The Koch brothers, Pat Stryker, Governor Hickenlooper and many of the Colorado Front Range mayors are all spearheading a movement to enslave the people of Colorado under the dictates of the United Nations created and inspired Agenda 21. Colorado, along with a 15 county area in Northern California and Southern Oregon comprise the beta test for Agenda 21 control over our most precious resources, namely, our water and our farmland.
The Koch Brothers Spearhead the Agenda 21 Takeover of Colorado
The Koch brothers have accomplished nothing. The brothers inherited their immense wealth from their father, Soviet oilman Fred Koch. Yet, these entitled Koch brothers feel that should have the right to dictate to everyone else how they should live.
Stalin actually brought in Fred Koch in order to develop the Soviet Union’s oil industry and now the sins of the father are being visited upon Fred’s sons as they are bringing a virulent form of communism to Colorado.
Koch Industries is the second largest corporation in the United States and, true to form, they have no scruples. The Koch brothers are so corrupt that have been caught stealing oil from protected Indian lands. This should be a hint to the people of Colorado as to what lies in their immediate future.
The Koch brothers espouse the Agenda 21 belief that you do not control your wealth, land, food, water and air; the state does on behalf of the corporations that they serve. For example, the Koch brothers are attacking social security. They have spent $29 million dollars to put forth the propaganda that social security is broke. It is only broke because Congress keeps raiding the funds. The Koch brothers want the retirement age to go to 70 years of age. They want to get their greedy hands on social security so that can invest the funds on Wall Street, thus risking everyone’s social security retirement funds.
Colorado Climate Project
The Rocky Mountain Climate Organization (RMCO) launched the Colorado Climate Project, to bring Coloradans together to reduce the state’s contribution and vulnerability to a changed climate. In the process of enforcing their Agenda 21 inspired policies, Colorado’s farmers and ranchers are under attack. Click here to read the Project’s mission statement. The project followed the model established by several state governments, including those in Arizona, New Mexico, and Montana, but was the first such project undertaken as a private initiative. Click here to learn more about the process the Project followed, including the role of the Climate Action Panel.
RMCO’s project directors appointed the members of the Climate Action Panel, received its final report, and serve as key public spokespersons about the Colorado Climate Project and its recommendations. The project directors are:
John Hickenlooper, Governor of Colorado
Steve Burkholder, mayor of Lakewood
Doug Hutchinson, mayor of Fort Collins
Tom Long, Summit County Commissioner
Matt Baker, director of Environment Colorado
Tom Clark, executive vice president of the Metro Denver Economic Development Corporation
Former U.S. Senator Gary Hart, the Wirth Chair Professor at the University of Colorado-Denver
Gail Klapper, director of the Colorado Forum
Pat Vincent, president of the Public Service Company of Colorado (an Xcel Energy company).
Al Yates, former president of Colorado State University
The principal sponsors of the Agenda 21 takeover of Colorado includes the Denver Water Board, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Pat Stryker, the City of Aspen, BP America, the Koch brothers and the Rockefeller Family Fund.
Because of the Colorado Climate Change and theirunwarranted influence, Colorado farmers are losing more and more of their farmland. The State Legislature and the Colorado Supreme Court are forcing Colorado farmers to forsake the use of well water in the irrigation of their crops during a period of prolonged drought. They have ordered the shutdown of 440 wells. Colorado farm land is drying up, crop yield is down and many farmers are facing ruination. This is classic Agenda 21 in which the only ones who should be able to farm in rural areas are the large corporate farms and the government. Under this group it is illegal to trap rain water, reuse irrigation water and 50% of all farmland cannot be tilled under their proposals. We are talking about the complete destruction of Colorado farming and the absolute installment of Agenda 21 policies in the state.
Colorado Gun Confiscation
Colorado is also the site of some of the most contentious gun control legislation in the country. These same forces are going after the guns of Colorado residents. Two state legislators have already been recalled and removed from office for supporting the anti-Second Amendment forces of these Agenda 21 groups.
Senator Evie Hudak has been one of the principals trying to ban guns in Colorado. Subsequently there have been efforts to recall this third anti-gun politician. Rather than face a recall election, Hudak abruptly resigned. Hudak is a piece of work. She is despised by Second Amendment supporters for having callously dismissed the testimony of a rape survivor during a legislative hearing in an extreme example of depraved indifference.
In an effort to get Hudak recalled, Colorado activists have experienced extreme harassment, even stalking, with the tacit approval of local law enforcement,
Activist, Mike McAlpine, who headed up the Hudak recall effort, stated that ”We have multiple cars monitoring us at our offices and filming us from the parking lot.” McAlpine went on to say that “This is not a one-off event. We hold sign-and-drive events on the sidewalks near to busy intersections, and we hold signs inviting people to pull over and sign the petition. Our opponents have taken to blocking us: as cars pull in, they run up to the driver’s side door and physically stand next to the door so that the person inside cannot open the door and come outside.”
McAlpine further stated that “… opponents have formed human chains in order to block anyone who wants to sign. “They yell at the person while they’re at the table trying to sign, or blow an airhorn in their ear. There have been a half-dozen examples of that. In addition, when we go out to knock on doors and present the petition, they will follow us down the sidewalk and scream and yell.”
This is where this gets very interesting. The Climate Change Project is involved and they are using their thug contacts, which helped to propel Obama into the White house.
These radical leftist groups have poured a lot of money into the state. "Legal filings reveal that the Democracy Defense Fund, which opposed the recall, received $25,000 from the National Education Association, $10,000 from SEIU, and $5,000 from the Colorado AFL-CIO. Records show that, by yesterday, Democracy Defense Fund had received $120,000."
Colorado Law Enforcement Runs Interference for the Agenda 21 Forces Invading Colorado
McAlpine states that local law enforcement refuses to respond to the allegations of harassment , intimidation and stalking. He further states that “Our City Hall and the Department of Motor Vehicles, both of which are public institutions. The police have escorted our people off of those locations with the explicit reason that they would arrest us if we came back because we were asking government employees for signatures, and that is illegal.” Yet, other groups are permitted to circulated petitions in the same proximity. What we have here is a case of the police protecting the illegal harassment activities of the anti-gun forces in Colorado. Meanwhile,McAlpine states that “We stay 100 feet from the entrance to be approximately safe, “nonetheless, the city has deployed the police to escort us off the premises with the direct threat that they will arrest us next time.”
The Agenda 21 forces are ruining farm land, lessening crop production, denying lawful access to water and breaking the law in opposing the pro Second Amendment supporters and their legitimate political activities.
Colorado is a beta test for the rest of the nations. If the Koch brothers and their Agenda 21 allies get their way in Colorado, they will undoubtedly unleash this tyranny across the country.

The AMERICANS strongly believe that life, liberty, citizenship and the pursuit of happiness are the unalienable RIGHTS of every American Citizen that cannot be taken or transferred. However, not until We the People become brutally frank with ourselves and with each other will the Constitution be taken off the shelf and once again become operational. Only then can the Republic can be restored and preserved in its original ordained Constitutional Power and form.
We The People have suffered enormously since 1913 under the combined rule of two domineering political parties of 537 elected politicians (100 Senators, 435 Representatives, the President/Vice President) along with those they have appointed. Tax and Spend, along with whatever it takes to rule, is the quest of one of the domineering parties.
In the opposing party, weak backbones, failing to stand up and lead for what a majority of citizen voters want, coupled with the elite of the party stealth-fully blending in with the tax and spend party, have destructively allowed the confiscation of far too much of the wages and retirement incomes from the citizens who pay income taxes.
These facts are now becoming more recognized with the most recent dastardly additions of: countless political deceptions, lies, national economic destruction, purposeful job-killing, the stealthful demise of America’s middle class, no Administration help for the massive unemployment of Black Americans plus the politically purposeful illegal alien invasion of the United States. Along with forty percent of the people within the fifty state borders who are receiving food stamps.
This all is treason to each separate state and to the citizens within the several states and it is perpetuated by the elected and appointed inside the Washington DC beltway.
The Constitution requires that all laws must be faithfully executed, but far too many are not and have not been – – – specifically by the Executive Branch. Nor has the Oversight Power of Congress been exercised to ensure Executive Leadership enforcement of United States laws.
These self-serving political failures have become destructive to the well-being, liberty and happiness of most American citizens. It must be recognized that “New Guards” for future personal safety and National Security must peacefully be put into place by citizens beginning with votes at the ballot box.
Failed leadership can no longer stand if the Constitution and the Republic are to be preserved for our children and all future generations.
A deep look has been taken into the several national crises by “The Americans” leadership who care greatly about the Republic, the People and the Constitution. Necessary and workable solutions have been developed to help solve and fix what has without question stunted our Nation’s ability to clearly, legally and peacefully function as a Constitutional Republic.
KEY NATIONAL ISSUES that must be solved if the separate and collective States of The United States of America are to become economically solvent, remain peaceful and nationally secure are:
The Constitution of the United States as originally established and amended will remain in absolute and total effect. The original XIII Amendment as written and ratified is an operational Amendment and will be adhered to immediately. (The original XIII Amendment was falsely hidden by less than honorable men of the times). Congress shall make all laws necessary for carrying into execution the Powers authorized in the Constitution and that all bills for raising revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives. Constant Congressional leadership oversight will be maintained at all times.All Laws requiring Executive action will be faithfully executed upon receipt from Congress by the President and appropriate departments and selected agencies of Government under the President’s sworn responsibility and authority.
A strong National Defense of well-trained Active Duty, Guard and Reserve Forces maintained with proper equipment that can deter any enemy activism, or fight and win if deterrence fails will be assured by both the House and Senate of the US Congress for the protection of “We the People” and the preservation of the Constitution and the Republic. Readiness at all times will include a nuclear capability to win if Congress declares war against an enemy aggressor. The United States Military will in no way be used against United States Citizens. To do so will trigger expeditious Congressional actions to immediately and permanently remove anyone exercising such orders from elected or appointed office.
The United States Government cannot rebound from the man-made economic crises without satisfactory employment for a majority of American citizens. In turn, satisfactory and sustainable employment for American citizens simply cannot be achieved with the excessive tax rates that now exist for US businesses and the American people.All political plundering of the people’s wealth via taxation will be stopped. Our banking system and wealth management have been corrupted with the 1913 establishment of the Federal Reserve System, placing monetary and economic control in the hands of a few (now partisan) individuals.The Federal Reserve System will be abolished and all US Government financial and economic functions will be turned over to the US Treasury, including the coining and printing of currency and the issuing of currency. US green-back bills will be printed and a one –for- one exchange to replace Federal Reserve notes will take place.
The IRS will immediately be abolished and that form of US government taxation will cease and desist. A zero-interest National Debt will be established at the US Treasury and a GDP annual growth limit not to exceed 3% will be tied to the previous year GDP growth. A transition to a “fair or flat” tax must be accomplished as a priority.
The Illegal Alien Invasion of the United States will be stopped with a Secured Borders Double Fence on The US Southern Border and more Border Guards stationed on the Northern Border. All US borders will be further controlled and severe penalties (financial and incarceration) for employers who hire illegal aliens. Foreign countries will have named financial and trade restriction obligations to the United States for all of their citizens who come over US Borders illegally. There will be absolutely no jobs, no social services, no welfare nor medical services allowed to be provided to illegal alien invaders. (Emergency medical care only will be provided until they are deported to home from which departed). American jobs are for US citizens, returning military veterans, part time high school students and the elderly. When US employers cannot find workers and can fully justify seeking foreign workers, Government permission will be granted for hiring temporary foreign workers.
The DHS with functions for national security and FEMA for emergencies have both grown far beyond the intentions of reasonable and responsible leadership control, budgeting, manpower, equipment and facilities. Deceptive political intentions for the potential use of facilities, weapons, massive purchases of ammunition plus military-type vehicles and railroad cars are greatly objectionable to American citizens and an insult to the economic deficit of the Nation.America’s leadership needs to be well-versed with the Active Military, County Sheriffs, Local Law Enforcement and National Guard overall capabilities within the continental limits of the United States that can handle any and all emergency situations, foreign or domestic, that might be faced. The DHS will be disbanded and certain functions will be merged into the Department of Defense (DOD) and the Department of Interior (DOI).The FEMA name will be changed to “The National Emergency Agency” (TNEA) and manpower will be greatly reduced and merged into the DOI to be used for national emergency situations only. Their budget and emergency dispatch activities in the east, central and western parts of the country will be managed through the three numbered Air Forces of the Air Force Reserve Command.All weapons, munitions and military-type vehicles will be transferred to the DOD immediately. All holding and or compound-type facilities will be closed and transferred permanently to local governments for non-detention uses only.
The Department of Energy will be abolished and certain specified oversight functions would be moved to the Department of Commerce.
The Department of Education will be abolished and its functions and all funding responsibility will be returned to each individual state, territory and the District of Columbia.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will be abolished with responsibilities and functions removed to each individual state. Conflicts will be resolved at the Department of Commerce while working with the states.
In addition, selected Agencies will be moved from the National Capitol area and disbursed into the interior for cost-effective and long-term security reasons as well as seeking more diversified hiring of high quality civilian personnel throughout a larger portion of the Nation. (Rust-belt areas of high unemployment in the mid-west and other locations of far greater physical expansion capability will be given priority consideration for these moves and jobs.
The partisan and destructive Democrat Affordable Health Care Plan will be repealed and pre-2009 Medicare Programs will be fully reconstituted. Necessary changes and revisions to the existing Social Security System to ensure self-funding.
The Executive order that allows unions to exist in government and do collective bargaining in any and all tax-payer funded government jobs will be rescinded.
It will be the policy and understanding within the entire Republic to recognize each County Sheriff as the Elected Senior Law Enforcement Officer in each respective County and that a well-regulated militia, if formed, will be responsive to his Constitutional Sworn Oath as necessary requirements for security of a free state.
The United Nations will be defunded from the excessive monetary proportions US taxpayers have been forced to fund and a strong effort will be made to move this overbearing activity out of the United States. Politicians must come to realize that no United Nations deliberations can override the US Constitution.
Education, kindergarten through grade twelve, is a fundamental right for American school-age children and is a responsibility of county or city taxpayers to insure funding for that right. Citizen school children in far too many public schools have been denied that fundamental right to an education due to handicaps in classroom and interferences caused by countless non-English speaking children plus overcrowding and scarce tax dollars used to accommodate illegal alien school children. In addition to US Borders becoming secure, the 5 to 4 decision by the Burger Supreme Court that allowed all who choose to attend American taxpayer-funded schools regardless of citizenship will be revisited using Chief Justice Burger’s dissenting opinion as grounds for new litigation.
Begin a systematic process to reorganize the Department of Defense into an organization of National Security that can prepare us for today and tomorrow with “forward strategies” that secure America.
It is the general consensus of The Americans Project that If the Republican Party does not hold the line in the US House of Representatives to secure the Southern US Border, plus demand existing immigration laws be faithfully executed by the Executive Branch, then stop all Senate Immigration Reform and also stand firm for defunding Obama-care, the results will be the demise of the Republican Party in the 2014 and 2016 elections.
The 2008 and 2012 Presidential elections were lost because many Republican and Independent voters stayed home. There must be Honest National Leadership in place for the America First voters who care about the Constitution, the Republic and a secure future for their children.
Independent Constitutional Leadership selected by The Americans Project will be that Leadership. It will also become more evident to the voters that the course the Democrats have planned for America is destructive far beyond the imagination.
This nation is being torn apart daily as the crises facts become known. Also most disturbing to Americans who care is the fact many are not confident We the People have a Constitutional Government in place because to this date absolutely no one has seen one document verifying Constitutional qualification of the person occupying the White House.
Congress ignores all petitions for a redress of grievances and the Judiciaries at all levels of government have dismissed every attempt at addressing a legal option. The Democrat Party leadership signed two separate and different documents certifying eligibility to run for office as well as re-election eligibility.
This is pure and simple elected and appointed sworn politicians run amok. Enough is enough. If the United States of America and the separate states are to survive these greedy self-serving destructive political onslaughts, new leadership in existing elective offices is a must for every citizen.
Our government (all branches) of, by and for the people has lost control and has led us down a very destructive path of tyranny, ineptness, corruption, cover-ups and deceit. We have to a degree lost the necessary checks and balances designed to provide an essential balance of power.
That has led to a far-reaching federal government and an infringement on states’ rights. We must save the Republic and the country before we get to the point of no return. A National Call to Action is required by all of us to get our country on track! God save the Republic!

The Fed's Catch 22 just got catchier. While most attention in the recently released FOMC minutes fell on the return of the taper as a possibility even as soon as December (making the November payrolls report the most important ever, ever, until the next one at least), a less discussed issue was the Fed's comment that it would consider lowering the Interest on Excess Reserves to zero as a means to offset the implied tightening that would result from the reduction in the monthly flow once QE entered its terminal phase (for however briefly before the plunge in the S&P led to the Un-taper). After all, the Fed's policy book goes, if IOER is raised to tighten conditions, easing it to zero, or negative, should offset "tightening financial conditions", right? Wrong. As the FT reports leading US banks have warned the Fed that should it lower IOER, they would be forced to start charging depositors.
In other words, just like Europe is already toying with the idea of NIRP (and has been for over a year, if still mostly in the rhetorical and market rumor phase), so the Fed's IOER cut would also result in a negative rate on deposits which the FT tongue-in-cheekly summarizes "depositors already have to cope with near-zero interest rates, but paying just to leave money in the bank would be highly unusual and unwelcome for companies and households."
If cutting IOER was as much of an easing move as the Fed believes, banks should be delighted – after all, according to the Fed's guidelines it would mean that the return on their investments (recall that all US banks slowly but surely became glorified, TBTF prop trading hedge funds since Glass Steagall was repealed, and why the Volcker Rule implementation is virtually guaranteed to never happen) would increase. And yet, they are not:
Executives at two of the top five US banks said a cut in the 0.25 per cent rate of interest on the $2.4tn in reserves they hold at the Fed would lead them to pass on the cost to depositors.
Banks say they may have to charge because taking in deposits is not free: they have to pay premiums of a few basis points to a US government insurance programme.
“Right now you can at least break even from a revenue perspective,” said one executive, adding that a rate cut by the Fed “would turn it into negative revenue – banks would be disincentivised to take deposits and potentially charge for them”.
Other bankers said that a move to negative rates would not only trim margins but could backfire for banks and the system as a whole, as it would incentivise treasury managers to find higher-yielding, riskier assets.
“It’s not as if we are suddenly going to start lending to [small and medium-sized enterprises],” said one. “There really isn’t the level of demand, so the danger is that banks are pushed into riskier assets to find yield.”
All of the above is BS: lending has never been a concern for the Fed because if it was, then one could scrap QE right now as an absolute faiure. Recall that as we showed recently, the total amount of loans and leases in commercial US banks has been unchanged since Lehman, with the only rise in deposits coming thanks to the fungible liquidity injected by the Fed.
TOTAL DEPOSITS 7.3 TRILLION – LOANS 7.3 TRILLION
TOTAL DEPOSITS 9.5 TRILLION – LOANS 7.3 TRILLION
TOTAL BANK RESERVES 2.2 TRILLION
Furthermore, contrary to what the hypocrite banker said that "the danger is that banks are pushed into riskier assets to find yield”, banks are already in the riskiest assets: just look at what JPM was doing with its hundreds of billions in excess deposits, which originated as Fed reserves on its books – we explained the process of how the Fed's reserves are used to push the market higher most recently in "What Shadow Banking Can Tell Us About The Fed's "Exit-Path" Dead End."
What the real danger is, is that once the Fed lowers IOER and there is a massive outflow of deposits, that banks which have used the excess deposits as initial margin and collateral on marginable securities to chase risk to record highs (as JPM's CIO explicitly and undisputedly did) that there would be an avalanche of selling once the negative rate deposit outflow tsunami hit.
Needless to say, the only offset would be if the proceeds from the deposits outflows were used to invest in stocks instead of staying inert in some mattress or, worse (if only from the Fed's point of view) purchase inert assets like gold or Bitcoin.
Which brings us back to the first sentence and the Fed's now massive Catch 22: on one hand, should the Fed taper, rates will surge and stocks will once again plunge, as they did, in early summer, just to teach the evil, non-appeasing Fed a lesson.
On the other hand, should the Fed cut IOER as a standalone move or concurrently to offset the tapering pain, banks will crush depositors by cutting rates, depositors will pull their money from banks en masse, and banks will have no choice but to close on a record levered $2.2 trillion in margined risk position.
When the banks start charging depositors, watch the Bankers start massive investments in Bitcions, which will be followed by many disgruntled depositors, resulting in a massive price increase in bitcoins. When it’s high enough the bankers will cash out leaving behind massive losses for the remaining bitcoins holders.

I just spent two hours today with Bitcoin expert Trace Mayer and Vitalik Buterin, head writer atBitcoinMagazine.com, who have been in San Francisco for a couple of days.
It's always a pleasure to talk to Trace, who I consider one of the foremost Bitcoin experts. He bought a ton of bitcoins at 25 cents (and lower). I asked him if he was a billionaire yet, and he just smiled.
During our meeting he outlined the fascinating supply and demand dynamics of Bitcoin. There are currently 12 million bitcoins outstanding but Trace makes the case that the actual number of bitcoins in the float is much smaller.
For example, he believes that most of the bitcoins that the FBI grabbed at the time of Ross Ulbricht's arrest were not bitcoins that belonged to Ulbricht, but were coins that belonged to active buyers and sellers on Silk Road. Thus, these active coins are now in the hands of the FBI and are out of the float.
But more intriguing, Trace tells me he believes that between 3 million to 6 million of bitcoins will never trade again, because they were purchased early on and those who purchased them have forgotten the passwords to gain access to them. Thus, the true Bitcoin float maybe only between 6 million and 9 million bitcoins.
Given the amount of hedge fund money that is now entering the Bitcoin arena (He told me that at a meeting he attended in NYC that a Goldman Sachs analyst was even in attendance studying how GS can get into the Bitcoin game.), Trace believes that Bitcoin is headed to $3,500. A trader friend of mine thinks it will head to $10,000, before it crashes to zero.
I continue to believe that Bitcoin has many of the aspects of a pump and dump scheme and agree with Peter Schiff that it is Tulipmania 2.0, but I don't think the last tulip has been sold.
It is a very risky trade, but there is probably more upside here.
In the EPJ Daily Alert, I will have more details about Bitcoin and what Trace told me about when he plans to start selling and why. It's great timing advice for Bitcoin traders. LET THE BUYER BEWARE!

Longstanding Pentagon operations reflect a black hole of unaccountability. Reuters published a two-part report. In July, it discussed the Defense Department's "payroll quagmire."
It's bureaucracy is stifling. It's "unyielding," said Reuters. Active duty and retired military personal are routinely cheated. Pay errors are widespread.
Correcting "or just explaining them can test even the most persistent soldiers." Weeks or months pass without resolution.
Some personnel are cheated on pay. Others are penalized for overpayments. Their earnings are "drastically cut" unfairly. Precise figures are impossible to calculate.
At issue is "the Defense Department's jury-rigged network of mostly incompatible computer systems for payroll and accounting, many of them decades old, long obsolete, and unable to communicate with each other," said Reuters.
"The Defense Finance and Accounting Services (DFAS) still uses a half-century-old computer language that is largely unable to communicate with the equally outmoded personnel management systems employed by each of the military services."
A December 2012 Government Accountability Office (GAO) report revealed unaccountable accounting. No way exists to assure correct amounts are paid. Errors can't be tracked.
Pentagon accounting reflects epic failure. Nothing is done "to keep track of its money," said Reuters.
US law requires annual audits of all federal agencies. The Pentagon alone never complied. It's accounting is in too disarray to do so. It remains unaccountable.
In May 2012, then Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said:
"DOD, I'm sorry to say, is the only major federal agency that cannot pass an audit today."
It bears repeating. It's a black hole of unaccountability. It literally wastes trillions of dollars.
It uses about 2,200 error-prone computer systems. Billions of dollars are spent operating them. They manage finances, human resources, logistics, property, and weapons acquisitions. According to former Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England:
"There are thousands and thousands of systems. I'm not sure anybody knows how many there are" or how many are in use.
The Pentagon is the world's largest property owner. It has more than 5,000 sites in 41 countries.
It's the world's largest polluter. It's exempt from environmental regulations and wildlife treaties.
It poisons the earth. Its desecration is virtually unreported. It's responsible for genocide and ecocide.
It's destroying the planet's ability to sustain life. It spends trillions of dollars doing so.
On November 18, Reuters headlined "Behind the Pentagon's doctored ledgers, a running tally of epic waste."
Since 1996, DOD was never held accountable for $8.5 trillion. On September 10, 2001, then Defense Secretary Rumsfeld said:
"According to some estimates, we cannot track $2.3 trillion in transactions." At issue is massive waste, fraud and abuse.
Sweetheart deals, bribes and kickbacks are commonplace. So is routine over-billing. Unaccountability is standard practice.
Jeff St. Clair's book titled "Grand Theft Pentagon: Tales of Corruption and Profiteering in the War on Terror" exposed massive corruption and war profiteering.
DOD has a virtual blank check. Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Bechtel, Halliburton, the Carlyle Group, Blackwater USA (now ACADEMI), and other Pentagon favorites cash in hugely.
They do it at taxpayers' expense. They sacrifice peace, equity and justice in the process.
From White House and Pentagon war rooms to warprofiteer board rooms, "Grand Theft Pentagon" explains America's out-of-control imperial agenda. War on humanity reflects it.
Trillions of dollars are spent waging it. According to Reuters, DFAS fudged accounts reflect standard practice.
"Former military service officials say record-keeping at the operational level throughout the services is rife with made-up numbers to cover lost or missing information."
Warnings are systematically ignored. According to GOA's December 2011 report:
Unaccountable accounting "without documentation (masks) much larger problems."
DOD "chronic(ally) fail(s) to keep track of its money – how much it has, how much it pays out, and how much is wasted or stolen," said Reuters.
It's entire record keeping system is dysfunctional. Nothing effective is done to fix it.
Pay errors reflect a small portion of huge sums "annually disappear(ing) into (DOD's) vast bureaucracy."
"(T)he Pentagon is largely incapable of keeping track of its vast stores of weapons, ammunition and other supplies."
It spends huge amounts on more of what's not needed. It amassed a half trillion dollar plus backlog of unaudited vendor contracts.
How much is spent for goods and services isn't known. Operations are rife with waste and fraud. Abuses go undiscovered for years. Accountability is entirely lacking.
DOD can't "tally its accounts," said Reuters. Congressional 2009 legislation requires annual DOD audits by 2017. Reuters said DOD won't meet its deadline.
"The main reason is rooted in the Pentagon's continuing reliance on a tangle of thousands of disparate, obsolete, largely incompatible accounting and business-management systems."
Many date from the 1970s. They use outmoded computer languages on old mainframes.
They use antiquated file systems. It's nearly impossible to search for data. What's gotten is "corrupted and erroneous." According to a former defense official:
"It's like if every electrical socket in the Pentagon had a different shape and voltage."
Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates called DOD operations "an amalgam of fiefdoms without centralized mechanisms to allocate resources, track expenditures, and measure results."
"My staff and I learned that it was nearly impossible to get accurate information and answers to questions such as 'How much money did you spend' and 'How many people do you have?' "
Tens of billions of dollars were spent upgrading systems. Many new ones failed. They were scrapped altogether. Doing so compounded waste.
DOD's mess is its own making. Unaccountability lets massive waste, fraud and abuse persist. According to Reuters:
"The secretary of defense's office and the heads of the military and DFAS have for years knowingly signed off on false entries."
Congress largely ignores abusive practices. A single DFAS Columbus, Ohio office "made at least $1.59 trillion – yes, trillion – in errorsâ€¦in financial reports for the Air Force in 2009," said Reuters.
"Those amounts far exceeded the Air Force's total budget for that year" and then some.
Dysfunctional Pentagon accounting is reflected in Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) operations.
It buys, stores and ships Pentagon supplies. They range from aircraft parts to uniform zippers. "It has way too much stuff," said Reuters.
It pays way too much for it. According to DLA process and planning directorate head Sonya Gish, no system tracks whether vast quantities of supplies received are put in correct bins.
Failure to do so makes inventorying them impossible. Nothing is done to track or estimate employee theft losses.
In 2004, the Pentagon was mandated to begin using a modern labeling system. Doing so would enable knowing what supplies are available in what amounts for what service branch.
"To date," said Reuters, "DLA ignored the directive." Deputy distribution director William Budden said doing so would exceed benefits. DLA's existing systems are adequate, he claimed. Evidence shows otherwise.
Many obsolete weapons and munitions remain in inventory. Ammunition manager Keith Byers said they sit year after year because "it's cheaper for the military to store (them)."
"What's counterproductive is that what you're looking at (are) stocks that are going to be destroyed eventually anyway."
Older headline-grabbing reports focused on $600 toilet seats and $7,600 coffee makers, etc. They're minor compared to countless billions wasted, stolen or otherwise disappeared.
Many billions more were wasted on dysfunctional computer systems. In the last decade alone, DOD spent trillions of dollars for goods and services. According to Reuters:
"How much of that money is wasted in overpayments to contractors, or was never spent and never remitted to the Treasury, is a mystery."
"Spotty monitoring of contracts is one reason Pentagon personnel and contractors are able to siphon off taxpayer dollars through fraud and theft – amounting to billions of dollars in losses, according to numerous GAO reports."
"In many cases, perpetrators were caught only after outside law-enforcement agencies stumbled onto them, or outsiders brought them to the attention of prosecutors."
A footnote in the Navy's 2012 financial report "acknowledge(d) that it has a material internal control weakness in that it does not reconcile its" numbers with the Treasury's.
It claims it's working to correct the problem. It's longstanding. It persists.
Congressional budget debates largely ignore massive Pentagon waste, fraud and abuse. Lip service at most is paid to it.
Advancing America's imperium matters most. Pedal-to-the-metal unaudited spending continues out-of-control.

By Stephen Lendman
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a trade deal from hell. It's a stealth corporate coup d'etat.
It's a giveaway to banksters. It's a global neoliberal ripoff. It's a business empowering Trojan horse. It's a freedom and ecosystem destroying nightmare.
The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) calls it "a secretive, multi-national trade agreement that threatens to extend restrictive intellectual property (IP) laws across the globe and rewrite international rules on its enforcement."
More on TPP below. New York Times editors support it. Two decades ago, they endorsed NAFTA.
On January 1, 1994, its destructive life began. It's anti-labor, anti-environment, anti-consumer and anti-democratic.
Corporate giants love it. Why not? They wrote it. Hundreds of pages of one-size-fits-all rules benefit them.
They override domestic laws. A race to the bottom followed. NAFTA was a disastrous experiment. In November 1993, New York editors headlined "The 'Great Debate' Over NAFTA," saying:
The laboriously constructed agreement to phase out trade barriers among the US, Mexico and Canada, which this page has strongly supported, is likely to have a positive, though small, impact on US living standards and provide a modest boost to the Mexican economy.
Some American jobs would be lost to cheaper Mexican labor, other jobs would be gained because American exports would increase as Mexico's high tariffs gradually disappeared.
Economics aside, Nafta's defeat would suggest that the US had abandoned its historical commitment to free trade and would thus discourage other Latin and South American countries that have moved toward more market-oriented economies in the expectation of freer world trade.
So-called "free trade" is one-sided. It isn't fair. NAFTA proponents promised tens of thousands of newly created US jobs.
Ordinary famers would export their way to wealth. Mexican living standards would rise. Economic opportunities would reduce regional immigration to America.
NAFTA's promises never materialized. Reality proved polar opposite hype. A decade later, about a million US jobs were lost.
America's Mexican trade deficit alone cost around 700,000 jobs by 2010.
Official government data show nearly five million US manufacturing disappeared since 1994.
NAFTA alone wasn't responsible. It reflected broken promises, lost futures, and other trade deals from hell to follow. TPP stands out. It's NAFTA on steroids.
Since 2008, multiple negotiating rounds were held. They continue secretly. Twelve nations are involved.
They include America, Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam. Others are invited to join.
At issue is agreeing on unrestricted trade in goods, services, rules of origin, trade remedies, sanitary and phytosanitary measures, technical barriers, government procurement and competition policies, and intellectual property (IP).
It's about eliminating fundamental freedoms. It's circumventing sovereign independent rights. Corporate power brokers want unchallenged control.
They want global rules and standards rewritten. They want supranational powers. They want them overriding national sovereignty. They want investor rights prioritized over public ones.
They already rule the world. Imagine giving them more power. Imagine no way to stop them.
Imagine a duplicitous president. Obama's in lockstep with their wish list. He intends giving them everything they want.
Public Citizen is independent. It's our voice. Its work entails "ensur(ing) that all citizens are represented in the halls of power."
Its Global Trade Watch (GTW) monitors TPP developments. It calls it "a stealthy policy being pressed by corporate America. (It's) a dream of the 1%." It'll:
offshore millions of American jobs,
free the banksters from oversight,
ban Buy America policies needed to create green (and many other) jobs (as well as) rebuild out economy,
decrease access to medicine,
flood the US with unsafe food and products,
and empower corporations to attack our environment and health safeguards.
Hyped benefits are fake. Reality is polar opposite what corporate shysters claim. Everything accruing from TPP benefits them. It does so by undermining what matters most to ordinary people.
Lori Wallach heads GTW. Ben Beachy is research director. Last June, they headlined their New York Times op-ed"Obama's Covert Trade Deal."
He's committed to open government, he claims. His policies reflect otherwise. He's negotiating TPP secretly.
It's "the most significant international commercial agreement since the" World Trade Organization's 1995 creation, said Wallach and Beachy.
Congress has exclusive "terms of trade" authority. Obama systematically refuses repeated congressional requests to release the entire draft agreement being negotiated.
He "denied requests from members to attend (sessions) as observers." He "revers(ed) past practice" snubbing them.
He "rejected demands by outside groups" to release the draft text. George Bush never went that far.
Obama's "wall of secrecy" had one exception. About "600 trade 'advisors,' dominated by representatives of big business," got access to what Congress was denied.
TPP overrides American laws. It requires changing them. Otherwise trade sanctions on US exports can be imposed.
Wall Street loves TPP. It prohibits banning risky financial products. It lets banksters operate any way they want without oversight.
Congress has final say. Both houses will vote on TPP. Ahead of doing so, they'll have access to its full text.
Why later? Why not now? Why not earlier? Why not without enough time for discussion and public debate?
Members won't get enough time to examine TPP carefully. Maintaining secrecy as long as possible prevents public debate.
Obama wants TPP fast-tracked. He wants it approved by yearend. Until March, Ron Kirk was Obama's trade representative.
He was remarkably candid. He said revealing TPP's text would raise enormous opposition. Doing so might make adopting it impossible.
According to Wallach and Beachy:
Whatever one thinks about 'free trade,' (TPP secrecy) represents a huge assault on the principles and practice of democratic governance.
That is untenable in the age of transparency, especially coming from an administration that is otherwise so quick to trumpet its commitment to open government.
On October 30, a newly formed Friends of TPP caucus was formed. Four House co-chairman head it. They include Reps. David Reichert (R. WA), Charles Boustany (R. LA), Ron Kind (D. WI) and Gregory Meeks (D. NY).
They sound like earlier NAFTA supporters. They claim TPP is important for US jobs, exports and economic growth. They lied saying so.
Wallach commented separately. TPP is hugely hugely destructive, she said. It's more than about trade. It's a "corporate Trojan horse." It has 29 chapters. Only five relate to trade.
The others "either handcuff our domestic governments, limit food safety, environmental standards, financial regulation, energy and climate policy, or establish new powers for corporations."
They promote offshoring jobs to low-wage countries. They ban Buy America. Corporations can do whatever they please. Instead of investing domestically, they can use "our tax dollars" to operate abroad.
They can exploit national resources freely. They'll have "rights for min(ed) (commodities), oil, gas" and others "without approval."
TPP includes all sorts of "worrisome issues relating to Internet freedom."
It provides a back door to earlier failed legislation. It resurrects SOPA, PIPA, ACTA and CISPA provisions. It tramples on fundamental freedoms and national sovereignty.
"Think about all the things that would be really hard to get into effect as a corporation in public, a lot of them rejected here and in the other 11 countries, and that is what's bundled in to the TPP," said Wallach.
And every country would be required to change its laws domestically to meet these rules.
The binding provision is each country shall ensure the conformity of domestic laws, regulations and procedures.
Negotiations are secret. Nothing is discussed publicly. Details leaked out. TPP includes hugely unpopular policies. It forces them on member countries.
It overrides domestic laws protecting people and ecosystems. It's predatory capitalism at its worst writ large. Obama fully supports it. Lawmakers hadn't seen it until last year.
They got access to a single chapter. Examining it is severely restricted. Their office is denied a copy. They alone can read it. Their staff is denied permission.
They can't take detailed notes. They can't publicly discuss what's in it. Technical language makes it hard to understand what they read.
Congressional approval is likely. Lobby pressure is intense. "Everything is bought and sold," said Wallach. "Honor is no exception."
The reason there's no deal so far "is because a lot of other countries are standing up to the worst of US corporate demands," Wallach explained.
For how long remains to be seen. If TPP is adopted, public interest no longer will matter. The worst of all possible worlds will replace it. Corporate rights will supersede human ones. A global race to the bottom will intensify.
Signatory countries will be legally bound to support loss of personal freedoms. Sovereign laws won't protect against poisoned food, water and air.
Ecosystems will be destroyed. Millions more jobs will shift from developed to under or less developed nations.
Corporate power will grow more exponentially. Fundamental human and civil rights may erode altogether. Not according to Times editors.
On November 5, they headlined "A Pacific Trade Deal."
A dozen nations want a deal by yearend, they said. They want it to "help all of our economies and strengthen relations between the United States and several important Asian allies."
It bears repeating. TPP is a trade deal from hell. It's a stealth corporate coup d'etat. It's a freedom and ecosystem destroying nightmare. Times editors didn't explain.
They lied to readers. They betrayed them. They repeated their 1993 duplicity. Millions affected understand best.
An October 8 White House press release lied. It called TPP "a comprehensive, next-generation model for addressing both new and traditional trade and investment issues, supporting the creation and retention of jobs and promoting economic development in our countries."
The deepest and broadest possible liberalization of trade and investment will ensure the greatest benefits for countries’ large and small manufacturers, service providers, farmers, and ranchers, as well as workers, innovators, investors, and consumers.
Times editors endorsed what they haven't read. TPP provisions remain secret. Leaked information alone is known.
Times editors willingly accept Obama misinformation as fact. Twenty years ago, they got NAFTA wrong. Here they go again.
They're mindless about secret negotiations. Public concerns don't matter. Corporate interests alone count.
Subverting national sovereignty is OK. So is empowering transnational giants without oversight. They'll be able sue countries for potentially undermining future profits.
Times editors support the worst of corporate excess. Doing so shows which side they're on.
Fundamental freedoms aren't important. Corporate rights drive The Times' agenda. Its editors explained nothing about fast-track authority.
Max Baucus (D. MT) chairs the Senate Finance Committee. He supports fast-tracking. Doing so hands congressional authority to Obama.
Proper hearings are restricted. Debate is limited. Amendments can't be introduced. The Senate can't filibuster. Congress can only vote up or down.
It can happen virtually out of sight and mind. It can happen with scant media coverage. It can happen with none at all. It can become law with practically no public awareness.
Imagine corporate America getting coup d'etat authority with hardly anyone knowing what happened. Imagine the consequences if it does. Imagine today's America becoming worse than ever.
Times editors stressed how Obama wants TPP to be "an example for the rest of the world to follow."
Imagine one more than ever unfit to live in. Imagine a president promising change to believe in promoting it.
Imagine Times editors endorsing what demands condemnation. Imagine not explaining what readers most need to know.
Imagine substituting misinformation for truth and full disclosure. Imagine all the news they call fit to print not fit to read.
A Final Comment
On November 13, Public Citizen headlined "Leaked Documents Reveal Obama Administration Push for Internet Freedom Limits, Terms That Raise Drug Prices in Closed-Door Trade Talks."
"US Demands in Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement Text, Published Today by WikiLeaks, Contradict Obama Policy and Public Opinion at Home and Abroad."
TPP's leaked text reveals Obama demands limiting Internet freedom. He wants restricted access to lifesaving medicines.
He wants all TPP signatory countries bound the the same deplorable rules.
He lied claiming TPP reduces health care costs. It has nothing to do with advancing online freedom as he promised. It's polar opposite on both counts.
According to Public Citizen:
It is clear from the text obtained by WikiLeaks that the US government is isolated and has lost this debate.
Our partners don't want to trade away their people's health. Americans don't want these measures either.
Obama's in the pocket of Big Pharma. He's a Wall Street tool. He represents other corporate interests. He spurns popular ones. He lies claiming otherwise. He repeatedly avoids truth and full disclosure.
He lied about Obamacare. It's an abomination. It's a scam. It's a scheme to enrich insurers and other healthcare giants.
TPP is a global scam. It's an assault on fundamental freedoms.
Reports indicate around half the House members strongly oppose it. Others lean that way. According to Lori Wallach:
This could be the end of TPP.
All these other countries are like, 'Wait, you have no trade authority and nothing you've promised us means anything. Why would we give you our best deal?’ Why would you be making concessions to the emperor who has no clothes?
It bears repeating. TPP is a trade bill from hell. It's a stealth corporate coup d' etat. Killing it is essential.
The alternative is losing fundamental freedoms. It's destroying national sovereignty. It's making healthcare less affordable. It's undermining what ordinary people value most.

By MARTIN CRUTSINGER AP Economics Writer
Chairman Ben Bernanke said Friday that the Federal Reserve is drafting rules to close large insolvent banks without bringing down the broader financial system, one of many steps regulators must take to prevent another financial crisis.
Bernanke said the absence of a process to deal with systemically important institutions in 2008 left regulators facing the "terrible choices of a bailout or allowing a potentially destabilizing collapse." His comments were made at a conference sponsored by the International Monetary Fund.
The financial overhaul law passed by Congress in 2010 gave regulators better tools to close down large financial institutions, he said. The Fed and other regulators are working to implement those rules now.
"Our continuing challenge is to make financial crises far less likely and, if they happen, far less costly," Bernanke said.
At the IMF conference, Bernanke was asked about whether enormous growth in student loan debt could trigger a future financial crisis. He said that the debt was a drag on the economy but not a threat to the overall financial system.
Student loans prevented many Americans from buying homes or making other big-ticket purchases, he noted. But the bulk of the debt is backed by the federal government, so financial institutions would not be at risk from widespread defaults, he said.
"I don't see it affecting the ability of the financial system any time soon," Bernanke said. "But it is a serious issue and more thought needs to be given to helping people make better choices."
Bernanke did not make any comments during his appearance about current economic conditions or the Fed's interest rate policies.
Sounds to me like some serious cogitation has been going on in the I.M.F. – D.C. sausage factories. Watcha think folks, will they sacrifice the Lamb of Gold? Don’t forget, they can fart longer than we can hold our breath!

Some kind of paradigm changing event in the US is imminent, according to multiple sources. Three US agency sources, two from the Pentagon and one from the CIA, all say something very big is going to happen in the United States but none of them were sure exactly what it will be. The Pentagon had already taken over the FEMA camps and was going to put all the politicians from Washington D.C. there, one source said. Another, at Pentagon Military intelligence, confirmed “there was a lot of activity and confusion within the military,” a sign of something big going on but, he was not sure exactly what.
He added that for some reason all the FEMA coffins had been moved to Puerto Rico and were being displayed on Puerto Rican TV stations. The CIA source, for his part, said they were going to shut down the US power grid on November 11th.
In another sign something unusual was going on the US armed forces radio station in Japan broadcast a statement last week that the “US military did not have a budget for 2014.”
A top level Chinese government representative also reported that an agreement had been reached to release vast amounts of funds to finance a major campaign to end poverty and stop environmental destruction.
After receiving the call from the Chinese source, this writer called to US Embassy in Tokyo, Japan to ask if the government of the United States supported setting up a new development agency to carry out a multi-trillion dollar campaign to end poverty and stop environmental destruction.
In what seems to be a direct reply, a Pentagon military intelligence agent in Japan met this writer and asked if President Barack Obama could be included in the campaign. He said that despite Obama’s “weird metrosexual lifestyle” and despite the fact his father was an American communist and not a Kenyan politician as advertised, they supported Obama because he stopped World War 3 from starting in the Middle East.
In response he was told that if the cabal was defeated by the White Dragon Society and its allies, the US military would receive more funding that it does now and would be asked to help in the campaign to fix the planet. As far as Obama was concerned, the representative was told his fate is up to the American people and the US military industrial complex.
In any case, the United States is under enormous external pressure to get its act together.
The NSA scandal is one example. Here we have a US defector in Russia revealing secrets about US spying on its allies. The result is heavy criticism on the US regime by supposed allies such as the German, French and Spanish governments, a clear sign the Europeans are moving closer to Russia and distancing themselves from the US.
The other big move against the US last week came when Russia sent two strategic nuclear bombers to Venezuela after which Venezuela immediately took over US owned oil rigs in the country.
The Chinese did their bit by announcing they had surrounded the US with nuclear submarines that could annihilate the entire continental United States. They have also been aggressively investing in new energy technology and will pioneer a post-oil world.
In the old oil powers fortress of the Middle East as well, the Russians are continuing to jump into the US vacuum. Turkey, supposedly a NATO country, is negotiation a customs union with Russia, buying missiles from China and rounding up and removing Mossad agents spying on Iran from Turkey. Egypt too is buying missiles and other weapons from Russia and offering the Russians a naval base.
Last week when Israeli forces attacked Syria, the US armed forces immediately informed the Russians of this fact, infuriating the Israelis and making it clear that the United States armed forces are no longer going to fight wars for Israel. As a result that country will have to reach a deal with its neighbours and with Russia if it is to remain a viable entity.
The long term plan, according to an Eastern European Illuminati grandmaster, is to create a loose federation of Muslim states anchored by Turkey at one end and Egypt on the other. In this plan, Israel is expected to eventually become a Jewish autonomous region inside this federation.
The totalitarian rulers of Saudi Arabia, for their part, need to remind themselves of the Arab saying: “One day the stick is in your hand, the next day it is in your ass.”
What all this means is that the oil money from both the Middle East and South America will no longer be recycled into the banks that own the Federal Reserve Board thus dooming the Rockefeller/Bush petrodollar.
That is why the US Congress last week suddenly passed a bill allowing the big US banks to once again create infinite amounts of funny money using derivatives.
Of course the US military is upset about all this but, the answer is that the world wants them to go into Washington D.C. and Wall Street and remove the parasitical gangsters who have caused so much misery to the people of the world, including the American people.
After that, the US military industrial complex will get generous funding to do things like protect endangered species, fight bandits as well helping put to an end to various forms of planetary rape such as over-fishing and the destruction of rain forests. That is exactly what is about to happen, the pentagon and agency sources hint. The sources also say the cabal members and their families, who had planned to hide in underground bases while they killed everybody else, will instead find themselves confined in the FEMA camps. If that does not happen, the noose will only get tighter until it does. The people of the world are sick and tired of the criminal behavior of the US rogue regime.
If the US power grid is shut down on November 11th, it will mean no internet, no TV and no ATMs. If this event does happen, and if it is managed by the good guys, it can thus be used to render impotent two of the cabal’s main weapons, the control of the distribution of money and the use of mass propaganda. The system could then be rebooted minus all the hysterical nonsense and fake news that it has been churning out recently.
The coordinated attempts by cabal slave governments in Japan, the US and the UK to drastically curtail press freedom are signs of cabal desperation, not cabal power. They have lost control of the plot and somehow think they can put the genie back into the bottle by cutting off the truth. That is not going to happen.
The cabal appointed leaders in Canada, the UK and Japan are under attack on multiple fronts. In Canada a corruption scandal is closing in on Bush slave appointee Stephen Harper. In the UK, the passage of a draconian press law has triggered a massive anti-government campaign. In Japan, the gangsters who used to work for the cabal are no longer doing so, meaning the Japanese Parliamentary acting troupe will be reading from a new script. That has already been seen with the announcement last week of joint Japanese Russian military maneuvers. Expect more soon.
The end game of all this will be world peace.
Plus, if we are lucky, and it turns out alien races have been blockading us because of our criminal leadership, once we attain world peace we might be allowed off the planet and we will get the chance to explore the universe. If not, we will just have to work on making this planet really nice and fun.

F. MICHAEL MALOOF
WASHINGTON – Retired Army Maj. Gen. Patrick Brady, recipient of the U.S. military’s highest decoration, the Medal of Honor, as well as other top retired officers, say President Obama’s agenda is decimating the morale of the U.S. ranks to the point members no longer feel prepared to fight or have the desire to win.
“There is no doubt he (Obama) is intent on emasculating the military and will fire anyone who disagrees with him” over such issues as “homosexuals, women in foxholes, the Obama sequester,” Brady told WND.
“They are purging everyone, and if you want to keep your job, just keep your mouth shut,” one source told WND.
Not only are military service members being demoralized and the ranks’ overall readiness being reduced by the Obama administration’s purge of key leaders, colonels – those lined up in rank to replace outgoing generals – are quietly taking their careers in other directions.
Retired Army Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin, who was with Delta Force and later Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence under President George W. Bush, says it is worrying that four-star generals are being retired at the rate that has occurred under Obama.
“Over the past three years, it is unprecedented for the number of four-star generals to be relieved of duty, and not necessarily relieved for cause,” Boykin said.
“I believe there is a purging of the military,” he said. “The problem is worse than we have ever seen.”
Boykin points out that the military adheres to the constitutional requirement of a civilian leadership over the military. As a consequence, officers are not allowed to criticize their civilian leadership, as occurred when Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal was relieved in 2010 of his command of the International Security Assistance Force and commander of U.S. Forces in Afghanistan.
He was relieved due to what has been described as unflattering remarks made about Vice President Joe Biden and other administration officials in a Rolling Stone magazine article. He was recalled to Washington where Obama accepted his resignation as commander in Afghanistan.
Boykin says that because of the fundamental civilian leadership over the military, McCrystal was “appropriately forced to retire.”
Read the words of the Founders, in “America’s God and Country Encyclopedia of Quotations.”
Some officers were involved in adulterous affairs and those situations, Boykin said, also were grounds for dismissal.
Boykin specifically said that because of the civilian-military relationship, he did not see any prospect for a “coup” coming from the military ranks.
“People I’ve spoken to would like to see the military ‘fulfill their constitutional duty and take out the president,’” Boykin said. “Our Constitution puts a civilian in charge of the military and as a result a coup would not be constitutional. You’re not going to see a coup in the military.”
Nevertheless, Boykin said the future of the military is becoming more and more of concern, since colonels who would be generals also are being relieved of duty, if they show that they’re not going to support Obama’s agenda, which critics have described as socialist.
“I talk to a lot of folks who don’t support where Obama is taking the military, but in the military they can’t say anything,” Boykin said.
As a consequence, he said, the lower grades therefore have decided to leave, having been given the signal that there is no future in the military for them.
Boykin referred to recent reports that Obama has purged some 197 officers in the past five years.
These reports suggest these officers were suspected of disloyalty or disagreed with the Obama administration on policy or force-structure issues. As Boykin pointed out, a number of them have been relieved of duty for no given reason.
“Morale is at an unprecedented low,” Boykin said, part of which is due to sequestration.
Sequestration has seriously cut back operational readiness for the military to the point where Boykin said that often they have no ammunition and are unable to conduct training because of the planned cuts.
“These officers want to train for war but are not be allowed to” because of the preoccupation not only with sequestration, but what Boykin said were other concerns surfacing in the military under Obama as commander-in-chief.
He referred specifically to the recent repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” which now allows openly homosexual personnel in the military. In addition, he said the integration of women into the infantry “will reduce readiness of units.” He also was critical of the rules of engagement which he says favor “political correctness over our ability to fight to win.”
“The last time we won an all-out war was in 1944,” Boykin said. “Now, we don’t have the will to win.”
Brady, who was a legendary “Dust Off” air ambulance pilot in Vietnam and detailed his experiences in his book, “Dead Men Flying: Victory in Viet Nam,” said, “The problem is military people will seldom, while on duty, go on the record over such issues, and many will not ever, no matter how true.
“I hear from many off the record who are upset with the current military leadership and some are leaving and have left in the past,” he said.
Brady referred to additional problems in today’s military including “girly-men leadership [and] medals for not shooting and operating a computer. This president will never fight if there is any reason to avoid it and with a helpless military he can just point to our weakness and shrug his shoulders.”
Brady made similar references in a recent article he wrote for WND in which he said “just when you thought the leadership of this government could not get any worse, it does. Never in history has an administration spawned another scandal to cover the current one.”
The reference was to the recent firing of a number of generals to mask “Obama’s serial scandals, all prefaced by lies – Fast and Furious, Benghazi, NSA, IRS” among others.
WND reported that three of the nine firings by Obama this year alone were linked to the controversy surrounding the Sep. 11, 2012, terrorist attack on the CIA special mission in Benghazi, Libya.
In one case, U.S. Army Gen. Carter Ham, who commanded U.S. African Command when the consulate was attacked and four Americans were killed, was highly critical of the decision by the State Department not to send in reinforcements.
Obama has insisted there were no reinforcements available that night.
But Ham contends reinforcements could have been sent in time, and he said he never was given a stand-down order. However, others contend that he was given the order but defied it. He ultimately was relieved of his command and retired.
Now, new information in the Washington Times reveals there were Delta Force personnel in Tripoli at the time of the attack and two members volunteered to be dispatched to Benghazi to assist in protecting the Benghazi compound, contrary to stand-down orders from the State Department.
Another flag officer involved in the Benghazi matter – which remains under congressional investigation – was Rear Adm. Charles Gaouette. He commanded the Carrier Strike Group.
He contends aircraft could have been sent to Libya in time to help the Americans under fire. He later was removed from his post for alleged profanity and making “racially insensitive comments.”
Army Major Gen. Ralph Baker was the commander of the Combined Joint Task Force Horn of Africa at Camp Lemonier in Djibouti, Africa. Baker contended that attack helicopters could have reached the consulate in time on the night of the attack.
“To understand the insufferable assaults on our military and veterans, who should be exempt from political squabbles but are often at the forefront of Obama threats, we need to understand the psyche of the elite in this country led by Obama,” Brady said.
“It is no accident that the president used the Obama sequester and shutdown to punish the military family,” he said. “It is part of his DNA. In fact it is in the psyche of the entire liberal/progressive establishment – the elite. President Clinton outed himself and this ilk when he declared his loathing of the military. Who could believe progressives/liberals care about veterans and military?”
Brady said that some people who fear for the future of the United States believe it needs to be “re-moralized.”
“We cannot survive without increasing patriotism, a youth schooled in the Constitution,” Brady said. “If the uncommon common American is to prevail against the elite, we need to return to the truths of our Constitution.
“We need to realize that this recent assault on the military and veterans is no accident,” Brady added. “It is purposeful. The elite loathe our military, the one sure guarantor of our freedom. These elite – not a shutdown or default – and their assault on the Constitution and our military are the real threat to our future.”
Army Major Gen. Paul E. Vallely similarly has been very vocal in his opposition to the Obama administration.
Vallely said the White House won’t investigate its own officials but finds it easy to fire military commanders “who have given their lives for their country.”
“Obama will not purge a civilian or political appointee because they have bought into Obama’s ideology,” Vallely said. “The White House protects their own. That’s why they stalled on the investigation into Fast and Furious, Benghazi and Obamacare. He’s intentionally weakening and gutting our military, Pentagon and reducing us as a superpower, and anyone in the ranks who disagrees or speaks out is being purged.”
Vallely served in the Vietnam War and retired in 1993 as deputy Commanding General, Pacific Command. Today, he is chairman of the Military Committee for the Center for Security Policy and is co-author of the book “Endgame: The Blueprint for Victory in the War on Terror.”
Duty personnel seem to back up this concern, suggesting that the firings are meant to send a message to “young officers down through the ranks” not to criticize the president or White House politics.

Increasingly, the US government’s many police forces (often state and local ones as well) operate militarily and are trained to treat ordinary citizens as enemies. At the same time, the people from whom the government personnel take their cues routinely describe those who differ from them socially and politically as illegitimate, criminal, even terrorists. Though these developments have separate roots, the post-9/11 state of no-win war against anonymous enemies has given them momentum. The longer it goes on, the more they converge and set in motion a spiral of civil strife all too well known in history, a spiral ever more difficult to stop short of civil war. Even now ordinary Americans are liable to being disadvantaged, hurt or even killed by their government as never before.
Government’s violent treatment of citizens has become generalized and unremarkable. Consider.
This month in Washington DC, Federal police riddled with bullets a woman suffering from post-partum depression who, had she been allowed to live, might have been convicted of reckless driving, at most. She had careened too close to the White House and Capitol, but had harmed no one and her car had stopped. In the same month, California sheriffs’ deputies killed a 13 year-old boy who was carrying a plastic toy rifle. It is not illegal to carry a rifle, never mind a toy one. America did not blink. A half century ago, Alabama sheriff Bull Connor’s use of a mere cattle prod to move marchers from blocking a street had caused a national crisis.
In a casual conversation, a friendly employee of the US Forest Service bemoaned to me that he was on his way to a US Army base, where he and colleagues would practice military tactics against persons who resist regulations. A forester, he had hoped to be Smokey the Bear. Instead, he said, “we are now the Department of Provocation.” In fact every US government agency, and most state and local ones now police their ever burgeoning regulations with military equipment, tactics, and above all with the assumption that they are dealing with people who should not be dealt with any other way.
Modern militarized government stems from the Progressive idea that society must mobilize as for war to achieve “the greater good.” Hence we have “wars” on everything from hunger and drugs and ignorance and global warming. Reality follows rhetoric. Since the health of “the environment” is a matter of life and death, the Environmental Protection Agency must deal with “enemies of the planet” with armored cars, machine guns, and home invasions. Apparently, even the Department of Education has SWAT teams.
The general population is increasingly inured to violence. The latest “Grand Theft” video game, for example, involves torturing a prisoner. Fun. That is only one step beyond the popular TV show “24” in which the audience cheered the hero’s torture of terrorist suspects. Contrast this with Dragnet, the most popular TV cops drama of the 1950s, whose Sergeant Joe Friday knocked on doors and said “yes ma’m, no ma’m.”
But governments, including ours, do not and cannot oppress citizens equally.
Persons who possess the greatest power have the larger opportunity to direct blame and distrust, even mayhem, onto those they like least. Since the mid- 1990s, authoritative voices from Democratic President Bill Clinton to Republican New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, echoed by the media have intoned a familiar litany: America is beset by racism, sexism, homophobia, and religious obscurantism, by domestic abuse, greed, and gun owners. These ills are not so different from those found in backward parts of the world where we fight “extremism” in order to fight terrorism. Indeed these ills argue for fighting extremism, indeed for nation-building in America as well as abroad. Who in America embodies extremism? Who is inherently responsible for social ills, including terrorism? Who will have to be re-constructed? No surprise: the ruling class’ political opponents: the conservative side of American life.
This has deep roots. In 1963, the ruling class imputed President John F. Kennedy’s assassination to the “climate of hatred” in conservative Dallas, Texas even though the assassin was a Communist. No less than Chief Justice Earl Warren indicted right wing “bigots.” Today, computer searches find that the term “extremist” correlates in the major newspapers with “conservative” or “right wing” at twelve times the rate it does with “liberal” or “left wing.”
The focus on “Homeland Security” has only added “terrorism” to our ruling class’ excuses for “going after” conservative Americans. And so, the Department of Homeland Security uses its intelligence “fusion centers” to compile ominously worded dossiers against such groups as “pro-lifers” and such “anti government activists” as “homeschoolers” and “gun owners.” The FBI infiltrates the Tea Parties as it once did the Communist Party. DHS conducts its “practice runs” against mockups of these groups. The IRS audits conservative groups.
Why not? President Barack Obama called these very groups “enemies of democracy,” and Vice President Joseph Biden has called them “terrorists.” Obama Administration spokesmen have referred to them as “jihadists,” “hostage takers,” persons “with bombs strapped to their chests, etc. Indeed a Rasmussen poll shows that 26% of the Obama Administration’s supporters – possibly not the least influential among them – regard the Tea Parties as the top terrorist threat to America.
No official act is needed for like-minded persons at the top of society to act in mutually pleasing ways. No law, no official policy, much less conspiracy is needed – only the prejudices and convenience, the intellectual, social, identity of those in power. Why should not officials all across the US government act according to their superiors’ opinions, to what they hear from the best people and what they read in the best media, indeed according to their shared beliefs?

Personally, I would like to thank the scumbags who have destroyed my country, especially that asshole in the oval office, as I cannot bring myself to say or write the words WHITE HOUSE anymore. You worms have fulfilled my life’s ambition of not fearing death or dying from some long drawn out nasty disease. I prefer a quick death with no misgivings. I say this because it seems imminent with all that’s being planned and presently happening. My only disappointment is Obuma most likely will never even know my name, let alone be among the swat team that brings these seventy three years to a close. So, my last hurrah is FUCK YOU OBUMA!

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.

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?

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.”

By Bernie Suarez
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 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

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.

MUST READ AT http://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com Too Big To Fail Is Now Bigger Than Ever Before
By Dave Hodges
Goldman Sachs is the epitome of the word “evil.” If one wants to know what the evil central bankers are up to, one only needs to pay attention to the actions of Goldman Sachs. The power elite residing inside of this country does not begin and end with the Federal Reserve; that privilege is reserved for the interrelationship between Goldman Sachs, the Federal Reserve, the corrupt World Bank and the IMF.
And now Goldman Sachs is running the European financial system into the ground as another Goldman Sachs boy, “Super” Mario Monti, has taken over Italy to finish off what is left of the Italian financial system. Monti is also the head of the European Trilateral Commission as well as a Bilderberg member.
And yet another Goldman Sachs boy is finishing off the job in Greece. It is the mission of Goldman Sachs to implode the global economy with massive debt arising from the failed derivatives market, in which the debt totals 16 times the total GDP of the planet and that debt has been passed on to the governments of the world. There is no way that any country will ever pay off this debt. The world’s financial system will be collapsed and then reorganized under the Bank for International Settlements. Goldman Sachs is merely the grim reaper in this unholy process.
The Goals of Goldman Sachs
The purpose of this article is to expose the three pronged attack, directed at the American people, by Goldman Sachs, and its partners at the Federal Reserve, the US Treasury Department, the IMF and the World Bank.
These central banker controlled institutions are engaged in a plot which is designed to accomplish the following:
1 The destruction of America’s domestic economy through the introduction of derivative debt which is 16 times greater than the world’s GDP. This goal has been accomplished as evidenced by the fact that America now has more workers on welfare (101 million) as opposed to actual full-time workers (97 million).
2 Setting the chessboard in such a way that WWIII is a foregone conclusion. This is near completion as the US and Israel are poised to go to war with China and Russia, over Syria and Iran, in order to preserve the Petrodollar.
3 Initiating a false flag event which will culminate in martial law and the elimination to all opposition to both the coming WWIII and the imposition of a tyrannical world government as well as a one world economic system.
It is no secret that Goldman Sachs runs Wall Street. After the first bailout, Goldman Sachs cut the head off of Shearson Lehman and several other Wall Street competitors when they used their undue influence to determine winners and losers after the first round of TARP. Even Ray Charles could see that Goldman Sachs is in near complete control of our government as evidenced by the former Goldman Sachs gangsters who have run our economy into the ground (e.g., Clinton’s Secretary of Treasury Goldman Sachs’ Rubin, Bush’s Secretary of Treasury Goldman Sachs’ “too big to fail” Hank Paulson, etc.). Make no mistake about it, the introduction of the massive derivatives debt was a power consolidation move designed to collapse the economy and hand over essential control to Goldman Sachs and its partners.
History Repeats Itself
Today’s events parallel the imperialists of the early 20th century which resulted in World War I. The Wall Street-led depression of the 1930s led to the rise of political extremism and ultimately to World War II. Today, Goldman Sachs and their fellow Wall Street cronies are currently running, or dare I say ruining the global economy. The consequences are going to result in the culmination of World War III from which these same gangster banksters will profit from the buildup, the death and destruction of billions of innocent people as well as profiting from the lucrative clean up which follows every war.
The ultimate prize for the coming war will be the ruination of the planet in order that the power structure of the earth can be reinvented in a manner that not even George Orwell could have imagined. Remember, as the globalists like to say in reference to their favorite Hegelian Dialectic quote, “Out of chaos comes order.” Of course, it won’t be Goldman Sachs’ money that pays for the destruction of humanity in the coming world war. This coming war and its subsequent blood money will be your money and my money. It goes without saying that it won’t be the executives of Goldman Sachs' children who are pressed into military service and will be eventually sacrificed on the battlefields of WWIII. It will be your children and my children who will be sacrificed in the name of furthering the bottom line of the Goldman Sachs Mafia and their masters at the Bank for International Settlements. Meanwhile, the Goldman Sachs children who will be safely tucked away as the world’s final chapter plays out as we know it.
Goldman Sachs Destroying the American Middle Class
This swath of international destruction being promulgated by Goldman Sachs is also being visited upon the daily lives of the American public here at home. Courtesy of the Goldman Sachs gangsters, there are no more safe financial havens for American citizens. Your bank account, your pension fund, your investment accounts and your home mortgages are no longer safe. These collective funds are not in jeopardy because of the risk of falling victim to the failing economy as much as these funds are subject to confiscation by Goldman Sachs and its shell corporations along with the complicit support of the federal government. Most of these public officials are former Goldman Sachs employees. A clear case in point lies in what happened with MF Global.
MF Global, a shell corporation beholden to Goldman Sachs, was led to the slaughter by the former Goldman Sachs executive and former New Jersey Governor and senator, Jon Corzine. Corzine’s criminal actions directly victimized 150,000 Americans by stealing an estimated $900 million dollars of his clients’ money from their supposedly secure private accounts. There is also another $600 million missing dollars from MF Global which is still unaccounted for today. Meanwhile, Corzine avoids sharing a prison cell with Bernie Madoff by purchasing a “get-out-of-jail free card” through the sponsorship of a $35,000 per plate fundraiser for that great Wall Street puppet, Barack Hussein Obama.
And what are the government watch dogs doing to protect our money from this new generation of robber barons? The short answer is that key federal officials are actually partners with Goldman Sachs in this monumental violation of the public trust. Take Gary Gensler, a former Goldman Sachs executive partner, who like so many other Goldman Sachs gangsters, has been placed into a key governmental oversight position in order to protect the Goldman Sachs co-conspirators from prosecution as they continue their reign of terror upon the global economy.
Gary “the gangster” Gensler is the former Undersecretary of the Treasury (1999-2001) andAssistant Secretary of the Treasury (1997-1999) and the current director of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. In his position at the time of the MF Global debacle, Gensler had the authority to go after Corzine for his role in the MF Global theft of customer funds and order restitution. However, Gensler has decided to protect a fellow member of the Goldman Sachs Mafia by not looking into the massive fraud and theft by Corzine and his cronies. Your tax dollars, paying the salary of federal officials, are overseeing the most massive illegal private transfer of wealth in the history of the planet. And this debt is payable to Goldman Sachs and their criminal enterprise partners.
You may not be one of the current 150,000 Goldman Sachs/MF Global victims. However, this Robin Hood-in-reverse-scenario, in which the rich are plundering what’s left of the middle class, will soon be visited upon your bank account, your home mortgages and your pensions. Whether it is the MERS mortgage fraud or the theft being perpetrated upon Federal employee retirement accounts, these criminal banksters are in the process of stealing it all and what are you going to do about it? Our nation of entrenched sheep will do nothing. The American citizens are going to lay down and take their beating in the face of the largest unfolding criminal syndicate in human history.
While you and the rest of America are trying to collectively remove your “deer in the headlight” glaze, you, as an American, have far more serious issues to concern yourself with and you are not going to have to wait long to have your worst fears to be borne out.
Something Wicked This Way Comes
Some, who have heard my expressed sense of outrage, have asked me if I favor a violent overthrow the United States Government. To that question, I answer in the negative. However, show me a way to be involved in the overthrow of the gangsters who have hijacked my country’s government, and I will be the first in line. However, before that day arrives, we have some very formidable obstacles to face with regard to what is looming just around the corner.
Goldman Sachs Is the Financial Kingpin of False Flag Attacks
If one wants to predict the next false flag attack, one merely has to watch the actions and the money movements of Goldman Sachs.
In the days leading up to the attacks on 9/11, Goldman Sachs “shorted” the sale of airline stocks which plummeted in the aftermath of the attacks. Just a coincidence you say?
In the days leading up to the housing bubble, Goldman Sachs shorted housing stocks which ignited the bubble. The Federal government fined Goldman Sachs, but in typical fashion nobody went to jail. Just another coincidence you say?
As I documented in my seven-part series, The Great Gulf Coast Holocaust, Goldman Sachs executed a “put option” for preferred insiders invested in Transocean stock, thus protecting the profits of these preferred insiders on the morning of the explosion. Transocean was the owner of the ill-fated oil rig. Goldman Sachs also sold the lion’s share of its stock less than two weeks before that fateful day on April 20, 2010. Nalco was the subsidiary of Goldman Sachs and BP at the time of the explosion. Who is Nalco? Nalco was the exclusive manufacturer of the deadly oil dispersant, Corexit. Corexit has done more to wreck the ecology of the Gulf as well as the health of the Gulf Coast residents than the oil spill itself. Again, this is all documented in my seven-part series. By the way, I count another three coincidences in this paragraph alone and if you are keeping score, we are looking at a total of five amazing coincidences. But wait, there is more!
The moral of this story is clear: if there is to be a significant false flag event, the financial actions of Goldman Sachs will prove to be the key. And Goldman Sachs’ actions have signaled yet another oncoming false flag. As I reported in April, Goldman Sachs instructed its brokers to sell short on gold stocks. And then after the bulk of the gold market panicked and the price of gold plummeted in a massive sell off, the Goldman Sachs boys did it again. The Goldman Sachs brokers began to purchase gold in massive amounts, for its elite clients, at a greatly depressed price. By the way, Goldman Sachs employed the EXACT same strategy with regard to the Gulf Oil tragedy. When Goldman Sachs sold off BP stock in the days before the explosion, they purchased massive amounts of BP stock at a greatly reduced price in June of 2010. The coincidence meter is now up to seven.
Why Goldman Sachs Cornered the Gold Market
The global elite would only want massive amounts of gold because something bad is about to happen to the dollar. When the dollar collapses, the elite, courtesy of the Goldman Sachs brokers will be sitting in a great position in which they hold the only sustainable medium of exchange following the collapse. But when will the collapse come? What form will it take?
As I reported, less than two weeks ago, the Bank for International Settlements ordered the central banks, including the Federal Reserve, to greatly decrease loans as a protection to the coming bad financial times. So, now we are getting warned and the narrowing down of where this is leading, is getting easier to predict.
It is important to remember that Goldman Sachs and the rest of the international banking community desperately want to wage war in Syria and eventually Iran over the demise of the Petrodollar caused by Iran in which they are selling oil for gold to India, China and Russia. There is also big money to be made by the banks in an upcoming global conflict. More importantly, and just as the world witnessed in the aftermath of WWII, consolidation of power can be achieved following a major war. Additionally, Goldman Sachs and the rest of the international bankers are not about to let China and Russia thumb their noses at the prevailing economic system. Gold will not be allowed to be used as a medium of exchange for nation states, because a nation on the gold standard, is a nation that controls its debt levels and financial security. This is unacceptable to the central bankers who kill national leaders, such as Gadaffi and Saddam Hussein, for daring to break from the plan and achieve financial independence.
What the globalists also need is a game-changing event which will destroy all opposition to the coming war. And the financial intentions of Goldman Sachs clearly speaks to the fact that a false flag attack is imminent which will implicate Syria and Iran and provide the pretext for the US and Israel to attack.
The Nature of the Coming False Flag Attack
The coming false flag attack which will plunge America into martial law, for our own protection of course, will result in WWIII. The false flag event could take two forms. It was reported two weeks ago, that the US was missing a nuclear weapon from a military base in Texas. This prompted Senator Lindsay Graham to state that the harbor in Charleston, SC. would be nuked if the US did not attack Syria. This is the first scenario.
The other scenario, and the far more likely one, has the power grid going down on November 13th. The Grid Ex II drill being conducted by DHS, FEMA, 150 corporations and the 50 governors, will simulate a power grid take down by terrorists on that same date. How many times have we witnessed a drill which turns into a false flag attack? This happened with 9/11, the 7/7 bombings and the Boston Marathon. There is a good chance it is going to happen here.
In this scenario, once the grid is taken down, a banking collapse can be instituted and most will not notice because by the third day of a blackout, total chaos will ensue and nobody will be paying attention to the banks. Martial law will be imposed and Syria and Iran will be blamed.
The CEO of Goldman Sachs, Lloyd Blankfein, is on the record stating that an economic collapse is imminent. Need I say more?
Regardless of the form that an upcoming false flag event will follow, Goldman Sachs has tipped their false flag hand. A false flag event is coming and it is a safe bet that it will culminate in martial law. This would certainly explain DHS’ collecting of 2.6 billion rounds of ammunition and 2700 armored personnel carriers. There is also going to be a resulting third world war. The globalists know humanity is waking up. They are running out time and they are desperate. This could all be over in a few months. Do you not feel the collective sense of dreaded anticipation that has overtaken the country? At the unconscious level, we all know what is coming.
The November power grid drill is worth watching and I predict in the upcoming weeks, there will be many articles written about how to survive the coming events. I would advise all to pay attention, but most of all, I would advise people to get their spiritual affairs in order. We come into the world with nothing and all we leave with is the sum total of our spiritual experiences. It is time to attend to that detail in the present time
