The Collapse Of The Petrodollar Oil Exporters Are Dumping US Assets At A Record Pace

April 16th, 2015 by

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-04-15/collapse-petrodollar-oil-exporters-are-dumping-us-assets-record-pace

By Tyler Durden

Back in November we chronicled the (quiet) death of the Petrodollar, the system that has buttressed USD hegemony for decades by ensuring that oil producers recycled their dollar proceeds into still more USD assets creating a very convenient (if your printing press mints dollars) self-fulfilling prophecy that has effectively underwritten the dollar’s reserve status in the post WWII era. Here’s what we said last year:

Two years ago, in hushed tones at first, then ever louder, the financial world began discussing that which shall never be discussed in polite company – the end of the system that according to many has framed and facilitated the US Dollar’s reserve currency status: the Petrodollar, or the world in which oil export countries would recycle the dollars they received in exchange for their oil exports, by purchasing more USD-denominated assets, boosting the financial strength of the reserve currency, leading to even higher asset prices and even more USD-denominated purchases, and so forth, in a virtuous (especially if one held US-denominated assets and printed US currency) loop…

 Few would have believed that the Petrodollar did indeed quietly die, although ironically, without much input from either Russia or China, and paradoxically, mostly as a result of the actions of none other than the Fed itself, with its strong dollar policy, and to a lesser extent Saudi Arabia too, which by glutting the world with crude, first intended to crush Putin, and subsequently, to take out the US crude cost-curve, may have Plaxico’ed both itself, and its closest Petrodollar trading partner, the US of A.

 As Reuters reports, for the first time in almost two decades, energy-exporting countries are set to pull their “petrodollars” out of world markets this year.

4-16-2015 12-01-28 PM

Not long afterwards (and by that we mean “not long” in the sense that three months isn’t really that long when it comes to everyone catching on to what “fringe” bloggers say is likely important), Bank of America took notice in the form of interviews with a half dozen or so in- house economists whose views can be generally summed up as follows: “…the end of the Petrodollar recycling chain is said to impact everything from Russian geopolitics, to global capital market liquidity, to safe-haven demand for Treasurys, to social tensions in developing nations, to the Fed’s exit strategy.”

Here’s Goldman with a bit of color on the projected magnitude of the shifting Petrodollar dynamic:

We estimate that the new (lower) oil price equilibrium will reduce the supply of petrodollars by up to US$24 bn per month in the coming years, corresponding to around US$860 bn over the next three years. The ultimate impact, however, will depend on a number of key current account buffers (goods imports, net factor income and service imports). 

Against this backdrop we bring you the following, from Bloomberg which highlights the fact that oil producers are now liquidating their Petrodollar assets at a frenzied pace in the face of today’s “crude” realities:

In the heady days of the commodity boom, oil-rich nations accumulated billions of dollars in reserves they invested in U.S. debt and other securities. They also occasionally bought trophy assets, such as Manhattan skyscrapers, luxury homes in London or Paris Saint-Germain Football Clubs.

Now that oil prices have dropped by half to $50 a barrel, Saudi Arabia and other commodity-rich nations are fast drawing down those “petrodollar” reserves. Some nations, such as Angola, are burning through their savings at a record pace, removing a source of liquidity from global markets.

If oil and other commodity prices remain depressed, the trend will cut demand for everything from European government debt to U.S. real estate as producing nations seek to fill holes in their domestic budgets.

“This is the first time in 20 years that OPEC nations will be sucking liquidity out of the market rather than adding to it through investments,” said David Spegel, head of emerging markets sovereign credit research at BNP Paribas SA in London…

A concomitant drop in foreign reserves, revealed in data from national central banks and the IMF, is affecting nations from oil producer Oman to copper-rich Chile and cotton-growing Burkina Faso. Reserves are dropping faster than during the last commodity price plunge in 2008 and 2009.

The drawdown reverses a decade-long inflow into the coffers of commodity-rich nations which helped to increase funds available for investment and boost asset prices. Bond purchases have helped to keep interest rates low.

Oil producers recycled a large portion of their petrodollars — a term coined for the dollar-denominated oil trade — by buying sovereign debt of the U.S. and other countries. As they draw down reserves, Middle East countries are likely to sell “low-yielding European assets,” George Saravelos, strategist at Deutsche Bank AG, said in a note to clients.

Available data shows foreign savings by commodity-rich nations are dropping across the board. In Chile, the world’s top copper exporter, foreign savings fell $1.9 billion in February, the biggest drop in three years.

Analysts and officials anticipate that commodity-rich countries will continue selling off foreign assets through the year.

The IMF’s Arezki said that unless they cut spending, resources-rich nations “have no choice but to draw on their financial assets when available” as oil prices are well below the fiscal break-even needed by many exporting nations. The IMF estimates that many oil countries would only balance their budgets if crude prices recover to $75 or higher.

And so the liquidity drain is on, the only question is how far reaching the consequences will be and whether DM central bank largesse can effectively offset the implications of the petrodollar spigot being turned completely off for the first time in nearly two decades, representing a monumental fall from the more than $500 billion in EM Petrodollars that inundated the market just seven years ago. Here’s an interesting take on this from Citi:

The longer crude prices persist at current levels, the more likely it is that these investors stop seeing inflows. And if that were to be the case, then the drop in crude prices could end up effectively offsetting further balance-sheet expansion from the BoJ and ECB.

Naysayers will argue that the two aren’t equivalent: QE is money creation while petrodollars are a zero-sum game. In other words, while petrodollars are being accumulated at a slower rate because crude prices have dropped, other economic actors are experiencing a corresponding windfall. 

While that’s certainly the case, what matters is how the savings from lower crude oil prices end up getting invested relative to the investments made by sovereign wealth funds and FX reserve managers. And on that score, we suspect that petrodollar investors generally make conservative investments that are inherently fixed income-friendly, while the savings from lower gasoline prices tend to grow the top line revenue of consumer-oriented companies and the margins of those companies with significant transportation costs. As such, forsaken petrodollars rarely find their way back into fixed income markets.

In a very real sense then, we’d argue that the decline in petrodollar growth is likely to equate to less demand for fixed income securities and make the withdrawal of Fed QE that much more palpable. 

As we said back in February, “…few actually grasped the implications of what plunging oil really means in a world in which this most financialized of commodities plays a massive role in both the global economy and capital markets, not to mention in geopolitics, with implications far, far greater than the amateurish ‘yes, but gas is now cheaper’ retort.” In the end, the real question may be this: what happens socially and politically in EM oil producing states when, after years of depressed prices, the coffers finally run dry?

Here’s the schematic again:

POSSE COMITATUS WON’T SAVE YOU FROM THE U. S. MILITARY +

 POSSE COMITATUS WON’T SAVE YOU FROM THE U. S. MILITARY +

This is not a government of the people, for the people, by the people. By Simon Black

GOVERNMENT CAN GET YOU ANYTIME IT WANTS. If a person, group of people, or a government has power over you, that means they can control what you do, or force you to do what you don’t want to do. That power comes either by the force of law with corresponding punishments for not obeying the law, or by force of violence using the gun or other weapons that can threaten or take your life, or rob you of your liberty.

In many of our articles over the last 10 years, we have written about the growing power of the American government, at all levels, but mostly at the federal level. No matter what anyone thinks, the evidence points directly at a trend towards absolute power. That is what governments do over time. But the only way to project absolute power is by force and that force comes in the form of civilian or military power where that power can incarcerate you, or kill you …… for any reason!

The Founders went to great lengths to set up a government system that was based on the rule of law, not rule by force. Overtime, as laws proliferated into millions of laws piled on top of one another, enforcement of all those laws became problematic. As more people broke the laws, many without knowing it, government’s response was to increase enforcement.

In a previous article on laws we wrote: Every Time A New Law Is Written

“By just sheer numbers, the more laws that are written, the less likely the entire population will even know about the laws, or understand them, or know of their consequences or penalties for violation, much less be in compliance with them. The consequence of too many laws is that huge segments of the public are totally unaware of their existence. And yet, under the law, ignorance of the law is not a defense. Then, when the hapless individual comes face-to-face with the law, it results in anger and frustration for that individual and a spiraling degradation of freedom and liberty for all of us.”

“Many laws are written at the insistence of lobbying or special interest groups with very narrow and purposely hidden agendas. The public never has an opportunity for real input and society as a whole is not benefited. Partisan politics often compromises a new law into meaningless, often conflicting legislation, leaving loopholes over which lawyers can argue over for decades.”

“In the final analysis, extending legislating and law creation to its absurdity, one arrives at a point where there are so many laws that no one is in compliance and we end up losing our ability to enforce any of them. We become in fact, lawless by the very chaos that the policy makers have created.”

UNLESS THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT SENDS IN FEDERAL TROOPS!

What this all boils down to is that the more laws there are and the more people there are to be controlled by those laws, the greater the need of enforcement by guns. It is clear that government will never allow the people TO BECOME LAWLESS. After all, government’s role is to keep the peace and restore order no matter how many liberties the people have to give up.

As the federal government grew larger and more powerful, it became the logical repository for the military power needed to control all those millions of people to make sure they comply with all the millions of laws that the people know nothing about. They must keep order and control at all costs. But it must be remembered that local law enforcement is trained to use minimal force, where the U. S. Military is trained to use maximum, overwhelming force. That is the undeniable difference and a direct threat to individual liberty.

The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 (Pub. L. 18 USC P 1385) was supposed to keep the U. S. Military from enforcing local and federal law, or assisting local law enforcement in that duty. Well before the Posse Comitatus Act was passed, Congress passed the Insurrection Act of 1807 (Pub. L. 10 USC 331 thru 335) which was a “set of laws that govern the ability of the President to deploy U. S. troops on American soil.” Such deployment could only come at the request of a governor of the state in which an event was taking place requiring a larger military force. This all changed after Hurricane Katrina where the Louisiana governor did not request federal troops to restore order. Congress went ahead and modified the Insurrection Act as follows:

“Section 1076 of the law changed Sec. 333 of the ‘Insurrection Act,’ and widened the President’s ability to deploy troops within the United States to enforce the laws. Under this act, the President may also deploy troops as a police force during a natural disaster, epidemic, serious public health emergency, terrorist attack, or other condition, when the President determines that the authorities of the state are incapable of maintaining public order. The bill also modified Sec. 334 of the Insurrection Act, giving the President authority to order the dispersal of either insurgents or ‘those obstructing the enforcement of the laws.’ The law changed the name of the chapter from ‘Insurrection’ to ‘Enforcement of the Laws to Restore Public Order.'”

But ladies and gentlemen, it gets far worse from there. The Department of Defense (DOD) has inserted itself into the use of U. S. Military force on American soil and enforcing local law and assisting local law enforcement. In our research we ran across a 2004 DOD document (republished in 2009) that spells out in detail that Posse Comitatus is dead and the Insurrection Act must be expanded. Here are excerpts from that document.

 Legal Authority to Use Federal Troops to Enforce the Law

The Insurrection Act is the most important legal authority for the President to authorize the use of federal troops to enforce the law. The Insurrection Act (there is really no single ‘Insurrection Act’ per se but this name has been applied collectively to the four statutes noted below) consists of four statutes enacted at different times for different reasons that, when considered as a whole, provide the power that Presidents have used many times as the legal basis for using troops to enforce the law. The four sections of the act are as follows:

  • Title 10, Section 331 was enacted in 1792 in response to challenges to the taxing power of the federal government. It allows the President, at the request of a governor or state legislature, to put down an insurrection by calling into federal service sufficient militia to “suppress the insurrection.”
  • Title 10, Section 332 was enacted in 1861 at the outset of the Civil War. It allows the President to use the armed forces to enforce the laws or suppress a rebellion whenever, in his opinion, unlawful obstructions, combinations, or assemblages or rebellion against the authority of the United States make it impractical to enforce the laws using the course of judicial proceedings.
  • Title 10, Section 333 was enacted in 1869 during the Reconstruction Era. It allows the President to use the armed forces or militia to respond to insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracies that prevent a state government from enforcing the laws.
  • Title 10, Section 334 was enacted in 1861. It prescribes that the President shall issue a proclamation calling on insurgents to disperse before using the militia or armed forces to enforce the law.

The Insurrection Act is the most sweeping authority for the President to authorize and order the use of the federal troops for domestic operations. The President may not act on warning or even at the start of an incident, but must wait until the governor or a state legislature asks for federal assistance. This tends to discourage advance preparations and movements of troops-although Presidents have authorized such actions. This tiered approach in which the federal government acts only after local and state governments have failed, was workable when the cost of delayed response was acceptable, but it is inappropriate for the current situation.

This should scare the pants off you! The older Insurrection Act and the revisions thereto, have all but repealed Posse Comitatus. The President can do what he wishes, anytime he wants with federal troops. That is an awesome power.

We have placed links to the evolution of the “Insurrection Act” and the entire above DOD document on our website for yourreview at this link. You have to read the whole DOD document if you really want to understand what is going on.

Why do you suppose that the U. S. Military has been conducting massive training operations throughout the U. S., like operation Jade Helm 15 as depicted in the above image?

(Jade Helm 15 link)

It isn’t all training for warfare elsewhere on the planet. It is in fact training to put down insurrection by disgruntled Americans and to maintain civil order when local law enforcement can’t do the job, pursuant to the detailed outline in the above referenced DOD document.

It is no coincidence that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has put out lists of potential domestic terrorists that include Christian groups, militias, patriots and returning military vets. They know what is in your mind and what you may be planning and they are planning ahead for that eventuality. It is no accident that the U. S. Military is conducting huge, multi-state training operations, or building FEMA camps for massive internment.

The Progressives have been in virtual control of America for over 100 years. They intend to remain in control, even if they can’t do it by votes. They have taken over the schools, academia, government institutions, the news media and they will maintain their control by force of arms if patriots (conservatives) even so much as hint at challenging their authority. It’s been coming for a long time. It is the final evolution of a liberal, socialist, ideologically driven dictatorship.

For those in our reading audience who think that a group of armed militia can stand up against the full force and fury of the U. S. Military, they had better think again. If we are going to change the course that America is now on, it will have to be by peaceful means.

The only way insurrection or uprising by Americans can win against the U. S. Military is the organization of millions of armed citizens with seasoned leadership, command and control and extensive training, who will put everything on the line to challenge the final militarization of America by federal forces. And they had better hope that the federal troops don’t shoot to kill, because those federal forces are also made up of Americans. If civilian Americans are pitted against federal troop Americans in a shooting war, the U. S. Constitution will be annulled and martial law will be declared. We can almost guarantee that what comes out of that shooting war between Americans and Americans will not be a Constitutional Republic.

We are just as disturbed by Operation Jade Helm 15 as are many other Americans. Consequently, we have filed a formal FOIA request with the Department of Defense, asking some very specific questions about this operation and demanding specific documents. You will find a link to a PDF version of our FOIA request on our website at this link. We will publish responses to the FOIA request in later articles ….. if any.

Please understand that this FOIA request could put a target on our back and put us at considerable risk for having the audacity to challenge them personally. They are already monitoring us and have been for several years. We know just by observing the statistics on our website.

Why do we do this ladies and gentlemen? Because we strongly believe in preserving, protecting and defending the Constitution of the United States and the individual liberty it secures. It could be considered treason that our president and all other public office holders and bureaucrats don’t do the same. It is a travesty that millions of Americans won’t join us, or others, in this effort. Their silence could be America’s undoing.

 This is not a government of the people for the people by the people.

 By Simon Black

Founder, SovereignMan.com

Seventy years ago, the United States of America had just emerged from World War II as the most dominant superpower in the world.

At that point America’s economy was the only one left standing.

And the US government had essentially dictated terms in establishing a new global financial system (known as the Bretton Woods agreement).

Doing so thrust the dollar at the center of world trade and banking.

Suddenly every government, central bank, and Major Corporation needed to hold and transact in US dollars… and to establish a banking relationship in the United States.

This gave the United States a tremendous amount of power—power they respected and never abused.

At the same time, high ranking members of the Nazi party had fled to the four corners of the world, often with a vast treasure trove stashed away at Swiss banks.

Most of this wealth was acquired through mass genocide. And yet Switzerland’s secrecy laws protected Nazi clients from having their information turned over to authorities.

No one pressed the issue further.

Think about it—the US government could have done something.

They had the power back then. They could have punished Switzerland with all sorts of banking and financial penalties. They could have threatened to kick them out of the financial system.

But they didn’t.

Instead, in 1945, the US government gave the Nazis a pass.

This is extraordinary when you think about it. Because if you fast forward several decades, we see now that the US government is chasing people to the ends of the earth.

Even more, they’ve brought the full extent of their financial resources to bear against entire banking systems (including Switzerland’s).

They’ve successfully shuttered some of the oldest banks in the world, imprisoned foreign bank executives, and even gotten foreign governments to change their laws.

So who exactly are the nefarious criminal terrorists that Uncle Sam is spending so much effort to chase down?

Americans, specifically Americans who have failed to file administrative paperwork with the IRS to declare overseas financial accounts.

There are countless stories out there of people having their life savings confiscated by the government because they didn’t file a disclosure form (even if there are no back taxes due).

Certainly there is some meaningful percentage of these people who have been hiding undeclared income overseas hoping to never pay tax on it. And it’s important to acknowledge that.

But while this sort of behavior had been going on for decades, it took until 2010 for the US government to pass the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), establishing the power to bully global financial institutions into compliance.

The reason is obvious: the United States government is broke.

Decades ago the future was bright. And they could afford to give the Nazis a pass. They didn’t really need the money, and it wasn’t worth abusing the tremendous financial power that they had been entrusted with.

But today, every penny matters.

The US government is in a position where they have to borrow money just to pay interest on the money they’ve already borrowed.

Their own internal numbers estimate their ‘net worth’ at MINUS $60 trillion, which includes their own estimates of long-term social security liabilities.

So they have no qualms about abusing the trust that the rest of the world has given them… or even creating new powers out of thin air through the most destructive legislation imaginable.

It’s often said that there are only a few times in a person’s life when you can really see what someone’s character is made of—typically times of extreme adversity such as being near death or flat broke.

That’s where the US government is right now. Enabling us to now see its true character.

This is not a government of the people, for the people, by the people. It is a government that takes from the people. By any means necessary. And they grow bolder with each passing day.

No Matter Who Wins the White House the New Boss Will Be the Same as the Old Boss

April 14th, 2015 by

=ad6a6ad28c&e=84f74f6a6a

By John W. Whitehead
April 13, 2015

“What the government is good at is collecting taxes, taking away your freedoms and killing people. It’s not good at much else.”—Author Tom Clancy

The American people remain eager to be persuaded that a new president in the White House can solve the problems that plague us. Yet no matter who wins this next presidential election, you can rest assured that the new boss will be the same as the old boss, and we—the permanent underclass in America—will continue to be forced to march in lockstep with the police state in all matters, public and private.

Indeed, as I point out in my new book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, it really doesn’t matter what you call them—the 1%, the elite, the controllers, the masterminds, the shadow government, the police state, the surveillance state, the military industrial complex—so long as you understand that no matter which party occupies the White House in 2017, the unelected bureaucracy that actually calls the shots will continue to do so.

Consider the following a much-needed reality check, an antidote if you will, against an overdose of overhyped campaign announcements, lofty electoral promises and meaningless patriotic sentiments that land us right back in the same prison cell.

FACT: For the first time in history, Congress is dominated by a majority of millionaires who are, on average, fourteen times wealthier than the average American. According to a scientific study by Princeton researchers, the United States of America is not the democracy that it purports to be, but rather an oligarchy, in which “economic elites and organized groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on U.S. government policy.”

FACT: “Today, 17,000 local police forces are equipped with such military equipment as Blackhawk helicopters, machine guns, grenade launchers, battering rams, explosives, chemical sprays, body armor, night vision, rappelling gear and armored vehicles,” reports Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury. “Some have tanks.”

FACT: Thanks to an overabundance of 4,500-plus federal crimes and 400,000-plus rules and regulations, it is estimated that the average American actually commits three felonies a day without knowing it. In fact, according to law professor John Baker, “There is no one in the United States over the age of 18 who cannot be indicted for some federal crime. That is not an exaggeration.”

FACT: The number of violent crimes in the country is down substantially, the lowest rate in forty years, while the number of Americans being jailed for nonviolent crimes such as driving with a suspended license is skyrocketing.

FACT: Despite the fact that women only make up 8 percent of the prison population, they are more likely to be strip searched, though not more likely to carry contraband.

FACT: Despite the fact that we have 46 million Americans living at or below the poverty line16 million children living in households without adequate access to food, and at least 900,000 veterans relying on food stamps, enormous sums continue to be doled out for presidential vacations ($16 million for trips to Africa and Hawaii), overtime fraud at the Department of Homeland Security (nearly $9 million in improper overtime claims, and that’s just in six of the DHS’ many offices) HurricaHur, and Hollywood movie productions ($10 million was spent by the Army National Guard on Superman movie tie-ins aimed at increasing awareness about the National Guard).

FACT: Since 2001 Americans have spent $10.5 million every hour for numerous foreign military occupations, including in Iraq and Afghanistan. There’s also the $2.2 million spent every hour on maintaining the United States’ nuclear stockpile, and the $35,000 spent every hour to produce and maintain our collection of Tomahawk missiles. And then there’s the money the government exports to other countries to support their arsenals, at the cost of $1.61 million every hour for the American taxpayers.

FACT: It is estimated that 2.7 million children in the United States have at least one parent in prison, whether it be a local jail or a state or federal penitentiary, due to a wide range of factors ranging from over criminalization and surprise raids at family homes to roadside traffic stops.

FACT: At least 400 to 500 innocent people are killed by police officers every year. Indeed, Americans are now eight times more likely to die in a police confrontation than they are to be killed by a terrorist. Americans are 110 times more likely to die of food-borne illness than in a terrorist attack.

FACT: Police officers are more likely to be struck by lightning than be made financially liable for their wrongdoing.

FACT: On an average day in America, over 100 Americans have their homes raided by SWAT teams. There has been a notable buildup in recent years of SWAT teams within non-security-related federal agencies such as the Department of Agriculture, the Railroad Retirement Board, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Office of Personnel Management, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Education Department.

FACT: The FBI’s Next Generation Identification (NGI) facial recognition system, which is set to hold data on millions of Americans, will include a variety of biometric data, including palm prints, iris scans, and face recognition data. The FBI hopes to have 52 million images by 2015. NGI will be capable of uploading 55,000 images a day, and conducting tens of thousands of photo searches a day.

FACT: Comprising an $82 billion industry, at least 30,000 drones are expected to occupy U.S. airspace by 2020.

FACT: Devices are now being developed that would allow police to stop a car remotely, ostensibly to end police chases.

FACT: Everything we do will eventually be connected to the Internet. By 2030 it is estimated there will be 100 trillion sensor devices connecting human electronic devices (cell phones, laptops, etc.) to the Internet. Much, if not all, of our electronic devices will be connected to Google, which openly works with government intelligence agencies.

FACT: In 2015 mega-food corporations will begin rolling out high-tech shelving outfitted with cameras in order to track the shopping behavior of customers, as well as information like the age and sex of shoppers.

FACT: If knowledge is power, it’s no wonder Americans are in hot water. According to a study by the National Constitution Center, 41 percent of Americans “are not aware that there are three branches of government, and 62 percent couldn’t name them; 33 percent couldn’t even name one.”

FACT: The United States is one of the highest TV viewing nations. According to a Nielsen report, the average American over the age of two “spends more than thirty-four hours a week watching live television . . . plus another three to six hours watching taped programs.”

FACT: Only six out of every one hundred Americans know that they actually have a constitutional right to hold the government accountable for wrongdoing, as guaranteed by the right to petition clause of the First Amendment.

FACT: According to a Gallup poll, Americans place greater faith in the military and the police than in any of the three branches of government. However, when asked to name the greatest problem facing the nation, Americans of all political stripes ranked the government as the number one concern. In fact, almost eight out of ten Americans believe that government corruption is widespread.

Perhaps the most troubling fact of all is this: we have handed over control of our government and our lives to faceless bureaucrats who view us as little more than cattle to be bred, branded, butchered and sold for profit.

If there is to be any hope of restoring our freedoms and reclaiming control over our government, it will rest not with the politicians but with the people themselves. When all is said and done, each American will have to decide for them-selves whether they prefer dangerous freedom to peaceful slavery.

Meet The Secretive Group That Runs The World

April 13th, 2015 by

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-04-11/meet-secretive-group-runs-world

By Tyler Durden 

Over the centuries there have been many stories, some based on loose facts, others based on hearsay, conjecture, speculation and outright lies, about groups of people who “control the world.” Some of these are partially accurate, others are wildly hyperbolic, but when it comes to the historic record, nothing comes closer to the stereotypical, secretive group determining the fate of over 7 billion people, than the Bank of International Settlements, which hides in such plain sight, that few have ever paid much attention.

This is their story.

First unofficial meeting of the BIS Board of Directors in Basel, April 1930

* * *

The following is an excerpt from TOWER OF BASEL: The Shadowy History of the Secret Bank that Runs the World by Adam LeBor.  Reprinted with permission from PublicAffairs.

The world’s most exclusive club has eighteen members. They gather every other month on a Sunday evening at 7 p.m. in conference room E in a circular tower block whose tinted windows overlook the central Basel railway station. Their discussion lasts for one hour, perhaps an hour and a half. Some of those present bring a colleague with them, but the aides rarely speak during this most confidential of conclaves. The meeting closes, the aides leave, and those remaining retire for dinner in the dining room on the eighteenth floor, rightly confident that the food and the wine will be superb. The meal, which continues until 11 p.m. or midnight, is where the real work is done. The protocol and hospitality, honed for more than eight decades, are faultless. Anything said at the dining table, it is understood, is not to be repeated elsewhere.

Few, if any, of those enjoying their haute cuisine and grand cru wines— some of the best Switzerland can offer—would be recognized by passers-by, but they include a good number of the most powerful people in the world. These men—they are almost all men—are central bankers. They have come to Basel to attend the Economic Consultative Committee (ECC) of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), which is the bank for central banks. Its current members [ZH: as of 2013] include Ben Bernanke, the chairman of the US Federal Reserve; Sir Mervyn King, the governor of the Bank of England; Mario Draghi, of the European Central Bank; Zhou Xiaochuan of the Bank of China; and the central bank governors of Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, Canada, India, and Brazil. Jaime Caruana, a former governor of the Bank of Spain, the BIS’s general manager, joins them.

In early 2013, when this book went to press, King, who is due to step down as governor of the Bank of England in June 2013, chaired the ECC. The ECC, which used to be known as the G-10 governors’ meeting, is the most influential of the BIS’s numerous gatherings, open only to a small, select group of central bankers from advanced economies. The ECC makes recommendations on the membership and organization of the three BIS committees that deal with the global financial system, payments systems, and international markets. The committee also prepares proposals for the Global Economy Meeting and guides its agenda.

That meeting starts at 9:30 a.m. on Monday morning, in room B and lasts for three hours. There King presides over the central bank governors of the thirty countries judged the most important to the global economy. In addition to those who were present at the Sunday evening dinner, Monday’s meeting will include representatives from, for example, Indonesia, Poland, South Africa, Spain, and Turkey. Governors from fifteen smaller countries, such as Hungary, Israel, and New Zealand are allowed to sit in as observers, but do not usually speak. Governors from the third tier of member banks, such as Macedonia and Slovakia, are not allowed to attend. Instead they must forage for scraps of information at coffee and meal breaks.

The governors of all sixty BIS member banks then enjoy a buffet lunch in the eighteenth-floor dining room. Designed by Herzog & de Meuron, the Swiss architectural firm which built the “Bird’s Nest” Stadium for the Beijing Olympics, the dining room has white walls, a black ceiling and spectacular views over three countries: Switzerland, France, and Germany. At 2 p.m. the central bankers and their aides return to room B for the governors’ meeting to discuss matters of interest, until the gathering ends at 5.

King takes a very different approach than his predecessor, Jean-Claude Trichet, the former president of the European Central Bank, in chairing the Global Economy Meeting. Trichet, according to one former central banker, was notably Gallic in his style: a stickler for protocol who called the central bankers to speak in order of importance, starting with the governors of the Federal Reserve, the Bank of England, and the Bundesbank, and then progressing down the hierarchy. King, in contrast, adopts a more thematic and egalitarian approach: throwing open the meetings for discussion and inviting contributions from all present.

The governors’ conclaves have played a crucial role in determining the world’s response to the global financial crisis. “The BIS has been a very important meeting point for central bankers during the crisis, and the rationale for its existence has expanded,” said King. “We have had to face challenges that we have never seen before. We had to work out what was going on, what instruments do we use when interest rates are close to zero, how do we communicate policy. We discuss this at home with our staff, but it is very valuable for the governors themselves to get together and talk among themselves.”

Those discussions, say central bankers, must be confidential. “When you are at the top in the number one post, it can be pretty lonely at times. It is helpful to be able to meet other number ones and say, ‘This is my problem, how do you deal with it?’” King continued. “Being able to talk informally and openly about our experiences has been immensely valuable. We are not speaking in a public forum. We can say what we really think and believe, and we can ask questions and benefit from others.”

The BIS management works hard to ensure that the atmosphere is friendly and clubbable throughout the weekend, and it seems they succeed. The bank arranges a fleet of limousines to pick up the governors at Zürich airport and bring them to Basel. Separate breakfasts, lunches, and dinners are organized for the governors of national banks who oversee different types and sizes of national economies, so no one feels excluded. “The central bankers were more at home and relaxed with their fellow central bankers than with their own governments,” recalled Paul Volcker, the former chairman of the US Federal Reserve, who at- tended the Basel weekends. The superb quality of the food and wine made for an easy camaraderie, said Peter Akos Bod, a former governor of the National Bank of Hungary. “The main topics of discussion were the quality of the wine and the stupidity of finance ministers. If you had no knowledge of wine you could not join in the conversation.”

And the conversation is usually stimulating and enjoyable, say central bankers. The contrast between the Federal Open Markets Committee at  the US Federal Reserve, and the Sunday evening G-10 governors’ dinners was notable, recalled Laurence Meyer, who served as a member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve from 1996 until 2002. The chairman of the Federal Reserve did not always represent the bank at the Basel meetings, so Meyer occasionally attended. The BIS discussions were always lively, focused and thought provoking. “At FMOC meetings, while I was at the Fed, almost all the Committee members read statements which had been prepared in advance. They very rarely referred to statements by other Committee members and there was almost never an exchange between two members or an ongoing discussion about the outlook or policy options. At BIS dinners people actually talk to each other and the discussions are always stimulating and interactive focused on the serious issues facing the global economy.”

All the governors present at the two-day gathering are assured of total confidentiality, discretion, and the highest levels of security. The meetings take place on several floors that are usually used only when the governors are in attendance. The governors are provided with a dedicated office and the necessary support and secretarial staff. The Swiss authorities have no juridisdiction over the BIS premises. Founded by an international treaty, and further protected by the 1987 Headquarters Agreement with the Swiss government, the BIS enjoys similar protections to those granted to the headquarters of the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and diplomatic embassies. The Swiss authorities need the permission of the BIS management to enter the bank’s buildings, which are described as “inviolable.”

The BIS has the right to communicate in code and to send and receive correspondence in bags covered by the same protection as embassies, meaning they cannot be opened. The BIS is exempt from Swiss taxes. Its employees do not have to pay income tax on their salaries, which are usually generous, designed to compete with the private sector. The general man- ager’s salary in 2011 was 763,930 Swiss francs, while head of departments were paid 587,640 per annum, plus generous allowances. The bank’s extraordinary legal privileges also extend to its staff and directors. Senior managers enjoy a special status, similar to that of diplomats, while carrying out their duties in Switzerland, which means their bags cannot be searched (unless there is evidence of a blatant criminal act), and their papers are inviolable. The central bank governors traveling to Basel for the bimonthly meetings enjoy the same status while in Switzerland. All bank officials are immune under Swiss law, for life, for all the acts carried out during the discharge of their duties. The bank is a popular place to work and not just because of the salaries. Around six hundred staff come from over fifty countries. The atmosphere is multi-national and cosmopolitan, albeit very Swiss, emphasizing the bank’s hierarchy. Like many of those working for the UN or the IMF, some of the staff of the BIS, especially senior management, are driven by a sense of mission, that they are working for a higher, even celestial purpose and so are immune from normal considerations of accountability and transparency.

The bank’s management has tried to plan for every eventuality so that the Swiss police need never be called. The BIS headquarters has high-tech sprinkler systems with multiple back-ups, in-house medical facilities, and its own bomb shelter in the event of a terrorist attack or armed conflagration. The BIS’s assets are not subject to civil claims under Swiss law and can never be seized.

The BIS strictly guards the bankers’ secrecyThe minutes, agenda, and actual attendance list of the Global Economy Meeting or the ECC are not released in any form. This is because no official minutes are taken, although the bankers sometimes scribble their own notes. Sometimes there will be a brief press conference or bland statement afterwards but never anything detailed. This tradition of privileged confidentiality reaches back to the bank’s foundation.

“The quietness of Basel and its absolutely nonpolitical character provide a perfect setting for those equally quiet and nonpolitical gatherings,” wrote one American official in 1935. “The regularity of the meetings and their al- most unbroken attendance by practically every member of the Board make them such they rarely attract any but the most meager notice in the press.” Forty years on, little had changed. Charles Coombs, a former foreign exchange chief of the New York Federal Reserve, attended governors’ meetings from 1960 to 1975. The bankers who were allowed inside the inner sanctum of the governors’ meetings trusted each other absolutely, he recalled in his memoirs. “However much money was involved, no agreements were ever signed nor memoranda of understanding ever initialized. The word of each official was sufficient, and there were never any disappointments.”

What, then, does this matter to the rest of us? Bankers have been gathering confidentially since money was first invented. Central bankers like to view themselves as the high priests of finance, as technocrats overseeing arcane monetary rituals and a financial liturgy understood only by a small, self-selecting elite.

But the governors who meet in Basel every other month are public servants. Their salaries, airplane tickets, hotel bills, and lucrative pensions when they retire are paid out of the public purse. The national reserves held by central banks are public money, the wealth of nations. The central bankers’ discussions at the BIS, the information that they share, the policies that are evaluated, the opinions that are exchanged, and the subsequent decisions that are taken, are profoundly political. Central bankers, whose independence is constitutionally protected, control monetary policy in the developed world. They manage the supply of money to national economies. They set interest rates, thus deciding the value of our savings and investments. They decide whether to focus on austerity or growth. Their decisions shape our lives.

The BIS’s tradition of secrecy reaches back through the decades. During the 1960s, for example, the bank hosted the London Gold Pool. Eight countries pledged to manipulate the gold market to keep the price at around thirty-five dollars per ounce, in line with the provisions of the Bretton Woods Accord that governed the post–World War II international financial system. Although the London Gold Pool no longer exists, its successor is the BIS Markets Committee, which meets every other month on the occasion of the governors’ meetings to discuss trends in the financial markets. Officials from twenty-one central banks attend. The committee releases occasional papers, but its agenda and discussions remain secret.

Nowadays the countries represented at the Global Economy Meetings together account for around four-fifths of global gross domestic product (GDP)— most of the produced wealth of the world—according to the BIS’s own statistics. Central bankers now “seem more powerful than politicians,” wrote The Economist newspaper, “holding the destiny of the global economy in their hands.” How did this happen? The BIS, the world’s most secretive global financial institution, can claim much of the credit. From its first day of existence, the BIS has dedicated itself to furthering the interests of central banks and building the new architecture of transnational finance. In doing so, it has spawned a new class of close-knit global technocrats whose members glide between highly-paid positions at the BIS, the IMF, and central and commercial banks.

The founder of the technocrats’ cabal was Per Jacobssen, the Swedish economist who served as the BIS’s economic adviser from 1931 to 1956. The bland title belied his power and reach. Enormously influential, well connected, and highly regarded by his peers, Jacobssen wrote the first BIS annual reports, which were—and remain—essential reading throughout the world’s treasuries. Jacobssen was an early supporter of European federalism. He argued relentlessly against inflation, excessive government spending, and state intervention in the economy. Jacobssen left the BIS in 1956 to take over the IMF. His legacy still shapes our world. The consequences of his mix of economic liberalism, price obsession, and dismantling of national sovereignty play out nightly in the European news bulletins on our television screens.

The BIS’s defenders deny that the organization is secretive. The bank’s archives are open and researchers may consult most documents that are more than thirty years old. The BIS archivists are indeed cordial, helpful, and professional. The bank’s website includes all its annual reports, which are downloadable, as well as numerous policy papers produced by the bank’s highly regarded research department. The BIS publishes detailed accounts of the securities and derivatives markets, and international banking statistics. But these are largely compilations and analyses of information already in the public domain. The details of the bank’s own core activities, including much of its banking operations for its customers, central banks, and international organizations, remain secret. The Global Economy Meetings and the other crucial financial gatherings that take place at Basel, such as the Markets Committee, remain closed to outsiders. Private individuals may not hold an account at BIS, unless they work for the bank. The bank’s opacity, lack of accountability, and ever-increasing influence raises profound questions— not just about monetary policy but transparency, accountability, and how power is exercised in our democracies.

WHEN I EXPLAINED to friends and acquaintances that I was writing a book about the Bank for International Settlements, the usual response was a puzzled look, followed by a question: “The bank for what?” My interlocutors were intelligent people, who follow current affairs. Many had some interest in and understanding of the global economy and financial crisis. Yet only a handful had heard of the BIS. This was strange, as the BIS is the most important bank in the world and predates both the IMF and the World Bank. For decades it has stood at the center of a global network of money, power, and covert global influence.

The BIS was founded in 1930. It was ostensibly set up as part of the Young Plan to administer German reparations payments for the First World War. The bank’s key architects were Montagu Norman, who was the governor of the Bank of England, and Hjalmar Schacht, the president of the Reichsbank who described the BIS as “my” bank. The BIS’s founding members were the central banks of Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, and a consortium of Japanese banks. Shares were also offered to the Federal Reserve, but the United States, suspicious of anything that might infringe on its national sovereignty, refused its allocation. Instead a consortium of commercial banks took up the shares: J. P. Morgan, the First National Bank of New York, and the First National Bank of Chicago.

The real purpose of the BIS was detailed in its statutes: to “promote the cooperation of central banks and to provide additional facilities for international financial operations.” It was the culmination of the central bankers’ decades-old dream, to have their own bank—powerful, independent, and free from interfering politicians and nosy reporters. Most felicitous of all, the BIS was self-financing and would be in perpetuity. Its clients were its own founders and shareholders— the central banks. During the 1930s, the BIS was the central meeting place for a cabal of central bankers, dominated by Norman and Schacht. This group helped rebuild Germany. The New York Times described Schacht, widely acknowledged as the genius behind the resurgent German economy, as “The Iron-Willed Pilot of Nazi Finance.” During the war, the BIS became a de-facto arm of the Reichsbank, accepting looted Nazi gold and carrying out foreign exchange deals for Nazi Germany.

The bank’s alliance with Berlin was known in Washington, DC, and London. But the need for the BIS to keep functioning, to keep the new channels of transnational finance open, was about the only thing all sides agreed on. Basel was the perfect location, as it is perched on the northern edge of Switzerland and sits al- most on the French and German borders. A few miles away, Nazi and Allied soldiers were fighting and dying. None of that mattered at the BIS. Board meetings were suspended, but relations between the BIS staff of the belligerent nations remained cordial, professional, and productive. Nationalities were irrelevantThe overriding loyalty was to international finance. The president, Thomas McKittrick, was an American. Roger Auboin, the general manager, was French. Paul Hechler, the assistant general manager, was a member of the Nazi party and signed his correspondence “Heil Hitler.” Rafaelle Pilotti, the secretary general, was Italian. Per Jacobssen, the bank’s influential economic adviser, was Swedish. His and Pilotti’s deputies were British.

After 1945, five BIS directors, including Hjalmar Schacht, were charged with war crimes. Germany lost the war but won the economic peace, in large part thanks to the BIS. The international stage, contacts, banking networks, and legitimacy the BIS provided, first to the Reichsbank and then to its successor banks, has helped ensure the continuity of immensely powerful financial and economic interests from the Nazi era to the present day.

* * *

FOR THE FIRST forty-seven years of its existence, from 1930 to 1977, the BIS was based in a former hotel, near the Basel central railway station. The bank’s entrance was tucked away by a chocolate shop, and only a small notice confirmed that the narrow doorway opened into the BIS. The bank’s managers believed that those who needed to know where the BIS was would find it, and the rest of the world certainly did not need to know. The inside of the building changed little over the decades, recalled Charles Coombs. The BIS provided the “the spartan accommodations of a former Victorian-style hotel whose single and double bedrooms had been transformed into offices simply by removing the beds and installing desks.”

The bank moved into its current headquarters, at 2, Centralbahnplatz, in 1977. It did not go far and now overlooks the Basel central station. Nowadays the BIS’s main mission, in its own words, is threefold: “to serve central banks in their pursuit of monetary and financial stability, to foster international cooperation in these areas, and to act as a bank for central banks.” The BIS also hosts much of the practical and technical infrastructure that the global network of central banks and their commercial counterparts need to function smoothly. It has two linked trading rooms: at the Basel headquarters and Hong Kong regional office. The BIS buys and sells gold and foreign exchange for its clients. It provides asset management and arranges short-term credit to central banks when needed.

The BIS is a unique institution: an international organization, an extremely profitable bank and a research institute founded, and protected, by international treaties. The BIS is accountable to its customers and shareholdersthe central banks—but also guides their operations. The main tasks of a central bank, the BIS argues, are to control the flow of credit and the volume of currency in circulation, which will ensure a stable business climate, and to keep exchange rates within manageable bands to ensure the value of a currency and so smooth international trade and capital movements. This is crucial, especially in a globalized economy, where markets react in microseconds and perceptions of economic stability and value are almost as important as reality itself.

The BIS also helps to supervise commercial banks, although it has no legal powers over them. The Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, based at the BIS, regulates commercial banks’ capital and liquidity requirements. It requires banks to have a minimum capital of eight percent of risk-weighted assets when lending, meaning that if a bank has risk-weighted assets of $100 million it must maintain at least $8 million capital. The committee has no powers of enforcement, but it does have enormous moral authority. “This regulation is so powerful that the eight percent principle has been set into national laws,” said Peter Akos Bod. “It’s like voltage. Voltage has been set at 220. You may decide on ninety-five volts, but it would not work.” In theory, sensible housekeeping and mutual cooperation, overseen by the BIS, will keep the global financial system functioning smoothly. In theory.

The reality is that we have moved beyond recession into a deep structural crisis, one fueled by the banks’ greed and rapacity, which threatens all of our financial security. Just as in the 1930s, parts of Europe face economic collapse. The Bundesbank and the European Central Bank, two of the most powerful members of the BIS, have driven the mania for austerity that has already forced one European country, Greece, to the edge, aided by the venality and corruption of the country’s ruling class. Others may soon follow. The old order is creaking, its political and financial institutions corroding from within. From Oslo to Athens, the far right is resurgent, fed in part by soaring poverty and unemployment. Anger and cynicism are corroding citizens’ faith in democracy and the rule of law. Once again, the value of property and assets is vaporizing before their owners’ eyes. The European currency is threatened with breakdown, while those with money seek safe haven in Swiss francs or gold. The young, the talented, and the mobile are again fleeing their home countries for new lives abroad. The powerful forces of international capital that brought the BIS into being, and which granted the bank its power and influence, are again triumphant.

The BIS sits at the apex of an international financial system that is falling apart at the seams, but its officials argue that it does not have the power to act as an international financial regulator. Yet the BIS cannot escape its responsibility for the Euro-zone crisis. From the first agreements in the late 1940s on multilateral payments to the establishment of the Europe Central Bank in 1998, the BIS has been at the heart of the European integration project, providing technical expertise and the financial mechanisms for currency harmonization. During the 1950s, it managed the European Payments Union, which internationalized the continent’s payment system. The BIS hosted the Governors’ Committee of European Economic Community central bankers, set up in 1964, which coordinated trans-European monetary policy. During the 1970s, the BIS ran the “Snake,” the mechanism by which European currencies were held in exchange rate bands. During the 1980s the BIS hosted the Delors Committee, whose report in 1988 laid out the path to European Monetary Union and the adoption of a single currency. The BIS midwifed the European Monetary Institute (EMI), the precursor of the European Central Bank. The EMI’s president was Alexandre Lamfalussy, one of the world’s most influential economists, known as the “Father of the euro.” Before joining the EMI in 1994, Lamfalussy had worked at the BIS for seventeen years, first as economic adviser, then as the bank’s general manager.

For a staid, secretive organization, the BIS has proved surprisingly nimble. It survived the first global depression, the end of reparations payments and the gold standard (two of its main reasons for existence), the rise of Nazism, the Second World War, the Bretton Woods Accord, the Cold War, the financial crises of the 1980s and 1990s, the birth of the IMF and World Bank, and the end of Communism. As Malcolm Knight, manager from 2003–2008, noted, “It is encouraging to see that—by remaining small, flexible, and free from political interference—the Bank has, throughout its history, succeeded remarkably well in adapting itself to evolving circumstances.”

The bank has made itself a central pillar of the global financial system. As well as the Global Economy Meetings, the BIS hosts four of the most important international committees dealing with global banking: the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision, the Committee on the Global Financial System, the Committee on Payment and Settlement Systems, and the Irving Fisher Committee, which deals with central banking statistics. The bank also hosts three independent organizations: two groups dealing with insurance and the Financial Stability Board (FSB). The FSB, which coordinates national financial authorities and regulatory policies, is already being spoken of as the fourth pillar of the global financial system, after the BIS, the IMF and the commercial banks.

The BIS is now the world’s thirtieth-largest holder of gold reserves, with 119 metric tons—more than Qatar, Brazil, or Canada. Membership of the BIS remains a privilege rather than a right. The board of directors is responsible for admitting central banks judged to “make a substantial contribution to international monetary cooperation and to the Bank’s activities.” China, India, Russia, and Saudi Arabia joined only in 1996. The bank has opened offices in Mexico City and Hong Kong but remains very Eurocentric. Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Slovenia, and Slovakia (total population 16.2 million) have been admitted, while Pakistan (population 169 million) has not. Nor has Kazakhstan, which is a powerhouse of Central Asia. In Africa only Algeria and South Africa are members—Nigeria, which has the continent’s second-largest economy, has not been admitted. (The BIS’s defenders say that it demands high governance standards from new members and when the national banks of countries such as Nigeria and Pakistan reach those standards, they will be considered for membership.)

Considering the BIS’s pivotal role in the transnational economy, its low profile is remarkable. Back in 1930 a New York Times reporter noted that the culture of secrecy at the BIS was so strong that he was not permitted to look inside the boardroom, even after the directors had left. Little has changed. Journalists are not allowed inside the headquarters while the Global Economy Meeting is underway. BIS officials speak rarely on the record, and reluctantly, to members of the press. The strategy seems to work. The Occupy Wall Street movement, the anti-globalizers, the social network protesters have ignored the BIS. Centralbahnplatz 2, Basel, is quiet and tranquil. There are no demonstrators gathered outside the BIS’s headquarters, no protestors camped out in the nearby park, no lively reception committees for the world’s central bankers.

As the world’s economy lurches from crisis to crisis, financial institutions are scrutinized as never before. Legions of reporters, bloggers, and investigative journalists scour the banks’ every move. Yet somehow, apart from brief mentions on the financial pages, the BIS has largely managed to avoid critical scrutinyUntil now!

The true story of how international banksters destroyed our Constitutional Republic from within.

From Olddog: Conversion from PDF to word document is not an easy task. Please excuse the lack of normal formatting. THIS IS A MUST READ DOCUMENT!!!

PLEASE NOTE: The following research was done by John B. Nelson on behalf of the American people and those who considered themselves to be Coloradoans. While Mr. Nelson’s research will shock and dismay most who read it, it will be impossible for anyone to fix our Constitutional Republic if we remain unaware of the fraudulent changes that have been inflicted on our country by the international banksters and their BAR attorneys. The book Fruit from a Poisonous Tree by attorney Melvin Stamper is recommended as a companion to this work. His book is available on Amazon or at Barnes and Noble. Disclaimer The original work and research of John B. Nelson has been reformatted by the AntiCorruption Society.com into this booklet. The references have been relocated into footnotes to make the contents easier to read. John’s work was not copyrighted as he meant to freely share it with all Americans. We are very grateful to John B. Nelson for the many hours (years?) he dedicated to researching the carnage the international bankers and their BAR attorneys have inflicted on the American people. 2 OHN B NELSON TO: The American National People, The People of The State of Colorado, U.S.A. February 21, 1992 DECLARATION OF CAUSE AND NECESSITY TO ABOLISH AND DECLARATION OF SEPARATE AND EQUAL STATION I have enclosed Senate Report No. 93-549, 93rd Congress, 1st Session (1973), “Summary Of Emergency Power Statutes”, consisting of 607 pages, which I believe you will find most interesting. The United States went “Bankrupt” in 1933 and was declared so by President Roosevelt by Executive Orders 6073, 6102, 6111 and by Executive Order 6260 on March 9, 1933,1 under the “Trading with The Enemy Act”2 , and as codified at 12 U.S.C.A. 95a. On May 23, 1933, Congressman, Louis T. McFadden, brought formal charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Bank System, the Comptroller of the Currency and the Secretary of the United States Treasury for criminal acts. The petition for Articles of Impeachment was thereafter referred to the Judiciary Committee, and has yet to be acted upon.3 Congress confirmed the Bankruptcy on June 5, 1933, and impaired the obligations and considerations of contracts through the “Joint Resolution To Suspend The Gold Standard And Abrogate The Gold Clause, June 5, 1933″. 4 The several States of the Union pledged the faith and credit thereof to the aid of the National Government, and formed numerous socialist committees, such as the “Council Of State Governments”, “Social Security Administration” etc., to purportedly deal with the economic “Emergency.” These 1 See: Senate Report 93-549, pgs. 187 & 594 2 Sixty-Fifth Congress, Sess. I, Chs. 105, 106, October 5, 1917 3 See: Congressional Record, pp. 4055-4058 4 See: House Joint Resolution 192, 73rd Congress, 1st Session 3 rganizations operated under the “Declaration of INTERdependence” of January 22, 1937, and published some of their activities in “The Book of the States.” The 1937 edition of the Book of the States openly declared that the people engaged in such activities as the Farming/Husbandry Industry had been reduced to mere feudal “Tenants” on their Land.5 This of course was compounded by such activities as price fixing wheat and grains,6 quota regulations,7 and livestock products,8 which have been consistently below the costs of production, interest on loans and inflation of the paper “Bills of Credit”, leaving the food producers and others in a state of peonage and involuntary servitude, constituting the taking of private property, for the benefit and use of others, without just compensation. NOTE: The Council Of State governments has now been absorbed into such things as the “National Conference Of Commissioners On Uniform State Laws”, whose Headquarters Office is located at 676 North St. Clair Street, Suite 1700, Chicago, Illinois 60611, and “all” being “members of the Bar”, and operating under a different “Constitution and By Laws”, far distant from the depositories of the public Records, has promulgated, lobbied for, passed, adjudicated and ordered the implementation and execution of their purported “Uniform” and “Model” Acts and pretended statutory provisions, to “help implement international treaties of the United States or where world uniformity would be desirable.”9 This is apparently what Robert Bork meant when he wrote “we are governed not by law or elected representatives but by an unelected, unrepresentative, unaccountable committee of lawyers applying no will but their own.”10 This association has been engaged in activities such as turning “Marriage” (licensed) into “International Private Law”, through its International Liaisons, which meet at such places as the Hague Conferences.11 5 Book Of The States, 1937, pg. 155 6 7 U.S.C.A. 1332 7 7 U.S.C.A. 1371 8 7 U.S.C.A. 1903 9 See: 1990/91 Reference Book, National Council Of Commissioners On Uniform State Laws, pg. 2 10 See: The Tempting Of America, Robert H.

Just as the 1938 Rules ABOLISHED THE DISTINCTION between ACTIONS AT LAW and SUITS IN EQUITY, this change would ABOLISH THE DISTINCTION between CIVIL ACTIONS and SUITS IN ADMIRALTY.”15 The United States thereafter entered the Second World War during which time the “League of Nations” was reinstituted under pretense of the “United Nations”16, and the “Bank For International Settlements” reinstituted under pretense of the “Bretton Woods Agreement”17 as the “International Monetary Fund” (The Fund)18 and the International Bank For Reconstruction And Development” (The Bank)19. The United States as a corporate body politic (artificial) came out of World War II in worse economic shape than when it entered, and in 1950 declared Bankruptcy and “Reorganization.” The Reorganization is located in Title 5 of United States Codes Annotated. The “Explanation” at the beginning of 5 U.S.C.A. is most informative reading. The “Secretary of Treasury” was appointed as the “Receiver” in Bankruptcy.20 The United States went down the road and periodically filed for further Reorganization. Things and situations worsened, having done what they were Commanded NOT to do,21 and in 1965 passed the “Coinage Act of 1965″ completely debasing the Constitutional Coin (gold & silver i.e. Dollar).22 At the signing of the Coinage Act on July 23, 1965, then President Lyndon B. Johnson stated in his Press Release that: 15 Federal Rules Of Civil Procedure, 1982 Ed., pg. 17, also see, Federalist Papers No. 83; Declaration Of Resolves Of The First Continental Congress; Oct. 14, 1774, Declaration Of Cause And Necessity Of Taking Up Arms; July 6, 1775, Declaration of Independence; July 4, 1776, Bennet vs. Butterworth, 52 U.S. 669 16 See: 22 U.S.C.A. 287 et. seq. 17 See: 60 Stat. 1401, 22 U.S.C.A. 286 et. seq. 18 [Referredf to as the IMF] 19 [Known today as the World Bank] 20 See: Reorganization Plan No. 26, 5 U.S.C.A. 903, Public Law 94-564, Legislative History, pg. 5967 21 See: Madison’s Notes , Constitutional Convention, August 16, 1787, Federalist Papers No. 44 [formed a corporation masquerading as a government] 22 See: 18 U.S.C.A. 331 & 332, U.S. vs. Marigold, 50 U.S. 560, 13 L.Ed. 257 6 When I have signed this bill before me, we will have made the first fundamental change in our coinage in 173 years. The Coinage Act of 1965 supersedes the Act of 1792. And that Act had the title: An Act Establishing a Mint and Regulating the Coinage of the United States….” “Now I will sign this bill to make the first change in our coinage system since the 18th Century. To those members of Congress, who are here on this historic occasion, I want to assure you that in making this change from the 18th Century we have no idea of returning to it.” It is important to take cognizance of the fact that NO Constitutional Amendment was ever obtained to FUNDAMENTALLY CHANGE, amend, abridge or abolish the Constitutional mandates, provisions or prohibitions, but due to internal and external diversions surrounding the Viet Nam War etc., the usurpation and breach went basically unchallenged and unnoticed by the general public at large, who became “a wealthy man’s cannon fodder or cheap source of SLAVE LABOR.”23 Congress was clearly delegated the Power and Authority to regulate and maintain the true and inherent “value” of the Coin within the scope and purview of Article I, Section 8, Clauses 5 & 6 and Article I, Section 10, Clause 1, of the ordained Constitution (1787), and further, under a corresponding duty and obligation to maintain said gold and silver Coin and Foreign Coin at and within the necessary and proper “equal weights and measures” clause.24 Those exercising the Offices of the several States, in equal measure, knew such “De Facto Transitions” were unlawful and unauthorized, but sanctioned, implemented and enforced the complete debauchment and the resulting “governmental, social, industrial economic change” in the “De Jure” States and in United State of America,25 and were and are now 23 See: Silent Weapons For Quiet Wars, TM-SW7905.1, pgs. 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, 13 & 56 24 See also: Bible, Dueteronomy, Chapter 25, verses 13 thru 16, Proverbs, Chapter 16, verse 11, Public Law 97-289, 96 Stat. 1211 25 See: Public Law 94-564, Legislative History, pg. 5936, 5945, 31 U.S.C.A. 314, 31 U.S.C.A 321, 31 U.S.C.A. 5112, C.R.S. 11-61-101 C.R.S. 39-22-103.5 and C.R.S. 18-11-203 7 under the delusion that they can do both directly and indirectly what they were absolutely prohibited from doing.26 In 1966, Congress being severely compromised, passed the “Federal Tax Lien Act of 1966″, by which the entire taxing and monetary system i.e. “Essential Engine”27 was placed under the Uniform Commercial Code.28 The Uniform Commercial Code was of course promulgated by the National Conference of Commissioners On Uniform State Laws in collusion with American Law Institute for the “banking and business interests.”29 The United States being engaged in numerous United Nation conflicts, including the Korean and the Viet Nam Conflicts, which were under direction of the United Nations,30 and agreeing to foot the bill,31 and not being able to honor their obligations and re-hypothecated debt credit, openly and publicly dishonored and disavowed their “Notes” and “Obligations”32 i.e. “Federal Reserve Notes” Through Public Law 90- 269, Section 2, 82 Stat. 50 (1968) to wit: 26 See: also, Federalist Papers No. 44, Craig vs. Missouri , 4 Peters 903 27 See: Federalist Papers No. 31 28 See: Public Law 89-719 , Legislative History, pg. 3722, also see; C.R.S. 5-1- 106 29 See: Handbook Of The National Conference Of Commissioners On Uniform State Laws.

The first sentence of section 15 of the Federal Reserve Act33 is amended by striking ‘and the funds provided in this Act for the redemption of Federal Reserve Notes’.” Things steadily grew worse and on March 28, 1970, then President Nixon issued Proclamation No. 3972, declaring an “emergency” because the Postal Employees struck against the de facto government (?) for higher pay, due to inflation of the paper “Bills of Credit.”34 Nixon placed the U.S. Postal Department under the control of the “Department of Defense.”35 The System had been faltering for a decade, but the bench mark date of the collapse is put at August 15, 1971. On this day, then President Nixon reversed U.S. International Monetary Policy by officially declaring the non-convertibility of the “U.S. dollar” (the Federal Reserve Note (FRN)) into gold.”36 On September 21, 1973, Congress passed Public Law 93- 110, amending the Bretton Woods Par Value Modification Act37 and reiterated the “Emergency”38, and which included “reports on foreign currency transactions.”39 This act further declared in Section 2 (b) that: “No provision of any law in effect on the date of enactment of this Act, and no rule, regulation, or order under authority of any such law, may be construed to prohibit any person from purchasing, holding, selling, or otherwise dealing with gold.” On January 19, 1976, Marjorie S. Holt noted for the record, a second “Declaration Of INTER-dependence” and clearly identified the U.N. as a “Communist” organization, and that they were seeking both production 33 12 U.S.C. 391 34 See: Senate Report No. 93-549, pg. 596 35 See: Department Of the Army Field Manual, FM 41-10 (1969 ed. 36 See: Public Law 94-564, Legislative History, pg. 5937 & Senate Report No. 93-549, Foreword, pg.

Atkins et al. complained that “As a result of inflation, the compensation of federal judges has been substantially diminished each year since 1969, causing direct and continuing monetary harm to plaintiffs…the real value of the “dollar” (FRN’s) decreased by approximately 34.5 percent from March 15, 1969 to October 1, 1975….As a result, plaintiffs have suffered an unconstitutional deprivation of earnings”, and in the prayer for relief claimed “damages for the constitutional violations enumerated above, measured as the diminution of his earnings for the entire period since March 9, 1969.” It is quite apparent that the persons holding and enjoying Offices of Public Trust, Honor and/or Profit knew of the emergent problem and sought protection for themselves, to the damage and injury of the People and Children, who were classified as “a club that has many other members” who “have no remedy.” And knowing that “heinous” acts had been committed, stated that they [judges/lawyers] would not apply the Law, nor would any substantive remedy be applied (“checked more or less, but never stopped”) “until all of us [judges] are dead.” Such persons fraudulently swore an Oath to uphold, defend and preserve the sovereignty of the Nation and several Republican States of the Union, and breached the Duty to protect the People/Citizens and their Posterity from fraud, imposition, avarice and stealthy encroachment.41 This is verified in Public Law 94-564, Legislative History, pg. 5944, which states: “Moving to a floating exchange rate for international commerce means private enterprise and not central governments bear the risk of currency fluctuations.” 40 See: Congressional Record, January 19, 1976, Extension of remarks; also see, 8 U.S.C.A. 1101 (40) , 50 U.S.C.A. 781 & 783 41 See: Atkins et al. vs. U.S., 556 F.2d 1028, pg. 1072, 1074, The Tempting of America, supra, pgs. 155-159 also see, 5 U.S.C.A. 5305 & 5335, Senate Report No. 93-549, pgs. 69-71, C.R.S. 24-75-101 10 numerous serious debates were held in Congress, including but not limited to, Tuesday, July 27, 1976,42 concerning the International Financial Institutions and its operations. Representative, Ron Paul, Chairman of the House Banking Committee, made numerous references to the true practices of the “International” financial institutions, including but not limited to, the conversion of 27,000,000 (27 million) in gold, contributed by the United States as part of its “quota obligations”, which the International Monetary Fund (Governor-Secretary of Treasury) sold 43, under some very questionable terms and concessions. 44 On October 28, 1977 the passage of Public Law 95-147, 91 Stat. 1227 declared most banking institutions, including State banks, to be under direction and control of the corporate “Governor” of the International Monetary Fund. 45 The Act further declared that: “(2) Section 10(a) of the Gold Reserve Act of 193446 is amended by striking out the phrase ‘stabilizing the exchange value of the dollar’…” (c) The joint resolution entitled ‘Joint resolution to assure uniform value to the coins and currencies of the United States’, approved June 5, 193347 shall not apply to obligations issued on or after the date of enactment of this section.” The International Organizations, Corporations and Associations, had refused to pay their debts and could not pay their debts, and determined that they could pass the loss of their non-redeemable, non-current notes, bonds and evidences of debt off on others, and thereby crown their fraud 42 See: Congressional Record – House, July 27, 1976 43 See: Public Law 94-564, Legislative History, pg. 5945 & 5946 44 Also see: The Ron Paul Money Book, (1991), by Ron Paul, Plantation Publishing, 837 W.

Intrinsically, a dollar bill is just a piece of paper. Deposits are merely book entries. Coins do have some intrinsic value as metal, but generally far less than their face amount….” Compare this with the United States Constitution, which says: “No State shall make anything but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debt…” and which also says: “Congress shall have the power to coin money and regulate the value thereof…” (Italics added for emphasis; this paragraph added to the original John B. Nelson document of February 21, 1992 on July 18, 1999 to reiterate what was stated previously in this document and to demonstrate, first hand, yet another way the Constitution is being usurped, in fact and in intent). “In the absence of legal reserve requirements, banks can build up deposits by increasing loans and investments so long as they keep enough currency on hand to redeem whatever amounts the holders of deposits want to convert into currency. This unique attribute of the banking business was discovered several 48 See: Letter, October 26, 1989 from Department of Treasury, Russell L.

At one time, bankers were merely middlemen. They made profit by accepting gold and coins brought to them for safekeeping and lending them to borrowers. But they soon found that the receipts they issued to depositors were being used as money since whoever held them could go to the banker and exchange them for metallic money. Then bankers discovered that they could make loans merely by giving borrowers their promises to pay (bank notes). In this way, banks began to create money. More notes could be issued than the gold and coin on hand because only a portion of the notes outstanding would be presented for payment at any one time. Enough metallic money had to be kept on hand, of course, to redeem whatever volume of notes was presented for payment. Transaction deposits are the modern counter-part of bank notes. It was a small step from printing notes to making book entries to the credit of borrowers which the borrowers, in turn, could “spend” by writing checks, thereby “printing their own money.”53 Fifty nine (59) years is NOT “temporary.” It’s a permanent state of “Emergency”, and was clearly instituted, formed and erected within the Union through gross usurpations, abridgments, malfeasance and breach of legal duties, and the continual contrivance, misrepresentation, conversion, fluctuations, fraud and avarice of the International Financial Institutions, Organizations, Corporations and Associations, including the Federal Reserve, their “fiscal and depository agent” 54. This profligate practice has led to such “Emergency” legislation as the “Public Debt Limit-Balance Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985″, Public Law 99-177, etc. The government by becoming a corporator, 55 lays down its sovereignty and takes on that of a private citizen. It can exercise no power which is 53 See: Modern Money Mechanics , a workbook on deposits currency and bank reserves., 1982 Rev. Ed., Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, P.O.

Honor is earned by honesty and integrity, not under false and fraudulent pretenses, nor will the color of the cloth one wears cover-up the usurpations, lies, trickery and deceits. When Black is fraudulently declared to be White, not all will live in darkness. As astutely observed by Will Rogers, “there are men running governments who shouldn’t be allowed to play with matches”, and is as applicable today as Jesus’ statements about Lawyers. The contrived “emergency” has created numerous abuses and usurpations, and abridgments of delegated Powers and Authority. As stated in Senate Report 93-549: “Since March 9, 1933, the United States has been in a state of declared national emergency. In fact, there are now in effect four presidentially proclaimed states of national emergency: In addition to the national emergency declared by President Roosevelt in 1933, there are also the national emergency proclaimed by President Truman on December 16, 1950, during the Korean conflict, and the states of national emergency declared by President Nixon on March 23, 1970, and August 15, 1971. These proclamations give force to 470 provisions of Federal Law. These hundreds of statutes delegate to the President extraordinary powers, ordinarily exercised by the Congress, which affect the lives of American citizens in a host of alien-compassing manners. This vast range of powers, taken 56 See: The Bank of the United States vs. Planters Bank of Georgia, 6 L. Ed. (9 Wheat) 244, U.S. vs. Burr, 309 U.S. 242 57 22 U.S.C.A 286, et seq., C.R.S. 11-60-103 58 See: 31 U.S.C.A. 5323 14 together, confer enough authority to rule the country without reference to normal constitutional process. Under the powers delegated by these statutes, 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 enterprise; restrict travel; and in a plethora of particular ways, control the lives of all American citizens.” (See: Foreword, pg. III). The “Introduction”, on page 1, begins with a phenomenal declaration, to wit: “A majority of the people of the United States have lived all of their lives under emergency rule. For 40 years, freedoms and governmental procedures guaranteed by the Constitution have in varying degrees been abridged by laws brought into force by states of national emergency…” According to the research done in 16 American Jurisprudence, 2nd Edition, Sections 71 and 82, no “emergency” justifies a violation of any Constitutional provision. Arguendo, “Supremacy Clause” and “Separation of Powers”, it is clearly admitted in Senate Report No. 93- 549 that abridgment has occurred. The statements heard in the federal and state Tribunals, on numerous occasions, that Constitutional arguments are “immaterial”, “frivolous” etc., is based upon the concealment, furtherance and compounding of the Frauds and “Emergency” created and sustained by the “Expatriated”, ALIENS of the United Nations and its Organizations, Corporations and Associations.59 8 U.S.C.A. 1481 is one of the controlling statutes on expatriation, as is 22 U.S.C.A. 611, 612 & 613 and 50 U.S.C.A. 781. The Internal Revenue Service entered into a “service agreement” with the U.S. Treasury Department60 and the Agency for International Development, pursuant to Treasury Delegation Order No. 91. The 59 See: Letter , Insight Magazine, February 18, 1991, pg. 7, Lowell L. Flanders, President, U.N. Staff Union, New York 60 See: Public Law 94-564, Legislative History, pg. 5967, Reorganization Plan No. 26 15 agency For International Development is an International paramilitary operation, 61 and includes such activities as “Assumption of full or partial executive, legislative, and judicial authority over a country or area.”62 It is to be further observed that the “Agreement” regarding the Headquarters District of the United Nations was NOT agreed to 63 and is illegally in the Country in the first instant. The International Organizational intents, purposes and activities include complete control of “Public Finance” i.e. “control, supervision, and audit of indigenous fiscal resources; budget practices, taxation, expenditures of public funds, currency issues, and banking agencies and affiliates.”64 This of course complies with “Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars” Research Technical Manual (TM-SW7905.1), which discloses a declaration of war upon the American people (See: pg. 3 & 7), monetary control by the Internationalist, through information etc. solicited and collected by the Internal Revenue Service 65 and who is operating and enforcing the seditious International program. (See: TM-SW7905.1, pg. 52). The 1985 Edition of the Department Of Army Field Manual, FM 41-10 further describes the International “Civil Affairs” operations. At page 3-6 it is admitted that the A.I.D. is autonomous and under direction of the International Development Cooperation Agency, and at page 3-8 that the operation is “paramilitary.” The International Organization(s) intents and purposes was to promote, implement, and enforce a “DICTATORSHIP OVER FINANCE IN THE UNITED STATES.”66 It appears from the documentary evidence that the Internal Revenue Service Agents. etc., are “Agents of a Foreign Principal” within the meaning and intent of the “Foreign Agents Registration Act of 1938.” They are directed and controlled by the corporate “Governor” of “The 61 See: Department Of The Army Field Manual, (1969) FM 41-10, pgs. 1-4, Sec. 1-7(b) & 1-6, Section 1-10(7) (c)(1), 22 U.S.C.A. 284 62 (See: FM 41-10, pg. 1-7, Section 110(7)(c)(4)) also see, Agreement Between The United Nations And The United States Of America Regarding The Headquarters Of the United Nations, Section 7(d) & (8), 22 U.S.C.A 287 (1979 Ed.) at pg. 241). 63 See: Congressional Record – Senate, December 13, 1967, Mr. Thurmond 64 See: FM 41-10, pgs.2-30 thru 2-31, Section 251.

Along with the other documentary evidence submitted herewith, this should absolve any further doubt as to the true character of the party. Such restrictions as “For the general welfare and common defense of the United States” 76 apparently aren’t applicable, and the fraudulent re-hypothecated debt credit will be merely added to the insolvent nature of the continual “emergency”, and the reciprocal socio/economic repercussions laid upon present and future generations. Among other reasons for lack of authority to act, such as a Foreign Agents Registration Statement, 22 U.S.C.A. 612 and 18 U.S.C.A. 219 & 951, military authority cannot be imposed into civil affairs.77 The United Nations Charter, Article 2, Section 7, further prohibits the U.N. from “intervening in matters which are essentially within the domestic 67 See: Public Law 94-564, supra, pg. 5942, U.S. Government Manual 1990/91, pgs. 480 & 481, 26 U.S.C.A 7701 (a)(11), Treasury Delegation Order No. 150- 10 68 22 U.S.C.A 286 & 286a 69 22 U.S.C.A. 611 (c)(ii) 70 Tax-pecuniary contribution, Blacks Law Dic. 5th ed. 71 22 U.S.C.A 611(c)(iii) 72 See: 22 U.S.C.A. 611 (c)(2) 73 See: 22 U.S.C.A. 263a, The United States Government Manual, 1990/91, pg. 385, see also, The Ron Paul Money Book, pg. 250 – 251 74 See: 22 U.S.C.A. 262c(b) 75 See: 22 U.S.C.A. 285g, 22 U.S.C.A. 287j 76 See: Constitution (1787), Article I, Section 8, Clause 1 77 See: Department Of The Army Pamphlet 27100-70, Military Law Review, Vol. 70 17 jurisdiction of any state…” Korea, Viet Nam, Ethiopia, Angola, Kuwait, etc., etc., are evidence enough of the “BAD FAITH” of the United Nations and its Organizations, Corporations and Associations, not to mention the seizing of two day care centers in the State of Minnesota by their agents, and holding the children as collateral/hostages for payment/ransom of their fraudulent, dishonored, re-hypothecated debt credit, worthless securities. Such is the “Rule Of Law” “as envisioned by the Founders” of the United Nations. Such is Communist terrorism, despotism and tyranny. ALL WERE AND ARE OUTLAWED HERE. I hope this communication finds you well and mentally strong for the occasion. It is quite apparent that the “Treasonous” and “Seditious” are brewing up a storm of untold magnitude. Bush’s public address of September 11, 1991 (See: Weekly Compilation of Presidential Documents), should further qualify what is being said here. He admitted “Interdependence” 78, “One World Order” 79, affiliation and collusion with the Soviet Union Oligarchy 80, direction by the U.N.81 , etc. You might also find it interesting that Treasury Delegation Order No. 92 (enclosed) states that the I.R.S. is trained under direction of the Division of “Human Resources” (U.N.) and the Commissioner (INTERNATIONAL), by the “Office of Personnel Management.” In the 1979 Edition of 22 U.S.C.A. 287, The United Nations, at pg. 248, you will find Executive Order No. 10422. The Office of Personnel Management is under direction of the Secretary General of the United Nations. And as stated previously, the I.R.S. is also a member in a one hundred fifty (150) nation pact called the “International Criminal Police Organization”, found at 22 U.S.C.A. 263a. The “Memorandum & Agreement” between the Secretary of Treasury/Corporate Governor of “The Fund” and “The Bank” and the Office of the U.S. Attorney General would indicate that the Attorney General and his associates are soliciting and collecting information for Foreign Principals.82 78 See also: Public Law 94-564, Legislative History, pg. 5950 79 See: also: Extension Of Remarks, January 19, 1976, Marjorie S.

A perusal of this Foreign Constitution should more than qualify the internationalist intents. The “Preamble”, Article 1, “Objectives” and Article 2, “Functions”, clearly evidences their intent to direct, control, finance and subsidize all “natural and human resources” and “agro-related as well as basic industries”, through “dynamic social and economic changes” “with a view to assisting in the establishment of a new international economic order.” The high flown rhetoric is obviously of “Communist” origin and intents. An unelected, unrepresentative, unaccountable oligarchy of expatriates and aliens, who fraudulently claim in the Preamble that they intend to establish “rational and equitable international economic relations”, yet openly declared that they no longer “stabilize the value of the dollar” nor “assure the value of the coin and currency of the United States” is purely misrepresentation, deceit and fraud.84 This was augmented by Public Law 101-167, 103 Stat. 1195, which discloses massive appropriations of re-hypothecated debt credit for the general welfare and common defense of other Foreign Powers, including “Communist ” countries of satellites, International control of natural and human resources, etc., etc. A “Resource” is a claim of “property” and when related to people constitutes “slavery.” It is now necessary to ask which Constitution they are operating under. The “Constitution For The New-states of The United States”, which was located at Liberty Lobby, 300 Independence Ave., SE, Washington, D.C. 20003, was the subject matter of the book entitled “The Emerging Constitution” by Rexford G. Tugwell, which was accomplished under the auspices of the Rockefeller tax-exempt foundation called the “Center For The Study of Democratic Institutions.” The People and Citizens of this Nation were forewarned against formation of “Democracies.” 83 See: 22 U.S.C.A. 613, Rabinowitz vs. Kennedy, 376 U.S. 605, 11 L. Ed. 2d 940, 18 U.S.C.A. 219 & 951 84 See: Public Law 95-147, 91 Stat. 1227, at pg. 1229 19 Democracies have ever been the spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been found incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.”85 This Alien Constitution, however, has nothing to do with democracy in reality. It is the basis of and for a despotic, tyrannical oligarchy. Article I, “Rights and Responsibilities”, Sections 1 and 15  evidence their knowledge of the “emergency.” The Rights of expression, communication, movement, assembly, petition and Habeas Corpus are all excepted from being exercised under and in a “declared emergency.” The Constitution for the New-states of America, openly declares, among other seditious things and delusions that “Until each indicated change in the government shall have been completed the provisions of the existing Constitution and the organs of government shall be in effect”.86 All operations of the national government shall cease as they are replaced by those authorized under this Constitution.”87 This is apparently what Burger was promoting in 1976, after he resigned as Supreme Court Justice and took up the promotion of a “Constitutional Convention.” No trial by jury is mentioned, “JUST” compensation has been removed, along with being informed of the “Nature & Cause of the Accusation” etc., etc., and every one will of course participate in the “democracy.” This Constitution is but a reiteration of the Communist Doctrines, intents and purposes, and clearly establishes a “Police Power” State, under direction and control of a self appointed oligarchy. Apparently the present operation of the “de facto” government is under Foreign/Alien Constitutions, Laws, Rules and Regulations. The overthrow of the “essential engine” declared in and by the ordained and established Constitution for the United States of America (1787), and by and under the “Bill of Rights” (1791) is obvious. The covert procedure used to implement and enforce these Foreign Constitutions, Laws, Procedures, Rules, Regulations, etc., has not, to my knowledge, been collected and assimilated nor presented as evidence to establish seditious collusion and conspiracy. 85 See: Federalist Papers No. 10, also see, The Law, Fredrick Bastiat, Code Of Professional Responsibility, Preamble 86 See: Article XII, Section 3 87 See: Article XII, Section 4 20 importunately and Unfortunately in my Land it is necessary to seek, obtain and present EVIDENCE to sustain a conviction and/or judgment. Our patience and tolerance for those who pervert the very necessary and basic foundations of society has been pushed to insufferable levels. They have “fundamentally” changed the form and substance of the de jure Republican form of Government, exhibited a willful and wanton disregard for the Rights, Safety and Property of others, evinced a despotic design to reduce my people to slavery, peonage and involuntary servitude, under a fraudulent, tyrannical, seditious foreign oligarchy, with intent and purpose to institute, erect and form a “Dictatorship” over the Citizens and our Posterity. They have completely debauched the de jure monetary system, destroyed the Livelihood and Lives of thousands, aided and abetted our enemies, declared War upon us and our Posterity, destroyed untold families and made homeless over 750,000 children in the middle of winter, afflicted widows and orphans, turned Sodomites loose amongst our young, implemented foreign laws, rules, regulations and procedures within the body of the country, incited insurrection, rebellion, sedition and anarchy within the de jure society, illegally entered our Land, taken false Oaths, entered into Seditious Foreign Constitutions, Agreements, Placations, Confederations, and Alliances, and under pretense of “emergency”, which they themselves created, promoted and furthered, formed a multitude of offices and retained those of alien allegiance to perpetuate their frauds and to eat out the substance of the good and productive people of our Land, and have arbitrarily dismissed and held mock trials for those who trespassed upon our Lives, Liberties, Properties and Families and endangered our Peace, Safety, Welfare and Dignity. The damage, injury and costs have been higher than mere money can repay. They have done what they were COMMANDED NOT TO DO. The time for just correction is NOW! Sincere consideration of “Presentment” to a Grand Jury under the ordained and established Constitution for the United States of America (1787), Amendment V is in order. Numerous High Crimes and Misdemeanors have been committed under the Constitution for the United States of America, and Laws made in pursuance thereof, and under the Constitution for the State of Colorado, and the Laws made in Pursuance thereof, and against the Peace and Dignity of the People, including but not limited to, C.R.S. 18-11-203 which defines and prescribes punishment for “Seditious Associations” which is applicable to the other constitutions, and the intents and professed purposes of their 21 organizations, Corporations and Associations. If the Presentment should be obstructed by the members of the Bar, ARREST THEM. I could go on but the story is long! I hope this information and research is of assistance to you. Much remains to be uncovered and disclosed, as it is necessary and imperative to secure the Lives, Liberties, Property, Peace and Dignity of the people and our Posterity. Good Hunting and may the Good Lord be with you in all your endeavors. P.S. In addition, I am yet expecting a copy of the “Service Agreement”, (T.D.O. 91). It was located in the Department of Treasury, office of the Assistant General Counsel, (International Affairs), Russell L. Munk, 1500 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C. 20220. Efforts are being made to obtain a copy, but so far have been obstructed by the BAR. If anyone knows where and how a copy can be obtained please do so immediately, the documents are necessary and imperative. It ought to be most informative! By the way it’s against the law for an insolvent to make a loan or to try to fraudulently collect thereon 88 It should be further noted that an “Alien” or “Denizen” cannot sit on a Jury 89, nor hold a Public Office 90. The “out of court” summary determinations upon matters in issue is purely “Administrative” procedure. 91 The jury, if any, is reduced to an “advisory jury” position, and is more than likely arrayed as a “homage” jury. 88 See: Neal et al. vs. Clark, 251 P. 2d 903 89 See: 3 Am. Jur. 2D §40 90 Also see: 50 U.S.C.A. 781(9) & 842 91 See: 1 Am. Jur. 2d §78 22 U.S.C.A. 701 – 703 should be of interest concerning “Judicial Review” of Agency actions. It can be found in most States under such headings and Acts as the “Administrative Procedures Act” or the “Administrative Reorganization Act.” The de facto Federal/International chartered “Institutions”, their Officers, Employees, Servants, Agents and Representatives are subject to and should be turned over to a Court of Law for prosecution, trial, and judgment according to Law.92 “FRAUD vitiates the most solemn Contracts, documents and even judgments.”93 I believe that the statement made in Cohen vs. Virginia, 6 Wheat 264, 5 L.Ed. 257 (1821) is worthy of note: “We [Courts] have no more right to decline the exercise of jurisdiction which is given, than to usurp that which is not given. THE ONE OR THE OTHER WOULD BE TREASON TO THE CONSTITUTION.”94 ******* DECLARATION OF SEPARATE AND EQUAL STATION WHEN IN THE COURSE OF HUMAN EVENTS . . .

THE TRUTH SCARES THE COWARDS

April 9th, 2015 by

2-23-2015 1-19-07 PM

Within the articles I have posted on http://anationbeguiled.com and http://anationbeguiled.wordpress.com  you will find information that is controversial, infuriating, and totally unexpected by the average American who has considered themselves patriotic, honest, and informed citizens. Unfortunately, most will find this information is not what they WANT to believe, because they WANT America to be a shinning light to the rest of the world; as they were taught in the government controlled education system. They also do not want to be some poor fool who has been beguiled by their government all their lives, and believing what they were taught is much easier than accepting the truth. It is natural for people to want other’s to think good of them, and for that reason they become cognitive dissonant.

However, those who instinctively compare this information to what they see happening and compare it to what they have been taught, will come away with an inner rage at the powers that be and will have a permanent grudge against those who approve of the lies and methods used to fool us.

It’s not easy to accept the DE Facto legal system that makes us all slaves to their corrupt hierarchy; when we have considered our selves the brightest light of freedom all our lives.  Nor is it easy to accept the fact that we do not really own anything; we just rent it from them along with the responsibility to keep it working so they can continue charging us to rent it.

What most people do not consider is our obedience to their draconian legal system is something we can change; if we are willing to fight back. If we muster up the courage to die for our freedom, then there is nothing they can do but end our misery. So we must now face the big question. Is being a miserable slave all our life better than dying? I don’t think so, because if we are not willing to die for our freedom then we are useless, putrid, cowards that do not deserve to live free. Our real enemy is our fear and ignorance. That’s what prevents us from being willing to die fighting. Now you understand why so few are willing to learn and believe. They’re cowards who prefer slavery to freedom. As I said before, knowledge is what produces rage, and rage produces courage, so I have endeavored to supply you with what they have done, how they did it and got away with it, but ultimately the reader must be intelligent enough to recognize the truth by comparing what we were taught to what really happened. We are a subjugated Nation, divided, confused, and afraid. Read, learn, and compare! Then you will have the courage to regain our freedom.

 

God Bless America!

FASCISM UPDATE: This Large Bank Just Announced They’re Closing ALL Gun Shop Accounts

April 8th, 2015 by

http://politistick.com/fascism-update-this-large-bank-just-

announced-theyre-closing-all-gun-shop-accounts/

By Matthew K. Burke

fascism2 Gun Shops1 Second Amendment1 SunTrust Bank1

Obama’s backdoor obliteration of America’s Second Amendment to the Constitution just got a big boost.

While the Obama Regime can’t openly or legally take away Americans’ right to bear arms, through stealth tactics, using its willing accomplices in crony corporatism to put the squeeze on the supply chain to the Second Amendment, gun shops and gun manufacturers, or buying up all the ammo themselves, is their underhanded, “progressive” way to accomplish the same goal.

When American Gun & Pawn of Brooksville, Florida, received the following letter from SunTrust Bank, they were shocked and outraged:

4-8-2015 2-10-49 PM

As you can see, the fascist letter from SunTrust Bank informs the gun shop that they will no longer be serving them (it’s a good thing they aren’t a pizzeria in Indiana!), and that they must quickly close all of their accounts, or the bullying bank will close them if the customer doesn’t by the deadline.

Now the bank isn’t honest enough to say in the letter the real reason that they’re using Nazi-like tactics, forcing the closure because their customer happens to be a gun shop, they use flowery and vague, politically-correct sophistry in one of the worst “Dear John” letters of all time.

American Gun & Pawn, after receiving the letter, wrote about it on their Facebook wall on March 27. They said that the bank told them they aren’t just picking on them, but are closing ALL accounts of ALL legal gun shops across the country:

“This is the craziest thing I have ever seen. This is how these people are coming after your guns. If they can do this to a legal business, what can they do to you?”

 “When I called them, they said they are closing Gun stores accounts all over the country! We are a licensed and legal company! These big companies that infringe on our constitutional rights need to be held accountable!!”

If all banks follow their “Dear Leader” the way SunTrust Bank does, Obama won’t have to eliminate the Second Amendment, because there will be no place to buy guns and ammo.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Every gun owner in America should close their account with Sun Trust and send a nasty letter to the Bank Manager as to why they are leaving. If you don’t stand up and take action, then bend over for your masters, and let them give it to you where it really hurts, then smile and say thank you. There’s no place left in America for pussies.

 

FEDS GEARING UP FOR CIVIL UNREST WITH AMMO BUILDUP AND PARAMILITARY TRAINING

April 7th, 2015 by

http://www.newswithviews.com/NWV-News/news435.htm

4-7-2015 9-50-48 AM

By NWV Senior Political News Writer, Jim Kouri
© 2015 NewsWithViews.com

A NewsWithViews.com news story last June quoted Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal accusing President Barack Obama and other political leaders of waging war against religious liberty and education and saying that a “rebellion is brewing in the U.S. with people ready for a hostile takeover of the nation’s capital.”

Many believe that the federal government is actually provoking a rebellion. Those who’ve studied national politics and security believe that President Obama and his consortium of left-wing radicals, Islamists and One World Government operatives are hoping that American citizens will take to the streets in droves and armed and ready to be heard by an oppressive government. Such a scenario would offer the Washington elites the desired “excuse” to deploy the government agencies and the military which seems to be the opinion of Gov. Bobby Jindal and others.

Gov. Jindal is quoted by Fox News as saying he could “sense right now a rebellion brewing amongst these United States where people are ready for a hostile takeover of Washington, D.C., to preserve the American dream for our children and grandchildren.”

Gov. Jindal spoke in Washington, D.C, at the annual Faith and Freedom Coalition conference. During his presentation he accused Obama, his minions and sycophants of waging war against certain American values “The Pelican State governor is right on,” said John Snyder, who is also on the board of advisers for the National Association of Chiefs of Police and a former NRA magazine editor.

Although news stories and op-eds on the Internet for years predicted the mysterious and foreboding purchase by Homeland Security of billions — that right, not millions but billions — of rounds of ammunition, stories appearing in News with Views, the Drudge Report, Fox News and a few other news outlets appear to be drawing more and more attention to federal agencies militarizing their workers.

Most disheartening is the enormous number of weapons and ammunition being purchased and stockpiled by federal agencies that aren’t even law enforcement or military in nature. Federal agencies not usually associated with civil unrest are stockpiling weapons and ammunition. For example, the Social Security Administration, are trying to put a damper on the speculation — noting the ammunition is “standard issue” and simply used for mandatory federal training sessions.

When asked about their buildup of weapons and ammunition, the Social Security Administration stated: “The SSA is processing more applications than ever, which means more traffic in SSA offices. Employee and visitor safety is the highest priority for OIG, which, together with the Federal Protective Services and local law enforcement, has jurisdiction over SSA workplaces.”

The SSA also claimed, “Our special agents need to be armed and trained appropriately. They not only investigate allegations of Social Security fraud, but they also are called to respond to threats against Social Security offices, employees, and customers.”

The bullet purchases drew widespread attention as the web site Infowars.com published several stories on them that were linked off the widely read Drudge Report and other sites. Infowars.com catalogued a string of recent purchases — first by the Department of Homeland Security, then by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and then the Social Security Administration.

A new Homeland Security purchase order listed on FedBizOrgalso raises an eyebrow or two, given the heated and divided political and social climate at hand. Just look at what happened in Ferguson.

The purchase information reads: “U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) intends to solicit responses to Request for Information (RFI) 20082225-JTC for Less Lethal Specialty Munitions (LLSM) for use by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). CBP is interested in incorporating commercial and industry practices that support this type of procurement. To accomplish this, CBP intends to make industry a partner in all facets of the acquisition process, specifically by considering existing market capabilities, strengths and weaknesses for the acquisition of this commodity.”

The hardware build-up has been called a “domestic arms race,” and it’s starting to gain credibility with mainstream media journalists. The 1.6 billion rounds of ammo being purchased by Homeland Security represents “…a stockpile that would last DHS over a century. To claim that it’s to ‘get a low price’ for a ridiculously wasteful amount is an argument that could only fool a career civil servant.”

This huge arms race of weapons, ammo and armored vehicles by the federal government is taking place right in the middle of the claimed “sequester” which the government claims has sharply curtailed its ability to spend money. So while Obama and his minions threaten to release criminals onto the streets of America, behind the scenes the government is actually building up an ammo stockpile so huge that it could wage a 20-year war against the American people.

Government Buildup

The new Defense Authorization Act all but erases decades of U.S. government compliance with the letter and the spirit of the Posse Comitatus Act 1878, a law that prohibits the use of the U.S. military to perform law enforcement functions within the United States, according to police officials and others opposed to the militarizing of American law enforcement.

Provisions in the new authorization act allow military reservists — Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines — to be called to duty and deployed in the event of a natural disaster or other emergency within the homeland, as well as mobilization of reserve units to support counterterrorism and security missions overseas, according to the American Forces Press Service’s Donna Miles.

Originally, such deployments were the duty of National Guard, which are under the control of state governors who would call in guardsman as needed to support civil police forces, fire departments and other emergency personnel.

However, when Hurricane Katrina fiercely struck the Gulf Coast in 2005, especially the city of New Orleans, active-duty service members became “the federal default force,” according to Miles.

But the reason for that deployment was the inability of Louisiana’s governor and New Orleans’ mayor to command and control the police and emergency responders. Now the U.S. Congress and the Obama Administration have acquired the authority to use military resources in such emergencies, including deploying soldiers during an insurrection.

Ingram also noted that “the Bush Administration and congress toyed with the idea of practically militarizing FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Administration), which is basically a ‘bean-counting’ agency. But that idea went nowhere. However, with Obama in the Oval Office, the news media may be more willing to cover up abuses to patriotic Americans.””Is anyone surprised at this latest disregard for the constitution and tradition? The military forces in the U.S., Canada and Mexico have been training in urban warfare and response to terrorist threats such as weapons of mass destruction (WMD) scenarios,” said police lieutenant Walter Ingram of the Morningside, N.Y., police department.

Can Evil Be Defeated?

April 3rd, 2015 by

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2015/04/03/can-evil-defeated/

By Paul Craig Roberts

John W. Whitehead is a constitutional attorney. As head of the Rutherford Institute he is actively involved in defending our civil liberties. Being actively involved in legal cases, he experiences first hand the transformation of law from a shield of the American people into a weapon in the hands of the government.

American civil liberty was seriously eroded prior to 9/11 and the rise of the police/warfare state, a story I tell in How America Was Lost. Lawrence Stratton and I documented the loss of law as a shield of the American people in our book, The Tyranny of Good Intentions (2000, 2008). Whitehead in his book, A Government of Wolves (2013) and in his just released Battlefield America (2015) shows how quickly and thoroughly the police state has taken root.

We live in an electronic concentration camp. We are addicted to images on screens that disinform and propagandize us to accept and even welcome the police state activities that have destroyed our autonomy, privacy, and independence.

I write many columns on this subject. The advantage of a book is that it all comes together under one cover, and that is what Whitehead has done in Battlefield America.

“The outlook for civil liberties grows bleaker by the day, from the government’s embrace of indefinite detention for US citizens and armed surveillance drones flying overhead to warrantless surveillance of phone, email and Internet communications, and prosecutions of government whistle-blowers. The homeland is ruled by a police-industrial complex, an extension of the American military empire. Everything that our founding fathers warned against is now the new norm. The government has trained its sights on the American people. We have become the enemy. All the while, the American people remain largely oblivious.”

Whitehead gives it to us straight. We are continually abused in the name of protecting us. Ordinary Americans are subject to far worst abuse from government than they ever could be from criminals and terrorists, both of which are bogymen used to justify the government’s terrorism of the citizenry.

Four-year old children are handcuffed by police. Ninety-five year old citizens with walkers are body-slammed with their neck broken by police. War veterans without legs and wheelchair bound are shot and murdered by police. The police always justify their abuse and criminal acts by claiming they felt threatened. What kind of heavily armed police, usually together in gangs, is threatened by a four-year old, a 95-year old, a double amputee? The fact that police get away with this brutality shows their total lack of humanity and the total transformation of the purpose of police. Today a paranoid police protect not the public but the police state and themselves from an imaginary threatening public. We pay them to abuse and murder us.

On September 6, 7, and 8, 2014, the Washington Post reported that state and local police had become bandits, as in Mexico, who stop drivers in order to rob them. In “Stop and Seize,” the Washington Post reported that “aggressive police take hundreds of millions of dollars from motorists not charged with crimes.”

There are now training courses in which police are trained in the art of highway robbery. September 11, 2001, was used to create an industry that trains police in the aggressive techniques of highway interdiction. It is now routine for a traffic stop, whether justified or not, to result in the confiscation of your cash, other possessions, and your car itself. You can be robbed by police on the basis of their assumptions without being ticketed or charged with a crime.

Whitehead reports that in fiscal year 2012 the federal government alone seized $4.2 billion in assets despite the fact that in 80 percent of the cases no charge was issued.

Did you know that the school security industry is a $4.9 billion annual business that instills in youth acceptance of tyranny and punishments for infractions that are simply the normal behavior of youth?

Did you know that in 2006 a Halliburton subsidiary, Dick Cheney’s firm, was awarded a $385 million federal contract to build concentration camps in the US?

Did you know that Republicans have privatized the prison system and turned it into a $70 billion per year industry that demands ever more incarceration of citizens in order to drive profits. Consequently, 2.7 million American children now have at least one parent in prison, often on charges that would not constitute crimes in a civilized country.

US prison labor is now the cheapest form of labor available with prisoners paid between 93 cents and $4.73 per day. Prisoners make office furniture, work in call centers, fabricate body armor, take hotel reservations, work in slaughterhouses, manufacture textiles, shoes, and clothing, process agricultural products like milk and beef, package Starbucks coffee, shrink wrap software for Microsoft, sew lingerie for Victoria’s Secret, produce the military’s helmets, shirts, pants, tents, bags, canteens, and a variety of other equipment, make circuit boards for IBM, Texas Instruments and Dell. Sew McDonald’s uniforms, and perform labor services for Boeing, Motorola, Compaq, Revlon and Kmart.

Even the “mainstream” presstitute media has reported the US military drills in South Florida where military teams working with local police practiced rounding up American citizens for detention. The media has also reported the upcoming military occupations in Texas and Utah. There are protests but not on the level that a people conscious of the threat to their liberty would mount.

It seems clear that these are federal troops practicing control of the population which is being stripped of the constitutional right to hold government accountable. The pointless lockdown of Boston and its suburbs and the gratuitous house to house searches, a martial law exercise clearly prepared prior to the Boston Marathon Bombing, used fear created by the bombing, possibly a false flag operation, to teach the population compliance with, and acceptance of, martial law. The insouciant American population went along with it. If someone points out how they were manipulated, the fools scream “conspiracy theorist.”

The official explanation of the military exercises practicing population control in South Florida, Texas and Utah is that the military is practicing for overseas actions. Why then are local police involved? More likely we are witnessing drills described in the US Army’s 2010 publication, “Internment and Resettlement Operations.”

It is now routine for police to amuse themselves by carrying out strip searches and vaginal searches of women. Police go out of their way to provoke resistance so that they can beat, taser, and murder. If they can’t provoke it, they beat, taser, and murder anyway and claim their victim resisted arrest or threatened them. Have you noticed how the police find everyone threatening?

Whitehead shows that the educational system, entertainment, and television serve to indoctrinate and teach compliance. Television can do more than form public opinion. It is used to alter the worldview of the population. Our cars, household appliances, and smart homes are becoming devices designed to spy on us and report noncompliance. A society is being created in which there can be no autonomy and no freedom.</span>

The technology that permits the electronic concentration camp is produced by thoughtless people who have no concern for liberty. How, Whitehead asks, do we maintain our humanity in the face of technologies designed to dehumanize us?

America now has preemptive prosecution. Whitehead reports that 95 percent of those convicted of terrorism between 2001 and 2010 were prosecuted not for deeds, but for beliefs, ideology, or religious affiliations.

The two most engaging chapters in Battleground America are “The Matrix” and “The Posthuman Era,” together a mere 17 pages. The fusion of machines with humans to which trans-humanists are committed will destroy human sensibility, memory, and morality, and probably humans themselves.

Corporate America is in it for the money. Whitehead tells us: “With every smartphone we buy, every GPS device we install, and every Twitter, Facebook, and Google account we open, we’re helping Corporate America build a dossier for its government counterparts on who we know, what we think, how we spend our money, and how we spend our time.”

Whitehead quotes Bill Joy, a cofounder of Sun Microsystems: “I think it is no exaggeration to say we are on the cusp of the further perfection of evil.”

Jim Edwards says, “we humans are now data bits.”

In the penultimate chapter, Whitehead tells us what we can do, a question that I am forever asked by readers. Whitehead says that armed revolt is not an option. He believes that the tens of millions, perhaps 100 million, Americans who have pistols, rifles, and shotguns are not only unorganized, but outgunned. The 21st century has been used to militarize state and local police forces and to brutalize their attitude toward the American public. Even police in small towns now have helicopters, armored personnel carriers, tanks, machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades, drones, night vision, heat sensors, sensors that can see through the walls of houses and into cars.

If this is not enough, in comes the National Guard or federal troops, Army Rangers, Navy Seals. Or simply the release of germs. Washington can deal with its citizens the same way it dealt with the indigenous peoples we call Indians. Washington has retained in its hands live smallpox, a deadly killer, and there now have been several generations of Americans who have not had smallpox vaccination, because the disease was eliminated by vaccination. All the government has to do is to release smallpox on resistant populations, and, of course, the government has numerous other such means.

How did it come to this?

In my opinion, as I so often write, Americans are distracted by sex, entertainment, the difficulty of providing for themselves and for families. They are locked into the disinformation that sustains the American Matrix, blinded by their patriotism and the 4th of July speeches and by their indoctrination that Americans are “exceptional and indispensable.” And, of course, by their ignorance and arrogance. Americans simply have no clue.

The purpose of the evil that masquerades as a government in Washington is to prevent those few Americans who do have a clue from informing the rest of the population. Whistleblowers are arrested and falsely prosecuted and imprisoned. Journalists have been intimidated into silence.

Now, to Whitehead’s answer to what can we do. He says that we can mount “militant nonviolent resistance.” This worked for Christians in the decomposing Roman Empire.

It worked for Mahatma Gandhi in India against the British colonialists. It was working for Martin Luther King in America before he was assassinated, most likely by the FBI.

Whitehead says that the mass of the citizenry cannot be assassinated. If citizens simply stop cooperating by listening to the lies on TV, by purchasing the devices used to control them, by amusing themselves in front of propaganda screens, by learning again how to think, how to be human, how to be moral, the American police state can be defeated.

It worked in the past, and possibly it can work again. If not, Washington will remain the home of Sauron, a threat to every American citizen and to the entire world.

WHY TED CRUZ MUST BE DECLARED ELIGIBLE

Once again a constitutionally ineligible individual has declared his candidacy for president of these united States of America.

Once again another battle rages that should have been addressed in 2008 when the criminal impostor in the White House, Barack Obama (Known aliases: Barry Soetoro, Barry Dunham, Barry Obama, Barack Dunham), who also lied on his Illinois Bar Application when he said he has never used another name was allegedly elected. The usurper was/is using Barack Obama then but his friends at Occidental College knew him only as Barry Soetoro. Barack Obama was simply made up by the pathological liar at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

Instead of addressing Barry’s ineligibility back then, the criminal enterprise went all the way to submission of the electoral college vote to the Outlaw Congress on January 9, 2009. Every member of that body of politicians sat mute – Ron Paul – all of them – and allowed the electoral college vote to stand. When the usurper ran again in 2012 and allegedly won (which would not have been possible without all the vote fraud in both elections), once again all of them – both parties- allowed Barry Soetoro to steal the office of president.

On January 14, 2009, Chief Justice Roberts had cases on the docket where Barry Soetoro was the defendant or was the subject of the litigation. Roberts and the other eight justices had already held two ‘Distribution for Conferences’ on the Donofrio and Wrotnoski cases on Obama’s citizenship ineligibility; there were others also ignored by the ‘high’ court.

On the date above Roberts meets with the man at the heart of that case, Soetoro, in private. Two days later,Roberts sat down to discuss the case with the other justices after having a closed door meeting with the defendant! There was still the Lightfoot v Bowen case to be heard in conference, January 23, 2009. Again, Chief Justice Roberts was to sit in that private meeting to discuss whether the case should go to oral arguments. In my lifetime I have never seen such in your face shenanigans by a member of the U.S. ‘Supreme’ Court.

In April 2010, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas joked during a congressional house sub-committee hearing:

“Oh really?” asked Serrano. “So you haven’t answered the one about whether I can serve as president, but you answer this one?”

“We’re evading that one,” answered Thomas, referring to questions of presidential eligibility and prompting laughter in the chamber.”

Yeah, that’s real funny, Clarence. The U.S. Supreme Court is evading the eligibility issue. So, Clarence, why didn’t you just come out in 2008 with Leo’s case and the others and say: “Hey – we’re going to evade the eligibility issue so don’t waste your time and money.”?

The reason why Ted Cruz must be declared eligible is because if he isn’t eligible then neither is the criminal impostor in the White House.

Barry Soetoro’s father was a foreign national on U.S. soil. He had not applied for citizenship and in fact, there was question as to whether or not he should be allowed to stay in the U.S., as his personal behavior was in the slutty category. Soetoro’s mother was a natural born citizen. Soetoro was born with dual citizenship and no amount of political high jinx and lies can change that fact. He was and always will be constitutionally ineligible to be president of this country.

Ted Cruz’s mother is a natural born citizen. His father was a foreign national in the U.S. with Cuban citizenship; he finally became a U.S. citizen in 2005. Ted Cruz was born with dual citizenship: Cuban and American. No different than Soetoro.

But, Cruz has taken the position that ‘natural born’ means he can change his citizenship at age 44 (he will be 45 in December) and magically turn himself into a natural born citizen. Well, Ted, it doesn’t work that way. Natural born means when you’re born. This doesn’t seem to matter to Cruz or some of his ardent supporters. I tried to find the interview conducted at one of Cruz’s events a couple of years ago, but was unsuccessful. The reporter ask one of Cruz’s supporters about his eligibility. The woman replied, “We don’t care. We want him as president.” Does that make her any different than the ethically bankrupt who have supported the fraudulent stealing of the office of president by Soetoro? It does not. That Cruz supporter is just as willing to crap on the Constitution as Barry’s supporters.

Ted Cruz announced in 2013 he was giving up his Canadian citizenship; it was finalized in 2014. However, that does not make him a natural born citizen. And, like Barry/Obama, Cruz is using the same deceitful tactic by making fun of the citizenship issue: Ted Cruz Cracks to Press: ‘I Am Secretly a Citizen of Ethiopia’

Gov. Bobby Jindal is not a natural born citizen as proclaimed in this piece: “They arrived Feb 1, 1971, and a bit over four months later, on June 10, 1971, Piyush Jindal was born at Woman’s Hospital in Baton Rouge, a natural-born U.S. citizen, who like every other child born in America, could, constitutionally, grow up to be president.”

Jindal’s mother was five months pregnant when they arrived on U.S. soil and obtained green cards. Neither of his parents were either natural born or U.S. citizens at the time of his birth. I believe Jindal became a U.S. citizen via the fraudulent ‘anchor baby’ bastardization of the Fourteenth Amendment. His parents were not illegals since they obtained green cards, but they were not U.S. citizens at the time of his birth.

The same situation exists for Marco Rubio who is rumored to announce throwing his hat into the ring on April 13th. Rubio also doesn’t give a damn about the constitution. He has simply brushed off the legal fact that he is constitutionally ineligible. Rubio was born in May 1971 in Miami, Florida. His parents did not become U.S. citizens until November 1975 – four yearsafter his birth. Rubio’s parents were naturalized in 1975, so neither of his parents were U.S. citizens at the time of his birth. I believe Rubio, like Jindal, became a U.S. citizen via the fraudulent ‘anchor baby’ myth.

The stealing of the presidency beginning in 2008 was breathtaking in scope. I doubt the majority of adult aged Americans in this country have any idea of just what went on to get Barry and McCain declared constitutionally eligible. This piece is a must read because it factually lays out how an ineligible candidate was able to usurp the office of president. This piece is long, but read it over lunch, coffee in the morning or on the weekend: A Congressional Natural Born Citizen Parts I, II & III: Who Knew What & For How Long?

Now, all of the opinions that Cruz is a natural born citizen isbased on his mother being a U.S. citizen at the time of his birth:

There are dozens more which all chirp the same story line: one parent a U.S. citizen. However, that is not the definition of a natural born citizen. In some of the pieces above you’ll see reliance on the Fourteenth Amendment and the 1790 Naturalization Act which are covered in the next set of links below. We know the nearly 100 eligibility cases filed to stop Barry/Obama from stealing the White House were dismissed and never heard on the merits of the argument: who is a natural born citizen? The Outlaw Congress, every damn one of them unleashed the horror of Barack Obama on this country because of their cowardice or in the case of the ethically bankrupt Democratic/Commnist Party minions – they knew they could use the race card to get that waste of oxygen in the White House on the ballot.

For those unfamiliar with Leo Donofrio, he lives in New Jersey, he’s a lawyer and filed the first eligibility case against Barry and McCain in 2008. His case was not thrown out on the judicial hallucination called standing, but was killed by the U.S. Supreme Court and their duplicity. This piece deals with Juan McCain: John McCain: Citizen of Panama At Birth (Sept 2009)

Historical and legal analysis: Natural Born at Birth (Dec 2008) – This is a lengthy piece by Leo, but the research is impeccable and the only way we are going to stop ineligible candidates is with hard facts.

The articles below are not filled with speculation or the “my candidate” syndrome meaning I don’t care what the U.S. Constitution says. They all deal with historical facts. They are by no means the only ones, but I feel clearly cover in-depth why Cruz, Rubio and Jindal are not constitutionally eligible. Since this is a problem not likely to go away (Cruz is running despite knowing he will be in the same fight as Barry Soetoro over his eligibility and is counting on media like FOX to give him cover) it is imperative Americans and that means big shot anchors like Hannity, O’Reilly, Megyn Kelly and the rest of them that crushed Obama’s ineligibility learn the real definition of natural born citizen. Ted Cruz’s children can run for president because Cruz is a U.S. citizen. I do not believe Rubio or Jindal’s children can since both of them were born to parents holding only green cards and no flavor of citizenship. I could be wrong; I’m sure my email box will fill up.

I know everyone has time issues, but unless Cruz and Rubio are stopped and if one of them should get elected, we might as well just burn the U.S. Constitution. The reason the framers grand fathered in the natural born citizen clause was to ensure a president’s first loyalty would be to our constitutional republic. One can see just where Barry/Obama stands on that issue. No president in the history of this country has hated America more than the current occupant of the White House and done so much to destroy her. I have no doubt whatsoever that Cruz and Rubio do love America, but if they get away with becoming president it will mean anyone can hold that office just like the unvetted criminal in the White House. Do we want another Barry/Obama down the road?

What can be done?

We need to focus on the states right now getting them to stand firm against the Outlaw Congress and the usurper in the White House. When the time comes – if and it’s a big if – any of those three were to get the GOP nomination, I hope lawsuits are brought in as many states as possible to keep them off the ballot. As we know from the nearly 100 lawsuits to keep the criminal impostor in the WH off the ballot, suing the Secretary of State is a waste of time and money because all the judges involved were and are cowards. Almost all of the cases were filed after the habitual liar in the White House took office. The judges weren’t going to touch throwing the impostor president out of office.

No, the target would be the Republican National Committee for putting forth a candidate on state ballots who is constitutionally ineligible. It’s fraud – just like the Democratic/Communist Party USA did in 2008. Maybe even a RICO lawsuit. In the meantime, Cruz and his mouth pieces are trying to deflect away from the issue and I suspect Rubio will do the same. You might send each of them a short letter: You’re not constitutionally eligible; both parents must be U.S. citizens at the time of the child’s birth and we will file lawsuits to keep you off the ballot. Just maybe they will drop out of the race. Can’t raise enough money, don’t want to lose their powerful seats in the Senate, some excuse to evade the real issue.

You can take money to the bank the controlled media and that includes cable networks like FOX will continue to insist both are eligible – although there have been a few useful fools out there who likely will be silenced once they’re told to back off Cruz’s eligibility:

Cruz ‘as eligible as Obama is’ – House member deflects MSNBC host’s ‘birther’ assault: “MSNBC host Chris Matthews didn’t have the slightest issue with Barack Obama’s constitutional eligibility. But he is grilling Republican supporters of Sen. Ted Cruz’s presidential ambitions with reckless “birther” abandon.” Act surprised: the Republican house member being interviewed did the usual political tap dance with a stupid smirk on his face – but read his words. They know. They all know. “I’m telling you that President Obama is the president,” Farenthold said. “If he’s eligible to be president, Ted Cruz is.” “Was he legitimately elected president?” Matthews responded. “I wasn’t in Congress to make that determination,” Farenthold said. “That was determined before I got here.”

I must mention Donald Trump here because he’s stuck his foot in his mouth, again. He’s on the eligibility issue going after Cruz being born in Canada instead of the meat of the issue: both parents being U.S. citizens at the time of the child’s birth. I wish he’d shut his trap because all he’s doing is distracting people instead of educating them on what natural born really means.

And so the big lie, one of the biggest frauds ever perpetrated against the people of this country stays in place because (1) Republicans want the White House in 2016 and (2) as I said, to declare Cruz ineligible would cause a massive constitutional crisis: a usurper is sitting in the Oval Office and any laws, EO, treaties or other legal documents he signed are null and void – and they are – every last one of them.

RON EWART, AN HONORABLE, COMMON SENSE, CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES”

April 1st, 2015 by

http://www.narlo.org/president.html

4-1-2015 10-46-45 AM

It is said that anyone can run for president in America ….. and win. Over the ten years we have been writing articles on freedom and property rights, we have had several readers suggest we should run for president and others who said they would vote for us, if we did run, even if the idea is nothing more than a fantasy. We have resisted the idea for many reasons, the first being, only a fool would subject him or herself and their family to the kind of media scrutiny and feeding frenzy that a presidential candidate must endure, especially a conservative candidate.

However, with the plethora of candidates now allegedly running for the conservative ticket and many of those candidates just a replay of the same old tired political games, we have decided to explore the possibility of being a serious candidate for President, as improbable as that might seem.

There must be a thousand reasons why we shouldn’t run, but if we were to run we would be guided by the following platform. 

THE PLATFORM

Remember, a political platform is nothing more than a guide and a window into how a person or a party will govern. It is not sacrosanct and it is not set in stone. It may be reduced or expanded upon, depending on current realities. We’ll take the issues one by one that a president would face while in office, but not in any particular order, nor is it all conclusive. Common sense will be our guide in almost everything, but still recognizing that common sense is not necessarily the solution to some complex problems.

THE ECONOMY: 1) First rule, you cannot spend more than you take in or you go broke. Sadly, America is broke. We would use our bully pulpit to lobby for a balanced budget, except in time of war.

2) Second rule, excessive regulation inhibits the economy, job growth and wealth creation. We would work with Congress to unwind the millions of regulations that stifle our economy.

THE NATIONAL DEBT AND DEFICITS: While you are sitting there at your dining room table and working on your income and expenses, you instinctively know that too much debt will eventually force you into bankruptcy. The National debt at $18 Trillion and rising is an invitation to what every family knows will happen ….. bankruptcy. But national bankruptcy is far worse than personal bankruptcy. It can lead to a complete change in our political and judicial system. It can lead to a dictatorship as the government moves to bring stability to an unstable country by the use of force under martial law. Annual deficits of $500 Billion to over $1 Trillion dollars will only add to the national debt where there is virtually no way to pay the debt back to the borrowers, even if the government took every earned dollar away from every citizen. If the current very low interest rate rises, and it will, we will be paying more in interest on the national debt than the entire defense budget. Such an inevitable event will make national bankruptcy occur sooner, rather than later. We either get the national debt and the annual deficit under control, or we will face the dire, unintended consequences of national bankruptcy. Our administration would make getting the debt and deficit under control through a long-range balanced budget and the significant rolling back of entitlement spending.

TAXES: Obviously, a government can’t run without money. But when government is so inefficient and negligent that it wastes the money you pay them to the tune of 20% of the entire money they spend, it is high time to rein them in. In 50 years, since President Johnson’s Great Society, your government has spent $22 Trillion, averaging $440 Billion each year. Has poverty decreased? No! It has increased and made generation after generation dependent on government. Here is the reality on taxes:

“YOUR MONEY IS GOVERNMENT’S MAJOR POWER OVER YOU: The first power that government has over you is YOUR perception that YOUR money is their money. The second power that government has over you is by using the money they take from you by force of law, against you. The third power that government has over you is that you will religiously obey all of their laws.” (Will you?)

“Only when the people realize that their tax money is being used to environmentally enslave them; only when the people realize that their tax money is being used to “feed” a growing population of other people dipping their bills in the government “pig trough” and those “takers” voting for those very same politicians that take our tax money by force to keep the “trough” full; only when the people realize that their tax money is being spent to brainwash and indoctrinate their school and college-age children in the ways of socialism, multi-culturalism, radical environmentalism, collectivism and one-world-government; only when the people realize that their government is using their tax money to merge America into the one-world-order; only when the people realize that the only way to stop this attempted conquest of American freedom and sovereignty is to resist government, en masse, in every legal way possible. Only then will we reclaim our freedom.”

FOREIGN POLICY: 1) A bully not confronted, is a bully in power. A bully in power is a dictator. It is well known that a bully will only be defeated by a power greater than itself. No power is greater than American power.

2) All “bullies”, no matter where or who, will be confronted by this administration with the full diplomatic range and military power at America’s disposal, with a significant emphasis on military power. Our policy will be to bring the war to the enemy, no matter who it is, before the enemy has a chance to bring the war to America. Had we been president when Putin threatened invasion of Crimea, we would have sent a full aircraft carrier and destroyer battle group into the Black Sea to confront him.

3) We will reverse the reduction of funding for our military and work to increase it to the point America could wage war on two major fronts at one time. America’s military strength is what keeps little and large empires from ambitions of geographical. religious, or ideological expansion.

4) We must seriously consider withdrawing from the United Nations in that the UN works against American interests and sovereignty with a vengeance. If they could, they would repeal the U. S. Constitution.

IMMIGRATION: Illegal immigration is only a problem because the government allowed it to become a problem by not adequately closing the border and not fully enforcing current immigration law. Our administration would move forward with aggressively closing the border first and removing the magnets that attract illegal aliens. We would remove ALL government subsistence, education, or health benefits to illegal aliens, along with withdrawing all social security numbers and drivers licenses, prompting self-deportation. Visa applications from all foreign lands would trigger vigorous investigations and severe limits to visas would be put in place. We would work with border states to enlist their help in controlling the flow of immigrants, drugs and terrorists. No comprehensive immigration policy is necessary. We only need to enforce current law.

VETERANS: The entire Veterans Administration office should be over hauled and new policies put in place with the funds to match. These new policies would create an absolute priority for treating our veterans and their families with respect, honor, dignity and the admiration that they deserve. These people gave their lives, mind and limbs in the service of our country, defending our cherished freedoms. The current VA programs are an egregious affront to these individuals and an abysmal travesty. My administration would make this an absolute priority.

EDUCATION: Public and higher education in America have become infected by a cesspool of over-educated, academic idiots that have trampled common sense into the dust by experimenting with our children’s lives and engaging in indoctrination instead of education. Our administration would move to dismantle the U. S. Department of Education and transfer all public education responsibilities to the states and local government where they belong. We would encourage the drafting of an outline of education standards by the states, based on American exceptionalism, to use by local school boards as a guideline only.

SECOND AMENDMENT: We view the 2nd Amendment as one of the most important amendments included in the Bill of Rights and are a staunch defender of it. The 2nd Amendment was put there by the Founders to make sure a tyrannical government could not conquer the people with force. It wasn’t designed to promote hunting, it was for self defense and making sure that government couldn’t find it so easy to subdue the general population without facing a well armed militia. The people will not go easily into the night when armed.

ABORTION: We do not like abortion. It is without a doubt the killing of a human life, no mater at which stage of pregnancy. However, it is the law of the land and my administration would work with Congress to assure that no public funds would be used for abortion. I would work to stop all government subsidies to Planned Parenthood.

RELIGION: We are not religious, leaning more towards the provable and the knowable from science, rather than having to engage in a leap of faith to believe. However, we recognize that religion plays a vital and pivotal roll in the morality and integrity of any nation and is therefore a fundamental part of the fabric of that nation. We fully respect the religious beliefs of all faiths.

HOMOSEXUALITY: Not being religious we do not object to homosexuality on those grounds. Nevertheless, homosexuality, from our perspective, is an aberration of nature and although homosexuals should be afforded all the rights inuring to heterosexuals, we do not believe that those rights should extend to marriage.

ENTITLEMENTS: Run away entitlements are breaking this country. We would move to phase out most entitlements in 15 to 20 years in that the funding mechanism for every entitlement program is inherently flawed and totally unsustainable. Subsidies to the undeserving seriously weaken a country. Left on the current path, America will go bankrupt, sooner rather than later. It is high time that Americans quit relying on government and find ways in the private sector to subsist and care for them while sick and disabled, or in their later years. Obama Care is just one more entitlement leading America to national bankruptcy and must be repealed and replaced with a market-based solution that recognizes the doctor-patient relationship. The reduction of entitlements will free up funds for other vitally needed functions of government.

HIGHWAYS AND BRIDGES: Why is the highway trust fund running out of money next year? Why are our bridges and highways in such a sad state of repairs? Why isn’t there enough money for maintaining a strong military? Why is our economy in such dire straits? The major reason is that Progressives have been buying votes with money from the public treasury for the last 100 years and the money that would be available to keep our vital highway networks functioning and safe has gone to three types of exponentially expanding welfare. Without substantially reducing the funds to entitlements there will be less and less money available for roads and bridges, a vibrant economy and a strong military. The following graph illustrates the explosive growth of entitlement spending as it relates to America’s Gross Domestic Product. This isn’t bad fiscal policy. This is INSANE! Even an idiot can see that it is unsustainable.

4-1-2015 10-49-21 AM

THE BUREAUCRACY: The federal, state and local bureaucracies have become powers unto themselves, without any legislative oversight. Many federal bureaucracies have bloated budgets and tens of thousands of employees that “make” work. Their “make” work is an integral part of and adds to the too many regulations that plague people and businesses and make us all less free. I would present proposals to Congress to either rein in many of these bureaucracies, or dismantle them altogether.

ENVIRONMENT: We could write volumes on the environment and have. The environmental movement started out with good intentions to clean up air and water pollution in America. Then it got hijacked by radical national and international environmentalists, aided and abetted by the United Nations and the federal government. Environmental policy not only limits our rights, but adds significant costs to everything we buy. Current environmental policy is all about control of the masses, where in the masses are guilty of gross violations of the environment and must be regulated and restricted from many different activities. This is all part of the ever-shrinking bubble we mentioned earlier, in which government allows you to reside. My administration would take on the environmental lobby and put the brakes on a wide range of radical environmental policy promoted by national environmental groups and those affiliated with the United Nations. The United Nations Agenda 21 policy would be one of our first targets.

Any government program, including environmentally driven programs, that requires scientific evidence before implementation, must have at least a two-thirds majority of all private (not government) U. S. scientists in that specific discipline agreeing to the condition, prior to implementation of that program or the spending of government funds. New information should be analyzed frequently to see if changes to the program should be made.

Climate Change, alias man-caused global warming, is a planet-wide con and a fraud by world elites to implement a one-world-order by making the masses feel guilty about damaging the environment and conditioning them to draconian environmental regulations where property rights exist no longer and the bubble of individual freedom gets smaller and smaller. These regulations fall much harder on rural America but urban Americans feel the pinch in higher taxes and increased limits on their behavior.

RACE RELATIONS: Race relations and the accusations of racism will not go away until there is a major cultural shift in the black community. Police go where the crime is to control it. A large percentage of crime is occurring in the black inner city precincts, thus the incidence of police – black encounters will occur more frequently. This leads to allegations of systemic police racism. Until the fractured black families start putting more emphasis on two-parent homes and a good education for their children and quit playing the “victim” roll, these charges of police and white racism will continue. The government welfare system has made the situation even worse by demeaning the need for fathers in black families. Nevertheless, a president can use his bully pulpit to reverse the welfare trends and quit exacerbating the situation by parroting the racial stereotypes as has the current president and U. S. Attorney General have done. Cooler heads need to prevail if racial bias is ever to subside.

If we have missed anything, it is not by intent.

A Middle East Holocaust

March 31st, 2015 by

http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2015/03/30/middle-east-holocaust-paul-craig-roberts/

 

Paul Craig Roberts

The current situation in my experience is the most dangerous time of all for humanity.

Nuclear weapons are no longer restrained by the Cold War MAD doctrine. Washington has released them into pre-emptive first strike form.

The targets of these pre-emptive strikes–Russia and China–know it, because Washington proudly proclaims its immorality in public documents describing its war doctrine.

The result is to maximize the chance of nuclear war. If you were Russia and China, and you knew that Washington had a war doctrine that permits a surprise nuclear attack, would you sit there waiting while Washington cranks up its anti-Russian and anti-Chinese propaganda machine, demonizing both countries as a threat to “freedom and democracy”?

The fools in Washington are playing with nuclear fire. Noam Chomsky points out that in a less dangerous time than currently exists, we came very close to nuclear war.https://philosophynow.org/issues/107/Noam_Chomsky_on_Institutional_Stupidity

Harold Pinter, one of the last Western intellects, understood the danger in Western arrogance. He denounced the West’s crimes and called for the crimes to be subject to established law before it is too late for humanity.

“We have brought torture, cluster bombs, depleted uranium, innumerable acts of random murder, misery, degradation and death to the Iraqi people and call it ‘bringing freedom and democracy to the Middle East’. How many people do you have to kill before you qualify to be described as a mass murderer and a war criminal? One hundred thousand? More than enough, I would have thought. Therefore it is just that Bush and Blair be arraigned before the International Criminal Court of Justice.” Harold Pinter, 2005 Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech.

“An Iraqi Holocaust” by Gideon Polya http://www.countercurrents.org/polya230315.htm and “Genocide In Iraq” http://www.countercurrents.org/polya150315.htm provide abundant evidence for convicting Bush and Blair.

Dr. Gideon Polya is a professor of science in one of Australia’s leading universities. He has a moral conscience, something increasingly rare in the Western world.

His articles are based largely on the just published by Clarity Press two volume heavily documented Genocide in Iraq by Abdul-Haq Al-Ani and Tarik Al-Ani. Abdul-Haq Al-Ani is a British-educated lawyer with a Ph.D. in International Law and a Ph.D. in electronics engineering. Tarik Al-Ani, is an architect, translator, and researcher.

Currently I am reading the two-volume work and intended to review it. But Professor Polya’s articles suffice as an introduction to Genocide in Iraq. Washington has committed a terrible crime in our name. Washington not only murdered Iraq, Washington has murdered the Middle East. Washington and its despicable vassals–”the Coalition of the Willing”–are responsible for a Middle East Holocaust.

For people in the Anglo-American world who have a moral conscience, the facts are soul-wrenching. The populations of the countries whose governments comprised “the Coalition of the Willing” are contaminated with war crimes committed by their governments in the Iraq Genocide. A progressive modern state was obliterated, and 2.7 million Iraqi people were murdered.

The crime was covered up with propaganda that demonized Saddam Hussein and created fear of nonexistent weapons of mass destruction.

The Iraqi genocide was based on a lie, and both Bush and Blair knew it. The two satanic leaders simply decided to destroy a people who they first demonized and marginalized.

Cheney and the neocons continue to justify the genocide and the illegal torture regime that they created in order to produce fake “terrorists” as a justification for their war crimes. The Western media, especially the New York Times, is also complicit in the Iraqi Genocide as are the insouciant Western peoples themselves who stood by cheering while millions of people were destroyed on the basis of a blatant and transparent lie.

What does the West represent? Greed? Lies? War? Torture? War Crimes? Selfishness, Intolerance? Destruction of life on earth?

The “Christian” West is a master at propaganda and self-deception. Look at the evangelical churches. They support a criminal, inhumane regime while professing to be followers of Christ.

Look at American “conservatives.” They support the militarized police state. They support the routine police murders of dark-skinned American citizens. They support every war Washington dreams up and even more. Indeed, there are not enough wars for the satisfaction of Congressional Republicans who now want war with Russia and with Iran.

Look at the Republicans in Congress and in state governments. They hate the environment. They love polluters. They worship Israel and Israel’s destruction of the Palestinians and the ongoing theft of the Palestinians’ country, a 60-year old activity. Just look at the map of shrinking Palestine. More is stolen each day.

Washington has supported this theft of an entire country. Yet, Washington is able to masquerade as a great defender of human rights. Whose rights? Washington’s and Israel’s. No one else’s rights count.

How does the world survive the American-Israeli aggression? Probably it will not. The evil is now directed at Iran, Russia, and China. These countries cannot be bombed year after year after year with no consequences to the bombers.

Iran is limited in its destructive ability. But Iran could destroy Saudi Arabia and Israel. Russia and China can destroy the US and all of Washington’s vassal states. The intensity of Washington’s propaganda war is driving the world to destruction.

How can it be stopped when Putin himself says over and over that Washington continually ignores every thing that the Russian government says. Putin is the peacemaker. Every peace proposal he brings is ignored by Washington whose response is to beat the drums of war louder.

Unless European governments recognize the danger in Washington’s aggression and dissolve NATO, planet earth hasn’t long to live.

The American public needs to understand the consequences of Washington’s illegality and criminality. On the one hand it means that those subject to Washington’s aggression have to endure war crimes, but on the other hand it means a growing hatred for America. As Washington’s easy targets are used up, Washington engages countries that can reply to force with force.

Unless the neoconservatives are ejected from the Obama regime and banned from inclusion in any future American government, mushroom clouds will go up over Washington, New York, Boston, Atlanta, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Dallas, Houston, St. Louis, Cleveland, Chicago. The American mid-west, which hosts the ICBM silos, will become uninhabitable except by cockroaches.

Americans, and the populations of the American puppet states, desperately need to understand that Washington is incapable of speaking the truth about anything. Washington is an evil force. Washington is Sauron. Washington is Satan.

Look at Iraq. Look at Afghanistan. Look at Libya. Look at Syria. Look at Somalia. Look at Ukraine. Nothing but destruction comes from Washington. Will life on earth be Washington’s next victim?

THE END OF THE AMERICAN PRESIDENCY

March 30th, 2015 by

http://www.newswithviews.com/JBWilliams/williams300.htm

By J.B. Williams
March 29, 2015
NewsWithViews.com

Following the War of Independence separating America from Great Britain and establishing a new free sovereign nation, our Founders set a course to establish a Constitutional Representative Republican form of self-governance, of, by and for the people of the newly formed United States with the passage of the U.S. Constitution.

Ever since, political powers here and abroad have sought to undermine, dismantle and destroy the United States and eliminate it as the world’s most free, prosperous and powerful nation on earth.

Two hundred years later, trapped in a growing global shift towards a One World system of global governance based on communist principles of social justice, the United States would soon find itself in a silent battle for its sovereignty and security emanating from within…

Fast forward to 2004 – when a totally obscure new Illinois State Senator was paraded on to the national stage by none other than Sen. Ted Kennedy, (who had very close ties with Vladimir Putin, then head of the Russian KGB) – strangely upstaging the intended star of the show, Democrat presidential nominee John Kerry. Four years later, the man with no verifiable past would become the first truly anti-American occupant of the Oval Office under color of fraud.

His name is Barack Hussein Obama and Barry Soetoro and Barack Hussein Obama Soebarkah. He was born to a Kenyan Father and a young American mother, in Hawaii as the story goes, and grew up an Indonesian citizen for a time. He has more than twenty Social Security numbers attached to his name[s] – and six years later, all records sealed, not one American citizen can tell you for sure who or what this person really is…

But we have watched him destroy our country at light speed for six years – stirring up racial divides, seizing more and more dictatorial executive powers, taking over entire private economic sectors, importing illegal aliens and illegal Islamic “refugees” at a record pace, driving our nation to nearly $20 trillion in debt, setting records in Military KIA and WIA under suicidal ROE, losing Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria, Pakistan and numerous others, undermining every constitutional concept, installing Muslim Brotherhood members throughout federal offices and national security agencies, as well as in numerous Middle Eastern nations by directly interfering in their elections, and swapping old U.S. allies for old U.S. enemies and placing our oldest Middle Eastern ally on the chopping block, Israel.

If the goal is to destroy the United States, no one has ever done it better than Barack Hussein Obama.

Our Founders made it possible for us to prevent such events, by placing very narrow and specific requirements for the Oval Office in Article II of the Constitution… all the American people had to do to prevent this disaster was enforce the Constitution.

The Founders kept it very simple… to be eligible for the Oval Office, President or Vice President; one has to meet the following conditions –

1. One must be a natural born Citizen of the United States, a True Citizen
2. One must be at least 35 years of age
3. One must have held U.S. residency for at least 14 years prior

That’s all, three very simple requirements established to prevent someone like Barack Hussein Obama from ever entering the Oval Office, someone with unknown, foreign, dual or divided national loyalties. Barack Obama has demonstrated for six years now that he is loyal to global interests, not U.S. interests.

Barack Obama met condition number two and three, but he did not and cannot meet condition number one, the natural born Citizen requirement. That is the condition that should have prevented him from ever stepping foot in the people’s Oval Office six years ago. It didn’t stop him, because the people failed to enforce Article II of the U.S. Constitution, or even hold their representatives accountable for sitting silent as it happened.

Many Americans, millions, wanted the constitutional crisis addressed and resolved over the past six years, filing law suits, FOIA requests seeking information on who Barack Obama really is and where he really came from, calling for impeachment, both for the fraud that allowed him to seize the White House and the many treasonous acts he has committed while in that office.

But the political will of the masses was just not there. Million’s more would be focused only upon removing him from fraudulent power via the election booth, without realizing that he was now in control of everything, including elections and was rapidly turning the nation on its head.

Back in 2012, a new young up and coming hot shot Republican was emerging in the great once very conservative state of Texas. He was, like Obama, a Harvard trained lawyer, except he actually had more on his résumé than communist community organizing.

In a campaign interview during his freshman senate race, a GOP Texas State Committee member sat down with the young candidate to ask a few poignant vetting questions, and here are the questions and answers from that interview… (Redacted information is to protect the witness at this moment, but the witness is willing to offer sworn testimony)

Interviewer: “Hello Mr. Cruz, it’s a pleasure to meet you. My name is (redacted). I am a (redacted) County GOP Precinct Chair and you have my support and vote. I have one question for you if I may?”

Cruz: “Sure, go ahead.”

Interviewer: “What is your understanding of how one becomes a natural born Citizen?”

Cruz: “Two citizen parents and born on the soil.”

Interviewer: “Not exactly, but as I don’t have enough time to fully explain how one does become an natural born Citizen, based on your understanding, would you agree that Barack Obama is ineligible to be POTUS?”

Cruz: “I would agree.”

Interviewer: “So when we get you elected, will you expose him for the usurping fraud he is?”

Cruz: “No, my main focus will be on repealing Obamacare.”

Interviewer: “But Mr. Cruz, if he is exposed as the usurping fraud he is, everything he has done will become null and void. Everything!”

Interviewer: “At that point, Cruz reiterated his main concern, so it was obvious the conversation was over as far as Cruz was concerned. I thanked him for his time and wished him success in the runoff.”

That senate race was highly unusual. Redistricting had caused setbacks delaying the elections and election results. Cruz was running to replace Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison who had just retired and vacated her seat. At the originally scheduled time for the primary, Republican Cruz opponent Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst was well ahead in the polls. But by the time the election took place, Cruz had had enough time to slip ahead with more name recognition, in the end defeating his opponent and going on to defeat Democrat Paul Sadler in the general election, becoming only one of three Latino’s in the U.S. Senate.

That was 2012, and in July of 2013, Sen. Ted Cruz was beginning to make a name for himself, a somewhat outspoken freshman senator, sometimes frustrating GOP establishment RINOs like Sen. Mitch McConnell with his on camera grandstanding, much to the delight of his growing fan base in the Tea Party movement.

Members of the Tea Party, once focused on Constitutional Government, were beginning to see Cruz as more than just a U.S. Senator. In their search for a “real true constitutional conservative” to help regain control of an out of control runaway federal juggernaut under Obama, he seemed a breath of fresh air for millions of Republicans and Libertarians across the country.

That’s when calls for him to seek the Oval Office in 2016 started to take shape, and that’s when Sen. Ted Cruz became very concerned about a fact that he knew, but had never disclosed to the public, including during his Senate campaign a year earlier… Ted Cruz was born a Canadian citizen at birth, and remained a legal citizen of Canada, all the way up until May14, 2014.

In short, Sen. Ted Cruz was a legal citizen of Canada when he ran for and became a U.S. Senator, without ever having disclosed his Canadian citizenship to Texas voters, which under both Texas and U.S. Election law, is an act of fraud. Ted Cruz had committed election fraud by failing to disclose to Texas voters that he was a Canadian citizen in 2012.

No one can say for certain, but I think it is a very fair guess, that had Ted Cruz disclosed to Texas voters in 2012, that he had always been and remained at that time a legal citizen of Canada, his Republican opponent, Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst, would have won that race and become the next U.S. Senator from Texas.

Ted made a huge mistake… He messed with Texas!

Soon, it was the Tea Party wave of support that caused Sen. Ted Cruz to take an interest in running for president in 2016, forcing Cruz to now deal with a fact that was sure to become public in a presidential campaign… he was a Canadian citizen.

On August 18, 2013 the Dallas Morning News published a copy of the birth records released by Sen. Ted Cruz, his Canadian birth records. The story opened the debate over Cruz eligibility for the Oval Office and unlike Obama, who had issued a number of forged certifications of live birth to support his eligibility claim, Cruz had just proven that he was a Canadian citizen at birth by releasing his Canadian birth record.

Many immediately scrambled for damage control, alleging that maybe he was a “dual citizen” at birth via his American born mother. But there were no U.S. documents supporting that claim to be found…

Enter the Harvard lawyers… the same lawyers that had been protecting Barack Hussein Obama for six years… Cruz was advised by his legal friends to immediately renounce his Canadian citizenship, which he did, on May 14, 2014…

…and by June of 2014, friends and supporters at Fox News were beginning to clear his path to the White House by floating the idea that Ted was now a natural born Citizen of the United States, based upon renouncing his Canadian citizenship.

Of course, two critical problems remained… Renouncing his Canadian citizenship affected his Canadian citizenship, but not his citizenship records in the United States, which so far, appear not to exist even today.

As Ronald Reagan would say, here we go again, with a freshman Senator, a Harvard Lawyer, with Harvard law friends and no U.S. documentation to prove that Ted Cruz is a U.S. citizen of any type. A man with known foreign origins, and the son of a Father, Rafael Cruz Sr. who was at no time in his life a legal citizen of the United States until 35 years after Ted’s birth in Canada, when he renounced his Canadian citizenship and naturalized to the United States in 2005.

The problems were quite obvious… unlike Obama, who had taken great care to forge a false documented past before running for office, Ted had already proven to the world that he was not a natural born U.S. Citizen at birth, but rather a documented Canadian citizen at birth.

Not only had he committed election fraud by not disclosing to Texas voters that he was a Canadian citizen in 2012, now he was about to join Barack Hussein Obama in an even greater national effort to defraud all American voters by seeking the U.S. Oval Office less than a year after renouncing his Canadian citizenship.

Back on December 18, 2013, the North American Law Center was anticipating this sad moment in history when they directed a certified letter to Sen. Ted Cruz essentially begging him not to step out on this political limb, as he has many enemies ready to saw it off. Cruz never responded to that letter…

Enter the Harvard lawyers again… On March 11, 2015 – two Harvard law friends published a Harvard Law Review opinion declaring both Ted Cruz and Barack Hussein Obama “natural born Citizens” of the United States.

The key opinion in the entire legal wordsmithing document is this…

“While some constitutional issues are truly difficult, with framing-era sources either nonexistent or contradictory, here, the relevant materials clearly indicate that a “natural born Citizen” means a citizen from birth with no need to go through naturalization proceedings.”

What the Harvard experts are saying is this, gee, we just can’t find any documents to confirm the Founders intent of the term natural born Citizen, and so, we think it means this… a “citizen at birth” is a “natural born Citizen.”

Never mind that Harvard and Yale law buddies had already decided that “illegal aliens” are really just “undocumented citizens,” or that they long ago twisted naturalization laws to make “illegal aliens” born on U.S. soil “anchor babies” who are also considered to be “citizens at birth.”

The legal experts have now expanded all of our naturalization terms to mean “natural born Citizen,” using naturalization amendments, cases and statues to do it. In so doing, they are eliminating the true meaning and purpose of the Article II natural born Citizen requirement from our Constitution without having to endure the cumbersome process of actually amending the Constitutional legally.

And, what was once a long fought leftist battle to eliminate all Constitutional foundations for sovereign government by a sovereign nation and of its sovereign citizens, has now been joined by Republicans like Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal, none of whom are actually eligible for the Oval Office, and all of whom know it.

Only days later, on the heels of the Harvard opinion piece, Sen. Ted Cruz stood among 12,000 Liberty University students forced to attend the event, and announced he was running for the office of President.

If you ask the average American citizen what natural born Citizen is, they do not know. Even many, who think they know, do not know. Since Barack Obama, numerous definitions based on numerous political agendas have been floated, making what was once a very common simple term too ambiguous to enforce.

The people have allowed the lawyers to amend the Constitution by simply publishing a legal opinion.

And today, we are witnessing the death of the American Presidency… from this point forward, any person born anywhere on earth to any foreign Father or Mother can be president of the United States in direct violation of the U.S. Constitution.

The only documentation Obama ever proffered was a forged COLB (Certification of Live Birth, not birth certificate) from Hawaii, which Hawaii prints off and hands out like bingo cards at a Saturday night church social… and the only documentation Ted Cruz has proffered is proof that he was born a Canadian citizen at birth and remained such until May 14, 2014… on this basis, Harvard Law experts say both can be president…

Now, what does natural born Citizen really mean and why did our Founder’s choose that term in an overt effort to prevent people like Barack Obama, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Vladimir Putin and bin Laden’s son from ever gaining access to the Oval Office?

The answer is found in the Founders statements identifying the source of the term, Vattel’s international treatise on Natural Law, The Law of Nations, book 1 – Chapter XIX. Every American can easily find it, read it, understand it and know it. There is nothing at all ambiguous about it… unless you let your political agenda drive your facts.

The true definition of the natural born Citizen requirement for the Oval Office as described throughout the entirety of Chapter XIX can be summed up in this section from 212…

“As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”

Barack Obama’s Father was never a U.S. Citizen. Ted Cruz’s Father was never a U.S. citizen either, until he naturalized 35 years after Ted’s birth. Ted remained a legal citizen of Canada until he renounced his Canadian citizenship on May 14, 2014. Without any U.S. documents, Ted is now a man without a country, according to any authentic documentation. Is Ted Cruz just an “illegal alien” holding a U.S. Senate seat and running for President?

Nothing pertaining to naturalization pertains to natural born, nothing. Naturalization is the process by which an alien (non-citizen) becomes an American citizen.

Natural born Citizenship is a Natural Law term describing a condition that either exists or does not exist at the moment of birth. There is nothing anyone can do to become a natural born Citizen, once they were not born a natural born Citizen. Lies offered by Ivy League lawyers to the contrary are offered with the explicit intent to alter the Founder’s intent, and once again, they know it… It is a Common Law practice they all learned in law school. Common Law is the legal British practice of openly subverting Constitutional Law.

So, people with no U.S. documentation, “undocumented citizens” according to Ivy League lawyers, are “ natural born Citizens” and average citizens must rely upon Ivy League Law experts (or judges, political appointees) to help Americans figure out what the true meaning of “is” is… a term the average American is not intelligent enough to figure out for themselves. This is not a new tactic, Hitler did it with the help of Goebbels, Marx did it, Castro did it, Stalin and Lenin did it, even Hugo Chavez did it…

If allowed to succeed, again, the American people will have participated in the end of the American Presidency. Their silence will be their consent…

That is the worst part of this entire saga in the demise of the United States… The people put their politics ahead of their Constitution and as a result, they are about to let it all slip away, their freedom and liberty, all of it.

The mission to globalize the United States is only possible once it is no longer a requirement that only a True American, a natural born Citizen, can hold the office of Commander-in-Chief. The people appear willing to accept this now.

AUTHOR NOTE: Everything presented in this column is verifiable fact. Now we will see how many American patriots care about these facts.

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Somewhere in the past farther back than my ole mind can see, Mr. Williams published an article that pissed me off as I took it as him being a Republican hard core jerk, and I wrote him informing him I would never re-publish his articles ever again. Since that time he has published two articles that proved me wrong in my assessment of his loyalties. The above is his second articles I have republished since my premature outburst and I apologize to him and all who read this. He has now put in writing what I consider undeniable proof that the majority of the citizens of this country have their head up their ass. Welcome to the death of America all you who support OBUMA and CRUZ!

Congress Pushes Obuma backed National Biometric ID for Americans

March 29th, 2015 by

http://thejacksonpress.org/?p=31614

3-29-2015 11-50-50 AM

Reprinted with permission from The New American

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

Dear Mr. Congresscritter:

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

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

March 28th, 2015 by

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

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

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

The Daily Coin explains:

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[…]

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

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

And that’s when the madness really starts.

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

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

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

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

Do Russia NATO Military Drills Signal Something Ominous?

March 26th, 2015 by

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

As RT reported at the time,

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

RT reports the “drill” deployments as follows:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Are we in July, 1914?”

Why Hillary Clinton Must Not Become President

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

3-25-2015 12-55-24 PM

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

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

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

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

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

3-25-2015 12-57-26 PM

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Last Word on Overpopulation

March 23rd, 2015 by

James Corbett
The Corbett Report

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

3-23-2015 10-57-08 AM

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

OLDDOGS COMMENTS

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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