Burzynski, the Movie is the story of a medical doctor and Ph.D biochemist named Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski who won the largest, and possibly the most convoluted and intriguing legal battle against the Food and Drug Administration in American history.
In the 1970s, Dr. Burzynski made a remarkable discovery that threatened to change the face of cancer treatment forever. His non-toxic, gene-targeted cancer medicine could have helped save millions of lives over the last two decades had his discovery not been criminally suppressed by the US government, as his therapy, called "antineoplastons," have been shown to effectively help cure some of the most "incurable" forms of terminal cancer.
This documentary takes you through the treacherous 14-year journey Dr. Burzynski and his patients have had to endure in order to finally obtain FDA-approved clinical trials of antineoplastons.
His story is yet another testament that fact can be far stranger than fiction, as the film exposes the powerful, unscrupulous forces that work to maintain the status quo of the medical and pharmaceutical industry at any cost-including the lives of millions of people.
Dr. Burzynski's Story Is a Jaw-Dropper
Dr. Stanislaw Burzynski was born in the early 1940s in Poland, and was trained as both a biochemist and a physician. He's spent the last 35 years developing and successfully treating cancer patients suffering with some of the most lethal forms of cancer at his clinic in Houston, Texas.
I recently interviewed Dr. Burzynski about his cancer treatment—a gene-targeted approach using non-toxic peptides and amino acids, known as antineoplastons. Here, I will follow up with a review of his recently released documentary, Burzynski, The Movie.1
It's an absolute jaw-dropper…
For anyone who has ever been affected by cancer, either directly or indirectly, the facts presented in this film will hit you like a rude slap in the face.
You will learn that not only did the US Federal government spend 14 years actively suppressing a cancer treatment that had a FAR greater success rate than any other treatment available, but they also spent well over $60 million of US taxpayer dollars trying to put the inventor of the treatment in jail in order to steal his patents and either suppress or cash in on his discovery.
This film is an absolute MUST-SEE, as the summary I'm about to present below simply cannot do it justice. It's available for purchase at BurzynkiMovie.com, where you can view the first half-hour for free. The site also contains a large number of video clips,2 as well as a full transcript of the entire film,3 along with links to all the documentation presented.
What's so Special About Dr. Burzynski's Treatment?
The story begins back in the early 1970s when Dr. Burzynski discovered that people with cancer lacked a certain peptide, while those who were cancer-free had a plentiful supply of it.
This finding eventually led him to create a medical treatment referred to as antineoplastons. The drug contains a mixture of peptides and derivatives of amino acids. These were known to act as molecular switches, but as genome research blossomed and science progressed, Dr. Burzynski discovered they also work as genetic switches, and that is why antineoplastons work so well.
They're actually able to turn on cancer suppressing genes, while simultaneously turning oncogenes (cancer genes) off.
As explained in the film:4
"Our bodies contain two categories of genes that allow cancer to flourish: oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. When someone has cancer, they have a higher level of oncogenes switched on, with a higher-level tumor suppressor genes switched off.
The goal is to tell the body to both switch back on the tumor suppressor genes, and turn off as many oncogenes as possible."
While other gene targeting cancer drugs now exist, they're only capable of targeting a small number of specific cancer genes. Antineoplastons, on the other hand, target a wide spectrum of cancer genes—about 100 of them at once. In a very simplistic way, antineoplastons are to cancer what a broad-spectrum antibiotic is to infectious disease.
Success Rates of Chemo and Radiation versus Antineoplastons
The film features several remarkable case stories of people who were successfully cured of cancer, but it's when the clinical trial data of conventional therapies versus antineoplastons are stacked against each other that the benefits of antineoplastons become really obvious:
Radiation or Chemotherapy Only
5 of 54 patients (9 percent)
5 of 20 (25 percent)
were cancer-free at the end of treatment
were cancer-free at the end of treatment
Toxic side effects
No toxic side effects
Tackling Childhood Brain Tumors
Dr. Burzynski was so confident in his antineoplastons that he even accepted the most difficult and "hopeless" cases, such as childhood brain tumors. Conventional medicine has little or nothing to offer in these cases, and the side effects can be as horrific as the disease itself, if not more. Furthermore, the best outcome conventional treatment can offer is to slow down the growth of the tumor.
Using antineoplastons, however, Dr. Burzynski has been able to successfully cure many of these otherwise hopeless cases, such as Jessica Ressel.5
She was 11 years old when she was diagnosed with brainstem glioma—an incurable brain tumor. After learning that she would die no matter what toxic drugs and radiation treatments she underwent, the family decided to not put her through it. When they found Dr. Burzynski, they literally had nothing to lose…
Twelve months later—after having initially been told she had but a few months to live, and given no chance of survival at all—MRIs confirmed she was cancer-free. Her brain tumor was completely resolved. Today, Jessica is a healthy 24-year old woman, pregnant with her second child
When comparing FDA-supervised studies of treatments for lethal childhood brainstem gliomas, antineoplastons again comes out as a clear winner:
1 of 107 patients (0.9 percent)
11 of 40 patients (27.5 percent)
were cancer-free at the end of treatment
were cancer-free at the end of treatment
0 of 107 patients (0 percent)
11 of 40 patients (27.5 percent)
survived past five years
survived past five years
Even more interesting, while some of Dr. Burzynski's patients did eventually die after the five-year mark, most who did NOT undergo chemotherapy prior to getting antineoplastons have gone on to live normal, healthy lives—yet another indication that in many cases, the conventional treatments are more lethal than the disease itself
Side Effects of Chemotherapy Drugs
Here's just a sampling of the side effects of three conventional chemotherapy drugs:
· Doxorubicin (nickname: Red Death) – leukemia, heart failure, infertility, mouth sores
· Etoposide - leukemia, nerve damage, inability to fight infections
· Cisplatin - kidney damage, hearing damage, nerve damage, infertility
Another chemo drug, Mitotane, which is derived from DDT, is also used for pediatric patients even though no studies have ever been performed to ascertain its safety or effectiveness in children.
Dr. Burzynski's Troubles Begins…
The legal battle Dr. Burzynski found himself embroiled in over his invention is convoluted to say the least. There are many bizarre twists and turns, and I strongly urge you to watch the documentary to fully appreciate what happened.
Dr. Burzynski had tried to get the FDA to review and approve antineoplastons since 1977, to no avail. To make sure he would not get into trouble for using the experimental therapy in his practice, his legal team reviewed federal and Texas state laws, confirming that he was acting within the laws and could use antineoplastons in his own practice "to meet the immediate needs of patients," since he was a licensed physician, particularly if no other alternatives were available to the patient. He could not engage in interstate commerce, however, so he had to restrict the use of the drug to his home state of Texas.
But word spread, and patients started traveling to his office from out of state.
Suddenly, in 1984, he found out that agents from the Texas board of medical examiners were traveling to patients across the country trying to convince them to file charges against him.
What followed next truly challenges the rational mind.
Texas Board of Medical Examiners Try to Strip Away His Medical License
In 1988, despite not breaking any laws, and having produced more evidence than was required to show that his treatment was effective and that no harm was coming to his patients from it, the Texas medical board charged him with breaking a law that didn't exist, claiming it was grounds for revoking his medical license.
They didn't have a case, but kept the charges going by continuing to file slightly amended complaints, until finally, in 1993, the case went to trial. By then, 60 of Dr. Burzynski's patients had filed a petition for the medical board to stop harassing their doctor—a petition that the board successfully eliminated from the trial by filing a motion to strike it from the record.
Testifying on Dr. Burzynski's behalf, however, was a leading expert from none other than the National Cancer Institute (NCI), Dr. Nicholas Patronas, MD, a board certified radiologist since 1973, and the founder and chief of Neurology at the NCI. Even he recognized the absurdity of the board's case, and put his own career on the line to testify.
The judge ruled in Dr. Burzynski's favor, confirming that no laws had been broken.
You'd think that would be the end of it. But not so in this case. Instead of accepting defeat, the Texas medical board filed charges against Dr. Burzynski with the Texas Supreme Court.
The Method Behind the FDA's Madness
It eventually came to light that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had pressured the Texas medical board to revoke Dr. Burzynski's medical license—despite the fact that no laws were broken, and his treatment was proven safe and effective.
It's been stated many times that a crime can be solved simply by following the money, and this case is no exception. The FDA and the pharmaceutical industry had realized that if Dr. Burzynski's discovery—which he owned the patent for—received a fair review, chemotherapy and radiation would rapidly dwindle into obscurity, effectively crippling the industry. Not only that, but if antineoplastons were approved, billions of dollars of cancer research funds would get funneled over to one single scientist who had exclusive patent rights…
Dr. Richard Crout, Director of the FDA Bureau of Drugs, once wrote in a 1982 newsletter:
"I never have and never will approve a new drug to an individual, but only to a large pharmaceutical firm with unlimited finances."
It became clear that ever since 1977, when Dr. Burzynski first tried to get antineoplastons approved, the FDA had begun scheming to eliminate the threat he and his discovery posed to the entire cancer industry…
The Harassment Continues Unabated
The FDA, under the direction of Commissioner Dr. David Kessler, called no fewer than FOUR different grand jury investigations into Dr. Burzynski's practice, despite the fact that none of the grand juries ever found him to be at fault, and no indictment ever came from any of the investigations.
But the FDA did not let up.
Finally, in 1995, just days after the final grand jury investigation, which also had found no fault, Dr. Burzynski was inexplicably indicted on charges of fraud, and 75 counts of violating federal law. If found guilty, he now faced 290 years in federal prison, and $18.5 million in fines.
A year later, in a bizarre twist brought about by congressional and public pressure, the FDA agreed to accept all of Dr. Burzynski's patients into a series of 72 FDA-supervised phase two clinical trials.
A 1996 article in The Washington Post noted:6
"The prosecution marks the first time the FDA has tried to jail a scientist for using a drug on which he is conducting FDA authorized clinical trials."
Federal Government Spent $60 Million Trying to Bury Dr. Burzynski
This second trial cost American taxpayers a whopping $60 million just in legal fees alone—that's not counting the cost of continually harassing him (including several raids on his office) and his patients over the preceding 11 years. Dr. Burzynski spent $2.2 million on his own defense, $700,000 of which was raised by Dr. Julian Whitaker through requests for donations in his newsletter Health & Healing.
On March 4, 1997, the judge declared it a mistrial, due to a deadlocked jury. However, after stating the government had not presented sufficient evidence in its case, he ordered that Dr. Burzynski be acquitted of 42 of the 75 counts.7
But the FDA wasn't done yet. They took him to court AGAIN!
Third Time's the Charm…
At this point, many were becoming increasingly aware that something very bizarre and unusual was going on. Jurors from the first trial even joined patients in protests outside the courthouse. One clear-headed juror from the previous trial stated:
"Please don't waste my money abusing the system to make sure that you maintain your power!"
On May 28, 1997, after three hours of deliberation, the jury came back with their final verdict: Not Guilty.8 By now you're probably thinking that this victory surely must mark the end of the wrongful harassment of Dr. Burzynski.
But no. It gets worse.
Secret Dealings Hide True Intents
While this ongoing drama unfolded over the course of more than a decade, something even more sinister was taking place behind the scenes, unbeknownst to Dr. Burzynski and his legal counsel.
In 1989, Dr. Burzynski had retained Dr. Dvorit Samid as a research consultant, and she did a lot of work with the antineoplaston ingredients. At the time, Dr. Samid worked at the Uniformed Services Medical School in Baltimore. She later transferred to the National Cancer Institute.
By 1990—while the Texas medical board kept filing one amended complaint after the other against Dr. Burzynski, in an effort to revoke his license—he had decided that the easiest way to keep the government from putting him out of business or in prison, was to partner with a pharmaceutical company. As luck would have it, he'd treated the sister-in-law of the Chairman and CEO of Élan Pharmaceuticals, and Élan eagerly drafted a letter of intent stating they would aggressively pursue the filing of the necessary protocols with the FDA for approval and marketing of antineoplastons.
Dr. Samid began working closely with Élan on the project. But once the financing, licensing agreements and royalties had been negotiated and agreed upon, Élan suddenly changed its tune, stating they had significant doubt as to whether the active substances could be patented, which would render an agreement meaningless.
As it turns out, Élan had instead partnered with the National Cancer Institute (NCI), where Dr. Samid got the position of section chief. They then co-sponsored laboratory research and clinical trials on just one of the antineoplastons' ingredients—an ingredient that Dr. Burzynski had NOT been able to patent due to the fact that it was already known. However, he had also already determined it to be very limited in terms of effectiveness on its own, over a decade ago.
Élan and the NCI spent tens of millions of dollars testing this single ingredient… Not surprisingly, it failed. Dr. Burzynski had already established that the ingredients must be used in combination in order to be effective. After realizing they could not duplicate the effectiveness of Dr. Burzynski's antineoplastons, the NCI finally agreed to conduct his clinical trials under the direction of Dr. Michael Friedman.
Sabotaging Trials—Par the Course for the National Cancer Institute
How do you sabotage a clinical trial?
It's actually easier than you might think. You'll have to watch the film to get all the details, but in summary, the trials were closed prior to completion, and were written off with the statement "no conclusion can be made about the effectiveness or toxicity of antineoplastons." But it was clear, based on the study data, that seven of the nine patients enrolled received NO antineoplastons whatsoever! The others received dosages that were far lower than recommended.
Adding insult to injury, in 1999, about a year after Dr. Burzynski had been acquitted a third and final time, the NCI published these invalid trials in the medical literature, citing antineoplastons as a complete failure. So sure, Dr. Burzynski was a free man; cleared of all charges and free to practice medicine, but now the National Cancer Institute had effectively undermined the credibility and commercial viability of his medical discovery…
What the film reveals next truly boggles the mind.
“After the National Cancer Institute intentionally violated all protocols of their own antineoplaston trials, and after all state and federal agencies had failed in their 14-year campaign to remove Burzynski from society-after all of the dust settled-a profound truth began to emerge.”
Theft and Patent Infringement—All in a Day's Work
In October 1991—while the Texas medical board kept filing amended complaints against him in an effort to revoke his license, due to pressure from the FDA—the National Cancer Institute (NCI) had conducted a site visit to Dr. Burzynski's clinic, and verified that "anti-tumor activity was documented by the use of antineoplastons."9
As it turns out, a mere 17 days after this visit, the United States of America, as represented by "The Department of Health and Human Services," filed a patent for antineoplastons AS2-1… one of the two antineoplastons Dr. Burzynski had already patented.
The inventor listed?
"Dr. Dvorit Samid," Dr. Burzynski's former research consultant. The patent states:
"The invention described herein may be manufactured, used and licensed by or for the government, for governmental purposes, without the payment to us of any royalties thereon."
Over the next four years, while the witch-hunt to put Dr. Burzynski behind bars was in full swing, the US Government filed 10 more patents for antineoplastons.
By the summer of 1995, around the time that Burzynski was indicted for fraud and 75 counts of violating federal law, Dr. Michael Friedman—who sabotaged the NCI antineoplastons trials—had left the NCI and become Deputy Commissioner of Operations for the FDA, working directly under FDA Commissioner Dr. David Kessler—the man responsible for dragging Dr. Burzynski in front of no less than four different grand juries a few years earlier.
In November of 1995, a month into Dr. Burzynski's trial, where he faced 290 years in prison, the US Patent office approved the first US Government patent for antineoplastons. Between 1995 and 2000, the US Patent office approved all 11 copycat patents on antineoplastons AS2-1…
Who Pays for Their Crimes?
By now your head is probably spinning, so let's recap.
Dr. Burzynski developed a cancer treatment that surpassed all other treatments on the market, and the FDA, the pharmaceutical industry, and the National Cancer Institute all knew it. They also knew he was the sole owner of the patents for this therapy, and these two facts combined, threatened the entire paradigm of the cancer industry.
The cancer paradigm is based on very expensive machines and toxic drugs. There's an enormous amount of money to be made in this paradigm, and Dr. Burzynski single-handedly threatened to overturn it.
So they tried to copy his invention using a single non-patented ingredient. It failed. The next step was to steal the whole thing right from under him. There was just one problem. They knew they couldn't use the stolen patents as long as Dr. Burzynski walked free and had the ability to defend his rights to them… So they concocted 75 fraudulent charges to tuck him away in jail for the rest of his life.
Fortunately for us, they failed in that too.
Dr. Whitaker sums it up nicely when he says:
"How can the US Patent office be corrupted to the point they issue patents for a medical treatment that's already been patented and issue them to someone who had nothing to do with their discovery or use? And how can the Patent office then assign these fraudulent patents to some of the most powerful institutions in the American government? And, imagine, all of this was done while these same agencies were spending millions of taxpayer dollars trying to put Dr. Burzynski in jail, so he could not fight the criminal theft of his discovery!"
As I said in the beginning, the facts of this case challenge the mind of any sane and rational person, but make no mistake about it: These things did happen, and Dr. Burzynski has all the documentation to back it up.
The US Government did harass and intimidate, and they did try to falsely imprison a brilliant scientist, simply because he'd discovered an effective cancer therapy, while simultaneously engaging in patent infringement.
Now, while this was an enormous personal hardship for Dr. Burzynski, the US Government also, through their enormous greed, in a very direct way prevented millions of cancer patients to receive a non-toxic therapy that could have saved their life. Remember, Dr. Burzynski has been trying to get antineoplastons reviewed and approved since 1977, to no avail. It's absolutely heartbreaking to consider the cost of this criminal behavior in terms of human life, including young children.
The Deadly, But Highly Profitable, Cancer Paradigm
While the stolen patents are filled with useful information about the benefits and efficacy of antineoplastons, one statement in particular sums up the problem with the current cancer paradigm:
"Current approaches to combat cancer rely primarily on the use of chemicals and radiation, which are themselves carcinogenic and may promote recurrences and the development of metastatic disease."
Dr. Burzynski's therapy, as you may recall, is non-toxic, giving patients the option to at least not suffer more grievous harm from the treatment itself, in addition to a significantly greater chance of being cured.
I'm sure that whenever someone donates their hard-earned money or participates in a pink-ribbon walkathon, they believe they're doing a good thing. They believe they're helping fund vital cancer research that will hopefully, someday, find a cure for cancer. Little do they know that much of this money goes toward perpetuating the status quo of cancer treatment, namely highly toxic drugs and expensive machines—the same old paradigm centered around profit.
As of 2010, the National Cancer Institute's annual budget is $5.2 billion. Dr. Burzynski cannot get a single dime of it. All of his research into antineoplastons over the past 35 years has been self-funded.
Think about that for a moment. Not one dime has been funneled toward developing one of the most promising cancer therapies to emerge in the past three decades… Are you still convinced they have your best interest at heart, and are diligently working to "find a cure for cancer"?
If you're NOT convinced, I'd urge you to take a look at the story of alternative cancer physician Dr. Nicholas Gonzalez, which has similarities to that of Dr. Burzynski. Gonzalez's treatments are so successful that conventional physicians felt the need to shut him down.

Right now, the ground underneath Yellowstone National Park is rising at a record rate. In fact, it is rising at the rate of about three inches per year. The reason why this is such a concern is because underneath the park sits the Yellowstone supervolcano – the largest volcano in North America. Scientists tell us that it is inevitable that it will erupt again one day, and when it does the devastation will be almost unimaginable. A full-blown eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano would dump a 10 foot deep layer of volcanic ash up to 1,000 miles away, and it would render much of the United States uninhabitable. When most Americans think of Yellowstone, they tend to conjure up images of Yogi Bear and “Old Faithful”, but the truth is that sleeping underneath Yellowstone is a volcanic beast that could destroy our nation in a single day and now that beast is starting to wake up.
The Yellowstone supervolcano is so vast that it is hard to put it into words. According to the Daily Mail, the magma “hotspot” underneath Yellowstone is approximately 300 miles wide…
The Yellowstone Caldera is one of nature’s most awesome creations and sits atop North America’s largest volcanic field.
Its name means ‘cooking pot’ or ‘cauldron’ and it is formed when land collapses following a volcanic explosion.
In Yellowstone, some 400 miles beneath the Earth’s surface is a magma ‘hotspot’ which rises to 30 miles underground before spreading out over an area of 300 miles across.
Atop this, but still beneath the surface, sits the slumbering volcano.
When most Americans think of volcanic eruptions in the United States, they remember the catastrophic eruption of Mount St. Helens back in 1980. But that eruption would not even be worth comparing to a full-blown eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano.
And now the area around Yellowstone is becoming increasingly seismically active. In fact, Professor Bob Smith says that he has never seen anything like this in the 53 years that he has been watching Yellowstone…
Until recently, Bob Smith had never witnessed two simultaneous earthquake swarms in his 53 years of monitoring seismic activity in and around the Yellowstone Caldera.
Now, Smith, a University of Utah geophysics professor, has seen three swarms at once.
In September, 130 earthquakes hit Yellowstone over the course of a single week. This has got many Yellowstone observers extremely concerned…
Yellowstone’s recent earthquake swarms started on Sept. 10 and were shaking until about 11:30 a.m. Sept. 16.
“A total of 130 earthquakes of magnitude 0.6 to 3.6 have occurred in these three areas, however, most have occurred in the Lower Geyser Basin,” a University of Utah statement said. “Notably much of seismicity in Yellowstone occurs as swarms.”
So what is the worst case scenario?
Well, according to the Daily Mail, a full-blown eruption of Yellowstone could leave two-thirds of the United States completely uninhabitable…
It would explode with a force a thousand times more powerful than the Mount St Helens eruption in 1980.
Spewing lava far into the sky, a cloud of plant-killing ash would fan out and dump a layer 10ft deep up to 1,000 miles away.
Two-thirds of the U.S. could become uninhabitable as toxic air sweeps through it, grounding thousands of flights and forcing millions to leave their homes.
Can you think of another potential disaster that could accomplish the same thing?
That is why what is going on at Yellowstone right now is so important, and the American people deserve the truth. The following are some more facts about Yellowstone that I compiled that I included in a previous article…
#1 A full-scale eruption of Yellowstone could be up to 1,000 time more powerful than the eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980.
#2 A full-scale eruption of Yellowstone would spew volcanic ash 25 miles up into the air.
#3 The next eruption of Yellowstone seems to be getting closer with each passing year. Since 2004, some areas of Yellowstone National Park have risen by as much as 10 inches.
#4 There are approximately 3,000 earthquakes in the Yellowstone area every single year.
#5 In the event of a full-scale eruption of Yellowstone, virtually the entire northwest United States will be completely destroyed.
#6 A massive eruption of Yellowstone would mean that just about everything within a 100 mile radius of Yellowstone would be immediately killed.
#7 A full-scale eruption of Yellowstone could also potentially dump a layer of volcanic ash that is at least 10 feet deep up to 1,000 miles away.
#8 A full-scale eruption of Yellowstone would cover virtually the entire midwest United States with volcanic ash. Food production in America would be almost totally wiped out.
#9 The “volcanic winter” that a massive Yellowstone eruption would cause would radically cool the planet. Some scientists believe that global temperatures would decline by up to 20 degrees.
#10 America would never be the same again after a massive Yellowstone eruption. Some scientists believe that a full eruption by Yellowstone would render two-thirds of the United States completely uninhabitable.
#11 Scientists tell us that it is not a matter of “if” Yellowstone will erupt but rather “when” the next inevitable eruption will take place.
What makes all of this even more alarming is that a number of other very prominent volcanoes around the world are starting to roar back to life right now as well.
For example, an Inquisitr article from back in July described how “the most dangerous volcano in Mexico” is starting to become extremely active…
Popocatepetl Volcano is at it again. The active volcano near Mexico City erupted again this morning, spewing ash up into the sky.
The volcano is currently in the middle of an extremely active phase. According to theInternational Business Times, the volcano has registered 39 exhalations in the last 24 hours.
An eruption earlier this month caused several flights to be canceled in and out of Mexico City.
The BBC notes that officials raised the alert level yellow following Popocateptl’s eruption on Saturday morning. Yellow is the third-highest caution level on the city’s seven step scale.
And an NBC News article from August noted that one of the most dangerous volcanoes in Japan has erupted 500 times so far this year…
Ash wafted as high as 3 miles above the Sakurajima volcano in the southern city of Kagoshima on Sunday afternoon, forming its highest plume since the Japan Meteorological Agency started keeping records in 2006. Lava flowed just over half a mile from the fissure, and several huge volcanic rocks rolled down the mountainside.
Though the eruption was more massive than usual, residents of the city of about 600,000 are used to hearing from their 3,664-foot neighbor. Kagoshima officials said in a statement that this was Sakurajima’s 500th eruption this year alone.
So what does all of this mean?
Are we now entering a time when volcanic eruptions will become much more common all over the globe?
Could we rapidly be approaching the day when an absolutely devastating volcanic eruption will paralyze much of North America?

A truly grim Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today warns that President Putin has “pre-authorized” the newly established Mediterranean Fleet use of atomic weapons to be fired against United States Naval assests in the event that CIA-backed al-Qaeda terrorists in Syria launch a chemical attack against Israel.
Important to note about this MoD report is that Putin had warned the American public this past week about this pending attack on Israel through the publishing by the New York Times of his open letter to these peoples warning:
“No one doubts that poison gas was used in Syria. But there is every reason to believe it was used not by the Syrian Army, but by opposition forces, to provoke intervention by their powerful foreign patrons, who would be siding with the fundamentalists. Reports that militants are preparing another attack — this time against Israel — cannot be ignored.”
Equally important to note is that this is the second time Putin has appealed to the American people about their government’s support of brutal Islamic terrorists, the first time coming when in 1999 he warned, also through an open letter to the New York Times:
“I ask you to put aside for a moment the dramatic news reports from the Caucasus and imagine something more placid: ordinary New Yorkers or Washingtonians, asleep in their homes. Then, in a flash, hundreds perish in explosions at the Watergate, or at an apartment complex on Manhattan’s West Side. Thousands are injured, some horribly disfigured. Panic engulfs a neighborhood, then a nation.”
Less than two years later, on 11 September 2001, Putin’s warning came horrifyingly true when these “ordinary New Yorkers and Washingtonians” watched thousands of their fellow American citizens perish due to their regimes failure to listen to anyone other than their lying war mongers.
In fact, and just like in Syria today, the United States completely ignored Putin’s warning and supported the brutal Islamic Chechnya terrorists even granting one of their leaders, Ilyas Akhmadov, asylum and providing him a US-taxpayer supported income.
How the American people even allowed their regime to grant asylum to Akhmadov who was one of the masterminds of the worst terror attack in Russian history that left 334 people dead, 318 of them hostages, including 186 children, in the Beslan School Massacre is beyond understanding.
That is, however, until you understand this MoD report which lists in detail the lies being told to the American people by the Obama regime about Syria and who exactly these Obama regime war mongers are aiding and that are flying the black flag of Al Qaeda, slaughtering “heretics,” burning down churches, and eating the hearts and livers of Syrian government soldiers on YouTube.
Even worse, this MoD report continues, supporters of Obama’s war on Syria, US Secretary of State John Kerry and US Senator John McCain, went before the US Congress last week and testified that the Islamic terrorists in Syria were in the minority of rebels and citied the work of Dr. Elizabeth O’Bagy from the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) as the basis for their facts.
However, this report says, both Kerry and McCain failed to tell US lawmakers, and the American people who they represent, that Dr. O’Bagy was, in fact, not a doctor, had been fired from her position at ISW because of her lying about her academic credentials, and even worse, that she was being paid by a Syrian rebel advocacy group standing to make millions should American attack Syria.
And in a complete understanding as to why a recent Gallup Poll found that virtually no one in America trusts their mainstream media organs, and that the fastest growing “newspaper” in America is The Guardian based in Manchester, England, was no major US news outlet that featured “Dr.” O’Bagy on their programmes bothering to tell their viewers the truth about her.
So today, and as the Mediterranean Fleet has now been expanded to 10 warships, this MoD report states, the Moskva guided-missile cruiser, that carries 16 surface-to-surface N-12 cruise missiles, each of which carries a 350-kiloton atomic warhead, is “more than a match” for the US and Western naval forces aligned against them.
As to why Putin would authorize such a strike, thus risking all-out war with the West, this report continues, lies in Russian military doctrine rooted in the mass failures of the Great Patriotic War (World War II) when the then Soviet Union failed to initially confront the Nazis because of Germany’s overwhelming military and technological advantages, but whose failure to confront led to war anyway.
And like the Nazi Germans of last century, Putin has warned the Americans today believe they are “exceptional” too, and about which he stated:
“…I would rather disagree with a case [Obama] made on American exceptionalism, stating that the United States’ policy is “what makes America different. It’s what makes us exceptional.” It is extremely dangerous to encourage people to see themselves as exceptional, whatever the motivation. There are big countries and small countries, rich and poor, those with long democratic traditions and those still finding their way to democracy. Their policies differ, too. We are all different, but when we ask for the Lord’s blessings, we must not forget that God created us equal.”

By Susan Boskey
Declaration 2.0, July 4, 2013, is an idea whose time has come. It addresses many of today’s grievances held by the American people and, as such, echoes the original July 4, 1776 Declaration of Independence from the British monarchy.
Declaration 2.0 only changes original phrasing when necessary to make specific grievances relevant to today and uses the original format and capitalization style. It is a declaration to free Americans from the statutory-law U.S. Government that has “become destructive,” no longer “deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.”
The phrase “free inhabitant(s)” refers to how early Americans were identified in the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union, the country’s first constitution, ratified 1781 by 13 states.
The bold assertions made in Declaration 2.0 are based on deep research for the book, Beyond the National Myth: waking up in the land of the free. The hope is that someone or an organization will take it upon themselves to begin the process of gathering millions of signatures. There is no fixing what we already have. America and her people need a fresh start.
July 4, 2013 Declaration 2.0
The unanimous Declaration of the free inhabitants of the united States of America,
WHEN in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to expose the Political Bands which have erroneously connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of men and women requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to this Separation.
WE hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all People are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness—That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles and organizing its Powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient Causes; and accordingly all Experience hath shewn, that People are more disposed to suffer, while Evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the Forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a Design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their Right, it is their Duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future Security. Such has been the patient Sufferance of these Free Inhabitants; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The History of the present United States is a history of repeated Injuries and Usurpations, all having in direct Object the Establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these Free Inhabitants of the several states. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid World.
The United States has refused to admit that the President of the United States is NOT bound to the Constitution of 1787 because no president has ever taken the Constitution’s Article VI oath and thereby has made the U.S. Government entity an illegal, de facto government.
The United States has never acknowledged that it came into existence by a coup d’etat of the original American jurisdiction under the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union which has never been lawfully repealed in writing.
The United States has refused to acknowledge the limits of its lawful territorial jurisdiction and the still-intact laws under the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union.
The United States exists first and foremost as a commercial enterprise, and as such does not act in the best interest of the people.
The United States Government, not bound to the Constitution, has subverted its laws to forward self-serving political agendas and commercial interests.
The United States effectively dissolved unalienable rights of the people under the Creator by replacing them with legislated privileges called rights created by men and women who can also revoke them at any time. The government has been playing God.
The United States Government has endeavored to prevent the American population from understanding its alliance with a private central banking system that extracts the people’s wealth.
The United States has refused to protect the people from the merging of government and corporations aka corporatism. Especially disturbing is government domestic oversight by the Department of Homeland Security and the integration of military practices and functions with local law enforcement.
The United States has refused to protect individual property rights and has instead succumbed to a collectivist takeover of private land ownership rights and private land under a UN Agenda 21 “rights of nature” mandate.
The United States Government, due to having separate powers of the legislative and executive branches and, by giving the president both the power of head of government and head of state, has encouraged dictatorial powers thereof.
The United States has allowed presidents the unilateral law of executive orders when there is no explicit authority whatsoever for them.
The United States has erected a “multitude of new offices and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.” The IRS, Justice Department, many police, State and local revenue and other government agencies, engage in an escalating rampage of legalized theft and subsequent terror of not only those of their territorial jurisdiction but of all Americans.
The United States since the Korean War has gone to war without consent from the Congress.
The United States, dependent on deficit funding by the Federal Reserve, has rendered war to be an economic necessity beyond reasonable concerns for the well being of the people.
The United States has conspired with others to subject most Americans to a jurisdiction foreign to the original jurisdiction of the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union; unrecognized by our Laws and giving authorization and force to their acts of pretended legislation:
For creating a Prison Industrial Complex as an economic engine and, aggressively employing torture of supposed terrorists:
For protecting the banking industry and executives directly causing loss of retirement and other financial damage to everyday Americans:
For authorizing warrantless searches and arrests and the murder of Americans:
For imposing multiple taxes on us without our direct consent:
For depriving us in many cases, due process as with the IRS, DHS, FBI, NSA and under the Patriot Act and subsequent more draconian laws:
For authorizing indefinite detention and deportation of any and all Americans:
For abolishing the free system of English Common Law on lands not owned by the U.S. Government while unlawfully extending the “Federal Zone” to include all land in America thereby establishing the U.S. Government by enlarging its boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into non-federal lands:
For overriding our most valuable laws under the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governance:
For suspending our original form of legislature declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever:
The United States has abdicated lawful government and therefore acts above any restriction by law. It plunders our private and personal property (including labor), denies us due process, and as such, is engaged in domestic war against us, destroying the lives of our people.
The United States is at this time managing large numbers of military to complete the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of cruelty scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy as hidden justification for economic stability.
The United States Government has curtailed dissent and punished whistleblowers; constraining our fellow citizens taken captive making it difficult to impossible thereafter for them to receive due process.
The United States has cultivated divide and conquer strategies amongst us to distract the people from recourse against an illegitimate, de facto government of vast weaponry.
In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A government, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of humanity, enemies in war, in peace, friends.
WE, therefore, the People of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the World, the United States, for the Rectitude of our Intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these several states, solemnly Publish and Declare, that these Free Inhabitants are, and of Right, Free and Independent People of the several states; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the de facto United States Government, and that all political connection between them and the United States, is totally dissolved; and that as FREE PEOPLE under the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union, they have full Power to Build a New Form of Governance and to do all other acts and things which the Free Inhabitants may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
Who will be the first to sign their name to this Declaration, if it is posted on a Dedicated site?

It is absolutely heart breaking that one single citizen still supports this tyrannical government, and considering the possibility that the majority does is justification for becoming a hardcore misanthrope. The political philosophy that enabled the election of Obama to the presidency is an ineradicable disease resulting from the rejection of a Republican form of governance, and the acceptance of a false democracy. Only a government controlled education and media industry could have possibly suppressed the intellectual development of generations of American citizens to produced so many fools.

Whoever authored this article must have testicles the size of planets!
LORD GOD! IF ONLY IT WERE TRUE.
No doubt you will have read or heard about the U.S.A. being a corporation that usurped the Constitution many years ago. In fact you may have read about it on my two sites, but ! Considering the method of establishing a countries freedom or enslavement to another power by an act of war, all America needs is for our existing military to get off their ass and re-establish our organic Constitution as the real and only rule of law by conquest of the existing powers that be. Namely, the international banking cartel, and it’s various corporations. Then, hold a military tribunal and hang the existing tyrants. Perhaps they are too afraid of the bankers, but my guess is the People would rise up and protect them forever. They would become a new level of hero’s. The person who wrote the article above is no dummy, and what he/she outlined is entirely possible, if our military had the same amount of guts as the writer. Why not forward the article to a few generals and see. Every military man wants to be a hero.

Michal Massie is a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles.
The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn't like the Obama's? Specifically I was asked: "I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama's? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture."
The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I've made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don't like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.
I don't hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama's raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.
I don't like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress. I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagan's made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. His arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?
Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama's have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility.
I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to now being able to be proud of America. I view that statement and that mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world. Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do same.
I have a saying, that "the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide." No president in history has spent over a million dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.
And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother's death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father's military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address. He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today. He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel . His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.
I don't like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.
Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.
I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.
As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, "Nero In The White House" – "Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood… Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America's people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.
MASSIE FOR PRESIDENT!
DEPORT THE OBAMA'S!

WOW!!!! Mike Gaddy has really nailed it in his words below. This should be required reading in every newsroom (all shifts), in every classroom (all grades), in every church (all denominations) and in every government council meeting (city/town/county/state/). After the first reading it then needs to be repeated three more times so they can't ignore it. Then all the newspapers need to publish it on the front pages of every edition for at least one week.
The problem is we have so many Diane Feinsteins who sit and tell those who are trying to educate them that they are IGNORANT. Feinstein thinks she is EDUCATED but all she is is indoctrinated and there is a BIG difference in the two words. She avoided Cruz' question and played the VICTIM game.
“I’m not a sixth grader,” said responded. “Senator, I’ve been on this committee for 20 years. I was a mayor for nine years. I walked in, I saw people shot. I’ve looked at bodies that have been shot with these weapons. I’ve seen the bullets that implode. In Sandy Hook, youngsters were dismembered. Look, there are other weapons.”
Please, read over what Mike Gaddy has written here – share it with everyone you can. Send it to your critters in office and ask them for a written response. see how many you get. (don't hold your breath).

Subject: Rebel Redneck Quotes and Thought for today 3/19/13“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” ~Declaration of Independence
How much of a list does an intelligent person need to see that our government considers all of us who cherish our Constitution; our Bill of Rights and our Liberty as its mortal enemy? Let’s start with just five.
1. Drones to monitor our every activity and even take our lives if the president deems it appropriate.
2. FEMA Camps being prepared to confine those who dare oppose their masters.
3. The very real threat of gun confiscation.
4. Patriot Act and National Defense Authorization Act provisions that declare those who oppose corrupt and tyrannical government to be terrorists.
5. The Department of Homeland Security (how much more Nazi can it sound) has declared Constitutionalists, Veterans and most White folks in general as potential terrorists, while our tax dollars are being given to al-Qaeda operatives; yes, the same people our government claims was responsible for 9/11.
As can clearly be read from our Declaration of Independence, our government was created to secure our unalienable rights, not to be our masters; steal our money; take our land and water rights; close our Public Lands; manage our resources; write unconstitutional regulations and enforce them as law, or to provide money, weapons and aid and comfort to the enemy they claim attacked our country on 9/11.
No sane person would ever submit to becoming a slave to another; to having their personal property taken for the greater good; their children and grandchildren used as slaves and cannon fodder for the empire or to never having dominion over their own lives.
When even the ignorant realize they are about to become slaves, they will resist; violently if necessary. Those who seek to be our masters know this, that alone is their reason for seeking to control our means of resistance. There is no other logical reason for the gun control measures currently on the books and for those currently in the various stages of legislation. Only thieves and tyrants seek an unarmed populace.
Our Founders were faced with similar circumstances in the 18th Century but many were still unconvinced they should resist what others saw as inevitable. Jefferson put it this way:
“Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.”
Perhaps it is time we real Americans ask ourselves this very simple question: how much more evil can be visited up those who wish to be free; how much more will we deem sufferable before we decide to right ourselves? How much more of our hard earned money can we give to the monster that has become our government? How many more roads will we allow to be closed on our public lands? How much more water and land will we cede to the government while hard working farmers and ranchers are forced to give up their lifestyle and livelihood? How many more of our children will we allow to be sacrificed to the god of war in order to improve the financial bottom line of the members of the Military/Industrial/Congressional Complex?
What was the answer our Founders arrived at when looking down the double barrels of tyranny and despotism, one that was in actuality much less draconian than what we face from our own government today? Let us turn again to the words of Thomas Jefferson.
“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
Are we too blind to see the object of the abuses and usurpations being visited on “We the People” by today’s political tyrants, or just cowards? Will we shirk the duty to ourselves and our posterity to establish a better government; to create one that exists to protect our rights, not to take them?
How much more will we endure before we realize it is not the Sage Grouse, the Spotted Owl, the Snail Darter or the Southwestern Willow Flycatcher that is an endangered species, but instead it is the American Farmer/Rancher, our American way of life and Liberty itself that is on the brink of extinction?
"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a brave and scarce man, hated and scorned. When the cause succeeds, however, the timid join him…for then it costs nothing to be a patriot." Mark Twain
Galatians 4:16 Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?
Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless.
Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.

On February 22, "Right Views" reported that a growing number of firearm companies have suspended the sale of guns to states, counties, cities and municipalities that restrict their citizens' rights to own them.
In just two weeks, the number of companies participating in what has been named the "Firearms Equality Movement," has more than tripled from 34 companies to 118.
The Police Loophole lists every company and links to the statements that each has released regarding their new policies.
Wilson Combat, a custom pistol manufacturer located in Berryville, Arkansas, joined the movement on February 28 stating the following:
"Wilson Combat will no longer provide any products or services to any State Government imposing legislation that infringes on the second amendment rights of its law abiding citizens. This includes any Law Enforcement Department, Law Enforcement Officers, or any State Government Entity or Employee of such an entity. This also applies to any local municipality imposing such infringements."
Wilson lists the states included on its no sale policy as: California, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Washington D.C. and The City of Chicago, Illinois.
The statement also reads:
"Wilson Combat will in NO way support the government of these states or their anti-gun agenda that only limits the rights of law-abiding citizens. Wilson Combat will continue to supply any product and/or service they can legally sell in these states to all non-government affiliated citizens."
Pardon me Mr. Business men, but I have a question. What the hell are we going to do with weapons and no ammunition?
Have you tried to buy some ammo lately, only to find it is twice to three times more expensive in just one month? That is, IF you can find any ammo!
I have been surfing the net for three weeks now and every damn supplier is back ordered so far they won’t even guess when they will be caught up with back orders, and many will not even accept new orders. So, I think it is a good idea for the ammo manufacture’s to tell the government they will have to wait until their caught up with civilian orders, before they ship them any more ammo. This whole damn mess has been constructed by the government to prevent us from being capable of defending ourselves from their soon to be dispatched soldiers enforcing martial law, over some trumped up false flag event. Ammo manufacture’s listen up, if you don’t place the people above the government, like the companies making weapons have done, we will not forget you! I will make sure of that!
Everyone reading this notice should send an email to an ammo manufacturer and tell them, THE PEOPLE FIRST, MAKE THE GOVERNMENT WAIT! The panic buying that the government created has increased your profits, and we want the lowest prices possible and immediate delivery, or we will take our business out of the country. Tell homeland security to go to hell, and you will not sell them ammo to kill the people with! Only ammo to soldiers in combat zones, until the people are supplied!
THE PEOPLE FIRST!

Screw it, I’m gonna run for President, for a new Party hereinafter to be known as the Common Sense Party, or the No-More-Whining Party.
Here’s my platform:
A) I’m tired of taxpayers paying for dumbazz projects, most of which they never find out about until too late. The day I’m elected, all grants proving anything at all – from the sex life of the fruit fly to why some African tribes smell funny – are immediately defunded. You want to know – get a private investor who is as stupid as you are.
B) All countries to whom we send money (and that includes food, bombs, planes, drones, etc) are immediately unfunded. If you can’t figure out how to run your freaking country for a profit, without killing people or stopping one group from annihilating another, why should our taxpayers pour money into it? If “Humanitarians” object to this, they can send their money to other countries, or move there themselves to try to stop it. If we have to bribe you to be our “friend” then you are not worth our “friendship”. Figure your own political, social, and economic crap out.
C) All military personnel shall immediately come home, and all ambassadors are hereby fired. Our military should not be used as cops, peacekeepers, or warmongers. If you want to blow up your own people, fine. If you want to blow up another country not the USA -, that’s your business. But we will save billions just by bringing home our military – a couple of billion can then be put into making our military the strongest and most feared in the world again, FOR DEFENSE. Our ambassadors are doing the job our President should be doing, instead of his constant vacationing and playing golf. You’ll deal with ME – or you’ll deal with no one.
D) The CIA is immediately defunded and all agents are fired. If you want to sneak around and start fights to “destabilize“ governments so that the USA can come in and be a power manipulator, do it in your own neighborhood HOA without the backup of tanks and guns to enforce your Drama Queen games. The stupid shit other countries do, and the morons they elect or allow to control them, is their own damned business. Mess with US, however, and we’ll turn your country into a shining sea of superheated glass. ‘Nuff said?
E) If your foreign government gets off on hurting/killing/starving your own people, that’s on you – we will not fund you, trade with you, or deal with you in any way. Any American businesses that relocate to your country will have NO soldiers to protect them, no taxpayer-funded support, NOTHING. You want ‘em, YOU pay for ‘em.
F) There will be no lobbyists on Capitol Hill from now on. None. Not any. Congress shall only be permitted to write or pass bills that are one page, in 12-point font, simple and easy to read. This will eliminate all pork-barrel projects and “you have to pass it to find out what’s in it!” crap. If it takes longer than a single page to describe what needs to be done, you’re probably lying, cutting deals in backrooms, or porking it up to profit your buddies at taxpayer expense.
G) The USA is now “open for business”. All unions are hereby disbanded; we are now a “right to work” country. If you don’t like the way your employer treats you, and you aren’t capable of negotiating with him – find another job. No Welfare or unemployment for you while you look, though – your family is your responsibility, not the government’s. The EPA is now shut down, as is OSHA… if you own a company and someone gets hurt or killed, your company is liable, not the government or the thousands of innocent companies who like having employees and want to keep them safe. We are also a “buyer beware” country – if you’re not smart enough to figure out that green meat is bad for you or drugs will harm you, then Darwin should take care of you – not the government. YOU are now officially responsible for your choices – good ones that profit you, and bad ones that you should learn from, not be bailed out of.
H) “Operation Wetback” is now, immediately, again in force; Google it before you make racist remarks. If you came over here illegally from any country, and cannot prove that you are a citizen, you get no Welfare, no housing, no EBT cards, no tax breaks to start your own business, and no social security. You didn’t pay in, you don’t get. Employers who hire illegals will be shut down – our citizens need jobs. People who rent to non-citizens will lose those buildings to public auction. Can’t find someone to pick your lettuce or butcher your hogs? Tough shit – plant something else, or get a new trade. Buses will be located in every capital city, and will leave once a week for the southern border for the next six months. Get your local illegals on it. After six months, any illegals still here, getting arrested, driving without insurance, attempting to purchase anything, will be kept in Arpaio-style camps until transportation can be arranged – prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Mexico objects to our death penalty? Tough. Take your citizens back or they will submit fully to our laws. You want to be here? Apply for citizenship. Otherwise, you are outta here.
I) The government will no longer fund the Department of Education, in part or in full. You are jobless – if you can’t teach, you can always pick lettuce or butcher hogs. If your state can’t produce educated, hardworking students who want to have goals, careers, and futures, other states who CAN do these things will not subsidize you.
J) Education and child-rearing are the responsibilities of every PARENT. If you don’t want your children to be educated, fine – then if they become hellions, vandals, baby-breeders, dopers, or gang-bangers, the bill for the damage that they cause to others is the PARENTS’ – until they become of legal age. Then – THEY must work to pay for the harm that they cause. Prison? 3 hots and a cot? Counseling, free medical care, and a college degree, all paid for by taxpayers? Nope – your kids go to WORK and get a J.O.B, and pay for whatever other peoples’ rights to life, liberty, and property upon which they infringe. Daughter pregnant? That baby is her responsibility – or yours, as her parent. No Social Security, no welfare, no free housing, no free food. Don’t like that? DON’T BE A PARENT.
K) There will be no further discussion of what ‘religion’ this country is, and no laws made to support – or detract from – any religion. You can worship Gaia, Jesus, Buddha, or Allah – but the minute you think you have the right to demand that laws be made based on your religious beliefs, you will be summarily told off and then ignored. This is now the Common Sense government – where all religious beliefs are equal, in that they have no power to make, demand, enforce, or change laws that govern others not of their beliefs. Don’t like abortion? Good! Your taxes won’t fund it; neither will they fund Christian schools, mosques, Jewish temples, or any other religious structure, property, or organization, directly or indirectly. Want Sharia Law? Tough. The laws of the US that protect the rights of all citizens, including women and children, are good enough for us, if they are not good enough for you, get the hell out. YOU are responsible to build your churches as well as to support your ministers – and while no one gets any more ‘tax breaks’ – because Federal taxes will be almost non-existent (except to fund our military for defense only) – you’ll be able to afford to worship as grandiosely or as simply as you choose.
L) The military draft will instantly be re-instituted – with serious changes… All people from ages 18 to 30 (with clean criminal and mental health records) will receive 2 years of military training in defense of their own country – preferably in defense of their own state. They will be issued AR-15s – which they will be allowed to keep after their release. Every 5 years they will be required to test on their accuracy and ability until they are either physically or mentally unable to do so. As a citizen of this country, you will be expected to be prepared – at a moment’s notice – to be ready, willing, and able to defend it. NOT go overseas and fight for some specious money-making scheme so that old guys and politicians can make money and win votes on your dead bodies – but to defend your own country. Criminals are criminals, and guns are inanimate objects. Criminals will be prosecuted and made to pay for what they do to harm others – no law abiding citizen’s second amendment rights will be abrogated to keep from prosecuting and punishing those criminals who use inanimate objects to force their will upon others.
M) Social Security will immediately revert to what it was initially – a fund for retirement.; however, you now have the opportunity to “opt-out” at any time. All ‘borrowed’ SS monies will be repaid in full, and laws will be passed to ensure that at no time will the monies be changed, depleted, or borrowed. If you put into it, you (or your survivors) can take out of it. If you didn’t put into it – or think that being a lazy lay about, drunk or a stoner makes you eligible for it – you are sorely mistaken. Get off your ass and work like everyone else who HAS put into it. SS is NOT an entitlement – it is an insurance program.
N) the national DOT is disbanded. Every State now owns its own roads, including the Interstates that run through them. Fix them with your own money – or not. This way the citizens can determine what they want to pay for – and hold local governments fully responsible for determining what infrastructure needs to be supported with tax dollars.
O) The Department of Agriculture is hereby unfunded and collapsed. No more farm subsidies, no more Federal EBT cards, no more telling people what they can and cannot eat, no more storing wheat and corn til the prices rise for profit, no more ag businesses owned by corporations that exist solely to take Federal money. If your kids need free school lunches (especially after all of the tax cuts that will result from the previous cuts in funding), maybe you shouldn’t have had those kids. If you know/want to learn how to raise cows or corn, do it – and profit or fail. No more tax writeoffs for anyone for Ag – if there is a drought, or sudden cattle deaths, you should be able to – within your own state and real, working, local co-op – be able to insure yourselves against this. If ethanol from corn is such a great idea, why isn’t it making a profit and why hasn’t it shaken off the subsidies? Bullshit – it either works or it doesn’t.
P) The Federal Reserve is officially disbanded. If your bank can’t make a reasonable profit on loans, investments, and interest, then they shouldn’t be in business – nor should they be supported by taxpayers. And that goes for any other business – if your business can’t produce reasonably priced goods that people want and can afford without government intervention, then you shouldn’t be in business. No more Keynesian economic theory of – “if we need more money, we’ll just print it!” “Money” that is not based on anything of value has no value. Got it? Those of you who think that profit is wrong, and American ingenuity and productivity should be snuffed out by taxes, or that Americans should sacrifice themselves for the welfare of those who do nothing but feed off of others – both here and abroad – will have your chance to put all of your money towards those purposes, since you will have so much more in your pockets.
Q) There will be no more oil pipelines to the gulf of Mexico, California, or anywhere else. Instead, Congress will rescind the law limiting refineries, and oil companies can build the refineries where they dig out the oil. This will not only keep oil from being transported across states, threatening other peoples’ ways of life and property rights, but will ensure refining US oil here – and using it here, not shipping it to China or everywhere else.
R) Any foreign country that owns property in the US will immediately have it confiscated and sold at auction; they can get the profits from the sale but nothing else. No other country will own the resources of the United States, Congress shall make this a law. Any individual or corporation who buys these properties at auction will receive the same lack (or less) of supervisory laws, edicts, and constraints that the foreign owners had. We are a free people and we will not be controlled, influenced, or paid by foreigners who have no interest in this country other than to rip out its resources and take the profits back to their own country. Get up, get out. If you as a foreigner, on the other hand, have come to love this country, want to stay here and invest in it instead of your homeland, you are welcome to apply for citizenship (no fast-tracking, though).
S) Staff? We don’t need no stinkin’ staff. The Cabinet Advisory positions are good enough for me, thanks. All “Czars” are hereby fired. I will appoint people with the same political, social, and theoretical beliefs that I hold dear – and I don’t care if we are friends, we are not in office to ppppaaarrrtttyyy. My DH just wants to be left alone to build his fun things out of wood, metal, and fiberglas; he might show up to State dinners, but will leave if he gets bored. He doesn’t need a secretary; any letters he writes, he writes himself. He doesn’t need a social secretary, he isn’t all that social (hence his perennial nickname, “the Bear”). Since our kids are all adults, with lives of their own, they don’t need any supervision or trips or summer break vacations paid for by the taxpayers – they can afford their own, or they do without, just as we do. He walks the dog, who is a working cattle herd dog, so we’ll have to get something for him to herd, to stay in practice – maybe White House journalists? Unless I have the time to plow, plant, weed, harvest, and can or dehydrate my own garden, I won’t need a gardening assistant, either. My DH could probably show the White House chefs a thing or two about real food – grassfed beef, in particular, straight from our American farm. I don’t need a bunch of sap-sucking yes-men around me to assure me that I am doing the right thing – I need the honesty and integrity of people with experience and knowledge.
T) Treasury Department? IRS? Cut down to a skeleton crew, to follow only the Constitutional collection of taxes. Bernanke, you’re fired, since the Federal Reserve System is now closed.. Thomas Sowell will be the new Presidential Economic Advisor. Even at his age, his education and his knowledge, as well as his honesty and clarity of thought, will keep us fiscally on the right track.
With so much Federal tax relief – monies only being used to support the military, NO taxpayer dollars going overseas, NO Welfare except temporarily or for those completely unable to work – citizens will have more money – more money to start their own businesses or families, to feed and clothe themselves, and to invent and create a better and less restricted life for themselves. You will be able to afford medical care – and without the oversight of the Federal government, you will be able to make good and reasonable, affordable choices for you and your family, just as doctors and care services will be able to be competitive once again, without the constraints and costly demands of Federal involvement.
THAT was the intent of our forefathers who came here to start this nation. The Constitution will once again be the Law of the Land – the final say, the ultimate decision. Sound harsh? It is – life is harsh, and if you’re not up to the challenge, not willing to work and educate yourself to realize your dreams and potential, and not willing to participate in the country’s upward growth and challenges, maybe you should leave.
And after 4 years of decimating the Federal teat on which over 60% of this country’s population, as well as 156 other countries have suckled on for decades, if I am still not assassinated, I’ll run again. If only to ensure that the deceitful and slimy bastards who want to change it back are run out of Washington as well as out of State and local governments- preferably tarred and feathered, and on rails. After that, you’re on your own. See if you can keep from screwing it up for at least another 100 years or so.

From one of my friends to America
Kim Jung Un had NO military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star general.
This snot-nosed twerp had never accomplished anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership.
He hadn't even so much as led a Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team, or commanded a military platoon.
So he is made the "Beloved Leader" Of North Korea.
Oh WAIT. . .crap!
Sorry, just remembered that we did the same thing.
We took an arrogant bastard community organizer, who had never worn a uniform, and made him Commander-in-Chief of the MOST POWERFUL MILITARY ON EARTH.
A guy, who had never had a real job, worked on a budget, or led anything more than an ACORN demonstration, and we made him "Beloved Leader" of the United States TWICE !!!
I'm sorry I brought this up.
HAVE A NICE DAY!

Recently by Robert Anderson: What Will the Doctors Do?
by Robert Anderson
Silence rarely conveys knowledge, especially when it’s the result of intimidation. There are moments when it’s prudent to remain silent, but hardly when you’re in the midst of a gun ownership debate. The political classes, and its anti-gun proponents, are today engaged in a massive legal assault on citizen gun ownership through regulation and/or abolition. Their arguments are well known and much has been written on the subject, both in favor and in opposition to the idea.
Unfortunately, silence due to "political correctness" is hampering a frank and honest discussion of the fundamental issue of citizen gun ownership. While gun ownership for personal protection or sporting uses are being heatedly defended, these are only secondary considerations to the more critical concern over citizen ownership of guns. The preeminent and fundamental case for gun ownership by citizens is to secure and preserve the means for individuals to safeguard their lives and property from a potentially threatening oppressive government.
Of course this tends to sound paranoid, for after all, most citizens today view our government as a responsive political institution, primarily engaged in helping its citizens to secure a better quality of life. Such common sentiments about one’s government are not new. Even the Germans shared such a view of their own government at the beginning of the 20th century. So, to express concerns today that our politicians and bureaucrats could someday turn against their own citizens and inflict violent harm upon them is harshly condemned by many as being ludicrous.
After all, many politicians and anti-gun proponents today are convinced no democratic government could ever become so oppressive and dictatorial, certainly not our own. But what we believe and what may prove true are not always the same. We know the face of the future is forever veiled by the hand of God and none of us can ever know with certainty where we’re headed. But acquiring an understanding of the past is another matter, and we’d all be wise to heed it. Too often the past is prologue to the future so it’s always prudent to remind ourselves of Edmund Burke’s famous line, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." And it’s equally important to remind ourselves that the essence of government is a sovereign power with a monopoly over initiating force upon others, a coercive power which has become deadly and violent many times throughout the ages.
For anti-gun proponents to ignore the ravages of 20th century history and believe today’s citizens should be denied the means to protect themselves from the risk of future oppressive tyranny is both dangerous and foolhardy. Have we forgotten how Germany, Russia, and China disarmed their citizens in the 20th century, and shortly thereafter their governments slaughtered tens of millions of their own citizens? Have we forgotten the "killing fields" of Cambodia where disarmed citizens were slaughtered close to annihilation in the 1970’s by their own government? Those slaughtered were the helpless victims of their well-intentioned citizen ancestors who acquiesced to government mandated gun control.
Of course, today’s anti-gun proponents and their political allies will argue, those places were all different and such horrors could never happen in our country, so why do our citizens need to own guns? Indeed, citizens may not need guns to secure their lives and property from our government today, but can anyone argue with certainty that future citizens will never need guns for that purpose? After all, today’s anti-gun proponents are essentially betting on the lives of future citizens, and while making such a costless bet among themselves, do so by placing a deadly bet on the lives of future citizens, should their bet today prove horribly wrong tomorrow!
Every decision imposes costs in our imperfect world, and the issue of citizens owning guns is no exception. We all know gun ownership will surely bring some harm as long as evil and ignorance remain a part of the human condition. Without question, guns will continue to be used in many gruesome and horrible murders by deranged and evil people. But peaceful citizens must have the means to protect themselves from not only the isolated acts of criminals but also from an oppressive government tomorrow with the capacity for evil mass murder. These threats far outweigh any perceived "benefit" from permitting an intrusive government to disarm its citizens today. Such a threatened act, at the very least, would transform future citizens into helpless victims, should an evil authoritarian government someday try to subdue them.
Citizen gun ownership is ultimately a form of "insurance" for a future, unknowable risk. Switzerland, as well as our own country, has acknowledged and practiced this form of "insurance" for a long time. We all know gun ownership by citizens can impose heavy costs, but they are costs dwarfed by the greater horror of millions of future citizens being denied any means to defend themselves against an evil government slaughtering them with impunity.
We would like to believe such a future scenario unimaginable, but we know it’s not, as our violent 20th century history has tragically reminded us. Governments murdering millions of their own citizens have inflicted monstrous horrors in our lifetimes, and there is nothing in the history of the human experience to give absolute assurance it will not happen again. The drafters of our Constitution understood this, and hopefully today’s citizens will remember it, even though mentioning such a horror makes people uncomfortable, a reaction usually encountered when discussing unpleasant truths.
Finally, there are few instances in a citizen’s relationship with government where non-intervention in their personal affairs is more vital than with gun ownership. The Second Amendment was established as a safeguard for citizens, should the government they created ever become evil and oppressive, to have an effective means to defend themselves against that government. With that thought in mind, what would be more devastating than for a future evil government to possess individual records on every citizen who owns a gun, what kind of guns they own, and where he lives? Draw your own conclusions: Is it either prudent or wise to surrender individual gun ownership information to any government today which could become your evil oppressor tomorrow? Can’t happen? Tell it to the Germans and Russians a century ago!

IF YOU’RE NOT
OF OUR FEDERAL
Obama only wants military leaders
who will fire on U.S. citizens
Examiner – by Dave Gibson
On Monday, renowned author and humanitarian Dr. Jim Garrow made a shocking claim about what we can expect to see in Obama’s second term.
Garrow made the following Facebook post:
I have just been informed by a former senior military leader that Obama is using a new “litmus test” in determining who will stay and who must go in his military leaders. Get ready to explode folks. “The new litmus test of leadership in the military is if they will fire on US citizens or not.” Those who will not are being removed.
So, who is the source?
Garrow replied: “The man who told me this is one of America’s foremost military heroes.”
Understand, this is not coming from Alex Jones or Jesse Ventura, or from anyone else the left often dismisses with great ease.
Garrow is a well-respected activist and has spent much of his life rescuing infant girls from China, babies who would be killed under that country’s one-child policy. He was also nominated for Nobel Peace Prize for his work.
His bio on Amazon.com reads:
Dr. James Garrow is the author of The Pink Pagoda: One Man’s Quest to End Gendercide in China. He has spent over $25 million over the past sixteen years rescuing an estimated 40,000 baby Chinese girls from near-certain death under China’s one-child-per-couple policy by facilitating international adoptions. He is the founder and executive director of the Bethune Institute’s Pink Pagoda schools, private English-immersion schools for Chinese children. Today he runs 168 schools with nearly 6,300 employees.
This comes on the heels of Sunday’s report in the Washington Free Beacon (WFB) that the head of Central Command, Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis is being dismissed by Obama and will leave his post in March.
The WFB article states:
“Word on the national security street is that General James Mattis is being given the bum’s rush out of his job as commander of Central Command, and is being told to vacate his office several months earlier than planned.”
Did Gen. Mattis refuse to “fire on U.S. citizens?”
Thanks to TransAm for this article.

So an Assault rifle was never used, imagine that!
But Feinstein and Obama press on.
So, it comes out today that Adam Lanza never used an AR or AK in the horrible slaughter of those kids. Just as I heard the first couple days after the shooting, the AR never left the car. Doesn’t change the outcome, just emphasizes that the Lame Stream Media will lie to push their agenda, even over the dead bodies of innocent children. All we have heard for three weeks is how he killed everyone with an “Assault rifle”.
They knew it all the time. Here is a news clip played on MSNBC. I guess someone was going to spill the beans about the truth so they figured they might as well come clean.
NEVER trust a government, especially ours!
Whatever happened to Manhood in Washington DC?
ANYBODY who or ANY BODY which is (or has been) moving closer to INSTEAD OF farther away from taking guns of any kind from We-the-Militia is making himself/itself automatically! my very own, oath-betraying Enemy #1. That’s because violation of one part of the Constitution is tantamount to violating the entire contract. Is that clear, Ladies and Gentlemen of the TN General Assembly? Please reply.

01 17 13 CAFR1 NATIONAL POST White House petition for disclosure of the collective government investment wealth
Many wanted the short link to the CAFR1 White House petition for disclosure of the collective government investment wealth held which also had the note to use a percentage of the return there from (a percentage of the 5-trillion generated each year) to offset taxation.
They needed the short link to use on twitter and other social media sites;
So here it is http://wh.gov/Qh8Z
Walter Burien – CAFR1.com
P. O. Box 2112
Saint Johns, AZ 85936
Tel. (928) 458-5854
To update your information regarding getting email posts from Walter Burien – CAFR1, please use the following link:
WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Government promotes debt and never the scope of their global investments. "Collective" Local and Federal totals held are?
Government, Local and Federal promotes debt and "never" mentions its "collective" investments held globally.
Investments held in the US, China, Soviet Block, South America, etc.
"Collective" totals from both Local and Federal government held domestic and globally are estimated as of 2007 to be a conservative 110-trillion dollars having generated a return of over 5-trillion dollars.
The return from these investments is rarely dedicated to offset taxation.
Should law be passed to mandate a certain percentage say 10% to 30% of the return from these investments be dedicated by every local government and federal agency to offset taxation?
The City of Mesa, AZ has been doing this for 30-years creating on the city level the lowest taxation rate in the state of Arizona..
SIGNATURES NEEDED BY JANUARY 28, 2013 TO REACH GOAL OF 25,000
TOTAL SIGNATURES ON THIS PETITION 438
Thank for signing this petition!
You can help ensure that this petition will be reviewed by the White House and receive an official response by asking your friends and family to sign the petition as well.
Send an email to your friends and family or use social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to help promote this petition.
Email this link to your friends and family: http://wh.gov/Qh8Z
Or use social media sites like Facebook and Twitter to help promote this petition.
You first timers will have to create an account, but don’t let it bother you, they surely already know who is dissatisfied with the government. If you are uninformed as to the importance of this petition, go to http://cafr1.com/ and study it!
What St. Augustine had to say about what we now call government:
"A gang is a group of men under the command of a leader, bound by a compact of association, in which the plunder is divided according to an agreed convention. If this villainy wins so many recruits from the ranks of the demoralized that it acquires territory, establishes a base, captures cities and subdues peoples, it then openly arrogates to itself the title of kingdom, which is conferred on it in the eyes of the world, not by the renunciation of aggression, but by the attainment of impunity"
Your Choices in the Political arena:
Indeed, the plunder has become so common, and the plunderers so smug and self-confident, that their predations are taken for granted, and the thieves themselves treated with extraordinary deference! It is something akin to the Stockholm syndrome. You encounter the same mugger at the same spot every day, and eventually establish a sort of bizarre relationship with him—-even, eventually, thanking him for not taking more. When you are given the opportunity to replace him with another mugger, you vote for the incumbent—sticking with the devil you know, unless his opponent offers to share more of his loot with you.
Paul Hein 10-19-2010 http://strike-the-root.com/just-say-no
What brought these thoughts to mind involves the bailouts and other forms of stimuli now being inflicted upon us. I have not counted the times when some pundit on television has bemoaned these extravagances, saying something like, “And our children and their children will have to pay for all this,” or “pity the poor taxpayer, who must pay for all this,” but they must be legion. Wait a minute! What do they mean, “HAVE to pay for all this,” or “MUST pay for all this?” If productive Americans accept the idea that they must accept financial responsibility for government largess to its cronies, then what can be the objection to the bailouts?
How refreshing it would be to hear those same pundits who bemoan the absurdity of government bailouts bemoan with equal logic and passion the idea that we, the people who produce this country’s wealth, can be saddled with the debts of strangers! I assume they fail to notice the injustice of it because it has become so common that, as St. Augustine pointed out, the hapless victims have become subdued and demoralized, and the thieves, now well-established and empowered, have assumed the roles, if not the titles, of nobility.
When you think about it (and wouldn’t it be wonderful if people did!), you can only be struck numb with amazement. Can you go into a store, order thousands of dollars worth of goods, and then tell the clerk to send the bill to assorted strangers? Obviously, you cannot do such a thing, and, in fact, it would probably never even occur to you to attempt such a preposterous act. Yet your elected “representatives” do it regularly, with impunity, spending not thousands, but billions, based upon the power which, we are told, we have delegated to them, although in fact they somehow gave themselves the power they use.
But not to worry! Everything is entirely legal and above-board. Overlook, please, the fact that the plunderers themselves write the “laws” which enable them to plunder! While you’re at it, overlook as well the fact that when existing laws might hamper their activities, those laws are disregarded. Indignant victims could sue, of course, but the issue would be settled in a court owned and operated by your opponent, with one of his gang–with a vested interest in the outcome–on the bench. All entirely legal, of course!
So: what to do? One could learn a lesson from the experience of Prohibition. Massive civil disobedience overwhelmed the rulers, although in that instance, the massive disobedience involved the public doing something it wanted to do–drink alcohol. True, today’s public no doubt wants to hold onto its earnings, but merely being allowed to retain a portion of those earnings, by a government much more powerful than that of Prohibition, satisfies many. It’s that Stockholm syndrome, again.
Perhaps state legislators might be persuaded to question how the states (and the citizens thereof, of course) can be made parties to the debts of the federal government that is, after all, to be the servant of the people and the states. State government is closer to the people, and, perhaps, less intimidating than the federal government. If the states still consider themselves sovereign, how can they stand by while the residents of those states are impoverished by the federal government? Somebody call the sheriff!
Simplest of all, surely, would be the simple “I’ve had enough” uttered by the poor, beleaguered citizens. It wouldn’t take a majority of fed-up victims to put the fear of the voter (they don’t fear the Lord) into the houses of Congress.
A few days ago I saw a TV news program showing thousands of people lined up to get applications for federal housing assistance. What they wanted, of course, was to use the government to obtain your money for their benefit. They didn’t seem at all ashamed of their demands, and the reporters at the scene found nothing remarkable about it except the large numbers at the turnout, which reflected, they said, the sad state of the economy. Unfortunately, they didn’t equate the sad state of the economy with precisely the sort of activity being documented.
If the tax-feeders can congregate in the thousands to demand more benefits from the productive, surely the productive can do the same thing to demand that the plunder cease!

Jesus said“…buy one”. Luke 22:36
By David A. McElroy
JESUS IS THE REASON FOR THE SEASON in which carols of We Three Kings are sung. The Christmas of 2012 has been made a very sad one for many in Newtown, Connecticut, following the Sandy Hook school massacre. But we should not forget the celebration of Christ, which is the very essence of the word “CHRISTMAS”. Ironic, is it not, that courts prohibit Jesus from being portrayed in public places during the official national holiday bearing his name in celebration? Why is this? Where is the love?
Let us recall Jesus is both celebrated and reviled as Lord and Savior, our High Priest and Messiah, Teacher of the Way, the Truth, and the Life. The Son of God came into this world to take us out, and sacrificed his life to lead us on the path to Heaven. Some of us choose to follow Christ in reverence, others loathe Jesus. Some will even remove Christ’s name in “Christmas” signage and replace it with an “X” to read “Xmas”! Why? Because Jesus is THE libertarian, and the forces of evil seek to enslave us all. That is why Christ is reviled and his “Holy Day” of Christmas is sullied with an avalanche of sensual delights appealing to our dreams, our gluttony, pride, and lusts. It is why real “Saint Nicholaus” has been perverted from a Christian patron saint of children to become a magical patron saint of merchants pushing earthly delights.
A gilded cage was enticing us all long before we were old enough to know what was going on. Call it indoctrination, or brainwashing, or marketing. Just sit on Santa’s lap, kid, and tell him everything you want. Just keep wanting the shiny new baubles. Just keep dreaming, chasing the illusions dressed up in hopes of a white Christmas around a tree we trimmed in silver and gold. Let those sugar plums dance in your head.
We are told at Christ’s birth the angels proclaimed “Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, goodwill toward men,” in Luke 2:14. Christ later said “Think not that I am come to send peace on Earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword,” in Matthew 11:34.
A sword divides, it severs. Kings wield swords. Christ came to rule as King of Kings and Lord of Lords, to judge the world and divide God’s sheep from Satan’s goats. This is the end for which Jesus was born into this world as an innocent lamb, to die a noble and ultimate sacrifice to rise up victorious as a redeeming lion of divinely royal lineage. We are graciously given the right of free will, or choice, to follow Christ – or else deceits that bring us despair, destruction, and death. We will reap the consequences of our decisions in personal responsibility to our Creator for our actions. Choose wisely!
Swords, or weapons, are often found in scripture. Is disarming everyone righteous and proper according to Christ? The sword is properly wielded by the righteous, as noted in Romans 13:4. But not all of us are righteous, and laws prohibiting all of us from bearing arms do not stop deranged lunatics, common criminals, or monstrous tyrants like Caesar. So… I ask you now, WHAT WOULD JESUS DO?
In Luke 22:36, Christ said, “But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.” Remember, Roman law prohibited civilian ownership of swords, and Pontius Pilate governed Palestine under Roman military occupation. It was the charge of treason, or rebellion against Caesar, that was brought against Jesus by the Jewish High Priest Caiaphas. This is why Pilate posted “THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS” on Jesus’ cross, signifying the supposed crime for which he was crucified most unjustly.
Jesus also spoke to the sneaky unjust use of the sword in Matthew 26: 51-55. He warned that “all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword”, that using violent force as a way of life only brings violence upon the perpetrator. A libertarian never uses force nor fraud to bend others to his will. Christ offers his teaching, blessings, and salvation freely without coercion. We are not to be forced to come to Christ at the point of a weapon, as he was marched to crucifixion.
But our lives are the most primary of God’s blessings, and not to be yielded lightly. While evil offense is prohibited, righteous defense is a duty. Those who would disarm us insist that stricter laws prohibiting guns are the answer, but the law neither protected nor served those slain in Connecticut’s “Gun Free Zone” school. The US Supreme Court ruled in Castle Rock v. Gonzales in 2005 that police are under no obligation to protect citizens. Police are mistakenly called “first responders”, when it is actually the victim that is first to respond. A gun in hand is far better than a cop on the phone!
When Christ came into this world, “three wise men”, or “kings of the east”, came bearing gifts to the newborn king. They knew a great royalty had been birthed, and followed that star to bear gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. Frankincense and myrrh were oils for sweet odors, perfumes, used often in offering prayers and preparing bodies for burial. Gold was money as it has always been. Today, the three kings of Christmas in these End Times are actually Mammon, Lucifer, and Molech. They too bring sweet smelling things that are known to stimulate prayer, accompany death, and finance sweet dreams.
This big gifting season is about money extraction, increased sales, pleasing Mammon. We exalt children and deplore their murder while supporting a world economic system ruled by banksters that preys upon human lives, maintaining a bloody bottom line sending military forces to slaughter men, women, and yes, CHILDREN, capturing wealth in the foreign wars. It is a fact that children comprise war’s vast majority of casualties. The use of depleted uranium munitions guarantees birth defects and radiation sicknesses for many generations to come in places like Iraq. We cringe in horror when American children are killed, but give little thought when troops sent with our tax dollars gun down the children of another people. We even endorse the choice of aborting our own children for virtually any reason, much as the ancients threw their children into the fire at Molech’s feet hoping for economic blessings and convenience. Lucifer laughs at his symphony of illusions and chaos killing us amid sweet dreams. WAKE UP! What would Jesus do?
Right now, many influential voices are openly urging Barack Obama to stand strong as a DICTATOR, arbitrarily eliminate the Second Amendment, CONFISCATE ALL GUNS, and arrest all dissidents, discarding our First Amendment rights as well. People like New York City Mayor Bloomberg and former Seattle Police Chief Norm Stamper are among a loud fascist cacophony screaming for mandatory disarmament and stifling free speech. It is out in the open, people. It is not some dubious conspiracy talk. It is not a secretive thing at all. FASCIST DICTATORSHIP is Uncle Sam’s Christmas gift of 2012. Obama, a self-proclaimed Marxist endorsed by the Communist Party USA, will not hesitate to pick up the big hammer and confiscate our weapons and arrest all who disagree with his policies. It is the course of action taken in every country overtaken by a Marxist ruler. And after the people are disarmed, policies of mass slavery and massacre of dissidents and “useless eaters” are pursued with a vengeance in the pursuit of godless government efficiency. It is the destruction of God’s people, which He has called to be Christian soldiers armed for the battle with the Serpent’s seed sown among us like tares among the wheat. Certainly, we should read Ephesians 6 for counsel about Christian conduct and the “Armor of God”. But we should also recall God authorizes us to defend ourselves against fleshly enemies with earthly weapons of steel, even “to execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people: To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute upon them the judgment written: this honor have all His saints.” Read this in Psalm 149:7-9.
Recall how presidential candidate Ron Paul was booed and hissed at a GOP rally in South Carolina for stating we should apply the Golden Rule to US foreign policy! Was that in Christian judgment and the honor of the saints? What would Jesus do?
Would Jesus have done as Piers Morgan did on CNN in confronting Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America… flying into a histrionic fury of emotional name calling and illogical nonsequitors to exploit the deaths of school children and slander Pratt and our God-given right to self-defense? Would Jesus, like Reuters, issue an op-ed piece to urge Obama in his second term to act without Congress to arbitrarily impose draconian gun restrictions?
We are in dangerous times. The US Bureau of Justice Statistics, and the FBI, have cited a declining murder rate in America in recent years, and a 65% reduction in violent crime. But fascist faces play upon emotions drummed upon the corpses of children to disarm the future victims of America. They would destroy our freedom and dignity, life and liberty.
It is Christmas time. Let’s honor Christ our king. What would Jesus do?

WASHINGTON (Reuters) –
The United States reversed policy on Wednesday and said it would back launching talks on a treaty to regulate arms sales as long as the talks operated by consensus, a stance critics said gave every nation a veto.
The decision, announced in a statement released by the U.S. State Department, overturns the position of former President George W. Bush's administration, which had opposed such a treaty on the grounds that national controls were better.
On Wednesday Obama Took the First Major Step in a Plan to Ban All Firearms in the United States. The Obama administration intends to force gun control and a complete ban on all weapons for US citizens through the signing of international treaties with foreign nations.
By signing international treaties on gun control, the Obama administration can use the US State Department to bypass the normal legislative process in Congress. Once the US Government signs these international treaties, all US citizens will be subject to those gun laws created by foreign governments.
These are laws that have been developed and promoted by organizations such as the United Nations and individuals such as George Soros and Michael Bloomberg. The laws are designed and intended to lead to the complete ban and confiscation of all firearms. It will never happen!
The Obama administration is attempting to use tactics and methods of gun control that will inflict major damage to our 2nd Amendment before US citizens even understand what has happened. Obama can appear before the public and tell them that he does not intend to pursue any legislation (in the United States) that will lead to new gun control laws, while cloaked in secrecy, his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton is committing the US to international treaties and foreign gun control laws.
Does that mean Obama is telling the truth?
What it means is that there will be no publicized gun control debates in the media or votes in Congress. We will wake up one morning and find that the United States has signed a treaty that prohibits firearm and ammunition manufacturers from selling to the public.
We will wake up another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that prohibits any transfer of firearm ownership.
And then, we will wake up yet another morning and find that the US has signed a treaty that requires US citizens to deliver any firearm they own to the local government collection and destruction center or face imprisonment.
This is not a joke nor a false warning. As sure as government health care will be forced on us by the Obama administration through whatever means necessary, so will gun control.
Please forward this message to others who may be concerned about the direction in which our country is headed. Straight into socialism if Obama has his way…
We are being led like a lamb to the slaughter (Socialism/Dictatorship).
I fully realize that people who do not study the issues that have affected the demise of freedom in America, are loathe to believe that America could once again crumble into social division, where brothers kill one another, and I admit that until I diligently studied these issues, it was inconceivable to me that family and real friends could ever murder one another. NOT ANYMORE!
My eyes have been opened by learning just how despicable it is to force a one size fits all political opinion on everyone. Especially, when it makes so much sense to peacefully separate. I can find absolutely nothing-illogical about two people separating when their world-views are incompatible. So, to take away my ability to defend my person is only going to happen after I’m dead, and have taken several enemies with me. You can take that to the bank! It has happened before, and it will happen again, right here in the good ole U.S.A.
By keeping up the present rush to equip yourself with weapons and ammo, you will be making a national statement that cannot, and will not be ignored.
Some may say that I am happy to end this elusion of solidarity in America, but they have little idea how big the lie is, that we ever had it. And when I discovered that American’s had been beguiled from the get go, it produced a grief in me that will never go away. Simply because I had bought the lie too!
Loving the American elusion is like loving an unfaithful wife and son. We have never governed America, and we never will. Self-government is an elusion that is as attractive as having the most beautiful woman alive, and just as impossible to obtain. The best we can do is to try to protect our politicians from the International Investment Bankers and their corporations, and only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can accomplish that, which is something that has never existed, or ever will.
When the SHTF, you’ll need a gun in your hand!

The title of this piece is something I have been asking myself for quite some time now. I know that I am not the only one who sees it, but sometimes I feel as though I am among an ever diminishing few who can see that our country is slowly but surely self destructing. In 1781 Thomas Jefferson provided us a hint as to what could bring this about. From his Notes on the State of Virginia, " It is the manners and spirit of a people which preserve a republic in vigor. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution."
Be ye Republican or Democrat, like it or not, our country was founded upon certain principles which allowed us to become great among nations. As long as we adhered to those principles, did not tinker with the plan so to speak, we would continue to be great. But, unfortunately we have forgotten those principles and allowed evil and corrupt men to gain the seats of power, resulting in the mess we now find ourselves in.
In an essay published in 1748, Samuel Adams stated that "[N]either the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt. He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who, so far as his power and influence extend, will not suffer a man to be chosen into any office of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man."
That job, the selecting of wise and virtuous men, was bestowed upon us, the electorate. But, how are we to accomplish it with any level of proficiency when the majority of the populace are totally ignorant of the principles upon which this country was founded, and when we allow our emotions or needs dictate who we will cast our votes for?
Now I am not saying people today are stupid, but they are ignorant. Being ignorant simply means that they are lacking knowledge or education in general or in a specific subject. But whose fault is that when knowledge is readily available? Whose fault is that when people will spend all day glued to a television watching sporting events, but they won't take the time to pick up a book and read something that may educate and inform them?
To put it plainly, the fault lies with us, the American people. We have allowed our government to grow into this monstrous beast that devours our liberty and seeks to enslave us. We have not held those whose job it was to protect our rights and liberty accountable.
It doesn't matter who is in office, I always hear two things, and they are quite similar. First, people say that the guy in office inherited this mess from the guy before him, and secondly, we have to give the guy a chance to fix the mess left to him by his predecessor.
That alone shows how ignorant people are as to how our system of government was supposed to function. According to the Constitution the president cannot create law, that power is delegated solely to Congress. The president can either sign a bill into law, or veto it, nothing more. So, when people cast their vote for a presidential candidate, be they Republican or Democrat, based upon all the things this person says they will do, then they do not know how our government is supposed to work. Instead they should be voting for Senators and members of the House who will push forward bills to do these things.
However, like it or not, we are a nation of laws, with the Constitution being the Supreme Law of the land. In the 1866 Supreme Court case of Ex Parte Milligan, the court ruled, " The Constitution of the United States is a law for rulers and people, equally in war and in peace, and covers with the shield of its protection all classes of men, at all times, and under all circumstances. No doctrine, involving more pernicious consequences, was ever invented by the wit of men than that any of its provisions can be suspended during any of the great exigencies of government. Such a doctrine leads directly to anarchy or despotism."
As I was growing up I would walk down the hall and pass a framed needlepoint that my mother had made and hung on the wall. I later found out that it was a quote taken from John F. Kennedy's Inaugural Address. It said, " And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you ask what you can do for your country." How many people go to the polls today and cast their vote with that thought in mind?
There is a quote that is supposedly attributed to a Scottish Lawyer named Alexander Fraser Tytler which best describes the process that is occurring in America today, " A democracy will continue to exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From then on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship." With our nation currently being $16 trillion in debt, I would say we are well on our way to fulfilling that prediction.
Again, who is to blame for all this? You could say it is our elected officials, but that is like saying who is responsible for an unruly kid, the child, or the parents whose job it was to watch him and discipline him when he misbehaves?
So, how did all this happen, how did we let the greatest country on earth to go from a land where our rights and liberty was of paramount importance to a land where we are controlled and regulated by the very agents who are sworn to protect our rights? It is pretty simple, and can be summed up by something Josef Stalin once said, " America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within."
You may be saying that communism died with the fall of the Berlin wall and the ensuing collapse of the Soviet Union. Not so! Just because a person does not come down sick does not mean that viruses do not surround them. Communism is alive and well, and is slowly destroying this country.
I know that many of those reading this do not remember the height of the Cold War, but one of the Soviet Leaders, Nikita Khrushchev once said ," I once said, "We will bury you," and I got into trouble with it. Of course we will not bury you with a shovel. Your own working class will bury you."
There was a guy named Ernest Cuneo, who aside from being a professional football player, was a lawyer, newspaperman, and intelligence liaison. In 1969 he wrote that, in his farewell address, Vladimir Lenin stated, " Take your example from the good housewife who finds use for even a broken shoestring. A good Communist finds use for everything, and nothing is more useful than a useful idiot." And believe me, America is full of useful idiots these days.
I wonder, how many people have sat down and read the 10 Planks of the Communist Manifesto? In this pamphlet Marx talks about how a capitalist society would eventually be replaced by socialism, and then eventually communism. In Section Two of his manifesto, Marx lists 10 things that must occur for socialism, and eventually communism, to take over in a capitalist society. Take a few moments to think about these things, and then ask yourself where America is headed.
1. Abolition of private property and the application of all rents of land to public purposes.
What do you think the Bureau of Land Management and all the zoning laws are about? Do some research into allodial titles as well if you think YOU truly own your land.
2. A heavy progressive or graduated income tax.
And yet we constantly hear that the rich, or the bourgeoisie as Marx called them, are not paying their fair share.
3. Abolition of all rights of inheretance.
We're on our way with this with estate taxes or probate laws.
4. Confiscation of the property of all emigrants and rebels.
What have I been writing about for all these years? The Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, NDAA, all designed to label ANYONE who disagrees with the policy of their government as a terrorist threat, (rebel).
5. Centralization of credit in the hands of the state, by means of a national bank with State capital and an exclusive monopoly.
Two words, Federal Reserve.
6. Centralization of the means of communications and transportation in the hands of the State.
Here again we have the Department of Transportation, the Federal Aviation Administration, the Interstate Commerce Commission, and the Federal Communications Commission, not to mention a whole slew of Presidential Executive Orders, which I have also written about in the past.
7. Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state, the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.
Department of Agriculture, the Department of Commerce and Labor, Department of the Interior, the EPA, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Reclamation, National Park Service all sound like governmental control of the land to me.
8. Equal liability of all to labor. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
Does minimum wage sound familiar? How about these volunteer work forces President Obama mentioned during his first run at president in 08? What about Labor Unions, don't they sound like industrial armies in that they 'urge' their members to vote for certain laws or candidates?
9. Combination of agriculture with manufacturing industries, gradual abolition of the distinction between town and country, by a more equitable distribution of population over the country.
What about the slow death of privately owned farms and the growth of huge entities like Monsanto? Or you could check out the Planning Reorganization Act of 1949, and Executive Orders 11,647 and 11731 as well as Public Law 89-136 all of which provide for forced relocation and forced sterilization programs.
10. Free education for all children in public schools. Abolition of children's factory labor in its present form. Combination of education with industrial production.
This is where they screwed us over royally, and I'd like to take a bit more time discussing this one.
Almost every single founding father, at one point or another, discussed the importance of educating the people as to the values of liberty and the principles upon which our republic was founded.
Samuel Adams said, " No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffused and Virtue is preserved."
John Adams said, "Children should be educated and instructed in the principles of freedom."
Dr. Benjamin Rush said, " Freedom can exist only in the society of knowledge. Without learning, men are incapable of knowing their rights."
Noah Webster said, " Every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. He should read books that furnish him with ideas that will be useful to him in life and practice. As soon as he opens his lips, he should rehearse the history of his own country."
James Madison said, " Knowledge will forever govern ignorance; and a people who mean to be their own governors must arm themselves with the power which knowledge gives. Learned Institutions ought to be favorite objects with every free people. They throw that light over the public mind which is the best security against crafty and dangerous encroachments on the public liberty."
Thomas Jefferson said, " I think by far the most important bill in our whole code is that for the diffusion of knowledge among the people. No other sure foundation can be devised, for the preservation of freedom and happiness…"
And finally, James Monroe, the fifth President of the United States for those who may not have heard his name before, once said, " It is only when the people become ignorant and corrupt, when they degenerate into a populace, that they are incapable of exercising their sovereignty. Usurpation is then an easy attainment, and an usurper soon found. The people themselves become the willing instruments of their own debasement and ruin."
So you tell me, pupils of the public indoctrination, I mean education system, how well do YOU understand the Constitution and the Bill of Rights? The easiest way for a government to assume powers over the people they are supposed to represent is if the people do not know the limits to the powers of their government in the first place. If government gains control of the educational system, they can dictate how much our children are taught about the principles upon which this nation was founded. We trusted government to do what is right, to educate our kids regarding these vital principles, but government let us down. While we were too busy watching TV whole generations of kids have been indoctrinated into these socialist principles and now we have an army of voting youth who are of the belief that it is, in fact, the government's responsibility to take care of them, to make the playing field level for everyone. And if you care to look it up, that is what communism is all about, creating a society where everyone is equal.
You may think that by voting Republican or Democrat you are changing directions this country takes, but you would be wrong. Since 1945 the Democrats have had complete control of government; the Presidency and both houses of Congress eleven times. Twice have the Republicans enjoyed such an advantage. Yet, on fourteen other occasions there were divisions among the powers of government. In some instance there was a Republican President with the Democrats having control of Congress, or vice versa. Other times the Democrats would hold the Senate, while the Republicans controlled the House.
So you can't blame either party, because a sitting president has the authority to veto any legislation which is destructive to the principles upon which this country was founded. Sitting members of Congress can vote against any law which violates the Constitutional limits to their power or infringes upon our rights. Yet NONE of this has happened. BOTH parties are equally to blame, and we are more to blame because we cared more about what was on TV than reading the writings of our founders and voting according to our conscience, and not for the lesser of two evils.
And remember what Stalin said about our resistance being threefold? Well think about the spiritual life of this nation. Look to see how God has been chased out of our schools, our thoughts, and our hearts. Is it any wonder this country is falling apart at the seams?
From his Notes on the State of Virginia Thomas Jefferson said, " All the powers of government, legislative, executive, and judiciary, result to the legislative body…The concentrating these in the same hands is precisely the definition of despotic government. It will be no alleviation that these powers will be exercised by a plurality of hands, and not by a single one. 173 despots would surely be as oppressive as one." He may as well have been talking about the 535 members of Congress and the one President we have in our federal government, as they all seek the same thing, more power for them, and more bondage for us.
And finally, this would not be complete if I did not mention the subject of immigration. I know that you all believe in this whole theory that this nation was built by immigrants. But in Federalist 2, John Jay had something to say about that. He stated, " With equal pleasure I have as often taken notice that Providence has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people–a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs, and who, by their joint counsels, arms, and efforts, fighting side by side throughout a long and bloody war, have nobly established general liberty and independence."
Now you look at the influx of immigrants into this country today, both legal and illegal, do they all have the same religion, the same language, the same thoughts on the principles of government, and the same in our manners and customs? I think not.
From the Children of the Crucible, Theodore Roosevelt said, "From the melting pot of life in this free land all men and woman of all nations who come hither emerge as Americans and nothing else. They must have renounced completely and without reserve all allegiance to the land from which they or their forefathers came. And it is a binding duty on every citizen of this country in every important crisis to act solidly with all his fellow Americans, having regard only to the honor and interest of America, treating every other nation purely on its conduct in that crisis, without reference to his ancestral predilections or antipathies. If he does not act, he is false to the teachings and lives of Washington and Lincoln; he is not entitled to any part or lot in our country and he should be sent out of it."
But no, we must be politically correct, we must practice multiculturalism and respect the traditions of our immigrants. Would their country do the same for us? No, this is America and by God if they come here they play by our rules or they can go home! So what we have is not a melting pot where all immigrants come out as Americans, but an ethnic mix where people come here expecting America to provide them with all the benefits they have not worked a day in their life to earn, and at the same time they walk around protesting how bad this country is. It makes me sick!
But there we have it, that is what has gone wrong in America. There are two final quotes that I would like to leave you with as I close out this long winded tirade. First, from the Declaration of the Causes and Necessities of Taking Up Arms, " Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them if we basely entail hereditary bondage on them." And secondly, John Adams once said, "But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever."
Well, there you have it, what has gone wrong with our founders experiment as to whether a people could be trusted to govern themselves. This last election, in which Barack Obama readily won over Mitt Romney, (not that Mitt Romney was such a great choice either), proved how far this country has fallen. When a candidate whose job performance has been pathetic, at best, who still has unanswered questions as to his eligibility to even hold office, who has two current scandals to resolve, both resulting in the loss of American lives, (the Benghazi attack and the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry), yet can easily be re-elected, it shows that the majority of the voting public are totally ignorant as to what this country stands/stood for.
America, you will be held accountable for what you have allowed to happen, either in this life, or the next. For America HAS fallen, our constitution is all but dead, and the fat lady is warming up, getting ready to take the stage.

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

THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA HAS ABUSED ITS POWER, AND THE ALTERNATIVE MEDIA IS DEMANDING ACCOUNTABILITY
1. Hyper-attention On A Particular Event, Issue, and Mantra.
The mainstream media exclusively focuses on a single storyline about an event or an issue, which has the effect of marginalizing other points of view that are equally valid, if not more so. Narratives, not facts and objective data, have taken center stage in the aspiring journalist’s mind. Journalists and editors who oversee the making of the news play the same role as screenwriters in the filmmaking process. Their power stems from the fact that the public looks at news as “real,” whereas they know movies are totally fake. But news in the United States and the West is the farthest thing from being real.
Journalists who are in the service of the U.S. intelligence community and other government intelligence agencies are messengers for power. Their job is to repeat government narratives and government mantras. For example, Al-Qaeda is a mantra, not an international terror organization that is at war with America. Read, “Al Qaeda And Human Consciousness: Al Qaeda, Al Qaeda. . . . An Incessant And Repetitive Public Discourse,” by Prof Michel Chossudovsky. The “Arab Spring” is another mantra that Washington has used to fulfill its foreign policy objectives in the Middle East.
The latest mantra that the mainstream media is using in a domestic context is the “fiscal cliff.” Media messengers for the tyrannical establishment do not discuss how the Federal Reserve’s private moneymachine, Wall Street bailouts, and the military-industrial complex’s wars have caused the skyrocketing of U.S. debt. They just keep repeating “fiscal cliff,” and then offer bipartisan solutions that will benefit the banksters in power while destroying the living standards of middle class taxpayers and workers.
By focusing on the “fiscal cliff,” rather than the Grand Canyon of Deception that is the unconstitutionalFederal Reserve system, the mainstream media legitimizes the looting and pillaging of the American people by the transnational banksters.
2. Production of Fake News Reports.
War propaganda is not a new feature of warfare, but the modern Western mass media has taken this art to its highest technological development. What the American, Israeli, and Western media accomplished on the day of September 11, 2001, is simply astonishing. 9/11 was a riveting Hollywood production, from start to finish, from morning to nightfall. It made Hitler’s propaganda team weep from the beyond. But the official 9/11 story is just one example of how news is manufactured by the government in tandem with the press.
Examples abound in Syria. Propaganda stations like CNN, Al Jazeera, and BBC have reported on fake massacres by the Syrian government, made up the size of anti-Assad protests, and generally exaggerated the intensity of the hatred for Assad within Syria. We cannot rely on the official number of the people who have died in the conflict because the malicious media routinely makes up figures and repeats them until they become accredited as facts.
Up to now, the Western media has painted a very rosy picture of the anti-Assad “rebels” who are foreign-funded Jihadist terrorists, while minimizing the suffering and needless deaths of Assad’s supporters like Syrian-Palestinian actor Mohamad Rafea.
We can clearly see that the revolution in Syria is an imagined revolution and not a real revolution. The Arab Spring is not like an organic plague that spreads from country to country. The U.S., Turkey, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia transported the Arab Spring into Syria, and it met resistance from the politically aware Syrian people and the powerful Syrian state. This is natural because there was never a demand for a violent Jihadi revolution in Syria. The anti-government sentiments in Syria never reached the level of despair, unlike in Egypt, Bahrain, and other countries in the region.
3. Omission of Facts and Alternative Opinions.
Since the mainstream media operates in a politically constructed universe, facts that contradict the word of the U.S. government are suppressed. The integrity of the fake universe is preserved at the cost of destroying the real universe.
Those who have a different opinion of events that transformed America like 9/11 and the 2008 bankster bailout are ridiculed as crazy. When you express alternative opinions that conflict with the official narratives of the U.S. government you are accused of being paranoid, conspiracy theorizing, aiding Al-Qaeda, and drumming up fear for ratings. To learn more about how media propaganda against dissent works, read,“The Propaganda Battlefield: Militants Abroad, Conspiracy Theorists At Home.”
Canceling out reality may work for a while, but it has the last word. It is getting harder for the mainstream media to ridicule independent investigators as conspiracy theorists for pointing out that the U.S. and its dictatorial allies are sponsoring Jihadi terrorism against Syria. Even mainline journalists are beginning to admit it. How can they not? It is pretty tough to cover-up reality.
There are videos of Jihadist mercenaries mass executing civilians and the Western media spin machine is powerless in the face of this kind of explosive evidence. They will just look foolish if they say mass executions by anti-government terrorists isn’t happening and that all the blame for the crisis in Syria falls on Assad’s shoulders.
4. Mass Indoctrination of The Public Through Myth and Ritual.
The example of the 9/11 ritual proves that we think mythically, not rationally. It is easy for a totalitarian government with vast media resources to condition the public and put it under a spell indefinitely. The trouble arises with the arrival of a competing narrative, one that is actually based on scientific facts as opposed to propaganda.
But a sustained media campaign to brainwash the public in combination with the trauma of terror can effectively keep the public under the government’s spell for a very long time. Read, “Seven Ways Events Like 7/7 Empower Socialized Warfare,” to learn about the effectiveness of false flag terrorism. Also, read,“7 Reasons Washington’s Grand Counter-Terrorism Myths Persist In The Face of Evidence.”
What is it about mass public rituals that galvanize political leaders and embolden them to take radical action that otherwise would not be accepted by the majority of the public? They are trigger events that create mass panic and chaos, resulting in greater government power over the minds of spellbound citizens. Martin S. Day, author of the book, ‘The Many Meanings of Myth,’ says there are six sociological purposes of cultural and social rituals, and you can read them here.
When an entire civilization is emotionally and intellectually invested in a particular myth, it is nearly impossible to divorce the civilization from the myth. How has the 9/11 myth benefited Western civilization? In terms of war, the West has been politically able to wage aggression against numerous innocent countries in the Middle East by holding up the 9/11 myth to the rest of the world as a moral justification for its war crimes.
But America and the West has also been destroyed because of the 9/11 myth and the illegitimate global war on terrorism. Economically, politically, morally, intellectually, and spiritually, Western governments are reaching the point of bankruptcy.

THE TRUTH NO LONGER MATTERS,
SO SHUT UP AND DRINK THE KOOL AID
By Dave Hodges
How does a President who used an ambassador to run guns through the CIA, to al-Qaeda, and then was complicit in his murder and then fired two senior military officers who tried to save the Ambassador’s life and then manage to get himself re-elected to the highest office in the land? Well, in a word, ignorance is the answer. I fear that America is about ready to pay a steep price for her slumbering ways.
The abovementioned transgression should be enough to put Obama in irons for the next 30 years. Yet, the American people rewarded him with another presidential term..
After you read the following short list of Obama transgressions against the Constitution and the American people, ask yourself how safe do you feel with four more years of Obama?
Obama is not even a citizen of the United States, as determined by several researchers including Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff, Joe Arpaio. Obama’s long form birth certificate was declared a forgery. Yet, America elected this illegal alien to a second term.
Under the Obama presidency, America has seen her national debt double and financial collapse is right around the corner. We have seen our allies jump ship in record numbers. We have over half the country on welfare. The Obama administration paid 22 billion dollars to help GM relocate most of its operations to China after the American people bailed GM out in 2008. Half of all college graduates cannot find fulltime work and most are saddled with crippling debt through their predatory college student loans.
Obama has closed a multitude of coal plants, thus making energy prices skyrocket. He has funded Solyndra and Pat Stryker’s Abound Solar with our tax money, to the tune of over a billion dollars, and not one kilowatt of solar energy was produced. The President is now leading the newest energy scam in the bio-fuel industry, namely, algae in which our nation is subsidizing millions, and soon to be billions to algae proponents including Warren Buffet, George Soros and Al Gore. The one thing that these men don’t tell you is that it takes 300 gallons of water to produce one gallon of algae gasoline. And of course, under Obama, gas prices have more than doubled.
Obama’s depopulation leanings are expressed in his national health care law which, in one fell swoop, placed nearly 20% of the economy under socialist control. Under Obama-care, birth control services are mandatory. Lifestyles which do not add to the birthrate are honored (eg transsexual) and given preferential treatment by the Obama administration. Obama’s health care death panels will help America continue its slide in life-expectancy where we are presently 51st in the world despite spending 10 times more than the next dozen nations combined!
It is clear that Obama is not a Christian and honors every faith but the worship of Jesus Christ. Obama has kneeled at the feet of our enemies and I believe that he ultimately serves humanity’s greatest enemy, Satan.
The President pushed for the NDAA which allows him to disappear and murder political opponents and critics such as Andrew Breitbart. Obama’s executive order entitled the National Defense Resources Preparedness, allows Obama, at the stroke of the pen, to enact civilian conscription and food confiscation along with the complete control of all industry by government. Under Obama, FEMA camps became operationalized and staffed. Does anyone ask why? Additionally, the TSA has taken its VIPR program to the streets in order to sexually assault more Americans in the name of liberty. If Obama has this much power at the end of his first term, what nightmare scenario will come in his second term?
As I have previously, Obama is an avowed Communist. Former communist party leader, Frank Davis was his father. Obama had his Harvard education paid for and had his political career launched by former Weathermen Underground thugs, Bernardine Dorne and Bill Ayers. Obama was raised to be a communist and now this despot has four more years to make the White House more like Red Square.
What could we have been thinking on election day? The fact is we were not thinking .The 47% of the people who are on Obama’s welfare voted to keep the federal gravy train rolling. Many of the 65% of young adults who cannot find Great Britain on a map, believe Obama when he says we can spend our way out of a depression. We are the victims of our own ignorance.
Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Obama will likely be golfing the day our economy becomes insolvent under his leadership. And that is when, the 80-90% of ignorant Americans will soon come to learn what many of us in the alternative medial already know, Obama passed the NDAA, The National Resources Preparedness and the death panels of Obama-care for a reason. Coupled with the fact that Obama has issued ten times more executive orders than all of the Presidents combined in our entire history which sets up the potential for a total dictatorship in his next 4 years in which I predict we will see absolute government by presidential decree. Be afraid America, be very afraid.
Obama signed an executive order to create virtual dictatorship
“When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny”.
