because the developed nations of the world are in a race to the bottom in terms of recruiting corporations to relocate to their country by offering corporations and their elite owners huge tax incentives while passing along the corporate and banking debt load to what’s left of the middle class. Therefore, what does tax the rich really mean?
The New Version of Taxing the Rich
The statement, taxing the rich means that the elite are going to introduce what appears to be a universal program which will, on the surface, appear to tax everyone the same in order to pay for the massive debt that is crushing every country on the planet, namely, the derivatives debt.
In the last section of the 10% tax requested, in the IMF report, on page 58, it states the following:
“The tax rates needed to bring down public debt to precrisis levels, moreover, are sizable: reducing debt ratios to end-2007 levels would require (for a sample of 15 euro area countries) a tax rate of about 10 percent on households with positive net wealth... Simulations show that maintaining the overall budget at a level consistent with the IMF staff’s medium-term advice would bring the average debt ratio to about 70 percent of GDP by 2030, although in a few countries it would remain above 80 percent. However, the large debt stock, the uncertain global environment, weak growth prospects, and the absence of well-specified medium-term adjustment plans in systemic economies like Japan and the United States complicate the task.“
The Expatriation Option
This above-mentioned IMF analysis tells you quite clearly that their “debt reduction” plan is coming to Japan and the United States. So, perhaps you will decide like record numbers of Americans have already done, that it is time to go to a country such as Costa Rica or Norway and take your money with you. While it is true that you might be able expatriate to one of these countries, taking the bulk of your money with you is going to be a fundamental problem.
JP Morgan Chase has announced that they are stopping international wire transfers from private accounts and are limiting account holders to less than $50,000 cash withdrawals. In the past couple of days, HSBC (America) has announced the same basic policies. I expect that within the next 30 days, the Bank of America and Wells Fargo will follow suit. This is clearly a move designed to prevent capital flight from the United States so that the bankers will have easy access to your funds. Let’s take a big picture view, shall we? There can be no other conclusion than this nation’s megabanks are locking up the money supply that they have control over in preparation of implementing the 10% “tax” on you money.
Even if you decide to give your money one small extra layer of protection and move it into a credit union, and then move your money out of the country, your efforts will largely fail. Because the $50,000 transfer prohibition applies to the transfer of your money to domestic banks as well. The banks are telling you that they own your money, and legally they are correct. Very soon, this expatriation option will disappear.
Your Bank Account Has No Protection
The FDIC has only about $25 billion in its deposit insurance fund, which is mandated by law to keep a balance equivalent to only 1.15% of insured deposits. If a banking collapse were to be on the near horizon, the banksters are not going to notify you because they would not want to incite a bank run. With only 1.15% of all deposits being insured by the FDIC, your money would be left vulnerable and only the elite would be warned as they quietly transfer their money to a safer haven. How do I know this? Because this is exactly what my research discovered on the money movements preceding the Gulf oil spill, as it ws revealed that on the morning of the explosion, Goldman Sachs issued a “put option for preferred insiders” in Transocean (the owner of the Deep Water Horizon oil rig) and the elite had their stock profit margin guaranteed while everyone else took a financial bath! This is the undeniable pattern of the global elite.
Additionally, your bank account has been collateralized against the derivatives debt. The bankruptcy reform laws stemming from the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 2005, derivatives counter-parties are given preference over all other creditors and customers of the bankrupt financial institution, including FDIC insured depositors. This gives what the experts call “super priority” in terms of the line of succession from which to collect bankruptcy monies. Bank of America has conspicuously co-mingled their derivatives debt with your savings account and as such they have every legal right use your money to cover their debt. Oh, they would never do that you say? I have bad news for the uninformed, they already have done that very thing. In the MF Global debacle, the reason that MF Global customers lost their segregated account funds was because the MF Global debt load was caused primarily because of their derivatives debt which, under bankruptcy laws, gave derivatives claimants super-priority in the bankruptcy proceedings. In short, you do not matter.
A Message to All Police State Surveillance Grid Employees
Hey NSA, while you are watching us, the IMF is watching your pensions and bank accounts.
To all of you in the NSA who are spying on Americans to determine who has been naughty or nice, your banks accounts and pensions will soon be gone as well. To all military and police, the same is true for you too. It does not make sense for any American to go along with this tyranny. Why would you people fight on the side of those who would rob you blind at the end of the day? Expatriate or Fight? The options are narrowing very quickly.
Tick, tick tick…..It is 5 seconds to midnight.

“Democracy means that if the doorbell rings in the early hours, it is likely to be the milkman.”—Winston Churchill
It’s 3 a.m. You’ve been asleep for hours when suddenly you hear a loud “Crash! Bang! Boom!” Based on the yelling, shouting and mayhem, it sounds as if someone—or several someones—are breaking through your front door. With your heart racing and your stomach churning, all you can think about is keeping your family safe from the intruders who have invaded your home. You have mere seconds before the intruders make their way to your bedroom. Desperate to protect your loved ones, you scramble to lay hold of something—anything—that you might use in self-defense. It might be a flashlight, your son’s baseball bat, or that still unloaded gun you thought you’d never need. In a matter of seconds, the intruders are at your bedroom door. You brace for the confrontation, a shaky grip on your weapon. In the moments before you go down for the count, shot multiple times by the strangers who have invaded your home, you get a good look at your accosters. It’s the police.
Before I go any further, let me start by saying this: the problem is not that all police are bad. The problem, as I point out in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, is that increasing numbers of police officers are badly trained, illiterate when it comes to the Constitution, especially the Fourth Amendment, and, in some cases, willfully ignorant about the fact that they are supposed to be peacekeepers working for us, the taxpayer.
Unfortunately, with every passing week, we are hearing more and more horror stories in which homeowners are injured or killed simply because they mistook a SWAT team raid by police for a home invasion by criminals. Never mind that the unsuspecting homeowner, woken from sleep by the sounds of a violent entry, has no way of distinguishing between a home invasion by a criminal as opposed to a government agent. Too often, the destruction of life and property wrought by the police is no less horrifying than that carried out by criminal invaders.
Consider, for example, the sad scenario that played out when a SWAT team kicked open the door of ex-Marine Jose Guerena’s home during a drug raid and opened fire. Thinking his home was being invaded by criminals, Guerena told his wife and child to hide in a closet, grabbed a gun and waited in the hallway to confront the intruders. He never fired his weapon. In fact, the safety was still on his gun when he was killed. The SWAT officers, however, not as restrained, fired 70 rounds of ammunition at Guerena—23 of those bullets made contact. Guerena had had no prior criminal record, and the police found nothing illegal in his home.
Seven-year-old Aiyana Jones was sleeping on her living room sofa, which was positioned under a window, when suddenly, the silence of the night was shattered by a flash grenade thrown through the living room window, followed by the sounds of police bursting into the apartment and a gun going off. Rushing into the room, Aiyana’s father, Charles, found himself tackled by police and forced to lie on the floor, his face in a pool of his daughter’s blood. It would be hours before Charles would be informed that his daughter was dead. The 34-year-old suspect the police had been looking for would later be found elsewhere in the apartment building.
Then there was the time police used a battering ram to break into the home of 92-year-old Kathryn Johnson, mistakenly believing her house to be a drug den. Fearing that burglars were entering her home, which was situated in a dangerous neighborhood, Johnson fired a warning shot when the door burst open. Police unleashed a hail of gunfire, hitting Johnson with six bullets. Johnson died.
Eighty-year-old Eugene Mallory suffered a similar fate when deputies with the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, claiming to have smelled chemicals related to the manufacture of methamphetamine, raided the multi-unit property in which Mallory lived. Thinking that his home was being invaded by burglars, Mallory allegedly raised a gun at the intruders, who shot him six times. Mallory died. “The lesson here,” observed the spokesman for the sheriff’s department, “is don’t pull a gun on a deputy.”
In Fort Worth, Texas, two rookie police officers sent to investigate a possible burglary circled 72-year-old Jerry Waller’s house with flashlights shining. Waller, concerned that his home was being cased, went to his garage, armed with a gun for self-defense. The two officers snuck up on Waller, who raised his gun on the intruders. When Waller failed to obey orders to lower his gun, the officers shot and killed him. It turned out the officers had gone to the wrong address. They blamed the shooting death on “poor lighting.”
During a raid in Ogden, Utah, police dressed in black and carrying assault rifles charged into a darkened home. Upon entering the hallway and encountering a man holding a shiny object that one officer thought was a sword, police opened fire. Three shots later, 45-year-old Todd Blair fell to the floor dead. In his hands was a shiny golf club.
In Sarasota, Florida, a mixture of federal and local police converged on the apartment complex where Louise Goldsberry lived after receiving a tip that a child rape suspect was in the complex. Unaware of police activity outside, Louise was washing dishes in her kitchen when a man wearing what appeared to be a hunting vest pointed a rifle at her through her window. Fearing that she was about to be attacked, Louise retrieved her revolver from her bedroom. Meanwhile, the man began pounding on Louise’s front door, saying, “We’re the f@#$ing police; open the f@#$ing door.” Identifying himself as a police officer, the rifle-wielding man then opened the door, pointed a gun at Goldsberry and her boyfriend, who was also present, and yelled, “Drop the f@#$ing gun or I’ll f@#$ing shoot you.” Ironically, the officer later justified his behavior on the grounds that he didn’t like having a gun pointed at him and because “I have to go home at night.”
These incidents underscore a dangerous mindset in which civilians (often unarmed and defenseless) not only have less rights than militarized police, but also one in which the safety of civilians is treated as a lower priority than the safety of their police counterparts (who are armed to the hilt with an array of lethal and nonlethal weapons), the privacy of civilians is negligible in the face of the government’s various missions, and the homes of civilians are no longer the refuge from government intrusion that they once were.
It wasn’t always this way, however. There was a time in America when a man’s home really was a sanctuary where he and his family could be safe and secure from the threat of invasion by government agents, who were held at bay by the dictates of the Fourth Amendment, which protects American citizens from unreasonable searches and seizures.
The Fourth Amendment, in turn, was added to the U.S. Constitution by colonists still smarting from the abuses they had been forced to endure while under British rule, among these home invasions by the military under the guise of writs of assistance. These writs were nothing less than open-ended royal documents which British soldiers used as a justification for barging into the homes of colonists and rifling through their belongings. James Otis, a renowned colonial attorney, “condemned writs of assistance because they were perpetual, universal (addressed to every officer and subject in the realm), and allowed anyone to conduct a search in violation of the essential principle of English liberty that a peaceable man’s house is his castle.” As Otis noted:
“Now, one of the most essential branches of English liberty is the freedom of one’s house. A man’s house is his castle; and whilst he is quiet, he is as well guarded as a prince in his castle. This writ, if it should be declared legal, would totally annihilate this privilege. Custom-house officers may enter our houses when they please; we are commanded to permit their entry. Their menial servants may enter, may break locks, bars, and everything in their way; and whether they break through malice or revenge, no man, no court can inquire. Bare suspicion without oath is sufficient.”
To our detriment, we have now come full circle, returning to a time before the American Revolution when government agents—with the blessing of the courts—could force their way into a citizen’s home, with seemingly little concern for lives lost and property damaged in the process.
Actually, we may be worse off today than our colonial ancestors when one considers the extent to which courts have sanctioned the use of no-knock raids by police SWAT teams (occurring at a rate of 70,000 to 80,000 a year and growing); the arsenal of lethal weapons available to local police agencies; the ease with which courts now dispense search warrants based often on little more than a suspicion of wrongdoing; and the inability of police to distinguish between reasonable suspicion and the higher standard of probable cause, the latter of which is required by the Constitution before any government official can search an individual or his property.
Indeed, if Winston Churchill is correct that “democracy means that if the doorbell rings in the early hours, it is likely to be the milkman,” then it’s safe to say that we no longer live in a democracy. Certainly not in a day and age when the Fourth Amendment, which was intended to protect us against the police state, especially home invasions by government agents, has been reduced to little more than words on paper.
At seventy three, is this what I have to look forward to? Will they kill my wife too? How about my little dog, too small to bite an ankle? It gripes my ass to think this is what American’s have accepted as protection. Protection from these goons is worse than being invaded by drug attics. And these scumbags call themselves Americans???? You should hear some of their excuses for this kind of behavior. Most of them want to be known by their pears as bad-ass killers, like it’s a badge of honor.

An excerpt from the book, Whatever Happened To America?
In 1917 Woodrow Wilson's Congress enacted the Trading With the Enemy Act to regulate—not forbid—trade with belligerent nations. The language of this piece of legislation defined precisely who was, and who was not, an enemy of the United States. Specifically excluded from that classification were the citizens of the United States. That was an oversight that would be corrected three days after Franklin D. Roosevelt assumed the mantle of the presidency on March 6, 1933.
During the first 100 days of Roosevelt's administration, Congress passed a litany of legislative programs ostensibly designed to stimulate the economy and send America back to work. Most of this legislation was expediently enacted with about as much congressional forethought as the Emergency Banking Relief Act. A great deal of it, like the Agricultural Adjustment Act, the National Industrial Recovery Act and the Congressional Gold Repeal Joint Resolution, violated the Constitution of the United States, and portions of those acts would be declared unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1935.
The first of three laws designed to wrest control of the United States away from the States and the people was engineered on May 9, 1933. This law, enacted without a single Congressman or Senator reading it and after only 40 minutes of debate in both houses of Congress, by both parties was the Emergency Banking Relief Act.
There were at least two reasons Roosevelt didn't want Congress looking too closely at the language of the Emergency Banking Relief Act. First, it restructured the banking system of the United States and placed even more monetary control in the hands of the central bankers. Second, it gave Roosevelt war powers control over the United States of America in peacetime. But most important, it changed the language of the Trading with the Enemy Act, effectively classifying the citizens of the United States as the enemies of their own central government. And, it did one other thing. It granted Roosevelt (or whomever would follow him into the White House) the right to redefine the ownership of private property in the United States.
Such redefinition was necessary since the war powers authority Roosevelt was being accorded to deal with the national emergency granted him the right to seize the property of those who failed to comply with the laws which were being enacted. The right to seize the property of American citizens without due process would be one of the paramount weapons the government would continue to use long after the emergency expired. It would be a much-used weapon by the Internal Revenue Service, which has not hesitated to seize any asset or property of any American citizen without due process since 1934. In the last few years, that right has also been assumed by State and federal police agencies who now seize the assets of drug dealers and those charged with violations of the RICO act at the time of arrest, not conviction. Gone forever is the presumption of innocence until guilt is proven beyond a reasonable doubt.
Municipalities do the same when they seize the vehicles driven by johns arrested for seeking the illicit pleasures of prostitutes in hundreds of sting operations launched each year by countless brigades of city and county police agencies throughout the country. All such laws, regardless of their deterrent qualities, and regardless if they are upheld by the courts, violate the Constitution of the United States because they deny the accused the right to due process before seizure takes place—an inalienable right they possess under the Constitution of the United States.
It is a troubling sign of our times that courts of law in America, regardless of the compelling interest of society to eradicate the proliferation of illegal drugs that are taking such a devastating toll on human life and dignity while breeding all other forms of crime from petty larceny to murder, would wantonly violate the Constitution of the United States under the guise of providing a safer and more secure America.
The redefinition of private property rights is found in Senate Document 43 that examined, and attempted to justify, the ramifications of the powers delegated to the President under the War Powers Act albeit after-the-fact. On page 9 of that document, the Senate brazenly declared: "The ultimate ownership of all property is in the State; individual so-called 'ownership' is only by virtue of the Government, i.e., law, amounting to mere user…" That particular facet of Document 43, further clarified by Senate Report 93-549, has become codified by precedent.
As the Senate began to examine exactly what powers they had granted the President by amending the Trading With the Enemy Act on March 9, 1933, they concluded that: "Under these powers the president may: seize property; organize and control the means of production; seize commodities; assign military forces abroad; institute martial law; seize and control all transportation and communication; regulate the operation of private industry; restrict travel, and in a plethora of particular ways, control the lives of all American citizens." (Senate Report 93-549.)
It is important to note that every dictatorship in the modern world has abrogated the rights of private ownership, seized property at will, organized and controlled all production within its society, seized and controlled the transportation infrastructure of the nation, nationalized communications to censor the free expression of opinion and restricted the movement of its citizens. This is usually done with an internal passport which the citizens of every authoritarian country are required to carry with them at all times. Whenever these steps are taken by any government, democracy dies a bittersweet death and totalitarianism is born in the ashes of lost freedom.
The Roosevelt brain trust, in paving the way for Roosevelt to implement his New Deal programs, privately acknowledged that most of the economic and social programs they were constructing even before Roosevelt assumed the White House would be legally problematic when viewed in the context of the constitutionality of a United States president's authority in peacetime. In times of war, the Constitution allows for the broadening of presidential powers by the Chief Executive to deal with extraneous, albeit temporary, emergencies that seriously threaten the security and welfare of the nation.
However, in 1933 America was not at war. It was a dilemma the brain trust would quickly solve by modifying the Trading With the Enemy Act of 1917 to include any national emergency. In doing so, it was also necessary to redefine the enemy since the extraneous authority granted the President under the terms of Public Law 91 was directed only at the enemies, and allies of the enemies, of the United States. A peacetime application of the Trading With the Enemy Act without some form of universal modification that would allow Roosevelt to apply the tenets of that law against the citizens of the United States would be meaningless.
Public Law 1, stemming from H.R. 1491, will long be remembered both as the bill nobody read and the legislation that gave the President of the United States dictatorial power over America. As Americans, many of us criticize those citizens who blindly vote for candidates based solely on their political affiliation without possessing any knowledge of the issues at stake in the election in which they are casting their ballots. Yet, in the Congress of the United States, on March 9, 1933, those we elected to represent us before the federal government of the United States did precisely that very thing themselves. Is it any wonder the electorate of America has a herd mentality?
What happened that day in 1933 is more terrifying than the stock market crash and the ensuing Depression combined. Clearly those we elected, and continue to elect, no longer represent the constituents who placed them in office and have not for several years. Most career politicians have been institutionalized and clearly represent only the interests of big government and the special interest groups that contribute massive amounts to keep them in office so they can manipulate the reins of government from behind the scenes in the name of the general public they are sworn to serve.
The special session of Congress that met on March 9, 1933 did so because the President of the United States called them to address a national emergency of such extraordinary proportions that it required extraordinary legislation to cope with the crisis. If that fact, in and of itself, was not a red flag (pardon the pun), the failure to read the legislation being considered for rushed passage (another red flag), or the preamble of the legislation itself should have been.
"Be it enacted by the Senate and the House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the Congress hereby declares that a serious emergency exists and that it is imperatively necessary speedily to put into effect remedies of uniform national application.
TITLE I. Section 1. The actions, regulations, rules, licenses, orders and proclamations heretofore or hereafter taken, promulgated, made, or issued by the President of the United States or the Secretary of the Treasury since March 4, 1933, pursuant to the authority conferred by subsection (b) of section 5 of the Act of October 6, 1917, as amended, are hereby approved and confirmed."
A very large red flag was being waved.
The Emergency Bill begins with an admission that the new President and his Treasury Secretary had already broken the law; and were now seeking not only retroactive exoneration for those deeds, but absolution from future infractions of the Constitution as well. Clearly, Roosevelt and Attorney General Homer Cummings did not want Congress scrutinizing the bill too closely because some of the very subtle textual changes they made in their revisions of the Act of October 6, 1917 might not stand up under the light of day.
Many Congressmen believed the only revisions were those found in Section 5(b) (italicized). "During time of waror during any other period of national emergency declared by the President, the President may, through any agency he may designate, or otherwise, investigate, regulate, or prohibit, under such rules and regulations as he may prescribe, by means of license or otherwise, any transactions in foreign exchange, transfers of credits between or payments by banking institutions as defined by the President, and export, hoarding, melting, or earmarking of gold or silver coin or bullion or currency, by any person within the United States or any place subject to the jurisdiction thereof…"
In fact, the Act of October 6, 1917 expressly forbade the President from interfering in banking transactions executed wholly within the United States. Furthermore, Public Law 91, Chapter 106, declares itself to be "An Act to define, regulate, and punish trading with the enemy, and for other purposes" none of which dealt with citizens of the United States, clearly defined by Section 2(c): "(c) Such other individuals, or body or class of individuals, as may be natives, citizens, or subjects of any nation with which the United States is at war, other than citizens of the United States…" Again, we see the same exclusion. As defined under the Act of October 6, 1917, American citizens were exempted from the classification of an "enemy." However, in the Roosevelt version, the only people under scrutiny for punitive action are American citizens or those who haplessly fall within the jurisdiction of the United States government. Roosevelt sought, and was granted by Congress, power to engage in an economic war against the people of the United States.
It may well be that the only use Roosevelt intended to make of the expanded war powers authority was to protect his Administration from any potential problems that could have arisen from assuming prerogatives he did not legally possess when he closed the banks over which he had no Constitutional authority. More likely than not, either he or his brain trust or both realized that his far-reaching socialist agenda to nationalize the industrial base of America would usurp not only the separation of powers between the executive, judicial and legislative branches of the federal government, but would create insurmountable sovereignty issues between the federal government and the States as well. Realizing that, possessing supra-wartime powers would weigh heavily in disputes with either the States or with Congress.
On September 14, 1976 Congress passed H.R. 3884, the National Emergencies Act (50 USC 1601), Public Law 94-412, to terminate the broad powers previously granted to the President. Exempted from the law were any and all actions taken before the bill became law; or, any fines, assessments or penalties due the government from those actions.
However, what Congress erased with one hand, it rewrote with the other. The only thing permanently taken from the President was autonomy. Section 201.(a) granted virtually the same powers to the Congress, which must now authorize the President to declare states of national emergencies that he could formerly do without their consent.
This slight of hand was important to Congress because it allows Congress, through a concurrent resolution, to terminate any state of emergency declared by the President. Retained, almost in its entirety, was the infamous Section 5(b) which classified the citizens of the United States as enemies of their government. The Trading With the Enemy Act has now been duly codified, and is now a permanent part of the U.S. Federal Code. And the American people have permanently been classified as enemies of their federal government.

“Economic martial law will be declared… restrictions will be set on the amounts, times and frequency of withdrawals.”Forecaster Gerald CelenteTrends Journal – Summer 2011
We hope you’re paying attention.
If there were ever a red flag warning about the economic and financial destruction to come, JP Morgan Chase Bank began flying it this morning.
In a shocking report from Infowars we learned that mega-behemoth Chase has issued letters to thousands of business customers indicating that they will no longer be allowing international wire transfers or cash deposits, withdrawals in excess of a $50,000 monthly cap.
Chase Bank confirmed to Infowars that all business account holders were being subjected to these new regulations. Given that even a relatively small grocery store or restaurant is likely to turnover more than $50k a month in cash payments, this appears to be part of a wider move to shut down businesses who mainly deal in cash.
When Mike Adams of Natural News received the same letter he contacted Chase Bank and was able to confirm the new policies.
According to Chase, “everything is fine,” and customers need not worry.
Their response was that these changes were being implemented “to better serve our customers.” They did not explain how blocking all international wire transfers would “better serve” their customers, however.
Chase Bank specifically denied any knowledge of problems with cash on hand, or government debt or any such issue. They basically downplayed the entire issue and had no answers for why capital controls were suddenly being put into place.
This is nothing short of a capital control, which is an economic strategy designed to limit the transfer of money. It is a strategy implemented only during times of economic or financial distress, most often as a precursor to wealth seizures by the state.
Be warned, Chase bank is the first of likely many banks to begin the lock-down of the financial wealth of private individuals in the United States of America.
The new restrictions are particularly ironic because JP Morgan Chase (along with other large banking conglomerates) is a primary shareholder, and thus owner, of the Federal Reserve, which has been responsible for sending trillions of freshly printed dollars outside of the country over the last several years.
There is absolutely no legitimate reason for why one of the world’s biggest banks just restricted the outward flow of cash from domestic businesses to their international contacts, especially considering that we are repeatedly told we live in a globalized world where we need to learn to work with our foreign partners.
It makes no sense.
Unless, of course, you stop to consider that the United States is and has been on the brink of collapse, literally, for nearly a decade. This was first confirmed in January of 2011 in a letter to Congress by then Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner when he spoke of the U.S. debt ceiling.
Even a very short-term or limited default would have catastrophic economic consequences that would last for decades.
Most recently, the U.S. Treasury Department reiterated the seriousness of any misstep in our trillion-dollar debt spending:
In the event that a debt limit impasse were to lead to a default, it could have a catastrophic effect on not just financial markets but also on job creation, consumer spending and economic growth
Think about the recent USDA letter to state food stamp directors, in which they noted that lack of funding would lead to a complete freeze on Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program distributions to millions of people. Within 24 hours of such a move the entire country from coast-to-coast would be awash in rioting, looting and violence.
This is how close we are.
As we noted, Congress and the President “saved” us yet again in the 11th hour. But we are only pushing out the timeline on the inevitable.
The government knows this – as evidenced by the warnings of the Treasury Department.
The mega-banks know this as well.
And several years ago trend forecaster Gerald Celente warned that this is exactly how it would happen and it would come on the heels of a rogue terror attack that may involve direct targeting of the U.S. populace through violence, or cyber attacks that attack our banking system or take down the U.S. power grid:
Bank holidays will be called, the US and other fragile economies will crumble, gold and silver will soar, and already-troubled currencies will crash. Economic martial law will be declared. Introduced as a temporary measure, once in place it will remain in place (like the curfews and draconian security precautions installed by despots and dictators everywhere). Civil rights will be suspended and, particularly in America, Homeland Security, already intolerably intrusive, will achieve an Orwellian omnipresence.
With banks closed and economic martial law in place, restrictions will be set on the amounts, times and frequency of withdrawals. As we have cautioned before, it will be essential to have a stash of cash on hand. Even though governments will devalue their currencies, it will happen in stages.
Piece by piece, day by day, intrusion after intrusion, the end game should be coming into focus.
Take the following warning from Mike Adams seriously because ignoring it will have severe consequences for you and yours.
This is happening, folks! The capital controls begin on November 17th. The bank runs may follow soon thereafter. Chase Bank is now admitting that you cannot use your own money that you’ve deposited there.
This is clearly stemming from a government policy that is requiring banks to prevent cash from leaving the United States. Such policies are only put into place when a huge financial default event is expected.
It may not happen tomorrow, or next month, or next year. But the consumer paradigm in which we live, the relative peace and stability we experience… it will all come crashing down.
The time to insulate yourself is right here and now.
They are preparing for what they know is coming.
You should be too.
Yes, I’m aware this is about business accounts, and not private checking and savings accounts, but this is exactly how the Bankers operate. They cut little pieces out of your freedom one at a time until you have bled to death. Consider the history of Government/Banker relationships and their past actions before you go back to sleep. One day you will wake up with an empty account, with no recourse available. American’s must stop being apathetic and begin being proactive in securing their assets from future tyranny. Why wait for them to steal you blind?

By Dave Hodges
The United States is quickly descending down the path of serfdom in a 21st century application of modern day feudalism. This is a two part series which briefly traces the rapid decent of what once was the most dynamic and wealthiest empire in the history of the planet, to a country which will soon be labeled as a Third World country. These times are marked by the elite moving to own everything and using the power of the government to accomplish their end-game.
Descent Into Communitarianism
A new strategy has appeared in America which threatens to make a real live serf out of nearly every American citizen. The main emphasis of this attack is the ongoing conversion to Communitarian law and a dramatic departure from our time honored Constitutional law. There are ten steps to implement on the way to your enslavement and incarceration into a feudal society.
The erosion of these liberties is not the result of a series of random, unconstitutional acts by a set of power-hungry globalist minions. Instead, the new and emerging system of American justice is bringing forth a sweeping set of reforms which is quickly ending our noble experiment with inalienable, individual liberties. This new system of justice, being visited upon shores, is called Communitarian law and it represents the antithesis of Constitutional law as it champions community interests at the expense of individual liberties. Terms like social justice, sustainability, smart growth, collectivism and sacrificing for the greater good represent some of the buzz words and phrases of Communitarian law.
Americans have come to expect that our individual liberties are granted by God, not by man or by government. We also believe, as Thomas Jefferson wrote, that these rights are inalienable and may not be taken away by government. The United States Constitution prevents not only the implementation of tyrannical practices against it citizens, it also prohibits the will of the majority from abusing the civil liberties of the minority.
Sadly, the United States Constitution is on life support and the patient is nearing the end. So where is this leading the country?
The Landmark Event of the Kelo Supreme Court Case
The Supreme Court case of Kelo v. The City of New London, CT. (2005) usurped America’s Fifth Amendment rights with regard to property rights. Government can now seize your property, and for the first time, award your property to a private entity who is presumably a cohort (i.e. benefactor) of someone in government. Some Americans are decrying these acts as unconstitutional. These Americans are correct. However, all of these acts are legal under the Communitarian system of justice because the intent is based on what is in the common good and not on what is constitutionally legal. And who gets to decide what is in the common, or the communist good? That would be the people bringing you Communitarian law, the global elite. Don’t forget the old axiom of the Golden Rule. He who has the gold, makes the rules. In the modern day application of this old saying states that he who prints the money gets to steal your home.
Our abandonment of the U.S. Constitution in favor of Communitarian law allows the Federal Reserve, through QE3, to purchase $40 billion of mortgage based securities and will continue to purchase $40 billion worth of mortgaged properties each and every month until they own every single piece of real estate in the country. This process began on September 13, 2012 and will continue until all privately owned properties are held by the money changers.
At the present rate, it will not be long until private home ownership will become a rare event.
On the way to the new serfdom in America, a new house stealing strategy has emerged over the past several months. With many homeowners presently underwater, the five megabanks are conducting reappraisals and billing the difference between the loan amount and the current appraised value of the house. When the homeowner cannot find the cash to pay the difference, usually within a 30 day window, the bank forecloses. With the commonality of this practice which victimizes financially distressed Americans, scarcely a word of this has been reported in the corporate controlled media. This process, once stalled, has begun again with a vengeance and this aspect of the MERS fraud is rapidly increasing with breakneck speed.
If the bail out money from QE1 and QE2 had been applied to the totality of America’s home commercial mortgages, every home and business mortgage would have been paid off in full. Instead, the bail out money went to crooked bankers who broke the law in perpetuating the crises in the first place through the Ponzi scheme of the derivatives, which sent our home values plummeting.
The bailouts set the stage for the Federal Reserve to accomplish its two goals of seizing all private property in American and collapsing the dollar as a prelude to the roll out of a new global currency. The bail-outs were the beginning of the end for America and marked the historical shift of the American citizen being transformed into a serf living on the feudal manor.
Welcome to the new Americana feudal manor and you and I are the serfs. Maybe this is why Homeland Security purchased 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition and 2700 armored personnel carriers, over the past year. This was necessary because even the globalists realize that even the most dumbed down American might think that fighting for their home is worth taking on the corrupt federal government.
Feudalism In Ten Easy Steps
Take your pill, we are going for a ride.
When one steps back and looks at the brilliant strategy concocted by the global elite, one can only marvel at their cleverness. First, Wall Street Banksters play the reckless derivative debt game and collapses the world’s economy with a domestic American debt of 1.5 Quadrillion debt. Second, home values dramatically dropped and foreclosures reached record levels. Third, the banks begin seizing underwater properties with money printed out of thin air by the Federal Reserve. Fourth, the economy eventually collapses from printing 40 billion dollars of mortgage backed securities every single month. Fifth, global currency and global government is ushered in. Sixth, Obama will soon move to adopt the UN gun ban, which will leave the emerging American serf totally defenseless and the government will uses the newly purchased 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition on the dissenters. Seventh, with Americans out of their homes, they can be forced into the new stack and pack cities complete with their 200-500 square foot Agenda 21 style micro-apartments. Eighth, Americans will be subject to forced vaccines and real depopulation will begin in earnest. Nine, one child limits will be placed on families, and tenth the 10% who survive this vicious depopulation transition will live in humanities darkest days in a hellish nightmare that even George Orwell could not have foreseen. And the overarching overlay will consist of the government operating under the brutal authority of the NDAA and Executive Order 13603.
And this is just the tip of the iceberg. When one steps back and takes a macro view of the rapidly unfolding events, one can see the final bankster attack upon the resources and civil liberties of the country which will sweep across the country with devastating effectiveness. This will be the subject of Part two.

Those who bank with JP Morgan Chase are nuts to keep their deposits there. And so the unwinding of the banking system begins (publicly – it began privately long ago). Marilyn Barnewall
By Mike Adams,
(NaturalNews) I admit that when I saw today's breaking news on InfoWars.com about Chase Bank limiting cash withdrawals and banning international wire transfers, I was skeptical. Many readers didn't believe it, either. So just to check it out, I called my own accounting team to ask if we had received a similar letter from Chase, announcing that no international wire transfers would be allowed after Nov. 17th.
Sure enough, we were sent the same letter! I've posted a JPG image of the letter below so you can read it for yourself.
Or Click here to see the hi-res scan of this letter. This is the letter that we received directly from Chase. This is not secondhand information.
The letter clearly states that beginning November 17:
• All international wire transfers will be disallowed.
• All cash activity, including cash withdrawals and deposits, will be halted at "$50,000 per statement cycle." How are businesses who deal with a lot of cash (such as restaurants) supposed to function under such restrictions?
Chase Bank representatives told Natural News "everything is fine"
We called and spoke with Chase Bank to ask why these capital controls were being implemented on November 17th.
Their response was that these changes were being implemented "to better serve our customers." They did not explain how blocking all international wire transfers would "better serve" their customers, however.
Chase Bank specifically denied any knowledge of problems with cash on hand, or government debt or any such issue. They basically downplayed the entire issue and had no answers for why capital controls were suddenly being put into place.
Dropping the hammer on capital controls
This is the beginning of the capital controls we've been warning about for years. Throughout history, when governments are on the brink of financial default, they begin limiting capital controls in exactly the way we are seeing here.
Following that, governments typically seize government pension funds, meaning the outright theft of pensions for cops, government workers, etc., is probably just around the corner.
Finally, the last act of desperation by governments facing financial default is to seize private funds from banks, Cyprus-style. The precedent for this has already been set in Cyprus, and when that happened, I was among many who openly predicted it would spread to the United States.
This is happening, folks! The capital controls begin on November 17th. The bank runs may follow soon thereafter. Chase Bank is now admitting that you cannot use your own money that you've deposited there.
This is clearly stemming from a government policy that is requiring banks to prevent cash from leaving the United States. Such policies are only put into place when a huge financial default event is expected.
More updates to follow. Stay tuned to Natural News for intelligent analysis of why this is happening. We are already receiving word that this may have something to do with the "Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act" and we are looking into it further.
Here's the letter we received:
Watch and see if this does not spread to all banks and credit unions before the end of 2013. Please wake up to the fact that, WE DO NOT HAVE ANY PROTECTION FROM OUR GOVERNMENT AND THEY ONLY WORK FOR THE INTERNATIONAL INVESTMENT BANKING CARTEL, and you can take THAT to the bank! AMERICA IS GOING BELLY UP within months, AND WE CANNOT STOP IT. Send this notice to all your contacts. CONVERT YOUR LIQUID ASSETS TO GOLD AND SLVER NOW! And always remember, if you can’t touch it, you don’t own it.

The gold market was slammed shortly before the start of the “theatrical release“of the Federal Government “shutdown”.
Historically, government shutdowns have been associated with negative financial news. Governments having to shut down due to financial reasons are generally considered to be in financial stress.
Negative financial news has historically been a time when gold and silver prices rise due to uncertainty. Gold and silver have long been safe havens against financial calamity including falling currency values, falling bond prices and even rising interest rates, as gold and silver store wealth against borrowing costs.
A quick survey of the last 17 government shutdowns going back to 1976, especially those lasting more than 3 days, we see gold prices never fell during any of those shutdowns. The longest running shutdown was from December 5th, 1995 through January 6, 1996, and during that period gold rose from $386 per ounce to $409 per ounce, a rise of nearly 6%.
The current government shutdown comes during a time period when American debt has never been higher. The Obama administration beginning in 2008 has added more debt to the Federal balance sheet than all other Presidents, from George Washington to George H. W. Bush combined, a staggering $4.2 Trillion dollars.
The issue of debt is not about total dollar amount, but about interest payments which must either be taxed in existence or borrowed into existence. By the end of the Obama Presidency, the total debt is likely to be close to $17 trillion, and over $6 trillion added during his two terms, which is as much as the total US Debt at the start of 2002.
The terms of the Federal Reserve Act (1913) did not include demands for repayment of paper money loans made to the Department of the Treasury, (the Constitutional United States Treasury having been ended by law in 1921), but specified interest payments were to be made only in gold, and after the gold was gone the United States declared bankruptcy. Bankruptcy was declared on the carefully chosen date of March 9, 1933. (Interesting numerology 3-9-33 or 333-333 ==666!) After 1933, all property and all potential income of all persons born thereafter was hypothecated to the non Federal no Reserve private banking cartel, but this is another story.
Interest payments are the primary benefit of banker pretended debt script, except, when the game’s gone too long. In the end, interest payments finally cause the destruction of debt script, as interest rates rise exponentially until no amount of script can satisfy the demands for more interest.
A primary concern of banker debt script managers is interest rates; keeping rates as low as possible is of the highest priority, especially when total debt ‘crosses the Rubicon’ where interest payments on debt already created, significantly affect future interest payments as previous payments are borrowed into existence. The United States Federal Reserve has crossed the Rubicon, and rising interest rates will signal the coming end of the FRN private debt-based script.
Over the past several years, it has been noted that the gold, silver, platinum, and palladium have exhibited price behaviors consistent with being managed prices. Prices of gold and silver, especially, have been manipulated; both to keep the purchasing power of the dollar from falling quickly and to keep prices of US bond products high, resulting in unnaturally low and stable interest rates.
Contrary to reality-based, un-coerced, markets, where gold and silver, and other precious metals, rise as a currency is being over printed, the US Fed and complicit banks and brokerage houses have conspired to cause monetary metals to fall in prices, even as debt levels rise to all time highs more than doubling since 2002.
Rising interest rates are a sign that banker pretend debt script exists in far greater quantities than products to purchase in a market. Rising quantities of script mean more money available to purchase non increasing numbers of goods. As more money demands product, but production fails to rise, prices rise signaling shortages, as extra money supply attempts to purchase more product. Rising interest rates reduce demand for money and shrink the money supply as loans are paid off, and fewer new loans are sold.
However, when a banker pretend debt script is being borrowed into existence to meet the demands of pure spending, with no connection to products in the market, bankers and co-conspirators must manipulate interest rates lower to prevent catastrophic rises in interest payments. The end result is rising interest payments that soon become unstable because any rise in interest rates will soon fully destroy the financial system's ability to make payments on all non fixed rate debt.
Gold and silver prices are being deliberately and criminally destroyed by bankers hoping to keep the financial system alive a little longer as the wealth of the economy is transferred to bankers in the form of interest payments. Keeping the financial system functioning while manipulating gold and silver prices (and other schemes, such as interest rate derivative attached to bond purchases) is a madmans scheme – soon to end with the full destruction of the bond market and dramatic collapse of dollar purchasing power.
During the “shutdown” of the government, done for political purposes including forcing Obamacare to be funded and to act as a distraction or excuse for a coming interest rate calamity, gold and silver prices have been forced lower and lower to keep interest rates stable.
Lowering prices of gold and silver is equivalent to boosting the value of the dollar and simultaneously strengthening face value of government debt. Rising dollar purchasing power is equivalent to an increase in interest rates, as bond holders receiving payments in dollars realize an increase in purchasing power. Rising or stable exchange values for the dollar keep money in dollars – rather than safe havens such as gold and silver. Destroying the price of gold and silver to maintain purchasing power of the dollar, moves money from investments in gold and silver to government debt, which rises in value relative to gold, and silver.
As can be seen from the chart above, gold prices were being forced down in May as the 10-year yield (interest rate) on Treasury notes began rising, signaling an on-coming debt-interest rate calamity and the collapse of the US Bond prices. Metal prices were frantically slammed to slow the rise in interest rates on approximately June 17, 2013.
Slamming the price of gold helped slow the rate of increase in the 10-year yield temporarily, preventing an interest rate crisis. Note again, after October 1st, interest rates stopped falling and started climbing, and, again, a gold smack down was engineered beginning in the second week.
The price of gold and silver are being pushed lower at great cost. In order to engineer the sell down, naked short selling and flash trading are being used, both of which are causing the depletion of physical gold and silver, as prices encourage foreigners and individual investors to continue buying gold and silver at significant discounts.
As the physical supply is being reduced and prices are falling below production costs of the metals, the physical supply will soon dwindle forcing rising prices, regardless of the paper traded value of gold and silver.
In the very near future, the physical shortage of gold and silver will lead to default in the commodities market exchanges (comex and other metals exchanges) creating a crisis in metals delivery and, for a short time, making gold and silver unavailable at any price.
At the same time when gold and silver prices rise exponentially and the metals exchanges default, bond prices will fall like a rock triggering financial system destroying interests rates.
The only protection bond holders and dollar holders have is to sell both before interest rates begin to rise. Since owning Federal Debt is the same as buying into a Ponzi scheme, only those that sell early will see any of their money returned.
Buying gold and, preferably, silver and other safe assets is the only hope to save your wealth. Time before collapse is not long – please hurry.

“In individuals insanity is rare; but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.” ~Nietzsche
Anyone who has read any of my previous articles on this subject or has known me for over 15 minutes will find themselves aghast that I would ever endorse anything like the subject of this rant. But, we must admit, there exists in this country a group of people who are responsible for untold theft on a grand scale, violence and murder in the streets and otherwise rampant lawlessness. I believe the proposals listed below will go a long way in addressing this pressing problem.
My proposals for 10 new common sense gun control laws to curb this insanity are listed below. While these laws are by no means comprehensive, they will serve as a new beginning for restoring our individual, creator granted rights and curbing some of the violence and lawlessness which is rampant in the streets of the majority of large cities and even the remote countryside in our once great Republic.
1. Any politician, at any level of government, who has ever proposed, endorsed or voted for the denial of the right of any law-abiding individual to own any firearm deemed necessary for the protection of themselves, their families, loved ones or just innocent strangers, shall henceforth be denied the right to own any firearm for any purpose whatsoever, for life.
2. Any politician who meets the above criteria shall henceforth be denied the right to employ, contract or order any private party, organization or company to defend their lives or safety while at any time being in possession of a firearm said politician has at any time proposed be denied to others.
3. Any politician, bureaucrat or other government employee who now or has ever advocated the disarming of otherwise peaceful citizens, shall never be provided at taxpayer expense, any form of protection, by any means, from any government or private enterprise using firearms or weapons which at any time have been denied to others.
4. Any politician who has been proved to have violated their sacred oath to our Constitution and Bill of Rights shall be subject to a lifetime ban prohibiting the ownership of any firearm or explosive device.
5. Any politician or government employee who has openly advocated or signed any resolution which authorizes the waging of unconstitutional war on any person, country, or military strategy (terrorism) shall be deemed unfit for any type of firearms ownership for life.
6. A database of all politicians, bureaucrats, government employees and others who have met any of the conditions above shall be maintained and no person in that group will be allowed any calls or requests for armed protection from any public or private law enforcement organization. This would include any 911 calls.
7. Any member of the Mainstream Media (MSM) who, using any medium whatsoever to advocate for the disarming of peaceful citizens shall be subject to the above restrictions relative to ownership or possession of firearms and/or explosives.
8. Any member of law enforcement, at any level, who has ever violated the constitutional rights of ANY individual, at any time, in any manner, shall from that point forward be denied the ownership or possession of any firearm or other defensive weapon for life and shall be immediately terminated from any position financed with taxpayer dollars.
9. Any judge who has ever ruled against the constitutional rights of an individual shall be immediately dismissed from their taxpayer supported job and denied ownership of any firearm or defensive weapon for life. In addition, no public or private entity shall provide security for said former judges or their families.
10. Any Prosecutor, District Attorney or other officer of the court who has ever prosecuted any person, under any law, which is in direct violation of our Constitution and Bill of Rights, shall forfeit all rights to firearms ownership for life any also be denied the armed protection of any public or private enterprise.
Common sense would dictate that any individual, group or government who in any way uses a position of power or influence to deny the sacred right of an individual to possess the necessary means to protect themselves, their loved ones, other individuals and their personal property from unlawful, unprovoked, violent attacks, should themselves be denied the rights they seek to take from others.
Gun control is permissible, even desirable, when tyrants are the intended target.

Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act."

A retired Constitutional lawyer has read the entire proposed health care bill. Read his conclusions and pass this on as you wish. This is stunning!
The Truth About the Health Care Bills – Michael Connelly, Ret. Constitutional Attorney
Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009. I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional.
What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected.
To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.
The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business, and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government.
However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.
The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own.
The irony is that the Congress doesn't have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care.
This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, of all of your personal healthcare direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.
If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However , that doesn't work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law.
So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law. It doesn't stop there though.
The 9th Amendment that provides: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people;
The 10th Amendment states: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control.
I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights. Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to "be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution." If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable.
For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

Dr. Bill H. Weld’s Intelligence Report
If you know how to read technical indicator charts, you will have noticed a dead cross developing on the dollar. There is huge resistance around current levels. The 200 day average is extremely bearish. The hedge funds know this and want out, the charts show us they are selling into strength. This also applies to the SP-500 and DOW all bearish indicators are being shown. The computer bots control the systems and the bots will drive the dollar down over the coming days.
The market is on the verge of an all out correction.
October crash is in the making. Left shoulder in place with the head now complete. You watch the Dow start to break down today and into next week. Out right short.
According to one calculation, the number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the combined populations of “Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.”
If you started paying off just the new debt that the U.S. has accumulated during the Obama administration at the rate of one dollar per second, it would take more than 184,000 years to pay it off.
Back in 1985, our trade deficit with China was approximately 6 million dollars (million with a little “m”) for the entire year. In 2012, our trade deficit with China was 315 billion dollars. That was the largest trade deficit that one nation has had with another nation in the history of the world.
AMERICA IS BANKRUPT. IF AMERICA WAS A HUMAN WITH THIS MUCH BAD DEBT, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN MADE BANKRUPT YEARS AGO.
I REST MY CASE:
The following are 40 statistics about the fall of the U.S. economy that are almost too crazy to believe…
#1 Back in 1980, the U.S. national debt was less than one trillion dollars. Today, it is rapidly approaching 17 trillion dollars…
[CHART is AT THE LINK]
#2 During Obama’s first term, the federal government accumulated more debt than it did under the first 42 U.S presidents combined.
#3 The U.S. national debt is now more than 23 times larger than it was when Jimmy Carter became president.
#4 If you started paying off just the new debt that the U.S. has accumulated during the Obama administration at the rate of one dollar per second, it would take more than 184,000 years to pay it off.
#5 The federal government is stealing more than 100 million dollars from our children and our grandchildren every single hour of every single day.
#6 Back in 1970, the total amount of debt in the United States (government debt + business debt + consumer debt, etc.) was less than 2 trillion dollars. Today it is over 56 trillion dollars…
[CHART is at the link]
#7 According to the World Bank, U.S. GDP accounted for 31.8 percent of all global economic activity in 2001. That number dropped to 21.6 percent in 2011
.#8 The United States has fallen in the global economic competitiveness rankings compiled by the World Economic Forum for four years in a row.
#9 According to The Economist, the United States was the best place in the world to be born into back in 1988. Today, the United States is only tied for 16th place.
#10 Incredibly, more than 56,000 manufacturing facilities in the United States have been permanently shut down since 2001.
#11 There are less Americans working in manufacturing today than there was in 1950 even though the population of the country has more than doubled since then.
#12 According to the New York Times, there are now approximately 70,000 abandoned buildings in Detroit.
#13 When NAFTA was pushed through Congress in 1993, the United States had a trade surplus with Mexico of 1.6 billion dollars. By 2010, we had a trade deficit with Mexico of 61.6 billion dollars.
#14 Back in 1985, our trade deficit with China was approximately 6million dollars (million with a little “m”) for the entire year. In 2012, our trade deficit with China was 315 billion dollars. That was the largest trade deficit that one nation has had with another nation in the history of the world.
#15 Overall, the United States has run a trade deficit of more than 8 trillion dollars with the rest of the world since 1975.
#16 According to the Economic Policy Institute, the United States is losing half a million jobs to China every single year.
#17 Back in 1950, more than 80 percent of all men in the United States had jobs. Today, less than 65 percent of all men in the United States have jobs.
#18 At this point, an astounding 53 percent of all American workers make less than $30,000 a year.
#19 Small business is rapidly dying in America. At this point, only about 7 percent of all non-farm workers in the United States are self-employed. That is an all-time record low.
#20 Back in 1983, the bottom 95 percent of all income earners in the United States had 62 cents of debt for every dollar that they earned. By 2007, that figure had soared to $1.48.
#21 In the United States today, the wealthiest one percent of all Americans have a greater net worth than the bottom 90 percent combined.
#22 According to Forbes, the 400 wealthiest Americans have more wealth than the bottom 150 million Americans combined.
#23 The six heirs of Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton have as much wealth as the bottom one-third of all Americans combined.
#24 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 146 million Americans are either “poor” or “low income”.
#25 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 49 percent of all Americans live in a home that receives direct monetary benefits from the federal government. Back in 1983, less than a third of all Americans lived in a home that received direct monetary benefits from the federal government.
#26 Overall, the federal government runs nearly 80 different “means-tested welfare programs”, and at this point more than 100 million Americans are enrolled in at least one of them.
#27 Back in 1965, only one out of every 50 Americans was on Medicaid. Today, one out of every 6 Americans is on Medicaid, and things are about to get a whole lot worse. It is being projected that Obamacare will add 16 million more Americans to the Medicaid rolls.
#28 As I wrote recently, it is being projected that the number of Americans on Medicare will grow from 50.7 million in 2012 to 73.2 million in 2025.
#29 At this point, Medicare is facing unfunded liabilities of more than 38 trillion dollars over the next 75 years. That comes to approximately$328,404 for every single household in the United States.
#30 Right now, there are approximately 56 million Americans collecting Social Security benefits. By 2035, that number is projected to soar to an astounding 91 million.
#31 Overall, the Social Security system is facing a 134 trillion dollar shortfall over the next 75 years.
#32 Today, the number of Americans on Social Security Disability now exceeds the entire population of Greece, and the number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the entire population of Spain.
#33 According to a report recently issued by the Pew Research Center, on average Americans over the age of 65 have 47 times as much wealth as Americans under the age of 35.
#34 U.S. families that have a head of household that is under the age of 30 have a poverty rate of 37 percent.
#35 As I mentioned recently, the homeownership rate in America is now at its lowest level in nearly 18 years.
#36 There are now 20.2 million Americans that spend more than half of their incomes on housing. That represents a 46 percent increase from 2001.
#37 45 percent of all children are living in poverty in Miami, more than 50 percent of all children are living in poverty in Cleveland, and about 60 percent of all children are living in poverty in Detroit.
#38 Today, more than a million public school students in the United States are homeless. This is the first time that has ever happened in our history.
#39 When Barack Obama first entered the White House, about 32 million Americans were on food stamps. Now, more than 47 million Americans are on food stamps.
#40 According to one calculation, the number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the combined populations of “Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.”

There is an all-out effort to demonize gun owners in the United States today. Those that own guns are repeatedly portrayed as being uneducated, mentally deficient racists in the mainstream media. No evidence is ever produced to actually back up those claims. Gun owners regularly make lists of “potential terrorists” in official government documents, and many government officials openly regard them as ultra-paranoid “conspiracy nuts” that are a serious threat to national security.
Of course the truth is that gun owners are actually among the most law-abiding and patriotic people in the entire nation, but that doesn’t really fit with the radical gun control agenda of the progressive elite. In order to move their agenda forward, they must make gun owners look bad, and they will go to ridiculous extremes in order to achieve that goal. And to a certain extent, it is working. As you will see below, some large financial companies no longer want to conduct business with gun owners, and just the sight of a gun is enough to get people freaking out and calling the police in many communities in America today.
Never underestimate the power of propaganda. Just think about it – pretty much the only time that advocates for gun owner organizations are invited to appear on the mainstream media is when the big news organizations think that they can make them look bad. Other than a few token appearances by pro-gun advocates, most of the time it is a relentless flood of anti-gun messages on the mainstream news.
And often the anti-gun messages that Americans are being fed are absolutely absurd. In fact, they would be absolutely hilarious if so many people were not taking them so seriously.
For example, Michael Moore actually believes that the reason why so many “white people” want to own guns is because they are “afraid of black people”…
“It’s because too many white people are afraid of black people. Period. The vast majority of the guns in the U.S. are sold to white people who live in the suburbs or the country. When we fantasize about being mugged or home invaded, what’s the image of the perpetrator in our heads? Is it the freckled-face kid from down the street – or is it someone who is, if not black, at least poor?”
And Chris Matthews is apparently convinced that most gun owners are virulent racists that hate Barack Obama just because he has dark skin…
I have to tell you this. I see a far bigger fight than over background checks and gun shows. It’s culture war. They don’t accept an African-American president or president of color who has some antecedence in Africa. No. It has to be us or him. And our guns or him. And everything is totemic; everything is iconic; everything’s fighting words.
It is easy to laugh at such bizarre comments, but millions of people actually take these jokers seriously, and they are having an impact.
Just recently, the owner of one of the largest gun stores in America, Hyatt Gun Shop, was informed by his credit card processor (Authorize.net) that he had violated their service agreement and they no longer wanted his business.
So what did Hyatt Gun Shop do wrong?
Well, they sold guns.
Yes, I know that this sounds crazy, but this is actually happening. The following is the text of the actual email that Larry Hyatt received…
Dear Hyatt Gun Shop Inc,
Authorize.Net LLC (“Authorize.Net”) has determined that the nature of your business constitutes a violation of Section 2.xiv of the Authorize.Net Acceptable Use Guidelines and Sections 3.3 and 11.3 of the Authorize.Net Service Agreement (the “Agreement”).
These sections include, but are not limited to, the sale of firearms or any similar product.
Accordingly, pursuant to Section 4 of the Acceptable Use Guidelines, your ability to access and use the Authorize.Net Services will be terminated on September 30, 2013.
And in case you are tempted to think that this is not a big deal, it should also be noted that Authorize.net is a fully-owned subsidiary of Visa USA.
Are big financial companies such as Visa going to start simply refusing to do business with anyone that sells guns?
If you believe that this could never happen, just check out what the owner of American Spirit Arms said about his dealings with Bank of America on Facebook…
My name is Joe Sirochman owner of American Spirit Arms and I wanted to share my recent experience with Bank of America (which we have been doing business with for over 10 years)…. Everyone is familiar with the latest increase in guns sales, dealers selling out of inventory, Manufacturers back logged for months, large revenue all generated in the last two weeks …. American Spirit Arms is no exception to the overwhelming demand. What we have experienced is that our web site orders have jumped 500% causing our web site E commerce processing larger Deposits to BANK OF AMERICA ..Well, this through up a huge RED Flag with Bank of America . So they decided to hold the deposits for further review, meaning that the orders/payments that were coming in through the web, (being paid by the customer and that were shipped out by American Spirit Arms), the BANK was keeping (UNDER REVIEW )..as you could imagine this made me furious…After countless hours on the phone with BANK OF AMERICA I finally got a Manager in the right department that told me the reason that the deposits were on hold for FURTHER REVIEW …HER EXACT WORDS WERE ….. “WE BELIEVE YOU SHOULD NOT BE SELLING GUNS and PARTS ON THE INTERNET”
But of course it is not just financial companies that are demonizing gun owners.
Some more examples of this phenomenon were cited in a commentary authored by Dr. Michael S. Brown…
In San Clemente, California, a school groundskeeper who had won a large sexual harassment settlement from the local school district was the target of a dramatic SWAT team raid on his residence. He was held on one million dollars bail for the heinous crime of possessing allegedly stolen rakes and buckets. Someone, perhaps seeking revenge, tipped off the police that the man had a large gun collection.
News reports contained no mention of the man making threats or plotting violence; he simply owned guns. A school district administrator was quoted as saying, “I’m personally horrified that someone who has daily contact in the vicinity of children and teachers owned the arsenal he apparently had.” Other officials crowed that they had prevented another Columbine. It is unlikely that the man will receive justice in a culture that vilifies gun owning citizens in this manner.
At a large university in Seattle, a white collar employee with an excellent work record was involved in a minor dispute over computer access. When he was called into the administrator’s office to discuss it, two campus police officers were present. “We know you have a concealed weapons permit. Are you armed?” He was not, but the damage to his reputation had already been done. Apparently, a coworker who was competing with the man for a position had tipped off the administration that he was a gun owner.
We are rapidly getting to the point where being a gun owner in America will automatically make you an outcast.
And progressive strategists don’t plan on letting up. In fact, it was recently revealed that they have drafted an 80 page “how-to manual” that actually encourages gun control advocates to emotionally exploit major shooting incidents to advance the cause of gun control…
Democratic strategists have drafted a how-to manual on manipulating the public’s emotions toward gun control in the aftermath of a major shooting.
“A high-profile gun-violence incident temporarily draws more people into the conversation about gun violence,” asserts the guide. “We should rely on emotionally powerful language, feelings and images to bring home the terrible impact of gun violence.”
The 80-page document titled “Preventing Gun Violence Through Effective Messaging,” also urges gun-control advocates use images of frightening-looking guns and shooting scenes to make their point.
“The most powerful time to communicate is when concern and emotions are running at their peak,” the guide insists. “The debate over gun violence in America is periodically punctuated by high-profile gun violence incidents including Columbine, Virginia Tech, Tucson, the Trayvon Martin killing, Aurora and Oak Creek. When an incident such as these attracts sustained media attention, it creates a unique climate for our communications efforts.”
If you would like to read the entire manual, you can find it right here.
And of course Barack Obama continues to issue more executive orders about guns almost every time a major shooting incident makes the news.
But with conservatives in charge of the U.S. House of Representatives, he knows that there is a limit on what he will be able to do for now.
So the Obama administration has been busy pushing the new international treaty on arms regulation that it hopes will advance the cause of gun control. Fortunately, many gun owner organizations are deeply concerned about this and they are sounding the alarm. The following is from a recent Fox News article about this new treaty…
But the treaty also advocates keeping data of arms purchases, which the NRA and other groups say could be used as an international log to keep tabs on gun owners.
The record-keeping section in the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) encourages members to “maintain records of conventional arms covered under Article 2,” which include battle tanks, armored combat vehicles, large-caliber artillery systems, warships and small arms and light weapons.
Further, those records should be kept for a minimum of 10 years, the treaty states — which NRA leader Wayne LaPierre has referred to as “nothing more than gun registration by a different name.”
Because the treaty’s language is so broad, LaPierre has said that “manufacturers of civilian shotguns would have to comply with the same regulatory process as a manufacturer of military attack helicopters.”
One thing is for sure – the attacks from the progressives on gun owners are not going to stop.
It does not matter to them that a study that was recently published in the Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy discovered that nations that have more guns tend to have less crime.
It does not matter to them that approximately 200,000 women in the United States use guns to protect themselves against sexual crime every single year.
Apparently what those women are supposed to do is be sexually assaulted first and then call the police for help.
That sounds absolutely insane, but that is the world that the progressives want us to live in.
Let us hope that they do not win.

In part one of this series, I documented how the banks are positioning for an economic crash by securing as many hard assets as possible. Whether it be your home that is stolen through MERS fraud, or your secure brokerage account which is stolen by Jon Corzine and MF Global, or if it is an unjust court ruling which allows the banks the legal right to steal your bank deposits, nobody’s private property is safe from confiscation.
Policing for Fun and Profit
The practice discussed in this article is called civil asset forfeiture and is often referred to as "policing for profit." It involves every aspect of law enforcement from the local police to federal authorities. Civil asset forfeiture laws permit the authorities the legal right to actually steal your private assets. No, these laws are not the RICO laws in which convicted drug dealers and money launderers forfeit their private property obtained in the commission of organized criminal activity. Civil asset forfeiture allows law enforcement the “legal right” to steal your assets even when you have not been convicted or even when you have not been accused of a crime. The practice makes potential thugs and thieves out of every law enforcement official who dons a badge.
No judge will ever rule that this practice is unconstitutional, which it clearly is, because the judge gets to go to conferences (i.e. vacations), can eat at for free at expensive restaurants, drive a county vehicle for free, attend football games for free and generally enjoy the perks that any common thief gets to enjoy as a result of sharing in the spoils of this unconstitutional activity.
In many jurisdictions, the money has been used to fund the re-election campaign of a local District Attorney. In Georgia, civil asset forfeiture money was used to purchase expensive football tickets for local officials. The money can also be used to pay for salaries, elaborate and expensive equipment and other perks not necessarily related to law enforcement.
The practice of civil asset forfeiture has corrupted our entire legal process and this practice is best summarized in the following the video.
When salaries and perks are on the line, rogue cops have a strong incentive to increase the seizures, as evidenced by an increase in the regularity and size of such seizures in recent years. Asset forfeiture practices often go hand-in-hand with racial profiling; and, according to the ACLU, can seriously impact low-income African-American or Hispanic people in which local police can exercise their law enforcement discretion and decide who “looks suspicious” and for whom the arduous and expensive process of trying to get one’s property back is an expensive challenge.
Victimizing Minorities for Fun and Profit
Beginning in 2006, the police in Tenaha, Texas would randomly stop, search, and would steal private property from Blacks and Hispanics traveling through the town even though there was no suspicion of criminal activity.
Typically, the police shakedown would consist of threatening travelers that if they did not turn over their cash and other identified valuables, they would be arrested on money laundering charges and have their children taken by Child Protective Services. If they turned over the cash, they would be let go. Most people would simply turn over their money. Some people actually tried to recover their money, but found they needed to hire lawyers and prove their innocence in front a judge who was profiting from the seizures, a process that was too expensive and not practical for many.
Several individuals affected by this practice joined a class-action lawsuit against Tenaha and several city and county officials, challenging these illegal stops and seizures. The ACLU joined the case, Morrow v. City of Teneha, et al., in July 2012. In August 2012, the ACLU settled a class action suit against officials in Tenaha and Shelby Counties.
James Morrow was arrested and spent the night in jail as he was traveling through Tenaha, TX. Police seized nearly $4,000 in cash and threatened to prosecute him for money laundering if he did not forfeit his money. To get out of jail, he agreed to forfeit his cash and he was let go. Morrow eventually got his money back but had to pay over $3,500 in attorney fees to recover his money. Morrow and dozens of other victims contacted the ACLU. It was estimated that as much as $3 million dollars was stolen by local officials from innocent motorists between 2006 and 2008 in over 140 cases. Morrow and dozens of others were made whole over five years later.
The examples are infuriating. An elderly couple in Philadelphia had their home seized after their son allegedly sold $20 worth of grass on the front porch. A church secretary in Virginia had $28,500 in church donations confiscated by the highway patrol because he was caught speeding.
In Tennessee, along Interstate 40, the police are shaking down out of state motorists and stealing their cash and property at rates that dwarf the proven criminality of Tenaha, TX. NewsChannel 5 in Nashville, Tennessee created the following video which clearly demonstrates how police use “civil asset forfeiture” laws to steal money from unsuspecting motorists. Please note how the Deputy District Attorney admits that her jurisdiction makes money from this process. Also make note of how a local Tennessee police chief admits that if officers do not seize “enough” cash, they could lose their jobs.
Under civil forfeiture laws, the government does not have to report how cases of individual theft that they engage in, nor are they required to report the amount of money stolen from individual citizens. Citizens don’t have to be found guilty to forfeit their assets. It is a very large loophole that law enforcement agencies are more than happy to exploit to the tune of $4.2 billion annually.
There are some common sense practices that motorists can follow in an attempt to minimize the damage. First, if you are dealing with a federal law enforcement agency, invoke your Fifth Amendment right to not answer any questions. If you make the mistake of speaking to the federal officials, they can accuse you of lying (your word vs. their word) and you can do time for this offense. Additionally, advise the officials that you are not speaking to them without an attorney present and when they mock you and ask you why, hold to your right to remain silent. When they ask you for permission to search your vehicle, tell them to get a warrant and that you are insisting on having an attorney present if they have any suspicion that you have broken any laws. They will belittle you and threaten you for not cooperating, but do not back down. If you are polite, professional, yet firm and appear to know your rights, the cops might move on to an easier, less constitutionally aware person. Also, if at all possible, film the entire encounter. And for goodness sake, try to not travel with very much cash on you, particularly if you traveling out of state, because as you have seen, the local police mafia is lying in wait.
We live in a time when banks, brokerages and the government can “legally” steal from you without following due process of law. We live in a country with no rules. Might makes right and you have about as much civil liberty as a person walking the streets of Somalia.
I used to respect all police officers, but it is difficult to not hold the entire profession in contempt, because they are the mobile tax collectors for the Sheriff of Nottingham. Claiming to be understaffed, they often refuse to respond to calls for help, but they are “Johnny-on-the-spot” when it comes to stealing your property. First the banks, now the police mafia.
Nobody knows exactly how many citizens are actually victimized by this highway robbery. Estimates place the number of victims at over 100,000 cases per year. Let’s be clear, this practice is a clear violation of the Fourth and Fifth Amendments to the United States Constitution. I almost forgot to mention that every one of these actions by the police are consistent with a nation that is under martial law.

The Common Sense Show features a wide variety of important topics that range from the loss of constitutional liberties, to the subsequent implementation of a police state under world governance, to exploring the limits of human potential. The primary purpose of The Common Sense Show is to provide Americans with the tools necessary to reclaim both our individual and national sovereignty.
This is not the first article on this subject I have found, but like the previous one’s, I simply cannot say anything in publically acceptable language. It make’s me want to puke to think of my friends in law enforcement doing these things. They should quit their job, and find worthy employment.

Many of us have childhood memories of things we did. We have both good and bad memories of things we wish we’d never done. Perhaps you got in trouble at school, engaged in a fist fight, or broke something. But what if you were held legally responsible for every childhood error you ever made? How difficult of a life that would be? For many of us, as we grew older we learned that kids make mistakes and mistakes are part of the growing up and learning process.
As children, many of us had parents or a guardian that enforced some level of rules and demanded certain responsibilities of us. Perhaps we looked up to someone as a parent, guardian, or a mentor. But what if everything our parents, guardians, or mentors did in the privacy of home was legally monitored by big government?
We later observed that these childhood experiences made us who we are today. But what if a personal, family, and home life learning experience is no longer legal? What if your life was being scripted for you so that you no longer enjoy the natural surroundings of a family home life?
Most Americans even today have appreciated a home life that is distinct from their work, school or other aspects of your life; a place that offers a sense of security, familiarity, comfort and above all a sense of privacy from the outside world. This sense of privacy and sense of safety from the outside world is a safety net that every animal on the planet seems to need. Home is your place of dwelling, wherever it is. In fact, one dictionary definition of ‘home’ reads: ‘a place in which one’s domestic affections are centered’. Having and maintaining a home is part of our fundamental survival. It also provides humans with a sense of orientation and reference. For this reason we are careful who we invite into our home, and conversely we are more likely to invite only those we trust and care about. But what if government invited themselves into your private home to enforce rules on you at home to control and monitor home activity?
Reflecting back again on your earlier years and glancing back at all the mistakes you made, you may consider how each childhood mistake taught you a lesson in life. You may be thinking about what advice you would have for those who face similar situations. But what if all those memories were replaced by a lifetime of being watched by government instead. A government whose job it is to document home incidences, and use them in a future analysis to determined your ‘home grade’.
As the years have passed, you may have realized the importance of a strong family/home network in personal mental, emotional, and spiritual development. Perhaps if you were raised in a conservative environment or if you had more liberal yet conscientious, spiritual and respectful parents you may have been taught Honor and respect your parent’. You probably thought as a kid, why not? After all, your parents brought you into this world, isn’t that worth some kind of respect? This all seemed to make sense then.
That was then; however, this is now. Enter our current system; a system in which the concept of parents is slowly being phased out. The parental position is being portrayed as a position that, though you may occupy it now, like a job or a license however, government is planning on ‘removing’ the position from the parents … by taking away their children. If parents fall into a category deemed appropriate for parent-child separation, government plans on using this as a tool to ‘remove’ your children. There are many individuals working toward a global agenda who want to replace parents as the primary guardian of children and they want to replace them with government. Yes government as the primary determinant of the child’s welfare. What we are seeing is the dark shadow of tyranny rising in slow motion on America. We are all now seeing systematically and methodically, exactly how and what tyranny and fascism is really all about. The war against parents and children is just beginning to warm up.
In the country which has promoted freedom, the American way, the American Dream, and the land of opportunity for so long; the same country who mastered the art of self-promotion and self-righteousness is now having to face the harsh reality that we are now clearly staring down the barrel of tyranny and fascism. The empire is employing aRed Dawn scenario on the unaware. On the surface the perpetrators lie and tell you they come in peace. On paper, however, they are moving as fast as they can to control every form of human activity. First they came to break the family, next they will come to take the family.
Amongst the many agendas, there is now a focused effort by our government to legalize kidnapping of our kids by creating a plethora of backdoors to quietly create government records, documentation, recommendations and applicable penalties of your day-to-day, parent-to-child home activities. Even though we know what it takes to thrive as a human being, big government is working overtime to put out the flames of freedom, stifle the focus and self-advancement that thriving consists of, and instead control all human behavior.
The tools being used? Redefining what constitutes neglect, a complete undermining of all parental rights and a complete takeover by government of your ‘home sweet home’ private life. Federal agencies like Health and Human Services (HHS), and Child Protection Services (CPS) are working together to formulate things like the ‘official’ definitions of ‘neglect’, what constitutes a child being at ‘high risk’, and what requires government ‘intervention’. I had to read this MANUAL for myself after coming across other articles on the topic. To truly understand what this takeover is all about one must consider things like the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare), Agenda 21, the climate religion, forced vaccinations, GMOs, depopulation, ‘sustainable’ cities, gun control, the militarization of police, DHS bullet buying madness, and many more things including the enormous amount of legislation in just the last few years collectively designed to take away all of your rights; you couldn’t script this any more predictable and one sided.
Additionally, agencies like the FBI are promoting the terrorizing of Internet downloading. This is an obvious attempt to not only censor the Internet but to treat 12-year-old little Johnny in Somewhere, USA as a ‘terrorist’ for downloading content on the Internet without permission. This act alone may offer multiple avenues by which government can come pick up (or remove, kidnap, transfer, gain custody of etc.) little Johnny for various reasons including ‘terrorism’, ‘neglect’, or other reasons which may require “intervention” from a federal agency. This intervention will require a ‘decision’ to be made by a ‘professional’ who will use the HHS/CPS ‘manual’ as a ‘guideline’. You get the picture.
With the global government agenda in full swing, it is very important for every single American to realize the legislation is being passed at super highway speed. These lightning-speed legislation is for one purpose and one purpose only, and that is to give big government complete unchallenged power over all human activity.
Let’s remember that those committed to the global government plans are determined to see this nightmare through. History unfortunately has proven repeatedly that the only possible end result of big unchallenged tyrannical governments is death and destruction.
What we are seeing is the implementation of Agenda 21 and U.N. global government control plans over humanity in real-time. This is not about America or about freedom and it certainly is not about thriving. Let us thrive and come above the lies. Let’s reach as high as we can to be the amazing living beings we were meant to be. We may not know all that we were meant to be, but we know what we were not. We were not meant to be mindless slaves who live in fear, hoping a collectivist governmental system will keep us alive in their own controlled and engineered manner.
Big government is clearly knocking on the door of your personal life, will you let them in? What will it take for more people to wake up? Will it really take a season or an era of missing and disappeared children? Will it take big government coming to arrest mom or dad over something that happens at home? Is this what Obama’s promise for an army of civilians bigger than our military is all about? Who are these children who will serve in Obama’s army? The signs are all around us and there is no time to wait. For America, end times are here. The time is now to expose these slow moving but progressing agendas. Get active and take a stand for freedom before it’s too late.

Bernie has concluded that the way to defeat the New World Order is to truly be the change that you want to see. Manifesting the solution and putting truth into action is the very thing that will defeat the globalists.
Ladies and gentlemen, this may well be the most important article you have ever read! Please read it carefully and often. Research the claims being made and learn what it is that really makes me so furious. Do not think that I enjoy being a curmudgeon without reason. The fact’s are simple, American’s have been brainwashed for generations to believe in government as the protector of humanity, and nothing could be farther from the truth. Government is a tool that the horrible animals in the International Investment Banking Cartel use to implement their passion for global control of everything. They use the media industry to form your world view starting from birth, and it’s been working as planned for over a hundred years. Individualism is very close to being outlawed completely, and is already socially unacceptable. They use governments as enforcers. It is way past time for every person to accept the challenge, and get informed, then teach. Otherwise humanity is doomed to become slaves to the elites.

The assault on the U.S. Constitution and the Second Amendment continues.
This time big business is getting into the mix and they’re aiming for gun stores right at the source of their revenues – their transaction processing facilities.
According to Larry Hyatt, owner of the largest gun brokerage firm in the United States, Authorize.net, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Visa USA and one of the world’s largest credit card processing gateways, has terminated their relationship with the firm.
After four years in business with the Visa owned Authorize.net, Larry Hyatt, owner of Hyatt Gun Shop, received an email indicating that the company would no longer provide its services due to “the sale of firearms or any similar product.”
The email reads:
Dear Hyatt Gun Shop Inc,
Authorize.Net LLC (“Authorize.Net”) has determined that the nature of your business constitutes a violation of Section 2.xiv of the Authorize.Net Acceptable Use Guidelines and Sections 3.3 and 11.3 of the Authorize.Net Service Agreement (the “Agreement”).
These sections include, but are not limited to, the sale of firearms or any similar product.
Accordingly, pursuant to Section 4 of the Acceptable Use Guidelines, your ability to access and use the Authorize.Net Services will be terminated on September 30, 2013.
Hyatt’s massive online store will be unable to process credit card transactions, giving the store only a few days to find a new processing company before Authorize.net terminates their business relationship.
“We’ve never seen anything like this,” Hyatt Marketing Director Justin Anderson told the Washington Examiner.
All of a sudden, after four years of doing business together, Authorize.net declares that Hyatt Gun Shop is in violation of their terms of agreement.
An odd coincidence to be sure, but not if you consider that many top executives at Visa have donated to President Obama’s election campaigns. With President Obama renewing his push for gun control in the wake of the Navy Yard shooting last week, and Americans ardently opposing any legislative action that would further restrict the ownership of firearms, it looks as if anti-gun politicians are now calling in favors with their connections in big business.
If you can’t outlaw the guns, then strike directly at the companies who manufacture them and sell them by cutting off their cash flow.
This is exactly what Authorize.net, which processes credit card transactions for millions of merchants around the world, has done to Hyatt.
Earlier this year, after a similar anti-gun push following the Sandy Hook elementary school tragedy, Bank of America took it upon themselves to forcibly seize funds from licensed firearms dealer and manufacturer American Spirit Arms.
The incidents with Hyatt Gun Shop and American Spirit Arms are certainly not isolated and will likely continue as government and business merge their agendas, especially as it pertains to our government sponsored banking system, which has a stranglehold over American businesses.
The Constitution remains a prominent roadblock for the anti-gun establishment, and despite efforts to ban semi-automatic rifles, tax ammunition, and restrict importation of magazines and gun parts, they are being countered at every turn by the tens of millions of Americans who believe in their personal right to bear arms.
Thus, government is now relying on their incestuous relationships with the many bailed out banks and businesses who are essentially under their control.
If you think this was an accident, you’re kidding yourself.
A coordinated effort is underway to make it difficult, if not impossible, to acquire self defense armaments that include guns, ammo, and accessories.
Get ‘em while you can. We saw what happened with the ammunition. Now it seems they are trying to lock-down our ability to do business with legitimate gun dealers.

The Internet has been awash of late with articles, analysis and YouTube clips all examining the warnings put forth by South Dakota S.R. and State Sen. Sheldon R. Songstad (1971-1978 and 1985-1988)1. Google ‘FEMA Region III alert’ and page after page of articles, news clips and releases, etc. pop up for viewing. It has become my habit, (being so illuminated by the events of Aurora, Sandy Hook, Boston, 911, and even the recent Navy yard shooting) to automatically look for falsities.
I’ve chewed on all this news regarding the FEMA III alert and must confess I swallowed it wholesale along with so many others, as evidenced by the sheer number of pieces devoted to the subject in the alternative media: that is, until this morning, when I experienced an ‘ah-hah’ moment. All the attention this alert is garnering is starting to smell – there is definitely something ‘rotten in Denmark’. As I’ve mentioned before, here, one must always examine the premise for everything. (Thank you, Ayn Rand). In checking the premise for this news release, critical analysis is required to discern the truth. When YouTube, Google, a politician and Donald Trump all blow the same horn, the note is usually off key.
Let us address the origin of the announcement itself. Ostensibly, it originated from Sheldon R. Songstad, a retired state representative and senator from South Dakota. He has been out of state politics for twenty-five years. One could ask, “How did he come up with all this information?” In digging a little further, it turns out the actual news itself originated from one David Eelles on 07.17.2013. 2. Mr. Eelles runs two websites. One is a gloom and doom site called Americas Last Days and the other is an ‘end of days’ religious site, here. There are several articles and clips regarding Mr. Eelles that can best be summarized by one of them, called “Prophet for Profit?”
To the alert itself, which on the surface is highly alarming and, dare I say, panic inducing (at least for people in Region III). A quick recitation of the various threads ‘put together’ by Songstad/Eelles are as follows:
15,000 Russians in Baltimore by October 1st.
82% of our combat forces and their supply elements out of CONUS by October 1st.
FEMA purchase orders for over $14.2 million for MREs and heater meals delivered to Region III by October 1st.
FEMA purchase orders for 22 million pouches of emergency water delivered to region III by October 1st.
FEMA purchase orders for $13.6 million for MREs and heater meals delivered to Austin by October 1st.
Nine-week training course for UN Peacekeepers in CONUS to learn Urban Warfare, English, and US weapons systems beginning 4th week of July for 386,000 troops to be completed by October 1st.
$11 million in antibiotics delivered to FEMA region III by October 1st ordered by CDC.
World Health Organization held second emergency meeting in its history to discuss MERs coronavirus. Determined a vaccine MUST be in place by October 1st.
2800 MRAPs delivered to DHS by October 1st. (Military urban assault vehicles).
No leave allowed for US military from September 28th thru November 5th.
NORCOMM yearly training for civil unrest suspended until September 27th. To be performed in northeast coastal areas.
Date for release of QE3 report moved to October 16th.
All DHS agents MUST qualify with sidearm, shotgun, and AR 15 by September 28th.
Sporadic testing of GPS and Communications satellites is coordinated for the first time with a testing date of September 29th.
POTUS mandates to FEMA and DHS concerning support for metropolitan communities dealing with the extreme climate change MUST be complete by October 1st.
Over 300 school systems in the US have determined they need three-day kits for each school AND three-day kits for each student to take with them. All deliveries scheduled for the month of September.
All National Guard units will complete riot control and disaster assistance training during this year’s annual two week training. All units MUST have their training complete by September 30th.
Daily testing of the Emergency Broadcast System beginning on 09.25.2013 -10.02.2013.
Eastern-based Coast Guard units to perform massive group training usually performed in the Gulf, in the Virginia and Delaware areas. This is a 10-day training mission to begin September 26th.
Wow! Scary stuff! One wonders how a retired state politician and an ‘end of days’ minister sourced, collated and postulated all this information, much of which is internal military and FEMA directives not readily available to the general public. One must also question how this search and source operation could have breathed life? What impelled them to look at military and FEMA directives to begin with? I submit the information was made available to them from TPTB. In keeping with the globalists M.O., in all likelihood, both Eelles and Songstad are unwitting disinfo agents, thoroughly believing they ‘stumbled’ onto critical information the public needs to be aware of. The alternative media then took the horse and ran with it. Off to the races! Another national disinformation campaign is up and running! (Rubbing of hands and evil chuckles follow).
Another ‘tell’ in this game is the amount of coverage and the persons endorsing this bit of news. As stated there are endless pages and clips devoted to the fear mongering alert. Donald Trump did an interview with Greta Van Susteren (a well-known globalist media shrill) on 08.13.2013 for “On the Record,” a show aired on a network owned by one of the ‘Big Five’ media conglomerates. In the interview he stated:
You have to have great leadership, and if the leadership isn't going to come to fore, it's going to be a big problem. And I'll tell you what. Come later on, September 30th, (emphasis added) you could have a real disaster in this country.
Don’t these clowns realize we are onto them? Another indicator is that the main piece was posted on Ron Paul’s website, here. 3. Some of the video clips (of which there are a great many) contain disembodied voices, as if the speaker was fearful of identification of such ‘underground’ or ‘subversive’ news.
A logical question to ask is how do ‘they’ know we are about to have a disaster? The scope for the disaster has been narrowed down, thankfully, to “an actual natural or unnatural disaster. It may be weather related or environmental or a plague or an epidemic. We do not know those details.” 3. The government is mobilizing and many millions of dollars are being spent on the strength of this ‘specific’ information. The clip on YouTube that supposedly clarifies this information has been “removed by the user.” Please keep in mind; the perps have been at this game for centuries. By removing the clip, it leaves one speculating (they hope) that the information must be correct, else why would it have been removed? After all, we all know the evil government would not want this ‘out there’, right? So sorry, globalists, but you need a new playbook. Perhaps there is another chapter to Sun Tzu’s "The Art of War"? Maybe “Sun Tzu- Part Deux”? Like Robert Johnson’s thirtieth song? You need it! We see through the charades, I am pleased to inform you.
What is coming our way in Region III? There is a great deal of speculation. Here are some of them:
A military attack on the US eastern seaboard, here.
The ‘tribulation’; here is another one.
The return of Nibiru, and/or our second sun, perhaps? Here
Let’s not forget aliens; that would be inconsiderate.
A dwarf star and seven planets reentering our solar system are coming!
Don’t forget a monster meteor!
The illuminati are at it again, those rascals.
And of course, there is the possibility of a plague or epidemic of unknown origin, as well as either a weather or environmentally related disaster. So many scenarios – so little time! I think I’ll just tag each one on a small piece of paper and break out my donkey and a dart. But, as seems to be the case these days, bumbling incompetence by the government seems to be norm (here, here and here) rather than the exception. This time is no different. “The retired Senator’s national preparedness research (emphasis added) was sparked by a comment Donald Trump made during a recent appearance on Fox News’ “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.” 4. Wait a minute! Is this the same airing that took place on August 13th? (Uh…yes). How can this be? This information was already posted on-line on July 28th?! 5. As stated, something is rotten in Denmark.
So…we have arrived at the nexus. All that’s left to address is why this has come to light and what is to be gained by the parties initiating the dissemination of this knowledge. We know this FEMA alert is not being touted as a drill. It has all the hallmarks of a genuine (heheh, hahah) alert. The sheer amount of data presented for public knowledge does indeed point to something happening in that region (more in a moment on this) between September, October, and November. It is my belief that the actual training and requisitions are genuine. I feel the need to qualify that statement because as much as I disbelieve the government on many things, in this instance I find that for them, the truth serves a purpose. If a lie would serve better, then I believe they would lie. Morality, (of lack thereof) is of no more concern to the globalist than a ship is to an iceberg.
When we read the news on this alert for primarily October, and essentially beginning on October 1st (15 of the 19 orders take place on or within five days of October 1st) in and for FEMA Region III, our minds automatically make two assumptions. The first assumption is that the alert is going to ‘kick off’ on October 1st, or damn near. The second is that the alert is for Region III only, and the rest of the country will remain unaffected. It is only our assumptions that give these pronouncements any weight. Simply because October 1st is stated does not mean it is necessarily so. All that is implied is that these items need to be on site or completed or in the midst of being implemented by October 1st, not that they will be needed by October 1st. Additionally, we, by virtue of repeated assimilation (of Region III, Region III, Region III), discount anything happening to the rest of the country.
Question time – if something were to happen to the entire country…something terrible that could and would result in a disruption of the food supply chain, fresh water, and, oh, I don’t know…electricity, maybe?…who would want to be prepared for that? Washington D.C. perhaps? See FEMA Region III map here. As we know, there is an anti-terrorist drill coming up (we all know how well those work out! Boston baked beans, anyone?) called GridEx 2013, on November 13th. A homebrewed (not a criticism…this article is homebrewed), but concise overview is here. (And thank you, Global Divisions). There has been a great deal of conjecture that this terrorist training exercise will end up like so many before it…a real event. If that happens, and the entire country is plunged into darkness, well, I’m sure the globalist minions spawning this event don’t want to get caught up in it, do they? I can just picture those lunkheads trying to formulate a plan to get their butts covered for food and water, disease immunizations (the real ones, not the mercury laden shots they give our children) and other necessities for an extended power outage. But hey, they know it won’t last forever – this won’t be like the show “Revolution” where the lights go out for good. It will only last long enough for people to riot, for starvation to set in and the attendant violence and societal breakdown to manifest.
It has also been suggested TPTB will take this opportunity to upgrade their mind control systems in place for decades…everything at some point needs an overhaul, and as technology has grown exponentially, one can assume they wish to implement the next generation of mind control via’ television and ‘smart’ appliances, meters etc. But ultimately, and what I feel the end game is for this plan, is to (from their standpoint) finally have a justifiable reason to declare martial law. I don’t think it’s a coincidence this ‘alert’ includes Washington DC. If one knows hell is coming down the pipe, would one not take steps to ensure the basics of survival are covered? Of course, as this is a terrorist drill, when the lights don’t come back on, it is the terrorists that are responsible. Greta Van Susteren, “How did they do it? Authorities are investigating…remain clam…” (If we had power, of course…chuckles) Concisely, I posit this entire FEMA Region III alert is the cover to get supplies shipped in and plenty of muscle on hand to swat the trouble makers without any questions as to why they are doing it. If you supply the ‘why’ before the masses ask why, then it goes off without a hitch. (Thanks, Mr. Songstad…you’ve played your part…back to the front porch.)
That is the cake – here is the icing. By making such a huge affair of this alert, then letting the anticipated calamity date pass by with nothing happening, it deflates the argument of psy-op events. You know and I know that Sandy Hook was a psy-op, but 200 million don’t. Of those 200 million, there may be seventy-five million sitting on the fence undecided. When October passes calmly, those fence sitters will get back in the pasture with the rest of the sheep. It’s win-win for the globalists, with the end result being martial law.
Do I have it all wrong? Perhaps. Do I hope I’m wrong? Of course! If I’m right about nothing happening with the FEMA III alert, and right about GridEx 2013, then millions will die due to an extended power failure and all the hell that comes with such an event. If I’m wrong and the FEMA III alert is genuine and correct, then there will be a major disaster in the eastern US, though short of it being an outer-space threat we are not privy to, it would have to be a staged psy-op, else how would they know in advance? The best case scenario of course, is that I am completely wrong on both hypotheses and I wasted six hours of my life writing this piece; a price I would willingly pay for a failed analysis.
Any way you look at it, this whole scenario is just more evidence of the sophisticated manipulation of the people by the elites. If this event is a false propaganda champagne, what is the objective other than creating fear and distrust in the people? Rather than wasting my time on speculation, here is what I have believed from the get go. The most deadly result of propaganda is confusion, and the more people are confused, the more they are divided, which has been their objective for many years. Division is dilution, and a diluted enemy is sure to be a weak enemy. That’s us folks, one great big bunch of diluted, angry, frustrated, disillusioned fools. Success is already obtained, and all the bastards need now is anything that will cause us to panic, and that will give them the excuse to kill enough of us to put the rest permanently asleep, and obedient. Self preservation is the cowards justification for surrender. What ever happens, I’m going down fighting. Do as you must.

The high priests of academic and “official” history love a good villain for two reasons: First, because good official villains make the struggles and accomplishments of good official heroes even more awe-inspiring. And, second, because nothing teaches (or propagandizes) the masses more thoroughly than the social or political lessons inherent in the documented rise and fall of the world's most despicable inhabitants.
We get shivers of fear and excitement when we discuss the evils and the follies of ancient monsters like Nero, Attila the Hun, Caligula, etc, or more modern monsters, like Mussolini, Stalin Hitler, Goebbels, Mao, Pol Pot, Idi Amin, and so on. We take solace in the idea that “we are nothing like them”, and our nation has “moved beyond” such animalistic behavior.
But even more fascinating popcorn-style history is found not in the destruction of tyrants, but the destruction of empires.
When an entire culture steps off the edge of the abyss into the realm of societal psychosis, the world often changes forever and in ways that, at least on the surface, seem to bring humanity a little closer together. The fall of Rome led to the eventual rise of a dominant Catholic theocracy and the rulership of royal blood lineage that lasted for centuries in Europe. The flames of World War I and the destabilization of the Kaiser's Germany led to the formation of the League Of Nations; a first attempt at a global governing authority designed to “maintain world peace”. World War II and the fall of the Third Reich resulted in considerable horrors, which the establishment of the United Nations was supposedly meant to prevent from ever occurring again. The decline of the British Empire saw the implosion of cultural colonialism, and the rise of corporate colonialism, which centralized immense power into the hands of the banking class as the new official oligarchs of our modern era. The collapse of the Berlin Wall and the abandonment of the Soviet Union was lauded by then U.S. President George Bush as the beginnings of a “New World Order” – an ideological concept which heralds the final deterioration of the idea of economic and political sovereignty as a mainstay of human civilization.
When examining the approved version of historical conflict, one gets the overwhelming impression that the villains of our past, through their hubris, their greed, and their insanity, seem to inspire a sudden surge of unification as their ashes are cleared from the air. One might even come to believe that the “natural progression” of conflict is leading us towards a future in which the only solution is the dissolution of all boundaries and the adoption of a one world narrative. Wouldn't it be glorious if the deaths of these malevolent tyrants and societies finally inspired the birth of a single human system in which no conflict is possible because we are all on the same side?
Perhaps it would be glorious, if you have adopted the childish notions of history common to the mainstream. For those who have not, the story, and the ultimate solutions to the ills of mankind, become a little more complicated….
America's Villainous Mustache
Mainstream history tends to follow the motions of a play or film, in that archetypes and symbolic figures are consistently created in order to satisfy the natural flow of a particular fiction. The bad guy wears a mustache (not always, but it is strange and disturbing to see how often this archetype materializes in the mainstream worldview. Just look at Hitler, Stalin, Fidel Castro, Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden, Muammar Gaddafi, Bashar al-Assad, etc. We love mustached villains). His criminal successes make him imposing and frightening. He acts without conscience, or, he wrongly believes his terrible actions are justified in the name of the “greater good”. His inevitable mistakes make his final failure ironic and satisfying in the face of the iconic hero, who defeats the enemy while the citizenry stands back and watches in awe and wonder as helpless spectators.
The villain is indeed evil, and deserves to be dethroned, but the assumption many people make is that the other side is diametrically good. This is not always the case….
America is used to playing the role of the hero in the epic tale of modern Earth. Our nation began with an act of defiance and victory so unexpected and so poetic, it cemented our cultural identity as freedom fighters for centuries to come. Over time, our government, turning progressively corrupt, has exploited this cultural identity in order to lure Americans into committing atrocities in the name of our traditional sense of “heroism”. We have, in fact, become the very antagonists we thought we were fighting against (there's the delicious irony needed to round out our fairytale).
Our government's actions surrounding Syria, for instance, have made America appear not just bloodthirsty, but also ridiculous. The Obama Administration has taken us to the brink of World War III and left us there to stare out over the chasm. The slightest breeze could send us plummeting. All to generate military support for Al-Qaeda, the same organization designated by the establishment as our mortal enemy.
In the meantime, our economic system now survives solely on the whims of the Federal Reserve, a private central bank that answers to NO ONE, and writes fiscal policy without oversight. The government is not only seeking to trigger world war, it also wants to pay for that war with money we do not have, riding debts we cannot pay, to foreign creditors we will piss off in the process of unleashing our unfunded laser guided hell.
Never has the U.S. been slathered in so much absurdity all at once. Now, we wear the mustache….
Most of us in the Liberty Movement would agree that our country is being poisoned from within, and that our government for many decades has become an enemy of all free peoples. But there is a very important question that we seem to have overlooked:
If America has been written as the villain, then who is meant to be the hero?
Putin Is Not Your Buddy
Let's step back from the global stage for a moment and examine the situation from a different perspective. What if the U.S. is not just a product of corruption for corruption's sake? What if our new identity as the next historical evil-doer is part of a greater script, and America's fall from grace is meant to be used to foment the success of fantastic (but fake) protagonists in an engineered fight for a “better and more centralized world”?
How many of us in the Liberty Movement cheered the diplomatic and strategic prowess of Vladimir Putin, for example, in the days leading to Obama's “red line” attack on Syria? We cheered because his position was correct, and his demeanor made our government look homicidal by comparison. We cheered his letter to TIME Magazine because we are tired of being the only people pointing out the vicious parasite our political body has become, and it was exciting to be vindicated by an outside source. We cheered his protection of Edward Snowden, a truly courageous whistleblower that exposed the terrifying Orwellian nature of the NSA. We watch video reports from Russia Today (RT) because they give a far more accurate accounting of the facts in the U.S. than all American media entities combined. It is easy for us to get caught up in the idea that since the West has become the bad guy, the East must now be the good guy.
The problem is, we are being played yet again.
Putin has long called for the end of the dollar's world reserve status and the creation of a new “global structure” and a “global currency” revolving around the IMF's Special Drawing Rights:
Is it just coincidence that Putin wants the same centralized global economy and global governance that the IMF and multiple banking elites have been calling for for years? The same elites who created the debt crisis and currency crisis we now face in America? Is it just coincidence that Eastern economic and political dominance over issues like Syria perfectly benefits the IMF plan for an financial shift to the BRICS nations and away from the U.S. greenback? The same plan promoted by many American financial moguls?
Russia is a model for despotic socialized society posing as “civilized society”, and yet, our government has made America so ugly that Russia looks noble by comparison. Putin is placed on the cover of TIME magazine everywhere in the world except the U.S., and the Washington Times responds by stating that such behavior is a sign of “America's downward spiral in the global community”, as if we are about to be shunned from the world at large:
While RT produces fantastic journalistic pieces that are critical of American government, rarely if ever do they turn a discerning eye to Russia, and this is not just oversight.
Look carefully at the narrative that is being constructed here. Putin is NOT our buddy. He represents exactly what our own government now represents; globalism and naked centralized government aggression against the individual. However, as mainstream history is being written, the story will be told that it was nations like Russia and China, and organizations like the IMF, that tried to hold back the tide of catastrophe while America, the last empire, steamrolled into thick-skulled oblivion surfing on a shockwave of fiat money and brute military vanity.
The Washington Aristocracy Is Scum, But Don't Let That Fool You…
Most people with an extensive Liberty Movement education are well aware that false paradigms are used in politics by establishment elites in order to control social discussion and to divide the population against each other. The Left/Right debate has been and always will be a farce, being that the leadership on both sides of the aisle have identical goals when it comes to the most important aspects of the American structure. The elites of the Democratic and Republican parties, regardless of rhetoric, will BOTH strive for greater government power, less individual liberty, the erasure of economic sovereignty and free markets, and a dependent and enslaved public. On these pursuits, they completely agree.
In one week, our faux leadership is to decide once AGAIN on the possibility of a debt ceiling increase that will bring us ever closer to a debt and currency avalanche event. During past debates, much fanfare is given to the supposed conflict between the interests of the Democrats and the GOP, up until the last moment when the GOP caves in completely and allows the debt ceiling to be vaulted. Will the same happen again in this case? It depends on how quickly the establishment wants to bring entire roof down on our heads.
A freeze of the debt ceiling would eventually mean default on our Treasury Bonds, since our government must take on exponential debt in order to receive the benefits of the Federal Reserve's printing press, as well as pay off our foreign creditors.
A government shutdown could slow the growth of some liabilities, but it does not account for the liabilities already in circulation, thus, we can still default. Not to mention, our debt and currency standing could easily come into question, resulting in a bond dump or loss of reserve status.
The only option that does not result in a fast moving firestorm through our financial system is a debt ceiling increase, and how much longer can we get away with kicking the can down the road? In any case, America is about to change for the worse, and the decision on when this is to happen was made a long time ago. The Washington aristocracy is blatantly guilty in the instigation of our current dilemma, and my theory is, they want you to know they are the culprit, as long as you continue believing they are the ONLY culprit. They want you to forget all about the IMF, the corporate elites, and Vladimir Putin's involvement in the larger plan. They want you to cheer when international banks and what's left of the G20 rescue us after years of fiscal disaster and institute centralized global economic governance. They want to be the only authors of this story, and what author doesn't want to see himself placed in the role of the champion?
Just as there are false political paradigms, there are also false international paradigms. The Liberty Movement is the wild card; an unknown quantity. We aren't fighting for one side or the other – we are fighting for particular principles and beliefs. The establishment's best strategy is to co-opt our momentum by convincing us to focus on alternative opposition, or place our trust in fabricated advocates. No matter how epically monstrous our government becomes, and no matter how satisfying their ultimate demise will be, our battle does not end with them. It only begins with them.

By Dr. Edwin Vieira, Jr., Ph.D., J.D.
September 24, 2013
In his recent column, “I Want a Real Liberty Movement”, Timothy Baldwin has presented a very challenging argument in favor of a new constitutional convention. I believe, however, that his basic contentions do not stand up well to critical analysis.
I. Mr. Baldwin tells his readers that he
agree[s] with [Mark] Levin that the only way to change the jurisprudence of our constitutional law (specifically put, to redefine what the Courts have defined regarding Congress’ power under the commerce and tax power) is for the people to change it through amendment. To be clear, there is no other way to do this and fix the constitutional structure that encourages abuse of federal power.
Until certain federal and state powers are redefined in the Constitution by the States through Article V, Congress will continue to act accordingly (meaning, to regulate in all cases whatsoever), regardless of what pet remedies you think are the answer, like recalling public officials, voting, state nullification, the militia, informed juries, coordination, impeachment, civil disobedience, etc. None of these remedies correct the jurisprudence created by the Judiciary. None fix the inherent diffusive congressional power structure developed over time, which makes Congress essentially accountable to no one.
Unfortunately, this argument accepts as valid a very bad principle as the reason for the action Mr. Baldwin proposes.
The notion that “the jurisprudence created by the Judiciary”—which Mr. Baldwin doubtlessly recognizes as a false jurisprudence, or he would not be advocating amendments of the Constitution in order to set it aside—can be corrected only by various constitutional amendments is even more obviously false and pernicious than the false jurisprudence it intends to nullify through amendments. At base, the argument is self-contradictory. If the Constitution has to be amended, then the supposedly “false” jurisprudence is actually a “true” jurisprudence, because if it were false it would be unconstitutional, by definition, and could not require for its correction an amendment of the Constitution to which it has no legitimate relationship. On the other hand, if this jurisprudence is actually a false jurisprudence, then it has nothing to do with the Constitution ab initio, except to violate it; and therefore some remedy other than amendment of the Constitution would be called for. (As I have already examined what other remedies are available, in my bookHow To Dethrone the Imperial Judiciary, I shall direct the reader there for the details.)
The problem stems from the truly anti-constitutional—I should add “absurd” or even “idiotic”—notion that “the Constitution is what the judges say it is”. The Constitution is neither “correct” nor “incorrect”; it is simply what it is, to be deduced by right reason from what it says. A judicial opinion about the Constitution, however, can be correct or incorrect. Even the Supreme Court has admitted as much in the most palpable manner possible, by reversing itself on constitutional questions numerous times. See, e.g., Payne v. Tennessee, 501 U.S. 808, 827-830 (1991) (collecting cases). In these situations, we are entitled to ask, was the Court incorrect in the first instance, and correct in the second; or correct in the first instance, and incorrect in the second; or incorrect in both instances? How can one know, except by adherence to the rule: “the Supreme Court does not determine what the Constitution means; rather, the Constitution determines whether an opinion of the Supreme Court is correct or incorrect”? Must the Constitution be amended every time some majority of Justices—or, put more bluntly, “the fifth fool” on the Court—renders some dopey or dishonest opinion? If so, then judicial usurpation and tyranny have actually succeeded, and the Constitution has been overthrown. The record of the Supreme Court’s decisions—the so-called United States Reports, if not the greatest then surely the longest work of fiction in the history of the world—is actually “the constitution”; and the document known as the Constitution is nothing more than a blank slate on which the Justices write whatever comes into their heads. That, apparently, is what the advocates of a new constitutional convention accept as the predicament in which this country now finds itself. If that is the best these people can do, one must despair of any good coming out of a process of constitutional amendment which they mediate or in any way significantly influence.
II. But leave aside the problem of what American constitutionalism really means in terms of the relationship of principal and agent between We the People and their ostensible “representatives”, and focus solely on the practicalities of the process of amendment. If a new constitutional convention were convened under Article V, what amendments might it propose? The proponents of a convention say that its agenda can be controlled by law, so that it will not become a “runaway” convention. Perhaps yes, perhaps no.
But if it did turn out to be a “runaway” convention, proposed all sorts of amendments wholly inconsistent with any rational conception of “liberty” (that is, acted like the legislatures of Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, and California, to name a few contemporary “peoples republics” in what passes for “the land of the free”), and some or all of these amendments were eventually ratified, would the courts as they are now constituted declare those amendments invalid, because of the “runaway” nature of the convention? Very unlikely. How long have people tried to bring to the Supreme Court the question of the invalidity of the supposed ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment, without any result, notwithstanding the significant body of evidence in support of that conclusion?
If, on the other hand, the convention were not a “runaway” convention, the amendments it proposed might nonetheless be badly drafted, and therefore could not be supported, even by “the liberty movement” itself. (And some of the proposed amendments I have seen I for one would never support.) So the entire effort could turn out to be largely a waste of time and effort.
If the convention were not a “runaway” convention, and the proposed amendments were good, they would still have to be ratified by three fourths of the States. How long that would take is anyone’s guess.
If one or more of those amendments were ratified, they would then have to be implemented. At that point in time, the compositions of Congress and of the courts would be similar to what they are now—in personality types, if not actually the very same persons—because (according to Mr. Baldwin) “recalling public officials, voting, * * * [and] impeachment” are nothing more than “pet remedies”, and therefore whatever reforms those actions could effect would not have been achieved by the members of “the liberty movement” who spent their time working on behalf of constitutional amendments instead.
A Congress composed of individuals who score near the top of “the prostitution to special interests index” will not accept the diminution of the unconstitutional power which (as Mr. Baldwin points out) “makes Congress essentially accountable to no one”. Such a Congress will never change its ways on its own initiative. Instead, it will merely pass “stealth legislation”, artfully drafted to attempt to sneak around the limits the new constitutional amendments interpose. Whether it succeeds in this deception, and whether old statutes which the new amendments arguably negate will be overturned, will depend entirely upon the courts—because that, of course, is the way of “the jurisprudence of our constitutional law” which Mr. Baldwin accepts as so controlling that it can be changed, or even challenged, only by amendment of the Constitution. Being the appointees of a rogue Presidents and Senators , the judges will oppose these amendments in principle, and in practice will do everything possible to avoid deciding cases that apply them, or to construe them in some grossly deformed manner. The judicial dishonesty that created the problem supposedly necessitating the new amendments will pale into insignificance in comparison with the judicial dishonesty that will be employed to render those amendments as innocuous, if not as meaningless, as possible. So the all-important question remains to be answered by the people in “the liberty movement” who are proposing a constitutional convention: “Exactly how are the new amendments to be enforced—in a timely and effective manner, if at all—if the first level of totally corrupt enforcers in Congress and the courts simply refuses to enforce them as they should be enforced?
In any event, even with a completely honest Judiciary at every level of the federal system, it will take Heaven alone knows how long to have each of the amendments “construed” and “applied” by the courts. Years will be consumed as various “cases” and “controversies” wend their ways from United States District Courts to United States Courts of Appeals, or from State trial courts to State intermediate courts to State supreme courts—then many months more while petitions for writs of certiorari go to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court accepts vanishingly few such petitions, however. And doubtlessly it will be reluctant to accept one on the interpretation and application of a brand-new amendment until the crucial controlling issues have been identified, fought over, and clarified in several lower-court decisions. Even then, the “cases” and “controversies” finally heard will be limited to their specific facts. So only bits and pieces of the total effect of each amendment will be dealt with in each “case” or “controversy”. To determine the full meaning of an amendment could thus take decades, or even longer. (How many provisions of the Constitution as it now stands are still not completely “construed” in the Supreme Court’s opinions?) And for all anyone knows, some or perhaps many of these “cases” and “controversies” will be argued by incompetent counsel, or the opinions in them written by incompetent Justices or their incompetent law clerks, making a first-class rat’s nest out the results.
So I fail to comprehend how a new constitutional convention can be viewed by anyone as a plausibly workable remedy for the problems it is supposedly designed to address. To me, it looks much more like a “crap shoot”—with the dice heavily loaded against the shooter, at that.
III. Now compare, in a few particulars, a new constitutional convention to revitalization of the Militia. I suppose I should do this in any event—but I am especially encouraged to take on the task by Mr. Baldwin’s disparaging inclusion of “the militia” in his catalogue of “pet remedies” that he apparently believes are so inferior to a convention that all efforts in their direction people in “the liberty movement” should turn instead to a convention. (Actually, I cannot become too exercised about this, because—even though Mr. Baldwin does not seem to recognize the logical necessity of it—amendment of the Constitution is just as much someone’s “pet remed[y]” as any of the other “remedies” on his list. But, on the other hand, Mr. Baldwin has provided me with “a teaching moment” which I should hate to waste.)
A. If “the militia”—by which I presume Mr. Baldwin means “the Militia of the several States” which the Constitution incorporates into the federal system—are anyone’s “pet remedies”, they are the Founding Fathers’ “pet remedies”; for the Founders included the Militia in the Constitution as “being necessary to the security of a free State”, a characterization which they did not append to the process of amendment in Article V (or anything else). Importantly, the verb “being” is in thepresent tense, because the Militia are always“necessary”. An amendment of the Constitution, while surely useful, is by its very nature an extraordinary event which the Constitution presumes may occur in the future, but does not expect to occur every day (although, if Mr. Baldwin is right to imply that amending the Constitution is the only way to correct “the [faulty]jurisprudence created by the Judiciary”, then America could conceivably need a continuous process of amendments for every constitutional blunder of the Supreme Court in each of its Terms, as well as for all of the unconstitutional decisions the lower courts hand down every year that are never reviewed by the Supreme Court). Unlike a constitutional convention, as permanent constitutional institutions the Militia are fully capable of exercising their authority every day of every year. And their authority is as extensive as the laws of both the Union and the States—where the term “laws” includes the Constitution itself. True enough, the Militia cannot amend the Constitution. But they canexecute (that is, enforce) the Constitution according to its true (or, as some people like to say, its “original”) intent, and in doing so largely obviate what Mr. Baldwin rightly deprecates as “the [false] jurisprudence of our constitutional law”. For “[t]he [false] jurisprudence of our constitutional law” is of little moment if it cannot be enforced, because the Militia refuse to enforce it, as the Constitution would require them to refuse.
B. Application to Congress for a constitutional convention requires two thirds of the States. Adoption of a proposed amendment cannot be effected by less than three fourths of the States, let alone by a single State. Ratification of a proposed amendment in one State does nothing to help that State or any other Stateright away. Ratification in one State does not allow that State to operate under the proposed amendment. Ratification in one State does not show what the effect of adoption of the amendment would be even in that State, let alone in other States or throughout the country. And, although ratification in one State may encourage other States to ratify in their turn, it also may not, as the history of the proposed but never ratified Equal Rights Amendment proves.
Conversely, revitalization of the Militia can be accomplished in one State at a time, simply by the passage of a statute. One State does not need the concurrence of any other State, or of the General Government, to revitalize her Militia, because the Militia are “the Militia of the several States” taken as individual polities, not as a collective. Revitalization of the Militia in one State helps that State immediately. And revitalization of the Militia in one State shows other States exactly what can in fact be done, because it is being done, and therefore encourages them in the most instructive manner possible to revitalize their Militia, too.
C. The ultimate deficit this country faces is one of time. T-I-M-E. Time. There is too little time to engage in a process as lengthy, complex, and problematical as will involve and grow out of a constitutional convention and its aftermath. A major economic collapse is now confronting the United States, and even the entire world. It will not take ten or twenty years to come to its poisonous fruition. Anyone familiar with the alternative financial media—and even much of the “mainstream” media, as well—knows that the Federal Reserve System and the United States Treasury are in deep trouble. Indeed, “central banking”, “fiat currencies”, “monetization” of public debt, and Ponzi schemes bottomed on “fractional reserves” (or in most instancesfictional “reserves”) are disintegrating across the globe. Most crucially, the status of the Federal Reserve System as the de facto “world central bank” and of the Federal Reserve Note as the de facto “world reserve currency” is threatened. A collapse of the monetary and banking systems will result in depression, hyperinflation, or depression coupled with hyperinflation. No State is adequately prepared at present to deal with the economic chaos, social dislocations, civil unrest, and civil disobedience which will then ensure. And no possible amendments of the Constitution can prevent this collapse from occurring, even if they were ratified tomorrow, because the economic die has already been cast, and irretrievably so.
The present situation is very much like a scene which might have taken place on the doomed liner Titanic:The ship has struck the iceberg; it is going down fast by the head. In the Grand Salon, Mr. Andrews, the ship’s designer, meets with a group of marine engineers and skilled workmen. They pour over blueprints, plans, specifications, engineering tables of one kind and another, and lists of available materials and tools. Then they announce to Captain Smith that, in principle, they can save the ship, by shoring up some old bulkheads, building some new ones, and concentrating the pumps in a certain area. Captain Smith asks them how long it will take. About twenty hours, Andrews replies. Unfortunately, at that moment Titanic has only an hour left to live. The movement for a constitutional convention presents an exact parallel. Arguably, if everything went according to plan (which raises an host of other questions) a set of good amendments could, in principle, go far towards saving this country. But it would take five, ten, or twenty years to see significant results. And America can count on far less time than that before the economic roof falls in on her head.
Actually, the Titanic scenario is far more realistic, because it involves solely a problem of engineering, a solution for which can be worked out mathematically, and an accurate prediction of its effects made. Moreover, everyone on Titanic would have wanted the problem to be solved as quickly as possible, because if the work could have been done Titanic would not have sunk. Such a unanimity of purpose among Americans, especially those high up in the political class, does not exist with respect to the proposal, ratification, or implementation of new amendments truly favorable to “liberty”. And, in any event, no one can predict the actual effects those amendments may have when implemented. But it is certain that they can have no effect whatsoever on the present economic situation and its immediate consequences, certainly not in time to correct the underlying problem or significantly to mitigate its most disastrous effects.
America needs a solution to this problem—even a partial and imperfect solution—that can be put into operation right now—or as I like to say, immediately if not sooner. The Militia are “necessary to the security of a free State” in every sense, including “economic security”. However, they are moribund. But they can be revitalized in any State, and in every State, simply by the enactment of a single State statute in each jurisdiction. Revitalization of the Militia does not constitute or depend upon “nullification”, “interposition”, or “civil disobedience”; neither does it require or entail violence. Anyone who suggests otherwise is simply ignorant of the subject-matter.
For example, adoption by a State of an alternative currency in anticipation of the collapse of the Federal Reserve System does not turn on establishing the unconstitutionality of the banking-cartel in the courts, or ratifying a new constitutional amendment under the aegis of which the cartel would have to be disestablished. For, whether that System is constitutional or unconstitutional in whole or in part now, or could be outlawed by some new amendment later on, each State at this very moment retains reserved powers under the Constitution to maintain her own Militia, to make gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts, and to administer her system of alternative currency through her Militia, without any consideration of the Federal Reserve. Similarly, any State can insulate herself from the national para-military police state being set up under the Department of Homeland Security by revitalizing her Militia and incorporating all State and Local “law-enforcement” and “emergency-management” agencies within her Militia—whereupon no official of the DHS can give any commands to those agencies, because no official of the DHS can be an “officer” in the Militia, inasmuch as the Constitution explicitly reserves to each State the authority to appoint all of the “officers” in her own Militia (other than the President of the United States). These actions can be taken right now, without the need to ratify any new constitutional amendment, simply by the passage of a single statute in each State (if the matter is handled competently), and even within what Mr. Baldwin describes as “the jurisprudence of our constitutional law”. So, until these relatively simple actions have been taken in at least one State, and their merits scientifically falsified by the experiment’s failure to produce the desired results, why would any prudent person want to eschew them in favor of a highly problematic program aimed at a new constitutional convention?
Correctly revitalized, the Militia will prepare the people in each State for dealing with all sorts of emergencies, including economic collapse, monetary chaos, civil disorder, massive food shortages, epidemics, natural disasters, and so on. True enough, it may be that revitalization will help each State in her own particular way, and perhaps at first only a single State. But “it is better to light one candle than to curse the darkness”. And it may be true that revitalization in one State will amount to just the first step in what ends up as a long and difficult political and legal march through the rest of the States. But (as the Chinese proverb has it) “a journey of a thousand li begins with a single step”. After all, although Titanic sank, and hundreds died needlessly because not enough lifeboats were available, it was nevertheless a blessing that some lifeboats were at hand, and that some passengers were saved. Similarly, a “real liberty movement” (to use Mr. Baldwin’s term) may not be able to revitalize all of the Militia in all of the States, or to revitalize any of them in any of the States to the greatest possible degree, in time to fend off all of the very worst effects of the coming economic collapse. But whatever is accomplished will have some salutary effect, somewhere, for some people. And something achieved on that score is better than nothing—and certainly is a far more realistic and attainable goal than the pie-in-the-sky promises offered, without any assurances whatsoever, by the proponents of a new constitutional convention.
Personally, I am sick and tired—as no doubt are the readers of this column—of watching “the liberty movement” commit suicide with the death of a thousand cuts at its own hand, day after day, year after year. But launching another “children’s crusade”, which even if successful in obtaining its objective at some unpredictable time in the future could not possibly deal with the great danger now confronting this country, is quixotic behavior at best.
Yet the more I observe this situation, the more I sense that perhaps Field Marshal Gerd von Rundstedt was sapient in his two negative replies to Field Marshal Erwin Rommel, as depicted in the Twentieth Century Fox movie “The Desert Fox”—the first, when Rommel (played by James Mason) suggests that von Rundstedt (played by Leo G. Carroll) should approach Hitler and try to convince him to change his insane strategy, and von Rundstedt begs off; the second, when Rommel later tries to bring von Rundstedt into the German resistance-movement’s plan to depose Hitler, and von Rundstedt declines. As applied today in this country, the lesson “The Desert Fox” teaches is that it may be too late to save “the liberty movement”, and that the wise man who has tried his best in the past to do so, but without a scintilla of success, is now entitled to stop beating his head against a brick wall, and instead to sit back and view the entire matter with serene detachment, as merely another sorry episode in the long chronicle of mankind’s follies. Personally, I am not yet ready to embrace this lugubrious conclusion. But the more I observe “the liberty movement” at work today, the more I wonder whether perhaps von Rundstedt might have been right, after all.

I have felt Dr. Vieira’s frustration in every bone of my body for years now, and as the time nears for our demise, I am afflicted with bloody sores in my mind from this constant bickering for leadership in the patriot movement. I’m close to concluding that all is already lost so let’s get busy killing each other in the imminent civil war. Nothing reduces stress like murdering your fellow countrymen seems to be the opinion of all concerned. Otherwise they would be agreeing on something. I cannot help but admire the intelligence of both these men but I am greatly concerned as to why neither of them has ever broached this subject.
Our Courts have nothing to do with Justice!
IN THE USA THE LEGAL SYSTEM IS NOT WHAT LAWYERS – AND THE MEDIA – TELL US IT IS!
This is of course, way off the subject at hand, but I still want to know why neither of them has ever mentioned it. Could it be we all are in a sinking boat from birth?

The last few days have been historic from a political news junkie’s point of view, and I can tell you this is not going away regardless of whose head rolls. My dear friend, Marilyn Barnewall and I have been emailing back and forth every since I stumbled on to the first posting of this scenario trying to determine if it was factual or made up. She found out that the original author was a scumbag unemployed moocher on his eighty something Mother, and a liar on his website’s readership volume.
Our first conclusion was this is all a fabricated lie, but it has refused to go away and instead is gaining momentum. The absolute proof of both of these claims is yet to surface, and as much as I detest this scumbag in the White House, for the sake of America I hope it proves untrue, but for now I consider it something he would gladly do to totally destroy America.
The story originated at presscore.ca/2012/washington-dc-navy-yard-shooting…
Here is Marilyn’s first result’s:
Paul W. Kincaid is Presscore.ca. It is not a corp at all and does not have 40 million readers as represented. 2 days ago, I found a comment by Paul Kincaid’s brother at this URL http:// disinfounmasked.wordpress.com/2013/06/25/steven-messham/ stating that Paul Kincaid was a liar and had not had a job since 2010. Also that he had moved back to New Brunswick, Canada to mooch off of their 83 year old mother who was dying of cancer. Yesterday, that website was removed from the internet. Since yesterday, the presscore.ca was taken down.”
If you recall, about a month ago I sent you an email from Senator Sheldon Songstad announcing that FEMA Camps in Region III were being stocked with food and water. There was also news of school children being given a three-day supply of food and water – suggesting they would be apart from their parents for at least three days. You might want to re-read that email after reading the following information because it ties things together… missing nukes that were supposed to end up on the East Coast, FEMA camps, children’s provisions, and all.
Here is the original article:
Washington DC Navy Yard shooting linked to attempted arrest of Obama for treason
Posted by PRESS Core Corruption, World news Thursday,
September 19th, 2013
“In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt.
U.S. military police were targeted and killed by Obama in the Washington DC Navy Yard shooting. Why? Agents from the U.S. military’s criminal investigation units had uncovered a plot to detonate a nuclear device in the heart of the nation’s capitol as part of an Obama government false flag.
Officials from NCIS (United States Naval Criminal Investigative Service) and the U.S. Office of the Provost (both with field offices inside the Washington DC Navy Yard) had threatened to arrest Obama for planning to attacked Syria without Congressional approval following a planned nuclear detonation false flag in Washington DC. The Office of the Provost is on the second floor of Building 34, One First Avenue, Charlestown Navy Yard and NCIS is located at 716 SICARD STREET SE, SUITE 2000, WASHINGTON NAVY YARD, DC.
The United States Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) is the primary law enforcement agency of the United States Department of the Navy. It investigates activities concerning crimes against or by United States Navy and United States Marine Corps personnel, along with national security, counter-intelligence, and counter-terrorism cases. A false flag is the crime of treason – levying war against the United States. If United States Navy or United States Marine Corps personnel are involved in planning for and preparing a false flag event in Washington DC or anywhere else in the United States, NCIS and its agents are duty bound to investigate and take action to counter those terrorist acts against the United States.
Prior to the Washington DC Navy Yard shooting the Joint Chief of Staff and Provost Marshals were planning and preparing to arrest Obama for treason. For levying war against the United States with a planned false flag in Washington DC on the anniversary of 9/11 – a nuclear detonation.
In the United States the Office of the Provost has the authority to arrest the President if he or she violates the terms of his/her employment, or commits an act that is detrimental to the United States. He/she can be held liable, arrested, imprisoned etc., depending on the depth of the violation, by the Provost Marshal.
If it has been determined that the president of the United States has committed treason in a manner unmistakable to all, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff convenes a covert meeting (in this case the Washington DC Navy Yard) to get a vote of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The Provost Marshall General of the Army and/or Marines will usually be in attendance. Remember that a military officer takes an oath of office to do one thing and one thing only – “……. to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against ALL enemies, foreign OR DOMESTIC.” They must determine above a reasonable doubt that the enemy domestic is the treasonous president before they can attempt to arrest him or her.
Once the Joint Chiefs of Staff have determined beyond a reasonable doubt that the president has committed treason a convoy of 10 to 12 HIGH ranking officers (13 killed at the Navy Yard) depart the Pentagon, accompanied by a large contingency of Military Police (Provost Marshals, NCIS agents) and all necessary armament and provisions to enter the grounds of the White House, by FORCE if necessary, and proceed to the location of the president and put him under arrest. Then, The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff would advise the Speaker of The House, The President of the Senate, The Attorney General and the Secretary of State of their actions. Obama’s response to the threat of arrest was a coordinated assault against NCIS agents who uncovered the false flag plot against the United States and Provost Marshals who threatened to arrest Obama at the Washington DC Navy Yard.
Have you wondered why not all of the names and the rank of those who were killed in the assault have been released? The White House (Obama) ordered their names and rank classified as it would raise alarm bells in Washington DC should the public know Joint Chiefs of Staff members, Provost Marshals and NCIS agents were targeted and killed for threatening to arrest Obama for treason. The White House is claiming that the names of those killed are being withheld pending next of kin notification.
On September 28, 2009 the History Channel released a movie titled “Day After Disaster“. The entire movie is about Washington DC being the target and victim of a nuclear detonation. The movie also features Obama talking about nuclear detonations in the U.S. Movie 0.50 time stamp – “One terrorist, one nuclear weapon could unleash massive destruction” ~ Obama says. Last year PRESS Core wrote an article titled “COG planning for and preparing Washington DC nuclear detonation false flag event.” after receiving information that September 30, 2012 was the day “Day after Disaster” was to executed in real-time. Obama’s planned false flag attack for September 30, 2012 was averted after the public was made aware of the false flag beginning August 18th, 2012.
Obama’s 9/11 anniversary false flag was thwarted when the Joint Chief > of Staff and the Provost Marshals from the Washington DC Navy Yard confronted Obama and threatened to arrest him for treason for planning to detonate one or more nukes in the nation’s capitol – Washington DC.
The EU Times reported June 27, 2013 – “Obama Requests 15,000 Russian Troops For “Upcoming” Disaster“ In that story it claims Obama “has requested at least 15,000 Russian troops trained in disaster relief and “crowd functions” [i.e. riot control] be pre-positioned to respond to FEMA Region III during an unspecified “upcoming” disaster. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Region III includes Delaware,Washington, D.C (formally the District of Columbia) , Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia areas.
According to this report, this unprecedented request was made directly to Minister Vladimir Puchkov by US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Director Janet Napolitano (now retired) who said these Russian troops would work “directly and jointly” with her Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), part of whose mission is to secure the continuity of the US government in the event of natural disasters or war.
Obama brings in Russian soldiers to police U.S. after false flag This report has been verified. The origins of this report can be read on the website of Ministry of the Russian Federation for Affairs for Civil Defence, Emergencies and Elimination of Consequences of Natural Disasters – or internationally as EMERCOM of Russia – “The Russian Emergency Situations Ministry and the USA Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) are going to exchange experts during joint rescue operations in major disasters. This is provided by a protocol of the fourth meeting of the U.S.-Russia Bilateral Presidential Commission Working Group on Emergency Situations and seventeenth meeting of Joint U.S.-Russia Cooperation Committee on Emergency Situations, which took place in Washington on 25 June.”
“In addition, the parties approved of U.S. Russian cooperation in this field in 2013-2014, which envisages exchange of experience including in monitoring and forecasting emergency situations, training of rescuers, development of mine-rescuing and provision of security at mass events.“ Source: http://en.mchs.ru/news/item/434203/
U.S. Russian soldiers training together.
Former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano ABC News Aug 27, 2013: “A massive and “serious” cyber attack on the U.S. homeland is coming, and a natural disaster — the likes of which the nation has never seen — is also likely on its way.“
The only way anyone could know that there is “a natural disaster — the likes of which the nation has never seen — is also likely on its way” is if you are the one planning and preparing it.
“You also will have to prepare for the increasing likelihood of more weather-related events of a more severe nature as a result of climate change, and continue to build the capacity to respond to potential disasters in far-flung regions of the country occurring at the same time.
“You will need a large bottle of Advil,” Napolitano joked.
Napolitano is hinting at what the United States government (Obama) is planning and preparing for using its weather modifying weapon of mass destruction called HAARP.
Don’t think the U.S. government is planning to detonate a nuke in Washington DC? They’ve already planned for it. DHS (illegal posse posse comitatus force) / FEMA Washington DC nuclear detonation scenario report – http://www.fas.org/irp/agency/dhs/fema/ncr.pdf complete with nuclear detonation maps, charts and fatality estimates. NCR stands for National Capital Region.
Why else would Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano suddenly resign her post (announced her resignation July 12, 2013) and leave Washington DC for California? Because while she was Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano planned for and prepared for a major Washington DC event. She got out of dodge before the “attack on the U.S. homeland is coming“.
Janet Napolitano’s resignation as Department of Homeland Security Secretary was effective … September 7, 2013 – just 4 days before the planned 9/11 anniversary nuclear device detonation false flag. Just before leaving her post Dyess Air Force base reportedly moved nuclear warheads to the East Coast of the United States in a secret transfer that had no paper trail. The Dyess Air Force Commander allegedly authorized unknown parties to transfer nuclear warheads to an unknown location on the U.S. East Coast, where the warheads would then be picked up and potentially utilized. Conspiracy?
Legal definition for conspiracy – An agreement between two or more persons to engage jointly in an unlawful or criminal act, or an act that is innocent in itself but becomes unlawful when done by the combination of actors.
A conspiracy is codified as a criminal offense. A conspiracy is not fiction, made up, make belief or theory. A conspiracy is an indictable offense wherein – two or more persons engage jointly in an unlawful or criminal act. The evidence reveals that Obama, the DHS, FEMA and other agencies of the United States are actively conspiring to levy war against the United States through a false flag – an unlawful or criminal act.

President Obama Has Nervous Break Down
Meltdown in Washington: President Obama Reported Sedated Following Emotional Breakdown
The President Seen Returning to the White House
By Nigel J. Covington III
<National Report> Late this afternoon White House insiders leaked information stating the president has suffered a mental breakdown and is presently resting and under a doctors care. This afternoon the National Report received three calls on our nationwide hot tip line (206) 222-1975. Two of the three callers are insiders known to the National Report to be reliable confidential informants.
The caller unknown to this publication is a low level employee who could only state that there was some kind of a medical emergency involving President Obama. The other two callers known to us are both support personnel within the Obama administration. Both confirmed this week has been a political disaster for the president and this has taken a tremendous toll on him.
Russian President Vladimir Putin Has Recently Shamed Obama on the World Stage
Earlier this week Russian President Vladimir Putin derailed the president’s plan to bomb Syria and bury the U.S. in another war the people want nothing to do with and can ill afford to pay for. Putin negotiated a deal with Syria for control over its chemical weapons providing a peaceful resolution to a certain US attack. With the world watching Obama was forced to stand down causing him a great deal of shame and public embarrassment.
Before Putin extended the olive branch of diplomacy to resolve the Syrian crisis, he also agreed to grant asylum to Edward Snowden, the man who stole US secret documents that exposed the NSA secret program already underway and approved by President Obama to spy on all US citizens. Not only did Snowden expose the top secret NSA program to the world, he escaped US authorities in China and arrived in Russia where he repeatedly b****-slapped the president by releasing more US secrets to the media.
Safely in the arms of Mother Russia Snowden, showed the world people how helpless and weak the Obama administration is at being utter failures at diplomacy, tact and statesmanship. While Putin and Obama were engaged in “negotiations” over Snowden’s extradition, Snowden and Putin were engaged in conversation about Snowden’s defecting to Russia.
Whistle-blower Edward Snowden Exposed Obama-NSA scandal
In one of the most crippling moments of President Obama’s tenure Putin cut a deal with Snowden for asylum giving the Russian president tons of other US secrets. Edward Snowden now lives safely beyond the reach of Obama’s dirty scandal ridden administration who would’ve imprisoned or killed Snowden without a trial clearly disregarding all of Snowden’s civil liberties and denying him the opportunity to explain his actions before a court of law who would determine Snowden’s fate… not Obama. Then Putin told Obama ‘no’ on Snowden’s extradition completely shaming the president in front of the world.
In the past couple weeks the big winners on the world stage have been Syria, Russia, Snowden and Putin; all at the expense of America’s impotent and fraudulent president.
Remember what Obama “sold” the American people in his 2008 bid for the presidency? Obama the “agent of revolution” guaranteed “change” instead he lied to everyone by promising the “most transparent” government – “no special interest” – “a new way of doing business” – “most honest” – “most righteous” – “the new beginning” – then there was the abortion of Obama’s world tour… what a national mortification. And today how many of these promises has the president kept?
President Obama – Epic Failure Shames America
Then today’s Gallup poll results have been absolutely devastating for the president and the Democratic party. Obama’s approval rating dropped to the lowest in presidential history, and support from the Democratic Party plummeted more than 25% from this time last year.
Our sources confirm late this afternoon a doctor was summoned to the oval office and remained with the president for about a half-hour. When the doctor emerged he was heard to say the president needed rest and would be sedated once he was moved to his bed. The White House has remained silent and has yet to make a statement publicly.
The Nixon Alliance Underground:
As you can see the SHHTF, and it’s going to take a lot of handy wipes to clean up the mess. Now, for those of you who were not prepared for something like this due to not doing your home work, or cognitive dissonance, whatever! I strongly suggest you read everything you can on both sides of the story, so you can conclude with your own work that OBUMA is the most hated President in the History of America. Not even that scumbag Lincoln, comes close to this bum. A good place to start is on today’s post at
The CIA Manchurian Candidate Groomed by Communists to Destroy America
September 22nd, 2013 by olddog
By Dave Hodges
Our Congress has an all-time low 9% approval rating, and Obama’s popularity is in the toilet. It has been 10 years since I declared war upon the central bankers. In that time, I have watched millions of our fellow countrymen show evidence that they are in various stages of waking up to the tyranny that is attacking every facet of our lives. The alternative media has done a marvelous job of reaching the masses despite being ridiculed and shut out of the mainstream. The alternative media is being so effective that Congress is attempting to declare us to “not be journalists” in a bill that is in Committee.
It is my considered opinion that we have awakened enough people who are collectively capable of making substantial fundamental differences. This begs the obvious question, then why don’t we see a massive revolution against the central bankers and their institutions of control? There is no simple answer that will explain all the fence-sitting we are witnessing in the country today. However, there is one social psychological factor which explains why the majority of the people who are awake to the present level of tyranny are not sufficiently motivated to act, and that factor is called bystander apathy.
The term bystander apathy (i.e. fence sitting) refers to the phenomenon in which the greater the number of people present, the less likely people are to help a person in distress. When an emergency situation occurs, observers are more likely to take action if there are few or no other witnesses.
The most frequently cited example of the bystander effect in introductory psychology textbooks is the brutal murder of a young woman named Catherine “Kitty” Genovese. On Friday, March 13, 1964, 28-year-old Genovese was returning home from work. While Genvovese approached her apartment entrance, she was attacked and repeatedly stabbed by a man later identified as Winston Moseley.
Despite Genovese’s repeated calls for help, none of the dozen people in the nearby apartmentbuilding who heard her cries called the police. The attack first began at 3:20 AM, but it was not until 3:50 AM that someone first contacted police. Genovese’s death was preventable and the failure of your neighbors to report the crime in progress brought the social psychology term, bystander apathy, into the national discussion about people’s unwillingness to act in an emergency situation.
There are two major factors that contribute to bystander apathy. First, the presence of other people creates a diffusion of responsibility. Because there are other observers, individuals do not feel as much pressure to take action, since the responsibility to take action is thought to be shared among all of those present. Generally speaking, the greater the number of people which are present in an emergency, the less likely people are to take action.
The second reason is the need to behave in correct and socially acceptable ways. When other observers fail to react, individuals often take this as a signal that a response is not needed or not appropriate. Other researchers have found that onlookers are less likely to intervene if the situation is ambiguous. In the case of Genovese, most of the 38 witnesses reported that they believed that they were witnessing a “lover’s quarrel,” and did not realize that the young woman was actually being murdered.
The Globalists Are Committing a Full Frontal Assault Upon Humanity
There has never been a time in the recorded history of our planet where such a large group of people have been under such a widespread and prolonged attack and have failed to fight back with a sense of collective unity. Let’s briefly review many of the major areas that the globalists have decided to attack humanity.
We are under attack from the skies and through the poisoning of our air through massive chemical sprayingcomplete with Alzheimer’s and dementia-causing aluminum sulfate and cancer causing barium. Fukushima radiation,Corexit spraying and the resulting toxic rain from the Gulf oil spill is running rampant over our country, and not one ounce of mainstream media coverage is afforded to these dangers. Prevention and remediation are nonexistent.
Our water is being systematically removed from the country by Nestle, and our water tables are being systematically compromised by environmental toxins. And of course many Americans are consuming water permeated with IQ-lowering rocket fuel (i.e., fluoride).
Our food is being poisoned through the rampant use of cancer-causing MSG products, and the unlabeled, unregulated and cancer-causing Monsanto GMOs.
Under the guise of fighting terrorism, Americans are now facing illegal detention, torture and murder. The Military Commissions Act, the National Defense Authorization Act and the John Warner Defense Authorization Act. are in play in which the average citizen is now labeled as a terrorist by Homeland Security as reported in their inspired documents, such as the MIAC Report. The MIAC report defines domestic terrorism as the mere act of criticizing our governmental leaders, supporting Ron Paul, being a Libertarian, being a member of the Constitution Party, being a Second Amendment supporter and demanding that our leaders follow the Constitution. By virtue of the fact that you have visited this web site, you could now be considered to be a domestic terrorist.
Our national sovereignty and manufacturing base has been destroyed through the free trade agreements of NAFTA and CAFTA which has resulted in totally open borders culminating in the overwhelming of our infrastructure, hospital emergency rooms and our educational institutions by the human onslaught which will be soon be at unprecedented levels which promise to bring 150 million additional immigrants to our country by 2040.
Obama’s administration has openly engaged in human smuggling as well as drug and gun trafficking to criminal cartels, in programs such as “Fast and Furious.” Bush and Obama have illegally entered America into the sovereignty-snatching SPP through the implementation of theNorth American Union.
Our property rights and water rights, as well as our right to farm in traditional ways, are being destroyed through the implementation of the pseudo-environmentalist doctrine known as Agenda 21, whose programs are being rapidly implemented at the local level. As a result, massive food shortages and outright famines are right around the corner.
America is being de-industrialized through the global warming scam and the accompanying illegal cap-and-trade schemes. Meanwhile, as the New York Times reports, Ugandan villages are being burned down and replaced with trees in the name of saving the planet through carbon offset programs. This insane application of carbon trading is now being enforced by American military boots on the ground in Uganda. Soon, you will see roving blackouts and the doubling of utility rates as Obama makes good on his campaign promise of “necessarily skyrocketing utility rates.”
In just over three months, Americans will soon be subjected to the death panels of Obamacare in which citizens over the age of 70 are officially referred to as “units” and are targeted for comfort care but not given life-saving measures. This is an undeniable, unmitigated and naked version of Eugenics cast in the same flavor as that practiced by Margaret Sanger.
In the meantime, our youth are under attack through mercury-laden vaccines which also contains the immune system destroying properties of the flu vaccine adjuvants of MF 59, Squalene and now we find that the active ingredient for Lyme disease is in the patent for the current flu vaccine. One in 58 boys are now autistic courtesy of the pollutants in the vaccines.
America is now witnessing the final stages of the installation of a police state surveillance grid through the creation and installation of video cameras and microphones in the Homeland Security fundedIntellistreet light poles. The National Security Agency listens to our every call, their computers read every email and fax, courtesy of systems such as Echelon. Americans are being encouraged, by Big Sis, to spy on one another as we purchase the Chinese slave labor products at Walmart.
Many fence sitters will soon see their places where they once perched their spineless bodies, disappear as American homes are being stolen through the use of fraudulent robo signers and illegal repossessions without the mortgage note in order that the six mega banks can double and triple their illegitimate profits off each home they are able to steal and resell again and again.
As a result of the illegal “bailouts,” we now know that the Federal Reserve (i.e., Goldman Sachs) is giving our money away to their private banking interests, (aka) their subsidiary holdings, in Europe. Additionally, more of our money has been stolen with the complicit participation of ex-Goldman Sachs federal government overseers like Gary Gensler who has failed to deliver even one indictment of his ex-Goldman Sachs partner, Jon Corzine, and his MF Global theft ring resulting for the “loss” of $3 billion dollars in private accounts. Jhn Corzine and his governmental partner in crime, Gary Gensler, have established the legal precedent of stealing from private American accounts. And the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals made it legal for banks to steal depositors' money. The net effect of all this thievery is that YOU have no retirement. YOU have no social security. YOU have no bank account. Soon, everything YOU own will all belong to the banksters!
Our “public servants” in Congress (e.g., Nancy Pelosi), on 60 Minutes, admitted to routinely engage in stock market insider trading which they have made legal for themselves, but would send you to prison for doing the same.
The TSA incessantly conducts heinous acts against the American people, such as strip searching and injuring 85-year-old ladies, grabbing the genitals of our children and wives and largely engaging in acts which, if performed by you, would land you in jail for five years. Your body and your self-respect belong to the globalists and their minions. Which side of the fence are you fence sitters going to be sitting on when the TSA gropes the private parts of your daughters?
Even with all of these hideous events now hiding in plain sight, I have never called for a revolution against our increasingly illegitimate government, or, should I say against the banksters who have hijacked our Republic. However, I am advocating for non-compliant acts of civil disobedience. There are so many more heinous acts being committed against the American people that it is difficult to count all the ways that tyranny is being installed in America.
The supposed voice of the people, Congress, has taken up sides with those who would exterminate most of us and enslave the remainder of us with the new indefinite detention law, theNational Defense Authorization Act, which allows the government to secretly disappear anyone and assassinate anyone for virtually any reason. The NDAA has totally destroyed what was left of the Constitution because we now live in an America in which the government can declare peaceful dissent, public criticism, and the failure to comply to globalists’ trickledown tyranny as an act of terror in which YOU are subject to secret arrest, torture and even murder. Unfortunately, there are not many places to left to hide.
The dead spirits of Mao, Stalin and Hitler are coalescing in the halls of Congress and you are their newest target! If you are a doubter as to the validity of the claims written in this article, please click on the hypertext links and read for yourself. If only one of the allegations that I make here are true, then our Congress and our President are guilty of treason.
While in the Soviet Gulag, Alexsandr Isayevich Solzhenitsyn and his fellow victims, lamented that they did not mount a resistance when the Secret Police came and dragged people out of their homes and sent them to Siberia. We will soon be faced with the same choice. Those of you who are sitting on the fence when they come to drag the rest of us out of our homes and haul us off to a concentration camp, do you think the modern-day version of the brown shirts are just going to pass you by? And if you are still in denial as to the likelihood that this is going to happen then ask yourself why does the NSA want a record of every website you visit, every word you utter and every work that you type? They are compiling a threat matrix score for each and everyone; and history shows that life-and-death decisions come from such lists. We already see evidence of these types of lists as evidenced by the no-fly list. You cannot find out if you are on the list until the moment you are turned back at the gate of the airport.
Welcome to East Germany!
Our entire governmental leadership is a self-admitted criminal enterprise system as it lawless; it is devoid of empathy, compassion or has any remaining vestiges of the system of Constitutional fair play which was bequeathed to us by our Founding Fathers.
The 300 or so banksters who have hijacked our government are mentally ill. They are sociopathic serial killers. They (e.g., George Soros, Warren Buffet, David Rockefeller, etc.) destroy economies, foment violent revolutions and start wars which kill millions. In short, they are the modern-day version of the money changers that Jesus chased from the Temple.
To the police and the military that are going to be told to enforce this globalist, tyrannical takeover and subsequent subjugation of America, I ask all of you: Which side of history will you be on? Are you going to mindlessly obey the soon-to-be illegitimate orders emanating from these despots, or, are you going to uphold your sworn oath to protect and defend the Constitution from all enemies, both foreign and domestic? Do you really think that your military retirements and police pensions are going to be waiting for you when your tyrannical deeds are done? There are those who will serve the satanic globalist regime – and then there is everybody else. The fundamental question remains for all the fence sitters, is do you really believe that the globalists are going leave you and your family untouched? You have a choice on how you will respond to tyranny. Will you willingly march to your death, or will fight and possibly die with integrity?
Mr. Law Enforcement Official, are you going to acquiesce to your inherent tendency to get caught up in bystander apathy, or are you going to come down on the right side of history?
Can Bystander Apathy Be Successfully Mitigated?
Research shows that bystander apathy can be mitigated, in part, by group cohesiveness which can affect the helping behavior of a bystander. As defined by Rutkowski et al., cohesiveness refers to an established relationship (e.g. friends) between two or more people. There is a reason why the globalists like to use divide-and-conquer strategies as their media minions enjoy pitting white against black, citizens vs. non-citizens and the rich vs. poor. The resulting division lessens the collective group cohesiveness of America and that is the goal as we continue to be carved up like a Thanksgiving turkey. Look at the person next to you; that individual is your potential ally.
Helping behavior and group activism are more likely when there are similarities between the helper and the person being helped. Research has considered the role of similarity, and more specifically, shared group membership, in encouraging bystander intervention. In one experiment (2005), researchers found that bystanders were more likely to help an injured person if that person was wearing a football jersey of a team the bystander liked as opposed to a team the bystander did not like.
However, when their shared identity as football fans was made obvious to both parties, supporters of both teams were likely to be helped, significantly more so than a person wearing a plain shirt. As we bring this into the context of fighting the New World Order, if people of all races, ethnicity and religions would identify as being Americans as well as fellow human beings, we would collectively rush to the aid of our fellow victims. For example, if you were a victim of MF Global, and I see you as a fellow American and human being, I am more likely to join you and raising my voice in opposition to governmental tyranny which permitted the perpetrators of this crime to get away with it. And If my personal issue was the improper application of eminent domain laws against my property, you, in turn, would be more likely to help me if we were to identify with each other.
Scientists from the prestigious Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute have determined that if just 10% of any given population holds to an unshakable idea, the idea will become adopted by the majority of the country.
However, the scientists who belong to the Social Cognitive Networks Academic Research Center (SCNARC) found that if the ideas are shared by less than 10% of the population, the idea will not progress and will eventually die out. The SNARC scientists found that the 10% figure was applicable whether they were talking about the spread of innovations or to advance a political ideal.
We desperately need to redefine how we view our people in general if we are to become united and mount opposition to the tyranny that is presently besetting us. We are just not fellow inhabitants and random strangers in America – more importantly, we are fellow human beings who have a common and identifiable enemy.
I would rather unite with people whose belief systems and subsequent actions that I disagree with than I would want to live under the tyrannical rule of Goldman Sachs, the IMF, the Federal Reserve, the IMF and the World Bank for one more day!
The person next to you is your potential ally; it does not matter what their race or national origin consists of, we are all victims of these New World Order animals who are running our country. Once we begin to unite under the banner of humanity, then the next step is to get people to realize that the solutions to these problems reside within the spiritual realm, but that is another topic for another day.
